BOTC is opening our Fall 2014 through Summer 2015 thread covering the Boys 2025 age group.

Waiting to see what teams are fielding a true 2025 team. Was leaning toward Millon because I like the more instructional approach and they play local. Heard they are not having a 2 nd grade team now so We may try out for Hurricanes, and Outlaws just to see the process and how he does.

Just finished up a 2024 2nd grade season. Our experience was mixed. My son had fun and loved the comraderie and the gear. Reality is there are very few true 2nd grade teams and even fewer 2nd grade brackets in tournaments. We needed up playing many 3rd grade teams in tourneys and the size difference was significant at times which made it tough to compete.

I think millon and outlaws are 3rd grade

Yes. Both are going to be 3rd grade. I keep hearing the same about the size disparity. Mostly from express parents. Other kids I coached on 91 and Legacy seemed to play mostly 2nd grade. My main focus is quality instruction. Do the teams ever post the coaches prior to tryouts?

Zummo who is the main owner of Legacy coaches the 2024 team along with former Tewarton finalist Chris Fiore. I think Mike Taylor coach of Dowling just merged in and also has a son this age. Crazy staff for a 3 rd grade team..

I dont want to post in respect because it was sent to me privately. HS coach of 91 player who just signed D1 and was a posted on here about it. 16 yr NCAA College coach who is all over there Twitter feed and the 3rd Varsity Head Coach was from T Birds . Seemed like a very strong lineup of coaches for a 2025 group.

How many kids show up for a specific grade like 2025 at an express , 91 or legacy tryout? How many get cut or what makes them set up a second team . Thanks for the insight
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2025 Fall 2014/Summer 2015 - 08/06/14 12:58 PM
Went to 91/Expresso tryouts last year. Here is what I remember.

Express - tryout was a disaster as they had the 2nd and 3rd graders mixed together and 100+ kids on the field. They ended up with one 2nd grade team. No cuts and actually sent out an email saying the team was short players. Added players over the winter, lost a few too. Ended up with 20+.

91 - pure 2nd grade tryout. very organized. probably 30 kids. took about 12 for the A team and 12 for the B team. Held a 2nd tryout in January where they filled out both rosters.

The only pure 2nd grade teams out there were express, legacy, 91 a/b. Can make the tournament match ups tough as you end up playing a lot of 3rd grade teams.

If you are a new family and the coaches do not know your kid, I would say going to both is absolutely better/necessary. Remember, unless your little guy is an amazing standout, they will need to see him over a longer timeframe (certainly for the A teams). So you need to pick your first choice and get to both of those. Maybe for the second choice you only go one day and cross your fingers.

If you want a shot at 91a then yes. Express, Legacy, 91B no as long as your son is decent. Would give the evaluators a heads up if you're going to miss the 2nd tryout.

After the second tryout they post the results on the website by the end of that week. They post the pinnie #s for A and B separately. You also get an email.

They tell you the team you make. It is listed on their web site- they list the team and coaches with the kids listed by number, not name. If your kid doesn't make it at first, they may here in a week or so later- as some kids decline, as they've tried out for a few teams and pick their first choice. GL to you- it is a little stressful for the kids, and even parents because you want your kid to be happy, not disappointed.

Next question is travel schedule. Hoping to find a team that is going to play here on Long Island with maybe one Out of state tournament. Safe to assume at this age there won't be much travel?

Typically the A teams travel much more than the B/C teams. So be careful about what you wish for.

What drills do they do during tryouts for the younger guys?

My experience is: Ground balls left/right...simple catch/throw/cradle left and right, catch and shoot on the run left and right. One on one ground balls to see how much fight they have in them. Just like they get at any good clinic.

The better ones have a good pace to them so they get the kids to stay focused, but at 2nd grade, even the good ones might shoot down a few airplanes with their sticks.

Depending on what they see from your kid, they might even coach him a little to see if he listens and picks things up on the fly.

They look at who is watching (good), who is walking (bad), which kids sit down (not good). You get the idea. At this stage the stick skills seem more important, but as they say, you can't coach height, so if your boy doesn't have skills, he better be big and fast.

At 91 last year, they spent the last 45 minutes doing full field scrimmage. Also did one on ones., line drills (right and left) and butt to butt gbs.

Getting close to tryouts. Looking to get my son started in the right organization with good people and the least amount of drama. My son is decent, can catch and throw . Listens to everything and soaks it in quickly.Hoping to find a team into developing players year in and out. Don't care if we win tournaments. I just want to see him to improve his game and have fun. Any input on 91, express , empire or legacy. So far I like what I have seen a read on Empire and the coach . 91 staff looks amazing but concerned how they are with 8 yr olds. Heard good things about Legacy and Coach Fiore. Express was our 1st choice but have received by far the least amount on info from them . Past players told me don't try out for them until 4th grade. Appreciate any insight other than don't do it.

Your son is 2024?

Looking for an A team?

Is he ready and skilled enough for some of these A teams?

You said w/l record didn't matter and skill development was most important. Based on that you might be better off at a bunch of clinics and PAL.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2025 Fall 2014/Summer 2015 - 08/27/14 04:24 PM
He is 2025. Doing clinics and playing PAL w/ a 2024 team. He can handle playing travel. Was looking for a good mix of coaches and program. Two of the teams we were interested have a similiar tryout date Empire/Legacy. Will teams let you know where you stand after the 1st week of tryouts or will they wait til its over?

They typically wait, or it would seem phoney I think, but I would bet you will know intuitively if he has a shot if you aren't a "my kid is the best" looney tune. But you will be surprised at how many good 7 (and 8) year old kids there are. At the Legacy tryout last year, I knew my son was in the mix, but still was relieved when he made it and I got to avoid telling him bad news. Ended up not playing with them and we ultimately had a good experience where we were. Legacy was Zummo's team (a plus) and he ran the organizational show as well. After, they did what they said regarding acceptances etc.

We are looking for a 2024 A team this year for my son (who as you probably know with any 8 year old is too easily swayed) so I have my own list (that is sort of his list now) with the coach as most important and driving distance next.

For you, from what I can see in your two options are:

1) bigger, good, still young organization that will likely have less really open spots (with Legacy and HDD families to accommodate) but known coaches and program.
2) Smaller, totally new with plenty of open spots most likely with less info on coaches and program but with the Rotanz factor which seems to me like a good thing.

Tough call for Empire with unknowns, but maybe easier at the start and with The need to succeed, maybe you benefit from more focus on your boy once he makes it.

I hope this helps...Good luck!

Thanks. Travel is definitely another level. We have seen it at the clinics and also kids he plays PAL with. We are lucky that 2025 is a fresh team for most. Legacy did have a few 2025 kids that played up last year so they are going to have spots on the 2024 team thisn year. Hopefully we both end up there. Thanks again,

D-bag....

I have a life and so does my kid who I would happily let kick you in the balls. Travel lax is what he earned by working hard and doing very well in school last year and by reading extra books and preparing all summer for his start of school tomorrow, all while still practicing a wall ball routine he found for himself on the web. He could have asked for just about anything and guess what, he would have gotten it!

Now go find somewhere else to be bitter and angry, I feel sorry for you and especially your family.

I was there and they had probably 50 kids, not quite 60. Plenty of coaches and talent, even if they want two teams like they had last year. It is not easy to decide what kids to take from the group in the middle that are not dominating but still seem like they can play.

Interestingly there were two young ladies, a goalie and a field player. I wasn't sure what the deal was and couldn't ask afterwards b/c of the rain. My son wanted to know what to do! Sort of funny because he has been taught not to be rough with girls and I was not ready to answer, but I told him to treat them like any other player. I'm still trying to see what the deal is there.

Field player is JS daughter. She will be on the A team. Along with the coaches boys and a few of their friends. Leaves you with about 10 spots for A team. They will have a second tryout in January to fill those spots.

She was actually pretty good, I would say she was in the top half of the kids if not better than that. Beat several of the young men to quite a few ground balls.

After the 2024 DISASTER last year, I would say NFW! No practices and no wins, the team couldn't even beat the 91 b team and those parents were complaining about their situation.

Say what you want, but that organization did not care one bit about those kids.

So they only care every couple of years, and those kids get treated properly? I'm not confused, I would expect that they should do the same thing every year. Not for me, thank you .

Fair point. But if the rumor is true that the HB guys are running a 2025 team then that's a game changer. Those guys are dedicated. And believe me that's the last thing that some clubs want to see.

Why Smithtown or 3Village players/parents would go club at this age makes no sense to me. Strong town programs, solid coaching, etc. Save the time, $ and drama...they grow up fast. 6th, 7th grade...let them go club. Plenty of time.

believe all 3 programs have some kind of connection with each other and pooled their top talented kids together. 3v/smithtown are proven strong programs overall,esm is not,only at few grade levels.
played 2024 esm in greenport, very good team.

This guy has a screw loose. You're son is 7 years old and 3 ft tall and I (along with other parents) have to listen to your rants?

Nothing yet as far as practices on a or b...sit tight. Didn't George (the director) say there would be something soon but to expect mostly training and drills for both teams before they fill out/ finish the rosters in Spring. The way I read into that, some B kids could move up. Seems to me that you have to keep your kid working and not wait for the coaches. If you are on B, you should get the benefit of the HC having his son on the team. I guess that is the hope.

Let me guess another "I held my kid back for academics story" The months between some of these kids birthdates in minimal, but the parents rant and rave about my son "playing up" What a joke.

You gossiping fool. Know your facts before you type. First off nobody got a glimpse of 91 2025 kids, there hasn't been a practice yet, just 40 plus kids trting out. Secondly if cheering for your kid makes one a loudmouth, then I see a lot of loudmouths. Why don't you sign your son up for violin lessons or arts and crafts, something that's a little quiet. Third, the wolfpack didn't let anyone go, kid wants to play with his buddies, who are 2nd graders, and last u blabbering wash woman, december 1st is school cutoff, kids bday is 4 days before cutoff. Parents held him 4 days, socially/academically/speech it benefits the boy. Not lacrosse, u fool. Parents made this choice at the age of 3, to help their son. They don't need to explain to you. If u have a problem approach the father like a man, instead of your cowardly anonymous typing.

So maybe there will be less of the 2/3 grade brackets although it might be good to get to see what it takes to play up.

Playing up is tough at this age. The size difference can be substantial. Even the mighty Wolfpack lost to 3rd grade B teams and town teams

Absolutely true, coaches are doing a good job of teaching these little folks how to really play the game while still keeping it relaxed. It is very difficult to be demanding and lighthearted at the same time. The balance between high school and preschool is surely not easy!

