Is NCS going to be respectable this year?
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls High School - 09/02/16 04:30 PM
what is NCS? McDonogh will dominate again. IAAM should be competitive from 2nd thru 10. Interested to see how Glenelg Country does moving up to A conference from B conference.

Century usually gives McD some headaches as well.

If you say so. Keep an eye on SPSG and Century will be in it to win it as well.

great game yesterday at McDonogh, vs Garrison Forest School. McDonogh pulled out a real close game 13-11. at one point the game was 10-9, and Garrison scored, but the goal was called back for shooting space foul. McDonogh ended up stopping the ensuing shot and scored on a fastbreak. McDonogh then went to a stall ball approach to kill the clock.

Looking forward to seeing how Mount de Sales does against McD this Saturday. The new coach looks like he has the team firing on all cylinders and they can really show their growth and development under him. I’m really looking forward to the draw middies’ matchup – that’s going to be back and forth all game. And with the experienced senior leadership on defense this year – they will definitely show their metal.

This will be a good barometer for Mount de Sales to see how well this season will progress.

Do not see a competitive game here.

I have to disagree. MDSA is on an upward trajectory. The new coaches are breathing new life into this program. It is really starting to gel. The D is tough as nails and there are some middies that can really move the ball in transitions. There are sniper feeders on attack with tall girls that can finish. This is going to be closer than everyone thinks.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls High School - 03/24/17 11:18 PM
Is McD does not win by at least 10, consider it a major victory for MDSA. The athletes at the 2 schools are in completely different leagues, and new coach is not in Chris Robinson's league..fact

The new MDSA coach is no comparison to MG. she is one of the best coaches out there. Mcd will win by at least 12 tomorrow.

MCD was up by 12 at the half and 15 with 10 minutes left.

So McDonough only scored 5 goals in the second half? That don't sound right.

DeSales is coming together as a team - they just had two close losses. The girls could finally be buying into the new system. It probably will not be long until they get over the hump and start firing on all cylinders. It would not surprise me if that happens during the next game or two. They could end up surprising some people.

Now that the high school season has almost come to an end, I would like to throw out an option for those senior players that still haven't found a college lacrosse home yet. My daughter plays for Anne Arundel Community College and they had a very good season this year, making it to the national semi-finals. AACC is just a couple of good players away from getting back to the national tournament next season and I know there are quite a few good players in the Annapolis/Baltimore area who are wanting to continue to play college lacrosse while getting a great education at the same time, at a nice low price. AACC has a long history of players who have moved on to 4 year schools, too. Also, AACC's women's lacrosse team is D1 in the NJCAA and has the option of giving an athletic scholarship. Let me say again, I am a parent and am not affiliated with the school or team, officially. But, I do know they are good and can get better with a couple of good players. We all know that there's always the player who changes her mind in the fall or doesn't go back to the college after winter break, wants to stay local or the family has financial limits. AACC is looking for you too. If interested in staying local and playing, getting a great education and spending less money for it is something you may be interested, please go to the AACC Athletics webpage and send the coach a message via the recruit questionnaire.

McDonogh not be the same. Nancy Love is the interim coach and the Associate Head of Upper School and Director of Boarding at McDonogh. Earlier this year several McDonogh student/athletes were expelled for rape and sexual assaults inside the McDonogh dorms. I'm surpised she still retained her job.

The new McDonogh coach is the Director of Boarding at the school. Curious how she still has a job after what went down there. Just expelling the kids involved is not sufficient. Some adult should be held accountable for what went on. I am sure the school will be sued by the parents of the Freshman boys involved.

Since you are clearly very concerned about this, maybe you should speak with her parents to get the answers you need. I’m sure they would love to discuss this with you. If it doesn’t affect you why do you care what level she is playing on? Seriously, you must have something better than this to worry about. Also, if your intention was for all of LI to see this you probably shouldn’t post it on the MD forum. U2twz

Taylor Cummings has been named the new McDonogh varsity lacrosse coach.




We would like to take this opportunity to thank Nancy Love for stepping in as the interim Head Coach of the girls varsity lacrosse team for the 2018 season. Nancy went above and beyond the call of duty and did an outstanding job along with her assistants, Taylor Cummings '12, Mary Beth Todd '02, and Eva Winiarski. We will be forever grateful to Nancy for her time, expertise, and love for the team. We know the girls will always remember how she made them feel—valued, important, and proud to be a part of a special legacy.



After 14 years of complete dedication to the team, Nancy has decided it is time to step away from her role as a varsity coach. Although, she is quick to add that she will always be there to support the girls and the coaches off the field in any way that would be helpful. Nancy will continue her administrative responsibilities as Associate Head of Upper School and Director of Boarding.



As we look to the 2019 season, we are happy to announce that Taylor Cummings will be the new Girls Varsity Lacrosse Head Coach. She will also teach physical education classes beginning this fall. Taylor was a Golden Eagle during her high school years at McDonogh, playing varsity soccer, basketball, and lacrosse. She was also The Baltimore Sun's Athlete of the Year in 2011 and 2012. Taylor went on to the University of Maryland where she led the Terps to two NCAA tournament titles and was the first-ever three-time winner of the Tewaaraton Award, which is presented annually to the most outstanding American college lacrosse player. Since graduating from Maryland, Taylor has focused her attention on growing the game of lacrosse and hosting clinics and camps. She is also Regional Director for WPLL Futures, a national program for high school girls that focuses on lacrosse, character, and leadership.



Mary Beth Todd and Eva Winiarski will continue to be assistant coaches. Mary Beth, who was a standout soccer, basketball, and lacrosse player at McDonogh and played soccer at the University of Delaware, is Head of our Physical Education Department, a dorm parent, and a member of McDonogh's Athletic Hall of Fame. Eva, who played lacrosse at Drexel University and was captain of the 2017 team, teaches Middle School language arts and coaches Middle School field hockey and basketball.



Please join us in thanking Nancy for everything she has done for the girls lacrosse program over the years and welcoming Taylor back to the Nest in her new role as Head Coach! We are confident that Taylor's knowledge of the game, as well as her passion, work ethic, and boundless energy, will have a positive impact on the girls and the program in the years to come.



-------------------------------------------------------



I hope you are having a fantastic ending to the 2018 school year and are enjoying all of the festivities that come along with it. I've met some of you through assisting with this year's varsity program and others from various camps and clinics, but I wanted to take a moment to personally introduce myself to the McDonogh girls lacrosse community as a whole.



For those of you I haven't met, my name is Taylor Cummings, and I am excited to be the new Head Coach of the Girls Varsity Lacrosse program. I graduated from McDonogh in 2012 and went on to play at the University of Maryland for the next four years. After graduating in 2016, I started my own company that provides lacrosse training through camps and clinics across the country. I also play for the U.S. Women's National Team.



My most recent job, however, is one of my very favorite experiences. This spring, I had the incredible honor of working with McDonogh's varsity program under my former coach and incredible mentor, Nancy Love, and alongside two other amazing coaches and people, Mary Beth Todd '02 and Eva Winiarski. Along with our group of unbelievably talented young women, we had an incredibly successful season.



As you can probably tell, lacrosse has most certainly become my life. It has not only kept me healthy and fulfilled my competitive drive, but it has been the vehicle through which I have learned some of life's challenging lessons. I've had my share of successes and failures on and off the field, and I have been able to navigate all of them because of everything I've learned through this sport. More so, over my years of playing and coaching, I've had incredible opportunities to form relationships, friendships, and memories that will last a lifetime.



Mary Beth, Eva, and I are tremendously invested in providing these same opportunities and helping players become successful young women at McDonogh and beyond. We are committed to using lacrosse to help student-athletes learn life lessons, build character, and develop invaluable and intangible skills they will use throughout their lives. In addition, we want every player to have fun and grow as a person and player each and every day.



This philosophy is not only relevant to the varsity program but to every level and age group within the McDonogh community. I want you to know that the coaching staff and players are looking forward to sharing our love of the sport with girls of all ages (PK-12) through on-field instruction and meaningful off-field interaction.



I am so honored, humbled, and immensely thankful for this incredible opportunity, and I cannot wait to get started. If you have any questions or would like to meet with me in person, please feel free to reach out. The more we can all get to know one another, the better our program will be as a whole. Thank you for your time. GO EAGLES!!



Sincerely,



Taylor Cummings '12

Does anyone know how the “uncommitted” roster works? Would those selected already know?

according to UALax website:

UNCOMMITTED SHOWCASE

Each year there are very talented players who are on the cusp of making the regional Underclass teams, but are not selected. Aside from the 22 players chosen for each team, four uncommitted (to college) players from each of the graduating classes will be invited to compete and showcase themselves in front of scores of coaches at Towson University on Under Armour All-America Weekend.

A total of 48 players in each of the graduating classes – 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022 – for both boys and girls will be invited to participate event weekend. Players will be selected by the regional evaluators and coaches after the final regional teams are picked. Teams will be divided accordingly.

*You must have participated in the regional tryouts to be eligible for the Underclass Showcase.

I'm not sure if everyone is aware, but there is currently a NCAA proposal to change the recruiting calendar to allow contact starting 6/15 after 10th grade and visits and offers to begin 8/1. This would change the current date of 9/1 of junior year for all contact. This proposal has been recommended by the NCAA Student-Athlete Experience Committee for all sports but Football, Basketball, Baseball and Hockey. This proposal was approved for a final vote in April by the NCAA Council. This week the ACC has submitted a request to amend this proposal to keep the 9/1 date for lacrosse. This will now also be voted on in April. I'm not sure if most of you agree, but the current 9/1 date has several issues. First off, we are all forced to blindly spend money for our kids to attend camps, clinics, etc. While we can hear if a school has "general interest" some schools don't even offer that much. Allowing contact on 6/15 would make it possible to have real discussions with the coaches to gauge their actual level of interest, where the player is on their list and other useful information. It also provides an opportunity to being to create a relationship with the coaches that will be coaching your child for 4 years. As you all are aware, the 9/1 date does not remove the recruiting pressure on the kids. Coaches still watch the games years prior to that date. If anything the pressure is worse because the kids have no idea where they stand. Moving the visit date to 8/1 also allows the kids to more easily play fall sports. Most soccer, field hockey, football coaches aren't going to be too thrilled with kids missing Friday and weekend practices or even games because they need to go visit colleges for lacrosse. Coaches say they want multiple sport athletes yet pass rules that make it very difficult to play a fall sport junior year.

It has been expressed to me that it would be very beneficial for as many parents as possible to send letters/emails to the chair of the NCAA council prior to the April vote expressing concerns with the 9/1 date and support for the new proposal which is Proposal 2018-93. I am including the email below for the current and incoming Chairs. I hope we as a community can come together and try to make sure this positive change can pass.

Current Chair:
Blake James bjames@miami.edu
Incoming Chair:
Dr. M. Grace Calhoun athdir@pobox.upenn.edu

What does the IAAM looking like this year? McDonogh graduated a ton, but have a ton coming back. Interesting to see how Taylor does in her first year as coach. NDP graduated a ton, but not sure what they have left, They practically dress half the school on the sideline. Spalding or Glenelg Country have a shot? Bryn Mawr and Roland Park?

There are a lot of talented freshmen coming in, however NDP doesn’t have the room for them on Varsity. Their JV will be the strongest out there because of it.

I can only speak to NDP's sophomore class. They have several SW and several TLC players. The rest of the top club players in town are split between McDonough and St Pauls and then sprinkled among the rest of the schools in town. That group of NDP sophomores is very, very good.

St. Marys has a chance to be really good. Everyone pretty much returns from last year and they picked up a solid 2020 goalie that transferred. A

Glenelg Country has a very good senior class but very young after that..2 jr, 4 soph and 13 fresh.

Every year parents of ALL schools, not just NDP, talk trash about how they will beat McD and then don’t. Well, except NDP. They have earned the right to talk trash.
It will be a good year for a lot of schools. The 2022 class is a very talented one across the board and that will make for some really good lacrosse games this season.
Good luck to everyone.

The talent on the 21 SW team is at JC, SPSG, BM, McD and Gerstell. None of the 2021 SW girls at NDP are difference makers. There is one TLC 2021 girl at NDP that is good. I'd ease up on the very, very good talk.

Gerstell openly advertises athletic scholarships. Other schools hide behind financial aid and named scholarships where part of the criteria is athletic prowess.

The top 2021's in the area are at McD, SPSG, Glenelg Country and a lot are at public schools. Bryn Mawr has a few. SPSG has 12 2021 girls from M&D, SW, Heros and TLC. McD has half that but they are all good players. GCS has most of the top Heros girls. You use the excuse that most of the NDP freshman weren't on varsity last year because there are so many players there. But if that's the case shouldn't NDP's JV team have been better last year?

NDP lost a ton of talent from last year's team. And contrary to popular belief there isn't a bunch of talent there to replace them.

If you think it's worth all the money by all means shell it out. Chris will appreciate it I'm sure. There's a reason all the top players stopped attending.

Everyone who says this is not worthwhile either did apply in time or did not get accepted. it's not any more expensive than similar tournaments and the list of colleges attending is much better than last year.

Funny. This is always the response. I bet your daughter was selected as an all star last year at the UA150 and you made sure to tell everyone about it to.

Maybe my daughter attended two years ago and saw how useless it was. My daughter was invited last year but did not attend. But from what I was told last year was no better other than they gave out a lot of swag to make up for the lack of coaches. As I've said, none of the top girls attend anymore. Look at last year's rosters. Their still up on the site. There are hardly any M&D, SW, YJ 2021 girls. On the bright side it's much easier to get an invite now. In fact, both the Nike 120 and UA 150 were still sending out emails trying to get girls to attend only a few weeks out from the event last year.

By all means spend the money for a day and a half of lacrosse if you want. There is no instruction going on. It is what it is. The girls are in high school. They should be trying to make their regional Under Armour teams.

The top players aren't going to be at UA 150. So not sure it's the best place to measure herself against them. If it's a non-traditional area, you should have a good shot at making the Schoolgirls team or UA Underclass team. Those two events have tons of coaches and don't cost much(UA Underclass is free if you make the team). Other than that, you are much better off spending the money going to a couple camps of schools that your daughter is interested in. Especially if those schools have shown interest in your daughter. At this point most girls should know some schools that are interested in her. Plan your summer accordingly.

My daughter did not attend nor apply last year so therefore I did not tell anyone about it.

2. Maybe my daughter attended two years ago and saw how useless it was.

Did she attend or not..it's a pretty simple answer

3. My daughter was invited last year but did not attend.

Wait a minute. If she maybe attended 2 years ago and saw how useless it was why did she apply again last year. I'm stumped

4. By all means spend the money for a day and a half of lacrosse if you want. There is no instruction going on

No where on the UA 150 webiste does it say anything about instruction. It's about the games and the Parisi combine

5. They should be trying to make their regional Under Armour teams.

My daughter was on the UA All American Baltimore Command team last year..was yours?

Like I said it's usually the parents who did not apply in time or weren't accepted that belittle these type of events. I saw it last year with the UA All American games. Parent's who were late in applying or who's kid did not make the cut belittled the tournament as useless

My daughter was also on UA Underclass team last year. Went to UA 150 and Nike 120 two years ago. They were both a waste of time and money. She applied because we had not yet made a decision on whether she would go again but when the time came we decided not to spend the money. Instead she went to 2 college camps last summer for not much more money.

My comment about instruction was in comparison in what you get for the money when you go to a camp. Playing 6 games in front of mostly D3 coaches is not worth the exorbitant fees in my opinion. There are games being played on 4 fields. You will be lucky for your daughter to be watched twice over a 2 day span by any of the few good D1 schools.

What exactly is the benefit of the Parisi Combine? There is none. Do you really think college coaches give a darn about the results?

These used to be great events when they were held in January. Tons of coaches came as it was during their down time. When they changed the recruiting calendar it ruined them. Coaches are on the road every weekend watching tournament games all summer. UA 150 is the week between Nike G8 and Mid-Atlantic. It's easy for Maryland, Loyola, Navy, etc to attend as they're local. USC is always there because they just stay on east coast that week. Most coaches don't want to stay in MD all week after being in Jersey that weekend, they want to go home for a few days.

