The game played yesterday was an outstanding battle. I’m glad I was able to watch it.


Great game. Did they bring in the kid from Texas
?

You mean Seaford.

Exactly. No rule in these tourneys where somebody lives in order to play on a team. It’s called building a roster that gives you the best chance to win. Because it is about winning, above everything else. I have no criticism of it, as long as the coaches are transparent with the families by letting them know.

If you are bringing in college kids to play....well then you have a legit gripe...But bringing in an on-age kid? C'mon man. Instead of complaining about it on this board go complain to the coaches/directors to hold more practices, recruit better players and improve and develop their kids. Lax is a team game. One kid cant do it all for your team: Just ask FlurryGloo or any other of these 1 trick pony teams...

Most of the teams that are not from Long Island have much older kids on the team. Lacrosse is based on grad year so if there's a 16 year old kid graduating in 2025 then it's within the rules. Until youth lacrosse cleans up their act like other sports, this will be the result. Birth year is the easiest way, get valid birth certificates, submit rosters, etc. It's not that difficult. Every other sport is run this way.

This age thing is getting ridiculous! If kid doesn’t holdback , it seems he won’t be playing D1 lacrosse! Sad… come on lacrosse, fix this issue. Go “on age”! It used to be one year, now you are seeing 2 and 3 year holdbacks by the time they reach Junior year of HS!

I totally agree that club and youth lacrosse should adopt age verification standards, although it won't change anything at the college level. Coaches will insist the kids do post grad hs and/or continue to reclass. The transfer portal has forever changed the way college coaches and recruiters put together rosters. It's only going to get worse. Sadly, hs freshman and sophs are wasting their time doing recruiting events and showcases.

Totally agree with last couple of statements. It's really putting kids from Long Island at a disadvantage. We've all played against teams from other regions that have high school freshman that look like men already. If a LI kid has a desire to play college ball, he's going to be at a disadvantage because the college coach will obviously prefer the "man" who is less skilled over the "boy" who is a more talented player. And it is 100% true that other sports do a better job policing this issue. Hockey and Soccer have very stringent rules and actually penalize parties that obstruct or break these rules. Overall Lacrosse is lacking this structure and if it doesn't change really soon it's going to be too late for high school aged kids.

This is something that the Long Island organizations should push for as a whole. Long term they will suffer from it more than individual players. As the sport grows nationally you will see more college recruits from other states. There will be less and less LI parents willing to fork over thousands of dollars per year if the chance of playing in college diminishes over time. The banter between clubs and teams is fun but this is something way more important that people should be focused on. If not for the chance of playing in college, at least as a safety issue. This forum is 2025, imagine what your child would do if he was playing with a 2027 team. Is it fair that other teams have that advantage?

No credit is given to a team with 16 yr old freshmen, a FOGO on HGH and a coach with suspect behavior. They can't touch what 91 Crush developed with HOME GROWN, ON AGE players. No credit given to cheaters.

Not impressed with any team that has holdbacks or from a state where kids start school later. If a 16 year old is dominating 13 and 14 year olds, it’s not anything special. That’s what you would expect.

The HGH holdback is the craziest thing I have ever seen and a whole new twist. Forget figuring out age based where does everyone land on doping?

I do like when Ty Xanders releases his 5 stars every year he includes the birth date. We here on LI have holdbacks as well.

It's already too late for the HS kids. They're now party of the recruiting circus and nobody cares about how old they are, in fact recruiters would prefer they were older. I do agree that US Lacrosse especially LI club owners demand an on age policy. Not sure it will work since a few of the LI owners have franchised to other states. It's going to take a serious injury and lawsuit to change their minds

US Lacrosse doesn’t want to change the rules. The way it is now benefits their elite clientele! They Have the $s to hold their kids back and get them a few extra years to get better and get an advantage to get into that top name colleges! Because , even with their $s the kid may not have had a chance at those schools without lacrosse. It’s happening more and more and the “on age” kids with middle class $s are at a total disadvantage. Forget lower income kids! It cracks me up when US Lacrosse says it’s trying to make lacrosse an opportunity for all! Lol. It’s only getting more elitist by the day!!! Need new leadership in this sport. It’s out of hand.
