Time for some folks to hear from me...you may not know me, but I am the wrong guy to [lacrosse] off by attacking a child. You may think you are anonymous, but let me tell you in no uncertain terms you are not. If I have to turn over your posts to the authorities I will do it without thinking twice..

This is version 3.0. I have all the information from the low-life adult bullies bashing this 14 y/o. Be warned...do not [lacrosse] with me or the child anymore or you will have a knock on your front door from guys with a badge.

To the parent of the child that is being bullied. If you wish to pursue this issue and need my assistance simply email me and I will TCB.

I have zero tolerance for adults who beat up on children and hide behind their momma's dress like the pussies they are. Have I made myself clear or do you want to challenge me?

Meanwhile, version 3.0 of the Boys 2019 Fall 2014/Summer 2015 is open for posting.

I'm Larry Miller.

Nice job Larry, lets put this to rest once and for all. it's just not right. Like politics and religion they are never going to convince anyone. Just leave the kid alone. It also would have been nice if you addressed this a few months ago when it started.

I do admit that I was thrown into taking over this site because of the antics by Cage Sage.

I am open to any of you who have time and interest if you would like to help me moderate this board.

I would also agree with you that this should have been addressed earlier, but I mistakenly thought that 2.0 would have cured the ills. Obviously, I was mistaken.

Thank You! I personally know this young man and his parents. My son played with him last year on Express (2018). He is a great kid. No need to re post this. People are just plain NUTS!
I have a way of separating these people from their nuts....you know I'm just waiting for these adult child abusers to make my day smile

Larry, any idea why the 2019 thread is infected with crack pots and idiots?
Not at all.

I am not involved in lacrosse in any manner other than publishing this site.

I do not, coach, nor run a camp, clinic or tournament. I do not have children playing as my two girls are grown and with their famies.

I do not understand much of the bitching and posturing that goes on, because I am not what the positioning is for? What is the pot of gold you are seeking?ma full ride to college?

Sorry, but I doubt that. I am also of the opinion that neither lacrosse or soccer will offer a pro career where a living can be earned...basketball, football, and at Duke, golf will bring serious moola....my 2 cents.

Here are some common myths about college recruiting. It's a changing process, and the more you know the better chance you have of achieving your goals.

Copied from Ted Spencer's Blue Chip 225:

RECRUITING MYTHS
1. If you are college material coaches will find you.

There are 166,000 high school boys playing lacrosse throughout the country. A coach is looking for five or six players each year to fill in his roster. He has limited time and a limited travel budget. Your chances of being found among the 166,000 are slim at best.

2. You need to wait until official recruiting period begins at the start of your junior year.

Wrong! 31% of lacrosse players commit before the official recruiting period even begins!! In fact, rising sophomores (freshmen) are committing to college programs so preparing for college cannot begin too early. A recent article in the New [lacrosse] Times was headlined "Committed to College and Then Started 9th Grade."

3. By the time you are a rising senior it is too late to get recruited.

69% of commitments are made between the junior and senior years. Many schools will recruit rising seniors to fill in unexpected gaps or among players who are late bloomers or missed in the process. While your chances at a top D1 school go down by the time you're a senior, it is never too late to be recruited. Our own survey of Blue Chip 225 Rising Senior attendees found that over 90% reported at least one college inquiry as a result of attending Blue Chip 225

4. Aim high! That's where the money is.

The talk in any high school locker room is about the top D1 schools kids are going to get into. UNC, Virginia, Hopkins, SU, and so on are every players dream schools. They have big time scholarship money.

The math is easy - there are 41,000 players in each graduating high school class and maybe 400 scholarship equivalents at all the D1 schools (some you've not likely even heard of). The odds of receiving ANY funding from ANY D1 school are 0.89% - less than 1 in a 100) - The average award in lacrosse is about $6,000. In all sports only 3.7% of high school players even make the team. Unless you are among the national elite players , at least include a wide range of D1 and other division schools in your target list. Dream high and plan wide.

4. I know a bunch of people who got full rides for lacrosse.

Football and basketball are head count sports where each scholarship is given to an individual for college. Lacrosse is an "equivalency" sport which means that the 12.9 scholarships for D1 and 10.8 for D2 are turned into dollars and awarded in pieces among athletes. In this way an athlete may receive partial tuition, or books, or any dollar amount so long as the total disbursed does not exceed typical expenses times the number of scholarships allowed for that division. Not all programs are fully funded which means that a given school may allocate only a portion of the maximum funding to the program which further limits the funding to be spread among the players in the four college classes.

5. Grades don't matter if you're a recruited athlete.

Quite the contrary. While being a recruited athlete is likely to get you some favorable treatment at the admissions office, NCAA regulations and the standards of colleges are likely to set minimum standards you must meet to be admitted no matter how strongly you are being recruited. Further, a coach assesses the likelihood of your remaining eligible academically, so the athlete with the stronger academic record is going to get the nod over one with lower grades or standardized test scores.

6. Someone can get me recruited. My coach will get me recruited. I filled out the prospective student questionnaire that's enough. I got emails from coaches indicating interest. I was invited to college camp.

All these statements are good indications of interest by colleges and you should welcome them. BUT! During the course of a year a coach may email hundreds of players, invite many players to camp, respond to a vast number of questionnaires... and that is exciting but all it means is that you are noticed. Until you receive a direct offer from a coach you can drop off the recruiting roster in a moment and the coach is not likely to notify you of this. The simple reality is that is up to you to market yourself to the schools you want to attend. No one, and I mean NO ONE, cares as much as you do about this next step in your life!

How do you secure a Blue Chip invite?

Is this the same Showcase as the Blue Chip 225? That has a registration process with your coach recommendation needed.

Jake Reed is also called Blue Chip.

Please advise all of us who are new to the process.

Several Showcase dates are coming up. How do you know, besides conflicts with your club team playing dates, which ones to attend and which ones to skip????

No Jake Reed Blue Chip direct invites to be had this year for 2019. Only way in is through 3d Blue Chip in Fla two weeks from now. Play in for July camp.

Know what your son is pursuing!
Extremely difficult to make any level college roster. Older son is a Freshman at a decent D3 program (very good school) He started lax in 1st grade. Nearly 60 kids playing. We're in an average lax town. 11 kids made it to senior year. 4 started 3 more played and 4 others never saw the field on 10+ win team last season. A grand total of 3 boys are now playing in college, all D3. When you finally get to school, the college coach who said they don't cut recruits, he cut 4 of them in fall ball. Now you've made the team, your 18 years old and competing for playing time against men 20-22 years old. (time to get over the age thing). Morals of the story: Make sure your son likes the school. Don't go to school to play lax. It's not easy to get on any college roster at any level. Average day: Meeting, practice, lift. Back to your dorm 4 hours later. 6 days a week.(did I mention this is the commitment at D3?) Be prepared to shovel the field for practice. You better love it, cause it's really hard!

Jake Reed and Blue Chip are generally considered the best 2 camps around. Invites for both have gone out. There are many ways to be seen. Certain tournamnets have individual showcases. Narrow down the schools that your son is interested in and see if they have a camp or will be at a particular showcase. it takes some work.

anybody know anything good, bad, or ugly about this showcase process? just another way of parting you from your money or legit tool for college coaches to get an early bead on potential players? specific info related to the 3d blue chip showcase coming up next week if anybody has been there?
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2019 Fall 2014/Summer 2015 v3.0 - 01/23/15 01:24 AM
Same question, what is supposed to come outta this for an 8th grader, beyond wowing the evaluators? Can something be gained if not selected to Jake Reed? Does it " get your kid's name out there" as was alluded for selling point? (Watching SuperBowl in Fla at poolside at a resort was our selling point) or is it a dead end with his vitals and performance in a trash bin come March. Any insight appreciated.

Blue Chip 225 is first come, first served. You only need a coach's recommendation to get an invite. They have 2 levels at each grade Elite (A) and Varsity (B).
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2019 Fall 2014/Summer 2015 v3.0 - 01/24/15 04:41 PM
What works for one person regarding recruiting may not work for another. JR was extremely helpful for my older son. The above is true for club team as well - my older son did not get any support from his club but his high school coach was critical. I am sure that many clubs have supported their players. I have friends that swear by their club coaches. IMO you need to continue try different avenues until you find the the right gatekeeper (person that can get you in front of the coaches of the schools you care about) but ultimately you need to be proactive and positive for your son. We shot for the moon (regarding college commitment) and many thought were we not realistic but it came together and we are happy. We will try and do the same steps for my 2019 but his path might be completely different. Maybe club will be critical and school will not help - we will see how it plays and be as supportive as possible.....

Good post. 18 would be time to get over age thing. College is a whole different ballgame. Its about 10 year old's playing against 13 year old's. My son's fifth grade team played a 7th grade team with two 8th graders last year. The directors refs coaches on other team all played dumb. My son asked one of the kids how old he was and he said he was not allowed to say. That's just ridiculous.

Great to hear the reality of it all.

Anyone know how this Jake Reed thing works? I was told that depending on the player's performance this weekend, invitatoons would then go out for the July Camp at UMass.... I understand that some invitations have already been sent to players. How is this? Just a money scam? How can they invite players that have not yet been enauated? Anyone have any real experience or knowledge? Not looking for sarcasm. Thank you in advance

The big weekends were the one after 1/1 and MLK weekend. My son was there the weekend after 1/1 and the competition was very good. Fighting Clams, Tomahawks, Laxachussetts, 91, Express, Dukes, Mesa Fresh, FCA, Breakers, 3d from everywhere and good kids from all over the south. It was a great weekend.

Regarding JR Camp which is coming up this weekend:

Long Island players are considered Mid-Atlantic according to JR. That is why my son is going this weekend. I did view the website and saw several of the LI players 2018 and above were listed as North East Region players but they play for HS on Long Island.

When we registered, I was told my son could attend any weekend if there was room for him.

I was told that invitations would be extended for the July camp to the 2019 players who had a good tryout this weekend.

Until I hear otherwise, I have to believe that some of the players who try out this weekend will get an invitation.

How would I even know if a player from this weekends group was selected? Unless it was a player I knew personally, I will never know.

The confusion is due to the other Blue chip camp 225. Invitations went out for that this week. Totally separate thing.

Back up to the blue chip 225 camp having 2 levels for 2019. How is it determined which level a player is in If they have not yet been evaluated?

Its a trick to get your kid with weaker players the Mid-Atlantic has the best kids mostly 91 Extreme and Orange kids. Northeast has weaker players.

Almost all of the 3D kids my legit 2019 played with and against were holdbacks - do the recruiting talk that is part of this...the 3D folks openly encourage you to hold back.

When will you find out if your son will get invited to attend the July camp?

Coming from LI, did you feel your son was as good, if not better, than the holdback players?

Are you familiar with any other players who attended during your session and if so, how did they compare on the field?
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2019 Fall 2014/Summer 2015 v3.0 - 01/28/15 07:28 PM
Recognized some of the players, not all. Plenty of players from CT / LI / NY...plus MANY from Ohio, Georgia, PA.
If my son doesnt make it, it isnt because of the holdbacks - many bigger kids, good athletes, but just don't have the lacrosse skills (3D team kids) as many others - that was VERY evident if the evaluators were paying attention.
They said around 3/1 for notifications either way.
Very curious what % of the invites goto 3d program kids versus non 3d kids.
In short, having attended arguably the largest session (1st one), I wasn't blown away by the skills on the field. Anyone from a good club team up here should represent very well.
Best of luck

Very curious what % of the invites goto 3d program kids versus non 3d kids.
In short, having attended arguably the largest session (1st one), I wasn't blown away by the skills on the field. Anyone from a good club team up here should represent very well.
Best of luck


Great assessment.

From what I have been seeing on the fields, our 2019 LI players are athletes who are very skilled with great lax IQ plus they are tough and they all believe in playing their best game all the time. I too, am interested to see the % of invites sent out to the masses vs. 3d affiliated players.

We, as parents, are using this experience as a teaching weekend for our son. He will get a real look at what the rest of the country has to offer as far as competitive lax players who are all interested in playing in college. We hope that he realizes he will need to hit the books harder, all year round to maintain excellent grades. Playing, training and practicing are never an issue.

We can only support him on this journey called lax recruiting. It will be up to him to perform on the field and in the classroom. Once he is committed to this, he will be unstoppable. He has the resources: top tier club, coaches, trainers and a great HS. As parents, we are teaching him that lax is a vehicle to get him into a school which he may not have thought about attending.

Thanks again.

3D and JR both a blatant money grab. Throw in lacrosserecruits.com being the clearing house for JR direct viewing videos for a premium and you've got a 3 pronged attack to separate parents from their dollars for 2 solid years up until Fall Junior year when NCAA mandated cloak of silence is lifted only to find out Big Time Lacrosse U never had any interest in Little Johnny in the first place. Instead of trying to buy his way into JR with all this nonsense, spend that money attending select prospect camps at schools that are academically and athletically in reach. It's all a well orchestrated plan to capitalize on parents' and players' insecurities with LR "shout outs" and "spray and pray" prophecies all designed to profit from the growth of a sport that is and will be non-revenue generating for colleges. Just my .02 from experience.

Well stated. I got your point.

As one of the 2019 parents heading down to 3d tomorrow, I will be watching, listening and learning about all that 3d has to say regarding our sons having an opportunity to play for a college.

I will take into consideration all of the points you made regarding 3d keeping parents on the hook for 2+ years, waiting for some kind of a return on our investment, only to find out that "Oswald" was not even on the radar of a school we thought was interested.

Thanks.

For the 8-10 Long Island 2019 8th graders who are going and MAY be on some D1's school's radar, good luck. For all the rest, this sounds like a giant and very expensive hand job…….

8-10 is generous. Not taking away from our talent , most of our 2019's are actual 2001 and maybe late 2000's. No one really overpowering. Just being realistic.

So what your alluding to is the over powering kids would be the hold back with early 2000 DOB's. Enjoy boys! it is a bumpy ride.

December 2000 is not a holdback.

The LI 2019's who are at 3d are ALL considered to be great players for their positions. They are true athletes who play multiple sports. In addition, they are ALL bright students who happen to be growing up to be fine young men.

Our Strong Island 2019's are all very good players. Every time one of our teams are in a tourney, the opposition gears up to play hard.

That is great for our boys. They have our financial support which gives them inroads to great trainers and coaches. As I see it, LI has not seen the need to jump on the holdback train.

I am sure we will hear all about the competition when they return. Remember, it is 2019, 18, 17 and 2016 there playing this weekend. The 2016's and 17's have a lot at stake. I believe our 2019's will be able to hold their own.

GREAT for them when they do. Knowing they did it without cheating and still having so much time to become great players. They are only in the 8th grade.

There are more than (13) LI 2019 players at 3d. Those are the boys I do know. However, I am familiar with the ones I don't know personally, all good, strong, solid players who are stars on their school and club teams.

We have nothing to worry about. Our 8th grade boys are skilled and well trained. They do not have to be the biggest to be the best.

They will all come away from this weekend more aware of what they need to do to keep on top.

That my friend, is priceless. Every penny spent on this weekend will come back ten fold if they all come back and challenge themselves to be better players and great students.

It is too soon to worry about DI vs. DIII yet. They are wearing braces, discovering girls and still like mom and dad.

I wish all of them well. A healthy rest of the winter and a quick end to the cold so we can go out and watch them all play.

Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2019 Fall 2014/Summer 2015 v3.0 - 02/01/15 04:30 AM
From what was said at the camp, 2019's should not worry about getting looked at by college coaches at this point. They should play, practice, train and keep healthy.

They told us only a few invites will be extended to 2019's. The teams were fairly balanced. Plenty of offensive drills all weekend and plenty of goals attempted. Many made, many saved.

Invitations are said to come out March 1st.

My son is there to witness what he will be up against in the future. He is playing with the best. The game is quick, fast, and the boys are flying up and down the field passing and shooting. Every game is college paced.

The boys are getting a work out and they are mentally exhausted.

All good things. Playing lacrosse on a high level everyday is demanding. He is learning that now and it will remain with him, especially because HE WANTS to be the best, every game. He has found out that it is hard to be the best every game when every player on your team also wants to be the best.

He told me he has work to do when he comes home.

That was the best thing he could have said to me. It made the entire weekend worth it.

Wishing good health and a quick end to winter to all of our 2019's.

Great info. Thank you. I am still unsure of the invite. Is that for a second camp in the summer? Is that for a team? And are they choosing a group or team for every age group or just one team or set of invites inclusive of all the age groups? How many players will be invited back and will there be equal numbers from each age invited back?

Most likely because they have the most kids on the team that should either be 2018's or 2017's... That would be my guess.

Not that the club directors would ever let it happen, but to have the three teams mentioned above along with Crabs, Dukes and Madlax in the same tournament would be great. It would truly showcase how much talent is spread across these clubs at 2019.

