At Chaminade, except for games against Darien / St. Anthony's, etc., for the JV-B (freshman) team it usually works like this -

Starters (top two middie lines) - first half
Second group - third quarter
Third/fourth groups - split the fourth quarter

There will be movement within these groups based on injuries, performance, etc. If your boy ends up in one of the first two groups by the end of the season, he will probably be invited to Express A next summer as the roster grows to 30.

Definitely check out the history of the Express B, 91B Etc. Over the years there are very few division one college commits. In fact most of them do not commit anywhere or commits to colleges people never even heard of. Much better off not playing for the big organization B team and playing elsewhere. Also playing for Express B does not necessarily get your kid playing time on the varsity team but definitely gets a kid a better chance of making the team.

That's just not true. Top half of 91 and Express B teams do have some commitments to top tier D1 programs and many of the players commit to D3 programs.



not B teams... single "A" teams

2021 91 Ambush, which is the second team, has no d1 commits and express second team has only one. It is easy to look up. These low numbers are true for the past several years. Don’t believe this and keep your kid on the second team and find out the hard way when it is too late or you can do the research now and find out that only the AA teams get multiple D1 commits. Don’t believe anyone here. Do the research on your own.


Teams do not determine D1 commits. Players do. The only thing a AA team will do, in normal circumstances, is get your player seen more. Odds are not in your favor but don't write off a good A (B) team player.

Fantastic grades and prospect camps is the solution. JS's or CoachC's AA teams don't have library hours or bus kids to prospect camps.

It’s so ridiculous. Never understood why they don’t compare apples to apples. Lax is such a joke. No rules. Wild, Wild West

It’s a sad reality that most, if not all, of the ranked players are extremely old compared to the rest of the 23 class.

Covid has turned me, after missing a whole year and the back log of players my son will now reclass. I will do this with regret and mixed feelings.

Sorry to hear that, but I completely understand. I’m sure you’re not the only one doing this because of the backlog. Hope it all works out.

The biggest bs you tell everyone your going to do a PG year and you can play against 24’s. Or have your parents pay 80k for a boarding school.

Recruiting in 9th / 10th grade. Its the parents, mostly the fathers, who are crazy about seeing their son become some type of star. The fathers are reaching out to schools and coaches, pushing to get their sons on top travel teams and trying to make sure their sons are on select teams or make all star games, etc. Then the really crazy fathers.....they are still coaching their son's travel teams! Making sure their kid is playing attack, scoring goals, on man up, etc. You'll notice you rarely see the travel team's son playing defense or goalie. That basically sums up 9th / 10th grade "recruiting". Relax...let your kid play lacrosse and other sports, focus on the grades. It will all work out...

How do I get him on the Duke lacrosse team? If he has good grades does that get him on the team?
