Express is really pulling away from the pack. 91 got no new talent, Express got scary.

So Igloo, 91, Legacy, Express, Turtles, 24, S2S and REBELS are done with tryouts. True Blue is his weekend and rebels is mostly done. Force is lagging and I think that’s it. Besides Outlaws, but they were not good last year and I’ll be surprised if they field a team.

Club prices this year ? Did they raise again more of a % of the cost of living. Unreal
Wish I had wage work increases like these clubs raise increase.

I believe the maximum amount of kids that can possibly go to Denver is 24. I wonder if kids going to express know this.

Heard they lost a ton of players but it probably wont matter based on how they played last year. They ran an ad calling all players looking for "their first travel team". im sure they got a ton of studs at their tryouts after that message. RUN FOR THE HILLS. Kudos to the kids and parents who had the brains to get on a life boat before that ship sank. #wasteyourmoney & time

Rules say 19-23, plus 2 goalies minimum. So 25 max.

Igloo will be fine, yes they will never beat Express but most teams wont. They have a new head coach and that should put an end to the blatant favoritism. Still happy we left though!

What is wrong with you? You must be a very unhappy person. If you are so unhappy with your own team or your son is not getting real playing time, then be an adult and go make a change. Stop making up stuff about other teams because your not happy where you are. You are the type of parent that runs the sport.

And to above post - 24 tryouts aren't complete. They haven't had their tryouts in Farmingdale yet for 2025.

I guess you haven't heard the rumors of the WSYL possibly not happening this year because they have no money.

Another rumor is Express may have 2 teams enter the qualifiers for WSYL (if it does happen).

I don’t think the kool aide barrel is big enough. Their B team this year was really not good at all. I am sure the decent players will move on.

WSYL has a max of 23 field players plus a minimum of two goalies, so the number is 25

I don't understand the no money rumor. This is a tourney just like the rest of them. Teams pay to participate....they pay more than other tourneys because you get swag too. The tourney is no different, and run by Aloha tournaments, which runs a dozen others throughout the year. There's no money problem. ESPN signed up to broadcast through 2022 also.

Express had two teams enter the qualifiers from Long Island this year so I'm sure they will be doing the same again in 2020.

All the "extras" from 2025 plus a lot of 2024's that age qualify.

NEW head coach? You mean AA director coming in to clean up the mess left behind by years of Daddy ball town team players, and those coaches still involved so really no change. The have lost much more on the roster than they've added. They'll have another poor year losing consistently to all the top teams. Quality wins matter and they've had none.

Yeah great pick up for Express, no practice just games. I am sure the parents and players are thrilled to have another fly in guest superstar. So much for team ball.

Yeah but if you lose your sponsors and the other regions start dropping send teams the tournament wont survive.

91 results starting to trickle out. All the major clubs are done. A few other clubs have secondary tryouts, I guess for vacation, or for kids that don’t make a team they were trying for and need a team, or people decline the team invite and the club needs help forming the roster.

B team experience has everything to do with the coach. If the coach cares and it’s not a 2nd or 3rd team that the coach is doing, the chances for a better experience are higher. It’s why we chose Express this year, they brought in a new coach, it’s a lot less than 3500 this year, we are getting a ton, and the communication already has been more than all of last year on our team last year.

30 kids is too many, A, or B. So express and 91 have B teams again. Did Igloo ring the cash register and field so some slop b team again too? Who else? Legacy? S2S? B teams should be priced 1/2 of the A teams

These teams will all end up with no more than 24.
Unrealistic expectations and demand for the A team will generate a bunch of no’s...

I think kids get added to these teams every year. Is there some dialogue beforehand, maybe, is there some kids added on performance, sure, I believe so. But I could be wrong

I agree it’s called recruiting. That’s why tryouts aren’t real. It looks real. Notebooks, jersey numbers, tents set up, coaches blowing whistles. But people should know the chance of making the top team at tryouts is near zero. Tryouts are for B and C teams. Tryouts are for clubs to make money.

You are partially right. Coaches do make calls ahead based on players that they know about. Plus coaches are not looking to turn over their entire team. Usually there are only a few slots that will change. But kids can get on teams by showing up to tryouts without being called. Believe me. My kids have dome this. But as kids get older it gets harder. Less turnover. Always call and ask if you are looking at specific team how many slots and what position are open to change. Many coaches will tell you honestly. And some teams you may be invited to a practice even before tryouts.

When you say call ahead and ask what positions are open for change, what does that actually mean. They will say all positions are open. Clubs need to fill secondary teams and want tryout fees as well. Say for example the A team wants 6 kids at defense. Let’s say 24 kids register for tryouts who play defense. They have 4 real good defenseman returning from last year, 1 of the 24 is a coaches kid, 1 of the 24 is recruited kid. That means that all 6 slots are filled before you even drive into the parking lot. That means 18 of those kids are trying out for the B team. Most parents don’t know this.

It depends on the club. Last year I spoke with a director of a club about one of my kids and they told me they weren’t making any changes in that position on the A team. This year I spoke with a director from a different club about another one of my kids and he flat out told me it would be very hard to break into the A team at that position unless my kid was an absolute stud (he’s not). But he did invite him to a practice if we were seriously interested.

Neither club was 91 or Express. They’ll tell you to come on down to tryouts and take your money without an honest conversation ( I know from experience ).

You can also ask to speak with the coach. They can be more honest than the club if they aren’t an owner. If you do speak with the coach, remember that your kids evaluation starts the moment you begin speaking. No coach wants a pain in the @ss parent.

So true, Say what you want about Coach C, certainly no daddy ball issues. All the other teams have some form of daddy ball. Some of those dads know, if they didn’t coach, their son wouldn’t be on the team or they wouldn’t play a significant amount.

the problem is all of these program employ coaches who have kids in the program, even at other ages. And their kids (aside from maybe Spallina and a handful of others) usually stink or don't want to play. Parents don't have the green to pay for a program.... so you have this incestuous setup.

So you get parents who pay $3k plus sitting there saying... why is this fool on the field over my kid? the answer is simple...

Geese are in bad shape. All of their top players have jumped ship. Just left with a few decent players. They were a legit team a couple of years ago in this age group. Now you just feel bad for the players who stayed behind.

Good point. Although for 3 to 4 grand and a willingness to be one of 35+, you too can have your son practice with Express.

The simple answer is, they didn't get enough out of their roster. Call it Daddy ball, poor coaching, nepotism, cliques, whatever. The players on the field didn't make enough plays to win. Lots of turnover this year, but remains to be seen what the outcome will be. Igloo had a good run with their older teams but have struggled lately staying relevant with their young teams in AA. I don't see this group doing much but wish them luck.

They are going backwards based on stories I heard. Supposedly theres another "tryout" session for attack kids only. A dad I I know who's kid still plays there said they apparently they shot themselfs in the foot with one kid and another kid shot them on short notice. and jumped ship to 91. Great job. Theres a reason they are terrible. i hope they do beter too but I doubt it. Say what you want about lesser known clubs but at least they seem to handle their business much better. True Blue had no problem filling their roster.

There were a handful of players who left. Most stayed and are still staying. I have watched this team. There are good players on this team. But like anything else they need to really work hard practicing to be competitive. They need to step it up. You can tell when you watch if kids are going home hitting the wall, doing extra clinics, etc... That's what makes the difference between the talented kid and the great kid. And kids who do that will gravitate to teams with like minded kids. It's not just about hanging out anymore with your friends and playing. It's a mindset. Geese have talented kids, most of them. They just need to get the right mindset. And they can come back. I would not count them out.

Sure they can. I believe they can be competitive on a single A level. But they had the best team and now that has dismantled for one reason or another. Really not important at this point. But it will take a large influx of talent, in addition to the hard work. Just let the coaches coach and the kids play and don’t weigh things down with unrealistic expectations. No team, at least for this year, is catching up to Express or even 91. There is a large gap down from there.

When your team can only manage to score two goals against Roar and lose multiple times to them as well as Force then its time to reassess options. If 91 wants a big fast athletic attack why not?

Seems like Igloo and Geese should team up. Igloo this year sounds very similar to what we were all hearing about the Geese at the start of last year!!!

Regulators are the ROAR team that has been re branded. They had invitation only try outs trying to create an "elite" team that plans to make run at WSYL, Naptown and HOCO this year.

That’s ambitious. They probably won’t get out of the North region. You can’t just create an elite team.

FYI- this regulator team has a phenomenal coach. His 2025 CSH town team beat team 91 AA team this past season. His Express 2026 team beats Team 91 Orange regularly. Awesome coach. And from what I am hearing its not a CSH invite only team if it was he would just keep it as CSH roar. This will be a team built for the WSYL. Anybody that has a chance to get on the team should take it. As i mentioned the coach is phenomenal, he works wonders with the kids and gets results without jumping up and down on the sidelines and screaming like someone just died.

Just an FYI- 2026 got a beat down from BT express team last year. Once 91 realized that they were in a losing battle they set up the tournaments to avoid express 2026 this year . That’s a fact. So express had to play the Maryland teams and Massachusetts teams while 91 2026 orange played lollipop teams to get to semis then lose. Another sad butt strategy by the pathetic 91 corporation

I’m a fan of the underdog. I loved when roar with their 500 dollar tuition beat 91. I wish more towns did what roar did. Start early and play together as a town travel team. If you have a great, committed, non daddy ball coach, it can be done. Hopefully he can grab 2 committed , non daddy ball assistants. Once those 2 things are done(not easy), you need parents and kids who are all in on this. It’s very possible that a team like this can do really well. Maybe not WSYL , but still do real well. Starting an organization is hard, a team for a particular grade, not very hard. Parents think if my kid isn’t on a top team, he can’t play in college. You couldn’t be more wrong. My oldest guy was on a club that lost a lot. He was all league as a junior in high school, all county as a senior. He is playing division 1 lacrosse now. Nobody cares what his youth teams won/loss record was. Nobody cares. In 3 years, he will he interviewing for jobs like everyone else. Maybe he will make a few bucks giving lessons or at a camp, but that’s it. I’ve been through this before with my oldest, don’t go insane over this stuff.

If you saw them play, you know that Roar and 91 played twice and split the games. In other events 91 also beat Express and Hawks and HHH this year, HUGE and well deserved win for Roar, but then they lost to S2S, didn’t they?

91 problems are their crazy inconsistencies. It’s because of the hundreds of Coaches. Those guys are all over the map. It shows with how they play. Will that get fixed this new year?

Everyone stop with the Roar regulator nonsense. Nobody cares about last year or cross team comparisons . Keep a lid on it until you play this fall and judge those results. We hear the same stuff every August about other teams.

Express
Igloo
S2S

rebels
Rebels (new)
24, Hitmen and Recon are second tier teams and play B.

Those are most of the teams that made up the B brackets last year.

S2S's B team was an absolute joke last year. The coach and probably a few players are jumping to Express B this year and will be just as bad if not worse. Another B team that might be worth a look is Turtles?

S2S's B team was an absolute joke last year. The coach and probably a few players are jumping to Express B this year and will be just as bad if not worse. Another B team that might be worth a look is Turtles?


What does that mean? “Worth a look” tryouts are over and we should assume the roster is set. Or is it invites went out and families are moving in and the roster is thin? I would think all rosters are pretty much set at this point? If not, good luck trying to fill.

B teams like that will have roster spots available well into September and beyond. If they can get a good player it doesn't matter how far into the season it is.

Did you consider the ad hoc ratings are actually helpful to some trying to figure out where to place their kids and what level is the best fit? Not everyone wears rose colored glasses-some of us are actually aware where are kids stack up and want to place them with kids of equal or slightly better skill that play against similar competition. Some kids simply enjoy the game and they nor their parents are using the club circuit for a scholarship, but simple to get better and to enhance their future high-school experience.

Okay, just club, no town. No rankings, but those are the tiers that most will agree with. Pick a tier and do your research, but if a team is still looking at this point... I would ask a lot of questions up front.

Express
91

Then a gap. In no particular order, but these teams will enter A brackets

S2S Hawks
Rebels
True Blue
Force A
Regulators (if they keep the better Roar players)
Gold rebels
Igloo
FLG
Legacy

Next level, in no order. But they are here because they generally play in B brackets, which is fine because there are a lot good players on these teams.

Recon
Hitmen
Turtles
Force

Who is doing the ratings? BOTC parents who treat kiddie lacrosse like it's the second coming? Give me a break, nothing more than a bunch of "never played, know nothing, washwomen"

In almost every case the father beating his chest about his son and his sons team and how great they are is the dad with NOTHING to speak of on his own lacrosse or athletic resume. The loudest talkers are almost always the least secure who have never been there or done that.

My guess is at the upper tiers nothing really changes. All the shifting is at B level because those players are always looking for greener grass because the top of the b roster vs the bottom is wider than A teams and parents grow frustrated. Club is watered down not by the amount of players, that’s good for the game. It’s parents that put their kids in multi travel sports. It’s a just sign their kids up for everything mentality these days. Play all sports, definitely. But two travel teams in two sports is too much at the age imho

Re: Boys 2025-7th Grade Fall 2019/Summer 2020 - 08/14/19 03:02 PM

Probably because they are ranking Igloo based on name only. Sort of like 91 but at east they are still legit. That igloo team was a complete mess from the coaches all the way down to SOME of the parents. And this year, based on the gossip, will be no different, if not worse. They are a lower level B team if that. Express trumps the entire class. It aint even close....

Think you have it backwards. Best two teams other than 91 and Express are Hawks and Gold Rupoop.
Hawks beat both Force A and Roar this year, did not play Igloo.
Gold Rupoop is right there too.
Both teams can compete with the Big two, but depth is where they lose out.

End result is the same. Only difference is the price you pay. ROAR was actually decent and punished Igloo multiple times and Force beat them too. If anything, drop igloo to the next lower tier so you can then compare puke, vomit and throw-up......

If I recall Force was 3-1 vs rebels last year. Both good teams. I do think out of the second tier teams they can all beat each other on any given day. It’s good competitive lacrosse.

The Force team in spring at Blatant was clearly very different by the time they started tournaments in June. By June Force had clearly improved or brought on better players. Or both. And even in spring Blatant Force beat R$sh.

Probably true S2S Hawks should be up with Force and Roar . They were competitive.

Igloo was up and down. All over the place. But if you watched them you could see they had good players. Gut feeling is because they are so town based and coaching had been iffy that Igloo will actually be low A's this year.

Besides 91 and Express the teams to watch would be Force, S2S Hawks and Roar. Maybe R$sh. But that's questionable.

Time will tell all. Kinda quiet this year throughout the tryouts. Every player should have a roster spot by now. If not, that magical invite is likely not coming and supplementals won’t matter. The A teams don’t miss the better players at the first tryouts. If your son didn’t make the A team, it’s because he needs to improve or hasn’t developed his game as quick as other players. Despite what your may think. It’s okay to get cut, LI produces the best players in the country. Go find the right team where his confidence will soar and it will pay dividends.

The posts above were referring to R$sh not Rebels. There is a glitch on this forum that print R$sh wrong as Rebels.

Rebels team is not competitive with A bracket teams.

What does that mean. So did they get top players from other teams? Adding 2nd line kids adds depth, but won’t make the team that much better. Get a starter or two from 91 or Express will be an improvement, but doubt that happened. Sorry to be blunt, but that’s the way it is.

So true. Back a few years ago, I knew a kid that didn’t make either of the Team 91 A or B teams. He ended up on the Express B team. This was during the MS years. Stayed with that B team through HS. Long story short, that kid was the Suffolk County Midi of the Year his senior year and an All American. Not bad for a B team player!

There is B players and kids that are in between. All the in betweeners want that elite AA team. Usually the kid can hang with the team in practice, but can’t get playing time. That is okay. Go find a good team A or B with solid players and good coaching and you’ll enjoy these next 4 years, and so will your son. It’s actually the best path to the AA teams. But likely, by that time, you’ll be happy right where you are.

It's nice to finally hear some positive feedback on this forum. The whole point of this is to be helpful instead all the negativity. We should all want these boys to develop and actually get to play in games, what a novel idea? Lacrosse is a great sport. We should focus on working hard, having fun, making friends and memories. Last I checked, nobody was handing out nine figure contracts to play pro lax like we see in other sports. So let's not get too crazy.

Moral of the story is it’s better to be a big fish in a small pond, than the other way around. Sure, practicing with A level players is nice, but there is no replacement for games experience. Wins and losses and which team your kid plays on right now, in the grand scheme of things, does not matter. At all. This time is for development. Make sure your kid is maximizing his development, which includes a while lot of game experience.

My son doesn’t play for Legacy, but why so obnoxious towards the Geese? Sorry, but it reads that way. They have a team, has there been a talent exit, yes. Everyone knows that, just let them be. The team will probably be better off and happier. Who cares if they are not a AA team.

Why does Rebels B team have a varsity coach. But their A team has no real head coach. That's ridiculous.

Do you play for Rebels or just stirring the pot? Worry about your own team. For the record, we all know who our coach is. We would like to thank all those Daddy coached A teams for letting their players leave and join us.

Not part of Rebels. Just commenting on a topic brought up in this forum. And based on your reaction, it clearly appears to a sensitive point and an issue for the Rebels team.
Looks like Rebels is currently listing a college kid as your head coach. Yet the B team on Rebels has an experienced Varsity coach.
Hey if your happy paying 3k for that, good luck.

Totally agree. People say they dont have a vendetta but clearly feel a need stir up baseless rumors about the team.
And from year to year noone knows who will be the better teams. Certainly the past couple years has shown some real surprises.
Hope all kids have found a team that fits and that they all have fun and learn a lot.

Hey if you're happy with trolling other teams threads and commenting on things that don't concern you, than have a nice life as well. another keyboard tough guy. You're the same guy who stands on the sidelines criticizing everyone and everything until the coaches come over and you clam up.

Your insecurity is too funny. As I said I didnt start this conversation. One of your own started it trying to say you picked up some good players but you needed a head coach. And based on your responses it seems clear you have head coach problems.
I only responded on the thread with an observation. It's not trolling when you respond in a conversation on a thread brought up by another person, especially one of your own.
I suggest if you want no comments, you tighten up the loose mouths inside your team.

BTW, that "college kid" did a great job and seemed far better than any of these older guys at other clubs who's better days have past them by . And he sure beats daddy ball. Leave him as the Head coach and I bet Rebels would run thru teams with "Non College Kid" coaches. At this age the kids can, or should be able to play without some has-been college player reliving his glory days while barking out instructions every second of the game. Thats a losers game at this age. If your coach is doing that then he should fire himself, apologize to the kids and give you your money back.

It is shortsighted and myopic of you to discount the knowledge and coaching ability of someone a bit more seasoned shall we say. Ridiculous in fact. Some of the best coaches have many years and much experience behind them and have kept up with the game. Sorry you had a bad experience with your has been coach.

Did a great job at what? Playing lacrosse? He just left college. He has no coaching experience to judge by. This is an absolutely absurd statement to think in any way he compares to experienced older and varsity coaches.

You are dead on correct. Not saying that a talented kid cant over time turn into a great coach. But comparing him to experienced coaches is way off the mark. Being a player and being a coach require different skills. And experience under more seasoned coaches makes a difference.

