Seems like a pretty unlikely union

Mad Dog poached Tri-States people and now they are leaving Mad Dog. Grass only green in CA!


Seems to be a lot of dysfunction with Mad Dog NJ program...

My daughter will be trying out this year for some club teams. She is in 6th grade. What can we expect at the tryouts? What are the coaches looking for? What would be the best advice to give her about the tryouts?

It really depends on your daughter's skill level and goals (developmentally). If she is going to try out for a more competitive club, the tryouts will be more rigorous and the club will be more focused on filling a specific position. Other clubs may play a less competitive schedule and focus more on general player development. Its probably best to attend several tryouts in order to see where your daughter fits skill wise, plus its just good experience. If she is at a tryout that is way over her head, or vice versa, you will know it pretty quickly.

Thank you for your response. Yes she is trying out for a more competitive club. She plays defense. How long are the tryouts usually and what drills or skills evaluation are they looking at? What does the schedule of a tryout usually look like?

Some clubs have multiple tryouts, some with callbacks. They will usually run basic skill drills, perhaps then separate positions and run some offensive/defensive drills and perhaps run half field game situations. As I stated earlier, it will be pretty clear if you are in the right place once the drills start and you can compare the talent level. I think that the most important thing is to be realistic with your expectations. If you daughter is well suited to the team that she is trying out for, then great, but if it seems as though she is not close to the same caliber as the other girls, perhaps another club would be better. The travel schedule can be time consuming and expensive, you do not want to end up travelling all over the place in the summer if your daughter will get little or no playing time. Also, you are not married to the club forever, your daughter is young, you have plenty of time to feel things out.

Thank god there North team (Triple Threat Lacrosse?) is still around. Not a lot of other teams in that area - Steps, BBL, Dewlax and CLC. Steps tryouts have 90+ girls there, it's ridiculous. BBL doesn't really coach the girls at the youth level. Dewlax is a dumpster fire (definitely buyer beware). That leaves CLC and T3 that actually coach and develop the girls.

Its all about the money. Taking as many girls as possible onto teams many of which can't throw or catch, creating teams without goalies, "one team one family" = moving girls around from team to team across age groups to win games. No real player development of game IQ, they focus more on how someone throws a ball. "Connective Coaching" - if your daughter responds to getting yelled at and doing pushups constantly. Coaches value having girls run through as many people as possible rather than passing the ball and getting the open shot, incentives for scoring instead of getting the assist. There's more but you get the point. Go somewhere that will develop your daughter.

Girls can’t throw or catch, so coaches focus on throwing and catching...how is that bad coaching?

All Lax 2023 had a particularly impressive showing at Lax Amplified last weekend. They went undefeated against BBL Black, Dynasty and Xtreme 2023 teams. I think All American AIM has a strong program in South Jersey.

So bringing this convo current what is the general consensus of the hierarchy of the New Jersey girls lax clubs. From player development to completive scheduling to opportunity of training with said club to the strength of the club from the younger girls team to the HS aged girls?

Steps still a strong club especially due to legacy in space.
CLC amazing coaching and development. Best coaches! Growing

Bbl trying to invest in girls but still very much a boys club.
Coaching varies.
