Looking for advice. Have 3 sons, my older son plays on a lesser 2026 team in one of these regions. He has been told he could make one of these elite teams if he tries out. We we would have to switch clubs though. Anyone have any experience with this siutation and how did it go? If he joins this much better coached team next year he also will get better looks in high school and they got a good record at that. And If he does move should I transfer my other two or will the existing club not care about just moving my older one? Thanks.[/quote]

You are good to be hesitant to this decision. Had the same decision to make with my oldest a while ago. We left for Sweetlax all at ocne and never looked back. My oldest is now D1 player and we moved my others at the same time and it was the right move so my other kids did not get blow back and are at teh top of there grade. My other son is also looking good for college now and the advice I would give is the teams that are strong into high school and with the best coaching and roster and with strength of schedule will only get stronger. Do not go to the marginal team that offers promises but has no results is the course we learned. Dont know the other markets but hope this helps and good luck. Also look for the coach that cares about your kid and the team. Trust your gut and avoid the money grab.[/quote]

Thanks

Even if they do well. What type of message are you sending to the kids?

The team didn't play well enough to qualify from the start. Now you are going to lobby your way into a tournament that you simply didn't qualify for?

I am sure that it is a tough pill to swallow when the team was basically made for and focused mainly on attending the WSYL.

Sounds like the lesson being taught is to cry until you get what you want.

Why am I not surprised...
I can't speak for the Towerdudes or if they were whining or whatever,but I can confirm that both internationaln teams can not accept their bids for the WSYL due to covid nonsense. So WSYL decided to add one team from the North and the East based on championship bracket seeding. It was always going to be 7 teams from both regio s. So technically yes 2 teams that didn't qualify in Delaware will move forward to the series. I will add that both teams were ranked within the top 25 going I to the regionals.

Who are they adding from the East? They had to know the international teams weren't happening.
Are you paying attention? Towermen apparently

Doesnt include playdays that arent on USCL

My son plays for Blackops and it is pretty clear from the wsyl results and the march tournaments Blackops are ranked #5 in the nation behind these teams. While we hope we can make a run to win wsyl there is no team in the country that can touch these four teams above except maybe us and maybe Madlax. Tough to say who is #1 now as In march saw express beat hawks, tigers beat express, express beat sweetlax two times in close games and hawks beat tigers. The other teams listed above got blown out by these 4 teams but we were close with these teams.

Come on man, have some positivity. Don’t sell BO short before they even show. Each of these four teams has a flaw that can and will be exploited. BO organization knows these weakness. Every one of those teams has lost before and will lose again. Two and half months is a long time in the lacrosse world and the Spring season has just started.

Curiously, how often is black Ops able to practice with hoco going in for another month plus a week as the kids main teams practicing for summer?[/quote]

Plenty. The kids on this team are playing lacrosse non-stop up until WSYL. How much training does one need?

Everyone stop stating Towermen didn’t qualify. THEY QUALIFIED! WSYL makes the rules and determines who goes. Topic is boring, move along.

The above 4 teams are clubs and from only 1 oragnization. Black Ops is a mix of 5 team. Please stop with #5 because VLC, Next Level, FCA, Looney's all get blown out and couldnt even enter by themselves.

I am not talking about lacrosse, I am talking about lacrosse together as Black Ops as opposed to their main teams. All kids on the WSYL teams are playing lots of lacrosse.

Say what you want about T-men getting in after the fact but I saw them play Black Ops which is a Super Team made up of about 4 other elite club teams who couldn’t qualify on their own due to holdbacks and played to them to a one goal game. They also lost to Mad Lax by a goal with their leading scorer sidelined due to injury. So did they earn a spot, maybe not, but they are good enough to deserve one.

Thanks Hawks Dad for your deep insight. Your comments provide clarity on the situation.
