I will not be making a high school thread for each age group. You will have to find a way to share this one.

Looks like a scrimmage is going to happen between Chaminade and Smithtown East. Should be fun to watch!

No it won't be fun at all, only frustrating if it goes like Syosset's scrimmages against Chaminade . Syosset beats them by a lot and then Chaminade spends the rest of the year saying scrimmages don't count, we didn't have our "real" players, everyone was hurt, blah , blah , blah........Excuses, Excuses
Don't waste your time Smithtown East. It will be the same outcome

What a tool bag - a waste of time for Smithtown East to scrimmage against a high quality team heading into the season?

kids - kids - kids, first of all the original post was knocking Chammy not exalting Syosset, it was a clumsy attempt at mocking what is the well known superior high school Long Island, everybody assumes it was a Syosset athletic supporter who made the post and now the entire hamlet is suffering the wrath of the BOTC community. Syosset is a wonderful place to raise a family with excellent schools, wonderful parks and probably the most beautiful section of Jericho Turnpike west of Jamesport. Please let's just all get along!!!! But if you feel the need to anonymously post your negativity toward the Home of The Braves please remember, we don't like you either and ESAD

Not big on looking back or living in the past. Nobody cares about last year.

Will it be the same two or three teams fighting it out for the county championship? Will there be any surprises?

Nassau A: Syosset, Massapequa. Any other teams have a chance?

Suffolk A: Smithtown East, Northport, West Islip. Any other teams?

4 Nassau County Championships in 10 years and in those years lost out to eventual state champs and twice to the Lacrosse Dynasty of the past decade. Haters will hate no matter who or what because you are bitter about something.

In the past 10 years (10 years is a long time ago) only 5 teams have won multiple county championships.

West Islip - 7
Syosset - 4
Massapequa - 3
Smithtown E - 2
Farmingdale - 2

In the past 4 years ( a little more relevant) only 3 teams have won multiple county championships.

Syosset - 2
Smithtown E - 2
Massapequa - 2
* WI has 2 in the past 5 years*

In the past 3 years only 2 teams have won multiple championships.

Massapequa - 2
Smithtown E - 2

The past 2 years only 1 team has done it.

Smithtown E. - 2

Can Smithtown East make it 3 in a row? who has the best chance to knock them off?

Will Syosset be able to repeat? Who is the odds on favorite to knock them off.

Can Farmingdale or West Islip get back on top?

Pequa

The fact that someone is asking this question shows the lack of quality among even the stronger HS programs. If these programs are bringing up "a crop" of 9th graders HS lacrosse is really watered down. There are very few if any 2019's who would start on the top 2018 club teams. Forget about starting on the 2017 or 2016 teams.

That snide question from a guy trolling this site? What didn't you like about his post? Is it that he didn't attack anyone?

[lacrosse] off troll, go back under your rock you. I guess your team will not be competing for a championship this year. You are a [lacrosse].

the better HS programs that bring up freshman do it for a variety of reason, kids get better practicing against better players, better practice coaching, experience that will be needed down the road and keep the team "better" for years to come and in some cases the freshman help the teams win that year.

Maybe if I started drinking I would be able to figure out what you are trying to say.

A public HS team is not a club team. Saying no 2019 could play on a 2018 club team holds no weight. Although I think a few certainly can. I am not sure if the question asked is from someone who Just wants to know which school has the best 2019 class (if so please go on the 2019 thread for that) or If it is truely if Freshman will find time on varsity.

Personally, I think there are a lot of freshman across the island who will get play. Some in top towns some not. Remembering (what many hate to hear) 4 towns all have returning 2019's to their varsity teams from last year. I know you will say not the elite schools but experience none the less and All with playoff experience.

I disagree now that I think about it. A 2019 can play on a 2016 2017 travel team especially if he was the only one. You are not talking about a team of 2019's verses a team of 2016 2017 but a well place player can play. Especially whe surrounded by experienced players.

St Anthonys and Chaminade coaches were absolutely brilliant. I'm talking genius. Starting a club team and make a small mint each. But here is what isn't talked about. They brainwashed the parents. And the parents had no idea it was happening. Hey Joe Parent, don't you want to be associated with a winner? So what if you son is on the C team. You can still stand under our tent, and feel good about yourself. So what if we aren't going to promote your kid. He can still play in summer tournaments. Who cares that there are no college coaches watching? Who cares that the coaching is sub par. Wear our apparel and you too can "feel" like a winner. Over a decade of that thinking and here you have St. Anthonys and Chaminade. If you have been around the lacrosse block a few years, ask yourself this. 15, 20, 25 years ago what parent in their right mind would send their kid to a private school to be 3rd, 4th, 5th string? To be one of 8 goalies? To get cut because 100 kids go out for the team? And pay thousands of dollars on top of that? A travel team mentality now rules the high school lacrosse world. This isn't about their kids. I know of kids that would be stars on their public high school team only to be cut by one of the Big 2. This is about the parents and puffing out their chests that there son goes to a winner. Not plays for a winner. Goes to a winner. Well played directors. Well played. And as an added bonus you get the arrogant MC telling everyone which kids suck and will never play. Only in America. LOL

Thank you for this totally original, never been said before post! let me cut you off before your next few insightful posts. HS coaches who also coach summer teams are bad, daddy coaches are bad, Donald Trump does not like illegal immigrants, anonymous posters are really tough people and you think your kid should have been made the express A team

MC kid was cut from WM which is why he went private. Publics beat privates many times. Anyone who buys the argument that private is better at lacrosse just doesn't go to a good public.

teams like those two have half the team who don't get on field. Then the parents go around saying that their kid would be a star if they stayed in public school.

The fact that someone is asking this question shows the lack of quality among even the stronger HS programs. If these programs are bringing up "a crop" of 9th graders HS lacrosse is really watered down. There are very few if any 2019's who would start on the top 2018 club teams. Forget about starting on the 2017 or 2016 teams.


I disagree now that I think about it. A 2019 can play on a 2016 2017 travel team especially if he was the only one. You are not talking about a team of 2019's verses a team of 2016 2017 but a well place player can play. Especially whe surrounded by experienced players.


I believe the post said "start" not just "play " on a "top" club team not just any "club" team. The post said there are "very few" it did not say none.

I agree with the poster as he was responding to a post that was asking "what programs have the best crop of ready for varsity 9th graders". By using the word "crop" he was implying many players. If the top HS programs on the Island have to bring up a bunch of 9th graders the programs are in fact watered down.
There are very few 9th graders who would "start" on the 2018 91 A Team.

Thank you for this totally original, never been said before post! let me cut you off before your next few insightful posts.

All these posts about the question yet no answers to the question.

Are there any teams likely to have 2 or more freshmen playing up on varsity?

MC kid was cut from WM which is why he went private. Publics beat privates many times. Anyone who buys the argument that private is better at lacrosse just doesn't go to a good public.


I highly doubt the kid was cut. However, if he was then shame on the coaches. If true that he was cut (which I doubt) the coaches probably cost the team a championship or two. He is by far the best player to come out of that town in the past 20 or 30 years.

Over the years Chaminade and St. Anthony's have had great players from towns that have strong lacrosse programs as well as strong academics. Maybe, just maybe they choose to go to a Catholic School for more than just lacrosse. Kids from Massapequa, Syosset, CSH, Huntington, Ward Melville, Smithtown, Garden City, Manhasset etc...

As for the question of being better for lacrosse. I would ask, over the past 10 years what schools have produced the most NCAA Devision 1 All Americans? The only public that I can think of that would even come close to Chaminade and St. Anthony's would be West Islip. Garden City is a great program but I am not sure of even GC comes close.

There are a lot of great public schools with great lacrosse programs. I do understand why some on this site harbor such animosity towards the privates.

Rumor has it that Express was created to give the kid a place to play after he was cut from his own town.

Re: High School Lax Boys - 02/05/16 03:28 PM

The best players should go to private if they want to. All for school choice. It's the parents of the kids that aren't elite that are the problem. They'd rather have their kid never see a minute of playing time to be on a winner, versus being an intricate part of their public school team or even a lower private school. It's the parents' selfishness and egos not the Directors being pointed out. The sheep willingly follow.

The post said 20 - 30 years. Can't think of many in the past 20 years and certainly not any in his generation the past 10 years. Did you know that Jim Brown is the best lacrosse player to ever come out of Manhasset? How far back do you have to go to even find one player from WM who would be considered an elite college player? By the way, I think there is a freshman at GT who will be an All American at some point.

Funny how a town that boasts about their "One Town team" also wants to boast about cutting a kid from the town (not sure if true). How ironic that the best player on their best team in the past 20 years is not even from the town. Surprised they didn't recruit Rob Pannell as well to come play for them. Who knows, maybe they did.

Re: High School Lax Boys - 02/05/16 08:46 PM

why? because they chose to go to private /catholic school doesn't mean they are the best from each community. look at Chaminade. you mean to tell me that the best GC and Manhasset players chose Chammy? ridiculous

Well said about the "One Town One Team" from the previous poster.

MC's kid was not cut from WM. Express was not created because he was cut. 3V did not allow him to play with them since he wanted to guest play with others, so his father started Express. You get better when you play with the better players. He was one of the best players to come out of 3V. No one can dispute that. There are many great players that came out of 3V.

You can say what you want about Express. If you don't want to pay the $ for the training, exposure, team practices, very competitive tournaments, and connections, then don't. That's up to you. Not sure why so many people care public vs private, club vs town. Every parent does what works for his family.

Missing the point. It's now what's best for the family for junior to sit on the bench at Chammy or St A's? It's what's best for Dad, feeling like a winner. Let your kid go where he is going to play. Stop with those two schools being an extension of 91 and LIE. You bought the sales pitch, but there are going to be hundreds and hundreds of kids who's high school lacrosse memories are going to be clapping as the elite players "play." Sure your son will be in the year book team photo. But is this now what high school lacrosse is supposed to be? Let's get back to some semblance of perspective and maybe just maybe kids going into their senior year will commit to where they will play for the following four years, versus in the 9th grade.

I know I'm missing the point, what is your point.

What is it, just come right out with it. I read this as a kid (or a few) going to Chammy or StAs should have stayed home. If that is not what was meant clear it up, I have ADHD to many moving parts. Please clear this up or move on.

Well, I take it that way. Kind of like the kids think they are stepping from pal to elite travel by going private. Only, it has been demonstrated in multiple instances that this is not the case. If you are a good player, and have any sense of community pride, stay home and help lift your own program instead of spending all that time and $$$ to go private and ride the pine.

The post said 20 - 30 years. Can't think of many in the past 20 years and certainly not any in his generation the past 10 years. Did you know that Jim Brown is the best lacrosse player to ever come out of Manhasset? How far back do you have to go to even find one player from WM who would be considered an elite college player? By the way, I think there is a freshman at GT who will be an All American at some point.

Funny how a town that boasts about their "One Town team" also wants to boast about cutting a kid from the town (not sure if true). How ironic that the best player on their best team in the past 20 years is not even from the town. Surprised they didn't recruit Rob Pannell as well to come play for them. Who knows, maybe they did.


Well said about the "One Town One Team" from the previous poster.

MC's kid was not cut from WM. Express was not created because he was cut. 3V did not allow him to play with them since he wanted to guest play with others, so his father started Express. You get better when you play with the better players. He was one of the best players to come out of 3V. No one can dispute that. There are many great players that came out of 3V.

You can say what you want about Express. If you don't want to pay the $ for the training, exposure, team practices, very competitive tournaments, and connections, then don't. That's up to you. Not sure why so many people care public vs private, club vs town. Every parent does what works for his family.


Missing the point. It's now what's best for the family for junior to sit on the bench at Chammy or St A's? It's what's best for Dad, feeling like a winner. Let your kid go where he is going to play. Stop with those two schools being an extension of 91 and LIE. You bought the sales pitch, but there are going to be hundreds and hundreds of kids who's high school lacrosse memories are going to be clapping as the elite players "play." Sure your son will be in the year book team photo. But is this now what high school lacrosse is supposed to be? Let's get back to some semblance of perspective and maybe just maybe kids going into their senior year will commit to where they will play for the following four years, versus in the 9th grade.


I know I'm missing the point, what is your point. More specifically are you talking 2019 again or is it 2018 ( because 2017's is just crying over spilt milk at this point, but then again some do dredge up the past, really talking about Jr.). What is it, just come right out with it. I read this as a kid (or a few) going to Chammy or StAs should have stayed home. If that is not what was meant clear it up, I have ADHD to many moving parts. Please clear this up or move on.


Well, I take it that way. Kind of like the kids think they are stepping from pal to elite travel by going private. Only, it has been demonstrated in multiple instances that this is not the case. If you are a good player, and have any sense of community pride, stay home and help lift your own program instead of spending all that time and $$$ to go private and ride the pine.


So you say to stay at your public school with the kids baggy pants and backward baseball hats etc..etc....instead of attending a school with strong religious and community based principles and rated as one of the top 50 athletic programs in the nation and the #1 athletic program in NY State. Stop with your nonsense.

No, that's what you say! My kids public education and top rated athletic program is just fine, evident by the stellar programs he and his peers are committed to attend. Oh, and he only wears Polo clothing. Love seeing him look sharp and rock those AP exams! Hek, he my even enter college as a sophomore with all the AP and other college level offerings he's taking advantage of. Life is good!

So your position is that only at Chaminade do elite players get most of the time? Have you ever watched GC or Manhasset or any other top, competitive program? They have their stars and they leave them out their most of the time. You live and play in a top district and that is what you will be confronting. Not everybody gets a trophy.

Well there you have it. We finally get to the real issue. Dad feels guilty he brought his family into a non-lacrosse town with derelicts in the school system. So now he can feel good about himself that his son goes to a winner and hangs out with kids he wouldn't otherwise in his lower middle class community.

I attended a public HS and State University as did my wife. Our children go to public school as well. I could care less where other people send their children to school or where they have them play lacrosse. Do what you believe to be best for your children.

Why do some of you have such animosity, why the resentment, why such bitterness regarding the private schools. Why do you call their lacrosse teams "All Star" teams? Why do you refer to their clubs as "elite" clubs? Do only the "best" players from each town attend the privates? Do you realize how petty and foolish you sound? Why do you care where other parents decide to send their children to school?

As far as lacrosse goes, I think West Islip and maybe Garden City are the only public schools that even come close to St Anthony's and Chaminade over the past 10 years. If you are looking at what schools best prepare the kids for college lacrosse I would say only West Islip can compare with the two privates. What other school have put out a significant number of D1 All Americans over the past 10 years. I have seen the term "elite" used too liberally, I would define a D1 All American as "elite". I would not use the term to describe a kid who plays for a club team.

When picking from a pool of over 100 vs maybe 45 in a large lacrosse town, c'mon, we know where the odds are stacked. Plus you have the two major club teams as a feeder system. Stop with the nonsense. Chaminade has kids commuting from all over the Island including Suffolk.

Also ironic the "best" player from the town was unable to lead Maryland to a National championship!


Which 3V player won a national championship? I truly don't know of any. No sarcasm here.


I think there was a three villages kid won a national championship at Tufts.

maybe, just maybe, people send their kids to those schools for reasons other than lacrosse and the kid happens to play lacrosse as well. Would you also be surprised if it were the kids themselves that actually want to go to those schools and not just for lacrosse.

Wishful thinking but in reality it's the parents decision in my guess over 90 percent. I know one kid who goes to catholic school and would be a pretty good player for his public school team but will only be a number for their team. And if he wanted to switch back to public school they won't because the parent has too much pride to let it happen and the son will pay the price. fair no but reality.

I know of two kids who would have played for their public HS but went to Chaminade and were cut. They both stayed and both kids have told me if they knew before going to Chaminada tthey still would have would have gone, they loved the school. As a parent I wanted my son to go to Chaminade but he said no, he wanted to stay with his friends in public school (and he plays for Express) so every case is different and unique.

I can't even imagine how difficult it is going through life as bitter as some of you people are. The amount of energy wasted carrying on about how public schools are better than private schools. The bitterness directed at kids who play for 91 or express. The gloating when St. A's or Chammy lose a game is pathetic. Some of you are deeply troubled and in need of mental help.

After its all over, an 18 or 19 year old doesn't want to admit a mistake. So the kid has to miss out on HS lax because of people (parents mostly) not being realistic about their kids situation. A shame.

Our HS

Our High School coaches were absolutely brilliant. I'm talking genius. Starting a club team and make a small mint each. But here is what isn't talked about. They brainwashed and coerced the parents players. And the parents had no idea it was happening. Hey Joe Parent, don't you want to be associated with a winner? So what if you son is on the B team or isn't one of our boys. You can still stand under our tent, and feel good about yourself. So what if we aren't going to promote your kid. He can still play in summer tournaments. Who cares that there are no college coaches watching? Who cares that the coaching is sub par. Wear our apparel and you too can "feel" like a winner. Over a decade of that thinking in youth through HS and here you have our HS program. If you have been around the lacrosse block a few years, ask yourself this what parent wouldn't want their kid to reach their full potential. Who would want to limit their kids experience and pay thousands of dollars on top of that? A travel team mentality now rules the high school lacrosse world (that is because some HS coaches want to consider it one and the same). This isn't about their kids. I know of kids that would be stars on their public high school team only to be cut by one of the Big 2 (no kid who gets cut would be a star). This is about the parents and puffing out their chests that there son goes to a winner. Not plays for a winner. Goes to a winner. Well played Coaches. Well played. And as an added bonus you get the arrogant HS coaches telling everyone which kids suck and will never play and which grades are good and which are not.

I know at least one kid who goes to Kellenberg and plays for the name express just to make sure their kid plays at Kellenberg. You are not talking one of the top HS around, it's very sad that the parents would drink the Kool Aid to play there.. Paying thousands to just play on the HS team and be only a number on one of their travel teams

Re: High School Lax Boys - 02/07/16 06:24 PM

How about a very good Chaminade kid (2018) that was cut. Guess he plays on the wrong club team. Somehow if he played for the Express, I'm sure he would have made the team. And like many parents too embarrassed to go back to public. So they say, oh well, at least he's getting a good education. But the kid wants to play high school lacrosse. Winners: 2 private High schools, LIE and, parents. Losers: the children.