I find all this talk about "AA" teams hysterical. Express and 91 are clearly very good in comparison to the other club teams on Long Island. It appears they won the game of musical chairs for this age group But that's not good enough, apparently, for those obsessed with organizational status seeking for their prepubescent kid. We must also be subjected to their opinion on what other teams are A or A minus quality, and who left what club and why. And how do they know this? Because these adults, who are not coaches or directors and who presumably have jobs and lives of their own, are actually engaged in the process of rating 12 year old boys. Which is weird, but also amusing and disturbing at the same time. So your budding future ex-college superstar/entry-level mail room employee plays for a "true" AA team. We understand that you're very, very proud and that this is a very, very big deal. "Express or 91 - there's a big drop off after that!" you say. "He's self-selected with other boys of his caliber, and he gets to play with other "true" AA talent" you also say. Fantastic. But, while your envy-worthy son is playing with other AA talent, the other boys on the teams you ridicule are playing against it. Fighting, coming up short, fighting again, learning. Getting better. Getting better because they're playing better competition. You don't learn much winning 12-4, especially if you're three deep on a line. Maybe the kids on these A or A minus teams are not worthy at this point in their career of making that list you made up in your head, but who said being the best 12 year old was the point of this exercise, anyway? At the end of the day, all these LI club teams play each other. No one is being airlifted out to play on another level with "better teams"- they're all in the same circle. The difference between them is not as great as you'd like to think, when compared to the hundreds of other club teams nationwide. The question is: is your son growing and learning? And there's a bunch of us who think that playing against the "better" talent is better than playing with it. Anyway, mark my words. I give it two years before someone on this board makes the following statement: "Express and 91 are the only true elite AAA teams. The rest are maybe AA, single A at best."

I find the ranking posts just conversational and light hearted. It doesn’t mean anything, but it seems to irritate some.. People will often share their opinions, as you have, on blogs. All good, imho, I don’t even mind the self promoting or people taking about how great the team is. I only posts that insult a teams ability, I find annoying, but whatever.

I agree. The classification of AA us just a means by which the larger clubs are trying to sell tgeir2nd and 3rd teams. All of which generally end upbeibg not even B level teams yet they call their elite team AA so they can call their second team A and their 3rd team B. God knows why people buy into those 2nd and 3rd teams.

Agreed with all of this. You have to take everything in these forums with a grain of salt and filter out some the worst schoolyard bickering. It is a source of entertainment (at least for me who check for new messages regularly.. and don't pretend you don't) and you may even find some of the threads quite engaging and useful, like this one in particular.

If Express or any team is already practicing 3x a week then I hope the program provides therapy to the kids and parents for free... As for the WSYL..... why does anyone care? Your going to spend $5k and a week of your time in Denver to play all of the same LI teams? So your kid can be on ESPN2? The WSYL is another "money grab" and wont even be around in a year from now. If you want a warp mini that bad you can buy one at IAmInsecure's for $35....Take your kids to Disney instead...they will get more out of it.

Totally agree. Just a moneymaker. The qualifier tournaments can be worthwhile. But actually going is just throwing away 5k.

Funny how every year somebody says that the WSYL won't be around in another year. You might actually see the NLF championship go away before the WSYL, that tournament is the biggest scam around with the reclassed players and older players just playing down for the tournament. Of course, people will point fingers at the Maryland and Massachusetts teams, but if your team is playing in the event, and supporting it, you are just as culpable.

5k, on top of 4K for the team. Plus another 3k for other tournaments,training,hotels etc. That’s 12k for the year for 12/13 year old lacrosse. Lol. We are all so twisted, myself included. I have 3 kids. They all play lax. with do I get a second mortgage. Crazy man.

Don't take the click bait. You think CoachC is practicing 3x a week ever? much less August? Stop. He's counting his $$$. Also he's not worried about winning. They will run away with the trophy.

The only question, will he let them run up the score like the Wolfpack.
Five of the top ten '25 teams will not even send teams to the WSYL. The number 2 and 3 ranked teams aren't even in the same league as Express. Yes, we all know the ranking are a joke but it just shows the gap between Express and the rest of the '25.
This is why the WSYL could be in trouble, club directors will stop wasting their 4th weekend when they know they are going to get beat by 10.

The qualifiers are the only positive. The rest of it is ridiculous. A lot of other regions will begin removing their names from consideration as it is a joke. I would rather see clubs enter 2 or 3 additional local tournaments. Playing lacrosse will get the kids/teams better. Flying across the country will not...

I still like the premise, but I do think it needs to be more competitive and it does need the other hot beds participating. Right now it’s just Long Island and the emerging hot beds. Also, they should move the tournament around each year.

I think they wanted it to be like baseball where it's always in Williamsport. I wonder also if upheaval in MLL and Warrior leaving as a sponsor will have an effect. Last year the Texas region didn't send anyone.

Yes, it be like a house cards with the rest. I would to see it succeed, but other regions must be tired of 5 straight years of a LI champ. And it will likely be another LI team again.

Does anyone have a fall tournament schedule yet? will there be any surprise teams this year that has added to there rosters that will bring there team to the next level?

No surprises. Express got better. Blast is a little worse. Every other team is mostly the same. It will be a boring year for upsets and underdogs.

How could Express get better? They only play 13 kids, not because the next 20 stink, but because they only play those 13. Will the favorites have playing time cut so new additions get to play?

Has Rebels improved at all? Alot of talk around a team that stunk last year? Why would parents go there? Because communication is good?

How about Igloo? They have been a disappointment too. Typically a better showing from their other grades.

Any changes to rebels?

Rebels loaded up with some really good kids. They had some good pieces at each level this past year so I'd expect them to surpass a lot of teams this year. Last year was their 1st season and they werent totally inept. Then again, the teams they were playing probably were so they looked good for a 1st year team. Igloo = PAL....91 unchanged, not backwards. But who knows.... Find out at Fall Tourneys

These all seem like zero sum gains? Rarely do the top players leave, and when they do it’s never to a worse team or do they go sideways. If parents are willing to let a team develop, all would be good. If the coach is great and the club commitment is there and it’s just the team isn’t on the level of Express or 91, why leave? You’ll likely see similar results at tourneys this year with the new team. The exacerbated reactions to losing is unreal.

Now they are Cancers. Aren’t these the same kids that were poached and brought on mid season the prior year. So 2018 they are great and 2019 they are cancers. Yeah that sounds like a quality team.

Stop with the Rebels nonsense. They were not good last year. So they added some cast offs from other programs, big deal. Not sure why you refer to Igloo as PAL. They are one of the better teams but certainly not on the level of Express.

WHO CARES!!! Does anyone really care what 91 or Express does? Or how Bad Igloo is? Or how improved Rebels are? Seriously...calling kids cancers? That's sad. Let your kid play on his team and enjoy it for what it is. None of these kids are all world and a $6k trip to Denver wont make them better people in the long run. Just remember: Kids tend to follow the lead of the adults around them.............Is this what a 12 year old should really be focused on? Think about it.

91 definitely took a step back, as it lost some of its top talent. Some to Express, some to a new team out of Huntington, and one I think went straight to Yale, but only for a year, because he's starting as a VP at JP Morgan in September 2021 (before he switches mid fiscal year to go to Citibank). Interesting how the kids who jumped from that Legacy program mid 2018 jumped right from 91, which demonstrates that it's not the program that's the problem, but rather the character of the parents who pulled that BS move. But I'm sure 91 will find their leaving to be addition by subtraction. Actually, since those parents have proven so good at poisoning the atmosphere at two programs, maybe we can drop them into N Korea and let them use their unique interpersonal skills to destablize that country before it gets nuclear weapons?

I don't agree at all. Most of them are very nice people and the kids are good players. The cancer parent(s) at 91 left two years ago for Geese.

really,,,,, what's with your animonsity of Legacy? its evident from your comments that you left that team and seem jealous that that the team is probably better without you and your kid. Now it seems 91 doesn't really care about you or your kid either. Seems to be one common denominator, and its not a coach of either organization. You should probably sign up your kid on a local B team and whine about your issues to a local priest.

#2 is right... As in a Deuce..... They may be competitive but will be no more than middle of the road. 91 will still have their way with all of these teams. Regulators will probably beat the Igloos of the world, the Millon forces, etc But they wont beat 91. And CSH ROAR is done as they poached their kids for this new team. That move likely killed whatever momentum and chemistry that was there.

THE BOARD IS HEATING UP!!!! 75% of these kids wont even playing in HS thanks to the banter like the above. So 91, rebels, Express, Legacy, Outlaws, Shore to Shore, ROAR....it doesnt matter. How about just enjoying watching your kid play and have fun? If they arent having fun then they will be showcasing for soccer, band, basketball, whatever. Everyone needs to take a step back or get medicated. Good Golly!

I’d rather not beat express and save 5 grand. I’m already paying 4 grand tuition, another 4 grand on training through the year. Plus hotels and other miscellaneous BS, probably 2 grand. Plus I have 3 kids who play. No thanks. I’ll pass on that 5 grand to go watch more lacrosse in Colorado. Oh And try outs are 2 weeks after Colorado. Another fee, then another tuition. Thanks anyway. Lol. I can give a rats butt if my son’s team beats express or not.

Agree totally! lets save 5k on a trip to Colorado and let the kids beat each other up locally, no need to fly halfway across the country to see the same game that can be played locally three or four times a year. As far as ESPN, the only people watching it on tv are family members of the kids playing in the tournament. lets do something differently on the east coast in a different state each year to grow the sport. ESPN isn't just in Denver. I'm sure the directors have a little creativity and can come up with a big end of year tournament that will make it fun for the kids and draw attention to their clubs. It's expensive enough in the current environment without the trip to Denver.

I am not going to Denver nor have I been. I heard the tourney is great, but it’s expensive for Li vs Li. Primetime did get to the final game and so did the Crabs in their lone appearance. But it’s all Northeast teams. I get growing is important, but it’s not the little league World Series, so stop trying to be. Move the event around the Country is one thought. I do love that it is u13 and philly, Maryland and Mass are no shows. #playonage

So here is the question: All teams are trying to qualify because they feel it will give their program credibility and the ability to increase their "Tuition" next year If your sons' team does qualify (because who doesn't at this point?) what do you do? Im inclined to take a real vacation that week. Not board a plane to see the same teams I can see in CT, NY or NJ.

Listen man, it’s a nice novelty. It’s cool, I get it. However most people aren’t huddled around ESPN 2, 6pm on July 4th. I can only speak for myself, I enjoy skiing in Colorado. I don’t want to drop 5k going there for a lax tournament on July 4th weekend. I’m more than happy with the 2 or 3, away tournaments we go to. Delaware,Maryland,PA,Massachusetts,etc. Plus the 5 local tournaments. Plus the Box tournaments. Plus 3 or 4 scrimmages. Plus his town team plays a few tournaments. There comes a point in life, when enough is enough. That’s my opinion anyway.

Most teams go to qualifying tournaments, because there is good competition there. And they would like to qualify. But plenty of teams have no intention of going even if they do qualify.
For myself, I don't think it's worth the money.
But the teams that want to go and gave no issue spending that money. Well I have no problem with that either. I don't understand why anyone has to have an issue with those that choose to go.
Honestly I feel the same about the e Warrior games. I think it's just a moneymaker for those who run it. I wouldn't pay it. But I know plenty who have. And that's their decision. And why should I care if they choose to?

My son's team went this year and we're not from LI. AMA.

tl;dr.. It's one year. It was worth it for "our team" bec we've been looking forward to it for 2 years and held our own against the best age-based competition.

Other: The boys had a good time being together in a vacation setting (we went to Vail, whitewater rafting, rockies baseball game, Bird Scooters all over downtown Denver, team dinners, hanging out in hotel where everyone stayed in, met players from across the country) and ofcourse lax.. it was world-class, model for how to run tournaments. Summed up in one word.. memories. All of this ofcourse will not matter if you feel it's unaffortable or not worth the price, which is totally understandable.

PS.. if you do go and play one of the nations team (such as Iriqois), treat them with respect and not run up the score if you can help it.. they're there as a symbol .. ambassadors for the game. It's one of the things that we would take back if we could.

We went to WSYL a few years ago, my son’s team loved it. Awesome experience. Fortunately the money was no problem for me. There were others on our team, who it was a problem for. I understand, this is a lot of money on top of tuition and all the other lacrosse stuff. Families have a few kids and they do club sports as well, I totally understand if teams decide not to go. If a team goes, no parent wants to hurt their kid or the team, so it puts a lot of people in an uncomfortable situation. There were team dinners and some parents didn’t want to go because the dinner would be 200 bucks, airline tickets,hotels. Families do payments and budgeting to allow their kids to play club lacrosse. That 5k in July for many people is not readily available.

Another know it all. Sorry but you are wrong. There are teams that go to qualifiers with no intention even if they make it of going to Denver in the end. We are not all sold on Denver being worth the money. But if you are have fun.

Simple: "Little Johnny will not attend". Most parents have figured out that Denver is a $ grab. And the ones that havent figured it out, we all know who they are. You see them on them on the sidelines at every tourney sideline coaching, screaming at refs, acting like aholes..... LI LACROSSE WORLD: WAKE UP! YOU ARE GETTING PLAYED. And the $ your spending on travel lax so your rockstar can get a a scholarship will even out. Save a portion of future college tuition but spend double that the previous 10 yrs on cost travel lax. Ask the bursar at the college that your kid attends if a Denver t shirt qualifies them for a tuition discount. Im shakining my head just laughing.

They are all the same. Express outclasses everyone. 91 a distant second. The next batch? Igloo? really? You see that Clown show last season? PAL teams were teeing off on them. And they have gotten even worse from what I hear from other parents. I'll go out on limb and say Rebels (unless their coaching staff is completely clueless, which may be the case) and Regulators will be competitive. Tru Blue? Seriously? Other than watching the one parent make a total dope of himself they have nothing to offer.. thats not a knock on the kids but it is just the way it is. Now lets get this board heated up as I have nothing to do at work......

Express wins most games. Hands down. Just don’t use the term outclass. When 14 out of 32 kids actually play(when it matters), that is the complete opposite of class. There are 18 kids, 18 sets of parents, who actually travel and pay to watch their kids at tournaments, do ground ball drills.

Re: Boys 2025-7th Grade Fall 2019/Summer 2020 - 09/19/19 02:24 PM

Good point. But shame on the parents that put their kids in that position. And it isnt so much that Express has the 14 best players out there. I have seen 14 better kids on other teams. But they DO KNOW HOW TO COACH those kids which is something most of these other teams are lacking. Rip Exp if you want but they get the most out of those kids while other coaches alienate and actually make their own players/teams worse.. Everyone reading this knows this, And hopefully some of those coaches that claim they arent on this site are reading this also. Stop badmouthing other programs and clean up your own house first. Or resign

How many qualify depends on the other regions. Teams have been dropping fast from other regions so who knows.

Maybe Igloo.

True Blue, Rebels, rebels and S2S no chance, Regulators who knows

wait until after the first fall tournament to start ranking any team. Kids grow and get bigger and faster every year, you get two or three kids on a team that got taller and faster from the previous year and it can change the dynamics of a team. What was average a year ago could be competitive this year. The teams Kool Aid hasn't even been mixed yet and we want to start with ranking them.

Shame on the clubs for buying this garbage and then reselling it to parents who "want to believe". Just give the Warp minis out at the qualifiers and call it a day.

No clue why Untrue Blue is even listed and Rebels are still new so they offer a false hope to starved parents. Legacy is a ghost of years gone by. The Golden Geese laid a brown egg. S2S sounds like a toilet bowl cleaner and their play suggests the same. CSH ROAR, I mean Regulators.....clock probably struck midnight last season. As for Force, who knows? They practice 1x per month and will probably beat all the above. Any other questions?

When the parents force their kid to participate (because their kid is good) but their kid doesn’t really want to. Otherwise, it’s all good.

It’s all a money grab, everybody knows that going in. Hockey is worse. It’s this WSYL thing, that really is the icing on the cake. Everybody knows after tryouts, tuition, training,clinics,box lacrosse, hotels, travel expenses. This comes with playing lacrosse. This is what it is. This Colorado mid summer tournament is now a big nut thrown into the mix. Our team is qualifying and it’s exciting, but I’d love them to say, enjoy your 4th of July weekend, we aren’t going. I have a fairly large family and my other kids also play sports. I have a good job, but not the job where I can non stop lax money away on everything. It just stinks. Youth sports growing up was fun. My parents didn’t have any financial stress when me and my brothers played sports. It’s a shame what this has become.

Nothing wrong with loving the club and your sons current team and choosing not to go. However, you know your son would be crushed. So we are part of the same hypocrisy.

"But chances are, the kids on the teams that qualify for the World Series are ahead of the game... " LOLOLOL. Each and every one of these travel teams has at least a couple of kids that are just as good as the best kids on the "AAA teams". Please, get over yourself. They are 12 years old; let's see what happens when they get just a little older and discover there's a whole other world out there beyond travel lacrosse. We know the kids will be alright, the real question is: how will you compensate for the deficiencies in your own life now that you can't live through your son?

Who is the biggest “with they have no chance” team?

Excluding the price of a trip to Denver, this should be a great tournament


How many qualify depends on the other regions. Teams have been dropping fast from other regions so who knows.

Maybe Igloo.

True Blue, Rebels, rebels and S2S no chance, Regulators who knows

Maybe Igloo? What makes you say that?

And my kid kicking your kids butt!


"But chances are, the kids on the teams that qualify for the World Series are ahead of the game... " LOLOLOL. Each and every one of these travel teams has at least a couple of kids that are just as good as the best kids on the "AAA teams". Please, get over yourself. They are 12 years old; let's see what happens when they get just a little older and discover there's a whole other world out there beyond travel lacrosse. We know the kids will be alright, the real question is: how will you compensate for the deficiencies in your own life now that you can't live through your son?

PUBERTY is the great equalizer. We'll see if all the bigger faster stronger kids at pee wee level remain dominant. Most of them will not.

I agree. Everyone knows it. Why go half way across the country? Besides, noone beating Express or 91..not from what I have seen. Just let those 2 play at some High School and save the money.

It’s a nice accomplishment for the team, going to WSYL. Winning that would be great. Something that’s not very easy to do. It’s doing it as a team, which makes it special. Picking up young 24s or picking up guest players, for that tournament, makes it not special. Id rather lose doing it the right way, then win dirty.

Not winning dirty - it's an age based tourney.

Your missing the point, the dirty part isn’t age. That’s a different type of dirty I agree. The dirty part I’m talking about is guest players, not on the team. Nothing like going to a tournament 9 months into a season, then all of a sudden kids you never seen before are now on your roster. Winning that way is dirty. I’d rather win, lose or draw with our guys. That’s what would make the win special.

Whaa, whaa, whaa, sound like a 91 dad . They boast about how their teams play up a year (up a year in horrible b brackets ) , then when they get beat by the Hawks or any other team they say "those kids were tremendous, they have to be older " and now it's " they play dirty , fly players in " blah blah blah . If your 91 dream teams are so darn special then just get on the field and shut up. The team of sour grapes and dense whiners =team 91

What a dense response to a valid point. The WSYL is in July, it hasn’t happened yet for this age bracket. Follow what is being said. I’ll try and translate in simple terms for you. My son’s team is all set. Roster has been set since Labor Day. I want this roster to stay together for the season. The season ends in July. I want to win or lose with this roster. I don’t want other kids joining the team in April, May or June. Even if those kids are the greatest players on the planet. I don’t want them. I want to win or lose with what we have now. Adding kids at the end taint the win. I’d rather not win, then win tainted.

That'swhat 91 WP did last year. They go out and recruit the top talent to win, They would not have won if they did not do that. Express does not need to do that. They will beat any LONG ISLAND team hands down. Don' t waste your money and go . My prediction this year. it will be a LI Team and and a team from somewhere else. .

I agree with you but are you on 91 AA? Because there is no such thing for Mule as the roster is set from July. He takes kids on mid season. So your with the wrong team if you are expecting the roster to stay set.

Won what? The endorsement of people that have voids in their empty lives? The real winners are the teams that wake up and don't even go. 91 can travel across the country and get sent home with a t shirt and some sour grapes as a consolation prize. The rest of the LI teams can play at least 4 tournaments right here on Long Island and buy their own warp minis. That sounds like more of a "win" to me.

