"Don't hurt my kid's feelings! They are a precious gift!"

So many parents have created a generation of soft kids who expect their mom or dad to swoop in and talk to the coach or find their kid another team...if the going gets tough.

Perseverance. Toughness. Discipline. Loyalty. They are all unfortunately the exception, not the rule, in today's club sports world.

100% truth! I'm sure not many will like hearing this but this is reality.

Agree. This is why we have all the club jumpers and parent jockeying for position each year at tryout time. The kids dont show any loyalty to the clubs because their parents answer is to just find a new Club with “better opportunities.”

Why should kids show loyalty to a club when the club has no loyalty to the kids? You think the moment a better player comes around a club won’t cut your kid?

Of course clubs will cut kids. Why shouldn't they, unless they are True? No sense in dealing with kids who don't want to work.

How many kids think that they are "club lacrosse material" when they are really rec-level?

How many kids play club lacrosse that never hit a wall? Never run in the offseason? Miss lacrosse practices for indoor soccer games? Think that every kid deserves equal playing time?

Those kids aren't club players. They are rec players who THINK they are club players.

Its the same thinking that "Everyone should have a college degree." College isn't for everyone.

Neither is club lacrosse. But we have lots of parents patting their kids on the head, maneuvering so their daughter doesn't have to realize they aren't cut out for club.


This is so on point ! The same parents gonna be ticked when others get calls from big time schools and then will blame the coach for not getting their kid to the top. Everyone sees the talent gap except the kids parent.

Of course there are bad coaches out there. Many of the people running the for-profit clubs are the dim-bulb players who are living in their past. What are they gonna be when they graduate from college? Run a lacrosse club!


Public service announcement:

If you don't hit the wall...you might be a rec player.
If you don't run to stay in shape...you might be a rec player.
If you miss practices...you might be a rec player.
If you don't love to compete in drills...you might be a rec player.
If you take off plays or goof around in drills...you might be a rec player.
If a coach has to stop practice to explain things AGAIN because you were talking to a friend...you (and your friend) might be rec players.
If you complain about PT in the stands...you might be a rec parent.
If you think parents should talk to the coach instead of the player doing it for themselves...you might be a rec parent.

Agree, this comes from the top. SW coaches are just too notIntelligent to be able to coach without berating players, as are the McLauglins. The old man is senile and the daughter is just worried about getting to the head of the line at the buffet.

Among top tier teams, Pride probably did the best picking up 5 or 6 top players. M and D just added one but a very quality player.

Among next tier teams, TLC added some good talent too. Won’t compete at the top but would be in the middle of the A bracket if they choose too.

BLC lost a lot. A couple LBC to MDU swaps but prob won’t impact much

I know SW picked up a couple girls from B teams (HoCo, MCE). Can't see it making a difference. Not connected to the other programs.

Did anyone’s daughter attend the AU futures Summit? Was wondering if it was fun and worth doing. We missed it this year but may tryout next year if it was a good experience. Thanks.

We did it, so I can say positives was it was great playing with other MD club girls, after competing against them over the years. Fields and facility were top notch. Interaction with pro players was very neat.

Wish there was more teaching and coaching from skill perspective. A few hiccups with bad score updates in tourney app led to one team going to wrong field etc.

First year I think doing this, prob will be better next go round but every kid I spoke to really loved the camp.

FYI MD had two teams represented who ended up meeting in championship game out of five teams total.

Yes my daughter went. Echo some of the other comments. great facilities, but too many games and not enough coaching. coaches switched too much which meant they were coaching games when they didn't really know the girls.

Also 27s and 28s were put together which created some mismatches. Also a ton of down time and transition time.

Would prob go next year if it is close. (though one of the organizers said it would likely be in long island next year).

Great, thanks for the feedback. Sounds like if they do it local again it would be worthwhile, but not worth trekking farther than Maryland.
