I have heard that this is the case. Their JV team must be lights out having committed kids play on the JV. I have known some freaks of nature that were in 10th grade I could not imagine them playing JV as 10th grade especially football.

I think there have been 2 sophomores in the last 10 years who got called up to play on varsity. Never a freshman. And everyone knows that going in. Moran's 500 wins and who knows how many D-1 players that have played for him are testament to a system that seems to work pretty well. May not be for everyone and if that is the case, don't have your kid take the test to get in.

All while my son has been lighting it up on varsity since freshman year for a great public school program, and I mean great athletically as well as academically. He will go to a top 20 school with enough AP credits to enter with sophomore standing. And he has the excitement and experience of 4 years of varsity. Is there really even a debate?

It's a bunch of BS and needs to change. There's no reason why it has to be such a rigid system with no flexibility. Paying customers (parents) need to unite and rise up to storm the fortress. We need regime change! It's such a happy go lucky place with free will in so many other ways and so it should be with lax as well.

Not trash talking, just stating facts. And my son is certainly not the only one. Go to WM,Syosset, SE,GC,etc, you will find many similar stories. If you are happy at Cham, that's great. Just suggesting many publics offer the kids a better overall experience. Oh,and there are girls!

Good luck with the overthrow. You will find out quickly that attending is a privilege and its not about your "lax rights". It's about a solid catholic education.

Yes. All of that may not prevent your kid from behaving like you some day.!

And we would love to hear what "top" school your son has been "lightening it up " on as a freshman. I don't remember seeing that happen anywhere??

biggest problem with Chaminade lacrosse is not the discrimination against underclassmen it is the fact that they only let in Catholic's - makes no sense to me, team could be so much better with a some Protestants maybe a Jewish kid or two and how about an Atheist?

Clearly my post struck a nerve. You can check past stats and see that many freshman and sophs were big contributors to their varsity squads. Those are facts, not opinions. If you check commitment lists , you can also confirm many public HSs are sending a good amount of their lax players to top schools. This is not an opinion either. Like I said ,it's great if you are happy with the program Chaminade has to offer. I was just offering that the overall experience for some kids may be better at the publics. No need to attack me or my son. Wishing all the boys a great season whether they play varsity or freshman team.

Why are you so mad? Is it because you are paying 7-10,000, for what you could be getting for free? Or is it because your kid is playing for a freshman team that nobody cares about? Ha!

Why is that the only answer that parents and student have to be like sheep and just be quiet? The school is funded by parents and alumni and the people managing it should have to answer to the paying customers. That's how it should work and will work if we get enough people to speak out and grab control of the situation.

Times they are a changin' in the lax world and so too should this ridiculous "system" at Chaminade. Do all Catholic schools like Kellenberg, Holy Trinity etc. have the same ridiculousness?

Most "Old School" folks like it the way it is. "Individuals", need not apply. Besides, what you're describing, sounds like Barry's America.No thanks.

Because you chose to go to a program that has a history and tradition of doing things a certain way, but you feel it needs to change for you. No one is saying change is bad but Chaminade has established itself as an institution where faith, education and athletics are its priority and prerogative. If you don't like the way they do it then why did you go there. Maybe you should find an institution that will change a tradition just for you.

You don't have to go there. You make a decision to attend. If you dont like the rules , go somewhere else. The privileged parents who influence their public schools , coaches and administrators find this frustrating. It's an accomplishment and privilege to attend. The people who attend aren't "customers' they are part of a community, and willing pay tuition in order to provide this experience for their kids. Go try and control your pal , club team or some other cause you can bully and influence.

Thinking as an individual is what made this country great. The Chaminade way is suffocating and maybe explains why a small town team like Yorktown crushes them every year. Fear, intimidation and rigidity is a relic of the 50's. Enjoy.

It's abundantly clear the jealousy is yours. You wouldn't have to come on the Chaminade thread if that was not the case. There really is no debate on that one.

Most "Old School" folks like it the way it is. "Individuals", need not apply. Besides, what you're describing, sounds like Barry's America.No thanks.


Thinking as an individual is what made this country great. The Chaminade way is suffocating and maybe explains why a small town team like Yorktown crushes them every year. Fear, intimidation and rigidity is a relic of the 50's. Enjoy.


Thank you Mr Keating. You may leave now…...

Nobody scorned, you just keep hurling insults. Maybe you know Ive be making some valid points such as:

1)Kids can get an excellent education at a public HS
2)Good lacrosse players get the experience and exciment of playing 4 years of varsity at publics.
3)Many lacrosse players from public scools are/will play at top 20 schools.
4) Public education is free.

I guess we can just agree to disagree. Good luck to you and your son. Stop being so angry. It's a free world and everyone can make the decision that is best suited for their family. I just shared my experience.

Ok, I feel the need to step in here and say that Public school education is far from free. An average of 60% of your local taxes goes to the school district, so if you're paying $10,000.00 a year in taxes your really paying $6,000.00 for your "free" education.

I agree, in the right district you can get a great education. However, there is a difference in behavior in the classrooms. In public school, kids are frequently distracted by kids that don't have the discipline that you will see in a Chaminade classroom. If there is a behavior problem, it is easily handled, whereas in public school, it can escalate and disrupt learning over a long period of time.

The alumni connections are also a huge plus. That said, I have one son that chose public school and one chose private. Both have great academics at their fingertips. Different kids thrive in different environments.

Btw no one attacked your son. You brought him into this by bragging about how hes been lighting up the field since ninth grade on varsity and proceeding to recite his resume. Lets not play the victim. Chaminade is not for everyone. Your attitude toward it however makes me wonder why you have to be so defensive. There was no reason for you to chime in except for your need to brag. No one ever says why would you send your kid there. It is old school. Thank God. There is accountability. Something seriously lacking in society as a whole.

Bottom line is- both places- public and private can show you a list of kids with top resumes. I think for some, tradition, religion, discipline, great alumni network, and strong sports across the board is enough to make a family think a few grand for a these added experiences is worth while. Doesn't make one better or worse, just different experiences.

Personally, I like the 3 different lax teams the way Chaminade has it set up. I think it is important to bond with your classmates to make a stronger Varsity club as you will have played together as a unit for longer period of time. It's not hurting them, so why mess with it? Just my opinion.

It's not hurting them? They have more lax talent in grades 9-12 than one could even imagine. Yet somehow, they lose games to public school teams? Should never be a close game against a public, ever. Maybe if they just played the best kids, regardless of grade, they'd win more. Oh wait, they're not about winning now, that's right.

Everybody knows that Chaminade recruits. But, in this age of early college recruiting, it has become a much tougher sell to convince a kid to "wait his turn" and be buried in the Chaminade "system" for two years - TICK TOC, TICK TOC while his buddies back home are moved up to varsity. No doubt the "system" will have to change if they care at all about attracting the best lax talent possible.

Re: CHAMINADE Lacrosse. Stories and news. - 03/22/15 03:31 PM

I often hear about how great the academics are at Chaminade. Im just curious do they have a higher ratio of students getting into Ivy League schools as compared to the better public schools such as Jericho,Roslyn and any others ? I had a neighbor graduate from Chaminade and went on the The University of Delaware I think the same could have been achieved at many public schools. I guess I will have to stand by and see about the " conections ". Thanks

Yes I am sure the Chaminade alumni at big law firms and the Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sacks really care about lacrosse. If lacrosse was these families #1 priority, they would be at St Anthony's! Lax will help these kids into Princeton and Duke they really don't care about being recruited early to CW Post

We are all fortunate we live in an area where families have choices. Chaminade is not for everybody and if you choose to send your son elsewhere no need to come on here and bash the school. Chaminade has been doing its thing for 85 years and has a good recipe for success which goes far, far beyond just lacrosse. I can promise you that. The beauty of the school is that there is something for every type of kid. The lacrosse wins get celebrated the same as those from the bowling team or speech and debate. That said, Chaminade does not have a monopoly on success. Of course you can be as successful or more out of a public school. Of course, there are public school athletic programs that rival Chaminade's. Oh and of course the Ivy League isn't exactly rolling out the red carpet for applicants from a conservative all boys Catholic school. Is any of this really a surprise? Make whatever choice you want to make, but drop the Chaminade hating......People who are spewing that stuff on here don't know the first thing about the school.

This thread reminds of the conversations that were brought upon my wife I and when we decided to enroll our children in private school. As in this thread, the questions and comments received were critical and reflected insecurity and a justification from those who chose public.

The Catholics are not the end-all-be-all by any stretch of the imagination. In fact, it can be argued that in most school districts, the resources available to the students is much greater.

The decision of where to send your child is personal to the family. It's in poor taste for Chaminade parents to get on a forum and boast about the superiority of their school, in the same way as it is for people to be so critical of Chaminade. It's a great thing for us to all have choices where we live.

For the poster who asked how many Chaminade kids get into the ivy's, that's truly an ignorant question. If you haven't learned by now how the Ivy admissions quota has turned away from white, male, catholic, suburban, middle to upper class, private school kids, then you need to do some more research.

If the Pope can demonstrate new flexibilities so can Chaminade lax. I'll allow Chaminade to benefit from my son's lacrosse skills but only under conditions that are acceptable to me.

yes, if you need resources, public is definitely the way to go. you basically just said that all of our white boys aren't getting into ivy league anyway because of discrimination so why bother with a private education. that's some rationale you've got going on there. again, no one had to remotely boast until the lighting it up kid's dad interjected his snide remark.

Public schools can achieve the same especially if you are North of the LIE but no one will ever say you decreased your son's chances of Ivy by going to Chaminade. It's a hard case to make otherwise.

Plenty of reasons for a family to choose private beyond the chance at an Ivy admission. Success can be achieved indefinitely without an Ivy education and Ivy doesn't guarantee success. Plenty of great schools otherwise. I feel sorry for any student or parent who puts their only hope for success on an Ivy League education.

Chaminade is catholic school, not a private school. one admission criteria: take a relatively easy test, if you pass, you get in, private schools have a real application process, no standardized test to pass and are exclusive.

Taking 400 of about 2000 applicants is pretty selective. I guess your public school has a better vetting process ?

Just because a kid applies, does not mean they actually want to go there. Some may just want to see if they are accepted,others will decide to go to more prestigious schools. Kind of like college apps

yes, if you need resources, public is definitely the way to go. you basically just said that all of our white boys aren't getting into ivy league anyway because of discrimination so why bother with a private education. that's some rationale you've got going on there. again, no one had to remotely boast until the lighting it up kid's dad interjected his snide remark.


Plenty of reasons for a family to choose private beyond the chance at an Ivy admission. Success can be achieved indefinitely without an Ivy education and Ivy doesn't guarantee success. Plenty of great schools otherwise. I feel sorry for any student or parent who puts their only hope for success on an Ivy League education.


Chaminade is catholic school, not a private school. one admission criteria: take a relatively easy test, if you pass, you get in, private schools have a real application process, no standardized test to pass and are exclusive.


The amount of misinformation and ignorance already on this thread is pretty staggering. The test is not "pass/fail" for starters.....I would explain further but I am not sure you have a legitimate interest in understanding how it actually works. Your post is emblematic of many on here in that it just shows a total lack of knowledge about the school.

I will take a high quality education combined with catholic ideals/education any day of the week vs public school left wing whinning teachers who are more worried about common core and being evaluated than teaching.

Wrong. Catholic schools are private schools. The exclusivity of a school is an altogether different conversation.

That test is not relatively easy for the many kids who don't make the cut


Taking 400 of about 2000 applicants is pretty selective. I guess your public school has a better vetting process ?


they take a lot more than 400, not all that get in go idiot

At least public teachers are certified. You don't know what you are getting at private schools. Although I'm sure there are some fine educators there, they can't attract the best due to the low salaries. More often it's the teachers who can't find/keep a job at a public.

Or teachers who went to the schools and want to give back and work there. Your "certified" teachers answer to the unions and are not held to a higher standard. Good luck once tenured. Your perception on money is off base. These are not catholic grammar school salaries. Certainly not public school money. I know its unexplainable to someone like yourself that people do things that are not strictly financial driven. That is the part of the culture and experience, you will never get. It is certainly not for everyone, but it is unreasonable to say the education or educators are sub par.

That's contradictory to the pompous statements made by several on here suggesting going to chaminade will get their kid a better paying job, which will lead to a happier life. I guess that the low paid teachers must got there because they didn't go to a school like chaminade, because if we follow your logic, they would be working at Jericho. Cerification ensures that the teacher is competent in the subject they teach. Kind of like when you hire a lawyer,you want to know they passed the bar. Best salaries attract best employees, in general. Kind of like parents hoping their kid gets into the best possible college they can, which is also in general.

I don't understand the haters on this thread. If you don't like Chaminade for being Catholic, or only admitting Catholics. don't send your son. if you don't like the boys only or the only upperclassmen play varsity, or the cost of the school, or any other facet of the school don't send your son. Everyone knows the basic rules to Chaminade, so if you don't agree than send your kid to your public school or to St.A ,K-berg, or S.J.B. I grew up in Mineola right across the street from Cham. and every day we would see bus loads of kids from all over going their, not to mention the dozens of kids that would walk to the train station to go either to the city or out east because there school would not bus them, so believe me if you don't like it there is no shortage of people to take a spot.

I think the issue is changing the rules to reflect the changing lacrosse landscape when it comes to lacrosse. Not playing varsity until 11th grade was fine 10 years ago but not fine now. These "rules" should change to reflect the new realities.

I believe they have been in the top 10 nationally for quite a while. Their recipe for success has been in place for a long, long time. So to all of you that think they know better, stay in Baldwin HS, or Island Trees or wherever it is you come from. Besides, It's about the superior education.

They are top 10 team in country. You think they need to play your freshman or soph??? Go to public school or another private school if so hung up on playing varsity.

It can be argued that playing varsity as a freshman or sophomore means LESS today than ten years ago. There are many more opportunities today to be recruited, given the showcases and prospect days. Most college coaches won't even come to a high school game unless a championship is involved. Sure, it's great for the resume to list "varsity as a freshman", but unless you live in a town with a dominant program it doesn't matter. As well, are coaches clueless as to the cultures at schools that don't move underclassmen to varsity? Don't think so. Bottom line, there's no reason for the Catholics to change.

I think the issue is changing the rules to reflect the changing lacrosse landscape when it comes to lacrosse. Not playing varsity until 11th grade was fine 10 years ago but not fine now. These "rules" should change to reflect the new realities.


They are top 10 team in country. You think they need to play your freshman or soph??? Go to public school or another private school if so hung up on playing varsity.


Who's ranking are you referring to? Because I never Saw Chaminade in top 10. In fact, some LI publics are ranked ahead of them, maybe they should take advantage of the young talent before they slip even more!

The world does not revolve around Lacrosse.
Especially at Chaminade!

We'll see how good these rankings are after this weekends game with WM who aren't even ranked. If Chaminade can win that one with a decent margin, then I'll believe they are legitimacy deserving such a high ranking.

Wrong again. The chaminade JV team would beat half the varsity teams on Long island and give the next 25% an even matchup. only the top 25% of teams on Long Island would consistently beat the Chammy JV. So play varsity all you want but what good is it when you lose to the Chammy JV.

