Any word on when the season starts?

I heard they are moving the OBLL to Suffolk county. Can anyone confirm or deny ?

About a month ago our coach indicated March 10 was the first weekend. Haven't been able to confirm though.

BOTC just spoke with Mike Chanenchuk this morning about the OBLL. According to Mike, games will begin this weekend. He committed to supplying BOTC with a team listing and as much of the schedule as possible by early this afternoon.

CageSage... will you update with any additional schedules? It's only a mere 48 hours out. The league coordinator (MC) might want to hire a part time resource to do this scheduling. It has always been notoriously late in sharing and disseminating information and that is a true shame given the caliber of play is pretty good.

BOTC will publish additional schedule details as they are made available to us.

Note that we called Mike Chanenchuk this week directly to bring you the Week #1 information and provided an invitation to send us any and all updates for publication here on BOTC. Should we receive updates, we will be sure to pass those along.

Thanks very much for your interest in BOTC's coverage of the weekly OBLL action.

Relax Big Boy,many factors are coming into play such as field space and weather and teams joinging late and dropping out late.

No we won't relax. This is not a just now situation. This has been going on for years with MC and getting the schedule out. It really is a joke. Stop counting your money and trying to make more money and take care of your customers who have already paid you.

Who's "we"? If you are a coach, call the league. If you are a parent or player, call your club coach.

BOTC has published the current teams listing earlier in this thread. While there could always be one or two changes, you have a pretty clear picture at this point of who's "in" and who's "out".

It was nice to see the boys outside. Beautiful fields except for the cages. Shameful. The cages weren't even fit for a landfill. Hopefully they will be replaced before next week.

Fields at field of dreams were weak, you could barely see the lines. Igloo 4th grade easily beat RVC Futures and when I left Igloo 3rd grade was up one on 91 orange with about 5 minutes to play, not sure how that game turned out but both those teams will be tough to beat, although the season is just beginning so who knows.

OK, was kind of hoping to find out if my team was playing next weekend and if so, where and what time and against whom. I totally get, this is how this league is run and if we don't like it, we are more than happy to go elsewhere. We do like the league, just would really like a schedule of the season. Totally get it.. stuff changes, but is it really that pushy for us to ask for an online schedule? This league always let's leagues know by Wednesday what the details are for that weekend. Come on.. the leagues been in place long enough that some kinks could've been worked out by now.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: 2013 Oyster Bay Lacrosse League - 03/04/13 03:54 AM
better yet, they make enough money for someone to coordinate and run a webite. We should not have to wait for a post of a cheap PDF or Exel clip to see a schedule.

If this is supposed to be the best spring league on LI act like it. Post results and schedules. I get you want parity but you need to play a few games first to get to that. Set the scheulde.


I bet in texas they arnt saying well they are only 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 (when does it end)

Posted By: Anonymous Re: 2013 Oyster Bay Lacrosse League - 03/04/13 03:10 PM
They can't put the schedule out for the season. Instead of using some of the money they gather from the $2,000 per team that they charge to pay for their own fields to use, it stays in their pockets and they mooch fields in Massapequa and now Plainedge for free.
The league's only expense is ref fees. If they really wanted to be the best spring league, they should take their money and pay for fields somewhere and run it there. But that would obviously effect their bottom line, which is obviously more important to them.
Tell MC to go use Cantiague Park,Farmingdale Colege or wherever and they can the run the league there.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: 2013 Oyster Bay Lacrosse League - 03/04/13 07:39 PM
If they move the games to fields where they had to pay, the fee would be even higher. Keep the games where they are. Who is their hook up in Oyster Bay to get these fields ?

blah blah blah... we all know this, but unless someone starts another league, OBLL is it and your coach opted in.. no one held a gun to his head. BTW, I don't play for Express and agree with you, but I too have a choice and my team chooses to play in OBLL, so, given that, I was hoping that MC might do the right thing for once and publish a schedule.

BOTC has requested additional scheduling data for this league. If/when we receive more of the schedule for the Spring season, BOTC will share that content.

Everything goes through the Town Supervisors Office just look into who plays for Express and has a high ranking job with the Town and you will have your answer. i wonder if that person pays for his kid to play on Express or even belongs on the team but then again how can there be any political corruption

They have the Town Attorney on their staff. He may be paid and he may not be paid by the express, that I can not confirm .His son also goes to St Anthony. That is how they get the fields.

Nice discussion fuel, but there is no fire underneath it. This field discussion has taken place in every youth sport since John Burns Park in Massapequa was first constructed. Stop looking for "inside information" and understand the filing process for procurement of Nassau County field space.

I have heard the OBLL complaints about scheduling and seen discussion about fields etc. I know coaches make a ton of requests to play at certain times, certain days, multiple games in one day, to play and avoid teams etc. So a lot goes into scheduling. We just got our schedule for this coming Staurday (today is Tuesday, this seems pretty fair to me). The time is close to what we reuqested which is fair as well. The fields are fine and the officiating is good (2 professional officials). I get that PAL produces a schedule in advance for the entire season but they also dont accomodate a lot of rquests. So, OBLL may not be ideal in scheduling but I think this topic has been beat to death. Lets go back to trash talking.

Jack $$ why ruin it for the masses! I beleive the comments went in the direction of information for a schedule, get off the topic of the fields, do you want the prices higher.

I think the obyll is a good competitive league sure information is slow to come out, but if they seek parity amoung the league, that can only happen once the teams play. and that takes time.

since teams dont play every week at the very least pleaseput out a scheudle 2 weeks so families can plan. 91 puts the schedule for their "affiliated" events. On their site why cant you?

In SCPAL the director of each town is given the dates of his home games and it's his job t o schedule them on Sunday. The only caveat is the games have to touching, you can't do 9, then 11then 2, I'f the Directors choose they can reach out to other directors and make requests that for the most part honored if possible. I think it's a simpler task

Parents should know the deal before writing checks. If they weren't told that they were doing a spring league and they didn't ask, oh well.

My son played OBLL for 3 years and most of the games were blowouts and they got nothing out of it but shooting practice. Hopefully, the clubs are behaving better these days and things have improved. Lots of BS with who you were scheduled to play and who actually showed up. I think we played the same teams 3 times one year.

It's nice to get the boys out in the spring playing games and shaking off the rust but IMO it's not worth the 2 or 3 meaningful games they played a year. Especially with winter leagues and winter training sessions being all the rage lately. Some of these boys are already practicing with the JV and the middle school season starts in a few weeks. They will get plenty of lacrosse in the spring between school and club practices without the OBLL.

Last year the competition and teams were good. It's a good practice league to tune up for the full-on travel season. If your intent is to get your team together to work on plays and practice working together as a team, then it's worth it. If your objective is for fierce competition, then let me know where you find that in a spring league here on LI.

Based on the last 2 years the only downside of OBLL is that the league administration does not do the right thing and publish a schedule ahead of time so that players and parents can schedule their other activities and family commitments. We've asked this on this forum several times, but either the main decision maker over at OBLL (aka MC) doesn't care or doesn't care.

Some elite teams play up a year against some good teams so I kind of balances out. The point is they're playing real games. Maybe TB has other ideas. Why don't you ask them . Teams can always contact other teams and set up a game.

I'm a true Blue parent, and most parents are delighted with the fact that they are sitting out of that sad, disorganized mess of a league (OBL)...
True Blue has plenty of practices, scrimmages and spring tournaments by high quality coaches...
if people want to leave, let them... plenty of elite players are gravitating to TB - non nonsence approach at very reasonable rates

Please stop with this nonsense. Lets say you have a 5th grade team(2020). You would miss out on playing the Vipers, the Outlaw "A" and "B" teams and an Express team.
All for the low, low price of $2,000 per team!
And since they are the only teams in that age group, you can play them 2 or 3 times each.

