How'd YJ 2024 rosters go? How many teams? New players?

Anyone from last season's YJ 2024 "A" team have any comments about the coach, Williams? Good, bad, indifferent? Thanks in advance.

Well I know one family on that club and one family at YJ. The YJ dad is hard core and so is his daughter and they're happy. The other family at the south shore club is happy as well but they, as in the family, are a bit more laid back. Not lacking in talent just easier going people. I've only met the YJ HC in passing but the YJ assistant is awesome and I know her pretty well - dont know if she's back this year or not. Either one sounds like a safe bet and I don't think you can go wrong either way.

definitely not now or never. there are teams out there that don't even form until 6th grade.
many clubs have multiple teams per age group, so your daughter will always be able to find a spot. just be warned, that she may have a sizeable skill gap vs girls that have been playing for multiple years already, so she may have to accept a 2nd or 3rd team spot.

at this point, you may have a rough time trying to find a team (unless you know someone) as rosters are set. most tryouts are august/september for the following season.

Most likely. You can reach out to clubs and inquire. There is always a chance they are looking to add one or two for the spring/summer season. But most likely, many are full

Has the team changed much since the Fall Bay Bash? The team really didn't look that impressive on the field...results not typical of a YJ team? They seemed to struggle...even with the town teams.

To any parents of the 24 team I would suggest NOT engaging in this type of discussion on your team. There are no positives in doing this only negatives. People outside the team with stir the pot. Just my advice.

How is that different from any other organization? Aren't fall tournaments typically optional? Are the players not part of the organization? I have to admit, YJ nation always has a good excuse for when they don't live up to the "Elite" Hype.

YJ 2024 Blue wins the Lax by the Sea tourney, great final game against STEPS Elite Blue. Have to say though, the STEPS director was out of hand on the sideline during the final game. She was screaming at the ref about giving a red card instead of a yellow and then yelling at some of the YJ parents on the sidelines. Scary stuff, some of the girls were shocked by the language.

No way. Just like some left last year we'll be leaving this year. Isn't the customer always supposed to be right? That's how a great business operates. Otherwise people won't patronize that business. It's already happening at the lower age groups. Plenty of other options out there. Daddy coaches are ok for PAL and volunteer teams but not when you spend a few thousand. So your telling me SG is making your kid a better player? Doubt it. Keep kissing [lacrosse]. Same thing with the 2024 mommy coach.

Looking forward to watching some good Long Island teams playing this weekend without having to travel up the NJ Turnpike. It would be great to see a league like the National Youth Lacrosse league in Maryland where all the travel teams play each other over a season. I think it would benefit the girls amongst all the programs in the long run.

True. I just feel that we, as Long Islanders, are missing out on something that can truly be beneficial for girl's lacrosse. Unfortunately some directors feel there is nothing to gain for themselves as an organization so they'll never do it.

No, really only bashing Igloo. Their parents and crazy Syosset director (who dreams of one day beating a YJ team) made an agreement with our coaches that the last game of the round robin rounds would be for the championship. It was a long tourney in the heat and nobody wanted to sit around until 8pm waiting to play again. Lo and behold, after we smoked them, they forgot about the handshake agreement and made all of us sit around for another two hours......only to be smoked again. Waste of the kids time because AA is dying to win something, especially against YJ. No chance buddy, stay in you lane and stay on LI.

You are correct though, no need to bash those other clubs. While they don't compare to YJ, they are hopefully giving their kids and parents what they are looking for in a lax club experience. My apologies to them.

Nope, parents and kids get along great. Lots of team dinners while playing great competition down in MD, Delaware and NJ. Great summer had by all. Stick to boys lacrosse AA, apparently you've made some headway there. Having JC as an Igloo coach probably won't get your kid on Syo V, but at least he lets you talk to him. Just be careful if he stops short, you'll end up in an ugly place.

What a poor display of sportsmanship by the 91 coach today in the final at Lacrosse by 3

I have to agree. Coach must have known the scoreboard was wrong, but couldn't accept the loss. Only to end up losing in a BraveHeart at the end.

That's one way to look at it. Another is parents losing their minds and screaming like 2 year olds needed to be put in their place. One thing is for sure if you are going to bring down ringers try and get a full uniform for them so it is not so obvious.

Good try detective. The player you are referencing has been on the team for 2 years. We can all lose our shorts sometimes.

Because a 10 year old doesn't have matching shorts it means they are not on the team. Please, my kids have lost more clothing and equipment then I care to admit. And if they were trying to cheat I think they would have made sure the shorts matched.

What is sad is that your trying to deflect the attention away from the fact that every parent from both teams knew the score was incorrect and 1 team tried to let the refs and coaches know (albeit by yelling across the field), while the other sat idly by.

These children are 10/11 years old, a lesson in sportsmanship would have been more appropriate. Just curious how your coach explained that too the children after the game?

This has to be coming from the women who sat there complaining about the calls the whole game and then in the next breath she's saying she doesn't know the rules. So, let me get this straight, different shorts = ringer not on the team. You know there goggles didn't match either. Can you imagine if she went to a boys game and saw all the different shorts and helmets.

No, really only bashing Igloo. Their parents and crazy Syosset director (who dreams of one day beating a YJ team) made an agreement with our coaches that the last game of the round robin rounds would be for the championship. It was a long tourney in the heat and nobody wanted to sit around until 8pm waiting to play again. Lo and behold, after we smoked them, they forgot about the handshake agreement and made all of us sit around for another two hours......only to be smoked again. Waste of the kids time because AA is dying to win something, especially against YJ. No chance buddy, stay in you lane and stay on LI.

You are correct though, no need to bash those other clubs. While they don't compare to YJ, they are hopefully giving their kids and parents what they are looking for in a lax club experience. My apologies to them.


What a tool bag you are for a guy whose daughter rides pine. You would be better off keeping your mouth shut, diarrhea keeps spilling out.


Good one, go back out to the playground.

Looking for a sanity check on how to properly size my daughters stick length. I currently have it cut for 36.5 inches. Parents are telling me that her stick length is too short and that it's messing up her hand placement. My daughter has a tendency to "power cradle" like a boy does (probably from watching me) with her top hand at the top of the head. I think the stick length is fine and that her mechanics are poor. Anyone know what a typical length is for an attacker/mid/def?

Any help would be greatly apprciated!

I was told the stick should come up roughly to the bottom on the rib cage on the player. That is the guide I use with my girls if that is any help.

According to the rule book..the minimum length is 35.5 inches and the maximum is 43.25 inches....but, the general rule of thumb is to put the butt of the stick in the girl's armpit and have her hold her arm out to the side, where her hand grasps should be just below the head after the handle has been cut. i typically have the parents leave the stick a little longer and see if that's workable - then they aren't buying another shaft after a growth spurt.
