Bandits by far? Interesting when they have rising 5th graders play on the team! They should dominate other rising 4th graders. Especially when they use older siblings to ensure a win. Not impressed. Unfortunately this takes the credit due away from those kids who truly belong in that age group. False advertising to market team as best by far when they encourage parents of older kids to leave their kids back so the can play on the team. Sad.

I'm not sure what went on this week end, but don't throw away the rest of the summer. They are an excellent team for their age. They have won many tournaments this summer.

Of course they're an excellent team especially when they have a rising fifth grade goalie and they used a kid from Crush to help out. They tried to hide it by having the kid wear someone else's pinnie. This is really pathetic at the fourth grade level.

The Outlaws team is a great team too. The 2nd 91 team not so much.

Everybody likes to bash 91. For you to say that you obviously were not at the game. Both those teams played great games so why not just leave it at that. Unless the Outlaws coach is telling you your the A team and you can't understand how the 91 B team gives you so much trouble.

The kid is 11 and should actually be going into 6th grade but was held back, playing with rising 4th grade and against rising 5th grade, no excuses ....pathetic
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2023 Fall 2014/Summer 2015 -
Then they should have ONLY 9 year olds playing, not 11 year olds who should be going into 6th grade ....nothing to do with the kids, its the coach.....

Outlaws great team, 91B Warriors not so much???

Pool Play = Outlaws 3 - Warriors 1
Championship = Outlaws 6 - Warriors 3.

Good games. Why would you say one is GREAT! and the other not so much.

So let me get this straight- kid is going into 5th gr and played in a rising 5th gr bracket, despite the fact he plays on an older team. Was this an age based tourney or grade based? I'm thinking he was clear to play if he was a rising 5 th in a rising 5th gr bracket despite all else. Do you think none of the other teams that day had kids held back a yr before they started school?

"other teams do it"makes it right? It would be like my young 6'1" 190 lb 8th grader playing against 6th grade kids . Its just wrong .
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2023 Fall 2014/Summer 2015 -
Age based format works best. If it's Sept 1st 2014 and your child is still 9 you play 2023. I don't care about what grade a kid is in. I have no problem playing against any rising 5th grader for next year in the 2023 group as long as he fits the U9 criteria. At least it's age appropriate.

These are children playing at a very high-level who should be commended for that, not insulted by randoms.

Everything else is just noise.

Bandits 6 - Badgers 3. Laxfest final. And even though it was 6-0 in Maryland in early June the Badgers held them to 6 goals. Not saying the Badgers are the better team, Bandits are and will be until a 2023/u9 the beats them. But the Badgers can certainly match up.

I was told lot of the kids on the Bandits DO NOT play and that the Coach keeps about 6-7 kids (his own and other close friends) on the field all the time. I heard the Badgers played every player an equal amount of time and still competed. If you are thinking of switching clubs; Badgers is the place to be. You will get tons of practices from September all the way through the last game of summer ball.

Great! Leave the Badgers out. Better club, better coaches, and better team environment. Success is measured differently. Not just by saying your the best "by far".

How can you say "not in same convo"? The badgers were beating them 2-0 and it was 4-3 with 2 mins to go in the game with the final of 6-3.

Bandits are a good team. Badgers are equally as good. It's great competition. Leave it at that

Express tryouts are in August. So should be interesting to see how many Bandits attend.

Saw them play yesterday at Lax4BackPax. Couple of kids with some skill. The coaching was not impressive at all. A lot of yelling at kids and screaming at them for mistakes made on the field. Seemed to be no coaching going on. Plainedge team was up by a couple when I was watching. Don't know the final, but they are an average B team.

Was impressed by the Plainedge team, couple of very good players and they moved the ball well for a town team. Seen them at a couple of town tournaments this year.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2023 Fall 2014/Summer 2015 -
Plainedge is a solid town team. Bayport, Smithtown, Connetquot, Sayville also very good competitive town teams that will beat several travel clubs at this level. Not A teams, but good B squads.

Your out of your mind! I am the coach of the 2023 Plainedge Maniacs team and I will never risk the health and well being of anyone on the field by playing a boy who is not the correct age or grade. I coach the game to these boys and stress honor and sportsmanship. Anyone that knows me knows that. Step out from behind the Anonymous shield and put a name to that complete and total lie. Name one instance ever that the 2023 team played with older players on their sidelines. You are taking away from the great group of kids and families that we have in the Plainedge community that are trying to build a good lacrosse program.

You should have them take the 4th grade stickers off of their helmets then... Gives other teams the wrong idea.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2023 Fall 2014/Summer 2015 -
Many smaller towns have combined teams during the season just to field a team.So that 2023 kid may very well play on the 4th grade team.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2023 Fall 2014/Summer 2015 -
What stickers are you talking about? All Plainedge helmets are the same. Some of the boys may have stickers from there travel team but nothing that would indicate a particular grade.

Is this a serious question? Neither of these teams are going to make significant changes. Maybe upgrade 2 or 3 players to add depth to the bench. Unless you have been approached you are trying out for the B teams.

it's a serious question. When you advertise tryouts for a team team and charge money parents should know if there are any spots open. Otherwise its called fraud. clubs should have to post what positions are available

It cuts both ways. If they made significant changes plenty of parents on here would argue there is no loyalty. I think the reality is if the team is successful they will keep the core group and probably turnover the bottom 6 or 7 roster spots to either add depth or more likely to replace turnover for kids that leave who were not playing many minutes.

Wishful thinking dad... If a kid tries out and he's better than your kid then your kid is gone. You're going to see a tremendous influx of new talent trying out this year now that the boys are a bit older. Traditionally, 4th grade is when most parents consider travel lax. The little kids that could catch in 2nd grade made Bandits and HB. I will bet you that you'll see about 8 new kids on each team. The coaches don't care about you OR little Johnny. They want the best kids available.

Time for a reality check...
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2023 Fall 2014/Summer 2015 -
It is frustrating for sure. The elite teams are definitely more of an invite process, but I am sure if a kid wows the evaluators, there is a chance of making a team that didn't have an opening. Either they will be added or bump a player. However, they are advertising try outs- not for specific teams, so I don't think it is fraud. A call to the director may be able to help clear up which teams are looking for which positions.

I have friends with kids on both teams. I've heard that Bandits are looking to upgrade more size at middie and a second goalie. HB are looking to upgrade at defense. Both are looking for more physical lefty attackmen.

How would anyone know completely what is available. On the other hand, you are asking about some of the best if not the best teams in the area, so you must believe your kid has some RP3 in him. Why not roll the dice, it is going to be a challenge for your boy. Let him see how he stacks up against the best. Maybe he is right there and needs a little work on his weak hand, maybe he needs to play with more (or less) control. It might be good for him to see how they play/practice. At a minimum he will get two reasonable runs in and a pinnie (ok he has enough pinnies I am sure). Good Luck, and remember that $85 or $100 is not what it used to be.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2023 Fall 2014/Summer 2015 -
Every top team adds. But remember when these teams played at the 2023/U9 level won every game. The only two games the Badgers lost was to the Bandits. That means they have talented kids. However, if kids show up that are clearly better, they'll take them. That means catching and throwing with the off hand for starters.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2023 Fall 2014/Summer 2015 -
There are kids from both the Honey Badgers and Bandits looking to go elsewhere. Sometimes the grass isn't greener on the other side, but its worth a look. The True Blue rising 4th grade 2023 team is apparently creating a buzz with new additions from other programs. I heard they have kids committed from other elite teams that will allow this team to be significantly better and compete. Tryouts will be exciting!

Honey Badger coaches are holding per-tryout practices for their team and they are opening it up to any rising 4th grader looking to join their team. I think it's a great idea to allow the kids a more intimate look instead of getting lost in the 100 's of kids at tryouts.

the reality check is there will be 100+ kids trying out for 8 spots. Your kid will get
limited opportunities to shine so will need to stand out when given the chance. Lots of variables. Last year the tryouts were very unorganized.

My son is more than happy as a Bandit. The 91 tryout is in another league compared to Express as far as organization and each kid getting a fair look. They did in two tryouts what Express needed 5 tryouts to do.

Been there already, express takes up to 10 new kids a year until about 5th grade and then starts narrowing it down to the 3-5 positions they need to fill. I know it's tough medicine for parents of express kids in the 3-4 grade, but express is not a feel good organization, they are all about winning. They will take bigger, tougher faster kids year after year, no loyalty. I am not putting them down, it's the right strategy to be the best but do so e sole searching, is your kid in the top 10 on the team? If not he will get cut this year or next.

Figured you were a Bandit Dad. Not a biased view at all, right?

LOL

Listen, if you want to be on a team where 5 kids never leave the field and you're one of the 5, great. If you aren't, you're a fool to stay. They are 3rd/4th graders. Sitting on the sideline is teaching them nothing. There were games when a Bandit player never got on the field after traveling 5 hours and paying for a hotel. You're paying for the other kids to get better. Wake up.

This is the time when your kid should be playing in games and learning lacrosse IQ, not just being on a winning team. What good does that do him if he never contributes to the wins?

Man, sometimes I wonder about the mentality of you parents.

Sure, because it's much easier when you have to take the 15 coaches kids and the kid who's Dad is so far up the coaches ARSH all you see is his tiny feet hanging out.

Unfortunately, you are correct this is the reality for 91 and Express. Difference is 91 gets there sooner, so if you think the "everyone plays" game plan for express is here to stay, ask around. And no, your team or coach isn't different. Express appears more welcoming at the 3rd grade level then each year they cut 8-10, unequal playing time until they get to the best 20 they can find, and only 13 play. Difference between 91 and express is 91 doesn't pretend, they do this at 3rd grade, express Does it over the course of 2 years.

Well, the one thing I've decided after reading this thread is that my son won't be trying out for either HB or Bandits. You're all insane. Don't you have more important things to worry about than 3rd/4th grade lacrosse? Anyone have any helpful suggestions/comments regarding any of the other organizations?

Don't let a FEW people pollute your views. The Badgers really have a great lax enviorment and the team is very good. And I say that honestly. My kid didn't start, but played enough. However, the development is off the charts. We practiced at least 50 times and the coaches are fully dedicated. I encourage you to draw your own conclusions. And without knowing anything about the Bandits I would say give them the benefit of the doubt as well. Ps this is travel lax you'll encounter crazy parents everywhere.

Are you kidding with the " we want you " slogan pre tryout. What are you The Marines ? That is the most pathetic action I've ever seen in this insane lacrosse world . This "boom" is going to burn out pretty much every kid by the time they are in 7th grade. The clubs don't care . They are laughing to the bank.

Parents, please have your sons play another sport. Stop specializing in only lax and your child will not only be better at lacrosse but will well rounded. Some of these programs are focusing too much on practice, practice, practice. Lacrosse used to be a spring sport!!!!!

It is a non obligatory practice to get kids ready for the tryout. Oh and by the way if you are interested in the team, your welcome as well. Everyone who has been through this wishes there was more of this from other teams. Again, completely voluntary.

Ok he told us at stony brook tournament he was going to be the head coach for the 2018 blue team. So I guess he is lieing to one of us. You are right this is a thread to inform people about true blue and that is what I am doing. They have made promises to us for 2 years.

Now B&E can run the 2023 anyway they want. I know why, but will let someone else bring that up.
At least one 2023 is returning.

The 91 & Express teams are already established, with maybe 3 or 4 spots open, with 100+ boys trying out.
Those respective teams deserve "A" status as they are.

Ok you let me know how that goes after next year. He should not. He should not be coaching little kids. He knows the game of lacrosse, but he is better with older kids. Plus I would be shocked that he is there the whole time during the season. As been said on here before that he has told other teams with true blue he is going to be the head coach to do damage control. None of us will know which team he is lied to intil next season is over. I am not sure if many parents including me are willing to see what happens. I feel bad for the 2 older teams he promised it is big year for them. I just think true blue doesn't have the depth of quality coaching compared to other clubs. They are depending on one person to do it all.

Not exactly the same thing, unless of course they were AA in both HS and College.

That said, take it on a case by case basis. Great coaches are great coaches, some were great players some were not. Base your opinion of the coach on how they coach, not on how they played.

So the Syosset guy who runs Igloo and was the manager of the HUB gets bounced for reasons a lot of lacrosse people know. Now they get another Syosset guy with ties to 91 to start a new club to help them out of their fiscal issues. Where do I sign up?

I just took that from their web page. My son was in a clinic there and I was speaking with George Powers about the Hurricanes. Thought he would be part of it but then heard he is express and wouldn't leave. Either way hurricanes seem like a last minute thought at this time to counteract Igloo for some reason. I don't know the back story. I just sense by the way one is offering all inclusive and the other breaking down what you get for the extra money.

He has his friend's Pequa kid and some of the other TB players that he grabbed to help him start the 2023 team. The rest is a crap shoot. Ironically, O'keefe and Alexander will be fighting for the Syosset kids. Good luck in the other grades.

Took my son to that LIT Blue Shark tryout and was very impressed with the program. We are hoping to be a part of this new first year age group and grow withe the coaches and other boys and parents for years to come. They had a great turnout considering it's a new team. One of the directors told me they were just a few players away from competing the roster. Hope some of you will come down this Saturday to see what they are all about. It would be nice to have a fresh start with a club that is all about development .

Good thing the Hurricanes got Okeffe's friend to bring the TB 2023 kids to get that team going. That might be their only single year team after the comically low turnout out tryouts. Have fun with that. Karma is a [lacrosse].

About 40 kids. Was on a different field so can't comment on quality
Igloo had 32 kids including their 1 goalie yesterday. All the kids that were there yesterday seemed good. At the end they seemed to break the kids up into group 1 and group 2. I am not sure if this was A players versus others, but the top players that I saw were put in the head coaches 4v3 drill. If they can get the top 20/23 players to play for them, then this team will be very competitive in this age group.

