Would like to see all the teams, at this age, play each other more often. Did Wolfpack play anyone other than Taz?

2024 high voltage is legit also,saw them play some solid town teams yesterday at greenport and looked like they were in full control. there were many 2024 teams there and was happy we did not have to play them or the teams they faced. i was told high voltage is mostly if not all 3v kids. very strong bunch of 3v at 2024 level.

pretty sure the Pack and Taz kids your talking about actually are from 3 Village from what I was told and there are about 15 kids on that team from 3 Village. I asked one of the parents on the side lines yesterday when my son played them. Nice people. One crazy dad screaming his head off.

sachem has faced most if not all 2024 town teams either through tourneys or pal and hands down high voltage clearly is top town team around. They handled us very well and also 2 other town teams that were on top of 2024 food chain. keep working hard and will see next year.

Hardly a town team and sachem is one of the worst at this age.

No reason for the 'pack to play any of these teams. Taz is the closest competition and they are still trying to catch them. They play up in 90% of their tournaments. The 2024 competition is just not there yet. Don't start throwing barbs at the comment, it's all true. Most of this team's competition for the foreseeable future will be from the 2023 division.

Honestly, any A team can play up and beat weak B teams. That's not really saying much. Most decent 2023 teams would destroy the pack.

That goes for any team playing up any year. Not just pack. A good team should beat another good team, if they are a year older.

Other than top 2 teams there are plenty of spots. Wouldn't go nuts. Tryout for 1 or two that are convenient and have a good rep. Odds are he makes it given they will all be taking 23-24 kids. If he doesn't, the dust will settle and a bunch of teams will be adding through the fall. Wouldn't be surprised if there is another round of tryouts in September for most of the teams to fill rosters.

The playing field will be much more level next year. Alot of movement. In my opinion. Maybe LI teams will actually play each other more...

Remember you have something all these teams want. A check book.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2024-4th Grade Fall 2015 Summer 2016 - 08/04/15 02:04 PM
the boys should try out for 2-3 teams If you can afford to. Their dream team, even if you think it might be a stretch, and then 1- 2 other. Tryouts are very import for other reasons besides making a team. It prepares a child for what to expect for future possibilities and opportunities. It's much like an interview. As an adult the more interviews you go to the more prepared and confident you get. So when you go for the big one you get the job. The is the very same idea. I can tell you right now that even if you are confident your child is going to remain on his current team you are doing him a disservice if you don't continue to push him and remove him from his comfort zone. These are the uncontrolled settings that will build the boys confidence and prep him so that one day he'll make the UA team ect.... The other thing is that you never know. People run their mouths on this site about what positions are up for grab when all they are really doing is making an "educated guess" (I use that rearm lightly) based on what they saw throughout the year or heard from a friend of a friend of a friend. Don't be so sure these top teams are such a lock. In the end what is the worst case... You got 4-6 days of clinics. One last thought... Nobody has the right to pressure you into not trying out for another team. Provided that someone is not offering free tuition or some sort of ridiculous deal you are obligated to no one. Rest assured that if 20 mini Rob Pannells,Paul Rabils, and Brian Spalina's came marching into their tryouts you would be tossed out like yesterday's trash. this is a business plain and simple. You are naive if you think there is loyalty.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2024-4th Grade Fall 2015 Summer 2016 - 08/04/15 02:19 PM
Not only are the boys trying out for these teams, as a parent - we are looking at how they are running the tryout, the quality of the coaches that are hopefully identified, the other boys trying out. Even though we are paying for a tryout - you've got to view it as the club is trying out as well.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2024-4th Grade Fall 2015 Summer 2016 - 08/04/15 02:40 PM
I totally agree, If you have the time and the money, why not take advantage of the opportunity to have your son fight for ground balls against other kids, do the math on most of these tryouts, its 15 -20 per hour to tryout . 91 gives u 6 hours for 16 dollars an hour. whats the downside. even if you have zero interest in playing for 91 or any other team for that matter. at the bare minimum, its practice for the team you actually want to play for

where in Nassau? If Hofstra isn't too far you should check out Blue Fish. I know one of the coaches starting this up for 2024. Real good guy very determined to make this organization successful. Great coach. Good with younger players. Worth at least a look. Since its new it will probably be on the less expensive side. I believe Coach Tierny from Hofstra is involved as well. My only concern is where exactly will practices be held?? I would want clarification on that.

On any give day Madlax, the'pack and Bethesda can beat each other. There is no real #1 out of these 3 teams. They are the best 3 2024 teams around. The skill level is that much better than the rest of the field. These 3 teams will make sure they meet up at a couple of tournament's this coming season. BTW Bethesda and 'pack families had mutual respect for each other at Beach Lax, it was great to see. Very different than my daughters team. Parents are more vicious than the boys teams.

Do we know who the 2024 Bluefish coach is going to be? If so has he ever coached youth lacrosse? Being a great college player or pro doesn't always translate to being a good youth coach.

Also, sounds like access to the bubble will be in addition to your tuition.

Still seems like it could be a solid Nassau based program that could end up doing what Legacy did for Suffolk. They have the resources and the practice space. It would be nice to know if they were going to have a dedicated coach that was going to start practing in the fall/winter
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2024-4th Grade Fall 2015 Summer 2016 - 08/06/15 04:02 PM
previous poster mentioned a 2024 guy at the bluefish, just wondering who it is. Powers is a big name and will get kids to come to the tryout. Hofstra as your home base and winter training even for additional fees is a good start for a club.

Thanks for clarifying. I thought that it sounded strange that they would replace Zummo with BM.

91 Wolfpack and Legacy Taz were the top 2 teams on LI this past season. After those tow teams the talent level evens out.

Igloo is a solid program. Lots of people talking about the Bluefish this year, They are new but have great backing. Do some research based on were you live and how far you want to travel. There are almost too many options at this age.

The fact is that coach told the parents before the Pack game in Philly that the team was looking to make upgrades for the following season and that everyone shoul have a plan B. Of course there is a core of kids that isn't going anywhere but if your son didn't play vs the Pack in Philly considered yourself in the plan B category. I'm sure Legacy would take some of those kids back but why would you pay $2k for a team where your son wasn't going to play in the biggest games of the year? That is fhe reason there will be 8 plus openings.

No doubt but the Pack will add 2-3 kids and the Taz will add 9-12.

How has your sons org "done it" as you say were there haven't even been tryouts yet? We are stil talking about 2024's correct?

Travel lacrosse is about winning in tournaments. Tight games are a tough lesson on kids this age who dont play. As the travel teams get younger and younger each year, the "lesson" on their young brains get tougher and tougher. Seeing a kid crying after their team WINS is tough to see, much less console. It is something that every parent must come to grips with. Do you want your kids to be on the bottom 1/3 of the team that does well? Or would you rather your son be on the top 1/3 of a mediocre team?

Is it about the practices or the games?

I will ask my son that before we sign up for tryouts, and go with what he says. Just because it is about the kid, right?

Don't know where that hostility is coming from. Yes the coach said he is making "upgrades", but it's not uncommon for parents to also see if there may be other avenues better geared toward the individual goals their son has. Especially this year. In 4th grade programs get a lot more intense. This year is where the core team really starts to become established. If players are going to make the jump, often times its now because it become more and more difficult to penetrate those teams as the years progress.

I disagree with the comment, the talent level evens out.I watched all of the teams this year and do agree that the pack and taz were the two best teams. But I saw there were many boys that could play on either of those two teams. There are 3 to 4 kids on our own town team that could start on the pack.

He is a disloyal guy. left his 91 2020 team a couple of years ago and then took another Team to 91 last year but then left 91 again this year for a better deal I hear. You never know where he (and you) will end up.

Sorry not sure what you mean. Barone coaching 2024 and his assistant is? Is it the same guy as last year?

Would like to know some of this stuff pre tryouts for these places. I think its a big deal, especially with the amount of $$$$ for these teams.

Agreed. It should be mandatory that coaches & practice locations be posted. I understand times can change but, for that amount of money for travel teams...cmon.

He is not disloyal. He does what is best for the kids and the team. He did not leave his 2020 team, he chose not to coach- period. Some kids stayed with new coach, some went to other clubs, some moved up. Period- end of story. I would gather that if the kids/families follow him to different clubs, then he must be doing something right.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2024-4th Grade Fall 2015 Summer 2016 - 08/12/15 11:53 PM
I don't dispute that. I just don't know how he will be able to give both teams the attention that they deserve and that we are paying for. What if there is conflicts with tourneys? What team is he choosing to coach and who will take over for the other team. That's where its even more important to know who are the assistant coaches. Hopefully they update their website and have this info available.

Unfortunately some ended up with no where to go and no team.

That's a reasonable concern. But I am sure that all steps will be taken to avoid conflicts. And this is something that is a great to ask before committing. Along with practice location and schedules.

Son was on Crush (2nd line middie). Left because he didn't like the way JS treated the kids and the win at all costs mentality. Has no kid on either team - just likes coaching. Cares about the kids and they will definitely get better. As s a coach he is straight shooter and fair. Overall a great guy and great coach. But the other writer was correct - be prepared for some salty language - in a good way!

New to this - given all the clubs out there, what do you think the top 3 or 4 teams are? Not tourny wins etc necessarily, but coaches that can really coach? Make kids better over the course of the season? Kids will love the sport MORE at the end of the seaon, not be happy that its over.
Thank you.

Top Teams for what type of player? The answers will be different depending on your son and his playing ability.

If you want your kid to have passion for the game and learn to play the right way, he is the coach you want. Cares more about developing the kids than winning. For anyone to say disloyal, that's crazy. He's one of the few loyal coaches around and he's been around this scene for a while. Great coach

Teams are already set, no point in the tryouts. His kids don't need to show up. Same old story.

That is a valid concern. If his team is already formed, there may be just a few openings. I wouldn't rely on just this try out and you should have a plan b and c.

This is what parents get upset over. Clubs, coaches etc should be upfront. Earlier in the thread or maybe the 2015 thread it is stated that the Avengers are moving over to Express with the coach and a few might stay. That doesn't leave a lot of openings for kids going to try out for the A team or team 1. Now, that is not to say other clubs are not keeping most of their team in tact as well. But the bottom line is, clubs need to be upfront about how many positions are truly open because parents pay a lot of money and spend time at these try outs. It's heart breaking to find out you took your kid to a try out and he didn't make it because they already had all their attack, but needed defensive players. Your kid is crushed, you are out 100 bucks, and still need to attend other try outs and only hope that the club needs the position your kid plays. This is where parents lose trust in the clubs. Just be open and honest. I think many will say, we are completely open, but that's not really true. If a kid is a stand out, they will bump another, but if a team comes from one club to another, and follows a coach, chances are the core team is set and all the positions aren't available. I'm not saying that's a bad thing, as loyalty and chemistry of playing over the years together seems to be valuable, but for the new kids trying out, the clubs should state what each team is really looking for. So if this teams core isn't already picked and set that woukd be shocking since they are following the coach. If any different is said, and the team is 75% in tact on the new club, parents are likely to be angered and not try out for the club in the future. Being up front is important and the right thing to do and families do appreciate the honesty and transparency so they can make the best decisions on where to spend their time and money at try outs.

And now you've got it! That is exactly what happened with this coach last year and will happen again this year. Why have competition and try to be the best when you can keep friends and family and others who drank the koolaid and be Average-er

Teams are already set, no point in the tryouts. His kids don't need to show up. Same old story.
wrong, wrong and wrong again

Espress will have 2 teams and neither is set. tryouts are Wed. You have to be there to make one of the teams.
Well then at the end of this you tell us all how many of his current team even show up for tryouts (none, like last year) and if they don't all miraculously make the team.


This is what parents get upset over. Clubs, coaches etc should be upfront. Earlier in the thread or maybe the 2015 thread it is stated that the Avengers are moving over to Express with the coach and a few might stay. That doesn't leave a lot of openings for kids going to try out for the A team or team 1. Now, that is not to say other clubs are not keeping most of their team in tact as well. But the bottom line is, clubs need to be upfront about how many positions are truly open because parents pay a lot of money and spend time at these try outs. It's heart breaking to find out you took your kid to a try out and he didn't make it because they already had all their attack, but needed defensive players. Your kid is crushed, you are out 100 bucks, and still need to attend other try outs and only hope that the club needs the position your kid plays. This is where parents lose trust in the clubs. Just be open and honest. I think many will say, we are completely open, but that's not really true. If a kid is a stand out, they will bump another, but if a team comes from one club to another, and follows a coach, chances are the core team is set and all the positions aren't available. I'm not saying that's a bad thing, as loyalty and chemistry of playing over the years together seems to be valuable, but for the new kids trying out, the clubs should state what each team is really looking for. So if this teams core isn't already picked and set that woukd be shocking since they are following the coach. If any different is said, and the team is 75% in tact on the new club, parents are likely to be angered and not try out for the club in the future. Being up front is important and the right thing to do and families do appreciate the honesty and transparency so they can make the best decisions on where to spend their time and money at try outs.