The Directors, Coaches and Parents are the ones who should "Stop the Nonsense".
If everyone would play in the league it would be better. Stop resenting, hating and complaining about the league and go start one "a non profit" out of the kindness of your heart. The kids want to play but the parents want to [lacrosse] and complain.

Some Tournaments cost $1,000 plus for the day. $2,000 for 10 games is not so bad.

Go get the fields, get the officials, get the teams, put out a master schedule and make sure it all runs smoothly! Oh, and do it for free.

Small minded people [lacrosse] and complain about what other people do but they never do anything on their own.

Play in the league or don't but please stop complaining.

What is the difference between Outlaws Black and Silver? If each B/S would play each other per grade would there be a big difference in the outcome '20 thru '17? Understanding B may come out on top.

Why would you say that? Only a member of the organization must have wrote they will loose players for not joining Oyster bay. Did anyone know they were not a part of Oyster bay when that post was written. What team are the posters from ? Blue/A or White/B? Many people think true blue is a good organization and may jump at the oppurtunity to join next year if they thought there was room on their established '17 or '19 "Blue/A" teams. Not sure how many would jump if it were the "White/other" team.

Each town director gets the entire schedule. I am sure there is more than one director on this site.....Unless the Grand Poobah of PAL Lacrosse has forbid them from sharing it....and I wouldn't be surprised if he did!

Did you get your schedule? Do you know if Suffolk promotes balance teams or teams with players of "Similar" talent?

Posted By: Anonymous Re: 2013 Oyster Bay Lacrosse League - 03/19/13 12:53 AM
What towns always provide a good game with talented players? What towns now have 6th graders who played up last year playing 6th grade again?

Smithtown or Three Village do you split teams by ability andor do you play Nassua with an "A" team and Suffolk with "B" team?

Three village are your travel players allowed to play PAL this year?

Oyster Bay is a glorified scrimmage, it is great for the kids to be outside playing. Teams and coaches and refs that we have been involved with are understanding - nobody runs up the score to be rude, ALL teams will be missing players due to conflicts due to the late schedule announcements - I am sure it is not done on purpose, it is the way it is - take it for what it is - it is a Spring league for travel opportunities...relax....have fun watching the kids play, or have fun coaching them, standings are not kept - and scores are barely kept in my experience

One of the reasons for the schedules to be released weekly is to actually avoid these types of lopsided matched. BOTC would strongly urge your coach to contact Mike Chanenchuk to make sure that this scheduling problem does not impact your team members for a second week.

My sons team has been up significantly each game they have played. It isnt fun for the winning team either.

Hopefully after another week they have enough info to rank /place teams fairly.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: 2013 Oyster Bay Lacrosse League - 03/21/13 06:33 PM
I think we would all agree piling it on a 4th grade team is unacceptable and things should be done to avoid that (3 pass rule, lots of subs, etc). However, even if a coach does those things, a superior team can keep scoring and preventing the other team from scoring. And no one wants to tell his kids they can't play lacrosse and try and score. It's not fair to the kids on the superior team who want to play and I think it can be even more demorilizing for the losing team if it looks like the other team is just toying with them by passing the ball around. It's a hard issue. Part of the problem is all of these elite club teams who have few equally good teams to play against (especially at the 3rd and 4th grade levels) so they end up crusing inferior teams.

Agreed. Unfortunatley it continues past 3rd and 4th grade. The post about a team winning "significantly" was not talking about a 3rd or 4th grade team. Even at the older ages some of the clubs 2nd teams are as strong as another clubs only/A team and other clubs 1st/only team are only as strong as a B team. That is okay, as long as their directors make sure they play where they can get better.

I hope within a week or two it works itself out. Last week Shamrock impact players playing this week we have school breaks. Like G'n'R says just a little patience, yeahhhhh.

Enjoy the cold it is sunny in LarryMiller.

As far as the 19-0 game, the winning team has 17 players. 10 different players scored in the game. 90% of the goals were assisted. There was no mocking or celebrating after goals. Town of Oyster Bay does not impose the 3 pass rule and they continue to face off after every goal. Not sure there was much the coach could have done. Demoralizing children is never the goal. I have been on both sides of lopsided games.

The Oyster Bay League adjusts the schedules to match up teams with the same ability.

How can they do that if there are only 4 or 5 teams total in a specific age group? Wait a couple more weeks, and teams will start realizing that they are playing against the same team for the 3rd time.

So is the Terps B team for express in 8th grade and 91 white is B team for team 91? If so that is a much better B team for express jeez!

If you click on the 516 Lacrosse link towards the bottom of the Long Island Clubs content island along the right side of your display, you can go to their home page and find out more in addition to contacting them. The program is based in Nassau County with events run in Bethpage and elsewhere.

I don't believe it is the same team...they didn't even have uniforms

I believe they are kids that play as Oilers during the summer together- but a few are playing local town travel team, so there are added kids in place of those playing with other teams.. They are a good team. A few players with excellent talent at this age. Not my sons team though- so don't have more details than that.

Actually, just looked at their site and this does not look like it is the team I'm thinking of. Maybe they are just 516...?

I see that as a benifit to the league that out of townewrs can play a game or two. If your team gets to play guest appearences woudl you complain.

I agree. For better or worse OBLL is the most challenging spring lax league for club teams. We all know how much it costs going in. We all know the scheduling isn't perfect and we all have the option of playing in it or not. Who cares if MC makes money and all the better for LI lax if MC can get some out of state teams to come play

Is this the 9th grade Crabs or the 8th grade team? They are both considered U-15. If this is the 9th grade Crabs I hope it is the Baracudas and not the Terps Black that are going to play them. No disrespect to the Terps but the 9th grade Crabs are on a different level.

I agree. 9th grade crabs are tremendously good. I don't think BCudas every beat them, but thats Maryland style with the held back players and what we hear on this board consistently. 8th grade terps black and 91 orange will be in a lot of trouble if its the older group.

That would be because no kid on the 9th grade team is 15. All older. MD teams play down, proven fact.

On the Crabs website it has the Crabs 2015 team coming up to play. Not the U15 team.

That could be ugly if the 10th grade team comes up to play 8th graders.

again, i don't have a problem with MC making money, but the leauge is poorly run. to find out on a Wednesday what time and where your Sat game is is just inconsiderate to others. We all have other things to do on Sat and now we plan our day around waiting to find out when the game will be played. And i had no choice to be in or out. My sons team chosse to be in so if he does not play he falls behind.

You cannot tell me that with a little more planning we can't get schedules ahead of time.

IF and that is a BIG IF... the referees call the game with limited contact - which is how the game should be called and played.... the competition would be great for all - hopefully they can get a crew that has worked together, and even a 3rd ref for some of these games

Looking at the Crabs site I noticed that it costs 500-900 for the season to play with them. That's the difference between a non profit club and the for profit milk you dry clubs we have on here on the island.

That would be 16 and 17 year old sophomores to be exact. As most of that team will be 19 as seniors in HS. MD lax, gotta love it. You see in MD 2015 means the grade you're in, not the grade you're going into. If it is there 2015 team, that's just plain silly.

Ok, why dont we just cut the nonsense. My son isnt on the "Black" but he knows as does every other kid that plays travel lax on Long Island that your team has several older kids who would otherwise be 9th graders. Its really not a big deal but I still dont understand why people like you feel the need to deny it. If you dont know who the older kids are, ask your fellow parents, Im sure theyll be happy to point them out to you..........

