Lots of clinics and prospect days coming up here on Long Island. Should be a good gauge on how the talent on the 2019 and 20's are looking. Long Island's talent pool is dwindling and 2019 is such a weak age group all around. Will recruiting pick up for them? TG and YJ already have a few commits, is 2020 the new wave? Should be pretty interesting to see all the girls battling it out for looks. Do any of the High Schools have winter workouts?

Overall they are maybe a touch above average, but they are in the middle of two weaker than usual classes of 2017 (very weak) and 2019 (slightly weak).

No actually. She has interest from top d1 programs. Unlike yourself she wants more than books and meals

Interest? funny, everybody has interest...let us know when you get that big offer from the top d1 programs.

Oh lord, are we still doing this top ranked D1 lacrosse thing?
Just in case you didn't notice there are no big offers to play at the professional level either. So why get crazy over this stuff?
After 4 years of D1 level of play only the player will care where they played.

D2 here as well, very generous athletic/academic money and we get to see every game as they will all be played within 4 hours of our area. Excellent new program and vibrant, safe campus. Had D1 offers but rosters were huge and some of the colleges were very run down. Listen to your child! It may not be what YOU want but YOU don't have the same instinct your child does, trust in what you raised. I know several girls from club ball who barely played in high school or club but psycho Dads were obsessed with saying the kind d is "playing D1" but what they don't mention is its a flight or 8 hour drive away- for a 10% scholarship.

Arguing with idiots is like playing chess with a pigeon. No matter how good you are, the bird is going to S#!$ on the board and strut around like it won anyway.

I feel your pain. And we shall wait together to find out what great D1 schools were turned down for these amazing D2 opportunities. That plane ride to Stanford or Northwestern is soooo overrated.

You're missing the point. Committing to a D1 school and never seeing the field isn't for everyone. If the education, playing time, money and comfort is there in. D2 school for an athlete it's a wonderful thing. Travel is a consideration for some folks who don't have the money to fly to games and stay in hotels. Many families have other school age children, maybe one income homes or have disabled spouse or special needs kids that can't travel. So yea, sometimes D2 schools are a better fit, No sarcasm here, enjoy watching your child play wherever they decide because life throws you curveballs every now and then and you never know how long you have left. Peace.

This post is spot on! The people who post sarcastic comments are so ignorant. I for one am a small
Business owner with 4 kids under 16. My sophomore just commited to an excellent academic d2 school within a 3 hr drive of my home. That's what worked for us. She had 2 offers from good d1 lax schools. But they were not as good once you factored in the travel time expenses and th possibility of. Not playing as much.

100% agree. Some parents would rather their kids play at the 110th D1 school which plays absolutely awful lacrosse just to say they play D1. Bad academics and bad lacrosse but it is D1!

Glad to see more realistic conversation about low D1 and D2's instead of every person on here talking about how lacrosse is getting their kid into NC or an IVY

Its just my opinion, but i would sacrifice me being able to see my kid play live, for her to be at a better school. We've heard on the forum alot about kids having good d1 offers, curious to hear which schools. I do agree with going to a D2 school instead of a D1 school and not getting on the field. With that said its none of my business or anyone else what decisions people make.

Everyone should make whatever decisions are best for them of course. There is just so much misinformation floating around on here though that sometimes it seems like it's difficult to really know the tradeoffs you are making. Financially, academically etc. Not just for the short run, but for the long run. For instance, if it's a 10k a year difference, but a much better academic institution, seems like it might be worth it to take a student loan for the difference etc. Or the guy that says u need 100 GPA to get into an Ivy, which is wrong. And I know a kid going to G-town w a 2.9 GPA and one to BC w similar. So what are the grades a kid actually needs to get into certain schools. Whether it's D1, D2 or D3. It would be great if people were willing to honestly share the tradeoffs they have made. It would help the rest of us. What D1 schools were turned down for the D2 opportunity. Who's kid made the decision to play D3? Why? What's the equivalent talent level in D1 for Courtland or Middlebury? So what are some likely choices between divisions for that level of player etc.

Re: Girls High School Lax - 10/06/16 05:18 PM

Turned down Coastal Carolina (pretty but did not offer enough$$) LaSalle (too small and daughter did not get a good vibe from team) and Niagara (they will take anyone from LI, not competitive and way to far). Had great offers from Limestone (loved it but too far) Mercy (gorgeous new school in great college town, coach terrific) Pace (new program, bigger school and great energy) and Adelphi (not much $$ and too close lol). Decided on Pace, like the new facilities and roster size plus they offer great business program. Daughters bf going to Mercy so it's a win win for us. To everyone starting to look- visit schools while they are in session. Go to a game, watch the coach, see if you like the style of coaching. New programs offer unique opportunities, don't rule them out. No reason to insult anyone on their decisions, it's about finding the right fit with ALL factors considered. Good luck.

Hofstra -she didn't like SSat all and no I'm not a YJ dad, Sacred Heart, didn't like school and Denver, despite decent financial offer the cost of travel to see games and get home wasn't beneficial. Decided on Caldwell. Small school, very generous and coach sincerely cares about each girl. If your kid loves the game and doesn't play she will be miserable and come home and be embarrassed. Look at stats, find out if coach plays underclass. It's s significant piece to decision.

Look at subbing too. IF the coach subs rarely, and always the same 2 or 3 players, then it's tough to break in to play.

This was an exact question my daughter asked several coaches about playing time as a freshman. The school she chose the coach said. Why would I only play my upperclassmen. When they graduate what am I supposed to do?

Who's kid made the decision to play D3? Why? What's the equivalent talent level in D1 for Courtland or Middlebury? So what are some likely choices between divisions for that level of player etc.



"What are the grades that a kid actually needs to get into certain schools?"

- It all depends on where the coach has the player ranked on their recruiting list. The #1 recruit on the list will not have the same requirements as the # 8.

The Ivy's work off of an "academic index" there are minimum requirements for each individual. However, the average for the recruiting class is significantly higher than the minimum therefore if a priority recruit is close to the minimum the coach will take a less qualified player if they have better grades (in order to pull the class average up).

Other Highly Competitive Schools such as Duke, Georgetown, BC, ND etc... have what are known as "Slots". The coach has the ability to get a certain number of players into the school. In general, those students must have very good grades but the requirements are less than a regular student would need to get into the school. For a recruited athlete the coach would like to see 90+ avg and a minimum of 1200 on the SAT and 27 ACT. Anything less would be cause for concern. Again, the coach will have more flexibility with their top recruits.

From what I have been told, Northwestern does not have a cap on admission slots but they follow similar guideline as to who they choose to get into the school.

Remember, the coaches want the kids to be successful both on the field and in the classroom. Coaches will only take so many chances with players who do not demonstrate that they have the ability to succeed in the classroom.

As far as scholarship dollars go, don't listen to anyone. Each individual case is different. The Top recruits at fully funded schools are offered significant $$. The #1 recruit might get 75% or more, the #5 might get 25-30% and the #9 or #10 might be offered an admission slot and no athletic scholarship.
Each case is different.

If finances and cost are your biggest concern explore all options. If your daughter is a good student and a good lacrosse player you should be able to find a school that will be able to make it work financially.

If your daughter is a great student and a great lacrosse player she can write her own ticked to any school she wants. if your daughter is great student and an ok lacrosse player she can fide a school that will give her a lot of academic $$. If your daughter is a great lacrosse player and an average student she will be just fine as well, some really good schools will give plenty of athletic $$.

Ivy's do not offer athletic scholarships. (they have very generous need based aid).

Schools like Northwestens, Georgetown, Hopkins, ND, BC also offer generous need based aid packages. (they also offer athletic scholarships)

To the best of my knowledge you can not combine Athletic $$ and Need Based Aid. You can however combine Academic $$ and Athletic $$.

If your daughter is being recruited and offered a spot at North Carolina, Maryland, Penn State and Syracuse but not being offered a lot of $$ you can drop down a notch and be offered a lot more $$. It works the same way on the Academic side. If your daughter has the grades to be recruited and offered a spot and an Ivy you can drop down a bit academically and pick up significant academic $$.

DII and DIII have different rules than DI.

Everyone should make whatever decisions are best for them of course. There is just so much misinformation floating around on here though that sometimes it seems like it's difficult to really know the tradeoffs you are making. Financially, academically etc. Not just for the short run, but for the long run. For instance, if it's a 10k a year difference, but a much better academic institution, seems like it might be worth it to take a student loan for the difference etc. Or the guy that says u need 100 GPA to get into an Ivy, which is wrong. And I know a kid going to G-town w a 2.9 GPA and one to BC w similar. So what are the grades a kid actually needs to get into certain schools. Whether it's D1, D2 or D3. It would be great if people were willing to honestly share the tradeoffs they have made. It would help the rest of us. What D1 schools were turned down for the D2 opportunity. Who's kid made the decision to play D3? Why? What's the equivalent talent level in D1 for Courtland or Middlebury? So what are some likely choices between divisions for that level of player etc.



"What are the grades that a kid actually needs to get into certain schools?"

- It all depends on where the coach has the player ranked on their recruiting list. The #1 recruit on the list will not have the same requirements as the # 8.

The Ivy's work off of an "academic index" there are minimum requirements for each individual. However, the average for the recruiting class is significantly higher than the minimum therefore if a priority recruit is close to the minimum the coach will take a less qualified player if they have better grades (in order to pull the class average up).

Other Highly Competitive Schools such as Duke, Georgetown, BC, ND etc... have what are known as "Slots". The coach has the ability to get a certain number of players into the school. In general, those students must have very good grades but the requirements are less than a regular student would need to get into the school. For a recruited athlete the coach would like to see 90+ avg and a minimum of 1200 on the SAT and 27 ACT. Anything less would be cause for concern. Again, the coach will have more flexibility with their top recruits.

From what I have been told, Northwestern does not have a cap on admission slots but they follow similar guideline as to who they choose to get into the school.

Remember, the coaches want the kids to be successful both on the field and in the classroom. Coaches will only take so many chances with players who do not demonstrate that they have the ability to succeed in the classroom.

As far as scholarship dollars go, don't listen to anyone. Each individual case is different. The Top recruits at fully funded schools are offered significant $$. The #1 recruit might get 75% or more, the #5 might get 25-30% and the #9 or #10 might be offered an admission slot and no athletic scholarship.
Each case is different.

If finances and cost are your biggest concern explore all options. If your daughter is a good student and a good lacrosse player you should be able to find a school that will be able to make it work financially.

If your daughter is a great student and a great lacrosse player she can write her own ticked to any school she wants. if your daughter is great student and an ok lacrosse player she can fide a school that will give her a lot of academic $$. If your daughter is a great lacrosse player and an average student she will be just fine as well, some really good schools will give plenty of athletic $$.

Ivy's do not offer athletic scholarships. (they have very generous need based aid).

Schools like Northwestens, Georgetown, Hopkins, ND, BC also offer generous need based aid packages. (they also offer athletic scholarships)

To the best of my knowledge you can not combine Athletic $$ and Need Based Aid. You can however combine Academic $$ and Athletic $$.

If your daughter is being recruited and offered a spot at North Carolina, Maryland, Penn State and Syracuse but not being offered a lot of $$ you can drop down a notch and be offered a lot more $$. It works the same way on the Academic side. If your daughter has the grades to be recruited and offered a spot and an Ivy you can drop down a bit academically and pick up significant academic $$.

DII and DIII have different rules than DI.


Wow. Thank you. Best, most accurate post I have ever seen on here. Huge help to lots of people trying to figure out the road ahead.

Re: Girls High School Lax - 10/08/16 11:22 AM

Very good post , would say I have found some schools reluctant to give out both academic and athletic money . What I mean is if you are getting athletic money you needed to be above the non athlete academically to get the same academic money . As an example let's say at a school a 3.7 gets you a 25 percent academic monies , as an athlete you would need a 3.8-3.85 . I have been told that this is done so as to not set off any red flags at the NCAA i.e. Institutions that give academic money as a way to get more athletes in . Makes getting academic and athletic money very difficult at say a Duke and even at certain state schools , UVA , UNC, UMD , etc when applying from out of state .

You're missing the point. Committing to a D1 school and never seeing the field isn't for everyone. If the education, playing time, money and comfort is there in. D2 school for an athlete it's a wonderful thing. Travel is a consideration for some folks who don't have the money to fly to games and stay in hotels. Many families have other school age children, maybe one income homes or have disabled spouse or special needs kids that can't travel. So yea, sometimes D2 schools are a better fit, No sarcasm here, enjoy watching your child play wherever they decide because life throws you curveballs every now and then and you never know how long you have left. Peace.

This post is spot on! The people who post sarcastic comments are so ignorant. I for one am a small
Business owner with 4 kids under 16. My sophomore just commited to an excellent academic d2 school within a 3 hr drive of my home. That's what worked for us. She had 2 offers from good d1 lax schools. But they were not as good once you factored in the travel time expenses and th possibility of. Not playing as much.


Its just my opinion, but i would sacrifice me being able to see my kid play live, for her to be at a better school. We've heard on the forum alot about kids having good d1 offers, curious to hear which schools. I do agree with going to a D2 school instead of a D1 school and not getting on the field.

DII and DIII have different rules than DI.



Some thoughts that might be helpful.

If a school expresses sincere interest and you and your daughter think the school is a good fit be sure to make the coach aware that your daughter would love to attend the school. Unless your daughter is a true stud there will be 10 other girls on the coaches list that are just as good as your daughter. Coaches want to take the kids who want to go to their school. All things being equal they will take the girl who returns the most love.

There is nothing wrong with setting high goals, dreaming big and shooting for the stars but once the recruiting process begins you and your daughter need to evaluate honestly.

To start, all of the big time programs go after most of the same kids. Maryland, North Carolina, Northwestern, Duke, Syracuse, Princeton, Penn, Florida, BC, ND, Penn State, Southern California, Stanford and any other perennial Top 10 - 20 team recruit the same 10 - 30 girls. After the majority of the top recruits commit the coaches move on and start on the next group. No one school gets all of the top girls. Some get more than others but nobody gets all of the top recruits.

The takeaway is (and this is where honestly evaluating comes in) The caliber of schools (lacrosse caliber) that are making offers will tell you where you stand. Maryland, North Carolina and Northwestern are not competing against UMass, UConn and Albany for their top recruits. If the top programs are not making offers your daughter is probably not a top recruit. Thats okay, there are great schools with great lacrosse programs that your daughter can have a great experience at without going to the Final Four.

All is not lost if you do not get offers in the first few rounds. When schools start to fill up their spots the dynamic and criteria can change. Schools do not get all of the recruits they want. For example: the top five recruits on Notre Dames list could choose to go to Duke, Northwestern, Princeton, Stanford and Virginia. When that occurs ND's #6 and #7 become #1 and #2 very quickly. Cornell's top recruits might choose to go to Hopkins, Princeton and Penn. Uconn's top recruits might choose to go to Stony Brook, UMass and Boston University. You get the idea.

Also, in the later rounds, GPA and Test Scores play a larger role as does money.
Harvard or Penn might have a spot for a kid who has exceptional grades and test scores. Duke or North Carolina might have a spot for a for a student athlete who has very good grades and does not need any financial help.

DI, II and III combine for 500 plus Women's Lacrosse Programs. Add to that all of the competitive Club Programs and there is a place for your daughter to play if they enjoy all that a team sport can offer a college student.

Maybe your daughter has very good grades and test scores, wants to go to a big Rah Rah school but is not a strong enough player to compete at Maryland, North Carolina or Penn State. Maybe she can get a lot of academic money at Ohio State or another big university and play club and have an incredible college experience and get great education. Again, you get the idea.

Don't get caught up in the mess that we call youth/HS/club lacrosse. Be smart, remember when one door closes another one opens. Find the best opportunity for your daughter and don't worry about what everyone else is doing.

Good luck to all and enjoy the ride.

From someone who has been down the road a few times with kids of different abilities and interests. From top recruit to middle of the pack. From great student to average student.

Monmouth and UMass Lowell made very nice offers to me. I decided on Tufts, I really liked the school and I liked how the girls on the team all bonded with each other. no regrets here!

After the top 20 schools most are all playing the same mediocre lacrosse so unless your daughter is an absolute star pick the school where she will be successful on and off the field and if she goes somewhere where you can actually get to watch games that's a huge plus!

Parents who have watched every game their daughter has ever played are in for a real shock when games are being played on the west coast and they cant attend anymore

Of course Monmouth wanted her she would have been the smartest girl on campus. Average SAT for Tufts is 1450 average SAT for Monmouth is 1000 and if you can play its even lower.

Go for the education every time!

I agree! And remember a D3 or D 2 NCAA championship game is no less important than a D1 'ship! Despite what some dillusional moms say ALL NCAA rings cost the same, so the lunatic that tries to say her sons D1 ring is $2500 looks like an idiot-and so does her child, especially when he's handing out water on the sideline in his collared shirt and pants. Celebrate all athletes, especially those who actually play.

The rationalizations keep coming and the stones keep getting thrown at high acieving kids. You jealous parents r pretty pathetic. Get over it. Your kid is ok, not great, but there is nothing wrong with that.