The event serves a purpose for certain kids. As long as your expectations are not too high in terms of exposure by all means go ahead and attend.

I would rather my daughter spend $600 and get seen by 3 coaches on her list than spend the same amount on one camp where you get instruction from current players, some who never touch the field. I guess this is where that “to each his own” statement comes into play.

Funny. This is always the response. I bet your daughter was selected as an all star last year at the UA150 and you made sure to tell everyone about it to.

Maybe my daughter attended two years ago and saw how useless it was. My daughter was invited last year but did not attend. But from what I was told last year was no better other than they gave out a lot of swag to make up for the lack of coaches. As I've said, none of the top girls attend anymore. Look at last year's rosters. Their still up on the site. There are hardly any M&D, SW, YJ 2021 girls. On the bright side it's much easier to get an invite now. In fact, both the Nike 120 and UA 150 were still sending out emails trying to get girls to attend only a few weeks out from the event last year.

By all means spend the money for a day and a half of lacrosse if you want. There is no instruction going on. It is what it is. The girls are in high school. They should be trying to make their regional Under Armour teams.

Lets dissect your wandering response:
1. I bet your daughter was selected as an all star last year at the UA150 and you made sure to tell everyone about it to.

My daughter did not attend nor apply last year so therefore I did not tell anyone about it.

2. Maybe my daughter attended two years ago and saw how useless it was.

Did she attend or not..it's a pretty simple answer

3. My daughter was invited last year but did not attend.

Wait a minute. If she maybe attended 2 years ago and saw how useless it was why did she apply again last year. I'm stumped

4. By all means spend the money for a day and a half of lacrosse if you want. There is no instruction going on

No where on the UA 150 webiste does it say anything about instruction. It's about the games and the Parisi combine

5. They should be trying to make their regional Under Armour teams.

My daughter was on the UA All American Baltimore Command team last year..was yours?

Like I said it's usually the parents who did not apply in time or weren't accepted that belittle these type of events. I saw it last year with the UA All American games. Parent's who were late in applying or who's kid did not make the cut belittled the tournament as useless



My daughter was also on UA Underclass team last year. Went to UA 150 and Nike 120 two years ago. They were both a waste of time and money. She applied because we had not yet made a decision on whether she would go again but when the time came we decided not to spend the money. Instead she went to 2 college camps last summer for not much more money.

thanks for your approval to attend, it means so much. BTW there are no college camps or these types events that will have over 35 colleges attending and they are a mixture of Top D1 all the way through NAIA. The more exposure the more options for schools to pick from. Even the UA All American games did not draw that many coaches for the Command or Highlight Underclass games. Yes college coaches do care about the speed results from the combine because you CANNOT TEACH SPEED..any college coach in any sport will tell you that

Please do not listen to this person...if your daughter applied and was excepted then by all means have her go. It cannot be a bad thing to be seen by head or assistant coaches from all or any of these colleges. Their bad experience may be your good experience

enough on the merits of the UA 150. Lets get back to the HS spring season.

what schools will be good in the Public schools? 4A?, 3A? 2A? 1A?

how about the IAAM B & C divison

Can Taylor Cummings be a successful head coach?
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls High School - 02/20/19 08:49 PM
Of course coaches like speed. Do you really think coaches go look at the results from the UA 150 parisi combine though? Of course not.

The UA Underclass games are free to play in as opposed to the crazy high fee for UA150. And you're crazy if you don't think there weren't more coaches from top D1 schools there than UA150.

UA150 costs twice as much as it should for what is provided. You get less exposure there than you will at G8 the weekend before or Mid-Atlantic the weekend after. If the goal is to just play games in front of college coaches tournaments blow UA150 out of the water. Camps are better if your daughter is interested in the school and wants to be able to actually interact with the coaches and current players and get a feel for the program.

Again, to each their own.

What about for a 2021 from a "non-traditional area"? Plays on a good club team. Would it be a worthwhile event to measure herself against other players?


The top players aren't going to be at UA 150. So not sure it's the best place to measure herself against them. If it's a non-traditional area, you should have a good shot at making the Schoolgirls team or UA Underclass team. Those two events have tons of coaches and don't cost much(UA Underclass is free if you make the team). Other than that, you are much better off spending the money going to a couple camps of schools that your daughter is interested in. Especially if those schools have shown interest in your daughter. At this point most girls should know some schools that are interested in her. Plan your summer accordingly.

apparently many of the area's top 22's and 21'su are going this year. Word was out on the college list for 2019


Per the above mention, trying to figure out what coaches will be there this year. I can only find the 2018 list. Thanks.

You're right. They asked for an honest response on if the UA 150. It's the best $600 you can spend.

That better?

What if girls don't know where they are interested in going or who is interested in them yet? Especially 2022's? Might be better served for now to be at UA in front of a variety of schools than going a specific school's summer camp yet. Looks like a good variety of schools. True that not a lot of players from top-tier teams were on the rosters the past years. And lack of high level schools. But now that recruiting guidelines have changed, it could have an effect on the caliber of this event - both in terms of colleges and players. A couple of years ago top girls were already committed by the time they were the ages of this year's UA150 players. I don't know the answers. But things to think about.

Well aren’t you snarky. Guessing your daughter was either recently cut or kept a lot of metal warm when she played.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls High School - 02/28/19 02:58 PM
FYI-what a waste of $$$. Let your D be a huge star at Public HS instead of paying money to sit the bench . College coaches don't watch HS lax just check the stats . I pulled my D from prep school 28,000 a year to public and she is committed to Ivy school now -go figure.

depends on your view of what a 'waste' is. many of these girls playing lax in private schools are not paying full price anyway. if you D is playing in the IAAM A then they are playing against top competition every game and probably in practice making them better for the summer club season when the college coaches are watching. My guess your daughter was getting into an Ivy regardless of a public or private education. Congrats and good for her.

I know people say high school isn't important for recruiting but it is important in training. High school coaches get your daughter 6 times a week for 2 months. Club is twic a week for 2 hours. Playing on a good high school team goes a far way in making them better players.

How much of a sales job is needed to convince your daughter that it's a good thing she's sitting at the tail end of a 40 man roster at a private school but, in the long run, the practices are worth it to further her career in college? Good god, high school sports should be about actually playing, if they have the ability, since they only have 4 years to enjoy it.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls High School - 03/04/19 02:09 PM
The sales pitch was the need to be at the private school in the first place. You will find this out but when the kids get recruited -the teams that will want them will not be the schools they want to attend academically. IAAM is great competition for HS lacrosse but most of the kids on the bench will not see the field in college either so pick the right fit for your child and if it doesnt work out -walk away from lacrosse. Also put that money in a 529 account instead of prep school coffers.

only go to a private prep if you are recruited by the coach. If you are on the coaches wish list then you are probably on varsity as freshmen and getting some playing time from the start... also probably getting a nice break in tuition.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls High School - 03/04/19 05:38 PM
It's the same sales pitch given by the top few clubs around MD to pad their rosters and increase the amount of money brought in by each team to the clubs' bank accounts. Nothing will replace playing time. Suddenly there's this pitch that being on the tale end a certain club teams' roster is "great" because even if you don't play you're "practicing with the best". And parents actually buy it. Yes you're on a winning team but if you're not in the top half of the team it's useless.

Man I wish I came up with this lie.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls High School - 03/06/19 04:11 PM
Something else to consider... - better yet here is the real truth that should be told...
The college lacrosse coaches will not let the contact date be moved up because these coaches are now making too much money from their camps.
Coaches want recruiting pushed back because coaches make huge money from the extra two years of camps from the Sophomore and Junior players who now go.
Coaches did not push recruiting back because it "was in the best interest of the players" they pushed it back because "it was in the best interest of coaches' pocketbooks". Follow the money!
Coaches want you to believe it is an amazing coincidence that the extra two months of July and August that the coaches claim "are needed so the players can mature" just happen to be the exact two months when coaches run their camps. What an amazing coincidence!
Players do not magically mature in July & August. It is because July and August are when coaches run their money making camps.
Sorry players, the NCAA, just like US Lacrosse, will put the money before the players.
By the way...
-Proposal 2018-93 is for June 15th contact
-Proposal 2018-93-2 is for Sept 1st contact
Please email:
bjames@miami.edu
athdir@pobox.upenn.edu
and tell them to vote June 15th not Sept 1st

What you say about college coaches is just not true of all of them. I spoke to a college coach about a month ago who is in favor of the contact date being moved to June. In fact, I believe the coaches are the ones who suggested to change. We will see how the vote goes.

The coaches did not suggest the change to 6/15. The NCAA Student Athlete Experience Committee did after a multi-year study. The IWLCA and IMLCA decided at their conferences this fall to submit a proposal to remove lacrosse from the 6/15 proposal. This was submitted by the ACC for vote in April. There are multiple versions of the proposal up for vote and lacrosse has requested to keep 9/1. I agree there are coaches that think 6/15 is a good idea, but the coach associations have selfishly requested to keep 9/1. Send emails!!!

You're right. NDP will drop quite a bit once the season starts. They lost way too much and don't have anyone to replace them.

McDonogh won't be at the top for long and probably won't even win the IAAM. They only topped Spalding 6-5 yesterday at home, scoring the game winner with under 20 seconds left. It should be interesting to see which team rises up and replaces them. It's certainly there for the taking.

Is this a joke? If their sophomores are so good why was only one on varsity last year?

They didn't help them much this morning in their 20-10 loss

McDonogh 6 - Spalding 5
Glenelg Country 11 - John Carroll 10
Maryvale 13 - Severn 8
SPSG 16 - Maryvale 8
RPCS 11 - St. Marys 7
Bryn Mawr 15 - Gerstell 8
John Carroll 10 - Gerstell 9

Looks like there's quite a bit of parity this year in IAAM. Should be a lot of close games. RPCS and NDP got beaten pretty badly out of conference this weekend.

Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls High School - 03/18/19 03:40 AM
It was a joke. NDP doesn't have the best sophomore class in the country. They don't have the best sophomore class in the IAAM. Most of their sophs are from TLC or are bench players for SW. Only two of them made varsity as freshman and only one contributed. Their JV team wasn't very good last year which wouldn't make sense if it was supposedly loaded with all these great sophomores that didn't make varsity last year. The best two 2021 club teams in Baltimore are SW and M&D. None of their top players are at NDP. NDP lost a TON of talent from last year's team and there is no one there to replace them.

Hi. Just posting here because some may have seen this before when their girls were younger. My daughter will be in high school in 2 years.
Has this ever happened or is this a thing?
My daughter plays club. Another friend from school plays club as well. They don’t see each other as much since they go to different schools now.

Not to overload you with details but as moms we used to share info like what camps are good vs waste of money etc. Now as middle schoolers it seems people are holding onto info more tightly and not sharing as much. We did a random camp this summer and this friend shows up where In the old days I would have heard about it from her mom but not anymore. I don’t think her mom wants her daughter playing with my daughter. Sounds weird bc they used to be good buddies from an old team. Just wondering if this sounds common or normal.

The mom is also not telling you that she is paying money for her daughter to work with a personal trainer and a separate lax trainer.

Yes ... this happens. But no it's not normal. Parents do not tell their friends and other parents from their teams about camps, leagues, training, out of club tournaments. Who knows why - probably to give their daughter a leg up.

When I played youth soccer our coach told every player and parents about every opportunity he heard of for extra play and arranged for us to do a couple things together. He wanted everyone on the team to get better - not just his daughter. It's not that way anymore

There are parents (one is particularly egregious) who take 1/2 of their club team and play in tournaments, camps, leagues, etc. and completely exclude the other girls on the team. No actually - its a group of parents. They're not playing in club sponsored activities so no one can actually stop them but you would think common decency would stop it. And they'd NEVER let that happen to their own children but that's the new normal. Worry about what benefits & advances your child and maybe a select few others . For all others - well too bad for them.

It will only get worse when your daughter gets to high school and the competition for things like looks from colleges/under armour, all american, and nike teams/write ups in the papers/spots on varsity & JV/ etc.

Use a forum like this to ask about certain camps. You'll probably get a better answer from anonymous parents on here who aren't worried about your kid outshining theirs

All of the camps, tournaments, UA sponsored events are all on the internet. All you need to do is search for it. I did not need any other parent to tell me about one of these events. I researched them and figured out which ones were worth paying for. Do not be dependent on others when all that is needed is a little research effort.

Ah yes, the "if everyone can't do it then no one should be able to do it" thought process. Does everyone on the team have to be friends all the time? It sounds like they are excluding some but not all. Maybe you can take the reins and your own time and efforts and organize a few things and someone will reciprocate for you.

All these camps, 7v7's, etc are on the schools website. Some parents research these things and some don't. It's not someone else's job to make sure your daughter attends certain events. 7v7s and things like that have a limited allowed roster size. Yes certain players like playing together in these things. Doesn't mean they are excluding others but usually girls prefer to play with the girls they are closer to. Put another team together if your daughter wants to go and she wasn't asked to be on a team.

Regarding 2018-93, the $ greedy college coaches want to keep the lacrosse date 9/1 because 9/1 enables coaches to run another round of money making summer camps .
If the date was 6/15 coaches would commit the "true recruits" the coaches were truly interested in on 6/15 and then the 100's of mislead non-recruits would not go to the coaches' money making camps.
The coaches had a stronger argument when they moved recruiting back 3 YEARS. But now the extra 2 MONTHS coaches want are just for the coaches to make money on 2 months of camps.
Players do not miraculously mature in those last 2 months. It is those 2 months the coaches want to make more money from camps.
The lacrosse coaches want 9/1 instead of 6/15 because of $ greed.
As usual US Lacrosse has sold out to the money and the coaches instead of putting the kids first. Let's hope the NCAA puts the kids first this time.
The NCAA needs to stand up to the coaches and make the date 6/15 like the other sports.

The lacrosse coaches want 9/1 instead of 6/15 because of $ greed.
As usual US Lacrosse has sold out to the money and the coaches instead of putting the kids first. Let's hope the NCAA puts the kids first this time.
The NCAA needs to stand up to the coaches and make the date 6/15 like the other sports.

Proposal #'s:
2018-93 is for June 15th contact like other sports
2018-93-2 is Lax Coach Camp $ greed Sept 1


Sorry. I am all for 9/1


I'm all for no more spamming all the threads with the same 6/15 post.

Thanks coach / camp director!
June 15th gives an informed player the choice to attend camp or not.
September 1st keeps the power, information and the player's money in the hands of the coaches.
September 1st keeps players in the dark and allows coaches to take more of the ignorant player's money.
Here is a little secret...everybody gets invited to the camp with a personalized "first name" email invitation...don't get fooled.

Hey, any news on the 6/15 recruiting?

No, that information has been deemed classified by the "no spammer" coach.

No really, not sure the date of the vote.

I agree with Shot clock as well. I also think the yellow card should be released if goal is scored. One yellow card in HS can ruin a great game. Keep like college. Give them one goal not 5 in 2 minutes. Not to be hard on refs but they ruined a game this year with multiple questionable yellows which turned into multiple goals. The impact of a yellow in HS is multiplied. That is a rules issue, not refs.

The June 15th date is bad for the coaches because coaches want players to keep going to their $$ camps.
If it was June 15th then players would be able to make a much more informed decision as to what coaches had TRUE interest, not just fake marketing campaigns to lure kids who the coaches have zero interest in.

The coaches are misleading everyone, some could say flat out lying to everyone.

This change is not about recruiting in 6th grade or any other type of early recruiting.

This is about 78 days.

What is the benefit of waiting 78 days?
Until someone tells me differently I can only think it is an additional 78 days of camps.

What do the children get by having access 78 days sooner?
Seems to me that the PSA can use that 78 days to use real information to evaluate where they want to spend 4 years of their lives.
Some will even be able to start their Junior year of HS and the others will also have their process start a little sooner.

Again this is about 78 days........NOT Early recruiting. Early recruiting has been stopped.

