There were about 55-60 kids at first day of Express tryouts. A lot of non Express helmets but they didn't appear to be from many travel clubs.

Looking for the right fit for my son. Any word on second (B) Express team this upcoming season. I heard they had no kids and pulled in kids constantly. Feel bad for the boys (and families) on that team.

Seriously considering going to tryouts for Rebels for 2026.
Hagans is head coach.
Very few teans out there with coaches at the level of Hagans.
With everything Rebels is offering, and Hagans as head coach plus they hsve 2 other coaches this could develop into a great team.
Even if its not in the first year one of the top teams, with the coaching its sure to be a decent team and each year will do better.
And I figure this is a chance to get in from the beginning.

Hagans is a phenomenal coach, his assistant is a college coach. Cant beat that staff.

Your just a fool.
I was the parent who made the original comment.
And I have a 10 year old son who Im thinking of bringing to Rebels tryout.
And other people have been responding to my comment.

Why you find that so threatening that you need to make an ignorant comment, is beyond anyones understanding.

2026 roster for 91 are out.

To 91s credit Orange Storm has only 21 kids on the roster. Looks like they are keeping that team tight which is good. Those kids should get good playing time especially if coaches develop their players so they can play deep. Hoping that happens.

2026 Freeze on the other hand is heavy at a 25 man roster.
Not obnoxiously heavy, but a couple too many.
I know people will say there will be peopke who dont accept, but they had a significant showing at tryouts, so anyone who declines will probably be replaced. So expect to see 25 man roster.
How good that team is depends on who accepts.

Did hear there was a decent number of kids trying out, 50-60. As far as Igloo helmets, if there were "lots", I'm sure they were black (B team). Either way, doesn't mean the talent was anything along the lines of killing it.

91 appears to have reduced A team roster
Express emails going out today
Igloo calls started Wednesday night
S2S wrapped up tryouts yesterday
Rebels had weak turnout at initial camp... may get leftovers/cuts from the others
Outlaws showed up at Rebels tryouts (see above)

Any ideas on the others? Probably wont know real changes for a few more days.

Actual tryouts start this week.

The rebel’s selected few kids for each age groups after there “pretryout camp”. So essentially it was tryout to get the best kids before they went to other clubs

Let's all be real here. After Express Haugen, 91 Orange, and Igloo the competition died down greatly on L.I.. Legacy was very competitive with those teams last year but were not around this past season. Not sure what happened there. Outlaws, Empire, Moose, Mama's etc were decent but did not play outside their comfort zones which is expected because losing games = losing kids, which = losing $$$

Bottom line is this.

These boys are 10 years old.

Some are "elite" now and will progress
Some are "elite" now and will regress
Some are developing and will thrive in the future
Some have already "peaked" and want to play baseball
Some just want to play town with their friends which is all but gone!

Commit to the level and "club" that you can afford and remember that your dreams are very different from that of your 10 year old son!

It was a pretryout camp, but they said ahead of time they may select some kids from it after. So if there were some exxeptional kids then they were selected early.
That doesnt mean at the actual tryouts, kids who were at the pretryout wont be selected. Just that evaluations on who to select need to be made at that point assessing the skills of all the kids who tryout.

All very good points. Power can quickly shift, even year to year, at this age, with minimal player turnover. Look at Igloo 2026.. seemed to have the dominant team in this age group, and all their best players are still there.. until this spring.. 91 and Express clearly dominated them this year. So you’re absolutely correct- it’s way too early to be booking a ticket to Colorado, for kids going into fifth grade!

There has to be a much bigger difference in price between the A and B team. Last year it was nearly $1000- difference. Your friend must be quoting you last years price for the A team.

I believe you. Just not sure why they would make A and B teams that close on price. Who will even consider going to B team at $3800-. The B team doesnt get the same focus.

Express B includes (in writing) that they will train with Powers and get positional training over the winter (included in price). Now I don't think this justifies the price hike but its much more than what they got last season. Plus the fact that a director is the coach now I think they will get they focus they deserve.

If parents are notIntelligent enough to pay for it (and they are), they’ll continue to look smart, making almost $120,000 for rostering a single team. Still a ridiculous profit after backing out tourneys (especially when they’re you’re own), gear and coaching. Keep paying and the prices will keep going up.

Rebels tryout so far looks like some good kids trying out.
Hagans and Schroeder (I assume thats the other coach at the tryout) are very instructive with the kids.
I like what I see so far. Hopefully will be as good at tomorrows tryout.

If you think the head varsity coach for St. Anthony is going to be around a lot for a 2026 B team, you will be very dissapointed.

Hagans is a good coach but having to be very instructive at a tryout is not exactly a sign of good talent. You’d like to think a team which intends to be at an A or AA level would have enough talent showing up which understands lacrosse. Theyre not teaching game plays at tryouts so what do they need to be instructing on? Drills?

Thats the most ridiculous statement I ever heard.
Its extremely important to be instructive at practices.
These are kids going into 5th grade. No matter what level they are at, they have a lot to learn. And coaches need to know how well players take their instruction and act on it.
Now I think I really meant the coaches were very interactive with the kids, but instruction is defenitely an important facet on any team at this age level, tryout or not.

new person here... Weighing in...
More like small pointers without messing with flow of drills. I didn't know what to expect. Good talent all around. Didn't count, but decent numbers at middie and attack. Little short number wise at defense. 2 goalies. I'm new to this this year. Been to a few other tryouts. Talent here is up there imo. Probably mostly bubble level talent compared to the top clubs--my son was at one of them.

I think your missing the point. Your paying 125 bucks for tryout. They are trying to give you coaching tips so you can become a better player, while evaluating you. I think it’s a great idea. My son hasn’t tried out for them but their communications and honesty has been outstanding. Every time I’ve shot them an email they have responded within minutes.

Interactive is probably a better descriptor when talking tryouts. Like this past poster said... instructive is great at practices. Kids are always learning but hopefully a coach doesn’t need to be too instructive at a tryout. Thinking, but could be wrong, that’s what the responding poster was getting at. No one will deny learning is a constant.

Theyre not teaching game plays at tryouts so what do they need to be instructing on? Drills?
new person here... Weighing in...
More like small pointers without messing with flow of drills. I didn't know what to expect. Good talent all around. Didn't count, but decent numbers at middie and attack. Little short number wise at defense. 2 goalies. I'm new to this this year. Been to a few other tryouts. Talent here is up there imo. Probably mostly bubble level talent compared to the top clubs--my son was at one of them.


Yes. I found that also.
Plus what was great was the coaches really motivated these kids at tryouts. My kid and other kids walked out of tryouts really pumped to keep playing lacrosse. It was 90-100 degrees out, and after tryouts my kid went to another space to continue playing lacrosse with another kid.
These kids really enjoyed their time at the tryout, even in the extreme heat.

Actually you dont get it.
Im not praising my kid. It was the upbeat motivating way of these coaches at the Rebels tryout that really got the kids, all the kids, really hustling. Despite the extreme heat.
It was impressive.

It doesnt look like nassau had a 2026 team last year.
But they had tryouts for one this year. But they already occurred.

igloo is overall a pretty junky program... they get people to come out that do not want to travel from mnahasset to Suffolk. The director, Alexander, is beyond pompous. They have 40+ kids at each age, with maybe 2 coaches at practice. I get it, they have nice uniforms... but they have zero recruits for college, don't win games/tournaments, are in the upper $$ range for fees, and have mediocre coaches that don't consistently show for practice.

Talk about stirring a pot. Every statement made above is incorrect. Guess your kid couldn’t make the team.

Express East is not stating what tuition is nor exactly who coaches are for team. Not buying into a club which cant be upfront.

They are not a top team at all. They had tryouts already. Only 26 kids showed up. They have some good teams but there 2026 team is not that great. Go look how they did at their tournaments last year. They stayed away from the big ones and didn’t do well at the smaller ones

Sorry I know they are only 10 and hate to say this but they were not to good. Don’t think they played 91, express , igloo at all. They dodge all the big tournaments like Lax fest and any 91 tournaments maybe this year. But good luck to them and play hard boys !!

I would steer clear of them. Many teams fell apart this year because woman running club is obnoxious. She keeps overpressuring people for constant nonstop fundraisers. You end up paying out of your own pocket for these so your at that 3k mark anyway. And if your team doesnt do it, she threatens to cut those kids from the team.
Bad environment.

A few years back when this years graduating grade '18's were in 5th , 6th, 7th grade there was a team not considered to be elite just a local team. That team eventually got splintered, after many kids got poached and the organization folded into another.

But many of those boys who were in 5th and 6th grade were told the same as many of these posts. turns out the core of that team won the states and many of those boys are preparing for college lacrosse.

Don't get caught up on what they say the level is, in 5th/6th grade use your judgement. Just make sure they play and get coached in practice. If your son doesn't play (see the field) then leave. The only way you get better is by playing on the field. If your son is the best on the field, others will notice and you will notified if another team wants to Poach your son (and that is okay - it is your decision to stay or go).


I would say in 7th and 8th grade is where you want to try and position your son (not 5th and 6th). If you like where you are stay, if not then try to get him more exposure. but again it is playing time your son needs. What I would also say is, what is lost in many of the youth teams. Try to be on a team with potential HS teammates. The more the merrier. If you are a Defender try to get with your goalie or another defender/LSM. If attck/Middie get with someone you will play with. This servers many purposes. 1). Its better to go through all of this with a lifelong friend and 2). you will build and maintain field presence.

Good luck with your journey. it is long and at times questionable. but it is your journey (and as the saying goes, its the journey not the destination) define it as best as you can.


One thing I will say - I am so glad the recruiting rules changed. I believe in 2015 something changed and the recruiting sped up (as well as much of the shadiness).

Wow, a very well-written and thoughtful post, and nobody has mocked it yet! wink

I agree with the bottom line, which is bring your child to a team with a coach who will help teach & develop your kid, whether or not they win much, and makes it fun for them, and make sure your kid sees the field.

Five years from now, your kid will fondly remember that they had fun playing and getting better, whether they won or lost... But they won’t look back fondly, if they sat the whole time, as a ten year old, even if their team won a lot of tournaments in 2018... it’s a long journey!

How has the whole Outlaws and Rebels thing affected this age group? I understand there are differences in what each program is looking to be/offering but have been hearing a lot of movement between the two at other levels. Mostly due to coaching changes. Did a lot of the Outlaw kids leave? Sons team played Outlaws last year. They were pretty solid for a second tier team.

Tryouts had a mix of helmets. So dont think the Rebels team at this age will be predominantly from any particular club.
My son registered for Rebels, and he was never on Outlaws.

There were a bunch of Outlaw helmets/players at their supplemental camp. Not as many at the tryout last week. A couple at S2S tryouts also. Could mean they've lost a few.

Well final tryouts for Rebels is this weekend for those still looking.

So after that everyone will see during the season how both organizations teams turned out.

We went to rebel’s tryout. They are great with communications and answering questions. . They had about 20-25 at each but some of the kids at the tryout looked like new players(at this age group). I think they could have a good season if they re evaluate the tournaments they plan to enter. They are currently planning to enter all the A tournaments

That would be a big mistake to enter all A tournaments. Obviously i'm basing this without seeing the team but there is no way they will compete with some of these A teams. It could be pretty disheartening to the kids.

That would be a big mistake to enter all A tournaments. Obviously i'm basing this without seeing the team but there is no way they will compete with some of these A teams. It could be pretty disheartening to the kids.


I was at tryouts to. There was a mix of talent, but you really do see that at all tryouts.
Whats great is they are guaranteeing no more than 22 players. Plus they said they would be keeping the number lower than that possibly, because they want the players to be a good fit.
So they are not just looking to accept a player for the money.

Not sure where you get that they are defenitely entering A bracket only.
Tournament schedule is set, but when we asked the question on bracket they said it will depend on the level of the kids on the team.
And of course for any team brackets can change as they develop.

For me having Hagens and Schroeder coaching is such an advantage.
They were phenomenal at tryouts with the kids. You can get much better.
And they are supposed to get a 3rd coach as well.

Anyway I committed my son, and I feel it was a really good decision.

Keeping the number under 22 because they want the players to be a good fit? You must drink a lot of Kool Aid. If it’s under 22, it’s because hey didn’t have enough players commit or don’t have enough talent. Congrats to your kid on finding a team but please be realistic. Next you’ll tell us they’re not money hungry and don’t “need” to fill 22 spots. Any new organization with only one team per level should be filling rosters as best possible. If losses start accruing, people stop showing up.

22 kids is an okay number, but not necessarily optimal for a lacrosse team.
18-20 is far better. The kids will get a lot more turns at practice, and play much more in tournaments.

Too many teams now are overloading there rosters just so the organization can make more money and pad the directors pockets. Many of these teams are puting 24-30 kids on a team.
They are only doing a disservice to the kids who stand around way too much at practices, and sit on the bench at tournaments instead of playing.

Tryouts had a mix of helmets. So dont think the Rebels team at this age will be predominantly from any particular club.
My son registered for Rebels, and he was never on Outlaws.

There were a bunch of Outlaw helmets/players at their supplemental camp. Not as many at the tryout last week. A couple at S2S tryouts also. Could mean they've lost a few.

Outlaws had much smaller turnout than Rebels did at each of their first couple of tryouts. They've definitely lost kids.


Well final tryouts for Rebels is this weekend for those still looking.

So after that everyone will see during the season how both organizations teams turned out.


Who would even go to the Rebels?


Lots

For what it’s worth, Rebels directors told people long before the tryouts that their organization had a cap at 22 players, and that ideally they’d have 21. We spoke to them in June, and they were extremely open and responsive. We ended up choosing another organization for my son, but the Rebels were very upfront with their communication.. try calling Team 91 directors, before their tryouts, and get them to commit to a “22 player max!”

Max would be 22.
Not sure of current number, but I guess prior poster may have called and asked.
They sent out email to everyone who was registered for tryouts that they can call and ask what positions are left if someone was interested in trying out.

You cant get more honest and upfront then that. No other team will let you know that info.

In my case, it was a perfect fit for my son. And I appreciate all the honesty from them.

You can continue to say me and many others are fake, but thats just not the case.
Believe what you want. We are just honestly sharing our experiences.

Look back in thread. There was a whole discussion about Legacy Eels.
There is a reason enrollment is low.
- limited tournaments last year
- seemed to avoid higher level tournaments
- did not do well in tournaments they did attend

Plus Legacy is having serious issues with their teams at all age levels.

This is not fake news at all. The organization has completely destroyed their own business. It’s actually fascinating to watch. If you flash a few bucks in front of their faces they will do whatever you want. And if you win every tournament They will take down the entire team and say the “need to “change the culture”.

I think the point wasn’t that the Rebels or Team 91 had 21 players on their roster. It was that the Rebels were happy to discuss that with parents and commit to that before the tryouts.. communication and clarity from the owner.. parents appreciate that, whether or not the Rebels have a good team this year.

Re: Boys 2026-5th Grade Fall 2018/Summer 2019 - 08/19/18 05:20 PM

91 was able to lower their roster from 27 to 21 this season by raising the season price tag to just over $3,900. Up from $2,800 last season.

Express raised their roster from 27 to 30 this season and has a price tag of $3,900. Up from $3,800 last season.

Note to self... check out how many boys are on the sideline for 91 Storm at next summers tournaments, and then add ten to that total, and voila!

At $4000 a kid, it’s not impossible that they will carry just 21. But call me skeptical. (Reminder on Google calendar for June 2019 to see how this turns out)

How about Express supposedly starting with 30!! I'm sure they will add to that number as well. 30 is just so ridiculous.

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 [ChillLaxin] 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.

- 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 [ChillLaxin] 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.


You sir is on the wrong board with your logic and sound advice. I agree with you 100%. My son left a pretty good team so he can have time to also play basketball and i could not be happier he made that decision.

Look back in thread. There was a whole discussion about Legacy Eels.
There is a reason enrollment is low.
- limited tournaments last year
- seemed to avoid higher level tournaments
- did not do well in tournaments they did attend

Plus Legacy is having serious issues with their teams at all age levels.
not all levels. Fake news.


Correction: multiple levels
I know of at least 3.
Not fake news at all.

They are hurting , 2023 team didn’t qualify For the WSYL this year , very limited on the equipment you pay for the cost of tution. They train at a swamp of a field at East Islip and raise there tution $350 for what ? Too many daddy coaches.

