yes it seems like every time true blue loses there is some kind of excuse, and its funny how they have all these new great players already on the team a day after tryouts.

While possible, and there may be some preliminary contacts, especially for a new very talented player, I think TB is waiting until their last tryout day, which is next Monday, to form their teams for most ages. There are some notable exceptions to that, but I don't think the 2023 teams fall into that category.

No one waits until the last tryout to form a team. You risk a chance of losing players or not getting the ones you want. Everyone wants commitments immediately with a down payment. Thats why everyone is having tryouts earlier this year. Don't believe the clubs telling you that they want everyone to get it out of the way so you can enjoy your summer. Next year tryouts will be in the beginning of July, wait and see. They get earlier every year.

Both Outlaw teams were talented last year. Combining the select and gold. Should be a very good showing at the tryout from what I have heard.

Great coaches who are committed to the boys development and want to compete but not at all costs. Don't listen to any noise about years past and lack of commitment from the coaches. This past year dispelled that notion as the team practiced consistently and regularly. Team will get better as the kids get older / stronger. They will look to narrow the gap between themselves and the top tier teams. There are opportunities on the team if your son is athletic and / or has good skills and coachable.

"Not sure what the hang up is with TB they are a solid team. Someone on here keeps posting they make excuses when they lose I don't think they do. Every single person on here complains when they lose they all say the other team had holdbacks that's the common excuse. I get it you don't like TB for whatever reason your entitled to your opinion. There a good team well coached and each year they get better not sure where all the animosity comes from."

My guess is because TB beats the $3k/year B teams and has been gaining ground on the A teams.

We will find out soon enough. Too many tryouts over next few days and weekend. They most likely will send out invites today or tomorrow to lock kids up. Parents won't wait 4-5 days if going to other tryouts.

Same old story. Can you let it go. You are happy at Express and the ones that stayed plus the new families are happy with Outlaws. Your experience was not great in prior years. It has changed for the better so please stop bashing the Outlaws for an issue that was resolved a year ago.

Not likely you will get many constructive answers. Here is what I Have observed or heard .

Recon-fairly "new". Both teams are fairly competitive and the parents I spoke to at a tourney seemed happy.
Hitmen- Not as competitive. Fly low on the radar. Don't hear much about them either
Icon- there older teams are very competitive. The 2023's seem to be inconsistent. There was a mad exodus of kids a year or 2 ago.
Bluefish- I didn't see them at many tourneys. I don't think it is an overly competitive team.

Woukd love for others to weigh in. Not sure they will because they aren't one of the top!

Hitmen and Recon tied a couple of times this past year. I believe both teams got solid talent at tryouts and both should be improving. Coaches for both teams are returning as well. Probably comes down to which practice facility are you closer too.

Icon not enough information

Bluefish - came out of the gate with a lot of teams their first year then all the younger teams started to look elsewhere. They still have younger teams but they're not competitive and often borrow kids from other teams. This depends on the team but I know the 2023 and 2022 team did this. Nothing wrong with it just stating facts.

Yes, a lot of kids got bumped to "B". The holdbacks stay under the cover as a 2023 grad year, and yes daddy ball remains.

by offense you mean the binder full of plays he calls? that the way lacrosse is played right with a binder of laminated plays every time down the field? Or maybe I'm just stupid and confused igloo for a football team instead of a lacrosse team.

by offense you mean the binder full of plays he calls? that the way lacrosse is played right with a binder of laminated plays every time down the field? Or maybe I'm just stupid and confused igloo for a football team instead of a lacrosse team.


Stupid definitely! Sprinkle in some sad well.

Yes, a lot of kids got bumped to "B". The holdbacks stay under the cover as a 2023 grad year, and yes daddy ball remains.


They were looking for a righty, and from what I saw there were a bunch at tryouts. I'm sure they got one, but none were noticeably better than what they had. Definitely no difference makers. I guess we'll see.

Not likely you will get many constructive answers. Here is what I Have observed or heard .

Recon-fairly "new". Both teams are fairly competitive and the parents I spoke to at a tourney seemed happy.
Hitmen- Not as competitive. Fly low on the radar. Don't hear much about them either
Icon- there older teams are very competitive. The 2023's seem to be inconsistent. There was a mad exodus of kids a year or 2 ago.
Bluefish- I didn't see them at many tourneys. I don't think it is an overly competitive team.

Woukd love for others to weigh in. Not sure they will because they aren't one of the top!


Hitmen and Recon tied a couple of times this past year. I believe both teams got solid talent at tryouts and both should be improving. Coaches for both teams are returning as well. Probably comes down to which practice facility are you closer too.

Icon not enough information

Bluefish - came out of the gate with a lot of teams their first year then all the younger teams started to look elsewhere. They still have younger teams but they're not competitive and often borrow kids from other teams. This depends on the team but I know the 2023 and 2022 team did this. Nothing wrong with it just stating facts.


Recon A team never played Hitmen, it was their B team that they tied, Recon A is a much better team.



Out of these four its Recon without a doubt, they are very competitive, well coached, and the parents are down to earth.

What a bunch of whiney grown men!!! Let me state I am not with igloo but have watched them play against my son quite a few times and they are a well coached, very disciplined bunch of talented kids. And parents who have tons of class on the sidelines...unlike most of you on here.

stay off of BOTC Mrs Baldy.


Your life must blow if your down to trolling some team your kid can't make.

We know a bunch of 13 year old's who can make the team for now, and a few who shouldn't be on the team.

They seem carry a lot of kids on both teams, and it appears a lot of them are attack too, but the starting Attack line on A team seems to be pretty solid.......
They could prob use another lefty or size though to round them off.

Recon did cut down the # of players from last year and I think they will do the same again, need better depth at attack position.

There were 105 kids total including the kids already on the team, so there were about 55 or 65 new kids max and that was for 4 grades.

dukes and Express have beef pretty funny. Whats even funnier is Express parents complaining about the Duke holdbacks I guess they forgot they have about 4 or 5. Not including the kid that plays on the 2022 then goes down to 2023 games real class act Express is.

Dukes brought several teams to play Express teams on Sunday at Cedar Creek Park in Seaford. Their supposed 2023 team played the Express' Haugen team (2nd team). Dukes team had several players that had recently participated in the WSYL, as was clear by some of the gear they were wearing. This years WSYL event was for 2022's, not 2023's. It was crystal clear for anyone that watched the game, that several of the boys that played for the Duke's were older. Regardless of whether they were holdbacks, reclassifications, etc., they were noticeably larger and more physically mature then the Express' team. The Dukes program has to have victories to market their program and concept, and if it means that they need to stack a team to do so, it's what will sell the program to the parents that are looking for that result. Unfortunately it is the state of youth lacrosse today, that victories are more important then the development of the players, and organizations that are competing for players and revenue will do what they have to accomplish their goal. At the end of the day, these were exhibition games played by young boys that probably spent their afternoon at the pool or beach, and gave it far less thought then most of the adults that spend their time on these threads.

1 WSYL player on DN 2023 and he's an 10/04 birthday so he'll be eligible next year too. Yes, definitely bigger faster stronger, just not older. Keep telling yourself that they are holdbacks if it makes you feel better, but please stop harassing the 12 year old boys during the game.

The Dukes program has to have victories to market their program and concept, and if it means that they need to stack a team to do so, it's what will sell the program to the parents that are looking for that result. Unfortunately it is the state of youth lacrosse today, that victories are more important then the development of the players, and organizations that are competing for players and revenue will do what they have to accomplish their goal. At the end of the day, these were exhibition games played by young boys that probably spent their afternoon at the pool or beach, and gave it far less thought then most of the adults that spend their time on these threads.

There are ZERO hold backs on 2023 Express Haugen, all of the boys are 11 & 12, can't speak for any other teams.

Pretty True assessment, by this poster! No real standouts at any position on Dukes, except for their goalie, he played very well. Just bigger, stronger, older. Congratulations you beat an age appropriate B team. I you played Haugen's team, you would have got your asses handed to you.

1 WSYL player on DN 2023 and he's an 10/04 birthday so he'll be eligible next year too. Yes, definitely bigger faster stronger, just not older. Keep telling yourself that they are holdbacks if it makes you feel better, but please stop harassing the 12 year old boys during the game.



HAHAHA You must be that fat Dukes parent that came waddling over to the stands to claim your son was only 12. Tell him to enjoy his size advantage because judging by the gene pool he's destined to be 5'7" 315 waddling around the crease

10/2004 birthdate makes him a 2022 in NY. So yes, he is older than players on a NY team. 2023 in NY is Dec 2004-Nov 2005.

