I feel that 2024 group and younger are starting to fall apart. Is anyone thinking of moving teams before their 2024 daughters hit sophomore year? In my opinion true focus and effort has been severely laking as of late from the program.

you would think but its frowned upon

there was a case on the 2025 thread were four girls from the janelli team got caught training with shannon smith and it became a whole big thing. i heard they ended up denying it even thorough a bunch of people saw them their.

they almost got thrown off the team so I’d be careful

But why would it matter who the kid trains with, if they are coming back to their travel team well trained? Are travel coaches that insecure? Can entire programs be sabotaged by outside training ? Sounds like a problem with coaches ego.
Parents should be allowed to utilize any trainer for their kid they think will help their child become a better player.

Clubs are concerned with their players getting poached by trainers from competing clubs. It happens all the time.

Definitely seems like an ego trip. If you're that worried, maybe internally there needs to be some better training of the coaches.

Also his drunken (or alcohol smelling hung over) behavior at tournament sites. Sorry Ms.Smith you should of straightened you son out when he was kicked out of Tampa, but you didn’t.

Hopefully none of your family members will ever make poor decisions, struggle with addiction, or find themselves in serious trouble. However, it is said that Karma is a [ChillLaxin]... The man in question and his family are most certainly dealing with the consequences of his actions and behavior and I feel for them. Your cowardly attack on an anonymous forum will not go unpunished. I hope that it is not one of your loved ones who ultimately has to pay the price for your lack of empathy and callousness.
Kharma is a B*****, and yes that is what is going on with him, all the underhanded deeds coming back to them. There is so much you don't know. Shannon and Bill have lied and stolen, cheated people out of what was their property and intellectual property. Andrew, has been running loose and fast for years unchecked. The Smiths had taken advantage of the West Babylon Schools and their relationships with board members to line their pockets using the public's facilities where as other exact same organizations had been denied. Dirty Deeds... Kharma. Just because you sip the kool aide and look through your rose colored glasses doesn't make them good people.

This is one of many reasons I am moving clubs before high school.

It is sad that this young man made a poor decision and it will more than likely cost him a great career and perhaps more on a personal level. It is sadder that people like you come on this forum just to bash someone because you feel your daughter has been treated poorly. I assume you left TG at this point. There are so many choices now on LI for girls lacrosse and hopefully you found the right fit. Step up and show some maturity for an adult, this sad situation carries a little more weight than getting yelled at in a youth lacrosse travel organization. If your daughter gets the chance to play at the college level, she had better get ready. I can assure you the experience entails a lot more yelling and expectations. My daughter played for TG and there were some stressful times. I feel it better prepared her for the college lacrosse experience. Good luck to all


Sorry pal. Driving drunk isn’t just a “bad decision”. It’s a “horrible decision” that can get people killed and it can’t be just looked at as a “bad day”. Go ask the parents of the boys scouts who were run over and killed by a drunk driver on Long Island I’m sure they would agree that when someone gets arrested for drunk driving.....it’s more than a “bad day”. If you like Top Guns.....good for you. But don’t you dare minimize the seriousness of driving drunk. He crashed into another car and could have easily killed someone. Shame on you

The Smiths have no business running an organization for youth. It seems that it has just become a quick shot for money. Very little support for recruiting and terrible tole models for our kids.

Amazing with the amount of enmities she has no one turned her in or her [ChillLaxin] accomplish to the school district .

There are some female coaches and directors of small programs that are not very good role models also.

So who do we think coaches that is still a positive role model? Who should our girls gravitate to?

I'm curious who you all plan on sending your kids to with all of the issues with Andrew and the teams starting to fall flat. Private lessons and team recommendations more than welcome. I have two daughters a 24 and a 26, would love feedback.

Sounds like you’re daughters both stink and should give up lacrosse. You’re wasting your money. It’s clear that you have an issue with Andrew and TG most likely because your daughters ride pine. You could always go over to YJ, heard they have some spots on the C team, and will give private lessons for $100 an hour. Maybe if your daughters work real hard and you spend enough money they could becomes bottom tier B teamed. Good luck!

My daughters are just fine, but clearly if this is how parents from this organization behave it's a clear reflection of the type of community being fostered. I don't have personal issues with those running these organizations, but there is a clear trail of incidents that depict poor role models for our kids.

It’s for sure an ego trip. I can’t imagine a parent allowing the club they are paying to tell them who can train their kid. I guess those parents will just have to take what they can get from TG. No other club can poach a happy and well trained player. So seems counter productive to put restrictions on families, make them unhappy, and then make them consider other clubs.

Totally agree...let your kids train wherever they want. If top guns is doing their job our players are staying put.
