Agree 100%. The Hawks have a lock on AA County and parts of Howard County. In contrast, the talent in Baltimore only gets more diluted (Crabs, FCA, Looney's, 91...).

The perpetual knock on The Hawks is that the Hogan tournaments that the teams have to play in are demeaning to the brand. I know that the program makes money from the tournaments but let's face it, for the most part, they are low A to B events at best (except Naptown).

There really isn't an organization in Maryland othervirrus than Hawks that has quality teams at virtually every grade. Well run organization with coaches with serious lacrosse pedigree.

Not as much as you get to middle school. My 2021 played Naptown only last year and maybe a fall one the year before. This year is the same

Exploiting by taking the best kids that show up at tryouts and comply with league rules. Sounds very shady to me.

teaching kids how to play zone defenses great way to develop players. Nothing better then a 5-4 game at the youth level. LET THEM PLAY!!!!!

"Flat Brim" is a former Crabs coach/parent who wears distinctive baseball hats that feature flat visors. (he also wears colorful sunglasses at times). The scores are a reference to a couple of games played between Hawks/Diamondbacks. Hawks won both, but then again, they had a superteam last year and beat everyone and many by wide margins (which I define as more than 5 goals). Hawks are the kings of the hill at the moment akin to the crabs teams of 5 or 6 years ago that did not lose, and won big. Diamondbacks are the "kid brothers" at the moment with continuing potential.

Any mention of Hawks and API in the same sentence is silly but now even more so since 8 of their kids were at Hawks tryouts and several joined. How many How many Hawks were at Dbag tryouts? How many left to go to Dbags? None and None. How many of the Hawks who got cut this year moved to the Diamondbacks? None. They were the only so called elite team still having tryouts when the Hawks made cuts and the ex Hawks decided to drop down a level or 2 instead of trying out for the 3rd best team in the world. Says a lot!!!

Clearly you follow posts! This must be the guy obsessed with "flat brim" as there are no posts that talk about him in the Hawks forum! DoI need to ask the moderator of this forum who you are? It is a little scary that you constantly talk about this guy and his kid!

lol
Hogan tournaments are geared towards all levels of lacrosse and more specific to youth level lacrosse. This has been so since day one. His tournaments are a great way for all Rec, Rec All Stars and smaller clubs from all across the country and Canada to play in a tournament. Hogan tourneys have a slot for almost every level of lacrosse . So teams can fit in and play against same level competiton.All of his tournaments are in great locations for families . Hogan Lax tournaments are also by far the best run tournaments out there.

Hawks happens to be in Annapolis same place St. Marys is. Shocker their teams have kids from that school on them. (kids good enough to play on any other team)

They are talking about the 2022 Hawks. I believe Flat Brim is a 2023 coach that bounces between Looneys and Crabs with his kid.

This is a stretch. Yes, there are a few SP kids on the hawks but there are far more St Mary's kids. There is a very clear bias towards having St Marys kids on Hawks teams. Hogan has even admitted it before.

Matt has never said any such thing, this is simply not true. No one school is favored over another. The two schools that you mention are two of the best programs in the county, so naturally there are going to be numbers from those schools at the best program in the county. There are kids from everywhere on the rosters.

If you think that the Hawks organization does not favor St. Mary's kids and that St. Mary's lacrosse does not favor Hawks kids you are either blissfully ignorant or simply stupid

Hogan started Hawks while coaching at St Mary's to keep his kids from having to go up to Baltimore to play for Crabs or the other high profile recruiting teams.

Hogan's son and Cottle's son and many other Dad coaches kids on Hawks play for st. Mary's.

Severna Parks head coach is also a Hawks coach.

So there is likely a bias towards both these schools.

I heard the 2022 Hawks cut 3 kids and 2 were from Baltimore. I heard the 2023 team cut 3 kids and 2 were from Baltimore. One was a set of brothers. Both the 2022 and 2023 brothers were asked to stay on the B team and turned down tryouts and offers from other team . None of the 4 cut Baltimore kids are playing anywhere. I guess they like holdbacks and out of state kids over Baltimore kids.

The Baltimore clubs are all a mess right now at those ages. None of them can keep players or coaches.

I am neither, just more educated about the tryout process than you are. Your perception of how things are done is askew, if you think that attending a particular school plays into selection for a team.

I heard this , I heard that, sounds like my teenage daughter and her friends . The amount of stupidity on these forums is comical. Here is a thought, maybe these players just had a bad try out or flat out not good enough for that team. Parents better also start realizing that clubs, coaches will not take a kid who has a dad that is a jerk off and is known to be a loud mouth. Character means as much as talent. Every try out ant where in the state has its flaws but Hogan runs about the most impressive and cut throat tournaments, camps, try outs and teams. The WIN column proves it year after year.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Annapolis Hawks - 09/11/17 12:10 AM
Character is important but talent wins out. No question about it on any club, not just the Hawks. A dad of one the Hawks top goalies posted anti-Hawk comments on Facebook and was accepted back. The same dad took his kid off of the field on three occasions in the past two years. The kid is very good but to say that the parent's actions out weigh the kids skills is just plain absurd.
Winning is the only thing that is important on any club. You have to win in order to charge $2000 and keep kids consistently in your program. Do not think of a team as developmental. Think of it as $2000 x 24 kids. A lot of money is being made off of these families.