So far I am very pleased with what I see and more importantly what I hear from my little guy.

Not angry just disappointed so far with the experience. Hard to hear about all these teams playing, practicing when we are really doing anything.

Reach out to the head of 91 and push back or it history will repeat itself for the titans.

I understand that some parents are not happy that their kids are not practicing yet, but what part of the tryouts and sign up paperwork said there would be fall practice? The tryouts all said there would be 2015 tournament teams, not fall 2014. After tryouts, they send you a ton of e-mail to offer winter training to get ready for spring. Where did they say to expect more than this?

IMHO if your son is a 2024 B Team player, then he needs drills and stick work, lots of reps, wall ball and bounce back (for free), or you can pay for 2 winter sessions of the 91 DLT at $275 a session through 14 weeks. I know the Titans have directors practice tonight, so ask BS or GB right there what the deal is.

I understand the kids want to get rolling, and now the damn tryouts for all of these teams happen way too soon, but I don't know why people are acting like there should be more.

We've all learned to read, and certainly people reading this website have seen the posts about B teams, so why the surprise?

Here is what they promised. What didn't you get that you already quit?

• Five Summer Tournaments


• 4 Winter Practices


• 12 Spring/Summer Practices


• 2 Director's Hybrid Training Sessions


• Two-Day Mini Camp

looks like a fair deal when they tell you up front. I didn't see fall practice listed. And perhaps this belongs on the 2024 thread.

Don't worry you will have plenty of time to be underwhelmed by in the summer/Spring. You are better off with wall ball anyway.

Yeah, not sure why they weren't in the true 3rd grade division considering they are a travel team. They could have dropped a town team down.

7 of the 20 Millon players are 2nd graders. And the other teams in that bracket definitely had 3rd graders. Don't try and take away something good from a good organization.

I often heard don't burn them out. Don't be to strict. Don't be demanding. They will loose interest. They won't play in HS

Us coaches coach so the child will learn and love the game. And play with their friends or make new ones. The boys who get burnt out never really liked it in the first place. Or played for someone else.. Not themselves or their team. Think back to when you were little, sports was the most important thing in life. Being the fastest strongest or who could throw a football farthest, sink the most free throws or spit the furthest... was a badge of honor... As it should be.

Btw You don't want the boys who half [lacrosse] it playing HS you want them to bail by HS because you want to win.... but you are years away.

For now

Enjoy your drives to the games, find out how his week at school was. Ask did anything funny happen at school. Learn what music he likes... Share yours and play them both loud... Make a favorite sandwich... And share it. Buy that grape soda or big league chew and Make special memories with your child.

On the way home limit the critiques but be truthful... And always tell him you had fun watching them. Tell them that because when they get older they will understand when you ask.... Was that any fun for you?

Don't stress now there will be many ebbs and flows. Buckle up and enjoy the ride. But if he decides not to play in HS no worries. You got 7 yrs. before you cross that bridge.

The moron who has a kid on a pure 2025 team listening to mostly 3rd grade parents high fiving about beating 2nd graders. You should be playing in the age group of your oldest kids. Not playing down.

Millon didn't play down. It was a 2/3rd grade bracket and that is what the team is made of. The boys played together for the first time and did well. The long Boards had numerous 3rd graders as well. It was a good game minus the long boards parents cheering after Millon player was injured on a very questionable hit. No wonder they are complaining and looking for excuses. Sad. It's about the kids learning, playing and having fun.

Longboards looked better against the other teams . Millon had a big middie that did a lot of damage but they beat Legacy 25 by a few goals. Did millon beat Longboards twice? They played last game and finals . I watched the other bracket wolfpack, legacy 24, smith town and Greenwich 24 . Based on those teams Millon was in the right place. Good for them.
Posted By: Pauly1 Re: Boys 2025 Fall 2014/Summer 2015 - 10/20/14 09:18 PM
No, Millon lost the third game in bracket play and won in the championship thus creating the excuses from the Longboard parents.

Who ever called me a moron can log onto the tournament website and see it was a B bracket 2/3rd graders or remain ignorant.
Posted By: Pauly1 Re: Boys 2025 Fall 2014/Summer 2015 - 10/20/14 09:21 PM
If you are referring to played down as in the weaker bracket so they could win. It was the first time they played as team and only has 2 players with previous travel experience so seeing the teams in the A bracket Millon was placed correctly. Its about the kids not the parents ego's!

It definitely was a mixed bracket. 2 Second grade teams pulled out .Legacy and Greenwich were the only 2025 teams although Greenwich used some of the 2024 guys to help out. Millon was listed on the schedule as a 3rd grade team. Longboards were listed as a 2025 but we're most definitely a combination.

btw most of your tourneys will be 2/3 grade bc there are too few psychopaths to register the 7 yo kids into this. get used to playing up

My 2025 played up last year, held his own and loved it, if spending some cash to make him happy makes me a psycho so be it. There are more 2025 teams (and psycho parents) than ever. And maybe you are more messed up than me trolling the 2025 site. And don't start showing up at the games, we don't want you.

No one really cares who won. Someone questioned where they too good to play in the division. They were in the proper division and played very good.All kids had an awesome time. Played lacrosse with friends. Made new friends in between games goofing around. Did not hear one coach yelling yesterday. An occasional parent. Luckily the Commack dad was in the other bracket.No kid complained about what grade anyone was in. Every kid dropped to a knee the second any player was down.Coaches were playing there entire benches.Definitely was fun and it's a shame that some people try and put a bad spin on it . It was a good showing by all involved .

What is wrong with you. The A bracket had all 2024. The B bracket was a 2/3 grade . No one played down. There was no straight 2025 bracket. There are few pure 2nd grade teams (2025), that's why it is almost always a 2/3 combo. Every team in that B bracket had a combo mix of 2/3.
Just because a team says 2024 it doesn't mean all the kids are 2024. 2025 kids have to play up like my son did on Millon. Now stop complaining about teams playing down when in fact they are playing up.

You're right legacy and greenwich weren't pure 2nd grade, they had a few 1st graders too. If millon can't get enough interest to fill a 3rd grade team and has to take 2nd graders they should still have to play 2024. Not play down 2025s.

Did they have any 2023s? If they didn't which it sounds that is the case then they were placed in the RIGHT bracket. How do you not understand that? If you hw e a pure 2024 team they will be playing up a lot this year. Come next year they will play against first and second graders as well as thirds.

The bracket was 2/3 bracket . Would have only been Legacy and GW in the bracket if it were pure 2nd. .Based on the games I watched Longboards had more of an A team. Seemed like they have playing together longer. In the other bracket Smithtown and legacy had some 2nd graders on the team but don't think millon belonged in the bracket.
Don't take anything away from any of them. Millon was the champs. Longboards beat them once. Legacy and Greenwich were both highly competitive with 2nd grade teams .Great day of lacrosse .

Will the Orange squeeze the competition?
Will empire be green with envy?
Will the geese lay an egg.
All this and more tomorrow morning, bright and early!

These 2025 clubs didn't choose the best players. They chose the first 23 idiot parents who would pay $2k for 2nd grade travel lacrosse. Embarrassing

Hey [lacrosse], maybe the 1 grand (not 2) doesn't matter as much to me as my kid having fun and memories that will last for a long time. Maybe you need to catch an OT shift at the plant and worry more about your own finances. Mine are just fine.

You can hold your own kid out until 4th grade and then hand him over to some dad with PAL who played a little in HS if that makes you feel so smart (and rich).

And now that I think of it, if I could have, I would have spent more, and sooner.

That would be Mr. [lacrosse] to you. I don't work in a plant , and my finances are better than yours I can tell you that. Just because I have $$ doesn't mean I have to throw it away. Memories ? You really think your 8 yr old is going to remember this ? Not as much as you will lining the pockets of smart businessmen. And BTW I coach my sons PAL team and I did play D1 at a top school. I guess our team is just lucky.

And now it's a who is a more arrogant [lacrosse] contest. I'm sure the top D1 school you attended would be so proud that their alumnus is posting how lucky 2nd graders are to be coached by a graduate from that fine institution. You are the definition of a tool.

Sure you did at a top school! Right. I'm sure it must have been great for you now as you kill it on the street and I'm so convinced .. I'll call you Mr. D1,
And your kids must be so awesome with you as coach.. I don't think you will mind though if I trust my own judgement and not yours. [lacrosse]!

I am Elmer J Fudd millionaire I went to a D1 school for lax and I own a mansion and a yacht! And on the side I am a great PAL lax coach! And I decree that anyone who has a 2nd grade kid playing travel is.... Never mind... I am Elmer J Fudd! Let's make this all about me.

Pretty sure they are. That was the idea. He planned on filling the roster after winter and spring (yes, there will be another one in early spring) tryouts.

My son's on the team. Orange needs to practice. I know they're babies, but I thought they would be better. Does Coach know what he's doing? Top team=commitment from both players AND coaches. I'll have him on the Golden Geese next year if this guy's not serious.

You should go now then! We don't want you! And maybe the Geese don't want your poisonous attitude either.
Skills, skills, skills for now! If you listened to the coaches they said they would coach them if it was what we wanted and if we set it up. So watch for an e-mail this week.
I hope you also listened and have your boy at DLT as they recommended because my boy is working harder than yours, I'll guarantee it.

You don't have to agree with me, but my older son has been on Bandits since the beginning. That team was taken much more seriously than this one. They practiced more and at least had a full roster in the fall so they could build continuity. If you're content with mediocre, good for you. Your life will be easy. That's not what I'm paying for.

I agree with the other poster. Skills should be worked on at home on their own or at winter training. They seriously need some work as a team so they can find positions for them. Moving from defense to middie to attack is silly, but I guess that's what happens when you only take kids that play middie.

And this is why people can't stand 91 parents. Ease up, guy. We're going to need everyone we have. Chances are the rest of the roster will be filled with kids that are not as strong as what we have now.

I think you might have just pin-pointed the other guys issue. I don't know why we, as parents, should need to set up and plan anything. If the coaches were serious about the team, they would have set it up just like the other coaches did. I think it just shows their level of commitment. I know the head coach has a kid on the team and coaches kids play for free. Is that why he's doing it? Just my 2 cents, but it's a legitimate concern.

Yep. If your kid is playing travel lax at this age, he should be doing skill work every day on his own. Preaching "skills, skills, skills" is a coaching cop out. I can work on skills. that's not what we're paying for.

