PARITY! This is where the best coaching will show... Some of these "B" teams could compete, and in some cases, Beat some "A" teams

4 Leaf, 3D AA , Regulators and Rebels Chrome top teams at Tourney

S2S has some really good kids, added some kids that didn’t want to play on what they thought was a b team (igloo,legacy,91). Same w/ rebels and so on

Turtles good team. Their focus is to get better with practice. No interest in recruiting kids

Igloo / Legacy B have good teams. Issue was they had to put some new kids that tried out on the A or they would have went to rebels or s2s. Legacy had kids go back to Rush 2024. Hope is those parents will see over the practices where there kid belongs and understand he will be better off. These players “moonlight” in B because they are not getting runs with the A squad in games. This actually hurts the A team as kids are there all day on standby with 2 teams

The rest is simple. Take a good A player at a key position and play him on the B squad and team will be that much better. Icon does it with some 91 kids when they don’t have a tournament and the results show. Think Icon was winless this weekend and they have a good team just not enough

Regulators will be a top team this summer.

This is whole thing is nutty. How come it never works out that the top players from B teams never end up on a single team. Hypothetically If the top players from Igloo B, Legrush, 91, Rebels and Express formed a team, wouldn’t that be an A team?? I think so. But somehow the talent on the B level gets dispersed over several teams and on A teams it forms up. B teams used be very hard to make and were all good, now it’s year to year and lotsa of turnover. I guess saturation of the market sorta broke things maybe. But just my opinion, but worth a good discussion.

A and B is overrated... If there is a good player out there, they will find him. This is a very small community. The end game should be practice & playing time. If your getting nothing out of practices or your kid is not on the field than A / B doesn't matter. But it sure makes for funny banter on this board.

Everyone should watch the kids on all these teams and follow their lead. The kids get it ( maybe a few dont but blame that on those around them). It's the parents that turn it into the circus. Let the kids play, develop and enjoy the game. Your useless screaming, sideline interventions and after-game critiques are doing nothing for them...

While I tend to agree with your statement about the parents I believe it's also the proliferation of A and B teams and overzealous owners. The price escalation for travel lacrosse is totally out of control. It wasn't too long ago that the upper tier of players only played travel year round. Now the programs have everyone convinced that if they haven't bought into the year round training they'll be at a disadvantage. Town and rec teams used to fill the gap for players want a little more than school ball. The three sport athlete is becoming rare yet travel clubs will tell you they love well rounded athletes. How could they possible have time AND continue to perform where it ultimately matter most, IN THE CLASSROOM.

Totally ageee with that statement. Well rounded but when my son plays a fall or winter sport in high school and doesn’t go to practice for his travel team the director tells me he really should be at practice. Guess what high school grades and teams come first

Yes, some coaches do that. And will hold it against kids that don’t show up to practice.

I said it last week, they are in a tough spot. They are not a true A team but they are better than most of the B teams. They are going to get blasted for playing in A tournaments and losing. Them when they enter B Tournaments they win and get blasted for beating inferior teams. Tough situation

91 tops on the island, Express second but not very close. After that it's all the others battling for your hard earned dollars and the promise of college recruitment. There is a college for everybody to play at the next level, D1, D2, D3, MCLA. Choose your education over lacrosse than figure it out later.

Tops?. 91 didn’t really have a fall schedule as compared to other teams.

Stop it. 1-1-1 in the last real event. They are good, but just as good as any AA team.