Amazing game by St Pauls and McDonogh in the IAAM Conference A Championship on Saturday. Double overtime win by McDonogh but could have been won by either team. Packed stands at Gerstell Academy for the game. Beautiful campus. Goalie for St Pauls was a lockdown stud. Maryland high school girls lacrosse have such tremendous athletes.

It's not the recruiting tournament it claims to be and it's just another money grab for Corrigan Sports . had a daughter tryout for the command team the last year and this year and there was a big difference in the process from last year to this year. more evaluators for the command team had kids trying out for the command team than last year, one evaluator had 2 kids trying out. to much heros and m&d involvement in the evaluation process and it showed in the callback game. i must say it was not a very well run or thought out eval process this year. last year was much better.

I’m guessing SW is for Skywalkers. She does not play on that club.. Just my opinion on the difference between last year and this year. I dint think the team has been announced yet.

Yes they did leave money on the table without a doubt especially some game 23s that are better then the bottom 3-4 22s that made it. This is still a good line up though and will do fine in the tournament and let’s be honest this is supposed to be a recruiting tournament and college coaches don’t want to see 23s yet. Probably a good idea to not even allow them to participate except for the $$ they would be turning away.

The Highlight head coach didn't put a single player from his school on the team.

The NDP girls that made the command team play for M&D and SW. If they didn't play well at the tryout they wouldn't be on the team. UA really is based on how the girls do in those 4 or 5 hours. They don't take into account where they play or whether they are on JV or Varsity because that can differ based on where they go to school.

All I've seen is complaining based on where kids go to school and not arguing that the girls that made the team didn't play well on Sunday. I'm guessing that they played well.

It’s not really sour grapes.
Nothing lacrosse related in this mid atlantic region will ever be decided based solely on merit. When you have evaluators who have their own kids/club players/high school players on the field, you will never get a a fair outcome. Everyone knows it, everyone complains about it, everyone comes on here and cries about it, and then a week later everyone stops whining and moves on to the next unfair tryout, where the cycle starts all over again. The same dad/coach/evaluator(s) will be at every event So if you are really that upset about it, get off the merry-go-round.

If you can’t have your kids in the IAAM schools for whatever reason, get them on a good club and make it work. We have a girl from frederick on our Baltimore team. She carpools with another family. Not everyone on the team is private school. You just have to play the best to get better.

Whatever. The truth is if your daughter is really talented she will have a good chance. It's a tough team to make. Check the command and highlight rosters from last two years. It's a lot of the same girls and several of them don't play for the coaches of the UA team. People complain and complain, but sometimes talent wins out. There are a ton of evaluators at the tryouts. Different evaluators each year. And yet some of these same girls make it multiple times. These are also the same girls that will commit to the top college programs but I guess you feel like the college coaches don't know what they are doing either.

Everyone is beating a dead horse. The same evaluator, plus or minus a few will always be the evaluators until their own daughters/club players graduate. Accept and move on or like the post said earlier get off the merry go round.

Either accept and move on or like the previous post said get off the merry go round. Whether players got special treatment or not because of who the evaluators and coaches are, every name on that list is a strong, athletic, fast player and well deserving, whether 8th grade, JV, bench V or V.

Most of them probably read this forum, so why not congratulate them instead.

Take a look at the UA Highlight roster. Of the 23 girls, 10 play for M&D 2020 or 2021, 6 play for SW 2020 or 2021. If your daughter is good enough M&D or SW will take her. The earlier you get her there the better as those clubs do the best job developing talent. There are always girls at he bottom of the roster that are replaceable, but once you get to high school the rosters basically lock down. At tryouts they are looking for athletes with good stick skills and high lacrosse IQ. Doesn't hurt to tryout and see.

Call up MD & SW, they are always looking for new players.

OK- Girls going into grade 9 do not need to tryout for their current club teams?
Why are SW and MD and a few others holding tryouts?
Daughters club is not having tryout for her age level - grade 9. Club is demanding payment for the next year right away which doesn't give you a chance to try out or look around at others unless you want to be late on payments?
How do the coaches fill in holes on our team if not holding tryouts?

They don't. Clubs other than M&D and SW get more holes, not fill them. In 9th grade, when girls go "tryout" for M&D and SW they have already been offered a spot and the tryout is a mere formality.

Not sure what game you were watching, but the Balt team was terrible. Middies slow, not fast enough to transition or get back on defense. It's gonna be a long weekend watching this show.

The Conny team came out firing and never stopped, and Baltimore was shell shocked. They won 90% of the draws, and the Baltimore defense failed miserably, which left the goalies high and dry. #1 on Conny could not be stopped, and beat every defender on her for the feed inside the 8m or the drive to goal herself.
Baltimore team is stacked and will regroup. The coaching staff is too good not to change the issues for the games that count.

2-2 impressive way to back into the playoffs. Such high expectations for what should be the #1 team in the country if the coaches would of chosen more wisely. You should be so proud Ann your daughter is truly a beast couldn’t be more happier for you.

I'll chirp.. I was there with the LI team.. I didn't think we would beat the CONNY team and thought we had a better chance against Baltimore.. Turns out we didnt. Congrats to the Balt girls they proved their mettle by beating CONNY when it mattered, and a more rested LI team for the title.

CONNY command team definitely had the best player. Had Baltimore not played CONNY on Thursday CONNY would have won yesterday. Mary G and Mac are too good of coaches to let one player beat them twice. They had a plan and while she still played a great game it wasn't enough.

Nothing lacrosse related in this mid atlantic region will ever be decided based solely on merit. When you have evaluators who have their own kids/club players/high school players on the field, you will never get a a fair outcome. Everyone knows it, everyone complains about it, everyone comes on here and cries about it, and then a week later everyone stops whining and moves on to the next unfair tryout, where the cycle starts all over again. The same dad/coach/evaluator(s) will be at every event So if you are really that upset about it, get off the merry-go-round.

Daddy/Coach evaluators is what it is...it's not going to change unless you get a director at Corrigan Sports that gets independent evaluators for this process.


CSE first needs to stop underclass coaches from selecting and coaching their own kid at the event. Daddyball at the actual event is even worse than the club/high school coaches who might show some bias toward their own players.

In Baltimore coaches aren’t allowed to coach the age that their child try’s it for. What are you referring to?

My daughter's team (another region, not Baltimore) had a dad coach who handled the offense and tried to run things mainly through his daughter, and unfortunately for the team she's not good enough to do that at UA level. Stronger players were played out of position, subbed out more often, and micromanaged to run plays geared toward getting his kid points. It hurt the team, although the best players still ended up being the top performers because that's what good players do. She wasn't good enough to be on the team, let alone be a key offensive player. Hopefully someone in the region will step up and prevent a repeat next year.

darn someone is salty. Just figured out this board. The Baltimore Team had no dad coaches. All 3 coaches worked with 15 evaluators to find the best team. Which I guess they did a pretty good job of. Connys best player played in same club as their coaches but I guess that’s a sore spot too. The girls that had the best tryouts made the team. Try saying that 1 time.

Happens at Boys UA too. No matter how hard CS and UA try to spin it as independent evaluations it isnt. They do get many of top players but some are left out due to not knowing the coach...Frankly I think it is worst in non hotbed areas
where knowing coach has a bigger impact due to less impact players, Balt along with other hotbed areas can leave off a few top players and still field a great team. ................. Dont expect things to change,

Not sure why you’d think SPSG is going to be a top team. Basically a 500 team last year in the regular season and got a easy draw in the playoffs.

We hear that every year, only to see that they are the same ole bridesmaid, come the season play. I guess if you say it enough, that when it does happen, you all can say "I told you so".

GCS lost some of their top talent when the seniors graduated. It will be a rebuilding year with such a young squad, but I think they will be able to give some of those you mentioned a good game.

GCS is a young team with only a handful of JR's and SR's. Expect them to fall back a bit this year. If all the sophomores and freshmen they have develop they should be a very good team in 21 & 22.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls High School - 12/02/19 06:07 PM
So who will be the top teams? Obviously McDonogh will start out that way.

SPSG is a .500 team, but very good coaching. Not sure they have anyone coming in to add value. But very good coaching. Will NDP be that good? They lost some power players and the JV is not that good.

Bryn Mar added some very good young goalies, but its Bryn Mar. Soooo....nope.

GCS is still the little sister trying to be cool.

Spalding loses a good amount of seniors, but returns some heavy hitters. Probably the best farm system JV team out there. They come in as national top25 team. Overreach perhaps? Coaching is suspect at times. Any young talent entering that program?

Will any others step up? Severn School...umm, No. St. Marys...has players. Gerstell...on the move for players but not there yet.

Well...its a pretty top heavy league. Its always 4-5 team division. So being in that tier means you have something going for you all. Going to the semis every year is a fine feather for that hat. But what have they done against the top tier teams aligned with them?

They do not really compete with McDonogh, which is whom they are trying to emulate. So until that starts to happen, they will remain the little sister trying to be cool.

Be serious...GCS recruits heavily. That is no secret and they are not alone. They have the coaching ties and the name sake to throw around, but yet they just can not get over the hump. I am certain they will someday, but not there yet and not there this year.

Like the above posters said, 28-9 since moving to A in 2017, and have appeared in the semis all 3 years. Strong 2023 and 2022 classes will make them a favorite next year. They may or may not struggle this year, it will be interesting to see. Losing seniors every year doesn’t seem to be an issue, they still make the semis.

MRs days are over. Really only have one really strong player at this point. Not saying they lose to anyone other the Glenelg but they don’t have a shot at beating them either..

I think SPSG will be in the top 3 because they lost to McD twice in OT and return all but a few starters from last year.

Hereford for Baltimore County. I do not see MR in the same light as previous post. I think they will be pretty legit for the next few years

Hereford ? Lost their 2 studs and didn’t win vs a weaker team in states last year. As long as that coach stays they will under achieve ! Count on it.

Fair assessment. At least you had a basis for what you said. Any new talent coming in? Still seem weak on the JV team.

Not sure why you’d think SPSG is going to be a top team. Basically a 500 team last year in the regular season and got a easy draw in the playoffs.


NDP and GCS were an easy draw in the playoffs last year? They took McD to double OT in both games last year and led most of the game both times. They had 6 losses last year and 4 of them were in OT or double OT. One was a one goal game and other was a 2 goal game. SPSG lost far less talent than any other teams. They lost 3 starters to ACL's last year that are back plus a transfer junior that will add more offense. Their defense was one of the tops in the league and all 4 starters are back for the 3rd straight season. They have 2 solid goalies this year. Not sure why anyone would think they won't be strong this season.

Geez, calm down, take a breath. Don’t worry, no one thinks that now.

Bryn Mar added some very good young goalies, but its Bryn Mar. Soooo....nope.

GCS is still the little sister trying to be cool.

Spalding loses a good amount of seniors, but returns some heavy hitters. Probably the best farm system JV team out there. They come in as national top25 team. Overreach perhaps? Coaching is suspect at times. Any young talent entering that program?

Will any others step up? Severn School...umm, No. St. Marys...has players. Gerstell...on the move for players but not there yet.

GCS is still the little sister trying to be cool...?...All they have done since moving to the A in 2017 is go 28-9 and make the semi final all 3 years. I'm pretty sure they're cooler than you.



Well...its a pretty top heavy league. Its always 4-5 team division. So being in that tier means you have something going for you all. Going to the semis every year is a fine feather for that hat. But what have they done against the top tier teams aligned with them?

They do not really compete with McDonogh, which is whom they are trying to emulate. So until that starts to happen, they will remain the little sister trying to be cool.

Be serious...GCS recruits heavily. That is no secret and they are not alone. They have the coaching ties and the name sake to throw around, but yet they just can not get over the hump. I am certain they will someday, but not there yet and not there this year.


Since only 1 team has beaten McD in the past 10 years or so, I guess every other school in the conference is the little sister. Based on that criteria, no one else has been any good. Seriously, you don't find it at all somewhat impressive that GCS has made been a top 3 team in the league since they moved up to the B conference?

I do think it is impressive to make that jump and be one of the top teams in the A conference, but they are too young this year and I would imagine will drop back.

McD will still dominate. NDP will keep things interesting. GCS will surprise many. SPSG will be the team to beat.

How can McD dominate but SPSG is the team to beat? Until someone beats McD you always assume McD will win. SPSG has a good starting group but doesn't have much depth which hurt them last year when they had so many injuries.

Someone did beat McD and they still dominate. You can dominate a season and still get beat I think is what they wee trying to say. SP issues are last years issues. Their injured players are back and they didn’t lose a lot of key players. NDP will be stronger than People think. They have a big roster to work with.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls High School - 01/29/20 01:52 AM
NDP roster is huge every year. Doesn’t make sense to have 40 girls dressed in uniform. How’s the MCD pipeline after this year? Has Taylor reloaded the roster, how will they look with her recruits? She’s basically us using Robinson’s players.

One of the reasons CR left is because they were no longer supporting admission at the level they were in the past. After the 2020 class the amount of talent drops considerably. The 2021 class is weak. There are some good 2022 and 2023 players but they will no longer have the amazing depth they've had over the last decade plus.

While McD went undefeated last year they had a lot of close games. Granted they won them all but they are definitely coming back to the pack. SPSG took them to double OT both games. They had 2 close games with Spalding. So I wouldn't necessarily say the dominated the league last year. At least not in the manor they used to.

I don't know about that. Many kids(and parents) are drawn to McD because of her. Everyone in girls lacrosse knows who TC is and her name has a lot of pull. That said, I'm not sure how much work she puts into identifying talent at the younger ages that some of the other coaches do. That combined with the decline in admissions assistance makes it harder. We will see. I fully expect them to be very good this season but those players were brought in by CR. Next year should provide some clarity.

The other A conference schools upgraded their coaching and started recruiting with offers of money and playing time. That is the reason Mcdonogh is not as deep as they have been in the past. NDP is a larger school and much less expensive, hence the big roster.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls High School - 02/06/20 04:15 PM
I wonder how successful these coaches would be at a public HS without the recruiting and CR rep.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls High School - 02/06/20 10:47 PM
I can’t think of anymore than 5 standouts/bluechip in club for 2023. And none are at McD! McD has some athletes but they have more girls who are average but throw a lot of money and time into training & private coaching which makes them ok players. Watch out for St Paul’s and NDP, MV & BM in the next few years.

CR coached at a public high school in Howard County and was very successful.

But I get what you're saying.... If private school had to work with whoever came to their school (via their geographic boundries) as opposed to recruiting like college coaches do - MOST would not be anywhere near as successful.

The same goes for academics.

you put any of the private schools coaches at a public hs like glenelg, dulaney, hebron, hereford, townson, serverna park, southriver and to a certain extent catonsville they would be successful because these areas have good feeder programs

CAn anyone give any insight into what to expect playing at high school level vs what you’re used to in a competitive club level?
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls High School - 02/09/20 07:39 PM
Totally depends on which HS. My D's played in hotbed area so HS team was from all the clubs in MD. Hard to get on the field and we won State Championships frequently . Some of the HS teams that were in the region were horrible and got smoked but if kid had a pulse they could start.

It depends if you are talking IAAM or public. While there are some some good public school teams a majority of their schedule is against pretty weak competition. Playing in the IAAM is a grind. Much faster and much more physical that competitive 8th grade club lacrosse. Plenty of freshman have stepped up and been key players on teams though so if your daughter is up to the challenge there's no reason she can't be successful.

Spalding insider here. If they are going to make run at the playoffs this is the year. If the HC can keep the daddy ball in check they have a shot. Team has some talent. But there is nothing in the pipeline to keep them rolling. Jv this year will be B C level club players. Wish them all good luck.

Haha you must be joking. Spalding V had a great run last year and strong girls are still on the team. Spalding JV was the strongest in the league. Daddy ball is at McDonogh.

