Thank you for validating. This means '24 Madlax days of dominating are a thing of the past. Next question, is NL the new top dog?

Saw several of them playing for the '25 team at NAL.

It does look to be true. Just found the NL Rosters, and if you compare them to the roster on the Madlax 2024 website, you can see the kids that left Madlax for NL.

Don't know if NL will be the new top dog, but they are a classy program with great coaching that is definitely trending in the right direction.

Why did these players leave one of the best teams in the country? I know these players. It’s not over playing time?

I dont know about Madlax but for our team that saw similar changes after tryouts are done and teams set, HS is a big change up. Players start jockeying for positioning for their HS coaches who are likely affiliated with clubs.

Bingo, It is all about the HS Coach now.

Such a ridiculous conflict of interest. It shouldn't matter where a kid plays club.

In theory, yes, it is a conflict of interest. But the HS coach wants more time coaching his HS players. Perhaps the players want the same thing. Particularly at private schools, the better the team the more recruiting interest there will be for players on that team. Maybe both sides think it's in their best interest.

True, but, for better or worse, it does get a kid more playing time in front of their high school coach. While it seems much more prevalent in MD with the clubs being so intertwined with the private high schools, it happens everywhere.

I can't see how NL 2024 are not the top dogs at least on paper (but they have to play). They were decently strong and feared in the summer, and with their additions (not just from Madlax), they are going to be very hard to beat.
Fall is going to be interesting...... Since there is no Football, there should be no excuses

From what I know of the NL coaches, they do not care where you go to school. A parent may think its better for their kid to play where their HS coach coaches in the evenings, but that's just the parents. I don't thinks that the boys we are talking about needed to more to gain favor, these are some of the most highly recruited boys, who may have just been tired of playing for a certain coach. So going into HS they may have decided to switch to play with other friends who are also Top of the list players and with good coaches that don't play their son, before everyone else.

While NL may not care where you play, it's clear that they are trying to get cozy with SJC with that Next Level Cadets team that is mostly '22s but has a few younger kids, including the former ML '24 attack that played NHSLS for SJC.

I was not sure what that NL Cadets team was as yes it is all NL boys that go to SJC . But I will point out that NL coaches include Head coaches from at least 3 HS in the DC Metro area and but here we are making a point on the Assistant coach from SJC. There might be some accuracy in what you are saying, but over all, I think that NL got another very good young coach who has no family affiliation, that likes coaching the boys regardless of their school affiliation. And they put him to coach a team that based on the summer has A LOT of potential.
