M&D is scary good. Practice has started. Best coach in the 23s. Coach took out the garbage and brought in 2 elite new players. Not sure why teams would even try and compete. I guess someone has to be the looser. Enjoy the fall session.

LI winning will be a thing of the past. This is a new year and new team. Players not able to hang have been cut loose. Guess you will just have to see for yourself. Like I said. Scary Good.

Wait I thought M & D was going to be scary good. The outcome of mid Atlantic showed that all the top teams can win or lose by a point or two on any given weekend. Hero's, Top guns, Yellow Jackets, Sky Walkers, M and D show they are all top programs and will continue to be that way.

Its fall ball. Missing some players for other sports. Do not get so excited. It was only close because we allowed it to be that close. The beat downs are coming. I would not get to confident.

M&D coach stinks. He is in over his head. Best players around top to bottom and the team is dysfunctional. He really wanted that showcase trophy this weekend, but came up short. You keep being you coach of the year.

Clearly you are too busy judging instead of actually watching them play. They are scary good. Winning or losing by a point doesn’t take that away.

Funny how when the team loses one game at a showcase by 1 goal he gets bashed, but when his team went 4-0 and beat the same team last weekend by 4 goals, there was silence. The team is far from dysfunctional, and if you were on the team, you would know. Keep wishing you were from afar.

It should be a fun summer. M & D and Hero's were the 2 best teams this fall. TG, Grizzlies, and Skywalkers are not that far behind. Heros got better with some players leaving. They are played unselfishly and more as a team. I am looking forward to seeing M & D with their additions having more time playing together. They will be very good.

I think that the 23's across the board have a lot of great players. It is always fun watching the top teams play!
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2023 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 11/18/19 10:50 PM
I disagree, he is a very good coach. Did you see them play before he took over? Not that they were bad by any means, but they play much better with him.

Not sure how M&D is on a pedestal. They lost to YJ and TG last weekend. Not the best. Hero’s have also been good, but also had losses. The top teams are interchangeable and can beat each other any given day. Some real studs on all these teams!

I propose a top tier, and no #1 (just because you win one week does not mean you’re the best!)
* in no particular order

Grizzlies
Monsters
YJ
TG
M&D
Hero’s

I think what you should take from any of these games is watching the teams as individual players which is what college recruiters will do. The top teams all have 3-4 great players on these teams. When it comes down to who wins it mostly comes down to how deep and good are the rest of the players on the teams. Watching the M and D vs Sky walkers 2023 games you could see it. I would put M and D 's top 4-6 against Sky walkers top 4-6 any day. When it comes to the rest of the team M and D has more depth. If your kid is one of the 4-6 or lets say top 10 on any of these teams than they are most likely going to be high level recruits.

these showcases are mostly for attackers and middies. don't see much happening with defenders unless they do camps?

Not true. Both have tryouts, M&D is listed on their site and SW is private.

Skywalkers will have private clinics in July to promise the world to other clubs players. Hope it works out for all of them. Club jumping never works.

Club jumping can work for some, especially if jumping to a team/organization that has little to no drama. It worked out well for our daughter when she left her team in 9th grade.

Now that fall has wrapped... im wondering where the scary good brat downs from M&D are.
Or can we just say thetes lots of good teams now
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2023 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 11/25/19 06:43 PM
SW 21 made changes (subtracted and added players) and M&D 21 added players going into 10th grade club season.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2023 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 11/25/19 08:21 PM
To keep this thread back on topic to 2023's, I suspect M&D 23 may be adding players going into the 10th grade club season too after 4 losses in the last two weekends (YJ, Top Guns, Capital, Skywalkers). Seems to be a lot of parity out there among the top teams in 2023...
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2023 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 11/25/19 10:13 PM
How does a team like M&D lose? I thought they were the best!
Also who wants more players on a team at this point? Too many teams have too many players! We have so much extra baggage on our team that I can’t wait for a change! These girls do not get better by sharing plays In the game. They get better by playing hard! So many teams are such a money grab I’m hoping by gr 10 that teams would trim up a bit.
I can’t see SW and the like taking away players but I can see them adding($$$). Beware!
I’d love a small pocket team almost like an all star league. Club is so over saturated.
And if you have to ask if Clinton s at this point are holding tryouts you just dont understand!
There is always room for the right player. It’s your duty to get your daughter there.