And turtles beat 91 in the winter by a bunch of points, so that happened already also. Terps black beat TB in shamrock championship game and TB crushed 91 so it seems like 91 is not in the upper end of the 2017 class.

Personal relationship between coaches?? I do believe the 91 team traveled to Maryland last year for some friendly scrimmages.


91 was never scheduled to play them & they didnt. Sorry, mis-information on their website, I guess.

Crabs then had field day with merchant marine league all stars today 14-1!

Big kids....many u15's, some u-16's. Crabs have some holes in their game but the Terps O couldn't capitalize on numerous possessions and shots and crabs had three or 4 goals on an empty cage when goalie came forward up field and crabs capitalized quickly on the turnovers.

Shoulda, woulda, coulda...

Very honest and accurate. Nice to see many parents whom didn't have kids on express to watch a good clash between LI vs MD select lax. Some were saying Terps black go down to MD next week to play them again. Did 91 play crabs also after express game? If so what was score?

I don't know about any merchant marine league all star team, but someone scheduled the Team LI U-13 team to play the U-15 Crabs! Why? The Crabs' parents said they didn't want to drive 5 hours to play a U-13 team, and the Team LI parents' reaction is unprintable. Supposedly (all rumor), the Team 91 U-15 team didn't want any part of the Crabs so dropped out and the Team LI U-13 team had the honor of replacing them. The score was 25-1 or 30-1 or something like that, but who's counting?

Holy exaggeration. It was 13-1. Were they overmatched? absolutely, Did they compete? absolutely. They actually won about 70% of the face offs! Kuos to those 12 YEAR olds! No one was upset. The crabs were clean an respectful. In fairness, I wouln't have wante to travel 5 HRS FOR THAT GAME EITHER.

Crabs brought two teams. A mixed u15/16 and a U13. The mixed 15/16 team beat the 2017 guys by 14-1 (10-0@half).

Kudos to Team LI 2018 team! Their coaches and players had more HEART & B*LLS than the 2010 MLL Coach of the Year! Way to go 91!

2017 Express black was in a excellent battle for a bulk of that crabs game, MD kids were older but nobody cared and great game and Team LI 2018 played those older kids with an 150% effort! Shame on whoever put those 12 year olds against 14 & 15 year olds.

For the record, the Crabs 2017 team is completely made up of U15 eligible players. It is not a mix of U15/U16. It is an 8th grade team. I spoke with a few of the parents and the story was the same. They brought up two teams, a 2017(U15) and a 2018(U13).

They faced a good squad in the Terps Black and won, played and beat a surprisingly competitive U13 team(noone knows why) and and played an beat a team of Merchant Marine All Stars(talented individuals but little team chemistry).

Given the number of tournaments in the summer, there is a good chance Terps Black will have another shot at Crabs.

The players on the Crabs weren't hiding they were older, as most of us know being in "8th grade" means NOTHING. Maryland invented the "held back" fiasco. Sounds like someone on hear is saying terps black is playing crabs again next week? Why and where?

Please research before you type, CRABS are NOT listed as Crabs 2017 on their on website. They are listed as Crabs u15. Which means they are covering their rear ends. Why call a team "Crabs u15" than call their frosh team "Crabs 2016"?

91 dropping out is Bull---- they don't play in the Oyster Bay leaugue and were never involved. Mule's 91 team did travel to Md last spring to play what is now the U15 crabs and lo and behold they WON so kudos to the U13 team Li for playing the game.

U13 is 80% 7th grade 2018 and 20% 2017. Add 2 years for u15 and that's 9th and 10th graders.

Next year the Terps, Glads, T-Blue, fl$, and 91 should all put their issues aside and create one (or two) 'all-stsr' teams to play the Crabs followed by a bbq at the field for the families who made the trip from Baltimore. Let's face it, there is a good chance a lot of the these talented athletes will be playing together in college.

No one said it was the same team, different team or other. 91 went down to MD last year & played the Crabs, had a great game & a great time. The point being made was 91 was NEVER scheduled to play the Crabs @ any point this weekend. It does NOT matter what their website said, it was NEVER set up! How many teams did their website say they were playing? How many did they play? & was it only 1 that was scheduled to play that actually did play them? The website was incorrect. Have you ever heard of an organization "playing up" an event? Maybe, just maybe you are misinformed & uneducated to the truth.

Please stop. As a parent on the Mule' team, we were never scheduled, nor did we even hear any talk of this. You may hate us, and that is fine, but it simply was never even discussed, nor spoke of. Our team is good, and our people are even better. We are a good team, and are capable of a fine season. True Blue DID beat us recently. The verifiable truth is that they (Blue) beat us SOUNDLY in the first half 5-1, the final was 7-5. Good for them. Many good folks over there also. We can watch a game with most anybody, and are glad to do so. Hopefully we will see them again soon for another fine display. We were never to play the Crabs this year. I cannot assure you with a guarantee, but this thread is the first that any of us are hearing about this. Too much bashing, attacking, and simple "un-truths" are happening on here, made easier by anonymous nature. Sadly, I will choose to do same, as it would be a matter to be ashamed of, to have taken part in this. Shame on ME.

Next year, all of the gutless lacrosse dad pansies should act like the men that they want their kids to grow to be. Then we'd really show Baltimore that we are good. The kids see this, and are ashamed. There IS hope for them! No Balls stuff. Watch a game, take the loss or win, keep practicing. OR, you could look to bail on your team, bash your opponent afterwards, accuse the coaches of nonsense, completely misrepresent the scores, accuse the bigger kids of being older than they claim..... You know, all of that fun stuff.

Not a shot at any of you 91 parents or players! You guys defiantly have a good team and good people but YOUR COACH keeps you in the dark. Don't feel bad, so does our express coach (they all do it to us he keep them in business).

Hmmm...the lady doth protest too much methinks...perhaps you'd care to enlighten us to anything of interest on OBLL?

Fact is; there was a great team in town. They challenged and beat everyone. That's a pretty good topic to chew on. LI is supposed to be the best...current writing on the wall of the future says "it ain't so!"

So yes, it's a hot topic. Don't read or chime in if your kids team wasn't involved, however, you may want to contemplate the current state of LI LAX compared to MD, PA VA, Conn. The talent has caught and surpassed many of our Local "powerhouse" programs.

You should be interested.

Plus, that team is a true u-13 when all boys on terps are only true 7th graders, most have not yet even turned 13. Playing against boys a year older is a big deal--they are bigger, stronger and faster.

2018 terps played poorly in the first half and came back strong in the second...The Crab goilie really won the game as that kid made save after save.

If I recall it was a one score game up until the last few seconds...Great experience for all boys.

Terps traveling down to MD this weekend for the remathch.

You really believe most 7th grade terps haven't turned 13 yet? It's already April. I'll bet most are oct nov dec 99 birthdays. Not that it's wrong or their faults ,just answering back at your comment.

If you want to know how Long stacks up against the rest of Country just look at where the D1 schools are getting their players from .

Hmmm...the lady doth protest too much methinks...perhaps you'd care to enlighten us to anything of interest on OBLL?

Fact is; there was a great team in town. They challenged and beat everyone. That's a pretty good topic to chew on. LI is supposed to be the best...current writing on the wall of the future says "it ain't so!"

So yes, it's a hot topic. Don't read or chime in if your kids team wasn't involved, however, you may want to contemplate the current state of LI LAX compared to MD, PA VA, Conn. The talent has caught and surpassed many of our Local "powerhouse" programs.

You should be interested.

I am fairly certain there is a prominent attack on the 2018 terps with an August Bday who would not qualify for U13...being too old. I bet there are more......

