So many teams in this age group are going to be really good.

So do you see a shift coming in the age to a little more physical play? My oldest is in this so this is new to me. I noticed some kids getting a little more physical this year, mainly some of the bigger kids. I'm not complaining, just asking if this is where it is "allowed" to start coming out more? Thanks

I started playing my son up to 6th grade this year because he has gotten a lot better stick skills and faster. This is a good age to test the physicalness of the kids. In my opinion.

His only dream was to beat the Bandits.

Is it true that BM is out with Honey Badgers and no longer coaching or affiliated with the team? His choice or pushed out by Express and if true, is he coaching a new team this season?

Whether or not he left on his own or was asked to leave is irrelevant. That kind of instability is going to hurt the team. Wherever he goes, a few boys will likely follow. I've heard of a few of the other boys moving to other teams even before is announcement. Looks like the #2 slot is up for grabs next year.

BM was told to leave. Then tried to take team with him but according to a few there were no takers. He is claiming the HB name so for all of you who dreamed of having a child on the badgers there are plenty of spots available!!!! Next thing you know he'll be begging for express to take him back. How pathetic. Maybe the Bandits will take him

Was told he left after a blowout with other coach. The Honey Badger name has always been an issue with the Express guys so I imagine it eventually was the straw.

Why would BM be told to leave? Doubt the rumor. His passion is to beat the Bandits. The Express parents don't know what's going on. AJ is second in command and he'll be next.

If you don't know why BM was asked to leave then you never played HB saw what was happening on the sidelines. It was a disgrace. The boys succeeded despite him. Good for them

What an inaccurate statement. Check your facts before spewing your stupidity. I guess it's easy to throw a whole bunch of nonsense out there to see what sticks when you're able to do so behind a cloak of anonymity.

That is spot on. I saw them play Igloo late in season and he was nuts on the sideline.
So where is BM going with the HB name? Need to make sure I don't pay for that tryout.

Why is the True Blue website not updated since year 2014? They haven't announced fees, how many practices, who the coaches are, tournaments, etc. And they are asking to have you sign up and pay money for tryouts? Somebody from True Blue please explain.

I suggest that you register and sign in and ask this question in the Tryout thread. It is doubtful that anyone from True Blue will see it here. If you have reasonable questions, which it appears that you do, post them in the correct thread.

So Seth Tierney himself will coach the 2023 team? Or is he just the Director of the program and we will see someone else at practices? Coaches make a huge difference for any team. Just want to know what I would be getting if my son made the team.

Planning to do a few tryouts keeping all options open. Problem is a lot of the tryouts are on same weekend and some overlap times completely. So sorting through what is best option. One criteria coming down to who is coaching. A lot of uncertainty and drama out there on 2023.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2023-5th Grade Fall 2015 Summer 2016 - 08/10/15 06:28 PM
The 2 best coaches for this grade are probably the 91 Bandits and True Blue. The Bandits are coached by a MLL Coach and TB is coached by a college Coach. The Outlaws have a lot of good coaches but I don't know who coaches this grade.

Irrelevant? True Blue has JC from Adelphi University coaching! Anyone in the Lax world would tell you he is a great coach. Just look at his 2017 team and all the big time recruits he has. Let me guess your kid plays on some big name team with a coach that played somewhere in college but has Zero coaching background? Good luck with that. This person asked about great coaching not big name teams.

Thought long and hard about this upcoming year. My kid is a 3 sport athlete and unless we have him truly focus on lacrosse and play year round, he will be delegated to a "B" team. We are going to forgo any tryouts and play with our town team which happened this year. We will take some beatings, but at least he will play with the kids who he will end up in HS with and get coached by our HS coaches. No more BS playing for teams that are in it for the money.

Finally a parent that has a clue. Why pay these guys a lot of $ so your kids can have swag from these elite programs so you the parents can say We play for so and so..Remember you dont play. Your kid plays. Have them try out for a travel program in 7th/8th grade when it mattters. Play as many sports as they can when they are young.

What about the other teams? I know you guys aren't a fan of some teams, but to censor comments kind of makes you seem petty and, more importantly, it hurts the credibility of this site. It very disappointing. You're changing the comments of others to support your agenda.

Coaching is the most important decision. At the end of the year you want your kid to be a better player than when he started.

Express is a mess with BM leaving. It seems like that program is having a lot of problems recently. 91 Bandits best by far last year. Legacy True Blue and Igloo will all be very good A Division teams this year. Igloo gets a new coach this year so not sure how that is going to play out.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2023-5th Grade Fall 2015 Summer 2016 - 08/11/15 04:43 PM
Igloo not solid either. New coach. Unproven. No assistant named yet although rumors are not positive. It will be interesting to see how many players stick around or jump to teams with stronger foundation/coaching.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2023-5th Grade Fall 2015 Summer 2016 - 08/11/15 04:48 PM
2023 Outlaws are coached by the Outlaws Owner and Director. They also have a very experienced Father/Coach, and are adding a DII National Champion Defensive Coach this year.

Wait, I thought Santa was coaching IGLOO because the boys need someone to nurture them, and not be so darn negative. Santa knows the 1-3-2 motion offense.

Tierney will not be showing up. All of the other start ups had the same thing, great Director, but no support. It's all about the money and taking advantage of the growing lax scene. Who are the coaches for Bluefish?

It certainly can't hurt to tryout for Bluefish. Hopefully Bluefish gets a good showing at tryouts, my son will definitely be much better off surrounded by talented players rather than playing for his current wannabe travel team, the talent just isn't there. I'm confident there will be quality coaches for Bluefish.

Haha you are funny just another s##t stirrer - unfortunately there will always be an unhappy daddy trying to live through his son complaining about some coach or their son- my advise to anyone is to try out for a few clubs, while there speak to the other parents and ask questions about what the club offers, talk to the "coaches" at the try outs and make a decision based on your needs not on which team claims to be the best or has the nicest helmet wraps, then most of all TALK to your son and ask him how he feels about who he tried out with and what he wants. Good luck to all - it's a roller coaster ride enjoy it because it's over quickly.

The advantage some new teams may have is people are sick of the turmoil on what are supposed to be the established clubs. The money grab, revolving door of coaches and players is tiring. Maybe someone with a new perspective will get it right.

Stop fishing!!!!

You can bash igloo and express all you want. No turmoil. One coach is leaving each team. There will still be plenty of kids at tryouts.

Talking about a money grab. Why do you think these new pop up programs are starting up? They see the $$ the others are making and are trying to get some for themselves. There is no new perspective.

Any "A" player that goes to one of the new start up clubs is setting themselves back a full year+
Nice try though.

But at a fraction of the cost. Igloo & Express & Legacy are all losing their A team's head coach. Outlaws has their director stepping in to help theirs, which is even worse. You,re telling me that everything is going to be peachy over at these clubs? Who,s stay with the team? Who's following the coach? Who is the new coach? Where will he want to practice? These are a lot of serious questions when you're considering dropping $2k-$3k+ on a team. If Bluefish or another team are coming in at 1/2 that and giving gloves helmets, etc... People will try it. I'd hate to be a Honey Badger parent right now. That team was really good and everyone is jumping ship. Same with Legacy. I'm not saying a new club will be better, but the only guarantee with a lot of clubs is the high price tag.

Any "A" player that goes to one of the new start up clubs is setting themselves back a full year+
Nice try though.

Spoken like a a Director from a sub par "A" club.

Igloo's coach went or was put on another team - so what
Express coach left or went to another team -so what
Outlaws coach has been the same since they started and not changingd - so what
The point is that the kids at this age make the team and make the coach look and as the kids mature into adults they get better with good coaching.

But at a fraction of the cost. Igloo & Express & Legacy are all losing their A team's head coach. Outlaws has their director stepping in to help theirs, which is even worse. You,re telling me that everything is going to be peachy over at these clubs? Who,s stay with the team? Who's following the coach? Who is the new coach? Where will he want to practice? These are a lot of serious questions when you're considering dropping $2k-$3k+ on a team. If Bluefish or another team are coming in at 1/2 that and giving gloves helmets, etc... People will try it. I'd hate to be a Honey Badger parent right now. That team was really good and everyone is jumping ship. Same with Legacy. I'm not saying a new club will be better, but the only guarantee with a lot of clubs is the high price tag.

True; however, if I'm a parent with a child on one of those teams, I'm probably not going to bring my kid back. Badgers were well within striking distance at the end of the season. Now they will be middle of the road. Parents are starting to realize the agendas of these teams are not honorable. The coaches are just as bad. People will have different opinions, but I'm going with stability. My son's coach is great. Not a daddy coach. And, more importantly, he's not going anywhere.

Which Club? Totally agree. People are sick of the high priced drama and jerking around 10 year old boys. Consistency is going to be a big factor moving forward. And if people can save a grand or two along the way. All the better. The constant drive for being "the best" will be the downfall of many teams/Clubs. There is a lot to be said for happy players and happy sidelines. My guess is those are the clubs that will make the long haul.

Igloo lost coach, yes, but has another very qualified guy taking over. All of their players will be back trying out and they look to have a lot of other good players coming to tryouts. I wouldn't be worried about Igloo.

Nor would I worry about Express A (formerly Honey Badgers). The also have all of their kids coming back to tryouts and it sounds like the also have a bunch of other kids coming to tryout for the team. Their coaching staff is the same except that crazy guy BM who yells and tries to fight everyone is gone. No real loss, the other guy who was the co-head coach was the talent anyway.

So expect Igloo and Express to both be BETTER this year not worse. I don't know why people are writing that. BUT...... There is only one team that is at the top.

I don't know many people at Igloo, but the one I did hear from said that a bunch of their players are trying out for other clubs. I know several Express guys and all of their kids are trying out for others, hoping to find a better home. The coach was only part of the reason. Two are coming over to my son's team. Before you say that tryouts didn't happen yet, be realistic. You seem to know how the game works. Either way, I'm not concerned with my son's team being the best. But his coach is great and his team was very successful. Most importantly, he loves it and gets better every practice. Good luck to all, whatever you decide.

When he does its only for 40 minutes. Practice is on field behind his house. Only coaches offensive plays then leaves. My favorite is watching him on his cell phone the wholegame at tournaments.

The best thing for parents to do is to take their boys to tryouts, talk to the coaches, and see if the new boys who show up will make the team better. If you play for a solid club and the teams attracting better players it will all work out.

It's the wonderful world of travel lacrosse. Nothing new. Usually the player poaching happens at the tournaments when coaches ask for players names! And it gets better every year.

New teams will try to entice coaches to their program by giving them "director" status and a piece of the pie if they bring kids with them. They are all doing it. It's up to the parents to make a decision based on the overall program and its history.

For the clubs and coaches it's a business. The parents buy into the hype and shop their kids around. No one steals them.

New temas means maybe things get watered down, but you know what? Everyone has a place/chance to play. A teams, b teams, c teams. We quickly forget about kids playing a game. Unfortunately its a game wrapped up in a business. Bluefish for example is a new nassau team which is needed i would guess. If parents use logic they need to and ahve a right to ask questions and as paying customers have a right to answers and clubs backing up what they say. I dont know about everyone else but this adds up to a pricey endeavor.

My son is going to play for his town team again. Great group of kids/families, graet coaches. Maybe next year or a couple years he'll want to try out for a travel team. Rught now he is happy and having fun where he is, and has time for 3 other sports, school, video games, volunteering, etc.

Actually both original coaches are gone DK and Lizards coach were the assigned coaches at the start. Lizards coach jumped ship early on and DK got pushed out. At years end it was a typical 3 grand bait and switch with zero accountability from AA. Told you getting a Benz but received a Kia for Benz $$$$. New coach doesn't have same pedigree as original staff but price hasn't gotten lower.

I have heard this as well. Most Huntington kids leaving their teams to play for Greys. The hope is to make a super PAL team and their high school program stronger.

Correct. I said most not all. If it was all kids than it would be just the PAL team. They will need a few others from outside towns to round out the roster. You think the Huntington High School coach doesn't have the big picture of his future teams in mind.

Not true. I know for a fact that at least 10 players from the top A teams ( and good players on those teams) will playing for All Greys this year. Once word gets out, I bet other players will tryout. This team will compete with igloo,Outlaws and express right away.

Not sure what your laughing at. Did you see igloos offense last year? Do you know which players are returning to igloo,Outlaws and express? Too many of these teams are cauht up in the hype of apparel and empty promises. Too many coaching changes. The coaching on igloo and Outlaws (Outlaws had good parent coach) was sub par at best.This entire grade is in a major transition right now. If you don't agree, I'm wasting my time here. If ANY of the "A" teams lose 4-5 players, their team will suffer which is why they will all be competitive this year. The only true "A" team in this grade is 91.

Never happen. They will get a heavy dose of Huntington and some surrounding areas. Unfortunately for them, the stronger players will continue to gravitate to the stronger clubs.

Thats ok most of the kids if not all didn't get much playing time so they will leave and probably not missed- No big deal - the teams will always loose and add players every year. Good luck to all at tryouts

I wouldn't put anyone at the number 3 spot. Until Outlaws, Legacy, Igloo, and Express all play each other, there will be the top team (who's name won't be mentioned) and everyone else. Just because they play one good game against a team missing 2 of their 3 top middies doesn't put them above anyone. Who else have they played?

