I'm glad my son plays in this age group. It seems that this age level has less chest thumping parents saying how great their teams are, and how bad the other teams are.
Unfortunately, it seems with the amount of parents living vicariously thru their kids these days it probably won't last.

Amazingly, there now are over 20 travel clubs on L.I. to tryout for in this age group.
This will certainly reduce the number of players that will attend the various tryouts.

It will reduce the number of kids at each try out, and dilute the talent across many teams. I am not sure Long Island is going in the right direction. I like that there are so many choices for a kid to play, and it seems if you have the money, you can find a team to play for... BUT- the abundance of pay to play club teams are pulling players here and there and I think it is hurting the top teams and we are not going to be able to compete with top teams from other states that may draw talent from a region but only have 1-2 teams with the best talent from a large area.

OTOH- I like that lax is becoming accessible for all- and you can now go to any town in LI and see a bunch of kids walking with lax sticks.

How can you tell when tryouts haven't even happened yet. Players shift all the time so ask the same question in July.

We published updated Tryout Indexes on August 11th and August 20th to our Newsletter Subscribers. (If you are not currently subscribing to the Newsletter, why not?)

All of the latest tryouts still on offer are listed just above the scroll and also on the Tryouts Forum. While they are not all indexed by age group, they are all listed for your reference.

How many teams will Express and 91 have? 3 or 4? With all the travel teams there are now, I wonder if they will be to get people to pay big money to be on a "b" or "c" team like they have been able to in the past.

Re: Boys 2020 Fall 2013/Summer 2014 - 09/09/13 01:35 AM

From what I have been told, 91 will have 4 teams at 2020- that includes 1 Stampede team. This is what they had last year as well.

There are a lot of choices out there. Have to do your homework and identify what is important to your family and your child. Of course there are new teams available and club mergers that make the choice harder. With these news options, you're not going to know what you're into until it's too late to change. Hate to gamble with kids expeirence. It'd be nice if the clubs were more transparent and the tryouts really had no reserved spots - but we all know thats not the case.

For those who got lost in the shuffle and didn't get the invite for 2020 Express or fl$ "A" teams, I would look at True Blue if you live in Nassau or Legacy in Suffolk. TB won the Maverick "A" championship last year, and Legacy is getting the top players from 91 White and last year's Riptide teams. Maybe a couple of very good additions will get them close to Express A. Obviously, none of them can touch 91 Orange.

Legacy is also picking up 2 or 3 2020 terps and 1 or 2 crush and a handful of smithtown kids. With Zummo and Fiore coaching should be a very solid team

Where are you getting that information from? There's no way Crush players are going to quit to play for Legacy. Their parents egos couldn't handle it. Same probably goes for terps. Zummo will get some 91 white players. How many Smithtown players going to travel to Islip for practice?

Do you know where True Blue practices? Is it just a summer tourney team, or do they run all year round?

Re: Boys 2020 Fall 2013/Summer 2014 - 09/11/13 03:52 PM

Most of 91 White 2020 was at the 91 tryout. I don't think they are definitely going to Legacy.

None of those teams (Legacy or True Blue or fl$ for that matter) can come close to Express A - there are further away from Express A than Express A is from Crush.

you know this to be true, how? So then this is not a tryout, it sounds to be a hand picked team already. So no reason I should waste my time and bring my son to the tryouts.

I am sure no terps or 91A are going to legacy. This is all hype by legacy to increase the tryout turnout which I hear is meager so far.

Why do you think Legacy had to merge with riptide before the tryouts even occured?

Legacy will be a very good team this year. They have some real talent already committed, and several 91a and terps will be trying out. Should be interesting how it all plays out. The reason some kids want to leave teams like 91a and terps, is that they are not getting enough playing time. This does not mean that they are not excellent players, just that thay are not the connected dad's sons. Watch out!

Silly. I have seen the crush play at several different tournaments and they have alot of talent all around. They have a big lefty attackman that For His Age is by a mile the best kid I have ever seen play at that position and as far a I know doesnt play for any other team. If that kid is for rent, I would like to rent him for a couple of summer tournaments for our program along with a few other kids from the crush team.

Does this make you feel important that your 11 year old is on a good team? You must not have a lot going on. I think the people that boast the most about a certain team's success are usually the parents of kids that are not the top players.

I am pretty sure you did not excel in athletics, because if you did you would not boast about a team of 11 year olds.

Taking a couple kids off 91 B team some riptide kids and a couple express kids is NOT going to put you in that discussion of an A team. Its great you have a program you like and good coaching, its whats important but perspective. As far as other 2020's I must admit doubting the Crush but after seeing them this past summer they are at a completely different ability level, playing up too. Express are the next best and are also very talented after that I admit it is a pack of teams. All good for the game.

I like that we will have another reputable clu looking to build a AA program it will raise the bar everywhere. Already seem like it has begun

You are funny, kids grow and change at this age. Iv'e been through it twice before, and am now going through it again. I would agree that Crush at this particular time is the best on LI. As for other states, there is a lot of talent out there. As for Express A, very good team, but definately beatable. We will see what happens, you should never rule anyone out!

Talk about putting the cart before the Horse! Also Crush plays most tournaments off the Island out of state as well as winning the Nationals in Florida, hope that clears up there out of state ability. The express is very, very good,winning a ton of tournaments themselves, please slow down. Of course things change as kids get older but we are talking about the current state of 2020. Its all good for the sport but putting Legacy as an elite club right now is unfair to Tom.

Calm down...so far, all you've done is change the jerseys from Riptide to Legacy, and merge teams at on grade level. I think Legacy will grow to be a good program, but now you're putting it up there with 91 already. C'mon, give it some time...tryouts haven't even happened yet!

91A is tops, Terps beat everyone else other than 91A. Legacy is the next greatest thing. Before Legacy, it was Dune Dawgs, Tru Blue,fl$ etc....

Terps beat everyone else??? They were crying in Florida when they didn't even make it to the [lacrosse]'s semifinals! (Yes 91 won that) I have also seen 91 loose last summer a few times, they don't take it well either,but they do play up so we'll give them a pass. I saw the same thing happen to the Turtles. They are a lot like 91. They use to win everything. This past summer they had a tough time winning tournaments. Point is that things do change, and it will be fun to watch! The snobby parents create the negative atmosphere and promote bad behavior. Nobody knows what kind of team Legacy will be. They didn't even have tryouts yet. The point is that other teams have the potential to be competitive at a high level and that is great for LI lacrosse. I don't know why people are so negative about a team that does not even exist yet. Is it so threatening to others that some people are excited that a new team could have competitive potential?

Well you'll know on Saturday when they hold tryouts. However, without knowing anything other the speculative innuendo - I think Legacy will field some quality at s few different levels.

Older kids? just about every team in the u11 bracket (Dicks) was playing "up", so whats your excuse now? And I'm pretty sure that Terps didn't win "everything else" will do some research into which tourneys they participated in. Very good team, but many others better outside LI . The funny thing is that it really DOES NOT MATTER! a great player is a great player, whoever they play for. In the end, those kids will play in college. It will not be all the kids on the Terps and Crush, you'll see!

Stir the pot? What's the matter is the poor Terp's dad getting nervous? The lacrosse pot is meant to be "stirred" that's what makes it exciting. If putting people down makes you feel better about yourself, it's sad!

According to the LIE website, Terps won several championships, only issue I have is that they were all b touneys. I would give them more respect if they won touneys like lehigh laxfest, farmingdale laxfest and tristate. Not immpressive but nice for the boys. They are probably scared to face Crush.

The 91 and Express chest thumping is what I knew would eventually happen. I would tell these dads to look up the definition of the word Hubris. However, most of them have the demon that makes them live vicariously thru their kids and wouldn't understand it.

They won at First State and Madlax, and two more. Regardless they are a very good (top tier) 2020 team.

Why not? It sounds better than White??? New head coach may have wanted new name?

Who is the new head coach?
No new head coach. Same as last 2 years

When 91B plays in a tournament that is not run by 91, then we might see how they are. They hand pick their opponents.

Terps beat Looney's 2020 team by one to win Madlax. Crush beat Looney's by 3 to win Tri State. I've seen both teams play. Crush has a few more impact players. Both really good teams for their age.

Let's make this forum quiet again!! Good luck to all the boys playing the sport they love. As parents, lets not brag about a team and disparage another. The sport is growing so much that there is a place for everyone. The important thing is that they have fun, improve no matter the ability and build friendships. Enough with the negative coments and then trying to one up the previous post which was negative. A team that is on top may not be down the road and players who may not be on the top teams will be some day.

We should use our energy to promote "Long Island Lacrosse" When we travel out of state let's be proud of the long rich history of Long Island Lacrosse and try to live up to the traditions. How about we root for every Long Island team when we play out of state teams. The rest of the country is getting better and catching up to Long Island. When we play each other, be positive and if you happen to be on a team that is winning try to put yourself in the shoes of the other players,coaches and parents. Win with Class!!

This is not a zero sum gain. We can have many good teams and many good players. If one team is better than another that does not minimize the efforts of the players,coaches and parent on other teams.

Rosters are posted for team 91, it is interesting how crush carries 21 kids but the others have more, with stampede having the most, smells like a money grab. Some kids won't see the field much, but yay they made 91. Lemmings. Hurry and sign up before they give your spot away!

BOTC was supposed to carry the 2013 Skull and Bones Tournament in conjunction with No Limit Lacrosse. We do not believe that the tournament is being held this year.

You have no credibility. The Palm Beach goalie is a 2019 player, it says so on their website. So he is now a U13 player. 2020 Express Terps won Lehigh the year before and that tournament blows. The other tournaments they won and played strong competition and beat many older teams.

Cage,
When did "Be The Best" pop up on the board? I don't remember seeing them on the list last week or on the marquee informing the general population on try-outs.
If this was an invitation only team, why bother trying to hide it or put on the illusion of try-outs.

The club was added to the Long Island Clubs content island roughly three weeks back. The club never supplied BOTC with information regarding their tryout schedule. As a result, we have absolutely nothing to share about the program.

BOTC can get answers to your questions from any of our sponsoring tournaments, camps, clinics, showcases, or clubs. However, when you choose to patronize a tournament that is not part of the BOTC "Circle of Events", you are on your own.

You would have to ask the organizers of the tournament.

They all play 'up' because their kids should be in that grade (2019) by birthdate anyways. So it's really a level playing field when you get Crush vs a 2019 team. It cracks me up that everyone is amazed at how well Crush does against 2020 teams - of course they do well when they play kids who are generally a year younger than they are.

Oh without question - they setup their teams based on graduation year only while most clubs do it by graduation year/birthdate combination. I doubt their entire team is older but I know for a fact that many of them are.

Re: Boys 2020 Fall 2013/Summer 2014 - 10/15/13 02:31 PM

so how can they play in age based tournaments and still play at the younger age levels? example: how did they play in U11 age based tournaments this past year if they had older players. I can understand them getting by in grade based tounreys but this seems like inaccurate information. I think they just have some bigger kids who are very skilled and are of age. Give them the credit they deserve

Oh no, not this conversation again!! most tournaments, and ALL college recruiting goes by grad year. Thats just the way it is, we all should of held our kids back to get that edge. Not fair to kids taht thought they were playing by rules that don't exist!

Because you aren't required to submit proof of age in those tournaments, only a roster.

Here is an email that was sent to a prominent Long Island Lacrosse Club this summer:

"My son is interested in trying out for your club – his birthdate is 5/30/2001, however he is going into 6th grade so his grad year would be 2020 even though he could be in the 2019 class by birthdate. Would he be trying out for the 2019 teams or the 2020 teams?"

Here is the response that was received:

"Thanks for the email. Everything we do is by graduation year. So he would be trying out for the 2020 team.

Our philosophy is that these are the kids that they will be playing with and against throughout college. Furthermore, they will be recruited to colleges by their graduation year, not by their birthdate.

Hope that helps clear things up."

Here it comes, all the crying about how the crush kids are older. The secret is out, actually three of the Crush kids are actually college freshman that get flown in for tournaments. Stop the nonsense, EVERY LAST ONE OF THEM MORE THAN QUALIFY FOR AGE OR U BASED TOURNAMENTS (FACT) they are all 2020. I guess it makes total sense to believe a professional and college coach, someone who earns a living and supports his family coaching lax would cheat for a youth program. GET A LIFE.

As of now the CRUSH is just better because they happen to have more talented kids and get top level coaching. Those are the facts get over it and stop living through your kids, maybe actually take them to a clinic or 2. DOPES.

There are only 3 or 4 kids who matter on the Crush, and this coach you reference plays the entire game through them, so yes, anyone who would do that at this age would also bend the rules to his advantage.

I played in college, all 4 years. My freshman year we played with and against a lot of kids who were older than us, when i was senior we played with and against kids that were younger than us, a few older too but no one cared. That's how college works. -- AND HS TOO..

Someone should tell all the kids playing for the U15 Crabs, Breakers, FCA et al that they are wasting their time. Coaches only look at grad years. LOL

Oh no, not this conversation again!! most tournaments, and ALL college recruiting goes by grad year. Thats just the way it is, we all should of held our kids back to get that edge. Not fair to kids taht thought they were playing by rules that don't exist!

so let's just create 4-year age bracket teams and have 6th graders play against 3rd graders, and high school sophomores play against 7th graders. who do you think will dominate? think that's fair? once you get to college most kids have gone through puberty and can control how strong they are by working out and exercising. that doesn'w work at the younger ages, which is why almost all sports have age-based teams. do you think it's a coincidence that more often than not the "best" kids are also the oldest? This will all hopefully even itself out as the kids mature and get older but at the younger ages it makes a huge difference. That is a fact.

The question was, are ANY of the kids on Crush supposed to be in 7th grade?
That answer is yes. One of there best players is a hold back.
What great institution did you graduate that you call people dopes so freely?

So your argument is that since it's OK for an 18 yr old to play with a 21 yr old - it's OK for 12 possible 13 yr old to play with a 10/11 yr old. Because nothing like puberty has any impact at this age. Yes, I see your point - excellent argument.

I believe the comment was in regard to this:::
Our philosophy is that these are the kids that they will be playing with and against throughout college. Furthermore, they will be recruited to colleges by their graduation year, not by their birthdate.
No one thinks 3rd graders should play 6th graders...

There are kids on that team who are old enough to be in 7th grade but are playing for a 6th grade team. Facts are facts.

If it makes you feel good to win vs younger kids then great. Though I'm not sure what good it does for the older kids to be playing younger ones. If those were my kids and they were that good I'd be pushing them to play vs tougher opponents who were their age, or even older. But then they might not win all the time and then the parents wouldn't be able to live vicariously through their 6th (or 7th) graders... Oh, I get it now!

Is it possible there was/is a boy who was a part of the 2019 Grad year when he started school (maybe repeated 2nd grade - not due to grades or health) and is now in 2020.

And said boy is born after sept 1 2001.

They won at First State and Madlax, and two more. Regardless they are a very good (top tier) 2020 team.


Agreed, just not in the same league as Crush. Even 91b is right on there tail!

There is a 2020 Long Island Express team playing at the Indian Summer Tournament in Baltimore this Sunday. Is that the 2020 Terps or a different team? I know that the Terps are playing in Halloween Havoc so I'm guessing it's a different group?

I understand the charts, I understand he would be eligible, but he did not start his academic span as a 2020. Just so happens he is now.

So for some reason, parents decide to retain their child. Do you really feel it is your business, as to why a child is retained? If a child is eligible, there should be no conversation.

If said boy was born after 9/1/01 then he would be age eligible for 2020. If said boy was born between 9/1/00 and 8/31/01 then he would be age eligible for 2019 but not 2020.

