I see super regional tournaments replacing this mess of an event with a hotbed teams traveling to Ca, Co, Tx and Fl to compete against large fields of teams and a change of pace from NLF, NAL, Naptown etc.

While I agree w some of this, I think one of the biggest “hotbeds” Maryland/DC are was exposed for their older kids. Long Island proved their age based teams are far superior.

Where were the eight quarterfinal teams from? Go ahead, we’ll wait.

What area has the most wins? I’ll wait

You were talking about teams, tough guy, and the actual results show there are more teams in the DC/MD area who show up and can compete than from the island. Keep quiet until the 7million people in your region finally produce more than one competitive team for each grade.

Long time listener, first time caller. Close follower of youth club lacrosse. Agreed with WCS being a strong 2028 team. There is also a new regional team out of San Diego/Orange County, GWB (Great White Buffalo is what I think GWB stands for?) is the name of team. Watched them two weeks ago at a tournament in Oceanside, CA. They are very strong, top to bottom. They beat a very sound Maddog West team. Having some familiarity of most of the clubs on this list (not all), the GWB team is very skilled and I suspect easily a top five team on this list.

What division are teams playing in Spring HOCO besides the obvious? Looks like only 4 divisions listed. Any surprises.

Keep quiet until your 2008 and 2009 can actually beat the LI area kids with the same birth year. Until then enjoy playing against our 2010’s.

I remained amused at the infatuation with regional teams, all star teams and whatever being happy to compete with regular HoCo teams.

What I mean is USA Lacrosse could say to qualify for the U16 team a kid has to play X number of games in sanctioned tournaments which would all have age requirements.

It’s possible but even this would be years away and is very unlikely.

I don't think the Olympics generally sets age standards, do they? Believe the US had a 15-year-old swimmer and a 57-year-old equestrian last time around, so not sure they'd set a max age for lax.

Thanks GWB dad. Awful name actually. Madlax, Hawks and many others would drop a 15-piece on your so-cal regional team

Again, why are regional and national teams included in rankings together?
Keep all "league teams" together and all national/regional/showcase teams together.
Otherwise you are comparing apples to oranges.

Not a dad (on this team at least). Truly. And I agree about the name. W that said, please post again when you see this team play on the east coast.This team has better true lacrosse players and athletes than any team I've watched on both coasts, at this age.

Nice to meet you, GWB dad trying to appear impartial!

Better true lacrosse players.

Mmkay.

Who exactly are they competing against? Who’ve you see them play?

Benching the Water Buffaloes against Mad Dog Elite West doesn’t help your argument. That MDog team has been pasted over and over again against the elite, and even middle tier East Coast teams. But I hope it’s another competitive 2028 team, more the better!!

Love this. Some poor guy chimes in from the Left Coast and gets crushed by this board. Don’t bring a knife to a gunfight, Mr Dancing with the Wolves!!

These Water Buffalos raked out one-goal wins against Mad Dog San Diego, which isn’t event their full West Coast team— the same one that gets whacked by elite East Coast teams.

Now— WCS is legit. But when you pull from 35 states, you’d better be.

Put Nationals, WCS, All the 3D regional teams, mad dog west, the true state teams and whoever else in their own lane as far as rankings.

There is no logical reason to compare them to BLC or Crabs.
