BOTC is opening our Fall 2015 through Summer 2016 thread covering the Girls 2021-7th Grade age group.
Ok question tryouts are here and with so many travel teams my head is spinning. I'm fairly new and learning insight on some teams but trying to figure out best teams for my daughter to tryout for. Meaning strong coaching etc... She typically plays attack or defense. Just this past season the team she was on the coaches had a lot to be desired for. Wasn't happy at all. Taking all advice as this is a fairly new and quickly becoming a learning process

How about this: Ask her where she wants to play.
I quickly learn why some people do not register as users and respond anonymously. Just looking for insight as the whole travel lacrosse "world" is new to us. But I forgot my 11 year old will know good team coaches and directors and lax programs to choose from on her own maybe because she likes the uniform color! How about an educational response from an adult who remembers what it's like starting out and asking around because they wanted good training for their child and overall a great program! I'm by far not one of these living thru my child type parents ,like I see many others doing. Just looking for advice. Now if I could actually get from real insight and advice that would be great! Last I checked you learn by asking, not sarcastic sly remarks that are meaningless!

Why not PM one of us and ask.. The Hop will always help you out and with my limited knowledge of the game do know the principals and who I would go to if my child was looking.
Thank you! This site is new as well didn't know you can do that! Thank you for the input

It all depends on what you are looking for in a club. Remember just because your daughter makes a team she has to put in many hours every week throughout the year to remain in the team because there are many girls looking for her spot. You can choose a club that is highly competitive or one that is more like a PAL extension. The decision should be more of a family one because it will effect every member of your household . Some things to factor in are: where the team will be holding their practices, what and where the tournaments they enter, coaching staff......remember winning record doesn't matter as long as the team is competetive.

Good point about the travel - not to name the club, but if you are not into a weekly trip down the Turnpike from mid-May until late June. Look elsewhere.
Yes great point, luckily my child does put in the time and I thank you for your educational response. We live and learn thru this process!!!

Would you mind sharing the name of the club your daughter played for? Many people looking for a first or new clubs so your input about coaching is important.
Understandable to want the information, but I won't post bad press about any team(s). As I like to say what didn't work out for me and a few others might not be the case for other families.

Coaches had a lot to be desired? But they may be ok for someone else? I don't really get it, but ok.
I'm not going to bash on public forum the coaches. I do not feel the need to elaborate but think the general statement of the coaches had a lot to be desired for speaks for itself. I'm also suggesting that it's my opinion and someone else's of them could very well be different! Does that makes better sense for you?

What don't you get?
This poster had a bad experience and feels the coaching was lacking. That's heard from many club parents.
No club name was mentioned...
Move on.

Tryouts in MD are in a couple weeks. Any MD teams going to get a win over M&D this year? Curious to see what movement there is between teams.

It seems like this poster is looking for feedback on clubs to help make a decision as to where his/her daughter should try out. Am I misunderstanding?

But, they said that others may not have the same issues with the coaches. I'm curious. And how could someone give ligitimate advice when they don't know what that person is trying to avoid. Who knows, their issue with the coach could have been playing time.
I'm suggesting that with the new season approaching hopefully changes have been made starting with the director down to the coaches. The issues were brought to his attention last year a number of times so "hopefully" the program will be changed for the better!!!!

Personally I decided not to stick around to wait and see! I can definitely let you know it absolutely was not about playing time for my child! Let's not forget the program runs different age groups and coaches move with these girls. So the "others" I speak of are with different coaches and are of different age groups. Just like in any other program.

Let me ask you or anyone else a few questions let see what responses I get! Before any tournaments if for example your game starts at 10am what time are you/team expected to be there? Practice: if your practice at 6-8 what time as parents you expect them to start practicing? If you are guaranteed 15 practices during the summer and you receive emails constantly it's cancelled and not due to heat what are your thought? Or during tournaments your child's coach is texting instead of coaching. I can go on or do we get my point.....
Yes that is exactly what I was looking for

You are obviously not happy with "brand X" lacrosse club, you are looking for information on other clubs, and that is a perfect example of how these message boards can be used in a productive manner. I get you don't want to bad mouth the club you are walking away from, but letting other people know is also productive so they may avoid a similar situation. Knowing where your at now will also help people recommend a new club or team for your daughter. There are vast differences in the skill level and ability as you hop around from club to club and team to team. The coaching and organization and every thing your looking for may be present on say a top YJ or TG team, is your daughter able to make those rosters? Likewise if your leaving one of those teams, does someone's recommendation for a lower level team do you any good? Where your coming from can help put into context where you are going. Good luck with your search.

To add to that - are you out on the island or from Westchester. Knowing where you are or where you are from will help. What if someone recommends the club you are trying to leave.
I'm on the Island and I definitely know they won't recommend the club I'm leaving. I'm not worried whether she will make the roster on YJ or TG's. Quite frankly she just trained recently with Ms. Smith. So last thing I'm concerned with is how my child can play!

That's where everyone gets caught up!!! It's not about the team NAMES parents!! Please stop twisting everything people write and let's just focus on the question! And if you know on some great travel teams that you heard good things aboutjust reply saying saying so.
And I don't mean all that to you directly I'm just making a general statement overall! So please don't mistake all that towards you!

Sorry, but the questions were kind of vague and open ended. You did not say where you were coming from or what exactly you were looking for. Tracking this post since yesterday - it sounded like you were looking for Xanadu. Dude, nothing out there is perfect and a pure Nirvana. When it comes to club lax nothing is perfect - they all have their warts. My youngest daugher is in 2021 - my oldest is doing her college visits right now. If you want perfect - stick with PAL and coach the team. Sorry, that's how I'm - answer questions so that people can help. "Help me help you".

I heard that M&D and Heros are the teams to be on - especially at the lower age groups. If you can ge on either squad your daughter will be set.

Central Maryland is a big place with a lot of lacrosse players. Heroes is a very good program but located in Howard County. If you live in Baltimore County, that is a long haul to get to practice on a weekday night. The same goes for M&D. In Baltimore County, this will be a very interesting period for tryouts. The teams will likely lock in two years so it is time to get to a place where you know you want to be through high school. Diamonds has gained some momentum but they are not in the NPGYLL. C2 has a good team but they only have teams in a few graduation years and again, they are not in the NPGYLL. Skywalker's will be much improved as many of the girl's playing up will now be on their 2019 team. TLC had some good wins early and then seemed to have lost their way. MD United had a great year and they seem to have the best program in Anne Arundel County. The fall tournaments should be interesting.

You already seem to know the programs around LI - you named off YJ and TG? You probably have your kid doing private sessions with someone - maybe even SS. Why are you bothering asking - I'm under the impression that you are already well informed about the various clubs on LI.

If you are looking for a girls club on LI the top 3 are YJ, TG and Elevate. I had seen a reference on here to 91. Their girls program is just awful. The only other girls program worse than them on LI is fl$. I have no idea how people write checks to those clubs!

What other team on LI besides YJ would beat Elevate? TG in this age group isnequal to elevate? Elevate plays all top teams in this age group.

Please be more specific as to what you are looking for. Are you looking for a stronger team? If so, where are you now? Legacy had no 2021 team last year.

Legacy had 2021 players on the 2020 Teal team. I'm sure they will field a competitive 2021 team next summer.

BLUE DEVILS is a good sound club... Usually good showings in the tournaments they enter which is about 4-5 in the summer. Fraction of the cost of other programs . They have a 2021, 23 and 24 team.

There used to be a window block on the left side of this website page that had all the website links to all the girls teams. At this time of the year all these people are looking around and asking questions about what teams/options are available, that link window was a great resource for people. I know that over the years BOTC moves things around, restructures the pages and elements on the page. Did this list of girls club links get moved somewhere or is it gone?

Not a YJ person or fan, but they are a top team in this age as well, if not the top after this summer (things can change year to year)

I assume you are kidding? M&D and YJ are heads and shoulders above every other team at this age group. M&D will be even better this year with 7 new players. I assume YJ added talent as well. Good luck to Legacy and Elevate this year. You will need it.

A team is nearly impossible unless you are a tremendous talent, last year they didn't add very many to b team either. Though the b team is significantly weaker. Actually weaker than TG's b team and Liberty's b team.

Maybe so but the B team is going to get a lot stronger when 3 A girls move down.

Great read, loaded with information in choosing the right Club for your daughter!

by Trevor Tierney NCAA Assistant Coach University of Denver
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. In summation, I will pass along what 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.

Most clubs cap the top teams at 18-20 so they can play to win and keep everyone happy - 2 middie lines, 6 attack, 6 defenders and 2 goalies. That's probably the best mix for a comnpetitive team, everyone plays and the bottom five kids on the larger size teams who would be sitting the bench in all the close games aren't really needed in the blowouts. I here this model may be coming to YJ 2020 & 2021 teams this year, parents are complaining about unnecessary dead weight at the bottom of the rosters, at some point 26 kids and one ball doesn't work

Everyone makes comments without hearing the whole story. I had a conversation with the director and was told they are only filling rosters with players they feel will contribute. I heard they could have filled 3 teams easily at 2020 but are running only two quality teams. They seem to be angling to build a quality program that will be competitive with quality, professional coaching. Not loaded with inexperienced college players who can't communicate with parents and kids.

Please take this back to your 2020 thread, you did not have a 2021 team this year nor do we wish to hear about next years, we all know your trying to great a buzz about your girls program at all age groups. Only two top programs on Long Island, YJ & TG, the rest can fight it out for third. Thank you.

Hey Biff, just remember your program or new program did not develop any talent, they just stole it from other clubs. In the end character counts, but your not worried about that. I'm guessing your one of those people that sulks in the background complains and does absolutely nothing, except spread your poison to those weak minded followers. Enjoy your program, in sure next year you'll be moving on again, you know the grass is greener over there!

The part-time flip flop girls didn't develop any talent either - they just attracted it with their big name director.

No. Only 17s and 18s do fall tournaments thru TG. Any fall tournaments for this age must be set up by a parent.

That answer doesn't suit you? The only teams that do fall tournaments are the high school age teams. 2017 and 2018 will be going to the presidents cup in Florida and the Navy Rivalry challenge in maryland. There are plenty of fall tournaments for all ages but if you want to go, you have to organize it yourself.

I would strongly recommend trying out. There are 6-8 players that are a little ahead of everyone else at this point skill wise, but after that there will be spots available. New players are added every year why not yours.
I like to read these forums, they're quite informative.
My daughter played for a young team this year, The South Shore Surf, and we gave a Legacy Black a run for their money at Harbor links. All the girls are different and I really appreciate all the attention that the Surf coaching staff pays to each and every girl.
We are not beating TG or Yellow jackets top teams but our girls are from all over the Island and are growing closer and better each week.
IMO our smaller program, takes a lot of the pressure off these 12 year old kids. If you're a good player and concerned about playing time, you will get a lot of it with Surf.
At this age there is only 1 away tournament, and the whole season is only $650.00 with caring varsity coaches. The level of Competition for girls lacrosse on Long Island is high enough. Why do I need to travel to play another Long Island team?

Legacy Long Island doesn't have a Black Team and wasn't at Harbor Links. You might be referring to Legacy Lax out of the Hudson Valley. Not even remotely close to the same level as Legacy Long Island.

No one knows who took the invites, so stop trying to stir the pot and worry about the sinking TG ship. YJ team is a great team as is MD, no start up program is going to begin to talk smack, even before half the roster hasn't paid their deposit yet.

Game changer is term highly dependent upon the team and level of competition that team would be facing. Drop an invisible kid from any clubs A team to B team and they will likely be a game changer. Are there any unknowns out there that would be considered a game changer at the highest level, say for the yj Tg or m&d top teams? Possible, but not too likely. At this age most of the very top "game changer" girls are well established. Two, three years ago you would get massive leapfrogging going on, the talent and athleticism should be apparent now and is mostly already sorted out. The term is relative and means different things to different people.

It's a shame that at the 7th grade level a child has to pick one sport in order to play at the highest level possible in that sport for the ENTIRE year. This specifically goes for LAX and Soccer. For an all around athlete and for this age group all the leagues should encourage their players to cross train. So maybe not to burn out - the right club was chosen at this point of time. 7th Grade it's a marathon not a sprint to the finish. Keeping all of the athletes healthy, interested not burnt out has to be considered in picking the right team.

What are you talking about the top teams are stacked with kids that are multi sport star athletes.

A lot of the top 21 elevate girls did not return and were not at tryouts. Going to be tough for them to be close to competing with YJ and TG. Not sure where they all went.

Competing with YJ 2021 and TG 2021 are two completely separate things. We've played both and one is a top team, the other not so much.

Not true. I believe that TG does not release rosters until late October / early November the earliest. I thought they were released in April last year. I don't even know why they do it. Not many clubs do.

They were never close to competing with YJ, and TG never close to competing with Elevate. What was a A,B,C distinction now may have become A,C,C.

