Is that what they said at tryouts? Yikes. In my opinion if done the right way it could be done. Make it more of a developmental team, different schedules, cheaper price. But that won't happen. Just like 2023 last year, when you just take everyone that is the product you put on the field. I don't like to judge but baffled that parents would pay that much considering what they are getting.
I was wondering if channy would do the same thing this year, I guess it's just more of the same.

I believe development is that plan for the 3rd team but assume channy will want his money. All teams getting 10 tourney and winter training as part of the tuition per his little parents chat last night. Last year it was 7 tourneys and pay as you go in the winter.

2 or 3 fall, 2 or 3 spring and 5 summer is not really overwhelming. At some point they need to play.

The C team will be equalivant to other organizations B teams & as you get older the talent gets that much better. Their A team is going to be faniminal if they pick the right players.

Lots of solid kids to choose from. Just worry how many were there to get an early workout before committing to another club, or go back to their existing club.

Yes, there are additional admissions requirements to get in besides where you played lacrosse in elementary school. Some may not believe that....I'll let you in on a secret. There are kids at Chaminade who never even played lax. Shocker!!

Oh yeah....and there are kids that have played for a certain coach who were unable to get into Chaminade

In total maybe (2025/2024) Attempts to suggest that boys are defecting from WP to Taz with your "tomatoe helmet" innuendo is lame. Not saying it wasn't the club but I think we all know what you were insinuating. Unnecessary

O'Shea with O'Reilly are great coaches. Depends where else you are thinking of going. Express you will get fall, winter, spring/summer practices & fall tournaments. Depends what you are looking for. O'Shea & O'Reilly will develop your son. They did mine.

At Taz at least 5 -8 players for the 2024 team were wolfpackers. They wore town team helmets (ESM, bayport blueprint etc). No orange helmets on the field, maybe some gloves. Don't know about 2025 wasn't watching and didn't go to Wolfpack tryouts.

It's amazing what the Taz Daddies will make up. Just because a kid has a BBP or ESM helmet doesn't make them a member of the WP. I hope you also realize that WP tryouts were the same date as Taz. Time to finish mopping the floors for you.

Went to a few tryouts this year. Just to see what was really out there. Lots of talent that's lost. With these big programs not doing the right thing. It's open the door for others programs to pop up and make a difference When you see it with your Owen eyes. And not from a persons mouth You will understand So like I said lots of good lacrosse players out there just don't know where to go after the bigger team say no.

Taddies and their lying ways. Do these guys do anything else with their lives? They lose to every team that the WP beat at some point, but only care about beating the 91 WP last season. And then make up stories about TAZ tryouts and the WP kids that were there. 1 kid left the WP for Taz..that's it! Get over it. Sad thing is the guy writing this is probably a dad of a kid who rides the pine like the other 13 they don't use on the sidelines.

Not a good sign when top players leaving. AA better focus on these younger years or by the time black ice gets recruited he will have nothing coming up.

A bad coach/experience can take down a grade. just ask 91 with their 2024 b team. oh right the don't have one

Igloo is a strong program, and they will fix whatever it takes. Except for black ice, they have been around for ONLY 2 SEASONS. IF people did leave, I am sure they have their reasons, and that is fine. Will they be the best, nope. Will they be competitive, definitely. Will the kids have a blast and get better....without a doubt.

Great guy who makes sure he is heard. He actually coaches and teaches the kids. If you are looking for a good experience if your boy isn't the best of the best but wants to work hard and get better Tony B is the right guy.

very well said and agree. And if you notice, his yelling is 95% positive. Enthusiasm the better word.

no, but something tells me that its more then the 200$ difference. Most of these large travel teams are going to be close. Igloo total cost includes everything. Entry fees, everything. No surprises. At the end of the season, its probably close to a 3 or 4 way tie for most expensive. Nice discount for returners on Igloo this year.

Not a cheap sport anymore, anywhere.

he's conflicted and spread too thin. Also that type of "enthusiasm" doesn't motivate young boys. Just makes them play tentative. He's at his best coaching clinics for the little ones.

He's committed - over 85 practices and he's at every single one - if the coaches are committed make sure your kid is as well - very rare to find a coach who is this dedicated - why are you paying all that money then... he's going to push as hard as he can... stick with PAL if you just want your kid to have fun and run around for exercise....

My son doesn't play for him but I've seen him coach and talked with him. He seems like a great guy & coach. Stop the bashing!
If he was a jerk I could understand but people are just jealous or not happy unless they are bashing someone.

Great guy, solid coach but if they really did have 85 practices, which they didn't the team should have been much better. They had 80+ kids at tryouts to chose from and they ended up being just a decent team. We'll see how it goes this year.

You guys are insane. The kids had a absolute blast. Were we the best team out there, no. Not close. Did the kids get better? Yes, much. Tony scheduled an additional 10-20 practices. Was at every one of them. Enthusiastic all the way. Judging a group of 10 year olds on win - loss records is insane.

For some reason people love bashing Igloo. Their pricing model was deemed expensive two years ago. We never paid another dime in additional fees. Now, you look at the rest of the teams, and Igloo is not the most expensive anymore. Especially for returners. Our coaches actually come to practice. They actually care for each and every kid, not just the top group.

Late tryouts this year will hurt Igloo, but cant fault anyone on that. AA actually trying to give the kids August off.

The bar lowers every year to make that team. With a 25 player roster they basically will take anyone who shows up this year.

It's a shame because they were a decent team last year but now they need to start over again.

So all these teams that these parents Are sending these kids to teams that are 4,000! So in 4 years that's 16,000$. When you see it on paper it puts it in Perspective, what really these parents thinking? Good luck on waiting for your call from the multiple teams that you are trying out for which you paid &75 for, etc

Did express field a 3rd team? Did 24 get a second team? How many team will there be this year at this age? The saddest part is 9 1 can not field a 2nd team at 2024.

It's not bitching more than weird that the giant Orange can't field a 2nd team but 24 can.

Sometimes the 2nd & 3rd teams from an organization get ignored. Express can field a 3rd team because they know the coaches assigned are good developmental coaches. I'm not sure about 24, but people must feel that if they signed up for the 2nd team. The big Orange's 2nd coach moved to Express probably for that reason. Their 2nd teams use to get ignored unless you had that coach. All they care about is their top team, which is why they don't have a 2nd team.

Make your son an A player and you wouldn't have to worry about a B team. Seems pretty simple to me

Sometimes you need that developmental coach to become an A player. And not every kid will be an A player no matter how much their daddy tries!

"Make your son an A player". Seriously? Share the formula with us as it must be some magic elixir that you are more aware of than the rest of the parents out here/there. Maybe you have one for other sports as well? My son loves soccer, basketball, even that non contact sport golf. Wish I knew how to make him just like Jordan Speith. Wonder where I can buy that????

Spoken like a parent who has held his kid back to be on a A team!
What's the matter with these people? Holding back there kids! To play lacrosse?? These Parents should be ashamed of themselves. Why do all other sports have a fair aged based system? This is a great sport, and its getting a bad rep. You can't hold back these older kids. besides being unfair, The injuries are adding up. They need to enforce these age requirements building a safer sport where kids can develop and have fun. Believe me as a parent it will ease the tension on the sidelines knowing that the other teams are plying fair at the same age. PLAYING FAIR!

All four are great teams, but not sure how anyone can say that Madlax is not #1, unless you are trying to rank them based on a handful of Summer tourneys where Madlax was missing key players that didn't travel or took the summer off. When Madlax was at full strength, it swept its Spring league (which included Bethesda), and beat both Taz and WP. Taz has NEVER beaten Madlax, and some of Madlax's wins over Taz have been rather lopsided. Taz came close to beating a depleted Madlax squad at LaxFest, but still couldn't get it done.

WP would disagree. Farmingdale college event. But then Taz would disagree 4-0 and so it goes as BLC has noted wins. Great 4 teams

WP went down to MD and lost to Madlax by 2 when they had a full squad. And then beat them by a margin at Laxfest (the first game on that Sat by a WIDE margin. Taz will give them a run for their money also. Putting them at #1 is something a MD dad would say. The team depends on 1 big middy and 1 attackman to do all the work. Any team on this list can beat each other at any given time. Stop with your "take the spring off or didn't travel" BS. They are very beatable.

Same poster that responded to you earlier here.

I hear you. Honestly I find it a bit troubling that grown adults know so much about teams of 10 year olds that their kids are not on. How do they know about which 10 year old <club x> added this year? How do they know that 2024 <club y> is "almost, but not quite as good" as 2024 <club z>. It's borderline disturbing how some of these folks are such 10 year old lacrosse fanboys that they "know" all of this and can rank teams of 10 year old boys, and puff their chests and say "yeah my son's 10 year old team is way better than that garbage 10 year scrub team"

You are saying this and the team has never even had a practice and the coach has yet to even reach out to the team. Did they upgrade, sure but WP and Taz are already practicing and they both had limited turnover. Enjoy a lot of 3rd and 4th place finishes Express Mommy

A few things you will need to get used too with that coach:

-He'll miss half the practices
-Practices will be once a week max (Taz & Pack will be 3x per)
-No winter training (You will be paying the B team coach for winter training)
-Coach won't know your kids name outside of the top 6-7 kids
-He will miss 2-3 tourneys per year.
-His focus is on is HS team and his 2019 team

Good luck and enjoy, coach's lack of commitment will hurt what could be a talented team.

Sounds like a parent who's kid was cut. Half the team is new. Excited to see how this team turns out. Heard they are starting to practice. The coaches 2019 team is now committed so he will have more time for this team. You may be surprised.

You might be surprised that all of his 2019's are not committed and still has to work with his HS kids.

Stop it, everyone has not started to practice yet. Sure Taz and WP never stop but most top clubs start next week and you know plenty of clubs won't start until 2017.

A few things you will need to get used too with that coach:

-He'll miss half the practices
-Practices will be once a week max (Taz & Pack will be 3x per)
-No winter training (You will be paying the B team coach for winter training)
-Coach won't know your kids name outside of the top 6-7 kids
-He will miss 2-3 tourneys per year.
-His focus is on is HS team and his 2019 team

Good luck and enjoy, coach's lack of commitment will hurt what could be a talented team.


This coach is also responsible/influential for probably for more college commitments in the past 20 years than anyone.

Your going to say its a bad thing that his 1st priority is getting his 2019 team all committed first? Once that is done it seems reasonable that the 2024 team will be treated the same way. If the crazy's really are as crazy as I think then they should be falling over each other to get a spot on his team.

Kids are in 5th grade chill out...

The team that everyone is talking about, that has a X in its name. That has 3 teams for 2024/ Is the most expensive one out there. By far.
Why anyone would pay that for a coach THAT NEVER SHOWS....

Parents/Kids follow great coaching and that's what these kids are getting. It's all about development at this age.

True. How come the development of WP and Taz are so far ahead of the age group. Watching those teams is a different game completely. Are the coaches that good at those 2 teams?

Both teams for the more part have been playing together for 3+ years and have coaches that go above and beyond with year round practice. Sure they have great coaches but It's just a much bigger commitment with those teams.

Both the WP and Taz have a majority of the better boys at this age. As of right now they are far ahead of everyone else in this age group. All 4 coaches give it their all and the parents are behind their sons 100%. I agree with the above poster watching those 2 teams play against other teams and each other is a whole other level.

And being on the best team doesn't always mean it will be the best situation for your son.

It also helps when you take the starters to one end of the field to practice and the rest of the players to the other end with a dad assistant for duck duck goose

Don't post if you don't have your facts straight!
One - it's not the most expensive one out there, even with the new price this year that includes almost everything and you get what you pay for! Other clubs that are less you get very few practices & 1/2 the amount of tournaments!
Two - the coach that coaches the 2nd & 3rd team is always there! Unless something major in life comes up. He threw in so many extra practices last year!! For FREE! It was the kids who didn't show! NOT the coach! So don't go posting when you have no ideas what you are talking about! Try getting Igloo's numbers and comparing...