But I thought someone said that they stole 2 top players from another club and they are scary good now? Adding players to a team does not always help. It just ruins chemistry. Especially if you have a coach that does not know how to develop talent. Its easy to throw athletic players on the field, but you still need to be able to teach them. Obviously, their coach lacks this ability. Plus...watch them play. That is a super selfish team. That comes from the coach too. I guess trying to win all the showcase events is an ego stroking tell.

Watch SW and YJ at older levels not play kids at all at the end of a tourney. And yes I’m talking showcases too.

The Coach was a excellent youth/middle school age coach. Over his head at the high school level. The game gets faster and more intricate in the schemes and in game adjustments.

Well...that sounds amazing. Not getting to play in showcase events because you are going for the win and not getting the win. .500 play and riding the bench must be worth the cost, to be a part of the "Team" I guess. Sound like a good experience. Watch some of the other top teams. All players play and work as a team. Some even got better by losing some of their drama. Must be nice to be da best.

High school coach with a 4th grade team concept. Makes sense.

They run ISO all the time have for years now. What they picked up in the off season were more ISO players. ISO Players that are not quite as good as the one’s they had already. What they are missing now are middies that can play defense. Defensive Middies a noble concept that every great team has and appreciate.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2023 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 11/30/19 11:24 PM
I doubt many will respond to this but let’s try anyway.

Name a club and age group team that has a coach that is really good. And list reasons to support.

I bet for every coach that is named 4-5 will say something bad.

It was fall ball. 23 Black never had a full roster all fall, with top players missing due to fall sports playoffs. Rest up. See you in June.

Keep telling yourself this, and maybe you will believe it. Other teams had the same issues with girls missing due to fall sports, too.

Never saw M&D without at least 8-9 girls on the bench so I’m calling bs....
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2023 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 12/02/19 09:08 PM
I call BS. We played M and D multiple times this fall and all their top players were there.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2023 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 12/03/19 01:22 PM
Yes M&D did lose those games; 1 goal games to capital and TG. Smoked TG the weekend before by 4/5. TG also lost to hero’s Green by 4/5. We played YJ and whatever changes went on there they got a lot better. We will see what happens next time, but M&D not ready to give up the crown just yet.
YJ clearly the best up North right now with monster and TG closely behind.
M&D still the best in the country.

Monsters and TG have beaten MD more than once. That YJ 2 goal win must have been a convincing win to be clearly the best team up North.

What crown does M&D have? The were only 2 championship format tournaments last summer and they didn't win either. Hero's champs of Lax for the Cure and TG champs of the Mid Atlantic. Don't you have to win a tournament to hold the crown?

Take a look at the 2021 class ( the current class being recruited ) and let me know how these two teams have shortchanged their players. It just so happens they are the most highly recruited clubs in club lacrosse for their age group.

My daughters team YJ has equal playing time. Sure during championship format and 20 minute games we should not be sitting there breaking our coaches cookies over minutes. Carol gets girls recruited. No one on Long Island even comes close. Go back and check the commitments last September.

My daughter plays for 2021 Blue YJ team ,they played everyone equally for all show cases as well. No need to beat up other clubs. I agree with the above statement SW, &YJ have been the top teams recruited so obviously they are doing something right

Heard there are quite a few 21 M&D girls still not recruited. Interesting..... all that money and bragging over the years didn't serve those girls well at all.

Just because a player is not committed does not mean they were not recruited. College is for education first, pointless to commit if a school is not the right fit just because you get an offer. Sadly with Covid, these 21's may not get another chance to get in front of coaches.

[quote=Anonymous]Did anyone see the emails sent out by MnD leadership about summer lacrosse and the Black Lives Matter/George Floyd protests?

M&D Coaches and Families,

We have moved some practices in Howard County this week as recreation and parks open their fields on Monday. The Covid19 regulations that we had been using in Carroll County do apply for facilities in Howard County. The guidelines in each county are nearly identical. The only exception is that all players and coaches must wear a mask to and from the car and the field. You do not have to wear a mask at practice itself. Here are some of the other major things that we need to continue to follow:
1. Approximately 10 players on one half of a field.
2. No contact drills in practice.
3. Social distance as much as possible
4. No parents congregating at practice, parents are supposed to drop off and stay in the parking lot.
5. Temperature must be taken within 2 hours of practice, If a player has 100 degree temperature or above they are not to attend practice.
6. If a player is having any illness symptoms including but no limited to a cough, headache, chills, nausea, upset stomach, lethargy do not come to practice.
7. Sign the health waiver before each practice.

