Any input on strong travel teams for the fall?
When do they announce coaches, Express, 91,or
Geese? Who is the best bang for your buck?


Here is my take:

Express - solid coaching with Channy at the helm. Very large team and playing time is limited if you're not on the first or second line. The first line gets all the love in games, 2nd line plays when they need a break and no one else sees the field. Nothing wrong with that as long as you know it going in and your kid is good enough to break into the top lines.

91 - train wreck last year for a variety of reasons, mostly related to the HC who is now gone. The 91 organization is making a major investment in coaching resources to right the ship. I see a lot of opportunities here as 91 is looking to shake things up and get back on track.

Geese - solid team that upgraded players last year putting them on top. Good coaching. I doubt much will change and any new player will really have to stand out at tryouts to make an impression. If it ain't broke don't fix it and Geese doesn't have much to fix.

Just want to dispute the "if it ain't broke" line. If you don't change a couple of kids each year, then you get passed by. If it ain't broke, you still gotta fix it. No matter what team it is.

Just take a look at 9d1's record last year and they can hardly be called a "train wreck". They also played Box all winter and had an awesome record. The new head coach, O'keefe along with Gillis and Mule will provide a stable environment for a great bunch of kids who are a strong core which has played together for 3 years. New facility being readied for the fall for practice for all teams. They don't keep 28-30 kids to have 15 of them keeping the bench warm either. Definitely a team worth taking a look at for learning great skills, conditioning, and team work.

All those teams are good. And at this age there is a lot of teams still building and need new faces to improve. And my guess is 9! will likely add, Geese like any team will look to add, and Express will always adds. That's why they are doing the top team and an i between team. It seems these special arrangement teams never last more than a season. Maybe this one does. But it is only successful building a second team from bottom and moving up. Not the top and moving down. Parent egos cant process it and move on. And it usually takes commitment from the parents and coaches. 9! Warriors at the 2023 level is a prime example of a successful 2nd team.

You are correct: it is a "NO GO" for me with 9d1. Just an observer who is sharing an opinion. It appears you think your opinion is the only one that counts. Only time will tell!!

It means a kid will have to stand on his head at tryouts to break into a team looking to trim numbers already. When you consider pre-tyrouts where some kids may already have a spot that arent on the team this year it will make it even harder.

If your kid is good and hasn't played for a travel team before, go to 91 tryouts. Probably the most opportunity for spots with the most potential for improvement. Just my two cents. Good luck!

All teams that are good in the smaller clubs have a retention problem. Your best kids will eventually leave. That's why we have prices going up when the market is saturated with teams. Parents pay for the top clubs when they see what extra money buys them.

Sounds like you were just cut from the tryouts... Only town team that team lost to last year was an Islip team that can beat most teams that age.

Those players from 9d1 have played on that team before they were with the other one and only play lacrosse so they do multiple teams. I wouldn't put my kid through that but they do.

This team will be the dark horse of B not A...if anything.

There's a lot of money grabs out there that don't put a good product out. Especially B teams I know some B teams from big companies can beat a town team. Legacyyy charged there teams extra $125 a tournament sometimes $250 for 2. For a $1000 tournament where's the extra money go ??? MONEY GRAB !! Go outside Long Island tryouts are $40 $50 bucks .

I'm not too sure how it works, but I would guess to be the best team you need to win the tournaments that the best teams are playing in. Has that happened? No.....Ok, lets keep the TB talk down until that happens.

Nothing wrong with being a strong 2nd level team. Don't come here saying you're the best without having beaten the best.

This is the week to join an elite team, hands down. The top three all have tryouts. Tryout now while you can and not in 7th or 8th grade when you missed the boat.why? In my opinion it is very beneficial to be with the clubs that are part of these now forming lax federations.

Doubt it. tryouts numbers were weak. Igloo goalie much better and 24 lost a few of its best players one of which went to Igloo.

We played a lot of teams and never matched up against them at 2025. My opinion is stick with the bigger clubs. Their 2nd teams are usually better than the 2nd tier clubs A teams. Leggacee and Express have really good coaching and teams for their 2nd teams at this age. Probably because those the best teams in the age.

Didn't have the numbers this evening for 3 teams. But a lot of good players were out there. Should be two very good teams.

Haha. True. He is always at practices and tournaments. Just another hater whose kid doesn't get any playing time on the A team.

For the person who said he counted 38 kids- you're full of crap and obviously was not there. Channy team alone has 32 kids. I was there and can say at least 55 kids. Maybe about 15 that were wearing helmets from other clubs or town teams.

"Channy team alone has 32 kids" You say that like it's a good thing??! That Express has a penchant to field teams that are almost as large as a college roster is a problem for everyone but Channy as he collects his $.

S2S. Team to watch out for. This year.

New head coach (O'Keefe), new indoor practice facility. Box lacrosse in the winter. This team is definitely a priority.

S2S is coached by the coach who quit 9d1. Hopefully, he took all the drama with him when he left. lol5tnnuy

Express parents don't know each other, let alone talk to each other. They just stand in line to praise almighty MC (Chucky)!!! No drama is laughable ... wait to another kids parents pays MC more $$$$ and kids on the first line move down... going to happen!!

All is well in goose land, NOT... Little attackman playing 2024 and 2025 makes everyone real happy. There are Geese parents that hate each other... can't wait for the drama to unfold with the WI crew when the new WI kid takes a starting middie spot. Should be interesting.

Best part of this is that the Director is smart and made sure the older son is on 91. So his Chammy boy doesn't play for his own program or the catholic school feeder express, he plays for Mule and Turrini both now part of 91 2025. Can't make this stuff up.

And now they have angry WI daddy coach who's son is sure to grab a 1st line middie spot from another kid while ol' daddy boy works his way over to the coaching sideline. People wanna know who's coaching the Geese, huh? Give it time and you'll know. Good luck with all that!

They can't even beat town teams and that's even when they have help from the 9d1 kids. They should just fold the hitmen program up. What a joke. Talk about waste of money.


Sounds like you were just cut from the tryouts... Only town team that team lost to last year was an Islip team that can beat most teams that age.

Those players from 9d1 have played on that team before they were with the other one and only play lacrosse so they do multiple teams. I wouldn't put my kid through that but they do.

This team will be the dark horse of B not A...if anything.


You got that right Katy Perry!!


The ninedwon kids will not appear in any of those games this year. Fact

Great point by another post..... West Islip parents will destroy this team. No future for that team wit that leadership. Would never send my kid there to play even with Kuttin' selling ice to an Eskimo. That's funny that Kuttin's kid plays for 9D1. Wonder how he spins that.


We let a lot of things slide here but Mr. Anonymous from Commack talking about a 10 year old kid is not only unacceptable but is quite frankly pathetic. If I see another post about a player, you will be banned from this site.

Lots of talk about who's the best and who are terrible. Which coach is horrible and which team is pay to play.
How about we all play each other (at least once a season) instead of allowing our clubs to decide which tournaments we play. We all know our clubs avoid playing certain clubs.

I get the "business" aspect of 10 year old lacrosse, but the big bad parents on the sidelines, and this forum. pounding their chests need a reality check.

I want to look on Tourney Machine and see all the Bog Boys playing on same day on same field....
Geese
9d1
Express
Igloo
etc.

No Excuses!

And then forget about getting legitimate, but possibly negative comments about the issues that may arise on any current team.

How do you decipher the legitimate posts among all the pages of inane comments about daddy coaches, mothers tramp stamps, etc. You cant have it both ways. Lacrosse is the only sport I've seen that has a message board like this. Travel hockey, football, etc. They get by alright. Some of the comments are informative. Some are funny. Most are ignorant.

Great question and thought.

We are actually going to be changing the 'permissions' so that everyone that posts either has to have a screen name like you suggested or at the very least, myself & BOTC moderators will know who the Anonymous poster is to help filter what some of these folks say. Thoughts on those proposals anyone? Your feedback is important to us.

Great idea, yesterday you listed a town where someone posted from or is regeistered to. I live in that town and never posted any of that insulting garbage. I'm not a fan of insulting people anonymous and anyone who insults kids should be punched in the face. My feedback is post people names, emails, phone codes, anything that can identify the people doing this. My name is Lou and I live in commack.
Lou, appreciate the feedback and keeping your posts clean. Thank you, Tom

I think the dialogue is better anon. But it's catch 22 because you get a lot of nonsense when it's complete anon. Maybe a site logon with anon posts. That way maybe it's self policing. I want to hear feedback, both good and bad and that works better anon. However, when it's good, somebody feels a need to cut it down and when it's bad, the comments can go over the top.

I don't see the point in the screen name.... if someone is a loser troll, theyll just post under some non-descript name that doesn't identify them.

I'd rather see BOTC embarrass the posters who put out the tough guy/derogatory comments

I agree with you both - it's a double edge sword per se' but if we were to change the permissions and make everyone register with a display name/screen name, we would hope this would stop the derogatory comments but still allow people to share their experiences and opinions as this is your 5th amendment right but if there is a post attacking a child, making false accusations, defaming a person/company, etc., we then will know who the poster is and take action accordingly.

More likely the young man is of recruiting age (he is) and his father knows the limited exposure his son will get playing for Legacy. It's not like his dad actually coaches. I doubt the argument that he doesn't want to play for his dad has any validity. Most importantly, "eating your own dog food" mean you believe in your product. Clearly, not the case here.

There is actually a second legacy owner son who also does not play for the program. His son did not make the A-Team and was too talented for the B team. Imo it's nice that legacy did not take an owner son on a team just because he was the owner

You keep touting it, if any kids are on any of the teams listed above, it means nothing. The team is an all star team. Go play Dukes Nationals.

Where does this team practice? I can't find their website or tryout info? Who are the coaches?

Oh, that's right. They don't practice because they're not a real team. There is no website or tryout because it's not a real team. The coaches are two jerkoffs that have never played lacrosse at any level and are just forcing their kids to play more lacrosse than they need too.

Coach, please go away with this garbage.

That's 60 A level players for Channy to develop. He will generously offer each young man a spot and will likely start with two teams of about 22 or 23. Then he will collect about 3500 bucks each and get started on his two A team world dominance plan!

Throughout the year Channy will recruit and add and add and add more A (and A+) players from across the world to the rosters until the sidelines at tournaments look like Times Square at rush hour. Don't complain as you don't want to get kicked off the Train!

Last step of the plan is making a third team of A+ players once the total signed up gets to around 70 ! There you have it, The prediction here is that Express will have three teams in this grade by next summer. It will be a great experience, I can assure you, In Channy we trust!

Oh, did I forget the part where he laughs his way to the bank?

Who would make their son play down at this age just to be the best? You are better off playing your own age and good competition then playing on an A team a grade beneath. Plus what kid wants to say that they play down? How embarrassing!

A lot of choices out there, have at it and have great season. I personally am looking forward to next 10 months and having my son playing for the Express. In my opinion they offer great coaching at this age and great training. Is it free, no. But if I don't like the cost or anything else, I am free to go elsewhere.

The coaches put the team together because their kids don't play on their real teams. This was the only way to make sure they get enough playing time. Basically, this team is a product of a couple of dads that won't accept the fact that their kids just are not nearly as good as they think they are.

And invitations are out, be sure to count heads at practice, and expect to get to 25. Then pay attention because if your boy isn't in the top 15, plan on Johnnie being a practice dummy.

Plenty of good kids don't get to play.