Look at every age group. Historically, Big Orange and one other team are heads and tails above the rest. Many lax dads put there athletic kids in really early. 2nd grade. These kids can throw and catch and there's generally a kid that can take faceoffs; that's what makes them the best in 2nd and 3rd grade. All of the early talent lands on 2 teams. However, that generally ends in 5th grade. For all past age groups, this is the year that the gap closed and more competitive teams came to play. I'm not saying the Taz and WP won't still be top 2, but teams will be closer. Look no further than the 2023's. Express and Bandits were the top 2 clubs for 3 years. No one else was even close. But last year Igloo, Shore 2 Shore, Warriors all came knocking. Bandits lost to Igloo, Express lost a few games. My prediction is that more talented players are going to start playing travel this year and some of the non-starters from WP and Taz will move to other teams. It will make for a great year of lax.

Sorry bud, I know igloos numbers. It is posted on their site. Express is not, and for a reason. BUT, I know what they are charging. Looks less then Igloo...but.....scratch the surface. Igloo MUCH cheaper for returners. And for non returners it is close to the same, but Express not listing their winter practice. So its more.

Does that make one better then the other, nope. Just giving the facts.

I agree with this comment 100%. 2-yrs ago it was all WP and last year Taz matched up with them. This year you will see Express step up to play with both of them.Its called parity. Its part of development. The taz and WP parents don't need to get so defensive. It will be more fun and more competition.

Warning ---- Taz Vs Wolfpack discussions can cause irritable Bowel, dizziness, blindness, jealously, rage, delusions, loss in confidence of your son's ability, and an overall disgust for any 10 year old that can play Lax at a high level.
If any of these symptoms occur please consult your PAL Coach immediately and arrange a fall clinic to show you that your son is at least still better than the town kids......

My son plays on this Express team and I hope all the parents learn that nothing good comes from shooting your mouth off about our team or any other team. Hope we all have a great season and the boys have fun and play some good lacrosse.

Sounds like the person shooting their mouth off comes from a town team and all the daddy talks about is how his son made the Express A team.

The little guys have the adv in many ways because quicker at this age. This will change and they will get pushed around as they cannot dodge and create effectively. There is some exceptions but few. The athletic kids who have decent size and are assertive will win out. They may not be coordinated yet. So parents of shortys who are skilled because they play a lot enjoy it while it lasts. If both parents are relatively short then enjoy now. Say what you want but this is deadly accurate.

Size is a very big factor in this sport in this day and age. The days of a 5"9 kid being able to hang at the collegiate level is diminishing quickly. Yes if you are a 5"10 Phenom you can make it but most are not. Look at the top 25 schools to play at rosters, the attackman are 6ft + 200+ lbs. the middys are even bigger. Defenseman are forced to be big to handle these size players. Even outside of lacrosse the athletic world is getting bigger and bigger. Compare athletes sizes now to 20 years ago. Big change. If you don't think this is happening go to Dicks and look at the Under Armours mannequins and how big they portray athletes. And that's not a stupid example because the mannequins are wearing the size clothes that are on the shelf next to them. Of course skills matter and always will but size will matter just as much. Both of them and you have a serious threat on the field. My sons are on the smaller size so I see it first hand how they get pushed around even though their skill level is pretty high.

If your son is the best we would all know who he is. Lax world is a very small place on LI. Stop your BS, either step up your kid to face the real talented boys or go back you your wife and tell her how great your son is. Dead beat

Have seen it play out time and time again...its not just size although size does play into it...once you start getting into the middle school years when it picks up...the better players have the combination and balance of a variety of factors including skill, athleticism (speed/size/agiligy), IQ and aggressiveness/touchness (intangibles)...when they get to middle and high school...all the kides, at least on the better teams, are all insanely good....they tend to have the unique mix above all to varying degrees...I have learned and watched that all things being equal the determining factor between a top 5% player and the top 1-3%s players (the ones going to the traditional powerhouses, etc.) are the intangibles (being aggressive to goal, toughness, competitiveness to win, etc.)...after that everything else kicks in....now there are some exceptions where a shorter/smaller person comes in but again this is only a few (maybe a team has 1 oddly smaller attackman or a middie)...this can change year to year (intangible and physical attributes)once kids hit puberty...I laugh when these 5ft 9 dads think there 4th grade kid who is a middle is the best in the world...he is gonna be quite surprised when they put the bigger kid who plays LSM on him...oh no! what is poor pappa gonna do know????? boo hoo

The "Best" hidden 2024 Goalie, the phenom D1 [lacrosse] midfielders, nauseating ranking between touting WP vs. Taz, of all the years I have my boys playing on the 2024 board takes the cake. There is no other year message board that is this amusing. I have to guess that most 2024s are only children or the only boy. Or parents (can't just blame Dads anymore) are unrealistic or trying to live through there kids.

Even if you really felt your 5th grade child was the "best" goalie on Long Island what balls does it take to post that? Did it look good when you clicked "view post"?

I saw Syracuse announced their freshman recruiting class. 16 players! You think travel playing time is bad with 22 kids. Good luck with 3x that amount. Everyone on this board gets nuts about their kid playing in college. Focus on using the lax to get him into the best academic school possible. College lax goes by fast, especially with a roster of 60+

A lot of invitationals are happening this season. 2 best teams on LI get invited down to MD to play their 2 or 3 best teams. Then the MD teams come to LI for the same set up. It keeps the top teams sharp.

Could not agree more on the trash talking. However the point that was trying to get across, is that as the boys get older other teams will start to get better.There wont be only 1 or two teams that dominate.Other teams will become more competitive.It happens in every age group.

Igloo? Most of the good kids LEFT Igloo for other A teams. They filled those spots with kids from B teams. Decent kids but not a A team. They will play in B brackets or easy tournaments, watch. They may win, but it will be B team competition, not A.

There are only two A teams in this grade and neither took an igloo kid. Who does your kid play for? Probably a B team like mine.

Realistically, the entire grade level is weak. To only have enough quality players to make 2 highly competitive teams is a shame. Look at 2023 and 2022. There are WAY more top level teams. Even for Big Orange to only have one team speaks volumes of how down a year it is.

Why do you care so much, was your son one of the kids that were cut or didn't make the team?
Or give the organization a call their number is listed on their site
I just called them...they are sorry you son didn't make it. Maybe next year for little Johnny

Igloo? Most of the good kids LEFT Igloo for other A teams. They filled those spots with kids from B teams. Decent kids but not a A team. They will play in B brackets or easy tournaments, watch. They may win, but it will be B team competition, not A.


There are only two A teams in this grade and neither took an igloo kid. Who does your kid play for? Probably a B team like mine.


Please keep this nonsense going. It's entertainment while I table my morning deuce. Get a life!!!

In most cases, yes, but not on this one. My son is on one of them. The age group is mediocre. Can you explain to me how it isn't??

But you are acting like that 2nd tier of teams is mediocre, when they are actually solid. Express 2x, Outlaws, Igloo, are all solid teams and there are some really solid town teams at this age too. Commack, BBP, ESM, RVC, etc. Sure Taz and WP are the cream of the crop but there are plenty of of good teams at this age. There has been some really competitive games the last few years between teams not named WP and Taz. Call them B teams if you like but it's good solid lacrosse for a bunch of 10 year olds.

Agree. WP has the BBP and Commack kids playing on the team. Taz is also made up of some solid PAL kids also. Impressive 10 yr old lax all around

Not true at all, unless you are a mommy from Manhasset and thought your little crew were the top kids. All of their key starters are back and they upgraded every position through tryouts.

One of the top kids went to Taz and was not replaced but they will see where they stand on the 10th.

And how would you know this? Especially since it couldn't be any further from the truth. You just don't like Express. Every starter came back. All the ones who left weren't asked back. They were replaced with much better players.

Let's be honest here...one 2nd and sometimes 3rd line middie went to Taz to be a backup. He was replaced by Express

The problem would be that all the starts came back and express did not upgrade the starts.

That's a joke, right? Because the starters on the midfield line are far great players and they added to the attack and defense starting lines. You will see. All top players.

Good players. Part time coach who does bare minimum. No chance with the big boys who go 3x a week all year. For sure will pound igloo and outlaws though

The "big boys " ?? Did you just say that ? Hahahahah. You are a loser. I'll bet your "big boy" will have trouble making your Wolfpack team in a few more year when all the other kids open eyes of the coaches. The "new flavor" always tastes better. You will see.

How many new players were picked up by Taz this year? How many went elsewhere? I can't imagine there was too much turnover.

Funny 2 different posters and a lost same response. Calm down pops. It's only 5th grade. Your little Rabil still has plenty of time to hate it , not grow, level off . Hopefully not but most of the time , that's what happens . So take a deep breath and talk to something other then lacrosse with him.

Big games in 5th grade? Good grief. You're the one who's pumping up his head with this. "Son, get to sleep, you have a BIIIIG GAME tomorrow". These are 5th graders!

Alot of haters out there. 5th grade dads being put down because of "Big Games." You guys should of seen 4th grade games! Anyone who has seen a pack-Taz Game knows whats up.
I hope one day my boy can experience that level of commitment responsibility and team work.

Good grief

It's not THAT odd... You are at tournaments and sometimes watch another game, when your son is not playing. Back off a bit!

My kids have been playing travel lacrosse for years. My little guy is 10-yrs old. I am aware of certain towns that find it ok and part of the norm to hold back there kids for sports.But with this 2024 age group, I have noticed and inquired so (not making assumptions) on all of the top teams and in most cases up to and over 80% of the team is made up of kids that should be in 6th grade. So go ahead start the banter about if your kid is good enough he would make the team. Well...He did make the team! but I still find it ridiculous that we as parents and more important, the club owners find this ok.

While I can't vouch for the %, I have to say, when I look at my now 13 yo, who has always played on age-appropriate 2021 travel teams, if he had been playing on a 2022 team, he would have been very dominant due to his athleticism alone. Speed and strengthwise, it would have been a joke - he wouldn't even have needed to be more than adequately skilled to achieve that dominance. I just don't see the logic in pretending that a boy is better than he is by playing down!

The people that don't think there are Big games at this level are the ones who have sons that either play on a low level teams or just sit the bench on a mediocre team. Or at no point were competitive in their own life. Being excited for a Big game is what puts the boys on top teams playing at a top level. This is not just about Lax but any sport they play or even the bigger picture which is Life. At what point does any game get big or competitive? I saw this with my older son " oh they're only 10,11,12,13 all of a sudden they are 16-17 and being left behind by the rest of the boys who took the road of getting excited for big games and treating them as such. I am by no means saying your kid should be miserable playing the sport or not take time off to be a kid, but if he is going to stick with it and has aspirations to play on the top tier teams than the road starts with his drive towards each and every game and what he can bring to the field for his team. Not much different than life.

they are called games for a reason. A "big" game is one the mets lost last night, cost their organization millions in lost revenue just from one or two possibly three series. Now thats a big game. Our 5th graders playing for the Hershey Squirt cup not so big. I dont care what team you are on there are no big games in 5th grade.

Again, it's only a big game to you, in your own mind. Kids at this age don't care nearly as much as you do. You really need to get over yourselves and enjoy your kids being 10 years old. The kids forget "big game" losses 15 minutes after the game, while you lay awake wondering what might have been, thinking about how you're gonna spin the loss on BOTC

Last year my son , who is a top player at another age group asked me sadly just to drop him off at the game and let him play without me on sidelines. Yes sidelines , not on the field like a lot of us nuts wind up. He said he and some of his friends get nervous and embarrassed by us. Truth. I gave him his request and he torn it up as he does most of the time. Now I sit a few yards away , by myself. People , the kids hate us before , during and after these "big games" as you call them. Trust me.