Paying thousands to just play on the HS team and be only a number on one of their travel teams


I know several kids in certain town's who play for the HS coaches pay to play summer team because they are afraid not paying and playing will have a negatively impact them. Its very sad that the parents would drink the kool aid and pay thousands of dollars just to play on the summer team and only be a number on their high school team.

How about a kid that does not play lacrosse and has no desire to ever play lacrosse, has never heard of Jack Moran or Mike Chanenchuck yet goes to Chaminade anyway? there could be more to this whole Chaminade thing then just lacrosse

that is well put. one of the previous posters contended that since they have so many commute from various distance that it somehow enhances the pool of athletic talent. pretzel logic at best.

Hooray for those kids. Yes, plenty of kids that don't play sports at Chaminade. Thanks for the breaking news. Some other breaking news for you. Their parents don't even know this website exists. See, "back of the cage" connotes, Lacrosse. The "tip of the pencil" and "keys on the calculator" websites can be found using google search.

Calling someone "Mary" isn't a lacrosse-related statement; it's a sexist statement that has nothing to do with lacrosse. Ironic, no?

You can still stand under our tent, and feel good about yourself. So what if we aren't going to promote your kid. He can still play in summer tournaments. Who cares that there are no college coaches watching? Who cares that the coaching is sub par. Wear our apparel and you too can "feel" like a winner. Over a decade of that thinking and here you have St. Anthonys and Chaminade. If you have been around the lacrosse block a few years, ask yourself this. 15, 20, 25 years ago what parent in their right mind would send their kid to a private school to be 3rd, 4th, 5th string? To be one of 8 goalies? To get cut because 100 kids go out for the team? And pay thousands of dollars on top of that? A travel team mentality now rules the high school lacrosse world. This isn't about their kids. I know of kids that would be stars on their public high school team only to be cut by one of the Big 2. This is about the parents and puffing out their chests that there son goes to a winner. Not plays for a winner. Goes to a winner. Well played directors. Well played. And as an added bonus you get the arrogant MC telling everyone which kids suck and will never play. Only in America. LOL


maybe, just maybe, people send their kids to those schools for reasons other than lacrosse and the kid happens to play lacrosse as well. Would you also be surprised if it were the kids themselves that actually want to go to those schools and not just for lacrosse.


Wishful thinking but in reality it's the parents decision in my guess over 90 percent. I know one kid who goes to catholic school and would be a pretty good player for his public school team but will only be a number for their team. And if he wanted to switch back to public school they won't because the parent has too much pride to let it happen and the son will pay the price. fair no but reality.


I know of two kids who would have played for their public HS but went to Chaminade and were cut. They both stayed and both kids have told me if they knew before going to Chaminada tthey still would have would have gone, they loved the school. As a parent I wanted my son to go to Chaminade but he said no, he wanted to stay with his friends in public school (and he plays for Express) so every case is different and unique.


Why would you love a school with no girls in attendance? A lot of great schools with the opposite sex attending also. You ever walk around Chaminade, all males and a real creepy ambience.

There are a lot more than that one. They will play the kids on Express C over a good player who doesn't play club ball or plays for the wrong club. And they will finish 3rd or 4th in the AA this year!!

The fact that someone is asking this question shows the lack of quality among even the stronger HS programs. If these programs are bringing up "a crop" of 9th graders HS lacrosse is really watered down. There are very few if any 2019's who would start on the top 2018 club teams. Forget about starting on the 2017 or 2016 teams.


I disagree now that I think about it. A 2019 can play on a 2016 2017 travel team especially if he was the only one. You are not talking about a team of 2019's verses a team of 2016 2017 but a well place player can play. Especially whe surrounded by experienced players.


Nope. Not if a true 14 year old freshman. No way. Not on the elite club. The speed and size in those two or three years is big.

Stop! Thant cant be true. I have read many times on this site that if you go to Chaminade or St Anthony's you have to play express.

Dont get what your point is. What program can say over a 20 year span it has had 12 goalies go to play lacrosse at the level Chaminade has had. This is over just 8 years and 2017 goalies have not committed yet. I would say thats pretty impressive.

If you know anything Bates and Colby are damn good academic schools. But wait you think only if a kid goes div 1 it's worthy right. Those boys probably come out making more money then the other kids.

Typical Long Island public school response. Colby and Bates are two of the better academic schools in the country. Go ahead and keep dreaming about that 1/8 of an athletic scholarship to UMass-Lowell. That is what it is all about, right?

The point is the top public programs also commit goalies, as well as other positions to very good programs, not just Chaminade. It's always got to be a contest, Chaminade groupies constantly beating their chest that they are better, their kid's go to better schools, etc. I only see 2 (3 boys) nationally ranked top 20 universities on that list, if we are talking college rankings. Not putting down any of the others, they all have their own strengths/fit for the student-athelte,

There is no insult. The person listed goalies. I don't think there is another program that can come anywhere near what Chaminade has done in the last 8 years for goalies.

There are scores of public high schools on Long Island. The Red Cup guys only post about six to eight of them. How is recruiting going at Mepham, Valley Stream Central and North Bab? Stop it already.

The original poster contended that none of the backup goalies went to a school that is "brag worrhy." [sic]. Just noting that Colby and Bates are phenomenal schools. Perhaps those players did the smart thing and opted for excellent academic institutions rather than opting for Div 1 schools that aren't as well thought of. Of course, everyone can agree that it isn't about trying to win a national championship -- it is about getting a great education and using lacrosse for that purpose.

Better to wear a red jacket and have your son attend Colby than drink from a red cup and have your son attend Detroit-Mercy. But, it's ok -- you guys will never get it.

You grouped Mepham with valley stream and north Babylon? The only thing those schools have in common is their parents aren't on this site. You think those are the towns making fun of you for wearing your red jacket like you are on the team. Hopefully your kid has a little more class than you.

Oh yes. Because it is wildly classy to drink out of red cups in the parking lot of a high school lacrosse game and make fun of other adults wearing red jackets. Yep, that's class.

Typical Long Island public school response. Colby and Bates are two of the better academic schools in the country. Go ahead and keep dreaming about that 1/8 of an athletic scholarship to UMass-Lowell. That is what it is all about, right?



That's funny! Obviously you never heard of Syosset, Ward Melville, Smithtown, GC, Manhasset. Multiple kids going Ivy and top 20 in those program. Please spare us the baseless grasp at an insult, not working, biff.


There are scores of public high schools on Long Island. The Red Cup guys only post about six to eight of them. How is recruiting going at Mepham, Valley Stream Central and North Bab? Stop it already.


You grouped Mepham with valley stream and north Babylon? The only thing those schools have in common is their parents aren't on this site. You think those are the towns making fun of you for wearing your red jacket like you are on the team. Hopefully your kid has a little more class than you.

Oh yes. Because it is wildly classy to drink out of red cups in the parking lot of a high school lacrosse game and make fun of other adults wearing red jackets. Yep, that's class.


Not sure how your reading compression is , but not doing either of those things. The problem is , you think the same person is responding to you. Multiple people respond to idiots like you. I'm sure it gets confusing with someone with your limited capacity.

If you have good reading compression, do you read really quickly? Or can you read really small letters with ease?

What schools have the best off season program? What coaches have been using the winter months to best prepare for the upcoming season? What programs have put the time in to build skill, strength/fitness, and comradery? Who has used the time to implement and teach their offensive and defensive schemes? Will there be a direct correlation between off season preparation / team building and success this spring?

How will Smithtown West be this year?

Smithtown East will be tough but can they win three in a row?

Syosset does it too. They're called captain's practices and the coach is not "involved". That's how it's done at all the top programs.

True, the preseason is just that, a pediction. And the prediction is that based on prior performance of the team and individual players, Chaminade ranks below some publics. The WM game will be an interesting indicator, as they were not ranked in the top 20. It does matter, of course not to those who were snubbed!

Re: High School Lax Boys - 02/18/16 01:57 PM

WM not in the top 20 was not a snub i/m/o-my kid is on that team. The last few years they graduated several all Americans. Those kids were incredible, but now is the time for others to shine-or not...we will see if the team can play as a team and not just a team supporting a couple of all Americans.

Like previous poster said, Suffolk will be a really interesting year because all of the top teams are playing each other. So, northport, sme, smw, sachem N, connetquot and even Commack all have legitimate shot to beat each other up during the regular season (if I didn't mention your school, no disrespect, the teams i listed are the one's I am aware of, others may be just as strong).

I suspect that there will be no undefeated teams in Suffolk this year-which is great for parents watching the games, but probably not great for these rankings...so unlike other poster's opinion, I would not expect three teams in suffolk to be ranked in the top ten (perhaps top 20).

either way, I for one am looking forward to this season as compared to last season. Last season had only a few good games all year until playoffs. This year, all the big lax schools play competitive schedules with very few blow out games...

good luck to all your boys and their schools.

What makes this year different from the past 10 or 15 years? This is a two or three team league as usual. If things have changed is it because some programs have gotten stronger or is it that some programs are no longer dominant?

Every year we hear the same nonsense. Every year we hear how tough the league is and how any number of teams could win it. The reality is that every year there are only 2, 3 or 4 teams who can win it. That is not a knock it's the same in all of the leagues on the island.

Wow has the lacrosse world changed over the past few years. There are approximately 100 2019 verbal commitments. I would guess 95% have not played a Varsity game.

It looks like every single one of the kids play Club.
There are approximately 30 Clubs represented.
Sweetlax, Laxachussets, Big 4 HHH, and Edge are leading the pack. Express, Madlax, Crabs, 91 and some others are not far behind, all have multiple commits.

About 20 DI Schools have at least one 2019 commit. The usual suspects have as many as 13.

I would guess that 15 - 18 of the current Top 20 have at least one freshman committed and just about all of the Top 30 - 40 schools were actively recruiting the class of 2019 this past summer and fall.

You gotta be in it to win it. Crazy.

Not sure what you mean by saying "Last three years has not been any rivalry between these two teams...".

Personally I do not like looking to the past. I prefer to look at the upcoming season. Maybe look at a year or two as some of the current players were on the teams over the past two years. But, if you want to look at ancient history a more relevant time frame would be five years. Over the past five years WM and WI have played each other seven times.

West Islip has won five of the past seven games. The series is tied at one and one over the past two years. The only game that matters is the next one.

Several GC Juniors poised to make noise this year.
Seniors don't seem too imposing.
Also, 3+ Freshmen and 3+ sophomores on Varsity squad.


You sound like one of the Junior parents in our district.


Nope, Middle school parent just pointing out the obvious.
it will be a young but very good team.

GC football has had a lean 3-4 years
GC lax too been below the acceptable levels of years past
the girls in GC have been better of late

Agreed, with Syosset post

Well, at least there's something GC and Syosset parents can all agree on: they wish they could've afforded Manhasset.

GC football was 9-1 in 2015, if that's lean not sure what you consider FAT. But this is a lax discussion, I would ask this, who did GC play last year? Non conference and conference. Out of state and in state? Look it up.

This is high school not D1. Nobody does what you're asking.


Syosset does it too. They're called captain's practices and the coach is not "involved". That's how it's done at all the top programs.

The good distinct do. Mine has been practicing 1-2 times a week since early fall.

YES - lacrosse goalie is the most over rated position in any sport, kid only has to have nerves of steal and high tolerance for pain, the best goalie is usually the guy with the great defense in front of him that make the offence take bad shots. The game is won and lost on face offs and on ground balls (possessions), the only way a goalie has a huge outcome on a game is with his clears and directing his defense a good shot will beat a good goalie every time.

One of the dumbest thing I've heard on here. If one goalie makes two saves he shouldn't and the other goalie doesn't make two saves he should, it's a game changer. And by the way, the best goalies don't get hit with the ball that often. Unless, of course you are talking about box lacrosse. So this nonsense of just throw someone in there with balls of steel who can make outlet passes, save it for the other parents you're drinking out of red cups with, in the parking lot. Anyone who knows anything about lacrosse can pick out a really good goalie and a really bad goalie in two seconds. And by the way, the elite goalies make the defense in front of them even better, directing the defenses play. So how does that ability make them overrated? Full disclosure, just in case you think my son is a goalie. I coach varsity HS lacrosse and my son played attack. Maybe attack is overrated, where all they have to do is possess the ball and hit your stud midfielder for a goal. That's pretty absurd too.

No clue about the game whatsoever. Goalie and faceoff are 2 most important players on the field. Goalies need fast hands, fast feet a knowledge of the game. Greater than any player. Goalues hurl themselves in harms way with less pads than other players on the field. They don't wear shoulder pads or elbow pads. Their gloves are useless. A lacrosse goalie faces shots from multiple planes. High to low, low to high, etc. All while being screened. The lacrosse goal is 6x6 versus a hockey goalie which is 3x6. Hockey goalie faces shots from one plane off the ice and they wear more pads than the stay puft marshmallow man. Players in lacrosse have more hold and control of the ball than ever before and can do more than any other sport with the ball in their stick.

Why do you think there are so few goalies as early commits. Coaches don't dare rush to pick one. Goalie is like a fine wine needs to fully mature and develop before being chosen. You can take an athletically gifted kid and put a long pole in their hand and they will excel. Now put a goalie stick and they wouldn't have the faintest idea of what to do. Arch a 5 step or a 7, high arch low arch, pipe to pipe movement, clears, defensive sets, the offensive plays of the other team, calling slides 1st and 2nd all while trying to stop a ball moving at over 100mph.

Thank you, Coach. Very well said. As the parent of a goalie, I would like the poster of the low lacrosse IQ poster to stand in front of the cage during a varsity lacrosse game. You would never last.

2012 West Islip Championship team wouldnt have gone anywhere without their goalie who is now a 4 year starter and Captain at Brown. Ask anyone who played on that 2012 team and they will tell you to a man that he made all the difference and he was their best and most important player. Yes I agree a superior team can overcome a mediocre goalie, but an outstanding goalie can make a good team a great one.

I will have to agree with you on that, coming off a 2x county championship. Lacrosse is so dynamic. So many factors involved. Sometimes it all comes together due to teamwork and respect. Good luck to all the teams this season. Should be an exciting one! Who wants it?

The 2013 WM goalie was off the charts good that year. And was so good that he walked on to Cornell. All from how well he played as a senior. I posted before that you Can be competitive with a bad goalie but you will never win championships without one. IMHO

Like was said earlier it takes time for a goalie to develop because being a goalie takes much more than being a good athlete. There is so much to being a goalie and unless you have played the position you will never know what it takes to be a goalie.

Re: High School Lax Boys - 03/01/16 11:45 AM

It is a team sport. Having a stud (at any one position) will not help you win anything if the rest of the team is weak. If you have a team filled with good players then a great player or two will put you over the top. It can be a super star goalie, a dominant fogo, a stud defender it really doesn't matter. Insert a stud into a team of solid players and it puts the team over the top. I think a team can be competitive without a solid goalie but it certainly helps to have an above average guy between the pipes.

I don't understand. Are you saying the goalie was bad ? He was more than adequate. They had a lot of firepower but he stepped up in the big games. Lost 7-4 to Chaminade, played great in 6-5 3OT loss to GC, and played good enough to beat SE 13-12 in LIC. Great defense helped.

West Islip - Athletic, hungry and gritty with quality coaching.

Sachem North - Dark horse to be in the final four.

Just my opinion and curious as to who agrees. If a freshman is good enough to make Varsity I hope he is given a fair shake. If he is better then a junior or senior and has been putting in the effort over the years and outplays others he shouldn't be held back..its varsity lacrosse and the best should be the ones to play and not be grade based. So you would hope coaches don't make that mistake and give in to pressure from older kids parents

I am going thru this right now, my son is a 9th grader and has been told he will start varsity this year. He has been working out with them last summer, fall and this winter. It seems like most of the kids are ok with him playing, but it seems the parents are the ones who have the problem. I will be sitting at the opposite side of the bleachers during each game.

Most coaches are not playing scrimmages to win. They are trying out different combinations of players to see who will eventually start. What works, what doesn't. If you think a scrimmage score is a strong indicator of team success, you are dead wrong!

I would offer up not to distance yourself like you do in club. Embrace your son's spot on the team. There may be times you scratch your head at your sons play and others, it happens. The good thing is the kids embraced him, if that is so then the majority of the parents will. Please don't alienate yourself from them and the total experience. You may not live in the same town as your club teammates. You do in Public HS. Enjoy the ride and good luck this season

Re: High School Lax Boys - 03/04/16 05:22 PM

My son was brought up in 9th grade to varsity. It was a great experience for him. Be proud of his accomplishments. As a parent I felt very little animosity from other parents. The only negative I really saw then and still see now is that some other players were and are overlooked by coaches always thinking of the next year and developing new young talent all while there are talented kids sitting on the bench. Actually develop is the wrong word.. if it had not been for the youth program and summer travel my son has not learned a thing ftom his current coaches. Some parents use the threat to take their 8th grader to catholic school if the coach does not bring him up next year. Unfortunately for our high school program the head coach buys in to this nonsense and let's a few parents dictate the varsity line up. Hopefully this year it will all work out.

not going to mention any high school names. but thanks everyone for the great advice, except for the one about my son being roasted. every kid will have his good and bad moments. it will just be that his will be more dissected than the other kids.

I am proud and will be his biggest fan. I just wont be dealing with any BS from other parents. I will let my sons play speak for itself and hopefully everything works out. He needs to step up and if he doesn't than it will be a learning experience

How many of you really think parents use the threat of Catholic schools to coerce varsity hs coaches. I call BS. I see more and more when one of the better players is even considering a catholic school they keep it to themselves.

It cant be both can it, Can it? Is one worse than the other in ones eyes. I can see a family in either situation just wanting the best for their child. Since we are not present during the conversations we cannot really say what was said... but I am sure, Just like most things in life it is all in the delivery and tone.