Warriors are a VERY good B team ... you should have a good experience. Plan on mostly local tourneys and Lax fest! lol....
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2023 Fall 2014/Summer 2015 -
Warriors had a lot of talent but lacked coaching last year so top players left early. The one coach they had was a very nice guy so people like stayed. This is understandable being the Bandits step brother and being the B team for the age group. However most families seem happy there for whatever reason. Promised an additional coach this year. If you are happy with the cost and what you get, it is a very good place to start.

Badgers beat 32 6-1 last year. And if you're referrring to the Badgers with that comment, it honestly is not true. Badgers playing time is very balanced and they move the ball.

From what I saw last year, bandits and badgers were the 2 elite team, with bandits having the upper hand. However, there are probably 5 teams that can challenge for that third spot. 32, outlaws, warriors, legacy and cudas. All depends on the changes that were/we're not made to the rosters. To say anything else before practice and tournaments would be a complete guess. Don't think empire is in the running yet because it didn't look like the talent level at tryouts was high enough yet. But they're brand new and a lot can change.

Lying cheats. I hope your kids enjoyed the stolen shirts. And did the guy who named the team pay any royalties to the company that makes the chillaxing clothing line? No? That would make them lying, stealing, cheats.

Two new teams with great coaching and tons of practice scheduled are Hurricanes and Empire. I give it two years before their coaching and upgrading kicks in to be power house teams. I love seeing good coaches building new teams to diversify the playing fields and stop the false team openings from large club teams by charging $100 to have 50+ kids tryout for a spot when there is none.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2023 Fall 2014/Summer 2015 -
I find it hard to believe that there were not openings on all of the teams for the right players. Bottom line is that in order to come onto an existing team that's been successful, a kid really has to be a standout and impress the coaches to the point that they believe that kid is worth getting rid of another kid on the already existing roster. I think a lot of people are guilty of wearing "parent goggles" and believe their kid is much better than what he or she really is.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2023 Fall 2014/Summer 2015 -
I have a feeling the 3rd spot isn't as up for grabs as you think. I heard 32 lost their best player to Igloo I'm sure that had something to do with what was posted earlier about coaches favoring their own kids

Too many kids that play 2023 that are exceptional are not true 4th graders. Most 4th graders are born in 2005, which is the actual birth year. You are finding more and more kids that are born in 2004, and in some cases 2003. Someone should patrol this and adjust the rules with a governing body. I'm sure USA lacrosse has rules in place and Long Island and most states do not follow. Kids will eventually catch up and I'm sure the 2004 kids were not held back for lax but kids who are older hold a tremendous advantage both physically and mentally. Play your age!!!

I agree with your comments - if you looked at the successful teams at this age group birth certificates you will see 2004 birthdates -it should be monitored like every other sport by DOB.

Hahaahaha shut up! You should of kept your kid at home instead of pushing them out the door. Stop your bitchin or go play baseball! We who hold our children back are well within the parameters of the rules. I don't think kids should be going to school so young and certainly don't like the fact that all you people with your PUNY kids play against my superior child!

My son and his best friend have been playing together for 5 years now. They have been in the same class several years and are both excellent lacrosse players. They tried out for the same travel club and made the team. My son's best fried was deemed not ready (socially or academically) to begin kindergarten with the boys his age and it was recommended that he wait till the following year to begin school. Naturally, his parents followed the advice of the professionals and held him back. On Long Island, travel clubs are grade based, not age. Say what you will about it, but that's just the way is. If you look at every team roster, you'll find a player that was held back. It's very common. It seems that parents only complain when that player is the best on the field. Just because the older boy on your team is mediocre doesn't absolve your team from the fact that they are playing an older child. Keep in mind, these clubs are adhering to the rules of the tournaments. Please, stop complaining about it and exaggerating this child's age to say that he should be in 6th or 7th grade. You seem foolish and petty.

Absolutely petty! How about taking on a real cause like world hunger or corporations buying our politicians. You seem outraged by something so minuscule. I can only imagine how hard you were hitting the keyboard as you punched out those three exclamation marks.

In regards to issues like world hunger or corporations buying politicians, this is a youth lacrosse board so I'm not sure what the relevance of that comment is. How do we know the original poster is not on other boards discussing those issues?

Personally, I would disagree that this is 'miniscule'. As far as youth lacrosse is concerned this is a very important topic. You might not have been at the Express or 91 tryouts but I can assure you that there were a few hundred other people at both of those, spending $100 a pop so that they might be lucky enough to pay those organizations in excess of $2,500 for their children to join their teams. This is a business and this is sports and this is competitive and when you put all of those things together, people will look for any edge they can find. If that edge is buying the latest equipment or taking their kids to private training or, dare I say it, holding their children back a year for reasons that have absolutely nothing to do with academics, guess what, they will do it. And by the way, if in the long run this potentially helps their sons not only get into a Duke or a Hopkins or a Notre Dame but also gets them scholarship money at those institutions and a network that will benefit their long term careers and social lives, that is a pretty huge incentive.

I understand the analogy of the child who is held back for academic or social reasons and I empathize with that situation, I'm sure it cannot be easy for the parents or the child to be faced with something like that. However, if we were just talking about a boy or two per team that would be one thing but this is pervasive and has become a part of the culture of the sport. I could name a dozen boys from my town alone who have been held back simply for lacrosse.

Finally, if age wasn’t an important issue then why do sports like soccer, baseball, hockey and football all bother with strict requirements? Lacrosse is the only sport where it is possible to have two children who are as much as 18 months apart competing in the same game. It’s one thing when they hit puberty but it’s quite another when they are 8, 9, 10 years old.

Feel free to bury your head in the sand and ignore it but don't try to diminish it to those of us who think it is a problem that needs to be addressed. If something as 'miniscule' as the Faceoff rule can be changed, then this can and should be changed as well.

I only once paid more then $1000 for summer of lax. My kids play a ton of lax all summer.

I'm not trying to give you a hard time but if you don't think that this is a significant issue in youth lacrosse then fine, that's your opinion. You should just recognize that a lot of people disagree with you.

In the example you gave where your 7th grade son competed against Varsity athletes, that was a conscious decision and everyone at the event knew what was going on. You and your son went into the event with the knowledge that older boys would be competing. There was no competitive advantage there, in fact it was probably looked on as a good thing: check out how well this 7th grader is doing against the varsity team!

That is a much different scenario than when you have a boy who turned 10 years old in June competing against 8 and 9 year olds at a 2023 tournament. The biggest issue I have with it, frankly, is from an evaluation standpoint. How do you know whether the 10 year old is doing well b/c he is legitimately talented or if he's really just an average player but he is older and more experienced? And vice versa for the 8 year old, maybe he is a better than average player but looks less than that b/c he is competing against bigger, stronger, faster boys.

As far as the $$$'s are concerned. Look at the list of team's on the right of this board. I don't think a single one of them cost less than $1,000 for the season. I'm not sure where your son is playing lax but it sure isn't on this Island.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2023 Fall 2014/Summer 2015 -
It's a much better approach this way then the triple exclamation point or the CHEATER! Routine . I understand your point but the rules are the rules as of now and I am very happy w them. My personal opinion is its not cut out for everyone and it thins the herd this way. Seperates the men from the boys. Its a violent sport and theres no crying on the lax field. Yes I know they are all boys at this age and don't care if you don't like it do something about it. Go play for TLI. Go start your own league or team. And really who's complaining here the over protective mom or the son? Kid probably doesn't give a hoot and just wants to play.

4th grade. No brainer. Would be the same answer if he was sept, oct or november
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2023 Fall 2014/Summer 2015 -
There are two consistent counters that people bring up whenever someone questions the current grade based system:

1. You are a whining baby whose son must stink. Tell your 8, 9, 10 year old boy to man up! Deal with it, life isn’t fair.
2. My son is in this grade and was born xxxx and we’re not cheating.

In regards to the first point, you’re probably right my son just needs to grow some hair on his chest and be a man. And yes, he does stink and I am a whiner so I guess you’re argument is right and mine is wrong.

As far as the second point goes, I am not calling out anybody for playing within the rules. I have absolutely no problem whatsoever with a parent of a 4th grader playing their son on a 2023 club. Those are the rules as they stand and I would never argue with anyone on that. I would only question why it is that the rules are set up like this? In a grade based system, you can have a child born in January 2004 competing against one born in October 2005 in a 2023 tournament. Why is it right to have a potentially 22 month age advantage over another boy? What is fair about that?

The problem with a grade based format vs an age based format is that grade based can be manipulated and let's not be naive, there are plenty of parents who make the decision to hold their children back just for lacrosse. Age based cannot be manipulated.

What is so unreasonable about going with the ‘U’ systems that so many other sports use? Children who are skilled enough to ‘play up’ would be allowed to but no one can ‘play down’. If you want to capture the ‘grade based’ ages, then simply make it based on a Dec 1 – Nov 30th year, which aligns with many of the New [lacrosse] State grade cutoffs.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2023 Fall 2014/Summer 2015 -
The 23 month scenario seems a little far fetched. But I suppose they are out there. Why not hold the October baby back ? What's the rush to get these kids into school for. If its a matter of not paying daycare or something like that let the kid repeat kindergarten. Sorry I just think the parent of the October baby is not looking out for the best interest of their child.

December 2004 in New [lacrosse] is a 4th grader. Most districts have a 12/1 cutoff.

Correct me if I am wrong, but the table below is from the US Lacrosse website.Isn't the difference between U11 and U9 potentially a 24 month difference? How does age based change anything?

2015 Age Grouping Quick Reference Table

Birthdate Age Bracket
Born on or after 9/1/1999 U15
Born on or after 9/1/2001 U13
Born on or after 9/1/2003 U11

This would make things worse. You could potentially have a team 2 grades higher playing you. US Laxcrosse would have to come up with something better then this before anyone would want to switch from grade based.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2023 Fall 2014/Summer 2015 -
Yeah, not sure of the logic behind the US Lacrosse age groupings but for some reason they chose to skip the 'even' years: U8, U10, U12 & U14. Add those in and all of a sudden we would have a very logical methodology for grouping our boys.

How many kids are two years older??? And if they are, why would they want to play with or against little kids? Statements like that ruin the credibility of your argument. Also, it's not cheating. You need a better rule. It is clearly within the rules. These are 8, 9, 10 year old kids. Settle down.

Does everything have to be about the Bandits? If you check the schedule they are in the U11 B bracket. Which is appropriate. How about posting useful information like good tournaments or clinics that your kid has been to.

2024 would play U9... 2023 playing in U11 will be playing against 2023 and 2024 teams. Bandits are a 2023 team. You know this, right? Possibly a typo... definitely not playing down. Use some common sense before spouting off your rhetoric please.

When you bring jr down to play you're not really playing up anymore are you


Bottom line is Bandits are 2023 (Spallina's Team) and Wolfpack 2024 (Aiello)...Bandits kids are 9... That is who is playing. Seems ok to me.

Do you believe everything you read? Did the poster check birth certificates? It is funny and yet sad at how many dads are obsessed with other peoples kids and assume things about them and put it out there in public- anonymously. Don't you think it strange for an adult to claim he knows the birthdates of all the players on a team? Think before believing. Lots of crap being spouted on this whole board and about half is true.

Great, so my kid who plays on a 2024 team and is born late 2007 will be playing against some 2003 kids in the same bracket ? Those parents should be ashamed of themselves. Wow, look at my kid and his team how good they are. No wonder.

Stop predicting scores of 9 year old lacrosse games buddy. The kids are in school right now focused on other things and you should be too. Your Bandits kid would be embarrassed if he knew that this is what you were doing on this Thursday afternoon and you should be too.

People like to rip the Bandits because those kids, for the most part, are better than the kids on every other team. Is the coach a lunatic? Absolutely. Do we travel too much? No doubt about it? Is is way too expensive? Probably. But tell me another 4th grade youth lacrosse team that has the opportunity to play for a coach with that kind of pedigree. Will it be worth it in the long run? I have no idea. But I think if he continues to grow as a player and is fortunate enough to stay on the team then he is getting the absolute best coaching available on the east coast.

Seriously??? He's an MLL coach, MLL coach of the year in 2012, and he brought Stonybrooks girls program from insignificant to #12 Nationally in D1. That's a pedigree. More importantly, the kids love him and respond to him. Your kid's coach is probably an assistant JV coach at a [lacrosse] HS. Get over it.

He is a fine youth lax coach but lets not get crazy about his pedigree. MLL coaching is a joke. Take a look at the distinguished lists of lizard coaches. Great he gets college girls to respond but I wouldn't put that in the impressive category.

As a Warrior parent for two years, I can tell you that they are GREATLY improved from last year! We're looking forward to a much more competitive season this spring. I am very impressed with the new additions and think we will be considered one of the top teams. Time and tourneys will tell.

All the 2023 teams had to move up or drop out. Why shouldn't they play up? B bracket and they played for two years as a team already. No real competition in this tournament bracket. A couple of the teams listed were just formed and this will be their very first tournament that they ever played in. They should win at least half the games. If not then they should find a new team.

Actually, there was a huge amount of turnover for the Warriors. 8 or 9 upgrades at various positions. Trying to gel with their fall practices. Very nice group of boys and parents seem very rational smile. Hoping to be competitive this year and build on it moving forward.

A: the reason the Warriors played up was because there was no 4th grade division B: you're correct, the didn't win A game, they won 3 including the Championship C: the next time you decide to open your mouth and knock 9 year old kids perhaps think twice. As Abraham Lincoln said "Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt."

Congrats to all of the boys who got out in the cold and played some great lacrosse! A special congrats goes out to the Warriors on the win. Say what you will about the teams they played, the fact remains that they played in, and won, a 5th grade bracket. For those of us who have played lax as youths, we know that playing against bigger and stronger kids in a very physical sport poses a unique set of challenges. The boys played very well and I look forward to an exciting season!

You should update the mustang classic directors. They must have mislabeled the 5th grade division the warriors were playing in.

