Are the BLC 2027s really that good? Very impressive fall.. Will be interesting to see how many BLC girls stay with the club long-term

Conversely are the SW 27s that bad -- routinely getting blown out by clubs they normally blow out

Who did BLC beat in the fall? To me, they’ve been a very good team since 2019 NGLL.

I expect SW to improve over the next few seasons, had a late start compared to most of these teams.

Not sure what you mean by late start for SW. They went 0-6 in the fall and only 1 loss was by fewer than 9 goals. Can't see this ship righting without a massive roster turnover. Saw their 14-2 loss to pride at Chesapeake and Pride could have scored 20 if they wanted to.

BLC was 5-1 in the fall, only loss by 2 to M&D in a game that was close late and most wins were decisive.

I tend not to read much into 4th grade and below NGLL games since lots of good girls are still playing rec level.

When I say late start, I am referring to the 2027 SW team not playing in NGLL in 2019, then due to COVID, not having a 2020 NGLL. There's a learning curve. As you state, some kids may have been playing rec which means they didn't play at all in 2019-2020 season.

No doubt they need to add a few kids from other clubs to start to compete.

Who would you put in your top-5?

Mine would be

1) Hero's Green
2) M&D Black
3) BLC
4) NEMS
5) Pride

Top 3 def the same

I'd go

1) Hero Green
2) M&D Black
3) BLC
4) Pride
5) MD United
6) LBC// NEMS / Coppermine


no real differentiation between 5 and 8 in my mind. I actually think outside of Heros this year as a general rule is well behing where comparable teams were the last 3 years. not sure if it is covid or just a down year in general

I gotta give NEMS credit for beating MDU and M&D in NGLL.
Coppermine is interesting as I know they’ve lost a few key players so they are adjusting.

I think that's fair. I probably marked them down a bit for playing a bit of an easier schedule in general. I did discount their NGLL performance to my prior point, I dont really value 4th grade results since teams change so much.

Teams def change, but the dominant teams of the 2019 NGLL are still the dominant teams now, Hero's, M&D, BLC. All went 7-1. NEMS wasn't in the league then but they are going to be a force unless something changes.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2027 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 12/03/20 06:27 PM
Here's my Top-10 for 2027 Winter 2020

1) Hero's Green (only a few 2027 teams can even keep it close)
2) M&D Black (only a few 2027 teams can beat them)
3) BLC (will be interesting to see them this spring, as they could move up or down moreso than any team)
4) NEMS (they got a few very solid players)
5) MD United (outside of a few clubs, they played very well)
6) Pride Red (They seem to get better after each season)
7) Coppermine (I know they lost a few key pieces)
8) LBC (They are the best of the next tier)
9) Integrity (They got to beat Hero's White and LBC routinely to move up)
10) Hero's White (lots of improvement over the last year)

Monster and YJ would both be top 4. Both could probably give Heros a game, especially if it is officiated in more of a northern style (eg allowing more contact)

Had to say since they really haven’t played in over a year with MD teams, I admittedly don’t know enough.

Steps likely in top 4.
I’d assume YJ would be there as well given reputation of club.
Aces Elite played M&D tight in Fall 2019.

Has Monster played Aces and if so how close where those games? Will be nice come summer when some of the NJ NY teams can play MD area (hopefully)

I've noticed the same. I think last year's 6th graders was a significantly better class. In fact some clubs like Coppermine can't even fill a B team at this level.

I wouldn't say there's a correlation between A & B teams and talent in a given class. It speaks to participation I think, simply a quantity vs quality issue.
We simply do not know enough about this class to judge on the talent unless you are seeing a huge amount of games played under COVID restrictions.

What I can say is there seems to be a big gap from the top tier teams to the average teams in this age group.

For me, i think there has been a massive gap in the 2nd tier. When you see a team like Skywalkers, Coppermine or MD United who have girls on the roster who can't cradle correctly , dont keep stick in triple thread position and have poor off-hand skills, you know they had a talent gap at tryouts.

Even the first tier after Heros, while M&D and BLC have solid players, there are only 1 or 2 who you look at and say Wow, that girl will be great in 3 years.

Skywalkers is not in the same tier as Coppermine and MD United at the 2027 level. Night and Day difference. For whatever reason, Skywalkers is not at the level the club tends to be at, but I expect that to change over the next few seasons.

I will say that for the club I know, they did not cut any players over summer, because of COVID, they didn't feel the players got a fair shot, so yes, there are some at the bottom end who are not up to speed. I can tell you there are more than 1-2 players on M&D and BLC who are going to be great players. Even the Coppermine and MD United as you reference have some very talented girls.

Agree that many of the top clubs have well more than 1-2 great players. But I would also agree that overall roster depth is way down. Watching M and D play MD United I would say that a majority of the second string girls on both sides would likely be on a B team in past years.

There is more than a “Big 3 in the area”, but yes agree with change. There are some great teams at this age group in all areas.

Watch out for those players that work harder than others in the “off season”!

Where do the girls that play for M&D and Heros train and do clinics? I want to get my daughter around clinics with better players as there are not many in the DVM area.

I guess if the goal is to win as many tournaments as you can, then the Big 3, whatever those clubs end up being, is a great goal. If the goal is to learn the love of the game, play in HS at a high level, and onto college, there are many clubs in the state that will do that. Presently, there is Hero's, and everybody else. Other clubs will improve just by sharing a field with Hero's.

Well at this age it is about winning, and the "Big 3" have been winning and losing to each other over the last 2 years. I can see the BLC team falling apart at some point soon especially since they don't have a HS program. The question is where do the players go.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2027 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 01/28/21 07:35 PM
At 6th grade, its about "winning"? Not sure I agree. I would say its about winning once they get into HS.

Very few clubs had teams as 3rd graders, so the rest were playing catchup in 4th grade season. 5th grade season obviously had issues with COVID. I agree on BLC having issues in near future. You got to watch out for NEMS, who already beat M&D in the fall in NGLL.

Nems has to stop players from leaving to go to the white team at skywalkers. Parents need to understand why they are doing.

It will be interesting to see where girls land once a real season and shouts are held. M&D has some great players, but their roster is huge and if you are not in the starting lineup you don’t get much playing time.

Hero’s has 2 great lineups where any girl can start and hold her own. They only have one or two weak links, so I think it will be hard to get a place on that team unless you are a real rockstar.

NEMS had great showings this summer/fall. If they pick up a few more good girls they could be a real threat.

Skywalkers isn’t great right now, but they always end up getting much better as the girls get older and parents who are sick of the political bs move there.

No. 27s are definitely a B team for them. So they are in a bracket they can actually win a few games rather than get shellacked just to say they are in an 'A' bracket.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2027 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 03/12/21 12:34 AM
Skywalkers and FCA are definitely the bottom of A conference yet are in same division. A bit of an advantage for other teams in that division I’d say.

Fair point. though i'd argue that they are as good if not better than Skywalkers, FCA and Integrity. Actually outside Heros and NEMS, the blue group is quite weak
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2027 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 03/12/21 05:58 PM
interesting. my big thought is, does skywalkerls still have a white team (B team) at this level? not on schedule
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2027 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 03/12/21 07:38 PM
Spot on, though Integrity is def ahead of FCA, Skywalkers and HoCo. I would say HoCo could beat Skywalkers and maybe FCA.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2027 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 03/12/21 11:04 PM
At this age, confidence can be key. So I would rather be a bit more competitive with a shot to win the 'B' division than just get a few wins in 'A'. Use it as warm-up for summer then pop up to the 'A' division for next year's NGLL in 7th grade.

I think its clear the Red Division is the stronger top to bottom but Hero's Green is the team to beat overall.

Red Division W L

BLC 2027 Blue 7 1
M&D 27 Black 6 2
Maryland United 2027 4 4
Pride 2027 Red 4 4
Hero's 2027 white 2 6
LBC 27 2 6

Blue Division W L

Hero's 2027 green 8 0
NEMS 2027 7 1
Coppermine 2027 5 3
Integrity 2027 2 6
FCA 2027 1 7
Sky Walkers 27 Blue 0 8


Here's how I see it playing out. I may be a little too down on LBC and a little too high on NEMS, but with teams playing 3 games randomly against the other division, its pretty uneven in terms of strength of schedule.

Example, NEMS avoids both M&D and BLC which is huge benefit for them.

SW 27 have upgraded a bit and I think get to 2 maybe 3 wins. Don't see coppermine winning a single crossover game again red division. Could easily see FCA not willing a game

Maybe SW can beat FCA, I don't see another win. I guess it depends on the ability of the upgrades you referenced. Was it since indoor a month ago?

Coppermine can beat LBC and Hero's White. I expect them to, but I think it could be good games.

They are 6th graders and a lot will change year to year. Not sure how I found this page but thanks for the laughs. You all are real serious about this. Curious to look after the season to see how right you all are. At least I know where to go now to get in depth reviews on 6th graders. 😂

I watched HoCo at Spring BO. Admittedly against lower level comp, but I can't see them dropping a game in NGLL this year. In fact, Crush may be the only team to even give them a competitive game.

I think they are def better than SW, FCA and probably same level as Integrity. B level is prob a good move for their team confidence, but I think they are pretty much a lock to win B level.

I could see CCLax and Crush playing them tight.

I could see almost a C division out of the back end of that Conference.

M&D played most of the fall without key players, including my daughter. They are all back now. Expect us to beat BLC this week. And it wont be close.

I like the enthusiasm. M&D is a good team, real good.
BLC is very good as well.

I could see either team winning but I will be shocked if its more than a 5 goal game in either direction.

Lol. Most teams play down in the fall due to fall sports. M&D isn’t special in that regard.

They played before my daughter's game, BLC was a class ahead, looked like they played their whole team and still won by 5 or 6.... Will have to wait to see what the refs scored it.... Does anyone know what happened in the BLC second game?

My daughter did play. Her team just had a bad day, and BLC actually played particularly well. Hats off to them and especially their goalie who absolutely stood on her head. We will see them again. And the score will likely be reversed.

Dude..... you should’ve learned your lesson about making ridiculous comments about your M&D team after they lost to BLC. It’s great if your daughter is a strong player and it’s great that her M&D team is good but I wouldn’t make comments about how sure you are they’re going to win. Cause you look like a fool when they lose by 5.

BLC thrash M&D a couple of weeks ago as well, so this beating was not a surprise

Dad... I would worry about Heros and Pride at this point, if you loose 1 of those games your team may not may the playoffs, as pride and Heros don't play each other

Actually, at this point, I really do believe this is a BLC parent trying to get their team pumped up. Lol. Because it's hard to believe someone would write such a statement after their team got defeated.

Or they are giving their honest feelings about their team and child.
I think that most people who have known of BLC and the general quality of their teams are surprised. But to be fair this BLC team has been beating everyone for the last 2 years, and still has the same main players leading it.... They probably will be a top 2 team for the next 2 years, until they have to break up to find a HS team.

quick poll here.


which clubs didn't require a tryout for existing players for this season? I know several clubs did this as a result of Covid, thinking it wouldnt be fair to cut someone who barely got a chance to play.

We all had tryouts, didn't cut anyone, but added 3.

Those kids likely would have been better off getting cut as they won't play much.

NEMS 12-7, Integrity played hard and this should be encouraging for them.

Coppermine -8, Game was moved

Hero's -12
Hero's Green 14-5, MD United kept it respectable for a bit, def showed more than in Fall, Hero's will only improve over the spring.

BLC -4
BLC 7-3, nailed this, though I thought it would be higher scoring, M&D still the favorite for 2 seed in Red division.

BLC -7,
BLC 9-3 Pride Red is good but this game was similar to what I thought, BLC is going to get a shot at Hero's Green after the bye

Hero's -3, still awaiting score confirmation.

NEMS -16, still awaiting score confirmation.

I talked to one of the Pride players Moms before their game with BLC and she said they had about a third of the team out due to Spring Break. They would likely not have beaten BLC, but mentioning only because they would've covered more easily with some subs;)

You need to relax. Pretty sure kids sports haven’t been affected to this point and I seriously doubt they will going forward. If you’re worried, stay home.

Pretty sure kids sports haven’t been affected? Are you living under a rock? Had two soccer teams drop out last weekend, already positive cases on NGLL teams. Seriously where do you live where kids sports team aren’t affected?

NGLL Week 2

LBC vs BLC
BLC -8
BLC is the team to beat in Red division.

FCA Blue vs Hero's White
Hero's White -4
I've seen a lot of improvement from Hero's White since summer, they have a lot of size.

LBC vs Hero's White
LBC -2
This game could go either way, very important game for both teams.

Hero's Green vs BLC
Hero's Green -6
Likely playoff preview, top two teams in their division square off. If BLC gets hot, they can keep it close.

Skywalkers Blue vs M&D Black
M&D Black -11
I think M&D plays with a chip on their shoulder after their loss and look to make a statement

Hero's Green vs Integrity
Hero's Green -13
Hero's has an hour break after the BLC game here, I think they may be a little drained but the talent takes over here.

NEMS vs Coppermine
NEMS -7
They best player on the field is on NEMS and I think the game is under really in doubt here.

Integrity vs Coppermine
Coppermine -2
I think this is another game that could go either way here. Experience sides with Coppermine.

MD United vs LBC
MD United -4
LBC's third game of the weekend, and past performance favors MD United

I think he/she is just saying they hope the powers to be don’t cancel everything so quickly due to Covid. Didn’t say is worried about Covid. The point is valid... I am concerned too. Not about catching Covid but games being cancelled. My daughter had her lacrosse game and 4 soccer games canceled last weekend due to Covid on other teams and exposure. It may happen but here’s to hoping it does not. Some things are out of our control.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2027 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 03/31/21 06:39 PM
I'll take BLC +6 easy. Could see them winning outright. Maybe Coppermine + 7 as well. Parlay? Other lines look on point and could go either way. Hilarious whoever is coming up with these!

All I know is the guy predicted the exact spread in BLC's Game 1 and was off by one goal in game 2 so he knows something or he's very good at guessing, but yeah, its entertaining.

Coppermine to me, seems to be staying the same while others are getting better? I know they lost maybe their top player over summer to M&D.

Bingo. I don't think kids can catch it outdoors playing sports, but they define exposure as contact at games or practice, which to me, is not what CDC defines, therefore its a high likelihood one positive takes out multiple teams.

What? 😂 Maybe the Hero’s White team, but the Green team is on a roll. They just beat BLC, who M&D lost to. Green plays M&D next weekend, and while I am not cocky enough to say Heros will definitely win, odds are they will beat M&D. Their 2027 team is not as good as they were 3 years ago. Guess that is what happens when you rely on 3 players.

LBC's third game of the weekend, and past performance favors MD United

BLC-8
BLC 11-4
No real surprise here, LBC kept it from being a real blowout.

Hero's White -4
FCA 5-4
Upset here. FCA may be better than I thought and Hero's White not as good.

LBC-2
LBC 8-5
Big win for LBC over Hero's White.

Hero's Green -6
Hero's Green 7-5
BLC played them tough. BLC did have an earlier game as well, they are capable of winning NGLL but Hero's is still a machine.

M&D Black -11
M&B Black 12-1
Skywalkers Blue will get better, but they are well behind the top A teams.

Hero's Green -13
Hero's 14-5
Integrity got a moral victory on this one. I was expecting a bigger margin.

NEMS -7
NEMS 9-7
Coppermine wouldn't give up in this one and NEMS may be a little too top heavy to really blow most teams out.

Coppermine-2
Coppermine 7-5
Game played out similar to what I thought. Solid defense by both. Integrity is getting better.

MD United -4
LBC 6-5
Huge win for LBC who is very much alive in that dark horse conversation behind BLC for the 3-4 seed.

I've seen a lot of improvement from Hero's White since summer, they have a lot of size.

LBC vs Hero's White
LBC -2
This game could go either way, very important game for both teams.

Hero's Green vs BLC
Hero's Green -6
Likely playoff preview, top two teams in their division square off. If BLC gets hot, they can keep it close.

Skywalkers Blue vs M&D Black
M&D Black -11
I think M&D plays with a chip on their shoulder after their loss and look to make a statement

Hero's Green vs Integrity
Hero's Green -13
Hero's has an hour break after the BLC game here, I think they may be a little drained but the talent takes over here.

NEMS vs Coppermine
NEMS -7
They best player on the field is on NEMS and I think the game is under really in doubt here.

Integrity vs Coppermine
Coppermine -2
I think this is another game that could go either way here. Experience sides with Coppermine.

MD United vs LBC
MD United -4
LBC's third game of the weekend, and past performance favors MD United

BLC-8
BLC 11-4
No real surprise here, LBC kept it from being a real blowout.

Hero's White -4
FCA 5-4
Upset here. FCA may be better than I thought and Hero's White not as good.

LBC-2
LBC 8-5
Big win for LBC over Hero's White.

NGLL Week 3

NEMS 27 vs LBC 27
NEMS -5
LBC has held two straight teams under 6, although that won't happen against NEMS, I do expect a good showing.

MD United 27 vs Skywalkers Blue 27
MD United 27 -8
MDU needs to bounce back from a tough one goal loss to LBC, SW will gain experience needed this spring.

BLC Blue 27 vs Hero's White 27
BLC Blue -10
BLC is a very well rounded team and Hero's White is off to a slow start,

Coppermine 27 vs Skywalkers Blue 27
Coppermine -9
Coppermine has a very favorable schedule and I expect them to reel off 5 straight wins, this being the 2nd.

MD United 27 vs Pride Red 27
Pride Red -2
Big game for both clubs. I think this one will be tight. If the winner has more than 9 goals, I expect that Pride wins it.

Pride Red 27 vs LBC 27
Pride Red -3
Not only does Pride Red travel from NVA to Kent Island, but they must play an earlier game. Despite the favors for LBC, I think Pride comes out on top.

BLC Blue 27 vs Integrity 27
BLC -9
This may be a little high, as Integrity can control the draw in many cases. That being said, I think they have a tough time scoring and BLC runs a fast paced offense that can put up pts quick.

M&D Black 27 vs Hero's Green 27
Hero's Green -5
Always a fun one, Hero's hasn't clicked just yet. This will be physical but I don't think Hero's let's up on the gas.

For what its worth, I enjoy and look forward to your odds, and I look forward to Monday/Tuesday results.....please keep them coming.....and hey you are pretty good at this too.... whichis why you will have salty haters

For those who don't like them, use your free time somewhere else and leave people alone to do what they want as long as they are not hurting or offending anyone.

The only thing you got right is that Hero's hasn't clicked this year. We're finally healthy. Flip that spread. M&D will win by 5. Good luck to Hero's.

Parlay of the week:

Hero's White +10 - Think they will keep it closer than 10
Coppermine -9 - Skywalkers don't look too hot. Although Coppermine may ease up if up big. Think I'd still take "the mine"

NEMS vs LBC, You got two really good middies in this one. If NEMS can win the draws, I think that's where you see the NEMS victory over 5.
I like the goalies on these two teams as well, but NEMS may have the best middie in 2027 and she can get goalies out of their game quick.

M&D had a full contingent there, over 20 girls. So now M&D has 40+ girls on the team? What about 3 weeks prior when BLC blew M&D out at their own home made playday?

That coach is nuts for having 27 girls on a team. Make some cuts. No team is that deep.

You’d think they’d put together a Red team. heck they did because they had a roster out with both Black and Red but then they seemed to just more or less combine the two.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2027 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 04/16/21 03:20 PM
The reality is all the programs are gunning for M&D. We get every team's best. We are most team's "Super Bowl."
Knock us for anything you want. Our coaches decisions, our play, our roster size etc. But it's all sour grapes. You all would gladly welcome any of our girls on your team.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2027 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 04/16/21 04:15 PM
I personally like the Hero’s Green Team as the best of the 27’s. We have played against both and I think the are a better team. M&D is really good and physical but I am more impressed by Hero’s. These are 6th grade girls and too many girls is great for the best but the others may be better served by getting more game experience and reps.

Hero's has been the cream of the crop in 2027.
M&D is very good. Top-3.
Hero's is always our Super Bowl, in terms, of UGA looks at Alabama, as in, not likely to win but still a good team.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2027 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 04/16/21 05:34 PM
For the 2027's, I put Hero's Green, M&D, and BLC in the Top 3 (in no particular order). However, if I had to rank them now, it would be Hero's, BLC and then M&D. Not sure how you could rank them any other way given Hero's beat BLC and BLC beat M&D. If M&D beats Hero's, then I would say It's just a matter of who comes out on fire when they play each other. All very good teams.

I feel like this is very accurate.