It actually is my business when you snobs just can't play by the rules. In the end your holdback will just be average, so enjoy it now! And btw your cut off dates make no sense, because it doesn't work that way...but you should already know that as smart as your acting.

I guess it goes under:

Some people follow moral standards and just because they can, they don't always do.

While others say wth as long as you can bend the rules without breaking them you are ok.

That then follows those who call them out, and those that say it is none of your business. Unfortunately, the only way these get worked out is by policing our selves.

I am confused... based on the chart from Sage- any kid left back for one year would still be in the correct division. Why all the hate? And how is this unethical? Are coaches/teams/programs- not supposed to be following this guideline?

The point is that the top 2020 teams from 91 and and Express have players that are a year older, and some of their parents deny it constantly. They are not "cheating" at all with the rules as they are. If they would just say, "Yes, some of our players are supposed to be in 7th grade", I think that would stop a lot of this. It obviously gives them an advantage, and people would like for them to state the truth. The constant hollow denials are what keeps this going.

No, that's not correct - the players fall into the 2019 age guidelines as posted by Cage, however their parents play them in the 2020 age division. That is by definition cheating. They play them in that age group with the justification that they don't care what the age guidelines are - they only care what year they graduate.

A player that "is supposed to be in 7th grade" is usually not " a year older". Some of these kids with a late birthday (October or November) are only a month or too older than the Dec. 1st cut-off date. They play in 2020 division because that IS the year they will graduate and the class they will be playing lacrosse with! You think that's why these teams have an advantage?! Come on. The parents play them there because that's where they belong...they are 6th graders!

The parents play them there because that's where they belong...they are 6th graders!


Stop trying to justify. Bottom line...You are a CHEATER, don't worry, eventually it WILL catch up to you!

Except that is contrary to us lacrosse rules that a lot the "age based" ( not grade based) tourneys play. In your example 9.1 is the cut off with us lacrosse and most age based tournaments. In your example kids in other regions of the country are playing with 2019 kids even when they are in 2020 grad year due to 9.1 being the cut off.

Dec 1 is not the us lax cut off.

I think the point was, in many instances, the kids are still only a month or two apart in age...not a year older. The kids with the late birthdays that were " held back" are the ones that are close in age with many on their team. Being called "cheaters" in those instances sounds ridiculous.

They are CHEATERS. The cut off is the cut off, period. Even it's a day. Sadly, since it is not enforced some of you people make your own rules and cut off dates, then you try to justify it. Bottom line is you have an UNFAIR advantage, and if you think you don't, then why don't you play with your own age group??

How do you know if they are only a month or 2 apart? What if they are a January or Febuary birthday? Then they could be almost 2 years older than the kids they are playing.

Express parents have never made excuses when they lost to the Crush. They are the defending national champions and there is no shame in losing to them. Wait a few years when the crush kids can't get into college because they have no time to study and get good grades because all they do is play lacrosse 4 days a week all year.

How about going to birth year like other sports such as hockey . It would take all the nonsense out of it. Have ID cards issued that must be produced prior to the tournament. It would eliminate the different years that boys and girls start school in different states. Even if the parents want to hold back for academic purposes the sports advantage would not be available.

Almost as ridiculous as the accusations leveled against U based teams when these "held back" kids play against children the same age or younger but in a higher grade.

You are right, it does sound ridiculous, however, if you think most of these boys are a month or 2 apart is naive

Tournaments are starting to require Birth Certificates to be submitted with the rosters to verify that the players fall within the DOB requirements of the tournaments. The Dicks Tournament of Champions in Florida is requiring the Birth Certificates this year and so is the World Lacrosse Festival in Denver. What will be interesting to see is if 91 or Express still send their 2020 teams to these. If they do go and submit their real birth certificates I would assume they'd have to play in the next division/age group up...

Requiring age validation is not coming by accident. This has been front and center in many BOTC discussions with various tournament committees and US Lacrosse itself.

Depends on when the kids who are older are born and which division they are signed up in. This is from [lacrosse]'s site for this year:

In the youth divisions (U15, U13, U11), the age cutoffs are as follows:
U11: all players must have been born between 8/1/2001 and 9/30/2003
U13: all players must have been born between 8/1/1999 and 9/30/2001
U15: all players must have been born between 8/1/1997 and 9/30/1999

So if the older players are born before 8/1/2001 they are not eligible. Most school systems have age cutoffs that start on 9/1 - so 2020 would be 9/1/2001 - 8/31/2002 birth dates. 2021 would be 9/1/2002 - 8/31/2003. Those are the age groups that would be in the U11 bracket in Dicks.

Are the 2020 Terps playing in the U11 or U13 division? Same question goes for 91 Crush? Note that they are using the age breakdowns and groupings from the Spring/Summer of 2013 as that's when the teams qualified.

Dicks has not asked for birth certificates yet, just a down pay for registration. They are due in December. Should be interesting when they see that some teams might have had ineligible players last year in the tourneys where they qualified. They should get well ahead of this so they can invite other teams in those tourneys. Doing it last minute will be a mess. "If it is true that these clubs had older players" which I doubt is the case. I believe their kids fall in the birth date ranges posted for dicks.
When you are the best people are always trying to pick you apart. That is what is going on here. 2pm Saturday....terps 6, crush 5!

Schedule has changed. They gave Express an 11:15 game. If they make it to the final which is probable, that is scheduled for after 5:00pm. That's a long day for a fall tournament.
91A doesn't has their first game at 2:15 and plays the Jesters in their 3rd game. Not so long a day for them.
It's always funny to see what happens with the schedules for tournaments that the 91 guys run.

Good luck to all the kids playing this weekend, no matter what time or bracket or team you play for. Play hard and have some fun.. always fun to see all the Laxers out east picking pumpkins or apples in their uniforms. Enjoy the weekend and thank your parents for all they do for you. Ending the week on a positive note despite all of you. Good weekend to all!

Are you really just looking for something to complain about? Yes, Express has a longer day, but they also have a break between each game. Assuming Crush makes it into the finals, their last three games will be back to back. Yet I don't hear them complaining about the schedule.

Please stop. Their last game is against the Jesters. They will win that game by as many goals they want to.

Please stop. Their last game is against the Jesters. They will win that game by as many goals they want to.


So get this, you try out and make the 91 Crush Team. Well done! You pay your $1,600 tuition, come early to every practice and work hard only to play 1 minute of an important game in your first tournament of the fall season. I just don't get that......some kids never came off the field. Just not right.......way to go Coach!

91 does need a dose of humility, but Express not playing them in the final isn't going to do that.

Express didn't want to lose 2x in one day to their rival. I understand that, but they still should have played. I for one was excited to see that game. Both great teams but crush does seem to have an edge. great chemistry on that team between about 4-5 kids. The one left attack, I believe from Bay Shore is basically the whole team. He could commit to Duke right now. Face off strong, but had trouble winning against Express, and lost more than they won against Legacy. Very good Goalie, although it was hard to assess because not too many goals even got through. Best team in grade, yes for now, but the talent is not deep on that team, and the parents of the bench warmers, who are basically cheerleaders, do yourselves a favor and shut your mouths. You are an embarrassment to the entire lacrosse community.

It is so easy to blabber anonymously, isn't it. Perhaps there was a real good reason for the cheering yesterday. If you have been to another game, you would know that is not how they roll. As for Express... No gap closing. They wanted to go out on a high so they pulled a George Costanza and left content with the score from a warm up game. Now for the coach....He is the best of the best. People know what they are signing up for. Playing time and all. That is the parent/child decision.... Anything else???

If it was so important for Crush to Beat Express in the Championship, then why did they have them play them their first game. Both teams would have easily went undefeated and made it to the championship round. Team 91 and JS control the Crush schedule. Crush won 5-3. What's the big deal. For the Crush parent's comment in an earlier post. This was far from a from a bloodshed.

I completely agree that 91 gave their team an easier day, but an Express A team blowing off a final is very weak.

Expanding into NYC is getting worse? Population 8 million, that's a move most businesses strive for? You are a fool. A lot of teams on Long Island have NYC kids playing on them now, including Express and 91. Throw Chelsea Piers and Lacrosse into your google.

i think that is actually pretty smart. Have a development program in a market most other local teams are not recruiting from and see if you can develop a few kids that can move up to one of your top 3 teams in the future. Sounds like good business to me.

Why would it be an emmbarrasment to commit to one of the best academic and athletic schools in the country? I'd take such an offer for my son, after all it's only verbal. Kid i'm speaking of is better than many HS players, and would domintate on a JV team right now as a 6th grader. Mark my words, he will be committed to Duke, or somewhere similiar within 3 years! Just giving credit where credit is due!

"Hard to assess because not too many goals even go through"??? What does that mean. If shots didn't get through, I would assess that the goalies was very good without even seeing the game. How would a goal not get through? By definition a goal is a shot that did get in the cage.

Easy there! Crush's defense did not allow many shots to even reach the goal, which is what I meant about not get through. I'd like to see more games where the Goalie has to save goals. I understand that Crush only had one shut out that day. Express scored 3x and Legacy 2x on goalie.

2 years up?... is Express 2020 u11 eligible?

I thought 2020 was 6th grade and many boys on the team if not all are u13. Because there is no such thing as u12.

Yes you are correct. 6th graders would not qualify for u11 as per US lacrosse rules

It is what it is.... Find the appropriate tourney then if you want a victory; otherwise, you should be proud of the way the boys competed if you made it to the finals. You don't have to justify to anyone. You are U-13 now. Young, but U-13.

. You must be a crush mommy or daddy. I bet your son doesn't play much or is not allowed to shoot. Are you the parent who keeps all the stats for 11 year old lacrosse? Pathetic worrying about other teams. Go crawl back under your rock. I bet you did not excel in sports yourself.

They lost in the semis to a team they beat in the preliminary round, great game.

Good experience for the boys and they should be proud of the way they played.

Not good enough for a crush mommy or daddy. Their insecurity is showing and growing. What is with the crush mommies wearing those hideous 91 sweatshirts. Most likely 5 minute playing time per game t-shirt seekers.

Gotta love those Crush parents. Especially the ones who's kids never play. They pay their monies and follow JS wherever he goes. "just happy to be part of the team coach".
Pathetic. JS only cares about a select few. He doesn't even start his best face off kid on the team. He starts the other coaches son who needs to be in the spotlight., even though his light is dimming quickly. Keep focusing on your behind the back and between the leg shoots and see where that takes you in a few years.

Are you guys seriously still harping on this? Can we please move on- it is beyond pathetic at this point. I look forward to reading about all the 2020 teams, not just one, that a bunch of parents from other teams notice that Crush kids do not get equal playing time. Why do you care if it is not your kid on the bench? The message has been played out- move on.

Did any 2020 teams play this past week end? Any playing this up coming week end?

It is is only a matter of time and so many people on the Crush have burnt some many bridges that no matter how good your kid is people do not want to be around you . Think about that while you are running up the scores on people and shooting behind your back , because the first chance JS has to he will leave that team in a minute but that is ok you have a great waterboy and an assistant that has to have his kid the center of attention ... GOOD LUCK !!!!!!!

Crush is falling apart internally there are many people looking to jump ship and it is not the role players. Hopefully they work out there differences with the faceoff guys and they stay together but it is not looking like they can put there differences aside. I think you can see who the better faceoff kid is but he will never get the right shot because the father is the other coach and he has to be the center of attention. Too bad to waste that talent .

I am quite sure both Express and 91 were asked to move out/up. The only difference is only 91 did. I also believe this was done to benefit other teams (outside of 91 or Express) so they could play in the tournament.

By moving 1 team team up you make room for 2 teams (another 2019 and another 2020 team). If that was the case I say "Thank you" to Crush and the boys.

Why should a bunch of 11 year old kids have to "play up?" If Crush wants to play up then that's great and good luck. If they were playing in the 2020 division then Express wouldn't change a thing. It's a good rivalry. Some parents on Crush obviously take this too seriously. Lax is a great sport, let the kids enjoy themselves.

Seriously now. Those of you not on 91 CRUSH, why do you have the right to discuss what is going on internally, question our boys ages, and Ridicule every single move we make? Parents from CRUSH have been the quiet, more mature bunch on this forum. And believe me, it has been hard to ignore and not respond to the nonsense that stemmed from Havoc to present. It is all the outside questioning and judgement from other people that has gotten way out of control. Why do you care what CRUSH does? I bet your son would benefit from your care and concern towards him, rather than you waste your energy on someone else's business. IT SEEMS LIKE MANY OF YOU ARE JUST TRYING TO STIR THE POT AND CREAT NEGATIVE. Please mind you business, worry about your own child, and just simply, STOP.

Like anything else if you don't want to read the ridiculous criticism don't come on here! Everyone knows this site is the Wild Wild West.. most coaches from travel clubs periodically send out emails to stay away .. Maybe that's what you need to do!
Remember to the haters out there , you know they are Legit and doing something correct or you wouldn't be on here bashing !

I agree that they don't start their best face off kid. They are both good but the better one definitaly is not the starter. If I was him I would move on to a team that values him. I've seen both and the starter is always leaning over the ball, so his wins are mostly by cheating.

HAHAHAHAH I love the Express folks crying that a 10 year old beats them only because he "cheats" on face offs. Face it, you hide from playing CRUSH. You're doing it this weekend, just like when you took your ball and went home from HAVOC, afraid to play in a championship game.

Why do Express parents always say it's important to play for the Express so their kid can play with and against the top talent, and yet when in a championship game against the top talent, they run home??

It's funny that you think it's someone from Express. Realize that all teams can't stand the CRUSH parents/culture/coach. So stop hating on Express, yes, you beat them, but they are not afraid to play you and have closed the gap. They'll continue to improve but you'll still be the same jerkoff for years to come.

Why do Express parents always say it's important to play for the Express so their kid can play with and against the top talent, and yet when in a championship game against the top talent, they run home??


They played earlier in the day and Crush won 5-3. Why so upset? You have have your picture on the website. Get over it.

Even with cheating, kid doesn't do to well when he actually verses someone good. 2nd FO kid way more skilled, maybe daddy should face the truth and stop giving his son the spotlight he doesn't deserve!

REALLY ??? The Express team has NEVER beaten CRUSH and the best you can do is say our 2nd best faceoff guy is out there? So if we played our #2 we'd beat you even worse?

Unless you're the parent of one of the three key players on Crush you're not allowed to post on this website or talk about Crush for that matter.

You crush parents should realize that these are the comments that make people complain about you. Not a blanket statement about all crush parents. Just the ones making snide comments. Yes, you're the best. Blah, blah.

The ones making the snide comments are the parents of the bench warmers. How does it feel to drive to all these tournaments and watch your kids sit on the sidelines wondering if maybe he might get in for a couple minutes? Don't worry, he won't! I'm sure they have you in charge of the snack table so you can feel important. Sad for you!

Im not a Crush or Express parent, and I have often enjoyed watching both teams play other teams and each other, but I would have to agree that Crush has 2 midfielders and the left attackman that are the difference makers. There are a couple of other kids on Crush that are excellent solid players but not at the level of the top 3. I was watching one of the Crush games yesterday with a D1 college coach close friend of my mine
and all I can say is that for the grade and age the left attackman is off the charts . If you are the parent of the Crush left attackman congratulations, the future definately is bright.

The left attack man is off the charts in the 2020 division because he's older than all of the other kids… Congratulations! Their son does a great job against younger kids!

False. The big attack is age appropriate for 2020. One or two of the other guys started life as projected 2019s, but he is legit 2020. Amazing.