Last time that I checked...

Princeton, Harvard, Yale, Columbia, Stanford, Duke, Penn, Hopkins, Dartmouth, Northwestern, Brown, Cornell, Notre Dame, Vanderbilt, Georgetown, University of California--Berkeley, Southern California, Virginia, Michigan, North Carolina, Boston College, William and Mary, UC Santa Barbara, Boston University, North Eastern, Lehigh, Penn State, Florida, Villanova and many more including Army and Navy .

All have DI Women's Lacrosse Programs.

The jealousy and bitterness on this site is unbelievable.

You can get a great education and play DI lacrosse.

Find the best fit for your daughter and don't knock those who choose a different path.

I never heard of so many high achieving kids in my life, seems every parent that posts on this board has a kid going to Northwestern or Stanford. I always thought my daughter was in the majority with her 90+gpa and pretty good lax skills but I guess we are the exception. Who would have thought?

90+ GPA (as long as that's in honors/AP classes) will get your kid in most places if they have the lax skills. Sounds like yours might not be as good as you think. Someone just listed for you above a very long list (and still not complete) of great academic institutions w D1 lax. Well beyond just NU and Stanford. If your 90+ GPA daughter isn't being looked at by them, it just means she's not a good enough lax player. No problem, it isn't a good fit and she will end up in a great situation for her somewhere else.

The point is that it's very middle of the road lacrosse after the top 10-12. Most of the best athletes end up at a top 10 school. Look at the poles, and who is in the tournament year after year. It doesn't change much. Yes, if you look at it literally an 11 or 12 will usually beat a 50, but the lacrosse and level of play is just not what it is at the top schools. The drop off is drastic at a certain point. The poster who said find the best fit is absolutely right. At the end of the day it's all about the overall college experience.

And some kids that are having the best college experience are at schools ranked 50-125 where the lacrosse is dreadful but the girls play big minutes as freshman and have a better lax/life balance. If you aren't going to a school that will compete for a national championship pick a school that is the perfect fit we have been there!

And some kids are having the best college experience at schools ranked 10-50. And some at top 10. And some at D3 etc. All this stuff is nonsense. Kids can have good and bad experiences at all of these places. But what is a fact is that parents keep trying to downplay the highest achieving most talented lax kids, by claiming that they aren't having a good college experience, or they aren't playing, or they don't take tough classes and on and on. The reality is that it is mostly just jealousy. There are many many girls playing on very good lax teams, getting great educations and loving their college experience. Is it for everyone. Absolutely not. You have to be highly motivated, highly skilled and a strong student to handle it all well. So kudos those kids.

Clearly have zero idea what you are talking about. Let me guess, u can't understand why your daughter wasn't recruited at BC, Penn, Stanford, UVA ... u know, those mediocre below 8-10 teams in the country. I'm sure there are lots of people that could tell you why. You just won't believe them.

D3 no athletic monies but lots of academic awards and there should be since the school has a starting price of $65k! Lax will get a slightly weaker academic kid in but in our experience D3 doesn't bend nearly as much on the academics as NCAA D1 sports. Just watch march madness of ACC or SEC football and its pretty obvious coaches are walking players in

It doesn't change much. Yes, if you look at it literally an 11 or 12 will usually beat a 50, but the lacrosse and level of play is just not what it is at the top schools. The drop off is drastic at a certain point. The poster who said find the best fit is absolutely right. At the end of the day it's all about the overall college experience.


And some kids that are having the best college experience are at schools ranked 50-125 where the lacrosse is dreadful but the girls play big minutes as freshman and have a better lax/life balance. If you aren't going to a school that will compete for a national championship pick a school that is the perfect fit we have been there!


And some kids are having the best college experience at schools ranked 10-50. And some at top 10. And some at D3 etc. All this stuff is nonsense. Kids can have good and bad experiences at all of these places. But what is a fact is that parents keep trying to downplay the highest achieving most talented lax kids, by claiming that they aren't having a good college experience, or they aren't playing, or they don't take tough classes and on and on. The reality is that it is mostly just jealousy. There are many many girls playing on very good lax teams, getting great educations and loving their college experience. Is it for everyone. Absolutely not. You have to be highly motivated, highly skilled and a strong student to handle it all well. So kudos those kids.


Best post I have seen .

D3 no athletic monies but lots of academic awards and there should be since the school has a starting price of $65k! Lax will get a slightly weaker academic kid in but in our experience D3 doesn't bend nearly as much on the academics as NCAA D1 sports. Just watch march madness of ACC or SEC football and its pretty obvious coaches are walking players in


If you think you will be getting academic money to tufts you better have 1500 SAT and be top in your class

FYI, Tufts offers no merit scholarships. $0. No athletic money either obviously. They do meet 100% of financial need as determined by the parents EFC, but again, no merit money.

Is great to see it growing. Somewhat of a popularity contest as well. Several girls on the younger lists are there because their older sisters are really good etc. Is what it is. Not to mention that inside lax expands their readership if there if geographic diversity on these lists.

I will translate this post, qbecause it's true. inside Lacrosse stands to benefit if it adds players from outside the mid Atlantic, New [lacrosse] try-state, New England regions. They are trying to "grow readership" as much as the sport. The truth is 490 out of 500 players could be justified from within the 3 above mentioned areas. keep in mind the current political situation and what the media can accomplish to further it's own goals.

I will translate this post for you . My little superstar did not get named so there must be a reason because she is the greatest player my wife and I have ever seen . Stop being a douchbag , congratulate the kids on the list and move on . What you really should do is introduce yourself to some of the kids on the list dads if you see them at a tournament and tell them your opinion , now that would be a first .

President George H. W. Bush does. You mean a highly intelligent, hard working, accomplished woman? You do realize you are talking about the likely first woman President of the United States of America. 30 years of old white men fearing a woman president has resulted in 3 decades of trashing this woman. And she has withstood it and looks like she is going to come out on top. I'd say there is quite a lot to be emulated there for young women. And if you are a Trump supporter, you are the likely reason it's going to happen. Because if MY republican party had nominated a reasonable candidate, we would have won the election going away. So yeah, I can both not like many of her/Dems policies and still recognize that she is an accomplished woman. And I can also hate the fact that Trump is our nominee.

Too funny it's just like lacrosse both sides blind and drinking the kook-aid. If you cannot see that Trump sophmoric and that Hillary is s terrible role model for young girls you are all blind . Stand by your man even when he has been proven to have mistreated you time and again with a track record of mistreating women or the load mouth bully ,good luck to us all.

No power conference in Suffolk and in Nassau come the playoffs there is no power conference either . I think the new alignment has made the division even weaker in Suffolk because you used to have B, C playing against each other that will no longer be the case I believe.

West islip did lose a lot of fire power. But they have some excellent players left and a lot of talent up and comin. He's a great coach. That will make the difference

West Islip # 1 until someone beats them.
Middle Country # 2. Could this be their year?
Smithtown West # 3 will chalenge WI and MC for top spot.
Northport # 4 will be in the mix also.


It doesn't work that way in hs sports, kids graduate, its not like the pros where you keep the team together.


Exactly. A lot depends on what is coming down the pike. There are some teams that were loaded with seniors. On the flip side, there are some teams that had virtually none last season.

West islip did lose a lot of fire power. But they have some excellent players left and a lot of talent up and comin. He's a great coach. That will make the difference


WI is a lax town with strong youth program leading in. Many, many players are well established and highly developed club players. A really bad coach can still F that up, but I would not go calling a coach great because it is not his development or doing. Give him a limited roster with limited talent and he will not look so good.

Re: Girls High School Lax - 11/03/16 09:07 PM

Well he only has 4-5 returning starters and lost one All American
I don't know him personally, so no strings attached herebut from what I have read and seen in the past, you are WI parent that was dying to be a coach and had no balls to do it. Watch WI team prove you wrong !!!!!!!!

Do not count out Ward Melville. They have a lot of talent. This could be a very good season for them. West islip will be a shell of it's former self. They get very little help coming out of their juniors. Only one is ready to play. Rest will get minimal time. Sophomore going to Syracuse will fill some of the void but overall this will be a down year by West Islip standards

ward Melville has some very talented girls. They're problem lies with the coach. I know people argue that does not matter. If you have the talent but you don't put players on the field or in the right positions, you will fall short every time.

.

Been hearing that every year. Then when season goes south, the parents come on here telling us they have the most talented players and should be winning, then proceed to throw the coach under the bus. Oh look, it's starting already!

Here we go. Although past performance does not equal future results...

! - West Islip. 35 - 8 over the past two seasons. They win in the playoffs and they win with less overall talent than some teams. They have a great coach who has helped the program develop a winning attitude. Don't count them out just yet.

2 - Middle Country. 34 - 3 over the past two seasons. Have had some highly touted players the past few years and have a very impressive record but have not been able to win the county championship. They will have another chance this year.

3 - Smithtown West. 28 -7 the past two seasons. They were very good last year. Almost pulled it out vs WI in the playoffs. A lot of talent. As good a chance as anyone.

4 - Northport. 27 - 9 the past two seasons. Coaching is very good. Some very good players and a fair amount of depth. Would be surprised if they are not in the mix.

Mc for some reason just can't finish the job. This yr could be their yr. WI will have to definitely adjust this yr. the seniors now barely played last season as they weren't need with the powerful seniors they had. I believe they only have 4 returning starters, one being the goalie so that'll help

Team has trouble getting out of the first round of the playoffs every year. In years past they have lost to inferior teams for some reason. A number of players are on the field hockey team that is headed upstate. Maybe this will be beneficial come lacrosse season. Playoff nerves shouldn't bother them any more.

Yes, you WM parents tell us that every year. Maybe your high opinion of yourselves and low opinion of the team's you face has something to do with the "unexpected" outcome every year. Or just blame the coach, that works.

Best example of this is cold spring harbor. They play all season with the best teams and then go back and win their size based divisional playoffs with their eyes closed. Playoff always have to go back to school size so you can advance to states

No state championship yet for Wantagh... with move to Class C the path should be easier.
Won't have to beat Set or GC to get out of Nassau. CSH will now have some competition. Should make the C class more interesting to watch and less predictable. Wantagh graduated the best players they have had in a while, and CSH, not so much. Early predictions give CSH the edge to get out of Nassau.

Not from Wantagh but the B conference in Nassau is probably the second hardest league next to the IAMM in MD. Wantagh, GC, and Manhasset were all in the top 15 teams in the country for the past 2-3 years. They should be competitive in the C's with CSH, North Shore...etc. Unfortunately whoever gets out of Nassau C will more than likely have to Mt Sinai who looks to be on paper a very tough team

Agree except Plainedge. Like Wantagh, their talent graduated, but they hired the Wantagh coach so they will finish in middle of pack. Shut down the one ball hog senior (which isn't hard) and they're done. North Shore will be the tram to beat. Anyone have Nassau conferences yet that they can post?

Re: Girls High School Lax - 12/30/16 04:20 PM

On weak teams ball hogs hog more, not less. Very easy to defend. Deep teams win and coaches that force the ball to be shared always have the most success. Sadly, stat padding is embraced in our sport so look for more of the same in Newsday with the stat leaders playing on crappy teams in low divisions

Wantagh is now in C conference...no GC, Manhasset, or LB in playoffs. They will probably play in power conference during year though

Wantagh will have to face CSH. They lost some outstanding seniors but still have some players. CSH probably wins with their goalie.

If your daughter is playing on a top or very competitive club team that plays the other top teams, you really don;t need to do any of these showcases in our experience for your daughter to get recruited. If you do do a showcase, Under Armour or the Elite 120 are the best in our experience for exposure. When the time is right, reach out via emails to a number of schools that might be a fit academcially and athletically for your daughter and speak to the head of your club or club coach about these schools. If a match, these coaches will watch her play whihc is really how the process will start. If interested, they will tell her to attend their camp.

GC and Manhasset will still be the teams to beat. LB and Wantagh next two


Wantagh is now in C conference...no GC, Manhasset, or LB in playoffs. They will probably play in power conference during year though


Is that true? So now Cold Spring actually has some competition in the playoffs? GC v Sett in B, CSH v Wantagh in C


Do not forget about North Shore and maybe Plainedge and Seaford who are also in the C's. There are now (4) conferences in NYS

Take it easy on Seaford and Plainedge. Both will have a top scorer in the county and both teams will be horrible in competitive games because its a team game. same story for theses two town year after year. Zero depth and zero team play. North Shore is always competitive

Class D has 5 teams. Port Jeff had to forfeit almost all their games. Center Moriches and Mercy would lose to most JV teams. Babylon and Mattituck are the only teams worth playing

Class A is not wide open. MC, WI, NP and SW. No clear cut favorite but most of the teams in the league have no chance.

BBP will be in the mix.

I think West Islip is lumped in there just on reputation. They will not be nearly as good as the past two seasons. Ward Melville has to be added to that bunch. 14 D1 commits between their seniors and juniors has to pan out eventually. BBP has 2 key players out with ACL tears. That's a big thing to overcome. Plus add in they lost a very good goalie and she wasnt replaced.

Don't count wi out. They are a tenacious group with a great coach. Ward Melville has the talent but cannot get out of their own way. Sw lost a couple of key players but they have some great young talent. Np too cocky

Great coach can only do so much when the talent is lacking. Losing the senior going to Syracuse was huge. She held that team together. Senior going to Loyola doesn't have that same tenacity. Only 1 junior on the team had significant playing time on offense. Sophomore commit to Syracuse will be asked to do a lot this season. Junior goalie is solid in the net.

Agreed current senior while good, lacks her intensity. The current freshman at Jacksonville was a far better player on paper. They have a lot of work to do but a few will step into some big shoes. Everyone knows my Sinai is the best team on the island. Lots of team bonding off field makes for success on

Is she solid in the net???? Time will tell being they graduated a very strong defense. No returning starters

Why is nobody talking about the IL indoor event on the weekend of the 9th. The top 32 teams as ranked by IL squaring off in what is the closest thing to a girls national championship as we have ever seen. Am I the only one that thinks this. Old develop into something big.

Nice tournament and good idea, but clearly not a national championship. It is indoor and not all top teams are playing (see Summit, Ridgewood, others). Still a good idea.

ok, serious? because Jersey teams arent there? They took the final rankings from the 2016 season and invited all those teams to bring there best players to a tournament close to Jersey. If the schools, coaches or players decided not to attend thats a forfeit of there ranking spot. It seems to me the organizers allowed those teams that gave up, or couldn't find enough commited players to then take players from other schools to fill in rosters. And lets be frank about this, it's not like the N.J. teams are really going to beat the likes of Mc Donogh, Manhasset, or Garden City. Walton (Ga.) St Anthony's (NY) and Westwood (Mass) are also no going but that is on each school so because your region doesn't send a team doesn't make it "not real" the only thing "not real" is your reigons commitment to finding out who is the best. I mean look at Mass. elite complaining how they should be considered top 5 club but not sending there only top ranked team to this event to prove it. And Mass parents , don't complain about the distance, Novato California is sending a team. Most of the top H.S. teams are sending teams if yours isn't you don't get to complain you should have sent a team. This silly sentament that its only 7v7 is also ridicules wether you put your best 12 or best 7 on the field makes little difference you still play your best so in the end it my best against your best. These girls are top athletes and will play to win, this should be fun

The best team in the country will be there(McDonogh). That's the team everyone should want to play just to see where you stack up. Yes 7 on 7 isn't like a real game but it will be fun none the less.

Lots of great teams and many, many talented young ladies. It's still indoor, 7 v 7, no draw lacrosse, but I am looking forward to watching the girls play. .

and last time I check (look at laxpower dope) Summit beat the two LI teams they played last year - Eastport South-Manor and Smithtown West. I know, I know no NJs teams can play with anybody on LI according to you. Again, nice tournament but no indoor 7-7 has anything to do with a national championship. Just in your crazy parent eyes.

Says the parent whose kid probably plays for yj.
Not only am I NOT a Y.J. parent, I don't even have a daughter attending the event. I just think it will put the truly best H.S. teams in one tournament. I personally don't see why you would even bring up the Yellow Jackets. First N.P. isn't invited, second C.R. has no vested interest in this event, and lastly one of the main competitors is Manhasset/ liberty a team she hates (and where my daughter plays) so whats your point with that? I state again just because your coaches/ school didn't have the foresight to send a team does not delegitimize the event, it just means your out this year and you have to deal with that. Personally I hope the event is a huge success, and that next year it happens either very late in the spring so that the seniors of that year can play, or late in the summer so that it csn happen on full fields. either way it comes down to the best players on the best teams playing against each other

Lets be real about this, you jersey people are boasting about 2 wins but fail to mention that they lost to st. stephens who will be attending, but those are the only 3 games your top teams played all year outside of N.J. and its not like you beat either team handily you beat E.S.M. by 1 and smith west by 4. just for the record G.C. beat E.S.M. by 4 and Darien (#8) by 8. You Jersyites can call me a dope all you want, and some of your teams seem to be competitive, but until either you H.S. teams start playing a more competitive out of state schedule where they are beating top teams frequently, or at least put together a club team that is competitive with L.I and MD. we will never really know. Either way for you to try to delegitimize any event because YOU did not send your top team makes you the dope. Lets be honest until someone beats Mcdonogh they are the best, but what we know for sure is that it will not be a team from NJ this year. Send a team or shut up

Westwood doesn't have a coach and will is not the top team this year. And the mass people are arguing that the 2019s and the 2020s are top teams in their age group which is accurate

Not only am I NOT a Y.J. parent, I don't even have a daughter attending the event. I just think it will put the truly best H.S. teams in one tournament. I personally don't see why you would even bring up the Yellow Jackets. First N.P. isn't invited, second C.R. has no vested interest in this event, and lastly one of the main competitors is Manhasset/ liberty a team she hates (and where my daughter plays) so whats your point with that? I state again just because your coaches/ school didn't have the foresight to send a team does not delegitimize the event, it just means your out this year and you have to deal with that. Personally I hope the event is a huge success, and that next year it happens either very late in the spring so that the seniors of that year can play, or late in the summer so that it csn happen on full fields. either way it comes down to the best players on the best teams playing against each other



Okay, no worries mate. But, you have to admit that winning a meaningless 7v7 indoor "national championship" is something that would be important to a typical yj parent.

