Time will tell all. Kinda quiet this year throughout the tryouts. Every player should have a roster spot by now. If not, that magical invite is likely not coming and supplementals won’t matter. The A teams don’t miss the better players at the first tryouts. If your son didn’t make the A team, it’s because he needs to improve or hasn’t developed his game as quick as other players. Despite what your may think. It’s okay to get cut, LI produces the best players in the country. Go find the right team where his confidence will soar and it will pay dividends.

The posts above were referring to R$sh not Rebels. There is a glitch on this forum that print R$sh wrong as Rebels.

Rebels team is not competitive with A bracket teams.

What does that mean. So did they get top players from other teams? Adding 2nd line kids adds depth, but won’t make the team that much better. Get a starter or two from 91 or Express will be an improvement, but doubt that happened. Sorry to be blunt, but that’s the way it is.

So true. Back a few years ago, I knew a kid that didn’t make either of the Team 91 A or B teams. He ended up on the Express B team. This was during the MS years. Stayed with that B team through HS. Long story short, that kid was the Suffolk County Midi of the Year his senior year and an All American. Not bad for a B team player!

There is B players and kids that are in between. All the in betweeners want that elite AA team. Usually the kid can hang with the team in practice, but can’t get playing time. That is okay. Go find a good team A or B with solid players and good coaching and you’ll enjoy these next 4 years, and so will your son. It’s actually the best path to the AA teams. But likely, by that time, you’ll be happy right where you are.

100% correct. Practice and training are very important but so is competitive game playing time. Especially at this age. Go where you are going to get good training and get playing time in games.

It's nice to finally hear some positive feedback on this forum. The whole point of this is to be helpful instead all the negativity. We should all want these boys to develop and actually get to play in games, what a novel idea? Lacrosse is a great sport. We should focus on working hard, having fun, making friends and memories. Last I checked, nobody was handing out nine figure contracts to play pro lax like we see in other sports. So let's not get too crazy.

Moral of the story is it’s better to be a big fish in a small pond, than the other way around. Sure, practicing with A level players is nice, but there is no replacement for games experience. Wins and losses and which team your kid plays on right now, in the grand scheme of things, does not matter. At all. This time is for development. Make sure your kid is maximizing his development, which includes a while lot of game experience.

Why does Rebels B team have a varsity coach. But their A team has no real head coach. That's ridiculous.