You are paying for what the said on the tryout sheet, you have already had more practice than that and a tournament. Have you asked the coach and spoken to the 91 office to set it up? I guess not.

Other parents are doing the work for you.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2025 Fall 2014/Summer 2015 - 12/09/14 06:29 PM
You didn't pay for year round (so don't say you did).

But it doesn't matter because they said they would ask about it and acted on it. They set it up with Darby and we were told Saturday at DLT to expect an e-mail this week. Go where you want, my son is getting ready. I hope yours is too.

Don't forget to bring your wallet.

Lol, sad but true. Are parents saying this needs to be 52 weeks a year? I hope not, because after reading this, I need a break! Relax, these kids will be awesome when it counts.

Maybe the team name should be the "Fighting Orange"! Maybe a parent fight during warm ups will get the kids going.

Your kid plays a position already? Isn't it best for them to all play everywhere at this point? Serious question. I want him to get to play everywhere and I believe he is enough of a little athlete to handle each spot.

yes. it's best for kids to play multiple positions (and multiple sports) at 8 yrs old. previous poster has an over emphasis on winning. having fun in the early years leads to passion when it counts. everyone always says "my kid can't get enough" which maybe true right now but sad if they say to you in 7th/8th grade - dad I want to take the summer off. It happens and will more and more as teams start going all year long in 2nd/3rd grade. lax is not gymnastics - no need to peak in elementary school

Not the exception. Same formula used by bandits, honey badgers, smash and crush. All of these teams have something in common....PRACTICE

You guys need to stop and take a breath! Holy crap! My boy plays hoops a little, learns spacing and passing quickly and finding the open man. It totally applies. Throwing the baseball and following through is like his shot, over the top. He is going to DLT and will play indoors with our town indoors and getting ready. He'll be there for whatever practices there are. RELAX!

My son's on the team. Orange needs to practice. I know they're babies, but I thought they would be better. Does Coach know what he's doing? Top team=commitment from both players AND coaches. I'll have him on the Golden Geese next year if this guy's not serious.


You should go now then! We don't want you! And maybe the Geese don't want your poisonous attitude either.
Skills, skills, skills for now! If you listened to the coaches they said they would coach them if it was what we wanted and if we set it up. So watch for an e-mail this week.
I hope you also listened and have your boy at DLT as they recommended because my boy is working harder than yours, I'll guarantee it.

You don't have to agree with me, but my older son has been on Bandits since the beginning. That team was taken much more seriously than this one. They practiced more and at least had a full roster in the fall so they could build continuity. If you're content with mediocre, good for you. Your life will be easy. That's not what I'm paying for.


You are paying for what the said on the tryout sheet, you have already had more practice than that and a tournament. Have you asked the coach and spoken to the 91 office to set it up? I guess not.

Other parents are doing the work for you.


That's the problem. Coaches should want their team to be the best. These guys planned on doing the minimum. I have no problem paying for it, I expected to. I assumed, from what I'd heard about 91, that we would be doing team and DLT all winter and spring. Apparently that's just the White team. With their attitude they'll be better than us in a year or two.

I agree with the other poster. Skills should be worked on at home on their own or at winter training. They seriously need some work as a team so they can find positions for them. Moving from defense to middie to attack is silly, but I guess that's what happens when you only take kids that play middie. [/quote]

Your kid plays a position already? Isn't it best for them to all play everywhere at this point? Serious question. I want him to get to play everywhere and I believe he is enough of a little athlete to handle each spot.[/quote]

yes. it's best for kids to play multiple positions (and multiple sports) at 8 yrs old. previous poster has an over emphasis on winning. having fun in the early years leads to passion when it counts. everyone always says "my kid can't get enough" which maybe true right now but sad if they say to you in 7th/8th grade - dad I want to take the summer off. It happens and will more and more as teams start going all year long in 2nd/3rd grade. lax is not gymnastics - no need to peak in elementary school
[/quote]

Having fun and rotating to every position is great. That's what town teams are for. But this is not a town team. This is a supposed "elite" team (even at this early age) that is for children and parent who are serious about lax. My son is a competitor. He doesn't like to lose. Neither should yours if he is on this team. If you didn't care about winning you would have gone out for a lesser team, but you didn't. Team 91 has a reputation of winning and producing great lax players. This is not an "every kid gets a cookie" team. If that's what you're looking for then maybe YOU should be the one moving on. We need kids to play defense. That's what they should be looking for at tryouts. But they won't. We'll get 6 more weak middies.

If you don't agree with my attitude, too damn bad. He's on the best team. I expect the best from his coaches. Right now I'm not happy with the product they're selling.

LEAVE...YOU ARE A DELUSIONAL JACKA$$! They have already done more than they promised and the organizations results speak for themselves. They know better than you. Weak middies, really? I'm sure your son is the best in your mind, but I'll believe it when I see it, so in the meantime, don't rip the kids. If you have the balls, speak to the coaches yourself. Don't come on here and gutlessly rip the team before it has even started. They have sent you e-mails, you can contact them so send an e-mail back to them and tell them your concerns and give them your wisdom. THEN GET LOST! PLEASE!

May I ask a serious question? How many teams actually provide the minimum that was stated? Very few. And none of the top teams in each age group. The organization's successful teams go far beyond the minimum and that started from jump street. Sure they charge for it, but that's the nature of the beast and you should have expected that when you joined. If I'm not ripping the kids, I'm expressing my feelings about how the team is being handled. I never said we had weak middies. All we have is middies. And, do you think the kids at tryouts yesterday were stronger than the kids at September's tryout? It's possible, but I think not.

Oh, and FYI, they don't know better than me. And I'm damn positive about that.

We're going to get along just great this summer. You want to find me? I'll be the guy staying as far away from your fat [lacrosse] as possible.

Dear 2025 parents - I just red the last few pages and wanted to post about my experiences, I have 4 kids that have gone through the process, my oldest played in college and is out now, when he started I think that travel started in about 5th grade, I have a senior in high school that is signed to play in college and I have a 2017 that is going through the recruiting process right now. The single biggest advice I can share is do what ever you want for your kid and don't me influenced by what other people are doing. If your kid wants to play lacrosse only 24/7 and you are OK with it then do that, if he wants to play 5 other sports and he has fun doing it then let him do that. As I have gone through the recruiting process 3 times I see the exact same things from 2006 and last weekend - grades and athleticism and usually always in that order.

IMHO, up until 8th or 9th grade they will get just as much out of playing soccer, football, tennis, wrestling or basketball as playing organized lacrosse - the best players in my town and the ones going on to play in college all have one major thing in common....they love playing lacrosse, If your dream is to have your son play college lacrosse make sure he loves the game.

Always pick your team by the coaches not the organization or level of play, plenty on kids are going to top colleges that where on b and c teams early on. and those kids spend more time on the wall or shooting at the park by themselves then they ever spend at team practice.

If your son is fighting about not wanting to go to practice then he is probably doing to much, if they don't want to go down to the park and shoot then they are probably doing to much.

Never play for a team that your son is the best player, he will never get better.

good luck to all of you and enjoy the ride, it is over way to fast.

Who says I'm fat? I think I am thin although I could be in a little better shape. You however are delusional and quite gutless. I'm glad you've told the world that you know more Lax than the two Varsity HS coaches, yeah right, now I get it. They have already done more than advertised, not the minimum, and offered to do more. But that isn't enough for you. Next we'll hear how you son doesn't get enough playing time, then it will be something else. I'm sure that you can't get far enough away to please me. The Hurricanes are having additional tryouts soon, that might be far enough.

Trust me, guy, I'm not worried about playing time. I'm worried that the coaches are taking this team too lightly. That's all. How much indoor winter practice, as a team, do you think is a fair amount? The 4 that we were promised or 12-14 weekly practices to help the boys develop as a team? If you're too cheap to pay for it, just let me know and I'll float you a loan. Personally, I think for an extra $250, or less, our team would be exponentially better with 12 -14 team practices. I'll run them myself if the coaches don't want to. Because yes, I do know more about lacrosse than most people.

Sure you do.

All this big talk, now put your money (and time) where your mouth is. Send the e-mail, (it's easy, just hit reply all) and offer to take over, we can set it up at DLT this weekend. It seems to me that you've decided that it is now or never. I'll bring my checkbook.

If you don't agree with my attitude, too damn bad. He's on the best team. I expect the best from his coaches. Right now I'm not happy with the product they're selling.


LEAVE...YOU ARE A DELUSIONAL JACKA$$! They have already done more than they promised and the organizations results speak for themselves. They know better than you. Weak middies, really? I'm sure your son is the best in your mind, but I'll believe it when I see it, so in the meantime, don't rip the kids. If you have the balls, speak to the coaches yourself. Don't come on here and gutlessly rip the team before it has even started. They have sent you e-mails, you can contact them so send an e-mail back to them and tell them your concerns and give them your wisdom. THEN GET LOST! PLEASE!


May I ask a serious question? How many teams actually provide the minimum that was stated? Very few. And none of the top teams in each age group. The organization's successful teams go far beyond the minimum and that started from jump street. Sure they charge for it, but that's the nature of the beast and you should have expected that when you joined. If I'm not ripping the kids, I'm expressing my feelings about how the team is being handled. I never said we had weak middies. All we have is middies. And, do you think the kids at tryouts yesterday were stronger than the kids at September's tryout? It's possible, but I think not.

Oh, and FYI, they don't know better than me. And I'm damn positive about that.

We're going to get along just great this summer. You want to find me? I'll be the guy staying as far away from your fat [lacrosse] as possible.


Who says I'm fat? I think I am thin although I could be in a little better shape. You however are delusional and quite gutless. I'm glad you've told the world that you know more Lax than the two Varsity HS coaches, yeah right, now I get it. They have already done more than advertised, not the minimum, and offered to do more. But that isn't enough for you. Next we'll hear how you son doesn't get enough playing time, then it will be something else. I'm sure that you can't get far enough away to please me. The Hurricanes are having additional tryouts soon, that might be far enough. [/quote]

Trust me, guy, I'm not worried about playing time. I'm worried that the coaches are taking this team too lightly. That's all. How much indoor winter practice, as a team, do you think is a fair amount? The 4 that we were promised or 12-14 weekly practices to help the boys develop as a team? If you're too cheap to pay for it, just let me know and I'll float you a loan. Personally, I think for an extra $250, or less, our team would be exponentially better with 12 -14 team practices. I'll run them myself if the coaches don't want to. Because yes, I do know more about lacrosse than most people. [/quote]

OK Mr.Spallina, can't you just call your brother?