Specially with Channy coaching the A team. He only plays the first line 90% of the game. Now he even has reclassified kids. Your son won't see the field. Enjoy your T-shirt.

Do you mean he took 3 kids from the 2024 express teams and put them on the 2025 express Channy team for the 17-18 season? Were these kids playing up in the past or actually repeating a grade in order to play down?

Blast is doing the same thing. 2 midfielders from 2024 have reclassed and are playing with Blast. I guess the new coaches were instructed to win. Pathetic, but that's the new way of lacrosse.

Polysilicone-29 and Silicone Quaternium-18 are not soluble in water. Therefore they have the ability to build up, cause clumping, and damage hair. This product is clearly not silicone free and contains silicone that can damage hair since it's not water soluble.

You must be new to this if you don't think parents are crazy. There are a lot of reasons parents do it, not the least of which is to give their son an advantage over other kids. But, besides that, it could be done for academic reasons or the family simply moved to a new town (which was the case with the Blast kids) and the parents had them repeat a grade. It's far more common than you think. Wait till next year when 40+ kids that your boy is playing with now repeat 5th grade because the parents fell that they're "not ready for middle school". It's becoming a joke, but a joke that is far too common. Especially if the LI teams want to stay competitive with the out of state teams and the Dukes Nationals,True Nationals, etc... that grab kids from virtually anywhere.

Local lacrosse is grade based so if your son is in 6th grade he can not play 2025 within the rules. That is just a FACT. This WSYL argument is just made up facts to support cheating if the original post about Express is true. If this is what any team is doing then it has to be called out by all of the others.

A hold back can absolutely participate in the WSYL. As a matter of fact, 8th graders play with the 7th grade teams every year. As long as their birthday is after 9/1. Word is they are going to change the date to 7/1 to get more interest from the Maryland clubs.

Arguing about holdbacks? Nothing better to do? Its clear and evident. Holdbacks are kids who were middle of pack at their own age group. When dropped down, they are at top of food chain. Make parents feel more proud that they can brag about little jonny. To me its insane unless its adevelopmental thing but that is usually spotted early on.

Any human being of the face of the earth can participate so long as he or she was born on or after the cut off date. They can be Doogie Howser and be in college; they can be a 7 time holdback and be in kindergarten; they can be home schooled by a religious cult. Its very simple, and its how most other youth sports organize themselves. No one cares what grade a kid is in.

WSYL should emulate the LLWS (which they openly try to do) by making a player eligible only once. For LLWS, only LL age 12s are allowed to participate. You can be the best player in the world, but if you are a LL age 11, than you can't play. Everyone has their one year to go - if their team makes it. So, the WSYL should settle on 9/1 or 7/1 or 1/1, and stick with it. Than for each year, eligibility will be for kids born on or after the cut off date, but before the cut off date one year hence. The clubs should then be permitted to bring a team to qualifiers and Denver (if they make it) consisting of kids who are bonafide members of the club, no matter what team within the club they are on. So a holdback heavy club can pull kids from say 2023 and 2024. Basically, make it an allstar team from within the club of all kids born within that years 12 month window. For the next year, it will the next successive 12 month window, and so on. All kids will be eligible to play once and only once - if they are good enough to make their club's team, and if such team qualifies.

You won't be getting too many of them most kids graduating in 2025 are born in 2007 so any holdback born prior to September 1st 2006 won't be able to participate.

So then they would not be in 6th grade then would they? They would still be in 5th if they are actually reclassed, not fantasy land, pretend reclassed. so if on September 1 of this year, they are in 5th grade then we have to suck it up. If a kid is in 6th grade then its just cheating and we can all go nuts at the first Tournament and see if the organizers have any cajones.

Same kid - same speed, intelligence, athleticism, experience, skill, maturity, etc. But he gets to play at one level in youth lacrosse vs another level simply because he is in Ms. Jones' 5th grade class instead of Ms. Smith's 6th grade class.

Do you mean he took 3 kids from the 2024 express teams and put them on the 2025 express Channy team for the 17-18 season? Were these kids playing up in the past or actually repeating a grade in order to play down?


Blast is doing the same thing. 2 midfielders from 2024 have reclassed and are playing with Blast. I guess the new coaches were instructed to win. Pathetic, but that's the new way of lacrosse.


Not true.

But the kids would have to repeat a grade at school to do it. What parents are doing that at this age? And what kid would want to do that?


You must be new to this if you don't think parents are crazy. There are a lot of reasons parents do it, not the least of which is to give their son an advantage over other kids. But, besides that, it could be done for academic reasons or the family simply moved to a new town (which was the case with the Blast kids) and the parents had them repeat a grade. It's far more common than you think. Wait till next year when 40+ kids that your boy is playing with now repeat 5th grade because the parents fell that they're "not ready for middle school". It's becoming a joke, but a joke that is far too common. Especially if the LI teams want to stay competitive with the out of state teams and the Dukes Nationals,True Nationals, etc... that grab kids from virtually anywhere.[/quote]

Two kids moving to Blast from another town??!?!! AWESOME!!! I hope they are moving from Texas!

So basically if you weren't a first line middie on Blast, you're getting bumped by two older kids? That's pretty unfair. But I guess it's the 91 way

Local lacrosse is grade based so if your son is in 6th grade he can not play 2025 within the rules. That is just a FACT. This WSYL argument is just made up facts to support cheating if the original post about Express is true. If this is what any team is doing then it has to be called out by all of the others.


That sounds absolutely insane!!!Go nuts? Let's put things in perspective- These boys are playing with other boys of the SAME AGE! That would make you go nuts??? And lets be honest most of the 2025 A team players are hold backs anyway.(not all but most). Who cares what grade they are in? As far as rules are concerned ,the only rule I see in USA Lacrosse states Sept.1st as a cutoff date

Making an principled argument about age- versus grade -based is separate from whether a club will change to age-based or not. When the whole sport goes age-based, the holdback (for athletic reasons) goes away on its own . . . I suspect that that transition will not happen soon enough for a current 5th/6th grader, but for those a coiple years younger it will, and the clubs will effect those changes to their programs accordingly. It won't be cut and dry.

holdback means he would be playing on the 4th grade team instead he is same age as your son and plays on the 6th grade team. Your sideline coaching is holding back your own kid. Didn't Legacy win the WSYL the year before with an age based team?

So the kid will be a grade ahead and several mints older. That's funny if you think that works. It's called playing down.

January 1 to January 1 is fine with me. But as long as everyone is doing it on the same basis. My sons sign up paperwork says 2025. It doesn't work when you and Channy double secret adopt age based with your on convenient date so you can play kids down.

Gutless cheating.

Grade ahead yes. But the same age! In some case months older , most cases, the better kids (hold backs) the same age- born in 2006 after sept 1st..

Is this even necessary, insulting a college kid??? Really??
Clearly there are three other coaches listed. He is not the head coach. And the head coach is his dad. So since he is a young experienced talented college lacrosse player, he can only add to the training atmosphere for the boys whenever he is available. How is it not worthwhile to incorporate him into the program if he is willing and interested in helping to train the boys when he can alongside his dad.
That deserves criticism???
As adults we should all know when to refrain from these inconsiderate comments. Is that too much to ask? We can debate issues and provide information within the forum in a respectful way without insults.

He won't. His dad is coaching Blast as well as an older 91 team too. If Mac shows up it will be for a guest appearance. I wouldn't want a 91 year old coaching anyway. They are terrible with kids and have a much different set of priorities. It's better to have the dad.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2025 - 5th Grade Fall 2017/Summer 2018 - 08/16/17 10:56 AM
Okeefe was one of the top scorers in the country as a freshman. Most college kids have summers off, correct? Any amount of time that he contributes will be a great asset. The kids will LOVE AND BENEFIT from their time with him. Why must negativism be the rule of thumb for this forum? Oh, yeah, I heard it before and I guess it must be true "haters gotta hate". Please just stop....

Kids relate to and emulate the younger coaches. For training, it is excellent. Mac will show them cool tricks and plays and they'll want to copy him. Many of us old guys would look like fools trying to do the same. Would I want him calling the shots in games? No. I'm sure he won't be. Plenty of other old guys on the sidelines to call the shots.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2025 - 5th Grade Fall 2017/Summer 2018 - 08/16/17 01:59 PM
All this is a distraction. Gillis is the coach and probably better off. Still some Hurricanes kids somewhere at a tournament that Okeefe forgot to call and tell them the coaches decided to pull out at the last minute.

And what are you going to do when the playing down doesn't make Johnnie a star? Then my 5th grader will simply tell his classmates that he is better than your 6th grade son even after cheating and those the kids will happily tell the others!

These organizations should all offer a developmental team and play in a local league with the others instead of traveling all over to get blown out. 9D1 is the worst as they put there teams in same tournaments / their own knowing Ice never had a shot and shouldn't of been there.

This re-class and hold-back conversation infuriates parents.The parents that held back there kids early on and the ones that are contemplating on doing it now.

You are the crazy one. You think this is a singular case? Buddy, wake up and smell reality. More and more kids are being held back every year. Your little superstar will be mediocre very soon.


They are talking about a sixth grade kid, that is not held back playing down on a 5th grade team. if the parents choose to hold a kid back and face the music for that, well those are the rules. Those rules might stink, but that is the system. Right now people are saying Express is telling some parents to just have the boys play 2025 (now 5th grade) even though they will be going to school in 6th grade (2024).

That is just cheating.

The rules are what they are. Making up your own rules just doesn't fly. PS, I am infuriated by holdbacks, so a cheating, phony holdback is even more infuriating.

If this bothers you at 5th grade, you should see what older boys are doing: reclassing themselves NOW based upon a prospective PG year so that they are playing with the boys that will be in the same freshman class class after they do their PG year! And some of these boys are already holdbacks!

I understand and agree and share 100% in with your frustration. But what exactly is the rule??Is the Sept.1st date that us lax and world series of lax use? or is it the graduating class?
Because something has to change.Lax is the fastest growing sport in America. Someone needs to step in and interpret/enforce some rules.

I'll preface what I say with I have no problem with any player playing on grade, regardless of age. It's the rule and the clubs we all pay won't change it. However, whatappears to be new, and I think it's the WSYL influence, is coaches literally merging the Sept 1st cutoff of the WSYL and grade. And I because nothing is changing it doesn't upset me. But I respect and understand those of you infuriated by all of this.

My son tried out for his team at 2025. So did every other kid on Long Island. Everything else is just made up rules at this point. I'll accept a September 1 date if they get rid of anyone older than that as well. You can't just mix and match it because your kid got cut from Channy A.

If you think holdbacks/ reclassifications are going away you are 100% wrong. College coaches are pushing more and more kids towards taking 1 if not 2 post grad years before enrolling into their college. As the sport grows you will see more of this because it is all driven by 💰💰. These coaches are under much more pressure to win immediately therefore they will do anything they can to give themselves an advantage. Since it's being pushed @ the collegiate level it will only trickle down even further & become more common.
Keep in mind hold backs/ reclassification happens very frequently in football & basketball @ the collegiate level.

Channy does not cut kids. He collects them. His roster is 30 kids. That does not include the other kids he will add when the season starts. To be fair he is up front about whether or not your kid will play. You just have to ask.

You may be correct. We shall see. But what you are describing is not incompatible with age based youth play. If many players are going to do PG years at the encouragement of D1 coaches (so that they are older when competing at the college level), so be it. It does not mean that kids can't be organized by age when they play lacrosse when they are youths.

