Props to Team LI 2023 in the Warrior All-American Games at UMass. (i know, i know, a money grab and rigged and whatever). Maybe the only time every other region was rooting for LI. After Team Mid-Atlantic beat them in pool play, the DC-MD boys continued to deploy stall tactics and pick fights and walk after goals to run out the clock with their coach proudly claiming it was within the rules. Sheesh. Nice to see LI gave them a smackdown in the championship.

The shouldn't Their top team lost the majority of their games, and their second team didn't win at all. One isn't an "A" team, and the other isn't a "B"

Actually that isn’t true. There were a handful of kids that played on qualifying teams. Time to move on from the WSYL, its over cooked. Enjoy your memories, They also went the “superstar” route last year with the “superstar” coach. They didn’t win, funny things happen when you don’t bring older kids to your WSYL teams. Maybe make you a regular coach. We will enjoy the moment and move on accordingly, seems you haven’t reached that point yet.

Whats the story with Igloo A? Did they lose a bunch of players? Seems like a couple of teams fell apart after WSYL. Kind of disheartening as a team putting the amount of time, effort and money into making it to WSYL to have kids leave.

What does their A team not winning all their games have to do with anything? Express, Igloo, 90+1 all have A team’s that didn’t win all their games and they still have B teams. The S2S B team won a few or came close. Not terrible for their 1 st season. The Express C team is worse and they still exist.

You know it’s two complete different type of events, right? One is a team based tournament the other is a player based tournament. You know you can’t send your team to the warrior games, right? Warrior is a fun, end of season event, much like a camp. It’s a place for kids to enjoy Lacrosse and meet new friends on the teams and play against kids from other parts of the country. You also know that WYSL and Warrior Games are run and sponsored by the same companies, right? Do you want me to end or should we keep at it?

that happens to many of the big clubs. They put these teams together for the Soul purpose, to try and win the WSYL and it breaks these teams up the following year be the The loyal ones finally see the truth, and end up leaving the next year !! WSYL is a joke. Its not for the kids, it for the CLUBS. BIG MONEY MAKER.

I'd respectfully disagree as many of the WSYL teams are not teams during the rest of the season since there is an age cutoff. Just off the top of my head:

Team Israel, Michigan, Colorado, Big 5, Evolve were teams formed from kids from several regular season clubs. Long Island is the outlier i think in having closer to pure teams since their school year lends itself more to the age cutoff for the WSYL and their talent depth on the top teams is stronger.

Additionally, I'd argue that most of the kids enjoyed the pomp and circumstance and meeting new kids and the chance to play with new kids on their own teams and other teams in the hotel and other events to be the best part of that tournament.

I don't think any tournament can compete from an overall "experience" to the WSYL but that comes with a pretty big cost as well. I personally like that there are so many different offerings for kids (some more competitive, some more about the "experience", some a hybrid). It's unfortunate that people feel the need to compare them and challenge which one is the best rather than embrace the choices and participate in the ones that fit your team/players goals

Cause Igloo is a RIPPPPPPPPPPPPPOFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF. For what you pay you dont get close to that back in production(practices, coaches, etc)
From what I understand they raised their prices again and the girls program has 1 team and they are raising them 25%.....1 elite team i mean

Have you guys thought for a moment that kids are leaving top programs because they want to:
1. Play with friends
2. Tired of not being able to play a second sport that they love (Most of the kids from the top teams this year played lax from early June to the end of July)
3. Parents are tired of traveling all over the place.

Why is this stirring the pot? I think it is a valid question. If you are on a top team there are only so many choices of where you move to.

You move to another top team or stay where you are. You don't go from an'A' program to a 'B' program.

40+ Kids at a pretryout camp, I was pretty impressed with the level of talent. I accepted my sons invite, and my sons 2 friends who got invite (talented kids) also accepted, so not sure what pot you are trying to stir. Maybe your kids didn't get an invitation?

Well this has no backing, was a tryouts, and was very talent filled. Not sure who just showed up or who took spots but from the talent at the tryouts can definitely be a very solid team. My son didn't make after first tryouts but will try to make it again at the next one.

This is clearly a parent talking here. Kids want to play with friends and get on the field. You think anyone knows the bandits have a 2nd faceoff kid that's better than the coaches son or any of the other top players on that team that do not play. Parents need to listen to their kids and not their own selfish pride. Your player on a top team cannot be seen or get better sitting the bench.

The prices some of these clubs are asking for is crazy. What's even more crazy some will give whatever is asked, no questions asked.

B team struggled as it's their first year. Needs to improve at most positions. Everything was well organized. Training was very good. We liked the coach. Not sure why he left. My hunch is the team he went to will be practicing closer to home/work. My sons liked him. Dont know anything about the new guy. My son is going to try changing to middle so not sure what teams he'll make after all the tryouts. heck be trying out for s2s again.

I hope everyone find the right team for their son this year. They are 8th graders now. Some will be on MS teams, some JV, Some Varsity, They need to be playing period. Riding the bench to be on an A team is notIntelligent..

No. You go where your kid sees the field so he can play.

Tryouts should be wrapping up shortly. Hope everyone got (made the team) they wanted. it's so true, many people say field time is important at this stage of the game. What sense does it make to be on a team and never see the field other than practices. Remember before you accept that invite, ask questions. Many of the top organizations have coaches that are "snake oil" salesmen. listen to what they say. Many times their sales pitch will not complete a full circle.
Good luck!

I wouldn't say I am dialed into every organization. Having had 4 kids go thru the process. I would say you get to know who is who.
All good programs just a lot of movement at this age.
Express willing to stir the pot and bring on new kids to disrupt what wasn't broken. They are the top 2 teams and did a great job. Igloo is a very solid organization and wouldn't count them out. 91 sits at the top with a good coach. Let's keep the tourneys on the island.

I can't believe the large increase in tuition for many clubs. Express, Igloo, 91. I think 91 made the biggest jump. The Bandits are one thing, but paying Bandit money for 91's second team is out of the question. If Wolfpack wins WSYL I can only imagine what it will go up then. To each is own!

That wolf Pack team a mess. Like the Smash , United team when they combined, but the tuition will still go up. Heard there was no Helmets included as well

When there are more teams than players its time to short them. I'm creating an ETF made of Igloo, 91, Shore to Shore, True Blue, Recon, Express, Rebels, Outlaws, Sharks, Legacy, Igloo B, Express B, 91B, 91 C, Shore to Shore B, Bluefish, Dodgers.,Fast Break, Millon, .....and shorting it.

That's a great idea. Please let me know what the symbol will be listed as so I can make some money off of this too. On the other hand you clearly believe no one is offering anything to separate themselves from the others so are we headed for a Lax market meltdown?

Truth is I wish the smaller clubs would get together and form A and B teams and tournaments at a competitive price. If they are not talking about it I hope they do not for my kids case but because 91 and Express has a strange hold on the market with their NLF and 91's MyLacrosse Tournaments

It's time for a revolution .

It really does not matter which club you sign up for. If you attended any of the national tournaments like Millon or NLF teams hand out uniforms in the parking lot to guest players from teams not playing or eliminated. No coaching anymore just more recruiting

Express has done an incredible job collecting some of the craziest parents going. My guess is Chan has found another revenue stream selling tickets to the sideline show.

Express = very good recruiting + mediocre coaching = a lot of wins but not much improvement in players performance. So what’s the point.

The revolution is coming. The amount of money some parents are forking over for their kids to play lacrosse is ridiculous. Wait until one of these mommies drop a sexual harassment lawsuit against the coach/organization.

Apparently Rebels made the right move and parted ways with some of their weaker players... definitely had a lot of talent at the first camp. Think there will be some surprising moves of top players to the Rebels. Think they will surpass S2S and True Blue this year and compete with Igloo. Think Express/91 have separated themselves as top 2.

Who do you think will have the best Fairfield County team for 2018/2019, now that the tryout results are posted for Eclipse, LIE North and 2way. What are your thoughts on size of team (# of players), skill level, coaching, politics? I know it's too early to tell, but I'm just wondering if anyone is hedging bets.

Thanks Rebels director. Give it up. The rebels will be weak. They will definitely not compete with 91 or Express Haugen.

Bandits and Express A are the two best teams in 2023. None of there top players are going anywhere. You may get an Igloo or S2S kid swap teams or tryout for the other two and may make it but those four teams are the top. Any other team in 2023 are what the are they won't compete with the top four, thats the reality of it. There is not one top player from those four teams looking to play anywhere but on those teams. After those four you have TB, Warriors, Rebels/Outlaws, Empire etc... (No Particular Order) Hope all the kids had good tryouts and all they are happy where they end up, good luck and have fun.

Yes all other top teams are done with tryouts so they either knew who they wanted or never thought players would leave the team. It will be hard to replace the players that left even if they did not play much with top players who will move the needle in a direction for them because those players have all committed to other teams.

Not organized? You will have a practice and tourney schedule in the fall. Winter training is the same day, same time every week. Not sure what you mean but every year it is in flux. They started 3 years ago with 1 team and made the WSYL. Someone did something right. If you told me 3 years ago they would have been in Denver I would have laughed. I don’t have a kid on the team but they are doing something right. They just added teams at other age levels and some were very successful this year. Sounds like you have a personal issues with this team.

DK is no longer coaching and Rooney is the HC. Great coach but late tryouts could be a problem if looking to add or replace any players that left.


Not organized and every year in flux. It’s a headless horse and no one with a solid track record to run the ship.


Fake news. Only heard of 1 high maintenance player (high maintenance parent) that is leaving. So sorry to disappoint all of the haters that would love to see this team fail, but these boys will be back together in the fall, stronger than ever.

Not organized? You will have a practice and tourney schedule in the fall. Winter training is the same day, same time every week. Not sure what you mean but every year it is in flux. They started 3 years ago with 1 team and made the WSYL. Someone did something right. If you told me 3 years ago they would have been in Denver I would have laughed. I don’t have a kid on the team but they are doing something right. They just added teams at other age levels and some were very successful this year. Sounds like you have a personal issues with this team.


every team has people who hate them for a myriad of reasons. this is one of them. i agree, they are probably one of the more organized groups out there. you can hate personalities if you want but bark up the right tree with your supposed gripes.

High maintenance? I guess a person should just sit back, pay the tuition and not question a dam thing? You (son) sound like the one the coach thinks the sun rises and sets on...It's going to come a time when your son isn't a favorite of the coach, then you will be singing a different tune.

Lots of express helmets at S2S tonight. Igloo b had a defender and goalie hoping for an upgrade. Several fl$ helmets. Guess the grass isn’t greener on the other side.

DK owns part of the program, not going anywhere, just coaching a couple of the younger teams now. Rooney taking over to take the team through high school. They lost 2 key players to Express - a middie (not the main fogo)and a close defenseman. Losing players to other programs is not unusual at this age. I’m sure S2S will find some upgrades at other positions as well, that’s how it works.

Also have heard Express added about 6 new boys but did not cut any returning boys, which would put their roster close to 30. Last I checked, there is still only one ball on the field at a time. Playing time and touches going to be even more difficult for a team that was plagued with those issues last year.

The B and C Express teams all carry a huge roster. There are many kids that never play. Parents should ask that before they commit to any team. Any more than 25 is ridiculous ( and 25 is pushing it)!

Just do your homework.....
Some clubs are actually not for profit......have field connections which keep costs down....and other perks.

I don’t know about teams off LI but not many are trying to keep the costs down on LI. An organization like Express has lots of connections which should help with field space yet there cost is nuts nd they fill rosters with ridiculous numbers and field extr teams that can’t compete. They definitely aren’t not for profit. Even the charge for tryouts I nuts. But everything is a choice. My kid will never play for Express for that reason alone!

As for the entertainment, it totally is. If you don’t like it you don’t have to be here. Anyone that comes here thinking this is the best place for actual facts is delusional.

The new team is the one with 30 kids that’s getting the braggart’s son. If you beg enough, the team will take your money. Next year the roster will be 40 or so.

Then you were not at the camp either because talent was not there my friend. Kids were slow ball hit the ground alot. Not very good stick skills on most kids. Some kids all they wanted to do was shoot. No ball movement. I was there.

Don’t think they didn’t go through players stats and watch the championship game. They arent calling because they can’t......but your a fool if you don’t think they didn’t take down names. There were def standouts and they are on college coaches radars.

Maybe not now, but recruiting years are the horizon and now is the time players are moving into an organization with a proven track record. Express and 91 have a long list of players recruited to college lax. You may be on a team with a heavy roster but there is a vested interest to get as any players recruited as possible.

Oh my, coach on the rampage after kids who are looking to get better and have a better future. No wonder you got canned from multiple clubs. No coach at Express ever did this to a previous player. Yikes!


Matter of time before he’s canned from this club too. Writing on the wall after he was bumped from his own team!

The B and C Express teams all carry a huge roster. There are many kids that never play. Parents should ask that before they commit to any team. Any more than 25 is ridiculous ( and 25 is pushing it)!

Don’t think they didn’t go through players stats and watch the championship game. They arent calling because they can’t......but your a fool if you don’t think they didn’t take down names. There were def standouts and they are on college coaches radars.

Now that is funny. 6-7 yrs away from college. Oh yeah they're memorizing the names as we speak. The coaches were enjoying 4th of July somewhere, not watching 7th graders you stalker.

While this site can be entertaining.......it provides almost nothing to build integrity for any team. Just a shark tank for gossip and angry parents.
College coaches are not after any of our 2023's yet!!!!!!!
Peace out.....


I don’t know about teams off LI but not many are trying to keep the costs down on LI. An organization like Express has lots of connections which should help with field space yet there cost is nuts nd they fill rosters with ridiculous numbers and field extr teams that can’t compete. They definitely aren’t not for profit. Even the charge for tryouts I nuts. But everything is a choice. My kid will never play for Express for that reason alone!

As for the entertainment, it totally is. If you don’t like it you don’t have to be here. Anyone that comes here thinking this is the best place for actual facts is delusional.

Best S2S righty attackman also left for Express 2024




That makes no sense. Why would the best righty attack leave to play down?

My son would rather play on a team which values him and is reflected in the minutes he receives in games. People are crazy paying 4K/year for their sons to be on a team (not play for) and barely see the field. If it’s for braggery or hopes of getting him recruited through the organization’s “connections”, then how are you going to feel when this portion of our/their lives is over and things didn’t pan out? If your kid is talented enough, he will get noticed. If not, at least he got a chance to play and you were there to watch him.