The problem with so called "elite" teams and why there is so much movement year to year is why would an a or a- player want to play on an "elite" team and have to fight for playing time when they can go to most other teams and have no issues with playing time at all. It's common sense, I don't understand why people can't grasp this concept.

I agree. I think the days of 2-3 elite teams are over. Parents and players are getting smarter. New clubs are forming because people see HOW much money these sub par clubs make. There are sooooo many great coaches NOT at these "elite" programs. 5 years ago if you weren't on an "elite" team, you would go un-noticed. Not the case anymore...STOP wasting your money on apparel and swag. Pay for coaching.

Agree. Parents are tired of paying thousands to an "elite" club team, spending thousands traveling to tournaments, to watch their children play 5 minutes of lacrosse. For what-- the glory to say you were there? People are growing tired of it. Free tshirts only go so far.

I'm willing to do all that in order to have my team hat and car sticker and walk around tournaments like a big shot and brag to my colleagues at work about all the tournaments my kid's team wins.

Beware of the one off teams. Generally they consist of parents who are disgruntled and motivated to protect #1. In the long run you want to be with a team associated with a solid infrastructure and the ability to attract good players and families. You don't want to be searching for a new team every other year.

Team 1 - AJ (no change)
Team 2 - Mike Chanenchuk Jr.

First tryouts in the books for 2023 outlaws. 60 % of last years team was not there. I guess some not returning and vacations. Very hot on the field and the kids played very tired. Not enough breaks so evaluations can be to accurate. Speaking of evaluators, somemof them looked like high school kids, which another parent said was his son and friends. Most evaluators were not paying attention half the time, they were done by the scrimmage. Tryout ended early because hey ran out of drills I guess. They told the boys that 60- 70 kids signed up, maybe there were thirty five there today. Emails to come on Monday and they are having two teams. Not a good representation of play today in an 1 hour 10 minute tryout. Tough if you had a bad day or heat got to you. On to the next tryout.

Wow 60 %.... and another parent said..... and you ran all the way home to post this at 130..............get a grip - how would you know who did or didn't show up. Im sure the outlaws along with every other org. starting tryouts will be just fine - you are just another one stirring the crap pot.

No, I'm just another parent who is tired of the Bull that PB represents. We've got 3 more tryouts with other teams we're looking forward to. Done with this team!
Three more try outs, rather busy this summer? Just to clarify.
21 of the 22 Kids that played last year are registered for tryouts. 50 total now, and should be 60-65 when all said on done. We will field 2 Solid teams at 2023. One High school kid(My son , Warming up goalies). Finished a little early because it was close to 100 degrees and a few kids were not feeling well.
Thanks to all 350 Kids/Parents that showed up for all try outs yesterday. All e mails going out Mon/Tuesday.
PB

You're off base a little with those expectations. Two parents, at least, already moving to my sons team. Good players, too. I'm sure there won't be a major exodus, but realistic expectations would be to lose 4-5. My two buddies and a few to follow coach.

I'm a HB parent and the talent and skills are there because of the countless hours that man put in since the beggining. Something tells me if your a parent who thinks otherwise; you're both very ungreatful and probably a kid who wasn't going to make the team this year.

Wow thank goodness my kids doesn't play on the HB with this parent. Amazing that you bash the efforts of a guy who just spent the
Last few years developing those kids into a very good team. I always hear that you practice 3/4 days a week and all winter long yet you still show no respect.

BM was and is a great coach. He is tough, demanding, and fun, and constantly, constantly trying to make the kids better. AJ was and is a great coach. He is tough, demanding, and fun, and constantly, constantly trying to make the kids better. I have no doubt that both BM and AJ, both talented coaches, will further develop their teams and have successful seasons.

Yeah, they take anybody who tries out. If you currently play for a town PAL team, come on down and try out. Your kid will get on their "A" team and get some more playing time.

There should be a bunch of open spots on this team with the head coach leaving, I assume 4-5 players leave with him and 4-5 leave b/c he is leaving. Should be interesting to have that many open spots on a top team

In regards to the 2023 Outlaws, I felt there were many talented kids in attendance. Sure anyone could make up an excuse of why their child did not play up to their potential, but it was 90 degrees for everyone. My gripe was receiving an email stating my son was invited to play for the "black" team only to receive a follow up email 2 hours later stating the black team was the B team and the A team is now called "select". If my memory serves me correct, the A team for outlaws was named "black". I told my son before tryouts that he could play only if he made the A team. It is my philosophy that there are no "b teams" in life, so if you settle for less than the best, you are selling yourself short. It sucked to break the news to him, but hopefully he will strive to improve for the next team's tryout.

Interesting statements. But if you knew more you'd be able to explain why not a single HB player agreed to go with BM when he was let go. The lies and deceit finally caught up with him. He made many calls to parents and had a parent meeting yet not a single one is following to his new club. That speaks VOLUMES.

So explain that one since you seem to know everything. Clearly there is something very wrong there because many of these families were with that team for multiple years.

How would anyone know who is going to stay and who is leaving until tryouts are over? People have free will and I am sure a couple will leave with or without coaching problems. AJ is a great player but as a coach TBD

You my man are a tool and are doing your son a tremendous disservice. There are plenty of fine coaches who coach the second team in some organizations and one of these coaches may connect with your son. It's not how the race starts but how it finishes and regardless of the impetuousness of college coaches recruiting middle schoolers 5th grade is still young to poison your sons brain. As long as your boy stays passionate and continues to understand the game the right way everything works itself out.

Why is he a tool. Because he is teaching his son to always strive for excellence. Their are many teams out there and doesn't want his son to settle for the first team he made on the first weekend of a month and a half tryout season. Nobody even knows who the coach is for the outlaw black team yet. Not posted anywhere nor was it addressed at the tryout. There are more questions than answers. The coach will have a big impact on how passionate the boy stays and if he continues to understand the game as you put it. Most B teams don't get that quality of a coach and it's usually some college kid trying to make extra money over the summer.

I don't think there is anything wrong waiting to try out for other teams to hold their try outs and strive for an A team. Many parents sacrifice for their kid to play travel sports and if they only make a B team they might prefer to put the money into clinics and camps instead. B teams can be great and they can be terrible. If the coach is good, committed, fair and motivating, that is great. However, the kids on the team have to be all in too. Sometimes you'll find the families aren't as committed and kids don't show for practices or games because they play for more than one team, other sports or it's just not the team they want and the motivation is lacking. I've seen it both ways. A teams usually don't struggle with this and I think it is wise for the dad to encourage his son to wait it out, work hard and strive for the best. That said, I don't think anyone should put down a B team at any level just because they are a B team. Not every kid is an A player and there should be teams for all kids to play. The key is to find one that is a good fit and kids and coaches are committed. They are out there and can be worth the time and money .

Because it's not about A/B it's about getting better. Because it's not about the parent who never accomplished anything athletically it's about your child growing at his own pace. I have seen many 5th grade A players fail miserably at the MS and HS levels and 5th grade B players bypass their A team club mates toward D1 commitments. Bottom line seek the best experience for your son and forget labeling A/B teams, your son should be saying his team, my team or our team.

That makes sense too. Sit, don't play for another year because you didn't make the "a" team. That will help him improve to make it next year. We'll just play catch in the backyard because we already know daddy is an "a" player so that's allowed.

How about "son would you like to play, have fun, and work on getting better"? Your quest for you son to be awesome like you is only going to hold him back.

Agreed. Unfortunately most B teams don't get a good or dedicated coach. The directors usually don't even give them the time of day. Read the post here, outlaws had tryouts this weekend and sent emails out telling you have a week to register or lose your spot. nobody has any idea who is coaching their black team.

Bottom line seek the best experience for your son and forget labeling A/B teams, your son should be saying his team, my team or our team.

AMEN!!!!


Agreed. Unfortunately most B teams don't get a good or dedicated coach. The directors usually don't even give them the time of day. Read the post here, outlaws had tryouts this weekend and sent emails out telling you have a week to register or lose your spot. nobody has any idea who is coaching their black team.

Classic bate and switch. It happens every year.

Calling me a tool because I am teaching my son not to settle for less? I am very skeptical of "B" teams. I sincerely believe most "B" programs are more of a "your kid didn't make the team but we'll gladly take your $2400" than a program dedicated to improving the kids that didn't make the cut. I am sure there are exceptions so don't get all butt-hurt if your son's B team is nurturing him to your satisfaction.

"That makes sense too. Sit, don't play for another year because you didn't make the "a" team. That will help him improve to make it next year. We'll just play catch in the backyard because we already know daddy is an "a" player so that's allowed."

If you are referring to me, you are making a giant assumption. My son plays other sports during the year as well as PAL and summer lax. I don't feel a $2000 plus fee to be on a substandard team is worth it. There are other avenues to have fun playing lacrosse without having to pay an arm and a leg. He will get plenty of minutes playing with kids his age and older, so I am not concerned with him skipping club ball.

Anyway, my son is trying out for other teams.
Club lacrosse is a hustle. If you feel you are getting your money's worth with your kid playing on a "B" team, then do so.

I would have to agree that staying away from b teams is usually a good idea. Unless you absolutely love and know the coach and other players. Otherwise it is just frustrating and expensive. I learned my lesson and would never do it again!

The hard part of figuring out if your better on a clubs B team vs another clubs A team. Is being on Outlaws, express, b team better than Millon and Sharks A team.

There is only one club with a competitive B team. If you're looking to play in meaningful competive games on a B team then you need to try out for that one. If you're looking for a team that will allow your son a chance to grow and develop as a play, then there are plenty of options. Do your homework first.

I would rather the lesser club's A team as I would imagine more effort would be made to train and coach that team. At the end of the day, I guess it all boils down to the organization and the coach.

Good choice. And any kid on this competitive b team who is a decent player will eventually be moving on. And I don't mean to that clubs a team because that rarely happens!

It's a very solid club. As far as kids moving up to the A team, not true at all. Two kids got moved up since the fall. Probably one more this tryout.

I get your points on the b teams not being an option for you. We haven't had any experiences good or bad with travel clubs. My son is on his town team. He's having a good time there and learning the game in a "non-hysterical" atmosphere. I thought you were looking at it as I'm too good for a b team mentality when you really don't want to give them a lot of $ for a less than advertised product. I apologize.

Hi! New here and could use some advice from the seasoned parents. My son (2023) plays for our town "club" team. A large portion of our team also play for other club teams. Any recommendations for a good team, preferably not fathers coaching. We have that now and it can sometimes be a little self serving. I was considering, legacy, outlaws or force. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated as I would hate to make an expensive mistake or turn my child off to a sport he loves!! Thanks in advance!!

No one was replaced. The A team's roster was just strengthened with more depth. There may be an upgrade to a position at tryouts this year, but then again, maybe not. The program has a history of selecting kids from the B team at any time of the year if they think it will help the A team. This weakens the B team, but they view it as a farm system.

365Lax is run by MLL, NLL, and D1 St John's players. Compared to any other club, they have the most amount of practices year round for the tuition. Rates are reasonable. They are based out of Bethpage.

2nd- I tried the All Greys link from BOTC several times and keep getting a message that the page could not be found. Now what tournaments are the All Greys entering? What is the cost? What do you get in the number of practices, number of tournaments, and gear? Is Travis going to coach this team or just oversee it?

That is normal for true blue. Last year my son tried out and I never heard anything back from them when I called or emailed. The only thing I ever heard from them was when they send out a mass emailing saying if you have not heard from them you did not make it. Totally unprofessional.
True Blue answered me right away and said that they email everyone back.

They would like your contact information so that they can contact you.

If you want to PM me and give me your contact, I will pass it along.

If not.. this is the email address I used and you should be using.

The fee's usually are announced at the tryouts. Last year they charged $1350. A pretty good deal. I called one of the directors and this is what he told me...This team will practice in the Fall, play in a Fall tournament, practice indoors and play a winter tournament then get once a week in the spring and 5 tournaments over the Summer. Custom CPR Helmet, Custom Gloves and more are included this year. At this 5th grade level they seem to have a buzz this year..They have someone on staff now to handle all emails and you can reach out to truebluelacrosse@gmail.com

I know they announced at the tryouts that if you made the team you would be contacted. Not sure if they contacted each player that was not selected. I made it and was called. It was a great year and they handled everything pretty well from my point of view. I will def be trying out for JC team again. He was the best I have seen.

True Blue should be a great team this year. Some highly talented kids that left last year are coming back this year. The college coach who has this team is the driving force behind this and will make it an elite team. He had the 2017 TB team that has a ton of D1 recruits on it. He plans on taking this team to the end.

Listen the T B coach is a highly regarded college coach who happens to have a great track record as a travel team coach also. A lot of people are about to spend a lot of money on a team and really do not know what kind of coach they are getting. JC of True Blue is a proven coach. They are too few of them and nobody compares him to Spallina because obviously he is also a proven coach with the best team by far in this age group. That would be silly. Now look at all the other unproven options out there!!

You may not like JS style- but there is no denying that he knows how to develop skills and team work, alongside perseverance and dedication. He may not be for all kids, but he knows what he is doing and there is no shortage of kids lining up for a shot at one of his teams. There can be more than one great coach and there should be, so kids can find their right fit.

If the coaching is the greatest on the Island, then why does the team's play not reflect that? They must be advertisers.