I see no harm in treating every game like its a big game, every test like its the sat's . regardless of level- if the competitive juices are not flowing for any game, than why bother playing, yes, I think the parents take this very seriously as 1000's of dollars are spent and countless hours at the field, so what . I see nothing wrong with having a child get a good night sleep before a tournament, a test, a recital, whatever. if you don't take travel seriously, than why play . of course the big game does not matter in the grand scheme of life, but. why do anything in life half assed

Up until about 12, one year or even less equates to 'miles' of difference between kids and their abilities and athleticism, so the whole "what difference does it make" comments are very uniformed. Arguing about holdbacks from 13 yo and up is pretty much where that argument falls apart. That said, the sport should be age based, NOT grade based for obvious reasons, and USAL seems to be trying to move that way.

Wait a second. You are stating that 80% of all the 2024 kids are hold backs? Thats nuts. My kid is on a town and travel team and none of the kids on his teams should be in 6th grade. His travel team does have 2 december birthdays, so I can give you those kids as "holdbacks" but that's it. 2 of 45 is not 80%

I agree with you 100%... difference between most 10 year olds & 9 year olds is very noticeable. Even within 10 year olds is a huge difference. A january birthday vs a september birthday is huge. Tougher to see differences between a 15 & 14 year old.

And USAL very much may want to move to an age based system vs grade based, but they don't have the muscle to pull it off. Until the clubs make the change, you'll continue to see teams build by grad year.

But we're not talking about a full year. We''re talking about 3 months, and in many cases, less. Also, since when does USAL have a day in anything??

USAL has the muscle if they want to ue it - they can make it so the insurance coverage offered through membership is only valid if a league/tournament/etc plays in age based formats. USAL has already carved out exceptions to the age based ideal that cover areas where participation rates are lower, but LI and MD are not that!

If a holdback beats up on an age appropriate player so be it, but it will always be just that. An older kid playing a younger kid.
Life is unfair and so are youth sports. Get used to it.

I'm so freaking tired of people coming on and complaining about holdbacks. Guess what?? There are kids that are bigger, stronger, faster, more athletic, have a higher lax IQ, etc... than your son. It will always be this way. Do you know why US Lax doesn't do anything about it??? Because it's youth lacrosse and it doesn't matter to anyone but you. That's the real reason. They have much more pressing concerns than your kid playing against someone that is, on average, 6 months older. This is all meaningless. The sooner you accept it, the easier your life will be! Just let it go.

Spoken Like a parent who has held his kid back just for lax....All other youth sports have age requirements..so should Youth Lax! And when they do your bigger stronger faster hold back will have to sit the bench when playing a game fairly with boys his age.

Same coversation over and over. This is the way it is. Is it fair no. Have your son play another sport. If he chooses to play this sport, deal with it. I don't mean to sound rude, but there isn't anything left to say on this. Its pretty simple deal with it or leave.

You Are mistaken. It should and does matter. If there is no one governing the youth tournaments then they will and are becoming more dangerous and violent. I see it all the time. The coaches are recruiting older and older kids to participate.This IS done.so that they have more wins more wins equal more $. So as the hold backs are much more common then so does the playing down concept come into play.When does it stop.You Need to have a set rule for AGE not grade.

Except for TAZ no 2024 team matters in this tournament. If the WP is not there to play them, its a cake walk for the team.

Nice try DB - my sons are both solid kids who also play football, so absolutely no worry there! But, as a youth coach, player safety is at the top of the list - therein lies the difference between actually running a league/sport/team versus the self-centered, ignorant, and uninformed parent.

You got the wrong guy. I am defending Recon against this guy from 24 slandering Recons name claiming they cheat when Recon has never had a 2024 team.
We all know 24 used holdbacks at Viper , JDRF and SFS.

only by 6 goals? are you serious? that is the silliest thing i have ever heard. If your team could beat a team by 20 would you want that? or would you want your coach to show some class and move the ball and not rub it in anyone's face? just curious what type of jack [lacrosse] you are.

If Express A doesn't make a statement Channy will have a heartattack


They lost to the two top teams last year by Wide margins. There is no statement being made this season.

I guess we will see soon enough. 1/2 the team is new. Will they have it together for the first tournament? I'm sure they will at least give a good fight.


Not so much. Bye schwajle. See you in June. Que the recent college grad assistants.

JDRF & SFS???? Really, you are going to complain about rosters for those.....
- SFS is basically a charity pick up game, and if you are concerned with "winning" at SFS, you really are missing the point of the day
- JDRF is a 3 game jamboree, not pool play with playoffs. Again, missing the point of the day if you are worried about standings and cheaters.

Both help generate money for great causes. If you want to complain about a team using holdbacks, or non-roster players at a championship style tournament, go ahead.....I won't even bash you for complaining that it was at Viper, which is basically a town tourney (oops, I did)

Just love reading all the chatter about 5th grade LAX. I WAS one of the maniacal Dads on the sidelines, desperate for my son to perform at his very best every time he took the field. Played for one of the often mentioned teams(elite A teams) for past 2 years. Now on new team with coach that treats the kids as individuals within a team, emphasizing having fun while practicing 2x/week and really improving stick skills, team play and field IQ. FACT-half the kids playing travel will either be out of the game by 7/8 grade, or will be surpassed by better athlete who picks up a a stick little later and kick butt on pure athleticism. I for one am no longer taking 5th grade lacrosse like it is anything more than 5th grade lacrosse. Decided not to add parental pressure to a 10/11 year old as the travel/club game is pressure enough. As long as my son is improving, having fun and getting good coaching, likely he will continue playing vs hating it 3-4 years from now. And if not than so what? No scholarship?? He also plays travel soccer and CYO Basketball. Just like a 10/11 year old should. Happy raving to those living vicariously thru their children.

I brought my son and his buddies down to watch yesterday (his team was not in the tourney). They have friends on both 24 and Legacy. Thought both teams looked really good - was great to watch the game at that level. Was also great that the boys took a lot from watching a high-level game like they played - so, instead of fart jokes on the car ride home, they actually talked about what went right and what did not for both teams.

There was no competition at this tournament. Its time to only play in tournaments that are invites. Taz, WP, Bethesda, Madlax should only be playing each other, As your team gets better and you feel you can compete with them the invitation will be extended to your team. To enter into these tournaments and beat teams by 12-13 goals is a waste of time for everyone. Your son only gets better by playing the better kids , its that simple. Your kid out there scoring goals and making passes means nothing if he's doing it against B players. Even scrimmaging a lower level team is a waste at this point. Eventually when your son gets to middle school and steps on the field with these A players the game is going to spin him into the ground. You cant build your skills against lower level players and expect to step on a field with boys who have been playing on these top teams for 4+ years and your boy is going to be able to handle it. I've seen this with my 2019 son. Playing against low level teams gives a boy a false sense of success and the fall from that is much harder than getting out there with the top boys and trying to compete at their best or worse they get to a team with top players and sit the bench because they were never put in a true competitive atmosphere. Its no different with my daughters team so this is not a boy\girl situation.

Definitely not a boy/girl issue. It's clearly a you issue. Do you tell everyone at work how great your kids are? You must be a blast to be next to at tournaments. Better yet, you should forego tournaments altogether and just start hitting showcasss. You're absolutely crazy. And, I'll go one further. Maryland teams have no interest in trekking up to LI. They have fall and spring leagues where they play the top teams on a weekly basis. They don't need your kid to make them better.

Invitationals only in 5th grade... what a dope.

Eventually when your son gets to middle school and steps on the field with these A players the game is going to spin him into the ground. You cant build your skills against lower level players and expect to step on a field with boys who have been playing on these top teams for 4+ years and your boy is going to be able to handle it. I've seen this with my 2019 son. Playing against low level teams gives a boy a false sense of success and the fall from that is much harder than getting out there with the top boys and trying to compete at their best or worse they get to a team with top players and sit the bench because they were never put in a true competitive atmosphere. Its no different with my daughters team so this is not a boy\girl situation.


Definitely not a boy/girl issue. It's clearly a you issue. Do you tell everyone at work how great your kids are? You must be a blast to be next to at tournaments. Better yet, you should forego tournaments altogether and just start hitting showcasss. You're absolutely crazy. And, I'll go one further. Maryland teams have no interest in trekking up to LI. They have fall and spring leagues where they play the top teams on a weekly basis. They don't need your kid to make them better.

Invitationals only in 5th grade... what a dope.

Suckers or suck-ups!!!! Every one of you!!! Those who think that their son is the next Paul Rabil are in for a rude awakening. He might be good now but chances are, with lacrosse expanding around the country, he will not even be offered a scholarship.
Then you got the suck-up parents who will say anything to get the kid more playing time. Praise the coach then talk sh.itt about him after he leaves. Pathetic!!
Then you have the parents of the kid barely playing but happily forking over a couple of thousand just to say your kid plays travel lacrosse. Owners must be laughing all the way to the bank! Fillers!! Pathetic!! And these same parents who don't mind when their son sits to let an older, illegal kid play just to get a t-shirt!!

TAZ has played up and all but one of there scrimmages all last year where against 2023 teams as well this year already. The difference is they just don't brag about it. Bottom line is which ever team your son plays on, if there happy great if not move on. Very simple, don't understand all the back and forth crap.

Sorry, but your kid isn't the next Paul Rabil. I hate to be the one to burst your dreams. Just because you turned out to be a nobody, don't live vicariously through him. I'm sure he will do better than you since you set the bar so low for him. Fork over another 2 grand please!

I'm not saying they would beat Taz, but they can certainly beat a team with a few Taz players. And the rest of the teams, besides Express (who scares no one) I've never even heard of.

This is not last season. Teams change every year. Losing to an older club looks a lot better than losing to a club on grade level. It's a chump move. The team is not nearly good enough to be playing up. I hope the kids and parents enjoy spending a Saturday getting beat down.

I don't have a problem with teams playing up, but play in the B division. We're already missing the two top teams in the division. Some people actually don't care about T-shirts and just want their son to play competitive lacrosse. Playing a team that's a year younger is not going to make our clubs any better. They're too small and theres going to be a lot of tears.

I just saw that every A team in that organization is playing up. So according to you, every one is avoiding their year. These teams may get beat , but I admire people challenging themselves. Come springtime, when lax is in full swing, no football/soccer conflicts 3 or 4 times a week. All these teams will play each other several times. Worry about your own son chief. Wishing 9 year old kids to get beat down, that shows what type of person you are.

If every Org did this everyone would be playing grade based.
They have no idea how good the grade based talent is until they actually play a tournament there. So silly. Playing UP sounds flashy but a beat down playing up and a beat down on grade is still a beat down.
For all those PC people..... Beat down=a lopsided game where a team gets outplayed on both sides of the field.---- Zero development value.

At 10 years old I prefer my son playing against kids his own age. I wouldn't want him playing up nor do I want him playing kids younger than him. Here is a big difference in size at this age. Just play your age so everyone gets good practice.

No one is wishing for 9 year olds to get beat down; however, teams play tournaments to win. Size and strength are competitive advantages that can and should be used in the game of lacrosse. How is it helping a team playing at grade level if they can't play as hard as they have been taught to play because their opponent is tiny? Also, they are not as good a team as the older teams from that organization. The don't compare to WP last year or Bandits two years ago. There is no comparison. Play B divisions. Leave A divisions to teams that play A level lacrosse.

If anyone here thinks the Blast or Geese can even compete with the Taz\WP at a tournament you should leave the sport now because you are as clueless as they come. Not only would there be a 15 goal difference but they would get hurt physically. I've seen all 4 teams play and its not even close. You have all lost your minds. You don't know how good these 2024 teams are until you play against them. Speed and IQ are light years ahead. I've watched Blast\Geese kids run away from a ball instead of getting hit. This is not something you see on Taz \WP even during last years season. Stay on age until you are ready or watch your kids come off the field stunned by what just happened to them. Unnecessary across the board

Playing up makes a lot of sense if you look outside the microcosm of Long Island lacrosse. When you take a LI team down to Maryland, every kid is bigger than them. Just a fact and Im not going to bother speculating as to why that is.