Dude. Slow yourself down. They beat a 91 Stampede team, which is a developmental team that is made up of any kids who can correctly identify the difference between a lacrosse stick and a baseball bat. AND they beat this new Empire org which is also a 91 venture so that was most likely made of of the same "special" kids. Play a real team, then talk

Dude, I will slow down after the boys run you over as they hustle to congratulate their goalie!

You are a huge a-hole!

Two tries to diminish a win in the 5th grade bracket by these 4th grade boys. You are the worst kind of scum bucket. The kids know they are the second team at 91 in their age and still don't let it back them down, instead of trying to encourage them, you rip them, stating the wrong information, then when you get called out on it you just keep spouting BS and ripping more kids, I absolutely hate people like you who amuse themselves on the backs of 9 year olds. The best part of this post is that I am laughing about it, and the reason is that my son, who knows these boys, says you are just a loser whose own kid probably hates you!

Like I said... they beat bigger and stronger kids. 5th graders. And if you have even a light grip on reality you understand the difference that a year makes at their level. I'm not criticizing the teams that they played. Each team had some good players and some that are developing. What I AM saying is that the Warriors played very well and showed a lot of heart in the process. Your kid obviously lost or you wouldn't be commenting. Did he play for the Team LI team that the Warriors beat in the championship game???? I'm assuming, yes. See you in the spring.

Remember This when Outlaws beat Badgers, Outlaws Played 22 to 24 Kids. Its fall. Badgers are good, but not That good.

Outlaws played 22-24 players because its a money grab and the coach is laughing all the way to the bank!
If you are taking parents money, shouldn't you at least stick the kid in for a minute or two?

Wishfull thinking pal... there may be one or two kids from the current team on that team in 3 years, much less high school. Chances are, if you're not coaching or helping your kid will be gone soon. drink up.

Stop with the BS badgers are really good and better then last year. I heard they got some really good middies (jesters kid and bandit kid) and a really good attack man. And no I'm not a parent of the badgers. I have been watching this team but unfortunately my son isn't good enough to make it.

I love when people get on here and make a statement with no real solid foundation of information. We practice once a week. Twice leading up to a tournament to cover game plan. We never have a full team at any one practice because alot our kids play other sports. Regardless of all that; aren't we told Practice makes Perfect??? We are taught that if we practice, we perfect things. Not sure what the whole comment about practices is all about.

The Bandits will go 2-3 times a week when they can also. Take a page from 2 teams that are the best teams in the grade; PRACTICE. You are mostly annoyed that you don't practice enough. 3 or maybe 4 practices since tryouts is ridiculous. Not going to get better doing that. It showed.

I think it's great you feel that way. Every team who has not beaten the Bandits or Badgers should feel that way. They should never feel like they can't ever be good enough to catch the team ahead. If so, why try?

Today the 2 teams to beat are the Badgers and Bandits and no other team can say anything bad like criticize their practice/training methods until they can prove otherwise. Funny part about this whole discussion is that the coaches of these teams know that and have respect for one another and the boys they coach. It's uneducated or ill-informed parents who stir the pot and make the whole experience an unpleasant one.

Be happy for once.

and you know this how ???-probally another kid that didnt make the team- take a moment and call the director and speak to him (you probally wont) it only takes a minute, Check out their web site it has a list of commits( you still wont) or ask other players parents at a tournament how they feel about the program they are in (your probally to afraid to do so )

So great, you're with the right club. The one that does not practice alot. Badgers and Bandits have a different philosophy which is proven to be the right one based on past performance. It sounds as if you are a bit "Jealous" that they practice alot and you don't otherwise why care about it.

First you say you heard they got some really good kids. Then you say that you have been watching them because your son can't make the team. Maybe you should stop listening and watching little boys and concentrate on your own kid to make him better. But for some strange reason I think that your kid is either the jesters kid or bandit kid that they picked up. Get a life.

4th graders practicing lax 2-3/week in the fall? great for winning tournaments and being the top 4th grade team. not great for long term development. guarantee many of these kids will see lax as job before they get to HS. ask any college coach and they say they prefer multi-sport athletes. playing full time all year long starting in 3-4th grade? crazy

That's your opinion. Go look at the Canadians and Iroquois. Syracuse, Denver, and the other power houses know the truth. However, you can keep putting Johnny in basketball, soccer, football, ping pong, and shuffleboard. We'll see if he gets burnt first.

Holy crap you guy's or should I say children gotta get a grip grow up, the badgers won the game 5-3 so the better team won that game. The next game might be different but until that happens it is what it is badgers 1 outlaws 0.
Good luck to the teams in the future hope they play each other more because it was a good game.

Son plays for Empire and didn't really know what to expect. Proud of the way the boys competed with reallly not being together too long. Being down by only one at the half against the Express Badgers who's coach btw is an out of control lunatic who takes away from his team with his childish antics. Overall really encouraging after us being in a bad situation last year

How much practicing do your kids' teams do over the winter? Is there an extra fee or is it included in club costs?
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2023 Fall 2014/Summer 2015 -
As a town team I will try to get an outdoor practice all winter. (weather permitting) And one or two indoor in a gym plus one game typically every other week.
A club team will either have it incorporated in the cost or as an added extra fee. Depends on the club.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2023 Fall 2014/Summer 2015 -
The teams that practice usually practice at least once a week and there is usually an additional fee added to cover the costs of the indoor facility.

Thanks for the replies. Very helpful. My son's team didn't practice in the winter least year. They just had "elite training" sessions that were pretty expensive. This year, new team, and the coach is practicing weekly. I was just wondering if that was the norm. Thanks again.

It is the norm if you want to win right away....that way they come out of the box ready to go in the spring.

If you practice all winter as a team and in the spring your kids still lose, find a better team and more specifically another coach.

After completing several fall tournaments, how would you rank the teams in the 2023 bracket? We'll find out more in the spring, of course, but were there any teams that have improved or surprised anyone?

Thats a simple view. At this age a team with two or three studs can and will take over a game and win. That does not mean they are a great team or they have a great coach. Losing after practicing all winter happens. How good are the athletes? If you practice all winter and do not IMPROVE move on. Winning and losing is not the only barometer. If it is the one you use with 4th grade lacrosse you are a tool. Teams will change dramatically as more come out for travel. A coach that you enjoy and teaches should be much more important than winning this spring

You nailed it. 100%
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2023 Fall 2014/Summer 2015 -
These are not even really rankings. They are people's opinions. It's great entertainment. If you want real rankings take it from myhockeyrankings.com. See below. There is a formula that has to be done not peoples opinion. Try and have one of you gurus apply it to lax. Merry Christmas.




We receive emails weekly asking some variation of the questions, "why is my team ranked number x?" The answer is always the same, it's because of who you have played (SCHED) and how well you have done against that competition (AGD). It is that simple, but in a few instances teams may not be ranked properly because of error(s) in their list of recorded game scores. In this Did You Know, we will take a look at a team's rating/ranking from the perspective of the Math Page and how to identify possible errors.

First, let's be clear about where you can find the math page. The math page is accessed by clicking on the team details icon ()in the details column to the far right of every ranked/listed team. Once you click this and reach the team information page, you will see a table of game scores at the bottom of the page. Starting with the 2013-14 season, there are three tabs at the top of the scores box. The default/first tab is the simple listing of all the game scores. The second tab is the "Rating Math" tab, or what MYHockey refers to as the "Math Page". The third tab is the Last 10 Math page which shows you a modified version of the math page specific to a team's last ten games.

Who you play is essentially your strength of schedule. Mathematically, this is the average rating of each of your opponents. Assuming that your team has not had any games updated or deleted since the last weekly update, the SCHED is clearly displayed on the math page and is the bottom cell under "Opp Rating". This number should match your team's SCHED as found on the rankings page. If the number seems lower than it should be, I'd strongly encourage you to review all of your opponents and their ratings. It is possible that your game has been input against a weaker team from the club you played. For example, you may have played a club's "AA" team, but the game is entered against their "A" level team. Identifying the wrong opponent will not only make your team's rating incorrect, it might impact your entire league/division.

How well you do against your opponent is translated into your team's average goal differential or AGD. Using a maximum goal differential of +/- seven (7) for any single game, AGD is simply the average goal differential of all of your games. This column is found just to the left of the SCHED or Opp Rating column on the Math page and should once again match the number found in the rankings unless your team has had one or more game scores correction/removed since the last weekly update.

Your team's rating for any single game can be (and is) computed on the Math page. The Points column tells you how rating points your team earned for a given game and the +/- column tells you how much better or worse than your rating that performance was. In theory, all the +/- numbers average out to 0.00, but with rounding there can be a small residual number in this column at the bottom. You are encouraged to look through your games, especially at games were your team performed +/- 2.00 or more. These may have simply been good or bad performances, but it is also possible that these are games where your opponent has been incorrectly identified.

Let's say that you remember attended and remember a game your team played and thought it one or your team's better games, but you have a large (more than 2.00) negative number in the +/- column. As I indicated previously, this is a candidate for an erroneously identified opponent. If, by looking at the game, you know that the opponent is properly identified, not further research is needed, but if you are not sure, here is my suggestion. Click on the opponent's name. This will bring you to the opponent's team information page. Once there, see if there is a team website listed. If so, I encourage you to go to the team website and see if you can find any evidence of the game score or schedule being posted on the team website. Some team websites contain none of this information, but you are simply looking for anything that either positively confirms this is the correct opponent or pretty clearly indicates that the team played someone else at the same time or was in a completely different city on that day. If there is no team website listed and the team is part of a larger association as identified by MYHockey, then you will see the association name which is a link to the association information page. Click the link taking you to this page. Now see if you see additional teams at the age level you played. Virtually all associations have a website in MYHockey were you can then go and check out to see if you can find any additional information from the club website. Assuming you can't find any team schedules, there is one more trick we employ to try to ascertain the exact identity of an opponent. If you have access to the scoresheet from the game, you will have access to the opponent's head coaches name. Most association websites list their team coaches. You can try to use this information to match your exact opponent.

MYHockey has been doing the above research for more than a decade. Sometimes it is easy to find and confirm and opponent and sometimes we spend 30 minutes chasing a lot of dead ends. It's not always easy for a variety of reasons, but we encourage you to start with the above steps if you truly believe your team's rating/ranking is wrong. The Math page can be your jumping off point to researching potential issues and we encourage you to use it as such.

One last note on the subject. Your MYHockey rating/rankings is not typically a reflection of your team's best games this season. It is a mathematically computed average performance rating for all of your games. This includes both your best and worst performances of the season. For almost 99% of you, you will find opponents that you beat ranked higher than you and teams that you lost to ranked below you. Those things happen to virtually every team. Remember that you team rating/ranking is an average and will not reflect only your best performances.

question:
"How many of you have your boys in winter training (in addition to his team's weekly practice, if they're doing that)? I'm wondering if that's too much or just enough? Is his team in a winter league?"

answer:
I have my son on a team which practices 2 days a week all winter and I enter him in clinics to develop lax IQ. He's been doing this for a few years and I haven't found any burn out, only positive results. Hope that helps.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2023 Fall 2014/Summer 2015 -
Kids this young don't burn out now. It's around tenth grade that burn out happens if you want to call it that. I call it something that might happen. Every kid is different and because that is the age when they rebel they will use the term burn out and blame their parents for doing too much for them. If your kid is having fun and you get to spend quality time w him or her driving to practices and tourneys then ride it as long as you can.
My oldest a junior in college just left the sport this past year. It was fun while it lasted and honestly I didn't expect it to last this long. One thing I always told him and myself was that this may be the pinnacle of your lax career and being a pro gets paid squat to play your goal is to use the sport to create friendships and to open doors that May otherwise be closed. Enjoy the ride it goes quick. Talk to your kids now because in a few years they may not listen. Listen to your kids too they will tell you of its too much

Bandits only do it when they're playing up. As much as I think it's insane and unnecessary, they are still playing within the rules. The kids a 5th grade holdback. Should be in 6th but isn't. They didn't make the rules, but they certainly exploit the loopholes.

There's a lot of new teams with strong chemistry. The club scene is becoming very diversified and the playing fields are leveling.

Some teams are practicing twice a week or at least once a week with kids in various tournaments. These teams are getting stronger. The two little guys to watch though are the 91b Warriors and the Empire green team. Warriors even though a B team have been together 3 years now and could be a strong team since they practice a lot and have at least one new top recruit. Empire Green, the new program, have a lot of strong kids defense and offense .This was clear at MLK but they don't practice at all and the competition wasn't there. They also have too many kids on that team to develop the talent they have.

Great post.
Another team to look at is the new 91 team out of the Sports Hub called Hurricanes. The 4th grade team is their best. Its their first year and we'll see how the season unfolds. They've been playing up against 5th grade and have been winning.
Brian O'Keefe is the director so I'm sure the team will be a strong force for the future.

Thanks for the self promotion. I love the "4th grade team is their best". The rest of their teams are combined grade teams because they couldn't even field full grade teams other than the 4th grade team.

Great post.
Another team to look at is the new 91 team out of the Sports Hub called Hurricanes. The 4th grade team is their best. Its their first year and we'll see how the season unfolds. They've been playing up against 5th grade and have been winning.

At this age how can you compare teams (91) who practice year round to teams like (Empire) that haven't practice yet as a team? You really can't and shouldn't...

2023 empire green entered MLK tourney in 3/4 grade bracket and played mostly if not all 3rd graders. Sachem was all 3rd grade- other 2 teams were 2 town teams combined for each team. Play true 4th grade teams and then post your kudos.

Just looking at the talent with new clubs and know who the kids are and where they are from. Over time the plays, zones, etc will click. These new clubs in 4th grade have some great talent. It's a good grade for long island diversity!!

I Agree with the input regarding the Empire 4th grade green team. They look to have a good foundation with talented players all the way around. Although the competition was on the weaker side, you can see that this group can and will be one to reckon with once they build more chemistry with one another.

