What are the top player development 2024 teams. My daughter plays for M and D but the coaching is just ok. We've also tried out for Skywalkers which was a positive experience and will try out for TLC this week. Thanks. More concerned about player development than winning.

How were the numbers at Skywalkers? How was the talent level?

Best 2024 team (wins and losses) and player development is HoCo. 2025 and 2023 teams are also really good at player development.

HoCo ok. How about Hero's they seem like a good program.

Good numbers. High talent level. Positive coaches. Better tryout experience than M & D.

My daughter plays for C2 2024. Excellent player development. Caring consistent coaches. Was very competitive last year against the "big teams". And most of all made it fun for these young girls learning to play this great sports.

This is funny. In what parallel universe is HoCo the best team at any age? Maybe if you choose not to play the actual best teams.

Okay - you're saying HoCo clubs development is good - where's the evidence? Don't tell me about tournaments wins and losses - that's not what we're discussing. I want to know about the bottom line or in other words the elephant in the room. The reason why parents shell out the money and give up most of their summers for their girls to play club lacrosse. I'm sure people want to know about the rate of return that they would get from handing over the $1,500 or so to HoCo club. What's their recruiting support like? What sort of networks do they have regarding college coaches? Which schools are grabbing up HoCo club girls?

I think it is a good starter club for those on a budget. It really depends on the Coach assigned to your age group and their actual involvement. I found Cobra to be disappointing esp with parent coaches, favoritism, and good old howard county politics.

Why is M&D 2025 playing up? they had teams in the other bracket that were 2025? Is it for the competition? Watched them (2025 team) play a couple games, seem like they are going to be really good vs other 2025 teams.

That's because it's the one team the Kennedy's let someone else coach. That will end soon enough and that team will be done just like the 20s, 21s, 22s, and 23s before them. Why people still pay those guys the crazy amount of money they charge is beyond me. Snake Oil Salesman

I'm not a c2 hater but they will not field a 24 team. Those girls already know where they're going next year.

The c2 owners keep trying to promise things to parents but after this past season it is too late.

I think redshirts and C2 girls will get playing time cause the ones who will probably move will bump some of M&D's weaker bottom roster players. They will add a lot of depth to that team. The M&D team may have rolled this year but the competition will get stronger as they age.

That is a top heavy team and some redshirts/C2 girls will help tremendously. I feel for the bottom half of the M&D team cause there's a lot of strong players coming.

And that's just c2 & redshirts. I imagine some hero's, skywalkers, and girls from other teams will try out too.

Should be interesting

Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2024 - 07/21/17 04:47 PM
Hopefully a C2 parent can say what they were promised.

This year they were coach-less for half the season. And when they had a coach it was a young girl who didn't always show.

They were also told the 24 team would merge with another club's 24s and make 2 teams ( a and b) Also not true

It would be awesome if they can still have a 24 team. We need more good teams in the NGLL - not less. I just don't see girls coming to tryouts like what happened with the 25s last summer

Several things amaze me about these posts:

1. Lack of substance and I am sure accuracy - this seems like a great place to start/spread rumors.
2. Over-emphasized importance of 11 year old girls club lacrosse - parents are CRAZY in what they think this means for them (i mean their daughters)
3. Literally no shame - I wonder if many of these people are psychotically passionate about their job and destroying the other companies in which they compete with.
4. GET A LIFE!!!

What will the Redshirts impact have on the surrounding clubs? Is Hoco getting stronger?...sure are and they have very good coaching paying off..Will Heros & Skywalkers best players potentially leave to join Redshirts best players for a developing M&D team (McD future team)? Many club teams need to take a hard look at what they have, who's potentially coming out for tryouts and up their game when it comes to coaching or things are going to spiral out of control rather quickly. Middle school years are huge folks.....be good consumers and put your daughters in the best situation possible. The lacrosse club scene is evolving so hold on.

Saw this on the 2022 forum page in response to donations adding about stacking all the club tryouts on the same week...
"Were you at the Rebels tryouts last weekend? They were not "stacked". I think the clubs would not all try to get their tryouts in if the parents stopped trying to "hedge" their bets and attend multiple tryouts. If you are as honestly confident about your kid's ability then it would really be simple enough to pick one club and hope for the best. But, if you want to go and spend the $200 plus trying out for as many as you can - have at it. Besides, the club directors and coaches all know who is attending which tryouts. Those parents that you see at the various tryouts are dropping the dime on you in order to secure a spot on M&D black for their kid."

What are your thoughts about attending multiple tryouts? I didn't grow up around lacrosse and came from a house of football players, so this is all new territory for my wife and i. We thought attending multiple tryouts only made sense, since there is no guarantee our daughter will make a certain team. Isn't that what we should do?

Where I choose to spend my money is my business. And where I so choose to take my daughter for tryouts is also my business. If it gives parents a little more "leverage" with the clubs as far as accepting spots on a team - then that's good. As a consumer - it's my choice. Offer me a product that I want to buy into and I will write the check. This is not a birthday party we are planning at 'Skyzone' or whatever - this is an investment in our daughter's future.

I don't understand why someone would say that about tryouts. Why would you not attend multiple tryouts. Supposed you tryout for one team and not multiple tryouts and your daughter doesn't make that one team. You're screwed unless you actually want to call up a team and say "hey I tried for M&D but didn't make it - you were an afterthought - but since I didn't make it can I now come to your team. That's preposturous. People on that 22 board are nuts.

Go to as many tryouts as you see fit. Especially since you're going to spend $1,800 - $2,300 depending on where you land

Redshirts does do a good job developing girls with their softhands training. Maybe that's why the bigger clubs like to go after the redshirts girls. This way they don't have to worry about developing them. I don't see a problem with starting with one club then moving on to bigger things.

That is a unique view of "average at best". Winning 2 of 4 tournaments and 7-1 in spring league is hardly average. It's a really good team. Assuming a coach simply wants to coach the best team is also not exactly logical either.