Regardless, when the kids play against bigger kids they have to use skills they may not need against kids their own age. Simply put - move the ball or get crushed. It is a good way to see what breaks on your team when faced with kids who are physically more powerful than yours. It is a smart move.

It makes no sense if you look outside the microcosm of Maryland. If you get beat up bu big kids on LI or Md, you're still getting beat up by big kids. And, to your argument, if size was the only concern, then move to the B divisions so that you're not wasting the time of the A division teams.

Exactly! Do you think 5th graders WANT to play 4th graders who think they are all that? I hope Blast gets their a$$ kicked. Stay in your own year A bracket. You have good competition in this tournament. You deserve an A$$ wiping if you play up.

Blast won 5-3 last year vs Express...you are acting like Blast are so much better.


Exactly why they won't play them.

5 - 3? Really? Was at that game, playing next and it was about 8 or 9 to 3 and the dope entering the scores put in a 5. Don't pin your hopes to that dream.

All these so called 2024 A teams had better soundly beat the 2025 team, thats all I can say. If they lose, the mommies and daddies will all have lots of explaining to do at work when they try to spin how this happened to their little Pannell.

yes, you are so right. I am so nervous.. what will my boss and colleagues think if a 2025 team beats my sons team. It would be the ultimate humiliation. I would have to resign, possibly move out of state. What a tool

Trust me, there is nothing to worry about. That team is far from what Wolfpack was last year. They would struggle in the B division. They're an average team that plays in a below average grade with no dominant teams.

Either way you slice it, the trolls will find something wrong.

If you lose, forget it. You'll never hear the end of it.
If you win by 2 goals, you should've beaten them by 15.
If you win by 15 goals, you beat up on a 4th grade team.

There is no winning for any of the A bracket teams because the trolls will talk sh*t either way.

Have a fun weekend everyone & enjoy it.

It would be 15+ goal difference 2025 Daddy. Your age group is weak and there is maybe a handful of boys that can play. You cant call yourself a strong team and run away from a hit instead of picking up a ground ball. I've watched 2025 games at 3 different tournaments last season, the ball spends more time on the ground then in the stick. You don't belong on the field with the WP or the Taz unless you want your son to walk away from the game for good. Total *** kicking. Now go back to the 2025 thread and pump your chest in the kiddie division. Joker

Wow, what a tough guy you are. My son is on that team and we all know they belong. Bring your little boy (and his 2024 team to back him up) to the parking lot and I'll let my on grade, on age son kick his fanny. Then you can see a total *** kicking you total jealous, bitter loser.

The Blast will get absolutely trounced, plain and simple,bigger , faster, stronger,more talent and field IQ..
Their coach is an idiot for going A bracket,if he was following what the elite teams in the adjoining age group do, he'd put them grade up in B at best. and against town teams.

The only thing that was aggressive about ESM in that champ game was their crazy mommies. Boy were they an annoying bunch. Guess they were expecting to win. And if you really saw the game it was clear who the aggressive team was and it wasn't ESM.

perfectly stated! I saw the same thing! But it was great competition and practice for fall ball. Just sad they were constantly adding kids as they finished playing for other teams.

Honestly as long as the kids are of age and are having fun does it matter how many teams they play on? It is the parent's job to worry about the chance the level of burn out. It happens at all levels south shore thunder 2023 and Strong island saints 2021 just to name a couple.

Express 2024 won in both brackets, great job to them. Really unsure why there win is getting broadcasted, they should have won. One express team played a town team and the other a multi town town. The Express B team had some players helping them out from their other team, not cheating at all, they needed to fill roster spots. Express A won in a really exciting game that came down to last few seconds. Let express enjoy the W, they don't get too many when wp or taz are playing in same bracket.

Haha ESM Mommy. Nice try but no cigar. Express B had no help at all from any outside team and they actually only had a 15 man roster for the finals due to other conflicts. Not one Express A kid played with them. Those boys were actually watching and cheering for them before they had to get ready for their own game. Leave the adding of players to the Longboards, that's their pathetic game.

Longboards is not a town team and those kids do not need any help. Also do you play lacrosse to lose sound like someone is a little bitter.

They don't need any help other than all the jerseys being swapped for taz kids for the finals..
The days are numbered for the little ones, move to attack ,then gone in place of bigger, faster, stronger atheletes.

afraid not. attack kids are getting bigger stronger and just as fast as the little guys.
same thing with defensemen. the size and athleticism of the kids at post h.s. level is amazing. that doesn't mean you cant enjoy watching your child play in these younger years, but if dad is 5'7 and mom is 5'0 its not a rosy picture for potential size.

The sport is being played by bigger, stronger athletes. Can a small fast player make it? Yes but they are far and few between and are rarely seen anymore. They also need to be a ridiculous player. 6'1 210-225 is an average size for a lax player at the higher levels. Not hard to look this up, check out any college roster and you will see the #s

Matt Cavanaugh was considered tiny at 5'8" 175lbs. He was dominant. Dillan Molloy is listed at 6' 220 lbs. Lots of leg strength.

Hofstra has 9 attack on their roster. 6 are below 6 feet. 2x are 5'8" and you know sizes are inflated. Similar story at Stony Brook. 6 of 11 attackers are under 6 feet.

Thanks,took your advice. Looked at Stony Brook's roster and there are 20 players that are under 6' and 200lbs. So, you're correct that it certainly helps to be 6'+ and 200+ it definitely doesn't mean a smaller player doesn't have a shot to play at that level.

Plenty of room for the under 6 foot kids. Denver has 22 of them on their roster and they are the gold standard

Look at most any D1 roster and at least 1/3 of the players are under 6' and 200lbs. Again, being a big kid certainly helps, but there are plenty of smaller players that make it to that level. Arguing about it on a 2024 forum is a little ridiculous.

Settle down, you missed my point. Cavanaugh was the exception to the rule. Molloy is not considered big at 6'; however, he's 220 pounds.

looked at syracuse, hopkins, maryland, UNC and all had 15-20 players under 6 feet tall. Cavanaugh, bitter, sankey, manny, pannell. Those are just a few of the elite MLL players that come to mine. Bigger is better all other things being equal. And players today are bigger than they we in 70,80, 90s - but you could say the same about most sports.

while you see a lot of rosters with 5'10 or 11" . sure that's under 6' but huge difference between that size and say 5'3" or 4' kids. small and crafty? that's not going to help if you are really small. there are many big, fast strong and crafty kids.

You really are thick headed aren't you? Nobody said that being a bigger player doesn't give them an advantage. But, about half of all college rosters are kids 6' and under. To say that 10 year olds that are on smaller side now will never have a chance, makes you sound stupid and uninformed.

Wrestling? They had to create a superheavyweight class because there was too much disparity. Soccer players are longer, leaner and faster while carrying more weight. To argue against nature is just dumb, dumb, dumb.

no one is arguing against nature - no doubt kids are bigger now than ever before - and harder and harder for a smaller guy to compete against a 6 foot 4 long pole who can also run with the wind., however - there is some truth to the fact that 6 foot 4 may have a tougher time defending against a smaller attackman who is actually tougher to cover than a bigger guy due to the size. im not saying its the norm, but some of these kids can get so low, it makes it harder for these bigger guys

Nope, just both tall and athletic, as opposed to crafty and teeny, tiny.

You know where they don't care about size? At the hedge fund where I work. Hit the books and be coachable and there will be spots at top academic schools which is all that matters. As soon as you get into college forget summer lax and get an internship. If you think travel lax is competitive wait until you see college kids competing for the best jobs.

Get Low? Really. Like go through his legs? Go watch a Varsity practice. Watch how a 6"4' 220lb longpole matches against a 5-foot nothing attackman. Even just in an isolated one on one drill. The long pole will drool over that matchup.

College coaches will spend time sizing the parent(s) up at a visit. Just had it happen. Even offer the height of parents/grandparents and siblings (everything helps). There is no doubt that lean 6"5' Long Island kid that can run like a gazelle is an asset on any roster and coveted by out of state ADs and boosters.

BUT this is 5th grade youth ball. The kids have not hit their growth spurt or puberty yet (except maybe the really holdbacks). Stop worrying about college and let them learn and enjoy or eventually love the sport.

Ask a varsity player. Once Schoolball starts it all changes. New kids suddenly join. Lacrosse becomes faster and there is much more contact. No more Daddy coaches or watching on the sidelines in practice. They practice or play 6 days a week. 7am practices in the rain on the weekends. The sport isn't as fun and kids move on.

Why not just let them enjoy the sport now. For now just forget how big they are or will be and where they are going to college. They are 10.

Now that is an ignorant statement. ESM has hard working dad coaches who give up their own time to coach a great bunch of hard working boys and great parents. ESM is a town team that held their own against a strong travel team that played unbelievable defense. ESM is not trash and that is sad that you would have to stoop to name calling. Shame on you.

ESM moms were not the loud ones. The one Express mom was hooting and hollering like it was the olympics. At least the ESM TOWN team did not add players to their rosters for the Championship game like Express did.

Now that is an ignorant statement. ESM has hard working dad coaches who give up their own time to coach a great bunch of hard working boys and great parents. ESM is a town team that held their own against a strong travel team that played unbelievable defense. ESM is not trash and that is sad that you would have to stoop to name calling. Shame on you.

BUT this is 5th grade youth ball. The kids have not hit their growth spurt or puberty yet (except maybe the really holdbacks). Stop worrying about college and let them learn and enjoy or eventually love the sport.

Ask a varsity player. Once Schoolball starts it all changes. New kids suddenly join. Lacrosse becomes faster and there is much more contact. No more Daddy coaches or watching on the sidelines in practice. They practice or play 6 days a week. 7am practices in the rain on the weekends. The sport isn't as fun and kids move on.

Why not just let them enjoy the sport now. For now just forget how big they are or will be and where they are going to college. They are 10.


This poster speaks the truth! Have to have btdt to appreciate the "fun" that we should see in youth sports.

kind of exactly what I posted last week. This thread is becoming a forum for insults and beat downs for those with kids not playing on "the best of the best" IN 5TH GRADE. Pannell-MLL Offensive Player of the Year-how big? Big enough when you have mad skills. Kids grow at different times and develop at different times-physically, mentally, emotionally. PERIOD. Rest is all BS. If your kid is on TAZ then good for him and I guess good for YOU. That should at least assure him of a scholarship and financial success. ROTFLMAO

Given blatant was still looking for another 2024 team I would expect that either both are playing up or neither

No Pack this weekend unless they get added to 2024 A. There is a filler spot in there right now.

Just discovered this website. This is youth lacrosse! Half of these kids aren't even going to be playing lacrosse in 5 years, and there's a good chance you parents that comment on here will be the reason. Stop living your unsuccessful athletic careers/boring marriages and home lives through your children. These kids go out there and play to have fun and people like you ruin it. You people need a serious sit down on a leather couch in a heavily bookcased office of a professional. Or maybe just a long hard look in the mirror. Jesus Christ.

Well said. Sad thing is that they will ignore you and continue with their nonsense. To think that they are parents is frightening. If their kid read what they wrote he would say, "damn, my dad's an assh.ole!!"

Now that's a great idea. No team nonsense-coaching-"my kids was treated unfairly". Hit the ball-add em up-PERIOD. Not a lot of injuries and kids will learn honesty, integrity, and how to be responsible for their own actions/score. Hit it, add em up and see how you did. There are many public facilities today for practice and play that are affordable. It's not just a "rich man's sport. One thing statistically-FACT: kids that play golf get in a lot less trouble in school and out, than kids that play team sports. Not going to expound on why, it is what it is. BTW-have a daughter? Get her to break 80 and see how many scholarships are available for Girls golf.

Taz should have gone to the 2023 bracket once the WP pulled out. Hate to say it but they must be looking for tee shirts these fall. The 90% of the team is the same so there is no reason to stay in the 2024 bracket in the fall w/o WP those kids need to be challenged.

