The NLF are allowing the 2020's to kick recruiting season off at the Boy's Latin School November 5th inviting all 16 clubs that now makeup the organization. Should be a good event and it will be interesting to see the turnout from the coaching side.

There just aren't enough kids not ALREADY in private school for this to be something large enough to impact the grade? Your suggestion would be that a ton of 2019 public school kids are all of the sudden, on a shortterm (misguided!) whim, are going to flock to privates? How are they getting in? What schools have the space?? School starts in about a month, with fall sports starting in about two weeks! Not gonna happen in any big way.

I dont think the poster said the players would change their current year or school, it said they will PG (after graduating HS) but play down as 2020 for the fall. Because at the end of the day they will enter college with 2020's after they PG.

I've seen this already this summer with some New England/Westchester teams. Boys still play every once in a while as 2019 but also play 2020. If it gets you into the better college okay. (I don't like it but the way things have been going I can see it).

They are going to reclass next year based upon a prospective PG year two years hence?? That is even exploiting the system - this blatantly lying! A SA attends school with an anticipated graduation year of X based upon the grade the student is in at the time - you cannot speculate that you will do a PG year and therefore prorate yourself down now. wth?! (And BTW PG means "post graduate - it doesn't change your graduation year! This is worse than if a 7th grade kid speculated that he we was going to repeat 9th grade in two years, so he decides we will play down in 6th grade that year and the next two! Lacrosse can't go age-based for pre-HS students fast enough!

Like it or not, that is very common for players to commit to doing a "PG" year after graduation somewhere TBD, and then play with the grade down from their current school grade.

It is definitely happening where we live, and we have two reclassed players on our team, and know of a few that played 2019 last season who will now declare they are declassing and play 2020 next year.

For many parents, it is a more economical way to handle the situation as it only amounts to 1 year of private school tuition down the road vs. moving to private school after 9th grade to repeat 9th grade and then committing to 4 years of private school tuition.

If 2020 is a much stronger class, why would 2019s want to get mixed in with them? It would seem that being in a weaker grad year would benefit the 2019s. Coaches are still going to fill up their 2019 recruiting classess

The economics of it has no bearing on what grade they play club lacrosse for - one has nothign to do with the other. Reclassing of SA either happens or it doesn't - you are either changing grades or not. This is as ridiculous as the perv who identifies today as a male and tomorrow as a female so that they can get into the womens' lockeroom. It's purely to exploit a system for personal gain at the moment. And if, "where you live" happens to be MA or thereabouts, I am not surprised - that is the one place where the reclassing phenomenon seems to be a badge of honor - no one there is even remotely afraid to tell you their Johnny reclassed and is playing against younger boys. At least in MD, or mid-Atlantic as a whole, there is a some sort of guilt about reclassing, in that if you ask about a kids age, the typical response is for them to tell you their kid are in the proper grade - the indirect answer to a question that wasn't asked is because they don't want to tell you the kids age, because they know they're gaming the system.

I consider this to be a far worse example of breaking the rules than simply reclassifying. I would have to think that the tournament directors would balk at letting this happen but Madlax has allowed a 2018 to play with its 2019 team in the past because the boy plans to PG. I will let my 2022 play with the 2023s when it looks advantageous since he "might" do a PG year. I agree with the above poster that age based lacrosse can't happen soon enough.

Wait, so there are pre-holdbacks now? Oh boy, the holdback complainers will be busy this season if they don't completely melt down. At least us holdback parents can take a rest. The audacity of these pre-holdbackers. I guess we'll have to pre-holdback our holdback kids to keep the world order in check.

You guys are funny with your shades of grey arguments.... as all the dirtbag parents of holdback kids like to say, it's within the rules. It's not far worse, all of it is morally corrupt and cheating. But I hope the privates get beat at their own game or it pushes age based closer to reality.

Unlikely to move from a B team to A team but not because he isn't good enough. The A teams are set and will add one or 2 players only if they have lost players for some reason. It is unfortunate because there are many great players on the B teams.

There are spots on A teams available on Outlaws, tryouts today, team is attempting to reinvent themselves again. Also FL$, where a good number of A team players are leaving. Otherwise no chance at crush or express. Crush will remain great, while Terps will remain one of the pack.

No other top FOGO would go there to play second string. So what would be the point? The elite LI FOGOs are on Crush, Terps, FL$ (leaving for Turtles), Leg, Sweetlax, and Empire. None of those kids would even entertain being the second guy. They would be better off training a pole for when the kid has trouble.

My son has been with express for many years and this tryout was Hardly a disgrace. They had a big turnout . There were a bunch of express coches there evaluating the players who coach other express teams not just 2020 teams. There was a lot of competion . They played on 2 turf fields right next to each other and it was very organized.

Best players leaving for Turtles, which will be a team in the mix among the top 5-15 along with the Terps, legacy, maybe outlaws. These teams will all have a good season but will not beat the top 5, which will be Crush, Looneys, FCA, after that the water gets a little muddy. Should be fun watching all these teams this fall/summer.

There were some other very good players at the tryouts from other AA level teams. Do not know if they will actually go to the turtles, or just getting some playing time and exploring options. If they go the team would be a big upgrade from fl$. We will see.

Serious question, if you are "committed" and have a B/C average, is that good enough? How much "wiggle room" do lacrosse coaches have to get lacrosse players into a school? Do they have more "wiggle room" for their number 1 recruit. Can they get anyone in they want?

While I am asking questions, does a kid with a really high GPA/SAT combination, help "balance out" a recruit who isn't as strong academically? Just curious what happens

This depends on which school. If you are referring to an Ivy League or Patriot League school, schools have gotten more strict with players GPA's and SAT scores so a B/C average won't make the cut but all programs certainly have wiggle room but only so much.

How is it that a "kid with a really high GPA/SAT combination . . .isn't . . . strong academically"? Those seem to be two contradictory academic assessments that shouldn't exist in a decent school system!

Can you read? It says a kid who has a really high GPA//SAT would "balance out" a kid who isn't really strong acadmenically. Is that how coaches build their recruiting classes?

