(person who asked the question about tryouts here). Honestly, after watching the mid Atlantic competition this summer, a MD A level club is probably the right place for my son. We're giving the ALC a try today. Thanks everyone for the feedback!

Thank you! He had a great tryout with ALC, and just found out he made the team. 2024 coach seems very solid. Thanks so much for the suggestions!

Any word which True team: Annapolis or Chesie will be the A team or B team? I have heard they are forming a 2026 showcase team called True Maryland that will cull the top players from True Baltimore, True Annap and True Chesie clubs with the intention to totally dominate both 2026 MD lacrosse and the east coast tournament circuit. Can’t wait to see the cream rise when it hits full stride.

True Baltimore just took over Kelly Post, so now the team will be True KP. Anyone know what’s going on there?

I'm interested to hear about what happens to True in general but it's super confusing. Like Annapolis vs. Chesapeake, A vs, B, who are the coaches? What is the word on a showcase team?

BTW - No way a True Showcase team at 26 dominates the summer in its first year.

I heard that it was not a "takeover". True is just going to get paid to run some clinics for KP kids and coaches (?). I'm sure the True coaches will be keeping an eye out for kids they can recruit away during those clinics. laugh

True will definitely be getting players from KP. True Baltimore is run well and has the resources to succeed in the Baltimore market. I could easily see a Looney's eventually merging with True.

True is like a cancer. It enters a market, wrecks a few legacy programs and then starts expanding by merging with b level programs at which time it ups the cost to play to equal that of A programs to further line the pockets of a few. Parents lose out as they dump good money down the drain out of a sense of “providing every opportunity for their son”. First cell to die from the True cancer was Diamondbacks where many promises were made. Most of the stronger players left to greener pasture after year one and others were either pissed or weaker players happy to be on a “club team”. In order to reload the roster the cancer takes over AYLC. Seeing the writing on the wall many of this best players split. No care, there are enough bodies to create a truly weak B team that pay full cash. The cancer will continue to spread each year as those with options leave for greener pasture and new “payers” are added who’s parents are willing to pay full freight whether it be for a weak “a” team, b team or c team.

doesn't wreck the clubs they absorb, they were already on the decline. True steps in and provides non parent coaching to the HS teams while also providing additional opportunities to play on state, regional and national teams. It will take some time for them to start attracting higher end talent, but it will eventually happen. Not every kid can or wants to play for Crabs, FCA, Looneys or Hawks. Fees are probably less than the four mentioned clubs and many other clubs locally.

The only person I knew there who has Division 1 exp was L.C. and he doesn't seem involved in MD anymore. That seems a big gap there.
