What does everyone think the impact Team 91 MD will have on all the other local clubs?
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Maryland, D.C., Virginia Fall 2015 Summer 2016 Lacrosse - 07/31/15 06:07 PM
My guess is that 2021 and younger will be fairly strong and 2020 will be okay. They will need to prove their brand works in Baltimore before they will get the older kids.

If they were just south of Baltimore and convenient for the DMV, it would be a different story. They would be able to take players from MADLAX, Hawks, etc.

The impact will be that the Baltimore clubs will become even more diluted and even the best clubs will get a little worse..... LaxWorld, Rock, Wolfpack, Crabs, Breakers, FCA, Looney's, Kooper's, Greene Turtle, etc.

Strong clubs from out of state have tried to crack this scene before and didn't last long..... 3D, United, ???

I would not jump from a club you are happy with thinking 91 will be any better in their 1st year.

they could be strong at 2020. Breakers coach at that grade already listed on 91 website. Breakers were among the top 4-5 in MD at 2020. will be interesting to see if all players follow. Breakers is one of the most expensive in balt. Will 91 be more?

Where 3d blew it and Team 91 will blow it is neither centered in Southern Maryland. As a prior poster noted the best strategy is to be somewhere 30 mins south of Baltimore, 30-40 minutes from Annapolis and 20 minutes away from Montgomery County and 40 minutes away from Fairfax County.

Lots of people would exercise a choice and you could draw some people from all those areas and incubate a good club. Setting up shop in Leesburg Virginia was stupid for 3d and alienated the families of the better players they were able to attract. Setting up a me-too version of Madlax or VLC in Fairfax County is equally stupid, and setting up a me-too version of Crabs or FCA in Baltimore is likely the most stupid thing which is what Team 91 is about to do. I see more of the same reading that they are doing tryouts in early August in Baltimore burbs.

It's a loser strategy right out of the box. 3d just blew it. Nobody wants to drive to Leesburg to play with the Battlelax and PVI leftovers. That's a shame considering they have a platform to be a success but just a terrible execution strategy. Ditto with Team 91 Maryland...that will be exciting for about 3 months.

91 focused on building the boys side of the club from bottom up- starting with the little kids and making their teams strong and growing them. They did have older middle school and high school teams at first, but they were not as competitive. As their name got stronger, the older teams because more competitive and as the younger teams aged, they became some of the top teams- example- Extreme, 91 orange 2019, Crush, Smash, united, Heat, Bandits. If they work with the same model- starting with the younger teams and growing the club, they may be just as successful, only time will tell and you may not see success within the first year. I also agree that the 2020 team from the Breakers will be competitive.

I do think that a saturated market is really not great for the sport though, as it dilutes talent over many teams- but it does give the consumer the edge in finding a team and a philosophy that works for their family. Everyone should really research any club you join from philosophy, to the coach and past experiences good and bad from previous players, etc. It is a lot of money to spend and you need to be wise about your decisions, especially if starting young, as there is a long road ahead. Good luck to all!

That team won the MYLA [lacrosse] A division and made a decent run at trying to stay together as a club team. Time for something new. There should be a sizable migration at the 2019 age this year. Tryouts will be interesting.

Leesburg is the worst. I live in Fairfax. Expensive tolls both ways and fighting commuter traffic to get there from Fairfax on a weeknight. The ideal location for a DMV club is Tysons Corner exit if there are fields. Potomac School? Great Falls fields? Or the first few exits over the Maryland border. Tons of Fairfax County kids go to the Maryland side prep schools. Bullis has a zillion fields. People are going to complain no matter what, but in the end people will also go if the program is the real deal. There are Bethesda carpools to go play for Crabs and FCA almost an hour north. A logical thing is to get access to kids in Loudon, Fairfax, Montgomery, Howard and over to Annapolis / Severna Park areas. Loudon County is the absolute worst. Not enough good players or population there to justify a location there which makes it too impractical for the regions where more and better inventory of kids are.

I always say I would rather drive 35 to 50 mins for a top of the line product. Then drive 5 mins and get about 5 mins of good lacrosse and play with not good players. Its the same argument you need to have when you compare prices of clubs. You drive 50 mins and pay $50 at Ruths Chris steak house. But you will only drive 5 mins and pay $20 for steak at Outback. The same rules can apply to a lacrosse club choice. You have to look at it that way.

was the original poster referring to the whole club or just the MLC 2019 team? That team would be in HS come fall. MLC was down big time this past spring in terms of # of teams in MYLA. MLC had always been a quasi rec/club program with most teams playing MYLA and a few playing in NYPLL. Maybe they're a victim of the rush to play full time club at younger and younger ages.

Most MLC teams are MYLA rec teams. Volunteers are the backbone of youth sports and for better or worse mostly parents. Not affiliated with MLC but don't think they are folding. 2019 team stayed together for club purposes and now moving to high school. Perhaps kids on that team dispers.ing for recruiting purposes

To my knowledge, the 2019 MLC team is the only recent MLC team to play in club tournaments and the only MLC team to ever play in the NPYLL. MLC is a great rec/MYLA member with many teams in the boys and girls divisions every year. I am not sure why the 2019 team disbanded but all of those boys are good players who are in the process of finding new teams right now.

Were you there?
There were close to 100 for some age groups. other age groups already had base teams and were only filling in. High school age may be a bit scarce but that is not a shocker given teams at this age group are usually set. 2019 and 2021 may be weaker but the other teams very competitive.

How did they have base teams in Balt if this is the first tryout??
Did they have some complete teams come over?? 100 is a good showing for a age group..What grade? Be an interesting year coming up with all these club teams. I find it hard to believe that Balt will be ale to produce that many true very good teams at each youth age group below 9th grade down to 4th.

Both Breakers 2020 coaches moved over. That is the age they had 100 kids and they will field 2 teams at that age. MM's Breakers 2022 team is coming over for the most part also.

Wow...Figured MM's team would come over..But 2020 teams too. Ouch! Good start to org. Breakers will need to reload bigtime. They had a little trouble filling a few teams last year. Wonder if Breakers will drop a couple of teams??

I heard they lost their $ backer. Zero confirmation on that, but VLC was an apparent beneficiary. VLC 2020 tryouts were very impressive....50 solid players on the field. Some from Cav, Freedom, madlax, and others. This should be a great team in an otherwise unimpressive northern va 2020 field of teams.

Rock is over $2000 as well, $2200 plus additional money for clinics and other options. If you do everything you are paying close to $2700!

Isn't it funny that on both the boys and girls side, the top clubs are usually at the low end of the price range?

Agreed. If you kid isn't a 2022 or 2024, you are not playing for elite coaches. Rather you are playing for rec coaches that moved over to club. 91 is a for profit organization and priced accordingly. Crabs makes their money off tournaments and camps.

I think this will help Kill the Madlax Maryland model. They are saying the tryouts are not going well this week. Club Blue will always have the GT prep kids and Next Level has a place. This is just taking the bottom level teams and making a better bottom level team.

Someone that has coached at minimum of a Varsity level and preferably the collegiate level.

What it is not, is someone's dad that played in college.

Club Blue falling apart. Not even having younger year teams - and lost most of their coaches. CB boys at all grades - except 2021 and 2023 are trying out for other clubs.

Bethesda 2021 has 110 kids coming to tryouts this weekend and has 70-80 at every other grade.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Maryland, D.C., Virginia Fall 2015 Summer 2016 Lacrosse - 08/27/15 06:46 PM
Bethesda 2021 will be strong. Bethesda 2020; however, has blown up. Most are headed to Next Level 2020. Bethesda 2020 will be a B team this year. That's what you get for having no HS program.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Maryland, D.C., Virginia Fall 2015 Summer 2016 Lacrosse - 08/27/15 08:48 PM
Bethesda has no interest in a high school program. It's a not for profit youth organization and the best and biggest one in the area. The for profits should be thrilled Bethesda is developing the boys that play for them in high school and Bethesda will stand behind its mission and offer lax to every kid.

Sad what the for profits have done to the sport. Early recruiting has certainly impacted 8th grade squads - nothing new there. It too bad since only a handful of kids will ever get recruited before 10th grade.

And Next Level is not where u would go if you had a chance to be recruited in high school - been years since had even a decent high school team.

How many coaches could actually be considered "Elite", whatever that means. Pedigree means something but is not the sole determinant of a coach's ability. Can he assemble a competitive team, is my kid getting good instruction, do the boys have fun, does every kid play or do many ride the bench in pursuit of wins? Those are the things I care about.

Guess it depends on how you define elite. Sounds like the families that moved over or joined 91 are pretty comfortable with what the club offers. Why do you care about how they are marketing if your son is not a member of the club? Some of those teams were in the top 5 as Breakers and moved almost intact adjusting where needed. No reason to expect that they will not still perform competitively. Please enlighten us with your definition of "elite".

One of the clubs defined elite coaching as having playing experience at the highest levels (D1, MLL, Team USA) and previous head coaching experience at high school or college level. I can go along with that.

Don't let that guy bully you. There was nothing wrong with your question.

For the record, he is wrong. There were a lot of kids there for my son's grade, but a lot less than 70+ at the tryouts before and after my son's. But hopefully all the kids who tryout for any club find a good home and get better.

Bitmore is Brendan Mundorf's club. The supplemental tryouts had much better attendance, so Rock & Bitmore may no longer need to merge some of their younger teams.

Yes they should there is to many teams for the level of talent. Merge and your A teams might be good enough to win something.

Are you serious? How many times did Heros or Bitmore ever beat M&D 2021 or YJ 2021? Think the answer is zero. M&D added 7 new players also. Heros added 8 girls from Bitmore, 3 of which are better than what they already had. We'll see how "unstoppable" they are. Glad you are confident though.

They have both boys and girls programs, although I'm pretty sure everyone was talking about the boys program, and then for some unexplainable reason someone jumped in and started arguing which girls program is better. We get all kinds in here...LOL

I think it's mostly B teams in next level now....kind of like the great falls spring league. Kind of a shame but I think practice in the fall makes more sense for the more serious programs if you're only doing one day a week.

No such thing as a bad league for kids 10 years or 12 years old. NL is providing a league for kids to play and improve their skills on this fall. Nothing wrong with that for kids who want to play in the fall.

They would improve a lot more if they were practicing regularly vs games only and no practices.

Blackwolf, VLC and Madlax's top teams only practice in the fall - no games. Kids are better served practicing instead of playing games with zero practicing.

I would of thought the games only model was better but if you have new players in the fall practice is a way better option. But I think I would make it a longer practice 2 hours or more.

Actually we (VLC) practice weekly in the fall, play a few scrimmages, and obviously a couple of tourneys. I think it is a good mix to be honest.

You mean 2-hour practice and one-hour game? My kids tried that and it was too much. 90 minutes + 45 minutes would probably work.

No they are not - Bethesda 2021 beat them - with just 13 kids showing up. Bethesda 2021 is clearly the top team in NL League in 2020 Division - playing up.

Game was 9-7 with Cavalier scoring 3 goals in last couple minutes to make it respectable. Cavalier is an average 8th Grade squad - likely a B Team in NPYLL.

There is no chance at all that pooling a team together from Next Level, Club Blue, and Bethesda is going to make a 2020 "super team". None of those 3 teams are superstar 2020 teams.

Well this NL 2020 team will have a test this weekend coming up they play the Madlax 2019VA team which has won every game by 4 or more goals this year in this league. They have a light roster which most teams do in this league so its really hard to tell how good a team is if they are missing 30% of there team at a game. But I have seen this NL 2020 team play and they do play well and seem to be able to score.

Pretty much all the top teams there


No Crabs

No Team 91 Crush

No Dukes

and several other very good teams


Thanks Dukes dad, but not really in the same league as Crabs and Crush. Everyone knows where they stand WRT to Crush and nobody cares about Crabs since they are tainted so this looks like a very nice lineup.

Crabs is better than any of the teams in this tourney.

And the Sons aren't tainted? They got caught cheating red handed in the NXT spring league. That team has as many holdbacks as any team.

But nobody cares, just a bunch of holdbacks - tainted.

Looney's - holdbacks

FCA - holdbacks

91 MD - holdbacks

Mesa - holdbacks


And you can keep embarrassing yourself by calling Crabs tainted. They aren't breaking any rules and their kids get D1 offers. And they also beat your team easily on the field.

LOL.

Don't know the details of holdbacks on those other teams so share them if you have them but we all know that Crabs have set the standard. How many of the 2019 kids will be called down for Beach Lax this year?

"No rules were broken" - the Crabs motto.

Proud to call them tainted at each and every opportunity.

They also play in their own tournaments in Poolesville. Against nobodies. So not actually the best tournaments.

But to the PP's point, yes this team is not very good. Crabs 2020 will beat them by 10 goals.

This NL team is good they play great D. and have poles that can run. I know this is a excuse but Madlax Va was down two top Middies and a LSM. The game went into overtime. I am a Madlax parent but I will be routing for this NL team. I would prefer them be good over some of the other clubs.

Appreciate that this sport has reached the point where there is such a thing as a 8th or a 9th grade commit who isn't a very good player. The touting and the hype is bearding the reality that the main problem in club lacrosse is that few if any kids are really learning how to play and are becoming fundamentally sound. I wasn't at the game, but if you teach a kid at this age how to move on defense and practice up skill you can see rapid improvements. Sounds like Next Level is starting to get back to that, and if they do the results will follow.

As a father whose kid is now out of college, NL is not a model club. They've never been able to field real HS teams (usually they've had just combo teams) and the coaching has been sporadic.

The Heights guy may be able to get it going, but the Landon guys tried and failed before bailing.

I have really only been witness to the 2019 and 2020 clubs and they seem to be good but not great and coached well.

Hill school has lots of good teams. Interested in seeing Looneys and Hawks. Strong squads last year and what I saw of the Hawks ML game at Landon - Hawks has some new players including a new FO kid from Crabs. To bad Crabs aren't gonna be there - players are probably at driving school and/or taking the SAT.

Im personally not expecting any of the MD clubs at Hill School to be markedly better then at the end of the summer (3 months ago). Very few players changed clubs. The biggest game changer will likely be FCAs 2019 attack group who is now on 2020.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Maryland, D.C., Virginia Fall 2015 Summer 2016 Lacrosse - 10/31/15 01:20 PM
That fca attack group actually hurts the chemistry. Fca beat Looneys twice last year without them. Looneys added another out of state kid besides that no one. Rising sons took on crabs model- hold backs. It is what it is.

Looneys added 7 kids. Also they beat fca 10 to 2 with their 2019 attack hold backs last fall. They were injured last spring when then lost to fca. These are facts.

The 3 attackmen and the goalie on FCA are on age 2020 players. Go peddle that nonsense elsewhere.


FCA goalie with summer birth should be 2019

You actually don't. The rules say things are grade based now. Nobody says you have to keep whining about something that you dislike that is actually legally allowed.

That's not a rule, it's just a way to organize kids into teams. Leaves lots of room for interpretation, obviously.

If you Deicide your kid needs to repeat a grade have the balls to have him play at his age level. There is no reason kids should be able to redo a grade and play down.
Crabs 2021 have three kids with 2001 birthdays.. I have a 2021 born in 2003 and a 2019 born in 2001... That's ridiculous and crabs and their parents should be embarrassed

Settle down, anti-Crabs guy. VLC got a huge boost by their purchase the Crabs. More bids to recruiting events, better tournaments, higher visibility, more recruiting success, etc.

Compared to 3d, Madlax and other lax clubs who are simply buying clubs to get more fees, the Crabs are very pedestrian and conservative.

One crappy tournament you are correct the ones at Polo grounds. But Madlax always plays 4 tournaments or more and the other tournaments are always the best of the best for the top teams. This is a fact. I agree the Polo Grounds tournaments suck but the other 3 are always top of the top.

