U15 Championship Disney - 07/10/12 08:30 AM

Schedule is out at USlacrosse.org

Not talented enough especially after losses to
Jesters who were missing 7 players and a loss
To Express, besides the fact they're the only
LI program that didn't qualify and received an at
Large which was not deserved!

You are clearly well-educated. How old were you when you dropped out of middle school?

Don't discount the California teams - they are big, very strong, fast and extremely well conditioned. The heat will not be a problem for them, they are built for it. Anybody who takes them lightly will be going home early.

They are playing up in the varsity bracket. Give them credit, many of them have not played varsity for their HS yet and many probably won't next Spring either. If they were playing in the JV bracket and lost to Syosset, that would be news. Not the case though.

The Express team going to this tournament is not 2015 Orange - its a subset of the Express 2nd team. Basically any kid that was available since this was a late add. They have some good players going but will not be anywhere close to the same class as Express Orange or the other teams mentioned above. Express Orange will be healthy and ready to go in Florida to bring home the hardware.

The sad thing is you are referring to 2015 teams, who should NOT be considered U15. The US Lacrosse U15 tournament is a complete joke. In order to be competitive, you have to send your rising sophomore team because of the bogus age rule US Lacrosse has for this one tournament.

Most LI 2015 teams are 75%+ 1997 birth year, a kid born 12/31/96 would not have been eligible based on last years rules but he would still be an age appropriate 2015 - this year with the date change to 8/31/96 I would guess 99.9% of long Island 2015 players are eligible - this is a true 2015 age appropriate tournament.

That rule seems ridiculous anyway just because some kid is exceptional at age 15 and played at the high school level or because some kid lives in a district that has a poor high school team so he was brought up should not prevent him from playing at his age in these tournaments.

As long as it's the same rules for everyone, who cares? I personally like it better the way it is than if they defined it to be younger.

Re: U15 Championship Disney - 07/18/12 01:07 AM

It is ridiculous because these are long standing rules that US Lacrosse has waived for this tournament just to get more entries.

A kid who plays for his HS team has a huge advantage over a kid who just finished 8th grade (e.g. exposure to HS coaching, practice, games, competition, etc.) That's why the rule was established in the 1st place.

When you're in HS, you should be focused on playing HS teams and getting recruiting looks - not flying to FL to win a mythical U15 championship against other Rising Sophomores.

I'm huge fan of trying to keep age requirements in place for lax tourns. However, as they get a little older and they play in the HS Divisions, the age issue only gets worse. In the more intense tournaments you have Prep School kids that are PG's. 19 yr olds playing against kids who may have just turned 16. Talk about men playing boys!!! On the flip side, your son will get better playing tougher bigger and stronger competition. Maybe tough for some teams that are used to winning all the time. Also, tough on kids who at their age are superstars. It can be humbling.

That is why kids who have played HS ball should be playing against HS kids in HS tournaments - not against 8th graders in U15 events. My son is entering HS now and I wouldn't want his team wasting time beating up on 8th graders. I want his team to be playing in recruiting events in front of college coaches.

The teams that send their 2015 teams to that Florida tournament are a joke.

why stop there? I think kids over 5' 11" should not be allowed, and maybe have speed and agility testing and kids that are just too fast should also not be allowed, I would definitely not allow kids that shoot too hard, and no kid that goes to Chaminade would be allowed because if they went to a public school they would be on varsity. We need to balance the playing field and make this for players of the lowest common denominators - let's call it the Harrison Bergeron tournament of champions......or, another ides might be to allow any kid that was born after 9/1/1996 - just a thought.

If that is the case then they should change the age requirement. They just adjusted it to allow some 2014's to go!

So the tournament should be for kids that are U15 but either not good enough to play on there HS team or that go to a High School that is good enough that they don't need to bring up 9th and 10th graders? and by high school ball does that include JV? because it would not be much of a U15 tournament if you did not include kids that played any high school, I think that would have to be a U14 or even U13.

Notice how even though the age limit was relaxed, the 2015 Crabs still don't go.

You are a complete tool, why does it bother people so much that they try to put together a true U15 national championship, every college coach I have spoken with are barely looking at kids in this age group so why not have a true national championship tournament. Sounds like a lot of you guys are jealous of these kids, and no I do not have a kid attending

All of the best U15 clubs are filled with kids who are Rising Freshman. They don't have Rising Sophomores playing U15 because those kids want to play HS competition, not MS kids. Sorry to break it to you, but most areas of the country don't allow MS kids to play for JV teams because of injury concerns. Apparently Long Island likes to do that, which is weird.

It is nowhere near a true U15 national tournament. If there was one, they wouldn't have it in Florida, making it cost prohibitive for many families. Having one in the Mid-Atlantic of in the Tri-State area would make their claim a lot more legitimate.

let it go already - we can all find faults in anything they try to do, every U15 team in the country had a chance to either be invited or go to a regional and earn a berth, I am sure the U19 internationals are not to your liking because they are in Europe and some kids play in college and some just finished HS. it is what it is....move on

Re: U15 Championship Disney - 07/23/12 04:18 PM

Here I sit in a LarryMiller with my daughter ready to play at the U-15 and let me put in my personal opinions of what I've seen on this thread.

