Meh sure. Coaching is not the same at AA Sidewinders as it is at Hawks. heck, the coaching is a key factor in assessing top-to-bottom brackets within AAA and AA for sure. Facilities are not the same either (try playing on county turf, where the county cancels "all activities on all fields" 3x per week, all year long). Parents keeping up with their kids' workouts is not the same from AA to AAA to Elite, I can tell you that also.

To your point, none of this matters if a kid lacks sufficient talent or a work ethic. But for most kids already at these levels, these other things are very real variables.
Coaching is better at Hawks than anywhere else. Except of course the predators.

Predators coaching is beyond anything I have seen in Club.

Would appreciate elaboration on that.

Right. The Hawks coaching is so good they had to hold back several of the 27s over a couple of years to be relevant.

What do you think draws the higher IQ/more athletic/better lacrosse players to the elite clubs? Coaching!

If an Elite club starts losing games to teams it shouldn't then you would also blame that on the coaching I assume?

Team 91 is an "elite" club with "elite" coaching.
But...

The '26 team went 2-5 in Elite.
The '27 team went 1-5 in the Elite.
The 28 went 1-6...in AAA.

'25 went undefeated last year and won 5 tournaments (I believe 48-0) - why did you forget them? Ranked #1 in the US

'23 has 18 D1 commitments.....and #1 player in the country. Forget them too?

Relax hater. Some teams have good years and not good the next, while some aren't great then rebound the next with a few additions. Why the detest for teams and not positive discussions on this board is absurd very telling....... Keep living through your son, hope he does better than you ever did.

Mark, we didn’t include the 25s because most are 24s and the ones that are true 25s now seem to be 26s. You can have your 23 team, the only one you put an ounce of effort into, and well we all know why.