Their now getting their D1 kids from Pennsylvania our interac league is loaded with Div. 1 recruits, one the youngest ever to commit to Hopkins a freshman. Malvern, haverford, Episcopal, Penn Charter, Hill, Lasalle, Conestoga, St. Joeseph Prep, Germantown Academy, Bishop Shanahan, plus a ton of public high schools all within 40 minutes of eachother. That area is probably the biggest producer of Div 1 lax players per square mile than anywhere in the country.

High School lacrosse? Are you serious? Read below and these schools have flooded NCAA lacrosse.

Garden City, Manhassett, Smithtown E, West Islip, Cold Spring Habor, Ward Melville, Massapequa, Farmingdale. Than there is also a couple of private schools called Chaminade and St. Anthony's.

Yes PA is a hotbed for sure with a lot of very good players. But IMO you can't compare to LI or MD. As you read this the #1 & #2 NCAA lacrosse teams are UMD & Cornell. Both LOADED with LI kids that are not just starters but STARS! Three of the top 5 middies in the country are from LI, bottom-line is PA cannot compare to LI & MD with top NCAA players OR recruits. Not yet, maybe never.

From my knowledge of 2018, 2017 and 2016 classes in club ball:

2016's-Crabs (MD) has the best class of players and LI is 2nd with Express & Outlaws

2017's- LI is LOADED with talented. But will admit Philly area has two good groups (dukes & freedom) but LI has Turtles, Express Black, Trueblue, 91, fl$

2018- Again easy win to LI with 91, Express Terps and Team LI are also LOADED with super 7th graders

Im not dissing PA at all, I might be missing some good PA teams so please post them here. At 3D Blue Chip in Fla the stand out players were the Mid Atlantic region and it was the LI & MD players that were the standouts.

Posted By: Anonymous Re: 2013 Oyster Bay Lacrosse League - 04/09/13 02:24 PM
I think you need to look at the individuals coming out of Long Island and not focus on the teams. Maryland has one true premier program. The top players from the Baltimore area all follow in Rabil's footsteps and play for the Crabs. Every other club, Green Turtles, Breakers, etc. are all "safety schools". On the other hand, Long Island's elite teams are dilluted and spread throughout six or seven programs with all of the clubs fighting for the best kids. I think if a combination of the Brine All-stars North & South teams played together for a while, you would have a similar Crabs-like product.

7 to 5 crabs. One goal game till the last seconds...

The score was 8-6 crabs. Great game but the refs made it closer then it should have been.

Refs made it closer? Are you kidding? It was an evenly called game to say the least. The crab goalie won the game with a bunch of great saves...

Crabs are a good team and can play with anyone, but no one needs your "blame the ref" nonsense.

This is actually brilliant - in two successive posts, we have two posters claiming the score was either 7-5 or 8-6. Two people watching the same game and cannot agree on the final score. If not for the fact that it was a one goal game with an "open cage" goal on the end, chances are that there would have even been more of a discrepancy.

This is just one example as to why the results should be phoned into a central location and recorded. Not only to keep track of these individual games, but to allow the teams to build a proper portfolio of results for future tournaments and, dare we say it, rankings within their age groups.

Imagine if the teams were bracketed properly before the start of the season which would then allow schedules to be constructed at the start of a season for the whole season.

Interesting point. Dissecting your comment, there exists a team on LI that is a "crab like" product. They are called the Turtles. With reference to Brine, the north team consists of something like 15 turtles and two former.

I am from Long Island, my son plays for a LI Club Team (he is younger than the 2017 and 2018 teams I have read about). I havent followed all of the Crabs games, scores, whether they are older or younger, bigger or smaller than our kids, whether the refs call it in their favor or ours. I am not even sure whether the Crabs sent one team or two but it appears to me that two things happened, the Crabs won every game or close to it that they played against LI and that perhaps some LI teams even ducked them? I hope I am wrong and no I am not a Crabs parent, I am just curious as I thought the best lacrosee was played on LI as a matter of fact I preached it to my friends in PA and FL. Please tell me that the Crabs didnt come to LI and beat all of our best teams?

Easy with the drama... If you know anything about lacrosse you would know the Baltimore area and the crabs are also a "hot bed" and have very good programs. Any day a team from the area can compete with a team from Long Island. Doesn't mean Long Island lacrosse is weak.

You will hear of games with 91 , turtles etc going down there and sweeping a weekend also. Doesn't mean lacrosse played down in Baltimore is weak either.

In the world of youth club lacrosse, LI 8th graders average 13 or 14 years old - MD 8th graders have learners permits

No drama and I know LI lacrosse well. My only point is that as I scanned these posts it appears that the crabs came here and beat all or almost all LI teams which surprised me. Again my son isn't of the age but I thought turtles, terps, some 91 teams, team LI were the best in their age group. And I agree on any given day one very good team can get the better of another ver good team. That's is why I was surprised that it appears the crabs swept LI. Again, no drama. Not disrespecting LI lax, just surprising. Are the crabs by far the best MD teams or are there other programs comparable. I m aware MD has great lacrosse I just wasn't aware that their youth club lax was as strong as ours.

Ok so maybe we are closing the Gap....quickly. Lasalle high school has 14 Div 1 commits. Haverford is 2 years removed as the national champions. Malvern prep will be a contender this year. As more PA guys get into the Division 1 coaching ranks you will see the shift. There are so many kids that get over looked because they don't have an in through a relationship. Dukes is notoriously the best club in the country, Dukes HHH is a very strong u15, Freedom has a few strong programs, 2019's played in the Dicks national as well as the 2017. We will get there.

Ok I dont understand all the confusion. Maryland is and has always been a hotbed of lacrosse. Why is anyone suprised that the Crabs came up here and beat up on a few of our teams. The Crabs draw the best kids in Maryland just as the Express draws the best kids on Long Island. I bet the Turtles and Crabs would be an epic game to watch. There are other hotbeds emerging as well, NJ, PA and CT all have excellent lacrosse and are rapidly catching up. Long Island will always be a hotbed and will always be deep with talented la players, but I dont know why anyone is suprised that we are not the king of the mountain in every age group. Perfect example is this past weekends Top Rank tournament. A team from Rumsen, NJ came in and beat West Islip, Syosset and Garden City to win the 8th grade division.

Not sure what you are referring to as my boy. I just did some due dilligence and compared the turtle roster to the brine roster. The turtles are tried and true and can never be accepted in they eyes of people like you. Your're not that disgruntled guy from GC who left that team are you?

Seems like that is exactly what he is implying. Still...it stands to reason and to recollect that there was a certain turtle who wasn't even on the call back list who happened to appear over night like magic on the website and another who wasn't even select to the main "culled" field, who the some how made the call back and then the north list.

There weren't any others from any other team who might have surpassed these two individuals, yet somehow were excluded from the north team?

Interesting. food for thought. Provocative thought at that.

how many players on the turtles play lacrosse exclusively? I'll bet its half, and the crabs even more than half their platers are dedicated to lacrosse in the 8th grade...

you will see the rest (at least the next 2-4 teams) of the "field" of club teams catch up to the turtles on size and athletics very shortly...
On my son's club team, there all play at least one other school sport...

I really haven't concerned myself with Maryland age thing until this week. I was watching the Albany/JH game. Wells Stanwick scored a goal. The commentator said the 21 year old Sophomore scores. I know that I started school at the age of four, turned five in October of that year. I started my senior year at the age of 16, and my sophomore year of college at the age of 18. I turned 19 during the year.......

That my friends is the difference between a Maryland 2017 and Long Island 2017 team. Nothing else needs to be said.....