Hockey uses PG years also. It is very common for a D1 hockey player to be on schedule to graduate when they are 23 or 24. But yet hockey organizes youth play by birth year, and such is strictly enforced and verified. Their system works very easily. Their is no reason why it won't work in lacrosse.

----this is correct for lax, I see it happen with high school kids a lot. They get asked to PG but only some do. But the reasoning is because lacrosse players actually stay in college for 4 years, so there's a benefit having a 23/24 year old playing for you. This however is not true for football or Basketball like you stated. Kids are actually looking to get to college sooner, so that they can play and have a chance to make it into a professional career.

The reclass is an issue for pre-HS aged players, not HS. Football is age-based for all youth programs, so it has never trickled down there - it can't. PG has always been an option for foorball. Football is totally irrelevant analogy.

Football and basketball also have more scholarship $, so PG could be viewed as an investment versus scholarship $, PG a lacrosse player just adds to the overall education cost as we all know, there is minimal $ in lacrosse scholarships

I think it depends on their birthday. The US Lacrosse cutoff is 9/1. I have a child born early September that could, according to US Lacrosse, play the grade below. I personally wouldn't consider it because it's better to challenged in my opinion, but I wouldn't consider it cheating either because of the USL cutoff.

If the rules allow him to play then so be it - that's why lax needs to adopt the age based system like hockey and soccer. Hopefully US Lax will implement this, and those running tournaments will have to check all players.

And in my book a " holdback" is another word for cheater. But let those parents gloat their johnny is a star because even johnny knows he is a cheater !

I agree a 6th grader that falls in the birth guidelines is fine with me. That way it's clear. Aug 31st and it's a different case.

if you're in 6th grade regardless of your birthday and playing 2025 then you're cheating. If it's age based (wsyl) then its fine

It's 5th grade lacrosse. He's not competing to get into college right now. If he misses the cut off by 2 weeks WHO CARES? Get over it and worry about your own kid and things that are important in life. This is so ridiculous people keep caring on for an August birthday. Bet over it already!

In grade based lacrosse absolutely -
But there are a decent number of 2025s older than some 2024s.

It's an honor system.

Is your son in 6th grade? What part of the GRADE BASED SYSTEM can't you understand. It's cheating, purposely ignorant morons who would happily cheat and pretend that us lacrosse guidelines are applicable.

It's not two weeks Mr. Alternate Facts, the LI school year is December 1, and I care about my kid and don't want your kid more than a year older than mine, your kid who is in 6th grade cheating. You should be embarrassed and your son will be ashamed.

Over time, we'll all find out who you are and eventually we'll find out if your kid stinks or not, but we will all know without a doubt that you are a cheating bag of scum.

There is no "cutoff" in grade-based lacrosse - you're either in the grade or you're not.

I an fine with it, meaning if the rules stated it. Clearly playing grade is one thing, grade. This merged approach we are discussing is new. But I have no problem with it, if tourneys adopted it.

You're kind of making the point that it is one big game of who can cheat more. The rules are an honor system, which is why they can be broken. Most people have some sense of right and wrong which is why most have their kids play on grade, which although not formally written is fairly intuitive and obvious - you're kid is either in a given grade or they're not; playing up is fine, playing down is cheating. Those parents having their boy play down have lower morals, and they know it's wrong, which is why they don't generally advertise it. Holdbacks are a whole other problem, and technically within the rules, but the practice is questionable, if not downright wrong, which is why EVERY OTHER MAJOR YOUTH SPORT has gone age-based.

A kid may move here from out of state, kids are held back for learning or social issues. I understand this. However what does this have to do with playing sports. How does a kid because he may have trouble reading entitle that kid to now play sports with younger kids. When kids are the same age, that's what makes sports fair. I agree with having an age cutoff date. Whatever that date would be, I wish it would be followed. US lacrosse and now with WSYL becoming more popular I think in the near future this grade based lacrosse may fade away.

This debate has raging for a long time and every club on LI has concluded or is the middle of tryouts. Yet nothing changes. Hence, there is no change coming. So let me attempt to be productive.

Whats the solution that everyone seems to want. Even the announcers on the WSYL advocated for change. Maybe a group that has no financial stake can help enact change. PAL Lacrosse should review and consider an age based system and adopt US lacrosse guidelines. Shouldn't PAL be an advocate of safety and fairness? I think that is a productive way to get something going towards an age based system. "US Lacrosse establishes eligibility guidelines to promote a safe and sportsmanlike environment. US Lacrosse believes that leagues, associations, and other organizers of youth lacrosse should provide playing opportunities that, as much as possible, aim to establish a "level playing field" among players of similar age."(https://www.uslacrosse.org/rules/age-eligibility-guidelines) In my humble opinion, if PAL was the willing to frustrate the "status quo" they would open some eyes and this could pave the way to ending the unending debate.

Shore 2 Shore offers started. My son accepted a spot. Talent was better than I expected at tryouts, but below other top teams. Probably a good place to look for those who don't make other top teams or are on bottom of those rosters. Coaches were great at tryouts.

Who would move over to a club their first year? Not very smart.
Pay thousands of dollars and have no clue what you are getting?

2025 Coach will be fine when he is there, unfortunately he will miss a lot if his past record holds. Then when he is there, you will have to put up with the friends and family first plan.

Which WI Daddy coach are we talking about? And which team on legacy is he going to? Geese? And is he infiltrating as a coach?

They had a few really good players. Coach seemed like a nice guy. I couldn't say how good he is or isn't. I think they're more targeting underserved areas that don't have well-run clubs for kids to play in. We didn't accept the invite because I'm concerned it will conflict with our main club team. They use a depth chart system where attendance is a key factor (makes sense) but if you can't make the practices because of your main club, I assume your kid won't be playing so why do it.

If they go where the area is underserved, then they can lock in kids that have less local club options to choose from. That's what it has to do with "elite" lacrosse.

And by the way, the invited kids from the tryout at Hofstra on that Saturday blew the doors off Express the next day at Cedar Creek.

Problem with Dukes is that every single event that they have is off the Island. It's hard to justify an overnight trip to go to a practice. Even if that practice is at Hopkins, Rutgers or UVA.

So you start by saying they don't have enough kids and are scrambling. Now you say they have too many kids and are only after $$. Can you make up your mind?
And what team are you playing for?

A good roster is around 23 kids. Two solid lines plus an extra midi line. But don't go by rosters after tryouts. Depending on the team they may have more on roster with the assumption not all are accepting.
Plus some teams pick up additional kids as the season progresses. Don't be afraid to ask questions. Good coaches will tell you up front or if you ask them.

Just remember that in crunch time and championship games, only 15/16 or maybe 17 will be playing. That's if your trying to win. If it's a we all get a medal for trying team, maybe kid 21/22 plays.

23 is still way to much. 20 is ideal. Geese have 25 after promising 20-22. Another bait and switch by Legacy. And you guys thought the infighting was bad last year.

If you go with 3 groups of mids, 5 D and 5 A, 2 Gs (and 1 LPM if you can't use one of your D for that), you are at either 21 or 22 - no more! Any travel team carrying more than that is just setting up kids for no time on the field and no real benefit to the team either, other than those extra kids subsidizing the other players and the director's pockets! Fact!

I think it depends on their birthday. The US Lacrosse cutoff is 9/1. I have a child born early September that could, according to US Lacrosse, play the grade below. I personally wouldn't consider it because it's better to challenged in my opinion, but I wouldn't consider it cheating either because of the USL cutoff.


Is your son in 6th grade? What part of the GRADE BASED SYSTEM can't you understand. It's cheating, purposely ignorant morons who would happily cheat and pretend that us lacrosse guidelines are applicable.

Cheating piece of $h!t


The only way you can be that Mad to make that quote, is that you held back your kid and do not want another boy the same age to steal his thunder. pathetic!!

Great point. PAL could take the lead on this issue. If boys play age based on PAL it will quickly become obvious who is playing down and will bring to surface the issue, which is currently these dark "secrets" who is playing down. Parents may also be less inclined to hold back if their son is no longer able to play with the boys in their grade.

So said 22 then maybe 23-24 and then post 25. Who taught math over there?

Plus some teams pick up additional kids as the season progresses. Don't be afraid to ask questions. Good coaches will tell you up front or if you ask them.

Geese will not commit to coach list because the daddy control freaks pushed there number 1 coach out, they should be ashamed as an organization what they are allowing to happen. Geese has turned into dad's running the show and there friend the money man standing behind them for support, meanwhile the coach who gave his all and made the geese who they are was basically pushed out!

They have a really good team at this age group. Not a Blast or a Geese level but competitive, great coaches (neither of which has a child on the team) and a great group of boys and families. They had a lot of success last summer. No controversy, no infighting.

My son's team played them this summer. They are a B+ team more or less (note that I hate these distinctions - just using them because they seem to be the currency of this board). They move the ball extremely well - lots of passing, very little ball hogging. At a tournament like Lax Fest, which I have been to many years running, they would be in the mix for championship game in the B division, but would have a losing record for sure in A, and would get smoked in some of those games.

Sounds like a big fat roster and a coaching change for a team of mediocre players that at one time had good coaching to keep them afloat. Another nail in the coffin while the train keeps on getting better and better watching you fools eat your own young.

I was told they reached out to some kids that were not at tryouts and were waiting on them. Seems strange, but I guess there's a lot of pressure on them to win. I spoke to 4 other parents after the second tryout and it turns out we were all told our boys will be starting midfielders. I'm no genius, but I'm pretty certain that's not possible. Makes me wonder who else they told.

Does anyone know anything about the 9D1 second team? I heard bad things about last year's team but I also heard they made some changes. My oldest is on 9D1 but my youngest has to decide between the second team or Empire Green. This will be his first travel team. Any informative thoughts will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

9D1 second team last year was called Ice, and was incredibly uncompetitive. But in 2016 they were an excellent B team. The roster from 2016 to 2017 must have changed significantly. So, if its last years Ice, stay away. But 2016 shows that they are capable of having a good second team. If the roster can go that far south in one year, presumably it can come back strong one year later. The only real way to know if to have watched tryouts to see if there is talent - but was probably hard to do given that it was probably also the tryout for Blast.

It was an absolute debacle. There’s no other way to describe it. No way it gets that much better in a season. The organization should be ashamed of themselves for handling it the way they did.

That would be a mistake without doing some homework first. Empire was not good last year. Ice was terrible too, but they have shown if they get the right guys in place to coach, then there is hope. One of the better kids now on Blast played for Ice and they noticed. My advice, call, ask who the Coaches are, make sure you get a straight answer and then decide. The best thing about 91 for a first time kid is that they will do their winter training program which is VERY GOOD. When you are there you and your son can see what the difference is and really gauge if he can step it up. At least after the year you will have a basis to compare.

But if they don't tell you who is coaching at either organization and if they don't impress you go the other way.

Sounds like someone just got the bad news from the coach. Reality finally hit you in the face, it stings doesn’t it. Well at least your child will have more time for training..


Stop the madness. 48 hours ago the Geese were falling apart and better players were scattering. Now everyone hugging it out. Keep believing the lies. Golden geese= The Fragile Eggs

My son was told he would be a starting attackman if he came. I guess they told that to everyone. That is total crap and that's exactly why we are staying with Express. Anyone that promises you that your kid is going to start before even seeing the full team practice is lying to your face. The coaches on Blast are salesman whose jobs are to fill the 91 coffers.

