You do realize that the cost for entering a team into the WSYL is no more money than some regular tournaments?

No, it's an additional expense. Please don't tell me your club isn't making you pay for the extra round or are you just chiming in. Our club didn't figure advancement into the regular tuition so now parents are asked to go into their pockets, again. Add in hotel, meals, travel and you're looking at an very expensive tournament Wednesday to Sunday. Isn't that how you'd prefer to spend your 4th of July? After all, 14 year old lacrosse is LIFE.

1- it is not an additional cost for my sons team. It’s pathetic that your program is making you do that.
2- every travel tournament I pay for food, hotel and travel. It’s what is expected when you sign your child up for travel lacrosse.
3- I didn’t say that’s how I want to spend my 4th of July weekend but my sons team is playing so I will enjoy the weekend watching.
You sound like an angry parent who’s son is not very good at the sport.

Why would you bring up his son? You are a fool.

You must be this guys brother. Also pathetic. Acting as if someones name was mentioned here. You must've got picked on as a child.
Nope. Just don't like it when short, pathetic losers who probably never played a sport in their lives insult kids.

At this point all they are is showcasing individual talents. Am I the only one that is disappointed that players still have to pay to tryout for teams they already play for?

First year in club lacrosse? LOL. Tons of movement this year. Most Catholic school kids will end up at CoachC this year and next.

Why do you think that? The three Duke super Freshmen that were Friars, played at 91 and Legacy. Doesn’t matter what club you play for. The best players will start on the varsity.

Agreed does not matter what club you are with ... what matters is the club coach you have some of these guys are terriifc placing kids in the right schools and others just worry about the top 5 and then don't care about the rest . do your homework don't get caught up in wins and losses it is about your kid in the end .

That’s 100 percent accurate. It’s about your kid in the end. Plus when you say coaches sometimes are worried about the top 5, that doesn’t always mean the top 5 talented kids. It can be who knows who. Who is connected to the organization? Certain kids get looked after more than other kids. That’s how it is.

The coaches dont care bro. If your kid is good, people will find him. Please stop drinking the "Showcase" koolaide.... Cream rises to top. No matter who is stirring the pot.

All correct but you want a coach that you can trust and are getting the right information form the otherside i have wathced coaches push certain kids on a program and they were not the best kid . My point being if you can not trust your club coach then get out now and get on a team that has a track record with college coaches . There are many factors when it comes to recruiting and a key piece is head coach ....

At the end of the day it's up to the kid and the parents to do the work. You're the ones sending the letters, emails, highlight tapes, etc, no matter who you play for. It's a ton of work with no guarantees. There may be 40 other attack or middies just like you yet one recruiter saw something another didn't. Stop thinking because they play club at a certain program or go to a certain private school your chances are 10x better, they are not. There is only one college program that consistently takes a few LI kids. Those kids are already the top 1% in their class, not because of where they play club. Even than some are told do a PG year and well see you next year.

On the flip side, I've seen kids go to Duke, NC, Princeton and Yale just to play lacrosse now their still trying to figure out how to make money. Their classmates have gone on to very lucrative careers, yet they are lax lifers. All depends on what the end game is.

No one sends letters or emails or even highlight tapes because they go into the junk account , the College coach picks up the phone and talks with the CLUB head coach that is a fact . Keep sending the emails , letters and highlight tapes and let me know how that works ....

You are right on with your comments about the right club and the right coach. If you play for a top tier elite club with a good coach that is well connected you have a leg up on everyone else. It's just the way it is. When we had Covid last year and no lax our coach was able to have college coaches talk to our kids via zoom about college lax and what they look for in kids etc. We continuously have college kids come to practices and work with the kids all through the network. Our club had 15 D-1 commits this past year as well. The coach drove the connections and made sure the kids were fit with the right schools for looks and it was all based on relationships. Sure the video's and showcases were part of it, but ultimately the club team and coach was responsible for the success of the program and the kids moving on to play at the next level. I saw it and have been living it first hand.

Stop please, there are only 70 mens D1 programs and your club placed 15 kids on D1 teams this past year. I call BS. Name the club program and the colleges they committed to.

So $325 for each of the 25 man roster. So that is $8,125 in registration fees for each team. Nice try telling yourself that your club is picking this up and that this is the cost of another tournament. Most tournaments have registration fees of $1300 to $2250 (Depending on 1 day or 2 day tournaments). Name me a club director who is shelling out of his own pocket $8k to register a team. This is another a la cart fee. Pay $3-4k for the basic package and then add in additional trainings, playdates and tournaments (not to mention travel/hotel/food costs). Just stop with the madness. People have a right to spend their money as they wish. The $325 may be a great experience and worth it, and it is up to every person/team to decide to go, but no way clubs are picking this up. Wake up.