Still, no answer to the question of what harm would it do to change? What are they afraid of? I bet now with all this chatter, they are thinking harder than ever about it and will eventually bend to the pressure. That's how it works at these schools. C'mon coach, give it a shot!

It's already been proven wrong and that lists like this mean nothing at beginning of a new season...... Syosset beat Chaminade easily and made them look like a JVB team in their scrimmage last week and Syosset also beat Garden City with no problem a week after that. So a list like this makes no sense that those teams are in top 20 and a team like Syosset didn't even make top 25. These lists are a joke . I'm sure St. Anthony's agrees considering their ranking below Chaminade . Btw heard Syosset beat CSH today 11-4

Cham. doesn't have to change with the landscape, even with the rules that are in place now they have easily 200 kids willing to try out. It's not your public school with over bearing parents pressuring the coach to take Johnny Lax's little brother too. If you don't like the rules at Cham step aside, there are 20 more, more than willing, to take that spot.They don't need your "super star" 9th grader, so send him back to where he came from.

That's because sophomores don't contribute at chaminade. At other schools they are valued for their talent and and big contributors to their teams. A Shame!

I think the issue is changing the rules to reflect the changing lacrosse landscape when it comes to lacrosse. Not playing varsity until 11th grade was fine 10 years ago but not fine now. These "rules" should change to reflect the new realities.


It can be argued that playing varsity as a freshman or sophomore means LESS today than ten years ago. There are many more opportunities today to be recruited, given the showcases and prospect days. Most college coaches won't even come to a high school game unless a championship is involved. Sure, it's great for the resume to list "varsity as a freshman", but unless you live in a town with a dominant program it doesn't matter. As well, are coaches clueless as to the cultures at schools that don't move underclassmen to varsity? Don't think so. Bottom line, there's no reason for the Catholics to change.
Cham. doesn't have to change with the landscape, even with the rules that are in place now they have easily 200 kids willing to try out. It's not your public school with over bearing parents pressuring the coach to take Johnny Lax's little brother too. If you don't like the rules at Cham step aside, there are 20 more, more than willing, to take that spot.They don't need your "super star" 9th grader, so send him back to where he came from.


Nobody is suggesting that they have to change, the question being raised is should they change. It sounds like they will, now it's just a matter of when.

We'll see how good these rankings are after this weekends game with WM who aren't even ranked. If Chaminade can win that one with a decent margin, then I'll believe they are legitimacy deserving such a high ranking.


Well , I'm sure they will do their best to convince you??


Right ... And it is important to know that many of the teams on this list will be playing Cham and St. Ants.

Why .... Because they are the best competition consistently.
Not only will Flyers play WM, but also St. A (2x), Delby, Pequa, Y-town, and Greenwich.
Add to that WI, Fairfield Prep.

StA has Cham, delby, Darien, haverford, and many other premier teams too.

No public has as tough a schedule.

And by the way over the past 5 years Cham has been the second most consistently superior program in the nation (second only to Haver Ford). Based on lax power final rankings. Fact !!!
...so really no need to "change" because some joe the plumber or car sales guy or stock broker or insurance guy says so.

So if they aren't nunber 1 in the country they should play freshman? That's the answer. If unhappy go somewhere else.

It's already been proven wrong and that lists like this mean nothing at beginning of a new season...... Syosset beat Chaminade easily and made them look like a JVB team in their scrimmage last week and Syosset also beat Garden City with no problem a week after that. So a list like this makes no sense that those teams are in top 20 and a team like Syosset didn't even make top 25. These lists are a joke . I'm sure St. Anthony's agrees considering their ranking below Chaminade . Btw heard Syosset beat CSH today 11-4

Chaminade beat St Anthonys in championship last year. Why surprised ranked lower? And CSH is not even in conversation. Not sure what point is there

Oh yes. It was a brilliant and thought provoking article.

It's hard to understand the obsession with the lacrosse culture at the Catholics. It borders on envy, really. Schools only move underclass players up if needed. Many publics don't have the depth at the junior and senior level, so they draw deeper. Not to mention the cronyism that occurs in town athletics.

High level players at the Catholics are having no problem getting recruited, so that point is moot.

Kicking up the crap for crap's sake is just exposing the ignorance of those posters here. Chime on if that's who you are.

Wrong again. The chaminade JV team would beat half the varsity teams on Long island and give the next 25% an even matchup. only the top 25% of teams on Long Island would consistently beat the Chammy JV. So play varsity all you want but what good is it when you lose to the Chammy JV.


Still, no answer to the question of what harm would it do to change? What are they afraid of? I bet now with all this chatter, they are thinking harder than ever about it and will eventually bend to the pressure. That's how it works at these schools. C'mon coach, give it a shot!


The bs on this website is not even on their radar by any stretch of the imagination. Lets just move on, kids get cut from freshman teams every year and are playing varsity in public the next season, if your looking to build a sports resume go public

When are you people going to get it? If Lacrosse is your families #1 priority and you want to play as an 8th or 9th grader, Chaminade is not for you PERIOD. Although Chaminade is very good in many sports, families are choosing Chaminade for the education and other offerings. Stay in publics that where you belong with this priority set.

Brilliant !!!!! Guess you didnt read the article since it was a public school breakdown.

Again I will state.......The JV teams from St A and Chaminade would beat 50% of the Varsity teams in nassau and Suffolk. The only teams beating those JV's are the top 25% of all teams on Long Island. Oh yea...go to catholic school JV chamiopnship.....then you will see 20+ college coaches watching. Please stay at publics....pad your stats....we are just fine at the catholics and playing at the next level.

The Brothers who run Chaminade also run Kellenberg, so not much of a difference there.


The Brothers? Express runs!


Please enlighten us as to how Express sets policy at Chaminade and Kellenberg.


50 kids were cut from Freshman team. Were any of the Express A, B or C players cut?

So using your logic, if they had been allowed to play varsity as Freshman and Sophomores they would have thrived as Juniors and Seniors but since they are not allowed to move up and are forced to work on their games for two years they are somehow never going to see the field as juniors and Seniors? seriously?

I have seen some of these players playing in the summer too. Maybe they see better competition in the 40 games they play then, then the weak public school schedules they play.

I think the issue is changing the rules to reflect the changing lacrosse landscape when it comes to lacrosse. Not playing varsity until 11th grade was fine 10 years ago but not fine now. These "rules" should change to reflect the new realities.


It can be argued that playing varsity as a freshman or sophomore means LESS today than ten years ago. There are many more opportunities today to be recruited, given the showcases and prospect days. Most college coaches won't even come to a high school game unless a championship is involved. Sure, it's great for the resume to list "varsity as a freshman", but unless you live in a town with a dominant program it doesn't matter. As well, are coaches clueless as to the cultures at schools that don't move underclassmen to varsity? Don't think so. Bottom line, there's no reason for the Catholics to change.
Cham. doesn't have to change with the landscape, even with the rules that are in place now they have easily 200 kids willing to try out. It's not your public school with over bearing parents pressuring the coach to take Johnny Lax's little brother too. If you don't like the rules at Cham step aside, there are 20 more, more than willing, to take that spot.They don't need your "super star" 9th grader, so send him back to where he came from.


Then why are some publics ranked above them???


Well , The Flyer JV team certainly didn't need any 9th graders to beat that bunch today.

This statement is getting old, not to mention it's just foolish.

Why shouldn't they ever lose to a public? Why do some here degrade competitive public programs in this way?

As we all know, there are some towns where the game is nurtured from a very young age. The "better" athletes gravitate to lacrosse and play together for their entire childhood. Not only do they play PAL together, but they might also have a travel town team. Some may play on different club teams, but they always come back together for town when needed. By the time these players enter middle school, the high school team is already selected and the players are well indoctrinated in the style of play and culture of the high school team before they even get there. Massapequa fits this mold perfectly.

There are 20,000 plus kids living in Massapequa. If the lacrosse machine there plays its cards right it should remain competitive for many years to come.

It is a dumb argument. In NJ, two of the best teams of the last few years - Delbarton and Summit - beat each other up each year with each team having won games vs. the other in the past few years. We hear the same argument in NJ, but there is no reason the best publics in LI or NJ can't beat the best privates on a given day, or vice versa.

Sadly that run is over for some grades in Massapequa,because the coach is a jealous type, and always wants is son to be the best, he chased away the better kids, very sad.

Re: CHAMINADE Lacrosse. Stories and news. - 03/26/15 05:14 PM

Was at game no kid on either team. Thought it was a good game. Mass came out fast jumped all over them and got some help from refs but looked good. Took a while for Chaminade to wake up. Breaking it down by half I think Chaminade out scored them second half. Someone said Chaminade had only 5 kids that played yesterday with real Varsity experience. If true they will be very good by years end. Who else is on Mass schedule that is worth talking about ??
Can someone explain to me what happened to the Mass player who got carried off ?? Did he knock himself out hitting himself in the head. I watched it on the computer when I got home and no one else touched him.

Senseless post and kind of weird. No kid on either team and you went to the game and then watched it on the computer? Some help from the refs? So was it a tie if Chaminade scored more goals in the second half? 5 Chami kids with Varisity exeperience? Come on, get real.

Weird, Sounds to me like he may have been there watching a particular player. Recruiter from somehwhere. Player Must have been on Mass because all of the Chaminade kids are committed. Hopefully it is a school with lots of pictures in their text books.

Why is it weird? Maybe he is scouting for his own son, or team. Lots of parents and coaches do it. I know my son's coach was out scouting another team yesterday. And as for the all chaminade kids are committed comment. If I was the coach who committed some of them, I'd be shaking my head. The difference makers were on the other team.

You know what is so sad here watching grown men living vicariously through their sons sports. Why is it so hard to believe and understand its not an embarrassment for private school to lose to public school, both have a lot of great athletic kids. Why is it so hard to believe that even though a young man may play lacrosse that their parents are willing to spend for the Chaminade tuition based on their academics and the values instilled learned at Chaminade.

My son plays lacrosse but we chose the school to bring him around other intelligent kids and steer him away spending four years with the types of boys and girls raised by people who put down kids and think lacrosse is everything. When sports are over I want my son to have a great education in the real world and pride for the school he attended and all the classmates. Could not see that happening in public school with the jughead mentality of parents only focused on sports.

kudos to Massapequa on a very good win, but please stop comparing Chaminade's lacrosse program to the Public schools. Year after year Chaminade will be among the Nations best "Top 20" where as a public school will have swings from good to very good to great depending on the talent pool. As mentioned in this Thread earlier Ward Melville 2013 National Champion but those seniors graduated and they go 12 and 5 in 2014.

Your comments are exactly why people don't like chaminade, and love to see them fail. Try being humble, And refrain from making disparaging comments without any basis. I guess all the Ivy,Duke,Hopkins,ND etc. Commits from our horrible public schools lack intelligence, have Jugheads for parents, and live only for lacrosse. Pathetic!

You are the reason people get so up in arms about that school...Every comment you make (whether you mean it or not) comes off as you are better than the rest of the population.

There are only intelligent kids at your school and none of them care about lax?

And yet you, who cares nothing for the jughead mentality of publics and lax, are spending time on this site all about lax??? You have your own thread all about your school and lax, sounds like you are closer to Shoreham than you think.

Perhaps, we can all agree on one thing, whether our kids go to public or private, we all want the best for our children. All people tend to be the same in that they all think that whatever choices they made for their kids are the right, and best possible choices. Natural to disagree, isn't it?

That's true, by all accounts college will not be as challenging academically as HS was for the Chami kids and that has been the concenus for 30 years - ask any alum or recent grad and that's the answer that tou will get

The Washington & Lee reference was in response to a comment that Massapequa players were getting into better schools. Not better lax schools. Are you now going to tell me that Hofstra and Albany are better schools than W&L? Nice to pick out one school out of a multi-school list to (weakly) attack. Proves the point.

Re: CHAMINADE Lacrosse. Stories and news. - 03/30/15 12:12 PM

Over the winter, a couple parents sponsored clinics for the boys that were trying out for the Chaminade JV team. The JV coaches ran the clinics. I understand that the announcement for the first set of clinics was posted on a school bulletin board. I think the announcement for the second session was emailed to a smaller subset of the boys. This was great for the boys who participated, because the coaches got to know them, and they learned the drills that were going to be used in the tryouts. However, some of the boys did not attend because: 1) they played winter sports; 2) they did not find out about the clinics; or 3) they could not afford the clinics (around $300 total, plus "donations" to the coaches). Two questions:

1) Do parents at other schools do something similar?

2) Are there rules for this type of activity?

Sounds like a nightmare. When you say a few parents "sponsored" these clinics, exactly what does "sponsoring" entail? Can we assume that the boys of the parents who "sponsored" these clinics were all safely on the call back email for the 2nd clinic?

These parents set up the location, dates, coordinated with the coaches, and collected the money. One of these parents also sent the email for the second session, so yes, they were all on the email for the second session.

Selectively choosing kids before tryouts? Paying for play with school coaches? Excluding certain kids? Heavy parental involvement? Are these all part of the special set of morals and values the students at Chaminade are taught? Sounds like a money grab, pay for play, under the table job if you ask me. Ya know, because it's all about academics over there. What nonsense... Clear example of how this school is all about money, politics and privilege. You can keep that dump, this crap just doesn't happen at our highly rated public. Imagine paying to deal with this garbage????

Sounds like a nightmare. When you say a few parents "sponsored" these clinics, exactly what does "sponsoring" entail? Can we assume that the boys of the parents who "sponsored" these clinics were all safely on the call back email for the 2nd clinic?


No different than CSH parents organizing out of state events and every Crease Booster Club on LI. Cozy up to coaches so your kid sticks and plays.

It's like this everywhere now. The coaches allow the parents to have heavy involvement because the parents pay the coaches. In my town there are no try outs anymore. The team is picked before the first practice including what underclassman move up. No opportunity to compete for spots or playing time anymore.

If Chaminade is going to allow this BS, then they should allow 9th and 10th graders to play up on Varsity, which is very mild in comparison to paying off the JV coaches. How the JV coaches are ok with opening themselves up to such criticism for a few extra bucks is beyond me. Somebody should alert the school's AD.

Yeah but Chaminade is supposed to be better than everybody else. I guess the flesh is weak on Jericho Turnpike as well.

You people don't understand. It's not that they cant play varsity, its that they are not better than the upper classman. Just because in public school they throw your kid on varsity to keep you happy, they aren't concerned here.

No. They just accept re-classed students. The parents decide their sons will have an opportunity to play if they have their academically sound sons, who were lready accepted the prior January, repeat the 8th grade and reapply to the freshman class one year later.

You can't make a blanket statement that freshmen shouldn't be on Varsity, my son is starting as a freshman, he was the leading scorer during scrimmages and has 6 points in his first two games. If a kid can contribute on Varsity, why should he regress on a JV or Fresh/Soph team because of his age. I thought schools were supposed to be challenge our children in all aspects.

