Totally naive here, but why would Express get rid of good players? I get why some kids might leave to find a better team, but you make it sound like they are deliberately cutting good players. Unless I am misreading. Not being argumentative at all. I’m just so confused by this.

My bad, LIE N., has a history of losing many (not all) good players and coaches.

My bad, LIE N doesn't typically get rid of good players. Players (good and bad) and coaches, often leave LIE N., for various reason.

I know of one LIE n., player, who is definitely a very good, was asked not to come back due to his Father's over-involvement. The Father-son combo, has been on three teams in as many seasons (2018-2020). Also, there father was asked not to return to the town recreation program.

Yes, but not all LIE N teams are set-up like you asked. The Dad-son teams are not limited to LIE N too.

Just to be clear; the father-son situation (3 team in 3 seasons) previously mentioned, the father only coached the town recreation team that his son was on. It was the town rec. program that asked the father to step down from coaching.

Totally varies by age group. Certain classes are solid with good continuity-- they are the better teams in terms wins/losses. Other classes have a lot of turnover, which is a reflection and cause of weaker teams, ex: 2023 team. When you lose, rotate players in/out every year, you will keep losing as best players jump to other club teams as weaker players replace them.

From Sec 1 and like to read most of the threads in the Forums.

Noticed the "Long Island Express Lacrosse" thread and the comment made yesterday about state of the LIE's 2nd (level?) teams and how those teams/players don't develop.

I know LIE North is on a smaller scale, compared to the LI market, but I was wondering how many 1st and 2nd level teams are there in LIE North? If you know of them, please include the teams yr, name and where they practice.

It would be nice to know LIE North's market share.

I know that '27 Zusi did well this summer, but i don't know where they practice.

North stradles the border between Westchester, NY/Fairfield, CT. At the younger levels they have two AA-level teams, one in CT one in NY and then as they get older they streamline down to 1 AA level team with the best of both those teams. They also have an A-level to develop those players that are right on the borderline of AA.

Practices have bounced back and forth this year due to COVID and rules. Darien HS, the old Trinity HS in Stamford and their usual spot at The H School or whever they can find a patch of grass.

Express North has always been a mess at 2023. Eclipse made the tough but correct move a couple of years ago to discontinue its 2023 A team and stick with a single 2023 team. The team stayed together for a couple of years and got much stronger. Now with the team nationally ranked reclasses are going to that team making it even stronger. So strong that the new A team is as strong as some 2023 AA teams.

Just curious why we're talking Sophomores on youth thread?

I totally agree with your statement; this thread shouldn't be limited to Youth and it should encompass all Hudson Valley lax (Boys/Girls youth and HS) matters.

High School and Youth are not so different. I think we can handle both on this thread.....
