$2000 is a bit steep, but I think it could be worth it . Hotels were expensive in the area. Maybe organizers can work with hotels for blocks and get some better pricing. Get teams together like at NYSR. Also, make the event more eventful, and not just like any other tournament. Offer some extras. Guest speakers regarding college recruitment, etc. Maybe have a big BBQ for all the teams. Maybe some interactive booths and vendors. Think convention… but, obviously much smaller scale. “An exoerience”

Add airfare for anyone in the West or Mid West Region for tryouts AND national event...cost prohibitive for most folks.
Yeah for my financial situations I’d rather spend $1500 on 3 or 4 college camps. To each his own.


it was a great event! TONS of college coaches!! It was def one of the best events of the summer for my 2023.

Many parent coaches with kids who aren’t strong who still get to play. Middle tier team with no real recruiting events and inconsistent talent.

Yes, great event and great exposure to college coaches. Would be nice if they can figure away to make it more affordable.

Tourney schedule for next year weak? No recruiting events? Where do you get your info? Sounds like someone from another club whose trying to disparage a solid team, or a disgruntled parent, but here’s their schedule for next fall/summer.

Chesapeake Invitational
Summer Genesis
IWLCA NE cup
The Grind
Mid Atlantic Summer Club championship
Northern Rise

Similar to TE tournaments. Check out their 15 D1 committs from 22 Blue. Guess those tournaments worked out. (Upenn, Penn st,, cornell etc.)

‘Always’??
What exactly do you know about Empire that others don’t?? Guessing you have been following them since it’s startup, for one reason or another. Which is actually sad in itself.
Yes, they are somewhat newer in the girls circuit, but cut some slack. Never once blown out against the big clubs. Win or lose, always close games.

How is the 91 merge working out? With the combo of bandits are they having 3 2024 teams? Or did they reduce to 2 teams bc bandits had 2 this age.

At the jesters 2024 tryouts they didn't warm up the goalies yesterday. They just had them pass around and then put them in stations to get shot at. Is that normal there.

You don't need to go to every. single. major tournament. Chesapeake, Genesis, MA. All 3 of the top tournaments. The other 3 are also solid tournaments. All you need to do is check social media and as long as coaches are there, you are fine.

It gets boring playing the same teams over and over, especially with some of the travel that is involved. I know 2 MD teams at a younger age that played each 3 times this summer on top of an NGLL matchup. That is what happens if you only attend the "big name" events. It's boring and annoying.

I honestly didn't realize they played in some of these tournaments. How did they do at Summer Genesis and Mid-Atlantic this summer?