If I lived on Long Island the choice would be simple. One club continually is among the top 2-3 clubs and is always competitive when traveling down here. It's really rather simple. You get better playing with and against the best.

Yes, YG is the top LI club. But what if your daughter is on the B, C, D, E or F team? And . . . the B team is better than most. The choice is . . . do you want your daughter to play or simply be on the best team? Being on the best team doesn't necessarily make your daughter better, especially if she isn't playing.

Some other LI organizations have top teams at various age levels - some that can compete - not necessarily win vs YG, and some really poor teams at other age levels. Find a good coach - who knows the players and stays with the team year after year, and a good core group of girls that stay together, and that team will compete with most top teams. Keeping 20 girls on a roster should be able to offset the 4 or 5 that leave each year.

Igloo offers a lot of training but looks like they got greedy with the price tag and scared a lot of people away. $2,100 to play in only local tournaments is a complete money grab. Would have been curious to see how many girls moved to Igloo if it was more reasonably priced.

Right now they don't have enough to field a roster. Less than half team signed up so it will likely be a combo team. Last year was not a YJ team, it was just a mix of girls from various clubs/ teams.

We chose igloo because of the coach and the training. Other teams are less expensive but once you factor in the additional payments for winter training and in the case of elevate having to buy a uniform??? It is very comparable. Igloo believes that more training and playing local tournaments is the way to go. Why drive up and down the turnpike to beat lesser talent and then play a LI team in the finals? And then add the additional cost of travel, hotels, food and we are saving a ton of dough. Legacy is also staying home for there tournaments. It seems that the times are changing. There are enough good teams on LI now that teams don't have to travel as much until you reach recruiting age. I know we might not face M&D but maybe they see the trend and come to LI for a change.

We received the following email today. Now not even M&D can get two full rosters. Lots of options out there people.

M&D Girls Lacrosse Club is looking for a few more middle school players to round out a few roster spots.

Looking for the following:
- 5 field players and a goalie for the 2021 Red team
- 4 field players for the 2022 Red team

Any interested player can contact the head coaches for a try-out and evaluation.
- M&D 21 Red - Natalie Gaieski
- M&D 22 Red - Rachel Mercier

There are no good tournaments on the Island, period. Especially if your on a top team. This is why the top teams have to travel to play other top teams. The elite teams from the other states certainly do not come to long island tournaments to play, so the one or two top teams from LI must travel off island to play them. If igloo traveled off, would they even be in the top brackets to ever play the elite teams? Not likely, so staying on the island for most all other LI teams and clubs may be an attractive option.

So this is how Igloo is trying to spin this. Or is it they could not get into the best tournaments like what happened on the boys side? Isn't that real reason there oldest team folded?

I saw a Maryland club team come up to LI last summer. They were not M&D, thankfully. It was Hero's and they rolled over everyone they played during that weekend at Hofstra in the 2019 division. Frankly, if I were them, I would not come back for that. It's a lot cheaper for them to go to Jersey and at least have some tighter games. Regarding, waiting until recruiting age, when do you think that would be? I saw tons of coaches watching the 2019's play at Lax For The Cure last summer.

Saw 1 from 2nd and 2 red shirts. Blue team appears to stay intact
Also sounds like 2nd team getting AB as coach and that will be a big plus to this team.
Looked like numbers were up over last year whether they have enough accepted to form a 4th team reamians to be seen.

this is a joke right? Next we will hear they have a unique training program of wax on wax off, paint the fence and sand the floor!

There were 4 players new to blue. Staying in tact would mean a roster of 29.

Two red shirts and 2 from Yellow. Two returning players were missing, one may have left. So lets say maybe 3 adds. That's still too many to carry but we'll just have to wait until December to see.

What's your opinion on fall tournaments at this age? Is it just about keeping a stick in their hand?
Do you feel any pressure from the club to participant?

YJ tournament is the worst on the island 25 minute games no playoffs and everyone pays $10 at the gate. No thanks.


New to Elevate 2021, was told at tryouts by the club that they compete with the best teams in this age group.

Elevate has become less competitive each year they have played. With the departure of a number of players this trend should continue.

Depending on the margin of loss and as long as they are not getting blown out then I would much rather have my daughter compete at the highest level. Much better than playing no name second tier teams and crushing them. Elevate seems to be the only LI team to enter the same tournys as YJ's.

I completely agree. It was a joke. Although I don't think Elevate has played M&D any more than TG has. Think it is only once each.
and you get to have Dave K. jump in and coach the teams during the tournament....all good!
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2021-7th Grade Fall 2015 Summer 2016 - 10/26/15 03:43 PM
Not an Elevate parent but believe me we have had our share of crappy coaching!
Would have been thrilled to have the club director jump in and help.
High School girls and college players don't always translate to good coaches especially when they don't get any mentoring.

I would have DK coaching my daughter any day of the week. Any parent that says other wise knows nothing about the game. And they did not lose all their games playing in top seeded brackets. Yeah sorry didn't win a t-shirt big deal. I'm not one of those parents that has to win every game to feel good. As long as my daughter is getting better and enjoys her team it's all good right?

M&D beat whatever version that was of YJ 2021 14-6. Unfortunately, neither M&D nor YJ played Heros who was probably the other top team there. M&D and YJ both beat TLC rather easily.

That version was about a 1/3 of the top team with nearly no midfielders going and pickup players filling out the roster. Not everyone is into driving 5 1/2 hours and staying in hotels for a poor, off season tournament. At least it is in the MD teams backyard, probably get a much better turnout.

Easy man. There was no chest pounding. Said it wasn't the full team. Completely understand not wanting to drive down. Why does CR run a tournament in MD every fall?

I saw Hero's play on Sunday and I saw M&D play too. Hero's was CLEARLY the best 2031 team there. They would've crused M&D. BTW..my daughter doesn't play for either team. She is an assistant coach for another club team. Just my educated observation.

Have no idea what rosters looked like for this fall tournament. Played both of these teams true summer strength, both teams very good. Definitely give an edge to M&D.

2031? Heros and M&D sure start them young. But I suggest before making snap judgements we wait until they can play pacifier-free...it changes everything.

You do realize Heros played a bunch of B teams on Sunday right and only beat one of them by a goal. Meanwhile M&D won 20-1, 14-4, 14-6 over YJ and 10-4 over TLC. And M&D was making full team substitutions every 6 minutes.

M&D and Heros play Saturday so we'll see.

I would definitely give the advantage to M&D since Heros has never beaten them and most of the games were not even close.

It would appear that M&D will have the deepest team this year. They will have the ability to sub and have absolutely no drop off in play , something no other team can say even YJ 2021 Blue.

This could be, but very interested to see the Heros team. They seem to be extremely confident after their influx of girls from Bitmore. Looking forward to Saturday's matchup.

There are times and there are situations in games when what may seem like screaming is really just a coach trying to make sure that the furthest player hears them. And of course in the noise and din of a lacrosse game - those situations arise all the time.
Maybe that is the only way the Heros coaches can be sure they are heard over the parents coaching from the sidelines.

Yes, you beat M&D last year when they were missing three starters. By a goal. And there was plenty of talking by YJ parents after that game.

The girls lost just as many as they won against M&D, but they have fun as a team. Frankly, their best win last year was the talent show at Towson Camp.

It would appear that M&D will have the deepest team this year. They will have the ability to sub and have absolutely no drop off in play , something no other team can say even YJ 2021 Blue.

YJ faithful, love that everyone is quite on these matters, let's continue to keep it above the line and let the girls do the talking like they did last year.

Yes, you beat M&D last year when they were missing three starters. By a goal. And there was plenty of talking by YJ parents after that game.

Well with all the new depth being talked about in prior posts, perhaps you can leave that excuse home this summer. All teams deal with injuries and conflicts. Assuming they also missed the braveheart loss at Towson as well as the tie in Ocean City. With the starters, you only managed wins by 2 and 1 goal respectively. Way to discount all the other players on your team, I am sure they appreciate knowing they cannot win without your superstars.

Have no idea what rosters looked like for this fall tournament. Played both of these teams true summer strength, both teams very good. Definitely give an edge to M&D.

I don't know who said anything about the depth, but it wasn't an M&D parent obviously. It was a YJ parent that said the girls did the talking on the field last year. And they did plenty of it after the Lax for the Cure game as they walked past the M&D girls. No one said anything about superstars being missing. Missing 3 girls hurts anyone's depth. They were all great games last summer. Point was, If you want to count the game at camp, the teams were 2-2-1 last summer. No one cam claim that their girls did their talking on the field. They were obviously two evenly matched teams.

Go back and read the posts, M&D will not lose a game this fall, spring or summer, we added 7 new players and have more depth than YJ, you only beat us by 1 because we were missing players. There was not one YJ post before all that started. I will bail out now, you need to read a bit more before posting.

I guarantee you whoever said that M&D won't lose a game is not an M&D parent. No one would ever say that. Someone is stirring the pot. The person that said that M&D had the best depth is not an M&D parent either.

The response about only winning by one goal was in response to the "the girls did their talking on the field" post.

Nothing but respect for YJ. They are the only one's that consistently give us a game.

Parents from M&D and YJs are reacting to posts that are 99% likely made by people not even on either team. People on here will bait you into smack talk. People intimately involved know the deal between these two team and respect the players and parents. If you follow the posts you will see the posters only know and reference small bits of incomplete info or history picked from prior posts. Refrain from reacting

I am an M&D parent. YJ 2021 is a class outfit. Girls on the team are tough, competitive and play to the whistle. Parents are loud and proud (they're from Long Island, what do you expect?) but they are also a very good group of parents and I know they respect our girls as well.

We look forward to playing against Yellow Jackets. They are great competition.

There is no way they were talking smack after the game as half the girls could not talk because they were crying ,not playing even for 1 second while those related to the coach never came off the field. Difficult to say how deep the YJ team is when half the kids do not play in a meaningful game.

You make statements like this because it makes you feel better and you even try to convince others that you are way better off on the second or third team because of all the drama and the crazy parents?

I am certain there is a lot of spit stirring going on as the parents have had very frank conversations and both teams shorten up their benches for their games against each other. No story here other than someone trying to ruin a nice friendship between 2 very good teams. Don't get suckered in by outsiders.

The best part about this is that all but one girl from last year is looking to return to the team, If they were that upset or slighted, why would they come back? Answer, everyone gets plenty of time across the totality of games and the club has set these expectations in tight games for two years now. Time to move on from this one.....

Why are you people even trying to compare teams in fall ball? Many of the best athletes are off with other commitments to soccer, field hockey, life or just off season downtime.

Nah, heros white coach spends way too much actually coaching and not nearly enough time screaming at the girls like those awesome heros green coaches!

Guess maybe you Should retire from evaluating girls lacrosse teams. Maybe you should have realized that Heros was playing a bunch of B teams last week. [/quot

Checkhers Black and Integrity are not B teams. M&D played a true group of B's. Lakeshore? NXT? TLC? I'm not sure which one of the 18 2021 YJ teams they played. And, I've been involved with lax for a long time time. What I saw was a Hero's team that would beat M&D.


I'll assume you are trolling since M&D beat Heros rather easily on Saturday. And both teams were at full strength. If you think Checkhers is an A team, you are proving my point. They lost to Heros White and Rebels.

Have YJ and Heros played other than Lax for the Cure last summer? YJ won that game 10-7.

Having played both teams several times, YJ is a far better team than Heros.

Whatever. This is the 2021 thread. Has any Heros team ever beaten M&D Black or YJ Blue? Congratulations. Your White team is the top B team.

Here is another example of people reacting to someone with obviously little or no direct information. This is not a Hero's person making noise, it is someone who does not know the history of games and results with Hero's and the other teams or they would not be on here making claims. People love to start trouble for the top teams, and this is starting trouble for Hero's.

that heros team has only practice together for a little. As lacrosse teams go's they will get better when they's play as a team. Weather we see it this next tournament or after, they're playing will get better when there play's as a team. The heros team has very good goalies and that is what will make them bettre than Mnd and JY. There fist goalie has to get use to a new coach but will soon doing better.

Trying to translate this.
Kids need to practice together to jell, makes sense.
Same coach but among the new additions is another goalie?
Once that goalie learns the coaches defensive schema the whole team becomes better then YJ and M&D?
The new goalie is better then the old goalie and better them YJs or M&Ds goalies?

Good job was trying to make sense of that post as well, hopefully written by a Heros player and not a parent
Either way should be an exciting summer season. I'm sure there will be some new player additions to both YJ and M&D and betting both teams will only be stronger.

LOL. Thanks for the translation. YJ has a fantastic goalie and M&D added a great goalie this season. Should be fun. maybe Heros can actually beat one of the two this year.

Apparently someone does not understand all the dynamics involve around the crease. A so-so goalie can look really good if the defenders are giving her the shots that she wants. But, if the defense is just letting shooters waltz in then she has no chance. Overall - there are 11 bodies in front of that goalie. Let's see how they step up.

