It's said; things become old fast. Express tryouts? Re-group and collect a new bundle of money. I guess I'll shell out more money for round two of uncertainty with them.

There are no tryouts. Teams are staying the same and rolling into the new season.

No chance. Every club will hold tryouts.

It's already been communicated that there will be no tryouts.

When exactly was that communicated?


In each of the Zoom calls leadership conducted with parents. Now, since that call occurred... i have noticed several new kids join teams

We switched teams to play on Express to get playing time at the HS level.

There may not be tryouts, but teams will NOT be staying the same.

The only thing 91 has over Express is they run the winter directors clinic which is generally very good. Express's clinics are ala carte. Beyond that, 91 nickle and dimes you to death. My experience with Express is, here is the price, you pay it and done. I remember 91 charging us $7 for helmet decals. Yeah. $7. We had to collect money from parents for that.

You all dont get it. Express does not reject anyone at tryouts, because they are more than happy to take anyone's money and overload the teams. It doesnt mean you will play, or even necessarily be on the best team in that age group. They say no tryouts to keep you happy so you pay your money. But they are always adding players. Beginning, middle, and end. They are adding them now.

Since most posts always seem to point to the negative. All things considered, In my opinion, the Express has produced a solid summer season.

If there are no tryouts, I'd have to think that parents of stronger players on the Express B teams can't be happy their sons won't have a shot at making A. Also, must be a relief to the bottom 3 or 4 boys on every A team roster.

C’mon stop it. Three clubs already announced tryouts. Do you really think there won’t be tryouts. That’s funny. And no players on the B teams will make any A teams, or they would be there already. You don’t really believe that any B team player is making the A team? You need a travel parent intervention. Be the best on the B team and enjoy that. Or go to some second tier club A team.

1/2 of players Express bloated A teams never see the field because they are just B level players. They are only on the A team due to politics, favors or $$$$. Everyone is happy until recruiting gears up.

Players don’t improve or mature?

Lol, that’s that thinking why B team player parents think they’ll be A team players. It’s rare on the elite clubs. B teams used be awesome at the big clubs. But the parents ruined the model in recent years, plus the saturation on clubs.

What 3 clubs have announced tryouts? I haven't seen any. Also, the best middie on the 2023 A team was on the B the team for multiple years. Things change...

Yeah, very very few. The problem is that there are too many kids on the A teams that don’t belong there. And parents hold out to be one of those very very few. And I don’t blame the clubs. If somebody is willing to pay to have their kid sit on the bench, that’s on the parents.

I am confused. I thought the top team in each age group was labeled AA and the next level was A. So is the top team AA overloaded with too many players?