1- To have this event in Disney is cost prohibitive but you must understand that for U.S. Lacrosse to grow the sport this is probably the correct venue because it will receive national attention while other sports like Baseball, Softball, Basketball and Field Hockey also hold major tournaments in the same venue at the same time.When the event was in it's infancy it was held in MD. and got no press.

2-as far as the Girls side of this event goes it provides a major opportunity for girls that are either rising Freshman, or rising sophomores to gain a lot of exposure for themselves to college coaches especially if there from the from non-traditional hot beds. Those parents complaining about there sons having to compete against high school kids confuse me, , a high school freshman should be 14 turning 15 this year so why are you complaining, they are the reason the U-15 group was chosen , It is very late in the season and most tourneys are over and now is the time that college coaches start looking at the younger years to see who is good. If your club is sending a middle school team to this event you need to talk to your director because they don't know what there doing. You should look at Long Island as the example and not complain, but copy there format. Your freshman boys are being robbed of a prime opportunity.

3- As far the Yellow Jackets goes, they don't send down whole teams, but select girls from many teams, so please stop misrepresenting the facts. I am sure the A team will be very strong , but the B team might be suspect. and none of them won anything or real importance this year so maybe we should relax and just enjoy the games.

Re: U15 Championship Disney - 07/23/12 04:53 PM

The response above misses the mark on many points. The amount of national "pub" this tournament receives is nominal at best. ESPN doesn't talk about, let alone show, any of the tournament games. All you get is a 10 second montage of the winner as they have a promo that shows the various winners at this ESPN "event" from the various sports.

US Lacrosse moved the tournament down to Florida for one reason only - to make more money. Although it helps grow the game somewhat to make it easier/cheaper for SE teams to attend, it wasn't done for any altruistic purposes. Putting the tournament in MD and/or the Tri-State area would serve the lax community the most. Those teams from non hotbed areas would still pay the same to travel, and you would capture a better collection of top teams. The reason why USL changes the U15 age policy for this tournament is the same reason why it was moved to FL - more money.

The fl$ 2015 team is going to the U-15 tournament this year, not the 2016 team. The fl$ 2015 team did not make the final 4 of their own tournament this past weekend.


first off I am not an fl$ parent or fan but I wanted to address this nonsense. there were four brackets and each bracket played a round robin poll, the winners of the four brackets played in the semi finals. fl$ lost in the first game to the eventual champions so they were basically eliminated on Friday night, they then won the rest of their games. it is very possible that they were the second best or even the best team in the tournament but never had a chance to win it once they lost the first game. If they swept the Pool Play people would have been saying that they set up an easy pool because it was their own tournament. fl$ is a very good team with a few great players and will do well in FLA until they face the Express, who is the best 2015 team on the island

I heard that were it not for some last minute heroics they could have easily went 2-3 on the weekend. This is not a great team like it used to be or the competition has caught up. They will be on a flight home by the time they would have met the Express.

Please note that we received a phone call indicated that the fields have been cleared at Disney due to a passing storm. Weather has been hot all day (temperatures in the 90s) with mixed sun/clouds.

Only two 3:00pm games remain to be played from pool play action. Will update with scores should the games be played.

From blogger report at the field : From our vantage point, the rain has lightened, but that doesn't mean much. Disney staff are monitoring radar and will give the all-clear when it's safe to play again.

Since most of the fl$ 2015 tried out for Express Orange and didn't make it and went back to fl$, you could conclude that fl$ is trying to beat Express with kids that Express didn't think were better than what they already had. We'll see if the talent evaluation by Express was right or not. Needless to say the Express will be happy to take the tryout fees from the fl$ parents again in October for spots on the Express Blue (or White).

If fl$ had tryouts in early September a lot of Express (and others) would have gone to fl$ tryouts - this was a big crossover year with kids finally in High School and feeling pressure or no longer feeling pressure to play on certain teams - and you had many many kids going to multiple tryouts and some changing teams and many more not changing teams. I think kids just wanted to see where they stood. fl$ is a great organization and the 2015 team has plenty of kids that could make any team that they tried out for.

I guarantee that if the fl$ tryouts were before Express that they would draw no more than 1 or 2 bubble kids from the Express Orange for the tryout. Can't say the same for fl$.

Will you people please take your internal Yellow Jacket fighting to your own thread. It's pretty classless to air your dirty laundry on a thread dedicated to A tournament where other Long Island teams are attending and also doing well.

Review from Day One, US Lacrosse Link

Seven teams survived the first day of the US Lacrosse Girls' U15 National Championship, powered by Lacrosse Unlimited, unbeaten at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, setting the stage for the start of the 25-team single-elimination bracket tomorrow.

Two-time defending national champion Yellow Jackets Team 1 (N.Y.) earned the top seed, cruising past Be More Lax (Md.), Triple Threat National (Calif.) and Lonestar (Texas). The Long Island Liberty (N.Y.), Yellow Jackets Team 2, Long Island Top Guns (N.Y.) and Top of the Bay (Md.) round out the top five seeds, each with a 3-0 record. Cardinal (Va.) and the StickBenders (Fla.) each posted 2-0-1 marks on the day.

Wrong. If Express got knocked out in the 2nd round of playoffs at tristate what makes anybody think they can go all the way in Florida just 2 or 3 weeks removed. Final 4 will be Dukes, NESLL, One of the Norcal teams and Express. Dukes over NESLL for Championship.

