B team playing A+ teams, no chance


Makes no sense to have them play at that level. Kids will get demoralized quickly....play at a level where they can compete and keep trying to get better before moving up to AA events

As the original post indicates, there were less competitive pools. NXT would have been better served swapping places with Igloo.


Would have gone 0-3 in that bracket too... the beatings just wouldn’t have been as brutal


Pretty sure they could beat Sons.

Give me a break. Mesa, Freedom, Triple H and Brotherly Love are all quality programs at 2023

Are "THERE" not "their" good local teams? Mesa, Freedom, BL, and Big4 will have lots of kids who commit to college programs. Now that 2023 is HS level, that is the benchmark of a good program.

2020: HHH #11, Mesa #14, Rising Sons #20

2021: Mesa #25, Rising Sons #26

2022: Freedom #13, HHH #27

2023: BL #14, Freedom #15

2024: HHH #24

2025: HHH #3

2026: Tigers #4

Well if not teams have played a meaningful game in 2020 then the post from 11/15 should still be the same until later in the summer when actual games are played.

Based on the summer, looks like for 2023, BL still #1, Freedom #2, Mesa #3, HHH #4, Team 11 #5 then NXT, Rough Riders

anyone disagree? Mesa and HHH could be swapped I guess.

At 24s and older you are better off driving to NY or Baltimore if your kid is a high level player.

First of all, if you are older than a 2024 it would pay to stay at the great local national teams. Second according to US Club Lacrosse website the rankings are the following (used their latest summer rankings):

2021: Mesa #11, Rising Sons #19

2022: Freedom #14, Mesa #15

2023: BL #12, Freedom #15, Leading Edge 17 (not far)

2024: BL #16

2025: HHH #5, Mad Dog #10 (not far), Tribal #20

2026: Tigers #2

anyone disagree? Mesa and HHH could be swapped I guess.

When Mesa is healthy and the full team is playing they whip Freedom and beat BL more often then not like hey did last summer. When banged up with 5 kids out - on of their top poles and all 3 top O they lost by 1 to HHH then played them with them back and won by 12. HHH is closer to NXT/Team 11 Then top 3.

Mesa also beat NXT in the fall by 10 a week after NXT had manhandled BL.

BL is good but lets be honest they trophy hunt like the Sons used too and avoid the big events where they usually don't do as well. Player by player BL has the advantage at FOGO and G, Mesa has the advantage at D and Attack. Its a wash at Middie.

Overall BL & Mesa are tops in Philly at 2023 then Freedom. After that they are all pretty average with HHH probably on top.

Overall I will say 2023 isnt a great year in Philly.

Also please dont use US Club Rankings they stink and it depends on the schedule/tourneys you play.

There are tons of examples were a team is tanked like 20 but beat 8 of the teams ahead of them etc.

Hahaha--two years ago maybe. Actually more like four or five. Now the "full team" is missing a couple of kids without whom Mesa has become MiniMesa. Mesa hasn't played, much less beat Freedom in three? four years? And when they play BL, they can wave hi to their former best players.
