dense question -- did the Crush 2026 team fold? Havent seen them at any tourneys this fall and no games posted on USCL. Surprising for a team who convincingly won NGLL B league last year.

Their 28s were only at prime time as well. Why do they play such a sparce fall schedule?

Can I ask a question? Why are club teams falling apart? Is it the coaches or the club owners?

I think it is a variety of reasons. Some is poor management and parents get frustrated and leave. Some is that once parents learn the landscape of the club scene they learn which ones are the most successful and leave to try out for those. Then the lesser tier clubs can't sustain without the talent.

I see lots of coaches and club directors promising the world and not being able to provide what they say they can. How do you claim about teaching and playing at a high level and enter into B tournaments

This is kind of a guess, as I'm not a Crush parent, but could it have to do with the fact that they're so new and are in some way a branch of Perry Hall Rec? Their costs are only $800-900 per their website so I imagine that doesn't allow them to pay for a ton of tournaments. Either way, they seem to have a good program with good teams!

I agree with that, but wonder if as the girls get older they will want to go to the clubs that play in more tournaments. A competitive, inexpensive, club is a big draw, but will they still be competitive if their top 2 or 3 players leave for one of the more well known organizations????

Lesser teams struggle when their top girls move to better club teams. Creates a panic sometimes that is unnecessary as not ever girl is meant to play on a top tier team and rec lacrosse is a thing of the past. No different than Legends this year which is what use to be a rec team that a father since created so his girls can make a “club” team. At least they know they are nothing more than a travel team so they’ll be fine. But even they lost girls to TLC.

Dear M&D Parents,
I wish you all a happy holiday season.  I have an important announcement to make regarding the club.  Yesterday, I sold the M&D Lacrosse club along with Robinson Sports, M&D Orlando Lacrosse Club, and NGLL to a company called 3 Step.
This is actually a very positive thing for both the clubs and the businesses overall. Even though the club will no longer be technically owned by me, it will still be run by me.   I am not going anywhere.   My new job will be the head of the Robinson Sports Branch of 3 Step.  So, all of the same responsibilities I have had in the past will remain in the future.  All of the same people in the club will still be involved.  The name M&D will remain the same, the coaches will all remain the same, Scott Robinson will still be the recruiting coordinator, Chris Caulk will still be our administrative assistant.    There is no change in anything really for the rest of the 2022 season as far as the way M&D has been run.  It will still be a small club feeling with a big corporate backing behind it.
For our future, you will see some positive changes coming about.  We will have a new website for the 2022-23 season and registration.  We will also be utilizing the apparel department at 3 Step.  The players, coaches, and parents will love this new change.  It will be a 24/7 on-line store similar to shopping Amazon.  No more waiting for 6-8 weeks for your apparel to show up.  It will be there within the week you order it.  Uniform ordering will be done in a similar fashion.
Some other changes that will be happening over time will be ones that may not be right in front of the parents and players but will help us administratively.  3 Step owns 48 businesses similar to M&D/Robinson Sports.  They have an outreach to 3.5 million athletes.  This type of size gives us tremendous leverage with facilities, sponsorships, and resources.  I cannot tell how you that type of support helps with the long-term viability of the club prospering the way it has for a couple of decades.
On top of that, there are a number of boys’ and girls’ lacrosse clubs that are currently under the 3 Step umbrella that gives us some major benefits for partnerships, events, and great future offerings.  Some the names may be familiar to you such as 3D which over 200 club teams nationwide between their boys’ and girls’ teams.  NXT out of Philadelphia which also has events, boys’ teams, and girls’ teams is also a 3 Step company.  Atlanta Storm, New England Storm, and Common Goal are 3 Step clubs.  Locally, the Annapolis Hawks and Hogan Lax on the boys’ side are also under the 3 Step umbrella.
The sale of the clubs was really something that I did not take lightly.  It was my pride and joy since 2001, and it really was a difficult decision for me.  But when I really evaluated the positives versus the negatives, the positives won out big time.  First and foremost, I believe this benefits the players and families within our organization in the short term, and also the long term.
So, with that big news, I hope everyone stays safe and healthy over the next couple of weeks and enjoy your family during the holiday season.
Sincerely,
Chris Robinson

So to summarize, all of the NXT and 3D clubs will now be playing in Robinson Sports tournaments and NGLL.

It will be interesting to see how this shakes out. With the beef between MnD and YJ/Steps I don't see great things ahead for Robinson tournies.