So who organized these games? I just see it as Apples and Oranges when you have a organization that is pulling kids from various clubs together a few times a year to play together vs. a club team whose kids all come from a similar geography and put their club team first and foremost. Why didn't express play their A team? Why did Express B offer to play this game knowing that the Duke's team is what it is. (Very good players from multiple regions consisting of a 2023 team with kids that would be 2022 had their parents elected to not start them in school a year later for whatever reasons). I see neither club benefiting from this. Maybe Duke's should go play True which seems to be following their model. Maybe Team 91 should put together a team with their various regional clubs. For Express being able to play a good team in their backyard I guess is a no brainer...not sure what Duke's gets out of it. What was the final score? Sounds like it wasn't competitive?

Express does the same thing some balls calling out Dukes. You had at least one player for sure playing in WSYL and he played in the 2023 LI Laxfest bracket then played in the 2022 bracket, stop crying Express you got beat at your own cheating game. Your program does the same thing bring holdbacks and older kids to try and win a tourney so you can boost up tryout participation and numbers for more teams = more revenue for the owner. Got a taste of your own medicine sucks right.

That's what a well rounded team looks like... After the beating, you're left standing around looking stupid because you can't even figure out who did it to you. And yes both goalies are fantastic, unfortunately, only 2-3 shots were put on goal. Next time and your best team like the other age groups.

Because the Express 2023A coach probably respects that his kids want a break and a little summer when they can get it, and probably said "No thank you".

The owner of Duke's Nationals (gonzo) is a long island native from Sachem. Gonzo and MC put the day together so they could have an additional opportunity to evaluate their players. Both teams had a bunch of top players missing due to family vacations. Fun event and not official. Equivalent to college fall ball.

No LI team made the finals at NXT Cup. 91 Warriors lost in semis to a team DN beat.

Last year played 91 Bandits and Igloo, lost to both by 1 goal.

They have Improved a lot over the year and have beaten a bunch of MD AAs this year. They are a legit AA team, as good as anyone, and getting better.

If you play them bring your best players or you will get buried.

WSYL is the only event where there are rules that have to be adhered too. It's the only way to level the playing field. Age appropriate lacrosse, with no holdbacks. The current rosters of ALL the top teams wouldn't qualify due to holdbacks.

He didn't charge a cent. In fact, he threw in 2 extra tournaments this year at no charge. Tryouts had been scheduled for monday night. It was an exhibition game. I didn't care about the outcome. I just wanted my son to get a good run in and knock the cobwebs off so he went into tryouts without any rust.

Exactly the problem with the concept of the Dukes team. Dukes is trying entice the kids from all the AA teams to come on board. There is no incentive for these kids to leave their great LI team to travel, practice once a month and play for a team their club team could probably beat. Dukes says it is an adjunct to the regular local club teams, but most of the Dukes tournaments overlap with the Club team tournaments so that makes no sense. This whole team is a $ grab. Maybe good for kids in remote places that don't have access to competitive club teams, but it makes no sense for the players AA Long Island players they are looking for. Please take the Dukes show back to Phillie.

I play on a AA LI team and play for the Duke's Nationals. In my mind everything is a money grab if you make poor decisions. All I care about is getting my son the best training that will make him better. I care as much about my teams coaches as they care about my son. "If he stops producing they will drop him and move on, quickly!" So far the cost/benefit of the Duke's Nationals makes sense because my son is getting something that my regular club team cannot provide. Yes we win youth games but who truly cares about getting another t-shirt every week. As long as my son gets the training he needs to achieve his college lacrosse goals then I'm in.

So your saying the training is that much better at Dukes than your current LI AA team...you are clearly lying. The 23 Dukes coaches are not bad but they are not bringing anything special to the table. Good try though some people might actually believe this...

There is no incentive for these kids to leave their great LI team to travel, practice once a month and play for a team their club team could probably beat. Dukes says it is an adjunct to the regular local club teams, but most of the Dukes tournaments overlap with the Club team tournaments so that makes no sense. This whole team is a $ grab. Maybe good for kids in remote places that don't have access to competitive club teams, but it makes no sense for the players AA Long Island players they are looking for. Please take the Dukes show back to Phillie.


I play on a AA LI team and play for the Duke's Nationals. In my mind everything is a money grab if you make poor decisions. All I care about is getting my son the best training that will make him better. I care as much about my teams coaches as they care about my son. "If he stops producing they will drop him and move on, quickly!" So far the cost/benefit of the Duke's Nationals makes sense because my son is getting something that my regular club team cannot provide. Yes we win youth games but who truly cares about getting another t-shirt every week. As long as my son gets the training he needs to achieve his college lacrosse goals then I'm in.


"I play on a AA LI team" ? Where are you on the depth chart?

They did 100%


Then you are not talking about RECON's "top" middie and defender. Maybe you are thinking of others, but definitely not their "top" guys.


Nope, top guys

The defender that went to TB was a good player but he was not even on the top defensive line, didn't start. If a middie left I know for sure it was none of there top guys.

What program did they go to and why did they leave?
Everyone seems to have good thing to say about them, expect they carry to many kids and need some better attackman. I guess if they fix that, they sound like the perfect team.



Recon is very deep at defense and middie, there strong points. If they lost someone it was definitely not their top player, top middie and defensemen close ties with the coach,parents and players.

So your saying the training is that much better at Dukes than your current LI AA team...you are clearly lying. The 23 Dukes coaches are not bad but they are not bringing anything special to the table. Good try though some people might actually believe this...


Hey Coach... Sounds like your feelings are hurt. ha!

You better go back to school so you can come up with a better argument than that, Mr. "I play for an AA team". You are precisely the over involved parent living vicariously through their kid that Dukes is preying on. Dukes coaches bring nothing to the table. Here on Long Island we may be competitive but we aren't stupid.

Their tryouts were cheaper than the others we paid for. My kid had fun, lots of S2S helmets, but the ones without held their own. A parent said they're having 2 teams, which would be good because of their location and coaches

Anyone at turtles? Stony brook too far, and I emailed them some questions that went unanswered. Curious how the turnout was.

Did they get enough of a turnout to think they'll have enough kids to field 2 teams?

So there was a big enough turnout to field 2 teams? I heard there were less than 40 kids including the S2S kids. Can't field 2 teams out of that!

Dukes are not meant to be a primary team just another source for playing outside of your kids club/town team. Nothing wrong with concept but when run by daddy coaches who don't adhere to their own depth chart they set in place things go south quickly. Lots of turnover as result which has adverse effect on their ability to win

I've been to numerous tournaments since these boys have been in 3rd grade. At every single tournament every single sideline parents have red cups. I've never seen any TB parent out of line and in all honesty never seen a parent of another team out of line. 99% of the time all parents are routing for there team. So again its obvious you don't like TB or the parents for whatever reason but stop the nonsense, none of that is true. Good luck to all during tryout season and whatever team you son lands on.

Again lets agree to disagree you don't like the organization maybe you used to play for them maybe not. I have had a good experience with them. I think Cat is a great coach. Does he yell at a ref once in awhile yes nothing wrong with that. I'm pretty positive other coaches yell at refs also. BTW if screaming is intimidating to you I think you should pick up your skirt and man up...

Screaming by a 300 lbs. gorilla is intimidating to a 11/12 year old boy on the opposing team.

It's a good team. In all honesty I don't think they are fielding a 2nd team based on turnout last night. The team was invite only. Now I think they are trying to upgrade a few spots.

2024 calls went out, and 2023 had their last try out the same night. Considering that Cat runs both 2023 teams, I'd surprised that calls didn't go out as they did for 2024.

Too many kids is an understatement.. A few of those kids don't belong on an A team and are taking up space on the roster . It really is about who you know .

Clearly there are bigger issues @ Bluefish. He's not the problem.

The Bluefish obviously tried to get the Massapequa kids to leave other teams (mostly True Blue) by hiring Powers. That did not work.
Bluefish has and will continue to field B to C level teams mostly filled with GC kids who don't make other competitive travel teams. The beyond arrogant head "Fish" should concentrate on trying to make the playoffs with his college team which never happens. Good thing that the very strange, and very rich Insurance Company dude who pays for everything at Hofstra likes him.

Recon B team is looking for attackman . Recon B team is looking for kids . Last year was actually a 2023/24 team. I know they are trying to have separate 2024 team this year. That means spots are open . Goalie is the coaches kid but plays very well most days . Defense was solid last year. They need a few more middies and maybe a FOGO. Very good core . Coaches are solid. Kids seem to like them and parents were pleased.

