I think Riot and Warriors could beat out both Express teams… they are not complete AA teams. Talking to top program guy who echos what I have heard before: “big programs don’t care about little kids, they start to care for the WS.” He gave great advice to just enjoy it as it doesn’t mean anything till 10th grade.he said he’s seen parents and kids get destroyed at all levels… for no reason at all.
His kid won the WS on ESPN and he’s got 2 kids playing college ball. He also said to join his program for recruiting purposes to ride the wave.

So, will Stealth be intact for a WS go and beyond? The parents are loyal, but scholarships make loyalty expensive!

I think when 91 and express close the gap between themselves and stealth you will start to see some kids leave. Right now stealth is much better than those 2 teams. So it’s tough to leave for a team that isn’t that good. 91 and express are working very hard behind the scenes to improve their teams. They won’t stay down for long.

How does S2S and Igloo shake out? Both solid teams. Is there enough talent to go around 5 teams? I am leaving Express East out because they are a community team with express having tentacles to pull kids.

To answer igloo/shore question. Based on past history, the top 2-3 players on those teams in the next year or so will seek greener pastures. They will more than likely end up at Express. Better coaching, better opportunity long term (high-school) and better exposure/visibility (NLF, College). Nothing wrong with Shore or Igloo, but it’s for the second tier player.

The above statement is not true. The current 2031 Express coaching/teams cannot even compare themselves to Igloo or S2S coaching staff or team talent. We all know Express has a great reputation overall but the Express Chucks cannot compete at the moment with Rebels, Igloo Winter Soldiers or S2S. At this age, it’s about learning and getting the best coaching for your child. I know the top players from Igloo and S2S are not looking to leave. Express just wishes they would…

Why would they want to leave those teams. Both of them are winning top tourneys. They get more training and tourneys for less money then express probably. Express hasn’t done winter tourneys.

It’s pretty accurate. Igloo just can’t hang as teams get older. People leave for better coaching and competition. Igloo plays a B schedule when they get to high school. Other teams play top teams and tourneys. The parents on the these teams will have their eyes opened as they progress through the world of LI youth Lax

I mean. I know from my own experience with playing for a top club team then college as well as other family members playing for club teams only thing that actually matters is getting really good at lacrosse. What team or what tournaments you play in has nothing to do with it. If you’re kids good enough they will get noticed.

Great points, larger programs act as they are the only show in town. I have to wonder if the old style is being usurped by these younger programs that are playing top level lax because they put time to develop kids and now built a team over several seasons. I sort of doubt that all allegiance will go out the window when the Titans decide next yr to “reboot.” They maybe SOL. How much athletic talent is there? Yes they were in a positive feedback loop, but these younger programs have been grooming their kids/families for years.

CoachC Express did beat stealth, but got clobbered everywhere else. Basing everything on the Aces falling apart is a bit naive as there of course were other factors. Bottom line is lax is the ultramarine sport: gd teams are positive feedback loops by definition. Those top programs are late to their own show!

No one will “reboot” till 8th or 9th grade. 91 and Express will go national. They don’t need other LI kids to migrate like in the past. Kids from TX, FL, or GA will do just fine when they fly in. The days of sending 15 to 18 LI kids from one team to premier college lax programs are over. Enjoy these younger years with less movement and make some friends and enjoy some wins along the way. After 7th grade it will become more cut throat than ever.

91 has a great tryout camp. Not bad for a workout for your kid. For years people have thought that 91 and Express were the only 2 top options around. It has become clear that there are other teams at different age groups that not only compete with those two but often beat them consistently. It is about finding a club where your child will have a great overall experience. Find a program where your son is valued and is continuing to improve and enjoy the game. Every club is in it to make money. They are all big businesses, and you are the customer. Spend your money as you see fit.

Relax guy, we understand! You didn’t have to work so hard trying to justify in your mind why your kid got crushed at the 91 tryout!

Rebels, Igloo then Chucks( huge improvement)
S2S isn’t on the same level. They barely beat some bad NJ teams this fall. Rebels have solid core, but this summer will be a test with other teams understanding how to stop their core kid. Best of luck everyone this summer.

That’s why I love being a 91 parent, the game hasn’t even started and we already get under your skin! That’s because you know your kids team is inferior!

If you just want some extra lacrosse then I’m sure it’s fine. But events like these are money grabs. The competition and coaching will subpar at best.