2021 Year Group has several high quality Maryland Squads. Seems on any given day - they can all beat eachother:

Bethesda, Hawks, Crabs, GT, Koopers

Last Year - Roughriders had couple good wins - so will be interesting to see if they are in mix with these 5 this year.

Rest of Year Group Teams are big drop off from these.

Having played or seen a bunch of those teams in action, that looks accurate. Roughriders certainly played better in the summer than its 2-4 HoCo record would have seemed to suggest.

Agree - too bad most of these 5 teams that keep getting mentioned as top tier in MD - will not look the same - when birth certificates are required for WSYL Qualifier. Even May 1st 2002 cutoff is going to make a few of the top players ineligible - as it should be.

How many players will be ineligible from each team Nostradamus?

Based on the Rosters with Dates of Birth that were released last week for Mcdonough tourney - at least 3 from Crabs and 2 from Hawks. As luck would have it - Crabs most dominant player - who is aged for 9th grade - yes 2019. I could go on, but will stop there.

You are saying a 2022 was born in 2001? A 2019??

So only the Crabs and Hawks have holdbacks? Doubtful.

Compared to 3d, Madlax and other lax clubs who are simply buying clubs to get more fees, the Crabs are very pedestrian and conservative.


Yes, they are now invited to all the Crabs sponsored recruiting events which results into more $ more Ryan. They didn't get much new interest, still 2nd fiddle to MadLax


That's funny considering the crappy tournaments Madlax forces their youth teams to attend.

One crappy tournament you are correct the ones at Polo grounds. But Madlax always plays 4 tournaments or more and the other tournaments are always the best of the best for the top teams. This is a fact. I agree the Polo Grounds tournaments suck but the other 3 are always top of the top.


You are the biggest Madlax apologist on the planet. Do you have another day job?

No - talking about 2021 - Crabs have a player with July 2001 DOB - which would put him in 9th grade if not held back two years.

No - pretty much all teams have hold backs. Saying Crabs and Hawks 2021 have holdbacks who were born before the WSYL Cutoff of May 1, 2001 - so these hold backs will not be eligible for the Event - and their teams will look different as result. can't get around birth certificates

Crabs and Hawks are NOT the only 2021 teams to have holdbacks as previously posted. Bethesda definitely has a couple as does Green Turtle. Why only list two teams?
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Maryland, D.C., Virginia Fall 2015 Summer 2016 Lacrosse - 11/08/15 02:23 AM
Read the post. Says everyone has holdbacks...... further says that Crabs and Hawks have holdbacks that are ineligible to compete in WSYL Events....... because they are too old. Crabs and Hawks will not be able to run with their rosters intact - maybe it wont matter for them.

I did read the post. Yes. It does state "everyone " has holdbacks. The post then goes on to specifically point out Crabs/Hawks. Then "stops there". Let's see your body of work Sherlock Holmes. You "stopped there" because......... ? I am curious why you didn't list ALL the 2021 holdbacks for each team.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Maryland, D.C., Virginia Fall 2015 Summer 2016 Lacrosse - 11/08/15 07:54 AM
Because the guy got it wrong. According to the WSYL website, the cutoff is 5/1/2002 and must be in the class of 2021 or later.

Just out of curiosity... have holdbacks already started at this age? I was at Severn today and I can't believe there are that many 6th graders - 11 year old or just turning 12 this fall - who are 5'6 or taller. A few per team, but not that many...

It is called pre first..The made up grade between Kindergarten and 1st grade... Only private schools like McD. Boys Latin.

I apologize in advance if this has been discussed. In VA public schools, my understanding is you cannot participate in athletics if you are 19 years old prior to the school year. Is the rule different for private schools?

And then a portion of these pre first private school kids then hold back in 8th grade so are affectionately deemed double holdbacks. Just ask Crabs-it is their selling point and the only way they can win.

Some private schools have rules and some do not. The IAC stipulates that a kid can be 19 in the fall 12th grader, and a kid can't play more than 4 years in any HS league. I don't know if the extremes of this repeating grades means some kids can't play as seniors. My son's club had two kids who turned 16 in September of 9th grade, so have to assume that is ok to turn 19 Sept as a senior. I think the main reason why this is happening so much is it is being urged by the club and prep lacrosse people, which is a great way to hook in tuition paying families for 8th grade repeated through 12th. The part of the IAC rule that clinches this is the 4 year cap on high school sports participation. You can't repeat 10th or 11th as a transfer, have to do the "redshirt" year in 8th. This is an absolutely brilliant way for Bullis and Landon to rope in 5 year full payers. I keep hearing about gifted lacrosse players all being scholarshiped, but that makes no sense considering how small student body classes are. I don't believe that either school could stay solvent just waiving tuition for 10 kids in a class of 90-100 for lacrosse. I may be wrong, and that may be the case if the prep schools are as nutty as the parents. Anything is possible. The reshirting and private school trend in lacrosse is a fascinating study in tulip-mania. There's very little scholarship money in this sport, and even the admissions sponsorships from coaches are shaky of the kid doesn't have a strong grades and scores academic record. The UPenn and Princeton coaches have loved to brag about how he can get a 3.0 kid in when he really wants him, but both had three commits fail admissions last year. As a parent I'd be pretty bummed if my kid committed to Princeton and wound up at Loyola or Delaware. That trend has been happening quietly for a few years now.

A college coach told me something over the summer which I still get a laugh out of. For anyone who doesn't think that reclassifying is a Baltimore and a DMV disease, get this. Only 6 out of 20+ All-MIAA seniors were age eligible to try out for the USA U-19 team this past summer. Only 3 of the seniors who were All-IAC were age eligible to try out for the USA U-19 team. In 2012 more than half of the players who tried out had already played a year of college. In the USA U-19 team tryouts last summer there was only 3 out of 107 kids who had played a year of college. So it isn't just a DMV or a Baltimore disease, it is everywhere now. The same college coach told me that out of over 470 kids who applied to tryout for the USA U-19 team, over 180 were excluded after the applications were submitted for being over the age limit. The application required a birth certificate copy to confirm age eligibility. I guess that is also an indictment on how well these grade repeat All-Americans can read.

Well if your kid has a 3.0 you should not want him to go to UPenn anyway this is a set up for failure. I am aware the athletes get extra help but at schools like UPenn or Princeton this help is only help not people doing work for you like the football powers.

My worst fear as a parent would be my kid committing to a selective school as a 9th grader, and then the way it turns out he has a 3.6-3.7 and only above average scores. There are a lot of kids out there who have a 4.0 capability. I believe the kids who get the best grades work the hardest for their grades. Worst of all worlds is a scholarship school coach telling a non-revenue sport kid that he can get him in with a 3.xx. Or an Ivy coach stating that, whether it really is 3.0 or even 3.6. A 3.6 won't get any non-preferenced kid into a very selective school. I think a valid point is that coaches have some room, but not nearly as much as they think they do. The kids who didn't get into Princeton weren't lax bros, one our family knew had good grades, but not great grades. A 3.9 was definitely attainable but he was a 3.6 and didn't ace out any AP courses or tests. I am plenty familiar with "room", as I needed and got some as a recruited athlete a generation ago to a selective school D1 program. I did the "senior slide" spring of senior year and got 3 Bs and only 2 As, and that alone was not a big deal. I see it as a risk that a kid committed far in advance of senior year has the temptation to glide some and have a longer more mediocre academic record. I can appreciate that maybe the #1 and the #2 recruit can get a lot of room, but I rather doubt coaches at Penn or at Princetok can show up with a portfolio of 9 or 10 kids needing a lot or any room at all.

that's right - May 1, 2002 is cut off. Point the poster is trying to make is that Crabs and Hawks have boys who are too old for WSYL. This is based on the Rosters that were released for these teams - from the Macdonough Tournament. Bethesda does not have any boys born before this date - so entire roster eligible. GT has 2 boys - crabs have 3, but possibly more as some left DOB out, and Hawks have 1 with couple left off too.

Everyone now clear on this. And no - the rosters will not be posted on this site - just pointing out that for WSYL these squads will not be intact - for whatever that is worth - and crabs have a 9th grade ages boy on 7th grade team - which is absurd, but not a rule violation for grade based events.

Do you really think that the schools put the kids in prefirst for some "athletic advantage"? You think they know when they are 4 and 5 years old that A)The boy is going to play lacrosse, B)The boy is going to be good at lacrosse and C)The boy is going to stay at said school for 13 years?

These schools can charge what they do based on the colleges they send ALL OF THE STUDENTS to. Not just lacrosse players. Do you not think it behooves these institutions to allow the boys to wait to start kindergarten in terms of maturity? If this wasn't the case, why is this almost solely done with boys? McDonogh does not put many girls in pre-first and neither do the all girls schools. My son is an early September birthday. If he had been born 13 days earlier he would have started the year before. I love my son dearly, but he was in no way mature enough or ready to start school the year prior. I was lucky that he was in fact born in September so I didn't have to make that decision.

I agree with you on the 8th grade holdbacks. That is shameful. But to label a kid with a spring/summer birthday that was put in prefirst as a kid that had to go to prefirst because otherwise he couldn't compete on the field is irresponsible and smells of jealousy and envy.

To be pretty clear, my son is not a lacrosse verbal to a college. To also be clear, he's a top student who will apply to several selective schools in hopes of being admitted knowing it is competitive. And to be crystal clear, our world goes on regardless of where he does or doesn't get in. That's why kids apply to a range of colleges and not one. And yes, I have thought about it some that IF he were a lacrosse verbal to a college the worst of all worlds is he has a mindset of being headed somewhere and then that doesn't happen because he's not admitted. We saw this happen to a kid of a family we know well and it was just devastating for the kid. He had good but not great grades, and certainly not Ivy grades, so there will be plenty of people saying you get what is coming. But the point is he verbally committed and the coach never said anything but no worries kid. If my son got involved in the Ivy promises game from a coach, I don't think that would be real healthy. I think a charmed life is these kids being able to pick a college when they are ready and after they applied to several.

You may smell jealously and envy, but most of us smell something else. And most people could care less what you do with your child at a young age. But why is there a need to get an advantage MOST CHILDREN don't enjoy in YOUTH lacrosse.That is what this discussion is about, not if little private school johnny needs another year to mature for school. Even tho Privates schools seem to be loaded with children that aren't mature compared to the rare kindergarten child held back in the Public school system.And it isnt just a summer thing..Many kids held back in prefirst are born in months prior to summer. And if you think that many parents main reason is not to give their child an advantage you are misinformed and out of touch with reality. That advantage could fester in academics or sports.

You may smell jealously and envy, but most of us smell something else. And most people could care less what you do with your child at a young age. But why is there a need to get an advantage MOST CHILDREN don't enjoy in YOUTH lacrosse.That is what this discussion is about, not if little private school johnny needs another year to mature for school. Even tho Privates schools seem to be loaded with children that aren't mature compared to the rare kindergarten child held back in the Public school system.And it isnt just a summer thing..Many kids held back in prefirst are born in months prior to summer. And if you think that many parents main reason is not to give their child an advantage you are misinformed and out of touch with reality. That advantage could fester in academics or sports.

They say words like holding him back will give him a chance to excel. You are correct the pre first parent does not know his son is going to be a great lacrosse player. But once he becomes a Pre First his odds for being a great lacrosse player increase by 50% to 60%. Now with this new system he will player travel lacrosse at the old U9 age bracket but he will be a year older then all the kids. So he will play more and at the highest levels way sooner then ever before. With the old system he would have to play with his age kids tell 9th grade. So lets count U9 is what 2nd grade. That is 7 years more of playing with kids a full year and a half younger. So we can guess he will be starting and playing most of these travel high level games this whole 7 years. This is why us on age parents are a little upset. And have every right to not sit and take it. They play travel now with the kids Grad year not age if you all did not know.

There are thousands of posts back and forth here and on other threads. It all boils down to this: the prep schools don't have rules in regards to repeating grades, so there shouldn't be any problem with this issue insofar as prep school play is concerned. Public schools do have rules stating you can't reclassify for discretionary reasons. If you want that option, you have to go via a private school.

The clubs in this sport go by graduation years as well, and that makes lacrosse different from most other sports that are simply age based. I've never read anything that shows a good cause to be different and do grade based instead of age based youth teams. Many posters have also noted that college coaches do not care if a kid is old for his class, and may prefer it, which is fine. Posters noted that at clubs tournaments college coaches get both the age and the school year from the books issued and could not be confused about either. Since club lacrosse is not a school sport or a school league, why fight so hard against just doing age based teams like the other youth sports? The best players are still the best players, the best athletes are still the best athletes and everyone can read what grade a kid is in.

The point that always gets ignored is rec or club lacrosse is not a great big scholastic sport. It has literally nothing at all to do in any way with schools, school leagues or school rules and requirements. By the reasoning on this board, what would you do with a 16 year old who graduated young from high school? Tell him he can't play because he skipped grades on discretion instead of repeated them on discretion? That makes no sense.

You are incorrect. Many private leagues have rules about transfers and/or kids repeating grades. Many only allow kids to play 4 seasons of a sport (and some don't differentiate between JV and Varsity).

Some do not allow kids to repeat a grade at all. Some only allow transfers for kids of a certain grade and/or age.

Not everyone fits in your bucket.

Will someone please explain how people are continuing to re-class 9th grade and remain NCAA eligible? Are they in effect finished in 11th grade. If repeating 9th grade, the 11th grade first semester is the seventh semester for eligibility (see below). Is 12th grade the equivalent of a PG? year? Do they plan for a redshirt year to make up for not finishing four years after they started 9th grade the first time?

"Ten (10) core courses completed before the seventh semester; seven (7) of the 10 must be in English, math or natural/physical science. These courses/grades are "locked in" at start of the seventh semester (cannot be repeated for grade-point average [GPA] improvement to meet initial-eligibility requirements for competition)."

What about a kid that skips a grade? Now s/he has to play with older kids because academically they needed to be challenged?

I am correct as far as every single private league is concerned. Some do have a rule stating you can only play a high school sport 4 times. That is exactly why the 8th grade is most popular for kids in the IAC. If you play 9th grade at a public, you'd have 3 years left to play at an IAC school and some kids do sit out 9th grade reclassify year in order to do that. Then there is the rule you can't repeat a grade in the same league or lose a year to transfer in the same league, but nothing prevents a kid from transferring from an IAC to a WCAC or to go to a boarding school, which also happens a lot. The IAC has a no transfer rule for upperclass grades, but again nothing prevents movement between privates in any year between private schools in different leagues. The only IAC hard rule is you can't be 20 years old. There is an age cap. This isn't a blast on the IAC, same liberal maneuvers can be the case for an MIAA kid who has appetites to reclassify.

And this is the classic diversion away from the central question: how can it be argued that club or rec lacrosse is a scholastic sport? It has absolutely nothing to do with schools, private schools, private or public school leagues in any way whatsoever.

So again, is there a single reason to deem youth club or rec lacrosse a scholastic sport?

And you'd be wrong. I have a nephew who skipped a grade. When lacrosse went from age based teams to school year based ones a year ago he was literally a year younger than on aged classmates and 2+ years younger than the reclassified kids and he was overwhelmed and didn't make the two club teams he tried out for. On age he was a good enough player and athlete, the problem is he was absurdly young for his middle school grade. My brother asked both clubs if he could play down a grade year. They both said they'd never do that because it would screw up kids who were on-grade out of a roster spot in the recruiting. So basically my nephew was excluded out over the optic of recruiting needs to have these kids on grade only based and focused teams. This was an 7th grade team. Clubs don't want and exclude that circumstance to play down to be more age appropriate if very young for their grade. So my nephew quit lacrosse in middle school to try other sports. That's supposed to support the argument that grade based teams for non-scholastic sports makes sense? Sorry, that fails.