When the lies and deceit begin at tryouts, you had better buckle in and get ready for another bumpy ride Blastards.

They all called around, don't kid yourself, it's part of the business of winning.

And you know Express brought in kids before tryouts and guaranteed spots to players from both Blast and Geese. And beyond that, do you really believe Channey didn't make any calls? I know he called me and said directly that I didn't need to pay for my son to tryout and then he had the balls to ask if I could bring other kids who would pay.

And I'm sure "they" told your son, but not you that he would start, yeah I'm sure that's what happened the coaches just walked right up and told your little Rob Pannel that when they begged him to come. By the way, I saw your kid, he certainly isn't good enough to start, or from what I can tell even play.

I know how it works, [lacrosse] Blaster. The coaches approached me, ME, after the second tryout and told me they want my son on the team and that he would be a starter. You don't know me or my kid. But it sounds like you're a little pissed that he was offered a starting attack spot. I'm guessing your kid plays attack, or at least he did last year. Don't worry, he'll probably still play a few minutes a game next season.

Too freaking funny, now we all know how delusional you are. That Never Happened and you know it. During tryouts, my son pointed out your kid to tell me how soft he is. Maybe back in Channey world your son will get to catch a pass from the ball hog middies if he hasn't been replaced with the new OLDER kids.

What a waste of 4K!

As an outsider, it's fun watching 91 & Express parents go at it..
One of the classiest things I've ever seen was when 91 got beat in overtime in at NLF and Express kids starting cheering. A 91 mom started yelling at the Express kids. They are 9 and 10-year-olds.. You both have great teams and programs, shut up and enjoy what you have.

It wasn't the best kids doing that, it was the scrubs. The best seek out the challenge, the hangers on and their parents, who say "we" when describing the team, were relieved to avoid one last run for the year.

Blast could have avoided the embarrassment by winning, but it's history! New season, new teams.

Did you just call 10-year-olds "scrubs"? I hope you are not Express parent. It would be funny if your 5'5" and your wife is 5'2" and these "scrubs" are 6" taller than your kid in high school.

Why? Scrubs are a good way to describe anyone, kid or otherwise, who contributes nothing to a team other than fodder to practice on. The good kids have class. They don't need to brag. The scrubs don't.

Scrub dad has his panties in a bunch. Junior doesn't play much? Give Channy some more money that might change if you can afford it, scrub. Or you could spend that time teaching scrub junior some manners. Then you can leave Scrubville and live happily ever after like a fairy.

Teams in my opinion should have a max size of:

2 Goalies
6 poles
9 middies is the max. Rotating 3 lines is tough, but a good coach will make it work. Let the kids and parents know that bench will shorten in the last 5 minutes in tight games. The only time this gets sticky is when there is a game with a lot of flags. Then the lines get short shifted. But no more than 9 should be on the team. Also with 9 mids you can develop a D mid or LSM at this age to make it work.
6 attack

Any more than that and then playing time becomes an issue and you must decide is the practice time worth being on the team. To each his own.

Its not an A team if they have more than 22 kids on it.......A team with half a B team. If your kid doesn't start or first in off bench you are part of the B team just supplementing the tuition of the top players.

You are a little short...The roster has 22 kids


You are still a little short. 30 kids to start the season. Most, if not all the kids are returning from last year and he added a few.


So insightful. Most top teams return their players and add a few as well.


awe, are you mad b/c little johnny didnt make the A team or just bitter in life. Probably both.


More insightful amd helpful commentary

Thanks in advance.


My son was told he would be a starting attackman if he came. I guess they told that to everyone. That is total crap and that's exactly why we are staying with Express. Anyone that promises you that your kid is going to start before even seeing the full team practice is lying to your face. The coaches on Blast are salesman whose jobs are to fill the 91 coffers.

When the lies and deceit begin at tryouts, you had better buckle in and get ready for another bumpy ride Blastards.


They all called around, don't kid yourself, it's part of the business of winning.

And you know Express brought in kids before tryouts and guaranteed spots to players from both Blast and Geese. And beyond that, do you really believe Channey didn't make any calls? I know he called me and said directly that I didn't need to pay for my son to tryout and then he had the balls to ask if I could bring other kids who would pay.

And I'm sure "they" told your son, but not you that he would start, yeah I'm sure that's what happened the coaches just walked right up and told your little Rob Pannel that when they begged him to come. By the way, I saw your kid, he certainly isn't good enough to start, or from what I can tell even play.


I know how it works, [lacrosse] Blaster. The coaches approached me, ME, after the second tryout and told me they want my son on the team and that he would be a starter. You don't know me or my kid. But it sounds like you're a little pissed that he was offered a starting attack spot. I'm guessing your kid plays attack, or at least he did last year. Don't worry, he'll probably still play a few minutes a game next season.


Too freaking funny, now we all know how delusional you are. That Never Happened and you know it. During tryouts, my son pointed out your kid to tell me how soft he is. Maybe back in Channey world your son will get to catch a pass from the ball hog middies if he hasn't been replaced with the new OLDER kids.

What a waste of 4K!


You mean Same AGE kids!

They are the same age as the kids they are playing against which is why they can reclassify so what is the big deal?

Reclassification of grade is not age - for 99.9% of reclassed, that means they are older than the kids they have reclassed to. Class = grade, not age.

Are they in sixth grade 2024 or not? Simple question. Asked differently, is the kid graduating High School in 2024 or 2025?
They are not the same age, THEY ARE OLDER!
Reclassify is a made up term for cheating if the boy hasn't been held back a grade in school.

Now I generally don't like hold backs, but under the system, the kid is playing by the rules as they stand.
But this phony holdback system that folks are trying out this year is really the biggest scum move of all.

The best part is this usually doesn't become a debate until much later grades on BOTC. We will be discussing the same thing until this age graduates. Egaaaaad.... I can tell you the ones that hate it, call it cheating, the ones that are neutral, say its within the rule, and the one's that encourage it, are doing what's best for their kid. And everyone is entitled to their opinion and are free to do they see fit. And guess what...the system ain't changing.

Next topic. What clubs are playing on Columbus Day? Obviously the Leggy teams will be there. Express has been a big participant in the past as well.

It's changing at the pre-HS ages - ignore at your own peril.

My insight is only from reading BOTC. But inconsistant coaching year to year is tough. I wouldn't say disaster because I don't know. But let's give them (young athletes) a chance to succeed before hitting the replay button on old posts.

Agreed. I've seen them play, they look like a pretty talented group of boys. I do hoping the coaching stabilizes for them.

Your insight from what you have read on Back of the Cage? You realize half of everything you read on here is just some parent's BS, right? This is a team that won 90% of their games and several losses were in overtime situations? Calling them a disaster when you know NOTHING about them is pretty harsh if not just plain ignorant. Do some research and remember these are 10 year old kids you are criticizing. Let's see what this year brings.......

These are very talented boys but I'm afraid you aren't going to get the coaching commitment you are expecting. As much as you all complained last year you got a lot of practice/training. You won't get that same commitment this year. He's not a big practice guy. 1 practice a week, 1 hour at the most.

It's very tough to create continuity and substantiate growth when different coachs/ideologies are brought in year after year. What is likely the case is that the assistant coach from last year will act as the head coach this year. The two new coaches that they brought on coach an older team of largely uncommitted juniors so their focus will likely be to get them their looks first. Also, one of them is bringing his kid on the team, which means that they are gaining another daddy coach.

Obviously, this is just speculation and things could go totally fine. I with all of our boys good luck this season.

Oh really, why don't you ask him how his coaching role is working out. He will see less time on the sideline as your kid does. Mama Goose has a better chance of hatching some more super star golden eggs then he has at coaching.. Blast is a sinking ship and the season has just started. Call Mixed Nuts for help, you can use it.

I need a translation for this post it's so incoherent.

I guess they are implying that the WI daddy coach is joining the geese sidelines.

What about the tournament Legacy is putting together for 2025 and 2024 next summer? Selling it as a best in age tourney? 10+ "invited" teams to play at the Marina. I can't wait to see that invitation list.

I heard Cali, Maryland, NJ, Texas are all on the so called list.

Does anyone have any other details as most of what I've been told is third hand info?

There are just enough tourney's around so "A" teams can dodge and weave and miraculously never really play each other.

Let's just make one thing clear, the 'Nuts have never lost and have beaten the Dark Storm (SYAG losers) and the Express A team (Chammy/St. A's losers), plus any other team that is dumb enough to get in the way. Going forward, I would let 2nd place have the shirts, my little monster is only in it for the glory.

The ones the big guys didn't play in so you were able to borrow their players and play coach for the day. The ones you would complain about if your A team ended up in because Little Rabil couldn't score enough goals in a blowout. The ones a real A team would play up in the 2024 A bracket and have the same results but you would still complain because little Rabil was checked to hard.

It's no longer sad, because I can hear you giggling. Your opportunities to play are Columbus Day, Blatant and Octoberfest, win one of these this fall and then it's meaningful.

"A" teams never want to beat the best! That's just a T-shirt you wear to make yourself feel important. It's all about the trophies. You know you avoid certain tournaments until you know what teams are signed up.

Legacy is supposedly putting together a tourney for the age group that the best team will leave as Champion. Word is, most clubs won't commit. It's been this way since the beginning of time...and most will make up some age issue as to why their team lost.

It's no longer sad, because I can hear you giggling. Your opportunities to play are Columbus Day, Blatant and Octoberfest, win one of these this fall and then it's meaningful.

We'll play when and where we want you loser! If you want to be the best, you have to beat the best. Mixed Nuts are the team to beat. Come get your can of Whup [lacrosse]!


You guys should be the new coaches of blast. I know u guys think about it while sitting at blast practice. You guys would do a better job then the clowns they have now. Tell the mule to move over here comes the Nutzz. It would be the pat Med Sayville combo. Get in there G dogg

Could someone translate this because it really makes no sense. It appears YOU should not be calling anyone an idiot. Just because you disagree with a statement, you should not go into "attack mode". Stop being a bully and see if you can speak in an intelligent way to support your opinion because perhaps more people would take you seriously.

That might be true if you follow the totally asinine idea that A is comprised of like 3 - 5 team, but that doesn't make that whole concept any less dumb!

Not 3-5 at all just 3 and there is a lot of separation. Other than the Ducks and Igloo no Long Island team comes close. The next pack is led by one or more of the B teams.They parents may think they are on par until they see it for themselves and and have an oh crap moment. Seen it every tournament where somebody came over to size up one of those teams and were taken back. Then they found out the score was 10-0 and the kids were all playing with their off hands. Not about one kid or talent it is about team game and lax iq. These teams are far ahead as they have a strong core

At ANY AGE GROUP, the idea that any tier/classification/level/whatever you want to call it would be wholly comprised of single digit teams is outright dumb. The top 3 (or top 5 -
depends on age group) may be that good and there may be separation between they and the next closest teams, but that still doesn't mean then next best teams are not on a higher level than the teams below them. The foolish take on this is that somehow the teams that are in the 4 - 20 range being labeled A somehow diminishes the top teams - in reality, it magnifies their prestige. They are such that they are that much better than the rest of A; these top teams are AA or elite or whatever name you want to come up with. But, then there are regular A teams, B teams, and C teams - all three tiers on LI will have a fair amount of teams in each tier. This isn't Georgia where there truly might only be 1 or 2 or 3 A teams - it's Long Island, a top 2 locale for the sport. There is no other organized youth sport dumb enough to approach the idea of classification the way the people associated with LI's top teams go about it, and that isn't a good thing, and speaks volumes as to why it's so f'in dumb.

