There should be a break! August is the boys time off. 12 months straight of any sport will lead to burnout and injuries.

38 is good. Your son will be right there for the hybrid team. That is the team that is for the the bottom half of the AA roster that returned and selected kids at tryouts. There was over 100 kids there last night to pick from. That team has a chance to be like Igloo's 2nd team.

You obviously have no idea how Dukes works and are making yourself look silly. Dukes is not a team, it is a program. There are more kids on the roster than those that play in games and tournaments. The "tryouts' occur every month from August to May. Kids are free to come to the monthly tryout and be added to the team if they are good enough. It's not realistic for all the kids to make it each month. This doesn't mean you aren't on the team anymore. Many of the kids from last years roster have already been invited back, not just the koopers kids.

Let's tally the daddy coaches nonsense so it can all stop.
Express A 2 daddy coaches
Igloo A 2 daddy coaches
Igloo B 1 daddy coach
91 2 daddy coaches
Outlaws 1 daddy coach
Lagacy 1 daddy coach
91 B 1 daddy coach

Dad's coaching as an assistant is fine. And very needed. So your tally data is skewed, The issue is sometimes when the Head Coach is the daddy coach. Then that could be a potential red flag. Obviously, there are cases like the Bandits and Badgers where you gladly accept those dads. But this is club lax, where we are all spending a ton of money and time. Every team should have a Head Coach that has no ties to the team. However, sometimes those coaches do just the minimum. Whereas a daddy Head Coach will invest the time to practice, so this whole thing is maddening and every team and club is different. So practice and commitment is key, along with keeping an eye that dad doesn't favor his son.

Head Coach (and most are club directors)
Express A and B - nope (director for A)
Igloo A and B - nope (director for A)
9! A and B - nope (director for A)
Outlaws A (director)
Legeeacy A and B - nope (director for A)

Not a bad coaching line up

Getting moved down the depth chart and getting moved below the travel line are two different things. Obviously showing up at a tryout helps, but they aren't going to move their best kids below the travel line. That would be silly.

Hate to break it to everyone...Your kid isn't getting a scholarship. My kid isn't getting a scholarship. 13% of HS players will go on to play college lax, at any level. Less than three percent will play "D-1." Let the kids play because they love the sport. Let them play other things. Invest the money you'd spend on one of these high priced clubs into SAT Prep. Get your kid on the wall, show him to squat, deadlift, and power clean, make him run, if you want him better at lacrosse.

Especially when keeping up the perception that the more clinics you do with Dukes improves your chances of moving above the travel line.

Again, you obviously have no idea what you are talking about in terms of how the program works. Either that or your son was gradually moved off the depth chart as better kids started to come out and you are salty about it. It's a national all star team that constantly looks for new players. That's what was explained to people when they sign up for the very small fee to join the depth chart which includes your helmet, uniforms, etc.

My son doesn't wear his Dukes helmet all the time because of two things. First is it's a Warrior Evo helmet which most kids don't like. The second is that it's black and the kids call them lava buckets because they get so hot in the summer.

Not sure why the hate on this team. Obviously they are very good as was shown in their game against the Hawks. What everyone isn't realizing is that teams like this are the next evolution in youth lacrosse. Club lacrosse started as a way for kids to play with other talented kids. Now everyone plays club so there is going to be another delineation created to separate the top players.

You are crazy if you think National teams are the wave of the future. The whole Dukes National program is laughable. Ask yourself, why isn't there a Dukes National HS team? When the answer smacks you in the face, you will realize you could have spent a lot more time with your son away from the lacrosse field.

Dukes is a joke. Doesn't practice, counts on taking well trained players from quality clubs and pretends that they are doing something special. The only thing they do well is sign up the right kids and convince them to skip their club teams games a few times a year.

Can somebody give some feedback on some teams. Practice, coaching commitment, coaching ability. Please share real experience both pros and cons. I think the norm is a team that plays 2- 3 fall tourneys, trains and practices all winter. Spring off for school ball. 4 -6 summer tourneys. And practice 2 times a week once school ball ends. And does the coach answer emails and really wants the team to succeed over it being a side gig coaching.

It's great that your son has the ability, and you have the means to provide him with the experience of one of these top tier clubs, so you can disparage other clubs out there. You should be very proud of him and yourself. To that end, Viper, a non profit organization, which has donated its proceeds to countless charities, and keeps its cost reasonable for its players, probably isn't for you.

Trying to figure this one out as well. Seems like they are trying for four teams: Channy X 2, Schwalje & O'Reilly. Anyone have any insight on the pecking order here?

Schwalje is a newly created A team is all I know.

I think you have the pecking order correct in your post....c4

Channy's teams would be 2022 Channy (denver team), 2022 Chuck
(So called hybrid team)

That is correct. That is an impressive and most experienced coaching rosters around.

AA -Channy
A - Schwalje
B+ - Chuck
B - Oreilly

Why would Channy coach a C team the order has to be going as followed
A) channy
B1) chuck
B2) Schwalje
C) O'rielly

No Channy Jr team.....

I think they are keeping it a bit murky for the reason of player retention.

Would be nice if it was crystal clear.

A Birdie said that they opted to even the talent between Chuck and Schwalje because they were talent heavy in some positions. Several players were good enough for Chuck but it would be better to have them on Schwalje. This will prevent lack of playing time, by far the biggest complaint.

Will their really be enough kids for 4 teams?

All Star Staff. Doesn't get any better and the kids should have a great uear. But based on which kids landed where it's still Channy, Schwalje, Chuck.

The order is Channy, Schwalje, and Chuck. And it's good thing, stop with the labeling and trying to make it a negative. These three teams have some of the best instruction around. The Chuck team will be better than the top teams at any 2nd tier club. That's not a knock, its just that showing a point that calling a team AA, A, B+, B or C makes difference, if the team is good, they are good.

What did you expect. Dukes came into this game fully loaded and in my opinion it was a PR game for them. Express beat them during year 6-5. So obviously it was not the two same teams.

LIE was missing some talent today although nothing close to the aforementioned 6 starters. I know Dukes Nationals 2022 were missing some of their best midfielders, a couple defenseman, and another top attackman for this exhibition game earlier Sunday. They were also a couple top players for the Futures tourney when they lost 6-5. Both teams are very solid but edge has to go to the Dukes Nationals because they never practice as a team. LIE practices together a lot and some have played together for years. Even when DN's get together for their monthly minicamps/evaluation/tryout, the team and players that are present is always different and can change month to month. To play at such a high level against teams like LIE, Annapolis Hawks, etc. is somewhat impressive. The secret sauce lies in the coaching, the system and the program. You can't take anything away from LIE as they are a top elite team. Igloo, PrimeTime, Hawks (and others) are all top tier. In my opinion and a the end of the day, advantage goes to Dukes Nationals and their organization. Well done.......

But you're right, you are wsyl champions. Giggle, giggle. Then 2 weeks later you went to the real national championship and got waxed. Didn't get out of the 1st round of the playoffs. Guess you were missing your top 20 players there also.

You honestly think this team is going to fold after this year? The program just started a couple years ago. So we can have this conversation again next year after DN continues to bring in bettter players. Who knows, maybe even some LIE kids may give it a shot. If you can't beat them, join them.

I doubt they do anything more than two teams. But that's my opinion and I know nothing of their plans. The difficulty is not getting the teams... it's people would rather be on a 2nd tier clubs A team than a 2nd or 3rd team of a top club. Before all these new clubs starting forming, Express, 9! and TLI all had a minimum of 3 teams per age. I think the amount of teams a club has per age is all based on the coaching and is the team that pays the same as the top team, getting the same attention. I know that is the case with Express.

Your post shows you have no idea what you are talking about. If there is a DN 2022 team next year what tournaments are they gonna play in? Baltimore Summer Kickoff, Big 4 Summer, Crab Feast? Do you honestly think kids on Team 91, Crabs,Laxachussetts, FCA, LIE, Philly Freedom, Mesa, and the original Dukes team, etc....are gonna be allowed to go play for DN when they are all in the same tourney? If a kid is already on a top team, what is the incentive to play for DN. He is already going to play against the best competition and get seen by colleges at all the big showcase tourneys. And before you give me they can attend the monthly combine/tryout, those venues already exist for the HS player, they are called Jake Reed Blue chip, Maverick Showtime, and the Under Armour tryouts.

I will be glad to have this conversation again in a year

Really who cares. Believe me the owners are all the publicity you are giving them. Let's chat our little world here on the island. Big tryouts this week at Leggy and 9!. I think they'll be attendee's at each other's tryouts and both will probaby improve.

With your idiotic logic, it can be said that Igloo "got waxed" by Primetime in Denver. By the way, what is your definition of getting waxed? Would losing 7-10 be considered that? For most rational people, that would be seen as a competitive game. You need to get a clue. The tops teams are all great, with many talented players. And as far as 91 being the best team in the future because of the addition of one player, that is totally premature. No one player will make any team the best team. There are many key positions that contribute to a great and balanced team.

AA - Channy

All good teams


You think Channy is putting his name on a B+Team, even Lynott??These guys produce D1 All Americans, so just stop! Not to mention 3 teams, NOT 4! Sorry you didn't get the email! Either way? Over 100 QUALITY kids at the tryout, easy to fill an AA(that's not changing) and add 2 "A's"! The summer will tell what they created!

As of right now there are 4 teams. Chucks snd Schwalje are both B teams. How can you say they are A teams when the teams teams aren't fully committed and they haven't played anyone. No team is A until they prove there an A team. Whatever makes you feel better...

I've been with Express for years, just calling it how it is... both teams are B and don't be surprised when more kids are added to the roster that aren't considered A or B.

Obviously you've never seen that one player out on the field. He makes your chosen Manhasset ones look like pee wees talent wise. But remember in seventh grade you were wsyl champs. Lol. Then couldn't get out of the first round of the playoffs in a real tournament. Igloo, 91 then express. Its ok. And by the way how did that absolute beat down by the dukes feel. Shines off boys.

They have 4 quality teams and 4 quality coaching staffs for each, so just stop! If the kids get quality instruction and improve, all good.

There is a definite pecking order as this is not PAL.

You are correct, you can't say what a new team, whom has not played together is going to turnout to be. Look what happened over at 9D1 with the Superteam, not so super.

You are further correct, its August! Rosters will change and change again in the spring. This is not just Express, happens in all clubs.

If you want to access potential of the teams:

2022 Channy - Unchanged AA
2022 Chucks - B+ to A potential
2022 Schwalje- B to A potential
2022 O'Reilly - doubt it will form due to lack of players. Can Express capture 100 players at 2022? If so, - C to B potential

Your very bitter ! I was there my kid was playing trying to earn a spot on the Channy team. As previously stated Express did NOT have hardly any of the Channy kids there. It was mainly kids that were trying to move up the depth chart ! Ripping on Express for getting beat up when they weren't playing to win is ridiculous !!

Are you going to invite all 38 players or just the chosen 14 who never came off the field? Probably should have trusted your bench more you wouldn't have lost in the first round in Md. At the real championship. Maybe next time you won't be embarrassed by the dukes also. And by the way channy always plays to win. Dukes were in a different class though. Oh well. Enjoy the replay! Enjoy those rings from the gumball machine!

My advice, save yourself the stress and accept the invites. All the teams will be good. Don't complain that my son should be here or there or tryouts were not fair. Or try to make calls and placed on a better team. If you are on Schwalji and your kid performs like he should be on AA, he will get a the look. Trust me that goes for Chuck as well. These kids have an VERY experienced varsity staff overseeing their development. It's a great pipeline to be in and all these kids will start maturing over the next few years and things will change. Take it to heart or with a grain of salt, but that's my view.

OK Express employee. Yeah right, I will jump on the invite not knowing who is really coaching the Chucks. Channy has his name all over the Chucks invite. He owns it. If he does not coach that team and dumps it on his son, well that's fraud to a tune $60,000.00. Doubt he would attempt that.

But the last time you played they smacked you around. How many excuses are you going to have? Channy didnt play to win, missing 6,7,8,all 10 starters. The page has turned. Dukes are and will be a better team whenever they play express from now on. And the dukes were missing quite a few players also. And still smacked you. No big deal. Hate to see how much you cry when igloo beats you(2 out of 3 times) and when jr. over at 91 steps on the field and dimantles you. The tears will be everywhere.

Nothing has changed except the kids are on summer break and having fun.

Dukes had most all of its top players. Good squad which consists of many elite players from the region and a handful who age up.

Remember when Express played Igloo last this summe, they won 8-4. And it was priceless when Primetime outplayed Igloo twice at the World Series and beat the 2021/2022 team in Semis.