Move on. Old news about rosters, money grabs, WSYL, etc. You are not convincing people to change their view that have a different opinion about such topics. Everyone learns through experience, let them figure it. If you want bash a club, okay, why bother if it’s anonymous, nobody cares. Talk about what’s good about the WSYL, instead of it costs a lot and it’s LI vs LI. How about the fact a youth game is on National TV. How awesome for the sport. And you want to be negative, because people can’t help it, shame on Maryland, NE, DC, and Philly for not being a part of the growth of the game. Don’t respond they are all holdbacks, they can form an age appropriate team. Those regions don’t bother and hurt the growth. Crabs did show up to the first one and best soundly by Crush. But they deserved it, because the Crabs beat Crush hat summer with a different roster. Strong Island, on age, on grade!

They prey on unsuspecting people/parents. Some of them figure it out....some of them do not... Now, onward to better topics: Which teams regressed this year?

Bunch of miserable people on this board. Maybe just maybe the $4k means nothing to some families and their kids really enjoy playing on the club teams. Maybe some kids have a great time on the trip to Denver with their teammates--its for them not you bozos on this thread who think their kid is getting a full ride somewhere. If you can't afford it don't pay or play. You won't be missed.

Hey, if thats how people want to spend their $4k god bless em. But just keep in mind their kids prolly wont even start for their school teams.

Express lays an egg every now and again but they are the best team at 2025. Now we can all go on about they have 30 plus kids where only half play but thats been beaten to death. Its a parents choice. Let them play and have fun.

He didn’t keep the roster small. He had kids leave that they didn’t expect to leave. Kids that were invited to join the team rejected the invite. And he didn’t take an additional goalie because he thinks the WP goalie that is still age eligible is going to play at the WSYL for him but he isn’t going to play. In short, he never intended to have such a small roster it was forced on him.

So let me get this straight. The WP goalie, is going to play on the 2025 team for a tournament. What about the 2025 goalie who is currently on the team, that goes to practice, that is there for the entire season. What about that kid. The WP goalie already won last year. Do you see what a joke this has become. Let’s screw the kid we have all year and play a goalie from another team and try to win. Who on earth does stuff like this. This can’t be true.

Don’t know if that’s the case. But this tourney is about playing in that final game and winning. Why is that so hard to comprehend. If ESPN ever dropped the coverage, I suspect that the participants would drop as well.

WP goalie cant play in wsyl with 2025. He would have to do a certain number of tourneys with 2025 to be allowed to do that. And he isn't going to bail on WP tourneys to do that.

It is the parents choice. No doubt. Just don’t say let them play and have fun. That’s not an accurate statement when talking about that team. There isn’t much fun on that team is the point. If you say the 15 kids who play are really good players. I’d say very accurate. If you those 15 kids are having fun, that’s probably accurate as well.

This board will be fun after r the Blatant tournament. All these teams are going to be middle of the road. People need to get a grip and stop being so heavily invested in kiddie lax. Every club has issues.

Thanks for your assessment! The kids appreciate your good wishes. I heard them discussing it.

How do you know if those kids are having fun or not?

Half the kids on these teams arent having fun. Their Dad's are screaming instruction at them constantly, they spend 2-3 days a week practicing and half of them dont even want to be out there to begin with but are out there anyway due to their insane parents. It is so evident which kids those are.

The question is how do you know if those kids are having fun or not. The topic was Express. On that team and it’s no secret, more than half the kids don’t play in games, unless score is out of reach. That means 15 to 20 kids are standing there watching the game. Instead of enjoying the sport or maybe enjoying a weekend elsewhere, they are dressed in full gear watching the same kids play. That means 15 to 20 sets of parents traveled to this on their weekends off from work. That means many times hotel fees, travel expenses, lining up things for their other children etc. So if you have one of those kids who enjoy this, I guess I’m wrong. If you are one of those parents who can actually sit through this and watch your kid just stand there. I’m wrong again. So I guess I don’t know. To me it was a common sense assumption.

I’ll disagree in one part. I believe most kids playing want to play the game. The rest is what it is.

What are you guys talking about ? The team has 1 goalie. Any team entering the world series has to have 2 goalies on the roster. Please explain to me why you wouldn't ask the best possible goalie for the tournament?
Who would YOU like 91 to use? Why don't all you geniuses put together the entire roster while you are at it.

I guess the 9 goalies at tryouts, weren’t qualified. Lol. You sound like a politician trying to spin this. They take the 1 goalie and leave that 2nd spot open for that last July tournament. Oh and it just so happens the WP goalies birthday fits for age eligibility. It’s Bush league and you know it. No further comment is needed.

You would have brought on another goalie for your team during tryouts. 91 would not have a problem finding a second goalie for their team for the season. Bringing a goalie who is actually not part of t hff e 2025 team, and is on the 2024 team is complete BS. Let's not pretend here.

WHO CARES! Have a PLL goalie play for them. There is wining and then there is wining the right way. A win the wrong way is as good as a loss and everyone knows it when their head hits the pillow. If that T shirt means that much to them then God bless 'em because they have serious deficiencies in their miserable lives.

So let me get this right..... Parents who sign up for A teams don't play to win???? with is wrong with you people. And as far as the roster is concerned why do you care so much about the 2nd goalie for 91. Focus on your Kid and keep moving. World Series could be the only actual tournament that has strict rules to guarantee an even playing field. Why wouldn't you play to win???

Winning the right way??? I understand your position but this is the World Series. ACTUAL RULES on AGE and location of residence.
No other tournament can give you that. So yes, if you can win at World Series then you can actually sleep just fine.

Hopefully these kids are all excelling in school as none of them will be playing professional lacrosse. Hopefully the moths dont eat the free tee shirt that cost you $7k alone in travel expenses and your son can bring it on his job interviews when he is older.

See- This is what Im talking about. You shouldn't be involved with competitive youth lacrosse because It's very clear that you don't get it. $7k is a drop in the bucket and if you can't afford it no one is forcing you to go.

Why even take score if you don't care who wins. The "Everyone gets a trophy" vibe is hurting my eyes. My advice to you is to move on because some parents actually care about having their children experience the highest level of youth lacrosse competition and you clearly don't.

And complaining about who is on "The Team" and who isn't is none sense. We all know CoachC brings a different squad every week. World series makes sure that you play a certain number of tournaments with the same roster in order to be eligible.

With that mentality then why include anyone on your team. If 7k is a drop in the bucket you can certainly pay some money to hire the best kids to play in the WSYL under the 91 name. (And if you dont know yet, your kids are not the best kids.)

Yeah, detest to break it to you but 91 doesn’t have the residency requirement covered either as they have a kid from FL on the roster. So we’ll see how strict the WSYL is with requirements.

Dude you were the one who said 7k was a drop in the bucket for you, and winning was what was important to you. I'm just giving you a better strategy towards your goal. Use all great players dude. Everyone has a price. You can defenitely use your money to get much better kids than you have on 91 to play at the wsyl for you. And you will be sure to win then. That's your goal right???

And then come scrub my toilet little man. Bring an extra box of your t shirts to use as rags. DATS ABUSE BOI!

Forced on him? He thinks so highly of himself he had no idea people would leave. He had no idea people would turn down invites.

For 2 years he figured he could do the bare minimum and tryouts would fix everything.

Bottom Line, these lax kids on the good teams are cool, have a swagger and they will get all the chicks and collect pelts as they move into 8th grade. Isn't that what it is all about? Putting your son in the best position to score! Life gets hard after these years. Take advantage of what is out there and blow it out!

No I didn’t dude... 7k is not a drop in the bucket for me and my son is not going to Denver. However, I am not preaching that people are wasting their money and the WSYL is a money grab. It’s a great event from where I sit and everyone (including all the negative people) will be watching the game on ESPN. Some folks say it’s pricey to travel to play LI V LI, yeah, we all agree but let tourney market it and get other teams involved. The Illinois team is solid, their is a Colorado club that now an and up and comer, Sweetlax upstate is in (my guess is they will recruit and build that team on age). The positives is the ratings of the game are huge and it’s growing the game.

I hear nothing but bad things about it. it COULD be a great event but unfortunately , like all kiddie lax, it has been diluted. Anyone thats watching a 12 year old lacrosse game between 2 LI teams on ESPN on 4th of July has to reevaluate their failures and what led them to that point. I like the concept but the execution leaves a lot to be desired.

Please spare me. If this was a year later 91 would grab him. They probably only want 8th graders who are wsyl eligible this year.

That makes no sense they’ve played in blatant tournaments before there are other 91 age teams playing so why no 2025 team? Did they implode?

That makes no sense they’ve played in blatant tournaments before there are other 91 age teams playing so why no 2025 team? Did they implode?


Yes, there is no team left, they all quit because the coaches were yelling quite loudly and the police had to be called.

Not sure where the older 8th grade boy was going to be playing but the 8th grade kiddie is surely a middie.


I think he's still there


Tried out for 91.
Was told - even for us you’re too old!
Will LIE take an 8 grader back and continue to cheat?
Listen you suckas, Chuka gotta eat!



Please show this to 2026 Express parents who whine that non NY teams are all holdbacks.

Very simple, the 91 2025 A team list to the CSH roar team last season. CSH is playing the blatant tournament, so to avoid embarrassing themselves they stayed out of it. They are a joke . As everyone knows 91 will only enter tournaments they either own "mylacrose tournament" or they enter tournaments they know they can win .

91 did not Implode. This is just business. They are a very good team. Probably just do not want to start Fall losing. Blatant bracket is good. CoachC top team, but rest can play. Lets the Games begin

To be fair they are playing in a Deleware tournament on 11/9 which will have really tough competition. So not sure why they pulled from Blatant.
They are supposed to do 2 tourneys in the fall. But no replacement showing on their website yet.

Renegades is basically Roar with added outside CSH talent. I suspect stronger than Roar, but will never know given it will be impossible for the two to play.

Right away the stunad picks on geese meanwhile he played for Taz just another example that you need to move on from your obsession about that team. By the way that team is NOT desperate for players. I've heard from a friend they are just fine.

They are not beating anyone. R$sh is a weak team as well. Neither are even close to the better teams behind CoachC and 91. Stop trying to build a reputation on this blog for yourself that you I. No way can live up to.

Rebels may surprise people. they are loaded with athletes. Tru Blu got some Hitmen kids but they arent organzied and may be the punching bag of that age bracket. I heard Rupoop is pretty good but havent seen them play. Igloo is in a death spiral. we pounded them last year and apparently they are even worse this year, Havent heard anything about Force. 91...say what you want but they didnt have much turnover so they will still be the 2nd best team. exprees still the class of the division.

There is no spread because Rebels will not be even close in the standings. Prediction for Colubus Day will be the following for final standings.

CoachC
S2S Hawks
R$sh
Legacy
Rebels
S2S Barracudas

They may win 1 game.....against their B team which is in the same bracket! Exp vs Rebels or Rush in Finals...Exp beats up either one of them and re-sets everyones expectations.

I agree Legacy did not do well, but fact is Rebels did worse and lost to Legacy last year. They will be on lower level. And S2S Hawks actually did okay last year. And compared to R$sh seemed a bit stronger. R$sh and S2S Hawks could flip flop in list, but it will be either Hawks or R$sh against CoachC in the final championship game.

The 2nd best team is either R$sh or S2S Hawks. But I agree Rebels could end up in championship. But not because they are even close to being one of the better teams. And it's pretty unlikely.
The list above is correct. But Rebels has a fairly godmother for this tournament by not having to face CoachC in their 1st 3 games. While R$sh, S2S Hawks, and Legacy automatically have one lost game since they face CoachC.
Rebels got a 2nd gift since they face S2S Barracudas in the tournament which is a B team. So they have a pretty clear win there. (Its unfair to the Barracudas that S2S put them in this tournament when there is not multiple brackets. Clearly S2S is looking at what economically works for the organisation and not what's best for the team.)
But Rebels will defenitely lose to S2S Hawks.
So CoachC will be only one who has 3 and 0 record
Rest will at best have a 2 to 1 record
So will depend on who wins S2S Hawks vs R$sh game
And Rebels vs Legacy game. (I do think will be Legacy though. But you never know.)
And then out of those winners you have to go by the rules. If by chance Rebels beat Legacy, then they better hope R$sh beats the Hawks. Because otherwise its Hawks in championship because they would have beat Rebels already head to head. If R$sh though beat Hawks, then it will come down to total goals against for both teams.
So honestly even with Rebels getting lucky to not initially face CoachC and to have an easy game against Barracudas, its remote at best if they make it to championship.
They better have a fairy godmother who doesnt fall asleep.

I would think they would be in the mix as much as S2S, Igloo, True Blue, etc.

Every team is in the mix, it’s a new season. Changes were made on every single team. Some teams lots of changes. Saying this team beat that team or that team beat this team is meaningless. It was a different team and a different season. Nothing left to say. One guy just wrote a novel on breaking down 12 year old boys lacrosse teams. Too funny.

Based on that change rebels wont have a chance of getting into championship. They will lose to igloo and to S2S Hawks. And its questionable if they can even beat Legacy.
My bet is it will be Igloo vs CoachC in championship. Igloo doesnt face CoachC in its first 3 games, and it also has 2 easy games against Rebels and Legacy. Its questionable game is against R$sh. If it can win that game it will be 3 to 0 like CoachC and be in championship.
If it loses that game it will be 2 to 1. Then it will depend on R$sh game against S2S Hawks. If R$sh wins then R$sh will be in championship game because they already beat Igloo head to head. However if S2S wins then it will depend on whether Igloo or S2S have the better Goals against numbers.

Based on that change rebels wont have a chance of getting into championship. They will lose to igloo and to S2S Hawks. And its questionable if they can even beat Legacy.
My bet is it will be Igloo vs CoachC in championship. Igloo doesnt face CoachC in its first 3 games, and it also has 2 easy games against Rebels and Legacy. Its questionable game is against R$sh. If it can win that game it will be 3 to 0 like CoachC and be in championship.
If it loses that game it will be 2 to 1. Then it will depend on R$sh game against S2S Hawks. If R$sh wins then R$sh will be in championship game because they already beat Igloo head to head. However if S2S wins then it will depend on whether Igloo or S2S have the better Goals against numbers.


Mad Dog will lose to CoachC in the finals. They are the two best teams.

What is this based on? Have you seen Igloo play? Or Rupoop? I think you are confusing yourself. Igloo may post a goose egg..they used to be good but lost a ton of kids and replaced them with thieir own B teamers. RUpoop will be competitive. And you will be looking like a bigger fool come Tuesday morning when you are posting to this board.

The 2nd best team is either R$sh or S2S Hawks. But I agree Rebels could end up in championship. But not because they are even close to being one of the better teams. And it's pretty unlikely.
The list above is correct. But Rebels has a fairly godmother for this tournament by not having to face CoachC in their 1st 3 games. While R$sh, S2S Hawks, and Legacy automatically have one lost game since they face CoachC.
Rebels got a 2nd gift since they face S2S Barracudas in the tournament which is a B team. So they have a pretty clear win there. (Its unfair to the Barracudas that S2S put them in this tournament when there is not multiple brackets. Clearly S2S is looking at what economically works for the organisation and not what's best for the team.)
But Rebels will defenitely lose to S2S Hawks.
So CoachC will be only one who has 3 and 0 record
Rest will at best have a 2 to 1 record
So will depend on who wins S2S Hawks vs R$sh game
And Rebels vs Legacy game. (I do think will be Legacy though. But you never know.)
And then out of those winners you have to go by the rules. If by chance Rebels beat Legacy, then they better hope R$sh beats the Hawks. Because otherwise its Hawks in championship because they would have beat Rebels already head to head. If R$sh though beat Hawks, then it will come down to total goals against for both teams.
So honestly even with Rebels getting lucky to not initially face CoachC and to have an easy game against Barracudas, its remote at best if they make it to championship.
They better have a fairy godmother who doesnt fall asleep.

Dude, get a life....

I have seen both play. And last year they came off stronger than R$sh. But honestly R$sh improved as the season went on. So I think that will be a competitive game. But I dont disagree with you that Igloo is really messed up from the inside. And it goes way beyond them losing some kids. They need a major administration overhaul. Because they messed up this organisation. However, I do think they will still easily enough beat Rebels and Legacy like they did last year. And since they wont initially face CoachC they have an advantage to help them get to the championship. As I said if R$sh beats them it will all come down to the R$sh vs S2S game. R$sh has the toughest first 3 game lineup compared to everyone else. If R$sh beats S2S then they will be in the championship against CoachC.

This board is some really entertaining nonsense. Thank you for allowing me to waste precious company time reading this. My only comment is S2S? Really? They were terrible last year too. And how have you seen any of these teams play since the roster changes? On any given day man.... Based on last year tho, Exp dominates and all the oothers are just bunched up. Not 1 of them stands out above the other.

The R$SH team added some talent, included some older kids playing down, they're going to be better than most people realize at this point. Don't be surprised if they make a splash.

As for Legacy, a couple of their top players are hurt, and they may get steamrolled as a result.

Igloo and Rebels both lost some players in the offseason, but both are probably better than Legacy as of the tourney on Monday.

And as for Coach Captncrunch, let's stop pretending that his Express team is anything more than the collective result of various lacrosse parents' insecurities. Yes, they're the best team by far on Long Island and will win it all. But that's only because the parents already lost by showing their kids that the "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em" attitude builds better character than loyalty to your teammates. If a bunch of parents all of a sudden decided their kids were going to play for the Rebels, the Rebels would be the best team on Long Island. It has nothing to do with Express and everything to do with the psychology of parents who live through their kids. Coach Captncrunch is a high school lacrosse coach who is the biggest thing in the world of 12 year old lacrosse in Nassau County, New York. If you think that's a big deal, you must be a junior high coach of 11 year olds.

It will defenitely be interesting to see how teams gave changed since tryouts. Although if you are telling me R$sh is playing kids down who are really a year older (especially if they are not actually in 7th grade) that is just BS. And doesnt say much for them. But I wouldnt doubt their coach would do that. (Honestly though based on scrimmages they already had, I am not so sure R$sh is going to be that great. Or it may be they need time to gel if they made a lot of player changes.)

Rebels though doesnt even come close to Igloo. Igloo steamrolled them last year. And Rebels barely beat anyone. Certainly not anyone decent. What good players would be attracted to their team?? Like really?? And as you said they lost players who were probably some of the better players. No matter what the issues with Igloo, you cant even think Rebels are on the same level as them.

This isn't really a debate about whether we agree with the CoachC team model. Most of us agree that we dont. Although I do think you underscore the great coaching all those players do get. That's true. But I dont agree with the team overloading and kids barely if ever getting to play. Its nuts parents stay if that's happening to their kid.
But either way, their is no point in discussing them as regards the tournament. We know they will win their games and it's a question of who will face them in the championship. So they are just a nondiscussion.

That's just ridiculous. Clearly you dont open your eyes and watch the games then. If your actually interested in lacrosse you can clearly see what teams work together, pass well, have players who control the ball, have players who display field awareness and we can go on.
The fact is by the actual season in June and July although 91 and Express dominated you could still see that teams like Roar, R$sh, Force, Igloo, and yes even S2S Hawks showed they were better than most of the others. Whether after tryouts those teams will be worse or better is something we will find out. And honestly we may not find out in the fall. It probably wont be until June that you will really see the teams that develop.

Igloo goes up north to play noname tournaments because they are being cheap and are only interested in lining their own pockets. So they put in their schedule noname less expensive tournaments. They charge outrageous tuition and dont actually provide a product equal to what they charge. They are not looking to avoid competition. They just want to keep as much of the tuition money as profit as they can.

