The JDRF has always had a conflict with PAL that is why they incorporate the Massapequa PAL schedule into the benefit.

Then next weekend the PAL festival usually has conflicts with tournaments and alot of PAL teams are short handed at the festival.

PAL will just not end the season earlier... They know the deal, they just hate the travel world. Could easily schedule Sat-Sunday games and end it sooner. Won't do it.

Festival is a joke. Blackmailing teams into playing and often on their off days is not right. As the season winds down it gets harder and harder to fight off other sports and travel. Now they tell us our Festival games are Saturday and we bett not forfeit. Not right...

I agree there is always a lot of confusion there, not worth the effort.

This should only be a problem with 7th/8th grade kids. All other younger age groups are playing JDRF on Saturday which should not interfere with PAL Sunday games.

I donít want to come down on Jim because he has done a great job with the PAL over the years, but he needs to change with the times. Itís no secret that he doesnít like the ďnewĒ landscape of youth lacrosse on Long Island because it essentially putís his PAL on the back burner. Kids play PAL to play with school buddies but go to these club teams to play with a team where everyone is almost on the same playing level and to play through the end of July. It will be interesting next year to see if PAL forces kids/parents to make a choice between PAL and club. What would you choose?

I think most kids would choose club over PAL because a lot already do by choosing the OBLL over PAL.

It's very simple PAL should be finished before June. By June the school seasons are finished and so are suffolk PAL and the OBLL.

Jim is stepping down at the end of this year. It will be interesting to see who takes over and what direction PAL heads. NCPAL has done a fantastic job over the years and I am sure with a few tweaks they will continue to fulfill their mission of town lacrosse. Club, OBLL, etc, that's where the stars belong so let PAL survive for the rest of us.

PAL is a joke. They want everyone to be equal, but treat the coaches like children and they can not do anything without permission. Gary is a joke of a ref and favors GC so much it's pathetic. They need new leadership and younger people to run it. Maybe kids and parents would be into more
