Yes, this weekend at Cantiague is the Autumn 8 hosted by Igloo. A boutique type event, which is great with D2 and D1 schools and few D1s. So great exposure from the coaches, not running around with their chairs from field to field. And they mostly 2nd teams and some A teams. But the college list is very good.

The NLF schedulers seems like they put no thought into this today. Forget being a player and dealing with these game gaps, what if you’re a college coach, coaches don’t want this schedule construct. Plus, the HS event going on. I can’t imagine a coach shuffling around Farmingdale and all these games and any kid getting quality looks. If you’re going to run these big events, work on improving the scheduling logistics. Just my opinion.

The most professionally run event I been to on Long Island. No I am not an Igloo parent. This is a great model of how to create exposure opportunities for players.

It was done well although would have been nice to see Igloo play Express.

I agree. Very well run and great atmosphere. Overall competition was close but not sure why it was all B teams and Igloo A. It was a great opportunity for the 2nd tier of players to stay on Li and play mostly like competition.

Event was great. Hats off to Igloo for putting it together on a cold Fall day. However, it was funny to see the Igloo A team participating and playing in a "B" tourney. Same story as last year. A penguin never changes it's stripes. Would anyone really expect them to face the top B team? No chance...

Igloo ignore the negativity, if the college coaches like the format. Please keep scheduling these. Us 2nd team parents appreciate the fact an event was created for next level players and it’s not all about Maverick and UA.

Sure Igloo Parent, schedule your son's "A" team against lesser competition to falsely inflate those stats. Igloo Daddy: There are no shortcuts. That theory will ultimately end up just exposing the kids/people involved. The real answer is that the Igloo program is eternally un-invited from NLF so they had to quiet the parents somehow and serve up some Mr. Softeee as a distraction. "Winning cures all" Shame , shame shame.

But the event was really well run regardless of who played who and the ulterier motives. Format good, Refs. good, scheduling good. Nicely done

The NLF does some decent things in my opinion, but they clearly only focus on elite teams. In fact, I think when they announced the federation that was one of their guiding principles to match AA v AA so those teams weren’t in lopsided events. There is a gap in the market a next level federation. Meaning single A and B. An A and B federation would likely be likely be as large as the NLF. My guess it’s the next thing to happen. Most of these clubs run copy cap models and all seemingly have national programs.

Of course they wouldn't play us, they had to beat up on weaker B teams. Gotta keep those lax dreamers happy. Anyone know why they keep using a 2024 goalie?

The showcase aspect may have been exaggerated but overall it was a fun event and well run. Would have liked to see the best clubs matched up but everyone seemed to go home happy. Thanks to Igloo for the event.

It would be nice if people worried about their kids grades half as much as the youth level of a sport that 99% of the population doesn't know exists.

You know you are on a lacrosse site, rite? I’m sure there are many academic sites on the internet. Why don’t you go on those sites and talk academics.

This is exactly why US Lacrosse and now PAL have started age verification. Not sure if tournaments will adopt the current systems put in place. I would think at this point insurers would demand it to protect themselves from liability. Age verification would surely quiet down some of the "not fair" accusations.

What’s the mess Coach C? They practiced every week played in 3 fall tournaments (10 games) They played competitive lacrosse this fall except 1 game vs Express . TB was missing 8 of their better players and starting goalie because they are multi sport athletes. A mess is an organization that keeps roster of 40 and play same 15 players . You need to understand the word mess .

The mess at True Blue is with younger ages. Lost all their top 2030, 31 & 32 talent to new Jesters teams.

Not Coach C here. The 2025 team is a solid B team if that is what you are looking for. They entered in B tournaments and won a few games. Would like to see them play Express Davis though.

True Blue played Davis and won by 15 not using starters. I guess you failed to read what the other person said. But this is an open forum so reading is optional. In the fall most of the higher level lacrosse athletes play a second sport. I'd say make it a point to play them in the spring if you have a lot to say when its lacrosse season. Play them let's see what happens!

TB would beat Express B team. By a lot. They already have a few times. Ask Davis last time they played TB A team. TB coach displayed sportsmanship by telling his players to stop scoring. You are clueless obviously.Go away and troll somewhere else . what is your agenda …to bash an organization Why ?

True Blue A hasn’t played Express B recently. In fact, now you mention sportsmanship…True Blue B played at Tri Star last summer and in the playoffs played brought in their A team and then the A players went off to lax fest and left 13 kids behind to play Express and they wiped them in the 1st half and gave up scoring in the 2nd half.

At least True Blue is playing in A, not like the Turtles and their B- and B+ teams. How did the Turtles even form a 2nd team? Which folded club did they annex? One is Tenacious and one is just The Turtles.

In my Humble Opinion, TB "A" would get smacked by Exp B. Fact. Hopefully they match up soon . Altho, It might be closer than expected as Exp B looks to play to the level of their competition. That never sets up well for a Blow out.