I know there is a lot of different information out there as far as guidelines etc. With all of the mass gatherings and protests, it has also triggered many questions about these policies and their legitimacy. As a club, we do have 330 families, thus a wide variety of opinions. I ask that everyone just please be respectful of everyone in the club and their opinions. If you do not feel comfortable sending your child out to participate, then feel free to keep her home with no penalty. If you are sending your daughter out there, please make sure to follow all of the guidelines.
I am not sure how strict rec and parks will be with the rules considering the public restrictions to prevent the spread of Covid19 are not being followed throughout the country on a nightly basis. The widely publicized protests and mass gatherings do violate every protocol of what our medical professionals have been telling us. It does make it very difficult for us as a club to tell you that you need to follow the rules when we see thousands of people violating the rules every evening. Just because certain people are allowed to violate the rules set out by our politicians, does not mean that we are allowed to do the same. I know it is 100% hypocritical, but the special rules being made for protestors do not apply to youth sports. From a science standpoint I know it makes zero sense, but we need to really just focus on what we can control as a club. We really cannot get into the political debate, or make a political stand. We need to concentrate on getting the kids out on the fields safely. So we do need to follow the rules strictly. The last thing we want to do is break the rules and then lose our permits. Fields are nearly impossible to find right now with many facilities in the Baltimore area still being closed. So my main concerns are that we just follow the rules so we can keep all of our players safe according to the medical recommendations and to keep our the practice permits. Any political stands on the hypocrisy of mass gatherings for protests as opposed to youth sports, please take up with your politicians, not on the lacrosse fields or parking lots. Thanks for everyone's cooperation and understanding in advance.

Sincerely,
Chris Robinson

So I’m not a huge fan of Robinson as a person/coach/director or M & D as an organization, however I feel the terminology is on point. Obviously I’m not an ambassador of the subject/sport but give the dude a break.

US lacrosse has released their guidelines for return to play. Go to their website for information on how this lax season will/may proceed.

Yeah...that email went over like a fart in church with the black families in the M&D program. One fired back an email and then Robinson had the nerve to even further his point of "I don't care about your opinions, keep them to yourself". Will post that one shortly as well. Pretty tone-deaf considering the climate.

This is such a great point. In my daughter's club there are several '21s that have not committed but have had offers from D1 programs. They have made the decision that those schools were not fits for them either financially or academically. The program is not to blame that they aren't committed. The program did its job in getting them in front of coaches. Each player (and family) makes the best decision for themselves.

This does not reflect well on him. Keep it simple and stick to explaining what the rules are, and that everyone in the club should follow them. He's asking the club's families to keep their wide variety of opinions respectful (maybe even implying keep it to themselves??), yet expressing his own opinions which are irrelevant to the basic information needed by families about practices.

This email is disgraceful especially in light of what is going on across the country. Lax is indicative of the what the protesters are trying to change. I recommend that Chris send out an apology and keep his M&D communications on LAX, or he will loose his best players.

It's not only an issue of losing his best players, but there is a host of other possible ramifications including, but not limited to, not being allowed to play in certain tournaments. People have lost jobs and been rebuked over the interpretation of one word. He put out an entire statement thats fairly straightforward without a lot of gray areas.

Why is an apology necessary? Chris stated the double standard that the government wants you to abide by. Protesting is very important and lax is not however does the virus know this? Will it only infect people that are out for non essential reasons?

Wake up. This covid-19 was a hoax. Get the facts. Protesting is important. Thugs looting and destroying property is a disgrace. And to many ..... lax is important.

Take a look at the 2021 class ( the current class being recruited ) and let me know how these two teams have shortchanged their players. It just so happens they are the most highly recruited clubs in club lacrosse for their age group.


My daughter is on 21 M&D team. They absolutely played everyone equal time in showcases. It is what's best for all the girls. Winning these games doesn't matter at all.

Heard there are quite a few 21 M&D girls still not recruited. Interesting..... all that money and bragging over the years didn't serve those girls well at all.


Every girl on M&D had options. Some so far have chosen not to take them.

Most people don't want to waste time reading their lacrosse club director's personal opinions, whether they agree or not. Comes across as arrogant, childish and unprofessional.

Just because certain people are allowed to violate the rules set out by our politicians, does not mean that we are allowed to do the same. I know it is 100% hypocritical, but the special rules being made for protestors do not apply to youth sports. From a science standpoint I know it makes zero sense, but we need to really just focus on what we can control as a club. We really cannot get into the political debate, or make a political stand. We need to concentrate on getting the kids out on the fields safely. So we do need to follow the rules strictly. The last thing we want to do is break the rules and then lose our permits. Fields are nearly impossible to find right now with many facilities in the Baltimore area still being closed. So my main concerns are that we just follow the rules so we can keep all of our players safe according to the medical recommendations and to keep our the practice permits. Any political stands on the hypocrisy of mass gatherings for protests as opposed to youth sports, please take up with your politicians, not on the lacrosse fields or parking lots. Thanks for everyone's cooperation and understanding in advance.

