Avon has the best offensive player in the country. Think they score a ton which helps tremendously!

Cant play in the founders league if you are 20 years old. Another reason kids re class is academics. Founders League much
tougher academically than public schools.

I would agree with the FOunders being much tougher academically. My son has to work much harder in Founders to get similar grades as our public school.

Within the Founders League, there are HUGE differences in the academics between schools.

Can anyone with a son at the Founders League/ New England West 1 boarding schools report if there has been any communication whatsoever about spring sports? I have a son who would normally be competing against them. Wondering if there will be any kind of games, even within the state (CT for a lot of them or MA for others).

To date all we have heard is that the are "really" trying bc they know last Spring was lost as well and thus it would be two lost seasons. No details have been given other than the schools saying there will be some form of lacrosse against some schools, No idea what that means and that doesn't sound very reassuring. The one thing it definitely sounds like is it will be a season put together with scotch tape and probably against a few schools with no playoffs and many testing protocols in place.

Most of these schools are not committing to anything right now. I've heard of a few prep schools that are planning to play games where they can find competition. Connecticut and Massachusetts public schools are cleared to play, and are playing winter sports, including games. Major problem is that Ivy League and NESCAC haven't announced that they will have seasons again this year. Outside of the Northeast, lacrosse seasons are underway, some officially some unofficially (captain's practices, etc.). As we've all witnessed over the summer and fall, lacrosse was played safely outdoors and I didn't hear of one tournament or event that resulted in a lot of Covid spread. The NE boarding schools seem to be focused on taking "zero" risk, evidenced by the outright cancellation of Founders League sports and many schools not even bringing students back on campus despite frequent testing and an extremely low risk population - deaths, hospitalizations and "severe" cases are lower than the common flu/pneumonia in many instances. There is zero or close to zero scientific evidence or data that supports eliminating high school sports, especially sports played outdoors. We need one school to step up and provide leadership by stating they are committed to having a season and releasing a plan to have interscholastic sports. It can be done safely as we are seeing all over the country, it's inexcusable what these schools are doing to the kids and the parents that pay high tuitions for the boarding school experience.

Putting aside whether u agree or disagree with this sentiment I can tell you that my sons boarding school has said absolutely no spring break trip and most likely no Wednesday games. Usually games are Wednesday/Saturday. they did say they hope to play "multiple" games on Fri-Sat since no Wednesday games but no schedule in place. The biggest issue they said they are running into, is that some schools want to play and others don't and the scheduling of games due to individual school COVID repopulation and school calendar. Some are not having a spring break (or a shorter one and others are. Some schools already went back to campus and others are just starting this week. Some schools are ENDING the first week in May and others the first week in June. What all of this means is that as someone noted above this season is going to be put together with scotch tape and who knows how it will come across. The boys and girls at these schools are screwed and are being given the runaround with now potentially TWO SEASONS MISSED and even if this SPring is played it will be a hodge podge of a season.

The season doesn't matter. We pay $70,000 for education. Lacrosse is a dead end street.

Good for you. I pay $$ so my child can potentially have the best of many different worlds including academics and athletics. I am willing to wager 99.9% of the people have their kids lacrosse for a multitude of reasons with NONE of them being going professional one day (that is what I am interpreting as a "dead end street"). I don't know what you consider a dead end street but for me if additional doors are opened bc my child is an exceptional athlete then it is not a dead end street. If colleges that my child may not have received a look at or admission to is bc of a sport then it is not a dead end street. By your idiotic response unless your child is going professional then everything is a dead end street. Swimming, wrestling, field hockey, volleyball etc . . .In addition, I can tell you that my son's closest friends are from his team sports (not just lacrosse) and for ALL of them, the season does matter. Waking up with something to look forward to other than an Algebra test is not a dead end street. Your response clearly shows you were not an athlete as a child bc for 99.9% of athletes the season DOES matter regardless if the child plays in college or never plays again after their last high school game as that is WHY they play a sport.

It was a rhetorical comment and I was speaking in the abstract but if I am a snot then so be it. I still stand by what I said and if A (not mine) child is an exceptional (OR VERY GOOD) athlete and if additional doors are opened then again, it is not a dead end street. Maybe my kid s u c k s or maybe he doesn't the point is still the same that "Lacrosse is NOT a dead end street."

To the parent above...sports DO mater. Especially if students are driven and have athletic goals and aspirations. BTW this is a lacrosse forum and if you don't care for athletic banter or don't think lacrosse is important to many of the lacrosse players you are on the wrong forum.
