Another dominant weekend for Heros. It doesn't look like anyone is going to catch them this year, i thought M&D would have gotten stronger.

Yes, Heros looks great now, but the other girls will catch up over the next few years.

Are any clubs besides M&D collecting money for the summer season ? I am curious how clubs are handling the wait and see pattern for the summer season. Are any clubs offering refunds or credits for the spring season that now seems to be completely canceled ? I am not advocating one way or another - I'm just curious what other clubs (heros/coppermine/Skywalkers/MD United/hoco) are doing. AS this virus lingers longer and longer it seems possible summer won't even be played. Even if the lacrosse clubs and tournament directors want to play - the facilities and schools may not be open or available. I'm hearing of colleges beginning to close/cancel summer activities. There may not be fields to play on. I don't know how prudent paying for summer lacrosse is at this point - maybe a month from now we will know more. I'm just curious to see how it is being handled in different clubs.

Any information is appreciated.

I can't speak for other clubs but I would follow professional sports. Each day that goes by is at least 30-45 days that pro seasons get pushed out. That would mean that if we got the ok to open things up pro baseball and other summer sports would not even start until beginning or end of June. I also think kids sports are lowest on the priority list when things open up and our new world will be more controlled when it comes to events. That said, I understand where the club directors are coming from. I would not pay them a cent unless the clearly define how or if they credit/refund the players.

Tournaments rarely refund clubs. At most they credit some of the tuition towards future tournaments. Payments made in the summer are normally used to pay fall touranments. Clubs are required to sign up for fall tournaments in Jan, Feb, March. It is a very tough situation all around. If you have committed to a club for the year you have committed to paying the tuition for the year.

Commitment is a 2 way street. Parents are paying for a service, which at this point has not been delivered. So if parents have the resources to help keep their clubs afloat, great. But to think that parents should feel obligated to pay more for future services when they haven't received what they are do and have paid for is a bit much. There are many other club options out there and the ones that handle this situation correctly will be just fine.

Yes other clubs are.

It's going to be interesting to see how the first tournaments go. Some of the girls I thought would have been practicing like crazy over Covid didn't, others did. Seems to be a common thread and happened on my son's team as well. I've spoken to other parents who say it's the same on their teams as well.

What say you?

Covid upended lives, just enjoy the fact the kids get to play, an not worry so much about how tournaments are going to go. I could care less if my kids teams lose this summer. Just to be back out there is huge for them.

I was very pleased to see that our club chose to be safe and go by State guidelines. These are middle school kids -no recruiting . Yes Integrity and MDU kids were illegally practicing but that should tell you all you need to know.

What are the other 26 teams doing re: tryouts? My daughter's team is having tryouts, then playing a tournament then announcing who made the team. It's ironic because in the past they would put the hard sell on committing after tryouts now they want you to be in limbo for a few weeks. It also makes trying out for backup squads interesting if they are not doing the same thing.

Is this happening elsewhere?

Not much choice when tourneys are into August . The hard sell clubs are doing early tryouts to lock in the money from the sucker parents. MDU/Integrity .

My daughter tried out for both Mdu and integrity in the past. Mdu put the hard sell on, integrity didn’t. It was a big turnoff.

Speaking of which, heard MDU and Integrity played yesterday with Integrity winning in a close one. They are in the same bracket again this weekend with M and D and others. Will be nice just to see them play again.

I have a boy and girl in club lax, from my experience the club sets the tone but the coach makes or breaks the deal. Glad it worked out.

Apparently 45 or so girls at the Integrity tryouts. Some girls from MD United and CCLax, not sure how competitive the turnout was but everything I've heard about the Integrity coach has been positive. Seems like a great coach.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2026 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 07/21/20 03:21 PM
I don't get why so many girls would go to MD United when so many their girls are looking elsewhere. They had 5 tryout at M&D last year, 2 at integrity etc etc.

I would expect them to tryout for LBC since they are close and have a better team/foundation. LBC seems like the perfect opportunity if you're a good player considering they have a short bench and are already a good A level team.

Maybe they don't like the bridge?
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2026 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 07/21/20 10:02 PM
I heard (totally unsubstantiated rumor) that LBC is moving practice to Berlin next year. Can anyone from LBC confirm?
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2026 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 07/21/20 10:27 PM
I can confirm that this is not true. LBC has practiced in Easton or QA County and will continue to do so. They have a couple practices a year at DE Turf .

How many girls are on the LBC 26 roster? Seemed like they had a really good team with a small bench.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2026 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 08/06/20 07:42 PM
Not sure but LBC usually has small benches to keep the teams competitive and the girls get to play a lot.

LBC is a true not for profit. They only pay non parent coaches. The club doesn't put 20-23 players on a team to just make money like all of the other clubs.

In the fall most of the practices were at QA Turf and one at DE Turf. I was told in the spring they will be in QA and Easton. Some of the teams have had girls from Berlin since LBC started.

You might be right but can’t be at the top of you playing b , c or d division each tourney. Hero, M&D and YJ play the best each weekend. Not like some of these teams that play weak tournies and duck the good ones each week. Eagle stix doesn’t belong anywhere near the top of this list.

I guess the teams are closer in skills than I thought. If the hero’s B team is beating the No. 2 ranked team, M&D, on a regular basis.

Straight from the club director of LBC

You both should be ashamed of yourselves. When your children grow up and have zero moral compass you will know exactly where it came from. LBC has been very good to you during your darkest times as well as both of your daugthers. In the summer you told Smitty you were 100% committed to playing and said you wanted to be “the ONLY Goalie”. You have now left 18 girls in the middle of the year high and dry. It takes a special kind of family to do this.



No need to tell anyone on the team or on LBC what this says because I will forward it so there is no question or misunderstandings.



Karma is tough and you will get what you deserve unfortunately you have now put your daughter in the same position to be judged by your poor parenting. She has to go to school with a handful of girls that she committed to and has now left. Living with the consequences of your actions can be tough. I can’t imagine any parent or player on this team would think it is morally acceptable to leave your team mid-season because “you found a better opportunity”.



A wise person told me “unhappy people go elsewhere looking for something better but they have to take themselves with them so they are never happy” . You both should be ashamed of yourselves.

Heard they lost one to Hero's but that was it. They must be doing something right if the other clubs want their goalies so bad.

What will destroy LBC?
A 2026 goalie who is going to play for a B team because her parents were flattered by Altig. She promised her to be the 26 goalie for high school. The 2026 LBC team will continue to beat MDU by 10 goals a game. They have a field player who is a better goalie than the one they lost.

I assume by the self-righteous tone in this email that LBC will not be trying to recruit a goalie from another club. If they do, then these words ring pretty hollow.

Ahhh....LBC chiming in. Director or parent of child who is the field player and a better goalie who is also a coach of the 26 team? One day LBC will understand that player development is more important than winning games. I do believe that Maryland United 2026 team went to the championship game at the final fall tournament while LBC 2026's went home. The 2026 goalie also has a sister who is a 2025 field player that switched this year from LBC to Maryland United and Maryland United beat LBC in the championship game. There's no need to be flattered by a coach, maybe if LBC held up to their end of the bargain by having goalie coaching at every practice the goalie would still be there.

I don't know why anyone would want to be associated with this Club. My daughter has played against one of their teams and I was disgusted by the behavior of their coaches on the sidelines, along with parents behavior in the benches. Not an organization I would want to be connected to. It's not just about "winning"...the older these girls get, they will eventually (hopefully) see the big picture.

good point. For an organization so focused on winning, you would think that they would win more.

My daughter plays for this club and I don't see this club only "focused on winning" ever. Actually the coaches and directors constantly tell parents and players it isn't about winning it is about growing as players. My understanding is the families who left in the past left because they said this coach wasn't trying to win. Every fall practice I was able to attend I saw at least one coach working with the goalies so not sure who said they didn't get goalie coaching.

You may want to rethink who your daughter is playing for. Beyond embarrassing that the Club director (or coach) would behave in this manner. Curious to how quick they do damage control. I'd be mortified that this was made so public.

Appalling? I would think it is pretty appalling to commit to a team for the year. Tell them you don't want any other goalies and then quit. I can't think of anything more appalling to these teammates. It sounds like the letter is pretty accurate if it is true.

LBC has promised goalie coaching over and over and that’s why these goalies leave. Having an Elementary gym teacher who knows very little about goalie position is not cutting it. The goalie parents pay over $50 an hour to have someone other than an LBC coach train them. Not because they want too but because they have too. LBC keeps making the same mistake over and over. Hard headed or notIntelligent.

Please explain your comment? All these girls that play for a club team commit to play for them for the year - you make a committment.Period. If you play for that year and are unhappy THEN you move on and try to make it on to another team when tryouts are at the end of the Summer. NOT during the year.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2026 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 01/06/21 07:44 PM
They only have one real goalie for 3 teams. A 26 goalie who plays for the 25 b team. The goalie who has been playing for the 25 a team is a field hockey player that is playing to help them out until her travel field hockey team starts. To continue to say she wanted to be the only goalie, there are no other goalies. Goalies did come to tryouts but ultimately decided this was not the team for them. They were not cut, they didn't come back. They are the only club team with no goalie coaching.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2026 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 01/06/21 07:49 PM
Goalies are a difference maker/key players. If you don't get what you are expecting/promised it's time to move on. This director is very selfish!!
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2026 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 01/06/21 08:02 PM
Of course the timing of tryouts are rigged so you have little time to move to another team. The clubs not allowing time for their players to tryout will inevitably lead to this type of poaching. Loyalty seems to be a one way street with most clubs.

Commitments go both ways. If the family was promised dedicated positional training and it wasn't delivered in full, then i have no issue with them leaving even if it during a break in the season.

Also, LBC was having mid-season tryouts for their 27s last weekend, so they understand (and in fact encourage) some kids make moves between fall and spring.

The saddest part about this entire situation is that the main objective of being about the players and the girls well being is completely lost. In 7th grade, the girls should be learning and developing a deeper love and passion for the sport, not being discussed as just a pawn or object in a bigger scheme or drama. It’s infuriating that adult/club politics and emotions rob players of these opportunities. As a coach or leader, it’s your responsibility to inspire these kids, not bully parents and trash everyone you don’t like. They need to grow the heck up and actually do their darn jobs and work their jerks off for the kids and stop putting so much effort into running their mouth

Disclaimer, don’t have a daughter that plays for LBC, nor do I coach there, however am familiar with the organization. As a business professional, emails are for the sole intention of the recipient and never should be shared with others unless for lawful purposes, so shame on the parents who posted this. Conversely, travel lacrosse is a business, and can be shark infested at times. There is a lot of bad blood between MDU and LBC based on player movement, therefore winning does lead to a sense of entitlement and might take priority for some more than others.

Player position training is important, especially in middle school with girls’ bodies changing/growing and the need for muscle memory to prevail over changing gross motor skills. MDU has 3-4 goalie coaches and is well organized. Can you blame a parent for wanting their child to be exposed to specific training?
Yes, the goalie is leaving her team “high and dry” and there is a cost for that which the player cannot fathom at her age. Bottom line is “be classy” on both ends. Directors need to be pragmatic and professional as it’s a business (QTIP-quit taking it personal) and parents should understand that their decisions for their children might affect them more than they know (don’t be helicopters).

LBC is definitely like no other club. Most of the comments on here seem to have pretty intricate knowledge of this club or I'm guessing they have or had girls in this organization. They have been telling parents for years that other clubs are so much more expensive. This is simply not true. They do give you the opportunity to fundraise. They offer nothing in the off season. If they offer anything additional you have to pay for it. If you really think they're not getting paid in some way they have fooled you. They should be paid. I don't know why they continue to try to deny it. I don't know about goalie discounts but they should get a discount. Most clubs give a discount even when they have a goalie program.

This thread should be congratulating Heros on their solid effort this past weekend, as well as SW. Congrats!

An individual player or strife among parents/directors should not be a public situation. Don’t stoop to the “LI adults” of the lacrosse world. Before you know it you’ll be using a beach umbrella for sun exposure. Just sayin’!

For an organization from the Eastern Shore, which has only been around a few years, pulling girls from Queen Anne's County (population 50,381), Caroline County (pop 33,304), and Talbot Counties (pop 37,181), compared to the large established organizations on the Western Shore pulling from Anne Arundel County (pop 579,234), Howard County (pop 325,690), and Baltimore County (pop 827,370) and having the ability to even compete with the large organizations is perfect for a family such as ours whom would rather play local than disrupt our family dynamics to travel for something promising to be 'better'. In addition, this Christmas, LBC helped 9 families in need, and received the following note of thanks: "Well the drop off was a success!! The smiles of those children were priceless as they know they have something special for each of them!!
I want to thank all of the generous givers as they have given blessings to two families that may have not had a very bright Christmas! One family

I thank you again and pray for you and your families to have a blessed and safe Christmas and looking forward to a New Year!!" And to top it off, Coach Smitty is the best lacrosse coach we have ever played for.

LBC is a club that starts off strong then whittles away as the years go on. Ask their 23s and 24s. Toxic environment for kids.

Many clubs help out families in need over the year, not all post. I'd argue most clubs do it.

Most directors are paid (not much) and coaches get additional stipends for their teams. Other clubs might be only $100-$200 more but you get more! More tournaments that are high quality, a lot more practice, quality coaching, specialized draw and goalie clinics, 100% committed families and teammates. LBC is mid pack and great for the Shore. It’s a shame that this club gets a bad rep. Maybe with a different Director/Leader things could be different.

If anyone thinks that someone from LBC shared that letter you are an stunad. The person who left shared the letter with muliple other people. Please tell me what club is $1700 to play? The tuition at LBC includes fall practice and stickwork, 3 or4 fall tournaments, winter stickwork/practice, NGLL and five summer tournaments. All of the teams have non parent head coaches. LBC's reputation must not be so bad since other clubs email and call constantly asking to scrimmage LBC teams.

I’m guessing it was the female director as she can be quite a handful. The male director seems to be very low key and a darn good coach from what I’ve observed. They jave some very solid team play.

Who cares if the email was shared when the director shared the email herself? Newsflash...$1700.00 is not a bargain. CClax, $1800.00 8 tournaments, practices, etc., MDU $1950.00 10 tournaments, practices, winter training, sibling discount, Heros $1600.00, 12 tournaments, practices. The list goes on. Are you getting the picture?? I'm not aware of any teams that do have parents as head coaches and if they had experience and knowledge of the game I wouldn't care. Teams should scrimmage other teams and most teams do except LBC.