Unfortunately the Brine teams were corrupted by a couple of coaches (we know which two, JM and JD) who assigned players from their teams to play on the North team. The Brine teams will never work as long as coaches with their own agenda are picking the teams. Last year it was a pleasure having the boys play together for a college coach without interference from outsiders. Unfortunately that will not be the case this year!!

It would have been nice if players were not wearing their travel club helmets and were asked to try out all wearing white helmets. As a parent of a pole from outside LI who tried out and didn't make it, the process seemed flawed. My son IMHO was NOT in the top 6 or 8 poles trying out, some really good talent, and should have not made the cut. There were at least 30 poles trying out, but in the end, the team was divided by helmets with the reality they could have chosen any of the top 10 or so and not lost much.

Let's understand the Brine event,and the guy who runs it, is a money grab who makes all his dough on the front end with the try out fees so the actual event (like most) is not all its cracked up to be unless your son enjoys playing against "kids" from Georgia and Alabama in the 95 degree heat of a MD Summer. He wants the top end LI kids to go to validate his tourney and keep the $$ rolling in.

Darn straight - lots of folks are gaming the system more concerned if little/now big Johnny is going to play D1, even if he graduates college by the age of 24.

Especially true at younger levels which is why you need birth year teams - not U13 but '99, '00, '01. Let's see how the "oversized" 7th and 8th grader competes against kids his own age - like frosh/soph HS.

So happy to see Hopkins losing - what motivation does Little/Big Johnny have to get better if he is given his prize at 15. System is beyond broken at the top which is why the Loyolas of the world will be more common place.

This is actually brilliant - in two successive posts, we have two posters claiming the score was either 7-5 or 8-6. Two people watching the same game and cannot agree on the final score. If not for the fact that it was a one goal game with an "open cage" goal on the end, chances are that there would have even been more of a discrepancy.

This is just one example as to why the results should be phoned into a central location and recorded. Not only to keep track of these individual games, but to allow the teams to build a proper portfolio of results for future tournaments and, dare we say it, rankings within their age groups.

Imagine if the teams were bracketed properly before the start of the season which would then allow schedules to be constructed at the start of a season for the whole season.


I am from Long Island, my son plays for a LI Club Team (he is younger than the 2017 and 2018 teams I have read about). I havent followed all of the Crabs games, scores, whether they are older or younger, bigger or smaller than our kids, whether the refs call it in their favor or ours. I am not even sure whether the Crabs sent one team or two but it appears to me that two things happened, the Crabs won every game or close to it that they played against LI and that perhaps some LI teams even ducked them? I hope I am wrong and no I am not a Crabs parent, I am just curious as I thought the best lacrosee was played on LI as a matter of fact I preached it to my friends in PA and FL. Please tell me that the Crabs didnt come to LI and beat all of our best teams?


Easy with the drama... If you know anything about lacrosse you would know the Baltimore area and the crabs are also a "hot bed" and have very good programs. Any day a team from the area can compete with a team from Long Island. Doesn't mean Long Island lacrosse is weak.

You will hear of games with 91 , turtles etc going down there and sweeping a weekend also. Doesn't mean lacrosse played down in Baltimore is weak either.


No drama and I know LI lacrosse well. My only point is that as I scanned these posts it appears that the crabs came here and beat all or almost all LI teams which surprised me. Again my son isn't of the age but I thought turtles, terps, some 91 teams, team LI were the best in their age group. And I agree on any given day one very good team can get the better of another ver good team. That's is why I was surprised that it appears the crabs swept LI. Again, no drama. Not disrespecting LI lax, just surprising. Are the crabs by far the best MD teams or are there other programs comparable. I m aware MD has great lacrosse I just wasn't aware that their youth club lax was as strong as ours.

The crabs didn't sweep LI. The U 13 team beat a westchester team an express by 1 an 2 goals but lost to 91 by 6. They didn't play the 2018 TLI because they were too busy playing the u 15 crabs team.Terps 2017 black played the U 15 crabs team tough, but in reality terps Black is closer to a U 14 team. If you want to match the teams up correctly the crabs should have been playing the Barracudas or the Outlaw 2017. Then you would see how LI stacks up.

So are you implying the Brine South team for LI is all weak players?


Seems like that is exactly what he is implying. Still...it stands to reason and to recollect that there was a certain turtle who wasn't even on the call back list who happened to appear over night like magic on the website and another who wasn't even select to the main "culled" field, who the some how made the call back and then the north list.

There weren't any others from any other team who might have surpassed these two individuals, yet somehow were excluded from the north team?

Interesting. food for thought. Provocative thought at that.

Just check NYPLL site, NOTHING about Birth Certificates. As I thought.



Posted By: Anonymous Re: 2013 Oyster Bay Lacrosse League - 04/10/13 05:10 PM
with the number of large supply of players, do we really need a team every 2 yrs? Why not have a team per Birth Year or even grade?

A player born Fall of 97 playing against one born Summer of 99 is within the 'rules' but not equitable. Really up to parent ultimately, but rational parents can make irrational decisions.

Always been impressed that the Island teams play at 'age' and do not game the system as much as other wanna be up and coming areas. Not as familiar with MD youth lax but see it in CT and NJ a lot, especially when Jr is heading to private$.

Fact is; there was a great team in town. They challenged and beat everyone. That's a pretty good topic to chew on. LI is supposed to be the best...current writing on the wall of the future says "it ain't so!"

So yes, it's a hot topic. Don't read or chime in if your kids team wasn't involved, however, you may want to contemplate the current state of LI LAX compared to MD, PA VA, Conn. The talent has caught and surpassed many of our Local "powerhouse" programs.

You should be interested.

This subject is comical! It is our own fault that we end up playing these U-15 teams made up of all 8th GRADERS from Maryland! A september 1997 kid here is squarely in the 10th grade! There he is a freaking 8th grader! Yet we keep rolling our 12,13 and 14 year old 8th graders and wonder why we might not stack up! There is nothing wrong with LI lax, other than the club owners and tournament directors (usually the same people) insist on inviting these out of state clubs to our GRADE LEVEL tournaments! Who's fault is that? These Maryland clubs love it! They aren't even cheating thanks to the brain trust running the tournaments! Unfortunately it is gonna take a kid who is outweighed by 100 lbs to get really hurt for someone to give a sh*t!

I'm from LI, and no, the fact that a stacked Crabs team beat some so-called elite LI club teams does not mean LI lax is in any sort of trouble.

It is delusional to think these clubs represent anything other than the competitiveness of that particular club. Look at the turnover in those programs. Parents get fed up with the cost and the politics, and many families simply choose not to pay the ridiculous fees these clubs charge. By fourth and fifth grade most of the first-choice kids have already moved on.

And as stated elsewhere on these boards, the "eliteness" of these clubs continues to erode as more and more town teams form summer and year-round programs staffed with school district coaches (who are looking to cash-in on the summer fees). These programs are almost always cheaper, in many cases have just as good coaching, and the limited driving to and from practice is a major plus for the parents.

Congrats to the Crabs. Obviously, those willing to waste a whole weekend in bridge traffic driving to and from LI to play depleted local competition in the freezing cold, were smart enough to bring the kids needed to win.

Yes the HUB fields have to be rented by the league. Even if they play full field the width of the field is alot shorter than regulation.

These facilities are fantastic for winter but it's SPRING lax season now!

Why is there so much discussion on how much $$$ is paid to a coach or a travel club??

If you don't want to pay....don't! Stop the incessant whining already. If it costs too much; get a better job or have your kid do something else and not spend your money.

It's nauseating already.