It would be great to see ALL of 91 Dynamic Sports Management teams play each other in scrimmages to get better. Hurricanes, Empire, Warriors, Bandits, 91 Westchester.

We've all seen how Igloo accepts kids because the parents know the evaluators. It will be fun to crush them and show them how a $3,000 annual team fee is useless.
Happy trails sucker!! See you in Maryland.

wish people would keep their opinions to themselves. When they speak out on behalf of a whole team you just make the team look foolish. Especially when you don't know anything at all because there are no actual facts to base anything on. Only time will tell. Leave it at that.

The poster is on this thread because maybe they want to help some obviously unbalanced individuals. You should pay some attention to folks who have kids who have been through youth lacrosse and moved up into HS and college. Their insight may bring some sanity to those not possessing any. Maybe their words will help your son as well who might just be sick of hearing his Mom and Dad talk so badly about other players and coaches.

thank you for possibly responding to yourself. I get it. there are unbalanced people on this thread. that is what you get when everything is anonymous. I find all of this completely useless as far as what is true and what is being embellished. Everyone has been there, done that. Kid is great. So on and so on. You are wasting your breath thinking people are going to stop acting like that. actually engaging in conversation is what fuels the fire of these individuals. This site will eventually fold because the lawsuits are going to be piling up once the laws catch up to social media libelous statements. My point is I have no idea if what you are saying is from experience or if it just sounds good. It's pretty obvious to a balanced person that we have a long way to go as far as who our kids will be playing with. Using the word insane may be true but it just fuels the fire. These tit for tat conversations on here are between people that already have a beef with one another. It's a cowardly way of harassing someone but no one really knows who is actually speaking. That's very dangerous because kids are on here too.

No, it's not. There is just a lot of bad blood between grown ups who act like children. Don't pretend you are just an innocent bystander trying to find out what's up. please don't insult the intelligence of some of us on here. It's an old tactic. Post something, respond to it yourself and act like you have followers.

Here's where your statement makes assumptions ....and you know what that makes...

"thank you for possibly responding to yourself. I get it. there are unbalanced people on this thread"....I posted the statement as a moderator and certainly didn't respond to myself.

" that is what you get when everything is anonymous."....Trust me you are NOT anonymous.

" This site will eventually fold because the lawsuits are going to be piling up once the laws catch up to social media libelous statements"....Maybe those making such statements will have an issue. BOTC will be fine thanks.

"It's a cowardly way of harassing someone but no one really knows who is actually speaking."......You couldn't be more wrong about not knowing who is actually posting. You yourself should register. At least you get to make a cool name.

Of course I am making assumptions, and I did register. I have nothing to hide. I'm simply stating people have no idea who they are talking to. It's what is wrong with this site. People should all register and disclose who they are. It would cut back on all the nonsense. Every time I go to a tournament or practice people are always talking about the bashing that goes on on BOTC. I simply say you can't trust a site where everyone is anonymous. There have been some horrible postings on here. I just saw another thread shut down because of it and reopen. I'm glad you are monitoring what is going on. People would never talk to each other this way if they were face to face or if they knew who they were talking to. It's just my opinion. It's none of anyone's business why a coach leaves or moves to a different organization but on a site like this they can hide behind anonymity. It's just asking for trouble if you ask me. Sorry if I offended you.

I just saw this also. I don't have a young one anymore. I was on here commenting about the weather at Shamrock. I have a few older boys and could add the same insight as this other poster. I do remember a little bit of name calling and club coach bashing in 4/5/6th grade but that does stop a bit.

Sure there will be some hold back conversations and a lunatic parent but For every lunatic parent there are 3 caring families that look over the group. for the most part this lacrosse scene on Li is a community, dare I say family.

You will see many of the boys who are good, self-declared better, for their age stay as good as the years go on. Sure a few come and go some grow at different rates. But the majority of the "players" remain the same.

The best part, the players become friends with each other and regardless their team or affiliation they appreciate each other, many relish the opportunity to play with, do clinics with, and play against each other.

Enjoy the ride, there is no right answer for every player. As the parent you need to know what is best for your child.

let's get real and stop smokin crack. Bandits and Badgers are the only 2 legit "A" teams in this grade. Igloo and Outlaws are thr only 2 "B" teams Everybody else are "C" teams at best. Yes, that means you lil 91 warrior team. You never come close to beating an A team. This is purely looking at Long Island because all you B and C teams would get your Asses kicked in Maryland.

10? isn't 2023 4th grade which is 9 turning 10, with a few 10 sprinkled in. Who cares about Maryland in 4th grade no need to go there until 6th grade

Who keeps putting Manhassett in with the top 4th grade teams? Not even close. They need to be the top PAL team in the grade first, which they are not.

A- Bandits will beat every 2023 and a few 2022 teams depending on the roster that day

B- Badgers will never beat the Bandits, will beat C and D 2023 teams and will never beat a solid 2022 team

C- Igloo, 91

I think the correct order is
A) Bandits (team 91)
B) Honey Badgers (Express)
C) Team 91: Hurricanes, Warriors, Empire
D) Igloo
E) Legacy

I guess your a 91 parent, How are Warriors and Empire on List when both lost to outlaws by 10 Goals
This is more like it
1) bandits
2) Honey
3) legacy/Outlaws/ Igloo

Badgers went to Maryland and beat a Bethesda Lacrosse Club team who had not lost a game in 3 years and who beat the Bandits in Baltimore the year before. Bandits and Badgers are evenly matched with talent this year. Their games will be battles. No other 4th grade teams come close.

They did less than a year ago at Lax Fest. Bandits won by a goal. Great game. No egos on either team, just very good players.

91 Warriors have not played the Outlaws this year. Wolfcrack parents are funny. 2023 teams will make them cry.

Wolfpack is only a 3rd grade team on paper. No competition there at all. They have played up all fall in every tourney they have been too. Stop the hate. Except for the Bandits and Badgers this team will give every team at the 4th grade level a run. Not that hard to believe that boys who are a grade below the 4th graders are be able to play with them. Team is legit, give the hate a rest.

Go back to 3rd grade wolf man and pump your chest there. Nobody in 4th grade cares about you posting on a 4th grade site. Go put on some pads and a helmet, bring your son to a field and have him play against you since there is no competition in 3rd grade.

Don't lump all 91 together. My son is a second year Warrior and I am thrilled with the way he's progressed. I'm definitely not comparing his team to any others. I just worry about he and his team.

They are a good team, no doubt, but 4th grade "B" division is not the same as 4th grade "A" division. And I'm not talking about the guys ranking the teams A,B,C,D or whatever. "A" divisions in tournaments host "A" teams, "B" divisions host "B" teams. To say there is only one "A" team is absurd. Most of the teams in those earlier rankings played up in tournaments all fall.

The Bandits lost to the BLC 2022 team the 2023 team did not play them= Bandits or Badgers competitively at all. I agree the Bandits and Badgers are ahead of the pack but speaking honestly the Bandits are leading the pack probably by a 4/5 goal margin.
Now BLC go back to the Maryland thread and convince them you are good. What tournaments are the Bandits attending this summer? Would like to see how many times we would get to play them.

They will give 2023 B teams (except 91's) a run, absolutely. The teams listed earlier are all of that club's A teams. Wolfpack would lose to all of them. Is Wolfpack going to play up in B divisions this year again?

Legacy will be at JDRF. Maybe Wolfpack will play in the A division. If not, you should probably just go away permanently.

Hofstra camp was last year also. Heard good things except for issue with traffic and getting there at night . I think session was at 5 or 6 pm. Sent my son to the younger Millon camp and definitely won't be going back. I guess the older ones are better. We were out in the hot sun for 4days . Medics or college kids sat passed out under tree oblivious .Bathroom was across the parking lot . All of the high profile athletes would stop by our group for 10 minutes and coach b would ask them about course load at college . Forgetting the audience was 8 years old and also some of the coaches were incoming freshman. So we learned nothing from miles jones or any other player. Then somewhere around day 3 Millon showed up and spent 10 minutes showing all 50 kids how to throw . Something all of them learned from their dads way before they got there. Again this was the youngest level but was extremely disappointing .

Please provide the basis for writing that a team was 'generally embarrassing towards the end of last year'. I think it's generally embarrassing that someone would write that about a group of 8 and 9 year olds. Since you know so much about their record, you should correct yourself and reference their 2 Fall tourney wins, Mr. Youth Lax stalker......

Fall schmall. Saw them get pounded by out.aws at stonybrook. Also saw them get beat up jdrf. They looked worse at the end of the year than the beginning. I get it, it's hard for the b teams to keep good players. Nobody wants to be on a b team

They are both 91 teams and coaches are close friends that have coached together. Maybe they don't want to stir the pot like some of the parents here. I am sure that if they really wanted to play each other, a simple phone call would be all it would take. Good luck to both teams this season. Lets all give it a rest and support these boys and let them enjoy their experience.

It is not all the parents- it is one or two- same for other teams and other clubs. We do not like the boasting and chest thumping, any better than any one else. Wish everyone would let the kids play and not be so critical of them, nor, boastful. Games are just games and teams change over time. If your kid is on an elite team as a younger player, I can guarantee you that team will change many times over before they even hit 8th grade. You say it will not, but it happens every time, just ask some families with older kids. Looking forward to the beginning of the lax season- hopefully with no snow and better temps!

Wow. Talk about someone looking to start some stuff. My son plays for Empire Green. I think we're a good team with a promising future. It's a little early for rankings, though. The Honey Badgers are still a ways away from us. And yes, we just lost a great game to the Warriors. We beat them once, but they responded when it mattered. I think we should all be looking forward to a very fun and competitive season! Good luck to all Empire, 91, Express, Legacy, Outlaws, Icon, Hurricanes and any other club I may have missed!

They tied until last 10 seconds of the game. Probably the only time ever Express parents were silent on BOTC ! They were not happy considering they practice 3 days a week and had a handful of tournaments under their belt. Lax season will be interesting for sure. There are a lot of very good teams out there!

Igloo won't even score next game. C team at best. Bandits are king of the Hill.

Well if they are a C team looks like Express is right there too.

I think Honey Badgers beat Empire 8-4 in Championship game at Mitchel Field. This game was right before the winter and right after tryouts. Again I think it was the same team because they played in Empire pennies and have a good defense but offensively. No points on the board with a lot of possession time. As for the Warriors this weekend they lost to Empire 4-2 first game. They tied in Championship game and then won in a Braveheart. Rank then how you want

Honey Badgers beat empire. Empire beat Warriors. Warriors beat Empire. Bandits beat everyone. Hurricanes will take everyone by surprise. Legacy will beat Igloo. Igloo will never score a goal again. Outlaws beat Badgers 3 years ago. Wolfpack will beat everyone but Bandits. That sound right to everyone?

Okay...I believe the Bandits lost once in two years in grade, to BLC. And the Badgers haven't lost in the grade in two years, except for the losses to the Bandits. After that the Outlaws have played the Badgers the toughest. This doesn't include when the teams have played up, in grade competition.

2023 is travel, with Igloo and Honey Badgers thrown in if there are no conflicts. Greenwich Warriors played Elwood and they're a travel team. That's OK, though? Trust me, I know that Huntington had ringers play for them, Plainedge had ringers play for them and Happaugue had an extra. You can't trust anyone. I don't understand it and never will. How can you take pride in a win (or loss, as most of the teams mentioned did) if you're bringing in kids that you didn't coach and sitting kids that you did? If nothing else, those coaches are teaching the kids at a very early age that it's ok to win at any cost. It's shameful.

As the coach of the Plainedge team, I'll take the "ringer" comment as a compliment! We have several boys that are developing in to great lacrosse players and great young men! All of the boys except for one that played this past weekend has been coached by me since K or 1st grade! We asked one player to come and play for us because we had several boys back out at the last minute to go to soccer Cup games. The guest player was there to let my regular players get a breather when needed and was not even one of my top players on the field. We played 3 games with only 3 subs and the championship game with just 1 sub against Greenwich that combined their two teams for the game. The boys played very well this past weekend and they work very hard in practice to get their skills better each week! I even called the tournament directors and asked if I could bring a guest player as we had been in danger of not being able to field a complete team at one point. They told me no problem, I could of grabbed a ringer, but I didn't, I grabbed a player that a couple of our kids are friends with and asked if he could help out.

Oh yeah, by the way that guest player is a 3rd grader from Plainedge!

"Anonymous" check your facts before you throw out BS and take away from the hard work of 8,9, and 10 year olds. I coach kids so they can grow on and off the field. My self and my assistant coaches take great pride in how we coach our boys and the growth they have shown. We have a great group of boys that enjoy playing together and we play throughout the year in winter leagues and play as many tournaments as our schedules allow.

We actually don't subscribe to that win at all costs mentality, as last year I pulled our team off the field in a championship game because the game was getting out of control, with the other team taking cheap shots at players off ball and the ref had lost control of the game!

Thanks

Plainedge should be in division 1 if they have 4 to 5 travel players. Kudos to your coaching and development. Job well done! No athlete should ever play down an age bracket unless players are missing and you cannot continue play and its okay with the opposing team. Even then, this is still technically wrong.

Plainedge has a great team. They should be playing the A division. Its not an insult but that's why divisions are based on level of play. Since PAL doesn't card players like soccer its tough to tell who is what age.

I'd like to hear what Plainedge coach has to say about having an out of town 5th grader playing on his team in a 4th grade town tourny. Before you answer coach, remember, there were photographers there and the team pictures are online at the Graphic Athletics website. I can tell you which one he is if you want. Top row, second from the right. 5th grade Sachem kid. Liar.

It doesn't take much to be a travel player now a days. All you need to do is write a check. We played them last year in PAL and they have some kids that are good and about 10 that are not so good yet. They got placed in the 4th division last year and moved up this year. If they have another good year they will probably move up again. Plainedge is not known for lacrosse, it's been a baseball and soccer town traditional. PAL placed them where history told them to. They only seem to have 1 team per grade.