Obviously, there is a troll on here spouting off about Heros 2021. We have seen things like Heros will crush M&D this year. Heros will be impossible to beat with the new girls from Bitmore. Even after M&D easily beat Heros last week they were still on here posting Heros was better than M&D.

You are all feeding into this nonsense by even responding to them. If Heros beats M&D or YJ then there can be a discussion. Until then, it's all noise.

It's no surprise to see that particular team spouting nonsense. From the highest level of professional athletics to the darkest corners of youth club sports, teams (and their parents) take on the identity of their coaches.

Not at all. My daughter's team has never lost to them, so I would have expected that I would have noticed it. There are far more obnoxious coaches out there than Heros. Pure Lacrosse being the top of the heap in that regard. Have seen Integrity's coach go crazy as well.

Honestly I have never noticed this from Heros. Maybe someone has an ax to grind?

Heros and mnd Sunday. Both teams practiced this week on the same field. Good to see the girls all together. Maybe heros has a chance w a good second half last week against them. Mnd still the team to beat at this age group. Nothing more fun then seeing all these girls compete at the very highest level.

My point exactly! You cannot avoid it and with the defense also yelling and calling, "bawl, bawl" constantly - one does need to scream at the top of their lungs to provide precise instructions on offensive sets, formations and options to the players. Plus, if a player messes up - you need to correct it immediately. It's just not prudent to wait for that player to come back to the bench and instruct them there. And for some of those players - that may end being at half-time. If the girls cannot handle the yelling then they should not have signed on - it will only get worse. In fact, I think the Hero's coaches are pretty well modeling themselves after another successful program and coach out there with a proven track record. I see nothing wrong with emulating Mike McLaughlin - he has produced outstanding talent.

As a coach, you do not yell out loud to a player on the field and tell her she "messed up". You are then making an example out of her to the entire team and people on the sideline. when these players get to the recruitment age, do you really want to yell out that they messed up in front of a sideline of college coaches?
You wait for an opportunity to sub for her and explain to her what she needs to do to correct her mistake. If you constantly yell at players for making mistakes then they will not take risks on the field for fear of being "singled out". Coaching 101.

Just because you are yelling to a player doesn't mean you are yelling at a player. You can yell to let a player know " That's exactly how I want it done " " Double ball now" Some adjustments need to be done on the fly ,remember there are no timeouts

You wait for an opportunity to sub for her and explain to her what she needs to do to correct her mistake. If you constantly yell at players for making mistakes then they will not take risks on the field for fear of being "singled out". Coaching 101.


Just because you are yelling to a player doesn't mean you are yelling at a player. You can yell to let a player know " That's exactly how I want it done " " Double ball now" Some adjustments need to be done on the fly ,remember there are no timeouts


Good point. These are 12 year old girls. They don't know the game well enough to just go out there and play. They need to be instructed throughout the game or they will not ever progress and grow.

Was not a sharp day for M&D. Couldn't win a draw all day. Stars was winning over M&D 9-5 with 10 mins left. M&D scored last 5 goals to win 10-9. Scored 10 goals on 10 shots. They will always get everyone's best effort. It will be hard to win every game if they can't win draws.

Speaking of insane coaches, on Sunday I heard a Skywalkers Blue coach (the old guy that just sits down on a chair and yells) tell one of his "assistants" to "Tell her to come here right now and bring me a beer!" He was YELLING! What kind of "coach" says that? To 7th graders? Girls? Insane is all I can say.

I would have asked for something stiffer if I were MM. Maybe the heros coaches should have a drink and chill.

We have all seen parent on side line with red solo
Cups and that shouldn't be tolerated at a youth event but for a coach
He should have been removed from fields for the rest of the day
As coach you are teaching more than a role dodge or how to control the draw
Classless act in my opinion
If this is a on going situation then perhaps organization needs to replace him
Save ur beers for after the game. When your home your home you old drunk
Probably sits in the chair because he has knocked back to many to stand

Well said. There are plenty of things that should not be tolerated on the sidelines of youth events. The red cups could be the start - but, lets keep going with the classless stuff. Anyone else want to chime in?

After I heard him say it, I looked over and one of his "assistants" gave him the "be quiet" sound. He tried to laugh it off, but he was busted. I don't know how good of a coach he is, but he sure can yell. He was definitely trying to be "smooth" like a used car salesman.

Did he actually have a red solo cup on the sideline? Or is he being crucified for making an off-hand comment about needing a drink after watching how badly his team was playing? Are we to the point now that the thought police will be patrolling the sidelines? If that is the case - then they will have their hands full. My other question is - why were there so many parents near the benches?
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2021-7th Grade Fall 2015 Summer 2016 - 11/12/15 03:10 PM
No, he did not have a red solo cup that I saw. To me, his comment was not intended literally, but it was (in my opinion) way out of line. He seemed to be quick to call girls over to the sidelines where he was sitting to explain to them what he saw that they had done "wrong". Like I said earlier, he seemed to be trying to be very "smooth", kind of like a used car salesman. He made a couple of other comments that weren't as odd, but they did catch me off-guard and I heard his assistant to tell him to shush, or quiet down. And no, no thought police here. But, as a coach, you should hold yourself to a high standard and I think he came up short. Just coach and leave the smarmy comments for later.

Are we still talking about the Skywalkers coach? Just want to make sure - for future reference. I do know that it is definitely none of the heros green coaches - he called them over to the sidelines to make corrections and did not yell it out for all to hear. And mnd has a woman coaching - definitely not her. This is all great stuff.

Can you really add this team to the conversation along with M&D and YJ blue? The only reason YJ and MnD are in a comparison is because each team has never lost a game to any other team except each other.

Sounds like a valid argument on both sides. But, in a top 3 discussion - which seems to be the norm here - who? Definitely not Sky Walkers, TCL Red could be valid, Heros has whithered under the bright lights. Besides, it would be nice to have an upstate NY team to talk about instead of just MD and LI.

TLC Red went 0-4 at Mid-Atlantic this weekend, so you can scratch them from the list.

While a top 3 discussion may be the norm here, it is quite apparent that at this point in the 2021 age, there are 2 teams that are heads and shoulders above everyone else. While they may run into so close games, until someone beats M&D or YJ, that's the way it is. It really doesn't matter who is #3 if no one can beat #1 and #2.

While Monster had some good players, not sure you can put them or any one else for that matter in the discussion with M&D and YJ when talking about the top 2021 teams. I would think that the Monster parents would agree that there was quite a difference between the two teams yesterday.

Okay, I am seeing tons off "troll" references on various threads. Used to be used as a verb, like trolling for fish, set the bait out and wait for someone or something to bite at it. Now people are using it as a noun, calling people a troll like the quizzical creatures that live under the bridges. Maybe we have a combination of both?

I think the quiet time will end when the last club rosters are announced. That usually gets people fired up.

Who gets fired up about the "last club" rosters? It will probably start with the first club rosters - more specifically the exclusions.

So true, especially 7/8th grade is when we typically see most movement on top teams

If you were planning on being on this clubs top team and you aren't placed there you are out of options because all of the other clubs have had tryouts already. This can cause problems.

No doubt there will be some movement on top team but reality is those players will still be better off on 2nd YJ team then any other club once parents players get past their bruised ego. Let's say 4-6 move down, those are solid players that will now become major contributors. Gap now closes between 1st and 2nd team plus with Bert now coaching solves last years biggest gripe. Look at 2020 last year, both very solid competive teams and probably best two teams on LI. Now moving from 2nd to 3 team not so good and might be time to re-evaluate. No chest pounding but quality of YJ second teams to other clubs 2 and some top teams is night and day especially as girls get older.

Take TG's out of the equation and take WBab out of the equation. These clubs are supposed to be drawing girls from all over the island to put together the top team. This happens with other clubs too, you get a townie coach or worse a townie parent coach and this stuff happens. In this case you have a townie club director. Any school district is lucky to have one top kid on a top team, really lucky if maybe two or three can play at that level. 7-8? But competitively, this really isn't a top team. Don't know these girls so maybe they truly do belong, but the lopsided numbers screams politics. This could be a sign of TG's dwindling ability to draw in talent from an array of districts.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2021-7th Grade Fall 2015 Summer 2016 - 11/27/15 03:18 PM
I don't think the townie travel team is always a bad thing. When you have 22-25 girls on a roster, it is hard to fill in bottom spots with talent from other towns. Girls still want to play with a few of their friends for the most part, so there are groups of girls from the same town on many travel teams, not just TG. This is not a problem, but could be when one of the friends doesn't make a top team or decides to move to another team. In that case, girls can leave in great numbers, or parents have a big decision to make to keep their daughter with their friends on the new team, or stay on previous team without their friends. Travel is about lacrosse, and not about town friends, so I agree there. In many cases, car pooling is an issue you get when you have many girls from one town. Not many parents have the time available to give up 3 hours driving and staying at practices without a carpool, or without living in close proximity to the club where they aren't forced to stay in situations where they have other children or responsibilities to tend to.

More or less TG alienating girls from other districts and shrinking their pool. This has driven many girls away.

The YJ will have you sign in to access rosters

Elevate will email you the roster

TG doesn't allow you to access the rosters nor do they email you the roster. When you accept a position for your daughter you are blindly accepting not knowing who else is on the roster and you won't find out until spring practice.

Do you think that girls don't text each other? Roster spots were known right after emails were sent when girls communicated. TG girls play with each other outside of club, but also played at Hofstra 7v7 in October.

If YJ aren't posting their rosters which they always have done It just goes to show how super competitive the whole club and parent scene is. Everyone trying to hide names, teams and roster numbers.

YJ's are down in enrollment and so are a lot of other clubs. It was going straight up for a while and it seems like a lot of players on 2nd and 3rd teams elsewhere and 4th, 5th and 6th teams with YJ's are really questioning whether all this money and time is really worth it or are they just making these rich directors richer?

Your whole argument is based on generalized assumptions and sounds like you're trying to stir the pot. Reread the last few pages, YJ rosters will be posted on the 6th.

Trust me it is not the money, it is the cesspool that has become club lacrosse. Many former players are happy to have their kids playing the game and enjoying themselves on town teams.

It's strange, because college coaches generally don't care/watch high school games. Should be a place where teamwork and spirit thrives?

Because unlike club where the only people that care or pay attention are the 25 parents on the team. Scoring on the school team gets your name in the paper! So the selfish game becomes more selfish. When teams are winning big try passing the ball that would be a great first step in correcting

You would think so, but I guess the girls can't turn it on and off when they go between club and HS. Sad.

Well, maybe the "town teams" on Long Island or upstate are better. But, the politics and cronyism have taken over the local or rec programs throughout parts of Maryland. That is probably one of the main reasons why a club spring league has flourished. The local PTA cliques have taken over the town teams or MYLA rec programs.

Yrs, every team has several players that were moved down and sad or upset players and parents. But every team also has new players who were brought up or on the team who are happy and thrilled, this is how it works.

So this is what the site is about? Calling people jerk off? Nice parenting. I think the monitors of this site a jerk offs for letting you post.

you seem a little too invested in this, don't you think? Why don't you post your name dingleberry? Then we can laugh at what a jerk off you are ... No doubt everyone knows it already ...

So this is what the site is about? Calling people jerk off? Nice parenting. I think the monitors of this site a jerk offs for letting you post.


Hey, loser.. Call me a jerk off with your name attached and then and ONLY then will it "maybe" mean something. You can seriously kiss my [lacrosse]!!!

I see. This site is for anonymously calling out a 12 year old girl who likely is bummed out right now based on what you are suggesting. And you seem to be taking great joy in it. Which is about as pathetic an act as I have seen on this board. So own up to it and stick your name on the comment. Like I said, my guess is that most of the people involved with your club know who you are anyway and likely want you somewhere else other than their sideline.

Unfortunately we all have these jerks on the sidelines regardless of town or club affiliation but I would really like to think it was not directed at a 12yr old. Reality is every year kids move up, move down or move clubs and they will all be fine. But for a parent to take pleasure and make a public comment is troublesome and you are most likely dealing with other inadequacy issues! Remember OP what goes around comes around.

It's the same crap everywhere. Everytme, everyone is leaving after rosters are posted... Top Guns will probably take anyone who wants to leave, the are pretty depleted over there and they will throw anyone from a YJ team onto the Purple without a tryout. They did it last year.

Doesn't really speak well for the other clubs does it? Making room on their top teams at this late date should make you question why, especially if they never saw your kid play? Club directors must be really desperate especially to risk ticking off their existing players/parents who legitimately attended tryouts and wanted to be there in the first place. Good luck to all

It's never a pleasant experience getting cut from any club. Keep in mind we are talking about 12 year old girls. Here's wishing them all good luck ! smile

Will there be any challengers to M&D and YJ ? Did any of the top 2 teams pick up players who will actually play when the top teams meet or did they pick up players who will get their minutes in blowouts?

