my daughter plays for yellow jackets..from may, june and july we had over 24 practices. It all depends on what team and who your coaches are.

Your right. Only the "blue" teams get the best of the best as far as getting your money's worth. Extra practices, good coaches, and the ability to try out wearing their blue uniform. It is difficult for the other players to prove themselves, specifically in the younger age groups, and be moved into the "blue" program. The older girls seem to be selected more on skill than the younger girls.

My kid played on the Pride, Yellow Jackets and Liberty. Pride= walk on team coached by HS kids, YJ = as long as you can buck up your kid will be put on "a" team coached by hung over college kids and they play their girls down in every tournament, Liberty = disciplined and the most selective, coached by college coaches. I will find out soon if it was all worth it, my kid deciding between 2 D1 schools and had quite a FEW d#3 interested. Her grades are 88-94 overall avg, not a great student but she tries. Thanks for this blog, wish it was done sooner and hope we all halp each other.

The tryouts for the Liberty are on the Tryouts board with the locations. Is that what you were looking for?

They are really not based out of any certain area- practices are generally held in Nassau County- St. Doms, Mitchel Field and Seaman Neck Park. The woman who runs it is Danielle Gallagher, I believe she is also involved w/ USA Lacrosse? You can google it- legit operation, the organization does not take on everyone who tries out-unlike other clubs who will take anyone with a check. 3 girls later I found out the hard way.

Thanks for this site, good stuff.

The past two years I have seen girls walk onto a team in the spring, never having attended a tryout. That's legit or a girl with a check?

That is due to the fact that some girls quite the teams over winter and there was still space on teams - this was my kid 2 years ago

No it was liberty. Two of my daughter's friends have skipped tryouts and then gone on to get a spot on a team with no tryout. Two years in a row I have seen this happen and I have no ill will towards liberty, just stating a fact.

Do not listen to that Liberty parents who clains all teams are coached bY college coaches. All these clubs are coached by college players or experienced parents/high school coaches assisted by college players.

The Liberty is Manhasset and Garden City based. Yellow Jackets are run by Northport Varsity Coach(play on the Yellow Jackets or do not play High School). The LI Express is run by St. Anthonys coaches, Chaminade coaches and Ward Melville coaches and athletic director.

All these programs are the same, the elite players get treated great and the rest can play as long as you pay, IT IS ALL ABOUT THE MONEY.

It was good to see Capital Blue 2013 finally get a chance to play YJ 2013. Capital won the Club Championship this summer and YJ won the u15 championship in Orlando defeating a team of talented rising 8th and 9th graders from Northern VA in the final. Capital defeated YJ 8-2 in the President's Cup this past weekend in Naples.