I heard director at IGLOO had to step in as a coach because they were so bad last year. If thats true, along with the defections and not being able to replace with any talent ( thats what these posts all say but I have no clue) I wouldnt place your bet on them at this point. I can tell you my sons team played them last year and alot of those kids were selfish babies. Stick slamming, pouting, calling each other out and they flat out quit by half. If thats still going on I will take Rebels, Legacy, Ducks, S2S, Maddog, CoachC, Tru Blew and any other team out there to beat them as this is not a "Me" game. And if the new coach is a blow-hard, kids like that wont respond. They will fold. Check please.......................

Blatant fall tournament on tourney shows Sour Grapes registered in A bracket. Who is Sour Grapes?
And in the B bracket they list 2 school lacrosse teams. Stimson Wildcats and Middle Country.
I assume those are middle school lacrosse teams but wouldnt that be mostly 8th graders. How can they play in the 2025 division?

Too funny. So mixed nuts (91 players with their pal helmets) decided to change their name to sour grapes. Guess people on this board got under their skin. Cant stop laughing.
I love how their coach pulled them from the tournament because he didn't feel confidant in them, so they decide to play it anyway.
Sour grapes are about to be smushed.

Did S2S bear R$sh?. I thought S2S did not win anything except in the 2027 division? You cant go by tourney. The actual 3rd game scores were never put in by Legacy for the tournament.

Did Rebels use kids from the 2024 Rebels team? Oh r are you saying they have hold backs on the 2025 team. If they used 2024 players that will show at Blatant because 2024 Rebels is playing, so they cant use them there.

Nothing happened. They are exactly what they always are. A collection of players ( I purposely avoid the word "team") that cant score, get frustrated, slow ball movement, etc. They looked just as bad as S2S. New & old Coaches, same results. RUpoop looked good but drew a tough schedule and Rebels looked as good as advertised on this board but they have a lot of things to work on too. Then there was Xpress... I guess they have to play somebody smile

Express was in a class by themselves. They put a double digit beatdown on everyone they played, including the "2025" Rebels, which had to add older kids and a couple of fly-ins in order to look competitive. The best moment of the tournament came when the Ref had to stop the championship game between Express and Rebels with about 10 minutes to go because the Rebels coaches were behaving so poorly, yelling at the Ref, etc, as if it was the Ref's fault the Rebs were being absolutely dominated by Express (Express was up 8-2 at the time, and it wasn't even that close). Horrible sportsmanship on the Rebels coaching sideline by grownups who should know better, which was then being mimicked by a couple of the players after the game was called prematurely. Embarrassing, actually. The takeaway from the whole thing is that Rupoop, Igloo, and S2S (and the age-eligible Rebels) are all one in the same, with Express playing on another level. And you know Express is dominating when kids 18-32 on the depth chart are on the field. As for Legacy, which won in the other age-groups but threw a goosegg in 2025, you have to wonder where they go from here. I guess the only unknown at this point is 91, and how long Rebels can get away with supplementing their actual team with bring-downs and honorable guests.

You may be one of the most Arrogant posters i have seen. FYI . Thats the only EXPRESS team that has been on TOP for the last 5 years. could be more. They are not even that great. The talent pool at the 2025 is lacking . they just happen to have the best of the worst. FOR NOW. There is a few good kids on that team. You will see in 2 years that team will not dominate at all .

Re: Boys 2025-7th Grade Fall 2019/Summer 2020 - 10/15/19 05:11 PM

Why would you say Rebels brought down other kids? I know several kids on that team and the parents say that is anything but the truth. They actually cultivate their talent and the results seemed to agree with that. Im assuming the author of the last post was a parent of a kid on a team that was defeated by the Rebs. For the record, I am one of those parents but it is what it is. They were better prepared than our kids were.

As for the coaches, I didnt see it . Regardless, you cant take away unbeaten tournament play from those kids even if the coaches had a meltdown. I heard a few coaches from the various teams took penalties for mouthing off during the day so I guess that makes them all a little too invested.

Heck, at this point I wish I had my son go to their tryouts after what I saw yesterday . Go figure..... Sincerely, Disgruntled!!!

Championship game with ONE Ref, that was clueless. Penalties 6 to 1 at that point for express. Then express clearly did not touch in in 10 seconds permitted to get in box. Did coaches go off, yes they did. Then ref walked off field dropping F bombs.

Lol, Einstein. Legacy Geese, just two years ago won this tourney over Express. And Legacy, 91 and Express all had high quality teams. In two years nobody Has caught up, just two teams declined, one slightly and one significantly, and one got better.

One ref on championship game, let it get out of hand. Express Clearly better team, calls were very tough. Looked like official wanted to get out of there early. New season, same top team. Definitely a mixed on teams 3-6.

"Why would you say Rebels brought down other kids? I know several kids on that team and the parents say that is anything but the truth." - LOL. Believe those unbiased and trusting sources if you want, but it's true. As another poster pointed out, we'll see what happens when their 24 and 25 teams are playing simultaneously. Or, you can simply scroll through last year's results and ask yourself how a team that couldn't beat anyone three months ago changed so dramatically without any influx of kids from the other top programs? (I know, I know, they practiced super hard since late August with an exotic program no one has ever tried before.) That being said, good for the Rebels. Someone needed to finish a distant second to Express, and on Monday it was them. At Blatant it will be someone else getting their doors blown off. And the tournament after that, and the one after that. It's Express's world, and everyone else is just living in it. The fight for second this weekend should be entertaining.

Well people do care, it’s a lax blog. The Rebels just sent out an email bragging about going 3-0 in pool play in a stacked bracket. It’s the way it is. Don’t like it, sorry.

"The Rebels just sent out an email bragging about going 3-0 in pool play in a stacked bracket." It is statements like this that keep me coming back here for entertainment. To who did the Rebels send the email? The New York Times? Did their press release define "stacked bracket" as Legacy, S2S and Igloo? Because that's who the tourney app says they played, and that's a pretty comical definition of "stacked" - two organizations that have been picked over for talent by everyone else while their ownership stood idly by and another team that's never been a factor in this age group. The tourney app also says that the Rebels 2024 team wasn't at the tourney, but their 2025 team was. Hmmmmm. Maybe there is something more to the Rebels performance against those three "stacked" giants of 2025 lacrosse than meets the eye, although it's surprising to hear about the Rebels coaches forfeiting the game, as they are known to be pretty nice guys from what I understand.

They lost a significant amount of players over the summer and I wouldn't be surprised if they lose a few more over the winter.

Stop with this nonsense.. "Rebels imports talent from Russia", blah, blah... Rebels can probably take 1/2 of those kids and play them up even if they are younger. But you would complain about that too. Just like everyone complains about Coach C.

Excuses are like the program(s) you come from....they are rotten and stink of dysfunction. Stop denying your true desire, go to the Blatant team store and buy yourself some Rebels gear. They can even customize it and have "Rebels #1 Fan" or "I want my kid to be a Rebel" printed on it for you. No extra charge. Now take that, like the beating you probably took last weekend, and disperse.

OMG, we get it, Igloo is terrible. Didn’t realize parents now judge programs on their current tent situation, in that case, I am all about the orange and black since those are Fall colors. Igloo lost one or two good “kids” this year but their talent level was not above or beyond what is currently on the team. The PARENTS that left should be happy for themselves and their kids since they avoided the preverbal “train wreck.” Be happy and MOVE THE “F” ON! Clearly Rebels is a better fit for your kid and it’s “better than advertised.” They made it to the finals with ZERO chance of winning the final game and in order to save the team from ultimate embarrassment, the head coach causes a situation and the game gets cancelled early otherwise that game ends in a lot to a little score. Kudos to you coach. Express clearly is the best team around here in the 2025 bracket and should win the WSYL and they deserve it because they play at a level higher than any other team around here with maybe the exception of 9d1 (yet to be seen this year). Everyone else needs to take a step back because your kid IS NOT GOING TO A D1 COLLEGE TO PLAY LACROSSE. Please take sometime today and look up the word Sociopath then go look in the mirror and ask yourself, “is this me?” How would my son react if he knew I was bashing other teams anonymously on a social media platform that boarders cyber bullying? Meanwhile all we do is try to teach our kids that bullying is unacceptable. Stay strong dads Sunday is almost hear.

haha. The tent comment was funny but yes absurd like most comments on here. This is the equivalent of the jersey shore or any of the house wives programs. Take it for what it is. Entertainment. The only concern should be that the kids dont see this trash. They are 12....(In most cases I guess).

Rebels had themselves a nice tournament. Can't we leave it at that? It doesn't mean their kids are better than yours. As a parent of a kid who has friends on that team, I couldn't be happier for them. They lost more than they won last year, this year they may win more than they lose. None of that matters. My older son went through the college recruiting process and played for a team that seemed to go 1-2 or 2-3 every tournament, and he did just fine, as did a nice portion of his teammates. This isn't the pros, where we expect to hear athletes say "I don't care how I did, as long as the team won". This is development time, people. Anyone who tells you that college coaches keep tracks of wins and losses, or even know the score of the games they're scouting, doesn't know what they're talking about. If you want to know who actually "won" at the last tournament, start with the kids who got the most in-game time, and the ones who took another step forward as a result. Good luck to everyone the rest of the way.

S2S should be in B division
Express nobody even close. Now you know why they travel so much. No team on LI can compete with them.


Legacy coaches must be screaming at the defense ! They only scored 6 goals in three games.

why would they be screaming at the defense? The offense was stagnant, they should be screaming at them


They never have the ball so the have to scream at the defense.

It's refreshing to hear a rational thought on this thread. Just enjoy watching your kid play and having fun hopefully. This post is 100% accurate, the wins/losses and tournament championships mean NOTHING. Just hope your kid is getting better and still wants to play in a few years if you haven't ruined it for him by then.

What's funny about this? You're just showing ignorance. They are different teams. Coach is the same and about 10 of the 25 kids on Regulators play for Roar too. Roar is very much a town team and Regulators is not. How is this different than Massapequa entering a tournament one week and True Blue the next? Or Sachem this week and another Suffolk club team next week? Ignorance is bliss. Enjoy it.

I love how their coach pulled them from the tournament because he didn't feel confidant in them, so they decide to play it anyway.
Sour grapes are about to be smushed.

Sour Grapes and Rotten Apples (originally signed up for Columbus Day but dropped out) will never live up to the Mixed Nuts legacy for one reason. They don’t have High Pitch Eric and the bald fat dude as their coaches. Also, the Donkey from 91 got mad at High Pitch for entering Mixed Nuts in tournies and told him to stop. And all 91 parents listen to the Donkey.

They should make one of those stop animation Christmas shows with these characters since just like Rudolph 91
doesn’t play in any games.

Same story. CoachC and then the rest. FORCE was best of worst. Rebels couldnt catch a pass. Total self destruction. Igloo beat a watered down CSH team but still have absolutely nothing on offense. True Blue got the goose egg. One thing learned: All of these teams have a lot of work to do. There is another tournament next weekend with some better quality teams playing.

It is Express and then every other team. Every other team (Igloo, Rebels, R$sh, Force, S2S) can beat each other any given day.
Would be nice for 91 to play in some of these local tourney's, but we all know how they operate.
Would be nice for one of these other teams to step up and challenge Express, but Express is a well oiled machine, have a fantastic Fogo and play very unselfish.
Hopefully my son's team can make make some strides practicing this winter and come out strong in the spring. At the end all that really matters is that the kids play in games and get better, and still have fun.

I'd like to know if other parents are seriously considering spending $5k-$10k to hump it out to Denver only to lose to Express. I honestly don't see the point in that. In the space of 6 days, Express destroyed S2S, Legacy, True Blue, Igloo, Mad Dog, R $ S H GoldRush twice, and was up 9-2 on the Rebels when the game was suspended with 12 minutes to go. It wasn't even close, and anyone who says differently didn't watch the games as I unfortunately did. Who's left? BBL? 91? Prime Time? And if you think that a winter's worth of practice is going to change anything, consider that Express will be practicing just as hard. The only possibility is if the 91 parents who abandoned their previous teams pull their kids out of that trainwreck before it's too late and move to a different team, which may alter the talent landscape on one of a handful of teams that have a shot of coming within 5 goals of Express. Otherwise, I'm thinking I'd rather spend 4th of July weekend on my boat with my entire family and depositing the $10k across their college funds.

The scam is they will "Expand" the qualifier to include even more teams from LI region because the other regions have already caught on and have bailed out.. Ring the cash register, pack the tents, circus is over after 2020 WSYL. Im with the guy above. There are better things to do. Hopefully the "Club Teams" here realize they are getting milked and in turn milk the parents The kids would be just as happy going bowling ON LONG ISLAND! If your goal for your 12 yr old is to go to Denver then God Bless but in answer to the post above, definitely a waste of time and money. The real victory would be qualifying and then respectfully telling Body by Jake "No Thanks"

Legacy doesnt have a B team. There is only 1 team at 2025 level.
And legacy was not at Blatant, so why even bring them up when someone's asking for opinions about the Blatabt tournament.

Why do you care? Why dont you let this team be. Your proving yourself to be a complete F . Worry about your own life and issues which clearly is majorly disappointing for you to act this way. Try paying attention to your kid and his team instead of being obsessed with others.

Not sure who "team legacy" is, but it's not Legacy. Legacy has one team in the 2025 age group, and it wasn't at Halloween Havoc. As for the guy(s) still holding some sort of immature grudge against the organization, here: point and show us on this doll where Legacy hurt you.

You are correct. They were not at Halloween Havoc. You can look at Legacy's website. The 2025 Legacy Titans (formally called the Geese) were at the Scarecrow tournament in Massachusetts. And although they won one and list 2, the games they lost were to 3d New England Red (who you will see this weekend at Tristar in the AA bracket) and Laxachusetts Green. Both of these teams are very good.
Is 2025 Legacy a shadow of what it used to be? Has the Legacy organisation not invested to provide the support to this team after it imploded a few years ago? Yes both seem to be true. But I admire the loyalty that the Coach and kids who stayed have for their team. And anyone ridiculing them should be ashamed of themselves. And they need to reflect on what sort of sportsmanship and sense if moral character they are teaching their son.

As someone said above, this is individual development time. Your son's team isn't being recruited, he is. Standing on the sidelines watching his team's top 14 players win game after game isn't going to gain him visibility or improve his game skills. I can see the living room conversation with the college coach already: "Here's a picture of my son on the sidelines. Here's another one of him on the sidelines, but you can see he's holding the stick in his left hand. And here he is on he sidelines pointing to the open man. You've heard of Johnny X, the top scorer, right? Well my son often passes him the ball in practice. Did I mention already that he's been in 8 tournaments and won 7?"

This is no different than what 91 did as well. There were plenty of kids holding down the bench. Even now with their low numbers, the mule will only play 15 at most.

"He won 7 out of 8 tournaments, huh? What happened in the one loss?"

This all sounds like the stunad who left legacy for 91 with both of his kids that he calls " studs". He also claims that spallina begged for him to bring his kids to 91. Lol., What a lost . Go get a life instead of talking about how your kids are studs to everyone you see and how people beg for them to play on their teams .

I know everyone like to bash Express because their coach and numbers, but I’m a first year parent and love it. We practice a lot, and they are the best practices I’ve seen, and we’ve been to other top clubs. We’re also in every available tournament. 91 hardly played in any, but we’re playing just about every weekend, as well as practices. I honestly couldn’t ask for more. Some kids play more thank others, but everyone plays during the tournament. That’s just the way it goes.

Thats too funny! You had ne until you said everyone plays during the tournament.
I bet your the kid who used to be on legacy, jumped mid ship to 91, and now is at express, at least temporarily.
Noobe needs to be on Express to know how they operate. Everyone can see at the tournaments. And lots if kids dont play. Stop shoveling garbage for brownie points.

Absolutely incorrect. I know exactly who the person is that is being mentioned here , he is with 91 and so are both of his kids . Left legacy , and I could almost gaurantee you he is the one on here bashing legacy . That's what he does . Calls his kids studs and claims spallina begged for them to go to 91.

So you are saying all the kids who came over from legacy to 91 (not just one parent) are still with 91?

Of the 5 kids who left Legacy for 91, only 2 remain. The other former Legacy players left 91 this year for Express or Regulators. That's a fact. 91 lost others this year and last year that were not from Legacy but had started travel with 91. Some of them didn't play much or at all. Some of them did play but weren't happy with the coaching and/or club.

For the person who knows how many kids are left on 91, the question was " who keeps bashing legacy" . My answer was I have a feeling I know exactly who it is and they're still at 91. So if there are only two kids left there then you do the math and take your pick . I could almost gaurantee it's the guy with two kids who left legacy a few years back and refers to his kids as " studs". Also said spallina begged for his " studs " to come to 91. Lol. That was the answer to the legacy bashing question .

Rebels have just as good a shot as anyone else not named "Express." The real question is: which group of parents will decide it's worth spending thousands of dollars to leave Long Island in the summer to travel to Denver and lose by double digits to a team you've already lost to multiple times in Huntington, Uniondale, and Old Westbury?

I understand it’s an unbelievable experience, and I will be watching. But you have to the judge if it’s worth it from individual standpoint. Not being a naysayer. But the decision tree is different based on which team your son is on. Honestly, and I know this frustrates people. If my son’s was not in a position to make a deep run at the tourney, as currently constructed, I would ask the club to find age eligible players from the 2024s. I feel if you are willing to make the investment in the trip, the club is obligated to use the rules and put the best team out there. I know what about the kids that get left off or lose playing time. This is an isolated event and has different rules. And my son and family are not going and have no plans to go.

Find age eligible players? Stop. How about save the money and enter 3 more local tournaments, And still save $5K!!! The kids get better by playing, not flying. The real tournament is the qualifiers. Hopefully they are selling t shirts there. Id rather spend $20 than $5000

Legacy bashing not from anyone that left for 91. Everyone still talks and won't be surprised if some try to get back now with Zummo and the Taz staff running the team. Bashers are the ones that left after and are upset no one stopped them from leaving

Express parent- Its Fall. CoachC is a salesmen. Once the checks all clear the same 14 will play come June. Sad the opposing team parents all know their names because that is all CoachC yells . Sure he will remember your kid when it comes to recruiting years....

World Series is up to 7 or 8 northeast teams this year.It is in a park not the stadium. If your team is going to make it not based on the strength of the 2025's great. If you are paying $10k just to watch 8th graders play over your kid you are warped and forget why your kid is supposed to be playing sports.

Has 2025 Legacy changed coaches? Where is the old coach who was with them for years?

Re: Boys 2025-7th Grade Fall 2019/Summer 2020 - 10/23/19 06:55 PM

Legacy apparently just woke up after being asleep at the 2025 team's wheel for the past three years, first letting the crazy parents who left for 91 run the team, then letting others leave without a fight to go to lesser programs. If it's true that Zummo and the Taz staff are now running the 2025 team, that's a huge change in the right direction, as that Taz team is to 2024 what Express is to 2025. If that change happened two years ago, you might see a very different 2025 landscape. Does anyone know what happened to the prior coach?

Coaches are going to watch their kids play fall ball and then spring regular season. They have no time for a youth team.

They stopped playing fall tournaments because the parents are lunatics. A few years ago they played and lost a bunch and the parents were losing their minds. The mule had to come in and take it over before everyone jumped ship. Once he did, he stopped playing multiple fall tourneys.

The former head coach is listed at S2S. And he is a fantastic coach. Don’t know the details and don’t care, just a shame what happened to the Geese. They were the best team just two years ago and now they are struggling to compete with the top teams.

They stopped playing fall tournaments because the parents are lunatics. A few years ago they played and lost a bunch and the parents were losing their minds. The mule had to come in and take it over before everyone jumped ship. Once he did, he stopped playing multiple fall tourneys.


Not true. They usually play 2. Although they do tend to the mylacrosse.com tournaments and NFL tournaments since Dynamic makes money on those.
Its unusual for them to do only 1 tournament.
The one they are playing in Deleware, North American Fall Invite, is a competitive tournament though.