My son was on the team that won all 4 games they played and it was some of the best lacrosse I've seen at this age. Coaching was great and all kids had plenty of playing time. What a great experience for all these boys.
Best of luck to those who get picked !

2019 What is your districts policy on bringing up MS players for HS lax. How do you find out what the policy is? What is typically the hardest part of being moved up. What do the rigors of the test truly prove. Especially for a goalie.

Are there any exemption to taking the test.

If the varsity coach needs/wants him to be on the team, he'll make it happen
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2019 Fall 2014/Summer 2015 v3.0 - 02/04/15 05:12 PM
there are 2 tests for a MS player playing up, a physical test for JV play and another for Varsity. The difference being time on run and possibly pullups, not 100% sure. The test for Varsity is only taken if the times/results when the JV test results didn't qualify the athlete for Varsity play. There shouldn't be any expemption. I think bringing an athlete up is at the discretion of the coaches. In lacrosse I think the Speed of the game is the biggest adjustment as well as playing vs. 16+yr old players as a 13/14 year old. you can have a big 8th grader move up, but they aren't nearly filled out as a 16+yr old. physicality and speed hardest part.

My son was asked to play up as a goalie. There was no test that I know of. He had been playing up as long as I could remember so it was almost natural for him those were his lax friends. I wouldn't allow him to go to varsity. Because I thought it would be best to play w his friends and for playing time. The worst part of it all was the diagram they gave us to describe what stage of puberty he was at. They had several pictures of a boys/mans privates and we had to check off what stage he was at. Honestly at that time I hadn't seen his in quite some time so I lied. I really thought it was the strangest piece of paper I ever filled out
I do recall he had a few physical test he needed to take like a mile run so many pull ups push ups if he failed he could keep taking until he passed. They were not very rigorous from what I recall.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2019 Fall 2014/Summer 2015 v3.0 - 02/04/15 05:47 PM
A lot more than just a run and pull ups. Its mile run, shuttle run, arm hang, broad jump and the tanner puberty chart. Our district will not pull a player up from middle school unless they play varsity not just JV.

In NY it is called selection classification. Your school's website should have info on it. If not, contact the AD. In our district the deadline is this week.

The level of competition was great. The speed of the game was fast paced. The pressure was on all the time.

He was able to see exactly what he did throughout the games. He told us he will make adjustments based on what he saw.

In addition, the quality of the video was terrific. Professional camera guys who understand the game of lacrosse were the men who were filming.

Having paid for "professional" lax video before, this one was far more superior.

As far as price, check around, they charged the going rate.

It was worth it for my son.

Saw them play in DC a few weeks ago and Crush was up by a sizable margin . Madlax didn't even make finals it was a 91 final

Madlax lost to Crush by about 10 goals in DC a few weeks ago. Crush went on to beat 2019 91 team in a crazy final.

Was anyone concerned with the 3D administration & staff pushing for reclassification? Telling all us parents that we are putting our kids at a disadvantage? Was very taken back. I know it's done often but I thought it was not looked upon in a good way by professionals.

Buckle in, it only goes down hill from here. Wait till this fall when all the parents make their final decision to hold back for school in September. If your son will be doing any recruiting venues this fall, be prepared for him to be playing against kids 1-2 years older. It's beyond out of control now.

LMAO my son would quit playing lacrosse if I made him repeat the 8th grade. Since he started playing in the 3rd grade the focus has always been on academics which in turn has produced a straight A student. He has also achieved on the field. My advice to my son has always been that he will go to a very good college because of his grades and if he is able to play lacrosse there that would be a nice perk. We live on Long Island where the reclassification game is not as big as it is in other parts of the country. Have a nice day.

Are they Professionals?
Did they go to medical school, engineering, etc? The answer is No, and they're only lax people. There's a bigger life out there than 3D.

Furthermore- if everyone did it- it would cancel out the effect of reclassing. I can guarentee- they do not want EVERYONE doing it. They would lose their edge. I guess if they can get 3D kids to do it- then they look golden as their kids should get recruited first- just because they are older, bigger, more muscular, but that does not make them better. In 2 years it evens out- and with all the earlier recruiting- I think you will see a lot of decommitting from kids looking at better schools or easier schools to get into- which should change the "games" again and hopefully right the wrongs of reclassing and recruiting so early.

4 more goals for the kid today, say what you want but the path he took has him at Duke and dominating as a freshman. I thought this was a new trend on LI, sounds like you are in the same boat as the rest fo the country.

help me understand all the hostility.

I thought if a player did a post grad year it was okay and respectable. Some players need that PG year to get their grades up, they are not using the year to play against weaker younger players (to be seen - they were already seen) they use the PG year to get into the (best academic) school of their choice. (others use the Pg year to decommit from one school to another; again, many times to get into a better school).

I thought we only thought those that were held back in MS/HS were the cheaters.

Posted By: The Hop Re: Boys 2019 Fall 2014/Summer 2015 v3.0 - 02/09/15 04:35 PM
I am also having trouble understanding the large number of posts that seem to be so hostile regarding PG hold backs. For those unfamiliar a PG(post grad) hold back is a student who decides to attend a prep school after HS graduation for a year for many reasons. Think West Point Prep School or Navy Prep School.
As a parent I think it's a great idea and gives these students a year to get their grades and SAT/ACT scores up and mature. Whether it's a military prep school or a private school I can only see the positives.

Mr. Hop I think the hostility stems from the ability or inability for a family to be able to afford the PG year. Justin was a great High School player and I dont have any personal information as to why he did a PG year . I have less of a problem with players doing a PG year after High School than the parents that have their children repeating the 8 TH grade. What if a student decided to see the world or join the military for a year or two then enter college ? Just my opinion.

So the hostility comes from those that can't afford it? If so that's ridiculous.
Is there hostility toward those who have vacation homes and Rolls Royce cars? I know I can't afford those things but I'm not hostile toward those that can.
Also, if a parent decides to hold back their kid in middle school or high school then that's their business. If it helps their kid then more power to them.
To your comment about traveling the world or entering the military and then going to college......What's your point? I think that's a great idea as well.

Hop, a lot of us are comfortable with PG years but very uncomfortable with this at younger ages because the size disparity is potentially so great. If you want to moderate us away from posting about that, let us know. But the concern is legitimate and I would hope you can acknowledge that.

I was clearly addressing the posters reasons for hostile responses to PG students.
Further more I don't see the issue with hold backs. I welcome the discussion. That's what we are here for after all.

I don't have any issue with a kid doing a PG year. If it can help you prepare for college, what's wrong with that? I'm here to tell you its not easy to balance college and lax. Might not be that hard for the most gifted academic kids, but not for most. If a PG year gives your son that boost academically, I think it's great. After all, isn't all of this about pursuing the best education? However if the Duke kid is 20, sounds like he was most likely a holdback and a PG. Legit college freshman are 18. Some still 17 in fall semester.

The young man wanted a great education. Therefore he elected to do a year at a prep school. Look at the Duke roster, many kids took a prep year. A Duke education is worth an awful lot, how much is Professional Lax paying these days?? Lacrosse is a means to an end EDUCATION wise, not a sport you are going to get rich playing.

Was not a hold back just a PG. Had a birthdate last week. Some players who committed early have some bumps along the way not saying he did or didn't. Sometime a PG is the only way to get/stay where you want to go.

Funny how Jan/Feb was old for a grade year in my time. Now Oct/Nov is old.

It would be interesting to see the pay scale of players 4-6 years out of the sport. 2011 and prior.

Will they be any significantly higher than the median scale for any college graduate

Kids that are born in the earlier part of the year will be 19 in their freshman lax year at college. Doing one pg year is not that big of a deal. If he had repeated 8th grade, than chose a pg year- and was 21 at time of freshman year- that is something to talk about. I suspect, you will see some of the 8th grade holdbacks being asked to pg in the future as well. Will be interesting to see if they want to give up ANOTHER year of their life at that point. It will certainly be a much longer road for these kids to get to college. I suspect- some will be burnt out from an extra two years of schooling before they even start their freshman classes.

Thats fine then let US Lacrosse adopt the same system that USA Hockey uses which is birth year base. That way Little Johnny has to play against boys his own age / year of birth them mom and dad can have him repeat all the grades he wants to .

If by barely you mean losing by 5 in the finals of young guns, than yes Madlax barely lost to Dukes. FWIW, the Madlax goalie wouldn't have made Dukes and the goalies for Laxachusetts, Team 91 and the Express were more impressive than that kid. The amount of total BS uttered by insecure parents is staggering.

Not the original poster, but at the 3D camp in Fl, they came right out and said it to players and parents. Plus it's in their 3D Camp book, when is the best time to reclass as opposed to when it might be too late. They fully support reclassing.

Agreed. Is your son mentally challenged? Hold him back. Is he unable to standout on the field of play? Too bad. That's called natural selection. Learn to work harder, not cheat.

Or they are self made men who know challenging a boy will help forge a man of character. When these kids are faced with adversity in the future, how will they react. "Daddy, help me!!"

My son welcomes the challenge of playing against little babies who had to be held back to compete. I will not discourage him from letting them know what losers they are.

I too was there, what they said was if (yes if) a coach said to a player I have no spot for you as a 2017 (I'm picking a year) but I would if you were a 2018, it s then up to the player and parent to determine what s best.
On their website they address reclassifying (it's a reality lets face it) and what they state is when it would be best for players to do so.
They do not support it and are not against it, they are stating the facts.
Fact is, it's not illegal, it's not cheating, it is a reality, which many might not like, but it still happens.
Cheaters are those that put players who are not of a graduating class on a team and tell the parents when registering for tournaments to lie. See it all the time, it's an ugly reality of travel lacrosse and marketing. They want to win so they can sell you on their organization.
The number of reclassified players is not large enough to have the amount of conversation surrounding it.
What's next attacking parents who have the funds for private training or sport specific athletic training.
Our children need to learn that the world may not always be fair, and there is nothing they can do about it other then being hard working.
And, No, I am not a parent of a reclassified player, just someone who s realistic.

Uncalled for- both 91 teams are great.

How is it uncalled for? 2020 beat 2019 a few weeks ago.


If 2019 plays 2020 20 times 2019 wins 19 times so big mouth call our coach and set it up. We will play USBOXLA rules and you won't have a man up advantage for 6 minutes. We will bring a short bench and a guarantee we beat you on the scoreboard as well as mentally and physically. Remember when you respond that the score was 8-2 when the Refs felt bad for you guys and gave you a man up advantage.

Am I right to understand the 91 box teams aren't really the same as their outside teams?

not sure where this venom is coming from, just thought the inside and outside teams were a bit different and the outdoor teams were quite friendly to each other

The teams are mostly the same, just not the whole roster and guest players for a tournament here and there. As for the teams being friendly, they are- kids have no issues and get along fine, the parents with big egos are the ones with the issues. Everyone needs to check their egos and tempers- it's a game, just a game one one single day. Many more games, tournaments and camps in the future.

So yes it's more than completely fine.


That can't be. Only Philly and Baltimore use overaged players. The Long Island teams would never stoop to such levels.

LOL, that thread has turned into a girls bitching site.

You do have to admit the 2020 2019 $ 2018 91 boys teams are some of the best teams. Wonder what would happen if they ever blended the teams to play for fun.

Anyone believe in the Old Farmers Almanac?

It says stormy rain for the atlantic coast Mar 22-23. Just in time for the Shamrock Shootout.

The almanac has been very accurate this winter so far. Which is worse - Mud and rain or freezing snow?

Both dangerous for our boys.

They need to stay healthy for the summer.

Do you think they would postpone the event???????

My sons also went and both were not advanced. I am curious to know, of the LI players who were down there, how many were invited on to attend Jake Reed. My sons spoke with friends who were down there at the same time and they were NOT advanced either.






There was so much talent there from LI.

Really????

You are telling me that 50+ 2019 players from LI, not affiliated with 3d, had absolutely no shot of advancing?

What about the 2018,17,16 players from LI??? They were not 3d.

While I see your point, 3d does not have a LI/NYC/Westchester presence. NO ONE from LI advanced????

What about the new Great State Showdown? It is invite only. Who gets invited? It is a first time event. If there is no 3d team in NY Downstate, who goes????

The whole 2019 group was incredible and was fun to watch. I know of only 2 kids from Long island who made it so far. Both are great players and stand out from the rest of the crowd.

For 2019 parents of players.
Outside of your travel/club program, what events are you sending your son to this summer.
Trying to start a discussion of what is out there and opinions based on experience.
Coaches from college programs want to see your child in clinic/skills/game evaluation sessions. How do you think this is best accomplished?

120 players were picked from ALL SESSIONS COMBINED. Meaning there was no limit on how many could be picked from each weekend session.

Let me clarify for MR ALL CAPS above. Ther was no quota for each weekend. It was stated very clearly that the best overall were being invited back. Nothi g to keep even numbers for each region. So forget the "30" number. Means nothing.

What coaches from Long Island were evaluating the 2019's. As a 2018 parent that participated last year the coaches involved during the selection process had a lot to do with who was picked.

Thats not what I'm telling you - there were a whole bunch of people there, whose kids do NOT play for 3D, who wondered if the selection process was going to be biased / 3d weighted.
Most of the tri-state kids I saw saw at my son's tryout were much better than the 3d kids I saw. Early returns seem to be that the 3D evaluators, for whatever reason (wink), didnt see it that way.

My 2017 son made it as well his rising freshman year. Not by any means the be all and end all, has been very diluted since 3D got involved. Still a decent event, but Maverik and Black Card in the summer,plus Under Armour underclass tryouts which coaches flock to, and Philly Showcase in the Fall, are more important in my opinion. And to be honest, if your kid is good and plays on a top club team, he will be seen even without theese individual showcases. If this is the case, do the team tournaments and a few prospect days may be time better spent.

Best accomplished by worring about it next year. So many new and different options out there. I do know of a dad who has put some lists together. Ask around I am sure he will share but not on here.

Only 6 3D guys were evaluating the kids. Coaches just coached the individual teams.

Looking back at earlier posts, direct invites go out without the expense of a FL weekend.
Additionally, no matter how many players were from LI, the 30 spots for 2019 midatlanic region could be filled with whom ever they liked best-it could be only 8 from MidAtlantic and all of them D-men, etc.

My son had fun and learned a great deal.

not sure what you are looking for, lots of discussion on the 2018 thread from people that were their last year. I have been to it a few times, it is a great event that lets kids from other towns and travel teams play together for a week representing long Island, it is the most fun the kid will have over the summer playing lacrosse. having said that, it is not a recruiting event - they have some great colleges represented but they are coaches not guys in folding chairs with clip boards - playing for a coach fro a school you are interested in could be a great opportunity but that is luck of the draw - last year the middle school team was coached by a Maryland assistant who is now at Loyola so it is great if you play well and are interested in the school.

NOOOOO IT IS ONLY THE CANADIANS. Americans would NEVER hold back, PG, reclass. Only those evil hosers up north. Maybe the US Lacrosse Director on this board will open up an investigation.

Yes, some kids parents decide to reclass and PG their kids but that is not what the Edge program is doing. The program has decided to play entire teams down a year. THAT is cheating. They are 9th graders playing against 8th graders and you have the gall to post a message of your indignation about an LI coach who wants to play physical against them? You sir are what is wrong with youth sports.

And you people wonder why we think of Canada as the leaching, whiney, step child to the north. Don't you think its a sign that Canadians have to play younger kids to standout against American kids? You're not known for your intelligence up north but try fair play.

Arm breaker. Classless trash from the north.

2019 Orange is going to have a run for their money this summer. It is going to be great to see the boys play/scrimmage each other when the thaw begins and the ground is visible again.

It's not about the team .it's about getting each kid to play better on an individual basis.if your son hardly plays for any of these teams they should go to an organization where your son will play.. hard to get better just watching. Team records mean absolutely nothing.

Wow the vast majority will be 15 - Then that is not a true rising freshman. a True rising freshman is not 15 before their first day of freshman year.

Maybe we should now utilize the college term Red shirt to denote these players and events.

As far as I know the vast majority of 2019 will only be 14 (some may even be 13) by the time they enter HS as a freshman.

or better yet, if your son is 15 at JR this year as a 2019 - at some point you were not good enough for 2018. Wanted to play in college so you were able to game the system. Don't tell me you left the kid back (for academic reasons) in 2nd grade either; their are only a handful of those legit kids, the rest had the thought process to give the kid an advantage over other students.

yeah but, his parents left him behind one year in kindergarten to get an edge, then reclassified in 8th grade. Wait until PG year after high school.

Not an Orange fan but this is a holdback year for many. This is the year that LI clubs begin to be at a disadvantage. Teams that LI clubs beat handily in the past will suddenly be extremely competitive. The majority of LI players are public school kids of middle class parents, reclassifying is the exception not the norm. It's just the way it is.