Plainedge is a solid team. My team played them in last year's finals at Elwood and in the Koehler tournament. Great games every time and, although things we're a bit heated the first time around, the coaches are real good guys and they have their boys playing hard. Whether they brought in someone because of low numbers or not, I still think they play quality lacrosse.

You know some people on here, want to get some lacrosse information.
There is once in awhile some useful information for regular people, who have jobs, like myself,who are is unable to talk lacrosse all day on message boards.Then there is a whole set of other people who have nothing to do but be [lacrosse] stirrers. My kid has nothing to do with plainedge lacrosse. The guy who pointed out the row, and kid in that photo. If you are wrong about his age and grade. You should really just stay off these boards. Posting about a kid, is wrong, especially when your information is wrong. Guys like you make me sick.

I'm sorry to tell Mr. detective but the kid of which you speak is without a doubt in 4th grade. You are correct that he plays on the 5th grade syag team so you will see him tomorrow at the tournament. I hope you are just as quick to apologize to the Plainedge coach as you were to accuse him of lying and cheating. As a friend of the coach you are insulting I can tell you he is very respectful of the game and other teams and certainly not a lier. While i'm sure your baseless accusation bothers him unlike you he can show proof. Please do not try to reply with some more BS. You are wrong just except it and move on.

As a friend of the coach you are insulting I can tell you he is very respectful of the game and other teams and certainly not a lier. While i'm sure your baseless accusation bothers him unlike you he can show proof. Please do not try to reply with some more BS. You are wrong just except it and move on.


Is the kid from Plainedge? If not, he cheated.


Your team obviously lost to Plainedge. Let it go.

Your right. My son's team did lose to them. And why should they get robbed of a victory becuase they played fairly? We all know that at this age one or two kids can make a big difference especially if their good enough to be playing up. I'm sorry for thinking that a kid playing on a fifth grade team was a fifth grader but he still was brought in to win. How can that be ok?

I agree. win with Class. win with dignity. Lose win class. lose with dignity
Lacrosse has no ETHICAL standards at all. Win at any/all cost

Wow, you are all starting the complaining very early...It didn't start this early in the 2018 group. We had the normal express/91 who is better conversations but the cheating accusations didn't start until we started playing the MD and Philly kids that were reclassed...

Tournament wins are still for t-shirts or are they handing out $ these days?

Take a break, enjoy watching your kids have fun. It only gets more competitive when the college scouts start roaming the sideline the summer after 8th grade. Then not only will you complain about the MD/Philly crowd, you will complain about kids playing time as you can't get recruited if your kid is sitting on the bench!

But there is some good news-the traffic in Jersey should be much better this summer with the inclusion of the extra lanes

Our town has played them before and I saw them at Elwood. They had to be missing at least 3 or 4 of their normal players. The coach even said the tournament had him in the wrong bracket, but it worked out because he didn't have enough to run with some of the other towns. He even said he had to bring up a 3rd grader and grab a player who is friends with some of the boys. He said he spoke to the tournament first and got the Ok or he would of had to drop out of the tournament last minute.
They had one of their kids that scored 4 or 5 goals on us playing goalie in the game I saw. The coaches are good guys and they make sure the kids are having fun.
A kid playing on a fifth grade team because they are light on numbers doesn't mean he is an all star. It just means that they need a body.

BANDITS SUCK
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2023 Fall 2014/Summer 2015 -
This sight is great! It's my first time on and it's like watching a crappy reality series like real housewives or something. These are kids playing a kids sport. Most of the comments on this website sound like they are coming from parents who are waaaaay over the top when it comes to having to win. These kids are ten. Elementary school. Let the kids be kids and stop the yelling. Be happy that your kid has a lacrosse stick in his hand rather than a video game. Mine plays on a travel team as well as his PAL team. When he plays PAL he wears his travel helmet because it's just dumb to buy an extra helmet just so parents won't bash my kid for being a "ringer". tThere are so many travel teams out there that it's not hard to find someone willing to take your check. Every kid can be a travel kid. Some are better than others. These "ringers" are still just ten. Stop putting so much pressure on these kids!

Hurricanes 4th is 91 Nassau County, and Empire is 91 Eastern Suffolk. Both very good new teams. It'll be interesting to see how things unfold.

That defies all logic. They are clearly the 2 best teams and they need to play each other. Otherwise, this tournament is a joke and loses all credibility. If this is a 91 run tournament, and I expect it is, then they clearly don't want to risk the Bandits losing to (or at least playing a game that it too close) the Honey Badgers. Pathetic.

I think Express wants to play the Bandits. I don't think the Bandits want to play Express. It's a lose-lose for them. With all of the hype around them, they can't afford for it to even be close, much less lose. I'm not saying they WOULD lose, mind you... just saying they don't want to take the chance.

Not true. But even if it was, I guess they want a shot at Legacy's B team, Empire's B team, Mama's Boyz 3rd/4th grade team and Hurricanes 3rd/4th grade team? That would leave Bandits, Badgers, Hurricanes and Thunder in the A. This way it could be set up for 91 to win the 4th grade A & B brackets (if Wolfpack could pull it off)? That would be fine, as long as Bandits nut-up and play Express.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2023 Fall 2014/Summer 2015 -
These brackets are a joke. The outcome is already clear so why bother playing. This is def a 91 run tourney. It's very obvious now why Bandits won't play express. They are afraid to lose their seat at the top! How embarrassing. Who wants to watch Express A beat up on 3 rd graders ! I don't even think they want to do that. This tournament has lost a lot of credibility.

It's on Tourney Machine. Badgers and Bandits will play each other because the Pack is playing the developmental teams.

91 Bandits and Express HB arent even in the same category. Game would not be close, expect that 91 Bandits would blow them out. Talent levels on the two teams are not comparable. Laughable to think 91 Bandits would not want to play Express HB.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2023 Fall 2014/Summer 2015 -
Bandits got crushed when they tried to play up a few weeks ago so probably just not feeling quite ready for prime time right now. They have taken the most challenging competition in the tournament excluding the Badgers. I guess if it is their tournament they will do what they think is in their best interest, which is not to play the Badgers right now until they feel better about their team. Too bad.

Well it's a 91 run tourney and they are not playing. On top of that they made it two 4 team division with 2x champ games so there is no chance of them playing in a champ game. What gives? The 2025/24 division also has 8 teams and there is only 1 division/champ game.

They're both 10 year old boy's lacrosse teams right? That would make them the same category. Unless, of course, Spalina's son from Crush comes down to play like he usually does. Then, you're right, not even the same category.

Not true? As of right now it is true. Don't bet your money. You were wrong about lineup also. They know who is ranked where by controlling the tournaments and having the results. But have to agree it is obviously setup up for 91 to win A and B. At least getting a 3 rd grade team to the Championship game. Bandits are the Bandits. They didn't get thier name by not playing.

Hey Bandits parents - maybe you will win on saturday, maybe the Badgers will win. either way, look at how well coached the HB are. JS does not care about your kids unless you are one of his "chosen" stars on 1st line while HB will run 3 lines and all the boys will play plenty. For all on the Bandits 2nd lines - you are welcome to come down and tryout for HB and would be welcomed with open arms. For that matter, there is also Igloo for any of your Nassau kids or Empire for any of your Suffolk kids. Simply point this out for you to consider as you are watching the game and JS is ignoring your son while he only concentrates on the 1st line. I heard something about custom gloves for some of the players on the team - wonder how many boys on the Bandits 2nd line were asked if they were interested in custom gloves. very classy guys!

Practices are in Dix Hills at a few locations but all within 5 minutes of St Anthony's.

They have kids from as far South/East as West Islip, as far North/West as Port Wash/ Manhassett, as far South/West as Merrick and 3 kids from the city. If that doesn't tell you something about the experience those coaches are providing, nothing will. The Parents are great, all the kids hang out together etc... Very very well run.

It tells us a few things
1. There are very few choices for 9-10 year old's to play.
2. LI is full of very qualified lax coaches, and in the next few years kids and their parents will have plenty of quality clubs to choose from.
3. As good players try out for travel for the first time, its best to AVOID established teams like express and 91. Parents have put in a few years and the drama is over the top. And taking playing time from an established player or the coaches kids is very difficult. Those coaches got in early to protect their son's and his friends.
4. more quality clubs will give more travel benefits, plenty of great players can choose to play closer to home.. its worth it
5. There is zero chance ALL the kids on these two teams will make it the long haul. zero.

Love it when people call out individuals by name on this site but do so hidding behind an Anonymous ID. Should be a rule that if you want to call someone out; show face and stop being chicken [lacrosse].

This is 4th grade lacrosse you maniacs. Can you just let the teams play?

Jealousy is an ugly thing.

Who gets the most hate on this thread?
Bandits and their coach
Badgers and their coach

If everyone else concentrated on getting their own kids better maybe then your son and his team could compete with the above teams.
There is a reason why hundreds go to 91 and express tryouts and other clubs are begging on this site for people to join them mid spring.

100's go to your tryouts, yet you only take 2-3 kids for your A team and you try to field a B team with the next 20 kids. Then, these 20 kids decide to play somewhere else, and the team 2 coaches scramble to get last years kids back. Whomever is jealous of that has issues.

These are 9-10 year old kids. The A team model probably is not great for these boys and their developing bodies. Ten year old skeletons aren't built to practice 3-4 times a week and then play 3 games on Sat and Sun. Their bones are still soft. Growth plates get injured. Joints get sprained. And, then you'll have a kid with a chronic condition.

If you cut my kid in 2012, 2013 and 2014 and I keep coming back then I have a problem. I know that even if my kid is the next Paul Rabil and crushes it at tryouts, he may not make it. The A team game has become more about politics then ability -- especially on LI.

My kid will get better. I will make sure he studies harder then yours. My B kid has fun playing lacrosse. I do wish he was playing on an elite level team, but 9/10 year old kids just want to have fun.

So, there are two 2023 AA teams on Long Island (HB & Bandits) and one or two legit A teams (Igloo and Empire). That adds up to 85-90 kids in total. If teams only take 3-4 new kids every year, then that means there are only 12-15 spots available in the fall. Slim pickings.

This is the story. Come September, my kid is going to bring it. He will bust his hump and get as many groundballs as he can. He will try to put as many as he can in the back of the net and play tenacious D. I know the deal though. The illusion of playing for the big boys will always be there, but I have taught him otherwise. Right now, skill does count, but it isn't the only factor. This is the problem with the Club scene.

If it unfolds this way for your kid, they will find him. These coaches want and need to win to feed their own and the Club ego. Good luck!

Obviously this is an Empire coach or parent, or both.
Sorry, but Empire is not the next class down along with Igloo. Since you haven't seen every team in 2023 yet, then it doesn't make sense to state fictitious statements!

'Tied in regulation, only to lose in a Braveheart' means they lost.

So, if you lost to 91's B team, please enlighten us to how that makes them an A team?

Figured someone would take the bait. That was too easy.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2023 Fall 2014/Summer 2015 -
I don't think there is another sport with as many excuses as Lacrosse. Did Empire beat 91 in the championship? It appears not. Get them next time. Someone always has some way of saying they didn't lose or shouldn't have lost. Whatever team you had that day lost to whatever team they had end of story. This is also a great example of why You should never tell parents "We are the A team". Wait until you have a couple of tournaments under your belt so you know what your up against.

From 2nd grade to 3rd grade Badgers took 12 New kids
From 2nd grade to current 4th grsde Badgers took 7 New kids

How can you say they don't provide opportunities for kids to make the team during tryouts. Do they get it right all the time, no. As a matter of fact, kids 19 through 22 on a 24 kid roster(minus 2 goalies) are a flip of a coin.

They take the best kids.

Haha...they won the 3 team C- division and played a 2024 team 2 out of their 3 games, losing one. If you call that looking strong you have issues. Without the Badger middies they had no shot at beating the 2024 Pack, let alone any of the teams in the 2023 A division. Remember, the rules clearly state that kids can only play for one team so you basically cheated. Enjoy your paper championship.

I think we all know the Bandits, who were 4-0 and beat the Badgers twice were the real 2023 champs.

That may be true but were there kids that played on Badgers and SST?? If the coach added kids from another team in the same age bracket, just for the final game, then that's wrong. Plus imagine being one of the kids sitting on the sidelines watching when they could have been playing.

Oh please! Wolfpack dad... Your kid is a year younger. They're not a competitive 2023 team. Be happy that you're the best 2024 team. That should be good enough, no? Most 2023 teams will beat them. That's a fact. Accept it.

SS Thunder had Badgers with them at Shamrock and still got whooped by Empire and Warriors and maybe even Hurricanes. Doesn't mean anything. Pack tears are the worst kind.

Why do 91 teams stack brackets or manipulate them to favor themselves? Wolfpack should have played their age. They lost to 4th graders and that's not something to be ashamed of. They are a very good 3rd grade team even though half of them are born in 2005.

True. They rushed off the field after taking a spanking from the Bandits. Switched uniforms and played the championship game with SST. Who knows if they are legit on SST roster. Didn't think kids could play on 2 different rosters. Wonder how Express coaches feel about that.

It's actually fairly common and completely legit. Even with the Badger players they are a mid level 2023 team. Wolfpack has kids that play with other teams too. You Pack Rats should really stop your whining. It's poor sportsmanship.

C'mon guy. You know that's a lie. His kid does it often, but only when they play up in 5th grade divisions, which is most of the time.

The tournament is over people. Let it go. SST knows what they did to win the final game against the WolfPack. Outplayed 6-4 in the first game and then in the finals a completely different team shows up and wins? Ask the parents and Coaches and they lie about it. Classy. The Wolfpack should be proud, they forced a year older team to grab some Badgers and win the final. Great job SST, you did it! Enjoy the T shirts

Bitter Pack Dad. The first time they played you they were missing players because they were playing on another team. Take your 3-4 best players away and see how you do. They always play with Badgers. Igloo too. And they're still a middle of the road team even with them. Your team is just not as good as you think. Great 3rd grade team. Sub-par against older kids. Nothing to be ashamed of, just be a little humble about it.