Trouble is a strong word. Kids left for sure and reasons could be take as justified. But this team will beat Igloo, lose to Express and the new Turtles team is still tying to fill a roster. So the word trouble could mix in well with a few of those mentioned other than Express.

Um, there are very few C grade players playing in ANY league. You'll find the occasional C but that's a specialized position. Sure, Ivy will apply their matrix. But unless you're THE BEST goalie/FOGO on a team, don't plan on playing major D1 with a B/C. Want proof? Look at the rosters. . .all major prep schools or high level HSs. . .

Every school has a different criteria but if the player committed with a B/C average for argument sake, they are looking for that player to stay consistent which is then that particular schools criteria. For a non blue chip recruit, if they aren't within a few points of the schools criteria, they will more than likely have a difficult time getting accepted because remember, admissions has the final say, not the coach. But like I always tell my athletes, utilize this great game as a gateway to get into school you most likely wouldn't have had the opportunity to without lacrosse which is why I said there is wiggle room.

I am really wondering about all the rising 9th grade students that "committed" last year. Will a school still want them with anything less than an A/high B average? I would guess that "regular" students would never get admitted to ACC, Big 10 schools with anything less. And since there is no contact right now, I would think some kids would really be sweating it out (well, maybe not if their grades are low).

They lost one of the best face-off kids in Long Island, truth and a real tough loss, they lost a very solid midfielder, truth, and two very good defenseman, truth, the other players who left will not affect this team at all and most will see their replacements as an upgrade. So to say this team is not still talented and won't beat the teams mentioned other than Express is very skeptical at best. The boys will play competitively so lets stop the bashing and let the results speak for itself.

The only "truth" is the fact that FL$ lost approx 40% of the top performing team in the program. That is the clearest sign of an organization in decline and should answer a lot of questions for anyone contemplating it as an option for their son or daughter. You can debate the quality of the departing players all you like, but that won't change another season of horrible practices, C class tournaments, and owners who rarely even acknowledge parents on the sidelines. Good luck with that.

Been through the recruiting process a couple of times. IMHO it would be wise to pick a school your son can compete at both academically and athletically. Academically being the more important of the two. If you think your son belongs at ND or UVA or some other high academic school with B/B+ average in HS you're heading for trouble. Mine was recruited by Ivies, Academies and High Patriot. Would have loved to see him go to one of those schools. Went to a school closer to his Academic profile and is doing fine.The reality is, without lacrosse he'd never get into those other schools. Not sure he would get out either if he had gone because of Lacrosse. Playing a sport like Lacrosse at the D1 level is a full time job. Very tough to do and still be able to study and have a social life. Not sure you're doing your son any favors by putting him in a situation where he has to struggle to get C's. Coming out of UVA with 1.9 in Social Sciences or something is not getting you anywhere. Even if the degree says UVA.

I'm not the daddy, but unless you are a top 20 recruit you are not getting accepted to UVA witH Bs and Cs from out of state.


My son is a blue chip recruit and turned down UVA with a B average. You would be very surprised at the schools that would take him.



Been through the recruiting process a couple of times. IMHO it would be wise to pick a school your son can compete at both academically and athletically. Academically being the more important of the two. If you think your son belongs at ND or UVA or some other high academic school with B/B+ average in HS you're heading for trouble. Mine was recruited by Ivies, Academies and High Patriot. Would have loved to see him go to one of those schools. Went to a school closer to his Academic profile and is doing fine.The reality is, without lacrosse he'd never get into those other schools. Not sure he would get out either if he had gone because of Lacrosse. Playing a sport like Lacrosse at the D1 level is a full time job. Very tough to do and still be able to study and have a social life. Not sure you're doing your son any favors by putting him in a situation where he has to struggle to get C's. Coming out of UVA with 1.9 in Social Sciences or something is not getting you anywhere. Even if the degree says UVA.



Same here!! My son is having a tough enough time at a top 50 school/ top 10 Lax, although he could have walked right into any of the others you mentioned with a B average. We are happy with the choice he made. People don't understand how difficult it is juggling D1 and academics. Oh, and the "tutors" they promise are not miracle workers!

Your comment doesn't refute the quoted post . . . they are not mutually exclusive things . . .


I wouldn't waste my time attempting to refute a baseless claim. Oh sorry, does the fact he says "I have news for you" mean he has actual knowledge? Using a term like daddies for grown men and referring to their sons as future D1 superstars was intentionally demeaning, or maybe that subtlety was lost on you. My post was intended to contradict that insinuation. Good fathers, good kids, not sure why you or anyone else would care what they are doing. Focus on your own kid.

Why do other parents care? Because when back room deals happen those kids and families who play by the rules lose out. There are certain parents who refuse to let honest competition happen and are always looking for an angle. You can say that is the way of the world or whatever but you can't say no one else has a right to be annoyed.

Express is playing with fire with the way they handle the boys that attend Catholic school. If you choose to leave Express for another club your son's playing time at his high school will be affected. The fact that they would do this to 15 year old boys is just pathetic. They should be very careful. Parents aren't going to sit on there hands anymore. They should be ashamed of themselves.

Yes and No. While I found playing ball at a D I college and finding time to study to be a challenge, the support I recieved through the athletic department and the tutors it provided to be a big help. You're not playing ball at UVA with a 1.9, so there is a good deal of support to make sure your GPA doesn't slip that low

I disagree that leaving means your son's playing time will be negatively impacted. The coaches definitely play that intimidation card but, in the end, are smart enough to understand that they cannot retaliate in that fashion.

There are parents out there that have been told, "If you leave, your son will not see the field this lacrosse season". You call that intimidation, someone else may see that as a threat. We are talking about 15 year old boys here. Why would any parent want their 15 year old son around a coach / organization that condones this type of "intimidation"?? I know that this isn't a new practice but I wonder what the administrators at St. Anthony's or Chaminade would think about how Express handles their business.

The Admin has looked the other way for years when it comes to Express/Channy, etc. It is extremely bad for the Catholic religion and its representatives. My son has gone to Catholic elementary but not going to the HS because of this. What a shame.

