This Colorado mid summer tournament is now a big nut thrown into the mix. Our team is qualifying and it’s exciting, but I’d love them to say, enjoy your 4th of July weekend, we aren’t going. I have a fairly large family and my other kids also play sports. I have a good job, but not the job where I can non stop lax money away on everything. It just stinks. Youth sports growing up was fun. My parents didn’t have any financial stress when me and my brothers played sports. It’s a shame what this has become.


Nothing wrong with loving the club and your sons current team and choosing not to go. However, you know your son would be crushed. So we are part of the same hypocrisy.

Who SHOULD qualify?
Who are your sleeper teams?
Who is the biggest “with they have no chance” team?

Excluding the price of a trip to Denver, this should be a great tournament


How many qualify depends on the other regions. Teams have been dropping fast from other regions so who knows.

Maybe Igloo.

True Blue, Rebels, rebels and S2S no chance, Regulators who knows

Maybe Igloo? What makes you say that?

PUBERTY is the great equalizer. We'll see if all the bigger faster stronger kids at pee wee level remain dominant. Most of them will not.

The point is that Tourney is ridiculous. May as well be played on Long Island... Same shizzle, more expensive stink. Wake up people!

I agree. Everyone knows it. Why go half way across the country? Besides, noone beating Express or 91..not from what I have seen. Just let those 2 play at some High School and save the money.

It’s a nice accomplishment for the team, going to WSYL. Winning that would be great. Something that’s not very easy to do. It’s doing it as a team, which makes it special. Picking up young 24s or picking up guest players, for that tournament, makes it not special. Id rather lose doing it the right way, then win dirty.

Not winning dirty - it's an age based tourney.

Your missing the point, the dirty part isn’t age. That’s a different type of dirty I agree. The dirty part I’m talking about is guest players, not on the team. Nothing like going to a tournament 9 months into a season, then all of a sudden kids you never seen before are now on your roster. Winning that way is dirty. I’d rather win, lose or draw with our guys. That’s what would make the win special.

Whaa, whaa, whaa, sound like a 91 dad . They boast about how their teams play up a year (up a year in horrible b brackets ) , then when they get beat by the Hawks or any other team they say "those kids were tremendous, they have to be older " and now it's " they play dirty , fly players in " blah blah blah . If your 91 dream teams are so darn special then just get on the field and shut up. The team of sour grapes and dense whiners =team 91

What a dense response to a valid point. The WSYL is in July, it hasn’t happened yet for this age bracket. Follow what is being said. I’ll try and translate in simple terms for you. My son’s team is all set. Roster has been set since Labor Day. I want this roster to stay together for the season. The season ends in July. I want to win or lose with this roster. I don’t want other kids joining the team in April, May or June. Even if those kids are the greatest players on the planet. I don’t want them. I want to win or lose with what we have now. Adding kids at the end taint the win. I’d rather not win, then win tainted.

That'swhat 91 WP did last year. They go out and recruit the top talent to win, They would not have won if they did not do that. Express does not need to do that. They will beat any LONG ISLAND team hands down. Don' t waste your money and go . My prediction this year. it will be a LI Team and and a team from somewhere else. .
