Let's be real here with lacrosse. This is about the dads. period. No boy grows up dreaming of putting on the black and red to represent Spalding in lacrosse. Spalding is a big commuter school off the highway. There is no lacrosse tradition, The dads are trying hard to make Spalding happen and it might work but once their Johnny Laxalots graduate, the program immediately reverts to its historic level.

There seem to be some good players and coaches there at this moment. I wish them luck with the sleeping giant, turnaround narrative. If it all clicks and everyone works together nicely that sixth playoff berth could be within reach and once the playoffs start anything could happen. It will be fun to watch.

They either win it this year or finish as runner up, Heard it here first !!

Holy **** it doesn’t end with you losers. Spalding will never be good at lacrosse and recruiting some overrated kids from the hawks won’t even get you to the playoffs. You’ll always be known as the school for delinquents who couldn’t cut it at public school. The school honestly hasn’t changed much if you give their roster a look over. I do not understand anyone’s logic in sending their kid to spalding—just go to stm if you want your son to have a catholic education(they’re actually good at lacrosse!)

Still bitter on your son not getting asked to go with rest of his teammates to Spalding. Going thru life bitter and resentful is not a good recipe for happiness.

I’ve got no horse in this race and can tell you only ******* would send their son to spalding. That’s you’re only response—“oh your son isnt good enough to play for spalding.” Anyone can go to that pos school and play for the lacrosse team. No ones bitter about anything except the brain dead like you on here spouting off thinking spalding will be anything but a bottom feeder. What’s the last time they made the playoffs? They will never make the playoffs and your overrated son won’t do anything to change that. Money doesn’t win you anything in the miaa—especially at spalding.

Wait ? Who actually gets asked to go to Spalding ? Who in the heck would be bitter if asked and said no? These comments are an exact example about the dads running that team and the dads hanging off the ::::: of those dads running the team. Has nothing to do with the players or the school.

Why are we still talking about an MIAA B team? Talk about the big boys.

Spaulding wins the MIAA the next two years. BK and Ripley are paying for transfers.[/quote]

Interesting. Clock begins in 9th grade no matter the school and runs four consecutive years. Transfers lose a year of eligibility with no option to recoup it in the MIAA.

Question from dad of a younger player. Did/do you find your son is getting more exposure from his high school team (public or private) or from his club team?

Club is the short answer. Most club teams participate in 6-7 recruiting events during the fall and summer months. Traditionally, the fall and summer months are non dead periods and are well attended by various levels of college coaches.
HS lacrosse is a spring sport that overlaps with the college season. It is difficult for coaches to live recruit during the spring season.

Read the MIAA rules carefully, I have. If lacrosse had not started last season, you would be correct. But it did, so you're not.

Was any conference games played????

Maybe you should fact check yourself. With COVID everything has changed.

More importantly, who and where are these "transfers" coming from? If they are coming from non-conference schools, it would be a non-issue.

Can't reclass in either instance. Once you start competing in 9th grade you have 4 years...MIAA or non MIAA school.

I have a son who is in 8th grade who is a decent player. I am considering sending home to Spalding or Severn. Interesting in hearing various opinions as to which school should provide the most development for my son, as well as be most competitive team during the 22 to 26 seasons.

Once the 22 class leaves spalding will be irrelevant(as if they haven’t already been irrelevant). They’ve also got a lot of daddy ball and nepotism going on in their program so take that for what you will. I don’t know too much about their coaches but after seeing some of their games and the amount of talent they had(as far as kids going to college) their performance was very disappointing. Severn is a far better school and I know their 23/24 classes are very solid. Their coach is relatively new but I’d say he’s definitely a better hc than Phipps.