On the other hand I could be in the car for an hour going from Falls Church to a Ruth Chris in Tysons Corner. Might be better for a MoCo parent to just state playing for an elite club in Baltimore is a no-brainer versus driving over the Cabin John Bridge in traffic for any reason.

3D Atlantic can barely field a team but did win the B division....they don't belong on this list though. I would throw the 2020 Cavs team on there near the bottom...not a bad showing. 0-3 in the AA division, but at least they're playing up now.

I think the list (which is meaningless) was referring to teams in the DMV (although I wouldn't include Crabs and Hawks in that list). The person talking wasn't implying a national ranking.

I was there at that Madlax tournament. 3d should not be above either Madlax or VLC. They played in a B division and were not impressive at all. I would need to see VLC and Madlax either play more or go head to head before stating which is better.

Crabs are definitely far ahead of any team in this area.

How can you say this? How many of these teams have even played each other yet? Even changing 3-4 players can really change a team's dynamic. And many of these teams lost or gained more than that. I don't know that any one of them could win on any day at all. We will see.

This based on the spring and summer and a couple scrimmages this fall. Any other teams in the discussion? And of these teams out of the discussion?

These teams change tournament by tournament throughout the year so any time is just as good as any other to evaluate. It's not like someone is out there verifying rosters and ages.

That's not true. Hawks 2022 has a set roster. All kids are 6th grade. You can verify that.

Wrong!!! Crabs played FCA Blue and won 12-1. Team 91 beat FCA blue 10-2. Team 91 also played FCA white. Crabs only played FCA blue. Nice try though

1. Crabs
2. Next Level
3. 3d Mid-Atlantic
4. Madlax Capital
5. Hawks
6. VLC
7. Roughriders
8. Bethesda
?. Club Blue
?. Cannons


FCA Blue, Looneys Orange, 91 Force all in same tier as Crabs

Thunder, 91 Platnum, Looneys Green, FCA White would all be competitive with 6-10 on your list. Heard Koopers 2020 was improved


Koopers, while having many talented players, would really really have to improve to be able to compete with the top 5 in Baltimore area. Last year Koopers struggled with Looney's Green, FCA White and Breakers White (now 91 Platnum).

I think this reflects reality through the fall so far:

1. Crabs
2. Hawks
3. Next Level
4. Madlax Capital
4. 3d Mid-Atlantic
6. VLC
7. Roughriders
8. Bethesda
?. Club Blue
?. Cannons



Based on what? 3-10 are not even in the same class as Looneys Orange, FCA Blue or 91 Force who you left off the list. These clubs second tier A/AA teams could beat most of the teams on this list.

For 2021 you have to add Koopers. They beat Crabs pretty easily the past few years
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Maryland, D.C., Virginia Fall 2015 Summer 2016 Lacrosse - 11/16/15 12:23 AM
2021 Hawks looked good this weekend although Bitmore was beating them at half and then was man down for over 8 minutes in 2nd half which ultimately cost them.

No, they are not. But your obsession with that club is bizarre. Nobody - including their parents - talks about them on this board except a couple dads from your club.

The Madlax 2018 team has fallen apart. Several weak, uninspiring performances this fall. They have been consistently right below Crabs and other top 2018 teams, but it seems like they stopped playing after their top 4-5 guys committed.

The obsession is odd, especially since VLC parents never post here. Unless you're a Crabs parent or Looneys parent, go ahead and call yourselves B teams also in that case ;-)

This is the same pattern from the "top 2017" DMV teams and players. A good number of the top players and teams from 8th grade or 9th grade have fallen off, not performing and lack a real competitive passion. Not just a Madlax thing. When these kids get set up to believe the only thing that counts and is the ultimate credential is committing to a college very young, they buy in to that and this happens a lot.

Well that is how this thing kinda works. Also you have to remember that most of Madlax top players go to top Private schools. And these top private schools are playing more and more fall and summer tournaments. And I think the parents of the kids who have not picked a college like when the top guys are not there. More time for their kid to be seen. Madlax plays a full schedule every summer and fall. Which is great if you are still looking for a school. But when a school picks you its better to play less and practice more. There is not a easy answer or plan.

You are right about exactly the way club lacrosse works. Kind of sad but they are just college promotion concierge services now. I miss the days when the more important thing was competing to do something distinguished and win, not to get noticed. This is also the reason why prep lacrosse at the local top schools is degrading...the prep coaches are stuck taking a lot of time to unwind the club "individual showcase skill set" that is wired into these kids. Pretty soon it will be why bother to even play in college when you get there? The only greatest thing is this commit status game, and after that the passion for competition goes down. Just doing wall ball and cardio every day does nothing to nurture or develop mental toughness and competitive grit. It is no small wonder so many highly regarded early teens don't develop in high school and then never see the field in college.

Well the best quote I have ever heard is "If playing Lacrosse gets him into Blank college I do not care if he quiets after the first practice."

Well as we all can agree on if the FOGO is winning 100% of the faceoffs its hard to make it a game if the rest of the team are even close in skill.

I don't think any less of a kid or a parent who uses lacrosse to get into a school they would otherwise not get into. But rationally speaking, look at the 30 or so not so selective colleges out there for D1 lacrosse and consider what kind of student your son would be to need lacrosse to get him in. Several of them are colleges that accept 65%-85% of the applicant pool. That means if you are a qualified student and can pay, you're in. Getting all excited about being committed for lacrosse is just a lacrosse ambition. Then you have to go to school and be happy there too.

I just look at this whole thing as a way to keep my kid focused and out of trouble. Teenage boys need a road map to move through life. Us adults know that the lacrosse road really does not have big pay off at the end. But we also know that this road will get them past all the bad exit ramps on the way through high school. If my son misses the party where he gets a girl pregnant because he had to leave early for a lacrosse tournament I count that as a parenting win.

I don't think olaying less is the answer. If you commit in 9th grade and only play 12 school games a year , and think you will be preheated for D1 lacrosse , you are mistaken. You need to continue playing at the highest level.

My point is Landon and the others play at least a fall and summer tournament. Then if the kid does a showcase or camp like thing. He will and can miss a couple Madlax tournaments. Which is why to got back the older Madlax teams fall off a little. The Hot bed teams are cutting D1 kids early on so they can bring them on late in the game and not miss a beat. NOVA is not that deep so when the firt line of D1 kids slow down due to early recruiting the fill ins are not as good.

Go fight the holdback and reclass fight that is a real problem not the Madlax owner. He has been exposed we all know he is a little crazy. But the teams and other coaches are good to great and no team in NOVA plays more at all the good to great tournaments.

Gonzaga
Bullis
Paul VI
Severn
Severna Park
Churchill
Landon School
Madlax Nationals
East Coast Showcase Team #1
East Coast Showcase Team #2

If you ask the people whose kids have played for him, or people who've coached against him, or people who've dealt with him, I think they wouldn't use the words "a little crazy".

You are an amazing apologist.

Wow, talk about a hater. Keep your venom for the silly club ball arguments. Lax power had Landon, Gonzaga and Prep in the top 10, and the Hill Academy was a top 20 program no one wanted to play. The rest of the field is also strong. Great tourney, also the NHSLS the day before should be even better.

I agree with everything you wrote up until "NHSLS should be even better." Really, 4 top teams in US at Landon (how many D1s just among those 4 teams) and you think NHSLS is better?!

yes, because there are better teams at the NHSLS. Are you really trying to argue against that? Last I checked the MIAA was a better conference than the IAC.

It's not a question of whether the MIAA is better than the IAC. Both tournaments have several excellent teams entered. Both are good events for recruiters and fans to watch.

I agree, but someone balked at the idea that Saturday at BL and RPCS was not a better collection of teams than Sunday at Landon. I'd put BL, McDonogh, St. Pauls, Calvert Hall, Gilman and MSJ above the collection of DC teams.

Final 2015 National Rankings below--where are any MIAA schools listed?


1 Haverford School
2 Landon
3 Gonzaga
4 Victor
5 Bridgewater-Raritan
6 Hun School
7 Syosset
8 Darien
9 Brunswick School
10 Georgetown Prep

If I am located somewhere halfway between the two venues, like Columbia, MD, I would rather drive south to see 3 top ten teams at Landon.....

First of all, the national "rankings" are an art, not a science. Second, those teams are not the same teams right now. Some teams are better, some are worse.

NHSLS has a lot of great teams, many of whom are in the MIAA.

The Madlax one has a lot of great teams, many of whom are in the IAC or WCAC.

Arguing which is better is pointless.

So once again real crazy is when someone hits/kills/tackles any of these things are full crazy. He wrote a bad email or two lol but if you are leaving what should you care about a email. He yells on the sideline but he is correct with what he is saying and when the kids do what he is yelling about they do better and win. The club has been around sense 1996 and its just as strong or stronger then it ever has been. He is not raising my son. He is just the coach and owner of his club lacrosse team. If this was a college coach maybe you would have a point but even if your kid is on the team he is coaching at the time they have 1 or 2 mins of alone talking time not on the field during the game for a complete season. The other coaches are all great guys and spend time and talk to the boys about life and all that. So once again this is not a pastor or mayor we are talking about its a club owner.

It wasn't just an email or two. He's done the same thing to many different kids and families. And why else do you think he's been fired from every coaching job he's ever had?

Ask some families with older kids and they'll tell you stories.

The national rankings are a joke, after the first three. The MIAA schools beat up on each other and get penalized for it. Numbers 4-9 on the list would all have losing records in the MIAA. Most of these schools play patsy schedules and get challenged once or twice.

I have heard every story twice. He is mean to people on his bad side got it. He is a baby got it. But the product is way above avg. and we play great lacrosse at a very high level. I am sure the owner of Wegmans is a jerk and crazy but I do not care I like the cheese and great meats.

No, you have not heard every story. You are living in a bubble, posting multiple times a day on this forum, looking for any mention of Madlax.

If Madlax works for you, then I guess you have to find ways to justify paying/playing for a guy who treats people like garbage. Can't wait till he turns on you and you admit you were wrong all along.

Please tell me the reason he turns on people. I think the first and main reason is when people leave. So if I decide to leave and he is mad I am cool with it.>>>>>>>>>>>>> I left so who cares if he is mad. This is how things work like when your EX girlfriend left you and you where crying and calling her names its like that.

Have you ever heard anyone say Blackwolf is not a great club. But you must AGREE they are a Sandbagging club who just emails all the other clubs great players who where taught and developed by another program. I agree they have great players but 99% of those players play at elite private high schools. So they use Blackwolf to play a couple extra high level tournaments a year and then go back and put in the real work with their elite high school team. Also how many kids total play for Blackwolf at a given time. This is a guess but lets say 60 kids for the whole program. So this number leaves tons of great players with a need for a place to play. So what I am saying is you can not compare Blackwolf to any other program. They develop stud players into what a little bit better stud players. With the 5 tournaments if that and 20 practices over a 12 month time frame.

Hill -- really depends what players they bring. I am guessing it will be their JV team and their freshmen team. None of the preps here would be able to give Hill varsity a good game. Hill JV vs Landon, Gonzaga, Prep would be a good game.

Earlier the Hun School was entered here. I guess they dropped out -- they'd have been an excellent competition for the tournament and is too bad they are not coming.

My son is on one of the showcase teams at the bottom. We are just hoping he makes it in one peace and plays well. As a public school kid this is a real chance to play the best of the best and see where he stands.

Me ball city. Geez, you'd think the club and HS coaches would figure out after watching Hill's JV team pick Landon apart that it is kinda a good idea to move the ball around. This was like watching an NBA all star game the level of team play was so low.

Must only be a matter of time until all these D1 coaches think to themselves on the drive home about what a disaster early recruiting in the DMV has been. When the 10-15 best players in the fields at this tournament are all Hill 8th 9th and 10th graders, it beggars for some reflection.

Ok I hear you but how is this Madlaxs fault? I think all showcases have MEE ball issues heard from the parents in Philly they said same issue. As for bringing to one school 12 very very good high school teams how is this bad for Madlax and the college coaches coming
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Maryland, D.C., Virginia Fall 2015 Summer 2016 Lacrosse - 11/22/15 11:02 PM
Yeah, your right. Putting together 4 pick up teams and charging those families a showcase event fee and then rolling a ball out for those teams to go 0-12 and get out scored 153-15 is just biz as usual for Madlax. Jesus, if you think there were 12 very very good teams there today, you either weren't there or have something in common with Stevie Wonder. It was a disgrace Madlax took the money grab that far down.

I thought the tournament was a bit of an eye opener in that Hill brought only their JV and freshmen teams and we're still able to wipe everybody out. The other major takeaway is the public schools at this tournament and the Madlax Nationals team which was mostly a collection of local public school kids more than held their own today. We are exponentially closer to parity between public and prep teams, which is great for the sport of lacrosse in the DMV. The game has grown and there are top local players staying put at their public schools more than before. Perhaps one of the casualties of the early recruiting are the expensive prep schools for lacrosse. No reason to go to them and spend all that money if recruiting goes well without that.

Well the Hun school dropped out at the last min. Which is not a good look for them. So for the tournament to work correctly they took 4 teams worth of players from the showcase not 2 teams. I think the showcase teams would of done a lot better if they only took the top 44 players which was the original plan. And I would like you to come back to this list of 12 high schools when the preseason national rankings come out. And the state rankings I am going to guess these teams will all be on this list. In some way. This is a off season event please tell me what you would of done better. Only Bit** about a plan if you have a better one to share!
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Maryland, D.C., Virginia Fall 2015 Summer 2016 Lacrosse - 11/23/15 12:52 PM
That is not an accurate statement. That Hill team may have been just their JV guys, maybe a combination of guys. But they played in 3 games, so you can't say they wiped everybody out. Landon was far from impressive, but they - like everyone else - were missing guys. It would have been interesting to see them play Gonzaga or Bullis.

Public schools in VA have gotten better, but there still is a huge gap between the top privates and top publics.

Landon will have a tough time replacing the players they graduated. If yesterday was any indicator they will need to seriously improve on d and in goal to win their conference.

Landon will be fine. May not finish at #2 in US like last year but solid top ten team with only 2 seniors who will play all that much in 2016. Look for them to be a top nationally ranked team for the next 3 or 4 years given what's in the pipeline.

Are you seriously unaware that the prep schools recruit for sports? How many of the football and basketball players do you think could afford to go to those schools?

I have no idea. I rather thought that at schools where there are less than 100 boys in a class at a school that costs a fortune to run that enabling 5-10 lacrosse and then 10-15 football and then 3-4 basketball recruits a year would...I don't know, maybe CHEAPEN the school? I get it that some local preps have top football teams or basketball. Seems like a dopey investment unless it stokes up alumni giving like for a college. I went to a prep school and couldn't imagine being someone decades removed from high school giving a flying $&&@ about the sports team rankings or record, or using that to make a determination on donating money. I guess this is why I just don't get it with the whole recruiting for high school think. Makes no economic sense for the schools.

Not sure what Prep school you went to, but at least in Baltimore, you couldn't be more off base. The amount of Alumni that comes to every football and lacrosse game is amazing. The schools send out weekly alumni emails with results of all the sports team that week. Have you been to a McDonogh vs Gilman football game? To a BL vs St Pauls football game? To a BL vs St. Pauls lacrosse game. Any game between Loyola and Calvert Hall?

Why do you think Heyward Bey personally put in lights at McDonogh's football field? Why do you think that Gilman just put in a new turf field for football? Where do you think the multi-million endowments at these schools come from?

Well, all of that is some news to me. Kind of shocked over that really, but I do believe you there. The DMV preps I am not so sure raise those millions over the sports alums enthusiasm. Baltimore is an odd one.

