Team Long Island is a great program! The prices are very reasonable!!And the coaches are great and committed! The organization isnt as big as some of the others, which i see as a better experience!

Thanks for the comments, this will help us make decision in the spring.

Do they post the tournaments on the web?

Do families stay together inthe same hotels when out of town?

Thanks again.....

How old are your kids? Tryouts are over, but there are some age groups that might need kids. I don't think they post the tourneys. The teams all stay together when they are out of town.

Thanks...we are involved with the Yellowjackets also and have become accustomed to how things are done over the years...We missed tryouts due to the heavy rain back in Aug/Sept and were away for the next date....We are looking at the third grade group.

TLI does a lot over the winter. I would call and see if there is room now.

That would be the beginning of the end with team long island.. Why would they risk there program name to merge with 91? Doubtful gongas would charge the big $ that 91 does!

Heard from some Comsewogue people that Gongas is looking to merge the program. Also heard that longtime Gongas/ Team Long Island partner Dave Koharts son is coaching at 91.

Thought that Adam Kohart was involved with the Millon Force now based on e-mail addresses?

I guess it's time for Team LI to start making a profit on the backs of the lacrosse community. 91 has done nothing but "swindle" people of their money. 2nd/3rd grade teams with parents paying $1300. Crazy. Buy a lax wall for $200 and have your kid practice.

How many and what tourneys?

The average tourney fees these days is about $1,500 per team with most teams doing 5 tourneys a year. Even with 22 kids on a team that's still roughly $70/player not including coaching fees. $70 x 5 = $350. An indoor league will be another $100-$150/player depending on the league and number of kids on a team (agian, no coaching fees). That alone is $450-$500! Add in coaches fees and expenses, uniforms, insurance, etc.

There are no coaches fees! They are volunteers! TLI also does fundraising to subsidize the costs. Some teams end up paying less than that.

I have always known TLI to be a competitive team. It seems damn near impossible that they can maintain an organization at $500.00 per player. Like I said - If they can do it, God bless them - they deserve it.

You can't think of it like the other organizations! No one is in it for the money! Whatever the costs are are divided up equally between the members of the team. The teams do fund raisers and that comes directly off the bottomline. The teams are competitive with the top teams! my son's team did way more practices than 10, probably 3 times that!

It was a scrimmage!!!! No refs, coaches on the field instructing(sometimes taking time out to explain) no penalties called, lots of rotations of lines. Both teams looked good. I had it 5-5 but who cares. These two teams can compete and they will just get better.

It was actually 6-5, but who cares? TLI is a very good team. It will be a great summer with these 2 teams and 91! Should all be very competitive. It was actually great to see both coaches working together to help all the kids! Hope we see more of that,all the kids will benefit.

with all the negativity surrounding these club teams, here you have two competitive teams whose coaches see the value in a great scrimmage which was a teaching/learning experience for both teams and you're going to start the "my team is better than your team" nonsense? Shame on you ...GROW UP!

Please don't react to the nonsense on here. I guarantee the original comments about the score were not from a TLI parent. There are people (probably from another team) who just like to stir the pot. Do yourself a favor and don't get sucked into the BS! It was a positive experience for all who WERE THERE! leave it at that!

As a general rule of sportsmanship, scrimmages do NOT have scores. Scrimmages are organized practices where set plays and pieces are replayed during the match in order to allow the players to master (or learn) the technique. You might have been counting the numbers of times the ball found the Back the THE CAGE, but that does not mean you were keeping score of a game.
