FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What exactly is the Looney’s Lacrosse Club?

The Looneys Lacrosse Club is a not-for-profit lacrosse club based in Harford, Baltimore, and other surrounding counties, consisting of boys ranging in age from 10 to 17.

Is anyone eligible to try-out?

All boys currently in grades 4 through 9 are eligible to try-out. Your geographic residence, school, past club affiliations, or years of experience, do not preclude you from try-outs. You must attend at least a portion of try-outs on the scheduled dates to be evaluated.

How are try-outs conducted?

The coaches and officers of the club make selections. To ensure that evaluations are as objective as possible: 1) we will seek the assistance of select knowledgeable third parties; and 2) if an officer/coach is a parent of a player on a team, that coach will not participate in the evaluation of the players on that team. Among the factors on which players are evaluated is speed, athletic ability, strength, stick skills and scrimmage play. All boys who attend will be notified of the results shortly after tryouts are complete. Placement decisions are final.

How do I register to try-out?

The dates, times, and location of try-outs are outlined in the Registration section of this website. Registration is to be completed online. You may pay by credit card or check. Any changes due to weather or unforeseen events will posted in the announcements section of this website. There is a $30 non-refundable fee for trying-out. This is used to pay for non-reusable materials and facilities required for try-outs.

How are your coaches selected?

The best man’s lacrosse player in the world is not guaranteed to be able to teach an 11 year old boy to play lacrosse and the best teacher in the world can’t teach a boy how best to scoop a lacrosse ball in traffic if he’s never done it himself. Based on this, each Looney’s team will be coached by an individual who has significant personal experience in playing lacrosse AND has significant experience coaching/teaching children and young adults. It is our view, that this is the best way to ensure that our players will have the opportunity to actually take in and retain the knowledge imparted to them.

If my son signs up for Looney’s and makes a team will he have to stop playing for his recreation/MYLA team?

No. All players should continue with their current program. Club lacrosse season starts after the LAST recreation/MYLA weekend.

What does a season consist of and when/how much will you practice?

The club lacrosse season occurs from June through November, with at least three tournaments in June and July, and the entire month of August off. Teams will practice occasionally in May when rec teams schedules allow, and one or two evenings per week starting approximately the first week in June. This schedule will last throughout the summer tournament season. Fall practices will be infrequent and will vary. There may be only one or two prior to each tournament.

Where will you practice?

All of our teams practice at either Friends or St. Paul's Schools

How do I join US Lacrosse?

Log on to www.uslacrosse.org and click on 'membership info.' You will receive a confirmation e-mail with your membership number.

Why is a US Lacrosse membership required?

For insurance purposes, the sponsors of many of the tournaments in which we play require that each player be a member of US Lacrosse. We therefore require all players to join US Lacrosse. US Lacrosse membership information is available at www.uslacrosse.org. The membership fee also includes Lacrosse Magazine for one year and possible discounts on any US Lacrosse tournament

How did you select the tournaments?

These tournaments are known to be very well organized, host competitive teams and have an emphasis on college recruiting activities for the older teams.

Within all tournaments, do all the kids play equal amounts?

All athletes will receive a fair opportunity to compete but this does not guarantee equal playing time. Our teams will play to win with increasing emphasis as the teams get older. Playing time will be earned, with hard work, attitude, coachability, attendance and on-field success playing a role in determining the amount.

How many boys per team will the Looney’s teams carry?

We will carry approximately 16-22 boys per team. That is the maximum number of kids our volunteer organization can handle and ensure the highest quality and best experience for all.

How do you communicate with the players and family members?

Communication is primarily via email and website. We expect that you will access an email account on a daily basis to receive and reply to updates and announcements and to check this website for general less time-critical info.

What is your refund policy?

In general, no refunds will be permitted once a boy has made the team, accepted the position and his deposit checks have been cashed. If there is a very special circumstance, it will be evaluated by Board of Directors of Looney’s Lacrosse Club for Boys.

Once a child is a member of a Looney’s team, will they be required to try out again each year?

Yes. Our youngest boys may be as young as 10 years old when they try out for the first time. It would be irresponsible of us to assume that they will all remain great lacrosse players until they are 17! In order to ensure that a boy’s game and character are successfully growing, he must try out and make the team each year.

Their tryouts are always the weekend after Labor Day weekend. Check their website in August for dates, age groups, times....

Quite a lot of disparity among these teams...some good, others not well coached. Very expensive club...buyer beware!
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Looney's Boys Lacrosse - 07/16/13 01:32 PM
agreed but you can say the same of any club. There are so many clubs now for the most part the parent and kid should judge the actual team they are playing for first, then the club. It is team by team with most clubs anywhere these days.

How much is it for the Looneys summer season ?
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Looney's Boys Lacrosse - 07/16/13 05:00 PM
every team is different since some play in more tourneys and practice more than others but for the whole year (fall tourneys, spring league, and summer tounreys) they range between $850-$1,050.00 total. Again, depends on the team.

They are about avg. compared to others and have a good product. Other clubs are much more $$. In our experience it has been very good value.

Damn those prices would put them as one of the lowest priced teams on LI if they were from here.

Are the Looney's doing anything to get more competitive at the younger levels? I have heard that they focus on the 2015 year and let the other grades finance that group...seems the club changed since the board turned over
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Looney's Boys Lacrosse - 07/17/13 03:51 AM
Older age-group team and younger team are competitive...not so much for the middle-school age teams. Club costs are typically about $1,200 for the year.

What happened with Looney's 2017 Orange team? At fl$ in 3d they went 0-3 and were outscored 32-6 with one shutout. My son's team had faced them in prior years and they were competitive.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Looney's Boys Lacrosse - 11/22/13 12:17 PM
Unfortunately many of their better players left for other programs. I believe their older and younger programs are more competitive. The 2017 talent in Baltimore has shifted to Breakers, CA and Crabs. We'll see if the new coaching at the Greene Turtle can bring talented players back into that program.

Looney's is an organization on the decline. They may have 1 or 2 competitive teams, but they epitomize the daddy ball philosophy at several of their age groups. People who are trying to get away from at the REC level won't be well served there.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Looney's Boys Lacrosse - 08/13/14 06:47 PM
Completely false. Make your own judgments but they are one of the top programs in Baltimore. Crabs is number one top to bottom. After that it is a mixed bag depending on the grad year. All of the other clubs are basically even after crabs. Good team this year, avg the next etc
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Looney's Boys Lacrosse - 08/13/14 08:01 PM
All the Looney's resources are poured into the 2016 team...the director's son plays there. That is why there were so many defections a year or 2 back.

BS. he has 2 other kids the play on middle school teams and coaches 2021 team. they have non-parent coaches on the HS teams. look at the website, coaches bios are there. all dad coaches have had significant playing careers and experience coaching youth lacrosse. most clubs have parent coaches at younger levels.

emergence of FCA 2 years ago hurt Looneys as some of the coaches went there and kids followed. Really effected Green Turtle. I'm sure some the FCA kids would have ended as Crabs or breakers too. FCA btw has mostly parent coaches

Probably the 2021 b team. They have a and b. By the looks of their results this summer they are hardly on the decline. Be real. All of these programs are pretty much the same beyond crabs. Good grad years, avg ones, poor ones. After crabs in baltimore looneys, breakers, turtle, roughriders, rock, fca are all about the same.

The 2021 team didn't do well at all this summer
1 - 2 at Green Turtle
2 - 3 at Blue Hen
2 - 3 at NXT Cup

Looney's started their club with a bang. That team (which is now the 2015 team) had some great talent. They followed it up with another really good team (2016s).

Since then, the subsequent grade-based teams have been pretty marginal. The 2017 team, for example, is really non-competitive. The magic they caught in a bottle for the first two teams has escaped them subsequently.

Overall, it's not a great club.

Crabs is still the best club top to bottom. FCA is on a tier below, followed by Breakers. The other clubs are much farther down the foodchain.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Looney's Boys Lacrosse - 08/14/14 04:34 PM
Agree with your assessment totally. 2018 & 2019 "A" teams are horrible. 2020 is decent, but will loose their players when reality hits....

Fca hurt the 2017 and 2018 teams. Took both coaches and a lot of kids followed. They have recovered ok but definitely are still hurting from it. Other younger teams are strong, kids are having fun, older kids committing to good colleges. Overall a very good program.

Top to bottom crabs only have 2 teams last year add 2021 team that was .500 at best.

No. They are good at capturing the youth market in DC, but the HS program is pretty weak. Most of the best kids peel off for Blackwolf, Crabs and VLC when they reach HS.

FCA is building a very strong program top to bottom. They have been able to attract a lot of MD kids and DC kids.

I would have to disagree that Looneys 2019 A team is horrible. We played them twice in MVP Blue Hen, tied once and we did beat them in the final. Seemed to be well coached and had some talent. You sure you arent speaking of their lower 2019 team?
They had a goalie and a pole that could easily play for better teams.

You're right. Why bring facts into an argument about which club has a better record top to bottom?
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Looney's Boys Lacrosse - 08/15/14 12:22 PM
A very high level college football coach told me that the best players will be found, You just have to get them on the field. So lets stop acting like any of us Dads care about the name on the front of the Jersey we only care about the name on the back. We all use the club programs as much or more the the people running them. Everyone should move there kid until they get to play/start.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Looney's Boys Lacrosse - 08/15/14 03:01 PM
Very good point! There are very good players on some of the premiere teams looking for the opportunity to have a more prominant role on a 2nd tier team. Still good coaching and good quality of play, just slightly less talented and less depth. The depth of talent often separates the premiere teams from the 2nd tier teams.

One, these are stats, not facts.

Two, these "stats" are skewed. Not every club listed here fielded the same number of teams. Some fielded teams in NPYLL. Some in Hoco. Some in both. Some fielded teams at the A level. Some only in B. Some in both.

There is a wide variance among these teams in terms of number of teams fielded, teams in HoCo, teams in NPYLL, teams in both, teams who played NPYLL A, NPYLL B, etc.

Thus, the winning percentage stats are rendered meaningless. The only thing you can draw is that the author of the "study" is weird.

I didnt realize that the only guideline for a successful club season was winning percentage. Interesting.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Looney's Boys Lacrosse - 08/15/14 05:59 PM
Correct your Kid should care about his high school team winning or losing, and care about becoming a better player anywhere and everywhere else he plays. I am sure those AAU Basketball kids do not care if there teams are winning or not. They care about how much they scored, who saw them play, and if there Jumper or free throws got better.

Thus, the winning percentage stats are rendered meaningless. The only thing you can draw is that the author of the "study" is weird.


These stats are only for the top level teams at each grade level. No B or C level league results were included. These are the very top teams representing each club at all Grade levels (a win for the top 2rd grade team counts as much as a win for the top 8th grade team). The information came from the NPYLL and HoCo websites and about ½ hour of effort was taken to put them all together in a spreadsheet. The stats/facts are only as good as the NPYLL and HoCo websites.



In some cases, the clubs chose not to field a team at the top level in each grade. Some clubs only fielded 2 top level teams total. Other clubs had as many as 7. The top level HoCo leagues may not be at the same level as the top level Npyll leagues, but I think they are in the same ball park. - so yes the results are skewed, but I don't believe they are meaningless.

I was at a loss on how to evaluate the multitude of clubs out there today to justify the significant cost (Paying these costs for youth sport may be the real reason for a mental health examination).

All clubs "build character", "improve a player's skills", "win championships" and put out D1 players – just look at their websites. But as everyone points out, most clubs are inconsistent top to bottom having good and bad teams and coaches within the organization. Depending on who you are talking to, the same team/coach could be good or bad. So I crunched the numbers.

I am open to any suggestions on a better way to compare the clubs top to bottom.

Is using tournament records any better? The overall tournament competition is very inconsistent especially with teams using “guest players” and playing down a grade level or teams just hitting the weaker tournaments.

Is listing D1 commits better? D1 commits really only come from the older teams and you don’t know if the club that now has those players did the development of them.

Even talking to the coaches and attending many tryouts can't give a complete picture on how well your kid will fit on a team.

In general, I believe good coaching does translate into improved skills and therefore wins.

As for the weirdness, you can lump me in with the fantasy football and rotisserie baseball players. Guilty as charged.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Looney's Boys Lacrosse - 08/15/14 06:41 PM
The best way to "evaluate" a club is:

do the kids get better?

do the kids enjoy playing with their teammates/coaches

does it match my kid?

what is the reputation of the club in terms of developing impact HS players?

if my son wants to play in college, how successful is that club in getting their players recruited


Any of the above is much more important than wins, losses and/or tournament finishes.

And no, the work you did took a lot more than just 30 minutes. Come on.

Look, I agree with you 100%. It is not about the wins and losses and being on a club that struggles makes those Ws that much sweeter when they are the result of the time and effort put in as individuals and as a team. I realize most kids (mine included) will never play D1, D2, or D3 ball so trying to ride the coat-tails of the dominate team is no answer.

Also - some of these clubs are in regions without a large rec program feeding them. MD elite (Emmittsburg), MD Xtreme (Olney), and Storm (Eastern Shore) don't have nearly the same number of rec clubs (and lacrosse dads) getting the kids ready at the youngest ages as the Baltimore and Annapolis area clubs.

The big question is : Where do you go to get honest unbiased answers to your questions.

A lot of these questions can't be answered by the club or the families associated with the clubs - they will all tell you the same positive responses. They can't be answered by the families that have left the club (willingly or otherwise). You can see by reading this forum, for every post praising a club, there is a response bashing it.

