What happened to the Express? Saw them at the Terp Classic, and they looked nothing like they've looked the past 2 years. Did they simply lose a lot of players, or was that their B team?

It seems as if Goalie, F/O and lefty attack are the most heavily recruited positions.

Questions for 2016's that played in the U-15 Championship last year:

Was there any recruiting value in attending this event?

Were any college coaches at the event looking at the players?

Was it a good event for the "resume"?

Any info you can share would be great. Thanks in advance.

How did the boys look at the top 20 tryouts today? Will politics determine who is picked, or is it a real tryout?

Thought there were some very talented kids out there. Would have liked to have seen them play 3 games, but overall well run.

My prediction is that the kids that get selected were their HS coaches picks prior to the tryout and most of those will be kids that have already committed.

It should really be for uncommitted kids since that's who the colleges really want to see.

Sadly these top 20 teams will be made mostly of committed kids. I agree that they should not be aloud to participate. Heard college coaches were already showing up yesterday! The rich get richer!

Any idea who the call backs go to - ball hogs or ball movers?

Total scam. They all knew who was getting picked before the try-out, but for the $65, it was an opportunity to see where your kids stands relative to the pack.

My take, other than a very few elite, almost any kid out there can be replaced with any other kid...not really much difference among the pack.

Why they pitch as a recruiting event I will never know. Why would any college come to see a group of 40 boys (20 nassau and 20 suffolk) that have already committed?

My son got recruited due to this event last year. This year we are doing it for rankings. I suppose it is a way for the college coaches to see how their recrits stand compared to others. There will also be about half the team at least that is not recruited yet. Great opportnity for those boys to get noticed among the elite in their grade. I thought is was a great event last year despite a lot of the nonsense that goes on!

The call backs go to the pre-determined coaches picks. Came home disappointed and knew tryout was a joke when I was standing next to a HS coach who told his player "not to worry he is in and it will be official tomorrow." Doesn't anyone have objective viewpoints and integrity anymore?

Too bad this event is allowed to go on as it does. It should not be called a Showcase, but rather an All Star game. Why would commits go to a Showcase? 30 min of play time at best between 2 games, does that really show a players best....many kids could not throw and catch let alone have an IQ for the game. Disappointing to say the least, but plenty of opportunities still ot there

Yes, totally unfortunate. My kid didn't get a call back, but really performed well. It was worth the $65 just to see where he is in relation to the rest.

He now knows he can play at this level with any of the boys, even if we don't have the right connections.

What about those kids who are being recognized as All Division or All County, no call back? Makes no sense at all. Dont the Coaches discuss and give their input on those kids up for recognition?

Based entirely on the tryout - reputation and performance during the season has nothing to do with who gets called back.

The sad part is explaining to your kid the [lacrosse] involved, despite the facy that he made All County as a sophomore. They, the coaches, should step up and refund those not chosen, but that would take integrity which is obviouslynon existent here

There is no way a true assessment can be completed without what you mentioned ( reputation and performance ). The coaches were doing more standing around and talking than they were watching, and most got there long after the tryout started
