In Nassau keep an eye out for Northshore, a core of about 15 have been playing together since 2nd grade. the last 2 summers they have played as "Palm Bay Hurricanes" if they get good coaching in middle school they can be very good.

Holy Mackrel!!!!!! How could anyone be in a position to rank 7th grade middle school town teams. Can BOTC be that devoid of good topics and conversation that we have someone rank and give an overview of these teams. I understand it promotes conversation but this has to be one of the dumbest posts I have ever seen. I guess the post writer/lacrosse 7th grade guru has scouted all the suffolk teams at the 7th grade level and has accumulated quite a scouting report!!!!OMG seriously!!

Actually, if there was an organizing local league, you would see the pecking order well-established much earlier. In the soccer world, you see travel and club teams ranked by their league competition starting at U/9, not just U/13 (seventh grade).

Agree 100%. By starting threads like these we are promoting the posturing, bragging, and even negative comments we have seen on other threads. Does it really matter who the best 7th grade team is? It can make for interesting comments but ultimately it will come down to "I'm better than you" nonsense. 7th grade lacrosse, town or select, should be about learning teamwork, respect, and hard work. Let them be kids and just play and improve - the ultra competitive years of the recruiting cycle are still a few years off.

Really not a Guru, just attend 4-6 tournaments a year for the past 3 years, look at the results of who's playing in the "A" division and there you go.

Noone is bein negative just discussing teams who will be playing each other for the next 5 years and battling for championships.

This is just a discussion not a national ranking. if it makes you feel better you can take the numbers away and discuss differnet teams or programs. With that said its a 2017 forum. The better forum should be why is it in lacrosse people always get uncomfortable with the competition or rankings? Hockey super competitive at this age, Soccer national rankings u-9, baseball teams are vying to play in the Little League world series on ESPN, Tennis and gymnastics you basically move away from home and nationally ranked. Why are lacrosse people so sensative? embrace competition and know where you stand it will make you better.

I embrace the competition on the field between the players. What I don't agree with is competition among the parents. The difference between youth lacrosse rankings and the other sports you mentioned is a governing, neutral body making the rankings. If youth lacrosse had some sort of governing body (yes, I know all about US Lacrosse)that did the rankings, then we would have something to hang our hat on. I love competition and playing the best teams but hate people talking smack!

The point is that it doesn't make a difference who is #1 in the Seventh grade. Having kide who played soccer and have some expirence the BOTC sister site BOTN lets not star having threads like them. Like the poster above said, the parents will start coming on here here spout nonsens about how there Johnny os better then your Freddy

Is saying one team is stronger than another talking smack? I agree these boards have a tendancy to get nasty, but i see no issue with someone saying team A is stronger than team B to start a discussion. And furthermore i would like to know what teams are strong in different areas so we can choose to play in more competitive tournaments and leagues which they participate. lets move forward and keep it positive.