Luck had nothing to do with it. With that stupid logic one could say that Igloo got lucky at Millon's tournament. Should Igloo have played out of bracket in the playoffs at Millon. What other tournament rules do you want to retroactively establish (consideriering that you are the authority - NOT). Express' performance in the World Series speaks for itself. What are you smoking/waxing?

All Igloo hate and jealousy. An inferiority complex. Remember when that team went 0 & 3 at Millon Elite 8 last year. Did anyone come on here and celebrate or rub it in? Answer is no. An number of the Igloo parents simply have no class. Hopefully the boys learn different ways and develop into better people. Still young and impressionable. Coach has his work cut out for him.

Just curious is that an accurate assessment of all the teams? My son was invited to play on Chuck's team. First year playing with Express. It looks to be two B teams. I was curious to know what skill level Chuck's team is at in relation to the other B team and the other teams.

Sooooooo NOT jealous! I would never want to be part of an organization that runs the way express runs. Guest players - 40 man roster - kids that live in Texas coming for certain tournaments. I would be embarrassed to be a part of that - sorry don't flatter yourself

Agreed.

Team selection this year seems odd, at best.

Both teams appear similar in talent with potential to grow.

In reality, You won't know until you see who accepts the invites, which families fully commit time to the program and how the teams play together.

Chucks have a great coaching staff.....time will tell.

And do you think that having tryouts for $100 without telling you the price isn't pathetic? The answer for price will be above $4000. That is a bet! And they have parents jammed up now in that they paid their money and limited their kids options. Without a doubt it is a dirtbag move.

Say what you want about them, but Igloo lead the way on this and now they are really the model. They got exclusive field access, now 91 bought the rights to a facility, its like the arms race to the most expensive. And these guys make $ on everything, and I mean everything.

Terrible but its a business now......it will be an arms race until the parents say enough is enough. Parents are too afraid to say no.

Great sport getting ruined by greed.

Imagine if people saved this amount for college! or tutoring!

Luckily, we can kinda swing the cost for now.

It certainly give wealthy families a huge advantage!

So your plan is to come on here and make up a number regarding tuition. I think you did that to scare people away so your son has a better chance. That is a dirtbag move. As for tryouts, $100 is quite common these days and no one says you have to take the spot. If you dont like the price go play somewhere else, luckily there are plenty of options. Better yet since lacrosse is such a money making machine why dont you start your own program. This way your kid can play for free and you dont have to try and scare people away from tryouts. You could even name them The Phantoms after the numbers you make up.

Who knows. But if economic pricing theory were true (supply and demand) that wouldn't be the case for club lax on LI. However, it is the upper tier club demand which drives up the pricing. You pay for a what is perceived to be a superior product. The sport is already socioeconomic as it was expensive for a lot people already. And you hear the same 2nd tier club feedback all the time... 1/2 the price, good coaching, and great families. But they seem to never take that next step to compete against the top clubs and as long as that divide exists, you will see more and more disparate pricing. I would love to see a 2nd tier club beat a top tier club and introduce more parity. All my opinion, but good subject to talk about.

Assuming Chuck practices with Channy's AA team, the practices will be frequent, fast paced and the coaching will be good. However, based on past experience when the 2022 B team has practiced with the AA team, the AA players will get preference in terms of reps etc in the different drills.

The bigger issue will be what happens at games and tournaments. Who will be the game day coaches for the Chuck team? This has been the biggest problem in the past. Unlikely, that Channy and Lynott Sr. will be coaching this team at tournaments given their commitments to their existing teams.

Please explain it to me.if you jump from club to club and have a different couch every year how can your evaluate your child's progress. Do college coaches really care what club they played for! And did you know that four years of D1 college lacrosse adds ten years to your body age! Nobody else is doing this to your kid but you!

The win at any cost theory of lacrosse is not teaching our kids any values and or morals! We have enough talent on Long Island to beat anyone in the country ! As was proven in the Warrior All Star games ! Keep Long Island teams with OUR kids !

Actually experiencing different coaches will add to a players growth and with regards to college coach caring were you play club is ridiculous and the only one's pushing that line are the club's themselves. High Schools you play at might have more of an impact especially with new guidelines for commitments. If you are good enough they will come. Best thing a young player can do is play multi-sports .

Or
1.
2.
3.
4.

I think there is some apprehension and some declines are likely causing roster shifts. But in the end these teams should be good for what they are. They are all 2nd teams and in 10 months your son is hopefully better and ready for HS ball.

None of the designations - AA, A, & B - are about making anyone feel better. Keep telling yourself that, though, so it makes YOU feel better. It's actually all about a logical approach to moving towards a better governed youth sport. Like youth hockey has done.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2022 - 8th Grade Fall 2017/Summer 2018 - 08/13/17 04:16 PM
Bottom line with all this craziness is I find it's better to just stay put. If you have your son about to be on his 3rd new team in less than 4 years - then you should probably start to stay put, especially if you did the multi team tryout. I say that because at tryouts I have never seen an A team player slip through. It's NOT a case of my son can play with them, it's showing enough that the addition will improve the team.. Sorry, it's true. And better the team, the harder it is make it. End result is that the team your son landed on, is very likely the right spot. But some will call, text and email incessantly to prove history wrong. I did his with my older son and it was a mistake. Don't get mixed up in A, B, C or anything else. Just let them get better and get on a team where his is one of the better players. Not the bottom player on the best team. He won't improve, trust me. And don't say the training is so good its worth it.

“It is a tenet of good coaching that you get kids into games,” writes Jim Thompson, founder and CEO of the Positive Coaching Alliance, a US Lacrosse national partner. “Most of the benefits of playing a sport are tied to competing in games.”

That's the problem with lacrosse no organization is running the show. US lacrosse is on the sidelines. The clubs control everything even the tournaments makes and the recruiting events. Way too much money passing hands. They will never get on line with regulations

AA is the best. Followed by A good but not great. Then B. Good but needs improvement though compete with A.


None of the designations - AA, A, & B - are about making anyone feel better. Keep telling yourself that, though, so it makes YOU feel better. It's actually all about a logical approach to moving towards a better governed youth sport. Like youth hockey has done. [/quote]better


Better governed? you are crazy!!!! These clubs care only about the $$$$$$ A, B, C or AA, A, B doesn't matter. Top Team, Next team and team after that. The labels are for the parents so than can brag!

That's the prevailing fallacy: that somehow if lax was better organized and governed, that the big clubs would suddenly make less money. There is not some limited money balloon that all of the teams must get a piece of pie from - if the sport grows, which can only happen with maturity, the pie gets bigger and the money increases. It is akin to an economy and wealth creation, albeit there are too many people that don't understand that aspect of wealth creation either! The bottom line is that big clubs will continue to make as much, if not more, than they do now, while smaller clubs will also make money.

They don't lose to town teams. Get your facts straight. Good team 2022, adding a few more pieces. Let's see where it goes this season. Lastly, 3D is a major recruiting tourney in the HS ages.

Sure - anyone NOT affiliated with NLF should just quit the sport and do something else! The pompousness displayed by what seems like way too many on these boards is sickening.

Let me get this stright so I understand. Everybody fights every year to get on the A team that supposed to be the killer team. And every parent thinks their kid is going to play D1. Do you realize the colleges don't give a crap who your kid plays for or how many championships they won at 13! They only care about the finished product. By 9th grade weither your kid is on A or B if he is not in the top 5 on the team it's not gonna happen!

What I have learned is that people are more attacted to have their kids vplaying with better kids. The AA, A, B stuff is factor as well. But a lot of money and time Is being spent and the return should be good coaching and every kid at this level should be able to catch and throw and have an IQ for the game.

Not concerned about top 10 D1 schools. The bottom half of D1, or any of the NESCAC schools are awesome. When your grades are A you have a whole lot of choices!

Scand just won't let it go with the outlaws. Please go back to your city team. They lost 1 starter who was hurt most of last year. And 1 starter nobody wanted back. They've been replaced by equal caliber or better players. All the others were backups who barely played. They have definitely gotten better. But you will keep bashing like you know what's going on.

Why would it take so long? Are they agonizing owed who to pick as the 3rd line Middie? Get it done so folks can settle in, or more importantly scramble if a kid needs to connect with another team.

The bottom line is that they lost some players and gained some players just like every other club on LI. I think they will be better this year but I also think every other club will be better. I know Igloo and Express picked up some players and 91 picked up JR so its going to be a fun year - Crazy amount of talent at this age.

Their best player ? Granted a top player that left is very good - the team was without him due to an injury for several top tournaments at the end of the season - so they learned to play / adjust without him. He will be missed.. but the level of talent coming in and the volume of talent will more than make up for it with depth that was badly needed. Keep bashing because that is what you do and let the kids play. Just don't lose to them in 2018 - because that would be the end of the world for you - right ?

Yes he is better than your son, He will be missed considering he accounted for a large portion of your goals until his injury! You certainly didn't get any new parts that were that good I was at the tryout and that is why we will not be playing there !

Yes - he is better than my son, but this team does not have one single "top player" as you suggest... they contributed as a team - each brought something different to the team. To suggest that there is one single best player on the team is ridiculous including anyone who has departed or is remaining.

Players move from team to team every year. Any move to one of the top 3 is in fact moving to a better team. Is that so bad? It's why 2nd tier clubs A teams can't ever compete with the big boys, because the better kids (parents) want to be on the best team they can. Same is true for 2nd teams, the best kid (parent) on the 2nd team cares about one thing... being on the A team. And when they don't move up or get the invite they hound the director for weeks looking for answers in the hope of the getting the spot of the first kid that says no that made the team. SMH...

That make no sense? Why would a director even talk to a parent after he is placed on a team unless director said to follow up?

Lacrosse parents really are crazy. You love the kid when he's on your team than call him over rate when he loves on. Really is pathetic when you think about it. So much animosity toward a child.

My 2 cents: the parent came on here and called his kid the best. He opened himself up to the criticism.

Only One good player left Outlaws. He was injured most of summer
He will be missed. As for the attackman who left, Thank you, Not the kid he was all right, but losing the dad was a blessing
Say what you want about Outlaws, they improved, and will again only play the top tournaments.
Think practices start next week

I have no dog in this fight.

But I must call you out & stick up for this 12-13yr old boy who happens to play the sport of lacrosse on a summer team.

Singling out a 12-13 yr old boy? You are a disgusting cyber bully.

Occasionally there are players that read these boards (and respond sounding like a parent). Who knows what kind of damage a statement like that can do to him? What was your confidence level at 12-13?

Pathetic.

And when they don't move up or get the invite they hound the director for weeks looking for answers in the hope of the getting the spot of the first kid that says no that made the team. SMH...


That make no sense? Why would a director even talk to a parent after he is placed on a team unless director said to follow up?


Because client retention.

Calling a 13 year kid overrated..pathetic on your part.


My 2 cents: the parent came on here and called his kid the best. He opened himself up to the criticism.


Really. Some person makes a statement and it's okay . Take the high road and just move on. But somebody can't process that a statement was and felt they needed to criticize a 13 year olds abilty.

Nowhere in any of these posts does the person say that it is their child ! It mentions him being better than other peoples kids but no mention of it being his/her child. Lets all move on from ripping parents and children over a kids game !

This outlaws 2022 Team with 100% be improved. Upgrade at goalie kid from 91. Two west I slip midfielders who are studs. Two empire defense men one argued to be the best on the island. An express and an igloo attackmen both being added to the roster as well.

No one will be able to tell how good any of these teams will be, but I'm looking forward to the competitive atmosphere that will come in the upcoming month. Though we all compete with each other to almost pathetic ends that's why college coaches come to see these Long Island boys play. They love the competiveness and you don't have to be on a top 5 team to go top 10 d1. I will promise you that. The best kids get seen and the best kids get recruited. Everyone has a spot to play in college. Just have to find the right fit. Let your kids do what they want to do and stop playing through them.

As for the player who left the outlaws there is no need to bash a 12-13 year old kid. He's an amazing talent and will be missed. Stinks we didn't have him most of summer but I hope he recovers well from his injury and has success in the future.

What is the first fall tournament we will see the top teams on the island at?

Good honest post and finally an outlaw parent who admits that they are not in the top 5. No igloo or express A kids left fornoutlaws so must of picked up some B kids that got cut. Regardless I am sure there will be a tournament in the fall with 91, express, igloo, legacy and igloo B that you can bring your son to and watch the best LI teams

Was at the 91 tryout yesterday. Spallina says he will be helping coach the 2022AA team and JR will be playing with them 80% of the time. It looks like the AA is going to be adding size and speed at all positions. They are going to be much better than last years Super Team. A team is also going to be much better. they are are also adding a 3rd team.