Not angry at all, but let's be realistic. They are a decent program. And that's fine. I don't understand why people need to pump them up like they're the second coming.

No one said it was the second coming. The Coach took this team late last year because the other coach decided last minute to take over a team he used to coach. Due to indecision a lot of kids left before they knew he was coming on board. The turnout was low but he worked miracles with some of these kids. A lot of kids that left are now coming back. If you saw the talent on this team 2 years ago your head would spin. Hopefully he gets comparable talent this year because then it will be an elite team. No one said that this True Blue coach walks on water but anyone that knows him or played for him will tell you that he is one [lacrosse] of a coach!

He is an assistant coach at D2 school how does that make him a highly regarded college coach. You are pumping him up like he's a Duke or Carolina coach, please stop making a mockery out of the youth lacrosse scene. Who are you and what are your credentials to label him as "Highly Regarded" . By who ?

If you want to PM me and give me your contact, I will pass it along.

If not.. this is the email address I used and you should be using.

TBL-Directors truebluelacrosse@gmail.com

That's the email I used 3 times.


I also emailed true-blue to inquire about the 2023 team and no response.

Co Head coach. Used to be the assistant when he ncaa assistant coach of the year he got promoted. And yes he is not a d1 coach but I think the guys point is that he is not a parent coach like a lot of programs have. He played D1 but so did a lot of these other coaches but they haven't established themselves as coaches yet.

I brought my son to a tryout yesterday. There were many talented boys there. I noticed a lot of Igloo helmets there, some Legacy (including their fogo) and express. Looks like there will be some major turnover this season with many good players shopping for a better fit.

Totally not true. Half the team left last year even after the coach was named. And most of those who left last year are not coming back this year. Last year was a 3/4 grade team because they didn't have enough kids to make a full grade team. He may be a good coach but what was this teams record last year? Which brackets did they play in? Who did they beat? If your going to pump up the advertising that's ok but be factual. The tryouts will show a lot. Including talent level.

Does anyone have any experience with Outlaws Black? I am assuming some of he kids from last year are returning and someone here have seen them play or knows who's coaching that team.

Thanks in advance.

Keep in mind that kids also attend tryouts as tune ups for other teams. some times parent just want to test the waters. Especially since it was midweek tryout and nothing else going on . Don't read into the numbers even though they will use that to get parents to commit early

If you are under the assumption Outlaws "black" is their top team, you should know it is now referred as "select". There were plenty of talented kids there for the 2023 tryout.

Try Bluefish....new but so far the coaches seem to be very good. And Hofstra is certainly convenient.

Legacy is done from last year and they were not even that good. Some people leaving because the coach didn't play to win and did not teach enough it eas more basic for 2nd graders and some are leaving because of the Smithtown parents were obnoxious. One mom even paid here kid to score. Whatever they are a B team at best this year.

No such thing as 2 A teams. Always a B team and no matter how Mike C wants to spin it; it's still a B team. Talent was horrible at Express tryouts. B team will be very very weak.

Hard to have 2 elite team when you don't have elite players. The tryouts were very soft. Alot of kids with no talent. Express can email all they want about coaches and trainers, they do it all the time but when it's time to deliver, it'll be Mike C running his self promtoted practices of 35 kids who hand him $40 a pop. Don't fall for it the bait and switch.

With all of the coaching changes and expansion of teams on the grade level, it looks like one club is going end up with the top two teams. Speaks volumes to the ability to attract and retain both coaches and players alike.

There are a lot of very good teams, just can't talk about them. I don't even know that I would put Igloo in the conversation even before kids jumped ship. They were competitive, just like Outlaws, but did they win anything?

Can anyone give some insight as to how the Outlaws 2023 team played last year and what's expected out of them this year. How they stack up against legacy as they both have two teams in this age group. I mean honest opinion even if your kid competes against them.

Just a parent looking for some insight into the programs and what team is best for his kid.

Thanks

What team is DK coaching? When are the tryouts?
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2023-5th Grade Fall 2015 Summer 2016 - 08/25/15 02:00 PM
8-10 kids from 32 seen at a lot of different tryouts. That roster wasn't big to begin with. Hope you weren't counting those kids in the new competitive team. And that's just a parent observation.

Thanks for your concern. The team will be fine with or without the 32 kids. I think I would be worried more about the change in philosophy at Igloo. It went from being all about the kids, 1 team per grade, no parent coaches, etc. to multiple teams per grade, parent coaches, and all about the money. Not to mention the parent politics are running the show.

Stinks - I thought this organization was going to be different...

Every travel lacrosse team is about the money. They are businesses. And business must be good because there's a new start up team announced every other day. Unless a coach is running a team and not charging for his time -- than he's in it for the money too.. Let me know if you find that team with the pro bono coach. they will have one [lacrosse] of a tryout!

The way the Outlaws parent is trying to spin the death of Express and igloo,and the rise of the outlaws; is rediculous. My son has been at both, and the talent level has been great. I Was very impressed with the structure of the igloo tryouts yesterday. Hopefully it will be the same today.

No parent coaching?? The guy who started the club coaches his own son.

Since when is starting and operating a business that provides a quality product people want a bad thing? If the product is poor or over priced, people won't buy it. If people think a program provides a valuable service at a fair price, then they will buy it. Should we expect lacrosse trainers and coaches to do all this for free? I don't think this would attract great training and coaching talent for our kids.

Great guy who brought in 2 kids from his own town that couldn't make a competitive B team in their own grade so they played down a year on 2023 and never came off the field ! Rebut that DK followers and AA allowed it to morph into a disaster rather than pull the plug on DK when sparks started flying. The entire year was marred with DK insanity from running kids until they almost fainted to firing back at parents who had afternoons wasted at meaningless scrimmages and questioned him on less than adequate playing time. The guy is a wacko who should not be coaching youth lacrosse let alone pay Igloo $3K for him or this other 3rd rate HS coach. The whole fish stinks from the head down.

My best recommendation would be to find out who the coaches would be for your son and meet them in-person before committing to a team. Coaching is everything at that level. Don't know much about the coaches at legacy or outlaws, but I hear the force coaches are great.

365Lax is run by MLL, NLL, and D1 St John's players. Compared to any other club, they have the most amount of practices year round for the tuition. Rates are reasonable. They are based out of Bethpage.

Just to be clear, this elation is because your kid made Igloo? Sorry to be the bubble buster, but that's not really an accomplishment, Chief.

Why is there so many posts on Igloo? who cares. Their two coaches from last year aren't even coaching this team. You now have two new unproven assistant coaches this year. The news should really be about teams that have proven coaches who are still with the team from the beginning. I only know of 3 top club teams with great coaches who are continuing with their team: Bandits, True Blue, Legacy
Every other top club has had changes in their coaching staff. A lot of kids have left the other clubs as well. Consistent Coaching is going to be the key factor this year.

same assistant coach from last year and he was great. Everyone very happy with him. Majority of last years team was at tryouts and Igloo was their first choice. Unfortunately there was a lot of great talent from other teams so there will be replacements with stronger talent. That's with every team. Otherwise why would Express even have tryouts?

Finally...someone with a sane statement...the purpose of tryouts is to improve the team ...it's the ultate goal of each organization!!the constant team bashing is ridiculous and is usually made by a parent that needs to get outside and practice more with their kid

There will be a lot of new faces on all club teams this year including Legacy and True Blue. theres always players moving around...... team wasn't good, parents not happy, team folded and simply kids being replaced. Just life in travel lacrosse. And I'd be elated too if my son got called and I could end the tryout madness! Who wants to be doing this in September!

that doesn't bode well for the bluefish if they need to take anyone from the bengals. their skill level was pretty low except for maybe a couple kids. however it was the bengals first year, and i imagine a new startup is always tough in the beginning.

Anyone looking for a great coach and a team on it's way up should consider the True Blue tryout this weekend. It should be very competitive with the Massapequa kids returning. The Coach plans to take this team all the way through to HS so you won't have to worry about a coaching carousel like a lot of these other teams.

Probably have to worry about the parents of the Massapequa kids that are returning causing issues and complaining about the club. Why did they leave in the first place? Always very suspicious when a group of players leaves a club and then comes back. Supposedly the coaching is good but how much coaching can you do when you are coaching a college team at the same time? Only one coach on the sideline the two tournaments I saw them at.

Saw the same. Even BM's kid was there. That team won't change that much. Will have to see if they can make a good run without him coaching. If his kid is playing you know for sure he'll be involved.

we played them at a tourney at st pauls in garden city in the rain. i just remember one or 2 kids on attack or middie that could handle the ball, and the goalie yelling at the team to help. everyone else just kind of stood around. with that being said, everyone has to start somewhere, and there should be places for kids of all skill level to play. as long as the coaches and organization do the right things along the way. unless the parents on the team have something to say, why make a comment about why parents would send their kids back? if they were happy, while maybe not successful, let them be.

There are camps and clinics for that. You don't need to be paying $1300 to play in a few town tourneys.

Massapequa kids left because their coach became HC of Hurricanes. They also didn't know at the time that JC from Adelphi would be HC of True Blue. Talent at this age group is getting too watered down so they decided to come back with their coach and build a strong A team. Get on the train before it leaves the station and there are no seats left!

Hurricanes! Yeah, that worked out well for you! So the grass wasn't greener on the other side! Back to True Blue this year and then where to next year when you think you see greener pastures somewhere else? If you've been around the travel scene long enough, you will have seen this kind of group before, never happy and then they turn into a cancer on the sidelines and destroy a good thing. Good luck with this group True Blue!!

Tryouts looked great today. Serious talent showed up. Looked like a whole new group of kids with awesome skills. I was told that the Adelphi coach is taking these kids all the way through high school. If my son makes the team I think this will be a VERY competitive "A" team.

Puhlease. TB is a joke at all ages. Only a small group from the south shore thinks otherwise. Rest don't take this team seriously.

Any body know how many legitimate 2022 kids Igloo is taking on their 2023 team this year? Same kids as last year? Think it was 1 or 2. Not counting holdbacks. Just kids playing a grade down. Thanks

Your kid must have been cut. Otherwise you would have attached a name. Good luck. I k is my kid had a amazing experience and was taught the game. Much rather be on someone's A team than someone's C

It's funny that you say that. My son went to a lax camp this year and met a couple of 6th graders. He saw them at 2023 Igloo tryouts and I had to spend all day telling my 10 year old how people cheat in life and its not fair, but keep doing the right thing yourself. Our family doesn't cheat!!! It's funny how kids cough up the unethical behavior of their parents.
Way to go AA of Igloo for allowing this to happen. Another year of rigged tryouts.

Please tell me that this is just a rumor. Why would a club allow older kids on a younger team? I only see this as possible if the club advertises and plays by the USL guidelines and doesn't play on grade based tournaments. That said- don't call the team 2022 or 2023- call it a U-whatever.

Yes, that's fine as long as you're bringing him to a 2022 tryout. Otherwise, he's just a crappy 6th grader that can't cut it playing with kids his own age.

It goes back to the holdback issue. Almost all teams in Maryland and North Carolina are majority hold backs-- like the other poster said-- until US Lacrosse makes changes-- it's more the rule than the exception these days.

Maybe. But then don't call yourself a 2023 team. Either be a grade-based team and take grade appropriate holdbacks but not older grade kids. Or be a U-based team and take age appropriate kids irrespective of grade. Can't do both legitimately. If igloo kids were playing down a grade then team should forfeit those grade based tourney wins on website. Period.

What team is your son on coward? The question was asked by several people. There are multiple D1 commits. Anyway, this is a 2023 post. JC is coaching this 2023 True Blue "A" team, and from what I saw this A team is going to be very good.

Adding a few kids that got cut from true A teams doesn't make you an A team.

From speaking with the parents, a lot of the new faces were not cut from other clubs. Most of the top kids were tired of the BS at other clubs, wanted real coaching, or happen to live nearby and were tired of traveling.

Too bad you're afraid to post the team your kid plays on.

Nobody is writing about your club. You must be lonely, but most likely your kid got cut. Move on, there are a few new clubs left for him to try and get onto.

With 40 kids at tryouts it would make sense. 2 teams of 20. Except when they make calls and find out half the kids already accepted spots on other club teams. Then they will be back to one mediocre team.

So Express kept pretty much the same team as last year which means they will keep getting killed by the Bandits! Igloo made huge changes which will probably set that team back. 32 is a shell if at all. So it would be safe to assume that it's the Bandits A team and everyone else is just a B team.

What a moron you are. Brilliant analysis of teams that haven't even played together yet. How do you know what players are on all of these teams when the parents that have kids on the teams don't even have full rosters? I think it is well established that the Bandits are the best team in the grade, but to call every other team a "B" team is incredibly unfair to the boys on those teams (Express, Igloo, Outlaws, amongst others) that practice hard all year long and have proven that they are not in the same class as true "B" teams (Hurricanes, Icon, Millon, Empire). Do the rest of us a favor and keep your stupidity to yourself until at least after the fall when these teams have all been established and have a few practices under their belts.

Will the Bandits be called a 2023 team? I know they aren't U11. Anyone know anything about the new select team out of Rockville Ctr? Shore to Shore?

