Why? How does riding the next 4-5 years help the best player at True, or Madlax or Crabs? So that kid is on a team that wins a lot and people on forums fawn over. Are the coaches really THAT much better than the Crabs or Madlax so the "best player" on Crabs will improve at such a different rate it will make a difference? The Hawks are great because they have a great TEAM and system, and everything they do is about winning games. There are plenty of recruits from club teams that are not in the top flight--they are just good players.

Again, if all you care about is winning youth lacrosse tournaments, then for sure Hawks are key. But if you want your kid to develop as a player and try to get recruited, there are lots of good options.

Next Level gets a crack at 91 Venom. Should be interesting.

That’s just it - it’s recent. Hawks were a nice team a year ago but certainly weren’t viewed as the best in HoCo let alone the country. Who knows what shakes out next year.

Hawks tryouts on 7/31 should be interesting. Expecting to see a lot of new different helmets on the Severn School turf.

Will we see a Madlax stud trying out? Maybe a few True kids- can’t beat Em might as well join em, hearing FCA is on verge of imploding at both the ‘27 and ‘28 age years. There’s always a few sidewinders, Annapolis based clubs and Green hornets helmets.

If I’m the best player at True, or Madlax or Crabs and I can swing the commute, I’m definitely trying to latch on to this Hawks team and ride the next 4-5 years until
Recruitment age

Can't wait to see how those hawks 26 and 27 do at 28! Some players need to earn some cash to keep the feds off their back too!

It’s an interesting field. 4 good teams - Team 91 Venom, BBL, Philadelphia Freedom, and Next Level.

3 weaker teams - Team 91 MD, Cavs, and BLC

1 unknown - 7 Flames from Georgia.

It will be interesting to see if 91 can blitz through and win it. It won’t settle the debate with Hawks or Madlax, but it should provide some sense of how good Venom is.

Zero chance anyone from fca 27 goes to hawks. But don’t worry you guys will get some 27 hawks dropping down again so it will work out for you. This is the perfect year for all those parents that want kid to be Mr all American to re class.[/quote]


Not sure how you correlated FCA 27 going to 28 hawks or another 28 squads. That would be a weird jump. I read it as the FCA squads moving around to other Baltimore clubs, but whatever. FCA should pray on it.

My son plays for True, and I’m slightly appalled by the behavior of some of the parents in here. You put somebody’s name on here? You’re calling kids out directly? I understand why people detest Madlax. Or the Hawks. Whatever.... get over it. Get better. Everyone thinks they have the magic formula. This will all mean nothing in years to come. There’s players who are marginal now, that will be HS studs.

Grow up people. Anonymous isn’t always such. Remember, the internet is forever. You post, it records your IP address. From your registered phone or computer. Threaten someone on here or disparage their name- everything can be subpoenaed. It’s 2021. New age.

How about we instead pick on the New York people in their board?? Hahah

Go True

You guys love beating up on True so much that you sometimes lose sight of reality.

True was very solid this spring and the Blue Claws looked good this spring too. Pretty sure they were the #1 team in HoCo AAA and had kids from Crabs, FCA and other "elites".

There are few elite teams out there, but a lot of very good ones. Tone it down a bit with the vitriol.

Blue Claws is definitely a good team, winning AAA is a pretty solid accomplishment.

It’s my experience that the ones who detest True the most, are generally ex-True people. Elite teams generally
Don’t despise b- level or lower level clubs.

The most justified complaints I have seen about True is that they lured away people from other clubs, promised great coaches and practice. Failed to deliver. Now that original club team is worse off w/o those kids and they lost that time with a bad exp.