And now you've got it! That is exactly what happened with this coach last year and will happen again this year. Why have competition and try to be the best when you can keep friends and family and others who drank the koolaid and be Average-er

Express 2024

Our top 2024 team will be coached by the Head Varsity Coach of Kellenberg HS Mike Schwalje who has over 20 years of coaching been named Coach of the Year 5X and has already won a Catholic League Championship under his first 3 years at Kellenberg. He will have an outstanding staff which will include former UNC Goalie, Steven Rastivo who will provide outstanding goalie instruction for our players.

Coach Mike Oreilly will be also coaching a team for us in this age group and with his excellent training regimen your son will be in a great spot to develop his lacrosse skills for years to come.

You know O'Reillly is committed. Kids started playing in Sept last year and went all fall and winter right into the spring/summer season. The fact that MC went out and got a big name HS school coach is to assure himself of having 2x teams for that grade assuming they have a decent turnout at tryouts. It's hard to see any varsity coach commit any time (fall/winter) with a youth team until his season is over, and by that time it's usually too late.

Agreed, Storm was not a very good travel team. They couldn't beat Express, who was awful, got crushed by RVC at Bash at the Beach and never came close to beating Igloo, Outlaws or Avengers.

So they were certainly below average, were there enough kids at tryouts to change that?

If they took the top 40 kids and they accepted it would be improved but who knows if they will accept.

I think that is the key- a lot of kids go to try outs, for practice, to try out to see if they stack up or surpass the talent- etc. When you find out your kid made a team, you really do not know who is on that team, unless you are part of an inner circle. You can have the best kids show up, but few actually sign on and that is frustrating, but it is what it is.

Yes, they want you to pay within a week. If you are trying out for clubs that are holding try outs near one another you have an advantage and can make a choice without feeling pressured.

except they are moving to a new organization AGAIN who is pretending there are spots available. At least this year they need to show up. Looks like Express is collecting more $ than 91 did for their fake tryouts last year.

That is true, not all kids are at the same level but with express you have a fair shot to make either of the teams. You did not have that last year with pack and avengers. That's why you got stuck with the Titans

Nope, didn't get stuck. So I am just hopeful you are right so my son doesn't get left out like it seems happened to other people. He is not a D1 player yet (he's only 9) but he deserves a fair assessment. I'm sure you agree.

Igloo is always very good. They have a great staff, probably one of the strongest staffs on the club circuit. Team Long Island is returning most of their staff which was good as well. The Outlaws have the same coaching staff for the one team and new staff coming in for B team whose strong as well. I have a friend who played for them and they are great teachers/coaches.

Try igloo, good team, coach is a hands on teacher. Tryouts are next week. 8 hours of lacrosse over 2 days. For only $100 bucks! Best bargain since tryouts used to be free.
A friend of my son that played on Igloo. The kid and family enjoyed but they felt they kept too large of a team. Playing time was cut down. We played them they were one of the better B teams out there.

But for Igloo they are the A team and get treated that way. And I don't think they carried a crazy number of kids.

Treated like an A team meaning nice bags. They struggled last year. Not a bash just a fact. They lost to TLI and you don't hear anybody say TLI has a great coach. Does TLI have better talent or coach? Do your homework on how teams progressed during the year. tli beat avengers and igloo, seems to be something cooking there.

All of the teams you mentioned beat each other. TLI has a 150 lb attackman and the best goalie in the age group. It's not the coaching.

From my knowledge Igloo will be cutting down the number of players as they hit 6th grade and older. The boys get stronger and can last longer in the heat of the summer. So I believe they are making the rosters smaller this year. So that playing time isn't a factor.

Outlaws had some strong kids, so did Igloo, not sure about Millon, think they had a mixed team last year. Heard TLI had some good kids as well.
A and B, you guys are ridiculous. These kids are 9 years old!!! Most of them are still learning and growing, YES we all know Taz and Wolfpack are great, but the smaller slower kids WILL catch up! Trust me!!!
Lets have these crazy conversations in 4-5 years. Get a hold of yourselves and stop bashing young kids and use this forum for what it is for. You Dads are the same guys SCREAMING on the sidelines at your kids like lunatics dreaming about scholarships...
And no this isn't coming from a Dad whose kid didn't make a Team, he played where he belonged last year, just someone who realizes these kids are 9.

LOL, it's not the coaching, line of the year. So, just take a bunch of talented kids, throw them out there with any coach and they will perform incredibly. The coaches play a HUGE role.

Igloo 2024 has GREAT coaching. They had smaller kids and less of them when I watched them beat TLI in a Championship at St. Paul's to end the year. Coach figured out how to neutralize TLIs offensive advantage, quickly turned the team around from the semi final and beat them in a tight game after being beaten in pool play. I think that demonstrates something. No intent to knock anyone, but it is absolutely clear that high level coaching is what we should all be looking for.

I've heard this from a lot of lacrosse parents around the Island. They teach "dirty" lacrosse and have no respect for anything.

Didn't they start an all out fight at one of the last tourneys of the season?

Interesting that you say that. My boy was at their tryout last year to test the waters, but we declined and are not with TLI. But at the open runs we met the parents, very nice people, and they have a very likable kid. I recall they carry around his birth certificate because of people like you. Kid is legit age, but some people accuse the parents of faking the cert. You can't win.

Oh and my advice is get him in an early SAT prep course, they have them for 8th graders now.

These boys are very lucky in 4 th grade to get a coach like Sean Keenan. He has coached at the highest HS level, developed and coached many HS All Americans No offense to Zummo, but the team will be in pretty good hands. Pretty sure Rob Pannell who played for Keenan since he was in 4 th grade turned out okay.

This post is a little overboard, and sounds like a sales pitch. Yes, Keenen was a Varsity coach and coached some of the best players that Suffolk has seen. But even with that he never won a county title. Most of these travel teams have established Varsity coaches and college coaches, on staff, this is nothing new.

Lol your kidding right. The guy didn't even play lax not that it matters but when comparing there is none. Also he coaches high school with Zummo again who do think runs the show there or knows more about lax. Now if your trying to say he has a better resume the Keenan your sadly mistaking actually pretty funny.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2024-4th Grade Fall 2015 Summer 2016 - 08/22/15 06:36 PM
Keenan's resume will stack against anyone at any level. If you have done any of his clinics you know the guy can coach and motivate kids . Legacy has a solid staff at most levels and they all translate it to the kids very well

the landscape of strong teams will change year to year with boys crossing programs. My motto at this age, id like him to play for an organized program where he plays and develops. winning is nice and good to strive for but not what I'm paying 3g for. For him to win and not play does him no good.

That has nothing to do with anything, that's like saying until he beats Keenan in an actual game of lax he would be a better coach. cmon please say something intelligent. This has nothing to do with which club they coach, your asking about a "coaches resume" and when u compare them to Keenan is better by a landslide, on paper alone and of course in real life experience on the field as well.

He's not coaching 2025. He'll be there a couple of times and then the other coach will take over. His daughter is on the team so he has an interest for now. Once she moves over to the Girls game, why would he stay? He coaches NCAA girls lacrosse, once his girl moves over, so will he. Great coach, but will put his energy elsewhere.

He's coaching a 2025 girls team too and a friend of mine from Rocky Point said his daughter is going to play girls lax next year. The writing on the wall tells me that he's not going to follow through with this team. He most likely put his name down as coach just so that all of the kids from 2025 orange don't go elsewhere due to the horrible experience they had last year. 2025 is going to be the red headed stepchild for the foreseeable future.

60 kids. Some real good talent. Lots of Manhasset kids, who were also at Express tryouts. Barrone ran the show. Should be a competitive age group this year. Have to assume the Pack play up all year again.

The majority of the kids I've seen at tryouts - Igloo, Lagacy, Express did not have much talent. Maybe a dozen good kid & those are the ones that should be playing club at this age but what is up with kids trying out for club teams in 4th grade who can't catch & throw? Why is wrong with their parents putting them in club? Put them in clinics for a year THEN maybe tryout. And if they don't like going to the clinics they should not be playing club lacrosse. So messed up!

100% correct. He plays 12 kids 90% of the time on both of his other teams. But his daughter can't play both. Girls lax is more travel than boys. She'll have to pick one and I heard its next summer. This thing with JS coaching that team is a complete bait and switch. I feel bad for anyone that falls for it.

It was both of there last games. Championship game it was 6 to 5, very good game, could have gone either way. There is no gap in a one goal game could have gone either way.

Sad.

I was not there but heard was well run and alot of different helmets -


You have to think 12-15 returning kids are locks to come back leaving only about 10 open spots to upgrade. It was well run tryout and there were tons of different helmets. A few of the kids even tried out with long poles.

You guys are speaking as if Rooney wouldn't be a draw by himself. People would be silly to doubt how good he is. And if you only get one year, you have to take it, the next year is always a crap shoot anyway.

Taz and Wolfpack have played 5 or 6 times and only 1 game was close, but that game was the last one between the two teams, so the gap is closing

the gap is far from closing. The game before the one you are speaking of was 14-0 WP. Any team could beat any team on any given day. You need to look at statistics and statistically speaking, wins vs losses, WP has won 100% of the time. WP is 8/9 -0 over the past 2 years.

With all due respect, he's the equivalent of most coaches on other teams. He's definite not the draw. No one would be excited to get on that team if he were coaching. Don't misunderstand me, he a quality coach and very qualified, but what A team coach isn't? JS is listed as a coach now on 4 different teams, plus PAL, plus Lizards, plus Stony Brook. How much time is he going to honestly spend with 3rd graders? And how many of them will his screaming make cry? Buyer beware on this one people!

I decided to take my son to a few different tryouts to see what was out there. I must admit all the clubs tryouts we attended were well run, a positive experience for my son and at worst an expensive 2 night clinic each time. As a parent, I stood back about 20 yards from the fence and watched the children and the parents. My one observation, about 1/3 of all the parents gave the boys a positive word or two when they came off the field, a smile, hug, high five or fist bump. Good luck to all the boys and parents as they make their club selections. We are going Legacy, it made sense to us.

I went to a tryout last night at suny farmingdale and at the end. The coach took all the 9 year olds from last year and played against all the new kids. Old team 10. New kids zero. What a waste of 20 mins for the new kids. Then the coach basically admitted team is picked but the B team will be great

He's a JS protege. He collects the best hold backs on the grede level then yells and screams at them till they're too scared to make a mistake. The parents then tell everyone that they are better than all but two of the 2023 A teams, but get crushed by most of them. Be glad. That club's second teams are generally excellent without all of the coach's egos and temper getting in the way

the idea is to see how much fight the new kids have in them. Do they get discouraged or do they keep trying to make something happen in a bad situation. Might not be best for 9 year olds, but as they get older, expect to see that kid of thing if your son wants to get on the elite teams in any organization.

i agree with that comment above, however, in this situation, not the best way for any kid of any ability to shine, in a 15 -20 minute scrimmage when the ball is 100% in the other end and you have a group of kids playing an established proven winning team. you could take the best attack man from any team and if the ball is never in that end, he has zero opportunity . dont misunderstand me, each and every kid was given ample opportunity to show their stuff throughout the tryout process, which was very very well run. Coaches did a phenomenal job!!!!

Could not agree more - we only did one (igloo) but the kids were all super nice and the clinic/tryout was great. I am sure my kid is bubble, but because of the nice tryout, he really wants it. I played college lax, and was shocked at how good some 4th graders are. Lacrosse has come a long way. Year round sport now , hope these little guys can sustain. Saw one Dad berate his son pretty good at the snack break...was tough to see.

Enjoy the ride, it goes quick!

in all fairness, there were more than a few kids at the tryouts as good as the A players that will not make that A team, but then again, there were a few existing players that were pretty awesome. these kids really move the ball well, and know how to move when they dont have the ball. I guess that is why they win so much

Why is this club name mentioned on other BOTC threads without editing? Is it an issue with this 2024 age group for that club? I noticed you quickly edited the name of the team, not even the club name.

If you are in Nassau - I would consider True Blue (don't have a son on the team but familiar with the program)...decent price and with a good coach, thought commitment and competitiveness of the team may not be as much as some of the other clubs over the course of a year...not sure about Bluefish given a 1st year club and concerns over quality/style of their coaching staff

Express, Icon, Bluefish, Sharks, true Blue. They are all Nassau. For Icon & Bluefish it'll be their first year for this grade. I think the only club that will want to prac full year in Nassau in this age bracket is Express. They have tryouts tonight at Mitchell. It's 4th grade, all of these teams will be fine. It depends on the level of intensity you are looking for.