Sincerely,
Chris Robinson


This does not reflect well on him. Keep it simple and stick to explaining what the rules are, and that everyone in the club should follow them. He's asking the club's families to keep their wide variety of opinions respectful (maybe even implying keep it to themselves??), yet expressing his own opinions which are irrelevant to the basic information needed by families about practices.



This email is disgraceful especially in light of what is going on across the country. Lax is indicative of the what the protesters are trying to change. I recommend that Chris send out an apology and keep his M&D communications on LAX, or he will loose his best players.


Why is an apology necessary? Chris stated the double standard that the government wants you to abide by. Protesting is very important and lax is not however does the virus know this? Will it only infect people that are out for non essential reasons?


Most people don't want to waste time reading their lacrosse club director's personal opinions, whether they agree or not. Comes across as arrogant, childish and unprofessional.

Speak for yourself Karen.

M&D Coaches and Families,

We have moved some practices in Howard County this week as recreation and parks open their fields on Monday. The Covid19 regulations that we had been using in Carroll County do apply for facilities in Howard County. The guidelines in each county are nearly identical. The only exception is that all players and coaches must wear a mask to and from the car and the field. You do not have to wear a mask at practice itself. Here are some of the other major things that we need to continue to follow:
1. Approximately 10 players on one half of a field.
2. No contact drills in practice.
3. Social distance as much as possible
4. No parents congregating at practice, parents are supposed to drop off and stay in the parking lot.
5. Temperature must be taken within 2 hours of practice, If a player has 100 degree temperature or above they are not to attend practice.
6. If a player is having any illness symptoms including but no limited to a cough, headache, chills, nausea, upset stomach, lethargy do not come to practice.
7. Sign the health waiver before each practice.

I know there is a lot of different information out there as far as guidelines etc. With all of the mass gatherings and protests, it has also triggered many questions about these policies and their legitimacy. As a club, we do have 330 families, thus a wide variety of opinions. I ask that everyone just please be respectful of everyone in the club and their opinions. If you do not feel comfortable sending your child out to participate, then feel free to keep her home with no penalty. If you are sending your daughter out there, please make sure to follow all of the guidelines.
I am not sure how strict rec and parks will be with the rules considering the public restrictions to prevent the spread of Covid19 are not being followed throughout the country on a nightly basis. The widely publicized protests and mass gatherings do violate every protocol of what our medical professionals have been telling us. It does make it very difficult for us as a club to tell you that you need to follow the rules when we see thousands of people violating the rules every evening.

I agree. I'm a minority or brown person or whatever the latest woke speech is. I'm also a major Trump supporter. And I agree with Chris Robinson 1000%, but I think it is not appropriate for a director to express his opinion to the entire club. Just stick to explaining the rules and keep the email simple.

That M&D email about the protests was gross and should be put in to the dustbin. Here's what that email should've said - "we're following CDC guidelines end of story". It doesn't matter what anyone else is doing

But the poster who keeps putting it up on these this board should just stop. You're just trying to stir trouble

I wonder if he is setting things up for cancelling his MidAtlantic tournament this summer. I haven’t seen where it’s been rescheduled yet. There won’t be any college coaches able to attend in July anyway. I see where other tournaments have moved their dates and venues to states where team sports will be allowed. Crickets about his tournament so far.

And his email was ridiculous and risk taking. Stick to the basic guidelines you are implementing at practices. No one cares about your opinion. No wonder parents were upset.

Hardly disgraceful. His email is expresses everyone should respect others opinions and do not moan to him about having to follow the covid guidelines while others do not. Pretty simple , but as always, the America Saviors woke crowd cant even accept or take anything that doesnt pander to your thoughts and opinion.

"Lax is indicative of what the protesters are trying to change" ????? I agree, Lets change ! Chris should immediately move his tournament to East Baltimore without any police presence. All Games after 10:00 pm . Lets make a statement .

From my take he is just saying that even though people are out there protesting without penalty, he has to be extra careful to not break rules so their field permits do not get yanked.

Agree, not disgraceful. This forum is though. Get a grip. Sorry his words were harsh for some. Grow some thicker skin. Or let CR forward all his calls/emails/texts from parents to you, and you deal with them. Bet your email to the club would be the same. And your statement lost all credibility with your last sentence.