If I can play devils advocate on this issue - should they not have done this because some kids are playing winter sports or can not afford this? they have to collect money because the indoor facility costs money and if a parent did not organize this it would not have gotten done. It is not perfect but bending over backwards to be fair is really catering to the weakest links not the strongest.

Great for your son. He is certainly the exception. What top 10 school in the country is he the leading scorer for as a freshman?

The aforementioned schools all have 300-400 boys per grade, if they can't field a team with their 11 and 12 graders that would be very sad

Re: CHAMINADE Lacrosse. Stories and news. - 03/30/15 11:10 PM

And also to the formentioned schools players,college coaches know full well that even an amazing Junior at St.Ants or Chaminade will wait their respective turn to play as seniors,if there is a good amount of Seniors already in that position...I was told directly by a college coach that they will recruit from the benches of St.Ants or Chammy because the player had to be good just to be considered on such a competetive team. At St.Ant's in fact, there were Varsity cuts this year and about 10 boys know they will never get field time in a game but yet they stay and practice.
Good Luck to all the boys!!!!

You people are talking about this like it's the 11th Commandment. "Thou shall not play Freshmen on Varsity". I don't know first hand about Chaminade but at St A's this is at the discretion of the Varsity coach. IF he has a superstar Freshmen and IF he has a need for another superstar on Varsity, he can move him up. The first "IF" is not that uncommon, it's the second "IF" that is the rarity.

With the large talent pool, the coaches can favor upperclassmen and give them the playing opportunity while keeping a better Freshman player on a team that plays a very competitive schedule. The upperclassman are able to continue playing the sport and the underclassmen stay challenged and competitive.

They do move Freshmen up to JV (did it this year). Now before you start screaming "that's where they play in the public's", I only mention it to point out that it's not chiseled in stone and the coaches make a decision on what is best for the player, team and most of all, the program.

I may not know what I'm talking about as much as others posting on this thread but the systems seem to be working at both schools.

Yean but they are not getting reps which will be important when they go to a d1 school.
lets take a team like Syosset that has 3-4 freshman starters and playing good competition.
I would think the d1 coach would like the season 4 year starter over the 2nd string chaminade player.
Come lets be real chaminade parents

one legit starter and three getting a lot of playing time but that by no way means that they are better then the freshman at Chaminade or would even start or be stars on Chaminade freshman team just that they are very good players and fill a need for their team.....IMHO

I'm certain the Freshmen are outstanding players, however, would they be starting (or even on Varsity) if there were better upper clansmen? The coach's main objective is to do what's best for the team and program, not get Freshmen committed. If the Freshmen make the team better (and I'm sure they do), then he can accomplish both.

Are there Freshmen at St A's of Cham that would make the Varsity better? I don't know. If the coaches believe so they will be up there.

College coaches will also tel you that they want players with upside and that the kid who's been playing year round lax and nothing else and has 4-5 years of varsity experience might very well have already hit his ceiling...

Whats reprehensible is the exclusionary second call-back by secretive email. Was there a second larger payment for the now "chosen ones" select sub-group who were called back or did the first round of suckers who weren't called back subsidize the subsequent sessions for the chosen ones? Just gross.

nobody is comparing the two schools, both are excellent and both are very different - I would say if Chaminade is trying to compare itself to anyone it should be comparing themselves to Boys Latin and Malverne Prep ect. If the best argument they can make is that they are a little better then a public school then they have lost their way.

Who said we don't care. Of course we care but we also want our kids to have choices of where they will spend the next 4 years. We don't have to jump at the first D1 School that shows a little bit of interest and commit even though your kid knows nothing about the school or what he wants to do in life. Just so you can pat yourself on the back and say my kid is committed. What second thoughts no way he is committed. Coach is gone since my kid committed so what my kid is committed. Dont have the program my son wants to study. No problem he will give that up and be a psychology major he is committed. He is going to make it to the pros play for the Lizards and make $3500 a game and live in my basement. GOOD LUCK WITH THAT.
My kid applied to 12 schools he was (he was interested in) and got accepted to all and 8 of those schools want him to play lacrosse. Yes he applied to a few that don't have D1 programs only club (now). HE has a decision to make and lots of choices. Thank you Chaminade

When exactly was the last time Syosset boys lacrosse won anything? They are forever a pretender - a lot of blow hard talk but no trophies to back it up. Just an average program at best.

Congratulations to your son! No bashing from me, just happy for your kid. I think the bashing generally comes because chammy--like all other schools public or private--have a bell curve when it comes to parents.

Most, like you, want nothing but the best for their kids but of course, chammy has a bunch of nut job parents that tend to think they are better than everyone else...No different in our public school or any other school for that matter.

Again, congratulations to your son, his hard work is commendable.

Congrats to your son - I am confused about your rant regarding 9th and 10th grade commits because Chaminade has a lot of them - are you saying it is bad to commit early or that only Chaminade kids/parents that commit early are actually weighing all of the pros and cons to their decision. There are a lot of strong schools on LI and Cham is one of many. I think most people would agree with that statement. The real issue is the arrogance and moral authority that many Chaminade supporters are perceived to exhibit.

You clearly fall on the edges of the bell curve into the nutty parent category.

I am not against an early commit if it is the right fit and not just so a parent can brag to BOTC or Inside Lacrosse. If you really want to break it down an early commit means nothing other than a gentlemen's agreement. Kid still has to finish school get good grades score well on SAT's and not get in any trouble or a coach can rescind the offer at any time. All depending on what school we are talking about. Nothing is done until acceptance letter is received and papers are signed. Then there is the financial side. Except for the very very few who get a pass because of talent (every coach gets a couple of free passes) most are sweating out until the very end

The first three will be great to see how St A. Compares to the top teams. Last two will not be close.

Re: CHAMINADE Lacrosse. Stories and news. - 04/02/15 12:27 AM

clearly the longer u wait the better chance of making the right decision but u risk losing ur spot to the next kid -many (not all) of the top schools use 10-11 spots on young commits and keep 1-2 spots for misses a year or 2 later - early commits are playing the odds IMO - even older hs players make wrong decisions - calling out young players for committing is taking blame off of the D1 coaches - they have changed the way the game is played and players are responding to the best odds for the the best school they can perhaps attend - if i commit to an ivy and do not get in then i suspect another strong school will be waiting in the wings just not A IVY......

Unfortuantely Newsday did not feel the need to cover the game in anyway shape or form. Was there a better game with a better cause going on somewhere on LI we did not know about

Not even a box score

Box score is on the coaches to report!! Newsday does not send teams of reporters to HS games. They rely on the coaches for scores, stats and feedback. Certainly a newsworthy cause and event though!

Newsday deserves it. Last I checked, most people do not get their news, even lacrosse, from this site. for the most part it's anonymous, remember.

you obviously only read Newsday because that is not true. they might have the same news but it's slanted toward their obvious biases. no thanks. we can get back to Chaminade. that's what we are here for. couldn't resist the jab. check out some other publications. you might be surprised what is actually happening.

Maybe the problem is the "real world". Why shouldn't young men grow up in a principled, ethical, moral environment that makes them good adults. The problem is that people accept the way the "real world" is and rather than having principles, they succumb to the base, immoral thought processes which have adults treating each other and their children so poorly on this site. Someone told me about it...just had to see it to believe it.

Fresh team plays:

Northport - W - 12-0
Don Bosco - W - 12-5
St. A - W - 12-2
Iona Prep - W - 18-0
Farifield Prep - W - 11-1
St. A - W - 16-2
Kellenberg
St. John Baptist
Greenwich

Is Massapequa one of the "better publics?" If so, Chaminade lost by 2 and did not have one of the their best middies (MD commit) and one of their starting d-men (BU commit) - both out injured at the time.

Not only was nothing derogatory but in fact the question was raised because he is one of Chaminade's best players and is always in the box score. Hats off to St. A's if they kept him off the board.

That may be one of the dumbest things I have seen. They play 2 halves - don't they? Winning by 2 is not killing a team. Unless, of course, Pequa emptied the bench in the 2nd half and played only the 3rd and 4th liners - which we all know didn't happen. Not taking anything away from reigning state champ Pequa - they are a great team and should be in the County final again. Just responding to the poster dissing Chaminade - also an excellent team.

Moderator, why is this not edited? A player's name is being used in the open.





Because the moderators discussed if a child isn't in any way being attacked and nothing bad is being said we will let it go.

I think everyones definition of "any way being attacked" will be different. You are printing a minors name for no resason. Brings no value to conversation.

Too sensitive. Their names are printed in Newsday and on rosters. In no way will we let an attack or anything bad be said. That's how we have decided to handle it. If you want register and contribute and become a moderator if you feel different and we can discuss further. Until then the moderators feel it is OK.

Comparing yourself to newsday doesn't make it OK. Is it OK for people to have opinions different than the "moderators"? Seems like you may be the sensitive one.

Your opinion is fine I was just giving you examples of where else the players names are posted. As moderators we discussed and agreed to leave comments that when a High School players name is mentioned in a positive light why not leave it. A question was asked if a particular player played in the game. Nothing disparaging was said. This is a site for information and lacrosse discussion.

You are correct.
BOTC less biased unlike Newsday.
Newsday is like the all Garden City channel.
All GC......All the time. Full page spreads, full page photos.
Pretty obvious some Newsday exec lives in GC.
This goes for all HS sports, not just lacrosse.

It is not an upset when you lose every week. They are getting ready for their division play so here comes the wins.

I heard they had a scrimmage against the girls team and lost. Stopped the game at half because the girls were playing to rough. LOL

GC won't be back for a few years

Garden City has an excellent defense. Two of the best defenders in the state. They have also played a very tough schedule. I think by the end of the year they will be in a very good position. The notion of Chaminade JV beating them is far fetched. I know a lot of those kids and they would have a hard time getting a shot off.

All the kids to choose from only helps to a certain extent. There are plenty of big public schools who have a lot of good athletic kids to choose from, but the programs are not too strong. Quality program from the AD down to the middle school coaches helps. Public schools lose kids to sta and Cham because those 2 programs are strong but also great coaching. There will be good and bad years but consistent program direction and coaching keeps players coming and staying. Successful programs have coaches that look forward and know what players they have in the pipeline. They also recruit within the school, see a great soccer player and ask the kid to tryout etc.

Sorry to disappoint but nobody choses to go to a private school with athletics as the #1 criteria. That's a parent thing - the kids are thinking about what their entire day will look like. It's all about the well rounded education after which there happen to be a few team sport options after class. Sports are a very minor consideration.

This is a bunch of BS as it relates to Chaminade and lacrosse and you know it. Parents and students alike are choosing the school for the lacrosse pipeline. It's the other way in this case; lacrosse is a major consideration and the well rounded education follows.

St doms should hang head high. 3-1 at half is well done for school of 550 enrollment (boys and girls). 3-4 goals in second half scored while Dom's serving 1:30 min unreleasable. Chaminade great team. Kudos to them as well.

Clear from this response that you did not do well on the "not that difficult" test. Chaminade accepts the boys who score the best on the entrance exam. Get over yourself, hater.

Chaminade is an excellent school. If you look beyond athletics their alumni typically do well in college and their careers. Their lax program is also outstanding. Many kids who attend have played lax yet will probably not make their team since 100 tryout. But if you are a stud on the field and can handle the academics, this place is a great decision. One of my sons will attend and will probably not make the team. No problem, the benefits still outweigh not playing varsity lax.

What is all this Chaminade "snob" nonsense? Kids come from all over with many regular folks making big sacrifices to send their sons there. Go stand at the Mineola train station a D see the hordes of kids busting their butts to commute in fro. Suffolk County. Lots of kids from hard working families in NHP, Seaford, Wantagh, Merrick and other regular towns, to name just a few. Stop acting like every kid in the school gets dropped off in a limo each morning decked out in Vineyard Vines from head to toe.

My apologies to those hardworking and humble kids, which I'm sure there are many. But why the need to brag and insult public programs suggesting Cham JV would beat 70% of Varsity programs?

I am not picking on Chammy or the kids that go there. We stayed public but definitely considered both Chammy and St A-For us, the time my kid would spend on the train just wasn't worth it. So, no disrespect intended.

However, you have one parent (all schools have one just like him/her) who has been insisting from time to time that your JV team can beat 70% of the public's varsity teams. I just wanted to hear him answer the question, can the chammy JV beat the Chammy varsity...Simple enough question and only applies to his opinion. It is not a commentary on the school, the quality of education or the demographic of typical students.

Just want to hear him his enlightened opinion...

The answer is no they can't. As for the loses "on any given day" but the teams they lost to deserved the wins. There are good teams all over the Island and it is good to see some new names but if you are looking for consistency Chaminade Varsity year in year out with a ridiculous schedule.


I am surprised no one is talking about the Freshmen team at Chaminade. No one has even come close to playing them tough. I think they win by 10 every game even against St Anthony's.

hello there little man.........you mentioned 2 schools that beat chammy varsity......your sample size and your stature are both very small. Again section 11 has 49 schools.....chammy JV beats 70% of them. That leaves about 15 schools in section 11 that would beat chammy JV. Nassau probably has similar numbers. .......Sorry there little guy...your green eyed envy is showing again. Imsure you dont even represent the 2 schools you mentioned that beat chammy varsity.

This Freshman team might be the best in Chammy history. Unfortunately there is not much competition out there from other schools that actually have a "freshman/JVB" team. Hence, the major, and I mean major blowouts. Chammy will have the best team in the country for the 2017 & 2018 season. Most likely all the players on those teams will be committed to DI schools.

Hence, the major, and I mean major blowouts. Chammy will have the best team in the country for the 2017 & 2018 season. Most likely all the players on those teams will be committed to DI schools.

Heard the 2017 Chammy team played the 2018 Chammy team last week. How did the 2017 do against they best team in school history?

hello there little man.........you mentioned 2 schools that beat chammy varsity......your sample size and your stature are both very small. Again section 11 has 49 schools.....chammy JV beats 70% of them. That leaves about 15 schools in section 11 that would beat chammy JV. Nassau probably has similar numbers. .......Sorry there little guy...your green eyed envy is showing again. Imsure you dont even represent the 2 schools you mentioned that beat chammy varsity.


Something terribly sad is wrong with you, but nonetheless, answer the question please?

Or are you just another internet tough guy?

Can chammy JV beat chammy varsity?

Look at UnderArmour standings or MSGVarsity standings. Northport is ahead of Chaminade and St. Anthony's. NorthportNo. 4 - Chaminade No. 20. Two best schools on Long Island are public which is Pequa and Syosset. Pay for an education and not a lax ranking.

And a hundred kids trying out. Kind of ridiculous. As a former private school graduate, let's hear it for the public schools. This two headed catholic school monster is tiring. But the same parents who don't care about their sons being on the Express B or C team are the same ones content with their sons being third, fourth or fifth string in Mineola or Huntington. It's about the parents being associated with a winning team.

