Yes, they seem to be aggressively expanding their footprint in both teams and event organizers.
They are looking to acquire Sandstorm as well. The event in CA.

With this kind of consolidation, will club lacrosse turn into the mess that we see in baseball? This can't be good for the sport.

Won't change much if anything. All the value is in running tournaments and other events. People way overvalue how much these organizations make off the actual team fees.

If one company runs a significant number of tournaments, they set the rules and price structure. Consolidation does matter. Not at the club team level, but certainly in the one area that supports and influences every club - competition.

Club lacrosse is getting ridiculous. I am watching players take horrible shots, taking on 3 guys, and not passing in order to get a highlight reel. Daddy is in the car telling them to take shots before the game. Clubs are dumping kids and picking up others mid season. There is less development. have never seen it so bad.

No way....2029. smile Perhaps its the growth of lacrosse and club teams taking on marginal players who don't understand ball movement at the "older" level. That is what I am getting at....You have 5th through 7th graders and the best athlete on the field can still take it to the goal on any given possession. You start playing 8th through 11th grade....those days are over. Defenders and zone play will eat you up.

Here is the solution for you, hold your kid back than send him to private school and re-class him so he can be a 16 year old freshman.

Yep, all so he can get a shot at a 5% scholarship to Delaware or Monmouth

Funny...I have a 15 yr old sophomore at private school. He is holding his own athletically and we hope that he takes advantage of the INCREDIBLE education we are providing. Sports may be his ticket to an elite school...maybe not. Either way - totally worth it. #theyhateyoubecausetheyarenotyou