Heard a ton of chirping on here all last year how elevate was poised to step up last summer and be a top contender. They actually took a step backwards last year and look to be taking another step back for this coming year.

If Elevates top players are now playing for Igloo; as with any team losing their top players they are sure to struggle and not compete.

Remember folks lacrosse is a team sport. Sometimes you do have strong players on a team but if they don't pass and play a team game it's a losing cause.

Stop. The Elevate 2021 Team was blown out by M&D and YJ and lost to TG last summer. They lost their top players to Igloo. This Elevate team will have their hands full with teams like Legacy and Icon. My guess is you wont even see them in the same brackets as they played in the last 2 years. Elevate has taken a big step back.

Heard this club is a mess and can't even fill 2nd teams? Has the age group been competitive in prior years? Even Liberty beat them at their own tourny last summer and that's not saying much!

The saying goes " great players don't necessarily make great coaches". Does being the father or brother of a great player make you a great coach?

Listen, no one is a God on this site.. Elevate isn't a sponsor. I don't know him nor do I have an allegiance to him. I have said this before. This thread has the absolute worst case of stalking ever.

It just makes me laugh that this lone turkey comes in to snipe every day.. It is really sad that he is so obsessed with ANY person no matter what his name is..

Not taking any sides but not sure I'm buying this? You had a choice to make after tryouts to either accept or decline your position. He didn't "make you pay" you wrote the check. Sounds like there's two sides to this story.

The problem with these forums is you only seem to get really happy drinking the kool-aid folks or the really disgruntled ones who come on here and love to bash. There's been a lot of good information shared on this site and a lot of BS too.

I think what was meant was that they have made several payments adding up to a large sum of money and now that they have played in a few tournaments and maybe had a few practices they are regretful. It's not a good feeling when you pay a lot of money for a product that doesn't live up to your expectations.

Elevate has changed a lot in one year. They seem more desperate than ever for money. A lot of kids on my daughters team left during the fall. People seem very unhappy and I think they are doing what they can to hold it together. This will be our last year at Elevate as well but at this point I am just hoping they survive until the summer!

Not sure how one would infer that but if more people would post like you instead of, he made me pay or else, they would be more credible and helpful for others in making an informed decision.

If you pay the full fee in the fall for elevate, that's the charge. If you choose to lay in installments, you are charged interest/service fee, whatever you want to call it. So if you can't hand over the full amount when accepting your daughters position, you
pay extra in addition to the regular fee.

Elevate has changed a lot since last year. The club had multiple sessions for testing at the Hub in Syosett last year. They have nothing this year. nothing. Why? No one knows. No reason given. Anyone know why? Seems very odd. Quality girls left the program for a start up program at Igloo. Def step backward.

The bottom line is that you now have (2) teams that will not compete at the upper level of play. Say what you want but Elevate could at least give you a game in the past. Sorry to say it but both Elevate and Igloo will struggle if they happen to enter into the top brackets at tournaments. If your daughter wants to be challenged you really only have one choice to play top flight competition. It's a shame but that is the reality of this age group on LI.

Not a coincidence at all. I believe the way Elevate does business has caught up with them and everyone in the lacrosse copmmunity is aware of it. I see other girls teams playig at the HUB all the time (eg. Liberty) but have never seen Elevate there this year. Coincidence...... I think not. Karma....more likely.

Elevate picked up some unhappy girls and will be fine. The igloo girls will be disenchanted and go next year. It's the way it rolls.

Was the team really in that bad a shape that it needed a bunch of unhappy girls? If the prior bunch of top players left what has changed? Never a good sign when top players walk away from the A team and not talking about disgruntled players moving down.

When you say unhappy don't you really mean they were cut from the team they were on. Lots of luck with that bunch!

There is a difference between posting rosters and making proposed rosters available for invited people to see. The rosters are the clubs and players business, no need to publicly post them. But proposed rosters should certainly be available to players making a decision to take a roster spot for a multitude of reasons. Did they make the right choices of players moving up, down, coming ,going. Did they get rid of the loud mouth parents that know one wants to stand next to on the sidelines. Is the politically placed kids situation getting worse or better, etc.... I find YJs choice to only show invited players the roster interesting, I know so many players who were scared to even try out because they posted every name who tried out and put them in an awkward situation if they went back to club they were trying to leave. I think you will see a huge surge in talent trying out next year because they can do it anonymously, with no repercussions of going back to their original club if it doesn't work out.

TG is not the club it used to be and they are hurting like a bunch of other clubs. Clubs are struggling to fill rosters. Several years back they were the closest competition to YJ but the top girls have left and now the B team has become the A team and people get all defensive. The reason why so many jumped to a startup like Igloo is because they have become disillusioned and not just a TG thing. Will Igloo be successful who knows.

I don't buy they were scared to tryout. Whether or not the roster is made public everyone knows who went to the tryout and everybody's standing around talking about other kids. Probably more like scared of not making the top team and where they would be placed but that doesn't sound as good.

BS has seen many of his best girls leave his club, and many driven away due to the frustration of better players having to play with lesser players from towns he favors, sick of seeing superior teammates on purple teams while stuck playing with lesser players on Black teams. BS has also dropped the ball recently in the recruiting department, many older girls 2018 especially had jumped ship, and that one hurt him as those were his better players, but in 8 weeks with YJ those girls have had 5x the college contacts that they have had with BS. When you have quality 2017's leaving too, then you know the ship is sinking.

So if he posted his roster it would be very embarrassing for him, SS and the club. It probably would lead to other departures especially now programs are popping up in their area and drawing upon their pool And the cThat speak volumes when older girls leave your Black team and take a spot on another programs 2nd team. The silence from the TG camp is deafening.

You keep posting this, but that doesn't make it true. MD United East got blown out every time they played M&D in 2015. And now their goalie moved to M&D. Last time the teams played, M&D won 17-4 in spring championships. I don't think that they played last summer as MD United usually chooses to play in lesser tournaments or is not in the top bracket when they are at the same place.

As a member of a TG family, you are totally wrong. Most girls have no idea who will be on their team. If the Sunday morning practices are any indication, TG is still looking for players. Very few girls at every age group are showing up for practices.

Elevate picks up the unhappy YJ leftovers every year. Good players that will get them through one more year but long term this team cannot thrive this way.

It's right in the middle of basketball season and volley ball season . . . it is not lacrosse season. Many girls play basketball, which is why winter lax league teams have sketchy attendance, and girls don't attend lax winter clinics. The girls knew who made each team right after tryouts because the girls text each other right after roster emails are sent out. The only girls who might not know their teammates are the new girls.

Yup, girls don't show up to weekend lax practice because of middle school basketball and volley ball.

Saw them play this fall. Goalie/defense is a strength, nice transition game. The only possible dent in the armor I saw was on the offensive end. At times they turned the ball over running into double teams rather than dishing it off. They'll get it fixed...

Actually MD beat YJ twice and they lost to YJ three times and tied once last year if you want to be accurate. Our greatest competition by far is MD. look forward to every game. This year should be just as competitive, Our tournament schedule came out today, we will see them 3 times this year we hope, But we are not doing the Towson camp again and not going to Ocean City either. Too far for 20 minute games I am assuming.

Pretty sure that M&D lost in the summer of 2015. And more than once.


Pretty sure you are wrong. M&D lost one game to YJ by one goal at Lax for the Cure. That's it. Won every other tournament they played in as well as the MD Club spring league.


Actually MD beat YJ twice and they lost to YJ three times and tied once last year if you want to be accurate. Our greatest competition by far is MD. look forward to every game. This year should be just as competitive, Our tournament schedule came out today, we will see them 3 times this year we hope, But we are not doing the Towson camp again and not going to Ocean City either. Too far for 20 minute games I am assuming.


I do want to be accurate. M&D won every tournament that they played in other than Lax for the Cure. They lost to YJ there by a goal. What were the other 2 wins you are claiming this year? I assume you are counting the game at camp that was not attended by all players and where the teams weren't coached by their own coaches? If you want to claim that one ok, but what was the third one? M&D could count the win at Young Guns this fall where they blew out YJ but that would be unfair. Just curious where you are coming up with 3 wins over M&D this year.

Yeah agree with you, don't know where the third win came from either???? At the end of the day, these teams only played each other in two tournaments that had their respective club send them to, all others were optional showings. Split the summer tournaments 1-1.
I made a post that wasn't meant to set off a YJ vs MD argument, was more interested in the MD united claims of having beat m&d black, which I now believe is put to rest.

No argument at all, by far best 2 teams out there. MD & YJ. First game we played you beat us by 2, then beat us by 1, then we tied, then we beat you buy 1, then we beat you by 2, then we beat you by a brave heart at camp which you can count or not, doesn't matter either way. Absolutely love playing you guys, win or lose!!! Beats blowing teams out by 15 goals anyday!!!
They made some changes to us this year, dropped 4 girls and one girl moved to another club because of the travel, family was spread out too thin and they wanted to be together more. They added 5 girls which will improve us. I'm sure you guys made changes also. Good luck!!

I think people are confused by when you beat M&D by 2. Where was that? I'm getting old, but I certainly don't recall that game. The braveheart was at camp in Towson. The 1 goal win by YJ was at Lax for the Cure. Where did YJ beat M&D by 2?

what the [lacrosse] are you talking about? No one is living through their 12 year old. It's an honest question on when YJ beat M&D by 2.

I guess M&D has their share of crazies too! Who really cares about last summer when these girls were 11? Are these really the two best teams in the entire 2021 universe? Kinda sounds like it..

Which team are you referring to when you they turn the ball over running into double teams? YJ have a good number who never give up the ball.

What are you putting to rest? MD United beat M&D, not sure what you are putting to rest? Also have you checked the MD Brine roster?? MD United has more girls on the Brine than M&D, so that must mean something.

Most likely someone affiliated with MD United was part of the selection process for Brine (a total money grab) or M&D chose not to participate in such a lackluster tournament. The talent level of these two teams is not really comparable.

M&D black had the tendency to turn it over. Top level team with girls that are encouraged to go to goal rather than distribute ball in order to pad numbers. Not uncommon with these teams...

You have just described 95% of youth lacrosse! It's taught at a young age when girls are encouraged to run down the middle and shoot every time. Even with the three pass rule in PAL you hear them yelling pass back to me.

The best is when a girl will run them entire field without passing, gets triple teamed and still try's to shoot and the ball dribbles out.

I've seen that everywhere from PAL to club to HS and it never fails to annoy. Side eye to all the number-runners.

Where these rosters posted? I am assuming that most of the M&D girls did not bother going to the tryouts this fall. First off, the Brine team is a bit of a joke, and secondly, there is another tryout in Baltimore in the Spring. If they are trying out, why would they drive down there?

Have you ever actually watched them play? The girls are never encouraged to go to goal. The reason they are successful is that they move the ball so well for their age as well as their communication on defense.

Well the "Best" club seems to have girl’s tryout for Brine. Neither M&D nor United travel to second and third tier tournaments and tout themselves as champs of the world when really they are afraid of M&D and YJ

As for the money grab, it is whatever. Girls get to play more, play more with different input. I tend to think it is more about Brand loyalty than the money. The real money is made by the Tournaments and “whoever” is running them. Maybe the “whoever’s” are the one’s calling it a money grab because they are afraid of losing their own money grab. If you are kept in the dark about your options, the “whoever’s” get to keep you drinking their kool-aid and your cash as well.

Md United's directors are the type that push their players to tryout for EVERY team, in the hopes that some of them make at least one team. Then, when a few of them make a team like the Brine ones they boast about it like they just won the national championship. The director has zero coaching resume'. Her daughter was a good player, but that by itself doesn't make mommy a good coach. Md United is ran by a person who is business-minded, not lacrosse-minded. Lots of hype, no substance. When they first showed up a few years ago, she was able to poach some good players from good teams by telling them she was a lacrosse God. Now though, the word is out. Just another club lax team. Meh.

2nd team looks strong with some nice additions and will be very competitive this summer.

MD United coach was an evaluator for the Brine selection process. All MD United kids that tried out made the team. Probably just a coincidence.
Didn't Stars beat YJ at that tournament in NJ at Rider College? or was that 2020?

Not sure what you mean by lots but this team will be equal or better than any other A team on LI. I would also bet the girls that left will be back at tryouts after this summer season.

Less players but more impressive group I feel.
But again, where are the rest of the players?
Is Team A really paying/playing so Team B can go forth and prosper?

Intelligent thoughts with out attacks welcomed.
Whats the best road to travel? A Club that takes care of everyone or who only promotes and plays the top girls?

Let's all get it straight. NO 2021 team beat YJ last summer other than M+D. Now please
everyone get it right we don't need to staty this discussion again.


Good post from disgruntled former YJ parent trying to stir the pot! Good luck this summer with your new club


Heroes is going to be the best competition for you in DMV this year. We are looking forward to the summer tourneys.


