My daughter will be trying out for Skywalkers, Coppermine, or M&D. Leaning towards Skywalkers.

Easiest one to make at 28 age !
Not too worried about which one is easiest to make...looking for the right fit for her skill set.


Everyone also needs to remember that especialy as a new player, you have a higher standard to meet. It is very unlikely you make a new team unless you will be one of the 14 or 15 top players. Chemistry matters and almost no experienced coach is going to bring in a new player who is unlikely to get significant playing time. Also, most clubs will try to promote at least one girl from the B team, pretty much so they can say there is a pathway from the B team.

In most non-covid years, top teams seldom bring in more than 5 or 6 outside players. Last two years was a bit more of an abnormality since many teams didn't cut girls after the 2020 summer when there was no NGLL and limited tourneys.

The COVID situation being the case, I wouldn’t be surprised to see more movement than is typical this year. Maybe people stayed put longer than they would have otherwise or some teams kept players who are now struggling to keep up.

Obviously some teams are harder to make than others, but every team has areas they want to improve. It might be a good idea to know if those areas match your DDs strengths/position. Unless she’s just good enough to make it regardless. I’ve also heard people recommend you reach out to see if you can join a practice before tryouts just to get a feel for each team…for those who are weighing which tryouts to focus on.

That may be true, but after watching all of the top teams they all have areas where they could improve and several of the lower A teams have girls that could fill some of those gaps. Whether it is a draw girl, speed at midfield or a solid defender, those teams looking to stay at the head of the pack should not be turning away talent for politics.

I think You are correct about knowing how the strenghts of your daughter and the strengths of the current roster. The top 5 definitely all have different strengths and their top players play different positions. So being an attacker might be harder to break in on for one team and middie another.

This... If you want into a top teams tryout without having them ever seen you, your chances of making their A team is remote. You will get put in the 5th tryout group and the lead coach will probably never even see you.

That is not entirely true. The top girls will still stand out. This isn't high school tryouts. If you think there aren't better girls out there than the bottom half of the roster you are mistaken. You don't think in NGLL the coaches already noticed the top girls on other teams and will be happy to learn that they are coming to try out? Teams want to get better and that means taking the best girls. Some of the girls who have played for the big teams since the beginning (2nd or 3rd grade) but haven't deveolped or put kn the work may find themselves out of a roster spot. That is just a part of competition. And as a parent on that team, you should WANT the coaches looking for the best off season additions, not sitting back while other teams get better.

But you don't think the coaches have already reached out to top girls on other teams? Coaches obviously want more talent, but the amount of talent truly assessed is not what you think it is.

Too many what ifs to do a full ranking for me...

I think the most complete teams will continue to add talent and grow (MandD and Heros)

The wild cards will be whether or not the "typical" progression of events of middle school to HS club lax happen or not...

Will MDUs top players leave as has happened in the past, or are the confident and Content enough to stick together?

Will Coppermine be able to sell their new product enough to keep their talent? And how many soccer places will jump ship?

Will skywalkers follow the normal path of collecting talent over the next 2 years and emerging in HS as a top contender? (I assume they will absorb Crush talent, they don't even have a HS team.)

As in poaching? I don't know that they would be reaching out unsolicited at this age. Maybe in high school.

Crush is holding tryouts for 2026s this summer, so it would appear they are planning to try and keep things going into high school.

Can we bet on this? Any Coppermine* parents giving odds?

I certainly got a chuckle when I realized Curb Shoppe has been closed for two years. Pretty lame if that is what got the last thread nuked.

Why are you heading back down the negativity road. Let’s stay on the high road so we have a means of open communication between people with questions and answers.

I believe. M&D, Hero's, Skywalkers, Maryland United, and Coppermine Central will all be there with Crush being the wild card. A little further out I would include Coppermine North as a wild card as I believe they will be the premier club for Harford County.

Agree on this^ I have noticed several posts deleted from this thread since it started. Can we please delete the negative post above? Not sure why those are allowed to be posted but other normal posts are being deleted or not even "approved" to post?
