Travel lacrosse is a business - the clubs don't operate to help each other, they compete, and they all are vying to sign kids up "first".

Curious if there are any coaching changes at 9d1, express, legacy or igloo for this age?

Still no prices and we are at tryouts already. I can't believe how dumb I am to pay for a tryout for a team that will not give me the cost!!

my guess is about $3800 because they're including winter practices, the fall program, 2 fall tournaments and a spring tournament - none of which was included last year.

Other programs exist. Why insist on going to 9D1 or express? Why be sheep? Why pay such huge prices for travel lacrosse. Gather up friends and find a team that fits your needs - location, amount of practices, location of tournaments, how many tournaments, when the season is over, winter practices, etc.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2026 - 4th Grade Fall 2017/Summer 2018 - 08/10/17 01:57 PM
Empire and the Ducks haven't posted their prices either. I am guessing that the prices are going up a lot.

Great coaches, but yes all 5 have kids on team. Additionally a nephew of a coach and a cousin of the igloo owner. Team is solid though.

It will be good for your boy to go with Mike initially, he is a good guy and good youth coach. But somehow it will blow up and you will need to find another place. It just seems to work out that way. Not sure why, but he never gets it going for the long term.

He is not. He lessened his teams so he can actually spend time with his boys and watch them in college. There is not secret invite team.

He will have his own team soon enough. It will be something for him and his sons to do together and make some bank.

Based on what you will get, it looks like they did pass along some savings. I was expecting a lot more, so the number from 91 is a pleasant surprise. We have our boy signed up.

The 9d1 A team is reported to be 2,900. With the spring season and winter training as well. Seems like a bargain. I'd like to see what each side is offering side by side. On the training side they are evenly split though.

is that $3800 for the 2026 team? that is absurd if true. what can they be doing that would warrant that tuition. the kids in the recruiting age aren't paying that amount.

Like the person earlier commented, it better include new equipment and a stick. LOL

that is ABSURD, things need to change and I hope people realize they don't need to be paying this kind of money for any kid no matter how old.

I have been apart of travel lacrosse since 2008 and the costs were around $500 and now they have increased to over $3000. Unless a scholarship is part of the tuition I would not do it.

Yes, but back in 2008 it was probably true that a travel lacrosse program just had some late spring practices, and a handful of summer tournaments. Now, the programs that are charging 3K and up are offering year round programing. If you break it down into its component parts, the costs may seem reasonable.

I hate to break it to you but .most programs are charging extra for winter practices. For a 4th grader there is no reason you have to spend 3k.remember you still have 6 more years of travel and with travel expenses you are looking at 30k. And then add individual and optional team trainings

Just to correct. No where near $4k. It is a modest $3,800 for Express A at this age.

Is there really A and B programs at 9yo? My son is 5 and I am looking for a program.

What does Dad Ball mean?

I actually saw the Igloo team on Saturday move the ball better than some 6th grade teams.

It was a well coached team and the boys looked like they were having a great time.

Yes. Some town programs can compete and even beat B level teams though. The A are the elite. Daddy ball is when the head coach and/or other coaches are dads of some of the players. I guess some feel those kids get more playing time because their dad is the coach. In a perfect world the coaches would be independent and have no biases.

Daddy ball can be more than just "more time" - it can be placement on a team they otherwise would not even make, as well as play in situations where they are not the best option(s), IE, extra man, man down, etc.

Just to correct. No where near $4k. It is a modest $3,800 for Express A at this age.

Nope its $2900 base then when you add in additional winter training and what not it goes to $3800. Of course you can decide not to do the extras.

Guessing because they are essentially a newer/young team. They had 1st, 2nd and 3rd graders on the 2026slast year. Interested in seeing if they can compete this year.

Weather was fantastic great day of lax all around.

The CSH Roar had great coaching with some really good athletes on that team at this grade level. Goalie kept them in the game and should be very proud of how he played.

Igloo Dire Wolves vs Roar for final was a competitive game. A lot of fun to watch parents on both sides were great unlike some of the other games.

Some parents at the other games should really remember that we are watching children play a game. There is no need to yell at the ref for stopping a play because the opposing teams player is hurt.

Just think twice before you yell something stupid....Please!!!

If its just children playing a game, why not stop it is a child is hurt. Only thing that should matter is the child's safety. As you said "remember that we are watching children play a game". If kids were playing on your front lawn and you saw one hurt would just let them lay there to they were done playing? Stop tooting your own horn pal, your just like all the others, its about winning. Get a grip buddy.