Re: Boys 2020 Fall 2013/Summer 2014 - 12/11/13 03:49 AM

Cage please, you must know by now the age of the big lefty attack on Crush. He is completely of age for 2020. Please stop this negative singling out of him, for goodness sake he is 11. Always played 2020 when he played town ball. Shame of it was he was good enough and should have played up due to skill and size but his town didn't believe in kids playing up and must play their age. Their loss was 91's gain. Furthering the point, when he did play PAL football he played his grade. One of the dead give always for suffolk players. He is grade legit. He is age legit. He has legit skills. He is a wonderful boy who works hard to get his skill where it is. I feel for as good as he is I see more to come. Please do not hate but if you get a chance to watch him, enjoy it.

He is very talented for his age. Yes off the charts. But don't be surprised when kids catch up. Sometimes early bloomers are not the superstars in high school. And that is a fact with many early bloomers. I'm not hating and saying this is what is going to happen but sometimes the biggest kids at that age level off as other kids start growing.

Be happy that LI is being represented and winning. Go back to your pool bar, have a drink and toast to yourself and how great YOU are.

2. Li express
3. Looneys 2020 orange
4. Fca national team
5. Palm Beach storm
6. Rising sons
7. Carolina cannons
8. Grand river ironmen
9. Red devil united
10. Crossfire
Some good talent down there. Crush is obviously farther ahead with their team at this point. Good luck to all this spring!

They are not affiliated with fl$ in any way. Not sure why that happens. BOC NEEDS TO FIX IT. They do have 2 teams I think a 2015 and a 2020. I heard they really don't have tryouts but recruit kids and keep the numbers to 21 so every kid gets plenty of playing time. Also heard they keep the teams together year after year. Heard coaches are very good with the kids and run a good program and that the teams are very good as well. Not sure why they have'nt expanded. Maybe less is better.

Its better to have a program where they have a 5 year gap between their only two teams and no tryouts?

Define better?

Sometimes when there are so many teams the Coaching gets watered down and less practice time due to lack of field space. Not that many good coaches out there and never enough fields.

Crabs will win this division. Many of their boy have been held back a year. They are much bigger and stronger than the average 6th grader. Crazy what some parents will do.

That is why allowing older kids to play down is all wrong. My son is in 5th grade (2021) and his birth date allows him to play fourth grade (2022). However he plays on a Sixth grade (2020) team. If 2019 kids play down he is going to be playing kids 2 years older then him. When I was young the best kids played up not down. What a disgrace that parents would even think of allowing a kid to play down.

The head coach of St. Anthony's and owner of Express should be very proud himself after what he did today. You are the head coach of a respected high school team, and you act like that at a 6th grade game? I guess when you bring in kids from your "A" team, and you still lose, it makes you a turn into a [lacrosse].

Agree 100%. Sneaking in kids from Express A to play B so you can (try to) win the 6th grade tournament is pathetic....not to mention unhelpful to the psyche and development of the B team kids.....Justice was served, though, as all that "brilliance" wasnt enough.

Legacy scrimmaged the Terps last week. Terps are a very solid team. They move the ball beautifuly. Legacy is not there yet, but have definately shown improvement from the fall. They have some very talented players. The boys and parents both enjoyed a fun night of lax with no drama!

No offence to Ravage, but they are not in this group. Leg Taz should be included. Really there are about 4 or 50 solid A teams, the B bracket is very large. If there weren't so many teams - probably there is enough higher skilled boys to make another A team.

Team LI is not a 2020 team. Almost half the boys are 2018. The 2 coaches sons are 2020 and they used to play on Crush.

Graduating years are not age groups, being in 8th grade doesn't make you older then a 7th grade student, you could be a young 8th grader or an older 7th grader, both the same age,when the parents decided on when to send them to school is the factor.

Yes, but this discussion is about 2020 or 6th grade. Putting the Team LI squad that played Crush in this discussion about 2020 teams is ridiculous.

What about the Crush kids that are "in 6th grade" but older than some of the 7th graders on TLI? Weren't those kids left back so they would look like star players when they are really playing down?

Agreed. TLI U13 has no place in a discussion of 2020 teams. They played Crush in the U13 A bracket at Lax Splash. Crush won. Neither team played up or down because both are age appropriate for the tournament by US Lacrosse rules. TLI did not play at Ocean City. The brackets and results are available on their website.

Team LI plays by age, not by grade. Age is the appropriate and fair way to play.

Wait till you crush people go to MD and play crabs and the rest of the MD clubs. they all play by grade but leave their children back a year. So your little crush kid that is age appropriate for his current grade will be playing against kids a year plus older...all of a sudden you will wake up and see the truth.

Once boys hit puberty, that year difference means a lot in terms of strength and speed.

Unless of course, your little crush team is made up of left back boys now...

Crush played the Crabs last weekend in the OC Beach Lax Tournament and beat them in the championship game. I think the score was 10-4
Look Team LI is not a bad team but why would your coach not to take face-offs in a championship game vs crush. Face-offs is part of the game, why should a team just be handed the ball. I can understand doing that in the early rounds but not in the finals.

I was at OC tournament w sons team watched Crush play Crabs in championship in ocean city. It was a blowout , and after being down 4 crabs also took the ball. Final in a short game was around 10-3 within their age there seems to still be a very significant gap. The AA part of this tournament in all grade levels was great

Crush is a special team. They are playing up again at Lax Fest. And why not, they win easily at their age group. Watched them play up at the Blatant, they don't even compete playing up, they win.

True Blue, Team Long Island, and Outlaws Black are all in same division of Big Time Shootout this weekend. Should give an indication of where Team Long Island stands; if True Blue deserves the #4 spot after Crush, Express and Legacy; and if Outlaws deserve to crack the top 10 of this age group. Division also has 6 New England teams and a Westchester team so the relative strength of Long Island teams will be shown.

Division also has 6 New England teams and a Westchester team so the relative strength of Long Island teams will be shown.


Not really, all the best LI travel teams will be at laxfest. BTS for pansies!

True Blue is better of the two by far, we have played them both.

If True Blue, Team LI or Outlaws wins BTS that would show the relative lack of strength of the out of state teams. By the same token, if an out of state team where to win LaxFest over Legacy and Express, that would show the quality of the out of state teams. I thought I would spell that out for you since I doubt you could figure it out on your own given the incredible wit shown in your put down of the BTS.

I know this tournament uses the rising grades for the teams, but why is a Connecticut team that is listed as U-13 on their website playing in the 2020 (rising 7th grade A) bracket? Team L.I. has it's U-13 in the rising 8th grade and U-12 in rising 7th grade appropriately.

U13 according to US Lacrosse guidelines covers basically rising 7th and 8th graders. If this team is exclusively rising 7th then they are in the proper bracket

Based on the games I have seen and the messages on this board, following is the current ranking of teams in the 2020 bracket:
1) 91 Crush
2) Express Terps
3) Legacy A
4) True Blue
5) fl$
6) 91 Titanium
7) Express Wolverines
8) Team Long Island
9) Igloo
10) Vipers
11) Jesters
12) Outlaws
13) Revenge
14) Tomahawks
Curious if anyone has any different fact based opinions (ie Titanium beat fl$ at a tournament etc) that would change these rankings. A bunch of the teams are playing this weekend at either LaxFest or BTS so could be much shifting come Monday.

Viper has lost to tomahawks in 1 or 2 goal games. They have also beaten Outlaw Black twice. Tough to rate Revenge as they are a combination of 91, Express, and True Blue players

Jesters Beat fl$ last weekend. Igloo is a 2021 team, granted they play up a lot but most of the teams on your list 1-7 beat them. "32 Lacrosse" is a very good team, a lot of express kids but still would beat most of the bottom half on your list.

I appreciate the intelligent feedback. fl$ does not seem to play many tournaments. Does anyone know if they have played any of these teams this year and, if so, what the results were?

Discounting prior results is exactly what you are doing. You have teams below teams that beat them easily!

Igloo while being a talented bunch of boys are not a 2020 team.
Is Revenge an actual team? From what I've seen it is comprised of kids on other travel teams that use this for fun "pick-up" games.
fl$ is way too high on the list considering what they did last weekend.
And there are a bunch of teams missing from the list? There are easily 25-30 LI club teams for 2020. At Forsberg there were 20.
Which teams have made it to the Championship games in the tourney's so far?

this past weekend was fl$'s first of four tournaments they will play in this season. They were 4-1 against generally weak competition with the loss coming against the Jesters. They will play LI LAX Fest, a tournament in Boston and a tournament in MD. There are two many kids on the team (24) bringing their overall strength lower. When they shortened their bench play improved. Long tail will make competign against top teams a tall order for them IMHO.

Is "shortened their bench" code for not playing many of the kids in close games? Not an fl$ parent, but I thought they didnt do that sort of thing.

No way are the 14 listed all A teams. Really just about 6 teams can truly be considered A (IMHO), the waters are deep in 2020, lots of teams.

Express NYC 2020 won the fl$ last week over the Jesters. Express NYC 2020 were in the Forsberg A bracket the week before and lost to the Express Wolverines(with a few Terps) by a handful of goals, and they were shut out by True Blue A 9-0. True Blue A beat the "enhanced" Wolverines in the Forsberg final. Legacy A beat True Blue and Express wolverines in JDRF. TB beat the Wolverines in JDRF. Legacy, TB and the Wolverines all beat Outlaws Black easily in JDRF.

7. Express W.
The rest are very similar.

You are correct in that...all lines rotated through and no specific specailty units (M/U, M/D, F/O) but length of shifts depending what lines were on were readily apparent...just listen for the grumbling.

Yes there are lots of other teams but I was trying to identify the top teams. If you (or anyone else) believes I am missing a solid team, please let me know who it is and who they have played/beaten on this list so I can know where to slot them. So far, it seems like I should drop Igloo (not a 2020 team), drop Revenge (pick up team), move fl$ down the list to maybe 11 or 12, add NYC Express somewhere around 8. This has been very helpful and I appreciate all the intelligent feedback.

Are you going to start handicapping these games, if I see something like Team 1 is giving a goal and a half to team 2 I may become more interested.

Revenge, Jesters and vipers. I think multiple times in the Spring league. I don't think any of the games were close.

Tomahawks beat Viper three times this year, and were 2-1 vs the Jesters twice should be ranked higher.

True and I agree it does mean nothing but I think LI Tomahawks beat them all in that league. Some of the teams they beat multiple times and were undefeated.

Anyone? Get a grip. They can play with any other B team. They struggled in a bracket with E3, Vipers, and the Jesters at JDRF. Please relax with hyperbole. So your offense is holding back your A level defense and goalie? Is your son a defenseman or the goalie?

fl$ is way too high on the list considering what they did last weekend.
And there are a bunch of teams missing from the list? There are easily 25-30 LI club teams for 2020. At Forsberg there were 20.
Which teams have made it to the Championship games in the tourney's so far?

Curious if anyone has any different fact based opinions (ie Titanium beat fl$ at a tournament etc) that would change these rankings. A bunch of the teams are playing this weekend at either LaxFest or BTS so could be much shifting come Monday.

Keep the Jesters towards the bottom, they couldn't win a B bracket and lost to 91's 3rd best 2020 team today. Team LI is better than the Vipers, Tomahawks, Jesters and the Outlaws. They are on the same level as the Express Wolverines.

I guess they were where they should be today, in the B bracket. Maybe change that grade to a B-.

Re: Boys 2020 Fall 2013/Summer 2014 - 06/23/14 01:09 PM

Including this weekend's results and all the intelligent feedback received, this is how I would now rank the 2020 teams:
1) 91 Crush
2) Express Terps
3) Legacy A
4) True Blue

5) Team Long Island
6) Express Wolverines
7) 91 Titanium
8) NYC Express

9) Jesters
10) Vipers
11) Outlaws
12) Tomahawks
13) fl$

I intentionally put the breaks in where I did as it it pretty clear that the top 4 will win most A brackets, the middle 4 will compete with the top 4, usually come up a little short but win tournaments when the top 4 aren't entered and the last 5 will win virtually any B bracket, compete against the middle 4 but usually come up short and struggle against the top 4.

I realize Titanium beat Legacy this weekend but based on the whole season of results, I still think this order is correct. Now if they were to do it again, that would make a statement. I still welcome all intelligent feedback especially results from games between teams on this list.

Titanium should be in top 4, which should be ranked as follows:

1. Express Terps
2. Team 91 Titanium
3. Legacy
4. True Blue

Might as well just list Crush at top of the thread every time (just to acknowledge their supremacy) but there's a huge gap between Crush and anyone else in this age group. I'd also say there's a decent gap between Terps and the other teams as well. Thought Legacy looked good this weekend, lots of talent there.

I intentionally put the breaks in where I did as it it pretty clear that the top 4 will win most A brackets, the middle 4 will compete with the top 4, usually come up a little short but win tournaments when the top 4 aren't entered and the last 5 will win virtually any B bracket, compete against the middle 4 but usually come up short and struggle against the top 4.

I realize Titanium beat Legacy this weekend but based on the whole season of results, I still think this order is correct. Now if they were to do it again, that would make a statement. I still welcome all intelligent feedback especially results from games between teams on this list.

The Tomahawks and Jesters should be switched.

Viper beat Tomahawks in playoffs and Jesters lost to Laxachusetts and Cyclones. Viper beat both those teams in pool play.

Viper should be grouped with Wolverines and Titanium. They are clearly above Tomahawks and Jesters.

Do you feel good about singling out a 12 year old kid? You are a tool.


That is not a nice thing to say. I'm from Legacy and our F/O kid is very good, and had a good day. I think the best F/O kids in the grade are Titanium (both), Legacy, Crush and Terps. They could go either way on any given day. It's always a fun competition, no need to be mean. All of those boys are great!

Titanium is very strong and Wolverines are struggling right now. Viper playing good ball but may not have the depth to move up that high.

They may be above the Tomahawks and Jesters, but they are not near the Wolverines and certainly not Titanium.
The Vipers played in the B bracket and against B and C level teams. It is a major difference than playing in the A bracket. I think it's great that a small group from L.I. won the bracket, but you are not being realistic. You would have had trouble winning a game in the A bracket.

7-3 vs. Warrior

This post must be from one of the idiot Titanium parents who were barking at the refs the entire game. There was really no comparison between the two teams, Terps would win 10 out of 10 times if they played. The score was 10-6 anyway and if face offs were 50/50 the Terps wouldn't LOSE.

I actually think Titanium is a very good team and if Crush wasn't above them they'd be an A team anywhere else. All the strong teams from LI were at LaxFest and Titanium made it to the finals against the Terps, but lost. So there are only two teams that can look down at Titanium - Crush (distant #1 AAAA team in the 2020 age group), and the Terps, who have beaten Titanium every time they've played.

Easy there, Terps are far above Titanium. Titanium beat Legacy, but Legacy was missing several players, and remember not too long ago beat them. Beat them again, and we can talk. BTW, what was the Terps/ Titanium score

Viper definitely a top 10 team in the 2020 class - recent changes improved the team - agree that there is not enough depth yet to compete with top 4-6 teams but there are at least 6 kids that are "A" players.

Thanks coach!! So your telling us the 91 refs at the 91 tournament wanted express to beat Titanium. It was 10-6 and not that close you had 1 6v6 goal a few unsettled goals and 1 emo goal.

Re: Boys 2020 Fall 2013/Summer 2014 - 06/23/14 06:53 PM

Every single one of the teams the ranking genius listed has at least a few LEGIT "A" players. The difference is how many each has. It's irrelevant anyway Constantly shifting sands and things will change-teams, players, from year to year, season to season and some times from week to week! I'm sure most of you express haters or crush haters would trade whatever jsersey you are wearing now for one of them--now anyway. chill out. I'm just happy with fl$ at 2-2 and only 4 tournaments and my summers generally free at this age...kids still getting training and this will ramp up... 0-4 may not have been able to take though...