I think all three can beat the other if things break right for them. So much talent on those rosters vs the other 2027 teams, but I will say this, other teams catching up slowly.

I'd love to know how those top-3 stack up nationally against the Long Island, Upstate teams.

This has to be a troll. I can’t believe any M&D dad would love in such a fantasy land that he believes this is true.

They had to. Too many that made the Red team ultimately chose other programs so there ended up not being enough for a Red team. Similar thing happened to 26s - all though that is a whole different can of worms at this club.

Ugh. Half your girls don’t play. It wasn’t your depth that won the game. You guys had a good game yesterday. We didn’t play all that great, so I would not say our best wasn’t good enough. All teams have off days.

Either way, it was a fun game to watch.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2027 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 04/19/21 05:43 PM
Anyone else feel like the refs have been really awful in the NGLL so far? Inconsistent calls. We had one ref tell our team that time outs are not allowed at any point.

We've had other refs argue with each other over calls.

Moving picks, which is my knowledge has always been illegal, seem not to be getting called, one ref told us that as long as the girl isn't leaning shoulder first, she can do a moving pick? Seems crazy and dangerous.

Moving picks are LEGAL, at least have been for quite a few years. This is explicitly stated in the rule book and they use examples.

This is not basketball; however, we have many basketball refs that have incorrectly called it.

While I won't argue that refs can be a little rough, it's usually wise to know the rules yourself before calling out the officials for it. Moving picks have always been legal in girls lacrosse. Only blind side picks are illegal.

Kinda the point of why I asked. Guess I need to educate our coaches too.

Yes, refs have been bad, inconsistent, arguing with themselves. etc.

Anyone have a link to full rules used by NGLL?

MD United 27 vs Pride Red 27
Pride Red -2
Big game for both clubs. I think this one will be tight. If the winner has more than 9 goals, I expect that Pride wins it.

Pride Red 27 vs LBC 27
Pride Red -3
Not only does Pride Red travel from NVA to Kent Island, but they must play an earlier game. Despite the favors for LBC, I think Pride comes out on top.

BLC Blue 27 vs Integrity 27
BLC -9
This may be a little high, as Integrity can control the draw in many cases. That being said, I think they have a tough time scoring and BLC runs a fast paced offense that can put up pts quick.

M&D Black 27 vs Hero's Green 27
Hero's Green -5
Always a fun one, Hero's hasn't clicked just yet. This will be physical but I don't think Hero's let's up on the gas.

NEMS 27 vs LBC 27
NEMS -5
NEMS 27 8-6
LBC lost a tough one, but they keep improving, dark horse now in Red Division for that 2nd playoff spot.

MD United 27 vs Skywalkers Blue 27
MD United 27 -8
MD United 27 13-3
MD United got rolling, much needed win. Skywalkers won't worry about standings.

BLC Blue 27 vs Hero's White 27
BLC Blue -10
BLC Blue 27 17-4
Combine great goalie play with aggressive middies and you get this result

Coppermine 27 vs Skywalkers Blue 27
Coppermine -9
Result TBD

MD United 27 vs Pride Red 27
Pride Red -2
Tie 8-8
" If the winner has more than 9 goals, I expect that Pride wins it" Lacrosse is a game of runs, evidently this game had several. Two evenly matched teams. 9 goals woulda won it.

Pride Red 27 vs LBC 27
Pride Red -3
LBC 9-4
LBC took advantage of Pride playing a tough game earlier in morning, but give LBC credit, they have size and skill on offense.

BLC Blue 27 vs Integrity 27
BLC -9
BLC Blue 27 11-2
BLC by 9, that was clear as day.

M&D Black 27 vs Hero's Green 27
Hero's Green -5
M&D 9-7
I admit I did not see this one coming, M&D we know is talented. Things went their way and they pushed through. We will see this matchup again in the playoffs, bank on it.

Who makes the schedule? We are about 1/2 way through the season and BLC only 2 games left (played 6) . they have a break from 4/18 to 5/8 that is ridiculous in a season. That means they were either pushed to be tired for second games (i.e. lost to heros) or a intentional break to try to get them to loose their stride (or refresh). Coppermine and SW have played 2 games.

Lucky for them the payoffs are set.

OR... maybe it is just a quirk in the scheduling of a league that has many divisions and many teams in a year where fields are not readily available due to COVID! Be grateful they are playing.

NGLL Week 4

Hero's White 27 vs Pride Red 27
Pride Red 27 -4

Pride has a lot of size, but Hero's White does too. I think Pride is a bit more polished on the offensive end and I think that is the difference here.


FCA 27 vs M&D Black 27
M&D Black 27 -9

M&D coming off a huge victory, I think they keep the great play going. FCA will have to play all 46 min for this game to stay single digits.

Coppermine 27 vs LBC 27
Coppermine -2

Coppermine kept it within 2 goals of NEMS (as did LBC) but Integrity kept it within 2 goals of Coppermine. This tells me these teams are not too far apart. I give the nod to Coppermine but LBC very well could win this by 2-3.

Hey, here’s a thought, maybe cut the league some slack this season and be grateful your daughters are getting one. NGLL has to work around every athletic program in the MD/DC/VA area who are attempting to squeeze fall sports into spring seasons along with spring sports also in play. Field space is a nightmare. Stop griping about it because I doubt your kid is.

Agreed, they get a pass for this season, typically its only nice turf fields at private schools. I suspect not spring it will be back to SPSG, Garrison Forest, etc. Doesn't help they deal with Spring Break right as season starts with many clubs requesting byes that weekend or late games.

Here's a thought, for what they charge to participate in the league, they should be better organized. It took 3 weeks for scores to finally be posted in a timely manner.

Exactly this - it would be one thing if this was year 1 or year 2. But it's not. They could do a much better job at scheduling based on club's home bases. However, they truly don't care as long as they get your money.

Hero's White 27 vs Pride Red 27
Pride Red 27 -4

White 10-9
What a time to get their first win. I was pretty sure Pride would win this one, but give White credit. 8am game for North VA kids in Springdale Prep didn't help their cause.

FCA 27 vs M&D Black 27
M&D Black 27 -9
M&D 15-2
Not a real shock here. M&D is on a roll after Hero's win.

Coppermine 27 vs LBC 27
Coppermine -2
Coppermine 12-3
Coppermine really took it to LBC, no one seems to be a real contender to prevent BLC and M&D from getting into the playoffs out of the Red division.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2027 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 04/27/21 03:29 PM
Playoffs are going to be interesting. I assume they will be:

NEMS v BLC

M&D vs Heros

I don't think BLC looses to NEMS
M&D beat Heros, BLC beat M&D but lost to Heros in a close one

The Championship is going to be exciting, but I think BLC is in at this point.....
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2027 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 04/27/21 05:31 PM
BLC will beat NEMS by 5+.
M&D will beat Heros again. We always get their best effort so it might come down to the last few possessions. Burt I still think we win.
BLC is kinda overrated. Most of their offense runs through one player. In the Championship, our defense should be able to shut her down and use its depth to win the other matchups. I think M&D wins it all by 2 or 3.

If Hero’s can not throw the ball away and make more of their shots, Hero’s will easily beat M&D.

Hero’s top to bottom is the better team. I don’t see them losing again.

BLC is strong too but not on Heros level.

It was really these four teams all along and it’s played out like that.

NGLL Week 5

FCA 27 Integrity 27
Integrity 27 -2
Very important game for both teams to build some positive vibes heading into summer tourneys.

NEMS 27 Pride Red 27
NEMS -5
I think Pride is much better than the record, I think they have had some 9am and 8am! games 90 min away is not helping their cause.

Integrity 27 Skywalkers Blue 27
Integrity -8
I think its back to back Integrity wins here

Coppermine 27 Hero's White 27
Coppermine 27 -5
Coppermine made a statement last week, I think they keep it going

Skywalkers Blue 27 Hero's Green 27
Hero's Green 27 -16
Play the seniors, as they say.

LBC 27 M&D Black 27
M&D Black 27 -11
M&D continues to roll.

LBC 27 FCA 27
LBC 27 -3
Does LBC get back on track here? FCA would make a statement with a win here.

MD United 27 Hero's White 27
MD United 27 -4
White can be as physical as any team, can MDU handle it?

Get over yourself. Oh my God. Scores weren’t up in a timely manner for you and your panties are in a such a bunch. Maybe take them off so you are little less uptight. Do you scream out when you have stood in line too long at a store because they are understaffed because of a pandemic? TAKE A DEEP BREATH AND BE GLAD THEY ARE PLAYING!

Yeah, but good luck with that. Hero's has been turnover prone and shot poorly all year.

Integrity 11-3 Nailed it. score won for the house.

Coppermine 27 Hero's White 27

Skywalkers Blue 27 Hero's Green 27

Hero's Green 16-2 Honestly I thought Hero's would drop near 20 on them but maybe they did the right thing in the end.

LBC 27 M&D Black 27
M&D Black 27 -11
M&D Black 12-5 M&D didn't blow them out as I thought, LBC has some strong players that kept them in this.

LBC 27 FCA 27

LBC 14-3 Obviously LBC shook off the earlier loss and made FCA pay for it. Nice bounce back.

MD United 27 Hero's White 27

MD United 12-3 Game wasn't really in doubt, MDU offense got rolling and White couldn't stop it.

The Red Division looks to be locked with BLC and M&D. The Blue looks like NEMS is lock for the Playoffs as well. I would guess Hero’s is in the drivers seat as well but noticed that Coppermine is right behind them and play each other next week. Anyone familiar with either team and have any insight to whether Coppermine might upset Hero’s. Their last couple of games don’t seem that close. Either way it’s exciting to see two teams still playing for something while the other three spots seem locked up. All things considered it has been fun back on the sidelines cheering the girls on.

Coppermine will keep it close, but can't see them winning unless they win 75%+ draws. I'd guess a lower scoring 7-4 kinda game.

Coppermine is playing better than I thought in 2021, they only beat Integrity by 2 while Hero's beat them 14-5 so I think 7 pt difference is fair.

NGLL Week 6

Integrity 27 vs Pride Red 27
Integrity 27 -3
Pride is in a bit of a free fall, I expect Integrity to come out pumped after two straight wins

BLC 27 vs MD United 27
BLC 27 -7
BLC has a 1/3 chance of winning it all I would say, and they want the division.

Coppermine Black 27 vs FCA Blue 27
Coppermine Black 27 -13
FCA season high goals is 5, and Coppermine will hit double digits for a third straight game.

NEMS 27 vs Hero's Green 27
Hero's Green 27 -7
My gut tells me Hero's makes a statement in this critical game for 1st place.

M&D Black 27 vs MD United 27
M&D Black 27 -8
M&D is hitting their stride and they won't call off the dogs.

Skywalkers Blue 27 vs Pride Red 27
Pride Red 27 -9
Pride needs this game to get back on the right track and get some positivity back

no real differentiation between 5 and 8 in my mind. I actually think outside of Heros this year as a general rule is well behind where comparable teams were the last 3 years. not sure if it is covid or just a down year in general


I've noticed the same. I think last year's 6th graders was a significantly better class. In fact some clubs like Coppermine can't even fill a B team at this level.

I think this is proving to be false. Both NEMS and BLC 27s are at the top of any teams in that club. Hero's and M&D are as good as anyone.

I guess summer tournaments against non MD teams will really reveal where the 2027 teams stand but I would expect them to more than hold their own.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2027 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 05/05/21 10:40 PM
NEMS has had a super easy schedule. No hard teams so far. I expect Heros to be them and take first in the division.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2027 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 05/05/21 11:50 PM

Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2027 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 05/07/21 02:48 PM
BLC, M&D, and Hero's are all another level above everyone else including NEMS. Give credit to NEMS for likely filling that fourth spot, but they will get rolled easily.

Most definitely a gap, same as it was in 4th grade.

With yesterday in the books we now have to wait until next Saturday to see who the fourth and final playoff team will be. Will it be Hero’s (as I guess) or Coppermine? Either way it’s good to have a meaningful game the last week of the season. People have told me not to sleep on Coppermine because they have a really good team with a solid defense. Scores support that too. Hero’s is deep with some excellent attack players. Exciting. Waiting on the weekly write up and spreads before I place my bet this week. LOL

I think that BLC got caught with being off for too long due to the schedule, They have not played in 3 weeks, and its hard keeping up the intensity when you are not playing.

Hats off to MU, holding it that close to BLC and M&D in 1 weekend says they might be trouble in the summer...

I am also puzzled by Pride's sudden abilities, I wont say what I am thinking, but .................................................

M&D is hitting their stride and they won't call off the dogs.

Skywalkers Blue 27 vs Pride Red 27
Pride Red 27 -9
Pride needs this game to get back on the right track and get some positivity back

Integrity 27 vs Pride Red 27
Integrity 27 -3
Pride Red 13-0
I think there were some circumstances outside the control of both teams here, kudos to Pride, Integrity can look forward to summer tournaments

BLC 27 vs MD United 27
BLC 27 -7
BLC 5-4
Close game here, great defense by both teams, both squads played tough. BLC had a scare.

Coppermine Black 27 vs FCA Blue 27
Coppermine Black 27 -13
Coppermine Black 12-4
We will find out this weekend if Coppermine are legit or not.

NEMS 27 vs Hero's Green 27
Hero's Green 27 -7
Hero's Green 27 8-3
NEMS hung in there but Hero's too much, as I assumed.

M&D Black 27 vs MD United 27
M&D Black 27 -8
M&D Black 11-7
Another good showing by MDU here, M&D gearing up for playoffs.


Skywalkers Blue 27 vs Pride Red 27
Pride Red 27 -9
Pride Red 12-4
Went exactly as I though. Pride got its first two wins this weekend with M&D on the horizon.


MY observations, lots of the middle of the pack teams are getting better. The gap may be shrinking some, but its still the Big Three (Hero's M&D and BLC).

NGLL Week 7

Coppermine 27 vs Hero's Green 27
Hero's -5
Its the game to show if Coppermine is legit or not.

M&D Black 27 vs Hero's White 27
M&D -8
M&D loves beating Hero's regardless of Green or White

NEMS 27 vs Skywalkers Blue 27
NEMS -11
Skywalkers has a way to go, NEMS will take it to them.

BLC Blue 27 vs Coppermine 27
BLC -4
BLC should take it to them but can BLC be consistent?

FCA 27 vs Skywalkers Blue 27
FCA -5
Nobody wants to finish in last place, both teams will play to avoid that

FCA 27 vs Hero's Green 27
Hero's -12
This one could get ugly

Pride Red 27 vs M&D Black 27
M&D -8
Pride will try to keep it close. M&D can score in bunches.

NEMS 27 vs MD United 27
NEMS -3
MDU will need to win the draw to keep this game close

How did the games go today?
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2027 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 05/17/21 11:56 AM
One thing I've noticed this season is how big/tall some of these girls are? It's possible some have hit their growth spurts in 6th grade but I can't help thinking some of these girls look like they are almost ready for high school?? Have parents re-classified their "6th grade" girls already???

I noticed that too, some very tall kids out there, even the teams that didn’t perform great still have size.

Not sure what you mean by late start for SW. They went 0-6 in the fall and only 1 loss was by fewer than 9 goals. Can't see this ship righting without a massive roster turnover. Saw their 14-2 loss to pride at Chesapeake and Pride could have scored 20 if they wanted to.

BLC was 5-1 in the fall, only loss by 2 to M&D in a game that was close late and most wins were decisive.

I tend not to read much into 4th grade and below NGLL games since lots of good girls are still playing rec level.

When I say late start, I am referring to the 2027 SW team not playing in NGLL in 2019, then due to COVID, not having a 2020 NGLL. There's a learning curve. As you state, some kids may have been playing rec which means they didn't play at all in 2019-2020 season.

No doubt they need to add a few kids from other clubs to start to compete.

Who would you put in your top-5?

Mine would be

1) Hero's Green
2) M&D Black
3) BLC
4) NEMS
5) Pride


Top 3 def the same

I'd go

1) Hero Green
2) M&D Black
3) BLC
4) Pride
5) MD United
6) LBC// NEMS / Coppermine


no real differentiation between 5 and 8 in my mind. I actually think outside of Heros this year as a general rule is well behing where comparable teams were the last 3 years. not sure if it is covid or just a down year in general


After NGLL regulation season, its clear Pride was a dissapointment.

NEMS obviously is in that four spot.
Coppermine could argue for fifth.
MD United and LBC are right there behind, and I wouldn't be shocked if they knocked off Coppermine head to head.

One could argue MDU is ahead of Coppermine, given they beat NEMS, but both lost by only 1 to BLC.
LBC actually beat MDU by 1, but got crushed by Coppermine.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2027 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 05/17/21 09:38 PM
This is why you play the game to determine the winner. As said... any given day. Now clearly Hero’s, M&D and BLC are ahead to the pack but I would sleep on LBC. Coppermine, NEMS or MD United.

Pretty much as expected. Tough matchups for Coppermine in last weekend.

M&D Black 27 vs Hero's White 27
M&D -8
M&D 11-5.
A moral victory for White as I thought this could have been much worse.

NEMS 27 vs Skywalkers Blue 27
NEMS -11
NEMS 12-4
Skywalkers took some lumps in NGLL A league.

BLC Blue 27 vs Coppermine 27
BLC -4
BLC 6-5.
Another tight game for BLC, doesn't seem like what you want for championship run.

FCA 27 vs Skywalkers Blue 27
FCA -5
FCA 8-3.
Hope you all placed your bets.

FCA 27 vs Hero's Green 27
Hero's -12
Hero's 15-2
Green ran a track meet in this one, next stop for them is M&D.

Pride Red 27 vs M&D Black 27
M&D -8
M&D 8-4
Good for Pride for keeping this one respectable. Gives them something to build on.

NEMS 27 vs MD United 27
NEMS -3
MD United 5-3
Not the way NEMS wants to head into the playoffs, but this game doesn't matter.

FYI- The surprising scores from last week don't tell the whole story. Not to say they girls didn't give their full effort while playing, but some of the teams that had already clinched the playoffs rested starters, tried some new combos out there, and played last week more as a scrimmage.

Want a cookie? Who cares. Glad you felt the need to justify why some girls didn’t do as well as others. I bet some didn’t care because they already got scholarship offers from UNC, UMD, BC and others too? Let the girls play the game and be happy with their performance whether they win or not. They are 11 and 12 years old. Stop living through them and let them enjoy the time playing.

The only score that was surprising would have been BLC just beating Coppermine. I doubt BLC used it as a scrimmage because a loss or tie would have had them playing our Hero’s. Coppermine actually plays a great defensive game that matches up well against BLC’s style of play. That game honestly didn’t surprise me. What else was surprising? The rest weren’t close. Best of luck to everyone this weekend.

NGLL Playoffs

Hero's Green 27 vs M&D Black 27
Hero's -2
M&D beat them earlier in the season but I thought things went just right for them to get that win. Its going to be close, but I think Hero's pulls it out.

BLC Blue 27 vs NEMS 27
BLC -3
I think BLC is the best all around team, but NEMS has the top player in the game. I think if its a low score, BLC wins this.

Championship
Hero's Green vs BLC Blue 27
Hero's Green -4
I think Hero's takes the NGLL, we will see, four good teams, no doubt.

The games today were amazing. The 4 teams are really the top 4. All 4 of them played for their lives, with the game getting away from Hero’s and Nems in the last 3 minutes of both games.

Congrats to the winners. The finals should be just as exciting.

It was not, basically BLC did not turn up, if you watched the game they looked tired and uninterested. There must be issues in that camp, as the coaches could not get them going....But if you look at their last few games they have not really showed up...
Good news is that we won and no one can blame the Refs

M&D made a statement this weekend, they are the top 2027 team. Hopefully the MD teams do well in June against the NY/NJ/PA squads.

1) M&D Black
2) Hero's Green
3) BLC
4) NEMS

Not sure who goes the next few spots, but Summer tournaments will sort them out between Coppermine, LBC, MD United. Obviously the out of state games will be big in terms of measuring the 2027 local group.

Try again. Made the team and opted to go elsewhere. And she doesn’t regret it one bit. Sometimes, there is more to the club experience than winning.

And, we don’t regret it either with some of the parents you have.

And HS won't matter once your in college, and college won't matter once you're in the real world. We get it. Let the middle school parents enjoy the NGLL, also, stick to the HS threads if you don't want to discuss middle school teams.

Thank you for the above and congratulations to all the local teams on this list. Is there another link as the one attached isn’t working for me. And does anyone know who are the number 4 and 5 teams?

