The 5/6th grade division has a lot of New Jersey clubs. As a festival, not tournament maybe clubs are more interested in possible t-shirts than just a fun day of lacrosse.
Went back and looked at the 2012 teams - well populated from Long Island. Have not seen this year's 5th/6th grade roster, but if you are right, many Long Island teams have opted out this year. Very concerned that BOTC was not covering this event particularly given the Long Island drop off. [/quote]
This year the 5/6 division has 22 teams with 12 from Long Island and 5 from other parts of NY. So that leaves at most 5 Jersey teams.