So, Its fake news.
1- 2026 practiced at Islip HS or Chicago Park last year.
2- Just because they only went to 1 "My Lacrosse Tournament" tourney to line 91's pockets doesn't mean they didn't go to top tourneys. All the others were against teams from MD, NJ and CT. So more fake news. They didn't go and play the same teams and beat up on Moose lax, Empire, the Ducks, then get a t-shirt. They did loose to 91 and Express, but the games were very respectable. They are either 3 or 4 at this age group, equal to Igloo. But them and Igloo could beat the others on any given day.
This sounds like the same guy that cries about Legacy all the time.
3-The coaches are "daddy" coaches. But look at their resume, and they are former college players or varsity coaches.
4-They practice a ton.
5-My son loves the team and has grown playing for them.

In the spring the eels went 5-7-2 , fl$ 2-1-2 , million 1-3 , prime time 2-3. Not sure how they did in the Fall but I know they didn’t win much. Keep spending 3k , with that record for spring guess your College players and varsity coaches did real good for you. EELS just admit your a B level team.

Not that you are stalking 9/10 year old boys. But... name one team besides the 3 mentioned that are better than them? They played in the A brackets and went .500. The roster is small and they get good playing time, unlike a 30 man roster. They play good competition and my son loves the coaches and teammates. They are a lot cheaper than 91, Express and Igloo. I do think they are all way too expensive.

Seems like a lot of clubs are stepping it up on the coaching front and trending away from daddy ball. Less conflict of interest in not having kids on the team; better quality coaching. At this age group, Express brought on Wieczorek for B team, Rebels brought in Hagans, Igloo brought on Blake Miller. Any other teams making changes and going this route?

1-Last kid, not first. So I am letting him play where he loves his coaches and teammates.
2- Still $1K+ cheaper than Express, 91, or Igloo.
3-20 player roster, plenty of playing time.
4- Coaches' resumes speak for themselves. Furthermore, the coaches will be there long term, have a ton of practices, and we have no issue with favoritism.
5- Either you have really fat fingers or you were hitting the PBR early with that illiterate response.

Coaches resume? What, is he an elementary school teacher that has knowledge about lacrosse? Don't get hung up on all that resume talk at this age, let alone at any age. Just because someone may have been a stand out player, doesn't necessary mean he can teach/coach the game.

There’s no secret as to why legacy doesn’t post any coaches on their website. The only club that does not let parents know who’s coaching. Nope, just pay and roll the dice!

I have no idea what their compensation is. My point above was a response to the fat fingered guy. People may have had bad experiences with "daddy" coaches, as I had in the past. I was referring to our experience with these coaches on this particular team. There is no favoritism, and they run a very good practice and my son is developing nicely and gets plenty of playing time. Some people on here are obsessed with this organization. If you moved on, be happy, but apparently you are not and have to justify your move. We moved on from another team, wish them well, and take ownership of our decisions.

The Legacy topic will end when the Legacy coaches stop posting!!!! It's blatantly obvious with their "resume" talk, and they don't play "Daddy ball", and the obligatory "my kid loves them and loves playing for them" and "We won't line the pockets of 91!!!" Same post every time but in different order.

Enough already!! Post the names and resumes of the Legacy coaches because nobody knows who they are!!!! If the 91 tournaments are so beneath you then go there and win them!!!!!

At this grade level on Long Island you are a B team unless you play, and compete with Express (Haugen & Lemma), Igloo, & 91. Sad but true. Other than those 4 teams the competition locally is non-existent.

Please reply with the coaches names & resumes and not the normal nonsense!

Right now, for 2026 teams, Haugen, 91, Igloo are clearly 1-2-3. And you’re right that you have to compete with these teams, to be considered above a B Tteam. But these are also ten year old kids. Many kids that are on nobody’s radar right now will soon start to emerge. Nobody really knows which teams will step up and be competitive with these teams over the next year or two. But there will be competition coming...

Everyone knows things can change. I think they're obviously referring to right now. No one could possibly predict the future. Look at almost every other A team that these clubs field. They're all 1, 2, & 3. I couldn't imagine them dropping far, if at all.

An earlier post referenced how the Rebels were going to keep a max of 22 players with 21 ideally. Just saw they would conduct another supplemental tryout looking to fill 4 additional spots. Not enough commits? It can’t be them looking for the right fit or talent at this point. The talent has committed elsewhere. Tough at this point for any team to find key players. Even without there being a Rebels-Outlaws connection, they both seem to be in same boat.

Very likely that the top three wouldn’t drop to a lower level, if for no other reason than they have large tryouts, and there are plenty of players looking to play for them. They can survive a few players leaving, better than the others. The more interesting question to me is ‘Who will be the teams that step up, and at least become competitive with LI 2026 AA teams?” I’d say it’s not going to be the teams struggling to get fifteen players at its tryouts.. look for a team getting more like 40 or players or more at their tryouts.. I am sure everyone notices the barrage of emails the past few weeks, from lax teams with plenty of positions that they still need to fill! They aren’t coming from 91, Express, or Igloo..

Last email said that the 2026 Rebels need four more players.. but their regular tryouts were actually into August (they had the supplemental camp in July). I’m sure plenty of kids were committed by that point. But it’s the first year, and there really is no reputation established yet.. year two, will be a better barometer. Shore2Shore didn’t have many kids year one, but this year they had very large turnouts.. probably didn’t hurt making the WSYL..

There is no issue. Rebels had enough kids show for tryouts. But there were kids who didnt get offers. They wont do what some teams do, which is make offers just to fill the slots.
From Day 1 they told people the team would have somewhere between 18-22 players. It currently has 18 players. So they have 4 spots they will fill if they find the right players. If not, the team is fine at 18.
And there are plenty of teams in past that have found quality players into the fall and spring. Thats why so many teams have advertised they are doing additional tryouts.

For those of you on these B and C organization teams of the big organisations, you should seriously be looking at bailing out soon and looking somewhere else. They are looking like they will be a complete bust.

You are better off contacting the teams like Rebels, Outlaws, R$sh, Turtles, etc... that may have a few spots left and have them evaluate your kid to see if you are offered a spot.
You never know. Maybe one of them is able to work out something on tuition to offset the initial deposit if you made one.

Well, after reading the comments on this thread I will say there are some very good points being made. My son is on a travel team. I would say a low level "B" team and I am happy. Nice kids, great parents. I actually would rather spend more time with them then my town team. My son, I would say is going to take time to develop. What I mean by that is there are some kids I see on the town team that are very, very good. My son lacks the maturity right now to say I need to keep up. He loves the game so I am not going to just wait for PAL every spring. I see improvement every year which is all i can honestly ask for. I don't think my son would get much out of joining the big three. He is 9 years old. Having played travel sports my whole life I saw good kids at a young age just quit as they got older. They wanted to spend time with there friends, interested in girls, other sports. So i am not worried he isn't exactly the superstar at his age level. Nobody remembers the goals you scored when you are 9.

My comment is more for advise about Box Lacrosse. Does anyone play it? Does anyone have recommendations? My son really wants to play and I think its a great idea. It will make his stick skills better and help his quickness improve. I am just wondering where to go? I know IGLOO has there own program and I think team 91 does as well. I have seen advertisements on BOTC for one program and i know of another program but that is it. Any assistance would be great.

I recommend doing Box Lacrosse with North of the Border (NOTB). They offer a few different services through out the winter time and also the summer time at a very affordable rate considering they have to pay the indoor costs. NOTB is an affiliate of Legacy Lacrosse.

You should avoid Island Box. Last year was a fiasco. I know people who went through it. Langtry disappeared in January and wasnt around for tournaments. And left some grades with coaches who were not good at all, and had a horrible tournament where kids were throwing up at the end, and these coaches got endless penalties for the coach fighting with the refs, and coach forfeited championship game on the kids.

Plus Langtry told everyone he was away due to dealing with old concussion issues. In actuality he was drinking and got in car accident and fled the scene. Newspaper in Denver just recently reported.

Would not want my kid a part of that.

Stick to North of the Border.

Big ? at this point. They were looking for some additional kids a week ago. Never know what they ended up with. I'm sure someone will come on saying how great they look and how good they'll be but, realistically, no one will know until they line up against others. They may have minimal competition at the Blatant fall tourney which could help build confidence if they can win.

Its not a secret. Read through the blogs and you will find the discussions where tuition costs for clubs were listed.

Enough with this legacy team , must be a new parent from a team that there kid didn’t make , the team was a B team last year that played in a A tournaments and lost more than they won because they go away and don’t stay on the island and play 91 express igloo and still lost out of state. Stop saying they look great who really cares.

Who cares.
At this point the majority have committed their kids to a team. Hopefully you have some good coaches, play in some fun tournaments, and your kid improves. Relax and have fun watching your 10-11 year old play. Otherwise you are wasting the little time you have with your kid while he is young.
Have a great season.

People care. 35+ kids are on the Express team. I will say the team goes non stop and practice wise it’s a ton. So is it better to be on a team that has the minimum number of practices or be on team that has like 50-70 practices and playing time is tough to come by.

Still an absurd amount to carry. What's the benefit in that for the players/parents? Paying all that money just to say your with Express or 91.

While I agree the rising price of these organizations is getting out of hand this year. Ill respond with an example using my family. I have 2 sons. One is a very good player (still has much to learn) and plays for one of the top teams in this age group. My older son who is a good player but doesn't play for a top tier team as he didn't make it so he is playing for a smaller organization but a decent club. We pay more than double the price of my younger son than my older. What we get for the money is night and day.
-youngest practices / trains 3 days a week while my oldest practices once a week. (this is key)
-youngest gets 3 coaches, 1 for each position. None of the coaches have kids on the team, oldest gets 2 coaches. One is a great coach the other is a Dad coach
-youngest gets 10 tournaments while my oldest will get 6.
-Swag items, my youngest gets everything. my youngest gets a uniform, shooting shirt.

My family is not rich by any means but when it comes to my sons wanting to play and allowing them to play and train to the best of their abilities I think the choice is clear when I had to make it.

I do think there are people (parents mostly) that throw around the fact that their son plays for 91, Express thinking it a thing of stature. I cant stand those people.And trust me my youngest has a few of them on his team.

Now if my youngest says to me next season I don't want to play anymore I may just disown him! LOL It would hurt (a lot) but in the end I do all of this for them. And I want them to be excited for what ever they do.

Yeah and paying 4K plus for each team . Who cares stop living thru your kid. Bet your kid never rides his bike too.


People care. 35+ kids are on the Express team. I will say the team goes non stop and practice wise it’s a ton. So is it better to be on a team that has the minimum number of practices or be on team that has like 50-70 practices and playing time is tough to come by.


28 on Express. 91 will have the same number +/- 1 or 2.


Still an absurd amount to carry. What's the benefit in that for the players/parents? Paying all that money just to say your with Express or 91.

10 tournaments is way too much. Guess every weekend in spring and summer your on the lacrosse field with either son. I belive no kid at 10 years old rather go to the beach , splish slash , BBQs at home insead of playing 10 tournaments .

No we still have our weekends. At his age they generally play on Sat late / mornings (though this will change this year). We usually have the rest of Sat and Sundays. If hes not at Lacrosse on the weekends hes out riding his bikes, playing wiffle ball in the street with friends. And haven't missed a bbq yet! Yes we don't go to the beach but that because I hate the beach. lol

Having 10 tournaments makes it sound like you're getting your money's worth. But if your kid is on the 4th or 5th line, its just covering up the real issue of having such a large squad and getting minimal playing time when there's a blowout. Kids at this age are better served getting training they need and doing half the amount of tournaments.

10 tournaments is not a lot. 2 or 3 fall, 2 or 3 Winter/Spring (box or field), and 5 Summer. You can do that and still be done be the first or second week of July. Get on a team that offers that and it'll be easier to cut that club check.

I was the one that responded. Yes the 10 is broken up between Fall, Spring and Summer.

Wasn't there talk of them combining with the Outlaws for a second team at his age level... or possibly taking on more for their one. The 2025 Knights partnered with the Outlaws... they even register under their site.

Thats not actually accurate about 2025 Knights. They no longer exist, but are spread across a number of teams. There really was no merge.

How are kids moving from Rebels? They just started up. Doesn't make sense. "Players" being plural... so multiple kids have already moved on to other teams?

2026 Rebels are still together. Just trying to work out best practice time for all players, sinxe so maby of us also play fall sports. They practice twice a week right now, plus organization added for all teams 2026-2031 three dates in October for additional training clinics.
2025 Rebels has practice time at same time as 2026. So one time the coaches decided to train them together.
Too funny. Do you send scouts to spy on other teams? Are you not happy where you are?

Do the Rebels and Outlaws practice at same places? This sounds like an Outlaw parent or coach trying to create negative buzz about the Rebels. Pretty obvious someone saw that combined practice and made it seem like it was a bigger thing than it was by saying they team folded/merged.

Both teams are based in the Huntington area. Maybe the Rebels 2026 and Outlaws 2026 will get to go at it in the Tristar tournament? Cue to announcer “Brawl at Mitchel Field! Only one Huntington team will walk with local bragging rights!”

Or, we can just let the kids play lacrosse and have fun..

Sorry all that must of been true about Legacy EELs there is trouble there sorry to say !!! They will run off LI again the rest of the year and not face top teams in 2026. Even off LI they don’t win. Too many daddy coaches .

You're an stunad.



Coaches resume? What, is he an elementary school teacher that has knowledge about lacrosse? Don't get hung up on all that resume talk at this age, let alone at any age. Just because someone may have been a stand out player, doesn't necessary mean he can teach/coach the game.


Do daddy coaches get paid or free tuition or both ? I have seen favoritism with daddy coaches , they play it off like they are harder on there kid but game situation there son is in before someone else most of the time.

I have no idea what their compensation is. My point above was a response to the fat fingered guy. People may have had bad experiences with "daddy" coaches, as I had in the past. I was referring to our experience with these coaches on this particular team. There is no favoritism, and they run a very good practice and my son is developing nicely and gets plenty of playing time. Some people on here are obsessed with this organization. If you moved on, be happy, but apparently you are not and have to justify your move. We moved on from another team, wish them well, and take ownership of our decisions.


Well said.
Best of luck in the season.



Yes good luck this year Legacy lol !!! Crazy parents B team . All talk remember

Re: Boys 2026-5th Grade Fall 2018/Summer 2019 - 10/12/18 06:16 PM

Rebels 2026 parent here... There definitely is a team. Perhaps there are some growing pains mixed with the time of the year and conflicts with other sports, but it's been rare so far to have the whole team at practice at once. The directors have addressed this. I don't think anyone is happy about that. I think the team has talent, but after just one month the team hasn't had the reps as a team/unit to have any kind of chemistry. They will surely be far behind any team with a bunch of core players returning from previous years. I think the practices have been productive for those that have been consistently attending. I'm not thrilled, but not close to throwing in the towel either. Personally, I look at the fall as preseason for the real season in the spring/summer. I believe there are 18 players on the roster. They said they would not add kids just for the sake of rounding out the roster and it looks like that is the case. As I said the kids at the practices look pretty good to me.

I think its realistic for them to be in the B bracket. Its not realistic to think a brand new organization is going to have the right players to play in A or AA brackets. Those kids are already on A or AA teams and not leaving for a startup regardless of the marketing lure of gear they receive. It will take some time for a well-rounded team to develop. In the meantime, they shouldn't place themselves in a situation where they fail right from the start. From a business perspective, doing that just leads to kids wanting to leave after a year... then its a scramble to field a team again. Separately, it seems odd you feel the need to call out MB... there must be some animosity there -- possibly a former or even current Outlaw?

Are Rebels playing in Tristar Octoberfest? It looks like there won’t be a B division. Registered for , as of now, are: Igloo Dire Wolves, Shore2Shore Raiders, Outlaws, LI rebels, and Long Island Knights. Plus Express Haugen played last year, and many teams are still registering, so one could guess they’ll be back.

Three of those would be legit A teams, so maybe everyone can see how they fare..

You’re clearly a delusional dad if you think there’s three A teams in this list. Igloo and Express, yes. Any of those others, no. Probably think you’re kid is an A player and he’s on one of those other squads...so there’s no way he can be on a B team.