Spalding has no goalie this year and Gunning was a key part of their success the last two years. KO will always keep them in games though

Not sure why you would think Maryvale or Bryn Mawr would be contenders in the next few years. Most of the 2021-2023 talent is at SPSG, Glenelg Country, NDP and MCD

Not sure by what metric you are basing your strongest JV claim by. They lost to SPSG and McD that I know of. And SPSG is a small school. If the girls were any good on the JV team they'd have been on Varsity.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls High School - 02/13/20 12:19 AM
Maryvale has an exceptional freshman class this year. Some of those girls will probably be on the varsity roster this year. Give them a year or two and they could be really good team.

I guess you don't know the 2023 class very well. Maryvale got some great lacrosse players in their freshman class this year. I know they have 6 girls from the 2023 Skywalkers Blue team. They also got some great girls from some other programs. Time will tell but their freshman class is loaded.

Tell your girls that all they need to do to be successful is to just score points.
Just shoot the ball in, don't be afraid.
Don't wait for the right time and just go for it.
Be brave and follow through.

BMS will be better this year as well. Several good players in the 9th and 10th grade. They will likely struggle against the bigger schools given their class sizes and ratio of mathlete/athlete but they will be competitive.

I know the 2023 class just fine. And I know that SW is not one of the better teams at 2023. The M&D and Heros girls went to SPSG, GCS and McD as I said. I'm sure many 2023s will make Varsity at MV this year because the team isn't very good.

BM was competitive last year offensively but they couldn't defend and didn't have very good goalie play. Unless they get better on that end they will struggle
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls High School - 02/13/20 07:05 PM
M&D has girls going all over the place (#1 girl on team, if not the state, is at public) and the ones at McD are not going to make much of an impact. Unless TC can turn them into beasts - she loves athletic frames.
GCS should be really good, and Maryvale.
I hope NDP can put together a team of good ones, because they have a maybe one from 2023s that will make a difference.
BM has the best goalie in years. Plus some solid athletes.
SPSFG has some good ones.
The McD v NDP rivalry will fade away.

Lets get excited about the season everyone!

How do you not think SW's it not one of the better teams? They have beat or been close to any top team. Beat M&D in the NXT tournament didn't they! So I guess you still don't know anything about the 2023's.

I hope NDP can put together a team of good ones, because they have a maybe one from 2023s that will make a difference.
BM has the best goalie in years. Plus some solid athletes.
SPSFG has some good ones.
The McD v NDP rivalry will fade away.

Lets get excited about the season everyone!


BM has the 2023 goalie from SW's probably the best 2023 goalie in MD. I like MV's freshman class coming in. I don't think their is a stronger one out there. They got some top athletes from several clubs and the biggest thing they got was Quantity of good players. The freshman / sophomore team won indoor (yeah I know isn't the same as outdoor but shows there Talent pool). Give them a year or two.

M&D and NDP will always be powerhouses IMO. SP's and Arch does a great job of putting up good team's also.

Not sure why you would think Maryvale or Bryn Mawr would be contenders in the next few years. Most of the 2021-2023 talent is at SPSG, Glenelg Country, NDP and MCD


I guess you don't know the 2023 class very well. Maryvale got some great lacrosse players in their freshman class this year. I know they have 6 girls from the 2023 Skywalkers Blue team. They also got some great girls from some other programs. Time will tell but their freshman class is loaded.

SW's 2023 best 4 players got split up between BM, MV, SP and NDP. Goalie and the 3 mid fielders.

Are you really making a claim that SW 2023 has been as successful as M&D and Hero's? Because they beat them once? lol

SW, hero's, and M&D are all great teams. All 3 have some really good players.

In terms of 2023s, SPSG has 3 of M&D best, 1 of SW best and 3 Heros girls. The talent is spread out as opposed to the some of the past couple classes. SPSG, NDP and GCS have tons of 2021 talent. McDonogh doesn't have a lot once the 2020 class leaves. It should be an interesting few years. It's going to take MV a few years and another couple good classes to be competitive. They have very little in the 2020-2022 classes and you never know how girls will do in high school until they actually play. Totally different game than middle school club.

Looking at the upcoming season does Mcd win National Championship again? Or does ESM from Long Island win it? Any teams in Philly? Darien I think can be a dark horse. I don’t think any other good teams out there across country.

I would be shocked if McD goes undefeated this season. They lost so much talent from last year with not much in the 21 or 22 class to replace it.

Maryvale took them down in indoor championships by just 1 point. Of course don't know who was there and not.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls High School - 02/17/20 03:52 PM
Basing any opinions on indoor results is just silly. Maryvale was bad last year but at least had CB and SA. They lost their top two offensive and top defensive player with no one therr to replace that production. If you think freshman are going to step into the IAAM and do it good luck with that.

Nobody said that. They have a very good freshman class but going to take a year or two too get competitive again. Also need another strong class next year.

is There any way to find out the IAAM rosters? Some schools have them posted- and some don’t. Of many schools do the ancillary websites like MaxPreps.

Lot of schools have them on their websites. Some are on MaxPreps. Question is why do you care?

I just want to know if we are going to see the girls we’ve played with in club over the years.

My point was I'm pretty sure if you want to know if girls your daughter plays club with made Varsity your daughter would know. All the baltimore girls know each other. McD, Spalding, RPCS, Maryvale, JC, Severn i think all usually have their rosters on their websites. SPSG's roster is usually on MaxPreps.

There is more to the investment in these IAAM schools besides lacrosse. Getting a quality education is more important to most parents I would believe. I don't know of many people who make a stellar living just from lacrosse.

And I would bet money that most JV teams in the IAAM "A" Division could beat most Varsity public school teams. Many of these schools have 3 teams in their program and still have to make substantial cuts during tryout time. They build their programs from middle school years onward. Most girls don't even make Varsity until Junior year because there are top girls in the Junior and Senior classes ahead of them. There isn't room for them until their Junior year. The competition in the IAAM is stellar for sure.

You would lose that bet -the top publics play the IAAM varsity teams regularly and win about 50% of the time. Don't be mad that you have wasted your money on a prep school when you could have just paid for college and let the kid grow up normally.

My guess is that your little Suzzie made the varsity team, and now you want to base that achievement against her fellow piers. Perhaps you should just ask them and stop trolling to puff your chest out. Different teams have different needs. Judge that what she does on the field (if she gets on the field) and not by whispering about others. But hey, congrats to her.

What a ridiculous statement. Just because Glenelg HS and Marriotts Ridge have won some games against IAAM teams in recent years does not come close to being 50%. If 99% of public schools played an IAAM A team they would lose by 10 goals. Not to mention that when the publics play the privates the public school girls are way more into the game than the private school girls. Severna Park goes 25-1 every year but get smoked in scrimmages against IAAM teams. Century, one of the top publics, lost to Maryvale last year who is a bottom IAAM team. There is no comparison for the most part. Name me a public school that has beaten a top private in the last 5 years other than Glenelg and MR.

I was referring to MR and Glenelg but for years SP beat Spalding Severn and St Mary's in the holiday torurneys but stopped playing them so it is really tough to make assumptions. BTW -scrimmages are for underclassmen so that theory is BS. I think SP is ranked 9th in country this year above most IAAM teams -oops.

Severna Park has no business being ranked ahead of most IAAM teams. They never play any top IAAM teams in regular season. They don't again this year. So you admit that you were talking about MR and Glenelg yet make the comment that public schools can win 50% of their games against IAAM teams and tell people they are wasting their money by sending their kids to private schools. First off, most of us don't just send out children to private school for athletics but whatever. Your point is absurd in terms of lacrosse regardless. Even if you want to include SP in the conversation, though they haven't beaten a top level IAAM team in years and years, you have named 3 of the 100s of public high schools that play lacrosse in Maryland. Not quite 50%.

It’s good that you don’t send your kid to private school only for lacrosse. With a lot of rosters of 30+ girls most don’t get to see the field anyway.

Spalding took a hit this year with graduation on the defensive side of the field. They’re going to have to score a lot of goals to win games.

On Thursday, March 12, 2020, under the guidance of the IAAM Board of Governors, the IAAM secured approval from IAAM Heads of School to amend our spring season in an effort to serve the best interest of our student-athletes as it relates to COVID-19.

Effective immediately, the IAAM will place a moratorium on spring season league competition.
The moratorium on league competition will last through Friday, April 10, 2020
The Board of Governors will reevaluate the situation on Monday, April 13, 2020
League competition would resume on Monday, April 20, 2020, providing five (5) days of practice, prior to resuming any spring season competitions.
Regarding regular season standings, post-season play and a possible extension of our spring season, the IAAM Board of Governors, will evaluate and communicate next steps on the afternoon of Monday, April 13, 2020.

Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls High School - 04/01/20 10:36 AM
I don’t think anyone is upset the NCAA did the right thing at all for college players. They just didn’t complete the right thing. They should have added the 20-21-22-23 classes since they will be directly effected by this extra year for all current players. (I know the argument is the NCAA has nothing to do with HS-but they do have in future recruiting classes-these grad years will be 5 classes into a 4 year program, then it clears itself when 19/20 graduate). The showed this by recruiting rules put in place a few years ago. So don’t say they have nothing to do with HS. Let’s not kid ourselves. The schools just offered 5 year potential scholarships with no red shirt or injury red shirt being used. I completely agree that the kids/schools had no control of it, but we now live in do for one, have to do for all world.

So they absolutely did right by current college player in this mess, but the HS players are affected as well. Also,I realize that a HS has a long way to go to be even looked a by a college but those that do for next few
Recruiting years are impacted. They should be given 5 year paid scholarships as well. That is fair,just like doing the extra year for current college players.

They also should have put in it that you can’t transfer schools to be eligible for extra year as a senior. This has even more effect on incoming players. This is already the Wild West in transfer portal or kids with drawing from Ivys two days after announcement.

When decisions are made people need to look at all aspects. This didn’t happen.

What we always knew-the Athlete Student has arrived, no more Student Athlete. Actions don’t lie.

Is it the right thing, though? I don’t think so. I think it is terrible that it happened, but life sometimes stinks. Life lessons.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls High School - 04/01/20 02:52 PM
The right thing for who ? It was a knee donk reaction by the NCAA to make itself look good....like the hero. But in actuality, it was just another in a looooong line of examples of the NCAA making terrible decisions that usually have nothing to do with the student athletes best interests. How was this the right thing for the high school class of 2020 ? Everybody is losing something in this. This decision makes the 2020 class bear the burden of it for their entire college career. Everyone else gets to wipe the slate clean next year. Not fair or right .
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls High School - 04/01/20 04:42 PM
Just because you like it makes it the "right thing" to do.

The 22's are screwed. Like the poster above said sometimes life is hard. The rules keep changing on the 20's, 21's and 22's. They don't get to play an extra year of high school. The 20's don't get senior night or prom or anything else. But hey the college kids get an extra year because THAT is the "Right thing to do". Don't worry about the younger kids, these kids are more important.
Give me a break.

Not true. 2020 HS students have it bad because they lost this season and will be playing with 5th year seniors for their entire college career. But their college selection was unaffected.
2022 and 2023 HS students may have it worse because they may find themselves unrecruited, having been squeezed out by current college players who are taking normally empty roster spots to play for their 5th year.

Anyone have a feel for how many will take advantage of this 5th year? I would think most seniors already have post-college jobs, grad school, etc lined up. Even w covid-19. And this 5th year would still incur expenses for the player & as stated, most won’t be making a career out of lacrosse. As the parent of a 2022, I’m hoping there are still viable D1 opportunities. If not, it will completely change what college many attend.

There will be plenty of opportunities. Go where the money is, academic and athletic combination is the way to go if the grades are there. Dont get caught in the names of the schools. A good package illustrates how much you are valued. In turn how much you will play. Looking at a lot of 2019s I'm sure many would have reconsider where they went.

What if the school doesn’t feel like taking you back for the fifth year? I understand to get to year five you really are invested(vs those that drop out after freshman year) in playing, but what if you had a bad season start?

Anyone have any insight as to what states will actually let any summer tournaments take place? Hard to see Md, Pa and NJ allowing any to happen

I honestly dont see there being any summer tourneys, except maybe UA underclass games since its the best of the best competing and would be a big help to the coaches and these 2021-24 girls. Sounds like Corrigan sports is really trying to make this happen as they moved the tourney back to August. Whether parents will be allowed to watch is an unknown. Could see it played with no fans/parents, and just select amount of coaches at each game. If you think your daughter is a top player than she should be at this tryout...2021/22 team and 2023/24. Long Island and Baltimore among other regions will get close to 200 girls trying out for this team. Although 75% of the team is already chosen lol

Are coaches even looking at 2021's? Seems they would be focusing only on 2022's if tourneys even happen since so many camps are getting cancelled.

Except that UA is now during Lake Placid. Many coaches will be at Placid Terrible planning in my opinion

Hi - do you mean the the coaches already have a lineup of girls that they want for the teams? I get that..
But what do you think has more weight - current high school or club teams? No.1 daughter doesn't go to a Baltimore private - but we are on a good club team. Do you think the girls from NDP and St Pauls will get more of a look than our kid? The coaches are from there.

if coaches are even allowed to travel by there colleges they will go where the most talent is and that's the UA games

Any 2021 on the Command team last year will be back on the team this year. Most of the 2022's that were on the Highlight team last year will probably make the Command team this year if they try out

Of course CSE is really trying to make UA happen. They make huge money from the tryouts alone - significantly more, I'm guessing, than they pay to run the event. Tournaments being rescheduled to August is creating schedule conflicts. Summer Genesis and Champions Cup rescheduled for the same weekend, for example. It's a mess that to some degree is not the fault of clubs and tournament operators, but ultimately I think it's the parents who will bear the brunt of the financial loss.

Lake Placid was never a recruiting tournament anyway as it was during a dead period. Even if they do want to send a coach to both they can certainly do so. UA was originally scheduled the same weekend as G8 so it really doesn't make a difference.

I've heard just the opposite as there has apparently been alot of pushback by club coaches and parents that they're tired of seeing the same girls on the team. Some are worthy of it and we all know some aren't. Whether it's more competitive this year remains to be seen.

hard to argue with last years selections for both the highlight and command since they both were champs

There were some real ‘22 monsters on command last year that will move up to highlight. Hopefully we’d get more of chance this year. Also we may be looking to switch clubs and we need aspects of this tryout in case summer tryouts don’t really happen.
Does anyone think teams will hold tryouts for fall? I also realize that if you’re a certain ability or class coaches will take a private look at you.

Has anyone seen on USCL (red flag right there) the "Peoples Champion"?
Its all over their social media and it a 16 person bracket full of players with small bios that you vote on for popularity reasons. I just cant believe that this is a reality right now. As if these girls of a tender social age have enough to worry about.
I will add that most of these brackets are populated with players from outside the east coast - lots of Ohio Florida and out west.
I'm kind of sorry that Epoch is sponsoring this as well. I thought they were better than that and being the team sponsor of UNC they didn't have to stoop to this level.

Not to be a downer, but the more I read about it, the less I believe there will be any lacrosse until the spring of 2021. So depressing.

Unfortunately things are going to be delayed for at least another year with a potential attempt to normalcy in the winter. I hope I am wrong but from speaking to people who know ALOT more than me - fall sports like football and soccer are going to be cancelled. Some schools will open in the fall while others don't which will make school sports highly unlikely. The one caveat is this wont be everywhere. As we all know testing isn't there yet so large gatherings aren't going to occur and unlike professional sports where TV contracts and $$S will prevail there isn't going to be a central locale like Orlando or Arizona for high school sports. Without school there wont even be after school sports and if there is school - large gatherings like a football game with hundreds in the stands wont occur. Schools will start to open up in the winter but those in the know (again not me - just happen to talk to people who are) say without a cure there will be a relapse and we will be back where we are now. While we will be MUCH more prepared with masks and hopefully testing and a better response, the first thing to go will again be large gatherings. So while school will operate more smoothly with remote learning OR in some instances even staying open with factors in place such as temperature checks, face masks etc . . there will again be no LARGE gatherings after school Since I am on a Lacrosse blog - this means no spring lax without a cure. This also means no proms, school plays, etc . . I can only hope this relapse and continued "stay at home" procedure doesn't comeback next February/March but this seems inevitable. People will think all is good as things in the fall/early winter start to gain some normalcy but then things will revert. I will add that BOY, DO I HOPE THOSE SMARTER THAN ME ARE DEAD WRONG!!!

