OK Chip. We will even have a couple of kids from the 2025 team playing at the WSYL that have birthdays prior to Sept 1. So your 2026 holdbacks are even older than some of our 2025's. Come on Chip, the WSYL is in MD this year, bring your age appropriate team to it, get spanked and you can take your 2028 holdback to the Green Turtle after.

It's too early to sound this drunk....yet here we are. Put down the bottle Vinny! Your 5k is totally worth it. Hahahahahaha

The fact is your on here beating your chest how kids 2 years older are "the best" in the 2026 age group Chip. So go put some more Old Bay on your fries at the Green Turtle and when you have too many wine spritzers, at least you will have your 2026 stud as a designated driver!

Annnnnd triggered!!

Not actually true, but know what you're saying. Much better overall comp at NAL and NLF. My son is on age as a March 2008, but I much rather see him face the top 0226 teams vs. the ones that just fit the age requirement. Are you people going to wait until your boy is a senior in HS to let hm play varsity to avoid older players?

The older they get the age difference makes less of a difference.2025, 2026, 2027 still a big difference in the one year.

I truly hope you show. Win or lose...My kid wants to play the against best.

Time to put up, or shut up.
Your 12 year old doesn't care about the competition, he just want to play lax and have fun. YOU want him to platy against the Hawks so that if his team wins, YOU can brag to your buddies that your boy is a stud or more likely a role player on a really good team.


Lame. Put up or shut up!

With WSYL now in MD, now is the chance to prove it’s a B tournament.

More importantly, no more will there be the need to battle the holdback arguments...Don’t you want that to go away? Trust me, all on age kids do!

No more excuses bub...Time to put up or shut up.

True, but if your son has any chance of playing against seniors as a freshman or even soph, he better get used to playing against 7th graders who are a few months older than him without daddy protecting him.

Get a grip. There is only one age based tournament a year, and you can have all the rest.

All of this banter is pointless, the top teams are not going to build specials teams just for this silly tournament. It does not make any economical or logical sense. The US club lax has already identified the top teams. It is what it is, sorry that your team is at the bottom of the list.

The Express team is a better team. Everyone likes to make excuses, but in the end they are just better at this age. They have 3 or 4 kids on that team that are really good players. Their faceoff kid is lights out and they have a pole and an attack that are light years ahead of anyone at this current age. Good for them someone has to win !!

So why do they get crushed annually by Hawks, LXC, Tigrs , Eclipse, sweetlax & fca?

Everyone knows about the older kids on those teams and there is nothing you can do about it. Long Island is watered down! If there was only one program on LI and you chose the best for that team they would beat all of those teams. If the clubs got together and put an All Star team picked by coaches without kids on the team that team would be very competitive all over the country. That will never happen because the owners detest each other and would lose money. So until then Older teams like the ones mentioned will dominate.

Don't the non-Long Island teams have other teams in their area competing for talent too? Are their areas as big and populated as Nassau & Suffolk?

There is no doubt the Long Island teams are excellent. Great skills and maybe impressive the kids play really hard. I'm not from LI but my son is on a strong team. I think he might be struggling to keep up. He's small but December b-day so on the older side. I am really focused on him having a good experience (fun), getting better and getting high school ready. Probably not worth spending a significant amount of time arguing over who is better. The Hawks are probably excellent too.

Keep in mind - there are 2 ways for club teams to get better. 1. develop the kids on the team. 2. replace the kids on the team with better players.

There is a third way...hold them back in school to be a year older!
