Who is still holding tryouts in the elite and AAA? My son was cut and now we are scrambling. I’ve heard some have cancelled remaining tryouts. Thanks

Breakers and Koopers take anybody regardless of talent level. I would check there

I would say Madlax might give you a couple thousand off list but your son is still a bit young for their 2026 team.

Smoke and mirrors as well. Impressive turnout but........

They had a majority of the 2025 sidewinders there
They had a majority of the 2026 diamondbacks there
They had kids from their Baltimore team there to fill space
And, they had a ton of people there for a free lacrosse head

Tryouts were mixed age groups the entire time, as a parent you could not really get a grasp for who might be on your sons future team.

After selections I can tell you what the 2026 team might be from top to bottom:
-An attackman who is phenomenal attacking the cage...but will not keep his head up or pass the ball. It will be a turnover if he can't get a shot off, not a pull out and reset.
-A few strong midfielders from various HoCo AAA teams
-An 0-7 Diamondbacks defense
-A great goalie who has been with a different club every year.

Despite True being a non-parent coached team...with Diamondbacks as the core, and a couple other key members of the team...expect daddy ball and politics to be in full swing.

Recycling kids between the same teams is a bold strategy cotton.
Where exactly is this talent coming from to take over Annapolis. Honest question.


AYLC
Diamondbacks
Bay Dogs
PLC
Green Hornets/Swarm
Sidewinders

True is a good program from the little I have seen so far. They look like they care. But I am very interested to see how they are pulling this talent to take over Annapolis.

91 took over Baltimore so it can be done. Good luck True.

Re: Boys 2026 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 08/06/19 07:43 PM

I’m glad someone finally said it the talent at the above programs isn’t Elite.
Better luck taking over Rockfish and Sidewinders, Breakers or Koopers

Some people just wish they were Elite

True blows at all age levels.
Mergers don’t make you elite.
Enjoy the Aloha tournaments.

Coach Cotton is with south river and I did not see any south river kids at True tryouts. True has non parent coaches and will take over. Daddy ball in Annapolis will end.

True and 3D will never make successful runs in MD. There is no need for an outside club in the hotbed areas. How is 3d working? These are lacrosse companies based in the midwest and west. These are not clubs. The coaches come and go.

garbage. I think I know way too much about 11 year old goalies. I assume this is the kid who was on the Hawks this year. A good goalie but an even better kid. He was on the Diamondbacks the year before. Rumor has it that the Hawks former goalie is dropping back down to the team - which probably leaves this kid looking for a new team. If the tryouts was diamondbacks heavy, he was probably there.

I assume the Hawks will have a good goalie. If “rocket”, their old goalie, comes back that leaves last years goalie looking for a team. He is good enough to make most teams. Team 91 had two goalies - one I thought was strong. BLC has a strong kid. Folks like the AYLC goalie but I haven’t seen enough to have an opinion. He might be great.

Overall, goalie at this age is still a work in progress.

That is not correct at all. I am the Looney's goalie's (Reid) dad. Rocket and Reid both played well at that tournament and had a lot of fun playing with that team. In the Hawks game, Rocket gave up fewer goals in his half than Reid did. Rocket and Reid are both working hard to get better, which is what its all about at their age.

I stop by here from time to time to get info on other teams and movement of players. Seeing grown ups (if that's what they are) trashing 11-year old kids is distressing although, sadly, not surprising.

I have yet to meet a crappy enough parent to trash talk a goalie, when in reality, if a goalie is seeing a ball, it’s because his defense didn't get the job done and he’s the last one between the ball and that cage.
If a parent is trashing a goalie, then that kid should be put it in the goal for a practice. I bet that tune gets changed.

Good luck to all of the 26 goalies this season.

The best goalie at Napptown was the AYLC kid who played out of his mind against ALL IN - not a half but the whole game

Mostly true but Crabs beat Mesa 26 not that that means anything. Rough riders from PA beat crabs. Rough riders had solid wins this year and what not!

70% of these “elite” 6th graders won’t be playing lacrosse by their junior year in high school. Don’t believe me? Write this post number down.

Correct. Most of these kids won’t have the size/speed/strength/skill to play significant minutes at MIAA/IAC/WCAC level by the time they are high school juniors. Genetics is the ultimate decider.

Enjoy your time in the sun while you can. At least you will be able to look back on your sons youth lax years as his athletic pinnacle.

Re: Boys 2026 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 08/11/19 09:31 PM

So let me get this straight, you brought your kid to a tryout, for a team that went undefeated this year, yet the tryouts weren’t good enough for your superstar, nor did they have enough people there for your liking, and every kid from that undefeated team was likely there (so you know they are good), yet they weren’t good enough. Ok. Got it.

There were only 2 or 3 kids there that were not wearing Hawks gear that looked like they should have been there. That team is on another level, without being coached, they were calling plays during the scrimmage. My kid will not be back, they are really good, and he had an outing where nerves got the best of him and he did not feel like he was good enough. He wanted to see what that team was about, they work hard.

