Which tournament are you referring to? A past tournament?
last week's world series qualifier
WSYL qualifier, best kids are usually on the field most of the time, nothing new for Tri State, and most other clubs for that matter. Not sure if this still happens, but they used to take younger kids that were going to age-out the following year, those kids did not see a lot of action. The summer season is different than the WSYL, but this is not town lacrosse, kids have to earn playing time. Tri State typically plays very competitive tournaments, if kids are not putting in the time and getting better, they will not see equal playing time, but again, that is pretty much every club at that level.
