Some choose to tryout for UA and AS for opportunities for exposure to often a large population of coaches and should know politics will be involved. Open your eyes, jockeying for a better position I.e politics is just human nature and happens everywhere in life not just lax.

Find the right club for your daughter that fits her aspirations, challenges her, and affords her the opportunity to be seen. Successful college coaches don't care about your daughters team wins and loses they care about do they fill a need for their program, will she fit with the current team dynamics, can she meet academic standards. Do you really think they care about the score on the flip board? Successful programs are evaluating whether your daughter is a team player, continues to play at 100% when the game is clearly already decided and is she an impact player on the field.

Amen!

Grizzlies lost to NJ and as I was told by NJ parents at the UA semi final game vs NJ (the best 22's and 23's did UA; mostly 22's) Long Island beat NJ's best 7-3 in a well played semi finals despite the pouring rain. Grizzlies got beat basically by 12 Steps Blue girls. Baltimore was upset by one goal to Philly. Yes Long Island beat them by 7 goals, but it was first game of tourney at 8am; we all knew it was going to be a tougher Philly team in the finals. The bench got tightened because it has too in the playoffs. Espo and Dave did a great job running 3 middie lines and 6 attackman during pool play, but with 12 min running quarters during the playoffs there are certain girls that need to be on the field more.. Philly I am sure did the same.
Everyone can say what they want but, nothing compares to UA underclass event when it comes to girls HS lacrosse; and the college coaches all agree

Agreed! He did a great job, and my daughter played on AS. Hope he coaches gain next year! Will definitely be trying out!

The UA girls teams were on fire! So happy for the highlight team to being the ship home. This was the place to be !

Nope! Not the place. Where was the real comp. at? LI did not even have to play the top competition. Barely eeeked a win against Philly! Grizzlies would have chewed that LI team up and spit them out!!

someone sounds sour that they lost at AS / didnt even make a playoff game. go do your breathing exercises. you will be the first in line next year to register for UA and you know

“Limit number of appearances”? That’s not how it works. Who? Would limit it? There are obviously some girls who train and work harder than others. Do you limit the amount of medals you can win in an Olympics? No!!! You train hard and you can win as many medals as races you can win. That’s the way competition works. Now, opportunity/exposure is another topic. But, definitely limit is not the answer. There will always be a few athletes who stand out and are at everything. Prob. Means they worked/work hard to be doing the top events.

Nonsense. How can you have a real discussion if you try to limit what can be discussed? A "participation trophy" is exactly what you are calling for. You are entitled to your opinion but so are others. Diversity has no place in competition.

Traditionally, Under Armour Underclass has been the most competitive HS tournament. There have always been complaints about the selection process but most were sour grapes. It seems that last year some of the complaints were legit. Now that club directors have created their own event UA needs to do a better job with the evaluation and selection process. When my oldest first tried out there was no CR /YJ involvement and I think 17 or 18 of the players were Yellow Jackets.

I hope they figure it out because it is a great event!

For those who have gone through the recruiting process, my daughter who is a ‘23 has received a few personal text messages from coaches the past couple days asking her to fill out a questionnaire. Some of these same coaches have also contact our club director to express interest. Since there are no more recruiting events this summer would you say this is a strong indication that she will receive offers? Has this happen to anyone else and not receive communication on September 1?

I know exactly what you mean but it will never happen.
There are players (mainly just the parents) who will fly all over the country chasing accolades. It gets annoying seeing the same sports family at all of the top competitions, trolling for highlights. They even have their own professional video production crews.
Consider it flattering that there are not enough lax bros in Colorado and they all want to come here to play. East Coast lettuce can never be trumped by Co or Tx lettuce!

None of these events should be based on talent, everybody should get a chance.... Good grief.

No a participation trophy is not what is being called for. Take the recent UA and AS tryouts. Slots were already awarded by AS prior to UA. Why should a person then tryout for UA if the tournament is at the same time. Not saying let everyone get in. Once selected accept or don't tryout.

For sure it’s a positive sign. The 9/1 contacts will not be offers ( for 99% of the girls) but a text saying hey we saw you, we like your game, let’s talk more.. maybe schedule a campus visit or a zoom so they can tell her more about the school the coaches etc, and they will want to know you and her also.
Don’t expect to be wrapped up by the end of the week…

Of course there will be some early movement.. I doubt The Grizzly 2023 will be around very long. And some LI girls will go quick too But for 99% of you it’s gonna be a little process. It will be stressful etc but your D gets to do it once… slow it down and soak it in.

I didn’t realize that D1’s were allowed to personally text a 2023 student. I think colleges contacting clubs expressing interest is a positive sign but the personal text might be a violation of NCAA rules. My 2023 DD only communicates one on one at this point with d2 and d3. Hopeful for contact on Sept 1 from D1’s, but we are waiting to have our recruiting director put the effort forward with the best matches and expect to have a better idea come September.

It’s a general txt w/ a questionnaire-there is no communication so it is not a violation. My daughter (a 22) had many through out last summer from 2 specific schools that sent her a txt w/ questions to answer. Those schools contacted her at midnight on Sept 1st.