You sir/ma’am are to sane and logical to be here! Everything you said is spot on! I’d rather the memories of watching him play and grow, rather than “maybe” a draw full of ugly T-shirt’s!

I’m sure S2S will find some upgrades at other positions as well, that’s how it works.

Also have heard Express added about 6 new boys but did not cut any returning boys, which would put their roster close to 30. Last I checked, there is still only one ball on the field at a time. Playing time and touches going to be even more difficult for a team that was plagued with those issues last year.


The B and C Express teams all carry a huge roster. There are many kids that never play. Parents should ask that before they commit to any team. Any more than 25 is ridiculous ( and 25 is pushing it)!


-Ha the top team has 7 additional kids that beg to get on and won’t play
-the b team has 30 kids and a sub par coach that is only there because he gets FREE field space .
-the c team...,
MC uses a reality distortion field to take your $$. These aren’t the droids you’re looking for...


Sounds like some nervous coaches losing a lot of players to Express at all grade levels. . If players are leaving your program for a big roster team you should be concerned.


no more C team for express


I am glad about that. They had no business on the field..

No more c team at express. Mc just created “express east” for suckers out there. The biggest suckers are the parents of the ones on the top team who are not the top 13 including all the new kids joining this year. They can now tell their friends that their kid plays for express A. They won’t touch the field on important situations and will be paying mc while listening to the S2S parent telling everyone how his kid should be in on every play cause he has “the best shot”

Which express kids are they getting. Most of the kids on the top teams have already committed to the team they played on last year or on new teams.

Sounds like a S2S parent is still stinging from their son not getting as much playing time as the kid that left and went to Express. If he and his parents wanted him to be in on every play, they probably would have stayed at S2S, and not went to a better team. I watched the kid your talking about, when he played my son's team, and he did have a great shot.

Bandits from what I heard haven't done much.
Igloo lost 2 starters and 6 bench players
S2S lost there best player

So 1 and 2 stay the same as the two best, I think 3-5 will be a little different by the end of 2018/19 season. Good luck all...

Only a few kids on that team are “top players” just because a given player makes a team doesn’t mean he’s “recognized” you confused fool. Most are there to pay for mc’s beach house. That includes all the new players this year. Write the check and be quiet.

Not the kid parent but it's amazing how people are reacting to a kid leaving a club. He played as much as he wanted so he clearly was not looking for more playing time. People need to worry about their own kids more.

If you are talking about the Express kid who had the most points in the WSYL (by far the best player there) he is an 8th grader who has a November birthday. He is not getting held back, he is not going to the Bandits and his mother does not work for 91.

The biggest problem with this post, and yes I understand that you’re a cool-aid drinker, is that WSYL is not a competitive tournament. The best teams in the grad year do not attend. It’s called marketing.so easy there with your “MVP”

You are not mistaken. The confusion is over this years “mvp” (JM) and last years “mvp” ( AG). Both play for ‘22 Express. But the righty has a house in a Florida, used to play for the Bandits, is grade eligible for 2023, and has a parent who works for 90 + 1. The lefty is age eligible for this years WYSL—but not 2023 grade eligible—and is staying on Express ‘22.

Oh and neither was a real mvp but was the highest scorer. We get what you mean. P

I guess the realization of losing more games is eating at you and your ego. Easy to bash people behind a wall of ananimity.

My bad - I thought you were talking about the 2018 WSYL kid. You are correct - I have now heard that the 2017 WSYL MVP is going to the 2023 Bandits. I also heard he is really good but old for 2022 - now he will be Maryland old for 2023

It's definitely a high caliber team of great players. Low profile, low drama. They'll be in all the AA tournaments.

And if they play in those tournaments they probably won't win many games, the team is filled with bench players that weren't happy with playing time or told that they weren't as good as they thought, well good luck to them.

If you are talking about the Express kid who had the most points in the WSYL (by far the best player there) he is an 8th grader who has a November birthday. He is not getting held back, he is not going to the Bandits and his mother does not work for 91.


The biggest problem with this post, and yes I understand that you’re a cool-aid drinker, is that WSYL is not a competitive tournament. The best teams in the grad year do not attend. It’s called marketing.so easy there with your “MVP”

Guess your still sore that your son's team didn't qualify or even go, give it a rest already.



Not as sore as your wallet! Interesting that those teams who were in the WSYL got there butts handed to them at real tournaments!


Sorry my wallet is just fine, actually enjoyed the trip with my family and stayed a few extra days. What did you do- oh I forgot your son is on a average team that didnt qualify then told you how much of a waste the tournament was to make you feel better. If you are referring to the tournament in MD the teams actually did very well and you would know that if you you were there but again your sons team wasn't good enough to attend. So please give it a rest already and enjoy your sons lax experience it goes fast.

Sounds like a coach with an axe to grind. Maybe the coach isn't as good as he believes he is. Additionally, there are a few teams (established) that shouldn't be in AA tournaments. Oh well...

So the "bench players" you are referring to, who are unhappy and told they weren't as good as they thought, why would they remain on your team if the coaches thought that of them?

Not sure how any team knows if there was a mass exodus yet. Lots of kids tried out for different teams. Doesn’t mean they are actually leaving their current team. So unless you have access to a final roster and saw who gave deposits you have no clue!

Was expected if true. Tryouts were held very late. Express, igloo, 90+1 all locked up their kids at that point. Who were they looking at unless they had agreements already in place

You have proof this isn’t true? A few of the kids I know that tried out have yet to be contacted. Tryouts were Wed. So they must be waiting for people to accept and commit which is causing a delay in making contacts. If they can barely fill one team you can’t expect them to field 2.

Coach arrogance? That's crazy. they don't control any kids destiny. they may think they do. If you are not happy with the service, dump them. Just remember at the end, parents always have the last say, no need to debate. Parents get too hung up on these organizations

The team being discussed lost at least 5 players and the coach who put the team together. Think it qualifies as an exodus.

Where did DK wind up? Are you saying the 5 kids that left are all on whatever team he went to? That would mean that team lost 5 or cut 5 to make room or they just over inflated their roster. Don’t think I would want to be on that team.

2023 was DK’s team. He brought half that that team in. No way there’s no issue. Those players didn’t come to the team for any other reason. Sorry to hurt your ego. Now that he’s gone — so are they. That shouldn’t be a surprise.

Turtles ownership were able to foresee the path youth lacrosse is heading towards. If you take into account what the turtles accomplished with the 2017 group and now the 2020 team, naturally, it was worth having kids tryout.

Formed by prior coach of Mamaz Boyz.
Only $1350- so it is good option.
Tryouts are tomorrow and Tuesday in evening, and also the following week.
Info should be on the Epic Jokers website.

Yes foresee the ability to make some money just like the rest of the clubs.if they only had 1 team I could agree but the fact that they are expanding to more grades just shows the money that's out their for them to take advantage of.

Could it be we are truly the costumer and we should be happy what we are paying for? What a concept.


Parents and players are happy now, just remember the Rebels will always have Outlaws DNA! Enjoy it for now.

Is having the outlaws dna supposed to be a good thing. The 2023 oultlaw team has a history of yelling daddy coaches that weren’t lax players and mediocre performance. In addition they haven’t had a practice yet so I’m pretty sure the parents don’t know if they are happy. I think most of the postings referencing rebels are from rebels directors. Another question, does outlaws dna guarantee spam from rebels.

Yawn!
So you dont like the Rebels, but you dont like the Outlaws as well.
Could it be your son did not make either team and your mad at the whole lax world.
Seems like thats a lot closer to the truth.
Yawn!

There is still one more tryout date, so just give them a call. They will answer any questions you have.

Outlaw DNA is just that:; yelling daddy coaches and mediocre performance. I don't care what anybody says, the two teams are still somehow connected. Last several years, Outlaws have been taking a beating both on and off the field. Creating a new team provided a clean slate. PB and DZ go back a long way along with their kids. I just don't believe for a minute that one has nothing to do with the other. Watch, next year the Outlaws will fall under the Blatant umbrella, as did the teams with DLT. Do you actually think PB, MB and DZ will tell you everything that's going on? But does it really matter in this watered down youth travel market? NO

This is a dumb post. Outlaw DNA, that’s just a notIntelligent. Who cares if they fall under the Blatant Umbrella or the Calloway Umbrella. You don’t have control of that and it’s meaningless in the long run. Owners don’t have to tell you anything about their business operatons for any business. Maybe that’s your problem, you think you deserve to be included in all aspects of a lacrosse team. Good thing the market is watered down, you have so many options and can stay away from Outlaws and Rebels.

Turtles are trying to cash in their 2017 group was very talented the 2020 group is one of the worst on LI


Says the coach who just lost players to the Turtles. Hmmm. He seems familiar with that 2017 team!

Going to a established team is very difficult, it doesn't matter if you son's ability is above his teammates which were apart of the team for several years.On many teams, the parent(s) run the show, now throw in a daddy coach (assistant or head) and all bets are off, and don't for get the team mom with her group of team hens, who have an opinion about everything. Additionally, make sure you don't voice your opinion to the wrong person, because it'll be down hill from there. Are all teams like this, no I can't say that, But what I can say, it ALL begins with the coach. It's simple, treat someone else's kid how you want your kid to be treated and there will be much less drama. If my kid woke up tomorrow morning and said he didn't want to play travel anymore, it will be perfectly fine with me...This crap isn't worth it, no matter what level he plays on!

Maybe, you should think about taking a few remedial grammar classes and/or purchase a dictionary and read it from cover to cover opposed to spending it on travel lacrosse for your kid(s). I'm sure they will not stand in your way!

That was the 2022 team that was asked to play in the True Blue tournament last minute to fill the bracket.

Their 2023 team is a solid B+ team. They have had a couple of kids develop as players and move on, but haven't fallen off. Good program in general, they run Shootout for Soldiers LI and constantly promote giving back thru community service. We've two of our kids playing for them.

Buyer beware with this team. One of the parents tried recruiting my kid with lies and a bunch of trash talk. I decided to stay put, and it looks like I made the right decision. The 6-7 “top” kids on this team are on their third or fourth team in as many years. There’s a reason kids bounce around so much. Cancerous parents with an unrealistic opinion of their son’s ability and selfish play on the field.

Also, I would be very cautious of the “everyone is going to play equally” promise. As a new club, they’re going to need to win. That means shortening the bench in every close game.

Remember that before you cut a check.

Sounds like you think you know about what's going on, either from a parent or a coaches point of view. I think a coach! First of all, no one attempted to recruit your kid(s), they (parents) asked questions about the club in reference and their questions were answered. Further, you say; "it looks like I made the right decision," well coach, you don't sound like you're too sure. Secondly, you're paid too much to lack the intelligence to interpret whats simply written on a web site. You say they promise; “everyone is going to play equally,” well the web site doesn't state that. Further, I assure you the 6-7 top kids on that Team, neither the parents nor do their kids know who you are and quite frankly don't give two hoots about what you think or what you are about. That said, go ask JS for some tips on how to win, if you have the ability to comprehend his suggestions. Lastly, I think for you to come on here and personally judge someone's decision and trash their kid(s), you're the Cancerous, Selfish person, with delusional, unrealistic opinions about yourself. It's easy to keep the focus on you buddy, go sell some more snake oil and move on with your life. I'm sure you could of occupied the time spent on this web site with more important people in your life, opposed to the ones in the cloud. You went there, not us!

I am trying to figure out what your issue is here.
1. Consumer choose to take money to different store. Would you prefer they stay where ever and pay $4k + Travel + Hotel to watch their kids play. If you check the older boards they will tell you it's no fun for the kid just being on a top team and as a parent you want to enjoy watching them play

2. Every team has crazy parents. If the world was perfect and everyone would get along and that parent must know your kid in order to have that conversation. I can't see a stranger having this conversation with some random kid off the street so if you don't like the guy don't have him talk to your child period.

3. If that scenario you mentioned above happened with the coach I would say (RED FLAG) this happened with a random parent. How does that reflect on the team unless that person was speaking for the team.

I was at the tryout with my son but choose to go someplace else. They did say players earn playing time in close games. Just remember great players can't get looks on the bench or in 10-1 blow out games.

The 6-7 “top” kids on this team are on their third or fourth team in as many years. There’s a reason kids bounce around so much. Cancerous parents with an unrealistic opinion of their son’s ability and selfish play on the field.

Also, I would be very cautious of the “everyone is going to play equally” promise. As a new club, they’re going to need to win. That means shortening the bench in every close game.

Remember that before you cut a check.


I am trying to figure out what your issue is here.
1. Consumer choose to take money to different store. Would you prefer they stay where ever and pay $4k + Travel + Hotel to watch their kids play. If you check the older boards they will tell you it's no fun for the kid just being on a top team and as a parent you want to enjoy watching them play

2. Every team has crazy parents. If the world was perfect and everyone would get along and that parent must know your kid in order to have that conversation. I can't see a stranger having this conversation with some random kid off the street so if you don't like the guy don't have him talk to your child period.

3. If that scenario you mentioned above happened with the coach I would say (RED FLAG) this happened with a random parent. How does that reflect on the team unless that person was speaking for the team.

I was at the tryout with my son but choose to go someplace else. They did say players earn playing time in close games. Just remember great players can't get looks on the bench or in 10-1 blow out games.


It's a particular coach trashing kids. If you know the guy, its very easy to keep the focus on him. He opened that door. I think he's just envious on the accomplishments of JS. Jealousy!

Taking Bandits and Express our of the equation, are Igloo and S2S still top teams? If not, where did those players end up?

I heard that a new club called Turtles in Smithtown got a lot of the top club players to come. Don't know if they all know each other or that they all wanted a better experience. Don't know if S2S, Igloo, or True Blue can still stay up there with a lot of dilution now.

So many new teams; so many more options. I guess that’s a good thing, right?

It's great to see high talent spread out and parents understanding that their son doesn't need to play on the Bandits to enjoy the game.

Agree. 4K tuition without the add-ons. Traveling up and down the east cost when we have enough competition here on LI. Then throw in all the political BS, the groupie parents that ingest large quantities of protein, all which comes along with many of these so called top clubs, it's just sicking and you can have it!

True Blue??? Okay, compare the cost with one team in particular who was beat twice by TB. Should I go on naming another club?

TB is a good team, for sure. But they’re not in the conversation with the elite teams. That’s not a bad thing, it’s just the way it is. They’re an economical choice for the boys in that area and it’s great they they can put out a pretty competitive team. But the question is about the top clubs. Im interested to see how all the changes shake out with Igloo and S2S. Did any impact players leave? Or just bench players?