What team are you talking about?


Any team that has more than 22 kids is in it for the money at that point, no matter how good the club is or how reliable it is. Whatever the reason is that they say they need more kids, they need to look at that first and fix that, not bandaid the issue and add more kids. How can a parent except there kids to learn, develop and grow if they are only playing 5 min or 10 min of a 40 min game (tournament or not) because there are three or four lines, or better yet, like some of the top team out there, kids that never see the field.

It's a good team. In all honesty I don't think they are fielding a 2nd team based on turnout last night. The team was invite only. Now I think they are trying to upgrade a few spots.


Good team. Strong core, looking to add a few key pieces. If you have a strong player but stuck playing for a top program's B team or if you aren't on one of the 'elite' teams (Bandits/Igloo/Express), you should check it out. Good coaching (head coach doesn't have a son on the team), play in top tournaments and compete at a high level. I'm sure someone will find something to rip but everyone's got an agenda on this site.

It's called "we take as much tryout money as possible first, then tell you we're fielding a second team later".

Send a note to the coach or director or ask at the tryout. I doubt they were trying to pull the wool over anyone's eyes when it came to potentially fielding a second team. Maybe the demand wasn't there or maybe there's something else going on, can't hurt to ask.

For the first team they need some size on the midfield line to compete with the out of state teams who all seem to be fairly large and they need a strong face off player (can be one and the same player). Their primary face off player was hurt for the first few tournaments last summer and they didn't have an adequate backup. They are going to make a push for Denver if that's something you are interested in.

S2S looking to upgrade at all positions . As far as a second team, there is more demand than what showed up Tuesday night. They will field a second team, only if there is enough interest.

Every 2023 team has older kids that can't go to Denver (not sure why there is not much interest in that tournament). Express not the only one. Igloo. S2S. All of them.

There was one big kid there from primetime (out of state as you say) that was able to dodge to the cage at will except for on the big kid on D. I don't think most of the D for the A team was there last night so maybe that's why it was so easy for him but not too may kids there without express helmets.

What I did not like is the fact that a lot of A team players did not even show up for the second day or not show up at all. I guess their sports are safe.

Every A player was there except 2 players. Don't know why you need to lie .... You either have no idea who is on the team or looking to stir the pot. Team has improved each year and will continue to do so this year. Best of luck to whatever team your son makes because obviously it wont be this one.

The Prime Time Kid, just ran down the field, through all the defenders, and shot the ball, didn't pass once. Not sure that will work against a quality defense, or with attack men that never get passed the ball.

Seriously you don't have to lie and no one is trying to stir the pot. Express has 3 teams
There were 21 poles there on day 1 and all but 3 had on express helmets. Day 2 they only had maybe 16 poles with two of them without express helmets
They had 3 goalies day 1 and 4 on day 2, each with a express helmet on. With 3 teams that carry 2 goalies each.

So please tell me how you speak for the org and everyone was there. Come on man we all know they will take 98% of the kids on the A team back all they have to do is show up to 1 tryout.

Let's see how many practices he makes. He lives 2 hours away. Not sure how that will work either.

Just moved to Plainview. Good things said about Recon organization and the coaches for the 2023 "B" team. Empire is too far. Outlaws "B", mixed opinions... Son is a "B" level player at this time.



Outlaws is probably better than recon. Empires not close. Maybe recon improves this year and makes it close. Save yourself the travel and go with recon.

Not sure why someone would leave a team after playing there for the last several years. Especially, going into a big year.

Recon A
I know parents from this team and they are not happy with the amount of kids and the fact that a few kids should not be in the A team . I was thinking of having my son try out this weekend which is why I asked . I get it coaching comes with perks and if a kid is not that good they will be on the team because his daddy coaches . If I am paying money to travel I want to be on a team where everyone earns playing time it's not PAL . i am sure it's a well run organization but they need to cut back on the roster .

Recon is a joke Bad coaching. Decent team. But coaches don't know anything. Don't believe anything good you here from that team.

Thanks, I will. After talking to a couple of people, they said the Recon coach for that age group does a good job compared to the Outlaws coach.

Igloo Middie that was at Express can and has played both positions (Mid/Att). Excellent player that will be a huge loss for Igloo and a great pick up for Express if he goes. Express better add some new players if they want to win in Denver as constructed now there better players wont be able to play.

A number of reasons. 3 dad coaches (nothing wrong with that in some cases) aka daddy ball, did not win much, I am sure the kids were excited to go to practice and play games.

I agree. Recon B coach works very well with his team and the players respond well to him. Hands down, I would definitely choose him over Outlaws B.

False, there best Midfielder was at the tryout. He also played on the Brine team with some of the Express kids. Keep telling yourself that Igloo isn't falling apart. I will be honest Igloo does have nice swag, hahahahaha.

Great Organization, tuition is really reasonable, they are there for the players and families with very little turnover of players that are committed to them and the coaching is great on both teams.  Yes, coaching does have it perks if you have a kid. I don’t think it is a negative thing and playing time if definitely earned, but the only way to avoid that is to go to a team with unattached coaches or coaches that stay with set year. But typically coaches with kids on the team have more vested interest in making that team as a whole better, and keeping the kids together to grow, and not there just for a pay check.

Roster is a little big on both the A and B team (not sure about the other ages).  Hopefully they scale it down a little so the kids can have more playing time and it would resolve that. 

Definitely need a few more practices added through throughout fall and summer but they will compete well this year, even if these so called kids do go to TB that everyone keeps on posting about.

Tryout are probably one of the cheapest around. Come out and see for yourself what is all about.  Ask them question there, or if you get a call.  They are all standup guys and will tell you how it is.

Very good players from what "other teams?" Are the Outlaws "A" looking to revamp their entire roster or just tweak it?
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2023 - 7th Grade Fall 2017/Summer 2018 - 08/11/17 03:42 PM
So I suggest you not tryout for Recon and I hope that those people who are not happy go elsewhere, although as far as I know, everyone seemed pretty happy.
No team is perfect and I for one am happy not to have to go to tournaments to watch my kid not play! Not every kid gets equal play time, but every one plays. Also, weather it's "daddy coaches" or favorite players or teams wanting to win at all cost some kids will get preferential treatment.

Sounds like a desperate advertisement from an organization that has now lost at least two more starters this year by choice not because they didn't make the team. If it was so great you would not have to tell everyone about your 50 practices and a few spots still available. Good try though.

Roster was a bit big last year. That will be corrected . As. Stated before the Recon B team was a mixed team. This years roster shouldn't be more than 23-24 at most ...
9-mid
6-att
6-def
1-fogo
1-2 goalies

And yes the coaches kids play on the team
B goalie is the coaches kid ... almost always played the second half . I think that was by design . Kid had a tough year . Team had small leads or was behind at half a lot . Other B team coach plays D I think as for the A team ... I'm not sure where they play

Recons starting 10 can hang with anyone, besides the top 5, they need to develop some depth.

It's obvious the reply is coming from the organization (Coach), and not a parent. A coach can hold 500 practices, if the majority of the team isn't developing, what sense does it make? Every organization has age group(s) which struggle. Outlaws isn't known for their 2023 group, A or B... Coaching plays an important role just as much a the child's ability. Not a knock on the organization, it is what it is...

My Son has been on team a few years, and we love it.
Over 50 practices last year




Sounds like a desperate advertisement from an organization that has now lost at least two more starters this year by choice not because they didn't make the team. If it was so great you would
not have to tell everyone about your 50 practices and a few spots still available. Good try though.


What starters left?


None

Yes! Give express your money and you can show up to practice when you want. Most clubs wouldn't [lacrosse] their teams out like that. It's the Express way.

The team did not lose two starters.


I don't think either of the two teams lost their core starters...

Maybe the owner should take a hard look as to the reason why the lost bunch of kids didn't have a good track record.

Coaches should take multiple kids leaving as a sign and try and figure out why. They don't because 90% of the time there is someone waiting to pay. Many of these clubs don't care about the kids they care anout their bottom line. This is why they put 30 kids on a roster (still baffles me why people pay for this). I wonder if coaches reach out when players leave to find out why. Sometime kids leave because they think the grass is greener or they want to be on a "name brand team. I would bet sometimes they leave because they don't like the way they are coaches or the dynamic if the team. If I owned an organization it would benefit me to have loyalty from my team. If I couldn't achieve that I would want to know why. Some of these organizations are just too self absorbed.

Some parents are just happy that their little johnny is playing travel and that's okay. Which means the Outlaws will always have players to field their two teams. Again, there is nothing wrong with that.