Long island club rankings based on their tryouts:

2. Terps
3. Legggac

4. Igloo
5. FL$
6.True Blue

Then the B teams like

9D1 orange

This is the Express model and the coaches and directors have done it for years. Keith Weiczorak (St Anthony's), Mike Channechuck (St Anthony's), Mike Schwalje (Kellenberg),and Jack Moran (Chaminade) all personally engaged in this intimidating, bullying, despicable behavior. Its incredible the Catholic schools don't take their own mission seriously enough to protect these kids from this behavior. The curtain will be pulled back on these predators and the numerous scams they continue to operate.

Try to get into Showtime (next Summer, but invites go out in two weeks), otherwise for the Fall, Philly Freshman is a great individual and team event as well as the HS Classic here on LI. NLF team event (LI) and Towson Gold.

Why does it matter where this guys son plays varsity? He is making a point that, if a kid wants to play in college, he should continue to strive for it. There are many levels of college lacrosse and not every kid has to play in a top flight D1 school. There is a lot to be said for a student that chooses a quality education and plays D3 or wants to play competitive lacrosse without the pressure and plays club.

Dreams have a way of becoming reality for kids who work hard and have parents who support them, as opposed to having some tool bag dad trolling to put down some high school program.. You never said what college you played for. I know the answer is no college. I have yet to meet a person who has played in college look to put other players down. There are, however, legions of parents who never played who think they know best what others should be doing.

Wow laxdad69, you won't stop until someone answers you. On the website, if you click on the register now button, it lists the years and the positions that you can register for the Sept 2 tryout. The years listed are 2021 through 2025. I get s sense you'll be annoyed by this information.

If your son is good, there is not much downside to reaching out to the director of the organization and having a discussion.

Please don't put Turtles in that category. They are going to be a joke of a team.
Igloo got much better, FL$ got worse, True Blue stayed the same, and aside from the Terps, Express is a big mess. So IMO, the rankings are as follows with each team being better than the next:
Crush
Terps
Taz
Igloo
True Blue
FL$
Leg Ravage
Turtles
Wies/Moran Express
Leghart Express

Your IMO is comical, and based on your delusions. Why don't you wait until some games are played this fall before you embarrass your self with a meaningless list. If we go be past experience, Taz, Igloo, True Blue, fl$, Moran, Leghart, are all B level teams, with Taz a borderline A, but need to be more consistant. Turtles have some talented players, but really can't be put on any list until they play. If you want to speculate however, I would put them with TAZ, as they both have about the same level of talent.

List is still

Crush, Terps, Leg FL$, Igloo, True Blu, Turtles maybe. See you in June.

So they had two teams last year but were forced to fold one. For that one remaining team, they are still not full and need to hold tryouts this weekend. And despite all that, there are still dads on here touting FL$ as one of the top teams on LI. #delusional

FL$ should just fold given all the turnover. There is no point anymore. So many child prodigies have left. They don't play in the right tournaments and their coaches have biases. All the parents are unhappy because their star hasn't been signed by UNC. Total failure. I'm sure this will all change for us on the different team we've found. Good luck to all

We're talking men's lacrosse, not synchronized swimming dude, sure the 90 Terps men's SS team was good but let's not compare them to the lacrosse team.

Does anyone know which 2020 Express team they have openings for? It is the lowest team or are they holding off on filling top team in case they get some good confidantes on Sunday?

Just trying to decide if it might be worth the trip....

Express never holds spots on the top team, they may have on their B team but if you are not @ Chaminade or St. A's dont bother. Most likely the spots are on their 4th team. From Prior experience.

Express will keep having supplemental tryouts as long as they believe there is money to be had - which should tell you all you need to know.

Are the gators are a new club team or some type of national team that plays together on special occasions? Many of these kids already play on club teams.

Another team of holbacks, might be close to 100%. I also find it hard to believe some of those kids are leaving their teams, for example Looney's FOGO? Makes no sense

Who have you heard kids are denying involvement from😂 The kids all follow the twitter and retweet their posts as well as have a groupchat together. It's a team that isn't affiliated with any groups, made up of all around good guys with an electric coaching staff. Free for the kids and not for clubs to make money off of. Just bc your kid isn't good enough to be invited doesn't mean you gotta be against it. Skogators baby

Actually the team requirement is triple hold backs and you have to be 22 years old by next summer to play. It's really helps if you have kids as well. If your kid wants to play gators just give a down payment of $8000 not including tournaments. Damn looneys fogo!!

You sound like another [lacrosse] licking tool. My kid is good plays for free often, and is committed to a school yours can't get into cause he's too dumb (like you). Sorry your kid isn't good enough to compete against his own age. I could care less about the "gators" the "turtles" the "crabs", etc. A bunch of bottom feeders who will be Crushed soon enough. Can't wait to witness the beating

Some great players announced for Gators, as well as, some okay players (same as the IL Top 100) but this team will not beat Crush. As is always the case, some political favors being called in and the pool from which both selected is the same pool which includes a lot of holdbacks. Lots of talent out there that does not play for one of the connected teams/schools so no need to worry if your kid did not make either -coaches know the weaknesses in the system and your kid if good enough will be okay.

I think you are missing the point. There are good 'A' teams all over the country quite able to compete and/or beat many Long Island based 'A' teams.

Westchester and CT have also become quite adept at holding back kids as they transition to private HS.

The 2nd, 3rd, and 4th teams are the joke.

Your response sorta proves my point by the way.

While the holdback situation impacts diminish as you get to HS, they don't disappear - when on age grouped boys play as such, LI teams tend to dominate many other areas where school date cutoffs are different and/or the holdback tendencies are much higher (MD & MA!).

Any with more than one team at an age group. Let's face it, there is only one organization with multiple teams per grade. They are notorious for it.

You cannot rule out anything with Express. They'd have 10 team if they thought they could pull it off.

Good question. I'm wondering if those institutions provide a bit of clarity/roadmap about how they approach recruiting/evaluating players prior to 9/1 of junior year.

Without clarity parents are forced to decide what prospect days and showcases their kid should attend without knowing much about what their kid will be getting out of it. You can drain your bank account pretty quickly.

I would suggest figuring out what schools your son is interested in first, then go to those prospect days.Be realistic though, check the academics and see if he can get in. I would go to a D1, D2 and D3 prospect day. See how he fares. Its trial and error.