Sounds about right with 91 2025 , that is 91's style . They don't play in tournaments they don't feel they can win or any tournaments that they don't own which they also rig the schedules so they can win easily. What a joke

They always did a winter box team. You pay extra for that.
Are they adding an extra tournament in the spring?
How many tourneys were the players promised?


Coaches are going to watch their kids play fall ball and then spring regular season. They have no time for a youth team.


Why? Only one coaches kid plays. The other one can get sent pictures from the bench. Great view of the field.

Is CoachC's Express team going to North American Fall Invite in Deleware this year? I am pretty sure they went last year.

They usually go to their own tournaments. But the North American Fall Invite is not a mylacrosse.com or nlf tourney. So thet cant rig it. And it generally is a very competitive tournament.

Theyre dodging Express until the parents make their last payment. 91 can’t afford any mid year defections.

If there is a tourney they are traveling. Team gets the best bang for the buck vs any team. Queue all the negative comments about rosters, playing time, money grab, blah, blah. Pipe down, nobody needs the advice from online self proclaimed lacrosse travel pundits.

It's all understood if it's a good business decision but they need to keep their mouths shut about being the best etc....when they don't play any good competition. Especially the dad's, when you know that they avoid good competition you lose all say in terms of boasting like the do . They do it for every year too, 91 plays in their weak tournaments then pound their chests with their new t shirts with their fingers held up high saying theyre number one , lol.

North American Fall Invite last year had all if the toughest teams plus Cgabnys team was there as well. Not sure what they would be dodging if they are doing that tournament.
Honestly surprised they are not doing a warm up tournament to that.

Wow. This board just jumped the shark. Grammar insults?

Let me tell you what happened over the last few pages.

-Express is the top team in the age group. That is not up for debate.
-People bash Express because they have big numbers, but really just because they are so much better than everyone else and parents wish their kid's played for them.
-Express plays in as many tourneys as they can and people on the team are enjoying their experience.
-91 parents think they should get more respect. They won't get it.
-91 is the second best team, but too inconsistent to be in the same class as Express.
-People bash 91 because they want to try to bring them down to their son's club team's level. They are not. They are still much much better than everyone besides Express, but have lost several games they probably could have won.
-91 doesn't play in as many Fall or Spring tourneys, but have an excellent winter training/box schedule which keeps them busier and practicing more than any other club team on the age group.
-Geese parents used to be crazy and talked a bunch a few years back, so now everyone is happy to see them struggle.
-The Geese parents who have bounced around are now trashing Express and 91 because their boys were unable to sustain the level of play they had when they were in 4th grade and can't stay on a top team.
-Gold Rush and Rebels have good competitive teams, but are not in the same class as the top 2.
-There are many other clubs with many kids that are working hard to get better every year; however, these teams are likely not in the conversation with the teams mentioned. And that is 100% ok.

How come Millon Force is overlooked? They had a good Blatant showing - played Rebels to a tie. Check out their pricing. Half the price of some clubs. Rebels practice 3X a week and Force practices 3X in the Fall. Seems like the Rebels kids are wasting their time. Imagine if Force practiced more? Could be the best club on Long Island.

I just can’t believe there is actually a person out there, who has this much knowledge on 12 year old boys Long Island club lacrosse.
I can speak from experience, my oldest plays in college. His team was average at best 4th,5th,6th,7th grade. Teams records mean zero. Enjoying the experience and improving means everything. You people arguing over which team is better, sound so ignorant. If you only knew.
One guy earlier was writing a team was skipping tournaments because it’s good for business. What planet are you from. It’s October, weather is perfect, kids who are 12 want to play lacrosse against their friends on the other teams. They can’t play because it hurts the clubs business. Do you even hear yourselves.

I think someone misses 6th grade lacrosse and a still a little upset that his son wasnt on a good team.

Force Triolo 2025 is a very good team. I would put them in that tier below 91. They'll play competitively and beat just about anyone outside of Express and 91.

However, Force as a club leaves much to be desired.
Yes, they are one of the cheaper clubs out there but to your point, you get very little for that money.

Can't say they are one of the best clubs when they are a doormat in other age groups. Just my opinion

Age based tourney and I love it. Laugh at all stunads who say it’s cheating somehow. It’s the only tourney that I know of that actually requires verification.

"And win the tourney"? Dude, these folks all need to get a life. Win or lose "the tourney" their kids will still be driving a mail truck, going to med school, inventing something or doing absolutely nothing. The one thing they will not be doing is playing lacrosse. WAKE UP! Anyone that "gets it" would qualify, respectfully decline, take their team to an Adventure park and make a donation to a charity. The kids will remember that. They will not remember a trip to "The Tourney" and if they do it will be because of the mountain view and the fact they missed a week of summer vacation with their friends to try and win a tee shirt that says "Denver Champs" on the front and "My parents wanted this more than me" on the back.

This is the direction that this tourney is going. There is nothing wrong with what they are doing at all; however, the team they put together must play in tournaments together. Do they play in 2025 or 2024 tournaments? Thats the real question.

It's not cheating, it's just not really the point of the tourney. It was supposed to be a club championship, now it's just a regional all-star team championship. If that's what you're looking for, have at it.

That’s exactly it. The WSYL is special when a group of 22,25 kids who play on the same team accomplish that goal. It’s not cheating with age, that’s correct. No need to keep writing the same thing. I’ll say it again, it’s not cheating with age. The topic is, like the other guy just wrote, it’s becoming patching groups together to try and win. 3 kids from this team switch teams in March, this kid is older, not on our team, but let’s grab him in June to play in July. This kid has a cousin in Connecticut but he can play with our team in July as well. Let’s grab this kid, let’s grab that kid. It’s not cheating, but it’s not really special to win like that. I’d rather lose and compete hard with our guys, then win like that. A competitive loss is more rewarding then a trashy win. That’s how I see it.

The WSYL verifies addresses as well. You have to live in a current mileage range of the club you are playing for. You also can’t change your team after qualifying.

100 miles!!
What "sane" person is signing their kid up for any club on a consistent basis that is more than 30 miles from home?

So maybe a 100 miles is a lot. But the little league WS, which this is likely modeled after, does the same thing. Each kid selected is from a district. They are not a travel team. I think the districts are smaller than 100 miles, but the same premise.

That's a pretty hefty nut to spend to leave LI on the 4th of July (arguably the nicest weather week of the year) to play in a tournament without a chance of winning because the team dynamics have been changed, loopholed and bastardized beyond the spirit of the competition.

Rebels practice 3X a week and Force practices 3X in the Fall. Seems like the Rebels kids are wasting their time. Imagine if Force practiced more? Could be the best club on Long Island.

The rebels do not practice 3x a week and if they did, what's wrong with practicing? Why are they wasting their time? Imagine if you weren't an stunad? Best club on Long Island? You are delusional. That being said, Millon Force is a pretty good team.

Is everyone braindead when it comes to WSYL? The only thing they are validating is that your check cleared. You could live on Mars, 1 million miles away. As long as your intergalactic currency is valid they arent checking ship with a t! Stop making a mockery of yourself as I really should be working rather than exposing you.

The topic is, like the other guy just wrote, it’s becoming patching groups together to try and win. 3 kids from this team switch teams in March, this kid is older, not on our team, but let’s grab him in June to play in July. This kid has a cousin in Connecticut but he can play with our team in July as well. Let’s grab this kid, let’s grab that kid. It’s not cheating, but it’s not really special to win like that. I’d rather lose and compete hard with our guys, then win like that. A competitive loss is more rewarding then a trashy win. That’s how I see it.


That's a pretty hefty nut to spend to leave LI on the 4th of July (arguably the nicest weather week of the year) to play in a tournament without a chance of winning because the team dynamics have been changed, loopholed and bastardized beyond the spirit of the competition.


It is. Especially when you consider that 80% of the teams at the tournament would be considered B/C teams on LI. With the exception of the semis and finals, the games are generally blowouts for the LI teams. Which I guess is good if your kid is a non-starter. He'll get plenty of playing time. Until, of course the finals that are televised, then the starters are ridden hard and you'll have to explain to everybody why your son didn't touch the field.

This thread was more fun when everyone was bashing Igloo. I am curious if there are multiple people using the word "stunad" or only one guy. I'm also curious how many moms are on this site vs dads. Most assume it's all dads but I've found that many moms are equally as nuts, especially jumping in to defend their kid's team. I wonder if "stunad" guy is really "stunad" gal?

For your learning, the forum moderator substitutes the word 'stunad' for any expletives or unsavory comments. But what's unknown is why that word was chosen.

No, Rebels bring in college kids....Did you see the one kid was shaving between games? They also pipe in kids from Indonesian sweat shops to polish those awesome helmets..... And yes, it was fun bashing IGLOO..because those kids really deserve to be bashed. Being a 12 year old that likes to play lacrosse is undoubtedly grounds for bashing. Why is everyone down on Igloo and Rebels? Speaking of shaving, I bet some of the Mom's I have seen at these games can grow thicker beards than 1/2 of the coaches that are out there screaming "Wheels"... Which by the way may be the densest saying out there. If you are yelling that please also wear a tee shirt that says "Forgive me, I'M A lost". Next topic..............

Legacy with Zummo coaching will be a spot a lot of kids tryout for next year. My son was part of legacy for years and if he coached sooner this team would be contending for a top spot. But after this WS year and all the fallout I bet legacy bounces back in the next year or 2. As much as my kid wants to go to Denver I know the team I’m gonna be tracking....

He wasn’t there for this group of kids.

Maybe we should note the “best” team has had 1 set of coaches Since the start and what used to be the teams on that level have had a gaggle of different staffs.

I get they want them for Denver. But fact is sport is grade based and not age based for these tournaments. So its cheating!!

This is the only sport that can’t get it right. In July it’s birthday rules with WSYL. Then other tournaments it’s grade rules. In fact in some cases the 7th grader is older than the 8th grader. Think of how insane that is, the older 7th grader can play, but the younger 8th grader can’t play. Why can’t this sport just once and for all make it birthdate. Every sport does it birthdate. Why is this such a hard concept with lax. It would also be nice to not have this same conversation over and over as well.

We’re getting ready for WSYL and everything I’m seeing is age based . Birthdays are 9/1/2006 and after. I will say the holdbacks are not quiet as evident on the field anymore, as the on-age kids are catching up fast!

So if it’s factual, why isn’t anything done. Stating it here does nothing. The coach should be called out and if you are a parent playing an non grade appropriate kid, you are teaching a horrible life lesson. This conversation has been endless, but until somebody calls somebody out, it won’t change. And I don’t feel sorry for the kid, because the parent put that kid in that situation. This new blending of WSYL age and grade is ridiculous sounding and seems like a justification to some.

The problem is some B team families are 100% committed and some aren’t. And people go searching for more serious situations.

Going to organisations where they have A and B teams, where you are on the B team is a mistake. 99% of the time the second team is not good.
Go to a different club team where their top team happens to be a B team or low A team. It will be much better.

Absolutely and this weekend confirmed it. Typical Express, they gave themselves the easiest possible schedule since it was their own tournament. They even changed their third game at the 11th hour to play a weaker team. They also brought in multiple players from other "A" organizations even though they had more than enough players. These players were on the field the whole time while the kids who are actually on the team and pay tuition are standing on the sidelines. "B" teams are for development, where kids who were standing on the sidelines of "A" teams go to actually play in the game. So yeah, it's a disaster.

if you're a good athlete OR you have good stick skills, you can usually make your way onto an A team. if you don't have either yet, you end up on a B team. it's a great place for players new to the sport or waiting to develop physically. by high school you will catch up to everyone else if you put in the effort. have fun, make new friends and don't worry about it.

Couple comments from the Tri State Tourney;
Total BS all the teams weren't notified the tourney was an age based tournament. This has to change for the better of the game.
CoachC winning the Championship (week bracket) but at this point, who cares!
Notable wins:
Force beating Regulators
Express North beating Rush
Regulators beating Express North
Rush ALMOST beating Primetime.

"B" teams are for development, where kids who were standing on the sidelines of "A" teams go to actually play in the game. So yeah, it's a disaster.


Looking at Tourney Machine looks like they went 3-1. A disaster? If they went 1-3 it's a different story.


Which non disaster does your son play for?

Sorry I left out Rebels beating Force by a goal.

BTW, I just heard Regulators and Force were the only teams without 2024's on their rosters. Is that true?

Regulators has no 2024s. There are 2 2026 players.

Regulators lost game to Force in the last minute and then beat Express North. New team playing at their first tournament. They should come together nicely.

Absolutely and this weekend confirmed it. Typical Express, they gave themselves the easiest possible schedule since it was their own tournament.

I'm guessing the only reason Rebels beat Force was because they had 2024's on their team.

Literally nothing in this post is accurate. Anyone who believes that something like that could happen is just making excuses that their team lost. This is almost comical, except that there actually may be someone new to the sport that believes this imbecile.

Rebels team scored 7 goals in 3 games, despite being bolstered by a few 2024s. Take out those add-ons, and you get the same picture of that team as you saw last year: nothing to get excited about. GoldRush looks promising, Regulators are spunky. From the last 14 days of tournaments, it looks like

1. Express, and it's not even close

2. Prime Time
3. R$SH GoldRush

4-9 Force, Regulators, Rebels, Igloo, Legacy, S2S - depending on who's doing what that day

Team 91, built on defections from other teams, is afraid of karma coming back and biting it in the rear end, so they've avoided playing anyone this fall to make sure nervous parents don't jump ship by Christmas. Pretty lame. Here's to rooting for R$SH GoldRush, Force, Rebels, Legacy, Igloo, CSH anyone really, beating them. The panic will be enjoyable to watch.

With the exception of 1 team (Chan-eee-chuck), all of these teams all look a like but have different smells. "They are who we thought they were".....

Each team has some positives and some negatives and they all have a lot of work to do..

Prime Time was loaded with 2024's -- GoldRush is in the pack with the rest. Legacy and probably Igloo shouldn't be anywhere near the list of 4-9.

For many, Regulators are a secondary club - Nearly all of the kids on that squad will be playing for other clubs during the club season. Nice in theory, but will only be a cause for headache as the spring/summer season gets rolling

Re: Boys 2025-7th Grade Fall 2019/Summer 2020 - 10/28/19 06:10 PM

91 will still be the 2nd best team. I dont see any of the teams mentioned above beating them. At least after not what the fall showed.

Of the list above,Rebels looks like it has the most potential. Probably because they played very sloppy and still managed to stay in the games that they didnt win. RUpoop is competitive but has 2 kids (for the complainers checking birth certs, take a look at 2 kids on that squad) that they rely on too much. Force is decent but not built for 3+ games per tourney. Regulators needs more time. Igloo still cant score and are mentally soft, CSH was gutted by Regulators and S2S may have been the least competitive team out there this fall. True Blue will be hit or miss. Win some, lose some.

Trying to rank these teams is like trying to sort the roundest rocks.... Good luck with that!

Primetime has so many 2024 players that they have to form a completely different team for WSYL. Pathetic.

People will try to look for better situations after the fall or even now. It’s 7th grade and you sorta want to be set with a club for the next few years as these kids move to HS. My advice, try to get invited to a practice, some clubs are receptive and some are not. It’s a free roll to have your son evaluated another coach and for you to evaluate the club. Because if you’re unhappy now, that will not go away as the season progresses.

Just because your kid lost doesn't mean they're older. They're just better. Primetime puts together a WSYL team that is made up of 2025 and 2024 players that fit withing the age restrictions. They do it every year and that team hasn't even been assembled yet. Your kid played 25's.

Only part true. The only real conflict is half the kids play for CSH ROAR and since the coach is the same there will never be any conflicts between the two. A few do also play for True Blue, but it's only a handful.

Regarding Regulators, the coach needs to commit to Roar or Regulators, can't do both...not fair to the parents or more importantly the players.

yawn emoji here

nobody cares about the results of the games, except them maybe. the disaster is the way they conduct themselves. you can go ahead and reread the above post now. nothing about wins and losses is mentioned.


Disgraceful. If you paid to be on this team and you saw this happen, then you should ask for your money back immediately. Only the parents on this team will know the truth. There's plenty of honest teams out there that would not tolerate this. What message are you sending to the kids?

I don't think it is going to be that clear cut to answer.
A lot of the answer will depend on your son and what you are looking to get out of the team.

My advice would be to find a club that has a committed coach (when I say committed, I'm talking a coach that isn't going to cancel practice or just leave practice to an assistant). Also, be honest with how your son would fit in on the team. You want a mix of play time and being challenged. You don't want him to be the best on a team, but also don't want a team where he is the 25th guy (or worse)

Simply put, the best B team would be the one that fits your son's needs best and will help him improve his game.

Find a parent on the team or a friend of a friend and ask them. Or email the coach and see if you get a response. II would start with teams that performed the best at the only two B tourney brackets so far. Blatant and Tri Star. Those finalist in those brackets were Rush B, Rebels B, Express B and Turtles. And all these teams are probably searching for a player or two. People will come behind this post with don’t waste your time, they stink, etc etc. Find out for yourself.

Ultimately Express and 91 are about their top teams and 2nd teams get shafted. I would avoid Express and 91 B teans.
But honestly your better choosing an organisation with one team at that age level if you are looking at B teams.

Find a parent on the team or a friend of a friend and ask them. Or email the coach and see if you get a response. II would start with teams that performed the best at the only two B tourney brackets so far. Blatant and Tri Star. Those finalist in those brackets were Rush B, Rebels B, Express B and Turtles.

So that can be true and false. It all depends on the coaching. There is great B team situations and great teams who are a clubs only team, but are B level. Do your research by asking parents on the team and call the coach if you can.

Agreed in 7 years I never heard 1 positive comment about those 2 teams in regards to B team. It’s 23 kids paying 3500 bucks. What you get in return.
Coaches who are always late
Coaches who cancel practice every other week
Coaches who don’t show for tournaments
Substitute coaches showing up at tournaments not knowing anyone’s name.
Teams with 23 kids, having 8 show consistently for practice.
Directors who care not one bit if your team wins or loses, or if your son improves.
But I heard you get a cool bumper sticker

I agree you should do your research. Ask friends. Definitely call coaches. And ask straight up direct answers. If you put them on the spot sometimes you can see if they give you a straight answer or the run around.
But honestly I would just stay away from Express and 91 B teams. Even if a team did well one year, it wont last. Better players often get absorbed by higher level team or leave. The organisation doesnt care about the team, so even if you get a good coach initially, the coach is fighting a losing battle without support. And they get fed up.
Go to an organisation that has one team at its age level that just happens to be an B team.

So just Express and 91? No opinion on Force B, Igloo B, Rebels B, Rush B? And it’s all the coach. Find a good one. All those clubs will support B teams, but you need a dedicated coach. And you also need dedication from the players to fully commit. Get that and it can be a C team and you’ll be happy. Point is, a lot of good advice here that people are sharing. Best suggestion was call the coach or club and go to a practice and determine if it fits both ways. Ask how many middies, attack, and defensemen are on the team. Ask how often to you practice, do you have a coach that just does defense and goalies, etc etc. Great responses. I guess B team parents are saner than A team parents...that is a joke.

I specifically stated in my post go to an organisation with one team which is a B team. So that applues to all organisations that have multiple teams. The fact is those organisations only care about theur primary team. You can have a good coach but it wont last. And you dont want to hace to hop around. The last time there was a decent B team in a multiple team organisation was with Legacy when they had the Blue Devils. And we all know what happened to that team.
So do all your research, but I would stick to an organisation with one team that hapoens to be a B team.