Unless you spend a couple months with the club, you really can't tell if it is a good fit.

Do you think the high school coaches would be the best place to go for unbiased assessments of the clubs? I'd love to see a poll of the high school coaches ranking the different aspects of individual clubs.

Love the BOTC and most discussions, but I am tiring of these dubious arguments supported by misleading stats. There are 3 strong clubs in DC area: Madlax, VLC and Blackwolf. Madlax is the best top to bottom. Period.
Real Madlax youth stats: 23-10 at all AA levels in Spring NPYLL. That's a 70% win percentage BTW (23/33=.6969). Then dig a little deeper--U15AAA at 7-2 and U13AAA at 8-1. Losses to Crabs and Hawks, Baltimore and Annapolis teams respectively. Pretty good by my standards, and best teams at this critical age in Washington DC. To be fair, Crabs are still better top to bottom, but gap is closing. As a Baltimore club, Crabs are not a real option for us DC parents. Hawks (Annapolis) were awesome this past year, particularly at youth, but again too far for most DCers.

The Madlax U15 team won Dicks national title at Christmas (U13 then) and the current Madlax U13 team won the World Championship in Denver this July. Look it up, and confirm. The U13 team won 4 out of 5 tournaments this summer, losing in finals at Young Gunz to a loaded Dukes team. This team has lost only 2 games since it was formed in Fall of 2013 and is clearly one of the best, if not #1 U13 team in country (sorry LI). Won Next Level Fall League, all 3 Fall Tournaments, 2nd in Spring League after losing to Crabs in final by a goal. 2-1 v. the Crabs too, after beating them in fall NPYLL championship and in Young Gunz this Summer. There isn't a youth team in DC that can compete with these teams. In fact, VLC enters its U13 in B brackets to avoid Madlax, haters check Fall NPYLL and Summer Greene Turtle before responding. As you may know, Blackwolf doesn’t do youth, VLC only u11, and Madlax .500 at U9 and U11, although the Madlax U11’s had a great summer.
Madlax will continue to be stronger at 2018, as rising Freshmen will be the U15 AAA moving up -- including first 2018 commit to John Hopkins. Go watch them play – a very skilled and entertaining group. VLC not is same zip code and Blackwolf is in formation.
U15AAA will be best team in youth lacrosse in Washington DC, as it will be rising U13’s. Players are getting tremendous national exposure. Google them if you doubt me. VLC will continue to avoid this team.
Madlax is also very strong at 2017, as is VLC to be fair. Madlax stronger at 2016, VLC at 2015. Blackwolf is a ?? at these levels for me, although awesome reputation. As VLC’s really strong senior team dwindles, it will be left with 1 good team, at 2017. Further, this VLC team is loaded with Madlax defectors. Despite repeated efforts by coaches, VLC has been unsuccessful at recruiting Madlax players at other levels.
While change is constant, Madlax has consistently been the top program in the Washington DC area.

FCA - pretty solid across the board, '17s missing 1 defender, solid at midfield, 18's among the best around...strong beyond, will get better

Crabs - 17s losing their luster but still strong, need help at midfield, FCA may have passed them at '18 though Crabs pushed down a number of players...best days behind them...all about the $ there

Different take

Greene Turtle - new leadership, revamped and ready to take on the big lap dogs. Stronger than a hairless chiwawa.

Looney's - 16 Hercules strong, Orange teams are as strong as a manicotti filled with ricotta cheese.

FCA - Pound cake solid across the board, '17s missing 1 defender, solid at midfield, 18's stronger than any banana pie could hope to be,among the best desserts around, will get better

Crabs - 17s lost their luster but still stronger than Roseanne Barr after a Ten mile run, FCA may have passed them at '18 though Crabs pushed down every player at every age, still didnt help...best days behind them...all about the greenbacks there

Breakers - like the 17's, best defense in the MD city of Dundalk.. younger ages fall constantly on field but still solid as a sponge cake made by Uncle Ryan MC.

I coached against this team. There is talent on the squad. Give the kids and coaches time and they will compete at a higher level. Team chemistry doesn't happen over night, and not everyone can be on hawks or crabs or...whatever team.
Keep the kids together, coach them up and get some quality wins along the way. Plenty of lessons in losing to better teams and striving to beat them over time. Perseverance being one of them.

Great points! There are some advantages to being on a lessor team on the defensive side. Constantly being challenged and working hard. Being on an elite team on the defensive side can present limited opportunites to be challenged.

You're right. They didn't have a 2022 team last year. But, most of that team, including the coach were on the 2022 Koopers team from last year. They had a very rough year last year and I know some are the parents are wondering if it's worth the money when the second payment is due.

The Looney's had a fantastic 2015 team which is now done. The 2016s used to be excellent and are still very good. But the rest of the club is terrible. Perfect example of them having a strong nucleus in the 2015s, parlayed that into 2016s, but couldn't sustain it.

My son plays for a Looneys team and I have been happy. However, I have noticed that a certain rec council(Carroll Manor) seems to have taken over some of the teams. There are a large number of CM coaches and they are bringing their players instead of having kids from all over the area.

Looney's really is a club on the decline. They caught lightning in a bottle with their 2015 team and their 2016 team used to be among the best in the country. But they haven't parlayed that success into other teams.

Kids in MD want to play for Crabs and FCA before they even think about Looney's. Looney's are just another club in the mix on the same tier as Breakers, Hawks, etc. Nothing special.

you are right they are not in the same tier as the hawks. The hawks are a joke and are a good tier below. They over charge their players and are forced to play in their owner's own tourneys where he doesn't have to pay entry fees for his teams. That is called good profit. The only reason the hawks are any good at all is they have no competition in Annapolis. All of their good players leave for crabs anyway. Hawks have one of the worst reputations around.

The bigger question is why does Looneys play in such a weak spring league instead of playing teams that may actually have a chance to beat them? Have fun in Lax Splash beating up on rec teams Looneys. Oh that's right, you didn't even make the finals last year

Looney's was in the NYPLL 4 or 5 years ago. I think there was some bad blood between crab guys and former directors of Looney's. Don't know deets. Looney's 2020 doesn't duck anyone. They go where the best competition is as often as possible. They'll be in crabs tourney 4th july weekend. Played crabs in fall. There are many good teams, several very good teams and one exceptional team (91) in the 2020 grade. Should be fun year for all the boys/teams if the parents can contain themselves
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Looney's Boys Lacrosse - 03/31/15 12:33 PM
the top teams in each league are about equal to each other. All others are very weak in that year. pretty sure loonies played up last summer in lax splash and lost by one in the semis against an older team from LI. 91 was also in it. Get your facts straight hater

Who would you identify as a "top team" in the Hoco league that Looneys Orange is playing in for 2020? FAC depends if they bring the 4 kids down who have always played 2019 like they did for tournaments in the fall. Roughriders is no longer considered a top team. Who would be the competition in that age group if Hawks, Breakers and Crabs are all in NYPLL?

I actually think Looney's looked good but just had some sloppy stickwork at times. A few dropped passes in unsettled situations and the outcome vs. Express and/or Legacy might've been different.

What's difference with Looney's 2021 Orange and Green teams? Both play Hoco 2021A. A and B teams or pretty evenly split but only Orange has some older kids? I saw GT beat Orange 17-6 and Green 9-4.

Give Sons our fogo and they destroy both express and legacy. I watched both games and Sons controlled the game just couldn't win face offs. Express first 4 goals were on fast breaks off face off. It was worse vs Legacy, Sons had the ball the entire first half. I think legacy had 2 ground balls, both in front of the crease for goals. Sons need to go find themselves a stud fogo and they will be very tough to beat. They get after it.

I wouldn't read too much into this weekend. All of these teams will play each other again later in the year. We'll know by the end of the summer who has what. Having said that there is clearly more competition at the 2020 year than last year which is great to see. After all,that is how the boys get better.

Maybe they made a mistake and put 2021 Green in 2021A division instead of 22 Orange who is in 2022B. Seems they should have their top teams in A and lower teams in B.

Most of the good FOGO kids are accounted for. It may be easier for you to hold back a few more 2019 boys to get that win. Good luck.

Left him in the dust multiple times. Sons solid but do need a FOGO. Bucks needs a lot of work and help. Legacy middle of the road- some talent there but some glaring weakness. Crabs will beat both Long Island teams handily- no question. That fl$ team sucks! They need to start over.

2020 is one of the best in area. 2023,24 off to good starts. Like most clubs they have some years better than others. For any individual team, whether elite or not, if the kids have a great experience than kudos to kids, parents and coaches. Why someone would feel the need to anonymously characterize groups of kids as terrible is beyond me.

Posted By: Anonymous Re: Looney's Boys Lacrosse - 04/24/15 06:01 PM
The system is very clear with all travel youth sports. Start with the biggest and oldest programs first. Try to make them first. And then go from there until your kid makes a team. The worst thing you can do is go for the new upstart club. They never hold up. And even if that club can have that one team that is really good they never can keep it up with the younger ages. The next trick is the club should have as little Parents involved as possible. Look for the club to be linked to a big private school,store, or something that does not say I got my son and I am building this so he has somewhere to play. I agree new clubs do work out and become great clubs but you only have so many kids is the risk worth it?

The sad reality is that alot of these kids that hold back and are on the elite teams actually are very good players, but their parents want them to look like great players. So it really screws the very good players that are not hold backs, but now are pushed down from prominant starters to role players. Where is the justice in that? Yes, shallow victories knowing that your team had more and better hold backs than the other teams.

FCAs tourney team brings several kids down from 2019 - some true 2020s and some hold backs. No sure about Looneys. Breakers are all 5/1 or after. Currently no holdbacks.

Agreed-not only their size which there is a possibility that they could be tall for their age but their physical development is beyond a 13/14 year old. Unfortunately nothing anyone can do about it - teams that play them just have to accept the fact that at least 1/2 the team is a year to two older. Just their way and when you take that into account they are not really that good. Ryan just needs to win by manipulating the system.

Just how big are these kids? If you are pulling from a fairly wide area it wouldn't be that hard to have several kids approaching 6 feet.

Well, look at it this way...statistically, how many 13 year olds are 6' tall or more, probably not many, right. Given that, how could they have 4-5 of them in one group of 20?

Glad you finally fessed up but to be fair would say they are more like 14 and 15 year olds. Nothing to appreciate when they need to manipulate the rules and
are not thatgood when legitimate 2020s are within 1-2 goals.

There are usually one or two at each middle school that play lacrosse. Pull from several middle schools and it wouldn't be hard at all. My son's 2020 team doesn't have any holdbacks and it has several kids that are 5'10 or taller.

Not sure what middle school you are looking at but there are no 6 footers in our middle school much less 6 footers in 7th grade that play lacrosse. Maybe if they are holdbacks but even then the likelihood of all of the tall kids being able to play at an elite level it is a long shot. Crabs prides itself on holdbacks and encourages it -no judgment but let's not deny it either. Several of their 2020s tower over their coaches who are not small men.

Yea right, they are 15 -16 year olds. No wait, they only paly like their 15-16 year olds. Get a grip. Appreciate good players and good lax and move on.


Well, look at it this way...statistically, how many 13 year olds are 6' tall or more, probably not many, right. Given that, how could they have 4-5 of them in one group of 20?


There are usually one or two at each middle school that play lacrosse. Pull from several middle schools and it wouldn't be hard at all. My son's 2020 team doesn't have any holdbacks and it has several kids that are 5'10 or taller.


5'10' sure, 6'1,190' and singing baritone in the Crabs choir, um...no.

As usual, your simpleton attempt at stats fails. Kids who are playing athletics are not the same as a normal sample of kids, let alone athletes playing at a high level. It is easily possible for an elite youth team to have kids larger, faster, stronger, etc. than most kids at that age.

Keep on crying, dad.

My son is a 2018 that played on the Crabs U13 team two years ago and half that team was between 5'9" and 5'11". They could have passed as a basketball team in comparison to most teams and there were no holdbacks on the U13 level two years ago. If you are attracting most of the best players within a 50 mile radius, they typically are going to be more advanced than the average kids. "Bigger, Faster, Stronger!" Then you throw the holdbacks into the current class based scenario, having 6' kids in that class is understandable.

I guess it's ok to fly in a player from Florida but not to have kids that are 6'. What does US lacrosse have to say about recruiting players from 1000+ miles away for your youth team?

Not crying, just SMH. The CDC publishes data on this. At the 95th percentile a 13 year old boy is approximately 5'7 145#. A 6'+ 13 year old is off the charts - 99.999999 percentile. Four of them in a group of 20? Don't think so.

A few points:
Your number is an exaggeration even given the numbers you use. See http://reference.medscape.com/calculator/height-age-percentile-boys for yourself.

Holdbacks or not the age of an elite team is going to skew higher so 13.5 or more is a better age to use. Older kids are simply more likely to make the team.

The lacrosse demographic is wealthier than average so it probably skews taller and the CDC table isn't reflective of the actual players

A player in helmet and cleats is going to look taller than he is.

Using the CDC tables approximately 1% of 13.5 year old boys are going to be 5' 10 or taller. Using 14 as an age it is more like 3.5%.

Given that the teams are selected by tryouts from a well nourished demographic, it doesn't seem unreasonable that an elite team would have several players that are as large as grown men when they are playing even if they were all 13-14 years old.

This is comical that you need to go through an entire justification for a club that is well known and openly admits to having a large majority of holdbacks. Not the kid's fault - blame the parents and the coaches who feel they need to do this and then justify it. No need to argue - it is the team's way and the rest of the clubs simply need to understand it is the coaches and the parents choice to teach their kids this mentality.