With a bunch of 3-0 teams from pool play and everyone "winning" in the knock-out rounds, anyone can get on a roll. The Sky Walkers win yesterday was the one and only true "upset" in the tournament. As for Yellow Jackets Team 2, they are up against it with the Liberty. Complete toss-up game.

They have an excellent F/O middie and some very solid players but not the 4 or 5 outstanding D1 type players they would need to get to the final 4. It ends for them in the final 8.

The Jesters and Express complete their second pool play matches undefeated while the fl$ drops their second match against a very tough DH Elite group from California. Remember that fl$ was a finalist in 2009 and 2010 and Champions in 2011 - pool play losses are not that frequent in this tournament for fl$ and we would look for them to rebound in the next match.

NESLL (MA) 7, Palm Beach Storm (FL) 5
Utah 7, LarryMiller 5

Summary

No Limit comes back from a 6-3 halftime deficit to get the one goal win over the Looney's and take a 2W-0L-1T record in pool play. No Limit scored the final four in their match including the game winner by Brendan Homire with about 20 seconds left.

The Outlaws dropped their second in pool play and finish the day at 0W-2L-1T. We expect a top eight seeding for the Ballers come later this evening.

Interesting quote from Paul Krome who is blogging about the tournament today including the Minnesota 6, DH Lax Elite 3 halftime score in their 2:00pm match : "Upset alert on field 19! Has DH Lax Elite read too many of its own press clippings following the 8-6 win over the defending champs earlier this morning?"

One of the things I came away with after watching the skywalker vs YJ 1 game is that both the pro jackets and anti jackets groups are blind.I had no dog in that fight but watched what seemed to be a more talented YJ team collapse .Were the refs calling a different game then the kids from the Maryland NY areas are accustomed to ,yea.Did the refs seem to call a much tighter game against the YJ team,yes. Did some of the calls seem to be unfair against YJ ,yes. On the other hand were the YJ players unable to adjust their style of aggressive play, yes.Did the YJ players make some of the dumbest unnecessary fouls, yes. In the end it seems the YJ players were unable to adjust their style to the fouls being called, many of which seemed based on reputation more then reality.Did it seem that this particular YJ team may have lost their chance at a national title because of a deserved reputation of overly aggressive play,who knows.

no question that LI plays a more physical style of play, but the refs in MD call as tight a game as any around the country.

Every Yellow Card was called by one ref. A ref that was had picked by US Lacrosse to make sure a message was sent because of the incident at lax for a cure. The calls were phantom at best! There was not one YC that would be called if that ref wasn't being purposely oversensitive! It is what it is. The squeeky wheel gets the grease. US Lacrosse reacted! So be it. What was plainly obvious though was the better team did not win the game. I am sure the SKY Walker contingent know this deep down! They are a good team but needed a lot of help to win that game and they got it! Let's move on!

Typical YJ denial.

Watch this video and tell me, do you enjoy having your daughter isolated with her team while all other teams exhibit sportsmanship and make new friends. All the parents should ask themselves that question. I have and the answer is clear.

dont be a bunch or cry babies... give me a break, you lost , finished not in the top 5 , your YJ left overs finished better than you, and so did li liberty and li topguns. you are the 3rd best team on LI. blame it on the coaching, after all that went on at lax for the cure, you should have known it was going to be a tight called game and you didnt adjust.

Are South Shore Ballers and No Limit Ballers the same? I thought No Limit was a Westchester/Yorktown team.

They are a good team but needed a lot of help to win that game and they got it! Let's move on!



Let's keep in mind that the YJ 2015 Blue LM cut 4 girls from the original 2015 team for tourney and replaced withe 2 14's and 2 16's, hand picked to strengthen team. SkyWalkers were down 2 ACL's ( one from lax for cure), a girl on vacation and one girl too old to qualify for U15. So, with only one sub, brought up 2 x 2017's who were little sisters of current rostered 2015's. Total of 3 subs. Extremely short bench, considering
the heat. The two hits after goals were scored were legit yellows as one girl was being monitored for a concussion by ESPN WWOS trainers and was not allowed to return.

Also, SW's were called for a Red card in the 1st half when a YJ spun into the defenders stick, bumping her head. One of our best players out. Played rest of game with the two 2017's as subs.

It's not about finishing above or not. It's about the journey getting there. Listen, your kid is the one who missed out when all the other teams were getting to know each other and no YJs were included because of the attitude surrounding them. Think the Yankees in the Bad News Bears. I know several YJ parents who were there, saw it and are not in denial. They are not happy to say the least. You are all welcome if you just drop the attitude. Again, you don't have to quote standings and placement lists cause it's not about that. Now...give us a hug! Go ahead it's ok...just let it go. Lol

Let's keep in mind that you have absolutely no idea what you are talking about. You should keep in mind that you look like a fool when you state things as fact when you have no idea.When you put things in writing that are completely incorrect anything else you state should then be considered nonsense.