Im another rebel parent ....
And there is defenitely a team. And there never was a thought of combining with 2027. 2027 has a full team.
Fall is always tough on practices in any organisation because of other teamsports commitments such as football and soccer most of all. 2026 has had a hard time getting a schedule that works for everyone. So it got off to a slow start. But its coming together.
What I can say is Hagens and Schroeder are amazing coaches. And the kids that come work there butts off. And these kids do have 2 practices a week. Many teams only do 1 in the fall. Plus MB has also added 3 October clinics so thats additional time for kids to work on their skills.
The goal of course is to be in the A division, but this is the fall and with the slow startup and the need for the kids to gel more, the B division is the right choice for this tournament.
Whats good is the decisions are being made based on whats best for the kids, not just because the organisation wants to be listed as an A team on the books.
The focus is to create elite teams. That means making the right choices along the way,creating the right path, so the kids improve skillwise, gel as a team, and grow confident. Then they will become an elite team.
And when you have concerns, MB, Taylor, and the coaches are always willing to talk and be up front. How many teams that you know have that open communication?

There are “A” teams (or “AA”” as some call them) and then there’s teams that play in the “A” division. Only two (maybe 3) “AA” teams on Long Island. We all know who they are.

Whoever creatwd the game schedule for Halloween Havoc didnt do a very good job.
Epic Jokers only ended up in that championship game because they played the 3 weakest teams for their initial games.
If they had played Roar or Greenwich they would have lost. It would have been far more interesting to see those teams against Force in the championship game.
The organizers should have recruited one more team and then had an A and B bracket. If not, do a much better job setting up games.

2026 Outlaws will win the Octoberfest in a cakewalk. Book it! Very underrated, and still tough despite the Rebels trying to pick the team apart. Beware the skull & crossbones!

Annapolis won both of their games. Kind of expected since they have 5 12 year olds. LI Express beat North. DC Express was also there.

That’s okay! Any post mentioning Epic Jokers is probably relevant here.. plenty of Epic Jokes being posted for this 2026 thread.. seriously, the situation you described happens all too often.. a division with six teams or more, but only three guaranteed games, means some team will miss playing the two best teams.. and if the the two best teams play each other, one probably won’t have a chance to make the final.. maybe they need to seed some of these tournaments?

There is a DC Express in the 2026 age? I thought those kids stayed with BLC until they got to high school.

Anybody know how many players that Express B team is carrying? If they have 19 or 20, and the kids are learning and playing a lot, and they’re getting legit coaching, that’s a very different thing than if they carry 25+ and they’re paying for the Express name..

They have a small roster and an outstanding coach. You can't get better than that and he is hands on and coaches them up. Problem is... that team was a not good last year and they had to rebuild and didn't attract a lot of talent at tryouts. And rebuilding a B team is hard because parents worry about the attention the team gets.

Respectfully disagree. There was plenty of talent at tryouts. There was close to 60 kids. My kid is a B team player. I would have gladly had him play on the B team if they weren’t charging an insane price for the B team(also the same price as the A team). Us B team parents know the A team is gonna get more attention. As a result the B team should be less money than the A.

The problem is that the A team takes too many players, so you have no chance of the B team getting any talent. Thats why the Express B teams go no where.
And for that price you should have 3-4 coaches. If you dont have that your wasting your money.

That’s not really the problem. The problem is the price. Why pay 3800 when I can go to another b level club for half the cost. The rebel’s was 2600 for the season (no I’m not mike Brennan.). True blue 2300, legacy 3000. If they lowered their price they would get god kids to stay

The market has grown saturated.. There is no way even the top clubs can keep increasing costs 10-15% a year. We are at peak club lacrosse. Consumers need to ask themselves if it makes sense to pay over $3k for potentially up to 10yr just for the shot at 'maybe' getting a partial scholarship for college.
Economic reality should matter.
I have a max amount i'm willing to spend each year for my son's travel that i simply wont go beyond. If my club's tuition increases beyond that - I will look elsewhere ..

Long Island Lacrosse Club is a new youth club based from the Adult Club Long Island Lacrosse based out of Port Washington, but have roslyn and manhasset kids also, and are looking for more players as well. Coach is Steve Sombrotto. My son is in the program and it is in depth, August through late June. (takes off the summer months so kids including mine can enjoy camp.) Play a ton of tournaments 3 or 4 in fall , 5 in the spring, Fall league, Ton of gear, all for $1400. Cant beat it, and team is well coached and competitive.

Not so sure. I think if the team is good and the coaching is good, people would pay. People pay just practice with teams.

Most were there for the A team and would not accept the B team. Meaning they couldn’t attract families from tryouts. Even with a varsity coach of a nationally ranked program, it was talent more than cost. That team will be good and will likely add a few players.

That is bogus about the Hawks having 12 year olds. I was on the sidelines and a group of LI dads started complaining about the hawks having hold backs as soon as the game got out of hand. One LI dad, maybe you, came back to watch part of the Express North game and complained that our bench was different, implying that we added 2025 players. The 2026 kids didnt even leave the bench as they had back to back games.

Can you confirm that these are the same players on the Hawks as last year? If so, a parent told me personally that there "are 3 or 4" 11 year olds on the team. That would make them 12 this year depending other birthday.

There can definitely be 11 year olds on the team, just like ANY 2026 team. There are kids with fall birthdays you know. As far as the same kids, who knows?? does any team return the same kids every year?

So a parent told you that they had 3-4 11 year olds and you post on here that they have 5 12 year olds? Like I said, there is something as a fall birthday.

No one checks and there are fall birthdays, but some take liberties and fall birthdays turn into summer birthdays which turn into, well I guess the kid could be left back, it does become a little ridiculous.
The only thing that matter should be calendar year birthday. You should only be allowed to play on a 2026 team if you are born in 2008. 2007 you should be on a 2025 team. Period.

Wrong, the vast majority, like 47 of 50 states have laws that say to start Kindergarten you have to turn 5 befor 10/1 of that year. In Maryland you start K if you turn 5 by 8/31. Yes, some of the Hawks will turn 11 this fall and early winter, but none are 12.

It was actually from the referee that there was 5 kids on the Hawks that were 12 right now. The referee commented to the Annapolis coach that he had some big kids. The coach replied that 5 were 12.

That's not how it works. There's different age kids in every grade. So a fall bday kid has to play up, what happens to him when the grade ahead of him graduates and he wants to play lacrosse the summer before his senior year?

Most of Maryland football is 7u, 8u, 9u and so on. You need a state issued ID to play and it's checked pre game each week. Maybe lacrosse will have to get there eventually.

Can only speak about the express north team. Yes that was their top north 26 team.Why they made them make the trip with only 13 players and without their best players who were playing football is very strange. Also a 7 hour round trip for 2 games...

I don t doubt for a minute that all the boys on the Hawks are 2026’s. What all of us here on LI have issue with is that all the boys are older and more mature that we have to play. 12-18 months at these developmental ages is huge. I was at the Hawks game and several of those boys were obviously older and more mature than then the Express kids. Please don’t argue that point. Own it. You aren’t breaking any rules but why the BS that every one Is 9-10 like the boys on Express, or any of the Long Island teams. Please.....

The oldest child on The Hawks 2026 team turned 11 in July. He did not even play in the Express North game. Funny thing is, he is the smallest player on the team. There are in fact 5 players that are 11, the rest are 10. Most of the team are returnkng players from last year, and the core group has been there since the beginning 3 years ago.

Children go through growth spurts at different ages. It is sad that there were parents complaining as soon as the game started. Complaining that kids have calf muscles...seriously, that is your basis on how old a kid is? Aside from that, it was good to play a team such as those express teams. They a a talented group of boys with plenty of good lacrosse ahead for them.

You’re missing the whole point. If the state of Maryland says you start K if you turn 5 by 8/31, well what if the parents hold their kids back, and don’t start him in school until the following year? Or a kid is held back for academic reasons? That’s obviously a huge advantage, short term, especially at this age, if they’re playing with a younger grade. But long-term, being held back actually hurts development.. big fish/small pond...

Express does the same thing to other teams, they are always looking for older bigger kids,. Dont hate the player hate the game. I agree move toward a U system at the time of the event. If you age out, then you go on another team, best way to do it, most fair way. I dont mind my kids playing with older kids, in fact i encourage it, only will make them better, only drawback is when there is physicality that kids maybe a year or year and a half older bring that someone could get hurt. I would never understand why anyone would want to play younger weaker kids, but it happens.

LI folks need to realize bigger, strong, faster athletes are starting to play the game. these kids may in fact get held back if they go to private school. what then? the days of average athletes playing lacrosse at a high level will be over when this group gets to college. by the way, will still be a way less athlete than football and basketball...

Where to begin? Besides the nasty stereotype and slur about “LI folk”, and the ignorant, snarky comment (and possibly racist or at least culturally demeaning insinuation about LI lacrosse players) about the great new athletes playing lacrosse still being “way inferior” to football and basketball players.. you completely contradict yourself. You state that the new “great athletes” coming in will mean that average Long Island kids, who have been playing and dominating lacrosse because they have been training for it, will be knocked out, because all top players will need to be great athletes, and the LI kids were skating by with lesser talent...

Yet at the same time, you criticize people who simply don’t want a much older kid playing down to dominate younger kids. Holding back a kid at 17 or 18 isn’t nearly the same as holding back a 10 year old kid. HUGE difference, and unfair, and especially prevalent in other geographic areas, which already have an advantage by pushing up cutoff dates..

Its a notIntelligent conversation. Long Island Players will always be great players because they are into it and have great coaching. same reason there are so many great hockey players come out of simbury ontario. If teams choose to play kids that are older against younger kids it only helps the younger kids more. dont worry about the wins and losses just worry about competitive lacrosse, and if older kids or parents rather need that for their ego, they are actually only hurting their kids.
More importantly what tournaments are there this weekend or games? what divisions etc. likely outcomes???

baltimore players know they can’t compete, so that’s why they don’t go to WSOL, they were blown out by Long Island players the first year and never wanted to compete again, because there are age rules.
Keep playing in the tournaments that allow you to be one two or three years older.

Express Haugen,
Igloo Dire Wolves,
LI Outlaws,
LI rebels,

Rebels 2026,

My thoughts are that the Balto-DC area clubs (and Boston) do so much holding back and mercenary wrangling for big tourneys that you wonder if integrity means anything.

1. 91
2. Express
3.Igloo
4. Roar
5. Express North

6-10 could be Shore to Shore, Outlaws, Rebels, Long Island Lacrosse Club, Rockville Centre

That braveheart was crazy,, each team had at least one chance at the goal, I think maybe that person put them a little lower in their rankings because they got smoked at the same tournament by express, I guess you could say Express 91 Igloo are clearly three in some fashion, but who would you put after that to fill out the top 10?

Those three are the top 3 teams. My son does not play on either of the 3 but has played against them. As an outsider it would seem to be Express, 91 Orange, Igloo, and then a fall off of teams that could beat each other any given game. Express North, Harveys, Moose, Outlaws, Shore 2 Shore, Legacy, Roar... Once outside of that it doesn't really matter.

Nobody can argue that the Express and 91 2026 teams were the best two on Long Island last year. And Igloo had probably been the best (in 2026) the two previous years, so they clearly knew that they needed to make changes and adapt this year (and Igloo did make a lot of major changes).. so we can expect those three at the top this year; but as you see in other age groups, as kids hit ~fifth grade, new kids who were afterthoughts in past years start to get their mojo. And many players move to other teams for opportunity to develop, so you do see a reshuffling of the deck. My opinion is you’ll see one or two other teams start to separate from that lower tier, and at least be somewhat competitive with the top three. Without naming names, look for organizations that had larger talent pools to pick from this year, and that have had significant turnover...

Probably the same guy who talks about Shore 2 Shore having 60+ kids at tryouts including a dozen Igloo helmets. His kid probably moved over there and its significant.

Shore 2 shore will have their chance this weekend. the tournament will show where teams are at. Igloo is competing express and some others. between last week and this week you will get an idea. I do agree, as these main teams continue to carry so many people, kids will leave and go and there might be a little bump in some of the other teams. I am not sure it will dilute the top 3 all that much though, Club lacrosse is not using the NFL model where even the weaker teams move up quickly. lol

My son is on a 2026 team and is still 9 the end of November.

He sounds exceptionally young for his grade or playing up. That would have him turning 18 after Thanksgiving of his freshman year of college. If Lacrosse went to 9U, 10U, 11U, and so on there would still be 11 year olds playing on 10U teams at some point. My son plays for a 2026 team and just turned 11 the other day. He has never been reclassified, and will never be.

That's the age you're supposed to be unless you are held back or has a December birthday. It's always been that way. I have a September birthday. I started college at 17. My older son is 2026. He turned 10 in May. The oldest 2026 kid on our town team is still 10. He will be 11 this December.

2026 LILC (I.e., H’s Lax Club) has a very nice team. For what it was worth, two periods of the scrimmage in question were played by the Shore 2 Shore B squad, and two were played by the A squad. The score was 10-0 in the two periods against B team, and 3-2 against the A team. Not trying to minimize how good they looked though. Very well coached team, that passes the ball extremely well.. they’ll probably at least be competitive with Igloo and Express Haugen next weekend,

Not much of a difference when the older kids on one team are turning 11 in October vs December.

I think a team that finished 2-2 (lilc) at blatant fall jam( where none of the top team played) doesnt have a shot at beating any of the top teams

I agree, besides the top three there then there is a drop off with everyone chasing those three at least in 2026 year.

the next group i would say is probably express north legacy, roar, moose lax ,rebels then after that another rung down maybe knights shore 2 shore any others?????

Hawks will certainly be at the top but I am sure that other teams will come to play.

The weather is not looking good on Friday though. Hopefully those fields can handle it.

Again, no kids in the Hawks have been held back. Maybe the oldest can be a month or two older than a NY 2026 because of school date cut offs.

I wouldn't use that as an excuse. I was there and saw one of the express games. I'd say they made alot of unforced mistakes on the field that led to many turnovers. All 3 teams had impressive skill though.

Missing people? They have 31 kids on that team it shouldn’t matter when a few are missing no? Igloo looks good and LILC hung with Express. Looking forward to watching these teams compete in the Spring.

They have 27. Still a big team so definitely shouldn't be using "missing people" as an excuse.

Yes but if you are missing two of your best players it makes a difference on any team. All I am saying is that Long Island Lacrosse Club may have competed with Express but if Express had their two best guys who were missing it might not have ended in a tie.

The supposed "best team on LI for this age group" should not tie a team that was unheard of last year just by missing what you say might be their 2 best players. I'm not a LILC parent here. JMO

You will see express when they have all their players will be right with Igloo and 91 as the best teams in the area if not the best. I see it this way at this point, any thoughts,

1. 91
2. Igloo
3. Express
4. Roar
5. Legacy
6. Empire
7. Outlaws
8. Long Island LC
9. Moose Lax
10. Shore 2 Shore

Igloo could very well be the best team this year. Kids change. Kids switch teams. And kids grow. Or they recruit harder. Bottom line the whole grade is chasing the top 3 teams, and that wont change this year. 91didnt play any of the other big 2 in their tournament so hard to tell who the best is.

Bottom line is 91 Orange, Express Haugen and Igloo are the best 3 and will remain that way for the foreseeable future. Why continue to debate this?

I dont think that is the debate, I think the debate is who is in the next wave, and the wave after that in the division. What teams will challenge to break into that group and maybe make it a 4 or 5 way?

Why there are other clubs trying to play catchup. If people today weren't such front runners with no loyalty to people teams would balance out a bit, those top three look to pick off kids who might have been developed with other teams. if the kids were loyal and stayed and let their teams develop they would balance out. Watch how those top 3 teams rosters change over the course of the next 5 years.

Yes there are some strong town teams but that is because they are playing with the players from the clubs. If you put rockville centre against express but the rockville centre kids who are on express play with express, its not even close.

Sachem is an ok team, but take away all their players that are playing club and they become ordinary. If you want to call yourself a town team your kids should not be on clubs also. its misleading.

For some reason there are a few haters on here that just keep bashing them. No one else is winning against them besides those 2 you mentioned. And the scores are usually close and its a good game. 91 is above everyone else in this age group, so unless your son is a lax prodigy, they are not cracking that line up. Express and Legacy are usually 1/2 goal games.

Legacy beat the igloo team 5-3 in october,, lost badly to 91 and BBL,, so i dont know how anyone thinks they are better then the next 4 or 5 clubs,,, The top three are the top three because they advertise well and steal everyones talent.