Anyone that thinks top players from Bandits or Express Haugen tried out for a team other than the team they were on last year is crazy. These will be the top 2 teams until they go to college.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

This is true, Igloo supposedly lost 8 players 6 were back ups that went to the Turtles and 2 were starters that went to Express. S2S lost there best player to Express also not sure if they lost anyone else. I do think after Bandits and Haugen there is a lot more parody in 2023, I don't think Igloo and S2S will be as dominate (IMHO). In the end who cares let the boys have fun get better and hopefully Lacrosse will help them get into a college. Good luck to all...

I want my son to get into college to play lacrosse and practice 40 hours per week, then graduate with a job as a part time club coach. I think it will only cost me about 250k. The 91, Express, and Igloo direction is the best option for me.

You do realize full rides for lax don’t really exist. 99.9% of kids that play lax will nothing with it after they graduate. If these kids truly live be the. Sport they should play because they love it and not because they think they will get a full ride or be some D1 lax coach somewhere. Where will you be when lax is over for good? Probably still walking around in your kids team gear saying “did you know my kid played in the WSYL when he was 13.”

Going to be a lot of unhappy parents on that team. Impossible that all those kids are getting to get the playing time their parents think they deserve, especially those kids who are so small physically they get thrown around like rag dolls. Glad to hear they finally brought the S2S kid (formerly Express B player) on. He deserves to be there, unlike some of the other kids on that team.

Both teams lost key players and are having trouble filling those spots. It is definitely not a good sign for both teams.

Sounds like a coach is still reeling from player departures. Trash those teams all you want— their records and coaches speak for themselves. And interesting those two teams didn’t hemmorage any players !

how many kids are on that roster now? i have seem them at tournaments and there seems to be a lot of kids standing on the side lines.

also seems like alot of clubs are now doing supplemental tryouts. Guess everyone is having issues getting kids to commit or come back, for whatever the reason.

I think it’s great that there are more clubs starting up out there.
The club owners/coaches don’t like it at all!!
I’ve heard them say “it waters down every team”.
What a bunch of BS!!
1-cost will go down eventually or stop getting increased.
2-To me watered down= more competitive teams
3- smaller rosters = more playing time for kids
4-makes the clubs that have been around for a long time not to take any player for granted knowing every year it is a new contract.The your lucky to be hear attitude needs to stop.What if a restaurant gave you the impression that your Lucky we let you eat here.Would you eat there again?
More clubs the better!everyone can find a home that’s good for them and get treated properly.This is coming from a dad that has a son that has been treated like gold for three years and tons of playing time.
It just kills me to see kids sit on the sideline and the parents are too scared to speak up because their worried about repercussions.

Ok daddy. Good disguise. Absolutely no one knows it’s you at all. You have convinced the world that your son is great. Awesome. And now we can safely assume this kids dad is trashing his future teammates playing ability and physical attributes. Welcome to the sidelines d bag. You are class act.

I don’t believe it’s the dad. I believe it's someonefeom his former team who has an axe grind with him. He is trying to make him look bad.

This is obviously the previous coach and owner who are crying the kid left. You were probably a [ChillLaxin] to the kid knowing your history.

I am not sure who on here has a beef with this kid or his dad, on the sidelines he did not seem any crazier than other dads on that team. Besides, he was Express B coach before so it's not like both sides don't know what they are getting. As for adding players, both Express and 91 Bandits added a bunch, for obvious reasons. This is really the last time to make the team as strong as they can, once the boys start high school the interest in jumping teams vanes greatly.

Also, this is the time the boys have started puberty and their growth is all over the place, some of the kids who were marginal players are suddenly getting bigger, stronger and faster, and much more dominant on the field as a result. And vice versa, as the development is all over the place. This seem to make injuries a lot more common, we have seen a lot more with my older son's team anyway. Some of the boys play JV sports at school etc. plus the tournament games are getting even more physical. Even this past year there was never a time any of the top teams had all their players available, someone was always hurt. So there is certainly good justification for healthy rosters numbers.

I am not sure who on here has a beef with this kid or his dad, on the sidelines he did not seem any crazier than other dads on that team.

This is really the last time to make the team as strong as they can, once the boys start high school the interest in jumping teams vanes greatly.

This particular dad brings this same drama wherever he goes. You just have to be a tad bit familiar with this forum over the years to see where he's been. Express is one of the only clubs willing to take him as they thrive on overbearing parent$.

Is this guy serious? Can the dad of this s2s kid be this deranged. He bashes 13 yo kids his son going to play with? A hole fo sho. Thank god your kid is coming to save these kids. How can we thank you for coming.






I don’t believe it’s the dad. I believe it's someonefeom his former team who has an axe grind with him. He is trying to make him look bad.

I heard people had issues with him when he was on the outlaws 3 or 4 years ago. Nothing has been said about him the past two years, and the kid could have stayed with S2S and play every minute and take any shot he wanted. Why are you guys so upset at him for going to a team where he will get limited minutes. It's starting to seem as though a lot of this is coming from the S2S crowd.

I heard that a new club called Turtles in Smithtown got a lot of the top club players to come. Don't know if they all know each other or that they all wanted a better experience. Don't know if S2S, Igloo, or True Blue can still stay up there with a lot of dilution now.

True Blue ??? Why are they mentioned in this conversation ?


True Blue??? Okay, compare the cost with one team in particular who was beat twice by TB. Should I go on naming another club?


TB is a good team, for sure. But they’re not in the conversation with the elite teams. That’s not a bad thing, it’s just the way it is. They’re an economical choice for the boys in that area and it’s great they they can put out a pretty competitive team. But the question is about the top clubs. Im interested to see how all the changes shake out with Igloo and S2S. Did any impact players leave? Or just bench players?


S2S lost top middie, top defense, two attack players(one starter, one back up). All contributors. Lost other 3rd line players. Top players went to Express, both 2024 & 2023 teams. It will be hard to fill the production lost.

No skin in this game but why would you go back to Express when they said your kid wasn’t good enough to be on their A team? S2S gave him a shot and he got to play. Kind of a slap in the face to ditch S2S and go back to Espresso who now thinks you are worthy.

S2s did not lose top middie. Lost one middie but he was number 5 I in scoring and only 50% in faceoffs, so all good at s2s. No big losses. All the big scorers are still here.

This comment could have only came from someone at S2S. Give it a rest already guys the kid made a choice. What happen to wishing someone best of luck in whatever they decide to do. I am sure he still has friends on the team and wishes them best of luck.

Copied and pasted this from another thread.
This says it all.


In the end you do this because your kid loves to play.
- dont do it for the scholarships. You are better off not doing it then, saving that money, and you would end up having more money for your kid for college.
- dont do it if your kid is not being played. Thats just ridiculous. What is he practicing for. You practice so you will play well in your games. If he is not being played, its a waste. Pick a different team.
- dont do it because your kid wants to be on the top team. You are sending the wrong message to your kid. Being part of somerhing in name only, but not contributing to it by playing in the game, means he really earned nothing.
- dont do it just because you want to tell others your kid is on the top team. Your actually harming your kids self esteem, as he continues to watch others play instead of him.
- dont force your kid to play just to relive your dreams in your youth. Your child needs to choose their own path. That is the only way they will be successful and happy. That should be your goal.

If your kid enjoys lacrosse, pick a team where
- he is played. He doesnt have to be a starter. But he needs to play a decent amount of time in games.
- there is a team environment where there may not be equal playing time for all, but every player gets reasonable playing time.
- there is one team per age group. Or at least your on the top team. All the second teams are money grabs. Its way to difficult for organizations to pull in enough talent at tryouts to field 2 teams in an age group. (And everyone at tryouts wont accept). You are better playing for another club.
- Dont be a sucker paying ridiculous figures. Figure out what they are really giving you for your money. Is it really worth it? Why did tuition go up 25%? Certainly costs didnt increase that much in a year.
- Talk to people who you know or that friends know play for or played for that organization to get a better picture. Get the inside scoop.
- make a list of questions. And call and talk to the coaches before accepting an offer. If they wont talk to you, or give you nonsense answers, then run. It can only get worse from there.
- make sure the organization is investing in proper coaches for your team. Not just one head coach and the rest volunteer daddy coaches getting a free ride for their kid.

Once on your team
- dont switch mid season. It does nothing but hurt your kids image when he tries out for other clubs. And teaches your kid the wrong lesson about following through with his commitment to his team.
- make sure your kid enjoys playing for the team when deciding to try out next season.
- if you find during the season the organization does not follow through with what they promised, then walk after the end of the season. Find another team. Otherwise it will only get worse.
- practice with your kid. And make sure your kid understands practicing daily at home is the only way he will get better.
- when at tournaments enjoy the game. Dont be crazy on the sidelines shouting. Let the coaches do the coaching.
- dont let winning be everything. In the end it should be whether your kid is enjoying thenselves, and developing as a player. You certainly dont want to lose all the time. But you also dont want to win at any cost.

Have a great season

Or weasel your way into the club as head coach or assistant coach and make sure to start your son and play him over others to the team’s detriment, do the same for the sons of your buddies, and keep the director’s fooled that you are doing your best for the team.

This quote is so true. There were a lot of kids who could not play another sport this summer because 2023 is the year. Year for what? The colleges coaches are not looking at them but the schedule was unbelievable and the only one that gained something out of this was the club directors. Wake up parents playing on a club team is now the new it item and the snake oil sales men/club directors are lined up to cash in.

I don’t believe it’s the dad. I believe it's someonefeom his former team who has an axe grind with him. He is trying to make him look bad.



I agree with the last post. The dad of the player that moved from S2S to Express Haugen, does not waste his time on this forum, (I'm not sure why I do! Why is the the 2023 forum the most active and disfunctional on the website?). When his son played on S2S with my son, I never saw any evidence of him bragging about his son, in fact he was one of the most reserved parents on the sideline and in the tent between games. He helped the main coaches during practices, and was great with the boys on the team. He would definitely not run down other kids. He reached out to me to tell me his son was leaving the team, because he wanted to play with his best friend, who is the goalie on Express Haugen. I know that probably seems far fetched for most of you, but at the end of the day, these boys are still only 13 (unless your talking about MD. or MA.) and want to play with their buddies.

- dont do it just because you want to tell others your kid is on the top team. Your actually harming your kids self esteem, as he continues to watch others play instead of him.
- dont force your kid to play just to relive your dreams in your youth. Your child needs to choose their own path. That is the only way they will be successful and happy. That should be your goal.

If your kid enjoys lacrosse, pick a team where
- he is played. He doesnt have to be a starter. But he needs to play a decent amount of time in games.
- there is a team environment where there may not be equal playing time for all, but every player gets reasonable playing time.
- there is one team per age group. Or at least your on the top team. All the second teams are money grabs. Its way to difficult for organizations to pull in enough talent at tryouts to field 2 teams in an age group. (And everyone at tryouts wont accept). You are better playing for another club.
- Dont be a sucker paying ridiculous figures. Figure out what they are really giving you for your money. Is it really worth it? Why did tuition go up 25%? Certainly costs didnt increase that much in a year.
- Talk to people who you know or that friends know play for or played for that organization to get a better picture. Get the inside scoop.
- make a list of questions. And call and talk to the coaches before accepting an offer. If they wont talk to you, or give you nonsense answers, then run. It can only get worse from there.
- make sure the organization is investing in proper coaches for your team. Not just one head coach and the rest volunteer daddy coaches getting a free ride for their kid.

Once on your team
- dont switch mid season. It does nothing but hurt your kids image when he tries out for other clubs. And teaches your kid the wrong lesson about following through with his commitment to his team.
- make sure your kid enjoys playing for the team when deciding to try out next season.
- if you find during the season the organization does not follow through with what they promised, then walk after the end of the season. Find another team. Otherwise it will only get worse.
- practice with your kid. And make sure your kid understands practicing daily at home is the only way he will get better.
- when at tournaments enjoy the game. Dont be crazy on the sidelines shouting. Let the coaches do the coaching.
- dont let winning be everything. In the end it should be whether your kid is enjoying thenselves, and developing as a player. You certainly dont want to lose all the time. But you also dont want to win at any cost.

Have a great season


Or weasel your way into the club as head coach or assistant coach and make sure to start your son and play him over others to the team’s detriment, do the same for the sons of your buddies, and keep the director’s fooled that you are doing your best for the team.


The directors are not fools. They allow and endorse what that daddy coach is doing.
Leave that organization at the end if the season if that happens. It will only get worse.

Who are these kids and who are their parents? Spallina went on the record saying he wants the kids on his team to play other sports to develop, and they do play football, wrestle, etc. Kids on other top team do as well, be it football, soccer, hockey or basketball. Much easier now that the kids are old enough for MS or even JV sports at school. Plus, in the summer, who does not want to swim, surf etc? What do your kids do besides lacrosse, just play Fortnite?

This quote is so true. There were a lot of kids who could not play another sport this summer because 2023 is the year. Year for what? The colleges coaches are not looking at them but the schedule was unbelievable and the only one that gained something out of this was the club directors. Wake up parents playing on a club team is now the new it item and the snake oil sales men/club directors are lined up to cash in.


Talk to your kid. Make sure your kid is happy on a team where he cant pkay other sports.
If not, there are other teams he can look at where he can pkay lacrosse, but also do other team spots.
If you talk to college coaches you will find they want the kids to have played multiple sports.

A lot of extra kids on express this year. 9 attack 12 middies 7 d and 2 goalies. Some new parents are know it all blow hard bores who are sure their kids are the best. Should be an interesting year .


Going to be a lot of unhappy parents on that team. Impossible that all those kids are getting to get the playing time their parents think they deserve, especially those kids who are so small physically they get thrown around like rag dolls. Glad to hear they finally brought the S2S kid (formerly Express B player) on. He deserves to be there, unlike some of the other kids on that team.


Is this guy serious? Can the dad of this s2s kid be this deranged. He bashes 13 yo kids his son going to play with? A hole fo sho. Thank god your kid is coming to save these kids. How can we thank you for coming.

Obviously this is the New dad (S2S) "oh he doesnt waste his time on this forum" WE KNOW IT IS YOU lolol

What are you talking about. How can the kids seriously play other sports when they are at a tournament every weekend. Some kids are good enough to play more than CYO basketball or summer roller hockey. When do those kids that Spallina encourage to play other sports get to do that. Let's not forget how often the bandits practice. When do these kids get to play that other sport you speak of? Please don't kid yourself.

