We are getting ripped iff on LI . Tuition cost vs time playing etc its 1 big scam .

Agreed. The biggest problem is all these big clubs have their own tournament companies now. They make a lot less money by putting their teams in tournaments they don’t own. 91 is by far the worst when it comes to this

Agree. $3-4K as a "discounted" tuition due to COVID is obscene. All to travel to NJ and CT to play the same teams over and over. Insanity = doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. We complain and still pay to be on these "better" teams (i.e., 91, Express, Igloo) on LI because we think it will serve these kids better in the long run. Time to reevaluate lining these programs pockets. They're making out better than they did pre-COVID.

Absolutely correct . Dynamic is the worst offender. They put out about 20 tournaments per year (way too much) and then force their teams to play in them even when they're weak teams and brackets . When a coach decides he wants to take the team to a different tournament to face better competition the coach than has to go to the parents and ask them to pay for that tournament. Ridiculous. And more recently I have even heard that they even asked parents to pay for referee fees when they scrimmaged a team on long island . Awful .

Not sure about the other clubs but express has played every weekend for 4 straight weeks . When there hasn't been a tournament they have played at least two scrimmages per weekend and still going .

I’m not an express dad, and there’s plenty of people that complain about them. But at least they only run a few tournaments and not the absurdity of 91 and my lacrosse tournaments. This allows them to put there kids in competitive tournaments that they don’t own. Wonder if this is the reason why they are the dominate team (on Long Island ) at this age group ?

You hit the nail on the head . While there may be a lot of negative talk about express and I have heard them all . One thing I will tell you is that they actually seek out the best teams to play. For example last week they went to jersey and played the tigers from PA one if the best in the 2026 year . At express they feel that you only get better by playing the better teams . I know that 91 seems to donut differently and it's blatantly obvious that they play in their own tournaments where they control the brackets and face the weaker teams .

I get what you are saying about 91 getting stuck with own tourneys, but why is 91 MD getting to play in an NXT tourney this weekend and we are told we can’t on LI? PA is not on the travel restriction list which is why Sweetlax is going. The tourney isn’t on the “91 do not play list” as 91 MD is going, so why can’t we?

I may be wrong. But 91 Maryland is completely separate entity from 91 Long Island. As a result they are not tied to dynamic sports or my lacrosse tournaments. From what I understand 91 in other states is similar to you buying a franchise. Independently owned but still have to pay to use the name.

Sounds like you have some questions for the directors at 91. Why don’t you ask them ? I would . It’s a shame , from what I hear this current situation (pandemic) has really Shined the light on some decisions at 91 which a lot of people have always seen and left as a result . I guess the rest of you are seeing it as well. I guess that’s what happens when you’re owned by a corporate parent

At least they are getting out of here and going to play some new teams. My son and his teammates are so bored with the current setup of local only play.

You are correct....each club should have one fall and one spring/summer tournament (express does that as well as legacy ....) Then each club goes to each other's tournaments as well as some out if state teams and we reciprocate. This nonsense of dynamic (team 91) putting out 20 tournaments is pure garbage . They end up being weak tournament's filled with 91 teams anyway . Enough already.