The claim is that to the extent there are holdbacks on the 2020 crabs team they meet the 5/1/2001 requirement for the warrior tournament and are thus just turning 14. To me that wouldn't be that big a deal. A lot of parents start boys with summer birthdays late. Is that actually the case or do they really have 15 year olds on their 2020 team?

Cut off of 5/1/2001 is a joke and not a true 2020 team. A kid born 5/15/2001 should be a 2019 player. This was done to accomadate someone or some team.

Actually there are many summer birthday kids who are legitimate 2020s in Maryland. 2019-2020 was the year there was a change in Maryland law with respect to school age that took effect the year the class of 2020 was to begin kindergarten. Some opted to send their kids and have them on the young side and some opted to give those who were not socially ready yet because they did not anticipate the change in age to have some more time and seemed to affect kids born the summer of 2001. Our team is not going to Denver but has 3-4 kids born in the summer of 2001 that did not do pre-1 and were never held back.

It will most likely be a mix of current rostered 2020s with a back fill of 2021s that meet the 5/1 date. No question they will send a team all age verified but the question is whether it is the team currently rostered for league play.

MIAA has a rule that you can't turn 19 prior to the start of school year and play sports. So any 2020 who is 15 would be sitting out his senior year of lax in the league that one would presume that most Crabs are interested in playing in. Not to say it has never happened or will never happen but the double holdback is largely a myth, unless you consider holdback and then PG. I'm sure a few that push the limit, meaning fall/winter '00 that are in 2020. I was 17 in fall of freshman college. Boy times have changed

That is a great point. For some reason the parental mindset is the kindergarten kids get a "pass" whereas a middle school holdbacks are labeled as cheaters.

It's crazy that you don't see a 5 yr old that still needs a nap at 2 , can't articulate, sit still for more than 3 minutes or separate from his mother the same as a kid that wants to play with younger kids in lacrosse. Really??? Yes, let's hold our 12 year old back now so that he can fit in with the younger kids. Craziness! If the kid is failing 8th grade- time would be better spent studying than playing sports.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Looney's Boys Lacrosse - 05/12/15 12:08 PM
USA Lax is a terrible organization. How they allow the disparity in age groups is unreal. Don't understand why they can't come out with some type of firm bylaws holding clubs, leagues and tournaments to firm birthdate that are enforced.

As a new parent to Lax, it seems as if the rules change per team / season. Kind of reminds me of young kids playing games, each changing the rules of the game as they go along to accommodate their respective strength and weaknesses. You don't see this in other sports!
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Looney's Boys Lacrosse - 05/12/15 04:36 PM
OMG this age crap is getting ridiculous. AAU basketball is far worse than lacrosse. Girls lacrosse has the same setup in terms of grade based and has for years. What is even considered a hold back in your eyes? Is a late spring/summer birthday going to prefirst a holdback? Or is it just if the kid repeats a grade sometime after he starts middle school? In 90% of the cases where a kid is older for his grade, it's because he went to prefirst. The older format of U-11 and U-13 had bigger age gaps than the current system. So it just sounds like your pissed because A. Little Johnny got spanked by Crabs or B. Little Johnny got cut from Crabs or C. All of the Above.

This is coming from a parent of three on age kids. This is the way the system is. If your child is a good player, they will be fine wherever they play. Wins and losses in these games mean absolutely nothing in terms of college coaches. They don't even pay attention to the scores. So what's your goal here? To have bragging rights because your son's team beat Crabs, or to have your son become a better player and play in college? Hopefully it's the latter which can be accomplished at many clubs.

It is about many things but given your text, you would miss the point. Let's just say, folks who manipulate the system for their own benefit (or in this case to make their little Johnny "bigger, better, stronger" or better than other kids in the appropriate grade) do not have the quality of true sportsmanship. AAU has strict age guidelines and the girls side of lacrosse does not have the same issues as boys. Girls have always been grade based. Boys have not been and one club in particular saw the change as an opportunity to manipulate the system. The kids who do not manipulate the system are put at a disadvantage in several ways
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Looney's Boys Lacrosse - 05/12/15 07:22 PM
You are incorrect on both AAU and girls lax. AAU is going all grade based as well. My son was in a 4th/5th grade tournament last weekend and there were kids that should have been in 7th grade but had repeated a grade twice.

Nearly as many girls go to prefirst as boys. While you don't have the girls transferring in 8th grade like the boys, you still have teams that have a lot of girls that are a year older than the rest.

Again, you single out Crabs with this. If you think that FCA, Breakers, etc don't have any of these kids you are mistaken. I agree, the parents are taking advantage of the system, but are you saying Crabs should turn them down and let them go play for FCA or Breakers?
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Looney's Boys Lacrosse - 05/12/15 10:12 PM
This is a misleading post. The Crabs encourage and promote holding back and have worked hard to insulate themselves from age appropriate competition. Any reasonable person would view this as manipulating the system, e.g. cheating. It is no different than steroids, videotape and underinflated balls, except USLacrosse is no NFL.

Only an unreasonable person believes that it is cheating to break a nonexisting rule. These teams play grade based and then find the biggest fastest most mature players that meet that criteria. Some of those players will be holdbacks. They then enter tournaments and schedule games against teams following those same (lack of) rules. What npyll or tournament rule have they violated? If there wasn't a rule against filming other teams or deflating balls than the patriots wouldn't have been in trouble. The teams the holdback teams play obviously don't have a problem with it or they would put in age limitations. Nobody who attends young gunz had any illusions about the age of the players in the AA division. Just because someone doesn't play by the rules that you wished existed doesn't make them a cheater. It may make them someone you don't want to play or associate with but that is your choice.

No, only a narcissistic, immature person would think you only do things if there is a clearly defined rule telling you to do it. There's no rule demanding people be kind, charitable, brave, caring, sympathetic, charitable, fair, etc. Mature adults can recognize right from wrong without having to consult a rule book. Shallow, weak individuals like yourself just search for the most convenient excuse to defend your selfish decisions. Always looking for the loophole that benefits you. All the excuses won't change the simple fact that every holdback just couldn't cut it at their own age level. That has to be a painful admission for both parents and kids alike. There just has to be a cringe of embarrassment every time he steps on the field. There goes my "winner". What a joke!!

Well said. These hold back apologists either don't get it or do but could care less. Holdback MIAA school kids along with Crabs and a few other clubs have been the driver of this youth grade based club system. Only a select group get to play down and that is mainly MIAA school holdbacks.

I think everyone thinks it is unfortunate that a child is held back for whatever reason. Some people are kind, charitable and sympathetic enough to feel for the child and their kids are brave enough to play against the holdbacks. Narcissistic immature people become jealous and angry and call the kids a
"Joke". Which are you?

Bingo- "The Crabs...have worked hard to insulate themselves [and their holdback competitive advantage] from age appropriate competition" Crabs are pushing this grade based competition over the easily verifiable age based standards USED BY EVERY OTHER SPORT AT THE YOUTH LEVEL!!

No reasonable person can defend this practice in this context.

"Honor the game" would be rostering kids that follow the spirit of the rules - not placing kids 1-2 years older on the field so they look better than the kids that are truly honoring the game. Holdbacks affect everybody not just little Johnny. Realizing that fact would "honor" the game.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Looney's Boys Lacrosse - 05/13/15 02:19 PM
I would just like more transparency on which kids are older and which are not. As a 2019 avg. size april birthday 2001 kid. Its hard to know if he is a avg. player or a great player playing with older kids. As a parent you have to know if you are setting your kid up for failure or not. Or wasting your money. Some parents do not look at there kids like they do no wrong on the field. But not knowing if they are playing in a game with 20, 15 and a half year old kids its hard to now where your kid stands skill wise.

previous poster was responding to troll that comes on here every so often and bashes Looney's for have great 2015 and 2016 teams and so-so teams afterwards. For better or worse club lax has replaced rec travel for most AA, A & B players. So now there's more than just a handful of clubs and the talent is spread out. Most clubs won't have elite teams at every each group. Looney's does at 2015,2016,2020. a few younger teams dong very well too

Hmmm. MIAA kids are priviledged because they get to repeat a grade and play for the Crabs. Better get rid of all of the structural inequities in Baltimore before all of the other lacrosse parents start looting the local Starbucks as protest.

Seriously, you guys need to realize life is good if a few holdbacks are all you need to worry about.

That is a pretty inaccurate statement, Hawks for one have a handful of coaches that don't have players on their teams. The fathers that are coaching include a list of coaches with college playing experience. I'm sure with some research, this is true with a lot of other clubs as well.

Correct the only Dad coaching for any Madlax team is the head guy has his sons on the U9 team. And they are studs. But I do agree most of the B and lower A clubs have lots of dads coaching.

Staffing will be key, need to minimize daddy ball. While there are lots of clubs the quality falls off pretty quickly once you get past the top 3-5. A lot of that is coaching or lack thereof.

They also have brand recognition, this isn't another pub club. Anyone who has played tournaments for the past few years knows who they are already.

not a rumor since they have something on their website and apparently had a tent at NCAA games at Navy. BTW - they have plenty of dads coaching the current teams. wonder where they'd set-up camp. Balto, annap, dc suburbs? not so easy to even find fields to rent with so many clubs, lax and soccer...

I would guess that Rock would be willing to join forces. Rock is excellent at the older ages. Rock was all set join with Madlax until Cabell sent that disgusting email to one of his former players and Rock realized who they would be dealing with.

I can see them setting up camp in Annapolis to work some of Brian Spallina's (#91) connections from when he was a Bayhawk. Or possibly in Howard County - I believe Brian has some family in Ellicott City.

Rough Riders would probably get hit the hardest if they set up in Howard County, but I really don't think they can come in and make an immediate impact, regardless of their reputation on Long Island.

don't see them hitting the Howard county area, they will set up shop in the Baltimore area. Pull players from the Looney's and FCA second teams and probably kids from Crabs who don't see much playing time. People will be attracted to the full program they offer your round.

Don't think they will be limited to pulling from second teams - many first team kids may be looking for a new home especially the younger set who are not quite high school age yet. Also depends on who they bring on to run the program locally and the recognition of that name and the coaches. Hopefully, there will be at least one coach per team who is not a daddy coach and who will be a professional coach especially for the kids approaching high school age. People do not want to pay club fees for daddy coaches or coaches that just moved over from Rec programs.

not sure loyola coach has much to do with wolfpack other than maybe coaching one of the older teams. Not sure Crawford Matthews have a great interest in club scene.

I predict that it will be tough sledding for a for-profit team like 91 to charge enough to make a profit and attract talented kids from other clubs. Balto is a fickle market...

Easy to say, but I'd love to hear what MD parents would say if LI teams all of a sudden added 8 kids to a roster that should be heading into HS or 10th. Why not stack the team with the biggest, oldest and toughest allowed- it's legal right? Who knows- there just might be enough crazies to join you and rock the boat! Can you imagine? Then let's see who cries foul.

I love the "MD Parents" part. For clarity the "MD Parents" who allow holdbacks are private school "MD Parents". The public school "MD Parents" do not. Your ignorance amuses me.

Example. "L.I. Parents" act like clowns and fools on the sidelines during games.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Looney's Boys Lacrosse - 06/11/15 11:12 AM
1. The number is nowhere close to 8

2. Some of the "new" kids were always 2020, but had been playing up last year

3. A handful of their 2019 kids decided to reclassify and they are now playing with kids in their grade

4. You are simply mad because, after losing to this team, some parents of rival MD clubs are trying to stir the pot, so now you have your "well, THAT'S why we lost" excuse


It's youth sports. It doesn't matter who wins a random tournament. All this ranting just makes you LI parents look like lunatics.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Looney's Boys Lacrosse - 06/11/15 12:07 PM
to the LI argument though, a 2020 player should be born between September 1, 2001 and August 31, 2002. Any players born before September 1, 2001 should be playing in the 2019 bracket regardless of graduating year, this should be their actual graduation year if they weren't left back, held back, or went to pre-first.

Kids in first through 8th should be playing against kids their own age, unless good enough to play up. Under no circumstance should kids be allowed to play down against kids younger than themselves.

Oh, and the argument of they play older kids in high school doesn't really hold up much either. Most schools have a freshman team, or a fresh/soph team along with JV and varsity.

Please stop this rational thinking! We need holdbacks for a select few parents and clubs. It just isnt fair that they would have to compete on a level playing field at the youth level Come on..Go Holdbacks

What is so magical about 9/1? The reality is that tournaments attract teams from all over and each school district or private school has its own policies. 9/1 is the worst possible cutoff date to pick if you want people to buy in to an age limitation because it attempts to mimic school class while while leaving out large numbers of kids who have never reclassed. I understand the [lacrosse]'s or World Series dates of 6/1 and 5/1 are not perfect but they stop the worst of the abuses while actually having hope of being accepted.

Posted By: Anonymous Re: Looney's Boys Lacrosse - 06/11/15 05:49 PM
the 9/1 cutoff is ideal kids to compete against kids their own age and in their own grade, it creates as level of a plying field as you can have. The only kids that would be affected by this (not playing with kids their age and grade) are the kids that were held back or went to pre-first.

Maybe where you live. By being myopic in your choice of dates you are eliminating any chance of of any real progress. Move the date three or four months and you get a chance of enough clubs and parents buying in to the rule to make it happen. The best example is the Crabs going to the World Series of Lacrosse which has a May cutoff.