Most play for their schools, which yields minimal conflicts because the fall football/soccer season just started, and lax has been done for a month. Most of the games are during the week, and all practices are, before or right after school. We have some boys on our team that do another sport semi-seriously outside of school still as well, and they do miss fall tournaments sometimes for another sport, and coaches seem fine with it. But for most, school sports are great because they are competitive enough but not insane at this age and you get to play with and in front of your friends.

No you won't, this dad was clearly a fool to try to fit in to begin with. But you are still stuck with the core group of malcontent parents for whom nothing is ever good enough. They were ranting on here about the team long before this kid/dad joined. A friend whose son plays on S2S told me a while ago when we discussed the BOTC comments after a tournament that the coach begged the parents to stop airing team's dirty laundry on BOTC and talk to him directly. How crazy is that? Alas now that they succeeded in pushing him out inmates are running the asylum and the new coach will have his hands full. You'd be much better off wishing good luck to everyone who left and move on with the new team, and listen to DK's words as a parting gift - talk to people directly and stop posting trash on BOTC. Everyone ends up looking terrible in the end, and it does not make anyone want to join your team either.

The funniest thing is that there are about 15 “friends” that have posted long intimate soliloquies about this guy’s lacrosse issues on a website. They are clearly obsessed with him and have a lot of free time. Does Lebron’s father have obssed fans that will post like this? Cue the “father is being set up” post from one of his “friends”

I love this statement.... broke the internet


And make the MLL have no Benifits play in front of 600 people in college and 2,000 In MLL make $7,660 a year and do $45 clinics . Sign me up how much for 91 express igloo and whatever else money grab out there for $4k and more with traveling hotels meals etc . Sign me up !!! Oh 10k a year for college I’m only getting because 12.6 scholarships for my tram with 50 man roster .


I clicked on the wrong 2023 forum and saw this post. This is such a true statement. Parents need to get a clue. Lacrosse is a business that is making a ton of money for Club Owners! I look at half the college graduates and they are making pennies out of college living like they are still In college. If your son is not having fun playing Lacrosse at this age something is wrong. If your son has to give up other sports and events to play Middle School lacrosse...something is wrong. As a parent you should not allow a coach or owner of a club dictate what your son can and cannot do. Coaches need to be held accountable for their teams. I think we are seeing more and more of these things in the news about awful coaches. If we allow this treatment of our children now then they will allow worse treatment from horrible coaches for a 5 minute slot of playing time. Sorry for the rant but I see this all over the Maryland forum and I find it infuriating!

The worst is when you get assigned a high school coach as your head coach for your club team, and he never shows up. $3,000 flushed down the drain.

You are spot on. The only people that are emotionally invested in our children are Us! additionally, as parents we must be be aware of the example we set for our kids. It's fine to have kids play with their friends, but when things become stale so to speak you must know when to move on, and allow your son to make new friends in other places (teams). Just remember, one size doesn't fit all. Lastly, coaches/organizations are in it for one thing, the money and themselves. Once you are aware of this, use these coaches/organizations to get the most out of them for yourself, don't become emotionally attached to any coach or team. It's unfortunate as parents we have to treat travel lacrosse as a business, but once you realize how the game is played in the realm of travel lacrosse, you will better able to protect you kid and pocket book.

Teams are more diluted now. I think Warriors, Express B, Igloo B, and Empire will dominate the A. TB will move up to AA. The AA division has been watered down such as Igloo, Express, and S2S. Rebels will dominate the B.

Wow. That is a big jump - going from a B team to a AA team. TB must have added quite a few quality players.

Warriors, it was what it was, and it is what it is. Keep paying those prices. Next year you'll be up to or beyond $4500.00, easy. If you give them your money, they will be happy to take it...

I love this statement.... broke the internet


I want my son to play lacrosse be a part of a great community. I want him to learn how to compete, learn how to win, how to lose, how to get better, how the world isnt fair, how to manage his nerves, how to set goals and how to get all the benefits competitive sports bring to a child's development. I want to travel with him and my family to tournaments and spend time with friends. I want him to build his network and have a great HS experience. Its sure beats playing fortnite and the money we spend on piano lessons and tutors. I AM investing in my child's future and it is not so he can get to MLL.

If you dont think a kid that can juggle a 40 hour practice week and the demands of playing a college sport isnt being prepared for life then I think you're really more concerned about your DNA not being able to close the gap on what your son can do.....oh yea and the Lax network for finding a job when coming out of a good school is another great benefit.

Lacrosse and the community are worth the investment, just know why you're doing and who you're doing it with.

Let's not get too out of hand here... these kids are not getting great jobs and into medical school, law school and business school because they played on Team 91 or Outlaws... they are getting into these roles because they grew up in predominantly upper middle class professional households where parents impressed upon their kids the benefits of sports, education, and extracurricular activities (i am sure genes play a role as well).

Look... to play any sport at a high level costs money today. There are very few parks to head down to on LI to just go play football, baseball, soccer or basketball pickup. Everything has a cost today. I 10000% agree with your Fortnite and Piano lessons statement. You can throw Kumon into that bucket as well.

But, to be fair - i do see plenty of former LAX stars working as assistant coaches etc. Some have made big businesses out of it... but those are the exception.

PS... i am one of the suckers that pays big $$ to multiple sports for their travel leagues.

Everyone is so excited when you see that a HS coach is coaching your club team. Honestly I’ve heard nothing but horror stories about this. Especially at the younger ages. Coach main focus is his HS team. NOT club team. Rarely there during spring practices if at all. Be careful what you wish for.

I am curious exactly how much these assistant coaches make per year ? And when they move up and become head coach— how much do they make then? Not sarcastic just curious if it’s enough that they can buy a house and support a family with that ?

It really depends, I think in this scenario it does really help if his son is on the team. Spallina coaches a college team plus a MLL team and still manages to do great job with the bandits, so coaching a local HS team with minimal travel should be totally doable. And even if you don't have a kid on the team it can work. Chan coached St. Anthony's JV in addition to his travel team/s for years (does he still?) and made it work. Besides, nobody can make decent living just coaching travel lacrosse, all these coaches have real jobs to pay their bills, most have nothing to do with lacrosse at all. And those jobs get in a way from time to time, so having competent assistants who can run a good practice or coach a tournament is a key.

Spallina coaches a college team plus a MLL team and still manages to do great job with the bandits, so coaching a local HS team with minimal travel should be totally doable. And even if you don't have a kid on the team it can work. Chan coached St. Anthony's JV in addition to his travel team/s for years (does he still?) and made it work. Besides, nobody can make decent living just coaching travel lacrosse, all these coaches have real jobs to pay their bills, most have nothing to do with lacrosse at all. And those jobs get in a way from time to time, so having competent assistants who can run a good practice or coach a tournament is a key.


over rated. Having a HS varsity coach stinks. Go ahead and pay your $3,500 to have the coach not even know what your son's name is.

Look... to play any sport at a high level costs money today. There are very few parks to head down to on LI to just go play football, baseball, soccer or basketball pickup. Everything has a cost today. I 10000% agree with your Fortnite and Piano lessons statement. You can throw Kumon into that bucket as well.

But, to be fair - i do see plenty of former LAX stars working as assistant coaches etc. Some have made big businesses out of it... but those are the exception.

PS... i am one of the suckers that pays big $$ to multiple sports for their travel leagues.

Listen, it's expensive to live here. I get that...Pump It Up and After School are grossly over priced as well. But, at the end of the day I do believe that athletics and being part of a team are beneficial to youth development. I just do not blow smoke up my butt trying to convince myself this "is an investment in my kid's future"... and if that was the case, I would say spend the money on swim lessons where you can earn a living over the summer as a lifeguard.

There is limited future earning derived from this sport. Where are the best college players from last season working this year?

Swim lessons, lifeguard. Totally agree. As lax parents we are missing the boat concerning club lax. Think about this, kid get a summer lifeguard job at one of the state parks, graduates college and lands a full time state job where his time counts towards his retirement.
Parents stop paying outrageous prices on youth travel lax!

There is honestly not. Your kid better have a lot more goung on from the neck up if he wants to be successful in life. Lacrosse will not help that much. Your kid should be playing because he loves to play and wants to play this much. For that reason and no other.

You really should go right down the line and check the LinkedIn profile of the graduates. It’s actually really disappointing where people end up. I’m not knocking the sport - I live and love it. But, I’m not a fool. I’ve paid my $$ and I realize where it goes. I don’t get suckered into that investment in future nonsense.

Travel lacrosse is a vehicle adults use to dupe other adults out of their hard earned money. Prices will continue to rise until parents say enough is enough. The clubs/coaches are the dealers and the parents are their submissive addicts, lacrosse crack is hard to put down. But, stop paying these crazy high prices for youth travel lacrosse.

Why wouldn't they be, with degrees from those schools? Most people I know, if hellbent on kids playing in college at all, are just hoping it will be the hook that will get their son into the competitive college they would not get in otherwise. They are not looking for scholarships, nor to make living playing lacrosse post-college. They'll go to top colleges (hopefully) and get good jobs in finance etc. And may coach their kids' PAL team one day, or not depending on how demanding their real job is. Everyone knows that lacrosse is not like football/basketball/baseball where you can actually make a good living playing professionally, though of course few make it that far.

A good job in finance, what does that consist of, cashier position at PJ Sports upon graduating from a top college? Get a grip people, the amount of money some of us pay into travel lacrosse before/if our kids go off to college is insane. don't get caught up in the hype these big clubs are selling, find a good value club with a good coach where your kids plays. Me personally, if my kid is recruited and decides he want to play lacrosse in college, I will not pay, that's on him.

Practices are around the corner and I am looking forward to the Fall with the Fall Tournaments. There will be rankings on here so I want to see how they will rank to different respective clubs & if the different tournaments will play a role into them but one thing I always notice is that a lot of the teams play at the same events and against a lot of the same teams.

You don’t hate saying that, You’re just a miserable person. Since your attacking the parents, most likely were a constant complainer that was shown the door. Guess you’re the only failure so far.

Not true.


there are several outlaw kids on the team

Where did the 3 good ones go?


One went to F$G

Empire lost all of their starting "A" team players at end of season. Most/all moved on. Remaining team is players from B team and few others from tryouts. Team will be a B/C team at best.

Well, I'm sure they will have nice uniforms since they are backed by Lacrosse Unlimited, but I can't imagine them being highly competitive. They have a few average kids that came from other teams (Empire, Igloo, Warriors, etc...)that left because they didn't play. I think they will be OK, but saying they'll compete with everyone but Express and Bandits is the kind of statement that makes people want to put you in your place. Just play and keep the talking down. At least wait till you play a game. What tournaments will they be playing this fall?

Who said anything about competing against Express and Bandits??
If you can read, I said they will open some eyes this year. YES they will be competitive. Unless you know the kids/parents personally, how can you say the kids are average?? Changing teams doesn't equate to being mediocre. Maybe some, after the WSYL were tired of the BS of their team and organization. Yes, every team has it but, the kids are solid at every position.
Yes, it is early to speculate, but the foundation is solid.

Almost every kid on the turtles has been on a different team each year or so.Not saying they will crumble but the coaches have their work cut out for them.
Most of those parents by the end of the year won’t be happy with something and will be looking to move AGAIN where the grass is greener.lol
Good luck to the kids and coaches!

Coach, you're a fake. Just get over your ego. Before tryouts you and your over baked leather skinned side kick mom attempted to convince several of the families you are trashing to come play for you. Luckily, they turned you down.Families are free to go where ever they feel necessary, and you have no control over it. Maybe you should sped more time focusing on your team as a whole, rather than a few favorites. The parents that left, saw right through your and your little minion side kicks B.S. Remember kids don't fail adults, adults fail kids.

Wow. Someone sounds bitter!! That's not a good look.

I only know a few of the kids that went to Turtles. None are bad players, FYI. None are standouts though, which is why they left their old teams and opted for a fresh start. I don't blame the parents at all. Travel lax has become insanely expensive. To be on a team and watch your son ride the bench, or not play as much as others, is unacceptable. With so many options available, why wouldn't it make sense to find a team where you think your son will play?

The notion that you need to have him on a top club or he won't be noticed is antiquated. Showcases are a scam. Many kids on top teams won't go to D1 schools. This is the reality. The top half on each of the top few clubs may play at a ranked D1 school, but most won't. Showcases have become money grabs where 120 coaches come to watch 5-10 specific players and don't care about the rest. Trust me, my oldest is graduating this year. I've been through it first hand. The showcases are not the avenue that you need to get noticed.

Everyone needs to relax with the "my team is better than yours" bulls@#t. None of it matters. Kids don't get better on the bench. Find a team where he'll play and keep this infantile trash talk and comparisons out of the equation. It's your son on the field, not you. Let him enjoy the ride.

Yes and your not going. They hold onto your check for a few weeks hoping to get there main list to show. If they want you it gets deposited right away. If it gets deposited weeks after your “invite” your filling a hole. Read the rules, says you were invited to apply, not attend.

Showtime replies on select clubs to pass along names, effectively holding slots for them. Then they cobble together the rest. Makes sense. No way to screen kids without vetted club involvement.

Dude you can’t have it both ways. They are either the outlaws rebranded, thus same parents. Or they are parents who move from team to team every year. But anyways, your post shows how ignorant and uninformed you are. Did you ever think all the people bashing the Rebels are the Miscontented parents ........the more you know.........

Ducks are R$SH.
East Coast Elite isDynamics new team, after Ducks broke away.
Rebels of course will be there. They are owned by blatant.

Ducks are R$SH.
East Coast Elite isDynamics new team, after Ducks broke away.
Rebels of course will be there. They are owned by blatant.


Ducks are East Coast Elite, with the exception of 2023 and 2025. Those coaches started “The Team that Sings Tom Sawyer”. I’m not sure they even have teams at the other age groups. Why are they not allowed to be mentioned on here???

how can they not come (Rebels) doesn't Blatant own them.


That’s why I said I assumed they were in. But it’s not a Blatant tourney, it’s a Legacy tourney.

East Coast Elite does not have a 2023 team. Therefore you don't know anything.

I know you're a useless chump.

There are a few more teams locked in. The weather looks good and it should be a great day of early season lax. Unless that grumpy [ChillLaxin] from the prior post shows up. His kid must play for the Turtles and hes pissed they're not doing fall tourneys.

91 Spartans vs 91 Warriors would be a great matchup in the 2023 division. All these parents wrote their $4000 checks now lets see who has the better team

Igloo A and B would be a better matchup after the mass exodus from their A team. That's what happens when you take people's money and leave their kids on the bench. Serves them right. And from what I hear, both Igloo teams are better than S2S. I guess we're back to Bandits and Express, then probably Turtles and then everyone else.