Using the threat of "going Catholic" doesn't seem to make much sense. If your kid is such a stud then you would assume he'll be a varsity member as a sophomore, whereas the two best Catholics don't have a habit of bringing up either sophs and certainly no freshman.
I suppose you can make try it but if this works then the HS coach is not the sharpest knife in the drawer.

Re: High School Lax Boys - 03/04/16 07:17 PM

Really disagree with that whole concept. Varsity HS sports are not just win programs. Just the opposite. The proof is how many varsity programs struggle and the coach stays? When was the last public HS coach fired for not winning? If the Junior or Senior are equal to the Frosh they play, the freshman gets some varsity game time. Varsity HS sports are there for character building and bonding. Not a single program is "win or else" in HS. Not in NYS anyway. Sorry but NYS public schools are just not like that. Texas maybe but not here.

You are correct. Nobody cares except the kids playing aND their parents, and SOME coaches. Athletic director could care less. School board could care less. They only become interested if the team is winning and in playoffs. Nobody losing jobs. Best kids should play, however if it's a freshman, there better be no doubt!

This policy of not taking up upperclassmen is due to the fact that they don't have to. You parents that keep sending your kids there in droves have caused this. Believe me if there were 40% less kids going out for the team, they would cherry pick the best underclassmen in order to compete. But now they would rather have a policy of not, as to not have to hear the complaining of why one sophomore was brought up and another wasn't. Has nothing to do with what's best for the program or the child. They can be fat and happy and not have to even look at players until they are upperclassmen. So to the parents who complain about this policy. If you have an underclass superstar and want them to play on varsity early, stop trying to change or merely complain about it. Vote with your feet and show us just how unbelievable little Johnny is somewhere else.

Ditto that in Syosset we wish the whining parents of our sophomores would beat feet to the Catholics. These parents look through rose tinted glasses rather having them evaluated by the coaching staff but that is what happens when daddy coaches his little boy and can't manipulate the situation. One would've thought winning a Nassau and LI Championship would give the staff some credibility but the squeaky wheel gets the grease and the other kids get the shaft.

It will be hard to get used to watching Sayville play without Coach D on the sideline. He instilled confidence in the boys that carried through to real life. Let's hope we get off to a strong start to the season or it could be very difficult to endure. Good luck.

Your kid must be really good or the varsity team is need of players because of school size. How do the coaches move up a kid in 9th grade to varsity unless they are a week hs team. How did the base his level of play? Did they base it on middle school games. If your kid deserves to be there then great. I've seen teams move up kids to varsity and play a position other then what he plays. The reality is that there are kids that are clearly better at the position then the kid they brought up that are kept down. Number one it's not fare to the other kids that are true to that position. Looks like varsity is doing a favor to someone. Go sit in your corner. You know the truth. You do for me I do for you. If I'm wrong then I apologize but I think this guy is full of it. Good luck to your son. Hope all goes well for him and he deserves to be there. One thing be true to yourself and don't sugar coat it.

Lets start off by saying you do owe me an APOLOGY. Damn that was very negative and nasty. My son earned his spot by playing with the varsity all summer, fall and winter. He is talented(not bragging or saying he is the best, but he holds his own.). Also he is playing his true position and the players on the team have been the one who have been backing and supporting him. NOT once have I ever spoken to the coach or did a sell on why my son should be on varsity. If anything I told him I want him to develop and where ever he fits is where he will be and we will be fine with it. No sugar coating and I am always true to myself and everyone else.

I by no means are mad because my kid didn't get brought up I'm just saying what does that tell the other kids on the team. I'm not worried about my kid honestly. Could care less. He can make any A team out there. It sends a bad message to the rest of the kids.

It's not about the kids being moved up. It's about the politics. What this guy is saying isn't out of the ordinary with the hs coaches. I believe he said good luck to the kid. I wish him all the luck also but call it what it is. Why would they pull a kid up, play him out of position rather then bring a kid up that is good at that position. Seems to me that it makes no sense unless someone is doing someone a favor. Anybody have an answer?

Out of position? how many kids get recruited at one position and play another in college? any doubt Myles Jones could have played out of position and still be the best player on his team at ssdm or lsm? kid at Manhasset was a great attack but they needed him at mid field so he played "out of position". got to get your best players on the field

So you are telling me a kid goes up to Varsity switches position but is not better then the kids there at the same position? So why would he switch positions in the first place?

Good coaches identify talent and put the puzzle together. Sometimes that means having a kid switch positions for the good of the team. It is a coaches job to put kids in the position that the coach believes will help the team the most. If a kid wants to play attack but the coach says "we need you on D" then the kid plays D. If the player does not want to switch positions then maybe they don't get playing time.

Is there any reason to assume the freshman players are being brought up to play positions other than their own? This is Massapequa correct? Didn't they win States just 2 years ago? These 9th graders are only being looked at is my guess. Could be the future of this program down the line. Coaches know what they are doing in that town-
Maybe thinking long term.

Not sure why everyone is so concerned with freshman playing varsity, most all schools do, if i remember correctly, didn't Syosset have at least 3 freshman starting or at least have a big role on the varsity team last year?

If the coach deems necessary to have freshman play ahead of the upperclassman, should the people concerned take it up with the coaching staff and not here. I commend the younger players, it just proves they are trying harder and want it more than the others.

Nice try, but

Is my Freshman varsity player for East Rockaway likely to be as talented as your Fresman Varsity player for Pequa, Syosset, Ward melville--- Sorry, I doubt it.

playing at one of the powerhouse as a fresman is much more of a challenge and an accomplishment.

Wouldn't want such a positive role model as EWE! A$$!
Any Freshman, who can play above an upperclassman, IMO, is well deserved. Does not matter if it is a powerhouse or not.

Re: High School Lax Boys - 03/09/16 04:21 PM

That's exactly what I mean. I would bring up the kid who plays that position naturally then bring up a kid to teach him the position. Trust me he's not better then kids that play that position that are left down. People are missing the whole point. Great for a kid to move to varsity as a freshman.

Re: High School Lax Boys - 03/09/16 04:35 PM

It's interesting to read this stuff but people shouldn't judge a player solely on reputation. There are plenty of players especially on Long Island that based upon the team they play for or the coach they have campaigning for them you would think they were the next best player to play the game. Until side by side in an unbiased evaluation system you can never truly assess players. Now when you have a club team coach involved in a High School team good luck in trying to get unbiased and fair player placement.

Re: High School Lax Boys - 03/09/16 05:41 PM

Nobody is talking about an upper class man
A$$ it's about a kid that is in 9th grade getting pulled up to play a different position than he is use to playing when they clearly have kids at that position on jv that are better at that position the the kid they brought up. Is that to hard for you to understand. Why bring a kid up that's skilled at that position the bring a kid up that doesn't play that position.

Re: High School Lax Boys - 03/09/16 05:54 PM

the answer is simple, they are a better athlete and lacrosse player. There are MANY freshman players in college that played one position in high school and then went to college and the coach saw that they can help the team just by being on the field. If this is happening in college, why wouldn't it happen in High school. you want the best players on the field and sometimes an attackman is more talented than most middies and the coach puts him in that role because he can make more of an impact. Syracuse had the leading alltime scorer in high school running defensive middie his freshman year and now he is still running middie. Johns Hopkins top middie was an all American attackman in high school and the coach ran him at middie his freshman year and he is in his 3rd year and runs the top midfield line.

Bottom line- if a player is good, he can contribute more in a different role than someone who has been playing that same position but doesn't have the same skill set.

He can make any A team out there. It sends a bad message to the rest of the kids.


Is there any reason to assume the freshman players are being brought up to play positions other than their own? This is Massapequa correct? Didn't they win States just 2 years ago? These 9th graders are only being looked at is my guess. Could be the future of this program down the line. Coaches know what they are doing in that town-
Maybe thinking long term.


LOVE THIS POST!!! Coaches take an interest nw and see what ya got if it works out and they are a great fit its a win win. if it is not a fit you gave them a look and you showed the player and family they matter.

So if you have two kids that are both talented and are good lax players you would bring up the kid thats not a middie and play the kid at middie as oppose to bringing up the true middie thats also talented. Don't get crazy just using those positions as an example. So a team should draft a line backer and make him a running back or draft a running back. It's interesting to see how people respond to the question.

Enough with this. There are no set positions - you are either an offensive player or defensive player and that means you can be moved around. If you are an inflexible player intent on just playing one position and either only righty or lefty, bring some cushioning for the bench.

Re: High School Lax Boys - 03/09/16 08:58 PM

If I was a coach I would bring up the true middie as long as he is as talented as the other player that was bought up. These days there are plenty of kids that have played travel and are talented players. As long as it's not because of the kids older brother who played at that school or that the father donated the score board. I would want my son to get pulled up because they need him and not for any other reason. You guys know how hs sports are. I think they kid would feel better about himself because he made it on his own and not because of daddy. It's a hard call because what are the coaches basing his talents on. Not from middle school cause that's worse then pal. I'm sure they don't run around and go watch the kid play travel either.

Re: High School Lax Boys - 03/09/16 09:08 PM

its an obvious question you are asking. sure if both kids were at the same level then you bring up the kid that plays that position. but if you have a really good player at one position and he is more skilled than the other jv player then yes you bring him up. Also there are many players in the NFL that have been wide receivers in college and then switched over to defensive back because the coaches see the athletic ability and feel he is better than the other defensive backs that were at the tryouts.

Dallas Clark and ANTONIO GATES were line backers in college - JULIAN EDELMAN was a QB in college - as was Josh Cribbs, Hines Ward and ANTWAAN RANDLE EL - Dante Hall was a running back - Dustin Byfuglien was a defenseman in juniors but switched to right wing once he got to the NHL before switching back to D. smart coaches will figure out a way to get their best athletes and lacrosse players on the field.

Re: High School Lax Boys - 03/09/16 11:46 PM

I would agree with the athlete being better and changing position because he is a better athlete and also agree with the kid that is established at the position being brought up if your he is a good player at that position. I was wrong but why developed on if you have three good ones on jv. I'm just glad my son is working hard and when it's his turn he will be there. That I'm not worried about. I just think it sends a bad message to kids that play that position and to kids that have been on varsity for a few years. I know of kids that quit in their senior year because of stuff like this happening for the wrong reason.

Very good I like the response. As they were they better athlete coming out my bad but I didn't mean it that way. Trust me they are not looking at it in that way. I know the reason why but that's another story. Don't think it's fare to the other kids and to varsity players that are their. I hate to see kids quit anything. That's just me.

His son was there, one of the boys without the red helmet I bet. Teach Jr to get to the front of the line. It's lacrosse, not the spelling bee. Waiting your turn is for kids that don't hustle. Work hard to get that extra rep. Coaches notice scrappy players that have skills.

The ones without the red helmets are the freshmen and they are all trying out for the JV-B(freshman) team.

unlikely any are ready for varsity at this point (and cham doesn't do that with freshmen anyway)

For some reason I am inclined to doubt your lacrosse talent evaluation skills....... I think Ill stick with the extremely well respected and storied Chaminade tradition of turning out winning lacrosse teams and players........

Wow. So UNTRUE. They take the best of the lot no matter what color helmet and have years and years of winning to prove it. My son was one of those without the red helmet and made it his senior year and what made it even more special was the fact that he wasnt the only one and Coach M pulled them aside and told them they deserved to be there. Actually having a different color helmet allows you to stand out good or bad

Re: High School Lax Boys - 03/10/16 03:41 PM

Speaking of lacrosse talent what is happening with GC ? Heard they are going to be on the down swing for the next few years. Actually one of the Dads told me they could start season 0-6. Heard all 3 attackmen together weigh 200lbs wet. Coach P better figure it out or they will chase him out of town. At least he better get his house built (one of the dads doing a fine job for him) I am sure they will have all the excuses ready to go. Since they play a very very weak league schedule they will get their wins. Somehow it will end up being Chaminades fault

you are obviously a GC parent. leave Chamninade out of it. your agenda is so clear, I guess you have a kid who you think got overlooked or overcome and now you want to get a shot in . why pick on specific kids? the ploy of going after a specific postion is an old one. your kid play D or middie?

I find it hard to believe that GC is starting 3 attack that weigh an average of 66.7 lbs. also why would they weigh them soaking wet? that would add weight, why not just say they weigh a combined 198.3 lbs? After you were done counting red helmets at Chaminade did you drive by GC and watch them weigh in?

Nice feed of BS and you know it Your boy or boys either are the Red helmet groups Ask them when it's all done if and who made the team and how many Red helmets get cut
I'm just saying/ not spying could care less just an unofficial observation I had some time on my side and felt like watching For the senior father congrats I hope it's true every year
Just why do the red helmets get 4 rounds of drills and the non red only 1 or 2
I'm done this does not effect me in anyway so as I said Good Luck I just feel bad for the other boys

Love it!!! If your kid fought and fought until finally clawing his way onto the team as a senior I say hats off to him. 99% of kids in that situation would give up and move onto another sport. That tenacity will serve him well in the long run.

I cant wait to hear the bitching in another few years when your now freshman Varsity playing son gets cut to make room for a younger kid. You may say "best kids should play" now, but this will be the reality for some of you down the line. Do you really think you will be alright with that? It is embarrassing and sad to do to a kid who has been a hardworking teammate for 2-3 years.

hardworking has nothing to do with playing time, most talent plays, player that gives the team the best chance to win plays. Wow if a kid who started in varsity as a 9th grader gets cut as a senior that town will be really really good

Someone is sour....most likely any freshMan strong enough to make varsity will not be getting cut as a junior or senior. More likely that kid or kids will be the team leaders by that time. That's the whole point isn't it? Developing a core group for the future of the program. No coach will cut the hardworking players you mention as long as they are strong enough to contribute the team. Wins- that's what it's all about. This is HS not PAL

Actually my son has been on varsity for 4 years at a top program, started for last 3. He's a senior. Some of his friends have lost their starting positions to younger kids that may or may not be better. Last year Jr.s We're cut down to JV to make way for sophomores some who contriuted, others did nothing. It's gamble, but these kids are deeply hurt by some of the decisions made where a young kid may be good, but unproven in his ability to compete against top competition. I say let them wait! Another thing is that it's not special anymore when you have already been playing varsity for 4 years, just another day at the office!

The person had some time .......probably a hard working dad / mom or even a young man or women Wanted to relax chill down before going back to work or home...... Obviously likes sports !!! So now everyone is ripping him/ her apart for an unbiased comment What if he said he was a recruiter (maybe they are ione ) People stop by and watch games practices all the time it doesn't make them "creepy" It does make your thought process though ....I just hope all the boys whoever where ever get a fair shot to play Its a rough world out It is high school but they are still really just young men

Childish response .... I love the call 911 comment too OMG seriously the people reading these thing can't take criticism If you know anything about Chaminade practice Jv and Fresh don't even and Varsity doesn't practice right off of Jericho turnpike
It's not creepy scary or twisted Its a comment if they were there at all Maybe they just want to get you going And it worked that could be his hobby concentrate on the young men having fun and playing for their school Enjoy the day

For the most part, any freshman good enough to be brought up to Varsity on a competitive team is probably a D1 commit, soon to be a D1 commit or has the talent to be a very High D3 player. Without question, those kids are never getting cut and will be major contributors to their programs moving forward. These kids are usually big strong kids with equal talent, or very fast athletic kids. In almost all the cases they can compete. Will they take time away from D1 committed Seniors? Doubtful. Will they lead the team in the future? Most likely.

That's the whole point isn't it? Developing a core group for the future of the program. No coach will cut the hardworking players you mention as long as they are strong enough to contribute the team. Wins- that's what it's all about. This is HS not PAL


Actually my son has been on varsity for 4 years at a top program, started for last 3. He's a senior. Some of his friends have lost their starting positions to younger kids that may or may not be better. Last year Jr.s We're cut down to JV to make way for sophomores some who contriuted, others did nothing. It's gamble, but these kids are deeply hurt by some of the decisions made where a young kid may be good, but unproven in his ability to compete against top competition. I say let them wait! Another thing is that it's not special anymore when you have already been playing varsity for 4 years, just another day at the office!


For the most part, any freshman good enough to be brought up to Varsity on a competitive team is probably a D1 commit, soon to be a D1 commit or has the talent to be a very High D3 player. Without question, those kids are never getting cut and will be major contributors to their programs moving forward. These kids are usually big strong kids with equal talent, or very fast athletic kids. In almost all the cases they can compete. Will they take time away from D1 committed Seniors? Doubtful. Will they lead the team in the future? Most likely.


Is it true some very talented Chaminade freshmen last year, who DID NOT make the team, left the school, went back to there local high schools and played varsity there?

The ones without the red helmets are the freshmen and they are all trying out for the JV-B(freshman) team.

unlikely any are ready for varsity at this point (and cham doesn't do that with freshmen anyway)


Why would some freshmen be given Chaminade helmets during tryouts?


they weren't... more likely the kids played for a red team in the past. all stickers off the helmets.

maybe a small few might have had an older brother's helmet from cham but again, no stickers.

Creepy is using /," and ..... but not using a comma. And a recruiter has a role at an event same as a score keeper, ref or spectator where as all of them would be out of place at a practice / tryout.

My son played varsity in 8th grade and was 14 years old, good lacrosse town (played in county championship that year) he played in 1st quarter of games not at end of blowouts. each situation is unique based on team needs, players ability, maturity and physical development. I will never know if he would have developed better as a JV player for a year or two and maybe he would have but it is very hard to judge a kid a family or a coaches decision based on what you read on a web site.

.

You will see. This year there will be a 50+ point 8th grader, last year 30 point, two years before that 10-15. Don't care who the comp is and not in meaningless minutes. The pull ups are mostly need based, but that doesn't take away from the fact that the boys perform as asked. I doubt their opponents ever even knew they were 8th graders or still 13. Some of these kids learn early the key to winning is playing as a team player.