You are a bunch of sorry [lacrosse] old men whose glory days are over and trying to live through your kids. The fact that you go back and forth with stupid [lacrosse] comments over 9 year old boys is just so pathetic. What happened to just playing for the love of the game? Why are you all concerned about being the best? Are you all really pondering how to get your child a D1 scholarship? Newsflash.... the probability of that happening is extremely low and think about the sacrifice of having your child hate you because all you do is jam it down their throat. Ask yourself this....do you ever ask your child if they had fun? Or do you tell them that you LOVE to just to watch them play? I bet the answer to these questions are NO.

This board is the furthest thing from wholesome. To allow people to bash coaches, parents, programs, then censor when some posts about a specific program seems a bit odd. There is some valuable information on this forum in between the Jerry Springer episodes which are permitted and in some instances encouraged. Whatever the issue there is between the folks that run this forum and the organization in question is their issue, but please stop with the "wholesome" comments. It doesnt pass the sniff test....

First time ever posting here-you guys are funny-you only think about the age of the kids as it refers to sports. What about a child with learning disabilities. Maybe a child that had to repeat a year due to developmental delays-don't think that happens? Not every child who is slightly older is in the grade due to parental influence based on sports advantage. keep that in mind when bashing a child/parent because their child is 1/2 year or 10 months older. In reality, especially for boys, being the oldest in the grade is a not such a bad thing for maturity, socialization, and can result in better academics, which is really what will help most get into better schools and function better later on in the "real world". Reality is, that few will get scholarships for sports. We are talking about 4th graders here. It ain't all about sports.

I have much empathy for the child that struggles. I held one son back because he only made the cut off by days and he is still immature to compared to his peers on grade level, never mind age wise. That said, I never expected that he would be given preferential treatment because I held him back when it came to sports. When he played hockey he played his age, but when he played town soccer he played grade. If he tried out for travel soccer, he'd play age again. Kids like my son are not the worry, but rather the exception to holdbacks. He is not a dominant force, but if he was, I would never expect that he be given an advantage because he might be bigger or stronger than his younger grade peers. The issue is, there had to be some rules set because if you excuse kids with late start to school, then you need to excuse those that hold back for athletic reason later. It becomes a free for all and is quite unregulated. I'm all for developmental programs to be grade based, but once you enter the competitive field of travel lax or any sport- there should be a level playing field at the start, minus genes. The bigger stronger kid with such DNA is who he is, but he can't be called out as he is a proper age as all the kids.

There is an official cutoff date. It's 9/1. It's as arbitrary as the dates picked for soccer or hockey. Vast majority of holdbacks would meet the age cutoff anyway. Now for all you fall birthdays playing on grade you're technically playing up by lax standards.

You need grade based as recruiting kicks in around 8th grade. Should go age based until then.

Hockey is the way to do it. Period. Jan 1 2020 you play for the YEAR 2020. 12/31/2019 you play for the YEAR 2019. Clean and simple.

For those that left back their preschool kids for other reasons then sports , it makes it easy. In hockey, when asked what year you are, you say your birth year. Not your grade level. Easy.

If you think a 2 minute snack time berate by a Dad to his son was tough to see, the pack may not be for you as a parent. The way JA screams and degrades kids is borderline child abuse. Don't take my word for it, watch the games. Coaches should be role models for these kids and JA is far from it.

Untrue. The boys love this guy. Berate? Child abuse? You are a fool who obviously has a son that is not ready to play at a high level. Do us all a favor and go home and bake cookies with your boy. That sounds like more your level weak daddy. So pathetic and soft. Don't worry little Johnny will get a participation trophy in the end and no one will raise their voices so you don't get upset. Embarrassing
Are we talking about 4th grade kids and lacrosse here. People you need a reality check. Odds are your kid wont be playing the game of lacrosse because he loves it. He will be playing because you do. At this age it should be about retention of players. Make them fall in love with the game so when there are pitfalls they wont want to stop playing but persevere. There will be so many changes in your kids from now and until they play in High school you would only wish you had this time back. They are little kids let them be little and enjoy the game for what it is, A GAME. Not the big money making monster it has become. Sports are an avenue for growth in an individual in so many great ways but the way parents are making it out to be its become a nightmare. They are creating the farthest thing from a team atmosphere. Its a shame whats going on with the parents, not the kids.

Thank you for the reality check, and this is not sarcastic. I think many of us are on BOTC because our kid loves lacrosse and we want the best for our child but with tryout results coming out, it is very easy to succumb to the madness.

Because they are winning i guess. Who knows if his days are numbered. Time will tell with JA as things will catch up and what goes around comes around. What is amazing to me is the parents on that team allow their kids to be treated the way they do because of fear of being cut and thats a fact.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2024-4th Grade Fall 2015 Summer 2016 - 08/27/15 06:56 PM
Pack rosters announced...I wonder if anyone new was added. It's only 20 kids so assuming the same team
Is lacrosse the be all and end all for you and your kids? Its time to evaluate what your doing to your kids. I understand teaching them ownership and responsibility and all the higher up moral fibers of ethics are important and sports are a great avenue for this. We all have different perceptions of it but right from wrong and the basic building blocks for child development don't start with lacrosse. If someone is treating your child poorly and you allow for this because you want your kid to play on a particular team really speaks to what our society has become. I do understand that there are those with their own agenda and will spread lies and rumors about individuals to tarnish that persons reputation but the way parents are treating 4th grade lacrosse seems crazy. If your kids good he will get noticed and picked up down the road. Teach your child to be fundamentally sound at all the basics, Lefty righty catching throwing shooting and groundballs. Enjoy their successes and failures because you will never have these moments back. Good luck and I know its hard to look past the proverbial carrot on a stick before your face of being on the best team. They are just kids.

Easy there Marv Marinovich. These kids don't have a choice, of course they are going to pretend to like JA. How would it go if they gave him lip? The yelling would be less? It's well known that kids on the pack live in fear. Frequent porti potti trips before games is not a coincidence. It makes me laugh that you think successful teams have to be handled only like the pack. Plenty of good teams out there win, learn/love the game and most importantly; the kids have fun. Based on your comments, I'm betting your kid hates you and you don't even know it yet.

could this be the attempts to sway decisions. There were 18 out of 20 children that returned to tryout for this "horrendous" coach as you say. Even if you take the 3 - 4 wacky parents out of the mix and the coaches kids, that still leaves you with 10 sane parents that would not stand for this so called abuse. I think this is a pathetic attempt to bash a coach that is completely committed, practiced 4x's more than the guaranteed practices, and wasn't more concerned with the almighty dollar. It takes a certain type insecure weasel to spue lies like this. The kind that might be concerned about the loss of good players on a particular team. Or the kind that may have had a child that couldn't keep up. Either way it might be time to take a step back and consider wether it is really worth it to bash a guy completely undeserving.

The best kids who came over will all want to go to the A team, right?

Seems crazy to me that the kids/families would go from B team to B team. You would move to get an A team experience. It is not going to be very good lax at the bottom of this roster.

Very few great B teams unfortunately, if your looking for that, gotta go A!

And remember that kids get better playing with the best/better kids. Not necessary to play up, but you have to have challenges. So have your kid play at or above his level whenever you can.

Seems nuts to me, if your kid is an A player, he doesn't get equally skilled team mates. That could be very frustrating. If he is a B player he will only keep up at the bottom of the roster. Good luck! I guess crazier things have worked before.

What do you mean? My son tried out for Express, Legacy and Outlaws. Simply stating the Outlaws tryouts looked like some talented kids at the 2024 group not stiring up anything. Why so defensive? Something I should know about the Outlaws?

Avengers were a B team last year. Express was a C+. If they are making two balanced teams don't see how either improves much.

Has to be a parent, this is just not logical for a coach to say. Even teams would make this just expensive PAL. Maybe each kid gets a trophy too along with the bill!

For you all new to express (avenger parents pay close attention), your team will add players, there will be many guest appearances, your coaches will come and go. With two teams, channy has plenty of flexibility to move pieces around as he wants. This is all a dress rehearsal to get an A team together by end of the summer. Expect movement between teams and new faces along the way. Also, don't expect schwalie there very often, especially in the spring/summer.

It's all good with Express. Channy got his way with 2x B teams. He went from 1x awful 2024 team last year to 2x decent teams this year and was able to double his cash for the program. It's a Win Win for Channy.

As for the teams we will see how they end up but right now but they are both B teams. Sure one might be B1 but at the end of the day neither will be able to close the gap between Pack and Taz. We also know Igloo and Outlaws upgraded too.

agree, grown men? come on guys...maybe some postive stuff about programs and coaches but to criticize 4th grade teams? My first year in travel, I wanted to get the kid involved because he loves playing and is decent. You guys on here add stress to the experience, and why ?

People it's travel lacrosse. Families make decisions that best suit their kids & families. Coaches/directors make decisions to hopfully develop the kids & programs. A kid can get better between now and spring and changes can happen. Welcome to the real world! If you don't like it, go back to PAL or work harder!

I did not right the first post, but believe me he knows what he his talking about , if Fat Albert walked up to MC and said I am a middie and wrote him a check he will have a uniform that day. Every practice you will see a new helmet. He will sit your kid the whole tournament and sleep like a baby. He only cares about a handful of kids the top dogs. And you are not a top kid and don't do is extra clinics you will move down the ladder.

Once he stepped down, his kids went in different directions and were no longer "his kids". As a coach, when playing for him, he takes care of his players. And I believe that if he were asked for help by anyone of his former kids, he would still do what he could. He is not for all, but he has worked with tons of kids over the years and has made a difference.

I believe igloo has last tryout tonight for those that were not around the days of tryouts. I assume they will have upgraded like everyone else. In case people are new to this .... people change every year from every team. Some teams get better. Some get worse. Some continue treading water.
Hopefully every kid finds a place to play and HAS FUN.

Few Taz players made the WP team and opted to go. I'm sure it wasn't an easy decision but if my son was given the opportunity I would have done the same. Don't get me wrong Taz is a great team with a talented bunch of boys but its comparing apples to oranges.

Skills and player development are instrumentally better when playing with better players. Fact. For this grade I want someone who has a enthusiasm for the game , and passes it on to his group. This will get them better! I want my son to be pumped to go to practice. Not feel like he has to go because of a grumpy coach.
They are children. 9 and 10 year olds. Get better , and have fun doing so. Fun is what this is all about right?

These teams are all so different from 1 year to the next. If anyone believes that the same group stays together, talented or not, all the way through from 4th grade, they live in a cave. This is 4th grade!!! Kids move in and out of town..new talented kids show up and some quit. People need to get a grip when they refer to a previous year as being bad. Guess what...if that's truly the case, I am sure that the club will not just sign up the same players all over again...once again, it's 4th grade.

Saw Avengers play 2x in season. Those kids did develop A LOT. Coach must be decent. Heard good things about him.

Why so negative all the time??? They even played up in Hershey. The score board was tough on some games but they really played well in most of the games. Their coach cares more about developing then winning. He cares more that the child shoots left when he's suppose to (he may miss), but better than switching hands and getting the goal with his right. These kids will be so much better off! Stop with the shooting down of 9 year olds. I feel bad for your son.

This is what parents on Teams say when they don't win. Everyone wants to win, especially the boys! That is why they play the games, and that is why they keep score.

And that is the response of a parent who never made it in sports and who's child unfortunately won't make it either. A win in 3rd/4th grade is not a win in HS or college. The true winners will be developed properly and will succeed in the end. Good luck to little Johnny who can't shoot lefty in 2 years, but daddy gets to cheer & boast about his 9 year old who wins a game in 4th grade. LOOSER!

Being completely honest here. The coach is a hot head that goes off on the kids for tbe littlest mistakes. I would do your research before you spend tbe money on them.zh

Of course he can shoot lefty, he's left handed! Winning is something that can and is learned through a lifetime of - Winning. Suddenly winners aren't developing? Tell that to the elite teams, somehow they manage to win and develop too. Imagine that, LOSER (and learn to spell).

He may be a screamer, which in all fairness is pretty rampant in youth boys lacrosse but he doesn't curse and it's not borderline child abuse (i know that sounds like a really low bar but unfortunately there are coaches that do this). He is dedicated to his team and not an absentee money grab figure head. Your son will have regular practices at consistent locations, there will not be a ridiculous number of players on the team, he will enter the team in more tournaments if the players are interested to do so, he will not lie to you, and if your son is motivated and a hard worker, he can be supportive and your child can learn a lot. Probably better off on a team like sharks than a b team in a larger organization and definitely better than a c team anywhere.

Futures is a good town team but The Rock is not Futures. The Rock is kids from Rockville Centre & has kids that also do club teams. Rockville Centre has 3 very solid PAL teams. A lot of good players will come out of Rockville Centre. Some are on Futures and some are not.