This is an issue that should have been kept between the parent and the directors. The parent emailed the directors and only the directors but the LBC directors responded to it by sending their response to entire team. Poor judgment on their part, but it has been done by them before time and again. It is a total bully technique. Any parent can and should do what they think is best for their child. The directors chose to have their daughter go to boarding school. I bet the school she left didn’t try to humiliate them.

The shore needs a club like LBC, but with directors who don’t teach their players to tear down someone for their decisions. It is nice to have a club on the shore for girls to play, but the directors need to remember their actions have consequences. Parents, other clubs, college coaches, and most importantly the young ladies on their teams are watching and hopefully learning on how not to react.

Best decision we ever made was leaving that toxic dysfunctional club. Sadly it didn't have to be this way but they'll never learn. Lots of great families but unfortunately they've been gaslighted like an abusive spouse. Starts slow and gradual and most too afraid it will "hurt" their daughter to leave. Love to preach "LBC one happy family" and as long as you don't have the nerve to ask questions or express concern over bullying tactics you're golden. It was like leaving an abusive relationship (which it was) you had no idea how much better it could be until you leave. Regret not doing it sooner. Best of luck to families that feel stuck.

(1) the club has a policy that when you join one of their teams, it is a mutual, one-year commitment;
(2) midway through the year, the family of the 2026 team's only goalie determined that she was not getting adequate goalie coaching and moved to a different team;
(3) a club official emailed the family, with cc to the entire team, attacking their integrity, highlighting that 18 girls are left with no goalie;
(4) somebody who received the team-wide email, not necessarily the family of the player, posted it on BOTC as criticism of the club.

Is this right?

See where?
Where does it show that the email went to just one family?

What does that prove? The email from the director says she's sending it to the whole team 🤣🤣

It looks like neither side is without blame. If a program requires a one year commitment, that should mean something. Especially when you are the only goalie on the team. It would have been more honorable for the family to play out the one year commitment and then switch teams. They could have invested in a private position coach for temporarily while fulfilling her team commitment.

But the email was way over the top, both nasty on a personal level and bad business.

A club lacrosse program needs to be smart and take the high road when a customer does something wrong. They should have politely reminded her of the one year commitment, but if she insisted on leaving, wished her well and began the search for a new goalie. An email like that never ends well for the program that sends it.

I hope this helps.

Club director of LCB you better watch yourself because Karma is coming to get you you are literally threatening people and their children what is wrong with you this is a game and you know what if your child was going to benefit from leaving you would leave too !! Don’t act so pompous you have no right to judge anyone look in the mirror and live your own life and leave other people and their children alone!!!

College coaches are definitely paying attention. Hardly anyone from their 22 team has been recruited. Can’t blame Covid cause other 22 teams have been heavily recruited. Some clubs have had their entire 22 team completely recruited at this point. Such a shame for these girls because I always thought the 22 team was talented.

The directors chose to have their daughter go to boarding school. I bet the school she left didn’t try to humiliate them.

The shore needs a club like LBC, but with directors who don’t teach their players to tear down someone for their decisions. It is nice to have a club on the shore for girls to play, but the directors need to remember their actions have consequences. Parents, other clubs, college coaches, and most importantly the young ladies on their teams are watching and hopefully learning on how not to react.

The blackballing and bashing of players and families that goes on when a player switches clubs happens in every club and has been happening for years. But it is usually done by the parents and coaches, not the players and directors. LBC’s mistake was replying and cc:ing the team. That is just classless and 💩ty. It is also classless and 💩ty for the goalie to leave mid season. So all in all, you just have a really classless and 💩ty situation made worse by an anonymous forum of know it alls. Hope the person who shared the email feels good. Way to start your 2021 off a new foot.

I agree. Whenever a player no matter what position they play leaves the team it can be disruptive when it is during the season. However with this environment I would get my kid out of there as soon as possible.

I recieved a text from another parent to check out this thread who is also a parent on the 26 team. This forum is made up of a bunch of crazy people. I can honestly say the club and this team are great. This family has been an issue for a few years. I have spoken to both the club and this family and when they agreed to play this year they were given all the details of practice, goalie coaching and tuition. I did not see either parent at any of the practices and very few of the games this fall. 99% of the above is not true and if you are making up lies to hurt either the club or this family you should look in the mirror. The email was sent to the team so the family didn't spread more lies about what happen. The team was also sent the email sent to the coach which was one sentence and when the coach responded and asked for more information they didn't respond. Move on and worry about your own team.

Another sorry attempt with the last post from the organization at deflecting what they did wrong. What parent was allowed at practice anyway during this pandemic? Dah....That family is always at games supporting their kids and not everyone can be lying about the team. Try again. SMH

I'm the mother of this child. This team has a lot of great families and it was a very difficult decision to leave. With that being said LBC has promised goalie training at every practice for years. Every year we have trusted them and as soon as we sign back up there's no goalie coach. There was a college goalie that came to coach but once LBC stopped responding to her messages she didn't come back. That's not my business but that's the truth. If you consider goalie coaching a regular coach passing and juggling for 15-20 mins before a 90 min practice clearly you're not familiar with positional coaching. This is the exact reason why the 24 and 25 goalie left. This has been an issue for years. If our family is such an issue then why ask our daughter to come back every year? At the end of every year we have told them we're not coming to tryouts. Then the calls, texts, etc. start. We believe them and we come back. We pay between $50-65 an hour for private lessons. I have been very supportive of this team over the years and have a close relationship with a lot of the families. Have you heard of carpooling? It's a thing. Maybe you didn't see me at one of four fall practices when we weren't supposed to be getting out of our car. Little thing called covid. I've been at every fall tournament including the last one when I had a medical issue. If you are truly a 26 parent that I have spoken to please feel free to reach out to me directly. You must have my contact information. We are moving on and worrying about our own team. LBC should do the same.

You are doing what is best for your child, as all of us would do. If they have made empty promises over and over and had to beg you to come try out, they should have been prepared to have a 2nd goalie, most all clubs have two for each team. If they take kids midseason, they should be prepared to lose kids midseason. Its unfortunate how it unfolded, but clearly LBC didn't take the high road. Good luck to her daughter at her new club. She's going to get great goalie training, I can tell you from first hand experience.

Sounds Ike it was for the best. Goalie specific training is just as important. Goalies don’t want to be at practice when all that is happening to them is getting put in a goal to get shot on for a straight two hours. Invest in your goalies just as much as your other players. Good luck to you and your daughter.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2026 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 01/11/21 03:45 PM
My kid gets better at practice just like the other 24 girls on the roster. My daughter gets better then the other 23 by what she does in her own time in the backyard and yes me paying for skills training and speed/agility. If the club promised a goalie coach so be it but kids get better from the extra time they put in away from the team. Somepay money for extra training, some dont and you can tell who doesnt. Goalies arent different except there is only 1 one field and 2 on a roster .

I normally don't think it is wise for people to identify themselves on this forum, but in this case, the player's Mom represented herself and her daugher well by explaining why they made a move. She did not sound toxic, absentee, or crazy to me. Bait and switch is a major problem with all travel programs, not just in coaching, but roster placement, playing time, and other issues. It sounds like this program didn't just over-promise, but they actually misled the family about the availability of goalie coaching. They had better hire a real goalie coach and stop playing games or they are not going to have trouble getting new goalies in the program.

My daughter plays for LBC and I wish the directors would respond. All information was given to this family prior to them committing to playing this year. They knew eactly what they were getting. I spoke to this parent after they decided to stay. She was told who the goalie coaches were that would be working with the goalies at every practice. I was not told by the mom but others that she got a huge discount to pay for individual lessons. She told me that they were staying with LBC because her daughter wants to stay becuase she loves the coach and the team. My daughter is not a goalie but we also pay full tuition and pay for individual lessons outside of club practice.

"She was told who the goalie coaches were that would be working with the goalies at every practice"

Sounds like LBC went back on this though and there were not goalie coaches?

OK, “Devil’s Advocate” here! Yes we get it, a family left, and possibly multiple families prior to that. That is a choice and it happens in every club! Conversely, LBC could have handled the situation a bit more professionally, sure we get that. Business gets personal.

Folks complain about extra training etc. That is important, however how is it that LBC has multiple teams that compete with Heros, M and D, Skywalkers, etc. despite their inadequacy to provide “said” goalie training? Ya’ll are drinking the “Chickin’ Necker” Koolaid! Only some of you will understand this comparison.

I completely agree. The club director was dense for only having one goalie because that’s what the parents wanted, I blame her/him. What if the kid got injured or the family had to move out of state? The whole thing is so dense especially when you remember this is MIDDLE SCHOOL lacrosse.

PLEASE, if you can, do not choose geography when taking your daughter to this club. If you can drive your kid to another, please do. This club is abusive.

First off their director, while may not have a lacrosse background, is one of the best coaches on the eastern shore. Look what he has done at Easton with what he had to work with (Easton does have some great players so not trying to be negative). He also has numerous teams that compete with the best in the country, due primarily to him coaching them up. Every club cuts 4th/5th graders with exception of CC Lax as they have been known to warehouse kids for years. When 90 players show up for a grad year tryout at MD United, how many actually make it? 44, so you do the math. Every club fundraises, however at east LBC reduces tuition based on the amount of fund raising. No other club does that. Our family is not affiliated with LBC, however we hear the Eastern Shore rumors. Why did LBC absorb Saltwater from Salisbury? I'm guessing because Saltwater knew it would make for a better situation for them? There are also people claiming they poach players. All clubs do that. Enough of the LBC bashing! Our guess is that the parents that left are the ones that could be psychotic, not all, but some.

Mid Shore Increase Lacrosse Club?? Mid shore increase was a mixed team and it is my understanding that the assistant coach reached out to LBC about the players playing for LBC. The head coach was the only person who thought Mid Shore Increase was a club and never spoke to any of the players or families again.

Every club fundraises, however at east LBC reduces tuition based on the amount of fund raising. No other club does that. Our family is not affiliated with LBC, however we hear the Eastern Shore rumors. Why did LBC absorb Saltwater from Salisbury? I'm guessing because Saltwater knew it would make for a better situation for them? There are also people claiming they poach players. All clubs do that. Enough of the LBC bashing! Our guess is that the parents that left are the ones that could be psychotic, not all, but some.

For a family not affiliated with LBC you seem to know all the details about the director and his club.

Attacking Easton High School girls "what he had to work with" Must be a QA parent

Not a QA, Caroline or KI parent. No anger issues either. Just a family that is good friends with current LBC parents and has daughters that play/played elsewhere, therefore we are neutral. We are familiar with the organization, as we like to compare it to the ones our daughters have had a chance to play with or play/played for. OK, the directors made mistakes. Move on. Our daughter’s director has made mistakes too. We just didn’t have the crazy parents after the fact posting their vitriol, hence it could be a parent problem.

First off what team or parent wants one goalie? Answer that one!!!!!! If you want one goalie as a coach - your fault because kids get sick or hurt and that could leave you with none. If you are a parent and think having one goalie is good - you are selfish and not thinking about the "team"

When I am looking to purchase something I always look at the reviews. There are always a few people who write bad reviews. When the majority of the reviews are bad I move on to the next item. Move on to the next item. There are other options. Talk to parents, talk to coaches, talk to kids. Don't just talk to the director or a parent. There will always be a parent who has or had a great experience and vice-versa. Travel lacrosse is a big commitment. Do your research.

MD united usually has two teams per grad year, so there are usually not as many cuts. CCLax does take the ones that try out, and they will foster a younger girl to LOVE the game because she may have been given a chance. LBC started in QA county as an offshoot of Shore Kaos, which was a club derived from the current LBC "directors" and their friends and current coaches. They all got into a fight about money and LBC was born, at the end of the summer and some kids were left with no club. Watch the indoor videos on the Edge Arena for HS games and see the abhorrent actions of the "directors" wife. fights with refs. And LBC has been banned from tournaments for cheating.

LBC has not been banned from tournaments for cheating that is a complete lie. LBC was born because a group of girls wanted a competitive lacrosse club on the Eastern Shore. It has nothing to do with money. The director fired a coach and he started a team to play for the summer. The person you call "abhorrent" spends endless hours of time helping girls on the Eastern Shore have a place to play lacrosse. She is not perfect but I doubt you saw any other coach from any club at every indoor game volunteering her own time with none of her own kids playing. Do you all have nothing better to do? Go play for a club where the director doesn't know your name, makes a living off of club lacrosse, and leave LBC alone. My daughter's teammates will continue to enjoy playing for a local club who care about the players, families and helping the community.

So I think all the talk about LBC is getting old. Instead of talking about their club in general let’s talk about how not having their goalie will effect their team play. When they didn’t have her at the NGLL weekend on Labor Day they got beat handily by most teams. Can they recover? Will M&D get their act together this spring? Can Heros White keep beating top teams? Let’s talk about this upcoming season.

I personally don’t think that the original imposter/poster was trying to call out a young player like that. The comment “oh did it again” probably refers to MD United “poaching” players from LBC, or parents of LBC parents realizing the grass........BTW, that young lady is a solid player, shares the ball, is not a “Suzy go to goal”, and hustles on the re-defend. No shame in her game.

It is great that players can merely compete! Enjoy and know that player shuffling happens the most in Middle School.

No, not talking about the kid at all, was referencing the previous post where someone asked that we stop talking about LBC. It was a joke, nothing to do with any player, just the topic on this board, LBC, that gets a lot of print. Again, nothing intended about the kid.

Here’s the question... can M&D black beat Heros white?
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2026 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 03/25/21 09:26 PM
Not at the 26 level. M&D needs help coaching that team. I know they had the St Paul’s coach in fall. Parents are hoping she takes over soon.

She’s still there now. My daughter plays for M&D and loves her and the head coach.

Sure, anything is possible. After not being able to get a win against Heros white during the fall, M&D is gonna be hungry.

Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2026 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 03/28/21 02:23 AM
M&D looked out gunned, out coached and out matched... they have athletes but they had no offense at all and no idea how to create any offense. It is clearly Heros 26Green and then Hero's 26 White and then everybody else.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2026 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 03/28/21 02:31 AM
M&D is not the same at every age. Parents have to understand, each age bracket is different. Heros Green and White are best in this age bracket.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2026 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 03/28/21 11:50 AM
Definitely agree. Heros white dismantled M&D in all stages of the game. Not sure what’s in the water out in western hoco but the Heros 26 teams have some serious talent. M&D looked lost out there.

Integrity claims they are the best team at the 26 level? Or the players they are recruiting come from the best 26 team?

If they are claiming they are the best team around, that is a joke. And I am pretty certain no Hero’s players will be leaving to go play there.

It’s just that this 26 Hero’s white team really isn’t a “B” team at all . . . so just can’t think of it like that or classify them that way.

May have started that way 4 years ago but everyone in the organization agrees there are two A teams at 26 level. Why else would their second team be in the A division and play all the same competition as the first team. They didn’t get ranked #5 in the country with their club thinking they were a B team, they would never get a chance to play all the teams they have if that was the case. Hero’s just draws great talent and 26 year proves that

The thing is ... Heros 26 green and white are both great teams .... right now... this never lasts ... Skywalkers and others will catch up(. Maybe not M and D since coaching is so terrible )The coach doesn’t have a clue and so what if Gagnon is assistant coach. She can’t fix this unless she gets rid of him. When it’s time for recruitment you will see Heros will not dominate . Parent coaching eventually will cause a lot of issues. It happens for every age group eventually .So Heros dads you can calm down on this site. I swear you post while you are still on the field.

It used to be that every coach of an M&D Black team was a Varsity Head Coach. Obviously this isn't the case anymore and it is showing in the results. Things have started to unravel since Chris left for Florida. Not sure if they don't pay enough to attract Varsity coaches anymore or what the reason in.

Heros white became stronger after several defections of families going to M&D black. Heros white dominated NGLL and in tournaments in 2019 at the B level. Nobody else could come close. How is it fun to keep winning by large margins? People left to go to M&D thinking they were going to be better off on an A team. Meanwhile Heros White worked to strengthen the team by adding talent in the spots opened up by those who jumped to M&D.

I would not count on the assitant coach sticking around for the Black 26's. It is a stopgap measure. That particular coach rightfully is focused on her high school team. Next year her daughter will be playing in CA so I doubt she wants to be saddled with full time club coaching again.

To be fair, for heros 22, several green girls opted down to the white team in order to get more playing time. Not uncommon at the elite clubs.

As a parent of a girl on the team it’s embarrassing to us. Several of the parents are pretty unhappy. Nothing new there though. Hadn’t heard of the coach getting attacked in the parking lot though.

Coach was not attacked in the parking lot. I would say the coach was confronted by parents about playing time but not physically attacked. There is frustration by parents and it’s dividing the team. When girls leave and and tryout for other clubs maybe this will be Robinsons wake up call. This team will implode.

Good luck with that. Hero’s parents do not know how to get over themselves. It’s been this comical since 2014.

Dude it’s one age group. Wait Until they are freshman and see if team is as successful. Green , Black and Blue will seperate again and white won’t get into same brackets in recruiting tournaments then.
Not the case...Hero's 22 white is JUST as good as green and they play in the same brackets as the green against tougher teams


To be fair, for heros 22, several green girls opted down to the white team in order to get more playing time. Not uncommon at the elite clubs.
I thought Hero’s is equal playing at the high school level. If it is equal playing time, why would there be a reason to “opt down”?

I wonder how much of it is normal. PT at M&D is a scarce commodity. The fact that there are 7 or 8 attackers, 7 defenders and 6 middies (roughly) is a problem for PT.

If any of the core group leaves it will be chilling.

What is comical is thinking club rankings don't matter. Who do you think the coaches go and watch play... the top teams in the country. The best teams attract the best players. You must be new to this.

PT is a problem for sure. There is either subbing or NO subbing. The Coaches forget about players on the sidelines and some girls never touch the field. Parents are frustrated. They pay a lot of money and not getting a return on their investment. You wait and see there will be change to the team unless a new coach takes over. Skywalkers, Integrity, NEMS to name a few will see some new faces.

I’m going to save all you 26 parents the frustration. M&D will not do anything about a coach unless all the parents go as a unit and threaten to leave. If not , any parents that voice concerns (valid or not) will be labeled as a “problem parent”. I’ve seen one of an older M&D team do that and they found a new coach. But a different older team had defections of several very strong players and instead of addressing the concerns of those parents they’ve just been labeled as troublesome or crazy. It has to be done as a unit. It’s just easier to say parents are crazy then to correct the coaching.

College coaches don't give a ish who is ranked #1. The same clubs, M&D, SW, YJ, Hero's are always in the top division of tournaments and play each other. The coaches don't give a darn who wins. Some of you are in for a rude awakening when 9/1 of your daughter's junior year comes. It's comical.

agreed. My daughter is a verbal to a top 10 school and some ranking by some guy up in NY had nothing to do with it. the club name got the coaches attention and and her talent did the rest. Rankings, championship t-shirts and wins do not get you recruited. Talent and grades do

Its only equal playing time for the recruiting events and showcases / IWCLA events.

7-6-7 with two goalies is proably most typical. Some attackers can play middie as needed.

In terms of a core rotation, most teams are usually at 5-5-5 or so. 15 or 16 players will get the bulk of playing time in competitive games. That said, the top teams get alot of blowouts so the backups get their share of PT. At older ages, its usualy much more even at showcase and non-championship style events.

Based in n the Chris Robinson email today that happened. Said that he said coaches are harder to find than in the past. Almost sounds defeatist.

I agree with the procedure, just wish there was no need for the procedure. I wonder how normal 26 is vs other clubs and other m and d teams.

You have to have some badonkadonks to approach a coach immediately after a game. The entitlement in girl’s lacrosse is painstakingly embarrassing. Who do you parents think you are? Are you going to approach the high school coaches in parking lots too? Do, and your kid will never play college lacrosse. Get a grip.

Not sure there has been any kid bashing but I haven’t read the whole board. I think it’s more parent on parent bashing. I think even the worst among us can agree that kids are off limits.

They will be just fine. Lots of quality coaches and Scott can handle it. You mean Heros parent coaches are better or the coaches sw have don’t deal with parent issues ? You can only hope a single club is the only one with issues.

Scott or Chris is NOT handling the coaching issue OR parent concerns. . Mary was brought on in hopes to shut the parents up, Mary is a wonderful coach but is not invested in the team. M and D 26 team has flipped from winning to losing why? Coaching for one and all the parents who were unhappy at Hero’s and fled. Now M and D has their drama and entitlement and we are going down quick.

I believe there will be some coaching changes soon. MG needs to decide how invested she wants to be with her daughter going to UsC in fall. It’s a good way for her to recruit girls to SPSG next year.

Which one of you has better info? Put it on the table! My uncles sisters neighbors gardener is also her gardener and he says she was wearing black which means she’s going to be the head coach! Take it to the bank!

Let’s see. A dad going after coach in fall at Genessee. One dad that has kids in 2 programs starting stuff on his own sideline. Parents should have been asked to take kids to another program. Coach needs to put the time in like it’s a M&D team. This isn’t rec. MG has to take over or this team is done.

Not sure what you are talking about?? Taking your rumor to the bank? Spill the beans if you have such good intel because M and D parents are in the dark for about everything. I know there will be a RED team and it will be a father daughter duo, but again if M and D doesn’t get girls to try out and have quality players what’s the point of a RED team. And to go back to one of the posts saying Maybe the better team won. Yes the better team won. Hero's white is the better team, better players, I wouldn’t say daddy that coaching is considered quality but I guess it works. In order for the 26 team to move forward, 2 things need to happen... coaching is the first thing second is the toxic hot head Heros parents who think their daughters are owed starting and all the playing time. Until then the 26 will continue down this path of distraction. To pay 3k for fees and not improve as a player or team.... well parents are fed up and are planning on leaving. Maybe these toxic parents will head back to Hero's one can only hope.

This is something else. Here is my question to the 26 Black, Green and White parents. Do you talk like this in front of your daughters? Are these the things you say and talk about in front of them? If they are, then my guess is they are also not happy and it’s time for your family to move on. If this talk only takes place here and not in front of them, why don’t you ask them if they are happy. If they are, maybe for now you step back from the keyboard and let your players enjoy their season since this time last year they weren’t allowed out of their homes.

And that right there is the problem, the good parents will leave. It’s no longer about the players. You need help.

The parents that acted that way needed to be let go. Saw a M&D mom yelling at a coach at new town a couple summers ago. Nothing was done! Plenty of good replacements out there.

lets be honest. the fall off of M&S goes beyond the 26 team. The 27s and 28s are also rather average by M&D standards.

27s just got punked by BLC in NGLL and the 28s are well behind Heros, MD United and NEMS.

M&D 28 absolutely destroyed Hero's Green the last time they played.

I agree with this. He knows the game, he just isn’t the best at teaching it. He would be a great assistant.

If it is for education or opportunities yes but to spend 15-30,000$ for lax and then more in college because lax schollies are in 10-15,000 range out of 60,000 total that is financially notIntelligent. If they can't hang at the power public school they won't hang in college either.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2026 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 04/07/21 08:09 PM
Agreed.
30k x 4 high school years
$3k club fees for 6-7 years
$30k x 4 college years.
$260 k for lax.
Let’s say that is counting the 20% off in scholarship for lax.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2026 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 04/07/21 11:43 PM
The head coach for the 26 team has never played lacrosse, has no communication skills, avoidance issues and can be hot and cold depending on his mood for the day. Maybe when he coached at the younger ages he was great but NOT going into 8th grade-high school level. Word has it that a girl left the team abruptly, I wonder if more girls will leave the team. Wake up Robinsion brothers!!!!

My 2 cents. If you daughter has a chance to attend the school she wants (public or private) give it a shot. If you get 1/3-2/3 of the tuition reduced and you can afford it, it is worth pursuing. At the end of the day, you will not know what is available if you do not apply.

A friend of mine told me about this post. My daughter is the one that left recently. I did not make the post above. My daughter left on good terms with the team and coaches, and I have nothing bad to say about them. M and D was good to her. She had been there for 4 years and it was just time for a change, plus we had some life changes that made logistics very difficult. We have nothing to gain by bad mouthing her former team so please don’t attribute words to people you don’t know.

I’ll take that ranch now. smile

I know most coaches played in college, but that's not the be all end all for lax coaches in my experience. My daughters have had a few coaches with top pedigrees in terms of college programs, but were not good coaches. If the coach has learned the game (and keeps learning), is all-in, and can run a good practice (no long lines and standing around), then the team is probably in good hands. The coach also has to be able to "see" the game well in terms of what's happening out there and be able to break concepts down into a teachable way. There are some good coaches out there who never played at a high level. Also, male coaches who played in college still need to learn the girls game ;-). Just my two cents.

We left M&D too. Not this team, but another one. It was the best decision ever made, and we also left under good terms. You have to do what you have to do for your child. Good luck to her.

A mom with two girls in HOCO (older team) said head coach for Mnd 26 was a coach at HOCO who was squeezed out of the program (lots of complaints from the parents/players). Surprised a club like Mnd took him in, guess they’re struggling to find coaches.

Usually coaches go the other direction. Hoco doesn’t have much to offer. Their teams will start to lose some as they become more serious about lax. Hoco not a top level club.

Question about rostering, I know in soccer, they are very strict about not having girls unrostered play in games, or preventing from an older girl playing down. Is this similar in NGLL? Is there a set roster and if a girl is not on that roster, she cannot play? Can anything be done after the fact or must this be brought up to refs at the game?
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2026 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 04/23/21 01:35 PM
Girls can not play for another club once they are rostered for a team. If a girl who is not rostered for a team is needed to play for another team the coach has to contact the NGLL and notify the other coach prior to the game. If they do not notify the other coach they have to forfeit the game. Girls can only move for A or A, B to A or B to B.

All players register with NGLL and the club also submits a roster

Girls can not play down to another age group

So my issue is, there was a player on opposing team (bigger than most) who's number is not on the NGLL Roster emailed out on March 1st and is not listed by name on the team site (no numbers on team site but I crosschecked with NGLL list).

Seems to me, there should be some avenue to contact NGLL if we have video proof of unknown number playing in a game.

Do you want to make that move, or is that a move you leave up to your Club/Coach? They should be the ones pursuing it.

Some tournaments have rosters on their site but we got a list from NGLL asking us to verify all the information, NGLL sent it out because many rosters had multiple teams listed for one kid.

So how did you see the roster if you’re not the coach? I’ve never seen a roster for even our team, much less other teams.

Honestly, are we really at that point? We know kids hold back, why not the police that too.

If you are concerned with the size of girls, you better get your roster out when you play Heros green.

I prefer not to say since I am not 100% positive, but the situation to me appears to be an older B team player playing on a younger A team, based on the jersey number and what I piece together on the site.
I just spoke to our coach and she basically said nothing we can do after the fact, so I let this lay.

http://www.nationalgirlslacrosseleague.com/Rules.html

Substitute Players: Teams may use players from a lower age group and/or level - meaning: a "B" player can play up an age group and/or division and an "A" player may only play up an age group... Ex. a 2027 "A" player may substitute on a 2026 "A", but NOT a 2026 "B" team. If you are going to do this, you must email mlynch@nationalgirlslacrosseleague.com Thursday before the game will be played and you must notify the opposing coach and scorekeeper before the game.

Failure to comply will result in forfeiture of the game.

NGLL out out a roster on March 1st.

Most clubs have roster on team site.

Ha, there are some big kids no doubt about it, not saying that makes them a player playing down, but that, add to the fact that the number is not listed.

Don’t be so sensitive. M&D lost to Heros by 2
And Pride lost by 1. It should be a good game.

That roster 3/1 was definitely not the final. NGLL opened registration back up for teams who didn’t have everyone registered. I know because I registered my daughter 3/12 and got confirmation from Sheridan. Are you seriously saying a girl is playing down because she’s “bigger than most”? That is ridiculous.

Lots of teams have girls “bigger than most” but they are also listed on the rosters.

I thought LBC's goalie and best middie went to MDU? Doesn't look like it worked out very well for MDU. One of the parents on the sidelines said the new goalie was one of their best field players. She was pretty impressive in the goal during our game with LBC.