Sky Walkers didn't need help beating your "girls" in New Jersey after your thug took one of them out, They didn't need help taking out team 1 , and they didn't need help dismantling team 2. Not only does the Sky Walker contingent know that they are the best team of this summer, So does Top Guns, and Liberty. the only contingent that doesn't know this is the crybaby contingent at Yellow Jackets. Your complaining because the refs wouldn't let your team get away with the overly aggressive tactics that your girls have used to ruin another player. I talked with the Sky Walker girl that your thug took out, and according to her it wasn't a 50/50 ground ball as you claim, she told me she took a clear from her goalie and your "girl" jumped on her back. You speak of the squeaky wheel but the only people that went to the ref's tent to complain were Yellow Jackets. If your cheating reputation has gotten so wide spread it's not because people complain to U.S. Lax, it's because of your clubs inability to play within the rules, and to have a shred of sportsmanship. The other posters are right, all other teams made friends and cheered each other on. I watched Cardinal as a whole cheering on Liberty against you because no team in girls lacrosse has any respect for you. The only thing you club has is it win/loss record, no one likes or respects you. Everyone hates your club, not because your the best, because clearly this year your not, but because your dirty and arrogant. here is something to think about as you crow about you daughter going off to a D-1 school because of Carol, She might/will be playing with girls from Top Guns, Liberty, Cardinal , MD, M&D, and Sky Walkers. all these girls will except each other , and they might even except your daughter, but always in the back of there minds, every time your kid gets called for a foul it's because she's a dirty Yellow Jacket

no question that LI plays a more physical style of play, but the refs in MD call as tight a game as any around the country.

Every Yellow Card was called by one ref. A ref that was had picked by US Lacrosse to make sure a message was sent because of the incident at lax for a cure. The calls were phantom at best! There was not one YC that would be called if that ref wasn't being purposely oversensitive! It is what it is. The squeeky wheel gets the grease. US Lacrosse reacted! So be it. What was plainly obvious though was the better team did not win the game. I am sure the SKY Walker contingent know this deep down! They are a good team but needed a lot of help to win that game and they got it! Let's move on!



Let's keep in mind that the YJ 2015 Blue LM cut 4 girls from the original 2015 team for tourney and replaced withe 2 14's and 2 16's, hand picked to strengthen team. SkyWalkers were down 2 ACL's ( one from lax for cure), a girl on vacation and one girl too old to qualify for U15. So, with only one sub, brought up 2 x 2017's who were little sisters of current rostered 2015's. Total of 3 subs. Extremely short bench, considering
the heat. The two hits after goals were scored were legit yellows as one girl was being monitored for a concussion by ESPN WWOS trainers and was not allowed to return.

Also, SW's were called for a Red card in the 1st half when a YJ spun into the defenders stick, bumping her head. One of our best players out. Played rest of game with the two 2017's as subs.



Let's keep in mind that you have absolutely no idea what you are talking about. You should keep in mind that you look like a fool when you state things as fact when you have no idea.When you put things in writing that are completely incorrect anything else you state should then be considered nonsense.


Kinda like what u just wrote? Just more words aimed at nothing. Try making a point like the previous posters. Then maybe there can be a discussion.

Ok. Fact: NO one was cut! The girls that didn't come had other things to do. Fact: The 2 YC's after the goals were not given until well after the play was viewed by the ref with no call. She reacted to the player on the feild. Fact: YJ player got a deserved YC for delaying the game by throwing the ball after a call by the ref but the Sky Walkers didn't after doing the same exact thing. Fact YJ girls got knocked illegally on their butts after plays a number of times with no call. There are a lot more facts but none of it matters. The game is over and there was a winner. Life isn't fair all the time! You can't win the war of words on a message board. Everyone will have their own take and it is usually a bias one on both sides. It would have been nice to see a game between 2 full stregnth teams to determine the winner. In the end I am sure the Skywalkers would have liked to have it that way too. They are a good team and I am sure didn't want to win that way.

s you crow about you daughter going off to a D-1 school because of Carol, She might/will be playing with girls from Top Guns, Liberty, Cardinal , MD, M&D, and Sky Walkers. all these girls will except each other , and they might even except your daughter, but always in the back of there minds, every time your kid gets called for a foul it's because she's a dirty Yellow Jacket


Sounds like you have raised your child to be as big a [lacrosse] as yourself.Definitely teach her to judge all people in a group as if they are the same and not get to know people for who they are individually, that will serve her well.

Ok. All good points and you'll agree those type of officiating issues happen all too often. Your point is well taken BUT to say you are better when 1-they just beat you and 2-they beat you other times this summer may be where people hit you with the YJ attitude stuff. I am sure you have seen teams get shafted by officials (on all levels and all sports) and if the player blames the officiating they are labled sore losers. I am not saying it's not a real reason for a loss it's just not cool to continually blame the refs especially when they have been favorable to your team for a long time. Good discussion!!

No kids cut from team and replaced with 2014 or 2016 , when you state things as fact that are divisive and are completely wrong then why even consider the other ignorant comments.I have no problem with your stating that the u15 sky walkers team should be considered best in the nation but if you are going to say that then YJ 2 should be considered 2 best, etc..

Yes let someone state that no matter what your YJ child will be considered a dirty Yellow Jacket.You strike me as the type of parent who will let people say and do anything to your child and just sit back and watch.