While we are beating up Robinson Sprts, I caught a glimpse of their 23 black team the last couple of tournaments to see what all the hype is about. They’re stacked with talent for sure, but their coach Peek is a disaster. Over managing from the sides and throwing his hat down non stop, screaming every play and yelling at refs and girls, we even heard him curse out one of his players. It’s clear he doesn’t trust them to play. I forgot I was watching high school Lacrosse for a little bit, felt like tyker. Wow-parents keep kids playing for a total jack Meanylike this for the sport and recruitability? I thought Robinson Sprts places great coaches. Times running out for that team...

Elite and Skywalkers are the dark horses in MD at this age. They play good team ball and are both well coached. Fun to watch...

I’ve seen him in action and he does not maintain the integrity of the game, the end. His team plays “iso” ball! There is no I in “eatme”!

Good to see lax back and some really competitive games the last few weeks. Too bad the NY teams aren’t able to play and add some great competition regardless of your thoughts about COVID-19. Skywalkers and Elite looked good the last two tournaments, but Monsters and Top Gun lead the way in the NE.

Have heard ‘23 black coach peek yanked his own younger kid from M&D and moved her to Skywalkers. Very telling.

Peek is a disaster and time is running out for his team? Screaming every play and cursing at his own players? You sound bitter. Parents pull their daughters from top clubs to go play for him. Your family must have been cut to make room for the Heros girls, top players from their team coming to play for the coach you bash. I am very sorry for you, but don’t blame the coach, the team, or the club. Good luck to 23 Black

Hero’s girls left hero’s for lesser coaches? They’ve got a few of the best. M&D wins more but lost a handful games recently not one, and for obvious reasons already said, get over it. That’s not new info. Anyone who plays them sees it.

MND teams tend to level off come high school. If you look at the performance of the MD black teams from the 24s on up they’re not as dominant as they are in middle school. This is not unique to the 23’s. Skywalkers seems to pick up good players as the years go along and they get equal with M and D in 8thgrade and up. It’s just the nature of the beast

But again I don’t see the need to be calling people out by name on an anonymous lacrosse forum

Ok.... well then put your name on your too. Put your name in your comment. You’re an adult - what’s the big deal??

I bet you won’t

You won’t admit it but I bet we agree on three things. 1 with amount of talent on your team you achieve mediocre results. 2nd is that the coach micromanages the offense with some silly plays. Here’s a idea MOTION. 3rd the coach acts like a complete stunad on the side line. Jumping around screaming nonsense while throwing his hat.

SW 2023 team goes undefeated this summer.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2023 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 08/09/20 11:52 AM
SkyWalkers on the move. Well coached and disciplined. Should be ranked #1. Lots of unselfish play and constant motion on offense to distract defenses. M&D has plenty of talent, but struggle only running isolation to score. That worked in Middle School, not at this age. Heros lost players and coach rants from sidelines. Girls walking off sidelines in tears is never a sign of steadfast coaching. Offense is one dimensional and ball movement lacks with only few players getting touches.
Legacy is a dark horse to watch. Plenty of talent and have a good defensive scheme that others fail to understand.

God you people are hilarious. In one breath- heroes is the best! How can anyone leave hero’s, they have the best coaching! That breath barely exhaled- offense one dimensional, poor coaching. Good grief.

Read the post. That is an objective view of top teams that have been playing. Others post nonsense and call parents out. Look at the teams that have been playing THIS summer. Not previous records or accomplishments from years past or clubs older teams. That is the past.

SkyWalkers have dominated play this summer. Then M&D and Legacy, followed by Heros. Top Guns and Yellow Jackets will be in the conversation at some point, but have not played, so should not be commented about. Stop being a parent. Watch the games and assess the teams.

SkyWalkers are well balanced in all areas. Playing as a team and unselfishly. Heros went from a top contender to losing multiple games. The loss of one or two players should not make a team, if they do, then your team is one dimensional and the coaching has not adjusted. M&D have lost games this summer. The high impact attack players that dominated in isolation plays have been figured out as girls have become older. Legacy operates a good defense which makes them a contender and utilizes ball movement and fast cuts to score.

Watch games, stop being a parent. Be objective.

That’s not a nice thing to say. Elite has a great director and solid teams/players. Those uniform colors are also “on fleek.”

