Not sure why you're so surprised 91 dad. The reason for the detest as you put it is your club is filled with parents with big mouths and trashy comments . So yes, people detest trash. One can only take so many lies and trash talk before they put you in your place . Simple as that .

It’s unbelievable some of the stuff you people post about which team is better . Talk about other organization, coaches . In the end this sport will stop after college if little Johnny decides to play in college if he’s not burnt out because he played 4 days a week since he was 7 . My nephew went to a great D1 program about 6 yrs ago and guess what he hardly got much money to play and now hasn’t pick up a stick in a yr. His time in college was 6 days a week of workouts , practices and sometimes 2 times a day. Never went on spring break . The coaches didn’t care how he was doing in the classroom etc.... Now he’s in the police academy very happy and could of done the same thing going to a local college and saving his parents a ton of money . A lot of these guys come out of school and say wow that was a fast 4 years and it was miserable a sport I played my whole life with no end result and no job ready . What’s next doing $50 a hour cash clinics ? Relax parents your team maybe better then that team and so ?? Enjoy it now because there zero future beyond college . JMO . Stop drinking the lacrosse koolaid and smoking the Laxcrack because end results is nothing . Enjoy the development for your young son because I bet he rather be riding his bike then dragging him all over the place because he plays for the “best” team . Also I love the dads that are insane and have Zero Athletic ability , I just shake my head and laugh look at this hammerhead !!!

Lot's of truth here. Lol. I spend 4 years in a D1 college sports program albeit not for lacrosse and much of this is true about life as a college athlete. If you are male and can get a full ride in football or basketball...go for it otherwise the return on investment is garbage and not worth burning your kid out.

Also I should add regardless of your kids stick skills, jump shot, forehand, or any other sport specific skill..... if they are not tremendous athletes with speed and agility and the speed is largely born with. (Read the research, you are not moving the needle much with speed training) they will not get that D1 scholarship anyway.

The girls that played tennis at a college I worked for were such tremendous atheltes that they would beat most guys in one on one basketball...... athleticism and speed trumps nearly everything.

Dam, why the heck did I go out and invest in the big SUV, along with the Yeti soft cooler? My little Cooper looks the part, hair cut, and matching swag. I drag him to at least 3 to 4 clinics weekly and speed and agility on Fridays . Since we are the picture perfect family, I just love talking about my son and self. I'm a PAL daddy coach, also a part of my towns lax program board, and a school teacher by trade. My position on the board allows me to control/ retain an advantage over the inner workings of our town program. Not to mention, I consider myself very knowledgeable and a mover/ shaker within the youth lax program. I've already spoken to Cooper's MS coach about his playing time and position on the team when he arrives. I forgot, I'm good friends with the District's AD, so Cooper is set. I have to admit though, he hates physical contact and lacrosse is the only sport he plays. He's a tough kid as long as I'm around. I don't know what he would do without me.

This is not a shot at anyone's post. I tend to agree with everything minus one small thing that I find important. The lax culture and landscape is filled to the B with success stories outside of lacrosse that started as a relationship on the field. Let's face it, the sport has money. I know guys on the west cost who are wildly successful because of a lacrosse connection and someone's dad owned this hedge fund or is CEO at that investment bank. I have no vision of my son making a dime off this sport past college, but the connections he can make, at least from what I see, can last a lifetime and are beyond invaluable. For me, any help I can provide to give him a leg up to get accepted to a school he may not get in to without lacrosse is a bonus.

Regarding the posts on Div 1 colleges...I've read that even at the best teams (Duke, etc.) there are only 12 or so scholarships, and so they have to be split between the players on the roster. My son is in one of the "big" clubs but I'd be perfectly happy for him just to make his varsity team when he's older, make connections and friendships, study hard, play for one of the good D3 or club programs, and leverage his education and connections for a good career. If that ends up happening, then all of this crazy club stuff we do is worth it....just my two cents.

Regarding 91...I am a 91 parent, but both of my kids have played a variety of travel sports, and in my opinion, there is no higher proportion of crazy lunatic 91 parents than there is for any other LI lax club, or any soccer program, or basketball, etc. Go to a big soccer tournament sometime and get a load of the some of the parent sideline antics. There is a standard distribution of people in all walks of life where some people are a*holes, some are super-nice, and plenty fall somewhere in between.

I agree that though they have to sacrifice a lot to be a student athlete there can be some fun and memorable life experiences they wouldn't get if they didn't play. Sure, certain opportunities can present themselves but not sure if anymore than if they put themselves into other venues of life and similar opportunities could present themselves.

I guess my posts is since 2% for D1 and a little more for D 2 and 3 of the young 10 year old players will ever become good enough to play at that level maybe some parents should temper their expectations at least untill they are in HS. As good as a kid looks at 10-11 with a stick there is a reason why such a small percentage plays at that level.

But sure, if your kid becomes that player and choose that student life and understand going in that opens that door and maybe it will pay off with other opportunities.