Try this


https://www.USCL.com/rank?y=2020&alpha=N&v=2027

4) NXT is out of Philly area. They play BLC, Integrity and MDUnited this Saturday so we will know a lot more about them.

5) Madskillz, out of South Florida. Played M&D tight in the NGLL National playoffs.

Where are the Long Island teams? Yellow Jackets? Jesters? Seems they will make it to the top-10 very shortly.

Was wondering where the NY teams were as well. Hero’s plays YJ, CT Grizzlies, and Aces this weekend, so we should see how they stack up then.

Renegades 27. Show a little more class on your social media posts. Bragging about “dominating” 17-0 against a new team who only scored 9 goals all day. Your team has been there before and will likely be there again if you ever step up to a stronger division in a more challenging tournament. Obviously that team isn’t a rival, so hopefully you let of the gas a little like requiring a couple passes, no fast breaks, flipping your D to attack, or switching to non-dom hands.

Thought the same thing when I saw that. Act like you’ve been there before, obviously they haven’t.

Hero’s Green is clearly better than BLC despite who makes it to championship

They’ve clearly been on the side of being dominated as recently as March. Bet they weren’t bragging and taking pics of the scoreboard when dropping three games 2-8, 0-16, & 1-11.

Where are they posting about that "bragging" etc? Renegades is welcome to play those A teams, but they won't like the outcome.

Instagram account, with team gathered around the scoreboard to show how much they dominated another team, in a tournament that doesn't even have a championship, ie, where you play everyone and work on things, not try to win.

I think one thing we can conclude with M&D winning National NGLL and Hero's winning this tournament with all the big NY NJ clubs, MD A NGLL teams are some of the best nationally and playing in that during spring is big advantage for all teams.

You'd have to put Yellow Jackets there in top-4 Nationally, Aces Elite up there as well.

LBC with a great showing this weekend, beating both MDU and Coppermine. Maybe underrated.

That post is not a good look. Renegades isn't even playing in Live love lax this weekend, talk about an over inflated ego.

What does not playing in Live Love Lax have to do with anything? Over inflated ego? May not be a good look, but maybe the coaches were happy for the girls because they played well and that's why they won. Agreed that posting a pic of the score board was a little much, unfortunately there are a lot of parents out there that think destroying a team like that is worth bragging about.

It means they're opting for less competition. Not that they'd be put in an A bracket anyway, but the better teams tend to play in Live Love Lax.

Great, they can celebrate on their own and not post a scoreboard in their social media post from their team page (its not like it came from a coach or team parent). As said above, maybe they should play the A teams next time and see how that goes. There definitely won't be any postings though after those results. And not playing in Live love lax means you aren't stepping up to play the better teams out there.

The pic being discussed was put on the Renegades Lacrosse Club page, so it most certainly was posted by an adult. No child is running a clubs Instagram page just an FYI. Was it in bad taste, yes...but question is, why does this bother you so much? If your daughter doesn't play for them, why be so concerned/offended by it? Let them enjoy the win - it's not the worst thing that clubs have posted.

Posting a pic and saying they had a great day is one thing. Holding up the scoreboard showing 17-0 is an entire other thing. It's completely obnoxious. Nothing wrong with being proud of the girls, but show some class.

Sounds like a Renegades parent defending bad behavior. Of course the IG page isn't run by a child but it's posted on the Team's official IG page, no need for an FYI lol. It wasn't on some random parent's IG page. It should bother anyone with a daughter playing on any team, especially those younger, non established teams or developmental teams etc. Enjoy the win against a club's B team? I guess if that's how you think.....

They don’t go to more competitive tournaments because the Renegades and Rebels director owns Thinklax tournaments and those teams always have to go there. Not the big draw

Not always. But often. This weekend's thinkLax tournament had through high school but all Rebels and Renegades teams 24 and older were at live, love, lax. And other than 2025s, summer genesis (25s and older) and summer genesis origins (25s and younger) alternate weeks with lax for the cure. So the teams go there as well.

And when they go they never play A Level. Rengegades won most of the youth divisions, but never in the A group. They played in the A group for 26 level and went 0-4 with all games but one being a blow out.

Looks like MD teams really held their own against the NJ, NY PA teams.

BLC and Coppermine both had great weekends. NGLL A league is toughest competition in country, based on these results.

Seems that the typical power house teams of LI Top Guns, Monsters and CT Grizzles aren't strong in the 2027 age group.

Yellow Jackets, Aces Elite seem to be very good.

Lax for Cure is another big weekend of MD vs the world. I fully expect for MD to hold its own.

Aces Elite and Yellow Jackets A are the top NY teams I would say. M&D plays both.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2027 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 06/21/21 05:04 PM
What I learned from Cure. M&D is the clear #1 with Hero’s #2 and Maryland Lacrosse the best in the country. Aces and BLC are right behind both of them and hard to tell who is better since they didn’t play. Remember BLC only loss to M&D and Hero’s. After those 4 there is a big gap between the rest. Coppermine looked good the week before but obviously are not ready for this next level after this weekend. YJ, Monsters and Grizzlies are back there with Coppermine. Not sure why NEMS was not playing with the others but did help help their cause against MD United in the brackets. Speaking of MD United they are not there either.

How do you put the CT Grizzles anywhere with Yellow Jackets or Monsters for that matter?

Agree on Aces and BLC, but BLC has several one goal wins, including against NXT, Coppermine, MD United, NEMS.

What happened to Coppermine during Impulse Lax and Lax for Cure?
Are they not playing with a full team? They seemed great at Live Love Lax. Scores don't make sense.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2027 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 06/24/21 02:37 AM
Can’t say what happened as I don’t know much about Coppermine but 4 of those 5 losses were against the three best teams in the country- twice to M&D, Hero’s and BLC. They seem good just not at that top level yet. Curious what changes with all teams after tryouts. Does M&D go to two teams? Will some middle level teams pick up those 2 or 3 players that allow them to compete for the NGLL championship? Will Hero’s get better than they already are? We’ll see after tryouts and Mid-Atlantic.

Yeah, I get losing to top teams, but losing by that much? 16-4 loss to Hero's in a 44 min game. 15-4 to BLC? NGLL they lost 6-5 to BLC. So what happened? They must be down a few top players.

Tryouts are going to shake things up. There has to be girls on M&D and Hero's Green not happy with playing time. I'm going to assume Skywalkers will get much better.

There are a handful of Hero's White players who would play on a top-5 club team. Wonder if they realize that.

They also lost twice to Aces, and lost to M&D, Coppermine and MD United. They are a good team, but not at that top tier.

M&D has 25 girls on the roster. i wouldn't be surprised if cuts are made, or girls look elsewhere. Not enough time for girls at the end of the roster to play in tight games. COVID is probably the blame for a big roster. I would assume the coaches didn't want to cut any girls during a covid year.

Have you not looked at their other rosters? It's not just the 25's - even the 22's had 24 players

Yeah, I don't get why one would prefer to see a little playing time on a great team, vs a lot of PT on a good team. Those girls should be looking at Skywalkers honestly.

Why? Team is bad and they will just get moved to white after the mike and Molly private tryouts.

Id be looking at a very good, but shallower, NEMs team before I’d look at Skywalkers. But my guess is a few teams will benefit from M&D’s huge rosters.

Skywalkers is a great club, and obviously there is plenty of chances to play there. A few strong girls could really change that team.

NEMS, aren’t they up in Cecil County? Seems a rough ride for a Howard County kid.

Tryout season will be interesting around 2027 teams.

NEMS isn’t in Cecil. It’s in Harford. Right off the York/Baltimore corridor.
Just a few minutes east of I83. They feed the Harford and Baltimore County IAAM schools, mostly.

Where does Skywalkers practice? They need some major overhaul to compete against the top A clubs.

Remember M&D initially had two teams this year. The Red team quickly was eliminated once it was apparent it wouldn't be competitive. 4-5 girls from Red were moved to black. I expecte M&D to get back to traditional roster size next year.

Skywalkers practices at Friends School, Goucher College, and sometimes Bryn Mawr. I would take a look at the Skywalkers commitment page for the 20's and 21's. They are a legitimate organization. You can say all you want about the organization, but college coaches like their style of play. Their players go on to schools and make huge impacts on the teams in which they play.

M&D and SW are the dominant programs in Baltimore once the girls get to HS. SW 21,22,23,24 teams are all very good. Is there a program in Baltimore that makes inroads? Coppermine perhaps with their control over facilities?

If your daughter makes the M&D Black or Skywalkers Blue, that's great and they will most certainly get looked at by great schools. If they make their Red & White teams - be careful. They are treated completely different. Same goes for TLC Red & White.

It's not they get mistreated. They don't even put them in the same tournaments. The white will be sent to a "less" tournament.

Does anyone know anything about LTLC Legends for 27’s? Are they going to be just 27 or a combo with 26 like tryout invite I see on FB? Are they any good? Or will it be run like the soccer program by a select group of parents for the benefit of their kids? Is it even run by the same people as soccer because if so that answers anything I need to know? My daughter is currently playing for a lesser club that I can’t justify spending as much as we are based on what we are getting. Will Legends play in the same NGLL B League we played in this past season and will they play all the tournaments? Love any feedback from those with any knowledge of Legends.

My friend's daughter played on the 2029 Legends team. They were in the B division of the NGLL and played in some lesser known summer tournaments.

Seems they are right there in the mix with other B teams. I guess the 2027 will be new for 2021-2022?

They may want to rethink that. Several pride 25sleft for other clubs and who knows what the ripple effect will be. They dropped out of the mid Atlantic championships this weekend as a result.

To be fair, SW gets more offers for its B team than any other MD club.... if you look at 22 committments it isnt even close.

Sorry but no scouts are looking at sixth grade or anywhere close to it. That should not be a factor at this age. Loving the game and teammates is the top list of the day.

No but the longer you wait to get on a top club the harder it becomes. What you don’t want is to be on a bad club team come 9th grade.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2027 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 07/19/21 03:08 PM
Yes It's harder to get on a "top club."

But dont worry. I'm a college coach.

Play for your hs team and with friends on whatever club you want, for as long as possible.

Just send us a film- a highlight reel and a full game. HS OR club. Against the best competition you play.

Dont let some people scare you., people. Your team "level" has no real bearing on what myself, or my colleagues are looking for.

So you're saying you spend as much time on your summer recruiting circuit watching SW White, M&D Red, Heros White, YJ Gold, etc games as SW Blue, M&D Black, Heros Green, YJ Blue, etc games? I find that somewhat hard to believe.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2027 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 07/19/21 05:55 PM
Yes. I'd actually say I personally spend more time watching those B teams because I know what I'll be getting with A level teams from SW, M&D, NEMS, Heros etc.
Of course, I'm gonna recruit the girls from the A teams, but we all know who those girls are.
My GREAT recruiting classes are really built by landing a few of those and THEN finding those girls who have submitted letters of interests and studs from B teams that people are sleeping on. I'm not wasting a ton of my time chasing some player who is getting 20 other recruiting calls per week.

TLC has way better recruiting track record than a team like Coppermine. By high school, the best girls will be playing for the well established teams.

Have you looked at their 22 class? TLC doesn’t have the same record of recruiting like they use to have. Not even half the girls on red are recruited.

Based off the whole season....
1 M&D
2. Hero's
3. Aces
4. YJ
5. BLC
6. Madskilz

M&D had by far the best year. Hero's had a great year. Just slightly overshadowed by M&D. Aces is really good. Played a tough schedule and was in every single game they played. But didn't win any tournaments of note. YJ is really good and had a great Summer tournament. But didn't win any big tournaments. BLC is steady. Always does well but never wins any tournaments.

The top 4 are clearly better.

Madskilz was seen at NGLL nationals and played really well. Just not enough games against the mid-atlantic (where YJ and Aces play as well)

Agreed. Not sure you can put Aces and YJ over M&D and Heros based off one tournament where half of the games got cancelled.

It is correct that the 2022 commitments aren’t as strong as some prior years but they are also not finished yet. So far they have 16 girls committed between red and white, how many does Coppermine have?

Sorry, lost the quote. This is in reference to TLC, and prior post that less than half the red 22 team was committed is incorrect.

Probably a fool's errand to compare 2022 commitments to anything else. Because of Covid the 22s weren't seen live for most the year leading up to 9/1. Add that to smaller classes to do current college students having an extra year and the numbers have changed.

Because people like you are shortsighted and think any of these games and results matter at all. Looking forward and seeing how the older girls on your club are being recruited is what everyone should be doing.

Coppermine 2022 team has quite a few talented players and multiple commitments. Furthermore, who is anyone to judge what is considered an impressive commitment there are many factors weighing on decision. I'd rather play on a top D3 team than warm a D1 bench as a practice dummy. Every athlete is different and it's the parent's ego that interferes.

The difference between TLC & Coppermine is that TLC has 2 teams for 22's - a total of 16 girls are committed out of the 2 teams, so yes it is less then half committed.
Coppermine, even though not "new", they don't have the recruiting history that TLC has. TLC recruiting is not what it used to be and that is a fact.
There are 9 girls committed at Coppermine 22 class, I believe that is more then previous years and every year their recruiting will get better and better. Coppermine is getting bigger and TLC is not.

Of course this is true. But the top clubs have relationships with a lot more programs and have a history of placing girls in them. The college coaches trust those clubs when they ask for their input. Being on a club that has no history of getting their girls recruited is a huge risk. Not to mention that by the time the girls get to HS a lot of them will move to the big 3 and your team that used to play in A brackets will now play in B brackets. This not only hurts your daughter in terms of exposure but it really hurts her in terms of development as she is no longer playing against and practicing against top competition. Running isos and being able to just run through a bad team and score goals isn't helping her at all.

OK - so the big three - meaning skywalkers, M&D and Hero's have 60 some spots between the three for their A teams. So does that mean only 60 some girls from the Baltimore area in each graduation year should be able to play college lacrosse ? If the big three B teams don't get many girls recruited and other less established clubs don't get girls recruited as people keep saying on here, what do the girls do who are not on black, green, or blue ?? What is your suggestion for them ? Everyone's suggestion is to get on one of these three teams but there's only 66 spots. So Tell me what should all of the other girls who want to play and some who are actually stronger players than girls on those teams do ? I've been hearing this for years now - but no one has a suggestion for the 200 girls around Baltimore who are not on those three teams.

I would like a serious answer to this question.

This is not true. Is it true that is if you play on M&D Black you will be seen by the top 20 D1 schools in the country yes does it mean you will get recruited no. A large portion of the girls who have committed recently have gotten little to no money and will never see the field. I have seen teams in the B Bracket have 20+ coaches on their sidelines. If your daughter is good enough to play at a top D1 school it won't matter what team she plays on. They probably get more exposure because they don't have to split time with 23 other players.

As someone who has been through the process multiple times and is going through with a 23 right now. A few things

1) You are right. There are girls from low A, high B teams who get recruited to D1 schools every year. its just harder. Also, more will be driven by performances at prospect days and camps then at tourney games.

2) You need to find someone who can be realistic with you about the level of lacrosse your daughter should aspire to. The only girls who I see that get no offers are ones who targeted high D-1 when they were really low D-1, high D-3 prospects. Better clubs have reputations and relationships and can get you honest answers

3) Recruiting starts well before junior year. The biggest advantage of big clubs is that they can get honest feedback on girls in their freshman years. Recruiting pipelines aren't what they once were. (SW to Duke may be the exception).

4) When you pick a team focus on quality of coaching and competition in practice more than anything else. Ultimately girls have to win scholarships on the field. The advantage of Big 3 teams is they get more eyes, but you need to perform when you get these eyes.

5) This advice is specific to greater Baltimore and to a lesser extent DC. If you are in a non-core lacrosse market, recruiting is a different beast altogether.

That's good to hear. I'm so tired of hearing you have to be on one of these three teams

No one is saying you "have to be" on one of those 3 clubs. The truth is though that it is certainly advantageous to be. Obviously not everyone can get one of those 65-75 spots. Not sure what you are saying isn't true in the post that was responded to. Certainly there are plenty of girls from clubs other than those 3 that get recruited. As another poster said, doing well at on campus prospect days at schools your daughter is interested in is the best avenue to take. My post that was called untrue was more about development. Practicing against better competition will make you better. Playing in A brackets against better competition will make you better. Playing on a club with no history of getting girls recruited is a risk. Playing for a top club that has longstanding relationships with college coaches is an advantage. Not sure which of those statements isn't true.

Yes there are girls on those 3 clubs "A" teams that go to D3 schools. But in both years that my kid's played those choices were made for academics, not because they didn't have D1 offers. No one is saying kids don't get recruited from other clubs but I don't think it's debatable that these 3 clubs have a long history of getting their kids recruited. I think a lot of these posts are in regards to a small group of players that are good enough to play on these teams but choose to stay where they are. It can come back to bite them. Sure they'll get recruited, but will they have as many options as they would have otherwise?

Great thread. The obvious answer is we need to start talking about the big 8 to10 clubs in the area. It would make these ridiculous tryouts so less stressful instead of trying to maneuver onto one of the big 3 you had 10 choices to choose from instead. Closer distance as well for parents to get kids to practice. We need a diffusion of talent from the big "3" out to 5 or 7 clubs to make them more competitive. Why not start at HoCo or TLC? Minutes available. Look with enough practice and instruction everyone is going to be able to catch and throw with both hands soon. What is going to be in short supply is meaningful minutes in games against good competition for your daughter, unless she is a starter on the big 3. What if it was the big 10 clubs? No more 15-1 games, but close games all the time? Would that not be better for all the players? Forget the clubs reputation let them worry about that. Do not get stuck 3rd string at the big 3.

I agree with this. There is a flip side to things. If your daughter is on a big 3 team and not playing that isn't really helping either. As another poster said there has to be a really honest understanding of what level your daughter is suited for.

TLC has between 20 and 30 commitments in 2021 and 2022. this can be easily verified on their web site. Coppermine does not have the same recruiting track record (I doubt more than 5 commitments a year for past three years,but happy to be proved wrong),’, does not get invited to tournaments like G8 and does not have local high school coaches coaching their team like the omore established clubs. The 2027 TLC red coach is not only the head coach at bryn Mawr, she also is an assistant coach for the national team and won 4 national championships while in college. We’ve been very happy with our TLC experience, parent of a high schooler.

There are 16 girls recruited for the 22 class (red & white combined) - verified on their website. Also, does your daughter want to go to the school she want's to go to, or is she going to let the Club make that decision for her (I've been told TLC does not give good advice when it comes to recruiting). I agree, Coppermine does not have the recruiting track record - there are 9 commitments for their 22 class (4 are D1). In my opinion, Coppermine will get better and better every year with recruiting because every year they are growing and growing.
Also in my opinion, you can not only rely on the Club to get your daughter recruited - it is 100% up to your daughter to get recruited.

How many of Coppermine’s 2022 recruits are d1? Their high schools teams are just not very good and are never in the top bracket.

TLC had 24 commitments in 2021, 29 in 2020, and 27 in 2019. We’ve already noted that this year is an outlier for all clubs and NESAC commitments, among others, still to come.

And yes, we have been happy with the recruiting support. We have a family member a few years older who went from TLC to Vanderbilt.

I didnt know that. Does she have a daughter on the 27s? Watched them go 0-4 at LaxisLife. They have 3-4 very strong players who could probably play on any A team in the state, but the rest of the team was average at best.

4 Coppermine are D1. What does their HS team have to do with Club? I guess the 23 commits for TLC will show if it was just a Fluke with the 22 class.

Back to the topic at hand. The 27s.
At some tryouts last night. I saw a few kids from different clubs.
Perhaps a mid major team may be able to challenge M&D for top cheddar if they consolidated forces...hmmm...
Will be interesting to see how it shakes out.

Having played in college at a D1 school, played at “Big 3”club and coached 27’s plus other ages it’s important to remember the girls. First they have to love the game. Out of 16 girls that played college at a D1 from my club only myself and maybe 5 others finished all for years still playing. Please don’t put the cart before the horse. Great to see parents excited for their girls futures but make sure you balance being ultra competitive with letting them have fun. Secondly there is no one fit for everyone. I played with girls from different clubs that weren’t all M&D, SW or Hero’s so all have an opportunity. Talk with your child, coaches and club directors to see which is the best fit for your family. Then teach the girls how to set goals and work hard to get to where they want and not seeing something less as failure. Their best should always be good enough for you. Best of luck to everyone.

Locally. M&D and Hero's Green are top dogs. Not even close

Bethesda 27"s are 2nd flight. But still really good

Pride and Md United have really good programs and are really well coached. They could be strong down the road.