That's funny. There are a couple things funny about this actually.

The first is that Hero's has never beaten M&D.

The second thing that is funny is the poster doesn't know how to spell Hero's!

I'm guess this is someone starting trouble because of this. I don't think any actual Hero's parent feels they have surpassed M&D.

That M&D list is not a complete list. And some of those girls are from the Red team. They are updating the website. Not sure why there are girls missing from there. They had taken commitments off the website and are in the process of adding them. In their history, usually about 100% of the Black team and about half of the Red team play in college.

Without even researching there are 2 MD commits missing on the M&D list and one from Hopkins missing also. A lot of the girls on the M&D list are Red players.

Not sure what your point was, but M&D is the best at getting girls from both teams to college.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2021-7th Grade Fall 2015 Summer 2016 - 01/22/16 07:36 PM
My point is funny guy, that M&D is not the best at getting them into college. Lets wait and see the final list. Can't just make blanket statements without the proof. M&D's recruits do not look that impressive for all the chest pounding- face it.
YJ's recruits blow them away in this area as well.

Any info on TLC's list?

I can't see how a coach, acting as an evaluator for a Brine team (or any select team for that matter such as Under Armour) could get away with stocking it with kids from their own club team without someone raising a stink about it. Could it be that the girls earned it based on the competition they were up against?

Or could it be that MD United Girls made up the vast majority of the girls trying out? The tryouts were at their fields.

No Baltimore area girls tried out. There are Baltimore tryouts in the Spring.

Who cares about Brine anyway? Does anyone still tryout for this?

Not sure what you mean by lots but this team will be equal or better than any other A team on LI. I would also bet the girls that left will be back at tryouts after this summer season.


4-5 girls left for another club but new girls on. Tjink Elevate A team will be better

M&D girls were given the most Brine spots - more than any Club. M&D had 4 evaluators on the field and an M&D Coach runs it. Must be just a coincidence.

You aren't talking about the 2021 age obviously. Why are you posting that here? What team had M&D evaluators?

Your list for 2016 Black does not include 7 D1 commits (MD, Florida, Hopkins, Penn State etc) and includes multiple talented players from the Red team.

Nice try though!

Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2021-7th Grade Fall 2015 Summer 2016 - 01/23/16 03:31 AM
First of all, it's not a contest. It doesn't matter who goes where, as long as the player and parents are happy with the destination. Second, I bet if you look at ANY club team's website and look at the alumni they would ALL look the same...D1, D2, D3.
Example 1:

Integrity: Small club.
Caitlin Blanche, Navy
Katie Cavanaugh, Belmont Abbey
Lexi Clark, Shenandoah
Hannah Coakley, Rollins College
Kali Ferguson, Mount Olive
Sarah Gillogly, Monmouth University
Skylar Grady, UMBC
Carson Gregg, University of Denver
Angelica Jensen, Hofstra
Jackie Kaderabek, Mount Olive
Mckensey Lavin, Shenandoah
Gina Openshaw, Brown University (Field Hockey)
Emily Nutter, Monmouth University
Lucy Sullivan, Salisbury
Madeline Szanyi, Hofstra University

Example 2:
Md United: Medium large club.
Payton Beach - Virginia Tech
Julianna Brown - George Mason
Sydney Davis - St. Francis
Abby Dengler - Grand Valley State
Meredith Dillon - Costal Carolina
Brianna Harris - Florida
Kayla Harris - US Naval Academy
Brittany Jacobs - Campbell
Chelsea Kibler - U Penn
Kayla Koch - Presbyterian College
Maddie McDaniel - James Madison
Laura Milleker - Denver
Abigail O’Neal - Grand Valley State
Emma Schwartz - George Mason
Skylar Simmers - Grand Valley State
Kasey Stevens - Jacksonville
Taylor Sullivan - San Diego State
Makenzie Aponte - Long Island U
Kendall Bannan - Salisbury
Molly Barkman - Longwood
Abby Bernhardt - Mary Washington
Jordan Conley - [lacrosse]
Brooke Dooley - Delaware
Emily D’Orsaneo - Loch Haven
Madeline Gonzalez - Central Michigan
Emma Hamilton - Central Michigan
Maddie La Clair - Towson
Brooke Malamphy - La Salle
Stephanie Miller - Monmouth
Kelly Sheilds - IUP
Abigail Single - Salisbury
Alexandra Wilder - Rollins University

I just don't see any real difference here. The destination of all the players on all the clubs runs the gamut in many parameters.

The Hub changed owners.


and what happened at Cold Spring Harbor, where Elevate had full run of facilities/...coincidence that Elevate loes both Hub AND CSH in same season?

Someone spent all last winter talking up 21 elevate, this past summer showed how far behind the top teams they actually are, some pretty bad blowouts. Sounds like gap will be even larger this summer, should probably start playing B brackets in tournaments.

Yeah I agree. It seems every time someone puts something about elevate 2021 it is followed by they lost their best players to another club.

Is your daughter getting better? Does she like her teammates? Is she having fun? Stop living through your kid. I have been there and done it. I played a sport in college.

Why would top A team girls go to a startup? Seems like a step back to me. We are kinda stuck where we are at, already paid 50% but looking for options for 2017. Considering TG or Elevate. Kid is a solid b-b+ player. Not Interested in YJ.

Any igloo folks out there care to comment on their thoughts so far?

you have 4 solid players from one club go to a startup. they are able to get 4 more good players they know from other clubs and then of the 20 others that show for tryout you pick up 10 B players your good. you are now a solid B team.

I think any program that primarily focuses on their boys program is going to be weaker with the girls side. Then again, you never know. I'm hoping that they do end up being successful. I am from a rival club, but I believe that the more the talent is spread out on LI, the better off every one will be. A lax monopoly like YJ does nothing from us except force our girls to have limited options and learning possibilities. No knock on YJ, just mentioning them because for a long time they were the place to be. They still have a great program, but now other teams are able to get better players who will start to compete with them. Just trying to be a positive voice on a website that often finds the negativity in everything.

You started off strong, and then went kooky.

You proudly boast that you don't need to pump your chest around, yet somehow you manage to slip in how you've "been there, done that", and you also find a way to note that you played a sport in college. Then, in an effort to secure your place as a posting legend, you end the retort by insulting your apparent nemesis, by suggesting your adversary "sat on the bench" or (the shame!) never even played a sport.

Thanks for not "pumping your chest around".

My thoughts are this, They have a dedicated Director, some of the best coaches known, they practice throughout the year to develop skills and team work, they are reliable with communications and schedule. Very organized club with dedicated fields. It doesn't seem like they are any less focused on the girls program. It may not right now get as many media plugs, but the program for girls runs just like the boys.

All the top Elevate girls left. Many, but not all went to Igloo. The Elevate Director left and went to Igloo as well. She coaches a strong HS team on the North Shore of LI. I think that Igloo will be attracting top talent over the next few years. I would NOT waste your time with Elevate. If people think a lot of kids and coaches jumped ship this year, wait until next year!

The fact is that the pool of players is definitely contracting vs 2 or 3 years ago. Far less teams in every age group and some of the start up clubs have faded away or merged. Its going back to the way it was 5-10 years ago where only the motivated parents are signing up. Lots of parents of B and C players have said why I am driving to MD every summer weekend to play on a 3rd or 4th team while paying the same as the 1st/A team to get crushed. These clubs were untruthful about the prospects of these B and C players and parents have smartened up. Put the money into tutors and a 529 plan.

So did many A team girls walk last year or is that someone trying to stir the pot?


top 4 girls went to igloo. Others tried out at Yj but made the 3rd team so came back.


Why would top A team girls go to a startup? Seems like a step back to me. We are kinda stuck where we are at, already paid 50% but looking for options for 2017. Considering TG or Elevate. Kid is a solid b-b+ player. Not Interested in YJ.

Any igloo folks out there care to comment on their thoughts so far?


All the top Elevate girls left. Many, but not all went to Igloo. The Elevate Director left and went to Igloo as well. She coaches a strong HS team on the North Shore of LI. I think that Igloo will be attracting top talent over the next few years. I would NOT waste your time with Elevate. If people think a lot of kids and coaches jumped ship this year, wait until next year!


Elevate picked up some YJ girls to fill those spots.


Aren't the girls who came from YJ the same girls who did not make the blue team. Girls who left Elevate were good and so are the girls who came to Elevate. I would say that's a pretty even trade off.

Elevate has had tremendous turnover in ALL agree groups. You will see them struggle against B teams this summer. I think their best days are behind them. Just a matter of time until the façade shows its true colors and crumbles.

Three of the top 5 girls left Elevate for Igloo and that is a huge impact on that team since the drop off after the top four girls are dramatic. On top of that, since so many kids left, kids that were on the 2nd team were asked to move up after tryouts and at least 3 of those kids left for other clubs. Don't take my word for it, they will struggle this summer. The proof will be on the field. My guess/hope is that they play in B brackets as they can not compete with the likes of MD, TLC, Heros, YJ, etc.

Wow bunch of tough guy parents coming on here talking smack about 12 and 13 yr old girls. Get a life. Not right doing this against those girls. I'm sure this is a parent who left. Because I know you think your daughter was all that. Maybe pass the ball to other girls beside her friends. Team game this is. Saying drop off is dramatic. I'm glad you guys now left.

Doesn't seem they are criticizing the players but rather the program for this age group on this team. However the top players did leave for a start up program - apparently due to the coaching they were receiving was sub standard. Dave is a great coach but can't coach every team. The coach for this team is apparently weak and has made the team a PAL team with players primarily from one town. Probably another reason those players left.

The club can't compete with those clubs you mentioned across all the age groups, not just 2021. Elevate is a second level club, nothing wrong with that at all, so long as the consumers know and recognize that, and accept that.

This really shows your ignorance. The program is just weak in this bracket. Other years including 2017 are strong. can other grades compete effectively to sly with other programs? Absolutely - they have shown that as a team and as players with many players recruited for good programs. That demonstrates success as a program. Unfortunately this group has fallen through the cracks but it doesn't spoil every other class. As the commenter mentioned, enliven us with some data to back up your claim since it rings hollow (and ignorant) as currently written.

TE has a good 2017 group, 2018s beat M&D in Florida, 2020s are very good, 2022 and 2023 are both very strong.

Most important thing is that both of my daughters both have a lot of fun and learn a lot.

YJ and M&D clearly sit atop, looks like Elevate must be third, a mere one goal underdog.

What's funny is more than 50% of Igloo is made up of B team players who had no shot and making the A team at their unnamed north shore club. Now you come on here chest pumping and bad mouthing the girls that stayed? Good luck this summer

Natalie Miller M and D is going to UMD

Miller (UMD) and Mona (Towson) were Md United players up until recruiting year.

Remember all of these girls still need to gain acceptance into these schools so that may be why there are changes and omissions.

How about TG's? Did they see much movement on their top team?

I would expect a certain amount of movement is typical for all top teams until the girls get a little older and teams settle down.

Agree with you but you can't dispute that this age group in particular has seen huge turnover over the last two years with a significant drain of talent. Hopefully some of the issues have been addressed, especially the coaching. You can't possibly expect to compete at the higher level if half your team changes year over year especially if you are not top grading talent.

You say only four left but if you are with the club you know full well they only had an accepted roster of about 13- 14 kids after tryouts and there was a mad dash to fill those spots. You also should recall 10-11 left the year before. No hate here, we moved on but just calling it as we saw it.

Maybe your daughter was cut and have an axe to grind. So tell me where the grass is greener? Yes maybe if they dont change coaching people might leave but I for one like the organization and have confidence in Dave doing the right thing for the girls. And where did these ten players go the year before? No some girls were dropped to the red and some left. Maybe there were better girls at tryouts.

M&D 2021's coach has a daughter on the team. Doesn't seem to have hurt them too much. Having a mom isn't always the problem, it's having the wrong mom

DK has taken over and now coaches the 21 Blue girls. As for 10 leaving, I reached out to find out this info rather than listen to BS on the site and believe it. What I was told (which matches up with how the fall/winter actually went), is that 4 girls left, after tryouts the Blue team had 18 girls and Red had 22. They left spots on Blue in case they decided to move people up. 3 girls who were unhappy from another club came and tried out late and made Blue. So there was no 10 girl turnaround. 4 left, 3 new came on and now Dave is coaching. I think 21 Blue will do just fine.

Nobody would ever dispute that DK is a master salesman!

It's very simple, if you made the team after tryouts you have the roster that was emailed to each blue player back in September and you can compare it to the current team.
To say they held spots in case they wanted to pull up red players is just BS! If they had red players good enough after tryouts they should have been offered a spot like everyone else.

Sounds like you are happy so far and I hope it works out for you.

DK is a great coach, no doubt..lets come back around to this conversation after season is done to see how much actual time he spent with this team though...if it interferes with his numerous $$ grabs, then something tells me that some college kid or a relative will be doing the work...