They are at a level of a decent town team and usually that is what most of the team is. 2024 coach has very good credentials and believe team is made up of his northport kids .

Exactly. Besides Pack and Taz every other club team is at about the level of a good town team. The difference being you will pay $2K to play for the club team and couple of hundred dollars to play for the town team.
With so many clubs vying for players and a new one popping up almost every week the clubs are not what they used to be.
15 years ago the handful of club teams were elite teams with only the best players and everyone else played for town teams.
Now there are so many clubs that the vast majority are no better than the good town teams.
parents today think it is a status symbol to be on a club team so they keep shelling out whatever the cost to say their kid plays for a club. It's sad. we're making people rich who figured out a way to market a dream to naïve parents.

Wow, someone is making some cash off your town team. Everything should and can be done for half of that cost including indoor training, tourney fees, uniforms, etc.

I'm not sure I agree with that. I think very few town teams have the same level of coaching, practices and tournaments. I also think you're stretching when you say the clubs above are same level as a good town team. Did any of them lose to a town team last year? I doubt it.

I think the majority of parents on here just want to keep the stick in the kids hand and not fall behind the 8ball so to speak. While the Pack and Taz are both top tier teams, I believe kids can get something out of playing and being coached throughout the year. This is actually our first year playing travel, so thats at least what I expect. Is it a crazy amount of money ? Yes, but Im hoping for all the years activities it will be well spent. As said before, kids and coaches change programs left and right, so winning programs will change from year to year. This is a crazy cycle this travel lax has brought us all into, but hopefully we can build a strong healthy lax foundation for our boys. What we can do as parents is enforce good sportsmanship and morals along the way. That means not being too critical of 9 year old boys, and letting them still have fun at this stage. Are you all willing to give that to them at least ? I know I am.

A lot of valid points about town lax vs. club lax. Many clubs are probably watered down a bit since 15 years ago. The cost is expensive but is it worth it? The added drills, practices and tourneys should help a player develop a lot quicker. They will also build up a camaraderie with teammates. The downside of not joining a club is that I think town coaches will favor club kids more simply because they'll think they're more dedicated to the game and that the town kid will leave the sport in a year or so anyway.

I never said that. I merely said that they are the elite 2024 teams at this time. I have been around this sport for a long time. Played in HS but not college and both my boys played for good D2 programs but were not superstars. Many of those current "elite" players on Pack and Taz wont even start on their varsity team because they will be passed by other boys who haven't even picked up a stick yet or they will get burned out and just stop playing. Everything changes between 12 and 15 years old when they hit puberty. Don't burn your kids out. Let them be kids and have fun. I just hate what I see this sport becoming. It is going the way of baseball and soccer as a big money youth sport with everyone buying into the hype and chasing a pipedream.

Yes..yes. We ALL get it. It's the Pack, Taz then the MLL and D1 college programs. What would the rest of us ever do without the pack/taz parents to impart their wisdom upon us.


I never said that. I merely said that they are the elite 2024 teams at this time. I have been around this sport for a long time. Played in HS but not college and both my boys played for good D2 programs but were not superstars. Many of those current "elite" players on Pack and Taz wont even start on their varsity team because they will be passed by other boys who haven't even picked up a stick yet or they will get burned out and just stop playing. Everything changes between 12 and 15 years old when they hit puberty. Don't burn your kids out. Let them be kids and have fun. I just hate what I see this sport becoming. It is going the way of baseball and soccer as a big money youth sport with everyone buying into the hype and chasing a pipedream.


Given the under achievement of you and your boys I'm not sure you should be giving the rest of us advice. Also, do you have a kid in this age group or are you just trolling around?

Don't listen to this fool. Besides pack and taz they are with everyone else. Avengers, express, igloo, TLI


Exactly. Besides Pack and Taz every other club team is at about the level of a good town team. The difference being you will pay $2K to play for the club team and couple of hundred dollars to play for the town team.
With so many clubs vying for players and a new one popping up almost every week the clubs are not what they used to be.
15 years ago the handful of club teams were elite teams with only the best players and everyone else played for town teams.

It cracks me up to see the word "elite" being used to describe 3rd grade lacrosse...


3rd grade or 4th grade it still is funny to call them elite.
They may be the best teams for their age in the area currently but that does not make them elite. and no 3rd or 4th grade player is elite. Come back and see what you have in 10 years.

Under achievement? LOL....I guess you were an all-American stud weren't you? LOL I feel sorry for your son, he will never live up to your expectations.

I never thought of lacrosse as a means to an end for my boys but it did help them get into some good academic schools and they are both doing very well for themselves now.
And no, I do not have a son in the age group but I do have a nephew in the age group and I am still involved with the sport.

Taz / Pack ...... Pack / Taz. Let's see how many of those kids are still playing in 10 years and enjoying it. We played them once, and the amount of yelling directed at 9 year olds was insane. I know of kids on teams that can make them (easily) but choose not to go the route at win at all costs. Enjoy.

Its not the WP parents my friend. Its the same #$%@ stirrer from day one that pretends to be part of the team. WP parents are not the big mouths, people who tried to be part of the team and didn't get the nod are the big mouths. Dad or in my opinion Mom is the stirrer that has everyone fooled

Should be pretty even. The crazies on this site will say they are both B teams because they are not the WP or Taz. It's safe to say both teams will be better then last years Express team.

There are many kids on LI who can make Pac and Taz. I know of a few on our town team alone. The smart parents will allow there child to experience and commit to other sports at this age. Do you know how many times I have seen Taz and Pac helmets playing for other club teams??Can anyone say burn-out.
Let them be able to love the sport when they are 18.

You are forgetting a bunch of good players also ended up staying with the B team. Kids that would have made the A team but decided to stay with the coach.

To say Express is going form awful last year to an A team this year because of a handful of players moved over is a bit of a stretch. We will find out this fall how good both teams are.

hate to break this to you guy but 100% of the boys on Wolfpack play at least one but most play 2-3 additional sports including football, basketball, wrestling, ice hockey and soccer. The coach is a huge advocate of it and preaches the importance of it constantly. Most of them play these other sports together as well. Look, committing at this level is certainly not for everyone. Some feel it is a huge sacrifice. You are certainly entitled to your opinions. I do however know 20 sets of parents that feel differently and 20 boys that love every minute of it. Who are you to judge.

I can not believe that anyone in their right mind would choose the B Team over the A! Even if it doesn't work out, what do you have to lose? But I suppose it is possible and I wish I could understand the logic. Is the suggestion that the A Team coach is not good? Otherwise, don't kids in a Team game improve the most with better players around them? Why hold your son back?

Be realistic with yourself, if your kid is not on the top 2 middie lines, one of the top 4/5 attack or defense but made the A team anyway he is better off at this age playing the B team and starting in all his games and playing more in tournaments against other players gaining confidence and IQ of the game. This will make him a better player and give him a better shot next year of moving up and being an asset to the team. It may take a couple of years . To many people want to say there kid is on an A team but really aren't contributing or getting enough playing time because there is a big gap between him and the top tier kids. Just my opinion and experience.

Perhaps they had a great experience with the coaches and teammates and the parents realize that being on an "A" team in 4th grade doesn't mean anything in the long road.

If he "would've" made the A team, he should be playing on the A team. Makes no sense to hold a kid back if he "would've" made th better team in my opinion. I guess getting a free pass was a good thing?

B...A...come on, based on what ? a couple of drills in 2 days of crammed try outs ? Come on guys, lighten up. If the Dad wants to put his kid on the "B" team because he likes the way the coach coaches, so be it. I applaud the Dad to follow his instincts to do whats best and more comfortable for his son, while still enjoying to play the game. There are a few guys on here that obviously are living through their sons lives. Any grown adult man who criticizes other 9 year old kids to get a laugh is a pure loser inside and out. Come on guys, while this is a competitive sport at all levels, these are 9 year old kids. Lets show them how to act like a good sportsman at this stage. I hope we are on the same page with this. These guys will have plenty of time for the cut throat Lax world

It is clearly fun to get better and you do that by playing with and against better players and also by WINNING! Winning rewards and reinforces good habits and hard work. Don't tell your sons to settle! Do them that favor. You will regret it if you don't.

My son plays for three different sports now. Right now, he loves playing them all. As much as I enjoy watching him play, I won't push him so hard that he starts to hate going.
If you choose to live vicariously through your son, don't worry. If YOUR dream doesn't work out for HIM, he can always work for my son someday!

No settling for less than his own expectations and no participation trophies for my son.

Really? Is that what you took from it? Sad
I never said that my son WOULDN'T be successful at lacrosse. If he is, great! I encourage him and my other kids to try their best at everything they do. Encourage but not as if his success in life depends on lacrosse. What I do know is that he is a leader and an A+ student and will be successful at whatever he puts his mind to but you wouldn't know that because you're too busy yelling at you kid. Try not to scream at him too much from the sideline. It's embarrassing him.
Based on what you wrote, you want your kid to pursue YOUR dream. Too bad he will never reach your goals. How many professional athletes have come from your high school's HISTORY? 3? 6? 10? none? How many Craig Biggios or Jumbo Elliotts did you know? Like I stated, he can come work for my son after he done crushing your dreams.

You are making too much sense. NO room for that in this forum!! Some of these parents will learn the hard way and ruin it for their kids. Remember when we were young? Our passion for certain sports changed as we grew up.
My son plays for three different sports now. Right now, he loves playing them all. As much as I enjoy watching him play, I won't push him so hard that he starts to hate going.
If you choose to live vicariously through your son, don't worry. If YOUR dream doesn't work out for HIM, he can always work for my son someday!


Kids have to pursue their dreams and work for them. The answer is in facing challenges and achieving success. We call these types winners. No settling for less than his own expectations and no participation trophies for my son. And one thing I'm sure of is he won't be working for your son because what you describe is the kind of boy who follows, mine leads.


Really? Is that what you took from it? Sad
I never said that my son WOULDN'T be successful at lacrosse. If he is, great! I encourage him and my other kids to try their best at everything they do. Encourage but not as if his success in life depends on lacrosse. What I do know is that he is a leader and an A+ student and will be successful at whatever he puts his mind to but you wouldn't know that because you're too busy yelling at you kid. Try not to scream at him too much from the sideline. It's embarrassing him.
Based on what you wrote, you want your kid to pursue YOUR dream. Too bad he will never reach your goals. How many professional athletes have come from your high school's HISTORY? 3? 6? 10? none? How many Craig Biggios or Jumbo Elliotts did you know? Like I stated, he can come work for my son after he done crushing your dreams. [/quote]

Too funny how aggressive you are here but you advocate for such a passive approach, just remember that being a winner is a learned trait. [/quote]

Passive approach? No. Realistic approach? Yes. Winner? What would you know about winning? Hopefully, you will learn from this and lower your kid's lacrosse expectations. You can thank me the next time I pull up to your Drive-Thru window.

Not judging. Just an observation.It must be quite difficult, with the WP's extreme practice schedule, the other sports, and oh ya, school... I do agree that there is something to be said about commitment.I would also never judge a parent for wanting there children to improve, learn and have fun with any sport.Again,Just observing that besides the WP's schedule of games and practices I do see there helmets playing for other teams.To me, that seems to be a bit to much for 8 and 9yr olds.

Try again Mrs/MR Everybody gets a trophy, I don't set any expectations other than asking for his best efforts. And shame on us, we understand that life is competition and as his parents enjoy his SUCCESS (and the occasional failure). Most importantly he enjoys WINNING and best of all he loves his A Team and warm hugs

You're suffering from CSW (Charlie Sheen Winning). It explains a lot. Seek help. I pray your son doesn't from the same affliction when he gets older.

So what team is your son on buddy? We know he is not on WP or Taz so who is he doing all this winning with? Looking forward to your response, which I doubt we will get.

Winning is a contagious disease. What team is not even a point of discussion but it is clearly an A team.

Ultimately what I think is guided by the greats including Coach John Wooden who authored a lecture and a book about the Pyramid of Success. The Pyramid of Success consists of philosophical building blocks for winning at basketball and at life. At the top of the Pyramid of Success was "Competitive Greatness" which Wooden defined as "Perform at your best when your best is required. Your best is required each day."

You do realize that Wooden's book was aimed at adults, not 9 year old children, right?

You remind me of a movie I saw once..."The Great Santini".

Let me get this straight. You are not a WP or Taz dad but your 2024 is clearly on an A team. So we know it's not Express because you didn't get asked to be part of the Avengers last year after the Titans disbanded. Outlaws, TLI Empire, E3 , etc are all B teams so you can't be there. Got it, your that annoying Igloo dad that paid 3 grand last year and believed you were part of an A team. Oh well, think again. They are still a B team even with a few of their adds this year. Not to hard to figure you out.