I think Manhasset has turned into one of the perennial high school powerhouses coached by one of the best coaches in the business, Northport not so much, Carol Rose is excellent at spotting talent that other people cultivate, but can cultivate none of her own. Every now and then an exceptional player happens to develop within N.P. despite Carol Rose. Though I think she is a painfully average coach, she is an exceptional business woman. She has all of you Yellow Jacket parents duped into thinking that somehow without her your daughter will not be recruited, when in reality if you were smart enough to think beyond your own need to better than the Jonses, you would be knocking down D.G's door for your daughter to be taught by the best coach. So, though you may get to say that your daughter plays for the best club on the 3rd, 4th, or 5th team, coached by a parent that never played the game while Carol is too busy directing her empire from a far to wory about coaching your daughter, my daughter is being coached by one of the most successful H.S. coaches that was also a D1 coach, and one of the best woman players to ever play the game, and believe me, she does coach every one of hazave made a Y.J team, heck everyone that tries out makes a Y.J. team, My daughter wanted to be coached by the best, thats why she chose Liberty.

Nice tournament and good idea, but clearly not a national championship. It is indoor and not all top teams are playing (see Summit, Ridgewood, others). Still a good idea.
ok, serious? because Jersey teams arent there? They took the final rankings from the 2016 season and invited all those teams to bring there best players to a tournament close to Jersey. If the schools, coaches or players decided not to attend thats a forfeit of there ranking spot. It seems to me the organizers allowed those teams that gave up, or couldn't find enough commited players to then take players from other schools to fill in rosters. And lets be frank about this, it's not like the N.J. teams are really going to beat the likes of Mc Donogh, Manhasset, or Garden City. Walton (Ga.) St Anthony's (NY) and Westwood (Mass) are also no going but that is on each school so because your region doesn't send a team doesn't make it "not real" the only thing "not real" is your reigons commitment to finding out who is the best. I mean look at Mass. elite complaining how they should be considered top 5 club but not sending there only top ranked team to this event to prove it. And Mass parents , don't complain about the distance, Novato California is sending a team. Most of the top H.S. teams are sending teams if yours isn't you don't get to complain you should have sent a team. This silly sentament that its only 7v7 is also ridicules wether you put your best 12 or best 7 on the field makes little difference you still play your best so in the end it my best against your best. These girls are top athletes and will play to win, this should be fun


Westwood doesn't have a coach and will is not the top team this year. And the mass people are arguing that the 2019s and the 2020s are top teams in their age group which is accurate
this post proves that Mass elite is not a top 5 club

If this program is so great why are they struggling to fill rosters on B teams? Also, how is it possible for one person to coach all these teams? Sorry but not buying what you are saying. Quickly looking at their commits, I would also say not very impressive and the caliber of schools is dropping.

Since when did the choice of schools that a young player makes determine the "quality" of a club lax program? The reasons a player chooses a school could go well beyond just lacrosse. Did you ever think about that? Your comment sounds like something a yj parent would say, where your whole meager being is determined by which college your little bee goes to. Your opinion on which school another kid chooses is irrelevant. So go back to the hive and tell the queen bee what you learned today. Jeez...you people are mentally hilarious.

Honestly commit list is a joke compared to other top programs. Not trying to be negative, just real. Number of kids in each class to top academic schools and lacrosse programs is small compared to other programs. Agree DG is a great coach and also agree she has a great connection with UPenn coach as both went to William & Mary and the girls who have gone/are going to UPenn are top notch.

You were doing such a good job and then you took the bait and showed just how ignorant you are. You assume its YJ parents going after you when in reality you have no idea. Here is where you fall short, first the tournament you are hyping made the mistake of letting in all star teams, so essentially has become another pseudo travel/all star teams and teams made up of only actual high school teams have little chance. If DG is such a great coach and the YJ coaching is so horrible then why do the YJ teams consistently beat Liberty.The only explanation is the level of talent on those hideous liberty teams must be the equivalent of lower level travel teams, not saying a lot about the liberty players.

Its one of the bottom 5 D1 lax schools out there but it is D1 and if you play club lacrosse parents feel their kid must get an athletic offer regardless of where it is and how bad the lax and education is. If this is the best you are offered go D3

Re: Girls High School Lax - 01/02/17 03:31 PM

I hate your line about "if this is the best you are offered go D3". Who the [lacrosse] cares what "best" means to a kid, especially one that isn't yours? From a yj perspective, LIU-Brooklyn is below their pompous standards. But, for someone else that's a normal person, LIU_Brooklyn may be just the right fit. Comments like yours remind me of B Altig, the director (definitely NOT a coach) of Md United. She basically kicked girls from some of her teams because they WANTED to play at a D3 school because they LIKED THE SCHOOL. By the way, they went to a neighboring club, went to their D3 school of choice, had good careers and at least one of them graduated with a prestigious degree and the leading scorer record (or close to it). If more of you "people" would change your priorities about where kids choose to play college lax we'd all be happier.

The McDonough coached organized the UA150 Showcase which was supposed to have been played that weekend at the Spooky Nook facility but due to the changes made to the Recruiting Calendar last spring he was stuck with the deposit/down payment as no D1 college coaches were allowed to attend the showcase. So to recoup his money he created the 7v7 tournament. Brilliant.

ok lets get this straight, I never said Liberty was a top team, nor do I think they are the top club. but since you stuck your head up I will tell you what I do think. I think Manhasset has turned into one of the perennial high school powerhouses coached by one of the best coaches in the business, Northport not so much, Carol Rose is excellent at spotting talent that other people cultivate, but can cultivate none of her own. Every now and then an exceptional player happens to develop within N.P. despite Carol Rose. Though I think she is a painfully average coach, she is an exceptional business woman. She has all of you Yellow Jacket parents duped into thinking that somehow without her your daughter will not be recruited, when in reality if you were smart enough to think beyond your own need to better than the Jonses, you would be knocking down D.G's door for your daughter to be taught by the best coach. So, though you may get to say that your daughter plays for the best club on the 3rd, 4th, or 5th team, coached by a parent that never played the game while Carol is too busy directing her empire from a far to wory about coaching your daughter, my daughter is being coached by one of the most successful H.S. coaches that was also a D1 coach, and one of the best woman players to ever play the game, and believe me, she does coach every one of hazave made a Y.J team, heck everyone that tries out makes a Y.J. team, My daughter wanted to be coached by the best, thats why she chose Liberty.


If this program is so great why are they struggling to fill rosters on B teams? Also, how is it possible for one person to coach all these teams? Sorry but not buying what you are saying. Quickly looking at their commits, I would also say not very impressive and the caliber of schools is dropping.
Seing as you are obviesoly a flaming idiot I will slow it down for you. she only practices 2 age groups at a time so that she can take an active role in all teams along with each teams mail coaches, she attends every practice unless her H.S team is at states, something C.R. does not have to worry about. when she says that she is holding a clinic it is D.G on the field coaching , not some daddy or flunky doing it under her name, I can't believe for a second that a dolt like you has any Idea IF she is having a hard time doing anything because you obviesoly ars carring the Y.J. line. Your right, having kids commit to Penn Marquette USC Cornell is a real dip in college selection you dolt


You were doing such a good job and then you took the bait and showed just how ignorant you are. You assume its YJ parents going after you when in reality you have no idea. Here is where you fall short, first the tournament you are hyping made the mistake of letting in all star teams, so essentially has become another pseudo travel/all star teams and teams made up of only actual high school teams have little chance. If DG is such a great coach and the YJ coaching is so horrible then why do the YJ teams consistently beat Liberty.The only explanation is the level of talent on those hideous liberty teams must be the equivalent of lower level travel teams, not saying a lot about the liberty players.
we were talking about high school teams it is only YJ parents that divert the conversation. Taking sold HSBC teams into consideration you truly see who the better coach is, by your own words DG is able to take a team of horrible players (seeing as most set players also play Liberty) and coach those girls into the county, island and state tourney year after year, where as CR and NP can't seem to garner the same type of respect or success . The only reason I could conceive for this is because even though, according to you, CR has better players and 'set players aren't nearly as good, CR is not a good coach, or at least not as good as DG. Who has a lot more success with "horrible players"

DG only really takes care of her set girls when it comes to college. She could be the biggest whiner(baby)yelling at refs in HS and Club when she doesn't get the call her way. Just because she was supposedly a good player 30 years ago doesn't make you a good coach. When she was playing basically no one played the game. Her program is mediocre at best. Glad your daughter is one of the set chosen few. Many people have seen her act multiple times and it's pathetic.

My daughter played for DG, is committed to an excellent school, got great athletic money, and we're not from Manhasset. That's such a bunch of bs. Guess your facts are exactly accurate. As far as yelling at the refs, I've seen it happen but it's not often and usually because a player is at risk of being injured due to bad/non call. Have you seen some of the other LI club director's behavior at tournaments and hs games? There are some who are real nasty characters to say the least.

Tournament is a waste for full teams. Most HS teams are 25-30 players, to go play a 7v7 is not fun if you are the coach. These indoor tournaments are best fit for little throw together teams where you can bring one or two subs. My daughters HS and Travel team does these indoor leagues, what a waste of time and money. 20 something girls show up to split time for a 1 hour game, actually less, think it is 2 25 min halfs. Coaches would be better only invite half the team every other week to at least make it worth the trip. So again this indoor 7v7 stuff is just not a good option for a full outdoor teams and really doesn't showcase the "team" very accurate.

This tournament is just another event to deepen the roster divides on most teams. Lots of coaches left the bottom of their roster home so they could play their studs. That's the problem with todays game its not about the team anymore until you get to college. All about me and the cash

Re: Girls High School Lax - 01/09/17 10:59 AM

what college teams are you referring too. Look at the stats of any college program and you have your starters and a few kids off the bench who get the majority of the playing time. Then you have the other half of the team with little to no playing time. That's sports, coaches want to win, So stop fooling yourself, It doesn't change in college.

That's unfortunate if your coach did that. Rosters for schools are smaller this time of the year since the 16s gave graduated and the freshmen haven't yet tried out . My daughters team brought everyone who wanted to go which was just about everyone.

Actually quite a few teams had 15 to 20 girls at this tournament. Based on the format a longer bench helped. With only two draws the whole game it was non stop fast breaks. There were so many scores in the mid to high 20's per team. If you showed up with 2 to 3 subs you struggled.

Also, if you were a team that graduated a lot of seniors and had a light junior class you might struggle to get a large number of girls. Not all the teams were coached by their HS coach so JV and incoming freshman may not have been invited because they are not known as well as the older girls. Just a thought

This is perfect...again, you know who coached this past weekend and they have responded in the previous post. Hopefully you will be at the meeting tomorrow night and this topic can be put to rest and the girls can look forward to spring season.

Then we don't have to post on BOC how terrible the team is. The expectations for this spring are obviously very low based upon your assessments. They are a JV team, no chemistry and certainly some no talent handpicked "bombs"...way to insult a fine group of young ladies.

Plainedge advertised that they needed a HC why wasn't it given to her if she works in the district? Plainedge has never had the success of Wantagh.

You people are pathetic. A parent tries to do something to help the program while there is a vacancy at the coaching position. I am sure you knew about this event prior to it occurring so if you had a problem you easily could have reached out to those "filling in" as coaches and expressed your concerns. Instead you come onto this site anonymously to bash the kids that played, the parents that gave their time, and just be a horrible example to your kids about how to handle things as an adult. You are the prime example of why people never want to get involved as volunteers in anything, its just not worth dealing with the drama queens.

Wrong the Parents that gave their time didn't "care" about those girls. He picked and chose who he wanted to from his "inner circle". He never gave all of the girls the option to play over the weekend - girls who were on the varsity team the prior year. Instead he took an 8th grader who he's friends with the family. And then he short changed those girls because there wasn't enough players. You (and yes we know who you are) did a disservice to these girls (that other towns are bashing as no talent) when they are a talented group and aren't selfish players. They haven't had a chance to prove themselves because of prior pathetic coaching. And shame on the Athletic Director who is useless for allowing it. Hopefully this new coach has the balls to tell you parents to sit down and shut up and let him coach.

Perfect example of the cowardly poster. Seems you have an issue with every coach and its no wonder as you decide to just anonymously bash them instead of being an adult and having a conversation with them. You are clearly one of those disgusting parents who do nothing to help build a program and just complain about those who do.

Why would you even entertain this moron !!! Obviously they have serious issues and they probably discuss this at the dinner table. I feel bad for the kid. What these parents did for the off season after being left high and dry by their Coach is a great thing. Wantagh was and always will be right there in the end. If they're the underdog, even better.

Re: Girls High School Lax - 01/11/17 01:44 PM

Other LI teams went 1-2 in last weekend's tournament… Wantagh is the only community that is up in arms over the performance and still chirping about it 3 days later. It's too bad Wantagh's lax community isn't rallying around the girls that are still on the team from last year and building up the ones that are coming up … rather than embarrassing each other and discouraging others. Every school has a down year(s), the key to success is to re-build and compete, not denigrate each other. Good luck to all of the girls this year!

Re: Girls High School Lax - 01/13/17 12:37 AM

Here's just a little info on the whole early recruiting process.
My 2016 daughter was fairly highly recruited: 8 schools from Hofstra in the north to University of Florida in the south. She committed to a D1 during the summer after sophomore year. She was very excited about her choice and so were we. She moved into school in early September last year and all was going well...fall ball, school, etc. Played very well and started some of the games during fall. All of a sudden,yesterday she informs me that she does not want to go back. I asked how long she's felt this way and she said since she moved. Wow! So, she called her coach yesterday and went and visited with her today. The coach told her that she was a big part of the teams upcoming season and hated to lose her. They talked for several hours, and some of the upper classmen talked to her, all to no avail. In the end she chose to leave and signed her release paperwork. Now she's on her way back home. Here's what I thought: That my daughter would never do this. She's very responsible, great student, takes care of her business, works hard, etc. She loves working out and didn't think the practices were too hard. She ran her mile run test in 6:15. She has lots of friends and got along with her room mate very well. But, ultimately, she didn't "feel right" at the school. Just "off". She's going to go the local community college, which is always highly ranked, and play there and hopefully continue at another 4-year school that is more for her. Her former team treated her wonderfully, she loved the coaches, liked the school. It just didn't work. So, my advice to any parents and players is to choose your school wisely. Talk about all of the negatives as much as the positives. Talk about the "what ifs". And, most of all communicate a lot. Good luck to all going through the process now. It can be exciting, pressure packed and fun all at the same time. And, do not discount a D2 or D3 school. It's not all about D1. Good Luck to all.

It happens a lot. It's the biggest decision they must make in their life up to that point. Unfortunately they are making these decisions way to young with the early recruitment. Definitely no guarantees. Thanks for that story and I'm sure she'll be fine. This story will get you thinking too.

You're welcome. I've been involved with the game for a long time, and my kids situation is not unique. But, there are lots of people who don't want to think it will be their kid. I didn't think it would be my kid. She was 1st team all-county on two different lists. Great/very good player. But, somewhere along the way her feelings about the school she chose changed. Only she knows what it is. And yes, I think she will be fine, at school and on the field. Now, just gotta find the next place. This time she'll probably make a better choice for her.

Good info. Thanks for sharing. Our daughter committed this summer as an in coming HS Soph . I like her choice of school but I still worry about it as things can change with 3 mores years of HS ahead of her. They are still kids.

We have club friends in 8th and 9th grade begging to verbal. The same kids carrying a low grades in school. That never took a regents or the SAT and frankly are too immature just like my kid to make this big decision but the parents keep pushing these little kids to take the plunge. They aren't studs. They aren't picking the best of schools but they are picking. What's the rush?

Fortunately or unfortunately, depending what side you're on, until you sign that paper,you can always decommit. It happens more today than ever because of early commits. If she were to kill it this year and next you'd be surprised to see how many schools would try to contact her and "find " money to make it happen. Times have changed, and this early recruiting goes both ways. At that point the only thing that matters is your daughter and her future. The other thing is, the way this business is today you're lucky if the Head Coach is still there 3 or 4 years from now.