You will never remove them because Carol will never get rid of the bad element, and you and your daughter will always be seen the way you see this parent. Leave the Yellow Jackets, any other director is just as capable of helping your daughter, and if your a decent person the Top Guns , and Liberty parents will welcome you and your daughter. Carol has no magic wand to help your daughter, her commitment list is only that big because of the amount of players she fields. I promis you your daughter will thrive and reach there goal at either of the other 2 clubs

There has always been this debate that somehow a title is diminished if a specific top-level team does not show.

Here is the truth : you play who shows and the title is still the same. Any team that does not show loses the chance to comment. It is a National Championship - every major club knows the dates a year in advance. Show up, don't show up - the choice is yours ... but it is still called the U/15 National Championship.

It's called the U-15 Championship. That's why the crabs aren't there. They would have to send kids from their 2017 and 2016 teams. They know how that would turn out, so they don't go. Yeah I know, just few kids where held back, and just a few kids repeated 8th grade. Please.

My 2 cents.....u15 disney tournament went pretty much as expected. Express dominating fl$ played great. Ballers did well. Big dissapointment was the jesters. Expected alot more from them. looks like express orange is the real deal. Know alot of kids from all the long island teams. The jesters coaching was a disgrace. They brought kids in from other teams and sat kids that played with them sll season. Alot of people upset that played with that organization.

There has always been this debate that somehow a title is diminished if a specific top-level team does not show.

Here is the truth : you play who shows and the title is still the same. Any team that does not show loses the chance to comment. It is a National Championship - every major club knows the dates a year in advance. Show up, don't show up - the choice is yours ... but it is still called the U/15 National Championship.


A shame. Anybody want to comment why crabs and WC Starz don't go to this tournament?

You are absolutly correct the jesters are an embarrasment. They had great when coaching all year then they show ip with s clueless coach that runs the team entirely different. Dont try to fix what isnt broken. If their regular coach eas there they would have gone further. It is now a brokenorgaization. I dont think anyone will be back next year after what the coaches and director pulled this year. Anyone thinking about playing there next year just ask any parent that went to florida and their opinion will be unanimous. Stay away from the jesters .... I speak from experience

The jesters coaching was awful..way to go guys no one will be back next year. Lets take $1800 from 25the kids and we will only play the same 15 kids in 95 degree temps. Where was the regular coach the boys had all year. Lets borrow kids from other teams that never practiced together and play them while sitting kids that have been playing and winning togethee all season. The jesters organization is a total mess. I encourage any oneoone who is considering playing or trying one who is considering playing or trying out for them next year to reconsider or at least speak to anyone of the parents from this year on how they ruined a good team. The biggest waste of money on auseless coach and director. Where was lapenna. He knew the boys and like him or not he is a great coach. The circus clown coaches they brought to florida ... all i can say is stay away from the jesters organization.

It's called the U-15 Championship. That's why the crabs aren't there. They would have to send kids from their 2017 and 2016 teams. They know how that would turn out, so they don't go. Yeah I know, just few kids where held back, and just a few kids repeated 8th grade. Please.


I have nothing to do with the Crabs, but that obsession Long Island parents have with kids who repeat is ridiculous. Yes, the Crabs have a lot of MIAA kids, and some of those kids repeat a grade. It's not a lot of kids, nor is it something unique to Baltimore. The Crabs could easily field a team with just U15 age-eligible kids, so get over yourself.

If you can going to condemn the Crabs (or any team) who has kid who has repeated 8th, how about a tournament where you have to have a 2015 team to be competitive in a U15 tournament? U15 teams are supposed to be filled almost exclusively with Rising Freshman. Sending a team filled with Rising Sophomores to a U15 team is an absolute joke.

I've only heard great things about the Jesters organization. Losing 2 one goal games is not a disgrace from what I've learned from years of watching kids sports. Try and enjoy your kids. As always there are plenty of great teams at the U15 championship.
And Congratulations to the Express for winning and to the rest of the teams who played from the Island.

Just for the record Crabs and WC Starz both beat the "national champs" earlier this year. But to be balanced Express also beat the Crabs. Dukes and NESLL were just as disappointing as fl$ for not making it to Championship Sunday. fl$ will say they are ok with losing to champs but no doubt they went down to LarryMiller very confident they would beat Express and everybody else - disappointing no matter how you spin it to hand over the title to biggest rival.

To be honest, the biggest problem for fl$ in this year's tournament was drawing into DH Lax Elite and losing that pool play match. That resulted in a #10 seed, followed by a championship bracket draw filled with potential potholes.

I sent my son down there nd although I was unable to attend he had nothing but great things to say about the entire experience. He too hated losing in a one goal game in overtime. Sounds to me like a sore loser. Coach rich has always been great to my two sons and I completely disagree with your opinion, coach Jim coaches my younger son and he loves it so much he doesn't want to play with anyone else.

do you not see the irony in your own statement. Of course the kids from Baltimore are rising frosh because they are held back, but the same age. And how many of the Crabs play for FCA?

Ill agree rich is a great guy and im sure he meant well. You cant have the boys play with one coach and change to another coach that wants to changethe the lines and add different players hoping to win. Nothing personel but rich dropped the ball big time and lost because of his choice of coach and desperation trying to win. I too will not be back next year with my son.

I don't get the argument that all players should be rising freshman. In most states a 14 year old kid is in the 9th grade going into 10th.