Well we all knew the Hawks parents response of “your kid isn’t good enough” was coming. If anything, they are predictable.
Have a great season Hawks parents. I hope you win every game, because I fear what will happen when you lose, and then lose again. Different breed of parents down there, and your stench keeps getting worse.

I think there were more like 10 non Hawks gear wearing kids. Whether or not a kid makes it or not, getting out there to test themselves against other kids is a good experience for them.

The problem with the Hawks now is if you make the team this year as a new kid, your kid will see significant time on the bench as they have at least 16 kids that played last year that will be ahead of your kid.

There were kids out there that will make the team, and others that wont but maybe should/could have made the team. With a good team coming off of a good season, I am sure that the coaches arent looking to rock the boat too much with the roster.

I dont think that is true. It might be that way to start, but if the new kid is a better player, they will get their opportunities.

New kids joined the team last year and took playing time over kids that had been there. So your statement is not accurate.

Just heard some issues going on at Diamondbacks. Most of the starters / talent have signed with True Annapolis and elsewhere, including the previous coach's kid. It appears the club was blindsided by this. Looking like the team will have to play down this coming year as they will have less talent to compete.

I'm sure someone will start another club team tonight and then they can say they will combine teams with them.

I think there were more like 10 non Hawks gear wearing kids. Whether or not a kid makes it or not, getting out there to test themselves against other kids is a good experience for them.

You know what you get when you combine Diamondback kids and coaches at TRUE.............. 0-9 in HOCO

Can someone answer this question? Curious, what will be different with them. You can put lipstick on a pig and it's still a pig. I'm generally interested in what they will do to bridge the talent gap from what is out there. This is not a knock on them or anyone.

Now way True plays elite, their team is unproven, just like AYLC last year and look where they are now. Lost 5-6 kids and struggling to field a competitive team. Just the new flavor of the week and will fade out as they always do.

South River only has 2024 and 25.

Younger teams coaches ghosted their team for the Hawks like the Colts leaving but only coaches kids on the team bus leaving.

2024 HC son is trying out for the hawks, so that team looks done.

Hawks dominating as expected.

And where did you play your college lacrosse? Those CCBC teams used to be stacked in the late 90s/early 2000’s. I can’t really speak for how good they are now, as I haven’t followed them at all.

Elite players usually aren’t great coaches. And great coaches were rarely elite players.

Yes I did. 20 years ago when most of these coaches were probably playing their college lacrosse, the sport was very different. A community college in a heavy lacrosse area like Maryland probably had a better team than most colleges around the country. People used to come from all over to play a year or two at CCBC and then try to transfer out to bigger schools. I’ll stand by my statement.

And where did you play your college lacrosse?

This isnt wrong. Club teams and recruiting wasnt nearly what it is nowadays obviously so kids often got overlooked. A year at CC often helped kids move on to bigger and better things.

The only person touting that their team is the best is Team91 dad. I haven’t seen one Hawks comment on being the best, but maybe I missed it somewhere in the posts about 91 being the best 26 team in the area

Heard Diamondbacks will be playing down under Greenhornets. They have rescinded offers made to their starters that went to True.

Re: Boys 2026 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 08/15/19 06:43 PM

They had too many kids (24) and had some challenges playing all of them. I heard they had a big attack kid that joined last year from the Canons. The kid could take on two to three defenders and still score, but the coach barely used him during HOCO as he was playing favorites.

They started winning at the summer tournaments as some of the kids on the team improved as well as giving that big kid significant playing time. From what I was told, in most of the games he was double teamed a lot and that created opportunities for the other attack kids to score with no defenders on them.

Maybe the big lefty attack that went to 91 that we’ve heard about several times.

They started winning at the summer tournaments as some of the kids on the team improved as well as giving that big kid significant playing time. From what I was told, in most of the games he was double teamed a lot and that created opportunities for the other attack kids to score with no defenders on them.


You have no clue what so ever

First off he starts and hardly came off the field
Second, the coach plays the best kids period. This isnt rec ball where everyone gets a turn
Third, started winning at summer???? Hawks went 42-0 going back to last September
Lastly, too many kids please. The team has depth and any kid can leave and go start for any club in MD.

FACTS!!

Re: Boys 2026 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 08/16/19 01:21 PM

I agree with you. The diamondbacks coach took on a lot of Rockfish kids last year to the displeasure of the parents that had been on the team previously ("so called football parents"). They felt those Rockfish kids were bad and had this ego that their kids were elite and better than the rest of the kids as in the previous year in HOCO they were second in the elite division behind the hawks.

The parents of those kids left the team to True as they felt their kids were all that. The coach was pressured a lot to give them significant playing time over the other kids and they saw the field a lot, but did not make any difference -- hence the 0-7 record.

The 9 kids can go to True and I believe it's going to be the same results.

Odd that no one knows who this big stud lefty attack is, when a player like that would stick out and every dad in the 2026 division who chimes in on this board would know who it is. So where did he come from? Who is he? Or is this like a Big Foot kind of deal? People say he exists, but does he really?

