What criteria do the Crabs use for their invitational tournaments? I notice they exclude certain teams that are of a high caliber and invite other clubs that are marginal (I understand the quality of clubs year to year)...they seems to invite teams and bracket them so Crabs are guaranteed a semi final or final slot...Crabs are a good team but the owner seems more focused on marketing his brand than making the boys better or getting the best talent in his tourneys

LOL. I am not with the Crabs, but that is a ridiculous statement. Take a look at the caliber of teams that were at Crabfeast:

Breakers
Crabs
CT Chargers
Dukes
Greene Turtle South
Laxachusetts
Express
Madlax
Sweet Lax

Those are some of the best teams in that class. Everyone knows that Breakers/Aloha stacks their tournaments to help their teams get to the playoffs. I didn't see the Crabs putting themselves in the weakest bracket possible.

Stop crying just because your son's team didn't get invited to a Crabs tournament.

Whoa..why attack the breakers. Maybe we should skip the Crab tournaments and go elsewhere.

Too many readers misunderstand the actual meaning of non-profit 501(c)(3) entities. One thing it does not mean is that there are no salaries being paid. It does imply a federal tax filing status.

501(c)(3) Religious, Educational, Charitable, Scientific, Literary, Testing for Public Safety, to Foster National or International Amateur Sports Competition, or Prevention of Cruelty to Children or Animals Organizations

501(c)(3) exemptions apply to corporations, and any community chest, fund, cooperating association or foundation, organized and operated exclusively for religious, charitable, scientific, testing for public safety, literary, or educational purposes, to foster national or international amateur sports competition, to promote the arts, or for the prevention of cruelty to children or animals.[14][15] There are also supporting organizations which are often referred to in shorthand form as "Friends of" organizations.[16][17][18][19][20]

Another provision, 26 U.S.C. 170, provides a deduction, for federal income tax purposes, for some donors who make charitable contributions to most types of 501(c)(3) organizations, among others. Regulations specify which such deductions must be verifiable to be allowed (e.g., receipts for donations over $250). Due to the tax deductions associated with donations, loss of 501(c)(3) status can be highly challenging to a charity's continued operation, as many foundations and corporate matching programs do not grant funds to a charity without such status, and individual donors often do not donate to such a charity due to the unavailability of the deduction.

I think this post is both not accurate and is unfair. Yes, most club teams are 501-C-3 non-profits. And that is to manage the club. Inflows are player fees and outflows are fields rentals, insurance, coaches compensation, swag and other hard expenses to administer the club. Crabs is one of those among many.

It is true that in addition to the non-profit to run a club status, that the same club owners have a second and separate entity that is a for profit enterprise to run showcase events and/or tournaments. Many club owners do this...Adrenaline, Crabs, Madlax, Trilogy, etc. Yes, having a for profit side is maybe something people have an issue with since the club owners do profit well by it, but in fairness this is all transparent to you and all others. I see a point to your arguments, but to impute that Crabs guy or others are doing something wrong or possibly illegal is way off. They are working a system and the system is flush with cash to be had. The American way.

I agree with this post fully. When a team is for profit you know what you are getting up front. These daddy run smaller clubs hang on to kids because they know the kids dad or mom for 3 or 4 years. They also beg the better players to stay with there club and give them a hard time when they want to go play with a Crabs,VLC or Madlax. Even though the player is a AA level player. The gym you go to takes 85$ a month and no one is mad at them. All the big clubs put there fees on ther websites for you to see.

I am interested in how many of the Crabs are age appropriate or hold-backs...the Long Island board keeps pointing to them as the biggest benefactors of holding players back and getting a competitive advantage. I don't agree but can someone put numbers up to quiet the Long Island lax folks

It depends. Through U15 they are age appropriate. Like most other clubs and tournaments, they use 9/1 as the cutoff. A 7th grader with a birthday in Aug 2000 or earlier would play U15 for them. Once this same kid gets to High School, he would play with the 2019 team regardless of DOB.

8 or 9 of the 2017 team are holdbacks and 2 of those players should be juniors. Fair right ? Pretty sad when freshmen can drive to their own games.

The use of "age appropriate" is interesting.
8th grade year is when most reclassings occur. The U15 age group allows kids old enough to be in 2017 class, current ninth graders, yet they are "age appropriate" for U15, provided they don't play JV.

How many kids on Crabs U15 are old enough to be in 2017 grad yr, born before 9/1/99? How many reclassed or did a pre-first year?

LI Dad here--

Yes, there has been alot of complaining about holdbacks. For the 2018 graduating class, how old are the boys on the team...same question for 2017.

If the players are age appropriate for their graduating year, then there is nothing left to say except sorry! If the 2018 graduating class boys are 1999 birthdays, and the 2017 are 1998 birthdays they are holdbacks (other than last quarter birthdays)...

truth is none of us from LI even care, until MD people start talking about how much better your teams are--similar posts regarding the recent assent of the Dukes clubs...of course kids that are one year older play better because they are bigger stronger, faster...once everyone hits 17, the advantage become less important.

So, if LI has it wrong, please explain.

Crabs have gone to a graduation year model for their 2021 and 2020 teams

50% of their 2021 team is with players that have already been held back a year and would be playing U13, not U11