I am a parent from one of the LI Teams. I know both of those coaches I would have my son play with them anytime. You should reach out to the coaches of the organization and get all the facts. I happened to be in the same hotel with the Jesters it looked to me like they the kids where enjoying themselves. As far as I can see they run a class act.

Is the tournamment call "U15" or is it called "Rising Freshman"? Clarify the rules. If it's "U15", have an age cut off date. If it's "Rising Freshman" then you can have any age as long as they are going into 9th grade. Right now it'called "U15" and most "U15's" are rising sophmores.

You are part of the problem. The fact that you assert that "the kids from Baltimore are ... held back" shows your ignorance. Kids are held back everywhere, not just in Baltimore. Furtthermore, we're talking about a handful of kids - it is not a prevalent practice in Baltimore. Get over yourself.

Nobody said it is a common practice. In fact, it is not. We're talking about a handful of kids. The fact that Long Island dads keep repeating this mantra whenever their teams lose shows a lot about them.

They do have an age cut off and u15 is much better then rising 9th grade, why reward the people who have held their kids back for an unfair advantage. Age based tournaments are the best way to go with states having different age cutlets for school.

Because Rising Sophomores should be attending recruiting events where college coaches want to see them matched up with kids in the same GRADE. That's why HS teams are GRADE based, not age based.

LOL. Enjoy having your Rising Sophomore team beat up on teams in Middle School.

Stop crying about it. It's age based. If your players make the cut off, send a team. If not be quiet. Sure Crabs and West Coast Starz beat express, because the kids are older. That's why you won't go to the tourney.
Look, this happens all the time. One of my kids is on a 2018 team. Played at Tri-state. West Coast starz and Looneys both sent a U-13 team to play in the 2018 AA bracket. Do you think we don't know what these teams do???

As a parent of a kid who is looking for a new program, we are seriously considering the Jesters as an option, I have met Rich Nessim a few times and always found him to be a straight up good guy. I don't know what happened down in Disney but it sounds like some parents are frustrated with the coaching, Can anyone intelligently answer the question about the Jesters as an organization? I would really like some solid feedback.......

Re: U15 Championship Disney - 07/30/12 09:55 PM

You are clearly missing the point here. Most of the people who are upset are not taking issue with losing, but due to the fact that there were new coaches who didn't have one practice prior to the biggest tournament of the year and added new players under the premise that they were needed because of the oppressive Florida heat. That would have been acceptable had the coaches not shortened the bench, usually at the expense of the original team members and over played the same kids time and time again. To me this sounds like a legit gripe especially when you factor in the obscene amount of money this tournament cost. There is no doubt the boys had a good time and will cherish the memories forever but it would have been that much better had the right thing been done by the coaches on the field. And by the way the poster who stated that man up was 75% for the tournament, not sure what games you were watching unless you were talking about the other teams conversion rate. We scored 2 man up goals the entire tournament. The special teams play was terrible and was directly attributable to the lack of practice which contributed to the sub-par showing. Rich is a GREAT guy but anyone who says he didn't drop the ball on this one is lying to themselves and everyone else that is following this thread.

Re: U15 Championship Disney - 07/30/12 09:59 PM

So a general statement/question. My son who is a September birthday, but it young for his grade will qualify as U15 as a rising sophomore. Why would I not have him play? May be the first time he would have an advantage because of all the discrepancies between grades and tournaments etc.

This year as a 12 year old he's play against U15 because he's on a 7th/8th grade team. The u15 rules at tristate basically allowed for existing 15 years olds to play and rising sophomores.

So now when my son is actually of the correct age, he shouldn't play because he will be a sophomore? Doesnt make sense to me.

Re: U15 Championship Disney - 07/31/12 12:18 AM

My son plays for the U15 team that seems to be generating a lot of bad press here. He saw steady minutes and really enjoyed his teammates so there is no sour grapes here or any reason to be anything but truthful. Objectively speaking here is the good,the bad & the ugly. First the good. Hard to argue with a trip to the U15 Nationals in sunny FL. Great experience. The team was legitimately and objectively picked based on tryout performance and not pre-determined like many other big name clubs. It didn't matter who you knew or thought you knew which is the way it is supposed to be. Rich is a gentleman whose intentions are good but he did NOT nor does he coach the U15 team and only did so for the Nationals. The cost of the program is "cheap"($1150) relatively speaking when compared to some of the other "big name" clubs while still being able to deliver just enough lax swag (bag, shooter etc..) to keep them competitive. Jesters are one of the bigger clubs on LI but still manages to employ a family type atmosphere, plus the kids really love the uniforms. The bad. Communication was poor to say the least. Practices when held were routinely canceled the day of. There were instances when practice was canceled within an hour of its intended start time which resulted in parents rushing to the field only to find out the hard way it was canceled late. Minimal practices with little teaching and rudimentary drills, not what you would expect for a U15 AA Nationals contender.
The ugly. Roster size of 25 sometimes 26 was way too many kids. As a result playing time was erratic for many which created some unnecessary drama. If you are going to take 25/26 you had better make sure everyone sees the field because in theory you are saying they were your best 25/26 at tryouts. Coaches were disinterested and approached it as a job and not a teaching experience. There was ZERO effort to connect with the kids let alone the parents. Coaches were not involved with the team in any capacity until a week before the first tournament. Outside of Maryland and FL tournaments(which were additional cost add-ons) tournaments were mostly 2nd tier(JDRF, Summer Slam & UMass-Neylat). The only real high level tournament that was included in original cost was Hofstra and even that had issues as the team played in JV division rather than varsity. Had the team attended the Mid Summer Classic Recruiting Showcase at Umass as originally communicated and posted rather than Umass-Neylat this would not have been an issue. Unfortunately this gave the appearance of the old "bait and switch" which I truly do NOT believe was the case to intentionally deceive but happened none the less. One of the previous posts was spot on regarding the Nationals where the roster was expanded even further to the ridiculous number of 27 players. Many players watched for long stretches from sideline while their teammates melted in the Fl sun. How could you possibly justify not having one practice prior to the Nationals especially given the influx of newly added players(5) and 2 new coaches? It was a recipe for disaster which wound up costing them in the end in FL.
While the Jesters are not perfect they could be considered the lesser of 2 evils when compared to some of the other big name programs because of cost and a director with good intentions. In the end you will find out they all have warts just to varying degrees. Hope this helps!