It's not cheating. They have kids that play for multiple teams. There's nothing wrong with that. If a parent wants to pay for 2 teams then so be it. It may be crazy and wasteful, but it's not breaking any rules. When they played in Shamrock they had their Badgers. They were ok, but they lost to Empire by a few and Warriors by a few more. I think they may have beaten Greenwich Warriors (who lost to a bunch of town teams at the Elwood Classic). I have no problem with them carrying those kids. Even when their Igloo and HB kids play, they are still a third tier team in the 2023 class.

Just because they lost the first time and won the second doesnt mean they cheated. It happens all the time. It happened at the last tournamnet my son played in. The coach knew they would be playing the same team in the finals and played some of his top kids less the first time they played and played them more in the finals and won. It's about coaching and strategy.

Did you see that division. I will tell you for a fact that my son's PAL team would have swept that bracket. I doubt any games would even be close. They have nothing to be proud of. 7 of the Pack's starters are 10 years old anyway.

That is correct...pro player rules clearly state that you can not play for 2 different teams during the tourney. SST clearly had Badgers ...SST clearly cheated. It is what it is. I'm sure their director knew they were cheating but must have wanted a tee shirt.

for a local tournament you should be able to play for your Town and your travel. This lessens any animosity for the players and payers a best of both worlds situation.

if the town is not your town your cheating; if you play on two travel teams pick one (unless in two different divisions), if not youre cheating; But if you play on your travel and your town it should be all good (if age appropriate).
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2023 Fall 2014/Summer 2015 -
These tournaments are going to lose all credibility with the level of cheating and rule breaking. It will come a point when teams won't sign up for 91 tourneys because they don't enforce the rules and brackets are rigged. Better off in a tournament for charity --- seems less of that nonsense goes on because no ones paycheck is affected by the outcome.

Wolfpack was in a 4 th grade bracket so the fact 7 of their kids are 4 th graders shouldn't be a surprise or considered cheating. SST broke the rules and WP should be credited with the bracket win.

Why would any parent want to pay/play their kids on two travel teams? I've heard of pal/travel but never travel/travel. I don't get it. To each his own. I guess it happens but NO WAY should a kid play on 2 teams at the same tournament. South Shore Thunder should be banned from all mylacrossetournaments.

The sad thing is that my son came home from Pro Player wishing he was a Bandit so that he would get notoriety. It took me an entire Sunday to teach him that those boys will be burnt out by college and never play again, or enter college and play top 5 D1 and never achieve their true potential when they graduate and enter the work force.

20-5 sounds about right. But that's not the bracket I'm talking about.

That's a bit of a stretch. There is no quantifiable evidence to support this. It pure conjecture. Some kids just love it and want it more than others. My kid would get burnt out in a week. 3x a week for 8-9 months is too much for him. But damn those kids are good.

It's not new SST dad but it is against the rules...all 4 teams CHEATED if they had kids play for multiple teams. Might as well teach the kids early that if you cheat you might get a tee shirt. That will serve them well in the game of life.

Man, the same post over and over. Its 9, 10 , yr old lacrosse. Your kid is in school rite now, not thinking about proplayer tournament. In a few hours, he will have lunch with his friends and play at recess. He don't care about saturdays games. Its the pathetic few dads, who just can't function normally because their sons team didn't win a lacrosse tournament. Maybe the 8 grand offer they were hoping to get in 9 yrs from a division 1 college, will now be off the table because they lost a game at the 2015 pro player tournament.

I believe the point was stop whining about your B bracket and your PAL team that would compete and just shut up. BTW - just laughable that you think any PAL team would score ANY goals against 91 Bandits. May I remind you that Express HB which is comprised of many of the best PAL players from across LI struggled to score just 2 goals against Bandits in a 40 minute game. Good luck with your delusions.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2023 Fall 2014/Summer 2015 -
I love it when idiots like you make that argument with the dream that your B kid will be the man in high school because top A players like boys on 91 Bandits will be burnt out or fall off. Truth is (and I'll grant you a few Bandits will likely stop playing to pursue other interests) the majority of 91 Bandits though will continue to easily dominate the weak B players that are being told to wait for your time because they will fall off. Some constructive advice, rather than tell your boy to "just wait" how about telling him to grab his stick, go outside and practice to improve because if you are waiting for players to simply fall off, worst advice ever. BTW - can I borrow your crystal ball - I know you dont believe any of the 91 Bandits will achive their full potential in the work force but I'd like to remove the mystery and see what my 10yo will be doing so I dont have to be curious for the next 15 years.

I don't have a kid on HB or SST. I just want all of you Wolfpack old women to shut the [lacrosse] up about your great team. You're on a 2023 thread talking about how much better your son's team is than all 2023 teams except HB and Bandits. Clearly, last Saturday was a harsh wake-up call for you because you won't let it go. I watched the SST with their Igloo and HB kids get smacked all over the field by some 2023 teams last tournament. They're just not that good. I get it. You wanted to win so you could come on here and boast about how your 3rd grade team beat up a weak 4th grade bracket. But you lost to a team that most 4th grade teams can beat (even with the HB's) and now you realize that your son's team is just a really good 3rd grade team. I feel sorry for your son that it's not enough for you.

You know what's worse? Watching a 9/10 year old get screamed at by a Bandit coach for letting up a goal because he slid to late and the other team got a goal (I saw it in Pennsylvania last year). Now that's awesome. Maybe you teach your Bandit those values, and then he gets beat up on the playground for being an a$$.

Helping out when he can and coaching are completely different. He was there mainly because JS was late. You conspiracy theory has more holes than swiss cheese.

I don't have a kid on HB or SST. I just want all of you Wolfpack old women to shut the [lacrosse] up about your great team. You're on a 2023 thread talking about how much better your son's team is than all 2023 teams except HB and Bandits. Clearly, last Saturday was a harsh wake-up call for you because you won't let it go. I watched the SST with their Igloo and HB kids get smacked all over the field by some 2023 teams last tournament. They're just not that good. I get it. You wanted to win so you could come on here and boast about how your 3rd grade team beat up a weak 4th grade bracket. But you lost to a team that most 4th grade teams can beat (even with the HB's) and now you realize that your son's team is just a really good 3rd grade team. I feel sorry for your son that it's not enough for you. [/quote]

Why is it OK to cheat? Under any circumstances? Pointing that cheating out makes people old women? I know this old woman wants to see the kids play with spirit and honor. That is not what happened and I'm certainly not reading that here. And you wouldn't be such tough guys if we were standing next to each other at a game, I can assure you of that.

I need to add my two cents. This tournament did not notify any teams that a team cancelled at the last minute and their opponents missed out on playing the allotted games. Let's also discuss the bandits moving from one bracket to the other and then agreeing to play the game vs HB as the final. This reasoning short changed kids playing time and no one from pro player took responsibility. Let's get it straight, youth lacrosse has no governing body and no real rules to follow. There are no suspensions or even sportsmanship code of conducts for players or parents. It's about the money!!! It's always about the money. Tournaments for charity are a no brainier and go to a good cause not in the pocket!!!

I don't know what the big fuss about SST is about. They are primarily a bellmore pal team with a couple of kids from another town. They barely practice together and still compete with most teams . Most teams practice 3 times a week. Check there roster all the kids that play belong on the team . Poor 91 Wolfpack . Play 3rd graders and you will win .

It was all about Bandits vs Honey Badgers. The Honey Badgers got destroyed and you haven't heard a word from Express. It never lived up to the hype that the Honey Badgers self promoted! It was a JOKE.

Mamas Boyz and Bandits were in the same bracket. The times of those games would make it impossible to play on both teams. Maybe a kid had a helmet from last year --- but impossible for it to be a Bandit

Do you know why Mama's Boyz forfeited and didn't play the Bandits?
Was it because there were bandits on that team?

Probably because HB beat them by 15 and Bandits beat HB by a bunch = mess if they played by look on tourney machine

They played the 3 games they were told to play that day. Some of us only had two games because a team backed out so the schedule changed that day. The championship game between bandits and HB was set before most teams played their second game.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2023 Fall 2014/Summer 2015 -
The schedule was ammended so that Mamas Boys could play Legacy. Legacy would have missed a game because of the Hurricanes 3/4 team not showing up. Mama's boys would have been destroyed by the Bandits and it was a good solution. The Boys got to have a successful day and no team had to play Bandits and Honey Badgers.

no really caps lock king. already overdoing it on the coffee. i heard it from a friend who's son is on the team. he also mentioned the other teams weren't very good if that makes you feel better. if you knew anything you would know going 3-0 with the mix of teams there isn't necessarily a huge accomplishment, it's a good job by the team. thanks for you input though.

Second that. The helmet hits were out of control. And after one Express player hit an opposing player in the head-- when he went to the penalty box the Express coach smiled and congratulated him on a job well done. It's too bad because they are a very good team but their skill and ability are being overshadowed by dirty antics. They could play a clean respectable game and still blow teams away. Unfortunate they choose to tarnish the sport of lacrosse with cheap shots when the refs aren't looking. They deserve a good beat down by the Bandits. Again!

Badgers play very physical, nothing wrong with that considering it's a physical sport. Thay have kids who are not afraid to hit. Refs control the penalties and they play a man down if there is a penalty. It's part of the game folks. Get use to it because it only gets worse. Badgers are a very talented team who happen to play a physical game as well. It's obviously working because they can't be beat.

Nope, I'm a different parent the previous email and saw it myself.
I hope we never play the Badgers again, but would love to watch them get crushed like they did by the Bandits in Pro Player. Saw the whole game and loved it. Maybe Bob and Joe with their attitude towards allowing their kids to hurt people can get a little humility again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Last I checked at no level of lacrosse (not even college) is a player allowed to smash an opposing player in the back of the helmet with a stick. Or wind up and slash a player in the back of the knees when he doesn't even have the ball. That's not physical. It's cheap. Trying to take out the best players of opposing teams by injuring them. That's pathetic fear. And there were few penalties given because coincidentally the ref is looking in the other direction where the play is going on.
Bandits spank the Badgers on pure skill. Too classy to serve you a dose of what you really deserve ! Sending you home crying because you didn't win a shirt is just as good though!!

Bandits spank the Badgers on pure skill. Too classy to serve you a dose of what you really deserve ! Sending you home crying because you didn't win a shirt is just as good though!!


Yes it is allowed as long as the referee doesn't see it.

Badgers play very physical, nothing wrong with that considering it's a physical sport. Thay have kids who are not afraid to hit. Refs control the penalties and they play a man down if there is a penalty. It's part of the game folks. Get use to it because it only gets worse. Badgers are a very talented team who happen to play a physical game as well. It's obviously working because they can't be beat.

It's dirty loser, and you love watching it go on. I only wish my kid went to school with some of the "usual" cheap shot kids they'd get a beat down, but it would only be a harmless physical lunch break.


Don't kid yourself; your boy is getting his a$$ kicked on school too. Just like you did when you were 10. Like Father like son. LOL

OK, enough of the Badgers. They are very good. It sucks to lose. How did the rest of the teams do? Not against HB, but each other? Outlaws, Hurricanes, Legacy? I heard that the 10 year old grade Wolfpack team played also, how'd they do?

My 10 year old is actually an amateur wrestler and boxer. He can kick your 1 cheap shot defender as well as the slasher midfielders a$$'s off the field. So remember that tough guy Badger. And one other thing.... even though my son can kick any of your kids a$$'s during a game, he has never been taught to cheap shot anybody. He has class and sportsmanship values. Weasels lack both.

Enough already...
No one is coaching 9/10 year olds to play dirty. Lacrosse is a contact sport. If a player is going to try to dodge an entire defense and have a clear shot on goal there will probably be contact. Move the ball and you will avoid the contact.

The problem is when Dads need an excuse to explain why his son's team got beat. All I read on this thread is complaining about Bandits and Badgers. They were too big, they were to aggressive, they ran up the score, they shot behind their back.

They are the two top teams in this age bracket. And clearly Bandits are the top. Talk to your coaches and get them to practice more. Those two teams practice multiple days a week year round. Tell your coaches and teams to put in more time. Most wont because of the $$$.

Stop hating on 9/10 year old kids who work hard and coaches who spend countless hours with them.

So. To be clear, this thread is about 9/10 year old boys that are in the 4th grade. Correct???? And, you are threatening to beat each other up over this? Or have your gold gloves and wwe kid beat some other kid up? Crazy. Insane. Out of your collective minds. And, if the Express team 1 in 2023 is teaching their players to play dirty and slash kids when the ref isn't looking, then this is a big problem. Cheating to win and teaching kids to play dirty is disgusting.

The score was 14-1 if your son plays for Canes and 10-1 if your son plays for the Outlaws. I don't think he can kick anybody's A$$ during the game. Sounds like he couldn't even get the ball to your offensive end of the field. Have him Work on that.

Pretty funny Bandits beat Badgers pretty handily 7/8 plus a few weeks ago and there is NO talk on this page. Badgers win this weekend and there is name calling and degrading of teams, parents, players etc. This is NOT a coincidence. We may not be there yet but the way the HB act makes me look forward to the day we are. Beating us by 3/4 means the gap is closing,did not see a huge difference on the field. its unfortunate because you do have a good team a better team if you didnt act that way

Some very good lax this morning at Mitchell, Icon looks to be the team to beat, handled all the teams in their Bracket. Express gave them a pretty good game, up and down both teams playing with a lot of heart. fl$ won the other pool but didn't really get tested, not sure who came in 2nd in that group but should be fun semifinals tomorrow. Impressed by the outlaws and express 2024 too, some very good players and tough kids. Where is Patriot from? They had express on the ropes until a late rally, great game all around.