Looking for some feedback/opinions with respect to defensive minded coaches and teams at this age level. For most, this is the first year they can go long pole but not many teams seem to have the separate coaching for the defensive players (i.e., defensive coordinator) or separate during practices for defensive specific drills. Dedicated defensemen seem to get lumped in with the group -- mainly an offensive game -- and aren't given the detailed instruction. We're committed to a team this year but, looking forward, want to keep eyes and options open... even when it comes to position clinics/camps (limited for D as well). Any experiences or thoughts (past/present)?

4th graders dude. They should still be learning all positions at this age and not be dedicated to one position. Don’t worry about defensive specific coaching yet.

I'm not sure about the 2026 91 coaches specifically but the 91 program itself runs a weekly clinic over the winter that is broken down by position. It is included in each players tuition. Defensemen train specifically on defense, train with long poles and skills related to playing the position. My kid did it last year and got a lot out of it, plus it was fun. Last year they had Nicky Polanco of the Bayhawks running it.

If you son wants to play with a pole, the first part of that can/should be done at home. Start with a goalie shaft so you don't have to cut down an expensive long pole. Goalie shafts are less expensive and are 40" long which is perfect for a new pole. Get him outside doing wall ball and learning to handle the longer shaft. Then roll out some ground balls and practice scooping them on the run. If he's liking it all get him a defensive head like the STX Hammer and have it strung with a high pocket (better for ground balls). Once he's comfortable with the stick, send him to practice with it.

Appreciate the feedback on 91. I'm sure as the years move on, they progress more with position specifics. Good to know what's out there.

Or go to a club like Tomahawks and pay $1800 to get the winter practices, fall tournaments and spring practices and tournaments!! More bang for your buck!

Does all club organizations charged an extra tournament fee @ $125 per kid per tournament on top of there yearly tuition without discussing it with the team ??? New to club and seems like a money grab . Thanks

Every club does this. Please tell me what great organization doesn't. Legacy asked for input on tourneys before they finalized, so if you had a problem, why didn't you say anything to the coach before crying on here like a little [ChillLaxin].

With three boys having in played with five different organizations, I have never paid extra for a tournament other than one time when it was decided upon by parents AND coaches to enter into an additional tourney above and beyond the pre-agreed upon (and padi for!) number. So, "no", it doesn't happen with every club, and not even even with most!

Ok, so, registration for Legacy states that 4 tourneys were included in tuition. Coach asked for input on schedule. They are going to 5 tourneys this summer. So they want money for the extra tourney. I believe they were very transparent with it.

Most clubs do 5 or 6 tourneys - why 'commit' to 4, take payment for same, and then add another one after?? Commit to 5 or 6, take payment for them and be done with it, and no issues thereafter like they have now.

100% legacy does not ask the families , it’s my 1st season with them and they did it last year I know from people that are with them. It’s a sneaky little surcharge $125 per player with 20 plus kids on the team comes out to about double or more than the tournament is. I understand yes pay the coach etc... how about the team that has daddy coaches ? They are adding and charging for tournaments that are not even started yet for the spring and summer. I love watching my Son play but every weekend on the field in the spring and summer gets old. JMO

First off, why are you posting "anonymous"? Why, because you know it is bull. If your son was on the team, you would have gotten asked by the coach in the Remind Me and by text, for input on the upcoming season's tourneys and if you had any problems with them.
You also post "anonymous" because you are probably the same person replying to your own posts above. So the last two posts are Fake News.

This is stardard practice for every club. When you agree to join, you are given a detailed list of what is included; practices, tournaments, gear, etc... Maybe they include Fall, Winter and Spring tournaments; but most don’t. Those are paid for additionally, depending on who attends. Likewise for winter training (indoors). You mention daddy coaches. Well, those kids are not included in the cost of the tournament. So if you have 3-4 kids not paying, costs increase for everyone else. If it’s an away tournament, you’re likely paying for coaches hotels as well. That’s why it’s important to sue your due diligence before joining a team. The more daddy coaches you have, the more the add-Ons will cost you.

I’m posting anonymous because I can . You either are a coach or director and looking out for them. There’s no fake news here I’m saying didn’t get no emails , texts letters ETC ... from them and nothing from the coach about it. Maybe your have to have a meeting with all coaches then coaches can address it to the team or team parent . Call a chain of command and it’s not clear to the the team. Ok great practices are cancelled and not made up I get credit ? If I miss a tournament due to something else that weekend , party , graduation etc do I pay for the extra tournament ? Tell me because you must be someone from them saying you reached and its not true .