The coach was head coach of 91 Blast last year. He was a decent coach and good with the kids. He was not a dedicated coach for whatever the reason. Whether he is now at S2S time will tell. My kid likes him for what that's worth and learned from him but we didn't go running to S2S when he left. In summary, not a bad place if you've got nowhere else to go this year but not proven to be a great place either. Hope that helps.

Coach goes 100% daddy ball. During the week he tells you to get there 45 minutes early for the Tournament and shows up 10 minutes before game time so the dads have to start the warm ups. Cancels practice after you are on your way. Only has them going once a week even when the boys seem to need an extra day.

Other than that, he is a knowledgeable Lax coach and a good guy!

If you've got any significant number of boys on your teams playing fall sports, do you really think they are going to do more than 1 practice per week in the fall?? And considering the price point for S2S and other similar clubs, do you really think that is what you are paying for? I think many people have unrealistic expectations for fall lax.

Not talking about the fall, but the best go twice a week, even with football. Unfortunately his performance last year spring/summer was on average less than 1x per week including the weeks heading into Laxfe$t. Parents had to push him to schedule the extra day. The expectations at SOS might be less now, but he stranded the 91 kids last year. Maybe his priorities are straight and I am a nut, but the kids deserved better from him. The worst of it was that he showed that he could get a lot out of his 2018 team where he coached for several years. What is the movie line from DiNiro in the Bronx Tale? "There's nothing worse than wasted talent"

The best may go 2x per wk in the fall, but that's a sure way to bring about burnout and/or premature repetitive motion injuries with boys playing fall sports. I have no issues with kicking it up in the spring and into summer, but if they're in other sports, it's counterproductive in the off season.
It's very quiet, but at least we the mixed nuts chatter is quiet.

I think the top teams will remain. Express & Geese. They separated themselves from the pack over the summer. 9! and then Ducks & TB are the best of the rest.
How do you figure that the Geese are a better team than 9d1? Just looking for fact-based comments here.

I heard Team 24 made some improvements at this age.
Its a simple eye test. Last year both the Geese and Express were the better teams as the season came to a close. Obviously that can change, but that is the facts

You can't know for sure. There are different players on and off all 3 of these teams. Anything can happen. A year ago you said 91 was on top. Now you are saying Express and Geese.
What's good is nothing is a giveaway. Which makes the season challenging for the kids.

All I am.saying is at the end of the season is Express and Geese were the top teams. That's not to say 91 isn't good, they are.

I think the top teams will remain. Express & Geese. They separated themselves from the pack over the summer. 9! and then Ducks & TB are the best of the rest.


Not so fast! Mixed nuts are ahead of all the teams you mention. They must be the first AAA team!!!!!!!!!

Eye test? The facts?

You need glasses!

One goal games back and forth, Bravehearts, there were 3 top teams last season and those 3 will battle it out this year as well.

9d1 didn't have skill. They just play dirty. That dies down as they get older and real skill is needed. Express will win this year but I wouldn't want my son on the team. Channy will have a huge bench and only play the top players and holdbacks he had reclassify and burn them out. He will purely use them to get the rankings of his business up.
Be happy if your son isn't playing on Express for him.

91 is telling us not to expect to play in tournaments this fall because they want to make sure they fix the boys’ fundamentals, which makes sense. But I’m pretty sure that my tuition includes 2 fall tournaments so I’m a little confused. Can anyone from AA clear that up for me?

So I guess you’re saying that Geese are the only good team now? Express is the team to beat, at least as of the end of last season. I would agree that Geese were very good. They are definitely a close second. Let’s see how Igloo, Ducks and Blast have improved this fall. Hopefully we can have 5 legit teams at this age group this season and they all don’t avoid each other.

Ducks and Igloo are nowhere close to competing with the top 3. You are just fooling yourself if you believe that. Ducks maybe the best B team, no where close to a real A team. And igloo is stick in the middle of A and B.

Sounds like 9d1 knows they don't have the talent to compete in any fall tournaments, and as for your 2 included fall tournaments, you just got your first taste of 9d1s games on how they just take peoples money.. Good luck this season.

It sounds like you actually have a kid on the team. Are you seriously asking this question here instead of actually asking the coaches or another parent? If you don't like what you hear, ask a follow up question, that is how conversations work. And while you are counting the tournaments, count the practices and the number of coaches and the rest. And if you really, really still want to ask someone else, there are plenty of big mouths on the sidelines at practice to ask what they think, myself included. We're all easy to find.

You clearly do not have a kid on the 9D1 AA team. That has never been said. So stop trying to put out lies on the board.
That's why the board managers feel like they have to regulate these boards. Because of pure lies by people pretending they are something they are not.

If you are not happy at 9D1 now, you will never be happy. Please don't come on here and start s**t. If you have ever asked yourself if you're a crazy lax parent, I can confidently tell you, YES. Just go somewhere else and cast your shadow there.

All negativity aside, it looks like Columbus Day is going to be a great start to the year. Geese, Express and Ducks all facing off right out of the gate! Great to see the top teams playing each other in an awesome local tourney! Add to that 24, O’Reilly and Blue Devils and I’m expecting some great lacrosse. Forget about all of the garbage around which team is best. I guarantee that every team will have some competitive games. Good luck to all and pray for a north wind over there!

It would have been nice to have one other A & B team. Ducks, Express and Geese is A level. Blue Devils, Express B and 24 shouldn't being playing those teams. Not fun for the kids, the coaches or the parents. Nothing positive comes from losing by 10+ goals. Competing hard and losing is a good builder. Get on the phone tourney directors and add a few teams. Otherwise, why come back next year.

You seriously just said 9d1 had no skills and won because they played dirty?? I have sat through MANY of their games and never saw them resort to being dirty. You should be ashamed of making that kind of comment about 10 year olds....especially when it is not true.

Calling Ducks an A level team is laughable. Maybe in your mind Dad but not to the rest of the world. They have no chance against Express and Geese. Won't even be a game. Express and Geese will beat them by at least 8 goals or more.

I completely agree. These tournaments should have A and B levels. It's not fair to the B level teams to go to a tournament where they are just being beat up on and have no chance. Plus it actually hurts the kids self confidence. They should be playing teams at their level or slightly above. Not teams that will just run rings around them. I don't understand why the parents on the B level teams in these organisations don't complain about this. The B level kids would be much better off playing a different tournament.

If Legacy and Express can't get the turnout to at least have 4 teams in each A and B division, then they should not have that age group in the tourney. And instead have teams play at a different tournament that has a better turnout which has A and B levels. And I say Express as well because I expect the Octoberfest tournament is going to be the same issue based on how their Mayflower tournament turnout was last year.

Clearly if I say that calling A teams dumb is an unnecessary comment, then I don't support people making stupid insulting comments on this blog.
And I don't agree with the prior comment where the person insulted the Ducks and their kids. That's unnecessary and unwanted here.
But copying the bad behavior by responding with another insult of other teams is not okay either.
Everyone just needs to knock off the insults. It's truly infantile.

No team was insulted by posting, "Only 2 - 3 teams comprising "A' = dumb!" It was meant to insult the person(s) who consistently push the dumb idea that on LI there is any age group where the number of "A teams" are limited to single digits, let alone a handful (!), of teams.

The Ducks team is an A team. Are they as good as the Geese or Express, probably. not. But nobody claimed that. But they will beat any B team easily. I know that because we played them. So they should be playing those A teams and enter A brackets, which they do. Please stop with the insults.

The fact remains, why can't these tourney directors match up teams accordingly? Just make a few calls and try to get a few teams in. Blatant does a great job with this and that's why I like when we enter their tourneys. Their brackets are usually balanced. For Monday, I would rather play 2 games and make the 3rd game the winners bracket game. So what that means one team only gets two games. That's better than losing 15-0.

Not a real tournament just a way for the directors to knock one off the list of what you paid for so they can get to the extras . Same next week when express holds our get together

Geese vs express should be a great game . heard both teams picked up some better players .it would have been nice to see blast make an appearance

It is a real tournament, but I agree that it's not a spring/summer feel. Kids are playing football, including my son 3,4 days a week. Kids have missed half the September practices because of football,which is the prime fall sport. That's just how it is. I'm sure every team has this as well.

And one plays the Legacy B team and the other plays the Express B team. Does anybody agree that it's completely silly.

You guys are ridiculous. This is as good a showing as you will see. Blast will never play Geese (for obvious reasons) so you’ll never get all the A teams at a tourney together. Not a Ducks parent, but pretty sure they played Blast to a goal or two whenever they met last season, so that’s essentially a wash. 24 wants to play A teams so, win or lose, they’ll be happy. Plus, the B teams are playing each other and then seeing how they stack up against A teams. A lot can be taken from a loss. All in all, I think this is the best you can expect for a fall tourney.

So I partly agree. There is a lot you can take from a loss. But nothing you can take from a loss of 12 goals. It shows there is no equal treatment for A teams vs B teams.

This is the major problem with club lacrosse tournaments: there is no proper tiering system for teams, and thus no proper tournaments and/or divisions within to properly align teams. Almost every tourney is a [lacrosse] show to some degree, with teams getting blown out and/or blowing other teams out, sometimes both happening to a team within the same tourney. The grade-based aspect of lax, expecially outside of NY, compounds the problem. Hockey has this covered so much better, and lax should follow a lot of what they did (not all).

And tournament directors should work the phones and trade favors to make their tournaments competitive from top to bottom or just classify it as an A or B level tourney, that way you know. Do they really think putting B teams vs the top teams in the age is okay? The kids go in defeated, such poor judgement in my opinion. Good news is that there is choice, live and learn. That's why directors like the guys at Blatant who work to balance out brackets (in fall and spring) know the value of having a competitive tourney for all levels.

There are too many tournaments out there to spread out teams. When this happens, you're either going to have situations with unbalanced talent brackets or combined age brackets. Both lead to lopsided scores.
And it will only continue to get worse in the Spring & Summer as Club Directors decided to create their own tournaments to keep more money in house.

Seen the flyer for the True Blue tourney already? That'll be a sh*t show!!

Been to way too many tourneys w/ my sons already where in one game they win by almost double-digit goals and then lose in the next game by a similar amount!

Uh, that is the whole point of this thread. This is the one place in the world where you can debate 10 year old lacrosse. If such is not your cup of tea, than don't read the thread. There is a really big internet out there - I am sure you can find something that interests you.

It obvious which parents are gloating here. The parents of the only team that didn't show up for the biggest LI tournament of the year, the LI Lax Fest. It's easy for them to say they are the best, they won all those B championships last year and they weren't at the LI Lax Fest to see Express, 91 and Ducks all play each other more than once with every game having lead changes and every game being decided by 2 or less goals. What a great tournament it was and they missed it. Way to teach your kids to run from competition so they can hold up a $2 t-shirt. You guys win, all your boys are getting full scholarships and the rest of the 2025 boys will be losers the rest of their lives. What a bunch of big mouth parents living vicariously through their 10 year olds and hiding behind anonymous comments. Don't think for a second everyone doesn't know exactly who you are. Losers.

Please tell me you don't believe that the owners of True Blue are doing this solely to raise money for a charity. It say right on the flier a " portion" of the proceeds will go to charity.