To the earlier poster who asked if the grass is any greener someplace else, I say probably not. Every club has its challenges but the best thing is to keep your eyes wide open, not get sucked into big promises and be realistic about your child's ability. No matter what club, school or town team for that matter there's always someone bitching about something.
I also think it also gets worse as they get older.

You are right. There is a huge problem with the number of clubs that have popped up, as well as the young age they are starting. The Club model started for advanced players to play together in the summer and fall to help with college recruiting. What actually happened was people took it as a way to make money at the expense of the rec lacrosse programs. There is no reason to be paying $2000+ for your child to play lacrosse in 2nd,3rd, 4th grade. And because of the willingness of parents to pay this, clubs are popping up all over with no plan to make your child better. Look at the scores in the MD Spring league. There are a few good teams in the A bracket, but the rest are just fodder. Not to mention the load of teams in the B divisions. What is the end result parents are looking for here? If it really is apparent to them that they are paying for their child to play lacrosse year round, but understanding that the likelihood of their child getting recruited is very small, then I guess that's fine. But the clubs are selling parents on the fact that they need to play club for colleges to see them.

Once the girls get to about 7th grade, you should have a pretty firm grasp on where they stand. When you play M&D, Heros, YJ, etc and lose by 15+ goals, what are you and your child getting out of the money you spend and the time you put in? Who is coaching your child? Are they improving? Do they even want to play in college?

It's a harsh reality for the girls, but it is the truth. Selling them false promises isn't helping them either.

So here's a question, on the top teams you mentioned above, is the coaching and training that much better or have they just assembled a field of the best talent and it really doesn't matter who is coaching them? From a development standpoint, what should one expect if they are only practicing once or twice a week for an hour or so? Are the top teams developing these kids or just steering them in the right direction?

Are you kidding me? Coaching has so much to do with it. Playing within a system and giving your girls an opportunity to succeed is so crucial.

It is a combination of the above. A truly good team (and Coach) will find a way to practice more than once a week now

Obviously the good teams have top talent. But the good teams also practice multiple days awake and also practice year round. In many cases, the girls on top teams also train on the side in their own time.

We are talking about 7th grade. At this point there is a clear difference between the kids that have it and kids that don't.

Nope, the very top teams, the kids show up highly developed on their own. If your counting on the travel coach to develope your kid, she won't be on top team very long, that's for sure.

True enough. The kids have to put work in on their own. Whether that's just hitting the wall or going to strength and conditioning training. The top kids never take months off. Even when they are playing other sports they are taking a couple days a week to keep their lacrosse skills sharp.

Why would I care if when she goes to college she is sick of lacrosse? She can quit. She's already in school. Guess she'll miss out on her professional lacrosse career.

The hard work will pay off when she gets to go to a school she may not have otherwise had such an easy time getting into.

Yeah...and she'll lose her 100% lax full-ride scholly (you know, because of all the extra "work" she put in to be the best?) and your college bill will be too high and she will have to drop out and go to community college. All that work and money...for nothing. Good luck.

As an Elevate parent in another age group it would be great if DK went to coach this team, that way he wouldn't hang around our games and hover over our coach. He loves to walk around and coach every game and it is truly the most detrimental thing he does all summer to both the kids and the other parent coaches. Coach one team and stay away from our team DK.

Elevate will not play in the top bracket in this age group this summer. If they do it will be a huge mistake for the club and the kids. They are not at that level and they will have a miserable summer if they do.

What do you mean? Elevate 2021 has been around for several years. Credit to them they have been getting to play some top teams and brackets, with mixed results. Many tournament mix top teams in weak pool play but this team would not fair well in a true top bracket tournament, and it sounds like the gap is only getting bigger.

Sorry, meant current years roster. My point was saying they can't compete at the higher level without seeing how the team plays is not right and you can't base it on last years performance.

7th grade girls should not be playing this sport all year. Get real. They play soccer, gymnastics, basketball, cheer, chorus play their instrument etc. Do you think they want to practice lax all year. Most will compete and win or lose....5 minutes later they are playing with teammates and having fun. You sir are the problem !!!

No one said they don't play other sports. But top teams do some sort of training to keep sticks in the girls' hands. They are 13, not 7. Playing with their friends and having fun? A lot of girls have fun by playing lacrosse with their friends.

Spring is over and time for the real season to begin. Looking forward to some good games with YJ. Hopefully M&D and YJ make finals at Mid-Atlantic in couple weeks. Not sure why they were put in different divisions.

M&D outscored their opponents 170-48 in 11 games this spring. Need some competition.

They are in opposing A brackets that meet in the finals for the Mid Atlantic championship. Very purposely placed in bracket and pool play to set up to meet again in the finals, so long as both teams take care of business along the way.

But that's something you get with summer Lax and you just never know what the competition will be. I can't imagine any team purposely looking for blowouts. It's no fun for either team.

If by Little Sister of the Poor you mean Skywalkers, TLC, Stars, Integrity, MD United, etc I guess you have a point. They play the top teams at their age. They beat Skywalkers 18-7 in Spring League finals. Beat TLC 17-5 in quarters. All of these are good teams at their age, it's just that currently M&D is just on a whole other lever from other Maryland 2021 teams. Could this change next year as stated above? I guess, but there is a huge gap to close right now.

It's not like M&D is avoiding anyone , you can only play the teams that are on your spring schedule. YJ 's have not played a game together as a team this year . It will be nice to get all of the teams out playing in what will hopefully be nice weather. Good luck to all in the upcoming season and safe travels.

If by Little Sister of the Poor you mean Skywalkers, TLC, Stars, Integrity, MD United, etc I guess you have a point. They play the top teams at their age. They beat Skywalkers 18-7 in Spring League finals. Beat TLC 17-5 in quarters.

Just curious, how wide is the gap between 1st and 2nd M&D teams?


Huge

So here is the mnd program in a nutshell. Get the most athletic and advanced girls in 4th and 5th graders cause mommy and daddy have a dream. They dominate strictly because of early natural ability. As time goes by, other teams develop their girls to play lacrosse. That is why mnd is not so dominant in the high school years. Nothing wrong with that philosophy but those are the facts.

What about Hero's 2021 - they're not up there in this age group. They're strong in the older age groups.

After watching M&D 2020 I don't disagree with you. But, M&D 2021 is so far ahead in terms of the offense and defense they run that there really isn't a comparison. They are by far the best coached team I have seen. Teams that survive on athleticism will lose now and then against better coached teams. There is a reason they are undefeated in 3 spring seasons. I guess time will tell.

Considering Skywalkers lost in the finals 18-7, apparently they both have some catching up to do.

They become slightly less competitive to the point where other Maryland team can actually compete with them in high school because all the studs commit in middle school and start taking it easy, even attending to other commitments off the field. They take their collective foot off of your neck.

It's kind of a silly discussion. At 2021, there is YJ Blue and M&D. Until any other 2021 team beats one of them the discussion ends there.

That was the worst game M&D has played all year. Credit to Pure for playing hard the whole game but they did lose 10-1 to heros in their next game.

YJ beat M&D once at Lax for the Cure. M&D beat YJ twice at Mid-Atlantic last year and they tied at Beach Lax last year. Those are the only times the teams played last year. Not sure where you are coming up with twice.

M&D is now 4-1-1 against YJ over the last 3 years.

M&D parent but just to be clear. You are calling Skywalkers, TLC and MD United B teams? Assume you are Elevate or TG but your teams would certainly have trouble with those teams as well. The only B team they played they beat by 10 goals.

I would be completely shocked if YJ lose to anyone this year other than M&D. M&D and YJ are heads and shoulders above everyone else. YJ has been together for only a couple weeks while the MD teams had a spring season. I assume our games will be closer as summer goes on and the spread between YJ and the others will grow.

Ah...M&D parent. Md United is a "B" team now. They used to be the "sexy" choice but have come back to the pack. Now they're just another club. No good coaches, director is a business person first, coach second.

I agree and I am a YJ parent. I also think that after an opening season weekend they will have plenty to work on. I am a little curious however, what team does your daughter play for? This way we can be sure to pass the message along that your team didn't think too much of their caliber of play?

YJ Skak beat Heros by 10 on Sunday. That looks like head and shoulders to me. Do you only look at the scoreboards to judge teams since you know nothing about the sport?

My daughter's team lost a close one to YJ. It was closer than I thought it would be but no doubt, the YJ team is very skilled and there is little to no drop off when the lines change. One of the goalies is the best in the country in my humble opinion. The girl's NPYLL puts the MD teams at an advantage to start the season. Once the NY teams have time to gel, the outcomes will likely be different. I do believe that M&D has separated from everyone else at this age. Their system is enviable and they put a tremendous amount of work in.

Apologies - we have a hard time telling them apart. Was it heros green that lost to Skywalkers a few weeks back or was that the white team?

Being an outsider - the way we've learned to tell them apart is by listening. You'll know what I mean when you see both teams at the same tournament. BIG difference.

Yes, even though the two teams are in the same organization there are probably not two more different coaching staffs in the club lacrosse universe. The parents on white are very, very lucky.

And nobody has seen Elevate play this year. They may be a contender for the top spot. [/quote]

Elevate 2021? Dave - that's good. That totally had me laughing. Thanks for brightening up my Monday. [/quote]

You wont be laughing after this weekend after Elevate 2021 heads up to New England and takes down all the top teams and goes undefeated. I watched these girls at practice the other week and they look to be unstoppable. Lets talk after the weekend!

I got news for you. It doesn't make a damn bit of difference who wins what tournament now and it gets less and less important as time goes on.

Perfectly said! The only db's that put so much emphasis on winning EVERY FREAKIN'CONTEST is....the YJ lemmings. They act like their life depends on whether their kid's team wins. It's sad, really. Poor kids.

You should go whine like a [lacrosse] to your club coaches that you no longer want your kid playing in championship tournaments because no one cares who wins or loses except for those crazy YJ parents . Get a life , wanting to win is part of sports .

This definitely not an M&D 2021 parent posting these musings. It sounds like a heros or sky walkers parent. If winning to you was not so important why are your coaches so over the top?

You are right. This is because in youth lacrosse, just as in most all sports, teams take on the personalities of their coaches. Some teams are loud, angry and have a chip on their shoulder. Some teams are "classy and always stay above the fray."

I agree and I am a YJ parent. I also think that after an opening season weekend they will have plenty to work on. I am a little curious however, what team does your daughter play for? This way we can be sure to pass the message along that your team didn't think too much of their caliber of play?


Heros


That explains it. Next time you guys win something will be the first. Keep spouting your nonsense. You guys picked up all those Bitmore girls that were gonna put you over the top. How's that worked out for you?


Looks like it worked out just fine this weekend. Got the t-shirt and we are rolling along just fine now. Doubled up the score on Topguns black.

I believe they're Brand new team and heard thrown right to the wolves, good gauge to see where they fit.

(L) at this age group were 1-3, not a good showing at all. not really impressed at all with this program on a whole, What are your thoughts on the coaching there? Seems Coaching is seriously lacking on the 2020 B team. Huntington asst coach, isn't doing a good job with this team also. The same way she runs that Huntington team 3-12 is the way she runs this one. Lot of unhappy parents, Do not see a successful summer for the 2020 Teal team or any other team except for the stacked Blue team. I do believe these B teams are created solely for the purpose of lining pockets.

I am not sure about lining pockets when the entire program only has one b team. It was a tough weekend for the 2021 team, tough bracket, and a new team that hasn't really played in anything significant as the whole team with the personel who was there Sunday. Definetly work to do, but there were some positives to take away from as well. Humbling experience, but thanks for coming on here to rub their face in it.

B teams on a whole sole purpose are to line pockets, other than YJ of course. There B girls kicked butt this weekend. Good job girls! Can't say the same for any other LI club teams.

Maybe as a new program they should have just stuck to one team per age group before adding another. If you cannot afford the same resources and quality coaching to all teams then you shouldn't add another. unless of course the other is just for extra spending cash. In regards to your 2021 girls they have been practicing all winter/spring and had more than enough time to gel with each other. Seems like the coaching is lagging there also.

Truthfully, if you thought that was a tough bracket you are in for a rude awakening.

I don't mean this to be disrespectful but you can't build a competive team by picking up disgruntled B team players and expect a miracle. These offshoots from established boys programs are nothing but money grab ventures setup by someone looking to grab a piece of the pie. 91 girls probably had the most promise and look at them now.

Who was in the 2021 bracket that made it "tough"?

I know M&D, YJ, and Heros weren't there. As poster said, you are in for a real eye opener when you play those teams.

This was the first time the team, as a whole, has played together. Yes, they have practiced, but that in itself is very different than playing a full field game and learning to trust your teammates. They got better each game of the tournament, Their defense held strong, but their offense needs some work. Hopefully the coaches took note and can make adjustments. Give them some time, they are a first year team and have some very talented players. Nobody was asking to play in a weaker division. They got to see who they will be up against this season and what they need to work on. Hopefully they can come together as a team.