I know this is not going to be a popular post, but I'm not sure about 91 and Express B teams. Sure, at our level they are struggling; however, I have a senior and a freshman as well and have seen how they have developed in the past. 91 in particular has historically had some very good B teams. 2019 White, 2020 Orange (both well represented at DI schools), 2021 Ambush, 2022 United (who went off an their own under the 91 umbrella) and 2023 Warriors have all been very well coached and competitive teams that play in the top divisions at top tournaments. 2024 and below are still struggling, but they will likely solidify based on historical data. Express had a very good B team at 2020, but they have really failed to produce a high quality B team for awhile. With that being said, their B teams are still good and well represented in many high level touneys and many are coached by the same guys that coach the private schools. The issue with these clubs is that now they are starting 3rd teams on grade levels. I think the market is just too saturated at this point to be able to maintain a quality 3rd option.
I guess it depends on what you're looking for. The bigger clubs definitely offer more in the lines of practice and training. Teams like Turtles, Rebels, Force, Icon, Igloo, etc... are very much hit or miss during the winter and spring. Whereas 91 and Express generally offer included year round training to everyone who cuts the check. And that check is smaller than the parents of A teams are writing.

Agree that these were great B team options but that was before every club had a b team. The landscape has completely changed. More kids playing and have many more options. Also, clubs are using second rate coaches with younger B teams and players don't get development. Just because the kid was a 4 year starter doesnt make him a qualified youth lacrosse coach.

These clubs have completely changed. In the past I agree on 91 there were some decent B teams. Now those B and C teams for those organisations are about an infusion of cash. Nothibg else. And its not a smaller check. Its the same check the A team writes anymore.
And now other teams besides 91 and Express all train year round and have clear laud out fall, wibter, spribg, and summer training with year round tournanents fall, spring, and summer.
Unless you are on the A team in 91 or Express, you are much better going somewhere else.

Everything you said about the other years B teams are true. For whatever reason this year just never seemed to be able to get that highly committed coach. Those other years 2022,2023, a few others, those coaches are top notch. You used the word to describe this year as struggling. Struggling is maybe not winning a lot of games. Coaches not showing, canceling practices all the time, no director support, 80 percent of the team not coming to practice. The term is use is disaster.

I suggest epic jokers, empire, and turtles. They only have 1 team and are pretty decent. But it also depends on where you live and how far you want to drive for practices

I think it’s all great info and a lot these last posts have been honest and respectful. A lot better than reading endless pages about the the WSYL being a money grab, holdbacks ruining the sport, accusatory cheating and name calling. Reality is there more players closer to B/B+ than AA.

"The last time there was a decent B team in a multiple team organisation was with Legacy when they had the Blue Devils. And we all know what happened to that team."

And what exactly happened, Mr. Know it All? Interesting you allude to something without actually describing it, which means you really don't know and are just talking out of your carbon-alloy shaft. That Blue Devils team had great coaches (including and especially the head coach) and solid talent, and was fully supported by Legacy. "What happened" is what happens to every team in every organization at some point: whispering begins on the sidelines by juvenile adults, followed by complaining in cliques, which then leads to certain parents deciding to leave convinced that the grass is greener elsewhere. Also, it probably didn't help that certain parents from Legacy's A team made spectacles of themselves at a tournament, becoming physically threatening and using profanity in front of the kids when they learned that their A team would not be allowed to play the Blue Devils in a championship (despite it being a "B" tournament) and that the Blue Devils, and not the "A" Geese, would be getting the t-shirts and hats (which my son indifferently tossed in the trash a long time ago). Talk about mortifying. It was awful watching 10 year olds with tears in their eyes begging their parents to "stop", and that pretty much sealed the deal for a bunch of us who left the following year. Not surprisingly, these were the same classy people from West Islip (although one particular vulgar loudmouth was from Sachem) who later left the Geese because, at some point in the past, one of the Legacy coaches cut some of their sons from the town travel team, and of course revenge had to be exacted. If you read this forum, you'll see they're still at it 4 or 5 years after the fact, bashing Legacy and that coach because their emotional boo-boo from West Islip PAL still hasn't healed (that Sachem person is just a bad egg). Sad and pathetic. But no, there's no reason as an organization can't have a good A and B team, as long as you keep the trash where it belongs - off the sidelines and in the bin.

It’s hard to argue that parents are not part of the equation. But I like mentioned earlier, there good B teams still. And this is two years ago.

If you had read my entire post instead of concentrating on the final sentence you would realise this wasnt an insult to Blue Devils. In fact it was a compliment. It was one of the few possibly only really good B team in an organization where there were multiple teams in 2025 age bracket. And it had really good coaches. However, when everything happened with the Geese, and I agree how badly those parents acted who left, Legacy dissolved the Blue Devils and kept only the Geese to try and save it. I think in the end if they had concentrated as much on mantaining the Blue Devils, they would have bern more successful. But these organizations prioritize there A team over their B team.
Ultimately people who want a B team are better with an organization with only one team in the age bracket.

Find a parent on the team or a friend of a friend and ask them. Or email the coach and see if you get a response.

Turtles, LILC, Epic Jokers... any of those are pretty safe
Any these teams are there main teams. Not secondary to another A team.


Definitely Express Davis.

Yes definitely, there will be plenty of open spots once people start bailing. Especially after what they just pulled at Tristar. Your massive tuition comes with a front row seat to watch his kid play the whole game even though he doesn't pay a dime.


What they pulled at Tri-Star? What do you mean?

everyone at express got their helmets already so why did they have players on the field with helmets from other clubs? why didn't the players that pay to play get on the field? express davis parents have a good argument for a refund so they can find a better home for their kid. there are plenty of other teams looking for players where your kid won't be taught that cheating is okay.

Wow. That shows you how little Express thinks about their lower level teams.
When CoachC cheats like that with his A team he brings helmets and uniforns for the kids to wear that are not on the team, but he brought in to play.

There was 1 kid without an express helmet and that 1 kid filled in for a kid who was injured. I dont see anything wrong with that.

And what exactly happened, Mr. Know it All? Interesting you allude to something without actually describing it, which means you really don't know and are just talking out of your carbon-alloy shaft. That Blue Devils team had great coaches (including and especially the head coach) and solid talent, and was fully supported by Legacy. "What happened" is what happens to every team in every organization at some point: whispering begins on the sidelines by juvenile adults, followed by complaining in cliques, which then leads to certain parents deciding to leave convinced that the grass is greener elsewhere. Also, it probably didn't help that certain parents from Legacy's A team made spectacles of themselves at a tournament, becoming physically threatening and using profanity in front of the kids when they learned that their A team would not be allowed to play the Blue Devils in a championship (despite it being a "B" tournament) and that the Blue Devils, and not the "A" Geese, would be getting the t-shirts and hats (which my son indifferently tossed in the trash a long time ago). Talk about mortifying. It was awful watching 10 year olds with tears in their eyes begging their parents to "stop", and that pretty much sealed the deal for a bunch of us who left the following year. Not surprisingly, these were the same classy people from West Islip (although one particular vulgar loudmouth was from Sachem) who later left the Geese because, at some point in the past, one of the Legacy coaches cut some of their sons from the town travel team, and of course revenge had to be exacted. If you read this forum, you'll see they're still at it 4 or 5 years after the fact, bashing Legacy and that coach because their emotional boo-boo from West Islip PAL still hasn't healed (that Sachem person is just a bad egg). Sad and pathetic. But no, there's no reason as an organization can't have a good A and B team, as long as you keep the trash where it belongs - off the sidelines and in the bin.


If you had read my entire post instead of concentrating on the final sentence you would realise this wasnt an insult to Blue Devils. In fact it was a compliment. It was one of the few possibly only really good B team in an organization where there were multiple teams in 2025 age bracket. And it had really good coaches. However, when everything happened with the Geese, and I agree how badly those parents acted who left, Legacy dissolved the Blue Devils and kept only the Geese to try and save it. I think in the end if they had concentrated as much on mantaining the Blue Devils, they would have bern more successful. But these organizations prioritize there A team over their B team.
Ultimately people who want a B team are better with an organization with only one team in the age bracket.


I apologize to you for taking your comment the wrong way. But you should know that Legacy didn't dissolve the Blue Devils, the parents left. Legacy would have been more than happy to keep that team going. And why not? They were competitive, winning 2 championships in 2 years. The ironic part is that there are several players from that 2016/17, 2017/18 Legacy Blue Devils "B" team, like my son, who now play for "A" CoachC, R$SH GoldRush, Rebels and Team 91. Legacy should have "promoted" those kids to the Geese once that group of 5 parents left Legacy mid-season to try out for 91 back in the spring of '18. It was pretty foolish - they were labeled as "B" kids as 9 year olds and now they're handing it to the Geese while playing on A squads for other organizations. Maybe they're not the "best of the best", but it looks like the Geese could sure use them now. It's unreal, that that small group of disgruntled parents wound up destroying two teams in the 2025 age group for Legacy. I'm sure Karma will deal with them eventually. But maybe this story has a happy ending - the tide carried out the seaweed, and there are rumors that Legacy brought down the Taz coaching staff to work with the Geese and that they have them practicing with the 2024 team. My son is happy where he is, but I wouldn't automatically rule out a return to Legacy tryouts next year if that were true. There's still a few years of travel lacrosse left, the wheel could turn again.

I agree. You have 20 to 23 kids on a team. You generally have 3 lines of middies. If soneone is injured or cant make it, the other kids just get more playing time. If you are bringing in soneone not on the team, you are just cheating and looking to make your team do better by using an A player from another team thats not at the tournament or has a different schedule.

Sounds like sour grapes. If you knew the story of why he left then you would never post something like this. He didn't bail out. The organization he was with has a history of running off coaches. It's a shame of what it became because what the organization stood for was awesome. Too much dysfunction and gossip eventually took it down.

He's an outstanding coach, if he wasn't so far away from where we are my son would be with him without question. I agree they probably came out to play in tougher tournaments than they should have. But knowing him, he probably wanted to challenge them after the way they finished the summer. Nothing wrong with that.

You dont know anything about that team. Most of that team is made up of the same kids that were on Mamaz Boyz. And parents were unhappy with Mamaz Boyz owner, not the coach.
He established Epic Jokers so Eastend kids would have a competitive club team that wasnt too far to get to. Most teams are a far drive for families on the east end of suffolk. I know people on that team and they love their coach and find it to be a really positive experience.
And if they want to try tournaments in the A bracket to challenge themselves, then thats theur prerogative. Fall ball is all about figuring out where your kids are at skillwise and what needs to be worked on.

True and nothing wrong with it, but I think scrimmages before the first tourney is a better way to gauge things.

Scrimmages are useful but they dont replicate real game situations at a tourney where you are playing 3 games minimum with real rules. In the end its up to each team what bracket in a tourney they choose to register to play in. And if your going to try the A bracket, you may as well try it in the fall. And you never know. Plenty of teams dont do well in the A bracket in the Fall. Yet by spring and summer show up at tourneys amazingly better. And vice versa. Either way its noones business what another team chooses to play in. People need to concentrate on their own kid and his team.
Looking forward to spring and summer. I think it will be an intrtesting year.

Looks correct


If by "correct", you mean "all of these teams are basically the same and would trade wins/losses depending on the day they play each other" then yeah....this list of rankings is correct


Forget about ranking all these teams. They're all going to face each other and like the other poster mentioned will trade wins and losses. Nobody in this group is the clear top of the B teams.
And there are a ton of other teams these guys will see at tournaments. E3, 24, Recon, 3 Village, Checkmate come to mind as teams to include in the B group

I know this is not going to be a popular post, but I'm not sure about 91 and Express B teams. Sure, at our level they are struggling; however, I have a senior and a freshman as well and have seen how they have developed in the past. 91 in particular has historically had some very good B teams. 2019 White, 2020 Orange (both well represented at DI schools), 2021 Ambush, 2022 United (who went off an their own under the 91 umbrella) and 2023 Warriors have all been very well coached and competitive teams that play in the top divisions at top tournaments. 2024 and below are still struggling, but they will likely solidify based on historical data. Express had a very good B team at 2020, but they have really failed to produce a high quality B team for awhile. With that being said, their B teams are still good and well represented in many high level touneys and many are coached by the same guys that coach the private schools. The issue with these clubs is that now they are starting 3rd teams on grade levels. I think the market is just too saturated at this point to be able to maintain a quality 3rd option.
I guess it depends on what you're looking for. The bigger clubs definitely offer more in the lines of practice and training. Teams like Turtles, Rebels, Force, Icon, Igloo, etc... are very much hit or miss during the winter and spring. Whereas 91 and Express generally offer included year round training to everyone who cuts the check. And that check is smaller than the parents of A teams are writing.


Agree that these were great B team options but that was before every club had a b team. The landscape has completely changed. More kids playing and have many more options. Also, clubs are using second rate coaches with younger B teams and players don't get development. Just because the kid was a 4 year starter doesnt make him a qualified youth lacrosse coach.


Everything you said about the other years B teams are true. For whatever reason this year just never seemed to be able to get that highly committed coach. Those other years 2022,2023, a few others, those coaches are top notch. You used the word to describe this year as struggling. Struggling is maybe not winning a lot of games. Coaches not showing, canceling practices all the time, no director support, 80 percent of the team not coming to practice. The term is use is disaster.


I think it’s all great info and a lot these last posts have been honest and respectful. A lot better than reading endless pages about the the WSYL being a money grab, holdbacks ruining the sport, accusatory cheating and name calling. Reality is there more players closer to B/B+ than AA.


It's amazing how quickly the travel lax landscape is changing. I truly has become as much about money as it has about developing kids. The truth is, most "B" teams have a few "A" team players and most "A" teams have a few "B" team players.

It’s a business and that’s true of all youth sports. Fact is, it’s a 6 billion dollar industry, last I heard. The problem with B players on A teams is that very few want to play on a B team. And understand that because some B teams are run so poorly. But there are great B team situations out there and generally they are always looking for a player or two. I won’t mention clubs, not fair. But you are the consumer, why not find the best situation. No reason to wait for tryouts every year, if you are unhappy and think the team is going nowhere go do some research and call coaches and parents. Nice thing about B teams is they are always looking to improve roster.

Depends on the team. But for the most part yes, but would likely be the best player or first line on a good B team. But parents don’t get that and think it’s about development and hang onto the few minutes their son gets. Never realizing that leaving the team is better for longer term. But you know a lot parents love bragging they are an A team. Lax intervention time. If your son isn’t seeing playing time on his team now, he will likely never crack the lineup. Instead of pep talking him on the way to practice and telling him what he did wrong at practice on the ride home. Ask him was it fun or do want play somewhere that you can’t be a starter.

WOW! That sounds just like my son. Except, well, he's really not my son. He's a koala. We dress him up as a boy. Anyway, he doesn't play. I think it's cause he's always just hanging around at practice, not doing much, just hanging and eating eucalyptus leaves. I'm sure he'd be better if the coaches paid more attention to him and also when we give him a stick he just eats it. It's not his fault he likes fiber. I'm pretty sure he only made the team because the coach is a mule. I don't care. We live in a lacrosse town and all the moms talk about what teams their kids are on. Of course, mine isn't a kid, he's a joey. But whatever, it keeps the wife happy. She's not too bright. Anyway, she talks about little joey hanging around on the A team and I get to stay late a work making some extra dough to pay for it all. Except, I'm not always at work - sometimes I'm getting a little action with this fox that my old lady don't know about. It's the lax life baby! Hey - why do all these coaches have such white teeth anyway?

This conversation is going nowhere. Lets talk about the WSYL...and the money maker that has become... Lets talk about teams that qualify (at the real tournament) and then have the stones to say they don't want to go. Will any qualifying team have the decency to poll the parents, as to if they even want to go to Denver, collectively as a group? Will these organizations realize turning Denver down is just as good as going in terms of "Club Notoriety"? Lets talk about that... What happens is 1/2 the parents want to go and half dont? How about that for conversation?

WSYL is a waste of money no reason to go ask all the older boys if it really mattered if they went and 98% would say it does not matter . Save your money and go on a family trip .. Wait until the people go and do not play let me know how many kids will be looking for new homes next year

Listen it’s all a money grab. That’s just how it is. I went to yankees/astros game, tickets were a ripoff, parking was a ripoff. The 2 rounds of beer I bought for my 3 friends was a ripoff. Everything about that night was a ripoff. However I chose to go. I knew it would be a ripoff. We as families make the choice to allow our kids to play club lax or club anything I should say. It is a ripoff. I agree. We choose to do this. Everyone should know the deal going in. Some people have tons of money, some people go into debt to have kids play travel sports. I don’t think I would do that, but some people do. Everyone has to do what’s right for their son and family, what’s right for you, may not be right for someone else.

Re: Boys 2025-7th Grade Fall 2019/Summer 2020 - 11/01/19 03:56 PM

My son's team will participate in the qualifiers, but knowing that we have no chance of beating Express (as the rest of you do not), we won't be voting to go if the team qualifies. Why? We already play all the top teams in the nation right here on the East Coast, so we have already experienced playing at the top level of the sport. And then we'd have just played all the top teams in the Northeast at the qualifiers. For a middle of the pack team like ours, why spend upwards of $10K to do the same thing over the 4th of July weekend in a landlocked state that's known for its winter activities? Now, if our team was in a seesaw battle with Express over the past two seasons and it was anyone's game, then that would be a different calculation. But it's not. As a matter of fact, I think it would pretty cool if every team declined to go, and Express' recruiting and pilfering techniques were rewarded by them traveling to Colorado to play second tier teams from Montana and Texas named "Roadrunners" or "Yosemite Sams" or whatever. Also, our team has decided to not add 8th graders, so why put ourselves in a position to compete with teams who are looking to maximize their advantage under the rules? No thanks. But all that being said, don't be surprised if the 2025 teams look a bit different next year and the competitive landscape shifts, as the deck reshuffles after parents realize that its in their son's best interest to choose a program that develops them and puts them in the best position to play college lacrosse, and not win a trophy in Denver.

I think you're going to see some player movement next year, as the focus shifts from "what team gives my son the best chance to win in Denver" to "which coach/organization gives my son the greatest opportunity to be recruited?" And I think a big part of being recruited is getting meaningful playing time. If you're concerned about your son's playing time, but think you've made the right choice because you're with a "winning" program, it might be time to explore better options.

O2 is from NJ and just merged with Hudson Valley Express. I've typically seen them more at box tournaments than field tournaments, so will be interesting to see how they are.
Recon is an organization that has been around Long Island for a while. They are typically better at the HS ages than youth

Yup they did. And they are not the only ones. R$sh did as well. Teams are putting 2024 kids in their tournaments who meet the Denver tournament age rules. Express has put older kids like this on their team for a long time.

Express only has one (well documented here) and has a couple of 26 kids on the team too.

That’s the problem with age vs grade. An 8th grader can be younger than a 7th grader. Several teams have a player, who is age eligible for WSYL, who participate in these tournaments. Academically they are 8th graders, club lax age requirements they fit in to the 2025 bracket. That’s why nobody knows what the heck is going on. Think about this stupidity for 1 second. A kid is smart enough and socially ok, to be an 8th grade student born October of 2006. Another kid isn’t smart enough or socially behind and his parents elected to have him start late in kindergarten. He is sept of 2006. So he repeated pre school for a year. The 8th grader is younger than the 7th grader. How on this planet, is it justified that the younger kid can’t play and the older kid can. I never even understood this debate. To me it’s a no brainer. To every other sport it’s also a no brainer. Kids that are the same age, competing in a sport isn’t cheating. There is absolutely no response anyone can give that can dispute that fact.