Ok, let me explain "creepy" to you....an adult who watches the Chaminade tryouts--not a father/mother/brother mind you, just an interested party (I am guessing). Then that adult comes on the BOTC the next day and posts about what he witnessed while driving past Chaminade on tryout day. So an adult person, with NO relations to any of the boys trying out, watches enough of the tryouts to comment about all he saw the day before? guessing either standing away from the action looking through the fence?
Ok, lets say maybe its not Creepy. But wth kind of life do you not have to do that?

Phenomenal. Amazing how Syosset parents downplay about losing in a scrimmage to West Islip this year when last year they couldn't stop chirping all season about outscoring Chaminade in a preseason scrimmage. Gotta love it.

Rocky Point beat Sachem East by a decent goal margin. Goalie and defense looked solid and the offense got a boost from a few freshman playing in their first Varsity game. We will see if they stay up all season or go back to JV . The three freshman combined put up at least 3 goals and five assists. (Two middies,one attackman). I think the Coach was surprised by their performance and has more young talent than he realized . If this team cleans up a few things they could have a nice year. I know it was only a scrimmage but it was encouraging to see the boys have some good success! Hope it lasts.

Clean, physical, fast-paced game. GC is better than expected. Biggest surprise is on the defensive end given the poles that graduated. St A's has deep talent, will be interesting to see how they match up vs. the Flyers.

If St Anthony's has such "deep talent" why were their 2nd liners pushed around by the 2nd liners on GC?

Re: High School Lax Boys - 03/17/16 04:45 PM

Ok it seems like most tryouts are over and cuts have been made. What is everyone's opinion on how long do coaches do evaluations before determining where a player is placed (JV or Varsity). If it's a small margin can a decision be made in one week. Any coaches on here please chime in. Do most evaluations go on for 1 week or 2. Once a player is delegated to JV are they given a chance to play Varsity?

I would think this is the case. You don't.

Assuming this comment was centered around Fresh & Soph you would think a new coach would have to see those Freshman vs those Sophomores against the Sr's and Jr's. Most notably in skill specific positions (F/O Goalie LSM Lefty Attack) but I think preseason takes care of that.


I also think it depends on a school, the top 5 or so schools per division east or West of 110 know who they have and who is coming in.

That said, any surprises of Freshman making Varsity over Soph (who will remain on JV) or any Fresh Sophs jumping the pecking order on the depth charts so far

ok so a coach has seen players during preseason play and has some knowledge of who is coming in. What about the evaluation of skill specific players. Does this take more time and drills that are done to put those players head to head in similar situations. Faceoff guys I think are easy. Head to head see who wins then game play. I think lefty attack and goalie are a bit more difficult. Unless there are specific drills set up and coaches watching just those players how would they be able to asses a goalie or a lefty attackman. If they played full field live games and put the players in to face same teams that would make more sense.

I think lefty attack and goalie are a bit more difficult. Unless there are specific drills set up and coaches watching just those players how would they be able to asses a goalie or a lefty attackman. If they played full field live games and put the players in to face same teams that would make more sense. [/quote


The top teams have coaches who are well aware of which rising players are coming their way. These guys have the players on their radar months even a season before tryouts. Come on let's be real. Pre season, winter practicing, the players on the bubble whether they are freshman or sophs- coaches have a very good idea who they are looking for and if a player is ready- waaaayyyy before tryouts begin.

Well, then he's competing on age in MD. I really hope this isn't a MD parent complaining about older kids... That would be rich! The fact is, most of that Hill team is 19, and many are PG's. I would guess some are even just about 20 or already 20. So I ask you? Shouldn't the holdback laden teams from MD be able to compete? NO. You see when you constantly play down, you crumble when you have to play on age competition. Same reason UVA, Hop and UNC are not dominating anymore. Many of their recruits are not panning out for this same reason.

Sorry but I have to challenge your logic here. The MIAA teams play against each other all season so they are not playing down at all, they are playing other teams that have holdbacks, reclasses and PGs so I dont understand where your constantly playing down comment comes from. If youre talking about club ball then your statement makes more sense but lets be honest, the MIAA is one of the toughest lacrosse conferences in the country. I think in this case The Hill Academy just happens to have an exceptional team this year and they are destroying everyone.

As for UVA, Hop and UNC, IMO UNC and UVA have serious coaching concerns, and HOP went to the final four last year and came within a buttend save of going to the championship game. I am not a fan of early recruiting but I think there is more at work with some of the bigger programs than just early recruiting. Come this May its a good bet that the final four will be represented by the usual suspects.

The MIAA has been won by a Catholic school 3 of the past 4 years and 5 of the past 10. Please don't lump Calvert Hall, Loyola and St Marys in with BL, Gilman and McDonogh in terms of holdbacks. Those schools encourage re-classing, the Catholic schools don't. They may have a few kids who are older due to academic issues earlier in life or a few who did pre-first but it is not the norm. Calvert Hall and Loyola also have players on the U-19 team who are freshman in college, so on age. When you play the Hill Academy you understand who they are. Many Post grads. Also, at this point in their lives 18 vs 19 really isn't that big of a deal.

Scrimmages are not an accurate indicator of success in the season. It's a chance for coaches to evaluate the whole team, and for the boys to shake the rust off! Syosset will be just fine

Just FYI - according to what I've read elsewhere, Hill has a player on the roster who had been on the Fall roster at Colgate (yes, that D1 Patriot League college program). I don't think I've ever seen anything like that in any sport but then again I don't follow other sports all that closely. Regardless, it appears to me to break new ground in the "anything goes" wild west of HS lax.

It was 4 to 3 Friars. Not sure how GC won the game? Friars defense looks to be very strong. It wasn't a true reflection anyway. At halftime they were doing drills. Have to say anyone in GC's Publuc school conference will be going against a very formidable opponent. Have a great season!

Oh this is enjoyable. Nobody cares about scrimmages except Syosset parents. They couldn't stop RAVING all year last year about how they beat another high school in a preseason scrimmage. Just keeping it real, man.

No genius because the Chaminade /syosset scrimmage was last year and Chaminade never "hosts". It's always held at Cantiague Park because 4-5 other teams are always involved in an all day 4-5 way scrimmage that the Syosset coach organizes. As a matter of fact this years scrimmage is today. Original poster is talking about a recent scrimmage and a different team. Would be nice if they would clarify what team they are talking about since they are making such a big deal out of it.

Clearly I struck a nerve tough guy. Is that the way you talk to the priests?
How about you keep your suggestions to yourself?? We'll all cheer just the way we want to. By the way, sounds like you're exactly the type of parent from Chaminade we all can't stand. Did your son get accepted to Regis? NO he did not!!! I guess he didn't have the academic strength... Have a wonderful day.

Is it possible that you are such a loser that you attend a scrimmage to cheer extra loud to try and annoy people. Time to get a life .

People can only annoy you if you let them. But I do agree that the parents on the opposing teams who have scrimmaged Chaminade so far this year were definitely more boisterous and louder than the Chaminade parents.

You have to understand that the teams playing Chammy is their biggest game of year......even a scrimmage. They want to go to work and tell their co-workers/friends that "we beat Chammy". You hear "my son got in game" and various other "we" statements. For a top team like Chammy its just another mid level team to use to get ready for season. Most of us Chammy parents are smoking a Cuban cigar and having a johnny walker blue

This really can't be a "Chammy" parent? If you really are, you sound like a huge tool! Do you really think anyone is so impressed with "Chammy" or your future pretentious Tool bag offspring? Teach your kid to be humble, it goes a long way in life! BTW Johnny Walker Blue is way over rated!!!

Reality is is that the guy is probably retired at 50, collecting a fat pension from the teachers or police/fire union contracts. He's playing golf three days a week and fishing on the others. If not he owns his own business, makes his own hours and writes off every dollar he spends as a business expense.

And you open the WSJ every day to learn 7% off your company is gonna be laid off. Off course you drink more scotch than you should.

All in all a great day playing against some very good competition and a crowd that enjoyed the games. It's so refreshing to see parents co mingling and praising each other's kids. This is the way we do it!

You know not who you're talking to. I'm not from the town that scrimmaged your son's team, if that's what your condescending, class shaming retort was referring to? Never drank from a red cup at any lax function in my life. No pick up here either, I only drive German. Please keep posting though, you continue to prove my point about the kind people you Chaminade parents really are.

Saw the end of the game in person. They ran on the field to their goalie like every other team does at the end of the game . Nothing more or less. No drama at all. Respectful game from what I could see . I thought both teams looked good. Saw Manhasset coaching crew there scouting . I believe they will be playing both teams in near future (Syosset in a tournament ). Wasn't under the impression this was that big a game for Syosset . They have beaten GC the last few years, no?

Dear Charlie and fellow members of the NCLOA,

I am very sorry to bother all of you with this. However, I just felt the need to do something and try and lend a hand.

This past Friday, on March 18, 2016, one of my current students and former lacrosse player at Copiague High School was tragically shot and killed by his friend. Supposedly the death was deemed an accident. Charlie, as you know, I was a Varsity Lacrosse Coach at Copiague High School for 13 years and I still currently teach there. The community is multi-cultural and the lacrosse players there do not have the backing and support as most high school players across Long Island. The boy`s mother was a single mother and he was her only child. She would come and visit me every Parent/Teacher Night to make sure her young boy was doing the "right thing."

Unfortunately, the mother does not have enough money to bury her son and a "go fund me" page was developed to help her pay for the funeral services.

Any help the Association can do or if any of you would like to donate even just a little, it would be much appreciated in the small town of Copiague.

Please even just click on the following page and see him and his mom. https://dm2.gofund.me/xbv9bkwk

Thanks guys, and remember to hug your loved ones today. Life is too short!

Best,
Kenny Berry
Proud member of the NCLOA

New coach, new players and a new offense. Things take time. No one is getting screwed. Connetquot is stacked. If Danowski was coaching they would still have lost. In two years when Connetquots studs are gone, it will shift. It has very little to do with the HS coach these days and more to do with the players' travel club coaches.

I still carry a lot of anger for the decision makers and those who stoked the fires of change. But, that won't help the team going forward. Coach Doller is not coming back, we have to move on as he has. Don't blame every loss on new coach, that's not productive or fair. If you value the impact Coach Doller had on the program and the kids, continue to support Sayville lacrosse.

Stop your peacocking it's a long season and GC was pretty (soft) and not that good. The D as well as the entire team needs a great deal of work to compete against the more competitive and physical teams.

I was not at the game but will make an assumption here. Islip has a very good faceoff guy , if he won the majority the cquot D is not as strong as there O. Cquot offensive is great but if a team can control the ball and have more offensive position they could be in trouble. Just guessing here.

Question what was GC football's record last year? Question what was GC Lacrosse record last year? Question what was GC baseball's record last year? And let's just throw BB in there too. Look it up and get back to me.

GC Boys Athletics Records last year:
Football 9-1 lost in playoffs
Lacrosse: Lost in Semi Finals
Baseball: lost in 1st round
Basketball: lost in quarter finals

Sounds like a REALLY bad season for all considered.

Last goal didn't count. Fantastic.
To be fair, Connetquot couldn't get rolling, but won ugly in the end. 8-6.
They beat Sayville and Syosset (scrimmage) easily, but had a tough time against a good Islip team.

Connetquot is NO powerhouse! They wI'll be put first round of playoffs. Their record last year was bc they played a very weak schedule, they were in leagues.
Sayville will struggle and yes it will be bc they have a new coaches, new offense, weak defense. The new staff just doesn't have a winning mentally. X and O are just half the battle.

I'm so very glad a few malcontents got their way and our dedicated coach was not retained. I'll make sure to tell you how happy I am for the change at the next street fair. You know who you are and so do I. You screwed our kids because you wanted to get your way.


is the football player still playing lax?


Yes, we have our full squad.


New coach, new players and a new offense. Things take time. No one is getting screwed. Connetquot is stacked. If Danowski was coaching they would still have lost. In two years when Connetquots studs are gone, it will shift. It has very little to do with the HS coach these days and more to do with the players' travel club coaches.


Very much on point with the last comment


Especially regarding Garden City.

GC lost again today. Like I said earlier could be starting season 0-5 before getting first win. Offense is pathetic. Someone needs to tell coach when you are losing and there is only 6 min left in the game you need to go to the cage not work the ball around 5 times before getting a shot. But then again he doesn't have the talent like in the past so he actually has to do some coaching. Going to be a long 3 years in GC before things turn around. Nothing in the pipeline.

GC will be just fine, but thanks for caring. And the pipeline is pretty strong as well. The JV is 2-0 and blew out SW today at their place.

16 saves by SW goalie sounds like GC was doing just fine on offense. Sounds like a disgruntled smoldering parent that never played himself with a kid on the bench.

I can be called a d-head at times, but my team is definitely not the loser. Just saying what I saw, probably one of the worst ref jobs ever. Where should I start.... not calling cross checks to neck, placing ball in opposing teams head at f/o, not that it mattered, refs were clearly looking for Pequa to win. Glad the better team did!

He will be doing a lot of crying to refs for a long time

For having a kid that graduated already, why do you care so much? You are full of it. Your kid just isn't seeing the field and you are bitter and angry. Over the long haul, GC lax will be just fine. That being said, the drain to Chaminade has certain implications on the field the magnitude of which few other schools have to deal with.

So lets blame Chaminade for losing. Typical GC parent blaming everyone else and making excuses. Well if Duke ND and Denver didn't get all the good recruits other Colleges would win too.
Just admit they are not good and teach them how to deal with it because it will be a long time before they have any real talent coming up. Thats what happens when deals are made behind closed doors at some point it all catches up to you . Unfortunately you have a coach that would rather yell and scream at the refs all game then coach. 0-2 and heading towards 0-5

Penn State
Penn State
Yale
JHU
Towson
Ohio State
Fairfield

Don't agree it was a payback as Mass won when it truly counted. This was NL. Let's see if SE can keep it rolling through LIC and States no easy chore.

I'm not the person to whom you're responding, but Garden City certainly does feel the largest "drain" to Chaminade. Other towns are certainly affected (Manhasset, Rockville Center, etc.), but it'd be tough to argue that any other program has lost more good players to Chaminade over the years than GC has.

Re: High School Lax Boys - 03/27/16 05:50 PM

Yes agreed GC loses its share of kids to Chaminade but how many are lax players. 4-5 are on Varsity team now tops and of those who are seeing the field 1 -2. But how many towns have the system in place that GC has starting at 6-7 yr olds. How many leave GC because of other factors like not getting a fair chance to play because of their last name. I heard it is so bad one kid actually is at St Anthonys. If you are willing to travel to St Anthonys from GC every day it must have been bad.

If you made a "huge mistake" then your son belongs in public school not another private. Then you would be making another "huge mistake". Obviously by huge you mean you thought your son was good enough to play sports there. Most parents know the work load before they send their kids and hope the sports side works out.

Re: High School Lax Boys - 03/27/16 06:39 PM

Come on you never heard of the Anti Chaminade meetings at people homes before decisions are made. Promises that little Johnny will be brought up to Varsity if he stays at GC fully aware that once the school year starts the kid is stuck because you can not transfer into Chaminade. Coaches telling the parents how important their kid is to the program. That is why the other kid is at ST Anthonys.

Quick question, If you have a kid in GC and you don;t send him to the Coaches winter "optional" workouts at the center and you want to use your own personal guy and you play for another summer team in 7th 8th 9th grade what are the chances you will even make the team in GC and if you are from GC you will know exactly what I am talking about. Also what is the cost of these programs and who is running them. Maverick my -ss

Many families send their sons to Chaminade and St. Anythony's for reason other than athletic playing time. If the kid is going to St. Anthony's it has nothing to do with lacrosse or another sport - it must have to be the academics. Nobody in their right mind would schlep that far for lacrosse.

Are you kidding me. There is only 2 reasons to go to St Anthonys and they are you live close by or you were recruited to play a sport. You do not go to St Anthonys for academics. Just look at the Building. When the Under Armour sign is bigger than the school name it tells you they are not about the academics

Or you are just making the whole story up which is the way I am leaning


He is good enough. But we know how "politics" plays into everything in life. Choose your club team wisely.


There are plenty of non-Express kids on the Chaminade varsity. Maybe it wasn't your son's club choice.

Where can I find the average SAT scores of St Anthnys and Chaminade? How do they compare to Manhasset or GC?

All you need to look at is where EVERY kid in the senior class goes after graduation especially look at where every kid goes from the lax team. EVEN THOSE WHO DON'T SEE MUCH PLAYING TIME.

Not saying there may not be smart kids at St. A's but the school is horrendous. You go there for sports or if you are in a less (far) than stellar district or if its the closest Catholic education and that is important to you--for any other reason you have made a relative mistake or are misinformed.

Ok ok enough . If your kid has the smarts I think St. Anthony's no difference in education than say Ward Melville , Smithtown , Sachem just say. Getting off topic lets talk about LAX not what school has better academics please ..

If the teaching is so great, why do half the kids have to hire public school tutors? I'm sure there are a few good teachers there, but the fact is most were not hired at publics, so this was the best they could do. Would rather my son go to a school where the teachers are certified. Sports are good there, academics, not so much. If so, they would have a decent amount of AP scholars, or an IB program, or a kid that places in a nationally recognized academic contest. These rarely, or never happen at ST. A, but do a regular basis at the better publics. Dem be da FACTS! St. A lax will not beat any of the better publics this year, and will loose badly to Cham, so why bother?

GC may have a few tough years ahead. Given their strength over the last decade everyone wants to pounce on them for a bad couple of years. I give them credit. No matter their talent level, good or bad, they always play a tough schedule and don't duck anyone. They always play some really good teams out of conference. Rather than sit back with an easy schedule and breeze through with padded stats and record they take their lumps but they get better as the season progresses.

I guess time will tell. the season will go on. If they keep losing this blog will get real interesting.


Many families send their sons to Chaminade and St. Anythony's for reason other than athletic playing time. If the kid is going to St. Anthony's it has nothing to do with lacrosse or another sport - it must have to be the academics. Nobody in their right mind would schlep that far for lacrosse.


St. Anthony's is not a good academic school. FACT!

