I don’t know about M&D being dominant. They lost a couple of good players to Skywalkers and Heros gave them a real beat down yesterday.

Since my oldest in almost done with club lax I can tell you that no one cares about M&D dominance - no college coaches - no other clubs - no parents from other clubs. The teams begin to even out by high school. Teams that M&D used to stomp - begin to either beat M&D or give them close competitive games. The only people who care about M&D supposed dominance are M&D parents. And they catch on quickly once their daughters get to HS and see girls from other "less dominant" clubs being recruited at the same rate as the girls on M&D teams. Since t his forum is about 25's I'd look at the M&D 25 track record against area clubs. They've lost to Lady Blue Crab, Skywalkers, Hero's, and haven't won the NGLL tournament yet. There's no dominance. It is a strong team in an area with other strong teams. And good for those girls.

Personally I think the current best clubs will stay the best clubs in HS. Sadly, atleast in this age group, the best girls from all clubs seem to end up trying out at MnD, Hero’s etc leaving decent mid level clubs struggling, not sure how you replace that talent.

While I understand you have an older daughter and speaking from experience, I feel like colleges do consider the club a girl comes from or atleast gives more notice to some club players over others. For instance, as soon as recruiting opened up MnD has been non stop posting the players that are being recruited, no other club even seems comparable, unless they just aren’t posting the players achievements

That was my thought as well. Hero's has won all but 1 of the NGLL championships and every head-to-head championship tourney against MnD since the summer of 2019.

M&D is the only club that posts all the players who are recruited. I have not seen anything posted about recruits by Hero's or Sky Walkers, unless the players or parents posted it

More than half of hero’s green 22s are recruited to great schools and almost entire SW Blue 22s are recruited to great Schools. Duke, UVA, JMU, Hopkins, Maryland, Princeton, USC, Michigan, etc... are all schools w Heroes and SW 22 commits. Those clubs don’t post commitments on social media. All three clubs do very very well in terms of recruitment. Key is to be a strong contributor on one of those teams.

My oldest is almost done and I will add that you need to find a situation where your child can develop and shine. Being on the roster of one of the above teams is meaningless if your daughter does not get to play. My daughter is on one of the 3 clubs mentioned and due to great coaching and a policy that all the girls played an equitable amount of time (the stars/girls playing well were in at the end in close games), she is committed to a very good school. If your daughter is on a great team that wins a lot but she plays sparingly, either she won't be seen, or the college coaches, after watching multiple games, will assume she is a weak player. You do not have to be on one of the above teams to get a good spot.You will be very surprised by the number of girls from teams you have never heard of, that never make the brackets in big tournaments, that get committed to great programs. I also feel that politics aside, Under Armour tryouts are the best bang for the buck and going to prospect days pays off as long as you are realistic about your daughter's ability. Lastly, get your high school coach involved. If your daughter is on varsity her first one/two years, her high school coach will know her and can be a tremendous asset/advocate in the recruiting process.

You need to go on recruiting websites. You will see girls are being recruited to high level schools from all over the country. Maybe not as many girls all from one team like Skywalkers 22 blue - but the recruiting is geographicallyspreading. Being on a Baltimore area club team is no longer a sure fire way to be recruited. The above poster is correct - you need to stand out on y our team.

While I understand you have an older daughter and speaking from experience, I feel like colleges do consider the club a girl comes from or atleast gives more notice to some club players over others.

Heros and SW has plenty of top level commitments as well, M&D is just the only one celebrating their players commitments. I think it’s great. I wish my daughter’s club did it.

Md United East beat Pride red (who was strong) and gave MND a shock by being competitive— they are looking a lot more athletic. From rumors they did get a girl from LBC but also got the top girl from MND red and other athletic girls from integrity and ECS ( east coast select) they will be competitive. Once the girls from all the clubs have time to mature (since most are actual 2025- they will catch up on the ones that are 2024/2025)

The players lost hurt but they were replaced with players that are equally as skilled. MnD has also been hit with the injury bug and is still able to beat teams with 3-4 players out of the line up. Hero's is one team that has had their number since the 2019 NGLL championship regardless of who was playing or missing. I think MnD is equally as talented as Hero's but for whatever reason, they give the girls trouble.

Both M&D and Hero's have extremely talented players. Both teams can be beat on any given day. It looks like LBC beat Hero's last week after they took their goalie and they lost a couple players to MDU. Covid rules and fall lacrosse is always hard to figure out.

Though impressive, I don't think the LBC game is a fair measure of Hero's as there were no draws. I think what was more impressive is their win over MnD. Again with no draws (advantage MnD) Hero's won by a wide margin.

Why does Hero's video every single game and analyze the footage? Its freaking 8th grade lacrosse, no one cares who wins and loses. Just let the girls play and be happy.