Hey lacrosse catholic vs public school expert check Laxpower ratings. Here's how they have the top 20
1 Haverford PA
2 Landon MD
3 Massapequa NY
4 Syosset NY
5 Ward Melville NY
6 St Stephen/St Agnes
7 Smithtown East NY
8 Gonzaga MD
9 Boys Latin MD
10Hill Academy ON Canada
11 Chaminade NY
12 Northport NY
13 Georgetown Prep MD
14 Darien CT
15 MCDonagh MD
16 Hun School NJ
17 St Anthony's NY
18 St Paul's MD
19 Brunswick School CT
20 Loyola Blakefield MD
21 Connequot NY

It's not the two headed monster.....most of the schools on the list have very strong club/town teams with dedicated youth coaches that send the High School coaches excellent players no matter the type of school. Laxpower one of the best rating systems.

This is a Chaminade page, I'm talking Long Island. The idea that Massapequa, Syosset, Ward Melville and Smithtown East are ahead of Chaminade is hilarious. Did 100 kids try out for those public school varsity and JV teams? Did very good lacrosse players get cut from those public school teams? When two buses show up to play you its ridiculous. They show up with double the number of kids on the sideline than most teams have on their entire roster. Then Moran and Wieczorek pat themselves on the back as they pass the championship trophy back and forth. Two thumbs up for Massapequa and WM beating Chaminade's All Star team.

Perhaps they shouldn't cut kids and arrive at away games on 3 buses. 85 kids on the sideline. Then maybe they could be the best team on LI. LOL. I have an idea. Let's put Massapequa on one bus and Farmingdale on another. We will call them Farmapequa. Let's see how Chaminade and St Anthonys do. Oh and let's put the Smithtown schools back together too. So tired of hearing about these private schools where parents brag that their kids go to Chaminade and are third string. Choosing the best 10 out of 100 is not hard. Let's see them put the best 10 out of 30 on the field. Then they might have to coach alittle.

Keep patting yourself on the back. With all you parents wanting your kids on a "winner" regardless if they will ever play, soon there will be a JVA, B, C, D and E. (You know like the Express) LOL

You must have not been there the day that the Syosset Varsity played the Chaminade Varsity at Cantiague Park in March or else you wouldn't have made this comment . It was an embarrassment , looked like Syosset was playing a Chaminade freshman team ,
They couldn't even compete. We know , we know , it's was a scrimmage , Chaminade was missing best players etc etc. So was Syosset. Early season injuries hadn't returned yet so the excuses don't work.
Don't want to hit below the belt but don't continue to brag and make false statements or else people will come back at your team with the truth

Chaminade has a consistently strong program because they stick with their system year in and year out. Freshman team, JV Team, Juniors and Seniors on Varsity. That said, I have seen many of their players over the years come up through the ranks of the town and club teams and their is nothing special or extraordinary about their talent pool. I just think they have an excellent coach and system and it gets the most out of what I would classify are good players. Same for St. Anthony's.

There are plenty of strong schools in the public system. However the consistency is not as great as the year in and year out talent ebbs and flows.

I would like to see Chaminade or St. Anthony's play the winner of Section 8 and Section 11 in some kind of annual All Island Championship.

Would pay for a real game against Syosset. That "SCRIMMAGE" played when Chaminade was still making cuts and kids were being evaluated. Also did not have starting defensemen or 1st line middie playing. Also Chaminade did not practice for 3 months prior with their Coaches which by the way is against the rules but who's watching.

Really. I can honestly say that is the most pathetic comeback that is used on this board. The use of you're and your in a grammatically incorrect way is not the issue you have. I can see your inability to come up with a more viable argument shows your feeble mindedness. Your lack of education is evident.

Except that the "P" in Public was capitalized...perhaps it is difficult to see that when you're being the grammar/spelling police.

Syosset would love another win against Chaminade this year . If you're as obsessed as you sound in tracking what Syosset does then you would know that during that scrimmage we were playing without our top attack goal scorer due to a preseason injury as well as our top middie and many starting defenseman that are still out of commission but we play with what we have and don't make excuses because what you have that day is your team . No excuses . Each team you go against is in the same boat with missing players due to injuries etc so you can't keep falling back on that excuse when you lose . Syo beat garden city this year too , schools have off seasons . Chaminade seems to be this year also , no excuses, no shame . We all go through it . Next year it will be someone else's turn . You never know
Either way would love another chance to bring it on at this point of the season , I believe chaminades head would spin

All grammar aside I think its pathetic that either Chaminade or St Anthonys isn't the #1 ranked team on LI. How many public school teams have 100 quality kids going out for the team? And another 100 on JV? And if the number of kids didn't matter there wouldn't be A, B and C Divisions in public school lacrosse. Chaminade and St Anthonys coaches benefit from picking from a huge pot. Overrated.

The misguided idea that Cham or Anthony's should never lose to a public school is not only ignorant but shows utter disrespect to public schools who put together amazing classes. The fact of the matter is that there are simply years that schools like Ward Melville, Darien, Garden City, etc. field amazing teams. Two years ago, Chaminade fielded one of the most talented high school teams I ever saw (Zenker, Fowler, Dunne, Lukacovic, Muller, Cerrone, Bonafede, Carrigan, Clarke, etc,) and still lost to a public school: Yorktown. It happens. Some days teams are just flat. That is why you play the game on the field, not on paper or based on Div 1 commits.

You act like Chamunade has their pick of every good player on LI a d that is wrong. Not every kid can get in academically (and others is getting harder every year). You ha e to be a baptized Catholic and you have to be willing to part with $9,0000 a year for tuition. Add to that the fact that many good players come from families that just believe in public school, don't wa t their sons in an all boys school or maybe feel the commute is too far. To me it is amazing that Chaminade does as well as it does year after year and certainly the picture is more complex than you state.

Re: CHAMINADE Lacrosse. Stories and news. - 05/06/15 01:03 PM

Where are you getting these numbers ? From freshmen year on the number dwindles dramatically. 56 kids tried out for Varsity 44 on team including 4 goalies. Garden City, Manhasset, had just as many. In addition after freshmen year many return to their public school for many reasons. Work load one but lack of playing time when they could be a super star on their public school team is big reason. Before you read the next line I am in no way comparing the 2. Just like parents think their kids are D1 material they think they are going to make and star on Chaminades team and it does not happen. You have freshmen coaches looking at many kids they know nothing about (maybe a few they are aware of) and picking a team on 8 practices. Some slip by and never get a chance it happens. Not every great player on LI (who wants to go to Chaminade) gets in. That is why NCC is so good year after year and the so called lower teir D1 schools are so competitive. LOVE THE FACT THAT SO MANY SCHOOLS ON LI ARE AS GOOD AS THEY ARE WETHER PUBLIC OR PRIVATE. JUST SIT BACK ENJOY THE GAME.

Based on your logic, the Ivies would never be competitive. Yet Yale, Princeton, Brown and Cornell are highly competitive. Chaminade has 500 plus boys per grade. From a lacrosse perspective, based on your statements, those kids decided to go to Chaminade for lacrosse first. With that much talent, and so many boys to choose from, it would seem almost impossible that they would lose to a public school that has 100+ boys per grade. How many boys in these public schools are actually even still playing lacrosse in 9-12 grade, 10-15 per grade max? You talk about GC and Set having the same number of kids, difference is 10 of those kids are 9th an 10th graders. Think about it.

To me it is amazing that Chaminade does as well as it does year after year and certainly the picture is more complex than you state.


You do not have to be baptized catholic to go to Chaminade. I went, am baptized Eastern Orthodox... end of story. Just want that absolute fact to be out there. Do they prefer RC, sure but I can't tell you how many people say to me in conversation that I couldn't have attended because "you have to be Catholic".

Chaminade freshmen made it a sweep over St. A's. Won the 3rd game 12-5 - clearly the most competitive of the 3. Varsity and JV play 2nd game tomorrow.

First off there are not 500 boys per grade . Again where are you getting your numbers from. Many don't even play sports. The Ives are selective and find the good ones with brains. Are they always competitive no. Brown came around this year but Penn dropped off. Tough to get many kids accepted. Look at who is in playoffs this week and lets see how they do.

You act like Chamunade has their pick of every good player on LI a d that is wrong. Not every kid can get in academically (and others is getting harder every year).

Amazed that Chaminade does as well as it does? What are you smoking? Name another school that has that many kids trying out for both varsity and JV (besides St Anthonys). Its not about total school enrollment. That only matters when you can only take kids from the same town. There are kids taking an hour train ride from Suffolk County, not only to be students, but play lacrosse. Wake up. They can pull from every town and promise playing time to those that part with even more $$ to the Express. You think politics don't play a role in who plays and makes the team, as the coaches line their pockets? Only in America.

SO now that the freshmen lacrosse season is coming to an end. Which players that didn't see the field will leave Chaminade?

Talking points LOL

1) They don't have the most kids trying out for varsity and JV?
2) Kids don't take trains from Suffolk?
3) No tie in with the Express?
4) No politics ever played in making the teams?
5) Coaches haven't lined their pockets?

Nope, not convinced. Especially by you!

Re: CHAMINADE Lacrosse. Stories and news. - 05/08/15 02:46 AM


Talking points LOL

1) They don't have the most kids trying out for varsity and JV? And you are basing this on what data source?

2) Kids don't take trains from Suffolk? Of course they do. That was not the point. Instead the point was Chaminade doesn't pull from EVERY town as you suggest. Some kids will commute from Suffolk but others will not. Many kids are great players who either can't get in or get in and can't stay in. That right there is a major filter you are unwilling to acknowledge. And I am not even getting to the tuition as a barrier or the faith based education not being for everyone. The point is their pool is not every lacrosse player on LI as you seem to suggest.

3) No tie in with the Express? Their Varsity coach is a partner in Express. So what? Look at the lineup. They gave #19 (most honored number in memory of a fallen alumnus) to a kid who runs their offense and plays fl$....not Express. They're stud starting defender? Also fl$. And they have had plenty from 91, Outlaws and others in their starting line-ups over the past few years from the Freshman team right up through Varsity. Fact. So stop the garbage insinuations that only Express players get on the field or the whole enterprise is corrupt and designed solely to "line the pcokets" of the directors. Frankly, that is libelous and if you want to make that statement try signing your name to it.

4) No politics ever played in making the teams? More hearsay nonsense. Can I rule out some form of politics at Chaminade? No I cannot. But I have put kids through both Chaminade and the public school and the politics in the public are far and away worse. You are delusional if you think parents aren't politicing, running fundraisers, working the phones, etc. to help their kids get on public varsity teams

5) Coaches haven't lined their pockets? Again, sign your name before you make such a derogatory claim against people running a top program like Chaminade for decades. There are stories upon stories of the good the coaches there have done. To say it is all about "lining their pockets" just exposes you for the small-minded, person with an axe to grind that you are.

Nope, not convinced. Especially by you!

Forgive me if I don't find your arguments terribly persuasive.

My son plays Express and does NOT go to Charminarde. I can’t speak to what does or doesn’t go on there! I can tell you that Jack is his coach and I wouldn’t want him to be coached by anybody else. He coaches him like he is his own son and teaches him how to be a man. He has done a lot for us with regards to recruiting and we DON’T go to his school. There should be more coaches like this in all sports today. It is interesting that people will write about others anonymously. They say I heard this and that? Please remember that you should believe nothing of what you here and only half of what you see. It’s all about your experiences.

....and the irony is that in your rabid desire to impugn the program you have constructed a great page of crimson and gold Chaminade colors which just either evidences how little you know about the school.

Nothing against Jack. The original argument was that Chaminade and St Anthonys should be 1 or 2 on LI with the pool of kids they choose from. The Express connection only strengthens my contention. Are there politics everywhere? Absolutely. And would the Chaminade and St Anthonys coaches want more competition from within the catholic league? Absolutely not. This way they can travel all over the area, play teams like Darien, Greenwich, Delbarton, Yorktown, Massapequa, Ward Melville, and no matter the result, have a 50% chance of winning the Catholic AAA championship every year.

Now you're a mind reader and you know that the Chaminade and St. Anthony's coaches don't want any other Catholic High School teams to play at their level. Please let me know what else these coaches have told you, of course, you know because you are a mind reader!

Why don't you enjoy the playoffs and write a book in your spare time.

So then why don't they bring the other Catholic schools into the Express fold? Or could it be they don't want to divide the pie up into anymore pieces? Best of both worlds. $$ and Championships!!

Re: CHAMINADE Lacrosse. Stories and news. - 05/08/15 04:22 PM

I have been around this school a long time. I have relationships with a fair number of their admin. and coaches (not Really with Jack beyond he would recognize me as an active guy at the school). Here are some of my views.

A. More competition from the rest of the CHSAA would be welcomed, but they realize if a kid is a stud lax player and is inclined to go Catholic they aren't going to go to a school not named Chaminade or St. Anthony's. They aren't afraid of the competition and it would only help national rankings.

B. Express is certainly an important tool for both CHSAA big boys. Both schools have an early look at youngsters, and conversely kids and parents get to see both schools coaches up close. This familiarity must, coupled with public v private, shape the decisions. If you want to call this recruiting I think that's a reach.

C. Is playing Exress a prerequisite to playing time. Nonsense. Yeah, the Express kids have relationships that may give them a head start but as more programs develop history has shown plenty of non_Express kids have been impact players.

D. Do these coaches play politics? I think it is more that they sometimes fall in love with kids, spotting potential, and may stay with them perhaps to the detriment of some other kids playing time. Sometimes they are right, and sometimes the potential isn't reached.

E. The fact that kids take trains from Suffolk is irrelevant. The choice to take a train to go to the school you want to isn't the kid's/parent's call. As a Chaminade guy the only thing that tells me is St. a's should question why? Not many kids from Nassau going the other way.

Yeah I know, that was uncalled for. Hahahaha

wow that's a change. normally people are saying that Kellenberg is in the fold because of Director MS. A number of St Dom's kids play Express as well. If you think these 2 coaches don't want a stronger catholic league you couldn't be more wrong. In fact they are around at tournaments all summer and are recognizable. Why don't you walk up and ask them. They went to playing more non - league games exactly because they recognized that the league was getting weaker as a whole and wanted to keep helping their kids be challenged and grow as players. If you think its anything else you then you don't know either of these 2 coaches at all

D. Do these coaches play politics? I think it is more that they sometimes fall in love with kids, spotting potential, and may stay with them perhaps to the detriment of some other kids playing time. Sometimes they are right, and sometimes the potential isn't reached.

E. The fact that kids take trains from Suffolk is irrelevant. The choice to take a train to go to the school you want to isn't the kid's/parent's call. As a Chaminade guy the only thing that tells me is St. a's should question why? Not many kids from Nassau going the other way.

Yeah I know, that was uncalled for. Hahahaha


Getting to Chaminade is a lot easier than getting to St. A's no matter which county you live in, unless you have a car and can drive.

So then why don't they bring the other Catholic schools into the Express fold? Or could it be they don't want to divide the pie up into anymore pieces? Best of both worlds. $$ and Championships!!


wow that's a change. normally people are saying that Kellenberg is in the fold because of Director MS. A number of St Dom's kids play Express as well. If you think these 2 coaches don't want a stronger catholic league you couldn't be more wrong. In fact they are around at tournaments all summer and are recognizable. Why don't you walk up and ask them. They went to playing more non - league games exactly because they recognized that the league was getting weaker as a whole and wanted to keep helping their kids be challenged and grow as players. If you think its anything else you then you don't know either of these 2 coaches at all


Look at the standings, St Johns is probably closest to being competitive, but they don't get nearly the number of kids to truly threaten. I did hear that they brought in some new coaches. As a former St Anthony's grad, I liked when Trinity and SJB could win every so often. This put two teams in the championship before the season starts is lamentable. Go Friars.