Why the interest in the Catholic schools.. If your son is good enough to play in college they will get noticed . You don't need to play in the Catholic league. It's a two team league and the rest of the teams just fill out the schedule. Some parents know their kids would struggle being the big fish in the small pond so they go to the top Catholic school teams to get the help their kids need. Some kids have the ability to lead on their own others need to be guided. Not a bad thing. Just need to know your own kid

Re: High School Lax Boys - 03/29/16 11:07 AM

My kid goes to WM and plays lax and we are happy with our choice. Good school and generally competitive athletics. We didn't choose to live in the district because WM had a strong lax program, we chose because we liked the house, the neighborhood and the education the district provided...

We know people within the district that send their kids to chammy and St As...the families we know that have made this decision did so for may reasons, but mostly because they wanted the religious education and chose between the two based upon many factors including the commute their kids would make to and from. From what we have heard, both are excellent catholic schools with excellent academics and also happen to have strong athletic teams.

For the life of me I cannot understand why any of you need to insult either St A or chammy. If you are happy with your school (again, we are happy with WM) why would you need to put down another school or claim that academics aren't good? As far as strength of schedule for lax, both chammy and St A go out of their way to play tough competition out of league. In fact, I would argue-as a WM parent-that chammy has perhaps the toughest schedule around. They make a point to play all the top publics and many top baltimore privates.

Why do you care enough to come on here and put down either school? You really need to look in the mirror and figure out what in your life is so bad that you need to come on this lax site and talk about the academic quality of either school...

Also will say, we went to watch the chammy/WI game last saturday since WM plays both shortly. Parents of both teams were of course cheering and of course would complain about this call or that call, but in general, very respectful. Not any obnoxious people...well done parents.

for the St A people, i suggest you just ignore the obnoxious poster, as soon as he/she realizes you cant be bothered responding to stupid rants, the foolishness will stop...

Thank you. Excellent post. Also, thank you WM for sending the best players to come out of your town in the past 10 years to St. A's (boys and girls) and a girls coach. Enough with the venom, if you don;t want to send your kid to a catholic school don't send them.

Re: High School Lax Boys - 03/29/16 01:20 PM

If GC played a soft non-conference schedule like most teams. would you think they were great? Say what you will, but it's undeniable that they don't hide and are competitive in every game regardless of the roster. They won back-to-back state titles as recent as 2012-2013. It's impossible to win championships every year in any sport (Yanks, last World Series 2009?) As far as the 'pipeline' is concerned, their JV team hasn't been able to find a team that can come within 10 goals of them. You are terribly misinformed. It may be a bit premature to call for the demise of GC lacrosse.

But then again he doesn't have the talent like in the past so he actually has to do some coaching. Going to be a long 3 years in GC before things turn around. Nothing in the pipeline.

GC will be competitive in their conference because of the tough games they play out of it. I could name a few teams that play a weak schedule just so the do nothing coach can pad his wins. I guess they think no one sees what they are doing. The real shame is the team does not improve and the result is usually one and done in the playoffs. The idea is to make the players better to get them playoff ready. GC is one that at least gives their players the best shot.

Thir "town only" year round travel programs. the numbers are in honor of past residents/players. 32 does a better job of leeting the kids playu outside and together. GC's is stricter in term of play town only or you are out... as a result they lose a few of their better players each year.

Re: High School Lax Boys - 03/29/16 07:45 PM

The only way the "lets have all the good local players play travel together full time" thing works is if it happens organically. Meaning that it starts out from genuine and original interest from the boys and the families. It isn't likely to work if it starts from the top and is sort of forced on the community.

In many respects, having the kids play at different places can benefit the HS program. Kids learn from different coaches and teammates, and can stay happy and motivated. Also allows different kids to get more reps in some situations, instead of sharing time with future teammates.

Re: High School Lax Boys - 03/29/16 08:35 PM

Yes it is. You have to play for town team or else. Unless you are that good he NEEDS YOU not the other way around. In other words you have to line his pockets. Shame because it also allows so called coaches to tell your kids what position they should play when they are 8 and are stuck in that position for the rest of their time in GC. If he wasnt in it for the money then he would be honest with some of the kids and tell them they will not make the team before taking all that money in the winter from the parents and then cutting the kid. YES GC has cuts. I blame the parents for allowing it. Maybe losing a few games will wake them up. Playing a tough out of conference doesnt always make you better but will get you hurt. Lets see

The 8th grade early recruit (commit) had 6 & 4 in his first High School Game.
10 points in his first ever varsity start. Could you imagine what he would do against lesser competition.
He plays in Suffolk A, the toughest league out there.
His 8th grade club team would beat many of the teams in the league.

SE V HHHE
WM V Sachem N
Lindy v Floyd



west
Hen Hud v Pville
Yorktown v Mahopac (Mahopac lost to Nport by 2)


I think Calvert Hall scheduled the wrong Hills team. 19-3 ?, way to represent Section 11. I think Brentwood would have played it closer.


Suffolk A! Toughest league in the country.


The 8th grade early recruit (commit) had 6 & 4 in his first High School Game.
10 points in his first ever varsity start. Could you imagine what he would do against lesser competition.
He plays in Suffolk A, the toughest league out there.
His 8th grade club team would beat many of the teams in the league.


Exciting. How old is he?

North Bab is hardly top competition. His travel team plays tougher competition. Will be fun to watch Bay Shore play WM, Quot, WI, and the Stowns. Those are the tough ones!

C'mon man. It was against Longwood. They recruit half the team out of gym class. He is obviously good player, but putting up 12 points on Copaigue isn't something too brag about.

Worked out great for my kid. He did not play for GC and is at the college he wants to be at and playing ball. All good.

Like all towns certain people take control but in GC it is at a whole other level. But ask yourself why a few years ago when they started their Town travel A teams was it run by Maverick. Was it so the money did not go directly to certain people. Then when they realized the amount of money that could be made they made changes and called it GC 34. Very original considering Manhasset 32.

To be fair, Calvert Hall is a very good team. Extremely deep roster full of D1 commits. Not a good showing by HHW though.....

Re: High School Lax Boys - 03/30/16 04:07 PM

He's very good. I've seen him play for years. He's always been bigger than all the other kids his age. I get this early commit thing here. He played on national TV with Spallina's Orange Crush team. Tambroni isn't exactly taking a flyer here. He will be just like the other Irish Penn State commit from Syosset. But please stop with the Suffolk A talk. N. Babylon. William Floyd. Copiague. Brentwood. Lindenhurst. Longwood. Pat Med. Hardly Suffolk County lacrosse royalty. 6 and 4 against N. Babylon? He's going to be a star. But let's keep some perspective here.

Totally agree with most of this, but lets not degrade Suffolk A either. The top half of Suffolk A is as competitive as it gets.

Syosset has gone 4-7 vs. CSH since 2005. You can ignore the A-B-C distinction amongst nassau's best teams... surprisingly irrelevant in terms of outcome

Is it not the same guy ? Head Coach T.R., last year was N.H.who was there for years. Well he is nominally the head coach but maybe not running the team.

it was said earlier before the games started you can break the league down into 1/3rds. Top 1/3rd lights out (starters to bench through JV). Middle third lacks depth needs to pull up players. Bottom third gets kids from gym class with a few exceptions.

hey chuck wagon I don't have a kid at GC, Ive been listing games I thought are good or SMH at for about two years now. I add some commentary every once in a while. I don't discriminate I think I tell it like it is. Sorry if you don't like it.

now for facts, yes they will probably be 0-4 but tested and that will help come league. som,etimes you worry about national ranking sometimes you think about states other times you just need to get through league and LI.

Heck never thought Smith West would only beat Huntingtopn by 1. you never know that is why you play the games!

We already got a taste of the Syosset parent nightmare behavior preseason. They were screaming, yelling, complaining, whining, and were just plain obnoxious. This was at a scrimmage. A silly scrimmage. Just....yuck. How embarrassing for the parents who actually know how to behave from that town. You people have your hands full.

You talking about the BS about winning the Long Island Championship? Or the BS that SYO 4 game win in scrimmage two weeks ago? Maybe you are talking about the BS that JC has created the best program in Nassau County - so good in fact that the coach from Pequa went to SYO. You can bash them, you can make up whatever you want. 3 parents who think there kid needs more playing time is not "all the parents" looking to get rid of JC. And just because a previous SYO coach has a beef with JC and trying to create rumors and get him fired, doesn't mean parents want him out. Good luck this season wherever you are - if you're playing SYO, you will need it!

If it's an opinion on a kid you are correct . Kids should not be judged but if it is a fact about what team a kid plays for, where is the fault. Did you moderate when someone asked about USA kid when inquiring about Syosset. Be even handed in this and don't cave to the crybabies and carpetbaggers.

Are you joking. I am not the only moderator but I always try and protect the kids. Look up my posts. I can not review every post on here. I do my best and if you think I am picking and choosing you are 100% incorrect. I read the posts saw they were not saying anything bad about the kids and I did mention that.

Re: High School Lax Boys - 04/01/16 01:06 AM

I'm not sure who's posting this misguided information about JC. Could it be parents of kids not playing? Having 2 sons go through this program, I've might not have seen eye to eye with the coaching staff, but both of them did just fine. You see lacrosse is only part of your kid's future! Shouldn't education be very important. As far as the coaching staff goes they are united not divide! If anyone is to blame let it be NCAA that is allowing players (as early as 8th grade) to contact coaches therefore, verbal commitments are made. This becomes a problem for High School Coaches because those parents believe their kids should be moved up or starting. I have witnessed this first hand. You see, high school is like college in that you want to win at any cost. Are you going to deny a player who excels at football and lacrosse, the right to start because he chooses football over lacrosse? Should a player be denied a starting position because he hasn't decide early on what college is the right fit for him? Are you going to play an upper classman over a freshman who has better all around skills? [lacrosse] no people! If your kid can't handle standing on the sidelines tell him to go out and work harder! In college your not treated with kid gloves. If your kid can't take "harsh" criticism then college lacrosse is not for him! Here's a wonderful statement from a top notch, respected, D1 lacrosse coach that he gives every recruit's parents: I have an open door policy and you can come and talk to me at any time. There are only 3 things I want you to think about before you knock on my door 1-I think I know a little more about lacrosse than you do. 2- I'm going to be brutally honest with you. And 3 - I don't love your kid as much as you love your kid.
This is what your player faces in college lacrosse! If you think JC is tough then college lacrosse is not for them!

The problem in Syosset is not the NCAA or the program or the coaches but the helicopter parents. When the coaches can't appreciate how great there kid is then they will do all they can to find a coach who can
Might even mean finding another new school or change the club again
Unfortunately while these parents can't grasp reality the other kids get wind of what is happening and don't respond to kindly to people who try to divide their team
A few people in denial though will not be able to ruin a strong program

Why does everyone hate early recruiting?
It is not as bad as it seems.
Keeps coaches honest-High school-
Believe me High school coaches have all the power. In most towns you can not even state opinion without it effecting your sons playing time.
Why do you think high school coaches hate early recruiting-because they loose some of that power.
If a kid is an early recruit to a top 20 team- there is a reason for if-He is a good lacrosse player.
Everyone is saying early recruiting does not help out teams- Helped BU- early recruiting got them in top 20 in third season.
What is best for players and family is have playing field as even as possible. Early recruiting is helping that.
Perennial powers now have to compete for players -how is that a bad ting?
There will always be corruption- not all high school teams play the best players- there are friends, political connects etc. If you do not belive that then you are a fool.

Agree. Also, thank god there is a club circuit for the top players. Most of the HS Teams are weak. Yes, even in the Mighty Suffolk A Division the level of play is extremely poor. 9th and 10th graders all over the place. Coaching is weak and pace of play is very slow in most games. Make the conference smaller and allow for more non league games. The top two or three teams in each league a significantly stronger than all others. It is the same story every year.

How does the Nassau Girls Power Conference work? Could a boys power conference work?

Just a note to add, the Pequa coach went to Syosset because they pay better. Had nothing to do with coaching a "winner" had to do with coaching for $$. And he is a fantastic guy who every Massapequa kid loves. Big loss, but he went for money, which is just fine with everyone but Bernie Sanders supporters!!

Kids that verbally commit in 9th and 10th grade love early committing as do their parents, kids that are not recruited in 9th and 10th grade hate it. As far as HS coaches hating it that is more complicated, a top public school team used to have at most 4-5 D1 commits mostly 12th graders with fewer 11th. graders, now a top public team might have 10 - 12 and that is a big number to work with . Do you keep a 9th grade D1 commit on JV? Do you not play them? and the 10th grader who is not verbally committed and not on varsity thinks their lacrosse career is over (IT IS NOT) - so IMHO earlier recruiting is all good for the kids, not so great for the HS coaches that have to deal with it.

Re: High School Lax Boys - 04/01/16 03:21 PM

Believe me I'm not a fool! BU is one in sixty some odd D1 schools. Starting out is great for them because they have 121/2 scholarships to be had. As time goes on their will be less scholarship money for them to give because of the existing team AND it is a great ACADEMIC school which is appealing. Second, college coaches recruit every year are you saying they should be playing everyone equally? There are thousands of kids committing early how many of them to you hear are making an impact right away or even getting playing time at all? Just because your recruited doesn't mean your one of the top players on your high school team. Let your kid know life isn't fair early on and they will be fine in college

If you can not get 12 d1 commits on the field with significant playing time you should not be coaching. If you have 12 d1 commits, you should be able to get 18 players significant playing time even in tight games
I have seen D1 schools play 18-19 players in tight games.
Every coach should have the problem of too many d1 commits.
Problem is high school coaches choose starters and then act like the starter is 10 better than player right under him. Which may be the case- but definitely not all the time- a lot of times there is not much difference.

There's a difference between being tough and dishonest. Lack of integrity has NOTHING to do with being a tough coach. It's more than 2 or 3 kids standing on the sideline who take issue with the tactics and empty promises and if you think that's all you are dillusional. Glad it worked out for your two kids.

so you are saying a D1 commit should play because he is a D1 commit even if the coaching staff thinks a non committed player is better and gives the team a better chance of winning? I personally think the coaching staff should put the players on the field that give them the best chance of winning regardless or commitment status, grade, political connections or what team travel team they play for. But I also believe in unicorns

I call BS on this - nobody is moving from one assistant coaching job to another just for money. They just don't make that much at either school to justify leaving your work job on the south shore and driving to the north shore 5 days a week for maybe a couple of hundred extra bucks a year. I do not know him or have any idea why he decided to make the move back to Syosset but I doubt that money was the driving force

Re: High School Lax Boys - 04/01/16 05:00 PM

OK so whats being said if your not committed your not worthy of a spot. Please wake up. There are so many situations where there are plenty of great players who are not committed in 9th and 10th grade. If you happen to be on the right team with the right coaches who happen to have connections, you tend to get committed early. My sons team ranks with some of the best in his age group and we play all over. We have a number of committed players on his team and you usually can see the difference in their caliber of play. Every so often we play a team where they arent so heralded and there are players that are just great and they are not committed. Reason is they happen to play on a team that isnt going to all the Showcases or their coach doesnt have the invite to Philly Showcase or Maverick.

What I am trying to say is the best players are not always the ones committed. HS coaches are around the boys daily and see who or what they are. Maybe little Johnny committed isnt telling mom and dad that the uncommitted Junior or Senior is killing him on 50-50 balls or that because Johnny thinks he so good he doesnt need to try so hard at practice. How about the fact that the difference in actual talent is so negligible that the coach awards a player that has put in the time and is a team player and bustd his [lacrosse] day in and day out since 9th grade to start.

Not saying for it or against early recruiting, but is there a line? An 8th grader commits this year. Why not go after 7th and 6th graders? As for "stating opinion without effecting your son's playing time" is the just the opposite - the more the parent opines, bitches, moans to the coach, the more playing time the kid gets.

Not a big secret in Massapequa or Syosset that he had previously coached in Syosset and that does not take away from the main point that it is hard to believe that an assistants job in Syosset could pay that much more than assistants job in Massapequa to be the reason for the change.

Your not sure who is posting this stuff. Well it's coming from within. We're you not at the parent meeting with everyone yelling and screaming at each other. Are you not aware of kids turning other kids in for things they do, so they can get a chance to play. The infighting, the back stabbing by both the parents and players is crazy. If you are unaware of this then you are 100% disconnected and have your head buried in the sand.

Maybe he left for some credit. He's a lacrosse guy. His former boss never played the game. I know I know, all the geniuses will tell me you don't have to have played the game to be a great coach. Tell that to the assistant that does all of the work for little recognition.

I To am an alum of Chaminade and the lacrosse team. and was at the game. No Excuse's Ward Melville played a very good game today, made plays when they needed to and saves when the had to also. Chaminade seemed to be in a fog waiting for someone/anyone to make a play. If they don't get it together quick it could be a very tough week with games against St A's and Manhasset in the next 7 days.

They are an All Star team with kids from all over the Island. Stop with the excuses. I'd love to know how many came out for the Ward Melville team and how many they cut. Bet it wasn't more than Chammy.

Wasn't at the game, but are people seriously saying that Chaminade is not a good team because they are playing top teams to 1-2 goals?

And for the record- I don't have a kid on the team- just think people are crazy for slamming teams left and right. It's as if you can only win and never lose to be considered a good team. I assume you were all Olympic gold medalists or national champs at your sport.


What about all 5he Chammy parents bragging about all their D1 commits, blah blah blah, and still can't beat public. Embarrassment!


So jealous. Go away loser


Jealous of what? Putting your son on a train? Spending $$$ for what you can get for free? You should be embarrassed that all that extra smoke and mirrors didn't pan out. All the loyal public kids are mocking you right now! And the way it looks now, you really need to get on your shinebox!

They are an All Star team with kids from all over the Island. Stop with the excuses. I'd love to know how many came out for the Ward Melville team and how many they cut. Bet it wasn't more than Chammy.


Why do you call them an All Star Team? They might have kids from all over but who says they have the best kids from all over? The best kids in our town don't go there.