That's always a concern when you go beyond 2. Need to have a coach that is 100% committed. I think one of the most frustrating things in club lax is when your son is not on the 1st team and the 1st team is practicing and getting better and your team is shut down for winter and spring and the coach doesn't know how to reply to emails.

It was the kid who played for Igloo A in sixth grade and took last year off to play hockey. Good pickup but doesn't hurt Team Penguin at all.

I have a serious question. When these travel teams have a tryout is there even spots open or do they just take your money in hopes your child can make the team? I have seen too many tryouts where kids not just mine had played very well and did not make the team? What are they looking for?

most teams at this age are taking return players and there are not a lot of spots open( if any) or they are looking for specific positions to fill and probably already know which kids are coming ...

In all fairness, the coaches (and organizations) also know who is actually looking to move from the top teams and who is there for the workout - so if your son is already on a good team and doesn't get an offer it may be because they don't think he would take it anyway (this is when having a frank discussion helps). Seen this at the Express and 91 tryouts where evaluators have said not to bother with a kid with a certain helmet because "if he was serious about coming over here, we would have known about it already."

Spots are always open. Some are earned, but in most cases the club knows a kid is coming down because most of the better players are known. I doubt Express AA added any offensive players that will contribute. And if they did add, they are just parents who politically got their kid on the team. That means they will likely struggle to see the field.

Hilarious how folks put down other teams, other children who are 12/13. If 1 organization was perfect there would not be 20 teams on Long island. Worry about your own child and your own coach. Perhaps look in the mirror and let it go Dad. Legacy will have a great year like they did last year. Great group of parents. Great group of Children. Great group of coaches. Good luck to all the boys this year.

My son was picked on this team, from what I understand they basically kept same kids plus or minus a few. So if they play in a B division we will win a lot of games. If we play in a A division we will lose a lot of games. I guess we see what happens. Great coaching is why i'm staying!

Good Team, Well coached, Lots of Practices, Tuition includes winter DLT training which is awesome. I also think they be practicing with the AA Team this year. If you want your kid to get better it's a good solid choice.

I have a son at this age and all the kids seem to know each other, This is what I am hearing;

1. Express A - didn't make many changes that will effect them. 1st team will be very good as usually but a lot of the second teamers left or will be on there B Team.

2. Igloo - added a few player but i don't think they will have a big impact, already a very solid team.

3. 91 - probably made the most changes, lost a lot of players and added some real talent. Only 22/21 players on the team maybe even less. Won't be surprised if they are the team to beat.

4. Outlaws - Lost 1 good player but added a bunch of good players - significant upgrade from last year.

5. Leeegeeeceee - added a bunch of players from 91 AA will be much improved.

Thoughts? Let's keep it factually and positive. Should be a fun year with this group.

Here is the frustrating part with these teams. They are not good enough to compete with the Top 5 teams in the AA bracket. They kill all the B teams that they play so those games suck to watch. There is very little competitive lacrosse in this bracket on Long Island !

There are plenty of tournaments that have A team divisions that are not AA teams - it's like the whole lax world wants to pretend that there is not a whole swath of talent between AA teams and true B teams. It's a major reason youth lax is so far down the curve when compared to other sports. The A teams from many of the non-Igloo/Express/91 clubs are very good, and are not B (talent) teams.

When you say "true A teams", with respect to Outlaws are you referring to their Select or Gold team? Similar question Re: Express - which team(s)? Even under a properly structured talent system, which lax does NOT even come close to having (!), there will be weaker A teams that will not have much success against other A teams, especially the stronger A teams. That's the way it's supposed to work! That does not mean the weak A team is B, nor does it mean the strong A team is really AA. A weak A team should probably play a mix of tourneys both at the B and A level (more A than B, though) - there are benefits in doing both for team and player development. Similarly, a strong A team should play in both A and AA tourneys. A strong B team should probably play in an A tourney, but stick mostly to B tourneys. Until people are honest about assessing teams and creating tournaments properly around talent levels, the lax tourney world will continue to be a mess. An age-based system for all pre-HS levels would also help that problem.

Word is the precking order will be the same. Give me a break with these additions and we got this and they got that. Unless the top kids from the big 3 move, it's not changing the overall landscape. Will a team give a tough game to the top 3, sure. But in the end, nothing is shifting I'm a significant way. Fact! If your son's team was B last year, it's B this year.

Ha ha...true A teams like outlaws, outlaws is a solid B team. Always lost to 91, always will. Never beat igloo, express etc. and never will. Outlaws are somewhere between 4-8 on LI and not close to top 10 in LI/Maryland.

The top 6 teams in Long Island will stay top 6 with minimal changes. In Long Island, the top 6 teams are as follows:
AA (not in order)
- 9D1 AA
- Express AA
- Igloo AA

Outlaws Select somewhere between AA and A
- better than most A

A Team
- 9D1 B (2022A)
- Igloo B (probably also A team)
- Legacy AA

AA teams - are all great, any team can beat the other depending on weather, if a kid is missing, if coach decides to play his top talent and push the gas pedal, if coach wants to rotate more of their players, etc. This is a fact. Outlaws Select is right behind these teams and may be able to beat one of the AA teams if they get real lucky.

A Team
9D1 2022A soundly defeated all other teams, struggled against AA, lost to Outlaws Select while putting up a good game. Igloo A is also a solid team, should play 9D1 2022 for a good team. 9D1 and Igloo are the only teams that could hold any talent in their second teams. Outlaws, 9D1A and Igloo A will struggle because they can't compete with the top 3 AA teams, but are significantly better than other teams on Long Island. This year, Express is going to try a second team (and 3rd and 4th team), but other than their AA, too many teams and too much watering down of talent. Legacy showed up with a strong WSYL team, but that was different than their winter box top team.

If you are cracking on AA, you are just jealous.
If you are cracking on Outlaws - you are pretty sad because they are a great, solid team but are no where near AA.
If you are cracking on 9D1A and Igloo A - you just have not followed them throughout the season.

My son played 9D1A. Completely new team this year. Too few practices, we were promised more, but that is life. We are clearly second to the 9D1AA team. We could not complete at the AA level with one practice per week, no box program, only 1 head coach and 1 daddy coach at each game/tourney. Sometimes we only had 1 coach at scrimmages/tourneys. That was the most disappointing part of the year. We mostly destroyed teams from outside long island and other club teams on long island, so there was no competition there. It did not matter, our Coach kept us playing at the AA level and we got beaten up, but our kids learned and had positive attitudes.

We lost to Outlaws, close game but they clearly beat us. We had a very poor showing at WSYL because we took only our own kids, dropped the older kids and played by the rules. 9D1AA also took our highest scorer and he had the winning score for AA at WSYL. Also we did not have a box team, so we struggled in the beginning of Spring. Now the good - The parents were extremely nice, the kids were great to each other and overall had a great experience. My son learned a lot, got better and still wanted to play 9D1A. The 91 organization could have made it better and are trying to do so this coming year. Would like to see 9D1A play Igloo A and Outlaws more.

It is not about wins, losses, who is better, who is not. It is not about parents whining on these forums. I would rather hear more true stories like this so I understand what life is like on the other 2022 teams. If you notice, many other graduating years have supplemental tryouts because they don't have enough kids or talent. Our kids age group does not have supplemental tryouts because we have too many kids and too much talent at this age group. lets hear some real stories/experiences from parents on these top teams.

If this is true you would hope the organization does the right thing and relinquishes these coaches of there position with the organization.


Empire is a sinking ship that will NEVER reach the AA standard. They have mediocre coaching at best!

Empire Green..Any more info on this team. I had heard great things about the players and coaches. Are the a high "A" team?

All the Long Island teams are good. It really boils down to:
- where/when the coach holds practices
- who the coach is
- what other kids are on the team with your son
- if your son is happy and wants to play for the team (vs if you want your son to play for the team)

Everyone else falls in just below those 7 (not 6) teams above. Empire A is still an A team, but clearly below those teams listed above. They are more like Hitmen A, TrueBlue A, Ducks A, etc. These are all great teams, definite separation from the top 3-4 above and the next 3.

More like Igloo B, Express Schwalje, 9!A

There needs to be more teams in the tweener group. This now called single A group needs to grow. Because 9! campbell lost 14-1 to Channy, but can't play in B

Single A (not ranking, just grouping)
Igloo, clearly the best
9! Campbell, I guess now 9! A
Express Schwalije
FIGee
Empire Green

Question as far as these rankings of the A's not AA

I am hearing that fl$ lost 3 of their top 4 players, Igloo lost their #1 goalie, Empire Green lost at least 5 and Campbell lost its #1 Goalie. With those things being said does it bring the A group closer to teams like the Ducks top team, True Blue and Hitmen?

A Team
- 9D1 B (2022A)
- Igloo B (probably also A team)

AA teams - are all great, any team can beat the other depending on weather, if a kid is missing, if coach decides to play his top talent and push the gas pedal, if coach wants to rotate more of their players, etc. This is a fact. Outlaws Select is right behind these teams and may be able to beat one of the AA teams if they get real lucky.

A Team
9D1 2022A soundly defeated all other teams, struggled against AA, lost to Outlaws Select while putting up a good game. Igloo A is also a solid team, should play 9D1 2022 for a good team. 9D1 and Igloo are the only teams that could hold any talent in their second teams. Outlaws, 9D1A and Igloo A will struggle because they can't compete with the top 3 AA teams, but are significantly better than other teams on Long Island. This year, Express is going to try a second team (and 3rd and 4th team), but other than their AA, too many teams and too much watering down of talent. Legacy showed up with a strong WSYL team, but that was different than their winter box top team.

If you are cracking on AA, you are just jealous.
If you are cracking on Outlaws - you are pretty sad because they are a great, solid team but are no where near AA.
If you are cracking on 9D1A and Igloo A - you just have not followed them throughout the season.

My son played 9D1A. Completely new team this year. Too few practices, we were promised more, but that is life. We are clearly second to the 9D1AA team. We could not complete at the AA level with one practice per week, no box program, only 1 head coach and 1 daddy coach at each game/tourney. Sometimes we only had 1 coach at scrimmages/tourneys. That was the most disappointing part of the year. We mostly destroyed teams from outside long island and other club teams on long island, so there was no competition there. It did not matter, our Coach kept us playing at the AA level and we got beaten up, but our kids learned and had positive attitudes.

We lost to Outlaws, close game but they clearly beat us. We had a very poor showing at WSYL because we took only our own kids, dropped the older kids and played by the rules. 9D1AA also took our highest scorer and he had the winning score for AA at WSYL. Also we did not have a box team, so we struggled in the beginning of Spring. Now the good - The parents were extremely nice, the kids were great to each other and overall had a great experience. My son learned a lot, got better and still wanted to play 9D1A. The 91 organization could have made it better and are trying to do so this coming year. Would like to see 9D1A play Igloo A and Outlaws more.

It is not about wins, losses, who is better, who is not. It is not about parents whining on these forums.

Holy crap, what a waste of time...same old thing, igloo and express the best, 91 and lega-sea right below and then jump ball on the B teams and that's just LI. Outlaws, igloo B, and others are solid legit B team s

All Fake News. Winky has brought in some good kids to replace the few that left. So did Igloo B. Neither lost their best four kids - sorry "leaving for a new team" dads.

The reality is that after the top five, you have Campbell, Igloo B, maybe Express Schwalje, maybe a few others who will all play in AA tournaments and will do well to hover around .500 for the year and their kids will all get better. And next year, you'll all be back here trashing every team on LI.

LegaCy was awful last year. Coach barely showed up. Didn't care. We were killed by express and igloo. Lost 3x to outlaws. Last one 7-1 in an embarrassment. After that the head coach tuned out. Stop lumping them with the top teams. And yes, my son has moved on. Never again.

91A last season was a terrible team and if they took back most of the kids from last season they will be the same garbage team. Coaching was bad. They will not be able to compete with any of the top teams much like Empire green.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2022 - 8th Grade Fall 2017/Summer 2018 - 08/25/17 01:55 PM
Empire Green is on the low end of the A bracket. 9D1A is clearly in the upper end of A. Questionable Igloo B vs 9D1A. Both teams did not play each other and that was a shame. Parents wanted that game. 9D1A coach did not avoid playing Igloo B, but did not go out of way to play Igloo B. Outlaws Select is either bottom of AA or top of A. I could sit here and say 9D1A played Empire Green in Fall last year and soundly beat them, but one time beating a team does not meet they are better. I see parents on these posts saying this team won this one game back in 2016 so they are better. That is ridiculous. But your statement here clearly shows you are a bitter Empire Green player. Some really good talent from Empire Green left and went to 9D1 last season. The best player from Empire Green went to 9D1A last season, then moved to 9D1AA this coming year. Get over it. Kids move teams. Two years later.