That's actually the problem. They play the express kids at the other schools because of helmets. Most times they are the B and C players. The A players play at chamniade or st Anthony's or stay at public.

Not lurking in fact I'm a huge Flyer fan. My point is that people ,

Just don't get what that has to do with game.

Don't think anyone is lurking, there will be triple that amount of coaches at the county championships and Suffolk /Nassau games, unfortunately privates are not eligible for those!

St Anthony's should have no excuse for not winning every year. At least you need grades to get into Chaminade 8-)

Re: CHAMINADE Lacrosse. Stories and news. - 05/26/15 03:30 PM

The sophs had an excellent team this year. Tangredi (Harvard commit) and Chmil (Duke commit) are excellent players. However, it is always difficult to tell how sophs will translate on the varsity level. At many schools, public and private, top 10th graders get moved up to varsity. As a result, Chaminade sophs often do not get tested against a very good schedule. This past year, not too many juniors made large contributions on the offensive side of the ball. Next year's varsity squad will need some offensive help.

Agree. Cham. Had some great senior talent this year. Very surprised at this. Does anyone know who is on this committee? Maybe putting (7) Chamm players on last years underclass team was a bit much? input?

You don't need grades, you need to pass a simple test and Cham has 450 boys per grade to select from.

"You don't need grades, you need to pass a simple test and Cham has 450 boys per grade to select from."

There is no passing or failing the test. Generally speaking, you need to get one of the top scores on a test taken by hundreds and hundreds of boys in order to get into the school.

In recent years, I know eight boys who left Chaminade or Anthony's after their freshman year because of lack of playing time. Every single player who left made varsity at their public high school as sophs and received substantial playing time.

They accept to 15-20%.
Not a "simple" exam.

some students leave Cham (were asked to leave/expelled) not for lack of PT but because of discipline issues.

Lastly, one student left public joined St A for better spot.
that is not the case for Cham.

slight change to subject if I may....why is it that teams like ST DOM'S, OR IONA PREP (are they legit?)(AA) plays in a state tournament while Chaminade cant play anyone but Ants each year and its over?
no way anyone should be declaring themselves state champs if they essentially have 2 league games and a 3rd go round vs Ants .

You sure about your math? If they only accept 20% and there are 500 boys per grade are you saying that 2500 boys apply each year? Seems high

Why do you people constantly have to say how great Chaminade is academically? If it was so great you wouldn't need to constantly promote it, let it stand on its own laurels if its so great.

Apples and organges.....Regis is clearly better academically but is much smaller, in NYC and has very little in the way of sports (no lax or football). There have been kids who got into Regis but opted for Chaminade because they wanted to play sports and didn't want to commute to the Upper East Side every day. But, you are 100% right....Regis is stronger academically than Chaminade.

Great, another great school!

Instead of complaining/bashing on a Chaminade thread, why not start a new thread on how excellent your education system is and how beneficial it is to your children.

Be thankful for the publics helping the "masses" become employable and good citizens. That's what you and I are paying for. The fact that we made a decision to send our kids to Catholic school, means that more of MY tax dollars are spent on public school kids (not mine). This is still good for my community.

I live in an excellent school district and my kids and I still wanted the Chaminade experience. There are however some great students in our home High School.

It is simple, the top 20% students at any school can compete with those at any other school.

The only tidbit to understand is: yes, the pool of students at Chaminade is the top 20% of the boys that took the entrance exam. This is a good indicator of their ability to succeed there.

In almost all cases faith will be a driving factor. Not everyone accepted will choose to go. Some won't like the structure, discipline, or the work load and will leave. Some will struggle. It is a college preparatory school. 398/399 went to college last September.

If the Chaminade deal is not for you or your kid (for whatever reason), that is fine. If the public deal is not for the rest of us, that should be fine too.

Let it go, dude!

I was saying to a Chammi grad (who did not like his experience) that I was generally impressed by most of the grads I had met in college, through work, or where I live and their general success. He replied, "you'be been through 3 layers of screens--ivy, wall st, an expensive town, I'll show you the other 300 grads from class you are toiling on the other side of the tracks." The individual will determine his or her success, not the institution. Pros and cons to good public, private or catholic educations. Have a great weekend.

Nonsense, I've know a few and they are all very successful.

I actually think the economic diversity within the Chaminade student body and alumni is healthy and nothing to be ashamed about. Yes, you have sons of hedge fund managers going to school with sons of sanitation workers. And yes, many graduates opt not for Wall St but rather to run their own small business, join the military, law enforcement, etc. Believe me, most kids there are not targeting Ivy League schools (which hate conservative Chaminade) and many are more interested in SUNY schools because they don't have money to burn. Sorry, but I don't see that as a bad thing. It is a very good high school populated by all walks of people. Those who constantly come on here and suggest it is a fancy pants, rich boy school don't know what they are talking about.

Yes Chaminade is made up of kids from all over and parents from all different occupations and economic makeups. But isn't about giving your child a shot at a better chance than what you had if possible. A Dad that has worked in the trenches all his life is not saying hey son I want you to have to do what I did for 35 years. You always want better and Chaminade is one of those chances.

I hope you are not disparaging a man and his profession.

Your comment seems to indicate that is not a worthwhile career While chaminade has its fair share of white collar professionals and acdemics; it also has a fair share of blue collar guys, FDNY, NYPD, service men, et al. While I"m at it, Cham has war heros, medal of honor winners too.

That would be funny if you chose to passive aggressively throw a jab at a Verizon guy, because we can then go down the road of all the elite top 10 collegiate lax grads that are working at sports hub or giving lax lessons to tiny tots.

By the way, I'm gonna bet that the chaminad grad leaves you a nice tip every time you wash his car.

Yes. This only happens at Chaminade. Doesn't happen anywhere else including public schools. Must be the snobby Cham dads with their bright red attire that the public school guys like so much.

Only reason you would take the comment as disparaging is if you felt it wasn't a worthy profession. No one should ever judge a person by the honest profession they choose.

The comment was in response to the hubris expressed by some here who think that Chaminade is the ticket to "master of the universe" status. Disparaging are those who say that a Chaminade education is superior to a public one.

Success is defined in many different ways. Thankfully, we live in a country that provides the opportunity for hard working and smart people to achieve economic success, no matter who they are or where they graduated from.

How about some lacrosse talk?

Unfortunately it is true. He resigned from Coaching all sports. With todays technology you have to watch yourself at all times. The guy wears his heart on his sleeve and gives 100% all the time. Anyone who has coached for a long time knows every once in a while you get caught up when you feel others don't care as much as you do or don't put in the effort that you do and you express yourself. Every coach has yelled screamed at a player especially if you have coached for 30 years. He didn't single out one kid he was addressing the team as a whole which we have all done from time to time. Some kid decided to record that moment and turn it over to school officials. Not saying what he did was right but 30 years of helping kids become better people and because of an outburst right after a game he is forced to resign. The kid that taped it was probably one of the ones that he was talking about and doesnt care and was more concerned with his phone. I hope he is happy at the outcome.

The kid who taped it, and then sent it to all the kids on the team, was not a player. One of those kids probably showed Mum & Father, and they complained to the Bubble Bath Authorities. Sad because he was a good guy.

Pomps is a GREAT guy. He is a fiery coach and he truly cares about the kids. It is a shame that after 30 years at Chaminade, one event like this can take down a really good coach and an even better person. This is another example of the "pussification" of America and having to deal with helicopter parents and entitled kids who are never told know and don;t know what failure is.

Plain and simple. All alumni and more importantly all the interested DONORS should back this coach up. HE IS A GREAT GUY/coach.
It seems all too often the self important meddling parents of kids who get out performed are the ones calling the shots. It's an epidemic that needs to stop.
It's time to get involved and put your MONEY WHERE YOUR MOUTH IS. STOP DONATING IF THIS MISTAKE ISNT REVERSED.

Get involved fellow alumni and let the Brothers know the difference between right and wrong.
They obviously lost their way.

I am a StA lax dad (from 2 years ago), Pomps is a GREAT guy and awesome coach. Not often Chaminade & SA lax folks can agree but as for as Pomps goes he is class "A" all the way. Our society is just SOFT. Sad.

Para-phrasing of course...but he called the team out after giving up two touchdowns in the last 3 minutes of the game to lose by 1. Did he use some 4 and 5 letter words...yes. Did he question the teams mettle....yes. He also sat a bunch of starters on Monday for the second string. possibly for a wake up call. But surprise surprise, after Pomp was let go on Wednesday, the starters were back on the first team. TROUBLE IN THE TUB!

Sorry but this is all from those daddys and mommy's who never played sports. Being tough on kids and calling them out is no reason to be let go. I wish I could use the inflection of my voice to get my point across. You parents need to let your kids get coached. It's [lacrosse] plain and simple. Uncoachable kids become unemployable adults, let your kids get use to someone being tough on them.

First things first you cant call the kids soft and weak based on the fact that they go to Chaminade. Kids in general are a bit softer these days regardless of where they go to school because they are so damm pampered. I think the coach just got fed up with the bs of accepting a loss and laughing and joking on the bus. If you are there just to play and don't take losses seriously especially if you lose by 1 point when the other team scores 2 touchdowns to beat you maybe you need a little bit of a wake up call. These are not little kids.

I have heard the audio. And I have no skin in this game other than I have been told that he is a good man and a passionate coach that has dedicated himself to Chaminade.

There was nothing that he said to group of young men who are sophomores in high school that justifies his being removed as a coach. Quite frankly, it could have been me, or any of us, laying into our own kids for poor performance or poor behavior. What a disgrace.

nosy? yeah, lets just sweep it under the rug. isn't it illegal in NY to tape someone without their knowledge? it wouldn't hold up in court. 30 years of coaching should be granted more consideration than it appears was given. one thing is for sure, kids are softer today and the sooner they realize mommy can't always bail them out the better. cursing shouldn't happen but what about forgiveness. isn't that what the Catholic religion is all about? seems like there is more to the story. you may be satisfied but I'm not.

What does court have to do with it? If an employer doesn't like and employees actions or conduct they can fire an employee regardless whether the employee violated the law or not.

I wouldn't want any further posting of a video that an immature kid passed around. I support Coach Pomps with or without hearing it. The bottom line is the kids were wrong to record and then further pass around. The parents were wrong to run and complain and lastly respectfully the brothers were wrong to cave into the parents pressure.

No benefit to a man who has been coaching 36 years whom so many respect to having any further posting of the video. So sad the world has changed forever with social media running/ruining lives.

But it is okay to berate young boys for losing a game? Not saying maybe the coach didn't get a bad deal but it should never be ok to verbally assault a minor because they didn't win! Step back for just a minute. It was just a game.

no one said its ok. People do get to their breaking point. You obviously have never been a coach. Its very similar to being a parent. We make mistakes. The point is does it warrant firing or is this more to appease the parents.

so you contend that coaches laying into players for lousy performance after games is now called verbal assault? are you serious?

They did not get yelled at because they lost. They got yelled at for how they acted on the bus after losing.

No but I am a parent. If your son came over to my house to hang with my son and I was screaming and swearing at your son, I'm guessing you wouldn't be dropping off your son again anytime soon. Everyone has their moments. There is also self control.
I'll ask you this---does it also mean that the coaches that hit their players and throw things at them when they don't perform thats ok too--- because he's a coach and it was in the heat of the moment. Not being a jerk. Asking the question. Where do you draw the line?

So I ask you? In what other facet of these young men's lives, is it acceptable for an Adult in a position of authority to behave this way towards them? Other than a coach, who would you allow to talk this way to your son? The brothers at his school? The teachers? His boss at a part time job? A stranger? Come on man, it's a GAME... A meaningless game that many kids are trying to play for FUN. It's not D1 football or the NFL. Good lord, put it in perspective. Obviously, the Administration at the school has their collective heads on straight. Is the Coach of the Math team, Debate team, or any other team that might actually get these kids somewhere in life allowed to speak that way? No. Would you allow your wife's Boss to speak to her that way? No. Yet for some reason, you mental patients think it's "OK" for the Football Coach to speak that way to your kid. Again, about a GAME...

Again, Pomps was addressing the team as a whole--not any particular player. What occasioned the outburst was the team's behavior on the bus after a loss that could have been avoided. Posting the incident on social media for others (who likely have no standing) to judge will not help the situation nor is it the right thing to do. But to intimate that what happened was verbal assault is irresponsible.

So now, we are talking about the use of a few curse words to a group of 15 and 16 y/o kids (NOT LITTLE BOYS) whose behavior was not what you would expect after you lost a hard fought game. Maybe they don't deserve to play for Chaminade--but because poor Jimmy's feelings were hurt and Jimmy's parents complained, we're in this situation. It's a disgrace.

I think many of us are getting off the track here. I do not know Pomponio personally but I know who he is and I know plenty of kids who have played for him. The vast majority are supporting him.
In the grand scheme of things, I'm not sure his anger was based in the fact that they lost a game. It seems to me that it was more rooted in that the kids didn't seem to care about what just happened. A coach works hard all week to prepare kids to compete and it's not unfair to expect the players to care as much as the coach. The least they could do is show some respect for the effort the coach has put into their preparation and development. Could he have chosen his words more carefully? Sure, but sometimes harsh words are the only way to get the message across. We now live in a world where authority figures receive very little in the way of respect. Are we really helping our kids when we jump in and get every coach, teacher, etc. that we don't like removed? Many of us older people on this site played ball when we were young and I am sure we all have stories about some of the crazy coaches we played for. Yes, there were some that were over the top, but they played a huge role in the development of their players and were respected. Ultimately, we knew they cared about us as people, as well as players. This message of caring may not be delivered in every conversation, but over a season or career a player will have little doubt about his/her coach. We have taken a snapshot of a distinguished career and used it to define this man. That's unfair and anyone who has competed in sports knows that there are times when the heat of the moment gets the best of us.
What have we taught this group of boys, that they don't have to be accountable for their actions or behavior? Is that really where we are going? Take a step back and give this some thought the next time a kid shows no respect to a teacher or police officer. Parents need to sit back once in a while and let kids take their lumps. It's a big part of growing up.

really? How much further are you going to spin this? Obviously the line is drawn at hitting. Maybe parents should ask themselves what did my kid do to contribute to provoke this? You sound more like a "not my kid" type of parent. Aren't you the least bit concerned about the kids behavior? We teach them please and thank you and how to he respectful long before this age.

Every coach has yelled screamed at a player especially if you have coached for 30 years. He didn't single out one kid he was addressing the team as a whole which we have all done from time to time. Some kid decided to record that moment and turn it over to school officials. Not saying what he did was right but 30 years of helping kids become better people and because of an outburst right after a game he is forced to resign. The kid that taped it was probably one of the ones that he was talking about and doesnt care and was more concerned with his phone. I hope he is happy at the outcome.