The question with my son is not which days to attend, just what is communications like with coaches. Prior to rule change his club coach would get feedback from events he participated in. He really hasn't done anything since summer. So just trying to get an idea what to expect, if anyone has had experience this fall.

Yes- had the exact same experience recently with my son who is a 2020. Coaches would not engage in dialogue with the 2020's but encouraged the 2019's to stay after the event ended to have conversations.

Agreed, but was also told that they are definitely putting their list together of 2020 kids they are interested in, so if your son is really interested in the school, it is worth going to the prospect day for them to see your son, as well as for your son to get the feel of the school and the team. My son has had lunch with some of the players at various schools and learned a lot about the schools from the kids; how they feel about the school, the academics, study hall, travel, the style/temperament of the coaches etc. Prospect days are as much for your kid as they are for the coach. I'd pick your kid's top 3-4 schools that you know fit him academically and skill wise on the field and register for those. The rest of the schools, send them emails with video, grades and updates on where you will play with your team and what showcases. Good luck to all.

Turtles are A, not AA. behind 91 and LIE, in the mix with Igloo FL$, LegsC and Outlaws on LI. A few good players, not deep.

Turtles have not played any good competition yet. They have played only B teams, so please don't get ahead of yourselves! Don't think they would be in a close game with any of those others you mentioned.

Agreed with the above. Maybe they could play a competitive game with Outlaws.

Didn’t outlaws just play FL$ in a close game, so why make out like they don’t belong in the same group?

Um....express is not a clear second. They are in the same mix with Legacy, fl$, Igloo, and Outlaws. Let me know when you have proof they're any better. Their record is inconsistent at best. It's more like Crush, then the second tier.

These are high school boys. A bit odd that they would not play because it was cold and nasty against a team that flew in for the event. Events were going on all over the east coast in cold, wet and nasty weather and games went on. Can't imagine that Crush, from cold NY, would forfeit because it was cold to a team from the Sunshine state. Either way, it is a loss.

There were still many coaches around. Team looked really bad not playing. Are Spallina et al. proud of coaching a bunch of prima donnas who couldn't care to face a bunch of potential future teammates and NLF members? Are 91 parents proud of the optics? How can you be proud. Win on the field, lose in life. . .losers.

Take a close look at some of those Crush scores also from the Sat. tournament. They were dominant in every game but someone JS gets a few goals added (especially when playing anyone local).

I think what really stands out here is the lack of respect. 91 is a founding member of NLF. Sweetlax players spent a considerable amount of money flying in for this tournament. Crush boys were local. They had an obligation of common decency to play this game. Plenty of coaches were still around. It’s not like the Florida team could get a head start on the road as they had to wait for a FLIGHT! Down right dough bag move. A refund should be given to the Florida boys. This is also a horrible venue for this event. For Christ sake, find some turf fields!!!

Crush players as well as express players were also probably playing with their own high school teams the same day on opposite side of campus in the Fall Classic. Not sure crush ducks Sweetlax lololol . Thought express had an outstanding day in their games also fields were in really poor condition

Don’t enter the tournament if you don’t intend on playing the games. Disrespectful move. Not surprising

Exactly. 91 has now made a statement. Even though you're an NLF member, we don't really care and will decide on our own if we play you. LIE and the NY Sweetlax team played. Kudos to the LIE team for playing and not being a bunch of spoiled brats (on really really bad fields...new venue indeed). NLF members need to take some action against 91. Kick them out. . .there's enough talent already in the NLF that a dominant team like 91 isn't really needed or appreciated. Parents should be ashamed of themselves, too. And believe me, coaches noted they didn't play as I saw a coach talking with the Florida coach. What comes around goes around. . .

They didn't have enough players available in this time slot due to the varsity tournament also at Farmingdale and the tournament directors were made well aware of this the day before as were the coaches. For whatever reason same day as the NLF is also a long standing HS varsity tournament run at same site. Agree that Florida should of been given another game but this wasn't a last minute no show. This tournament needs to be played on turf

You don't tell the tournament directors the day before when people spend $$$ and time to FLY in for a tournament. 91 is a big organization, and this was a local tournament for them. surely they could have filled the roster with guest players. RIDICULOUS!!

You are a founding member of the NLF organization sponsoring the tournament, schedule a game for that time and then forfeit on a team that flew to the venue?. Very poor form. It is fall. Play with who you have and respect the other teams. The sweetlax kids may have had coaches coming to see them play and Crush took that opportunity from them. And to say it was cold and nasty weather. That is a joke. Going forward, games should not be scheduled with the Crush team or any club that does this. unbelievable lack of character and respect for others. Some things about the Crush team never change.

Not a big crush supporter but pretty sure they are not scared of Sweetlax Florida. Most of those boys played on crush and their HS teams that same day. If they told the tournament directors like claimed the blame falls on NLF for not adjusting the schedule We have competed against that team for years if they could of played they would have

Next September 1st will be far more aggressive than this past one there are still so many very good 20’s uncommitted

Thank you.


Yes- had the exact same experience recently with my son who is a 2020. Coaches would not engage in dialogue with the 2020's but encouraged the 2019's to stay after the event ended to have conversations.


Agreed, but was also told that they are definitely putting their list together of 2020 kids they are interested in, so if your son is really interested in the school, it is worth going to the prospect day for them to see your son, as well as for your son to get the feel of the school and the team. My son has had lunch with some of the players at various schools and learned a lot about the schools from the kids; how they feel about the school, the academics, study hall, travel, the style/temperament of the coaches etc. Prospect days are as much for your kid as they are for the coach. I'd pick your kid's top 3-4 schools that you know fit him academically and skill wise on the field and register for those. The rest of the schools, send them emails with video, grades and updates on where you will play with your team and what showcases. Good luck to all.


Agreed have your sons coach make sure the interest is genuine with there being so many prospect days

fl$ has not "fallen apart". It has changed players. Team is the same defensively, better offensively and worse at X. Team that played Saturday was shell of their real team and had borrowed players to field a team given HS event conflict, Showcase and football. Goodbye, we miss you too, good luck with Igloo or TT's or wherever you went. See you in the summer.