The Hero's goalie was lights out in goal. Huge difference maker

You can be exposed without being deemed a close contact. Go drive your car with your mask on and be quiet.

I would avoid Integrity at all costs. We left there last year because it was such a mess. We have never looked back. Disorganized. Lack of coaching or coach doesn’t show up at all (yes this actually did happen). Lack of recruiting support for older players (same coach who didn’t show up & many unhappy older players unless you are a coach/RD favorite). Choose wisely because your club decision does really matter since high school is right around the corner. There are too many better options available to settle for Integrity.

Ok, LBC Mom/ Director we get it she’s the best and better than your old goalie.
I’ve also seen her play, and was OK. Definitely not the best out there.

One team beat them. The silence from the Heros parents is deafening.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2026 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 05/03/21 08:36 PM
That silence was based on the YJ coach having his players just stand near the sideline and hold the ball...in the first half and most of the second half. It was not disbelief that Hero's was losing...but that he was doing this...in a scrimmage. Overall, YJ is a very good team. He could have just let the girls play it out. Maybe he thought it was more important to win the scrimmage than to just play. And let's not even get started on the zone D.
I have a feeling Hero's Green and White will be just fine

Both teams have great players! They should do it more often! D was outstanding will be fun to see where all these girls go!

No excuses they are a good team . There parents were a little out of line the coaches had to have a talk with them . They also had a mixed squad and your typical holdbacks it’s what’s expected from there . But a very talented bunch of kids .

This is true, but there is another word in there...PLAY....not just hold the ball. It's one thing to do it at the end of the game, but this was in the first half. And zone is totally legal, just not something you see many teams play at this age, as kids are learning how to slide and play man. At the end of the day, YJ is good, and it's one loss for Green. They will be just fine...it in fact will probably help them come summer. They lost once last year too. No excuses

Thanks Heros parents, keep showing your lack of class. It’s comical how pathetic you all really are. If the tables were turned M and D would have invited you all to the play date because we value your daughters level of play and want our team to continue to get better as well. Karma is coming your way.

Just to set the record straight. This was initiated by Yellow Jackets. They invited Hero’s and M&D. Both accepted and for whatever reason M&D decided to opt out.

Important advice to parents and girls deciding on high school. Make sure to talk to current players at each respective high school. Not just the starters. Talk to players who are new to the team who get limited playing time. Are they being encouraged and learning from the coach? Are they included in practice or do they stand on the sidelines? We made a very poor choice in attending a top IAAM school with a young and inexperienced coach. We regret our decision and wish we had talked to more players.

This is great advice.

Another big point - look at the JV. Does the head Varsity coach pay attention to the JV? Are practices completely separate or do they do the stretches, stick warm-up etc. together?

DD has been hurt most of the season but head Varsity coach noticed that she still attends every practice and game and told her how great it was she showed her commitment to the team/program. It was a short but very important conversation. Coach knows all of the JV players and stays for some of most games - all of it if it's a big game. We are a top WCAC team, fwiw

I have no affiliation with either team and just happened to catch some of the championship game in passing, but I was appalled by the talk of the parents. A mother on the green team loudly celebrated every time a girl shot on goal... yelling to shove it in her face or some nonsense. Vicious..... those might be future teammates of your darling daughter out there. Might want to show a little class and just be excited your club has such a talented pool of girls at that age range. I thought the White team put in a great effort and their goalie was impressive.

Most of the green teams parents are low class at every age, not just 2026. Expect nothing more. The White team is far from a B team, all other teams in 2026 know it, but their own club’s A team belittles them. Great club. Most teams prefer to play them over green because of the parents. Call them out next time.

Heros parents loud and obnoxious? Never, that is Shocking to read! Unfortunately the coaches never address mom or dad living their ESPN highlights through young women. And call it out, those Randall’s in the world that think one play is like the 3rd strike in the World Series.

Get a grip parents. Cheer for your team but never at the expense of another player. As someone posted, teams change and your little darling could be playing with them next season.

I can most certainly say that an older green team parents are beyond awful and dread my daughter playing against them. It's disgusting how they behave on the sidelines and watch out if your team is beating them, it gets ugly.
And it's just green.

My D is not this age group, but that is low class by the Green parents. I'll be routing for White to win, and if they do the club should change their name to Green. Good luck!

Most of the green teams parents are low class at every age, not just 2026. Expect nothing more. The White team is far from a B team, all other teams in 2026 know it, but their own club’s A team belittles them. Great club. Most teams prefer to play them over green because of the parents. Call them out next time.
I can most certainly say that an older green team parents are beyond awful and dread my daughter playing against them. It's disgusting how they behave on the sidelines and watch out if your team is beating them, it gets ugly.
And it's just green.

Don’t let it bother you. Most will ride the bench in college.
That’s what happens when you create a pipeline and you dont create “creative players” who play formulaically and can’t hack dynamic play.. Most just sitting there resting on feathers, while waiting to go to MD or other Div 1 who have fallen out of the rankings because formulas don’t work anymore.

None of this or other posts seem good and certainly doesn't help Hero's image for girls/families looking to move to the better MD programs. Every club/program seems to have their "issues" per say you take with some grain of salt but this commentary on the state of Hero's doesn't bode well.

The Green parents for most age groups are intense. Some more than others. but a few that take games entirely too serious. The poor kids having to listen to the Randall’s of this club making comments about ref calls or how a girl missed a ground ball.

The green goalie is good, but has she been battle tested. 26 Green demolishes teams, thus she doesn't get many shots.

Maybe you should try convincing her to come play on your M&D team. They could use an upgrade at goalie.

Each of the Hero's 26 teams are only carrying one goalie. She may be there by default. A lot of teams in the area are carrying goalies on their B team that have no business being there. Hopefully Heros holds a fair tryout and gives the girl an opportunity to move up (if that is what she wants.)

Better sideline on the B team. Plus their B team is really another A team.

Both Green and White were 8-0 regular season and Green won the championship game by 2 goals (not some landslide) with really good goalies on both teams who get to play full games. Bet players on both teams are happy, improving, playing with friends, and having fun etc.

M and D coach had a chance and 100% blew his chance of getting a goalie half way decent. His team has girls on there that are bullies. It’s a shame watching this happen to a team and all the while the head coach does nothing to stop the banter and degrading comments.

Mary is NOT taking over the 26 team. She has made this clear. She wants to be an assistant coach and nothing more. Unfortunately the head coach will remain the same and no changes will be made. This summer will be interesting for the team and the club as a whole.

He's too nice (read weak) to ever say anything. The dynamic is awkward at best with MG. I honestly have no idea why he does it.

MG seems more concerned about her coaching clinics and HS which makes sense.

7 yellow cards in the Hero’s Green championship game? 7 total between the 2 teams? Either the refs were a little whistle happy or that was a dirty game. If it’s the latter, I’d be concerned on how they are being coached.

That happened in our team too for a few years. We were all puzzled as to why they move certain players and not others(23’s)
it all comes down to the directors making promises to families, and maybe hs coaches.? Maybe he doesn’t want to upset a family that’s been there at the club for a while?
Your director needs a backbone.

I heard that several Hero 25 goalies tried out for American Select. I’m not sure which one(s) made it, but I heard white performed well.

It was noted earlier, but 2026 white is a close second to green (unlike some other years). Both teams met in the championship and it was close (2 points). Maybe she has decided players, parents, and coaches on white are a better fit for her.

I'd assume if anyone is really interested that SR would give them the details if you reach out to him. I'd expect they will announce it sometime soon. The two will make a great tandem and allow MG the time she needs to be a parent of a D1 player and a HS coach. The team is in good hands going forward.

The head coach has made it CLEAR to his team and parents he is not leaving. This is all a game SR and CR play in hopes for more girls to try out for the 26 team. More girls try out they can now have a red and black team. This “new coach “ will be for the red team. This happened two years ago and the red team never was.

Lol. Ok. I 100% guarantee you that there will be a new head coach. He has made it clear he isn't leaving but that doesn't mean he will be the head coach. I am not sure if he will be back in any capacity but I do KNOW FOR CERTAIN that there will be a very good new head coach and that MG will continue to assist.

I'm not either SR or CR. Just someone that knows what's going on. Like was said earlier if you are a 2026 parent just ask SR. I'm sure he will tell you what's happening after this summer. They will be publicizing it soon enough.

Angry Heros Green parents. Even in this age group. One team against another. Parents against parents. Unfortunate you can’t celebrate the win. The club rises together, not only as a Green Team. Great job Tierney building a cut throat club. You should modify your website. “We eat our own”

What are you talking about? Heros is a great program with coaches who know what they are doing and with the two best goalies in the country at this age group, they simply can beat anyone, including each other. M&D and Skywalkers can't catch them unless they revamp the teams.

How did Tierney create a cut throat club. Best 2 teams in 26 come from heros. This is great and parents need to settle. Great thing for the 40 plus girls when recruiting comes. I’m not a heros person but this is impressive. Congrats heros 26

It should be great for the club having two great teams. However it is not. Parents are pitted against each other ans so are the players. Tierney preaches unity and one club but allows the sideline craziness to happen. The snarky comments from Green parents. Never says a word.

SW always revamps their high school teams with players from outside of Maryland and studs from other clubs.

It’s starts at tryouts when they separate the girls into groups when in turn separates the parents. I have nothing against Tierney but it’s just going to happen.

Congrats to the girls on a great championship game. I have never heard more parents talk so bad about each other and their own team’s players. Most, not all. They are the club’s problem along with a director who is notorious for looking the other way as long as the teams are winning.

Really? Interesting because CR or SR will address the teams issues or concerns. No change is coming if there was they would let the 26 team know. Instead they hide and ignore.

One game and it was a close game. Take a breath parents. Watch the next game when Heros White and Green play. Once Green wins again, the chatter will subside. Green will be back on top

Do you think these things happen in a vacuum? I’m just putting information out there. If you want to confirm reach out to SR. This is what’s happening. Between KL and MG you won’t find a better coached team.

As someone considering a move to a new program in MD, seeing things like this around Heros doesn't put them in a good light that's for sure.

CR just confirmed in email to M&D families. KL HC, MG, AC.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2026 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 06/08/21 01:19 PM
Heros is a good program. It is club so a little more cut-throat. Heros don’t do a great job of club Green/White unity. They preach it, website promises it, but it doesn’t happen. And the girls don’t really interact. It’s not a Happy go lucky, all team environment.

Green is green. And White is white.

Green players have a sense of elite entitlement. And Tierney knows it, doesn’t say anything and parents take it because they want to get recruited.

Former sw coach and Ngll director ML is the word I hear.

That's not correct. She's a current M&D coach.

The head coach has made it CLEAR to his team and parents he is not leaving. This is all a game SR and CR play in hopes for more girls to try out for the 26 team. More girls try out they can now have a red and black team. This “new coach “ will be for the red team. This happened two years ago and the red team never was.

Well maybe now it's been made CLEAR that it is no longer his team.

Probably wasn't hard to convince her to coach 8th graders with MG as opposed to coaching a 3rd grade developmental team. She's been a varsity coach out in San Diego for 3 years and at McD for many years before that.

Will this new 2026 coach , KL make this team better? They are supposed to have a red team this year do they even have that many girls trying out? I would think a more established name would make people bring their kids to tryouts... if the team is to get better they need some new players.

KL is an established name. And the fact the MG is her assistant makes it even better. Not many club teams can offer you two HS Varsity coaches. I'm pretty certain their will be new girls at tryouts this summer.

No a college asst and recycled coach. M&D rates are same as other clubs except Hoco. Will have own practice facility and other quality resources other clubs do not have. Plus their red teams choose to play the top levels some. Lots of clubs ‘A’ teams play lower levels. Hoco , Md United all play middle tiers in summer with them.

I know this much. Coach will be fine. He’s a good man. He was loyal to some kids on that team and most wanted him replaced. This year at tryout will be interesting as new and talented players come and move long standing black players off the team. To the parents. You get what you asked for ! Hope your kid isn’t one that gets replaced.

That's right, Heros White will be rolling teams as the dead weight will be gone this year and then not have any weaknesses.

You people really have no clue.

Your daughter will enjoy her experience a lot more as well.

Interesting that the best 26 team at heros won’t be Tierney’s. Where will the white team get players from to replace this dead weight. People are always looking for spots on b teams.

Mary G. will pluck players from Heros Green and White. The hostility in Heros and culture created and tolerated by Tierney will ultimately be the demise of that team. It doesn’t matter they have a few talented players. As the girls get older, talent levels off with individual players and team play is what will win games, not single players. Too many crazy parents and Tierney allows the nonsense. Mary G. has a great reputation and players will jump. It doesn’t matter that Cathy Reese’s daughter is on 26 Green. People know that not very kid is going to Maryland and will rather be happy and in a positive environment.

That may or may not be true for Green, but it is definitely not true for White. The very reason they are being so successful is because they play like a team. Watch them and you will see. They are a cohesive unit and the kids and parents all like each other.

Heros parent here. Not sure what anyone is talking about regarding a hostile environment in Heros. Girls seem to like their teammates and get along with the other Heros team. Some are very close friends and go to school together. Do they compete? Yes. Game are tight and it’s great competition. Both teams seem to be the tops in their age group which is pretty cool. Have not seem and drama or ever heard parents bad mouth any girls on the other team. This is all fake news.
But I’m sure MG will come in and make everything better for M&D. She definitely will miss her daughters games in college to coach a 2026 team on the weekends. 🙄

I love how everyone on here is the expert on everything. Just because no other program has two A teams does not mean other programs won’t want to play the best, no matter their color. Give me a break.

Who are you fooling? There is no way they get ANY Heros' players. MG isn't enough to draw them from a winning program to a dysfunctional team that has been that way for YEARS. Bad juju is still there. Read the threads of the crazy m&d moms disguised as anonymous. Let's be real here, unless MG can get someone to stop us from scoring, there is no chance. It's been obvious in every game we play M&D this past year and it's not looking like it will change. The only positive for M&D is they can still keep games close but can't win. We've got the best team, the second best team and the best goalies. Hero's is where it is at. Hostility? Demise?
Please. #1 and #2 teams in the country. Hero's.

Don't let your kids read this because they will want to quit lacrosse when they hear the truth.

That's right, Heros White will be rolling teams as the dead weight will be gone this year and then not have any weaknesses.

