They are all good, and some are very good, but they are role players at best and Express has more quality depth. And I say this as a father on one of the role players, so 91 dads don't get your panties in a bunch.


Now that is funny. Express has depth??!?! Then why do the same 10 kids never leave the field? You’re deluding yourself.


91 dads love to push that narrative, but the fact is, all of our players play. Not equal minutes; the top players play more, but that’s what every team does. Every time we play 91, they run out the same 11-12 kids and the rest sit and watch so please get off of your soapbox.



Wait a second, that’s not true. 91 plays most or all of its 20 kids every game and Express plays all 35? I think I have to call bull donkey on that.

Keep saying it. Doesn’t make it true.

Nobody cares about box ... This isn't Canada . The reason why 91 is good at box is becasue they play a speed game and love to hack, that sums it up.as for beating express on a real field......keep dreaming . Just as an example ....in the fall 91 lost to the Hawks and express followed that by spanking the Hawks 10-3. Not even on the same level as express so relax and be happy with the box wins . Go raise your fjnger in the air

That R U S H team is no joke. Don't know if they are at Express / 91 level, but a very good team.

Now it's 35? LOL! Express has a big roster, but it sits at 28 including goalies. Everyone plays. 91 has 20 and and 5 of those kids ride the bench when they get down against town teams. That organization is well run, with the exception of 2025. It has been the joke of the organization since they started.

Stop please saying that Express plays everyone we all know that is far from the truth , please let me know when you see kids on the sidelines that you have neve seen before and they are playing over your son ... This CoachC and how he does it is called $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$.... does not care about the kids , if you think i am wrong Please ask the older parents who are on CoachC team ...... GOOD LUCK with the recruiting in a couple of years !!!!!! LOL

That is a familiar sentiment among all the teams. The 25's are in disarray... except for Exp Ch....oiled machine..... R U S H isnt that good. Competitive but nothing to concern yourself with. So far I havent seen any stand out teams. Teams with potential, but all have major flaws. WSYL is a joke. Move it to East coast and call it the LI Invitational..... then it may be worth participating.

I think only top 4 teams should go... remaining qualifers are just cannon fodder. Love the idea of moving it to east coast. Has there been a team outside the tri-state area that's made it to the championship game?

Competitive, but nothing to concern yourself with. What does that even mean? The only thing I’m concerned about is my son and the team he is on. This is the difference with sports today. Wack job fanatics who have nothing better to do then rip other teams. I played travel baseball my whole life. I can honestly say my dad never seemed concerned or worried how good the other travel teams were. When did normalcy change.

It changed when events like WSYL were created...All of these people living vicariously through their children and actually believing 12 year old lacrosse will make a difference in their lives....go figure.

Realistically, you can send the top 12 teams. All but Express are just going out there to see mountains. If 91 AAAA plays a complete game (something it seems incapable of doing against competitive teams) then they are still a very distant 2nd. I agree with the poster that, despite our rose colored views, our boys are playing in a relatively weak LI class. Maybe next year when teams start really consolidating and the holdbacks are fully through puberty you may see some teams make a jump, but right now it's Express and everybody else. I saw 91 at the box tourney. Some of those kids are the smallest in the grade level. It may take years for them to catch up unless they replace them next year. R U S H seemed much improved due to recruiting big kids. Watch for that trend to continue.