Come on, spallina wouldn't waste his time here on this topic. The only people with these expectations are likely the parents who had boys playing up last year. And only one of those dads thinks he has lax experience.

Took a break from putting up the Christmas decorations to see what's going on in the lax world. This topic is 2nd from the top on the main forum board . Don't have a kid this age, have one out of college and two in college. 1 played DI lax, another is playing now. Word of advice, RELAX!! The venom coming from you parents toward one another is disgusting. Your children see how you speak and behave. Trust me, no matter how good your your little boy is, YOU are making him into a monster. College coaches want coachable kids, team players and those who will work for the better of the team, NOT themselves. The star in 5th grade may never play in high school. The young boy who gets burned out from his father constantly talking lax and living through him will turn away from the sport. Your kids will behave toward others as you do. Set an example, and start on this board. Take time to speak to your kid about his schoolwork, in the end THAT will make all the difference in where he could eventually end up playing lax at the college level! I didn't come on here to preach, just take it from someone who has been there, enjoy these days, they go too fast. In the end what you will hope to raise is a well rounded respectful young man who can stand on his own and make you proud, with or without a lacrosse stick in his hand. Don't bother with the posts, I won't answer. Happy Holidays!

I think the original Spallina quote was sarcasm. That the self identified Bandit dad looking for more practice time was Spallina. I thought it was funny. I guess it wasn't.

Kids at this age should be playing different sports. I bet half of the team needs to improve their reading and handwriting at this age to make the state benchmarks. Some probably just turned 7 this Fall! Having older boys I get the need for team work and positional drills, but honestly, you can't work on plays or as a team when you are still learning to throw and catch, which these kids are still in need of. This winter, the kids would benefit most from picking up a stick and hitting a wall. They need to strengthen skill before they can start to work as a team. Who wants to practice a play to pass the ball when one kid can't throw accurately and another can't catch? Clinics to help them pass and catch would be the best way to spend your money. Once they sharpen those skills, they will be better off working as a team. Oh and in between, you should be reading with them every night for 30 minutes- because that is what will really make a difference in life- their education. Imagine if parents spent this much time wishing their kids could have extra schooling and make the best grades? If parents only put in a quarter of time or money on education as they do in lax kids wouldn't need to worry about lax scholarships because they'd make the team and get academic money. Your kids are young- think clearly and wisely about what they really need to be successful. Your priorities will be their priorities.

that's right. we don't need any insight from old farts with kids in college. it's a new day and the way things are going my 2nd grader will be verbaling in 6th grade so we need to be ready. my kid's a rock star and definitely top 10 class of 2025. I'd contact Petro now for a on campus visit but my kid still eats his boogers at that wrong time so I will wait until next fall

Listen, I'll go just to observe what an excellent, knowledgeable and dedicated coach you are and to see how you handle the kids. If you are all you say you are, then the two HS Varsity coaches we have don't stand a chance. Then with your guidance and leadership and infinite lax wisdom my kid can move up from mediocre where "everyone gets a cookie" to Orange Animal! BUT something tells me I'm better off trusting my 2nd grader with the coaches we have.

Your choice, Spaghetti Legs. I know I'm right and so do you. And yes, that "everyone gets a cookie" [lacrosse] is for PAL teams where skinny, but out of shape, dads can coach using the knowledge they got from a website or watching guys like me.

I smoked Petro when he played for St. Mary's. He couldn't defend the lefties. I'll teach your kid how to do that too. Oh wait, a varsity coach with a losing record can probably show him better.

I don't want to really get involved in this. It's too much fun watching you two go at it. But you are putting a lot of faith in the fact that they are varsity coaches. To be a varsity coach you just need to be a teacher in the district and apply for the opening. Most seniority wins. Connetquot had a total powerhouse before coach took over. they are 20-31 since. I'd like to see coach Nihls take over as HC. He's got a much better coaching pedigree. I'm not as disappointed at the dad posting, but I would love for them to push the boys a little bit.

"Then with your guidance and leadership and infinite lax wisdom" You forgot great job, nice house and hot wife. Do you know why I have all of this? I went to a great school. Do you want to know how I got in there? Lacrosse and grades. Lots of hard work and lots of practice; in the library and on the wall. Can you say the same? I doubt it. I know, 100%, what it takes to be succesfull. The habits of success don't start in HS or college. They start now. Wake up and smell the sweat, Captain Mediocre. It's time to go to work.

The venom coming from you parents toward one another is disgusting. Your children see how you speak and behave. Trust me, no matter how good your your little boy is, YOU are making him into a monster. College coaches want coachable kids, team players and those who will work for the better of the team, NOT themselves. The star in 5th grade may never play in high school. The young boy who gets burned out from his father constantly talking lax and living through him will turn away from the sport. Your kids will behave toward others as you do. Set an example, and start on this board. Take time to speak to your kid about his schoolwork, in the end THAT will make all the difference in where he could eventually end up playing lax at the college level! I didn't come on here to preach, just take it from someone who has been there, enjoy these days, they go too fast. In the end what you will hope to raise is a well rounded respectful young man who can stand on his own and make you proud, with or without a lacrosse stick in his hand. Don't bother with the posts, I won't answer. Happy Holidays!


Get back to your lights, Griswold.


that's right. we don't need any insight from old farts with kids in college. it's a new day and the way things are going my 2nd grader will be verbaling in 6th grade so we need to be ready. my kid's a rock star and definitely top 10 class of 2025. I'd contact Petro now for a on campus visit but my kid still eats his boogers at that wrong time so I will wait until next fall


I hear that Petro has kids doing this and when he is there he never says a word. Maybe our all knowing secret Coach of the Year is just like that!


I smoked Petro when he played for St. Mary's. He couldn't defend the lefties. I'll teach your kid how to do that too. Oh wait, a varsity coach with a losing record can probably show him better.


glad you mention how you got the best of Petro in your hey day. did you know he picked the game up in 9th grade? he become one of the all time greats, arguably GOAT. Keep telling yourself that it's best to train 2nd graders fulltime. and of course since you smoked petro once in 1983 you're a much better coach than most

Wait, I get it now. You actually want me to take it over, don't you? You realized that I'm right and you want more for your kid. Welcome to the darkside.

Listen, I'll go just to observe what an excellent, knowledgeable and dedicated coach you are and to see how you handle the kids. If you are all you say you are, then the two HS Varsity coaches we have don't stand a chance. Then with your guidance and leadership and infinite lax wisdom my kid can move up from mediocre where "everyone gets a cookie" to Orange Animal! BUT something tells me I'm better off trusting my 2nd grader with the coaches we have.



"Then with your guidance and leadership and infinite lax wisdom" You forgot great job, nice house and hot wife. Do you know why I have all of this? I went to a great school. Do you want to know how I got in there? Lacrosse and grades. Lots of hard work and lots of practice; in the library and on the wall. Can you say the same? I doubt it. I know, 100%, what it takes to be succesfull. The habits of success don't start in HS or college. They start now. Wake up and smell the sweat, Captain Mediocre. It's time to go to work.


You think way too much of yourself my friend. Do you have a picture of yourself on your desk? Maybe keep your clippings in a special scrap book to review with the wife and the kids too? Makes me laugh to see how wrapped up in yourself you are. You reply as if you are going to do the work, not the boys. Too funny. Way too funny. Maybe you might consider that you are just a little off kilter?

And as this whole thing started, you were puling your boy off the team to go to the Geese. Go for it, please. If you weren't so fabulously well off I would pay your refund. But I remember thinking and posting that that organization probably doesn't want you either. Now I know I was thinking correctly.

You're breaking my heart, Meatball Chest. I hope I'm able to sleep tonight! This team needs winners. That's what I am. Always have been. My wife was an All-American runner and Olympic alternate (I don't hold the alternate thing against her though). Our kids are winners too. It sucks for you and your kids that you weren't born with the winner gene. Or at least a drive to be the best. You're afraid to push your boy because he may get burned out. News Flash: when kids get burned out it's just a thinning of the herd. The best kids don't burn out. That's what makes them great. I'll bet you my pool house that my son doesn't burn out. Ever. I didn't see your email to the team asking for less practice. It's easy, just hit reply all and then send. Quit complaining, String Bean Arms.

Ha! Have no fear Chicken Balls, I support my kid in every possible way and he loves me beyond expression! He's a chip off the old block, believe me. He's driven to be the best he can be. I appreciate your concern though, Hammer Hands. I'll make you a deal though. When you pull your kid from lax in 4th grade because you don't want to burn him out, I'll sponson his chess club. I'll get them some sweet t-shirts and marble chess boards. I'll even get some of the pieces just like that guy made in Shawshank Redemption. No need to thank me. It'll be my pleasure. You'll find me and my kid hanging like best buds after winning every tourney.

Captain America. I like that! I was always more partial to Tony Stark, but I'll take it! That would make you one of the Wonder Twins then, right? Shape of a bucket! Form of water! Hands down, the weakest and most boring of the Superfriends. And he did last year. And he was great because he has an innate drive to succeed. Unlike this other chump who thinks the team will be successful without consistent practice. Laziness is contagious. Keep away from my son and I. We're winners. We want to work. We don't hide behind minimum requirements. Up your game, coach. I may be the only one saying it, but believe me, more feel the same way.

Do you guys think Fiore and Brock are the reason the Geese have had quick success, or because they have more talent and practice more?

it's like driving past an accident on the side of the road. every one slows down to watch. you 2 are ridiculous.

and don't you know the people who pound their chest about how great they are, how much money they have, etc, are usually the ones with issues in those areas.

want more practice? sign up for a clinic, find him a wall. everything else will fall into place.

Equal talent. When two teams have equal talent, who will win? Let me answer that for you. The team that practices more.

2 + 2 = 4
Talent + Practice = Success

Period.

Done.

Captain America OUT!

First or last, Big Cat. That's the sign on the path to success. You want to let things fall into place? I promise they'll fall into the middle of the pack. Taste that reality, Camel Hoof.

Keep up with the class, Slack Jaw. I want more team practice. He's on the wall every day. He does a weekly clinic. That is not helping the team become more cohesive (that means to become more unified and well integrated. I don't know if the schools in Alabama or Mississippi or wherever you're from teach you those kids of words). Team practices make great teams. Individual practices make great individuals. It's not astrophysics.

Who wrote this? Fiore or Brock? My guess is Brock because when in such a situation you would place the other person's name before your own so to throw off the reader. Smooth move.

