Non traditional areas usually have a different set of rules

Do they play the same sport with uniform rules? The tryouts should be run the same way regardless of the region. UA/Nike should hire a woman’s director of Lax or work with the IWLCA and layout a process to select the best girls from each region and have them play, not rotate a bunch of $$$ motivated biased club directors in to coach it who can’t pick the best girls bc they have to pick their girls to validate their club fees and so they can say they developed her. When a HS all American doesn’t make the call back game…. It Highlights the problem…

if long island wants to WIN the event then why not pick the BEST players. how can a legit duke commit who was an AA this year not make callback after being on the team the past 3 years???
but still the talent on UA is much better than AS

Talent is absolutely not better on UA, look at the rosters, many of the better girls went to AS. The Duke commit was hot and cold this season, didn’t play well and did not deserve to advance. You want the tryout to be fair, right?

We didn’t do AS after being stunk into 91s Warrior AA games a few years back. We decided to wait-and-see.

UA was a bit disorganized at first but I thought got it together pretty quick after the first 20 minutes. We’re not Jesters but the evaluations seemed fair because they didn’t know any of the other girls - and there was a lot of girls. I’m sure some got missed and that’s the shame of a tryout but overall the callback game was loaded with talent. Good luck to all the girls.

The Duke commit led her HS team to an undefeated season and LI championship and was an All American. Like it or not she will likely be the face of the 22 Suffolk Senior class replacing the BBP player who just graduated. The only up and down is the repetitive over exaggerated unnecessary head / shoulder fakes of the player likely to take her spot. Best of luck to those that make it.

Wait…a YJ didn’t get pushed through do to her reputation? Guess that’s what happens when CR isn’t pulling strings behind the seen. Don’t agree with her being the “face”. good player, many just as good or better many of whom will be Jrs.

Non traditional area players sometimes have to travel 3 plus hours just to try out so I’m guessing that is how they can manipulate the rules Not right at all but marylnd and LI are held to different standards

Selection process is skewed at both. Get rid of the club directors and club coach’s as evaluators. UA/Nike should have a much better evaluation process for their tryouts

The entire '22 class at BBP is not worth a mention. That's why they're not mentioned. The talent at BBP now starts with the '23s and that's what you'll hear about next season.

This is the 2025 thread and all the top 2025 talent from BBP was at UA.

Almost the same thing happened with the North Carolina 2024 team. Large number of players from the "host club" that is clearly 2nd tier.

This is normal of startup events and why most don't last. If AS is still around in 3 years, and the other regions actually win a few championships to show some legitimacy, it will be worth considering. UA is flawed but when you look at the AS roster it is still just as flawed and for the same reasons. Club affiliations, friends, and family.

Manipulate what rules? You show up- have girls throw and catch, do some drills, play some games and hopefully have “independent” evaluators rate those in attendance and pick a team for the respective region. Drive 10min or 10 hours. Makes no difference. What am I missing

Harder to get numbers. Isn’t like LI or MD where everyone in that region is playing
