Any surprises with tryouts/player movements for the Maryland teams?

Can we finally end the re-class excuse for the 2023 class. There are not any freshman repeating freshman year. Crabs did not even hold a tryout. DC dogs, Hawks, Crabs are at the top of this class. Looney's took a step back and DCE and FCA about the same. No more ELITE label just the teams are what they are.

No because the holdbacks still take spots on grade based teams they do not deserve.

The whole re-class argument has gotten so old and completely overblown it's laughable.

In a few years these same clowns will be claiming there are 20 year olds on a 9th grade team.

ANYTHING to justify the reason their kids can't make Crab's or one the other top clubs when the simple reality is that some boys don't and will never have the athleticism, size, strength, skill or work ethic to play at the highest level of the sport.

Holdbacks need to hit the wall to improve actual lacrosse skills now that the other kids have hit puberty.

How is Crabs filling the spots of the kids who were 23s that are now reclassing to become 24s?

All top Clubs in Maryland and frankly now many other areas top clubs are full of holdbacks. That is a Fact ! It is not overblown at all.

While you are right in that many kids will never make it no matter what. Lacrosse has a huge amount of 5-8 to 5-11 athletic guys that compete against each other all the way up to 12th grade. Holding back makes a difference for these guys.

We arent football, BB , getting the best athletics, we are lacrosse getting the next level down with the occasionally true blue athletic stud ( who doesnt care who is held back, he is better) .

Curious how many of those kids that tried out will leave their current teams. Hopefully Rock can field a competitive team at this age group.

Nice to hear that Rock might resurrect the 2023 team. Guess there was a big push to get St. Paul's kids out there.

No one is leaving Looneys Orange to play for a possible Rock 2023 team. The one kid who might have -- because of St. Pauls connection -- is staying with Looneys.

Probably 2 teams at Rock..They picked up some good players locally as well from PA..A bunch of good Goalies and attack. Team 91 tryouts a joke...Total money grab....Koopers looking to make a resurgence at 2023 as well....Crabs had player tryout all summer...Their team is set without any tryouts.....High school a different ballgame...Most of the local teams really never play each other anymore in 9th grade....They all do their own tournament schedule with little play between each other..

Looneys and FCA not a factor for anyone not attending CHC or Loyola.... They are kind of limiting themselves to only their High School players....Good for the short term but horrible for the long term...Hence this why you are seeing an uptick with other clubs..A lot of good players out there going to others schools besides CHC and Loyola

Rock sounds like the biggest surprise if accurate. What clubs did those kids leave? Koopers was hyped after tryouts last year and lost every game in HoCo A.

If HOCO results are considered, Breakers, Rock, Team91 and Koopers really did not do well. If we are supposed to believe that a team does well then it would be by adding a few pieces not a major change.

Rumors and opinion feed this board. Kids talk with each other about tryouts and teams. Nothing amazing about it.

FCA into CH; BUYER BEWARE!! Most of these kids will never see the playing field at CH. Example.....JV and FR/So soccer had 108 kids show up for tryouts; 43 kids made those 2 teams. That means 65 kids who I am sure had expectations of playing in HS will not. I wonder if anyone of those parents/kids are having second thoughts? Lacrosse is the same the only difference is there will be more kids seeing the field if you count the sidelines as part of the field. MIAA Schools are where HS athletics dreams end for 95% of kids.

Not much overall depth at 2023 level. Sure, you have a couple super teams and there are fantastic 2023 players. But as a class, 2023 seems a lot weaker than 2022 and 2024.

They are kind of limiting themselves to only their High School players....Good for the short term but horrible for the long term...Hence this why you are seeing an uptick with other clubs..A lot of good players out there going to others schools besides CHC and Loyola

what about Gilman McD MSJ Towson JC Dulany Hereford Carroll County, PA or Harford County kids that play for those clubs. There are Loyola kids on FCA and CHC on Looneys

Please...There is CH and there is the rest.

Calvert Hall like St.Frances no longer cares about their school and community........They care about championships...How about all of those local kids that will never see the football or lacrosse fields because older kids and kids from out of the State take those positions....

Funny how Calvert Hall screamed unfairness when they hit the papers last year about Football and how they refused to play St. Frances in the regular season. Funny how CHC lacrosse operates with the same way St. Frances runs their football program.....