This is so funny! The only people who talk smack about clubs are the ones whose kid got cut from the team or left because he didn’t touch the field. I wonder how hard it would be to figure out who is talking? How many players got cut from or left Igloo A because they didn’t play?? A few? What about Warriors? One or two? Outlaws? A couple? S2S? 3 kids? I’m sure it’s not hard to figure out who the b$tches are. Forgive me for stating the obvious, but I’m 100% sure of the following: Igloo A is better than Igloo B, S2S will once again field a highly competitive team, Warriors are better than Spartans, and hopefully everyone that left teams for greener pastures found them.

Makes perfect sense. Your son wasn't good enough to play meaningful minutes, you left, and now you talk smack about the old club whenever possible.

Igloo A will be fine, Rebels/Outlaws will still stink, Turtles will be good, Empire A/B will stink balls, True Blue will continue to out drink everyone and at least 2 of 3 91 teams will be good. Oh yeah, legacy will stink again this year..

Warriors were very similar to last year. They looked a bit bigger. Not sure about new kids.
Outlaws struggled. Don’t know which team that was from last year, but they had a difficult day.
The Express team is Roar from last year. Absorbed by Express. They played well for a team consisting of many kids from a single team.

Some good games. Some not as good. But overall, a fun day of fall lacrosse.

Express was a new team put together. Looks like they all moved from another team based on all the matching helmets. They played well, very aggressive. Very good middies, huge falloff when first come off.

91 always a good product, the most organized and beatable when everyone else catches up. They have been together long time so offense clicked early.

LI rebels is a new team. Some good players and will give you a good game early before ruining out of steam. Excellent goalie.

Outlaws were worst team there. They have a lot of work to do. Didn’t look strong at any position.

Rebels were old outlaws. Looked much of the same. Not really any offensive threats. Looked sloppy for a team that has been together under another name.

Legacy was strong until they played a real team and then got manhandled. Looks like they are still rebuilding. Had a big attack, but can’t get them the ball.

And three shots hit the post.
5-1 was the score.

Not sure what a hammerhead is, but you “almost won every faceoff”. What does that mean, so you lost more than you won? You still lost 5-1, correct? You hit 3 post, so the ball didn’t go in right, so you still lost 5-1, correct? Even if the three went in, you still Lose 5-4, correct?

I willl give credit where it is due. You almost won every faceoff and hit three post, way to go. You know what they say offense wins games, defense wins championships and hitting 3 post wins a donut. . But I’m the hammerhead.

No, but BOTC does not allow you to name one of the teams and defaults it to rebels. The team is LI Rupoop. They were the Ducks last year but the coaches split off on their own to form a new club.

The brackets were pretty limited. Two jersey teams, Warriors, a few Express North teams, Express Hedstom, Force, Hitmen and a team made up of 22’s and 23’s from a bunch of other travel teams (Looked like Igloo, Turtles, Bandits, fl$, Express and possibly others). The mixed team looked very good. Warriors did, too. Those two were a step above the rest, but a lot of good games played. Great weather for lax too.

Was that the Sachem team? Those clowns are up to their old tricks again? If it was the same guys from a few years ago, they grab kids from all over the place and ever travel team (and apparently don’t care about what grade they are in) and call themselves Sachem. What a joke. I thought we were rid of those weasels already. Did they really bring in older kids? Or is that exaggerated? It wouldn’t surprise me at all if they did. That should get them blackballed from all tourneys.

The parents are fine (with a few exceptions), but the coaches are just terrible. They’ve been teaching kids for years that it ok to cheat. What kind of role models are they? Cheating to win is terrible, but cheating and still losing is laughable! Someone should tell that skinny coach that he’s in his 50’s, he should stop trying to dress like he’s in his 20’s. It makes him look like a creepy pedofile.

What happened to the Blatant tournament? That used to bring in all the heavyweights. But it looks like it’s TB’s tournament to lose. What are Express, Igloo, Bandits and S2S doing this fall? Haven’t heard much. Out of state?

oh someone sounds a little butt hurt!! and by the way learn to spell, especially if you are going to insult people on an open forum. The only people who have something to say about the team or the coaches are the ones who aren't asked to play with them, which I bet you are quite familiar with.

The team should be blackballed because they brought in older kids to play against younger kids. That’s all. And it is a valid reason. One of the coaches has a 2023 on 91 and a 2022. His older son and one of his 2022 teammates from FL$ played in the tournament for “Sachem”. They didn’t even really try to hide it.

You can check out the Fall Brawl at Hecksher Park. It's in November. I think it's the Friday after Thanksgiving so it may be cold, but there have been town teams in it in the past.

man you guys post some crazy responses, but pal this takes the cake on creep level. Your concern over what another grown man wears at a youth lacrosse tournament? C-R-E-E-P-Y.
I don't even remember what I was wearing that day, and most certainly don't remember the attire of an opposing coach.
You sound kinda obsessed, again creepy.

Why are we giving this Sachem group attention again? It was old 2 years ago. It was old 2 days ago. They cheat. Yada yada yada. My guess is that we don’t see them again anytime soon.

Next up is Blatant. Who’s the front runner? True Blue or 2-Way? Or do Rebels surprise?

Rebels are new. 2Way has holdbacks and has been around awhile. I take 2Way over Outlaws Rebels.

I think all of these, so called best LI teams should all play in a double elimination tournament and see who is the best. No excuses....just pure bragging rights for the year.

Look through this board occasionally my son is a 2023 average player on an average team, his main sport is ice hockey. My older son is a junior starter at University of Penn. Do you want to continue the conversation?

Bandits, S2S, Express, Warriors, Leading Edge Elite, Primetime. I don’t care who plays who, that’s the best group of teams playing at any tournament this fall.

I agree, that’s a very good group of teams. The talent level down at the North American Fall Invitational will Ben pretty good as well. BBL, Blue Star, DC Express ( which is Bethesda Lacrosse Club once they enter 8 grade) , Express North, Juiced Cherries, NH Tomahawks, Prime Time, Legacy, South Shore (NJ), and Sweetlax Upstate. No Bandits or Haugen who are top of the food chain, but a solid line up.

This is a LI Forum. Unfortunately, there is only one player from LI that is a Junior on UPenn that started any games last season. And, he doesn't have a 2023 brother.

And Sat at Lehigh has Preds, Edge, Tristate (NJ), Mesa Fresh, BBL. Thats a solid batch.

If you want to put it that way, looks like S2S only beat Warriors by 3, so they are closer to them than they are to Bandits. They’re all good teams, but let’s keep it in perspective S2S dad.

Who said they are trying to be the Bandits? They have existed a shorter time than any of these teams and made it to Denver. The are better than the Warriors who have been around awhile yet nobody is saying that team is going down. They could play lesser tourneys but then you would all cry foul that they are beating up teams in those A brackets. They are better than most of the teams at this age bracket.

All those same players, playing together for years, same coach, a goalie goal, and only win by 2! Oh yeah, 3, the one that went through the net no one had the integrity to admit until after the game...

Amazing how much hatred people have for S2S. They should play in lesser tourneys so you can all come back and cry that they are beating teams by 10 or more. Enjoy the games. It is almost over for most. Kudos to the Express goalie. My son is a Goalie and that is always his dream play! Sounds like it was an exciting game.

There is no hatred with the boys of S2S. I just don't think people like DK. Glad he's not coaching 8th grade.

Poor boys are being ridiculed by adults and made fun of by kids. But that might get that huge quarter ride to a D1 school. Well worth it.

Exactly. The re-class talk usually ignores the social impact on a kid. Of course he is mocked, viewed as a dummy by everyone. No one says it to the parents face but its a fog that hangs around the kid. That impact much greater than upside of beating up on younger kids for sports glory.

Its really too bad the debate isnt about too many kids playing up. Thats what families should aspire to. Research shows kids who play and work and socialize with older kids elevate themselves and are strivers. Kids held back act dumb and become dumber to fit in. The competitive dads see youth sports stars not what their kid will become as a man.

^^^^^^^^^^^^

I don't ever get involved in the holdback debate because honestly its just an old debate that will never change. My son is 13 and will be 14 in April I don't mind him playing against holdbacks it makes him try harder and want to beat them because they are older, just my opinion. However I do like the above post, makes a lot of sense.

90+1 keeping it classy. Inflating the scores from today. Wolfpack vs. S2S was only 10-1 not 20-0 they put into tourney machine. Wonder if they over inflated their game against the Machine as well. Wolfpack is a good team you don’t need to over inflate the scores!

It is true two Smash players reclassed. But neither have moved down to the Bandits they have elected to stay on Smash both teams coached by JS No Florida boys there at the tournaments either. Think you need a better source

What tournament is this?

Elite Fall Invitational. Three games and done no playoffs no finals! "INVITATIONAL" Guess someone did not get the invite! BOTTOMFEEDER!



Look through this board occasionally my son is a 2023 average player on an average team, his main sport is ice hockey. My older son is a junior starter at University of Penn. Do you want to continue the conversation?

I have a kid on the S2S team and never tried to say he is a rockstar. Middle of the road player who loves the game. His team is brand new. They changed up the roster this year and this was their first tournament. They played hard against the Wolfpack and were the only team to score on them. I was proud they didn’t give up. Maybe the Wolfpack parents and kids should use it as an example. Our parents complimented the other team and our kids gave it their all regardless. Listening to the Pack parents is an embarrassment. Talking crap about the team when they had no idea was sitting next to them. Classy. If they think they are so great and we aren’t worth playing then go play the teams in our age group that you think count. May seem pathetic to you to lose to a team a year younger but competition is what it is and these kids didn’t give up.

It was not S2S A team that they beat. In fact every team at this tournament was a B or C team that are doormats at every tournament. Wolfpack are a good team and should not have played in this tournament. It was not a good challenge for them. Most 2024 A teams would have beaten on all these teams.

I agree they were a great team and will probably be a force at WSYL, but why play in this tournament? What exactly did they accomplish it was a B tournament so what it was a year older if not the same level. If they are such hotshots they should go play in a 2023 AA tournament then let's see how well they do.

It is what it is. Sometimes it hurts when you rip the bandaid off. This was a good tournament for those team and the Wolfpack ruined for them all. The point is correct, put any A team in the bracket, 2023 or 2024, and those teams get beat pretty badly.

Where was the score overinflated? And why are you making such a big deal about the score. Whether they won by 10, 20 or 30 it doesn’t matter. It could have been any score the pack wanted to make it. A few goals is completely inconsequential, so relax. In the end, you’re right. The pack should not have been there. Our understanding was that this was an A tourney. We expected VERY good competition. That obviously didn’t happen. Something definitely went wrong somewhere. Believe me, we know we have a very good team and we are looking for challenges to get better. Tourneys like that don’t help us at all, in fact if anything they hurt the team.

Better check your stat sheet fact boy, because 99% of the goals were assisted, meaning there still are no stars on Wolfpack. None. Everyone is a threat. Our boys move the ball and beat you as a well oiled, completely self-less, TEAM.

Your comment shows that you are just another jealous Pack hater, who was not even at the game yesterday. If you were, you would have known that there were no WP standouts. But there never is with WP. Now you know our secret.

That’s a very nice feel good pep talk you just gave us, but you may want to save it next time, for when it applies. You got a little carried away, there dad.

Almost every kid on all the teams “gave up” well before the end of all the games. Most gave up after a few minutes. Not trying to stir the pot, but let’s try to keep it real here.

And if you are referring to the frustrated cheap shot artist, I don’t consider that admirable behavior and I certainly wouldn’t condone it by referring to it as “not giving up.”

I can only talk to my sons game as I didn’t see the others, but the score for the S2S game was 10-1 not 20-0 as posted. It may not matter to your rockstars but it matters to a team that just played their 3rd game together as a team. Your coaches knew who you were playing. They could have pulled you out. Sorry that playing our kids hurt your teams. [ChillLaxin].

Ok, this is one big lie. We all have been at this for along time. Your coach and director knew what teams were going to be there for some time, you yourself knew for a few days. “The pack”, lol, had sole time to dropout. Organizers contact the coaches to review brackets and scheduling from a week to two weeks before. The schedule comes out three to four days before. YOU WERE NOT SURPRISED BY ANYTHING WHEN YOU GOT THERE. You enter tourneys all the time that don’t help you. You only play up in B and C tournaments.

“Every goal was assisted”. That your claim to fame. What does that actually mean. The opposite is every goal was scored with a player stealing the ball, running down the feild and scoring without passing. Did you think that post out. Come on bro, you have a good team, but you should be the spokeswolf.

You may want to check who you are playing next week. Will be better than this week but I am sure not up to your standards. Play the Bandits. They are in next week’s tourney.

They love to pump their chests about playing up, but how many holdbacks are on that team? They were all bigger than the 8th graders they were playing. You're not playing up if you're the same age.

Re: Boys 2023-8th Grade Fall 2018/Summer 2019 - 11/12/18 06:29 PM

Ok, have to jump in here. As I was at the tournament. First things first. The wolfpack was and is a good team. But they really did nothing for themselves. Why show up to a tournament thats not even competitive. Shame on the tournament directors for allowing it. Really if the boys are going to play up the rules should be played as the game was designed. I have never seen so many flags. This is a contact sport and should be played as such.

I didn't have travel lacrosse (shows my age) but played some hockey and we couldn't play in a non "a" tournament with our team we were only allowed 3 "a" players for each team regardless of the age group playing up. Something for the directors to think about. But as long as we keep forking over the money then they wont care.

Everyone needs to relax here. Its really not that big of deal who beat who by what. As these are 13-14 year olds. Its fall ball first off. Enjoy your kids cause they can play and they are healthy to run around. Listen 99% of these boys aren't going to play in college. Does that make them "doormats" I don't think so. So you should really watch what you say as it only take 1 injury to your kids to put him on a doormat team. These kids take their opinions from us. We treat the other team like door mats then they will also. Then when another kids responds to that, everyone is shocked.

So remember this is a game, play it for fun. Last I looked we all are paying for our kids to play. Thinking about that. Some of you are paying 4000-5000 a year. IF they are good they will be good no matter what the score was in 8th grade "B" tournament. I know kids who don't play travel but yet go division 1. So doormat dad get a life. go back to your age group. as if we could play full contact maybe the game would be different.

