No need to freak out. I said club recruiting connections are not as important as they used to be. That has nothing to do with YJ or Legacy. It's simply a result of the recruiting rules change. You go berserk and go on the attack. It's pretty odd. I guess you're very self-conscious or something. Either way, I'm sorry my opinion bothers you, but it's still my opinion. Last I checked, that wasn't illegal.

You are obviously just too dense to understand you are being insulting and a few of your quotes below are bashing YJ.
"YJ went from "elite" to accepting anyone"
"only place where the customer kisses the business' butt"
" Its cult like"

Your club connections comment are also ignorant.


You're obviously too dense to realize this is an anonymous forum and I may well not have written those other statements - which I didn't.

But since you brought it up, at least the first one is correct. YJ does accept nearly anyone. CR takes the number of girls trying out, divides by 24 and that's the number of teams for the grade. The few extra are cut unless they can be combined with the extras from a grade younger, in which case she'll add a combined team. If you don't know that, shame on you because everyone else inside and outside of YJ does. Again, nothing wrong with it as long as people are willing to pay for it, which they are. She's a good business person which is why she likely has more money tucked away than anyone on this forum. God Bless America!

YJ isn't the only place the customer kisses the business' butt. It happens in all youth sports because parents think it will help their kid get ahead. I think this is funny to watch myself.

YJ is cult-like - I don't think that is true.

And if my club connections comment is so ignorant, please do explain why. "Your club connections comment are also ignorant." is kind of vague.

I understand your point. But that’s not this guy. Believe me


dense parallel, that guys was a well established and seasoned basketball coach before he made the switch, not just a Daddy.

With that lay off Team Dad. He's a really nice guy and spends a ton of his own time organizing stuff that no one wants to deal with while expecting nothing in return.


Never said he wasn’t a nice guy. He has no business being on the sideline coaching.


You should be happy that he's there, the Majet team would be in shambles without him. I don't think he'd be so hands on if he didn't have to be, but CR will fix that eventually. Sad when selflessness gets you ripped online.

Not the original poster but here’s my take

Team dad is a nice guy who does a lot. I would agree he probably shouldn’t be coaching.

Majet is a terrible coach. She has no idea how to relate to 4th grade girls. And she certainly has no interest in making every girl on her team a better lacrosse player. What’s funny is that for such a “tough” coach she can’t even address the parents on the team. She makes team dad do it.

Part of the cult requirements is that parents wear and display more swag then their kids. Pretty funny watching the lemmings

The plan was for Kolb to run that team which would have been a great situation for all, but it just wasn't meant to be and didn't work out for a number of reasons. The current leadership situation is untenable and will be addressed by the organization at some point. It's just not worth getting too worked up about right now where they are only in fourth grade.

Not sure who K is....but anyone would be better than M. Super team dad put the team together with a bunch of smithtown girls and got him to coach. I think he’s part of the problem by compensating so much for M being terrible with little kids.

Almost half the team didn’t even return to tryout. If that doesn’t speak volumes, I don’t know what does. Hopefully they will change it soon.

Not sure I get the hostility towards YJ other than jealousy. I'm an M&D parent and YJ does the best job of any club getting their girls recruited by top schools. While I don't get the parents that are willing to pay the money for their girls to be on the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc YJ team that's on the parents, not the club. Are you saying that YJ shouldn't field teams when there is a demand for it? That wouldn't make any sense.

No, they should just say, thanks but no thanks, i don't really want the money! Seriously, i have no dog in this fight, but you like the club or you don't. I don't see why there is a need to act like a petulant child. if the parents want to pay for their daughter to be on a "C" team, then let them do it. Maybe they enjoy it. Not everyone has to be recruited to a top 5 program to make this a worthwhile endeavor.

100%
Very hard to make the top team at YJ. Looking at the past decade the top 15 girls on the A team (blue)go on to play at top 10 programs. The Gold or B team sends most kids to lower D1 schools like Holy Cross, Hofstra and Binghamton. The C team sends girls to low D1, D2 and D3 schools. If your daughter wants to play lacrosse in college there is a school for her. Playing on YJ it gets them exposed along with other programs, but the most beneficial part is the friends them make and the fun times and memories they create. Getting to Maryland or UNC isn’t everyone’s goal but that don’t mean you can’t have fun. And play club ball. YJ offers a ream for all levels of skill. Yea it’s a business but a good one.

Lafayette #99 doesn't belong in the conversation if we are talking about lax.