Not part of either team but did watch the game. Terps looked much better than 91. They moved the ball well and worked well together. Not sure what you saw. 91 had a few garbage goals and a big attackman had one or two nice goals As far as going early on the faceoffs, you must be reacting to the Titanium coach. He screamed after every faceoff that the Terps kid jumped early. Did not see that. Terps kid was good and won most of the faceoffs. Someone said he was from Gardenn City. He played well.

Viper dad here. That's a bold claim. We are a good B team and the boys have come together because of their coach. They worked hard this weekend and deserved the win. We are not an A team and don't claim to be. Yes, we have some good players but please don't make statements like this.

Anyone that singles out a 12 year old in a negative way is a [lacrosse]. The tough guy slamming the 91 f/o kid should get his [lacrosse] kicked. That kid works as hard as the others and has a great competition with the other top f/o kids. Keep it positive.

Crush would consistently beat most or ALL local 2020 teams by 15 plus goals, except for maybe the 2020 Terps, and at this point in time are still somewhat further along in their development than the terps.

Agree 100% There is a top tier group that can play either way any given day/ref. Don't breed this type of hatred. Most of these boys are already friends, as it should be! Suspect there is a 91 parent behind this!

The reply I gave was based on an original statement on page 33 that listed Viper in the top 14 teams and said that teams 9 through 14 could win any B tournament. I'm not sure what statement you were upset about but I will still say that Viper would battle teams 7 through 14 on that chart.

Crush would consistently beat most or ALL local 2020 teams by 15 plus goals, except for maybe the 2020 Terps, and at this point in time are still somewhat further along in their development than the terps.


Crush beat Terps 22-0 at Dicks a few months ago


What type of person would let a team beat another (LI) team by 22 goals. Should be embarrased.


They're called Crush for a reason!

Very witty. Sportsmanship is still part of game. As they get older, college coaches won't be impressed when they shoot over their head and behind back when up 15 goals. Character is big part of what these coaches will be looking for as well as ability.

Let's stop the Crush/Terps banter. This is old news and Crush proved they're the much better team at [lacrosse]'s. Terps are clear #2 team on Long Island and the boys on both teams get along just fine.

I was never a Crush fan
I was never a fan of that coach
But after watching them play this weekend against a much bigger, stronger, older ( 2 to 3 yrs older ) so called 2019 Laxachusetts team I have to admire them. Those little guys were getting physically pounded that whole game and they never backed down. They stuck their nose down and battled in every situation of that game. We were all very impressed with the tenacity of which they played. They left that field feeling very proud of themselves, which is more then I can say for those cheating bast***s from Boston ( But that's another story ).
You might not always agree with how they do things but 1 thing is for sure. They come to play.
I am a Crush fan now.

Well written Crush Dad. No one disputes they are talented. Doesn't justify beating anyone 22 to 0. It's disgraceful.

Agree, the big 3 certainly held their own and it was a fantastic game, was good to watch the Crush defense get some action as they didn't win 90%+ of the face offs. Crush played with a ton of heart and didn't back down even though they were getting hit hard by a real 2019 team (all of the laxachusetts players were 7th graders so let's stop the hate).

Agree on the crush/terps banter and every other team as well. Many of the boys are classmates and teammates in other sports. The coaches get along. Enough of the insults. You all don't realize how trivial this will seem in a few years.Long Island has two teams that represent Long Island lacrosse well. Good luck to the terps and crush at Young Guns this weekend.

You are as [lacrosse]****, according to you there are only two teams that can represent LI?? Lets see what happens in a couple years when the kids start to commit. You might be surprised who gets the best offers! Yes trivial, I'll agree on that!

There are 2 divisions and they don't play each other in pool play. If the Terps can get there they may play each other in the playoffs.

Crush has played in 2019 bracket for awhile now and has played some real 2019 teams. They have also won them. Laxachusettes is a different breed of 2019. Express was close to their size and won. Not sure 91 is close to their size and still beat them the week prior. Not sure DD beats them. I see Crush facing them again and beating them. Maybe it's just me. Stinks to loose but is wasn't like they were out of it, it was a great game.

On a separate note as one has said beating 91white seems to make you an A team... Maybe beating Laxachusettes makes you AA.

Their offense is really impressive. I watched them for the first time at Lax Fest and they move the ball like a much older team. They have as very good defense as well.....but it is not on the same level and probably no better than Terps or any of the other top teams.

There are no rules about having guest players. Any team can do it, and it's really up to the paying parents on the team to be concerned with. You go to any tournament and you'll see teams with players wearing other clubs helmets, gloves, shorts...whatevers. Are these guest players sometimes a game changer - absolutely. But really guys, nobody is asking for a roster submission at the beginning of the year and a roster check at each tourney. Most id the times the boys just like to play with a friend who's on a different team because they are low on numbers - other times the club is looking to sandbag. Instead of complaining, address the problem with a solution and bring it up to USLacrosse.

Interesting perspective on the Crush 2020s - we are no fans of the team but did not realize how widespread the dislike is. At Beach Lax, an older group of 91 boys encountered a group of 2020 Crabs. When the older boys realized that the Crabs were set to play Crush in the Championship game, the 91 boys told the Crabs "Good Luck, we hope you beat them." The older kids said because they were jerks. Crush did win as they usually do but it was interesting to hear that their own club mates feel the same way most others do. They are talented young players but the attitude of the kids and the parents is the most negative we have seen in years of tournaments. Really a shame as they could be a real asset to the sport and demonstrate winning with grace and the art of sportsmanship but instead choose to behave in this fashion.

It starts from the top. His arrogance is astounding. It's weird because his brother who wore the number 91 is completely different.

Behave in what fashion? I honestly have not seen any kids play dirty or outwardly gloat- they are too busy congratulating their teammates at the end of each game. I'm not surprised the older kids wanted their younger counterparts to lose- it's not easy being beat or playing close games with a younger team. One thread that runs common throughout this board- any of the top winning teams get a whole lot of hate spewed at them. From 91, to Express, to Igloo to Team LI- top teams are torn to shreds and people often nitpick to find something to complain about. How about we be happy that LI produces these top teams, even if our kid doesn't happen to play for one if them. On any team there will be a sour grape or two, but that holds true for every team. So let's start being proud of the LI teams that are so successful that numerous out of state clubs know of them and their play.

Calling on the "tenacious turtles" when is coach rudy (angry little person) going to hang it up? His negative attitude and little man complex (for good reasons) is pathetic. Hang it up dope! you have destroyed the confidence of more children than you know. When the kids you coached were in 2ND grade you got away with the way you coached your team. That ship has sailed many years ago. Call it quits please you ego elf!

"Behave in what fashion"? …from the countless and consistent comments on this board about Crush and the behavior, it is not because they are great. We all acknowledge that but while being great parent and kids can also be humble and good sports and not an embarassment to the Island through behavior. Just in the last 12 months:
- behind the back shots when they are up by 10+
- parents verbally abusing kids on the other team while they are on the field
-parents telling their own players after the game "…what the f--- was that?" " what you did sucked" etc. Nice family environment.
- players using verbal intimidation to try to get into the other team's head
-Crush Moms consistently getting into it with other parents on the sideline.

The list goes on and on and this goes back for years of both being a spectator at their games and playing against them. They are not good sports.

No complaints about the other LI teams who excel or any other team that is fantastic in their age group as long as they represent in the spirit of the sport and don't embarass us all with their behavior. Point is just because you are #1 in your age group does not give you the right to be an idiot. They would do well to heed what so many are saying instead of always blaming it on something else or that people hate because they are good - too easy . As they get older the whole package becomes more important.

-Crush Moms consistently getting into it with other parents on the sideline.

The list goes on and on and this goes back for years of both being a spectator at their games and playing against them. They are not good sports.

No complaints about the other LI teams who excel or any other team that is fantastic in their age group as long as they represent in the spirit of the sport and don't embarass us all with their behavior. Point is just because you are #1 in your age group does not give you the right to be an idiot. They would do well to heed what so many are saying instead of always blaming it on something else or that people hate because they are good - too easy . As they get older the whole package becomes more important.

Sounds like your issue is really with parents- not really kids- as all kids talk smack and try to intimidate- even the 4th grade town teams! Shooting behind the back is becoming more and more common- but I'll give that to you. I think people should not bad mouth the players because you don't like the parents. And again- bad seeds on every team- I'm sure there are nice ones too. I just think the winning teams have become targets of hate from adults and that's sad. You may not have issues with other teams, but plenty of others see no issue bad mouthing Turtles, Igloo, Jesters etc. let kids be kids and let them handle one another on the field- parents should all show greater restraint- here and on the fields. Good luck too all for the rest of the season.

Please Crush did it last week. Out-sourced from Legacy. Then they whined last week when they got beat down by Laxachusettes because they had older players, and then they play this weekend in a 2020 bracket with how many hold-backs? Seems kind of hypocritical.

Not sure why you didn't, everyone else had to submit it- as did we- it's was on the site and there were some issues with kids out of state that didn't qualify age wise for their team. Maybe your club has your son's on file already. The tourney made this a big deal this year and I think it is great. I hope to see more tourneys do so.

Lots of good competition at the Young Guns tournament. Crush heads and shoulders above the 2020 competition, after them it's a toss up. This weekend showed that any of the other teams could win or lose any given game - Express beat Rising Sons, Rising Sons beat Crabs, Looney's beat Crabs, NH Tomahawks beat Looney's, Express beat Tomahawks...

Crush not bigger or faster than the other teams, but their hard work and tenacity/aggression pays off.

Crush is good for their age but we saw what happened when teams get physical with them at laxfest. They fold pretty quick , so the best way to beat them is to be physical if you can

Who cares how old any of them are. If they're in 7th grade, they can be any age, 11,12,13 even 14. Don't you people get it? It goes by grad year, period! You can keep bitching about it all you want but that is the bottom line. And just because a kid is older does not make him better. My son works extra hard and makes no excuses.

You're an idiot. You mean to say you would have no problem with your son playing a contact sport against a team where most of the kids are two feet taller and two years older, and their parents are teaching them to lie about their age? When really, you signed on to play one year up? Every other team has kids a similar size to yours except this one team who breads giants? No, that's not wrong at all. Clearly grade means nothing. Especially when all you people work the system and leave your kids back for sports. I am not knocking those left behind for academic reasons. It's all the other bozos. During years of puberty, these tournaments should be age based. This is too rough a sport. Yes, the older kid may "not be better" but he sure can wallop the crap out of the smaller kid. When you play age, you sort of know what you will get. When you play grade, you have no freaking clue. Saw an injury yesterday in MD where an age appropriate kid went against a kid 2 years older. What a disgrace. Play with kids your own size!!

Because he's not 12 and people like to stir the pot- even if he was- he's playing on a team of 12 yr olds so he'd be playing appropriately.

Not a 91 parent but I've watched "this kid" play a lot and he plays hard, is very talented and never backs down. Talking negatively about one kid is lame, especially since he's a starter on the top team in the 2020 age group. Find something else to discuss.

It's really sad. You "adults " bash a different kid every month or so. Is he the new flavor? U should be ashamed. I give these kids Dads credit for not hunting you down and kicking the shite out of you. But I guess they understand that you bashers are cowards and probobly are insecure with your own manhood. Funny thing is these boys that are insulted are some of the hardest workers and put in countless hours achieving their success.

Not a 91 parent but I've watched "this kid" play a lot and he plays hard, is very talented and never backs down. Talking negatively about one kid is lame, especially since he's a starter on the top team in the 2020 age group. Find something else to discuss.


I don't think anyone is bashing the kid and how hard he plays, just questioning why a kid that is the proper age for a 2020 team will be a 2022 graduate. Not the kid's fault, totally the parents. I guess they didn't think he was quite good enough to stay in that graduating year. What a horrible message to send to you kid. You aren't good enough, so we will hold you back not once, but twice... I actually feel sorry for him

You're an [lacrosse]. Not good enough for what? Do you know how many boys don't start school on time due to developmental, emotional, social or academic issues??? Obviously if he was held back they had a reason. If he just turned 11- which he did- he is one yr behind. Not unusual at all and not being held back for lax like other ms and hs kids. I think many people are so envious of this kid for his work ethic and hard work- and obvious success that they can't help but tear an 11 yr old apart. Only a very sorry and pathetic individual would make such assumptions and say something so stupid. I'm sure the kid is doing fine now- and is on par with his peers, like all the 4 yr olds that need a bit if extra time to get it all together before they start kindergarten.

Ashamed?? Are you serious? A kid going into 5th
Grade at the age of 12? Who cares if he is playing with 12 yr olds. He should be!!
The disgrace is he is going into 5th grade!!!
Sports aside, do you think that is right? Parents should be ashamed!
What does working hard in a sport have to do with the fact a 12 yr old is going into 5th grade!!!!!!!!!!

It is an age based tournament, so 2020s can play A or B - the point is that they are a very strong/above average 2020 team so should not be playing in a B division at a not very competitive tournament. Zingos, Buffalo Wild Wings, Irish Lacrosse in same division as LI Express Terps (not Wolverines, but Terps)? How much fun is that for any of the teams unless Terps just trying to go to Maryland to accumulate trophies against B teams? Look at the line up - they could probably walk away with the A bracket trophy but have registered for B. "A" bracket includes HoCo Club (even if it is their 2019 team, LIE will beat them),Club Blue, Roughriders.

Guys lets get a grip. Nobody is questioning a boy playing up, it's the kids playing down that people have an issue with. There is a thread devoted to Age Verification that has drawn a lot of attention. Parents are concerned for their children especially in the formative years playing against teams with boys that are older, bigger, stronger than those in the birth year (+ or - a month).
If the team from the start has that stance and the parents are OK with it - that's a different line. Most of us see a boy that is a full helmet above and question it. Some on stance of skill, most on stance of safety. A hit from a boy that has that much of a height difference is more likely to cause an injury. As parents of boys going through puberty, this is something we all need to be concerned with.

Stop saying he is left back two years, stop saying he is older than he is, stop judging parents decision for what they feel is a good academic choice. Give insult where it is due... When some jerko leaves their kid behind multiple years so that they will have the athletic advantage over kids rightfully that grad year. That, is selfish and stupid. Can we leave the kids out of this immature parental banter?

Problem is so many teams out of LI have many hold backs and as many stated- their kids are just bigger than our LI genes- so if they play up- there is always a safety factor. Hate to pick on one club but the 2019 and 2018 kids on Laxachusettes are men- don't know what they feed them- but they all seem to reach puberty at 10. It's nice to see a team play up to be competitive, but competition shouldn't be a priority over safety. I think they are stuck for the next 2 yrs in a limbo.

What did the rules of the tounament say? Can a player be on only one roster?
Doubt there is even tournament rules other then time and penalties served. Although unethical probably not illegal. They would not be the only teams that have done this.

Club lacrosse is un-policed because there aren't any universal tournament rules and even if tried to enforce them you would be considered a sour loser. Club lacrosse is about playing the highest level of competetion, blah blah.

The respective coaches or, more likely, the parents of these kids need to get a grip, really.....Telling a 6th grader that he is so amazing that teams are lining up to have him wear their jersey is twisted. You are not doing these kids any favors in the long run. Playing on Crush up and down the eastern seaboard in the best tournaments is not enough lax? This kind of stuff is why kids peak in sixth grade or give up the sport entirely....And if they do stick with it you end up with a kid whose head is way too big.

