You may want to check those scores. Not exactly accurate...
Sweetlax is very good, one of the top 2027 squads, but the weren't easily beating Express;

Sweetlax is the best 2026 team after Hawks, fact.

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 are lots of teams in the Hawks geographic area but for a mom to feel really important; she needs to have a Hawks sticker on the window of hew Mercedes SUV (or other minivan if they don't want to start). (Those stickers cost like $2500.00 and they throw in some cool sweats for your son, too.) Otherwise its like you are not really playing lacrosse and there was no point in having your kid fail a grade in middle school. In Long Island there are lots of great teams who each can win and they cannibalize each other, seeming less dominant. In Maryland everyone fights for second place at the 2026 level.

As far as the holdbacks I don't get the complaints. There is a 62 year old on my 45+ team and he does not seem to have any advantage over the younger guys. If anything the exemption guys (under 45) on the roster seem to have the advantage. I am actually thinking of moving some of our scooper's kids to the 7th grade team to see if the pattern holds up.

Hawks will gladly play Express anytime you like

OK, see you at the WSYL Chip!!

That's assuming Express makes it that far

The good news is, the rental space in your head is absolutely free.

Gonna be in for a big surprise at 13U. Not as many as you think for certain teams. Too many for other teams to be able to come and compete