Team lost best defensive players along with a very good goalie. Not the same defensively.

Really? When’s the last time you saw dozens of college recruiters at a high school lax game? Doesn’t happen because seasons overlap. Want to get seen, get on a decent club team that attends showcase tournaments.

College coaches are going to a handful of HS games and for a very select few High Schools. Are you saying 95% of all HS lacrosse programs are awful?

They'll be lined up at the JVA (10th grad) Chaminade v Friars game this year. Always well attended in the past. But this year will packed.

If no college coaches are at your HS games...draw your own conclusions. My sons HS team has at least 5 per game if not more. So if you look around and no coaches.,.your probably not a very good program, therefore Club is your only option.

Agree and the chances are the kid they are looking at also plays club lacrosse and they are watching him there. For most of us, we choose to live in a town for various reasons such as good school for academics, easy commute for parents, convenience, etc. Unfortunately, lacrosse is not usually the reason. If it is then I hope it works out for your children but it's probably not the best reason to pick the town. This excludes discussions about private schools and this is not a debate about public vs. private.

Many of the top lax programs also are within top schools, especially in Class C. EG, if you chose to live in CSH or LV for lax, would you consider that a concession for education and/or locale? (I will concede the commute from these two are not "optimal". ) How about Manhasset or Garden City or Hewlett in Class B? Class A is a different story. And that's just Nassau.

Very happy you can afford to live in these areas. I still don't believe 5+ college coaches are going to every game or even a few games for all the schools you mention. I have no doubt there are college coaches or representatives of the college at some games. Be realistic and admit the most consistent and competitive lacrosse is not at the HS level and is still at the premier club tournaments, individual showcases and college prospect days. I have no factual evidence to back this statement up but I doubt there is any kid that foregoes club lacrosse and only plays HS lacrosse that is heavily recruited.

Yup. Denver coach Bill Tierney said at a showcase we attended that the best way to have your kid seen is to attend showcases, prospect days and share highlight reels. The college coaches and their staff are too busy with their own teams during the spring season. And you better have grades.

Hmmmmmm, sons not playing Varsity is he? On a mediocre to bad program no less. Buy whatever you want, but it's obvious your sons HS program is weak and he's not even at the Varsity level. Speaks volumes. Open your eyes and get the kid a baseball glove.

When all of those coaches are at all of the games make sure you are still coaching from the sidelines like you have done for all of juniors career and yell his name as loud as possible every time he makes a great play. All of those coaches at every game love to see that.

Easy everyone. Lacrosse is only a place for your kids to have fun and compete. Hopefully it gets them some money towards a college education. It’s not life or death. Better odds playing Major League Baseball than earning a living in lacrosse. I love the game but that’s the state of things. Enjoy your “powerhouse” and your homecoming crown while it lasts. #glorydaze

This guy is the same troll from earlier in the year. He has never played lacrosse and knows nothing about the game. The claim of five coaches at every game shows he is just stirring the pot. His problem with club is his little Johnny can’t play on the top teams. He says his HS program is great to boost his pride. But if the program were truly great a 10th grader would see little to no time. Plus as HS season hasn’t started his kid hasn’t played anyway. Lastly if the troll claims his kid started as a 9th grader, the HS program blows.

Unless your son has 5 kids on his team whose Dad's are college coaches, there is NO WAY there are college coaches at all you games--never mind 5. Hyperbole. Now may there have been one big game when colleges showed up to watch, sure, but we all know the game and are involved in it and you are simply discrediting yourself by stating what you stated. Time to retreat...

More club silliness, 10th graders and whining about whose got the best club team. All the more reason to hate Club. But keep spending the 3k a year without incidentals for a shot at a 2k a year lax “scholarship “. By the way, your son would have gotten more money if his grades were better, should have spent that dough on a tutor. Oh wait, little Johnny is getting a full ride to Duke right?

St. Johns shot themselves in the foot when they got rid of the one guy that gave them any credibility for lacrosse. Many good players coming up through the ranks, but you can't imagine the beatings they will take this year. The rest of the coaches in the league are pissed about the firing because SJ was on the verge of helping their league. The guy taking over is looked at as a traitor for throwing the old coach under the bus to secure his position. This guy had the team for years. He sucked then and will suck now. SJB threw away any chance ant being competitive because there are weaklings that can't handle the demands of being a good team. They go home and complain to the parents and the parents complain to the school. It ends up with the kids being short changed. My son plays there and grew as an athlete more in a year than any other time. The athletic director is a baseball guy and could give a hoot about lax. Those good players should leave like my son is. The new staff there is made up of a bunch of babies.

this doesn't sound correct . The old coach behavior was out of control ???? That what I observed .

Please dont say they would be good because of that coach. The way SA and 'Nade used to build their JV teams they wouldve beat the Varsity of SJB. SJB wouldve been good if they would have snagged Spallina years ago and built it from there. But the league is only a 2 team league anyway, but if you talk catholic teams on LI dont discount 'Berg. But i wouldnt be surprise if it becomes a 1 team league because SA didnt only play an ineligible people in 2017, you remember that debacle, but they also did it in 2015 and prior.

SJB has some good players in the system . The other Catholics are watered down but still very good solid programs

Let's talk about this: kids from out of state coming to live on Long Island with "host families" and attend St. Anthony's while also playing for Crush or Terps. St. Anthony's is the worst....their standards are literally non-existent.

So insane. And for what. Lacrosse is a cult sport. The only people who watch the games are the family members of the players. It will never take off. Maybe we should have our boys focus on getting good grades and finding a fulfilling career. Total waste.

Sounds like ST A is up to their cheating ways again. Just last year they were letting ineligible kids play. Unbelievable! Guess some people feel they are entitled and above the rules.

So now its someone else's business where parents send there kids to PRIVATE school ? As far as I know its a "Private" School open to anyone, so if someone wants to commute 50 or 100 miles to school (As some kids do at St A and Chaminade) who's business is it. If it was a public school maybe there's an argument but for a private school weather you live across the street or across the state does not matter.

