Coaches vote for their friends and they vote for Carol or they get in trouble.

Vote for carol sad but true.a true pioneer of inflating the cost of travel lax.very overrated what they turned this money grab into.don’t get caught up in the hype.all the premier clubs have A,B,C and now D teams with inflated numbers on the roster.your kid will play half a game at best when at tournaments.I’ve seen it and am glad we went with a smaller club.still made out better scholarship wise than a lot of kids on so called top teams.

She is the most powerful and influential person in girl's/women's lacrosse at the local travel team level, HS coach level, college influence level and so on. No one is remotely close except maybe the CR in MD. Unfortunately, YJ is still the absolute best way to go for the better players. Having went through it, I am not a fan, but still believe it to be a player's best option. A solid player from the A team will have doors opening all over for her, whereas the same exact caliber player on any other LI club will often get overlooked. My kid made all the teams and lists and did amazing for herself. Very good player and I feel deserving, but probably had a lot of help from being a YJ and pushed by carol. I would say her and most of her teammates greatly benefited from the carol effect. I am not in denial; I clearly see that there are plenty of very good players out there that just do not get the benefit of the doubt that comes with being a part of the YJ A team. I am watching what girl's lacrosse is becoming. All the elite events, a million lists of ranking teams, players, photoshoots, social media hype, FOMO. It is completely out of control. Even Spallina tweeted same exact sentiment, since he has to now go through it with his kids. I wish you all good luck!

Can someone explain how/why LI has their own All-American list? Shouldn't it just be All Long Island or something? What exactly is the point of having LI All-Americans?

I disagree. My daughter left YJ due to daddy coaching. Yes she was on the A team, but the politics were unbearable. Went to a different club where she was valued. Turns out, she was way better than all those girls playing over her. How do I know? Her accolade list far surpasses anyone else’s on that team, and she had the pick of schools she wanted to attend. Sometimes the grass is greener! YJ is great for some, especially those who like koolaid and wearing Bee gear. Not for us!

Look at the current rising Sr. Class. The best players ARE NOT YJs! Wonder why that is?

The list is broken down by state and section so technically the above list is the NYS section XI list

You can break it down like this.let’s just say there 16 AA between Nassau and Suffolk.Out of that how many were from YJ and consider who from YJ is on the respective committee that vote on the selections.Not taking anything away from the honorees but it’s a big circus what’s been going on .time to drain the swamp of li lax leadership all across the board.

Does anyone know where we can find a list of the Suffolk County All-Americans, All-American Honorable Mention, and Academic All-Americans. Should be public record somewhere, no?

All the talk, concern and about all of the accolades is a waste of time, it's out of your control so don't waste your energy thinking about it.

All - County is based on how your team finishes the regular season, i.e. the team with the best record gets the most selections. It is not a vote, your coaches decides who makes it.

US Lacrosse All - American is selected by a committee (at least in the past not sure if it has changed). Nassau gets 9 AA's, Suffolk gets 8 AA's. The selection process for this award has always been the most political. Each year a handful of girls from each county who are good enough to make it are left off simply because of the limited number of spots available.

The accolades are nice but in the end nobody cares, the only accolade that really matters the one bestowed upon your daughter by the college coaches. If you really want to know where your daughter stands, look at the schools that offered your daughter a spot. The collective opinion of the college coaches will tell you how your ranks in relation to her peers .

Sorry, it only “doesn’t matter” to those not honored. Being selected as All-County, and All-American is a great honor, and those girls will remember that for the rest of their life. Yes, some good players are overlooked. Mostly because they are known ball hogs and/or they play on a weak team. I know of a couple girls that probably would have been selected All-Americans if they didn’t have such a selfish and unsportsmanlike like attitude. I agree with you about the college coaches list being the most important. It’s not a coincidence the All-Americans are committed to the top schools. So……is there a list of honorees somewhere? I would love to see the list!

This... ^^^^^^^^

I hope that all of my children always focus on the present and do their best in the moment while working to constantly improve in all that they do. Don't want them focusing on or thinking about their past accolades (that's for parents and grandparents). IMHO, lacrosse has always been about my children getting all of the benefits that come from playing a "team sport" as well as being a hammerhead to help them get into a great university, making life long friends, networking, helping to find a career path and developing healthy lifestyle habits. Nobody will care that you were All-County or All-American in HS. The Accolades are all well and good but as with everything in life, it's all about the now and what's next.

I think it’s pretty darn cool to selected as an All County
All-American as a senior in HS is pretty darn special.
You will remember that for the rest of your life. You may not agree with selection process but when I look at the Nassau and Suffolk lists of AA; they are all pretty darn good players.

Pretty sure that everyone who received any type of accolade was notified, not sure why some keep asking for the lists to be published somewhere.

While I do agree every girl on the list is pretty darn good, come on seriously, 3 girls from the same team?