Its unfortunate but was just talking to a friend whose daughter will be enrolling in a coed New England prep school this fall and it was reported back - after a zoom call the administration just had with new parents - that it is highly unlikely Fall sports (especially those of the contact variety) are a go. That is the conversation being bantered about among ALL of the Northeast private schools. It stinks but just saying.

At this pint I just want to know how much $$$ we are getting g back from these tournaments. I’m no spring chicken and we lost $$$ last year to a rained-out ourney. Found out the hard way that with weather you get no money back!
Holding out hope and endlessly watching governors open up/close counties is getting exhausting.
It’s a good thing my daughter is not a junior. For that very reason clubs should give money back minus admin fees. It’s a good thing our club loves to run up the numbers in our teams! More families more money!
I really dont know how clubs can justify keeping any dues from this year.

I agree. What would be the point of attending if no coaches will be there? I'm sure the competition would be good for the girls, but ultimately it comes down to performing in front of prospective colleges. If they don't lift the dead period on August then the 22s will have had no opportunity to get looks since last fall. That age group is really taking it on the chin through this whole thing.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls High School - 05/28/20 04:15 PM
What does the dead period cover? No on campus recruiting visits, I know. Phone calls and texts still are allowed.

Can the coaches come to tournaments? Can they work at off campus camps/clinics? For example Lacrosse Masters, etc? 'Virtual" clinics?

Coaches can do nothing but look at film highlights during a dead period.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls High School - 05/29/20 03:44 PM
From the NCAA website:

What is a dead period?
During a dead period a college coach may not have face-to-face contact with college-bound student-athletes or their parents, and may not watch student-athletes compete or visit their high schools. Coaches may write and telephone student-athletes or their parents during a dead period.

Class of 22 heavy? Is that the surprise? Always DC tryout in Howard county coming up.

Command 4 out of 23 where 2024. Highlight 10 out of 23 were class of 2022. I would say the Highlight ratio argues for tryout fairness, not going for more well known/ older girls.

If you had a bad tryout but you play for the high school or club involved with the coaching staff, you got the spot over the players who were more deserving. End of discussion. It’s the way it is. Don’t try out if it bothers you.

Are you referring to the Heros girls? Other than them not sure which coach would be biased.

It seems this is the first year in a long time the talent is spread out between private and public schools. I guess you are bitter because your 22 did not make the cut?

I don’t see the purpose of having this same conversation every year. 1. There are kids selected that are deserving.
2. There are those that aren’t deserving but get in because of connections.
3. There are those who merit a spot on the team but get passed over due to points #1 and #2.

We all know it going into the tryouts, so don’t bellyache if your daughter doesn’t make the team.

The DC tryouts may be in HoCo this year but the Coaches are from DC/VA. They will not allow for girls that they view as not from the DC area to make the team. Last year some of the most talented players at the tryouts didn’t make the call back game because they were viewed from out of region.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but the DC tryouts are open to girls from MD too. There will be a steady steam of cars filled with talented girls that didn't make the Baltimore team.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls High School - 07/18/20 03:08 PM
You are somewhat correct there will be a line of cars filled with girls that didn’t make Baltimore. Point is they won’t make Washington either although a lot of them should. Just check when the roster comes out and we will see who’s correct.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls High School - 07/18/20 09:04 PM
Maybe that’s why Washington was awful last year. LI and BAL are the only regions that can play politics and still be successful. Just that much talent in those hotbeds. Everyone else should take the best players at their tryouts so we don’t have to watch blowouts again.

I beg to differ. Better competitions, not blowouts. Look for the DC team to be a top contender this year because of the tryout location change.

What was so obvious? For once in seems like a good mixture of girls from different schools, not your typical NDP/McD bias like last year.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls High School - 07/21/20 01:54 PM
That’s because the standouts in the lower classes mainly 23, don’t go to MCD and NDP. It’s too bad there wasn’t a season this spring.

Yep... but when you take girls that go to those schools that are not deserving, that is a different story. There where plenty of public school girls that should have made the team, but were passed over based on the NDP/MCD favoritism. If you cannot notice that, then your daughter must go to one of those schools.

There wasn't a single NDP player on the Highlight team last year. There were several McD. There are 3 McD girls on the team this year and they're all deserving. There are no NDP players on the team again this year. The questions should be around the numerous Heros 2022 girls on the team that seemed to have been helped by the Hero's director coaching the team.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls High School - 07/21/20 06:52 PM
when you win the tournament, how can you say the girls are not deserving? i do understand that girls are passed up. like any tryout, girls get overlooked. to say a player is not deserving sounds like you are a bitter parent.

I believe there are only 2 or 3 Hero's 2022 girls out of 23 players. I really wouldn't call that numerous, you should get your facts straight before posting such nonsense.

There are 4 hero’s girls on the Highlight team. These are the only 4 hero’s girls that made the call back team. The goalie is legit, the other 3 were very questionable.

It is nonsense when they don't deserve to be on the team. There were several 2021 girls from M&D and SW that didn't make callbacks. These girls are committed to Maryland, Penn State, Michigan, JMU, and other good programs and didn't even make callbacks? There is a fantastic 2022 on SW and another on TLC that didn't make callbacks. Funny how 3 Heros 2022 girls made the final roster. Sure it had nothing to do with the fact that their director is one of the coaches.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls High School - 07/22/20 05:15 AM
It’s the same deal every year. Everyone knows it and the reason this tournament is losing credibility. Especially for this age group for the Baltimore team. The 2022 Hero’s and M&D coaches have always controlled the roster. I was shocked when I saw the list. Definitely not the top girls.

The same M&D girls have made it over the last 3 years and are good players. 5 other very good M&D 2021 girls didn't even make callbacks so not sure how much pull the M&D coach has.

So you are essential saying the rosters should be pre determined based on where they go to school and their respective club team, not on the actual tryouts. Based on your logic, why even have tryouts? Maybe those girls that made the team had great tryouts, while the other girls could have been off that day. This seems like the first year in a long time that the tryouts actually mattered.

Tryouts matter but when it becomes obvious that there a players being selected over players who had better tryouts then it becomes an issue. Maybe the 3 coaches should not even be at the tryouts to avoid these problems in the future. That and there should never be a parent evaluating an age group where they have child trying out.

it also shouldn't be coaches of clubs that will certainly pick or have already predetermined the players and coach/parents that will certainly pick their own child players. Its a shame that this goes on in the lax community. Who you know shouldn't supersede talent. These are not legit tryouts. When will it end?

Tryout film does not lie. Watch the film when it becomes available and then come back on here and preach your "they are worthy!". UA tryout process is a joke, not based on merit. goes for all regions, not just Baltimore.

I think everyone can agree that it is not a legitimate tryout...that is known and obvious. It will not change until the Coaches are someone other then a local Private School coach and/or Local Club Coach/Director. That will never happen, so this will continue...at some point, if people stop trying out and giving Corrigan the $ then just MAYBE things will change!

Luckily I believe the college coaches have definitely figured that out now too. Sadly though it delegitimizes the entire tournament. Politics have always been a factor in kid sports (especially when scholarship money is involved) but the 2022 age group with the M&D and Hero’s parent coaches have taken it to another level. Everyone knows it too and it hasn’t helped M&D win any games lately either. They continue to lose games. Even losing to Steps last week.

I believe there are only 2 or 3 Hero's 2022 girls out of 23 players. I really wouldn't call that numerous, you should get your facts straight before posting such nonsense.

It is nonsense when they don't deserve to be on the team. There were several 2021 girls from M&D and SW that didn't make callbacks. These girls are committed to Maryland, Penn State, Michigan, JMU, and other good programs and didn't even make callbacks? There is a fantastic 2022 on SW and another on TLC that didn't make callbacks. Funny how 3 Heros 2022 girls made the final roster. Sure it had nothing to do with the fact that their director is one of the coaches.

So you are essential saying the rosters should be pre determined based on where they go to school and their respective club team, not on the actual tryouts. Based on your logic, why even have tryouts? Maybe those girls that made the team had great tryouts, while the other girls could have been off that day. This seems like the first year in a long time that the tryouts actually mattered.

Tryout film does not lie. Watch the film when it becomes available and then come back on here and preach your "they are worthy!". UA tryout process is a joke, not based on merit. goes for all regions, not just Baltimore.

Let me get this straight, you watched film of every single girl that tried out? What a dork!!

Doesn’t matter what film shows. Better talent always gets overlooked when connections are involved. Just means your player needs to work harder to force them to take her so that if they don’t the evaluators/coaches/food truck guy will look like fools for cutting her. If your player has talent, it will be recognized. She won’t need the UA Highlight game. So cheers to the ones who made it, no matter how they made it. When some ride the bench during the games, the ones who were cut can have their laugh to make themselves feel better.

Im not the poster, but I did watch a girls mother who was evaluating turn her back to the field she was in charge of to watch her daughter on another field. Oh,and that girl made the team.

I don't get it.. I don't believe any other sport has asked for the contact date to be pushed back.. Men's lacrosse hasn't?

and why 11 months?... and the way it's setting up, they will get the initial contact for the 2022 class on 7/1/21 and the initial contact with the 2023 class 9/1/21 do they plan to wrap up recruiting the 2022 in 2 months? or have they decided with the extra year granted to current players they don't need all that many 2022's

I hope/pray the NCAA denies the request
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls High School - 07/24/20 03:17 PM
Sounds like its a done deal. But I agree with you. 11 months is way too long. Why not allow contact but no commitment?

Everyone needs to reach out to the NCAA. This is a selfish decision made by the IWLCA.

Whether it's Baltimore or Long Island there will always be some great girls that don't make the team. Last year I was at the LI tryout and they had 150 girls there. Most girls that tryout think they have a chance to make the team, (you don't apply to Harvard with a 82 avg and 980 SAT), so my point is it's 100+ of who is who from 2022 and 23(this year 23/24). They seem to only take 5-7 girls from the younger grade, so it's next to impossible to make it as a younger kid. So now that's 15 or so spots to be picked from a great group of talent. Do they pick more by a kids resume or by the performance in the tryout?? My guess both. If you are a girl who plays varsity and contributes at a conf 1 school or Suffolk power then that helps, but you still need to play well at the tryout. If you go out as a no name and tear it up on the field all night during the scrimmages, you will make the team. My point is there will always be a touch of politics involved but the UA system tries to avoid that and believe me these coaches want to represent their region and WIN.
My belief is if you are looking for a great night of competition then go down to the tryout and roll the dice. What's the worst that can happen?? Kids gets cut,big deal. Maybe she shines and makes the team; it's the best tourney in the game as far as top tier talent Good luck
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls High School - 07/24/20 05:21 PM
2023 will get pushed back as well. It’s inevitable. College coaches will not want to recruit 2 classes on top of each other. Either way, this is so far off in the future. With so much uncertainty about this upcoming fall and You might as well add next spring, there’s no sense in getting your panties in a bunch about it now. Everything will change 15 times between now and then. At this point, don’t look past tomorrow.

According to UA the senior games are canceled because of Covid-19. Whatever the real reason if not Covid-19, it's interesting that the UAAA website makes no mention of the senior game cancellations. I guess CSE thinks it's better to just ignore the situation and hope no one notices?

It isn’t just UA getting out of deals or not re signing. STX couldn’t resign the US lacrosse sponsorship either.

UA is a solid company getting out of bad, expensive deals that make no sense or money to long term growth of the brand.i e UCLA, lacrosse sticks , all useless football and sport camps etc. refocusing money on e-commerce and digital where everyone now shops. These were great sponsorship for the camps and kids but super expensive and lost the Return on investment.

On UA senior game they don’t care enough to announce it, but either does IL who picks the teams. There must be other important news.

Let’s just hope soon lax gets back to normal for these girls that work hard.

CSE is not helping their reputation. My daughter played UAAA Underclass 3 years. First two at Towson were good events. Last year's venue was not good. President's Cup in South Florida was terrible. Hotels more expensive and less convenient than Disney and traffic/parking was a nightmare. Would rather pay admission to Disney's much nicer facility able to handle crowds. They look greedy holding tryouts like everything is normal. I don't have a problem with teams playing locally for people who feel comfortable with that, but a tournament bringing in people from all over the country is not the right thing to do at this time.

Any player that attends 150 cannot attend the LI tryout the next day. stinks. But UAAA too important to pass up the chance of makikg that

As long as you are only attending just for the swag with no expectation of your daughter actually being recruited at the event it's $600 well spent I guess. Though the value of the swag is far less then $600 I'd assume

Next the event will be cancelled. No way a public company can risk bad press of someone contracting virus at an event like this. Right or wrong that's the reality.

Nah my daughter is a 2021 and committed a while ago. Just about everyone "makes it" these days. Ever since the recruiting calendar changed and the event was moved from the winter to the summer it has been a waste of money unless your daughter is looking to play D2 or D3. The top kids don't attend anymore for a reason. Sure you can be seen by coaches, but the price is absurd for the minimum exposure your daughter is getting. While this year is different because of COVID, for that money you could send her to 2 or 3 camps at a school she's interested in this fall where the coaches are guaranteed to see her.

One would question if you even have a daughter that plays lacrosse when you make a statement as ridiculous as saying the tournament being a "waste of money unless your daughter is looking to play D2 or D3". Go look at where the 21's on the rosters are committed to and I am sure the 22's are hoping to achieve the same.

I think this was a smart solution on Corrigan's part and the girls still get to play with another goal of making the Championship weekend. Try being positive, it goes a long way right now.

Not sure why you would think that when 3 M&D players that had been on DC team last 2 years got cut. And 5 top M&D 2021 players didn't even make callbacks in Baltimore.

M&D hasn’t had the top players in this age group ( 2021) for more than 2 years. It is not surprising that they aren’t over represented.

What an idiotic statement. You really believe that some of the top 2021 players in Baltimore aren't on M&D? There are 4 2021 M&D players and 5 2021 Skywalker players on the UA team. They are clearly the top 2 Baltimore 2021 teams and that's the reason they make up 9 of the 13 2021 players on the team. 7 girls have made UA the last 3 years. 3 are from M&D, 3 from Skywalkers and one from NEMS. Point was that the 5 M&D girls that didn't even make callbacks are committed to MD, PSU, Loyola, James Madison and Jacksonville. Not at least having them at callbacks seems to show that there wasn't any M&D bias going on at tryouts which was the accusation.

Skywalkers, M & D, YJ, LI Top Guns, Mass Elite, and Heros reign supreme at this age group (2021), but Capital Blue is top dog. Celebrate the great lacrosse for all organizations.

Good luck to the rest of the recruiting process.

All those Capital Blue players that got out on the DC UA team went 0-2 against Baltimore and 1-2 against the South. Maybe the M&D and Skywalkers girls are better after all since Baltimore went 5-0 and won regional easily.

DC tryouts were a sham, and it cost them the best team(s) they could have fielded. While it played out some at Highlight, this was especially true at the Command level, where it was run by 2nd tier-level team coaches who picked their own players and got an 0-5 and non-competive result to show for it. Not saying the DC team would have won with a better process, just saying it would have been a lot more competitive at both levels.

But I was told here that Capital Blue had the best 2021 players in the country now. Considering 7 of them were on the team rhey should have had no problem winning more than one game right?

7 players on the best 2021 team is different than a team comprised of the top 2-3 players from the top few clubs. It really comes down to the tryout process and coaching, which DC did not have. Their coaches were out of their league compared to other regions.

Well maybe instead of keeping 7 kids from his own club he should have kept the 3 M&D girls he cut that had been on the team the last two years. Replacing them with an uncommitted 2021 and more capital girls and 22s doesn’t make much sense. Those girls aren’t committed to Stanford, Navy and Va Tech for no reason. They don’t play for Capital or go to Bi though so....

Agreed 100 💯! That is the political aspect of tryouts. You do realize that there is a reason the M&D girls tried out for DC don’t you? That is something to take into consideration.