The real thing I want to ask, Lord, is that all these boys make the first team in that great game of life. If they make mistakes, Lord, blow the whistle because you’re the great referee. Call time out and bring them to center court for another jump ball. Don’t let them go out of bounds, Lord. If they bust a play, make ’em run wind-sprints and figure eights but stay with ’em, Lord. Coach ’em all the way to the championship of life. A-men.” “A-men,” the team echoed in relief.”
― Pat Conroy, The Great Santini

Sad thing is that this age group is a weak one in general. Similar to 2022. Top teams are behind Maryland teams already and that gap will only grow.

So you, actually your kid went from the Titans (C Team) to Igloo (B- team) and all of a sudden you are with the A team. Sorry to burst your bubble but you are still B. Better teach your kid if he wants to be a "winner" he needs to make to Pack, or even the Taz because Igloo is as you would say....Average. Your poor must hate you.

Is Igloo avoiding fall ball again this year? For 3 grand you think they wound throw you a fall tourney.

A team or no team you said. So thousands of kids ,who love the sport, who at 9 aren't A caliber yet, shouldn't play. They should play x box. You better hope one day, someone a little quicker or a little better dosent come along and replace your A team son. Sometimes the best 9 year olds are only average 14 year olds. A statement like that makes you sound so ignorant.

I have 3 boys that play travel. From 2019 to 2024. Biggest idiot comments consistently right here. It's unreal. Think that maybe he parents here have 2024 kids as their oldest. You all do realize at 12 or 13 puberty hits and everything changes. It's insane the change in ability in those years. And size. And aggression.
My boys have a choice every year - play or don't play. I don't care. Lacrosse happens to be their passion, so they play.
Enjoy these younger years while you can. Idiotic comments on 2024 are almost comical.
First and last post here.

Not discussing caliber or level of play, just don't ever want my boy on the second team in any organization. If my son gets beat then we go find another organization. Always play A, it is just better

Igloo parent here, fortunately we have one team that is going to play at a high level and will get all of the organizations attention makes it an excellent value.

You sound like a robot. Do you recite winston churchill quotes to your son before dinner. The point is , my son is a great student and very good in sports. Yet he is both of those things, with normal parents. He is a kid, who enjoys being a kid. I'd rather my kid lose a 9 year old lacrosse game and be a kid having fun, then win being a cyborg.

To bad Igloo doesn't do any fall tourneys. Would love to witness this jokers act from the sideline. I'm sure he would be easy to spot.

Igoo doesn't do fa tourneys? Why? It's excellent practice & gets the boys excited. It doesn't reflect the whole team because most Normal people will realize it's the fall and a lot of kids will be missing due to other commitments but it is excellent practice. So any quoting team wins is ridicilious.

Sure, that's it, a beast, right, on the B team. But did the Team win? I suspect they did not or you would have told us the score, but that's ok, they all got a ribbon.

No fall tourney is lame. It's not like they are a new team like last year. They have to be one of the only big clubs not playing this fall.

Amen. I have an older athlete as well and so much changes. Some, not all, top athletes stay at the top while many, many others peak later for many reasons-puberty, maturity, specialization, interest level, etc.

Fine with me. More than happy to kick in extra for more tourneys. I might end up paying 3k but for 10 tourneys vs the 5 igloo does in the summer.

Food for thought from Trevor Tierney

Assist Co - 2015 NCAA Champion Denver Pioneers



THE "BEST TEAM" MAY NOT BE WHAT IS BEST FOR OUR KIDS

“And why do we fall, Bruce? So we can learn to pick ourselves up.” - Batman Begins

Don’t get me wrong here. I love all of the players, parents and families that I get to work with in sports. I would not want to be doing anything else with my life! But lately, I have been bewildered by a phenomena that seems to be growing in youth athletics. There is a constant search amongst parents and players to be on the “best team” that wins the most games and tournaments. It is no longer enough for our children to play on a local youth or high school team and enjoy the experience of playing sports. Furthermore, it is no longer even enough for our children to play on a good club travel team that plays well together, is competitive with other great teams from around the country and has top-notch coaching. Rather, there is a “grass is greener” mentality amongst parents and young athletes who are on the constant lookout for the absolute greatest team to be a part of.

There are a lot of factors driving all of this. It is partly due to the parent’s misconception that the better their child’s team, the better their chances for recruitment and success down the road (by the way, college coaches do not even know the scores of the high school games that they are scouting—they only notice who is 6’4”, 225 and runs like a gazelle in the Serengeti). I believe that this mentality runs deeper than that though and we have simply lost touch of what sports are all about. You know when you watch the people on a reality show like Honey Boo Boo or Swamp People and you say, “man…those people are nuts!”? Well, I hate to tell you, that is all of us in sports right now! We are those crazy people. And for the past few years, this perception of making sure our children win all the time and at all costs has become utterly mind-boggling. Every single game in sports, one team wins and one team loses. That’s just the way it works. It is completely narcissistic for us to think that we ourselves (or our child) should never lose. What fun would sports be if we knew that we were going to win every time anyway?

Every great athlete and coach that I know has had their fair share of ups and downs. Even though my claim to lacrosse fame is that I won two NCAA National Championships, a MLL Championship and a FIL World Championship with Team USA, I also got my butt kicked a whole lot along the way! My youth teams were disgraceful, my high school team had some serious rough patches, I can’t even count how many goals Syracuse scored on me at Princeton over the years and I was on the only USA team that lost in the World Championships since 1978 for goodness sake! Even Michael Jordan (who I apologize for even mentioning in the same paragraph as my athletic career) admitted in a commercial, “I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.” The point is, that no matter what an athlete does in their career, they will have some wins and they will have some losses. Trying to control that is not going to change anything. Furthermore, there is actually something about the pursuit of always winning that is detrimental to our children’s development as athletes and as people.

As I have pondered this mindset that we are witnessing in youth sports for the past few years, I knew something was wrong. I just didn’t know how to explain it, other than sounding like a grumpy old curmudgeon. The fact is though, there is scientific evidence that shows that we should actually want our children to lose! Again, as I have written time and again, I am not saying that athletes should not care about trying to win and just act like it does not matter. And I am certainly not an advocate for the “everyone gets a trophy” mentality. Our young athletes should care deeply about trying to win and be their best. And when they go into competition and want nothing more than to win that game, it will be absolutely fantastic for them when they lose! Before you think I have been hit in the head with too many lacrosse balls (which is completely factual), let me explain further.

In the past month, I have been fortunate enough to study under one of our country’s leading researchers on human resilience at Harvard, Dr. Shelly Carson. As soon as I sat in our first lecture, the lightbulb flashed on! I started to realize that when we want our child to play on the most dominant team, we are completely missing the boat on how sports build resilience for young men and women. This is not just me blabbing about it either. There is decades of research being compiled by people much smarter than me (surprising I know) that explains how we all develop resilience and how this leads to overall happiness, well-being and success. And isn’t that what we really want for our children?

I am starting to understand how sports are actually the perfect set up for resilience training as losses are very stressful and a challenging adversity for young athletes to face. From this perspective, you realize that no one is going to die, get seriously injured, get cancer, lose a family member, get dumped by their girlfriend (and if so, good riddance I say), lose their home, get thrown in jail, fail out of school, or face anything truly tragic from losing a game. And while I might be sounding trite here, the sad fact is that all of us will face one or several of these things at some point in our life. Nobody’s existence on this earth is perfect. We all encounter some serious adversity whether we like it or not. With that being the case, don’t we want our kids to learn how to deal with it in a skillful manner?

In the field of psychology, resiliency has been defined by Luthar (2000) as, “the ability to recover from or adjust easily to misfortune or change . . . a positive adaptation within the context of significant adversity,” (as cited in Carson lecture, 2014). So, not only do the skills of resiliency allow people to overcome and recover from tragic experiences in their lives, but resilient people also flourish, grow and experience tremendous well-being and success in their lives. And that is exactly what we want for our children. I will take that over any win, any tournament championship and any trophy. The best aspect of athletics, in my mind, is that it teaches us resiliency, the ability to endure, overcome and find greatness in our lives. As coaches and parents, all we have to do is be positive and supportive of our children no matter if they win or lose. We just have to be there for them as they learn to get back up and keep moving on with their heads held high. That is how our youth can learn to deal with life on life’s terms and develop as strong individuals. What a great gift that is to bring our children and I cannot think of a more powerful way to do it than through athletics!

There are a lot of ways in which resiliency can be taught through sports, which I will go into some more detail down the road. For right now, I will pass along that one of the most effective ways in handling a stressor is utilizing "problem-focused coping", which means taking an active approach towards finding a solution. With just this one psychological skill alone, we can shift our perspective in how we approach athletics. As I tell my players and parents on our Denver Elite lacrosse teams, instead of finding a better team to play on, find a way to make your team better. This is how you can truly learn to win something of lasting value through the sports.

Ranking young athletes?? Why and for whom?
After playing 14 seasons in the NBA and coaching three NBA teams, John Lucas now works with kids ranging from fourth grade to the pro level and runs camps throughout the United States. To him, ranking young kids makes no sense.
"If you're the best fourth-grader in the world, you know what that means?" Lucas said. "You get to go to the fifth grade. And guess what happens in the fifth or sixth grade. You may not grow.”
Enjoy the journey - don’t be in a hurry to get ahead of the natural process - young kids don’t need to be put on pedestals based on current talent. If they are good enough when they are high school, they will be found.

Wait a second, everybody knows the kids learn more in practice but the games are more fun. You think its good to do 5 fall tournaments? And how can you do that many and avoid getting beat up by the Pack or Taz... You guys are nuts, fall lacrosse is like pre season baseball.

10 tournaments for 4th graders? You're spending $3k so you can win as 9 year olds only to burn them out by 15. Crazy. You may say "my kid loves it" and they might. But if you offered them ice cream for dinner every night they'd be happy until one day they decide I'm done with ice cream. Good Luck

First of all, everything gets beyond twisted here. Express is playing in THREE fall tourneys, NOT FIVE. And a good amount of practices are setup. They will not be burnt out on their schedule. And yes, they probably will be beat by the PAC & Taz but they will play other teams as well. Practice and games combined will only make them get better and have fun. Which is what the game is about.

Igloo doesn't charge for extra games they setup at their fields, they pay the refs they hire, they line the fields, nothing else is asked of us financially. See your all missing the point. All you see is 3K, and that makes you blind to the fact that you will spend more with Legacy, 91, and Express. Once you do their winter indoor practices, and buy all their stuff, and oh yeah go to all the extra tournaments you will spend more then 4K... check your receipts. All in all Igloo is the best value, and if you can't see that, then your not comparing apple and apples. Thanks but no thanks; I take the transparency I get with Igloo.

Nope,

The game at the travel level is really about winning. It hasn't been about fun since you signed them up and paid cash for that first coaches clinic.

And three tourneys sounds like you are trying to keep up with the Pack, and those guys are nuts.

Huge believer in being around the ball as much as possible. Fall/Winter good time to do it. . I would rather him be at a 90 minute practice with 50+ touches then at a all day tourny where it will be less. Dramatically. They can let that guide there way to a successful spring.

that is one of the most ridiculous comments. That's like saying if you get the best Jordan's money can buy you will play like you're in the NBA. It doesn't matter if you're practicing on a dirt elementary field or Klockner Stadium. If you don't have committed coaches that are capable of bringing out the best from their players and a talented team that pushes their teammates you aren't going to get very far.

If you don't have committed coaches that are capable of bringing out the best from their players and a talented team that pushes their teammates you aren't going to get very far.

Right, and all 3 teams have committed coaches so it's time to move on. The boys on all 3 teams will get better this year and that is really what it is about.

Isn't this a 2024 thread? The base price for 2024 is under $2K. Maybe with everything additional it'll be $3K. Stop ranting about 2021 & 2022. At that age they do do a lot more and they should and it should cost more. If a child in 2024 wants more he has the option to take on more clinics. And that under $2K price includes a helmet. 91 is so much more money, has less tournaments, less practice & a "discount" for the helmet. Express is fairly priced compared to the other clubs. Plus the coaches are great. I know I signed my son up because of the coaches not the name "Express" 1 or 2.

But who will get better faster? This is a business where measurement occurs at all times ultimately presenting itself as wins and losses. Even with the worst coaching they will improve, but if your son is an A level player, you might want to take the training wheels off.

Look, you know full well that the boys get better when they play with better kids that's why there are A and B Teams. As a parent, you must put your boy on the best team that he is suited for (A or B)otherwise you are stunting his growth. If your kid is on the best player on a poor team, even with the best coach it doesn't work. If you put your boy on the middle of the pack team with a poor coach then you should move on. You just have to find the absolute best team and coach combination that suits your boy. You have to do the right thing, even if it is a leap of faith. your boy can surely step it up, they all can do more than you think.