But if you dont like to talk about the lax or the division or how good or competitive the teams are,,, then what the heck are you doing on a message board. that is the whole point of it.

they are more like 7. they would not beat CSH Roar.

Legacy takes a beating on here and I don't understand why. They are a scrappy team that always plays hard and at least attempts to play the "Big 3" from time to time. There is never any talk about the other club organizations that run multiple tournaments and put their teams in B brackets and lose to town teams. At least Legacy will try and challenge themselves and try to compete. Something to be said about that.

Town Teams that are excellent
CSH
RVC
Farmingdale
Massapequa
Sachem

All better than most club teams. Of course each team has a few high level club players on their rosters, hence the reason why they are very good. Like stated before, who cares. Town lacrosse is all but gone so good for the ones that still hold it down. I do not think its a stretch saying that all of those town teams, among a few others will have more wins than losses when they play in club tournaments this spring/summer season. Look at a few of the fall/winter results already.

You must be a bit of a mental case, nobody ever said anyone cant play this or that.
the point being made was comparing some town teams to some of the better club teams. what is misleading is that the stronger players will alway be the stronger players, so if they are playing with their town, their town team will be strong, if they are playing on a club that team will be strong as well by virtue of them being on the team. Rockville Centre is a strong team, and many of their guys play club. If their town teams plays without them they will not be as strong, and if their club team plays without them they would not be as strong. thats all, no one is saying they can do what they choose to do.

I dont see anyone bashing legacy, they have a nice program. Kids are into it and well coached. But i think the debate was about the division. Ok we know who the best three teams are,, great everyone else is chasing them, super,, i dont know why it is so taboo to talk about the next 7 teams and who people might feel are the ones closing the gap on the top 3. its a message board i thought that is what you are suppose to do. And if we talk about those 7 teams, it is somehow insulting to the top 3. Get it together people stop being so sensitive.

That technically would be cheating, and that would be a joke. But if you are playing a town tournament and everyone is from your town, or playing in the PAL league, everyone should be above board with the rules. I understand they are not but they should at least try to.

Town Teams that are excellent
CSH
RVC
Farmingdale
Massapequa
Sachem

All better than most club teams. Of course each team has a few high level club players on their rosters, hence the reason why they are very good. Like stated before, who cares. Town lacrosse is all but gone so good for the ones that still hold it down. I do not think its a stretch saying that all of those town teams, among a few others will have more wins than losses when they play in club tournaments this spring/summer season. Look at a few of the fall/winter results already.

Sachem is an ok team, but take away all their players that are playing club and they become ordinary. If you want to call yourself a town team your kids should not be on clubs also. its misleading.

Apparently, people are saying who should and should not play on town teams.

I think we can all agree that a kid not on a town team roster should not be brought in as a “ringer”. But I’m not sure that is what is being said here.

Club kids should of course play with their town teams.

[quote=Anonymous]You must be a bit of a mental case, nobody ever said anyone cant play this or that.
the point being made was comparing some town teams to some of the better club teams. what is misleading is that the stronger players will alway be the stronger players, so if they are playing with their town, their town team will be strong, if they are playing on a club that team will be strong as well by virtue of them being on the team. Rockville Centre is a strong team, and many of their guys play club. If their town teams plays without them they will not be as strong, and if their club team plays without them they would not be as strong. thats all, no one is saying they can do what they choose to do.

Thank you, Captain Obvious.

I think Garden City might be one of the only true town teams who play with kids that dont play club. So if the Garden City kid chooses to play club he doesnt play with their Town Club team. Dont think some of the other Roar rockville centre put that restriction on their town teams,

think the conversation was about wasting money on B/C level club lax when people are ignoring the importance of home town PAL lax , years ago there was 1 maybe 2 elite clubs and if you didnt make it , there was no B TEAM or some other crap travel team. My dad and mom were ok saying you didnt make it , practice harder with your PAL team and we try again next year !!! Some smart business men said lets develop a team of kids who cant catch and throw and call it CLUB LAX???? seriously .. my kid who only plays town/pal ball , tried out for 91 and didnt make it ...ok,,,so instead so i dont hurt his feelings i am going to waste 3 grand paying for a college kid who he doesnt know and kids he doesnt know and say my son plays club....hahahahaha ..sorry ..enjoy letting your son/daughter play with there friends at home ...ot FORT NITE ..ITS OK NOT BEING AN ATHLETE ..take a look at the dads on LEGACY sideline ,lol,,,apple doesnt fall far from tree ,,save your money,,play wall ball,,go to DISNEY with family

OK so your son did not make team 91. And you continue to have him play in the town PAL league. thats great. But If he finds a club to work with why is that so terrible. When you say town Spring PAL, that only goes from late march to June. What if you want him to play a little more in the summer, or play in some fall tournaments etc???? I dont know whats wrong with finding a club and dont know why anyone would bash any people for getting teams together and teaching kids how to play lacrosse. Now if you have an issue with particular clubs, and dont feel that they are providing what you think they should for the price, then you need to explore other clubs. Tru Blue is not 3 K. The knights are not 3k, I heard Long Island Lacrosse Club is less then 1500. If your town is offering lacrosse in the fall and winter that is a good option as well, but not every town is doing that.

Express Parent here.... Igloo will be better this year, 91 always puts good product out. Legacy will compete. Watching them play box with Express every week. They upgraded quite a bit. Fall ball means nothing. The best teams will rise in the BIG tournaments. 2026 age eligible for NLF Championship this year, Naptown will be big, Tri Star usually has good draw. Hopefully Igloo and Legacy get into bigger tournaments similar to NLF. I get the club politics, but playing teams like Laxaxhussetts, Annapolis Hawks, Bethesda... will show teams where they stand.

these out of state teams many play by different rules with the reclass and stuff,,

Keeping to the 4 in discussion here are my thoughts:

Three years ago...2016: (1) Igloo, (2) Legacy, (3) 91, (4) Express
Two Years ago.....2017: (1) 91, (2) Igloo, (3) Express, (4) Legacy
Last year..............2018: (1) Express (2) 91, (3) Igloo, (4) Legacy
This year............. 2019 (1/2) Will be battled out between Express, 91, and Igloo. Legacy will show drastic improvement after rebuilding last year.


There is no overly dominant team at this age. There are the top 3 (maybe 4) then everyone else. CSH Roar, RVC Futures town teams (who have many kids on all of the above are by far the best town programs I have seen)

These posts are by far the most sensible here. Those are the top 4 teams on LI, and no other club team is even close. I would argue the order of the top 3, but any of them could beat the other on any given day. All very talented clubs.

I think everyone agrees those are the top three. I still think there’s a big drop off after those three. I include legacy in that dropoff. Legacy is a nice program. But their team at this age group isn’t in the same league as those three

that's where you are wrong. legacy won the world series of lacrosse a few years ago, they have some good up and coming teams . The club is also more of a tight knitt family. Great training and good connections for your kids. do not listen to the hype of parents from 91 , playing for them is like buying good year tires. You pay for the name . You have to see the forrest through the trees.

Its funny how everyone keeps talking over the same thing over and over and over again. The top 3 are the top 3, I dont think anyone is disputing that, and you can choose who you may think is 1,2,3 but they are all in there, I personally think it is 91, igloo then express. But the question is who is next, not to belittle anyone, where does moose lax, legacy, shore 2 shore, outlaws, empire and others fit? How do they stack up and are there others that I am not mentioning????

Is there any talk of Nassau PAL and Suffolk PAL doing anything together? A tournament or all-star game vs. each other? The All-star thing would be tough because you'd have a coaches kid vs. coaches kid game but why not a cross county town tournament?

The club tournaments outside of the 4 team "A" brackets are town kids playing with kids from another town competing against true town teams (and losing). Why not just get the best town teams playing against each other? We would 100% see better competition overall and get more L.I. kids involved.

Too many of the flyby-night clubs travel off L.I. or play meaningless competition and who does that help and what cost does that add to the already high cost of lacrosse?

If anyone on here has sway with that you'd do more for our kids then arguing about Legacy. JMHO

It always seems to come down to the PAL leagues vs the clubs, i really don't know why it has to come to that. Remember the PAL league is something that runs for 3 months. For many clubs they are going most of the year like 11 months. If kids want to be committed to lacrosse dont know why they cant co exist.
Or why there is such vitriol about the town vs club situation. Some towns have tried to have their own club experiment. Some do ok with it.
But i would not bash all the clubs. I think many try to give kids a good path of a more competitive atmosphere of learning, and thats good.
If you want to argue with what they charge or how much they do you can debate that. Thats why parents need to do their homework on the clubs and see if a particular club is right for them, location, price, level, coaches, activity.

kids will shuffle around and end up on multiple teams. There are many many options but parents just have to do their homework to find the right situation for their kid.

Legacy crushed them every time they played them last year. Legacy handled Mooselax and any other LI team besides 91 and Express. They only scrimmaged Igloo last year. As any normal person like the several who expressed unbiased opinions above, 91, Express and Igloo are the top, and Legacy is the only other LI team that can compete with them and always plays in the A bracket. I rather have my son compete in the A bracket and loose to Express/Igloo/91 in a very competitive game than play in B brackets and beat up on B level teams. So please tell me of 1 club team that beat Legacy besides the other 3 mentioned? Legacy trains with Express every Sat afternoon in Box. Its always a spirited and competitive. That's what you pay for.

Rumor has it that the Lizards will be hosting PAL Long Island Championship games between Nassau & Suffolk to give the kids something to play for at the end of the season. Not a bad idea to bring some excitement back to town lacrosse

PAL should look to how Football runs their divisions. Teams are seeded correctly you play regular season games then you play a playoff game with a championship. Then maybe as a added bonus the Suffolk winners should play the Nassau winners.

Hard to say that legacy can compete with those teams when they seem to avoid them every year. Looking at their tournaments this year it looks like they are avoiding them again. At the Columbus Day invitational legacy was beat soundly by 91 and BBL. They barely beat igloos B team. Like I said, they have a nice program. But they just aren’t competitive with the top 3 in this age group

After reading all this sounds like the same person post after post . Who cares they are not 10-11 yrs old . Are you people serious ? Especially the Legacy post , who cares you Rebuild. They are kids people relax. How does 1 person know the top 3 top 4 top 5 who cares . Let the kids enjoy the game and grow into a better kid and player. Stop living thru your children .

Legacy crushed them every time they played them last year. Legacy handled Mooselax and any other LI team besides 91 and Express. They only scrimmaged Igloo last year. As any normal person like the several who expressed unbiased opinions above, 91, Express and Igloo are the top, and Legacy is the only other LI team that can compete with them and always plays in the A bracket. I rather have my son compete in the A bracket and loose to Express/Igloo/91 in a very competitive game than play in B brackets and beat up on B level teams. So please tell me of 1 club team that beat Legacy besides the other 3 mentioned? Legacy trains with Express every Sat afternoon in Box. Its always a spirited and competitive. That's what you pay for.


Legacy plays box with Express. Maybe the Legacy Eels can compete with the Hitmen now? Or the Vipers?

Bro, stop replying to your own posts. It's obvious that your kid got axed or left the program. Why would an adult be so obsessed wit ha boys lacrosse program?
They play in A tournaments in the A bracket. I rather go .500 in the A bracket then win the B bracket.

I agree, not to pile on Legacy. I think the comments should remain civil. They are not on the level of those top 3. That being said. It is an interesting blend of the next 5 to 6 clubs. If i write a comment on those clubs, please top 3 parents do not be insulted for any reason lol. Legacy, S2S, Mooselax, outlaws, Empire, GC, Then maybe a next level below them of knights, hitmen, Some of the top 3 B teams might fit in there somewhere, not sure where the newer long island lc team would fit. but i wouldn't really talk about town teams who use club players when comparing because they are overlapping players. and it would change the dynamic when you compare. IE- If RVC goes in a tournament that does not have the top 3 club teams in it, and they have all of their core players who play club, they of course are going to be at the top and be very competitive with any of the other clubs if not beat them all. so i am not talking about town teams unless they exclusively exclude the kids who play club for example GC.

In My Opinion- the best Farmingdale 2026 players are on Shore2Shore, not Legacy. In fact, a couple Farmingdale players who didn’t even make the 2026 Shore2Shore “A” team, were picked up by Legacy Eels.. no opinion here on how good Legacy Eels will be, but Farmingdale had one very good PAL team and one weak PAL team.

Hard to say that legacy can compete with those teams when they seem to avoid them every year. Looking at their tournaments this year it looks like they are avoiding them again. At the Columbus Day invitational legacy was beat soundly by 91 and BBL. They barely beat igloos B team. Like I said, they have a nice program. But they just aren’t competitive with the top 3 in this age group

I think aside from your grotesque use of commas, your statement of "Competitive with the big boys" is absurd. THEY ARE 10!! If there are any "BIG BOYS" then you need to start checking birth certificates. In addition, I can assure you there are members of those teams you so easily criticize, that do in fact have the ability to play on some of these other teams. But that's not the point. As ADULTS, we make decisions for our children that are in their best interest. That could be paying $4K for an intensive travel experience. Or paying $2k for a more laid back approach. One is not right and the other wrong. So instead of attacking parents and quite frankly children to soothe your ego or mostly likely your bank account that's suffering, you should invest your time and energy into enriching your son's life. Or maybe just invest in spell check.

You need to Relax. Your commas are offensive


Agreed. The commas are offensive. But not as offensive as the content of this post! There are no real club teams on Long Island except the top three (and Legacy)? Ha! Ten year old boys develop and change so much... ugh... maybe they all should quit now, if they aren’t on 91 or Igloo or Express or (ha) Legacy?

Dont mean this to pile on. And we certainly will be able to see this once some of the more local spring tournaments are held. I really dont see Legacy 2026 as that top club outside the top 3. I really do think there will be clubs that beat them.

How difficult is it to crack the top teams at this age? Are there talented kids that we have yet to see? Wondering how likely it is that the top teams will stay top teams. It has to change......these guys are still young.

They just played in October and lost badly to 91 and to BBL, and beat the igloo B team 5-3,, you think that makes them the number 4 team in 2026. I would say that you need to beat people to put yourself up there. November you beat a team from new hampshire who didnt win a game,

nobody can even see any games that were played they are so inactive to say that they are 4 is a joke, you have to play people and be out there to talk

Why don't you answer the question and stop with the nonsense. Who is beating them? Shore2Shore? Beat them soundly every time. Turtles? Beat them. rebels, Rebels? Beat them.

Breaking away from the same old topic...these kids are still young. The landscape will change with these teams over next couple years when they begin playing middle school ball and beyond.

A couple of teams that may surprise some folks this year -- Long Island Lacrosse Club and Mooselax. Not a part of either organization but have seen them play against some "better" squads and perform very well, if not win. LILC composed mostly of Port Washington kids, Moose with Northport, Greenlawn/Harborfields kids. Both areas manufacture solid HS lacrosse teams.

The programs that have been around for 8+ years now will continue to do well - parents/players want tp play with the biggest name programs but the new programs are substantially cheaper so they can draw talented players at thi particular grad year. Will be interesting to see. More programs, the better it is for all of us.

its also worth noting that the top three many times stay the top three because over the years, they have marketed themselves well and they pick off a few kids each year from the other teams, that is what keeps them up at the top and sometimes holds some of the others back.

Hilarious. Teams are changing and morphing every year. Everyone will see how Legacy does this year in 2026. Yeah, I know.. they beat everyone, blah blah blah.. end this now, and revisit it in June. Forget last year. Mooselax, LILC, S2S, Outlaws, Roar.. whoever they play, just let it play out.. Legacy likely won’t be better than all those teams.. but that’s why they play the games!

The key words being “LAST YEAR.” Kind of the whole point. Teams of 10 year old boys can change quickly.. and some of those teams are having a large turnover (upgrade?) of players... so if Legacy does beat everyone in the spring, then this forum should happily acknowledge them as the number four. Personally, I doubt they will beat LILC in the spring. Or some other 2026 teams.. But if they do, kudos..

Bottom line.

Express Haugen
91 Orange
Igloo




Every other team down here.

Argue and say your team belongs in this group if it makes you feel good. Everyone else knows you're not top 3.

It's pathetic listening to everyone here trying to say their sons team in top 3, top 5, whatever. It's Express Haugen, 91 Orange, Igloo. That's it.