Go ahead and tell me what team you "imagine" my son is on. My son loves playing on the team he's on. He plays on a team with a group of great boys who are supported by wonderful parents and who are coached by men who teach them not only the game of lacrosse, but valuable life lessons, something you obviously did not have the benefit of growing up. Please, please make sure to respond because we would all love to hear some additional brilliant insight into the landscape of 5th grade boys lacrosse from you. And please make sure you respond in ALL CAPS again so that you can be sure that whatever your next ludicrous message is gets across loud and clear.

ADVICE:
My 2023 son made the outlaws B team and True Blues A team. Any feedback on either of these programs? All I know is that Bobby Rooney & Pat Brennan are coaching outlaws and Ed Cook & ? will coach TB. Can anyone recommend any of these coaches? Thanks in advance!

Your son didn't make True Blue 2023 otherwise you would know that the coach is Joe Cat.

Go with the proven Club. Outlaws did very well last year and solid coaching. TB was a combined 3/4 C team last year. Not sure how they can say this year they are an A team. Especially if they don't have all their commits yet.

My friends son is on the fourth grade team and Joe is coaching that team too.So I would say he is going to need help from other coaches because he has two team And Coach Ed Cook son is on that team.. So he might be right ...

That would be a strange thing to be dishonest about. The TB coach did call this evening. As a mom who brought her son to these tryouts I would love to say I remember the coaches names but I do not. I recall meeting Ed Cook. You're telling me it's this other guy, ok, awesome. It means nothing to me as I do not know anything about these teams or coaches. I was looking for guidance, not to be challenged on the validity of a 10 year old making a lax team. Who would lie about something so insignificant?!

Way to put grumpy in his place. The other posters are right though. Joe Cat is a fantastic youth lacrosse coach.

My advice to you is go where your son feels like its a better fit they are both good teams. Maybe he knows a kid or two on one of the teams, that always helps. Your absolutely right to bring up that you were coming here for guidance on a 10 year old team. The problem is you came here, where any tool with a computer can type a wiseass reply to you as evidence above.

If you live in Massapequa then True Blue is the team for you. They don't want outsiders to ruin their local High School farm system.
Outlaws don't have bias on players from towns outside of their area.

Gotcha! Lots of variables with this stuff. I do not live in Massapequa, I'm on the North Shore closer to Huntington. Thanks for the insight!

I feel like Outlaws is mostly Huntington based teams & TB is Massapequa. I'd go with Outlaws, if teams are similar. Especially if last year TB was a combined team. I don't like combined teams for travel lacrosse.

Team was not a combined team last year for true blue. Joe Catt is the coach for the 2023 A team for true blue and I believe cook is the Assisstant. I would not take the outlaws B team over the true blue team. b teams get less attention and you will pay 1k more with outlaws for less training. The 2023 true blue team will be a very good team this year most of the kids that left to go to the Hurricanes last year came back. That hurricanes team beat up on the outlaws A team last year.

As for coaching there is no comparison with what you get with joe cartt and Ed cook as coaches compared to what they give you at outlaws

Thanks true blue parent..as far as teams and coaching true blue was not very good last year the outlaws were good - as far as outlaws getting beat up by the hurricanes thats laughable. You have to do your homework and speak with the directors and the coaches, at the tryouts speak with parents about what they experienced last year and why and what is bringing them back. Good luck to you

Sorry outlaw parent but I watched the game you lost. this is 5 grade lacrosse no need to get defensive about it. feel free to tell any story you want but the score was the score.

As for TB they will be a much better team this year. the question was about deciding between a B team with outlaws or the A team with TB. the outlaws B teams last year were ignored why pay all the money when you can get better coaching elsewhere. just go to the outlaws news thread. there is already complaints about this team that they have changed coach's since the tryouts and after taking people's money. Not sure that is what you want to pay for.

Look forward to seeing what happens on the field. you can call your second team black all you want still is a B team.

If your talking about the JDRF game. What was the score. Hurricanes did not win that game. they played very good against outlaws in one of the first tournaments of the year. But hurricanes are not a good team. This is evident by them practically folding and starting over.

I was told one person is coaching 2023 black and that's the only coach that I have heard about for that team. There has been no change in coaching for that team. Where did you get that information from? I also wanted my son to tryout for True Blue, however after numerous emails and no answer I figured, how difficult can it be to answer a customer without his money and how difficult it will be after you had his money.

True Blue does not answer emails. There is very little communication from their camp. Their website doesn't even communicate info. It's a good Old boys club who only communicates if you live in Massapequa.

Sorry true blue - no offense taken at all just stating what actually happened - outlaws didnt loose the game. This is the 1st year for a "B" team that is coached by the director and another - as stated on website and tryouts. Their have been no coaching changes as far as 2023 two teams just someone maybe misreading the site. My son made the "b" team after leaving another program (black-silver-grey-blue whatever dont get so hung up on a name) and we are looking forward to learning and having fun on a b team. I will take this program over true blue and its uncertainty.
Good luck to you

TB uncertainty? Not really sure where you are getting that. This is the 2 ms year with Cat at the controls and a lot of kids made monster improvement last year under him. It's true that last year there were a couple of stand out 3 graders on the team but this year they are all on the 2024 team. A lot of good teams have players that play up. Nothing new there. This years tryout had much better talent because a lot of people saw the great improvement that these kids made under Cat. If you think that your son is playing for a great coach then this shouldn't rattle you but if you are starting to realize that you are paying money for a father coach, a so so coach or college player with zero coaching background then I guess I know why there are so many haters!! See you at tryouts next year.....

TB did not beat the Outlaws last year -- they lost. And I don't believe EC is the assistant. You may want to check that fact as well. If a Club is not being upfront and honest now, that's a good indicator on which way to go.

Do you know if there is one or two teams for TB 2023.? Thought I heard them say they were considering having two as the tryouts yielded a lot of talented kids.

No problem here at all- if you think that your son improved last year and the team got better then good luck at tb. You seem to believe in tb and stick up for their coaches and program by bashing another- good luck to you. As far as the outlaws never said how good or great coaches were i guess time will tell. The only hater seems to be you, did your son not make the black (yes B ) team, don't get all the hatred by you, have great winter and see you on the field next year.

So you say it wasn't a combined 3/4 team last year but you ARE saying there were a few "stand out" 3rd graders on the team last year. That would make it a combined team no??. And EC is not the assistant coach. I would be wary of any Club that can't be upfront and honest.

It was a combined team..Whomever said different does not know what they are talking about..EC was not the coach nor is he this year..He coaches a different grade..This year its all 5th. So start the hating with the correct info..

There are two 2023 teams for True Blue this year. I am under the impression Coach Cat is coaching the B team but could have gotten snowed on that.

True Blue is jerking everybody around. There is no communication. At the tryouts Joe Cat told all the parents that they will be calling them and promised two teams. Most parents haven't heard anything and the team left th hanging again.

I'm new to TB so I can not speak about your past experience with the team. I can say that I was notified by JC last night that my son made the 2023 A team. Today, I had additional questions, left a message and JC called me back with in 10 minutes. I was told that they are putting together a second team. Hope this information helps! Good luck.

365Lax tryouts are on Monday. Still time to register.
Head coach is Tom Michaelsen the owner and great lax player. This is a great opportunity to get in on a new team with super coaching.

Yeah, I heard that the coaching staff is former St John's alumni and MLL, and NLL. I am bringing my son down for tryouts because I am looking for an alternative to the "Daddy coaches" and want unbiased quality development for my son.

Are you referring to the two Daddy coaches when you say 40 & 50 year olds?
Should have kept KC and DK. The only way this team could win anything is to go bigger with their pics.

Amazing how people try to discredit others without any knowledge. Bengals tryouts are not free. They are $50. My son played on the 2021 team last year. 100% of those kids were at tryouts again. Yeah... Really terrible experience. Ask anyone from that team if there kid did not improve. They all did Bc it come down to who is coaching your kid. Not chasing the bumper sticker so dad can feel proud that his son is on the third team of a bigger organization and paying three times the amount. If you have nothing positive to say... Then you are not thinking long enough. Stop the negativity

Did the 2020's that played down all year come back too? Also, you know by now that kids already moved on to other programs. Good luck this year to whatever team your son plays on.

so you hope the 2020's will be back with the 2021 team and you see nothing wrong with it? And they is part of the reason the Bengals are a joke.

Like I said, kids are moving on and there wasn't enough kids at tryouts to have anyone worry about "making it". Enjoy another season playing town tourneys.

Truthfully who cares about the kids grade?? I know it seems bad but if the kids are age appropriate given US lacrosse then the grade is irrelevant, it really should be about development and now winning. Its the kids who aren't age appropriate and being held back that are the safety issue, and there's plenty of them to go around.

Yeah, well our True Blue B team is better than your sons team any day of the week. At tryouts, they weren't even evaluating. I'm sure the B team can beat the A team!! Plus, we were better last year than the new group of kids they chose.

In the past they have not had strong teams. However fl$'s 2023 team will be very interesting this year. They had huge numbers at their tryouts and only kept 3 kids from last year. That's a lot of upgrades. This will be a team to watch.

Yeah right. That is hilarious. Sounds like typical True Blue... Leave all the kids hanging and scrambling to find other teams to play on.

The previous post sounds more like accuracy that TB actually does have a B team, but they never told any of the parents who didn't make it.

You're right. We should talk about how igloo brought in 2 new coaches and a bunch of kids left because the coaches brought in their own players who are not better. We could also talk about how Express through BM under the bus And made his assistant coach now the head with very little experience. I am sure those crazy parents will want him out next when the Bandits crush them again. Then you have the outlaws who decided to make a select team this year without telling the parents so when they said yes to the black team they were really on the B team? Nice move. Last years Black team wasn't good enough to make a select team so why bother? And lastly you could talk about the best team the Bandits who will all be burnt out by 9 th grade!!

I heard 365Lax is starting a 5th grade team. The owner is the coach, and tryouts are still open. Bluefish has The Hofstra coach as it's Director. Revolution tryouts are coming up as well. Does anyone know of other clubs still holding tryouts?

God forbid your awesome kid and awesome club have to deal with the lower peasants on the way to your air conditioned tents. More kids want to play let them play. More people want to launch a program that they think wiLloyd be better than current options, that's their business.

You forgot about Legacy not even having enough players to field two teams and BARELY having enough kids for one. They were bad last year and just got worse. I'm starting to think the big name teams are a waste of time. How many teams have the same full coaching staff from last season? How many teams legitimately improved? I'm sure kids having more options for teams is a good thing. Some say watering down, but I disagree. If coaches stayed with their teams and teams stayed together they will be dominant. There are a few, but the number is decreasing annually. Everybody is looking for the big payout.

I also agree with more options. I'm tired of owners saying they will get your kid into college, but pay us $2,000 every year until high school ends. Guess what? the money hungry owners are full of sh**. I want my son to be coached correctly with the right skill development and lax IQ. If he makes it to D1 great, otherwise he's going to a great college, he'll be a starter, and then he'll get a great career! You can now find these clubs and coaches for under 2k, and your son will play more lacrosse than the high price bumper sticker,shiny uniform/nice tent club. Do your research on the new 5th grade teams, you'll be amazed at some great coaching that's out there, and it's not Express, 91, or Igloo.

I agree. My concerns for my 10 year old are that 1. he enjoys the experience and 2. He has a great coach who helps him develop and expand upon his skills. Other than that I have no expectations for his future....he's ten! I don't even remember what I wanted to do when I was 10 but I know I didn't go to college for it. I did get in on an educational scholarship though. I push the educational aspect and if he wants to play lax or football in college that's a nice bonus.

There are a lot of wrongs in lacrosse. Across the board and up and down the east coast. Go to Maryland which is U based and your son will play against 7 th graders. There are plenty of good clubs out there. Many that don't leave LI. Something tells me though your such a bitter person no Club will make you happy. Maybe you should go back to baseball

Did that one 2022 player go back to Igloo 2023? Did they take other 2022s?

who cares about Igloo 2023. their tryouts are rigged, the two previous amazing coaches are gone, they kept some of the kids that are PAL quality. the new coaches are unheard of, etc...

No he did not. And don't let anyone fool you--- he'll be on the STS sideline -- he's staying with his coach

Igloo and Legacy both took a very big step back due to inconsitancies with their coaching. Igloo kids were trying out for every team under the sun to get away and Legacy lost so many kids that they needed to combine thier A and B teams. Both teams had some good showings last season. I don't think they won anything, that I can recall, but that's not necessarily the metric of quality. At least it's not the only one. They will still be middle of the pack, though.

PW dad here. I thought team 32 was one of the best 2023 teams anywhere. They couldn't beat the Bandits, but they almost beat the HB's and owned Igloo. Aren't the 32 kids that did not go to igloo going to STS? 32 is just a town team now. The politics were supposedly crazy. Town elite travel teams are quickly fading. The older the kids get, and the closer they get to HS, the more important it is to get your A player kid on a travel squad. If you play for Express, for example, you will be seen by the Chaminade, Kellenberg and St Ant.'s coaches. If you play for fl$, then.....?

Team 32 was a very good team. It's a shame to see that team breakup. They gave HBs a good run for their money and had excellent games with Igloo ( they won some and lost some -- youth lax at its best). It will be an interesting year to see how all the teams recover from the drama. No one will know for sure until the fall tourneys start. Only sure bet is the Bandits will stay on top.