The 27 number seems far fetched given that the USL website specifically said the roster limit size is 24 for the U15 tourney. No matter what happened the outcome was a huge disappointment as the Jesters went down there confident that they would be able to take care of unfinished business and bring home the championship they came so close to last year. Didn't even really come close to being in the same class as Express, FCA, Florida etc. Huge drop-off in talent from last year's team.

the official rosters on the US lacrosse web site has the Jesters roster at 24 while the express roster was at 26, not sure if players were added after the official roster was posted - the post was a very good analysis of the good and bad - at the end of the day the Jesters, Ballers and fl$ were all very good teams and had had very good showings in Fla. the Express is a great team and beat everybody and deserved to be the Champions. It was a great tournament and a great experience for everybody involved and I think LI represented themselves very well.

What do you attribute this to? Coaching? Did kids leave from last years team? Too many kids? Seems odd that there would be that big of a drop off

Last years team aged out besides a couple of players, the coaches were the same as last year. Every team goes down there wanting to win but only one can. Last years team beat the Talons on a game maybe they should of lost this years lost in ot what more could you ask for every game had excitement and a couple of bounces go the other way and nobody would be crying. Congrats to the express they had a great tourny.

Listen everyone just stop the BS Just call the guy. I am sure Jim and Rich did not stand on the sidelines look at each other and say lets lose this game. Just stop man up and call the guy.
I am sure they would love to talk to you. ENJOY YOUR SUMMER I will see everyone at the tryouts my son will continue to play for them.

Extra players were added to make 27 at last minute. No drop in talent, U-15 Jesters played the older Jesters team you mention a week before in a game scrimmage and tied them,went to overtime. Up until Hofstra tournament they were undefeated, 24 games,one tie to fl$. The boys were ready.

My son played on this team, the last few posts summed all best
My son played and didn't play but he had a lousy
Year and the sitting was justified, he ll suck it up
And hopefully be back. There were issues but
With no offense loss in OT to Talons could have
Been different under different conditions.
Load of talent on this team. Congrats to Express
Best team Expess has has in long time!!!
My son will try out again and I do recommend the
Program to others.

2015 Jesters were not in Express Orange class
No one on Island was this year, but they were
Right their with fl$ and Ballers this year. Everyone
Needs to have a cooler head let your boys make
The decision on where they want to play, great
Group of kids.

Overall it was a good year so i do not want to speak badly about the entire jesters organization. My son had a good time all sesson. He got his fair share of playing time. Great group of kids and terriffic parents. Rich is a good guy and im sure he had the kids best interest at heart. I just dont know why they needed to bring down extra kids that had not played together nor practiced together
. The coaches at disney changed everything and the kids were a little lost. My son also saw very little playing time . I am not so fast to condemn an entire program because of 1
tornament. Next year if they take their 2016 team down there they should bring their regular coaching staff to avoid all the confusion on and off the field. If their regular coach had gone this thread would not exist. I mean no disrespect to rich or jim but if they planned on coaching in florida they should have had more involvment with the team during the season.

Re: U15 Championship Disney - 08/01/12 02:37 PM

The decision about which club to tryout for summer 2013 the most important factor for rising Juniors will be exposure at the best team tournaments where most of the college coaches go to. What tournaments would those be and which summer club teams usually go to those tournaments? King of the hill? Brine shoot out? Etc. in short, assuming Express orange is locked up for spots, what are the best alternatives for exposure at the best tournaments? If you have suggestions please list the club and the tournaments they wil be attending if you know their track record. Thanks.

Jester's U15 played fl$ in 3D the week before LarryMiller with about 14 kids and I think the same coaches that went to LarryMiller coached at fl$ in 3D, seems like that should have been a good tune up for LarryMiller if all the new players went to Baltimore with the new coaches and regular players, so anybody complaining about new coaches and new players but didn't go to Balt. need to dial it back.

Jester team that was at fl$ 3d only had about 14 or 15 kids so only a subset of FL team. I heard a pretty bad express 2nd team took them to double OT at 3d which could have been a warning sign.

The best 2015 teams in the Mid-Atlantic are Crabs, Looney's and VLC.

No need to dial it back as we are done with them. Future players should look elsewhere. fl$ 3d and disney were a complete waste of money and time. If the attack defense and coaching staff all changed for those last two tourneys you tell me where the ptoblem lies. If that is the planned coaching for the summer 2013aa rising juniors everyone save your money.