The M&D girls that have played for DC go to Visitation, Good Counsel, Quince Orchard and Spalding. None are from Baltimore which is why they tried out for DC. Not sure what you are insinuating.

Does anyone know what is happening with the 9/1 contact date for 2022s? Did the NCAA vote on the IWLCA's proposal to move to 7/1, or is the change still a possibility?
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls High School - 08/13/20 02:04 PM
Some rumors that it isn't changing, contact date to remain 9/1/2020 for class of 2022. still rumors right now so we will see.

I think the fact that the men's coaches voted to keep the date has help the girls cause

The recruiting dead period was just extended through Sept 30th but I don't think they've voted on women's lax contact date for 2022s yet.

so much for Coaches taking their time..

8 Sw players from 23 blue.
6 from M&D black.
I guess M&D coach didn’t do a good enough job.


At DC there were 7-8 Va metro girls and not many M&D girls.

Unfortunately lots of good players don’t make the final 23.

Btw there were a couple evaluators at both DC and Baltimore and they might actually look for the best players at the tryout but I’m sure nobody wants to believe that.

As a club coach who has witnessed this yearly for the past 7 years I am shocked how quickly it has gone this year. And shocking since the IWLCA was pushing for a delay until next summer. I wonder what changed? It's terrible for girls from smaller or newer clubs because it's been very obvious that college coaches are just recruiting girls based on club recommendations and not on actual player performance. Don't get me wrong, there have been some very deserving commitments but there has also been more than usual head scratchers. And many very talented girls left out of the commitment pool so far. This has definitely been brand new territory for even those of us who have some experience!

While I agree that it has been fast and furious for some schools who were prepared to recruit who they had on there lists, I have a hard time believing any college coach would make an offer to player on a club recommendation. Seriously?
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls High School - 09/28/20 09:45 PM
Now I’m sitting here wondering how it will go for my 23. Our team has t had the best past 12 months and because I like to film I at least have some film of my girl. But what about the others who don’t have film, didn’t have a high school year, Had no camps, no campus visits, got their tournaments screwed up and played weird teams and weird tiers at tournaments- I feel there is nothing to show for these girls.
I wil say that there is a 22 who just got recruited by a/ the top school who did not play for a big 3 or a big 5 but had an awesome Twitter and Insta. So maybe that is the direction? My girl won’t really put her self out there like that, posting workouts and inspiration quotes. But duly noted...

I would estimate that we’re only about 1/3 the way through d1 recruiting. The 22 class is going to be a lot smaller due to 5th years. How much smaller is the issue. The job market continues to be garbage and hiding in a masters is a good gap filler

It is probably not difficult to identify the top 100 players. A simple screen of high school ,Ua, development camp rosters and etc should capture a decent list. The real work is to identify players 100-500.

Workhorse players, often not identified in the top 75 players, are the keys to a successful college program.

Agree. And unfortunately the way the recruiting period has gone for the 2022 class so far, many of these girls have been overlooked. It will be interesting to see how this changes things once they are playing in college. There may be some very disappointed college coaches out there.

Agree. And unfortunately the way the recruiting period has gone for the 2022 class so far, many of these girls have been overlooked. It will be interesting to see how this changes things once they are playing in college. There may be some very disappointed college coaches out there.
More than some will be.

So, are you saying the coaches are going to be disappointed in who they recruited? Or that they may have missed some good players? If you are stating that they will be disappointed in their selection, that is an obnoxious comment. The coaches didn't blindly pick their recruits...clearly they know them as a player...so I'm very confused by your statement.

At the end of the day coaches are taking commitments from kids they only probably watched last fall. Summer of 19 coaches we’re watching 21s. Some coaches will be happy some will be disappointed with whom there being sold a bill of goods for from coaches/club directors. Watched all the 22s play for years and some of the commitments are a stretch for sure. Also go lay on a beach get a really good tan and seems like you could go to any school you want...

So now you are stating that you have watched EVERY 22 player that have committed....THAT is a stretch for sure

What he/she is insinuating is that there were 22s recruited solely because they're minorities not for their talent which is why they suggested sunbathing to get a "really good tan". Comment is obnoxious, inappropriate and keyboard warrior sounds bitter. Shame on you

Inappropriate yes, completely untrue no. In today’s time teams are trying to diversify so yeah there may be some “stretches” skill wise.

It’s not racist to say someone has a advantage because of the color of their skin. Obviously white people I’ve had advantage for about 400 years. It’s racist to to say someone is inherently better/worse because of the skin color they were born with. But you can wallow in your guilt if you like.

Thoughts on the McDonogh team bringing in 3 Maryland commits from other high schools to play a team showcase and dominate. Not a good look for those BadPerson bags. Have to wonder if TC approved this ? I hear it’s typical for the guy organizing to take care of his kid.

Classy move. Bring in ringers so you win 15-1 instead of 10-2. Meanwhile, your underclassmen players and parents are left bitter and resenting the program. The underclassmen and uncommitted girls missed out on a chance to get some much needed film as well. What possibly could have been the reasoning behind bringing in players when you consistently tout your program as the best in the country?

There can't be a "justified" explanation on why this was done! School is supposed to be the "best" but you NEED to bring in players that DONT play for the school? For what reason? There were enough players with out the added players? Pathetic is not even the word. Why must coaches stoop to these levels?????? School should be embarrassed.

This is a typical TE/M&D/McD move. they not only have to win but they MUST dominate, and please do not give a bs story about how you needed these 3 MD commits in order to field a team. you could have taken M&D 23 or McD JV players and given them a chance a some needed film.

Exactly. There was no championship awarded. So why take an opportunity away from McD kids to "showcase" themselves and give it to 3 girls committed to Maryland already? TE was afraid they would lose without them is the answer. But who cares? It was just 3 meaningless games so let the kids play.

If you are playing as a school, then it should be the players that go to that said school. Why is there a NEED to bring in players that do not go to said school? Why are players who go to said school, NOT being given the chance to play...instead they got to sit on the sidelines and watch players that DO NOT go to their school play. How is this NOT an issue?

The truth is we were told "The goal is to get everyone equal time as much as possible."
But in reality it should have read, " The goal is to get my daughter as much playing time with her future Maryland teammates" And that is what happened.

Parents at McD and M&D should've shut this guy down long ago. No one will stand up to these scheming lax dads. Theyre Always pulling the strings to benefit their daughters. His daughter is a fantastic player on her own. Why all the string pulling ? Which leads to the issue of having parents coaching at club and HS levels. The stakes are too high to ever trust parents to do the right thing for everyone - not just their own child. And in almost every case the scheming parent proves this statement to be true.

This was not an IAAM or school event. Its the reason all the teams played under other names like "Orange Crush" "Gators" etc. If you know IAAM rules, playing as your school and for the schools coach is a no no out of season. The only people that should be upset about this are maybe some McD JV parents. Maybe TC said they werent allowed to play?

No, schools cannot play as their HS team. However, the email invite specifically said this is a high school tournament and not meant for club teams. Bringing in girls from other schools takes away from the whole point of the event which is to showcase HS teams and their players. I find it hard to believe McD didn't have enough players to field an outdoor team and if so they shouldn't have entered. Will they do the same next summer in the championship tournament NHSLS? I certainly hope not.

It does not make a difference if it is an IAAM event, it makes McD look bad and McD does not like looking bad. He is using the school to push his own personal agenda. A lot more people than just JV parents are upset.

He has done it for years and will continue to do so. And it did benefit his daughter in the end. Although she is touted as the #1 2022 recruit I definitely beg to differ but she was recruited immediately and she was in the recruiting issue this month so in the end it worked. It’s just sad that no one on his team or in the lacrosse community respects him and his daughter wasn’t able to earn it on her own. He took that away from her. She knows her dad is a big reason she has accomplished what she has. That is something that will stay with her forever. Shameful really.

Interesting. We played Orange Crush recently & they weren't happy we were beating them initially. It was rumored girls were "older" on team with generic jerseys and no names (2022s know each other well enough). Wonder if there is truth to that statement? Sad everyone knows about the daughter. He has his hands in everything. Pitiful really he must be very insecure with his place in the world.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls High School - 11/08/20 12:34 AM
#1 recruit in 2022 class? That is funny. Very Good player but almost zero left hand and of course you score goals when daddy runs the offense through you for years and years.

Let’s look back at this in a couple years to see if CR at umd plays her that way. If so, cool and well deserved. I hope she would play the best players. If not, then us trolls will feel vindicated sitting on our couch munching Doritos and a Busch light (which matters zero in real life).

Btw if you live in the real world, you can get almost any accolade for your business if you want. Jimmy’s club shack is the top X, Y, or Z in the nation. Think it is any different in kids sports?

Beware chum in the water. What are the major women's sports? Basketball? Tennis? Volleyball? Soccer? Softball? Field hockey? Gymnastics? Track& field? Well I think BB and VB huge skew towards selection for height rules them out for best athletes, shallow pool. Of the rest I do not see lacrosse by design being narrowly selected other than its regional nature however much explosion is going on around the country. Just by number of participants/ nature of game you might have to give it to soccer. Lacrosse is a difficult game. There is an endurance/ sprint component, hand eye coordination, spatial awareness, and toughness needed to play well. The winner of the women's decathlon might be the best athlete? Who knows?

Maybe, tough to say. If the other Midfielders had the ball work through them on offense it would be easier to see. Definitely a top talent and nice girl. But not the most dominant player in the 2022 age bracket as she was in middle school when she was bigger, stronger, and faster than others. She has worked very hard and has the talent to be on UMD. She is a great player. Just not the top 2022 as some state here.
Now for the Dad coach, I wouldn't be surprised if he pops up on the UMD staff. Just saying it has happened everywhere and he knows the UMD coaches through his older daughter. Don't be shocked. Don't get me wrong, he is generally a nice guy. Just a little heavy handed when it comes to ALWAYS being on the lax staff for his daughters events and teams.

I will bite. What makes a women’s soccer, basketball, field hockey or any other player more athletic than a lacrosse player? PLEASE enlighten us.
Still waiting to be enlightened...you coming back to answer us?

Maybe, tough to say. If the other Midfielders had the ball work through them on offense it would be easier to see. Definitely a top talent and nice girl.

Or he could be a normal parent and sit on the sidelines and just enjoy watching her play

Will your daughter try out for Under Armour or American Select? If she tries out for both, and makes both teams, which one will you select?

In my opinion, they are nothing but money grabs unless your daughter plays for the coach(es) that will be doing the evaluating. They know who they are taking before the tryouts begin and it's a waste of time and money.

Correct! I just saw the coaches for the 23’s!!! I though it said that no club coaches will be involved, maybe for evaluations, but don’t tell me that she has no control on who gets on her team!

Coach for 22 Highlight is a 2022 club coach and club director.

Don’t try out then. People will always blame evaluators for their kid not being good enough!

If that is what UA can get this year they are in trouble. That club trying to get his girls on the team I guess. Weak club team and 2nd rate club. Exactly the reason American Select was started. Ps. The American select has support of all the top clubs.

Proven? Maybe those kids who made it two years ago just barely made it. Maybe they were outplayed in tryouts last year. Seems that if those kids weren’t just penciled in because they made it the year prior, that would indicate that tryouts matter.

You want fair tryouts, except for the players that have made the team before. That seems like a contradiction in theory.

It “proves” that it has EVERYTHING to do w/ who the coaches are...look at who the coach is & see how many girls come from their school/club. The girls that didn’t even get called back last year all came from a school where their coach had coached the year prior...not good enough? Those same girls are ALL committed to TOP D1 schools!!!! But weren’t “good enough” to even be called back last year...it’s a pathetic set up & in no way indicates who how well the girl is as a player!

So when those girls made it and their coach was involved, they were undeserving because it is a pathetic set up. Got it.

Your daughter is going to to TOP D1 program. Get over the fact she didn’t make a money maker team 2 years in a row, or you won’t be happy when she’s at that TOP D1 program and others are playing in front of her.

The girls deserved to make it, and deserved to make it the following year but didn't because the new coach pulled in players from their school/club. So, yes it's a pathetic set up.

As long as the evaluators and coaches are connected to certain clubs and schools the process will never change. The only way it will change is for Corrigan to change it. the 22 players chosen are not the best 22 players who tried out, there is no arguing this.

I bet for the older girls if you did a NFL draft type drills for lacrosse and then some scrimmages to make the girls feel good for coming out and then just picked roster spots by their drill scores you would be giving the colleges what they want. I think the average college coach just wants to know what pieces of clay are the best. They will mold them into a masterpiece. 10th and 11th grade players should be good enough at catching and throwing as a baseline, maybe scratch some that are awful in the scrimmage. What drills? shuttle drill, catching on the run both hands 4 catches over 40 yds, 40 yd dash, back pedal drill? Shot speed? You could come up with some others to measure. It would show the potential left of players if they don't shine in the scrimmage. Obviously it would be great to do well in drills and scrimmage, but I would bet the college coach would love a super athlete over one that just had one behind the back shot go in during a scrimmage. Just my 2 cents.

This is a joke right? Some salty dads thoughts only. Looking at Baltimore command team. 8 players from Sw 23 blue and not one Sw evaluator/ coach. How did that happen. The 22’s that made it in 19 are trying out against 21’s in 2020. Might have something to do with it and if you sat in on evals you would know that 15 evaluators helped decide team. Not 1 coach could get 1 player from their school/club on a team without being called out by another evaluator. You had evaluators from lots of schools and the big clubs in MD. But keeping thinking that and don’t try out and cry it’s a bad system. Baltimore has done pretty well in these events so they most be getting it close to right. And aren’t there more than 23 top D1 players in the area. If so then quite a few don’t make it and still have a great college career. You my friend are a clown.

I'm confused with why the argument is "done" because "Highlight was 3 ladies"? One of them being a Hero's director, one being at Bryn Mawr and the other having their hand in M&D???? Sooooooo again, how is the "argument done"??????? Count how many of the girls came from M&D and Hero's alone? Hmmmmmm

Any word on where 2025 girls are going next year? Usually a big topic of discussion. doesn't seem like Taylor has recruited kids, or if MCD is not recruiting anymore. SPSG seems like the IT school! John Carroll is going to be a sleeper school watch out. Ton of 23/24 girls at JC already. Maryvale seems strong too.

So when those girls made it and their coach was involved, they were undeserving because it is a pathetic set up. Got it.

The girls deserved to make it, and deserved to make it the following year but didn't because the new coach pulled in players from their school/club. So, yes it's a pathetic set up.
As long as the evaluators and coaches are connected to certain clubs and schools the process will never change. The only way it will change is for Corrigan to change it. the 22 players chosen are not the best 22 players who tried out, there is no arguing this.

Well the highlight evaluators have done something right since they've won the tournament the last two years. I don't know what kids are being referred to that made it the 2 years prior but they must be 2022s because all the 2021s that had made UA the 2 years prior made the Highlight team so they had been on the team for 3 straight years. I'm guessing you are referring to NDP 2022s since Mac Coached the Command team in 2019. Seems rather disingenuous to argue that those girls made it the 2 years prior when Mac was coaching them but when they had to move up to Highlight they didn't make it because Mac was coaching command. You are saying that girls that made it when their coach picked the team should have been guaranteed spots when he wasn't? Not to mention the fact that they also had to beat out 2021s this past year? That makes no sense.

This is a joke right? Some salty dads thoughts only. Looking at Baltimore command team. 8 players from Sw 23 blue and not one Sw evaluator/ coach. How did that happen. The 22’s that made it in 19 are trying out against 21’s in 2020. Might have something to do with it and if you sat in on evals you would know that 15 evaluators helped decide team. Not 1 coach could get 1 player from their school/club on a team without being called out by another evaluator. You had evaluators from lots of schools and the big clubs in MD. But keeping thinking that and don’t try out and cry it’s a bad system. Baltimore has done pretty well in these events so they most be getting it close to right. And aren’t there more than 23 top D1 players in the area. If so then quite a few don’t make it and still have a great college career. You my friend are a clown.[/quote]

It is a horrible system. PERIOD. Again, how do you explain girls that made the team one year, do not even get a CALL BACK the following year? Not even called back??? That's a little strange IMO. The Highlight coach this year - non of "his girls" have made it in the past...hmmmm....what are the odds that at least 2 will be on it this year??? We will have to wait and see how UP AND UP this is...oops...it's NOT.[/quote]

There were a bunch of M&D and SW 2021 girls that are committed to top D1 schools that didn't get called back either. It's not easy to make the team.