Continue the conversation if it makes you feel good but those are facts.

These teams don't add or subtract 3 or 4 players each year. These will be the best teams until they graduate high school.

If it makes you feel good, argue that a different team will be in the top three this year or in the next few years. The top three will remain the top three. If you want to be apart of the those three teams, bring your son to one of the top three tryouts.

Re: Boys 2026-5th Grade Fall 2018/Summer 2019 - 02/04/19 07:01 PM

i would disagree, i think the top 3 are the top three because they have been at it longer and have great marketing in terms of where their overall organizations are. and they do add kids and subtract kids over time, every team does. They happen to benefit with that more. As kids who might begin to excel at a smaller club then go and try out and make one of the big 3 and then stay there. It happens a lot. Express Roster from their 2nd grade team wont be there World Series team or Hight school team eventually.

no one ever disputed the top 3, i think it was a question of what do some of the other clubs look like in long island and where do that stack up.
Are they not worthy of even talking about in a forum? Just to get an idea? Yes spring will be here and you can look at results, and it will difficult for any team to compete with those top 3 teams. But against each other there might be many more competitive games.

Anybody see any college games this week? D1 that is, god forbid you talk about D2 or D3, the audacity we must keep the forum to talking about only 3 teams. lol get a grip.

Yet Long Island manage to dominate every world series of lacrosse at the 8th grade level, when the rules require you to submit proof of a certain age.
what does that tell you???

Please explain the WS of lacrosse issue? Again, I am new to lacrosse, not stirring crap up. Is it a issue with people cheating, or lacrosse using graduation year for teams now?

It's the Wild West. Nothing is enforced except at the World Series of Youth Lacrosse where there are enforced age restrictions. Tournaments are grade based, shady parents hold their kids back up to two years to get an edge or in the case of Express, actually bring down kids from older grades to play on younger teams. Even with grade based tournaments, no one actually checks what grade the players are in.

The whole thing is a disgusting sham. Fortunately, my kid is a good player and holdbacks and other cheaters don't affect us. It doesn't make it any less gross.

I don't live in MD, or LI, but I read several other forums. There are pages and pages of Long Island parents complaining about hold backs on other Long Island programs and school districts. Yet it is their first line of defense when they talk about playing a Maryland team.

I would say that it is a practice that is just not limited to maryland, and yes you are correct, there are programs that are filled with holdbacks. that is why the whole youth lacrosse atmosphere is a joke. You never know who you are going to be playing so do not rely on what is winning or losing. Are you kids playing in competitive games, thereby they will develop better.
The World series is one tournament that enforces more strictly the age requirements of players, i just make an observation that the long island teams have dominated that tournament for the most part thus far. that is not to say with all the political BS out there that some teams refuse to go to the tournament which is also a joke. Bottom line, the kids are kids, let them develop dont worry about winning and losing as much as are you in a program where your son can develop and get better, and also have fun.

Is there truth to what I heard today that Legacy parents were getting so frustrated at Express during a bullish*t box scrimmage that Legacy parents were banging on the glass and telling kids to "kill that kid" and "crush that kid"? That's ridiculous if true. Whatever happened to letting coaches coach and controlling their teams?

Not true at all. Thanks for the clarification. What the Legacy parents actually said was “Say we’re in the top four, or else we will crush your kid.” Completely different. This is how misunderstandings happen..

OK S2S daddy. Please loose your infatuation with Legacy. It makes you look very small. Its a BS 91 tourney. I don't see Igloo or Express either. Beat someone first then puff out your chest. S2S 0 wins against Legacy, and that will continue.

The Knights now Outlaws have some solid kids and good coaching, it will be interesting to see if they stick with Outlaws or look elsewhere after this summer.

Not sure about that, I remember the Outlaws being quite good about 4-5 years ago. Have been on decline, hopefully we can see them get back there.

Re: Boys 2026-5th Grade Fall 2018/Summer 2019 - 02/14/19 06:57 PM

Let's remember the age group here. 4 or 5 years ago, these 2026 kids were 5-6 years old. Sure, there may have been an Outlaws team years ago that was good (check other forums)... doesn't mean it translates to every age group being good. As these kids get older, there will be teams besides the top 3 (whatever you want to call it) that will compete and possibly be on top. The 2026 Outlaw group from last year was solid for a second-tier team... I recall some athletic, but rather small, middies and attack. Couple of big defenseman. Solid #1 goalie. They won a few tourneys too.

FYI, 2026 Outlaws have two teams now. Original 2026 is being called Outlaws Select, and Knights coming over are being called Outlaws Knights (playing in Blatant Spring Jam as the B Team).

Hilarious, misinformed Legacy dad (is that not redundant?). Blatant is certainly not a Team 91 tournament. Blatant guys are running the Rebels (ex Outlaws). And every team in the A Division listed above would beat Legacy 2026... Oh, wait.. we won’t know because Top Four Legacy isn’t playing.. LILC is a far superior team.. just saying..

I don't think this years Outlaw team resembles what they had last year. They lost to a 4th grade 91 squad and a Farmingdale PAL team in the Fall. Maybe they're taking some of these Knights and making their "Select" team a little better for the Spring/Summer season.

I think that the kights and outlaws merging, can only make that team outlaw select stronger,, if they take a few of the stronger kids and make it like an A B situation. If they keep the teams separate, then i guess it wont be much different than the last few years.

What tournaments is Legacy entering anyway?

JUST an observation... The Legacy guy keeps asking why people are obsessed with Legacy’s team. But then he tells everyone how good they are, how they play in A tournaments, how they are number four on Long Island in this age group, and they have the best coaches.. nobody would be discussing Legacy if not for the chest-thumping and bragging coming from Legacy dad.. don’t cry for more attention, and then complain about the attention.. and win a few A tournaments on Long Island, if you really want to shut people up.. just saying.. perhaps enter Blatant Spring Jam?

What tournaments is Legacy entering anyway?

The 2026 Outlaw group from last year was solid for a second-tier team... I recall some athletic, but rather small, middies and attack. Couple of big defenseman. Solid #1 goalie. They won a few tourneys too.



Same can be said about a handful of the Knights players. They haven't won any tourneys, but if you break the team down, there are a couple of quality kids in middie, attack and the goalie is solid.


You know all about LI lax teams, but you can't figure out how to look up a web site??

Knight is a Kings Park/Smithtown based club team. This season they were "acquired" by The Outlaws. They are operating as 2 separate teams for the rest of the season.

I think the apple cart just got turned over. The 2027 91 team is now in the conversation as a top 2026 team. If Legacy was #4 they are now a very distant #5. The 91 27’s can beat them without breaking a sweat and can probably beat the top teams. Very impressive this weekend.

Ok 91 machine dad. Go back to the 2027 forum. You beat a bunch of lower level B teams In a B level tournament. No one cares.

Re: Boys 2026-5th Grade Fall 2018/Summer 2019 - 03/18/19 04:34 PM

I would not say B level tournament. Towermen were best team in the tournament, they had to play 4 games rather then 3 games and one being the early morning game. When you own the tournaments you get the spoils of setting up the schedule the way you want. that is not to take anything from the machine dad before he goes crazy. but if tower men, plays the schedule that machine had and machine had to play the towermen schedule, i think towermen win that last game.

We got rid of 91 machine dad and now have towerman dad. It was a b leave tournament. None of the top 2026 teams were there. You could even argue that even some of the top level b clubs from Long Island weren’t there either. You got beat by very good 4th graders. Back to Jersey you go

Legacy doesnt even go into tournaments. You cant consider them. Towermen are a strong team they have some very good players. There are only 3 A teams in 2026 Express Igloo and 91.

Is the 2027 91 A better than the 2026 91 A ? 91 2027 needs faceoff to take them to the next level.

Re: Boys 2026-5th Grade Fall 2018/Summer 2019 - 03/20/19 08:55 PM

No 91 2026 is a much better team with older kids, although today who knows, you have holdbacks all over the place.
They are both good. Face-offs would not help them.

You guys are not very bright. My point was why travel all the way to Maryland to play Maryland teams in the middle of March. There are plenty of good teams here on long Island. How many Maryland teams are traveling to Long Island in March to play us? None. The weather was just the icing on the cake

The trip centered around the Hopkins-UVA game, which took place on Maryland. So that's why they played Maryland (and PA) teams.

What seperates Farmingdale from some of these other Nassau teams is we have 15 + kids that can play with anyone ,,where CSH,WANTAGH,MANHASSET HAVE 4/5 that carry the whole team...we are developing a team not watching one or 2 kids run up and down the field ,, i would say Garden City only town that doesnt play daddy ball ,,,

Farmingdale Dad, now you are just getting crazy. this weekend you beat two C teams, then beat two teams that played immediately back to back games, and you won by a couple of goals. I dont see the dominance there you are speaking of. As for your comment of what you define as Daddy ball. Every team has some stronger players, if you take them out of the mix it changes the dynamic. So I think you sound like you dont know what you are talking about.

Farmingdale is solid, nothing special. In Nassau, CSH, Manhasset, GC, PW and Farmingdale are all similar level. IMO. They each have a small group of very good players, a group of mid level players and a group of weaker players. Any of these teams can beat the others on any given day.

Re: Boys 2026-5th Grade Fall 2018/Summer 2019 - 04/16/19 02:32 PM

LOL, winning by a goal or two goals is dominance? Are you saying that CSH RVC Manhasset, Wantagh, Port and other dont pass??? I dont think thats the case. I think there are a lot of good teams, and some of them played this weekend. CSH Roar is a very good team, i think they are better then farmingdale. and they play in A tournaments, so Farmingdale can say they were in the A bracket but they played the two weakest teams at first. And they played Wantagh after having an hours rest, while wantagh had to play immediately after they got off the field. Congrats on winning a tournament, but winner of a tournament is not always the best team. Last time i checked, even in high school, they dont play more then one game at a time, so winning a tournament tells you nothing. Come down from your kool aid high.

PS Coach C is a member of the NLF and he also coaches and participates in the profits from Warrior Games.

Plus he can find some new blood to replace your kid when he is there.

This is true - no other regions send their best players: since noone from MD is travelling to UMass at the end of their travel season, you'll end up playing against the other 91 teams from Florida, NC, and TX and all the fill-ins that didn't make it from LI. Not really 'All American' more like 'All 91'. Make sure you tell your little All American how great he looks in his Apollo Creed wannabe gear...

Any thoughts on the spring lax jam this weekend? Why did they make two equal divisions instead and A and B?

Once again i will clarify for all the angry dads who cant handle the fact that Farmingdale is the best " TOWN TEAM " on long island , probably in the country ..should we have entered in the A division in blatant and get destroyed by 91 ?? we would probably beat every other club team on LI besides 91 and Exspress ..this could be the best group of talent in one age group Nassau County has ever seen,,,dont be a hater , we can play the speed game or run over you ,,pick your poison!!

this is laughable, take a breath buddy. If they are one of the best town teams in the country they wouldn't get destroyed by 91A. CSH is playing in the A, they're not afraid.

I don't know about easily, but I did catch part of their Saturday game and all of their Sunday game this weekend when I was watching my nephew play for Looney's. They are a very good team. Not sure my son's 2025 team could beat them. That is not meant as a prompt for LI dad and his hold back comments!!

Lots of good teams in the tournament, didn't Laxachussetts beat the Hawks last summer? Way premature to crown the Hawks champs of any summer tournament.

My son plays with the Hawks. He is 12. My understanding is that NY graduates at a year younger than Maryland. That is the reason for the age discrepancy. The boys all graduate in 2026 though. As far as hold backs (meaning 13 year olds) I don't know the age of at least 3/4 of the team.

Do the kids on the hawks team qualify for WSYL in 2 years? If not, then yes, holdbacks. No 12 year olds on LI teams. Kids aged 9-11 on 2026 LI teams.

Not a coincidence that Annapolis Hawks (and most MD teams) NEVER show up to WSYL.

Can you be a hold back if you were never held back?

Re: Boys 2026-5th Grade Fall 2018/Summer 2019 - 05/20/19 08:47 PM

My son is on a Maryland team with a late September birthday. He is 11. Maryland public school cutoff is 9/1. So on our team we have 10 boys born before 9/1 and 10 boys after. So technically we have 50% holdbacks. We are a middle of the road 2026 Elite team.

Just over half our boys are in private school. There you have it. Long Island teams at a disadvantage until 9th grade.

From Maryland public schools website


AGE & ATTENDANCE REQUIREMENTS: 2018-19

Age

Children age 5 by September 1, 2018, and not age 21 on the first day of school are eligible for enrollment in MCPS for the 2018-19 school year.

Prekindergarten, age 4 by September 1
Kindergarten, age 5 by September 1
First grade, age 6 by September 1


I’m not a big fan of LI parents but they are correct. Until we move to BIRTH YEAR youth lacrosse this is the reality. I don’t like it either but any Maryland parent defending the fact that their 12 year old fifth grader is not an intentional or unintentional holdback is wrong.

Now that the no contact before 9/1 junior legislation is in place there is NO reason for youth graduation year based lacrosse teams. Blame it on the Howard County league that has always been in the back pocket of the Baltimore clubs that feed the MIAA conference.

So when the Hawks parents claim there are no 12 year olds on their team I call BS on that. When any Maryland Elite level team claims there are no 12 year olds on their team is it definitely BS.

And yes, that is why no team from our club has been to WSYL since our 2021 team did back before WSYL changed their cutoff date. And we will never go again.

On age Maryland kids that want to play in WSYL need to jump on an eligible team with in 100 miles that is looking for more good kids to attend. That is how it’s done.

BBL in New Jersey has a specific WSYL tryout in the spring. So they slap their 2026 and 2027 teams together and hope to attract a few more good stragglers.

Last summers Next Level team had several really good kids join after the tryout dates. You can do that as long as you play with the team in two spring tournaments and the club is within 100 miles of your home. Obviously there is room for abuse there as well.

So it is a testament to how skilled the LI boys are since they are younger but can still hang with these older 2026 teams.

Do the kids on the hawks team qualify for WSYL in 2 years? If not, then yes, holdbacks. No 12 year olds on LI teams. Kids aged 9-11 on 2026 LI teams.

Not a coincidence that Annapolis Hawks (and most MD teams) NEVER show up to WSYL.



[ChillLaxin]!! You aren’t on the Hawks with your 12 year old! There is not a 12 year old the team!! Stop trying to start garbage you lost!!!

I think a bigger advantage that MD teams have over LI teams is that they play in a club spring league together. By the time summer comes around, they have 20+ games together between fall and spring league. That is a bigger advantage than being a few months older on average.

I don't know about easily, but I did catch part of their Saturday game and all of their Sunday game this weekend when I was watching my nephew play for Looney's. They are a very good team. Not sure my son's 2025 team could beat them. That is not meant as a prompt for LI dad and his hold back comments!!


Thank you! Classy, classy move giving credit to the Hawks 2026 team. They truly do work their tails off and are a team... of 10/11 year old boys! Looneys played a great game against Team 91 and earned their spot in the championship! Your nephew should be proud.

I’m not a big fan of LI parents but they are correct. Until we move to BIRTH YEAR youth lacrosse this is the reality. I don’t like it either but any Maryland parent defending the fact that their 12 year old fifth grader is not an intentional or unintentional holdback is wrong.

Now that the no contact before 9/1 junior legislation is in place there is NO reason for youth graduation year based lacrosse teams. Blame it on the Howard County league that has always been in the back pocket of the Baltimore clubs that feed the MIAA conference.

So when the Hawks parents claim there are no 12 year olds on their team I call BS on that. When any Maryland Elite level team claims there are no 12 year olds on their team is it definitely BS.

And yes, that is why no team from our club has been to WSYL since our 2021 team did back before WSYL changed their cutoff date. And we will never go again.

On age Maryland kids that want to play in WSYL need to jump on an eligible team with in 100 miles that is looking for more good kids to attend. That is how it’s done.

BBL in New Jersey has a specific WSYL tryout in the spring. So they slap their 2026 and 2027 teams together and hope to attract a few more good stragglers.

Last summers Next Level team had several really good kids join after the tryout dates. You can do that as long as you play with the team in two spring tournaments and the club is within 100 miles of your home. Obviously there is room for abuse there as well.

So it is a testament to how skilled the LI boys are since they are younger but can still hang with these older 2026 teams.




You are insane!!!!!! There are NO 12 year olds on the 2026 Annapolis Hawks team! This is becoming a darn joke.