Can we all agree reclassifying is an unfortunate fact, but the vast majority of players are age appropriate? Some clubs register their teams down an age group in tournaments for an advantage and there is nothing we as parents/coaches can do about (its up to the tournament directors to police). Finally, there are a lot of pretty darn talented teams in the North East US and we really don't need to bicker over which is best. Everyone needs to take a step back from the debating and simply enjoy watching the game played at such a high level.

VERY WELL PUT!

Our 2019's from Strong Island are all very good players and from the ones I know and have met, are very nice, well mannered young men. That combined with the fact that they have club teams, coaches, trainers at their disposal wanting each of the boys to get better makes for a great combination. Plus we have our parents, always willing to make it happen, paying for all of the additional expenses. Most importantly, the boys have a desire to be the best and the outstanding players are developing a Lax IQ, which is what makes a difference. All of these things combined is what elevates our 2019's to be the best players.

Look at the bright side......

Our 2019's here on LI will have great field conditions come April 1st.

Combined with the fact that now they are only getting to practice indoors and are playing in tournys outside of NY-----
they will be ready to "bring it" for their school teams.

Here are some common myths about college recruiting. It's a changing process, and the more you know the better chance you have of achieving your goals.

Copied from Ted Spencer's Blue Chip 225:

RECRUITING MYTHS
1. If you are college material coaches will find you.

There are 166,000 high school boys playing lacrosse throughout the country. A coach is looking for five or six players each year to fill in his roster. He has limited time and a limited travel budget. Your chances of being found among the 166,000 are slim at best.

2. You need to wait until official recruiting period begins at the start of your junior year.

Wrong! 31% of lacrosse players commit before the official recruiting period even begins!! In fact, rising sophomores (freshmen) are committing to college programs so preparing for college cannot begin too early. A recent article in the New [lacrosse] Times was headlined "Committed to College and Then Started 9th Grade."

3. By the time you are a rising senior it is too late to get recruited.

69% of commitments are made between the junior and senior years. Many schools will recruit rising seniors to fill in unexpected gaps or among players who are late bloomers or missed in the process. While your chances at a top D1 school go down by the time you're a senior, it is never too late to be recruited. Our own survey of Blue Chip 225 Rising Senior attendees found that over 90% reported at least one college inquiry as a result of attending Blue Chip 225

4. Aim high! That's where the money is.

The talk in any high school locker room is about the top D1 schools kids are going to get into. UNC, Virginia, Hopkins, SU, and so on are every players dream schools. They have big time scholarship money.

The math is easy - there are 41,000 players in each graduating high school class and maybe 400 scholarship equivalents at all the D1 schools (some you've not likely even heard of). The odds of receiving ANY funding from ANY D1 school are 0.89% - less than 1 in a 100) - The average award in lacrosse is about $6,000. In all sports only 3.7% of high school players even make the team. Unless you are among the national elite players , at least include a wide range of D1 and other division schools in your target list. Dream high and plan wide.

4. I know a bunch of people who got full rides for lacrosse.

Football and basketball are head count sports where each scholarship is given to an individual for college. Lacrosse is an "equivalency" sport which means that the 12.9 scholarships for D1 and 10.8 for D2 are turned into dollars and awarded in pieces among athletes. In this way an athlete may receive partial tuition, or books, or any dollar amount so long as the total disbursed does not exceed typical expenses times the number of scholarships allowed for that division. Not all programs are fully funded which means that a given school may allocate only a portion of the maximum funding to the program which further limits the funding to be spread among the players in the four college classes.

5. Grades don't matter if you're a recruited athlete.

Quite the contrary. While being a recruited athlete is likely to get you some favorable treatment at the admissions office, NCAA regulations and the standards of colleges are likely to set minimum standards you must meet to be admitted no matter how strongly you are being recruited. Further, a coach assesses the likelihood of your remaining eligible academically, so the athlete with the stronger academic record is going to get the nod over one with lower grades or standardized test scores.

6. Someone can get me recruited. My coach will get me recruited. I filled out the prospective student questionnaire that's enough. I got emails from coaches indicating interest. I was invited to college camp.

All these statements are good indications of interest by colleges and you should welcome them. BUT! During the course of a year a coach may email hundreds of players, invite many players to camp, respond to a vast number of questionnaires... and that is exciting but all it means is that you are noticed. Until you receive a direct offer from a coach you can drop off the recruiting roster in a moment and the coach is not likely to notify you of this. The simple reality is that is up to you to market yourself to the schools you want to attend. No one, and I mean NO ONE, cares as much as you do about this next step in your life!

4. I know a bunch of people who got full rides for lacrosse.

Football and basketball are head count sports where each scholarship is given to an individual for college. Lacrosse is an "equivalency" sport which means that the 12.9 scholarships for D1 and 10.8 for D2 are turned into dollars and awarded in pieces among athletes. In this way an athlete may receive partial tuition, or books, or any dollar amount so long as the total disbursed does not exceed typical expenses times the number of scholarships allowed for that division. Not all programs are fully funded which means that a given school may allocate only a portion of the maximum funding to the program which further limits the funding to be spread among the players in the four college classes.

5. Grades don't matter if you're a recruited athlete.

Quite the contrary. While being a recruited athlete is likely to get you some favorable treatment at the admissions office, NCAA regulations and the standards of colleges are likely to set minimum standards you must meet to be admitted no matter how strongly you are being recruited. Further, a coach assesses the likelihood of your remaining eligible academically, so the athlete with the stronger academic record is going to get the nod over one with lower grades or standardized test scores.

6. Someone can get me recruited. My coach will get me recruited. I filled out the prospective student questionnaire that's enough. I got emails from coaches indicating interest. I was invited to college camp.

All these statements are good indications of interest by colleges and you should welcome them. BUT! During the course of a year a coach may email hundreds of players, invite many players to camp, respond to a vast number of questionnaires... and that is exciting but all it means is that you are noticed. Until you receive a direct offer from a coach you can drop off the recruiting roster in a moment and the coach is not likely to notify you of this. The simple reality is that is up to you to market yourself to the schools you want to attend. No one, and I mean NO ONE, cares as much as you do about this next step in your life!

These 6 facts should be a wake up call for all of us who are chasing the false promise of athletic scholarship for lacrosse!

RECRUITING MYTHS
1. If you are college material coaches will find you.

There are 166,000 high school boys playing lacrosse throughout the country. A coach is looking for five or six players each year to fill in his roster. He has limited time and a limited travel budget. Your chances of being found among the 166,000 are slim at best.

2. You need to wait until official recruiting period begins at the start of your junior year.

Wrong! 31% of lacrosse players commit before the official recruiting period even begins!! In fact, rising sophomores (freshmen) are committing to college programs so preparing for college cannot begin too early. A recent article in the New [lacrosse] Times was headlined "Committed to College and Then Started 9th Grade."

3. By the time you are a rising senior it is too late to get recruited.

69% of commitments are made between the junior and senior years. Many schools will recruit rising seniors to fill in unexpected gaps or among players who are late bloomers or missed in the process. While your chances at a top D1 school go down by the time you're a senior, it is never too late to be recruited. Our own survey of Blue Chip 225 Rising Senior attendees found that over 90% reported at least one college inquiry as a result of attending Blue Chip 225

4. Aim high! That's where the money is.

The talk in any high school locker room is about the top D1 schools kids are going to get into. UNC, Virginia, Hopkins, SU, and so on are every players dream schools. They have big time scholarship money.

The math is easy - there are 41,000 players in each graduating high school class and maybe 400 scholarship equivalents at all the D1 schools (some you've not likely even heard of). The odds of receiving ANY funding from ANY D1 school are 0.89% - less than 1 in a 100) - The average award in lacrosse is about $6,000. In all sports only 3.7% of high school players even make the team. Unless you are among the national elite players , at least include a wide range of D1 and other division schools in your target list. Dream high and plan wide.

4. I know a bunch of people who got full rides for lacrosse.

Exactly!
A roster of 50 competing for what amounts to be 12.9 equivalent scholarships?

Where did you get this information?

Whom did you speak with?

This sport does not turn up new blood at random. Players definitely get bigger, stronger, faster over the winter but that is why there is the June determination of who makes the team.

Who at Brine is your source????

My son made the team in December. When I saw that there was another tryout I called the number on the website and was told that because they moved the date in December because of the weather they were having this tryout for boys that were unable to make the new date . I was told that if you got cut you cant tryout again. It doesnt make sense because how do they know that a boy who was there last night was better than a boy they cut months ago.

From the original list About
12 attack
27 middies
20 Poles
8 goalies
couple fogos

If you look at the original group it could have been be 3 good groups of 17. Grabbing 15 more kids may dilute or strengthen the pool but could give kids better runs and better evaluations. Figure 20 per team.

per team would break out nice
3/4 attack (Some good lefty's in there to spread around)
9 middies is a lot but coaches dream rotating in 3 good lines
5 poles (4 for a man down and a LSM)
Goalies 2 per team (One per half)
1 fogo (each fogo gets assigned to 2 teams if they go 4 teams)

Imagine if the group put together could get together for a few more days of friendlies. I am quite sure that would be one heck of a showcase. Have coaches from Express 91 Legacy paired up with coaches and players from Hofstra Duke Stony Brook coach 'em up

That would be worth spending some $$ on.

Good luck to all involved.

I am not certain but I see a few names, on the registered list, who did not get invited the first time around. I think the Pride of LI list of names may have been taken down.

There was a separate list or two with the players who were selected to move forward to play in the Pride of LI. I would think that list will be updated and posted as soon as the players were selected.

I saw at least part of each game. The FCA v 91 game was first and the kids were all rusty and out of sync. Several of the goals for both teams were on broken plays and it was not a pretty game to watch. The Crabs v 91 game was much the same and Crabs had to play 3d NE and then 91 back-to-back. 3d NE was winning both of their games at half (Crabs and FCA) and lost to Crabs by one and FCA by 2/3. These were no more than glorified scrimmages and I would not base how the season will go on these results.

Completely disagree. It's easy to use the word "rusty" since this is early in the year. Most goals came from set offenses with some spectacular shooting - by all teams. The "broken plays" were caused by strong defense and riding - by all teams. All goalies looked impressive as well.

If that 3D attackman is "rusty", I'd hate to see him when he kicks off the rust.

Let's give credit where it belongs. That was some pretty impressive early-season lacrosse by 4 very solid teams.

The players and the parents of the players singled out care...that's who. Would you care if your address and town was published on BOTC? Let me know...it can be arranged.

Just a comment to consider: Is it wrong to Single out a 2019 player for being great? It will be done this summer by name by all the recruiting commentators whether we like it or not. I'm talking only positive, never negative.

Yes it's wrong because unfortunately many posters on BOTC can only make negative comments about players. We have had players singled out for being outstanding only to have the floodgates of negativity open and disrespectful comments about that player posted. Players will not be singled out. Period.

This guy wanted those 2019 players named because he was gonna name his own kid thinking it was someone else saying it. Right wait for after summer when the so called experts start naming the kids.

I won't throw out some generalization saying they're the best team in the country, but Madlax 2019 can play. Very solid all-around squad. But DC/NOVA area they draw from incredibly weak outside of them. Think they have one or two reclassed kids. Played LI Express (I believe it was the Barracudas..? but I am not sure) controlled entire game and won by a decent 4-5 goal margin. I believe they are 2-1 vs. the Crabs this year, lost to the Dukes by 2 in summer Young Guns finals. Basically, I was wondering who people generally believe to be the top 2019 teams regardless of reclass (I don't care if they have thirty 16 year olds), solely based on talent?

Crabs 2-0 v NPYLL Madlax last year (reg season and NPYLL Championship). Crabs lost to Madlax Natl in the Summer. Are you talking about NPYLL Madlax or National Madlax?

Wrong. Madlax went 2-1 against crabs last year. Beat them in Npyll Fallfest, lost to crabs in Npyll final and beat them in Crabs tourney. The teams didn't play in regular season npyll.

Was the team that played in the NYPLL final and the team that played in the Crabs tournament comprised of the same players? Was the team that beat the Crabs in the NPYLL Fallfest the same team that lost to FCA at Greene Turtle? The point is that the Madlax teams are good, but comparing the NPYLL and National Madlax teams is not apples to apples.

Madlax is very good but they lost to Dukes at youngunz by 4 or 5 not by 2. It was 5-1 at halftime and Dukes scored the first two or three goals of the second half. Their run came when the game was all but over and the kids weren't playing as hard. That's not to take anything away from their squad, who I feel is a top 5 2019 team, but our goalie stood on his head in the first half not allowing madlax to gain any momentum.

This is correct. Dukes goalie was amazing that day.

Why do Madlax scores always get inflated, have read a ton of posts where they win games by 5-10 goals and it turns out to be 1-2 goals, lose by 2, turns out to be 4-5. Hey you ungrateful scorekeepers, get the scores right before you come on and brag about the 6 time defending National Champions.

FCA and Madlax are solid squads but the cannons suck. 91, HHH and laxachusset destroyed them at UNC at the end of February. Against HHH I think they had a total of four shots on cage. It was painful to watch.

If Crush is playing U13 they are cheating. Players on that team (a few) have already turned 13. Is this a 13 and under bracket or a true U13?

Just from that statement alone you obviously have no idea what your talking about nor do you understand the age classification system ...instead of accusing crush of cheating why don't you use this platform to ask for an explanation on how the classification system works....your ignorance and bias is obvious.

people seem to forget Crush is a 2020/u13 team due to the fact they usually play up and constantly challenge themselves. US lacrosse age classification 2014/15 for U13 is that "a player may prticipate in the age classification of u 13 if the player turns 13 years of age on or after September 1, 2001," Period, that's it, those are the rules.

How many in addition to the try-out last december did they select with the "extra" try-out. How many additional spots were really available? Didn't seem like too many more were added from the original list. Seems like a giant cash grab and an even bigger SCAM ? ? ? No?

Guess this is just another example of how low youth lacrosse has sunk to.

Who else received Mr. Wolf's breakdowns. Love it. Thank you and good luck to your cub the rest of the season.


I don't get it. Is that movie reference?


Ill go with the 6 missing, but those few are notable names of talented players. My son was hoping to play with and against 2 of them. I hope it was just clerical and they still come down and run with the boys Friday.

I heard the boys who are not on the list anymore were either already accepted to the final roster or have committed to the other showcase.

I don't understand how they can have kids who were already promised positions on the roster when the tryouts are still going

There are still names on the list who are committed to Jake Reed I see 3 of them myself. No final list was made yet.

The only thing I can say is that I spoke with 2 parents of 2019 kids and they were both told by the director that their sons already made the team after the first tryout. they were told they didn't have to go to the tryouts.

Not sure if they are full of it, but I guess we will know the truth once the final list comes out.

Are the players you're speaking about 2 of the best kids out there. I am sure you can go back and look at the same comments the past 3 years. The past few years they have seemed to pick the best representation for the island.

They may miss a diamond in the rough. or may give the 45th kid the 40th spot but I am sure it isn't that far off.



Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2019 Fall 2014/Summer 2015 v3.0 - 04/29/15 03:32 PM
they are both solid players, but not the best in their position by any means. I only know of 2 or 3 kids who would deserve to get an automatic invite and they aren't 2 of them

We will just have to wait and see how the tryouts go and who they select. I am sure once the list is announced you will start to hear more bitching and complaining
This type of stuff has been going on for a loooong time. Last year at the 2018 Pride of Long Island there were 77 kids and 3 teams at the tryout. These were the players that were selected from the 150 or more that tried out at the first Brine tryout. At the Pride of Long Island after an hour or so the players broken down to the final two teams. This was approximately 50 players. Which meant that about 27 kids were sent home before the final selections were made. It was determined that there was so much talent on those two final teams that Long Island would have 2 teams. (Team Long Island and Team New [lacrosse]). You would think that players who were on the final two teams would have been the obvious choice to make up the Team New [lacrosse]. Not the case. Players who were sent home before the final two teams miraculously made Team New [lacrosse]. Many people were left scratching their heads. Go figure that one out.

Not sarcasm, sincere thanks for this nugget of information. Seems this year is close to the same numbers as last year.

Do you know how many of the players from last years team are impact players for their schools this year? Where there any who made an impact for their schools last year? Were the players selected of relative caliber of some of those that didn't make it? I would assume with limited roster spots there were some turned away just as good as some picked.

Does anyone know about how the process was for the 2017 year. In looking and hearing Mike Quick (MSGV) plenty of Sophomores are impact players on top teams.

I think you raise some interesting questions. The teams from Long Island were Team Long Island and Team New [lacrosse]. Team Long Island (A) being the better of the two. This team went on to win the event in the 2018 age group. The New [lacrosse] team (B) still being made up of predominantly all Long island players was competitive but not as good as the A team. The injustice here is that after the A team was made wouldn't you think that the B team should have been made up of the players that were left over from the final team selection of 50 players. All players at this level and who made it to Pride of Long Island were very good. A tryout is a tryout and kids should be selected on how they show not based on who you play for and connections.