Would you rather be loved or feared? You sound pretty hostile and volatile, so my bet is feared. I'll bet you'll be screaming at that awesome kid when he doesn't measure up to your twisted view. Hopefully he can keep up with my boy, he'll be leading in his own way. Just tell Awesome to try to keep up!


And remind him to pay attention to his awesome coaches.

In his own way? What does that mean? He'll be the Line Leader in the parade of mediocrity? No thanks. Not our style. My kid will lead by making pin-point passes and ripping corners. It's what we do, Banana Chin. My view of my kid is spot on. Born to win.

Don't hate me because I'm loved, Baby Teeth. I'm loved because I'm active in my children's lives. You should try it, instead of trying to avoid having to take him to practice. I'll be at practice Chisel Chest. Ill be the one with the awesome kid.


Would you rather be loved or feared? You sound pretty hostile and volatile, so my bet is feared. I'll bet you'll be screaming at that awesome kid when he doesn't measure up to your twisted view. Hopefully he can keep up with my boy, he'll be leading in his own way. Just tell Awesome to try to keep up!


And remind him to pay attention to his awesome coaches.


In his own way? What does that mean? He'll be the Line Leader in the parade of mediocrity? No thanks. Not our style. My kid will lead by making pin-point passes and ripping corners. It's what we do, Banana Chin. My view of my kid is spot on. Born to win.


In his own way, and while he is leading, he'll be watching out for your son too. Don't worry, my boy is a great teammate and because he is talented and works hard he'll be out there when the game is on the line. And you and your son will just say, Thank You!

That's great, Bubble Cheeks. Here's what you need to remember though, we've all seen the team play. I'm not worried about my kid being on the field at the end. He'll be there; being carried on the shoulders of his teammates after the game winner. He's the true player. Strong stick skills, hustles and fights for ground balls, plays defense like a pitbull and has the balls to take the shot when needed. Like I said, a pure winner. Your kid might be good enough to be second best though, Ostrich Calves. Nothing wrong with that.

As Judge Smails said, the world needs ditch diggers too.

That kid better be that good and getting a lot better, but I'd bet not. Unfortunately the whole team and all of us parents will have to deal with you. Worse, the only carrying going on for you will be your boy carrying your enormous ego on his back. Over time it is going to wear him down. And he will know to blame you when he unfortunately figures out that what held him back was you.

Just remember to remind him to say - "Thank You".

From the article - - "The findings indicate that Olympians were involved in an average of three sports per year until age 14, which belies the notion that early specialization is critical to long-term success. Multi-sport play appeared to be beneficial to these Olympians."

Your 2025 thread has become a farce and your kids have barely played lax in their little lives. What- 2 yrs under their belts...? Belts from Carter's or Osh Kosh- their babies. Enjoy your kids and stop responding to some HS kid or actual lunatic.

Nah, the kid wants to go and he loves it....no need to worry about burnout. Anyway, what should he do on a cold day? Stay home and watch tv or play Xbox? Not his style, he is an active kid who loves to learn all kinds of stuff, he is a good little player and a better student (so far). Things like this are rewards for reading books, studying for and doing well on tests (too many of those I think) and doing homework on his own w/o being asked. Try it, be proud of your kid(s) and feel free to let them know that hard work pays off. If that makes me a looney, then I plead guilty.

Is that an invite, Rabbit Feet? Believe me, I put him on 91 because it has a history of winning. Legacy has a history of playing 2nd, 3rd or 4th fiddle. If they are better at the end of the season, then I'm certain my kid will be welcome. He'll be the best on that team too. Swallow those cold hard facts like an ice cube!

No, I'm a winner, Braciole Thumbs. And so is my son. He shouldn't have to play with kids that don't share his drive for greatness, skill and/or intensity. I'd rather him play with kid's whose parents can appreciate the value of hard work. Not with chumps who think practicing in the winter will burn their little babies out. That attitude is weak and pathetic.

Seems like a lot of people are against what this guy is saying. I happen to disagree. If kids do well in school and have the desire to play sports throughout the winter, let them.

Burnout happens when YOU PUSH your kids to do something that they are not inclined to do on their own. That doesn't mean I'm into seeing my kids in 2-a-days, or more than once a week during winter for that matter. But they are 7 yr old kids. Last time I checked, they have endless energy and my kids too love the game and enjoy working hard.

To each their own...

well played. I was suspicious because a world-class [lacrosse] typically won't also make caddyshack references. that fact that we believed you were serious is a sad commentary on the state of youth sports

Why does a coach tell the team to show up an hour before the game begins and then he strolls in 10 minutes before the game starts, if you are not going to take this serious then you should consider not coaching . We all know the coaches do not pay to play but the entire team does and it is not right !!!!

They are doing it for the free tuition not to coach and teach the kids, I have never seen coaches have 2nd graders during practice do line drills 40 yards long and do it for 45 minutes, keep that for your less then average high school team .

These guys have zero clue how to coach little kids but the one thing they do know is to never have there kid off the field. The last tourney they both were on the field and having zero clue as to what was going on the sideline, not one time did they try to teach the kids anything about the game .....

There are expectations that come along with coaching a 91 A team. It doesn't matter if a player is 8 or 18. The coach should take it as seriously as the parents. Lacrosse has changed greatly in the last 5 years. If he has the wrong attitude, find a new coach.

curious? Did you voice your concerns to your coach before bad mouthing him in an open forum anonymously no less? Doubt it. Did you ever think that maybe there is a very sound logical reason for his delayed arrival? Give your sons coach the benefit of the doubt. For the love of God. There needs to be a mutual respect or you're in for a long and extremely stressful summer. Take a little advice: If you want to foster a good relationship with a coach you don't start out bashing them on an open, anonymous, forum. If you have a problem contact him like an adult. The other side of that is... Someone is always looking to get their foot in the door. If you keep up that bitching guaranteed one of your sideline buddies will give you up and chances are he already did. Happens all the time. Most of the time it's the guy your standing next to the whole tourny. Whoever it may be, rest assured it always gets back to the coach. Speaking of your coach, Seems to me that he is doing a good job so far. If you think differently...leave. It happens. Sometimes it's not a good fit. One thing is certain.. everyone is replaceable. Especially 7 or 8 year olds and especially on a 91 team. Just don't be a cancer and spread your negativity to the parents on the sidelines. They don't deserve it, whether you know it or not you'll be know as that downer that everyone sighs at when they see the sight of you because you bring the black cloud with you. Every team has 1 or 2. These parents are there to enjoy a nice day of lacrosse and watch there little guy play. Do yourself a favor don't respond, don't waste your time. I imagine your pissed off right now. That's OK... I'm sure I hit a nerve. Truthfully, I wasn't trying to. I am just offering some wisdom a wise man once gave me. Apologies, if you don't like it. As for your coach, If you feel as though you can do it better well then by all means...step up. Otherwise sit down, shut up, and enjoy the ride. It can be a great one if you let it. Or you can sit there miserable, stone faced like someone just ran over your dog over some second grade lacrosse. Choice is yours

troll here...

I think you are half right. The part that no one likes a Debbie downer. Another part is when on 91 or any other team you can be replaced.

The part I think you don't get is, people are paying good money to get coaching and organization. Stop thinking you owe these teams anything but the fee. These teams owe you, you pay them, you are paying for a service. They need to understand they need to provide the service to an acceptable expectation. You are the customer.

Sure they all give you a minimum expectation but if you have an issue sometimes it is best to air your issues to the coach and organization. Other times this is a very good forum to open peoples eyes.

One thing is 2025's are young. There is no substitute for dad having a catch with them and playing fiddle sticks and fooling around in the yard or street or watching the college or HS games.

I hope the coach had a good reason for being late (it happens) and I hope for the boys it isn't a show of things to come. it is a fun ride when everybody gets along and everyone plays their part parent/coach/player.

Bengals 2025 has 3rd graders on it too. Embarrassing for a new programs that claims they do everything the right way.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: 2015 LI LAX FEST - 06/28/15 02:04 PM
The Bengals are an embarrassment. They make teams with 13 kids on it with different grades. And they are horrible. The market is flooded with so many organizations. You are going to see more organizations combining grades just to fill
out a team. These guys are all educators who are trying to grab money where ever
they can. Just finish out this year and sail off into the sunset.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: 2015 LI LAX FEST - 06/28/15 07:59 PM
The team you questioned had 3 teams at McGrath and won the championship with 2 of them. 2025 was all 2nd graders and won, 2019 was a mix of about 60% 7th graders playing up and the rest were 8th in their natural bracket and won. 2021 played their first game against a team that had at least 6 7th/8th graders as they are from the same general area and everyone knows those kids. They are also the same kids they played all game and still only won by a couple of goals. Plus it's the worst I've seen that team play - not only that game all tournament long. They deserved to lose. 2021 went 1-2 losing to that team and another that ended up winning the whole tournament in that bracket they were very good from Franklin Square.

As a parent with my kid on one of the three teams and this being our first year with them. We actually stayed to watch their younger team play and it was the best game we saw all day. It literally came down to the last second. Both teams played great!

All games we saw not even ours were competitive and the tournament is run for the right reasons. THESE ARE KIDS! I know we forget that but it's kids and they had fun and it was well run. We hope we are back there next year.

I'm sure the Bengals will try to steal more money next year. They charge you as a travel team yet they play town tourneys. So lame. Having 3rd graders on a 2nd grade team is terrible. Time to close up shop fellas.

The 2025 team was not all 2nd graders there were 3rd graders on that team.

Based on information I've heard it was a single 3rd grader. You'd have to talk to the coach to find out if it was intentional or not. One player doesn't change a game though.

You should ask the ****** educators how many older players they had on their teams this weekend.

There are plenty of opportunities for 3rd graders to play on 3rd grade teams. The parents should be embarrassed if they are having their kid play down.

Cheating is cheating 9VC

You guys need to get a hobby or something. It's a team game one player doesn't decide the game. Stop being sore losers and move on already. Not everyone knows everyone else's situation so unless you know the story behind it you need to stop.

what about the multiple fast breaks in the last minute they could have scored on and won the game on but missed all while the 3rd grader was on the sideline? Did they break the rules sure did it effect the outcome not at all. It was ONE 3rd grader who wasn't even the biggest or best player on the team.

I'd be more worried about the other teams that had kids 2 and 3 years older playing down where there was a significant difference.

You should totally make them give their medals back because taking them from 2nd graders is the right thing to do and will really make everyone feel better.