Ferry and and car ride and he is there in about an hour. Same as living On Long Island . 9Done has at least one kid from NJ on the team. How many kids on Long Island play for the Dukes Nationals team? They practice in another state. Hockey kids have been doing it for years. The Ferraro family bought a house in Iowa so the kids could play Hockey with better kids. They both made the NHL

Yeah but NHL you make several million dollars. MLL you make 15 grand a year if your lucky. Maybe making a few hundred a week giving private lessons. If my son had a good shot to make several million dollars and have a dream life, I'd also allow him to play out of state.

You use the word impressive. I use pathetic and sad. I don't care how good he is, at 10 years old? My son loves lacrosse and is an excellent player but people need to get their priorities straight. Taz is good but not THAT good.

Isn't a non releaseable 2 minute penalty pretty harsh for an offense that was "no big deal"?
The next step after that is ejection..
I guess it is the dads fault,they should'nt really care when the kids are down on the field from an intentional act from an angry little boy who doesn't stand a chance in the sport other than his father running the team

And this is why US Lacrosse should make the change to go by birthdate rather than graduating year. Less injuries, even playing field and less cheaters. Whether your kid is mentally or emotionally behind they should play at their age.

The ref called a Two minute full time serve penalty on the coaches son, who was losing 10-0.This is a cause and effect situation. If the player doesn't take a baseball swing at the kid. We don't have any fireworks, but it happen. All parties were wrong. The ref handle the situation, the player should learn from it. Parents should stay out of it.

The Ref called a 2 minute unreleasable penalty on the play. It was dirty and late hit. The coach should use this as a teachable moment. He put the player back in the game after the penalty expire. Bad move. This will promote this behavior going forward.

Re: Boys 2024 5th Grade Fall 2016/ Summer 2017 - 10/24/16 02:52 PM

a 10 year old who makes a mistake whether intentional or not should be penalized ,as he was AND spoken to by his coaches to hopefully prevent something like that from happening again, as he was. The dad who gets emotional and makes a mistake in calling out the coach and saying " Hey #$%^& teach your kid how to play the game" while said coach was one of the first people to sprint across the field to see if the kid was ok (thankfully he was) should have have been a man and apologized to the coach by simply saying he lost his cool when he saw his kid get hurt on a play like that. Thats all,,,people need to start realizing that you are standing next to peoples families on the sidelines. Nobody wants to see their kid hurt on a bad play. If the kids make a mistake they need to be reprimanded ..if the parents do they need to own up to their mistakes also.

Stop with the "keeping their starters in" all game BS. All of the kids on that roster played plenty. The team is just very deep. Simply tip your cap to them and move on.

No dog in this argument but, Stop crying already, every kid on that team is a starter. My son wanted to see 5-10 min of the game as we walked to his next game. We saw the play in dispute the defenseman made a clear ball was out of his stick the middie was well on his way down field and the other team player took a full swing to the back of a defenseless player with his back to him totally by surprise. Intentional or not as a parent your crazy if you think you wouldn't react the same way. It would scare anyone of us at that moment. Just my thoughts.

Being Vocal about a very disturbing play on the field?
If I was an IGLOO parent I would be more than concerned about how the team conducted themselves on the field. There are bad plays and there are DANGEROUS plays...

That was a very DANGEROUS play and no one brings there kid down in the pouring rain for that type of behavior. SAD SAD SAD. Barone is a good guy and needs to make sure this doesn't happen again.

I did not have a player on either team but I did see the game. I believe that the player from Igloo lost his cool because they were losing. I do not believe for one moment that he, or any child would intentionally hurt someone. Does it need to be addressed? Yes, and I am sure a conversation took place. What concerns me more is that everyone is brushing over the fact that the parent on the sidelines was "mildly intoxicated"! I can't wait for the day alcohol is banned from these tournaments. It is out of control. I walk by some of these fancy tents that all the parents hang out under in between games with their solo cups and often wonder who's driving these kids home?

Classless and embarrassing Coach.

That's all on the coach and is disgusting. It's called "Sportsmanship" and "Self Control". Make it a teachable moment. As a coach developing young men it is completely irresponsible and reprehensible of the coach. He should be ashamed of himself. Garbage like this is becoming contagious on LI and needs to be identified and corrected.

No actually just the legacy golden geese team beat them by double digits in the Columbus Day tournament so you must be a parent from that team. So not surprised by your obnoxious comment. Too bad for the geese its parents like you that ruin sports for everyone else. And the team only played one 2026 team on Saturday. They played in the b bracket which is the right ability level for them so why do you have to put them down? They played mamas boyz in the championship who happened to be a very competitive team. Their goalie was awesome.

They got hammered by express and geese in that tournament, lost to ###### b team and beat a rebuilding express b team. The bracket this past weekend was very weak. And they barely beat a town travel team and a weak Mamas Boyz team. Keep drinking the cool aid dude its only costing you %1600

Unless a team is hosting a tournament how would anyone know what other teams plan on entering? Why would a brand new b level team enter an a bracket? To get crushed?

No nerve struck, keep collecting those T-Shirts. Why did you go in the Columbus Day Tournament if you knew you were gonna get crushed? Like I said keep drinking the cool aid.

Sorry this was in response to an earlier post about Team 24 2025 team



BASH the kids if you must [lacrosse] but they only played 1 2026 which had no business being there. They beat these Mama Boyz who brought 5th graders down for the finals and still lost. Those kids only practiced about 8 times together so they did well IMO. They are a very strong B team. Come spring the smack Igloo around.

Their 2025 team was in a weak bracket. We played them at a tournament earlier in the Fall and beat them by double digits, I think everyone did that tournament. That's with mandatory working the ball around twice before even going to the goal.


Only team to beat them by double digits was Geese. They had only practiced 4 times at that point. Not saying they can compete with the big 3 but isn't that how you get better????

Remember Geese Daddy, "WE" didn't win anything. You sat on the sideline with your red solo cup living your life through a bunch of 8 year olds. Sad my friend, real sad. Time to get a life


They boys were happy and that is all that matters.

They played in the b bracket which is the right ability level for them so why do you have to put them down? They played mamas boyz in the championship who happened to be a very competitive team. Their goalie was awesome.


Igloo lost got hammered to by Express so I guess they are on the same level d bag.

They got hammered by express and geese in that tournament, lost to ###### b team and beat a rebuilding express b team. The bracket this past weekend was very weak. And they barely beat a town travel team and a weak Mamas Boyz team. Keep drinking the cool aid dude its only costing you %1600

Not a bitter PAL parent douch. If you're happy spending that kind of money to play against 3rd graders and sub par teams you really are a moron. But hey who am I to tell you how to spend your money you loser.


They played 1 3rd grade team that had no business being in that bracket. I think they are better then Igloo right now. Maybe we should pay $3000 to be on 2nd team of one of the big 3 so we can puff our chests out. Go get your shine box boy...

Why you ask??? Because they needed another team last minute. Other so called a teams must have been hiding.

Yep, it's gotten that bad that the 2025 banter has jumped into the 2024 thread.

Who knows if the intentions of the first post about TwentyFour was to start (S***) or if it was just an observation but we all need to know that no matter what is posted on here, it will be ridiculed.

I get it, 91, Express, Igloo, Legacy all clearly "elite" travel teams, no question. Then there are your "B" teams or lower tier teams. I watched these "elite" teams and I was impressed. Eventually with hard work and some good coaching/mentoring, there will be several more A-teams.

Stay in that elite world, it fits for what you are trying to do, leave everyone else alone. Travel town teams need to back off start-ups as well. It's not fair to a kid that wants to grow as a player to be punished. All of these programs are good and they ALL meet or exceed what a parent is looking for so their child can become a better player. Some may be blinded by the big names, so be it, if they have the money, have at it.

So we bash B-brackets while bundled up under three layers of jackets and sweatshirts drinking coffee, while a child is out there busting their butt for the love of the game. Here's the challenge for the "elite" parents, it's your turn, put the gear on get out there and run up and down the field in rainy cold weather and prove to them that you belong in the "elite" division, oh wait, it has nothing to do with you, it's your kids that are playing, so why do you think it's OK for you to be their voice? Please stop with this "weak" team nonsense, ALL teams have their weaknesses from too many kids on a roster to undesirable coaches to ridiculous costs. It is what it is.

Forget Trump and Clinton for the fall of Western civilization, we need to focus on youth sports and it's not even the kids it's the parents. Again there are awesome teams out their but don't fault a 9 year old because of politics, because parents work and the travel team they have selected fits their needs but can give their child a little more than maybe a PAL team. PARENTS ruin sports, period. The only way your kid is talking like this is because they hear it from mom and dad.

STAY OUT OF IT. Let the coaches coach, let the kids play and if you're not happy look for another option. You add nothing to the team or the development of your child if all you do is BASH, BASH, BASH.

Chances are your child is going to be more than a professional lacrosse player and what will your response be, "NO WAY, we invested too much time and money into youth lacrosse for you to be a doctor, a fireman, a lawyer, etc."

Here is a suggestion (start bashing away) but I will provide anyway. Be a chauffer, be that ATM machine for when they need gear, be their fan, be their support, DON'T be their voice, they can handle it, trust me, but if they can't, that would be YOUR fault.

Back to the bracket issue. SO a new team goes to a tournament where they may not belong at the start, they get beat up, but I did not see one kid from that team with his head down crying, but I did see a lot of disappointed parents, WHY? ALL you did was drive them their so get over it. Hopefully it was a learning experience for the coaches who the parents pay to train their children. They make some adjustments, enter a tournament based on their ability as a new program (with NO CONTROL over who is in the bracket with them) beat some teams WIN, they wear their CHAMPIONSHIP shirts to school proud as can be and you MOCK them for it? Those boys earned those shirts, PERIOD. That is truly SAD and this is why parents have no place on the field.

When I start my travel program I guarantee the parents will not like it. The boys don't have to try out, the parents do!

PLEASE just stop.

Thank you. The level of insanity from these parents is insane. The kids forget their last game very quickly at this age, even after a tough loss. They generally don't care or know anything about other teams, other than they exist. Meanwhile you have the peanut gallery over here ranking 9 and 10 year old teams and their players. It's pathetic and frankly the fact that so many of you nut jobs are watching my son and his team this close is a little concerning.

Great post...The coach of the Longboards needs to take a long look..At the tournament last week you had kids coming from all different teams.
And in the Finals even more.And you still lost..Remember you have kids on the Longboards who are going to loose playing time so your TAZ kids can get another Tshirt. They lost 6 or 7 players last year because this was done repeatedly to them. Initially they did not mind because they won. But believe me those boys on the sidelines did not feel so good down the stretch.

Best post ever written on this site. i agree 100%.
my son does not play for one of the top clubs, but has played against them and it's true that the parents take the losses harder than the kids. these kids are out there hustling to the final whistle and improving. i used to get caught up and tried to coach from the side thinking i was helping. my kids hate it....ive become my sons amd daughters biggest cheerleader. i meet them back at the tent and nothing makes me happier than the smile on their face when i comoliment them on the tough ground ball they picked up or the pass they made. the kids notice the lunatics and will stop looking to play.

so to the original poster....i hope your kid is playing on my sons or daughters team.

Here's the challenge for the "elite" parents, it's your turn, put the gear on get out there and run up and down the field in rainy cold weather and prove to them that you belong in the "elite" division, oh wait, it has nothing to do with you, it's your kids that are playing, so why do you think it's OK for you to be their voice? Please stop with this "weak" team nonsense, ALL teams have their weaknesses from too many kids on a roster to undesirable coaches to ridiculous costs. It is what it is.

Forget Trump and Clinton for the fall of Western civilization, we need to focus on youth sports and it's not even the kids it's the parents. Again there are awesome teams out their but don't fault a 9 year old because of politics, because parents work and the travel team they have selected fits their needs but can give their child a little more than maybe a PAL team. PARENTS ruin sports, period. The only way your kid is talking like this is because they hear it from mom and dad.