Or perhaps they don’t go because the owner of the Hawks also runs a more competitive tournament in there backyard at about the same time. WSYL is not the most competitive field, fun experience for the kids but don’t act like the only possible reason not to attend is the age of players.

Naptown is a very competitive High School Tournament but a lame youth tournament. WSYL has team 91 LI and LI Express and those are typically the two best youth teams in the country in seventh grade.

3 out of 5 Eastern qualifiers were from MD last year. That includes competition from VA, PA and NJ. NY is in the eastern region where they easily have the most talent. Its safe to say that LI has a big advantage in their population with such a concentration of people. I watched last year and recall the announcers talking about a player in the finals that traveled from Manhattan to LI Express practices. I believe his name was Rockefeller, so maybe he took a helicopter to avoid that brutal commute.

And both are teams the Hawks don’t have to fly to Denver to play. WSYL has done an outstanding job of marketing and building hype around the tournament without question. But please don’t try to say it’s the best field of 7th grade teams. There are other tournaments with much harder fields of teams. Just look at the performance of the 2022 Diamondbacks at the WSYL two years ago to prove that point.

The MD qualifiers were weak teams. The reason Long Island teams are so good is that they have an incredible youth program and they are age eligible. Most of the really good Maryland teams are not age eligible. Simple as that.

I wish the Hawks would just admit it.... How many kids were born in 2007? 2026 means Jan 1, 2008 birthdate or later according to public schools on Long Island. How many kids were born before 9/1/2007? That is the cutoff for US Lacrosse, WSYL. We all know the truth, just admit the numbers and all will be fine...

Madlax was caught cheating in the Maryland spring league. They had a team with 5th and 6th graders and put them in a division just for 5th graders. Got called out during the playoffs and were disqualified.

So not only do they have reclassed kids on every team, they illegally play down.

This is true. The team had 17 registered fifth graders for the entire season. They brought in 7 sixth graders for a semi final game. Keep in mind that this was not 2026 Elite. It was 2026A. Three levels down from elite. Madlax is a garbage program and they are cheaters.

And if you are part of this program you are guilty by association.

It’s not illegal, let’s not get over dramatic here. It’s kiddie lacrosse. It’s a violation of a tournament rule. My goodness what a cry baby you must be raising.

Agree with Laxachusetts Dad here - should be a loaded division. I think every team had at least one loss last year. You could tell me that Laxachusetts, Hawks or 91 could win and I wouldn't be surprised.

Anyone know what is going on with the 2026 board on the Maryland Forum? It doesn't look like new comments are being added to the forum. I went there to try to see how the Bethesda team did this year but can't seem to post anything. Has it been locked down for some reason?

I'm sure we can agree that at age 11, any team can beat any other team with a pool of clubs this talented. It just depends who shows up, when. That being said, last year Laxachusetts won the NLF (beat LI Express and Bethesda) and the Young Gunz (beat Hawks and Tigers). Lost by 1 in semis of Lax Clash to eventual champ, LI Express. LI Express lost to Laxachusetts in finals of NLF, won the Lax Clash (beating Laxachusetts in semis), and likely did well in other spring tourneys. Team 91 was only team to beat Laxachusetts at NLF in pool play and is likely the strongest overall program, top to bottom, in the country. The Hawks dominated MD last year, losing in OT to Laxachusetts in the Young Gunz and are dominating the MD HOCO leagues this year. Tigers XXVI game Laxachusetts a great game at Young Gunz, with one very high level player rounding out a strong team. Bethesda LC had a strong team that lost to Laxachusetts by 1 and split with LI Express at NLF. Don't know much about Big 4 HHH other than it's one of the dominant Philly clubs. Primetime beat Laxachusetts in consolation game at Lax Clash and is the dominant CT program. And don't sleep on Express North.

As the previous poster said, an absolutely loaded division with most games likely decided by a goal or two. Should be great fun and great competition. Let's let the kids play and hopefully, the parents will be able to watch some high-level youth lax, applaud all players and teams, and show great sportsmanship.

Looking at the schedule why is Bethesda playing Hawks? Drive 5-6 hours to play a Hawks team we've already played multiple times. Nice job NLF

Looks like the message was received. Hawks not playing BLC in pool play. Moved Laxachusetts over to other division to even things out. Made changes to scheduled games. Still should be a great display of youth lax. The 2026 division seems stacked.

Primetime
91
Express North


Hawks
BLC
LI Expresss
Tigers


Hawks have played and beaten this bracket before - why drive 5 hours to play the same teams - makes no sense unless NLF wants to see Hawks vs 91/Laxchusetts final

Agreed. Summer should be as much about playing teams from other areas as it is about winning. I would imagine that the teams in the Red Pool play each other plenty being mostly NE teams. Good Luck! The weather is going to be great.

I would have liked to see the Hawks, Tigers and Laxachusetts play the long island teams? Hawks beat Express in maryland in march and the Tigers were dominant vs Express at the same event. Also the Hawks and Tigers went to Overtime & Hawks pulled it out at same event but was closest game of our year so far. so why not play the hawks vs long island teams vs playing maryland or tigers like they always do? also why not play laxachusetts and tigers vs more long island teams? seems like a long way to travel to play local maryland teams again. also my kid is the regular age and not older - Hawks dad

Seems competitive - although, there are 2 other club tournaments this weekend and you'll probably see a lot of light rosters for the town teams.

This seems more competitive than the TB tourney tomorrow that's for sure. That has B-C level teams in that one. The NLF will obviously be top notch. I think both of those are Saturday though. Town one is Sunday.

Does FLG even have a 2026 team in that tournament? Looking at Tourney Machine, didn't see any "FLG" branded team.

Keep winning those 4th and 5th grade divisions with 7th and 8th graders,, and when D1 championship weekend rolls along, you will still see 50% of the players from Long Island.

I'd love to see a Hawk's parent post the real month and birth year of their starting lineup. I'd suggest that trashy bald Hawks dad with the beard and no shoes, but it's unlikely he knows how to use a computer. There is no way all of those Hawks are the same age as LI 2026's who are Nov 07-Oct 08, some even younger because they play up vs down. Bottom line lax should switch to birth year to avoid this. Nice showing by the Hawks coach yelling about LI toughness during the game btw, that's a terrible sign of leadership if he can be rattled by opposing parents during a game they're winning. I hope the Hawks kids liked their t shirts, though I doubt they fit them.

You are crazy if you think half the D1 Championship players are from Long Island. 48 players rostered on Final Four teams are from the entire state of NY, 16 from Maryland. When you consider that NY State has 3 times the population of Long Island, that ratio is right in line.

The sport is no longer about Long Island and Maryland, more then half the players on Final Four teams are from states not named NY or Maryland.

Stop being such a B*tch and admit when a team is better. Are the other boards full of MD and other parents whining about team 91 cheating after they won just about every other division?

Where are the complaints about the Tigers kid who was 4 inches taller than the hawks taller kids?

Were you the bald guy in the floppy hat complaining on the sidelines?

He probably should not have even acknowledged the trashy LI dad that was yelling "you're dirty coach, your team plays dirty" but he did.

Even the ref had to tell the sidelines when they took a break from crying at him that "we're playing NCAA rules guys, there's supposed to be contact"

Re: Boys 2026-5th Grade Fall 2018/Summer 2019 - 06/10/19 03:25 PM

The Hawks are the premier organization in the Annapolis area. They host tryouts before anyone to get the best talent. Last tryout over 90 kids registered. Hogan runs the tryouts and makes his picks. It more than sticks skills, GB's, and IQ. SIZE MATTERS, and it a deciding factor when making cuts.

But don't be confused, I'm sure the shorter boys on the team were eating your kids up too!

None of those boys are in any grade other than 5th. How the heck could they be if the entire organization had games at the same time!

Take the L and move on. Jesus, you sound so bitter. If you didn't want to play the Hawks, you shouldn't have registered for the tournament.

You're whining and telling your kids they got beat bc they are bigger than you, not better than you.

Teams beat that Hawks team last year with some game planning and strategy, anything can happen when you look past the excuses.

Take this as a learning experience, not as a slap in the face.

Sincerely,
Dad whose son got cut from the Hawks because he's too short

I am a 91 parent that was watching this game. The Express parents were not yelling about the legal contact. From what I saw they were yelling about the constant checks/slashes to the head. There were a lot of them from the Hawks players and that can't be denied. I thought the refs did a decent job besides that.
The size difference was amazing. Anyone can say that all the kids on the Hawks are the same age as the kids from any LI club. It is clearly a lie. If you believe that there are no 12 year olds (maybe even 13) playing on the Hawks, you're living in denial.

Meh......I am neutral in this debate, we didn't play the Hawks, but I watched a little. Yes, there were some taller Hawks kids. Their 2 attackmen and their D mainly. that is all that stood out to me. their third attackman was small and was killing his defender just like the bigger attackmen were. We played the Tigers and they had a HUGE middie/attackman (bigger than every hawk) and a really big D. I don't see anyone on here questioning them.

Back of the cage...so easy even a cave man can do it.

Just admit some of the boys are older, post their real birthdays or send a team to Denver in two years.

Whatever you say. Better get add another practice night if you think your kid's team is going west. What team? Express?

This is the part where you all just say, "we got beat by a better team", it's okay, it happens. The worst part is they are going to come back more stacked next year and there is nothing you can do about it except sit here and complain on the internet. The smallest kid on their team is the toughest one is what I find the funniest. Sounds to me like it's not an age or size thing, it's a tough vs soft thing and the north is breeding them soft.

What parent is going to allow kids birthdates to be posted in an anonymous online forum?

Keep telling yourself whatever you need to justify the L's.

Hawks #44 is probably one of the kids people would like to think is older.

He is age eligible even in NY, 1/08 birthdate.

The refs were terrible, the grass wasnt cut, the kids were too big, the sun was too hot, the walk from the parking lot was too long, my Se-port bomber was cold and my kid didnt play because the coach plays the kid from his town

What other excuses are there from LI?

HAWKS = Exposed!

https://www.hudl.com/team/v2/320875/Annapolis-Hawks-2026/team

Click on first few names. One kid is listed as playing on 2026 Hawks AND on Junior Varsity Team.... with! Kids should be in 5th grade if in 2026. You cannot play JV until 8th grade. Next kid is listed as playing U12 football in 2016.... You are pathetic Hawks.... I stopped clicking after 2-3 names.

NLF should throw this organization out at all levels. Pathetic...

Maryland does not allow 8th graders to play high school sports in the public or private school leagues until 9th grade. That’s crazy that the Hawks put 9th or 10th graders in a 2026 game to win the NLF! They should be ashamed of themselves. NLF, please look into this and make it right.

Are you really that notIntelligent? Going out on a limb here. MAYBE the parent set up the hudl account and they are members of their other child's team. If you are notIntelligent enough to think that an 8th grade kid is playing JV lacrosse (which you cannot in MD) AND 5th grade lacrosse then your WIFI should be turned off.

This should be good - Express North, Sweetlax and Prime Time come to NAL next weekend

I think we should get together before the game and exchange pleasantries. You know get to know each other. Show our family pics and tell a little about ourselves so we can be closer. I mean if we are going to be playing every summer till 11th grade we should know each other. A good bonding experience after the afternoon games could be SMore's and story telling around the fire.

Are you that notIntelligent? Can you imagine the score if Hawks had kids in 9th grade playing - it would be like 18-0 like Laxachusetts over PrimeTime

You are spending an awful lot of time defending a team that you claim doesn't used hold backs/reclassed kids. Clearly you know the kids are older and want everyone here to believe you. The problem is that everyone that has played against the Hawks knows they play with older boys.

Sorry we dont.

At the end of the day, playing against the Hawks (however old they are) makes my boy better in the long run. Its better to play against them then thumping lesser skilled teams and bad lax habits are not brought to the forefront. As the boys get older, the age means less and less. The 8th/9th graders will be playing against older kids in school, so it will prepare them for it. As long as the refs control the physical aspect of the game at this age so no one gets hurt because of the size difference, I'm good with it. We don't need any more t shirts.

This is correct. My oldest son always had to play up 2 grades for football because of the weight class. In 5th grade he was playing with and against 7th graders. It helped him big time. When he got to HS it really paid off.

From the looks of the scores she may be right. Being a goalie is the toughest spot out there and its a very emotional postilion. No one wants to play it but its the first place you look at when you lose. But it usually is not the goalies fault if they do everything they are supposed to be doing. My son is a goalie on a different team. Our defense is not very good no one slides. We constantly have middies coming straight down the lane and shoot point blank. The goalie can only do so much at that point.

All those things aside, that type of behavior from a parent is inexcusable. It comes from the top. If kids see their parents behave like that, then they'll start to treat their teammates like that and it's an endless cycle of entitled kids who can't be coached and no one wants to be around.

Great tournament in LI. Terrific competition. We played and lost to a solid Tigers squad. #17 was big (blessed with the size gene) but wasn't the only reason for that team beating Laxachusetts. We must have had 80% possession in the first half and couldn't get our offense on track. Honestly, we didn't play our best game and missed multiple chances. 4 of their 6 goals were man up (one was 2 men up) and didn't have an answer for #17 in those situations. That being said, D kept them to 6 even with those man ups. But that is why you play the game. They had solid D, a very good goalie and didn't give us any space. Also think the boys were looking past Tigers to the Hawks. It didn't materialize. Congrats to the Hawks for winning the tourney. Maybe we'll see you at the NLF Nationals. As for the LI teams, we'll see you in a couple of weeks at Lax Clash.

That's refreshing, saying that a tall kid is blessed with size and not automatically assuming he is a hold back.

Seems like quite a few people do. It's a great town tournament organized by Port Washington.


How did PW play Sunday at HC?

Have any teams released their 19/20 tryout dates yet? I know Rebels and Recon have. Interested to know if there have been any other dates released.

They are Hudl accounts- not rosters. I know because my name is on the list and I am a parent.

Click on first few names. One kid is listed as playing on 2026 Hawks AND on Junior Varsity Team.... with! Kids should be in 5th grade if in 2026. You cannot play JV until 8th grade. Next kid is listed as playing U12 football in 2016.... You are pathetic Hawks.... I stopped clicking after 2-3 names.

NLF should throw this organization out at all levels. Pathetic...


Are you really that notIntelligent? Going out on a limb here. MAYBE the parent set up the hudl account and they are members of their other child's team. If you are notIntelligent enough to think that an 8th grade kid is playing JV lacrosse (which you cannot in MD) AND 5th grade lacrosse then your WIFI should be turned off.



I guess the parent gave both the kids the same first name... Kid's first name is listed on both rosters. Strange...

Be sure to pat 14 year old Johnny on the back. He got to beat up kids that are younger than him. You should be a proud Daddy. Still won't see him at the WSYL though.

Will you ever get tired of the same excuse? If Hawks played with 13 and 14 year olds the scores would have been 20-0. It’s not like the games were blowouts. Get over yourself.

Is that the same excuse that you use to explain the losses to the Tigers and Laxchusetts? If we lost, they must be older, not better....

Just about every other division championship was won by Team 91. I don't see anyone from MD/NJ/MA/PA complaining about the ages of those teams kids. Just realize that you aren't as good as the Hawks and move on.

Still won't see him at any event that checks birth year. Common sense tells everyone that the Hawks don't participate in an event like that because the teams wouldn't qualify. Enjoy beating the younger teams.

I'm a Long Island dad here and I totally agree with this post. Plenty of 91 teams beat the same teams in different age groups. The bottom line is that the talent pool on Long Island at this age group isn't that deep. It just seems to vary from age group to age group.

Ever think that maybe there are too many clubs in LI and the talent pool is watered down. There were kids on clubs teams who couldnt catch and throw or use their off hand. i'm not sure what you all pay for club ball but some of these kids should just play for their town team

I 100% agree. There are so many options for club teams here on LI, the majority of talent is concentrated to a handful of competitive teams. You also have some quality kids on some B level teams. But they are surrounded by kids who didn't make the other teams and have parents who will just pay to have them play.
The kids who have more talent are going to start making the shift to better teams. The ones who make it will leave where they are and the ones who don't, the parents will eventually get frustrated.
I think you'll see in the next year or two a shift and some of these B teams will start to fizzle out. You can't sustain a club like that.