Why call 9D1A terrible, then say Empire Green is better when they lost to 9D1 in 1 game, other than bitterness.

Empire is increasing their fee up by $928 for the boys and $550 for the girls. Last year, Empire had 16 boys’ teams from 3rd-Varsity. Multiply 16 X 20 players per team X $928 = $296,960
3 girls’ teams $550 X 60 players total = $33,000
For any non-math majors, that’s a $329,960 increase, not including the younger groups.

Enough with the fees, it's a business, you have choices. This is club lax and you shouldn't do it by what is convenient or cheap or who can carpool. Otherwise, stay with the local town club teams they are great options and a lot are as good as a B team at a club. At least it's close and you're playing with kids you know and potential coaches down the road. But if you want club, seek out the best team your son can make and travel to that location to practice. You mind fees and the extra travel to practice if it's worth it.

Valid points, but considering how much quality lax there is on LI and the number of clubs, you've hit upon opportunities for existing and new clubs - there are pockets of locales where if you offered a quality option, you could cater to a whole swath of players that are currently driving all over God's creation to play club. I get that field space is limited and hard to come by, but it would seem to me that this is a rare business where where the owners expect everyone to come to them as opposed to possibly looking at where their customers are and looking for options to bring that product closer to their customers.

Nope, I travel 40 minutes to practice. Because it's the best team he made with the best coaching. I was giving advice because often people choose convenience. I understand that it's hard to juggle travel and a full schedule. I am simply saying don't settle for a product the under delivers because it's close to home. And if you cant travel, stay with a town travel hybrid.

You are delusional ! We all settle for a product that under delivers. I have seen plenty of kids that "play" for a top team and they still have not gotten any better since they were younger. They still have the same bad habits like hanging the stick, or not knowing where they should be. Its pretty pathetic that we all pay thousands for a sport that will never make any money for out kids !

I have seen at tourneys this past season GC34, Eagle Elite, Sachem Rising, Three Village, Smithtown, Vikings, RVC Futures, etc. It's becoming more and more available. I am of the opinion, sometimes these are good options if your son is not on the A team. If it run correctly, it works. If it's half baked and the coaches would rather be at the beach than coaching, it's a waste.

Successful Towns Like WM, Smithtown, GC, CSH, WI to name a few have solid lacrosse infrastructure and consistently put out strong players. Also despite losing solid players to teams like SA and Chaminade they still remain highly competitive. Club has it's place but is not as relevant for these Towns especially given new college commitment rules. However not all towns have this so CLUB is good option. Bottom line Lacrosse is a great sport the more that play the better for the GAME.

At least it's close and you're playing with kids you know and potential coaches down the road. But if you want club, seek out the best team your son can make and travel to that location to practice. You mind fees and the extra travel to practice if it's worth it.


Spoken from someone who's kid did not get any better writing checks to club teams. You do it so you can have the status of saying your kid plays for XYZ lacrosse. That make you a fool my friend !


Nope, I travel 40 minutes to practice. Because it's the best team he made with the best coaching. I was giving advice because often people choose convenience. I understand that it's hard to juggle travel and a full schedule. I am simply saying don't settle for a product the under delivers because it's close to home. And if you cant travel, stay with a town travel hybrid.


Town team travel is not available to most locales . . .



I have seen at tourneys this past season GC34, Eagle Elite, Sachem Rising, Three Village, Smithtown, Vikings, RVC Futures, etc. It's becoming more and more available. I am of the opinion, sometimes these are good options if your son is not on the A team. If it run correctly, it works. If it's half baked and the coaches would rather be at the beach than coaching, it's a waste.


You've listed ~7 town teams - there are 125 school districts on LI!

I said teams I saw. And I was just making a point that you in my opinion you shouldn't make a decision solely based on convenience. However, I know it's not that simple. A lot factors weigh into these decisions. If a good town club program exists, it's a good option vs a B team. Further, if a better option exists but is too far, it's worth thinking that through based on what you want from a club experience. I think of all time and money we all invest in this, if I have to drive 30 extra minutes for the best situation, it's worth it. Now I am driving to Westchester, no. But a trip cross county lines is not a big deal.

So neither Schwajle or Chucks rosters are final, not a game played but Schwajle is the better team?? NO ONE knows what teams are going to be good this year in AA, A or B! The Channy team is the Channy team but after that, it's a toss up!

How would you have any insight to the rosters. And Schwaljle is supposed to be the better team. But who knows until they play the games.

Outlaws suck, the player they picked up is very good. But they are the least improved team of the year. Express, igloo, 91, legacee, igloo B, express b, outlaws, in that order and that's just LI. Another 7-10 teams better than outlaws in the Tri-state, pa and md.

I'm an express parent(chucks) and you sir are unhinged! What kind of savage says 13 years olds suck! No one knows how are any of the teams will play, until we play! We took a chance this year with our sons team and we will let it play out. If he personally gets better, it will be great! That's what all of us looking for, to see our boys grow, develop and enjoy the game! We get to ride with them and see some great games and hopefully meet some nice, DECENT people along the way too!

Just show up at the Tri Star October Fest. It will be the best the tourney to play in this fall. Moving the date should spark the interest of out state teams. Will probably have greatest depth for A & B and nice finale to fall.

My son attended the Elite 80 last year. It was very organized, all D1 coaches advertised to appeare were there. The coaches were very into it and engaging. A lot of touches - drills, skill work, and scrimmages. Competition was good. Facilities were nice - easy to get to. For an 8th grader not sure what else you would want to consider.

One may argue competition was not great - are people traveling from the West coast and Mid Atlantic. He may see some - but for the most part you will get Tri-State kids and a few Northeast. But that should not effect you.

Nope. I have 2 son's and we are in Maryland. My son's have played against the 91s, Express, Igloo's etc. If it is a glorified rec situation, not sure we would come up for a day thing but if they get kids from the various LI teams, it will be worth it

Practice starts this weekend. All the talk of adds, talent, departures, etc will come to an end. You'll see a lot of the same first liners and same talent level. One or two exceptions, but that's the max. And the top teams will all play each other very competitively.

That's great. I enjoyed the last few weeks of summer. And loved not having to leave the beach, pool, etc to make practice. To each his own.

Practices start this weekend?? We've been practicing for 3 wks already . . .


That's great. I enjoyed the last few weeks of summer. And loved not having to leave the beach, pool, etc to make practice. To each his own.


You too. I am sure I saw you at the beach enjoying the last few weeks of the summer. I can't believe I didn't stick around for a few weeks of lacrosse practice. All I am going to have now is memories of traveling with my kids for 2 weeks when I could have stayed local for a few hours of lacrosse practice in August for a sport that is played in the Spring and next summer. Oh well, maybe next summer.

Football practice started August 1st, so lacrosse had exactly zero to do with anything in terms of summer schedule...

Really, you must be from MD because it is not worth the travel. Firstly, it's football and soccer season for middle school secondly, travel to MD to play 9th and 10th graders.
Enough already!

And yet Express and Igloo both went last year and did well. I'm sure they'll both go back again.

Are any teams signed up for the 9D1 Fall Elite Face Off on October 7?

I could be wrong, but I have never seen a Maryland team come up to a fall LI tourney. Million brought his Maryland Stars team up for a playday, that's all I recall. They swept Express, Smash and United during that trip. Hence, make those teams come here, no reason to leave the tristate in the fall.

LOL, Dukes, it's a handpicked All-Star team they should be the best. It's not like they practice and send 10 months together. But since you're flexing. I will say, based on an eye test Express got better, believe it. A their 2nd and 3rd teams will become A teams as the season progresses.

Now thats funny! Best team in the country? Winning a game or 2 at the end of 10 month grind for all other teams. Lets not forget that if any players from other top teams from MD,NY,PA decide to try out for Dukes the bulk of that team will be gone -- Better yet, keep the same team and the TOP players from other squads get together and see who comes out on top.

I will tell you this. All the Express teams practice at the same time and from what I saw and others are saying the CHUCK team will be the 2nd team and Schwaijle team will be the 3rd team. Much more talent on the CHUCK team then the others.

Way to stir it up. Chucks practices on Saturday and the rest of the 2022s practice on Sunday. Not sure what you saw, unless you went to watch a practice because you were bored. Both are decent teams, enjoy the season

The other 2022 teams practiced on Sunday. Still wondering the real order. Did anyone really see the schwajle team? Are they really the second team? Reality is the Chucks team is B. It's made up of a bunch of kids who were on Express O'reilly last year and new kids from Bluefish, Outlaws B, and a few other Bs. There was an Igloo helmet too. Assume he was cut from Igloo B (which is a decent team), but he was cut. So maybe it's B+...

Done with that subject. We spent pages on it after the tryouts. I would list them, but somebody will just challenge it. How about it's Channy and everybody else.

Club and High School coaches nominate then they decide how many slots to allot each club/highschool and what positions need to be filled. This is the only case where playing on the BEST club team in the age group means something because that team will get more slots.

Not really. But if a club has better relatiionships and better ties, I'd rather be there. As long as my kid plays, that's most important to me.

Can someone from each of these teams share with the rest of us which fall tournaments each one is playing? None of them (other than LegaCCCC) has updated their website yet.

And LegaCCCC lists the Columbus Day Invitational, Blatant, Octoberfest and some NAFLI Invitational in Delaware.

That list is a joke right? This has to be legacy parents trying to make themselves relevant. There's a reason why those 9d1 kids came over-they never saw the field. Fall ball means nothing anyway.
I am going to have to disagree with you saying that Fall Ball is meaningless. Maybe you can argue that at the youth level but from a college recruiting perspective, especially for the HS graduates aspiring to play collegiately, the Fall is very important and is their chance to get exposure. And besides the recruiting aspect of things, Fall Ball is a great way to enhance your skills and get prepared for the 'official' lax season and then for the summer tournament circuit.... Same reason why there is Fall Ball in college.

You are the definition of a troublemaker! Let them begin to play the games and then we will see. A lot of movement of players give them a chance to play first.




Let them play first. There has been significant amount of players who jumped to other clubs. More than normal in my opinion.
These are probably the top teams but no way you can predict the order in September.

I will tell you this. All the Express teams practice at the same time and from what I saw and others are saying the CHUCK team will be the 2nd team and Schwaijle team will be the 3rd team. Much more talent on the CHUCK team then the others.


Did you think Channy was gonna set his kid up for failure? No way ! So now all the other parents will be up in arms that "little Johnny" is not on the best team !


I have heard people say that they are very happy so far with the team and coaching.


So far so good......with more practices than advertised!

This is an 8th grade forum. Doesn't mean much to 8th graders. But yrs you are 100% correct about the older kids.
Agreed.

Nice list Mr. Pen-go-in. Are your boys going to actually play the rest of us this year or are you going to continue to enter tournaments that nobody has heard of and then bring in guest players when it counts? Watch out, there's a new sheriff in town and he won't stand for those shenanigans that you're used to pulling.

It's only meaningless if your son's team wins or loses 10-1. If it's solid competition and the kids are playing at a high level, I think that is worth it.

Channy Sr. & Lynott Sr. were coaching the Chucks. They also added practices so we shall see. I'm sure he will move kids between teams, only Channy knows!


Doubt there will be any movement. The AA team had 12 poles and 35 kids at practice the other day. They can form another A team by splitting themselves up.

Unless your kid is on the first two lines it would be a waste of time playing on that team! 10,000 to ride the bench, I don't think so!
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2022 - 8th Grade Fall 2017/Summer 2018 - 09/20/17 05:40 PM
Chucks picked up a few kids who did not play much on 91A and 91 Academy (Development Team), Outlaws B, and Legacee. Unless Channy drops AA players onto that team, they will struggle to even be on this list.

Top Teams (In any order)
Igloo AA
Express AA
91AA

Next Teams (In any order)
Outlaws A
91A
Igloo A
ExpressA (depending on who Channy drops onto this team)
LegaceeA (maybe)

All others. Outlaws wanna be AA, but they are clearly a top A team. IglooA and 91A are close to AA, some kids could make those teams, but they are not there yet. ExpressA - Who knows? Do they have 3 teams? 4 teams? Huge money grab. Everyone wanted to join after his WSYL win, but he is not adding to his AA because AA is all he focuses on.

