Develops players, good communication and coaching.

If you’re son can make the BBL or Tri-State top teams, that’s your best bet. If you’re son is a stud who matured early and is just looking to get recruited (and you don’t mind paying for it), Leading Edge is a good option but after freshman year.


Just curious, what makes bbl 2025 or 2026 “develop” players better than that of LE or Tri-State? I have heard nothing but good things about coaches at both programs, I am just curious.

It basically comes down to their youth programs. BBL and Tri-State will develop kids. LE will tell you straight up that they don’t care about their youth teams and that they are a “destination” club for high school level kids. They aren’t there to develop, just showcase. If that’s what you’re looking for then have at it. Hasn’t been working of late.

I believe this may be changing. Their 26 team did well this past year and I’m hearing they attracted some of BBLs top players. Someone else mentioned Jersey Express players going to the 25s. Their founder was even back coaching 27s this summer.

It won’t change. It’s been horrible. We left.

What was your experience like? And what grade if you don’t mind saying

So AH wasn't telling the truth?

don't know who AH is but Mad Dog seems to rule to Shore. their national team is legit and seem to offer great year round training.

Did they have any numbers at their tryouts?

Good question. That area is so saturated with clubs. I suspect, they are going to have an uphill battle.


not sure on numbers. they are practicing out of Cedar Grove, I'm not so sure as to who the competing club teams would be. Brotherhood, Evolution? like i've said before, i think the prospect of potentially playing for a legit national team could draw kids in. Kids from Verona, CG, Caldwell, West Essex, Wayne, etc might be drawn to Mad Dog North.

Mad Dog has never ruled the Shore. They lose their top high school players to other clubs every year. They had one good NJ group the 2021 and all but one of those parents have kept their younger son at Mad Dog. Not a great sign.

AH is the BBL owner.

Mad Dog had a decent run at the shore a few years ago, but the implosion of the 2023 teams was really tough on the program. The 2025 team is very good, but the only thing that keeps kids around at this point is the National team. Obviously, the National teams are very good, but I have heard from many parents that when it comes to recruiting, a lot more emphasis is placed on the West coast kids. The NJ program had some really good coaches at one point, but it seems like they have either left the club or headed West.

Was there a good turn out at mad dog north (new team)?

Also, is anyone hearing about more partnerships like O2/riot, United/BBL. I saw Towermen is partnering with Tri-State for box.

91 NJ North is trying to get off the ground right next door in Montclair too.

I hope you are not referring to 2023's, if so, you are sorely mistaken, especially with BBL

The Big 3 of NJ lacrosse but no point to even number this list. Top team changes with pretty much every age group and every season. Sure other clubs may have the occasional stellar team, but not with the consistency of these three. I am NOT saying other clubs don't have top players.

At this point, it may be best to pick something local, what part of NJ?