What is progress??? Letting select group of children play down in youth athletics???? Not to most normal people. Youth sports is for youth athletics and a fair playing field...Not the chosen ones or the Crabs or whoever.
How about just change dates in youth lacrosse to May 1 for anyone that wants to play. Then you are doing the right thing.
Letting select parents and children get an advantage goes against just about everything you ever hear in youth sports.

Please - the team has more than 8 holdbacks. Regardless of when the "new" players decided to hold back - they are still hold backs. The newly graduated 8th graders should have at least waited until after the current 7th graders graduated from non-private schools. With respect to #4, all I have read is that the opposite is true - all of the teams they tied or had close games with are pretty proud of themselves for playing kids 1-2 years older and being more than competitive. Keep trying to convince others but Baltimore is a small world and everybody knows the kids and their history. Interesting will be how many of the Beach Lax 2020 Crabs kids can go to Denver.

In this case, the LI dads associated with Crush do have something to complain about. As a Marylander who watched that game the Crabs stacked their team. Everyone from Maryland knew it as these kids are all known in the area. No fan of Crush and some of their player;s behavior this weekend, but they would have won that game if they had been playing kids their own age and deserved the Championship.Crabs would not have gotten to the Championship with their regular 2020 team.

How is that eliminating progress? Going by the school birthday cutoff you are ensuring kids are only competing against their piers, rather than kids playing down and creating an unfair and unsafe atmosphere for the kids on the field. This also allows more kids the opportunity to play on some more select club teams

No worries we will bring our "I promise to pg kids" onto our teams and match you age for age. You can be a lunatic then too.

What I do not get- kids all over the US are fighting hard to get spots and be brought up to JV in MS or Varsity as a freshman and the prestige is being able to play with the older kids. Who told you that playing 1-2 years below your grade was prestigious? Great- it will get you looks, maybe a spot on the bench- but when a coach is recruiting- do you not think they are going to be looking at the kids that can play with the older ones, rather than run with the young ones? Eventually all kids catch up- and grow a beard. Won't it be sad for the big 8th grader that reclassed to find that he is among a group of men 2-3 years later and no longer a stand out. He got a spot, but will that coach still want him? I'd be wary. No crazies over here- staying within your grade sounds a lot more sane than crazy which would be taking that gamble. GL to all these kids because in the end- no one cares if your 8th, 9th, 10th grade team wins- they are looking at individuals, with skill, perseverance, determination, heart and soul. It will not matter if you reclassed or not- if you have the skill, they will want you, even if they offered someone an earlier spot.

If you don't think a college recruiter is going to look favorably on whoever looks impressive for his grade - regardless of his birthday - you are really trying to convince yourself of some alternate reality.

9/1 isn't the cutoff everywhere. When you try to make up a rule nationally that only makes sense where you live than the rule loses its legitimacy. If you use the [lacrosse]'s or World Series date than enough momentum can be developed to actually get something done. One reason the 9/1 date hasn't worked is that too many boys get pushed up unnecessarily.

This discussion is not about winning or losing - it is about doing what is right for all the kids, the sport and teaching our kids to be good sports but would not expect a holdback/win at all costs supporter to understand that. Your win is empty - playing kids younger and much smaller than you just means you are bigger and older - not a winner.

Or you could go with US Soccer August 1-July 31. This still allows the majority of the kids to play with others in their grade.

My kid already plays up, it's good for him. I'm more concerned about the kid choosing not to play up because they weigh 85 pounds and now are being attacked by a 140 lb kid on the field because they chose to play down. Once kids get to HS age- all bets off- you want to play varsity- go for it- you feel you aren't ready- there's JV or pick another sport.

Actually it is a great idea. But I doubt anyone has courage to do it. If I was more tech savvy..I would start a website addressing this issue with a signature and USL# to petition the USL to try to do something. Not sure what USL can do or even if they are interested in actually going after this issue. This is a Northeast problem that will only get worst and spread as time goes along.

How dare those 12-13 year old kids from Looney's go out to a beautiful part of the country, probably enjoy beautiful weather, probably go white water rafting, have a little vacation time while playing a handful of lacrosse games against whoever they were lined up against and actually win games. How silly are they? Don't they understand at that age they should be in the heat and humidity of Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania or New [lacrosse] going through the driving and parking grind, sweating it out like the rest of us so that they can attend the college of their choice and then read ridiculous comments about their performance in an "approved tournament" from a bunch of tired, frustrated old men. When will these kids ever learn what the game of lacrosse is all about. They should be ashamed of themselves.

2020 beat the FCA national team, still a good experience for the kids!

WOW FCA National team, 6 kids from Carroll County and the rest Metro Baltimore.....very NATIONAL


How dare those 12-13 year old kids from Looney's go out to a beautiful part of the country, probably enjoy beautiful weather, probably go white water rafting, have a little vacation time while playing a handful of lacrosse games against whoever they were lined up against and actually win games. How silly are they? Don't they understand at that age they should be in the heat and humidity of Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania or New [lacrosse] going through the driving and parking grind, sweating it out like the rest of us so that they can attend the college of their choice and then read ridiculous comments about their performance in an "approved tournament" from a bunch of tired, frustrated old men. When will these kids ever learn what the game of lacrosse is all about. They should be ashamed of themselves.

Nice try coach. Next

I live in Anne Arundel County, have nothing to do with Looney's and I wrote the post, I just find it ridiculous that grown men would come out and just bash kids and a program because they didn't to a tournament that in your mind is not worthy. People that make comments like these are what is ruining this game. Why can't kids enjoy an experience, if you had ever been to Vail, you know this is part of the whole package. There was a time when it was the only premier tournament. I understand that times change and everything has to be bigger, faster, stronger. People with comments that are constantly bashing children and adults alike are ruining the greatest game on two feet.

So he is dual rostered AND meets the generally accepted U13 age guidelines for a 7th grader? If he meets the guidelines of age and grade then good for him (and FCA), but most on this board who know of him, believe him to be older than most true 7th graders as well as the situation with several (not all) of the 2019 players that are brought down for special occasions.

4 of the players on FCA 2019, the team that has wins (and losses) vs Madlax and 91 Orange and wins against LI Express N and Laxachusetts this year, are on-age rising 8th graders. These kids play and contribute significantly in every game. How many other good 2019 teams have kids playing up on them?

The goalie is(was) a true 7th grader. He will be entering 8th grade on age this fall. I agree that there a numerous holdbacks all over, this particular boy is not one of them however.

that is what guidelines are for, to determine the proper age group kids with. you don't have to agree with them, but they are there for a reason. the kid is a great 2019 goalie, where he should be playing, and even better as a 2020!

So now we've gotten to the point that if a 7th grader is 13 this summer(as most 7th graders are) that is not acceptable either? Maybe we should break the year down into quarters and you can only let little Timmy play against kids born in the same 3 month span as he was. Good grief.

VLC apparently has several 7th graders playing up, they are a very, very good team(ask them, they won the Richmond Rumble). Due to the proliferation of 7th graders, they chose to play down during the NPYLL season. They(supposedly)are opting to play one tournament in the A division. Look out for the Baby Blue Crabs

FCA, a Christian organization, should lead be example. In their mission statement they state that integrity is part of their mission and vision. How does playing kids down support their mission and vision...unless their mission is to be crablike!

This amazing team only beat the Madlax 2019 Blue team. Which is the second team by 1 goal this last weekend. And if the storm had not come they would of played the next day for the championship on sunday. And they only Beat FreedomLax by one goal. You can take that for what its worth. Point being they scare no one unless they are playing in the B div.

FCA is fielding teams that are grade-based. The goalie just completed 7th grade making him a 2020 graduate. He has been playing on the 2019 team. He does sometimes play for in tournaments with the 2020 team. Exactly how is this in any way against any rules?

what grade does a late an August/2001 birthday go to...

just because parents opt to keep a late school year birthday child back a grade or go to pr-first doesn't mean they should also play sports with kids younger than them!

graduation year doesn't necessarily account for the actual age of a child. the private schools offer pre-first which allows a child to start school a year later and the private schools also allow children to stay back a grade. so, a 2020 graduate could be 18 months older than their peers if they attended private schools and took advantage of pre-first and opted to stay back/repeat a grade.

The reality is the cutoff date varies by state and individual schools. One of the biggest obstacles to improving the holdback issue are the 9/1 date purists who insist on a date that isn't inclusive of a lot of schools and a lot of families. If us lacrosse went with a grade based model with a 6/1 or 5/1 limit there would be much more buy in from families and clubs. With a pure age system there will be enough clubs opting out into grade based tournaments that there won't be any real improvement.

can't have a grade based model with a 5/1 or 6/1 limit, those kids would be in a grade above the others.

Depends on where they started school. For example, there are quite a few kids born in the summer of 2001 that are going into 8th grade (for the first time) and have never held back. Same for other grad years - the 5/1 or 6/1 cut off date would allow these kids but would filter out the hold backs. It level sets the grade based model without letting clubs manipulate the system because there is an age based requirement too. USLax proposal of going age based by one year increments is not going to garner much support as the grade based train has left the station but many grade based supporters would get on board if they suggest the grade with an age element.

I agree- I'd leave it 6/1 as three months is plenty of time for late starters but would keep the philosophy of grade based with the exception of NY. You'd absolutely have a mixed team as they have a 12/1 cut off- so you could feasibly have a 50/50 split of two grades. People would have to be okay with that as the age limit is what is static. In the end, I wish there would be a system like hockey- they don't care about your grade, just your age and many kids don't play with their friends from school, but isn't that what travel is all about? It's too ambitious of a model right now for lacrosse anyway. We probably won't even garner enough support for any cut off with the way things are right now. Seems like a 16 year old could play with 2021 and someone would find a reason why that is acceptable.

I agree- I'd leave it 6/1 as three months is plenty of time for late starters but would keep the philosophy of grade based with the exception of NY. You'd absolutely have a mixed team as they have a 12/1 cut off- so you could feasibly have a 50/50 split of two grades. People would have to be okay with that as the age limit is what is static. In the end, I wish there would be a system like hockey- they don't care about your grade, just your age and many kids don't play with their friends from school, but isn't that what travel is all about? It's too ambitious of a model right now for lacrosse anyway. We probably won't even garner enough support for any cut off with the way things are right now. Seems like a 16 year old could play with 2021 and someone would find a reason why that is acceptable. [/quote]
You might be pushing it with a 16 year old at 2021. I think we should go after any model that has a kid 18 months older then the youngest kid who is on age. If anyone has ever taken a picture of their kid on the first day of 6th grade and the last day of 8th grade should know that 18 month during this time frame is just nuts. Would you want your 6th grade son playing his 8th grade self in theory? This only makes sense to people with kids 8th grade and older. But this is the first battle we must fight, it must be no worse then 13 months of a age gap for middle school kids. No questions asked. The anger comes from people seeing 3 to 10 kids per team being 18 months older then the youngest kid on age for the grade. As an example this is why they have Freshman football teams. They are as a whole so much smaller in mind and body compared to the sophomores through seniors. I agree playing the bigger and older kids makes the younger ones better, but its still not fair. So it comes down to are youth sports fair or are they like real life and not fair?

Agree 100% with the age recommendation along with grade. Winning and losing is a good lesson in life and there will always be those who cheat but this is a safety issue especially in middle school where the size discrepancy exists. Have seen too many injuries when the older kids play younger kids.

I agree with everything you said except that a summer of 2001 birthday who is going into 8th grade was certainly held back, they were just held back before they started school.

Not necessarily. Depends on the state they started school. US guidelines run anywhere from July to December for school entry requirements so if the plan is to account for different states entry requirements and keep teams grade level, then the date needs to be at least June 1.

Majority yes, but not all. The goal is to gain support from a broad group to get behind a grad year/age restriction combination. That will never happen if it is not flexible enough to consider likely scenarios of summer birthdays who are legitimately not holdbacks.

As long as it says Grade ? must be from Date 1/01/?? to Date 12/31/?? There will always be someone mad.

your broad group will come from the majority of kids with birthdays between 9/1/?? - 8/31/??. This is the majority of school cutoffs, why change it to accommodate a few states?

Both of my kids have Sept birthdays and I had both of them do an extra year of kindergarten. Does that mean that we are cheating the system because they are both on the old side for their grade? I had no idea that they would play sports once they were older. Contrast that with the boy that repeats 8th grade for lacrosse only (regardless of what his parents say). To me, those scenarios are completely different.

If they are a year older it means they are a year bigger and stronger and should be playing with kids their own age. Nobody is questioning your decision as a parent but they should not play sports with kids a full year younger - for the majority of the folks on these boards it is a safety issue especially in middle school.

both scenarios are different, however, none of the kids should be eligible to play in grade base leagues since they are older than the rest of the kids.

If your kids are September birthday, what is the cutoff for school in your area? in Maryland a September birthday would make the child on the older side. A child born in September in MD and repeating kindergarten would in instances be almost two years older than the younger kids in their grade

Point being they scare no one unless they are playing in the B div.

You're right - Madlax Blue does suck, VLC definitely should have beaten them by 10. VLC is also playing in the A division at Younggunz, but Bmore haven't updated the website. But who cares? Either way, it'll be fun to watch Madlax get pounded on by all the "real" teams at that tourney...hahaha - grab the popcorn!

so your kids were 7 when they did their 2nd kindergarten year?
if your school district has the typical sept 1 cut-off they would have been old for their grade w/o repeat. Or you in a dec cutoff like in NY where they would be young the first time around? If the former, what was the rationale at the time?

