They went 3-2 and were the only team to beat the Hawks. I would say they are a pretty good team. And I would say there is the a lot parity at the top on this age right now.

I think that most people are not thrilled to go. Even though we qualified most people I have spoken with question having to give up an entire week of work and the expenses related to an average tournament in DC. We did it in Denver for my oldest in the first ever year and it was a great experience, although outrageously expensive. This year some very non competitive local teams made it and the power programs are not attending due to age.

The age reason is legit and was a tough decision for some. Many of the non-attending teams could field great on age squads, but you don't want to break up training for grade based programs for one tourney that people don't care much about. My son is on age, but 5 on his teammates are not (4 august and one july bday...4 stared kindergarten late and one repeated K) so his squad is not attending. They could have easily brought up 5 kids from the 26s and not lost anything talent-wise but then you mess up practices for all the other summer tourneys as you need those kids to play in qualifiers and a couple other tourneys before WSYL.

Really, your 2026 kids are on par with your over-age 2025s? In that case, it sounds like your club did them a massive disservice by not bringing them up and giving them a shot. Especially, when this tournament is within driving distance.....

It would be much better for the sport if all tournaments had standardized age-verification. Then we could stop with all the back and forth about who is bringing older kids down, who is playing over-aged kids, etc.

If we bring up our 26s then they are missing practice time with their 26 team who has 4 tournaments to play one tourney with 25s. The disservice would be to bring them up for one lightly regarded tourney while potentially harming the 26 team for multiple more high level tourneys.

It’s “lightly regarded” because your team is not participating? This definitely one of top 3-4 tournaments this year.

The tournament is just like any other except it costs you 4x as much. Wake up and stop choking on the WYSL Koolaide. Hope all of the laxaholics enjoy it because this will be the last year anyway. 5-6 hr drive is "within driving distance"....Ok buddy! 2 hrs is driving distance. Enjoy your 12 hr roundtrip drive vs 4 hrs of lacrosse and a picture they wil upcharge you for. Clowns!

That could be part of it, but I think it has more to do with it only being a single age group or 2 age groups for 2021. Much more exciting to be at a larger tourney where there are top teams, but also get to cheer on other ages from your club, hang out with them before and after games etc. They try and hype it up a lot with regional qualifiers, but every decent team qualifies and it loses even more luster when you have teams dropping out and others added without even qualifying. Many tournaments can be described as a money grab, but this takes it to the extreme imo.

Regulators actually did qualify...like it or not... You may not agree with the brackets but they did technically qualify. Rebels isnt even on the North Qualifier link that shows advancing teams. You sure they are in?