IDK. If it's her, her 22 daughter had to go down and tryout and made the DC team in 2018 so she hadn't been on the Baltimore team the last 2 years. Point was that 2021 M&D and SW girls committed to MD, PSU, Michigan, JMU, Loyola and several other top schools didn't get called back either. Assuming a 2022 that had been on team 2 years prior should automatically be called back is a big assumption. I will say that for whatever reason the Highlight team had a very small amount of girls in callback game. If I remember correctly it was only 32 which means all but 10 of the girls in callback game made the team.

Bottom line is playing or not playing in the UA does not qualify you as the "BEST" or not the best (if you don't make it). There is way too much emphasis on "you have to make it to prove that your the best". There are so many girls that have never tried out, or have tried out and not made it that go on to play in top D1 schools. These girls have enough to stress out about, they don't need something like this to justify themselves as players. Just my 2 cents.

The 2025 post has nothing to do with the UA posts. You sound like a parent trying to throw shade on someone else to take it off you. Move on. Have your TOP D1 player tryout again this year. She will be the older grad year and most likely make it(with or without phone calls), and you will feel better.

FYI- yes,I did have a 22 who tried out and didn’t make it last year. She is a good player who had an average tryout and didn’t deserve to make the team last year. I’m sure there are politics but they didn’t apply to my daughter this year so leave us alone. STOP calling out kids and families on this site! Someone else obviously feels their daughter should’ve made it but stop the finger pointing. I hope my teenage daughter doesn’t hear that random adults are spending their time talking about her or her family on an anonymous forum

Maybe they knew the parents were crazy and didn't; want to deal with them??
Maybe they wanted the best team and sometimes its not always the "best players" which is really subjective anyway.
Then there is always willy wonka's golden ticket.

Either did you!

TEAM SELECTION PROCESS REDEFINED.
All players within the graduation year and region are welcome to try out and compete for a spot. The tryout process will be unlike any other, with collegiate coaches evaluating and selecting players. Club coaches will not be selecting the teams.

PROFESSIONAL INDEPENDENT EVALUATORS
COLLEGIATE COACH EVALUATORS
NO CLUB COACHES WILL SELECT THE TEAMS
EACH REGION WILL HAVE 4 TEAMS - 1 PER GRAD YEAR
DIGITAL EVALUATIONS
ALL COLLEGE COACHES INVITED TO TRYOUTS
IDENTIFYING THE BEST PLAYERS FROM EACH REGION REGARDLESS OF CLUB OR HIGH SCHOOL AFFILIATION



They are only the coaches, they have nothing to do with the selection process.

There is no problem with it if the coach is objective. Last year at UA Jesters coach selected 5 of his players and YJ coach selected 15 of hers including 2 from the 2nd YJ team. Legacy had 1 girl and TG had 1 girl there is no way that is objective that's why you need an independent evaluator to select the team based on ability not what club they are from.

Coaches shouldn't have input at something like UA because they can't be objective. The same way parent coaches can't be objective. These teams should be chosen by who performs well at the tryouts. Nothing else should be considered. It shouldn't matter how strong a coach knows a girl "can be" or has been when she plays for him - it should be SOLELY based on those tryouts. And coaches know their players can perform well , even when they aren't having a good tryout, so they end up making teams like UA when other girls had better tryouts. That has always been my issue with these kinds of selection teams. And honestly - some of the girls that make these teams 100% deserve it - but alot of the time other girls are as deserving and don't ,

If independent evaluators are there and don't know the girls well - the teams would be chosen by tryout performance. You also eliminate any club/HS coaches trying to promote their players in the selection process. It is the best way to do it. I think you will see that alot of the same girls will still make the team - but if you remove the coaches and selectors from what are considered the "top" clubs in an area more girls from other teams will start to make some of these teams.

"Expert parents" won't even have a say in who gets selected. I'm not sure what that evens means.

Just my humble opinion.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls High School - 02/03/21 05:45 PM
Not sure I agree about others from ‘not top’ clubs will make it. The kids in top clubs teams are mostly a step above the others due to playing the best all summer. Other than that I agree and either way 100% of the evaluators, coaches and parents will never agree on team makeup but hopefully this reduces some of the complaining.

Not the same thing in that it costs $595 to play if you are selected where as UA Underclass is free. $125 for try out for American Select and $145 to tryout for UA. $595 is an insane amount of money to expect people to pay to play in this event. Plus it's in Delaware so everyone will need to find hotels which there aren't a ton of in that area.

My guess is considering it costs $595 plus a $125 tryout fee to play in American Select that the coaches are getting paid a lot more money than they did by UA.

22 make it in 2022 thru 2025 in each region. 11K in tryout fees + 52K in tourney costs. 63K per region? Tryout fees for the other girls who don't make the teams is just icing on the cake. Just think of the cost if it was not sponsored? If you were committed already I would get my parents to give me the $700 bucks for college spending money.

The best players will make UA and AS will be for the next set of girls. UA is still the best and it hopefully leads to the biggest HS individual achievement; making the Senior UA AA game.
People.can call this past year a disaster but UA still had the best 12-15 2023 girls from the island chosen. no arguing that. maybe the last 8-10 spots were politics.
That said the AS should be a good event but the best players will still be at the FREE UA games

Corrigan Sports/UA had to open the Call Back Academy to anyone who tried out because they were not able to get enough players to participate otherwise. UA is slowly becoming irrelevant because of the role they let club directors, club coaches, and parent coaches play. It is not a fair process, and until you pull the clubs/high schools/parents out of the evaluation process and start to use more outside evaluators like Nike is going to ATTEMPT to do, you are going to continue to suffer. People have woke because of the gross display of bias this past summer at all regional tryouts, not just Baltimore and DC. I hope Nike is more legit for the sakes of the players and their bank accounts.

It is not a fair process, and until you pull the clubs/high schools/parents out of the evaluation process and start to use more outside evaluators like Nike is going to ATTEMPT to do, you are going to continue to suffer. People have woke because of the gross display of bias this past summer at all regional tryouts, not just Baltimore and DC. I hope Nike is more legit for the sakes of the players and their bank accounts.

Nike is attempting to do it at the price of $720. UA is $145 if you make the team. For the life of me I can't figure out what on earth would make anyone willing to pay $575 more for the same product. Both events will have a ton of college coaches attending. Both events give you a uniform. Can't say Nike is a money grab but compared to UA it certainly is.

People.can call this past year a disaster but UA still had the best 12-15 2023 girls from the island chosen. no arguing that. maybe the last 8-10 spots were politics.
That said the AS should be a good event but the best players will still be at the FREE UA games

how much thought did UA and Nike give to the dates of these 2 tournaments. The last week of July is a huge vacation week for a lot of lax families, especially on the East Coast. they will going to the beaches from LI to OBX. thank god my kids committed and i'll be sitting in a beach chair that week

So notIntelligent they are on the same weekend. You will end up with 2 watered down events. Some regions the better girls will be at UA and other regions they will be at AS. Why have it on the same weekend?

The best players will try out in May for AS. UA tryouts in July will get those that didn’t make it. Plenty enough talent to fill both rosters. AS is scaring UA because it goes off first and you know no girl wants to be left out and if you just go to UA you increase your chances of missing out.

The 22s are basically done, very few 23s will make any UA regional team. Those few that do are already known by the top college coaches. Coaches would be better served by attending AS.

Legacy had 1 girl and TG had 1 girl there is no way that is objective that's why you need an independent evaluator to select the team based on ability not what club they are from.

That UA was a disaster. you could almost say corrupt...lol UA lost its credibility on that one. Maybe why people are jumping ship

They had 5 - 8 girls that would made it regardless of the politics.... the rest made it well.... it was so blatantly obvious ...you would be fool not to see it. i think UA really exposed the truth ,,,,lots of people woke up including coaches who don't want to associate with the brand ....Nike Select looks like they heard the complaints and looking at their front page promises to "redefine the selection process" ... will see if they can do it.

Have you taken the time to look who is involved in running this event? It’s the same club directors who previously ran UA tryouts and picked their own players.. nothing has changed. They created a new event where they get to line their own pockets instead of the money going to Corrigan.
And if you play for one of the clubs whose director is involved.... there won’t be a choice as to which event you go to. forget Under Armour... you will go to American Select

Oh yeah... and if you play for a club not represented by the American Select leadership team... you’re probably not making it

I wonder if AS will do drills this year? UA has done them in the past but last year they just threw the girls on the field 18 at a time and said PLAY! Just not a fan of the whole format. Especially if you have a defensive side player. They really only look at the ones who score the goals.
Yeah, you get the good kids but this past summer at UA it was kind of laughable. The call back game had so.many.kids. Even kids from B teams whose siblings played for DIv 1- picked only for clout. We have been playing too long to not recognize this. And then the cry for attendees for the call back academy. If your girl is good, there is a school out there for her.

Whining starting already ! Those coaches won’t be involved in selecting if you can read. Also those coaches have some pretty good history at selecting kids and winning. I think I see 7 different clubs involved as well ! The players for these teams usually come from teams with the best records in each area. Why is that ? Same ones that get recruited by the better schools too!

Some great points here. Teams with only a couple true defenders and attackers. Kinda like taking only qb’s and a rb and wr for an all star football game. Need to make some roster requirements. Then again all the ball hog goal scorers will say they are more valuable than a defender that can’t score.

Enough already. Don’t do it. Let those that want to go ahead and try. Fact is good players make these teams and some good ones get left out. May not play well on tryout day or have what evaluators look for. Sounds like you have a problem for every solution.

You should be selected for UA for everything you do in HS and club. Still be some politics but you telling me a kid who scores 50 in conf 1 and is a top player in club has a bad tryout should be cut based off tryout then you don’t want to win the tourney.
Just like USA hockey or hoops. they pick the best talent. they know who the best girls are going into tryouts and that’s why people say maybe 3-5 spots are open.

So send invites to the top kids in the IAAM
and you don’t need tryouts. Best players play in A conference. Not sure how you decide command team. Not all club teams play top level. By looks of it SW , Heros and M&D dominated rosters of both teams and all tournament.

The above statement is absurd. If you're just going to pick girls who someone considers the top players then why even have tryouts ? Instead of Under Armor 150 - just do an Under Armor top 25 and make it invite only. You're either invited or you're not. I'm sure area club coaches could agree on who they think the 25 of the strongest players in an area are. But if you're holding open tryouts that cost $125-$145 per girl then YES it should absolutely be based on the tryouts. If a girl is that good that she's getting "50 in conf 1" then it should show through tryouts. And if that same "50 in conf 1" player has a terrible tryout - then yes she should be cut. That is the purpose of an "open tryout". If it were done your way you would have to hold tryouts that were called "the first 18 spots of the roster are pre-decided and all 50 of you remaining girls can vie for 7 spots" tryouts. They would not be able to continue to attract girls to tryouts or girls would look for other events to go to - which is EXACTLY what is happening with American Select. Lord - People who make statements like the one above are the reason parents are on here complaining about tryouts being biased.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls High School - 02/08/21 08:32 PM
Why are the tryouts so expensive? I guess UA tryout fees are subsidizing the "main event" what is the idea behind the AS tryout fees being nearly the same? You think the college coaches deciding the teams would have a vested interest in being there anyway? Maybe it is a way to pay the college assistants some extra scratch. It is weird. I expect a big turnout for the American select game tryouts in the hot bed areas at least. You would think they could make $50 a tryout max. Jack the cost of the "main" event if you need more money. I bet they just based it off UA tryout fees. Like how now all the clubs have matched M&D's fees for tryouts. I'm bleeding but coming back for more. Insane train leaving soon all Lax parents on board!

Why would any committed 2022 player pay the $595 to play on AS? I can see the 2023-2025 girls trying out for AS since it's first but was is the gain of playing for AS if you're already committed? Roll the dice and tryout for UA since the goal once committed is to get selected for the Senior UA AA team. Playing AS instead of UA Underclass is a mistake if that is your goal.

Not sure who is telling you that AS is where the talent will go but they are lying.
Best players will still play UA. that’s a fact.
clubs involved with AS for the majority of their kids have a better shot and $$$$$. more teams for AS. only command and highlight and clubs don’t bring in the cash

Because the $$$$$ is in the tryout fee.
And 120 parents think that maybe their Katie can grab one of those 3-5 spots. Now that’s the truth and the best part is it’s up to you whether you think $150 is worth that shot. Unless of course your kid scored 57 for McDonough last spring then you are a lock.

UA is much more important in terms of being selected for the UA Senior AA game. If anything skipping UA underclass for AS may hurt you in that process

I think the dads (I’m guessing) have lost their minds on this forum. I checked it out because my son plays HS and wanted right see what people were thinking about the HS MIAA/IAAM season. Like on the boys side, a lot of garbage given to UA selections. Generally you can argue with a few at the margins but the best players make it and shocker also play on the top few clubs. It’s not a conspiracy but the boys thread is like 10% as worked up as over here. Move on dads!

The best players will try out in May for AS. UA tryouts in July will get those that didn’t make it. Plenty enough talent to fill both rosters. AS is scaring UA because it goes off first and you know no girl wants to be left out and if you just go to UA you increase your chances of missing out.

Why would any committed 2022 player pay the $595 to play on AS? I can see the 2023-2025 girls trying out for AS since it's first but was is the gain of playing for AS if you're already committed? Roll the dice and tryout for UA since the goal once committed is to get selected for the Senior UA AA team. Playing AS instead of UA Underclass is a mistake if that is your goal.

If a player had the choice of WHICH to play - UA or AS, which would they choose? Which looks better for them ?

UA every day of the week is the better option. I believe it will be much more difficult to make the UA team however[/quote]

Neither matter for recruiting. Just ask anyone who's been through the process.

Isn’t this the first year for AS? How can you make the statement if this is the first year?

making a UA underclass team is not a condition for the making the UA senior game. There have been plenty of boys and girls that have made the senior game that may have only played 1 or 2 years on a underclass team or may not have ever played on a underclass team.

Let’s see who skips AS and waits to July to just try and make UA ! My bet is lots will tryout , commit and pay before UA gets to July 6 tryout date.

Never said it was a condition. But it certainly gets you on Corrigans and IL's radar. Considering they're the one's that choose the Senior UA teams it certainly helps. Look at the watch list Corrigan put out. Where do you think most of those names came from?

I'm sure AS will require payment prior to the UA tryouts. $595 is just crazy. $720 including tryout. You can go to 2-3 camps on college campuses for that money. What do you think you are getting for that money? The same coaches on the sidelines of AS will be on the sideline of whatever tournaments your daughter's club team will be playing in all summer. The draw of UA is that it a cool honor for the kids and IT'S FREE. If it was $595 I doubt I would have ever let my kids play in it.

It won't be able to work that way since the AS tryouts are much earlier. If you want to make UA you will have to run that risk of not making it and not playing in either event.

Of course it's not that "important". But it means a lot to the kids that have worked so hard over the years to be recognized. Stop being obtuse.

Does anyone know how Under Armour 150 selects the players? How important is their game video submission? Do they only take so many from each club/team? And for folks who have been to the event in the past - is it a good one to go to? Thanks in advance.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls High School - 02/17/21 12:40 AM
Try out for AS, if you make it pay them Try out for UA and if you make it now you can decide where to go.
The folks running these events know how to separate you from your money. The timing and scheduling of these tryouts and events is not random.