You heard incorrectly. Can you define money grab? We have a coach with over 20 years experience and we are practicing twice a week and playing in 3 tourneys. I think that's the same as some and more than most.

Well, K is in the wind and kid is not on the roster.

Both teams practiced last night on the same same field. Very clear where the Chucks stand in pecking order. Keep believing what you want.

Keep stirring the pot.....

So what team does your son play for? Saw the Chucks team practicing last night and they looked pretty darn good. They have some really good players on that team.

You keep telling yourself that - my kids have never had a daddy coach, and there was never kids who couldn't catch and throw. Personally, during the fall I only want a practice every other week and I don't want any fall tourneys - my boys are playing football 5+ days a week! During the winter, they'll do winter workouts with their lax team 1x per wk for 10 wks, but they're playing basketball and wrestling. Again, I don't want spring tourneys as they play school ball already 5x per wk and they are practicing at least every other wk with club until May. But you keep ramming that down your kids' throats. Sometime less is more!

You've got your kids playing football 5 times a week?!?!? You can stop talking now, no interest in anything you have to say. Apparently you're still living in 1985. Maybe you haven't heard by now that football has a direct correlation with serious brain trauma. Anyone who would allow their child to participate in that brutal sport might as well keep all of their opinions to themselves as they are totally worthless. You should read the BU study immediately.

Well it's why some people purchase a Toyota and some purchase a Lexus. I drive a Toyota, point is the consumer can buy what he or she wants to buy. The point I'll agree with is roster size. 8 mids, 6 poles, 6 attack is ideal for club, in my opinion.

Schwalje team looked good w/ stick skills etc...My son practiced before them and hung around for a bit while he hung with some friends chatting..Please stop with this Chuck team..HE will NEVER be there..Great Channy was there..Doesnt mean a thing..You just wasted ur money on that team..Truth hurts

In case you've been living under a rock, ALL MS and HS sports teams practice or play games 5 - 6 times a wk. You either play a play a school sport or you don't - football, like every other sport in MS is M- F. You can choose to not have your son play, but critiquing all the parents of the ~3M US youth football players as having no basis to speak is probably not going to get YOU much respect. And perhaps you probably haven't noticed the fairly large overlap of football and lacrosse players, so you are basically alienating a MAJORITY of people on this board with your 'assessment'.

And, having played football all the way through the NCAA level, as well as coaching football and lacrosse at the youth level, I've got more to offer on this topic than your casual, at-a-distance reading about it. Lastly, I've already read the study, and this is an 8th grade board - the BU study particularly focuses on the effects of playing before the age of 12 - what age are typical eighth graders in NY??

I understand that it's an 8th grade board but thanks for explaining that as well as how MS and HS sports work. Did your son just start playing this year? I seriously doubt that. Given the self selection of who reads and posts on this board, I bet it's safe to guess you had your son playing tackle at the first opportunity - 3rd grade. Tell me I'm wrong. And if I am wrong, then why didn't he play tackle in 3rd grade? I'm sure he was playing lax back then.

I am absolutely fine alienating all 3 million of those kids' parents. I guarantee you that you are in the MINORITY. I live in one of the major lax towns on the Island and the vast MAJORITY of the MS and HS lacrosse players play soccer or run cross country in the Fall. My son is also on one of the best club teams in this age group, which draws from towns all over, and only 3 out of the 22 boys on his team play football. Anytime it has come up in conversation with those three parents, I've told them straight to their faces how I feel about it.

Finally, I would venture to guess that for most of the people reading this post, their sons have a significantly higher chance of playing college lacrosse than football. Why waste time with a sport where the downside (brain injuries and other physical issues) is so much greater than the upside? Life is hard enough with a functioning brain.

Maybe if your kid learned at an early age how to tackle you wouldnt be so worried abt concussions..By the way dummy...more kids get concussions in soccer than football.FACT look it up... please look it up...get off your soap box NO ONE CARES WHAT U THINK! just ur loser opinion

It's fine that you have your strongly stated opinions about football.And it is a sport that is prone to a lot injuries. Major steps are being taking by all the stakeholders (NFL down to youth) to improve player safety and protect all the players. Which is a lot more than lax. Lax lets 14 year olds play 12 year olds. I can argue that a young lax player vs a holdback is as open to injury risk as any football player.

That's one of the major criticisms of the BU study - they are giving forward looking advice for youth play based upon the effects of players that used older equipment, rules, and guidance on head injury awareness. It's truly not an apples to apples comparison.

As for the other comment about the football - lax crossover, we are one of the stronger programs in Class C, and to a person, of our 2021s that play club lacrosse, every one of them plays football (and all but one wrestle). The same picture plays out in the next school district over - I grew up there and know the program almost as well as our own.

Again, I don't want spring tourneys as they play school ball already 5x per wk and they are practicing at least every other wk with club until May. But you keep ramming that down your kids' throats. Sometime less is more![/quote]

You've got your kids playing football 5 times a week?!?!? You can stop talking now, no interest in anything you have to say. Apparently you're still living in 1985. Maybe you haven't heard by now that football has a direct correlation with serious brain trauma. Anyone who would allow their child to participate in that brutal sport might as well keep all of their opinions to themselves as they are totally worthless. You should read the BU study immediately.[/quote]

In case you've been living under a rock, ALL MS and HS sports teams practice or play games 5 - 6 times a wk. You either play a play a school sport or you don't - football, like every other sport in MS is M- F. You can choose to not have your son play, but critiquing all the parents of the ~3M US youth football players as having no basis to speak is probably not going to get YOU much respect. And perhaps you probably haven't noticed the fairly large overlap of football and lacrosse players, so you are basically alienating a MAJORITY of people on this board with your 'assessment'. Thus, you end up on the short end of that basis for your argument; based upon THAT, most would think YOU, not me, should keep your opinions to yourself. And, having played football all the way through the NCAA level, as well as coaching football and lacrosse at the youth level, I've got more to offer on this topic than your casual, at-a-distance reading about it. Lastly, I've already read the study, and this is an 8th grade board - the BU study particularly focuses on the effects of playing before the age of 12 - what age are typical eighth graders in NY??[/quote]

BTW, way to go on a tangent - regardless of what sport a kid is playing in the fall (and winter I and winter II!), they still have 5 practices/games per week!

You can teach your son how to "tackle the right way" but it's kind of difficult to teach him how to "get" tackled the right way.

You keep calling me a loser and a moron but that doesn't really push your argument forward. All you're really accomplishing is calling an anonymous person names, I'm not really sure what the point of that is. I'm also not sure why you're so upset with me but I'll guess that I've hit a nerve b/c you know what I'm saying is valid.

I never bothered talking about soccer because you didn't say your kid plays soccer 5 times a week. Soccer has it's own problems in that the sport just generally sucks but let's not get sidetracked with that. This whole thread started b/c you said that you wanted less of a Fall lacrosse program for your son b/c he's too busy playing football.

You act as if I'm taking some kind of crazy, controversial position on this when it's actually the other way around. Football is dying on the vine at the youth level. Boxing was also once a really popular sport in this country.

As far as NO ONE caring what I think (thanks for capitalizing that!), I disagree, I think at least one other person cares: YOU

So funny, Channy has not missed one practice yet but you are correct about one thing..... Schwalje's team is shockingly small less 2 kids. The truth does hurt my friend

On the topic of express. I am a little confused. As always Chaney recruits as many players as he can then takes an A team of 35 and over the course of the year narrows it down to the top 16 who will play. If you are in the top 16 that's great, if you are on that team it's great. If you know your child is in th bottom 15, move on. Then you have the B team, if your kid is a B player hen express is great. If your kid is on the C or D team then get him on a good B team elsewhere or he should play a different sport

You don't sound confused. Move on to a 2nd tier club that doesn't practice, the doesn't respond to emails. At least every Express team practices.

The idea that any clubs beyond the top few don't practice enough (what is "enough"?!) and/or don't respond is complete load of sh*t - there are teams from all tiers, inlcuding the top (!), that are both good and bad about communicating as well as practicing more or less!

You must have a kid on the C or D team. Yes practice is important, unfortunately if your kid is on one of those teams he is probably working on his catching and throwing. Maybe, try baseball instead.

I think practices are the MOST important part of club lax. Your kid improves at practices, not tourneys. Practice is where they are coached and learn skills. Tourneys are the gravy. I don't need another championship t shirt for my kid, I need him to be the best he can be at lax.

Disagree, respectfully.

On competitive travel teams, not every player is necessarily going to play the same amount, but part of your job as a coach is to develop every player on your team.

Coach does have to develop a player. that development happens during practice, not in a game.

I agree games are important but practice and repetitions develop and improve players.

My son is the one who wants to play club lax.

I have no problem (OK maybe little!) with investing a lot of time and money into something he wants to do.

But, I expect him to work hard and be the best he can be.

I hear you. But not playing gets old quick. Because I agree kids will improve practicing with better players (if they are getting reps). However, they will not play in any tight game. It's okay to shorten the bench and play to win, especially at the elite team level. But a coach should reward hard work at practice and get the bottom half of the roster in for a shift or two. Not playing is unacceptable, again, in my opinion. If a coach does that he will bridge the development during practice by building confidence in the player. That combination will speed up the development of a player. A competent coach can do it, because if a kid isn't good to play, he is on the wrong team.

But why might such a boy be "on the wrong team"? . You can say that a parent might have some complicity, but considering the lax 'expertise' of the team evaluators, most of the blame should be placed on them. As a business, they take some 'inappropriate' players to fill out the team and "pay the bills, when in reality they should pass over such players and continue to recruit 'appropriate' players.

Just a comment about the Chuck's vs Schwalje team. Both have good players. Fact is Chuck's team is smaller built on the offense and a couple of poles are very weak. Schwalje's boys are definitely bigger and the poles are excellent. The goalie on Chuck's team is way better than one of the goalies on Schwalje. Channy was not coaching Chuck's team on Wednesday. His other two coaches were. Igloo B is scrimmaging Chuck's team so we will see how they weather.

All others. Outlaws wanna be AA, but they are clearly a top A team. IglooA and 91A are close to AA, some kids could make those teams, but they are not there yet. ExpressA - Who knows? Do they have 3 teams? 4 teams? Huge money grab. Everyone wanted to join after his WSYL win, but he is not adding to his AA because AA is all he focuses on.



Can't wait to see Legasseee AAA at their own Columbus Day tourney playing that brutal schedule - True Blue, E3 and LI Knights so that they can get crushed by Channy in the finals.

Really - How many tournaments have they won, how many times have they beat their AA Team, Express Channy, 91 AA. United won the NXT Cup twice and many other AA tournaments. They ended up combining teams last year because they were winning tournaments and Smash was not.

As for this year 91AA is pretty much a new and better team with only about half left from last year and A has improved. Good Luck to all the teams, it should be a fun year.

Did they legalize something good while I was sleeping off the Giants' loss yesterday? I know that there are a lot of Outlaws haters here, but there is no way Jet Blue would come within 5 goals of the pirates. Unfortunately, Jet Blue is playing Legaccceeeee instead of the pirates. I guess we will never know.
It will be Legacy or Igloo vs Express in the A final and Express Shwalje vs Express Chucks in the other final.

As far as the CAA bracket I find it highly unlikely that Express Chuck advances to the finals after losing the first game. Probably will not be an actual Championship game as Express Schwalje's 3rd game will be between the two undefeated teams and instead of playing back to back games against one another will play game 3 for the Championship

Chucks should beat the Hitmen. It's the a lot of the same players that beat them at beach blast, plus some really good adds. I am sure Hitmen added as well. Express beat the Hitmen easy in the summer by 7 goals and that's a lot to make up. But it only counts on the field not on a blog. Best of luck.

Should be outlaws or legacee vs express in the finals. Legacee should be very strong this year, they were strong last year and picked up some very good players. Outlaws are similar to last year and igloo has too many new players to compete this early in the season, just my thoughts

Lets all be honest here. There is NO WAY Outlaws are beating Igloo AA, Express(channy), or 9d1 AA. They will struggle with Igloo A and Express Schwailje and Legassy. They are really not very good this year! The only major change for them is the new goalie.

Actually, there are no C teams moron and bring your comments to the field as we crush you. Here's a news flash, stop living vicariously through your kid. Winning one or two tournaments does not make you an A or B team when you never play the top teams in both divisions. Let the boys play and develop and stop stalking this site stirring up trouble. One day all of your negativity and comments are going to bite you in the butt and full karma will tear it's head. Have a wonderful and blessed day.

