I was told by a reliable source that they are not out yet. There are a few people with connections that know they are getting one...

Again, not first hand info.

I think some people may be confused about this event. It is a two day event, club teams playing on Sunday, individuals playing on Saturday.

the invites everyone is waiting on are for the Saturday individual event. for the Sunday event, yes our team is going but we have not yest received the individual invite for Saturday although we are told my son will get one.

Like everything else in life, if you are the top four players on your AA travel team, you will get an invite. If you are on terps, extreme, dukes, you can probably get invite if coach ranks you top 7...

For those that are just waiting, make sure you tell your coach that you want to get your son in. If you leave this one to luck, you wont get the invite to Saturday...

The guys sending the invites are doing so based upon coach recommendations. so if Mike C or sal say my whole team should be picked, the philly guys will say we can't do that so give me your top 7 or so choices. For realistic people who know where they stand on their club, use your HS coach if you are not top of club team...

Some free advice from someone that has been through this before...

spot on post, the only thing I would add is if you have been contacted or in contact with a college and/or have a relationship with a college coach, they can also recommend a player and college coach recommendations carry a lot of weight

well done... i wouldn't get your hopes up and don't get discouraged. 36 of the 200 were from Long Island, but that is still quite low with the talent pool.

Last year breakdown:
LI Express - 12
Team91 - 8
fl$ - 6
Team LI - 4
LI Outlaws - 3
GC - 2
Jesters - 1

No players or teams of note are at that silly convention of a tourney. And FCA is a team of whatever they could scrape together at the last moment.

thank you for the updates, we were on the team this year but could not make it this week and since JR is not texting me updates and the tourney does not post results it is nice to keep up with the team on BOTC........

August is a football month. No reason to attend a lax event in August. August tournaments are just another excuse to throw away cash.

Was invited to play with fca, knew it would be a waste of time. Good decision for us, also, Turtles brought nothing to fca, it was an embarrassment. Why was tourney a joke, because they lost?

August is a football month, no need to go to a lax website.....is it possible that there are some kids that don't play football, this tournament has been around 25 years so it must have some allure - perhaps that it is in a beautiful resort town with a lot of things for the whole family to do and you can have a really nice family vacation and also play some lacrosse....imagine a tournament that was just for fun

So just how many top 10 D1 coaches are chilling on the sidelines up there anyway? My guess is prob a whopping zero (unless they are playing in the masters tournament)

Yes; a convention of a tourney... Terps begging kids to go; FCA filling spot just as mentioned by whatever mercenaries they can get, sweet lax trying to make a "committed only team" that serves only to sweeten their club's name if they win.....

Twerps beating twerps in the semi's? .......wow.

Seriously....not on the "must be there" radar for anyone.

Hate all you want but this has been a well run tourney with some great competition in a great setting. You will be hard pressed to find anybody here say a bad thing about the experience. Are there college coaches here? No, but that may be part of the great experience. The kids seem to be having a blast and the adults are all very well behaved. But keep on hating all you unhappy souls.