I don’t believe the event is very selective, offers are sent to most club players.
The value of any film is currently very high.. the entire 2022 class was selected based on film. The more film you can have at your disposal will be a bonus. If things return to 2019 and coaches are roaming events again, the value of film will be decreased, it’s never unless tho.
The only negative to this type of event is you will be placed on a random team with disparate skill levels. If you’re on a weak team and play attack the ball may never get to your end, same with goalie or defense on a stronger team.
Like any event, if it fits in your schedule and you can afford, it’s worth going too.

This year it's the same time as the new HS National Championship tournament. The college coaches will be at the HS Championships. If your team isn't going to that tournament, I'd go to UA150 for some film.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls High School - 02/17/21 01:13 AM
1500 players tried out for 300 spots. So maybe more selective than in years past?
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls High School - 02/17/21 01:27 AM
We got great film from our stint at UA 150. My daughter is a defensive middie and some of these girls were like putty in her hands. She got very good film from this tournament because of it. Note that some of these girls were like fish out of water back in the "Big East".
The selection of players seemed very random though. Lots of flyover country girls. There was a good sprinkling of girls from all clubs, not overloaded with one club and it seemed the organizers did not let that happen - that means some SW and M&D girls probably were turned away.
They got over 1500 submissions this year and with Covid, building accolades has been difficult so I think thats why so many girls applied this year. Its all about building your recruit profile so you need as many accolades as possible. Just like the person said about the 22's--- recruited all on film.
I say if you get the chance - do it. Its during the week, you get lots of film, and great swag.

I heard that it would be extended as well...doesn't make much sense to me why though. I thought the Events are in July though, so D1 should be there.

There are plenty of coaches and assistants to go around...schools will certainly be able to be at both events. One does not trump the other.

College coaches are currently in season until they hope they end of May. They have their own teams to worry about. They don’t have time to go watch high school games while in their own season. 5/31 will stick. Highly doubt they will extend it past that when summer tournaments kick off in June and it will have been a year since players were watched from a sideline.

Exactly. Lacrosse will not factor into this decision at all. This will be up to what basketball coaches want to do. I know we live in our lacrosse bubble but the NCAA doesn't care about lacrosse when it comes to decisions like this.

Exactly. Lacrosse will not factor into this decision at all. This will be up to what basketball coaches want to do. I know we live in our lacrosse bubble but the NCAA doesn't care about lacrosse when it comes to decisions like this.
It won’t extend past 5/31.

Only you care about current 8th graders and what they are going to do for a team a year down the road. Good grief. Can we just get through this season first?

Considering all the talent they are losing after this year they're going to need to kill it with the 2025 class.

SPSG must always underachieve because every year the parents think they have the best team.

No one has thought that until the last 2 years and really not until this year as McD still had a ton of great players last year. If anything SPSG overachieved making the finals 2 years ago and taking McD to double OT twice.

McDonogh will not be the team to beat this year. Their era is over. It was a great run, they have been fun to watch and continue to be fun to watch, but it’s over.

I don't think CR has much to do with recruiting anymore. Just so happens that St. Paul's geographically is a better fit for most of the girls attending. In addition may already have older siblings attending SP, making it a natural fit. Just my 2 cents.

I would not count McDonogh out yet. Heard that TC actually did recruit some great talent for the 2025 year. Some of the top, actually.

SPSG has absolutely nothing to do with geography. It's all about what the crowd is doing. Don't be fooled.

Knowing that most of the kids that are going to sp live withing 5-10 mins I would say geography has some play. Doesn't hurt that friends and siblings attend as well. From a parent that has no skin in the game.

The fact that SPSG has the best coach that got into training a lot of these up and coming girls when they were younger certainly plays a part in it. She identified a lot of talent early and recruited them for years.

People got sick of paying TC $120 for a training session that she barely paid attention to and MG became the main trainer for a lot of these girls.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls High School - 02/25/21 09:08 PM
Wow - then all those girls who live in HOward County and play for clubs who practice far out in howard county really live close to SPSG. Who cares where anyone chooses to go to school but it is not geography. Its that SPSG will have a good team with a good coach -and people think they'll take over one of the top spots around - and that's ok. but that's what it is.

That might be the case also. SP is a good school, so there are many reasons why some would choose to send their daughter. It also doesn't hurt that at least 4-5 of the girls that are going there live in the area. So why drive farther for the same thing.

Hysterical...8th grade Parents (Yes, we know who the crazy parent is) are even weighing in. Let THIS SEASON play and worry about your 8th Club Team. When your daughter gets to High School, then make comments if your daughter even makes Varsity. Too many club parents want to say my daughter is on Varsity as a Freshman. It’s an honor, but unless they are seeing substantial time on the field as a Varsity player (which is rare) they should be on a Fresh/Soph or JV team and being a leader. Stop trying to brag on FB/Instagram/SnapChat that your 9th grader made varsity. In reality, her field time will be extremely limited, but by all means, push for her to be a bench warmer so you can brag on Social Media.

You mean, it's more important to actually PLAY than sit the bench?! Noooooo

Parents just don't get it, which unfortunately rubs off on the kids. Just look at what happened to the GCS 2021 class when many of them didn't make varsity as freshman.

When yours does you can talk. Until then hush ! At good schools many are there to learn for when their time comes. A few special ones play. I see 1 at spsg that can contribute next year if she keeps working. Tall draw girl and left handed. Most will be just wearing a uniform. I wanna see my kid play not just share a seat on the bus with a contributor. On another note word is another 24 joining spsg so someone in 25 class gets bumped down.

My daughter is a senior and has started every game she’s ever played on a top IAAM team. So have many others. So plenty of us can talk and actually know what we’re talking about and not be a loudmouth parent of an 8th grader telling people their kids won’t play as freshman when you have absolutely no idea.

Lots of girls feel this way. Those on top teams feel like they have to stick it out to make their parents happy. Those at lower tier give it up easier for sure. Number 1 reason kids at all levels quit is when the team drama is more an issue than learning abs having fun with their friends.

To her credit, I was already sick of the lacrosse drama in 2nd grade, but loved to play. So she decided to become the goalie and has never looked back.

IAAM regular season starts today with John Carroll @ SPSG. Good luck to all the teams. Great for the girls to be playing again!

IAAM Predictions?
I'd say that McD, SPSG and NDP are in the top tier. GCS and Bryn Mawr in the next group. Gerstell, Maryvale, RPCS, John Craroll, Spalding and St. Marys in tier 3. And Garrison, Severn and Mt de Sales in final group

NDP should drop and GCS move up to tier 1. John Carroll should be at the top of tier 3, maybe into tier 2.

I agree with ST Pauls and MCD. i dont know much about NDP except to say coach is excellent and are always competitive. Bryn Mawr has an excellent Goalie and picked up some really good freshman which will help that team. I think Maryvale will surprise some people. Also a strong goalie and some really good athletes. Hope they let fans attend games because it should be an exciting season. Good Luck to all the girls and praying for an injury free season for all teams.!!

Based on the 15-3 loss to SPSG last Thursday John Carroll is going to have to show a lot more to belong in tier 2.

Sounds like most schools are at least allowing 1-2 parents per player to attend for now. Hopefully will open up more as the season progresses. Just glad they're playing and that some fans are allowed.

Byrn Mawr and Maryvale play Wednesday so we'll see how it shakes out.

That's just silly. There's no way Maryvale, GCS or BM are better than McD or NDP.

SPSG and NDP are the most experienced teams with a lot of seniors that have already played a lot of games in the IAAM. BM may be 3rd in that category. Most the other schools hardly have any girls that have even played much meaningful time in an IAAM game. McD and GCS have good junior classes but most of them didn't play much as freshman as the 2020 classes at both schools was loaded.

These girls all have so much game experience at the club level, showcases, etc. I wouldn't make too much out of who has more experience playing in IAAM games.

I agree these will be the top teams. McD and NDP lost a ton of talent this past year, but I am not counting them out. SPSG gained a ton of talent. GCS only lost 1 or 2 seniors and gained strong 23s.

I think this will be SPSG’s year. Will MG go out on top after? I hope not. She has done amazing things there.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls High School - 03/16/21 02:16 PM
I think it all comes down to the upperclassman. SPSG has the strongest 21 class, so I think this is their year. GCS has the strongest 22 class, I see them being in the mix for the next 2 years. Just my 2 cents.

this is the densest statement i have seen on this page in quite a while. most of the GCS juniors had a playing time as freshmen. 2 even started the entire year. There are several McD juniors that also played a lot as freshmen.

Well considering the best 2022 in the country barely got on the field as a freshman at McD I'm not sure it was that dense. The statement is that "most" of them didn't play much as a freshman which is absolutely true.

SPSG didn't add a lot of talent this year. Only a couple freshman made varsity. They're going to be good because they start 7 or 8 seniors and most of them have started every game since they were freshman.

If you think age based club games in any way come close to playing in the IAAM I question if your daughter has every played in the IAAM.

Played yes. Were on the field in the playoffs in Overtime when it mattered. Not many of them.

Every year people are on here talking about how great GCS is going to be. I remember when the 2021s got there and people were on here talking about how great the 2021 class was at GCS. Now there are only 5 2021s on the team and only a couple of them play a lot. They didn't even have a JV team so of course a ton of the 2022s were on varsity as freshmen.

They have no point. 'only a couple of them play a lot'...3 are starters. No one has said the GCS is going to be great, only that they can contend. Which is what they have done since moving to the A division by making the semi finals each year. Maybe they get to the finals this year, and maybe they don't

Tough to come by. Tim Schwartz does a nice job covering games for the Cap Gazette. Otherwise, not much is out there.

No box scores, but game scores come out pretty fast here:

GCS has finished in the top 3 of the A conference for past 3 years and lost by a goal in the semis the past 2 years. There are actually only 4 seniors and all of them have played a significant amount, all 4 are committed to play in college. With a solid group of 22s (11 college commits??) I think its safe to say they will be strong this year and next. SPSG and McD are probably the 2 teams to beat but GCS should be right there.

PLEASE STOP. Stop with this and that. Who will be or should be in the top 5. Who really cares???

Be excited for all the girls to be on the field and playing. Who cares if they are in 9th or 12th grade, or what they did over the past 4 years.

Watch the girls play. For the love of God, be happy that they are playing after a year of no high school sports. Cheer for them, celebrate them, hug them.

I’m not new here. Just completely agitated. Parents rant and rave here, live in the past, post silliness about what 9th grader played, or what team should or should not be in top 5.

Here is an idea, if you want to play, get a stick and play. Oh wait, you’re the adult. So act like it.

Life is short. Too short for many, hug your kids, enjoy their ability to play and cheer them on. I have never witnessed the venom and crazy as things that are posted here about high school sport.

Oh. And yes, before the reply posts start, I am a parent. However, I actually player semi-pro baseball, so before the posts come about me being a dad and their kid not playing, it has nothing to do with that. I actually made it to the next level after high school and college. And yes, my daughter is on varsity.

It amazes me how adults can’t lift kids up, cheer for them, but rather post this team or that team should or could be #1 if this or that happened. Or that 3 years ago there was a JV and that’s why all the kids made varsity. WHO CARES

Take it from a someone that put in the time and effort, when it’s over, you remember the companionship of teammates and the support of your family. Yes, it’s great to win, but not at the expense of vilification of an opponent. Try to remember that next time you post. If you don’t think your daughter is watching you and your actions, then you have completely missed the boat.

The advise is...get a grip! Enjoy watching your daughters play & stop going on here to make a dig at players/schools/clubs/etc. Do you not have a life? Does it make you feel better to go on here & put daughters/schools down? It’s sad to think that parents share the sidelines w/ the parents that go on here & make the comments that they do.

Thanks Jackie Moon!!

So people should only post about how great it is that the kids are playing and how they hugged their daughter after a fair contest between two great teams? Not really the point of the site. Some of the vitriol is definitely over the top but there’s nothing wrong with people arguing which team is better. As lobbyists as individual girls aren’t called out in a negative way. That crosses the line.

Just celebrate your daughters, pick each other up, no need to be a negative clown. Be an adult. Be kind, be an example for your daughter

I think debating is good. Cheering for your daughters team is great. But calling kids or teams out negatively is exactly what is wrong with society.

The world would be better with a little Kindness. We can and will disagree, that is a normal. But to denigrate teams or players, just not what the world needs. Be an example for our kids

So discussing which teams are best is denigrating? Man you must be fun to be around on a daily basis. May as well shut the site down. So someone saying SPSG, McD and NDP are the best 3 teams is denigrating to who exactly? The other teams? Does it hurt your feelings when someone says that? I’m confused

Considering only GF parents were in attendance, and GF parents wouldn’t post this, it must be you had the live stream up. Thanks for being a fan and watching the first game of the season for both teams!! It’s been a year and it was raining, sorry everyone was a little rusty for you.

Why is GCS one of the only teams not allowing fans at games? There's plenty of room there. More so than at most schools.

Terrible decision...we are outside!! Just show up, no way for them to check.

Or maybe follow the rules so the girls can continue to play and not be penalized because of parents like you.

Garrison and Bryn Mawr do not allow visiting team spectators either

there is no logical reason that at least 1 visiting spectator shouldn't be able to attend GCS, GF or BM games

I completely agree that it is ridiculous that they are not allowing spectators (it's outside, give me a break)...but I also think some of these girls are probably enjoying the "quiet" instead of screaming crazy parents (since there are WAY too many out there).

One person should be permitted to attend games for carpool reasons alone because teams are not traveling via bus this season and players are responsible for their own rides. Not every team in the IAAM has 16 year old 9th and 10th graders who can drive themselves.

Is there a IAAM school that does have 16 year old freshman and sophomore that drive?

Don’t confuse the IAAM with the MIAA

Don't kid yourself - plenty of holdbacks in the IAAM.

On its way? they were top 2 or 3 in the league the past few years. They've been there. Not sure they have enough to win it all, but they should be near tops of the league again. GCS has beaten NDP 2 out of past 3 games they've played with each game being a 1 or 2 goal game. Will probably be close again.

Maybe the schools that play BM, GCS, and GF should ban fans of those schools. Totally silly parents are unable to watch a game outside at their schools.

I am sorry other schools don’t cater to you. What are they thinking?

GCS didn't cater to kids in their own school and that's why so many left in January. They would rather virtue signal than listen to science or to the parents paying tuition.

No one on the girls lax team left. if you are referring to the few on the boys team that left, they left to attend a school in that plays in the MIAA A division. there was no mass exodus of students from gcs. they are one of the few schools back in school 4 days a week.

Thank you for the apology. I really don't know what they are thinking as it is totally clueless response to the current situation. Playing basketball inside a gym, I get it. But standing outside watching a game is not allowed?? Really??

Oh sorry, they must be going through something different. If not, the other schools should hold them to the same standard.

Tight game. GCS will be in the Semis and have a real chance to win it all. People can say what they want, but GCS can beat any top team.

Considering McD almost lost to Maryvale yesterday I don’t think anyone should be saying who will be in the semis. I’d say a lot of teams have a chance this season.

Stop trolling. No GCS parent or player wrote this. It’s a long season with tough games ahead.

Agree. This is a weird season after no having a season. This season seems to be riddled with early injuries as well. It could be anyone’s year. Why don’t the hot heads just sit back and watch some great IAAM lacrosse and be glad there is a season.

Congrats. You beat 2 of the worst teams in the conference and only scored 4 goals against one of the best.

they haven't played the 2 worst teams in the conference yet. GF and Severn each have 1 win. there are several teams with no wins.

So reading comprehension isn’t your forte? The post said 2 of the worst. Not the 2 worst. I’m pretty certain neither GF or Severn will end up with more than 3 or 4 wins. John Carroll, Mt de Sales and Gerstell will also end up in the bottom 5.

So you don't think those 5 along with Roland Park will be the bottom of the IAAM this year? If not, who will? There's a clear segregation between McDonogh, SPSG, NDP, Glenelg, Brwn Mawr, Maryvale, Spalding and St. Mary's and the other 6,

Clear segregation? No.

Not enough games have been played.

Take St Mary's for example. St Mary's barely beat JC and Gerstell. And gave Maryvale a game. This is gonna be a weird year with Covid and shutdowns. Any given weekday.