I didn't hear the audio (not even sure if it's public) and I have zero stake in this, but I remember on two occasions (1 baseball and 1 football) in 9th grade we were horsing around in the bus and laughing after a bad loss. Coaches reamed us and made us run shuttles until we almost puked when we got off the bus. I didn't like it then obviously, but as an adult looking back, it taught a valuable lesson. Amazing how things have changed. My parents never intervened in the team. It was up to me to quit if I didn't like or couldn't handle the coach.

Again I caveat this by saying I don't really know the details of this specific situation

Quite frankly, in 30 years of business I've never been spoken to that way. Further, I've never had to speak that way to my employees that way either. It's called decency, something that a coach at a Catholic School should possess. Guy got caught, behaving in an unacceptable manner, let him take his medicine like a man. The very lesson you seek to teach these "NOT LITTLE KIDS". Dope.


I think many of us are getting off the track here. I do not know Pomponio personally but I know who he is and I know plenty of kids who have played for him. The vast majority are supporting him.
In the grand scheme of things, I'm not sure his anger was based in the fact that they lost a game. It seems to me that it was more rooted in that the kids didn't seem to care about what just happened. A coach works hard all week to prepare kids to compete and it's not unfair to expect the players to care as much as the coach. The least they could do is show some respect for the effort the coach has put into their preparation and development. Could he have chosen his words more carefully? Sure, but sometimes harsh words are the only way to get the message across. We now live in a world where authority figures receive very little in the way of respect. Are we really helping our kids when we jump in and get every coach, teacher, etc. that we don't like removed? Many of us older people on this site played ball when we were young and I am sure we all have stories about some of the crazy coaches we played for. Yes, there were some that were over the top, but they played a huge role in the development of their players and were respected. Ultimately, we knew they cared about us as people, as well as players. This message of caring may not be delivered in every conversation, but over a season or career a player will have little doubt about his/her coach. We have taken a snapshot of a distinguished career and used it to define this man. That's unfair and anyone who has competed in sports knows that there are times when the heat of the moment gets the best of us.
What have we taught this group of boys, that they don't have to be accountable for their actions or behavior? Is that really where we are going? Take a step back and give this some thought the next time a kid shows no respect to a teacher or police officer. Parents need to sit back once in a while and let kids take their lumps. It's a big part of growing up.


well said.

Where have all the men of honor and character gone at Chaminade?
IMO the players should band together and demand their coach be reinstated and admit they deserved a tongue lashing … and apologize for their behavior on the bus. Let's see these "MEN" take responsibility for their actions, not whine and complain to their parents because someone raised their voice or used a few choice words to describe them. If they don't, they don't deserve to wear a Chaminade football uniform…. or any uniform for that matter.

At the very minimum, I heard these kids were peeing in water bottles, etc. on the bus....completely inappropriate and out of control, regardless of the school, grade, age, win or lose, etc. I will tell you, My kid would have had a HUGE problem from ME if he had participated in this behavior, not the COACH. At the end of the day what a terrible situation and an embarrassment on how the school and administrators handled it. In this month's Inside Lacrosse magazine, I would encourage everyone to read the artice from Peter Lasagne titled "A Direct Reflection of your Parenting" - The timing could not have been any better and Yes I agree with everything written in the article.

They did not get yelled at because they lost. They got yelled at for how they acted on the bus after losing.


So I ask you? In what other facet of these young men's lives, is it acceptable for an Adult in a position of authority to behave this way towards them? Other than a coach, who would you allow to talk this way to your son? The brothers at his school? The teachers? His boss at a part time job? A stranger? Come on man, it's a GAME... A meaningless game that many kids are trying to play for FUN. It's not D1 football or the NFL. Good lord, put it in perspective. Obviously, the Administration at the school has their collective heads on straight. Is the Coach of the Math team, Debate team, or any other team that might actually get these kids somewhere in life allowed to speak that way? No. Would you allow your wife's Boss to speak to her that way? No. Yet for some reason, you mental patients think it's "OK" for the Football Coach to speak that way to your kid. Again, about a GAME...


What world do you live in? In the business world people use expletives all the time. Is it a terminable offense? Obviously not. And if what Pomps did rose to that level, the administration "with its head on "straight"" would have had to remove his teaching responsibilities as well, which they didn't. So now, we are talking about the use of a few curse words to a group of 15 and 16 y/o kids (NOT LITTLE BOYS) whose behavior was not what you would expect after you lost a hard fought game. Maybe they don't deserve to play for Chaminade--but because poor Jimmy's feelings were hurt and Jimmy's parents complained, we're in this situation. It's a disgrace.


The real world numb skull. Maybe you can talk that way to people on the docks?? I assure you, in "my world" that type of behavior form a person in an position of authority is unacceptable.

Ahh the person who associates the business world with the sports world= no clue about sports. I'm sorry to say but you're the problem with sports in this day and age. Coaching young men sometimes takes tough love. You can't always coddle them and hold their hand. Let someone coach your kids and be tough on them so that they can face real world problems. You cant aleays be there to protect them. I have played professional sports and have worked in big corporate America and vulgar language is constantly used I don't know what company or where you work maybe they don't do it in front of you because you're so sensitive to it but the fact of the matter is in big business America there is vulgar language used. The pusification/demasculization is rediculous. I think a lot of this crap comes from parents who never played a sport. The fields of play were one place where trash talk could occur, coaches yelled expletives to get you going. These are 15 to 16 year old boys who not in the presence of their parents have the mouths of sailors. Let coaches coach and stop being helicopter parents.

no one said it was ok. who's really the mental patient? you are not comprehending. where does the kids behavior become relevant because more and more we see kids getting away with disrespectful behavior and it's largely due to parents letting them get away with it. the teachers, coaches, brothers, whoever don't have a prayer if the parents condone bad behavior. and it's condoned if they run to school for every little thing instead of teaching them how to deal with life. we just taught these kids to entrap an adult in a sneaky illegal way so they can get away with their behavior. great lesson. the coaches record speaks for itself. times have changed since he started. kids are no longer accountable for their actions and they all get a trophy. too bad the parents aren't going to be able to call their potential employer and complain they didn't get the job. what will Johnny do then? wake up!

Maybe the school acted too quickly and could have thought of other less offensive ways to handle the situation. Perhaps speaking to the Coach and suggesting taking the next week practices and game off to reflect as God asks of all of us.

parents who don't think sometimes hurt their own children by acting out without thinking. I hope what I heard isn't true but I was told that when the kid who recorded the incident went to lunch everyone moved from the table. I hope no child has to suffer for his parents actions.

The mental patient is you! The ADULT should have had more composure. He should be accountable for his actions. Respect is earned. When someone in a position of authority over steps his bounds it's wrong. He verbally abused those kids because he could. He said what he said because he knew not one kid was in a position to defend themselves. That's what PUNKS do. That's not toughness. Most of all, he said what he said because he thought he wouldn't get caught! The kid who taped him is a hero. At least he had the courage of his convictions.

This is why I believe it would be beneficial to actually see the video or hear the audio. Many of the users commenting here seem to have not heard it or seen it. As a result, a vast majority of comments are based on speculation and rumor. If the video is available, as a couple of you have mentioned, then let's see it and prove once and for all how "tame" or how "over the top" it was. Everyone is very quickly turning this story into an attack on today's generation of coddled kids - which is perhaps warranted - but since most of us have not actually seen or heard the reality of the situation, it's hard to take any of this speculation seriously. And that's not being nosy - that's wanting to have all the facts available before jumping to conclusions.

You my friend have taken one too many hits to the head. Your bias as it relates to your experience as a coach is evident. As for me, I played all kinds of sports, was raised by a WWII Marine, and was a Bouncer all through College. I'm extremely familiar with toughness and a masculine environment. As for the tough love, we'll keep that in the home. No need for some bone head wanna be/never was to dish that out. You just stick to the X's and O's, Coach.

Respect is earned , and he has earned it with thousands of young men over the last 35 years. This kid ran to mommy. Hardly a hero!

All this chatter and I haven't heard ONE person with first hand information or interaction with this man say a negative word about him. Not ONE ex student say, it's about time. Just the opposite. Thousands standing up and telling their stories of the their time with him and what an influence he has had in their life. A lot of people objecting on principal , but no one has said a word negatively about him.

why are you so bent out of shape. no one is damaged except the coach. these kids hear worse on the buses every day between peers. should he have cursed no. should they behave yes. the point is was it warranted. seems extreme. seems they caved to parent pressure. what is done is done. he didn't do it because he knew he would get away with it. he obviously didn't. whatever the reason, kids are too soft. this is about coddling them. there is something to be said for taking your lumps. it builds character if anything. this isn't about a kid who saved all his teammates from a tyrant. that would be a hero. this is completely different. spin it however you want. the coach got a raw deal.

Ok your right. I guess your reading comprehension is off. Never said anything in my comment about coaching. No one said anything about bashing heads. Do you even know what he said. I have seen the video and it was not bad at all. Kids were horsing around on the bus after a loss. Guess your ok with the everyone getting participation trophies and even making sure everyone gets equal playing time in high school. Sounds like you played sports but probably didn't do well at them so this is ok with you. Also being a juice head bouncer isn't something to be proud of. You probably worked in one or two of the clubs I ran while I was in college. So odds are you worked for me. Lol. This explains a lot about your reading comprehension.

A good man was let go for caring about losing and the way the boys were acting after a loss. Yes he raised his voice said a few bad words but nothing to warrant being fired as a coach.

As for the tough love, we'll keep that in the home. No need for some bone head wanna be/never was to dish that out. You just stick to the X's and O's, Coach.


Ok your right. I guess your reading comprehension is off. Never said anything in my comment about coaching. No one said anything about bashing heads. Do you even know what he said. I have seen the video and it was not bad at all. Kids were horsing around on the bus after a loss. Guess your ok with the everyone getting participation trophies and even making sure everyone gets equal playing time in high school. Sounds like you played sports but probably didn't do well at them so this is ok with you. Also being a juice head bouncer isn't something to be proud of. You probably worked in one or two of the clubs I ran while I was in college. So odds are you worked for me. Lol. This explains a lot about your reading comprehension.

A good man was let go for caring about losing and the way the boys were acting after a loss. Yes he raised his voice said a few bad words but nothing to warrant being fired as a coach.[/quote]

We DEMAND second chances for our "perfect" children, but a proven an dedicated educator & coach mis-steps and he's shown the door?!

I don't have to wonder why kids these days have such an inflated sense of entitlement. Great job Chaminade PARENT. You just tarnished a great coach and wrecked your sons 4 years at a great school. Because if you don't think the KIDS will rally around this coach, you are sorely mistaken.

Pomps should sue Chaminade. And given that most buses now have video recordings, somebody should review the tape of the behavior of these sweet little mamma's boys.

Hey bouncer dad I bet you never played and competed at a any level , thus the bouncing profession in college .Maybe if you had a coach like Coach Pomp you wouldn't be in a bar you would have been on a field instead .I want someone to coach my son, push my son, teach him to never except losing , I'm the son of a marine that's what he instilled in myself and my brothers. Coach Pomps wants to win . Wants to coach wants to teach. X and Os are are only part of coaching ,anybody can walk around with a clipboard and high tube socks . Give me someone with passion,dedication, fire, spirit, you go with X and Os and see how that goes.
Look at the flyers and their results in the last 30 years he's been there . That "wanna be" has help guide some of the greatest athletes to come out of longIsland . Your the NEVER WAS ,he's done it . My bet is your no longer working the door at the Bar , your at the Bar regretting you were never the athlete you could have been .

So the kids got on the bus after losing a football game and ... moved on.

How are they supposed to act after losing a high school football game none of them will remember they even played?

So, having read through most of these comments, I have one question that should be obvious to any reasonable human being: why do so many people have such strong opinions about this *without having seen the video*? Isn't that just patently irrational?

Re: CHAMINADE Lacrosse. Stories and news. - 10/06/15 05:45 AM


I just heard this horrible news today. I am truly saddened. This decision has hurt the young men who will never get the Pomps experience. A guy that every kid connected with. He is straight up, honest, approachable, encouraging, passionate about the game, real guy, loved the sports he coached, loved the kids he coached. Awesome man who smiled cause he was happy doing what he did. How unfortunate that the future Chaminade boys are unknowingly being punished by not having access to a mentor like Pomps.

I guarantee he wasn't upset about losing. I bet he was pissed about the disregard for the discipline and hard work that goes into building a team, the lack of respect for your team and coaches by not caring, the individual selfishness vs the pride of family / team. I played for that man. I know how he's wired. I now coach my own children with the same passion and love and demand for "give it your best... no excuse" mentality that Pomps brought to work and taught everyday.

What words could he have possibly said that demanded such a punishment?? The passion, although maybe too much at that moment, IS the lesson to those young men. Teach them to be passionate, dedicated, driven to excellence, hard working, empowered, and focused. Losing is NOT okay. Compete to Win!! Don't be so cavalier about losing.

Playing for Pomps was a great time in my life and for so many guys I'm still friends with 27 years later. Chaminade is an amazing place. It breeds young men who are hungry to be great in many ways...in classrooms, on the fields, with your family. We left there ready, driven and hungry. Nothing was handed to us.

Chaminade got this one wrong. It is a worse place without Pomps on the field. That guy came to school everyday to teach so he could get out on that field in the afternoon. He loves those kids, they love him and the next generation will not know him because of this incident. Its wrong and unjust.

Boo Hoo, move on. I guess if the guy just grabbed a kid by the nape of the neck, or kicked one in the [lacrosse]... That would be ok too right? No big deal, kid was out of line. It's football right? Gotta be hard mother F'er. Ya know, because no Coach back in the day ever did that right? Maybe the brothers should start paddling the kids again too. Keep these kids in line, teach 'em what's what. Do you see why they removed him now? Lack of self control tends to escalate.

Chaminade hasn't been an amazing place for a while now. They have tons of money so they will stay relevant for as long as they want, but the world has caught on to them and in some ways caught up to them. This is just another sign that the golden era of Chaminade is over.

We'll all just take your word for that, OK?
Thanks for helping shed light on the subject of Chaminade's status.

The thousands of kids who attended the open house this weekend should have stayed home. The 16 Bloomberg terminals at the school (the only HS to have such a program) should be shut off. They should not proceed with the breaking of ground for the multi million dollar STEM Center this year. The significantly above average SAT scores and College enrollment will immediately cease. No future grad will ever be a success because you say Chaminade is no longer amazing and the golden era is over.

Thanks for your help on this.

That's right! That's why you don't yell at a kid on the bus when they are not behaving !
It all goes to [lacrosse]! (If the kid tells his mommy)

His point is culture , things change Times Change . I wouldn't want my son taping anyone , somebody earlier said that was a good thing. Fast forward years down the road how's he going to be remembered . everything could have been handled differently .

