Should Daddy ball exist at this level with the amount of money parents are paying?

Daddy ball exists everywhere in lacrosse.
You'll be hard pressed to get away from it.
Every club, many highschools, and even at Syracuse and Duke.

How many remotely qualified non-parent coaches are out there waiting for their opportunity to coach grade or middle school kids?

Is there a formula listed on how they would choose if you're in the playoffs or not? Couldn't find on their site. Thanks!

Many clubs pay their coaches a stipend. However, my observation with 5 kids having gone through the club lacrosse experience is that most dad coaches do a much better job with the kids because they have skin in the game. The coaches that don't have a kid on the team tend to come and go and treat it like a minimum wage job. That is, they show up, do the bare minimum and call it a day. These guys and gals typically don't last more than a season or calendar year at the most. Don't get me wrong, there are dad coaches who are to be avoided, but you can typically suss them out by asking around. I encountered only one of them between five kids and it was with one of my daughters. If you are experience daddy ball issues, you are either playing for the wrong dad or your perception of the personnel may be skewed.

Where did you "hear" that DC Express Orange wasn't playing in the league? I mean, moot now, but interesting.

I noticed on the GHCLC Sports Engine pages, the Standings for each division are not sorted with the teams in actual order of the standings. Additionally, there is no way to sort the list online and an important metric "GD" (Goals Difference) is not even included.

These are the metrics tracked.
W - Win
L - Loss
T - Tie
GB - Games Behind
WPCT - Winning Percentage
GF - Goals For
GA - Goals Against

I'm not sure what GB and WPCT matters in the standings. In the end it is how many games were won, loss, and by how many goals. Hopefully, GHCLC will notice the problem and make it so the Standings actually reflect the standings.

Goal differential isn’t a tie breaker that HOCO uses for standing or playoff determination. It goes record, head to head, winning percentage of teams beat, winning percentage of all teams played, goal against, and then coin flip. So goal differential doesn’t matter for the standings. Presumably this is to not incentive teams to run up the score.

Never have your kid play on a team where the Coach's kid plays the same position as your kid!

Does GHCLC use alphabetical order to determine standings? 2026 Hawks in 2nd place in 2026 Elite division?

Team W L T GB WPCT GF GA
Crabs 4 0 0 0.0 1.000 45 25
Hawks 4 0 0 0.0 1.000 57 20

Here are the tie-breakers from the GHCLC bylaws. Because Crabs have beaten teams with a better record, they should be listed first.

Tie Breaking - End of season tie breaker procedures:
1. Record/Winning percentage
2. Head to Head
3. Total winning percentage of teams you have beaten
4. Total winning percentage of all your opponents
5. Total goals scored against
6. Coin Toss/Card Draw