100% accurate. Most oof these LI club owners could run a successful business outside of club.

Many good points. Also, your kid must have the drive and desire to put the work in in order to get better. That said, this time of every year parents have leverage over the organization and coach. One very important point; what does the team do in the off-season. I know many organizations offer clinics at an additional price, but as a team is the coach conducting practices, readying the team for the upcoming spring?
Last week, I traveled out east for the turtles tryout; very impressed with leadership, organization of the tryout with many reps and level of competition wasn't bad at all. fl$ is holding their tryouts this week. Another class organization. So if you're looking, well worth considering. Unfortunately we read the same old complaints from the outlaws organization in this age group year after year. Nothing changes if nothing changes...

That's not good. I know their top tier team didn't do very well this year, many think they are a "B" team playing in the "A" bracket. Don't know about the second team. Sure it's easy to blame it on the talent level, but coaching style plays a huge part in youth sports. Some of those coaches should not be anywhere around kids... Parents do your research before joining an any organization especially one like the outlaws.

Everyone knew last year was a rebuilding year, it was not a secret. Attackmen all coming back and added speed. Middies got faster and more skilled with additions, Will roll strong two lines. All middies have good shots. Will put out three big defensemen and will be harder to play against. Excellent goalie. This year will be much different.

Always spots available for players that will upgrade a team. No ones position is safe until all tryouts are complete.

Same story a year ago "All good for outlaws , couple mids left but replaced by better players." It will be the same story this time next year.

Some parents are just happy that their little johnny is playing travel and that's okay. Which means the Outlaws will always have players to field their two teams. Again, there is nothing wrong with that.


Everyone knew last year was a rebuilding year, it was not a secret. Attackmen all coming back and added speed. Middies got faster and more skilled with additions, Will roll strong two lines. All middies have good shots. Will put out three big defensemen and will be harder to play against. Excellent goalie. This year will be much different.

Outlaws said the same thing last year and look- same result- nothing changed. B team at best

Son is gonna tryout for empire. Heard good team but don't play in A tournaments. Just what my son needs since he just started playing last yr. Is this accurate?

fl$ may be class act (I don't know from experience) but their 4k price tags is ridiculous. I would put Express, Igloo and the others that charge more than 3k in the same bucket.

Sounds like you know this from experience. Fors ypur kid play on this team? This is what is wrong with so many organizations. I realize daddy coaches are part of the deal but if I owned one of these organizations I would want the best talent at every position I could get. That may mean a daddy coach has to be real and their kid may need to take a back seat. Harry Jacobs is a stand up guy and his organization does a lot of good. I wouldn't think egos and behavior like that wouldn't be tolerated. If an organization isn't willing to do what's best for the team beyond the daddy coaches kids then maybe it is time to take one of those other offers.

Only 2 left Outlaws this year. 1 went to Igloo 2nd team and 1 went to Igloo 3rd line. Outlaws improved, we will see how much.


Both kids will improve dramatically with better coaching and competition. You on the other hand will always be pathetic.

Where did you get this piece of nugget from? He was not the head coach last season so unless the current long time coaches leave it will be the same 3 guys, all dads.

Like to hear from parents of players that did the Brine tournament in VA last month. What did you think? Were the players top shelf? Good experience? Think there is any benefit for a 12 year old to do this? Thinking of this for my son for next year. He's a 2024.

Agree! Many parents just don't see it. The funny part about it, the coach thinks he's doing a great job... Outlaws raised their price, two hundred extra from last year, only one extra tournament. Leave while you still can.

What kind of other helmets, how many kids trying out?


Maybe 45-50 with 4 or 5 goalies. Most were plain helmets but nothing that I recognized that weren't recon.

Thanks Cocah. So you are saying the other goalie sucks and is the reason they had small leads or were behind? The coaches kid is the savior? My kid isn't a goalie but you can't pin a win or loss on the goalie alone. I was there last night and the coaches kid got lots of playing time which makes no sense since he is sure to get a spot on the team. In between his dad barked orders at him to bring him water. From what I saw there were 2 non Recon goalies there who faced maybe 3 or 4 legit shots. Not sure how you base talent on that. We may have missed out on an opportunity to pick up good talent at that position (which bith teams can use) because the coaches kid got so much time in the net.


So you were on one of the teams last year; you mentioned "we" missed an opportunity.

Did these coaches play college ball? Are they HS coaches? Trying to get a feel as to whether or not it is worth the price. Seems like they are good at the other age groups but this group does not seem to be as strong.

Having a pedigree of having played and come from a "big name" program doesn't make one a good coach. Look around! Many programs have this and coaching is sub-par. Yes the coach is a varsity assistant and yes he played in college. Most importantly, Yes; the kids learn and enjoy playing for him........

You're correct. Express is $3,800 for tuition alone this year + Box and I am sure there will be extras and that does not include travel expenses. I guess if you want to beat the bandits you need to have to bandit tax also.

Base price is under 3k. But there are optional extras, which I think is probably common.

I am guessing those kids aren't waiting for a supplemental tryout. Recon invites are supposed to go out Wed. So unless they didn't get enough talent at the tryout or they get turned down invites they won't be holding a supplemental tryput.

WSYL is a once in a lifetime experience, for 13 yr olds. There are rules that have to be adhered too, so the playing field is equal. But most of all, it's the comradery, and memoirs that will last forever.

They need to replace their #1 middie / face off kid, that went to another club. Unless they picked up a similar player, they will feel the loss. Head coach is the same, and does a great job with the players he has to work with.

Many better teams, particularly from the mid-Atlantic, do not wish to field teams specifically for this tournament, so they don't participate in the qualifiers.

Our team went to Denver and we went 2-3 and every parent and kid said they loved it. Without a doubt best lacrosse experience to date. The organizers of this event really immersed the kids in a great week that was jam packed with activities, fanfare, and fun. Not all games are competitive but that could be said about any tournament especially in pool play. It is extremely expensive, but honestly most of us are blessed with lifestyles that can afford the cost.

We also went to the Brine Tournament in July in Virginia and by contrast there was a lot of standing around, "huge" gaps in time between games that were underutilized, and just wasn't the same atmosphere and camaraderie.

When it comes to Denver it really came across more as a celebration of lacrosse, family, and country. I know it sounds cheesy but for those that have attended...they will understand where I am coming from. When it comes to being outside and beautiful, Colorado is fantastic. If you are more of a couch potato and into more sedentary pursuits the lure of the state won't be as compelling.

These mid-atlantic programs (and we all know who they are) can easily field a team to qualify for, and attend, the WSYL. They simply choose not to - for two reasons in my opinion: 1) they are concerned about being exposed without the edge in age that they are used to; 2) they are all in with regard to grade based, and do not want to do anything to move the lacrosse world closer to age based.

In my opinion it is the only gauge of a true champion ... just because most tournaments are grade based that does not make them a better gauge of who is the best, in fact quite the opposite. Not really that hard to win in a grade based tournament, just depends on how low you're willing to stoop with the holdbacks. I've seen many an outstanding lacrosse team with amazing players and plays get pushed around by kids obviously older and of course "win". Anyone could coach a team of older players and "win" a tournament. The WSYL and any other age based tournaments are the ONLY tournaments that qualify as any sort of championship etc.

They said they send them out after first tryout. You can keep coming back to try and be put on higher team or lower team.

Good choice. That club is perfect for beginners. Both teams are equal.

That's generally not the way the 2023 Express team rolls. There is depth and parity and all kids play.

1st time I've heard this about complaint about Express Haugen. Sounds like an angry parent. Agree with statement about depth and parity and playing time. Playing time is more equitable on this team than most. BTW there isn't a third line that I am aware of

2nd Team at S2S, no way not enough quality players.can pretty much only field one mid-level team at best. unless your from manhasset or rvc your out of luck.

I don't think they had a 2nd team so that guy is just talking nonsense. I see this comment all the time but how different is it from teams like express A and Bandits that attract 150 kids at tryout when you know they already spoke to the people they want on the team and everyone else is just there for the 2nd and 3rd team.

S2S didn't have anywhere near those numbers at tryouts. So 2nd team unlikely.

Were you at the tryouts? If not you have zero to add. Would you say other 2nd teams have no talent? S2S did good things with their first team so I would think there is a draw there. I was asking for people that were at tryouts. Not sure what being from Manhasset or RVC has to do with it. I know the guy that started it is from Manhasset but what does that have to do with RVC?

just spoke with my son who plays for express. and said it's true for big games - they play first line defense, attack and two lines midfield. and he said thats what all teams do. when you want to win the game, thats what you're meant to do. all kids know that.