Many of these players are good and depending on their school will dictate impact.

example 1: a player who is very good can be in a weaker lacrosse program and make varsity. They may have a major impact for their team. I know a few but will not mention their names.

example 2: same player in a strong high school program and he will not have an impact because he is playing JV due to upperclassmen strength.

example 3: many of these stud players who have gone the catholic or Private School route and based on tradition play Freshman Team, JV, then Varsity. There are exceptions to the rule in these schools but overall they follow a certain pattern of playing based on year.

Thanks,

The schools that don't pull up have strong JV teams and the boys could be impact player there. As far as Catholics are they impact players on Freshman.

Not looking for names, a statement of all/most/some boys are or will be impact players were they landed would suffice.

Most of all 2018 I know in Catholics are playing freshman ball. I am pretty sure about Chaminade and only 2 players were moved to JV from the freshman team at St. Anthony. Some of the smaller or less deep catholic schools like St. Dom and Holy Cross probably have freshman playing varsity due to class size and numbers of players playing lacrosse at said schools.

JV is a mixed bag of nuts at public. Personally feel even an impact player can get lost in a poorly coached JV program. Some kids can regress due to being coached by the football coach who has no idea about lacrosse and plays his football players over seasoned and skilled players. Please understand this is an example from which I am very familiar with. There are also programs with strong JV coaching that help feed Varsity and you can tell which programs those are based on year and year out performance. There are also down years for programs. It happens. Things are always changing as are programs. Some years just have better players than others and no matter how good the coaching is you cant get blood from a stone.

I hope this info helps.

In 2017 they took 2 teams as well.
LI north and LI south
Many kids already committed... Very strong year.

Think they'll go for LI teams again.

Below the list today shows a link to over 800 players playing in the NCAA who went through Brine. That is a great little Did you Know. thanks

why are there 2 more additional names added to the list since the last posting?

now there's 82 players not 80.
started out at 67 then added names after second tryout.
You will find that players will miraculously be at Pride who weren't even at the first tryout. Then after the Pride games players that weren't part of the final game(two teams made from the three) will make a team if they go with 2.

Always conflicts somewhere you can't expect everyone to show up every time what about injury , sickness or something else.
Exceptions are always make and it should be that way they are only human not machines.

too bad if your injured or sick. Try out next year, or not at all. There are plenty of other money grabs out there. NOBODY who did not attend the original tryout should just show up now. REDICULOUS!

Bottom line, If they are better than the boys there today then chances are they would have been better last time too.

not sure the issue. Good luck to all today.

So why have a tryout. Sorry you were out of town, hurt, sick, whatever it maybe. You didn't go to first tryout you should not be at second. Great lessons you are teaching the kids. Listen you don't have to go to first tryout but you will get to the second because I know someone. What if the so called better kid had a bad tryout on that day. Any given day anyone can shine especially in the competitive lacrosse field. Remember these are supposed to be the better kids trying out for this event.

First tryout was well publicized and held in December. 60+ kids were invited back from a pool of about 140-160.

Second tryout(who knows why they had it?) was in March and was not well publicized. About a dozen kids invited back from pool of 80-90.

Then, recently several last minute additions.

Is it the coaches calling an making recommendations or is it parents whining?

I wonder if kids that did not get the original call back in December got to go to another tryout.

Feels murky.

Are there any decent lacrosse summer camps people would recommend, local(meaning long island) or away ? Please list what you think would be top five for each. Thank you

So why have a tryout. Sorry you were out of town, hurt, sick, whatever it maybe. You didn't go to first tryout you should not be at second. Great lessons you are teaching the kids. Listen you don't have to go to first tryout but you will get to the second because I know someone. What if the so called better kid had a bad tryout on that day. Any given day anyone can shine especially in the competitive lacrosse field. Remember these are supposed to be the better kids trying out for this event.


First tryout was well publicized and held in December. 60+ kids were invited back from a pool of about 140-160.

Second tryout(who knows why they had it?) was in March and was not well publicized. About a dozen kids invited back from pool of 80-90.

Then, recently several last minute additions.

Is it the coaches calling an making recommendations or is it parents whining?

I wonder if kids that did not get the original call back in December got to go to another tryout.

Feels murky.



Very Murky


If they are trying to field 2 teams like they have done for the past 2 years, you want to have a larger selection of players to choose from, whether they were in the initial tryout or not. Having a solid first team and a competitive second team makes it more enjoyable for the players.

This nonsense of favoritism has been going on for years, move on, make sure the best play at these events, i've seen where the best did not show up and it isn't pretty.

Is it too much to ask for fair play in youth lacrosse?
Oh, wait, I'm ok now. I just woke up- had a nice dream.

I agree with let the best play. Some of the player talent differential is negligible. At least show up to tryout or even let the coaches make the choices from those they picked. Last year daddys made phone calls after Johnny was sent home after the Pride teams were reduced to the two teams and from those two teams the selection were made. A number of players who were eliminated miraculously made the 2nd team to go to Brine after it was determined the talent of the two teams playing was good enough to field two Long Island based teams.

Brine did a nice job last night. They made the kids feel good about being there.

The depth of the talent was remarkable. These kids really can play. The speed and pace of the game at this level was very impressive. Every one of them deserved to be there.

In all, he was glad to be there.

If you were an evaluator at the Brine tryout Friday night you should be embarrassed or at least be able to explain yourself. How do you look at numbers and evaluate kids based on their play and some kids weren't even there. If the number isn't on the field how do you pick them?. There was a speech before the tryout where the kids are told your numbers and play will dictate if you are on the team. Please explain. If its a scam then please say it is and I will respect you more. I guess there were maybe 20 people picked and not 23 then. Is it fair to all the other kids or at least say that some kids are on the team already based on rep and they were so good at the first tryout that no one out there can compete with them. I would respect that more. No sour grapes but if my facts are wrong please correct me and i will apologize.

Seriously, you need therapy. How do you know kids were selected that weren't there. I know a few who made it and rightly deserved it and were the best on the field. I don't know all the boys selected is it posted. I usually wait for an email from my friend, if the player is a top player than relax if your son is better than you have an issue.

First off the list of names and numbers were out prior to the game. It was a great speech and geared to get the boys up to play. They did a great job at it. If you really think they didn't have a list your naïve, some dads had it.

As of the latest picks, the list is out on the net. I see what you see but don't have an issue neither should you, player is tops of the grade. I do not see 3 boys one pole 91, one middie smithtown and one attack 91 who I thought would have made it easily. I am not sure if they declined due to JR, make no mistake those three will be 2019 impact players for years to come regardless if they made Brine. if you are not one of those parents, which I don't think your are you should have no beef. All good players selected.

If the player did not earn it on the field of play that night, against all that talent, how is it fair that the player gets a spot?

There was enough talent there to create 3 nationally competitive teams. So, as difficult as it might have been to get to 23, it should not have been difficult to recognize that the boys that did compete, worked hard, and spent the money and time, deserved the most fair treatment possible.

Gotta love the "no show" spots.

Disappointed to hear about the no shows.

So it's true that 3 kids made the team without showing up. . I dont blame the kids for the free pass. the blame is on the directors of Brine for not being truthful about the whole process .The parents are a whole issue
In itself that can be addressed in another thread sone day.. let's call it what it is . Politics at it's best... So reputation is what we base this on . I thought it was competition.What a shame and more importantly what a joke this turned out to be

Wherever did the evaluation should speak up and let Brine know that they didn't pick kids to be on this team that they didn't evaluate.You would hope they want to protect their own reputation then have their name associated with this.Who is pulling the strings on this team.It's turning into AAU basketball where the directors tell the college coaches who to recruit and you need to go thru me if you want a kid to play for you.

I think anyone involved can have a beef. Most people involved know those three players and know they should have been selected. I heard the Middie from St James has been injured so was surprised to see him there. If they did decline because of JR that is commendable as not to take a slot from someone else. Good luck to all that made the team based on their efforts. Some very good players are on the roster.

It's all about the tryout nothing should be based on reputation or past history. Not saying they would or would not have made it but other kids do get better and kids do get passed by. Some kids bloom late and some are just started. The judge and jury should be legitimate evaluators and nothing and I mean nothing based in history. The real world is what have you done for me lately . Not a month ago or a year ago .That's thats why your suppose to have tryouts every year and be fair about it.

Haven't we all been over and through this before. This should not be new to any of us for goodness sake. Personally I noticed one boy missing and hoped they would give him "The Pass" because he is deserving; and they did.

I feel this is just the first list and others will be selected because many are on the short JR list. The team as selected is a talented pool of boys, as in life seeing is in the eye of the beholder. In sports, one boy making it over another is just that one player's day. LI 2019 is very talented and every boy who played out there should hold their head high. Outside of a handful of players there is a lot parody amongst the grade. I am sure it was not easy for the evaluators. Every one of those boys will make an impact in their years to come.

The real question now is will anyone get those 80 or so boys together to play against each other in the future.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2019 Fall 2014/Summer 2015 v3.0 - 05/06/15 01:36 PM
91 kids all deserving? REALLY?
I guess the 9 91 kids and 8 express kids were all just better than the rest.

I was there and it was not as black and white as the list seems.

I saw several evaluators talking to a few of the kids on the field and calling them by their first names.

this is the problem, you cant have evaluators that know the boys. its simple, bring in people who don't know the boys and lets see if the same kids get selected.

Where does it say a kid is deserving of a pass on the tryout agenda or itinerary. I doubt any parent regardless of their sons pecking order in this age group would believe he is entitled to a roster spot. The kid who was reserved a spot is probably very good but any kid can be matched up against another great player and look mediocre in the eyes of the evaluators. On a more disturbing thought why should evaluators have any knowledge of a boys reputation or team affiliation if this is a National Lacrosse Event. The whole thing is rotten and perhaps a letter campaign to the Event sponsors or coordinators needs to be an option. It may not change this outcome but prevent these things from happening in the future and remove the people in positions of authority who continue to allow it.

You are 100% correct! The whole process has been flawed from the start. Yeah remember back in December when kids showed up in the freezing cold. Some very good kids got cut that day. Oh, then there was magically another tryout on indoor turf for a totally different group of kids under different circumstances. And then comes the "pride of LI" scam/ money grab. This event being on a Friday night after kids had a full day of school followed for many by an away league game. Kids,falling asleep in car on way because they are exhausted? But god forbid they tryout fresh Saturday morning. Then kids show up on roster who didn't tryout? Are you kidding? This event is rotten to the core.

This is stated on the website:

"Participants can qualify to attend the Brine National All-Star Lacrosse Academy by attending a tryout in their region"

People should ask for a refund, as they did not even follow their own specifically stated process.

Players who were sent home before the final two teams miraculously made Team New [lacrosse]. Many people were left scratching their heads. Go figure that one out.


I have said it before and will say it again. This stuff will never be fair as long as evaluators who are affiliated with clubs who profit from advertising how many of their players make it to these so called elite events. Yes its a shame that players who actually showed up to the events and laid it all out on the line. Its a shame Brine knowingly allows for this type of BS. The worst part is the kids who were cheated. Yes they were cheated. If you don't go to a tryout out you don't make a team. To get a free pass. It shouldn't matter if you were on vacation or sick or hurt that's life and something parents need to understand. Yes a kid is one of the best players in the age group at least show up.

It also happened in 2018. So this is not an anomaly. The other thing is to my knowledge they have yet to even post the players for 2018 because of politics and players who knew they were going to one of the other events still tried out and took up slots. So let the powers that be at Brine know how you feel is all I can say.

Its a shame Brine knowingly allows for this type of BS. The worst part is the kids who were cheated. Yes they were cheated. If you don't go to a tryout out you don't make a team. To get a free pass. It shouldn't matter if you were on vacation or sick or hurt that's life and something parents need to understand. Yes a kid is one of the best players in the age group at least show up.

It also happened in 2018. So this is not an anomaly. The other thing is to my knowledge they have yet to even post the players for 2018 because of politics and players who knew they were going to one of the other events still tried out and took up slots. So let the powers that be at Brine know how you feel is all I can say.


Well said!, and I already sent an email asking for an explanation. Hope others will do the same!

You are 100% correct! The whole process has been flawed from the start. Yeah remember back in December when kids showed up in the freezing cold. Some very good kids got cut that day.

This event being on a Friday night after kids had a full day of school followed for many by an away league game. Kids,falling asleep in car on way because they are exhausted? But god forbid they tryout fresh Saturday morning. Then kids show up on roster who didn't tryout? Are you kidding? This event is rotten to the core.


don't blow things out of proportion. Rotten to the core, really! Sorry if your child did not make it. maybe in the world of you it was rotten to the core but as a whole they will field a very competitive teams with that "Core" of players.

Who makes the decision that they are the top players. It's only an opinion of a parent not a panel or has a panel been set up to judge who is best on the island. Is this decided by 91 and express. What if a kids parents can't afford to pay for 91 or express.I know some kids get a free ride on these teams but some
Fall thru the cracks.No parent has the right to be
Be judge and jury. Parents aren't the experts. So it's wrong in so many ways

You don't need the very best from LI .the competition won't even be close. Too many good kids on the Island so you can throw that excuse out the window. it's time for these things to be exposed. A 2021 kid should not even think of trying out next year. You have no chance. they only want the older kids but will take your money if you want to try out.

This has nothing to do with who did/did not make it. It has to do with a fair tryout. Brine did not follow through on that end they took money every chance they got and offered no transparency into their process which was clearly contradictory to what they state on their website. The fact that kids are on roster but not at tryout is terrible, dishonest and yes rotten to core. They should have one tryout, pick from that,and be done with it. You show up and do well, you're in. Enough with secret added tryout dates and "Pride (money grab) of LI". By the time it's all said and done, you will have spent over 1000$ on a basically useless event during an important recruiting summer.

Who are the core players .My guess is that try are all pretty good and don't need anyone specific. Maybe on their travel teams they do but not on this team. I wonder how the kids that didn't make it off the top teams feel now. They will be told by their directors that it was a tough competition and you weren't good enough.Meanwhile kids from their own team made it and didn't even show up. Tells you how high you are in their eyes. A little advise-- don't keep playing in someone else shadow . maybe you can be top dog someplace else instead of a role player or money gap filler at this age.. don't be held back by other peoples agenda. It's black
And white that's what it is. If you think it's best for your son then stay if not then move on with no regret..Writing seems to be on the wall

All the crying about 3 kids missing the tryout, it was only one. He missed because of a Varsity game. He plays VARSITY lacrosse as an 8th Grader. I think that has to be a valid excuse for a middle school tryout. Every kid on list deserving.

Interesting that an 8th grader is playing Varsity. I would never ask what town but do you really think an 8th grader would play Varsity in a powerhouse program. How often does that happen? If he's that good and plays Varsity in towns like WM, Manhasset, and GC that have large pools of players and talent. I don't mean to leave any of the other great lacrosse towns out but just naming a few. He must be exceptional. If he plays Varsity and is from a non powerhouse program where a good player with decent size in 8th grade could possibly be the best player in that town than playing varsity doesn't really say much. That doesn't make it ok that he missed the tryout. He deserved it based on reputation, yes. Not going to the tryout means you shouldn't make the team.

This should not be a news flash folks - same stuff happened last year and the year before that, etc. Why are people acting so surprised that Club politics played a part. Last year you had kids who did not show for any tryout make one of the 2 teams they put together, you had kids who were not picked for the final Pride of Long Island game make a team - big shock they happened to be from one of the top 2 Club teams. Wake up folks.

If it was a night game then fine.I guess he was told that he didn't have to go the tryout and he was already on the team after being evaluated the first time by ....I will leave that blank..it's ok not to be on the team
Do to schedule conflict. The kids that were hurt or played games that day were not given a pass were they? I can tell you first hand no. Decisions are easy when they are made for you. You get tired playing midfield all game
Before a tryout.

Throw stones? If you don't show up to the tryout you don't make the team. I follow Varsity lacrosse. There are no 8th grade impact players this year. It's an excuse, the team could have done without him. Bottom line is it is unfair for ANY kid to get a free pass onto a tryout selected team. Nobody is that special, sorry! Life is about choices and consequences, not excuses and favoritism. It's embarrassing to make a team under those circumstances.

They took off all the 2020 kids? ...some very good kids. I think that should be a lesson for the younger years in the future- your chances of making this team is very low if you are not an 8th grader. I totally get why they would choose the 8th graders, but with the try out costs so high- I would think putting those bucks into private training would be better spent than sending your kid to the try out as a 7th grader.

My son is attending Brine from a different state and I stumbled across this thread. So is my understanding correct that there was a first round where they charged $100, a second round where they charged 80 kids another $150 and then they mainly took kids off of lists they had already made based on club politics? Doesn't say much for the integrity of the process although it sounds like it will be a great team.