No excuses, they simply are not very good. Did you watch the game?

"Spending $$$ for what you can get for free?"

I have four kids. Three boys and a girl. 2 Cham, one public, one St A. You simply cannot compare the education at Cham to the other two. Worth every single penny. My experience. My guess is that the poster who wrote this question does not have a son let alone any relative who attended Chaminade. My guess is that you have no frame of reference.

My son is at public he has received a stellar education and is headed off to a great school. He has several teammates headed to top Ivies. No need to waste money on what we have enjoyed as a part of our tax payments. Community pride and well earned accomplishments will always be cherished memories. I'm proud to say we did not seek to find the greener grass, because it was right here all along!

If your son has "several teammates heading to top Ivies," you no doubt live in a very highly regarded school district. Not everyone can say the same thing. As such, there are many Catholic Long Islanders who like where they live but choose to spend some money -- not "waste" it -- on a Catholic education. It is a personal choice. And your disparagement of parents who make that choice is as insipid as it is obnoxious. Stick to lacrosse.

The score was 9-8 dummy. One of the closest games I've ever seen. Unfortunately, because of your biased, hating, mentality, your very limited brain lead you to believe it was a blow out.I truly hope you are not an adult. Such a loser…...

Congratulations, you happen to be the exception rather than the rule. Most LI Publics do not have a TOP quality education AND a solid lacrosse program. Getting a private school education is anything but a waste of money, take a look where Chaminade kids are matriculating to college and get back to me. As for community pride, thats an absolute joke. The only time there is community pride is when the team is winning, otherwise there is backstabbing, complaining and general discontent, take a look whats going on with this board in regards to GC and Syosset. People dont give a crap about community, they want THEIR kid to be successful and the team to be good. Im glad it worked out for you and your kids but dont disparage other peoples choices because honestly you have no clue what youre talking about.

They lost to a very good Ward Melville team, nothing to be ashamed of. Ward Melville draws from a huge talent pool as their school district encompasses many towns and they have a long tradition of winning and putting out highly regarded lacrosse players. They didnt lose to Pat-Med or Brentwood so lets relax.

If Chaminade isnt very good, what does that say about West Islip, who they beat up on pretty good? Its early season still, lets see what happens and make our judgments at the end of the year.

Go to chaminade forum
No one cares to hear a bunch of blow hards keep trying to convince themselves how great there school is. My kids never did and never will consider a school like chaminade so stop believing their are chaminade kids and then the kids who wish they were. What you are seeing now this lax season is that the hype will never live up to reality

Was WI ranked in the National top 20? No. Was Chaminade? Yes. Do Chaminade people come on here and brag non-stop about how great their team is? Yes. Will Chaminade still be in the top 20? No.

I didnt see any excuses in there at all. So in your warped view of reality a private school should never lose to a public school? Do you know anything about Ward Melville? Not a Chaminade parent either so sorry to disappoint you, Im just not understanding why everyone is so up in arms about Chaminade losing to a very good lacrosse team that happens to be a public school.

WM isn't ranked in national top 20. Those BS rankings are based on reported D1 commits and political connections the so called experts have with club and high school coaches. They should never be given total credibility.

WM is not even the top public program at the moment, several others as good or better. Chaminade is lucky the don't face Syosset, who would really give them a shalacking!

Seriously?

Geez I would believe you if you said a Notre Dame Stanford etc. IVY etc degree will take you places, but one from High School? Its been about 8-9 years now that a college degree is about as useful as a HS diploma was 30 years ago, just an entry level to a career. Its where your graduate school degree is from is where it matters.

Is that what they are calling Nassau county championships and Long Island Championships ?? Participation medals ? Wow , these poor kids are killing themselves all season to have you , someone who at their age couldn't imagine playing at their level , knock the hard work they are all putting in to call themselves Long Island Champions. I don't know what your school did last year and how far their lacrosse season went but I am damn proud of our team for winning and know that a Long Island Champion is no participation medal. At least not in Class A against pequea and smithtown east. There is no easy road there. Give credit to kids where credit is due.
As to the "Syosset parent" who keeps jumping on here talking about giving out shalackings, you people fall for it every time .... Do u even notice that they wait for the Syosset talk to die down and as soon as it does they say something just to get people to lash out against Syosset again. Happens every few pages , watch the pattern and it's the same quick senseless comment just to get ppl to start slamming the same town.
That's the problem with thiese anonymous boards, believe less than half of what u read , the fact that someone would come on here and say that kids are turning on each other for playing time ....makes me sick that people would blatantly lie about this especially when it has to do with the kids . The 3-4 parents that are causing trouble and upset are no different than any other varsity team on Long Island , only difference is they can't understand that their kid is on the sideline bc they would be better off on JV where it is age appropriate and would get all the playing time they could want . But it's all about the parents ego. You can't have it both ways .

Re: High School Lax Boys - 04/03/16 10:07 PM

I will explain it slowly to the appalled Chaminade lovers. Because the Chaminade lacrosse parents are so pompous, its total gloat time. Because in order to send your kid there to play lacrosse, you think your kid is pretty darn good to begin with. You know 100+ kids are going to be at the tryouts. But you send him anyway. They would rather their kid not play on a winner, than play at home or another private on what the parents see as inferior. It's only when their superstar kid gets cut do they start complaining. Maybe their kid could make a lesser program great (ie. the Thompsons go to Albany vs Syracuse). But it easier to join a proven winner (a la 91 and Express) and puff your chests how you dominate people. Well its time for your comeuppance. A bunch of highly touted, big time D-1 committed "individuals" were beaten by a public school team and every non-Chaminade parent absolutely loves it. So when this happens and they can't puff out their chests proudly in their red apparel, they say, "well, we sent him for the academics anyway." LOL. One can only pray that the publics continue give the Big 2 trouble, and we can all watch from a far with a huge grin.

Re: High School Lax Boys - 04/03/16 11:28 PM

WM PARENT...Posted a few days back. Someone said my comment was thoughtful and someone called me a housewife- for the record, i am neither.

The prior comments about parents (at least this parent) smiling because a public beats chammy, are ridiculous. WM was smiling because they beat a great program with a great track record...in a sloppy, but well fought contest. same outcome as last year.

Unlike the crazy posters, WM has no inferiority complex and simply wants to compete and play with the best.

Honestly, if lucky enough and good enough, beating sme, smw, wi, conectquot...-will evoke more smiles than were on people's faces on Saturday. Better yet, leaving the island by beating pequa or syosset or whichever team represents Nassau A this year at hofstra is more important to WM team and parents than winning a game in early april...

I think the people that are offended by chammy have an inferiority complex. Very much the same as the people that think early recruiting has ruined lax forever...because they didn't send their kid to chammy and because no one recruited their son, everything is bad and rigged and the world isn't fair...

if your kid is in chammy and on lax team, well done. if your kid isn't but he is happy, look up to the sky and say thank you...

no $ to play lax as a career, but if someone hands your 9th grader 20k in tuition reduction a year to pretty much any school (assuming you need to the money), take it and again, say thank you.

cant wait for the words of wisdom in reply

Better yet, leaving the island by beating pequa or syosset or whichever team represents Nassau A this year at hofstra is more important to WM team and parents than winning a game in early april...

I think the people that are offended by chammy have an inferiority complex. Very much the same as the people that think early recruiting has ruined lax forever...because they didn't send their kid to chammy and because no one recruited their son, everything is bad and rigged and the world isn't fair...

if your kid is in chammy and on lax team, well done. if your kid isn't but he is happy, look up to the sky and say thank you...

no $ to play lax as a career, but if someone hands your 9th grader 20k in tuition reduction a year to pretty much any school (assuming you need to the money), take it and again, say thank you.

cant wait for the words of wisdom in reply



Chaminade started this with their bragging. My son plays for one of the programs you mentioned and we look forward to the showdown with you, always exciting. I'm glad you won , but their is no inferiority complex on this end, just pride that a good public beats the privileged private once again. Great job!

Bronxville has a better midfield with 2 juniors and a soph who are playing at the next level. Their D is suspect but 2 good goalies as well and a capable attack.
.
Win the midfield battle, you always have a chance, even if a small school v bigger school.

I asked a ref last night about your post and he told me that the rules as they currently are written says that regardless of a schools total population and the size of a teams roster both teams are only allowed to play 10 players at a time, it is a quality not quantity question. I don't know about Bronxville but the CSH 10 are pretty damn good.

Not a Chaminade fan, but you really are a sad and pathetic loser with a serious inferiority complex. Probably never play the game at a competitive level either. Get a life and move on.

Obviously, this person does not represent the majority of lacrosse parents. Most of us respect all players from all schools, as well as their parents.

Bronxville and CSH are two of the best small schools in the state. Having a small school just makes it harder to field a great lacrosse team, and a lot fewer of the small schools can do it. But for those that can, they will be just as good as a large school. Its still the same sport.

Youre right they lost to Niskayuna who lost to Victor. Upstate lacrosse has always been good, West Genny was a dynasty at one point.

Yes that's right! I know Victor is the real deal. How in the world did Syosset list to Niskayuna? Who even are they? Pequa blew through everyone the year before after winning a nail biter to S East.

Like North Carolina. A lot of hype and wins during the regular season but no State Championship trophies in the case. Manhasset lost to Victor in the finals and you dont hear them crowing about making it a step further than Syosset. They judge themselves by how many state trophies they have, not how many semi final appearances.

What's more interesting to me, is how Chaminade was only able to pull of an OT win. Both teams not as good as advertised, especially chaminade with the parents of the sophomores acting like they should be on varsity. Catholics a total mess!

Why is the catholic league a mess. St Anthonys was supposed to be bad this year. As or the jv teams that was club parents talking up Chaminade. Both jv programs would dominate 80 percent of varsity teams on long island. As for varsity programs they are opposite of public school programs. Both teams play a few easier games then the toughest schedule out there. Public schools play easy schedules with a few descent games. No public school would subject their teams to the schedule these teams do.

My point being public schools wouldn't play that type of schedule even if they could. Chaminade and st Anthonys could set up their games to go undefeated every year they play very hard schedules and the teams that see them at the end of the year will see different teams than at the start of the year. They play one game a year that matters but they play an extremely tough schedule so people can post about their loss

This is a ridiculous comment. Plenty of publics play very aggressive OOC schedules -- they're just limited by the number of games allowed.

WM losses to a better WI team by a few goals. 8-6 -r 9-7 not sure.

WM coach deserves all credit, again. he has a very decent team but his decision making is poor, bordering on horrible...

WM coach insists on second middy line being all sophs--all good/great kids and all committed, but none have ability to make a move, dodge, and score at this level, out weighed by 20 pounds. ... completely insane...maybe try a senior and see what happens??? Insane...

FO---the WM coach has three committed kids at x FO, but instead puts in the all american wrestler for the last five, down a few goals...clearly, the coach hasn't changed with the times...coach-FO important now...60 -40 is better than a 50 50 ground ball, ask Syracuse, better yet, ask umass? where you played...

Coach-

Just a poorly managed game. Is it possible that you take a minute and re-evaluate? You have a chance this season to win, but not if you make the decisions you made today. review the tapes, look at the replays, make sure the best are playing...or, stick to your guns and manage based on your relationships and the kids paying your summer tuition

WM-Good luck. Watch the tape!!!!

You have a chance this season to win, but not if you make the decisions you made today. review the tapes, look at the replays, make sure the best are playing...or, stick to your guns and manage based on your relationships and the kids paying your summer tuition

WM-Good luck. Watch the tape!!!!



Wow. that didn't take long. One loss and the WM parents are attacking the coaches and the other players.

And there it is, right there in black and white for all to see:

"stick to your guns and manage based on your (financial) relationships and the kids paying your summer tuition".

In other words... What am I paying you for if you are not going to play my kid?

Can you just relax regarding the WM Coach. It was a good game by two very evenly matched teams. AND two good coaching staffs. It is early in the season. I am pretty sure 'I am trying to lose' - said no Coach ever.
Adjustments will be made, kids will learn and improve....life will go on. Nobody died today on that field. Have a little perspective!

Right on the mark. WM Lax Community knows about these buffoons besides their deficiency in the X's and O's of coaching and leadership, their motive is self-serving for ancillary income but more importantly their primary jobs are "educators" in the district. Head coach is dean of high school. Shameful, but the lax community in WM is well aware.

It is my understanding that when the senior all American wrestler came in as a FOGO the score started changing... Not sure if I understand your point. I think if they let him play the field there would have been a major difference in possession certainly and defense too. It was the first time he played all year and there was a swing in momentum when he did. Are you suggesting that the other FO kids should have been used instead because of their college commitments?

Well, lets also remember that WM played 4 solid quarters until the final horn.....WI stood up and cheered when they took out one of the WM players.

Not sure you can blame the FO losses on the head coach. I believe one of the assistant coaches handles that responsibility.

Yes that was it. They were cheering for injuring a player, not the fact that he got up and walked off the field by himself. Idiot.

Coaches want to win....especially vs. WI. Great rivalry. Its a players game. Recruited FO's couldnt beat WI at the X. FO at WM has been a problem since 2013. AA wrestler made it a scrum & it worked, good coaching move. WI is WI....tough team not to be over-looked. Its a long season, keep working hard everyday. FWIW, its easy to figure out which

Ok, so what happens in practice? if 2nd line is all sophs, your senior
sonmust be 3rd/4 th line correct? they scrimmage everyday how come your senior middie doesn't beat a soph line with his extra 20 lbs.? but you expect your kid would have done better vs tough WI mids? please explain.

SN games offense looked like the old times passing the ball and not taking good shots. They would apply pressure, just not good a flow. I thought they had the ball way to much not to score, maybe new coaching staff is limited them too much or looking for 1 player to do it all.

We like the all american kid and agree he should be on the field...just not a fogo-I am not even close to saying the other fogo kids should have played because they are committed-but very much saying that the all american isn't as good at it as any of the other three.

Now, if you were losing every fo (think about that kid from sme we will face in a couple of weeks) and you put him there to battle, like a long pole-excellent coaching move, but that was not the case yesterday.

To your point about "momentum" -he didn't win possession as much as any of the former players, nor did he score nor was he given the opportunity to play defense. Having him run on the field and run off after losing possession is just foolish and poor coaching.

I completely agree the all american kid is an asset the coaches let sit on the side line when his size and strength are the exact attributes the team needed yesterday at middie. I also think he would have been a very strong fit during sachem n game and agree that the outcome could have been different if the coaches let him play yesterday (four or five or even 10 other boys in exactly the same position). Same old political nonsense in our happy little town.

I am not attacking any of the wm players.

We at WM have been watching these boys for ten years and we all know each of them, their strengths and weaknesses and when they are on and when they are not. If some kids weren't on, weren't strong enough, couldn't hit the cage, why not see if one of the other kids sitting on the bench were on, were strong enough, were hitting the cage. You and I agree that yesterday, the all american should have been playing (a lot).

the WM coaching leaves a lot to be desired and while some might say too early to pick on the coach (fair point), my opinion is that the team has an opportunity to actually compete for LI championship this year, so giving the coach a pass on a poorly managed, poorly coached game against WI is wasteful and harmful. And if we were all being honest, we would admit that sachem and commack were close games that could have gone wrong.

WM is still coaching as if the two all Americans from last year were on the field. They are gone -get over it and coach the very evenly talented 42 kids you have.

there is not a kid on that team that isn't as good as the other 41, so if fogo by committee, why not middie by committee or attack by committee or d by committee??? Unlike all the recent past years, we have a pretty even talent pool. Someone will undoubtedly say they are building team chemistry-to that I say bs-these boys have all been playing together for years, pal, travel, in house...they know each other well.

for the record, my boy was in all his normal shifts and didn't have a great day. If I were coaching, would have replaced him in that game for another kid...one of several. getting pulled for having a bad day is exactly what this team needs.

we all have to pay 200 for this stupid video service-my kid uses it-suggest that the coaches do the same...

the only people that will disagree with the above are the parents of the other 14 or 15 kids that always play no matter how poorly they are playing. the parents of all the other 26 equally talented boys watching and freezing on the side, will entirely agree-

I am with them....

Re: High School Lax Boys - 04/07/16 03:01 PM

One loss and you are coming a centimeter short of calling out individual kids on this site, while trying to walk the line and say "they are all great/good". Yeah, that makes it better. I would hate to be caught in a foxhole with you. Its an early season loss. WM is a young team with a lot of new starters, and admittedly came in overrated based upon a win against a Chaminade team which as it turns out, may not be as strong as usual. This WM team is scrappy and will be a tough out by the end of the season and also a dangerous team to face. It is not very difficult to narrow down who this is, so why don't you take a breath and vow to wait 2 days after a loss before you post. And I bet your kid would not appreciate you throwing his teammates under the bus. We have two home games this weekend, take the opportunity at one or both of these games, to approach the parents of the kids you are blaming the loss on (even though you are trying to hide it by pretending to blame the coaches) and let them know how you feel - or better yet, just keep your opinions to yourself. And at the end of the season when these kids who supposedly should "replaced
by committee"- which is ridiculous and not done in Lax at this level - are winning games, you better make sure you are not being a hypocrite and glad-handing everyone and telling them how their kid is "some player".

that is the way of this team, protect your kid's spot...

So you're saying that WM has a team of completely equal players? No single player is better than the other 41? That's amazing! Or, you're just completely insane. If playing on the summer team is making the difference in playing time, then play on the summer team. If playing on the summer team helps the boys better understand the coach's offense, then play on the summer team. If playing on the summer team strengthens the coach's faith in particular players (thereby putting them a step above the 41 other equals), then play on the summer team. Or just complain that the world is unfair and no fault lies on you or your son.

If playing on the summer team strengthens the coach's faith in particular players (thereby putting them a step above the 41 other equals), then play on the summer team. Or just complain that the world is unfair and no fault lies on you or your son.

Hi wm fans-

In a meeting and text said go look at back of cage...

You all know me- suit pacing the sidelines- two boys taking face offs.

You all have opinions, but mine is this- go back to work and leave this site. Finger pointing anonymously serves no purpose.

