It's Fall Ball everybody relax! Teams added
new players to their rosters. The kids never ever played with each other before. That's why you saw 2-3 players scoring all the goals. Those kids were knew to their team or teams. Let's see how it pans out in the summer. Who knows? They may surprise you. Good luck to all!

Anyone know of good showcases to attend that are coming up? I know I may be late, but I am trying to find a good, local showcase for my daughter to get the experience and exposure as well. Thank you.

UA and 180? What does that really mean? No disrespect to the hard-working players, but 180 players yes? it's a softer group all around than in the last. What's with the the 2024 girls teams and players? Is it only YJ and the 2025 teams that play lacrosse? I haven't seen nor heard one thing about the 2024 class. Is it that there are no decent teams or players that play lacrosse in that grade? Are there ANY up and coming teams or players look forward to seeing?
Good luck all.

My daughter is a 2024 and we play for a smaller club and is one of the best on her team. People keep telling us that if she wants to play in college we should move clubs. What 2024 team is strong at this age group?

Others may laugh at this, but you should give Team 91 2024 Crossfire a look. The former 2021 coach just took over that squad in the fall and I don't know that any coach puts in more effort on behalf of each and every player. She's a great role model and great motivator, and is transforming the culture of that particular team (no comment on the rest of the 91 girls program). My daughter doesn't play for them, but trains with the current coach, and she's already getting great recruiting advice. If you try to move to one of the top teams at this point, your daughter might get buried on the bench or sent to a "B" team. Not sure how that helps her. So again, I'm recommending the team because of the coach and the support your daughter will get from her, not because of where the team sits in the pecking order of Long Island lacrosse.

Will your daughter try out for Under Armour or American Select? If she tries out for both, and makes both teams, which one will you select?

Hey there! I’m Sam Tilts, the coach of the 2024 Crossfire team referenced above. This was actually shared with me by a colleague, but I’m glad he sent it! Whoever wrote the reply about me, thank you so much! I’m on the hunt for you now 😂

If you’re interested in coming to a practice or training, feel free to email me at coachtilts.91lacrosse@gmail.com

Feel free to check us out on insta @91girlslax2024 or my personal training account @coachtilts

On another note, go where a coach works for you and where your kid gets the sense of being part of something more than just lacrosse. Find a place your daughter can grow while still loving the sport. Their mental growth, athletic growth, emotional growth, and academic growth are all important. Send your daughter wherever feels like a place she can be happy, pushed to her limits, but still enjoying the sport. At the end of the day, there is no point to playing if she isn’t happy. As tempting as it is, try not to let too much word of mouth (even about me) influence you as much as your daughters experiences. Every coach and team has a different vibe.

Best of luck!

Second this. My daughter tried out for this team in August but didn’t make it. We were looking to leave our team after playing hers and seeing that she gave feedback to each kid when they left the field and my husband and I were impressed. Sadly my daughter didn’t make the team but even after the fact was send a list of drills and a paragraph of feedback from the coach. She even went as far as to reach out to her in social media to see how her fall went. I’m trying to get her in to do private lessons because at this age all I want is her to have a good role model. If she had made the team I would have not hesitated to move her from her current team (which has four teams for the 24 class) We plan to try out again next year and hope for different results.


Any other teams parents recommend if she doesn’t make this team again?

I second the reply about 91 2024 Crossfire. I saw the coach already posted but did not attach it to your original reply so you may need to scroll down to find it. This past summer my daughters club team played played the crossfire team and lost after the coach clearly told her players to stop scoring. The parents on the sideline said it was her first game with them which was alarming to me in the best of ways. She spent the entire game coaching with no play off. My daughter came off the field and asked me if she could try out because the coach gave every kid who came off the field feedback. Unfortunately my daughter did not make the team after going to a tryout. The coach did not simply post numbers of kids who made it but rather reached out to us, and I assume every other family, individually. Coach Sam sent us a drill list that paralleled her feedback for my daughter. When I tell you I was taken away by her professionalism and care for my daughter.... My daughter has played another fall with her club team which as the other reply mentioned has four teams for the 2024 grad year. We are just as upset to have not made the team as we were this August, but she plans to try again this summer.

I'd also look into some of those teams labeled as "elite." They often have way over two lines for positions and will make as many teams as they can collect a check for. These teams will bench weaker players, so if your kid isn't the best on one of those teams she won't really get any looks.

I obviously have never used this platform so I apologize for now posting this three times. I didn't know there was a way to quote the original post (maybe moderators can delete my other two to avoid spam sorry again!)

Thanks for sharing your info qe just emailed you. There is not often positive commentary on this forum. it says a lot that a few people have spoken up about your team and your name specifically

The top guns page is flooded with comments about the program falling apart because of the Smiths - mostly andrew and his recent DUI- are there top guns parents here looking to switch teams? Where do you plan to go? Do any teams even need kids at this point? Will coaches be willing to cut kids to make room for any of the 24 black players? Sorry for so many questions but Im feeling fairly concerned for my daughters future
