It will never be fair to a lot of the parents. The best way to level the field is simple. Practice, practice and smart training while the other kids are on their phones. The formula for success hasn't changed in 100 years, just more helicopter parents throwing money at clubs believing the promises.

Hmmm good insight. Is IMG only in Florida right now? Do you really think that IMG could grab girls from traditional hot beds and convince their parents to pay?
Its crazy to think about because non revenue sports don’t have much athletic scholarship $$ and the ivy and Nescac don’t give money unless need based.

IMG is overrated

I just did some research and I can’t see IMG doing much with Wonens lax. They may have placed a few girls but nothing crazy. They do all sports and appear to be more focused on baseball and a few other sports. They are buying up land around the original campus so wouldn’t be suprised to eventually see some building but nothing imminent. Traditional hot beds would have no reason to look down there at this time.

IMG didn’t really benefit the 2022 women’s lacrosse recruits and not trending high for the 2023 recruits either.

Don’t you all realize that nobody cares about girls lacrosse. There are no scholarships for girls to attend PG years. If you can afford that great! A luxury for the well off. Otherwise play your card and send your daughter to the best school she can attend academically. Will pay off the rest of her life!

I must say…the chatter about PG years is comical. My son went….not for a sport… but Bc he struggled in school snd needed some guidance. He played lacrosse but did not play in college. The judgements here are unbelievable. No one has any idea what others are going through. Keep it positive….especially now.

I think people are just discussing this at this point. Do you really think it’s negative?

That’s basically what the post a few before you said. Not much athletic money for non revenue sports.

This is a lax board and they are talking about pg to play lax but thanks for offering nothing to the board.

Not negative, Just a discussion about Preps and recruiting. However, isn’t PG and re-classifying two different conversations pertaining to this. PG done after recruiting age and re-classifying or repeating grade done before recruiting age?

Anyone have thoughts on the JR open ? Is it worth it ? I like this set up. Best in Class event looks skilled too. Thinking about these over American Select if coaches will be there.

Amazed by this discussion, the amount of class envoy is astounding as is the apparent concern some folks have about what others choose to do or how others choose to spend their money.

The decision to PG is generally made based on academics, not lacrosse.

Amazed? Really? It’s not envy. Just talking about advantages that can be bought in this respect. It’s like everything else. It’s facts that this goes on, nothing wrong with discussing the advantages. I think people accept this is facts of life about money buying advantages. The real discussion should be at youth level and making it more fair starting out of the gate. Give kids equal opportunity and make youth age based.

Yep- expect YJ, 91, and any other teams with. mom/dad coaches to have their kids on those rosters solely because they are the coach. Their kids will be among the weaker at the event.[/quote]

91 coach doesn’t even show up to practices so her daughter making a team is the least of the concerns.[/quote]

Is this the same coach that was at YJ[/quote]

Yes she was a yellow jacket coach, went to bandits, and now is merged with 91[/quote]

Is there an explanation behind why she isn’t showing up?[/quote]

I'm sorry are we surprised that there are issues with 91 or parent coaches netiher are even remotely surprising.

You guys are clueless about her. She knows her stuff and the girls really like her. Enough with the bashing. 91 will surprise some people this year.