I see a hypocritical point of bashing another team last week for having a player fill in for an injury and then say what's the big deal when your kids play on another team. Fact is everyone justifies everything they do when it's their own team/kid doing it.

IM An Express parent, and My son is an older Express player. 2020 Express Terps played a very fast physical game. 91 and the Crush coaches should be thankful for that Lefty Attackman, the kid is totally legit and is a very tough match up , and accounted for 5 or 6 of the Crush goals. Many of the 91 Crush kids are smalland were physically over matched in my opinion, I have heard alot about the Crush and know the 2 teams have history. A couple good players on the Crush, but other than the Lefty attackma I wasn't overly impressed.

Lefty attackman didnt actually have 5 or 6 goals, more like 2 or 3. Most of the middies and attackman all scored so not just one player was the reason they won. Express played extremely physical but the crush's experience with older and very physical teams came in handy and played very physical themselves as well later in the game. Crush's newest fogo was extremely dominant throughout both days losing maybe 3-4 throughout the whole tournament. After seeing both these teams play for some time, i felt that express played extremely well in that game and crush didnt play to their full potential. I think if crush played 100% instead of the 70% they played at it would have been a much different game. Not trying to take anything away from express, but playing 100%, crush is head and shoulders better than every 2020 team and most 2019 teams. Also, after having seen the boston 2018 and 2019 teams play this weekend, id like to know why some 2018 boston players played down on the 2019 team in the LI Laxfest because the 2019 boston team i saw this weekend play in the 2019AA semi final and championship game was deffinately not the same as the one that came down to the island for laxfest.

I'll have a lot more to say tomorrow, but this was by far the most competitive game between the two best 2020 teams. The lefty attackman had 6 goals - fact. He's the difference maker. Nothing but good things to say about the Crush team but they had to fight for this win. Would be great if this was the future between these two.

I love the shout out to Laxachusetts.
We were discussing earlier how we just, don't, get it. Many Laxachusetts parents admit that as Bostonians, they play down. "It is just what we do here. Everyone does it". Where is the glory? The triumph? How do you applaud your child, while he is surely skilled, but playing kids younger? The parents cheered as their 13-15 year olds scored against 6th graders. And they did cheer loud and proud. It has taken some time.....but I still don't get it. Actually, it drives me a little nuts.... Please, I implore you....Do you have an answer Boston?

Who and what is a stat mom? Big lefty attackman was good. I did notice they took out the other tall attackman and replaced him with the small middie to give him a rest. Kid ever seemed to come off the field.

Excellent question! I'm sure it has a lot to do with them not wanting to lose. They know Looneys and Crabs are both better teams and could be at the tournament playing in the A division.Not fair to the true B teams.

Well so long as you say it is "aloud"... Like previous poster said, when the rules are questioned the immediate defense is to call names, claim sore losers or state your kid is no good. Pick a team, everyone else does.

Unfortunately, not tough enough, Crush score was double that of Express, was not a "close" game. But was fun to watch!


Was it really that fun for you Crush mommy? Your boys had no behind the back goals. What's up with that?

just jumping in. totally unbiased. no kid on either team. the game was very competitive and close. express was clearly the more physical team and had a couple of midfielders who were tough as nails. crush had the lefty attack, period. every trick and play crush threw at express was met with a tough hit or double. by my count crush had 3 man up goals and the rest was the attack kid. crush usually runs teams off the field but express matched that speed with those midfielders. crush is still the heavyweight champ but express is closing the gap. better hope that attack kid doesn't leave for duke or carolina too early!

Excellent question! I'm sure it has a lot to do with them not wanting to lose. They know Looneys and Crabs are both better teams and could be at the tournament playing in the A division.Not fair to the true B teams.


Crabs don't play in age-based tournaments because they stack their rosters with hold backs. Looney's hasn't beaten express in a tournament yet.

Competitive and close? Winning by 5 goals is not a close game. Lefty attack always good, but not his best game. Express had lots oftrouble gaining possession as well

It was a good game. Express was more physical, 91 played so-so- did not play their A game. 91 more fluid and skilled- score reflected that. Every team has top three players, but lefty attack is not the only kid to score.

In grad-year tournaments yes, but this is age-based so those clubs are not here. Unless these are all made-up teams full of all stars, I predict a 5-1 GF/GA ratio for the Terps this weekend.

It is not playing up? It is all the same bracket it is what we have been asking for; an age based tourney. Unfortunately it has lumped 2 years into one bracket. But do not call it playing up by playing A. A and B designate skill level not age - the age is the same for both.

Lets take it easy both teams from LI in the final is great. My younger son played game before for younger express team so I sat behind the benches. Both teams were very talented its sad parents come on here and fire back and forth. Teams were skilled,fast and athletic, my boy couldnt believe how good the teams were. For such a physical game the skill level was great. Seemed to me both teams lefty attackman 4 & 34 scored a bunch of goals for express and Crush as well as 22 on Crush had at least 3. Thought express midfield was impressive. Keep it Classy guys

Agree, let's stop the hate, game was awesome but parent antics before, during and now after the game are pathetic. These are two excellent teams comprised of kids that will go on to play at high levels.

Looneys and Crabs are not in Summer Sizzle. To the rude Express parent who is calling others "idiot" on this forum (again showing your true colors), LOOK at the schedule that came out awhile ago. You say your team is so great but are not willing to play in U13 A - in an AGE BASED tournament. The teams in U13A are some pure 2020 teams (6th grade just like you and not out here on forums bragging that they are right behind Crush in skill) and some mixed 6th & 7th grade teams and perhaps a handful of pure 7th grade teams who you should be able to handle as you are so good. Have fun running up the scores in pursuit of your Championship. You will be the ones embarassed when the scores are posted- the rest of the community already knows the truth. A true Champion plays competitively. One team in Maryland is known for holdbacks -plenty more here on the Island have holdbacks so stop with the old argument and play your team where it belongs.

So long as those kids are of a comparable skill level and are born after 8/31 and the 2002 kids are born before 8/31. Not perfect but it's what they have given us to work with.

Trying to translate grade-based teams to age-based tournaments opens up a huge loophole for things like this to happen and ruins the tournament experience for many of the teams. This tournament is already over for Rising Stars, Wild Wings, and Cannons Select. Aggregate score - Terps 50, the other three, 7.

This is no different than Crush going out of state and demolishing all of the little town teams.

Crush loses one game to an older Mass. team, so they replace their f/o kid with one borrowed from Legacy. Then they drop to 2020 ato face their own B team at NXT. I guess that loss really rocked them.

You have been misinformed, there are 4 kids on 2019 that are hold backs, that's it. #7 or 8 Middie. # 3 D pole an LSM and a goalie. Big program, big footprint. Good athletes, several that play Lax as second or third sport. No 15 year olds. Teams are selected from large pool for each tournament, they run a couple of plays, no set lines. Only one coach on sideline ,different coach each week. They have fun and enjoy each other's company.
To pit 13 yr olds against one another the way people talk about the crush/dd/wolves with no predictability to future outcome is lunacy.
I have seen first hand these overbearing parents ruin kid's lives. And frankly, this game is exploding, there are kids playing in states that have kids fill SEC football rosters. These coaching are starting to sniff in these places. Plus you get a coachable athlete without the screaming L I parent baggage.

They only have one very tough game in pool play, so they should make the final 4. Evolve and BBL are not very strong, and Team LI is certainly beatable.
Rising Sons will be tough in their last game. They should be at least 3-1 in pool play.
I bet they end up playing Crush in the semis.

Titanium is one of the top 6 2020 teams on Long Island and rightfully plays in A brackets in most tournaments. If you want to say 91 shouldn't send Crush and Titanium to the same tournament that is fair but Titanium is properly placed. Another question on division placement is the Outlaws Black. They are on par with the Jesters who are in the B bracket and are clearly weaker than the Crush, Titanium and Team Long Island not to mention Bucks, Looneys and Mesa Fever. In the B bracket they would be contenders. In the A bracket they are cannon fodder. I just hope the players don't get too demoralized from being improperly placed.

Again, LIE!
Neither of those boys repeated a grade! The face-off kid likely belongs in 2019, but only by a few days, look at his size. He is small and will be lucky to break 5'5". If his parents decided before he went into kindergarten to hold him because of a close cut off birthday that is their proogitive.
This is why AGE based tournaments are important!

Although your opinion is respected , please don't mistake yelling plays and direction from the sideline , screaming at kid in a negative way. He doesn't put his kids down or make them feel like they failed. In my opinion he's one of the best coaches I've seen in youth lacrosse. My kid is fortunate to have him as his coach.

I feel exactly the same way. My son loves him. He respects him. He never puts the kids down. He builds their confidence. He is fun but firm. They have a great time but teaches. That is what is all about.

The approximate DOB is correct, late 2001, so he technically should be 2019. Had the parents chosen to start him late it would have been their prerogative. They didn't. They chose to have him repeat 5th grade so that he would be eligible to play with 2020 CRUSH and arguably get the best coaching/training available to any kid. No problem here, parents choosing what they feel is the best path for their talented son. The problems arise when ill-informed CRUSH mommies and daddies deny that their team has hold-backs and red-shirts just like their competitors. Stop being hypocritical and blaming comparitive age every time you fail to blow an opponent out by what you benchwarmer parents deem to be a sufficient amount. Yes he's talented. Yes he's a great kid. Yes he is U12 age eligible. Yes he red-shirted 5th grade.

Perhaps you're just jealous that your kid can't hang with boys like that.


Again, LIE!
Neither of those boys repeated a grade! The face-off kid likely belongs in 2019, but only by a few days, look at his size. He is small and will be lucky to break 5'5". If his parents decided before he went into kindergarten to hold him because of a close cut off birthday that is their proogitive.

Okay- do not really care one way or another- but isn't there a big difference between one kid held back by days and a team with over a handful of kids held back 1-2 years. Even if a MA or PA, MD kid gets held back one year- they can be feasibly 18 mo- 2 years older than the youngest LI 2020 kid, just because of different school start dates, making playing a 2019 team dangerous in some ways. It sucks to be a team that cannot find a fit- they play 2020 tourneys they have less competition. They play 2019, they may have a safety issue. Their players are small for 2020.

Every 2020 team is in the same position - Crush kids are no smaller than their counterparts on other 2020 teams. Except for the handful of teams (equally represented by LI, MD an PA) who make it their goal to have an inordinate amount of holdbacks, every good 2020 team is dealing with the same problem of being at the younger end of the age bracket and looking for competition without encountering huge size differences as their kids have not yet hit puberty while those at the upper end of the bracket have. Believe it or not, Crush is not the center of the 2020 universe - we all acknowledge they are currently the most skilled team but enough of the drama about how they are really even better because they are smaller, younger etc.

Crush parents, and coaches have been doing this for years. Priding themselves on how they are above all other 2020 teams. They should be. Facts are facts,kids that are a whole year older(not days or months as these people are claiming)should play better. Parents who hold their kids back strictly to have the sports advantage think they are fooling everyone. We are on to their game. Sure these kids stand out now amongst those who are a year or more younger but they will all eventually catch-up. My advise, watch these hold backs when they play with kids the same age as them on the other teams they are "dedicated" to. Difficult to stand out as a "star" player when you are mixed in amongst those your own age. I bet Crush wouldn't get such a bad rep if they wouldn't be so quick to call others out on the exact same thing they do on their own team.

Josh (Titanium coach) is a great coach who makes the game fun while teaching the kids discipline and increasing the boys lax IQ. His yelling is informative and not negative. He is BY FAR the best travel coach our son has ever had.

Yes, U11 in Dec2013/Jan2014, according to the National's rules. With Birth Certificates. And Real ones too! People are looking for something to talk about. Food for thought-Boston Lax, you should go to Nationals. Let's see how you do. Would be interesting. Would love to see those boys play age. LOL

Or maybe you spend a lot of time thinking you are posting to adults but instead you are arguing with children- the ones that know their real ages and know they just qualified U11 this past December and they are tired of people tearing them apart. Maybe every team should have rosters posted because right now Express and Crush are the only 2020 teams that we know qualified in Dec making their pkayers all age appropriate.

Every 2020 team just played alot of U11- they were all in U11 last year. And there were quite a few others invited to Nationals in addition to Express and 2020 who simply chose not to go - not every parent of an 11 yo feels that an expensive trip to Nationals is in their best interest in the grand scheme of things. Depending on the tournament, you get the first, second and third place getting invites - our town team got invited as U11s and they are not National material. Going to Nationals is a choice. Again, Crush is a great team but enough with trying to make yourselfs look even better - your parents do it constantly on the boards, on the sidelines etc. It is no wonder others in the community are tired of the Crush story instead of having pride in a local team. Behavior folks - yours and your players. Some 2020 teams had some player movement when they moved up to U13 this summer (leaving some of their U11 team mates behind) as most clubs did not play grade based for U11 and only switched when they moved to U13 - Crush actually seeemd to be in a better position with a consistent team as they were grade based in U11 but the point is that all 2020s are in the same boat. Not just Crush.

"U11 in Dec2013/Jan2014, according to the National's rules. "

To offer clarity , they do not have to be U11 in December/January when Dicks is actually played. They had to be U11 in the qualifying tournaments the prior summer using the usual age based brackets every team is subject to that prior year-nothing special. It is great Crush won in Florida and their parents that committed to spend all that money for the U11s but keep it in perspective - they are not really "Nationals" in the true sense of other sports - it is a promoter who set up a self feeding, brilliant system. It becomes clearer with the fact that most older ,better clubs do not play in Dicks despite winning in one or more of the qualifying tournaments. The NDP system actually "broke" the few townie travel tournaments because top Club teams saw some of the purely recreation tournaments 2-3 years ago as quick entrance to the Dicks National tournament by going and beating up on local teams. Example - Beach Lax in Md was the end of season tournament for the Baltimore area clubs until promoter signed on to be a Dicks qualifying tournament and now it is mostly clubs. The teams from NY all went down and literally beat up town rec teams to get a slot at the tourney and then claim to be champions.

The point was not how good Express and Crush are- but rather they did go to TOC and had to prove their ages. Obviously there are many teams invited and earn an invite or get a waiver, but only those that went can actually say their kids all qualified by age. There are many deserving teams out there, but until birth certificates are required at other tourneys, only those that attended TOC can say their roster is grade appropriate and for LI 2020- it was Express and Crush. That is the point.

Seriously, no comparison. Turtles had/have much more depth in their roster. They could be missing 3-4 kids and not miss a beat at a tournament Crush is built around 3-4 kids. In close games a handful of kids never see the field. Crush rests their middies at attack so that they stay on the field. Attack parents seem to be OK with that. Really? Keep dreaming Crush mommy's and daddy's.

USL Guidelines:

Leagues and associations should organize competition by age, and consider physical, cognitive, and emotional maturity when grouping players. For leagues or associations in which some local programs choose to organize their teams by grade, those teams should play in the age division determined by the oldest player on their roster.

I am going to tell you right now, that there are kids on Crush that will play lacrosse in college and there are kids on Crush that will not, just like plenty of other 2020 teams out there. If you really think that every kid on that team is going to play in college, you are totally delusional. Or maybe you have been brain washed into thinking that because the team is dominant at 12 years old, that means something! LOL what that means is they have received good coaching and have practiced more than others. There are kids in the 2020 age group that have not even picked up a stick yet that will be total stud lacrosse players in the next few years. College coaches are looking for stud athletes, and from the few times I have seen Crush play, they are well coached, but I would NOT say all of those kids are outstanding athletes. Time will tell and FYI no one will care what team you played for or what your record was when you were 12

Keep telling yourself that! The majority of Crush is going D1 (top tier). You will see, Ive been though it twice and this team will be #1 in commitments come two years (like Crabs, Green Turtles,etc.). My son does not even play for them, but I am a fan! Not implying that there are many other stand out players that will definitely be getting scholarships, including my son, but you can't deny the dominance of that team! Express Terps will be right behind, then a few here and there.

