There are two other problems with UA:

1. The tryouts are the last before the event. Other regions pick their teams many weeks in advance and then have a chance to actually meet each other and practice before the event. The UA LI team practice once the day before.

2. Many top players make the team and then bail. If every kid who made the team actually showed up and played they would’ve been fine. That is selfish behavior and poor parenting. Then you have the others who leave early. 2020 team was down players all weekend. I agree it was an embarrassment, but not for the reasons being suggested. Kids on team committee to ND, Yale, Navy, Denver, Michigan, BU and others.....so save the narrative about how there were only weak players there.

Bottom line, the strongest players were not there to represent the region. Was the face off guy even ranked in the top 10 on LI??
NO.

WI hasn't dominated in Div 1 for a long time what makes you think they will be anything but above average in Div 2

If your son is Is a 2021 and Committed to a school he wants to attend, then don’t waste your time and money on this event. It used to be about repoing your Region. It’s not about that anymore. If your uncommitted and feel you can have a good showing in front of lost of coaches than go.

Winning at UA is all well and good, but getting on the team and having the chance to play at that event is what matters most. Denigrate it all you want, but every major D1 program is there and many have all their guys there. Even if some players opt out as rising seniors, most top prospects played UA at some point in their high school career. It is still an excellent way to be seen. Just look at how many kids commit soon after UA....

Considering the top 2 teams in D2 could compete with WM no problem, I doubt WI has a shot of anything above 3rd place

Give it a rest already. This was one tournament, six months ago. Or should we thank you for defending the honor of Long Island lacrosse?

I do not believe any of the posts that hype up West Islip are from West Slip parents or fans. Most likely from people trying to stir the pot. As for the top 2 teams in D2, pretty sure they would handle WM this year. WI has been decent but not great since about 2011. It's a toss up in D2 but I do not think WI will be in the mix. Most likely a new champ in D1.

Too bad your "top 10 on LI" son was afraid to compete. Good luck with that attitude on the next level.

I don't think the players are afraid to compete, it is the parents of the players. There are parents out there who can not take it when other players are recognized over their son. I have listened to some of them many times complain about other players receiving more recognition than their son, I have also listened to the parents complain about how tryouts are fixed, rigged, political act... and that is why they do not have their son tryout.

These parents think that their son is the best and it drives them crazy when other players receive more accolades and or recognition.

Funny that the St Anthonys to SWR transfer was one of the players that traveled to another region to avoid playing for the LI and the LI Coach which also happens the be the current SWR coach How about that for a turn of events and some kharma. truth is probably would not of made the LI team. Our son was on the LI team and it was a complete embarrassment hopefully it improves this year

Most of that UA team would not have made the team if the kids who were supposed to try out did . UA messed up tryouts running them with the Team USA tryouts . That is the reason why LI had such a terrible team . Still the UA tryouts are the best spot to get looked at by all high end coaches