Just my opinion

Stop the BS. The WP had no idea this tourney would be a walk through. This team has and always will seek out competition. They have been playing at the highest level they can since they are 6 years old. A 2 man team??? Every starter on this team is a serious threat and their 2nd lines show no weakness. 60 goals on the day spread out amongst at least 10 players. I watched the games and they played hard nose lacrosse like they are coached to do. Forget the score the ability to compete with this team was no where to be found. These are 2024 boys who know how to play the game and get better every single weekend. Attack stick skills and vision are off the charts, the middies can run and dodge with anyone and the D was lock down. Not to mention the goalies are as legit as they come. Don't hate because you lost and think this team needed to prove something. And Mr A team big mouths worry about the Bandits and not the 2024 squad. Focus your energy on that .

Your brain is definitely not overly inflated. The scores don't come from the teams. They come from the ref's, after coaches from both teams sign off on them. Then they go to tourney machine. Get a clue before you go off on one of you tirades about some topic that you made up in that confused mind of yours. Regardless, every game was a lot to zero. What difference does it make if it was 10-0 or 20-0??

Nice try daddy-o but everyone knows the pack has never lost, or even had anything remotely close to a competitive game, with 2024 s2s.

I understand that you are embarrassed even somewhat humiliated that your sons 2023 team got lit up... ok, set on fire, by wolfpack. But does making stuff up make you feel all that better??

Ok, this is one big lie. We all have been at this for along time. Your coach and director knew what teams were going to be there for some time, you yourself knew for a few days. “The pack”, lol, had sole time to dropout. Organizers contact the coaches to review brackets and scheduling from a week to two weeks before. The schedule comes out three to four days before.

Wow, that made absolutely no sense... elite teams look for C teams to beat up on to make them better. Completely brilliant!! I never would have thought of that! But, one good deed deserves another, so now I got one for you. If that were true, then the pack definitely did their homework and found the absolute BEST tourney of the WORST teams on Long Island, because the teams at that tourney couldn't have been any worse.

I have never seen so many flags. This is a contact sport and should be played as such.

I didn't have travel lacrosse (shows my age) but played some hockey and we couldn't play in a non "a" tournament with our team we were only allowed 3 "a" players for each team regardless of the age group playing up. Something for the directors to think about. But as long as we keep forking over the money then they wont care.

Everyone needs to relax here. Its really not that big of deal who beat who by what. As these are 13-14 year olds. Its fall ball first off. Enjoy your kids cause they can play and they are healthy to run around. Listen 99% of these boys aren't going to play in college. Does that make them "doormats" I don't think so. So you should really watch what you say as it only take 1 injury to your kids to put him on a doormat team. These kids take their opinions from us. We treat the other team like door mats then they will also. Then when another kids responds to that, everyone is shocked.

So remember this is a game, play it for fun. Last I looked we all are paying for our kids to play. Thinking about that. Some of you are paying 4000-5000 a year. IF they are good they will be good no matter what the score was in 8th grade "B" tournament. I know kids who don't play travel but yet go division 1. So doormat dad get a life. go back to your age group. as if we could play full contact maybe the game would be different.

Just my opinion


FYI dad, the "doormat" comment came from one of your degenerate 8th grade parents. And, for the record, the contact wouldn't have helped. Skill wins every time. Been there done that. And if you played the game, then you know.

Having seen Bandits since 3rd grade and Wolfpack for past 2 years, I am confident in saying the formula they use to make an awesome lax team is the best. Their teams have smacked by sons team around in precision, speed and smarts. WP looks the same as Bandits, maybe less some star power. And the squad uses on-age WSYL players to get ready as other big names fail to adjust to losing their holdbacks.

It is smart to play up vs older B teams as this time because it is part of WSYL prep. Learn how to play with bigger, more aggro opponents to reinforce ball movement and seeing the field fully. If the B teams get embarrassed, that is their problem.

I always hear parents marveling at how great Bandits and WP play the game when on sidelines watching them for first time. They are impressive. More teams should follow the model to build skills against taller, bigger, faster opponents.

Better check your stat sheet fact boy, because 99% of the goals were assisted, meaning there still are no stars on Wolfpack. None. Everyone is a threat. Our boys move the ball and beat you as a well oiled, completely self-less, TEAM.

Your comment shows that you are just another jealous Pack hater, who was not even at the game yesterday. If you were, you would have known that there were no WP standouts. But there never is with WP. Now you know our secret.


“Every goal was assisted”. That your claim to fame. What does that actually mean. The opposite is every goal was scored with a player stealing the ball, running down the feild and scoring without passing. Did you think that post out. Come on bro, you have a good team, but you should be the spokeswolf.



Bro, you seriously don't know what an "assist" is! You need to find a new sport or a new website, or how about both.

This is something that Nine-D-One has been doing for years with their holdbacks. Junior (the kid who should be a 2021 but is a 2022 holdback -- and plays up on the 2020 team because he's that good) used to routinely play down on the 2023 team so he could play with his brothers -- they would enter the B bracket of 2022 divisions and then when they beat up on the weak 2022 teams, it would be all over their website that the Bandits played up and won. This is about marketing and brand awareness. How do you think so few organizations have been successful every year trotting out multiple teams at an age group?

Nobody running around saying they were the best. They are kids who want to play lax and were in a skill appropriate tournament. You were delusional if you looked at the list of teams playing and thought this is top talent. Have you ever heard of the Machine before? As stated earlier your directors could have pulled you out. They didn’t. Your lineup for this weekend will be more of the same. Maybe you should speak up and say you want to play with some of the teams that went to Denver.

Hey baseball boy. Never heard of the Machine before unless it’s the Ohio version, but I have heard of the Preds before, which are hands down the top program in Westchester. And the ‘23 team went to Denver last year. Yeah, we did our homework. THAT is the team we were told we would be playing, and the reason we were at your little tourney. Obviously there was a miscommunication somewhere. We gain nothing by playing what amounts to moving pylons. That’s right, one good insult deserves another.

Proved my point they the Pack parents are a$$holes! You did your homework? Hope your kid is smarter than you are or he will just be another dumb jock. If you did your homework you would have known exactly what you were getting. When you saw the schedule and saw a team you have never heard of, it should have been your first clue genius. So who on your roster for this weekend are you thinking is top competition? FLG? BBL North or Garden City?? No Denver competitors there.

I have a kid on the S2S team and never tried to say he is a rockstar. Middle of the road player who loves the game. His team is brand new. They changed up the roster this year and this was their first tournament. They played hard against the Wolfpack and were the only team to score on them. I was proud they didn’t give up. Maybe the Wolfpack parents and kids should use it as an example. Our parents complimented the other team and our kids gave it their all regardless. Listening to the Pack parents is an embarrassment. Talking crap about the team when they had no idea was sitting next to them. Classy. If they think they are so great and we aren’t worth playing then go play the teams in our age group that you think count. May seem pathetic to you to lose to a team a year younger but competition is what it is and these kids didn’t give up.


That’s a very nice feel good pep talk you just gave us, but you may want to save it next time, for when it applies. You got a little carried away, there dad.

Almost every kid on all the teams “gave up” well before the end of all the games. Most gave up after a few minutes. Not trying to stir the pot, but let’s try to keep it real here.

And if you are referring to the frustrated cheap shot artist, I don’t consider that admirable behavior and I certainly wouldn’t condone it by referring to it as “not giving up.”



If there is a scrum next to the crease and the goalie is in the crease and your little all star is hitting the goalie, maybe you should teach him that it might get a little physical. Goalies a nice kid. But dont start something if you are afraid of getting a little physical.

OK. Time to set the record straight. I don't normally participate in mindless back and forth like this, but to tell you the truth I am embarrassed as an 8th grade parent. This entire topic is the result of an 8th grade parent accusing the wolfpack team of reporting a false score to tourney machine, and signing up for a well known B tournament to beat up on B teams. Both accusations are ridiculous. I am a coach and have participated in many tournaments that use tourney machine. No team nor coach reports anything to tourney machine. That comes from the tournament directors who get their scores from the refs. As far as the Mustang Classic goes, this tourney has been around a very long time. It is a well known "A" tournament on Long Island. This is NOT Battle of the B's. On occasion, B teams enter the tournament to see how they stack up against good competition. Wolfpack had no reason to think they would be matched up against four B teams. The 2023 dads on here, and their lack of knowledge of the subject matter, and completely arbitrary accusations, is an embarrassment for the entire grade.

I've seen incorrect scores on TourneyMachine in the past. Sometimes they crowdsource the scores and those results are usually comical.

You should be embarrassed. There were no A teams on the roster for this tournament. Mr. I did my homework obviously didn’t because he saw the schedule several days before. When you have NEVER heard of a team they probably aren’t that good. If they mistook S2S for the A team fine (but their directors should have known that). Point is none of the teams that were there pretended to be anything they weren’t . My kids team didn’t give up. I would never call insult someone’s kids like that. They were talking $hit about the teams on the sidelines. So rude.

Hey guy. Your kid got spanked. It’s now Tuesday. 3 days since then. Time to Let it go. And stop making [ChillLaxin] up. Your kid was over it before the game even ended and he was the one that played. Not you, daddy who lives his life through his 13 year old. If you are getting so bent out of shape about a dumb fall kids lacrosse game, you seriously need to get a life.

yes this whole thread falls under ridiculous. i think if wolfpack played 2024, they'd get bashed. they played up, they get bashed based on who they play. sort of a no-win situation. no one doubts how good they are. you put any top 3 team in any age and have them play up against certain b teams, same result. but a lot of the grief they get on here is caused by their obnoxious parents. and its seeping down into the kids. seeing as how you are involved so much in the lacrosse world you should see that. and no one really trusts/has much faith in the tournament organizer, who has a certain connection to a lacrosse club, which had multiple teams in this. and they had to make sure the 91 teams wouldnt play each other and there wasn't much other competition. so the whole idea of them, now knowing who they would play when their club essentially made the schedule is wrong. i sure wouldn't wanted to have froze my you know what off to sit through that. sure, maybe they made a mistake and go the score wrong. you typically dont't see that much of a delta though. At the end of the day, you play who you play and the results speak for themselves. one of the best teams at their age.

You should be embarrassed. There were no A teams on the roster for this tournament. Mr. I did my homework obviously didn’t because he saw the schedule several days before. When you have NEVER heard of a team they probably aren’t that good. If they mistook S2S for the A team fine (but their directors should have known that). Point is none of the teams that were there pretended to be anything they weren’t . My kids team didn’t give up. I would never call insult someone’s kids like that. They were talking $hit about the teams on the sidelines. So rude.


Hey guy. Your kid got spanked. It’s now Tuesday. 3 days since then. Time to Let it go. And stop making [ChillLaxin] up. Your kid was over it before the game even ended and he was the one that played. Not you, daddy who lives his life through his 13 year old. If you are getting so bent out of shape about a dumb fall kids lacrosse game, you seriously need to get a life. It’s obviously pretty pathetic.



Really it’s the tournament who got over on everyone. They filled the spot with a team that was not in character with the rest. It’s a shame since losing and winning teams lost out. The winners just pissed away money that could have been used for a proper level tournament. As a parent I’d be pissed at my club for stealing a whole day of my time. Everyone likes to win but at some point the joy is lost when you know it’s a mismatch of talent level. Was that winning T-shirt or draw string bag really worth the day? For the unfortunate teams that played in an over matched tournament, move on, it happens often.

Same s2s dad. Still not over it. I’ll be sure and tell Spallina that he and his Bandits are entered into another B tourney this weekend. You are an unending source of really dumb, uninformed information, aren’t you. By the way, don’t you have anything better to do with your time than stalk a 12 year old lacrosse team, tracking their every tournament?? Does that seem very weird, even sick, to you??? A little obsessed maybe?

Jealousy is a very sad phenomenon. There is always a large percentage of people that are jealous of talent and success. Happens in every aspect of life. Sports, being a microcosm of life, is a constant and vivid reminder, as successful teams like the Patriots and the Yankee's are hated by the masses. Unfortunately, and sadly, this even applies to youth sports and small children, as parents attempt to relive their childhood through their children and become the sports star that they never were. These parents are insecure individuals who experienced little to no success as children, and more often than not, the same as adults. As a result they "hate" to see it in other's. It makes them feel "less than". Real successful and self assured individual's don't hate. There is no jealousy. Time to take a good look in the mirror, people, and take an accurate inventory of your life. Let's get things in perspective, because hating on little kids is just wrong.

WP has put themselves in a very easy bracket, again; just as they have done every fall for years because they are much better than the competition at 2024 (in the fall tourneys). They are an excellent team and have been since jump street, but now have a WSYL roster, so several players are likely young 2023’s (though the parents will claim to the contrary). I’m not sure how this will affect their tournament choices for the summer. Either way, they know that they are not going to be able to compete against A level 2023 teams and will return to playing 2024 in the spring and summers. Please move on.
As a matter of fact, there is only one challenging bracket this weekend. Bandits, West Coast Stars, Atlantic Coast All Stars, Edge and Thunder would not be scored upon by any of the other teams in the tournament, WP included. They are all outstanding teams. If the Atlantic Coast All Stars come with a full roster, they are unbeatable. Edge is big, physical and skilled, also. Both are stacked with older players. The Bandits are still an amazing team, but have become heavily dependent on one player, offensively. They will be tested for certain.

This was def a B tournament. Especially if you rate AA, A, B. That said, WP was originally supposed to play up at the Pumpkin Shootout which had a stronger A presence. Due to weather that tournament was cancelled and the majority of teams were enrolled in Mustang. WP isnt out there looking to embarrass teams or play down so stop the BS. Your coaches has as much time as WP to look at the schedule and say something. You win some you lose some. You lost to one of the top teams in the country. Say what you will but they are. Learn from it and build on it. My son lost to them, on age, 10-1 last year. Loved the experience and took a lot away from it.

It makes them feel "less than". Real successful and self assured individual's don't hate. There is no jealousy. Time to take a good look in the mirror, people, and take an accurate inventory of your life. Let's get things in perspective, because hating on little kids is just wrong.

They are like that. Horrible display.

Thanks WP dad. I look forward to your chest thumping after another B tourney this weekend.

Same s2s dad. Still not over it. I’ll be sure and tell Spallina that he and his Bandits are entered into another B tourney this weekend. You are an unending source of really dumb, uninformed information, aren’t you. By the way, don’t you have anything better to do with your time than stalk a 12 year old lacrosse team, tracking their every tournament?? Does that seem very weird, even sick, to you??? A little obsessed maybe?