Almost?? They lost by 3 goals. Badgers got off to a slow start that game and 32 couldn't keep up when HB's got in gear. Another half and 32 loses by 7/8 goals. Manhassett is overrated. Dad's are full of themselves.

They're usually decent but sometimes have numbers issues with their teams when it comes to tournaments.

A couple of Middies short? Are you kidding me? You can't run a team on minimum of 16 players and borrow a few from the other team for a tourney? I wish teams would stop the madness with trying to money grab and play with who they have!!

Uuuummmm, no. Actually, you can't grab a couple of kids from the other team for tournaments. That would be considered cheating. I'd rather they go the money grab route. It's more honest

Most of those kids have been waiting for a response from true blue about filling up the rest of the B team, but no responce, they only had 13 and i know that at least 4 have moved on, they had all defence and attack, no middies. so they are at least down to 9 from the original B team unless they found some more

True Blue handled this without class. Joe Cat said to the parents at tryout that he was taking our returning players by having his assistant coach the 2nd team. Turns out far from the truth. Then they send out an email telling the parents a week later that their kid didn't make the team. Then they call and tell the parent that they want your kid.
There's a reason why the kids moved on and will not come back.
Loyalty works both ways. You're never getting our money again.

extra work for extra pay, I'm ok with it. Is it free and only for a select few? Maybe not ok then. Is there a kid who just needs the extra work to keep up and it is best done out of the regular practice environment? that is OK by me too.

wow. 2x week in the fall at 5th grade? long term payoff potential is not equal to the potential burnout factor. Good for winning 5th grade tournaments though.

When is it OK to practice 2x a week in the fall? I'm not trying to be argumentative, I'm just curious on your thoughts. They're not babies anymore. These boys have been, for the most part, playing lax for 4-5 years now. Some have been playing travel for 2-3. I see Baseball, Wrestling, Hockey and Soccer practicing a few times a week (year round now). I'm OK with doing it with lax. The way I see it, if your kid wants to do it, let him. If he's fighting you to go to practice, you're not long for the team anyway. My only concern is that it really interferes with the boy's football schedules. That should come first in the fall since it's not played in any other season on LI.

It's perfectly fine to practice 2-3 days per week if there is no other sport involved. There is no burnout when you mix up the training during the week. Ex. shooting/feeding day 1, dodging day 2, IQ:offense/defense/fast breaks/clearing day 3

It definitely seems like teams are getting started earlier. 91 is going full force. And I hear legacy and Empire are too. Should be a competitive fall season.

Lots of research against early specialization. That's fine for an in season schedule. But to have elementary school kids do that year round is essentially precluding them from other sports. Yes it's happening in other sports like soccer but it's not good for those kids either. I have 2 in high school and two younger ones. The club stuff and intense commitment is coming earlier and earlier. Very few kids benefit from that in the long run but it's a great way to create super teams in youth lax. I see some kids in high school viewing the game almost like a job rather than a passion. And those kids didn't start the club circuit until 5th/6th. I just think it's too much too soon. Maybe I'm the minority.

My son plays football, basketball and lax. We are also avid skiers. Things get busy, but we make it work and he enjoys all of his activities. With that being said, travel teams are tournament teams. Tournaments are played to win. If a team wants to be the best team (the goal of every team), they will be judged by tournament and head to head wins. These wins only come via practice. The more tournaments a team wins, the more kids will want to play for that team, the better the team gets.

I'm amazed at the posts stating that winning travel tournaments is the #1 goal of some of these top clubs and their parents.
Not what 5th grade travel lacrosse is supposed to be about.
Development, life skills and a positive experience is what is supposed to be gained. Not only wins.
The win at all cost attitude is ruining many kids, their parents relationship with those kids and our sport.

Hop, so true and so sad. Too many parents are using the club their kids play on and how well they do as a way of keeping score. We actually had dads last year bet on whose kid scored more goals in a tournament, same team.. and told their kids they were betting. Could have been "a sign of the apocalypse" story.

Old screamer from igloo is the coach and the 32 kids that did not go Igloo. Throw in a few HB's and some Rock Ctr kids and you have a wonderful sausage of a team.

No HBs went to STS and only a handful of 32 kids went.

Right. Only a handful of 32 kids because Igloo took 10 of them. 32 only had 15 kids last year. I think your wrong on the HB post.

Yep, DK is the only lax coach to ever yell at a kid for screwing up a play. Igloo parents are so sensitive, can't wait to see PS and SH throw a bouquet of roses at the first kid who makes a mistake. You want to compete with the Bandits and Express but you expect your coach to carry himself like a nursery school teacher. Good luck. You got what you wanted, DK is gone. Leave the man be and worry about your own team. I've got a feeling you'll find plenty to complain about under the new regime.

There are three express team in bracket, but express haugen is in 2022. Are they playing up? In 2023 there is Chaney, chaney 2 and white. Are one of those Haugens team going under a different name to play in both brackets? 2022 is playing later in the day. Don't see express having 4 2023 teams. Looks like a competitive bracket. Not sure of 91 warriors, legacy, express white doing much. Should come down to outlaws, igloo and one of the chaneys (if they are Haugens team/old honey badgers)

Trying to figure that out myself. The tournament on Monday (is that vague enough) has three 2023 express teams. In 2022 bracket is express haugen, which is a coach of 2023. Honey badgers are still here but don't go by that name, wondering if that is them playing up in Monday tournament or are the honey badgers going as Chaney or Chaney 2.

The 2022 bracket also has two chaneys plus the haugen and a lynott. So that's 7 express teams between 2022 and 2023.

Right, Soooooo why do both divisions have a Channy 2 team? What team is that? No such team is listed on their website. Assuming it's either 22 playing down in 2023 and the 2023 playing up in 2022? Explain how that works please...

There are two Chaney teams in 2023 bracket and a white. Then what makes up the two chaneys. Are they splitting the Chaney team for tournament or as in original question, is Haugens team going under the name Chaney for 2023 bracket and haugen for 2022 bracket? Simple question seems very hard to explain.

Either way, Express is cheating and Legacy seems to be fine with it. Since you can't have kids on the roster of multiple teams, and they definitely don't have that many teams, they are trying to pull the wool over our eyes. Legacy is letting them do it too which is just as bad. That program is really falling hard. First tourney of the year and this is how both clubs want to start? Disgraceful by both of them.

This is the most irrelevant post I've read in a while. Are you that detached from the ideals that sports in stills on children?? "They're only 10" is the precise reason that these practices should be thwarted. You don't think that people will be talking about express cheating? You don't think the 10 year olds will know? You, pal, are the one that needs an attitude check.

Your like Lacrosse Seinfeld. You post about nothing. This is a forum. The point is to have a discussion. It's not a 10 year old forum, thus the reason, Jerry, that you even come on here and read and post. That's for your insightful participation.

As an outsider reading these texts, I think it's more about age appropriate kids getting hurt by older kids than having an older kid help win your Express game

No 10 yr old is getting hurt by an 11yr old. I'm not saying it's right to play older kids but at that age I don't think it's a big difference with size.

NAssau Suffolk football league , if they're still around has double age group teams. The boys played young one year and then the following year they were the older ones. No one ever complained. A few years later , the newer generation of crybaby parents right away go to videotape about how old is he , or when's his birthday and so on. All you parents think your son is the next best thing but meanwhile he's average and just wants to have fun and play. Unfortunately he can't because you have him thinking everyone else is cheating. Your cheating him.

That is the dumbest justification ever posted. In sports at this age skill level is a major difference from year to year. Kids older at this age are usually faster and stronger from one year to the next. If my 10 year old would play with the 9 year olds he could physically hurt most of them and run circles around most.

But that is not the topics of discussion. The question is what teams are express entering into the tournament. Their website one set of teams and they registered a different set for tournament.

ok, yes, there are some valid issues with people questioning what team is what, etc. and there is already a lot of angst and vitriol flowing on the boards at all the different ages, about this and upcoming tournaments. it's the first tourney, lets see how it plays out with the teams. let them play and compete and have fun. stop starting fights for your kids. let them discover their worlds. don't salt the earth for them.

as far as everyone's express questions go, i guess we'll see with our own eyes on monday what the deal is. focus your attenion today on work, kids, and real life issues. [lacrosse], go work on this weekends fantasy roster.

Sounds like your son is playing down. He must be so bad that he is disgraced by kids his own age.

Express North has nothing to do with this conversation. We're discussing the Channy 2 team. It doesn't exist except in this tourney. No kid deserves to be cheated.

people complained. No one listened. A kid will have to get seriously injured first unfortunately. I know 3 kids told they shouldn't play football till high school or ever based on injury this year 10 and 11's due to injury. Some kids are two helmet size difference. Its irresponsible of the leagues to allow it.

What team does your son play for that he needs a team to cheat to give him a competitive game? When a team stacks the roster and blows other teams out by 10 goals, it's not competitive. Your son will feel like crap. Games won't be good.

If you check out Tourney Machine in 2022 there are 4 Express teams registered: LI Express Channy, LI Express Channy 2, LI Express Haugen (2023 coach) and LI Express Lynott. In 2023 there is LI Express Channy, LI Express Channy 2, LI Express White (and also Express North). If Haugens team is in 6th grade bracket - how is it possible for Express to have 3 additional teams in 2023 so a total of 4 teams when there were only about 60-70 kids at tryouts! Interesting! Sounds like a lot of "guest appearances" on Monday. Do they really have THAT many extra helmets!

Yes, I'm sure. Express North is listed as Express North. I care because my son is playing in a tournament. I care because when tournaments are run, there should be a level playing field. I care because if a team just materializes out of thin air, it's clear that no one is making certain that the players are cleared to play in that age group. I care because it's BLATANT cheating and irresponsible on behalf of the event organizers. I care because last time a team just came about like this, two players on my sons team got leveled by a bigger kid.

Your letting yourself get caught up with winning and losing, this isn't PAL. If my sons team gets beat by 10, I'll tell him he needs to work harder to compete, not that they cheated. I applaud Haugen for playing up and challenging his kids. Not only is it fall, it's fall of 5th grade, development over championship.

What team does your son play for that he needs a team to cheat to give him a competitive game? When a team stacks the roster and blows other teams out by 10 goals, it's not competitive. Your son will feel like crap. Games won't be good.


Your letting yourself get caught up with winning and losing, this isn't PAL. If my sons team gets beat by 10, I'll tell him he needs to work harder to compete, not that they cheated. I applaud Haugen for playing up and challenging his kids. Not only is it fall, it's fall of 5th grade, development over championship.


What does Haugen playing his team up have to do with any of this? I'm not concerned with existing teams playing up. My concern is with unregulated, made up teams playing instead. I'd be a [lacrosse] of a lot happier with my guy playing the Honey Badgers. At least I would know that they are a legitimate team. Channy 2 is made up of who knows what.

Your missing the point. The discussion is not haugen playing up. That is excellent and a good choice. The question are who is Channy and Channy 2. Express at this age only had one Channy team. Is that a team playing up, down Newley formed, formed for the tournament or Haugens team going at 2023 and 2022 braket. Are kids in Channy and Channy 2 going to be interchanged, a problem that was rampant last year. Teams moved kids around based on who they were playing and wether they made the finals or not. Nobody cares that haugen is playing up.

Express lists 3 2023 teams. If 1 is playing up that leaves 2 and the north team. So they very easily could have 3 in the same bracket. Now if one is up and they list 4 at 23 then I could see that being an issue.

The point is don't be consumed with trying to win, just challenged the team to get better. The express is a large club with many teams, if the boys are grade appropriate who cares who's on what team. The point about Haugen is that he is willing to take his team into a bracket and possibly lose every game to get better. Don't concern yourself or measure the boys success based on winning at this age. Just find great teams to play, you'll just exhaust yourself complaining throughout the years.

Express (Long Island) has four teams at the 2023 Level. Haugen's is playing up in the 2022 bracket. There are two Channy Teams due to overwhelming try-out numbers this year, and there is a team under Coach White. The third team in the bracket is Express North from Westchester. Whites team is not in this tournament.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2023-5th Grade Fall 2015 Summer 2016 - 10/09/15 02:45 PM
I stand corrected, White's team is in this tournament, so I guess you can fault the Express for sending four teams to play in the tournament. I'm not sure why?, it's just a larger organization.

Complain as you must, but just let the boys play!

Who cares if it is a money grab. They obviously had enough people sign their kids up. Maybe that is bad parenting. Maybe their kids just want to play and improve and aren't as concerned about winning. As for Express maybe they are looking to take the best that signed up and create a strong team and weed the rest out.

It's 10 year old lacrosse. Express had 4 2023 teams. Three from LI, one from Westchester. Igloo played lights out. Legacy and Outlaws are good teams.

Their was only one bracket today. The good town teams would have given Igloo, Outlaws and Legacy a great run today.

or maybe there are a lot of kids out there that want to play. kids have to play somewhere, so what if express wants to have multiple "developmental" teams? just tell the kids and their parents where you would approve of them playing on another organizations team. or just tell them they can't play.

My take from yesterday is this: it was a beautiful day! Igloo is greatly improved. They were outstanding and dominated at every position. There was no reason for the Badgers to avoid them. Outlaws and Warriors looked about even, though they didn't play. They're a coin flip. Legacy took a pretty big step back from last year. They will have to figure some things out. The Honey Badgers are the only competitive Express team. Channy, Channy 2, and White all have a lot of work to do.

