Which Long Island kids made it?

From what I’ve heard from my daughter a few YJ kids, a legacy kid, and two 91 kids.

The fact that two of those 91 kids made it is impressive in my opinion. There hasn’t been a lot of representation from the club at events like this. I think the shift in this clubs growth this year is due to the coach takeover by Tilts. She was mentioned a few times, but my daughter finally worked with her this week and was blown away by her and how much she had never been taught before meeting with her. It was eye opening. It is true what they say about how a coach can really make a team.

I’m not sure if it was in this thread or another BOTC thread talking about this showcase but someone said that if you play for a top club you’ll make it. Elevate and 91 aren’t typically top clubs, but have some top players. I don’t personally think highly of Kotowski and the program, but it is further proof that talent isn’t just coming from one program on the Island.

Also just want to point out that those saying the selection process isn’t legit should find a coach that is advocating for them the way Tilts and a few Long Island coaches who seem to be changing the 2024 class. The amount of other parents considering leaving their current teams solely to play for this one coach is insane. I think that those girls making it was just another reason there’s been all this buzz.

Maybe just an opinion. Regardless, big congratulations are in order for all girls who made it even if parents are in here making it seem like it isn’t a victory. All of the kids representing Long Island should be celebrated.


Agreed good coaching can do wonders for kids getting chances to be seen

Can someone give me more info about Tilts and her team? We are among the families looking to switch for our daughter to play for her. Any information about her as a person, contact information, reviews, or social media info? Would love to know more about her before leaving our Jesters team.

She played for Quinnipiac and broke a bunch of school records and was ranked top 5 for a year & she played for and coaches for 91. According to her social media she didn’t start playing lacrosse until high school .

Sam trains my daughter whose a 24 on another team. After this year, we are highly considering trying out for 91 only if she’s our coach. She is a teacher in Brooklyn and a really great role model for my daughter....she started coaching as a freshman in college and followed her teams through high school. Very loyal coach and person and my daughter LOVES her. If we don’t train with her every week my daughter is completely bummed. Great person.

Agree and would add that back when kids were committing in the 9th grade many of the top players didn't have to go to this type of event (some still chose to attend). It is not like being selected to the Under Armour Senior Game and it is different from earning a spot on a UA Underclass Team but I think if you are trying to get recruited / committed it is probably worth doing if you can get selected. If your daughter is not a Top 50 type of player you have to find ways to get coaches to see her and actually look at her. Don't let the naysayers and the haters influence you, if you listen to them you will not do anything. If your daughter does get selected be sure have her let the entire coach staff at the schools she is interested in know that your will be competing at the event. Coaches want players who want to attend their school and play for their program.
Good luck to all.

Agree that Nike is another stellar event. It’s a great opportunity for these top players regardless. I think those who are bad mouthing the event are likely parents of kids who weren’t chosen.
NIKE 120 is a much better event. Coaches recommend players and it was legit. They do a better job. You really only need to do one. We passed on the UA150 last year...


Is Nike 120 happening this year?

If you play for a big team in a hotbed area, you should be doing all of the big HS (age) tournaments. Coaches can see you there. Or your wellness/ athletics Insta account!

Actually got that wrong. The 2023 group is just lacking a dominate team from any club. LI has always had a team or two that could go down and handle all the MD teams. This age group does have some talented kids, just to spread out over so many programs, there is not a strong team among them. Players who could be a solid middle of the road player on the top team are leaving programs to go be the top players on lesser teams.

Except those “solid middle of the road” players who left, are better or just as good as girls that are on what I am assuming you are referring to the YJA team. You do know they have been beaten by other LI 2023 teams. The top girls on Jesters, Legacy, and TG would also be the top girls on YJ. Now, I do agree with you that if all those girls were on the same team, it would be pretty special. That is unless a daddy coach incapable of unbiased coaching gets involved.

Truer words have never been spoken on this board. Coach Tilts is excellent. 91, on the girl's side, not so much. Hopefully, Coach Tilts will eventually end up at a club that is actually invested in their girl's program. No girls "director" or coach ever stays at 91 for long.

Both YJ and TG have handled MD teams plenty of times. Good rivalry

She’s been there for nine years and played for them I don’t think she’s going anywhere. The girl was offered two other club jobs and a college job and still chose 91. The girls side is doing much better and I’d imagine her loyalty would only stretch so far if they weren’t working with her in a way she appreciated.

I’m sure eventually she’d want to leave to grow in her career, no?

I have spoken to a lot of other parents who plan to send their kids to 91 tryouts. Any parents on here who have kids on this team that can tell me our likelihood of making the team?