After that, the Nems, Coppermine's and LBC's are decent.

After that in Maryland the competition drops off dramatically. If you really want to "join forces"...you better work in the middle tier. Because after that the cupboards are pretty bare

Next year, I expect BLC to drop to the 3rd tier based on roster loss and see Pride establish itself as the clear #3 with MDU and LBC not far behind.

Without a doubt, Pride has the most upside as a club at lower age groups.

Not to mention that by the time the girls get to HS a lot of them will move to the big 3 and your team that used to play in A brackets will now play in B brackets. This not only hurts your daughter in terms of exposure but it really hurts her in terms of development as she is no longer playing against and practicing against top competition. Running isos and being able to just run through a bad team and score goals isn't helping her at all.

OK - so the big three - meaning Skywalkers, M&D and Hero's have 60 some spots between the three for their A teams. So does that mean only 60 some girls from the Baltimore area in each graduation year should be able to play college lacrosse ? If the big three B teams don't get many girls recruited and other less established clubs don't get girls recruited as people keep saying on here, what do the girls do who are not on black, green, or blue ?? What is your suggestion for them ? Everyone's suggestion is to get on one of these three teams but there's only 66 spots. So Tell me what should all of the other girls who want to play and some who are actually stronger players than girls on those teams do ? I've been hearing this for years now - but no one has a suggestion for the 200 girls around Baltimore who are not on those three teams.

I would like a serious answer to this question.


As someone who has been through the process multiple times and is going through with a 23 right now. A few things

1) You are right. There are girls from low A, high B teams who get recruited to D1 schools every year. its just harder. Also, more will be driven by performances at prospect days and camps then at tourney games.

2) You need to find someone who can be realistic with you about the level of lacrosse your daughter should aspire to. The only girls who I see that get no offers are ones who targeted high D-1 when they were really low D-1, high D-3 prospects. Better clubs have reputations and relationships and can get you honest answers

3) Recruiting starts well before junior year. The biggest advantage of big clubs is that they can get honest feedback on girls in their freshman years. Recruiting pipelines aren't what they once were. (SW to Duke may be the exception).

4) When you pick a team focus on quality of coaching and competition in practice more than anything else. Ultimately girls have to win scholarships on the field. The advantage of Big 3 teams is they get more eyes, but you need to perform when you get these eyes.

5) This advice is specific to greater Baltimore and to a lesser extent DC. If you are in a non-core lacrosse market, recruiting is a different beast altogether.[/quote]

That is an interesting take on your # 5. The DMV is not considered a core lacrosse market? Obviously DMV isn't Long Island but it's also not Indiana.

Nems and LBC 2027's are much better than MDU. Nems and LBC were both competitive with top teams this summer. They are also both stronger than Pride. Agree that M&D probably up top with Hero's close behind. BLC seemed more competitive at NGLL than this summer.

NEMS LBC and MDU are pretty close together, none are better than the other. MDU beat NEMS in their last two meetings. LBC beat MDU in last two, but based on history of clubs, MDU will develop and pull away from both. Obviously talent coaching and recruiting will decide.

To clarify, Coppermine’s high school AGE teams do not play in the top bracket. Could you provide a link for Coppermine’s 22 (and prior year) high school commits? Thanks in advance.

Coppermine has an advantage early because they start club teams but the best girls drifters recruited to better clubs by high school. Conversely, TLC is at a disadvantage in middle school because they don’t have any club teams younger than 5th grade, but they gain kids and gel throughout middle.

I don't know why you are getting so bent out of shape. You can't compare the 2 Clubs. One has been around for a lot longer, but is evident that their recruiting was not up to par this year as in previous years. You can complain that it is COVID related or maybe it just wasn't their "best" team. Coppermine is growing, and I believe that every year their recruiting will step it up. There is so much involved with the recruiting - this is a 27 forum so how about enjoy your daughter playing and not get wrapped up in "the best" of everything. It's your daughters responsibility to get recruited, not the Club - she will be seen regardless if she play for the "best" or not.

Agreed here. Coppermine is a good club, least pre HS so either those kids on Coppermine leave for other clubs or they they mostly stay, either way the 2021 Coppermine 2027 team has good players.

Still waiting for the requested link to the list of Coppermine 2022 and 2021 recruits. Again, thanks in advance.
Why would you need a link, when anyone can do a search on their own?

Seriously? You seem to be giving very precise info and it isn’t on their website. It is unclear to me why you would not provide a link when asked politely. I would assume the club is proud of these commitments and would like to spread the news.

M&D, TLC and Heroes all have this info on their website under accomplishments, recognition, or similar title. Coppermine does not, but one poster claims to have this info for Coppermine but won’t provide a link. Unwillingness to share is makes it look like they are hiding something.

BLC only lost to Hero's Green and M&D this summer so what exactly do you mean?


Pride lost by 1 to LBC in summer.

Pride tied NEMS in summer

Sometimes I wonder if you all get confused on what grad year you are talking about or just don't bother to look at the scores.

No reason to provide link when it’s on their website (as well as Instagram), you just don’t want to look for some reason

Here is what I found to share with anyone that cares. Looks like a good amount for a newer but growing club.

I agree they will only get better though. Heard there were a lot of girls trying out for Coppermine 2027. Will be interesting to see who they get to accept an offer.

Tryouts are finishing up for a lot of clubs.

Very interested to see how teams shake out. I don't see much talent added to M&D Black.

Coppermine looked bad in several summer games, but real good in others? Can't figure them out.

When will Skywalkers and TLC become a factor at 2027?

Gonna guess that Coppermine's two best players are out the door. And cant' blame em given the inconsistency of this past year.

Probably sooner rather than later for both. TLC has a good core of 3 or 4 players, just needs to improve defense and goalkeeping. #18 would start at midfield for almost any 27 team around. They still delivered a few quality mid-tier wins, beating FCA twice, AIM and tying a top 20 NXT team.

SW probably has less to build around (rumor is they lost to their 28s in an intrasquad scrimmages) , but the name I'm sure will help them upgrade their talent.

Not sure why any parent would want to play for that 2027 Skywalkers coach. I have heard her berate her girls after a loss.

May need to narrow that down. They had 31 of them this year.

OR...

Sometimes kids need to hear the truth, when they don't play up to their potential or give lackadaisical effort. Glad some coaches are still holding kids accountable. God forbid a kid gets their feelings hurt after a tough loss! Poor baby!

I agree kids need to hear the truth but skywalkers berates and belittles their players. my daughter will never play for that program.

SW -they are awful! Even at all ages. They should not be allowed to talk to their players like that in public, as in shred indoor playing facilities (it happened)
Our team played them and their coach was gloating on the sidelines as the same two girls played go-to-goal the whole time. I can’t imagine the other attack or middies liked it either, esp since it was a big recruiting tourney. I just wanted to tell off that little man.

This is beyond telling kids the truth. I have no problem when that is done in the correct way. Screaming at your team and telling these 12 year girls they are an embarrassment to the Skywalkers program is not the right way.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2027 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 07/27/21 12:10 AM
The way they are playing, they are an embarrassment to a once good Skywalker program.
Guess you're not allowed to tell the truth to kids anymore.
The sad part is, the kids know they deserve the verbal dressing down.
But parents don't want their kid's feelings hurt. Parents are what is wrong with youth sports.
The kids need to take pride in what they are doing and execute. Or move along and try softball.
The coach knows what they are talking about. They see your kid in practice every day.

You may be fine with your kid being bullied. You probably treat your child like garbage at home too.

I am not. Tell the the truth, no problem. But do it tactfully. These are pre-teens. There is absolutely no use in talking to the girls like that. I would not stand for being talked to like that, and I won’t let me daughter be talked to like that either.

No, the helicopter parents who want to wrap their kids in bubble wrap are what's killing sports.

Parents know what is best for their kids- even if they've never played the sport or never watch practice ad see their kids giving lackluster effort most of the time.

"Don't hurt my kid's feelings! They are a precious gift!"

So many parents have created a generation of soft kids who expect their mom or dad to swoop in and talk to the coach or find their kid another team...if the going gets tough.

Perseverance. Toughness. Discipline. Loyalty. They are all unfortunately the exception, not the rule, in today's club sports world.

Agree. This is why we have all the club jumpers and parent jockeying for position each year at tryout time. The kids dont show any loyalty to the clubs because their parents answer is to just find a new Club with “better opportunities.”

Regarding SW 27, there is a difference between tough feedback and personal attacks. What I saw I Lax for the Cure after the SJ Select games, was clearly in the latter category.

Also, a complete failure by the club leadership for not moving their 27 blue out of A+ division and allow them to win some games and get some confidence.

The McLaughlin's have been doing this for years. This isn't new to this team. Every team to ever play for SW has been told they are an embarrassment to the program at some point over the years. Some people are ok with the verbal abuse thrown at their kids and some aren't. At least I think Mike stopped making all the girls give him a hug at the end of practice after he berated them for 90 minutes.

Remember loyalty goes both ways. When coaches tell kids, "play like that you wont be on the team next year", its no wonder parents and kids start to look around. Also, when club owners have mid-season tryouts for potential new tryouts, loyalty is pretty much gone.

Serious question, don’t you expect the club to take the best players?

If so, why wouldn’t you expect the player to pick the best club for themselves?

This is a 2 way street.

Exactly.
The kid owes it to themself to find the best fit. That kid will get cut if another kid comes in who is better.

Why should kids show loyalty to a club when the club has no loyalty to the kids? You think the moment a better player comes around a club won’t cut your kid?

So many parents have created a generation of soft kids who expect their mom or dad to swoop in and talk to the coach or find their kid another team...if the going gets tough.

Perseverance. Toughness. Discipline. Loyalty. They are all unfortunately the exception, not the rule, in today's club sports world.

There is a HUGE difference between telling kids what they are doing wrong, and degrading them. A coach can get the point across that the team needs to work harder/do better/etc without treating the girls on the team like person. If you can’t see the difference and are ok with a coach treating your kid like this, then I feel sorry for your kid. I can only imagine how you treat her in private.

100% truth! I'm sure not many will like hearing this but this is reality.

Agree. This is why we have all the club jumpers and parent jockeying for position each year at tryout time. The kids dont show any loyalty to the clubs because their parents answer is to just find a new Club with “better opportunities.”

Why should kids show loyalty to a club when the club has no loyalty to the kids? You think the moment a better player comes around a club won’t cut your kid?

Of course clubs will cut kids. Why shouldn't they, unless they are True? No sense in dealing with kids who don't want to work.

How many kids think that they are "club lacrosse material" when they are really rec-level?

How many kids play club lacrosse that never hit a wall? Never run in the offseason? Miss lacrosse practices for indoor soccer games? Think that every kid deserves equal playing time?

Those kids aren't club players. They are rec players who THINK they are club players.

Its the same thinking that "Everyone should have a college degree." College isn't for everyone.

Neither is club lacrosse. But we have lots of parents patting their kids on the head, maneuvering so their daughter doesn't have to realize they aren't cut out for club.

Skywalkers has stunk at the younger ages for the longest time. They don't get better until they have their secret tryouts and clinics and bring in 30 kids from out of state to play on their team. They also don't really develop talent. They wait for girls to move on from Copperine, NEMs, etc for the college recruiting years.

This is so on point ! The same parents gonna be ticked when others get calls from big time schools and then will blame the coach for not getting their kid to the top. Everyone sees the talent gap except the kids parent.

Of course there are bad coaches out there. Many of the people running the for-profit clubs are the dim-bulb players who are living in their past. What are they gonna be when they graduate from college? Run a lacrosse club!

If you don't run to stay in shape...you might be a rec player.
If you miss practices...you might be a rec player.
If you don't love to compete in drills...you might be a rec player.
If you take off plays or goof around in drills...you might be a rec player.
If a coach has to stop practice to explain things AGAIN because you were talking to a friend...you (and your friend) might be rec players.
If you complain about PT in the stands...you might be a rec parent.
If you think parents should talk to the coach instead of the player doing it for themselves...you might be a rec parent.

Agree, this comes from the top. SW coaches are just too notIntelligent to be able to coach without berating players, as are the McLauglins. The old man is senile and the daughter is just worried about getting to the head of the line at the buffet.

Among top tier teams, Pride probably did the best picking up 5 or 6 top players. M and D just added one but a very quality player.

Among next tier teams, TLC added some good talent too. Won’t compete at the top but would be in the middle of the A bracket if they choose too.

BLC lost a lot. A couple LBC to MDU swaps but prob won’t impact much

I know SW picked up a couple girls from B teams (HoCo, MCE). Can't see it making a difference. Not connected to the other programs.

We did it, so I can say positives was it was great playing with other MD club girls, after competing against them over the years. Fields and facility were top notch. Interaction with pro players was very neat.

Wish there was more teaching and coaching from skill perspective. A few hiccups with bad score updates in tourney app led to one team going to wrong field etc.

First year I think doing this, prob will be better next go round but every kid I spoke to really loved the camp.

FYI MD had two teams represented who ended up meeting in championship game out of five teams total.

Yes my daughter went. Echo some of the other comments. great facilities, but too many games and not enough coaching. coaches switched too much which meant they were coaching games when they didn't really know the girls.

Also 27s and 28s were put together which created some mismatches. Also a ton of down time and transition time.

Would prob go next year if it is close. (though one of the organizers said it would likely be in long island next year).

At least 5 starters and 2 rotational midfielders are gone. They got the 2 best girls from Next Level to replace, but still a big drop. I think they still have a few open spots too.

May be lucky to go 2-6 in NGLL next year.

Based on what I hear, should we expect BLC to fade a bit and Pride to gain some ground?

Still seems its going to be M&D and Hero's then a gap, though it sounds like Hero's may have gotten better over tryouts and M&D not so much?

Aces and Yellow Jackets seem to be cream of the NY teams.

Did NEMS gain any new players? LBC? MDU?

They didn’t. Not sure why there’s so much venom towards BLC 2027. The roster is the same sans one player who went to Heros Green. Most of the info above is false and misleading. Still a strong team.

Lutherville Legends is run by parents creating a team for their 26 girls that can’t make other clubs. The 27’s are just fill in players making the roster larger. For those asking about it I’d say stay away, The 26’s is run by the same people that coach LTSC soccer for their girls. Teach your girls to work harder rather than simply creating opportunities for them. Heard from a friend the LTRC parents that run it even got one of their daughters onto the Ridgely Middle School Team when she didn’t even go to school there or tryout for the team. It’s everything that is wrong with youth sports.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2027 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 08/01/21 02:11 AM
I think the top two teams this year will be M&D and Hero’s again. The next group will be tight. I understand Pride, MD United and Coppermine picked up some really good players. NEMS stayed pretty much the same so will be in the mix. Interesting to see the changes this Fall at tournaments. Hoping the gap closes between all of the teams but still the strongest league in the country.

Not entirely true. Coppermine did pick up a couple solid players. But we also lost our top 2 players from last year. Jury is still out. Hopefully a push.

I spoke with a friend who’s daughter is on Coppermine and it’s true one girl left for NEMS but was super excited about the four new girls they brought in. Stated they keep together a close group of girls and got better in a lacrosse sense too. So I would not worry about Coppermine and excited for them to give us a tough game.

My kid isn’t on Heros, but not sure why it’s a shock they got better given they added an M&D black and BLC player.

They are 12 year old girls, I think they will not hold a grudge because they played head to head a few times.

The BLC addition is going to make an impact for Heros.

Agreed. Most of these girls are friends with the girls on other teams. Even M&D and Heros girls talk off the field constantly. I don’t think being from a rival team will be a detriment at all.

All 3 of the new girls will be fine.

Agreed. My daughter’s favorite part about Camps is getting to play with girls from other teams. She also remains friends with the few girls that have left her team for other teams. My wife and I stress the importance of making friendships and life lessons learned through sports. The act of playing the sport could end at anytime for a variety of reasons but the lessons learned and friends can last a lifetime. Now that being said we teach our kids to always give 110% and be humble. We love this lacrosse community even though everyone has a different team they secretly like to beat. That’s just fun competition. Stay safe everyone and see you all in the Fall.

Well said.

I gotta say, I think 2027 (midatlantic) has an unusual amount of talent. Just a lot of great teams and great players, time will tell I suppose.
Looking forward to seeing them all take the next step in 2021-2022.

If all that seems to have happened is final, I assume the new rankings are:

1 Heros Green - Major pickups, swaps with M&D
2 M&D - Already a powerhouse - No major pickups
3 NEMs - A few strong additions vault them to top 3
4 MU - Always solid, will compete
5 BLC - Lost ground based on lost players and no significant additions
6 Coppermine - Remains slightly competitive, and better than the remaining teams
7+ The rest

Where did NEMS additions come from to vault them to top-3?
Can’t really argue with rest, but I hear Pride added some talent.

I think LBC is getting slept on a little bit. I am not sure they lost too much talent and they are solid. 3-6 is really interchangeable.

I agree LBC beat both Pride and MDU in the NGLL and the summer. They also lost to Hero's Green by one in a full game this summer and tied Yellow Jackets at Mid Atlantic. They ended up losing in overtime. Not sure if they lost any players during tryouts or if they got any new players. But they have earned a spot in the top five.

Is there a Coppermine parent that can explain their summer scores?

They beat YJ A team 6-5 in June, then lose to them 1-10 in July?

They beat LBC 12-3 in April then lose to them 5-7 in June?

Its like in NGLL and Live Lax Love they were very good, in Impulse, Lax for Cure, Midatlantic, a shell of that team.

I would assume injuries but the timeline doesn't really back that up.

I'm not sure where to put them to be honest, obviously they have some good players but you beat a 6-18-1 CT Grizzles team by 1 goal, its not saying much.

Focusing way too much on scores. There could be many reasons for the back and forth.

Scores tell a story, that is an extreme score diff. I don't think another team has had such up and down games against the same opponent.

I don't know why you think there would be any consistency at this age. At the end of the day, scores do not matter and you will eventually realize that College coaches in NO WAY look at a score of a game- they look at the player(s) in the game. THAT is whats important. NOT the score

It's not about 7th graders getting recruited. Since you think this was such a "worthless reply"....it's about REALIZING that EVENTUALLY scores DO NOT matter. Do you understand the reply now?

I am friends with many people whom daughters play at Coppermine. They have a lot of talented girls and great coaches. They can play as well as anyone or can lose badly to good teams. They do beat the teams they should beat though. Their summer loses had nothing to do with injuries but rather just poor execution on the field. They loss majority of the draws, attack was a little small & slow moving the ball and defense played majority of plays. I understand they only loss one midfielder to NEMS but picked up four very strong (stronger than they lost I heard but she was quick & aggressive) players that should really help them this year. Not sure it midfielders or attack though. I still think they will be behind Hero’s and M&D but I won’t sleep on them during any game. They should compete for 2nd in either Division they are in with NEMS, Pride, MDU, BLC or LBC. Honestly all the Mid-Atlantic NGLL teams are good. We have to remember they are all only 12/13 for the most part so a lot can change from year to year. Wouldn’t be surprised to she some girls start developing into better stronger players as they hit their growth spurts. Good luck to all this year. Hope this answers anyone’s questions in a friendly manner. Feel free to correct me if I was misinformed on anything I have been told.

I mean scores don't matter in regards to what? Coaches looking at recruits? Agree.
Do scores matter for rankings? Of course.
Do rankings matter to attract and retain talent? For most, yes.
Do scores and rankings matter to determine what tournaments you play in and what divisions you are seeded in? Of course.

Lets not pretend like teams that go 4-14 are able to get the same talent or have the same talent as the 16-4 teams.

Great reply, informative and not snarky at all.

Agree with the assessment that majority of NGLL A teams are good in their own right.

I do wonder where those 4 Coppermine additions come, I assume not REC, which means other clubs lost some talent.

Why not Rec????
You're all talking like these girls are semi-pro athletes.
Yes, there can be girls out there who aren't on club yet.

"very strong players", I'm not sure how you determine that if they have not played beyond rec level? Not to say that they can't be, just how would one know based on competition or lack there of?

When those top rec kids tryout and dominate during the club team tryouts, you know you've found a good one.
Quite possible. Saw it happen on the boys level with the 27s this year.

That is very RARE and probably unlikely at 7th grade, its more likely that someone moved from out of town. if there was a "very strong player" at Rec in 6th grade (especially after going through COVID) who came in and dominated a tryout, that says they went to a team at the lower end of the rankings. I can't see a rec player at this age coming in and dominating at a top 5 team's tryout. I would not refer to them as a "Very Strong Player", i would just call them a "good or capable player" ... i am calling BS

Totally agree. You'd need a kid who has never played club and only played 12 weeks of lacrosse (Rec) in 2 1/2 years (with COVID wiping out Rec 2020). How could a kid dominant? Maybe its a freak athlete that is busy with other sports and not lacrosse but is so above athletically they just dominant club players? If this is the case, your team won the lottery.