It's the first tourney and means very little though. See everyone Saturday for round 2!

From what I saw yesterday, no town team even scores on them. They were very, very good. To the poster that said they are a top 5 team, I think that's an understatement. If they can play like that on a consistent basis, they will be in the #2 or #3 spot of the 2023 teams by the summer season (if they're not already). I wish HB played in their own division yesterday, because they would have had their hands full. But without a B division, I kind of understand. Outlaws and Warriors were not close to Igloo yesterday and Legacy and Express were well below both of them. I know that it's about the kids' development and not about wins, but it was good to see some of the better local teams in the same tourney. If that can happen more often it will make for a very entertaining season.

Town team label not such a negative. Igloo a very strong team and almost whole roster from Manhasset or Cold Spring Harbor.

Ridiculous argument at all comparing town teams vs any club team. Your taking some of the best players from multiple towns against the best from just one town. That's an unfair comparison for the boys. Town teams should stay just that-- town teams. Trying to be anything more results in failed programs. There are lots of towns that have already learned that lesson.

It's not rediculus. Look at the Varsity level. Good town teams frequently beat St. Anthonys and Cham which draw from all over.

Thought it was funny as well but parents on that team will not give the new coach too much rope before they demand BM be back on the sidelines. It was pretty obvious that the team is not the same since his departure.

"Almost" the whole roster is not the same as the whole roster. And "almost" from one or two strong towns is much different than a single town team. They are a very good team, but they are very far from being a town team.

Whew. Thanks for explaining "almost" to all of us, Captain quotation mark. Before Manhasset 32 broke into Igloo and StoS they would beat most travel teams. So it can be done.

We agree Igloo is almost exclusively from two towns. And yes, two is more than one. Maybe you can help us define "very good" team next? Or maybe define "much different"? Enlighten us.

Manhasset 32 split up with several of the boys and a coach going to Igloo and the other boys and coaches going to S2S

Why? you ask, the coaches couldn't agree and get along. That toxic atmosphere will find its way to the parents of Igloo who were lied to about the make up of the coaching staff at tryouts

This is a poor analogy. There are numerous logistical barriers keeping good players out of St A and Cham that don't exist for travel summer teams. For Catholic HSs, the player actually has to travel to and from the school 180 days a year, pay the tuition (if not on a scholie), miss out on attending school with friends, has to want a Catholic education, which usually means actually be Catholic, etc, etc. Its nothing to jump to a summer travel team as opposed to whatever the town may be offering. Its a huge deal, however, to attend a Catholic HS as opposed to your local, free, HS.

Sorry, but kids go to these schools for the athletics. They attract top athlete. They should never lose to a town team period. It is an embarrassment that has been happening more frequently due to the presence of some outstanding local programs.

No problem. I assumed that since your original post was so stupid and incorrect that you were an idiot. That's why I used the parenthesis, you see. I wanted to highlight or emphasize the important words/concepts to make it easier for you to understand. Hope it helped. Also, a team made up of Huntington, Manhasett, Syosett, West Islip, Bellmore, etc... Is exactly like every other team. A travel club team that resembles a town team in no way whatsoever.

Sure, some go there for athletics, but clearly not enough of the top players go there to ensure dominance over good public HSs. And the barriers described above are the main reason why. Those barriers mostly don't exist in the travel vs town team metric.

Look at it this way. Very few of the best 100 or so players in 6th grade chose a town team in the summer over a travel team. But many of the best 100 or so 11th and 12th graders choose their local HS over a parochial school. This is why the analogy fails, and why town teams mostly can't compete with the best travel teams, but it should surprise no one that the top publics can often beat top parochial schools.

Bandits (because they won't beat Crush) are playing on grade level and Wolfpack is playing up in weak B division.

You mean Smash?

Where else should the pack play? Nothing to prove on grade until they find Taz.

Warriors are playing A, maybe they value comp over shirts. Good for them.

How many Express teams in the bracket? Also, what is the over/under on the number of goals scored against Bandits? 3 games == 6?

Looks like Bandits are going to play the Warriors?!' Really? Amazing what they will do to one of their own for the free tshirt and bragging rights. Based on teams in that bracket Bandits should be playing up so they can have competitive games instead of wasting everyone else's time and money.

Bandits haven't lost a game in two years and almost always play up think they have a plan. People it's FALL ball most boys are playing soccer football pumpkin picking etc. 5th grade!!!!! Analyzing 5th grade fall tournaments

A page back everyone said the HB should not play up and here the Bandits should it's the first tournament of the fall Also doubt the bandits care about a tee shirt as implied earlier (sure their drawers are full) it's a fall tournament people enjoy it

When your the Bandits you know exactly what you have. No team in the 2023 bracket has beaten them yet. Why take a fall tourny to beat up on your fellow brethren and obviously weaker teams that will now only dread the tournament. Tournaments should be about evenly matched competitive games-- so players can develop and have fun. There is no fun in losing games by 15-20 goals

Do you think the Warriors play B divisions? The only time they ever played in a b division was last fall when they played up and won at Mustang.

I'd be surprised if anyone scores on Bandits but agree they should absolutely play in the 2022 in which they would likely win as well.

Wolfpack isn't playing anyone. SYAG is a horrible town team. I saw Express White on Monday. They are the 4th Express team and won't win a game this season. Greenwich is a 4th/5th Town team. When your Pack plays decent B teams they get crushed. Go away.

Posting it on here since it was the 2023 bracket. I've always stayed out of the
91 vs other teams back and forth. Mainly because I've never really had any direct interaction with them, other than some normal kids/parents on my sons town team. Today my sons team met the Wolfpack. Now I know everything people have been saying on here is true. And by the way wolf mommy, when you say "we own that goalie", do you realize you are not playing? And that said goalies family might be standing next to you which is why we had to say something to make you look stupid? Pathetic.

You can't judge a group of parents on one crazy mom on the sideline. Every team has one or two. We have played the Wolfpack 4 times and everytime I've talked with a couple of dads throughout the game and they were nice guys. My son plays defense so I stay on that side of the field, guys I've talked to a couple of times have boys that play attack. I can't tell you how everyone else on the team acts, but I think it's unfair to group them all together. Even our team has 1 or 2 crazies.

That was just the most obnoxious case. There was more. But I wholeheartedly agree. Pretty much all teams have them. Even if that wasn't my son in goal I'd still be disgusted by it.

Not a Wolfpack or Taz father, but Wolfpack playing up will not face any team as difficult a Taz. They should just play on grade level. Seems they would just prefer to not give Taz a chance to win. If Taz wants to play up, they would unquestionable face Wolfpack in the Championship. This, however, is a 2023 thread so I don't actually give a crap. Neither team would beat an A division team.

Outlaws would beat both of them and it wouldn't be close. The difference between A and B divisions is astronomical. Please leave.

Not a Wolfpack or Taz father, but Wolfpack playing up will not face any team as difficult a Taz. They should just play on grade level. Seems they would just prefer to not give Taz a chance to win. If Taz wants to play up, they would unquestionable face Wolfpack in the Championship. This, however, is a 2023 thread so I don't actually give a crap. Neither team would beat an A division team.

Actually, Wolfpack and Taz would beat some "A" teams in 2023 such as the Outlaws who play only in "A".


Outlaws would beat both of them and it wouldn't be close. The difference between A and B divisions is astronomical. Please leave.

The tourney is rigged to have Outlaws play the easier teams. Igloo and Express in the championship.

Which outlaws team was at the Columbus day tourney? Black or select?

Can't be Igloo and Express. They play each other and one will have a loss.

Outlaws schedule is a cakewalk.

They will play the winner of Igloo/Express in the final.

Win a 2024 tournament where there is real competition and then start talking about 2023. You play in 2024/2025 tournaments, and your talking about 2023? Taddies are losing thier minds.

Amazing how this Pack team has pretty much beaten every team in 2024 and a bunch from 2023 and you sit here and say they are nothing to talk about. Didn't Crush and Bandits start out the same way and just kept improving? The fact they play up 99% of the time and have no problem stepping into an A 2023 bracket to see what they are capable of at a much higher level speaks volumes. The plan is to have these boys play good solid lacrosse against teams that should be a step above them. Winning the tournament is secondary. And what parent in all of Lacrosse doesn't think their kids team are a little better than they really are? Look in the mirror, you are one of them. This is a 2023 thread that we shouldn't even be on, but when a troll opens his mouth and blurts out BS, something has to be said. Now go do something right for your boy and have a catch.

Agreed. They are a step behind the top two Maryland 2024 teams. Maybe start there before the crush bandits comparison. Neither of them lost a game to a Maryland team at this age.

What 2023 teams has the Pack beaten? Last summer there were 3 A teams at the 2023 level (Badgers, Igloo & 32) and 1 AA team (Bandits). Did the Pack play any of those teams? Every other 2023 team on the Island was B level and any of those four 2023 A/AA teams could step up to the 2022 bracket and beat B teams just like the Pack did at 2023.

You've got a good team but settle down, it's a long road ahead and 2023 happens to be a pretty strong year for LI lax with 75 legit A players grouped into a few different teams (32 broke up). Looking at your schedule this weekend, you should be able to very easily handle Legacy, they are weak at this age group. 3 Village is a town team obviously so you should have an advantage there and Shore 2 Shore is new so who knows. Good luck. If you go 3-0 you'll get to face off against Express or Igloo. Should be a good game for a few minutes.

I don't like the pack, but in reality they can't win. Either they beat up on 2024 and are told they should play up. If they play up they get yelled at for playing up for multiple reasons.

Didn't the Pack scrimmage the Warriors last summer twice? Didn't the Warriors beat them by 12 the first time and 14 the second? Guys, the warriors are a good team, but not elite and they made your team look like they just started playing lacrosse. Time to stop.

OK let me rephrase that to soothe your frazzled nerves. I don't like the pack because of some of their parents like you. For reasons many have talked about on here. Now go drink some hot tea with honey to sooth your vocal cords to be ready to yell at your son this weekend.

Let me see if I can help with what he meant:

First- Seems this guy named "Right" has a problem with the Bandits. Probably some childhood thing when his friends always tied him up when they played Rob the stagecoach!

Second - Let's go beat up!! - I heard about this pregame ritual the WP Dad's participate in. Strange, seems they all gather in a tight circle and J Off.

Lastly, he agrees the Younger Wolfpack Team is WEAK.

Igloo definitely has improved and will get respect that needs to be earned by winning a few games against quality opponents. Once that happens they will be considered a better team than last year. As for HB, they will be fine. They are consistent and have proved themselves the past year by only losing to Bandits and a few 2022 teams. 2023 year has many players that are talented and this year will prove to be competitive. I think that's what you are looking for when it comes to Long Island Lax and competition. Good luck to all teams and players this weekend and lets remember its fall lacrosse with many players playing other sports!!!!!!

It's amazing that dad's come on here and post this nonsense. They are 10. Enjoy it and stop living through your kid. Every team has a bottom and it's always the same guys who complain. The dad who pays his way on to a team as the last kid then has the gall to write derogatory comments about the opponents. Who cares. Go to a team where you will actually contribute and be happy. Tuck your child in and wish him luck!!!!

Even better. They lost to a worse team. Lost to Shore to Shore. That's a real bad loss my friend. Again, that team lacks any sort of desire to win.

Bandits
Shore to Shore
igloo
Honey Badgers

That's is some slide from fame in just a few months. Sad.

Guessing English isn't your first language. You can prob get a tutor in manhassett


Forget a tutor; Manhassett needs lacrosse lessons. Kids are horrible.

Where was the Igloo team from the Columbus Day Invitational? That team that played today was a shell of the one a few weeks ago. I'm guessing they had "help" Columbus Day. They looked mediocre today.

Igloo lost to Honey Badgers and did not make the finals. Honey Badgers vs. S2S in finals. HB won by 2 in first game and lost by 2 in finals. Great day and some exciting new rivalries being created.!

Stupidity at its finest. I am not looking to rank these teams, rather just addressing that you called Shore to Shore a worse team than Igloo, then you ranked them ahead of Igloo. Which is it? Has Shore to Shore even played Igloo? And Honey Badgers beat both Igloo and Shore to Shore just TODAY so not sure how you can claim such a fall from grace? Kinda silly.

Legit question. Why are Bandits in "another league " is because of recruiting, practice ? Why are they so much better? And what happens to that team moving forward? Will they discard the loyal players at the bottom of the depth chart like Crush did?
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2023-5th Grade Fall 2015 Summer 2016 - 10/24/15 11:22 PM
The Bandits are in another league because of their continuity same players. Same coaches And they practice. The gap is because of that and it seems to have grown. Some great 2023 games today and by today's results after the bandits the other three teams are very comparable, makes it exciting. We haven't had our team together very long and we won a tournament today which was surprising but great !

Like Crush they have a dominant player (middle, instead of attack man). They also only really play the top 14 kids on the team. Those 14 kids have largely stayed the same and played and practiced together for past 4 years.