CH and StF do have many things in common. They both have coaches that care deeply about their players. They both have coaches that are grounded in God and moral purpose. They both have coaches that serve their community. They both have coaches that put their teams before themselves. They both have coaches that help young athletes have opportunities that many can only dream of. They both have coaches that are a blessing to Baltimore.

Booker was assigned to be the 2023 Coach for RR. His name couldn't even get the team going.

1/2 price for Rock: I know one kid on 2023 that is definitely on "scholarship" with Rock. He and a few others left another club together to go to Rock, but I don't know if the others or the whole team got that pricepoint. I would not be surprised though.

At least in past years, Rock has been pretty pricey. Even at 1/2 price it still might be more expensive than a lot of other clubs around.

OK. Thanks for nothing. There's a tryout advertised this weekend. Cost is an issue for some. But if your attitude is indicative of the team then hard pass

If this is their only team, they will not be playing too often. The Atlantic team played in 2 tournaments this year, both being small format national team tournaments, and the Hawks coach will never let the team become a full fledged club team, too many Hawks on the roster. That being said, it is a very good team, but its not that hard to be good when you are aggregating that level of talent. The trend seems to be that tournaments are going to be either biased towards club teams or national teams. For the 2023 level, just look at Naptown vs. Crabfeast, much more of a national team presence at Naptown. Frankly, if I were a club director, unless I have an extremely talented team at a certain age level (2023 Hawks or 91 Crush for example), I'm not sure that I would waste my time playing against the national teams at tournaments like Naptown. I know that it is good for development to play against better talent, but no kid wants to get blown out by a group of national programs all weekend. This is not meant to bash the national team model, my son has played for one, but it is not a great option if it is going to be your only team. As we all know, the most important aspect of lacrosse is quality practice time, other than a last minute pre-tournament practices, you are not getting that at the national level. Your coach could be the best D1 coach out there, but what are you really getting out of 1 or 2 practices.

The team is hand picked. Tryout is a money grab. Wake up. If they wanted your son he would be on the team already.

Educated guess...$400ish for initial team dues (gets you helmet and full gear) and first camp/tournament. Then $200 for each tournament after.

Last year it was around $350 for the "dues" which included the uniform but not the helmet, gloves, etc. then you had to pay for the mini camps which was $850 for the year. Tournaments are generally around $200 each. Exhibition games are cheaper.

Your eyes may be open , but you are having a hard time seeing the writing on the wall. Annual cost is irrelevant , Your son is not on the team for a reason, now HIT The Wall !! Better luck next year getting noticed.

I appreciate the advice but it's been 20+ years since I needed to hit the wall and get noticed. You won't notice me as I'll watch the games with my wife or other reasonable parents. We try and stay away from the crazies that coach their kids from the sidelines and yell at refs or grumble about the coaches or other players if things aren't perfect. When my son does well my heart will swell with pride but I won't brag on a forum or in person. If he struggles it will be up to him to hit the wall or ask his coach for help. Thanks to those who answered my question

One of the guys behind it is from NJ, he coached the '23 Tri-State Shore team, was fired and moved to Utah. Believe the team only played in two events. One was a b/s event in NJ run by Mad Dog, a waste of time.

The real goal is for True and Hawks to get to know top players not tied leading programs so they can invite the player to be guest players during the year.

The real goal is for True and Hawks to get to know top players not tied leading programs so they can invite the player to be guest players during the year.

The guys behind it have nothing ro do with NJ. One of them a National Director for True and the other guy is a local Md poacher/team hopper

This.

The "purpose" of the True Atlantic team is for the old ACS team to get a national organization behind it. True benefits by having another (it has three now) "National" 2023 team with a lot of talent. The tryout was likely to fill a few spots, so it was mostly a money grab, but hey, if parents are willing to pay...

I think that the NJ thing came into play because the old tri-state coach now works for true, and a few of his former tri-state kids play on True Atlantic

OK. Thanks for nothing. There's a tryout advertised this weekend. Cost is an issue for some. But if your attitude is indicative of the team then hard pass


Hard pass here too. Attitudes like speak volumes to the character of a team. No thanks.


Hard pass isnt needed. There is a reason neither of you are getting an invite

Is this a question, or are you suggesting that having a player on the U15 team makes 91 MD special, because it is not a very good team.

Curious to know what other teams have players that made the U15 team. Team 91 Md 2023 is mid-tier at best.

