Every organization is free to charge whatever they want for a tryout fee. Does this mean that if one group charges $100 they are better than the rest? Are they better than a group that is charging two new white lacrosse balls? No they are not. Bottom line is they can get whatever the market is paying. Just like any other product out there. Nor’Easter Lax is a program that is charging two new white lacrosse balls for their tryouts.
Nor'Easter Lax is a five year old organization that was formed to host Long Island lacrosse teams in a Showcase Tournament on Long Island. Since its inception we have attracted teams from a wide variety of areas and not just Long Island. This over the years has become a very successful venue for college recruiters. This past summer we had 25 college coaches on our sidelines for the showcase event. Additionally we began to organize and run a Men’s Grand Masters and Men’s Masters Summer League. These two leagues are successful and popular. Finally it was time to organize and run a Men’s Open and Women’s Open Division Summer League. They both have become popular and are the best priced on Long Island. The Men’s Open began with four teams. This past summer we expanded to nine teams. Summer of 2012 we are anticipating expansion again, and along with that we’ll be keeping our fee’s the same as if it were still 2011.
Now for 2012 we’re ready to have summer select teams represent Nor’Easter Lax at summer and fall events. We’re starting with U11 & U13 only. We want to develop kids, not just run a program with multiple teams to bring in revenue. Once established, we’ll certainly expand to other age groups including the Varsity level. Our goal as any program will be to win, however, our main goal is to develop players and prepare them for the next level. Additionally we’ll help the parents and educate them for the recruiting process as we are now including College Athletic Advisement to our program along with private lacrosse lessons and clinics.
John Lang and Rich Petillo, the co-directors of Nor’Easter Lax are currently HS coaches who have been involved in the lacrosse world for 27 years. Building many relations with local HS and numerous college coaches nationally! Year after year, more and more college coaches come to us for players. This year alone we have 11 players signing National Letters Of Intent! Three of our alumni have NCAA National Championship Rings.