I feel bad for any parent of a 12 year old kid that is even thinking about where their kid is going to play lacrosse in college! Come on now, at 12 you have NO IDEA what you want to study or where you want to go to school. Much less, if you want to make the commitment to play a sport in college. There are clearly LOTS of crazy people out there...

I feel bad for any parent of a 12 year old kid that is even thinking about where their kid is going to play lacrosse in college! Come on now, at 12 you have NO IDEA what you want to study or where you want to go to school. Much less, if you want to make the commitment to play a sport in college. There are clearly LOTS of crazy people out there...


You are so wrong! My son already has his top 5 picked. And no I'm not kidding. He is 100% commited and we are here to support that.

His choices went something like this....

1-Hopkins, cause my Dad said so.
2-Duke, cause a Blue Devil is cool.
3-Notre Dame, cause that little Irish guy is cool.
4-Alany, cause pony tails RULE.
5-Dener, cause their helmets are cool and my Dad drinks lots and lots of Coors beer and that's from Colorado so I think that's cool.

Way to support juniors choices at 12 years old.

Hahahahahahahahahahahaha

You must be one of the Crush parents hoping to have their son commit to a college.


Hoping?

Yes, hoping. Better get some good grades and SAT scores to go with those stick skills.


They can get into Cuse, Hopkins or Maryland with average grades if they are top players. Just won't be able to look at Duke, UVA or the IVYs as options.

Why are you entertaining a discussion about college choices for 12 year old boys? Let them figure out how to shave and get to 2nd base first. Lol

Do the height test as well. Add 5 inches to mom's height add it to yours and divide by 2. That's your boy give or take an inch. Good luck! Because if your under 5' 8' he better be lightening fast for D1.

You are not serious, please tell me you have told your kid that it is OK to not do well in school, because you are a "stud" lacrosse player. Holy cow, are you in for a ride awakening when your boy perfects the saying "do you want fries with that". But hey, when I was little you should have seen how awesome my team was!!

You need better than average grades for those schools. Don't forget SATs. I have seen great/top players over the years with average SATs and better then average grades not get into top or even lower level schools. The grades dictate what school you go to. Lax may bump you a little like a B- average MAY get you into a B AVERAGE school but it won't get you into a B+ school.Remember lacrosse is not a money maker for schools. Even Hofstra wants better than average grades for a great lax player. WAKE UP PARENTS.

No one is advocating for their kid not to focus on grades, but in all honesty- just like not every kid is an athlete- not every kid is a student either. Over my years in teaching, I have seen students become successful because they were smart, or athletic, or musically gifted or a superb artist. It is a rare student that has it all, but those are the ones that the Ivy schools want- the ones that have it all. There is a school for everyone and no one should put down any school and again, no one is advocating for your kid not to try in school. I do think if parents put a quarter of the money and time into tutoring as they do into training their kids, our kids would be doing a whole lot better on their finals and regents - just an observation. GL to all the kids as they go through their MS years, - because many will be taking regents before they even graduate MS and it could impact their future. These are the years to get serious and put some extra time into studies- especially with all the early recruiting.

My son has the lax skills and grades (A+ in everything) to get into any school of his choice at this point. All he needs to do is maintain. As long as this is what he wants, and you can not "force" my son to do something he does not want to. We will be there with all the support he needs. We will make the sacrifices needed for his success. I am fully aware that there are no guarantees, and that things can change. Right now, the sky's the limit!

Seriously, no comparison. Turtles had/have much more depth in their roster. They could be missing 3-4 kids and not miss a beat at a tournament Crush is built around 3-4 kids. In close games a handful of kids never see the field. Crush rests their middies at attack so that they stay on the field. Attack parents seem to be OK with that. Really? Keep dreaming Crush mommy's and daddy's.


Turtles never beat teams the way Crush does at this age. Sorry nice try though. You need to stop being so jealous and negative. Just look at the facts!


If you're not a parent of #34, #2, or #29, there's nothing to be jealous about. Crush is totally reliant on these three players (and the specialist face off kid they borrow from Smithtown/Legacy/Sweet Lax, etc.). Excellent team, but take away #34 and you'd be lucky to beat the top teams.

Great post. Agreed. Enjoy your sons success and some good luck to go along with all the hard work he has and will continue put in. There are a number of tremendous athlests on the crush team. (fl$ parent) You get out what you put in and we practice and play maybe a quarter of what crush and express do. I expect that to ramp up with age though.

A+ in everything!! Wow you must be proud he did so well in 6th grade. Let me say that again...6th grade. Hate to say it but middle school and highschool is a whole new ball game academic wise. Let the kid be a kid. You sound ridiculous talking about these kind of things.

Give it a break- not too many kids are A+ students and athletes at a high level- even in 6th grade. Many MS kids are already accelerated and are taking 7th grade classes so that they can take regents in 8th grade. This dad should be proud. Obviously his kid has smarts and good work habits which is more than half the battle...and I am not the kid' s dad or his wife!

It's good to know that no one should waste their money to try out for this team..They can still stick with the organization and pay the tryout fee but remember you will always be second fiddle or the ugly step child...Maybe it would be better to look at other organizations..Plenty out there and cheaper for tryouts.

Be proud dad/mom. You need to lay the foundation and it seems you have.

Many of the student athletes these days especially in lacrosse are those students with the higher marks. There is a thread stating there are a few towns which 2019 kids have already taken their first regents; some in both Math and Science. That means they will have fulfilled their NYS regents requirement by the end of Freshman year (if that means anything by then).

Think of it this way, Colleges will have a great resume to look at coming out of freshman year; the same resume as some Jr's. It is apparent that athletics isn't the only thing getting accelerated in some houses. Sorry your not in the know.

I guess the best lacrosse players are also the smartest in their class and the not so smart ones play football:)

If you don't position yourself with a respected club team and good grades going into your freshman year, getting recruited will be a hek of a lot harder, trust me, I'm only giving this advice from experience! Do with it what you want.

This is taken from the website of a group that runs youth lacrosse tournaments. How easy would it be if US Lacrosse just adopted and enforced this set of rules?

Roster Rules

1. No player may compete, or be rostered, on more than one team during the tournament.
2. US Lacrosse age guidelines will be used for the U11, U13 & U15 divisions. Age eligible High School players may compete in the U15 A division. They are ineligible to compete in the U15 B division.
3. U15 players must have been born after August 31, 1998.
4. U13 players must have be born after August 31, 2000.
5. U11 players must have been born after August 31, 2002.
6. U9 players must have been born after August 31, 2004.
7. Placement in the Rising 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th Grade divisions will be dictated by the highest grade of any player on the team.
8. No High School graduates are eligible.
9. Any team in violation of the above roster rules will forfeit all games in which the ineligible player has participated and forfeit any opportunity to advance to the playoffs.

I think this is a good start and I think this is what [lacrosse]'s TOC said- maybe even taken from their site, however- I still think the u11, U13, u15 is too far spread. I am not saying they have to follow the hockey standard of year born- maybe a 15 month spread would be more appropriate. I think play would be much more consistent and safe with better rules et in place. I am on the fence about playing on more than one team though- as long as the kid is rostered on both teams as a player, and not just a guest, I do not have a problem with that. It appears a lot of kids play for their town and their club team, especially in HS- and having to choose a team makes things difficult, especially with subtle threats about future playing time.

I think playing for your town and travel club is fine, what isn't fine is playing on more than one travel team. That isn't allowed in hockey or soccer, two sports that get it right with respect to age regulations and being well organized youth sports (leagues, tournaments, regional/national tournaments etc.). Pick a team, stick with those players and stop the nonsense of bringing in guest players.

Why? Because you said so? Many times club and travel play in the same tournaments. I agree that kids should only play one division. No switching from A to B (for clubs), but playing up should be ok. Sometimes clubs are short players and need to bring in extra kids. Sometimes town plays B and club plays A. That should be Ok too. There is really no conflict then.

Yes, purely because I said so. I am the one and only almighty LaxGod who makes proclamations that shall not be disputed. I am the only one who makes reasonable, well though-out statements on this site and all those that shall challenge me will burn in Baltimore [lacrosse]!

what I don't understand is how a club team can be short players for any given tournament. You try out, make the team and commit to play on that team and whatever tournaments they play in. Peiord. Why do some people have the need to play for more than 1 club team? If you are not happy with a team you are on, move on next season and find a better fit. But to play for more than 1 club team is ridiculous. Besides the fact that the boys will be burnt out by the time they play Varsity, the teams they play on get accused of loading their roster and cheating when "guest" players play. No team should ever be short players for any tournament if they have a roster of 20+ players. Commit to one team and play your heart out for that team.

The grade based is a big question that has been tossed around often. Grade based still allows the hold backs to shine when clearly on age they would not!

Example in 6th grade 2020 - Have age parameters on the grade based division so they cant skirt the system. Make the U breakdown the mixed pot of 2 years as it was meant to be; if you have a holdback play u13. If you want to play up that is what U bracket is for. If you have a hold back that doesn't qualify for u13 you are an embarrassment.


I also disagree with only being able to play one team. Why cant town and travel coexist. Sure it might be taxing on some athletes but not all athletes are the same, not all play as much as others. Why put pressure on a child to chose travel over town (or visa versa right Smithtown and Three Village)

Just saying…. that perhaps they are in the wrong division?!? Shameless when a team purposely registers themselves in the "B" Division to win a Championship yet brags on these forums how they are # 2 behind the Crush, who would never register in anything but "A". Shame on Terps and shame on Aloha for allowing it when they are a well known very competitive U13 team.

Re Terps - they do themselves and their players a disservice when they pick tourneys with relatively little competition out of state and then register as a "B". The unsportsmanlike nature of doing this to fellow lacrosse teams is just seen for what it is and in the end just distracts from the fact that they are a talented team. Can't have much pride when you roll over teams like that in a "B" division and on the other hand claim to be one of the top U13s. Hopefully, the other teams down there at Sizzle also know what the Terps are doing in their pursuit of a "championship" and can walk away knowing that a more deserving team should be the Champion. Gives all of LI a bad name out of state.

Totally agree, not bragging on the Terps, quite the opposite. A real shame for the true B teams in the bracket.

Congratulations to Crush who played A, presumably Legacy did also. Terps can not claim to be in the same class. They did not "win" a Championship - they sandbagged 31 other teams in pursuit of a trophy. Nobody is in awe.
We are all just embarassed for them and by them registering as "B" to win a trophy.

I witnessed some craziness on the sidelines this weekend at the NXT cup! The parents/coaches and players on them 91 Titanium were literally out of control. I don't know what these parents are thinking when they behave the way they did. The kids have obviously learned to follow their lead because they were cursing on the field and they played very dirty. I can just say, it was a sorry display of sportsmanship.

Crush played in 6th grade and won by 88-8 margin why play there? They already proved they can be the best 7th grade team oh wait, their star player was playing on another team in the 7 division and never shall the paths meet! Lol it must suck to base your whole team on 1 player but whatever gets you thru I guess. The coach can still tell everyone what a great TEAM they have ha ha

Crush has several "star" players and a lot of depth. Their new additions are working out very nicely. That's what happens when you have an experienced coach who knows how to recruit the best players. I agree that they need to play up more. They are able to maintain good relationships and share players with other teams because of good sportsmanship agreements, nothing wrong with that. They're plenty of very good 2019 teams Crush can play while avoiding DD.

Yes, I read some things on here about the coaches from Titanium before this weekend and nothing that was said did any justice. Usually its a few bad apples but in their case its a whole crate full of them. Love how the coaches knocked off the last 90 seconds of the Sons game by arguing a call that was in their favor. Two childish coaches that would not leave the field as the time continued to dwindle. Complete a-hole parents, kids and coaches. Surprised 91 allows this to go on. I wish there was video of you 91 titanium dads.

The very first call of the game had the parents screaming (and it was a call that went against the other team), they went down 2-0 right away and the parents were going off the deep end. One dad got kicked out (but came right back and his son congratulated him about that after the game), security had to be called because everyone was afraid it was going to get ugly, 91 players were slashing the other team off ball, players were cursing on the field. I truly felt it was all an attempt to intimidate the refs and the opposing players. Just all around ugliness.

Thing is Crush boys are growing just like everyone else. The difference is that they are just better lacrosse players. They are more skilled and have much better lax IQ. The reason for that is innate ability combined with an extreme dedication to the sport. As time goes on, most of the Crush boys will continue to dominate. I say this because the best boys on all teams will continue to be the best. Yes some will fade and others will emerge. Everything does not even out in HS. The good kids will still be the good kids, for the most part. I really hate to bring up the Turtles, but the two teams are rather similar in their domination of the sport. The Crush boys will follow the Turtle path. I have already heard many college coaches talking about them. They are on the radar and being watched already. That is not hearsay, I heard it from the mouth of several D1 coaches.

Turtles much more balanced and didn't rely solely on three players. Crush is good team but everything flows through three kids that play 90-100% of every game. That's not an equation to get your kid recruited. Nice to be part of a winning team but you're kidding yourself if you think anyone knows about your kid outside of the big 3.

Really? It is amazing the garbage people make up.

Most importantly the boy on the Looney's is OK and they were being cautious, better safe than sorry.

One of the first on the field to check on the boy was a Titanium mother in the medical field to offer support.

The coach of Titanium stayed well after the tournament to contact the other team, tournament directors to find out how the boys was doing.

Regarding what actually happened there was no hit in the head, he was hit in the neck by the ball, an unfortunate accident. Luckily he is fine.

But to take an injury to slander a team is what is classless.

Any actions by the kids are just a reflection of their parents. Sounds like they were way out of line. Sounds like the coaches were also. Yet people keep going back to that team. Like anything else, it's our choice as parents whether or not we want our sons involved with that type of atmosphere. The core group loves it and they turnover 6 to 8 kids every year.

Sorry wrong game and wrong injury. I thought you meant the kid that got hurt in the Rising Sons game. That is the kid that was hit in the head when he was down. I am glad to hear the Looney's boy is OK too! BTW, not one ounce of slander, saw it. However, I blame the out of control parents and coaches for letting the players get over emotional and out of control.

So first, the mother who rendered her aid....that is what she is supposed to do. You don't get bonus points. 2nd, the kids from 91 were swinging their sticks at our kids from Loonies like baseball bats at the end, there were several punches thrown and even one kid told our coach to go F himself in the handshake line. Some days I didn't wish I had to be a role model could I would light your daddy's up.

I love it. Talking Di schools . Why haven't they been asked to commit already. I'm sure half those D1 coaches hope they still have a job in 2021.. Could it be that they play more lacrosse then anyone at their age at this point. SOme kids do summer BB at the same time. Innate ability..LOL. Great stuff. They aren't all going to the same school. Make two teams out of them that would benefit everyone so they all can get better. They are good enough to make the others around them better. SO if you are not good in 6th grade your future in lacrosse could be coming to an end if you don't have that innate ability that these special kids only have. I hope all of their PAL teams went undefeated in all of their towns as well. Get a life and be real. Thanks for the morning chuckle..

Not sure why teams from LI feel like it is OK to act like this?! I feel sorry for the kids because they are going to get nowhere in life.

From the sounds of it, this team should not be invited back. Unfortunately, it is behavior like this that makes everyone from LI look bad, and there have to be some decent Long islanders out there, right?!