Most likely, yourn kid is NOT going to get a full ride to a D1 program. The odds are against it. Save your money for college and start worrying about his academics and less about his less than stellar lacrosse abilities.

If this does not apply to you; then please ignore, yet if the shoe fits; then consider alternative options other than worrying about high club/coach fees.

My sons team played at John Burns park today. Before us was a game with team Igloo. The team looked pretty wicked, they crushed an Express team, must have been 20-2 or something. Maybe they were different grades but regardless the Igloo team moved the ball as well as any young youth team I have seen. Someone told me it was their 3rd grade team, tough to believe the way they played that they were 3rd grade. Not trying to be controversial, just saying these young kids played some good lacrosse.

I have a simple question to ask the Board of OBLL, why would you have 7th and 8th graders inside at the Sports Hub and have the 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th Grades play a "TRUE" full field at Mitchell, FOD and BURNS. You should be ashamed of yourselves for doing this! Is it because the younger Express teams played on a full field? We all payed the same amount of money, but you put players that are twice the size of others on half of a field (width-wise). Don't tell me "luck of the draw". If you are going to run a league, invest your time and do it right. I won't argue that you are making money, unless you continue this shameful behavior. Do the right thing by the teams, do the right thing by the boys, do the right thing by the program. This was a 60 degree day and we are playing on a field that is "half" the width of the real field. Are you telling me that there was no "real" field available in all of the Town of Oyster Bay. Hmm? Once again, the board of OBLL should be ashamed. Simply put!!!!!

Well that was fast........they got destroyed plain and simple, like 16-1 or something. Ok everyone, pile on......Thanks for throwing this out there so everyone can chime in...I guess the humiliation on the field wasnt enough for you Mr Gladiator parent? You felt the need to come on here and try and disguise the fact that you were at the game yesterday? Yes you have a very good team and yes you killed an unprepared, unmotivated, poorly coached Jesters team who clearly were overmatched....Does that about cover it? You can now go about your day and feel good about yourself I guess.....nice job

It was embarrassing. As a Jesters parent, my apologies to the Gladiators. Jesters have been unprepared and lacked effort over the last month. No excuse, our coaches, parents and players need to get on the same page. We have a disease at the moment and need to find a quick and full remedy.

The Gladiators looked great, great coaching and player effort, compliments to them.

Jesters coaching and preparedness has been nonexistent for the last 5 weeks. Gladiators walked all over them (us). No excuse. No coaching, players without passion = failure.

An absolutely atrocious showing by the Jesters yesterday. Kudos to the Gladiators who are very well coached and have a talented group of kids, personally I think they can compete with any team at the age group. That being said, what happened yesterday was an absolute disgrace from a Jesters standpoint. It was the worst showing by a travel lacrosse team that I think I have ever seen. It was a complete failure of the organization, from the director on down. The Jesters organization took a huge step backwards yesterday. A few more showings like that and noone will want to play for that organization. As a Jesters parent I dont think I have ever been more humiliated since my son started playing lacrosse........
Posted By: Anonymous Re: 2013 Oyster Bay Lacrosse League - 04/22/13 02:30 PM
These types of showings have been common place for the Jesters teams for years. They have about 2 strong age groups and that is it and 2017 is not one of them.

There is a reason they had to have extra tryouts. Most of the strongest players at the original tryouts turned down the invite to play for them. The cost of the program went way up in the last 2 years and it really shouldn't have.

Uninformed response you have made-

the 2017 Black team did not have 2nd tryout, and does have potential and plenty of individual talent.

The coaches are killing this team.

Disagree...I have never been more humiliated....when my son first started playing he at least showed potential and there was an appreciation that every day he would improve. Watching yesterday I fear that he is going backwards, not because of his efforts or within his control. There are pieces of this team that are seriously broken. Get some committed coaching and let the good players play, the others can watch.

One thing I know for a fact is that my son and 2 of his friends tried out for and were selected for what they are now calling the 2017 Black team and all 3 decided to play for other teams. So that is at least 3 kids that turned down the invite and that is only the 3 that I know.

The team is comprised of some leftover kids from last years team as well as kids who left other travel teams. Spring league games have started if you havent noticed. I think the issue is whether or not we have time or not to correct the issues before tournaments start.

Jesters reputation has taken a hit over the years. They will put 24 to 26 kids on a team. That is too many. I know a few who took their kid off a team and the top wouldn't give back any money and would not return phone calls. There teams are not A caliber anymore. If you take money from people in this business you have to show people you care about their kid. Lax has become a big business here on Long Island.Parents want to see their kid win and become better lax players when u pay this type of money. Good Luck!!

I am a Jesters parent and i watched that Gladiator team absolutely dismantle our team yesterday. I personally think they would be competitive with the Turtles. As for 2018 Orange, I think they would handle them easily. They are big, strong, fast and very well coached.

How about you call the Jesters director and speak with him direct. Instaed of hiding behind a blog. I am sure all the coaches woke up sunday morning and said to each other lets lose this game. Call him now he is waiting for your phone call or you can stay behind your anonymous comments. See you at practice

The Jesters were a decent low priced organization with no fee for tryouts and very reasonable fees. Then 2 years ago they had their best ever team come in second at the nationals in Disney. Immediately after having that success the organization doubled all of the fees and thought of themselves as better than they are. The only problem is that they don't have good enough teams to think the way they do.

They have horrendous communication and take every penny they can get even if it means that there are 28 kids and 3 goalies on a fall league team.

they are running a business and you are a consumer. They only charge what you are willing to pay. You can send them a message if you don't like their product by going and spending you money somewhere else. that is the free enterprise systems folks. i sympathize as i have watched my kid who plays for a different club be on the losing end of some lopsided games too but give the kids credit. They tend to be more resilient than we realize sometimes and often more so than us. Summer tournaments don't kick in for real for another 6 weeks or more. Who knows this game may be the starting point for turning it around as i'm sure the kids, coaches and parents never want to go through something like that again.

We have played the Gladiators three times since the fall. We won by a goal in the fall, lost by 3 or 4 goals when we played them a month ago and got destroyed yesterday by 15 goals. Same players, same coaches. As for the other games we have played, it has been a mixed bag, some good, some bad like every team. I think the concern is that the team is not showing any signs of improvement.

8th grade career? And its us who have no idea what were talking about? The point is if you are a travel team at the 8th grade level and you lose by 15 goals to a team youve been competitive with all along, it extremely worrisome to say the least. Tournament season is around the corner in case you havent noticed...

Sorry about offending the program as a whole. I have been around for awhile in this circuit and u see some clubs getting worse and others flourishing. It is a reputation thing. And jesters lately has not. I hear parents not happy the past couple of years. I hope u have a great experience. Sorry more importantly your son.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: 2013 Oyster Bay Lacrosse League - 04/23/13 01:34 AM
It is always unfortunate, when a player/family experience is not what one wants. However, I felt it was important to agree with this post.

There are many reasons for bad experience, but I am not interested in getting in to a debate with anyone about their personal/family experiences as it pertains to a program.

I am only able to relate my own experience with the Jesters. My son is happy to be a Jester and play on the 2018 team. Our family experience with the program has been terrific. We are pleased with the commitment and dedication of the coaching staff and the leaders of the program. The Directors, as well as the Coaches, were personally involved in the voluntary winter workouts and worked to develop the kids. I have found the Coaches and the Directors to be approachable and supportive. My experiences do not match the attacks directed at them in this discussion thread.

Please keep in mind that the players we are talking about are young boys. They have good days and bad days. It's easy to forget that if they are Travel players, then they are playing on multiple teams: school ball, town ball, travel ball, etc. They have there good days and they have days were they are tired and are off.