Trust me you will find out soon enough about 91. Really not a weak spot on the team. As far as FCA players at other tryouts?? Who cares!! Do they really have any talent anyone would want?? Played them twice and not impressed. FCA and Crabs time has come and gone.

Re: Boys 2026 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 08/16/19 02:57 PM

First of all the kid coming from the cannons only started that one game because the other attackmen were sick and they had no choice but to put him. Secondly diamondbacks did take to many players the coach was pressured by the rockfish parents. Lastly he didn't get a lot of playing time for example in the FCA game he only got 35 seconds! Oh and by the way I think me a diamondback parent would know more about him than a 91 dad. I will be on the sidelines bayhawks hat. Hope that stud attackmen works out for you.

True wont be any better than diamondbacks. I know this because one of the coaches on diamondbacks has left to True. This is Dave Daniels and all of the football kids on diamondbacks with a couple of kids from different club teams that probably wont make a difference. I have good one what do you get with Dave Daniels and True Daddy Ball.

Apparently they made a lot of changes and upgraded their attack and midfield. My guess is what you are seeing are those that didn't make the team. There defense is solid so if they added some offensive weapons that will be improved.

Mr. Anonymous what you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it.

Just because someone really wants this answer to feel good about themselves, the answer is PLC from 2 years ago. The Hawks were a different team then, they either cut or lost players and gained atleast 6 at the beginning of the 2018/2019 season. Hawks 2018/2019 were the best team around. There is no denying that. Anyone who tries to deny that or put claims against that is just seething with jealousy. They played teams from all over and proved time and time again, they were the team to beat- yet no one did. That 2018/2019 team was simply incredible. Let them have their year. No one can take that from them. Don’t understand why people are even trying.

True is a waste of time, save your money diamondbacks 2.0, 0-7 in hoco.

Anybody know about diamondbacks heard they wont have a team neither will the 2025 diamondbacks. Heard the kids went to true 10 kids, sidewinders a little bit, and some to aylc (the goalie and a defender). I saw a kid from diamondbacks at Bethesda tryouts he looked really good. I think if he gets the deal he might accept

Email the directors and ask. You have a better chance of getting a straight answer. But here is my 2¢ since you didn’t ask for it. Too many clubs. Talent dilutes. Clubs fold. Unfortunately it is now the norm. Diamondbacks is probably gone thanks to yet another club starting up, and in two years time, True will be folding teams as well. Just like Eastside, just like Peninsula.
It’s a shame for the players, because this is all about the parents and their egos, not the kids, especially at 2025,26,27 and 28 levels. Here’s some advice, don’t sink $2K into a new club that has no roots. Stick to the clubs that have been around for longer than 10 years, that have solid recruiting in place for the high school teams, that have history.

Let's talk some lacrosse instead of taking jabs at teams, players and parents. What teams are gong to make up the Elite Hoco bracket this year and what ones will be going AAA. This is a sincere question. Not trolling. Is anyone going to move up or down. Very curious on people's thoughts.

I wouldn't expect a whole lot of changes. Maybe Next level or VLC take the Diamondbacks spot in Elite? Sidewinders move up to AAA and 3D drops down to AA? It probably depends where they put True.

I'll take a crack at it :

Elite -

Hawks
91
Looneys
Bethesda
Madlax
FCA
Next Level
VLC

AAA -

Crabs
Roughriders
3d Virginia
Darkhorse
True
Green Hornets
Sidewinders
FLC

This one looks good. I will be very interested to see if Crabs go down to AAA, thought they had to be locked in to Elite because of the brand name. AYLC not mentioned despite being in AAA championship last year. Do they go up or down?
Anyone have information on the league on Saturdays at St Pauls. MPL Is that a quality

So going 1-5 with your only win against the 0-6 team who folded in the offseason is reason to STAY in Elite ?

They could have stayed the same and wouldnt deserve to be there. They won over the summer when playing down against AAA level teams and couldnt even beat all of them.

They did lose players, and probably gained a few holdbacks from their 2025 team as is their M.O. You should have to prove you belong in Elite based on what you did the previous year. Thats why Next Level ( who won AAA ) and VLC should go up to Elite. Sidewinders and FLC were the top of AA and should have the chance to compete at AAA this year.

One losing season in elite doesn't constitute a move down. Look at 91. And if they did acquire reclassed kids, then even more reason to stay put. Plus Daddy Crab won’t allow AAA.

If you believe what you read here....they've lost enough talent to Hawks and True to not be competitive at AAA this coming year.

The HOCO league is set by a competition committee made up of the top clubs. This is not determined by previous record or summer results. First, last year's 91 MD team one won game in three years and remained elite due to the club owner. VLC is owned by Crabs and will not put the team in Elite and Crabs in AAA that just won't happen. Elite is a marketing hammerhead and messing with it effects $$$. The other clubs will never allow one club to have two teams in Elite.

Understand politics are in play, but...if the best 8 teams are in it, Crabs is not and VLC is. Crabs did not play elite in the 25 division last year.