Leave the drama to Chaminade folks:)

We like the all american kid and agree he should be on the field...just not a fogo-I am not even close to saying the other fogo kids should have played because they are committed-but very much saying that the all american isn't as good at it as any of the other three.

Now, if you were losing every fo (think about that kid from sme we will face in a couple of weeks) and you put him there to battle, like a long pole-excellent coaching move, but that was not the case yesterday.

To your point about "momentum" -he didn't win possession as much as any of the former players, nor did he score nor was he given the opportunity to play defense. Having him run on the field and run off after losing possession is just foolish and poor coaching.

I completely agree the all american kid is an asset the coaches let sit on the side line when his size and strength are the exact attributes the team needed yesterday at middie. I also think he would have been a very strong fit during sachem n game and agree that the outcome could have been different if the coaches let him play yesterday (four or five or even 10 other boys in exactly the same position). Same old political nonsense in our happy little town.

I am not attacking any of the wm players.

We at WM have been watching these boys for ten years and we all know each of them, their strengths and weaknesses and when they are on and when they are not. If some kids weren't on, weren't strong enough, couldn't hit the cage, why not see if one of the other kids sitting on the bench were on, were strong enough, were hitting the cage. You and I agree that yesterday, the all american should have been playing (a lot).

the WM coaching leaves a lot to be desired and while some might say too early to pick on the coach (fair point), my opinion is that the team has an opportunity to actually compete for LI championship this year, so giving the coach a pass on a poorly managed, poorly coached game against WI is wasteful and harmful. And if we were all being honest, we would admit that sachem and commack were close games that could have gone wrong.

WM is still coaching as if the two all Americans from last year were on the field. They are gone -get over it and coach the very evenly talented 42 kids you have.

there is not a kid on that team that isn't as good as the other 41, so if fogo by committee, why not middie by committee or attack by committee or d by committee??? Unlike all the recent past years, we have a pretty even talent pool. Someone will undoubtedly say they are building team chemistry-to that I say bs-these boys have all been playing together for years, pal, travel, in house...they know each other well.

for the record, my boy was in all his normal shifts and didn't have a great day. If I were coaching, would have replaced him in that game for another kid...one of several. getting pulled for having a bad day is exactly what this team needs.

we all have to pay 200 for this stupid video service-my kid uses it-suggest that the coaches do the same...

the only people that will disagree with the above are the parents of the other 14 or 15 kids that always play no matter how poorly they are playing. the parents of all the other 26 equally talented boys watching and freezing on the side, will entirely agree-

I am with them....


So you're saying that WM has a team of completely equal players? No single player is better than the other 41? That's amazing! Or, you're just completely insane. If playing on the summer team is making the difference in playing time, then play on the summer team. If playing on the summer team helps the boys better understand the coach's offense, then play on the summer team. If playing on the summer team strengthens the coach's faith in particular players (thereby putting them a step above the 41 other equals), then play on the summer team. Or just complain that the world is unfair and no fault lies on you or your son.


I'm confused. An earlier post suggested that the coach should stick to his guns and play the kids who pay him in the summer. That would lead me to believe that the coach is playing kids who do not pay to play for him in the summer. If that is the case then I must assume the coach is playing the players who he believes will help the team win and he is not showing favoritism to the people who believe that in order to play you must pay. Am I correct?

Also, I am not sure if it was the same poster or not but didn't I also read something about playing seniors? I assume they mean over a freshman or sophomore. Do I have that right? Again, If I am following this correctly the coach is playing freshmen and sophomore's who may or may not pay to play in the summer over upperclassmen who do pay to play in the summer and therefore believe they should play because they pay to play, are older and have put in their time. Is that correct?

My take is the coach wants to win and he will play who he believes will help the team win.

The parents of kids who are not playing are going to be unhappy. Some believe their kid is owed something and will complain. And some will tell their kid to keep working.

The pay to play summer crap should be done away with. There is a conflict of interest.

Don't know if the coach is good at managing the game or not but I find it hard to believe he is not playing who he believes are the best players.

Sounds like a lot of finger pointing and animosity.

I guess winning keeps everyone quiet.

This is very typical of WM parents!!!! They all think there kid is going D1. They blame every one around them including there coach. Can't image spending this much time back and forth with people from the same school. It was the same when your kids were in the summer youth program. There has been all kinds of crazy story's over the years. Now you move to the varsity team. lol WM parents have been a problem for many years and nothing has changed. Please keep this coming, very entertaining. Good luck to you all...

Re: High School Lax Boys - 04/07/16 07:11 PM

You are correct, that as a WM parent this is a bit embarrassing. Especially after one loss but your are wrong in painting with a broad brush. Some of us sit in the stands and cheer for the boys, then get in a car and go home. And we understand that most will not play D1 lacrosse. Been around the lacrosse scene a lot and heard a lot of stories from parents on the club team who hail from varying districts - not much different than other schools. as a matter of fact, some are worse. Probably very similar to yours if you were really being truthful about it. Its all good, we will be a strong team down the stretch. It wont be overnight of be easy because we are a team without superstars (for the moment). Non WM parents - enjoy the derision now, we will be a force to contend with down the stretch. and to the poster that felt compelled to bring the drama after one loss, we just might not leave any room on the bandwagon for you and the other naysayers when you want to jump back on.
Lets Go Ward!

Re: High School Lax Boys - 04/07/16 11:03 PM

My opinion: WM lost to a team that played better yesterday, not necessarily a better team. They wanted it more. This is the parody we will see this year. We are seeing it on the college level, and now on the HS. Mark my words, there are more "upsets" to come. Dynasty days are gone. Why? That is a tough question. Many programs lost team cornerstones and are struggling to find their groove. This includes WM, SE, and Northport to name a few. Blaming kids is not the answer. As for F/O, I firmly believe that a team should leave their best guy in there even if he is losing. Sometimes it takes a bit to "figure it out" sometimes the other teams guy is just better, or just hot that day. You are still better off with your best. Throwing in the pole or backup rarely works out. Going forward, we move on from losses and try to grow from them. Playoffs is where it becomes real!

FO---the WM coach has three committed kids at x FO, but instead puts in the all american wrestler for the last five, down a few goals...clearly, the coach hasn't changed with the times...coach-FO important now...60 -40 is better than a 50 50 ground ball, ask Syracuse, better yet, ask umass? where you played...

Coach-

Just a poorly managed game. Is it possible that you take a minute and re-evaluate? You have a chance this season to win, but not if you make the decisions you made today. review the tapes, look at the replays, make sure the best are playing...or, stick to your guns and manage based on your relationships and the kids paying your summer tuition

WM-Good luck. Watch the tape!!!!


I watched the game on MSG and just read your post again.

No problem if you want to be critical of the coach but you are way out of line calling out players.

You are demanding seniors play yet your best offensive player is a freshman. You are demanding size yet some of the best players in the game are not very big. Lacrosse is not wrestling and weight has very little to do with a players success on the field.

I do not know about the players on the bench but I have to believe that the coach is playing who he thinks helps the team the most. Tell your son to keep working because you never know when you will get a chance to play. Make sure he is ready.

Who cares if a kid is a senior or freshman? Who cares if the player is committed or not? If the team is successful the coach is doing a decent job. If they lose or if kid plays poorly then I am sure changes will be made and other players will be given a chance.

Your comment regarding "paying your summer tuition" are the most concerning of all. It is bad enough that you think seniority should trump ability or performance but to believe that paying the coach should buy your son playing time is really very telling. Just one reason HS coaches should not be permitted to run for profit summer pay to play teams.

WM coach just wants to win. He is going to play the best kids while also building for the future. most of the 9th/10th kids were all kids that didn't listen to the "one town one team" nonsense and went and played club lacrosse at a much higher level than 3V or WM could offer. their skill sets are much higher, they play at a much faster pace and the results are obvious. That is why D1 schools have verbally committed to many of them. This is a skill game.... most of them don't even play for Patriot Elite and there is no ill will from coaches...He is playing the kids that don't pay him over the ones that do....Coach wants to win and is playing his best at this point. also a very young team so next year and year after the team will be loaded with high level, club players and very experienced kids playing. Senior class this year is not as strong as in past. Watch out NYS, we are coming!

You are correct. The coach is playing the kids he believes can help the team win, which is exactly what he should be doing regardless of where they play summer ball. None of us are at practice every day and see what they see. What I do take exception to is you making this a town vs. club thing. WM does have a good group of young players that have played club but only two have made contributions to this team so far during game days, so calm down with how great they are until you have a bigger sample size. There are many committed players on the team. Some have played club and some have not and they can all play at a high level. They are all playing together and can all contribute if they play as a team. Stop pushing the club is better than town agenda. It's old at this point.

Most teams have this issue this one got caught. It is sad this happen... now the rest of you kids/families heed the Warning. No school is immune.

News flash: Lax Bros smoke pot! These kids just dumb enough to get caught. I know this because my son tells me. He is friends with other lacrosse players from all the big powers. Including Catholics. If you think your son isn't doing this , he is either the exception or your head is buried in the sand! So stop with the "Shameful" comments.

Drugs are everywhere, especially for our young people. In this case Im assuming it was an error in judgement. For anyone that has teenage kids this is a constant worry, and for anyone to believe that their kid isnt capable of something like this is foolish and naive. You send your kids out into the world, give them the right information and hope they make good decisions. Sometimes kids make bad decisions as do adults and there are consequences for your actions. Hopefully these kids and parents learn and move on from this and no permanent damage is done to their futures for what seems to be a silly lapse of judgement.

CONSEQUENCES ARE THE KEY... a kid from a less affluent community would probably have ended up in jail under similar circumstances. How you rise above these self imposed situations is the key to character. Who has it , and who doesn't.

Why don't you really set an example and fire the AD who was also on the trip with them... Come on, really. So it's now the coach's responsibility to parent his players as well? I guess it is the teacher's fault when Johnny gets a failing mark on his test as well. This lies solely on the players and the parents in this situation. Case closed.

Re: High School Lax Boys - 04/10/16 03:48 PM

I post the statement on the coach should also be held accountable. Yes totally agree this lies on the kids, thye are off the team no question, all I'm saying is the coach has to take some responsiblity here. It is his team, his kids, this is HS they should know better, but something has to be done. I understand that at least one of the kids has similar trouble in football and the lax coach is also the football coach common on, he has to take some fault here. But kids are gone, no way they can be back on the team. No the teachers is not responsilble for a kid falling, but if a kid is struggling he better make sure he/she is doing everything he/she can do to help that kid, unless the student jsut does not give a crap, than no that lies on the student. Trust me I'm a educated and there are alot of teachers who jsut don't car and put the time. I take it to me to make sure I do my best to make sure every student can pass the their test and some students need more. If there is trouble on a team than who takes the reponsiblity.

Some of these boys are 18, Legal adults, I don't think smoking pot is that big of a deal, Hek it's legal in some states.

When I was a HS senior we went out to lunch, had a beer, then went back to class, all legal back in the good old days. People way uptite about everything!

I take it to me to make sure I do my best to make sure every student can pass the their test and some students need more. If there is trouble on a team than who takes the reponsiblity.
This has got to be a kid posting.... If not, sounds like you may have lit a splif yourself before posting this jumbled nonsense.

Can not believe what i am reading. IT IS ILLEGAL TO SMOKE POT PERIOD !!!
Lapse in judgement, parents fault excuses excuses. Everyone is doing it really. If they have not been caught then how can you say they are doing it. These kids got caught doing something ILLEGAL. So it proves they are doing it. Done end they are all off the team. They were on a trip where the Head Coach is responsible for all of the players from the time they leave the school until the time they return. How did 6 players disappear from the team in order to do this. What if one of those kids decided to steal a car which is illegal but others do it and gets in a crash. I would bet everything those same GC parents would blame the Coach and school and lawyer up. Clear example of making excuses instead of making them take responsibility. To say all lax players do it is wrong. As far as I know D1 still drug test players. Have not heard of anyone getting the boot. I would like to think most kids take their sports seriously and would not jeopardize themselves or their team and stay away.

Why is this about class-warfare? The idea that parents are blaming the coaches, the AD or other players, couldn't be further from the truth. One can only imagine the feelings of disappointment, embarrassment, worry, etc. that they must be experiencing this weekend. I have worked in school systems in both Nassau and Suffolk and I can tell you from experience that (sadly) drug and alcohol use amongst teenagers is rampant and transcends all races and social classes. Most parents try to prepare their kids to make the right choices. Unfortunately good people sometimes make bad choices. And I agree that there should and will be consequences but please refrain from being so self-righteous,. Every parent will have to catch their child when they fall at some point in life.

I'd like to know how many of you Drank alcohol and or smoked pot in HS? Not saying it's right, just what kids do, and in my opinion the worst offenders have parents in denial, thinking their kid is an angel! Teach them responsible use in moderation while you have a chance, before they go to college and make poor choices!

First of all teaching them responsible use? Are you serious? What are you advocating? Sitting with your kids and smokin a joint? Doing shots?

Both are illegal according to the law.

You see the difference was, back in the day I know my parents had a zero tolerance policy, made sure as [lacrosse] didn't do something as boneheaded as bringing drugs on a school sanctioned event. The wrath from parents was way worse than what school would have dished out.

My heart goes out to their parents. They are the ones who truly know exactly what is at stake.

I am a city kid who moved to LI to give my children a better life. Lacrosse is a part of that life. It is because of lacrosse that my son is attending a phenomenal school -- he will graduate and get a tremendous job -- all while playing the game he loves.

I am sure those parents lectured their sons about the dangers of drugs, drinking, bullying, texting while driving, unprotected sex, the list goes on.....

However, their sons are boys. No matter how many school assemblies they attended, how many times they saw stories on the news, they did not believe they would be caught --- why??? Because they are just boys.

I am not making excuses. I am not condoning their actions. I believe they should have consequences.

I am sad for their parents. I am sure, they are loosing sleep over this.

Re: High School Lax Boys - 04/11/16 11:42 AM

I agree with you. All kids will drink or try things, but when parents have a zero tolerance policy I think that makes a big difference. Nowadays parents will let kids drink in their home, or by beer for them bc they want to be their kids friend. That is selfish of the parents. The kids have their own friends. Parents need to be parents. Obviously the kids who got caught during football season then sued the district to let him play in the lax season was sent the wrong message. There is zero accountability. It's really a shame for the rest of the boys on that team.

That is the GC way. Your kid gets in trouble and they lawyer up. Good lesson to teach your kids. And of course the school folds immediately. Not the first time won't be the last.

Hey GC kids if your parents ever decide to discipline you just want to let you know you can lawyer up for emotional distress or abuse. Your defense would be you are not use to taking responsibility for your actions.

You sure have a huge chip on your shoulder about GC. Might want to tone it down a bit. You come across as an idiot. You think you know what goes on in someone else's home? The boys did a monumentally stupid thing. They got caught and will pay the price. And they should. You may have to eat humble pie someday. Most teens something stupid at some point in HS

Not actually sure if they had a lawyer because the school folds so fast it never gets that far. All they need to hear is the word lawyer. One of these dads is a lawyer so lets see how the meeting goes today.

Fair punishment ??
1. Kicked off team for remainder of season
2. suspended until playoffs when they are needed
3. suspended a few games
4. since school sanctioned suspended from school few days
5. Head Coach steps down
6. AD steps down
7. Both step down
8. Nothing happens boys will be boys

I think most of you need to take a long draw on some fine mexican dirt weed and mellow the F%^& out, these people are going through [lacrosse] (and yes it is the kids own doing) but relax on your own moral judgments - if I can suggest a fine hybrid of Kentucky Bluegrass, Featherbed Bent and Northern California Sensemilia. The amazing stuff about this is, that you can play lacrosse on it in the afternoon, take it home and just get stoned to the bejeezus.

In every district to play a sport you have to sign a drug and alcohol or some code of conduct document to participate. This document also should list the penalties. If the student athlete signed it then he/she is subject to the consequences if caught in violation. No?

How about, kicked off the team for being morons, done. Life goes on for everyone else. Get over your self dude. My God, in HS I drank some beers and had a blast with all the other guys on both the football team and lacrosse team. And GASP, some of them even smoked pot. Really, how judgmental can you be? Just an FYI, coaches and AD's are protected by a Union that will never allow them to step down much less be removed.

Just hope lesson learned and they move on to better things. For the 2 time offender hope dad gets him help obviously lesson not learned

Not sure of the rules, but it's fairly common. Technically, they are both considered "varsity". JV kids get brought up for playoffs every year and sometimes kids that get brought up before the season and don't play get sent back down (either by parent request of coach). The rules really only apply to anyone playing on a "varsity" team (JV or V) and going back down to play MS sports. That's not allowed.

This could be an outdated response and the rules may have changed, but the answer is it depends. A varsity team can call up JV at any point in the season (one game fill in or full extended period). At no point can a Varsity graded athlete (11th/12th) go back and play JV.

The one in there now has admitted to drug use, and the others Husband former president never inhales. Bush was a huge user. All reached the pinnacle of success after some experimentation, even George Washington himself!. This is all silly!

There is a certain Mommy and Daddy who's son in on the GC team who openly allows boys to drink and smoke at their home. That is pathetic and they should be arrested. I hope their son was one of the boys suspended


I have no doubt that what you are saying is true, but it's easier said than proven.

When I was a HS senior we went out to lunch, had a beer, then went back to class, all legal back in the good old days. People way uptite about everything!

So I am guessing that when you were in HS and had a beer or two at lunch, you were walking or driving back to school?....sure all those folks that were on the road were happy that a 17/18 year old kid was on the roads after having a lunch beer or two...well done!


Ehhh? A beer does not make you drunk, perfectly legal to drive. Everything in moderation. Was never a pot smoker my self. Tried it but didn't care for it. I made that decision on my own, not because my parents forbid it. Was that you I saw at the restaurant the other night enjoying a bottle of wine, and then driving home? Don't see the crime here. It's the abusers who have ruined things for everyone else. And yea, I'm talking to you too lax mom too, driving around with your phone in your hand on the way to drop off you kid at the drivers safety course!


