Otherwise, let them battle it out with kids their own age and see how they do.
The top 3 ranked attack recruits at 2022 are all reclassed kids who played up at the club level until HS. Now that they are playing down with kids in their same graduating class, they are dominant. The combination of playing on age through youth lacrosse and falling back to their grad year in HS has served them well, the caveat being that they may well have been top 5 prospects in the class of 2021 had they not reclassed or done pre-first or whatever.

I believe they are all on age; could be the smallest of all club teams playing at the 2026 level minus the one Middie. Talented group of kids but the gap is closing.

If lax would follow suit and classify by birth year this conversation would dramatically change. I can't wait for the weak and worthless argument that one year doesn't make a difference and our kids are more skilled. Wait for it because here it comes...

Pretty sure the entire Hawks roster will turn 13 before August ends, I can't imagine how any one of the kids wasn't born between 9/1/06 and 8/31/07. They really should just own it and play 2025. They wouldn't be elite in 2025.

Pretty sure you are wrong. Source....My son is one of the kids on the team and will be 12 after August.

True Illinois wont give them a game?

At this point what would you suggest they do? Teams arent travelling like in a normal year. The clubs want to play so they can say they provided the full season. The kids want to play. Play who shows up.

Why didn't Hawks just go to Platinum Cup? They'd still be the best team, but much better comp overall and they were still letting teams register in the past week to fill NY/NJ slots that had to drop out.

They are avoiding True Annapolis (sarcasm font)

Not so sure about beating the Hawks, but I was wondering if any VLC Dads are on this forum; now we know!

I just compared the teams at Platinum Cup and Summer Exposure. (yes, I need to get a life). Let's wait for scores before saying one field is a waste of time but the other is worthwhile.

In other news, FCA is playing Pennsylvania Roughriders - are those the same two teams that had a brawl recently?

Yes, same match up...PA RR won 4-3 day 1, FCA won 4-3 in the championship that ended in the fight. Will probably be another FCA win tomorrow, but could be close and hopefully cleaner.

Really? PA RR played their A game twice and FCA its C game at best and still split 1-1. FCA in a blowout tmrw, no doubt.