I mean rec players aren't hitting the bounce back in October, or playing indoor or doing any of the other things that these club players do year round.

We've had one non club kid make our team in three years, she is now one of our top players, but that was after two years of catching up.

Dp, but your ‘27 must be your oldest. You are talking about kids who have not yet completed puberty. Some current stars will fade, and some kids who are just picking up sticks for the first time in middle school will be stars. Athletic kids coming from other sports can get up to speed pretty quickly. Coaches are often better judges of athleticism and potential than parents.

There is a youth fall and winter indoor league at NERRC! And there are such things as backyards and street kids.
Great athletes are born, not made SuperDad! Not everyone is interested in shoving their kids into private training in seventh grade.

Maybe its a freak athlete that is busy with other sports and not lacrosse but is so above athletically they just dominant club players? If this is the case, your team won the lottery.

I mean rec players aren't hitting the bounce back in October, or playing indoor or doing any of the other things that these club players do year round.

We've had one non club kid make our team in three years, she is now one of our top players, but that was after two years of catching up.

You sound scared Dad. We’re coming for your daughters spot! Just watch!

Ok Rec dad that kid has yet to play a club game, I’m sure she’ll dominant because of your superior genes. How hard can lacrosse be right?

Had something like this happen last year but it was definitely not common. The girl had been playing up 2 years with her sister for the past few years on in rec. multi sport athlete. No one knew she existed because she was just an above average rec player at that age. When her dad moved her back to her class she was so used to playing with older girls that she was the best player out there. She played basketball and soccer too. Great stick. But likely the exception, not the rule.

Do you have any idea how many great players currently in College & beyond didn't start playing until High School? Way more then you would think. Why are parents looking at this as such a threat (at least that is how it comes across).

Looking at it as a threat? No. Looking at it logically, yes.

I agree, back, 10-20 years ago, plenty of kids picked up sticks for the first time in 7th, 8th grade and were D1 talents. I just don't see that happening in this current era.
Could it happen? Sure, its a rare exception.

Name a few current college players that never played until HS, its sure to be in the bio since its so rare.

I'd also add these kids today are so further along at this age, then in years past. Our club coach who was an All American states this all the time. Its great for the game, they are going to take it to new levels.

Totally Agree.... The days of picking up a stick in HS and playing in College at D1 or D3 are over, an exception might be in the boys case where there is a 6'5" super athletic defender (with a long pole) who is strong, but the likelihood is that the coach would add him to the team but not play him due to the lack of experience. Lax is very technical and not understanding slides alone will make it very hard to get on the field...

Sorry guys,,, This game is not a easy one, club players are putting in work, hours of wall ball, shooting, dodging, clinics etc. Very few Rec teams have coaches that going to be able to get the girls putting in that type of work. Yes there may be one kid whose parent (or sibling) played at a high level, but in all likelihood they would have her play Club if she were any good. But I don't see how a new to Lax or Rec player can come in now and dominate.

You are in for a harsh awakening. Half the kids that were stars back in sixth grade for my dd’s class 2023) are no longer playing or just ok. I have a family member currently playing D1 men’s lacrosse, and the kids recruited in middle school/freshman year high school (pre rule change)have mostly turned out to be busts at the college level.

Off the top of my head, there was a four year starter at Hopkins (just graduated this year) who didn’t pick up a stick until her freshman year at a Baltimore private. And no, this wasn’t in her bio because it isn’t particularly uncommon.

My own kids started club same time as everyone else, but you have to be delusional to think nothing changes between sixth grade and college.

Your points aren't going against our argument.

No one denies lots of kids get burned out from 6th to HS and quit, that's a reality.

Yes, kids who are stars as freshman/soph and highly recruited end up busts, that's a reality.

Yes, lots of things change.

The argument isn't that a new club player in 6th grade can't play in college, the argument is, a new club playing in 6th grade won't dominant in 6th grade. That's what I am saying.

M&D 27 Black 6 2
Maryland United 2027 4 4
Pride 2027 Red 4 4
Hero's 2027 white 2 6
LBC 27 2 6

Blue Division W L

Hero's 2027 green 8 0
NEMS 2027 7 1
Coppermine 2027 5 3
Integrity 2027 2 6
FCA 2027 1 7
Sky Walkers 27 Blue 0 8


Here's how I see it playing out. I may be a little too down on LBC and a little too high on NEMS, but with teams playing 3 games randomly against the other division, its pretty uneven in terms of strength of schedule.

Example, NEMS avoids both M&D and BLC which is huge benefit for them.


For the person who said there is no consistency in scoring at this age, look at the predictions before season with the actual standings.

Red division was exact, with only LBC needing to be moved up to 3rd (which they predicted they may have been low on)
Blue division standings exact.

To clarify Rec. vs other club kids- Coppermine picked up 2 top FCA girls that currently play soccer at Coppermine. Understand the 3rd came from M&D. The 4th I am not sure which club she played for but understand played up a year (26’s) and is now playing for her current graduation year. She is a good player as she played on my daughter’s AU team a few weeks back. The M&D girl is another really good pick up. So I have to agree with the original post that Coppermine should be better this year.
I would rank the 27’s in 2022 as noted below-
1- M&D (Red)
2- Hero’s(Green)
3- Pride
4- BLC
5- Coppermine
6- NEMS
7- MDU
8- LBC
9- bunch of possibilities

Thanks for clearing that up. I believe the one you refer to is from Redshirts 26. She is a solid player for sure.

I can see Pride getting ranked so high if its true they had good pickups, but seems BLC lost some talent. I can't argue with the top 8 though I think 5-8 could all beat or lose to one another. BLC, and how much they lost talent wise, will be interesting to see.

Also, Im sure you meant M&D Black at #1, not Red.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2027 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 08/23/21 08:09 PM
Sorry- meant M&D Black as #1. Honestly I do think any team within the Top 8 listed could beat any of the other teams. They are only 12 & 13 years old so there are many factors to consider when they play the games- confidence, mood, fatigue from other sports and just feeling it that day. The list is just if the all played each other where I think they would finish. These are all good teams that are well coached. I’m sure there will be many changes over the next 5 years. Personally just hope my daughter still loves it as much in 5 years as she does now because it makes her hard work fun. As a parent I enjoy the friendships she as made as well those my wife & I too have made. Looking forward to Fall Tournaments. Until then we have a lot of soccer to keep us busy. Fun thing is her getting to play soccer with girls she plays against in lacrosse.

I'd argue 3-8 (and maybe 9,10,11) could all beat each other on any given day. Would need lots of special things to happen for Heros or M&D's top team to lose again any of the others in a full 40-44 minute game.

The one team noone seems to be talking about is TLC. They had a bunch of strong pickups (combined with already having one of the best 3 or 4 players in this age group). While they won't challenge the top, I see them definitely competing in the 5-8 range by spring.

What about Skywakers? Did they pick anyone up? I think the BLC coach’s daughter may have switched to SW? That does not look good for BLC.

I’ve never seen TLC play. We’re they in NGLL? Who did they play in summer tournaments? Saying they have a top-4 player at 2027 age is quite interesting, is she middie?

Again, can’t pass judgment as I know nothing about them.

Just looked up TLC 27, ranked #41 currently, went 6-7-2, looks like their best win was a few close games vs FCA Blue.

I do wonder where the strong pickups came from? Current NGLL A clubs?

They could compete in NGLL B, but they will struggle in NGLL A, least in 2022. They likely will improve greatly over the next season but there is a learning curve against NGLL A teams.

Again, can’t pass judgment as I know nothing about them.

If you have seen TLC play, you will notice #18, daughter of the former national team and Georgetown coach. Could easily start at middie or attack for any club in MD at the 27 age group.

I don't know anything about who they may have picked up, but if it is 3 or 4 solid players, they can be competitive in the bottom half and A in NGLL. (definitely a step above Integrity, FCA, SW, Hero's White, potentially more).

The team was formed in early fall, so they didn't even get a full season tryout to acquire talent. I saw their beatdown of AIM at Crabcake, you know that they can play at that level. I expect them to be at the level of the older TLC teams sooner rather than later.

I think what is a clueless commentary is assuming they can hang in the NGLL A without playing a game against M&D, Hero's, Coppermine, Pride, LBC, MDU, NEMS, etc.
They lost to Renegades, HOCO Black, Check-Hers.

Again, where am I clueless?

I didn’t opine about how they would do at all. I will say TLC has been around a long time and their older teams are consistently far better than Coppermine, LBC, NEMS, etc. . ,both performance and college commitment wise

Watched TLC at a few summer tournaments and my daughter is friends with a few. They are a descent team but I would also say the parity between their top players and lesser players is huge. That being said I would not put them in the Top 8. They also loss one of their better girls to M&D. They will get better though soon. Just not right away. They’ll be back with SW and FCA.

That's fair but if we are talking about 2022 season, TLC 27 isn't there yet. BLC is traditionally a lower team, with no HS program, it may be that way soon, but they are a top-5 team nationally as of now. I have no doubt TLC will get better and better over the years.

BLC has/had 1 good team and it is the 2027s, that team is breaking apart and we can see why. I would not use them as a guide for anything. As you said BLC has 2 seasons of this team left (no HS program) and then the girls have to find a new team, and BLC as a program will go back to the B division

I do wonder where the strong pickups came from? Current NGLL A clubs?

They could compete in NGLL B, but they will struggle in NGLL A, least in 2022. They likely will improve greatly over the next season but there is a learning curve against NGLL A teams.

Wow, talk about clueless commentary. If you’ve never seen them play and no nothing about their current roster, maybe best to not opine.

I think what is a clueless commentary is assuming they can hang in the NGLL A without playing a game against M&D, Hero's, Coppermine, Pride, LBC, MDU, NEMS, etc.
They lost to Renegades, HOCO Black, Check-Hers.

Again, where am I clueless?

To put it in simple terms, BLC would crush TLC next season, despite the past history of TCL recruiting and HS teams vs what BLC was/is

TLC is likely going to be very good in a few years, its also going to be made up of a lot of girls who aren't on TLC today, that goes for Skywalkers as well.

One key thing that noone is talking about is that the number of A teams will nearly double this year vs. last.

HoCo, TLC, Stars, CC Lax and a few others (potentially redshirts) will play in the 7th grade A division. (Don't want to get this into a debate over whether they should. So going 500 in NGLL A is nowhere near as hard as it was last eyar

I assume you mean the gap between their top and bottom players is huge?

Also for those criticizing some of their losses, remember they had to have a field player in goal for two of their tourneys due to Covid.

I was not aware of that. Being that you only play 8 games, and sounds like maybe 16? teams? Some folks will certainly dodge bullets, even more so than last year.

Obviously pending a schedule, but Stars won't win more than 2 games in the A division.

There were 16 teams this year. TLC, Redshirts, Stars, Hoco, MC Elite all played a at the 26 level.

At the 25 level, add in 3d Maryland, CCLax,

TLC was a decent organization with many great players matriculating through, however they have seriously gone on a downhill skid. They play in obscure tournaments and hide behind a veil of semi-mediocrity. Not certain why, and this is not a “witch hunt”, but they are “B- or C level” at best.

TLC starts out well enough, they lose girls to SW and M&D though Hero’s and Elite are too geographically undesirable). There is nothing wrong with TLC but they do not put in the skills training that other clubs may do at that age. Once you get to high school, if you’re not working with an outside trainer you are not serious about club. You come to practice and you work on plays you don’t work on the draw, shooting etc. A true catalyst for moves to other clubs. Also they don’t like to cut people.

Since club teams have decimated rec leagues/teams there is a need for TLC and clubs like it

There needs to be places for the girls who want to play lax but don’t want to or can’t play at M&D to play

Stop bashing them. The most serious girls play at the big three but there needs to be places for other girls to play

No one is “bashing” it’s just in response to the poster who has them as a solid A division team, which clearly is inaccurate.

They are a B team along with 12 other clubs in area that help grow the game, which is the goal.

Again, things change, players develop, players get burned out, these rankings are not in stone, just for discussion

That's all true but it doesn't change the fact that for 2027, in the 21-22 season, newer clubs like Coppermine and lesser clubs like BLC would roll them.

At the high school level, TLC plays in the same bracket as the big three at Tournaments like G8, lax for the Cure, etc. . Same can not be said for teams like Coppermine, LBC, and NEMs which are not even invited to G8. Which is why girls who may be on these teams in 7th grade tend to move to clubs like TLC and Skywalkers by high school.

BLC is on the decline. They had an exodus because of lot of issues with coaches.

Did BLC lose their coach (and her daughter) and if so, where did they go to?

Looking at final 2027 rankings, FLG is ranked #9.

They went 18-2 which is impressive, but the only matchup of a top-10 team was two games against YJ A, losing 5-7 and 5-9.
Seems they are overrated at that ranking, but hopefully they get into more of the traditional tournaments and play more competition.

Does anyone know if the ranking for 2021-2022 build off these or do they start new based on fall, spring performance?

I believe they start new. Prelim rankings will be based off previous year, but once the season starts they are based on current year (I think).

No the coaches and their daughters are still there. I heard that 3 girls left, 1 is a player that was not expected to leave, which was a surprise to everyone. They will take a step back with her loss but not too far back. I think she ended up a M&D.

I know they lost one of their top players to Hero's Green, I think that is who you reference, as M&D didn't add any BLC players.

It will be interesting to see if they remain just under Hero's and M&D, and if not, who grabs that #3 in Mid Atlantic spot, seems Pride is frontrunner based on talk and new additions.

Toc is not competitive with the top 3 at higher levels. They are a second tier club. The can be in the top bracket but getting blasted by good teams won’t help them get recruited.

Right, sorry, meant to say former. I guess it's neither here nor there for now - just curious if this changes the outlook for TLC. Obviously not a TLC parent, but wouldn't mind seeing them succeed.

The people that stay on TLC are taking advantage of that vacuum or they don’t like the current team of SW or M&D, or there is nowhere else for them to go.

If we are talking 2027, then there's a lot of improvement to be had at the SW. If I am the 16th kid on M&D or Coppermine, I'd go to SW without hesitation.

You are right, I don't think they won a game this year, so I would say its better to start and get that experience than win a medal or T-shirt for watching the games
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2027 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 09/02/21 06:42 PM
Not sure I agree with the comment about leaving other better teams if I was the 16th girl. Most teams that are successful play most of their girls through their 17-20 girl roster. I’d agree if over 20 girls, you are on the bottom and not getting PT but in that case are you really going to get it elsewhere too. I’d keep my daughter playing up on a better team for a more competitive experience. Work to to be the best rather than leave for a lesser team to be the best. Plus you get better playing with better players. The lessons from sports our kids can learn are the true measurement of growth along with performance on the field. SW and TLC will get better but M&D, Hero’s and a few others will increase the gap still.

Disagree. The gap is larger at the younger ages when some kids have not mastered the ability to catch, throw and have the stick skills. As they get older, every kid learns to play the game. Just look at the scores from 2018-2019 with this age group then look at the score last spring summer.

ITs not about leaving a great club to be the top girl on an average club, its about getting valuable experience.PT is not even typically. You gotta get on the field, at the end of day. Go to where you can play and improve.

No one leaves m&d unless they are getting no playing time. Coppermine is a different story. The top players there will move on the a Skywalkers or TLC when they get closer to high school and realize that there is a big recruiting advantage at one of the older clubs. I’ve only one girl and seen it happen to Redshirts, C2, and Green Turtle, all of which had very strong middle school teams for her graduation year until their star players went elsewhere.

M&D rosters a ton of kids. Plenty of reasnn for the bottom half of that roster to look elsewhere. It's no fun sitting on the bench. A few of those Coppermine kids also moved to NEMS this year.

One Coppermine girl left for NEMS. But they picked up 4 really good new players. So not sure what you meant by a few? Plus times are changing so Coppermine will start to keep girls through HS. A few years ago girls left Coppermine after 6th grade and now they are staying and I heard they had a bunch tryout. NEMS got some girls that tried out for Coppermine and didn’t make Coppermine as did SW. They aren’t at the level of Hero’s or M&D yet but who really is? Good luck to everyone this year.

M&D 27's have 21 and 19 on their rosters. Doesn't seem like "a ton of kids." Both Hero's teams carry 20 each. SW has 21 and 18. Comparative to the other teams in the area that have posted rosters...

M&D Black had 25 before tryouts and splitting it up with a Red team. I think that is what they referred to.

20-22 is sweet spot, especially with multi sport athletes who could miss time.

Other than the Coppermine name, what relation will Coppermine North and Coppermine West have with Coppermine? Similar uniforms, etc?

Coppermine has yet to update rosters, still showing last year's. Obviously you are a Coppermine parent, so good luck to you guys as well. Always a solid team for our club.

I think its that Coppermine is trying to buy up or merge with smaller clubs to create many different "Coppermine" teams based on location in the same area.

Coppermine has only "merged" with Elite. Elite tried to merge years ago with Rip n Run (who then folded and all went to TLC White). So clearly, Coppermine is "merging" with a club that was already looking for a home for years. Coppermine is trying to build their name, they have the means to do it, so why not!

In addition to this merger, which resulted in Coppermine North, they also added Coppermine West and are holding supplemental tryouts this weekend to field as many teams as possible in all 3 locations. I'm guessing that's what they meant.

As PP said, though, they have the means, so why not?

Exactly. It's not a bad thing. Just know what you're getting. It doesn't always have to be about fielding elite teams. It's good business, really. The lower level teams help reduce costs for the upper tier teams. Kids of all levels still need a place to play.

Excited for the Fall Tournaments to start soon. Looking forward to see what impact TLC will make this year. Will Bethesda still be in the Top 3? Has NEMS made the roster changes to put them in the Top 3? Will Coppermine be able to complete with the Top 3 teams this year. Then curious to see MDU, Pride and SW.

Will get an initial sense of where TLC is after Fall Showcase where they get to play top 20 team in Southern zone in addition to FCA and Phantastix from Philly (who they lost to last year). I would expect them to at minimum go 3-1 with Southern Zone being a toss-up.

TLC best win was to #39 FCA and they tied NXT who was ranked 28?

Am I missing a game?

Unless your kid is on TLC, what’s the interest here? Did they add some nice players?

BLC is not going to be in the Top-3, someone is going to overtake them, not sure if its NEMS, Coppermine, Pride, but someone will.

Yes. TLC added some nice players to the roster this summer. They should be much improved this year.

Which club teams did they come over from? I guess historically, Coppermine and NEMS eventually make their way to TLC and Skywalkers?

IT will be interesting to see if that holds true with the younger group where both Coppermine and NEMS have had great success and young ages.

At this point, Pride is likely a step abover NEMS and Coppermine

Also remember this team was formed late Fall, didnt play NGLL and really got together in the summer. About half of last year's team is on their B team (white).

They also have probably one of the 5 or 6 best players (#18) at this age group in MD. If they could fill out their starting lineup, they could contend mid-table of A. They wont be close to Heros, M&D, Pride or NEMS. But they will compete will MDU, Integrity, and LBC.

You referring to a girl that was on Skywalkers last year?


Hero's and M&D are just in another tier of everyone else.
There really isn't much difference between LBC and NEMS or Pride and MDU.
LBC beat Pride
MDU beat NEMS
Pride tied MDU
Pride tied NEMS
LBC beat MDU

They are all really mixed in, and honestly, outside of Aces, Eaglestix, they can all hold their own against anyone else Nationally.

.

No. She played for TLC last year and scored about half of their goals and took nearly every draw. Her mother was the former youth national coach and Georgetown coach. She's one of those players who you can already tell will play very high D-1.

A bit surprised she came back, but as long as they have her, they will be competitive.

Petro couldn’t get hs freshmen recruiting right at Hopkins, but you can tell with 6th graders.

Wasn’t my post but you can 100% point out the top players who likely are high D1 players in 6th grade. We are only a few years removed from 8th graders getting informal offers after all.

Also TLC wasn’t really competitive against anyone inside top-25 last year with her, why would that change?

Never seen this girl play live but I can name three at M and D and one at hero’s and two at YJ who will play D1 college without a doubt if they choose to.

You can tell some girls just have “it”

Good luck to everyone as the scrimmages start this weekend and tournaments next weekend. No matter the banter we all have on here we all have one thing in common- we want our girls to enjoy lacrosse. Here’s to a healthy and enjoyable 21-22 season.