Re: Boys 2026 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 08/22/19 09:58 PM

I think the parents and the owners care more about division placement than the boys. My son plays for VLC and he and his teammates had a blast playing in AAA last spring and winning most of their games. They have added some good new players, and have matured as a team, and have an elite level goalie, so I think that they would do fine in Elite next spring if they are put there. But the competition in AAA is not bad either and I would be fine staying there, maybe winning the division, and then moving up to Elite after another year or two of recruiting upgrades. Nobody has earned a D1 scholarship by peaking in 6th grade!

A few of them actually do. Offers are from Get, Your, F*%#ing, Rumors, Straight. And when you do, you’ll realize these boys were all born in 2007/2008 and work their tails off to succeed. There’s no secrets, no middle school hold backs- just good old fashioned talent, size, grit and coaching.

I hope you understand those offers are completely worthless and can be rescinded at any moment for any reason because they are not binding in any way at this age. Yeah it’s a feel good moment when little Johnny gets that D1 offer when he’s 11 years old...until all the boys hit high school, and size and strength start to even out, and it becomes painfully obvious that little Johnny may have peaked too early, and the next thing you know he’s playing D3 at a community college if he’s lucky, but just knows his team would have won states if coach had put him in because he can throw a football over them mountains.

Get real talking about D1 offers to 11 year olds. It’s a win-win for the school. If they’re lucky the kid pans out and was so hyped about his offer at 11 years old that he honors his commitment and attends the university. More likely the kid won’t pan out, and the school will then rescind that offer with the quickness.

What a joke. D1 offers. I can’t laugh at you hard enough.

A few of them actually do. Offers are from Get, Your, F*%#ing, Rumors, Straight. And when you do, you’ll realize these boys were all born in 2007/2008 and work their tails off to succeed. There’s no secrets, no middle school hold backs- just good old fashioned talent, size, grit and coaching.


I hope you understand those offers are completely worthless and can be rescinded at any moment for any reason because they are not binding in any way at this age. Yeah it’s a feel good moment when little Johnny gets that D1 offer when he’s 11 years old...until all the boys hit high school, and size and strength start to even out, and it becomes painfully obvious that little Johnny may have peaked too early, and the next thing you know he’s playing D3 at a community college if he’s lucky, but just knows his team would have won states if coach had put him in because he can throw a football over them mountains.

Get real talking about D1 offers to 11 year olds. It’s a win-win for the school. If they’re lucky the kid pans out and was so hyped about his offer at 11 years old that he honors his commitment and attends the university. More likely the kid won’t pan out, and the school will then rescind that offer with the quickness.

What a joke. D1 offers. I can’t laugh at you hard enough.


Pretty sure you're the joke. There needs to be a sarcasm font.

This must be a comedy routine or some really bad acting. Offers ??? LOL.. Why stop at imaginary college rumor offers..Why not go straight to Pro drafts with a bonus ! That way it will be a great " feel good moment " with money !

Hopefully this is comedy and not a bunch of nitwits arguing over imaginary offers that arent allowed until 11th grade for D1 lax.

Removing the Hawks from the equation so we don't need to hear the arguing about hold backs. Who were the big winners from tryouts. Not DC or VA, just MD 2026 teams. Interested to hear people's thoughts of how things shook out after tryouts and where teams stand.

Hawks are the clear #1 in this division followed by Looney's and 91. After that I think its pretty even but based on what I saw at tryouts this year FCA and 91 seemed to have the most talent; again I am excluding the Hawks. Both had athletic attack and midfield and I think these two team will have the best defenses; big and fast, at the 26 level. I was impressed with both tryouts.

Based on what you saw at tryouts? Stalking, or trying out for every elite team because your kid is that good?
Don’t answer that. It was sarcasm, I know the answer.

Or weekly practices starting in less than 2 weeks. Fall tournaments. Winter weekly practices, outside. Practice 3X/ week starting on February. Early spring tournaments. Spring league against top competition. 4 top summer tournaments. Combine that with a team of excellent lacrosse players and great coaching, that's the equation. You end up with a dominant team of players that believe in themselves, their teammates and their coaches.

Me too. So tired of hearing excuses on why they didnt hold their kid back and get an advantage, stop making excuses ...Hold Him Back !

Is there any lacrosse coach in MD who did not hold their kid back?? I know of no one who had a player in the private schools. NOT ONE !

Hawks are the clear #1 in this division followed by Looney's and 91. After that I think its pretty even but based on what I saw at tryouts this year FCA and 91 seemed to have the most talent; again I am excluding the Hawks. Both had athletic attack and midfield and I think these two team will have the best defenses; big and fast, at the 26 level. I was impressed with both tryouts.


Looneys and 91 has some really good kids. There are talented kids in the Elite division. Cant wait for the fall tournaments

based on summer play hawks, blc, looneys, diamondbacks, madlax, crabs, 91, aylc, vlc. who will it be this year?