[/quote]

Not stalking anyone. My other son is playing. Maybe I will watch the WP play so I can listen to the parents be obnoxious on the sidelines. So entertaining![/quote]



Jealousy is a very sad phenomenon. There is always a large percentage of people that are jealous of talent and success. Happens in every aspect of life. Sports, being a microcosm of life, is a constant and vivid reminder, as successful teams like the Patriots and the Yankee's are hated by the masses. Unfortunately, and sadly, this even applies to youth sports and small children, as parents attempt to relive their childhood through their children and become the sports star that they never were.

This entire topic is the result of an 8th grade parent accusing the wolfpack team of reporting a false score to tourney machine, and signing up for a well known B tournament to beat up on B teams. Both accusations are ridiculous. I am a coach and have participated in many tournaments that use tourney machine. No team nor coach reports anything to tourney machine. That comes from the tournament directors who get their scores from the refs. As far as the Mustang Classic goes, this tourney has been around a very long time. It is a well known "A" tournament on Long Island. This is NOT Battle of the B's. On occasion, B teams enter the tournament to see how they stack up against good competition. Wolfpack had no reason to think they would be matched up against four B teams. The 2023 dads on here, and their lack of knowledge of the subject matter, and completely arbitrary accusations, is an embarrassment for the entire grade.


You should be embarrassed. There were no A teams on the roster for this tournament. Mr. I did my homework obviously didn’t because he saw the schedule several days before. When you have NEVER heard of a team they probably aren’t that good. If they mistook S2S for the A team fine (but their directors should have known that). Point is none of the teams that were there pretended to be anything they weren’t . My kids team didn’t give up. I would never call insult someone’s kids like that. They were talking $hit about the teams on the sidelines. So rude.


Hey guy. Your kid got spanked. It’s now Tuesday. 3 days since then. Time to Let it go. And stop making [ChillLaxin] up. Your kid was over it before the game even ended and he was the one that played. Not you, daddy who lives his life through his 13 year old. If you are getting so bent out of shape about a dumb fall kids lacrosse game, you seriously need to get a life. It’s obviously pretty pathetic.



Really it’s the tournament who got over on everyone. They filled the spot with a team that was not in character with the rest. It’s a shame since losing and winning teams lost out. The winners just pissed away money that could have been used for a proper level tournament. As a parent I’d be pissed at my club for stealing a whole day of my time. Everyone likes to win but at some point the joy is lost when you know it’s a mismatch of talent level. Was that winning T-shirt or draw string bag really worth the day? For the unfortunate teams that played in an over matched tournament, move on, it happens often.


This was def a B tournament. Especially if you rate AA, A, B. That said, WP was originally supposed to play up at the Pumpkin Shootout which had a stronger A presence. Due to weather that tournament was cancelled and the majority of teams were enrolled in Mustang. WP isnt out there looking to embarrass teams or play down so stop the BS. Your coaches has as much time as WP to look at the schedule and say something. You win some you lose some. You lost to one of the top teams in the country. Say what you will but they are. Learn from it and build on it. My son lost to them, on age, 10-1 last year. Loved the experience and took a lot away from it.
ok WP DAD. Please stop tooting your own horn.


Um, read the post before you reply little man. I said my son lost to WP last year 10-1. We are an A team that was at the tournament and were surprised by the low level of play. We were one of the teams rescheduled from Pumpkin Shootout The teams we played, much like WP, changed. Our mustang schedule and bracket was much weaker and well below the quality that would have been at Pumpkin Shootout.

You would like to think so, wouldn't you jealous daddy hater. But history dictates otherwise, unfortunately for you. Apparently you have been one of the lucky ones, where the pack hasn't played your sons team, until... now. But there are plenty of dads reading this, that have kids on what they consider A teams, that have played the Pack, and lost! Plenty. Because the pack has been playing up for years, and far more often than not, the pack wins those contests. Sorry Charlie!

They lose to Taz more often than not and can’t beat most Maryland teams anymore. They are a bunch of tiny has-beens. You’re kid peaked in 5th grade Pack Rat. The road is gonna get bumpy! LOL!
Now go play in your own sandbox.

They had an oppty to play the Warriors and refused (co-champs, wahoo!) after routinely getting destroyed by them in scrimmages. If it was about development, you play that last game - you guys refused b/c the T-shirt means more than actually testing yourselves. Keep ducking all talent and calling yourself the best 7th grade team on the planet, we’re all jealous, wolf pack mommy....

Oh no, the wolfpack didn’t get the top ranking in WSYL that just came out. A blow to their fragile egos. Come on boys, give us the excuses. Let them ride, best team in America.

WP has put themselves in a very easy bracket, again; just as they have done every fall for years because they are much better than the competition at 2024 (in the fall tourneys). They are an excellent team and have been since jump street, but now have a WSYL roster, so several players are likely young 2023’s (though the parents will claim to the contrary). I’m not sure how this will affect their tournament choices for the summer. Either way, they know that they are not going to be able to compete against A level 2023 teams and will return to playing 2024 in the spring and summers. Please move on.
As a matter of fact, there is only one challenging bracket this weekend. Bandits, West Coast Stars, Atlantic Coast All Stars, Edge and Thunder would not be scored upon by any of the other teams in the tournament, WP included. They are all outstanding teams. If the Atlantic Coast All Stars come with a full roster, they are unbeatable. Edge is big, physical and skilled, also. Both are stacked with older players. The Bandits are still an amazing team, but have become heavily dependent on one player, offensively. They will be tested for certain.


Bandits play up when they practice twice per week with JS 2022 team. This weekend Bandits will be missing several players so this will be a great test for them being undermanned so yes I am in agreement they will be tested. This is pretty much the last year and a half of this 'my team is better than yours" nonsense . Pretty soon NO ONE CARES WHO WINS

My feeling is the Bandits have proved themselves many many many times so this isnt about them. For me this is more about WP parents trying to put them at same level as Bandits. Bandits are superior in every position from attack to coaching. The bigger question is why WP thinks they should be higher than Taz, being that Taz pretty much has won every time they have played

WP would get crushed by 2023 ACS team playing in NY this weekend. Time to move the conversation back to 2023.

It’s almost a week since your kids suffered their beat down by Wolfpack. And I haven’t seen a single post in days from a Wolfpack parent. Get over the obsession already. Move on with your life.

Hi daddy. Great topic! So glad you brought it up! But, the GC team that our boys played was no average ‘23 town team. No, indeed! GC used their 2022’s to play 2024 WP. Confirmed by multiple GC players. Gotta love their honesty.

The ‘22 GC team had just finished playing their last game and went undefeated in their bracket, when it was time for the ‘23 GC to play WP.

GC ‘23 had tied twice, at that point, with a 5 to 5 tie vs BBL. Pack CRUSHED BBL 14-3. You get the idea. GC ‘23 was in for a VERY long day against the Pack.

So they grabbed their ‘22’s for the game vs the Pack.

Some very good players, no doubt! Gave the Pack a great game, but the ref lost track of time and let the game run two minutes beyond regulation time.

So in reality, Pack won the game by 2 goals, against a very good team, albeit 2 YEARS OLDER THAN THE PACK.

A great game on both sides! Fun to watch. Some of those ‘22 GC boys are very good!

So that was our day today. How did your boys team do today?

you mean how without your 5 have holdbacks, which are clearly your hole team , . You would be average at best. All 2023 today, don’t listen to the holdback face off kids parents. GC was the only true B team in the bracket and you struggled with us . If it was not for your 2 best players(middies) you would be done.

Easily... I don't know why you guys waste your time playing 23. I'm not one of these parents who assumes every kid is a holdback although I'm sure a few of those guys are. I could care less. Why not play up and see what you can really do?

Hi daddy. Great topic! So glad you brought it up! But, the GC team that our boys played was no average ‘23 town team. No, indeed! GC used their 2022’s to play 2024 WP. Confirmed by multiple GC players. Gotta love their honesty.

The ‘22 GC team had just finished playing their last game and went undefeated in their bracket, when it was time for the ‘23 GC to play WP.

GC ‘23 had tied twice, at that point, with a 5 to 5 tie vs BBL. Pack CRUSHED BBL 14-3. You get the idea. GC ‘23 was in for a VERY long day against the Pack.

So they grabbed their ‘22’s for the game vs the Pack.

Some very good players, no doubt! Gave the Pack a great game, but the ref lost track of time and let the game run two minutes beyond regulation time.

So in reality, Pack won the game by 2 goals, against a very good team, albeit 2 YEARS OLDER THAN THE PACK.

A great game on both sides! Fun to watch. Some of those ‘22 GC boys are very good!

So that was our day today. How did your boys team do today?

Lets put it this way, 100% of the Wolfpack team will be at the WSYL in July. Every single kid. I highly doubt ant team going, can say that.

Are you kidding me? This is a pretty pathetic post. You think the head coach of a multiple state championship varsity team is going to use holdbacks against 7th graders? Come on. And to say the kids told you that is absolutely ridiculous. Your team is good. I will give the kids and parents credit for that. But Garden City doesn’t play to win in the race to zero of the club lacrosse scene. As you can see, they had 3 ties against teams with varying ability so everyone could play. They play to get kids better and keep them playing for the entirety of high school. Not to win a game tournament in 8th grade. There are 23 kids in 8th grade on that team and everyone plays even time. And 17 of them just finished a middle school football season undefeated and will be going to watch the varsity Long Island championship football game on Friday. So cut the complaining. Cut the excuses. You tied older kids. Some good. Some average. But much different than most B teams you play because there are A players that many of your kids will not be better athletes than. Good luck in Denver. It is a fun tournament. Now go challenge yourself with the best teams in your grade.

you mean how without your 5 have holdbacks, which are clearly your hole team , . You would be average at best. All 2023 today, don’t listen to the holdback face off kids parents. GC was the only true B team in the bracket and you struggled with us . If it was not for your 2 best players(middies) you would be done.


No horse in race, but I watched the GC team play BBL. That was not a good team. The GC team that played WP was a completely different team.

S2S daddy, is that you?? It is you! Welcome to the conversation. Hoping you can enlighten all of us as to how WP beat BBL in a 14-3 route while GC tied them 5-5. Most rational individuals (including GC obviously) would look at that and say the Pack is going to demolish GC. No point in playing the game.

There you have it folks, another great day for our boys. So proud of them playing and succeeding against 2022’s, in their first real game of the fall season.

Really? Either you or your children are not being truthful. After careful examination of the evidence, any prudent observer would conclude, you are the one not being truthful. If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, guess what? It’s a duck.

No horse in the race? You just routinely watch 2023 B level lacrosse games with absolutely no horse I the race? That seems a bit off...

I watched the BBL WP game for a bit. WP looked very good but what stuck out was the lack of ability to score from anything other than shots from close range. Great skill set but coach cried on any hit of consequence by BBL. WP parents are a obnoxious bunch for sure. They will need some size to compete next year. Enjoy the time in the sun.

now that is funny, first using 2022 on a town team, i have never heard of a town team doing that, especially not GC where you wait your turn in the program, a program that goes to the LIC or NYSC each year, so your 2022 claim is a lie, and so is the clock bs. If your are a WP parent, get over it. enjoy the ride to the WSYL, but don't disparage a town, a team, a coach or the kids.
You have this whole thing backwards, a 24 team played well against a 23 team, see the positive and focus on your goal. To freak out now over a fall game is nuts, so much more pressure to come. You won't make it to July.

Not a WP parent, but now I’m curious. Did these 23’s not play in the previous two games? Because nobody from GC has explained how GC ties BBL which WP obviously blew out. Based on the score, the game was not competitive. Somebody from GC please explain that. Because to this point, all I’m hearing is a lot of bragging about the GC program, but no explanation. That is the question that needs to be answered.

No explanation needed. A tie game means the teams were evenly matched, which is what we should all want when we attend a tournament. Both teams were challenged. That is a good thing. This bracket was set up well based on the amount of tie games. Kudos to the directors

Explanation options for you to choose from, please pick one or all of the above.

1. BBL played poorly against WP
2. GC played better than previous games against WP
3. WP did not play as well against GC
4. All of the above

Yes please. the parents are a bunch of spoiled brats. BTW we are part of 91 not WP and everyone there knows how they act. They also have about 5 or 6 kids on their team that should be playing 2023 , so why they brag is beyond me.

Not a WP parent, but now I’m curious. Did these 23’s not play in the previous two games? Because nobody from GC has explained how GC ties BBL which WP obviously blew out. Based on the score, the game was not competitive. Somebody from GC please explain that. Because to this point, all I’m hearing is a lot of bragging about the GC program, but no explanation. That is the question that needs to be answered.



Explanation options for you to choose from, please pick one or all of the above.

1. BBL played poorly against WP
2. GC played better than previous games against WP
3. WP did not play as well against GC
4. All of the above



Again, not a WP parent, but to an unbiased observer, that is simply not logical. Based on that answer, I have to side with the WP parent on this one.

No explanation needed. A tie game means the teams were evenly matched, which is what we should all want when we attend a tournament. Both teams were challenged. That is a good thing. This bracket was set up well based on the amount of tie games. Kudos to the directors


An explanation is most definitely in order. Getting on here and arrogantly saying "I'm from GC, how dare you challenge this program" isn't an answer. This is youth lacrosse, the Wild West of youth sports. Pulling stud players from other teams, is beyond commonplace. I looked at the scores. While I don't know anything about Wolfpack, something definitely stinks here. Sounds to me like GC is bashing Wolfpack parents as a smokescreen, to divert attention away from something they are hiding. What is GC hiding? The scores definitely don't add up.

GC is a reputable team. The coach of the 2023’s is the varsity coach and has never played to win. He consistently put that town team in A brackets for the last 4 years, that I know of, and they got beat down more often than not. My sons team generally beats them by close to 10 goals every time they play. The coach doesn’t worry about that. He’s doing it to make the varsity program better.

When it comes down to it, it’s merely a matter of matchups. Maybe WP leading scorer was shut down by a GC defender. Maybe WP middies are not big or strong enough to cover the big fast GC kid (coach’s kid I think). Maybe GC dominated the X. Maybe WP defender could stop a GC attack. All it takes is one of those things to happen and the game is drastically changed. Comparing common opponents can be used as a guide, but it doesn’t really mean much when the horn blows.

To come on here and accuse them of cheating just because they beat a team that’s a year younger is a little ridiculous, don’t you think? WP is a, primarily, 2024 team. They will beat a bunch of 2023’s, for sure, but definitely not most of them. They are supposed to lose. JA is smart, just like JS, he plays them up in weak tourneys so they can get used to bigger opponents. That doesn’t mean more skilled, just bigger.