Finally, a loss is not what defines players, coaches, teams, programs. What defines them is how they use the loss a learning tool and grow for the better from it.

Could not agree more. My son is new to Jesters this year,(not to travel lax) coaches and director have been great. Very dedicated to the boys. As a family over the years, our sons have played with some other Big, very well kown clubs, trust me the grass is not greener. Don't bash a whole organization and all it's teams, you have no idea what you're talking about. By the way, how many other teams do the Gladiators have? One, NONE? If a few key kids leave that team next year, ya know cause they're going to Cham or St A's....

The Jesters have a couple of good age groups with good coaching and great atmosphere. It's just that 2017 is not one of them. The director has decided over the last 2 years to get away from what built the program in exchange for a money grab!

if this is the way that many on 2017 felt why did you go back this year. By admission in your post this is not an overnight thing. There are many other clubs out there you could have gone to instead. My question is how do the kids on the team feel about this. Isn't that more important? other then a one sided Gladiators game which i'm sure was painful for them how has the rest of this year's experience been for them. ask your kid that then decoded to leave or stay

2019, "a couple of years ago" are you for real? What was your son playing in vitro. Stop, you sound so silly... I think your son must have been cut by the jesters. Not because of his play, but because they had to get rid of a cancer like you....

hey 2017 jesters coaches and directors, keep the kid and get rid of this parent!

Maybe you just don't have the same level of talent as Turtles, Terps, 91 Orange or Gladiators. That doesn't make it bad unless you decide to make it bad for your kid, which if he read any of this you surely would be doing. I'm sure there are other 8th grade clubs you can play and destroy to make you feel better. Call the director and ask him to schedule it for you. and still even more teams that you may have the same level of talent as and it will be competitive games.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: 2013 Oyster Bay Lacrosse League - 04/23/13 02:22 PM
Yes they were. And still much cheaper. The effort and availability to play more has been there. This is about giving kid opportunity to play where they can get better!

WOW - 4 whole pages devoted to the 2017 Jesters. I thought this was the OBLL thread. maybe this discussion should be moved to the jesters thread, though I must admit I have found the entire discussion quite entertaining.

My guess is this guys kid felt bad a good part of Sunday about this game and then went to school Monday and forgot all about it and is already looking forward to practice this week.

Also, travel lax has never been about my team your team. It's about the kids playing at or above there level and getting better. Sometimes in travel you lose BADLY, so what? Go out next week and play harder. Enough already.

I dont think anyone posted that the Gladiators were not better. They were in fact much better and looked very good. Moving forward I think they will be one of the best teams in the age group this summer. Our Jesters team played them tough a few weeks ago and then on Sunday they completed dominated. Theyre gonna be a tough out for anyone including Terps Black, True Blue and 91 Orange.

Love that term too. Just know people who have been involved with them and they didn't have good experiences. That's why I never had my kid play there. It is about the kids getting better and enjoying the experience. But if the club as a whole has taken a hit reputation wise and kids are not winning it does hurt their confidence. They are supposed to have A caliber teams at each age group and if parents see the losing they go nuts! So I know what I'm talking about tool. And a friend just informed me a coach picked up his whole team and left jesters for another club a couple of years ago. So what does that say?

So ......you don't have a kid on a team now or ever and you have some opinion based on what some guy told you the other day about what happened a couple of years ago? Wow

The parents seemed crazy until now!

Some people like it there, some people dont. If you do, congrats! You found a good place for your son. If not, better luck next year!

No he plays for one of the top clubs. And when we beat up teams the other parents complain why are they paying this money if we can't even compete in an A bracket. When they advertise they are an A team. That's a fact. Heard it with my own ears. And my father had heard it and says these parents are nuts! He can't believe what parents say. U pay this kind of money people want to win period. And if your a so called top club and u don't compete at the so called A bracket then don't advertise it.

You obviously know nothing about the club history on LI. Your top club (im guessing Express) was started when a certain someone left team LI to start it. Jesters was started by someone who left express with his team. 91 2018 Orange was part of express when the coach left and became a director at 91. The Lizards were formed by a parent who left off express. fl$ was started by the guy who left the Lizards. So what does that all mean? Nothing. Now shut your mouth and get back in your trailer GUY...

OBLL tries to accomodate a lot of coache's requestes for times, dates etc. As a result often there are no games, doubleheaders, playing the same team 2 weeks in a row etc. If OBLL decided to accomodate no requests you would have a game every week, you would forfeit many of them b/c you would have half your team at a town tournament, on vacation etc. OBLL juggles a lot of things and in my opinion does a decent job with it. You probably arent playing 2 weeks in a row b/c your coach requested you play certain dates.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: 2013 Oyster Bay Lacrosse League - 04/25/13 02:09 AM
I agree with the comment above. I think Mike C does a great job in trying to accommodate all teams. Next couple of weekends are communions if you live in the real world and teams will have conflicts. While we all would like set schedules not sure it would work with all the tournaments and other lax going on. Try assuming they are trying to do the right thing. Not as easy as you think. I have no ties to anyone just stating facts as I know them.i

If you can't commit your team to play a normal spring schedule than you shouldn't put them in the league!
Posted By: Anonymous Re: 2013 Oyster Bay Lacrosse League - 04/25/13 02:27 PM
The OBLL is very accommodating and does a decent job with trying to please all the teams. If you commit to play spring league you need to be flexible, think about next weekend when ProPlayer has their tournament, I am sure we will see teams playing later in the day or not playing that week. Works for us most of the time, sometimes it conflicts with dinner plans or visits to grandparents. Enjoy it while it lasts.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: 2013 Oyster Bay Lacrosse League - 04/25/13 04:22 PM
It's not a matter of committing to a normal spring schedule. A normal schedule would be fine. But it's not a normal schedule. A normal schedule would have set times every week so everyone knows who, when & where they are playing. Then parents could plan better instead of finding out Wednesday night or Thursday afternoon.

That was my point. People are defending the horrendous way the OBLL is run saying it benefits the teams needing special scheduling. I say it should be a regular schedule put out in 2-3 wk intervals and if teams can't make the games they shouldn't register.
People seem to forget the SPRING is the lacrosse season not the summer!

Are you a Jesters parent? Have you taken a poll of the parents and players about whether the like the organization. ? If you are not or havent, stop stirring the pot and let the coaches and director do their jobs and the kids play. It was one game. In the end the free market will determine if the Jesters organization is succesful at this or any age group.

Then call the Director and have it out with him. He invited you to do so. Some of us have kids on other teams in the jester organization and we're tired of hearing this. Many of us have come on here and stated we are happy with our teams, the Director, and the organization. You obviously have a beef of some sort. If you don't, then stop bad mouthing the organization. It is made up young men and boys who are very dedicated to the game. So when you bash the club, you bash the boys. Get it??? Some teams are better than others, get over it. No different than any other club out there.

Ok, now read slowly here. What you are calling the truth is your second hand rambling about what you overheard. Yet the people who's kids are in the organization and are happy with it, that's not true... WOW. See you're not speaking the truth about the whole organization, and yes you are bashing children who are trying to get better a sport they love. I guess you just can argue with stupid?

Gladiators finally won a game against a quality team and acted like they just won the NCAA finals.

Hard for the Terps to get up for team they repeatedly whipped previously. In addition to that, they haven't practiced in weeks, were missing 5 starters (had to use a 7th grade borrowed goalie, who did pretty well with the poor defensive showing) and you have a recipe for a loss.

Big deal.

Enjoy the moment of glory. It won't last. Not with the full team assembled.

