M&D also went 3-1. Lost to Hero's Green by 1 but otherwise won out & didn't make playoffs.

MD united went 4-2 and lost to Hero's Green by 2 and to LI Enpire Team 91 Bandits by 1 in their championship game.

Hero's Green went 7-0, beat M&D and MDU, plus the teams that beat Coppermine and M&D.

Hero's Green has my vote as the best in the area and probably the country.

I didn't mention this when I posted the above, but the Baltimore-area 2029 class is pretty special. All of the teams above are excellent and there is a TON of talent on the rest of the area teams. Very fun to watch. We all get argumentative & emotional when talking about our teams, but we should all take a minute every once in a while to acknowledge how good all of these girls are.

I’m not so sure they would have beaten 91. The YJ game could easily have gone either way.

Tough schedule for Coppermine. Could end up winless. Lost to HG and Eagle Stix by identical 9-6 scores. Those two teams are excellent and play in the morning. Winner will cakewalk through bracket play.

That’s interesting re:coppermine. Heard they picked up a new attack just in time for tournament season (and were already carrying a large roster), either an off day or some pieces missing?

Tryouts are upon us: who makes the most changes? least changes? do any key players leave for greener pastures? Any coaching changes for the coming year? What teams make the biggest jump?

Do not disagree that skywalkers is primed to make a big jump just by virtue of being the lowest ranked of the established clubs. Can easily see quality players from established teams leave to find more playing time, different coaching philosophy, change of position, or a better social fit.

Yeah I understand that - the question is who will be most improved, not who is better. I don’t think SW will make the playoffs next year but they will be much improved mainly by adding 5 2029s that have been playing up on the 2028 blue team

It will be interesting to see how much turnover there is with the upper level teams… M & D and Hero’s. Coppermine has to be looking to make some key adds along with Maryland United. Skywalkers definitely has room to improve, don’t think they will be in the top-tier in the next year or two but by end of middle school expect them to be competing with the top teams nationally

Coppermine is already adding pieces. They've added a middie and attack during the tournaments so expect to see more additions. Already have a lights out goalie so thats a huge draw.

Generally at this age, the top clubs will drop and add 5-7 girls per year with the number dropping a bit once you get to 7th and 8th grade. Biggest X factor at this age and the next year is how many kids will drop lax in order to focus on another travel sports (usually soccer). Once ECNL clubs start fielding academy teams, they are much less understanding about missing any game or practice or another sport or activity.

I am always curious how this (adding players for tournaments) pans out, esp for rising 6th grade teams. Does this create resentment from players who have practiced and paid dues all year, only to have playing time minimized by new players come tourney season? I understand at older age groups the focus is on winning, but for younger girls (like 29s), seems silly but curious to hear thoughts. Why not wait 2 weeks and add them after tryout is my thought.

Yes, it creates resentment and confusion for the girls and families. No, the teams/coaches/clubs don't care.

Its a bush league move for an A team to do that. Teams that are B or C level, who need bodies do it all the time and that's fine.
Least its a way for parents to see what they think of your kid if a "guest" player is taking their minutes.

are they even allowed to "guest" play anymore? I thought it was the fastest way to get asked to leave a team

I think thats kind of the point. I think these girls who are jumping in with Copp (Copper, Coppy? whatever they call themselves) wanted off their current team to get to a higher level program. And, agree, its bush league for an upper level A to do that.

Between adding for tournaments and the “Tucker tune up” they hosted a couple of weeks ago where girls were offered spots prior to tryouts, it will be tough for any new girl to make the the team just going to regular tryouts

Thats interesting considering Coppermine 29 Black turned over like 8 players last year (note - with no improvement in record comparing 2020-21 season to 2021-22 season), so wondering how many current players will be demoted and what their future results could look like.

Every club has its own policy. Top clubs tend not to care as long as you don't miss any of their tourneys -- they like you getting more gameplay.

Lower tier clubs tend to get more sensitive, afraid that the player will leave for greener pastures. I can tell you M&D, Heros and SW all have no issues with players guest playing as long as you don't miss any tourneys or practices.

Not true. Clubs care much more about winning in middle school. Once you reach fall of 9th grade, no one care about winning. Its all about exposure.

Biggest thing is to get good competition in games. Don't want blowouts either way.

Hearing this also, that coppermine 29 tryouts are a facade, they already know who they are taking on Blackand have extended a considerable number of offers already

Pretty sure Coppermine had 2 girls leave the 29 team before last season and added a handful. No where near 8.

The 28’s have 2 teams, No way they’ll fold because a few 29’s have to go down to their age group…

I keep getting NEMS ads in my Facebook feed. According to them, it looks like they will have a 2029 team. Google NEMS lacrosse and the site seems to have some details. Good luck with coopermine, rumor is that the roster for black is already set.

NEMS 29 team this summer consisted of 2029-2032(!!)….supposedly the tryout number is very low. I would not anticipate them having a 29 team again.

The NEMS program may be on life support...especially with Coppermine North, Fallston Lacrosse Club, and the Tidewater Lacrosse (through Bel Air Rec) program starting up.