I'd hope not - my son's two best friends are in the exact same situation with end of Aug birthdays and they are all going into 8th grade. No one was held back - their parents took the advice of school officials that boys mature more slowly, so they started them in school for the 2020 grad year way back when. Just so happens that one of them is 6' and one is 5'3" - both are excellent lacrosse players, and "old" for their grade. My son, who is young for his grade (almost a year younger than his buddies) happens to be 5'11" and 160 lbs and is also a very good lacrosse player - I'm certain people see him standing next to their 5'1" son and think "no way he's 13" - he is, though. Fact is, kids grow and mature at different paces and age is simply one factor - my son played up on JV this past winter, and was bigger than many kids out there, and also smaller, and he held his own very well. Bottom line is, you should and do what the leagues dictate - if that happens to be grad year, it's grad year - no one should cry about it, it is what it is. If it's age based play, then ages should be checked and it should be regulated, and the cheaters should forfeit. You can't have it both ways though - either it's 2020 or U13, not both.

Both of my kids have Sept birthdays and I had both of them do an extra year of kindergarten. Does that mean that we are cheating the system because they are both on the old side for their grade? I had no idea that they would play sports once they were older. Contrast that with the boy that repeats 8th grade for lacrosse only (regardless of what his parents say). To me, those scenarios are completely different.


so your kids were 7 when they did their 2nd kindergarten year?

Most states have sept 1 cutoffs for entering kindergarten including here in MD. They would be in proper grade here. Not a holdback.

Might want to look at your own uneducated comment. Pretty easy to follow. NY kid is on age with most of country starting in Sept late, MD bigtime older. Nothing to do with public or private?? Everyone knows that the holdback/reclassify/pre-first thing in MD is a private school thing.

That is the problem with lacrosse, all this cheating has been going on for years. So long, it has become common practice for the established lax communities. Now that lacrosse has seen significant growth, the dirty little secrets are being exposed, and aren't accepted in most areas outside of the established communities.

Until lacrosse fixes this, they will not become a major youth sport outside of the mid Atlantic and northeast.

Why would you even have an invite only for a single A tournament?

How prestigious can it be to be asked to play in a tournament's lower division? "Can you please come to our tournament to prove you are the 20th best team?"

that is the issue with Lacrosse, it has become accepted to allow kids to play down in skill level and age. Top team players shouldn't be FILLING out the roster of the second team for tournaments, and kids shouldn't be allowed to play down in age. These practices have become the norm in lacrosse, and need to be addressed by US Lax if they want to grow the sport more.

While this is not breaking any rules, it is just getting to the point that families are becoming very frustrated with youth lacrosse. Something has to be done, or the sport will implode and leave a few standing clubs and go back to being a sport of the privileged. I agree it is not a terrible thing to have guest players from within your club, that are on age, help fill out a roster. That said, when other clubs, teams enter a bracket, they choose carefully, knowing their team's skill level. Families pay a lot for these experiences, and many make huge sacrifices for their family so that their kid(s) can play in these tournaments. It is just frustrating for teams to go to a tournament to find themselves up against better ranked kids, clubs or older players. So, no, the rules were not broken, and this is an acceptable practice, among certain circumstances, it is disheartening to the opposing clubs and teams when their shot at solid competition is suddenly changed, beyond anything in their control. That is why USL needs to step it up fast, along with tournament directors, way too much fluidity between kids switching rosters, age groups etc. It is hurting the sport and the desire for families to have their kids join.

It is without a doubt wrong, unless they were playing at the highest level of competition in the tournament. Adding players so you have enough on your roster is one thing, playing down with half of your starting line up is totally different.

I saw them play as well. If that was a "stacked" team with half the starting line being AA players, they sure didn't play like it. None of the players looked close to the same skill level as the other AA teams in the tourney. Perhaps those players were actually playing where they belong this weekend? FCA would do well to be more selective in tryouts next round if they want to complete with the likes of Crabs, Team 91, etc.

I find that hard to believe - the goalie was average at best, and their middies and attack could barely complete two passes in a row. Plus, the entire team was minuscule - are you sure you don't mean they brought players UP from 2021 single A?

Agreed. I don't love the filling out the roster with higher ranked kids, but please, we are back to singling out a kid. The kids read this and comments as such are hurtful, especially to a goalie, as it is such a mental position. Kids have ups and downs, good and bad days, no need to bash them on a public forum. For the record- I am not the goalies dad or mom.

Players definitely have bad games, these players had four of them in a row this weekend - they really aren't exceptional. I don't think anyone is being mean or trying to single anyone out, it's just simply that they are average - not a bad thing, just nothing to jump up and down about.

This is the type of information this board was built on. So if your kid is a FCA 2020 and is on the bottom of the roster please do yourself a favor and find a new team to tryout for along with FCA so you are prepared for the best 5 players from another team showing up at tryouts.

doubt it, Looney's just got their mojo back. they won three tournaments...summer exposure, Vail, Young Guns.

What tournaments has FCA 2020AA won this year?


Looneys didn't play in Summer Exposure. And Vail was a joke of a tournament.


And Young Guns may be the toughest tournament this year, so there goes that argument.


it would have been if Crush and Crabs were there.

Or maybe the ones forced to play single A as double A players in Young Guns on the other side if the field from kids they go to school with. Will be interesting to see how T91 Maryland handles the holdback situation. Will they adopt the Long Island way and allow none or will they fold to,the Maryland pressure?

What is the practice schedule? Have not seen much info released.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Looney's Boys Lacrosse - 07/06/15 11:56 PM
Team 91 keeps everything a secret. Not confirmed but 5 day a week along with other meetings, etc is supposedly required. They have conveniently left all of that off of their emails and website. No idea of cost either. On LI the summer fee is ~$1900 which doesn't include helmet. You get to buy it at a "discount".

Long Island has holdbacks, they just didn't come up with the idea so they don't like to talk about it.

What did crabs 2020 add to the trophy case this past summer aside from their pride? Regardless of what happened during myla or npyll Looney's were the only team to win anything worth bragging about!

Looney's tournament team is unbeaten in the ms area, and lost one game to 91 by ONE goal.

Those kids are 2020 kids because they reclassed. Hate the system if you want, but they are on the 2020 team and that team will roll the Looney's this year.

And you might want to get off your soapbox. So many of the Looney's kids are reclassed kids.

With their full team. I understand the reclassifying thing; however, why would you come on here and brag that "with their full team". You should say, "with the kids that are reclassifying" you beat team 91. "we realize that we can't beat them with our on age kids"... If the team 91 2019's reclassified, we couldn't beat them"....

If all states started reclassifying, your (Crabs) program would be just run of the mill.

I played basketball growing up. A true test of your ability was always about playing on age or up. The parents in this sport are a bunch of f*&king wimps, and that's what you are raising as well!!!

Good luck to you all.

Crabs also got crushed by Team 91 on national television when they played age appropriately. Nothing special when they do not manipulate the system. And your memory of Beach Lax is a bit sketchy. Those kids were still rostered on 2019 Crabs and played tournaments as 2019 after the Beach Lax cheat. They only became 2020 in their own minds and that of their parents when they actually step foot in a 2020 classroom. Your soapbox is seriously cracked.

The players added do not seem the same caliber as the ones that were already on the team - where did the players they replaced go? Heard of two defenseman who were leaving because they do not get much action because of the Flogo. A risk of bringing a fogo in for youth lacrosse on good teams- the team does win but the field players get bored.

What tournament did Looneys 2020 win this summer that Crabs also participated in? Winning Lax Splash and winning Young Guns when Crabs and 91 were in Denver doesn't mean anything. You played Roughriders in the semis for god sakes at young guns.

Didn't Crabs beat Looneys when they played this spring? Without any 2019s playing down

they did beat them in the fall 2014, which is part of the 2014/2015 teams. Looney's also beat Legacy TAZ and LI Express Terps.

Fall is just as meaningless as summer. Some kids are out on vacation. Guest players are everywhere. Fields and refs can be terrible at most tournaments. Spring leagues are really the only true measure.

Looney's 2015 = excellent

2016 = great

2017 = awful. One of the worst in the area.

And it gets worse. That club is about to fold.

It's obvious you are the same person posting over and over about how bad the 2017 team was. Why do you care so much and what purpose do you have to bash a team that apparently doesn't exist anymore? The guys who run Looney's know there are a couple of lost grads years due to the emergence of FCA. 2020s are as strong as any area club. 23s & 24s strong for just starting out. Not all clubs have world dominance as a mission. Like most other clubs some grad years will be strong, some weak & others in the middle.

Here is the deal. All you people, especially you modern day lacrosse guys that scream daddy ball, lets define that better. There is nothing wrong with daddy coaching as long his son is either really good or the coach has an honest evaluation of their son and plays it appropriately. Most of the people I hear scream we don't hire dads is for one reason only. They don't have kids yet!! Its the 20/30 yr olds that have this disillusioned idea that lacrosse is some special sport where you had to play D 1 to coach. Get over yourself. Most you D 1 gusy suck at coaching.

A lot of Crabs coaches have sons that play for Crabs. For the most part though, they don't have the parents coaching the team their son plays for. Looney's could do the same, but I believe that almost every team is coached by the father of a player on the team. And no dad has an honest evaluation of their son.

Not doubt coaching your kid is difficult. Some are better than others at being realistic about their kid's abilities and managing kid/coach/parent dynamic. Personally I see many dad coaches at Looney's and other programs in the area that have prerequisite experience, passion for teaching kids & dedication while appropriately coaching their son.

The kids who play for Looney's are not going to drive over an hour to attend Madlax MD practices, let alone play for a terrible B team.

There are plenty of strong, stable clubs in that area. Do you really think any of them would come down to play on that team? LOL.

Same clown that always wants to talk about how good 2015, 2016 were and bad 17/18 are. If Looney's about to fold why would they have 4 middle school teams and 5 elementary teams? They may not all be "elite" but kids have fun and learn the game.

Calvert Hall coach started FCA. Some of his buddies were coaching green turtle or looneys. They went with him to FCA and kids followed. Certain age groups never recovered for GT and Looneys. When kids get to HS club lax tournaments become very expensive. If a kid is not playing in college it's hard to justify. And some pretty decent players get cut from MIAA teams. So the the pool of kids dwindles

How can you say a club that shuts down it's rising Junior and Sophomore team is growing?

The 2016 team was a good one, but not the best in the country. No way.

And Crabs 2020 is better than Looney's, especially since several Looney's players left to play for the Crabs.

The formation of FCA decimated Looneys and Green Turtle. Much like the formation of 91 decimated Breakers at some ages. If you don't live in Baltimore (or play for Crabs), you would not know this. Both Looneys and Green Turtle are still trying to recover and are focusing their efforts on their younger teams. The addition of Koopers and now 91 has meaningfully diluted the talent pool further (and is ruining MYLA) in Baltimore. It is unlikely that you will ever see one program dominate across the board in Baltimore. Going forward, programs will have pockets of strength, and pockets of weakness.

I am sure the Looney's 2020 team is the best. But in joy it for one more year. Because all your players will be leaving for the Crabs and FCA so they can go to the top tournaments and be seen by the best schools.

Well lets home the top tournaments run by the NLF and Big 4 and 3D let your 2020 team play in there tournaments. I might be wrong but I do not see a single Looneys team in any of these top 5 fall high school tournaments. You know the ones with all the D1 coaches sitting on the sidelines.

They are good, but they aren't in all of the top tourneys - you already know that if you're a Looney's parent though. It's also ironic that you're telling everyone to find another hobby besides discussing boys' lacrosse but you're doing so while discussing boys' lacrosse on a lacrosse forum. Don't you think?

"Top team" and "best team in MD" are two different things entirely. They are definitely one of the better MD teams. They are absolutely NOT the "best team in MD". And currently, a lot of their play does hinge on the FOGO - there is a big difference between 4th grade and 8th grade.

Yes but if any of those teams had that FloGo we'd be talking about them not Looney's - it all hinges on one player.


They have been a top team since 4th grade with and without their fogo.


"Top team" and "best team in MD" are two different things entirely. They are definitely one of the better MD teams. They are absolutely NOT the "best team in MD". And currently, a lot of their play does hinge on the FOGO - there is a big difference between 4th grade and 8th grade.


Who is the best? Crabs? The one Looney's beat in the fall and the one that was in Denver getting CRUSHED while Looney's won their Young Guns tournament? Please.

Well lets home the top tournaments run by the NLF and Big 4 and 3D let your 2020 team play in there tournaments. I might be wrong but I do not see a single Looneys team in any of these top 5 fall high school tournaments. You know the ones with all the D1 coaches sitting on the sidelines.


Haha, yes man, we am the best, we is Crabz and like my kid I can spell real awesome with my sweat flow and use real good grammar 'cause we go to there tournament so their we told you.

Count on Looney's parents for always being drunk on the sidelines.

Never had issues with Looneys parents, nor FCA, Breakers or Hawks. The only parents that I ever thought were obnoxious were LTRC (rec team) and Crabs. Crabs, supposedly the self appointed MD team were truly classless and didn't respect the game or other games their kids weren't in. LTRC parents tend to all ref and coach from the sidelines, more than any other clubs.

Before I get the crab parent saying "sorry your son got cut from crabs"...he didn't. He was invited and chose to stay with his current team, one that beats crabs!

We have been a part of three of the better clubs out there and they have all been great experiences. No blame for behavior should be associated to the clubs, but to the individuals that choose to act a fool! It is all fun! Enjoy it while you can! It will be over before you know it! It's a kids game!