Your forgetting 91 has a very good team at this level. If they have enough players on their Bandits team that qualify age wise, they will be a tough team to beat. Not a fan of the organization, but the team is good.

One mid level team at best? Maybe they're not top 3, but still good. Stop letting your bitterness cloud your view. I'm sure your son is happy on his team. And what, they wouldn't take kids from outside of those 2 towns if it improved them?

It means not enough kids accepted the invitation. So to feild a team they need more. Usually looking for back end players that will pay but not see the field when this happens.

If their attempts to do it with 2021 year are any indication, I wouldn't hold my breath. That team mostly ended up being the players that didn't make the A team, and a lot of them were from Nassau . . . it was a very weak A team, if not just a flat out B team .

Probably the same ones that were competitive last year and qualified. If they take 4 teams from North East, will likely be 2-3 from LI and 1-2 from CT/Westchester.

Played them this summer... I'm sure they have some summer birthdays but 15/16 I think not. Their ball movement and stick skills were so impressive, very motivating for my son to see that level of lacrosse.

Maybe you should leave your current coaching position and apply at F$G, according to you they are "only" c level team...

They sure will. I know some Express, Outlaws, and Legacy kids coming over.

F$G does a lot of very well run clinics during the year, I've also never really seen them at many tournaments but I would think they have a very good team.

The only spots to replace are the coaches kids and that's not happening. No upgrades.

So those teams develop the kid and then the "A" teams grab them. Ok, then I guess Outlaw and Recon are doing the right thing for their players and developing talent.

They place you on a team after the first and you can go back to the others to see if you can move up to a better team. Also I am sure they are trying to see if anyone else shows up because they did not like the results of their tryout

My son played on Express B last year, and will again this year. The player that your referring to was the primary face off kid, but not a fogo. He was a middie that took face-offs. He tried out again this year for Express A, but was not offered a spot, and has taken a spot on another team.

Many travel coaches are "legit", but there are a small number that advertise/claim they played lacrosse for certain universities and in all actuality they never did. Having played college lacrosse for a top program doesn't mean someone will make a good coach, but don't lie in order to bring more $$$ into the organization. It's not difficult to determine the truth.

Do your homework; coaches experience, any daddy ball on the team, coaches communication skills, and does the coach act like a lunatic during practice/tournaments in the sidelines... Just my opinion, if I'm paying upwards to 3K for someone to coach/interact with my kid I want to find out a few things about the coach and organization.

Their are so many quality teams out there. I can't imagine S2S having a competitive 2nd team. Their top team lost a lot of speed last year. But, who knows. We'll need to wait until we see some games.

Talent is most likely coming from kids that didn't make their first choice. At this point the top clubs sent their invites out, so it's down to the clubs that provide late multiple team options. It's all about the $$$$

They brought a few Outlaw coaches over. They must be serious about getting going. Not sure how they go from one team to many teams in one year. That's a big leap. Wonder why all of a sudden?

3 years 3 Programs for one outlaw coach- Other one would not have been brought back. Good luck with them

One of the coaches who switched over, on paper was listed as a Board Member - Director of Middle School Player Development last year for the Outlaws. Tell you the truth I don't know what he did for the organization if anything.

Bad judgement on the Outlaws to criticize a varsity HS coach. Seems like all their Board are HS coaches. Aren't they supposed to be high quality? Why would someone with an excellent reputation leave? Are all the other HS board members leaving? Seems like Trump's council is falling apart.

Ducks are good B+ team but get beat easily by the a teams. Coach is good, but unless you are top 4 attack top 4 def or line 1-2 middie, be prepared for very little playing time.

Coach, whats your definition of high quality, and yes H.S. coaches are supposed to be of high quality. Further more, someones reputation is subjective not objective. So, If they don't live up to their so call excellent reputation they are not retained. Finally, your political views have nothing to do and should not be mixed with youth lacrosse.

Here is the funny thing about HS coach coaching a 12 y/o club team. Their 1st commitment is to HS. So when spring comes, where is your coach going to be? I guarantee not on the sidelines of his club team.

The director of player development who left Outlaws for S2S did nothing in that role. Never was at one of our practices. We saw him at tryouts and than never again. He didn't do anything that he was suppose too.

I second that notion. Was at tryouts last August, but never shared any of his high quality or excellent reputation at any team practices.

Wait, give credit where credit is due. He ran the winter clinic, which wasn't included in the tuition, held in Deer Park. A complete waste of time and $$$.

It's on the same day the Outlaws are holding their 3 round of tryouts. Being he's an Ex. Outlaw Director he most likely trying to scoop up some remaining Outlaw on-lookers...

Yes. They'll be better than the other B+ clubs this year.


Kids team played them on a few occasions and went to a clinic in the past yr, seems like a well run program but not competitive enough on an A team level, at least not as of this summer


The reason why a stand alone Suffolk team wasn't established. Don't know the level of talent last years team had, but if the above is true, won't be any major gains if any.

Sounds like all of the HS coaches Outlaws scooped up. They need better ownership.

I would think if the team was going to be terrible they would have just scraped it. They have a team that is competitive at that level. Adding another that is crap doesn't help them if they are trying to build the brand.

This is BOC someone does not want you trying out so you can take playing time away from their little superstar. Why don't you contact the coaches and ask them the question.

History speaks for itself. All clubs offer spots on A team immediately after first tryouts - in many cases before. Supplementals are to see if the club can put together another team. And at $$$ per player -- the club makes out either way.

No A players pulled ever my friend. Took Empire green behind the wood shed in Devens and then put a total team effort in against Express North to end the season with the big W. Don't hate because your A team got beat buy a bunch of kids that were told they were athe B team. They never believe that and it showed. You would be better off on Express B than most of your so called A teams. The only reason they are considered a teams is because they are that organizations first team. Hahaha

Express B lost twice to True Blue last year not even close games, stop Express B people. At least the Warriors parents are claiming to be in the top 5 anymore. 4 and 5 would be True Blue and Empire Green. I think Express A will end up 1 then Bandits then the next three are a toss up. Good luck in the Fall and Winter see everyone in the Spring.

What's wrong with a few tryouts. Gives a chance for kids that didn't play well in a tryout to come back and have another chance. You don't always have to find something negative.

This is awesome! Neither of those teams play in ANY quality tournaments! Actually, at least True Blue played NXT. They got beat by a bunch of scrubs, but at least they played. Empire played in LAXFEST, which is a shell of what it once was. Get out and play some elite talent. Everyone on here is tired of both of you!

Nothing is wrong with a few tryouts. Since you draw large number of talent, why can't the tryouts be cut down to a week (2 tryouts) to fill rosters ?

Empire green lost to the warriors and will never come close to beating express. TB also only lost because they were the only team to play back to back games. First express and then Empire green right after. On one of the hottest days. Please

From the outside looking in it appears that way but the parents and kids on the team are happy and there is a CORE group of kids that remained with the team this year. You don't need to bring up that so many kids left the last couple years as that has been discussed to no end. The team lost a couple of really good players this year for personal reasons and no fault of the program. The reason there are still spots open is because the program is not just taking the best 25 kids at the tryout. If the talent doesn't meet a minimum threshold then the coach will not take the player. This gives the program room to add players, without having too many on the roster, if or when a kid or parent have buyers remorse and are unhappy with their current team. Continuous emails clogging your inbox is a small price to pay. You can dislike the Outlaws all you want but the team has really gelled in the past year and will continue to improve. They hope to be competitive with other teams but the main goal is for the kids to get better and have a positive experience.

here we go with TB excuses. It never ends. So let's get this straight - when you have a DECENT ( I use that term loosely) season and win a few games, that puts you in top 5? But when you lose, it's because it was hot and you played back to back games? Do you ever see a top 5 team on this board with excuses like that? no you don't. and you won't.
and I don't even think Empire Green and the Warriors ever played each other this summer so not sure where that bit of info came into this conversation.
If either of those teams keep the core kids/starters together for next season, they will beat TB again, and again

S2S really lost ground this year. They did not make the finals in any meaningful tourneys. Coach have dropped to lower quality tourneys. The first year they were a big surprise, but they can't attract any new A level talent.

TB charges $1750 they make so much money that they are scholar shipping all new players just to be good, you are a moron. How about they are a good team, well coached and some parents out there realize that and think there son could become a better player being coached by a College coach.

TB charges $1750 they make so much money that they are scholar shipping all new players just to be good, you are a moron. How about they are a good team, well coached and some parents out there realize that and think there son could become a better player being coached by a College coach.