That is great advice! Your daughter is not the only one! I have a son in a similar situation with basically the same story. Top recruit, starting on a top D1 program, but just isn't happy. People need to be careful what they wish for!

Thank you, and that is why I put it out there. First, I would hope that a family in the middle of the recruiting process would read and heed at least a little of the info. Agree with your last sentence: Be careful what you wish for. Second, I know that this is partly due to the early recruiting trend. I'm not going to say all of our situation is due to early recruiting, but some of it has to be. She started to be recruited during the summer after her freshman year. It was almost non-stop for a year and I think it started to wear on her. She visited eight schools, but once she started getting offers, I think she felt pressure to go SOMEWHERE. So, like I mentioned above, ask the hard questions of your kid. Talk about the "what ifs". Have a Plan B. She's a smart kid, and I know academically she'll be fine. And,she still wants to play somewhere, which makes ol' dad happy (we spent a lot of money over the years) LOL.

This happens with athletes and non-athletes. Kids change schools all the time, As with just about everything else in life it is a learning experience. View it as a positive. I am very happy for your daughter as she appears to have the courage to evaluate, make a decision and take action. Those traits will serve her well in life. The smartest people and the best leaders are the ones who are willing to adjust their sails and change course when necessary. Some say that only the strong survive and that it is survival of the fittest when in reality it is the one who is willing to change and adapt that will not only survive but thrive. It is less about your current situation or what has happened to you that impacts your future, it is all about the decisions you make and the action you take moving forward that will define who you are.

All the best to your daughter, please tell he to make her own way in the world. As we all know it is not a sprint and their will be plenty of bumps and curves in the road. She has a bright future with unlimited potential and opportunity.

That holds true for your son as well. It holds true for all of our kids.

I am watching many of the very early commits from the last few years get bypassed by others on their own team. That is a risk and fear of Coaches going all in on girls in 8th or used to be 9th grade. Could it be the girls lose the drive and focus in the later HS years that are seemingly meaningless once they commit? Or some just peaked early? The girls at the current recruiting age, look at a group at the same playing level, some are completely maxed out on potential, some are just getting going. How are the coaches to know? Some studs remain studs and stay ahead, some seem to be flatlining.

Re: Girls High School Lax - 01/17/17 02:47 PM

8th and 9th grade girls haven't taken a regents or an SAT yet. Most of the early commits we know aren't great students either. They are picking schools without knowing what they want to study in school. I guess when they get closer they will see what majors the school offers. I think its safe to say any 8th grader that picks a college is picking the college for lacrosse reasons *** but most they are picking some big name good schools that they wouldn't haven't gotten in to without lax so I guess that's the point right??.

How on earth would you know if the girls "aren't great students"? Do you know each of them personally so you can make such a blanket statement?

I see kids like yours get passed by on the lacrosse field and in the classroom all the time. You said it yourself she works hard so my guess not really naturally gifted in either area the next thing you know the naturally gifted kids turn it up a notch and your kid gets run over by the train.You really are a nonsense regurgitating loser.

Why so bitter? Ever think you are why lacrosse has the worst sidelines in sport? Ever think comments like this make it impossible for the rest of us to root for your kid? I hope she is a great player but don't throw shat at everyone else. Stay humble my friend its over before you know it

What a loser [lacrosse]. You don't get it, do you? My educated guess is that you're a yj puke, whose whole ego is wrapped up in the success or failure of your kid. I'll tell you what I've seen over my lifetime, in football and lacrosse...Athletically gifted kids blowing past less-gifted kids at an early age. BUT, in the early teens, kids like yours become burned out by pushy, douchey, asshat parents like you and they slowly lose interest which impacts their performance on the field. Unfortunately, they're too ashamed to say anything to you because you'll flip out and all of LI will hear you berate your little bee. Then, bah-do-boom,, bah-da-bing...the hard working kids, who still enjoy playing, have now caught and PASSED your burned-out kid. It happens all the time, every year, every sport. The next thing ya know, your kid is playing club at Easystreet U, and you're trying to apologize to your asshat "friends" and cr why your little bee "chose" to play club. It's gonna happen. Better get those grades up and be prepared.

It's comical what a loser you are.,Yes that US team vs Florida was full of those burned out YJ players you speak of while your hard working kid is hoping that her hard work gets her D2 coach to notice her . LOSER

Why so bitter? Ever think you are why lacrosse has the worst sidelines in sport? Ever think comments like this make it impossible for the rest of us to root for your kid? I hope she is a great player but don't throw shat at everyone else. Stay humble my friend its over before you know it [/quote]

YJ parents never think its them, and if they did, they don't care anyway.

Have to be honest, I just came across this conversation. But your response is kind of douchey as well. Not as much as the OP, but douchey. You're hinting that D2 is a joke.

You cannot change the minds of crazy parent living thru their remarkable student athlete. Any sane person knows there are many great opportunities to play lacrosse at D1, D2 and or D3. All have top, middle and lower levels or athletics and or academics. It's nuts how the crazies [lacrosse] all over any school not an Ivy and or a top D1 lax team. Again, no post will change their minds. It's part of what makes them crazy. To the parents new to the recruiting process, figure out what school your daughter is interested in and go visit. Good luck and have fun with it. It should not be grueling as some make it out to be.

You are right but after reading this thread every kid on here is going to a top 5 lax school or ivy. Give me a break! Way more kids going to Quinnipiac or Fairfield or Wagner then top 5

or davidson richmond vandy georgetown virginia BC michigan william and Mary colgate lehigh Cal ... etc ... There are so many great academic schools that play D1 that aren't top 5 lax or an ivy ... you people always reduce it to that. Once again, it comes down to grades. Now if ur kid doesn't have them, D2 is a great fit.

For the 1st timers who verbal early, although most verbals hold, with the insane amount of coaching movement here is an article about UConn football that broke today-

Randy Edsall was hired as UConn’s head coach on Dec. 28. (AP Photo/Jessica Hill) Recruiting can be a shrewd business.
Ryan Dickens thought he had his college decision wrapped up. The linebacker from Raritan High School in New Jersey committed to UConn back in June and was ready to sign with the Huskies in a few weeks, but found out Sunday night that the school no longer had a spot for him in its 2017 recruiting class.

Dickens was offered by Bob Diaco and UConn’s previous coaching staff. But Diaco was fired in late December and the school brought in Randy Edsall, who led the program from 1999-2010 before bolting for Maryland (where he was fired in 2015).

Dickens told NJ.com he received a phone call from Edsall on Sunday night. Edsall delivered bad news they would not honor the scholarship offered.

You cannot be serious about checking credentials on a generally anonymous forum.

How about when he gave up home field advantage in a playoff game in order to play on a turf field? And guess what, BBP lost to the team whose home field was turf.

Pretty sure home-field advantage crosses all sports. It's not a concept unique to lacrosse.

Who cares? Let them stay together. Don't you want your daughter to compete against strong teams? The league week (all of the HS leagues are weak). At least in Nassau they have the Power Conference. In Suffolk A teams can win 10 games in their sleep if they have a few girls who can pass and catch.
I would like to see The Sachems's and Smithtown's combine again Maybe even allow Ward Melville to absorb Port Jeff and Mount Sinai so they could compete as well.

How about he brought a dream team stacked with talent to the county finals and lost? Again. Made almost zero in game adjustments. Maybe he does a great job at practice and is good with the kids but he should stay off the sidelines. He was out of his league playing against AB and it showed.

What a stupid statement. It is HS sports you represent you school. If circumstances warrant a merger due to lack of participation you merge or fold the program. You don't build a super team.

You want a power conference fine I get it but the one team is BS. Some may say upstate does it to. Yeah some are like regional schools. But MIddle country and Lakeland/Panas is a joke. You have two separate facilities and the participation.

How about when he gave up home field advantage in a playoff game in order to play on a turf field? And guess what, BBP lost to the team whose home field was turf.


How about he brought a dream team stacked with talent to the county finals and lost? Again. Made almost zero in game adjustments. Maybe he does a great job at practice and is good with the kids but he should stay off the sidelines. He was out of his league playing against AB and it showed.

"Dream Team"??? I guess your a disgruntled parent. There was 1 stud and some other talent. Stop with the Dream Team stuff


The stud carded herself out of the game. Not sure if the coach coached on that one or not. But his strategies always seem to have the parts add up to less than the whole.

Our coach won't even force the primadonas to pass at our weekend practices. Get ready for another season of 3 good girls and the rest of the team recruited from gym class. When will these coaches learn?

that's unfortunate. seriously. I do have a question. if that's the case why stay on the team? if you are the player, do something else. if this is a parent posting , why would you make your child stay on team? seems like you are resigned to endure a pretty lousy situation. why?

We have been living it for years with this sport in school. Parents hijack the booster clubs for access. Coaches want to run it like the summer circuit but when you don't have the players you have to change the strategy. Its groundhog day all over again. It can start with just a simple pass of the ball. NObody wants to share they all want to be in Newspaper

I agree whole heartedly. Parents are terrible. Can almost guarantee post came from disgruntled parent. Go to goal mentality cost them when they played a good defense. Saw them at winter and the game I saw looks like nothing much changed. 3rd place may be in the cards. Parents will be shocked when they get to college and realize little Suzy can't get the job done. Hope they get to keep the scholarship for all 4 years.

It's social/school thing for 75% of the team that will never play beyond HS. It is a cut throat get your name in the paper sport for those who have committed and are still trying to pad their college BIO Page. That's the disconnect

Wow, you really don't get it, do you? Did you ever compete at anything? I guess in you view everybody should get a trophy, everyone should have a chance to be the quarter back, everyone should take turns pitching and everyone should have a chance to win the 100 meter race.

I don't think that at all. I do think that lacrosse is a team game. Girls shouldn't be trying to run the ball up when teammates are open ahead of them. I don't think girls should be trying to dodge through 3-4 defenders when teammates are open and in better shooting position. I don't think 2 or 3 girls should be a team's entire offense - share the ball - good things will happen.

Congratulations dad. It sounds like your daughter is the ONE on our team that will play in college. She is surrounded by some other pretty good athletes the award winning volleyball, basketball and soccer players. They are above average in any sport they play. Just because they don't go down to Maryland everyone weekend over the summer doesn't mean they cant play lax. So tell your kid to pass the ball because with your kid scoring 100 goals we still will only be 500 as a team

What town do you live in? What type of awards are these athletes receiving? It doesn't appear as though any of the teams would be very competitive if the girls only play the sport in-season. In our town, the best volleyball, basketball, and soccer players are playing year round and they travel as much if not more than the best lacrosse players.

Maybe HS sports have passed me by. Maybe now they are simply about everyone having a chance to play and be a part of the team. Now that I think about it I guess that is why High School sports now play second fiddle to the club teams. AAU Basketball, Travel Soccer, Club Volleyball, Travel Lacrosse etc... are all much more competitive than their HS counterparts. College Coaches do just about all of their recruiting on the AAU/Travel Circuit because that is where the top talent is.

The next thing you know they will stop keeping score at HS sporting events. Maybe they should take away the Cages, Baskets, Nets, Goals, Finish lines ect... Just have one big play date and let all of the girls participate. While we are at it lets get rid of the AP and Honors Classes as well and give everybody a C.

By the way, Who do you want this so called Ball Hog to pass the ball to? Oh thats right, your daughter. Why is that? Oh yeah, so she can be the one to score the goal.

I'd explain to you but it's been explained above and you are clearly too dense to comprehend. IF that's how you think it is, then I suspect you are one of those "pad the stats" parents who encourages his kid to run up her goals against weak teams. I can assure you that is not helping your daughter make friends, not is it helping you. It's a team sport, bucko. Any coach worth his or her salt can outcoach a one-stud team so it makes zero sense to run all plays through one player. Besides the out-coaching scenario, there's the injury situation: stud gets hurt and then what? A wise coach develops the entire team so he/she doesn't screw him/herself or the team. It's about depth, not about superstars or padded stats. You must be too shortsighted or close minded to realize that.

Wow these ball hogs must be incredible, hopefully I will have a chance to watch one of them play some day.

It must be pretty amazing to watch one girl take the draw, get the ball, sprint down the field and score a goal 100 times per season. And what smart coaching to recognize such a talent, imagine how poorly the team would do if they didn't have such a great player.

The helmets are approved for use. Its not mandated yet in NY State. I think it is left to the discretion of each section or School at this time.

Any and all teams who do not wear helmets should refuse to play teams who are wearing helmets. No way in [lacrosse] would I step on the field to play against them, and it's not right that a coach or AD makes that descision for my daughter. I don't have a problem with the idea of girls wearing helmets, but it has to be all the girls from both teams wearing them or nobody wears them. It puts extreme risk on the girls and is a lawsuit waiting to happen. If my daughter gets put in that position and gets hurt, I will Certainly be looking into the lawsuit.

You are just completely wrong, yes you want to develop the whole team but the best teams have kids that are role players and unfortunately parents like you refuse to accept their childs role unless its a goal scorer. Do you think every kid should do the draw or play goal, than why do you think every kid should be a shooter or a dodger. The best coaches put kids in positions to be successful.Look at successful college teams they have multiple scorers but most run their offense thru 2 or 3 key players 90 percent of the time.

The only player allowed to wear a helmet on a girls Lacrosse field is the goalie. Soft head gear has been approved by USlacrosse for many years it is optional. the only State making it mandatory is Florida for HS girls lacrosse.

Do you mean that the only player "required" to wear a helmet is the goalie?
Or are you saying that field players can not wear helmets even if they wanted to?

Correct. Sore head gear is a field players only option. I am a Girls official it is cut and dry, no gray area. Also the only player with a helmet happens to be the most concussed player in women's lacrosse. Helmets do not prevent concussions .

Then move to the progressive foul system throwing out hackers after 3,4,5 fouls like basketball. Ref your thoughts? Seems many are afraid to go to yellows and reds. The progressive system gets them out without the cards

There is not an Offical on Long Island that would allow a game to be played with field players wearing helmets. Soft head gear approved by us lacrosse yes. Helmets no. Look it up in the rule book you can download it from uslax web site

The only player allowed to wear a helmet on a girls Lacrosse field is the goalie. Soft head gear has been approved by USlacrosse for many years it is optional. the only State making it mandatory is Florida for HS girls lacrosse.


Do you mean that the only player "required" to wear a helmet is the goalie?
Or are you saying that field players can not wear helmets even if they wanted to?


Correct. Sore head gear is a field players only option. I am a Girls official it is cut and dry, no gray area. Also the only player with a helmet happens to be the most concussed player in women's lacrosse. Helmets do not prevent concussions .


Thank you very much, any idea where it states that in writing? I agree with a previous poster, would not want to play opponents with helmets


Then move to the progressive foul system throwing out hackers after 3,4,5 fouls like basketball. Ref your thoughts? Seems many are afraid to go to yellows and reds. The progressive system gets them out without the cards



Bad idea. You will have more offensive players charging into defenders trying to draw fouls and have defenders accumulate fouls. defenders will rack up fouls and be disqualified. The game is skewed to the offense already. In some games it is impossible for defenders to play defense due to terrible officiating. Officials do not call offensive charges and consistently bail out offensive players who run into double/triple teams with free position calls. Would like to see the rules enforced correctly and incorporate 1-2 min man-up penalties for major safety fouls outside the 8 meter

I believe you are using the wrong term for what they are purchasing. Helmets are illegal for field players for women's lacrosse period end of story. If they are purchasing soft headgear and they choose to wear it so be it but by no means is it mandatory to wear it and I know my daughter would never wear it if she played for that school district. Soft headgear should be a personal choice not forced on the athletes.

The safety calls aren't being made frequently or consistently enough (at least on LI) which has coaches and kids pushing the envelope and its really becoming dangerous. It doesn't help that the LI club scene silently condones the rough play all summer. If we don't go to progressive fouls or stricter officiating HELMETS ARE COMING.

No I was told by a school official they are purchasing the cascade helmets.

Helmets are a terrible idea. Let the girls play and stop crying about every time someone touches you!

Ok... so how will helmets help. You just confirmed the point that officiating is terrible...so how will helmets change that. In fact helmets will make bad officiating worse since hits to head will now be called less frequently and offensive players will use helmets to their advantage. Bad idea...bad policy.

Cascade rounds up all the HS Superintendents on Long island and says "make the game safer buy our head gear" Sups all they hear is oh it will make game safer...Big Money Grab for Cascade with the disclaimer by them that it does not prevent concussions. Total Scam
Then it will trickle down to all the club teams: more $$ for them
Soccer players, where there are so many more instances of concussions dont have to wear head gear! Crazy

Is that what Mt. Sinai bought? Helmet With the goggles/face mask built in? So your saying the refs will not allow these teams to wear the gear they just purchased? Section 11, the refs and all the AD's better get this figured out before the seasons starts. Sounds like it is going to be a big mess.