"Top team" and "best team in MD" are two different things entirely. They are definitely one of the better MD teams. They are absolutely NOT the "best team in MD". And currently, a lot of their play does hinge on the FOGO - there is a big difference between 4th grade and 8th grade. [/quote]

No doubt. Crabs kids were in the 6th grade when Hawks, FCA, Looneys, etc. kids were in 4th grade. Will be interesting to see how the reclassified players affect this landscape.

1. You are an idiot for trying to incite people with a suggestion that everyone on the Crabs is two grades older than their counterparts.

2. There are tons of holdbacks on other teams, especially FCA.

3. Do the Looney's even field teams anymore? It seems like they fold more teams than they assemble.

To try to pretend the Crabs 2020 team is not going to be full of Holdbacks is absurd. That is how Fat Crab daddy rolls - he knows it, you know it, everyone that plays him knows it. If your kid can't compete with kids his own age hold him back so he can beat up on younger kids. It's the Crabs way - bigger, stronger, faster, older. Sad but true.

Two of the weakest, most tired arguments on this forum. To think crabs has the market cornered on hold backs is absurd. The double hold back is largely of myth. You can't be 19 before your senior yr and play in the MIAA. Anyone aware of players who had to sit out their senior year? Much of this discussion has been centered around 2020. If your kid is on AA or even A club team they must have some ambition to play high level high school. As an AA 8th grader they should be capable of playing against older kids. Plus if it was still age based it would u15 and all your prefirst and reclassers would still be eligible.

And Crab Dad - not every AA player plays or wants to play for Crabs. Just cause your kid's on the team doesn't mean he's destined for greatness. There are many justified criticisms of the Crabs and not just by the parents of kids who didn't the team

Top 8th grade players can play against kids older than them, however, that does not mean they should be consistently playing against kids older than them. Leave younger kids playing against older kids for high school, club programs should not be run like high school programs!

Lot of what you say is fine...But the most important thing is that playing down in age is wrong at the youth level. Plain and simple....Why the need to have this structure of letting kids that have been heldback/reclass/prefirst play down in YOUTH lacrosse.. They can get their advantage in High School where the ages are all over the place. Spin in any way you want but the values and ethics of playing down in Youth lacrosse goes against all the true spirit of youth athletics.

My question to you would be, if kids are AA and should be capable of playing older kids, why the heck are you promoting holding kids back to play younger kids?!?! Let everyone play older kids including the kids that reclass. They want to repeat a grade- no problem- but play on age or up and play older, not younger.

My question to you would be, if kids are AA and should be capable of playing older kids, why the heck are you promoting holding kids back to play younger kids?!?! Let everyone play older kids including the kids that reclass. They want to repeat a grade- no problem- but play on age or up and play older, not younger.


My comments are not to promote or defend hold backs. My boys are public school so no hold back option. I believe single year age groups like soccer would best until 8th grade, then just U15. But I think grade based is better for youth than 2 year age based since the vast majority of those kids are summer birthdays. There are some legitimate reasons for kids to enter school late. Should those kids not be allowed to play lacrosse in 8th grade?

My kid also plays ice hockey and I like the model- so to answer your question- yes- the holdbacks, late starters etc should not be playing 8th grade lax. You can still go single year, but base it on the year kids are born- period. It's nice and easy in other sports. I'm not sure why lacrosse is all over the map. If you ask me, it takes away the legitimacy of the sport to have such "fluffy" rules in regards to rosters.

I also like the hockey model, but you really only see the teams stick to the one year model in tier 1. Double "A" teams and down are every other year ( bantam would be 2002 and 2001) etc.

I personally like the soccer model of every year from September 1 - August 31 the following year. This would keep kids grouped together with their school piers and keep it close to the graduation year model.

I like the 9/1 cutoff, but think it should be flexible for those kids that really were not ready for kindergarten with a birthdate just before 9/1. I let the kids in that were legitimately in the grade (not just playing down) and had a birthday in July or August as well. - this is what they did in Denver - right?

You guys don't have older kids so you lack perspective. All of these proposed changes have been used and tried before. Like it or not, grade based teams are here because coaches want to compare kids of the same grade - even youth teams.

You can keep moaning about it, but it is a waste of time.

This is spot on - unfortunately, regardless of age, coaches want to see which kids are coming up in specific grades - especially in HS. With the recruiting process starting so much earlier nowadays (8th grade, sometimes even earlier), grade based teams are essential because when coaches look at the team, they want to know they are recruiting 2020, 2019, etc. class boys - doesn't do them any good if the team has 2 or 3 grades mixed together. Unfortunately, that is exactly what fuels the reclasses, but there is nothing that can be done about that unless the schools themselves make rules to disallow that.

I agree and we should be pushing for the people to do it at K. or 1st. that way you are prepared for the kids you will play. Nothing worse then thinking you have a spot and a kid changes grades and pushes your kid down a spot in 9th grade.

As long as the pinnacle of the sport is college, everything will be done to prepare for those 4 years of eligibility.

You got that right...Coaches want to see my third grader not the true third grade age kids...I am going to throw a tantrum if my prefirst isnt allowed to play down in third grade. It isnt fair to him or his recruiters....Dave Pietramala told me my third grader had some potential and he was glad he knew he was in third grade, Petro said he could care less about my son being a fourth garde age kid...Petro says its ok ...I say its ok...and all cheaters say it is ok...

Its cheating at the youth level..High School has always been grade..no one is arguing that...Youth sports was meant to be age base due to ethics, fairplay, morals, etc...But adults like you have helped take lacrosse down a less than ethical path...

I would like to go a step futher. Why cant we play our child on whatever age team, oops I mean grade base team we want. Then we can just put him in that grade to match. That seems like a fair way to even it out for everyone. We all get the same advantage as the kids that cant make it now playing against their on age

You're completely insane, and have totally missed my point, so let me try and put it into terminology that a simple mind can understand, hopefully. I said that I don't agree with the reclasses, but it is unfortunately something that is unavoidable unless the schools stop accepting them. Saying "adults like you have helped take lacrosse down a less than ethical path" is simply ignorant and incorrect - I don't believe in playing down, or holdbacks for sports reasons, and would never do so for my son. In fact, my son is a young 13 year old 8th grader, and is currently playing up and actually starting every game on his HS JV team in their fall league (and they are undefeated), so don't make foolish uninformed statements. With that said, unfortunately I don't make the rules, and neither do you. "Youth sports was meant to be age base due to ethics, fairplay, morals, etc" is simply your opinion - "meant to be" is an asinine thing to say - according to who? The fact is, there are U based teams which are age based, and there are grade based teams which are grade (and not age) based. If you don't like it, or your son can't handle it, don't play. My son has chosen to play grade based and play up, and has excelled, and is right there talent wise with a bunch of much older kids and is getting better at lacrosse because of it. Everyone needs to make their own choices.

No I get the point as many others do. You can sum up your long novel in two sentences.
My son is superman the JV starter and plays up so what is the big deal. YOUTH sports is about winning at any cost....... Once again people like you are the reason that youth lacrosse has no moral balance now. You cant even comprehend that simple concept..

Good point - I'm doing exactly what you're wishing for which is that I won't hold my kid back, and also playing him up a grade, and that makes me completely unethical and immoral. Very simple concept to understand, I must be a complete moron to have missed that. Thanks for the clarification.

No problem clarifying it. Maybe you are a complete moron, but I doubt it. The whole grade based format taking over YOUTH lacrosse is not about your superman son, but somehow you think it is?? JV and HS teams are grade base and always have been and will continue to be. And because a few college coaches recruit in 8th grade we need to change the entire way youth lacrosse is run?? Are you actually that easy to sway? There are over 400,000 thousand CHILDREN playing YOUTH lacrosse today...So for your superman son and a few hundred more we need to change the entire format. Yea ..you get it..

First of all, let's get off of the superman thing. My son also has 2 8th grade teammates who are doing the same thing he is, so he is certainly not a "superman" as you say - he just happens to be a talented lacrosse player, as are many other kids on his team. Second, I'm not telling anyone to change a format - you are. The format is, there are grade based and age based teams, tourneys, and leagues, with elite club teams generally being grade based down to 2024 and lower. That is simply the way it is, and until US Lacrosse or whatever governing body changes it, that is what everyone has to live with. Most (if not all) rec formats are still U (age) based, and I don't see that changing anytime soon, so there is a venue for age based lacrosse. It just so happens that the higher end tourneys and teams are grade based, but it has been like that for quite a long time actually. Youth lacrosse has not changed the way it has been run, it's just that the club and tournament circuits have taken over rec and such, therefore the youth grade based teams/clubs are more visible and get more recognition than the age based teams. Bottom line is, I'll roll with the punches, and as long as my son wants to keep playing, he'll do so in whatever format is required. You cannot say it's cheating if there is no rule violation - you may not like it, but as long as players are playing in the appropriate category (meeting the age requirement for U based teams/tourneys and playing with their actual grade in grade based), there is no cheating going on.

So what is your stance on the 8th grader who decides to reclass at the last sec. and plays for a 2020 team when he is still 2019? Or his parents say we plan to reclass him next year so lets just have him play with the grade below this year?

There are so many ways to game the system, it's a joke. If rules against playing by birthdate aren't going to be imposed, then everything is ok on the reclass front. You can hold your kid back in first grade, start him late, reclass in 8th grade or say that you'll reclass your kid at a later date and play down. There is only one single reason to do any of this and that's to give your kid an advantage by playing against mostly younger kids.

Are you the same parent that plays his kid up but gets upset if a kid checks him and blows him up because he does not have the testosterone of the older kids yet? Then you run out on the field and yell that the game is unfair? I can see it now.

That only happens in the summer, when school is over. It is perfectly fine for a team to have someone like that because he is now part of that grade.

Stop whining and grow a pair.

Well reclass effects every club in this area. And maybe the reclass issue played a part in the Looneys lack of success at the 2017 and 2018 group.

My stance is that I don't agree with it at all - he will play a team this weekend that has 4 reclasses on it, and I guess we'll see how that plays out. Unfortunately, I can't do anything about it...

No, actually I'm not, and you would never see it with me - sorry to disappoint you. Although, you may be the parent that runs out there when my son blows up yours, and I'm SURE you're that parent on the sideline who says "there is no way that kid is 13" - I hear it at every game and tourney. Unfortunately, it's hard for some people to remember we're playing lacrosse and not checkers - they are holding sticks, not pool noodles. Truth is, there are a few kids on my son's 2020 team who are just over 5ft tall and 110 lbs or so, and they are 3 or 4 months older than him. Then, there are a few boys (including mine) who are 5'11" - 6'1", 165-185 lbs. It's a weird age, and boys sprout up at different rates. Like I keep saying, I completely disagree with reclassing and holdbacks, and I think it is cheating the system, but it isn't cheating by definition, unfortunately. Since I can't do anything about it, I just go with it...

Glad you finally are coming round. Its cheating..And most of us have a opinion when asked. Everyone is going with the flo if they want to play club lacrosse. But that doesnt mean we cant be pro active in this cheating the system. I give my opinion and write USL when I get a chance. I am not a sheep and just sit that and do nothing. If USL would come out strongly and actively against it, it might slowly change back to something that is in line with YOUTH sports.

I think at 2017 and to some degree 2018 the kids and parents that are not crazy/insane about lax just kind of let the club thing go. Maybe this is happening for Looneys older teams. I checked the website and the younger teams all have full rosters so the club owner is going to make some cash. Seems like NOVA and Baltimore have so many clubs that Looneys may just be the short end of the stick at the older ages. Just my 2 cents.

Having full rosters and having competitive teams are two separate things. Their issue is that these teams don't have a lot of good players and as they get older, the better kids leave. Plus, it's not just the daddy ball that is causing problems. There was such a takeover of this club by Carroll Manor coaches. They have been keeping CM kids at the expense of better players which has driven people away. This has been a real issue at the 2019 age and some of the younger ages as well.

Outside of Baltimore County, what other MD counties have multiple club teams to choose from that are competitive?

That may be accurate, but CM coaches are running 2019, 2022 and 2023. That 2019 has been full of CM kids that haven't gotten better in the last 3 years but they still have their spot.

So 4 coaches out of 10 teams are running the program? 2023 has two teams, and only one of them have CM coaches. Aside from 2 directors, I believe the rest of the board of directors weren't associated with CM.

18 kids left the Looneys 2018 team. What was the club supposed to do? The kids weren't abandoned. They left.

The start of a new club program 4 years ago had a major impact on Looney's and Greene Turtle's older teams. Both clubs are focused on their younger teams and those teams are all pretty solid. This is old news.

It says that those years never recovered from losing coaches and players to FCA. That was unfortunate for Looney's then and now. HS club is very expensive because of the cost of individual registration in recruiting tournaments. Some kids don't make their HS teams or realize they don't want to play college lax. So the expense and time commitment is unnecessary and therefore less players play club. The ones that wanted to play found a home.

Youth teams are mix of solid to very good. Like most clubs some years stronger than others.

Why would anyone play for Looney's knowing that they folded their two oldest teams? That is like enrolling your kid at a K-12 private school in 7th grade knowing that the school decided to abandon the 10th and 11th graders.

Easy people. It's up to the other club coaches to research who is in. Looneys has done brandywine for 4years. They added some more depth. Crabs will be beat them by 6

why do you need a drinking partner? Nobody wants to meet you at the Poncabird anymore?

might want to hook up with the de-frocked priest who started FCA. or the Crabs guy who likes 8th graders so much he keeps asking them to repeat the grade!