How about the coaching staff and the success they have brought in different players. Top players who were sitting behind daddy coaches sons got fed up with it. You all are morons thinking they give out scholarships. Your just jealous they left your teams

What teams did they draw players from? Did they poach from Bandits/Express A/Igloo A? Did they get any players from the top two lines of those teams? Give us some details if you're going to imply such vast improvement. Team struggled at NXT from what I saw.

Wonder why they never went to play on TH when they had to pay to be on the team??? Shocking, not really. Dangling free tuition in front of people, then boosting how kids came to you b.c they got tired of the teams that helped develops them. But at least you admitted that TB is screwing over the other families. It's one thing to say the tuition is for pract space and extras, but i guess TB banks cash to recruit kids to play over the ones that paid. Wait to next year when those scholarshipped aren't anymore and see what happens.

Every club has their scholarship kids. They are the all star kids the Club doesn't want to lose. And the parents who are smart enough to use that to their advantage. Why not save $3-$4k a year if you can?
And with recruiting rules changed, they can save a lot of money and pay when it's going to count. Everyone does it. Sounds like your issue is that smaller Clubs can now afford to do it-- so free tuition is not so exclusive anymore.

The reason they struggled that day at NXT was b/c the grass was not properly cut for the tournament.

The fact that you guys think TB needs to recruit kids is insane. Everyone comes for coach cat. He does not need to give away free tuition. You all are jealous. Grow up.

If you think they are banking enough cash with their tuition to the extent that they can offer up a whole slew of scholarships for one grade, let alone others, then maybe you should go back and learn some math!

As compared to what - a HS coach or a perennial club team coach? Wow - a college associate head coach (NOT and assistant coach) of a top D2 college program is just so low on the list of coaching accomplishments!

The obsession with TB is out of control. I'm not a TB parent; however, I have seen them play in several tournaments. Sometimes they look very good, sometimes they look mediocre. They have beaten good teams a few times, and they have lost to bad teams a few times. That's what you get with kids this age. Did they get some new players? I'm sure they did. Did they offer scholarships to them all? I'm sure they didn't. Maybe they offered one to a very good player, but who knows. Most players who move from team to team at this age are doing so because they were not getting playing time at their former club. That's not to say they can't be difference makers though. They certainly can on the right team. Talk to me about which team is best in 2-3 years when many more kids have hit/gone through puberty. Until then, enjoy the experience with your kid and stop caring about too 2,3,4 or 5 teams.

Most all of the teams below the 7th grade are all coached by JC - are there fathers that coach TB teams above that grade? Absolutely, but that isn't relevant to this age group. And even then, considering some of the lax pedigrees of said fathers, they seem to be fully qualified and accomplished coaches. And, as though there is no fathers coaching the 'top' programs . . . !

You really want to break down what it actually costs? Because it's no where near the tuition clubs charge. Profit margins on travel lacrosse are double digits. Most clubs are using school fields for free in spring and summer and run their Club out of their own home so minimal overhead (very few exceptions). The majority of tuition money goes to Directors and Coaches. So if a Director forgoes a few dollars for better talent the theory would be it will pay dividends in the long run. Maybe you should go back and learn some basic fundamentals of business!

What teams did they draw players from? Did they poach from Bandits/Express A/Igloo A? Did they get any players from the top two lines of those teams? Give us some details if you're going to imply such vast improvement. Team struggled at NXT from what I saw.



The reason they struggled that day at NXT was b/c the grass was not properly cut for the tournament.


That is 100% accurate. I was there.

Except when you have as many as 30+ kids (parents) that failed to pay their fees last season . . . and when you're only charging half of what other clubs are, I don't see how TB and similar clubs are making the profits you think they are.

Can we move on from TB and move on from bashing all the teams, every week it's someone new. Can there be any informative info. put on here. It really is a shame the stupidity that goes on here. I hope most of you realize half the people that post about a particular team are not even on that team, they are just looking to stir the pot. They are looking to get a rise out of all you parents that respond to this nonsense, grow up. I really doubt half the posts about TB being the greatest and all the excuses for losing games were from a TB parent. That goes for the same for any other program just TB happens to be the flavor of the week. Some people love TB some people hate them, some people love Express some people hate them etc... Let's use this sight for what it was designed for, good luck to all in the upcoming season.

Wow! Cyber bullying at it's finest. People are saying TB makes excuses, yet all the talk about free tuition for better players to join. That's an excuse in and of itself. If you lose it's because TB gave free tuition to quality players that other organizations developed. As a father of a newly recruited TB player, I cannot say the previous teams developed him at all. The position he plays had zero training from his previous 3k/year team in regards to development. Don't fool yourselves. Natural talent trumps all the BS your over priced club will tell you. All the money on the world cannot transform your B rated son into an All American.

TB charges $1750 they make so much money that they are scholar shipping all new players just to be good, you are a moron. How about they are a good team, well coached and some parents out there realize that and think there son could become a better player being coached by a College coach.


How about the coaching staff and the success they have brought in different players. Top players who were sitting behind daddy coaches sons got fed up with it. You all are morons thinking they give out scholarships. Your just jealous they left your teams


Wonder why they never went to play on TH when they had to pay to be on the team??? Shocking, not really. Dangling free tuition in front of people, then boosting how kids came to you b.c they got tired of the teams that helped develops them. But at least you admitted that TB is screwing over the other families. It's one thing to say the tuition is for pract space and extras, but i guess TB banks cash to recruit kids to play over the ones that paid. Wait to next year when those scholarshipped aren't anymore and see what happens.

I wouldn't want my son coached by a D2 college assistant coach who is a hack and try's to intimidate Ref's when he's losing.


Explain exactly how JC is a hack - explaining would require specific details. And i'd rather my son played for a coach that yelled at the refs than a coach that verbally rips the heads off of his players - saw way too much of the latter last season from some of the 'top' program coaches.

lol natural talent. You do not know lacrosse at all. Athletes who train hard and put in the time are the ones who are successful. Practice and on your own time is where you get better. Not during games.

Typical TB lie, "father of a newly recruited TB player". This post was from an assistant coach, whether it was JC or a daddy coach.

If you think they are banking enough cash with their tuition to the extent that they can offer up a whole slew of scholarships for one grade, let alone others, then maybe you should go back and learn some math![/quote]


You really want to break down what it actually costs? Because it's no where near the tuition clubs charge. Profit margins on travel lacrosse are double digits. Most clubs are using school fields for free in spring and summer and run their Club out of their own home so minimal overhead (very few exceptions). The majority of tuition money goes to Directors and Coaches. So if a Director forgoes a few dollars for better talent the theory would be it will pay dividends in the long run. Maybe you should go back and learn some basic fundamentals of business!

Typical costs

-Uniform including shooting shirt = $100
-Tournaments ($1800 to $1200 each ÷ 24 players)= $75 each
-Winter indoor training space - $300 hr ÷ 24 players = 19 each for 1.5 hrs
-outdoor training space - $150 hr ÷ 24 players = 10 each for 1.5 hrs

Add up what you get from your club and see how much the club banks. Most coaches don't get paid all that well either

Coaches get paid ~$1,500 - 2,000 for head coach, a little less for assistant. There is also expenses for travel and hotel for coaches for away tournaments. You left out a lot on uni costs - helmet alone more than double the costs there. Add in a bag or anything else {jacket) , and you are beyond $100 before the helmet! 24 players? Not that many on every team - probably not the average based upon all of the teams my 3 sons have played on over the years with numerous programs.

Ok so do the math
Uniform. 100
Tournaments (5) 375
Indoor winter (15) practices 285
Outdoor practices-- free. No one is paying for those fields! After school anyone can use the fields

Total 760pp. So for TB it's a 2 for price of 1. Half the team is paying for the other half. JC gave up 11 grand and based on how many teams he's coaching he made it up in other grades.

If your son got cut you should be happy. At least your not the schmuck writing a check for someone else's kid!

Not that many on every team - probably not the average based upon all of the teams my 3 sons have played on over the years with numerous programs.[/quote]

Then divide it by the number of players on your team. Most teams average 22 players, but a lot of the b/c teams more for some reason, Truthfully and off subject. Take away 3 or 4 players for coaches kids and scholarshipped players.

$4500 for 3 coaches ÷ 18 players (hopefully that is better) = $250

You can Google the price of helmets (cascade s $295) and other equipment/clothes they add in as "extras" but since the club's buy in bulk or partner up with companies, warrior is doing it, they get pretty steep discounts on the stuff. Wonder if the gets passed down or in their bank?