Heros white players to M&D black if they don’t make green. Mark it down. They will get to play in too brackets all the time that way !

Pretty sure they already do...

Won’t happen in high school. Green will get Mnd black , sw blue , yj top team , monster. White will get the sloppy seconds and everyone knows it.

M&D is sloppy seconds. White just beat ALL those teams.

My daughter is a rising HS senior and has played since kindergarten. This couldn’t be more true. She is committed and very excited to play in college but there were definitely quite a few times she wanted a break and wanted to check out other interests - even in high school after playing at a top high school and on various showcase teams like UA. She always came back around on her own but quite a few of her friends never did. And quite a few are still college committed but absolutely detest the sport now but feel pressured to follow thru until the end. Burn out is REAL and happens to the most committed and passionate of them. Parents need to savor every season and stop the undue pressure they deliberately or subliminally put on their child.

I already hear this from my daughter's friends in 7th grade. Don't think it won't be your kid because it definitely can be.

Just as an outside observer, the constant chatter from the Hero's side here doesn't help your image or put your club in a good light. I know all clubs have issues including M&D, but none of this looks good. Just enjoy the success and keep moving forward.

Heros 2021 Green was one of the better teams in the country in middle school and by high school they could hardly win a game in A brackets of tournaments. Things are going to change a lot at the 26 level in the next 2 years. You can mark that down.

Maybe, but until M&D rids itself of the stale parents that pushed their coach out and slowly ruined that team, they won't be good enough to challenge the best teams anymore. If that is what you're referring to, then maybe you're right, but since you're probably one of those, you're probably wrong.

Only time will tell what happens in the tournaments and if players jump clubs. Don’t be fooled, parents admire the Name Recognition of top clubs, Heros, Skywalkers, M&D, etc. Club tryouts are cutthroat and teams will cut one girl to get another. There is ZERO loyalty.

Heros and M&D are terrible about player development. All about the Wins. Game plans are centered on a few shooters. Practices are designed to design plays to get the ball to the stars. No work on skill development so the ones who are very good but not the stars, don’t get the coaching they need to be better. Opponents should watch some game film and and focus their defenses on stopping the few shooters.

Yes this did happen with the 2022 team. I witnessed it. And the next post about opposing teams studying who these shooters are is true. Reason the M&D 22 team started losing games the last 2 years. Ball will be going to #6 - it’s a guarantee. Easy to stop. They figured it out in the IAAM too!

Teams have 2 practices a week. Approx 3 hours. How much time should be spent on passing and catching with the whole group. Some of the really good ones do that during the day and need to learn the game at practice. Some girls will never be the stars and should learn how to use their skills in a team setting. This is spoken like a parent that is mad cause their daughter doesn’t have equal plays called for her even though she isn’t as good.

But did the IAAM figure it out? Is it easy to stop? Was this player held scoreless in playoffs?

Heros Green starting to implode. Faced tough competition and crumbled. They will make changes during tryouts and bring girls up from White. White players will jump. Don’t fool yourself. They say no but they do and will go.

Club is club and players want to be on the A team. Doesn’t matter what club, Heros Green, M&D Black, SkyWalkers Blue, HOCo Black….all A teams and everyone wants to be on them. The question is can Tierney keep the peace? Girls jumping, will White completely be ravaged and parents get fed up? Already huge divide now because of culture that Tierney allows.

A lot of outsiders just trying to stir up trouble as well. Pretty easy to see. Relax. Enjoy being back to normal lacrosse and let the girls have fun. Just because some teams lost a couple games doesn't mean anything. These girls on all the top teams are all good athletes. They'll rebound. Just sets up for some more great lacrosse going forward.

Would serve heros right. Their young coaches are sending invites to kids on other clubs trying to get them to tryouts. This garbage needs to stop. It’s happening at 29 level. Just ask the coach see what he says.

When the White girls leave for Green, AND THEY WILL AND DO, parents left on the White Team will be upset then whining that the team is ravaged. Better start planning ahead for tryouts. If anyone on this forum thinks Tierney is not going to pluck White players, I have beachfront property in Iowa for sale.

Better start planning ahead. Think about what other club will compete. Just look at older age groups. Teams that dominate at 6/7/8th grade. Then girls level off and moves happen and it is no longer 1 team dominating. Just look from 20-24s now. Don’t get stuck out in the cold.

It happens every year.

No, other years have not had a white team nearly as dominant as this one. But it will happen. Recruiting for college is getting closer and closer and it looks so much better to be on the green team than the white team.

They do it at all ages too. I know of a player that was removed from her current club after being caught practicing with hero's (even skipping practice with her actual team sometimes).

They want players that play the best competition and green will get that in recruiting with the tougher brackets. Look at the 22 brackets most weekends.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2026 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 06/24/21 12:26 PM
Both teams play at the top level. No difference between any of the teams being discussed on this board when it comes to recruiting. They will all be seen because they are part of the top teams around.

The top recruiting showcases, top tourneys will not all both Hero's teams to be in the top pool. That's a pipedream. They will push Hero's white to a lower pool with other B team clubs
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2026 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 06/24/21 10:24 PM
This person is 100% correct. Heros will push the White Team to the B bracket. If they stay in the A bracket, it will be the easy brackets and no college coaches will pay that much attention. Better the play in B and be in the Top of the Bracket. Look at the recruiting at the tournaments. No colleges standing for low level A clubs. They go to the hard brackets to watch. Both A and B.

Wait. Why wouldn’t White players want to play for Green? Is t that why you have a second team? So players who develop later have a chance to make the top team?? Not sure why this is a bad thing. It happens every year in every club.

I would suggest looking at the Skywalkers program. They always end up catching up with these teams and get a lot of girls recruited. They are concerned with the players' development as a player and as a human. Honestly, with the way these parents are speaking on this forum about 7th-grade girls and each other, I don't think these teams would be an option for me. BTW, I do not have a player in this age group AT ALL. I was just poking around the forum and started reading the comments.

Heros is a joke. Tierney is trying to stop the club from imploding. Matching players against players. She doesn’t have the best interest of girls in mind. Only cares about the Green teams .

Leave and go to SkyWalkers, M&D, or Coppermine. Heros will implode like the 20, 21, 22, 23 Green teams. Not able to keep pace with other clubs because they eat their own. None of them are #1 in age divisions. Are they ranked high, yes, not #1 though.

When a club promotes that nonsense, you will not be successful. Will Green girls get recruited…yep. But they will not be on the best team for that particular year. White girls leave now before teams are set and be part of a winning program and be recruited.

Being number 1 shouldn’t be an issue in club. Be on a team that competes and get recruited. Grass isn’t always greener but you will find that out after a couple times moving. Should just stay and work it out.

How did Heros lie to many? Did they tell the white parents thT your kid can never move up to green? Or we will keep whites best players with white so you can keep your team together so your daughter won’t be sad? Give me a break... no girl on any “second” team would pass up chance to move up.

Looking forward to having the talented Heros White players come join my daughter on her team. Heros loss will be our win. I am sure other teams will as well. Tierney will not care and the White will be decimated and pick up Rec players. But Tierney won’t care. Green will be Green, she will have the money from White and it will be a true top and bottom team and parents will stop complaining. Welcome to the Heros mentality.

M&D parents and players should be worried. I’m guessing the Black team will all move down to Red. Black will look different with new players and parents. Mary is not fooling around she is competitive and wants a team who works hard and wants to win. Going to the beach and missing practices is not an option anymore. New coach new standards.

You all are certifiably nuts. You have no idea. Save these posts so that when your daughter is done club, you can go back and read your nonsense. Stop caring so much about your own ego and being on the best team. Start caring more about your daughter. Please. Before you ruin her high school club experience.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2026 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 06/27/21 08:00 PM
Girls will get recruited from other teams. Without a doubt. But the college coaches that watch those other teams are far and few between. Yes, both my daughters played. One for a top tier team and one for another less intense club. So I have experience from both perspectives. My youngest took much longer.

The question you must answer, where is the best fit for your daughter. Where will she play. Being on Heros Green, M&D Black, or SW Blue means zero if she is getting 5-10 minutes. But you have to know getting colleges to look at her from a TLC or Checkers is going to be much more difficult.

Good luck in your decisions.

Some clubs will only get d3.

Agreed. For many, especially at the IAAM schools. they won’t even play all four years of high school. For those that do play in college, it won’t be at your big name schools and most won’t even play all four years there. Like I have posted on here before folks, those are just the cold hard facts and wasting your time about which 2026 girls club is better just ruins the experience for your daughter. You won’t get these days back so why don’t you just enjoy watching her play and stop worrying about the ridiculous recruiting nonsense and which club will get her seen. I have run this race and just want to pass along a little hard earned knowledge.

Not an mnd parent, and I get what you’re saying but they still win more than all teams but maybe 2 or 3. If you say they didn’t do well because of the coach, how do you explain them winning so much? There is more talent on that team than you think.

You have to ignore this troll. To say an entire team will move down even though they have played heroes green harder and probably beat them more than any other team ever has is a joke. He/she clearly has major schadenfreude about 7th grade girls lacrosse players for whatever reason.

That being said, the troll has a point about a new regime at MandD at the 2026 grade level. But all teams will look different. All the top teams will change/add 5-6 girls. Based on what i have seen the past couple years there is a lot of talent on MandD already, and with real club coaching and a few more "key" additions, it will be heroes green and MandD black at the top around that area for years to come. As HS classmates and future teammates in college, hopefully the players and their parents of both programs will respect and root for each other. It's probably a good thing that heroes white is imploding. Word is some of those parents were toxic and it showed at games and trickled down to their daughters' attitudes.

Lots of rocks being thrown here and there is really no need to call out any individuals by name... There are loud parents on EVERY team, obnoxious parents on MOST teams. there are more than a few parents on M&D Black that are very vocal talking / yelling about players on their own teams and opposing teams.

You should cheer for the girls. Not ridicule refs, or comment on players. Why not call Randal out? He has been doing it for years and made the 26 Green Team toxic. Parents won’t consider trying out because of him and his garage band of commentaries. Why do you think White is just as good? One reason parents don’t want their kids around him or his antics.
Difference between Randal and other loud parents, common dignity. For a laugh Randal makes a comment but could care less the damage it inflicts to the person or kid. Call it like it is and yes called him out by name because everyone in the 26 and older age brackets knows the “Heros Dad” that acts like this.

Only about 20 can make the team. Have to understand the coach gets to make that call about what level she thinks kids will be successful at. Plenty of spots for players at other clubs besides the top 3 in the area.

BS? What is BS about it? Heros Green eating their own to make sure they don’t lose again to White? Or Randal is obnoxious? No BS. All True.

Other clubs move kids up and down. It’s club and part of it. HOWEVER, parents in other clubs actually cheer for their other teams. Green would never do that at 26 age bracket.

You can not escape it in girl’s club lacrosse. Every team has their parent issues. Ignore the noise, focus on your daughter, and go anywhere but Heros.

Look at the 2022 recruits to see what clubs send their players where. Lots has changed the past two recruiting classes and not because of Covid. Lots of kids recruited to top D1 from other areas of the country - not just the hot beds. Playing for the top Maryland clubs is no longer a guarantee of a top D1 spot. Lots of super talented players in the Maryland area 2022 class have gone Top D2 and Top D3 instead. I would say M&D 22 Black is the only local club that had a lot of players going to top programs. Many of the other top clubs in the area still have many players without homes.

All of Heros 2022 is going D1. Play for the top 3 clubs on Black, Green, or Blue and you will be going D1 if you want.

Incorrect. All of Heros 22 is not going D1. The team is not 100% recruited. Only SW is.

Which is odd because I consider SW the weakest of the big three. They can't compete at the 27 or 28 levels. I guess they will get better each year, prob take the back end of M&D and Hero's too.

SW is the best club in the area in terms of getting their girls recruited. And I'm the parent of a former M&D player that is going to a high end D1 school. YJ and SW are the best without question when it comes to pushing their girls to schools. As has been said here several times, it makes no difference what teams are good in middle school. By the time they get to 11th grade it is rinse and repeat in terms of commitments. SW and M&D are 1 and 1a. Hero's usually lags behind a little but not every year as with the 22s. Was definitely the case with the 19s-21s.

I'm a little green here, but if your playing in the A brackets, and going against the top clubs, won't you get recruited as long as you are performing? What does the club do better than others? I mean plenty of clubs in the state get D1 commits right?

Club contacts and relationships have A TON to do with which girls go to which schools. The coaches are watching the girls play but they're also talking to the club coaches and directors about players constantly. Carol Rose is the best in the biz at getting her girls recruited. There's no question about it. The McLaughlin's and Robinson's are very good as well. This is why players flock to these clubs at the high school level. There are plenty of other clubs in the area that play in A brackets that don't come close in terms of D1 commits that the top 3 in the area do.

The directors definitely play a huge part in it. The directors put pressure on coaches to offer their kids. I've been told this directly by several coaches. Carol Rose is well known for it. It's why YJ had so many 2021s(5 or 6 if I remember correctly) committed prior to the recruiting rules changing and M&D and SW had a combined 1 commit at the time.

It's both. There is a trust with college coaches in coming to see those players as well as how they turn out in college. SW is probably top dog there, from the DMV, with the current collegiate players.

TLC struggles against the big 3 but for example; however, some of the best players in the country come from there - Sarah Cooper at Cuse and Grace Haus at UF for example.

Relationships help get you looks. Especially on clubs outside of the bigger names.

I believe the Robinson’s are out with CR primary focus on FL. I expect a big drop off starting with the 23s. Top 3/4 will go big name but rest will fall off.

Rising 8th grade parents worried about college recruiting???? Have we lost our mind? Are we there? I hope my daughter still loves lax and doesn’t quit. From older parents, they said their daughters just quit because of this pressure. My daughter still loves lax and when the time comes for recruiting I will worry.

I can tell you now, the talent on the 2027 team of M&D, they will not drop off. Currently #1 in the nation. Lots of talent. Yes, I get they are rising 7th graders.

Scott does a phenomenal job and has great relationship with coaches. M&D isn't going anywhere. SW has always done a little better in terms of getting their girls to top schools however. They will stay 1 and 1a. That's not changing just because Chris went to FL. He's been there several years now and girls are still coming to M&D. It's happening right now with the 26s as they're about to head to HS.