Not sure what Prep school you went to, but at least in Baltimore, you couldn't be more off base. The amount of Alumni that comes to every football and lacrosse game is amazing. The schools send out weekly alumni emails with results of all the sports team that week. Have you been to a McDonogh vs Gilman football game? To a BL vs St Pauls football game? To a BL vs St. Pauls lacrosse game. Any game between Loyola and Calvert Hall?

Why do you think Heyward Bey personally put in lights at McDonogh's football field? Why do you think that Gilman just put in a new turf field for football? Where do you think the multi-million endowments at these schools come from?


Spot on..There is a reason that these Baltimore small enrollment schools have such great sports team..It isnt only the food they fed them there.. One of downsides is that after paying 9 years of full tuition and you are ready for son or daughter to play varsity...They bring in a stud or studesss on a scholarship who will never let you start the rest of your time at school. And that does happen as I have talked to several pissed off parents... But oh well the Alumni get to watch top talent.

Well that makes my day the rich guy who paied 30K a year for middle and high school for his kid. Had his son beat out for Varsity by a poor kid from DC. Let me think if I am going to lose any sleep over this. This is the most white privilege statement I have ever read. Your kid will get Millions when you die. I think he will live sitting on the bench because the poor kid is better.

Might be better if lacrosse goes to the academy soccer model where the kids in that system don't play for their schools. Kids who want it and parents who will pay all out for it can go and focus on that and get what they want out of the sport. To spend $30K on a private school for 4 or 13 years should be for reasons other than a sport. And the other poster is right, high school sports like lacrosse shouldn't be sullied by recruiting basically carving kids out of the sport at their schools. If alums base their contributions to a prep school based in the sports teams, that explains a lot. The endowments at MIAA schools aren't very high, the college matriculations from those schools is weak (for a laugh look at BL's over the last 5-10 years), and it seems to me pretty close to 100% of MIAA grads return to Baltimore after college...mostly because better professional careers aren't awaiting them elsewhere. Do you guys like to sit at the bar in Mt Washington talking about the team of '78? Cougars love that. Not.

Force routinely beat FCA as Breakers and beat them again this fall at the Hill school. They tied Hawks this year, beat Rising Sons and tied Express. Did not get to play Looneys and the King Crabby wouldnt allow them to play In Autumn Classic and he has campaigned against them in this area and probably won't invite them to Crabfeast despite them playing Young Guns last year and being more competitive than the majority of teams playing.

Keeping with your point, he should be looking at the team itself and not concentrating so much on the 91 on the jersey as if he is knowledgeable as he claims to be, he must be well aware that they are the same players and coaches as Breakers 2020AA from last year. Could be a more personal issue with the team/Club.

No 91MD might have more to do with Aloha tournaments being RMs partner for Autumn Classic. Breakers is owned by aloha and 91MD pilfered most of their players from Breakers. So 91 no so welcome in those events

No, it's true about aloha tournaments owning Breakers and Team 91 Md taking most of Breakers players and Crabs many times partners with Aloha for tournaments. What I would really like to see is all teams not attend any tournament sponsored by Crabs, even go so far as to create another competing tournament for the same dates. I doubt other teams would do this but this is one approach to put a stop to how fat Crab Daddy rigs his tournaments in his favor. It would have to start with other top 10 strong teams boycotting crab daddy events and go elsewhere to play. Probably the only team who would attend is Edge, but can you imagine a tournament with only Crabs and Edge playing. It probably will never happen but it would be nice to see.

The real answer to that is what level is your son AA,A or B and how old is he. If you think he will be a AA level player in 8th grade and up. You should be asking for the best clubs with in a hour drive. Young travel parents pick a time when their son is young by witch one is the closet drive. Most of the time they are upset with something about the club. I say 20min extra drive for practice to the correct club is worth it long term every time. I think after you answer these questions people can help you better.

Perhaps not helpful to lob in a suggestion from afar and doubt they need players, but Greene Turtle has a AA 2021 team that seems to do things right and seems to be based on your side of town. I'm a 2021 coach and I think it's absolutely imperative to put in-season sports first and lacrosse behind basketball, football and hockey, etc. On principle, of course, as I think any A or AA player has to be a good enough athlete to play other sports at a high level, but also there is no question it makes them better lacrosse players (particularly basketball).

Just checked Crabs website, for Crab Feast 2016 Team 91 is listed as attending in all four divisions, 2017 to 2020. I really don't think it is Crabs blocking Team 91, it is Aloha Tournaments, which as stated owns Breakers and Team 91 raided the players. At times Aloha and Crabs jointly sponsor a tournament and this is when Team 91 is not invited, like the Aloha Autumn Tournament last month in Md. And no, I am far from a Crabs fan, just stating what is going on. I don't think crab daddy would block Team 91, it is extra money for him.

True, a lot of clubs do tis in their own tournament but not to the extent that Crabs does. Just look at the Aloha Autumn Tournament last month, especially the 2020 division and look who Crabs had to play to get to the semi finals. It was very obvious to everyone as soon at they saw the schedule. This is the division crab daddy has his team (even though it is really close to a 2019 team) and he does this all the time. Nothing new but not to the extent that Ryan M takes it.

Thunder is only option I'm aware of in Harford Co. They do a good job. Not "AA" at most levels but solid A. Mavericks is HS counterpart. For very top team you'll need to drive into balt co where there are a myriad of options.

True, a lot of clubs do tis in their own tournament but not to the extent that Crabs does. Just look at the Aloha Autumn Tournament last month, especially the 2020 division and look who Crabs had to play to get to the semi finals. It was very obvious to everyone as soon at they saw the schedule. This is the division crab daddy has his team (even though it is really close to a 2019 team) and he does this all the time. Nothing new but not to the extent that Ryan M takes it.



Just looked at the schedule you noted. Aloha does the same thing for the Breakers. Madlax does the same thing for their teams in their tournaments.

Plenty of things to bash the Crabs about, but this isn't one of them.

I have a son and nephews who play on various Looney teams. All their coaches honor in season sports and support the kids to participate in other sports. The coaches however, expect 100% commitment during the lax season spring/summer.

Sure it is, but not bashing, just stating what is obvious. Crabs 2020 won 9-0, 15-0 and 14-0 against Md Roughriders, AR Pittsburg and Harvest Lax. This is what Ryan M does all the time, he wants very little competition in his tournaments a clear shot to the finals.

Just Google "aloha autumn classic" and when you get to website click on schedules and Sunday Nov 14, 2015. That lists the schedules and scores for 2020 thru 2023 divisions.

did they set Looney's up as well? They didn't have a close game until the final.

it is Aloha Tournaments, which as stated owns Breakers and Team 91 raided the players. At times Aloha and Crabs jointly sponsor a tournament and this is when Team 91 is not invited, like the Aloha Autumn Tournament last month in Md. And no, I am far from a Crabs fan, just stating what is going on. I don't think crab daddy would block Team 91, it is extra money for him.[/quote]

Just checked the website and the 91 team you mention is a NY 91 team -not Team 91 MD which is who we heard he has blocked from Crabfeast despite the fact that the team attended last years Young Guns as Breakers . Sounds like he is preventing the other AA teams, including ours, from having an opportunity to play another top level team due to a personal issue.

I don't think so, Looney's had easy games against two teams, MDX and LA Heat. LA Heat is not, at least at this point, an AA team and were outclassed in all games but they tried. The third team, Madlax Capital was suppose to be a fairly strong team but if it was that team didn't show up that day. If you notice, Crabs and Ryan M clearly avoided Edge and the only time they would have seen Edge is if Edge was successful in the semis, which they weren't. I know all teams try to make a fairly easy path in their own tournaments, but not at the level that Ryan M and his 2020 team does.

Could be a more personal issue with the team/Club.


No 91MD might have more to do with Aloha tournaments being RMs partner for Autumn Classic. Breakers is owned by aloha and 91MD pilfered most of their players from Breakers. So 91 no so welcome in those events



That would be a good thing and then we can expect to be able to play them at Non Aloha tournaments and CrabFeast if your reasoning is the true reason and it is not just Crabby trying to make things difficult for another local Club.


No, it's true about aloha tournaments owning Breakers and Team 91 Md taking most of Breakers players and Crabs many times partners with Aloha for tournaments. What I would really like to see is all teams not attend any tournament sponsored by Crabs, even go so far as to create another competing tournament for the same dates. I doubt other teams would do this but this is one approach to put a stop to how fat Crab Daddy rigs his tournaments in his favor. It would have to start with other top 10 strong teams boycotting crab daddy events and go elsewhere to play. Probably the only team who would attend is Edge, but can you imagine a tournament with only Crabs and Edge playing. It probably will never happen but it would be nice to see.


Does anyone have an answer on whether Crabs has invited Team 91 Md to play Crab Feast or whether the talk is true that he is trying to make it difficult in their region for them and not allowing them access to events he is involved with? [/quote]

I think they have. Most of the top teams will be there

That statement makes no sense-keeping with that logic, no local teams would be invited and supports that he has an issue with just one team. And if not mistaken, it is the same team informally ranked here as top 10 and tied Crabs 2020 as Breakers losing in OT last year at Beach even after Crabs brought in their 2019s. Just be nice to have all the top 2020 teams in one location for once and not have tournaments and kids influenced by one man.

If this is said on the sideline of a B Level team the Parents of kids who are A or AA level feel bad and stuck to stay playing with this team or they will upset most likely local fellow parents. If this is said on a AA team sideline it implies please do not bring any other really good kids to play on this team or we will be upset with you for breaking up this great group. Well I just wanted to hear others thoughts about this Quote I am sure everyone has heard many times

Looneys had easy games as well - all of the divisions were unbalanced unfortunately. One division should have been Crabs, Looneys, Legacy, and Leading Edge or Edge. As it was, Red was a cake walk for Looneys, Blue was no challenge for Crabs, Yellow was a joke for Edge - at least in Green Leading Edge and Legacy were very comparable in talent. LA Heat should have saved their airfare for sure - it was clear that there were two classes of teams there that day, probably should have been an AA and an A grouping.

You mentioned Team 91 Md that you believe Crab/Ryan M is blocking from Crabfeast 2016 and your team is also being blocked. What is the name of your team that Ryan M is blocking? Is it another Md AA team?

Reading your posts is very difficult due to the lack of punctuation, poor grammar, awful diction, etc. It has nothing to do with a high brow education. It's about being able to converse in a manner that people can understand.

you guys are douches

to answer the question: i don't think parents desire to keep a good group of kids together is the the root of all evil. my experience is that it becomes really difficult over time to keep the same kids together. some kids get better, others plateau. Some parents care more about winning than others. Some coaches will seek out the best players and bounce a kid that's been on the team. Others have more loyalty and the parents the care deeply about winning then encourage the kid to go elsewhere. end of the day hopefully the kids are having fun and growing as athletes

I agree the desire to keep a team together is 99% of the time coming from a good place. I just wanted to highlight the issues that come from this for all the different parents. I think us parents like most people do a bad job of putting yourself in others shoes. I try to be happy for other kids success and I try to push other parents to do whats best for their son even if its going to hurt my son or his team. Ok let me go back and check my grammar and spelling so I do not offend anyone with my lack of education.

Don't let the grammar police get under your skin. First, it's an online forum. Second, by my read, four out of five of your grammar critics used the wrong grammar or punctuation.

To your question, I'm a travel coach of a team with AA, A and B players. As long as the kids are having fun, improving during practice, being challenged in games and becoming close friends - which they are - I think the virtues of keeping the team together outweigh the benefits of jumping to a AA team. [I would ask the grammar police to please note that I intentionally did not use the serial comma and prefer spaces before and after my dashes when used for a parenthetical phrase (despite the fact the rule is no spaces) and that "an" would be incorrect before "AA". Please also note how I flaunt American convention on putting the period within the quotation marks when I am referring to a specific word in this manner.]

My son is a AA player. It would be fun for him to play in an offense of a AA team, but we are not going to stress about making that happen. If your son's goal is to get a DI scholarship, I would think moving to a AA team would make sense, as would being held back a year.

I assume any early-maturing 6'2" stud with 4.5 speed is going to be fine either way.

It's sad that so many top programs fill their recruiting classes before the players have even played their sophomore season of lacrosse. Most don't even include juniors in their prospect days. If you are really good player but a late maturer and don't play the reclass, recruiting club and showcase game, you are on the outside looking in.

Thanks for fighting the grammar police with me I enjoyed that. I agree with lots of what you said. But I feel like the money and time commitment is close to the same for a B team as it is a AA team. So my thought would be it is better for all players if the AA players played for AA teams. Because your AA son is having fun he in theory is taking time from a B or A player on the field playing the correct skill level. In a NVYLL style system no one would want a top A player playing on a C team. This is REC kinda of but still has try outs for a reason.

US Lacrosse endorsed recent actions by the menís and womenís coaches associations and urged the NCAA to adopt legislative proposals that restrict the recruiting calendar, including all communication between a coach and prospect, to after Sept.1of a prospectís junior year of high school. The Intercollegiate Menís Lacrosse Coaches Association voted Friday to support proposals forwarded to the NCAA three months earlier by the Intercollegiate Womenís Lacrosse Coaches Association that ban college coaches from any contact with prospects before that time. The IWLCA proposals are being considered by the NCAAís student-athlete experience committee.

A similar proposal was presented to the NCAA a few years ago and the NCAA took no action. I am hopeful that this time they step up and make this proposal the official guideline for recruiting. With both the college men's and women's coaches and US Lacrosse endorsing this proposal hopefully the NCAA will realize the importance of eliminating early recruiting and if they do adopt this that the NCAA put some "teeth" for violations of early recruiting. Without any strong penalties for violations, early recruiting will continue. Many 13 and 14 year olds are looking at where they want to go to high school let alone putting pressure on them to decide where they want to go to college. From what I have been told early recruiting is running rampant in football and basketball so this is why I am skeptical that they will endorse this proposal for lacrosse but I am hoping it will be adopted. At this point I sometimes feel the NCAA doesn't really care about this but if the "powers to be" in lacrosse make them care it will be adopted.

I do not think early recruiting will ever be a issue with Football and Basketball. If you look at the who signed/ verbal ed lists for those two sports I see no Sophomore football players and very few Basketball players. Lacrosse is the leaders in this problem Maryland just hit 13 for 2019 I would call that classed closed for them?

It's early in the Box season, but the best team in the Goals Baltimore league are looking to be:

5th/6th - Rough Riders 2022
7th/8th - Team 91 or Hawks 2020 - This league is really tough.

Box is a joke and by no means an indicator of success at the field game. The majority of these teams athletes are involved in other sports during winter, as they should be. The best 2020 team isn't even playing. While it can sharpen those with marginal skills in certain ways, its not a recipe or substitute for the real thing. Who cares who wins the goals box league? The same people who care about the NFL exhibition season. The parallels between the 2 are striking.

I agree that box is for fun and most of these players are involved in other winter sports. Who are you referring to as the best team is not even playing in this box league? If you are referring to Crabs you do not know what you are talking about. Crabs 2020 is at least a 2019 team and at times close to a 2018 team with so many holdbacks. That is the Ryan M way of doing things.

You must be a Team 91 parent. Or should we call them Team 15, which is more fitting since the majority of the them should be in 9th grade. Parents have no class and no surprise either do their kids. Just listen to them mouth off at the games.

Completely wrong, not a 91 parent. Just want to know who the one poster feels the best 2020 team is that is not playing. The only two I can think of who feel their team is the best is Crabs or Madlax. So since I said something about Crabs you must be a Crabs parent, given you shot back that I must be a 91 parent. Crab parents are just, if not more, obnoxious. Crabs won't play in this league, it would expose to everyone how old their 2020 players are and as you know they just keep saying we have no holdbacks when in fact their 2020 team is loaded with them, some will be close to 16 by the spring. So who is it that is not playing, crab daddy's 2020's.