Whoever has the most holdbacks..Very simple equation in MD.. Most Holdbacks= Most Victories


Or weekly practices starting in less than 2 weeks. Fall tournaments. Winter weekly practices, outside. Practice 3X/ week starting on February. Early spring tournaments. Spring league against top competition. 4 top summer tournaments. Combine that with a team of excellent lacrosse players and great coaching, that's the equation. You end up with a dominant team of players that believe in themselves, their teammates and their coaches.


Nope..Only works if you have holdbacks when playing other holdbacks teams. Heavily practiced On age lose out to holdbacks ..

FYI 9/07 birthdays are not holdbacks in Maryland and even if it was.... how on earth is a child born on 9/25 (just throwing that out) at an advantage to someone who was born on 10/2..... you think those 7 days is going to give that kid a holdbacks advantage? grow the heck up.

It doesn't matter what the MD school system or most other states use as the grade cut off date. IT ONLY MATTERS WHAT NY USES!!!!!!

FYI, 5 states use an age cut off date that doesn't fall in August or September.

With all of the complaining you would think that MD was the only one that didn't have the same age cut off as NY.

I agree,, Personally I think they should hold every child back that goes to school. Lets give everyone that chance..or better yet,,, Why go by grade, let anyone who wants play down a grade. Now that would be fair. playing up is for wimps

If you don't like the rules there are plenty of baseball teams in the area that would be more then willing to take your kid. So unless you want to pick a different sport, get used to it or hold your kid back a year. Either way, it's happening and nothing is changing so look at a way to embrace it instead of whine about it.

Season starts next weekend. Everyone getting excited? What happens with 91's new stud attackman. Do Looney's look to step back or forward and catch Hawks. Crabs and FCA still playing second fiddle to the the other 2 big boys. Where does AYLC go, what happens to PLC and everyone looking at True Annapolis, did they get a 2026 goalie? Does BLC step up. Who's moving up and down in AAA and Elite. What is Madlax going to do to get better?

He isn’t a stud, but his dad thinks he is
No one is touching Hawks. They are the best in the whole wide world.
Crabs will either play down a division to rack up wins or will stay in elite with their newly reclassified 2025 players
Who is AYLC?
I thought PLC folded
True Annapolis will play AA
Fall records will predict movement between elite and AAA

Its a sign of the times. Too many club options pop up every year and poach players that force other to scramble. Even the mighty Crabs havent posted rosters yet ( 1st time ever I can recall ) because they are scrambling too.

You are way too obsessed if you are checking websites and rosters of a team you are not a part of. No Crabs or VLC rosters are posted for any age group. All the players have been notified and have copies of the rosters of the players on the teams they are a part of. If you needed to know the roster you would have it.

I have never seen rosters for youth. I'm sure they do it at the high school ages for recruiting. You have serious issues if you are checking 2026 rosters

They 100% had the roster posted prior to the season last year. I know 100% for Crabs because my son was on it. This has nothing to do with talent, just educating you.

It’s coming from team 91 dad, don’t bite. He will go away once they lose their first game of the fall season because too many leaves were falling from the trees.

Classic class of an obsessive parent bitter about his son getting cut from Team 91. It is easier for him to blame team/parents/players than look inward. That might hurt !

My son plays for another club at the 2025 level and I have to say the 91/hawks game last year was a complete sideshow on the part of the 91 parents. The number of parents screaming at their kids and blaming the officials was pretty embarrassing to watch; one guy in particular who son was playing attack was practically coaching him from the sidelines to the point that his son was looking over at him to get direction and not the HC.

Yeah, they will miss out on the chance to line their bags up straight and then lose to everyone else on the field

Haters of 91.... don’t detest on parents just because our kids make yours look silly on the field. It’s ok your kid didn’t make the team. He’s doing great at Crabs!!!

They could have just said you were a bunch of losers and couldn't win a thing last year or even make the championship in HOCO. But you did have nice bag work while taking all those nasty L's.

Reading these comments is flat out depressing. I can only image the heck the kids are put through by these maniacs. My guess is that the kids don't take any enjoyment out of playing the game. I'm sure these posters never strapped up and stepped on the field to play. 100% guarantee. If you did, you would have a different perspective on the game.

Sorry your kid got cut. Have him HIT THE WALL and try again next August. Plenty of rec teams out there to catch on with.

I played at all levels and I would like to agree with you I really would. However in the MD lacrosse scene former players are the biggest maniacs out there. I would submit the Madlax guy and MM of 91 as exhibits A&B to this point.

A completely predictible response. Is anybody else envisioning a pimply teenager sipping a mountain dew smashing his fingers into a keyboard to get out that thoughless response? As for the other actually thoughtful response, I never considered that as I'm not native MD. I guess that is what you get in a hotbed. O'DOYLE RULES!!!

Sounds like something someone with a kid who didn't make a team would say. Practice, practice practice and a little wall ball he'll bounce back next year and make a team. Good luck in rec this spring. Bring him out to some club games so he can see what he needs to do to make one.