U15 is age not grade based hammerhead. And this player is not my son.

The vast majority of the kids are 2022 as it should be for a 15 year old team. Most 2023 players will look to join next year. That is why the question should be posted in the 2022 group. Will the Team91 player be under 15 next year?

You are dense. Age is age. If he meets the underage limit the grade means nothing. Just like rec lacrosse. Btw, all of the top clubs have holdbacks at 2023, especially Crabs, so, based on your implication, there should be other 2023 clubs with players that made U15 unless they did not measure up as u15.

Not sure why you keep equating a player making the U15 team with his club, congrats if you kid was good enough to make the team, but as stated above 91 MD is a mid tier team, so not sure why you are trying to make a connection

Really who is dense? Why are you posting this in the 2023 page and asking if other 2023 clubs had any players make it? The point is that most of the players listed are 2022's.

If asking about other clubs and maybe inferring why 91 and not players from Hawks, Crabs, ect.. you are now seeing that these players will be on the U15 team or attempting to next year. This is a great way to see once and for all who really has the most holdbacks. What are you going to say next year when these kids prove they are on age? time will tell. Most 2023's turn 15 after 9/1 but maybe you are that dense.

What will be your excuse for Jr when he does not make it next year dad? There are more holdbacks than not on the top Baltimore club teams and I don’t see any of them on the team. Why not?

This is a funny exchange because of facts. There are more Hawks players than any other team. 300% more than team 91 players. They are all 2022 players. Next season they will be 2023 players on the team. Well except for one former player/dad/coach/director his son will be too old but still a 2023. HMMM

Where are all the Baltimore club players? The only 2023 is from 91. No Crabs. Nearly that entire team should be in 10th grade. You make a sound like the 91 kid is the only holdback and therefore obvious he made it. But no other holdbacks did.

This is the reason they were held back. They couldn't compete against on age players. Pretty easy to see. And sorta sad too.

Time will tell but the U15 (age based) US team will put to rest many hold back accusations. Holdbacks are on these teams but not the best players on these teams. Wait and see next year when kids you call holdbacks prove they are one age. The team will feature Crabs and Hawks players.

Missing the point. Not even sure why I bother. Time will tell that the Hawks and Crabs players YOU THINK are holdback are NOT holdbacks. There are some, yes, but they are not the top players. The top players are ON age and will make the U15 team because they will still be U15 and 2023 like most normal rising 10th graders.

Michigan kid is a 2005 birth year - 9th grader. He will still qualify for U15 team next year if he stays good enough.

Fake news. Crabs players are almost all holdbacks, including all three of the starting attackmen, defense, and midfield. Hawks do have some holdbacks, but no where near as many as the Crabs.

Based on IL and NAL tournaments it appears Looney's is slightly better, FCA is slightly worse, 91 with Texas Kids and Holdbacks is better, Dogs seems to be holding steady and impressive, Hawks and True Atlantic are elite.

The True National Atlantic team is indeed elite. They play fast, skilled and very unselfish. Always looking for the one more pass and constant moving off ball. Was hoping to watch 91 bandits and True play. Would be pulling for True. Definitely one of the best teams in the country. Some really good 2023 teams out there.

Crabs are still the top team in Baltimore and on any given weekend the top team. True is True but they have players from these teams so hard to compare.

Crabs are still the top team in Baltimore and on any given weekend the top team. True is True but they have players from these teams so hard to compare.


All star teams shouldn't really count in any kind of rankings, unless you're ranking just the All Star teams.

I am pretty sure Hawks knocked Crabs from the number one spot last year; Hawks is clearly the best team in Baltimore. Thanks for playing.

The HOCO results say otherwise. Since when are the Hawks a Baltimore team?

So I guess Crabs is a DC team or Texas team when they have players from other States play? Hawks are in HOCO so yes they choose to play in Bmore. Sorry but the sun has set on the Crustacean Empire.

Hawks are yesterday's news as they get older. Crabs are top team this year and will continue as they go thru high school years. Hawks will continue their spiral downward until they graduate, or what is left of them .

I could care less, really... I dislike both the Crabs and Hawks parents as they all act foolish on the sideline. That said, as long as the Hawks have the best goalie, pole, attackman, and import the FO to address that need, they are clearly the best team. Dogs have the best coaching which is why they hang around.
