You guys really know all the birthdays on your team? My son has been on the same squad for 3 years and I probably only know half of the birthdays.

If VLC only has kids born after Sept 1, 2007 then it should be competing in the World Series of Youth Lacrosse (WSYL) in 2021. The Finals will be held in Maryland July 1-3, 2021 so distance/expense not an issue. March 27-28 is the East qualifying games for DMV & PA regions. Those games are in Delaware. VLC Dads is your team signed up?

For the fellow who was blowing the Hawks horn earlier, why are you so confident Hawks will beat CrabsA this weekend. The Crabs have evolved their roster and added a number of older 2025 kids to their roster. You can beat on the hold back argument all you want but their roster is within the rules. So with all of these changes and upgrades and almost no roster movement by Hawks coming into the Fall how can you be so dismissive of the Crabs chance at beating Hawks? One way or another this topic will be resolved by middle of this coming Sunday, but I am interested in what drives your confidence. Likewise, Looneys is a really good team who beat Express this summer. Why are you so confident Hawks will beat them if they play each other? Are the Hawks players really that good in your opinion?

The sooner you learn that 95% of the Hawks chatter on here is not actually from the Hawks parents, the better off you will be. And at the end of the day, if the Crabs win or lose. They still held kids back in the 7th grade for the sake of lacrosse. I can pick the clear winner already!!

Mesa PA played at Summer Exposure and they arent very good. I'd like to see Looneys and Hawks match up

Every tournament needs a doormat to stomp on

They did well in all Summer tournaments and was in 3rd place at HoCo. I am sure they would like to pick up some reclasses. Focusing on developing the real 2026s isn't a bad idea either. Looneys, Crabs and Hawks are all good teams. They made their choice of how they want to compete. BLC didn't have too many reclasses either. Not sure about MadLax. Point is well taken from this forum discussion: reclasses are common. We all need to acknowledge that and take it as part of the game rather than complaining about it.

The "95% theory" would explain why Hawk parents always represent the program so badly on this board; over-invested, insecure sports parents. The only problem with that theory is that things said said on this board are very similar to what Hawks Dads routinely yell during games.

VLC dad sounds like PLC dad from a few years ago. Insistent that their team deserved to play elite, then when they didn't said that they would embarrass every team in the AAA division as they went on to lose several games.

They did well this summer? Didn't they lose Blue Hen Classic to PA Roughriders which included a star studded field of NXT, Next Level and some other B level teams. If you can't win against that competition you are far from elite.

MadLax has at least one re-classed player, but not very many. BLC has a lot of Mater Dei kids so I expect that they have plenty of holdbacks.

Having seen VLC twice this fall, they are not at the Hawks/Looneys/Crabs level, but they beat FCA and BLC, and did well enough in summer tournaments to be ranked 13th nationally. Headed into spring I would peg them somewhere between 5 and 7 in the HoCo elite division. If indeed they have no holdbacks (which I find a bit hard to believe) that is not bad.

VLC also beat PA RR earlier that weekend, and there was no actual championship game. N0 one i saying VLC is the best team in the world, but as a top 20 team in the country you can't say they aren't elite.

They are elite with hardly any holdbacks and should do well this year.
