The R$SH team added some talent, included some older kids playing down, they're going to be better than most people realize at this point. Don't be surprised if they make a splash.

As for Legacy, a couple of their top players are hurt, and they may get steamrolled as a result.

Igloo and Rebels both lost some players in the offseason, but both are probably better than Legacy as of the tourney on Monday.

And as for Coach Captncrunch, let's stop pretending that his Express team is anything more than the collective result of various lacrosse parents' insecurities. Yes, they're the best team by far on Long Island and will win it all. But that's only because the parents already lost by showing their kids that the "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em" attitude builds better character than loyalty to your teammates. If a bunch of parents all of a sudden decided their kids were going to play for the Rebels, the Rebels would be the best team on Long Island. It has nothing to do with Express and everything to do with the psychology of parents who live through their kids. Coach Captncrunch is a high school lacrosse coach who is the biggest thing in the world of 12 year old lacrosse in Nassau County, New York. If you think that's a big deal, you must be a junior high coach of 11 year olds.

It will defenitely be interesting to see how teams gave changed since tryouts. Although if you are telling me R$sh is playing kids down who are really a year older (especially if they are not actually in 7th grade) that is just BS. And doesnt say much for them. But I wouldnt doubt their coach would do that. (Honestly though based on scrimmages they already had, I am not so sure R$sh is going to be that great. Or it may be they need time to gel if they made a lot of player changes.)

Rebels though doesnt even come close to Igloo. Igloo steamrolled them last year. And Rebels barely beat anyone. Certainly not anyone decent. What good players would be attracted to their team?? Like really?? And as you said they lost players who were probably some of the better players. No matter what the issues with Igloo, you cant even think Rebels are on the same level as them.

This isn't really a debate about whether we agree with the CoachC team model. Most of us agree that we dont. Although I do think you underscore the great coaching all those players do get. That's true. But I dont agree with the team overloading and kids barely if ever getting to play. Its nuts parents stay if that's happening to their kid.
But either way, their is no point in discussing them as regards the tournament. We know they will win their games and it's a question of who will face them in the championship. So they are just a nondiscussion.

That's just ridiculous. Clearly you dont open your eyes and watch the games then. If your actually interested in lacrosse you can clearly see what teams work together, pass well, have players who control the ball, have players who display field awareness and we can go on.
The fact is by the actual season in June and July although 91 and Express dominated you could still see that teams like Roar, R$sh, Force, Igloo, and yes even S2S Hawks showed they were better than most of the others. Whether after tryouts those teams will be worse or better is something we will find out. And honestly we may not find out in the fall. It probably wont be until June that you will really see the teams that develop.

steamrolled? hahaha. Igloo had to go up north to play nobody to win anything so just stop. They lost a bunch of players from the team that didn't do well last year. Its a new year and anything can happen (except express losing on Columbus day).

Igloo goes up north to play noname tournaments because they are being cheap and are only interested in lining their own pockets. So they put in their schedule noname less expensive tournaments. They charge outrageous tuition and dont actually provide a product equal to what they charge. They are not looking to avoid competition. They just want to keep as much of the tuition money as profit as they can.

I heard director at IGLOO had to step in as a coach because they were so bad last year. If thats true, along with the defections and not being able to replace with any talent ( thats what these posts all say but I have no clue) I wouldnt place your bet on them at this point. I can tell you my sons team played them last year and alot of those kids were selfish babies. Stick slamming, pouting, calling each other out and they flat out quit by half. If thats still going on I will take Rebels, Legacy, Ducks, S2S, Maddog, CoachC, Tru Blew and any other team out there to beat them as this is not a "Me" game. And if the new coach is a blow-hard, kids like that wont respond. They will fold. Check please.......................

You are correct. Director is now coach. But he is the organisation. Just about lining his pocket. Igloo has been destroyed by greed.

Blatant fall tournament on tourney shows Sour Grapes registered in A bracket. Who is Sour Grapes?
And in the B bracket they list 2 school lacrosse teams. Stimson Wildcats and Middle Country.
I assume those are middle school lacrosse teams but wouldnt that be mostly 8th graders. How can they play in the 2025 division?