This team added several ex-Crush players to the roster who were not satisfied with their limited playing time on Crush. Along with them comes their crazy parents. Please don't judge LI'ers by these maniacs. Their entire lives are devoted to 12 year old lacrosse and they can't handle losing

It was a U13 tournament, that means "U13:
All players must be 12 years old or younger on the August 31st preceding competition. It is recommended that when multiple teams exist within a program, the program should consider physical size, skill, and maturity when organizing teams."

Terps 2020 are a technically a U12 team, so playing in the U13 B bracket made the most sense without knowing which teams were entering the tournament, of which there were 32. The competition was not strong and nobody was happy about it - coaches, players or parents, but in the past few years this tournament had good competition (age appropriate for playing in the B division - a number of good 2020 teams didn't attend this year). To imply that the team entered the "B" division simply to win a trophy is ridiculous, they did it to win fiddle sticks!

Breakers 2020 is a legit A team and the Terps beat them solidly, 9-2 in the semis. Wish the competition was better but there's nothing they could do about once the team showed up.

There are definitely decent LIers out there but unfortunately LI is becoming known for sending rude, disrespectful and unsportsmanlike thugs out of state. And before you say that people only hate because those teams are good - please get a clue and look at your team's behavior. Would love the competition the LI teams bring but please leave the bad attitudes, cursing and slashing thug kids and the crazy rude parents at home and just play lacrosse the way the game is intended to be played and be classy. Those teams do themselves, their kids and this region a huge disservice with all the nonsense.

Terps knew weeks in advance the competition at Summer Sizzle as did all the other teams. The schedules were also posted several weeks ago. "A" only had 8 teams due to their also being a "rising 8th grade bracket" at the tournament. Either you are one of the best or you are not - guess you are not in the same class as Crush.

The schedule was published weeks ago. It's not like they had no idea who they might be facing until Saturday morning.

Is what they did "right" according to how the rules are written, yes. Is it appropriate given the skill, ability, and track record of the team? Absolutely not. I'm quite sure that if Crush came down to this tournament and did the same the Terps would either stay away or be out here whining up a storm.

8-10 2020 Terps boys as a group tried to cut the line at the speed shoot at Summer Sizzle, pushing several younger kids aside, language totally inappropriate in line and gave the workers at the booth a hard time. Where were their parents while their kids are being rude and disrespectful? Please stay on LI if you are going to behave this way while you are out of state. This is why nobody wants the NY teams in their region- the entitlement, the behavior and the disrespect to fellow human beings on and off the field. Teach your kids and parents that they can be great teams while also being good people - not mutually exclusive.

Bottom line- every team has their best 3 kids that can be game changers and any team can be broken down a bit if they are not there. The difference is, this team has a list of kids that would jump to join Crush, and the kids behind the "three" are all talented A level kids. The same could be said for the TERPS. LI should be proud to have two very talented teams with great coaching.

It is sad so many adults pick on the better teams. I see no reason why TERPS or CRUSH should be forced to play up because they are the best that 2020 has right now. Playing up comes with a price, and the price isn't losing, but getting hurt, playing bigger kids. Would you want your little Johnny playing against a kid that weighs 60 pounds more than he does and wears a mens L, with a size 11 foot?

Next year maybe they will. This year was a rebuilding year for 2020. Historically they weren't a strong team and this year there were some good additions which brought up their level of play. They can be proud of their success this year as there are plenty of B teams that didn't win any tournaments. It doesn't mean they suck because they didn't play in A brackets.

It is NOT playing "up" to play the "A" level in an age based tournament. Playing "B" in a tournament that offered B, A and a rising 8th grade division when you claim to be one of the best U13 teams out there is playing down or if you are not sure, find grade based tournaments. Pool play goals for Terps were 53 and against were 2. That was over 5 games.You are good - you are not THAT good.

A 2020 team *should* be in the 13B division this Summer, unless they are playing up. And, although it may be appropriate for some teams to play up due to their high skill level, it is certainly legitimate to avoid playing older kids due to safety , particularly at an age when some kids are hitting puberty and some aren't. Sounds like folks have plenty to post about without raising that false issue.

One o f many who left team because of bad coaching. Coach (parent coach) was good about x and o's but was all about winning at all costs. Talent level is not at level coach wants and can't accept it so will do anything to win. He gives li and 91 a bad name and why they keep him around is the problem. Changing the team name is not going to hide bad guy. Even core group is looking to move on

Once again, in a U13 tournament, top-tier 2020 kids playing A is not playing up.

The argument that we are keeping them safe is weak - teams who can move the ball and execute plays are much less vulnerable than those teams who have to grind out ground balls and rush the goal to score. There were a good number of big kids with poor skills in the B division, those are the ones to look out for.

I'd argue that you are putting your kids at more risk by exposing them to some big 170 lb 7th grader who feels the need to take someone out while his team is getting thrashed 12-0

So it is okay for boys to be pushing aside younger kids, cursing and giving workers a hard time?!? That makes it so much clearer and is exactly why so many LI teams get a bad reputation - it is NOT okay and your calling people morons really shows the example that you set for your kids and your attitude in general. Our kids were on line, following the rules and being respectful of those around them (really is not that hard- you should try it some time) . This is the same way we and their coaches expect them to play on the field because if you have not yet figured it out, there is a direct correlation between expectations for behavior on and off the field which carries over into all areas of their life.

The first time we encountered Crush parents we all said "who are these people"? Ever since it has always been more of the same. I doubt there is a parent out there who has shared the sideline with Crush who would say that their lacrosse experience has been enhanced as a result, quite the opposite. I've met other Team 91 parents who were very nice, and also somewhat embarrassed by Crush.

The parents are what they are, yes it's a shame but life sometimes life isn't fair. They didn't say much when their kids were being pushed around and manhandled at Laxfest ( that wasn't fair either but they took their lumps and moved on while being humbled). Taking a good beating once in a while is not a bad thing. They learned from it and did better this week. They didn't cry after being beaten physically by kids a year older. They came back and won a tournament

Crush does not have only three great players. They have a well oiled machine. Lets start with middies. They have two very good wing middies. These boys are real workhorses. transitioning the ball and rarely make mistakes. The center is shared by two of the best f/o boys in the grade. Smart to pick up the second after the other boy (excellent as well) left to Titanium. Possessions are pretty much automatic. Can't say enough about the attack. Left is so good that you don't always appreciate the great talent in the other two. They move the ball effortlessly. Defense is very strong as well. they cause so many turnovers that the goalie is hardly shot on and will face the same problem as goalies of other great teams as they get older. It is hard to judge them. There second line is made up of all AA players as well. This team did not get where they are by accident. They work incredibly hard and are actually very nice boys. I understand they are easy to hate because of what they have achieved. Three kids can't make a team but I think if you took away the lefty and wing middie the team would be more similar to Terps. And for those who are comparing this team to the Turtles, I have seen both through the years. At this point Crush has been more dominant in all area based on level of play and scores.

Maybe they didn't cry....but they did get a new faceoff kid. Crush excels on offense. However, when they don't win faceoffs and have to play defense they are no longer head and shoulders above other 2020 teams. Their defense hasn't had to play a lot of defense.

You make a very good point. That is why I can't understand who would want to play defense for that team. You hardly see any action at all. YOur better off playing for a middle of the road team and see ing more action. I can hear it already " They learn more in practice from us teaching them then any game will bring". What it means is "we need people to fill in our roster to cover the cost and are ok receiving medals everytime we win"

The boy on our team ( looneys) is going to be fine. Thank god as it was scary.
As far as the Crush banter , we unlike many other clubs try to play every tournament they are in? Our boys have formed a friendship and a mutual respect with Crush we even shared a tailgate yesterday. In addition I know the Rising Sons have also done things with Crush and the boys are friends. The one common denominator here is the Crush bashing from express daddies. We have played Crush countless times and they have beaten us different ways and we are a top 2020. Personally wish it was as easy as stopping 3kids my reply to that is which three on which day as we have seen 34 22 29 2 12 99 they move the ball like a college team. The boys and parents are good people and even though were from Maryland the kids could be teammates someday. Keep it class LI (ex) when you can not beat a team which no team in their grade ever has we result to this, well I guess money can't buy everything

Coach...I don't think my kid is to much into partying with a team that always keeps beating us up. Maybe you should schedule a weekend where you play the Crush 5 times over the weekend this way it would be cheaper for you and then you can enter other tournaments that your team can win at. Telling your kids they have no chance before the game starts each tournament isn't fun. Have you tried different ways to beat them. You should be able to figure it out at least once. Try not to keep playing second fiddle to them. It doesn't help your kids. Schedule a second meeting with them in August so your team can play them 5 more times over a weekend and see where you stand but entering every tournament they are in sounds like you enjoy being their punching bag. I assume your the coach since you study their numbers and hang out with them all the time

They only beat you by 6 this weekend. I guess it pays to tailgate with them so hopefully they take it easy on you. Trying to figure out where the mutual respect comes from.. It seems there is the Crush and then everyone else no real top teams after that.

I forgot they beat you by 11 in the finals. There can be no respect there at all. 2 Games beaten by 17 goals makes for a beating in my book

It does, but it sounds like this classy Marylander is taking his hat off to what 91 has put together and done. Doesn't make his team any worse or yours, for that matter--both tops in the country it would seem for '2020. Again, I'm from LI and with fl$, no horse in the race. Hey, when Tiger Woods was running show in the golf world it wasn't because there were no other great golfers in the world he was just at his zenith and was tough to touch...

They should go to the Legacy and True Blue tryouts this year. I assume they are looking to upgrade their top teams.

Trust me put the faceoff Middie and the big lefty attack man on the other top team and THEY become the best team . sorry to burst any bubbles of the other kids but those 2 kids make everything work. The other kids are good no doubt but they can't carry it like the 2 stars can and thats a fact. Play without them and let's see how it goes and don't say they have them on their team cause the other kid plays on another team too

What a smart [lacrosse] response. People like you give LI a bad name. Sore loser and a wise [lacrosse]. All the guy was saying is his experience and philosophy of coaching is different then yours. Apparently, that makes him wrong and you right. If crush is the best right now, the only way to make your team better is by playing better competition. We learn from practice and mistakes. If the kids are friendly, there are no bad feelings. You think the kids at St Ants and Chaminade aren't friends? Yet they go at it with one another on the field. Ever since my son was young, his coach had his team try and play up to give them experience. Some times it was not fun, but it certainly made them stronger, smarter players. May not be your philosophy, but others believe it to work. GL to you and your team.

Let's set the record straight concerning the 91 Titanium vs Looneys game. BOTH teams were aggressive that game and BOTH sets of parents were acting inappropriate. I was there as well and have a son on Titanium and the cursing accusations are completely opposite of what happened. In fact the Looneys coach was heard cursing at a 12 year old 91 player after his player hit him in the handshake line. Those 91 kids are respectful players who were involved in a game that could have been managed with proper officiating. My kid has welts all over from the slashes given by the Looneys kids. Their sticks were swinging quite wildly that day.
Several previous post begin with "sounds like". That means you didn't witness it yourself yet you feel it necessary to grab your torch and join the mob. That is ridiculous.

I respect the Looneys. They are a very good team already, looking to get better. My kid's team played them and they are first class all the way. Forging a good relationship with the other top teams will only help the sport and the kids. Haters need to stop complaining and look for ways to help your kid improve!

It's okay because the other parents acted poorly also? That is ridiculous. You readily admit that you and your fellow 91 Titanium parents acted inappropriately, but you justify it with a "they were bad too". You sound like a child.

With respect to the Looney parent's post on the friendships developed between boys on their team and Crush; that's great and frankly exists between many of the teams. What's painful to see is this parent's need to then take a positive post and make a childish, derogatory swipe at another organization. These posts are all anonymous, so saying the only common denominator is Crush bashing from Express daddies, is pure speculation since you have no idea what parent, child, teammate, random poster, etc. made any of the comments. You are just part of the problem; feeding the negative stereotypes that saturates this site. You have the nerve to tell LI not to be classless? For the record, I think Crush is a phenomenal team and I'm not an Express Daddy. I just get so sick of individuals like you who are too naive to realize that you are acting like the very people you claim to be complaining about. Grow up!

That's not what the post said. It simply balanced the hypocritical one way posts that used false accusations and vilified the Titanium parents and players. Sorry you couldn't see that. Btw the behavior of a few parents does not a culture make. As does the behavior of a few players does not damn an entire team. Relax with your broad generalizations.

Were you at the game ? Certainly not. Yet you still comment. Go watch CNN and find some other senseless cause to jump on and drive away in your hybrid car with a "Think Globally, Act Locally" bumper sticker on it.

I hate to say this, but I have seen MANY teams from LI over the years and the parents/players/coaches are a different breed. It must be something about the lifestyle there because these people act very entitled and rude, not sure they even see it because I just think it is their culture. For the most part they seem very rough.

The point is that Crush has the 3-4 best lacrosse players in the 2020 age group. Nobody is disparaging the rest of the team, they are all very good too and could make/contribute on any of the other top teams. Those 3-4 impact players aren't going anywhere and until other teams catch up in size/strength Crush will continue to dominate. After Crush there are 4-5 teams that can all play great youth lacrosse and probably could beat one another on any given day.

What do you mean about "catch up"? Aren't all the boys growing? Crush boys same size as boys on other teams. Won't they all grow at about the same rate? Obviously some will wind up bigger than others, but you don't have to be big to be a great lacrosse player!

Obviously not just size/strength but speed, quickness, agility, vision and balance all will come into play. Top players are all tremendous athletes in addition to lacrosse skills. Will the Crush kids become those types of athletes as they mature? Undoubtedly some, maybe most, will but some won't. And if other teams surpass them in athletic terms and continue to improve lacrosse skills and intelligence, Crush will not be as dominant. They are way ahead of the curve at this point. It will be interesting to see if they can stay ahead as the years progress.

What do you mean about "catch up"? Aren't all the boys growing? Crush boys same size as boys on other teams. Won't they all grow at about the same rate? Obviously some will wind up bigger than others, but you don't have to be big to be a great lacrosse player!


Obviously not just size/strength but speed, quickness, agility, vision and balance all will come into play. Top players are all tremendous athletes in addition to lacrosse skills. Will the Crush kids become those types of athletes as they mature? Undoubtedly some, maybe most, will but some won't. And if other teams surpass them in athletic terms and continue to improve lacrosse skills and intelligence, Crush will not be as dominant. They are way ahead of the curve at this point. It will be interesting to see if they can stay ahead as the years progress.


They will stay on top by recruiting the top players. Most of the Crush players were cherry picked from other clubs, some are shared. If a kid is not cutting it or growing, they will be dropped to Titanium. That is the model.

When faceoffs midfielder plays on his other team Crush does just fine, not missing a beat


The point is that Crush has the 3-4 best lacrosse players in the 2020 age group. Nobody is disparaging the rest of the team, they are all very good too and could make/contribute on any of the other top teams.

Btw all the hits you are talking about were clean hits and no flags were thrown. One thing for sure when you come play 91 titanium you better buckle your chin strap they are going to hit you and try to line you up. there coach teaches hardcore nose to the ground lacrosse...and yes you keep bringing up they got this kid from that team that kid from this team. there coach is getting calls from kids on different teams every week and will continue to build a formidable team.. there is no doubt after the season 91 titanium has had they will continue to get better players and be one of the elite teams REAL SOON IF NOT ALREADY!!!

No loyalty with them. Can understand year to year changes in players but players unhappy with Crush playing time show up mid season and players there all year get reduced playing time. Perfect example was this weekend. Who were the two Titanium players with light blue helmets? Crush players wearing town helmets?