Honor code is one thing .taping is another . Good luck

Re: CHAMINADE Lacrosse. Stories and news. - 10/06/15 05:56 PM

YES, the kid taping him messed up, but who took this way out of control are the parents. Do they honestly now think they did the right thing? I'm sure they are wishing they could take it all back. It is the parents job to do what is right here and maybe they should have spoken to the coach, but not take it to the level it's at. I'm am sure this kid is hiding under a rock and wants to move to Alaska!

I guarantee he wasn't upset about losing.

I played for that man. I know how he's wired. I now coach my own children with the same passion and love and demand for "give it your best... no excuse" mentality that Pomps brought to work and taught everyday.

What words could he have possibly said that demanded such a punishment?? The passion, although maybe too much at that moment, IS the lesson to those young men. Teach them to be passionate, dedicated, driven to excellence, hard working, empowered, and focused. Losing is NOT okay. Compete to Win!! Don't be so cavalier about losing.

Playing for Pomps was a great time in my life and for so many guys I'm still friends with 27 years later. Chaminade is an amazing place. It breeds young men who are hungry to be great in many ways...in classrooms, on the fields, with your family. We left there ready, driven and hungry. Nothing was handed to us.

Chaminade got this one wrong. It is a worse place without Pomps on the field. That guy came to school everyday to teach so he could get out on that field in the afternoon. He loves those kids, they love him and the next generation will not know him because of this incident. Its wrong and unjust.






Chaminade hasn't been an amazing place for a while now. They have tons of money so they will stay relevant for as long as they want, but the world has caught on to them and in some ways caught up to them. This is just another sign that the golden era of Chaminade is over.


We'll all just take your word for that, OK?
Thanks for helping shed light on the subject of Chaminade's status.

The thousands of kids who attended the open house this weekend should have stayed home. The 16 Bloomberg terminals at the school (the only HS to have such a program) should be shut off. They should not proceed with the breaking of ground for the multi million dollar STEM Center this year. The significantly above average SAT scores and College enrollment will immediately cease. No future grad will ever be a success because you say Chaminade is no longer amazing and the golden era is over.

Thanks for your help on this.


Pretty easy to have above average SAT scores and College Enrollment when you only take the smartest kids to begin with. Relax, Chaminade is not taking an average academic kid and making him a scholar. They are taking scholars and reaping the benefits of their achievements. Achievements these same kids had before they went to the school, and would have had, had they never attended. Oh, and if you falter or struggle, you're out. When they start taking average kids and making huge improvements with those kids, let us know. Until then, stop spouting. Kind of like Hopkins saying we're great at Lacrosse because we're Hopkins. They are great because they have the best recruiting classes year in and year out. Still can't win a Championship, but that's another story completely.

Having been in attendance there when it was the best, I did(and still do) feel qualified to have written that most helpful and enlightening post. Re-read what I wrote (if you are capable of it) and put down your Kool-Aide. Critical thinking and observation of facts were things that were always taught. It seems to me that you are a daddy who has too much dad gear in his closet and you are trying too hard to protect your sizeable investment.


Your comment was simply one persons opinion and presented zero facts to back it up.
I replied with hard facts.

I'm very sure that you think the golden era of the past was golden because you were there way back then to enlighten everyone and thus make it "the best".

You should be glad that your Chaminade experience gives you the confidence to express that opinion. However, I question your capacity for critical thinking, and reserve the right to call BS when someone makes misleading generalizations that are not fact based.

You said you attended---- but did you graduate?

I also question your self bestowed qualifications. Unless you served in ww2 and are part of what most people call the greatest generation, I would suggest we are from rather similar eras,

As a grad from the mid 80"s, I have both an personal connection and also a realization that the recent crop of classes, both graduating and entering, are statistically more competitive than when I attended. One might take pride in having helped lay a strong foundation and contributed to progress.

Now that you have more to go with, would you care to provide some more enlightenment? Please just stick to the facts.

HOP, you missed the chance to be educated by men in dresses? In reality there are fewer and fewer "men of the cloth" at the school and the place is not run the way it used to be. It just isn't as good as a result. The school can cover up the wrinkles with facilities and services but the face still dhows the signs of aging.

Read the letter that the Coach from Yale just wrote to the administration and you will see you are wrong. Praised Pomps, Chaminade and the character of the men who graduate from there. Cham has had more captains at Yale than any other high school. Pomps is the only JV, yes ONLY JV, coach in the COUNTRY that Yale even speaks with. Yale recruits these boys primarily because of Pomps and the type of men that Chaminade graduates. These are good students and leaders of great character, and upstanding values. The men who teach there are dedicated whether they are of the cloth or not.
BTW, the boy who took the video has left the school (clearly not of the same character).

I'm sure Chaminade is an outstanding institution and it's alumni and students are better for having attended. With that said, keep the personal back and forths to a minimum as some of us don't care to read the novels some are posting.
Register and contact each other directly through our BOTC PM system. It's anonymous so you can still speak your mind.

That's nice of the Yale coach to stand up for Pomps but you are a bit off in your assessment. He is the only JV coach that college coaches will speak to because of the following:
1. Early recruiting
2. Chaminade is the only school that doesn't bring 9th and 10th graders up to varsity (or rarely does)

Therefore, the Chaminade JV coach is actually a more important recruiting resource than the Varsity coach. I'm sure the HC has a strong say, but most of his kids are done before they even put on a Varsity uniform these days.

These same JV kids would be on their Varsity teams if they stayed at their local public school and no college coach would be speaking to their JV coach about recruiting.

Re: CHAMINADE Lacrosse. Stories and news. - 10/07/15 02:31 PM

Why anyone would bash or knock Chaminade when it comes to being a prestigious school is beyond me. I have no irons in the fire and did not attend Chaminade, but the idea that it is not among the best HS's when it comes to academics, athletics and turning out successful young men is preposterous. What went from defending or castigating a defrocked JV lax coach has morphed into a full on assault on Chaminade. Wow...I know there are probably jealous folks out there, but this is way too much.

The letter is very strong, I read it (do not ask if I will share as I will not). Also Gerry Byrne from ND wrote a very strong letter on the petition.

What went from defending or castigating a defrocked JV lax coach has morphed into a full on assault on Chaminade. Wow...I know there are probably jealous folks out there, but this is way too much.



If you can read, no one is bashing. But the Chaminade defenders deny any suggestion that they are not perfect. It's always the case with them!

HOP, you missed the chance to be educated by men in dresses? In reality there are fewer and fewer "men of the cloth" at the school and the place is not run the way it used to be. It just isn't as good as a result. The school can cover up the wrinkles with facilities and services but the face still dhows the signs of aging.


Read the letter that the Coach from Yale just wrote to the administration and you will see you are wrong. Praised Pomps, Chaminade and the character of the men who graduate from there. Cham has had more captains at Yale than any other high school. Pomps is the only JV, yes ONLY JV, coach in the COUNTRY that Yale even speaks with. Yale recruits these boys primarily because of Pomps and the type of men that Chaminade graduates. These are good students and leaders of great character, and upstanding values. The men who teach there are dedicated whether they are of the cloth or not.
BTW, the boy who took the video has left the school (clearly not of the same character).


Where is the letter from yale?


The letter is very strong, I read it (do not ask if I will share as I will not). Also Gerry Byrne from ND wrote a very strong letter on the petition.


Why not share it? Especially after citing to it?

There are 3 current Head D1 Assistants who are all Chamiande Alum (gerry byrne being one of those, as was mentioned). All have written and spoken with the Administration at Chaminade and have echoed the voice of thousands of fellow alum (and other coaches within their profession). Like Coach Shay at Yale, they have expressed the impact that this Coach has had on the youngmen they too have had the opportunity to Coach.

No this site is not here for immature adults to slam each other. Especially in novel type length.
I also think it's ridiculous for adults to rank little kids travel teams or comment on their ability or lack thereof.
Some posters on here seem to live their lives through their eight year olds accomplishments on the lacrosse field...equally ridiculous.

Yes! Hope he is gone! Any Chaminade student (and in any other school I imagine) who records a teacher and posts to social media would be immediately expelled. Why shouldn't the same rules apply to this kid??

Typical kill the messenger tactic. The audio made its way to the administration. The administration took the action. But all you male pussixs want to pick on the kid. Rumor has it coach denied that anything happened then admin put audio on the table. The coach lied to admin.....so much for the stand-up guy....if he was so stand up he should have owned his mistake. Instead he lied about it. Sorry.....bye-bye.

TOTAL LIE. You don't know what you're talking about. So much for a stand up guy? He's one of the greatest coaches on Long Island. Look at the online petition and read what former athletes write about him. Pomps is an outstanding person and how dare you slander his name. Gross.

stop being a wash woman and post facts instead of rumors. If you knew the type of person that Coach Pomps is you wouldn't be defending the weasel that recorded him. Hope the kid has left the school - wouldn't want to be him and have to face my classmates and teachers knowing that I was responsible for a great man losing his coaching job!! Hope the parents of the kid who complained are pleased with what they've done - made their kid look like a whiney brat and robbed a team of being coached by one of the best! Good job!

With all of this support this man has within the lacrosse and coaching community I wonder what the other coaches that work with him on a day to day basis feel, I know that in my high school when a similar situation happened and the administration did not have the coaches back the entire coaching staff offered their resignation effective immediately and the administration backed down, if this guy is so loved (and I have never heard of him until this week) why don't all the coaches quit, all sports and I bet the administration would change their minds, the parents would force them too.

I almost feel sorry for the young man. Busting his nut for two years just to go back to public school. He is however somewhat a product of his environment though. The same type who videotape people just doing their jobs, you know, easy jobs, police, firefighters, EMS, etc. No stress there.
Good luck Pomps.

Stop with comments about a kid. Children are led by their parents. I feel badly for the kid also. If the kid showed his parents and they didn't have the sense to tell him to delete it it's their fault. I feel awful for the coach don't get me wrong but if he is half the man that I've read about this past week he wouldn't want any kid subjected to these further comments.

Adults need to think. So much pressure on these kids today . How would you feel if this spiraled out of control and these words hurt this kid further.

Re: CHAMINADE Lacrosse. Stories and news. - 10/09/15 03:07 AM

Obviously the Administration at Chaminade was uncomfortable enough to take the action they did. They obviously feel the man acted and behaved in a manner contrary to their beliefs. It also makes me think that there's way more to the story than maybe anyone knows, and I mean anyone. Just my opinion. I wonder if all of you people who are screaming from the roof tops about this man, would be as vocal for a student removed from the school under the same circumstances? I'm guessing not. Ask yourselves? If a 100 average kid had a one time meltdown and behaved towards a teacher in the exact same manner as this Coach behaved towards the kids, would that kid survive? I doubt it, surely he would be expelled. I feel bad for the Coach, but I think he put the school in bad position. If they take him back, what message does that send to the students? Think about it for a while...

What are you talking about? Are you trying to say five year old? Regardless, your missing the point. It's not about the kid, it's about the behavior of the adult that is inconsistent with Chaminades teachings, and the school having no choice. It's about the message that would be sent if they allow the Coach to return. Some things are bigger than the love of a Coach. Try to take your emotion out of it for a second. Where does the school go from here?

We are protecting our "children" from harsh talk?? Are you serious? The best is when your kids rebel from all you helicopter parents and let their own kids fend for themselves. Our society is weakened when 30 years of good work is tossed to the side because some coddled teenagers had their feelings hurt.

Chaminade isn't the best of the best in anything. They send masses of catholics to mediocre to upper catholic colleges and compile sports teams using 2000 kids from all over long island and they still lose to public schools.

not quite. They set the bar. Public schools have no conviction. Everyone is treated the same. No accountability. This is a hard lesson for some but at least they stand by their morals. This incident is unfortunate. Chamindade didn't teach this kid to do what he did. His parent did. A kid in public school would probably have it on utube by now and the teachers union would have cried fowl either way in this day and age everyone has to know they can be recorded at any moment.

They are the best because they are strong across the board. There are other schools with comparable or better academics and others with better individual teams. However, there is no school on LI that has the combination of top academics and top athletics across all teams....not just lax. Look at their athletic center, Bloomberg terminals, wrestling facility, TV studio, the yearbook they produce, volunteerism and on and on. If you hate Chaminade I get it, but then name me the LI school which surpasses them in ALL these areas.

do chickens cry fowl? learn that saying at Chammy?


I can only imagine where you learned to speak. couldn't get in could you?


Man was that easy to strike a cord with you all. I've written that same concept for years on this board and it works all the time. Don't be so insecure. Chammy is a good school, and on average produces good kids that go on to get good grades at good colleges and then they get good jobs. One last thing, let me get this straight, the kid you're all bashing, it's his parents fault, not the school's fault at what happened? There's some irony in your logic pal...and just so you know, his recording is bouncing around many devices these days, heard it numerous times.

not quite. They set the bar. Public schools have no conviction. Everyone is treated the same. No accountability. This is a hard lesson for some but at least they stand by their morals. This incident is unfortunate. Chamindade didn't teach this kid to do what he did. His parent did.

now I get it. I'm talking to a kid. All this time I thought I was talking to an adult. I would ask to have your parent respond but seeing how apples don't fall far from trees, I'll pass. And yes it is the parents fault in this particular situation.

^^^^^

In this particular situation because it happened to a Chammy kid? Give me a break. The kids at Chammy are just like all the other kids, there are great ones, good ones and bad ones. Some play sports, some do drugs, some drink alcohol, some fight, some curse, some work and get fired, stop putting the school on a false pedestal and let it go. If you have to defend/promote it all the time is it really so great?

They are the best because they are strong across the board. There are other schools with comparable or better academics and others with better individual teams. However, there is no school on LI that has the combination of top academics and top athletics across all teams....not just lax. Look at their athletic center, Bloomberg terminals, wrestling facility, TV studio, the yearbook they produce, volunteerism and on and on. If you hate Chaminade I get it, but then name me the LI school which surpasses them in ALL these areas.

Syosset to name one . Their academics are top in the country and you can't count the number of boys AND girls teams last year that won nassau, LI and state championships across all sports. Don't know what district you are from but I don't think you've been to many of the top districts if you don't think that they have programs and facilities that rival or surpass what Chaminade offers. You may be getting better than what you would have if you stayed in your public school but not many neighboring public schools , sorry. If you want to argue that you are sending your son for the catholic education we won't get in Public schools I totally respect that but not the academic /sports argument .

I can't say Ivy's are a pull for everyone and ideally they don't really match up with a student with conservative views, which you are more likely to find at Chaminade. Furthermore, because the demand is so great and only a small percentage are offered admission, that alone makes it elite as they can and do take top students in all aspects of life- not just in the class room, but the fields, arts etc. The biggest draw is the alumni connections and the willingness to help out a fellow alumni. Connections can mean far more than a degree from an Ivy, especially considering most kids go to very competitive schools. It might not be for all families and not all kids can make the cut, but it certainly doesn't hurt to graduate from Chaminade.

^^^ three above

You Chammy parents never cease to amaze me. So Ivy league schools don't take Chammy kids because of their conservative views? And the alumni network and connections you make at Chammy are better than you obtain at an Ivy? And does it hurt to graduate from anywhere? Amazing that such an above-average institution feels the need to call itself elite. And btw, anyone with half a brain can gain admission.