You people are really too much. The Bandits and the Badgers are two great teams that are fun to watch and play the game at an impressive level considering their age. Why can't it be left at that? All of the boys on those two teams should be proud of themselves. They all put in lots of hard work, dedication, and practice and it shows. My guess is that the people who stir the pot on here don't even have kids that play on either team.

Nothing to be proud of running up a score 22-1 and 20-0 on two begginner teams. Have some class Bandits. That disgraceful showing of good sportsman was 42 of your 80 goals scored. Most classier teams would stop at 12 or 13 goals when their opponent is struggling getting the ball in and out of their sticks.

Actually to be accurate as I just checked he didn't tweet that Bandits scored 80 goals Team 91 did. Actually watched Bandits Badgers and it was great to see the great sportsmanship between both teams.

so if your position is that none of the teams the bandits played could throw or catch (of course besides the badgers) then please remind me - werent the badgers tied 6-6 with less than 5 minutes to go against the team from boston? so if they couldnt catch or throw, what does that say about the badgers that you were in such a close game with them? let me give you a hint BM, you're the only guy that posts at 4:15am so we all know its you. dont you worry though, we'll be sure to run the score up against you this weekend - we had been getting bored with you but thanks for the motivation to atleast make this fun

I have no idea if it's true because I don't tweet and I'm not on twitter but if someone tweeted about how badly a 10 year old lacrosse team outscoring their opponents, they should be ashamed of themselves. I played D1 college lacrosse and now coach. No coach should EVER run up a score on an opponent or brag about how badly they beat their opponents. And to do that when the kids involved are 10 YEARS OLD is shocking. I think, sadly, it shows how out of control youth lacrosse has become.

Wow, that was a great post by a 10 year old kid! He must be tops in his class! (well, close to tops; most 10 year old kids use apostrophes with their contractions) I'm assuming it was a 10 year old because he said "we" a bunch of times. If it wasn't, you truly live an empty and pitiful life.

Team 91 ‏@team91lacrosse Jun 14

1st championship in the history of the NLF! 2023 Bandits go undefeated to win outscoring opponents 80-8 @JoeSpallina


I just checked that as well and that also is inaccurate he did not. I do agree tho that Team 91 should NOT have tweeted the goal differential, but I do not think it was done maliciously. Not a fan of team 91 but let's all be truthful

Most classier teams would stop at 12 or 13 goals when their opponent is struggling getting the ball in and out of their sticks.


I do apoligize but it was 91 and not JS and no I'm not Bob. I'm a 2021 parent who watched a few games and followed the tournament on Tourney Machine. The Goals scored were obviously posted. Just not a huge fan of running up scores and credit another poster; Badgers and Bandits coaches and players seemed very respectful of each other. Very good game to watch.

If you have control over what JS decides to do this weekend with any team or score, you must be one of the coaches. If you are, shame on you for even being on this board. Sounds like you are one of the parents that the teams hate having because all you do is stir [lacrosse] up. Was told personally that these 2 teams want the nonsense trash talking to stop between these teams. They showed respect before during and after the game. Stop all this other name calling crap and let them play.

Love that now someone is so insane to know and track the sleeping habits of a coach. You my friend need a Freakin life. My guess is you have no control over what score either team will put up and you're just a Dad who's kid doesn't play and wearing the Bandit uni is more about you being accepted into a parent group that doesn't want you becuse your kid didn't make the team last year. Wake up Richy.

the same way it was a 10yo that posted at 4:15am that they did not appreciate the nature of the tweet. curious though as you threw all the teams under the bus that were not 91 or express as being unable to catch or throw how you explain the badgers being tied with boston in the games final moments? werent they one of those teams that you said couldnt play competitive lax? somehow you seem to have let that one slide in your post.

NEWS FLASH: Bandits changing team
Name:

It has been determined that since number 42 scores 85% of their goals and without him would suck and since he never leaves the field, Middy to Attack and back.........his Dad requested the change. They are officially changing the team name to 91-DUFF.

I don't care what anyone tweeted. The Bandits tore my son's team apart in the fall. They were awesome. It was great to see a 4th grade team playing at that level. My son wasn't pissed -- just really impressed.

I find the sniping on this forum rather amusing -- but you have to give credit where credit is due.

This isn't PAL. This is travel lax. Your best kids should play as much as they can. The objective is to win. The team practices and all kids get better, but make no mistake, tourneys are for winning.

Sorry meant no disrepect to Boston. Pretty good team but makes no difference what the score was in any momemt of a game. Final score matters. Boston lost 11-7. End of story
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2023 Fall 2014/Summer 2015 -
I personally give more credit to the Badger coaches and players. The last three times the teams have played the difference has been about an average of 8. A team as good as the HB doesn't lose to one boy.

Your son can still be impressed with a 12-0 a$$ whopping. The only thing that running a score up 22-0 did was humiliate the 9 yr olds on the other team. Adding 10 more goals onto an already won game at 12-0 shows nothing but an arrogance and pure bad sportsmanship.

RIGHT ON MY BROTHER! FINALLY SOMEONE WHO GETS IT.
And I can tell you last year they beat my sons team by like 15 goals at Laxfest and they were taking it easy. It wasn't fun when their big D kid was scoring on attack, and some of the kids were trying to go BTB but the Coaches did try to slow them down a lot. In hindsight, it was an awesome display and now my kid mentions not letting it happen again when he is practicing and working hard.

The guy is doing pretty well this year. SB Ladies did very well, Lizards are like 8-0, his 91 Teams and the organization are kicking a lot of buttocks. I don't expect to see much crashing down. High blood pressure maybe, but crashing down, Nah.

Good luck to all participating this weekend. Looks like great competition. Let's hope no kid gets injured and they all enjoy the lacrosse.

Welcome to lacrosse. First lacrosse is a high intensity sport, get use to the excitement. If you can not, better you fold up your tent now. The coach was yelling "play physical" not do physical harm. Playing physical is part of the sport. Since its your first tournament you will understand by the end of the summer. There were no parents acting disrespectful on the sidelines. In no way was anyone bashing a player. They did get upset with the ref when they took 2 minutes after every penalty to decide what to do, not the penalty itself. The fact is you lost in the finals against them. We all see you cought on rather quickly to one aspect of travel lacrosse. To come on here and bash the winning, parents and coaches. It was a great game and the only thing bad that happened is a sore loser came on here. Parentd from both teams were vocal and engaged into the game. This is what makes the sport exciting to watch. Enjoy your first season on the team, hopefully you will do the right thing and decide if lacrosse is for you. Sorry I mean I hope your son will decide. Please don't respond with my grammar mistakes and spelling mistakes. I didn't do very good in school living in my trailer park with my white trash family.

This coming from an Express team? Obviously you have never played the 91 Long Island team where the coaches tell the kids who to physically target - or drop to the floor in agony when no one was around them to stop a fast break
It was a championship game - of course it was heated! Bad calls were made for both teams ... It was a well matched game played by both teams
Outlaws coachies are fantastic- sorry your team lost calls were terrible
Btw ... This trailer park guy is floating in his pool in his two million dollar house-

Either get beat up by bandits/badgers in the semis or win the B bracket, I believe it's their first year so coaches may have a plan to build some confidence with the team. Looked like they and Express 2 would have had another battle today if games weren't cancelled.

No, it's not our first year. We're getting beat. I'd much rather have PB admit that we are a natural "B" team than some pipe dream "A" club. We're gonna keep losing players.

My son plays on the Express North team. The LI Outlaws coach was not encouraging his players to "play physical", he was screaming at the top of his lungs "physically pound them". A 3/4 coach should not, IMO, demand his players to "physically pound" other kids. Is that lacrosse or street thuggery? The Outlaw players were playing great, they didn't need to be intimated by their coach to harm their oppponents. I believe despicable was used to describe his behavior and I have to agree.

Not sure, but whoever wrote this, it doesn't seem to apply to Icon 2023. We're not really getting beat, nor do we have a "PB" that I am aware of. I think someone responded about a different club or team. Unless there's more insight.?.?.?

Either get beat up by bandits/badgers in the semis or win the B bracket, I believe it's their first year so coaches may have a plan to build some confidence with the team. Looked like they and Express 2 would have had another battle today if games weren't cancelled.

No, it's not our first year. We're getting beat. I'd much rather have PB admit that we are a natural "B" team than some pipe dream "A" club. We're gonna keep losing players.

I responded before maybe it was misconstrued, I meant to say something more like Bandits and Badgers are in their own class and nobody is arguing that (and Bandits even in their own class above Badgers). Icon, Legacy, Igloo, 91 Warriors, Express 2, Outlaws and some others (E3, not sure who they are but I saw with a pretty solid team) I have all seen play and look as if they are all about the same level. None of them would beat the mighty bandits/badgers but they all would most likely play pretty close games with eachother. It would be nice to see a tournament with all these teams in the same group. Also mix in some town teams that are very good at this age like Massapequa, Smithtown, 3 Village and Manhasset, overall I think there are a lot of good teams with good coaches in this age group very deep field of teams.

Not sure what the other guy was talking about Icon has done very well this year, maybe they thought I was talking about Express 2? If they did I was not trying to knock them either looking at their scores on tourneymachine from the last few weeks and it looks like their a legitimate team and beat a number of "A" teams. Rare at this age to see very good B level teams like 91 & Express have, testament to the coaches and the kids to their work throughout the year.

Wrong, wordsmith. The Outlaws a a team, singular.
You must be one of the LI trash screaming like a complete
moron on the sidelines today. You idiots deserve the coach
who is instructing your boys.

I'm posting because my 4th grader is playing summer lacrosse
for the very first time and the behavior was completely
unacceptable and simply should not be tolerated.

I'm not blaming the kids, they are being guided by a lunatic
coach and supported by intolerable parents. Just my observation.


Welcome to lacrosse. First lacrosse is a high intensity sport, get use to the excitement. If you can not, better you fold up your tent now. The coach was yelling "play physical" not do physical harm. Playing physical is part of the sport. Since its your first tournament you will understand by the end of the summer. There were no parents acting disrespectful on the sidelines. In no way was anyone bashing a player. They did get upset with the ref when they took 2 minutes after every penalty to decide what to do, not the penalty itself. The fact is you lost in the finals against them. We all see you cought on rather quickly to one aspect of travel lacrosse. To come on here and bash the winning, parents and coaches. It was a great game and the only thing bad that happened is a sore loser came on here. Parentd from both teams were vocal and engaged into the game. This is what makes the sport exciting to watch. Enjoy your first season on the team, hopefully you will do the right thing and decide if lacrosse is for you. Sorry I mean I hope your son will decide. Please don't respond with my grammar mistakes and spelling mistakes. I didn't do very good in school living in my trailer park with my white trash family.


My son plays on the Express North team. The LI Outlaws coach was not encouraging his players to "play physical", he was screaming at the top of his lungs "physically pound them". A 3/4 coach should not, IMO, demand his players to "physically pound" other kids. Is that lacrosse or street thuggery? The Outlaw players were playing great, they didn't need to be intimated by their coach to harm their oppponents. I believe despicable was used to describe his behavior and I have to agree.


The coach was most definitely yelling "physically pound them". Who is the 2023 LI Outlaw coach?

PB wasn't even there for the tourney. I believe he was out of state. Give it a rest. Call him and complain the " grown up" way instead of airing it out anonymously on this site! Sad.

The owner wasn't there. And every coach yells something to the effect of "take the body" or "play physical". You really need to think about another sport if your taking literally what was said to 4th graders during the course of a game.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2023 Fall 2014/Summer 2015 -
Sorry but the coach was way out of line and should be dismissed. He was yelling at the children to get even with the other team for injuring an outlaw player during clean play.

Ok coach thanks for your input- game is long over- [lacrosse] far as players fearing a opposing coach ? Are you really going there - your team lost that's just fine, the game could have gone either way move on . practice practice and practice some more . Good luck at your next tournament hope no one yells to loud.

The assistant coach is a yeller. The parents know this and don't care. It's bad for the kids to see this.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2023 Fall 2014/Summer 2015 -
With my oldest being in ths age group, It will be interesting to watch now, starting with a couple years ago, and going forward the increase in physical play and contact. I noticed it more this year stating to creep in to a degree. I guess the kids just adapt. Some like more contact. Others may shrink from it.

I never played or was exposed to lax growing up so this is all new to me.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2023 Fall 2014/Summer 2015 -
It definitely looks like there is a shift from pure skill to this more physical level of play. Also seeing more injuries, broken limbs and concussions. If it continues lax will go the same direction as football and the younger age groups will start to shrink. Parents will pull their kids out and wait out the growth years. There is definitely a decline in youth football programs across the Island. And imagine they have age, and weight restrictions that ARE monitored by photo IDs! If Enough 9 and 10 year olds take head injuries from 6th graders, parents will grow tired of it quickly.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2023 Fall 2014/Summer 2015 -
pretty sure I watched the same coach in the blatant tournament yelling at the ref about a bad call as the express player was still laying on the ground in pain from a potentially serious injury . Player took a shot and was blasted with his head down . Outlaw coach was more concerned his player only took 2 steps not 3 to lay out the defenseless shooter .

I watched most of the game in question; the Outlaws coach was out of control on the sideline. 3/4 kids are learning the game and really don't need a non stop diatribe to play. We as coaches get emotional on the sideline but to demand 3/4 kids physically pound opponents is way over the line. They should be concerned with foot work and positioning, not physically intimidating opponents.

It really is sad to watch the sport devolve and I hope the parents respond to any coach who behaves this way. Teach the kids fundamentals and be positive.

My son does not play on the team so I agree with a prior poster, I leave it to the Outlaw program to police and it starts with the paying parents.

