It was a good, hard fought game today. And it was heartwarming to see many of the Coppermine girls hang back to congratulate M&D and to take pictures with friends from both teams. There’s a lot of respect and camaraderie between these two teams, despite what you may read here.

Very good game as expected. M&D was running away with it, however Coppermine came back and made it a very close game.

Yes, great game. Coppermine never ran out of energy or fight; they just ran out of clock.

Congratulations to M&D on winning a hard fought win and the Championship. Congrats to Coppermine as well, they never gave up and just came up short at the end. 2 great teams and provided for a great game.

Agreed. What is said here isn’t always the truth. Four great teams came out of a great league and M&D won. All the girls should be proud of what they accomplished this season.

Now the Summer tourney season followed by tryouts. Will be interesting to see which teams lose/gain quality players. Will some "B" level teams gain enough talent to make the jump to "A" and will some "A" teams drop down to "B".

I think this summer and next summer will both be summers of movement. I think you will find top players on B/A- level teams looking for a more complete team with players of similar skill level to help push their development. Players leaving may not be the big question, it is Which A teams will be smart enough to snag them and not let politics with current players on the bottom half of their roster.

I didn't see a ton of equal playing time in NGLL (not advocating that there should be, just making an observation). So, do you think there will be movement from people who didn't play a lot looking for a new home, or just the B team players trying to move up?

There are a number of reasons players will move. We spend a lot of money to join these clubs. What if: 1: they don't see much playing time 2: aren't developing under current coaches 3: is an "A" type player playing in the B league 4: chose current team due to geographic location and will now travel further to play on a competitive team . I'm sure there are many other reasons.

We plan to have our DD try out for several of the top teams this mainly due to Reasons 2 and 3. I'd add for # 2, it's not only just coaches per say but overall development within the club etc but they go hand in hand. 2 and 3 I think are the top reasons why you will see a lot of movement to the top teams.

I'd be curious to see about # 1. Do players on the "A" teams of the top teams who aren't playing much stay with the club and move to their B teams or do they go to other A clubs that aren't as competitive etc? CClax will be in A next year with their win and I could see a few of the current A teams dropping back down to the B division, i.e. Limelight, Stars and maybe even Skywalkers.

CClax will be in A next year with their win and I could see a few of the current A teams dropping back down to the B division, i.e. Limelight, Stars and maybe even Skywalkers.

Its rare for a team to move backwards in divisions. remember typically there are 10-12 A teams in 6th grade, 14-16 in 7th grade and 18-20 in 8th grade.


For girls on A+ teams, you will see some girls tryout for A teams where they can play more or play in a preferred position. You will see stars on A teams try out for A+ teams and B players tryout for A and A+ teams.

Also, remember some girls will want to switch team for reasons beyond lacrosse. Lots of cliques on 6th and 7th grade and this can break teams up.

Biggest X factor around this age is how many girls drop travel lax all together due to committments to other sports (typically soccer).

Remember though that between the top 4 teams, there are usually only around 15-20 spots which open up.

For reference last year at the 27 level for the top 3 programs)

M&D added 3 new girls (but cut 6 or 7 due to having an inflated roster due to having a Red team collapse at last second)
Heros added 5 girls (including 1 from White team and 1 from out of state)
BLC added 3 new girls.

will be really interested to see how M&D does this weekend. Will all the improvement in the spring, have they closed the gap on Eagle Stix?

Assuming they can beat Aces, they will probably get 2 shots at them.