Yes, AT THIS POINT, when we have no info on what teams have added or seen anyone play.

We can also say that AT THIS POINT any of those teams are better than M&D too.

Based on this AM, Eagle stix definitely is.

In all seriousness, was good to see high-level lax today. Hard to make much of today other than Eagle Stix clearly doesn't take the Fall off. (Parent mentioned they've been practicing 3x a week since early September) Looks much more polished than any of the MD teams and the results showed. (Despite, imo being less talented than any of the MD teams they played.)

Other thing i took from the day-- if Renegades stay in B level , they are going to roll the competition this year. Very solid team.

Lol. Good for Renegades. If they are so "solid "...I'm sure Hero's and M&D would be happy to welcome them to actual decent lacrosse.

That's the problem, the massivegap between A and B. I'm sure renegades could probably beat FCA, SW and maybe Integrity. but after that there is a massive gap.

Hopefully the other Tournaments are better than the Prime Time Young Guns. The fields all of the top 27’s played on was way too small for these girls. It could not have been more than 60 yards goal to goal when it should be 90 yards. I understand trying to get as many fields as possible to maximize their profits but there were younger and much lesser talented teams playing over on the full size turf fields. Field size didn’t take away that M&D was still the best team out there.

Tourney App never updated the 2027s for Prime Time.

How did Coppermine and NEMS do? Anyone else do really good or bad unexpectly?

EagleStix had a statement weekend, gotta have them at #1 right now, with M&D then Hero's as top-3.

LBC and MD United also had good showings, maybe they are in the top-10 conversation?

YJ, BLC, Pride, NEMS, all there too.

FLG I never was impressed with their schedule in summer, not sure why they were ranked top-10. Heard their goalie left for YJ. be interesting to see how that plays out on the field.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2027 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 10/27/21 03:37 PM
M&D won out beating each team by at least 8 goals. YJ South lost to everyone. I heard NEMS and Coppermine tied with both having opportunities to win in the final minute. I know I saw NEMS really good players there but heard Coppermine was missing a new player that is a big players that may have made a difference. We’ll know more after Chesapeake.

I would say all of your information is accurate. EagleStix had a great weekend. Looked sharp. Aces.....who is really good..... had a rough weekend. They have a couple girls who are superior talents.

For Prime Time...M&D beat up everyone. But that was probably expected. If you were ranking nationally after one weekend (which is absurd...but hey, it's what we do)

1. EagleStix
2. M&D
3. Hero's
4. Aces (Just cant drop them lower. too good....although MD United beat them...maybe I am wrong about them being #4)
5. YJ Graz (just on reputation since they didn't play in Maryland this weekend)
6. MD United
7. Bethesda (again, on reputation...but always good)
8. LBC
9. Pride
10. Madskillz (Once again, reputation). But they were solid last year

Nems and Coppermine outside the top 10. FLG I believe was at Prime Time. But decided to play in a lower division I guess...Even though they were supposedly a top 10 team nationally.

4. Aces (Just cant drop them lower. too good....although MD United beat them...maybe I am wrong about them being #4)
5. YJ Graz (just on reputation since they didn't play in Maryland this weekend)
6. MD United
7. Bethesda (again, on reputation...but always good)
8. LBC
9. Pride
10. Madskillz (Once again, reputation). But they were solid last year

Nems and Coppermine outside the top 10. FLG I believe was at Prime Time. But decided to play in a lower division I guess...Even though they were supposedly a top 10 team nationally.

Well, let's be honest, we have a year's worth of data on these teams, so its a good baseline, even though obviously teams change and add/lose talent.

I can't argue with this list, though I gotta have BLC over YJ and MDU until they prove they fell off since last year, obviously they did lose a key player on offense.


Coppermine/NEMS/Pride/MDU/LBC are all right there together.

I will also go out on a limb and say Hero's improved more than M&D in offseason. We will see how this plays out.

I would say the above information looks accurate. Definitely the Top 5 and Bethesda. The remaining 5 Maryland teams are all interchangeable if you look at the results between them. MDU, NEMS, Pride, LBC and Coppermine. All have beat each other at different times. Interested in how teams look once they are playing to win since I know some are using this time to test girls at different positions or lines plus feeling out new additions to their teams. Don’t know much about FLG and their tournament isn’t posting results.

Pride beat FLG by a few. Agree NEMS, LBC, Pride, MD United and BLC are interchangeable. Not sure about Coppermine in that group.

I understand trying to get as many fields as possible to maximize their profits but there were younger and much lesser talented teams playing over on the full size turf fields. Field size didn’t take away that M&D was still the best team out there.

Tourney App never updated the 2027s for Prime Time.

How did Coppermine and NEMS do? Anyone else do really good or bad unexpectly?

EagleStix had a statement weekend, gotta have them at #1 right now, with M&D then Hero's as top-3.

LBC and MD United also had good showings, maybe they are in the top-10 conversation?

YJ, BLC, Pride, NEMS, all there too.

FLG I never was impressed with their schedule in summer, not sure why they were ranked top-10. Heard their goalie left for YJ. be interesting to see how that plays out on the field.


I would say all of your information is accurate. EagleStix had a great weekend. Looked sharp. Aces.....who is really good..... had a rough weekend. They have a couple girls who are superior talents.

For Prime Time...M&D beat up everyone. But that was probably expected. If you were ranking nationally after one weekend (which is absurd...but hey, it's what we do)

1. EagleStix
2. M&D
3. Hero's
4. Aces (Just cant drop them lower. too good....although MD United beat them...maybe I am wrong about them being #4)
5. YJ Graz (just on reputation since they didn't play in Maryland this weekend)
6. MD United
7. Bethesda (again, on reputation...but always good)
8. LBC
9. Pride
10. Madskillz (Once again, reputation). But they were solid last year

Nems and Coppermine outside the top 10. FLG I believe was at Prime Time. But decided to play in a lower division I guess...Even though they were supposedly a top 10 team nationally.

BLC scrimmaged MDU two weeks ago. Both teams played all the girls and both goalies on each team got equal time. I had BLC 10-5.

Coppermine is in that mix from their results I saw in their rankings. Just tied NEMS Sunday I heard, beat MDU over the summer in Live Love Lax, beat LBC big last season, and lost to BLC in season by 1. For that fact and that all the results between those five teams are similar I would put them together behind M&D, BLC and Hero’s. They all beat up on FCA, Skywalkers, Integrity, HOCO and Hero’s White. The issue with Coppermine is they are always playing up in the best Division with M&D and Hero’s which makes up more than half their losses. I can agree to maybe put them at the bottom of the five but definitely with the others.

Coppermine is fine. But yes, you are correct. They usually play up....not always. But usually. And they will continue to have a ".500" type record because they play the lower level A teams tight. But will struggle against the M&D and Hero's teams. But the same could be said for many of the local teams. Doesn't mean they aren't top 20 national teams. Just not "elite" at this point.

Let's keep in mind that since last summer, some things have changed. LBC is stronger. MDU looks stronger. BLC will continue to be good.

It's good for the game to have as many talented local 27' teams as possible.

I follow the 26-30 age groups, and I gotta say the 2027 local teams just seem to be really talented.
NEMS, BLC, LBC, Pride you could make a claim that the top team is in the 2027 age group.

Hard to say its any different for Hero's and M&D. There just aren't many "easy outs" in local 2027s.

Yes, Eaglestix proved to be elite, but outside them and YJ, what non MD team is a real problem for MD teams? Madskills, had really one game vs M&D and they won, but didn't play any other locals.

Coppermine in Live Love Lax looked different than the other Coppermine teams in the tourny. I can't explain why, the results were just way off.


LLL
Coppermine by 4 over MDU
Coppermine by 1 over YJ A
Coppermine by 5 over PT

Other tournaments
Coppermine by 2 ONLY over Stars A team
Coppermine Lost by 2 to LBC (Who they beat 12-3 in NGLL)
Coppermine by 1 ONLY to CT Grizzles
Coppermine lost by 11 to BLC (Who they lost by only 1 in NGLL)
Coppermine lost by 9 to YJ A (who they beat in LLL)
Coppermine lost by 12 to Pride

Hard team to figure out. Injuries? Conflicts to top girls? Not sure but they are really up and down.

I agree the scores don’t always make sense with them. They do have some really talented girls but the talent on the team seems to have a larger gap between the top and bottom kids. That’s not the case with some of the other teams with more consistent results. Maybe they cut some of the lesser developed girls because I heard they picked up several new girls? When we have beat them their issues start with possession at Midfield and Attack not being physical enough to get to goal. That poor defense is defending us 85% of the game it seems like. I did hear LBC, Pride and MDU all got better over the summer. Not sure about NEMS this year. Do agree our Maryland NGLL League is hands down the best in the country!!!

They also have probably one of the 5 or 6 best players (#18) at this age group in MD. If they could fill out their starting lineup, they could contend mid-table of A. They wont be close to Heros, M&D, Pride or NEMS. But they will compete will MDU, Integrity, and LBC.

It was clear this weekend, unless TLC was missing some major players, that they are not a A Division team.

3-11 loss to Integrity. Given that result, they aren't even a top end B division team.

Does anyone think or has anyone heard of teams that were in the B Division last year moving up to the A Division this Spring? I hear a lot of buzz on here about TLC Red, overheard fathers talking about how good Skywalkers White is going to be this year, will FCA move to the B Division, will HOCO move up or anything else you heard about. Just curious after over hearing parents at the tournament this past weekend. Thoughts?

Can't say for sure, but I heard there will be 16 teams in A division, so that would be 4 new additions.

CCLax, Stars Light Blue, TLC Red and HoCo Black would be my assumptions.

I think Skywalkers Blue and FCA Blue remain.

I think it is important to keep things in context.

They may have 16 "A" Division teams for NGLL. But locally, really it is a tale of 2 halves. Hero's, M&D, Bethesda, Pride, Nems, Coppermine, LBC and Maryland United will make up the upper A Division. Maybe Hero's White.

Teams like CCLax, Integrity, Skywalkers Blue, FCA and a few others will play in a lower division.

You can't have CCLax and Skywalkers Blue or similar playing teams like Hero's or M&D. Those teams don't mess around in NGLL. And you are talking about 15-1 type games if any of those lower "A" teams play teams like Hero's or M&D.

That's not to say those other teams shouldn't participate in NGLL. They should all want to compete against the better teams. But nobody (including the parents) want to see anyone get drummed every week.

That makes sense to me as well. I think we will be seeing the same 2 teams in the playoffs with the other 5 or 6 teams fighting for the other 2 spots. I could see Renegades possibly trying to play up. I can’t see Skywalkers White as they didn’t even play B last year and the Blue team gets crushed. They would be beat by 20 if played the big 3 teams and lose by double digits to all but FCA, SW Blue, and Hero’s White. Looking forward to the next two weekends. Good luck everyone.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2027 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 11/02/21 05:53 PM
The issue is, if there is two divisions of 8 teams, with a 16 team A conference, you will be a very uneven schedule.

There will likely be a team that avoids playing M&D and Hero's while another team will ger them and also not play the bottom 2-3 teams.

If I were to take a stab at trying to even it up, I'd do it this way (you play all 7 teams in your division then one from other division).
You almost need to put logic in building the divisions to evenly disperse the talent and SOS.

Blue
M&D Black
Bethesda
Coppermine
LBC
Integrity
FCA Blue
HOCO Black
Stars Light Blue




Red
Hero's Green
NEMS
Pride Red
MDU
Hero's White
TLC Red
Skywalkers Blue
CCLax


Does Renegades, HLC or Next Level try to get there as well?

Those look like a couple of nice well balanced brackets. Everyone gets some tough teams and some easier teams. Tops from each battle it out.

Are a lot of other teams struggling to get a strong group of girls to commit to the Mid Atlantic this year due to soccer? We are and I heard of at least one other team is really short on players. Should be interesting

After this morning it is clear that M&D has the edge over Hero’s. The two are also better than the rest. Bethesda is still the #3. Pride is moving in the right direction while Coppermine is not. NEMS is still under review as they were short some of their top girls. Wish the two tops played tomorrow.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2027 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 11/06/21 10:57 PM
Agree. M&D is #1. BLC was up on Hero’s 4-1 at one point but Hero’s dominated the 2nd half and pulled away. Saw BLC’s best offensive player on crutches. Tough loss for them.

I wouldn't say an edge. Both are great teams. Probably trade wins back and forth when they play each other. And Bethesda is still really good.

But after those 3, there is a big drop off to number 4

Nothing surprising. M&D and Hero's looked rusty. But just have better talent(hence 4-0) Bethesda looked decent vs both of them just not quite enough firepower. Nems and Pride showed flashes. Coppermine had a rough weekend.

The only surprise is the score between Hero’s and Coppermine. What happened there? Coppermine looked really bad in their games I saw so how did Hero’s only win by 3? Really would have like to see M&D/ Hero’s match up. Take Coppermine out of the top bracket so we see better matchups. Otherwise it’s clear M&D and Hero’s are still the two top dawgs.

Not sure I agree..... You need to give Pride credit, the CRUSHED BLC and went 2-2. Not sure how BLC is considered 3 still after only 1-3 and only beating Coppermine... I would put Pride at 3 for now, NEMS and BLC fight for 4th

Fall Ball is about getting their kinks out - especially if there has been changes to the team. It in no way declares that Spring will be tough!

I wouldn't say an edge. Both are great teams. Probably trade wins back and forth when they play each other. And Bethesda is still really good.

But after those 3, there is a big drop off to number 4


Not sure I agree..... You need to give Pride credit, the CRUSHED BLC and went 2-2. Not sure how BLC is considered 3 still after only 1-3 and only beating Coppermine... I would put Pride at 3 for now, NEMS and BLC fight for 4th

That has to be a bad score reported. No way Pride beats BLC 10-1. BLC played both top teams close. And both Hero's and M&D crushed Pride. If that score is correct, that would be the strangest result.

Agree with poster giving Pride credit. Beat BLC 10-1 and wasn't really close from what I heard. However, still a considerable gap between Hero's and M&D and the rest. Out of the second tier teams Pride is one of the better ones. Coppermine didn't look as good as they did last year. Not sure if they lost some girls or what?? More games to play next weekend, should be fun!

That's a lot of kinks.
The report after tryouts was that Coppermine had gotten much better.
Results say otherwise.

I would really like to see a tournament....probably towards the end of the spring season, where a double elimination tournament is created. Almost a season ending national championship. Where bracket play isn't involved. Possibly 2 Divisions. A Gold and Silver. Would look something like this:

Gold

Bethesda
Hero's
M&D
Aces
YJ
Eagle Stix
MDU
Madskillz

Silver

Nems
Pride
FLG
LBC
Coppermine
LBC
Hero's White
LI Jester

Maybe divisions get adjusted based on the year. But you set up games 1 vs 8, 2 vs 7, 3 vs 6, 4 vs 5....all based on rankings by a certain date. You go 0-2, you go home early. You could play 2 games, you could come up through the losers bracket and get 6 games. Other than Lax for the Cure, you rarely get all of the top teams in one spot. This would eliminate the bracket bias. Every game is competitive.

For my daughter, we play the top teams all year and don't win many of them. But a bracket like this, could give us a chance to compete for a championship (albeit Silver) against like competition.

Not a Pride fan at all, but they just smashed Bethesda, and BLC went 1-3. Not sure why they'd be in the "top" division over a team like Pride or even Jesters??

Again, it's about the team learning to play together, especially if there are changes. Not that big of a deal.

Nothing surprising. M&D and Hero's looked rusty. But just have better talent(hence 4-0) Bethesda looked decent vs both of them just not quite enough firepower. Nems and Pride showed flashes. Coppermine had a rough weekend.

The only surprise is the score between Hero’s and Coppermine. What happened there? Coppermine looked really bad in their games I saw so how did Hero’s only win by 3? Really would have like to see M&D/ Hero’s match up. Take Coppermine out of the top bracket so we see better matchups. Otherwise it’s clear M&D and Hero’s are still the two top dawgs.

Hero's started and played all of its backups. And still beat Coppermine by 3.
Seriously? You are going to tell me that Hero's started and played the entire game with only their "backups"? Wasn't aware that 7th grade lacrosse had "backups". Talk about making excuses!

Based on the 30-40 games played last season would be my assumption.

LI Jesters at the 2027, they haven't really shown much. Finished ranked #45.

From all scores that I have seen, Heros has not blown anyone out, but they win the games convincingly. Backup/missing players/etc they just seem to be winning, so no excuses are needed.

I don't think they said "entire game". They said started and played. They don't have enough for backups the whole game. And if you don't understand that there are backups at 27's. Then you are naive. And what "excuse"? They won.

Enjoy your participation trophy.

Nearly all teams have the same girls start maybe a few rotate as starters per game. For those that do not start, they are the "backups".

BLC seems to have gotten significantly worse. What’s the story there? There is a lot of talent in the DC area that BLC pulls from and it seems to get squandered.

What the heck are you talking about. Also had several children go through this experience and played for top club teams and there are always girls/boys that start every game and some that don't. That may change come high school and recruiting time when they mostly play in showcases and time gets split evenly but at this age of course there are starters and backups. If you don't want to call them backups what do you call them?

They are called players! They pay the same amount of money as the other girls on the team. Yes, I’m aware that there are starters (my daughter is one of them). The person stated that hero’s started & played their back ups, to imply that that was the reason for only losing by 3.

That was not a good display this weekend.
It's borderline "Blow it up and start over."

Their parents may pay the same amount but do they work outside of practice at same amount? It’s club, you earn PT, it’s not split even. There are starters and there are backups, go play rec if you want even split.

For what its worth, I saw the Hero's BLC game, and Hero's did not have backups, all of the girls looked like they should start, at no point did I see one that fell into the "backup" category. They also kept subbing the players in and out so everyone played. So if the discussion is did Hero's play their backups, I would say No because it does not seem like they have any.

I guess I had higher expectations having heard Coppermine grew by leaps and bounds since tryouts.
It just wasn't what I saw. I look forward to seeing the much-improved spring version then, I guess.

It's kind of creepy that you are watching multiple games of a team that you do not have a child on and that you think needs so much improvement.

Understanding the Renegades 2027 team was formed in the late summer of 2020, their progression from a new team (from mostly Rex league teams) that had challenges executing, to the team they are today shows continuous improvement, excellent coaching and desire. All the things needed to keep moving up. If they get elevated to A division they will certainly face tougher teams and will need to continue progressing. Good on them for their achievements so far.

Tell their coach to ask for the A Division. It's hard to judge the progression if you keep playing B and C division.

Interesting considering Coppermine and M&D Black played at the same times the entire weekend.

My predictions on the standing winners for Mid Atlantic this weekend

Blue
Hero's White
(They are battle tested and have some solid players, if refs call it tight it could work against them as they most def play to echo of the whistle)

Green
Renegades
(They've been impressive, should def move to the A division of NGLL)

Pink
M&D Black
(I fully expect to see the 1 and 2 seeds from this division be M&D and Heros)

Purple
HoCo Black
(Skywalkers may have really improved, this weekend could show that, lots of roster turnover, but HoCo looks solid from what I've seen)

Yellow
M&D Orlando
(Yeah, I'm just going off of name here, no clue how good they are)

Seems pretty accurate.

Hero's White Not a tough division for them
Renegades Again, easy Division. And No, they aren't a potential A team. Hero's and M&D would smash them 15-0...so would MDU
M&D or Hero's flip a coin. One of them is def going to win this thing
HoCo I'll take a flyer on Skywalkers....no idea why
M&D Orlando I'm gonna go with L.I. Top Guns just for fun

With that in mind, your previous picks are probably accurate. I'm just trying to find something to nitpick

(They've been impressive, should def move to the A division of NGLL)

Pink
M&D Black
(I fully expect to see the 1 and 2 seeds from this division be M&D and Heros)

Purple
HoCo Black
(Skywalkers may have really improved, this weekend could show that, lots of roster turnover, but HoCo looks solid from what I've seen)

Yellow
M&D Orlando
(Yeah, I'm just going off of name here, no clue how good they are)

Seems pretty accurate.

Hero's White Not a tough division for them

In regards to Renegades on A league, they would get crushed as you stated but can they beat Integrity (they did) Skywalkers, FCA, if answer is yes, they earned A division, not to mention a few likely new A division teams (stars, CCLax)

How is everyone looking after the first day of Mid Atlantic?

Cold, wet and Muddy. Tough sledding out there today. Not sure there were a lot of surprises although a good amount of close games. If you weren't lucky enough to get a turf game, you are probably washing your daughters jersey at this moment

What do we expect from the Mid Atlantic showcase?