The only joke is you - to come onto this site and post ANONYMOUSLY about someone is just pathetic. If you have a problem with someone or something try picking up the phone or approach that person and speak to them about your issues. If you are not happy with the answers you get then try the next step and coach your own team and see how far you can get. Until you post your name and your credentials on how great of a lacrosse guru you are so some anonymous person can call you out - you just sound like angry parent who's son got cut or didn't come back for whatever reason or just plain lost.

Parents,

It is a contact sport. There is a reason why they wear equipment. If your son does not like contact then he can play baseball/tennis/golf. Was the coach wrong for telling kids to play physical? Maybe, but the game is played with a helmet and shoulder pads for a reason.
As the boys get older it will get more and more physical too. Go watch a higher level Varsity game.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2023 Fall 2014/Summer 2015 -
Football is a physical sport too. But there is a difference between physically playing the game and intent to hurt/injure/take-out a player. Particularly at this age level. High school is a different situation and far more physical but by high school most boys have had their growth spurts and the physical size difference is less of an issue. Parents are not so tolerant of head injuries at the grade school level. Especially when boys bodies are not fully developed. Watch. Lax will start to follow the trend of youth football if US Lacrosse doesn't take some action and coaches continue to approach the game with "pounding" players versus teaching skills! Remember They are 9 and 10! Not 17! Big Difference.

You watched most of the game in question? Just happen to be in Conneticut to watch the finals? I find it hard to believe parents from the other teams in New Jersey, Conneticut and New Hampshire are on this site. This discussion clearly has been taken over by parents who don't like the Outlaws and are jumping on the oppurtunity to bash the program with false and mis-leading arguments. This whole discussion is a huge non-event. It was started by a concerned express parent that never played travel lacrosse and greatly exaggerated what happened. The coaches were fantastic on both sides. Both teams played exceptional as evident by the game going into overtime. No players were getting hit hard and their were not redemption hits. it always amazes me how after a team wins a game we have to go through the same BS; coaches are beligerent, players are dirty and my favorite they played with kids playing down a year or two. I guess you missed all the good lacrosse played when you had to leave to scout your next game.

That is this site to a T.
Bash Bandits
Bash Badgers
Bash Outlaws
They have older kids, they play too aggressive, dirty players, behind the back shots, running up score, crazy coaches.
It is absolute lunacy. The teams that win usually have better more skilled players who work very hard.

It is a shame that all the hard work and dedication from the players and coaches goes unnoticed. It is easier to get on here and b*tch and moan and complain.

The coaches were fantastic on both sides. Both teams played exceptional as evident by the game going into overtime. No players were getting hit hard and their were not redemption hits. it always amazes me how after a team wins a game we have to go through the same BS; coaches are beligerent, players are dirty and my favorite they played with kids playing down a year or two. I guess you missed all the good lacrosse played when you had to leave to scout your next game.


Yes, I watched the game in question. I coach another team that was attending the tournament. Please stop describing the Outlaws coach as asking his players to "play physical" I was raised on Strong Island and played my college ball in Maryland in the 80's. The game is physical, but we as coaches should not demand that our players "physically pound' opposing players. I was frankly embarrassed by a fellow LIer's behavior and you sir and compounding the issue by defending his actions and attacking those calling out his unacceptable behavior. The outcome of the game is a nonissue, the coaches behavior is absolutely out of line.

It really is sad to watch the sport devolve and I hope the parents respond to any coach who behaves this way. Teach the kids fundamentals and be positive.


You watched most of the game in question? Just happen to be in Conneticut to watch the finals? I find it hard to believe parents from the other teams in New Jersey, Conneticut and New Hampshire are on this site.

Sorry but the only person or persons being called out are the anonymous posters wbo claim they were or are a coach that consistently bash others so until you post your name and what you have accomplished your post is just another pointless post

see I don't understand how that works that a grown man says I'm going to throw hands at a youth sports game or at all at his age in general. I guess unless he's protecting his family from imminent physical harm. I wonder when the guy lays in bed at night after fighting at his son's youth lacrosse game does he look up at the ceiling and say I'm the world's biggest [lacrosse] bag

All true. It was @ St Pauls in Garden City. I saw one guy with a busted mouth by the ambulance and one guy with handcuffs and 4 police officers standing around him. This should never happen at any youth lacrosse event. Unreal!
Has this ever happened to anybody on here? I was at a tourney this weekend and I asked a parent on the sideline what the score was. He responded, "we are losing 8-6." There was 3 mins left in the game. But, when the game ended, the referees thought the score was 6-6. The other team complained but the idiot refs did nothing. The parent(s) from the team that should have lost kept quiet. Crickets. Amazing. Not a word. And, then they had to have a Braveheart because it was a playoff game.

yes. happened a few times that refs lose track of score. once the other coaches knew the score was wrong, called their own time out, got the refs to correct the score in our favor. There are still plenty coaches out there honoring the game every day. Karma was on their side that day as they won in OT in one of the most exciting u11 games i've ever seen

Be careful what you wish for! Badgers will tear E3 to shreds and walk away with a smile. They will be merciless. Beating SST is not even close to playing Badgers. No even the same league. Your travel team beat a town team. Think about that for a second.

looking at the scores in that bracket, the fact that turf island and the bengals weren't beat by more than that against e3 and sst answers the question about both e3 and sst. it's like sports. you are never as good as a hot streak and never as bad as a losing streak. not every team is going to be the bandits. there is a team for every kid at every skill level. that's a good thing. not all lacrosse games are high skilled, high stakes. two "c" teams playing hopefully mean those kids have fun and learned something, just as much as the kids on two "a" teams. everyone is in such a rush to make all this stuff life and death it's amazing.

They can absolutely play with the "A" teams. They played in the "A" bracket and had 2 close games against Outlaws Black and fl$ with 5 of their starters missing. They would crush Black and fl$ with full strength.

Hold on. Are the honey cups suggesting that they can play up a year with the A teams? That's just silly, set up a game with either 91 team, igloo, 32, express etc. Here is the thing, playing up against B teams is easier than playing in your own age group against the best teams and is easier than playing against one age older town teams. The honey loves would get crushed by 10 different rising 6th grade town teams including GC, Port, CSH, Northport, farmingdale etc. As a matter of fact it would be irresponsible to even play up against better teams town or travel as the honey suckers might actually get hurt if they allow real hitting.

So if the Badgers are a B team, what does that make the other 2023 teams? I don't think anyone can dispute that the Bandits are the best team in the age group, but no other team has beat the Badgers, so I think it's safe to say they should not be grouped with the others either. I don't get the jealousy and the name calling. You realize that when you make fun of the team name and disparage the ability of the team you're putting down a bunch of 10 year old kids? Unbelievable and, quite frankly, pathetic.

Ok we all get it - you dont like the outlaws for one reason or another - maybe you lost to them and are bitter because you thought your sons team was an "A" team, or he didnt make the team - whatever the reason you need to accept it yourself.....


We actually crushed your Outlaw B team that you proclaim as an A.
Sounds like you can't admit to being a B.




"WE"? When referring to the team your SON plays on, it's "they". Unless the time you spend, at night alone, putting on your son's helmet while looking longingly in the mirror yelling to noone "Here's your help!" has you convinced otherwise.......

My son currently plays on a "B" level team. Would love for him to play on one of the netter teams (i.e. Bandits, Badgers, Igloo), but, skill level aside, is it unrealistic to think he might have a shot at making one of those teams? In other words, are these teams basically set and only looking to take on kids that are significantly better than the kids already on the team?

Listen I'm going to be honest with you......the teams you just mentioned, if you say your son is a fairly new player and a B level player right now, then playing for any of those teams would only frustrate you watching him get little or no playing time or worst off frustrate him and drive him away from the game. I will say one thing though, I know 91(which is the bandits) has And C level teams as well as the outlaws. I'd inquire on their websites about their B teams. be honest with them let them know the boy is a player right now. they won't turn him or your $2,500 away. they'll assign him to the appropriate team where he'll get plenty of playing time. do not let the bandits coach get a hold of him. He's the ny lizards coach....And the same guy that coaches that older 91 crush team that played in the national championship game in Denver and up 19-6 there were kids who never got on the field. He won't tuner your $2,500 away either and your kid will go to a place like Denver and you'll go to and he'll never play. neither of u would like that. so for now get your kid on a good B team with some good coaches and let him develop. And when you're confident he's ready for A bracket lacrosse then you can have him try out for those teams. don't let the names of these organizations and the t shirts bumper stickers and war stories sell u. at the end of the day your kid learning the game and his playing time is ultimately paramount. hope I was helpful. have a great weekend.

If he has the skills, he will make the better teams, but it has to be a clear standout performance at the tryout. No doubt that he has to be better or they go with what they know.

To add, while this should be about him, it's also about you and your other kids. Being on these top teams, there is a lot of sacrifice and hard work. They practice a few times a week, year round, for hours at a time. Practices may be close to you or over an hour away, but your son will be expected to be there for the practices, even if he plays other sports as well, as many of the kids do. If he is still young, a 2nd level team might be a better fit, unless he know lax will be his priority, over other sports, birthday parties, hanging out with friends after school- etc. As kids get older, making that decision is easier, as they are more mature and focused and their teammates become close friends and they learn and can later appreciate that the hard work and sacrifice means success.

Click on Igloo logo above, contact them to ask questions. Asking here is probably not a good plan. As far as the coaches being good or not.. they have an excellent program.

Good team and good coaches. Playing time is not equal and that is made clear to everyone from the beginning. They do their best to get the subs in during blowout but most of the tournaments have tie breaks based on goal differential so no stepping off the gas generally.

Agreed. The teams above generally know already who they are going to add. The coaches and directors will all have had significant inbound interest and likely made outbound interest. If you aren't in either of those groups your son would have to blow people away in tryouts and even then it will be tough. The top teams will have 100+ kids trying out for very few spots. If you are on a B team for one of the organizations above your coach would need to have the opinion that he is best on the team.

Why does it matter? It's statements like that that cause unnecessary animosity. They are both good teams. Last time Empire and Warriors played they were very evenly matched. I expect that they, and all of the teams mentioned, have improved since then. They will play each other again on Sunday. It should be a great game and I expect that one of them may win the championship this weekend.

Watched the bandits They actually play a bunch of kids in championship vs our boys they play 5/6 attackman and rotated two lines of midfield . They had only one player faceoff for both lines. Very talented play great team lacrosse. From our understanding it is them then behind them a ways is the express then a considerable drop off. Is that accurate these boys are all,so young all this will change and it is fun to watch the growth.

Bandits are the only "elite" team. Honey Badgers are great, but the gap between them and the rest of 2023 is diminishing weekly. They are still winning, but not by much.

Igloo will pass Badgers next season. Igloo getting better. Went to overtime with Badgers last week and handled Manhasset 32 yesterday (Manhasset played with 3 Badgers on the team). Great game, parents on both sides great. It is nice to watch a lacrosse game when parents are civil (unlike Badgers parents). Igloo team is definitely one to watch...

The groupings are largely correct, but I think the grades need to change to accurately reflect how these teams compare to teams off of LI. The sole reason to provide a grade for a team is to ensure that they are placed in the correct bracket at tournaments. The teams listed as B belong in the A bracket at nearly every tournament out there. They are A teams, and to say they are not simply because they can't beat the Badgers is silly. The teams listed as B- would be in the B bracket. Bandits are really an AAA team, with Badgers AA. Problem is that there are very few AAA teams in the country, and not many more AA teams.

Look at it this way - if you had a tournament with your so-called B teams, and marketed it as such, any self-assessed B team off of LI would get absolutely demolished and be very very angry at the organizers.

Yeah you're exactly right. But the best part is the great majority of people they speak to probably at work around the water cooler have no idea who the bandits are. Nor do they care. Every Monday at work people probably hide from them because they don't want to hear another weekend war story about 9 year old bandit lacrosse.

Yeah I doubt that with my life. the coach of the bandits coaches crush. his two younger sons are on the bandits. their the best players in that age group probably in the state. the other kid who's excellent his dad coaches with the bandits as well. keep dreaming. they're the whole team. stop with the E3 nonsense. you beat an express team who was missing half their team. now you're on the rise suddenly? calm down. go have another drink. none of the bandits are going anywhere. they're the best team out there at their age group. no one is leaving. stop it E3 daddy. it's getting old.

They did good. Won their last tourney but are no where even close to the Pack/Taz. They are in the same class as the Outlaws/TLI/Avengers/E3.

They do have nice gear though

Wrong grade...2023 is in a better play then 2024

They competed in A bracket all year and did very well beating most teams. They beat Manhasset 32 in the last tournament by 5 goals and in Maverick Shootout they lost to Honey Badgers in overtime. Great close game. Next year will certainly be interesting!

They are ok. Didn't play anyone so it's tough to judge.

Is DK a good coach?
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2023 Fall 2014/Summer 2015 -
He was very good. He took a brand new team, competed A bracket and won 2 of 4 tournaments (other tournaments had weather cancellations). He had a great connection with the boys and they responded well.

If he was very good, then why did he get fired??

For 8 hours of camp/tryouts, less than an average camp costs.

Not worried. Last year coaches were listed weeks before tryouts. It's only July.

8 hours??? Are they trying out for Team USA????

Its a 'CAMP' format. It seems many are jealous that Igloo has built a successful business and top notch lacrosse program at the same time. They have been Organized, obviously competitive, and now ill say 'innovative' Not your boiler-plate 10 practices, 5 tournaments, a bag and uniform for $1500.

seems igloo is branching out to girls lacrosse as well. 4th igloo girls team beat yellow jackets A team in the YJ Elite Showcase

DK got a raw deal. Rumor has it Manhasset parents upset he didn't coddle their kids and forced AA to get rid of him so they could bring in their own guy. Others on team got wind of this turning into a new 32 team and complained. So they are still bring in Manhasset guy to be the "assistant". Bad move - nobody wants to play daddy ball or be on a team where the coach only plays the kids from his town. Say what you want about DK, but he is an excellent coach who doesn't play favorites...