**disclaimer I am not part of any of the teams but was there as part of the tournament and am part of the PAL and have been following this since the start**

They are a joke, they claim to be a select elite travel team. They know they can't compete with the other 3rd grade teams so they claim to be 2nd graders. They barely beat the 2nd grade town teams that they played. Just another over priced joke organization with no class that has to lie & cheat to win a tournament, pathetic!!!

I know
Legacy, Empire, Hurricanes, 91, Bengals and Express.

It was just one I think you need to check your sources. For scoring check out tourney machine you are incorrect as well. Fom looking at their website I don't see where they claim to be elite. Can't comment on pricing because I didn't see it. I think I stood really check your sources first.

If you want the correct information call the tournament directors hey will be happy to fill you in.

They are a team that has tryouts and cut kids that would classify them as elite, as far as their play on the field it was far from elite, that's probably why they had 3rd graders playing down in the 2nd grade division.

There is a reason why that one of the coaches got let go at his main lax job, he can not coach second graders never mind HS kids. Hopefully people will let the directors know just how bad this entire experience was .The worst thing of it all is that people actually paid good money for the worst COACHING I have ever Seen.

It's not easy to be the B team at this grade. Young kids plus 2/3 brackets plus high expectations from parents. That is the unfortunate truth. BUT, The kids on 91 White got very good coaching and lots of practice. Hope the parents are not going nuts that they don't win. They shouldn't.

I was asking myself the same question. It's one thing to talk about the actual age group or team in an intelligent or observant manner, but it's another thing to call a team of young kids a joke. It speaks to the sad lives of some people...(here comes "your kid must play on empire bla bla bla")

Well 91Orange we have something to celebrate. I heard over the weekend that Coach B is officially done with us. He's going to Legacy. My brother coaches with Legacy and confirmed it. It wouldn't surprise me if he tried to take our best players with him. Good riddance to him and any that go with him.

I have no connection to 91, but am interested to know how their "umbrella team names" affects the individual experiences of the kids on the team. So what if they have shared ownership with Empire, Hurricanes, 91 tristate, etc. How does this affect the product?

And what does "get their hands into everything" and "became all about the money" mean? Where they not "for profit" before? Is their product any different now than it was a few years ago? And if yes, how?

Get real. The "Umbrella" teams are all feeder programs for 91's A and B teams. It's just going to make them stronger. 2025 will work itself out once they find a committed coach and then they will be the top teams in the division. That's just how it works.

How do they have momentum? By poaching a 2025 coach who has other commitments all the time and doesn't do much extra? By winning by a couple of goals in the 1 tourney they played against 91 early in the season? That is a lot of organizational weight to put on a bunch of 8 year olds, don't ya think?
I'm not really sure what you think, but I think you will see a different scene next year. Just take a look at 2021. Now they have 91 himself. And if you play there, isn't it a given you would want to play for someone who bleeds 91 orange.

Hold up. Are you saying that no one has a shot at moving to 2025 Orange? Ever? You're seriously delusional or insanely ignorant. Over the next 6 years, kids on those "umbrella" teams are going to develop, mature and improve. The best ones will be picked annually to replace the small, slow, immature, etc... player on Orange. Yes. That's going to happen. That's the nature of travel lax and especially 91.

People get so hung up on the A team B team thing! At this age what does it even matter?
Do you really thing by the time they get to high school they will ever wonder what team they played on or if they were ever the high scorer in 2nd grade? The colleges will not even care what travel team you played for? I presently have one on the varsity level and one in 2025, let the young ones enjoy the game , let them make friends and stop dwelling on the fact that they are right now a B team! And no my 2025 is not on 91 nor on a B team , just wish some parents would take a step back before they burn these 8 year old old kids out!

A&B teams in 2025 lax?? really? they barely know how to play. what's the qualifications for making the A team? catching? you only have a couple at that age can do that consistently.

In the end it's all about the money $$$$$. No one cares about the kids, including the coaches and staff. They just care how many more kids they can get to sign up for next season. If all these teams cared about the kids tryouts would be free. Yes I said try outs.

Just took kids to busch gardens in virginia, had a great time. 1500 for weekend. Great time. Its a business like everything else. Nothing is free. Travel lax is a big business. You can always choose to not do it.

That is 100% incorrect. ESPECIALLY in 91. Their 2nd teams are better than most A teams as it is. They cherry-pick them all the time. You have no clue what you're talking about.

Ask 2019 Orange... Ask Smash... Ask Bandits... Ask Extreme. All have taken kids from the 2nd team. And not just a few. Those are just the ones I know about. Get a grip, guy.

You are employed by 91 because you actually named every team to stop people from leaving your organization. Please don't leave we will move your kid to the Orange team if you kiss enough [lacrosse].. Didn't smash just get beat by the B team,, guess they didn't move the right kids. Lmao

91 Orange is also the 2nd gr team- obviously you are new to 91- orange is A and white is b for many years- only recently did teams start having names.

2nd grade 91 orange got beaten by sachem today. However, I can't believe people are all crazed over the 2nd gr games- why a brave heart in 2nd gr. isn't that a bit over the top for 7 yr olds? Sad. Congrats to both teams making it to a tie in the championship. Hopefully they are all eating ice cream and looking forward to an early evening at the park.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: 2015 LI LAX FEST - 07/19/15 10:34 PM
yes very over the top. no I'm not really new to 91. just that I always thought orange was 2021 A team. I coach a couple kid's on a [lacrosse] team who play there. didn't know they shared a name. and as for the "sachem" team beating them. the particular "sachem" organization who beat them has always been little brother in lacrosse to the larger sachem sports club. after fourth or fifth grade.....little brothers lacrosse player usually go to sachem sports club. but anyway nice victory beating another second grade team. was that like when John F Kennedy said in his state of address speach......"why does rice play texas?......" they're in second grade. on any given day 91 at any level will dismantle town teams. and as for the braveheart. I agree with the previous poster. let it end in a tie. they don't care. I bet after the game either way.....both teams were looking for the Italian ice guy and forgot about win loss or tie already

it was really sad to see the 91 2025 white team forfeit their game against 91 2025 orange 15 mins in so orange could go to a championship . Way to go coach Gavin chamberlain way to show 6 and 7 year olds who to compete. How could you do that to little kids, and the parents who spent all that money to travel up there, that shows what type of person you really are. And 91 got what they deserved in the long run, they got beat by a 15 player less experienced "TOWN TEAM" yes a "TOWN TEAM". Little brother or little sister still a "TOWN TEAM"

Next year you coach the team dope. Gavin Chamberlain is a close personal friend. take your kid and put him on another team next year or start your own. you're right they're 6 or 7 years old......the only one who cared about them playing in or winning a championship is you. what did you go home and stomp your feet like a two year old? did you yell that's it...next year we're winning the 8 year old championship and I'm coaching the team!!! Guy relax it's 7 year old lacrosse. don't be that idiot parent no one wants to sit next to in the stands bcuz of your big mouth. I'm more than positive it's not as serious as youre making it. they have plenty of time to "compete" for a championship tough guy. relax they're 7.

Thats a shame, you should chose your friends better buddy. He has no right coaching kids, he has no clue. You don't show little kids it's ok to quit so another team can go further. I don't even have a kid on his team Einstein, so why don't you go tell Gavin he needs to wake up and start caring about the kids and not just collecting a pay check.

There are probably more different kids from different towns on syag, then 91. Its ok. There is norhing wrong with that. Just don't say 91 lost to a town team because that isn't true.

Posted By: Anonymous Re: 2015 LI LAX FEST - 07/20/15 01:03 PM
If that's true, then that is really weak. It's OK to lose. Losing makes kids want to win that much more. It teaches them life lessons about the value of hard work and setting goals. Forfeiting teaches acceptance of failure. Not something that we should be allowing young kids to get a taste of. That's shameful.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: 2015 LI LAX FEST - 07/20/15 01:16 PM
I'd rather have my kid lose than forfeit. What that showed the kids on the B team is we don't think you can beat the A team never mind the other team. That was unfair to all the kids and parents who paid good money to see their children TRY to get to the Championship game not let's get the league to win the championship. I agree with they are only 7 and the actions displayed by the coaches this weekend has me thinking twice about the kind of league 91 is.

I'm not sure about that. From a parent perspective, we are paying for an elite product, ie: top-notch coaching, quality training, etc... I don't believe that the "top team" in an age group should lose to a town team comprised of 1st and 2nd graders. With all due respect, it's not what we're paying for and its a clear reflection of the coaching.

You can teach a 7 year old to pass and dodge. You can teach him to accept failure. The action is indefensible.

In the end both teams played there hearts out!! They are 7-8 and they played in over 90• weather. There is no need to bash the towns these kids live in, they worked hard and won. I'm sure they will meet again at another tournament and the kids will play to win again! As for 91 what they did was wrong and those kids worked hard all weekend to play. I'm sure this was a weekend of fun,memories, and friends for both teams!!
Posted By: Anonymous Re: 2015 LI LAX FEST - 07/20/15 03:53 PM
The team that got the wrong end of things was Moontown (I have no idea who they are or where they are from). As per Tourney Machine, the forfeit was for the last scheduled game, and it ensured that Orange made the CG at the expense of Mootown. The heat can not be used as an excuse because if it was too hot for the forfeited game, than it was too hot for the CG.

91 appears to be a great organization. They clearly know how to coach, and I can only assume the kids have fun and are getting better, simply because there are no shortage of families lining up to have their sons play with them. This seems to have been a poor business decision. This is a 91 owned tournament that appears to lack enrollment other than from 91 owned teams. What are teams going to think when word spreads as to what happened to Mootown? Not the best action to take if you want to attract non-91 clubs. And please, spare me with the "they are only 8 years old ... who cares ..." nonsense. If this is true, than why even have a championship game? I am sure the Mootown kids would have liked to have had an opportunity to have one more game.

It just seems to me that if I am running a for-profit tounament I would want the most teams possible. More teams means more profit. If it were also true that teams from clubs I own were competing, I would do everything in my power to be as gracious and sporting to my "guests" as possible, and eliminate even the perception of favoritism for my own clubs. I would think this would attract more business in the future. I know 91 wants to win 'ships for marketing purposes, but they will win plenty on merit alone.

White was down 4 or 5 to 1, 20 minutes into the game. The building lost power, lights went out, fans were shut down for half of that. The end result of that game was already determined, so all the chatter on here is nonsense. Kids safety comes first, believe it or not. If it really is a bunch of SAC parents posting on here, focus more on teaching your kids how to play the game correctly rather than 2 kids running the team and committing cheap fouls. Rest of the SAC families should be pissed their kids didn't see the ball. 91 will be just fine going forward when it matters. For the rest of the SAC kids, great job this weekend. Keep playing the game the right way, you have a lot to be proud of.