So its a "Joke" and "Amoral" and lacks character for a kid from down south to go to a private school on Long Island ? If he went to a private school upstate NY or in PA, Maryland, Jersey, or Alaska would that be ok ? You obviously have a strong hatred and BIAS against the kid, St Anthony's, and or 91 Crush . lol...Ridiculous argument ... ITS PRIVATE SCHOOL DEAL WITH IT.

Why does it bother you so much if the kid is from a state down south? He is probably a very good lacrosse player whose parents recognize his talents and want to give him all the advantages that come with playing on Long Island. The amount of money the parents will save not having to fly the boy all around the country to attend tournaments, etc. and the education cost is far cheaper than a non-Catholic private school.

I thought host families were for foriegn exchange students. And SA is not truly classified as a national private school rather it was always just classified as a regional catholic school. But things over there are changing.

Why are they jumping the shark?

If someone from another state wants their kid to attend St Anthony's for what ever reason, sports, education, or whatever, and the parents can make what ever arrangements they need to in order to make that happen, still don't see how that's a problem. If they bought a kid a house or condo, or rented a home in Huntington would that be ok ? Don't see how its any ones business or honestly why people care . Families on Long Island pay to send their kids to other PUBLIC school districts outside their home districts for athletics or other personal reasons all the time, they ABSOLUTELY do. Sounds like people have maybe a jealousy issue specifically with St Anthony's.

Neither angry, nor jealous. just pointing out the the fact that St A has a well earned reputation for cheating. Just last the boys who were on the team last year, they would describe it as far from comical.

St. A is not a boarding school you dope! But you are spot on about why someone from out of state would want to go there. School is mediocre in all respects. Academics are rather weak.

If this is regarding an out of state student athlete I dont understand the issue. St. Anthonys has students from abroad and from many different towns. If a student and his family from out of state want to send their child to attend and there is a family member or a friend who is willing to board the student there is no issue. The parents pay the tuition and the student has the grades to attend then there is no cheating.

If it were a public school and a family or non family member who was not a legal guardian boarded a student and they attended the local school then thats an issue.

The problem, Greg R.N., is that there are (ironically) no rules in the catholic league. St. Anthony's takes transfers from out of state whenever it works for them, especially if the kid wants to play both for Express and a Varsity lax coach who has trouble understanding eligibility rules Stepinac, Cardinal Hayes, etc. offer full ride scholarships for football and other sports and also accept transfers. Everyone on here seems to hate Chaminade, but they don't accept transfers and don't offer any athletic scholarships. If you cannot get in as a freshman you are not going to Chaminade. St. Anthony's bringing in upperclassmen from Texas only proves what is already widely known: the school is a joke academically and will do anything to try to win. That is the issue. Coming from Texas for that is just insane, but each to his own. Merry Christmas

It's a local school and nobody needs to have their kid sit the bench because Wizorass let's the kid on the team. Again, they broke the rules last year, they are supposed to be Catholic, and the B's continues just like the friendly priesthood to little boys.

Again, maybe insane to you, but bottom line its not your child an really no ones business. People will use any excuse they can to bash St Anthony's and no one is hating Chaminade.

It's a local school and nobody needs to have their kid sit the bench because Wizorass let's the kid on the team. Again, they broke the rules last year, they are supposed to be Catholic, and the B's continues just like the friendly priesthood to little boys.


Let’s back off the accusations about priests you dimwit

Let's just turn a blind eye, and go out and cheat again. Great morals for a catholic school. Crazy that the so-called leaders are corrupt.


It’s a lacrosse game loser. Get off the soap box and do something good for society other than your phony BOTC outrage at the Catholic Church.

Chan and Wizorass are losers, and so are you!!

Leave the kid from TX alone. Let the kid be a kid. He transferred from another reputable private school in NY. I don’t know his entire situation and neither do you.

So now we know what its really about, competition for playing time. As far as breaking the rules last year kid involved was a complete non factor, non impact player who rarely if ever saw the field, just a fact

its really funny reading all of this nonsense's
My son is a defenseman from Chaminade and he along with some of his classmates are good friends with St Anthonys lacrosse players. All they care about is playing college lacrosse. They all love the competition and most importantly they like each other. Lets get over the bitterness. Lets focus on how we can get every kid recruited. I know many kids from both sides great kids who will eventually will
play college lacrosse

BOTC stands for Bitterness Of The Century. It’s the motivation behind 99% of the posts. Parents only care about their kid winning. They don’t care about “corruption “ or bad priests. It’s because their kids team got beat and precious prince got smoked by another kid. Let’s not stand on soap boxes and try to paint another story. Own up to your jealousy and bitterness.

So because the kid transferred to another school for whatever reason, he shouldn't be play lacrosse for his high school ever again? You make no sense - you are just looking to bash St Anthony's and you are using the kid's situation to do it.

Is it possible to attend a D3 school and just play ball if you pay the tuition. My son is destined to work with his hands and he can get that experience as an apprentice, but really loves to play ball. Cant find anything in the rule books on this anyone know the facts or anyone else who has gone this route. Thanks in advance.

Are you asking if you can simply pay tuition to a school, but have your son not attend classes, in order to qualify as a "student" in order to play NCAA lacrosse at said school??! For the love of God, please tell me I've misinterpreted your post . . .!

I am praying to God that you and I both misinterpreted this post. 12 credits per semester to maintain eligibility D1, i believe D3 can set their own requirments - I am almost positive that just paying tuition is not going to cut it. Good luck (i guess).

Yes, just looking to pay to play and not be burdened/distracted with waste of time classes. So over rated. So full tuition, zero credits but like a meal plan and eligibility and housing so he can get the most out of the college experience without silly classes. Clearly coed colleges only we're interested in--that part I can research on the web on my own. You only live once and I want him to have the ideal experience,

You will also need to achieve a certain academic level, IE, successfully complete courses in order to stay at said school and maintain eligibility to continue as a member of any NCAA team. Considering that many of the better D III lacrosse programs are schools that are also very competitive academically, both in terms of acceptance and ongoing achievement, I am not sure a non-serious student should consider that path, let alone a SA that has no desire to go to college.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2020 - 10th Grade Fall 2017/Summer 2018 - 01/29/18 08:35 PM
D3 has the same academic requirements. You’re son MUST attend classes. Additionally he must meet the standards to get in, including SAT/ACT. GPA. He must maintain a satisfactory GPA to remain I. Good standing to continue playing. So to answer your question, no he cannot go to school and just play lacrosse.