And the crazy thing most of the Hawks parents would rather lose every game rather than deal with that nonsense. Probably the worse parent I have witnessed in youth lacrosse and I have been on sidelines of Long Island team LOL Glad they aren't on my son's team.

Nice try but you are so far off on this. Why would you make up lor spread lies like this? I don't like the Hawks one bit but I know all the Baltimore kids and their families on The 2022 and 2023 teams. The 2022 brother did get cut but he IS on another club and they are looking forward to their new challenge. Be is a talented and great kid and he will be fine. The dad said how the Hawks coach was making calls on his behalf to other teams including the team my son plays with. His brother DID NOT get cut from the 2023 team and is playing with them again this season unless something changed in the last few days. The other 2022 Baltimore kid DID NOT get cut by the Hawks. He is an outstanding player who loves lacrosse more than maybe any kid I know. He tried out for another club and accepted their offer. He was NOT cut. He was a valuable member of the Hawks for several years. His family was very active with the Hawks also. Never heard them say a bad word. He has many friends already on his new team. He is looming forward to his new team and upcoming season. The other Baltimore kid on the 2023 team did get cut. I don't know them as well as the others but he IS on another club..i think he was only with the Hawks for 1 season. He is a really good player that really knows how to play the game. He will be fine.

I have no idea what Hawks think about Baltimore players and don't really care but stop LYING about individual kids and families like this. You already have someone on this threaded questioning the talents of the kids and the character of their parents. Disgusting

I heard the 2022 Hawks cut 3 kids and 2 were from Baltimore. I heard the 2023 team cut 3 kids and 2 were from Baltimore. One was a set of brothers. Both the 2022 and 2023 brothers were asked to stay on the B team and turned down tryouts and offers from other team . None of the 4 cut Baltimore kids are playing anywhere. I guess they like holdbacks and out of state kids over Baltimore kids.


Nice try but you are so far off on this. Why would you make up lor spread lies like this? I don't like the Hawks one bit but I know all the Baltimore kids and their families on The 2022 and 2023 teams. The 2022 brother did get cut but he IS on another club and they are looking forward to their new challenge. Be is a talented and great kid and he will be fine. The dad said how the Hawks coach was making calls on his behalf to other teams including the team my son plays with. His brother DID NOT get cut from the 2023 team and is playing with them again this season unless something changed in the last few days. The other 2022 Baltimore kid DID NOT get cut by the Hawks. He is an outstanding player who loves lacrosse more than maybe any kid I know. He tried out for another club and accepted their offer. He was NOT cut. He was a valuable member of the Hawks for several years. His family was very active with the Hawks also. Never heard them say a bad word. He has many friends already on his new team. He is looming forward to his new team and upcoming season. The other Baltimore kid on the 2023 team did get cut. I don't know them as well as the others but he IS on another club..i think he was only with the Hawks for 1 season. He is a really good player that really knows how to play the game. He will be fine.

I have no idea what Hawks think about Baltimore players and don't really care but stop LYING about individual kids and families like this. You already have someone on this threaded questioning the talents of the kids and the character of their parents. Disgusting

Thank you to whoever wrote the above factual (and kind) words. My son is one of the former Hawks 2022 players being talked about here. I avoid this forum because it distresses me, but someone told me he was mentioned on here so I took a peek. I was dismayed to see so much misinformation. He and his buddies chose to go from Baltimore to Annapolis because they enjoyed the coaches and teammates. It was a good experience, but it came to an end as these things sometimes do. My son is excited about his new team and wishes nothing but the best for his former Hawks teammates. My husband and I feel the same way. Here's hoping all the kiddos have a safe and healthy school year. Julie Newman

you might be a hawk parent if...

you think "loading the dishwasher" means getting your wife drunk.
you ever cut your grass and found a car.
you own a home that is mobile and 5 cars that aren't.
your boat has not left the drive-way in 15 years.
your wife's job requires her to wear an orange vest.
you think "taking out the trash" means taking your in-laws to a movie.

You might be a hawk parent if...
you served in the military.
you serve thanksgiving dinner for hundreds of people at your church each year.
you drove an hour out of your way to pick up a teammate for practice because you knew they were going through hard times.
you cried because all the boys on the team wore pink ribbons on their helmet for a grandmother with cancer
you drove your kid to Annapolis very early one morning to run alongside his teammates in the race for wounded soldiers

Truth.

Hello everyone all these clubs charge the same amount of money with a +- ratio of $400. And if you are signing up for travel sports in 2017 you should be prepared to spend real money.