Looneys may be tested. But only by Edge and Crabs. Madlax 2020 (whether Capital, Va/Md, AA, AAA, or super duper elite) does not belong on the same field. Madlax dad (or player) will be gone from this board after Sunday.

Interestingly enough the 3 teams you mention :'edge, crabs and yourselves have another thing in common-an abundance of kids older than their legitimate 2020 counterparts. Enjoy yourselves and see who wins at your own game.

In the Crabs' case a 3rd of the team, or more. If you are there tomorrow notice how, oddly, they are noticeably bigger than the competition.

Bigger, stronger, faster...older
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Looney's Boys Lacrosse - 11/15/15 02:01 PM
Bottom line- if asked to provide birth dates- there would be many holdbacks on the Crabs and a few other teams. So they are there- they are staying for now- so nothing to be done, other than show them up. The sad thing is, many still deny they are there, as they probably realize admitting the number of holdbacks points to the fact they needed them to be as dominant against their on aged peers, as seen on national television. Just be honest, own it- because we know- you are not breaking any "rules" but at least own it.

Not good. The 2022 and 2023 are all Carroll Manor centric as well. Prior to the Carroll Manor influx, it was a lot of Kelly Post since that is where said insurance agent came from

So says someone from the Crabs group, maybe even crab daddy himself. This group would rather have holdbacks and double holdbacks all over the place and crab daddy just smiles and counts his money. At least the out of town players are age appropriate.

what is the difference between kids coming down from Delaware, PA, or up from VA? Other than the airfare, there is no difference. If I had the money I would be flying my kids out to Minnesota for hockey (which I know people who do), but I don't, so they travel to PA for it.

Oh, and BTW, the FL kids are proper age.

Not really sure what you are tying to say. Not trying to be disrespectful but maybe you should practice typing/sentence structure/English 7 days a week. You should do this before you go knocking a youth lax team.

No one knows what that even means. Maybe you should stay with something that might interest you. Hear the local community college has adult education in knitting, try that, you might feel better.

Yes. The 2015 team was very good as was the 2016. The 2020 team is very good. The 2017 and 2018 teams were awful and the club kicked those families to the curb.

The rest of the club is hanging by a thread.

Very true, no loyalty at all. I guess they couldn't find any one to fly in to play for those teams.

"Hanging on by a thread". Really?? I love it when a holes like you post on this board and have no idea what you are talking about. They have 10 teams, from 2019 to 2024, with two 2020 teams, two 2023 teams and 2 2024 teams. I'm positive their 2020 Orange team would kick you teams [lacrosse] any day of the week. What is your problem, did your son not make any of their teams and now you are on here trashing a strong club. Look at the lineup of their coaches, some are former All Americans and one is the head varsity coach of a very strong private Baltimore HS. You need to get your facts straight before you go posting crap. Oh, I get it, you feel empowered when you can hide behind a computer. Good grief, get a life.

No need to. They have respectable teams at their age levels. And no, they do not want your son to play for them, not with a father like you. Their FOGO guy comes here to Md. for the stronger competition than he can experience in his home state. This is above board, he is age appropriate, not like the cheats at Crabs. Let it go, you have no idea what you are talking about.

Crabs 2020 team is really close to a 2019 team and there is no way you can deny it. Their starting 10 are all holdbacks and they even have 2 players who are double holdbacks, will probably be close to 16 years old this summer. This is the way cheating Ryan Mc plays the system. Crabs played Looney's once this past fall and only beat them 8/6 and you are completely wrong, they did not have an easy time doing it. Not too bad for a team with maybe 2 holdbacks compared to Crabs lineup of holdbacks. Crabs 2020 team should and needs to play 2019 where they will get their heads handed to them. Don't come on here bragging about how great Crabs 2020 is, EVERYONE knows how they cheat and game the system. And the sickening part is that it is people/parents like you who feel good about it and feel they have a great team. Just watch other strong 2020 AA team coaches and see how they coach/treat their players and then watch the butt head Ryan M coach. Yup, you will quickly see, he doesn't know how to coach, has a low lacrosse IQ, thus the need for ALL the OLDER players. Oh, and their 2021 team is almost as bad with the large number of holdbacks.

The 2020 Crabs team should play the 2019 Crabs team. I have a feeling that the 2020 team would win that game.

Probably because the Crabs 2020 team is really older than Crabs 2019 team. Ryan Mc just keeps the crap rolling to his advantage. Would love to see some organization/group/authority knock him down a few pegs, make him play within the given guidelines.

You are correct, score was 6/4, I was thinking of something else, but it was a close game, not sure what you were looking at. I even saw butt head Ryan M screaming at his players, taking his hat off and slamming it one the ground, this is how he coaches. He comes very very close to belittling his players. BUT, you are completely wrong, Crabs 2020 has many more than 4 holdbacks on the 2020 team, it is a known fact. If you think it is true, post their roster without names, just dates of birth. You either won't or can't because you have no access to that info, you are just throwing out numbers. Don't forget, last November, the tournament at McDonogh School, all of Crabs rosters were accidently released, lot of people have that information, so stop your denial, it isn't very becoming.

They did that once with a May 1st cutoff that would still include some holdbacks. They lost to 91 Crush 19-8.

Looneys 2020 and Crabs 2020 are both very good teams. All of their games since they first played have been within 1 or 2 goals. Both teams would probably be ranked in the "pre-season" top 3 nationally, if there was such a ranking. The Hoco 2020 AA will be a "mini" version of the MIAA A conference -- lots of terrific teams beating on each other each week. Cant wait for the action to start!

I don't believe Crabs had that much of a lead at any point during the game. Looking at Looney's players they look 13 and 14 years old. Looking at Crabs you can easily and clearly see they are older, most 15 and some approaching 16 by summer 2016.
So, as you say, they can't beat Crabs, you never know but it is clearly a much older Crabs team, deny all you want but it is simply the truth. Ryan Mc games the system and creates these older teams for one purpose, to win, especially this year, the 2020 team, because he is the head coach. Take away his older holdbacks and this team would not be a strong 2020 team and Ryan Mc would have no idea how to improve their play, other than to bring in older players. I have seen him coach quite a few times, never impressed. I do not know the man, do not want to. What he is doing to youth lacrosse is shameful and he is driven by ego and money. Would really like to see someone put a stop to his gaming/playing the grade base system but not sure that will happen any time soon.

I agree.. For the supposedly governing body of Lacrosse to stay SILENT on this issue just shows what cowards they have at leadership positions. Anyone with any decency knows that YOUTH sports should go by age. All other major youth sports are. They have such cowards at leadership positions I dont ever remember even seeing one article, blog, etc coming out of USL about this issue..But they have stances on many other issues that effect youth lacrosse.

If I had to guess you are a Crabs fan/parent making this statement. Crabs had their own deal in Florida around the same time that Looney's players were at 3D. Typical for Crabs fans to try to trash any other club that gets positive press or reviews. Where did you get this information? Thought so, you can't provide this information. From everything I heard Crabs deal in Florida in January was a complete nightmare, many complaints about players playing time, having 12 to 15 middies on each team. Just another money grab for the Crabs organization. This was their first year doing this, so given the bad reviews it may be their last year for this cluster f***k for Crabs.

Its about what? I'm not familiar with Roughriders so I'm completely lost in what you are referring to about an announcer. What would an announcer have to do with youth lacrosse. Before you may ask I'm not associated with Looney's in any way.

Looney's have had 3 very good teams, and two of them are done. They folded two teams and told those kids to find a new home.

Rest of the club is crap.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, yours just happens to be very misguided and wrong. This club is strong, with 10 teams from 2019 to 2025 and their are 2 2020 teams, 2 2023 and 2 2024. Doesn't appear to be, using your word, crap. They also placed three players from this organization on the U 19 US Team. Didn't see any other club from this area do that. Why display negativity on a youth lacrosse team/organization and their players. You may need to find other things to do with your time.

Hello Looney's hater. This is the 1st time you've acknowledged a 3rd successful Looney's team. Can we assume you'll be scouting the 2023-2025 teams this spring and report back as whether the are crap or not?

This has to be either a dad or a player from the 2017, 2018 or 2019 Looney's team. If you want to be mad at someone, be mad at FCA. The creation of FCA had a severe impact on Looney's and Greene Turtle at those age groups. All of the kids that were displaced (with the possible exception of you) found new teams and moved on. The younger Looney's teams are all quite good and will likely beat their FCA counterparts in the coming years. Revenge is a dish better served cold.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Looney's Boys Lacrosse - 02/22/16 03:37 PM
The awfulness of Looney's 2017 and 2018 had nothing to do with FCA. Those teams were bad from the get go.

The termination of those teams and displacement of the kids/families rest solely with the people who run Looney's.

Posted By: Anonymous Re: Looney's Boys Lacrosse - 02/22/16 04:11 PM
Fact is on the 2017 and 2018. Fca hurt those years for sure. The club made a run of it for two years after the fca thing happened but fielded very mediocre teams in those years to do the right thing for the kids who stayed after the fca event. Kids on those teams lost interest (result of them getting cut from their high school teams, realizing they weren't going to play at a high level, cost, travel, etc) and both teams had a real hard time getting kids to show up for summer tourneys where they have to pay decent money. Tryout numbers were also very low as kids were no longer interested. The club made one last attempt to have a combo 2017/2018 team but the parents weren't interested. The teams went elsewhere at that point. Most kids that wanted to keep playing landed at the turtle and other places. Others probably were displaced without a home. The club did everything they could to help but this situation was a tough one and if the numbers aren't there what can you do.

Not taking anything away from the boys, as some did show well. The problem is there is a perceived conflict of interest. Having the boys bused down to FL, and having the Looney's coach a team screams foul.

If it was a Crabs coach, or 91, etc. everyone would raise the same flags.

Don't see anything wrong with a Looney's coach or any other club coach coaching a team. Not that many of Looney's players were on that team, they were spread out on other teams and also the Looney's coach had absolutely nothing to do with the evaluation process. If Crabs or 91 or anyone else did the same thing I would have no problem with that, as long as the coach was outside of the evaluation process.

Breakes 2020 were raided by 91 MD 2020, and they didn't collapse the team.

I think there is nothing wrong with the Looneys dropping the 17 & 18 teams. This is a business and they couldn't offer a value proposition at those age levels. With more teams coming in to the area (3D and 91) teams will be more dilution among all teams. My guess is no club will be strong at all age brackets. One year it could be Greene Turtle, one year FCA and one year Crabs. Parents and players have to do what they think is right for themselves. It isn't a question of loyalty but rather reality.

Breakers 2020 for 2016 is a very weak team, 91 left very little for Breakers to build on. Says absolutely nothing about the Looney's organization. What club are you associated with? Bet you others could crash those parents. Seems like sour grapes on your part, go grind your ax elsewhere.

Your right taking money from parents and telling them the team will be competitive isn't wrong, only that the teams aren't competitive and the teams were formed for the sole purpose of collecting money to pad Breakers pockets.

I would rather a club say, we aren't going to have a team this year because we suck and can't keep a game within 10 goals! Save your money, play rec ball or move onto a smaller club.

This was their first year doing this, so given the bad reviews it may be their last year for this cluster f***k for Crabs/NLF or at best just have the players from the six member clubs attend. Are you in a position to say that the top players in the country were at IMG. I seriously doubt you are. The IMG thing is just another large money grab/promotion by the members of NLF trying to convenience parents/players that they are the best. Far from it, do you think there are not equal or better players at other clubs than the 6 that formed NLF. Of course there are. So where did the IMG players get their "showing" from Ty Xanders? You seem to be the type of individual who just can't stand to see other clubs/organizations/players get deserved recognition.

Looney's teams average about $1200-1300/yr. Some are more if they do more tournaments or build in swag. You can't make money at those rates even though it's a lot for youth sports. It's a nonprofit so the question of whether to field any particular team is not motivated by profit. They don't run tournaments either so nobody is making $ unless they are a non parent coach

I'm not a Crabs parent, but my kids played against the Crabs all the time when youth ball was just aged based, and the Crabs teams were always excellent.

Single them out (even though everyone has holdbacks now), but they always field great teams because great players want to play for them. Saying otherwise is just sour grapes.

They had a one U13 and one U15 besides HS teams. They generally had some very good AGE based teams at youth level. Their HS teams were grade base as they should have been and still are.
Ryan always put out that holding your player back was good.And encoraged his HS team on with holdbacks. But it only effected his HS teams. Most other teams and parents didnt complain because it was HS...He is now able to do the same thing at YOUTH level and many think it is wrong. Including me.
I think he is only concerned about himself and organization and not what is better for the game of lacrosse.

Totally disagree. If the kids wanted to play together then they should be put in tournaments they will be competitive in. Do not go to tournaments to win or put your team in the Varsity A to get crushed. The boys and family could have still enjoyed the game of lacrosse. Wait until you go to the HS tournaments and you have a group of 17 year old kids playing JV A. LOL. It happens. HS tournaments have JV B, JV A, HS B, HS A, and some have HS AA. There is a place for any team that wants to enjoy the great sport of LAX. We played HS B last year with a group of Sophomores against a team of U19 from the Midwest. They were big but no stick work. HS B was fine for them and for us.

Crabs, Looney's, FCA, Hawks, 91..etc, do you honestly think their top teams will play in competition like stated above? They are the top programs in the area and if they can't compete in the top brackets they most Limey won't have a team. These clubs are protecting their brand by doing so. Ther are plenty of other clubs in the area that will take your money and put a non-competitive team together, these clubs will not. People can complain all they want about what happened with the two Looney's teams, but it was the proper thing to do to protect their brand.