I'm not knocking the kids or the organization but that's the truth, do the math on how much money a club team can save by enrolling their own teams in a tournament that they run and you will see why more and more organizations are following suit.

Your question is irrelevant. Let me explain. The Sweaty Nuts team plays only when Blast, Geese and Ducks are off. Since Geese and Blast will never play in the same tourney, that leaves very few available weekends. So, they will play in tournaments that are less desirable to the top team. This results in them playing in smaller tourneys against weaker teams, robbing those boys of opportunities for a tourney win. It’s a shame that those coaches need to put that team in those events. If you know the coaches, you know that they have an over-inflated opinion of their own boys. They are simply average. Daddy ball at its best. Just because their kids are not good enough to get minutes on their main teams, doesn’t mean they should pull the good players from those teams.

This is the major problem with club lacrosse tournaments: there is no proper tiering system for teams, and thus no proper tournaments and/or divisions within to properly align teams. Almost every tourney is a [lacrosse] show to some degree, with teams getting blown out and/or blowing other teams out, sometimes both happening to a team within the same tourney. The grade-based aspect of lax, expecially outside of NY, compounds the problem. Hockey has this covered so much better, and lax should follow a lot of what they did (not all).


And tournament directors should work the phones and trade favors to make their tournaments competitive from top to bottom or just classify it as an A or B level tourney, that way you know. Do they really think putting B teams vs the top teams in the age is okay? The kids go in defeated, such poor judgement in my opinion. Good news is that there is choice, live and learn. That's why directors like the guys at Blatant who work to balance out brackets (in fall and spring) know the value of having a competitive tourney for all levels.


Organizers of the Columbus invitational should invite 2025 Igloo and 2025 True Blue. Both of those leagues have teams in most of the other age brackets at that tournament.
They are already making plenty of money off those leagues. Therefore, it's reasonable to comp them the 2025 entrance fee. Plus since they have so many of there other teams there, they would probably go.
Then the organizers can make an A division by adding Igloo and a B division by adding True Blue.

Yeah, they need to balance the brackets. Ducks B and 24 B should be in as well. If they had some foresight they could make this the great kickoff event.

They are an all star team and should win. They aren't a travel club. It's like bragging about Sweetlax National and FCA National beating an Express or 91 team. It's not an apples to apples comparison. It's just really talented kids competed. I love how you take pleasure in a team losing.

Going forward. Mixed Nuts will never beat Express. All teams say they add, that team added 3 or 4 starters and they and the Geese will separate themselves from the rest of pack. Not saying that as a brag, just a fact.

Seems like most tournaments on long Island are B .only because there are so many and the competition level seems to be getting watered down with all the different so called travel clubs


So you are basing it on the talent that enters the tournament. That only seems true for this 2025 age bracket. It seems all the "A" talent is on 3 teams, 91, express, and the geese. Mostly all other age brackets have better completion and have a lot more "A" teams. You cant call all tournaments "B" level tournaments just because one age bracket enters only weak talent. The only really "B" Level tournament are the Harding tournaments, they do call themselves the "Battle of the B's tournaments", all others are just tournaments. Since 91 is entering in Halloween Havoc on October 14th, does that mean its an "A" tournament??

I know its ran by 9d1 but the fall lacrosse one they do was good, out in sachem. If your team is willing to drive a bit the one up @ Yale is good too. I am a bit biased against express, so just one persons opinion.

Blatant in October is a well run tournament. And the Fall Lax classic in November also is a good one. If you are just looking at Long Island.

You might have noticed the guys on the sideline spend 0 time coaching and just get the kids out and let them loose. So all of the teams with so called real coaches should be ashamed of themselves.

That’s how you justify it? Your son is going to grow up to be a loose loser like you. Get an life moron.


If you want a T- shirt that badly, tell me where you want it to be left and I'll drop it off. Junior has plenty of shirts that say Champs so he won't miss one.


Sadly junior was reduced to nothing when we spanked you in Pal. Funny how he’s nothing when he’s not surrounded by studs?

Tourney has not been updated yet, so I assume you are at the tournament. Must have been an exciting game. Seems like this will be a fun challenging season.

At this point score doesn't make a difference. These two teams are head and shoulders above the rest. The top 12-13 on each side is evenly matched. They play at such a high level it is amazing. They will trade wins and losses for many years to come.

Geese beat Express in Championship game

Those two teams were outstanding. The both moved the ball really well. Sometimes you forget that you are watching 10 year old's play with how talented they are. Those two teams will battle all year. It would be nice to get Blast in the mix with them.

I'm sure TAZ parents were saying same thing. Head and shoulders above the rest. A tournament, B tournament, C tournament. This team is afraid, that team is afraid. Blah, blah,blah. Point is teams catch up and nobody is afraid to play anybody in 10 year old lacrosse. You got to be out of your mind to think that. Teams are entered in tournaments based on what's convenient for the organization, it might be money, coaches schedules, some coaches have a few teams and can't be at 2 or 3 places at once, so multiple teams get entered in same tournament. There is not one player, parent or coach that I have ever seen, that said I'm afraid to play that team. It's not the UFC, its 10 year old kids playing lacrosse. That's all it is.

It is a bigger business than you think. These young teams are extremely crucial in the success of the organizations. Certain group at this age have done a good job to try to avoid the fray and keep the main competitor away while making their parents think they are ducking them. Easy to get away with when you play in your own events.

Both Express and Geese are great teams. But that doesn’t mean there are not others out there. Teams change from year to year especially at this level as kids mature and develop as players, plus as new kids come on the team, and as coaching staff changes are made.

If you look at 2024 games at the tournament this weekend, you realize anything is possible. In those games Taz lost a game to TrueBlue. No one would have thought that would have happened, but it did. And that’s what makes it exciting to watch.

Either way sounds like will be an interesting season.

Tournament schedules come out soon if not already. If a team has a scheduled tournament and then they cancel it, I guess that can be avoiding the fray as you say. I've never seen that and I have 3 kids, 2 in high school. Besides I don't classify a kids team losing a game as fray. Maybe because I have 2 older kids and been through this already. Losing is part of sports, it happens teams win and teams lose. If teams are getting crushed or doing the crushing they need to maybe move up or down a bracket. I understand that. In my opinion competitive games are what's good for business.

How about a little love for the Ducks after the disrespect on the board. They ended up pretty much even with the geese in respect to everything including their result against Express. If the geese didn’t play the team that only scored 3 goals in the entire tournament it might have been the Ducks in the championship, not the geese. Not to take anything away from the geese and their championship, they are a solid team, and not claiming the Ducks are the best team in 2025, but I think they proved they earn enough respect to be called an A team and will be very competitive against the other 3 everyone is claiming to be the best. Don’t be surprised if they take you down every now and again. There is no more dominance as the boys get older and those that matured early and were animals in grades k-3, may not cut it anymore. Going to be a fun year in 2025! How about we all enjoy it respectfully and let the boys have fun and not be insulted by immature adults on this board.

Really, you don't want to be immature? If that's the case you shouldn't have said anything at all. If you would have played both the Geese and Channey I don't think you would be on the board asking for respect for the Ducks. You probably would have taken a similar beating from the Geese and would have complained that they put you against both of those teams. Have your coach call the Geese coach and ask for a scrimmage.

How is that post in any way immature. You need some psyological help fella. You are the only immature moron on this board. True to geese form. How does anyone on this board have control of who scrimmages who? The only team that took a beating was the geese in the first Express game. Express lost the championship because they had the wind and rain in their face the entire game. The refs wouldn’t switch sides because it was legacy’s tournament and the geese coaches said no. Besides, no one wants to scrimmage the geese, they want to scrimmage teams that play real lacrosse. Not one on one ball and hope their wild shot goes in like the geese play. Their coaching is well below average. Express has the best ball movement in the 5th grade which you obviously know by the jealous comments. Teams want to scrimmage a real team like express, that’s why they get asked. Geese may have won that second game but Express is the better coached team by far. They play team ball. Geese have a bunch of athletes on the field with no purpose. Geese aren’t all that, but you know it or you wouldn’t be lobbying for respect. You can scream as loud as you like but they are just like everyone else. Huge holes and can beaten just like everyone else. That’s why they played in all those B tournaments last year and ran away from lax fest. Express is by far the leader this year again. There is one thing geese have that Express doesn’t. A bunch of loud mouth, loser parents that get in fist fights with each other and curse on the sidelines for 10 year old boys to watch and hear. Low class morons. You have to have your head examined to let your 10 year old son play on that team. But I get it, you want him on the team for the scholarship. Hate to tell you, he’s not getting it, he’s not that good. Keep dreaming. But don’t worry. You’ll have a tournament soon enough to yell and scream at the other parents and your coach while the rest of the lacrosse community laughs at you. Go geese! Poor kids.

You people are nuts haven't the Geese beaten express way more then express beat them? Channy played 14 kids in both games. Geese played everyone in first game and shortened the bench in championship. That was the difference. As far as. Enter ball
Movement goes express has 2 middys that dodge right every time that's there entire team. Geese won the championship against express again that makes them better until the next matchup.

It’s funny how you say only the geese enter B tournaments, look at Express, they are entered in a B Tournament this weekend. Playing all B Teams.

Fiore has outcoached Channy at least 7 times in last year. Amazing what you can get kids to do when they love and respect the coaching instead of fearing the results of not playing well. Tough to get that when you have to call kids by their jersey number because he is not around long enough to know the names. And while you were enjoying a crappy day in farmingdale last year playing the same teams we were in the mountains of Lehigh Pa playing and beating teams one to two years older.

That really makes zero sense and simply inaccurate. And I believe the Geese played in this tourney last year. And now that you're taking the weekend off (which is cool) it's not a good tourney.

Really ?? Is that the secret to the geese's success. Thank you for keeping us informed.. You seem to have a great interest in a 10yr old legacy team. I am guessing your little all-star must have been burnt by the geese in the past. What a shame, hopefully you will be able to move on with your life soon, I am sure junior already has. You sound like you have a lot of hate built up over 10yrs olds playing a game. I think you maybe in this for the wrong reason. I am sure everyone reading this feels for you.

I dont have a kid on Geese or Express. And I don’t believe in holdbacks.
But how can Express parent’s legitimately complain about a holdback on Geese, when Express also has holdbacks.
In that case it’s really only evening the playing field.
Don’t play a card and then complain when the other side plays the same card back.

And that comes from an Express parent! One of those on the the Express team who are making all the classless insults on the BOTC blog. Speaks for itself. You are the classless ones.
And I won’t insult all the Express parents by attaching that label to Express as a whole. The majority of parents just like any of the teams are good people. The classless parents are the ones who get on the blogs insulting other teams and kids. Or should I say cowardly bullies who truly are insecure.

Corrected 2025 ranking of classless parents:

1. Any parent from any team who degrades and insults other teams and any child. Basically anyone who acts like an ignorant cowardly bully.
Enough said!

Or maybe the tournament directors made the changes because they felt it was needed to help the tournament run smoothly. Maybe based on timing of games or field placement of certain games. You have no idea who or why the decision was made to make the change. So no one had a right to disparage another team and assume they req the change.

If he is reclassifying kids and playing them on the 2025 team when they are actually still attending school in the 6th grade, then directors and coaches of other teams need to obtain the proof and file with each tournament that Channys team attends. It can’t be that hard to get proof on a few kids if this is happening. He has many good athletes without doing this, so it’s a really stupid risk to take.