You guys are acting like Igloo is the gold standard. They clearly are not. They lost a ton of games last year and for the most part parents were disappointed that they weren't better. Sure, they won that last B tourney but they have a ton of work to do before you start anointing them one of the best. Since they are not playing in the fall the Express teams will see them at Pro Player. Good luck to your boys with their fall and winter training.

Worst subject course ever. At the end of the day all the teams come out to even money. No doubt. Enjoy it and stop the complaining. All of our boys are lucky to be on a travel team - no matter which one.
Sometimes I wonder if it's one guy going back and forth with himself.

well, there is travel Hockey ( which is more expensive and travels more), travel basketball, baseball, and soccer. Name the sport, there is travel at the youth level. They are all expensive and a cash play, but that is the time we live in. The days of the kids getting on a bike and ridding to the school yard to play and returning at dinnertime are long gone. Most of us are just trying to keep the kids engaged at a sport they enjoy and excel at. If little johnny his sweatshirt with his matching socks, so be it. Why deter him ? there are worse things our kids could be involved in.

Everything else that we send our kids to is run and administered by specialists who are earning a living off of what they are providing our kids. School, doctor, orthodontist, barber, etc. I have no problem with adding lacrosse to this list and having my children receive services from paid specialists. And I have no aspirations of them getting college money or becoming the next Paul Rabil. I just want them to be a part of something that occupies their time in a constructive and healthy way. They love playing, and travel lacrosse mainly occupies space not necessarily taken by other sports played by them. It will also help them get better and perform better for their town, and ultimately, at high school, where without the extra development from the club team, they might not even be good enough to play, and the last thing I need is loads of idle time while they are teenagers.

I'm sure the Pack is playing havoc. Taz will do their own pumpkin classic.

It's nice that Expesss posted the tourneys early. I wonder when Igloo will post their fall tourney schedule; oh wait....

I see both Express teams in Havoc, so which team is the A team and which will play in the B bracket and which team is in the B bracket? Are they both A or B, I guess we can tell by who gets the worst beating.

I guess we will find out at Havoc what team is better. I still think both are B teams though since everyone that is not the Pack or Taz is considered B. Maybe another team steps up this year but I doubt it.

I hate to point this out, and have nothing to to with the Igloo organization, but you my friend seem overly obsessed with the 2024 igloo team. Might be time to regain some much needed perspective. If you son is not on igloo why do you care what tournaments 9 year old boys are playing? From the outside looking you're acting like a teenage boy that got dumped. What happens when you find out where they are playing? Are you going to show up in your best Sergio Tacchani suit to make them jealous?

The pack should play up in a lot of these tournaments. It's better for them that they're challenged. Does them no good to win games by double digits. It's about development, no matter what level a team is currently playing at. Hard to push themselves when they're winning games 14-0

What's up with the Avengers this year. All new kids and from the tryout page it looks like they only took 14 kids this year. I guess they will have additional tryouts to fill the roster

How will they tell the teams apart? Will one team be Good and the other Good-er? Something tells me they will be OK, but if they want to run with the big boys, these youngsters need some extra clinics ($) and maybe a private lesson or two ($).

What's next, "not the FOGO/D-Pole/Middie dad, but he looked Great at practice today! It must be the genetics/coaching/organization." Yup, jealous and weak.

I thought your issue was with the coach? Now that the coach and the majority of the team is at a different club under a different name, why don't you leave the team alone? These are new kids and a new coach and your joke is way old. I'm sure the new families would appreciate you ending your obsession over this team; maybe it's time to grow up.

Are they practicing and will they play any fall tourney's? The program usually has their teams playing fall ball. I believe they played 2x tourneys last fall.

every time someone replies to him/her it's reassuring that person that they have the ability to get under peoples skin. Ignore him/her they will eventually go away. Simple

There is more than one person on the Average trail folks. I can tell you that I did not post earlier, but my issue last year was with the phony tryouts and the screwing over of kids by the Coach and 91 organization. Totally not the right thing to do. Now it seems that he left and between him and 91 some more kids will get hosed. "But he is great at developing the kids" blah, blah, blah. I just isn't right.

And if you would stop kissing the rear end of the coach on 3 different threads (24 - 26) every chance you get, maybe it would all stop. But it's clear that you must be the coaches Wife and just can't help yourself.

You have to expect that Taz will play in their Pumpkin Spice Latte Tourney. Let's just hope this doesn't mean we never get to see any Taz/Pack matchups ever again, even if Taz can't beat Pack, it will be of interest to see if the gap can be closed, or who else can make a run at them as time goes on.

Columbus Day Invitational
Blatant Fall Jam
Mayflower Invite- In Mass

All three Express 2023 teams show the Invitational none of the 2024 teams do. That they have 3 Express teams doesn't give me confidence in an elite level of play. But, it's only the first year and I guess they have brackets to fill.

Shouldn't they have waited to see where TAZ and Pack were going so they could take them on?

I'm sure the Pack is playing havoc. Taz will do their own pumpkin classic.

It's nice that Expesss posted the tourneys early. I wonder when Igloo will post their fall tourney schedule; oh wait....



dont have to wait Igloo hater...they have a fall tourny, just not overkill like some others. Enjoy getting pounded in yours.

Nice...they finally took the training wheels off. Where will we see them this fall?

How do you know Igloo 2024 is playing this fall? They have not even started practicing or had their team meeting.


So Igloo is actually going to make a fall appearance on Monday. I wonder how much they are going to charge the parents since fall ball was never part of their deal.

85% of the Igloo 2024 team are new kids. Should be interesting to see how they develop. Those 4 0r 5 kids they kept from last year wont see their position again this year. Maybe one defenseman, last years middies, forget it, there's a new bunch in town. They are looking to compete going forward, the new blood is how they get there. Excited to watch Monday

Look at the Taz schedule, they enter into brackets where they are playing 2024\2025 mixed teams. How strong can you be if you only feel comfortable beating up on 2025 kids? Step up to the 2023 bracket and lets see how strong you really are. Cute Tazmanian Devil on the helmets though. If you want to scrimmage my daughters 2026 team is being formed, give us a call.

They are all about the tee-shirts. They know they would get crushed in a 2023 bracket

soon you will seen that Wolfpack is stagnant. The new Taz will sweep the 2015-2016 2024 bracket. With Keenan and the new additions they are better than ever. This is their year.

Wolfpack cherry picked the couple they wanted from your team and they gladly left.

Taz is the same garbage team it was last year with a couple of additions that will not make the impact this fool claims. Keenan is another coach that will come and go once he deals with the Brass of this club. Add in the parents (everyone knows who they are) who sabotage the team to keep their boys in the position they want. C'mon man wake up.

Lol j sound like such a fool. Garbage team really, that's how you talk about children. They are anything but garbage they are just as dedicated as the Pack and every other team out there that's trys to improve. I agree don't listen to the garbage that someone is writing/ stirring the pot. Which ever team or organization your involved in and as a parent your better then that.

So your are going to play your games for another year? That's very adult of you. Also, Igloo is pretty Average...Taz put up 13 on them yesterday. Express and ESM both had betters showings vs the Taz.

If you took a look at the sidleline during the games you would notice that didn't have many subs. Defense played all 3 games with no subbing. They were asked to play in the tournament last minute. Good practice though. I'm sure they will play each other again soon.

I love loser parents bashing 9 and 10 year old teams. It's classic. Pull up your lawn chairs and have some more donuts. Living through your son will probably end poorly for both of you.
Who cares how the game ended and by how much. Did the kids get a little better? Were they happy with their red ticket for a free hot dog, or were you too busy lecturing them on the ground ball they missed?
Get a grip - it's 4th grade. Some of these teams have barely practiced!

For this grade maybe 45 kids are on true A teams. The Pack and Taz kids. After that you can call it A but when you lose 13-3 or 9-2 to Taz you can't call your kids team an A team. At the end of the day they are all just B teams trying to compete. Just because Igloo has one team or the Outlaws call their top team Select doesn't make them A teams. Sure, plenty of mommy and daddy's will say their kids are on A teams to make them feel good but it's just not the reality.

Express had 3 defenders for all 3 games. No subs. They played as a favor last minute. Good practice though. They fought hard against Taz & clearly Taz was a better team but it wasn't a bad game. But kids were wiped by the 3rd game against Igloo.

A favor? Been on the team website for a couple of weeks, and if you need another D, then hand a pole to one of your midfielders. Every kid wants to play a little D at this age, don't they? And throw in a long pole and you get a happy camper.

Don't be a sore loser! Just say congratulations to both Taz (9-2) and Igloo (7-3) because they both beat you up.

What I find so interesting is that everyone has their own insecurities. Express, igloo, outlaws, etc all bashing each other and pack and taz BC they know they are a step behind. Tazzies know they aren't the Wolfpack so the bash them and the group below them to feel better. Pack can't beat the top Maryland teams.

What is also obvious is that most of the negative posts have to be from parents who have not been through this before. From experience I can tell you that by 8th grade (only 4 years!) this quickly becomes about your own kid and less about team wins/losses. Which is where is should have been all along!

Go read the 2019 or 2020 boards. Nobody cares on who beats who.

Excuses, excuses.


Express has work to do, both teams. I think the coaches understand that and that is why the are out there practicing and playing a solid fall schedule. A few loses in the fall will only make the teams better in the spring. I can tell you that even though the kids lost 2 games on Monday they had a blast and will learn form it.

If "A" team you mean a legit travel team yes. Are there a couple of "A" teams better ? Yes, there can more than 1 or 2 "A" teams. I would classify an "A" team as one that will beat most town teams, and will play in competitve games if other elite teams. Its good to have some rivalries fellas, but it is 4th grade, so lets not forget that along with winning, good sportsmanship, and having fun go hand and hand. We as parents should emphasize learning the game and sportsmanship on our end. criticising 4th graders as adults is insane, and it should be eliminated. so stop already. we all know who is a stonger team, lets teach the boys to be modest at the same time. your son will be better for it.

Not at all, but as teams go they are head and shoulders above all other 2024 LI teams. Clearly A level teams. No other teams at this age even give them a game, hence they are "A Teams"

No doubt there are great kids on all levels of teams and a bunch that that aren't even playing travel yet.

What 2024 team would you consider A that is not the Pack or Taz?

How are they not in the same category has pack, last season last time they played pack won by a goal and pack coaches said they got lucky. Now I know what your going to say that earlier in season they beat them 11 to 0 in the rain where they had 9 man up goals. That is true and was something would not happen again as we all saw in the last tourny they played each other. Plus they scrimmaged last season also and that was very well played by both and even..

Are you guys or little boys.. Who is better, pack or taz. My kids team is better than your kids team. Please tell me grown men aren't arguing over this complete nonsense. Look at the 2019, 2018 message boards, nobody cares whose club team is better. In 15 years when your son goes for a job interview, nobody is asking him his lacrosse teams record when he was a 9 year old kid. Team is great, awesome enjoy, arguing about it though, is makes you sound foolish.

The real list

If you care to even rate 4th graders:

#1 Madlax
91 Wolfpack
Bethesda, Md


Wolfpack and Bethesda battled it out in Ocean City this year. They split the games, both scores 8-6. As close in talent as they come. Madlax has never faced the Wolfpack, but if you go by the battles they've had with Bethesda, the competition would be even. And if you've been around this age group the other real A team is Arden Diamondbacks out of MD. After that the Legacy Taz comes in at a gap down from these 4 teams. Go ahead and bash all you want the scores over the last 2 seasons lay it out pretty clearly.

Well so U know BLC beat Madlax 2 times already this fall last year TAZ beat diamond backs last year and lost to Madlax by one. So again all your rankings mean nothing.

Actually, taz lost to diamondbacks although it was a good game. Taz also lost to Madlax 8-2. My math isn't what it used to be but I think that's a 6 goal differential.

Go count your hurt Defensemen, I've heard they were gassed, possibly on the field 31.23% too long. That BS from you is too funny. On one hand it's fall ball and on the other you are making up phony excuses. Just say good job and move on to some more appropriate B level competitions.

Good job Igloo...You got the bronze on Monday. Hope you don't get fooled into thinking they are an A team though when they got waxed by Taz 13-3. You would think an A team would have at least made the champ game, no?

That was not a true town team. It was a combo of ESM plus 6 WP kids from Bayshore.

you sound bitter...I guess if your son can't actually make the team, he may as well look the part.
Compression shorts???? Hmmm, were they hand me downs as well.
The only thing that made any of the town teams game close was the goalie...I guess in his hand me down apparel as well.
You should have asked the coach if he could at least loan you some new gear...
He was the one laying low in the corner watching the town team.