It was back and forth. Hitmen played and scrimmaged that Express team 4 times last year. They beat them in the Fall, in a scrimmage (doesn't matter), and earlier in the Summer. The Beach Blast was the last time they played and they beat them. The last game it looked like Express added a few kids, and Hitmen were without their better goalie and a couple of middies. Looking forward to seeing the match up on Monday it should be fun to see what the tryouts for both teams did.

Excuses excuses Hitmen. We NEVER added any new players, we were coached well and progressed which is what is suppose to happen. We never scrimmaged you 4 times. It was twice and then lost to you in two tourneys...for the record of course. At the time, you were a better time and in the end, we were.

First the previous poster never said the two teams Hitmen and Chucks scrimmaged 4 times, the poster said " Hitmen played and scrimmaged that Express team 4 times last year" . Which you agreed with. reading comprehension is a huge skill. Second is this a 13 year old posting because all I see is "WE". "WE" and "WE". so must be a 13 year old posting because don't think an adult was playing or is it just that you live vicariously through you kid .

Hi! Well Stated! I am a bitter parent of a former Outlaw player. My son is no longer on the team because they decided to upgrade.
You stole my thunder. I was going to come on here and post the very same thing and purposely leave Outlaws off the list. Kudos to you.

Here is what you posted " We never scrimmaged you 4 times. It was twice and then lost to you in two tourneys...for the record of course. At the time, you were a better time and in the end, we were." Of course you are posting about Chucks, because that was the team that played Hitmen last season. Then of course in typical hide behind a computer tough guy fashion you call the person who called you out a moron. You sound like a typical snowflake liberal.

Who cares, the Hitmen play all three Express teams on Monday, lets wait and see. Nothing that happened 2 months ago or a year ago matters. It will be a good gauge to see who is the best of the rest and develop over the year to get to that next step, like the 2nd Igloo team did last year. That team is the barometer for all these teams.

Oh geez dude, let it go. I'm an outsider here from neither team and sounds like your OCD has gotten the better of you. Let your boys play and stop the nonsense. Hitmen won, Chuck's aka O'Reilly's team won, who cares. Most likey neither of you will see the championship.

Chucks are a C team first of all so let’s get real . If they play everyone ? That’s if ! The bottom
of the roster is real weak. Some of the kids where cut from B teams and others didn’t make
Any other teams . So let’s just call them Stampede Chucks!

Funny about the bottom of the roster comment since Schwailje did not have enough kids and Express shuffled the deck to get the #'s for a roster.

So my your logic, your kid's Schwailje team is true B team........and they should crush Chucks tomorrow.

Stampede? Huh?

Start coming up with excuses now my friend.

Personally think the 2 teams are equal in talent with Chucks having the edge in coaching.

Interesting topic to debate. Is it better to play B than A if your team is an A as designated by the club, but really not A talent. I ask because True Blue, E3 and the Knights had some tough match ups today. Do the kids take anything positive from that? Or is better just climb to the top the B tier and then move up. My opinion, no benefit to playing A unless you can compete. There is losing and learning and then there is just getting blown out.

Let me tell you pot stirring tools something, Express may have figured it out because both those teams after WSYL champs look legit! Is going to be interesting and not to mention, still some movement over there. Teams are not done and still adding pieces. Channy gonna give you guys some more talk about.

Agree. Better work you can do, kids are into it, working towards getting better. Sure, you can learn a lot and developed by playing against better comp, but blowout level does nothing positive.

Good question.

My son was on a B level team for 3-4 years but recently made 2-3 high end A teams and we eventually decided to join one. He had offers past two years but we waited until he was good enough to make a true A level team then jump to a below average A team just to say we were on one. I have seen others do this - all smiles when Johnny is on Blah Blah A team and then they get smacked some B team or blown ouut by a true A. They start screaming about $, bad coaching, etc when is reality that A team is probably not better then the B team they were on but play at harder tournaments so they get smoked.

I think I made the right decision and feel good about it. Will see how it works out.

Here is the interesting piece that I do not want you to think I am a pot stirer but, True Blue, Knights and E3 were complete blowouts, which proves your son's can not play in the big leagues yet regardless of what your coach says. Hence the word, yet. This comes down to the parents talking a big game that their respective teams are "A", when in reality, they clearly are not. When your club organization only plays you in B, C and D divisions (yes D Division @ Yale Bull Dog), you may win, but you have to look at the competition. Play with the top B/B+ teams and see how you do. Then you can beat your chest when you destroy them. I am referring to solid club teams such as Igloo B (which is really an A-), Express Schwalije, Express Chuck, Hitment and Legacy. Until you face these teams, you absolutely can not call your club team that your son plays on A. Just saying...

Channy, then whoever does the best at the Columbus Day tourney makeup. Let how they play be the deciding factor, since all 3 are in it and face common opponents. Otherwise, it's waste to guess. Kudos to Top Lacrosse for trying reschedule those games. That's what will make people want to return next year!

I don't know why they wouldn't just make the ECC and NE10 divisions and shuffle them to A and AA. If I was setting up a competitive tourney I would maybe consider Three Village, Express Saracino, Hitmen and Schwalje should be in their own bracket. And the 6 AA be the other. But that's just me being pragmatic.

I think the guy was joking. It was obvious that the Florida team had young kids playing up.

This nonsense exists here on Long Island only. Adults calling kids names and d*ck measuring night after night. 1700+ viewing this forum right now at midnight. No life? No job? Just fight about kiddy sports all day? My team is better than your team. You don't play lax, your kids do and they would disown you as parents if they put the keystroke logger on your phone instead of the other way around. Congratulations for ruining this sport for everyone. Congratulations on alienating families whose kids wear a different uniform than your kid. Even worse, for alienating team members because their kid out works your kid. It's all nonsense. Anyone with a life laughs at you people.

That's a redicoulis statement..as a coach you want to go into a game you know you can't win, have the boys get defeated all to show the parents that there not good enough?? ..hmm..how about playing challenging games against teams that are with in you skill level..that 15-2 game isn't helping either team..here's a good idea: stay in your lane..

In absence of any other context, maybe. But, if you've got parents that think they're boys are way better than they really are, and you have been dealing with that for a while to no avail, the above approach sometimes is the only thing that gets the point through! Considering the over involvement of LI lax parents and the level of that on display on these boards day in, day out, is it really surprising to anyone that this is necessary sometimes?!

"Stay in your lane" - really - are you THAT afraid that your son might lose to one of these teams that you think doesn't belong? Or let me guess, your son's team didn't make the playoffs in a fall tournament because all the other teams in his division team blew out the "team that didn't belong" and your son's team had a tough schedule - is that it?

Get a grip, pal. What happens when the team that doesn't belong is crushing all the teams in the B division and they need to step up to face "real" competition -- like you said, "that 15-2 game isn't helping either team."

Hopefully the tournament organizers do as good a job putting teams into the divisions that they belong in -- and if you keep going to tournaments where the host gets a ridiculously easy schedule compared to everyone else, either suck it up or tell your organization that you don't want to go back to that tournament. There are hundreds of tournaments each year within a five hour drive from Long Island and I'm sure you can find one that fits your the talent level of your son's team that doesn't give the organizers three games against B- teams while you have to play AA (or AAA if you're from Maryland) teams.

Play competition to prove a point? I understand one side of it, but means don't and never will justify the ends. So I respectfully disagree. Try being the best at one level for a season, show off your success and build towards taking the next step. I can tell from where I sit, its not good business and you'll never attract talent by getting blown out. Those brackets this weekend are so poorly configured, I don't blame Blatant, because I am sure teams asked to be in the top bracket? That just removed an opportunity for the next tier of teams to face off and win at appropriate level. Sadly, it could have worked out.

Accept the landscape has changed and they'll never be a single tier team like Crush. The lax scene has exploded and there is now a legitimate number of elite teams on LI and we know who they are. The newest one is Igloo B and it took two full years to develop. If you are not one of these 5 or 6 teams you shouldn't play them until you beat everyone below them, especially to prove a point. This is my opinion and I like I said I understand it a bit, but strongly disagree.

Getting blown out in one tournament, a fall tournament no less, will have zero impact on the team/players/parents if it is a one-time thing, done to make a point or otherwise. That was what the OP stated - it was done to make a point.

You people are crazy, your either complaining that teams need to stop playing B and step up and play A or now what are you saying how dare you play "A" when your a "B" team. My belief is worry about your own team not what a so called B team is doing. Maybe the other 16 kids on Channy AA will be able to get in the game against one of the so called B teams. Also maybe some players at the bottom of AA rosters will notice that one of the so called B teams is not that bad and think about coming to try out the following season. Could bring the pack close together.

I don't think people are complaining as much as just disagreeing that a statement was made that playing up was prove a point to some parents and players. Try communicating honestly with parents, if they disagree they are free to explore the 50 other teams on LI.

Nope - I have no issues with typos here and there, but when you can barely figure out what is being said, I will point it out. IE, what's the point of posting basically a gibberish post?! Are you offended because it's your post?? If not, why do you care??!

How about the display of class displayed by the express parents and players and the Igloo parents and players. Brawl between the players and almost a brawl between the parents. If you two teams are tops in the grade you can have that title. The kids and parents both acted like jerks. Don't care how it started and who is right and wrong. It's 8 grade lax. WHO CARES. Adults acting like thugs. Kids too. Both teams and parents should be ashamed. CLASSLESS.

I think those two teams are just so good. And yes, it will be interesting to see where 91 is. But I suspect they'll be right there. I honestly don't see those any teams on LI challenging them. In fact, I see the next group of teams all converging. Teams like Empire A, the Hitmen, True Blue, etc catching up with the Outlaws, Legacy and Igloo B. The single A tier will be competitive and fun to watch.

I don't think anyone was happy with what happened. A bad penalty followed by a bad retaliation. A parent name calling a child should expect a retaliation from the other parent. That being said , the reason these 2 teams are as good as they are is in large part because of their competitiveness . So don't worry about handing either team any titles..they don't need your help.Hopefully players and parents alike will learn from the experience and move on.

I wouldn't say the teams below them, etc. The top two flexed their stuff and they will not lose to another LI team. 91 is unknown at this point, but I am sure they will be vying for a seat at the table with the top 2 on the Island. The rest will all converge. Because kids will catch-up with skill, maturity and overall development as we enter these HS years after the summer. Parents just be patient with your team. If you are getting good coaching and the coaches are always looking to add to improve and have connections to get into the right tourneys - all will be good for Sept. 1st 2020.

What is an illegal shaft? Typical equipment violations relate to the head on faceoffs, not the shaft. Not even sure what advantage you could get with a shaft that violates rules.

Are you a news reporter? If so, go read the USL rules. You don’t have to be sure what advantage you could get to understand that cheating is cheating. A pocket develops to be too deep > can happen. The head gets pinched over time > maybe. Intentionally cutting the shaft to a illigal length is premeditated and simply cheating the game and every other player that you are supposed to fairly compete against. All Igloo games today should have resulted in losses. And the fact that the officials did not penalize the player and the team is a joke.

We are all sure that igloo will be studying film of all 2022 lacrosse games for the last two years and finding new ways to cheat.

Are you serious? Channy recruits players after every game. Calls kids parents after every tournament. My kid included. A roster of 37 and counting. No thank you. But crazy parents like you think winning is the most important thing. Jokes on 3/4 of the kids that never see the field. But I guess you will always have those great 7/8 grade championship memories. As for igloo, that sideline is bad. Parents are not normal people.

My question is instead ejecting players for the bench clearing brawl, for lack of a better term, why were both teams not ejected from the tournament? No excuse for 13 year old players leaving the sidelines to fight. Both coaching staffs should also be held responsible for the actions of their players. Shame on Express and Igloo for the actions of their players and shame on Blatant Lacrosse for not kicking both teams out of the Tournament.

And shame on you for passing judgment on a situation when you weren't even there! My question for you is...why do you care so much that you felt the need to go sit yourself behind your computer and type that? Like anyone cares what you think. There were only a couple kids that lost their tempers and should have been ejected, the other boys were trying to help get things under control. 2-3 parents were yelling at each other and other parents made sure to stay between them to make sure it didn't escalate further. It was a dust up that ended as quick as it started . The boys went on to play really good lacrosse that game and in the final. Congrats to Express on a great day.