It is an inequitable comparison to compare Chaminade to a Public. Chaminade does not admit average students, and make them great student. They only admit great students and take credit for their successes. Nor do they admit kids with learning disabilities, ESL, behavioral problems, ADD, Dyslexia, illegal immigrants, or any other kid with any other issue. Publics, on the other hand, need to educate all of the above in their district. So please, stop with all Chaminade greatness. A collection of great kids, that would have been successful at their own school districts. Nothing more.

Agreed 100%. Chaminade kids no doubt are very bright young men. I also have absolutely no doubt they are the type of young men who would each excel and succeed in their own public high schools. Just like some athletic teams have an embarrassment of riches athletically so goes Chaminade academically.

This site is filled with parents wanting their kids to play lacrosse with the best team they can yet you don't understand parents wanting their children to learn with other smart kids and in a school environment where they don't have to take everyone and focus on learning at a higher level. Some of the reasons I'm glad that my son attends this school is because the feeling at my particular public school is sports is the priority and the kids run the building and use their cell phones all day. I don't believe in that environment my child would have as much success.

Yet they still manage to print championship banners on a regular basis. Football, Lacrosse boys/girls as well as field hockey. Depending on the year, you can add both soccer programs. Would be even better if they could keep more of the delusional parents that ship their boys off to Chaminade!!!!

They send masses of catholics to mediocre to upper catholic colleges and compile sports teams using 2000 kids from all over long island and they still lose to public schools. The only ones who think that chaminade is the best of the best are the parents that send their kids to the school, just ask them.


They are the best because they are strong across the board. There are other schools with comparable or better academics and others with better individual teams. However, there is no school on LI that has the combination of top academics and top athletics across all teams....not just lax. Look at their athletic center, Bloomberg terminals, wrestling facility, TV studio, the yearbook they produce, volunteerism and on and on. If you hate Chaminade I get it, but then name me the LI school which surpasses them in ALL these areas.




Garden City!


Hardly.

Sincerely,
Garden City Resident (who's kid goes to Chaminade)


Ha, that's funny. But not true--yet anyway. GC is way overrated. The buildings are embarrassing and the athletic facilities sub par compared to other neighboring districts. [/quote

Yet they still manage to print championship banners on a regular basis. Football, Lacrosse boys/girls as well as field hockey. Depending on the year, you can add both soccer programs. Would be even better if they could keep more of the delusional parents that ship their boys off to Chaminade!!!!


nothing delusional about sending your kids to Chaminade.

The St Anthonys/ Chaminade lacrosse phenomena mirrors the travel teams growth. So I can pay to have my son be part of a winning organization regardless if its the B,C, or D team or 2nd, 3rd or 4th string? I'm in. After all its about me the parent getting to brag to my friends about who my son plays for. If it was about my son, he would play with his friends at the local high school or be a stud helping to bring one of the lower private schools back to competitiveness.

Totally generalizing everyone, you are not correct! Why are you so concerned with where people send their kids? My has attended parochial school since he was in pre-k, so the majority of his friends attend catholic school!
I really don't see the point of your comment!

It's all about getting your kid on the field if he wants to play.. Watching will not get him better so besides the education part which only Chaminade stands out your kids should go to a smaller school and show something

Not sure where this is going only that you feel kids left your town for StA's or Chammy for lacrosse only and you don't think they will get field time. What towns did the catholics impact where it makes a difference to the town HS.

That's a nasty dig against the other Catholic schools and their academics. What makes Chaminade's academics so superior? Are their courses different somehow?

"Chaminade football tearing it up this year."

Were you the same guy who posted last year after Chaminade won the Catholic league championship in basketball, hockey, baseball and lacrosse?

Keep in mind that Chaminade requires students to perform well on an entrance exam to gain admission. You get more chess players than offensive linemen. (Cue the idiots who are going to say the test isn't that hard, etc........)

I think the Senior and Junior class will have something to say.... Do you think last year's MVP of the Championship game, the future ND goalie and many more are not ready? I think the 10 D1 commits of the Junior class will fit in nicely with the seniors

SJB hires a St Anthony's guy. Maybe the start of bringing a program back that has been bad for over 25 years.

Really is no need to waste time responding to Chaminade haters...they will never get it and it just gives people time to vent to your response here...don't bother...I did not go there and have a daughter so we have no connection to Chaminade other than friends and relatives...but anyone who objectively cant acknowledge what a fine institution it is, is not worth responding to. Sure, ALL schools have bunch of self absorbed, dbag parents and alumni...and Chaminade is certainly no different. So move on bashers and pick another topic to rail against.

I'm not sure that is best education philosphy, although it might be a good religious philosophy.

The insecurity of chaminade parents is sad, spend so much time telling everyone how great it is. great organizations stand on their own, don't need constant bragging to reinforce their standing. Nobody is that impressed with chaminade except the parents that send their kids there, which isn't difficult to do - above average to get in and not expensive. Can't hold a candle to real private schools.

I went to a real private school and trust me- academics are a lot harder and valued at Chaminade. Private schools are full of wealthy parents that buy their kids into better schools and out of trouble. My friends would have been better off in a public school or an institution like Chaminade. The one thing that they both have in common- the exclusivity of being on the inside. You only know the real deal if you are part of it and quite frankly, no one on the inside cares what others truly think. If you truly don't give a damn about Chaminade and you feel it's worthless, than why waste time and energy putting it down? The Chaminade families know what they have, the private schools know what they have. Anyone can go to public school and find out what they have- and that's the difference- public is just that- open to all. Are there some great ones? Sure are! I think public school can be great for most. That said, there must be something that makes Chaminade the most competitive school on LI. If it wasn't all that, the numbers would have declined and other schools woukd be pulling the top candidates. As for the cost- who cares that it is less expensive than the elite prep schools? Regis is free, so does that make it less prestigious than others?

Chaminade is not the most prestigious school on LI. I've yet to see an Intel finalist, or for that matter semifinalists come out of there. I've also seem many graduates go to Hofstra. That's not prestigious.

When has anyone claimed anything about Chaminade in relation to these three other schools?

I certainly don't know anyone who would argue that Chaminade would "beat" any of these schools in a head-to-head comparison, at least not one based on any academic metrics.

first of all, you have no idea who is posting what. second of all, there is way more bashing than bragging going on. no need to bash if you are content with your own choices.

You do realize that a bunch of the comments on this thread and the entire forum probably come from kids ages 12-15. Do not assume you are going back and forth with an adult and when you do post, think about if you would want to speak to a kid that way, because there is a good chance that is who you are responding to.

Post Syosset's roster from last year amd list all of the schools the seniors are going to and make sure you include the kids who did not step on the field and compare to Chaminade roster. Then look at the top, lets just use 8 teams in the country and see how many Syosset players are on the rosters compared to Chaminade.

One more comparison. Take the roster from 2 years ago and see if those Syosset kids are still at the schools they went to as freshmen and comapre to Chaminade.

That is an interesting one because I know you won't like what you see

Chaminade cannot compete with the top publics. Do we really need to remind you of the beatings they took last true lax season? Hint? WM
Next year will be worse. You better hope you don't meet up with Syosset, will be ugly!

Look, Chaminade is a good school and has a decent lacrosse program but when you start throwing around words like "elite, best, etc" then be prepared for a response. Especially from a best in class academic and lacrosse program like Syosset's. A public school, gasp.......

Same thing for the Chammy grads who play lacrosse at the Service Academies. Not a lot of time for U19 tryouts there. How many lax kids from your kid's school go (or have gone) to one? We have many.

Re: CHAMINADE Lacrosse. Stories and news. - 12/02/15 04:43 PM

U19 TRYOUTS WERE A JOKE. If you were not attending one of the coaches schools you were on the outside looking in. There were kids that didn't even tryout for what ever reason that made the team because they are attending the school of the coach. This was the worst selection process and they should be ashamed.

I guess Duke, ND, Maryland, Yale coaches thought the Chaminade kids were good enough to take them over your guys

So sad that you are hooked on a scrimmage.... So then why don't you tell them the JV score from the scrimmage? What happens when the 11 D1 commits (Juniors) from the JV team go play on Varsity this year? Move on and good luck to you.....

Pillars of virtue! NOT! Chaminade is a big business. Selling Chaminade-ade. We all know what they would do to protect their reputation. Protection of the franchise at all costs.

Massapequa beat up on Chaminade last year, but Syosset and Chaminade didn't play in 2015. Would be awesome if they could schedule a game for this coming year, though.

But still not good enough to beat Syosset (16-4) and THAT was the whole point from the beginning.

You might be surprised.

Syosset lost a lot of talent from last year with departing seniors that doesn't seem to be matched with its up and coming underclassmen, and Chaminade is bringing up a very talented, strong, inclusive and cohesive group of Juniors to their varsity roster.

Massapequa JV was beaten soundly by Chaminade JV last season. That same Chaminade talent will create a much stronger varsity team than the one that played Massapequa varsity last year.

Re: CHAMINADE Lacrosse. Stories and news. - 12/07/15 04:10 PM

Unfortunately - people continue to believe that scores in scrimmages actually matter so someone is implying that Syosset's win in a scrimmage last year justifies a win over Chaminade which is just not the case - a total high school thing that never would be mention in college or the pros..... as for Chaminade JV beating Pequa - that is totally ridiculous as well because Cham does not allow underclassmen to play up while Pequa will not hesitate to take up a ninth or 10th grader to varsity if capable. So Cham JV plays a weakened Pequa JV team and Pequas young guns playing up are in theory improving at a greater rate - therefore I believe comparing Chaminade's JV to any strong strong public JV is a waste of time....

With all due respect, your assumption is way off base. I don't think the current Chaminade senior class is weak by any stretch of the imagination. On the contrary, they are excellent players. I do believe, however, that the chemistry on varsity this year between the Seniors and Juniors is MUCH stronger than what varsity had last season. There is a certain je ne sais quois with the two classes together that has created a very strong bond.

10 upper-classmen (junior and seniors for those who don't understand) goalies, many committed, trying out for Chaminade Varsity this year. 10! where else does that happen?

the junior class has not lost a game in three years at the school. that competition and the superior-to-public-school-education is why Catholic parents send their boys there. seems to work well. don't like the Chaminade thread, leave. you won't be missed.

Hypothetical..you don't play everyone so the goal would be to just win your league..The kids that play on these high school teams play on a travel team that the HS team can't even come close to competing against ..so all this talk is just that talk and means absolutely nothing

If your kid has no "Moral Compass" then look at the parents, not the school. If you think by the time they are heading in to HS you can send them to Chaminade for direction in life, then you just don't get the joke. Because the joke is on you.

The number of hours of homework does not reflect the quality of the education. Quantity is very misleading. That basically tells me the kids do more learning outside of the classroom than inside.

Having gone to one of the elite privates myself, there is nothing elite about them either. Private elite schools are pricey and have wealthy families, thus networking is the key draw. Education is average and many teachers are not as qualified or experts in their field because the pay is sub par to a LI public teacher salary. That said, my teachers were passionate and I remain in touch with many today. Furthermore, while money can buy a lot of great experiences, build new libraries etc. public schools have state of the art facilities in many of the LI districts. They also bring in the most qualified and in demand teacher's as they pay the highest. The academics are no better in a private school. The one difference I saw back then was service to the community. Public schools lacked in this area but many are now adding that to their curriculum, especially schools with special diploma programs. Don't get me wrong- private was great- but it's not elite- just the price tag. Chaminade and many publics are easily on par or better than privates, especially concerning academics. What I think people like Chaminade for is the religious, all boys, rigorous program. Kids are taught in order to succeed you must work hard and there is a lot of homework and tests. It is academically competitive throughout the school and not just the top 20 percent, like a public school. If you are an excellent student with good work values, you can get the same experience in a public school minus the single sex. Public school academics can get muddled with behavior issues during class time, which does happen. Kids aren't all as invested because not everyone cares to be a top student- that's what makes Chaminade a bit different academically. You need to know your kid and should chose a school that fits your kid as a whole.

The above may be the best most accurate post in the history of this board. My experience was identical to the poster's.

Everyone I know whose kid goes there is rich and privileged if that is what you mean by "elite". Never heard of anyone being rejected so that isnt exactly "elite".

He will be better adjusted as an ivy commit as a result
Nothing wrong about chaminade if that is what your kid wants but stop fooling yourself if you think that the school is among the elite on Long Island


Yeah, recognizing other "Cultures" really worked out for us. My son couldn't wait to LEAVE our school district. I think we'll stick with Chaminade,,,,,,


Sounds a little racist to me...is that what you are teaching your kid?

That is exactly what he is saying.
You can only keep your kid sheltered in your all boys religious world for so long
They it will be welcome to the real world. Good luck

Exactly. Because those Chaminade grads are doing so poorly at those top tier colleges and professionally. They go to more diverse settings and completely melt down. You are so on point.

Agree. Typical anti-Catholic school nonsense. If more people on this site and in life followed the simple good standards that the catholic schools teach we would all be better off.

Yup, just as I figured, elitist and racist. You must be great fun on the admissions committee at the club Judge Smails.

Please pull the plug on this thread already. It has become absurd and has nothing to do with Chaminade lacrosse or any lacrosse for that matter. Unfortunately it has everything to do with insecure parents (perhaps with some 12 yr old boys mixed in) arguing over the perceived merits of public school versus a private Catholic school. I, and perhaps many others, could care less where some random parent sends their kid to high school. I am interested in lacrosse. The commentary here is 90% idiotic and uninformed. Enough already. Chaminade is a great school and many publics are great schools as well. There are arrogant, insecure parents on both sides of the fence. We good now? Can we move on? Back to lacrosse please!!!!!

Just delete everything and start again. If a poster appears to be a current Syosset varsity or Chaminade freshman team parent, just insta-delete.

Back on topic: Big surprise (I know, I know, Suffolk A league limitations and all that), but once again Chaminade and St. Anthony's appear to have by far the most impressive schedules in all of New [lacrosse]. Discuss...

Will Chaminade play Soyosset? Only way we can settle this. Hope so, although I don't think chaminade will agree, too risky!

Chaminade does not back down from any program. If they can schedule they do. Both programs coaches are good friends and that is why they always scrimmage. If Chaminade was so worried about winning they would not schedule a game the day or should I say morning after their so called prom every year.
Let Syosset or any public school play Chaminades schedule year in and year out and see how many wins they get. They don't have the schools where they can pad the stats

Remember these are still kids playing and it is tough to get the kids through a year with no loss. Congrats to those who pulled it off job well done

So far, Chaminade has Manhasset, St. Ignatius (CA), Delbarton, Greenwich, Yorktown, Massapequa. St. Anthony's has Greenwich, Delbarton, Syosset, Yorktown, Darien, New Canaan. Should be another fun year.

Those are both insanely tough schedules. Notice the glaring school missing here? No Garden City on either. The Chammy / GC bad blood continues. What a shame they don't play each other.

Seriously, you Syosset people need to get a grip. Congrats on building a great program, but get over yourselves already. Do u honestly believe Chaminade is afraid of playing you? You are delusional. Go home, put some more Igloo stickers on your Escalade and settle down.