Why is anyone surprised at Channy for doing this. He does this with every team he coaches. He brings down older kids and makes the kids which are the right age watch from the bench. In fact he does the same thing on 2023 with a kid on the 2022 team.

Well it's not as easy as you say because of privacy issues. So obtaining that information illegally could be a problem for whoever is in possession of that information. Secondly he is part of the lax mafia, aka (The NLF) if you are not one of the members you need to pay favors to the boss in order to even be considered for a invite so smaller teams who could make that case are screwed. Look at Igloo they are on the outside looking in not because they don't have good teams but because the owner is not friends with one of the heads of the lax mafia.

He must be holding most of his team hostage then. As a parent, why in the world would you want your kid to sit on the bench? You are teaching kids they can win without contributing to the team. Is it really worth a t-shirt? Why not change clubs or even play for Oreilly?

I don't think he's holding the kids hostage, I believe it's more the parents. They are living through their kids and feel proud talking to friends about the teams their son is playing on with no mention what he actually does. I see no reason to have almost 30 kids on the roster like some of the older express teams when they only play the top 15 but the parents are happy to attend tryouts, sign up and travel up and down the east coast to be part of it. I guess they justify it all by saying Johnny get's better by practicing against the best kids in his age group. I don't buy it for one second but it's not just him. All the top programs have kids that do not play.

Not a single kid is in 6th grade. Not one. There may be kids that have been heldback for various reasons (or started kindergarten later), but that's how it works. LI teams are grade based. The tournaments they enter are grade based. The middle school, JV and Varsty teams they will play on will be grade based. If they play in college, they will be playing against kids that they graduated with or older. Long Island lacrosse is grade based, not age. Maryland is grade based (and they are much worse because they have kids go to pre-first, a grade between k and 1), Massachusettes, Pennsylvania, Jersey, Florida are grade based. Are you beginning to understand this now? You say that their may be kids turning 11 in a few months. And??? The cutoff for NY schools is December 1st. A kid born on that day is a true 5th grader. Many of these "holdbacks" were born September, October and November and the parents felt that they were not developmentally ready to begin school. Get over it. It will never change. And if you son is a decent athlete, the few months difference should not really matter.

A team or B team, there are a couple of studs on that team the top teams are going to want to poach for sure.


100% 2024 Kids on Express. I saw 2 with my own eyes who play Express A 2024. All truth no BS... Now believe what you want but that is fact..


They were playing up for the last two years. They are actually just now playing on age.

If he is reclassifying kids and playing them on the 2025 team when they are actually still attending school in the 6th grade, then directors and coaches of other teams need to obtain the proof and file with each tournament that Channys team attends. It can’t be that hard to get proof on a few kids if this is happening. He has many good athletes without doing this, so it’s a really stupid risk to take.

Flat out lie. There are definitely 6th graders on the team. These people are friends with parents on other team and know what grade they are in. Don’t be a liar. And it will change because the lacrosse World Series changed over to age not graduation year two years ago so everyone will be forced to follow. And when lacrosse changes to age like every other sport has, all you cheating parents will be out of luck and your kids will be below average players on their grade level. What a loser you are to lie and defend the practice. That’s why your kid will always be a loser like you.

'Defending' something purely using the argument that "it's the status quo" isn't even defending it - there is NO argument to support grade-based play, and it the reason why EVERY OTHER YOUTH SPORT has gone away from it.

There is only one boy. Now based off the last post if WSL is age based and the boy in 6th grade was born after the Sept 1st cutoff. making him 11 the correct age for World Series.Then why can he then not play in the 2025 division? I personally have no problem with that.He is playing vs kids that are his age.With all the holdbacks for whatever reason they were held back.

You are such a Meathead. First of all, WSYL isn’t attracting the top talent anymore, and it’s only been 2 years. Maryland clubs have written it off. No one is changing anything because of that. Also, how is having a 5th grader who turns 12 Ins November cheating? Teams are based on graduation year. Express, Legacy, Outlaws, Igloo, Ducks, etc.. are not U11 teams. They are 2025. So don’t get your panties once a bunch. Is junior going to have to play against these kids every year in School? Yes. Are you going to cry every game then? Better invest in some tissues, lady, because this is the reality.

First it was “not a single” now it’s “only one”. What a bunch of cheating liars. Cheating is cheating, one or more, and there are definitely more than one that wouldn’t fall within the cutoff date and are in different grades. We all know it. And parents of regular age kids that would play their kid on a cheating team like this for a T-shirt has issues. Great lesson for your kids.
And the only meathead is you. Get a life. Your kid still sucks and is going to turn into the short, bald, out of shape unathletic nome you are. Let us know how the B westchester tournament turns out. You should be real happy with your T-shirt. What a loser.

Blast is in hiding. Columbus Day, nope. Havoc, nope. Blatant, nope. Charlie Brown’s Great Pumpkin Invitational at Purchase, yep. What a joke. The coaches obviously saw what they had and decided tournaments were probably not such a good idea. They need to practice heavy before their figurehead coaches move on to their important teams.

Just a bunch of kids who’s fathers are trying to live vicarious through. Most aren’t the best on their respective teams. Maybe one or 2. If their kids were the top tier they wouldn’t waste their time in tournaments like this and risk getting injury or burning out in a meaningless tournaments. Let them have their glory it’s all they’ll ever have.

I think they are saying he has 2024, 6th graders, on his 2025 team. Not sure I get the point, holdbacks don't really make a major impact until 7th and 8th grade when they have an extra year of puberty. Of course, unless the kid has Eyetalian blood and hits puberty in 5th grade.

Charlie Brown Invitational is what Spallina was calling everyone last year who did not play in his tournament, how funny it is he dumps BLAST team and they are no where to be found . Good Luck to 91 when the coaches dump all of you in the Spring when they go back to there coaching jobs .

Blast is in hiding. Columbus Day, nope. Havoc, nope. Blatant, nope. Charlie Brown’s Great Pumpkin Invitational at Purchase, yep. What a joke. The coaches obviously saw what they had and decided tournaments were probably not such a good idea. They need to practice heavy before their figurehead coaches move on to their important teams.

Why do you care? Loser.


A year ago this team was playing up at the Havoc (in which Geese and Express where in on grade in that tourney ) and proclaiming they were the next Crush. That's why people care, people talk smack about their sons team and people can't wait to pounce. No agreeing or disagreeing, just stating the facts as I see them.

Thoughts on a decent weak A/strong B team other than Legacy or Express. The team my son is on cannot field an extra practice. And for regular practice it is always the same 10-12 kids that show up. As it gets colder it will only get worse. I think the coaches are getting frustrated too. Half the team is new to travel lacrosse.

i don't understand your post. 2024 kids are suppose to be in 6th grade. they graduate in june of 2024.


I think they are saying he has 2024, 6th graders, on his 2025 team. Not sure I get the point, holdbacks don't really make a major impact until 7th and 8th grade when they have an extra year of puberty. Of course, unless the kid has Eyetalian blood and hits puberty in 5th grade.


Please! Holdbacks have a HUGE impact especially at a young age. Why do you think there is such a debate regarding going age based in youth lax. 90% off the top kids on the top clubs are hold backs.

I understand your fustration but if they are new to travel they may be playing football, basketball, soccer or hockey. It's ok to let kids play other sports

Holly crap BOTC used correctly.
That's no fun, someone crap on the Ducks or tell this dad he should have started travel 9 years ago for his 10-year-old and his coach sucks.

One of the 2 mentioned. The coaches are really great. Nothing against them. I actually feel bad for the coaches.

Kids get pulled up and do not play (which the parents are ok with), they leave for another club or just decide not to do travel anymore. I understand teams will add a few players but half a team? The roster is just as big as their A team now. And b/c the coaches are fair, kids will get equal playing time regardless if they are at practice or not.

The 10-12 kids that are consistently at practice play other sports as well.

It’s the new Express format! Express has kids in every grade playing down. 2024 playing with 2025. 2023 playing with 2024 and so on for a lot of their A teams.

I'm guessing your son plays on this organizations B team? This is the exact reason why B teams for an organization are no good.
My advice, go find a club where there is only 1 team per age group..... There are plenty around for this age
Go ask around with Recon, Outlaws, True Blue, Bluefish, Millon, Icon

Yes he does. frustrating for him b/c the drills don’t work and they don’t win. Then I wonder why thehell am I paying all this money for an upgraded PAL team. It could work if the A team coach stops hoarding kids.

Express model: 35 kids per team on the roster with over 50% almost never seeing the field other than in blowouts! No thank you! - no player should have to deal with that until you get to college, especially when you're paying to play!

Appreciate all the feed back. Will look into those teams.
Might have to make a move before the next payment is due.

You hit the nail right on the head. Channy really only cares about the money, that’s why he stuffs his A team with kids. Don’t know why people drink the coolaide because there kids barely if at all actually play. Not sure why OReilly sticks around since he doesn’t have a chance of creating a decent team. But that’s his choice. However, its not right they charge parents outrageous sums for a B team which is the barely fieldable. If you can find a better team, jump ship sooner rather than later
.
Don’t rule out Legacy Blue Devils. I think they are going to be pretty good on the B level. And The Geese don’t overload their team so you don’t have the same problem as you face with Express. Plus Blue Devils have some good coaches.
Ducks Chaos or even Rage are good option.
Igloo
Mamaz Boyz is also a good B team
LI Knights was a strong B team last year, but didn’t do well in Halloween Havoc. So not sure about this year.
I would stay away from Empire. There 2025 team did not do well at all last year. I would wait a year to see if they improved.

Email the coaches or organizations and see if they have any spots your son can try out for. You would be surprised.
Good luck. I hope you and your son find a team he is happy with. This is a lot of money to pay, for your kid not to be happy doing it.

Can’t really blame Channy. He runs a business and if parents are willing to pay 3k for practices why stop them?

The Blue Devils are a solid B team. That team has been together for some time now. That’s the difference. It will take O’Reilly’s team fall, spring and half the summer to be on par with the stronger B teams. And before you know it’s tryouts again and come fall half the team is new again. It’s like a feeder program. He’s a great coach that isn’t able to keep a team together.

They are playing this weekend at Blatant. I want to see how they do. Will be a big deciding factor. Will also give me a chance to see how the other B teams play.

Here is an idea. You're the client, speak, not email or blog, with the organization and explain your concerns and see what the response is.

Can’t really blame Channy. He runs a business and if parents are willing to pay 3k for practices why stop them?

The Blue Devils are a solid B team. That team has been together for some time now. That’s the difference. It will take O’Reilly’s team fall, spring and half the summer to be on par with the stronger B teams. And before you know it’s tryouts again and come fall half the team is new again. It’s like a feeder program. He’s a great coach that isn’t able to keep a team together.

They are playing this weekend at Blatant. I want to see how they do. Will be a big deciding factor. Will also give me a chance to see how the other B teams play.
[/quote]

I don’t think you can just say that Channy is not completely wrong for what he is doing. People have a right to make money but they also have an obligation to deliver the product.

Express B level teams are just income for Channy. He is using the reputation of his A level teams as a means of selling all his teams. But then he is overloading his A team to make even more money for himself, so the B team has the bottom ranked kids from the tryouts. Therefore, OReilly has no chance of fielding a decent team. But honestly I can’t respect OReilly. He is a good coach. But he is allowing Channy to do this and stays with the organization. So he must get paid well and that’s all he must care about. Or he would move to one of the other lacrosse organizations.