Crabs 2020 has 4-5 holdbacks. Nobody is close to be a 2018 kid. Keep hating just because they are better.

Not hating anyone or anything, just stating what seems to be known, yet Crabs will never release the birth dates of its players on 2020. There are more than 4-5 holdbacks on 2020 and 1 or 2 will be close to 16 by next spring/summer. No one in lacrosse feels or thinks they are better. With Crabs having many holdbacks on their 2020 team and play mostly age appropriate 2020 teams and beat them, that doesn't mean crap, its older players beating younger players. It is Ryan M way of doing things so he can look like a great lax coach, which he isn't. Look at what happened to Crabs 2020 this past summer in Vail, when they had to play age appropriate kids and couldn't bring their holdbacks, they got beaten badly. That shows how weak Crabs 2020 is without their holdbacks. So just keep thinking they are better if that makes you happy.

Box is a joke? Canada has won the last 3 international championships. And Canadian high school Hill School recently defeated the u19 Mens National team.

The league is fun for the boys and helps develop skills which absolutely benefit them outside

1. Why the hate for Crabs? Teams like Madlax and Duke's have many more holdbacks

2. Like it or not, the world is grade based, so the birthdays don't matter.

Again, no hate for Crabs, just stating that they have the most holdbacks, no other team comes close. Realize the present rules are grade based, and no other team abuses this than Ryan M and Crabs, especially 2020. He is the leader in holdbacks, like it or not and you can either deny it or admit it and live with it. Birthdays would simply show how many holdbacks Crabs 2020 really has. When other teams loose to Crabs they do not consider it a loss, it is simply older kids playing against younger kids. If Crabs had no holdbacks they would not be a strong team. Don't hate them, I don't hate kids, just find it disgusting how Ryan M abuses the system like no other team does. Then he brags how great his team is and how he is a great coach.

Do the math -at least two, if not three, Crabs did a pre 1st and then held back in middle school which age wise puts them in 2018 if they were to follow public school guidelines. Add them to all the others who would not meet age guidelines and the team is by far the oldest in the 2020 age group except maybe Edge who openly recruits a full year older for each age group.

Hawks dad, be glad you won and let it go at that. Yes, it is box and for fun and nobody really cares who won/lost in this box league, the real test is in the spring/summer. I have been to many lax games and sat with parents of many different teams and you know what, they all act the same, especially if their team is behind or lost. No reason to pick on Looney's parents. No, I am not connected to Looney's in any way, just saying fans are fans and their behavior is similar. None of them act like they are watching tennis at Wimbledon.

LOL. When your kids are in HS, juniors or seniors they will not remember this game. The parents are making themselves look like lunatics. This is true for many lacrosse parents not just Looneys or Hawks. These parents should realize the parents actions will be remembered long after the score of these games are forgotten. Your reputation can take a life time to build up but only one action can ruin it for many years to come.

Didn't have all your players, must be tired because of the holidays, etc. Not every teams parents behave the same - so - don't give me that nonsense. How about they lost because the other team played better. Maybe next time the Loonies will win. Who knows - but enough with excuses.

OMG, if you are a FCA parent, then you have no reason to say anything about another teams parents, FCA parents are near the top for being whiney little girls. Team 91 parents are just plain outright rude. Been around this game a long time and have seen many teams and how the parents act. It is a shame, let the kids play and win or loose, be respectful of others and control your actions. What many don't understand, a college coach recruiting will quickly back of a prospect if they see the parent(s) acting like jerks. I have seen it happen and know of a few kids who lost out due to this. A college coach doesn't want or need this, and I can't blame them. And again, bud, not giving excuses but it is winter box lacrosse, and who really cares. Did a little research and see the Looney's beat Hawks Green this past fall in the field game. That carries more weight but I don't care that much, I am not associated with Looney's or Hawks.

All parents from all teams are crazy and say and think crazy things. Some years some teams have 3 or 4 more crazy on a given team. But to say any one club is crazy and your club is not will just end up with PIE in your face before you know it.

The best 2020 team isn't even playing. While it can sharpen those with marginal skills in certain ways, its not a recipe or substitute for the real thing. Who cares who wins the goals box league? The same people who care about the NFL exhibition season. The parallels between the 2 are striking.


Box is a joke? Canada has won the last 3 international championships. And Canadian high school Hill School recently defeated the u19 Mens National team.

The league is fun for the boys and helps develop skills which absolutely benefit them outside


Box is different than field. Both are great games. All games matter to the kids (& family) playing in those games. The 2020 division of this Box league is very competitive. The winner of this championship will have really accomplished something.

Just did some checking, I guess Looney's parents were pleased when Looney's beat Hawks 15 -3 in the Mid Atlantic Fall Showdown this past November. That, in my opinion, has much more significance than a winter fun box league. And notice how Looney's is spelled. Again, I have no connection with either team, but I find it amusing that Hawks parent or friend keeps posting how great this win was and then goes on trashing the parents. Why not just enjoy your win and be done with it. I do not remember seeing any mention this past November about anyone bragging about the Looney's win, in a field game none the less, where it really counts. Enjoy your Holiday and let the kids play and leave the parents out of it.

No skippy, all you need to do is look up previous tournaments to get scores. Taking it way too seriously really seems to be your hangup bunkyboy. Must be Hawks fool.

NYPLL has been around longer and was started by and for clubs that required a full-time commitment and kids dropped their rec teams. Howard County was started a few years ago to coexist with rec but most teams have morphed into club-only. The top teams in both league are comparable but NYPLL has more AA teams. Hoco has more total teams and will have up to 3 levels at some grades. All games are at Howard Co turf fields.
NYPLL travel from N Baltimore to No VA to Annapolis...

How can it mean anything when most teams don't have a good majority of players available. Some teams can't even get a goalie to play and use another teams goalie for games. This is purely for keeping a stick in the players hands through the winter, nothing more.

box is a different game from field. anyone with a clue knows that. teams that are good at one aren't always good at the other. look at team usa for instance
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Maryland, D.C., Virginia Fall 2015 Summer 2016 Lacrosse - 12/23/15 08:18 PM
Great box players are always great field players. Great field players are not by default good box players. Basically in box you don't have space to just carry the ball all over the place and dodge. It's a very technical game where a team has to move the ball quick to get a shot. You also have to be a great shooter to score in box. 4x4 goals and the goalies have bulkier padding. It is a different game in those regards, but the US is about the same at both. Last cycle the US senior team got a silver in outdoor and a bronze in indoor. Lost to Canada and lost to Six Nations. Canada won both. For U-19s the current US field team is not at all likely to beat Canada, and the US indoor U-19 team was 4th at worlds. Lost to Canada and lost to Six Nations. Canada is on top now in both field and indoor for both senior and U-19 national teams. The US is about the same level below them in both and the US is give and take with Six Nations. Right now the reason why Canada seems a little better is the box skill set. All the speed is the ball being passed around and not the players running around.

I'll say this as a lacrosse parent; I feel like I got an extra XMas present this year going to watch my sons play box lacrosse. I find the box lacrosse game to be immensely more exciting to watch and the kids seem to enjoy it more too. The outdoor game is not nearly as exciting. With the long pauses for face offs and all the breaks for the substitutions on every time down the field the outdoor game is getting to be as boring as baseball.

I do not think Looney's or anyone connected to them are making excuses, it seems it is the Hawks parents/fans that keep bring this up because they beat Looney's by 2 goals in box, yet in the field game, where is really counts Looney's beat Hawks by large margins time and again. My feeling is let the kids play indoor, they are playing it for fun and as previously mentioned it is a good way to keep a stick in their hands during the off season.

You are correct, Hawks is always loosing to Looney's in field play, league and tournaments, so this is why they keep pounding Loony's now because of their little fun play time box win last Sunday. But during league/tournament games against Looney's not a peep out of Hawks because they always loose. Good grief, let it go and just let the kids have fun during the winter, stop acting like you just won the world series of lacrosse. When Looney's beat Hawks you never see or hear Looney's parents/fans posting crap like the Hawks are doing over this win.

I'm not connected with Looney's but I know the reason this is done and it is to give this player exposure that he wouldn't get playing youth lacrosse in Fl. He is considered one of the top 5 FOGO 8th graders in youth lacrosse, so to your statement that this is completely ridiculous, you have absolutely no idea what the poop you are talking about, plus it is really none of your business. So keep making butthead comments about something you know nothing about.

That's your opinion. No one really cares what you think and when you get down to it, you are not paying the money and it is really none of your concern. Did you ever stop to think some parents would rather have their son recognized as an outstanding player rather then the money, which seems to be your driving concern. And again, I have nothing to do with Looney's and obviously their FOGO is not my son, I just know about him and have seen him play a few times and he is superior at his position.

what does it matter weather he flew or not? what is the difference from him coming up from FL to kids from PA, DE, or VA going to a clinic in MD? there is no difference, if his parents can afford airfare they what do you care!

There are likely dozens of kids as talented or better at the FOGO over the kids who fly in and out of showcases. A finalist in the big face off contest last month was a kid from the Bronx who took up lacrosse 6 months ago. He's supposed to be one of the top guns in the class now, but nobody would know that if Harlem lacrosse didn't scholarship the kid or if one of the coaches didn't drive him to the FOGO event. Calm down a little. They're 8th graders.

Really hope the kid does well. But come on, Top 5 ??? Who does ranking??? He may be a great player..but 8th to 12th is a long time. And the best FOGO's usually arent the most skilled position at older ages, just quick with hands and strong as heck ... Now if his parents see potential and have the time and cash...Go for it..It is their business and time. But to most people that hear about a 8th grader flying up to Maryland to play lax..It is a WOW! He does? to most of them.

Did you forget Howard High won the state championship? If Bitmore can keep those kids from commuting 30 to 60 minutes to their current club's practices, they will be good.

Bitmore has little competition in western Baltimore county and eastern Howard county. No reason they shouldn't be great.

Just saying - the kids are there. Bitmore just needs to have the coaching, organization, and leadership to keep them at home.

If that club is comprised primarily of Howard County public school kids, they are going to get pounded. The MD private school kids who play lacrosse have much better players than those playing in MD public schools.

Even the top Virginia public school teams would have destroyed Howard High School last year.

There is D1 talent at Howard, Mt. St Joe's, and other schools in this area. There are also lots of kids in that area that go to Loyola, Boys Latin, St. Pauls, Mcdonogh, etc. The talent is there - just no stable clubs.

Did you not read the post the dad wrote when he said, "Did you forget Howard High won the state championship? If Bitmore can keep those kids from commuting 30 to 60 minutes to their current club's practices, they will be good."

That Howard HS team would get destroyed by a lot of public and private schools in this area. Getting the public school MD kids into a club is not a recipe for a great club.

The private schools definitely have a higher concentration of better players but public schools have plenty of individual D1 talent . Not all of the most talented players families believe private school is the best option for their kids when considering more than sports. High ranking academic publics often have more to offer than many of the privates and some families make a conscious decision to keep their kids public. If they want their player to get noticed, they trust that their club program will help make that happen. Maryland is one of few regions that base so much emphasis on private schools.

2022 absolutely has holdbacks. So does 2021. Unless you aren't considering pre-first a holdback. They certainly have kids older than what is typical for their grade because of attending pre-first at a private school. All teams have holdbacks because of this for the most part.

They did not leave kids, the kids left the team. Now the reason they left does not reflect well on the club, but nonetheless, the club did not abandon the kids.

Same thing happened with the Crab hardshells at the older ages and probably will happen to FCA older teams. When kids realize they aren't going to get recruited or play on a competitive squad they will walk away. It is the kid's choice (and parents, why pay so much $ if it does't get results)...that isn't a Looney's problem...happens at just about every club, especially those with 2 teams per age group. Looney's was strong at 16s and will be strong 2020 and below.

LOL. You can see who has the young kids. All you posters who have not gone through the recruiting process are very much in the dark. If you have a middle school kid, talk to a HS parent who has already done it. Your eyes will be opened. Not all kids will be D1. If you kid goes D1 the scholarships are split up as every team only gets 12.5. Most kids will play D11 and D111 and the grades will get them more money than sports. Once they get to college they may not play as coaches change once you are there. Better to make sure you kid is having fun and getting good grades than be that crazy parent on the side line. (you know who you are)

I understand this forum is based on crazy people attacking different clubs, Club directors, Tournaments, HS's and parents. Just want to enter some truth into the argument.

I feel you sir. I am going through this youth sport thing with my second child now. And I find myself way more calm and collected with all these topics on this site. Once you do it once you realize its not life or death if your son can shoot 90 miles a hour with his left hand at 12. But with the first I tracked everyone of his skills and what level they where at. When it comes to D1 sports and I mean all D1 sports you are born with what it takes or you are not. And the coaches will find you if you are built for D1 relax and it will come if your son has what it takes. Just let them play and teach them to work hard and play hard and us parents should just sit back and relax and let it happen.

Sometimes a club loses a lot of kids on a particular team. But I've never heard of a club disbanding two teams because of lack of players.

Please don't bring up FCA. The Looneys 2017 team did not lose any kids to that program. Those kiss were not r3cruit3d away by FCA. OT is just that both teams had bad talent and the club gave up on them.

with so many clubs now this will happen more and more. There's bound to be an attrition with the number of kids playing high school club. All these middle club players are not making their HS teams - especially at the MIAA schools. And even those that do but aren't likely to get recruited for college - why pay all that money for recruiting tournaments? So the ones that are left will end up going to a stronger team and you'll see clubs have trouble filling HS rosters. SOunds like this is what happened to the looneys 17/18 teams. Apparently they didn't have enough kids to make a full team register for tryouts. So they pulled the plug early so they ones who wanted to play could find a team. I think some ended up at the green trurtle

I know this is opposite of most of you guys thoughts. But I think the Looneys club should be applauded for canceling a team that was not going to be worth the time and effort. Most clubs would push forward with a team as long as they had 18 body's willing to pay. This tells me someone over there cares about kids not just a pay check.

I think the club and parents are at fault. It is OK to have a kid that will never play MIAA A play club. It is also OK to have an A, A- or B club team with a bunch of kids and parents that love lacrosse and want to play more than just HS. The club can focus on lesser tournaments and still be competitive. I think the club looses the focus of expanding the sport and letting the kids have fun. Not every on is a D1 player. I know every kid on the Crabs, younger Looneys, FCA are all D1 players. Please do not exclude the kids that want to get better, have the drive but do not have the natural ability.

I agree with this 100% but no club will stat this as there goal they all want to say play for us and be D1. None of these clubs will tell the best player on the team to go play for the Crabs you are a D1 kid this team is for D3 or just for fun kids.

My best advise is to pick the closest one and see where your sons skill level fits in. After you decide that come back here and ask again to find the best club for his skill level.

U9 is very young. Stay with a club that is close to you to make sure he wants to stay with it. Some of the best kids at u9 do nothing at u15 or HS. Make sure he and you are having fun. All this other stuff is just Cr@p.

This is somewhat off topic but close to this topic. I think Lacrosse is a good sport for the undersized kid with heart. But I think us Lacrosse people forget that Lacrosse is still a contact sport and when it comes to D1 and even top D3 lacrosse its still all about body type and measurable s. If you and your wife are 5 foot and 5' 3" and you both run a 7 flat 40 have your son play lacrosse for fun and do not go down this Rabbit hole of travel lacrosse. No one pushes a kid for a football scholarship when they are 5 foot 100 pounds in 10th grade why do we think this kid could play D1 lacrosse.

