YJ beat BBP 1 in semi finals last week BBP also had the YJ kids from BBP So it was a suprise for some and then beat St Anthony’s group yesterday BBP 2 didn’t make the varsity playoffs but you already know that

This should come as no surprise, every YJ top team should be on level with the very top HS teams at right about this age, then be able to blow the HS teams out the last couple/few years. Think about it, it is a team of the very top players, a HS team would be lucky to have a small handful of top caliber girls on it. To also put another perspective on it, my daughters 9th grade YJ team played an an incoming recruit class team of a lower level D1 at an indoor tournament. Beat them horribly, like 15-2 or in that range.

Winter leagues for HS programs are typically missing the majority of their best players due to many reasons such as playing other sports, or just taking a rest. Amazing how anyone thinks it matters for anything other than getting some practice in. Not by any means a realistic representation of any teams talent. Please stop. Nobody cares about winter league scores

Wouldn't it have been more surprising if BBP won with their winter town team vs. the very best 2025s on the island/country coached by a top 10 D1 coach?

Get a grip....

Isn’t it a Junior open ? Why would sophomores play in it?

They opened it up for sophomores this year as well. Invitations went out to some of the top 2025 players.

Did they really only go out to "top players?" Genuinely curious. My daughter got one, but trying to figure out if a) it's worth it b) this wasn't just a mass email saying "you're a top prospect!" but every 2025 got the same email...

I know of three girls I would consider top players at the age group that got invitations (between three different clubs). I know some very strong players who did not get invites as far as they know. I am curious how many girls total they plan to take. Coaches for 2024 age group look good.

At least for the 2025's, it said 144.

They are taking 144 girls from 2025 class. Wonder how they picked these girls?

I’ve now gone to 3 College Bound Laxers events and they are run so well, with a lot of colleges in a small setting. Unsure of their set up but you need to read the details bc those nuances matter. My daughter just committed to attending their winter showcase and they are on the island.

Only 144 invites went out for the 2025's. LI Lax Journal had some input as did club directors. There may have been other inputs. Some girls filled out applications, others were just selected. Not sure of the "secret sauce".

For whatever it is worth, these numbered invite combines or whatever are a bit misleading. For example, all those years Under Armour was running the Under Armour 150, the truth of the matter was that none of the girls (considered the top girls) who made the Under Armour underclass teams went to the 150. It was always the next rung of players that went to 150. But there is so much stuff out there nowadays, it really does seem like shameless money grabs everywhere you look. And the lists and social media hype from all these events, leagues, clubs, list generating websites, trainers, videographers, photographers, etc…. All feasting. It is so out of control the last few years, it is painful to watch what this is becoming. Feel like my youngest was just old enough to avoid all this craziness, glad we are out. Good luck to all of you who still need to navigate through this as all this stuff continues to spiral out of control.
