Commit to what? They better commit to their studies or they will be bussing tables and washing dishes. Lax scholarships are a joke. In 3 years you will all look back at this and realize the system gamed you!

Compound this by the fact that 90% of these kids won't have the grades/test scores to go to a lot of the top D1 programs. This isn't football or basketball where athletes can get in with poor grades. They're not bending the rules for a sport that generates zero revenue.

Historically speaking, 91 and Express always have a good amount of kids that play and get play time at the next level. Igloo had a great run the last 3 years. Their 21, 22 and 23 teams had a ton of recruits about 18 each at the D1 level. How they fair in College is still to be determined. Funny thing about Igloo, they never played 91 or Express but seem to have their kids in good spots to get recruited. I think that run is over. They still have some good players but nothing like they had the past few years.

Igloo's players that have gone on to make college rosters have made no impact at the next level, very few ever do. The few impact players have come out of 91 and Exp and played for the catholic schools, no coincidence.

Who cares? Everybody is worried about their own kid nowadays. Team wins means nothing at the school and travel level. Totally different mindset these days.

Well, I detest to state the obvious, but this team is comprised of the kids who will be playing varsity for one of the nation’s best team. Not a different mindset. The majority of the top plays from the tristate will play for SA. It’s the most relevant team in NY

If your son is top recruit (meaning he’s getting calls on 9/1), lax scholarships are not a joke. Packages of 50% (athletic and academic if gpa is even high 80’s) are common and full tuition is a real thing. Anyone who tells you different has not had a son go through the process or they were not highly recruited.

Yeah, but Ty Xanders released his 4 and 5 stars today for the 2024s and not a lot of LI kids made that list, like last year. In fact, one 5 star from LI. Point is there will be a lot disappointed 2024s from LI tomorrow. Because the culture has set them up to believe every D1 coach is calling on 9/1.

Rebels, S2S, Regulators, Legacy all can beat each other on any given day. None of them can beat 91 consistently.

This represents the B teams on LI based on the summer

1 - Express Davis
2 - ECE
3 - Hornets
4 - Turtles
5 - Icon
6 - True Blue
7 - S2S
8 - Rebels
9 - Empire
10 - United

Legacy White doesn’t really count since they have 8 B players and then have players from the A team fill in for tourneys
The Rebels beat Icon twice. lol Who made this list?

And yet, the Rebels post on Instagram post for players wanted. Honestly are there any players at this point who aren’t on a team?

Newsflash; not one kid from 2025 class of Long Island will be playing for Duke. You've all been had. Factor in the cost of your catholic powerhouse, travel lax expenses over the years and the previous poster might be pretty close.

You know who hasn’t been had? All the kids who get into great academic D3 schools like Amherst, tufts and Williams because of lacrosse who wouldn’t have had a chance without it. A lot of those kids will make back the investment ten fold that their parents made to propel their lacrosse careers.

While I'm not impressed with the 25 class either, the 24 and 26 classes are actually much weaker overall. The main difference to me is that other regions are culling out better athletes. The top teams across the country generally have bigger, stronger and FASTER players. Long Island has skilled players, just fewer athletes because pulling from a much smaller geographic area. LI probably has 20 travel programs between two counties? Great for keeping kids engaged in the sport but also diluting the talent pool at the same time.

Not worried about getting money from lax for college, my son loves the sport and wants to continue playing at the next level. That’s what it’s all about for me.

Newsflash, both my kids love lax. They made tons of friends. My wife and I did too. That’s what it’s about. Yes it’s lots of money. We also go to baseball and football games. We also go to restaurants. We go on many vacations. If we didn’t do things over the past 10 years I’d have a lot more money. If that’s your point you are correct.

Where do you get that info? Lax scholarships are or a joke and are decent to very good. From experience, I can tell you the coaches mix of athletics with academics and come up with a nice package for kids they want. That is a fact for D1 and D2. And D3 will help with academic money sometimes. Just be realistic and understand where your son should play. And do that by going ask your club coach to brutally honest.

Those two counties have 3 million people. That is plenty.

Nonetheless, lacrosse's popularity in many other areas of the country is exploding. Top athletes from these areas are now picking up lacrosse sticks. LI's place at the table naturally will decrease.

Tough one for this grade. Don’t see any 5 stars yet on any of the LI teams, a bunch potential 4 stars though. That’s the IL ranking, not NLF. Two SA and three Chaminade players definitely in the top 10. The links below give you a sense of the clubs that the ranked players seem to come from. Obviously that changes year over year. For example Legacy 2024 vs Legrush 2025 is not close. Although Legrush has some ballers, just not on the scale as Taz.

It’s a comparison of the 2024s to this year. And a view to where ranked players tend to come from.

I think they compiled the list by asking 2 club directors who their favorite players are. This list is no way represents the best players on LI, not even close.

Stop with these rankings Half the kids "selected" to these teams are average at best. I have seen kids on some of these "All world Teams" that have no business being there but their Daddy, Club Director or HS coach are involved in one way or another. Its a scam to keep these lax lifers hooked and keep the checks coming in.

In some cases daddy, club coach, club director and high school coach can all be the same person. Or at least fill two or more of those roles. The politics exist but they exist in all sports, doesn't make it any less frustrating.

Don't forget PAL coach/board member from the younger years. Seems like you can't get rid of these people.

Why don't they rank the organizations that make the most money based on these showcases, special teams, all-world clubs, etc? Again, I cant blame the businesses for doing this. Its the people/parents that fund it by buying into "the dream" that are the real culprits. And around and around it goes.... Get back on the Ferris Wheel.

What kids got into any of these schools based on lacrosse? Silly statement, the kids who play there have the grades. That's it, not a bunch of 80 students with 1050 SAT getting in. Matter of fact a 1200 with b's is getting a kid accepted.

If "the dream" is to play college lacrosse you're being a little shortsighted and setting the bar too low for your life's ambitions.

I have older kids so this conversation has been discussed a lot on the older boys pages Lacrosse does help to a certain point. You are correct no kid with a 80-85 average and 1200 is getting in. It does help with the kids who are boarder line. It also helps with the admissions process for those who have the grades.
The reality is that I e seem so many disappointed parents. They thought lax would get their kid into these schools and it did not.
How many kids do these teams take per year how many kids try for those spots. The math says more are disappointed at the results.