Plus most tournament are far less than the 1800 ( even Google that) but figure $100 on the high side per player

Hotel room, what around $250 a night. Gas and tolls, another $100.

Insurance, (even though most just seem to bank on us lacrosse) $45 a player.

The point is, less than $1000 of what you pay goes towards the actual lacrosse experience, not including the extra clothes and equipmet some clubs required to get.

Some clubs out their breakdown the cost of were all the tuition fees go to, but most just give a price, that GOES UP every year, and say pay this.

Every team probably has 1-2 free rides, every team has kids recruited and promised a spot before tryouts, every team has kids never given the chance to prove themselves vs. some of the starting line that is perceived to be stronger or is the coach's son or the coach's sons best friend. It's the ugly under belly of this sport and youth sports in general. Find a team that your kid gets decent minutes and you can afford. If you are spending north of $3000/year on youth lax to watch the starting line play the majority of the game then you are getting hosed. Unless your kid loves collecting t-shirts and taking pictures where it's obvious they didn't see the field since they are not dropping in sweat. This BS on BOTC is out of control. good luck to all kids. I hope they all improve and have fun this coming season. Fellow parents sit back and enjoy your kids. They'll be off to college before we know it and you'll look back at all this nonsense and realize your craziness on this site was for you trying to fulfill YOUR dreams of being able to say your kid plays for one of the strongest teams.

Why did Express Haugen take so many kids this year? Roster size getting close to 30. Are there so many hold backs that they didn't have enough to go to Denver? Or is this just like the 2022 team that has over 30 kids but only 15 play?

This is the Express status quo - half a team subsidizing the other half! Keep laying out those big bucks so you can say your son 'plays' on Express!

Is the original post from an Express parent? How do you know they have taken 30 kids. I am not an Express parent but I know many people on the team and we have discussed team dynamics. Nobody mentioned the team size was expanding considerably from years past.

Well they added players this year, at least 3 of them so unless they got rid of someone they are approaching 30

Express added a lot more than 3. Wait for that first practice. They didn't want to cut kids they should have so now we have to many kids.

That seems reasonable given they have a few players that cannot compete in the WSYL due to age ineligibility and they want to field at least 24 kids for that event. 27 is large but not wholly unreasonable given the potential for injuries.

Its a lot of kids when only 14 of them will play, there will be a lot of unhappy kids/parents. The will all complain but they will keep coming back for more.

AJ has a very good track record of playing all kids equitably. This may not be the case for the big games but he compensates for this and, over time, all kids get enough playing time. How do you know he will only play 14 kids?

Nope. Check the email. Even the kids that played zero minutes in some games are still on roster. Ridiculous. Why they stay for the torture I don't know. Embarrassing for all of us. And now we added 5 more kids? I get we have to defend the title in Denver but still.

Problem is last time they played Bandits won big. This time of the year everyone makes additions and thinks they have the best team. Let the games play out. Express is definitely older

Outlaws can be subbed with 91 Warriors. Igloo needs to drop a little more. Other than that this is a good outline going in. Who knows who will come out on top.

Great Post! Have two in college. One high D3 one mid D1. Neither of them played on any of these super teams. Played where they could get on the field and compete in decent tournaments. Did well in individual showcases and prospect days. Both had interest all up and down their spectrums. Both chose situations where they could be successful academically and athletically. Point of the story, play on a team where your son is on the field and getting better against the best competition you can find. With new rules fall of 10th grade and following summer mean everything for recruiting now. Until that point, play on a team that gets your son the most reps. 7,8 and 9th is your time to get better and improve. These new rules are great for the slow growers and late bloomers. Measure your son's travel team by how much better he is after the travel year. If he's no better find another team. I remember when my son played travel, he would come back to his town team and play so much better. That's what its all about. Getting better. Somewhere along the way travel has become more about the name on the jersey than improving as a player.

Very good post. It takes some time to educate yourself navigating through the youth lacrosse maze. I found a organization with a coach that has improved my sons game. The team is very good, most importantly the coaches put the work in and the team is sold on their coaching philosophy. Along with that, the team more or less flies under the radar. You hit the nail right on the head, it's seems like it's all about the name than developing the player. Beware, don't get involved in the lacrosse "reality show." Form the outside, I see it going on all the time. Some parents will literately befriend others, and then cut the friends head right off without blinking an eye.

Who gives a flying frogs fat [lacrosse] if Empire is ranked #3, #6, or #23?What matters is that the kids seem to be really enjoying themselves and are improving. They are playing in pretty good tournaments and doing well. The coaching is awesome and they treat the kids great. Parents all seem to get along also. If the team continues to stay together they will just get more competitive.

Empire did good against express. Only lost by 2 [lacrosse]. Definitely improving.

1. Bandits beat express soundly last time out added top defensemen

Outlaws can be subbed with 91 Warriors. Igloo needs to drop a little more. Other than that this is a good outline going in. Who knows who will come out on top.

How can Empire be #6 when they beat #3 True Blue. BTW until TB beats Igloo & S2S they will always be ranked behind them.


TB tied S2S 2 years ago. And TB went to OT with Express. Last time S2S played Express they got smoked. Looking forward to next meet up!

It depends on which teams go to what. Blatant usually gets a nice turnout. Columbus day one has had decent teams show up. And Tri Star the day after Thanksgiving has had good competition.

I would agree. Blatant number one and Columbus Day number two. The day after Thanksgiving Tri Star starts to get weak by seventh grade because less teams go and teams that do go are never close to full strength anyway. But that one is probably number three.

TB struggled against out of state teams that were not even that good. They did not come close to playing the best teams at NXT and did not do well. They made some questionable player moves this tryout season. Taking bench players from other teams or kids from other teams B team shows that TB was either not that good this past season if these kids make an impact or they won't make any impact at all and TB will not improve. Don't expect much from TB this season.

All the people posting about TB are not TB parents, its some dbag trying to be funny. All you dads out that keep responding are even dumber for going back and fourth. The kids are 12 years old who cares whose team is better or ranked #1 as long as they get better have fun is all that should matter as a parent. Unfortunately half of the dads on here never played a sport and they are living through there kid. 90% of the kids can care less what the name on there jersey is, they just want to have fun with there friends and play Lax.

No parent from the Outlaws are making any such predictions. Similar to the previous post, kids are just looking to get better and, with a significant number of players returning, have a stable platform to continue to improve.

Which local Fall tournament is better than Blatant? They have a division for all levels of play. It is usually in October so the weather is still good. Are there better tournaments off Long Island? probably. But for Fall ball and Locale it is a great option.

The TriStar Express run tourneys are awful and glorified play days. They are moving from Post Thanksgiving to the last week in Oct this year but buyer beware.

Channy must have thanksgiving plans this year.

Maybe because people do travel that weekend and there is another tourney LI that Saturday. What should we all be wary of, btw. The tourney has been well run in the past both the Summer and Fall events. My guess is they will bring in some out state teams by moving the date. Thanks for useful and insightful input...

You are thinking about the South Shore Thunder, not Shore2Shore (S2S). This past summer the only LI team S2S lost to was Express. They beat Outlaws and Legacy. Never played the Bandits, who had beaten them the previous summer and they never played Igloo but who from the Island did?

Beating the outlaws and legacy is not saying much. Need to play express, bandits, warriors, true blue and empire.

The question wasn't to debate if they are an A team or not by your standards. Call then the 1st if that makes you feel better. If you don't have an answer for the question move on.

You're putting Warriors, True Blue and Empire (Empire!?!?!?!) in the same category as Express and Bandits? S2S has played Express multiple times in tournaments over the last two years and beaten them twice and lost more than that. How many times have those other teams beaten Express? (the answer is zero)

S2S doesn't "need" to play those teams. If they are at the same tournament and they are matched up, then they will play them.

Is this the Same S2S that lost to SYAG, Outlaws and Igloo last year in scrimmages? Solid team but not elite level by any stretch.

You are referring to the wrong team. S2S is different from South Shore Thunder which pulls kids from Express Haugen.

South Shore Thunder does not pull kids from Express Haugen. They are a total separate team put together from Merrick, Bellmore and Wantagh. They are all good friends and they enter in around 3 tournaments. The kids all play on separate club teams Haugen, Trueblue, Recon, Igloo and maybe a few others. They play together when they can all for fun.

They don't have a new team. They advertised as if a Suffolk team was forming, did a quick bait and switch then added to their last years team. You say New Team, so what are you saying about the kids that played on the team last year who are returning. Better watch what you ask for, you'll be shopping for another team again next year.