D1 Maryland D poles avg height is 6'1" and 196 pounds. So if your son is not going to be this big or be strong/fast enough to deal with this size player stop the D1 dream. If he falls in this range or will fall in this range go for it.

Wrong. That was not the case with either Looney's 2017 or 2018. Both teams were terrible. Neither team lost kids or a coach because of a mass exodus or another club wooing them away.

Both teams were terrible since the outset and then the club pulled the plug and kicked those kids to the curb.

Way to support them, Looney's.

If they where as bad as you say they where then they where stealing from those players. The club should not put a team on the field if they are not good enough to play at the level required.

Not to disrupt such an informative back and forth on Looney's, but a serious question:

How prevalent is it for kids to start kindergarten as 6 year olds in Baltimore, Md-suburbs of DC, DC or NoVA? In other words, do boys with Summer and even Spring birthdays typically wait a year to start kindergarten in these areas?

I was talking with friends with kids in private school in a couple of larger Southern cities and was amazed when they said it would be (and has been for years) unusual for boy born in April to start kindergarten as a 5-year old in their cities? They said this was also somewhat true of the parents they knew with kids in public school.

I am guessing you are on the age based side of the new grad year based format in use now in the DMV. With the cost of daycare in the DMV you have to be someone with means to be able to decide to pay another full year of day care. So your summer birthday son can go into school at 6 years old. Yes it happens a lot and many lacrosse boys do 8th grade twice so they are 2 years older going into high school.

I'm not in DMV, but my kids go to a private school with 2-3 kids a year re-classing for b-ball or football, but not lax yet. All the kids I know who went to boarding school and play lax repeated 9th grade.

By no means are we pushing him to be the next great lax player, he loves to play, its not his only sport. We are just looking for a good team for him to develop and grow with good coaching. His team now, is a little too relaxed and they are not teaching him much. He learned his dodges and crease rolls slides and faceoffs from a player at Gonzaga that lives in our neighborhood

define many? You can't be 19 before your senior year in MIAA and play sports that year. That would constitute the mythical double hold-back -- ie being a summer birthday and waiting until kid is 6 start school and then repeating a grade later on. Is anyone aware of a lax player that skipped his senior year? I would imagine it's happened since they made a rule that against it. But it certainly not "many" at least in MIAA. Does DC/VA leagues not have an age limit? I have heard of some egregious examples of holbacks. Fall bdays where the kids is already older for his normal grade and then a holdback year. But the double holdback is a myth. And the number of single hold backs is exaggerated. Most middle school teams have 4-5 and most of them are summer birthdays. Some teams have more, others less.

Maybe. Or maybe he stops growing when he hits 5'10". You have no idea how tall he may eventually become.

The double holdback does seem to go against being able to play in MIAA in HS. But you are sadly mistaken on the amount of kids heldback. I know from actual knowledge,,,not hearsay that two different grades at one had close to 50% of boys held back in prefirst.
It was common knowledge that all MIAA schools had many kids that did prefirst. Add that up and clubs are full of heldback kids. And they are not all summer birthdays. Could care less why parents do it at school. It is their business why, But the take over of Lacrosse for these special kids goes completely against all youth sports morals

I posted this fact to help the parents set expectations for there child. We all know looking at the parents size and height is not 100% but it is by far the best way to project size of child when they get to 18 years old. Also this helps the parent of a small child who is kicking butt at U11 and even U13. But his projected size is going to be 5' 8" 120 his Sr year. So I say once again Lacrosse at the highest level is still a CONTACT sport. Stick skills can not handle 6'1" 225 pole no matter how good they are.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Maryland, D.C., Virginia Fall 2015 Summer 2016 Lacrosse - 01/08/16 12:58 PM
Disagree, Off ball movement and stick skills are the key. The 6'1' 225 pole is good but if he is chasing a little guy like Rob Pannell 5' 10', Joe Sanke 5'5", Jordan Wolf 5'9", Matt Kavanagh 5'8" he will get smoked. That is a fact Jack.

I would guess that all of these guys have very very very sick shuttle run and 40 times. And if some one has time please find the avg size of all the 70 D1 attackmen. I am guessing its not 5'9". So lets go back to the football example I can name you some great small players but 99 out of 100 people will tell you Football is a big strong mans game. Top 1% measurable s can overcome size and weight negatives in all sports but as a rule of thumb in all contact sports size and weight win. Also when I talk about stick skills I am talking about all the skills acquired from hours of practice on a wall or goal not what you are born with or acquire in a gym.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Maryland, D.C., Virginia Fall 2015 Summer 2016 Lacrosse - 01/08/16 02:06 PM
Stick skills are practice. Game IQ is to a great extent just repetition and good coaching. People make this sport sound like it is the SAT in cleats. I'd say the liability for kids is poor coaching, bad habits. Great coaching getting to great habits are just being confused with this lacrosse IQ drivel. Most elite lacrosse players aren't elite in other sports. They may be strong athletes but if they are not coached and don't get reps in say soccer, they will look like the crude low soccer IQ kids out there. There are plenty of posters here who think great football players can't be good lacrosse players and it confuses a point when they back that up pointing at football kids who pick up lacrosse late and would be great lacrosse players if focused on it. It's just practice.

It always pays to be a great athlete AND have physical stature. There are positional exceptions. An NFL receiver can be 5'9 weigh 80 pounds less than linebackers, and so can cornerbacks. But those players have to be fast as sin. Speed kills and size matters little at those positions. Except for these positions and kickers, football players at a high level need to have a oh shiva stature. In basketball and many other sports it is also needed. I think in lacrosse an attackman can be small but must be fast as sin. At all other positions I have no doubt that these kids have to be both skilled and have the physical stature. I doubt any early verbal at middie, defense or goalie at 5'7 and rail thin will ever play unless they fill out into the stature that strong players in college have. I think this is especially true at defense and goalie. In future years with the growth of the game I think a college defender or goalie under 6'0 and 190-200 will become as rare as a big time college or pro QB in football shorter than 6'0.

Lacrosse will reach a point soon where diminutive size means kids can't play D1 or pro just like other developed sports.

There isn't a doubt that if you take two lacrosse players where one is 5'8 and 170 pounds and one who is 6'2 and 200+ pounds were both are equally fast, agile and skilled the great advantage goes to the athlete with stature. You can't go to the gym and work on getting taller or longer. In lacrosse length to play bigger and cover more space or hold a stick away from defenders is an advantage. Being physically bigger and stronger than another smaller player is always an advantage assuming the bigger kid can run with the smaller player. That isn't even a debate. People who point at the past successes of undersized lacrosse players are focusing on attackmen and I maintain that is always possible for attackmen who are exceptionally fast. Beyond that, all there is to point at is lacrosse history to here is whitewashed by he fact that it has historically been a sanctuary for white, prep school, privileged and small kids who'd not succeed in other sports. Lacrosse is a comp to sports like squash and fencing in that regard.

Not true. Of the 28 players on the Capitals only 3 under 6'0". 1 at 5'10" 2 at 5'11". 7 6'3" or above.

Thanks prior poster. NHL has some diminutive sized players, but not many of them. I saw the Boston Bruins passing through an airport to their team bus a couple weeks ago. I'm 5'11 and felt like a twerp as they were walking by. Too exhausting to just respond to the toppers who won't give in. With alike speed, agility and skill, 6+ and 200+ has it all over 5'7 and 160-175 every time. One of the issues with early recruiting is the extrapolations of what a small 8th or 9th grader will be. In truth a lot of the reclassified kids are just plain undersized for their age and have used the repeat grade thing during the puberty years for a short window of advantage. Then that closes and it doesn't hold up.

The best part of this thread right now is this started from a statement about if you and your wife are small and slow its going to be pretty hard for your son to play D1. I do love how it has gotten to this point. But for anyone to say Size and strength or weight are not great advantages in any contact sport you are nuts. So when it comes to speed of a player at D1 can you guys name any slow running players in D1 and if so how many? And if you do find any slow players please tell me how tall and how much they weight?
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Maryland, D.C., Virginia Fall 2015 Summer 2016 Lacrosse - 01/08/16 07:00 PM
Speed will always be prioritized over size for a sport like lacrosse. Prototypical long pole playing in college will be 6'+, but if you ask them if they'd rather cover a slow 6'+ attackman or a shifty/fast 5'6 Sankey type ... you already know the answer.

There are no slow D1 lacrosse players. You'll never see the field.

Right now lacrosse is a sport where shorter players can play at the highest levels. There are plenty of 5'8"-5'11" attack and middies playing at the big D-1 schools. Who knows how things will change. I'm 6'4" and my son is already 6' at 13 so is isn't an issue for us. I think that there will always be a place for the smaller, shifty dodging offensive players provided they are fast/quick enough. It's one of the great things about the sport.

Don't forget. They don't just have to end up 6'1" and 190 lbs. They have get nearly that big by the Fall of 9th grade or Summer before 10th on the current recruiting calendar. Doesn't matter if dad is 6'3" and both parents played college sports if they aren't held back or an early maturer.

Lots of people would exercise a choice and you could draw some people from all those areas and incubate a good club. Setting up shop in Leesburg Virginia was stupid for 3d and alienated the families of the better players they were able to attract. Setting up a me-too version of Madlax or VLC in Fairfax County is equally stupid, and setting up a me-too version of Crabs or FCA in Baltimore is likely the most stupid thing which is what Team 91 is about to do. I see more of the same reading that they are doing tryouts in early August in Baltimore burbs.

It's a loser strategy right out of the box. 3d just blew it. Nobody wants to drive to Leesburg to play with the Battlelax and PVI leftovers. That's a shame considering they have a platform to be a success but just a terrible execution strategy. Ditto with Team 91 Maryland...that will be exciting for about 3 months.


No a shot I'm trekking over to southern maryland from fairfax county. I'd rather drive out to leesburg.


It all depends on club coaching, consistency, and dedication.

Some of the best to ever play the game and below 6'.

You tried to use guys 1 or 2 inches below 6 foot to prove point. That is funny. That's like telling all the 5'5" basketball players in high school to go out and spend big money trying to play D1 basketball. Well Spud Webb did it so you should waste your time and get your hopes up

I compiled the average height and weight for the LSM / D players at seven D1 programs and it was just a tad over 6'0" and about 190 lbs. Speed still trumps size, but big and fast is better than small and fast!

Terrible analogy there Lurch! Spud Webb was never considered "one of the best"! Also, most of the players listed there are more than 1 to 2 inches charter than 6'. Put down the mad dog 2020 and put together a better argument.

How many total D1 players would be taken in to the equation for your example chosen (6 attackmen). I think your being very selective to prove a false statement. Not attacking anyone, I just really disagree. I have stood on the sidelines at Bayhawk games and those fellas are VERY big.

As a side not at fall ball this year Crabs 2021 walked by me onto the field at a tourney...... I am 6'1" and almost half were taller than me!!! Size is increasingly a factor at all levels.

What you need to understand about Crabs is a lot of their 2021 players are holdbacks and should be playing 2020 or maybe 2019 but not sure about 2019 but for sure 2020. Crabs is well known for the king of holdbacks and their 2021 and 2020 teams lead the way.

No one is saying its a 100% fact who have to be tall strong and fast to play D1 lacrosse but most are. Do if your son is not going to be all three or at least 2 of the 3 save your money. And for him to only be 2 of the 3 he has to be very strong or very fast to out weigh not being all 3. As a coach I love molding kids into better players. But a hard fact is coaches do not make D1 players genetics and some hard work do. The coaching and practice makes them great when they start playing D1 but 9 out of 10 times genetics and a weight room get them onto the team. Sorry I know it hurts

FUN game to watch. Looney's came out a little flat, 91 shot well and had a BIG guy in the cage..Looney's hit him all night.
Looney's was down four..tied it with 30 sec. to play, scored with 3 sec. to end.
Well done both sides.

He will easily be taller than that. He is 4'8" now and 8

Ok we all get the study to go to a great school thing. But for the kid who was 4'8" and now 5'4" how tall was his parents. Its all genetics the parents and grand parents tell the story 95% of the time. And we are just talking about increasing your odds we are all aware nothing is 100% and luck in also part of everything.

And age restrictions by grade to prevent the kids a full year or two older from distorting true grade based teams? Sounds like there are enough teams that they can say "goodbye" to teams that do not comply. They are a County government sponsored league- should not be about the money or politics but about the kids and what is right. Wonder if their employees who are intertwined with the lacrosse world will step back and see what is in the best interest of the broader group and not just their own or a friend's kids. Plenty of time before the season starts to get it right.

Well if each team only has 1 to 4 kids who are to old it should not be that hard for them move kids up to the next year above them. And they would have to grandfather in the 2020 kids who are to old because they would have nowhere to play. And to be honest with you the 2020 kids will be recruited this summer anyway so they should really only make the rule for 7th grade and below. You can not have kids in 8th grade with nowhere to play.

That would be their parents and their coaches' fault and the legitimate kids should not have to deal with that. The kid who is not eligible knows he is not age eligible and has been okay beating up on younger kids. Now the rules to prevent the nonsense can go in and we are supposed to grandfather kids who manipulated the system? 8th grade is old enough for consequences of bad sportsmanship. Find a league without rules similar to what they now have to do for tournaments - you took a chance when you cheated now face up to it.

Simple fix - grade based with age restrictions. No logical reason not to do this. Would not have thought it necessary when grade based was introduced but nobody would have guessed how many lack integrity. Any other sport you would have to still play with your age despite your grade.

No college coach cares about that (men or women, lacrosse or any sport). They just want the best recruits per grade. They couldn't care less what the age is.

The only ones who are crying about it are dads whose sons aren't good enough to make it.

leave the poor guy alone, he was a terrible athlete and couldn't make the rec co-ed dodge ball team (he thought the girls threw to hard). he sets his son up with a false sense of athletic ability, when in reality he is playing against kids 2 years younger. The guy is living life vicariously through his son...he is a sad person who needs help!

Nobody complains about this, it is accepted in high school. Kids playing up isn't the issue, older kids playing down is! Any parent who played sports competitively will tell you the same. Your statement just proves the only thing you were good at in middle and high school was pocketball and sega.

I agree. That was my point. My son plays for crabs but is on age. They are a good team. They are well coached. He loves his teammates. Is he a cheater?

I'm still waiting for someone to tell me ONE CLUB he could play for that doesn't have any holdbacks.

If that question can't be answered, then everyone here needs to STFU and this conversation should be over.

Here is the problem crab daddy - NO OTHER program games the system like the Crabs. It is part of his strategy to gain an advantage. Without holdbacks his teams are no better than any other of the competitive clubs in the DMV. If you want your kid to be associated with kind of program that is your prerogative. How about posting the birth dates of your 2020 roster. Of course you won't - because you know it's shameful.

I cant wait to see all these kids who are freshmen in high school playing JV and all these parents bitching because an 18yr old senior beat out their kid for Varisty.

Please enlighten me then. HOw is it that Crabs "games the system" any different than FCA, Hawks, 91 MD, Madlax, Looneys, etc. When I am at Crabs tryouts and talk to the parents, they are there because the kids all want to play for Crabs. If gaming the system means that their success has led them to be the club kids want to play for then I guess they are guilty.

Do you really think that the birthdates for Crabs 2020 roster is really all that much different than Looneys or 91 or Madlax or FCA?

I'm going to ask again:

TELL ME ONE TEAM I COULD TAKE MY SON TO THAT DOESN'T HAVE HOLDBACKS.

It's been a day and still no answer. Because there is no club in MD where that is the case. So why is Crabs singled out?

Who cares? Too much whining about holdbacks. It is what it is. Complaining on forums will not change things. My son is age appropriate. He is not a big kid, but he is very good, even playing against holdbacks. If your son puts in the work and is a good player, he'll have no problems playing against teams with holdbacks. Otherwise, he should be playing on a B team.