I have not even been notified that my don did not make it. I figured it out based on the fact that text said to look fur email. When I did not get one, I told him he was out. His 91 buddies made it.

Where is the list published?
What about the alternate list?

I emailed them to ask and fit no response.

As was mentioned earlier there was enough talent there to make at least two very competitive teams as they did last year. We went into the tryout knowing there would be politics at play and favoritism. But in looking at the first list there is no denying it has SOME of the best players on it AND some favors. LI has such a large number of talented lacrosse players that many deserving players were left out and did not make it.

Is this second/alternate list going to be a second team? Does anyone have any information on that?

You have no clue about lacrosse and the depth of a program. Any good program wouldn't have an 8th grader playing on Varsity. If you dont have enough talented players in 9th,10th,11th,and 12th grade to fill a Varsity roster you have a program with little to no depth. The depth of GC, Manhasset, and other historically lacrosse rich programs very rarely have 8th graders playing Varsity.

whatever, I have no clue! Way to go kid, double digit points for the season, adding 1 more tonight along with and awesome G:A. Giving this kid some time on varsity and you will see how it helps build the program making it a power house in the future. Since I assume you don't already.

I thought you meant 10 goals at least. Cmon as you know stats don't tell the whole picture .I hope not in this case. It's a work in process and if the school is not good with the older kids. You then bring up the younger ones. It may not be with the older

Couldn't figure out why they would send an email with the kids numbers for the tryout before hand . how stupid was I ..helps to put a name to the number beforehand so they dont screw up the evaluation somehow

yes an away night game... doesn't matter if the highest scorer or not! It is HS Vball and it does come before this.

Anyone who knows can look it up.


This gets better and beter Varsity lacrosse does not play at night. What team? Let's hear it


Oh really, no night games. I know of one tonight started at 7:30. The team the 2019 is on is a playoff team. Enough said. And what's with Gc as a hot bed livin in the past much. Regardless if powerhouse or not still scoring points. Jealous your town didn't ask little johnnie.


You have no clue about lacrosse and the depth of a program. Any good program wouldn't have an 8th grader playing on Varsity. If you dont have enough talented players in 9th,10th,11th,and 12th grade to fill a Varsity roster you have a program with little to no depth. The depth of GC, Manhasset, and other historically lacrosse rich programs very rarely have 8th graders playing Varsity.


"Any good program wouldn't have an 8th grader playing on Varsity." - So you're saying West Islip wasn't a "good program" when Nicky Gallasso was playing varsity in 8th grade? There are other examples, but that one came to mind right away.

whatever, I have no clue! Way to go kid, double digit points for the season, adding 1 more tonight along with and awesome G:A. Giving this kid some time on varsity and you will see how it helps build the program making it a power house in the future. Since I assume you don't already.

Look Mom, dad, aunt, uncle, whoever this is. Because if its not than your indepth knowledge of an 8th graders coming and goings on the lacrosse field is creepy.

I dont want this to be about your kid. It all started with the fact this player was given a spot on a team without showing up for the last tryout. The fact that you said he was entitled to it because he plays varsity in 8th grade is just insanly ridiculous. No one should be entitled to anything except what they earn. You chose his Varsity game over the tryout and thats fine. You made the choice. The fact that others made the choice to go to the actual final tryout should have trumped his previous stellar showings on the field. He was not there!!!!! When other parents are paying and being told that a fair and transparent tryout system is going to be used to determine the team and stuff like this happens it pisses people off.

I have been around this sport for a long time. The fact that you dont know the history of Teams like WM, Manhasset, and GC and other programs shows your fly like mentality. A 48hr snapshot is what you base your deductions on regarding powerhouse programs. GC has won I believe 19 county titles Manhasset 17 and Ward Melville 22. Please provide me with how many your powerhouse program has won and I will eat crow if it comes anywhere near these teams. If you think one player is going to make a powerhouse program you are mistaken. It takes a great youth program that feeds a steady flow of fundamentally sound players to the Junior High and High School programs. Little Johnny cant play every position on the field. Which means he cant pass it to himself or you think he can do that also.

I said rarely. Yes, exceptions do occur. Its just rare that in historically strong programs that an 8th grader plays Varsity. Coaches will usually try and groom younger players and try and protect them early on. 8th graders plsying Varsity will happen more often in weaker programs.

I guess there is no reason to continue this conversation because you will rebuff any accomplishments and say weak program.

I don't think the program in question is weak, I dont think the competition he played was weak (some sure, not all) but that is only one persons opinion.

Again I really don't know the program he plays for. I also don't have an issue with the kid. All the power to him. [b] I have a problem when events hold a tryout and a player is given a free pass.

The only real issue is that he was put on a team without going thru the process like everyone else. It gives Brine no credence
At all. The kid is not at fault only the powers in charge. legacy took over Brine and this looks and smells bad and it would be very hard to dispute . that and the fact 19 kids from 91 made the team or alternates.They added two 2020 kids to the alternates o make it look like the younger kids should try out and have a shot..one more thing..if you dont think they left out the clubs the alternates play for on purpose then you are naive ..they learned their lesson when they put out the kids that made the team..I guess they are getting smarter

I agree. There is a lot wrong with the process, we can only hope they acknowledge the mistakes that were made and try to do better next time. As for the alternates, the two 2020 deserved those spots. The fogo was the second best performer at that tryout (in other years two fogos are taken to the first team) . The other 2020 kid had an excellent tryout as well, standing out. Many of the other alternates play for Legacy and could have easily made the first team based on their performance at the tryout. You would expect most kids to be from Express or 91, because those are the two dominant teams from LI. I would expect that next year you will see a few Legacy kids make it. Good luck to all the boys who attended the Pride of LI games. On any given day any of you could have been selected.

Since tryouts last summer/fall, FCA has beaten Madlax, 91 and 3d NE. Their only loss was to Express in OT. Express has beaten Dukes and 91 has beaten Crabs. I think Crabs and Madlax play this weekend.

It would be a breath of fresh air to have some new talent showcased and acknowledged. I believe that's why people sour on these kind of events. It's kind of like the 91 and Express tryouts...teams are already preselected even if you beat their better players. I know of many talented players who did not attend this event because of the shenanigans of having players make the team who did not go to tryouts. We've all seen this before at team tryouts. This is why people get angry. There are plenty of talented players out there that don't play for 91, Express or even Legacy. Perhaps they carry a weaker team but make no mistake they are talented. These events just recirculate and promote the big club players. It would be refreshing to have an unbiased event.

I think anyone who has a problem with the try out should contact Brine directly. Their name is associated with this event and I'm sure they would like to know what's going on.

I'm in agreement you have to be at tryout to make team or be on the alternate list if he's a Stud player.

Who cares what he plays. He wasn't at the tryout, and shouldn't be on the roster.

We as moderators will not allow for any negativity. This roster is posted in a number of places on the internet. Regardless of the BS with the tryout these boys earned their spots and deserve recognition. All the boys that tried out were good players and deserving of a spot. These are the boys that stood out and were selected to represent LI. Lets see if they add another team as they have in the past.

I have expressed my concern about the issues with the tryout. I will not deprive those who deserve praise because of a flaw in the system. All these boys represent Long Island and I can assure you they will play their tails off and bring home another first place trophy. Good luck to all the boys this summer.

If it's a Long Island Team, why are there players that are not from Long Island on it? I don't have a kid that was cut because of it, but it seems strange.

Brine had no response to me. They took my money real quick, but it's been days now without an answer. I have also talked to several from both lists who say they are not attending for different reasons. Some who are in key positions. Don't be surprised if additional kids get an invite.

I was under the impression that Brine does not post the names unless the player has accepted and registered.

Just talking about the boys on the two selection lists. They will need to reach out to others to complete the roster, before the official is posted. I believe today is the deadline to respond.

what I don't understand is why they posted the first list on their website for all to see and then sent the second list privately to the players so nobody else can see !!!??? where is the real final ???? And why if they tried out and made the team would kids not go ? Jake Reed starts when Brine ends

Several kids are going to JR, a much more important event for them as it is an important recruting event and Brine has ltitle value there. 2020 kids are going to Warrior world series of lacrosse. These other events purposely conflict with Brine.

Yes and I am sure the parents selected for both did or are doing their homework to be able to do both events.

No one was really worried about the 2020 kids believe me..they are never a factor with Brine.. Alot of kids never flew down for Jake reed luckily otherwise no one would be able to play Brine

So let me get this right if you weren't at the tryout .. injured or sick its's "TOUGH LUCK" and if you know someone it's "GOOD LUCK" thats just wrong !!

BRINE should NOT allow anyone who wasn't at the tryout to be on the final team if thats the rule !!

I would think you would rather be fresh for Jake Reed. Obviously that one had a legit tryout system compared to Brine and is way more prestigious and meaningful.

There is a lot to consider if you were selected to do both. There is a carry over of a day. Championship day Brine to Sign-in and first practice for JR.

I think the issue is, is it too much for a player to do both. It is an individual issue. Some may be able to do it others maybe not.

One of the kids dad who was selected is an evaluator who coaches with the same kids dad who was the exception. All of your complaining isn't going to change the results so just move on and realize you got punked if you believe your boy was or is better.

Is it a good tryout for those kids because they made it or were they just picked to throw off the scent.

Just get over the fact that your kid didn't make it and stop trying to continue the drama. They can't take everyone.

They cant take everyone but they sure can take almost all the 91 kids..They must be the most talented players out there and all the other organizations are ok at best. I am sure 91 and express will be fine with their own showcase . No need to add additional kids from other organizations just to fill up spots on rosters to add more teams. Don't waste your money if you received the same invite

I get it you are pissed that your son was overlooked and that one player wasn't at the tryout. But if you look at the list and ask your son about the boys who made it he might tell you that the boys selected are pretty darn good.

Not much anymore. It's where the suckers go to play now. Maverick and other much better. But if you're good, you don't need any of these scams for the coaches to recruit you. My kid never went to any of this and was offered by several top 10 programs. But, if you want to spend $1500 for JR and the like, I'm sure they'll take your money. cool

Nobody cares who the kid is, who he plays for,blah blah blah. Don't you idiots get it? You don't show up (for whatever reason) you don't get a free pass. people are mad for a reason, and deserve to be! This in no way affected my son, nevertheless, I'm outrageous by the entitled mentality!

Wake up people !!!

Fact -- kid made the team and wasn't there !!
Fact --- evaluators were on side lines so it looked like it was a fair tryout
Fact --- evaluators input really didn't matter there was a team before the tryout
Fact --- they made a lot of money
Fact --- Many boys earned a spot on team and didn't stand a chance if they don't play for 91 or express
Fact --- Many boys learned a hard lesson ... It's not always about talent it's about mommy and daddy and their friends first ..

Not trying to take away from kids that made teams they are all great players but some kids that didn't get picked deserved it more than some that did

Folks- No horse in this race, but my kid played Brine last year.

LI is only region that takes Brine seriously. Other regions can barely field teams. Teams that post are not the best players.

Brine is nothing more than a money grab.

If you can't figure out who the kid is or the father then you are out of the loop. You need to get in it or it will be your child left behind. people catch up to other people So time will tell. Some kids won't even be playing in college because they like other sports .They always like the kid who plays multiple sports over the ones that only play lacrosse. It's the entitlement that bothers people the most. It wasn't a fair tryout at all. And all the 91 and express parents can say what they want but those are 100% the facts

You do know we are talking about kids that are 13 to 14 years old. If being arrogant prevents a kid from being singled out, I guess I will be arrogant. You can register and not be anonymous and then maybe you can email me and explain to me why you feel I am being arrogant by trying to avoid the negativity and attacks on individual players.

You do know we are talking about kids that are 13 to 14 years old. If being arrogant prevents a kid from being singled out, I guess I will be arrogant. You can register and not be anonymous and then maybe you can email me and explain to me why you feel I am being arrogant by trying to avoid the negativity and attacks on individual players.



The arrogance i'm referring to is, because one is ,"Out of the loop he shouldn't know."

I agree. By that guys mentality if there were 3 tryouts on the same day for three different teams it would be ok to put a "special player" on all three teams just because he deserves it with no regard for the other kids who were there.

If I knew who the kid was and he was a top flight player. I wouldn't be making a stink.


Nobody cares who the kid is, who he plays for,blah blah blah. Don't you idiots get it? You don't show up (for whatever reason) you don't get a free pass. people are mad for a reason, and deserve to be! This in no way affected my son, nevertheless, I'm outrageous by the entitled mentality!

And in all honesty the kid isn't the real problem, it's that the powers that be didn't have enough integrity to do the right thing. If something is billed as a fair and honest venture it should be run in that way. Even at the event itself where the non-partial evaluators were speaking to the players they knew by name while they were standing right next to a player that had no history with that evaluator. I'm sure those players felt comfortable in the fact that they would get a fair shake.

Holding back to repeat the 8th grade, when clearly obviously done with school, & club coaches knowledge is not what 91 has stooped to yet.

I am sure if it meant BRINE or 3d needed them to start doing that they would start that band wagon and parents would be getting on board.

They made sure to hawk their wares in MD this weekend with BRINE name in bold letters on the 91 tent.

No need, BRINE is sprawled across the tent for all to see. That is why the MD parents are frazzled about Oswald making 91Maryland. He will be guaranteed placement in Brine and 3d even if does not make it to a tryout or he is not the best player on the field.

Well, Gulf Coast 91 didn't workout, might as well try MD. Not sure if I get this decision? Market is highly saturated, maybe they're looking for an acquisition target. Are top DMV players leaving Crabs, Madlax, FCA, Hawks, etc. to go to 91? Odd business move.

Because those states have real people running it. Look at who ran yours and that will tell you why. None of the top clubs were represented there just the evaluators B level club.

I can tell you from being there that there were certainly coaches on the sidelines with there books with all the player profiles and were taking notes on certain kids. This was during the 2019 games.

You are absolutely crazy if you don't believe college recruiting is focusing on current 2019 players. I'm not saying they are locking up players, but they certainly want an inside line on 2019.

My 2019 attend the Prep School Showcase at Brunswick in CT this weekend. He had a blast. Was coached in games and drills by the head coach of Brown, Michigan and Williams and assistants from Penn and Cornell. There were only 15-20 2019s there. They were mixed with 2018, 2017 and 2016 for games. Class years wore different colored shorts. Great learning and exposure. Coaches are looking at 2019s.

You are correct, I did reply to the wrong post. If you look up a few posts, you will see a reply claiming there weren't any recruiters at the 2019 events. It was simply my personal, direct observation. No agenda, friend.

The real question is how old the players are. Funny if you ever get to hear the Sweat Lax guys talk about the Dukes and the Dukes guys talk about the Sweat Lax Guys. Its comical. Stand behind the bench before a game

I think some of their defenders could get a Gillete Commercial themselves. hey I am all for puberty hitting some a bit earlier but your 15 going to be 16 before 12/31/15

Dukes and HHH Split. Dukes is 2019 on up and Dukes Young Gunz is 2020 and down. HHH was the middle school feeder to Dukes. Not sure what was the catalyst for the split. I am assuming HHH/Big 4 wanted to have HS teams to make more $$ and it would conflict??? For what its worth we also heard that Dukes attempted to get the Sons to join and become their MS feeder but Sons said no. Some of this info i'm hearing second hand from credible guys but its still second hand. So whats interesting will be this weekend with Dukes, and HHH are both fielding 2019 and 2018 teams at the platinum event. Wondering who the cross over kids are going to play with.

Lax fest is fast becoming a must skip tournament. They boast about all these coaches being there, yet very few ever there. NSCLA tournament is also that weekend. Much higher level of competition at Big 4 and NSCLA.

Been going to this for a few years now and there have always been a few years of ups and downs. I will say IMHO it is always a bit better, a buzz if you will for Li when Express is able to play. When Jesters Play Outlaws... and many other Li teams like fl$ and now Igloo, Empire and Legacy face each other. From the top team on down.

It is always a great opportunity to play other teams you would never see. It is a great time to walk around and see some good lacrosse.
Some great games in the past. three years ago in 2018 a local Li team played 91; two years ago there was that texas team; last year Laxacheusetts playing crush then express.

it is games like those that make the tournament great.

Seriously 91 white is an excellent team and you should go to the same tournaments as orange. You guys can definetly hang with those teams they play against. Most of your players can play on someone else A team. I would take that team to another club so you can get the recgonition they deserve.

Meaning they are the odd man out. Those boys won't get same recruiting exposure like orange and a lot of those kids deserve it.