Hitch our trailers? You guys are out of control! Who cares where a seven year old lives or comes from?!? You people in this feed are out of control! 91 lost, syag lost blah blah blah!
It's a game people by the time these kids grow up hopefully the parents do as well! What was done this past weekend was a disgrace and rumor has it 91 is pulling all there teams from stony brook this weekend as well so they don't have to play! What are you people doing and teaching these kids? Let them play the damn "game" let them be kids and stop trying to live threw your kids! You guys have a long way to go, most of these kids at this rate will not even be playing at the high school level if u keep this crap up!
I blame the coaches for this past weekends actions shame on them!
My child was not even there thank god!!!

I am the author of the post immediately above this one, and I have no connection whatsoever to anything in Sachem. According to tourney machine the game referenced above and the GC were played at the same field (which I believe is the indoor field). Did it get fixed in time for the GC? Did they move the GC outdoors and just didn't update tourney machine? As for the outcome being in doubt, this is not necessarily true, since Orange needed a win, and to beat out Mootown for the tie-breaker. If it was goals against, its possible White would have scored some as the game carried on.

Mootown should have been in the championships not 91. The other team forfeited so the A team could be in the championships.

Forfeit means you didn't play. They played half the game, they were down 4 goals. Power went out, fans shut off, bathrooms were locked, it was like playing in a sauna. The game was over.

It was 5 or 6-1 and his kids were getting pounded. The coach did the right thing. I watched parts of it from the space between the fields adjacent to the bubble to see kids whose parents I know. I saw they played with heart but according to the parents their schedule was both finalist teams and the boys were out of gas. From the few minutes I saw it was not competitive but the kids did not quit. The coach made a good call.

It was a 5 team tournament with a 4 game schedule. Every team played the same schedule.
Pounded in the sense of getting physically abused? I doubt it. And your contradicting yourself. If they played with heart and did not quit, than why was it the correct call to end the game. Arguably it would have been ok if the boys were quiting. But if they are playing with heart and not quiting, why not let them keep going.
So in the future, any time a team is down by 4 or 5 goals, but is still playing with heart and not quiting, the coach should pull the plug? Not many lacrosse games are going to get finished I guess.
My sons team was down 5-1 at halftime in another tournament this past weekend and won the game. It was hot and they were out of gas also.

Your missing the point. Not everyone had the same amount of games per day. Hear the point before you just type. The power shut down, bathrooms were unusable, there were no use of the fans. Kids were almost, it was like 110 degrees indoors. They were playing on fumes. In this rare situationx coach made a good call. Taking my child to hospital on a hershey 8 yr old lacrosse tournament would have sucked. The field was like playing in a dessert. I never , ever quit, however this was a wise call.

91 appears to be a great organization. They clearly know how to coach, and I can only assume the kids have fun and are getting better, simply because there are no shortage of families lining up to have their sons play with them. This seems to have been a poor business decision. This is a 91 owned tournament that appears to lack enrollment other than from 91 owned teams. What are teams going to think when word spreads as to what happened to Mootown? Not the best action to take if you want to attract non-91 clubs. And please, spare me with the "they are only 8 years old ... who cares ..." nonsense. If this is true, than why even have a championship game? I am sure the Mootown kids would have liked to have had an opportunity to have one more game.

It just seems to me that if I am running a for-profit tounament I would want the most teams possible. More teams means more profit. If it were also true that teams from clubs I own were competing, I would do everything in my power to be as gracious and sporting to my "guests" as possible, and eliminate even the perception of favoritism for my own clubs. I would think this would attract more business in the future. I know 91 wants to win 'ships for marketing purposes, but they will win plenty on merit alone.



Long e-mail based on no info. Score was 6-1 and White was getting crushed. They were not going to win and it was more likely a kid would get hurt.

Mootown gave up 17 goals, 91 Orange 9, The score was 6-1 when the game was ended and there was no way that White was going to score 8 goals so Mootown could advance. 91 Orange defense never gave up more than 4 goals in regulation in any of their games.

The championship game was scheduled at the same field shortly after this game was aborted. Where was that game played? If at the same indoor location, were the sundry issues with the facility fixed?

Power came on about an hour after it went out. It was a field 25 yards bigger than normal. Beyond hot. It was like a game in arizona.

SYAG was around long before Sachem sports club. Little brother I don't think so. People who care more about ALL the kids and not just looking to have the best A team out there Yes. Well I think this 2nd grade little brother team beat there "older brothers" as you put it during the season. No everyone one does not move there just some kids that get continuous pressure from that organization with the promise of you'll only play in hs if you play here. Like they tried with my oldest, but he stayed in SYAG started in HS and is now a starter in college.

Hey do you read prior posts, or do you just write. The point, for the 3rd time, it was awful conditions. It was 110 on the field, power went out, do you get it. No power. No bathrooms, no fan ventilation, field was extra large. Kids were going to pass out. Going to hospital to get iv shots at hershey dosent sound fun. The game I agree, no team should stop until final whistle, this was a rare case. Do you understand. Just watching game we were drenched. Kids were so wet, it looked like they went swimming. Its like playing in a sauna. Now lets hear another genius post its not good to quit.

Your wrong, inside was worse on a bigger field. 110 degrees on field. 8 yr old kids. Not an excuse, its a fact. Bolt of lightning is dangerous. This is not as dangerous , but unsafe for 2 nd grade kids. Do you hear the last sentence. 2 nd grade kids. Coach made a good move, normally this would be awful, but he was right om sunday. Goodluck.

Posted By: Anonymous Re: 2015 LI LAX FEST - 07/21/15 09:03 PM
So lets try to get some closure to this back and forth.

Power goes out which shuts down the fans, causing it to be too hot for safe play. Game is therefore aborted.
Instead of going home, 91 orange and SYAG decide to wait to see if power comes on - similar to waiting out a thunder storm. They are led to believe that with the fans spinning, it would no longer be unsafe to play.
After about an hour, power is back up. The fans spin. The temps cool just a bit. Its decided that its safe to play.

I don't have a problem with any of this if all of this is true, although my opinion means nothing I guess.

The better question, is why have a summer tournament played indoors. Seems stupid and unecessary. To the extent that I have a say, and I might, I will try to avoid this one in the future.

And I don't get the constant reference to bathrooms being shut down. What did that have to do with the facility losing power? Did they have electronically controlled locks that shut down when power was lost?

After reading your post. Leave it at this, because I was there. I don't know nor care if you were. It was almost unplayable. 15 kids playing on 130 yard field, unable to cool off. When power was on , kids sat in aircondirioner between games in lobby area. Picture sitting on a hot beach, but no ocean. It sucked. I never quit anything in my life, I never would allow my kids to quit. This was a wise choice to call this game at the half. The bathroom reference means when you want to go wet your face like a human, you are unable to. The doors were locked. Ok do you understand.

That's bull. White quit the game so orange could face Syag. White and orange's game started at 1:15 and the ended at 1:33. Then the orange coaches (Steve Costelo) approached the Syag coach asking him to push up the championship game to 2pm instead of 2:45 even knowing the power was out. Power had nothing to due with canceling the game. The power was out while the championship was going on and was out the whole time. 91 is a fraud and anyone who buys into their program beware. They can not take losing and it's a joke. Just face it you lose and get on with it. Just like they will lose at Stony Brook this weekend.

So let's assume that white was going to lose anyway. How does this effect Mootown's ability to make the championships? Was it a goals against thing? Did they get screwed because white handed the game to orange without potentially scoring another goal or two? If so, I'd be mad as heck of I was on Mootown...
Posted By: Anonymous Re: 2015 LI LAX FEST - 07/21/15 11:02 PM
I think it was goals against. White needed to score a lot of goals. I wish the coaches made the game 45 minutes earlier. 45 minutes more In my hotel pool drinking my blue moons.

It was more than a goal or two, but that is exactly the problem. There was a lot of time left and anything could have happened. Orange was playing very poorly and had just lost to a team that white had beaten handily the day before. Had white scored more goals, Moontown would go to finals and and orange would not have, regardless if orange was able to win the game. I don't want to hear "it was 2nd grade", because third graders were playing back to back games in the scorching sun outside and the heat index was 108 degrees. They were fine.

This is what you don't understand. If the bathrooms were locked for the aborted game than they were also locked for the championship game as well as other games. This is what's called a fixed variable. Therefore, it's irrelevant that the bathrooms were locked.

I can absolutely imagine the impressive conditions on Sunday. I was watching lacrosse elsewhere with the benefit of the occasional breeze and fresh air. What frustrates a lot of people is the blind adhearance to the idea that conditions were unsafe for lacrosse without any acknowledgement of the fact that a full game was started and completed shortly thereafter.

The field was the same size as the other turf field outside as well as the grass ones. 130 yards? It was a standard multi-use field. Now you're really making up some weird and weak excuses. Was it hot. [lacrosse] yes it was. Was it just as hot outside? You bet. No wind out there either. And no shade. I don't remember any of the other several hundred people outside being afforded a chance to "wet their faces like humans" either. It was hot. Give the kid lots of water like everyone else. The excuses are pitiful.

Having 8 penalties dosent make a team tough. They were the same team 91 beat up saturday. They gave away a goal to start and lost in a braveheart. Oh and ps, that team is not sachem.

Wawawa bottom line 91 lost. Parents on sachem team paid $80 to play in Hershey and WIN and 91 parents paid $1200 plus to lose. Such is life. And your 100% correct sachem had a ton of penalties, showing their kids lack experience in playing. But in the end they still won. That shows something.

Wasn't going to happen, the score was 6-1 and was going to be 12 -2 by the time they were done. 91 had already beaten SLAG and MooTown lost to SLAG by 8. The two teams in the final were the right teams.

Maybe SYAG can double down on this past weekend and get into the Lax Clash. They won't even have to leave town. And their third graders are already playing so they won't have far to go to get any extra help.

Everyone just give this a rest. If 91 had the white team forfeit so Orange could face Sachem shame on them. If they didn't and were just protecting their kids that makes things better the only one who knows the answer is the coach. As far as other towns being on the Sachem team who cares really. The end result is 91 a travel team lost to Sachem a town based team. Game over until next year. We are supposed to be adults and bashing where these kids come from is unnecessary and well as childish.

