I totally agree with your statement; this thread shouldn't be limited to Youth and it should encompass all Hudson Valley lax (Boys/Girls youth and HS) matters.

High School and Youth are not so different. I think we can handle both on this thread.....
Fair point. Lead on!

And leading on we shall. Did anyone see what happened today at lax nationals in Md. Oh how the mighty have fallen. I know people will say some kids couldn't make it, covid, they are at prep schiools, blah blah blah. REGARDLESS, Connecticut and NY in the 2022 went 0-6!! and in the 2023 went 1-5. This is what happens with NO TRYOUTS and COACHES who HANDPICK THEIR OWN PLAYERS. Embarrassing! something needs to change with the selection of these teams (and UA). Look at the majority of the rosters and they are all NLF teams to begin with or the coaches picks. This was supposedly to be an "open team" where NLF affiliation didn't matter.

The Lax Nationals are a joke. It is run/overseen by the NLF. It was done to try to replace the UA AA games so they can control it.


Each Region is run by an NLF program. You can see it clearly on their website. I think the signups for tryouts in most regions were very low and why most tryouts were canceled. Several of the teams had 16-18 player rosters. That is SO low. Also multiple regions that were supposed to have teams were not able to field them. This also costs a lot more $$ for each than UA.

From what I have seen, the UA games and talent are much more competitive and independent (though UA is not perfect).

Agree. When you take the majority of players from a couple of teams like Primetime or Eclipse that's what happens. While these are obviously excellent teams with excellent players, other areas truly took from many local teams who have a individuals who are superior and is an actual all star team and not getting beaten handily. Lets see if they can win a game today.

In fairness to Eclipse and Primetime, COVID impacted the tryouts so it was not entirely possible to make it work. I think coaches from Eclipse ran all the teams so it was just easier to take their kids. Maybe next year it will work out better (maybe not....)

A month and half without any chatter!

I got the news yesterday that the annual gobbler games (at SUNY Purchase) has been canceled, which stinks.

Fall ball is just about wrapped up.

On to box lacrosse!
I think Superstar lacrosse is the only program in the area that is not an in-house program.
Team 91 Tristate offers box training and 2Way does the same, with an in-house competition.

Is there any other box programs?

Not any others. SuperStar has best players but not the best coaching.

I disagree! I'm not a fan of RC, but he is an excellent coach when he doesn't have one of his sons on the team.

To be fair you are right on the RC statement or if your son doesn't play attack.

A few years ago. Especially with uncertainty these days due to covid many kids staying very close to home. Also cost less the 'Cuse.

Y and Lakeland players have been attending and playing at Pace for a while. The draw to Pace started with Coach V (if you need to ask who is V, go back to Baseball) in the mid 90's and since Coach Mariano took over in 2014.

Also, Pace is a respected school in the metropolitan area and Marist is DI.

Y continues to send players to the top ten schools; unfortunately, Cuse and Hop haven't been what they use to be and that is a whole other topic.

Let’s be honest here, Y has been falling off as of late. They do not send their kids to top D1 schools anymore, besides Boyer. Lacrosse around the country has become bigger and better, and the Y hasn’t kept up. I think they are living off their laurels, and not producing the top lax players from years past. Class of 2020 (3 recruits) class of 2021(4 recruits) class of 2022 (2 recruits)

John Jay I think is attributed to the fact that the head coach likes a short bench and players want to play. Also, a lot of the team historically was Primetime as youth players who eventually got cut as late middle school and HS players so they stopped playing. The Assistant coach is PT head. Look at the make up of PT youth versus the PT HS teams. PT youth has many John Jay kids versus a few on the HS travel teams. Unfortuately many of these boys look at PT as the only team worth playing as they get older since they played with them at the younger age and stop playing. This has been happening for a few years now.