Incorrect. All of Heros 22 is not going D1. The team is not 100% recruited. Only SW is.


To be clear, all had D1 offers. 2 girls are targeting NESCAC schools and havent committed.

True that the college coaches aren’t looking at 8th graders but smart to get with a club now who has great recruiting power. As the parent of a 2022 who has been through the process I can assure you that the recruiting director- college coach relationships do play a significant factor in who gets recruited where. We are not from one of the top DMV clubs and my daughter’s team has always played A bracket at tournaments. She also has an excellent lacrosse resume but recruiting was a struggle - especially w Covid. Knowing what I know now I would’ve chosen a different club for her back in 8th grade. She ended up committing to a great D1 program but she could’ve gone even higher had she been with a top program. Many of her teammates eventually found great homes too but they also could’ve gone higher with the right club.

According to Sports Recruits here is a recruiting comparison between Skywalkers and M&D for the current 2022 recruiting class.


Players going to schools ranked in the top 5 on IWLCA' s final poll:
M&D 22 has 3 players going to top 5 schools (Two BC, and one UNC)
Skywalkers 22 has zero players going to top five schools

Players going to schools ranked in the top 10 in IWLCA's final poll:
M&D has 8 players going to top 10 ranked schools (1 Duke, 1 Florida, 3 UMD, 2 BC, 1 UNC)
Skywalkers has 3 players going to top 10 ranked schools: (2 Notre Dame, 1 Duke)

Players going to Top 25 schools in IWLCA final poll:
M&D has 14 girls going to top 25 schools
Skywalkers has 11 girls going to top 25 schools

Total recruits committed in the 2022 class:
M&D has 29 girls currently committed
Skywalkers has 22 girls currently committed

If stalking SR for the number of top 10 D1 recruits a team has is your behavior now when they are rising 8th graders, you are doomed. Really doomed. Why don’t you worry about your own daughter and what’s best for her, not what’s best for you.

"SW is the best club in the area in terms of getting their girls recruited. And I'm the parent of a former M&D player that is going to a high end D1 school."

I simply saw this quote, and the subsequent discussion and was curious as to how accurate it was. I simply did a Google search for Skywalkers lacrosse recruits, and then another search for M&D lacrosse recruits and then posted the results. Below are the links to the Google search.

You don't have to stalk anyone to find this information. Bottom line the results of the search are both Skywalkers and M&D are great clubs in producing college prospects. Kudos to the coaches and players in both organizations.

Of course there are years where the statement doesn't hold true. But overall SW has definitely done a little better. As I said they're close, 1 and 1a. SW is the original club team around here and have outstanding contacts. M&D has always had a connection with MD. College coaches love how SW girls play. They are very aggressive and ready for the physicality of the college game. Like I said, my daughter played for M&D and did fine. But I don't think there's a huge argument on this from most. Now I would have never let my daughter play for MM so I'm not advocating for that either, just making a comment on recruiting.

Here’s a thought…great, commit to a top school but who says those girls will ever see the field. Some of those girls have been told out right that they won’t play. So what matters more-saying you are going to the top 10 school or playing, if they really love the sport, they want to be on the field, not just part of their practice squad.

Top 5 or 10 means nothing when you ride a bench for 4 years while not getting a dime of athletic money. But you can play dress up with all the official team swag, so there’s that. For some, that is what it has been about all along.

Very true! One of the M&D22 top 5 commits has to wait and enter with the 23 class (gap year), isn’t getting any money and will never see the field. But hey, she gets to play dress up and look cool on signing day. Parent ego at its finest!

hey WHERE HAS ALL THE HEROS WHITE HOOPLA GONE?
the bubble was burst and just like that kaboom!!! funny to read all the previous comments about white being the best team but now less than a month later everything has changed

so now green 26 takes a few good players off white and the rest of the white team implodes and really it is very simple becuz white was never going to be green
really it was always about the white goalie she was the difference maker and probably on green next season
we will see in the coming weeks what heros green and other A level lacrosse teams think of player fallout when tryouts are completed and see who makes what team or not

Why are you so obsessed with who goes in and off of Hero’s white. If it doesn’t pertain to you why do you care so much

Some of the recruitment process is NOT related to talent. Of course, that's a large part of it. But the program has to prepare girls to have the right attitude and work ethic. These girls that think they are the best thing since sliced bread (fed by their programs coaches and leaders, and their parents) are going to find themselves at the back end of the recruiting line. This is why I think SW does well. They work with the girls from the start focusing on team, attitude and similarly work with the parents about a good "approach" to being a parent of a high level athlete. That's why many D1 coaches look at SW players, because they know they are getting the entire package, a talented athlete with the attitude that they are part of a unit, not just a superstar.

What about the games they play that not every player gets on the field to be seen ?

White still is the best team. Just look at the Green record over the last month. Enough said, it’s not fourth grade anymore.

Seems odd that players already have spots without tryouts. What BS. Once again Tierney making the rules as she goes for Green. Don’t be without a chair when the music stops. Go to another program. Heroes yet again proves why they can’t be #1 when it counts (Recruiting Years) they eat their own rather than build a program.

If girls are white have been moved to green, they have basically been trying out all season. They know if you should be moved or not, no need to wait for official tryouts

I watched Heros White LOSE to M and D black at the one tourney. What I did watch and was disgusted by the players and their parents. M and D and the YJ were in the finals. Heros white team sat on the sidelines and cheered for YJ. Watched that team yell at M and D players and berate them. Unreal. So yes all these comments about Heros being a toxic club saw it first hand. Sad thing about all this is these girls will at one time or another be in school together and play lax together. Then again it stems from their classless parents and trickles down to the kids.

100% agree - I have first hand watched awe behavior by the parents, players & even the coaches from an older Hero's team. I would dread my daughter ever playing against them - for that reason ONLY.

I watched the Green/White game at the NGLL finals and there was a single dad that was embarrassing the entire Heros program with his mouth and behavior. Why he has not been booted or at a minimum told to shut up is beyond me.

Because that dad (Randal) has been in the program for years with other older girls and the club have grown to tolerate Randal. A blow-hard wanna-be living through his daughters. SAD, but Heros tolerate him and have for years

Green already recruited who they want. If you’re looking to joining another club, go to SW, MnD, Coppermine.

It's a tough decision. Unfortunately, getting a spot on an "A" team means knowing someone or getting seen before actual tryouts. Or starting on that team EARLY on. It happens with a lot of the "A" teams - M&D, TLC, etc.

Trust me with MG in charge of M&D 2026 she will be looking for better talent for the next couple years. She brought 3 new girls into the 2021 team summer after 9th grade.

He is awful, loud and his comments are hurtful to the girls and parents. He is toxic and spills his negative comments to all who will listen. The coaches and parents tolerate him and not ONE will stand up to him. It’s a shame his wife won’t tell him to be quiet but she stands there and belittles the girls as well. So they are in hindsight a perfect pair.

I would think if that is happening, then that player is not of the same talent level as the other players who are getting most of all of the playing time. Coaches and clubs want to win and they aren't out to "get" a player by not playing their strongest athletes. If a player isn't getting much time, its either an ability / talent issue, attitude issue or commitment issue (missing games or practices etc...). I don't have a daughter in this age group so having said that I am not familiar with the specifics for this age group. But I think the situation I outlined is probably true at all of the top programs. The good news is there are other teams to go to, just make sure that the young lady is trying out for a team that is talent/athletic appropriate and that her commitment level matches that of the team. I never think its wrong to be on a clubs second team if your child isn't quite as athletic or naturally aggressive. (maybe its good to be one of the stronger players on a new team) or if your daughter hasn't decided their level of commitment matches that of a high level club team. Its about confidence and happiness for your daughter.

Are you not following the thread? White in reference to Heros White. The team that has a green and white team. The white team that their parents insist is the best team around. Not sure how you didn’t pick up on that.

White or Green, doesn’t matter at Heros. Both are equally as talented. Ask CR how many heros girls have come to M&D over the years. And then ask TA how many M&D players have moved to Heros. Like someone said, when heros coaches are pulling their own kids and putting them at M&D….

The fact that these 2 teams play for the same Club-but clearly there is so much hostility towards one another is enough to not want to play for that Club at all.

Not anymore. They're already scattering. Will be interesting what will happen with the girls that end up being cut from M&D due to the influx of players coming to tryouts from other teams. Hope parents are being realistic and making sure their daughter has an option if she's on the bubble. Going to be a lot of changes.

After green , black and blue what is option number 4 now ? Doesn’t sound like heros white will be it.

M&D red? Hoco ? Coppermine ?

That's pretty lofty assuming White will lose that many girls where Red would over take them considering they are starting from zero.

That's pretty lofty assuming White will lose that many girls where Red would over take them considering they are starting from zero.

Is there even going to be a White team? Rumor has it they don't even have coaches anymore. After their 4-5 call ups to Green from White, including the coach, it seems like they are all scattering to M&D, Skywalkers and Hoco.

Posting about it is not the problem, the fact that they are there is the problem. I feel bad for the SW players who will now be extra on edge heading into tryouts as half of another club's team just showed up at their practice.

Why even bother with tryouts this year? These teams are going to be set for next season before the week is out at this rate.

That’s just how it goes esp with SW.
You are always replaceable-whether it be Hero’s or California (SW really likes that).
They have every right to do that. At this age and for your age group next year be prepared for lots of movement with girls coming in and the out ones going to clubs like Coppermine or TLC. Never feel entitlement with SW.

Actually, that won't be too much of a problem at SW Blue because this age group for the blue team was a small squad. I believe i saw them at the last tournament and I they had like one sub. So, although a few girls may go to SW White, there is actually a good bit of room at SW Blue for additional talented players without affecting a mass group of the current players.

There is room everywhere for additional talented players! M&D, Heros, SWs everyone has room for additional talented players.
The issue is will the programs cut the weak players that have been there too long or have family ties. Some programs just can't seem to cut out the cancer.

Mount Carmel not known as a power house program. Plus it’s quite far from the typical Heros practice locations in HoCo. Going to be a challenge for the coach to balance her obligations to her HS team and the distant club team.

Your comment makes no sense.

Lay off the cookies? What are you referring to? See a Heros parent being a toxic degrading person. I get it you are frustrated because your daughters position is in jeopardy so you have to belittle everyone around you. You just proved everyone’s point on this site. Grow up

Not true . Getting a spot on A team either requires knowing someone or being insanely good ( fast , good stickwork ) and better than the girls whose moms and dads are friends with coach . You can get on by being an amazing athlete.

You obviously don't know MG. There's going to be a lot of turnover on the M&D team which is unfortunate for the girls that have been there for a few years but it's just the way things work in high level club sports. She's going to take girls that will both help the team win and that she feels she can develop into a cohesive unit.

Ok, can someone explain why their is so many references to MG on this blog for M&D and not much discussion around who is listed as the head coach of that team on the M&D website? Having read through this blog there is a lot of reverence for MG and how she is going to change everything but she is one of two assistant coaches right? Shouldn’t their be more talk about the head coach KL? Just trying to understand that situation.

Omg club lacrosse is supposed to be the best . If Skywalkers players are on edge then they clearly aren’t confident in their abilities . Competition never killed anybody and posting from practice means you the parent are the scared that your kid may be cut.

MG is a local well regarded Hs coach. She was an assistant with this team, knows the players and will have major say over who stays and goes.

She was assistant but was the head coach in terms of on field direction.

It is very important for the Lacrosse Cabal to destroy the White team. You can't have the White/B team running around beating the best teams/clubs in the country. It disrupts the lacrosse ecosystem. The trolls are in full force online to promote chaos and disinformation to make everyone panic. My D is not of this year, but I can sense dark forces at work.

Yep. Totally. A bunch of good White team players making the Heros Green team and making the best team in the age group better = imploding. If white team parents can’t handle it, their kids can work hard to get better or dominate other clubs like they’ve been doing. What’s the big deal

Who says any of them get offers? People have been attending practices prior to tryouts for years . You really think if you are presently on the team that tryouts count for anything? They already know who they will drop and who they will keep based on your performance over the past year . Stay confused my friend. You have a lot to learn.

So I am confused. Four Hero's white players were invited to join the Green team already? If that is true Hero's may as well abolish their tryouts in the future.

Maybe these players were told they may be added to the Green team after tryouts in an effort to keep them with the club.

Wouldn't be the first time. DD has a teammate who was told this very thing from Hero's - then it didn't happen. So she left the next year.

Why would a parent decide to accept an "offer" to move up ? If a club thought your daughter was talented enough then why did you need threaten to leave before they offer to move her up? And if they do move her up under the threat of you taking her out of the program, is she really going to get any playing time? Sounds like a bad all around situation for the girls.

Not really, SW has a policy of allowing players to check out their club practices. It’s not just for HW players and it doesn’t mean they are getting offers. It’s more of a let’s get to know each other situation to see if you want to come to tryouts. More open than M&D that’s for sure.

If Heros white is a B team then why would M and D take these girls. A team that is listed as a B team is a B team. A bunch of parents embellishing their daughters team and athletic abilities. So M and D is seeking sloppy seconds? I guess the next season will be interesting. Oh and don’t come at me with look at their record… still a B team and that’s all they will ever be.

This is a silly comment. With in Hero’s they may have been the “B” team but they were still better than everyone else’s A team. Going to be a lot of hurt egos when Sally gets moved to the B team at a lot of clubs. Poor parents.

If they are just a B team come play them. Your post is just mean spirited and hopefully it makes you feel better. The record speaks for itself and it’s not the girls fault that the Green team won’t give the girls a shot to move up. Has never happened and won’t happen.

The team can be a B team, doesn’t mean their players are B players. You’re smarter than that, I just know it. Or at least I hope.