I'm sure this will be unpopular but age, size or talent isn't the primary issue. The largest factor in favor of Maryland teams playing better in this age group is team chemistry. They play year round together and don't have town teams that they also play for. Most Maryland teams have played at least 30 games as a group this year and practices 60+ times, in some cases 100+ games together over three years at this point in 5th grade. It's hard for any team, even with equal talent to match up with a team that has played that much together.

The gap will close, it always does and alway will. We should all relax and stop having the same arguments. Who cares if they don't go to the WSYL.

Check them!!! They are all of age to play in their age group- ESPECIALLY when we are talking about elementary school aged children!! When you get to middle and high that may be a different story and kids surely will be held back for sports by the overbearing over reaching parents but no one is holding their should be 7th or 8th grader back into 5th grade. That’s just ridiculous to even assume.

This is so true...... My son played against the Hawks this weekend and we had 4-6 practices before that tournament. They are very talented, don't get me wrong but the chemistry they have puts them over the top. The team d , knowing where the other guy is or will be, the clears, the cuts and feeds from the attack, and their riding. Their riding was more aggressive and high speed than my oldest son's jv team. That's effort, and getting 5th graders to go that hard on rides is done in practice, lots of practices together.

Absolutely correct. We played them twice. The 6-8 months of practicing and playing together is a major advantage.

I am a long island parent , and played laxachusettes yesterday , we have played Hawks and Laxachusettes the last couple of weeks , both in playoff games . First thing that comes to mind is the Laxachusettes parents are great , respectful , and are awesome win or loose , they love there sports and are competitive but understand most of the boys we are talking about havent reached puberty . thyt as a whole have some very good players , of age , if one or two kids are bigger does not make them holbacks or cheaters , class act and a good team . Now the Hawks , not only are the parents unbearable , maybe living there unrealized dreams through there kids , they flat out cheat the system ! for the benefit of winning a t shirt would hold back kids that already are 1 year older then most others. One parent from Bethesda real nice mon laughed when i said the Hawks say the whole roster is 11 and younger ,, COME ON MAN ,,,let it go ,,you keep yelling HAWKS until these touraments smarten up and require Birth year and Matrix charts ,,,like every other sports,,so to your question,,,LI parents respect laxachusetts and laugh at HAWKS

Great tournament and great competition. First class "LI Style". Championship vs 91 was a closer than the score and semis against LI Express was a dogfight (love watching that #32 take a FO...lights out). All the kids played their hearts out in hot conditions and in the end, a few more went in for us. High end youth lax for sure. We won't know anything for 5 or 6 years until these kids have gone through their growth spurts but until then, just kids playing a game they love. We as parents, can ALL get caught up in the emotion of this great game. And the passion of the LI parents is great. As we drove home, we must have passed a dozen or so fields, each with a half dozen lacrosse goals. Told both my boys that lax in LI is like hockey in MA. Pretty cool to see. So many good teams. Hope to see these teams again at Prime Time (CT) or NLF National (UMass). Until then, play hard and fast. - LXC dad

Also, you realize that the Massachusetts age cut off for school is the same as Maryland don't you? You never see LI parents complaining about that in here. heck, the biggest kid in the NLF tournament was on the Tigers, and no one that I heard questioned his age.

MD is known for holding kids back along with the school cut off being different. So many of the kids are 1 1/2 to 2 years older than LI kids.

That's fair. Maybe there are a few but the LI parents behave as if there are 18 holdbacks out there.

Are the Tigers a single team (2026) or is it an actual program? I don't see anything on line about it other than XXVI. If so, what is the purpose of this single age team and who started it?

Correct. I am a LI parent of public school children, and there are hold backs at the private schools. Less than in MD I'm sure, but that's probably only because there are only 2 big private lacrosse programs on LI.

I will say that BLC is a top tier team in MD and Diamondbacks is not at all. In fact they are so bad they are merging with another org to get better. If Diamondbacks which are terrible and no one complains about their size and they go and beat up on LI and Philly teams what does that say?

Would be very curious to see what would happen if Laxachusetts, practiced from September to July as a team, then played a full slate of fall tournaments, followed by a dozen games in a spring league (like HOCO), then played the summer circuit, versus picking the roster 3 weeks before the June 1, practicing 3 times together then playing and BEATING the Hawks like LXC did last July in MD. My guess is the Hawks wouldn't stand a chance. Maybe you didn't know that the team was put together weeks before the summer with 3 practices though...not having played a single game prior to the summer tournament schedule. But they encourage 11 years olds to be multi sport athletes and most on the team excel at an elite level, in one or two other sports. That's the reality, my friend.

Amen to that ! Most of the very best lax players are also studs in football or soccer, and are not burnt out by the time they reach HS.
But I will gladly let the one sport "wonder boys" do what they do best, wilt under pressure when they get older.

I’m fairly certain that not a single player on the 2026 Hawks is a single sport athlete. Most are playing 2-3 sports and the only time the Hawks expect players to prioritize Lacrosse is in the Spring and Tournament season. Sorry to disappoint you again.

Seriously???? Stop making excusing for both you and your son, take some accountability and call it a day. I can only imagine your conversation with your wife. Bet it goes something like this....Honey, could you only imagine if I went to college.....those other guys/gals couldn't boss me around.....Honey, could you only image if I didn't eat so many candy bars...I might not be so fat....Honey, cold you only image if...….you get my drift......you're the type of person always blaming someone/something else besides your own actions. How many times have you blamed the refs, field conditions or weather? That being said, many of parents from LXC were very respectful and called the game as they see it...you on the other hand, not so much.......

Re: Boys 2026-5th Grade Fall 2018/Summer 2019 - 06/25/19 08:50 PM

Question for the group (especially those with knowledge of the Maryland (Hawks), Massachusetts (Laxachusetts) and Philly/PA area (Tigers XXVI) : How far is your geographic circle of kids on the team? On LI, most kids who play for Express, Team 91, Igloo, Legacy, etc. are located within a 20-30 minute car ride radius (yes, there are a couple of outliers, but most do not travel more than that to their home field practice location). With so many teams competing for the same talent pool in the same geographic area, LI teams are diluting the talent. Also, there are some great town programs (like Garden City, etc.) who encourage their players to not play club lacrosse and do a great job keeping top talent within their own town travel teams.

Does Laxachussetts Black get kids from all over Mass? Is it the Greater Boston Area (and how big is that)? Are their multiple Laxachusetts teams (Western, Eastern, North, South, Rhode Island), that all feed into a summer Elite team. Same with Hawks? Are they pulling from a large geographic talent pool by themselves? I know there are plenty of teams within the Howarrd County (HoCO) region, but do they just get the best of the best?

We are also starting to see teams like Dukes National, True Illinois, Sweetlax that are pulling in kids on a statewide (or even out of state) basis to play in tournaments. That is an extremely wide talent pool area to pull from LI just has too many teams and it is supply/demand. Forget about age, cutoff dates, holdbacks... each LI club is out there to make money and have as many kids on their A, B, C teams. LI needs a way to figure out a way to consolidate talent. Don't know how. But again, was just wondering if people can elaborate on how it is done in the other areas mentioned above.

Most kids playing this level lacrosse at this age are multi sport athletes. Maybe not all on the travel level, but most play 2-3 sports.

Which team is better on Long Island? Express AA or 91 AA. And if the answer is Express, take away their face off kid and who wins? Pros and cons of each team? I am trying to decide which team would be best for my son. Honest answers would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Re: Boys 2026-5th Grade Fall 2018/Summer 2019 - 06/26/19 04:01 AM

Express and 91 are the same teams. What is going to happen is simple. CoachC and Spallina are businessmen and they are going to merge these teams one way or the other. Neither team can compete with the older talent that the Hawks & Lax have on their own and they know that. Simple solution. Merge the teams and get the best 20 from L.I. on the field. Both clubs will still make a ton of money regardless and they will no longer have to hear the Hawks Dad gloat about his non re-graded 12 year old beating 10/11 yr olds. They will say that this is not happening and how dare it even be suggested. Don't be fooled. The team is already picked and you will most likely see that come tryouts when miraculously the 8-12 best kids from your team are not there. I can't wait to see the team name. SpaChucks, Chanillina's, or ChannySpills........ WSYL 2021 here we come.

Obviously you are an express dad and if your top face guy goes to 91 your team is done. Same can be said for 91. If there top guy leaves they are in just as much if not more trouble. What you should follow is where the Igloo F/O kid goes because whichever club grabs him they become head and shoulders above the other one. We didn't play express or 91 but the Igloo kid was lights out and those other 2 are even better. Hope that helped.

I have never heard of a team that doesn't allow their players to play other sports, and prioritize those sports in the Fall and Winter. If that team/organization exists, I wouldn't suggest letting your child play for them. Hawks fall/winter is optional as well, you get to what you can.

Do LI Express and 91 both pull from Nassau and Suffolk?

On LI, most kids who play for Express, Team 91, Igloo, Legacy, etc. are located within a 20-30 minute car ride radius (yes, there are a couple of outliers, but most do not travel more than that to their home field practice location). With so many teams competing for the same talent pool in the same geographic area, LI teams are diluting the talent. Also, there are some great town programs (like Garden City, etc.) who encourage their players to not play club lacrosse and do a great job keeping top talent within their own town travel teams.

Does Laxachussetts Black get kids from all over Mass? Is it the Greater Boston Area (and how big is that)? Are their multiple Laxachusetts teams (Western, Eastern, North, South, Rhode Island), that all feed into a summer Elite team. Same with Hawks? Are they pulling from a large geographic talent pool by themselves? I know there are plenty of teams within the Howarrd County (HoCO) region, but do they just get the best of the best?

We are also starting to see teams like Dukes National, True Illinois, Sweetlax that are pulling in kids on a statewide (or even out of state) basis to play in tournaments. That is an extremely wide talent pool area to pull from LI just has too many teams and it is supply/demand. Forget about age, cutoff dates, holdbacks... each LI club is out there to make money and have as many kids on their A, B, C teams. LI needs a way to figure out a way to consolidate talent. Don't know how. But again, was just wondering if people can elaborate on how it is done in the other areas mentioned above.



Hawks pulls from Annapolis and most kids live within 20 minutes - we have 5-6 club teams also within our area and they arent good. We actually share practice fields with other orgs because of limited field space.

Hawks typically get the best kids in our area - Baltimore CLubs like FCA, Crabs and Team 91 get the top kids in Baltimore

My opinion is that 91 was probably the better team last year and definitely was the year before (3rd grade...). More recently I think that Express seems to be the better club. I believe the coach of Express is in his 2nd year with them. 91 lost to the Outlaws last weekend. 91 didn't play the game that i've seen them play but still, the Outlaws??
Why say take a kid away from the team? If he's with the team he's with the team. Unless he's going somewhere that you know about.
I would agree with another poster that the top face off guys are Express, 91 then Igloo. 91 has a real good goalie and seems to make stops that many others at this age aren't yet. The Laxechusetts goalie was small but was great! Note: I am NOT the parent of a goalie or face off kid.

I certainly wasn't saying the Hawks aren't great...they are. Only thing I was saying was that they practice as a team all year. A Hawks dad that I spoke to at NLF confirmed this. Was surprised that Laxachusetts basically ran skills from Nov-Mar and more lax systems in the spring and didn't practice as a team. That chemistry is huge in lax, whether it be clears, breakouts, fastbreaks, or running an offense. Knowing a teammate is cutting without even having to look can't be minimized. I just said it would be fun to see if the black team practiced and developed that chemistry, what would happen. Hawks would win their fair share...but it would be close. Sorry if I upset the Hawks folks. Great program, great team. - LXC black

the interesting thing is if you take away the faceoff guys (as important of a skill as there is, but an acquired one), the difference in field play to btw LI teams and the hawks and boston is very apparent. it is not close athletically. hawks have multiple kids who are too athletic and are on the field in waves. tough to overcome

Just found this Forum. Heard about it at a tournament last week. WOW!

My son plays for the Hawks he is 10 he turns 11 July 18. He is a starting midfielder and above average size. I also coach many of the Hawks in Football and Basketball at travel and AAU level. If you think the Hawks have big kids go to a Football or basketball game for a higher level team. Our kids are not big when you think of the elite athletes in our area. LI dads would not want to see some of those kids with a lacrosse stick in their hands big fast coordinated nasty and yes they are all the correct age.

Point is better athletes are playing lacrosse and the day of the little guy with the great stick dominating is over. Look at college. The best teams their best players are all former standout football and basket ball players. MD, Loyola, Yale, Penn. UVA, Ohio st,, Duke etc. Read the bios. The common denominator is big fast strong tough. Not LI or MD PA or NJ. At least the best players.

My 8 yr old is the same size as my 10 yr old so I can’t wait in two years to watch all the crazies scream at him and tell him he should be driving to the game etc.

Good to know that you have a database of all the ages (with birth certificate verification) of all the kids on your team and in "your area", for that matter. At least now, we know where to go when we need an age verified.

For those of you who think that LI boys only play lacrosse all year, you’re mistaken. All the boys are encouraged to be 3 sport athletes. This rivalry between states and chest-pounding over who is better seems a little crazy. If you enjoy lacrosse and your kid has potential, better competition should be welcomed. And as time goes on, hopefully many of these boys will play together at some collegiate level. They could all be teammates at some point. Enjoy the sport and the journey. Don’t worry about holdbacks. If your kid is playing bigger, faster kids, he will get better. Bigger, faster kids playing younger kids most likely will not. And if all this nonsense gets to you, stay off this website. It helps. Winning is great, but it isn’t everything. Good luck at your tourneys this weekend.

Lacrosse has always been, and will continue to be the sport of the wealthy. It is an expensive sport, there is very little scholarship money and kids must still excel in school to play big time lax so academic money can equal or surpass athletic. That's all, end of story.

Great post above and very true. Lacrosse is getting the bigger better athletes that used to become baseball players, but in today's age find it unbelievably boring. Can't count the number of kids I have coached who's dad's were college baseball players and have had to admit it's a much better choice.

But, there will always be Napoleon complex parents complaining...

More accurately, travel/club sports are for the wealthy. Playing travel soccer is very pricey. Playing AAU hoops is very pricey. Playing travel baseball is very pricey. Volleyball, pricey. Cheerleading, pricey. Dance, probably the most pricey of them all. Lacrosse is no more expensive to play on the travel/club level than other sports. Cheerleaders are athletes too, ha.

Go on every single D1 roster and show me the poor kid from the inner city on the team. It's a rich kids sport, look at the best high school teams on Long Island and in Maryland. More than half the kids on top NCAA teams come from $60K a year prep schools. The rest are kids from towns like GC, New Canaan, Cold Spring Harbor and every other rich town on the eastern seaboard.

Eclipse played well, LXC not so much. Hit 4 pipes, missed the net a dozen times and was man down 2 to 1. Righted the ship today in the championship with an 8-4 win which wasn't that close. Good team Eclipse. Great goalie made a lot of great saves. On to Prime Time in 2 weeks and finish up with NLF Nationals.

OK, I'll take the bait. In this order:

1) Hawks
2) Tigers
3) LXC Black
4) BBL

Everyone else is a mixed bag through #10.

Hawks are number 1 until someone beats them (Last year, they were number 2 as Laxachusetts Black did beat them). They just won in MD and only tough game was BBL.
Tigers are number 2 as they beat Laxachusetts by 1 in a back and forth game at NLF. Tigers had many more man up and LXC couldn't bury them in first half when they had a 70/30 possession edge. Won a lower level tourney in NJ (Trilogy Rider Tourney).
Laxachusetts Black (LXC) has beaten everyone else (could easily be #2 and flip with Tigers). One loss to Tigers, then one goal loss to Eclipse (they should have won going away). They destroyed Eclipse (8-4) in the title game the next day. Beat up everyone in LI to win Lax Clash.
Don't know much about BBL other than they took the Hawks to the wire (lost 4-2). BBL will hopefully see LXC Black at Prime Time Summer Invitational CT in 2 weeks.

BBL is well coached, but they have played the Hawks 3x in the past two weeks and have lost 6-1, 8-2 and then 4-2. What it does show is that you can beat the Hawks are far from unbeatable and coaching matters.

BBL dad here. If we couldn't beat the Hawks when holding them to 4 goals, then I don't know how we can. They were off offensively that game. Missing a good dozen shots high. If they hit third of them it's not a close game. they seemed to be playing tight in the closer game. They are a very good team, the best we have played our kids enjoy the challenge. Their goalie made a bunch of great saves.