What club doesn't include tournament costs in their fee? You're crazy! Have been involved with numerous clubs with multiple sons in club lax, and never have they not included tourney fees! And tournament fees are team based - whether you have a team of 11 or 45 (cough . . . Express . . . cough), the fee is not any different.

Tell me because you must be someone from them saying you reached and its not true .


Its fake news and you are a straight up liar. If you were actually on the team, you were 1-sent an Remind Me on 12/19/17 @ 9:09 (spring schedule on the website. Please look it over and let me know of any concerns) and then a text right after that. 2- on 12/29/17 @ 11:20 you were sent another text and Remind Me (Are there any concerns or complainants with the summer schedule? Talking to Legacy today about finalizing everything. Please let me know). So again, Fake News, and no, I'm not a coach, but just a parent calling you out.

What club doesn't include tournament costs in their fee? You're crazy! Have been involved with numerous clubs with multiple sons in club lax, and never have they not included tourney fees! And tournament fees are team based - whether you have a team of 11 or 45 (cough . . . Express . . . cough), the fee is not any different.


You’re not understanding my post. When you signed up, you paid for X amount of tournaments, Y amount of practices and a gear package. That is what the club promises you for your money. If your coach decides to enter additional tournaments in the winter or spring, above and beyond the 5 that you paid for, then you will need to pay extra for them. It’s pretty much common sense. As far as additional tourney fees; if there are 20 kids on the team and the tournement cost $1000, everyone should pay $50. However, if 4 of those kids are coaches kids, then you’re dividing that $1000 by 16. Now if the coaches need hotel rooms, your dividing $1900 by 16. Understand? That’s how it works.

If that's what the complaint is about then, "yeah". But, that's not what I (and, apparently others responding similarly to me) took the complaint to be - it sounded more like they were asking for fees for ALL of the tourneys being played in.

I’m posting anonymous because I can . You either are a coach or director and looking out for them. There’s no fake news here I’m saying didn’t get no emails , texts letters ETC ... from them and nothing from the coach about it. Maybe your have to have a meeting with all coaches then coaches can address it to the team or team parent . Call a chain of command and it’s not clear to the the team. Ok great practices are cancelled and not made up I get credit ? If I miss a tournament due to something else that weekend , party , graduation etc do I pay for the extra tournament ?

posted on website that’s what u said on whatever day and time , posted on website so that means it’s done they added a tournament before going it over with the team and parents. I received no email or text. I do get there emails but never got one saying we are adding a tournament . My point is do the right thing. People pay a lot of money and they slap another tournament without going over with the team first. It’s a shady move. How about the Club give back to the team , nicevtent for tournaments , a banner something .. legacy looks like garbage at tournaments . Depends on the spring I may move on next year with my son but as for now I’m son is on the team I paid my tuition in full so I can cry about it.

I have been doing the club thing for a few years now. It does seem it is a common occurrence for clubs to ask you to pony up for an extra tournament. It doesn't happen every year but it happens a lot. I don't think its always done with malicious intent. A few times a tournament we signed up for didn't have enough teams in a certain age group. They signed us up for a different tournament and charged us the difference. If you have an older kid and only get 4 tournaments included in your tuition, assume you will get charged for more. Most clubs do at least 5 and some do even more. Don't be afraid to crunch the numbers and ask how your money is getting spent for the extra tournament. If they give you a hard time for asking, look for another club

I think you'll find at this age group that 91, Express and Legacy A teams rule the roost. Outlaws is very close but not on same level.

Take it easy right now, don't allow yourself or son become part of the insanity at 4th grade lacrosse. If you want to go travel, select a team closest to your home. Just remember, lacrosse is a big business here on the Island. Likewise, if you fall in the trap of multi. clinics, privates, etc someone will gladly accept you hard earned money. And, I've never heard of anyone offering lessons telling a parent their son doesn't have what it takes...

Here are my thoughts on rankings so far. And this is just for fun and directional. Keep your crazy comments aside. (Only includes the LI teams I have seen)
1. 91 Storm - Beat Express 2 out of 3 times in champ...
2. Express Haugen
3. Igloo
4. Legacy
5. Outlaws
6. RVC Futures
7. Harveys
8. Moose Lax
......24, Empire, Fighting Ducks, True Blue, 91B, Express B, Igloo B.... All could win on any given day.

If the Outlaws/RVC or others want to be considered in the top tier they need to enter in the A brackets of tourneys. H’s, shore 2 shore and Moose do it and at least deserve respect for that. The only way to get better. After the top 4 there is a canyon drop off.The top 4 usually play each other tough and each has wins against each. I think 91/Express are 1 and 2 but Legacy or Igloo can give them a run for their money. May not win but they are the only competitive games they will see on the island.