Yes. I was attempting some humor there. At least an attempt at something a little more interesting than the normal visceral keyboard smashing and repetitive "your kid must have been cut, hit the wall" replys. Clearly there are some knuckledraggers on here who didn't recognize it for what it was.

My son is a holdback. He made the team. He makes all the teams. He also scores really well on all his tests in school. Mainly because he's a hold back. Decided to give him that advantage both academically and athletically. I also send him to a private school. Better teachers. Just giving him all the advantages that I can. Loving it. Really nothing you can do about it except complain to a deaf ear. Love that too. I'm smiling over here.

Keep in mind guys.... The top middie last year at CHC heading to Ohio State in the Fall.... He didn't play on any elite MD or NY club team as a 5th, 6th, 7th grader, etc. He lived in GA, where any club team he did play for would be considered inferior, certainly 7+ years ago.

My point.... The cream will rise to the top, regardless of the club team your kid plays for now. The middie from CHC moved to Baltimore from Georgia before his junior year in HS and promptly took the starting spot of some kid, who in all likelihood, played on an "elite" club team in Baltimore growing up.

Couldn't agree more with this post. I mean this is 100% spot on.

Let the kids enjoy youth lacrosse and really get a passion for the sport. That passion is what will drive them to hit the wall when nobody is looking (Not Lavar Ball yelling in his ear that he better hit that wall). .

For now, the kids can learn sportsmanship, teamwork, and life lessons while making *gasp* friends on whatever team they are playing on.

Another fact... The Powell brothers didn't grow up in a hotbed, playing alongside some of the best kids in Long Island or MD at the time. They picked up the game in late Elementary School and played in a tiny town in upstate NY. Club lacrosse didn't exist anywhere at the time, but there were certainly better organized rec leagues in Long Island and MD. They overcame this "disadvantage" through love of the game, passion, and commitment to practice when no one was looking. They were also insanely athletic and talented. Let your kid enjoy the ride on whatever team he plays for, chances are, he isn't destined for the Major Leagues. Keep perspective and have fun, it's over before you blink.

Amazing! Positive messages being posted!

Playing College Lacrosse isn't everybody's goal.
Playing professional lacrosse is certainly nobody's goal (let's call a spade a spade, womens professional beach volleyball gets more TV revenue than MLL/PLL/NLL combined and pulls bigger crowds to the venue).

There is a very short window of time we all get to play this game. Enjoy it.

You lost me at Upstate New York not being a hotbed in the 80's / 90's.

It is easy to rise to the top with you look like the CH Middie. He is a superior athlete. Most lacrosse players are 5-8 to 6-0. Most real Blue Chip athletes play football, baseball, BB, hockey, the money sports. That extra year does wonders when your competition is the same size and a year younger in lax. It stinks but holding back works for most players under 6 ft going against other players same size.

West Carthage, NY is very different from West Genessee, Syracuse, etc. For sure in 1985ish with respect to youth lacrosse.

Yes, that his dad (you, aka Lamar Ball), when suggested he let his kid simply enjoy lacrosse, and enjoy the ride yourself, you instead suggest a circus if you want him to have fun. You don't want your kid to have fun in lacrosse? Are you looking for some sort of ROI? Running a P&L on your kid? Your kid can be the first Lax player to sign with BBB. Way to go Dad!

Lacrosse and Hockey are confined to certain areas, however, both are growing. Lacrosse is an incredible game, no matter what level you achieve, high school, D1, D3, club, etc. Great people involved, and ask the elite they're advice..... Enjoy the game and let your kid be a kid.

It is easy to rise to the top with you look like the CH Middie. He is a superior athlete. Most lacrosse players are 5-8 to 6-0. Most real Blue Chip athletes play football, baseball, BB, hockey, the money sports. That extra year does wonders when your competition is the same size and a year younger in lax. It stinks but holding back works for most players under 6 ft going against other players same size.



He's not successful simply being a superior athlete, he still has to work. The point is, irregardless of where he played when he was 10, in time, he developed into what he was meant to be. Let things happen, and what will be, will be. Most real blue chip athletes play football, baseball, and basketball because lacrosse and hockey aren't played nationwide. Lacrosse and Hockey are confined to certain areas, however, both are growing. Lacrosse is an incredible game, no matter what level you achieve, high school, D1, D3, club, etc. Great people involved, and ask the elite they're advice..... Enjoy the game and let your kid be a kid.


So what you're saying is the guy HIT THE WALL


Hit the wall, played other sports, etc.

Can I eliminate my son as a "real blue chip athlete" if he plays soccer and lacrosse. It's not on your list. I need to be sure on how to build my "real blue chip athlete" according to an anonymous source.

You are correct, my mistake, soccer should have been included as well. My response referenced the Blue Chip Athletes (Money Sports) from the original response to the post. Great that your kid is a multisport athlete, how it should be at 10 years old.

You can always find them in the penalty box. This isnt football, you want to run full speed from 10 yards away and blast a kid then go play football. Fastest game on two feet with skill and precision stick work. That's lacrosse. You MD guys think you can bully teams all the time

Soccer players tend to use intelligence and have a higher sports IQ whereas football players are going to rely more on athleticism. It's not a tough debate. To each his own. Good teams will have a mix of both types of athletes.

