I was hoping to see the TommyKnockers and Laxaxchusetts

They should have played in the 2025 WSYL qualifiers


That is what the Mohicans did. Their 2026 squad played in 14u (2025) qualifier and lost by 1 goal in championship game. Advanced to 14U WSYL

The WSYL is not a joke for 1 reason and 1 reason only. It's a level playing field. Who cares what region the teams come from play the games. Hopefully the clubs adhere to the age requirements and true 2026 kids will play against true 2026 kids. The NLF and all of these other tournaments do not have age requirements, The WSYL does. I'm not going to sit here and cry about holdbacks because that is what the game is now. IMHO all teams and tournaments should go by US Lacrosse age rules but that's not going to happen because that doesn't make money. 9/1/07 - 8/31/08..........

I agree. The holdback parents will often say things like “there isn’t an age requirement in high school so get used to it.” I would say that when boys enter HS most have reached puberty. In middle school, however, you have some holdback kids who are 160 pounds playing against some on age kids who are 80 pounds. You will still have a few huge on age kids, and age based isn’t a perfect system, but keeps it as level as possible.

question for folks on the most highly competitive teams.
how are games coached? are players allotted equal playing time or do the top players play more in competitive game?
is winning a high priority or is it playing everyone and giving everyone their opportunity?
are players coached to their skill set, meaning do they have particular roles or is it coached like a post camp all star team, roll the ball out and rotate players (staying within their respective positions) thru regardless of situations?
how is game IQ taught and developed? Is true game coaching, situational coaching and substituting being used/taught? are games coached like a HS/college game?

My son is on a highly competitive team. It is coached very similar to HS/College whereas players know their roles and players are put on the field for specific situations. Playing time is definitely not equal and the coach definitely plays each game to win. I'd say all of the kids do play in games unless it's a close game but at least 1/3 of the team sees less than 5 or 6 minutes a game. In my opinion the game IQ comes from being out there and seeing the field while having the kids play corrected when a mistake is made or a better option was available.

IQ comes from coaching, playing, and watching high level lacrosse. Even better if the player can watch college games on TV with someone who can explain the nuances of the game.

Between this and the MD thread there is close to 500 pages of parents yammering about who's better in 12-14 year old lacrosse. I would say winning is important for many smile

Has anyone seen the Blatant tournament 26 teams ? It’s definitely a B bracket which i understand, good luck to all the kids and teams that entered. My question is how is 91 A team playing in a B bracket ? Wow , that’s all i can say . Can they actually feel good about playing that schedule and winning 🤦‍♂️ Play up ! Challenge yourself. Igloo coaches i give you credit..stepping up to 25 A ..those 91 parents are clueless spending that money for that product

Why are you the same guy on here trolling 91 all the time? You keep coming on here sounding like a little female dog! Yes, you are an Igloo dad who lost to 91 and are looking to get some credit for playing "up" in a 2025 B bracket in this tourney. The 2025B bracket is a joke also. 91 entered this tourney a long time ago and doesn't control who entered. You should be happy not to lose to 91 again.

Maybe people can just appreciate having a nice weekend tournament on Long Island. It’s great getting to play on the island. No I’m not a 91 parent. Kids just want to play. They really don’t give a c rap about brackets or running to Delaware hoping yo play Hawks or Crabs or whatever. All been there done that Couple of trips here and there with nice venues is fun. Staying in places with nothing stinks. Whatever happened to making it a nice weekend for all? Ocean City ,Cape Cod, Hershey,Placid, do it right. Jersey?wt f