Bandits played at Blatant yesterday under 2023 91. They played in the 6th grade "B" division. I personally would rather they play in the 6th grade "A" division. My son has played them 4 times over the last 3 years and its the same score 12-0, 19-0, 15-1. I don't like the hiding under 2023 91. They really should just be honest and call themselves the Bandits and play where they belong. I'm waiting to see if one of them actually drives to a tourney one day (just kidding, but almost serious).

I understand that everyone is about the "top" teams but there are other teams in the 2023 grouping that gave good effort yesterday. Kudos to all the boys that get out there and try and to the parents that aren't compmete jerks.

I understand your thoughts here but many of their boys had football last night and the A was the later bracket (championship was 5pm ) so not much of a choice. Nice to see the great sportsmanship by all teams and a very well run tournament by Blatant ! First class operation

Just because 3 or 4 parents are "disturbing", don't say "the Wolfpack parents". I happen to know many of them and it's only about two sets of parents that ruin it for the whole group. Don't put them together.

JS promised parents they wouldn't lose a game. At the end of the summer they had problems with a 3V town team in the A division. He won't let that happen again.

One thing I know about sports is having problems and listing are two different things seems the Bandits at least have a plan they play grade level first weekend out then play up in a 6 b and I'm sure they'll keep raising the comp as they always do. Our first weekend we played up got beat up then played grade and were inconsistent we don't seem to have a plan Thought the igloo express game was a terrific game . Will be interesting to see these teams grow, does express miss BM I believe so

You should have asked how many of the boys are 2022's? Strange how this big talent pool emerged out of nowhere. RVC 2023 is not very good and Sourh Shore????? Wouldn't be the first time he cheated with older kids.

Why does everyone have to cheat to put together a good team? Wasn't there a lot of movement among teams plus the disbanding of Manhasset 32 at this age (a team that took the HBs to OT and split with Igloo this past summer)? Sounds like you are a little afraid of Shore 2 Shore...

I watched the whole game - didn't see anything funny. It was a great game by both teams. The level of play was excellent by both sides with a slight edge to S2S. And no crazy parents (that I saw)!

Yeah, that's why they're on the team... to do community service. Get over yourself guy. None of those kids are on it for that reason. It's great that that aspect is involved, but that is secondary to everyone but the organizer. My older son played on the original team till last year. They had it right. Now it's WAAAAY different. It's all a bunch of crazy parents who see it as a cheap way for their kid to play more lax. Save me the holier than thou crap.

It was nice to watch the Bandits fogo change uniforms to his Mamas boyz in between games.


There were also Outlaws that were changing into MB uniforms-- pick a team

Why can't kids play on more than one team?

IMO I think a Club is misrepresenting itself. When you win games and Championships with “borrowed” players it is not representative of talent that Club recruited. When parents are paying thousands of dollars for a Club team, you are under the assumption the product (and wins) are legit. When you see Championship wins on a website, you assume that came from Club talent and Clubs coaches. Instead the reality of the situation is the team only wins when they have guest appearances from talent that other elite clubs developed. It’s false advertising.

Second a coach is actually taking credit for a player he didn’t actually develop and train. Why any coach would want someone else taking credit for their time and talents is beyond understanding. JS deserves a lot of royalties from a lot of Clubs.

But the overriding issue is the parents paying thousands of dollars to have the program develop their child, NOT to win games. The 'guest' players take valuable time away from the kids that don't get the opportunity to play because of the 'guest' player. If you're on a team that uses 'guest' players, you're really getting ripped off.

This is why lacrosse needs to follow USA hockey. Every team submits a certified roster to USA hockey for the season. For each game, a uniform score sheet (same form for all games) is used, with each team sticking its roster on the score sheet, which lists each player and jersey number. Each kid wears a jersey with their name on the back and the jersey number. Everything is open and transparent, and can be checked at HQ if need be. And a birth certificate is submitted with the rosters to USA hockey.

Lacrosse needs some sort of sanction. No one knows who's really on the team, how old they are or what grade they are in. Until this sanction happens, cheating will continue.

I agree whole heartedly about sanctions centered around age and grade. I don't agree about the Who's on what team. I also disagree that US lacrosse only lets a player play for one group (had be brought up prior years). As you get older you will want to have the flexibility to play for multiple groups or have the option. That helps you son grow and gain different perspectives and training.

These tournaments are not a part of some sort of league where there needs to be consistency. One weekend to the next, you are feeding another programs tournament. If there were a series and league involvement then Id say a static rosters. if not they are truly all independent tournaments.

Each weekend is mutually exclusive to the last or future weekends games. Who cares who you played for.

a good coach wont limit you as well he will promote you playing across clubs. A real coach will support you playing outside your club (when it doesn't conflict with you club).

Badger Dad here, not taking away from anything AJ is doing but I know I speak for most parents on this team when I say. Last years dynamic between AJ and Bob was absolutely the best I've ever seen and MY child thrived on it. That is why the team was extremely successful. All about having fun but I didn't pay $2500 for FUN. I want to win games and tournaments. If you want FUN, stay with PAL. By the way, it's very obvious to know who you are since you are in the minority. You are better off just staying silent so the team can regain itself.

Agreed there is no structured league or series. However there is an underlying assumption there is Club continuity. This board is filled with posts ranking one club over another and team performance at various tournaments. And when players decide which Clubs they want to play for, it is usually based on team track record, which is assumed comes from the coaching and not guest players.
Tournaments are independently run and that is partly where a player gets their growth and experience – playing against teams from MD, PA, VA. Big learning opportunity. Players also get varied perspectives and training playing for their town/school coaches and Club coaches – that’s were multidimensional training comes in.
When a club brings in Studs for guest appearances it is doubtful it is for the benefit of the player and more likely the benefit of the Club name. Why else bring in a guest player? Because they are short players? Nobody buys that line anymore. I would be curious a Club Directors perspective, particularly those who recruit, train and mentor those players. A player that plays on two teams in one tournament is potentially playing 6-10 games in one day. Say that player gets hurt in his guest appearance game and can’t play in any of the games for his regular Club. Or maybe the player just gets tired, and his performance drops off for his other Club games. I would think a Club coach would have an issue with that.
It doesn’t seem healthy for any youth player and will make them far more prone to injury at some point. I would think this would be a concern for the overall health of the sport as well as coaches. Also curious the perspective of the Tournament Directors that do have rules banning players from playing on more than one team in one tournament. Why would they have that rule in place?

The above works for those kids that are lax 24/7 and who are elite players where D-III is basically their worst case scenario. It does not, however, create an ideal environment for the more casual player - the good athlete who plays multiple sports who will likely be nothing more than a decent HS lacrosse player. I have spoken to parents of kids who have dabbled in the summer travel lax scene but who have not returned - finding it unorganized, overpriced, and with uneven competition. Seeing kids play for multiple teams in the same tournament is a major turnoff for the large majority of parents. The opinion expressed above is certainly the minority one - maybe not the minority one amongst people who live and breathe this stuff - but its the minority opinion amongst prospective customers I am sure. Parents who are exposed to other youth sports find travel lax clownish. Parents who are all in with lacrosse don't realize this - they don't talk to others outside their lax cliques.

What the owners of these clubs are missing is that if they structured things more like USA hockey (and what some other sports do as well), they would make more money. They already have the lax freaks. By making certain changes (enforcing age and participation restrictions, etc) I believe they would grow their numbers and teams, and capture the more causal families. For a 24/7 elite laxer, playing against double holdbacks from MD may seem like a rite of passage that will get the kid better. For the more casual family, its "screw this, we will not be back".

My kids love lacrosse and hockey. With regard to hockey, they play about 50 games over 6 months - usually 2 leagues plus 2 weekend travel tournaments. Almost all games are competitive. You know all opponents are on age and belong on that team. Schedules are set, leagues are joined, and tournaments are entered based on the strength of your team. The clubs almost always get this right, in large part, because the opponents are always on age, and no one is using guest players that would tip the competitive balance. Also, no one is seeing their kid lose ice time to a guest player - nor their kid being bossed by older kids.

And USA hockey does have spring elite teams and summer events where kids get to play with other clubs/coaches/kids to obtain the benefits (exposure, competition, coaching) that such provides. But it is done outside the season.

One impediment that lacrosse has is that it still honors the Town season. Prime lacrosse time (March-early June) is hands off for travel lacrosse.

"I" paid the $2500 and most will understand that it was meant as "I want the boys to win". Kids get better with practice. Tournaments are the end result of practice. We keep a score and we track W&L's. Every parent out there wants their child/team to win. You're one of those guys who doesn't like the MVP trophy but rather likes the PARTICIPATION trophy. Got it.

Shore to Shore is a talented 2023 team comprised mostly of kids who are born in 2004 not 2005. They are very talented but will be unable to participate in any U11 tournament based on age. Again, another reason to come up with a sanction organization that has guidelines and rules.

Make it strictly by birth year. 2005 on the side of the shorts, not 2023. 2005 on tourney machine, not 2023. Easy-peasy. And the college coaches should welcome this - as the kids get older. Best way to predict future success is to have kids play vs kids there own age. And the big clubs should welcome this. Rules that are strictly enforced across the board will, over time, favor the clubs with more $, more marketing, more bling, more teams, etc.

Obviously a solid team. Poached kids from express, igloo, 32, then sprinkled in a few others. Not sure about holdbacks but that's irrelevant. Part of their performance may have been from clubs playing everyone since it's the fall. I'm sure teams will shorten bench next time they play in summer.

Shore2Shore is a good team. Did that really surprise anyone? Everyone knew that 1/2 of a very good Manhasset team, some Igloo and Badgers were starting it. It doesn't take a genius to realize that they would be good. We all also knew that the HB's would most likely be taking a small step back. Still very good. Igloo showed that they have potential, albeit dramatically inconsistent (based on two tourneys). I agree with the prior poster, though. Fall is really meaningless. Teams will have different kids on them by the summer and coaches with be more in tune with their players' strengths and weaknesses.

No really good additions, they are much weaker at the lefty attack position, they lost a fairly decent face-off kid and had negative coaching change.

Fact: They are not that good.
Fact: defensman plays on Express 2022


d pole was playing


You kidding right?

Ok. So if there are NO 2022 players whatsoever than what about that 2022 defenseman? And how about those ex-Minutemen players? Wasn't that a 2022 team???

There are 2 players from that minutemen team: the defenseman you speak of and an attackman. Neither are 2022- they both played up on the minutemen. They are both in 5th grade - they are legit 2023 players. If you are going to accuse, please do your homework. Anyone else you think is a 6th grader?

So let me get this straight. Little Johnny and (his full ride to Duke, Hopkins, wherever) team lost to a bunch of kids I have not been secretly checking out (WEIRD) for years to see how Johnny compare and so they must be cheaters because I don't know them.

Oh man this is great entertainment. I have my popcorn ready.

I have never heard of a boy playing "up" on travel Club team. Nobody does that. Town/PAL yes because they are age based--- but NEVER travel. Something doesn't sound right.

where have you been? At the younger ages its doable. As the boys get older it gets more competitive. Last year the boys tried out for 2022 but it was decided not to play up again. These were south shore thunder boys. That team had 2022 and 2023 kids some of which played for minutemen. Its not a conspiracy. They were playing with their friends.

In other words, by birth date and NY school cutoff dates for enrollmemt in kindergarten, these are kids that should/could be in 6th grade, but for whatever reason are not, so techincally speaking they are in 5th grade and playing on grade, but in reality should/could play on a 6th grade team with kids their own age.

I don't understand why teams don't own up to this practice. There is a loophole in the current system that every travel team takes advantage of. The best is when kids who are the same age as my son but in a grade lower (for whatever reason) play on a 2023 team and the parents say the kids are "playing up," and then when they realize their sons can be standouts playing on a team in their actual grade, they pull them down to play on a 2024 team where they are now playing against kids in their own grade who might actually be a whole year or more younger.

Every team has a few of these kids and it's not against the rules, so why not own up to it?

Your 5th grader probably wouldn't know if he was held back? You're joking right? If he was that far removed from reality, I think you would need to consider something a lot more drastic.

Hold back your 5th grader, why would you even consider that. Too be better in lacrosse. This isn't football, basketball, baseball, where superstar players have a shot at making millions in a sport after college. A lax player may make 10 grand a year in the MLL. What's the upside, I don't get it. Ill tell you this, had my parents held me back in 5th grade, I would have been devastated. All my friends go to 6 th grade, I stay a 5 th grader. The reason for this isn't academic, isn't social skills, isn't being ill. The reason is lacrosse. Crazy how insane parents have become.

Not trying to stir things up here, but I've been told that one of the new teams in this age group has 2-3 players that are actually in 6th grade. Being that club lacrosse on LI is grade based, isn't this CHEATING? I am pretty sure that these kids played on another team last year and followed their Farmingdale based coach to their new team. Imagine being a quality 5th grader, yet losing out on a lot of playing time because your organization is willing to cheat and have a kid(s) play in 2023 even though they are 2022? I have heard this from more then one source, by the way.

Again, there are no 6th graders on S2S - NONE. Everyone is a 5th grader. There was a 5th grader last year on the 4th grade Igloo team that was coached by the F'Dale guy(that all the Igloo higher-ups knew about and were ok with). He is not on S2S and is a current member of the 6th grade Outlaws Select team (very good player). The other player everyone is concerned about is from Manhattan - he has a fall birthday but is a 5th grader.

Everyone please stop with the "older kid" nonsense. They are a good team with really good coaching...