I watched this team play YJ Blue and thought they did a nice job for there first time out as a new team. The more they play together the more in sync the offense will be.

None of the top 10 teams were wherever Elevate was. Elevate spends the summer avoiding top competition.

Why do certain clubs get ****** on this site?


They are not clubs that BOTC would like to promote. They have proven to be questionable.


Gotcha but kinda surprised more clubs don't get **** out.

Strong?
That's what you walked away with?
This team struggled mightily against the YJ team, and that would be expected of most any team. The more concerning problem is the team getting blown out by the other B level teams in the pool. This team was billed and sold as a contender with other top clubs A teams. Perhaps SL should have dipped the team's toe into a pool play. Nothing like knowing exactly where your team stands after the very first weekend.

Doubtful you were there, you obviously have issues with SL. Move on the team will be fine.

Why doesn't Elevate 2021 play the top teams anymore? Two years ago they used to play M&D, YJ, etc. What happened. Will they play any top teams this summer? Maybe they are not at that level any more and the director realizes that it wouldn't be good for the girls.

Elevate has only played M&D once at National Draw two summers ago. It was not close and M&D had their first half goalie playing in the field in the second half as the game got out of hand. Maybe they are playing more realistic competition now.

I have no horse in the race and Maybe I'm looking at the wrong results but didn't Teal go 3w-1L and then get knocked out of bracket play by thier own programs Blue team? 3-1 with the only loss in pool play coming by 2 goals isn't to shabby.

Yes they did great! Shouldn't have lost that 2nd game though and was outcoached against Blue Team. All the girls played well, just some minor coaching errors prevented them from being 4-0.

So I remembered all the chatter about this Cobra Kai that I never heard of. Post above and others made it sound like an unstoppable force.

Enough about the 2020 Teal team. You were not out coached in game against Blue. You are just not as talented.

Never beaten YJ or M&D. You're going to beat them both this weekend? Good luck

MD United has never beaten YJ Blue. And they beat M&D 2 years ago in a 25 minute game in a braveheart. Since then the games have never been close. The teams are completely different now with some of MD United's better players moving to M&D.

Md United is now an afterthought, a has-been. They are no longer the "sexy" pick anymore, no longer the team that got all the best players around Annapolis. The director has been figured out as nothing more than a business woman and hype artist. In the Annapolis area, the directors at M&D and Integrity have resume's that crush everyone else's. The Integrity has actual NCAA coaching experience, along with several high school programs. And well, there's no need to discuss M&D's directors resume'. Md United = yesterdays news.

How in the [lacrosse] they ever got invited to the "Great 8" is a mystery to me, and an even bigger mystery is how they got invited back. Never were great. A little splash and flash...zero substance.

MDU was not at the Great8 last year - this is their first year. It's no longer the Great8 - it's more like the 'Okay16'.

Should get tested tomorrow if they are able to get out of their bracket. Played two weak teams today. So far this team hasn't faced any competive teams this summer.

Wow... You are a stalker huh... But as you already know since your probably watching the results online, they lost 8-3. But they did beat a team that beat them last week. So that's progress. Still need plenty of work, no one involved will say different. But as was said they will be fine. Thanks for asking.

M&D over MD United 5-0 in one semi

M&D dominated again. The only reason MU advanced is because Director put them in B bracket and they move up the chain. Would never had made it to semis otherwise. Smoke and mirrors like the organization. MU has taken a nose dive. Stars is the new kid on the block.

Either of the top two teams? Are you referring to M&D and YJ? Didn't I just read that YJ lost 4-1 to Stars? Maybe YJ r not one of 2 best teams??

That's funny. If anything the refs are harder on M&D and YJ because they play much more aggressive defense.

Maryland United East has a free pass to the playoffs this week at Lax for the Cure too. How is it you guys are always with a bunch of B teams?

One Division has M&D, YJ, Stars and Skywalkers. Another has Heros, NEMS, TLC and Elevate.

MU's division has Skywalkers White, YJ's C team and some other teams I've never heard of

Does anyone know what happened to the girl who was air lifted from Laxin Out Loud for a back or neck injury yesterday? Hoping/praying she's OK. How did it happen?

I wasn't there (was with my son at another tourney), and was getting the story from my daughter last night. I may be entirely off base??

Because this is how the Md United director "sells" her team's accomplishments. The sad part is, gullible parents buy it, thinking that Md United is the team to be on. Like was said earlier in this thread, she is not a coach. She is a business person first and foremost. A good hype machine. Kids leave good programs to go to her team, thinking they're going to be the next big thing because BA told them so. Then, years later, the kid and parents realize that it was nothing ore than a "sell job" and they feel betrayed but it's too late. BTW...my daughter did not play for Md United, never wanted to even though she was "recruited" by them. I'm glad she stayed where she was. But, she has friends who played for BA at Md United and almost all of them feel like they should've stayed on the team they were on before.

I'll let you do the math about what would happen if Steps was already A/B in 7th grade.

No need to do math. Look at Integrity's results from their spring season in MD. Lost by 10 to Skywalkers and 17 to M&D

Ok. No one said Integrity was on par with M&D Black. My very educated guess is that M&D Black would easily beat ANY STEPS team too, just like they do to almost every team. Integrity 21's are a very good team, who can be very competitive with most teams...upset a few And get upset a few times. And, from my view, the STEPS Philly White team is better than the STEPS NJ Blue team. They were scrappier. The South Jersey Select Pink team was also a good team, better than STEPS NJ Blue.

There is no perfect club and/or experience. Parents complain about playing time, favoritism, other parents, the plethora of "me first" teammates etc. The key is to find a club where your daughter is happy, not where you are happy. I could find disgruntled parents/players on each and every club from the "elites" to your B level teams for the reasons I mentioned above. The grass isn't always greener.

100% agree! I say this to anyone who will listen. But all too often, the daddy/mommy isn't happy about when Little Super Star doesn't start or if she played 1 minute less than a kid who THEY think is less talented than Little Super Star (I can't believe there are parents who actually keep track of playing time of other players besides their own). There is a mom on one of our teams who thinks her daughter is going to Maryland. The kid just got out of 7th grade! Not even near high school yet! It's pathetic! Her daughter is a good player, one of the top 4 on the team. But, JEEZ! Relax frustrated Mommy. Let the kid play. She wants to take the kid off the team where the kid is comfortable, and put her on a team that mommy thinks is better. It's 100% absolutely ridiculous.

You may not believe it, but it's the absolute truth. So maybe the Hero's parents who were berating the M&D Parents and telling them how ashamed they should be of themselves should apologize.

It was simple double team that the girl turned into and was pushed backwards. No malicious intent.

They are very good this year. By end of spring, they were the second best team in Maryland. Should be interesting at Lax for the Cure. M&D, YJ and SKywalkers in same Division and only 2 advance.

False. The girl was slashed and cross-checked at the same time. She felt tingling on both arms for too long. Emergency personnel made decision to air lift. She checked out okay and came back to support her team. She has a stick and butt end shaped welt along the back or her neck. Maybe not malicious, but not a simple double team. She did not play again yesterday. Sheesh.

You are completely embellishing what happened. The girl was pushed and her momentum carried her forward and she hit her head on the turf when she fell. At no point was a stick anywhere near her head. Only one of the M&D players made any contact with her in any way. I'm glad she's ok, but don't make it into something it wasn't. Every game was recorded.

That is ridiculous and even more sad is the fact that if she is good enough she may be committing to Maryland in a year so not that far away.

I would encourage her to "chase her dreams" and to go where her heart takes her. More playing time for your daughter and you will not miss the ball hog nor the mom on the sidelines and her whining. The grass is always greener above the septic tank.

Ok...the schedule showed them as STEPS Philly White. Somebody with the club or tournament erred. Either way, Integrity beat STEPS NJ Blue and STEPS Philly (White), and SJS Pink all in the same tournament. As a previous genius stated...do the math! Losers always have excuses. You guys sound like YJ.

No one has anointed them as anything other than a good team. Not the best, and not the worst...better than most though. That LBC loss was bad though. They did not play well, but they're middle schoolers. Unpredictable.

After today it's apparent that it's still M&D and then there is everyone else. Just too deep this year. YJ did well to come back to tie from 5-2 down but in the end they just couldn't keep up.

I stand corrected and admit it. It is STEPS Philly, no White in their name. I probably got them confused with STEPS NJ White. However, my assessment stays the same...STEPS Philly is better than STEPS NJ Blue. Too many of the multi-state, money grab teams...STEPS, XTeam, Midwestern Force, etc. Isn't Ultimate another one?

Agree 100 percent, M&D is the team to beat. YJ can go toe to toe on the field, but loses the games on the draw circle. Heros is also a very good team at this age group. Glad to see many quality teams at the lax for the cure! Good luck, See you on the fields.

It looks like the talent level on Long Island in 2021 the years below and down is on the decline. L.I.'s so called top 2021 team, YJ isn't getting it done. Their draw girls are too weak and are get dominated, their field play is solid but still average for any MD team. Par for the course from LI lately. They have one draw girl/middy who has some mouth on her as well, she needs to show some class. Starting to go downhill for them from what I heard from her mouth to her teammates, only a matter of time before they self-destruct with that attitude.

Got to love the pat on your own back. Give me a break. Heros is a fine team with a strong draw control presence. Irrational over confidence will bite them in the tail.

These teams may have been closer last year but the gap this year is huge. M&D is at a totally different level. While YJ certainly has some quality players to say they go toe to toe and lost in on the draw control alone is laughable.

I didn't mean field play is on par with M&D, I meant average for a general Maryland Team, nothing special.

Starting to go downhill for them from what I heard from her mouth to her teammates, only a matter of time before they self-destruct with that attitude.


These teams may have been closer last year but the gap this year is huge. M&D is at a totally different level. While YJ certainly has some quality players to say they go toe to toe and lost in on the draw control alone is laughable.

I didn't mean field play is on par with M&D, I meant average for a general Maryland Team, nothing special.


YJ has some fantastic field players. The issue is, they don't seem to have improved over last year where as M&D added a lot of talent the biggest of which being their new goalie.

Skywalkers is a very improved team as well so not surprising that they were able to win a close game over YJ yesterday. There will always be close games, which is why it's all the more impressive that no one has been able to beat M&D.

This reminds me of a player on the LI Express or Liberty 2016 team a few years ago. My daughter's team was playing them and winning (I don't remember the score though) and there was a dead ball. One of our parents was yelling for our girls to "Go!" on the whistle. Well, one of the LI team girls that was close to us looked over at us and said, pretty loudly "Shut the f*** up!". We just kinda laughed, and told her to pay attention to the game.

You idiots are laughable. These are girls who just finished 7th grade you are talking about. Let's wait until next summer or two summers from now when the recruiting really begins to care so much about how the teams are doing. I am not saying it doesn't matter, as teams should want to win, but calm down at this age level. Also, several teams at this level (e.g., STEPS) haven't even moved to A/B teams yet which happens next summer.

Yj will need to shop around which they have never had to or put much effort in. Many legit girls teams are popping up and are competing which pulls from talent pool. Yj will do fine against local programs but if want to compete with top elite programs outside they will need to fill many voids and on some grade levels they have eyes on outside players

But the smart ones won't come. Who wants to deal with the blatant favoritism toward some players, friends and family, politically connected, absentee coaching, complete lack of player development to name a few things. This is the single reason for the success of some of these other programs as why people are seeking other options.

Typical Skak parent attitude. Let's see barely squeaking by Heroes, losing to SW and multiple loses M&D this summer? There's no MD clubs fearing the bee in this age except maybe one M&D mom who is glad you lost to SW yesterday.

I guess it depends on how you measure success. Name one club that has won anything outside of LI other than YJ? TG 2020 had a good year 2 years ago and fell apart. YJ won 2 ages at Lax for the Cure this Weekend. M&D and Heros won 2 as well. SKywalkers the other. So MD teams won 5 of the 7 and YJ won the other 2. Where are the other LI teams?

Maybe success to some is not beating MD teams but playing time, player development, less BS and just having fun. Oh and once you get past the top handful of girls on the top team there really isnt much difference.

If Player Development is occurring, than team success will follow. There is not and should not be any guarantee of playing time on club teams. The expectation is to win championships.

This girl was just very harsh to her teammates, nothing to our girls. Getting on her teammate pretty hard and not going about it in a nice way. Berating one and dropping a "f" bomb at her at least once and then mouthing off to another girl on her team after that. We were all pretty shocked what came out of her mouth, and a little bewildered when we realized she said that to her own teammates. Didn't seem like a nice kid. Would want my daughter around that kid. Seems like the chemistry on YJ is different from last year. I guess losing will do that.

None but since YJ can't get it done either do you think it's time to send the crossfire girls down to MD to take care of business? You know that hobbled together team that just likes to play for fun. You could leave all the deadwood and the lunatic coach back on LI. Maybe CR will let you fly under a special YJ umbrella but you'll have to promise to keep it a secret as you might hurt some feelings back home.