M&D sailing through? Same for Hereo's
More rough sailing for Coppermine? Can Pride LBC or NEMS show anything?

2027 girls seems to be a big drop from the top 5-6 teams overall. I would include our top 2 teams. M&D Black and Hero’s Green. Then the two stud NY clubs…Aces and Yellow Jackets A team. Then add Eagle Stix obviously…they get credit for traveling to play the best. Then maybe the FL team Madskillz. They are going to have to travel more to prove themselves. Then I think the next 6 best teams are all MD clubs. Depth in MF is impressive.

Congratulations to M&D. Tough weekend all around with weather, field conditions, refs and personnel issues due to multiple sports. Definitely some crazy scores between both days but that was to be expected. Heard LBC was without their goalie, TLC & Coppermine without half their team, NEMS without a couple of their best and out of state teams showing up in lower Divisions. It’s clear M&D and Hero’s are lacrosse first teams and it shows on the field. Bring on the winter ball.

Agreed, congrats to Hero's Green and M&D!! Still the top two teams anyway you slice it. Possible Rankings after Fall:

1) Hero's Green (Or Flip Flop with M&D)
2) M&D

3) Pride - Beat BLC 10-1 last week, NEMS twice and Coppermine once in two weeks
4) BLC - Plays everyone tough but other teams have narrowed the gap
5) LBC - Beat Hero's today and is competitive
6) NEMS - Solid
7) Maryland United - Solid
8) Coppermine - good, but tough competition in this group

M&D gets number 1. They went 6-0. Hero's went 4-2 this weekend. Heard the level of play was high in the final. Wished we could stuck around to watch

LBC looked pretty good. Nems looked better. BLC will be fine. Still lots of talent. MDU is gonna be a handful for the 3-5 slot. Pride is solid. Well coached. Coppermine is in big trouble regardless of who shows up on that team. I'd say big drop after top 7.

The rankings look good but have to put M&D number 1 after beating Hero’s straight up.

I watched the first half of the championship game. And I can say without a doubt that M&D and Hero's have a lot of talent between them (obviously). As a parent who's daughter rarely gets to play those 2 teams, it was fun to watch. The speed is what separates those type of teams from the lower level teams. Not to mention the physicality. Congrats to M&D for winning and Hero's as well.

Another terrible weekend for TLC Red.

I don't see how they can go to the A Division of NGLL.

Renegades got it done again, they should be ready for A Division or at least ready to take their lumps.

Got what done? Went undefeated in the worst bracket and lost in the 1st round of playoffs to a lower B or C level team.

Stay competitive in the B Division let the girls have fun. If Renegades played against A level competition it would be ugly.

The only "B" level team that could consider moving up is Hero's White.

You can only play the team that you line up against and yes, Renegades is getting it done. Hero's White has always played in the A division, so not sure what you mean by "moving up".

If Renegades wants to improve, they need better competition, yes getting blown out will come along with that, but its about development, those girls need to be pushed, they absolutely need to go to A.

Missing 6 players including 3 of 4 top middies. Not saying they should be an A team, but would read a ton into this weekend.

Its really up to them. Have you seen the bottom level of A. Renegades wins more than it loses against the likes of SW, FCA, Integrity and anyone else who moves up.

If they want to progress as a club, they need to take their lumps. Also, playing up with help with improving their talent levels.

Going to be more interesting Spring in 2027.

LBC, Pride with a few statement games.

There's going to be a playoff NGLL team that had a combination of a very advantageous schedule which avoids a Hero's Green or M&D matchup while getting a low tier A team on schedule.

Top 2 seeds from each division make playoffs. Usually Hero's and M&D are on opposite sides. Then Bethesda on one side and the "perceived " 4th best team on other.

So yes, certainly opens the door for Pride, LBC, MDU or someone else. But there are no guarantees. Who's to say Hero's and M&D are automatic. Although it would be a big surprise for them not to finish top 2 in their division.

I'm going to say, it won't be BLC this time around.

M&D, Hero's Green are rock solid playoff bound teams.

Its going to be someone like a Pride, LBC, MDU, NEMS, whichever avoids playing either M&D and Hero's Green.

The 3 & 4 slots are going to have to play either M&D or heros (as they should be separated by division) its all about who else is in their division and do they escape playing both M&D and Heros because of out of division games?

I'm interested to understand why it wouldn't be BLC in the #3 or #4 slot? Yes, they laid an egg v Pride a couple weeks ago but they were without their best offensive player the entire weekend due to injury. Not saying she would've been the difference but the game would've been closer. BLC had both Hero's and BLC 5-5 late in both games. Didn't finish.

Before the loss to Pride, allow me to list the teams BLC has lost to since September 2020 : M&D Black and Hero's Green. The gap has definitely closed, but the lack of respect for BLC from some here is confusing.

1) They lost a key offensive player in offseason who is now at Hero's Green
2) They won a lot of tight games, (1 goal wins over MDU, Coppermine, NEMS, NXT Black, Pride Red)
3) Improvements from teams that weren't playing NGLL in 4th grade, lots of girls catching up both mentally and physically to high level club lacrosse

That is enough for me to think someone knocks them out from being one of the four playoff teams out of 12 maybe 16 that are in the field for 2022.

Yes, assuming you split M&D and Heros, everyone will play at least one, but several teams will play both, and BLC which is tough draw.

In 2021, NEMS didn't play M&D Black or BLC, instead got Skywalkers and FCA, the two weakest A teams in league.

I agree. If you think BLC won't be in top 4 you are mistaken. We played them a few weeks back and barely escaped with a win. They are still legit

Non-Bethesda parent here.

Bethesda is just fine. Well coached team. Still lots of talent. It seems every year people speak of their demise. They are definite top 4 team. It is true that the gaps are closing. It happens in every age group every year as these girls get older. But for this age group locally, there are really 6-7 teams that can make a run at top 4 for NGLL

M&D
Hero's
Bethesda
Pride
LBC
MDU
Maybe Nems (if everyone shows up to the games)

Other than that, there are 8-10 teams that could trade wins each week. But they are all going .500 at best. And that is with a lucky or soft schedule. There will be 1 or 2 potential teams that might not even win a game.

Part of the reasoning into thinking that BLC is going to eventually fail is, they are the one real successful team in that club.
BLC does not have a HS team, is that correct? Are they planning to have this 2027 team be the first?

Non-Bethesda parent here.

Bethesda is just fine. Well coached team. Still lots of talent. It seems every year people speak of their demise. They are definite top 4 team. It is true that the gaps are closing. It happens in every age group every year as these girls get older. But for this age group locally, there are really 6-7 teams that can make a run at top 4 for NGLL

M&D
Hero's
Bethesda
Pride
LBC
MDU
Maybe Nems (if everyone shows up to the games)

Other than that, there are 8-10 teams that could trade wins each week. But they are all going .500 at best. And that is with a lucky or soft schedule. There will be 1 or 2 potential teams that might not even win a game.

Part of the reasoning into thinking that BLC is going to eventually fail is, they are the one real successful team in that club.
BLC does not have a HS team, is that correct? Are they planning to have this 2027 team be the first?

Doubtful. They never have. Coach will probably send younger daughter to SW just like her older daughter.

I don't think they go past 8th grade. Then they form something else I believe. In theory they have 2 more years

Top 2 seeds from each division make playoffs. Usually Hero's and M&D are on opposite sides. Then Bethesda on one side and the "perceived " 4th best team on other.

So yes, certainly opens the door for Pride, LBC, MDU or someone else. But there are no guarantees. Who's to say Hero's and M&D are automatic. Although it would be a big surprise for them not to finish top 2 in their division.

I'm going to say, it won't be BLC this time around.

M&D, Hero's Green are rock solid playoff bound teams.

Its going to be someone like a Pride, LBC, MDU, NEMS, whichever avoids playing either M&D and Hero's Green.

I'm interested to understand why it wouldn't be BLC in the #3 or #4 slot? Yes, they laid an egg v Pride a couple weeks ago but they were without their best offensive player the entire weekend due to injury. Not saying she would've been the difference but the game would've been closer. BLC had both Hero's and BLC 5-5 late in both games. Didn't finish.

Before the loss to Pride, allow me to list the teams BLC has lost to since September 2020 : M&D Black and Hero's Green. The gap has definitely closed, but the lack of respect for BLC from some here is confusing.


1) They lost a key offensive player in offseason who is now at Hero's Green
2) They won a lot of tight games, (1 goal wins over MDU, Coppermine, NEMS, NXT Black, Pride Red)
3) Improvements from teams that weren't playing NGLL in 4th grade, lots of girls catching up both mentally and physically to high level club lacrosse

That is enough for me to think someone knocks them out from being one of the four playoff teams out of 12 maybe 16 that are in the field for 2022.

I’m old enough to remember when people on this board posted that BLC had lost up to 5 starters and that the team was in shambles. That was funny.

How many players did BLC lose?

BLC ends in 8th grade. The girls from BLC, Stars, and a few of other clubs that surround the DC area will all try out for Capital Lacrosse, actually both teams feed into Capital Lacrosse which is the higher end HS program in the area. I can also foresee a couple of girls trying out for PRIDE if they don't make Capital and then worst case the remainders will try out for SW etc......

BLC was started solely as a boys lacrosse club. The girls program is relatively new...maybe 10 years? Before this 2027 team....BLC ended their girls club program after 5th grade. For the most part girls would then move on to STARS or MC Elite, maybe others. This 2027 group resides mostly in the Bethesda/Chevy Chase/Potomac area with a few from other parts of Montgomery County and a couple from Northern VA. They are uniquely talented when compared to the other BLC teams. A couple years ago BLC made the decision to extend their girls program from 5th grade to 8th grade mainly because of this 2027 squad. Coaches and parents wanted to keep them together. So in two years most will move on to Capitol, some to MC Elite and perhaps other clubs too. They are a nice group of girls and hopefully most of them will be able to play together beyond 8th grade.

Its wild how dominant M&D Black and Hero's Green is at 2027 level.

Based on 2020-2021 only:

M&D Went 44-5 with a 32 game winning streak
Those 5 losses were from 4 teams
(2) Hero's Green
(1) NEMS
(1) BLC
(1) Yellow Jackets A

Hero's went 42-6, those 6 losses were from 3 clubs
(3) M&D
(2) Yellow Jackets A
(1) Aces

Aces only had 1 loss (YJ A) not from M&D or Heros

Yellow Jackets only had 4 losses not from M&D or Heros
(2) Aces
(1) MDU
(1) Coppermine

Eaglestix only had 3 losses not from M&D or Hero's (3 Aces)


LBC beat Hero's Green last weekend
MDU beat Aces a few weeks ago

For me, the top-10 for 2022 so far

1) Eaglestix
2) M&D
3) Hero's Green
4) YJ A
5) Aces
6) BLC
7) Pride
8) LBC
9) MDU
10) NEMS

That's some in depth research.

Your top 10 is pretty accurate. Top 5 will probably trade wins against each other.

The 6-10 teams will do the same. Which is good for the game

I would add a big knock on the program overall is the parent coaching model. 27s have been able to escape it to date due to some talent (though other teams have closed the gap or surpassed them), but almost all of the other BLC teams struggle mightily and it is due to below average coaching more than anything else.

Not sure which one is the BLC coach's daughter, but doubtful she will go to SW. Assuming she's a good player, imagine she would tryout for Hero's or M&D.

Well, if her sisters are already on SW as was said, it makes sense.

I guess this is how SW will improve by the time HS rolls around.

(They've been impressive, should def move to the A division of NGLL)

Pink
M&D Black
(I fully expect to see the 1 and 2 seeds from this division be M&D and Heros)

Purple
HoCo Black
(Skywalkers may have really improved, this weekend could show that, lots of roster turnover, but HoCo looks solid from what I've seen)

Yellow
M&D Orlando
(Yeah, I'm just going off of name here, no clue how good they are)



Looks like I was 4 for 5. HoCo Black laid an egg.

M&D black rolled Hero's White in the semi-final, 7-0, showing what a big gap there is.

Yeah, but older SW is legit. 27 SW... not so much.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2027 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 11/19/21 12:23 AM
I know many friends with girls on the older SW teams 23’s-25’s that are great teams but they were all much better than this 27 team when they were all in 7th grade. Not sure where this 27 SW team will get girls from if they don’t develop their talent from within. I know of some really talented girls within the past two years that left the SW Blue team already. And the SW White team is awful so can’t rely on bringing these girls up.
I cannot see girls leaving the lower top tier teams to join this SW team- teams like MDU, Coppermine, or NEMS because they are all better and getting invited to all the same tournaments. I hear a lot about the top girls jumping teams by HS but not sure how. Hero’s and M&D are the two top teams with great rosters currently so honestly how many girls from those lower top tier teams really have a shot to replace the current girls? I can see those same teams improving by grabbing top individuals from teams like FCA, True, Limelight or other similar teams replacing their lesser talented girls in hopes to close the gap but I don’t see that happening either.
I see this as a two horse race between Hero’s and M&D with everyone else battling to be the third best team in the area. Thoughts? Anyone with better inside information on how this may play out? I definitely understand the future tournaments will be much tougher with much improved out of state teams too.

Agreed that SW 27 aren’t that good. Looking at the results from Live Love Lax I wonder how good are MDU and TLC. Clearly Hero’s Green is one of the top Maryland teams. I would say looking at the Fall Results so far:
1- M&D Black
2- Hero’s Green
3- Pride Red
4- BLC Blue
5- NEMS
6- LBC
7- Coppermine Black
8- Hero’s White
9- MDU
10- Skywalkers Blue
Then you have Renegades, TLC, FCA and Integrity. These would round our the A Division of 14 teams. Play each team in own Division plus 2 from the other.

The only time everyone is really in the same place is Lax For The Cure. Next spring. And that top bracket is going to be a monster.

M&D, Hero's, Aces, YJ, Eaglestix, Bethesda, Pride and probably LBC or Nems.

Anyone on any given day could win it.

MDU was without 6 starters and 9 players at LLL, I wouldn’t read much into the scores, the team that crushed Aces a month ago is more likely to be seen in Spring NGLL.

Hero’s White has had successful fall but who have they really beat? What was the impressive win?
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2027 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 11/22/21 02:52 PM
Hero’s White has zero impressive wins, they tied them beat FCA Blue by 1, so I’d put them at that level. I’d assume Renegades would beat them.

Hero’s White Def not in top-10 of MD teams

Stars is telling players and parents that they will play A level too. Wouldn't be surprised is HoCo or CCLax becomes the 16th team.

I don't know about destroy. But I'm sure they would fare ok. But I always wonder....if a team who plays B and C level competition can "destroy" a certain segment of the competition, then why hide in lower level competition? Sounds like a move to upper level A is on the horizon.

CavLax beat TopGuns and tied Steps Blue last weekend. Both A level teams. If you arent a name club, you can't just get in top brackets by asking to.

Looks like CavLax beat Sky Walkers by 1 in the Mid Atlantic, so there is some context. I think the "A" division should really only be 8 teams. Play each team once (7 games), and the top 4 records go into the playoffs. There is a considerable drop after 8. Sky Walkers, CavLax, TLC etc. would be in the next 8.

Look at Top Guns schedule last year and tell me what quality win on resume makes them a A level team? I agree the club is good but I’d say Top Gun 2027 not top tier team, saw them at Midatlantic last weekend, wasn’t in the top bracket there

Top Guns are from LI. We’re talking Maryland with a couple VA. teams thrown in. These are the teams you have to compare your team to.

Top Guns is in reference to Cav Lax. Above it was mentioned Top Guns top A team and therefore quality win, I’m disputing that.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2027 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 11/24/21 12:23 PM
Yeah, I get that. Just easier to compare a local team to other area teams. LI Top Guns seems a bit obscure? I can see if you're talking Aces Elite or YJ perhaps. Maybe that's your point, Top Guns is not really a quality win.

Won't argue at this level. However, if you look at older teams Top Guns is as good if not better than YJ

That’s irrelevant to the point in the 2027 thread, which is a win against 2027 Top Guns is a quality win, which it is not.

Got it - good program but not a great 2027 team. Sounds a little like SW.

Get out while you can
Everyone goes over to SW or others that aren’t too geographically-undesirable.

Hmmm…if you look at their recruiting from 2019, 2020 & 2021 class, their 22 & 23 class are severely slacking

In all honesty, it is a very well run club. Good coaches with a focus on development. Had multiple older daughters there that had a great experience. All that said, they just don't attract the top talent anymore.

Around 4-5 years ago when travel lax for 3rd and 4th graders started in a big way, TLC was at a disadvantage for not starting until 6th or 7th grade. They haven't recovered.

TLC was decent 4 years ago (and prior) with their red teams. White team has always struggled. Can’t put a finger on it, but they are not developing viable teams. They do have some very good individual players at all age groups, but that is run of the mill these days.

They are now equivalent to Bitmore and Redshirts.

They actually just bought Redshirts.

Good for them I hope the redshirts coaches stay with the teams. I think those teams are well coached. Teams usually punch above their athletic talent level.

Can they go .500 in the B division of NGLL?
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2027 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 12/01/21 03:55 PM
For 2027,
TLC Red
CCLax
Coppermine North (Who was this before they got bought out by Coppermine?)
Cavalier

appear to be new additions to NGLL A, while FCA Blue dropping down to B division
Room for one more team to be added to A.

Maybe Stars? Maybe Next Level?

Any teams playing in either indoor or outdoor winter leagues? Which teams, leagues, and how is the talent? In the winter leagues is it about reviewing players for Spring PT so everyone plays or is it about the start of earning PT so it’s set by Spring? I wish my daughter’s team was playing over the winter.

Coppermine, SW, Heros and Hoco are playing in new outdoor winter league. So far, didnt have more than 15 or 16 players at first game so PT was pretty even. Generally in winter, its just an excuse to keep a stick in the hand. Not really practicing as a team

There's the Coppermine Indoor League, the Coppermine Snowball League and the CHILL League on Eastern Shore. All three are great, indoor with 7 v 7 is great for lots of touches, no draws that tend to slow down the game.

So looking at the NGLL app that shows teams registered for this year I don’t see Skywalkers for the 27 yet but do for 26’s and 28’s. Anyone know if both SW Blue and White are playing in the NGLL or doing something different. Don’t see Renegades either. See CCLax, TLC and Cavalier now is the A Division. FCA moved to B. Hero’s as both in the A while M&D split between both Divisions. Looks like there is another week to register too.

Looks like NL has not registered for any years, but assume they are just lagging? Also interesting to see BLC orange (2nd tier) teams do not appear to be playing NGLL this season?

Maybe the Skywalkers 27 is looking for something easier. A friend who’s daughter plays in the Coppermine Winter League said the Coppermine 28 team just beat the SW 27 by a good amount. Not sure how many players were there as we didn’t see the game but I can’t understand what is happening with the younger SW teams. Not what they use to be.

Skywalkers is a great organization. But the 27 team is shall we say "lacking in talent"

There aren't many 27 teams they can beat. Even B and C teams. Hopefully things turn around for them.

Also missing are Stars at not only the 27 level but all levels, wonder what's going on there? Integrity is missing too.

Isn't that already factored into the Club membership dues, which already are known?

Honestly, NGLL is fantastic, in terms of fields (mostly) and high level product and intensity that these kids don't really see until HS level.
I mean the NGLL National Championship telecast was on par with some ESPN coverages Ive seen of college games.

If you are paying a fee "per player per tournament"....you are probably playing for a substandard team.

And yes, for younger girls, the NGLL is a terrific product. Most of the facilities are top notch. And the concentration of talent is as good as it gets in the DMV. I watched the broadcast last spring....I was really surprised at the level of quality they put on. Kids names were about 90% correct. lol But overall, it was really good.

NGLL just extended deadline through mid January to register.

Interesting Skywalkers White listed in B but no Skywalkers Blue anywhere
Renegades in B, I thought they coulda made leap to A, same for Stars Light Blue.

FCA Blue drops to B, they should do well there. Looking at some teams in B, you could almost make a C league, theres a few that will struggle in B.

Agree about renegades, they should cruise through B level, especially with CCLax gone. Next tier of FCA Stars, HoCo, Next Level probably 4-6 goals behind them.

Looks like updated and final US Lax Club Rankings

https://USCL.com/rank?v=2027&alpha=N&y=2021

Very flawed to have these up in the Fall, when teams are not at full rosters and many are not playing to win but playing to see what they have.

STEPS Califonia and LA Select, really hard to have them ranked top-10 without any common opponents.