Just because sone parents think their kid is better then the kids on Orange and try letting everyone know it doesn't mean they are better so know where you stand and stop trying to ruffle sone feathers . Your kid is good but not the best because you say he is. Stick with the White and hopefully your son will get a look or you can try and buy your way into a college for him

This is coming from one parent who feels slighted because they didn't attend the Platinum Cup. Do you honestly think that college coaches were there recruiting 8th graders?? Let's be honest, no one there was getting recruited. They will be at similar recruiting tournaments in the fall which is when things start to count. They have 5 kids going to Jake Reed, just as many as orange. So if there kids are good they will get seen. If you are unhappy go to another organizations A team. We had a parent do that last year and now they want to come back. I'll bet the second 91 team will get more attention than one of those other teams. Instead of coming on here to start crap put your effort elsewhere. Like supporting the team you are on.

Not saying the kids are better. Saying they are A players and deserve to be recruited and treated well by 91. They beat everyone else A team on the island. Those boys deserve to go to top recruiting tournaments. That's the point. Not b level tournaments outside of New [lacrosse]. So relax not trying to say the kids are better then orange. I would welcome any of those boys on my sons team.

Which 91 team had more kids selected for the Brine NLC at the Pride of LI game?

91 pulled a lot of strings, but likely some kids did not get the invite. Are some parents unhappy about it?

It is insane, but this statement that "nobody was there recruiting 8th graders" is patently false.
Personally saw plenty of d1 coaches you would all recognize watching 2019 Adrenaline games - notebooks out - taking notes, talking to 2019 coaches, etc. Very much engaged in the process. Hopkins already has like a dozen 2018s verbally committed - who do you think they are there watching?

Agree that 91 White is a good team with fine players - hope the program does as much for them as they do for Orange - at least the Jake Reed kids will get a chance to shine in a great venue with good college exposure.
Good luck to all this summer.

Let's also be honest about this: there were supposedly a hundred plus coaches at he Denver Shootout, the Baltimore Showcase, the Richmond Gait tourney and the Adrenaline event. There were also Under Armour underclass tryouts going on in one region where "all the coaches go". Oh, and most of the best HS upperclassmen were at the USA U-19 indoor final tryouts last weekend as well where coaches were too.

Is there any area code in the U.S. where the 70 or so lacrosse coaches in Division 1 were not all at once last weekend? Maybe Andy Kaufman didn't really die and he is putting hair and make up coach look alikes out there.

No one here is saying White team is better or even as good as Orange. The 2019 Orange team is outstanding. Best in the USA likely. The poster above simply putting forth the argument that the White team is better than most other A teams and should be put in more competitive tournaments. The 91 admin needs to put these boys in front of the same college scouts becuSe they deserve similar attention. This would promote team and club support from within.

And it might stop the bickering from some patents who think their kid is better then the kids on orange. And all they do is keep telling people the same thing that their kid is better

I know many of the white parents and none of them say their kids are better then orange. Orange is a special team. What happens is they are the second team and many of these top tournaments aren't going to take two teams from the same club. But I just saw not the case at adrenaline. fl$ goes to better tournaments then white and white beats that team up. I sympathize with the white parents. And they also beat legacy this year. They stepped up to the plate and showed they are in the same conversation with top teams in the region. It shows in their record over last two years.

How many kids from 91 White and Orange will go to St. Ant's and Chaminade next year?

Maybe some of the "who's better" talk will be settled on the freshman starting rosters.

College scouts? They are in 8th grade. These nuts. Does your kid even know what he wants to fo for a living. I think you are crazy. Do you really think that all kids from 91 are going D1? Come on man. Do you have any idea how many kids are not going to play in college that are good. There are just to many kids playing and not enough places to put them. Listen dude you need to get a grip on really. Just be thankful that your kid goes to college and gets an education. The rest will take care of itself

It looks like Hopkins has their recruiting classes filled through high school graduation year 2018. So to keep busy this summer they are probably watching the 2019s, 2020s and possibly the 2021s along with UNC and Maryland. Soon these kids might skip high school altogether.

With the obvious express ties at the Catholics, it will be interesting to see which 2019 players from 91 White and Orange break the glass ceiling with starting spots & good PT next year (over Express kids and over each other).

If there are a lot of 91 kids going, It should also answer some questions as to "who's better" at certain positions amongst the 91 Parents since the coaches don't have to deal with 91 parents regularly (less 91 politics).

Not saying those other publics schools mentioned are not any good. Just pointing out an interesting possibility.

Does anyone have a count of those kids going to St A's or Cham?
How about from True Blue, Legacy, Revolution, etc?

Always remember that the goalies are only as good adjacent defense in front of them and the D is only as good as the midfielders
Getting back and the attack can't do anything without the ball. Common sense I know. But these kids may not be that good on their own . You will get exposed . Plenty of good goalies out there on weaker teams that cone up big in games because they have to ..Those would be the ones to look at

Best goalies not always selected, as been seen time and time again. Goalie talent for 2019 superior on teams other than 91. As witnessed in tryouts, tournys, 3d, etc.

Xanders recap of Adrenaline claims Dukes and Big4 have split - I think you are right that HHH used to be the feeder but apparently no more? Also might explain why "Dukes" isnt listed at a pretty good event - won't play in an event sponsored by team that split from them?

If your team was not in the tournament your name can't be on the list . Politics at it's best . Don't even bother trying . Just want to save you time .some of the same Brine kids that never showed for the tryout on it again . It gets old real fast

No the list is just made up.Put your sons name on it.

It is crazy but is also reality - if it helps your kid get to a school me may or may not be able to w/o lax, what is the harm.

Also, using the word "decide" on a school isnt actually fair - these are verbals, not binding. Just the same as when you ask the coach at XYZ U how many kids he is going to take in this class - he says 8, then you wake up one day and he already has 12 or 13 (cough, Hopkins, cough).

Will be very curious to see stats in the next few years on switching comittments - it will be large, kids changing minds, poaching by other coaches, needing to wait for the Ivies who dont go early, etc..
Crazy yes, but I think the kids really are in control here until Natl Signing Day
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2019 Fall 2014/Summer 2015 v3.0 - 06/19/15 01:08 PM
Kids are in control of what. If they commit to a team at these ages it's because the parents want them to so they can say look at my son. The kids have no idea what they want yet unless your a held back 2019 and you could be 16 already.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2019 Fall 2014/Summer 2015 v3.0 - 06/19/15 01:35 PM
Question: For kids who commit early, are they considered "off limits" by other coaches? How much poaching actually occurs? I thought I read that some D1 coaches (Notre Dame?) make no bones about recruiting kids who have given verbals elsewhere. Just wondering to what extent a kid truly takes himself off the market by verbally committing?
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2019 Fall 2014/Summer 2015 v3.0 - 06/19/15 02:24 PM
Below is from another thread: Thought it might be applicable here too.

-{ "Wow, sounds like a bunch of jealous parents to me. I say congratulations to the kid and his family.

The rest of you need to get a grip and focus on your own kid and his/her deal..."}


--- "Couldn't agree more. The problem is that many parents refuse to honestly evaluate their children. Many become bitter and jealous and spew venom and hate at other children. They do it on this site, they do it on the sideline and they do it around town. When another child is having more success than their child they look to tear that child down anyway they can. Its ugly.

If the kid scores a lot of goals the jealous parents will call the player a "Ball Hog".

If the kid makes an "All Star / Elite / Top Club" team the bitter parents will say its only because his/her Dad knows the coaches.

If the kid commits to a Top 5 or 10 college the jealous parent will say the player will never get on the field.

If the kid commits to Harvard the bitter jealous parent will say my son/daughter doesn't want to go to an Ivy League School.

If the kid commits to a Big D-I School the jealous parents will say we are focusing on academics and looking at D-III schools.

If a kid is being actively recruited by a number of top programs the bitter jealous parents will say we are looking at ABC and XYZ and we visited XXX even though their kid is not being recruited by those schools.

It's never ending, on our sideline this past spring we had parents counting out loud the number of turnovers a player had. We have parents chirping loudly "Pass The Ball" however I never heard those words when the Jealous bitter parents child had the ball. If it were not so sad it would be funny.

Couple all of the hate and venom spewed with all of the [lacrosse] Kissing many of these parents do and you have a cesspool of a sideline. Does not matter if it is school or club, the [lacrosse] kissers are there. They will kiss the [lacrosse] of the coach, Club Director, AD, Assistant Coach, Spouse of the coach, Sibling of the coach, friend of the coach, anyone who they think can help. Have you ever noticed how certain parents always have a reason to talk to or email the coach? Even the ones who are bitter on the sideline, they make sure they put on the happy face just before their nose hits the coaches [lacrosse]. Love it when I see a kid who does not get the hype from the club or school get recruited (by top college programs) over the favored ones. All the [lacrosse] kissing from parents and the misguided efforts of a bad coach will not stop the college coaches from identifying the top athletes.

It's a mess. Hope your club and or town is different".

The Predators beat Edge 2019 pretty easily (9-5) last weekend in Albany. The Preds are a good team with some elite players but doubtful they would be able to beat a team like the Crabs. Maybe Edge had an off day in Albany.

That was actually edge 2020 in Albany playing in the 2019 Div. Edge 2019s first tournament this season was the NSCLA

That's interesting. In talking to Edge parents in Albany, they told us it's their 8th grade team and their players told our kids they were all 14 year old 8th graders. If Edge played grade appropriate, they would be an average team at best.

Good job by both Express 1 and Express North at Big4 this weekend - Express 1 loses only to HHH who won it and North lost only to FCA (in OT) who was unbeaten up till the playoffs.

Xanders recap of Adrenaline claims Dukes and Big4 have split - I think you are right that HHH used to be the feeder but apparently no more? Also might explain why "Dukes" isnt listed at a pretty good event - won't play in an event sponsored by team that split from them?


HHH was the feeder program for Dukes until this past fall. After they split the team known as Dukess HHH is now called Big 4 HHH. The team called Big 4 is made up of players who tried out for the HHH team and didn't make it. FWIW there is bad blood between Dukes and HHH over the way the HHH staff handled the split. It will be a cold day in [lacrosse] before you see a Dukes team playing in a Big 4 sponsored event, and now Big 4 is in a partnership with LIE and Team 91 it's unlikely that those two teams will play Dukes going forward.

The level of play this past weekend at the tourny was extremely high. Tip of the cap to the organization for doing their best to adjust to the weather and field conditions as well.

The turnout of college coaches at the event was also exceptional.

No one here ever gives teams outside of Long Island/ Crabs any credit. Look to New England where they have laxachusetts who has one of the top 2019 teams and 2018 teams in the country. There are also good teams like 3D and Tomohawks. There are a ton a commits out of Massachusetts so don't like that only the kids from Express, 91, Crabs, etc are the best.

I had not seen the Laxachusetts teams before this weekend and I was impressed. All of their teams at Big 4 were competitive. Big, strong and fast players on every team.

The 2019 team did have a tough weekend, but they are a very good team look at what they did at the platinum cup they were a goal or two away from winning at adrenaline. Watch them grow in the future because they are a deep and talented team.

Would move Laxachusetts behind Madlax, Express and FCA. Played well last week, but only won one game this weekend vs a winless team and lost to Madlax, FCA and Express North by 5 or more each.

Not sure Sweetlax and Tri-State are better than Dukes, Express North or (gasp) Edge.

Dukes lost to 91 by a goal and by two to the Crabs at Adrenaline in tow very competitive games. You rank Dukes 10th and HHH got beaten handily by Laxachussetts twice and their ranked second while Laxachussetts is ranked 4th. Seems like someone didn't even bother to watch any 2019 games at Adrenaline last weekend.

Sweetlax played a tough one goal game vs Express where they led the whole way. Also, Tri State lost a close game to Express by 2. And Tri State was up at half on HHH after a strong performance by the defense and goalie (Held HHH to 1 at the half)
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2019 Fall 2014/Summer 2015 v3.0 - 06/22/15 09:53 PM
HHH won Big 4 tournament 6-5 over Madlax in last seconds. Great game. Laxachusetts went 1-3, losing big to FCA, Madlax and LI Express North.

Laxachusetts probably ranked too high

#1 and 2 probably would be favored by +3 against #9 and 10. Otherwise, these teams are even, with a couple of bounces, calls, or 14yo boy mistakes making the difference on any day.

Very entertaining play.

Best two teams - 91 and Edge - to my knowledge, neither team has lost and they have not played each other
Then Crabs
Then everyone else on the list is within a goal or two of each other on any given day.
A lot of this will get sorted out at Young Guns. Why is 91 not playing? What are teams doing about the fact that Jake Reed runs through Sat. morning and will likely leave teams missing players for the first Young Guns games on Saturday?

There must be Edge parents visiting this board because otherwise I don't think anyone would mention them among the top 2019 teams because they ARE NOT a 2019 team.

I agree with many of the previous posts that most all of the top 10 teams people have listed are all within a goal or two of each other on any given day.

I wonder how the Edge "2019" team would fair against 91 or Express 2018s?

That would be a more direct comparison. Edge Lacrosse registers their teams down an age group at each tournament. The tournament directors should not permit this practice. Plain and simple. Your team is comprised of rising 9th graders? then they play in the 2019 bracket...roster comprised of rising 10th graders (as Edge 2019 is currently comprised) you play in the 2018 division. Fair play.

Perhaps you should urge your director to grow a pair and refuse to play such teams. No game, no issue. Don't understand why more coaches and directors don't have the guts to just refuse the game. When you know the team is playing down, just don't play. If more and more teams did this, there would be no incentive to play down. It would make such a powerful statement. Teams like Edge, Crabs, Laxachuesstts and Dukes would have no one to play... If the big clubs started to stand up for their players safety the tournament organizers would have to take notice.

The funny part of their rationale is that all the canada boys will do a PG year after HS , so would be entering college the same year as our boys - but PG stands for post- grad...and tourneys are slotted based on (HS) grad year, not college entrance year. So.....

I know all the travel teams on Long Island and I can tell you I know of maybe 2 holdbacks that are playing on 2019 teams. I guess we haven't kept up with the times and are old fashioned in having our kids play and compete against their appropriate age group.

It does become comical when we play teams that have boys who have beards and mustaches. I have no problem with boys playing up in High School because it is allowed and we know what our boys are up against. it sucks when you go to a tourney and there are boys who clearly should not be on the field

Leading Edge and Edge are two separate organizations. for that matter countries.
Leading Edge has among the best 2016, 2017 (won Adrenaline Cup), and 2018 teams. In NJ, they tend to pull most of the best kids by freshmen year to the team. Before frehsman year, they tend to be spread across Leading Edge, Patiot, and Tri-State but by freshman year most of the best kids in the state play Leading Edge. So keep talking as they will probably kick your [lacrosse] next year like they do to your older teams.

But they're illegitimate and are 2018 until they're not. I don't even have 2019. This just pisses me off. How about I have my 6'2" 188 lbs 2018 middie play with a 2019 LI team next time they play Edge. He'll PG that game? Sounds reasonable, don't you think?

He was the talk of the tourney, not for his size, but for driving himself to the tourney

Heard they are legal to vote, join the army and buy booze. Get off it...they are 14 and some turning 15. How anyone can talk about edge and gloss over Crabs and the rest is pure and simple nationalism. You clowns don't call out our own US clubs for doing it but hate on the Canadians. It gets old. It's the wild west, no rules. Blame US Lacrosse.

I know the team 91 2019 kids and not one of them is a hold back. Express is also a team that has a few if that but other organizations for 2019s are mot doing the right thing

Have you read the crabs thread? They are being called on it. They even just played Edge and called them out as having many older players, but explained they weren't whining, just pointing it out as to why they lost a game to them. It's all a joke. I hope there are more and more tournaments that start asking for age verification. At the very least, publish rosters with birthdates so all teams know what they are playing against. If there are no age limits, let's at least be transparent with the rosters.

2019 is basically U-14 for this season. Correct? The birthdate cutoff for U-14 is Sept 1, 2000

If this is the case, are you 100% sure the current roster has nobody born before this date. If there is even one player born before this date than the team in not a U-14 team. Remember, holdbacks can happen any time including starting Kindergarten late.

During the round-robin games in April that were hosted by the Hopkins coaching staff they requested that clubs only bring true 2019s, no reclasses.

Apparently they college coaches don't want to watch kids play down either.

The kids turning 15 are playing down but that must be ok if you also allow them to join the army and buy booze at that age.

Things people were probably talking about:

"I wonder why he can't play against kids his own age?"
"How would he do covering the top 2018 attackmen?"
"He must not be as good as the 20+ 2018 defensemen who have already committed to D1 programs, otherwise he would be playing with boys his age."

Interesting. A team is considering 2019 simply because the program registers them in that division?

And despite all the holdback chatter / complaints - Platinum Cup championship game is 91 v Express, probably the least amt of holdbacks, if any


So let me understand , it's ok to only have a few holdbacks ?


Holding a kid back is a parental decision. Registering in a younger division is a program decision. Also, a holdback is actually in the correct HS grad year division.

Reclassifying and registering teams down are not one in the same. I deplore reclassifying for athletic advantage but those kids are actually in the 2019 grad year. Edge is not. their 2019 teams will graduate HS in 2018.