Some of the Crossefire girls are the ones holding back YJ now as their development has stalled, while others have been demoted to the B-team. The ones who aren't YJ are a non-issue and were just along for the ride anyway. The team just needs to cut the roster and stick with one goalie.

Yes, that is just what you need to do. Cut the roster, and develop one less goalie. After all, this is not about creating opportunities for girls to become student/athletes, it's all about winning little league lacrosse games.

I have news for you. The losses mean nothing. Zero. For that matter, neither do the wins. Yes, trying to build a winning effort is important, but the reality is over-emphasis on merely winning and thereby neglecting to develop all players is a disservice.

Now, for the parents of girls going on to eventually sign large contracts to play professional lacrosse where they are destined to make large sums of money playing the sport they love, that all probably seems silly. But to the rest of us it makes sense to be more concerned about developing all the players instead of resenting their presence.

The fact is, you can have a roster of more than 20 girls, you can have a couple goalies, you can have differences in talent levels (which you may learn will evolve over the coming years) and you can still win lots of games while providing lots of opportunities. It doesn't have to be one or the other.

The worst thing to ever happen to youths sports is parents with egos.

I agree 100%. Club teams like YJ that emphasize winning over everything else, and their parents and club staff, have almost ruined the whole sport of club lacrosse. Winning is important and developing a winning attitude is important, but developing a winning player is MORE important. During my last two years as a club parent, I was the person who handed out the player profile sheets to the college coaches. Through that experience I met easily over 100 different coaches from all 3 NCAA college divisions, plus NAIA. I can remember only 3 coaches that knew the score of the game they were watching for recruits. 3! I'm sure they are aware of the game intensity, but I know from first-hand experience that they do not care about the score...only the girl(s) they are there to watch. Oh, and here's a few more tips I saw MANY times, from 2 or 3 feet away...I couldn't tell what they were writing, but...they watch what the players do when they are off ball, what they do after they make a mistake, what the parents are like, how "mouthy" a player is after a foul, how a player reacts to her coaches instructions, etc. Trust me, they take notes on all that stuff, plus more. Consider yourselves notified.

Great points. At times I wonder if the club affiliation is more important to the parents rather than the girls. My daughter currently plays for what most people on BOTC would consider a "B" team (non YJ, Heros, or M & D). Prior to this year she played on what would be considered an "A" team. Her love for the game and confidence are back because it's not all about 3-4 girls controlling the ball, she plays almost the entire game, and there really isn't that sense of superiority by some girls that you often find on the so called "elite" clubs. There is a ton of talent across the board for "B" teams, the simple difference between the two levels being the YJs and Heros of the world have rosters that are stocked from top to bottom. Unfortunately for many of those girls who are talented but languish on the end of the bench their development is slowed.

Amen. Doesn't matter if your daughter plays for one of the Big Kids On The Block or not, if she has the moxie and talent she will get looks by college coaches if that is her ultimate goal.

All true. However, if you find the rare place where all girls on the "elite" team get equal playing time and move the ball effectively, caring as much about the assist as the goal, then you have it all. Playing with great players, presuming that they play a team game, makes everyone on the team better. You might not win that close game against the team that shortens the bench, but you will be competitive and have a great experience for everyone. Of course that requires the parents to stop beating their chests about who won what and let the coaches coach and the players play. I know of only one that does it that way.

However, if you find the rare place where all girls on the "elite" team get equal playing time and move the ball effectively, caring as much about the assist as the goal, then you have it all. Playing with great players, presuming that they play a team game, makes everyone on the team better. You might not win that close game against the team that shortens the bench, but you will be competitive and have a great experience for everyone. Of course that requires the parents to stop beating their chests about who won what and let the coaches coach and the players play. I know of only one that does it that way.


Which one does it that way?


heros?


LOL. I can guarantee you it's not Heros


Let me ask you, do you know of any LI or MD program that does it that way?

They are actually the only ones that play a team game. They have no dominate player but they are all getting better because of it. Not the best but who cares. Don't wanna hear from "angry parent cuz my child got cut"

You are full of it. We play heros all the time and there are plenty of games where girls don't play more than a couple minutes

Not that I know of. But should it be? The clubs make no secret of the fact that they are there to win. I will say that while there are games where some girl may not play on my daughter's team. But throughout a weekend like last, the playing time is pretty even. The girls that don't play in playoff games will play more in some of the pool games. So much more development is done in the 4-6 hours a practice a week than can ever be accomplished in games.

Well wanting to win is great. But why don't they try to win by playing all their kids? You can be there to win, and still play all your players in a playoff game. My rule is, if you take a kid on a team, they play. Somewhere along the line, the adults lost sight of what this is about. If a kid is dogging it, not showing up to practices etc., that's a different story. But if the effort is there, and you put them on a team, they should be given the opportunity to play in meaningful situations. And yes, of course skill development is accomplished in practice, but there is no substitute for feeling the pressure and the adrenaline of highly competitive and "important" games.

The coaches answer to the club directors. Do you think a coach is going to go to their director and say we lost because I had to get all the girls in? Girls are put on the team based on a few hour long tryout. Some girls develop more throughout a season and earn the minutes they get in those games. As long as the coach is up front about how the playing time will be handled, there shouldn't be a problem. Our coach is very open at the beginning that there may be games girls don't play. That whoever plays best throughout the tournament will be the ones playing in the 20 minute playoff games. It's hard to sub in those short games. Especially if you get down early.

It's completely unreasonable to think that all girls will play in every game. This is club lacrosse not a town team. What you'll notice on the teams that are developing girls as the girls that play in tight games changes throughout the season as girls develop. There's nothing wrong with the girls competing for playing time. Practice is so much more important than games in terms of development.

I was sitting next to a M and D parent a few weeks ago. He asked me who my daughter was, I asked him about his, he said she is on the sidelines and hasn't been in yet and it was midway through 2nd half. Everyone on our YJ team played this was pool play.

Impossible. She must have been injured. M & D is above reproach. They do it the right way every day.

It may have been pool play, but it was the game that determined who went to the playoffs. Everyone on M&D played in that game also. I don't know if there was a girl that didn't play until late in that game or not, but the girls that played less in that game started and played most of the pool games on Sunday. Again, this is club lacrosse. If you want to be on a team where playing time is equal, maybe you should play on different teams than M&D, YJ, Heros, etc. There are plenty of options.

I guess it depends on what you consider is the "right way". M&D makes it no secret that they are at every tournament to try to win. If this means that not every girl plays some games, that is understood from the very beginning. It is a choice to play for M&D. Is competition within the team a bad thing? The girls constantly push each other and starters change throughout the year based on how they are developing. If you are looking for a team that has equal playing time every game, go back to rec or find another club.

I think the point here is that this practice does occur on many ( if not all ) top tier travel clubs. I know my club & my Daughters team does it (YJ). there have been games this year in which she has played more minutes and games she has played less ( so far she has gotten in all of them..even finals) but I also know that a small few of her teammates ( 2 or 3) have had games they have not played in at all.
these are facts that need to be thought of or at least reconsidered each year you participate on these clubs..is the money, the time spent and the end result worth it..

I completely agree with you. I think it is on the parents and player to make the decision what is best for them. It can't be fun for the girls that don't play in these games. And they are putting in just as much work. But that's the deal. They are going into 8th grade and there will just be more separation as they get older.

If your daughter is playing club lacrosse and continues to struggle catching and throwing, she shouldn't be wasting $$$$ on club lax and probably deserves to warm the bench. On the other hand, if she is on par with the other girls skill wise, then maybe it's time to look elsewhere for another team where she can be given a clean slate.

Monster also beat Heros and TLC in the fall. Problem is, they only show up twice a year. Where are they the rest of the time?

The losses were by 1 goal to Skywalkers and also lost to M&D who hasn't lost in over a year. Not exactly something to be ashamed of.

YJ Skak is certainly not in the 7-8 range.

Why do you people keep putting Md United on this list? My guess is that you think they're as good as they were a few years ago. The reality is that today they are no longer pretty good...they're more like mediocre now.

Get over YJ mom and face it this team year over year has gone backwards! Way too many friends and family and connected kids that can't get it done. Girls that may have stood out last summer are now above average at best.. The MD teams are just more physical and stronger. Very sad if this is the best LI has to offer.

I know the boys side there are so many holdbacks with you Maryland people. I was at lax for the cure and your girls are bigger so I'm thinking most part you guys do the same with your girls. My daughter is 2021 and born oct 03. She would be a 2022 with your rules and she would dominate a year younger. All about the athletic advantage with Maryland. It all comes out in the wash come college.

There is no question that some Maryland girls are older at these age groups. All you have to do is look closely. Some of these girls have 6-8 inches on their Long Island counter parts. Enjoy your early advantage. Funny how they don't enter into the U15 championships. I wonder why??

There is enough talent in central Maryland to field two teams as good as M+D.

Skak parents you are embarrassing yourselves! You have been playing these same teams since the 4th grade now you want to pull the age card. Maybe CR should ask, where's the beef and do a better job recruiting bigger girls. YJ might just have to start to actually develop girls instead of just turning them loose on a field.

I agree. Quit embarrassing yourselves. Be a grown-up and admit defeat. Quit with the excuses. The Md girls are not older. We do have teams at the U15, and those teams are made up of many of these same players. Maybe CR and her cronies should quit worrying so much about the $$$ and start coaching.

The age excuse is just that with the girls. With the boys you would have a point, but the girls don't hold back and repeat grades like the girls do. The girl private schools don't allow it. It's an excuse passed down to LI parents from LI club directors. If the few girls born in September- November make that much difference that's a shame.

There is enough talent in central Maryland to field two teams as good as M+D.


If you say so. I'm sure they are just waiting until High School to play.

BINGO! Here in MD, girls do not "hold back" like some of the boys do. That's why it gets under the skin of the LI clubs so much...because they cannot fathom losing fair and square. If they get beaten by a MD team you can bet your right testicle that the excuses will come, fast and furious; star was sick, two girls were at a camp, the MD girls are really too old, blah, blah, blah. Sometimes you just lose. Get over it.

It all comes out in the wash come college.


Thanks Mom - can't wait to watch your daughter dominate when she gets to high school and plays younger girls. Tell us her name and school so we can watch for her.

Skak parents you are embarrassing yourselves! You have been playing these same teams since the 4th grade now you want to pull the age card. Maybe CR should ask, where's the beef and do a better job recruiting bigger girls. YJ might just have to start to actually develop girls instead of just turning them loose on a field.



I agree. Quit embarrassing yourselves. Be a grown-up and admit defeat. Quit with the excuses. The Md girls are not older. We do have teams at the U15, and those teams are made up of many of these same players. Maybe CR and her cronies should quit worrying so much about the $$$ and start coaching.

Good point, how much coaching vs poaching goes on at YJ.

It would appear not enough of either based on this summers 2021 and below performance.

The YJ 2021 top team did not meet expectations. Having said that I am quite certain the changes that need to be made will not escape the Director. With a renewed commitment from these young ladies I am certain they will be back competing at the top. Time to meet your competitions commitment level from coaches to each and every player.

Yeah, YJ 2021 should be embarrassed about losing in the finals of Mid-Atlantic and the Semis of Laxin Out Loud. And I don't know how those girls slept at night after the one goal loss to Skywalkers at LFTC kept them out of the playoffs. Those 13 year old girls should be ashamed of themselves.

I bet the girls slept fine, the parents of the girls who will be moving down probably not so much

I'm quite certain that as long as the club director puts $$$$ first the changes that need to be made won't be made. Sure she will drop a few down maybe pull one or two up but the wholesale change that needs to be made won't happen. Bye the way, the best girls on LI as you like to say dont appear to be responding to this coach. Do the girls still seem to be happier and play better when she's not around?

What exactly is the concern? It's not like they lost games to some crappy teams. They lost 4 games this summer to 3 or the best teams in MD. 2 of them to probably the best team in America at this age. Another was in a short playoff game and the other was by a goal. As a Maryland parent, I just don't see that this team is the disaster you guys make it out to be. Are your expectations that they never lose a game? At this point, it's going to be hard for any team to win a tournament when M&D is there. Things may change next year and that won't be the case but YJ is certainly still one of the top teams at the grade.

So that would make Skak the third best team in America in addition to the best team on LI? Maybe things aren't so bad when you put it that way.

That was exactly my point. Not to mention they are the only team to have beaten M&D in the last 2 years. Why do LI parents act like the sky is falling because they lost a few games? Is it really arrogance that YJ should always be the best team?
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2021-7th Grade Fall 2015 Summer 2016 - 07/04/16 06:32 PM
It's going to be even tougher to beat M &D next season as other top players from neighboring clubs are set to try out. If you think they pounded teams this year, watch what they do when they add another piece here and another piece there.