I WAS THERE, and I watched it with my own eyes! My son plays hockey and if the benches clear, the game is called and both teams are kicked out of the tournament. Also, I never passed judgement, these are 13 and in some cases 14 year old boys who are going to make mistakes and need to be taught that there is consequences for those actions. I stated that both teams should have been ejected for leaving the sidelines and it is the coaches responsibility to keep the players on the sideline. It honestly does not make either Club look good. They are the 2 best teams on Long Island and both are top 4 teams in the Country. There was no need for either cheap shot, the first by the Express boy which drew the flag and whistle and the retaliatory after the whistle cheap shot by the Igloo player. This highlights the problem with youth lacrosse and USA Lacrosse. In Hockey both players and their coaches would be suspended for a long time and both teams would have been tossed from the tournament. Honestly Blatant drop the ball big time.

Leads to me to a question? Why don't kids not playing in those high pressure games just move to an A team? I hear you on the practice argument if practice on another team is balls being dropped etc..., but there is a lot talent and very good coaching on the next tier of teams. Because bench shortening is fine in a championshup game, but no play I don't understand.

Refereeing in hockey is much more controlled, both in terms of the refs themselves as well as the rule book they use for in game control and resulting protocol for situations like what happened in this game. This is just another example of where USAL is very weak governing organization versus USAH - there are a myriad of problems the sport of lacrosse has with a vacuum at the "top". The sport will continue to have problems, amplified by the growth in participation. USAL either needs to step up, or an alternative organization/body should start up. Lacrosse needs to look to what other youth sports have already experienced and matured forward from - there is nothign unique about lacrosse that makes it different or immune from the issues other sports have already successfully dealt with.

Whoever said "There were only a couple kids that lost their tempers and should have been ejected, the other boys were trying to help get things under control." Are you saying 13 old boys left the bench to help get things under control. Players should not be allowed to leave the bench. The end. Kids get into it on the field fine, it's a physical game. Leaving the bench crosses a line. The NBA got that right.

After the Igloo FO player loses a FO or two, he will start using a key-holed CEO or Dictator head that do not meet the width requirements. The little Igloo FOGO AND the little Express FOGO BOTH intentionally use pinched heads that do not meet regulation if they start losing FOs. I have watched them both rotate these sticks into multiple games after a loss or two and you can see how pinched they are from the sidelines. A short shaft is an advantage for a short player because they are less likely to bang the butt-end on the ground when they are changing hands or getting trail checked by taller players. On GBs it is easier to shield from checks. Illegal is illegal. 40"

Not sure if you know but unless you are specifically playing high school rules there are not rules around stick length or for that matter what you can do with the lacrosse head. Not saying what happened is right but this is youth lacrosse. Unless the tournament specify NHS rules or even for more clarity state their own than it is open game. I have seen way to many kids, NON FOGO, play with short sticks, Larger than needed pockets, and heads strung that would ne penalties in HS. WHY [lacrosse] about something that kids on every team at the youth level do.. If it is such a concern, your teams should play in only tournaments that follow true HS level rules.

Most Tournaments either use NFHS or NCAA rules and specify modifications to those rules as needed. So yes, stick rules apply to all tournaments.

Newsflash: Blatant follows NFHS rules. NFHS rule states that the crosse shall be a minimun overall fixed length of 40. Also, USL and NFHS have a partnership and are in a process of aligning to standardize rules.

Not sure if you know but unless you are specifically playing high school rules there are not rules around stick length or for that matter what you can do with the lacrosse head. Not saying what happened is right but this is youth lacrosse. Unless the tournament specify NHS rules or even for more clarity state their own than it is open game. I have seen way to many kids, NON FOGO, play with short sticks, Larger than needed pockets, and heads strung that would ne penalties in HS. WHY [lacrosse] about something that kids on every team at the youth level do.. If it is such a concern, your teams should play in only tournaments that follow true HS level rules.


Page 97 of the 2017 US Lacrosse Youth Boys Rulebook where it states that the minimum overall stick length is 40 inches and the maximum overall stick length is 42 inches, for 14U.


Since when does US Lacrosse apply? Lol, really? We would playing age based if it did. These are independent tourneys non sanctioned by any higher body of rules.


Please don’t provide any more misinformation. Blatant follows nfhs rules. Page 27 of nfhs rulebook states the minimum overall stick length is 40 inches.

Who cares - as stated above, from the tourney rules:

"Unless otherwise stated Blatant tournaments will follow NFHS rules"

I wasn't there but that's what I read. Now that being said using a long pole on Panda and hitting him right after face off is legal and works, saw it at NLF a year ago.


After the Igloo FO player loses a FO or two, he will start using a key-holed CEO or Dictator head that do not meet the width requirements. The little Igloo FOGO AND the little Express FOGO BOTH intentionally use pinched heads that do not meet regulation if they start losing FOs. I have watched them both rotate these sticks into multiple games after a loss or two and you can see how pinched they are from the sidelines. A short shaft is an advantage for a short player because they are less likely to bang the butt-end on the ground when they are changing hands or getting trail checked by taller players. On GBs it is easier to shield from checks. Illegal is illegal. 40"

Dude, get a hobby. Borderline obsessed. They are 13 years old. Watch your kid and enjoy the game instead of being fixated on what stick some other kid uses.

One thing is for sure. There is a big gap in this age between the top 2 and the rest. 91 will likely fall closer to the top 2 once they play. But everyone else is going to tighten up below this AA tier. That's not to say all the other teams aren't good, it's just those top 2 or 3 are really freaking good.

actually you are wrong on multiple points because nfhs is the body of rules that blatant follows. now read slowing and pay close attention - us lacrosse and nfhs have a partnership and or affiliation:

US Lacrosse is proud of its partnership and affiliation with its national and international organizations that help to enhance the lacrosse experience through their contributions to the sport.

The National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) authors rules for high school boys’ lacrosse. For 2017, US Lacrosse has produced a stand-alone youth rule book for ages 14U and below.

My biggest complaint about youth lacrosse after watching this over many years, with my three boys in varying classes: that there are almost always a (small) bunch of very good teams at the top but then the next GROUP down is treated like pariahs - the "everyone else is B" crowd, if you will. Your assessment is a better, objective take on this: there are the AA, and then there are A teams, and then B etc.

I for one was a bit disappointed that the gap didn't close a bit and if anything it looked worse than last year. Usually it begins to do so by now.

Thanks for the explanation. Dont know the Igloo FOGO just know the Express one kicks [lacrosse].

Annapolis Hawks would compete and beat both more often then they lose IMO.

91 2022 is step down from Igloo and Express IMO.

Again that's just my opinion.

Agreed 7th & 8th is when the kids start to mature and catch up and the gaps close.

The dynamic is changing and these teams are getting the best players. Plus, they are shorting the bench in the big games. That's why you may see a tight game or two, it's really not a gap closing, it's playing time balance on the roster. I.E., I sure that teams #4-6 starters on the Island can easily beat teams #1-3 bottom half of the roster. My older son in the 2018s had a completely different experience at this age. Recruiting was starting and a lot of the teams began to creep backwards as interest wasn't as high because the best players were recruited and HS was the focus. Now you have to stay with your club through Jr. year. The clubs are loving the new recruiting rules. And, I am of the opinion that not all clubs are created equal. An established club because (I believe) will get you into the better events (team and Individual). In the end, there will be 100s of this class recruited, but you don't have to be on an elite team, that makes exposure easier. But imho i think it's better to be with an established club.

Far worse than this is the disparate ages of the kids competing, in a system where age is irrelevant. I have had multiple kids play and never once have I ever been asked for their age or DOB, and for that matter, proof of their grade. What the movers and shakers of travel lacrosse don't get is that this lack of age enforcement (or indeed, the lack of age even being relevant) drives people away. Travel hockey, which is fanatical in its age enforcement, has a much deeper pool of competitive levels, and therefore, paying customers, because once you ensure the kids are similar in age, you can do much more in terms of subdividing based on skill and athleticism.

Yes, the age thing is my second biggest complaint, and it is largely a driver as to why tourneys and teams are unable to properly 'position' themselves. Hockey has done all of the heavy lifting here, so USL wouldn't have to do much more than 'steal' their model, other than with a few tweaks here and there (you can do away with the player-team exclusivity, for one).

August events are almost like post season - teams are already holding tryouts by then. Until we see meaningful age-based tournaments between May and July, it won't be taking hold. That said, I guess you have to start somewhere...

There is not one NY-based event for boys (and only for girls and that is in Lake George!), which speaks volumes to the fact that age-based play is not taking hold on LI yet. I don't see how Igloo or any other LI teams can take their regular roster if they have even one holdback/reclassed/whatever boy unless that boy or boys won't compete in those qualifying tourneys or the national tourney if they qualify. This is just like the WYSL - how do you field a grade-based team AND play in age-based tourneys without player issues?

The only ones that can stop it are the tournament organizers. USA lacrosse has not mandated a universal id card for players and as a result players play wherever their parents register them. If like soccer the kids that were playing lined up with their id cards in the center of the field and the referees checked them then it would eliminate the issue. This will not happen because its about getting as many teams to register for your tournament. Why as many teams because its a business. If a tournament put in the restriction of validated age per year born not graduation year many teams would be unable to play. Issue is if one tournament is asking for age verification there are 5 others on the same day that are not and as a result teams and whole programs will go to the tournaments not requiring the proof of age. Whats interesting is that USA lacrosse has something in place but are not willing to implement it. Most kids have USA lacrosse id numbers. So if a player is registered with US lacrosse they already have an id# and a means to create a system to monitor birth year play. Its that simple. If parents held US lacrosse accountable maybe they would not turn a blind eye to it. Most tournaments and events are US lacrosse backed with insurance so it would be simple to do.

Exactly - USL can force the issue by revoking insurance for all non-age-based play. The counter that will be the defections from USL and that tournaments can secure insurance on their own. I think that would be short-sighted by teams and tourneys to perpetuate a grade-based system for no other reason than that it is the status quo (there is zero rationale for grade-based play beyond that).

Will it FALL BRAWL 2 today at Mitchell field? Igloo vs express again. Will the 2 opposing fogo's get back to their cheating ways? Igloo facing off with a fiddle stick, express taking a dive EVERY TIME he lises. Lots of drama. Can't wait. Penguin vs Italian stallion(Manhasset daddy who never stops whining to the ref about his attack son). How many of the 40 express players see the field in this game? Hint: it was 16 last week. Great day off 2022 lax drama!

Super 32’s are this weekend. It’s one of the biggest high school wrestling tournaments of the year. Stop talking about some bs fall tournament and go over to Flowrestling to watch it. You will witness some of the best athletes in the country battle it out competing in the toughest sport on the planet. Have your laxbro of a son watch too. Maybe it will toughen little Johnny up a bit.

Wait a second. Express goes 3-0 and whips Igloo and doesn't make the championship game in their own tourney because they were on the wrong end of the tiebreakers to Express North? Hahahahahaha!

Yup they set the brackets up wrong. Just have a big boy AA bracket and let the rest play A. Blatant did the same sill thing last week and it worked out, but it was close to another team backing in, for lack of a better term.

Not referring to the AA. There is good talent at the next level. Pros and Cons to these teams intermingling. But just my opinion I would separate them. They did for the 2023 bracket.

It's so funny. Every comment on this topic argues for age based rules, including US lacrosse, never have a I seen a person argue for grade based. And yet we have it. Please PAL change it on your end. It will be good because nobody really values PAL as they once did. Town lax is for tourneys not meaningless boring games.

Ever wonder why there aren't gigantic kids playing against babies in the south and in the West? Ever wonder why there is no forum wars outside of Maryland, LI, Mass? Age based teams and tournaments. Your grade based garbage is flat out cheating. Not just cheating in games. Cheating your sons from knowing how to compete fairly in life. The golden parachute won't open in real life, so cherish your t-shirts and get the psychologists on standby. Real life is full of people like you, loitering in kid sports chat rooms and comparing Barbie doll houses. You people suck at life and you're teaching your sons to be just like you. Congratulations.

Giants vs Babies? Ha! Now thats funny. When your little baby decides to grow up or when you let go and let him grow up then maybe he will be better off. Calling your own kid a baby?(he is obviously not a giant) The biggest kids on my sons team are the youngest and every team so far this fall has been bigger at every position..Guess you have not seen the players from Texas,California, Denver, play. And actually there is forums for all those states with the same crap on them. My son happens to be middle of the pack and gets jacked up to play every game. I don't cheat my son in anything and he earns everything he gets , vs Giants or babies. Please stop acting like every player is a cheater if he is on a team with holdbacks.OH and by the way every freaking team has them. I hope things get better for you and your baby before next year.

Which 2022 Express team is your son on? My son is on Schwalje and it's been a very good all around experience thus far.