We live in a litigious society. Why do they keep messing with the football rules? Because of lawsuits. TERRIBLE OFFICIATING in girls lax is going to lead us to helmets. The rules are not properly enforced I think we can all agree on that. And since they aren't enforced, the players and coaches keep pushing the boundries

Re: Girls High School Lax - 02/09/17 04:09 PM

I have to think there are more concussions in other sports like soccer and field hockey - maybe even basketball. Don't see why people feel helmets are needed. It will cause the pley to get even more physical which will hurt the sport. I have been around the sport for about 12 years at the youth level, high school level and college level and I can't recall more than a handfull of concussions over that time period. Best bet is to call the game tighter.

If Levittown attempts to field a girls team wearing helmets the game will not be played until they are removed. Helmets are illegal in woman's lacrosse. Only the goalie is permitted to wear a helmet. Soft head gear or goggles are the only thing the girls are permitted to wear.Here is what is on US Lacrosse web site.
Women's Lacrosse Headgear FAQs
Points of Emphasis
The use of headgear is optional in girls' and women's lacrosse.
Any headgear used after January 1, 2017 must meet the ASTM standard, F3137.
The ASTM standard, F3137, is a performance standard, not a design standard.
Product designs will likely vary from one manufacturer to another.
Products must provide full coverage of the head.
Products must be worn with required ASTM women’s lacrosse eyewear.
There must be marking on both the packaging and product that states that the headgear conforms to ASTM standard F3137.
What does the standard mean?
The ASTM standard is the first-ever performance standard for women’s lacrosse headgear, developed to help reduce impact forces associated with stick and ball contact in women’s lacrosse.
Will the new headgear prevent concussions?
The headgear standard was developed to decrease ball- and stick-to-head impact force. No headgear or helmet in any sport has been proven to prevent concussions.
Is the use of headgear required?
No. Headgear remains optional in the US Lacrosse Youth Rule Book and in the USL/NFHS Rule Book.
When will this headgear be available?
Headgear products have begun to be available in the marketplace, as of September 2016. US Lacrosse has created an online listing for headgear models that have submitted a passing report in compliance with ASTM standard F3137.
Will the new headgear be soft?
ASTM standard F3137 is not a soft headgear standard and the standard itself makes no mention of the word "soft." However, the testing protocol does require that the product meets a certain flexibility to insure that players who are wearing the product do not injure those who are not.
How much will the new headgear products cost?
Products vary in cost and design. Please contact the headgear manufacturers for more information.
What will the headgear look like?
The ASTM standard requires the headgear to fully cover the head, thus precluding the use of head band type products currently used by some players. All headgear must be worn with required eyewear, and some headgear models have integrated eyewear. The standard has two options, allowing manufacturers to make their headgear with eyewear implemented or a product that is compatible with various eyewear products currently on the market.

The cascade helmet is soft head gear. It looks like a traditional rigid helmet but it is completely flexible, outside of the goggles.

Re: Girls High School Lax - 02/09/17 04:58 PM

Levittown bought helmets for the girls and a few parents that know the rules will protest with the girls, the AD took it upon himself without asking anyone for input. He did no research. I certainly hope officials do not allow it. The AD can be an obnoxious bully, would love to see this backfire on him. Sat next to him at a game last year and he was clueless as to how the game is played. Both my son and daughter play and both agree it's ridiculous

Spot on! Could you imagine soccer players wearing helmets?? Ridiculous to force these girls to wear helmets under the disguise of making them safer. Money grab for Cascade is right! They are ugly as they are useless

Its the stick swinging not the concussions. Everyone gasps a few times a game watching some girl get whacked. Happens every game. People are scared of the lawsuits. This is the nanny state protestors want.

Then do not call it a helmet it is called soft head gear. a helmet implies what a goalie is wearing there is a big difference between the two. US Lacrosse writes the rules that NYS adopts for HS Sports. Every official goes by the US Lacrosse rule book period. NYS has not mandated soft head gear for HS Girls Lacrosse for 2017.

I think you are the only one that is getting worked up with the term helmet. Most of us know when the term helmet is used people are referring to the new girls lacrosse "helmet." It is a helmet....

Let's rephrase this.......

Any and all teams who do not wear helmets HARD OR SOFT, should refuse to play teams who are wearing helmets HARD OR SOFT. No way in [lacrosse] would I step on the field to play against them, and it's not right that a coach or AD makes that descision for my daughter. I don't have a problem with the idea of girls wearing helmets HARD OR SOFT, but it has to be all the girls from both teams wearing them or nobody wears them. It puts extreme risk on the girls and is a lawsuit waiting to happen. If my daughter gets put in that position and gets hurt, I will Certainly be looking into the lawsuit.

Yeah, so?? How does playing a team in helmets make it more dangerous for girls who are not wearing them? The rules are still the same.

Cmon really. Helmets will allow offensive players to charge into defenders even more than they do now. Any equipment that 1 team has that another doesn't is an advantage. The helmet thing is a total money grab by the manufacturer. I'm still wondering the purpose of using a helmet.

I don't have a problem with the idea of girls wearing helmets HARD OR SOFT, but it has to be all the girls from both teams wearing them or nobody wears them. It puts extreme risk on the girls and is a lawsuit waiting to happen. If my daughter gets put in that position and gets hurt, I will Certainly be looking into the lawsuit.


"looking into a lawsuit" its people like you that are forcing helmets what a tool


You would be the tool to let your daughter play against the team that showed up all wearing helmets.


Yeah, so?? How does playing a team in helmets make it more dangerous for girls who are not wearing them? The rules are still the same.



Cmon really. Helmets will allow offensive players to charge into defenders even more than they do now. Any equipment that 1 team has that another doesn't is an advantage. The helmet thing is a total money grab by the manufacturer. I'm still wondering the purpose of using a helmet.


How exactly does a lacrosse player charge head first?

OK this person can't be that dumb? If one person is wearing head protection and is in any way in a situation where there might be contact to the head, that person is less likly to to take a defensive act because they feel protected, and will take a more aggressive approach. A person not wearing a helmet will be naturally afraid of an injury and try to protect themselves. To say the rules are still the rules is ignorent at best. Two girls going for a ball are more likely to bump heads, or take an elbow to the head, or trip and fall and maybe smack their head on the ground, non of which is governed by a rule. A girl with a helmet will no longer have that fear, and she will not pull up. Anyone that needs to be told this obviously never played a sport, especially one where contact is common

Let's all remember that helmets in no way protect against concussions. Skull fractures and head wounds, yes. Concussions, no.

With the speed the ball is traveling now given the equipment and the strength of the girls, helmets should be considered. I have not wanted it, but some of the shots are scary now. At the collegiate level, someone is going to be seriously injured/killed. I hope it doesn't take that for things to change. Forget concussions, it is too hard to enforce shooting space w the athleticism and speed w which the women's game is now played.

This is an untrue statement, I wont go into details, but Long Island had lost one boy several years ago from a ball strike (to the chest). His death caused many school districts to mandate AED's. And there have been several serious injuries in girls lax, you are just too narrow minded, because it never happened in "your world" so in you mind it doesn't exist.

That was a freak accident, happens in baseball much more often and they don't wear much protection, if any. If your scared of getting injured, don't play! Sports. There are safe video game versions for your daughter. Oh and a soft helmet is not protecting much at all, especially the chest, making your comment irrelevant.

Over the years I have witnessed three different girls at three different tournaments get airlifted off the field. (All travel Summer games) . One girl was back on the sidelines later in the day, the other two I do not know the outcome, but suffice to say there is a fair amount of danger that comes along with the sport, like most all sports. Not sure if helmets are the answer but definitely a team wearing helmets should not be allowed to play a team not wearing them. Ask a NFL team to play without helmets. I cringe watching a guy lose his helmet and still actively perusing a play. And yes there is less contact to be expected with girls lax but strap a helmet on a girl and watch how wreckless she would become going in a pile after a ground ball. Can't let that happen against a girl with no helmet.

There are rules written to protect the players but refs don't enforce. That is the danger

Re: Girls High School Lax - 02/20/17 05:13 AM

Very difficult to decipher what the rules are from this site and from looking at US lacrosse site because the athletic directors told the coach the board of ed can make rules above the head of NYHSAA and US Lacrosse. There must be a person in charge of officiating that can help- can a school board supersede? Who is in charge? How can it be mandated if it's not officially part of the uniform? Is there a nysed person that can help? We know the "headgear" meets whatever standards there is which is bizarre because it a hard helmet, but how can ONE school district mandate it be worn if it's NOT considered part of the uniform? What about lice and ticks? The whole thing is just wrong.

"Helicoptered" off the field for a torn ACL? Only life threatening injuries are "helicoptered" off of anywhere. I'm calling Bullsh-t on that one

Ok... so how will helmets help. You just confirmed the point that officiating is terrible...so how will helmets change that. In fact helmets will make bad officiating worse since hits to head will now be called less frequently and offensive players will use helmets to their advantage. Bad idea...bad policy.


We live in a litigious society. Why do they keep messing with the football rules? Because of lawsuits. TERRIBLE OFFICIATING in girls lax is going to lead us to helmets. The rules are not properly enforced I think we can all agree on that. And since they aren't enforced, the players and coaches keep pushing the boundries


exactly right. the rulebook is not even close to followed.

Here's a novel alternative to using club lax to get recruited: Go juco for a year or two. Here's my reasoning: Over seven summers of club lax we estimated that we spent over $30k for club lax. Dues, travel, swag, etc. After all that, my daughter received $11k a year at a D1 school. She wound up not liking it and transferred to a juco. She's playing at the juco, on a good team, for $4k per year. There are already some 4 year schools that knows she will be available soon. As I see it, that's a huge monetary difference. She still gets to play lax for reduced tuition and still gets a 4 year degree after she transfers. Some of the better jucos scrimmage NCAA D1, 2 and teams and some NAIA teams, and sometimes beat them handily. There is no wlax pro league. No big payout in the end. Do the math.

Soccer, gymnastics, cheer have higher rates of injuries. Lax isn't even close. Stop with the sky is falling liberal nonsense and let the girls play. Tighten up officiating to prevent offensive girls from charging into defenders and enforce stick to body play. The helmets are not "helmets". They are soft protective headgear. Get informed!!!

Juco has always been a great idea for all kids (academic kids also) 2 years on the cheap, then much easier to get into colleges that wouldn't have accepted you out of HS but will as a transfer. Its a status thing. Athletes and most academic kids don't want that 2 year thing they look down upon it (I bet they wouldn't if these kids were paying their own way) but they know that mommy and daddy have been driving them to Maryland every summer weekend since Kindergarten so Mommy and Daddy will surely pay for a 4 year school

Monroe CC, Onondaga CC, Anne Arundel CC, Harford CC, Howard CC. Monroe hasn't lost a game in four years. Unfortunately there are not many juco programs. It would be nice if more community colleges sponsored wlax and it would be nice for some of the huge number of the west coast jucos to jump on board. I saw that Monroe scrimmaged Grand Valley State, Michigan, Quinnipiac and Rochester (not sure of the results), and Anne Arundel scrimmaged NAIA Tennessee Wesleyan, D3 Berry College, D2 Bloomsburg and D3 Lycoming. From what I was told, Anne Arundel beat Tenn Wesleyan by 10, and lost the other three by a combined 8 goals (I know one of the parents). So, there is some good lax played at some the jucos.

Some of the better jucos scrimmage NCAA D1, 2 and teams and some NAIA teams, and sometimes beat them handily. There is no wlax pro league. No big payout in the end. Do the math.


Juco has always been a great idea for all kids (academic kids also) 2 years on the cheap, then much easier to get into colleges that wouldn't have accepted you out of HS but will as a transfer. Its a status thing. Athletes and most academic kids don't want that 2 year thing they look down upon it (I bet they wouldn't if these kids were paying their own way) but they know that mommy and daddy have been driving them to Maryland every summer weekend since Kindergarten so Mommy and Daddy will surely pay for a 4 year school


That sounds good...what are some of the good jucos?



Monroe CC, Onondaga CC, Anne Arundel CC, Harford CC, Howard CC. Monroe hasn't lost a game in four years. Unfortunately there are not many juco programs. It would be nice if more community colleges sponsored wlax and it would be nice for some of the huge number of the west coast jucos to jump on board. I saw that Monroe scrimmaged Grand Valley State, Michigan, Quinnipiac and Rochester (not sure of the results), and Anne Arundel scrimmaged NAIA Tennessee Wesleyan, D3 Berry College, D2 Bloomsburg and D3 Lycoming. From what I was told, Anne Arundel beat Tenn Wesleyan by 10, and lost the other three by a combined 8 goals (I know one of the parents). So, there is some good lax played at some the jucos.


I would like to know what school those girls from juices move on to.



That's probably a little harder to tell. I have seen some transfer info on a couple of the schools websites. It's mix of mid-level D1 then, of course D2 and D3. There probably aren't any juco girls on any of the top 30 or so ranked lax teams, but of course, the VAST majority of wlax players don't play on any those teams either. On the Monroe CC athletics page is a headline about a former Tribune that now plays for Winthrop. Anne Arundel has a former player at D3 power Salisbury, and Anne Arundel has a section where they list their alumni transfers. Lots of D2 and D3 players. Maybe more jucos have a similar list?

Out of the 9 Soph. that made AA in juco last year, I could only find 3 on a current college roster with a google search. If AA are not finding roster spots after juco I am not sure how many others are either. But I agree Juco should be a viable option for girls that want to play lax after HS.

What about the former Anne Arundel player that is now at Salisbury, or was she maybe a freshman at juco then transfer? I think her last name is Draper. I think transferring after juco freshman year is a good idea too. And, one of the big problems with juco is that there are not many programs available. If more juco schools sponsored it, then obviously more girls would play, and more would move on to 4 year schools. I like the concept of juco for some players, especially ones who maybe can't afford the high price of attending a 4 year school. Like was said above, play high school ball and skip club and attend a juco. Huge monetary savings for mom and dad. I think this idea needs more support.

I cannot tell you firth-hand what D2 is like, but two kids I formerly coached play D2 in NC. Great school, very good team and from talking to them to see how they're doing, both seem to be having a wonderful time. Both are playing a lot (one is a starter as a freshman) and they seem to be having a great college experience. They do work at lax a lot, but not quite as much as my daughter did at her D1 school. Could be a coach thing, but from what they told me me, they didn't do as much off-season lax stuff as my daughter. Really, really look at D2 and D3. Lots of great schools in those divisions. Don't let yourself or your daughter get caught up in the D1 peer pressure game.

Let's be gentile about this now... the girl is good. If her knees hold out she will continue to be at the top of the crop but others, just as skilled, will catch up to her in terms of size. But she has the grit most girls don't have and never will, it's just who she is. She will not be able to carry SA alone... they will have a GO of it with SHA and this year it's either ones championship to win. Looking forward to those matchups.

Most kids start on one club and end up on another. there are multiple TG kids that went to YJ, liberty, Elevate, Leg etc. and vice versa...UNC Commit, Boston Commit, I could go on and on came from another club. So once again it's redundant, silly and just sounds stupid.

Based on your spelling and terrible grammar I am 100% positive you are a kid who I bet does poorly in school. Shouldn't you be getting ready for your season instead of posting all over this and other threads about all the kids that are at SA? Does mom and dad know that you are here starting drama? I sure hope this is not the kid that got the boot from SA starting all this mess.

North Shore Plainedge and Wantagh moved down? The top teams not in the power conference are going to win every game by 2 touchdowns.
Manhasset v GC in B finals
And Wantagh v CSH in C finals??

Suffolk B is Eastport-South Manor easily. They will win most games by double digits.

Suffolk C is Mt. Sinai. SWR and BBP just don't have enough to beat them.

6 2017 D1 commits. 8 2018 D1 commits and 2 2019 D1 commits. I would say that's an allstar team. If you can't get out of the first round with that team then the coach is doing something wrong. Try and find another team on the island that has that many commits and can't make the county finals.

My town is known for having a very strong youth program (until recently) and pulling MS girls up to varsity. Also known for failure to advance in the playoffs and very few graduating seniors. Coaching is part of it, but there's also something to be said for teamwork, camaraderie, etc over throwing together individuals with the best stick skills.

I understand the best kids should play, just questioning the mindset that says a 13 year old should be playing on varsity? It used to be 10th grade and on a rare occasion 9th grade? Seems like this has become the new norm today? Doing so, seems to be in the best interest of the coach and not necessarily the players? 7th graders practicing and socializing with much older kids, older kids sitting on the bench while 7th-10th grade kids play.

Age old question do you want your 13 year old hanging out with 18 year olds and seeing the boyfriend and drinking stuff at such an early age? And the other point was about older players dropping out because the team has been given over to under classman. That one is tricky in our mid level school where its done so every year we are begging the girls who have quit to come back so we can fill out the roster, but when they do, they still don't touch the ball. The most successful teams spread the ball around, keep everyone involved and when possible, defer to the seniors

I don't have any issues at all with the best HS kids playing on varsity. 9th graders mix with 10th, 11th and 12th graders during the school day. That said, my daughter played varsity in 9th grade and had different experiences with different sports. She was also exposed to some things that could've waited a bit longer. Middle Schoolers playing varsity is another thing altogether. Despite what many parents may think, 8th graders (and 9th graders too including my own who while may some contributions during her varsity time as a freshman but may have been better served by being a "star" on JV) that can actually compete and contribute at a varsity level are very few and very few between. Just my $.02 cents.