You must be a loser of a person who is trying to compensate for having a tiny ... if

You write complete garbage about Hawks due to your son getting cut from team
You think people that pay 15,000 plus for education cant afford a real home unlike your section 8 home
You wish that you had played lacrosse instead going home to your basement every day
You wish that you were in the military instead of playing with toy soldiers
You yell out every game " wheels" " hit him" " that is a penalty"
You tell anyone around you how much you know about lacrosse while they look on in disbelief
You wish your world didnt revolve around a lacrosse forum

Agree with this post on a well run clinic and I would anticipate it will be a good turn out this year at most age groups. Another interesting note on Hawks tryouts. They have had a rule for a while that coaches kids have to get evaluated and make the teams just like everyone else.

“Evaluators- Current coaches, Position Directors, and Independent Experienced Coaches. Fathers involved in the program cannot evaluate players in their own son's position.”

My guess is you weren't at NAL the weekend where they sent 4 teams to the best most competitive tournament so far this year. 4 in the championship with 1 winning it all. I would go ahead and start worrying about your own program, I think Matt knows what he's doing!

If you believe the part about Fathers involved in the program no evaluating (or hand picking) players then you probably think gullible isn't in the dictionary.

Hawks go bigtime corporate. Can they keep the system rolling at least for another year or two before all the coaches leave?
Meanwhile, True's corporate behind just puckered a little. They have decimated a number of rec programs. But when it comes to corporate lax, how do they compete against the Hawks and 3d?

Making money will become more important than running a measly club, therefore it’s the beginning of the end for Hawks.

I believe there is a lot of truth to that. Most big money clubs are so so

What is the benefit of this for Hawks? did they sell the brand that will now be franchised? How does this compete with 3d or be absorbed by them? Is it an insurance play, less capital outlay. Sorry Im one of the not so smart lax folks and am not sure what either gets out of this deal.91 franchises and other than Md they are absolutely terrible at every level. 3d the same, maube a good team or two but when we see them on the schedule its a W, True? same. How does selling your local business benefit either. Thanks!

No benefit to the players and families already here. If Hogan stays involved they will be fine but he’s clearly the glue. He’s great IMO but without him what’s the difference between them and True?

I guarantee they will be pushing for 2 teams at every age group unlike the past.

Hawks, Aloha, 3D also have tournaments. That's where the profit is. Hogan is in his 60s so he cashed out like we all would.

The Hawks were the obvious choice in MD to buy. They have a lock on AA county and have been relevant nationally for years. Is there a Baltimore club program that is relevant top to bottom anymore? Now I hear True and Predators have teams in Baltimore? Baltimore can support 2 to 3 good (good nationally) teams per age group per year tops. With the current dilution, parents are paying $2k/yr for what MYLA was providing 5 years ago for $90/yr. I hope the investment doesn’t ruin the Hawks program.

The quality is already slipping. No Hawks team is no 1 anymore. Hogan often used non taxed labor to get his work done. They'll just become another True with a mixed bag of quality.

I would still say that 28, 27, and 22 team are the best if not 2nd. 26 and 23 are both top 5. 25 and 24 are top 10. That’s pretty good for one program.

Sorry to burst your bubble. It is losing numbers. More Clubs than ever, but numbers are slowly going down, Dont expect the trend to stop, Clubs are expensive at youth level. Spin away.

Hawks isnt going anywhere! All of the teams in the org are in the top 20 according to US Lacrosse. Hogan will step away after the partnership is comfortable running Hogan Lax and Hawks. If anything I'd be scared now that one of the largest lax businesses just acquired a national powerhouse
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Annapolis Hawks - 08/23/21 06:16 PM
Hawks was not the club 3Step wanted to purchase. Hawks was the third club they tried to buy in the Balto metro area. Whether or not they suceed will depend on who they decide to run the program. Good luck this most likely will not turn out well.

All coaches names have been removed from the Annapolis Hawks website. Heard from one of the coaches they were told that the new company was going to re-evaluate all of them and make changes to coaching staff's across the board. This should be fun to watch, maybe hawks history of daddy ball will finally come to an end.

Weird, when you go on their site and click on coaches, it lists every head and assistant coach in the organization as well as a bio on each one.

Typical of any lax discussion in MD, what are we talking about? MD or nationwide? MD OF COURSE lol. Yes involvement/engagement in MD/NOVA has probably peaked with the 2025 class. 2026, 2028, and 2029 are all smaller groups of "club--interested" kids. As businesses, these 15-20 year old clubs have really two options, keep the brand going with a new generation of local leadership (which means you've mentored new management talent before now)........or you just sell out and take the money. Nobody (no one person) wants to run a youth sports business behind 15-20 years, I can't imagine. Entrepeneurs get bored.

However outside of Maryland the sport is exploding and I would think the market maturity (early/hot) is what it was here in MD in 2003-2005 (with the 2005-2009 grad classes). If you have a MD kid playing any younger than the 2028 or 2029 class, good luck with D1 recruitment. Your son will have to face squads coached by a new generation of MadLax-esque coaches coming out of Raleigh, Orlando, Dallas, Phoenix, etc.

By 2028/2029 there will be significantly more D1 programs than there are now. You are presuming the number of kids nationally goes up but the D1 programs will stay at current levels.