A pack parent here. I can honestly say, none of those generalities apply to what happened Saturday. Not one. You are a GC person, but you weren't even at the game on Saturday. In fact, you don't even have a son in the 2023 grad year. If you were there, you wouldn't post about scenario's that have no relevance to your case. Not a single one. The sole purpose of your post is to defend GC's integrity, which I can I appreciate, but I believe the poster is looking for a first hand account of what happened, based on the facts of the case, of which you have none. Just more GC... "we are the best, do you know how we are, how dare you, blah, blah, blah BS".

The only comment thus far, that has made any sense at all, is from the guy that posted about how "the '23's just got back from playing up". But it ended there. The only explanation I can think of, besides pulling from the 2022 team, would be if those TOP '23 players that played up, didn't play in the first two games. That is the only plausible explanation, besides pulling 2022 kids. But, that has not been presented.

Something definitely happened between GC's first two games and their last game. Something very significant. BBL was not a good team. No matchup problems. NOT good. Bad. Understand? We really don't care what you did, because in the end GC was a great test for our boys, but when something as dramatic that happens, people are going to naturally ask questions, no matter who you are. You are not exempt, just because you have a GC zip code. If there aren't any answers, the talk begins. Still no answers.

Now, you can come back and take the low road once again, and criticize the pack parents or take the high road and tell us how great GC is, but we all know that is all just to deflect attention away from the issue at hand. At this point, it sounds like we will never know.

It’s ok that your little junior bro didn’t beat a good town team, bro. It’s ok, though bro. I’m sure he’ll still get that D1 full ride, bro. You can send coaches his 7th grade highlight films, bro. Bro, they’ll be super stoked at how awesome he is, bro. But be sure to leave out the GC game, bro. Don’t want coaches seeing little bro all banged up, bro.

What will the Puppypack do when they play the big boys without the protection of LI refs? Parents will be beside themselves if this is any indication. Small and fast won’t be enough in another year or 2. Better grab a 1/2 team of holdbacks for the future. Just the beginning of the collapse.

Very impressed with the 91 box teams. To be very good at both field and box is impressive. Was there a method to the split of the teams at the maple leaf kickoff or just random.

So looks like the turtles are not as good as all the dads said they were going to be. They said” they can run with all the A teams on Li”.
Today they struggled to beat B teams today.
They even lost to one b team.
Well.....what will the excuse be now?
It’s a new team,not enough practice or the other teams cheated?!?
Well the are a good B team at least.

See and believe what you want. The first game was sloppy all around for both teams. The rest of the games they took care of business. At some point, in the near future, the hopes is that this talent pool can and will "run"/compete with those self appointed "A" teams.

Stop,their third game against another B team they only won by two goals!
Hey they looked good today I’m not saying they are bad at all. But to play with the bandits,express A,Igloo,True Blue,three village.Its not going to go well.
The Turtles will be one of the better B teams and that is great.Im not knocking the players they played well and coaching was good.
I’m just saying some of the turtles dads were talking a lot of smack and today was some humble for them.
I just don’t know why these dads can’t be happy or proud of their kids and team unless they are classified as “A” teams.
The B teams on Long Island this year for2023 are stacked with talent and that makes for great lax for all the teams.
Good luck to all and for the love of god enjoy your boy and watching him play.the A or B thing doesn’t mean crap except to the crazy dads.As long as they have fun and learn as they go they are on the right team.Peace!!

I'm not a Turtle parent, their team looked good once they began to click, especially for a newly formed team. My son plays on those one of those self "appointed A" teams went to watch his friend play, and came home talking about joining the Turtles next year.

At the end of the day, the only thing that matters is; a newly formed team with great caching, no daddy ball, all the boys get along, everyone plays, boys are happy to see one another do well. Most important, the team is developing, and all the boys went home HAPPY!
Poster sounds like he/she has an axe to grind with some of the parents on the Turtles

LOL......Here we go! Stirring the pot!
See and believe what you want. The first game was sloppy all around for both teams. The rest of the games they took care of business. At some point, in the near future, the hopes is that this talent pool can and will "run"/compete with those self appointed "A" teams.


I'm not a Turtle parent, their team looked good once they began to click, especially for a newly formed team. My son plays on those one of those self "appointed A" teams went to watch his friend play, and came home talking about joining the Turtles next year.


Baaahahahahahahaha!! “Not a Turtle parent”!!! You’re a joke.

A few of the Turtles parents deserve every bit of the criticism. Maybe tell them to fall in line.

I agree a few of those turtles parents are way out there.
A few of them has had their kid on a different team each year for five years now.Next year will be no different,a bunch of grass is greener type.
I kinda feel bad for their coach.He has no idea what he’s in for.These dads are crazy on the sidelines!!

No,I know many of those dads and they are toxic.
They start fights with other parents,just no class.
Stating facts not opinions.
Their are a few dads on the turtles team that are absolute gentlemen.Im sure at this point they are wondering what they got them and their sons into.

True. There is a jealous hater out there on the team the boys left. The boys are so happy to get rid of the politics on the team they left. Bad previous coaches and clicky Dad's.

You're blaming bad coaches and clicky Igloo parents for your son's lack of playing time? I think you need to become a little more realistic. Your son played in the fall until the bill was paid. Then the coaches played the best kids at every position. It's pretty tough to jump to one of the best team and expect too many minutes. Be happy where he is. Playing time is more important at this stage than being on a top 10 team.

Ha, the true comes out. Nobody mentioned Igloo until you did. We know who you are. Stay unhappy at Igloo and stop bashing other clubs. You're probably the one bashing the other clubs as well.

If that is what the coaches did what does that say about a team or coach like that. Why should that dad keep his kids there if as you say the clearly do not have the kids best interest at hand just waiting for the check to clear?

Actually, I'll bet most of them are happy the sideline act is gone. It's the same thing every year on every competitive club, dads thinks their sons are better than they are, talk crap all season then leave. Enjoy the next stop on the merry go round.

Fall is the time to see what the new guys can do. Summer is the time to put the best kids on the field. If those parents didn’t look around and see that their boys were over their heads then they deserve lighter wallets. Every club knows that parents will pay to be on better teams. It’s not the boys’ faults. They were all nice kids and good players. This is on those insane parents. The 3-4 boys that left Igloo were brought on last year for depth. They were told this after tryouts. They were better than the 3rd line kids they replaced, but not skilled enough to bump starters. That’s reality. Maybe if they stuck around, this year would be different. But they didn’t, so for the 3rd or 4th year in a row they will go to a new club. And, next fall, they will likely be bashing the Turtle coaches and directors for not realizing their kids’ potential. Loyalty and humility are character traits that parents should be instilling in their children, not self-pity and impulsivity.

Wow! For a 2023 Team that’s one Tournament in there’s a lot of banter. To the poster waxing on about those kids were 2nd liners not 3rd but if they stayed maybe they’d be FIRST, mmkay. What happens to 1st? Do they GOTO Turtles then? See if you played line 1 25 mins and Line 2 15 mins except in Must win Games and YOU can actually run a practice where all Kids get great instruction as opposed to line 2 being used as mobile ORANGE CONES as Daddy’s kid and his BAE buddy and Coach’s pool guy and Owners Sisters Mister and a Vice Principals kid who is over matched but promises he’ll get Coach a School District Job TEAM the kids will stay and grow.
I’m betting plenty of 2’s, 3’s and 4’s at their positions from former teams without the Daddy / Friend / Team Surgeon / PAL Director / Local School Coach / Owner ( insert Pool / Car Dealership etc etc ) just trying to avoid politics. Hopefully it is a mostly politic free team. Happy my boy ain’t a 2023 or 2021 as those years are flamed on here.

Lmao! Two were starters and the others were better than those you had starting - hence never being able to close the deal and losing in the quarters/semi’s - nice job...cracked under pressure...but who’s keeping track?

This isn’t PAL, pops. The best kids play as much as they can. Find a team that your son is good enough to start on and you’ll be happy. Unless, of course, the coach applies your nonsensical “every kid gets a medal” approach and then you’ll complain that your kid is better and some kid is taking his minutes.

By the way, didn’t the Turtles say in their flyer that everyone plays equal minutes? That should make you very happy.

I have one question for this they were not asked back dad. If #1 Bandits added players, #Express Added players, Shore2Shore added players where did Igloo find these awesome players to replace the ones that left. Did these players walk off the street or were they great players sitting out there on the sidelines all this time?

I’m betting plenty of 2’s, 3’s and 4’s at their positions from former teams without the Daddy / Friend / Team Surgeon / PAL Director / Local School Coach / Owner ( insert Pool / Car Dealership etc etc ) just trying to avoid politics. Hopefully it is a mostly politic free team. Happy my boy ain’t a 2023 or 2021 as those years are flamed on here.


This isn’t PAL, pops. The best kids play as much as they can. Find a team that your son is good enough to start on and you’ll be happy. Unless, of course, the coach applies your nonsensical “every kid gets a medal” approach and then you’ll complain that your kid is better and some kid is taking his minutes.

By the way, didn’t the Turtles say in their flyer that everyone plays equal minutes? That should make you very happy.


Now you're trolling websites? The website doesn't say that anyway, but good try.

#1: Express has an enormous roster. Near 30 players. They didn’t cut anyone. Bandits didn’t cut anyone either, they’re at 26.

#2: Mediocre players are easy to replace. I know that sounds mean, but that’s who moves from team to team at this age. They probably found them in the same places they found them last year: Empire, Legacy, Hedstrom, Igloo B, etc.,,

Good question though. I hope this answer helped.

Maybe the team got stronger by getting rid of cancerous disgruntled parents. A toxic sideline has a tremendously negative affect on a team.

As does poor leadership - that team is lead by one individual who focuses in on those who share the same zip code - guess why they can never get over the hump...that team will dismantle soon enough the declining numbers are a clear indicator - I’m sure the director was sold a false bill of goods as to why...only a matter of time

So you're saying they replaced mediocre players with other Mediocre players? If your statement is true that means
1. The coaches took kids they know they will no play just to take their parents money.
2. The team is no better than it was last year because they did not upgrade any any position
3. The team could potentially be worse off than it was last year because at least 3 players that left were starters/

So basically this team has a reputation of taking players they are not really interested in playing and has not improved but the players that are there and do not play as much will stick around because they are loyal to the team or the parents will keep them there because that teaches them a life lesson.

That is the definition of madness. Lax is one of the only things where the consumer is unhappy but they sign up for more of the same and say thank you very much.

The funny thing is that there is a common thread linking most of these angry, bitter parents. I wonder what/where it is?

I never said that it was stated on the website. The flyer sent out for tryouts clearly promised “equal playing time”. It was one of there bulleted points. After collecting deposits, it has been reworded to read “everyone plays”. Lure the numbers in with a promise and then pull the rug. Smooth move, Turtles.

Let me get this straight dad. By your account, the kids who left should have all been starters on what is a highly regarded A team, and somehow your so called starters are now losing to B teams. You either have a coaching issue or a reality issue, and I understand the coaching is great.

You don't have a very firm grasp of the way travel lacrosse works, do you?

1. Coaches took kids they know will not start. This is absolutely true. Igloo is an elite level team. There are very few, if ANY, players that are changing teams at this point that would take minutes away from an established starter. Every team has players that will play very limited minutes, some will not play at all in close games. That's a reality. That's why it's important to find a team that suits your son's skill level.

2. The coaches feel that the players they took are better than the players that left (or at least not son's of parents who are sideline and chemistry distractions), so in theory, the team is stronger, if only from a depth perspective.

3. The team lost no impact players. They did not lose 3 starters. That's a fabrication. It is possible that one or two of the players started a game last fall, but not in spring or summer. Since no impact/starting players left, the core of the team is as strong as ever.

How many players on Igloo (or any competitive team) realistically play quality minutes? 4 attack, 5 midfield, 4 defenders, 1 fogo and a goalie. If your son is not in one of those players, then he is a role player. Everyone else on the team is there for depth. They are expendable. They are good players, but in no way are they great. They are unquestionably getting better by practicing with elite level players (and some parents think that is worth the cost of tuition). They are probably one of the top players in their town, and that's why their parents think they deserve more than they do. That's also why many of them move from team to team each year, leaving nothing but burnt bridges and trash talk behind.

Igloo can’t get over the hump? I’m not sure I understand. What hump? The are a top 3 team on LI and probably top 5 or 6 in the nation. Whatever they are doing is not only working, but should be the model for clubs seeking growth and success to follow. Your statement is so irrational that it’s laughable.

Have fun with your ELITE team. We'll see your little Johnny at tryouts next year. I think half the team was there this year. Says something doesn't it?

There was no denial, other than the statement that 3 starters left. If my statements open myself to criticism, then feel free to elaborate. You honestly sound like this is your first season of club lacrosse. And since it’s your 3rd or 4th team in as many years, I think that it’s is far more likely that your perception of your son’s current ability may be more than slightly biased.

It is truly sad to see that this site is nothing more than a bashing session of teams/organizations/kids and parents. Its a platform to see Who can beat their chest the hardest and articulate fallacies the best. There is NO useful lacrosse information being given what so ever. Just an " around the water cooler fest". What ever team/organization one is associated with so be it for what ever reason. Yes, bottom line, organizations are looking out for the all mighty $. One chooses to join such at their own volition. However, the focus and care should be on the kids who are looking to play competitive ball; at what ever level they are at, learn and grow with the game and make friends and connections along the way. Those responding on this site seems to want to drive people away from the game rather than embrace it......Pathetic

I don’t know gents, my kids team played them a bunch. Igloo is a dominant team. Right up there with Bandits and Express. Not really sure that’s questionable. I know we all hate the dominant teams lol! The part about not many players switching teams that could crack their starting lineup is balls on accurate. Unless the kid was from upstate or out of state.

I don't know what team your son is on, but Igloo is NOT in the same league as the Bandits or Express....and believe me, plenty of Long Island players could crack that lineup. They would just have to move to Manhasset first!

2023: Ranking (note hard to rank due to so many players playing multiple teams)

1. ACS (Holdbacks)
2. DC Dogs (holdbacks)
3. True National (holdbacks)
4. 91 (WSYL)
5. Express (WSYL)
6. Hawks - ACS players (still holdbacks)
7. Duke National (holdbacks from holdback teams can only play when other holdbacks are available)
8. BL (less holdbacks)
9. Freedom (more holdbacks)
10. Crabs (without ACS players)
11. Looney's
12. laxachusetts
13. Igloo
14. FCA
15. NL
15. Shore to Shore
15. Primetime
15. HHH
15. BBL
15. WCS
15. TX Mustangs

I would say Igloo is about 13 and that is a fair ranking for this team. Note that the rankings do not account for age/
