I have a child who played for express and have played both yj blue and suffolk all-stars. We beat suffolk all-stars and we were beaten by yj blue . In my opinion the better players on yj blue were the more athletic and probably the best players I had seen in that age group. The all-stars may have been better coached running more plays etc. but would be surprised if all-stars would beat them if both teams going all-out.My mediocre town team beat the all-stars in the indoor league last winter but I would not assume the same would happen when all-stars are trying their hardest.Yj blue starters do seem to be physically larger and I have heard that a good number are hold backs but do not know that for a fact.