Plenty of town teams do it that's not the point I'm fine with it just don't sit there and say everyone is from same town it's no big deal, and then call people creeps for noticing gloves and people on sidelines who they know and when're they live.

It wasn't a town tourney and they didn't enter a ESM, they entered as the Sharks. Nothing wrong with that.

It all comes down to 1 question. Has the TAZ ever beat the Wolfpack? The answer in No. Until that day happens all the Taddies on here sound like weak jealous fools. Very simple solution; Beat the Wolfpack and then talk. Until then your wasting energy. And as for your "last game they won by a goal" the WP played the worst they ever have and the Taz played the game of their lives and still lost. There is nothing else to talk about.

See the Igloo Daddies are upset they ESM made it to the Finals and their so called "A" team only took home the bronze. That's why Mr. No Clue panties are all in a bunch. $3000 for 3rd place.

WP is a good team; Taz is a good team. ESM had at least 6 WP kids....yes this is a fact. While still a town team, 6 players who didn't sub that much is still a lot and can have influence on the outcome of a game. As for WP and Taz, both teams are close in skill (but I think that WP is just a bit more well rounded, esp on the defensive side) - don't think the blowlout loss outome of the laxfest game last year or nxt 1 goal game is typical or common, but in reality - think WP may be a 2-3 goal game winner at this pt more consistently - until Tax proves them wrong...having said that, taz added a bunch of new kids and awesome head coach this year while WP pretty much kept the team intact - they practice as much as the WP - the difference will probably be on the defensive side - time will tell.

Well the Pack did add a few Taz kids...so that's a win for them and a lose for Taz. Also, being consistent is not a bad thing

We'll see if taz can be as good as they were last season. They had to replace a few players and have a new coach. The new players look good and the coach is great, but time will tell how it all comes together.

Nobody has a problem with ESM combining teams it is not a town tournament. It was the guy who posted that it was a town team that went to the finals over igloo that started all the BS. It was a great day of lax and you could not ask for better weather.

You are correct, the weather was awesome, but storm clouds must be gathering in the land of igloo. True, there were BBP/Pack kids brought in to fill spots on ESM, but there were also kids on that team that don't play travel at all. That said, does anyone who watched the games Monday think for one minute that the $3000 a player, smack talking igloo would have had any chance of beating ESM? $3000?? Hope those lined up bags look as good as they did last season.

Some 2024 kids are 10. Some are still 8. Big difference.

Why do all these "teams" grab from other teams & play wherever they want? One kid was done with another team so he jumped on to play with Taz/Pack/Igloo in the Finals?!? wth is up with that?

A team is a team. Either you're on them team or you're not on the team. Right?

You are in need of serious help.. Mr Rogers knows it is the parents, what he is laughing at is what most of us laugh at.. These kids are freaking 9 years old. Who cares what team wins or loses.. In a few years they will all be completely different players..

It really is amazing how rabid you parents are.



You're absolutely 100% correct. I will seek help immediately.
What are we thinking???....commenting about 2024 travel teams on the 2024 travel team comment board. I say we all just trade cookie recipes from this point forward. Anyone have a good coconut chocolate chunk one???


I hear the Igloo cookbook has an awesome one, way above average. The ingredients are too expensive, but the cookie tastes great and the packaging is really good too.


LMAO

Add up all of your expenses. Add up all your tourney fees. Add up all the add ons that come in. And you are saying you are not in the 3k area. Igloo is a SECOND year program. 5 practices so far. The VAST majority of boys have not played together.
In the spring, things might be different.

I'd say most of the travel teams cost that. 91, Express, Igloo, Legacy.

Once you add the initial deposit & additional practices & tourney costs, it is a high dollar adventure.

I feel bad for the kids that go from 91 to Express (etc)....they have to buy new helmets, new gloves, new unis, all new merchandise for Mommy too.

Like everything else its a ton of money. Easy 4 grand a year. That's the way it is now. Lessons, clinics, helmets. Money, money, money. The only alternative is just play PAL. A lot of kids want more than that. My son is one of those kids. My other son goes to day camp in the summer, 30 days (6 weeks), over 4 grand. Just crazy how much all this crap costs.

$4k is the number for most of us for year round... Throw in PAL and their uniforms and every other nickel and dime, we all get there. But it's still fun to torment the igloo parents about cost and TB (who is a really good coach) is a little nuts with lining up the bags.

not as big a D-bag as the Longboards head coach who after scoring with a minute left and being up by 7 goals screams out "Pour it on boys !!!" .. What an embarrassment. Great job coach, I hope your championship T-Shirt shrinks in the dryer.

in all honesty, the committee running these events should enforce a strict set of "sportsmanship" rules for the coaches to follow and pass down to the parents. Im not saying take the foot off the gas, let the kids play and play hard, BUT, enforce the coaches displaying good sportsmanship. Its not only the handshake at the end of the game fellas and this is NOT high school, its still youth sports. To have parents make comments towards to other team is unacceptable at this age. To have coaches say comments like "pour it on"....come on guys. You want to be hard on your team and your players....thats your thing, and the parents on that team will either accept it or not. Thats fine, but to criticize the other team and have parents screaming like they are at a Yankee game is unacceptable and if the coaches will not tell the parents to chill out than the event staff should walk around and enforce good sportsmanship at their event. Seems like Halloween Havoc had plenty of guys to do that. Sooner or later fists will come out and it will all be a total disaster, correct it now please.

Gotta love MC and JK walking the grounds of Halloween Havoc when their team is not playing in the tournament. Sad to see parents toss their kid around the Lacrosse circuit from team to team. Pick a team and show some loyalty. Burned out by 7th grade, but you guys keep walking around those tournaments telling everybody how good your boys are. haha

I dont know who those initials stand for. I agree with showing loyalty, 100 percent. However if your kids team is not playing, how are you not being loyal. Allowing your 9 yr old son to run around and play lacrosse on a saturday afternoon with other kids, dosent sound like a bad thing to me.

its not fair to the kids who are actually ON THAT team. Imagine ( I know its hard for some of you because you're all such amazing athletes) that you're on a team, and than all of a sudden here comes little mikey who never practices with you or plays regularly with you and now he is playing and your on the bence. Is that kid happy ? Is that kid getting a good experience ? I sthat kid getting his money's worth? No No No. One team only guys....if his Pal team is not in same tourney and he plays on that team, thats different. but to switch teams during the same event, another thing organizers need to enforce

There are no rules and no sportsmanship in club lacrosse. You spend your money, you take your chances. This is 4th grade. Trust me, It will only get worse. People are lining up to pour money into this monster that we as parents created. Hopefully this does not take a toll on our kids and they continue to have fun. You will have the same posts when they are in 8th grade.

So parents feel they can make stuff up conversations they heard and did not hear. There where 4 kids from Taz that made both "LONGBOARDS" and taz. It is a team made up of riverhead and Shoreham wading river. The parent your talking about who repremanded there son in the bushes is not the same guy your all saying is class less and is an embarrassment to youth sports.but the conversation between the parent and child in the bushes had nothing to do with lax at all! But it's okay for other teams including Millan to cheat last yr and use grades higher to win! Didn't cheat this yr and got beat fair and square every child on this team is 8 or 9yrs old. We are all grown adults this is youth sports stop slandering other people because you as an adult shouldn't be talking about any other adults and there children and the way they are raised.

you Longboard parents are so ridiculous. You are absolutely positively wrong. Do you think a organization like Millon Force would use higher grade kids. Ludicris, absolutely ludicris. It was a 2nd/3rd grade combined team. 6 - 2nd graders by the way. What parent would let another kid take their place in order to win ? Not that game. Your off base and 100% wrong.

Longboards is a good team. Taz is a good team. The game we played against them, the coach was good. He could have racket up the score more than he did, but he had the boys passing. The parents on the sideline were the rude ones. Unfortunately the few bad parents make the rest of the team look bad, but really all I saw was the one obnoxious Yankee dad. The rest of the parents get a bad rap for the one bad.
But overall, very talented team for 9 years old. I enjoyed watching them play.

Last years game at Halloween havoc millon force and longboards game were professionally filmed. You can clearly see the older millon kids playing on the adjacent field . Those same older millon kids joined the championship game. There's video proof of this. Secondly, one of the 4th graders was from Riverhead - our own town.
So please, don't post on this board that millon doesn't use these tactics.
Lastly, not one longboard parent wrote anything negative on the BOTC , as a credit to the longboard parents they let the millon boys have their day in the sun . However, it only took millon 12 hrs to use the championship photo on their website as the "poster boy" of their organization .

You are definitely wrong. I don't know which statement is crazier. The professionally filmed comment or that older kids played in the champ game. Absolutely ridiculous allegations. I would love to see the video. Bottom line, they were 2nd and 3rd graders. Just deal with the fact that you needed more than a few outsiders from Taz that are better than what is on your own team to beat Million force this year. And some of your kids didn't even get to play in the championship game. Hope they like their tshirts.

What a great idea... post a video of youth players without parental permission...pathetic! Interestingly enough I too possess a video of a group of longboard's parents making fun of an injured player during a longboard/Empire game at Lax clash over the summer. As the child from Empire lay injured and crying on the floor 5 class A parents, both men AND women on the sidelines are making fun of him for crying. The only difference is it isn't in the background it's front and center for your viewing pleasure. By all means put that video up and I'll do the same. My guess is the LB's will come out looking a lot worse than Million.

Definitely a little over the top, having someone "professionally" video the games to catch cheaters. But, I also get the frustration with the cheating that goes on. You see it constantly now. Team A beats team B during the tourney then team B brings in other kids (sometimes older) for the finals and smokes the team that beat them in regular play. Some will try and come up with different ways to justify it and say "everyone does it". Fact is that not every team does it and it's not fair to the kids. I guess it's just the way things are, but it still sucks.

It might be time to end the anonymous postings. If that happens, I'll be the first to register.
Way too many immature parents(?) posting here. 4th grade kids playing and many adults act like it's for D1 scholarships! Coaches who cheat with older kids playing for them must be removed and the CLUB should pay a HEAVY fine. How does ANY coach who knowingly cheats, feels good about winning a tournament?
Parents who ridicule another team's player should be removed and their kid removed from the club. Explain that to your son!
Enjoy the tournament... And keep your mouth shut if you have nothing positive to say!

Within the next year, all soccer will be birth year and rightfully so. I would assume lacrosse will follow suit shortly.

You can not enforce squat. USL is for all purposes just a marketing company. But thanks for the magazine and taking my payment.

It doesn't have to be that complicated. Just play age based in youth and grade based starting in 8th grade fall.

Who cares. Are you really that competitive about 4th grade lacrosse. You basically asked a question and answered it with hostility. Who are you upset at? The schedule is not even out yet, get some liquor in your coffee and chill man. It's ok we all know Jonny is a lax god, but do we have to hear about it so often

What are the Long Boards talking about professionally video taped. I hope it was. My son is on Millon and we were 2-3 graders last year. We played kids out of position in the third game and played them in their correct positions in the finals. I had 2 parents yelling at our families in the parking lot in front of their kids. This year Long Board did have multiple kids from Taz not just Miller Place kids as one of the Taz kids is in my sons class and stated they asked him to play to beat Millon because they feel we cheated last year. Everyone from both teams know this is the truth. How sad is the Long Board coach who was thinking about this for a whole year. These kids are 9 years old and neither is an Elite team. Let these kids play, develop and have fun.

I beg to differ. I would rather my son play against a great team then an average team. His take away will far exceed his take away from a marginal win or loss. This is Fall ball and this is 4th grade Lax. These boys are sponges and need to learn now. I'm a firm believer that 4th grade is a crucial point in the development of a lax player. This is the year they should stop looking at planes, trains and butterflies and start paying attention to the game. They can still have fun since they are only 9/10 but they should start focusing more than they have previous. This of course is my opinion and other may disagree.

LOL your probably right. As Pack Dad (which I'm obviously not) Id want to play others that at least challenge my kid. But on the flip side they are 4th graders let them play with other 4th graders. I'm sure most if not all the boys have friends on other teams that they never get to play because they play up all the time. My son plays on the Hitmen. We are not from that area so he doesn't really know anyone yet. BUT he has friends from school that are on the Outlaws, Wolfpack, Express, True Blue and Millon Force. He and his friends get excited when they play each other. Friendly bragging rights. He will likely play all these teams at some point but probably never Wolfpack.