OK Pops. “Sloppy seconds” is not really the description of a group of athletes who belonged on the A team from the beginning. Their B team has probably walked all over your A team, considering they can beat most, including Green and my daughter’s M&D Black team, as they have proved. Not sure why you have so much anger other than the fact your child must not have been chosen for M&D and it’s eating at your that they want White players.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2026 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 07/10/21 12:34 PM
Where does it state they are a B team? White automatically makes it B? This is the problem with clubs that have 2 teams-you ASSUME the 2nd is worst then the 1st, in this case (along w/ some of their other age groups) is not the case! Chill

Thanks for you standing up for the girls the fact that the white team beat the green team was a game changer . The whole 26 bracket will shake up as all get better, baffling why Heros wouldn’t preserve two high caliber a teams and dominate the 26 I guess the A team coach and TA did not like it . So the white team will fill spots on other clubs . Heros should be interesting when the White players move to green and upset the green parents when sally loses playing Time . Take care of your kids !!! ADULTS at play 😂

I wouldn’t know this “Randall “ if you didn’t always bring his darn name up. No one should be talking about kids and I don’t stand for that but if you want to bring peoples names up be man enough to sign your name ... address the person and not a public forum that people actually use to get information from.

Randall got his feelings hurt. Shocking because he could care less about calling kids out for their play or talking trash. Randall getting a piece of his own medicine


I wouldn’t know this “Randall “ if you didn’t always bring his darn name up. No one should be talking about kids and I don’t stand for that but if you want to bring peoples names up be man enough to sign your name ... address the person and not a public forum that people actually use to get information from.

BTW Randall is a parent NOT a child. Even though he acts like a toddler on the sidelines. Parents have addressed Randall in person and he doesn’t care what you have to say. So go ahead Karen, go and comfort Randall and tell him how wonderful he is. Parents and kids are tired of him being a bully on and off the field.

For white, Goals against has remained consistent. It’s the goals scored that dropped off due to injured. Club coaches don’t work on development of whole team. Coach looks great as long as star scores and they can get the W.

Maybe you could just stop and think for a minute. The girls are thirteen and are hurting from what is happening to the team that they have built. For them it was never about the wins, it was about playing a game they love with people that have become like family to them. I get that poking at other adults can be fun, but the girls see this and it’s making a bad situation worse. Can everyone just stop and think about what you would do if someone said the trash talk directly to you kid’s face? You would go nuts, as you should. Let’s find some strength to grow up and knock it off.

You mean 3-1 with 3 expected wins? At least that's an improvement over the previous tourney. Give them credit for keeping things together enough to win those three games.

It is going to be interesting to see how they do this weekend with a few invites to M&D Black and several to M&D Red hanging over their heads. Same with H Green, the current M&D team and even Skywalkers. It will be a sh*tsh0w for all the top girls at this weekends tourney with M&D tryouts completed and invites possibly going out before the tournament.

Yep…spoken like a true Heros parent. Who cares you lost in OT. I am shocked excuses about limited number of players, heat, or ref bad calls did not get posted. It’s a LOSS. The thought of Heros White being a top team is finished.

It is pretty well known White team is done in its current form, but there is no denying they are a top 4 team with Green, Pride and YJ. They all play exciting good lacrosse games to watch and girls respect each other more than most parents realize. Saw girls consoling other teams yesterday after loses. Girls left it all on 100 degree turf yesterday and they all appreciated the competition. Teams will look different next year but competition will live on.

M&D will take be in the fold with MG and influx of new players from other clubs. Once the teams are set, it will take a bit but White will go into the B bracket moving forward.

Question regarding the recent Junior National Championships this past week. I noticed many of the bigger clubs (M&D for example) were not there. There was an age requirement which stated players needed to be born after 9/1 to be eligible to play with their club team. Players born prior to 9/1 would have to play with their older club team if this makes sense. It begs the question, were some teams not entered because their rosters contained too many girls born prior to 9/1. I realize this gets into "reclassification" territory, but one of the parents brought this up at the tournament and I thought it was interesting.

This tournament is normally at the end of July after most teams are done for the summer. And it was mid-week this year, not opportune for families.

If you want to talk age, I recommend going to the north east thread. This topic has been exhausted for years.

M&D and SW haven't played in that tournament in a long time. It's in mid july. It used to be weeks after the typical club tournaments ended. There's typically far less competition there than a normal weekend tournament. M&D and SW would have no issue entering an on age team at any of those levels. The holdback myth constantly floated by LI parents/coaches isn't a real thing with girls. Sure there are a few here or there that may have July or August birthdays, but girls aren't repeating grades for athletic purposes the way the boys at MIAA schools do.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2026 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 07/16/21 11:31 AM
So how many times do the LIYJ need to beat HG to move into the top spot of the US club lax rankings? Seems a little weird they beat them in the last two tournaments but are still ranked lower.

My daughter’s M&D team has more holdbacks than my son’s team. They would not have been able to participate without having to leave players home.

Most of them are also heading over to Skywalkers tryouts. Next year the same thing will happen and movement will happen again. However it’s great to see everyone trying out for different clubs.

Not sure what your issue is but there were girls from HG at M&D tryouts that were only offered spots on red. Half the M&D team will be new. Girls from all over. MG had the draw they were hoping for. 85 girls at tryouts.

That HOCO goalie that showed up on Thursday. I have always thought she was an excellent goalie and she performed really well. I am hoping she makes Black and gives the White goalie some competition. Because those two girls together will be a great duo.

Look at the amount of games played last year. Heroes had 44 games… where YJ Manning had maybe 12? Covid played a big role but those rankings will not budge much. The top 5, are a solid top 5.

The rankings are formula based and not just about 2 teams going head-to-head. What about the teams beating YJ? Like Hero's White and Pride? That's why on the 25s YJ Spallina isn't even ranked because they have only played a few games in 2 years.

Not sure what emails you are talking about. The girls on the black 26 team were told today at the tournament what team they were being placed on. Each girl one by one was called over and told either black or red. So no email all done face to face. Great day for some, sad day for others.

Worst advice ever . No one should ever take m and d red over Skywalkers blue. Anyone who believes that is insane . SW maybe won’t be that strong now but they will catch up. It’s inevitable. So the Edmonsons can keep their red team ... when it’s all said and done it’s still not top team.

You think you will be the exception but M&D red player RARELY move up to Black. They will make you believe that you have a chance so you will continue to pay the annual fees and eventually you will realize you will never move to black but by than you will not have any options at any other club too. You will have missed the window to switch clubs. Very few Red players get recruited to play in college. You are better off switching clubs and playing on an A team. And believe me, LE and TE will not make a difference. TE will not know how to coach when he isn’t running all plays through #6!

Invites were sent out to girls from other teams. Players and parents were asked to keep it quiet until after the weekend. Parents failed to do so and word got out that invites had gone out. What else were they supposed to do? No playoffs now anyway. Part of club lacrosse. Everyone knew there were major changes coming to M&D 2026. This shouldn't be a surprise to anyone.

Not sure what emails you are talking about. The girls on the black 26 team were told today at the tournament
what team they were being placed on. Each girl one by one was called over and told either black or red. So no email all done face to face. Great day for some, sad day for others.
WHY would that be done during a tournament? That has to be the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard!

And to do it behind the bleachers between games? Amazing!

Was standing at the Pride tent and saw the girls going in and out one by one. My heart hurt for the girls who were moved down. Some were crying and others you could tell by their shock of disbelief. Unreal how shallow Robinson and his staff coaches really are. Doing it privacy is one thing but when you have the Heros parents and players hovering over the team and your own teammates…. A better place or time could have facilitated. To the girls who got cut from both teams and to the girls who got moved down… you will do great things in life, this is a life lesson and don’t let any of this derail your confidence.

It is all about winning. Don't fool yourself, its not about player development. It happens on every team not just M & D, Heros, YJ, and others. Parents will complain to the directors until changes are made. The girls are left in the wake. All these girls are working the butts off and playing to the best of their ability. I guess this is a life lesson but to have this done to 13 year old girls is terrible.

As an outsider (DMV parent), this is definitely not a good look for M&D. The Heros green/white saga also doesn't bode well but it's disappointing to see all of this in what we here in the DMV area consider the "gold" standard of clubs. Obviously the truth isn't all told on a message board here but it definitely doesn't put anything in a good light. I hope they see their mistakes and learn from this to fix how situations like this are handled in the future.

The coach of the year at St Paul’s, her side kick assistant coach and Robinson lurking in the back ground. Started pouring down rain and moved the girls to underneath the bleachers. None of the coaches seemed to back an eye as long as they had it done by the end of Saturday they were just checking off the boxes. Talk about having no heart or souls.

If I am reading this right it sounds like the coaches took the time to communicate with the girls in person. If that is accurate, I think that is a good thing. The old school way of posting a list and not communicating with the players is what is gutless. It makes you wonder if the parents complaining about this are the same ones that went on here complaining about their former coach. There is no easy way to tell an athlete they didn't make a team. Watch HBO"s Hard Knocks when an NFL coach has to tell a player they didn't make a team. The coaches say it is the most difficult thing they have to do.

The power trip of the “side kick assistant” as you put it is amazing. Every girl on the team, black,red or cut has done more in their lacrosse career than she has.

100% this. The issue was that word had gotten out because parents couldn't keep things quiet until after the weekend. Since word was spreading the coaches and SR decided they owed the girls in person communication on why things worked out the way they did. It's pretty surprising that you think a better solution would just be to post the new roster on the M&D website today. Yes girls were upset. But at least they were told why it happened and received feedback from the coaches.

This is a false narrative. Not all the girls work their butts off. Many parents think their kids are working hard until they realize the work that other kids are putting in.

Barely beat PA Express, tied LI Liberty at the last minute and tied BBL Elite. All plays still seem to be going through his daughter even though there were better options available some times. 6 is still very predictable and you could see how defenders have caught on. I'm sure many of those families are happy to be finished with club lacrosse and all of his garbage.

I am sure they are fine. I have heard many stories that supported the overdue coaching change. And some parents were already saying that if their daughters did not make black this summer, it was mostly because of him. Those girls were never tested at tryouts before this year since not many top tier players wanted to play for him (or he rejected players, like the one that wanted to be the full time goalie). If you are implying that they wish he had stayed as coach so their daughters could stay on black but continue to ride that roller coaster and not develop as a player, then you are delusional.

The coaches and SR did the responsible thing and talked to the girls one on one. Now whether or not tryouts should have been before the last tournament is another question.

Your last sentence is the core issue. It is alway a race between the clubs to hold tryouts first. Having tryouts before the last tournament (or Heros telling girls on White that they are getting moved up to Green) is ridiculous. Even if the girls do not find out the results until the tournament is over, they are still a wreck from the week of tryouts. M&D broke them up into A and B groups at tryouts! And did the black team even practice before their last tournament together? I heard offers were made to girls from outside clubs before the weekend, and is that fair to the current players?

As others have stated, a face-to-face conversation with the player sounds better to me as opposed to a posting on a website and even a phone call to the parent. But to do it in public like that is rough. It sounds like they could have moved to a better area. It looks like that team still did well on Sunday. Only two games though...

That attitude won't serve them well on their college team. Plus most 2022 teams are done with recruiting for the girls who want to continue to play in college.The competition still put in the effort to win. When you play as a team and for your teammates, it doesn't matter if you are heading to the beach after the tournament. You play hard for your team and you win. I think this shows the real core problem of that team. They have been slipping the past couple of years. Everyone plays for themselves.

M&D should NEVER have held tryouts before the season is over. This is the root cause of all these issues. Their tryouts used to be in August - then right after midatlantic - now before Midatlantic. It’s despicable

They’re so worried about snagging players and getting new red teams that they’ve created this fiasco of heartbreak and embarrassment for kids going from 10th grade down to 4th grade

It’s Despicable

So you'd have been ok with half the team being cut by seeing they weren't listed when the roster was posted or by their parents getting a phone call? Boys club teams do the same. Crabs had tryouts last week before they went to UMass for National Championships. It is what it is. If you haven't realized how cut throat club lacrosse is yet I guess you found out this week. Heros offered spots on green weeks ago. Was that despicable as well? You really think SW hasn't already offered spots to girls? Welcome to high level club lacrosse.

Both points are incorrect. The 22 black team is not all committed. There were also players on the team who wanted to be there to play in their last tournament together. It was very clear in the first game a couple of players had no desire to be there and it ruined the rest of the day for the players who did, and for the players who still had coaches watching.

Seriously. The Aces team is the same way now. Getting good results with a difference-maker in net and an offense that only relies on 2 or 3 girls. Put a goalie like that on SW Blue this past year and they would have won a tournament too.

Not an ax to grind. Just a 22 parent who had to deal with it for years. Just trying to send a warning. Completely your call but hope your kids don’t pay the price for it.

Totally agree! Disgraceful to do that to girls that age. Or, to any age for that matter! Much better ways that could have been handled. Classless

They are teachers in their day jobs, really shameful, would never want one of these clowns around my kids.

For all of the M&D parents who had an issue with “the nice guy” coach, how do you feel now?

I think the majority of you all who have a problem with a coach telling a kid they are being moved down or cut don’t need to have your kids play CLUB sports! They will have to deal with not making a team and other rejections in their lives. It’s a part of sports and life. Just have your kids play Rec and stop complaining about every coach and every team .

It would be interesting to see which teams got better, worse or stayed the same.

From what I’ve heard (small world). Basically teams that net gained players were up, net lost were down and I didn’t have info on some.

Up: Black, Green, Blue, Pride, Integrity, Red (didn’t exist), Coppermine (educated guess, could be wrong)

Even/Don’t know: TLC, Hoco, Stars, Redahirts, NEMS, FCA

Down: White, MD United, LBC

There are lots of soft landing spots for all of the girls regardless of situation.

Curious to hear how Pride is up/gained? They just had a mass exodus at the 25 level and the freefall is extending to other years now.

But the post said be ready to pay to play which insinuates something completely different than paying a high tuition to attend the school.

Was not there, heard they had limited numbers and know they lost their number 1 player to Black. That’s a big loss, but opportunity for others to shine.

Seems like the point was just that you actually need to pay vs other miaa schools that have booster funded spots.

Yes, it looks like 3 players from MDU are on Black's roster, including the player who took every draw and might have scored every goal in one game I watched this summer. Also with one Coppermine and one Pride on Black's roster, you have to assume those players were in the top 3 players on those teams.

Pay attention? Oh I have been paying attention. Listen up buttercup you are part of the problem, learn some manners to start. Second you need to keep your tone in check. Also I bet you talk to your daughter like she is toddler and then in return talks to her teammates like they are dirt. If you are this bitter about the red coach then get off this forum and go tell him and her in person. Stop trying to prove you know it all because you don’t. Sorry your daughter didn’t live up to your hype.