Same for Madlax as #1. They beat M&D Orlando 10-6, who lost 2-3 to Hero's White. Not sure how that translates to them being ranked ahead of M&D or Hero's or Yellow Jackets, etc.

They are flawed, when you have limited data, and yes, people do care about them. I'd say the 2021 rankings were pretty close to accurate, from Top-10 all the way through top-75.

Why does anyone care about who some notIntelligent website thinks is the best 2027 club team? How does it in any way effect your lives or the lives of your daughters? What a completely random and meaningless thing to stress over.

I don't think anyone is "stressing" over this.

Honest question though, why are you reading and posting about 2027 girls lacrosse in the first place? To each their own, just seems odd you feel the need to give your opinion on it if you don't care about "notIntelligent website thinks".

Rankings are much more important for middle tier teams than the top ones, especially those from outside the east coast. Some tourney directors (especially robinson) use them to set brackets.


I'd sat they are directionally accurate. Only real place where they miss are for teams who consistently get blown out by top teams by more than the cap (eg skywalkers CT Grizzlies)
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2027 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 12/21/21 02:27 PM
The rankings are fun and at the same time don’t change the results when two teams matchup head to head. Those that want to look at them continue to do so as even my daughter enjoys them. I agree they help those teams outside of Maryland in Tournament placement s. However inside Maryland we know they can be incorrect at times. Some teams play easier schedules and win while others play tougher schedules and lose. It’s easy to debate how Pride, NEMS, BLC and LBC could all be adjusted slightly. One clear example is Coppermine. They are ranked below FCA and Skywalkers Blue. I have a friend who’s daughter plays for them and they beat those two teams every time. However they have played us and Hero’s Green in every tournament this Fall hurting their rankings. Not to mention when we played them this Fall they only had 10 of the 27’s there due to soccer. Look I know we are clearly better than them but my point is they are better than teams ranked above them. I also have an older daughter who’s had friends on lower ranked teams still get recruited as some really good girls play on average teams. Ranking are just part of the fun and easy to ignore if you personally don’t like it. We can all agree to disagree but I do see both sides.

So you are saying people hold kids back for 2 years so they can play lacrosse against younger kids.....are these kids also...delicately...not smart. It's kinda shocking that there aren't more people pointing out the absurdity of this. What kind of argument does a parent make for a straight A kid to repeat 5th grade again? What kind of school system allows that to happen? What kind of kid is OK with leaving his friends to progress with life while he repeats the same math classes he did the previous year?

Coppermine is in a tough spot. Too much pride to drop to B. Not good enough to hang in top 10 A in Maryland

If they played B in NGLL they would roll the Skywalkers and Renegades type teams.

Maybe their fortunes change in the spring. Good bunch of girls

Re: top divisions, the same can be said for Coppermine's 26s and sometimes 25s. The club must have a rationale they think is sound, but it can't be fun for the girls who have to go out and play such mismatched games. That said, Coppermine 27 does have quite a few girls who are also talented soccer players so seems likely the team you will see in the spring is much improved from the one you saw this fall.

I think they are right there in the top-10 of MD, A division. Certainly can beat Renagades or CCLax who will be in A.

The problem is it become a self-fulfilling if you drop down. Once you announced you aren't playing A anymore, you likely lose 3-5 of your best players, then you truly are a B team. I know CCLax pickedup a couple solid players from other top B teams because they would be moving up.

Clearly M&D and Hero’s are the top two. Any of the rest can beat one another on any given day.

NEMS has only beaten Coppermine (#40) & LBC (#21) this Fall while losing to Hero’s Green(#4), M&D Black (#3) and Pride (#11) each twice (missing some to injury & soccer). They tied Coppermine in Prime Time YG, beat them in Chesapeake, beat YJ South & lost to M&D in Prime Time.

Coppermine- beat LBC big in NGLL last year finishing 3rd, beat MD United (#27)YJ Grazidei (#5) and Prime Time (#6) in all at Live Love Lax with this same team less the 4 talented girls they picked up while losing only 1 or 2. This Fall they also tied NEMS (#14) in the Prime Time YGs Tournament. Mid-Atlantic they had no more than 10 girls due to soccer. Two of the last three games against Hero’s they only lost 3-6 & 8-12.

MDU beat Prime Time 3 times over the summer, beat YJ Grazidei but lost to Coppermine. Lost to Aces over the summer but beat them in the Fall. Yet they are #27 and Prime Time is # 6.

LBC only beat Hero’s Green once, tied Coppermine and lost to M&D, Hero’s, Aces and Eagle Stix. Can’t really count the other games as those teams aren’t that strong.

Some teams are still playing majority of their starters while others are doing even PT in the Fall. Some have a few players where soccer or other sports conflict with Fall Lacrosse while others had a lot less conflicts. It’s clear M&D and Hero’s are in a league of their own but they still need teams in that league. All of these teams deserve to play in the A Division along with the others already registered in the NGLL Spring League. I’m still waiting for the day Skywalkers starts to compete with these teams and maybe this is the year from the pick ups they got I hear. I cheer for all to improve because the stronger our League is the better our girls will be in the future.

Very flawed to have these up in the Fall, when teams are not at full rosters and many are not playing to win but playing to see what they have.

STEPS Califonia and LA Select, really hard to have them ranked top-10 without any common opponents.

Same for Madlax as #1. They beat M&D Orlando 10-6, who lost 2-3 to Hero's White. Not sure how that translates to them being ranked ahead of M&D or Hero's or Yellow Jackets, etc.


The problem with ranking the top non-east coast teams is that they rarely play in their own age group when they stay local and these games don't count for ranking points. I can name a few west coast/south/midwest teams who are legit top 30 teams. Neither of these teams are in that group.

Looking at California, you should look at Alliance California who just rolled over the 26 bracket at Sin City, one of the biggest west coast events.

I would expect to see a shakeup in these rankings after Sandstorm in January , where also all of the top CA,CO and TX teams will play in their own age group against each other.

I assume the same soccer girls will be missing in the Spring too. Soccer is year round. Maybe they make it to the early Summer tournaments.

I think that's fair. The big question for me is BLC. Last year, they were the clear #3 team. Curious to see if that is still true. They played M&D and Heros close at Chesapeake but got pwned by Pride.

MD United probably had the most perplexing fall. They may have had the best fall win of any MD team, beating Aces Elite 9-4, but also had a very unexplainable blowout losses, losing by 10 to Prime time and Gold Coast.

Maybe, maybe not? The top soccer travel teams (ECNL pipeline) don't allow girls to play other sports, especially other travel sports. So the girls who are doing both are likely playing for a lower tier soccer club.

Our club has a rule that in spring summer, lacrosse is priority, in fall winter, you are excused to miss lax tournaments.

Not sure why any A team would keep a player who is willing to miss spring summer lacrosse for other sports.

Soccer thinks everything revolves around their sport, I get it,

What league did M&D 27 Red play in this past spring? Would have thought NGLL B, but looked and they are not listed in the final standings.

I wouldn’t assume that. Lacrosse is year round too. Generally girls that play 2 year round sports favor the “in season” sport. Meaning soccer is first in fall, lacrosse is first in spring.

Wow. You really spent a lot of time on this. In the end none of this will matter. Most of these girls will move to different teams in the next few years.

Right, does BLC even have High School teams, whereas Hero's has an amazing track record of recruiting.

I think this helps BLC more than it hurts Hero's who can just replace the production from another starter anyways.

This is most likely case. A lot of girls will play both in HS, but girls on A teams of great clubs will likely put soccer on backburner. I don't think its possible to play high level club in HS for both sports, too many conflicts.

MDU parent here.
Aces game we played nearly perfect, 5-1 at half, I do think Aces traveling Friday to MD, prob too much playtime in hotel Friday night affected their play at 8am, coupled with them crushing us over summer, they prob weren't prepared for us.

As for Prime Time and Gold Coast, we had a shell of a team with 9 players out due to other conflicts. Depth wasn't there. I will say, Gold Coast, they have two very good (tall) middie/DC girls. They should be a top-20 team when it all shakes out. Prime Time wasn't much different than the teams will beat in summer, offense goes through same two players who are good.

I expect us to be right there in the pack battling for the last playoff spot in NGLL.

Are you sure this really happened? That makes no sense, unless they are trying to make her the "Savior of BLC" why would you move from Hero's G mid season? I think I could understand them chasing t-shirts and hats if they moved her to M&D B, but BLC????? Hero's G is a top tier team that all plays play in the games, the players are all good, maybe she is not shinning there and can shine at BLC. This does not add up to me.

Coppermine- beat LBC big in NGLL last year finishing 3rd, beat MD United (#27)YJ Grazidei (#5) and Prime Time (#6) in all at Live Love Lax with this same team less the 4 talented girls they picked up while losing only 1 or 2. This Fall they also tied NEMS (#14) in the Prime Time YGs Tournament. Mid-Atlantic they had no more than 10 girls due to soccer. Two of the last three games against Hero’s they only lost 3-6 & 8-12.

MDU beat Prime Time 3 times over the summer, beat YJ Grazidei but lost to Coppermine. Lost to Aces over the summer but beat them in the Fall. Yet they are #27 and Prime Time is # 6.

LBC only beat Hero’s Green once, tied Coppermine and lost to M&D, Hero’s, Aces and Eagle Stix. Can’t really count the other games as those teams aren’t that strong.

Some teams are still playing majority of their starters while others are doing even PT in the Fall. Some have a few players where soccer or other sports conflict with Fall Lacrosse while others had a lot less conflicts. It’s clear M&D and Hero’s are in a league of their own but they still need teams in that league. All of these teams deserve to play in the A Division along with the others already registered in the NGLL Spring League. I’m still waiting for the day Skywalkers starts to compete with these teams and maybe this is the year from the pick ups they got I hear. I cheer for all to improve because the stronger our League is the better our girls will be in the future.


I think that's fair. The big question for me is BLC. Last year, they were the clear #3 team. Curious to see if that is still true. They played M&D and Heros close at Chesapeake but got pwned by Pride.

MD United probably had the most perplexing fall. They may have had the best fall win of any MD team, beating Aces Elite 9-4, but also had a very unexplainable blowout losses, losing by 10 to Prime time and Gold Coast.

I heard that BLC added a VERY talented player a few weeks ago. She had played with Hero’s Green.

Why would a player leave Heros for BLC?

Right, does BLC even have High School teams, whereas Hero's has an amazing track record of recruiting.

I think this helps BLC more than it hurts Hero's who can just replace the production from another starter anyways.


Are you sure this really happened? That makes no sense, unless they are trying to make her the "Savior of BLC" why would you move from Hero's G mid season? I think I could understand them chasing t-shirts and hats if they moved her to M&D B, but BLC????? Hero's G is a top tier team that all plays play in the games, the players are all good, maybe she is not shinning there and can shine at BLC. This does not add up to me.

I think you answered your own question in terms of wanting to shine.

BTW, you are going to see this happening more and more at the elite teams.

I guess we’ll just have to see how things pan out. She’s major addition.[/quote]

I don't see it either. Leaving a top team while burning a bridge to go to another program which won't exist at her age level at 18 months. Only makes sense if this player has no desire to play travel in high school.

Not sure about her future plans but i think this addition puts BLC 2027 back in the picture. I’ve seen this girl play before and was very impressed.

She could easily move over to Capital Lax where most of the top BLC and Stars players have in past.

If it was that bigger attack player, she was their best attack player. It sounds like BLC made out well. If it was someone else, not a huge deal.

Although I'm sure Hero's will be fine.

Heros made out better on the deal. Parents are a nightmare. Very toxic people who belittles other girls on the team. The daughter is nice enough and a good player. Heros has plenty of talent that can slot right in where she was.

Hero's is loaded, especially with their offense. They got multiple kids that can score. They won't miss a beat.

Teams like Hero's and M&D can absorb a talented kid leaving. Although you wonder if something else is at play internally. And I'm sure the parents aren't that bad.

Heros will be just fine… addition by subtraction and not through fault of the player. Good luck to BLC… a great addition to the culture of the team!

Parents are so toxic, everyone on Heros from the coaches to the board is happy that player is gone. There is more than enough talent around and these toxic parents hurt this poor girls prospects. She will be moving teams often.

As a parent of a kid who plays both of these teams, and unfortunately doesn't win many of them. I can tell you without a doubt, you are correct.

It is undoubtedly worse. Hero’s families I know are way more down to earth and my understanding is that the girls there come from all walks of life and have little overlap in school, etc… outside of lacrosse. BLC families we know in our neighborhood say the program is poorly run and made up of a few cliquey families that parent “coach” and play favorites. That was our primary reason for choosing NL instead.

This is silly. Every club team goes through similar issues. Some years are better than others but to categorize an entire set of parents like this is ridiculous. Sounds like sour grapes to me.

If you chose an offer of BLC 27 for NL 27, you may have made a bad choice, if winning and talent is something you value.

Not if your daughter would have been the last girl on BLC 27 Blue and never played except for garbage time. Also if she is a 28 or 29, then it is a pretty easy decision

M&D sold! Other clubs moving on up!
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2027 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 12/30/21 06:37 AM
Has anyone heard if the sale of M&D to 3 Steps will change anything for the current team? As anyone heard of other possible Maryland teams 3 Steps may be buying or trying to buy? It’s an interesting development that could change youth sports but I don’t know enough about it to know the impacts of it. Any thoughts or knowledge? Very interested to understand this.

Biggest impact will likely be on the tournament side. 3 step programs likely playing Robinson Sports and Aloha tourneys instead of TOTB or STEPS/YJ tourneys.

Wouldn't expect major changes this year. Biggest issue in my mind though is if M&D's schedule will change. That could be the one thing that could drive some families away. Already lots of older parents upset about not playing in G8. If they opt out of Live Love Lax or Lax For the Cure I could see some other families leave.

Also will be dependant on how long Robinson stays.

This exactly. G8 aged girls/families were pissed last year. The tournament M&D was in was a joke compared to G8. And teams already opting out of Mid-Atlantic for Maryland Cup. CR got out (sure he's still involved, but like you said, for how long) while the getting was good.

Short sighted. One tournament doesn't make the club good or bad. M&D still beat Hero's and BLC and Skywalkers and whomever.
Sure it would it be nice to play in G8 but no doing so didn't ruin the program or the year.

Not that I think M&D is done, but once the girls get to high school the wins and losses don’t really matter. Playing in the right recruiting showcases is what matters, and the G8 is a big one.

This is being short sighted. Look further down the line. Teams already moving over to MD Cup this summer so Mid Atlantic won't be as good. More teams will move over in 2023. Good clubs with no skin in the game are going to go to the tournaments with the best recruiting and best competition.

I'm assuming that as part of the transaction, CR agreed to stay on for x years. Big question is that happens when he leaves?

Can't imagine any girls 25 or older making a move at this point. Will be interesting to see if any moves are made at 26 and 27 level.

Seems like lots of clubs going thru changes. Word for a while is Skywalkers looking for buyer too.

Stuck at home due to Covid precautions while reading this post as an M&D parent made me curious, so I decided to do some research. From what I found there was no G8 two summers ago. I just went to the M&D Facebook page to see how not going to G8 the last two years is affecting college commitments for M&D. Here is what the research shows:
According to M&D's Facebook page, I counted 61 M&D girls in the last 16 months that have committed to play college lacrosse. This includes several to Maryland, Duke, Clemson, a couple to Boston College, Stanford, North Carolina, USC, Harvard, Yale, Va Tech, Florida, Johns Hopkins, Brown, Villanova as well as several other schools. The conclusion I take from this is I guess these girls are getting plenty of college exposure at other tournaments.

Anyone know if Skywalkers Blue is actually playing in the NGLL A Division? I notice the White Team is registered for the B Division so guessing they are but the site hasn’t updated yet. Looks like 13 teams when you back out the 28 Blue Coppermine so one more or even three would be preferred. Looks like a good group of teams lead by Hero’s Green and M&D Black. There doesn’t seem to be any push overs this year so everyone has a chance.

TLC and Cavalier won't win a game (or come close) unless it is against each other. Renegades probably should be playing A. They would be much more competitive and will likely roll the B division

Serious question (not trying to troll). Do you think coaching on 27 Black is comparable to other top teams in MD and nationally. My daughter played against them and they are the most talent team at her age group that we have ever seen. That said, she said it felt like they didn't have a plan on offense and they relied on their stars to score 1:1 goals

In contrast when we payed Heros and that Georgia team, we probably had similar talent levels, but those teams were just machines on offense, playing at a sophistication we have never seen (even with some older daughters as well)

I would say most of these A clubs have great coaching, ton of experience. What separates M&D and Hero's from the rest, imo, is ability to win draws and eliminate unforced TOs. There are still some 7th graders who struggle to consistently catch or throw catchable passes.

They will all get there soon enough. Now if you have 1-2 kids who just athletically can't be covered, that opens up everything on offense.

Eventually defenders learn to crash, learn to watch off ball, lax IQ improves so they don't lose their kid in 8 meter on a cut, girls know to switch off their player, etc.

Renegades, TLC, CCLax will have growing pains this year, the speed is just different, the shooting is far superior, goalie play much more advanced

Renegades, TLC, CCLax will have growing pains this year, the speed is just different, the shooting is far superior, goalie play much more advanced


Accurate. When you watch the B division teams like Renegades and TLC, the speed is different. Things move at half speed compared to the above mentioned teams like M&D, BLC and Hero's.

Girls can develop ball skills and understanding of the game. But what separates the top teams is the aggressive play and the superior athletes. Those athletes don't appear at lower divisions very often. And when they do, they join (or tryout) for better teams.

With the three second rule, spacing, getting the right matchup, and going one on one is smart. Northwestern won countless national championships with that philosophy. Maryland too. I am not sure Megan Whittle had an assist her entire career.

In contrast when we payed Heros and that Georgia team, we probably had similar talent levels, but those teams were just machines on offense, playing at a sophistication we have never seen (even with some older daughters as well)

I would say most of these A clubs have great coaching, ton of experience. What separates M&D and Hero's from the rest, imo, is ability to win draws and eliminate unforced TOs. There are still some 7th graders who struggle to consistently catch or throw catchable passes.

Renegades won't have growing pains, at least in NGLL since they are playing B. Their top 12 would be competitive within the middle tier of A. I think they are at a similar level as Integrity, MD United and Coppermine.

Integrity isn't even on the same tier as Coppermine or MD United.

Mistake by Renegades. Hopefully they try to play up in summer tournaments.

This is funny. First off. Md United would crush Renegades. Secondly, I find it comical that you boast of the "top 12" talent hanging with A talent yet sign up for NGLL B Division.

Nice try Renegades dad. If you have 12 talented players at A level, why hide in B?

Looked at their schedules over the last year, I don't see one signature win where you can say, wow, they are a solid A level club. If they have one, please let me know.

Had anyone had a daughter attend the Apex Youth games? Seeing IG posts of girls from big name clubs saying they will attend.

Another money grab. Advertise "top players". Basically anyone willing to fork over 600 bucks can attend.

I know a few girls who have attended. And they aren't the strongest girls in their age group.

I think this is the first time they are doing this. Apex does other stuff like clinics, etc. but I think this is the first time they are actually putting competition of teams together.

Seems like a money grab to me, no tryouts? A few good players def going there (Aces, Hero's) but also a bunch of other club players as well from B C level clubs.

Don't know about this event, but older daughter (a 26) attended their Futures 26 event this October and she said it was one of the best run clinics she had ever been to.

Also had a older son who played in their showcases; said it was well above average competition and well organized.

This looks like a first year event. Reads somewhat like the AU Futures event but maybe more localized to Maryland?

Congratulations M&D for beating BLC in the Championship Game up at Spooky Nook this weekend. Just over two months until the start of the NGLL. BLC is clearly still one of the top teams.

Congrats to both teams. However, remember small sided indoor games with goalie restarts doesn't come close to simulating an actual full field game.

Lets be honest, the competition was really between M&D and BLC, the LBC and MDU are the top of the second tier and were not really there to win. BLC has not beaten any of the upper tier teams this year and we smoked by Pride in the Fall.... I would say yes BLC is still in the top tier but behind this group:
M&D
Hero's G
Pride
NEMS

Still a good team, but I would not call them a top team, even after they added their new star

I assure you, as someone who's daughter plays BLC often, they are definitely better than Pride or Nems.

BLC would run circles around NEMS, but I guess we will find out.

Pride, LBC, MDU, all those teams could take out an elite team any given day or lose to an inferior opponent.

BLC definitely still above NEMS. Can't really claim they are much better than pride after losing 9-1 to them.