Not that it's relevant to the 2020 board, nor even just lacrosse, but I've long felt that there should be NCAA athletic opportunities for people, such as your son, that might choose to attend an accredited school that led to trade. I realize this would require a sea change to occur, but there a lot of kids going to college for the wrong reasons as well as shortages in many trades.

When attending a trade school, most free time is dedicated to apprenticeships, with little free time for athletics. The goal is to get employed as quickly as possible.

I assume the guy talking about paying for school to play lax was a joke... I hope. However, I am a big fan of supporting the trades, very lucrative avenue for the right kid. Wasn't my road, but I'd support my son if he wanted it. To this point, there are some schools out there that offer construction management options. Perhaps a kid that wants a career in the trades would benefit from a degree like this, while also pursuing a trade. I also believe the JUCO route offers trade like options at their schools and also offers very competitive lacrosse. Top JUCO schools will compete and beat top 25 D3 and lower D2 and D1 teams. Very competitive lacrosse.

Understood - but for many, such an option that deviated from the norm might make sense, if it existed, and to another responder's point, there are construction management programs and the like available already at some schools.

Looking for some guidance:
When sending out short notes to coaches with semester GPA updates, is there any value to them to see early (sophomore year) PSAT scores, if scores are very high (99% percentile)? I realize that the PSAT is meaningless even for juniors except for those who qualify as National Merit Scholars, but these scores would be on track for that. Admissions offices would absolutely appreciate the value - just not sure whether coaches would and whether to include in update.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2020 - 10th Grade Fall 2017/Summer 2018 - 02/12/18 08:39 PM
Congrats. yes. send the score if its above 1000. if its not, readjust the schools your son is looking at. good initial weed out.

My son just did it this past Fall. Overall I would say if you have the $, do it. My son hated it while it was going on, but was really happy that he did it after it was over. They work them very hard, its no joke, but the level of talent there is impressive. The kids were absolutely exhausted at the end of each day and were walking around the hotel with ice packs, etc. None of that standing around crap that you sometimes get with these events. The drills will be stuff he has probably seen before, but at a tempo he hasn't. The competition is totally legit and the kids all got along with each other. The exhausting work brought out the camaraderie. The instructors were as advertised and were all there for the whole event. Extremely gracious to the parents (although they do encourage the parents to only show up for the last day of games and not the other sessions). It was something really cool for him to be a part of and I'm glad he did it. So you know, its not a recruiting event, but an instructional camp on steroids. My son was invited back but he is going to pass on it. Its one of those things you do once if you are lucky enough to get invited. Two times is overkill (but to each his own). Plus tons of swag, as the kids say - tons. Good Luck

Pretty sure they did ok, lost two games by a goal, one loss by 2, beat two decent teams. They are in the mix, not great, not bad either. About equal to Outlaws and Igloo.

My older boy was with the original turtles for a period of time. Things started to fall apart as boys entered HS and their 9th grade summer they had several losses and not many tournament wins team like the WCS HHH/Dukes and a bunch others turned the tide.my younger son is a 2020 and The Crush is still a team that doesn’t lose. As kids get older there will be less and less blowouts Seems like the person who posted that is JD or a daddy that signed up for the new turtles hoping they would be the old ones

Pretty sure they did ok, lost two games by a goal, one loss by 2, beat two decent teams. They are in the mix, not great, not bad either. About equal to Outlaws and Igloo.


Adrenaline:
Igloo 4-2
Turtles 2-3
Outlaws 2-3

Igloo beat Outlaws in only game between the LI teams.

Crush>Express>Leg a sea>fL$>Igloo>Outlaws>Turtles>True Blue>Blue Fish>Hitmen

9/10 times these results stand...

And you know what...it still doesn't matter at all. There are kids on each of the lower teams that could be on the higher and kids on the higher that wouldn't start on the lower. We all know this so Let it be, let i be.

I watched final game crush vs Express. It was a great game right up until the refs missed a call that would have gave the Express the ball and most likely the win. Instead it went to overtime. Regardless, one of the best travel games I have seen. Express and Crush have some of the best 2020 committed and uncommitted kids. Express defense did a great job on the crush attack.I hope I get a chance to see them play again.

Admissions offices would absolutely appreciate the value - just not sure whether coaches would and whether to include in update.


Many schools look for a pre read on a player. So if the player has the skill set to play at a school and also the grades its important to let the coaches know. You will not get a reply back till after the start of Junior year. This is based on the new recruiting rules.

If the score is high of course send it. His psat scores are a more accurate indicator of his future performance on the SAT certainly than his 9th grade summer results...

"2020 Crush nowhere near as good as the original Tenacious Turtles."

Who would write this? And who cares? Ridiculous hypothetical JO statement.

*Tomahawks "A" team was not at the big 4, they don't even have a B team from what I know. There were quite a few talented teams in Delaware, and the sidelines were lined with coaches.Turtles did beat a legit team, but still need to figure out how to win one goal games. Sweetlax dominated Legacy, who otherwise did very well, in the championship game.

* IMCLA seemed to be a weaker tournament, not too much recruiting going on there, Outlaws showed to be mediocre, as expected.

* Interesting that Crush did not even make it to the Championship at BIG 4, Express knocked out early as well. Looks like the double hold backs prevailed this weekend as the FCA, (fellowship of cheating athletes ) won the ship there, with Looneys coming in 2nd.

*FCA is the new sheriff in town.

Ahem....Crush has their share of holdbacks, including a certain double holdback. Great example of playing the game the right way, coach! Love MSG Varsity "he's so young" when the kid should be a junior. Give me a break. Glad Crush lost. Only thing worse than Crush dads are those intolerable Crush moms with their hooting and hollering.

If you’re still talking wins/losses in club at this age your son has no future in College Lacrosse. This should be about recruiting, who cares what the score is. That’s why they have high school, club at this age is all about where your son will be in a couple of years.