The truth is those kids were mostly from Sachem. The other truth is that most were going into 3rd grade, but 4 are going into 2nd! 91 Orange is going to see big changes. Too many losses and most of the good kids will follow coach to Legacy's B team. Hysterical!

91 can't handle the truth because it hurts plus they know, it was their tournament. They have all records of players ages and locations. They did everything in their power to try to beat that "Sachem Team" and in the end that group of 2nd graders played their little hearts out and left everything on the field like the coach told them to. You guys can say whatever you want , that is a moment where the so called trailer park trash of Sachem punch big business in the gut and never looked back. That is something those boys will never forget. What happened that day was a lot bigger then winning a t shirt or medal. In the end they had fun and they won. Hats of to those little guys whatever u clowns want to call them. But the one thing they can not be called is loser of Hershey.

You still snap their helmets for them and leave their uniform out on their bed because they are little kids and all you grown ups sound ridiculous! This game should have ended in a tie- to put two seven year old kids in a brave heart is wrong. The tournament allowed it so what is done is done- Sachem won- congrats, enjoy the win.

In 2 years half these kids will play for 91, Express, Some will stay, some will quit altogether. Now please, go play with your little guys because they will grow up faster than you can blink and no one really will care about a 2nd grade win for more than those 5 minutes, except you.

I agree, but why does thid 1 idiot keep saying sachem. There is no locati on list, age list you fool its ok. Be honest. Its not illegal. Northport, melville, islip, smithtown kids are on syag. If our kidsdidn't play these kids in PAL you can argue this. Its no big deal. Syag won hershey, stop saying sachem. Syag is multitown. Its ok. Stop trying to say its not. We know.

Even if they were from different towns, a team that doesn't practice much together beat the 91 Orange. If they were as strong as all of the other top 91 teams that never would have happened. It's an off year for 91. No big deal. 2021 is the same way.

Yeah town team, they all live on the same street, and go to the same elementary school. Syag consists of several towns. So when you say town, you sound so stupid. We know kids who play on various PAL teams , not sachem. Syag won. Do you understand moron. We know. Now get lost.

I was there also. The heat was unbearable for on Sunday???YET... on Saturday, which was equally as hot, it was OK to play. It should be noted that two other teams played, (did not forfeit) THREE games on Saturday. 91 played TWO. How convenient. Then when 91 has to play 3 games on Sunday all of a sudden it is too hot and all about safety. They could care less about the other kids on Saturday who were in the same position as they were on Sunday. Its called Karma.

There was not 150 kids trying out for the SYAG team, I'm sure of that. 91 Orange is a weak team. The only top 91 team that would NEVER play up. That SYAG team had 1st graders playing. 1st graders. My kid was one of them. Accept that you lost to a better team. The only two kids on that team that were better than average were the big face off kid and the righty attackman. The rest could be swapped out with just about anyone from any team that can catch a lax ball. They'll all be gone within a year or two.

You show your complete ignorance of the game with such stupid comments, and worse you beat your chest and say 91 Orange is a weak team but they beat SYAG 5-2 and then tied them 4-4 and lost the Braveheart. What does that say for your boys team? Make sure that you go collect some bottles and scrape together the entry fee to get into some Tournaments this fall or next year so you can give it another go. The 91 website will post the schedules of all their teams or you could just ask the SYAG parents that also have 91 kids. They are not difficult to find and those boys already have more guts than you ever will.

You both ought to be ashamed of yourselves. Fighting over 8 year old boys lacrosse. I thought the idea of lacrosse at this age was for the kids to have fun and learn how to play the game correctly. The both of you should realize that this is not about you it's about the kids, the both you should think twice about what you write and how you act when your on the sidelines for the sake of all of the boys involved.

There is a great video series with Coach Danowksi where he calls out his son Matt and asks, do you remember when you won the King Kullen Cup when you were 9. Matt says no. Point here is that two highly skilled men know this is all irrelevant at such a young age. Fantastic to watch the loser parents on the sidelines jumping up and down screaming. Sit back and enjoy this very short ride, try not to ruin your child along the way.

Who's the ignorant one? 91 orange beat syag in syag's THIRD game on Saturday.
The syag kids were exhausted. Note: they may have lost, but they didn't quit. But since it was a 91 tournament 91 orange only had 2 games on Saturday. Way to beat an exhausted team that had no option to have their 2nd game cut short and have a nice lil rest. Get your facts straight before you speak. And name calling, really???

Do you people realize how ridiculously stupid you sound? These are 8 year old kids! Anyone can beat anyone on any given day. SYAG beat Mootown on Saturday, Mootown beat Orange Sunday, Orange beat SYAG Saturday, SYAG beat Orange Sunday, even White played a good game against SYAG, in it until the final goal with less than a minute. The point is, WHO CARES??? If the results of an 8 year old lacrosse tournament have that much of an impact on your life you should seek counseling because you have a serious problem.

End this already!! I wasn't even there! They are 7 & 8 year olds. They played there best this weekend. Your right Sachem did lose against orange but they won at the end. These kids are still babies a braveheart, I feel bad for both of those goalies one of them was going to be going off the field crying. Congrats to both teams and especially those goalies!!

This is the saddest thread on this site. I hope these clubs don't start k-1 competition travel team because parents are crazy and at this stage in the game, it should be about fun and learning, not over who beat who by one goal in OT in. 97 degrees. Just crazy- it's a long, long road and you should try to be supportive and enjoy it as you WATCH your kids learn and grow to love the game. It's about the kids- leave it all on the fields like they do.

Empire has won plenty, thanks for asking! On that note get a grip, this is too soon to start with this we will beat you into the ground crap, they are little kids! I watched SYAG play over e weekend, they played well, but so did a lot of other teams. A lot can happen on any given weekend.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: 2015 LI LAX FEST - 07/24/15 12:39 AM
Enough is enough people! It has been almost a week and this crap is still going on. Double numbers Sachem is hiding something: no truth is late registration kids will and do have the same numbers if anyone notices Sachem doesn't have names on the back of their jerseys. It was too hot: it was just as hot for the Sachem kids as it was for the 91 kids. It was a great game played by 2 great teams which ended in a Braveheart. SACHEM WON let's leave it as that. Yes I am a Sachem parent who has not nor will bash 91 kids they played one [lacrosse] of a game. I don't know know if 91 had the B team forfeit so the A team could play (pretty crappy if true) what I do know is our kids played hard and thanks to our number 16 we won. Look forward to another great game next year.

Great post. SYAG won. Not sachem. It makes your post even better if you were completely accurate. Lacrosse world isn't very large is suffolk. Parents know other parents and kids, what teams they play for especially the good ones. We play 10 games in april and may remember. We know. Congrats to SYAG. Good game.

Calling 8 year olds terrible is so sad. And the directors do care and more importantly the coaches really care. Can we post responsibly, there is long road ahead for this group and no need to be so negative. Would you walk up to an 8 year old and call them terrible? I don't think so. Can we all just be respectful to the kids.

Kids aren't terrible, the organization is at this age and as a result so is the team, they will be 9 next year and you will see that it starts to matter to them if they are good in comparison to their buddies. If you son is good enough for Orange or Geese you have to let them give it a shot. Otherwise you are doomed to be in the middle of the pack.

Go on the other threads for different years to hear the teeth grinding from parents on those teams

Good for you, glad you are happy. Sometimes that is enough. If your boy is any good, and he is a real competitor, give him a shot at the few top tier teams. Express hasn't shown much interest in the lower grades so you might be disappointed in the long term.

91 Orange is not in a good place. They are not winning. The coaches are not coming back. One coach is trying to steal players. They will be fine in the long run though. Everyone just needs to take a deep breath, trust the organization and their track record and stay the course. Now is not the time to panic Orange.

Teams and tryouts are popping up everywhere. Where does a parent bring a fairly new player to tryout. A good athlete, but just getting him into lacrosse now. Third grader.

Not only coaches but where the teams will be based out of.

Does he play PAL? Can he catch and throw? Ever been to a clinic? There has to be someone you know that has and has seen him play with some experience to help you figure it out. I will say that even with all of the muck you read on this board, when you actually ask someone for help, most (not all) go out of the way to steer you the right way.

Even a couple of years ago you could try out for teams inexpensively (including Legacy for FREE 2 years ago), now it costs 50 - 100 bucks, so choose wisely and realistically. You and your boy do not need an expensive lesson.

Try, if possible to pick a place local to you. Practices can be 3 times a week.

and sometimes named coaches are not good with kids. Make sure they are used to little guys. Lax is not the same for 8 year olds as it is for 13.

He is out there early, before practices and games warming up our boys and hsving a catch with 7, 8 kids at a time. He is loud on sidelines, but I'd take him and his kid anytime on my team. He should have been a volunteer dad coach for our team.

I agree, coach is very important, but location is big too. Some of these teams play out east. Traffic, work, it gets hectic.

There are several good B teams, for a more beginner player. Do a little research before you spend a couple thousand. Some are good, some are poorly ran.

My opinion would be to ask people to share their experience about with a team and coach. I have found that to be the most important criteria for me.

Agreed. Ask some of your friends who have kids who play. Everyone wants your money. Remember that. Be selective, I agree with other guy. Location is important.

Non stop with these organizations. Soon 1st grade teams. My prediction in 2 years first graders will have teams. Money, money, money. That's what its about.

Most new Clubs last year could barley get the tryout numbers and enough players to field teams. 3-4 more new Clubs this year?? Should be interesting. There are only so many players out there.

Good for the consumer. Ask about each team that fielded a 2025 team e.g. how were the coaches, what was the amount of practice time, cost etc.

Legacy was excellent this year . 3 great coaches plenty of practices. All tournaments were local . We played a few tournaments where 2 grade teams pulled out and we had to play up but overall it was a great year. Next year coach will be one of the best around if what I am hearing is true .

Ask the 91 parents. Not so sure.

So the coaches change?

Who is out

Who is in?

What SYAG team are you all referring too? SYAG doesn't have a summer program. If it was 2024 maybe Sachem East? I know north was at summer sunset and some of us were at this with legacy.

Nassau needs a good program outside of 91 and Express which I still think is Suffolk based. Practicing at Hofstra and just added a huge name to their staff. Bluefish could turn some heads. I know my town (Northern Nassau) has no club kids at this age. the emails are starting to flow about programs.

Very true. You need to look no further than 91 Orange. Coaches were used to varsity player but could not coach little kids. It's very difficult so finding the right coach should be you top priority.

SYAG 2025 just won Hershey a few weeks back. SSC or Sachem East doesn't field a 2025 summer team to my knowledge.