Nobody in 7/8 grade should be on varsity period. A 12/13 yr old in a locker room with 17/18 yr olds is not good. Maturity level, real life situations totalllly different. They should not be exposed to the conversations regarding drinking sex or anything else. There are some small districts that can't field a team without them. Doesn't mean the kid is a phenomenal player. Sometimes just need a body to fill a roster

For 7th/8th graders to be on varsity, teams must be really bad. If your kid is up on a 2-13 team getting beat by 10+ goals every game, good for you, enjoy it.

This is the "everyone gets a trophy mentality". Best kids play in high school and those are normally the ones that have dedicated themselves to getting better. You can still have good teamwork and camaraderie with a few middle school players that can throw and catch. In a strong program few if any middle school kids will make the cut. For those that do congratulations.

Bringing in a seventh grader is not nearly as common as you all make it seem. I believe there were three last year for all of Long Island. Not sure it was any more than that the year before. Your talking about maybe one tenth of one percent of the players who do this. And for the most part, every kid I have seen do this has been deserving. Mixing it up with the older kids is another issue but coaches know this and act as buffers. Still it is a personal choice for each to make and will only be an option for a very select few.

My two daughters competed on varsity sports while in middle school and it was a great experience in every way. Coaches handled the situation very well. I think people are over-reacting. That being said, some schools do not allow it. In districts that do allow it, if your child is asked to play varsity you can always decline. We all know that will rarely happen.

The worst thing is our district where the program has been destroyed by the inability of coaches to have players share the ball so not only do we call up 8th and 9th graders but we call up unqualified players based only on numbers. Its a recipe for disaster and we live it every year. When will coaches learn its a team game?

An 8th grade boy lead all of Long Island last year in goals during the regular season. He played in Suffolk "A" which has some of the largest schools on The Island. He was brought up to varsity, played, started and excelled because of his ability.

Re: Girls High School Lax - 03/01/17 06:58 PM

You're missing my point. I'm not referring to athletic ability. There are plenty of eighth graders that I have seen play they could blow away have to seniors on these teams . I'm referring to maturity. The coach can only be a buffer on somethings these teams have their own group chats and there was a lot of discussion taking place that is not for the years of 13-year-old kid boy or a girl. And yes I speak from experience my daughter play varsity in eighth grade and they were some things I really wish you wouldn't have been in her knowledge until she was at least in 10th grade

Looks like Smithtown East is going to have two eighth graders this year. Both are exceptional players and kids from great families. I think you need to decide if your daughter, should she be called on to play varsity in MS, is mature enough to handle the things she will see and hear as a 13/14 year old. Make sure you have an open dialogue with her and with the coach and perhaps a teammate or two that can be her mentor. They need to be prepared. Good luck to all.

How did this conversation go from Ward Melville doesn't play the right girls to middle school players on varsity? They have no middle school girls playing up. They have very few 9th graders playing varsity. The problem is the wrong girls are playing because they are seniors. This shouldn't be a problem this year with so many good seniors on the team

The two girls getting moved up at SE would start on any varsity team on LI, including the one your daughter plays on. One has committed, the other probably will shortly. The committed one is the best 2021 around an may be the best player on LI already. SE will begin to win very shortly, a lot of talent coming up in the pipeline.

Teams win Championships and every year when the playoffs are over the successful teams who share the ball are moving on to states. Having various players who are comfortable with having the ball in crunch time is the name of the game. Having one superstar who dominates play only helps the opposition when the playoffs start. Rest assured teams will face guard your best player so you better have 2nd ,3rd and 4th options who can deliver. Develop these options throughout the season and you will be much better off come playoffs. Ride one superstar and you will be making an early exit from the playoffs.

But I just want my daughters name in Newsday so I can attach it to her college bio page. She is too good for her High School team so we tell her to go to cage every time she has the opportunity even though her teammates are open and we are winning by 15. If your daughter doesn't like it tell her to quit if she cant keep up.

Why don't you obsess about something else and leave this young lady alone . Neither her family or her are seeking any kind of recognition.

I agree..At some point dad needs to get serious about the kids behavior, spiraling out of control to say the least. My kid goes to the same school as girl now and in the past week has heard many of the same talk, behavior and lingo towards her old teammates as being posted on this forum. I really think the NCAA D1 school will be eventually be taking an alternate route as too much baggage and trouble.

Are NY High School lax programs really that bad where they have to rely on 7th, 8th and 9th graders to play Varsity Lacrosse. And is this mainly private schools or public schools? In Maryland rarely do you have a 9th grader on Varsity at a small school but most Varsity Coaches don't care if a freshman is committed to a D1 program, or even a sophomore. They will play players that as a group will win games. Plus most of the schools in our county all have upper class man committed to D1 schools anyway so it's hard for a 9th grader to overtake a Senior.

The reality is most of the schools that have any 7/8 graders on them are the weaker teams.

Yes NY Schools must be that bad Just look at Nike National Girls Top 25 Teams they only have 8 ranked in the Top 25.

Why don't you obsess about something else and leave this young lady alone . Neither her family or her are seeking any kind of recognition. Someone felt compelled to compliment her and that just opens the doors for criticism. She is 13 years old and does not deserve to be disected by you or anyone else. Give it a rest.


You are correct, I was the original poster that complimented her. I should have known better. She's a fantastic kid and a great lacrosse player, but people feel compelled to insult a 13 year old. My mistake, positive posts are usually met by the "miserables" that stalk this site. Good luck to her and SE.

Last couple of years has a lot of LI Club girls going to programs just starting up. More scholarship money to be had, more playing time but very little chance for national success. Most of the big time players keep going to the big time programs where they know the competition to get on the field is going to be fierce but they are going to be part of the national conversation every year

Those 8 teams don't have any middle schoolers on them. Weaker programs bring up 7/8 graders to help their awful varsity and JV programs.

Like one of the previous posters stated, Smithtown East weak program...those kids aren't getting pulled up in good programs...Has Smithtown East ever won anything?


The two girls getting moved up at SE would start on any varsity team on LI, including the one your daughter plays on. One has committed, the other probably will shortly. The committed one is the best 2021 around an may be the best player on LI already. SE will begin to win very shortly, a lot of talent coming up in the pipeline.


I just wanted to compliment a kid i don't really know...just because i'm a nice person. Stop

That year they had the all world goalie,real good upper classmen,terrible conference...stars lined up for them that year...how did last year go? got smoked by GC who had a few non playing 9th graders on the team...the years when they got out of that terrible conference, they got crushed by GC and Manhasset, who we know don't have even 9th graders playing. ESM got lucky one year and now they are a strong program bringing up 7th/8th graders...Must be one of those past 8th grade parents or future 7th/8th grade parents posting this nonsense...Get over yourself.

What's left for West Islip is a goalie who for the last three years had a strong defense in front of her making her job that much easier. Last year they all graduated. So this year she will have her work cut out for her. And I'm not sure if they have anybody left that can score

You really are ignorant. The only good teams on Long Island that do not have a history of bringing up middle school kids are GC and Manhasset .Mount Sinai who has probably been the most successful
Long Island team over the last 5 years consistently brings up middle school players. Talk about getting over yourself stop preaching that the only way to do things is the GC or Manhasset way you sound like the pompous [lacrosse] most people probably think you are.

In the competitive games "coaching" plays a major role. Many HS game are so lopsided that it does not matter who the coach is but when the stronger teams compete it is "coaching" more time than not that is the deciding factor.

There are 22 Teams in "Suffolk I". On a good year there might be 6 teams with depth of talent. Only 2 or 3 (maybe 4) of those coaches will be able to win come playoff time. It is a combination of players and coaching and West Islip has proven that they have had both.

Final Four for 2017 in Suffolk I:

Middle Country
Northport
Smithtown West
West Islip

Middle Country winning .

The SA freshman team is going to be a disaster. From my own daughter, I've heard that not many have the skill to play. Only a few that are good for each position. There are only two good midfielders and three attackers. And quite frankly, a team cannot rely on five players to win games.

It's funny, we have never ever heard this freshman or any other lacrosse team at SA being terrible until one trouble making kid, got dismissed and now bashes the team and players every day. We all get it, but it's time for you to move on, I guess not much to look forward to on that crappy school team so you bash others.

She plays YJ A team.. and those are not mistakes. Kid is out of control to say the least. Can possibly be a good player in college, but she would actually have to get in to college first and that's the kicker, more money should be spent on tutors instead of lax to bring her up speed as she is nowhere near majority students academically. SA coach dodged a bullet with her as we all are witnessing with this public meltdown of being dismissed from a school where she thought she would reign supreme. There's a lot happening behind the scenes where kid is personally bad mouthing SA players and it seems they can't get a grasp on the behavior. This kid will not make it to UNC and this looks terrible on UNC as this girls reputation is terrible. I agree with the poster above that said, most kids in this recruiting age will avoid UNC because of this.

Never knew SA academics standards were so high...can possibly be a good player in college? she runs circles around those other 9th graders...looks terrible on UNC? the same UNC that was giving out "A"s to kids not attending classes...Yup, i can see it now. Coach Levy offers a kid a scholarship, kid says no thanks coach, dont want to play with so and so...keep dreaming.


You do know this kid went to another school before SA where her grades and behavior were just as bad right?, running circles? not so sure about that.. Kid does not have the body structure or weight as your average or on age 9th grader and throws body weight around to dominate or intimidate. No need to argue, lets revisit this in 2019 when it's signing day and we shall see. Cuse didn't want her, neither did quite a few other D1 schools. not too good a reputation from TG also, those parents were happy to see her go.and as you can see, her leaving did not affect TG at all. They did very well, got along well with each other and had a blast without her. hopefully by the end of the season those Pequa parents can say the same.

Listen the kids a very good player. But her attitude is atrocious the way she speaks to her father at the coaches the other players she thinks she is the end-all be-all. But the second you slap her face going on her she doesn't do anything she gets shut down

You really are a dope or your kid was not highly recruited. Yes the top players are offered money from multiple schools and have many options. Those top kids may very well elect to take a pass on UNC if they realize that living daily with a headache is not worth the drama. It had an impact on my daughters decision years ago , why go play with a player who has a terrible reputation when you have other options.

If i did i waved my hand in front of my face and blew the whistle louder. After months of this, i think we are ready for the upcoming season. Good luck to all.

No need to argue, lets revisit this in 2019 when it's signing day and we shall see. Cuse didn't want her, neither did quite a few other D1 schools. not too good a reputation from TG also, those parents were happy to see her go.and as you can see, her leaving did not affect TG at all. They did very well, got along well with each other and had a blast without her. hopefully by the end of the season those Pequa parents can say the same.


TG is part of reason she is who she is, SS as a role model? same spoiled petulant child who was never told no, they did everything they could for her and were devastated when she left, don't let BS or SS tell you anything different, they were parading her all over the country as the #1 recruit in the age group. Team didn't like her because SS let her do whatever she wanted to and the ball was always in her stick to insure wins in close games or blowouts. Age group is full of backstabbers on both clubs, she was one of many who the knives were out for on the sidelines

SA coach dodged a bullet with her as we all are witnessing with this public meltdown of being dismissed from a school where she thought she would reign supreme. There's a lot happening behind the scenes where kid is personally bad mouthing SA players and it seems they can't get a grasp on the behavior. This kid will not make it to UNC and this looks terrible on UNC as this girls reputation is terrible. I agree with the poster above that said, most kids in this recruiting age will avoid UNC because of this.


Never knew SA academics standards were so high...can possibly be a good player in college? she runs circles around those other 9th graders...looks terrible on UNC? the same UNC that was giving out "A"s to kids not attending classes...Yup, i can see it now. Coach Levy offers a kid a scholarship, kid says no thanks coach, dont want to play with so and so...keep dreaming.

Club is a business its why carol has 4 teams in some age groups with the 4th team unable to catch or throw. Just like the Bull Shi*** national championship they claim they win every year when MD doesn't show to play. If a problem child can play and help the stature of the program there will always be a spot for her. She was stolen away with open arms

Don't take the bait and definitely don't pay any of this garbage any attention, poster and his "committed" kid are just mad and going on a rampage posting crap to discredit team/girls because his kid got dismissed without a second thought and their egos are hurt.


Start a SA thread, besides 3 or 4 SA people, nobody could give a crap about them....especially freshman team

Thanks, I'm undecided if it is a good idea. But its out of our hands I guess. I think it will just make the game more physical, and girls can get away with more charging, ect. Not wanting to see anyone ever get hurt, but there is a consequence now of pain when a girl just puts her head down and charges to the cage. I think its more of a ref issue.

Why exactly is it a dumb idea? If people realize it does not prevent concussions but feel it will prevent ball or stick contact to a child's head, how is that bad? Older girls at the elite college level are not going to take to it initially. The cost is not much more than higher end goggles offered by Cascade and other companies. It should be a parent or player choice.

Are you singling out a player or is that just the moniker you have given to a ball hog? Just remember how successful this strategy has been for the last 3 years. It works against all of the teams that won't make the playoffs. In the playoffs she will be face guarded and shut out once again. One man teams are the first to be eliminated in the playoffs. Teams with numerous options are the ones that are successful.

Get away with it once and maybe no big deal....in travel lax, it happens constantly and folks cheer that selfish act..also, generally, in AAU its an adult coaching the team, so they may/may not have a more disciplined approach to coaching..not saying all, but seems to be case.

Helmets need to be either mandatory or completely not allowed. Who cares which they choose, but you can't have it both ways. Girls with helmets should not allowed to be to play against girls without helmets.

Respectfully disagree. There are just as many over dribbling" ball hogs" and "chuckers" shooting in basketball as" going to goal" girls in lax. As far as coaching I have seen dreadful coaching antics with AAU/travel basketball coaches. I think when blanket statements are made they tend to be false and I think the original statement that "lax is the most selfish sport there is" is just plain stupid and requires a reply.

Then you haven't been on as many sidelines as I have. The ball hogs' parents are ALWAYS encouraging them to go to goal, go to the basket, go to the net. It's pretty obvious to all. And if the kid is a multisport player, you generally see it across all sports.

Original poster is spot on. Go to cage, defended reset, go to cage, defended reset, go to cage defended reset. Only in lacrosse what a joke! Just wait in about 2 weeks we will see the same culprits of players and the coaches that allow it for girls scoring 10 when the team is up by 15 and beating up on weak opponents. I blame the coaches more than the girls. But the parents tell their daughters to go get theirs. Lacrosse is by far the most selfish game played

Truth. I heard, myself, first-hand, the parent of one of the most highly-recognized players in HS and now college, defend her daughter running up the score by saying, "It's her turn." I like the parents a lot but I did not like that sentiment one bit.

I also shared the sidelines with the parents of another player who was all about her stats. It made me insane because her daughter got the numbers but literally could not use her non-dominant hand and the kid would ask my kid to explain every play to her after the coach went over it because she didn't get it. She "didn't get" passing either. I'm very glad that's over.

There are many that can compete at the same level. Last time I checked lax is a team sport requiring more than 1 player. The kid has amazing lax skill, there is no denying that. However, a lot more goes into be a great leader and a good teammate. This is where she lacks.

This tunnel vision to the goal thing does not work with any consistency against quality HS defenses and it does not work in college.

"Clear everyone out, start flat-footed from the 12, run into three defenders, and get called for a charge" girl should be shut down fast by a good staff.

By ninth grade, well-coached girls who have played real opponents in club shouldn't be doing this with any consistency. She will play a much more attractive brand of lacrosse if she challenges with her eyes up and drop an assists to an open teammate after drawing the slides... Do this against a quality opponent and you will catch the attention of college coaches.

Now if your club "A" team is so desperate for Facebook post material that they shift down to a B bracket to win a tournament OR if your high school is playing an overmatched opponent and your girls can rack up some stats along the way against weak defenses... whatever makes you feel good about yourself, I guess. Hope daddy has the camera out for the highlight reel... but it's fools gold.

WB? You put that team in with the rest of those others? They will be terrible this year. Their All Americans are gone. They haven't run a real offense since before SS was there. I assume if BS is involved this year, it won't this year either.

Hope daddy has the camera out for the highlight reel... but it's fools gold.


Hey you just described our HS club coach and some of our players especially the part about racking up points against overmatched opponents

hey when the newspaper and twitter stop posting about the hat tricks and only who scored the goals without any mention of how important assists are, girls will keep trying to rack up their stats. and many low level high school coaches encourage this. it's the opposite of what our good club coaches teach. they also like you to "fake" fall to get fp calls.

Pequa girl, give it up. It's over! you contacted all the girls today asked them tons of questions and then ran to BOTC to start crap. We all know it's you, You are a very troubled girl and the sooner your parents get you help the better. This is no longer funny or amusing, you must move on and get yourself together.

Unless the lacrosse team is the only reason you're attending a school that sounds crazy to me, you're going to pass on the school that you academically wanted and may not have been admitted to if not for a lacrosse stick in your hand because you think that you might not get along with somebody? Are you going to pass on the job of your dreams as well if everyone there is not to your liking? Isn't the end game to get into a great school (hopefully at a reduced cost) get an education and transition into the real world?