Thanks K and B for your input. If I recall you only had 25 tryout for your 26 team. Took players that have never played club lacrosse. You both need to reevaluate what you have going on because as an outsider it’s NOT working.

SPSG offers partial scholarships including some full scholarships to "talented" students in addition to financial aide to those in need. I could be wrong but doubt very much their recent Championship team was comprised of 100% full paying tuition student athletes.

Tough sell on the Shore. Hard to get girls to drive East, not so hard to go west. If all the girls over there stayed that team would be great.

Two players on the team received a named scholarship that is given to one girl per class when they enter in 9th grade but there are no athletic requirements to it. There is no other financial aid other than need based. I have no idea what everyone's financial situation is. I'm sure many families receive some sort of aid but it's not in the form of scholarship other than the one named award. No team is comprised of 100% full tuition students. All private schools give some form of need based aid.

Unless you are willing to drive to MD there is really nowhere for a 26 Pride girl to go. Other DMV clubs are pretty weak, but Pride needs to change otherwise the 2025 bloodbath could repeat.

26 Pride girls looked very impressive to end the season and looked like they enjoyed playing together. There is a void from NOVA to Howard county/B'more beltway so Pride needs to keep girls or that gap will get bigger.

If you do not win the 1 named scholarship (as mentioned non-athletic based) or one of the 2 scholarships (roughly 8K) it is 100% needs/financial based. They may come back and find some aid for your daughter but nowhere close to what the other schools can offer.

Just my 2 cents.

My daughter has played against 26 Pride for several years, they have always been tough. Honestly kind of weird seeing girls go to and from there since they are so far away but I guess kids who live south of hoco could do either.

The challenge has been, and mention of the 25 Pride exodus related to, its very very new HS program. That “spooks” some going into HS years. Many have also raised more program wide concerns - not related to the 26 year - so while some seem happy, many are not. The program can also have a strong affiliation with one private HS which draws some to it, but may turn others off. What happens with the 26s going into HS will be interesting.

There is definitely a geographic gap they are working to fill, but most girls from the team are VA based and certain practice locations can be deep into VA.

Between the newness of the Pride HS program and issues with the Director their top team 2025 is basically no more. Roughly 40-50% of the girls have gone to Capital or scattered to programs like MC Elite. That is why they withdrew from Mid Atlantic. Question is will the issues be resolved or will the 26 team follow suit?

HW girls heading south to Pride? Interesting. Practice for Pride is in Great Falls so it is not that far away from MD. Should be interesting how this parent deals with the director of Pride. She is pretty tough and does not appreciate parents complaining especially about PT.

That move makes no sense at all. Why leave a better club in Heros for a much lesser club in Pride? Plus the Pride HS program is a disaster. Find it hard to believe 3 players from a top 5 club at the 26 level would move to a DMV club with no track record of HS recruiting.

If you have ever been a part of a toxic club atmosphere, you may understand better.

Sad to say but I feel like we’ve all been a part of that.

And Pride 25s are going through something similar to Hero's - 25s have been decimated with most leaving for Capital because of issues with director.

Hero’s 2025 seeing a lot of departures? Seemed like a top team in spring but something seemed off given recent results.

Was not there, heard they had limited numbers and know they lost their number 1 player to Black. That’s a big loss, but opportunity for others to shine.
3 players to Black M and D and 3 players to M and D red.

No, the punctuation was missing so it looks confusing. They are saying the Pride 25 mess of girls leaving for Capital is a similar situation to what is happening with the Heros 26 teams.

Bucket hat parent? On a similar note, there is going to be a lot of Heros gear at area Goodwill stores. Hero's Dads sure love to rock their pre-teen/teenage club lacrosse gear!

Since Tyranny caused the implosion of HW, MDB will improve. Their biggest competition will be Heros Green which will also get better with the additions from white and cutting some others.

MD red will never be as good as Heros white was even with so many HW defectors. Top Heros white middie scorers will be on green. Dominate attack went to Pride.

Heros white will drop outta top 10 ranking. Heros green, MD black and YJ Manning will battle for top 3.

HW defectors to nova will be back north in HS

Can you predict this week’s lottery numbers too? If she was a dominant attack why didn’t green grab her?

Dominant arrack went to pride?? What a joke
More like mediocre attack, solid middie and tough defender went to pride. Dominant arrack is so funny. This ain’t wrestling

3 or 4 Hero's White players dropped off the MandD Red roster today. Were 3 of them the ones that went to Pride? Or did they get offers from Skywalkers? Skywalkers would make more sense. Why drive to VA to a program that is not remotely as good as SW for player development and recruiting? Agree it will be a surprise if they stay with Pride long-term.

Top attack did not go to Pride. There was more than one dominant attack on white and they stayed in MD.

Its funny, every player ended up on the team or level they deserved in the end. We will see over the next year how they will play. Hopefully the craziness that has been posting will die down, but I'm affraid that people will find something else to complain about. Good luck to the girls this fall!

Probably for most. What’s interesting is that the high performing teams got further away. So there is less competition team to team. In some ways it makes sense:
Practice with the best and win
In other ways it doesn’t:
Play less, less chance to lead.

I have no real opinion but it is interesting.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2026 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 07/22/21 04:28 PM
Yes, it is interesting.

My take is have your daughter play for the best team she can get playing time on. If she's on the bench for more than half the game, drop down to the team just below. It seems somewhat common sense, but parents have egos and want to see their kids on the best team regardless. I get they'll play with better girls at practice, but getting game experience is very important.

Once they get to HS and almost everything is a showcase everyone at M&D is required to play at least half the game so it's not really a concern at that point. The concern is how will she look playing against the quality of teams M&D plays. Again, the key is to be honest about how good your daughter actually is, and not how good you think or wish she was. Playing for the best team where she can compete and excel should be a priority.

By dropping down, do you mean the B team of that same organization, or a different "lower" club on the A team?

That is not the case at all. Not sure who gave you that information, but M&D in no way gives equal playing time in HS. This i know.

Well considering my daughter played for M&D it happened on her team. Was mandated by SR.

Tough defender, perhaps. but can’t clear the ball, Panics when doubled and turns the ball over.

When it comes to recruiting tourneys / showcases playing time is even but if it is a tournament final ... you play to win... I’ve been through this and it’s what happens . You play most games evenly and if you make it to the final ... you play your best .

They are either misinformed or didn’t make Skywalkers team. Pride is a good club with some good teams but should’ve went to Skywalkers. Silly move .Maybe bucket hat has bad judgement ?

He is talking about a specific kid… relates to his post about three HW girls going to Pride that someone called him out on.

Oh this is correct. What I said was in showcase tournaments which once you get to HS are what the majority of the events end up being.

Everyone played 50% in showcases on the 2021 team. Originally she tried to go 50% of the weekend and parents went crazy and it was changed to 50% of every game.

Enamored is a strong word. I jus know that when it counts they become better and always produce solid lacrosse players which is the goal right? Who cares if sally wins lax for the cure in her 7th grade year... she herself needs to get better right? Make her high school team and maybe she wants to play in college? Also a plus .. no parent coaching and they help with recruiting .. I’m not a Skywalkers parent I just have seen how this works in the long run and that’s what should matter !

Sally cares about having good coaching and learning the fundamentals in the current year. It’s not all about the club’s recruiting record in three years.

Sally developing means she is getting good coaching ... just because they aren’t winning now doesn’t mean they aren’t getting good coaching ... why don’t you go out there and coach Sally?

No name was given, vague post so nothing is wrong here. Unless you are being sensitive and thinking this person is talking about your kid. Thick skin my friend thick skin.

Wow you really are that dense .... Just leave the kids alone. It’s a simple rule . Grown ups shouldn’t bash kids.

They are either misinformed or didn’t make Skywalkers team. Pride is a good club with some good teams but should’ve went to Skywalkers. Silly move .Maybe bucket hat has bad judgement ?

Didn’t try out. Not everyone is as enamored with skywalkers as some on this board seem to be.



Enamored is a strong word. I jus know that when it counts they become better and always produce solid lacrosse players which is the goal right? Who cares if sally wins lax for the cure in her 7th grade year... she herself needs to get better right? Make her high school team and maybe she wants to play in college? Also a plus .. no parent coaching and they help with recruiting .. I’m not a Skywalkers parent I just have seen how this works in the long run and that’s what should matter !


Like I said, I'm not a fan of the skywalkers program maybe you are but I am not. I have never even heard of the coach.

I think the difference is that SW does develop the entire team, not a few of the star players (like other clubs who may likely have a parent coach). They always focus on a team environment... that is how to be a good team mate,a coachable player, attitude and work ethic. This is why their players are considered highly recruitable. Approach is more holistic, not as Sally superstar focused.

This is a joke right ? Moving kids mid year !not playing all the girls in games. People take it so they get the benefit of being in a top team. They have high level stars and low level fillers like every other club.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2026 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 07/23/21 08:20 PM
No team plays all players in a game if they are in a close game. They play their best players because they owe it to the other girls on the team to try to win. That's pretty much across the board except in high school recruiting years at a showcase. I have not seen a player moved mid year unless at the parent's request. Everyone just has to go where they think they have the best environment for their daughter and there are lots of teams out there no one mentions like Md United, TLC, NEMS etc... Take your child where you find the best fit and where she can actually play and be happy.

I don’t know what having a “parent coach” has to do with this. I don’t think parent coaches don’t approach things holistically or fail to encourage team play and ignore players with good attitudes. “Star players” (as you call them) may simply be working harder on their own time out of team practice AND may exhibit good attitudes and work ethic in practice. At this age I am not sure it is that complicated in that strong stick skills are critical and are the player’s responsibility (largely) on their own time. Practice should include aspects of individual development, but the “playing together” and lax iq are stronger components. There is only so much full team practice time each week. Of course coaches - parent or not - notice the girls who are likely working hard and consistently outside practice. I feel like this post begs the question of what you think is your daughter’s responsibility vs. the coaches. And being realistic that “star players” may actually be outworking others on the team.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2026 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 07/24/21 12:02 PM
We certainly agree that players who want to excel will do the "extra" work. Run for endurance, work stick skills etc... I think that often with a parent coach you see some favoritism of the parent's daughter and her friends or the friends of the parent. Certainly there are excellent parent coaches who do not do this. It is just a generalization. I was more responding to parents here who mentioned that on some teams, it appears all the plays run through a coaches daughter etc... And of course, we agree that there are aspects of skills for individual development. But there are differences in the team concept that you can clearly see on some teams in both the players and even in the parents on the sideline. I think we have clearly heard that through out this entire thread from many different comments. But every parent has to go where they think is best for their own child (and hopefully they consider what the child wants and is realistic about her ability to play at a specific level). There are so many options in this area so hopefully every young lady who wants to play can find a team that works for her.

my daughter played on one of the 21 teams. he has no credentials. he walked around like a coach but only kept stats. parents laughed, we called him “the bookkeeper”. call it desperate for coaches. one reason I moved my younger daughter out of skywalkers

I’ve had kids on teams with and without parent coaches. One was brutal and the kid played the same position as mine. It was obvious what would happen when there was a disproportionate pt doled to his on kid when largely everyone didn’t agree. In the end that coach got run out but not before my kid left.

A couple thoughts:
Blood is thicker than water - it never ends
No matter what it’s an issue with the parents

Hilarious what happened to Heros White. The parents thought the whole team was comprised of A level players but didn’t want to try out for Heros Green. Looks like only 5 kids from that team made an “A” level team. The 4 that went to Green amd the goalie that went to M&D black. All the rest left for other B teams. Way to let your pride get in the way.

What’s hilarious is you thinking you know what everyone was thinking and why some people decided to do something else. You may want to check your math because 11 went to other A teams…

I don’t think so. The only parent embarrassing themselves is you. Not once has a name been mentioned but yet here you are calling out all the parents on this forum and shaking your finger. Grow up. When a name is mentioned then yes it’s wrong. No names on this forum only you assuming and we all know what happens when we assume.

You mean the unhappy parents and kid that have been to 5 different clubs in 3-4 years. All they do is Complain complain complain. MG asked the red coaches to do her a favor and take this unhappy family. So yes good luck M and D Red coaches, players and parents. They are never happy.

You sure about that? A lot of the drama is still on the Black, don’t be so over confident. You know have a variety of players and parents from other teams that have a reputation of being nasty and full of drama. Plus all parents still on there. I can’t wait to see how flustered you all get throughout the year, especially when your kid isn’t playing a ton. Drama is everywhere and M and D Black and Red gained it all back on their rosters.

MG and M & D Black is going to dominate the 26 old group. Heros Green is done, these girls peaked out in 6th grade and even adding the white players will not help. MG is the best coach out there and can't wait to watch them dominate everyone. All these girls got moved for a reason and all the smack talk from everyone else will be shut down in a few months.

You must be new to M&D. You should take a deep breath because you are going to be disappointed in the coming years when it turns out to be nothing like you expected.

It wasn’t long ago that HG parents were thought of as the most arrogant lot in the age group. Well, that tide is shifting now to M&D Black parents. Congratulations, this may be the only thing that the club wins this year.

It's not like Heros is winning anything with their implosion. Plus getting shelled all summer. Talk about arrogant parents, the Heros crew takes the prize there.

Implosion? White, yes. Green, no. Added players. Won NGLL, lost in championship of Lax by the Sea, Lost by 1 in playoffs at Lax 4 the Cure, 3-1 at Live Love Lax, 3-0 then lost to Yellow Jackets by 1 in playoffs at US Nationals, and finally 2-0 at Mid-Atlantic. But yeah, they got shelled all summer.

While I agree that MG is one of the best coaches around M&D is not going to dominate anything from 8th grade on. They will win most of their games but you will see as M&D teams get to high school other teams catch up with them and sometimes beat their teams and exceed their performance and the M&D parents go bonkers. I have watched it over and over at the high school level. It's happened with the 22,23,24,and 25's. It also happened with MG' 2021 black team. Those teams are still great teams but there's no more dominance. The 26's may have been delayed by the covid year and probably would've been stronger sooner but you will see the 2026's beginning next summer will have closer games and more losses. I have seen it over the last 5 years with my daughter's grad year and the years surrounding her.

I believe it is just something that happens as the girls age but M&D parents who are used to winning are left shell shocked and upset about it. So I would not count on dominating anything.
