Orange Bracket:
Eclipse
Warriors
Express CoachMor
Express Haugen
Prime Time
Legacy

Red Bracket
Rupoop
Empire
Express Pomps
Express North Pearsall
Rebels
BBL




Thought more teams would have showed up.
No S2S or the Bandits? What other tournament is going on?


The better teams will be at the Maryland Elite Invitational

The B's go to that one.

Incredible that any LI team wouldn't have their kids attend the Elite 80. By far the best coaches in the country attend.

College coaches are focused on the 2021's and filling the rosters for that class. No one is looking to recruit any 2023's.

That's a negative Ghostrider. That's 11/17 and it's an Aloha tourney. Not even top Md. clubs go to those.

Actively recruiting 21's not doubt, but it never hurts for a good player to be seen by so many coaches here on LI. At some point next year every team in this class will be clamoring to get in front of this same group up and down the Jersey Trpk.

Is it true the Igloo Elite 80 has 8 attack per team for 2023? Wasn’t it promised to be 4? Sounds like a bait and switch.

This is why people skip the Igloo events and why they were blackballed from the NLF. Can’t trust them.

The Elite 80 isn't for everyone. It looks like there are half the team than the '22 session with 4 attack per team. If your son isn't good enough or interested in going to MD, Ohio St, Duke, Hofstra, Mich, Denver, Penn St, Gtown, Princenton, Navy, Cuse, Harvard, Hopkins, UNC, Nova, UVA, Rutgers, Farifield, or Cornell its probably a good miss.

Naw man. There’s 8 attack on the 2023 teams. Ridiculous. Can promise all the college coaches you want. But when you get 5 mins of playing time in a 30 min game. How’s that worth $450 bucks? Oh, and you were promised no more than 4 attack per team. I assume people will ask credit card for $$ back.

Ha you got duped. They were actively recruiting for kids a week ago. If it was that good would have been sold out months ago. They need a ton of kids to pay for these big Names to attend. They also have to turn a profit. 2023’s should not be doing showcases, they are not looking at you and your the showcases profitability bracket. Even the famed showtime is a waste of your money at this age, few years ago was different.

Nobody is going to disagree that Elite 80 pulls the best college coaches in the country to attend the event but the point of all showcases is to be seen and playing roughly 10 minutes if you are an attack player just stinks. Showcases are hit or miss to begin with depending on whether or not you have a good fogo and can possess the ball on offense. Couple that with limited playing time and it is a losing combination. The one upside is you can get your son used to the intensity of prospect days and showcase events which can be daunting but not for approx. 30 minutes over three games for $495. That's roughly $16.50 per minute of time.

I agree with that. But if AA promises only 4 attack on a team and then takes 8 attack are we as a community just supposed to say, “ you got screwed too bad”? Or should there be consequences for people like that who take advantage of fellow parents?

Some people will never wake up. Organizations know parents will continue to throw their hard earned money to events such as this. $500 for this, you gotta be kidding me.