Yeah she must be so proud scoring on a mediocre crappy team now as she's no longer at Saint Anthony's... Since she is the self-proclaimed lax queen, Massapequa should definitely make an appearance at states this year. (inserts sarcasm). Such a terrible kid and worse teammate. Good luck to all the Pequa and YJ teammates having to play with this problem child this season.

Your reply indicates a complete lack of knowledge as to recruiting and playing college lax. First if a player is being recruited by a top tier lax school , UNC in this case , they most certainly are being recruited by other schools and thus have options . Second a teammate who you feel may make life on the field and off the field difficult should have an impact on your decision . You will spend the majority of your time with your teammates especially ones in your graduation year . While your decision should not be solely based on that it certainly should be part of the equation .

This poster is correct. Kids with offers from Top 5 schools can get comparable offers from just about anywhere and kids will factor team-mates and coaches into their decision making process (along with academics). That is a fact!

I'm not the original poster asking the question, but it does seem to have gotten very personal against a specific young lady. I don't know her but from all the clear clues given out it is pretty simple to identify her, the posters might as well just name her. People should refrain from identifying a 14 year old, don't you think? Kind of uncalled for.

The girl isn't the issue...her father is..a bit off the walls....and beating on the moderator is deflecting from the multiple sources that have made posts in this thread regarding this player. What I get is that this player is of high quality, so I'm at a loss as to what the issue is? Do not look at BOTC, but look at those that are posting, and I would be interested in hearing about the father....I'm sure he is at the root of the posts....

While that's not completely true with today's social media most people would rather take a chance with the unknown than pick to go with a kid that is known to be a horrible teammate .

As to poster who made fun of pequa and states, they actual be be a very good team and along with syosset and Port will have a decent shot at beating any Suffolk A team to advance there so before you denigrate a team full of hs girls without any knowledge. Learn the facts. If you are mad at a dad say so, if you are mad at a freshman girl, keep it to yourself.

All that needs to be said is "two players left." Over and done. No commentary, no innuendo, just a stated fact. The fact that everyone feels the need to defend the indefensible is, um, indefensible.

Maybe, or maybe they just realized that they were not into playing a sport. Maybe they chose to take driver's ed instead since that is a conflict. Maybe they got jobs and valued that more. I'm not saying there isn't drama but you can't just assume there is either.

What conversation would they be in in the first place? They aren't good. Last year was a fluke. No more superstars to run their offense around. Coach allows TG director to run the team like he runs his crappy travel program.

Next time you go to a game, watch the warm up. See which kids are dropping the ball, making bad passes and having trouble with ground balls. These are the weakest kids on the team and will be sitting the bench. Has nothing to do with travel and everything to do with ability.

Not even close. Perhaps...you run the booster club? Or bought team gear for the whole team? Team parent who shows up with munchkins after every game, hoping to earn points? See how it goes both ways with the anonymous snark?

Do us a favor mom since the prototypical club player only listens to their parents who are always telling them to get theirs. Just tell your daughter to pass the ball when other kids are open. It makes for a better game.

In a world of rainbows unicorns and teams without booster clubs


And outright donors. And when the HS coach is not a club coach. When the coach doesn't have a relative on the team.



Let me guess. Your daughter is one of the best on the team but she sits the bench because she has no connections. Wake up!!


Do us a favor mom since the prototypical club player only listens to their parents who are always telling them to get theirs. Just tell your daughter to pass the ball when other kids are open. It makes for a better game.


Change schools, if it is bothering you so much, MOVE, but please stop complaining.

I'll add in that on our high school team, the head coach was giving private lessons to a JV player , was actually photographed giving the lesson on school grounds. Guess who made varsity and was never ever subbed out?
Guess who's mommy also donated everything for the booster club?

No need to move, just tell her to pass the ball when others are open and she is shut down. Then everyone will all get along. Nobody cares that she is going D1 except you but tell her to start acting like a good unselfish teammate and see how happy everyone will be applauding her accomplishments!

Reread your comments and then you can understand why there is such a rift on HS Lax sidelines when you bring that toxic me first club attitude in

Sorry lady, not my kid, my daughter is in 7th grade, but hey, you should really move, or have your daughter quit, because you are really whiny.

Yes , most be some excuse that your little Susie sits the bench other than she is not very good. The coach, the AD, they want to lose and only care about the booster club bank accounts. STOP BLAMING others for you and your daughters short comings , grab a stick and have a catch with her . The reason those other kids are going D1 and your kid is not is simple ,they are better players.

And I bet your the stalker who followed the coach around taking the picture. How about using that time getting your daughter's skills better, so she can get some playing time. Sounds like that JV player was putting in the time, while you guys sat around complaining.

How about we acknowledge there is truth on both sides. Parents wear goggles and overrate their child's talent. Parents also make political moves on behalf of their child.

You are all the most arrogant SOB's in all of sport. Just acknowledge their is selfish play in girls lax. Don't tell us our kids suck, they cant keep up or we whine. We actually love the game but dislike people like you ruining it

Why do some school have very few seniors if any playing? Why do some have to beg kids to play just to roster when every other sport fields teams just fine? You think maybe its the fact that older kids have just had enough after years of PAL and school squads not sharing the ball and watching little Shannon go to goal 8 out of 10 times she touches the ball? Good for Shannon Im sure she will do great in college but while she's here just pass it once in a while.

You're the loser if you think that isn't unethical.
My daughter was the leading scorer on varsity and leading assists -she didnt need to try and bribe the coach for playing time.
I'm talking about the obviously more talented kids who didnt make the team.

Global warming as has been observed produces higher temperatures on average AND wider swings in temperature resulting in higher highs and lower lows. Don't be stupid you moron.

Many districts would have stronger programs if they adopted a philosophy from Varsity head coach down through youth coaching. The key is everyone must buy into the philosophy. Start with the girls when they are young and just make it fun for them and encourage them to bring their friends down. If you only have enough kids for one team in a grade play everyone equally and encourage the better girls to help develop the weaker players. If you are fortunate to have enough for two teams in a grade balance them and again play everyone equally. The most important thing for grade school town lacrosse is development not WINS. Keep the girls together as long as you can. Once middle school starts the stronger players will rise to the top and the weaker will stay involved because they had a positive experience playing with the better players (key is they are friends) through youth level. They know who the stronger players are but now are accepting that and either putting in extra work or not it is on them. At the HS level you will then have large numbers staying in the program because they want to be a part of something with their friends. The kids get it, the parents not so much! The towns with strong youth programs that operate this way have large rosters with many talented kids waiting their turn to step on the field some not till their senior year. Many have kids with verbal commitments on JV as 10 graders. To answer your question why so few seniors playing & having to beg girls to field teams I guess if my daughter didn't feel like she had that shot at seeing the field as a 12 grader and not feeling a part of something why would she want to stay around and watch the same kid go to goal and never pass the ball? Its a team game and the program must have a team philosophy from K-12. It works look at some of the towns that have been operating that way & it shows when they are at the LI Championship game or deep into the playoffs year after year.

I respectfully disagree about how you make up/split teams. Creating to equal teams is what is killing the sport. The only reason to have equal teams is to stroke the egos of the parents.

If you are fortunate enough to have two teams (in a grade) you should practice one or two days as a grade and get a third day (or the second day) with a split team (split by skill) not equal teams. You should play games with a team of the stronger players and as a team with the (dare i say) developing players (understanding they are all still developing).

In this split scenario, you ask for guest players from each team to play on the other team. The bottom half of the best team plays with the developing players and the top have of the developing team plays with the better team. This way the girls learn together and still get challenged. It is a team game but it is a game none the less and in a game you always play to win!

As far as why not so many players play Sr year, there are many reasons, some just loss the love of it, some realize there is more to Sr year for them, some realize the younger girls are better why bother. So dont want to put up with the Bull $hit.


You all know the definition of insanity:
Doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result

We also preach the opposite:
Work harder, if at first you don't succeed try try again

Both have applications in sport, some cant or dont have it in them to work harder/do better and realize the definition of insanity.

Great post. The problem is at a very young age (and getting younger every year) some youth coaches and players are " all in" with year round club lacrosse. In our town our program has been hijacked by a few and they never adopted the best practices that you listed above about sharing the ball, playing time and positions. Years later, yes those handful were recruited however the rest of the program is hanging on by a thread. We have been hearing get the ball to Shannon since kindergarten. When 80% of scoring goes through a couple of players over a 7 year stretch how do you think the rest of players are developing?

Yes, lets have the same philosophy K-12. Everybody plays, there is no difference between the players, wait your turn, seniors first and so on. While we are at it lets do away with AP classes as well. Why don't we have everybody take the same classes and give everyone a "C" in the classroom and stop keeping score during games. Forget about playing club lacrosse that is a waste of money, much better to just play with your friends and pass the ball around. Nobody should go to the goal unless it is her turn. Everybody gets to play and everybody gets to score a goal. Practice should be fun as well. steal the bacon, the name game, pin the tail on the donkey etc..

Sorry if you do not agree but that's how we do it in my town and we are in County finals every year and have 40+ trying out for V & JV every year. It works again like I said before everyone has to buy into the philosophy.

Re: Girls High School Lax - 03/17/17 04:03 PM

Is the object for a few to get recruited or to build a strong overall program? Teams are only as good as the bottom half of their roster. The teams with deep rosters win, the teams with a handful of players don't, but they do usually get their names in the newspaper which makes it all worth while right?

Communities with strong youth programs have strong JV & Varsity squads because they have so many kids to choose from. The top players in grades 9-12 are competing for jv and varsity spots and the bottom half of the rosters in these varsity programs are generally very strong players who would be top players on most other teams. They have subs who'd start on most other teams too.

and what town is that... and is it "even" because of political BS? Could you be better if not equal??

Do you practice as a group with both teams or separately. If separately, imagine what you could do if you had a skill and drill day with the group

and for those that say the go to goal is promoted on a travel team yeah it does but those teams that will flounder. against a well coached team. if you have all the better girls on a town on one team the girls work themselves out on the field. The coach manages the game flow and adjusts in game.

If you are fortunate to have enough for two teams in a grade balance them and again play everyone equally. The most important thing for grade school town lacrosse is development not WINS. Keep the girls together as long as you can. Once middle school starts the stronger players will rise to the top and the weaker will stay involved because they had a positive experience playing with the better players (key is they are friends) through youth level. They know who the stronger players are but now are accepting that and either putting in extra work or not it is on them. At the HS level you will then have large numbers staying in the program because they want to be a part of something with their friends. The kids get it, the parents not so much! The towns with strong youth programs that operate this way have large rosters with many talented kids waiting their turn to step on the field some not till their senior year. Many have kids with verbal commitments on JV as 10 graders. To answer your question why so few seniors playing & having to beg girls to field teams I guess if my daughter didn't feel like she had that shot at seeing the field as a 12 grader and not feeling a part of something why would she want to stay around and watch the same kid go to goal and never pass the ball? Its a team game and the program must have a team philosophy from K-12. It works look at some of the towns that have been operating that way & it shows when they are at the LI Championship game or deep into the playoffs year after year.


Great post. The problem is at a very young age (and getting younger every year) some youth coaches and players are " all in" with year round club lacrosse. In our town our program has been hijacked by a few and they never adopted the best practices that you listed above about sharing the ball, playing time and positions. Years later, yes those handful were recruited however the rest of the program is hanging on by a thread. We have been hearing get the ball to Shannon since kindergarten. When 80% of scoring goes through a couple of players over a 7 year stretch how do you think the rest of players are developing?



you get the "get he ball to Shannon" when you split team evenly, you dont get that when you have the luxury of two teams and put the best players on one team!


Sorry if you do not agree but that's how we do it in my town and we are in County finals every year and have 40+ trying out for V & JV every year. It works again like I said before everyone has to buy into the philosophy.
[/quote]


and what town is that... and is it "even" because of political BS? Could you be better if not equal??

Do you practice as a group with both teams or separately. If separately, imagine what you could do if you had a skill and drill day with the group

and for those that say the go to goal is promoted on a travel team yeah it does but those teams that will flounder. against a well coached team. if you have all the better girls on a town on one team the girls work themselves out on the field. The coach manages the game flow and adjusts in game. [/quote]

Yes they practice two days together. WI

You program building know it all gurus are hilarious . There is no one right way to build a program . Sometimes it just takes several well intentioned patents at the youth level to get kids involved . Sometimes it's a very good varsity coach . Sometimes it's a history of success that just builds on itself. I also find your delusional attitude about what makes a team great comical . In a perfect world all kids on a team would play equal time , score the same amount of goals etc but it's just not realistic . The best college teams have 2-3 girls that do most of the scoring and those kids play a selfish style game .They put their head down and run to goal .Its ugly but effective .

To the above poster: Every athlete has a "win mentality" ... not matter what town they live in. Its called competition. If you don't like the youth program in GC, then leave it. Nothing worse than a malcontent, ingrate. If you want to make it better, volunteer. But that would mean you have to give your time to others, other than yourself and your kid, and from the tenor of your post, I doubt you are capable of doing something for anyone other than yourself.

As for school ball... the coaches in GC are paid to put a winning team on the field and they have been pretty successful at that. Thanks to the volunteer Coordinators, Presidents and Coaches of the youth program in GC (you have such disdain for), the GC girls have an affordable, local program which enables them to learn the great game of lacrosse from an early age and, in large part, prepares them to play lax and compete at the highest level, not just in the State but in the Country, when they get to the HS. The girls that put in the extra time and effort will always succeed, in sport... and in life.

I'm sorry but a HS that has a couple of seniors playing every year clearly isn't developing as a program. 5 kids does not make a team and if the next 15 were recruited to play out of the cafeteria I think that's a problem. Our town stays in that mouse wheel going round and round. A few kids get recruited each year at the expenses of the team. We win nothing as a group, but the handful that get recruited love it because their interests were served. It starts with the youth program. US Lax should definitely go to small sided games to get everyone touching the ball.

The win mentality was in response to a prior post. Having that mentality in grade 3-8 where kids sit on the bench so a few, including coaches kids that aren't very good can play, is not a good thing. Having volunteered, as you suggest, and seen what goes on inside I can tell you it's toxic. You don't know me but I do appreciate your psychoanalysis as it shows your insecurity. To reiterate, since you didn't understand what you read, the controlling parents have NOT been able to infiltrate the HS game, hence their kids sit on the JV bench, yes the JV bench. So in the HS the cream rises, hence the team is a winning one.

Thanks for explaining , at least now the rest of us understand . The kid is a very talented but if she has not been much of a team player in the past her teammates may decide to return the favor as breaking a face guard is a team effort . I am also surprised they don't call more dangerous shots .

Nope, you're wrong! Everyone knows the only ones babbling about this girl are herself and her father. They have full on conversations with themselves. Negative attention is still attention and they both crave it any way they can. Daddy and daughter are both just being called out!! Keep posting your "get over it" "you're hatred for this girl" responses or STOP drawing attention to yourself because no ones else cares enough to hate her and no one cares enough about how she does to have to "get over it'... except her and daddy! It's not fun when someone else actually responds to you both is it? It's not so much fun when you are not the only one responding to your own posts is it? Go focus on your season and get better.

Re: Girls High School Lax - 03/20/17 09:01 PM

I don't anything about this specific situation but do know that coaches honor their verbals because its bad for business if the don't. That's why initial offers are usually low and can go up so they cover themselves. What coaches do is try to break verbals based on cause or behavior issues. After those tough conversations the players just seem to disappear. NO different than pro teams trying to void contracts for off the field issues.

I am sure Phil and Josh will disagree with you especially the part about being big girls . That said I doubt they have any idea what's going on , why would they . That said if they knew they may pull their verbal these coaches make a good living and a player w disciplinary problems is the fastest way to lose that cushy job. Have no idea what this kid has done or not done so really just talking in general.

My daughter is in the class of 2033 and i was wondering if she can try out for our high school team. She has talent possibly maryland or unc type. She really is not athletic but boy can she play lacrosse. She use to play defense but i noticed that the defenders only touch the ball like 20 seconds a game and usually they dump it to the goalie. Kind of like spectators on the field,running around yelling ball all game. I am teaching her faceoffs hopeing she wins them and runs down the field and shoots. That seems to be the most exciting position. Anyway to get back to my question is she to young for high school.

And the first award for poor sportsmanship goes to North Babylon . The AD, the coach , the parents , the kid should all be embarrassed of themselves . You beat a team in the first varsity game in their programs history 19-1 but that's not what's bad . You have some ball hog barely average player score 9 goals and 5 assists against essentially a JV team , congrats mom and dad now you realize why no one wants to play on the same team , you must be so proud .

Not every coach does that. We have an idiot who subs out full lines if there is a 5 goal lead. Tells top scorers "no more than 8 points a game" or its bad sportsmanship- I'm totally serious. No cuts in our district and if girls are lucky they have an 90 minute practice. Just doesn't care, yet questions moral of team.

I second the dumb program who let a kid score 9 goals and 5 assists against a new program. Agree 100% that the AD and coach should get some backlash from sectionx1. What the [lacrosse] is wrong with people - are they that stupid?