That 2027 team was given an easy schedule, as was Empire -- Knights, Harveys, Ducks. That scheduling never had a chance of seeing the 2 best teams in the championship game.

Sorry, they go to real tourneys and play MD and NJ teams. And don't line the pocket of "My Lacrosse" oh I mean 91 at their own tourneys. Also, how does it feel to be a Legacy cast off sitting on the bench of a 28 kid team and pay $3k to 91, and play in all their made up tourneys. Look at all the BS tourneys from "My Lacrosse Tournaments" you go to, pay $3k for entry fees, for your own tourneys. And this weekend's NLF tourney, that other teams have to pay to be a part of to enter, then pay big bucks to enter the tourney, is also a My Lacrosse Tournament scam. Hey, but you get Champs t-shirts, that you get when you beat up the other B/C teams that are owned by 91,(Ducks, Empire) in a 91 run tourney. Hey, but your champs.

You didn't need to see a birth certificate to see that Laxechusett's & Bethesda had older kids on their teams. The standings are below.

Lots of good games - most were very close. (At least the ones that I saw were close.)

I don't think there was much separation between any of the teams. I think at least three of the teams could easily finish 1st and all of them had a solid chance. I wish they would put the full results on the website but I guess that won't happen.

Overall, good competition. Nice for the kids to see different teams.

You didn't need to see a birth certificate to see that Laxechusett's & Bethesda had older kids on their teams. The standings are below.

Laxechusett's
Express
Bethesda
Primetime
91


Agreed with above. Overall, any one of these games could have went the other way. Very competitive games. I do agree that the Bethesda and Laxachusett's boys appear to eat many more vegetables than the LI kids, as they amazingly are 4"-6" taller and have far more developed athleticism than the 9-10 year olds playing on the the LI teams.

my son's team played both and there may have been a slight athleticism edge with a few kids but not sure it can be attributed to age as hold backs don't start to middle school if I am not mistaken. will make for competitive summer and great games. game is growing and better athletes are coming. my older kids teams never had issues with them at this age group. all the games were competitive, better this way.

Going to be some good competition at this age. Express - Haugen, 91 Storm, and Igloo are all great games every time played....

Hopefully better than the 4th and 5th grade brackets last year where there were only 4 teams in each division. Its basically 2-3 Express teams for each division... and they'll still brag about winning a championship when their squads make up 75% of the bracket.

I agree. The entire tournament looks solid. I wasn't expecting to see such a nice tournament lineup.

Exactly. Same old stuff with these 91 and Express backed tourneys. Get another W for their top teams so they look dominant and people pay money to come to a tryout because they want to be a part of it. Give them credit... the numbers at tryouts shows it works.

Not much chatter on here regarding this age group. Season has wrapped up for most part and there were a few different champions across the tourneys. Express seemed to take a few, 91 and Outlaws had a couple (granted different brackets). Couple others grabbed one. Other than Lax Fest, didn't seem like many of the top teams were ever in the same tourneys together. Saw some kids who were really on their game already. Going to be interesting to see how this group stacks up come 5th and 6th grade. Tryouts (and changes) around the corner. Coaching changes, new teams, etc. Let the fun begin...
Posted By: Anonymous (NA) Re: Boys 2026 - 4th Grade Fall 2017/Summer 2018 - 07/17/18 06:50 PM
There are a few A teams only. Town teams have been beating "B" teams. If any of the other parents are like me, they are probably waiting for the other teams to develop a little more before committing time, money, etc. Maybe this upcoming year more talent tries out?

Thinking Haugen's A Express team is on top right now (and no, not an Express parent). Too many kids on the team but, the ones they have and play, are solid. 91 Orange Storm isn't far behind.

There are only really 4 A teams; Express Haugen, 91 Storm, Legacy and Igloo. Any others would get blown out by any of these 4. Express and 91 go back and forth, but are the top 2 and have very large rosters.

Being an A team and playing in the A bracket are two different things. Legacy is not an A team. That's like saying the Outlaws are an AA team because they played in that bracket for Lax Clash.

Express plays Igloo well, Igloo plays 91 well, Express vs 91 is a free for all every time. Games have been blow outs on either side and 1 goal games often. These 3 will continue to put on a good show for next few years. Legacy has slipped a bit, but has some kids that can certainly play. Express did end the Spring strong with wins over some big out of state teams (Lax, Beth, PT, Eclipse...) 91 did well also out of state at end of season. Have fun at the tryout circus!

