Not surprised that the entire 2024 dukes nationals team from all corners of the Northeast made the under armour south team. South players pushed aside by dukes owner who’s son is also on the team. Shameful and obsidian from the beginning. Kids from Illinois made the south team? Half of boys Latin as well

Under Armour being discussed on other threads too. People complaining about the politics involved. Seems like the general consensus is - it has become very political in the last few years

Serious question for 2024 showcases:

Which if any are at last a little more merit based and not as political as there are so many teams/showcases this summer:

One Percent
Future Phenoms
NLF Nationals
Under Armour
US Lacrosse Developmental Squad
Juniors
Under the Radar
Apex Super 60/Summer Finale

For years in many parts of country UA was all about who you know. Coach was most important as many players were coached by Head coach or assistants. Been political for a long time.

Now with players travelling to other regions, the politics is even more of a factor,

UA while getting many great players has become what lacrosse in general has at club level...One big Money grab, Not an org promoting lacrosse the right way in the interest of game and players.

Sounds like the real world to me. Get use to it.

It’s a 91 tournament that’s why.

Apparently no one is on here from Suffolk. BBP goes to County Championship and plays the best team on Long Island in the best conference on the island, with arguably the youngest quality team in section 11. Entire core coming back next year. Both JV and Middle school teams go undefeated. Just like the girls side, BBP is here to stay.

Was curious to hear from parents with older boys. Is the Long Island Lacrosse showcase an important recruiting event for a rising a soph? or is it more for fun? or does it make more sense for next year when going into junior year? Realize tryouts start this wk with second round next wk - which some kids will be with their club teams at Naptown and not make the 2nd round tryouts or the Final 50 game. Busy month for kids with Juniors Open this past wknd and Maverik this wk. Thanks.

LI Lacrosse Showcase is more lacrosse shenanigans. Look at who is behind it. If you have the right connections your kid gets a huge leg up as far as making the team. If your kid plays on a top travel team, he is almost certain to make the team. What's sad....a lot of 2-3 sport kids that don't play travel and are better than many of the kids.....don't make the team because they aren't connected. College coaches do watch the games (not the tryout games but the games post tryouts) so it is a decent event. You just can't avoid the nonsense with the travel coaches and aggressive dads pushing their kids to make the team.

Great showing by two of Long Island's finest this week in two of the biggest tournaments of the summer. Express 2024 wins Crab Feast, Taz 2024 wins Naptown. Way to represent boys!