The answer is none - they all have kids with bdays in the fall (and some with bdays in the spring and summer of 2004).

S2S is all US Lacrosse eligible - born after 9/1/2004.

Again, whoever is saying that they have 6th graders is trying to stir the pot. S2S is all age appropriate. Let it go...

Who cares? So your little kid is not on the best team? Try out for S2S next year. They have played one tourney. They're good, but lets wait till the Spring before you all crap yourselves. Igloo looked great on Columbus Day, but not so great last time out. Badgers looked awesome last year, but the pack has clearly caught up with them. This is how it works so please don't act surprised in the Spring when it all changes again. Everyone needs to realize that any team can win on any given day. That's what makes it interesting. And yes, every team has holdbacks. All of them. There's nothing wrong with that based on the rules of most LI tourneys. Get over it.

Understood - AGAIN, S2S is all US Lacrosse eligible - born after 9/1/2004. All grade appropriate, all in 5th grade.

By the way every other state where lacrosse is relevant uses a 9/1 cut-off which is why US Lacrosse uses it.

Sure about that 9/1/04 cutoff? Check again S2S dad. Lefty attackman on S2S has January 04 birthday. Any PAL coach can confirm. No secret. Could he be in 5th grade? Could be. But stop with the US Lacrosse date nonsense. He's clearly way older. His coach cheated with Igloo last year. So when there's smoke there's usually fire.

So somebody puts together a team that is not a traditional power and they win so of course they must be cheating? They are all in 5th grade - I am not sure how many times it must be said. Instead of excuses why not take the high road and congratulate them on a good win?

I am guessing there will be many more competitive games in the future at this age. Enjoy it. All of that is good for LI lacrosse...

BM the ultimate Troll.
In Internet slang, a troll (/ˈtroʊl/, /ˈtrɒl/) is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory,[1] extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog) with the deliberate intent of provoking readers into an emotional response[2] or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion,[3] often for their own amusement.

This guy isn't on the team, he's just stirring it up from the outside. Igloo has a completely open dialogue between parents and ownership, emails and cell numbers are clearly posted on the website. Only a fool would use this platform to complain.

Yeah. I have AA's phone #. And all of your #s on Team Snap too. But this forum is to shine light on dishonest practices to inform future parents. AA lied to us last year when he said no holdbacks on the team. Anyone on the team last year was at that first meeting and can confirm. And yet there were holdbacks then and we have holdbacks now. Yes, it's ok under grade-based rules but that's not what AA claimed. And he lied when he said he didn't know there was a kid a grade older on the team. JC knew and said it was discussed at beginning of season. And he lied this year when he pretended that SH wasn't going to coach. Please that deal was done way before tryouts. We all knew it. My son loves the uniforms so I'm stuck. But don't think for a minute that I'm happy or trust the organization. You can cover it up. But truth is truth.

You are what's wrong with parents nowadays. Youre 'stuck' because your son likes the uniforms? WOW! Way to be a parent! Don't stand up for what YOU believe is Right!? let your child dictate his future. Im sure he doesn't overhear conversations that you have about this either. "its ok that my team cheats, we look sick in these uniforms." project that out 20yrs.. "its ok we robbed that bank, look at my new suits "
Teach your kid YOUR VALUES!

Warning to Parents:
Travel lacrosse is not rec league or PAL. Its meant for kids who are looking to compete against the best, regardless of a few months of age.
Baltimore, DC, Boston, and Philly are not playing by the same rules as LI. They have mastered the holdback and its only getting worse. Do yourself a favor and get used to it, its actually probably better to play against older kids now so they get used to it.
Worry about your own kids growth and not wins and losses.
If your upset with your club, have some balls and call the coach or owner..

So your son was on this team last year -- you were unhappy then. You had your son try out and accept a spot again this year. Your still unhappy. But you won't leave because your son likes the uniform? Dude noone is taking you as a credible source of information. You have serious issues. Seems your the complainer that noone wants to stand near on the sidelines. Someone should inform you maybe you should handle your matter privately. You sound like a psycho!

Maybe you should move your son to another team where they don't have holdbacks. Hahahahahahahaha. Good luck with your search!

The whole SH thing was orchestrated last year and unfolded at Stowe. He was always going to be the coach. Wait until next year when PS is gone and SH is the head coach. SH destroyed the 2023 Manhasset 32 program and will destroy the 2023 Igloo program - nobody wants to play for him. The only kid he cares about is his own. There are a lot of unhappy people who feel there was a lot of sneaky, under the table dealings that went on...

You Manhasset people are tough. A guy takes his kid out of town and it's a scandal?? Have to imagin the group that took the rest of the team to S2S had more to do with the teams issues than one kid and a coach leaving. If that gets you upset you'll never be prepared for the insanity that lies ahead.

You know a lot of parent get smoke blown up there you know what by these travel teams Telling them they will not loose a game? Making package deals to get certain kids on a team only to cut the package kid later. Sometime our. Kids (and parents) just loose. It happens. S2S lost in last game and came back and played a bit better in second game and won. That's why we play the games. No illusions that they will beet them next time, but good to see there is real competition. That's what it should be about. Rather have my son loose a 8-7 game then win 11-0. Looking forward to spring and how things shake out. First time on this site and boy do folks take 5thgrade lax way took serious. My guy is 5th grader and don't care what sore losers say about S2S. The kids work hard and love playing for DK. Bottom line is don't believe the hype most of these teams sell you

You are half correct. They, and other towns, only get upset if you take a top skilled kid(s) out of town. You can take the less skilled players of the grade and play for your rival town and no one will care. Oh wait, but it's about town pride. Lesson learned: Do whatever you want with your own kid and never look back.

I've known BM for many years. None of my boys play for Express. Our older boys played together in the past. I watched him and AJ create that team from nothing and make it into a very competitve team. If you're a parent on the team today, you're an idiot to sit there and trash the coach who made your kid a lacrosse player. If you are a parent he cut, move on already and if you are one of those who left because you couldn't take the intensity of driving the kids to get better, you're just an AH because it only gets more intense.

He puts in countless hours to make your kids better yet you still bash him. It's honestly crazy to sit here and read the crap you write. Be gratefull that he did what he did because that team would be nowhere if it weren't for him.

If you are so brave; go tell him face to face what you think. See how that works out.

Bandits are going to have a hard time getting by Channy's 2022 team. This will bring the Bandits down to earth to see what its like to play age based. The most beneficial aspect of this is they are playing against kids their own age and will be a good indication of their opponents in Florida.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2023-5th Grade Fall 2015 Summer 2016 - 11/24/15 06:02 PM
Except the BANDITS are playing up and will NOT be playing kids there own age. For two boys that are older but on grade the entire team should not be generalized. The stronger players are all 10. Plus at least they are playing UP. If the express is so strong why would they not challenge themselves and play 2021? Regardless this is what JS does with all his teams play them up and challenge themselves if they lose they lose. Back to earth occurs when ANYBODY their own grade makes them sweat. Would like to see more teams challenge themselves up instead of down

You can't be serious?? Check Channy's roster. There are definitely holdbacks. Just as there are on every other lacrosse team on LI. You're going to need a better excuse than that when they lose to a younger team.

Was at the game as I posted on 22 board I had a score of 11-7 Our midfielders were just too big and strong but I was Really impressed with skill and grit of the bandits. Having been through this for awhile it was very refreshing to see the mutual respect between players coaches and even parents !! Great day great weather

Were the Bandits playing on age? They must be reeling from the loss. Tough to take when you go around bragging and tweeting like the do. Guess,when you're on top, there's only one place to go!

How dramatic. You make it seem like the US and Soviets getting along in the 80's. It's freakin youth lacrosse. Why would people especially kids not "get along " ? I guess because of nuts like you.

The stronger teams were in the other bracket. Legacy had a decent A team last year, but for some reason many of the boys went elsewhere. They combined the B team with the remaining A players. They are a competitive B team as currently built. Express Haugen, Express Channy, Outlaws and GC would be considered A teams (to varying degrees).

The channy team has about 30 kids on the roster and the third team can't consistently throw and catch. Gotta be hard for those parents that forked over all that money. And I know some on the 3rd team were told the 2 teams would be about even. I'm all for all kids getting a chance to play at all levels, all a-b-c team nonsense aside. But not getting a lot of playing time on one team and getting blown out on the other each game must be tough. The ball is constantly in their end. At least charge lower teams less. Or give more practice time.

Badgers looked good as always.

All of them? Wow. Maryland must be awesome. Give it a rest. All LI A division teams have talent. So do Md AA division teams. The Badgers already lost to an LI team. The will probably lose to a Maryland team or 2. So will everyone else. They are still a very dominant club.

TOTAL money grab I saw the Channy team and it looked like they had an entire team and a 1/2 on the bench. What a Pig Especially when you hand a team to your kid with 30 players on it. How can he possibly succeed? A lot of those kids will get NO time come spring

they're gonna have to figure something out. i can't imagine parents not starting to say something yet. teams do it because teams get away with it i guess. between that and the white team they're doing a huge disservice to the parents, kids, and coaches of those teams.

Good assessment. That attack men was going to hurt someone. He was running over kids. The coach finally took him out when it was getting to obvious. He plays with them sometime is the spring when he is not playing on his correct team.

Outlaws will be fine once spring comes. They had no coach this weekend it was a s**t show with coahing and subbing they used old plays from last year and didnt know some kids names and they still competed with the three teams. The head coach was not there but when he is and gets to know his kids they will be fine come spring.

Wow! What a post from either a parent or owner of the Outlaws. I'm speechless. I would never let my son play for Ourlaws. I've been fortunate to have a much better teaching and coaching experience as well as organization for the ANNUAL team fee, not Spring fee.

Hmmm... I wonder who wrote this? Someone who moved from Outlaws to Igloo maybe?? I wonder who that could be! Too funny! I have three sons that play travel. One of them plays for an Outlaws team (different grade level). The experience has be EXACTLY like my experience with my other two playing 91. I wouldn't touch Igloo with a 10 foot pole. I'm looking for stability and so far that organization has been anything but. Good luck with them and all of the coach chasing your future will hold.

Wow! What a post from either a parent or owner of the Outlaws. I'm speechless. I would never let my son play for Ourlaws. I've been fortunate to have a much better teaching and coaching experience as well as organization for the ANNUAL team fee, not Spring fee.


Hmmm... I wonder who wrote this? Someone who moved from Outlaws to Igloo maybe?? I wonder who that could be! Too funny! I have three sons that play travel. One of them plays for an Outlaws team (different grade level). The experience has be EXACTLY like my experience with my other two playing 91. I wouldn't touch Igloo with a 10 foot pole. I'm looking for stability and so far that organization has been anything but. Good luck with them and all of the coach chasing your future will hold.

There's a lot of other well run, organized, and very good coaches who show up to every game and who know their players names other than Igloo.

Outlaws will be fine once spring comes.

No one else charges an annual fee. Everyone else charges extra for winter, fall, etc..

False, and you wouldn't know because you are limited in your experience with the Outlaws and 91. The point is that there are much better clubs who don't pull the bs that Outlaws or 91 pull. You are having a self proclaimed bad experience with your club. Do your research and look for a better club and move on next year. You'll be thankful in the long run.

GC looked pretty goot. But if you take away the coaches kid and that 6th grader they had on attack, they are well below avg


Good assessment. That attack men was going to hurt someone. He was running over kids. The coach finally took him out when it was getting to obvious. He plays with them sometime is the spring when he is not playing on his correct team.

The nonsense Igloo pulled this year was epic. AA telling parents who the coaches were and we're not going to be, certain individuals telling people he wouldn't coach and then after tryouts all of that changing and the lies being exposed. SO many unhappy parents on that team. Can't wait to see next years shakeup and fallout

"Self proclaimed bad experience"? Do you know what self-proclaimed means? I'm having a great experience with all of my boys' teams, and as far as I can tell, so are they. But please enlighten me, what are the "much better" clubs than 91 and Outlaws that charge a one-time annual fee? It shouldn't take you long to respond because there are none.

Was I complaining about "everything" or was I simply pointing out the displeasure of being lied to by the programs director and the person he hired to coach my son.. Would you be happy if you were paying someone and entrusting them with your son and they lied to you SH ?

There is no team out there on age that can compete. They are in their own league.

If your sons team has played them you understand.

If your sons team has not played them yet, get ready to see 20+ goals go in.

Not entirely true. But I think the poster was talking about the top 5 teams in general, not just the Bandits. I think there are definitely some teams that can compete. Laxachusettes Black is solid, Looney's in MD are good too. There are actually a few other teams in Md that will beat many of the top 5 LI teams mentioned; not all the time, of course, but definitely have a shot.

And don't discount the team from Canada who made a lot of appearances last year. They may not have won some games but they were only a goal away in many cases. They had a lot of talent. They just need to fine tune. Never know what another year of training will bring.

then why when they play up do they need their "guest" player. they are playing more competitive games playing up but this will all level out in a couple years. no one ever said I was on the greatest 5th grade lacrosse team. sit back and enjoy the ride while it lasts. 20 goals plus is an example no coach should be setting at this age. get some perspective people.

I call your post and say that you were not there. If you were and your son played Box, you'd know why the Canadians won the Olympics, Denver won, and who the Thompsons are.
