Please go back to school and then try this post again.

Seriously ??? - these girls are not being held back in pre-K - like your dismissive comment suggests. They're being held back in the middle school/high school transition. So don't be smart. They repeat 5th or 8th grade. And please don't act like it's not an advantage. It's insulting. I have no problem with whatever reason a family has for having their child repeat a grade - but it's definitely helpful to be at least one year up to 18 -22 months older then some of your opponents. Age based sports would eliminate that whole scenario. You just play with whoever was born the same year as you. Then it wouldn't matter at all what grade these kids are in. It works for soccer - it can work for lacrosse.

The M&D 24 black team just had a girl join their team who was a strong player on the 23's last year. She'll kill it at 24's. She's a great player - but being older helps tremendously.


I think there is a difference when I girl is held back at pre-k or held back at 8th grade. Of course physically there is no difference, but when a girl does it in 8th grade they have a extra year of experience/LAX IQ. Which I think helps a lot.

Hard to like or dislike when I can’t follow the illiteracy.

I know Sw 24 blue has a girl that was a 23 last year. Moved here from Connecticut and reclassed for school. Girl is best player on that team so it does make a difference!

Agreed 100%. My 2025 daughter (just turned 13) is no where close to puberty (per her family Dr) and she is going against "young women" on some teams. (Yes I know them personally on MnD Blk who are actual 2024 ages). However, when they mature in H.S. you'll see the top clubs even out. The early middle school year dominance of MnD blk teams goes away. They are still great teams nationally, but are more inline with the other great teams in HS. Look at the 2021 and 2022 blk teams. Once unbeatable in middle school, and now solidly in the top 10.

This argument is a bunch of nonsense. MnD, Heros and SW always draw the best talent early. Those girls are typically the biggest, fastest, strongest for their age at the time. They get the best coaching and play (a lot) against the best teams. By 8th/9th grade, the strong girls on all of the other teams have all consolidated to MnD, Heros and SW and those teams begin to balance out against the rest of the best teams in the country, YJ, Mass Elite...
My daughter is a 2021 on a very strong Maryland team and there is only one girl with a birthday before 9/1, the date for school cutoff in Maryland. Reclassifying is a fools errand.

Red players don't count: please stop posting.

There are two reasons why M&D Black wont be at NATIONALS. One, their best players don't qualify and second why not stay home and double dip to collect the $? I mean we all know what this is all about.

Does anyone know why we have to pay a individual registration fee for the NGLL if the team/club is paying an admission fee ?

Just a money grab. It started last year as a way to siphon extra money from parents.

No, the NGLL is a new league that requires special funds and special referees that normal tournaments do not require. The NGLL leadership must be new to this whole lax thing and must not have realized the total amount of funds needed. Right?
Who could have possibly added additional fees the clubs balked at and then thought, well I'll pass it on directly to the parents. They will pay anything. No way possible someone thinks like that. Mwahahaha!
