Thanks for showing everyone here who you are.


You my friend are clueless. Having 2 kids now paying Division 1 lacrosse , I can tell you it is a family affair. It was during travel, it was in High School and it still is. Highs and lows along the way and worth every minute. Good luck to you!

Ahhhh, the my son plays D1 so I’m an expert. You’re no more an expert than the D2 and D3 parents. Get off your lofty pedestal friend. The only thing you’re responsible for is the tailgate. You don’t practice or play. Good luck to you as well.


You are mistaken my friend. It would be no different if my kids played D2 or D3 lacrosse. I’m still involved and continue to throw the ball around and shoot up at the high school with the. For me it’s not about the tailgates, I’m in the stands cheering for my kids and enjoying every minute. To bad you have nothing to do with your kids. You’re missing out.

He doesn't need luck. He has two sons in a D1 program and is taking advantage of the social connections - something he will never forget. They will share a bond for life. You on the other hand...you need a lot of luck. Get a clue....

Devastating for the seniors. Sad.


Many were waiting for answers, but recruiting is put on hold with coaches focused on returning their seniors, and over 400 on the transfer portal. Not good for anyone.

Same is true for the MIAA here in Maryland...announcement was made today. I have a senior player and yes, it is very sad.

Missing the point my victimized friend. As stated, I go to games, support my kids. I’m not part of the team. It’s their team, and I support them wholeheartedly. Stop making it about you, you’re not part of the team. Sorry your boys season is cancelled. Life’s tough.

I fully understand what you're saying. I support my son, his team, etc. I'm not a part of the team, nor do I want to be. It boils down to the kids playing the game itself, and the parents incorporating their version of reality show drama within that frame work. Some parents are just needy people, constantly craving attention. Not my circus, not my clowns!

The proposed NCAA waiver to reduce the number of non revenue sports will be devastating. You have to imagine lacrosse being a non-revenue sport that it is, could be on the chopping block at some of these schools. It's long overdue.

Women's basketball is by far the biggest financial drain on any athletic program. In 2016-17, the UConn women Huskies produced a revenue of $3.55 million while spending an astronomical $7.9 million. That's a loss $4.4MM.

School lax is great if your kid goes to a school with a great lax program! But if they go to a small school with a crappy program and your kid has to be in a certain group to get playing time then we rely on travel! So for all you parents that are teachers or board members that have your nose up the coaches butt Boo Hoo, haha!

"Certain groups," sounds like our district. Teachers, parents that have personal relationship with one another, parent PAL coaches/ board members, and parents who have personal relationships with BOE members.

Hah! I thought I wrote this. Glad someone else is on board with this concept. FLG/LILJ will purposefully not give any attention to some kids that are better. On top of that, the rankings are certainly not based on experience and solid evaluation. They got LILJ up and running for two years with maybe 2 on the staff. There is no way they could evaluate 100 boys and girls over the course of a season or two, let alone the rising freshman from middle school games. So they rely on coaches who provide the BS. High school coaches who don't play the game of daddy ball and politics or funnel the travel programs/training are ignored.

It's a joke. College coaches watch players minimum 6-8 tournaments (not games). FLG/LILJ and IL must be prodigies. But if you're from Smithtown West or WI or Manhasset or Syosset or any of the Maryland/DMV/NC schools who pay for mentions like they do to IL, you would understand those lists are 'ad space' like the rest of the online world. But LILJ and IL would never admit it because they are creating click bait to increase ad revenue and sponsorship dollars. Keep the churn going and any negative coverage like this helps garner attention.

Hah, you sound bitter. I guess your kid did not get written up. At least there is some press following the sport. They do make an effort to speak to coaches and players from many programs are represented both Hs and Club.
