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 2026 team parents would like a word with you about your "non parent coaching"

reading comprehension " provides non parent coaching to the HS teams" 2026 is 7th grade.

If you believe what they are selling you at this point then you deserve it!

Seeing it. High School teams have non parent coaches. 7th grade may still have them, I don’t know. High School teams are non parent.

They wanted to give True MD a chance to play and not have to call their big sister in IL to come cover for them like Summer Exposure. You should be thankful

All this back and forth between 2026 True and Hawks. Since you practice within 5 miles of each other why don’t you take 45 minutes at a practice in the next month and scrimmage one another? Issue will be settled once and for all. Heck if you post the dare and time of the scrimmage I will drive down from Towson to watch the fireworks.

While I'm sure the True 2026 kids try their hardest I wouldn't expect them to be even close to taking on the Hawks team.

Probably because because its a crappy B level tournament is my guess. They'd be better off doing an inter squad scrimmage, it would be more competitive.

Knowing several parents on both teams, there is no back and forth. It is a troll who is stirring the pot. It would not be worth the 5 minutes for either team involved. You don't see The Chiefs scrimmaging Appalachian State for a reason.

So... I am a slightly offended Dad of a True 26 player. I assume you are comparing True to Appalachian State and the Hawks to the Chiefs. With the progress we made last year and Fall additions I believe we could compete well against the Hawks. Certainly better then AS versus an NFL team. So on behalf of our team our guys will play the Hawks any day and place of their choosing.

I am 99% sure this is a troll stirring the pot. But if you are serious, why not leave the scheduling to the program directors and not parents challenging each other like kids on a playground? The teams will have plenty of chances to play each other in Hoco, tournaments, etc.

Just don't call your big sister in again like you did at Summer Exposure.

I haven't won anything in Elite, nor in any division, because I don't play youth lacrosse. But my son's team has won plenty.

Not connected with True or Hawks, I was just commenting on the silliness of parents challenging opposing teams to games.

Come on, dad. You don't really want that do you? You have some good players. I have no doubt that even 1 or 2 could make the Hawks team. But there is no comparison here. Apples to oranges... or Appalachians to Chiefs if you will.
Ignore the trolls, focus on your team/kid, and keep celebrating your B tournament wins.
