Enough already, the “rules” are a joke and we all know it. It is what it is.


Now who is winning tri-star this weekend??? I’m taking venom.

Well, if you don’t care that Leading Edge is using kids entering 10th grade on their 2028 team— I will tell you. Leading Edge will not lost a game. Period. And on Monday you’ll agree that 10th graders playing in a 2028 team might not be a fair proposition after all.

Leading Edge lost in pool play and Venom got smoked by Chucks. So neither of the takes aged well. Just let the kids compete and get ready for HS.

Ha! That’s great that your 9th grader had his age verified as 16. We don’t have age rules so what exactly are they verifying? “No, it’s cool, my kid is a “verified” holdback”. Hahahaha

Venom doesn’t have a great track record at this tournament. Maybe next year they should consider doing Lax Fest

Read the rules on the website. So funny no matter the rules people find a way to complain. Maybe join a more competitive team or go to Laxfest

The issue is that A teams have an expectation that AA (especially at the top clubs) of thinking they are the best and it’s more so every team in AA at the HS level can beat another AA team. Venom can go to 2-0 vs teams next time. There less and less and examples of elite teams they win most of the time. OG Turtles, Crush and now 2026 Express. It’s a good thing to have teams compete and win and lose on any random day.

Seeds:
Eclipse
Express North
BBL Black
Express chucks
3D New England
BBL shore
Leading Edge
PrimeTime

Eclipse will not have played a top team until the semi-finals

North getting leading edge has to be the worst 2-7 matchup you could ask for.

BBL black gets shore who they will crush

Chuck’s v 3d ne will be a great game.

I’ve got eclipse v 3D ne in one semi

BBL black and leading edge in the other.

Leading edge over 3d NE in final.

I don’t know any 16-year-old 8th graders. That’s a bit of a stretch. detest to break it to you, but being 15 years old is legal. We are in June.

They’re couple on teams. Parents won’t admit but the kids do.

3D has a few 2008 birthdates, the rest are 2009 with a couple of 2010s sprinkled in. That is roughly the same for 2way, RH, and LE. Hence why they were all put in the "Cheater Bracket" this past weekend.

If your 13-year-old is playing 2028, you’re likely from New York, where the December 1 cutoff puts them at a disadvantage, often leading to holdbacks born in September or October.

Most other states use a September 1 cutoff, making June and July holdbacks common. With the new lacrosse rules setting a June 1 cutoff, most kids outside New York are 14 turning 15, and some are already 15 by June.

The aggressive holdbacks? They’re almost 16 or already there.

It will even out. Those older kids beating up on little kids aren't going to be ready to play kids older than them when they get to varsity. Wakeup call coming.

Anyone laughing at that team has a few screws loose or are probably an ex-player parent or maybe currently on express. At least venom uses the kids on their roster. Not saying that won’t change in the future but geez, the jealousy runs deep.