This is 2026? Kids who play football and lacrosse or lacrosse and almost any other sport are fine. There is not noticeable difference on a lacrosse field between kids who play football and those who choose not to other than when you hear the stunad parent on the sideline giving bad advice because he never played lacrosse.

Might be, Recently heard a D1 coach talk about recruiting along with some general lacrosse stuff. He said he gets lots of emails/videos and only reads the first paragraph and maybe watch first 20 seconds of video, His only exception was when he saw they played football in HS too. Then he read and watched much more.

My son’s team requires a helmet, but they are not part of the dues we pay. Is it normal for helmets to be excluded from club dues?

I would say yes it is normal, because returning players that can reuse their helmets would not need to pay dues each year for a helmet they already own. New players would be required to purchase the helmet if your club requires a specific helmet, so it would be considered an additional expense, and not part of the yearly dues.

not unusual. Your guy will be able to wear that helmet for several years. Better to only pay that extra $250 once as opposed to them building into fee and pocketing the extra $ in years that you don't get a new helmet

Most club teams provide helmet and uniform. If you are returning player, the club gets to pocket the extra money as long as helmet stays the same.

If they're looking for a goalie they are not Elite or AAA. THey might be B.

You cannot compete as a team in this area at a high level without a good goalie.

One thing is for sure. The rumors were put to bed about their 2025 goalie so we know he can't be playing 2026 unless that father is a complete liar who ran his mouth out of turn.

Madlax didn’t want to play Hawks. They cried. Roughriders gets to pick up their slack. It will be a learning experience.

That is surprising. MadLax was riding high at the end of the summer and then picked up some good players from BLC. Why would they not want to take on the Hawks? Is it known for sure that MadLax requested the change?

Mad lax almost broke top 15 last year so this could be their BO year to maybe 12? In MD they ranked behind hawks and then other quality teams like looneys, blc, diamondbacks but they did beat 91md at Hershey so maybe mad lax can be 5 in hoco 91md was 2 & 4at Hershey I think but they got that lefty.

There are lots of dense posts on here but this one is up there. Are you going to war? Will the kids be armed? Is that what you guys do in MD try and bully teams?

Why dont we let 11 year olds have some fun playing lacrosse. Dont take that away from them

That is because club has been diluted with rec level teams calling themselves a club team. Proof of this is the forty 2026 club teams in 5 divisions of the HOCO spring league.

Club should go back to just High School teams... The money grab and claim that the talent is better, the facilities are better, and the player development is better is all BS... It's all a pack of lies and no one cares who won a 6th grade HOCO championship or some other dense tournament.....Parents are getting smarter and the lies these club directors are telling people is all bunk....

100% agree. Even the most Elite teams don't develop kids either. Just recruit best talent each year.

How many of these elite level teams are ok with their players being elite level multi sport athletes? How many of these kids can juggle playing elite level club lacrosse and another elite level club sport? It seems like kids are so specialized now...limiting themselves to one sport early on. Is that a good thing or a bad thing?

Jealous and envious it is not your son. Mine was looked at during Regular season, not summer. D1 coach walks by and says that kid looks good. Pretty sure that is code for " commitment letter coming " .

Coaches love having multi-sport athletes - lax is spring and summer and that's in-season

Football and wrestling dont interfere with lacrosse because they are fall and winter sports.

Any high school or college coach always asks about grades first and what other sports do you play

My son plays on one of the Elite HOCO teams. I believe every kid on the team plays either soccer or football in the fall. Most play basketball and a few wrestle in the winter. None are Lacrosse only.

That is so overstated today. There is no way a kid can play for two elite clubs in today's environment. Sure kids play other sports but usually as a hobby or so they can check the box as a two sport athlete. The kids serious about football, basketball, wrestling all do that year round as well. A kid can be elite in two sports but hard to play for two elite teams. In HS it works to just play for the HS football or wrestling team

Works for wrestling and football and I have seen to an extent hockey. It will not work with hoops as their elite level AAU stuff runs in the Spring and Summer and soccer, well, that depends on your value to the lax coach and if he's going to let you miss practices and games for it. But if you try to play elite soccer and lax you are going to have to sacrifice on one of them and let people down. From experience.

That is so overstated today. There is no way a kid can play for two elite clubs in today's environment. Sure kids play other sports but usually as a hobby or so they can check the box as a two sport athlete. The kids serious about football, basketball, wrestling all do that year round as well. A kid can be elite in two sports but hard to play for two elite teams. In HS it works to just play for the HS football or wrestling team


This is kind of what I was asking. I know a lot of kids play 2 or more sports...but how many of them are able to juggle it at the elite level in each sport? Is it even possible in today’s youth sports with the level of commitment that is required to play elite level anything?