I'm sorry. Are you under the impression that those birthdates are just sitting on the website for anyone to grab?

What is your obsession with Crabs 2020? Do you feel like they have an unusual number of holdbacks as compared to other teams? I assume you have a 2020 son that gets beat by them which then leads me to assume you are a Looney's parent. You know damn well your own club has it's fair share of older kids as well, not to mention your Florida based FOGO.

If your son plays for the Crabs ask RM for the roster/birthdates. Seems easy enough to me. You won't because you know the truth. Complete farce.

I actually work in the kitchen at Looney's - everytime Crabs 2020 comes in RM tries to have them order off the kids menu. Obviously - we don't let them.

the holdback issue needs to be resolved. My son, who is also not a big kid and age appropriate competes on a very good team and does extremely well. The holdbacks don't bother him as much, but that is because he is accustomed to it, however that doesn't make it right! holdbacks and pre-first ruin the integrity of the sport, it needs to end.

The difference between Crabs and all the other clubs (FCA, Looney's, 91) is they have a few older kids, not an entire starting line-up like Crabs! Crabs takes advantage of the situation, abuses it, and makes pigs out of themselves. The other three are guilty as well, but Crabs will eventually have an entire team of older kids, and you will be looking at the other tree as an option or Hawks since you don't like being labeled a cheater.

Does Crabs control what kids come to their tryouts? The truth is, for the most part, every other team takes leftovers that don't make Crabs.

Do you honestly believe that any club says, "We'd love to take this kid, but we already have 5 older kids on the roster"? Of course not. So it all just comes off as jealousy.

keep trying to convince yourself that it is ok to cheat, one day you might actually convince yourself it is true! Yes! there are clubs that keep their core group of kids together, regardless if they were the best at tryouts or not.

yes! Crabs do control what kids come out for tryouts! they are invite only...correct?

The Crabs roster is certainly much different. The other clubs you mention may have one holdback for whatever reason but the Crabs have made it the norm to have a team full of holdbacks and openly recruit and encourage players to hold back. Those same coaches that you say are so great would not have results much different than the other teams if there were not so many older kids being coached. Any holdback should be playing with their age group and not their class but the Crabs only win because they have loaded their team purposely with holdbacks.

Why should the kid play on a B team just because holdbacks decided to game the system and take up the A and double A slots just because they are currently bigger, faster, stronger and OLDER. They are not more talented or skilled - they are just bigger and faster and stronger because of their age.

But they do have older kids that would not qualify if a 9/1/2001 date was re-established. Would miss a few if a 5/1 date was used.

No. Not correct. Anyone can come to Crabs tryouts. That's why there are so many people there.

And you are kidding yourself if you don't think other clubs aren't willing to bring new kids in if they are better. I don't have to convince myself of anything. my kid is on age. and the kids that are older aren't breaking any rules. Not to mention every other club is doing the same thing.

Don't worry, maybe your son will make crabs next year. Especially now that you know that anyone is welcome to tryout.

That would be a little tough since my son isn't a 2020. I know that other Hawks teams have older kids. You expect me to believe that the 2020 team is the only team around that takes the moral high ground and has no kids born before 9/1/2001? I don't believe that since the other Hawks teams don't seem to mind and Matt Hogan has never been known for his ethics when it comes to lacrosse

Crabs takes the best 22 kids in that grade regardless of age. Guess what?? So does every other club. Do you honestly believe that any club says, "We'd love to take this kid, but we already have 5 older kids on the roster"? Of course not. So it all just comes off as jealousy.


keep trying to convince yourself that it is ok to cheat, one day you might actually convince yourself it is true! Yes! there are clubs that keep their core group of kids together, regardless if they were the best at tryouts or not.

yes! Crabs do control what kids come out for tryouts! they are invite only...correct?


No. Not correct. Anyone can come to Crabs tryouts. That's why there are so many people there.

And you are kidding yourself if you don't think other clubs aren't willing to bring new kids in if they are better. I don't have to convince myself of anything. my kid is on age. and the kids that are older aren't breaking any rules. Not to mention every other club is doing the same thing.

Don't worry, maybe your son will make crabs next year. Especially now that you know that anyone is welcome to tryout.


my kid will never move to Crabs, he was given the option a few years ago but chase to stay with school friends. his team is very competitive and plays well against everybody!

It's a shame people like you pick up for the cheaters, you help them to cheat and give them money to put towards cheating, so YES, I would say you and your kid are cheaters!

How about posting the birth dates of your 2020 roster. Of course you won't - because you know it's shameful.


Please enlighten me then. HOw is it that Crabs "games the system" any different than FCA, Hawks, 91 MD, Madlax, Looneys, etc. When I am at Crabs tryouts and talk to the parents, they are there because the kids all want to play for Crabs. If gaming the system means that their success has led them to be the club kids want to play for then I guess they are guilty.

Do you really think that the birthdates for Crabs 2020 roster is really all that much different than Looneys or 91 or Madlax or FCA?

I'm going to ask again:

TELL ME ONE TEAM I COULD TAKE MY SON TO THAT DOESN'T HAVE HOLDBACKS.

It's been a day and still no answer. Because there is no club in MD where that is the case. So why is Crabs singled out?


Hawks 2020, have your son tryout there, you and him won't be labeled a cheater any longer!


Do you really believe that there is not a single kid with a birthday prior to 9/1/2001 on Hawks 2020? Of course there is


Yes, you got your answer! Now, do the right thing and tryout there next year! Stop enabling and supporting the cheating!


That would be a little tough since my son isn't a 2020. I know that other Hawks teams have older kids. You expect me to believe that the 2020 team is the only team around that takes the moral high ground and has no kids born before 9/1/2001? I don't believe that since the other Hawks teams don't seem to mind and Matt Hogan has never been known for his ethics when it comes to lacrosse


Not everybody cheat like your club! I know integrity is something you know nothing about.

Well - if your kid is not a 2020 then I sure as heck hope he is incredibly talented. Once RM starts holding back to 20xx players a year ahead of him - be prepared to either ride the bench or be cut to make room for older kids. That's how he rolls. Starting 2020 goalie and FOGO both cut to make room for 19 holdbacks.

most of the 2020 Crabs parents aren't intelligent enough to see this coming! By them condoning this they are giving his permission to do it to their own kids.

I'm sorry. Are you under the impression that those birthdates are just sitting on the website for anyone to grab?

What is your obsession with Crabs 2020? Do you feel like they have an unusual number of holdbacks as compared to other teams? I assume you have a 2020 son that gets beat by them which then leads me to assume you are a Looney's parent. You know damn well your own club has it's fair share of older kids as well, not to mention your Florida based FOGO. [/quote]

FOGO is on age, and it is no different than a kid from PA or VA coming to the Baltimore area for a team. If he and his parents want to compete up here then what do you care? They have the means to do so, so drop it. You issue with the FOGO leads me to believe that you son is a FOGO and can't beat the Florida kid.

The difference between Crabs and all the other clubs (FCA, Looney's, 91) is they have a few older kids, not an entire starting line-up like Crabs! Crabs takes advantage of the situation, abuses it, and makes pigs out of themselves. The other three are guilty as well, but Crabs will eventually have an entire team of older kids, and you will be looking at the other tree as an option or Hawks since you don't like being labeled a cheater.

A lot of the teams do not have reclassified kids. Reclassified means that you repeated a grade, likely 8th, for the sole purpose of gaining an advantage in athletics. I get where that rubs people the wrong way. What I don't understand is the issue with pre-first kids. A ton of my son's friends did pre-first so they would not be young for their grade. I have never understood the issue there.

In youth sports, kids should play with their age. If they went to pre-first, they would need to play with kids their own age not necessarily their grade- pre first and hold backs have the same result that the kids are a year older-it does not matter when or why they do it but they are physically more advanced and at the youth level, it makes a huge difference. There is one cut off date that everyone should be held to. Unfortunately lacrosse used to have this and left the model at the wish of a select few. Every other sport has an age requirement and sometimes it means you do not play with kids in your grade.

The great thing about holdbacks is when the very good 7th grade kid realizes he won't play his 8th grade year (see Crabs) because of the frosh. who repeat in front of him they find new teams. I see it happen every year.

Note. Not as many MD Lax parents allow their child to holdback as many claim (see L.I. Parents). Lose with dignity.

if you are born in the summer and you do pre-first that isn't issue since it was done academic reasons. however, you should still compete against the kids your age, not your grade.

That's so stupid on so many levels. So you are saying that a pre-first kid with a spring birthday shouldn't be allowed to play youth lacrosse with his friends that he goes to school with??? Seriously that is your stance? When did this sport get to be so jaded? You'd rather them have to play with kids they don't know? That would be fun for them.

I get the issue with kids repeating 8th grade. I do. But bitching and whining about pre-firsts is taking it to a whole new level. Is it really too much to ask a 6th grader or 7th grader to play against someone 4-8 months older? How did these kids ever play rec in U-11 or U-13?

Lacrosse never had a single year cut-off. In fact, I would argue the every other year cutoff (U13,U11,U9) is much more screwed up than the graduation year cut off. Now if lacrosse ever had a single year cutoff (U13, U12, U11,U10,U9), I would fully support it - but until then, graduation years work better.

It is the way it works with every other sport and yes, it does mean that kids do not always play with their buddies but kids need to play with their age. The cut off has to be somewhere.

Exactly - the reason for why they are older does not matter. The fact that they are older is what matters and should be with kids their own age.

My son was born in Oct of 2000. The oldest boy on his team did a pre-first year and was born in June of 2000. He also has teammates that were born in the spring and summer of 2001. That seems pretty balanced. If not, what is the appropriate cut off date?

I believe most people say a kid is reclassed if they are not in the age-appropriate grade: so depending on the state you live in if you started school at 5 years old you are "on-age" if you started at 6 you are reclassed. And then some people also repeat a grade to gain an advantage, these are also reclassed. I live in PA, so anyone born before 9/1 is considered reclassed. I will say, from my experience, most top clubs have about 50% of their players that are reclassed.

IMHO - I don't have a problem with pre-first kids. I do have a problem with the kids that repeat 8th grade to gain a physical advantage. When you include the kids that do both - it's really unfair and unsafe. Just go back to age based teams up to 8th grade and the problem is solved. At the very least - grade based - with an age cutoff.

Again, all things equal height/weight/athletic ability, what is the difference between a current 8th grader born June!2001 who attended pre-first an a current 8th grader born June/2001 who was held back? There is no difference! Both kids should be playing with a 2019 team.

My son has a December 2001 birthday, on age for lax 2020. The birthday sucks for his other sports that go by calendar year, but he is age appropriate for the others since those sports gave a backbone and enforce age groups.

I agree so lets do the math on how much older a kid is who did pre first or was a reclass. That is what I want to see written out for everyone to see.

Simply put: a unfair advantage for one kid is a unfair disadvantage for another kid! How do the proper on age kids feel that are good enough to make the Crabs, but are relegated to being a role player instead of a starter due to the more advanced holdbacks which probably comprise 50% of the roster? I am sure those kids and parents are biting their tongues about the inequity of it.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Maryland, D.C., Virginia Fall 2015 Summer 2016 Lacrosse - 01/19/16 02:40 PM
I go back and forth about this. I feel false confidence is what causes kids to quit. The reality is, our kids will have to beat out a hold-back or pre- first or reclass kid when they get to high school. So why not start dealing with it in 5th to 8th grade.

My son was born in Oct of 2000. The oldest boy on his team did a pre-first year and was born in June of 2000. He also has teammates that were born in the spring and summer of 2001. That seems pretty balanced. If not, what is the appropriate cut off date?

My son April 2001 and plays on a 2019 team. Please tell me how he is not getting screwed. Or at least last year please tell me how he was not getting the high hard one?


I agree so lets do the math on how much older a kid is who did pre first or was a reclass. That is what I want to see written out for everyone to see.


The vast majority of the pre firsts have summer birthdays so they would be not quite a year older than your son. There may be a couple of reclassed kids that are more than a year older than your son but they would be pretty rare. It would be extremely unlikely they would be more than 19 months older than your son as they would run into eligibility issues their senior year of high school.

Basically your son isn't getting disadvantaged any more than a July or August birthday kid would be disadvantaged if 9/1 was an enforced cut off.

A lot of the teams do not have reclassified kids. Reclassified means that you repeated a grade, likely 8th, for the sole purpose of gaining an advantage in athletics.

There are several players on my son's team your son's age and younger. Yes there are older players too. Again, what is the appropriate cutoff?

Because 5th - 8th they are still learning the game and figuring out things about themselves. Let it wait till high school, what is the hurry? Let kids play on age with their piers, not kids a year older or more.

The kids will have plenty of time in high school, college, and life thereafter to compete with older and younger people. For now, let them be kids and compete against piers of their own age.

Does your son play 2020 or 2019? If he's 2019 I don't have a huge problem with the June 2000 but some do. I personally think that they should have a June 1 or July 1 cutoff.

I think the best compromise is to have a 12 month window for the teams 7th grade and below. And then when you hit the 8th grade and above range it should be by what grade you are in no matter how old you are. The point being these grades are the recruitment ages like it or not. But we all can agree that 7th grade and below are not being recruited hard. And if you have a 7th grade stud on age play him up with the 8th graders to be looked at.

OMG ... 7th grade stud? Move him up so he can be looked at? ... Yeah ... this early recruiting mess will change itself soon... The professional desires of a college coach and the adolescent desires if a 14 year old kid are not on parallel tracks ... I have hope that this will become clear to everyone in the next few years when these verbal "commitments" start falling apart.

IMO - A boy should be playing for his friends and the ladies until 11th grade ... not college coaches. What a mess.

Moving the date back to the Sophomore year will let the colleges get ahead early and get the best players locked up to a school. But the big rule has to be no one can talk to anyone until this Soph. date. So this will force the parents and kids into making the high school team and showing well before you even start to think about College. I think this is the best idea to keep both sides happy.

I talked to a D1 assistant coach when this came out and he said he hopes that this goes through and is upheld. They hate recruiting kids this young because it is such a crap shoot. They do it because everyone else is doing it.

If they stick to no one talking to anyone before this date it can work. But no contact on any kind causes a extreme rush to find a school. It happens in football a lot because they wait to sign and find guys a lot later. So the kids do not have to time to really see who is signing where. If you do Soph. year it gives the 8 to 12 kid per class to really look over the kids in each teams class so they pick the correct school for them. The rules do not work in the kids favor when it comes to changing their mind. I think 99% would agree that 9th and 8th graders are to young. But the top 20% of Soph. are what they are and should be good players if they are great as a Soph.

The indoor season is nearly over. Just a couple more weeks.

The cream of the Goals Box league is shaping up like:
2020 - Hawks with Looneys close behind and Team 91 & FCA in every game.
2022 - Cannons and Rough Riders exchanging wins with the Goals House team (a few Hawks and Bitmore kids) contending.

The MMILL (Soccer Stop - Outdoor played indoor with no faceoffs) league is shaping up like:
U15 - Cannons and Swarm at the top
U13 - Hawks 2022 at the top with Bethesda 2021, Rough Riders 2021, Hawks Black 2021, Cannons close behind.
U11 - Bethesda Sidewinders, and South River tied at the top.

Great indoor action.

Well, let me tell you Dr Watson. A few weeks ago someone was mentioning how well Hawks was doing in indoor league. Nothing wrong with that, the same as nothing wrong with me mentioning that it is most likely a Hawks parent/fan bringing this up. But people like you have to get sideways when their team is mentioned, yet not in a bad way, but they still get sideways, just like you did with your sarcastic post.
No, I'm not laughing at you, I'm shaking my head figuring what a jerk you must be for being so sensitive and ready to have a hissy fit. Grow up.