Well lets do some math. $1500 for the summer season. 3 or 4 tournaments. 22 to 26 players on the team. So this is around $36000 coming into the team. Ok so what is the price to enter a team into a tournament? $2400 or is this to much $. But lets roll with it. SO with 4 tournaments at $2400 a tournament it comes to $9600. So after you pay for the tournaments you are left with give or take $26400. I would call this a profit. Feel free to argue with these numbers and please try to find where the $26400 goes.

So can you please give me what one day of field rental cost? And then we can do this number times 10 or 12 practices for during the summer season. So if the field cost $200 a night that comes to 2k or $2400 We still are looking at a nice car worth of profits.

Also the more I look at all my sons tournaments for this summer and they are the big ones. The team cost to enter is avg. a lot closer to $1500 not $2400.

The only idiot is the person who thinks money going into a coaches pocket is not profit. Its like a business owner saying his salary is not profit. LOL. So I am guessing if we add up everything we listed here minus the coaches pay. There will be a lot of "profit" left to PAY the coaches.

So can you please give me what one day of field rental cost? And then we can do this number times 10 or 12 practices for during the summer season. So if the field cost $200 a night that comes to 2k or $2400 We still are looking at a nice car worth of profits.

Took two seconds to pull up Fairfax field rental rates. With a quick look I see $15 per team for a tournament. Or I see $5.50 per kid if county resident. And 30$ per if not. So I think the $200 per practice is about right or on the high side.

teams are practicing 10 months a year or more so try more like 40-50 practices /yr. Don't forget fall tournaments and spring leagues. And some coaches get paid or their kids play for free. Turf fields are 150-200/hr. Profits are in the tournaments not teams

All these teams charge more money for spring and fall tournaments and league. I guess the real question is what is the going rate to coach a 2020 -2017 travel team. This will answer 90% of my questions about where the money goes.

Spoke like true middle school holdback parent. When HS comes around all bets are off. No one is walking around saying they are the best at the club league.

Grades are more important. No money in lax my friend. Wake up.

Totally disagree. If the kids wanted to play together then they should be put in tournaments they will be competitive in. Do not go to tournaments to win or put your team in the Varsity A to get crushed. The boys and family could have still enjoyed the game of lacrosse. Wait until you go to the HS tournaments and you have a group of 17 year old kids playing JV A. LOL. It happens. HS tournaments have JV B, JV A, HS B, HS A, and some have HS AA. There is a place for any team that wants to enjoy the great sport of LAX. We played HS B last year with a group of Sophomores against a team of U19 from the Midwest. They were big but no stick work. HS B was fine for them and for us.


Crabs, Looney's, FCA, Hawks, 91..etc, do you honestly think their top teams will play in competition like stated above? They are the top programs in the area and if they can't compete in the top brackets they most Limey won't have a team. These clubs are protecting their brand by doing so. Ther are plenty of other clubs in the area that will take your money and put a non-competitive team together, these clubs will not. People can complain all they want about what happened with the two Looney's teams, but it was the proper thing to do to protect their brand.

You goober are funny. Tournaments can make a lot of money, but running a club itself is a not a big money maker. You have no idea how much time and money it takes to run a club.

The only idiot I see is you. Everyone is talking about expenses, field/tournament/uniform/equipment costs and the only thing you can add is your childish comment about Looney's parents. Guess you are a real big shot hiding behind your laptop. You don't even know who is contributing to these conversations, can be anyone from any number of clubs but you just had to get in your childish dig. You need to grow up, IDIOT. If you can't contribute something worthwhile and on topic/point STFU.

go ask Ryan M at Crabs how much he pays himself to coach their 2020 team and how much he puts in his pocket for the tournaments. He is driven by money and greed and also ego.

So at 150$ this comes to $7500 for 50 practices over a full year. So I am not wrong when I say team charge more money for Spring and fall lacrosse on top of the $1500 or so for the summer tournament season. I think they charge around half for fall so this is $2250 per kid per year if they are a high school kid. 24 kids on a team. This equals 54k. 3 fall tournaments 4 summer at $1750 each comes to $12250 plus a year of practice field time $19750. So you got uniforms, insurance and what else to pay for with the 34k left over. And money you pay the coaches I call profit. Salary is profit not expenses.

most team practice more than 1 hour, and some clubs have 2 teams per age group...factor in uniforms, coach pay (i don't know how you call this a profit). As another poster mentioned, only profitable venture is tournaments or camps.

I agree, pay is not a profit, it is an expense, just like fees for tournaments, rental fees etc. Profit is what is left after all expenses are paid.

You are trying to make a case against for profit clubs but you are posting on a forum about a non profit. 1100-1500 would be for fall spring summer w looneys. Helmet, box league, sweatshirt etc would be extra but not compulsory. Most teams carry 18-22. Not sure how coaches sons works but would think they don't pay full freight. Paid coaches are generally college players home for summer. Would guess they get 500-1000. Wouldn't call that profit. The for profit enterprises like hawks, madlax, team 91 or breakers cost over 2k and those clubs also run tournaments. Clubs like looneys, fca, laxworld etc don't line anyone's pockets. There maybe other motivations you don't like for guys to spend their time running and coaching these teams, but mainly they are guys that love the sport and enjoy coaching kids.

We can all lament that we are paying 10x what parents paid just 10 years ago. But we keep lining up to do so. Therefore clubs will continue to pop up and people will make money. That's ok if they provide a good experience

I like your break down and I understand your point. So I guess the next conversation is what is better the FOR Profit club or the Non-Profit club. My thoughts on this question are. The non- profit clubs will have one or two good or really good teams. But the rest of the teams are kinda of just there or forgotten about. The for profit clubs are closer to good to great from the youngest to the oldest team. They also have tons more options of things you can do for your kid. I also find it easier to go to the club owner of a for profit to complain or ask for explanation about an issue. With the non-profits you get the I am doing this for free do not complain to me look and attitude.

If you pay a person to mow your lawn, is that a profit? Do you claim that as income on YOUR taxes. Salaries are expenses to the program. If the owner is a coach, then his salary is an expense against the club and INCOME for him, not profit.

Syman tics sir, If they are smart enough to take all the money you give them every year and pay out all the people working with the club money that they go use to buy things or food.
My your logic they did not make a profit. So with your theory if all the money left over goes to someones personal account the club has not made a profit?

Parents should always be looking and on top of what there club and other clubs are doing and offer. You should always be a agent for your son. If you put your head in the sand you will be left holding the bag.

As someone who is running a club, field space costs money but you can mitigate the cost by having two team use one field and split the cost. To maximize profits a club would need an even number of teams and as many "Volunteer" dad coaches as possible. If you charge $1500 per kid with 20 kids, run the HOCO league, 5 middle school summer tournaments, two practices a week, make each person pay for their own US lacrosse membership, give a decent uniform package with socks, have off season training indoors, you can make anywhere from $5k to $8K per team. You will have one time fees for Incorporating and tax structuring. Ein numbers can be obtained through the IRS at no cost. Management time still comes into play as you will be chasing people for money (huge headache), players will leave, and you will need to back fill spots as little johnies is not getting any playing time or getting any better. A good club owner will attend all the tournaments and mingle with the parents, clients, to maintain persistency with player returning. Finally, coaches sons will play for the cost of the uniform or free. Can be a nice side job.

There are very few clubs tied to specific schools any longer. Clubs are a mix of various private and public schools now.

Don't think Looney's, 91 MD or Hawks are associated with any school

So if you are paying more then $1500 and your team does not do indoor training as part of the $1500. And I guessing most clubs do not charge $1500 for 12 months of lacrosse? You can see that the 5k to 8k per team could go up pretty fast.
I am not complaining about the profit they make. But I want parents to be aware there is a profit being made so you should not feel bad in anyway calling them out for anything.

Looney's 2023 assistant coaches epic meltdown at today's 2023 game was embarrassing. Screaming, threatening and suspending play because your kid got checked hard...Really. Just say no to Dad coaches.....Hope you enjoyed the game from the stands...By the way your kid should have been removed from the field today for his retaliation checking to the face and his meltdown as well.. Great work dirtbag...

So Looneys...what did you have to do/pay/promise to get Howard county to look the other way while you bring your illegal player up from Florida? Would love to know because there are some more rules that maybe we could all get them to ignore.

No one in Howard County wants to pay for the level of rule enforcement you psychos want to see put in place for youth lacrosse. It's like you want to see a SWAT division, a K9 division, and a youth lacrosse division of the police force.

No skin in the game, but if the kid is age appropriate why does it matter? The other kids should feel priviledged to be playing against the best players in the game. Isn't that what everyone wants (kids, coaches and parents)? When my son was a U13 and U15 player that was among the highlights playing against the top kids and teams. Not a fan of the current holdback scenario at the youth level, but playing against the best should be. Learn alot more losing 8 - 7, than winning 12 - 0! Enjoy these times! Once at the high school level you will realize how silly most of this chatter is!

I don't disagree with post above. At least he is on age. The problem is the HOCO rules are not being enforced and this is just another one they are letting slide.

. Wrong. I was at the game before the Son's game and stayed to watch with my son. Even if the Sons won every face off they would not beat Looneys. Looneys controlled the game from the beginning. Sons outplayed in every facet. Looney's started subbing in last period and Sons got a few more goals but prior to that it wasn't close. That said, Sons is a nice team and played hard, never gave up.

Guess you can't read. I saw the game after my sons game, we stayed to watch. All that Sons did on defense was to clog the middle forcing only outside shots, very few goals scored by Looney's in close. That was Sons game plan and they played it well. I saw every Looney's player see action, they ran three midfields and in the last period the third midfield saw more time. My son is friends with a few Looney's players and he knows many others, this is how we know all Looney's players saw action. Sons with 14 more possessions wouldn't have related to 5 more goals, up until the last period they struggled to score every time they had the ball. Not associated with Looney's but it seems you missed things in this game. Maybe you were hoping for a different outcome.

That doesn't seem defensive, the poster just asked a question and you have no answer. I sort of agree with the poster, some just like to complain about anything, even if it has nothing to do with them.

Any team they have played or have potential to play can have a complaint about the fact that they are breakng a well known written rule. Especially if the league that wrote the rule is aware of it and doing nothing.

He is not a guest player, has been with the team for two years. He came to Maryland to play for a strong club team and he and his parents had two teams in mind and he tried out for each team and he selected Looney's because of the coaching, other team members and the overall feel of the Looney's program. And, the other clue he tried out for was not Crabs, wasn't interested in Crabs. So again, he is not a guest player.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Looney's Boys Lacrosse - 04/28/16 07:54 PM
Or the playing restrictions his parents demanded didn't fly with the club owners.

Does he do anything but FOGO?
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Looney's Boys Lacrosse - 04/28/16 08:00 PM
Call it what you want. If he wanted to play for the best, why is he with Looneys? What a second rate organization they have become. While they have a bunch of teams, only one is at all competitive with top competition. But it let's KD keep on keeping on.

I'm pretty sure your son is not a 2017 or 2018. Since the Looney's kicked those families to the curb.

Just because Looneys includes him on on their roster year round, the fact remains he only comes up for some games until summer time. He is also listed on the roster for a Florida high school team and plays with them making him ineligible for certain tournaments AND the hoco league. You are breaking the rules.

They didn't kick them to the curb. They realized that both teams were not that strong and would struggle in any league or tournament they would be in. Rather than expose them to this, they gave these players an opportunity to find other teams that would have better results. Plus, they gave these players the chance to either keep the teams or move on.
This was a fair and honest move on the part of Looney's and all of the players did find other teams to hook up with. And, this was done very early on so no one had to scramble to find a team.
I just love it when butt heads come on a forum and just regurgitate crap that they heard or think they feel they know what is going on when in actuality they know crap.
Start paying attention to your own son and stop posting thinks that are incorrect.

Absolutely not. Some people try to teach their kids right from wrong. What you need to do is stop justifying what you are doing and follow the rules put in place for everyone. Hoco ignoring the rules does not make it the right thing to do and teach kids.

Go read the rules again, very carefully.


Here you go. The player is participating in a high school level team therefore he is ineligible. There is no other way to read the below. Hoco is allowing Looneys to beak their own rule and it is a rule hat according to the league bylaws all teams agreed to prior to the season. No team should be put in the position of having to appeal the player when it is a blatant rule being broken. Just go to Hudl or the Florida schools write ups etc.

"Players who are participating in any high-school level program such as a high school freshman, JV-B, junior varsity, varsity or club team should not be eligible for 8th grade/U15 competition in the same season. "

Someone a few days ago posted about this rule/guideline and noted how it is worded. It says "should not". After this person posted this someone took exception and thought it was a stretch. Maybe it is but I feel the wording could have been more direct and on point, such as "can not" That same poster also mentioned how the grade base rule/guidelines are worded, and pointed out they could have been worded stronger.
Is this enough to give any team a way around a rule? Only HOCO can answer that.

So now youth lacrosse is pushing it so far to say "should not" means do it if you want or don't get caught? No wonder half the kids involved think they can do whatever they want. Just following their parents lead. You and everyone else knows exact,y what this rule means. This is so ridiculous it is almost comical. I guess they SHOULD have said "should not except if you are Looneys or Crabs and then by all means do whatever you want because we are afraid of you and all your connections that may impact our league and our families if we say no" Is that better?