The reclassed 2018 player is actually now a 2019 grad. You are correct, it stinks, but what is worse is a program that registers 2018 TEAMS down a year when they are not 2019. Do you not grasp the difference. Why don't all programs register all of their teams down a division?

i questioned this tonight and found out there were 3 players that had varsity games that day. I was told one rushed there after playing and the another had a night game, the third didn't have a game! I give the night game kid a pass; but I would guess they all earned it if they played varsity and BTW, I don't care if it was varsity for Brentwood, Valley Stream or North Babylon.

It didn't say the weather was going to be bad, it said the field conditions are not good. I'd say these tournaments are getting cancelled because the colleges do not want their fields torn up as it costs them money to replace. Wonder if there is a way to find out who is making the decision.

The Tri State team at LaxClash was not the AA/Black team. The Black team was at Philly Showdown where they beat Patriot (NJ) 9-2 before the tourney got called off.

All games played at Lax Clash NYIT on turf, some good, some not so good...HHH and fl$ was a close game till late in second half then some quick scores by HHH broke it open for a 7-3 final, good game though...Then there were the other games I saw...3tribes got smoked by Lax black (12-1) and Express returned the favor in the semi and final handling both Lax yellow and Lax black easily (10-3 and 12-4)...now with HHH handing Express it's only lose of the tourney and fl$ playing them strong...gotta figure this tourney spoke volumes as to level of play still being pretty strong on the island...hope this tourney attracts some more local elite teams next year...91, true blue, etc... make it a home affair, save some hotel fees, gas...to bad about the weather...would have been some more nice games played.

Laxachusetts got trounced by Express at Lax Clash, you can drop them even further on this list, not raise up...on any given day this list can be flipped, teams dropped ( FCA, MadLax) and teams added ( 3tribes, fl$)... it doesn't mean anything...stop with the lists and whose better than who and just play each other for the benefit of the boys and the game...

If I'm not mistaken, HHH has lost to Lax Black by significant margins multiple times (APC and Clash). Also, haven't they beaten Express by decent margins twice (Big 4 and Clash)? if that's the case, how does Express blow out Lax Black? And if that's the case, which program has the better 2019 team?

I've seen so many excellent former true blue players roaming the fields. Too bad they can't keep these players together. Would be at least 2 very good teams.

Good team and great coach. TB is just having chemistry problems. The coaches will pull them together. Everyone goes through some ruff spots now and then. Cook is an excellent coach. Played for him a couple of years ago and he did a great job with my boy. Pleasant to talk to and really cares about the kids and the game. Would play for him anytime. Hang in there boys, remember it has a lot to do with the kids. Pull it together and don't let minor stuff affect what could be a good summer. Boy's get the coaches back and he will get yours. Don't give up.

It didn't say the weather was going to be bad, it said the field conditions are not good. I'd say these tournaments are getting cancelled because the colleges do not want their fields torn up as it costs them money to replace. Wonder if there is a way to find out who is making the decision.


Was this a 91 run tournament or Express? Is it all LI run tournaments that have no rain insurance?


No one has rain insurance!! Fields are not playable. It happens. In 10 years of coaching travel youth lacrosse and have been rained out two days and modified 3 times. Not so bad!

Yeah they are at Jake Reed trying to get the kids to commit who don't even make their beds everyday.. they were there mostly looking at 2018 kids but watched 2019 to see what was out there and start the process as I was told by two of the people checking out the kids . If your kid did well at brine then believe me he can play at the higher level

Those that commit this early are doing so because of two reasons ..the parents have a lot of money so what school there son goes to doesn't matter financially. Schools loot for that ..or their parents have egos and are forcing their kids to commit so it appeases the parents egos and they can say they were first..not to many 14 year old s make their bed every day so how can they pick a college or major . They don't , their parents do..That's the facts

Listen I totally agree with you. I think it's ridiculous but unfortunately it's the way of lacrosse nowadays. I hate it to because my son is going into 9th but hasn't really started his growth yet and it seems the early bloomers are the ones getting looked at. If you are a 5'10" 160 lb attackman at this age you are totally ahead of the game. My son is 5'0" 110 but has the skill but unfortunately size is a factor right now.

That has to be a typo. Still, the whole Edge team is from 2018. It's disappointing that they are still allowed to enter as a 2019 team.

If so, as a parent that spent a significant amount of time and money (over July 4th weekend) getting to the games, I am very dissapointed. Are we at the point now where the rules simply don't matter and are no longer being enforced? Can my 2016 son play on my 2019 son's team in the next tournament? At what point does this end?

Actually here are the facts:

US Lacrosse states; U14: All players must be 13years old or younger on the August 31st preceding competition.

The reason that US Lacrosse uses the "U" groupings is to avoid any discrepancies as far as age, this is done to keep the players SAFE.

"Cheating" only exists when teams have players that "CLAIM" to be graduates of a graduate year when the player should in fact be graduating a year or sometimes if two before that year. Why can no one get the concept that just because "Johnny" is actually graduating in say.....2019 that does NOT mean they are the appropriate age for that graduating year!?

So as far as the argument here goes, even if the player in question is a 2018 graduate it IS possible that he can be the SAME age or even YOUNGER than some of the players that are graduating in 2019.

Actually, have a good group of parents and kids. Celebrating a win in a consolation bracket is kind of strange, even though beating Legacy's best team is a nice win. With 2 losses in pool play to the All grays and NJ Riot, that does not get you to the championship bracket.

I was watching ESPN youth lax tournament in Denver over the weekend. One of the commentators said one of the LI boys had recently turned 14 and it was a u14 division.

Playing kids down a division is becoming common and parents couldn't care less about teaching values or perception.

Really!!! The difference between both matchups came down to face offs, which Tli lost most the 1st game, giving up only 6 goals in that game when Tli was man down for most of that game. Our offense could not get the ball and unable to get ball in net. The same Tli kid dominated face offs 2nd game- Tli still was man down much of the game but were able to get more possessions to put points up. Most goAls for Tli were from great ball movement for easy lay ups,most goals for legacy from outside shots especially from their man up opportunities.

Team Long Island beat Legacy. Make any excuse you want to but we lost. Commandos better get there act together or they will lose even more of the better players.. I know at least three very good boys looking for other options at this time. Hope we can get back to playing in a manner we can be proud of. Starting attack line needs to be tweaked in my humble but honest opinion..

One more time for the impaired readers, TLI does NOT have any older kids. really, forget the graduating year BS. Every kid on that team is of age. Aside from the 3 younger kids who are between 12 & 13, EVERY kid is 14! I'll bet Legacy and every other team can say the same thing so enough with the silly statements of TLI is a bunch of cheaters.

I agree that it's not fair for your 15 year old eighth grader to play against a 14 year old ninth grader. After all you held him back, forced him to repeat a year just to increase his chance at getting a 25% scholarship at a bottom third DI school just to satisfy your own steroid soaked ego. Totally unfair. File a protest with the organizers. Oh that's right, they knowingly decided to accommodate U-based clubs by entering their teams in the most appropriate nominally grade based bracket. It's not like TLI was the only U based club here.

now if he didnt lift the seat or cant find his socks, you have a legit reason to hold him back.

Why all the hate about the 2019 commit, cant someone figure there are mature smart players in the 2019 class. on Xanders blog one post states the kid doesn't know what mx+b=y is. Some kids do, most parents don't. Don't label a kid till you know them.

The other lefty at attack who is definitely among one of the best players on this team is being used to plug holes at mid field. I heard he is not overly thrilled with the situation but it shows his versatility and depth as a player.. Poor kid is getting deleted

Knock it off you slug!!

Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2019 Fall 2014/Summer 2015 v3.0 - 07/08/15 08:15 PM
So your complaint is that your son is being a well rounded player? Or your complaint is what? that the other kid that plays lefty attack DELETED is playing the position more? Or are you saying that there is not enough good middies on the team and that forces your kid to play there bc there are holes? Or that this team is not all that it's cracked up to be and you think the grass is greener on the other side? It may be a problem where ever this lefty plays...Maybe it was a problem on teams that this kid played on in the past so this may be a parental issue and not the poor good lefty attackman.

I saw that Edge team play last weekend at Young Guns and they are very, very skilled. The beat the Crabs, then FCA and lost by a goal to a very good Madlax National team. There is some question as to the ages of the players on Edge (that seems to be the case with most teams these days) but they are very good nonetheless. Congratulations to the young man for his commitment.

STOP... that Edge 2019 UVA commit will likely be able to drive himself down to VA this September... he'll be just another normal 20 year old in 4 Septembers.

Let's keep rewarding the holdbacks who intentional game the system.

In full agreement- nothing against the kid personally, but this should not be celebrated one bit- it just feeds the holdback machine and ruins it for the rest that choose to put academics and ethics first.

It only gets worse, currently at the number 1 Showcase out there for 2018's and 2017's. I put the number of holdbacks and now double holdbacks at better than 50% of the kids here for the 2018's. If your son is one of the best kids on his travel team and age legit, he will be up against highly skilled, gigantic, physically mature beasts 1 to 2 years older. It has reached a level of absurdity that is absolutely ridiculous.

No, he went and got himself a handshake with Dom Starsia. There's no scholarship until an NLI is signed.

Verbals are nice and all, but they don't carry nearly as much weight as most people would like to think they do.

The kid is a 2000 birth year so this makes him only 1 year older by LI standards and actually quite regular for a 2019 in the lacrosse world. Could it just be that this Canadian is simply that good and deserving?

Too bad that it doesn't matter what you/we would love to see. The fact is the coaches don't care. They recruit how they want, good luck convincing them otherwise.

Does it really matter? Who cares how old he is, I'll never play my son down or reclassify him for the potential to verbally commit early to a college when he can't even decide what socks to wear.

16 of the kids selected to the 2017 ASG at Maverik Showtime are uncommitted.

I'm sure all those boys will find their way on to D1 rosters if that is their goal. They may even get a better offer or find a better fit for them then they would have 2 years ago.

Committing early is not about fit or what is best for the kid. Bottom line.

He CHEATED a legitimate 2019 out of an opportunity to commit to UVA... Get it now? Using an unfair advantage to garner what he wanted. I would bet that most age legit, top tier 2019's would blow the doors off 99.9% of any age legit 2020, that's how he's cheating. Wait till your 1 year reclass loses his potential spot to the new 2 time reclasses that are emerging. Nothing like doing 9th grade three times...

The only saving grace is most HS athletic associations have rules that state if you turn 19 before the start of the school year you cannot play sports. As a result a 2x reclass would have to sit-out his senior season. Not a great way to prep for a D1 roster spot.

Can I ask a question. Why does everyone always talk about D1 schools? Think about how many D1 schools their are and the amount of kids that are playing from all over the country and Canada. Their are not enough spots for kids at these schools. Your kid needs to be a scholar first and a good lax player second. I really wish you parents will get a grip on yourselves. All of you sound really stupid.

Well said. To add to that, it's a full time job and your experience is really quite different than all the other non athletes there. While my son has his hopes on going D1, like every other kid out there- we are using it as a goal and it motivates him to study and stay at the too of his class. In the end, I'm not surreal a D1 spot is what I really wish for him, but if he makes it he will find out himself. Lots of dedication, sacrifice and time management needed to be a successful student athlete and only the quite mature kids really end up pulling it off successfully. Just like now, academics are the priority and in college we expect the same, as will many of the better academic D1 schools.

While my son has his hopes on going D1, like every other kid out there- we are using it as a goal and it motivates him to study and stay at the too of his class. In the end, I'm not surreal a D1 spot is what I really wish for him, but if he makes it he will find out himself. Lots of dedication, sacrifice and time management needed to be a successful student athlete and only the quite mature kids really end up pulling it off successfully. Just like now, academics are the priority and in college we expect the same, as will many of the better academic D1 schools.


Great points. However, you might be surprised at the level of commitment it takes to be successful at the D3 level. I'll give you some insight:
-Full workout plan, running schedule and lax program for summer
-15 to 18 hrs a week for fall ball
-25 to 30 plus hrs a week in season
-players shovel the field themselves to practice in cold weather, no in-door practice facility.
-minimum one week of missed classes for travel in season, of a 14 week semester
-players GPA actually penalized for missing class, as many classes have strict attendance policy. No coaching or AD influence with the professors, as academics trumps athletics.
-other than mandatory study hall, no academic support. Player must figure it out on his own. As opposed to tutors available for students provided for free by the athletic dept in D1.
-you pay out of pocket for fall ball and spring break trip
So now you know the real deal in D3 at a competitive program from a good academic school.
Kind of sounds like it's more difficult for a kid to be successful at a competitive D3 program, doesn't it?

Actually it might. How can you declare this "spot" wasn't taken from a legite 2019 who is NOT reclassing? There are only so many roster spots, so I would believe this 2018 did indeed take a 2019 rsote spot....unless you have more 2019 reclassing to 2020. And the wheel keeps turning.

Let me take the other side... If it is not an advantage physically & athletically and maturity to re-class down a grade or two then why would someone do it?

Answer... no one would. The fact is that all (and I mean ALL) the re-class laxers seek out that opportunity to look superior on the athletic fields and in the classroom relative to children that are of appropriate age. They get the attention from a travel team coach because that re-class has the (unearned) advantage of size, speed & maturity and possibly academic success over an age appropriate kid. He looks different on the field of play when competing against kids 1 or 2 years younger.

They get the attention from a college for exactly the same reason... that synthetic appearance of superiority.


Now back to the Edge/VA re-class commit. Would he have been able to get the attention from UVA if he stayed in 2018?
Possibly, but he didn't.... and that 2018 offer went to someone else.

By extension, since he got an offer as a 2019 (not a 2018) there is one less likely spot available for an age appropriate 2019 player.

So yes, re-classing = cheating (and cheating another child of an opportunity is offensive).

I can't wait for the day some of the kids that get over looked are able to turn the tables on all this re-classing. Some age appropriate kids will continue to mature while some re-classes will have peaked in freshman year of HS.

Can you cite the NCAA rule that states D1 programs MUST recruit 2019s who were born in 2001 calendar year? You can't. The behavior is offensive yes, but it is not cheating.

The only way this behavior will stop is if the NCAA puts an age cap on athletes. No other rule will prevent D1 coaches from recruiting older athletes.

You are right.. I can't point to a NCAA rule or even a US Lax rule. That is on them. Both orgs are supremely distracted by money and tainted with hypocrisy.


I can tell you that most people have a feel for right and wrong; fair and unfair...despite what is technically not illegal.

When you see someone taking something that doesn't belong to them. When a Big Rottweiller is fighting with a Beagle. Insurance Fraud, Taxes, Mistresses, Steriods, Vaseline on a baseball, deflated footballs, etc.

Most of these things mentioned above evoke a feeling of disgust. some are distasteful and some are illegal. We know it shouldn't happen.

Not speaking for the entire lax community, but my guess is that many (probably most) feel the same way about re-classing. It is just not right and it is not in the spirit of the game.

Unless the game is to beat the system instead of beating your opponent.

If you dummies were paying attention he was playing on a Ottawa Capitals 2018/2019 mixed team playing older teams (2017s) at the Under Armour Shootout when Starsia made the call on him. Kind of puts a crimp in your whining about the 2019 reclass.

He played All Canada Games in the 18 division. Made the 2018 All Star Game. He then played with the Ottawa Capitals 18/19 team that played up a division nd played 2017 teams at UA Shootout. Starsia saw him and liked what he saw. So when Starsia offers him a spot as a 19 at UVA I guess he should have said no? Give your head a shake...every LI [lacrosse] on this site would have done the same thing for their kid. Honestly you clowns need to check the jealousy.

And now it's even easier to do for those in the greater Westchester area (emphasis mine).

From: http://www.houseofsportsny.com/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=32600&ATCLID=210125630

"The House of Sports and Team 91 will also work closely on the lacrosse arm of the House of Sport Preparatory School. This institution will be based at the House of Sports and allows athletes to repeat their 6th, 7th or 8th grade academic year of schooling, while also spending 20+ hours a week on lacrosse training. The Laurel Spring School will provide the academic curriculum, while Team 91 will be responsible for the coaching and progressive lacrosse training program. House of Sports Prep is set to launch in the Fall of 2015, and is currently accepting applications."

He cheats when he plays 2019. If he is such a great player as you suggest, he would not have to play down to make himself look good. Period.

Starsia represents all that is wrong with youth lacrosse. He should be ashamed of him self,talking out his [lacrosse]! Why publish an article, then turn around and do the very thing you claim to advocate against, and to top it off, be the first one? Terrible role model, hope his team continues to struggle!

That thing is going to fail miserably. This isn't Maryland. And they'd have to bus there and back each day. There goes 2-3 hours of training. I don't see long island doing this. But yes you are right. 91 hypocrite dads if this does anything. The only difference is in the saying if you can't beat them join them. They and long island already beats you. Maybe not all the time. But most. 91 has a track record and can back up their talk even if it drives most of us insane. Won't always be like that but for now we have to put up with it.