Way too many hypocrites in denial here. Why don't you worry about some real issues, like, who will run our country.

Now do you realize how dumb what you said is . The bottom line is that there are consequences for your action . If the school
Wants to suspend them for the rest of the season that is there choice. No ones opinion really matters. Saying it's only pot no big deal..give me a break . Next you will be approving heroin.these are life lessons and the kids will

Some people have addictive personalities. Nothing their parents do will change that. Lax players do not traditionally turn to heroin, but they are known for their pot smoking. Not hat it can't happen , but unlikely. These kids are living and learning just like we did. Stop pretending you are so innocent and let them grow up. These Garden City kids were just to stupid to realize that would be a bad time to party!

Nobody should be talking about the GC lacrosse team without knowing any facts or anything about the the players or the families because u bet that each family raised great sons who just made a terrible mistake. I bet the kids are being punished harshly at home and in school and they must be feeling very embarrassed. Everything all of you have written is bs because u don't know what's going on with these kids this situation and their families

Does anyone listen to Mike and Mike in the morning. With the new rule for Football about the "No Satellite" camps in football will this or did this roll to lacrosse as well?

They are stated for football a program can not have a representative at another schools camp. the only time a representative for a school can be at a camp is when it is on their own campus.

I have been to plenty of lax camps and showcases where multiple schools were at. That is the lure for the few I had my son attend. It was the same for football a few colleges were always at the camps I attended.

It this a new general rule for all NCAA sports... or just football.

i

I'm hearing rumblings that damage control is underway and the boys involved will receive just a few days suspension from practice. If this is the case, the AD should resign.. She has no control over any of the HS coaches most of who have been at GCHS for years. The programs are not nearly as successful as they were in years past or as they should/could be. Nepotism, favoritism,and plain old bulls$&@ are rampant on all varsiity teams. It's a disgrace to the community just like this situation is.

Not looking to chime in on the parenting/good kid-bad kid issues, just the law. Call it a pet peeve if you will but misstating the law drives me nuts. There is absolutely no statute in NY that criminalizes the mere fact that someone under the age of 21 has alcohol in their blood. the laws have to do with selling or serving alcohol to persons under 21 as well as possession with intent to consume. Additionally their are exemptions for parents - yes you can give you own child or ward alcohol - and those supervising educational classes where alcohol consumption is part of the course (say a college wine tasting course or a course in the police academy that demonstrates the effects of alcohol) as well as religious exceptions. maybe read the NYS Alcohol Beverage Control Law as well as the Penal law before stating what the 'facts' on the law are.

Your son is probably friends with them and as I've heard more then the kids who got caught were involved. Maybe your son was one of them eek.

I am appalled at some of the responses here about the "incident". Somehow I have to think that there is an agenda for some of them if the kids get thrown off of the team OR out of school.

I would like to point out to these nasty individuals that their little angels are not perfect either and that it is very possible that their turn will come.. or worse even.

How can you throw stones at people?

Ok there F. Lee Baily. You might want to look into the laws governing those under 21 and having "any" alcohol in their bloodstream when behind the wheel of car. Which is exactly what the poster was referring to. Over 21, 1 beer no problem. Under 21, big problem. Look into it, you might learn something.

I think the entire situation is unfortunate and I'm sure everyone involved wishes it had never happened. It did though and I believe some sort of punishment has to be given - whether it's suspension for a week or from a game or two, whatever. Otherwise what message is being sent to the boys involved and the rest of the school/high school sports community?

I think you sound a little ignorant sitting behind your little keyboard. As a parent of the team you expecting kids on the team to fail with drugs is extremely embarrassing. From what I've heard there were more involved and some got away with it, which easily could have been your kid. Maybe you should just hope your little angel whos never done anything bad in his life isnt next. Because I can tell you first hand as someone very familiar with these kids, your son probably had a blunt in his mouth after the loss last Saturday night, as 90% of the kids on the team did.

Pot/Herb/Marijuana are illegal. There is no excuse!!! It doesn't make a difference if you partook as a youth or even as an adult it is illegal. These boys broke the rules and the law. I am sure their parents understand the severity of the situation and unless you can identify yourself as a parent you should not be assuming what these parents are like and or what they do in their free time, and how they are handling the situation. Kids make mistakes and they are suffering the consequences of their actions. Some of the boys are committed and could lose their commit. We all were young and foolish and made mistakes. This could have been much worse for all and I am sure the boys have learned a valuable life lesson.

All parents of players should discuss this with their children and explain to them the consequences.

Just to add to the clarity of the law, a BAC of 0.02 under 21 first offense suspension of license for 90 days. Called NYS Zero tolerance law. This is for driving purposes.

Contrary to popular belief, marijuana USE is not illegal. The possession of a LARGE amount (pounds) is a misdemeanor. The use in public is illegal. The use in your home is not illegal. This has become very evident a GC bashing fest, most likely due to them beating your team over the years, probably embarrassing them. Not a GC resident but respect the academics/athletics the village provides the kids. Look up the US NEws Report on High School rankings, GC is #12. Pretty good.

Not looking to chime in on the parenting/good kid-bad kid issues, just the law. Call it a pet peeve if you will but misstating the law drives me nuts. There is absolutely no statute in NY that criminalizes the mere fact that someone under the age of 21 has alcohol in their blood. the laws have to do with selling or serving alcohol to persons under 21 as well as possession with intent to consume. Additionally their are exemptions for parents - yes you can give you own child or ward alcohol - and those supervising educational classes where alcohol consumption is part of the course (say a college wine tasting course or a course in the police academy that demonstrates the effects of alcohol) as well as religious exceptions. maybe read the NYS Alcohol Beverage Control Law as well as the Penal law before stating what the 'facts' on the law are. See NYS ABC Secs 65 & 65-c; NYS Penal Law Sec 260.20


brilliant.....knucklehead. A teen under the influence may not receive summons or arrest. But have someone (ie teacher) report it to child protective service and see how that ends up.......

Ok there F. Lee Baily. You might want to look into the laws governing those under 21 and having "any" alcohol in their bloodstream when behind the wheel of car. Which is exactly what the poster was referring to. Over 21, 1 beer no problem. Under 21, big problem. Look into it, you might learn something.


First off the original post I replied to did not say that "drivers" under the age of 21 couldn't have any alcohol in their bloodstream while opperating a motor vehicle, he simply said "In fact it is illegal for any kid to have alcohol in his system under 21" and that is simply wrong.

Secondly, the law you are referring too, called the 'zero tolerance law' is Vehicle and Traffic Law Sec 1192-a and applies to DRIVERS under the age of 21 with "any measurable alcohol" in there system defined as a BAC of .02-.07 (NOT .00). The section itself specifically says a violation is not a crime or offense, it merely opens the driver up to certain administrative penalties by the DMV. NOw have you learned something about being precise.

There are just way too many variables and way too little reading comprehension on display to accurately reply to this. Suffice it to say as a began my post with I was not commenting on the propriety of any particular action or inaction, merely the state of the Law in NY and the fact that there exists no such law that criminalizes the the presence of alcohol in the blood stream of a person under 21 on that fact alone. However, Along those lines, if by "under the influence" you mean intoxicated or impaired in public, such as at school, then there are criminal and municipal statutes that would apply regardless of the age of the offender. Also, to demonstrate what I mean by too many variables if a teen of say 18 was 'under the influence' whether the teen obtained the alcohol from the parents or not CPS would have no authority to intervene in any way.

But what does this all have to do with lacrosse anyway

Re: High School Lax Boys - 04/12/16 08:32 PM

All true. What is sad is the obsession with alcohol. Most Jrs and Seniors do drink. In my opinion 18 should be the legal age. The majority of kids try pot too. I'm glad to say that my son's generation does not drink and drive . I am also very happy that I have an open dialog with my son regarding this matter. If he knows there will be drinking, he gets a ride from me or someone else who is not drinking. Also if you think these college coaches don't think the kids party you are wrong. That's why they have early practices. To make life miserable for those who overindulge. Many of you really need to get your head out of the sand! Did you do anything illegal today, like drive over the speed limit maybe? Or are some laws ok to break if they don't seem reasonable?

I can't believe I'm reading this. Now you people say it's ok to smoke marijuana because it's not an illegal drug ? Since when did your morals go down the drain ? It is a drug. Period. Impaires your judgement and dangerous. No matter what town the boys are from they should be thrown off the team. If it were the volleyball team , they would be gone already.

Do you drink? Last I checked alcohol impairs your judgment. So move on to the next argument, the "where did your morals go" one isn't working for me and you seem like you need to get off that high horse (pun intended). Let's just stick with they broke a team/school rule and they were not smart enough not to get caught. Now they should face the consequences. All the shades of grey that you want to find mean nothing.

FYI. The story is the substance smoked was Marijuana Wax. A high potency marijuana derivative which is 80% THC, the active ingredient in marijuana. More potent than hashish it has a higher hallucinogenic effect. It is not comparable to alcohol regardless of the current legal status of either. Wax s the new rage so if you never heard of it I recommend you learn because your kids have heard of it.

Re: High School Lax Boys - 04/13/16 10:23 AM

As of yesterday; all involved players kicked off of team.. A one week school suspension was handed down. One known commit spot has been designated as "vacated" by that university.

Status of HC and AD unknown.

Coach reported to be "crying" as he informed his players of the situation at practice.

The HC must take the brunt of the responsibility in this case. Yes, parents should have could have done better and are suffering as a result; but the players are under the wing of the coach.

This coach has a long history of mentally beating down players. He has poor interpersonal relation skills. The result of this over the years has been for the players to show him as much respect as he shows them. There has been a loss of honor and values that stem from coaches instilling these virtues into his players and the players having pride in displaying the same.

The parents of this town sit huddled quietly and do not want to rock the boat as this coach has positioned himself as the gateway to college lax and expects the masses to bow down to him. And they do. His draconian practices are tolerated only as they have come to accept him as the savior.

It is time for this HC to come under review for his abusive ways. A psychological evaluation is not out of the question either.

Too many players have been subjected to this "crying" abusive person.

His tears I am sure are for himself and how much his image has been tarnished. He cares not one iota for his players as people nor does he take up the charge to be a true leader as one would hope and expect. His players would collectively put him through a wall rather than run through one for him.

Time for change. Drastic change.

Wow, some serious accusations there. As it seems you are close to the situation I will take you at your word but I do have a few questions as a interested observer.

Had this incident not happened and the team was winning, would this be brought up? Where has this outrage been?

GC seems to have a gateway to many of the Ivy league schools, do you think they are aware of the HC practices?

Is the a situation where while everything appears to be rosy and clean, it would not stand up to outside scrutiny?

Clearly it seems like there are issues there in GC, but its very strange that none of this has been brought to light in the past. I have to assume it is because the program has been very successful and kids have matriculated to very good college programs.

Re: High School Lax Boys - 04/13/16 11:45 AM

I don't understand how there are NO repercussions for the coach. That makes no sense to me. His teams are not as good as they use to be either so why are they afraid to make him step down. How is he not held accountable at all for his players? If 6 kids don't show up to a team dinner, why is he not searching for them. I wouldn't want my son under his watch. Sounds like "crocodile tears" on his part.

Blaming the coach ??? ! No way should the kids or maybe their parents who raised them and live with them, take any responsibility. Blame the coach. Nice job allowing kids to learn they have no accountability.

Typical!

The above poster ranting about the HC from GC has to be a disgruntled dad who is pissed his little Johnny didnt get on the field when he was in HS. Stop living through your kids. GC parents all know who you are...Yes you are not liked as a dad or parent. You have been complaining for years and now you come on here and voice your opinion. HC did nothing wrong. Kids and parents are to blame. Hc is getting the boys ready to play at the next level. Stop being a wuss...You dont like your kid being yelled at but its OK for him to smoke weed at a school event...Get off your soap box and look in the mirror...you are the REAL PROBLEM

It is time for this HC to come under review for his abusive ways. A psychological evaluation is not out of the question either.

Too many players have been subjected to this "crying" abusive person.

His tears I am sure are for himself and how much his image has been tarnished. He cares not one iota for his players as people nor does he take up the charge to be a true leader as one would hope and expect. His players would collectively put him through a wall rather than run through one for him.

Time for change. Drastic change.

Might as well sign your name there, Norm. Yikes.


thanks for taking care of that for me I was in a rush.

No anonymity needed here. I stand by my words and opinion.

there are myriad topics that can be delved into wrt what happened.

I support the families and hope that they would demand change. proper supervision and leadership by the coaches would have gone a long way as would mutual respect and loyalty. Apparently, these virtues are lost upon this coach and his staff.

Hey Bitter Betty... You sound like someone whose kid didn't get to play as much as YOU thought he should have when he played for GC and have an axe to grind ... get over your bitterness, and move on, you will be a happier person... and so will your kid who probably reflected your negativity on the field and it affected his game.
As for the young men who made a terrible mistake and exercised poor judgment and are suffering the consequences of their actions, let's hope they learn from it, move on and they can turn it into something positive.

Wow, some serious accusations there. As it seems you are close to the situation I will take you at your word but I do have a few questions as a interested observer.

Had this incident not happened and the team was winning, would this be brought up? Where has this outrage been?

GC seems to have a gateway to many of the Ivy league schools, do you think they are aware of the HC practices?

Is the a situation where while everything appears to be rosy and clean, it would not stand up to outside scrutiny?

Clearly it seems like there are issues there in GC, but its very strange that none of this has been brought to light in the past. I have to assume it is because the program has been very successful and kids have matriculated to very good college programs.

[/quote]

Good questions, all.

The underlying outrage I believe is kept submerged by most as it has become the acceptable regardless of wins/losses. No one want to mention the elephant in the room.

Not sure if colleges are aware or if they care to be involved at all. They have bigger issues to deal with at their level.

Kids have matriculated to very good institutions in spite of these practices. I do not see many posts here attesting to his great coaching and personal qualities as of yet. Perhaps some are coming?

There were a couple of teams that made great records for GC; but lets be honest and give credit where due; they all played for a great club program which developed them as players that then translated to a great performance at GC. the HC had minimal input on the development of these great players. He was handed a great team by fl$.

Re: High School Lax Boys - 04/13/16 01:39 PM

I know when my kids have gone on school sanctioned overnight trips, there is a parent and student meeting regarding behavior which will not be tolerated.
PArent will be called to retrieve their child. Kid signs it parent signs it.
Alcohol
Drugs
Are the TWO deal breakers. If caught you are done/suspended/loss of all activities including sports.

Kids know it, they sign the notice they were fully aware of consequences.
If said kids knowingly break the rules, some perhaps already 18, and some close to it, what do you expect?

How can you blame a coach for what the kids did. Nobody put weed in their bags, nobody forced them to do this. They chose to do this.

Now they have to live with the consequences.

This is sad. No parent should be happy these kids are in trouble. I feel much sympathy for them and their parents. I know in the high school my daughter attends kids smoke pot daily during school day it's awful they should be suspended. But why kick them off a team? Let them sit out at games watching their team during their suspension.

Let them attend drug lectures because the larger concern should be that they understand kids are dying from laced drugs. Let them use their free time to volunteer in programs for younger kids in their town pal programs.

But I would cry also if I was the coach cause he is probably sad that these boys are being used as the example. kids are making these poor choices everyday everywhere but punishment could be better by learning to correct what they did wrong without damaging a young mans future.

never argue with idiots. first they drag you down to their level and then they beat you with experience. thus; I wont debate you.

"support" as in understanding the need to address these issues at the familial level and in academic institutions. It was once said "It takes a village". No one parent can undo the pressure of peers as time has shown again and again. We can only hope to keep them between the lines when they are with us and hope even more so that they are being properly protected, even from themselves, when placed in the care and responsibility of others.

Re: High School Lax Boys - 04/13/16 02:17 PM

What I don't get anymore is why coaches do not punish players who get something as simple as detention or give teachers flack. Life lesson. Players who miss a practice and Lets not forget those vacations that wind up in the middle or during the season. You go away you don't play. life lesson. Not all schools had their easter break and will have it during Passover. YOU DONT GO AWAY WITHOUT repercussions. YOU DONT GET IN TROUBLE WITHOUT repercussions.

You only learn by yes sitting out, don't kick them off the team, but ban them for a few games make them watch and run the [lacrosse] out of them, make them learn. They slip up or give any lip run'em. Make their teammates step up (they'd have to if they were kicked off anyway) and if the teammates step up maybe they loose their spot naturally spot is lost.

Hopefully if they are truly remorseful and learned something, they will stay and make the team stronger in the long run, if they want to just quit because they cant take it let them, let them show their true colors.

Maybe I am to old school but that is how you do it. It is not how you fall down but how you get up.

Very well said. The iron fist in GC starts with the HC and his "club" program. Everyone is afraid of repercussions.

The word is many more kids left that hotel room right before the AD caught them. If that many kids were involved, and it was that apparent what was going on in the hotel, the HC did nothing to stop it and I would believe was ignoring the issue. The fact the AD was there made this come to light.

Let's get this straight, the Coach or his staff caught the offenders. That shows that he was doing his job and he did not sweep it under the rug. Sounds like he should get a pat on the back for having integrity.

I do not think that was the case, the AD caught them.

Truth is the AD caught the kids and that is why all this happened. These idiots had the room right across the hall from the AD and when she went to enter her room she could smell the pot. Knocked and they answered. She is the one who caught them.

Not sure what would have happened if coach caught them. From what I know 2 starters and not that great of a season so far. Last thing he needs is to lose 2 starters.

You have no idea what you're talking about. The HC is a great guy and would kill for all of his players. You're clearly a pissed off parent whose kid isn't playing. Stop causing useless drama the HC did nothing wrong. You are the real problem.

Re: High School Lax Boys - 04/13/16 03:19 PM

I also heard it was the AD who caught them and if that's true, where was the coach? Shouldn't he have a better idea of where his players were while a team dinner was going on. And why is the AD at an away game? Must have been some reason that she needs to travel with the boys lacrosse team.