Mr.Terp Black, nice way to BASH your sons defensive teammates and make excuses why your team lost. They bulk of your team was there, FACT! Our guys won because they been working hard and getting on the map of the "BIG" clubs! And tell your offense to help your defense and learn value the ball, grow up.

Pretty opinionated & insulting for a guy (or gal) with NO DOG IN THE FIGHT, interesting! I know there are many extremely talented players on the Terps Black team, a team that has been in a slump the past few weeks for sure. Im sure several will be ncaa recruits in a year or two, thats kinda what matters I guess.

No dog in the fight my A%S! Same Terp Black team that have victories over Trueblue in a Championship, Gladiators, Dukes, Breakers, Tri State black, Green Turtle and West Coast Stars.

So I think my son's team will be ok. So enough about my sons team, what team is your son on?

So the team that had so many players that they had to split into two teams and continues to have new recruits randomly show up every few weeks was short players?? And this same team that practiced several times a week through the Fall & Winter and played at least six tournaments before the Spring is complaining about not practicing the last few weeks?? Great stuff!

Wow. That was the most excuses I have ever seen in one sentence. God forbid a team loses a game because the other team plays better on a given day. Kids might actually improve and learn from that.

When the parents blame it on everything from the weather, motivation to win, goalie from different team (which you shouldn't do, and is very good goalie) you take away from the kids who went out and played hard.

They are 13 years old and will win and lose many more games and will forget most of the scores.

The parents.........they are unfortunately stuck with!

Seems to be a lot more important to them.

Best face off kid on LI at this age is on the Turtles. The face off kids on Terp and Glads i am sure will attest to that as well.

Both teams are quality teams and both will do very well through the summer tournament season. No reason to get to high or to low over an OBLL game. Does give both teams a measurement stick as to where they are at today and what they each need to work on.

Hard for the Terps to get up for team they repeatedly whipped previously. In addition to that, they haven't practiced in weeks, were missing 5 starters (had to use a 7th grade borrowed goalie, who did pretty well with the poor defensive showing) and you have a recipe for a loss.

Big deal.

Enjoy the moment of glory. It won't last. Not with the full team assembled.


WOW!!! How sad that you can dish it out after every win yet, for a loss you're all full of excuses!! As many people have posted during your "Gloating" sessions..."Any Given Sunday"

I agree, both the Terps and the Gladiators are very good teams. I have a son on another 2017 travel team and we have played both teams. Both teams will be a force to be reckoned with into the summer season. I dont understand all the bickering and jealousy. All the kids seem to get along and respect each other, maybe we should follow their example?

I was watching this game and I am a neutral observer(we had the following game on Sunday, but my som knows some boys on Express so we came early to watch) First of all they are both great teams that are playing higher than their grade or age would attest. The speed that both these teams play at is impressive. That said the Gladiators seemed more crisp on Sunday. They were consistent w/clears, ground balls, slides, passes etc. The Express less consistent overall espcially on ground balls and clears. It was a good game to watch, especially for my son so he can see what the next level is all about and what will be expected of him in the coming years. Again as I have posted before I do not think the boys really care about wins and losses 10 minutes after the game ends. Some of the parents however that is another story.

"Opinionated & insulting"? It really is annoying when parents come on here to gloat after their 13 year olds son team wins a game isnt it... Terp Black parents spent over a week gloating over a win @ the Shamrock Shootout! They actually started rankings, placing themselves above every team on LI because they won a fall tourny. Maybe you can see how obnoxious it is. Im sure there will be several NCAA recruits from many of these teams in the next couple, few years. & yes, you are right, "thats kinda what matters" Parents, bickering over who has the best 8th grade team is pathetic.

I agree its entertaining. My son is on a club team but he is quite a bit younger so I dont know anyone on the teams mentioned. I am on this post b/c its the OBLL and my son plays in the league. Something that strikes me as interesting is the comment that the team is in a slump. I have never heard or read of one of these top youth lax teams being in a slump. Seems reasonable right, any team can be in a slump or perhaps other teams just surpass teams in talent or through practice. It would seem that whoever wins the summer tournaments are the dominant teams, period. Slump, no slump, missing kids, too many kids, bad coaches, not enough practices, club charges too much, whatever. It all should get determined at the local summer tournaments. until then the trash talking is entertaining.

If TrueBlue does have a 4th grade team, has anyone played them or seen them at a game or tournament? I heard they were a good organization but havent heard anything about this team.

I believe that TB team is a 4th grade team. They won the 3/4 A bracket. Viper 3/4th grade (also a LI team) won the 3/4 B bracket.

I believe a TB team (not sure if they were 7th or 8th grade) lost in the 7/8 A championship. Viper 7/8th grade team lost in the 7/8 B championship.

Overall a good showing for what I think were the only two LI teams at the tourney. Most of the teams were from NJ and PA.

The True Blue 4th grade Team is a very good 4th grade Team you should get a game with them and find out for yourself instead of bashing a team you know nothing about and as far as the 8th grade Team goes they lost to Buck Select 5-4 in the finals which a team from outside of Philly very good
Posted By: Anonymous Re: 2013 Oyster Bay Lacrosse League - 05/02/13 03:20 PM
My son's team played a 4th grade True Blue team at the Shamrock Shootout. So yes, TB does have a 4th grade team.

This isn't a league, its a place for clube teams to get in a few games before the tourn season starts. Teams came enter into the league mid way, ask to play 2 or 3 games or the entire season. Calling it a league is a major overstatement. Its a bunch of guys who have the Town of Oyster Bay wrapped around their fingure to use the field and charge $2000 per teams to play the same team 2 or 3 times in running time games. PAL is what it is but at least it is way more organized

It's very surprising that Long Island doesn't have an actual spring outdoor lax league. A league where you know what other teams are in your age group and you get a schedule at least 2 weeks in advance.

It would be a cash cow if a league like this was started and standing were kept on the league website.

The PAL is really supposed to be that type of league. If you are in Nassau, that PAL league seems to be run really well. However, if you are unfortunate enough to be in Suffolk, your SOL. The Suffolk PAL lacrosse league is not quite as organized as Nassau, and unfortunately the President is not a very nice person and really has no interset in expanding and improving the program.

Many people come on here and complain about OBLL, I beleive the real complaint should be with your coach. As a coach of a team in the OBLL I can tell you that the Director of OBLL asked us which dates and times we wanted to play and has accomodated us. Every week the schedule comes on Tuesday or Wednesday and the Director allows the coaches to adjust the schedule before it is finalized. I believe the issue is most likely that your coach requested certain dates, times etc. and that has reuslted in some no-game weeks, some double headers and playing the same teams 2-3 times in order to accomodate your coach.

Division 1 in the Nassau PAL provides excellent competition in 5th and 6th grades.
You get 9 games against the "A" teams of towns like Garden City,Manhasset, Massapequa, Cold Spring Harbor, West Islip, 3 Village etc.

Up until last year the schedule used to be posted on the OBLL website around wednesday night and you were told to check again late friday night for revisions. That was better than how they handle it now. Don't know why it stopped for sure. But I've heard it's because people don't re-check and then if there game was changed they go to the wrong place at the wrong time. Then they cry...

I have to agree with the positive comments about the OBLL. This is our first time playing in it and we were asked whether we wanted double headers, which dates we wanted to play, what times were more convenient for us. Every request has been accomodated, including match ups. I am fine playing the same teams 2x, as long as they are close games. This league is all about getting 10 games in before the tournament season starts. The problem is with your coach or organization.

what teams for 2019 are playing in the oyster bay league? Is it still a week by week schedule. Was thinking about getting some boys together and call MC. Just wanted to know who was playing and if it is worth it