STAY OUT OF IT. Let the coaches coach, let the kids play and if you're not happy look for another option. You add nothing to the team or the development of your child if all you do is BASH, BASH, BASH.

Chances are your child is going to be more than a professional lacrosse player and what will your response be, "NO WAY, we invested too much time and money into youth lacrosse for you to be a doctor, a fireman, a lawyer, etc."

Here is a suggestion (start bashing away) but I will provide anyway. Be a chauffer, be that ATM machine for when they need gear, be their fan, be their support, DON'T be their voice, they can handle it, trust me, but if they can't, that would be YOUR fault.

Back to the bracket issue. SO a new team goes to a tournament where they may not belong at the start, they get beat up, but I did not see one kid from that team with his head down crying, but I did see a lot of disappointed parents, WHY? ALL you did was drive them their so get over it. Hopefully it was a learning experience for the coaches who the parents pay to train their children. They make some adjustments, enter a tournament based on their ability as a new program (with NO CONTROL over who is in the bracket with them) beat some teams WIN, they wear their CHAMPIONSHIP shirts to school proud as can be and you MOCK them for it? Those boys earned those shirts, PERIOD. That is truly SAD and this is why parents have no place on the field.

When I start my travel program I guarantee the parents will not like it. The boys don't have to try out, the parents do!

PLEASE just stop.


Can't wait to see the masters degree rebuttals to this post but like everything else on this board, it's JUST AN OPINION, right?

#ALLHOPEISGONE


Best post ever written on this site. i agree 100%.
my son does not play for one of the top clubs, but has played against them and it's true that the parents take the losses harder than the kids. these kids are out there hustling to the final whistle and improving. i used to get caught up and tried to coach from the side thinking i was helping. my kids hate it....ive become my sons amd daughters biggest cheerleader. i meet them back at the tent and nothing makes me happier than the smile on their face when i comoliment them on the tough ground ball they picked up or the pass they made. the kids notice the lunatics and will stop looking to play.

so to the original poster....i hope your kid is playing on my sons or daughters team.



Keep in mind that the vast majority of the negative posts on here are from the same handful of trouble makers for the past few years. Most Lax parents from A, B, C or whatever level are sane people that just want their kids to be happy. Good post though!

Great post, everyone should *many won't* read this twice and take a good long look in the mirror and ask yourself is that me? If yes make the proper adjustments and move forward.

It is about time that someone pointed out (so eloquently) what many of us have been thinking. These kids work so darn hard, now just let them play their best and have fun. Stop pointing fingers at the "losers": They all worked their butts off in terrible weather last weekend....they all are winners for their efforts.

Haha, did you just refer to this as "real life?" Whose, yours or your kids? I created that post for social awareness of a growing problem called "parents." So this is real life, B brackets are for losers and the other gem was the trophy's for everyone comment. If you knew me, I am The LAST person to be a fan of participation awards. My son and some of his friends work very hard to get better and that is important, not just showing up, so that's that.
The B bracket issue, well let's just say these were created by parents so that we wouldn't have to share a sideline with the the parents that refer to 9 years olds as losers. YOU'RE WELCOME!

They should be 10 by now and if they aren't in the top bracket, they should give back the shirt. It can be a teaching moment for all you parents with soft kids.

And I did not offer any thanks.

The initial thread was in response to an obnoxious comment regarding a 2025 team that was made on the 2024 thread. So your 2024 child may be 10 by now unless born in November or December but most 2025's should be born in 2007 and therefore would be 9 or soon turning 9.

Really nice thing to say a kids on the B team..... They are losers... guess what...you are the loser! And I bet you think your kid is the best player in the A team... he will probably quit playing lacrosse by 8th grade, or better yet, he will be on the B team and the kids you referred to a losers on the B team will have taken your precious sons spot on the A team.. then it will be ok to play on the B team, right?
You are nothing but a fool...get a life and let the kids just play.

DIII Baseball? Really, that is what you cling to and brag about at your "great paying job" and tell your "great family and a ton of friends" just before you post on here? That's really the funniest thing I've heard in a while. I hear the minimum wage is going up, so stand by.

You should stay off this thread! Are you really that ignorant that you are belittling 10 yr old's that are developing, and a father that obviously is happy about that?? I was a div-1 wrestler in college, my job is pretty good where I don't have to pay too much attention to the min. wage. Most likely you or one of your family member's have worked for me the past. So be nice to my B team kid. I KNOW he is a good player and is having fun doing it.Also, you and your A team kid might end up working for him someday.

HAHA good one, but we all know wrestling was just your excuse to roll around on the mat with another man. But hey its expectable these days so no need to lie anymore.


does wrestling have a B team? Do they get to roll around too?

It's A Team or no Team, so you know where to find me. No need to insult the kids, their daddies already know their limitations unless they are delusional like you. Unfortunately for the everyone gets a trophy club, some kids just have it. Some just don't. I am thankful that mine do.
In the meantime you should consider diverting the $ to SAT Prep.

The fact that anyone thinks he is a WP or Taz parent that is writing these ridiculous things makes you an easy target for this fool. Ignore him and he will go away. Stop feeding into his BS and we all know his kid is a nobody. I know both the WP and Taz parents and when they read or hear that it is them writing it, it is laughable on the sidelines. And if you're reading this, man up and tell us what A team your kid plays on... because its neither of those 2.

I wrestled D-1, I played DIII Baseball, Oh Boy, the list of achievements from you B team daddies is just astounding. I'm so impressed with your athletic prowess.

There are a decent amount of age based tournaments, which is great. Just not one on Long Island. Maybe the Us Lacrosse will get it together & have an aged based tournament on the Island soon.

It's impossible because all of the clubs are grade based. Get use to it. It's never going to change.

No travel clubs on Long Island are age based. Tough to find a team that doesnt have some holdbacks. Would be great but as this board has made it clear..... ITS NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN.....

The question is are all of the clubs grade based because all of the tournaments are grade-based? USL has the ability to dictate this if they wanted to, and one to do so would be to alter their insurance - if they decided to make insurance coverage contingent upon tournaments being age-based, the clubs would quickly fall in line, and things would change. This a chicken-egg/cart-horse debate.

Great for your son and better for your story telling-now who really cares about your D-1 wrestling unless you are coaching their kid. Your kid must be under so much pressure. Poor little guy. Hope he lives up to your high standards. Will you beat him if he wants to quit the game by 8th grade

If you didn't go to a Big 10 or Big 12 school, you were a B team wrestler. Stop bragging about something that no one cares about even if it is true. And I'm not sure why you wanted a lax players stick in your mouth, but whatever floats your boat.

The only youth sport that has lost a higher percentage of participants in the last few years across the country more than football is wrestling. You obviously feel like you are a tough guy, but rolling around a mat with some dudes junk in your face does not make that so. Your sport will be close to extinct soon.

Wow... so glad I don't live in Long Island. I googled some teams, as we have a tournament against them, and wanted to see how good they are and it directed me to this site.

I live in Western NY and yeah there is politics, but nothing like this. This past year was my son's first travel lacrosse experience and the Long Island Parents were the worst. We went to the Saratoga Shootout and beat the LI Experss in the championship game.

One of the LI Express kids got hurt and his mom tried to come on the field and ask if he was ok and the Coach said "Shut-up" get off the field... You guys are hard-core competitive.

The worst I have seen up here is the Fellowship of Christian Athletes Northeast are absolute frauds. They don't really care about Christian values and only care about the best players. I felt really bad for my son's friend who got looked over the following year. FCA claims they will take a "good" kid over a "good" lacrosse player any day, but they are lies. I thought that was bad, but all these posts on here make me realize I am way too invested in this to be researching other teams we are playing in Maryland this weekend.

I love watching my son play lacrosse. I love going out and throwing with him. I love being an assistant coach in his house team. I don't care at all if he plays lacrosse in college and would prefer he didn't. My son goes to Joe Walters boot camps and has fun. I researched afterward, then unless you are top of the game and training kids for money, or supplementing your income with you tube training you really are broke.

There is just isn't a huge payoff in lacrosse. Sense that is the case... lay off and have fun. Life goes by so quick, your son is going to resent you for not demonstrating behavior that is showing you care about others in the community. Anyway... shocked by these threads and so grateful there isn't one of these threads for us.

Get off your high horse. And stop making up things that make your story better, no Express coach said that to a parent. We might be nuts, but that did not happen.

And tell your son to have fun getting his teeth kicked in by the MD kids.

There is just isn't a huge payoff in lacrosse. Sense that is the case... lay off and have fun. Life goes by so quick, your son is going to resent you for not demonstrating behavior that is showing you care about others in the community. Anyway... shocked by these threads and so grateful there isn't one of these threads for us.



Get off your high horse. And stop making up things that make your story better, no Express coach said that to a parent. We might be nuts, but that did not happen.

And tell your son to have fun getting his teeth kicked in by the MD kids.

I was at that game and it did happen but you aren't telling the story properly. They played each other the day before (and Express won by a good amount of goals)and FCA was playing very dirty, started a fight, a FCA player gave an Express the finger. A 10 year old...Then for the championship game FCA brought players that were playing for the 2023 team. That coach and that parent have been friends for years. He knew if he didnt't tell her to be quiet with the way the game was going and FCA's parents cheering when a penalty was not called she would say something she would regret. Was it wrong, yes, but at least it didn't escalate. That coach knows his kids and parents. So if yelling Shut up controlled the situation, then so be it. I was shocked to hear FCA was. Christian organization.

100% incorrect!
I was there and saw the kid give the finger and was disgusted and I also watched a group of kids go from the 2024 championship game and then play for the 2023 team afterwards. Maybe they were playing up for 2023 but they were the primary players for the 2024 championship game and they were not there the day before. The day before they had maybe 2 kids on the bench. The championship game they had a full bench. I read posts on here and don't always believe it but this I witnessed. Not a team I would ever want my son playing on. I was very happy with who my son played for after watching that.

Guess I will respond. Well let me apologies on the behalf of the team then. We did not know he gave a player the finger and believe that must of happened by your response. Had the coach known he would of disciplined the child.

That said there was no 2023 kids who played up and the pinnies are reversible. Where there could be some confusion is that Adirondack FCA was playing in their first tournament and didn't have enough kids to play ( I think).

Sorry about a kid giving the finger.... think I know which kid would do that and will try and find out.

Sorry for my rant post yesterday also. I don't know why I posted because I knew it wouldn't do any good. I just want to let you guys know that in the Albany Tournament, Saratoga Shoot-out, the NXT Cup, etc... The Long Island teams typically had the loudest and most intense parents. You guys are way more intense than us. However, after you beat the FCA team on day one, the kids were ready for a battle and the parents pumped them up for it, so could see how intense it felt.

FCA scored like 3 goals the entire nxt cump tournament and got creamed by Long Island teams for sure. I guess we would be considered a B team on your level. That's ok with me. I might be more upset if there was anything other than a partial scholarship at the end of this rainbow.

SAT's matter way more to get into college than all of this is what I have learned with research.

Now you might respond of course that is your response if you son is on a B team or whatever, but honestly that isn't why. As a parent, I have no desire to see him win the lacrosse championship because there is no money for him to provide for his family one day. Now because that is his desire I will support him every step of the way, get him the best training, etc... But lacrosse will always be secondary to grades and will always be secondary to being a good person.

I will try and not respond again, and oh sorry for the bad English language above, was responding from my phone.

This is fun and a great way to not work! Have a great day everyone and just know that the culture of Long Island lacrosse isn't that way everywhere else. Think about how quickly your life has gone so far and what do you really want your kids to learn and remember about you as a parent and a mentor.

Sincerely,

Upstate NY - B Teams, and proud of it.

This is like arguing about which 2 weak kids on the playground can win in a fight. Does it really matter who won? Or what happened? Go have a catch with your sons and stop wasting time.