Played them at Young Guns last year. Epic championship OT game. Well played by both. LXC came out on top. The Hawks are even better this year, I believe. That being said, I think our team athleticism matches up well with them. Sorry that we won't see them this year. Look forward to playing BBL and other at Prime Time in a few weeks. - LXC parent

Holdbacks start in middle school. 3-4 months do not make a difference. Genetics do.

Laxachusetts Black (LXC) has beaten everyone else (could easily be #2 and flip with Tigers). One loss to Tigers, then one goal loss to Eclipse (they should have won going away). They destroyed Eclipse (8-4) in the title game the next day. Beat up everyone in LI to win Lax Clash.

Are there any good teams on LI - seriously because Saltwater which is a rec team almost beat 91LI - Diamondbacks which got smoked 18-0 by Hawks is beating LI teams and Bethesda is doing the same

Stop with the holdbacks because not one person on this LI thread has complained about Diamondbacks or Bethesda being bigger.

Me and my 5th grade LI kid are not spending the summer driving up and down 95 to play travel lacrosse in the heat. He played plenty of good lax this past year. We're spending our summer weekends handing out with friends and family - at the beach, playing other sports in a relaxed setting, etc. We'll probably get serious about travel lacrosse in a few years. You and your kid will be burnt out then and then you'll hold him back so he can play against younger kids. We will probably never see you on the lax field as a result. But my little Jimmy is pretty good. He may not get a full ride to Hopkins but if he decides to focus on lax in a few years he will likely play college ball just like I did. It's a marathon not a sprint my friend. Anyone getting worked up about 5th grade travel lax teams doesn't understand that. Good luck.

Re: Boys 2026-5th Grade Fall 2018/Summer 2019 - 07/02/19 03:00 PM

Long Island parent weighing in... My kid is a good B team player. He could probably get lucky and make an A team, but for sure he's a role player and no stud and would 99.99% ride the pine on an elite team. He loves the game and loves his B team and teammates...

Just getting that out of the way and being up-front... I really have no skin in this argument as they say...

But an observation... Could travel AA (or AAA or AAAAAAA) be watered down on long island? I can't help but notice at B or "not so premiere A" tournaments. so many teams with talented players can could probably be on the super elites teams if they wanted to. There has to be 25+ teams that fit this criteria.

Do other areas have this too?

Ha, that's good stuff. There are about 20 travel lax teams in LI and probably more in MD. If you want to play travel lax, someone will gladly take your $4k (plus travel). But you keeping yapping to your work buddies about how good your son's 5th grade travel lax team. I'm sure they find it fascinating when you talk about how some rec time named Seawater or Saltwater almost beat the mighty 5th graders from Team 91 LI. And enjoy your Friday nights and Sunday afternoons on 95. I'll catch you in a few years.

I actually have a real question, from what I seen so far the 2025 LI and Express teams are the leader of the pack, but isn't the case for 2026's. Why is that? Are the 2025's pulling kids from other areas the 2026's aren't, or are there too many clubs competing for the talent at 2026 level diluting the clubs?

It’s all in the coaching. You can’t have subpar coaching and expect to compete even if you have talented kids on the team.

If you are paying 4K a year to play the level of lacrosse you all arent getting a good return on your investment. Seriously because rec teams like Saltwater and Diamondbacks are beating LI teams. WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

He was replying to a comment from the previous day. Highly doubt someone from LI thinks about MD or MA teams for even a second of their day. It's obvious where the real aged based competition is. Keep telling yourself that your boy is the same age as his LI competitors if it makes you feel good. You're still wrong though.

Laxachusetts Black has to be the favorite, correct? And the Tommyknockers have dominated, as illustrated by their record...but out west. That in itself casts doubt on the level of competition. LI Express and Team 91 are good teams and known quantities, as are the other CT/NY teams like Eclipse, Primetime, 2Way and the Express Norths. Less familiar but likely good are True IL, Sweetlax Upstate, Madlax Capital and Denver Elite. Big4HHH is a work in progress.

Ouf of all these teams listed Laxachusetts is hands down the best team - well coached, depth and they are big/physical

It become blatantly apparant, the center of the lax universe at 2026 age is no longer Long Island. That is now Maryland. Suggestion as a concerned lax parent is to have a mega merger between the best of 91 and Express. In most age groups, that would due it. But not here. We may need to poach a few of the Eels and S2S. Maybe, just maybe that group wouldn’t embarrass themselves in MD. It really is a shame. Such a void at 2026. It’s the only solution.

91 has many boys from Wantagh and Massapequa. Many of them do not belong on what’s supposed to be a top level team. If that gets fixed the team would be fixed. Plain and simple.

I’m a Long Island dad and it’s true. Long Island is dominant in 2024 and 2027. We either don’t have the talent at this age group or they are just spread to thin with so many travel teams.

I have noticed that with competition amongst clubs not all the best talent is running to 91, express. Both of these clubs charge close 4K for their A teams.

Other clubs are offering faceoff training, goalie training and skills training at a fraction of the cost. A lot of them also respond to emails and telephone calls.

To be fair as a Laxachussets dad it is: Hawks, Tigers, Laxachussets, BBL, Long Island Express and that is it. We did not play the Hawks this year (we beat them last year in OT but regrettably failed to advance at NLF to play them) & Tigers were dominant over us the whole game winning at NLF winning by 2 (& were only team to bring Hawks to OT this year & I watched them have the Hawks until 2H at NLF) & we beat BBL handily today but they are popping up at the top a lot at tournaments. Long Island Express is also always there. Other than that the list trails off. Anyone else ? Thank you for a great season so far. - Laxachussets Dad

It doesnt matter if you combined 91, Express, Express North, and whatever other teams from LI - you still arent beating top teams in MD. The game we play is physical and the LI teams are just soft.

All In tried to put the best kids together from 91, FCA, Looneys and a couple other clubs - didnt work out so well for them at Napptown

Based on Tommyknockers draw, they should be 3-0 going into bracket play, win the tournament and then maybe you have a leg to stand on. Pool play won't prove much...

Nothing illustrates clarity of mind and tranquility of lucid thoughts than all-cap statements. Perhaps a team 91 MD parent (unhinged) that their 2026 team seems to have losing records in tournaments that are not their own? Other than Hawks, no MD team can beat an out of state team this summer.

Whoa all caps it must be true then. Let's see the real birth month and year of the Hawks. No names or numbers, just birth dates. We've all heard the graduating year will be the same load of garbage, thought I bet some will take longer based on what I've seen of the parents. What a joke, have you found your shoes yet? Nothing better to do then keeping tabs on 10-11 year old LI kids and their record?

Just have the Hawks and Laxachusettes play for the mythical national championship at a neutral site. Between the 2 of them, they have won every tournament out there. Break it down this way, like in college. Hawks/Laxachusettes is the DI-A equivalent, the rest of the MD, CT, NJ and NY (less Long Island) is DI-AA, and the LI teams, along with teams west of the Mississipi, can play for a D-ll title. That way everyone wins, there are competitive games at all levels, and people can justify spending $1000's on the little guy's lax experience. Personally, I'd pay a gate to see the Hawks play Laxachusettes.

amazing that age is already an (excuse) issue. agree that when holdbacks start it can get ridiculous but sorry to inform, it doesnt happen in 5th grade. maybe a 3 month advantage-- worrying about that is real silly.
what happens when MD and MA etc do start holding back? how lopsided will it be?

The vast majority of states allow kids to start Kindergarten if the turn 5 on or before 9/1 of that year. So your 2024 is on age, and so is the 2026 kid listed above. Get over yourself.

Those couple of months... if LI kids were just 3 months older boy would it make a difference. Silly. Smaller, slower and not as aggressive. Have them play some football , hoops or even hockey. They are behind athletically and 3 months will not change it. Older ages have a wider skill level separation. No longer the case.

How did Laxachussets do at the NLF opener daddy?


LXC came in #3 at NLF in June but we will come in #1 this weekend at NLF. Yes we lost to the Tigers in June but we were the last team to beat the Hawks at Young Guns last summer & the Hawks won NLF in June. So that makes us #1 in nation. You have not be notintelligent to think we are not #1. Hawks were afraid to come play us.

But not in MD, PA, MA, CO, TX, CA, Il, VA. So at NLF, LI Express has a built in excuse if they lose to True Il, and 91 has the excuse ready if the undefeated Tommyknockers beat them.

Nice try but neither of theses posts were made by people involved in either program. Hawks and LXC have to much mutual respect to post dribble like this. The Young Guns OT Championship was an instant classic and both programs look forward to playing again. It was unfortunate that didn’t happen at NLF. Best of luck to all teams at NLF This weekend. Try and relax and enjoy watching your kids play.

Add NC and OR to the list. So it seems that it is just NY, NJ & CT that use the later cut off date of all of the states that send teams to the top tournaments in the summer.

Agreed that LXC and Hawks have a mutual respect for each other. Set up a home and home series. Play 4 games a weekend. Better than traveling for all these useless tourneys to beat teams 14-1. Young Guns last year could have gone either way. Hawks kids walked right through the LXC parents (like a tunnel) as they gave a steady round of applause. In the end, none of it matters. Some will develop and some won't. You learn more from losing than winning and it doesn't surprise me that the Hawks haven't lost a game since. Hopefully the two teams get to play next year. It would be a shame if they didn't. Also, easy on the LI kids. Look at the 20, 21, 22, 23, 24 and 25 rankings. LI teams all over the place. The 2026 group will catch up.

Express beat Igloo 9-4 in pool play and then 1/4 of their team left for the consolation game. Igloo has never beat Express besides that 1 pointless game. There were 8 igloo helmets at the Express tryout yesterday by the way.

The point isn’t about my kid. The point is about your kid. If he played in the 2025 bracket, which he would if he lived on LI, he would be smaller and slower. Just stating the facts.

You all need to get a clue. The term AA is just a way for the club to sell their team to you. There are A teams and B teams. C teams are ridiculous. Those teams never should be formed. If kids cant make an A orB team then they need to practice more at home before wasting their parents money on travel lacrosse.
And parents are fools to pay for 2nd teams in a club. They are almost always horrible and weak.Find a different club if your kid doesnt make the team in one of the top clubs. Plenty of clubs who have one team which end up being a decent B team.
And if you do make the top clubs A team, be honest with yourself about whether your kid is a strong addition to the team. Otherwise your wasting your money for him to sit on the sidelines.
Stop lining these directors pockets. They are laughing at most of you all the way to the bank. Find the right fit for your kid, where he will really play, improve, and enjoy himself.
Good luck.

Igloo beat Express twice... once in the fall and then at Lax Clash. Both wins were without Express' faceoff guy who basically controlled possession in the game they won. Saying 1/4th of the team left for the consolation game is a little much.

People are drinking the Express Kool aid around here. That b team they had this season was possibly the worst b team in New York. To pay 4K for that when you can join so many other clubs that are a fraction of the price is because daddy wants to wear his express t shirt.

91 B team was 1k less at 2900

Express A and B team were 3900

Legacy was a little over 3k

Igloos is a little over 3k. (Listed on website)

Rebels is around 2600(listed on website)


Most other clubs have their prices listed on their websites

Hope this helped.

Hawks dad here....I'm personally glad we aren't. It is too late in the summer. People want time for vacation. Fall sports start in 1-2 weeks. Kids need time to chill. 3rd week of July is late to be asking families to make an 8 hour trip to Massachusetts.

Yea, Looking at their website, the Head coach is leaving the team and only the assit are listed now.  Figure there is either trouble on the team or one of the assit are taking over. Hopefully they get a new HC, but have you seen one of those coaches really loose it on the kids, (difference between berating and coaching).   With all these games being record by everyone, figured people would be more careful of what they say to kids.  Reputations of not only coaches, but clubs.

Down 8-5 with less than 4 min to play, Laxachusetts scores 4 including the winner with 10 seconds. Then beat Madlax Capital in the championship, 8-6. All in 100 degree temps. Well deserved.

Yes, they lost a tough game but that team belongs in the same conversation as LXC and the Hawks. The Tommyknockers played a heck of a game. They came within a few minutes of beating LXC and likley Madlax...that's how good they were. Take it from someone who was there and rooting for LXC.

i don't have a 5th grade son, mine is younger and just getting started in travel, but this seems to be an active thread. do any parents out there know if the travel teams typically keep the core team together and offer spots to the same kids from last year (assuming a few will move on to other teams) and just add a few more players where needed? or do they literally treat each year as new and take all new kids?

im asking because it seems to make sense to keep the kids playing together for a few years instead of constantly churning out a new team. just curious as to how it all works.

3/4 of all teams stay intact. There are always a handful of players that move on, get cut and added.

If you want to call it that. More like...take 40-50 kids for one main group and then split them up how they desire for the tournaments. Kids are going to get screwed one way or another.

It’s on the parents. Everyone knows the deal. It’s not a secret. If the backyard fence says beware of dog, you can’t blame anyone when you hop the fence and get bit.

makes sense to me. kids are changing rapidly at this age-- size, speed, skill. between now and the spring so much can change. will make team more competitive. have seen what is out there and what is needed to compete with the top teams and now can develop it over the next 6 months.

I watched the Tommyknockers Laxachusetts game and I have to say that the Tommyknockers were every bit as good as LAX and looked more athletic. Very surprising. Would like to see the Knockers, LAX and Hawks play it out.

Instant classic. Too bad that game (and the final) wasn’t on ESPN. 2026 group got shafted.

My son played against all three of these teams this Summer. I expected a close game, but was a bit surprised that Tommyknockers lost to Lax Black. Tommyknockers are bigger, deeper, a bit more athletic and skilled, but they do have a tendency to play a little too fast and loose, which can cost them. I was on an adjacent field during their game,so couldn't watch, but heard the cheering....sounded like a great game! Based on what I've seen this Summer (I have seen, or my son has played all listed) it's 1, Hawks; 2. Lax Black; 3. Tommyknockers 4 - 7 in any order SweetLax Upstate, Bethesda, Princeton Tigers, MadLax; 8 - 12 any order FCA, Boston Kings, True IL, BBL, Towermen; and the next level: 91, Express Haugen, Express Lemma, PrimeTime, 2Way, Arden, Legacy

I agree with everything you said until you got outside the top 3 rankings. Youre wrong on that but I actually don’t even know how someone would be able to rank so many teams anyway. 91 has been a disaster this year. Their last 2 tournaments outside of Ny they’ve won 1 game.

For sure, tough year for 91, but I've seen them against many of the teams I've grouped them with, some on multiple occasions, and they handled their biz. They were better early, I'll give you that, and probably struggled mightily against those above them (Tommyknockers beat them soundly at NLF), but they never quit. As far as seeing/playing against these teams, think about which teams were at the two NLF's (prob 75%+ of above), and sprinkle in several other top-end tourneys over the Summer in LI, PA, CT, and there you have it. Forgot about Eclipse and Igloo, both in the last grouping. It's far from scientific, just what I've seen first hand. It was a long, fun Summer, and I saw some very good teams for the first time (Bethesda, Princeton, Tommyknockers), and met some very cool people from Colorado, Mass, Cali, and Md. Despite what you read here, there are more nice folks at these tourneys than not nice folks. Keep those sticks in your hands boys, a lot of talent spread out around this list...sky's the limit! See you on the circuit...too soon!

Can’t have the game on espn when the top 2 finalist from nlf June hawks/ tigers aren’t there & both beat laxachussets & bbl who is probably top 4 is not there right? Laxavhussets Should have lost this weekend & they would have lost to eclipse if they played them. And bbl should have best laxachussets 2 weekends ago and eciipse beat bbl this summer. Eclipse is way better than tommyknockers and laxachussets so the guy who keeps saying that laxachussets or tommyknockers should be in conversation with hawks is crazy. Hawks are by themselves & then there are others like eclipse, bbl laxachussets etc. and hawks didn’t play eclipse! Hawks dad.

Too bad the Hawks didn’t show up. Didn’t want to risk that “undefeated” record vs the like of Tommyknockers and Laxachusetts. Tigers may be the 2nd best team...in New Jersey. Nice try. Tommyknockers were very deserving of being in the final. And Laxachusetts is the National Champion at 2026. Next time you want to spout off about the Hawks, make sure they have the balls to play at the premier tournament of the season. Oh by the way, what happened the last time the Hawks played Lasachusetts....crickets...mic drop.
