Been around for along time and I am a black parent. I will say that there is a world of difference between the two teams (91 and terps black) with regard to conduct both on the field and on the sidelines.. 91 behavior may be acceptable to those involved with their team ( and that's good because who would entrust their child to someone they don't support) but certainly not to me or my son. Suppose it's a matter of preference . Every single kid on black, both "a " or "b " players were coached with respect and integrity and opportunity. Not bashing 91 but just saying it's not for all. Good luck to those making the switch.

I heard the Terps gave a strong performance in the Lake Placid tournament. Rumor has it that several of their top kids are being recruited to other clubs though.

They beat several strong 2016 teams from upstate new [lacrosse] . They lost 7-6 in the semis to a 2016 team from Maryland that was called Academy Mortgage that had several kids from the Crabs and well know schools as well as some 2015's on their team.

TOP kids? I suppose that's in the eye of the beholder. Stop trying to instigate and scare people. Express still has best coaches, players and parents. And the IMPACT players will be staying, thank you.

Ha!! You sure about that? A bit strange the you are speaking for all these players as if you REALLY are the mom or dad for all these "IMPACT" kids.

How do you know the IMPACT players are staying? If I was a parent of those kids I would certainly be listening to the other offers. Every Club knows who these players are and they are all making their pitches. This past year was not a healthy situation with far too many kids on the team. Channy is a good game coach but he needs strong players to work with to compete at the A /AA level. So lets see how it plays out over the next months. If Channy keeps the core of the team in place, their future is bright. If not they are just another team.

Is it believable that a few turtles are already committed but the college coaches want to keep it hush for fear of more media backlash that the system is broken?

This is amusing. Where were the "best" coaches during the chaos that ensued this year? The parents? If this board is any indication of what the parents are like, IDK if I would say the "best parents". There are some VERY good players on LI & they are not all on Express anymore. Sorry & Thank you

I hardly think the Turtle kids are committed. Quite a few of them went to the Jake Reed Nike Blue Chip Rising Freshman event. None of them were among the standouts listed in Inside Lacrosse. They have a great system and the kids play well in the structure. There are some very good players for sure but none that I have seen would qualify as elite.

And the bashing continues. Why do you people claim "the best " this, "the best " that.... What's important is that it's the right choice for your son. That's it. My son was on the team and if parents got upset, that was there choice. Although I don't agree with adding on extra marginal players, it was what it was and we made the best of it. Bottom line is he became a better player BECAUSE of his coaches.