We sat down and made the decision that if we are really going to pay the money and pursue lacrosse at an Elite level then we would settle down on soccer and other sports. For example. There is a large tournament this weekend in AA county his soccer team is in. He has practice this weekend for lax. We let his soccer coach know that even though it is soccer season, we will not be attending any games that fall during his lax practice times. Obviously the opposite would be to tell his lax coach he would need to miss practice to go to soccer. Either way you are letting someone down and I am not sure how to juggle it properly without just fully committing to one. We all hear the encouraging other sports theory from coaches. That also comes with the caveat we will encourage another kid to step up and take your kids spot when he isn't at practice or doesn't know the plays. Hope this helped a bit

Works for wrestling and football and I have seen to an extent hockey. It will not work with hoops as their elite level AAU stuff runs in the Spring and Summer and soccer, well, that depends on your value to the lax coach and if he's going to let you miss practices and games for it. But if you try to play elite soccer and lax you are going to have to sacrifice on one of them and let people down. From experience.


Pretty spot on. Elite soccer is year round, Probably the worst sport to have another sport along with. If you say you can miss a game or practice on a elite soccer team, you arent playing real elite soccer.

At High School level it is almost impossible to play more than club lacrosse . You can play other sports for your High School team during season and have fun, but that is about it.

This is simple - the kids are in 6th grade and they should be playing multiple sports. No kid should be specializing at this age.

HIghly competitive wrestling is also year round with a tournament just about every weekend. I know those who say they should play multiple sports are correct but we are talking about higher level elite sports. It is literally impossible to play two sports at that level. Kids need to pick a primary sport and all others are basically a hobby. If you are lucky you may even be able to wedge in a ski trip or beach vacation. Anyone who claims different is not playing on an elite team.

Re: Boys 2026 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 10/11/19 12:13 AM

My son plays elite level soccer, but he does not play elite level lacrosse. That decision was easy for us because he is an excellent soccer player, but he’s not a good enough lacrosse player to play elite level at this point. Even if he was though, there’s no way we would be able to swing both. He plays lacrosse on one of those rec turned “club” teams at HOCO you guys all despise, basically to have fun, stay in shape, and be with his friends.

I was not a lacrosse player, but I really enjoy watching them play, even if it’s not at the elite level. It’s fast and physical, and it beats the heck out of watching baseball...

""rec turned “club” teams at HOCO you guys all despise, basically to have fun, stay in shape, and be with his friends""

My son plays elite only not some rec scub team. , this is about playing at elite level , not playing at Fun level, staying in shape is for off season with his personal speed trainer, season is about getting elite lax skills, and being with friends?? Really ? He can make friends later while playing D1 lacrosse. Keep it real !

Umm... we're talking about 11 and 12 year old kids who haven't hit puberty yet. Enjoy the fun now, save the intensity for later on. This is the best age.

Interesting rankings.

Arden is too high, but I assume that the list is based on scores and I think they had a decent summer. Of course they dont exist anymore at 2026 do they?

Who are the Boston Kings?

Team 91 MD and Looneys belong somewhere on this list.

Madlax should be higher

Top 1/4 looks pretty accurate. The rest is nearly impossible to get right.

Boston Kings?

My son played for Arden so I am biased. we had quality wins like against bbl. looneys and hawks are definitely better in hoco, but we are top 15 for sure with looneys and blc in front of us. get real that tommynickers are top 15. who are they? name a quality win of them, they wouldnt be top 5 in hoco. we could not touch the top 3 because they have way more athletes. who is boston kings? I think last year rank should be hawks, tiger, laxachusset, sweetlax, evolve, looneys, eclipse, express, bethesda, kings fine, bbl, Arden. how am i wrong?

looneys was #2 in hoco and had good wins. they got close on hawks and beat them the year before in hoco final so they should be top 6. bethesda is #3 in Maryland. bethesda held strong at nlf beating 91 long island and we went overtime with express, we got beten bad by hawks and tigers at nlf but they played in the finals and like out chances against laxachusetts. know way 2ways, fca, towersman should be in them spots. ok bbl should be 6 and eclipse 7 and who cares on last year anywhat

Like it or not if they are taking this from summer tournaments. AYLC wins over FCA and Looneys most likely put them where they are and knocked Looneys out. Those are 2 good wins and again, if this is based off Summer alone

These rankings are way off to say the least. I do think this is high for FCA and Looneys and 91 should be on this list. All three of these teams have improved this off season but the hawks are clearly the team to beat.

Pretty sure no one ever doubted. That’s hard to do when Hawks parents keep feeling the need to remind the human race they are 546-0. We just don’t need to keep hearing it. That’s the issue. Congratulations on your #1 ranking. Enjoy your 6th grade accolade. It’s the first question they ask on recruiting questionnaires, what was your 6th grade record and ranking, so it’s good you have that to put down.

Looneys did not play in the HOCO final against the Hawks in 2018. Hawks played the Diamondbacks and won in 2018. Looneys were only in the final this year and they lost. Hawks played Bethesda in 2017 and lost.

They regrouped and added a ton of talent. Last year they were a combined 26/27 because a lot left. New coaching staff and players. Expect them to be pushing Elite by next year
