Good luck waiting for an honest club. They will not give up 50 plus kids all paying $100 to tryout. What really burns me is that the current players have to pay to tryout for their own team. I am the dummy though because I keep writing the check.

Same. I was just talking to my husband about this last night. I've been paying thousands for years now. You can't waive the tryout fee for a team my son is going to play for again?

How is the coaching now? We tried out there a few years ago but weren't impressed and watching them at tournaments they didn't seem very well coached. If that's improved that'd be good to know.

They and 91 seem to mostly play only the mylaxtourneys events and sorta set up the match ups. You want to play vs teams you haven’t played several times.

My son has played for Legacy for the past 6 years. He lost more than he won, but the coaching he had was second to none. At any time, Coach Zummo could have brought in ringers to win tournaments, but he played the kids on the team and got every last drop of effort out of them. Zummo is all class and good to his word. Just my opinion. I wound up at Legacy in a random way and I'm thankful I did.

Tommy is a great coach, I only wish he got involved with what was going on with that team earlier.

He got involved at the right time. A couple of years before the kids entered the most crucial phase, the beginning of the recruitment envelope. Reading posts above about how Express brought in kids from their Jersey outfit to try and win that tournament, that's something TZ would never do. Who cares if you win a tournament if your kid gets pushed aside for a better player from out of state at tournament time? Is that why you practice year round, to get shafted at game time?


S2S Hawks added kids to their roster all season long. Up until their second to last tournament. Still didn't win anything

All the big club 2nd teams go by the coaches commitment to the team. S2S, Igloo, Express, 91, Rebels, and Rush. Basically round out this bunch. Best bet speak to people familiar with those teams. Won’t share who I think is the best, just look at the results over the summer and speak to people on the team.

91 Hornets B team coach = great guy, excellent coach
Would def disagree with that comment

There was a coaching change, a high school varsity coach took over.

A varsity coach or college coach should be the club coach. A qualified guy. People are dropping thousands of dollars, they don’t want PAL coaches who coached their sons. We pay about 180 for something like that.

Top 2025 teams are looking for 24 holdbacks at this point. They want to ramp up to see who gets the most college commitments and hopefully force some of their 2025/ to also take the prep route.

Take the prep rout .... 98% of the people on here can not afford the perp rout and the other factor is that the school may not want you and your kid may not be good enough to play in the New England Prep league. Before
you come on here and assume kids can play in that league do your research those schools lax programs would destroy any public school

B/C program. For whatever reason their 2025 parents are a particularly "challenging" group. I don't know much about their coaches, but I'd steer clear just because of the parents.