There's no way that Rebels team brought down older players. They scored 7 goals in 3 games against highly mediocre competition and according to the Tourney app, they won 2 games total in the last 2 tournaments. If they had older players playing, they surely would have done better than that. What you're seeing with that team is exactly what you saw last year - mediocrity. And that's what you'll see in the spring - more mediocrity. But again, if the parents are happy with their son's playing time, who cares what their record is or if they go 1-2 every tournament? Your son isn't getting recruited off the team's record, he's getting recruited off his minutes spent actually on the field. As a matter of fact, we should rename this forum from BOTC to AOTF. This way, anyone who's kid is player 23 through 30 on a "juggernaut" can't comment even though he's "winning", because while his teammates who actually start may be putting the ball in the BOTC, their son isn't AOTF, so they're losing out on critical development time.

Parity at it's best! The guy above nailed it: Make sure your kid is playing and enjoying the experience. If not move on

I'd be surprised if CoachC has any 2024s on that team, maybe one? The whole team is TINY. I give them credit that they move the ball extremely well, their offensive players catch and throw better than any other team in the age group and they are well coached especially at rides and clears. The defense is mediocre at best, maybe below average even. The goalie play is nothing special. They will continue to win a ton of games because they can score at will. They are dominant now but it probably won't last much longer. The players overall are quick but very small, weak and not great athletes. Just look down the sideline and you'll see what the parents look like. There are a few other teams that have bigger, stronger, faster kids who are just better athletes who are probably playing a ton of other sports still. In the next year or two, everyone will catch up in terms of stick skills. Talk to me in high school when genetics kicks in and these other teams have linebackers with lacrosse sticks on the field. Ending up at 5'6" and 140 lbs isn't going to cut it.

What does an older kid have to do with scoring goals? I know 26's that can outscore 25's and 24's. Thats just an ignorant argument. Rebels had a few bigger kids and so did Rupoop but so what? Does that mean the dwarves on those rosters are 2030's? Please... Next argument

What does an older kid have to do with scoring goals? For starters, Rebels and others who go that route do so because they admit their talent pool at the 2025 level is lacking. So, to supplement it, they bring down older kids. Are those older kids better than some 2025s? No, not necessarily. But they are better than what the Rebels already have at the 2025 level? Yes. Otherwise, why bother? Does that directly lead to an increase in goals? No. Does it mean that the Rebels would score more goals with older add-ons than they would if they only played their 2025 talent? Yes. But there's the thing: anytime you see an organization (Rebels, Rupaul/Rushpoop/R$SH, whomever) add older kids what they're telegraphing to the world is: hey, we don't have enough talent at the 2025 level, so we're going to paper over our holes with older kids, who may or may not be better than Express' 2025 kids, but at least they're better than any options we have with our 2025 players. So when you see organizations adding older players, do yourselves a favor: run away as fast as you can and join an organization that only plays 2025 kids (like Express, for example, or some others). At least you know your organization is being honest with you and your kid's development.

If past years are any indication, the smaller kids will be pushed aside for larger faster kids over the next few years. That goes for 91 as well. From 8th-9th, many kids are going to reclassify due to the oncoming recruitment events. Holdbacks galore and stud players from other clubs as well. And they will all go to Express and 91 because they have the most pull, best connections and most attention at events. Furthermore, looking at 91 and Express 21's-24's, more and more kids are coming from out of state. Connecticut, NJ, Phily, Florida, NC, Denver, and many Westchester players are scattered among those clubs. If you think it's competitive now, you've not seen anything yet. Your coaches will tell you it will never happen, but high level college commitments are what drive sales. Chan and the mule don't have kids on these teams and priority #1 is to line their pockets. If you want to know where your son will be, look in the mirror. If you are a short dad or if you have a short wife, your kid's days are likely numbered. Unless playing only on man-down or only short stick defensive middie is ok with you, then you may be ok. Enjoy this year, because it's over after this.

"If you are a short dad or if you have a short wife, your kid's days are likely numbered" - tell that to Jose Altuve's (5'6") parents. What's that you say? Lacrosse is more physical than baseball? Ok, then tell that to Emmit Smith's (5'9") or Barry Sander's (5'8") parents. Athletes, like donkey posters, come in all shapes and sizes, and tall does not = talent. Not to mention that little detail called recessive genes, where short people have tall kids and parents with brown eyes have kids with blue. Look on the sidelines - what you see is not necessarily what you'll get.

Listen to that dweeb, it’s over after this. Who says that. It’s a game guy. It’s a sport, kids are having fun. I can pay the 8700 dollars extra for college. Thanks for your concern though. When I met my wife in college, I didnt really think much of her being 5’3. I didn’t say we shouldn’t get married, because maybe one day, if we have a boy and if he decides to play club lacrosse, he has no shot. It’s over after 12. Comical.

I agree with this, but the other poster is talking about how the dynamic of the teams have changed after 7th grade. Having an older guy myself, I can tell you that he's right. It's crazy how many kids move to Express and 91. Not saying short kids cant be good (Panell, Kavanaugh, Sankey, etc.. all played high level lax), but given the choice in 8th or 9th grade between a short athletic player and a taller, stronger athletic player, those two teams have definitely gone with the "bigger is better" attitude. Especially from the midfield spot.

The team wouldn’t miss a beat in Denver. Not to be mean, but it’s the truth. And true for a lot on the roster, that’s how deep the team is. There is about 7 or 8 that if any left would impact the team. A part from that, Express train rolls on

Express has a great team. Probably the best team. But you know what, if your number one goal is to be on the best team, congrats, you achieved your goal. These kids and families sacrifice a lot. They practice 4 sometimes 5 times a week. Most teams go twice. Express plays in like 15 tournaments in a calendar year. Most other teams maybe 8 or 9. Express with all the additional fees maybe 8,10 grand a year, most other teams maybe 4 grand. At the end of the day, they should be the best, they deserve to be the best, they are the best. Me personally, I’d rather have my son on a very good team, that costs a few grand less. I’m happy with twice a week practice. My son plays 2 other sports and has something just about every night. I’m happy playing a good amount of tournaments, but I have 3 kids who also play other sports. I like to attend their weekend events also. We also like to do non sport family vacations. Cruises, Disney, Italy,Caribbean, great memories over the years. My sons team works very well for us.

All you Express parents are really embarrassing you are living through little Johnny on a lax field and you all think that you are in the right spot . Talk to me in 4 years when Coach C stops taking your calls and you are scrambling to get into a showcase or even better talk with a college coach . Good Luck with that because i can tell you from experience you are being led down a bad path . Have fun collecting your T Shirts because in 4 years time you and your kid will not remember the T Shirts it is about the next step ....

Also having a kid on an older team, this is correct. The coach said "I can teach them lacrosse. I can't teach them size." He didn't cut the better small kids, but they don't play nearly as much as they did or sometimes at all.

Either 91 Maryland is really amazing, or CoachC brought in help for the cgampionship game.

Either 91 Maryland is really amazing, or CoachC brought in help for the cgampionship game.
Hmmmm
CoachS's team players were available


Why would he do that? The Express 2025 team would likely beat the 2024 team. And the 2024 team was long gone already having lost in pool play and not making it to playoffs.

One of the stupidest things I’ve ever heard on BOTC.

They are dominant now but it probably won't last much longer. The players overall are quick but very small, weak and not great athletes. Just look down the sideline and you'll see what the parents look like. There are a few other teams that have bigger, stronger, faster kids who are just better athletes who are probably playing a ton of other sports still. In the next year or two, everyone will catch up in terms of stick skills. Talk to me in high school when genetics kicks in and these other teams have linebackers with lacrosse sticks on the field. Ending up at 5'6" and 140 lbs isn't going to cut it.


Chuckster has an 8th grader who is also unfortunately too old for the WSYL. Small and fast, and cheating.


The team wouldn’t miss a beat in Denver. Not to be mean, but it’s the truth. And true for a lot on the roster, that’s how deep the team is. There is about 7 or 8 that if any left would impact the team. A part from that, Express train rolls on


If that’s the case, then why cheat. Send the kid and his jacked up dad back to the 2024s


Like it or not, this is how it works now. And, newsflash, hes not the only one. That kid will b going to St Anthony's and will be re-classed when he does. His anticipated graduation year is 2025. That's how it works now in grade-based lacrosse. You don't have to like it, just stop repeating yourself.

Cheaters gonna cheat

Thats a bit cocky thinking that the 2025's would beat the 2024's. Reality is we have reached the point where kids are going thru puberty. The competition that 2024 is coming up against is completely different from what 2025 encounters. Putting sone 2024s in the final game would defenitely help them win the championship. And since they struggled in the prior game against 91 MD, it seems questionable how he went 10 to 3 against tge Hawks a half an hour later.

2024 team was not long gone. They were finishing their pool games just as CoachC was finishing his playooff game against 91 MD. They would have been around for him to pull players for the championship game against the Hawks.

You 91 parents are really sinking to a new low. Just because Express destroyed a team that you lost to, now you need to try to smear them because you can’t handle that they’re that much better than you? Childish. For the record, Team 91 Maryland went 3-0 in arguably the toughest bracket down there. The truth is, they have improved greatly. They were big fast and skilled. They are just another team better than Blast right now. You are just to small to be considered elite. After losing to Hawks, once you lose to 91 Md and the mule sees that you can’t compete with bigger kids, he’s going to recruit heavily. Your team will look drastically different next year and your tiny midfielders will ride pine.

Dude, relax and take “your” shirt gracefully without going after 91LI. I thought the post was a probably from a Hawks fan. You don’t know who posted, but your angry rant of a reply shows that winning isn’t enough for you It’s probably because your kid doesn’t play. I was there and know that they didn’t use 24s because they barely used half of the 27 or 28 kids that were there from 2025s including your boy apparently. But the shirts are nice, long sleeves are great this time of year. Congratulations angry dad!

Keep teaching your kid to beat up on the weak teams and shrink when it matters, Blastard. Sounds like he’s a chip off the old block.

Lame excuses, get on the field and play ball and stop your whining, you don’t see express whining and complaining do you , nope , just good load fashioned ballin

May I suggest a simple solution, video. All your phones have it. Unfortunate to have to go to those lengths but if it will end the uncertainty, I don't see a problem with it.

This is a comical statement. The Hawks team is the smallest team around. Smaller than most 2026 teams. Ironically 3 of the 4 teams that made it to the finals are very small, LI Express, 91LI and the Hawks. Shows you don’t have to be huge to play this game. Want to see a big team, Look at Bethesda, Laxchusetts or Big 4HHH. Speed and skill is just as important as size. Many big kids rely on their size their whole life and don’t develop the skill. All 4 semi final teams showed why they belonged there and Express showed why they are #1 right now. Could change at any tournament. This is what makes it fun!

The won...Period...Stop making excuses about older kids. This weekend confirmed what we all knew. Chuckster is the best, 91 came out of hibernation to show they are better than the Igloos of the world but still not on Par with The Expresses. And then there are "The rest" Older kids, younger kids, whatever... It is a fact.

So that begs the question, who will play Express on ESPN on July 4th? Will Blast make the trip for nothing? Maybe CSH shows up and bounces them from the qualifier. Are Hawks or 91 Md going to be age eligible?

The Answer is WHO CARES! As long as it isnt my son's team and my wallet isnt getting punished I could give a hoot less! I'll be eating Nathans Hotdogs on the 4th, not debating if a kid is of age at a LI Lax tournament played in Denver. WAKE UP FOLKS!

True, But ESPN will be on your TV at 6pm on July 4th. Because your son and his friends will be watching and you might sneak a peak. My guess is it will be Express vs BBL.

My son will be in a pool, playing with his friends. The last thing on his mind will be "I wonder if Express won?" I can promise you he will be more concerned about what flavors the ice cream man will be serving that day. The only way he will know the results is when he hears the obsessed parents at the next practice talking about it. And if I sneak a peek at that meaningless propaganda on 4th of July weekend, rather than hanging out with my son, I may as well sit in my garage with the car running and take deep breaths as I would have failed miserably in life smile But for the purposes of this board I'd still take Express and give the points.

Brotherly Love beat 91 MD on Sunday. They built a team for the WSYL, it would be nice to see an MD or PA team play Express in the finals.

Really??!?! To this poster......... If you tried out for 91 this year, do you think they would have taken you? Watch yourself before you are called out. This isn’t how it works everywhere, and you know it.

The person on Brotherly Love is confused. They are mixing up 91 MD with 3D MD.
Brotherly Live was at the Warrior Famous Autumn Classic tournament run by Aloha. It was in Maryland.
Not the same level of competition as Deleware. They ended up against Sweetlax in championship and beat Sweetlax. (Sweetlax didnt even make it to playoffs in Deleware).

Wait! Is that the soubd of Express whining and complaining?? I thought Express doesnt do that?

I quote:
"2025 CoachC spanked the hawks 10-3 while 91 dads are still driving home saying in the car ride home “ did you see the size of those kids on the hawks , They’re older they’re bigger “ lol. Lame excuses, get on the field and play ball and stop your whining, you don’t see express whining and complaining do you , nope , just good load fashioned ballin"

Hmmm. Sounds like its Express doing the whining and complaining about other teams being "older and bigger".
Too funny. What a fool.

MM’s kid was on 24s and is now on 25s along with another boy on the team, but they had been playing up for the last few years. So, his son is a legit 25 and they will have their entire team for the World Series event.

MM’s kid has ABSOLUTELY NOT been playing up the last few years! He is a TRUE 2024! And still is! Has been since DAY ONE! NEVER has played up. Never!

Read the kids posts donkey! He is a 2024 who loves playing down on the 2025 team. His posts are NONSTOP.

TEAM 91 Maryland. The true cheater team of 2025.

Oh really?????????

How many true 2024 players does Team 91 Maryland use?

Because MM’s kid loves to post on social media how he plays on the 2025 team. Posts come ... ALL THE TIME!

MM’s kid is on the 2024 Team 91 Maryland team!

Ask any kid you know to confirm this.

Team 91 Maryland are cheating DB’s to the core!



MM’s kid was on 24s and is now on 25s along with another boy on the team, but they had been playing up for the last few years. So, his son is a legit 25 and they will have their entire team for the World Series event.


Dont bother explaining to the Express parents. They love to make excuses. The say "Stop making excuses about older kids." And sure enough that exactly what they do. Pot calling the kettle black.
They dont like to face the facts that there are teams out there that can compete with them. They need to get used to it.

My boy plays on a 2024 team and has been playing Team 91 and MM and MM’s kid since its inception. So when you say that MM’s kid has been playing up with the 2024’s the past couple of years, you are lying. I know the kid and MM. the kid is and always has been a 2024 on the team that MM coaches. You need to come up with some better lies that aren’t so easily verifiable. MM and his Team 91 Maryland would sell his mother for a new t-shirt. Real slimy guy and organization. As bad as it gets in youth lacrosse and that’s saying a lot.

MM’s kid has ABSOLUTELY NOT been playing up the last few years! He is a TRUE 2024! And still is! Has been since DAY ONE! NEVER has played up. Never!

Read the kids posts donkey! He is a 2024 who loves playing down on the 2025 team. His posts are NONSTOP.

TEAM 91 Maryland. The true cheater team of 2025.





For starters, why is a grown Meanyman following a 12/13 year old on social media? That’s just creepy. Secondly, quit hating on a kid who was willing/able to play up for eventually coming back down to his true grade. Just applaud him and move on....and don’t be a pedophile.

Yes, you are correct that his son has been on the 2024 team since inception, until last year. 91 MD hasn’t been around as long as many of the other clubs, so I used the phrase “a few years”.

No reason to lie and you can verify that he is on the 25 team and on age, when they compete in the World Series events. Saying your 24 son has played against him for years, doesn’t discredit the fact that he was playing up or prove that he is a holdback.

And per your precious post, the fact that you follow a 7th graders social media is concerning on many levels.

You people are just insane with this. If you only knew. My nephew was on a good club team, 2 time all county in high school. Played at a very good D1 school. My sister and brother in-law saved about 40 thousand in college tuition over 4 years, not bad. He is hoping next year to be hired as a full time teacher and assistant lax coach. Also not bad. That’s the end of it people. This isn’t the NFL, this isn’t baseball, basketball. To see people go crazy over this, spend an absurd amount of money, bad mouth each other, insult the other teams, over something where there isn’t a lacrosse living at the end of the road, makes no sense to me.

They have to play 2024 from now on. They brought on 2024's after last weekends loss. WSYL eligible, but still 2024's. At least they're doing the right thing and playing in the correct bracket. It's the weakest 2024 bracket, but they wont be cheating. Lets see if they continue that all season. I suspect not.

They have '24s on the team now. But they're probably just playing up so they have a built in excuse in case they lose. The last time they tried playing up I thought those tiny kids were going get seriously hurt.

You make no sense to me.

What does making a living from a sport have to do with anything?? That’s completely inconsequential in youth sports.

You really think the end game for all things is based on only dollars? Friend, you have ALOT to learn in this life.

People play this game because they LOVE it, no strings attached. Players and fans are ibsessed with it. The sport is no less competitive or less serious because one can’t make a living from it. One has nothing to do with the other.

Wake up!

The point that was trying to be made was how insane a lot of parents get over this. Parents bad mouthing each other, bad mouthing other teams. This team is cheating, that team is cheating. He is a holdback, that guy is a double holdback. It goes on and on. Insanity, the money being spent is crazy as well. To do this over a 10 year youth lacrosse span, makes no sense. Especially being that there is no upside at the end of this. Kids play the game because they love it. I was referring to the crazy parents, not the kids or lacrosse fans.

Grade is the Problem Jackalope! You can be in any grade at any age which is the entire issue. Complain about AGE not GRADE.
Hear people complaining about 8th graders yet 7th graders are older !
World Series does it right and has the entire 2025 landscape trying to play along.
Good luck this weekend sounds like you are going to need it.

He will laugh at you! Bro. You don’t get it. These organizations are run by the clubs. The clubs are the ones behind the cheating because it’s all about the bottom line. The business of youth lacrosse is as corrupt as it gets. It’s all about big egos and big bucks for the owners. The bigger the person bag the bigger the profits. There is no accountability to any one or anything. Real trash.

Wow. 91 showing its integrity once again. That organization is definitely an anomaly in this dreadful business. Last year, the 2024 team went with one team all year long, whether WSYL or NLF or any other tournament, without a single holdback or guest player. I highly doubt there is any elite team anywhere that can make that claim. Most elite teams I know use 95% holdbacks, supplemented by players from same organization, but a grade older. In a very trashy business, Team 91 appears to be standing tall as the only organization with integrity and character. Kudos to them.

Funniest post ever - Kudos to 91 for being the only organization with integrity and character. This team you’re raving about left a tournament after losing a game on Saturday and PACK’d up with two games left to play against out-of-town teams. Integrity and character? Their 2 most promoted players: 1, a Coach’s son, 2022, turned 16 July before his Sophomore year, and the other, the #1 recruit in the country is fast approaching middle age - no one ever says how old he is. Let’s relax with the standing Tall with Integrity and Character talk - just work on getting your kid better.

Oh yeah that one is laughable. I remember when he playing on Crush and JS and mom used to walk around bragging about how he was playing up two years. Except, he wasn’t. He is a hold back. Put a big althletic defender on him and you get what happened at the county championship - no goals. I was at that game, he got one assist. When the official tally came out in Newsday he had 4 assists in the game. Not corrupt? Laughable. Don’t believe me? There is video of that game. One actual assist and no goals but 4 assists recorded. It’s a shame because the boy is good but the attempts to elevate him even more to make Dad look good ruin it and make him a joke. He would have had four assists if the long pole didn’t beat him senseless every time he got the ball so lets just make it 4 😂 Okay Joe.

He's got two WSYL wins and a couple of DII championships. Beyond that, he's not a winning coach but he sure makes it LOOK like he is. Now cut the check!

Take a look at Wolfpack this year. Brought in 4 bigger older holdbacks. Look at Bandits. I think there are maybe 5 kids left from WSYL 2 years ago. Now that team stacked with holdbacks from 4 different states. Blast will be the same next year, except they are not now, nor have they ever been, in the same class as WP and Bandits.

