no, we play for WM. But I agree, those three schools are all very strong-

We know a few boys on each team as the result of club teams...

If smithtown goes to one HS, they will be terrific...

You seem very defensive--or passive agressive. Sorry you are not having a good experience

Foolish, silly-really? Try seeing the bright side of things from time to time, you will feel better.


You seem all full of vim and vigor. Clearly your son is one of the top players (for now). Try walking in someone elses shoes for just a minute. I would guess in a tight game like the one you're talking about, maybe 20 kids from each team, the kids that start on either of the two 1&3 or 2&4 lines, got any real play time. The rest of the kids and their parents probably 40 plus kids combined from both teams got to watch a great game. Until you know what that feels like, tone it down a bit. I'm sure a number of those kids who watched a lot, could play on many other MS teams. Surely many of them could make a travel team. Guess what? As you move into HS, play time is worse. D1 commits not playing at top HS programs as seniors, juniors also D1 commits, no play time. As well as top D3 commits and prospects. Be humble, and respectfull of all the players, hopefully your son will never find himself in this situation...

Or your sons could be 7th graders playing on a MS combined 7/8th grade team, where the 8th graders get almost all the playing time. That sucks.

Three Village doesn't give their players a choice as to whether they want to play for a club team......rumor has it that they must play for the school and they are not permitted to play with an outside team otherwise they risk not playing on the JV or Varsity team....if you have a strong program with depth and can compete at tournaments with A teams this is all good, but when a schools lacrosse program is not as strong, players shouldn't be looked down upon for playing on club teams to advance their game. I am not talking about not playing for the school, as the player should represent their school with pride good, bad or ugly, I am referring to playing with the school through middle school years and getting up to JV and Varsity and not getting the playing time because the player chooses to play with a club team as well as the school team. This kind of behavior from coaches has the same kind of affect on the player, the coach isn't directly telling you not to play on an outside team because you will suffer the consequences, but their actions speak just as loud.

There are currently 20 + Ward Melville boys 2018 and 2017 (current 7th and 8th grade) that play for Club Teams. All of those boys play for their JHS team. The JHS coaches play who the think are the best players. There are current seniors in college from Ward Melville who played for Club teams, this is nothing new. Some of the best players to come out of Ward Melville in recent years have played for Club Teams and there are current players on their Varsity who either play now or have played for a club in the past. I think the coaches play who they think give their team the best chance of winning. The coaches are not always get it right but that happens everywhere at every level. Don't think next year will be any different.

look, i feel badly for all the kids that didn't get to play this year, as someone said, it sucks. I have been in both positions several times. everyone wants to go and watch their kid play, have fun and compete. none of us make these decisions, the coaches do.

no vigor here, simply saying yesterday was a great game and lots of fun. unlike others our experience with ms lax has been positive, that is all plain and simple.

sorry your experience has not been positive. good luck to you and your son.

(for now)--you are the kind of person hoping for someone that is good to fail? hoping you can point your finger years from now and say i told you so???

relax and enjoy your children. lax is a game and this site is about talking about the game. you have a chip on your shoulder and i feel bad for you.

there is no meaningful lax employment and no real scholarship $. let those of that have good players (for now) enjoy the time...

having been through it twice now i would encourage any group of parents that can pull it off to skip middle school lacrosse. School budgets have created a situation where there are too many kids per team and not enough coaches manage them properly. In 10 years it will be the norm just like soccer.

Cuts need to be made. They do it for academic classes. The same needs to be done for athletic teams. A Lacrosse team should have 22 max. Period!!

I get your point but who would they play? Need a bunch of teams to do it.