At the 2020 level holdbacks are not dominant anymore, everyone has caught up. it mattered in 7,8 grade with the early recruiting madness.

So glad that the early recruiting has gone by the wayside. I know that some of the kids who are committed at the 2020 level have been really sweating it out, because they have not been able to have contact with their future coaches. I do wonder how may of them will receive the "it doesn't look like this is going to work out" comment come fall? I also wonder how many of them will change their "commitment" or end up never stepping foot of the field once they get there. Some look great, but some are average at best as they are getting older.

Of all the early recruits from LI that I know, they have all pretty much held their own, and are worthy of their recruitment. Sounds like the same old jealous nonsense we’ve been hearing for years.

So, the top 10 seeds at Crab Feast make the playoffs. The tie breaker is goals against and then goal differential. 10 teams finished 3-0 on the day, so it is simple, those are the top 10, right?! Well, not so simple when the Crabs finish 2-1. So they decide that it isn’t good enough to be 3-0, you have to win your pool. Which would be reasonable, except that in one pool (which has 6 teams instead of the 4 like all the others) there are 2 teams that are 3-0. Freedom and Edge. Well, because Crabs had to make it, Edge get bumped, which really stinks for them. At 7:30 the bracket is announced and sure enough, Edge got screwed. Freedom has an 11AM game as the 3rd seed vs Patriots. Well, I guess Edge is pissed and all of a sudden (at 11PM) everything chnages and now Freedom and Edge have to play a play in game at 8AM. And Patriots currently have no game scheduled. Seriously, who runs a tournament like this?

Not only that, but they also switched where the number 10 seed (which is what they got) lines up in the bracket. The number 10 seed should have been lined up as the pigtail into the 1 seed bracket. But they slid it down so they matched up with the 2 seed. Forcing FCA to play the number 1 seed Looneys. Total classic that the Crabs lost their first game. Seriously though, waiting for the email that says “wait, there has been a change, Crabs are in the finals due to circumstances beyond out control, Next Level didn’t make it.” The Crabs just proved that they will cheat to win, glad I am not associated with that program at all.

It does matter, because there are more coaches watching the winners bracket for sure. And, if it didn’t matter, why did Crabs do it?

It matters because those were the rules and Crabs has been giving themselves the benefit of breaking their own and others tournament rules for years. Same team that used to bring 2019s down to make sure they beat Crush and then got demolished in the World Series when they could not bring their older kids as age proof was needed.. They have been doing it for years and the team is just not that good anymore but they always have the best excuses..

Because not only am I a loser who has no future, my son is a loser with no future as well and so forth for all generations past and future, I predicted the pool winners from Crabfeast. Let me know what you think.

FCA
3d New England
Legacy
Laxachussetts
Leading Edge
Team 91
Express
Crabs
Looneys
Edge

9D1 B has beat several teams on that list, like Express B and Li Tide. They could also hold competitive matches with TB, TT, Igloo, and FL$. They are an underrated team, who plays too competition

Face it, team stinks and is a money grab to support the A teams. Maybe if you're interested in a D2 school, you might be recruited. Otherwise, they're selling you a load. B teams should not charge the same amount of money as A teams, you don't get the same attention.

Turtles looking to add teams for next season. Their 2020 team is awesome, if they are able to attract some good talent in the middle school groups, their organization will be as it was only a few years back. I don't think the owner will settle for a run of the mill organization... Watch out!

Ok, we can put to rest notion that Team 91 Crush 2020 is in the same tier as 2017 Team 91 Tenacious Turtles. They're not. They just lost to a Atlanta team. They've lost to Looney's and FCA. That would never have happened to the original Tenacious Turtles.

It's karma for how the head coach kept kids on the bench in a blowout instead of playing them when their parents paid 1000's of dollars to fly out there. Great team, but not the Tenacious Turtles.

Crush blew it again, going downhill. Thats what the coach gets for not being humble.

The LI Express 2020 A team (Terps) was not at Naptown this year. Will be at NLF and this weekend at Terps young Guns. Team doing great this

Seriously? Look at who they played. No competition. They are a solid B team at best. Crush,Express and even Legacy would beat them by 10 plus goals. Beat someone good and than you can pound your chest.

Maryland parent here. I will hand it to 91 NY, win or lose, they always (to my knowledge) play with just their guys. I am not taking anything away from Thunder/LB3 or Madlax but both of those teams will, with full disclosure, roll with players from outside Atlanta and DC respectively. I know 91 '2019 has kids from NC but they have been on the team forever.

FCA will roll with "guest" players and Crabs will move kids from team to team intra-tournament. 2020 and 2019 91 wins a lot of big games and big tournaments with just their guys. It will be interesting to see how they do at Lake Placid as they are playing every other program's "National" team.

They might not be in the same league as Crush, but have beaten some solid A teams such as Madlax and Tomahawks. I would not call them a B team. As for Outlaws, they have shown themselves to be a B team and have been in over their heads all summer. Legacy and Terps have been up and down. Someone said the Terps didn’t play at Naptown? Was it a mixed team? I saw several of the Terps top players there and assume it was them

So the Turtles "might"not be in the same league as Crush? Come on Manhasset Daddy, you are embarrassing yourself. Time to head back to Plandome Country Club for another cocktail.

I can guarantee you it is not a Turtles parent spewing that nonsense. We are smart enough to know we are not in the same league as Crush. It was a decent tournament but NOT Naptown, and that’s fine. Boys played well and had fun. Please don’t take the bait from somebody not on the team, but likely has an axe to grind.

Also for the record MADLAX lost to Iron Horse, Legacy Taz, and Rock this past weekend...putting them close to the bottom of the 32 team naptown field. just sayin. Good luck the rest of the way.

Three crush kids on Nassau three on Suffolk think many of Top kids are done with the summer

Did Nassau play Central?

Thin, especially with none of the good catholic school kids attending

Any college coaches make the trek up to Binghamton to watch the games?

The tourney was fun. True, it would have been better if the Chaminade and St Anthony’s kids had played, but that’s their choice and their loss. The Nassau vs. Suffolk semi-final game was a great game that was well played by both teams. Too bad the finals got cancelled, it would’ve been fun to see Nassau play Central.
