I agree they look to be poorly coached, but why not play your backup goalie in a game you will lose anyway? They need to give the kid playing time so you have to find games you can win easily or games you know you will lose to play him in. I am sure he'll get playing time against Zingos, VLC and Looneys in this league.

Any team/coach playing in the elite division who is going to go into a game with the attitude that they are going to lose anyway don’t belong in the elite division.

Actually, I’m the one that initially posted about the rec kids on Looneys, and my son does not play for Looneys. The guy that said I was “trying to make this a thing” was partially right. I posted this solely to point out to the elite club parents who always put down the rec kids, and dismiss them as if they can’t play because they haven’t been on the roster of an elite squad since they were toddlers, that this team is proving them wrong. I love the fact that this particular group of “rec kids” has been competing with and beating elite teams all summer, and are only going to get better as they get more experienced.

There is a ton of great talent in the elite division. All those kids have to come from somewhere. As these boys get bigger, faster, stronger, it’s all going to even out...and you will see that some kids that spent most of their life playing rec for $300 a season will suddenly start passing kids who played elite level since they could walk at a few thousand dollars per year.

I have an apartment in downtown Chicago I’m looking to sell; great view and quiet.


Racist are we? 91 or Looneys parent?

Why the step back for Bethesda this year? Seems like some teams upgraded and they took a step back after tryouts.

BLC literally has 5 boys in casts due to broken bones playing lax/ accidents. This in a team that only carries 22 kids.

On Sunday they had 10 minutes rest before they played VLC who was playing their first game of the day.

Take from that what you will.

Wow. That’s a lot of broken bones on one team. You would think that would be noticeable on a sideline, 5 casts.

maybe you need new glasses....

Looneys parent...It's 3 kids who came from Forest Hill that are contributing to the team. Rest of the team are the same kids who have been with us for years except 2 defensemen that we added from other elite level teams. Take it easy.

Because the kids that are good players and want to win will leave. Any coach who goes into a game thinking “let’s play our back up goalie because we have no chance to win” and thinks losing 17-3 is good for the team needs to get their head checked.

Elite division is not about equal playing time. It’s about winning. If you are not playing the game to win, you have no business in this division.

If those were the scores, then it sounds like RR did a huge disservice to their team by not sticking to what worked in the first game.

Relax, it's 7th grade fall lacrosse. All kids on the team should be getting playing time at this age. If the backup goalie is good enough to make the team then he should get occasional playing time.

Sounds like you're the racist; this board is about lacrosse not race baiting so go find someplace else to post your stuff.

Lol! "It's about winning." They are 12 years old, it should be about developing into a better player and having fun with friends this fall. Everyone wants to win, but these boys are still so far away from a finished product. Maybe you don't have older kids, but the best 7th graders are rarely the top kids in high school and beyond. And the parents of 7th graders who only care about winning are the ones who prevent their son from developing into a top player far too often.

Dear “Coach”,
Yes, you are correct on all accounts, and why there are such things as divisions.

Right ? The kid didnt get to play in the 1st game against Bethesda, so he was given a chance in the next game which happened to be VLC. Hope your kid never drops below superstar on the depth chart and expects to play on whatever juggernaut elite team your on.

This is Fall and not a League that would normally even happen. There are only 2 divisions, not the normal 5. If RR had played down in the B division you would be the people saying "test yourself" to get better. I guess we should just "Hit the wall".