His kid must be on Chuck team. They got swept and looked pretty bad from what I saw. Channy only cares about top 2 teams rest of are money grab.

Ha ha, you just have a son on the "second" team. Channy cares about one team. When in the history of express has there ever been more than one A team per grade? Your son plays on the B team get over it.

My "baby" plays his age and does very well. But listen Simpleton, there's a difference between a pubescent teenager and a 12 year old. Glad your son is such a king who skipped his growing years. But you've revealed yourself right here as a cheating, d@ck measuring Walmart lacky who actually believes cheating is the way. Did it work in your career? You probably think so. Good news, minimum wage goes up to $11 in January, so congrats.

LMAO--i guess you just read between the lines or just can't read at all.If your son is 12 then you are on the wrong forum. My son who is not a baby or a giant is 13 years old(8th grade) and does happens to play on a team with holdbacks and competes just fine . He will never complain or make excuses hence he is not a cheater and never will be. I guess bashing kids and parents makes you feel better in your small world. Keep up the classy walmart minimum wage remarks towards people you don't even know.(anonymously) So , again for the 3rd time since you clearly need to be told again, not every kid that happens to play on a team with holdbacks is a cheater . The only thing revealed is you can't comprehend things the first time and clearly are a bitter sore loser. Losers are the only ones to complain , losers only trash talk after defeat and losers only find others to blame. ALL things that we never speak of or teach our boy. So , again good luck this year and we hope it gets better for ya before High School next year.

Express History: 2011, what was the second team that summer turned out to be the best team! Beat everyone including the Top team. Won the most competitive tournament of summer that year. So, it happened. But.... Never will again as those top kids would now be moved over to what was considered the top team long before the summer season. Back then there wasn't much fall ball, practices or winter training. Teams started in May, ended in July.

I will tell you this. All the Express teams practice at the same time and from what I saw and others are saying the CHUCK team will be the 2nd team and Schwaijle team will be the 3rd team. Much more talent on the CHUCK team then the others.


Still believe that?

Forget the history. So much has changed. 2nd teams are difficult because commitment level is different. For example, all three teams below the A are done for the fall. But the A team played all October and is playing right into December. That's too much for me, but a lot of people want that much lax, that much practice and that's why rosters have 30 plus and that's fine. Because a lot people don't have the energy and time that Channy has to handle a schedule like that.

Chucks got crushed in every tournament they played in.
They are not competitive with the B teams. Some parents need a reality check.
Some of the kids cant catch an throw, also not very athletic .
Thank the heavens for Express so not to have a bunch of crying parents and there kids who thought they should have made teams.
Oh the dreamers went to 6 tryouts and made 1. the Express "C".

I'm a parent of an 8th grader in a "non-hotbed" area (CO), and we have grade-based teams, and compete against many grade-based teams from back East during the summer. From my perspective, the "hold back" thing is a non-issue. It exists, maybe it's not fair but as I tell our son, life's not fair. Playing against bigger/older kids will (hopefully) make him better, and when 10th/11th grade comes and things mostly even out on the physical side, things will seem easier for him.

Also, there's a difference between chronological age and physical age. I've seen 9th graders just hitting puberty who are smaller and less developed than 8th graders who are well into puberty. Sure, on average, older kids are more physically mature, but it's not the end of the world.

As far as us parents go, we talk a bit about the fact that there are more holdbacks on hotbed-area teams, but we only talk about it in a bemused sense; we're not seriously upset about it.

I'm sure parents of soccer, hockey, basketball, etc all had parents with similar sentiments as you - fortunately, all of those sports rightly did what was best for the game and everyone playing, and they ignored those sentiments . . .

Not much of a debate. Everyone for the most part agrees and would welcome age based. The ones against it would just be a self serving argument. The clubs or PAL needs to change it. PAL should be a no brainer since it's not about wins and losses. Honestly, if PAL announced we are adopted the US Lacrosse age guidelines, who would complain. Soon after that, the clubs would have a hard time not implementing age as well. PAL needs something like this because people aren't wasting their time with it more and more. They prefer town lax for tourneys instead. That's my view fwiw.

Don't really have a problem with it that team had a ton of turnover seems they have practiced more than played. It's the fall and they play an extensive summer schedule plus I'm sure next weekend things probably amp up. Kinda wish we weren't traveling this weekend to play teams from LI. Would be nice especially in this age group with most of the top teams from LI if all the tournaments were home.

I think the Outlaws run away with this tournament. They are head and shoulders above all the other competition including the "new" 9D1. They both have improved but Outlaws much better overall. The only chance 9D1 has is their X factor, the ex Outlaw. Should be interesting!!

No doubt the anonymous posters are the ones whose kid is on a premier team but probably never plays. Bottom 3 or 4. Brags to people about the team his kid plays on but fails to tell everyone he's a bench player.
Parents of the better players could care less about who's where and who beats who.
I hope you don't raise you son to be as spineless as you are. He will grow up to be the water boy on the sideline.

Should be in 9th grade...

But he is in the 8th grade and you are right , a kid born in July or August has a tremendous advantage over a kid born in Sept. or October. Stop your whining.

Saw smash play today, and have seen igloo, express etc. Smash is the best team on LI. One will argue that the competition was weak in CT, and that is true but Smash is the best team on LI by far.

Why isn’t Smash in the A tournament tmw. I guess they really wanted that B t-shirt today.

Looks like we have a rebirth of Smash and United. Outlaws have appeared to have taken a step back. In my opinion

June from the year before... know your facts before you rebut. No one is whining, just stating the truth. That's a 15 or 16 month difference for kids born in September or October of 2004...

Yep couldn't lose their own tournament. Final score was definitely not how the game went against the Ducks. It was 1 to 1 about half way thru the game. Ducks had a ton of turnovers. The game get away from them from there. Empire wouldn't even play in the championship game they just assumed a win ?

I guess Smash will be starting clear of Igloo and Express so they can guarantee they never lose.

Express just won vs the toughest field of the Fall. They are the best team this weekend. Leading Edge seems to have improved a lot.

The 91 2nd team tied 3-3. Lotsa parity. Don't know who is A or B anymore, just a few elite teams and the rest. The rest looks pretty solid.

Biggest question from the weekend. Is 9D1 Smash that good or is the rest of the pack in the "A" division that's bad I saw they completely dominated the Outlaws. It seems only 3 AA teams on Long Island that being Express Channy, 9D1 Smash, Igloo. All the others are just either A or B. Simple as that!!!!!!

You just committed BOTC blasphemy: to suggest that there might be more than 2 - 3 non-AA "A teams" at an age on LI. You better watch your back - the lax mafia is coming for you . . .

Yes igloo plays the same players most of the game. But at least they are from Long Island. Watched that express team play yesterday. They shouldn't be called long island express anymore. Just express. At least 6 players not from the island. Not even from NYS. They are the same as the dukes now who they constantly bad mouth. I guess if you can't beat them join them.igloo still the best true LI team.

I would say they are very well matched with above teams. you certainly cant go by prior year performance. this new HM team has been revamped with a few nice upgrades this season. I believe from what i saw that they could absolutley beat anyone of those teams. (the only argument i would have is that your short changeing Legacy which should be catagorized as an A team).

All it means all these teams are all within the same (not equal) ability level. That means forget A and B, the next level is Igloo 2nd team, Express 2nd team, Hitmen, Legacy A, Outlaws, fl$, True Blue, 91 2nd team and Empire. The problem is some of these teams want to compete with the big boy AA teams. Oulaws and Legacy are likey the top teams here in my opinion, but elite players from those teams tend to migrate to the big 3. Just my opinion on things.

You read it wrong. It's the top 3 and everyone else... with outlaws and legacy being the best of the rest. Meaning stop with aa, a, b+, b.. It's results and the top 3 have separated themselves on LI this fall. Right now after the top 3 it's Legacy, Outlaws and everyone else on LI can't beat those teams in my opinion. If that's silly, fine my opinion and we can disagree. But that's what the results bear out in my opinion.

I love it... "Top Level Boys", really? They are 13/14 yrs old and many have not even hit puberty yet which will be the ultimate game changer. Let's all take a deep breath here and let's see where these boys are in 18/24 months. We have all seen 13 year old "All Stars" that peaked early (now) and they were done with the game by JV because they have stopped growing and being 5' 6" as a 15/16 yr old makes it much more difficult to compete.

I love the answers from the ignorant and myopic - if it doesn't affect them then there's no problem! Typical self-centered assholes. A proper assessment of talent of teams is not necessary for labeling players - it's primarily so that teams can properly decide upon which tournaments they should be playing in so that, correspondingly, those players can get the best lax experiences in the course of their development as players! Of course, the development of any players other than your own kid and/or his teammates is of zero interest to your ilk, so no shocker there that you don't care. It is for that reason why for every program director that claims to be involved in club lacrosse primarily for the "betterment of the game and for the kids", I say BS - if they truly had the interest of the game in mind, they would advocate for policies that actually had the maximum benefit of the most players! Sadly, they're all full of sh*t - all the care about is their club.

Yes one of the top teams in LI but not sure why 91 doesn’t want to play the best teams yet / baby steps with Yale tournament and their easy NLF scheduled draw / playing it safe this Fall season

they have kids from all over on that team now, not just long island kids. Maybe too many were unavailable to play at the other tournaments?

I love the answers from the ignorant and myopic - if it doesn't affect them then there's no problem! Typical self-centered assholes. A proper assessment of talent of teams is not necessary for labeling players - it's primarily so that teams can properly decide upon which tournaments they should be playing in so that, correspondingly, those players can get the best lax experiences in the course of their development as players! Of course, the development of any players other than your own kid and/or his teammates is of zero interest to your ilk, so no shocker there that you don't care. It is for that reason why for every program director that claims to be involved in club lacrosse primarily for the "betterment of the game and for the kids", I say BS - if they truly had the interest of the game in mind, they would advocate for policies that actually had the maximum benefit of the most players! Sadly, they're all full of sh*t - all the care about is their club.

Really? So does every team, plus football, etc. 91 needs to challenge themselves. They need to play against Primetime, Leading Edge and Express this weekend.

What 8th graders are getting the looks from their HS coaches on varsity. Any playing this weekend? If so good luck, I always like to keep an eye out for those kids. Seen a long line of them do great things. And dont give me the crazy line that certain schools need them and others dont allow them. I like to celebrate all tose that get the oppurtunity.

There is really no need because these advanced players are already competing at high level, they are getting great training and they certainly play plenty of lacrosse through their club team. risk = injury & reward = 0 Those players will have a bright future and don’t need to prematurely play varsity and jeopardize their years to come in high school and college.

It depends on where you live. Every athletic program is completely different. Everyone will make the choice that’s best for their own kid. It’s nobody else’s business.

Seriously you people are all delusional! Just stop with all the negativity and stupidity! They are 13 year old kids who cares what team your kid plays on and how many t-shirts your kid has won let them have fun. Oh and in case you wanna say something insulting toward me or my child he played on the Brine team and the Warrior team. I will be honest if he didn't love it I wouldn't lose sleep over him not playing lacrosse anymore. He never gives me a hard time about training or practice, the moment he does I'm done. That would mean it's not fun!!!

If you live in any community that has a solid program, unless a kid is a phenom, the answer should be none. (Hint: there aren't many phenoms . . . )

You only get to make a choice for your kid AFTER the coach makes a choice to even consider your kid playing up. Getting a little ahead of yourself there...

Express handled easily by leading edge. Score closer than the game . 10-7. 91 the best team on LI. Come summer it won't be close. Express, let's hear all the excuses for today. Too windy, too cold, muddy fields, missing players. Guess what? Same goes for every team there.

91 Nuts are back! Close game, no excuses. 91 should take it easy and try playing in a handful of tournaments, and winning, with all the best teams before self proclaiming to be the best.

Tourney machine corrected score. LE won 10-7. Looks like LE’s 10-2 victory over Igloo was not a fluke. Regardless, all of these teams are good.

Actually no NOT a 91 nut I'm a jersey nut which is why I said on LI not overall LE will be the top dog very soon. We didn't play 91'but saw them and they look much better than previous year. Laxachusetts also tough

91 is not the best at 2022 stop with that nonsense.

Leading Edge has multiple 15 years olds at 2022. Seriously? Get a life.

All that being said the NLF teams are all getting more event then they were in 2022 a few years ago.

Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2022 - 8th Grade Fall 2017/Summer 2018 - 11/28/17 02:22 PM
The reason why all these NLF teams are getting better is because they all use some 15 year old kids to play against each other. And that includes 91 and express who both have some players that should be in high school. It works at this level though. If you can't beat em join em.