Re: U15 Championship Disney - 08/02/12 01:02 AM

There are many good travel programs on long island to choose from. Next year my son will decide for himself who he would like to tryout for. While our experience this year with the jesters was probably more on the positive side the ball was certainly dropped as soon as the coaching change was made. But for the most part I think you would hear mostly positive things about their organization.

Blame fl$ then for their tournament - not the Jesters. fl$ hyped the [lacrosse] out of that tournament.

U15 - U15 - U15
not 2015 or 2016
it was a U15 tournament and was open to any kid that was born after 9/1/96 - if it was a 2015 or a 2016 tournament everybody would be complaining that teams had older kids playing - most U15's are going into 10th grade. enough already

Re: U15 Championship Disney - 08/02/12 02:04 PM

As with any tournament you go to there will be teams that can compete and teams that don't belong. With that being said the haters out there who did not go to the u 15 can say what they want about the crabs not being there or kids going into soph year shouldn't be playing in a u 15. For those who were there you know the competition was legit! There were teams there that would have beaten the crabs or West Coast Stars (who are without a doubt in the top 5 teams in the nation). I do believe that many WCS kids were their playing for the west teams. Congrats to Express as they beat a very good FCA team. Looneys, team Florida(who was very impressive) Nor Cal, DH Elite, Ballers, Jesters, Blue Devil, 3d select all competed at a high level. For those who say it was not a legit tournament, you are sadly mistaken! ps would have been nice to see laxachusetts there.

What does the U stand for in U15? Maybe this is the confusion for everone. U=Under? If Under then yes most are all to old for this bracket by defition.
Posted By: Powderfinger

Re: U15 Championship Disney - 08/02/12 02:27 PM

I heard the date was November 1, not September.

The way I've always understood it, U15 means your kid turned 15 within the established calendar year. Not that they are under 15.

On the girls' side, which presumably has the same age criteria as the boys', the girls were for the most part rising sophomores with a few younger kids added on and also a scant few rising juniors with late birthdays.

Re: U15 Championship Disney - 08/02/12 02:47 PM

So should be 15O - 15 or Over. look at Baseball - 15U is 15 and under - you can't be 15 before a certain date. So older 15 year olds need to move up. Not sure what is the best way but I think the issue is what people understand or the consistancey in tournement requirments. I've been at tournements like most have where the expectation is thar your kids will be playing their grade age to see them walking onto fields with kids just having shaved before the game.

Powder you of all people should know the push is to move the respectable Nov date (which most NY can understand) to a Sept 1 date to accomidate the rest of the country which uses school year.

but remember, there will always be a younger or older child, had I would've know that I woulld have planned my kids to be born in Sept or Oct!!!

USLacrosse U15 - a player may not have turned 15 on or before 8/31/2011 - the tournament was for any player born on or after 9/1/1996. most of those kids were 9th grader going into 10th grade and graduating high school June 2015. but grade was not an issue it was an aged base tournament - anybody know if Jester coaches son played? is he a rising 11th grader? was he still age eligible?

Two boys played for the Jesters from last years team. Both were age eligible one of them was a coaches son.

Hate to say it but nobody cares about this stuff. You are all talking in circles since NOBODY is going to check since there are no requirements for ID's/rosters. It is an important topic but since NOBODY is going to check for ID's/rosters etc there will be those teams that cheat and those that don't. Thats the biggest problem with Lax.

There is an age verification for this tournament.

Re: U15 Championship Disney - 08/03/12 02:55 PM

I"m asking this question because I truly don't know the answer. There is an age verification but is this at the time of registration or with ID cards and before each game? How to they manage the age limits once the tourn starts?

There is no way to prevent people from cheating, there was no verification at this tournament - it was like every other tourney. once we registered and sent in a copy of the birth certificate you were done, no photo ID or anything, the only thing preventing cheating was if other teams knew the kid. anybody could have shown up and played under another registered kids name.
Posted By: Anonymous

Re: U15 Championship Disney - 08/07/12 01:51 PM

That is simply not true, all kids are required to supply birth certificates and rosters and credentials are checked, yes, of course if someone really wants to cheat and use someone else's birth certificate, it can be done, but hat is the case with all youth sports. I really think for the most part kids were age appropriate. Date of Birth 9/1/96 or later...

Re: U15 Championship Disney - 08/07/12 04:10 PM

Is it so hard for US lacrosse to require a photo to be saved of a child every year. and issue cards.

The only issue is getting hacked and having the kids info and picture out.

Please it isnt that hard..

Then the league can take the matter to a disciplinary level but by and large it is an impossible task. now try and take that to a 6 week summer team with no league to answer to and constantly changing rosters and I think it is an impossible task.

Then maybe the answer is league play vs tournement play. who is benefiting from these tournements? those who host the tournement and make the money - the kids aren't benefiting, playing 3 games in 4 or 5 hours. unless older and at a recruiting venue there is some value. Maybe we are exploiting our kids to much for the betterment of tournement hostes. On LI we wind up playing all LI teams for the most part when we travel. A local league for club play with controlled ages would be better, plus it would force more competition with these clubs to play agasint each other. 91 vs Express more often?