The above average size attackman is from GC. GC will be making a big push to keep their kids together next year as 7th graders. They bring the varsity coach to tell the parents that he'd rather they don't play for outside travel teams.

Time for the coach to watch the pros instead of teaching his kids to hit and "line you up" …"hard core nose to the ground lacrosse" is not lacrosse - it is a strategy used by teams with no stick skills or finesse. Additionally, it causes untold unnecessary injuries to other players which I am sure this coach also does not care about. Another brilliant coach setting an example and making LI look bad.

He probably doesn't know that the word "had" connotes that they were actually ahead. I'm guessing he was in a rush to get to his Suffolk County Mensa meeting when he posted that.

He is a great kid. Didn't "quit" any teams. Still plays Smithtown and Legacy and also occasionally Sweetlax because his older brother plays on that team. He was asked to play for Crush a few times and it was all cleared with Legacy ahead of time, as they have two other excellent F/O kids. Why all the hate?

Considering that Legacy just struggled to beat the West Islip town team, maybe they should stop lending their players. And West Islip's best player is on the Terps and doesn't play with the town team in the summer.

dLegacy didn't struggle to beat WI. If you were paying attention you wold have seen that after they were up by 4 they decided to give their other goalie a chance to play as well as their 2 attack man that don't get to play often. They also took a kid who has never done FO for them and let him take them. They put their long poles on offense. They didn't struggle, they just didn't run up the score with their starting players, they gave everyone a chance to play different positions.

There is just as much craziness in elite ice hockey, soccer and basketball. All sports have become crazy. Kids just do not do the community team, everything is travel and competition teams- including cheerleading and dance for the girls, on top of all their sports teams. It is a culture and it is in fact crazy.

Can you explain what "hardcore nose to the ground" means? I've heard "Keep your EAR to the ground" and "Keep your nose to the GRINDSTONE" but never "hardcore nose to the ground." Thanks.

Sure he is a great kid but he did "quit" Team LI also this year. That makes 5 travel teams his parents committed him to this year. A bit extreme, don't you think?

Its probably a new lacrosse technique that this "tough guy" team has implemented. Maybe they can smell out ground balls better with their noses to the ground.

Can you explain what "hardcore nose to the ground" means? I've heard "Keep your EAR to the ground" and "Keep your nose to the GRINDSTONE" but never "hardcore nose to the ground." Thanks.


Yes I can explain it. First it means your a [lacrosse]. The rest is obvious.

It must be great to be a fellow parent on the sidelines with you. 91 must be so proud to have you.

I think you should read up on the various spellings and meanings of the words "their," "there" and "they're." It's tough to take your posts seriously with so many grammatical and spelling errors.

He was asked to play for Crush a few times and it was all cleared with Legacy ahead of time, as they have two other excellent F/O kids. Why all the hate? Why do people care so much that a kid is exploring his options?


Sure he is a great kid but he did "quit" Team LI also this year. That makes 5 travel teams his parents committed him to this year. A bit extreme, don't you think?


Here are the facts for whoever is so concerned:

He tried out for Team LI but left the team BEFORE the season started due to schedule conflicts. All but ONE tournament conflicted with Team Smithtown schedule.

He played with Team Smithtown in all tournaments except one which was an add on.

He played two tournaments with Sweetlax. One last fall and one a couple weeks ago where he played AGAINST Crush. Making connections and friendships with teams outside Long Island could be considered a good thing by some.

He played with Legacy all season except the last tournament (Beach Bash) where he was released to play with Crush. Legacy also has several very good F/O players, and are not dependent on one.

I hope this clears up any confusion. He does play a lot of lax on multiple team to gain experience, not to offend anyone.

These posts must be from a kid, THERE is no way that a parent would post something like this. THEIR credibility as a team would be seriously compromised if this was a parent and for the most part THEY'RE nice people.

As long as e pays to play on all those teams I don't see it being a problem..If my kid had less playing time because they brought him in then yes it is a big problem for everyone.

I was at NXT and watched this game. The 91 kids, coaches and parents are out of control. It starts with the organization. These boys are doing what they were taught to do and I can tell you that if they continue to play this way more kids are going to get hurt. This is not "hard nose" lacrosse. It's slashing, hitting from behind, hitting after the play is over. If they don't get called it doesn't mean it didn't happen!! You should take your son get him away from those coaches AND that organization. I am a LI parent who was embarrassed by the way you represent LI lacrosse. Get it together!!

And now we wait for the tough guy's eloquent reply. Not all the 91 teams are like this.
The 91 2019'Orange team wins every game and shows sportsmanship while doing it. And their parents have class. Not so much for their 2020 B team(titanium).

You are quite wrong about this team. I watched this game as well and saw a horribly officiated game that had major fouls by Looneys kids go uncalled. This led to an out of control game with slashing etc on both sides. Looneys parents and coach were way out of control. This behavior is not appropriate by either side but the 91 bashing is so slanted and untruthful concerning this team.
Do you all mean to tell me all of a sudden after a full summer of many tournaments this team and their parents all of a sudden became this way. Not a single word about it until they beat Rising Sons and had this heated game with Looneys.
The LI parent who commented should wake up and recognize that inappropriate behold at lax games is an epidemic and not exclusive to any region. Be a team player and stop embarrassing yourself or are you the Crush BBQ guy?

I was not only commenting on the Titanium parents but the organization as well!! Do you want to talk about CRUSH? Here you go...they are up 16-2 with a couple on minutes left and that jerkoff coach calls a play and 22 goes behind his back as his coach cheers him on. WHAT A JOKE!!

While I am not in favor of running up scores, it is always going to be part of the game if they use goal differential to place teams for play offs. One of my sons coaches is very against running up the score against a lesser team. We have been out of play off running, despite winning all games, because we go to passing around the ball rather than shooting. It is what it is, but at some level you have to play a game without letting up, or else you never get to play some of the better teams. Then watching the national teams play this week certainly wasn't teaching the kids to take it easy either- many lopsided scores for the kids to see. Again- I'm not in favor of it, but it's a 2 edged sword and my son had been on both ends, not fun either way.

great kid, nice family.
many boys play on more than one team.
as long as it doesn't directly impact your life then what are you whining about? pick on someone your own size dad.
on the other hand, if it directly impacts your daily life perhaps you need a little therapy. get your own house in order.

Ohh here to stir more stuff up. Funny thing is at our 17-2 game our coach was not there he was coaching his younger team. To really add to it the boys did not shoot the final ten minutes. Heck of a try tho. Back to the cheap shot hits

I was not only commenting on the Titanium parents but the organization as well!! Do you want to talk about CRUSH? Here you go...they are up 16-2 with a couple on minutes left and that jerkoff coach calls a play and 22 goes behind his back as his coach cheers him on. WHAT A JOKE!!

Ohh here to stir more stuff up. Funny thing is at our 17-2 game our coach was not there he was coaching his younger team. To really add to it the boys did not shoot the final ten minutes. Heck of a try tho. Back to the cheap shot hits
That's a lie! Whatever. Anyone who has played CRUSH knows you have NEVER gone ten minutes without shooting...EVER!!!

You're out of you're F'in mind! WOW! Crazy!


I was at NXT and watched this game. The 91 kids, coaches and parents are out of control. It starts with the organization. These boys are doing what they were taught to do and I can tell you that if they continue to play this way more kids are going to get hurt. This is not "hard nose" lacrosse. It's slashing, hitting from behind, hitting after the play is over. If they don't get called it doesn't mean it didn't happen!! You should take your son get him away from those coaches AND that organization. I am a LI parent who was embarrassed by the way you represent LI lacrosse. Get it together!!


You are quite wrong about this team. I watched this game as well and saw a horribly officiated game that had major fouls by Looneys kids go uncalled. This led to an out of control game with slashing etc on both sides. Looneys parents and coach were way out of control. This behavior is not appropriate by either side but the 91 bashing is so slanted and untruthful concerning this team.

Having played Looneys and Crush several times, both teams are out of control and their coaches wind those kids up. We have had several injuries (serious) after playing both teams. Crush also has a habit of tricks when the score is run up. Refs in tournies do not make most calls they should just to keep the games on time so that is no measure of whether the kids and coaches are wrong. The parents are rude and disrespectful and cheer when kids are injured. Both teams give the sport a bad name.

My team has also played the Looneys and the were classy and skilled. Crush...."don't hate me because I'm beautiful" Everyone loves to talk about them, but they really just are an extremely elite team that most of us would love to have our kids on if we had the chance. I think all you people need to focus on your own kids and their growth in the sport. Do what works, find a fit, and stay hungry! My two cents!

The tryouts for the Maryland teams are posted on one of their threads. Interesting that almost all are in August. Outlaws do it early up here. Sounds like the Jesters are trying to go in August also. How long before most of the LI teams start doing theirs in August?

In terms of the kids being in great lax shape and form- the try outs would work best in August. However, they would also interfere with family vacations in NY. MD and other states go back to school at the end of August, where as our kids were in school until the end of June and do not go back until after Labor Day- Sept 6th or 7th this year. I guess if your spot is pretty secure on your team and your family vacationed it is not a big deal, but if you are looking to move to another club or break into a better team, families would have to give up more time to lax.

Is Crush playing in the stonybrook lax fest? If so please don't question where Legecy played last week, because you are in the same division as three as three town teams. Maybe this is the tournament other kids play? probably not.

Are there any players from Nassau County on the team other than the big attackman from GC?


Can you explain what "hardcore nose to the ground" means? I've heard "Keep your EAR to the ground" and "Keep your nose to the GRINDSTONE" but never "hardcore nose to the ground." Thanks.


Yes I can explain it. First it means your a [lacrosse]. The rest is obvious.


It is "you are" or "you're" a [lacrosse]....cretin.

If they are from S.W.R. or near there, they may go to the new group that the old SWR coach is starting. If they are near Islip they may go to Legacy. If they are from the south shore of Nassau County they may go to True Blue. If they are from the north shore they may go to Express or fl$.
Plenty of options.

While titanium may be a nice fit and comfortable team at the end of the day people look out for themselves. Some realize that a B team in an organization is not going to top invite tournaments or getting you into top individual showcases Only being on a top team will do that and better be on one of the top teams by 8 th grade. Can't blame a kid for looking at the big picture and what will get teM to the promise land. Titanium will always be the stepchild

I wouldn't call them a stepchild but there is so much focus on Crush that it does take away from Titanium.

They won't leave because they would be taking a step backwards. Can't get on Crush unless invited, chances of making Terps slim to none. Who knows whats going on with Legacy....that's a gamble. All other clubs way below!

My kid plays for Leading Edge from New Jersey. We beat 91 Titanium by one goal a few weeks ago, and we beat True Blue by two goals last weekend. Both games were great competition. 91 was tough on defense. True Blue had very good middies. They looked pretty equal overall.

Let's get this straight kids are not leaving to go anywhere the season hasn't ended. There are few choices out there. It's either 91 or express you always stay with the best coaches. Everything else will work itself out. You first need athletes before you can make a lacrosse team. Anybody who thinks differently is kidding themselves and delusional and titanium will get them!!!

Nothing to do with it. Crush is a fantastic team and does not have to behave the way they do. Running up scores, verbally harassment and doing trick shots when you are up by 10plus is unsportsmanslike. Parents behaving like lunatics is just wrong. RM and SM winding up the Looneys boys so they go out and hit like crazy is not classy. Their onfield language is ridiculous.

I have to disagree. My son plays 2021 and has played all of the top teams in that year. In the heat of the game I have heard the most mild mannered and respectable kids get involved in the trash talking, my son included. If you think that your kid doesn't get competitive and in the heat of the moment when hey are playing then your ignorant. It also does not mean they are bad kids on and off the field. Sit by the sidelines at a high school game and listen to these kids. Trash talking is part of the game in any sport. And as for pumping up the kids, what are the coaches supposed to do? That's their job. Kids wanna win and go balls to the wall throughout the game, sounds to me like you expect these boys to stop playing their hearts out and it's not fair to them. They're supposed to stop playing hard because their winning? What does that teach them? You also can't fault them when they play in a 2020 division in a tournament because they are a 2020 team. But I guess that's what happened when you're on the top, they do the same thing to igloo in our forum

I agree- I do not see it as bad sportsmanship by having the kids play the game. I have had kids on both sides of the game and it was more embarrassing for the kids to watch the better team pass the ball around them, rather than for the kids to play the game. Let the kids play, teach them that it will not always be close and work hard to improve and get better. A much better lesson than having them be humiliated as a team plays keep away with the ball. Unfortunately, I think the better teams are starting to play keep away with the ball because of the parents screaming about bad sportsmanship. A game is a game- play it with heart all the way through.

Trash talk- happens in all sports- even among the most mild mannered kids. I think calling out that makes parents sound like they are picking on kids for the sake of having nothing else to say. Mic your team up and see what you hear... they all do it.

Let the kids play, teach them that it will not always be close and work hard to improve and get better. A much better lesson than having them be humiliated as a team plays keep away with the ball. Unfortunately, I think the better teams are starting to play keep away with the ball because of the parents screaming about bad sportsmanship. A game is a game- play it with heart all the way through.

Trash talk- happens in all sports- even among the most mild mannered kids. I think calling out that makes parents sound like they are picking on kids for the sake of having nothing else to say. Mic your team up and see what you hear... they all do it.


Making excuses for bad behavior is epidemic in sports. Low expectations breed low behavior. Adults explaining away bad behavior and tolerating it, is exactly why they continue to behave this way and it is escalating.

Be sure to send that Titanium / True Blue score to all the colleges--i'm sure they will be very interested in the outcome! Could change their whole recruiting plan. what a joke... goons...

I think all you people need to focus on your own kids and their growth in the sport. Do what works, find a fit, and stay hungry! My two cents!


Nothing to do with it. Crush is a fantastic team and does not have to behave the way they do. Running up scores, verbally harassment and doing trick shots when you are up by 10plus is unsportsmanslike. Parents behaving like lunatics is just wrong. RM and SM winding up the Looneys boys so they go out and hit like crazy is not classy. Their onfield language is ridiculous.



I have to disagree. My son plays 2021 and has played all of the top teams in that year. In the heat of the game I have heard the most mild mannered and respectable kids get involved in the trash talking, my son included. If you think that your kid doesn't get competitive and in the heat of the moment when hey are playing then your ignorant. It also does not mean they are bad kids on and off the field. Sit by the sidelines at a high school game and listen to these kids. Trash talking is part of the game in any sport. And as for pumping up the kids, what are the coaches supposed to do? That's their job. Kids wanna win and go balls to the wall throughout the game, sounds to me like you expect these boys to stop playing their hearts out and it's not fair to them. They're supposed to stop playing hard because their winning? What does that teach them? You also can't fault them when they play in a 2020 division in a tournament because they are a 2020 team. But I guess that's what happened when you're on the top, they do the same thing to igloo in our forum

I did not see any excuses. Play the full game with heart- winner plays the best full game. Trash talk, until you know your kid or team does not EVER do it- don't be a hypocrite. Put your team on here and let the rest of us decide if we have heard it from your team- because they ALL do it.

Not from a Titanium parent. Just some jerk off trying to start something. Don't entertain them and they go away. We will let the 12 year olds play and have fun and whatever the result do be it.

Meant to say what was the name of the old SWR coach/group/team being created for the 2020. Looking for a team that practices near that location. Practice locations are not a good fit regarding Team 91- Farmingdale, Express - St Anthony's

Can't be the same guy from SWR because he was against travel programs. He wanted everyone to play in TOWN only.
