Wow, somebody sure has a hard on for VLC. But you are right that they would have a rough time in elite, as would NextLevel, and FCA. I have no clue about 91 but according to this board they have regressed. So should elite be a 4-5 team division this year?

You think that is good for your boys? Good luck.

So VLC's fall wins don't prove anything because opponents were not full strength, but for its blowout loss, you assume that VLC had its full team? Ok whatever.

It is interesting that you track the scores so closely of a team that (I assume) your son it not on - why is that?

Your son’s team must be mediocre. VLC is not elite. Just because they are owned by Crabs doesn’t mean they belong in the elite division.

VLC needs more holdbacks. Playing with only 2 holdbacks doesn't help in an elite division where everyone has a lot more.

My son’s team is one of the top in Elite. But... thanks for your opinion.

Your son must be so proud of your maturity talking smack about 12 year old lacrosse players.

Which team do you think he is talking smack about - if it is one of the top in 2026 elite don't you mean 14 year old players?

In 2019 the former API Diamondbacks 2026 team went winless in the top bracket. That team disintegrated during the summer and now gone.

Crabs were 1-6 and FCA 2-5 in 2019. All this info is on the GHOCO website. The rumors from this board insinuate that crabs have reloaded with 2025 kids to compete in spring 2021. FCA may have imploded this Fall.

VLC and Next Level be careful wishing for elite placement. Yeah mommy and daddy will be crowing about how their kid made it to elite but getting drubbed every Sunday will lax off the parents and make the ride home to Fairfax or Bethesda unpleasant for the little guys. If VLC and Next Level have deep rosters with elite players then go for it. If they rely on a few studs and have weak benches then play in the next bracket. No kids have fun losing 15-3

Correct, then the top players on those teams will hit the tryout circuit in August and move on.

Spot on post and thank you for bringing some 'normalcy' to the conversation. I am kind of surprised Crabs 2026 is getting holdbacks now; typically you see this as they enter into their Freshman Year in HS. So my assumption is more will be coming to that 2026 team and the Crabs along with the Hawks will be the two programs competing for the #1 spot. What happened to FCA? Everyone knows this club is a feeder program for Calvert Hall; why the dramatic drop-off? My guess here is this team will reload at some point utilizing the crabs philosophy. Personally I think VLC can compete but Next Level should not be thinking about elite level lacrosse at this age group.

These observations are spot on. So does this mean that HoCo elite will be a 5 team division: Hawks, Crabs, Looneys, BLC, and MadLax?

Yes...with 91, FCA and VLC being bottom feeders. The other 4 teams above will battle for second place behind MIGHTY HAWKS

Yeah Hawks! And remember, they have "very few" holdbacks and the only reason their kids are bigger and win all the time is that they train so much harder.

4 Hold backs. I think at this point they have been identified by birthdate position and shoe size on this thread and New York. You should probably focus on your sons team and stop letting another program live in your head rent free all day.