A bitchfest, really. You know damn well that Crabs 2020 and 2021, more than half of their players are holdbacks and 2020 has a few double holdbacks. But keep telling yourself that it is ok to teach you son to cheat to get ahead. And no, my son was never cut from Crabs, he would never want to be associated with that corrupt organization. He has much more integrity than you or your son. Trust me, one of these days Ryan M's organization will come crashing down around his ears and he will be lost without "playing" the system. He knows no other way to win but to game the system.

Hawks has had a great indoor season but let's not carried away. It is indoor and good fun for the boys but most teams do not take it seriously-it is a way to keep a stick in their hand during the winter. Once again the parents putting more on it then it is. Hawks to their credit have played with almost full rosters-maybe due to their relative closeness to Goals or maybe they don't have as many training opportunities as some of the other teams off season. Some of the teams playing are combo A/AA teams, some have had 7-9 players at games, some games have been holiday weekends when families are away for Christmas or MLK day. Hawks have done well and should be proud but it really is just indoor and their putting these messages out is a bit transparent.

For 2020, Hawks sure does look good. FCA has been struggling - they do not look like their normal team, 91 is not playing as a team and has one kid who rarely passes to open team mates, runs it down and loses the ball more than scoring, Looneys Green is listed as top 3 but only because their line up has been A teams. Looneys Orange looks strong and their games with 91 and Hawks could have gone either way. RoughRiders is also struggling after losing players to other teams.

3 went to Looneys Orange and one went to Looneys green. They also lost another possibly to FCA but not sure about that one. Looneys Orange will be fine once they get on the field with full team and 91 is talented if they can control the showboating, share the ball and play with discipline.

Last year there wasn't a 2020 AA because only a few teams would declare as such. If it's only 4 or 5 teams in AA, they may blend in the AA with A again. Lots of lopsided games. It would be better if all of the traditionally AA teams played in AA. There should be a AA division of at 8-10 teams. There would be some teams that aren't going to vie for a title, but there would be plenty of competitive games. If RR goes in as AA and it's them and the 3-4 top AA teams, no fair and no fun for RR. But if several others at the same level go in as AA than those teams would have a couple matches with the top teams and the rest against similar opponents. There's a trickle down effect if everyone tries to enter in the division that they can win rather than where they can be competitive. There would be mid-level A teams that go into B. It's better to go 2-4 against top competition than 6-0 against lesser.

They don't pay for travel but certainly don't make much money. Probably average $1000-$1500 game if they are game day actives. They all have other jobs, either inside lax or professional. Looks like it would be fun for a few years. Wish it was around in the 90s. Not sure I understand the hate on MLL.

Above poster is an idiot (too many on this site). MLL provides some level of entertainment for the fans of the game and an opportunity for the most talented college players to extend their careers. Yes, the pay isn't huge, but most play for the love of it. The original writer of the post prob makes $50k per year and his son has gotten passed over in the recruiting process. Why so bitter?

More like a realist. Actually played D1 in the late 80's early 90's. Not bitter, just entertained by the parents going nuts over recruiting, middle school studs who have not hit puberty, and rich white people. BTW passed 50k about 20 years ago. Enjoy.

Agree, Looneys Orange will be back to their full strength in spring, RR may consider moving down, 91 played undisciplined full field in the fall with defenders and goalies trying to play offense and team not trying to find their open man. Looneys Green will play A. Should be a great spring with everyone in the same league.

Those U19 kids are the top 1% of the top 1% of players. There is no club breeding or making them into that spot. They would be on this U19 team no matter where they played.

Although not club related, I did hear some people griping about the coaches picking kids that were going to their schools and not necessarily the best kids. You can't make everyone happy.

Quite a few top colleges have quality club lax teams, nothing wrong with playing club. My oldest son played club hockey in college, and the benefits were better than playing D2 or D3 hockey.

Many times you can go to a better academic University cheaper and play on great club teams vs. paying a ton for a D3 school whose academics are not at the same level.

No indoor team is the same kids every week. This is the off season sorry but it is. Box is great but you will never have 100% of the kids show up every week.

All who play for FCA are on the team. Some games, you have all defenders and a goalie playing in the field. other games you have a better mix of players

thought the league was 2020, aren't they all amateur at that age? If Crabs were in it a few of them will have working papers and registered for selective service, but most other kids are 14 year olds.

Green has no business being there with their cakewalk schedule. Not mention that Orange never even had to play FCA and got a bye. Ah - the benefits of having your organization run the league.

I predict Looney's FOGO flies up for these games because these games don't matter (says Loonies parent when they lose).

thankyou 91 parent, please teach your son how to lose graciously, hopefully he isn't full of excuses like you.

91 MD lost 4 times, failed to beat the big boys. Take it and stop complaining 91 MD. Sounds familiar to when you were breakers. Changing jerseys doesn't always change results

91 MD did not even play Looneys Green so why would they care? RR just beat Green Sunday night as did other teams. Problem is with the schedule and how it was made. Problem always results w Cship when you mix A and AA in the same bracket and all teams do not play one another. You sound like the same crabs parent who has no idea what they are talking about. It is indoor, the kids had fun get over your pettiness.

And you are late for work again, need to get at these chores or you may loose your job. Plus, remember Looney's is spelled this way, not Loonies. Also, Green Turtle and Koopers are also owned by bars. seems like you are not very knowledgeable about youth lacrosse.

I never heard that. Since you seem to know so much why don't you tell everyone what they did to be kicked out of NPYLL. You say cheating, so exactly what did they do. Bet you can't answer that, because for one you don't even know if it is true and you have no idea what you are talking about. On the internet anyone can say anything, to the point of making up things but yet they can't back up their statements. And, fly in players, now you are saying there is more than one, you just keep getting in over your head deeper and deeper.

Please name your club of choice so we can hurt your feelings with all the cheating or dumb things your club has done.

What are you talking about? Did not see 91 say a word here and have never witnessed sportsmanship issues plaguing some other teams. They had incredibly close games against the top teams during indoor and we did not hear their team complain or mumble. You may not like them, but they are not bad sports. You really do sound like the same crab parent attacking them and you used the same line about jerseys in the fall. You did not even participate in indoor.

Sure. I can tell you exactly what they did because we were in the NPYLL at the time. They started with a great 2015 team that we battled over the years and they got kicked out of the NPYLL for playing games with their roster. Sometimes they had kids from either their AA or A teams playing for their other team, a direct violation of NPYLL rules. That's why they got kicked out and that's why they had to crawl over to the HoCo league.

Sorry to burst your bubble. Guess you have just a youth player and have no perspective/idea what you're talking about. They played people who weren't on the roster, got caught, and were kicked out. That's why I wasn't shocked that the club has been disintegrating and folding teams.

Looney's lineup will be stacked on Sunday. There is no way they won't cheat if they are able to get away with it. Its in their nature - they can't help it.

Oh I disagree with this statement. The Team 91 MD 2020 team is one of the most disrespectful unsportsmanlike teams out there. It was fun watching them get put in their place in indoor.

What you are describing is something that Crabs and FCA does all the time in tournaments. They enter a 2020 team in a tournament and bring their 2019 team. I have seen this first hand on a few occasions. I believe the NPYLL bylaws stated cannot play for two different teams but it has been a long time since I have seen the bylaws. This could have been a misunderstanding of the bylaws, who knows, but there is always Ryan M from Crabs, who plays any system he can to his advantage, well beyond the limit.

There is no need for them to stack their lineup as you describe. They have a strong lineup of players and are a strong and respected 2020 team. You are sounding like a Crabs parent/fan, take every opportunity to jump on another team, helps keep the conversation away from Crabs and their leader Ryan M.

I have nothing to do with the Crabs nor does my post. My kid has graduated but we were there in the early NPYLL days. What you are describing (2019 Crabs kids reclassifying and now becoming 2020s) is a different issue. Feel free to go to town about it on a different thread.

If made a ridiculous comment that it was just a rumor and I had no idea what I was talking about. If you ask anyone who had a kid back in the NPYLL back when the Looney's were in it, they'll tell you the exact same story.

The NPYLL bylaws stated exactly what the rules were and the Looney's violated them. They eventually were banned from the playoffs and kicked out of the league.

You can shut up now.

And you don't have a kid playing club lacrosse anymore but you're lurking on this site so you can bash Looney's? Do you suck at golf? Ever try tennis? There's bird watching, books, bridge club....

I am going to stop talking about this now, but not because of your rude statement to shut up. It shows how much you don't know about Crabs, it is not the reclassifying of 2019/2020, I was talking about their cheating in tournaments, which is not the same as what you are talking about. I feel sorry for you, your kid is now out of youth lacrosse, why do feel compelled to go online and trash a club, on something that may have happened 5 or 6 years ago. You need something else to do with your time. But, if I want to continue to discuss Crabs I will do so here and not on another thread as you seem to be suggesting. See, I didn't shut up.

Sorry your sons AA team got beat consistently by Looney's A players, it must have sucked thinking you were going to beat their depleted AA team only to find out their A players were still better than your AA players.

Get a life, move on, be a better father to your son, and accept that you paid top dollar for your sons club team to tell you they were AA but to find out that they were probably only a B team.

What a loser!

You really are an idiot. Did you even read the post? Looney's had AA guys filling in for A guys on their A team at times. That's why they were kicked out.

Why not ask some of the Looney's leadership what happened? They will confirm it, but will be embarrassed.

Not that father, not even a Looney's parent. Just tired of hearing imbeciles like you complain about things that happened years ago. Oh, and that sort of thing is now common with FCA teams.

Go get a box of tissues and cry and reminisce about what could have been with your sons B team.

Why are you referencing looneys green? You accuse some unknown poster of being critical and full of hate. Then make a negative statement about a team you obviously of no clue about.

LOL. Just ask them. Just ask them why they were in the NPYLL and then left to be part of a mediocre HoCo league.

The guys who originally founded Looney's were the ones who were responsible for putting kids on the field who were on the roster. They cheated, got caught, and were kicked out. 100% true.

1. Not apparently. It did happen. Are you too scared to ask the Looney's leadership about it?

2. The current Looney's BOD includes the guys who founded the club AND were the ones who oversaw the cheating.

3. Even if your coaches weren't involved, aren't you embarrassed to be part of a cheating club?

4. Someone told me the current leadership folded their junior and sophomore teams. That is incredible.

Lots of crazy people in lacrosse at Crabs and FCA. But Looney's is the clear #1.

nobody but you care about something that happened "how long ago"? Most families are happy with Looney's current teams, coaches, and direction the club is going. sorry whatever happened 5+ years ago affected you to the point that you insist to bring it up and talk about it, maybe you should see a shrink to get over your problems.

Totally wrong. I cannot say this did or didn't happen, I wasn't involved in club lacrosse 6 or 7 years ago. If it did, so what, look at what is happening now with Crabs and FCA. They are doing much more than what is being described that Looney's did. Crabs and their leader, the king of cheats Ryan M is clearly in a far distance #1 position followed closely by FCA. These two clubs are clearly the major cheaters of youth lacrosse today and will continue until someone comes down on them. Only problem is king cheat Ryan M has too much influence on youth lacrosse and will not allow any one or any thing to get in his way. He is in it for the money and to brag that he has the best teams etc.

guess you didn't see the word "current"
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Maryland, D.C., Virginia Fall 2015 Summer 2016 Lacrosse - 02/03/16 10:13 PM
Yeah, those teams are no longer current because the club abandoned those players and parents. Classy.

"talks about sports team as we 7 us?". What does that mean. Obviously English is not your first language, you are on here criticizing people when you can't even speak clearly. Let it go.

No, your bad goes well beyond not knowing how to type and then making excuses. You are just a plain POS that has nothing in his life and as a result of that you feel it is necessary to trash Looney's. Well, hate to tell you numb nuts but Looney's would never want to be associated with a dbag like you.

No anger issues at all. Far from it, I am way above taking time to trash a club team, but this seems to be your mission at the present time, or maybe it is all the time. Seems you are the one with the anger issues, and I bet it goes way beyond youth lax. I do not have a son in club lax, he is playing for a top Div 1 program, has a sweet lax scholarship entering his second year and is enjoying life. Too bad your little boy is probably on a sub B youth team, asking you "daddy why can't I play on an AA, I'm not a looser like you".

You can have lunch as soon as you complete your job tasks, the restrooms need cleaning, including the toilets and the kitchen needs attention as well. We don't pay you $6 an hour to sit on your butt. And the next time we see you on the internet trashing a club team, you're fired. We don't want to see that happen, a loser like you this is probably the best job you have ever had.

stop dwelling on the past, try to be a better father to your son. maybe, start paying the child support to your ex-wife. it would be terrible for your son to see you go to jail for being a deadbeat dad.

Boy, you were paying attention. That was there on purpose to see if you would catch it. I am amazed that you did. No, he is not on the sidelines, he runs first midfield, something you or your son never did/will achieve. And while I do not have a son playing club lax I still coach on a successful club team, again something your son will never achieve or see, not if he acts like a dbag like you and you know he is going to, because I would bet you act this way about everything in life and he sees it, at least on the weekends you have visitation rights. Must be tough for you having to work outside all the time digging ditches and never really getting ahead. Must be the root of your anger/hate issues.

Bethesda 2021 was 1-1 vs. Hawks 2022. Spring will not be easy for any team.

FCA over Hawks in Goals 2020 league. Both Looneys teams eliminated in Semis.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Maryland, D.C., Virginia Fall 2015 Summer 2016 Lacrosse - 02/08/16 02:22 PM
Not really 1-1. The first game was not the Bethesda 2021 Blue Team - anyone who saw yesterday's game knows the difference - was a blowout - and could have been worse. Hawks 22 is a Top 22 Team, but can't compete with a top 21 team - no shame in that - they are not supposed to.

No one said anything about Spring being easy - comment was tough to beat.

Looneys Green only qualified for semis due to a light schedule all season. Of course FCA rolled right over them with an easy first game. That and older kids.

There reasons behind every loss.

Posted By: Anonymous Re: Maryland, D.C., Virginia Fall 2015 Summer 2016 Lacrosse - 02/08/16 08:01 PM
sometimes a reason is pretty valid - like the fact that the team that lost was not the same team that won. Bethesda threw 7 kids together (no subs) for the first game - instead of forfeiting - because kids were playing other sports - including putting an attackman in goal.

BLC 2021 would never beat the Hawks 2020 - or any other Tope Tier 2020 - the year is a HUGE difference. They are even with Hawks 2021, but give it a rest - Hawks 2022 - not even remotely competitive with Top Tier 2021 teams. Never the case.

Soooooo glad Hawks 2022 lost. The coach is a complete meathead. Dude, try decaf. The parents have to be the most obnoxious around. Not a fun group.

The non-MD clubs better get a fair shake in this new HoCo world. For example, if Madlax 2020 is not put in the top tier AA category, you'll know the fix is in. It will be because the other MD clubs are trying to shut out the best challengers to the Baltimore crown.

Really? That's the only reason they wouldn't be in the top bracket? Not because they went 2-5 last year and came in 6th place in NPYLL?

Ha -nice try. HoCo league does not bow to coach/director pressure. Please. No Madlax 2020 has been top tier in years. I am sure they would give you a refund if you ask nicely.

Actually, they're a really fun group. Coach is not a meathead. You obviously don't know him. A super coach who is dedicated and smart.

And the league is supposed to take your word for it that you have had major improvement? Sorry, record - both prior year and fall is indicative of where you belong this year. Work hard, improve your record and convince people and maybe you can play in the top bracket next year.

Obviously you live in a county that got the day off from school. Get off the message boards and go hit the bounce back kid, your team obviously needs you to get better.
