Yes, they are calling kids that are currently rostered and have already played in week 1 of the HoCo season.

And True is providing "Roster Releases" to these recruits to make it "easier" for kids to join True...

Once you are rostered and played in a game in the HOCO league that is your team. You can't roster for another team in that season.

2nd Team that kid double rostered for will forfeit games they play him in.

True seems to think a roster "release" from the fisrt team is sufficient to circumvent this rule.

Why 2026 Annapolis Green/White parents pay for what they get is beyond curious. More expensive then any other club program in Balt, Annap and DC and it’s, at best a rec quality experience. Parents of Green team should each shop their son to 3 alternative clubs this summer at tryouts and land somewhere new. The White team parents should move their son to a local rec team and save $1,800. The fraud that washed up on the shores of the Chesapeake a few summers ago should be eliminated from the region in a fashion that they broke up many teams with their bs lax head give aways and promises of “we train more”. True simply is.... False!!!

True Annapolis - 2025 - they are a quality team. They played dirty at times though. On Saturday... Ball was at midfield going toward True's defensive end. True attackman comes from behind the opposing team's long pole (in front of the opposing team's goal, far away from the play), and slashes him, breaks his wrist, out of the game, probably out of the tournament. Play stopped for 5-10 minutes while the golf cart came on the field and took the hurt kid off the field.

Negligence on an athletic field can be determined by a court of law.

Knock True all you want. My son's 25 team got a great win over MESA this weekend. And the Baltimore 25 team gave the Cannons all they could handle.

Not every club is designed to be elite. Not every player is elite. So kids that just want to play and arent capable or really desiring to be elite/play 10 months a year, need a club too. True fills this need- think walmart. This used to be the role of rec ball. Still should be but thats another story.

Typical Hawks parent post as the panic sets in that no one wants to play for this team anymore! They are no longer a draw at the 26 level due to poor coaching and parents toxic culture.

Why does true enter so many B teams into tournaments?

The tourney in Annapolis this weekend had a million true teams- every one competing in the B brackets.

There were at least 5-6 True North Carolina Teams alone.

All b level. Makes no sense to drive 7-8 hours to play B level competition.

So their business model really is just pay to play?

Why would you pay that much to enter rec divisions? Just to call yourself a “club?” Makes no sense. All those parents need to save a couple thousand dollars and just sign up for local rec lax programs.

My Son doesn't play for True and I'm not a fan of the their tactics ( i.e. - putting guest players from Elite level True teams on out of state teams entered in the B division).

The reason some of these out of state teams travel is because there aren't any other teams to play in states like NC. I don't see a problem with that.

So why do you care? Let me guess, your Son's team was beat by a True team or cut by a True team or didn't make one after trying out? What year/division did your Son play in this weekend?

There are plenty of boys that want to play year round that are not on the AA teams because they love it. Dissing on kids that aren't up to your standard of what it takes to play on a "club" team isn't a good look dude, it's extremely BadPerson and your motive is suspect. All this "if your kid isn't playing in the Elite division in HOCO they should just play rec" talk is garbage spewed by internet trolls and keyboard warriors.

True doesn't beat anyone. And they certainly have never cut anyone. At least not in Maryland.

It's a fair question. From a MD perspective, it seems really questionable for True to make families travel that far to play against rec-level MD teams.

But I guess they do it for the love of the game?! Because of a total lack of teams in NC? To test themselves against MD's slowest, shortest and least coordinated? Maybe to justify the $2k+ price tag?

It just seems odd.

Why do you care so much? If your kid doesn’t play for true, why do you care? How does it affect you? Like a previous poster said, not all teams are elite, not all players are elite. They need clubs. Why do you care so much about True? It’s not your kid they are training, it’s not your money they’re taking, so why do you care so much? Get a life.

Not sure why all the bashing. True is fine for public school kids and rec kids who want to dip their toe in and see what club is all about. It’s looks just like club with no pressure.

If this was the case I would agree. That's not what's happening though. These are True regional teams from NC that are being sold as all star teams. The parents pay a lot of extra $ to be told they have an all star team and then they travel all over the east coast to play in B brackets in hope of some wins. The southern parents aren't as informed as the NY/ MD parents and they get swindled. After a year or two they figure it out and leave the program for legit smaller clubs that play in smaller tourneys with no illusion of being on a national/regional team.