Meanwhile the bottom half of kids on Channys A team are decent kids but never really get an opportunity to develop in actual games. Channy is taking advantage of those parents “hope” that there kid may earn more playing time. And there isn’t a chance. Channy is an “acquirer” of talent. He wants those kids to get out there and know what to do. He is not interested in developing the player. And these kids are losing their opportunity to develop as a competitive player and will fall way behind other kids who are getting a lot more playing time on other teams.

And for kids that are the top 14 out of 30 on his A team, they are not getting the best training for their money either.. Because those coaches at practice are still spread out over 30 kids. Where they would get much better training if they had the typical 22-24 kids on a team. But in the end it won’t matter to Channy, because he can always acquire better kids the following year. The kids on top this year on his team, will end up as practice dummies the next year.

Parents need to wake up. Stop drinking the coolaide. You are being suckered by a slick salesman.

Channy does the same thing every team he coaches. This team is lucky they have under 30 kids (as of now). O'Reilly will stay until his son moves on or graduates. He doesn't have a choice either. It's all a game and they all butter each other's fingers with our money. Even if the coach cares a little bit, it's still money driven. It's a business. Take from it what benefits your son.

You people are all crazy. Channy is the best and will always be the best!! Hands down he has the Whitest teeth your money can buy.. His train does not run on coal, it runs on cash baby $$$. Got to love the man, proven winner!! He proves it everyday when he cashes your checks. Hey next payment is due, please make sure they are on time..$$$$

Starting a new topic.

-What are people opinions regarding lacrosse clinics?
-Are there particular ones that people recommend on Long Island?
- Are there ones people have found were not worth the extra investment?
- Are there private coaches that people feel were worth the investment?

-What are people opinions regarding lacrosse clinics? (small groups, 6 or less are better)
-Are there particular ones that people recommend on Long Island? (there are dozens, but don't make the mistake that people always make of convenience, travel to find the best)
- Are there ones people have found were not worth the extra investment? (One on one that does shooting skills and general stick skills. I hate an hour of shooting on the run, great learn how to catch and throw, so you can shoot.)
- Are there private coaches that people feel were worth the investment? (I would rather not comment, because if I do I worry that somebody will come out with negative comments)

Zummo’s clinic is good, but he needs to separate our boys from the older boys. Too much of a skill differential. I thought my kid was going to get his head taken off last year.

Speak up to the directors person to person. And say what you say above.
Looking for a 5th Grade Goalie for a small 7v7 tournament this Sunday Oct 22nd.. No Charge.. we are a NYC developmental program, we are using our best midfielder at goalie because we can't find one, would like him to get his reps at middie..Games are short 18 minute running time we have 4 games they are between 3pm and 6pm on Randalls Island we get a 5th game if have one of the 2 best records. We are playing against other NYC clubs the competition is probably B/C level. If there is a 5th grade goalie looking for more reps let me know, you can email bomberslacrosseclub@aol.com

Many of the kids on lacrosse teams play other sports - as they should - and have conflicts. Fall ball for Lax is always tough to get the entire team at practice. Baseball, Football, Basketball, School, Kids sick... ALL kids especially at 10 should play more than just Lax. ALL the lax teams face this issue, so it wont be different anywhere else.

i don't understand your post. 2024 kids are suppose to be in 6th grade. they graduate in june of 2024.


So it is ok for a sixth grader, graduating in June 2024 as you point out, to play in 2025?



So in two Yrs. when teams are qualifying for the WS and have to produce their respective Birth Certificates stating they were born after Sept 1st 2006. Some teams will loose older hold back 7th graders but some boys in 8th grade born after the Sept 1st cutoff will qualify.....Now does anyone have a problem with those 8th grade on age boys playing? Because I certainly do not.

I would be 100% fine with that. There’s a problem with that example though. The rules for WSYL clearly state the all players must be on the teams all season, and not just for that tournament. This is a new rule this year. So technically, because NY is grade based, those younger 2024’s wouldn’t be eligible to play on the team for the whole season, thereby making them ineligible to play in the WSYL. Kind of a catch 22.

With that being said, I’m sure people will try to circumvent the rule.

So if that's the way to do it, then it should apply to all of the teams. You think its ok now because Channy told you so, but today these teams and Tournaments say 2025. Is the kid graduating in 2024 or 2025? If the answer is 2024 then it's called cheating.

Just have two teams an on grade team and a U13 team in 2 years. Now it is "circumvented". The U13 will have separate practices and play in the qualifiers. In fact, I don't why all clubs just hold separate WSYL tryouts and have a WSYL only team. More tryout fees, more tourney fees and better for business. For example, look at this year add a few 8th graders born after 9/1/04 to some of the 2023 rosters and you'll see some different results. And if the current 2023 all don't make the WSYL team, oh well, that's life. Would love to see those parents at those tryouts...especially the entitled ones. I know I would send my son to tryout for one or two. He has an October birth date, but is on grade. so why not. Seems like an awesome experience and has some major backing. The event will continue to grow.

Channy has taken his time with my son, he has paid attention to him and really demonstrated that he cares about my boys’ best interests and development. And my kid isn’t a superstar or that experienced just yet. I don’t know the man well but thus far our experience has been a positive one. He’s blunt. He’s direct. He doesn’t care who is offended by that approach. He reminds me of old school coaches I had and that’s refreshing in today’s “every kid is a superstar” culture.

Such a hater. Why be that way? It would appear to the casual observer that you might benefit from letting your son have a little fun. Maybe if you ask nicely, (and it's a weekend when your little tyke doesn't have one of Channy's 10 fall tournaments or a private with Channy Jr,) your son can run free with the 'Nuts.

Life is short, it's fun to be a 'Nut!

Looks like Blast is actually following the mantra. Let’s play in only in really weak tournaments this fall against B teams and developmental teams. This way our kids will get some t-shirts this year, because it won’t happen in the summer. SN is the worst example of sportsmanship in youth lacrosse. It’s disgusting.

Serious question. Why is it OK for the TB coach (if you want to call him that) to curse like a sailor on the sideline?

It's not like that act is working. They don't look like the team is good enough as a result of his "efforts" to let young boys get abused like that.

As a parent, that can't be permitted, can it?

Even sadder. You are so paranoid. You assume it’s Nutz coaches always responding to you. But I’m not a Nutz coach or a Nutz parent. There are others on this forum that think what you say is “disgusting”. No one is interested in your team bashing. Start concentrating on having fun with your kid, rather than using your kid to try to be something you wished you had been in your youth. Grow up.

Not involved with any these 3 teams. It's a free country and people are free to do what they want. So want to them you can pay to play with club, however, if you play with mixed nuts, you are cut. "c'mon man!" Let's start having all players sign contracts with each club saying you can play with us. Three Village demands that of their kids and saw the 2022s play today and they can use better coaching in my opinion they are well coached.

It was just my blog rant...point is a team or a coach should never dictate where when a kid should be allowed to play. i find it so annoying.

100% correct. I have no respect for coaches who tell a kid they can't play outside the team. It show's they're insecure. Loyalty is earned, not given.

The Nuts "coaches" are exhibiting poor sportsmanship. Entering A level kids into a B tournament is poor form. Beating teams by 10 + goals is poor form. Loyalty does not only need to be earned by the travel coaches. Be loyal to your teammates and coaches, and they will be loyal to you, too. Just know, you reap what you sow. Good luck to your kids, they may need it in the future.

It was the A bracket. Unless you are saying Igloo and True Blue aren't A teams but their parents might disagree.

Last year express, 91 and igloo played in blatant fall jam a bracket. Sounds like an a tournament. Teams don't know until schedules are posted what teams are playing. Mixed nuts has players from 91, ducks and legacy so they probably only play when those teams are not. Who cares if they are playing on another team? They play for the love of the game.

It's not like that act is working. They don't look like the team is good enough as a result of his "efforts" to let young boys get abused like that.

As a parent, that can't be permitted, can it?


The referees should give a warning for one rant and then throw a flag for the next one. That act needs to be cleaned up!

Here is an option why don't they enter the tournament and play up a year should be more challenging for them.

It's NOT OK and that's why he shouldn't be around kids. What 8-10 yr olds should be subject to hearing that poor excuse of a man to be cursing and throwing hissy fits bc he team gets smoked.

Not a TB parent, but in your eyes, everyone not AA is B, so your flawed perspective is worth nada . . .!

Too funny, you have ZERO perspective on what I view as AA or A or whatever because you have zero clue who's posting. Your arrogance is hysterical. TB is NOT an A team for MANY reasons. There's AA like Geese and Channy... there's A teams and then there's high level B and down the line. TB entered low tier B/C level tourney's and did well - why bc the competition was low tier B/C level. Full of hubris they try to step up and play AA / A level talent... they got smoked and can't hang... THAT'S why they are B level team. Then we can go to the coaching, Cat is a JOKE.... that's all I'll say.

The LI lacrosse 'community' is pervasive across all ages about assessing almost all non AA teams as being "B" - it's actually laughable, so my comment stands . . .

i don't understand your post. 2024 kids are suppose to be in 6th grade. they graduate in june of 2024.


So it is ok for a sixth grader, graduating in June 2024 as you point out, to play in 2025?



So in two Yrs. when teams are qualifying for the WS and have to produce their respective Birth Certificates stating they were born after Sept 1st 2006. Some teams will loose older hold back 7th graders but some boys in 8th grade born after the Sept 1st cutoff will qualify.....Now does anyone have a problem with those 8th grade on age boys playing? Because I certainly do not.



So if that's the way to do it, then it should apply to all of the teams. You think its ok now because Channy told you so, but today these teams and Tournaments say 2025. Is the kid graduating in 2024 or 2025? If the answer is 2024 then it's called cheating.


I think Its ok because I am the parent!!! A coaches job is to coach/teach my kid. That's it. Cheating???You say cheating, but you are ok with a kid who is born in March or June etc. of 2006 and the kid is in 5th grade?Technically older then the young 2024??? Sounds like you are the proud parent of a hold-back child to get an edge on the only sport he can. You sound scared. Don't be, they are the same age.

Goalie dads, can anyone give me their honest thoughts on whether it is worth it to have your goalie son play with a club team ? Or is it better to continue just with individual, specialized training ? I have been told my son should be playing club but have been reluctant to go further given the cost and whether it is really worth it from a goalie's perspective. However, I understand the idea that you cant replicate playing with and against better kids. Thanks !

My son played middie and was asked to get into the cage because his team didn't want to take last years goalie back. Kids MUST play in games.. a lot of being a good goalie is mental, overcoming giving up a few goals. It sucks but your going to end up spending more money than the rest of the team.
We got lucky, we have a goalie coach that retired in my town and loves to work with my son. I would ask around.. goalies are all crazy and love helping each other out.

Sorry pal but the rules are the rules and you are a Cheat! My son is February 07 and easily on age. Birthday lottery winner but poor tax planning.

Sadly, my son has already been told this phony holdback story by your sons teammates who willingly talk about him behind his back. Then the other Express families are snickering about what kind of parents you and your wife are. They are polite, but most are just saddened by the whole sordid deal. One or two whose kids got screwed by you and Channy want to confront you but it's hard to go against the scum. We all know that you know better, it's just wrong and what you have chosen to do disrespects everyone.

Any victories for the team will be hollow, and worst of all your son knows he is a 6th grader playing down. I hope it doesn't eat at him, but it absolutely should eat at you.
