3. Who knows if they will stay together once they enter HS. There is not a lot of examples for this single year models and what happens when they get to HS. I am sure the top private schools will be interested in these kids for HS and then the club teams they run.
4. They have three kids who are overage, which I would bet is not unique.

Now can we please move on and discuss something else.

I am pretty sure that there are several NJ teams playing at the WSYL, as well as several teams not playing who will be big players in the summer so let us move on.

Have they played lately & against & results?

Who cares. No New Jersey team has a chance at the WSYL. Next.

Is the Mad Dog 25 team still decent? They might be going.

Only 2025 NJ team to make it out of the qualifier will be BBL. Mad Dog parents will have the best tailgate.

I mean, come on. There not a bad team but they don't stand a chance.

Any truth to the rumor that Leading Edge is falling apart? Is it a financial thing or just that kids are going elsewhere? Was thinking about having my 6th grader check them out this summer but don't want to have it blow up in our face. Are going the way of Mad Dog?

Since your son is only in 6th grade, I would give it some time and see how things play out. Not much value in going to LE before high school anyway, the youth teams are not competitive. There are many other clubs that are much better at developing players.

Agreed. I don't think they are falling apart, they're just not as relevant now that early recruiting is done. And they are absolutely not a development program so only look there after freshman year.

Leading Edge is not falling apart. BBL has just taken from their pool but the 4 high school teams 2021-2024 are all pretty equal. I think if these teams played each other 10 games in a row it would be pretty close to 6 wins either way for either club. These are the only two clubs in NJ that are on the higher level so lets not start this BBL/Leading Edge conversation again. Tri State and Patriot are next . Mad Dog is terrible other than that 25 team. Once that team breaks up for high school, they fold NJ.

I would say Tri-State is equal to these clubs and in 2 years will surpass. BBL will hang in the top but LE will drop out.

This is probably true. Seton Hall fed a lot of kids to LE and now that the head coach is TriState, that club will reap the benefits. LE will be stuck backfilling with Mad Dog kids like they have for the past few years but that's a significant drop in talent compared to their history.

One of LE's first Mad Dog kids was C. Birch who was an All American in HS and now at Penn State. Followed up by their 21 kid going to Rutgers and their 22 kid going to West Point. It's called talent acquisition. And BBL is now starting to scour down the shore area as well, with a few players on their roster. They were just a little late to the game. TRI State has them too. if a player is good enough from Cape May County and wants to make the drive, why wouldn't these teams take them?