I think there is shift going on with the proliferation (SAT word of the day) of club and town run clubs. Meaning PAL lacrosse is not spring lacrosse. Spring lacrosse for town has become playing in tournaments is what's important and playing PAL games is less and less important. PAL still has it's place for non full year laxers. Catch 22 is PAL is probably the most fun a full year laxers will have, but can you do club, town club and PAL. I can tell we hardly miss any tournaments, but missing a PAL game isn't a big deal.

im wondering if your spending 10 months a year playing and practicing with kids that can go left, right, catch throw as good as can be expected at 9/10 - then you go back to a town practice, or game- seems like 3 steps back, is it even worth it? im just thinking outloud

PAL is quickly becoming a thing of the past. the PAL does nothing for there communities anymore I hear more and more stories of no support, here is a dozen balls and a chest protector good luck and o yea paint your own lines on your practice field and we will reimburse you. Complete joke. Not to mention where does all the MONEY go to they have been collecting for past 30 years. Play for your town absolutely if you have a coach that wants to do some town tour us because PAL wants no part of that either.

everybody talks about burning your kid out, maybe thats the 2 months to take a break and pick it up again in june for spring/summer - kids that play all fall, practise inside in winter , then spring , then summer, when do u get a break- seems counter intuitive, but if your looking for quality over quantity- why not

The owner of the long boards has twins that play on taz, so two of the taz players you complain about have been playing on the long boards from day one and taz for 4 weeks now. The other two are their friends and play on more than one team. All young kids playing in their age group. People just justifying the [lacrosse] whooping the longboards put on your teams while the roster was filled with kids of all talent levels

Every kid played and the two taz superstars you guys are stuck on are the longboards owners kids and the third is his next door neighbor who used to play on 91. Should his kids not play for there own team? And ps- watch a tape before you comment. Clearly older kids from other teams joined the roster to beat the longboards.

Believe what you want but the coaches mixed up players the whole game. The score doesn't matter because they knew they would win. It was a weak tournament for that bracket. Good practice for them though.

Played starters first game and it was 13 1. Circled ball last 5 minutes.

Interesting discussion Taz vs. Express. 13-1 was Taz all over Express early with disciplined play, familiarity with each other and Express first tournament ever. Not just first tournament. Until they beat Outlaws first game, they never had a scrimmage let alone game. I watched second games closely as well. Outlaws were much better against Express and Express much better against Taz(tied at halftime). Take nothing away from Taz-good players, well coached and together for some time. It's early, actually it's fall!! Let's see these teams in spring/summer when coaches have had a chance to coach these other teams, that have barely played together. The talent levels are not dissimilar at the top.

Actually Express has more than one face-off guy. I think they found that out on Sat as two of the boys that faced off with TAZ did very well

PAL is an important part of the growth for early Laxers. If good enough to play for Club(play not just pay), then playing with your PAL schoolmates and being a leader is valuable experience. It can help create friendships and reputations locally, that are important for a child. My son's club coach last year specifically mentioned that PAL games should be played, as most Club tournaments are after PAL season. I thought that was great approach and left the decision to player/parent without undue pressure to vacate PAL team. JMO

Well then your boys have some catching up to do, better get them to practice. You are running out of excuses. Express has had teams as long as the other organizations but was poor two years ago. Not much better last year and still a wide gap to being discussed as somewhat of a good team this year. Right now Express certainly does not have the reported two A teams, the record says two B teams. Better get the boys to work!

Express 2024 O'Reilly played well in the games I saw. I'm told that team is on their second year and it showed. In the final it seemed like neither team could penetrate the other's defense effectively but O'Reilly's team shared and moved the ball well up close and the '91 combo team wasn't able to get in close. Unusual to see a game with a final score of 4-2.

Tough spot for Taz. Moving up will expose the gap. I'm sure that they don't want to be on the receiving end of one or more of those 12-2 beat downs.

Since when do you combine game scores? Once express A figured it out, they lost by 3 in the second game and were ahead for a lot of the game..plus it was the first game they ever played together. How long has taz been playing together?

so according to you, Taz is the only other "A" team around? Personally they are all very close with WP way ahead and Taz behind them. Other than those two, all the other teams are in the same class. So Taz could continue to win in this bracket, or move up to 2023 B. If they stay, they should win with some class though. Express upgraded with both teams, and Igloo still looks like a good team. 91 Combo looked well run with some very sound players. Again, if Taz is not getting any competition, move up to 2023B, and the rest of the 2024 is wide open.

Pretty sure 91 Combo is the new Avengers, who didn't have enough kids to field a team on their own so they had to pull from other 91 programs. They had half a dozen kids from 91 Texas up just to fill out the roster. Those Texas kids were great athletes and really good lacrosse players.

Don't know if you'll be seeing the 91 Combo team again - was mostly boys from outside LI. Texas and upstate ny. MD was a no show, some conflict or something. There was 2 or 3 boys from LI 91 2025 white and 91 2025 orange's goalie.

it was a B team vs. a pickup team. What you saw was an ok/good B Team who has played together for a year plus taking advantage of that familiarity to win in fall ball.

Congratulations.

Will they play B again at Mayflower? That will keep them away from Taz, but the other Team will likely get the beat down. Who knows, will the Geese play up in their own tournament? I suppose not, but that would probably be an even matchup.

Express played the Taz on Columbus Day and lose 9-2. They will play each other again and they will get better for it.

As for the Geese, can't see them playing up. They did that last year at Pro Player and got beat up pretty good and all 3 teams they played were asked to take it easy.

Based on the fall, Igloo, Express 2x, Outlaws Elite, Longboards, 91 Combo, Express North, etc are all good teams. Time will tell if any of them will take down the Taz. Would assume WP will play up in every LI tourney except Lax Fest.

Lets Call Pack A, then Taz is (not quite or maybe) an A team, so that says everyone else (who Taz will crush) are B Teams. Unfortunately, the Pack are screwing up the curve. But because they are there, how else do you want to handle it?

It isn't easy, or nice to say, but even if Taz is an A team, who else is an A? I would say no one. Then let's call all the rest B+ to B-. It's not bad to be a B, isn't that above average? Or is there just too much grade inflation here to make the parents happy and the grades are really B to C?

Pack plays 2023 going forward. Except Laxfest this team has no reason to play at the 2024 level anymore. No reason to rip into this statement because its backed up by results. Going to tournaments and winning 15-1 is not doing the team any good. Playing 2023 A or B is the right move for these boys, win some tournaments, lose some tournaments it doesn't matter as long as the competition is there. Well coached team with a solid base of good players should play where they belong. Nothing against any 2024 teams out there, but this team is built to play up.

Let some of these "other" teams get some practices in, and we will see where it shakes out in the fall. Some of these teams don't even have plays going yet. Hint for you - never seen the Pack play, but I have seen Taz. And the rest of the groups will match up evenly come spring. No question.

The Avengers are now Express 2024 O'Reilly.

91 combo is not the new 2024 team. It was a pick up group. Texas, Tristate and a few 2025s from 91s long island teams. The group was mixed 2024/25.

Pack is the best (no doubt about it). Sure on the 2023 comment except the thing is the pack would have had more competition facing Taz at Blatant then they had vs the Tornados. Enjoy.

For someone who has experienced his son win a tournament in the B class I can tell you this. The kids know that there are some A teams out there that a very strong, that being said, for other programs to win a tournament in the B class is just as satisfying for a 9/10 year old. Winning after a long day with teammates is very gratifying and boasts the kids moral and love for the game 10 fold. Yes they are so called B, but at this stage, its about the kids and the experience. Thats why they have split divisions. Congrats to the kids on the strong A teams, who im sure put in a ton of effort. Keep in mind though fellas, the boys that are the big ones now could very easily end up being avg or small. Growth comes at different stages im sure you all know. At this stage, let it be competitive but fun. A/B/C who cares, I guess for 4th graders its for their Daddy's to brag. good luck boys.

Not even close! Pack wins by 5+ goals. Taz is so weak they took 2025 kids to fill the roster.

Dude, you are such a loser. Do you have a life. Do you have friends. I was watching monday night football with my 2 boys, enjoying my family. While I was doing this, you are on a website arguing whose 9 yr old lacrosse team is better. You say blah , blah, to learning the game and having fun. Man you are a loser. Get a life. Go tell your co workers today that my sons team is better than the other 9 year old team in lacrosse. Let them all call you loser.

This is a sad and ridiculous statement from a jealous parent. These kids all play PAL football and are roster verified EVERY week.


True, that's why they play 10's

Both teams are playing up in Mass in a few weeks. We'll see how close the teams really are once they play the game.


No we won't, Taz is not playing up. Check tourney machine they are playing in the 2024 bracket...but nice try. It's funny when those things called facts get in the way of lies.

When Taz is ready to step up to 2023 then they will get another shot at the WP. Until then they can keep beating up on the 2024 teams and feel good about themselves. The one goal game was a fluke, Taz played the best game of their lives and the WP played their worst and the coach let them know it at the end of the game. If you want to go by goals in all of their games its close to 30-5 WP. You can tell yourself all you want that they are close, but your own coaches know the truth. Now go away.

The only person that knows if WP is playing up in a tourney is the coach. You are just a fat dad outfitted in a 91 tracksuit, 91 hat and orange sneakers. You know nothing. I bet pack plays 2024 this year more than 3x.

legit question - just curious - if 91 wp had an open tryout and the people picking the team were completely unbiased not affiliated with existing team, how many existing wolfpack kids would make the team reagradless?

Depends on who tries out. If every good kid in the grade tried out, which not all do, then I would guess half (or just over half) the current kids would make it. Figure 3 or 4 Taz kids and then the top players from the other teams. I guess some kids don't try out because they are happy where they are or read this forum and don't think they will get a fair shot.

Guys, lets stop with the petty stuff and do our best to help a family and their son who NEEDS real help. Lets take a minute or two and go to the thread on here called "Team Sean 38"- this young man needs our help as adults of lacrosse community. Breaks my heart.

WP are the best. I don't think anyone except maybe one or two morons would argue with that fact. And boasting about playing up for whatever reason when you face teams like the Tornados = also a bunch of crap. So many tools barking on this website.

Good luck to all the 2024 teams this weekend. I use this board to hopefully learn a few things from those that have older travel kids. I certainly root for my son's team, and when it comes down to it, I root for all of the LI teams during tournaments. 9 and 10 year olds deserve that! Have some fun!!

Brine - you play all the Maryland teams as historically they don't travel far.

NLF - Pottstown Pa

Legacy - Devins Mass

NXT - Pa

LI tourneys are good as well, But by the time summer comes you have played all the LI teams and this will give you a chance to play other clubs. You'll likely see the Li clubs at these tourneys anyway.

That's my opinion based on experience.

Not sure if 91 went 4-0 in 2021 group. Primetime claims that they went 4-0 in 2021 and they played Team 91 ambush.

I don't have a dog in any of these arguments and my kid is a second sometimes third string Middie so there is no connection to any of this personally But I watched that Wolfpack team play today at Yale and all I can say is that there is some serious lacrosse being played by those boys . Very impressive for 9 yr olds. After reading all the threads on here about this team I had to see it for myself. I did not see one weak player on this team and the coaching was such another level from what I've seen that I can understand the success that these boys are having. I am not new to the travel world and I have two other children one boy, one girl at older levels than this team and all I can say is I was impressed. Their first line attack, middie and defense were moving the ball like they have been playing for a long time together. Hats off to 91 with this squad, fun to watch.

Bluefish went 2-1 with a 3 goal lose to Express. Decent team

Sharks are not good, they would lose to decent town teams. Got shut out 11-0 to Express and would have lost to Bluefish too but for whatever reason didn't play them. The competition was lacking at this tourney. The Brooklyn team was a bad PAL team and Hampton Bays was a 3rd grade team.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2024-4th Grade Fall 2015 Summer 2016 - 11/16/15 05:15 PM
Bluefish looked good, for a new team they have some potential. Good luck to them and all the kids in this age bracket. The Brooklyn team too, keep at it and great to see them at the tourney this weekend.

Which Express (North, A, AA) too many teams to keep track?

Well done man. You've successfully rooted out another "B" bracket in a tournament. Keep up the good work and maybe one day we can rid the world of these B and C teams and the mighty TAZ can just show to collect their Championship shirt. Lol. Please keep it up...you idiots keep me laughing.

When these weak B bracket kids surpass your all mighty Taz son in a few years because they actually get playing time and have fun playing, we'll see what kind of comments you will be shooting out. And your son probably won't even be playing - one because he hates not getting playing time, two they've cut him because the B kids got better than him and three because he can't stand being yelling at and embarrassed by his father.
I think the B bracket isn't so bad for a 9 year old who plays most the game, is developing and having fun.

Every time there is a comment on here about a B team or B tournament you keep accusing TAZ or Pack dad/moms for the comment. What makes u think that there are so many people on here from all these threads trying to stir the pot, maybe it's the same guy writing to his self. Ignore the dumb crap use the site what it's intended for. People just trying to get info on a tournament don't bite when someone makes a nonsense post and take the good out of it, and stop getting so worked up.