I saw the new kids at tryouts and they're a much needed breath of fresh air to jump the club up another level. Don't be scared to play them.

FL$ at the 2023 is a non entity, they will not compete with Bandits, Haugen, Trueblue, Igloo, Empire and S2S. Even Hedstrom, Legacee and the Warriors would beat them. They have never had a good team at this age group, plus they play in horrible tournaments. I have never seen them play anywhere. But good luck FL$ I hope your team does well this up coming season.

I understand your frustration with NP, about 10 families combined have left your teams over last two years at this age group and a total of 15 families from multiple towns Huntington included have specifically left the top team, trying to isolate negative comments to NP might be good for business, but issues are wide and deep. Continuing to post disparaging nonsense about other peoples children will only continue this negative loop, your call, but probably best to let it go.

Fl$ secret? It is no secret. They charge a lot of money and most tournaments they enter are their own tournaments and sometimes do tournaments with 3D. These are B level tournaments but since they run the tournament they can call it an A bracket. FL$ at their own tournaments set up the brackets so they play the worst teams and put the best teams in the other brackets Top two make the play offs from each bracket and they get smoked by a better B team in the playoffs after going undefeated beating C teams in pool play. They then tell their parents how good they did by making the playoffs when in reality they only beat the three worst teams that joined the tournament. 2018 is FL$ last good team. After that they are B and C teams at FL$. It's no secret. You never see them at the good tournaments at any age group. If they went they would have to enter the B bracket and explain to the parents why they are not playing in the A bracket. Easier to enter their own tournaments call the bracket filled with B teams an A bracket which they don't pay for and charge the parents a lot of money and control who they play to get in the playoffs. It is that simple.

Other programs/parents want to drag them into their soap opera lives because misery loves company.

All tournaments matter, that's why the kids play games. To win. Losers like to start chirping excuses. Very funny!

What are you even talking about?

Talking about PB and his arrogance.


I guess arrogance must be in the eye of the beholder. My son is on the team and we have not witnessed any arrogance on the part of PB or any of the coaches.

This must be your first year. I saw a lot of them at tryouts also.

Other programs/parents want to drag them into their soap opera lives because misery loves company.


Or it's because they're not very good, play in weak tourneys and claim to be one of the top teams on the island.

We don't claim anything.....it's the pot stirrers that claim that. As for not "being any good" and playing in weak tournaments; you know where to find us and/or contact our coach to play/scrimmage......oh that's right, you don't have a kid that plays.

We're not giving away our secrets to BOTC.


Fl$ secret? It is no secret. They charge a lot of money and most tournaments they enter are their own tournaments and sometimes do tournaments with 3D. These are B level tournaments but since they run the tournament they can call it an A bracket. FL$ at their own tournaments set up the brackets so they play the worst teams and put the best teams in the other brackets Top two make the play offs from each bracket and they get smoked by a better B team in the playoffs after going undefeated beating C teams in pool play. They then tell their parents how good they did by making the playoffs when in reality they only beat the three worst teams that joined the tournament. 2018 is FL$ last good team. After that they are B and C teams at FL$. It's no secret. You never see them at the good tournaments at any age group. If they went they would have to enter the B bracket and explain to the parents why they are not playing in the A bracket. Easier to enter their own tournaments call the bracket filled with B teams an A bracket which they don't pay for and charge the parents a lot of money and control who they play to get in the playoffs. It is that simple.



You get great coaching and they run some great clinics, as of this 2023 team I heard they made some improvements this year.


F%G seems like a very well run organization, coaching, clinics, etc. But as another poster indicated, you don't see their teams around, they sanction their own tournaments which allow them to bracket their teams to their advantage. At this point who really knows the level of talent the organization has attracted, but the $3900.00 price tag(swag and all) is a bit too rich for my flavor. Even if considered, practices would have to be held around the corner for me for that price. All in all, there are great coaches and kids apart of this organization like many others.

You poor thing. You're basing the stature of your team on a fall tournament? Come on now, we all know that fall tourneys don't mean anything.

Regarding F$G, why would somebody pay all that money to be on an B/C team, I know they are not seen much at tourneys but they have to be competitive and have good teams for people to pay that kind of money.

They have grades where their teams are more competitive - not sure they are worth the $ even then considering there are cheaper programs that are at the same level as they are. That said, you seem to be another one that thinks the lax world exists as AA and then everyone else are B and C teams. Once again, particularly on LI, there are a bunch of teams that are not AA but ARE A that fall between AA and B.

who cares other than you? you must be pretty bored to have to think about this all day, enough for you to post it. maybe you work at a gas station, and it pisses you off that they are car pooling and not making them fill up at your place. why don't you throw some nails into the street so they have to stop to get their flat fixed.

all we've seen the last couple days is "team x" sucks, etc etc. are you that uptight and insecure? i hope your kid is able to tune you out for his own sake. you must be a dream to be around.

He/she has a point. Fall tournaments are used to see what's working and what isn't. Generally, there are new kids that coaches are trying to get a feel for (at different positions). Also, not everyone takes fall seriously. There are players that don't show for practices/tournaments, etc... The boys play/practice all fall, winter and spring to prepare for the summer season. Of course they want to win all of the tourneys that they enter (coaches AND players), but make no mistake, it is all prep for the summer.

Incorrect. In the past FL$ has taken 30 kids. They will give out more than 30 offers because they know not everyone will accept. Sometimes 30 do accept. Last year the 2021Nassau team had 9 attack and a hand full of defense because all the attack accepted the offer. They moved attack players to defense. They still had more than 6 attack.

The owner of Blatant is always prowling this web site, so he will answer you soon, or maybe not.

Express, 91,Legacy, S2S, & Outlaws will all have teams there. It's not even Sept and you are asking for a schedule


SYAG will be there also, and this year we will beat igloo,express,91,S2S and the rest of the teams to win it all.


I live in Sachem and it's so confusing/frustrating on the youth level. SSC, SYAG, Rising Elite (north only) waiting on something from the East side, LI premiere and the East and North clubs. Add to that, all the good kids play club. All that and it doesn't translate to the High School teams.

How many players do they carry on the team?


They are not like many other clubs that take 26-30+ kids.


Incorrect. In the past FL$ has taken 30 kids. They will give out more than 30 offers because they know not everyone will accept. Sometimes 30 do accept. Last year the 2021Nassau team had 9 attack and a hand full of defense because all the attack accepted the offer. They moved attack players to defense. They still had more than 6 attack.



We are talking about the 2023 team.

We're not. I'm paying $2,600 and only 20 practices they claim as a minimum. Not sure when those practices will happen..

Don't think they can attract that many. Supplemental tryouts are in a couple of weeks



Why would you say that, I know for a fact they get good turnouts at there tryouts, I'm not sure however of the talent of the kids.


FL$ gets about 40 to 50 kids at tryouts. Sometimes a few more. In the old days they would limit tryout numbers it to 69 kids and it would be filled in one week. So the best players would go to them. It has changed now. This is now a last resort team for most. Not all but most. Until a few years ago they did not have any teams younger than 7th or 6th grade. They are relatively new to youth lacrosse. They need to make changes in the way the do things to get back to the glory days. They need to make changes at the youth level to attract talented kids , develop and keep kids from leaving. It is a shame because they have so many college connections but they now lack the talent to do anything for the kids.

All teams are picked the the same way . You could have 9 attack, 12 Middies, 10 poles the way they do things. You have been lucky so far that has not happened yet but it could happen.

I don't think they lack talent, they have some very good players, just not sure how deep the team is.

They don't have anymore A teams. All are B level teams except for 2019 and 2020 which is B plus. From 2021 and younger they are B level and get worse each year.

Complete Losers. We are hanging out with the family enjoying the last few days of summer. When your kid is sidelined for overuse injuries, and is a burn out in 10th grade with major anxiety problems because you forced him to fulfill your dream in life, don't wonder what happened.

There's no reason for that team to be called SYAG anymore. Most of the starters are from other towns and play for other teams.

This topic is so old. Get over the name already and move on.
They have 23 or so kids on the roster, 4 from other towns.

No such thing as AA. There is A and B. AA is a marketing tool. Anyone who gets fooled by that never played a sport and will never understand.

Enough. Fl$ is a b team. They lost to 3 villages 11-3 at their own tournament. They are not A or AA or B plus. They may not even be a B team. If you don't understand what that means we will make it simple. They are not a good team.

Correction. Not that it makes a difference but FL$ lost to Three village 13-2 not 11-3. They entered the lax clash weak B division and finished 1win 2 loses. They did not enter the A division.