Laxachusetts
Posted By: Anonymous (NA) Re: Boys 2026 - 4th Grade Fall 2017/Summer 2018 - 07/19/18 11:17 AM
Laxachusetts won the NLF beating LI Express Haugen twice (including the final). They went 3-0 at LaxClash before losing to LI Express by 1 goal in semis (great game). They won the Young Guns tourney in MD beating the Annapolis Hawks (in a great final), Madlax Capital, Cannons Selects and Tigers 2026 (Philly). I would say from what I saw that the top 3 teams are Laxachusetts, Li Express and Annapolis Hawks, not in any particular order.
Posted By: Anonymous (NA) Re: Boys 2026 - 4th Grade Fall 2017/Summer 2018 - 07/19/18 05:17 PM
Based on what I watched throughout the year, I would also put Express Haugen as the top team also. 91 and Igloo would follow behind.

Posted By: Anonymous (NA) Re: Boys 2026 - 4th Grade Fall 2017/Summer 2018 - 07/24/18 08:54 PM
Somewhere between 70-90 kids at 91 camp/tryout... 4 different teams moving between scrimmages with 18+ on each. A good chunk of those kids couldn't catch/throw a ball. Some kids there just for the "camp" aspect... $165 for full day plus lunch and a pair of shorts... can't beat the price. Didn't seem like they were evaluating much of anything. More like a practice with coaches and existing players running set plays. Good for their business though. Even with just 70 kids paying, it's almost $12,000 for one age group.

Practice once a week at Seamans Neck Park, Seaford. Coaches are good and the kids love them. I believe 26/27 kids on team last year.

If you do an added tourney, all teams charge for the extra tourney. If you do a seventh tourney, they do charge usually. That's the only "extra" charge this guy keeps crying about.

Crying about ?? When there craps tournaments thruout the year then add one on there own not letting families have a decision about it . Go to Maryland for a crap tournment but don’t enter Lax Feast ? They been pulling that extra tournment crap for years . Just a money grab @ $125 a kid . Do the math $125 @ 23 kids on the team.

Normally if you opt not to go to the extra tournament, you dont pay the fee. Isnt that the case with Legacy? They cant force you to pay for a tournament that was not part of the original contract which you dont attend.

Good clubs do respond.
Try Rebels. They respond immediately.
R.U.S.H. will respond.
Knights respond well.

Avoid teams that have to do with Dynamic. Not good responses.
But Express will respond well.

Because they are all hush hush until teams are establish And then deal with the coaches . It’s all Fake , B.S business. Too much hush hush stuff , all cash to the coaches , tournaments , equipment . They are not loyal to you.

Top 3 need the money. Of course they’ll respond. They’re desperate for players and don’t have strong products. They’re essentially new or rebranded and need money. It’s not necessarily a matter of being a good club that causes the response.

I dont agree the top 3 are desperate for players. At the B level maybe, not at the A level.

But I agree just responding doesnt mean its a good club. And if they respond a lot of what they say is lies.

But strangely, Dynamic lacrosse (which manages 91, Empire, and now East Coast lacrosse) is very poor on customer service. The people working there dont know what customer service means.

Red flag of frustration in my opinion for clubs that can’t answer an email. Mind boggling If they don’t respond me and you pay, you can’t complain. You chose, as the paying customer, to place your son on the team.
Posted By: Anonymous (NA) Re: Boys 2026 - 4th Grade Fall 2017/Summer 2018 - 07/28/18 05:14 PM
I agree. If a club doesn’t respond to an email I cross them off the list. I shouldn’t have to haggle you to pay you 3-4K. If you don’t want to answer my questions I’ll spend my money elsewhere. The bigger clubs usually respond because they have much bigger staffs. The bigger clubs will want players for their B teams.Not their A teams. If your kid has a tremendous amount of talent than he could make an A team. I’m sure people will disagree but I think it’s ridiculous that these big clubs charge the same price for the A and B teams. Just my opinion
15 total. 3 new kids and 12 returnees.

And 3rd grade 2028 White team

What do you do post same thing in every age group? If someone wants to pay that’s their choice. Opinion are just that your opinion and nobody really cares what you think. Everyone had the right to decide what’s best for their kid themselves.

Stop it already. Your posts are making you look desperate. Push your own club if you need to, but stop bashing the top teams. You get what you pay for.

No problem.
Thats why I post it.

Why should they care if I post the figures, if they think its a legit product?
Because they know its a scam.
A big money grab with overloaded rosters.

Absolutely correct!!! If we refuse to pay these prices, these teams/ businesses would fold. We have nobody to blame but ourselves!! How about those families that pay thousands for a club team and in addition pay for private one on ones???!!! MADNESS