I am told that Madlax 2024 is even better than last year. Apparently they have swept ever game this Fall. Most of them by 10+ goals. They beat 9d1MD pretty solidly this weekend. Don't know about Bethesda. But I expect they will be strong again this year too.

There is no need to be snarky. Madlax beat MD 9-1 not WP this weekend. Also by your comments Igloo beat WP last couple times they played and Madlax has never lost to Igloo. So both WP and Igloo better hope they got better as well. These are 10/11 year olds. Let's just support all the teams and let them have fun! Win or Lose!

I agree. This forum is a great venue to discuss youth lax and how's its growing. It's an awesome forum to talk about how our different programs are doing. But when we start taking jabs at teams/coaches/parents its gone too far. These kids are kids and I doubt very many of them even know that this website exists or that grown men/women are commenting on how they play the game; which is quite disturbing when you think about it. And the "giant 13 year old" mentioned by the previous poster is actually a giant 11 year old playing among his peers.

So? What is your point? Good for the town teams to have that much talent and commitment.

My point was that you have Taz and pack. And then you have this group and it's ok to be in this group. The games are always close and competitive which is good for the boys.

Close, but wrong. Longboards and high voltage are not town teams and I don't ever remember anyone making that claim. They have kids from all over. ESM is a true town team. They just happen to have a bunch talented kids that play of some of the top travel teams. No different than BBP and Commack.

Express OReilly beat ESM 2weeks ago. RVC beat ESM last year...don't categorize a town team with a club teams....Also Long boards is a pick up team for TAZ kidz. And high voltage is the WP pick up team..o need for them to be in the discussion.

Close, but wrong. Longboards and high voltage are not town teams and I don't ever remember anyone making that claim. They have kids from all over. ESM is a true town team. They just happen to have a bunch talented kids that play of some of the top travel teams. No different than BBP and Commack.

Sure there is a difference. BBp beats ESM all the time as they do everyone else including Comack and the rest of them RVC and high voltage.

There you are Mr average. We missed you. Now that the rvc boys moved to schwajle you're going to focus your same 2 year old line on them?

Maybe time to get over it and move on[/quote]

If I'm not mistaken, only 1-2 kids from rvc moved up to Schwalje. Wasn't that from the 9-1 Avengers in 3rd grade???[/quote]
Wow so original with your Mr. Average quote. get a life man. we get it, the WP are far superior then everyone else. Good luck playing no one [lacrosse]

I agree. Outlaws select parent here. Trying to stomach some of these nonsense posts. Obviously Taz and WP are untouchable but the Outlaw/Igloo match-up is great lacrosse to wacth. Evenly matched teams. Players and Parents all polite on both sides. No [lacrosse] on the sidelines during the game. It was a pleasure to watch. Was hoping to see them this Friday. BTW I will take average to watch my 10 year old enjoy other sports.

These days most of these Town teams are travel teams in the world of Tournament play. Our town is trying to do it but the talent and commitment just isn't there to compete on that level. When "most" people hear Town team they think PAL and they just should not. Yes there are some PAL teams that play as Travel team but they are few. Most of those kids have commitments to other travel teams. I don't condone comparing teams at any level at this age. It's just silly. But you can't really separate a town team and a travel team for the most part.

You're missing the point Einstein. The point was that ESM, BBP and Commack are town teams, not which one is better than the other. Understand now dope?

100% incorrect!
I was there and saw the kid give the finger and was disgusted and I also watched a group of kids go from the 2024 championship game and then play for the 2023 team afterwards. Maybe they were playing up for 2023 but they were the primary players for the 2024 championship game and they were not there the day before. The day before they had maybe 2 kids on the bench. The championship game they had a full bench. I read posts on here and don't always believe it but this I witnessed. Not a team I would ever want my son playing on. I was very happy with who my son played for after watching that.


Guess I will respond. Well let me apologies on the behalf of the team then. We did not know he gave a player the finger and believe that must of happened by your response. Had the coach known he would of disciplined the child.

That said there was no 2023 kids who played up and the pinnies are reversible. Where there could be some confusion is that Adirondack FCA was playing in their first tournament and didn't have enough kids to play ( I think).

Sorry about a kid giving the finger.... think I know which kid would do that and will try and find out.

Sorry for my rant post yesterday also. I don't know why I posted because I knew it wouldn't do any good. I just want to let you guys know that in the Albany Tournament, Saratoga Shoot-out, the NXT Cup, etc... The Long Island teams typically had the loudest and most intense parents. You guys are way more intense than us. However, after you beat the FCA team on day one, the kids were ready for a battle and the parents pumped them up for it, so could see how intense it felt.

FCA scored like 3 goals the entire nxt cump tournament and got creamed by Long Island teams for sure. I guess we would be considered a B team on your level. That's ok with me. I might be more upset if there was anything other than a partial scholarship at the end of this rainbow.

SAT's matter way more to get into college than all of this is what I have learned with research.

Now you might respond of course that is your response if you son is on a B team or whatever, but honestly that isn't why. As a parent, I have no desire to see him win the lacrosse championship because there is no money for him to provide for his family one day. Now because that is his desire I will support him every step of the way, get him the best training, etc... But lacrosse will always be secondary to grades and will always be secondary to being a good person.

I will try and not respond again, and oh sorry for the bad English language above, was responding from my phone.

This is fun and a great way to not work! Have a great day everyone and just know that the culture of Long Island lacrosse isn't that way everywhere else. Think about how quickly your life has gone so far and what do you really want your kids to learn and remember about you as a parent and a mentor.

Sincerely,

Upstate NY - B Teams, and proud of it.




Great Post sir and so true on many levels. I would have to agree that the Long guy land folks are a little nutso but for the most part are very nice, at least the ones I have met.
Grades 1st, L-cross 2nd! God bless

I love the assumption that crazy lacrosse parents couldn't not possibly be interested in their child's academic success.

This is a completely false assumption. If you think we're crazy about lacrosse, you should see us when it comes to school work. In our house, if you don't get good grades, you don't eat.

Absolutely the way it should be! If it's not and your child is having problems getting good grades, take the lax money and spend it on a tutor!

BBP and Commack are as good as they come.. and I'm not a resident of either of those towns. BBP has a bunch of solid WP boys and Commack has 2 WP boys that are as strong as it gets at there positions. They also have a middy that plays for the Outlaws I think who is real good also. We are 0-6 against these teams over the last 3 years and as much as it kills me to say that about them its the truth. We have a solid team as do other towns but not like those two.

Its not a town team or a 3V team. 3 or 4 different towns on that team with special guests every tournament. I have seen Smithtown kids, Mt Sinai kids, and Commack kids on that field. Stop your BS.

Sachem East lost to the Empire A team (Green), beat the new Empire B team (White). Nothing wrong with being proud of your kid's team's performance but if you're going to brag at least brag with the right set of facts

And the bracket was won by a Greenwich team that had 0 kids on the bench. That's right 0 kids on the bench. How didn't they run them into the ground? And the answer is: These teams were terrible and they don't even come up to average on a good day.

Knowing Greenwich they were 2023 kids playing. It there but they did that at the pumpkin shootout. The difference is better travel teams beat them.

Are you new to travel lacrosse? This trend only gets worse up through 9th grade when you get to single and double holdbacks, so that having older boys play down at 2024 and below is not shocking.

Very rarely is a team at full strength in the fall or ready for "prime time rankings" as you love to do.

It's FALL BALL! Who cares?! At least wait until spring before you start rating.


You need to throw MadLax and Brotherly Love in there.


Pretty sure the op only talking about Long Island. Beyond Taz and WP nobody else on the island close to madlax, blc, diamond backs, brotherly love, bbl, 88+3 Maryland,


That is a prety good list. maybe showing my ignorance here. who is bbl? i think you mean hawks, not diamond backs. diamond backs not as strong at this age group. they went 0-6 in howard county spring league.

Honestly someone on LI need to set up a travel lacrosse league in the spring that plays Friday nights or Sat. This will help the LI team keep up with the above teams. DTL/Blatant/igloo/ this would help all LI teams have an A/B/C brackets so all can play including town teams if they want.

Express played BBL there 1st game ever and after after only 2 practices. and it was close! Will be a different outcome in the Spring. FYI I know it is the norm to holdback in lax, But the BBL team were older, they were all at least 12 yrs old. and were huge. Just saying.

What do you think, that BBL had more than 2-3 practices? And don't complain about holdbacks with you 12 year old football kids.

Under an aged based system, you would be permitted to have your son play up if you wished him to play against older boys who you believe will be his opponents on JV and Varsity. It would be your choice. But if you were like the majority of parents, and thought it best that he play against kids his same age only, than you would be able to ensure that that happens. As it is now, parents have no choice. Their kids are forced to play against older kids whether they like it or not. And what makes it worse is there is a randomness to it. You never know the amount of older kids the opposition has until you get to the field.

And as someone else has said, age difference is diminished greatly once puberty starts to kick in. In most sports, including lacrosse, a freshman can play well against seniors. But a 9 year old against 12 year olds - good luck. Once the kids are 15 or so, age differences become far less determinative. But 14 or below, more or less, older kids have a huge innate advantage. Such advantage should not be forced on a kid

Your gripe has been heard all too often. Travel lax in the Northeast is just a free for all. If you don't like it Change it. Or don't play.

It is what it is. I think it would be great to have the older boys have to ADMIT to playing down. If they choose to beat up on little boys so be it.. but lets let the bullys be known.

If that ever happened on my sons team, I would pull him from that club in a second.
That's the only way you stop this from going on. Coach won't be able to pull that low lift BS if he can't field a roster to start out with.

I mean they only beat Longboards and Scrambles Eggs by a goal each at Havoc.

Facts are facts = 7-4 and 7-6
Tie 6-6 vs an average Tri State
And a one goal game vs the Eggs
Taz 10 Express 1 on Columbus Day

If Express was so good they would be playing in MD this weekend, not some lame tourney in Farmingdale

My kid didn't make the cut on Taz so I might be a tad bias, but Ive watched them play each other twice and the WP seems a much more powerful team skill wise than the Taz. Somehow the Taz got by with 1 goal every game. If the WP made some adjustments this year it could be very different. If not it should be a toss up once again.

maybe coaching is the big difference. As all ages coaching is the most important thing when picking a team.

Agree about the coach but they do enter Tourneys as a Travel Team

To all of you creepy loser mom, dads, pee on assistant coaches etc who come on here and bash children, other parents, teams and coaches you should think real hard before hitting that button on what kind of person you really are and what consequences there could be as a result of your words. Proceed with caution because karma outside your cute little lax bubble can be tough. You might think itís no big deal when your hammering away at that keyboard but boy oh boy you should. Itís a small world and you just never know. It's crazy that some of these weirdos are around kids as much as they are. The scumbags know who they are.

Lets get into it. First I am a parent of another team that played both these teams today. Second I don't care about either team or for LI lacrosse for that matter. Third if you are talking about this game then you better know what your talking about. After reading for months on here the madness I had to see it for myself. Todays game ended with Legacy winning on some ridiculous bad bounce goal that gave them a 1 goal win. Wasn't the winning goal but turned out to be the difference. That's not the point, the difference between the 2 teams is easy to spot. The Taz runs more of an open set offense. This allows there better players to facilitate plays on their own. Dodging, cutting creating opportunities. One on Ones so an individual player can create something. The WP runs play after play. Every time they had the ball a play was called. The Taz started picking up on this and adjusted. The 91 team did not give there better players a chance to create something. Every time they could have went one on one and cleared out for something to happen they called a play. Sometimes coaches at this age need to let the boys play lacrosse and drop the play calling for a while. These boys will lose the love for the game if they are never allowed to shine on their own. On the Taz end their boys play off getting hurt a lot, I'm not saying you don't get hurt I get it I have 4 boys that played football and lacrosse but these boys went down a lot only to pop back up after killing some time. I saw it 2 or 3 times during our game. One boy went down and thankfully he got back up I never want to see any young athlete get hurt. This is my opinion and no one has to agree and I will not be given my 2 cents ever again, but after all the talking on here both teams are highly talented and very impressive. Coaches are as good as I ever been around. My background played in mid 80s so I know a little about the sport and currently have a son gunning for a spot on a local college team here. Not a pro at the sport but know enough to understand what I see. Good luck to all and it was a great day even if we didn't walk away fully successful.