Yes. Pre-season scrimmages are to fine tune in game situations for the games that count. The coach has previous seasons, summer league, winter league, open gyms, practice, etc., etc. to evaluate talent and determine who is going to play. There might be 1 or 2 positions that come down to a 50/50 decision between 2 girls, but any coach who has been paying attention should have a pretty good idea of his or her lineup well before the first scrimmage. More girls are likely to play during a scrimmage, but it's usually not to evaluate talent, just to give them a chance to see some game action or to give the regulars a break. (And no, my daughter is not one of the superstars, just being realistic.)

Coaching is just plain weak. We have a coach who didn't sub in a scrimmage. And people wonder why the sport has issues. It's the haves and the have not's. People just look out for themselves. This stopped being a team game years ago. 19-1? Give me a break! But there will be the apologists that will say its not their fault that the other team cant keep up. I will concede that point but 14 points by someone? Take her out. Make her paly defense or tell het she has to get everyone else on the team a goal before she can shoot again

I completely agree. My daughter's coaches are complete idiots. The head coach knows nothing about the sport. He never played boys lacrosse and doesn't understand the nuances of the girls game at all. They run the same play over and over and over and over and expect results. It's pure lunacy. There is no subbing at all. The team has 9 or 10 girls already that will be playing college ball and the team will be lucky to win 2 games.

the point is don't compare a mega star in a profitable sport to some gum chewer from LI club sports. if they had known how big MJ would get he could have taken a test with something else hanging out and Dean Smith wouldn't have cared.

Helmets have played non-helmets in scrimmages and non-league games so far - could change for league games, but I doubt it.

From Newsleader.com July,2016
Sports like girls soccer have been calculated to result in 33 concussions per 100,000 player outings and wrestling has about 24 concussions per 100,000 player outings a year, according to The Head Case Co. In comparison, the most recent study — completed in 2012 — shows that at least one football player sustains a concussion for every game played.

On the same note, while soccer has fewer concussions per year when compared to football, the severity of concussions sustained in soccer is significantly higher.

In the entire article girls lacrosse was never mentioned...

my daughter's friend plays on a team where they are all forced to wear them and she says she has a headache during and after every time she wears the head gear.

Re: Girls High School Lax - 03/23/17 03:29 PM

Head gear is optional. Any player can choose to wear itnor not. I am not sure if it is legal for the district or state to make girls wear it. I do know that if my daughter is made to wear it she will not be happy

Re: Girls High School Lax - 03/23/17 03:34 PM

Our district offered it too. It's not mandatory and none of the girls on our team are wearing it.

I saw a Syracuse player wore it when they played Florida a week or so ago.

So the ASTM standard is garbage? Where do you come up with the notion that it is not protective? No headgear for any type of sports claims to prevent a concussion. Different types of headgear have been approved for wear in the past but now people are paying attention. It does protect players from stick and ball contact to the head and face.

As far as non headgear vs teams wearing them, there is currently no rule on the books. It's an optional piece of equipment that some programs have chosen to use. Approved for use at all levels.

My kids have had between them 3 diagnosed concussions and 1 suspected. I have spent too much time at the St. Charles concussion clinic. They told me that helmets do NOTHING toward preventing concussion. All helmets do is protect against skull fractures and lacerations.

Concussion is caused by the brain rattling around inside the skull. As such, you can see that a helmet is not going to alleviate that motion at all. Concussions happen often when one's head is whiplashed, not from a blow.

You are correct, the headgear will not prevent a concussion.
Like I said in my previous post, no helmet is designed to prevent a concussion. I think Cascade states it's not designed to prevent a concussion. I think It will help youth level kids who get hit with an errant pass or shot.

serious question- so HARD head gear can be worn against a team not wearing any head gear and the game is played? Or it has to be the soft head gear from a few years ago? My question is for the new hard ones with built in goggles

if refs called the hacking and threw kids out of games like the rules states helmets wouldn't be talked about. This is a result of poor officiating and teams and coaches taking advantage of poor officiating to bend and stretch the rules.

Division Ave mandates girls wear them. Girls come home with headaches, helmets are too tight or too loose, and a significant part of eye area not covered. AD received money from a politician who may or may not have invested in cascade. It's a shame more research wasn't done before this nonsense was mandated. Any legal eagles on this site know if a district can mandate/enforce this if there are no NYS mandates?

My daughters team played a team all wearing helmets, with the same exact color helmet and jersey as the goalie. every shuffle in front of the net you could not pick out defenders from the goalie. Problem here is it gets very confusing when a girls shoots on net. When a defender gets mistaken for a goalie and takes an 80 mph shot to the head, throat, chest. Then what? Disaster and lawsuit waiting to happen.

Re: Girls High School Lax - 03/23/17 07:20 PM

OK, hold on here a minute. If I'm not mistaken, girls and boys use the same hard rubber lacrosse ball, and boys and girls heads are made of the same flesh and bones which are designed to protect the brain. So, if a ball traveling at 50 mph can damage a boys head, who is required to wear a helmet to protect his head, why isn't that same ball, also traveling at 50 mph, not going to damage a girls head? If your daughter cannot tell the difference between a goalie and a defender then you have bigger problems than worrying about whether or not a district can mandate your daughter to wear a helmet. Why is everyone bugging out about protecting their daughter's heads? It may not be required now but it most likely will be next year. Stop worrying about why districts are making an effort to protect your daughter's brains or who benefits financially from it and be happy that your daughter's head will be protected from potential brain damage.

Re: Girls High School Lax - 03/23/17 08:16 PM

Boys can also whack each other with the sticks, girls is supposedly " non contact". Plus there is a huge difference between this soft head gear and a boys/goalie helmet. If the new soft head gear could actually prevent some concussions more people would be on board

Girls should wear full gear like boys and let it be the contact sport it is. It makes no sense that they don't. Same stick, same ball yet no protection besides goggles. No arm or chest pads. Can't believe you don't hear more of girls getting hit in the chest or head with the ball. Girls would prefer to wear all the gear too. Unless you don't like contact.

If coaches and parents weren't so idiotic over a stupid game either then the kids wouldn't be so out of control. The parents and coaches are just as much to blame as the refs. The sideline behavior from coaches and parents trickles down to the kids. In all sports, oh no my daughter got tripped in soccer, lets start throwing a fit on the sideline and go crazy and tell your child to take the kid out next time. Great parenting is what causes most problems. Keep parents away from games and the games seem to run much smoother.

It's not lacrosse' for girls'. It's a different game then boys lacrosse. There is or should be more finesse, more skill( due to the lack of pocket). Boys lacrosse is great but it's not the same as girls nor should it be. Parents want the contract. The girls understand and for the most part appreciate the nuances .

Why is it dumb? Why should the girls play a different game. Talk about being sexist! Basketball, soccer etc are the same as boys. No differences. Girls who can't handle it won't play. But at least they will be a little safer playing it! Actually makes a lot of sense. Or else make the ball lighter and sticks too.

I second. Ice Hockey is the best example. Same gear, girls or boys.

You take any child between the age of 5 and 7, girl or boy, and give them a choice between wearing a helmet, gearing up and smashing stuff or trying to catch a ball with a tennis racquet they will pick the former.

Another example is the Canadians and Native Americans and box lacrosse. Mixed teams, same gear. With the reservation kids you can't even tell them apart because they all have a black braid hanging out of the back of their helmets.

It's not sexist...They are two different games. Unlike soccer or hockey men's and women's lacrosse are not the same.

Well, it seems clear. People are divided over this issue. Either totally for or against. I think it will not become popular and fade away, not enough support or evidence that it will do any more than look hideous!

Some of you people are complete idiots . Have them wear the same equipment as the men and play the men's game to prevent injuries . Great idea Einstein except there are more injuries in the men's game including a higher incidence of concussions . Not sure why the uproar about the soft shell helmets as it's a personal choice and hopefully it does not become mandated .

Agreed. One is lacrosse and the other needs to be renamed something else to avoid confusion. Boys should be able to play it also, just like flag football. Nothing wrong with that.

What teams are wearing helmets?

Did the school provide them?

Who is responsible for the decision, the coach or district administration?

How long before the first lawsuit is filed?

No parent is suing a school if they provide helmets for a team in the name of "safety" get real. Whether they are safer or not unfortunately the optics that they are safer is going to push more school districts to follow. Blame the 1st schools that did it because they are going to suck everyone down

I agree with you except for the last part - some of the schools are mandating it, varsity through MS.

Why don't we just require all school kids to walk around with helmets as they go about their days activities, in the interest of safety of course. If a kid refuses and trips in the playground then a lawsuit can be filed. Absolutely Rediculous! This helmet thing is the product of the snowflake lawsuit parenting. Sick of it!

Train has left the station. We all know AD's and school boards hate confrontation or controversy. That's why good coaches get fired and bad ones stay on. The fact the some uninformed districts on LI have started with helmets they all will follow and then when people see it doesn't adversely affect the game everyone will adopt. All because of bad officiating and clubs coaching players to bend the rules. Those are the two culprits.

Simplify the rules. Stop the offensive ball hogs charging into defensive players. Stop rewarding offensive players who run into triple teams only to be rewarded with a free position. Stop the horizontal stick to body. Stop the stick swinging checks. All those go to player safety. Stop calling the empty stick checks which are not safety related and cause unnecessary stoppages. Those are just a few items.

Those pushing helmets, equipment etc are unknowledgeable people stirring the pot. The soft helmets provide no "concussion" protection. No helmet does.

You guys must be fathers of girls that play attack. As the father of a defender, I'd say if the officials would call charges when a girl tries to power through two defenders then things wouldn't get out of hand. You know the girl, starts on the 8, doesn't look to pass and tries to beat three girls, gets stopped but then the ref calls a foul and she gets a FP. Terrible officiating, let them play some D.

It can go both ways depending on your perspective. I do agree, the officiating in girls lacrosse stinks.

Re: Girls High School Lax - 03/24/17 03:35 PM

It will do more than wearing nothing at all if they get hit in the head with the ball or a stick. If you are concerned about how your daughter looks on the lacrosse field maybe she should be in beauty pageants instead of playing lacrosse. My daughter played and suffered a concussion from taking a shot to the head - and yes, she was a good player, and certainly not a "WUSS" as you so eloquently put it. It will not be a choice you need to make for you daughter much longer. It will be a mandatory piece of equipment shortly. If you feel strongly enough that the current style of helmet does not provide you daughter with enough protection, contact somebody at Cascade and voice your concern rather than spewing your ridiculous opinion on a message board.

You are correct. The girls with the helmets will not be during. The lawsuit will be from a girl who got hurt playing against a girl who was allowed to wear a helmet.

Re: Girls High School Lax - 03/24/17 04:24 PM

My daughter's team played a team with helmets. The one thing that I noticed and I wonder if there is a cause/effect relationship, is that the team with helmets got carded several times (at least 4-5 times) for making contact with the head, and a few early that were close and not called, just called as a regular foul. My thought is, are the girls who are playing defense on a team (or this team) used to practicing against teammates with helmets, so they are not as disciplined with stick control on checks. Are they getting more free with their sticks against teammates with helmets without really knowing it, and is it possible that coaches aren't catching and correcting, because a glancing blow to a helmet doesn't get the same reaction as a bare head during practices? Just an initial thought, but it does warrant consideration.

if more yellow and red cards were handed out it would change how the girls play. Now they try and charge to get FP shots, check over girls heads..

I have to agree on that- the lack of charge calling is just plain silly. If you aren't going to call charges, you shouldn't be calling nonsense obstructions. Either the rules should be followed or not. The officiating is the worst- especially but tourneys where they need a huge amt of refs... quality goes even worse.

Re: Girls High School Lax - 03/24/17 06:45 PM

best move in women's lax is to stop a break by committing a foul...as long as you stop play, its a win-win..no penalty other than offense has to re-set....why more coaches don't do it constantly is curious...not try to hurt offensive player mind you, but just a little push and play stops dead...stops a bunch of fast breaks. in bball, you do something like that on a fast break, and its a foul that hurts the defense. In women's lax, aint no big deal..until refs or rules penalize crap, the game will continue to be poorly reffed and torture to watch

totally agree it is almost unwatchable much of the time. maybe borrow from basketball the tunning violation total?? a team gets five violations a player has to go off, or a free position?

its so physical it take away from the natural athleticism some of these girls have.. just call the rule book!!!

I've got news for you. My kid plays D1 and I'd say with no exaggeration that at least once per game, and often more frequently, the refs have to have a little confab amongst themselves to figure out a call. It's a total joke. Last year our coach literally showed a ref the rule book and the ref told her "that's not how I'm calling it today ."

They are scrimmages you moron, this is a good way to build some stamina, see how the players mesh, etc.

It's also good to see how players perform at the end when they are tired. Seems like a great idea.

Makes me want to come up to the moron in the Tenn Hat and just tell him he is a moron for saying that... don't even know who's arguing, but he will be an embarrassment to his daughter when he shows up wearing that hat walking around like a tough guy. Bet ya daughter is proud, unless you verbally abused her into submission already.

Still shorter than an ordinary practice. Isn't this what the girls work for, a chance to play. I bet you also complain cause you daughter doesn't get into regular games. SMH

Well if 3 games is good, why not let's play four or five!!! They have had lots of practice outside after all, on full fields with the nice March weather and all. Lets put the hammer down on this season!!!



You really are a loser .Grow the f up .


I'll be there today. Wearing a Tennessee Volunteers hat. Come on up to me like a man and tell me to grow up. Mister f bomb. Lets see how tough you are in person. Meat head.

I wish I would have read this earlier , the funny part is I noticed some fat jack a-- on the sideline , at first I thought it was a loud mouth women but I guess I was wrong because they were wearing a Tennessee hat. Time to start eating some salads , fake tuff guy.

Haha......I saw that clown. I know you can put your own stupid hat on, but who ties your shoes?

totally agree it is almost unwatchable much of the time. maybe borrow from basketball the tunning violation total?? a team gets five violations a player has to go off, or a free position?

its so physical it take away from the natural athleticism some of these girls have.. just call the rule book!!!



Maybe the idiot doesn't realize if you do it in the 8, there is a free position from that spot. Learn the rules, probably one of the idiots on the sidelines always yelling at something that isn't even a foul.

I know the rules dbag...would rather take my chance with free position shot than have a full on one on one break distinct advantage to offensive player ....and obviously, there are spots where you want to foul and spots on field where you don't ...but any stoppage of play breaks the momentum, and net-net that's a positive for the defense. But either way, girls game has become awful with refs who have no clue and rules that have no teeth.
but to each her own....

Stat padding has begun at some horrible schools. When will everyone learn to be successful you need to play as a team?

tell you when that happens...when some brave coach puts in Newsday under players to watch pre-season preview, "The Whole Team"..

Good teams will foul all the way down field to stop the break. Another tactic used all the time is to stop the break by going offsides while redefending. There is no penalty. They stop the break and sometimes cause turnover. If (thats a big if) the refs observe the offsides, the offending girl walks back over restraining line. Womens lax needs to take a look at some rules etc and make some changes.

agree....if there is no penalty other than a reset of play and making defender go a few feet behind, then offense gets screwed.....how many games in travel/HS turn into refs blowing whistle all game cause there is no penalty to defense for chippy defense?

I have emailed every member of the rules committee the last few years. have actually gotten a few responses. they say things like safety is the number one concern and the cross check is an "area of emphasis" type deal. nothing has happened that I can see. they want it physical bottom line. no point hoping for anything else. but it makes it hard to watch for the fans that's for sure.

The first rule that should be enforced is charging. It gets tiring watching girls try to power through 2 and 3 defenders because they don't want to pass the ball (and attack mom is yelling "go to goal" on the sidelines). Inevitably, the refs end up calling a foul on the defender, thus reinforcing the no pass mentality. Let's start with the charging calls and go from there. Or, let the girls police it and let the D get away with a defensive cross check. Suzie won't be so quick to drive through good defense next time.

My daughter plays attack but I will definitely agree with out that there are times that girls try to force their way to 2 and 3 defenders so they can shoot and if it is a charge, it should be called. There are plenty of other times that a defender fouls a player going to goal because if she gets the shot off and scores, the goal will be called back. Percentage wise, it's a smart defensive play because she may or not score on the free position. If the player going to goal isn't called for charge and gets a shot off and scores, the goal should count.

Don't cry, Attack Mom, when my defender daughter lays out your hard-charger then. Because she has before and she will again. It's her job.

Looks like the SA JV team is not pulling back this season, there are a few new key players on the team. Starting from the freak fast club hopper girl, the Elevate girls, and a YJ player. I am surprised that coach did not tell girls to relax, as they were completely outscoring the other team they versed today...

Thanks for the update mom, mentioning your daughter along with other girls trying to disguise yourself. We all know who you are and your team is still not that good, easy you're JV, get a grip!

Go watch the latest Geno Auriemma press conference. AAU teams don't play to win anymore. Todays athletes are just worried about showing off and not concerned with the teams outcome. He blames it ALL ON THE PLAYERS PARENTS for condoning and pushing the selfish play. Never happens in girls lacrosse ha ha