I’m a Skywalker parent and don’t appreciate one of our own “throwing shade.” There are a lot of great teams out there and great lacrosse being played. We’re very fortunate that our daughters can compete. Good luck with the next year to all and their recruiting journey.

Glad SkyWalkers rise to the occasion and keep it classy. That’s how parents should be. Not whining about this and that, complaining about calls, or bragging about how older teams did and didn’t do. Evaluate your daughter’s team and live in the moment, not what happened last fall or last year.

Bitter parents won’t realize what outside coaches see; unselfish ball movement and while one girl may stand out, it takes an entire team to win. If you read the initial post, it’s factual, not emotional. Someone was upset about the coaching comment, well, it starts at the top and that is the coach. A coach can have all the talent, but won’t win if they play as individuals.

Competition in the 23s is extremely high. The team to beat is SkyWalkers. The key word in that last sentence, TEAM.

Elite is a well rounded team and are extremely well coached.

The recruiting journey will be challenging for all the girls in every club. Best of luck

I have seen the 2023 Elite team play some good lacrosse. I don't know about them having any other good teams though. I believe the rest of their teams are C level at best.

You ever heard of “Google”? I specifically saw their 2019’s that were very solid and so are their 23’s. No need to puff out your chest that their team is inferior.

MD United 23 East had a decent outing this weekend as well. Kudos to them. The game to watch this past weekend was Legacy/Jesters. Very competitive.

Yes, therr are plenty of good 2023 teams, and I’ve seen almost all of them play. I’d say Elite Orange ranks way up there and it would be interesting to see how they would do head to head v. Skywalkers and M&D. Elite may not be a top club, but that particular team is.

I agree with the top rankings watching tis group for many years. funny how Top guns used to go around telling everyone they were the best in age group, TG coach stinks. thats why they dont develop and get on the underarmour team. look at their lax poor play this weekend 1-2. they may not even be third on long isnad.

With the transfer of some of Hero’s top players the last couple of years to M&D, heros hasn’t been able to regroup, so they do not have the edge. Monster over TG.

I guess you have not been watching games, while M & D added players so did Heros. Heros has been playing great this fall. I dont think they've lost. There are a lot of good teams in the area, if you include SW Blue and Elite in the 23 year. I did see YJ play on Saturday and they looked good as well. I hope that YJ and Heros play next summer, so their smack talk will end, although I enjoy reading. Have a great Holiday Season and I hope everyone stays healthy!

Honestly speaking, it should probably be a slight tie between Heros and MND. probably slight advantage to Heros. Have no idea about Skywalkers since they dodged MND and Heros all fall.

Remember that Covid is massively helping MD and LI players from a recruiting perspective. With fewer opportunities to see players, coaches are relying on reputation more than even. That superstar girl from the 50th ranked team from Texas who would normally get seen at all these recruiting events is the type of girl who loses. I expect the total scholarship numbers for MD players in this recruiting season to be the most ever.

Way uglier....it's sad when you realize how many "friends" (adults) aren't happy for your daughter when they get recruited. The girls are happy for one another, but can't say the same for the parents:(
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2023 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region - 12/04/20 10:25 PM
Unfortunately, the happiness for others only tends to come after one commits themselves. For my high school team the general rule of thumb is to not tell your teammates who has contacted you, etc. There is a lot of jealousy and frustration that comes if your teammate gets an email/text/call from the team(s) you wanted, especially if you think you are better than said teammate.

We try to remind them that the process is different for every player and includes more than lacrosse, but it's hard to not talk about it to your best friend. Sometimes it can get ugly.

Trust me there are many highly skilled Maryland players being left out of recruiting so far also. It’s only been beneficial for the girls from well known clubs who have well connected recruiting directors. It’s all about the club/college coach relationships this year. If your club doesn’t have them, it’s equal to being that superstar player from Texas - even if you are from MD or LI.

That is not true at all-there are plenty of girls that were recruited because of THEIR relationship w/ the college coach(s)-had nothing to do w/ who they play for or who their coach is. It’s not the coaches responsibility, the player needs to make themselves known to the collage coaches. The class of 2022 has had plenty of time (pre-COVID) to be in front of colleges-plenty of time!

$500 to be seen by schools that will be at summer tournaments.

Does your daughter need to attend these winter camps/clinics if she plays on a top 10-20 Maryland team with lots of good film? Is this tournament for girls like her or the girls from other places that need to be seen more?


I know playing live is always best but at $500 a pop plus travel in the height of Covid, I dont know if its worth it.

Depending on if your daughter wants to attend any of the schools that will be there. And any of the D1 schools that were listed won't be there now...