For starters, why is a grown Meanyman following a 12/13 year old on social media? That’s just creepy. Secondly, quit hating on a kid who was willing/able to play up for eventually coming back down to his true grade. Just applaud him and move on....and don’t be a pedophile.

Oh really?????????

How many true 2024 players does Team 91 Maryland use?

Because MM’s kid loves to post on social media how he plays on the 2025 team. Posts come ... ALL THE TIME!

MM’s kid is on the 2024 Team 91 Maryland team!

Ask any kid you know to confirm this.

Team 91 Maryland are cheating DB’s to the core!



MM’s kid was on 24s and is now on 25s along with another boy on the team, but they had been playing up for the last few years. So, his son is a legit 25 and they will have their entire team for the World Series event.


YOU ARE A LIEING SACK OF LaxinItUp!!

MM’s kid has ABSOLUTELY NOT been playing up the last few years! He is a TRUE 2024! And still is! Has been since DAY ONE! NEVER has played up. Never!

My boy plays on a 2024 team and has been playing Team 91 and MM and MM’s kid since its inception. So when you say that MM’s kid has been playing up with the 2024’s the past couple of years, you are lying. I know the kid and MM. the kid is and always has been a 2024 on the team that MM coaches. You need to come up with some better lies that aren’t so easily verifiable. MM and his Team 91 Maryland would sell his mother for a new t-shirt. Real slimy guy and organization. As bad as it gets in youth lacrosse and that’s saying a lot.





Yes, you are correct that his son has been on the 2024 team since inception, until last year. 91 MD hasn’t been around as long as many of the other clubs, so I used the phrase “a few years”.

No reason to lie and you can verify that he is on the 25 team and on age, when they compete in the World Series events. Saying your 24 son has played against him for years, doesn’t discredit the fact that he was playing up or prove that he is a holdback.

And per your precious post, the fact that you follow a 7th graders social media is concerning on many levels.


donkey! Playing “up” in Maryland doesn’t exist. If by playing “up” you mean he is playing on age, then I understand the Maryland cheater logic. But in any other state, playing up means playing a grade higher than the grade he is in. Playing in the grade he is in, is called playing on age. Very confusing for a Maryland holdback parent I’m sure. And for the record, BS-boy, my kid sees the 2024 boys posts, which he shows to me. He’s annoyed, because the kid posts non-stop about playing down with 2025’s. But don’t believe me, ask your kid. I’m sure MM’s 2024 kid is on his feed too. Maryland cheater trash.

Wow. Love anonymous sites... it’s story time!

How about we fact check that post:

1. 91 is a founding member of the NLF. The NLF does not allow teams to leave early from tournaments, as the result of being in a lost bracket. 91 isn’t allowed to break their own rule.

2. There is no coaches son that starts on WP and haven’t for several years. Watch WSYL championship game on YouTube to confirm.

3. No coaches sons are 2022’s or holdbacks for that matter. Watch the WSYL on YouTube to confirm they were there, which confirms they are not holdbacks or 2022’s.

4. The “#1 recruit in the country”... no clue who you are referring to, but there are no holdbacks on WP. Again, watch WSYL and confirm whatever player that you are referring to was there which confirms no holdbacks at all on the team which means no 16 year olds.

Now, wasn’t that fun and informative? All of your unverifiable BS was proven incorrect and completely verifiable to all that want to confirm it.

Back to the point. Standing tall (and alone) with integrity and character... Team 91 Long Island.

Wow. Congrats. densest post of the day. You out did yourself on that one! I’m no fan of 91 but they are the most dominant club in the country right now. Largest and most successful. #1 ranked club nationally. Irrelevant? Bro, you are irrelevant with a post like that. Next time, do your homework!

Sounds pretty impressive to me. What are your credentials/accolades?


Top D1 boys head coaches make 200K. Add his 91 checks to that, I don’t see him making anywhere near 500k. Maybe 300, all in? Still nothing to sneeze at though.

They have to play 2024 from now on. They brought on 2024's after last weekends loss. WSYL eligible, but still 2024's. At least they're doing the right thing and playing in the correct bracket. It's the weakest 2024 bracket, but they wont be cheating. Lets see if they continue that all season. I suspect not.

Take a look at Wolfpack this year. Brought in 4 bigger older holdbacks. Look at Bandits. I think there are maybe 5 kids left from WSYL 2 years ago. Now that team stacked with holdbacks from 4 different states. Blast will be the same next year, except they are not now, nor have they ever been, in the same class as WP and Bandits.

FACT CHECK:

Wolfpack has two new starters this year. A pole and a midi, both from igloo. Rest of starters are same all-on-age players from last year that played in WSYL.

Ok. Feel free to continue with you 100% genuine BS. Maybe someone else can fact check the rest of your made up garbage.

Dude you need to do your research before you write. You sound like a fool.

The Wolfpack did bail on there games when they lost against eclipse and had no chance at the championship.
It was the NLF National Club Championship in Massachusetts July 19-21 2019.
They bailed on their Saturday July 20 1:40pm game against NXT and their Sunday July 21 8am game against the Baltimore Crabs.
You need to go read last years 2024 thread. Its all over that.
They are now called by everyone Wolfpackupngo.
Really bad sportsmanship. Every other team was there and stayed. They were the only ones who bailed. Total stunads.

Hey dingus I know this is clearly your oldest sons team but try to keep up. He’s referring to Tje crush/bandits coach’s son who is a holdback in smash and the ex crush now blaze ST As recruit who is at least a 1 year holdback.

Stony Brook is a state school and salaries are published. Last I looked, in 2015 they were paying him $204k. Add in the Lizards GM job, coaching 3 youth teams, profit sharing from 91, all the cash he fleeces from the 3 youth teams on box training, extra tournaments and “indoor space for practice” then add in the girls clinics he has every week as SB coach plus the girls tournaments and you’ll get to anywhere between $400-$500k. A good chunk of it is cash which is worth around 30% more since it’s tax free.

This can’t be an adult posting this response:

1. 91 is a founding member of the NLF. The NLF does not allow teams to leave early from tournaments, as the result of being in a lost bracket. 91 isn’t allowed to break their own rule.

WRONG - check the results of the 2024 bracket for the NLF Championship in Mass July, 19-21, 2019. Pretty classless move. That’s a tremendous display of poor character: leaving a tournament b/c you lose a game.

2. There is no coaches son that starts on WP and haven’t for several years. Watch WSYL championship game on YouTube to confirm.

This is true b/c the Pack Mommies complained and Mr. 91 himself needed to step up and save their sideline last year.

3. No coaches sons are 2022’s or holdbacks for that matter. Watch the WSYL on YouTube to confirm they were there, which confirms they are not holdbacks or 2022’s.

You made a point that the whole organization “Stands Tall with Integrity and Character”. I believe the original poster was pointing out the obvious examples where you are mistaken. It seems like you only care about 1 team though, which limits your youth lacrosse understanding..

4. The “#1 recruit in the country”... no clue who you are referring to, but there are no holdbacks on WP. Again, watch WSYL and confirm whatever player that you are referring to was there which confirms no holdbacks at all on the team which means no 16 year olds.

Again, 91 has other teams at other ages, maybe spend some time doing research and you’ll not come off as such a 91 FANBOY.

Now, wasn’t that fun and informative? All of your unverifiable BS was proven incorrect and completely verifiable to all that want to confirm it.

The only unverifiable BS here is your blind love for all things 91.

Back to the point. Standing tall (and alone) with integrity and character... Team 91 Long Island. [/quote]

WOW. Step away from the keyboard Mr. 91 TOPFAN.

Wow. You preach about fact checking?? Give it a try. Wolfpack has left 2 tournaments in the last year that I know of. They don’t like playing holdback teams and that’s why they picked up 3 this year. Not sure who the 4th is that the other poster mentioned, but it’s possible. Also, no one was talking about 22’s and #1 recruit and referencing WP. They were referring to a player on Smash. Read and research before you try to seem intelligent.

Thank you for clarifying that Blast is not in the same class with the previous years teams. They never have been. You would never see Bandits, Smash, Blaze, Crush, Ambush, Warriors, or Orange losing to town teams. 1st or 2nd teams, none of them have. Blast has lost to several, including one last year! That is laughable!

I care about my son getting better, my son enjoying the game. That’s it. I can not believe how many grown adults care about the teams performance. It’s such a meaningless thing. How do people not grasp this. It means nothing. Do you people hear well. Yes it’s nice and fun to cheer for them to win, but it means nothing. How my kid performs, means a lot to me. Not if the team won 5 to 4, or lost 8 to 6. If his team goes 35 and 10 or 27 and 18 or 44 and 1. What does that mean, my sons youth team is better than your sons youth team.That doesn’t excite me much. Should I go to work and tell my friends how great my sons youth team is. Is that what this is about. Adults bragging to their friends how good their sons 12 year old lacrosse team is.

If a last is u13 for Denver. Good for them. You should go out there with the best team possible based on the rules. Not worry that somebody will get their feeling hurt, go back to PAL for hugs.. Sweet Lax and Prime Time are likely doing it. And any team that played Express this fall should do it or stay home and save the money. I don’t want to hear about the experience, this is about winning from the club directors on down.

Wow that's amazing , team 91 2025 playing up into the 2024 bracket when they can't even handle the teams in the 2025 bracket . Typical 91 garbage , let's play them up into a weak class against weak competition so we can say that we played up but instead they are just avoiding good teams in 2025 so they're not embarrassed at their own tournament. Pathetic. Go look at the teams they're playing in the 2024 bracket lol. What a sad and pathetic club,, avoiding good competition and playing up into a horrible bracket to say " we play up a year " hahahaha.

Well ofcourse we agree with your points. But you also have to understand the unintended purpose of this forum. It's entertaining to argue and debate with others about innocuous things about the sport with those who are in the same situation, in a harmless way. We all have youth lax players that we get joy (or aggravation) from watching them play this great sport. You shouldn't take this forum that seriously and you should mix it up a little. Try it.

PS.. you don't see the same parents here duking it out on lax fields during tournaments. My experience has mostly been positive when meeting parents on opposing teams. Football games on the other hand? that's a separate topic.

If I was a club director, I would be finding the best age eligible I could. Because no team on Long Island, a part from two clubs shouldn’t even consider Denver. I am not anti Denver, I like the tourney and the concept. Anything age based I would always support. However, the cost can’t be ignored, and if you’re going, your club should bring a team that has a chance to win. Sorry if young 2024s would push other kids off a roster, but this tourney is about winning, period.

I agree for the most part of what you said. The only part I don’t agree with, is clubs should pick up kids and bring a team that can win. To me that’s not a team. The team camaraderie that is built over the entire year is what makes it a team. Not picking 5 ringers putting on a temporary club jersey for 4 days. Nobody on the team knows those kids or parents, winning like that means nothing. Go with your team and give it your best or have the club choose not to go. That’s what I would do if I were in charge.

What good competition are they avoiding? You have no idea what any of those 24 teams will look like tomorrow, But you do know there is no reason to play any of those 2025 teams. Bash all you want, but they are using a 2024 who will be on their WS team so they are doing what they should By playing 2024. They surely do not deserve a medal, but come on, you know better.

I hear you and that is a valid point. But it’s the grade vs age mix which causes the problem. And clubs won’t go age based. The former director of PAL tried to get PAL to go age when he ran Suffolk PAL and they.... turned it down. If PAL went age the rest would fall in line over time. But PAL is run by serve servers obviously in my opinion. If they really wanted to make a difference they would go age based. That’s why PAL is a waste of time they do nothing to help or promote the game. And the joke is they subscribe to US lacrosse which supports age. Town teams should just play together in tourneys and scrap PAL, as it has little value anymore.

They are avoiding the regulators becasue they lost to CSH town team last year and they know that the regulators are an even better version of that CSH team being that they are primarily CSH kids with some additional kids from tryouts . Very plain and simple.to see the 91 way. Avoid, avoid , beat weak teams and call ourselves champs . Sad

The Regulators didn't have a great Fall season, they actually lost more games than they won. Heard some of the players were looking elsewhere. I would be surprised if the team made it through the winter.

Not a 91 parent. But clearly you have not read this thread at all.plenty of 2025 teams have 2024s on their team this year who meet the WSYL guidelines. And they have all used these players ib tournaments this fall in the 2025 bracket. They didnt even pmay up into the 2024 bracket. Look at R$sh and Rebels for example.

Honestly there were not many good teams in this tournament for 2024 except Legact Taz and 91 Tristate Select. And each of those were in seperate pools from each other. What I dont understand is why there was no bracket game where winners of the pools played each other? What is the deal with that?

Exactly my point . They could have gone into the 2025 bracket and at least played eclipse and regulators . Nope , played in 2024 and still didn't have the best two teams in 2024. Why? Becasue it's intentional , they can do what they want because they own the tournament. So let's okay weak teams and win it all to say " we played up Into 2024 and won "what a joke

Makes no sense but yet it really does make sense because it’s the kind of thing that 91 does all the time . Weak tournaments and set them up against the weaker teams , then post stuff all over the place saying that they never lost a game . Lol what a joke

Bro. Calm down with the conspiracy theories. It’s real simple. 91 is using their WSYL team which has a 2024 player. So they are doing the right thing (gasp) and playing in the 24 bracket. There aren’t many decent 24 teams in the tourney because they are all in the NLF tourney which is Sunday. That’s it. The boring facts. No drama, except for when the botc keyboard jockey queens have nothing better to do. Hey, how about doing something productive with your time, like finding a job. Heard BK was looking for fry cooks.

Not sure who your referring to but I'm not a regulators dad. But if you were to look at the brackets and have half of a brain you could plainly see that 91 avoided the only 2 2024 respectable teams . Yes the regulators lost one game but it was to eclipse which is a great team . Who exactly did team 91 play? 3 horrible teams . So shut your mouth, you make no sense. You're the only one dense enough to keep drinking the 91 Kool aid . Nothing but trash with a big mouth .

I haven’t beaten anyone. 91 2025 has definite beaten Eclipse and every other team in 2025 playing yesterday that they have faced in the past 12 months. They’ve also beaten everyone that was in DE last week at one point over the last year including HHH, Laxachussets, Primetime, Hawks, 91 MD and Express. That’s beating what most would call the best of the best. Semi finals at NLF in August and NALF this fall. Some terribly embarrassing losses, yup, but don’t be such a hater Regulator Dad. I know 91 posts their team schedules on the web pages on a team by team basis. So you can make your coaches line you up for a game at one of those events. Then the boys can put up or shut up.

We know from the TM that Roar beat them at Laxfest so good on them, but they are one of the bad losses. Another bad one was Madlax in the semi at NLF so they missed another shot at the Chuck. Let’s be honest, 91 wasn't ducking the regulators, who just lost to Force and Primetime at Tristar. In past years, the Rush/Ducks Dads were itching to give 91 a real try. It didn’t work out so well for them. Regulator should keep an eye out for the schedule release on the 91 Site. Or you can give the WSYL qualifiers a go. There will be a nice line up including 91. Heck, just tell the regulators coaches you want your boys to jump over 91 and take a run at Express if your fired up.

For the 91 dad.....if your team is so good and beat Express and the Hawks why are they ranked 3rd (which by the way in my opinion is way too high for your team) 91 probably has a back channel for the rankings too, did dynamic buy us lacrosse as well hahahaha

I wouldn’t waste your energy worrying about 91.They’ll win tourneys and they may lose a few, so what. They are definitely a top tier team, whether they lost to a team they shouldn’t have or not.

Changing the topic.
Lets talk box lacrosse.
Was looking at Island box. But was interested in tournament level, not just training.
But dont understand how your getting anything for $650 plus the $50 tryout fee.
You get the same six 1 hour practices as the $250 training program and one local tournament run by them. Then says more tournaments "could" be added "alacarte".
So all I get for paying another $450- is a local tournament.

Seems like a ripoff.

Anyone know of any better programs which actually do tournaments outside of Long Island as well??

Are you serious, travel outside LI for box lacrosse? Why don't you take your son skiing or to a movie instead of shoving lax down his throat. Clown.

US Club Lax rankings are compiled out of NJ by an individual affiliated w/ 91 New Jersey. This has been widely discussed on these boards. Obviously, there is a 91 bias in all these rankings. It’s all based on a flawed strength of schedule algorithm which allows a crappy team to get destroyed by Top teams and still jump in the rankings b/c of their opponent’s higher ranking. There are no adjustments for blowout losses to those teams. Basically, if you play a higher ranked team, you’ll advance in the rankings.

Not sure he has a 91 affiliation, he coaches a local Jersey Shore team that is a feeder program for a high school team. Neither 91 or LE attend the US Club Lax tournaments.

Not to stick up for the guy but he is doing the best he can. He is giving us lax losers something to complain about in Nov. If you don't like it, create your own!

No reason to leave LI but stay away from Island Box unless you want to deal with the bait and switch with a director/coach that you'll never see, a clueless PAL coach calling the shots for his kid to be the center of attention and being lied to about everything.
Go take a look at NOTB instead...much better quality of training and tournament play

Someone else I know told me they had the same experience with Island Box. Pretty much what you described. Which makes me even more wary of Island Box when I consider that and see an inflated price along with that.
But I also tried NOTB and wasnt impressed at the level of instruction there. And thought tournament was really disorganized.
Have seen youth box tournaments outside Long Island and they are night and day to what I saw here.
Are there any other options?

Chang’s own tournament, in OT. I know it happens to the best.
And Express lost to Sweetlax at Naptown too. Hey, they are 12 (mostly).

IBL was a ripoff. The regular instructors played lacrosse but none the of them ipayed Box Lacrosse. They did have tournaments ala carte but the teams were pre picked and many of the boys on the tournament teams were not involved in the training sessions where they were supposedly evaluating the field players for the teams.

For box on LI its either IBL or NOTB. Regarding the $650 price tag at IBL for league play, that is because it includes season tickets to the Riptide. In order to enter in the Riptide youth box league, you have to buy the tickets. They would sell on their own for about $500. IBL is tacking on $150 which seems pretty reasonable. The Riptide youth league has their games at Nassau Collesium which is pretty cool assuming it gets off the ground.

IBL had an issue where the director got a DWI or similar and wasn't able to travel to NY. Not exactly a bait and switch but the result was the same, no legit box coach. It remains to be seen whether he'll be there this year. If he is, he's excellent. Overall, still decent quality training without him and they do go to real box tournaments which is great. Also, the number of boys in their practices is manageable numbers. The facility isn't great. IBL only has one real rink when they can get it and one sort of practice rink that really isn't good. Their in house tournament is good and has certified box officials.

NOTB training is very good overall. They have real Canadians who know the game inside and out - and more than one of them. They also have a lot more kids, therefore fewer reps. Their facility is much nicer and you have two full-size rinks. NOTBs in house tournament is not as good, I didn't notice the chaos the other poster mentioned, but the officials are really not box officials and no shot clock which is annoying. NOTB does not go to other tournaments, it is strictly a clinic and then one inhouse tournament.

To sum it all up: if you're looking for your son to play box tournaments and he already has some background in it, IBL is probably better with the caveat that you do have to make the team to actually play in tournaments. If you're looking for your son to learn box skills and dont care about tournaments then NOTB is probably better.

Hope that helps.

Yup been that way since the program started in 2018. CoachL you wont see. He lives in Colorado. His focus is his 6 star lacrosse club program there. He is just using his name to make money through IBL. Its ridiculoys that he is listed as coach on the website.

$500 for a season ticket is assuming Island Box is going to get you the most expensive season tickets. I got a hunch that the 1 season ticket you're getting for being in the Riptide Box league (which then you'll have to go and buy another season ticket to with your son) will be the cheaper season ticket package, which is $180