Great post. I've watched them play other teams in Long Island but haven't seen these 2 play since last summer. You are right on with Taz and how they play! Same thing I've seen. How were the games against MD teams? Was it at least good competitive games? Yes Taz won by one goal but that's great competition. Will only make each team keep working harder. You can call that a loss for WP but as a parent by the sounds of it with a few adjustments things can change. Thanks for the recap.

Keenan plays the best kids more often, Aiello plays his favorite kids most.
Otherwise the 2 teams are very evenly matched.
In my opinion WP would be better with a different coach, who son isn't a player on the team

I understand the thoughts against "dad" coaches, if the dad is not qualified for the job. If the father has the needed experience and qualifications, then fine.

Exactly. That is how it should be but instead of CONGRATULATING both 10 YEAR OLD LONG ISLAND TEAMS who most of the boys either go to school together or are friends with each other as well as the parents, you will have fake propaganda like posts by lunatics who have so much hate its alarming. disgusting. Is this all that you have in your life? Go hug your kid and move on.

Kavenaugh 5'7", Sankey 5'5", Baptiste 5'9", Wolfe 5'9", Plenty more. The all the rosters have a bunch of kids 5'9" or under, some are major contributors. They also have kids over 6'2" that don't do crap. Pannell is 5'10"

Sport is changing. Just look at last year's Tewaaraton finalists. Still had Cannizzaro (5-9, 175), but the other four were Jones (6-5, 240), Landis (6-2, 195), Molloy (6-0, 220), and Reeves (6-2, 205).

Todays game ended with Legacy winning on some ridiculous bad bounce goal that gave them a 1 goal win. Wasn't the winning goal but turned out to be the difference. That's not the point, the difference between the 2 teams is easy to spot. The Taz runs more of an open set offense. This allows there better players to facilitate plays on their own. Dodging, cutting creating opportunities. One on Ones so an individual player can create something. The WP runs play after play. Every time they had the ball a play was called. The Taz started picking up on this and adjusted. The 91 team did not give there better players a chance to create something. Every time they could have went one on one and cleared out for something to happen they called a play. Sometimes coaches at this age need to let the boys play lacrosse and drop the play calling for a while. These boys will lose the love for the game if they are never allowed to shine on their own. On the Taz end their boys play off getting hurt a lot, I'm not saying you don't get hurt I get it I have 4 boys that played football and lacrosse but these boys went down a lot only to pop back up after killing some time. I saw it 2 or 3 times during our game. One boy went down and thankfully he got back up I never want to see any young athlete get hurt. This is my opinion and no one has to agree and I will not be given my 2 cents ever again, but after all the talking on here both teams are highly talented and very impressive. Coaches are as good as I ever been around. My background played in mid 80s so I know a little about the sport and currently have a son gunning for a spot on a local college team here. Not a pro at the sport but know enough to understand what I see. Good luck to all and it was a great day even if we didn't walk away fully successful.


This is spot on. When the WP played open set they were very hard to beat


This is spot on, if the guy new what he was talking about. Taz runs a 1-3-2 motion. Never runs an open set. Go back to Lacrosse School. You need extra help!!


I think what he meant was not every possession for Legacy was a set play.

Very true, kids are bigger and stronger, but also much faster. 6'1 , 220 pounds is great, but if that kid (high school/college) dosent have speed, it is real hard to compete at a high level.

Re: Boys 2024 5th Grade Fall 2016/ Summer 2017 - 11/22/16 11:45 AM

The Average height and weight of the top 5 MLL scoring leaders all season was 5 '10 and 200'pounds. Only Tom Schreiber was over 6 ft. Rice, Pannell, Holmann and Wolfe were the others.

Taz and WP have great coaching. Taz kids have the edge because of they have their own training center and those kids are working.

Dukes can get kids from all over east coast and they are not as good as Taz nor is the coaching anywhere near what Keenan is. Will be more people traveling to play for him in the future

You can work on speed and that will help, no doubt about it. It won't make a slow kid fast, a little less slow yes. The best players are the quickest and fastest players. Stick skills can be practiced, but at the end of the day a fast kid with a great stick will always beat out a big slower kid with a great stick. I took my son to high school, college and MLL games last year. I'm just shocked how fast these kids were.

And let me guess you are 5ft 8in and your son is tiny and fast? Fast is definitely key but I don't care how fast you are it is definitely harder to get past the big boys who are still fast but maybe not speedy. If you are small and not strong you can't get past them. You need both. And YES you can work on speed!!!!

Are back to the size debate here again? Why is it that this age group is so hung up on size or the lack thereof? Physics don't lie but I swear some mommies on here will try to convince you that smaller somehow better. Just admit that bigger is always better in a contact sport and move on.

Every Express kid in the northeast will show up today. To bad Channy couldn't find some other teams for his squads to play. Sad excuse for a tourney when the host makes up 60% of the teams playing. Express vs Express everywhere today.

I'm an Outlaw parent? I've watched lacroose all fall. Each of these clubs have a handful of special players and then some good players. Express had 2 good middies and the best face off kid at 2024. Wolfpack has incredible depth, solid goalie and a few special middies and attack. Not really sure what special players Taz has? Maybe it's just the coaching and a group of players that practice enough to win and be successful. Would any Taz kids stand out in another program?

True, I hear gatorade is looking to sign long island youth players to its new ad campaign. So therefore it is worth it for 10 year old kids to travel out of state ,not play sports with their friends , and to have a crazy schedule and to do homework in the car, sitting in tri state area traffic, or taking ferries. Because maybe just maybe that kid can be on the next gatorade commercial. Definately worth it.

Who needs facts this is America and facts have taken a backseat to because we say so. Needless to say I have seen this kid do some amazing things on the field bringing in to question my eyesight which was recently checked which has brought me to the conclusion I am watching someone special someone I one day will say to a group of guys in a crowded bar I saw that guy play when he was only 10 maybe 13 and I knew he was something special then only to be told if you say so have another beer words taking a backseat to my lying eyes. Fact is it's not the first time exceptional ablility seen in a kid has been questioned and won't be the last time... I'm just glad I might have the opportunity to say "I remember when " happy holidays

Just to set the record straight the kid is NOT a hold back. He is not 13. Lol. Where do you even get this from? Bottom line is that he is a GREAT player. He plays on Legacy because his uncle is friend with the coach and it was a family decision to be taught by one of the best youth coaches in travel lacrosse. It was his uncle from Suffolk County that helped his nephew find a coach to train a KID who's skill level warrented an Elite coach.

Nothing wrong with that but all I see are people trying to trash a guy that is committed to playing the game the right way and having his kid learn from a great coach. Nothing mentioned that he is respectful kid that does great in school, in addition to being a good all around KID. But all we see is guys saying he has no place here. OH YES HE DOES.

You all should ashamed of yourselves even trying to talk about the kid or the parents. Seriously. Imagine that was your kid. How would you feel? A little food for thought.

Thumbing the ball? The kid is just better than everyone at his age. Some idiot ref was listening to a coach because his kids were getting so outplayed he said he was cheating.

That's why he is so good. He is 10 yr old professional who has mastered thumbing the ball everytime he scores. LOL. You sound ridiculous. Kid scores 4-5 goals a game not to mention he is usually equal in assists but he thumbs the ball on those too!

But the ref called him! Seriously, this needs to stop. He is the best player at his position. Give up haters.

He is no doubt Taz's best player but he was cheating all game. Wouldn't think someone that good would need to do that.

Hysterical. Karma at work. I can't tell you how many times I have heard Taz parents accusing other teams of having older kids. Now you know how it feels. I couldn't agree more that parents should be ashamed of pointing fingers at someone else's kid. It is usually jealousy or a sore loser.

Tell you what I would love to have him on our team as one of our goalies. He played us this past tournament, and last travel season a few times when we played wp and was lights out. In my opinion he was the better of both goalies. Not saying the other goalie wasn't good.
So backup? I dont think so. Very solid.

First, clearly this is someone desperately needing to stir the pot. The WP parents know that they lost to TAZ 5 times and wouldn't make statements like "we will beat them the next time." Stop starting crap and let it go.

Second, the kid from Connecticut IS a holdback. Denying that is pathetic. However, he IS in 5th grade, making him a 2024 graduate. NOT CHEATING! Get over it and let it go.

Third, the goalie leaving WP because he "wanted to be a winner" is such a poor reflection of his parents. I hope this is not the reason behind his leaving that team. Because that is just sad.

Last, both teams are built on amazing young boys who love to play lacrosse. I truly believe it is parents of neither team that make the comments on this forum about the teams. Please people, let the boys continue to love lactose and LET IT GO!!!!!

I highly doubt that the goalies parents would have him leave a dominant WP team that had some 1 goal losses because he wanted to be a winner maybe there is another reason? It is wrong that people think its ok to post and point out certain kids on this anonymous website. Don't you feel like a piece of [lacrosse], don't you people have jobs? I wonder what your bosses would think or better yet tax payers if it applies to you.

tight at half.....LOL'
It was actually tied at the start too


It was a really close game at half..6-5? is not close?and ref. missed a goal by express lefty attack-man. fun game to watch..back and forth..Remember when Taz could not beat Pack??? Spring should be fun.

don't forget the part where Taz then doubled their score and then some as well as the dozen or so shots that missed the cage.
Express maybe had 3 shots on goal the second half..

So many things wrong with lacrosse brought up one statement:
- 5th grade kids should not be 12 years old. If yours is, don't worry about his lacrosse play. Get the boy at tutor!
- Parents citing old scores of games as 'not even close'. Stop keeping track. Chances are your son hasn't brought the game up since he got over it 4 minutes after the game ended. Did your boy have fun? That is all that matters! Nobody is being recruited in 5th grade....don't make it more stressful on your son
- The backhanded slap of how the kid still believes in the Easter Bunny. If not an imaginary holiday character, the poster will generally inquire if the child can tie their shoes yet.
- And the classy conclusion.....calling an anonymous poster 'loser'. You really got him good!!!

You actually couldn't be more wrong! Express had a good 6 shots IN A ROW in the 2nd 1/2 that either hit the pipe or the Taz goalie had an awesome save. Was Taz better, yes. But Express has a shot if they keep working together and iron out their kinks for the spring. Express is more than 1/2 new kids. Most of Taz has been playing together. Should be some good competition come the spring.

Maybe you missed the point, they are kids, what is the big deal, they aren't playing for anything at this point. Look at all these posts, which 5th grade team beat who. But hey, keep up the good work................loser!

Wasn't the score 12 5 TAZ? Didn't TAZ start there 3 rd line? Didn't express play there 1st line 75 percent of game? Express is a good team but please stop

Agreed. Whether this is legit or someone trying to paint WP in a bad light, it's disturbing. What kind of low life publicly threatens a kid?

I bet most of the posts on here aren't even from Taz, Pack or Express A parents. Definitely pot stirrers.

Now you are mixing B team with A team. This was talking about an attackman on A. O'Reilly is B. You just can't stay away from bashing O'Reilly. It is actually very funny.

The Express posts seem pretty true. Don't bunch them in with the better teams just yet.
As of now they are still battling for a top three spot with the other "A" teams.
AKA, "the best of the rest"

The outlaws have a 2024 team? From what I understand they are two B teams because the coach of gold/black keeps all his town kids on the B team even if they are A players. Makes no sense.

If the kids want to stay with their town coach then not sure what the big deal is. They're 10!

I agree why can't they stay on that team and build a successful team as they grow. Not every kid should or want to play on a A team and get 2 minutes of playing time per game or just maybe they want to play with their friends.