You knucklehead just won't quit. The kid is playing against 2019 competition.
The kid almost qualifies as a 2017 by age, he is NOT playing up.
Virginia is giving a 2019 roster spot to an older kid, hurts chances of actual 2019
earning a spot. Reclassifying kids for athletic advantage is pathetic and forces others
to follow suit to remain on an equal playing field. No program promotes this
more than Edge Lacrosse. Their teams play down an age division.
All facts, live with it.

Westchester is not Long Island. Check a map. Very few in LI have held a kid back aside for starting kids late in kindergarten which is usually a mid to late Fall birthday which falls in the regular start date for all other states.

I still believe at the end when the kids take the field in college, those on age kids will fair perfectly fine. Giving holdbacks glory might be great for those kids early on, but the struggle to stay on top once all kids level out will certain cause a lot of stress. It's like the child actor that was once the star, but no longer has the glory, very hard to accept.

I also know of a few kids that did so in hockey and they were miserable their senior year as their peers all celebrated and headed out to the big world to play sports and start life in college. The road of a holdback is fun at first, but a lot of hills to continue to climb. Only the very best, strongest and mentally focused kids will stay on top, of course, all the parents that would holdback know that is their kid, and theirs will not crash and burn. Wish their was a crystal ball for them all.

2007 HS Grad with lower level D1 commitment
Re-classed to 2008 via a PG year.
Stole a roster spot at a top Ivy program from a "deserving" 2008 HS Grad
Took a rare Ivy redshirt in 2012 stole a 2013 starting position from another deserving player

This is an example of a 2x re-class player. Many boys on LI have his poster on their wall.

I guess the way it was explained, if true, makes more sense. Just don't understand why the was held back. Seems like he is smart and athletic enough to succeed in his proper age group. (Grad year)

That is precisely why the coaching staffs that play the early recruiting game "correctly" will not fill 10-12 spots with rising freshmen immediately...but will take a few, leaving the last half or more of the class to fill as they go.

I have nothing against a kid doing a PG year, but I do have a problem with teams playing against younger competition with the future promise of a PG year. In my book, big difference.

Nice try. But not even close. To compare a PG year and an injury red shirt year to a kid who repeats 9th grade three times is stretch at best.

Get a life. Kids reclass in many other sports, and I doubt you even noticed. For example, most hockey kids have reclassed and/or done a PG year. On college campuses, those hockey kids are almost always much older than their peers in the same graduation year.

Are you going to cry about your son not getting enough PT in HS because there are Juniors and Seniors who are better? LOL.

Stole a roster spot at a top Ivy program from a "deserving" 2008 HS Grad
Took a rare Ivy redshirt in 2012 stole a 2013 starting position from another deserving player

This is an example of a 2x re-class player. Many boys on LI have his poster on their wall.

Is this cheating?





Nice try. But not even close. To compare a PG year and an injury red shirt year to a kid who repeats 9th grade three times is stretch at best.
If you look at comparative timelines it is not a stretch. Back in 2007 coaches didn't look at middle school aged players. They do now. So a PG in 2007 is very much similar to an 8th grade reclass nowadays. The fact is RP took a sport on the Cornell roster away from a true 2008 grad. This is the same as what is happening today. It is working the system, but within the confines of the system, it may be objectionable, but it is clearly within the rules and thereby is not cheating.

Regarding the poster referring to hockey players, USA Hockey goes by birth year NOT graduation year. You can reclass all you want but USA hockey (travel teams and tournaments) will always refer to your son as an '01 or whatever year he was born in. You can play up but you can never play down.

My son (2018) and I watched some of the highest level 2019 lacrosse that I have witnessed to date this past weekend at the Philly Summer Invitational Showcase. Teams attended from all over the country and proved the sport is spreading everywhere and high level lacrosse is too.

Team 91 and Express North battled to a 11-8 win for Team 91. If Express North had won just a few faceoffs, who knows the outcome. Bottomline, the game was played with intensity and skill even after playing since Saturday in high heat. Kudos to all the boys.

They are the top 2 teams on Long Island both well coached and great players across the board.

Its always a battle when they meet, great lacrosse to watch.

Congrats 91 !!

We watched the 2019 final after the intense 2018 final concluded. I too am amazed at the level of competition in the 2018 and 2019 grad years. The final four teams in 2018 grad year have so many great players, fun to watch. The 2019 final with the Team 91 and LI Express North was a war. Both teams played their hearts out and never stopped running. I particularly enjoyed watching some of the old school middies who played both ends of the field. I've grown tired of specialist middies that run on and off the field more than they do during game play. Kudos to the coaches who are encouraging kids to play the "right" way.

My 2018 son went Jake Reed this year. He is an early 2000 birthday. Watching the games it was certainly evident that the ones standing out consistently were physically older, not just bigger. A kid who played on one of his teams last year is a March 1999. He shows up at the 2019 Jake Reed this year. He will be a 17 yr old freshman this spring. So there you have it a 16 yr old middy taking FO's against a 14 yr olds at Jake Reed. That is what is going on. There are some man child 2000 birth year 2018's for sure and they are getting committed. But they are truly the exception in the first round of 2018 recruiting. The whole thing is really disappointing and we did not realize just how widespread re-classing was. Would we PG to go to an IVY school, probably but those spots will be long gone by then.

The LI Express North program continues to develop into a powerhouse. The 2019 team beat the Crabs, Dukes, Club Blue, Leading Edge and lost to Madlax Capital AAA in the final at the Young Guns Shootout on the Marlyand campus last weekend. Great first season.

Rhetorical question...

With all the early tryouts coming in August and conflicting with football two a days & soccer school tryouts, have the major programs given up on the ideas of two sport athletes?

What are players expected to do?

I would love to know the DOB of these kids. Wish IL would have detailed that. I know crush played up but why list them as Fr. Saw some kids listed as Soph playing in the 2019? if you are not a Soph or Jr in HS why not put their DOB.

Also noticed that there are a few kids from Crush listed as St. Anthony's HS. Are they entering St Anthony's as 9th graders in Sept or is there an 8th grade middle school called St Anthony. Also notice a kid at Iona Prep HS from Crush. Also you should assume all the Sweetlax kids with offers are holdbacks/ older (15 years old).

I get the Crush kids putting the High School of their choice. Many 2019's did that LY as well. As far as Iona I believe they have an Elementary School (Like LI's Kellenberg). I agree that the Sweet Lax kids are older and I am okay with playing against that JUST TELL US WHAT WE ARE IN FOR.

Why the wth?

I am sure there wasn't an 8th grade choice hence the reason they are all listed as Freshmen.

The selected schools are probably the HS those boys would "like" to attend. I am sure St. Anthony's or Iona would not have an issue with that, I would think they or any other school would celebrate the fact these boys (or any prospective student) would put them down as their HS.

If you have a problem with that then you have other issues. But I guess Sometimes you can't speak rationally to an irrational mind.

Let's calm down . I don't think anyone including Crush thought they would beat or even make it a game vs Sweetlax. They have several holdbacks and several D1 commits. Please leave Crush off this thread. They are 2020. It's people like you that help fill their heads with praise . Excellent team but not a 2019.

How many more no Final Four years does Breschi have? Two, three, four? That isn't nearly enough for a 2017, 2018 or 2019 family to bank on it. Those are desired schools and if a kid is good enough to be recruited by them, I am sure they will have other opportunities, but it smells like there will be turnover in Charlottesville and a risk of it in Chapel Hill.

Very good points. Its a risk no matter where you commit when done this early. Look at Penn St. new coach took a fresh look at all the outstanding commits. Not all were honored, in both directions

Did 91 and Edge ever play? 91 and Edge are probably tied at the top, then Crabs, then everyone else and that includes Madlax, HHH, Laxachusetts, FCA, Express and Express North. Most of those teams won and lost to each other this season. Don't start with the Madlax National team nonsense. I am talking about the DC Madlax team.

I would disagree with the list when you consider both Express teams beat Madlax, Crabs and HHH in the last two major tournaments. This list might have been accurate last Fall, no longer. Team 91's FOGO makes all the difference and EDGE 2019 is in fact a 2018 team.

Would generally agree with the list - 91 and Madlax at top, everybody else is pretty much a jump ball...any given Sunday...

Don't put Madlax at the top. 91 and Edge are the best teams.

Edge 2016s are the best 2019 team.

I would disagree with the list when you consider both Express teams beat Madlax, Crabs and HHH in the last two major tournaments. This list might have been accurate last Fall, no longer. Team 91's FOGO makes all the difference and EDGE 2019 is in fact a 2018 team.


Express never beat Madlax. Madlax beat North and Express in Univ of Md. North twice and also beat them at Platinum Cup and in the Spring.

Madlax beat Edge at Crabs Young Guns. Madlax and Team 91 at top, then Edge, HHH and Express North as Top 5.

How can you include Edge 2019 on a 2019 list? They are ALL at least 2018 grad year. Not bashing their program practices, but they are not a 2019 team.

Madlax lost to FCA and Crabs twice this year. 91 (even though FCA beat them once) was consistently the best team. I would love to see them play Edge.

FCA played two Express teams and the Cannons at a play day at Landon this spring. One was the regular express team and FCA lost in OT and the other was the North (Westchester) team and FCA won that game. Are there more Express 2019 teams?

Relax we are not chest pumping. We know competition was weak. Come watch us play and you would agree that this team is very talented. If that team had full time coaches and those boys left their travel teams we would be a very good team. We could give the best teams a run for their money. If anyone would pull kids from the top teams on Long Island of course anyone can pull off a real strong team. All those parents on lax army have always been friendly with each other and those boys like playing together. For a team that doesn't practice their is very good chemistry amongst these boys. That's very rare.

We played lax army and those boys did not shove it in our kids faces. They gave one fist pump and walked back to their positions. And parents weren't going crazy over their kids scoring. They could have scored 20 goals against us and you could tell they hung back doing the right thing.

I couldn't agree more. A little full of yourself. Answer this why would people take their kids out of a good organization to play with a bunch of kids cause they like them? You would have nothing to offer my son when it comes time to get in touch with college coaches down the line. There's a parent trying to run the operation. It's not PAL. This guy must be from that revolution team. They have parents running the organization as well so I'm told. People will start to leave that organization cause they have no resources. They have some good players going to waste. Good for the team that beat B bracket teams.

The All Grays are a B team? That's news to me. Over the past two years this team has beaten the Outlaws "A" team, Legacy Commandos, All Grays and others from out of state, and only lost to Team L.I. at the IMG Nationals. If you think they wanted to play against weak competition you are surely mistaken. They are what they are and have had some quality coaching over the years. Also, you are talking from a position of ignorance with team Revolution as you really don't know what "resources" the program has and has available to it. Maybe someone putting down other programs in order to protect heir own little fifedoom?

everyone is crazy, if you look at most of the travel programs, the directors all have kids on one of their teams. None of the parents are coaching unlike 91 who has parents on their top teams coaching their own kids.

Don't knock a team that has been growing and trying to do the right thing. they have excellent coaches and have a solid plan in place for assisting the boys with recruiting

Couple of people sound real bitter about lax army. From what I was told it is a bunch of boys who have played together in the past and still like playing together. So a couple of fathers put team together to do some offseason tournaments. What's the big deal?

Yea right. Parents run the team. They tell them who they want. It's not the coaches decision. Thats difference. You guys got nothing. Word has it they take kids from other teams to come play for them even if that means taking time away from kids that have been on the team. That's horrible.

I know many other "put together" teams that could just as good. Say what you want but if many players left their travel programs they could be on stronger teams.

Nice try, there are no holdbacks or kids playing down on this team. almost all of these boys have been playing together for many years.

don't worry, lax army is not looking to recruit your child. as you told us we don't have much to offer except good kids, solid lacrosse and a great group of parents.

please share with us who is older that was there.

Lax army is nothing but a bunch of kids getting together to play lacrosse as they have over the years. This was the only tournament around they could play in. If they knew some of the competition was not going to be on par with them they would not have played . Only All Greys were a good team the rest for the most part were b and c level teams. Their is no organization starting called Lax Army trying to get these kids to play for them. No agenda. Never has never will be one.

You don't even care if you hurt the kids feelings on your own team. Very nice. You guys sens out some message to the kids. You GOT nerve. That's right GOT nerve. Is it the truth or is someone playing games with me. Don't trt to put revolution in the same sentence as 91,fl$ or exrpess. I'm not knocking the kids. As an organization is what I'm talking about.

Who's feelings were hurt..no one . That's right..They have only had kids that have played with them in the past and no one has complained..Never said they were as good as 91 orange or express .but they can compete with the other top a teams . Kids have never ever complained because the roster does not add kids just to fill it out and bring the number to 23 or 24. So no one is playing games or is trying to be sneaky or shady or non transparent . Just not sure where you are coming from on this???try again to come up with something

it is absolutely a 2019 team. As a matter of fact they are u14 according to U.S. Lacrosse rules if I'm not mistaken. Regardless it's too bad that hearsay and false accusations are allowed to be posted on this forum. Provide the moderators with your evidence and have them reach out to the Lax Army to verify, otherwise just give it up.

A good amount of revolution kids play for that lax army team. Most of the boys came from the old true blue A team. Now some of those kids play express A and 91 orange. And some come from fl$ and legacy. Boys and parents have always had good relationships and thats how you get lax army. So we have no agenda of taking and recruiting kids.

I would agree. Lax army is a 2019 team. My son played their and I can tell you for a fact that it is just a team where kids go to play after the season. It's a good experience for the kids. Most if not all have been together for a while. I mean years. I think this has nothing to do with this team. Somebody kind of twisted things it looks like. It can't be this team that I'm sure of. Great kids and parents. I would let my kids play their. It's legit and there has never been any funny stuff going on. Lets go back and read this over. When I was told this about lax army I thought that can't be right. The issue has to be somewhere else. Lets not bash a team that is doing the right thing for the kids and not doing stupid stuff that travel teams do. Lax army is being dragged into this so lets not make a comment about a team that's doing all the right things and that's putting thought into the kids future. Please read back.

I think it's about one of the travel teams. Could be revolution that this person is talking about. Someone mentioned that there are alot of kids from that revolution team. Also 91, express and fl$ were mentioned. Somebody is screwing things up by saying lax army. I knew it can't be lax army. If you want to stir the pot at least get it right. Lax army is alot of fun for the kids and parents as well. Good people and good lacrosse. Have fun boys.

you my friend are a [lacrosse]. nobody every wanted to play b teams and you are just trying to start [lacrosse]. well it seems everyone that is apart of the team has no problem and most of the people who know the kids have no problem.

stay on your b team and shut the [lacrosse] up

also, not one parent jumped up and celebrated after any goals or after they won the finals. the parents and players all have respect and understood the situation and handled themselves perfectly.

please let us know what team you are from and we will make sure we get you a good b or c team to come and have a play date with

I really hate lacrosse parents, they all think they are entitled to comment on anything that they don't agree with regardless of how little merit there is with their statements

BTW, most of us know exactly who you are and it will be interesting next time we meet. especially since you always seem to kiss our asses to see if your son can play with us

I guess there were only B teams down at IMG when they went to the championship. You my friend are an angry man who should just enjoy watching your son play

It's bad when coaches put teams in an open bracket which doesn't specify A or B. It's not fair to those kids trying to compete with a higher level of lacrosse then what they can play. Hopefully the coaches and directors of these teams only put their kids in B brackets where they can at least compete in games. It's tough with PAL pretty much being finished but hopefully they will learn from this and can consider it a lesson learned by the coaches. They need to know not to take a chance and play in tournaments like this. I'm sure it didn't help to end the season on that note

No fun winning games against to be honest non competitive teams . No one wins believe me. I didn't see anyone grinning, more so parents were disappointed in the competition they were hoping for more .. Can only blame the tournament directors for not separating A and B brackets

When there isn't enough teams I'm sure its hard to split up into A and B brackets. My kid plays against whoever is in front of him and if that team is A or B he still tries the best he can. That's all I can ask for.

Problem was some of these teams quit in the first 15 -20 min and even one father left that early as well . What lesson is that teaching his son, but it's what I expected after seeing how he was acting.

Get off the lax army crap. I couldn't believe that people were bashing lax army when my friend just told me. My boys played with this team in the past and to be honest with you they like the kids on the team. You can't beat up on a team that plays a couple of tournaments a year. Really. You need to complain to the directors. If a team pays to enter the tournament and the talent level is not what they thought it would be how can you blame them. It's a good group of kids that love to play lax. In the end it can be a lesson for kids playing up. I really don't care who wins because it means nothing.

Lax Army stated that thy were an A team. The directors are the ones seeding the tournament and if there were issues I think they have the responsibility to notify the teams that may be in question. The product is the tournament and making it the best it can be is the directors goal. Lax Army would've played up if that was what was necessary.
