True vs Chickens at 4

Very easy to tell when the kids get out of school.

Hawks has ducked True many times. Coach Rage pooped his pants with the one goal game in the fall. Hawks days are done. 0-3 this weekend

Has True 26 taken and won against any elite teams? That's what they should worry about. Not whether they can take on Hawks.

who is on this True team? where were they playing before? The only one I know is True Illinois, which was like their National level team, i guess. They came to the east coast last year and were beaten easily. Help me understand why would this True team would be more viable.

If you guys are playing them in Delaware, I would guess you will see players from their NJ & PA teams as well if they don't have a game.

True is hosing the Atlantic Spring Classic in Delaware so we will assume this will be the True MidAtlantic team that the Hawks saw in the fall.

True MidAtlanticNortheastMidwest team that Hawks saw in the fall. I fixed that for your. Local players did a great job cheering them on from the sidelines.

True is the least “true” lacrosse club I am aware of. Plant a flag all over the country. Add in as many kids from other marginal clubs as they can with all sizzle and no steak marketing. Try to find one or two diamonds in the rough out of the sea of average athletes they con with their hype. Owners get rich. None of the local teams are ever good enough to compete in their community on their own. 4 times per year, like Noha’s Ark, they take 2 kids from every team (the diamonds in the rough who blossom) and enroll them in a big name tournament. With this national “all-star” team in tow they compete against clubs that are truly local, whether they be LI Express, Tigers, BBL or Hawks. If they ever prevail and beat one of these teams they claim they are a top club. What have they really accomplished? Beat a local team with a National team.q For this reason I continue to dislike True. If they can ever bring one of their local club that plays together on a regular basis to a tournament and win a game against decent competition they will have earned my respect. Until then....not!!

So which Ture team is playing this Sat in De? 😂 😂

I am guessing from your response that you live on the East Coast, where every kid plays and every ex-lax professional has a clinic every weekend for players to attend. Being in a non-hotbed state, like myself, we don’t have that. We also don’t have such a huge population of really good players yet. In order to compete at good tourneys it’s imperative to be on a National team, if we don’t we can’t compete at the highest level. As a result, good players on teams like True, Mad Dog National, WCS, 3D National, Team 91 National, Legends, Unrl and Nationals play to gain that much needed valuable experience in good competitive games (like all the East coast enjoys any given weekend). It’s also imperative for good players in non-hotbeds to get exposure and that happens on National teams. These National teams provide our kids opportunities that they would never have otherwise and it comes from need. And kids like my son come away with it with friends all over the US.
But don’t be fooled, most of your East Coast teams are pulling kids from all over the country, Crabs, Team 91 just to name a few pull kids from CA, CO and TX on the regular at all ages. Just like your private schools and boarding schools show extreme interest in our players when they perform well at one of the many showcases. Do you detest those teams that pull in kids from other states? Why do you think they do that?
What you should really care about is your own child and choosing circumstances that give him the best results, kind of like what I do. Who cares what teams other kids play on, be thankful that there are several very competitive teams coming out every weekend to play your team and paying big bucks to be there. If we didn’t come out you would play the same few teams over and over again. Be thankful your son has the god given abilities to play and relish in these times, they pass by so quickly and if you’ve spent that time being angry you are missing out on so much happiness.

If you don’t live in the Non-hotbed areas you have no clue what parents are up against and the measures we have to go through to give our kids the same competitive advantage your own East coast kids have. While you enjoy your Sunday dinner at home after a long tourney weekend, we slum through BWI sweaty and hungry trying to get home by Monday morning to work and spend the plane ride doing homework. But we do it because we support our children and really it is fun! Be thankful that your location awards you benefits that other kids don’t have instead of mocking other children. What’s so ironic about this whole thing is that all your children are pretty cool and friendly, they are friends with players like mine on National teams, they don’t begrudge their peers and they support each other. It’s surprising how they get it, but adults don’t.

If you havent figured it out this is part of lacrosse now. True, 3D, 91, Express, Madlax and Sweetlax. You are a fool because Hogan opened up Richmond Hawks.

Guess I must’ve missed the part where any club on earth is seeking out your “respect” or pay any mind whether they “earned your respect” or not. How funny is it when parents get butt hurt over their child losing a youth lacrosse game, because this is what it’s all about, losing and not winning, not respect at all.

I wrote the original True post. Very well written and thoughtful reply by you. I believe I now understand the value of national teams. Thank you for taking the time to share your perspective. Well done!
