Anyone know whats gone on with tryouts so far ( elevate, icon liberty, empire...)?
Heard some dissension at YG has lead to some defections. My daughter says some teams have reshuffled the deck. Trying to get a bead on tryouts that are left.

YJ is then the last big team left whose tryouts aren’t over. Legacy, TG, Elevate, Liberty, Empire are all done? And with YJ two top teams merging, all that’s left is a B spot there... so table is pretty much set for fall season... any surprises. Heard YJ players were at a lot of tryouts.

YJ in this age group is a toxic mess. It’s bound to get worse. Top girl is out, other top girl coming in. Will be a 2 girl show, with the rest scratching.

Well, no one has left yet because tryouts have yet to happen. So yeah, but those not selected to the new AA team already know what’s coming and have been at other tryouts. Frankly, this is good for everyone. YJ gets an instant “team to beat”, girls who aren’t top 20 move onto programs where they will be instantly featured and get to prove that they deserved better. Frankly, I wish other programs that play this game of two top teams would just stop, waters down the talent on Long Island and then we have to hear garbage from Maryland teams as to where the better teams reside. CR gets it, she is taking a $ hit but gets a marquee team at an age where exposure is everything.

Thorn is a good coach stop stirring up nonsense. Thorn will take the top 4 girls off Colbert team. The rest will go to the b team. Yj will have a good A team mediocre b team and c and d money makers for the club.

4 of the YJ Colbert players have officially accepted the spot on the Liberty 2023 team, along with a girl from top guns. Liberty might be a team to look out for this year with the gain with of a new, very strong defensive unit.

not sure if this is the top girl he is talking about but I know of 4 maybe 5 top girls leaving YJ Colbert and Thorn to join Liberty Black.

I'm not stirring the pot. Thorn is terrible. They play terrible teams in protected brackets. The YJ brand always attracts talent and she's never been able to do anything with it. The team has done horribly every year since 2nd grade and rarely even win in the easy brackets they are entered in. I stand by my statement, Thorn is terrible.

The only reason people stay on the team is because they believe CR will help their daughter get recruited. I hope they are right. Because they sure aren't learning how to play lacrosse.

The Thorn team has already been decided. They will take 10 kids from Colbert team cut 10 from Thorn and move on with one A team and the B team will get overhauled in the process. The rest of the kids will be put on the C team they can call it Aa,A &B but everyone knows it will be an A,B,C .
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2023-9th Grade Fall 2019/Summer 2020 - 08/11/19 07:13 PM
Can’t understand the attraction of playing for B, C or D for YJ. How do you camouflage the idea your kid didn’t make the top team when coaches come to call ( if that is you goal...). As far as learning to play to a higher level, we’ll that would be great if teaching occurred. From what I heard so far here and elsewhere, not a lot of high level instruction goes on. Coach K over at elevate of DG at Liberty can place your kid just as well for college AND the instruction is top notch. Sooo, again, what’s the draw unless you go to Northport for HS?
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2023-9th Grade Fall 2019/Summer 2020 - 08/11/19 07:45 PM
See, this is what I heard was in the works. So, really what is the point of my daughter showing up at that tryout?
Except to pad CR's pocket. The A team is already decided, so what is the draw? If your kid is going to play at NP HS the answer is obvious, otherwise...? As far as recruitment if that is your endgame, Coach K at Elevate or DG at Liberty can do just a much AND you will be taught to play the game. We blew it, should have showed up at those tryouts or TG. Empire and Legacy are whats left...Icon had like 45 girls at tryout, new for them, so I'm thinking girls who are designated for assignment at YJ have been seeking a home...should be interesting fall and spring...but all academic if YJ can get their stuff together

YJ will place more girls than any other club! Their entire A, B and most of C. This is not true for other clubs, especially elevate, No one likes the director over there. If you are a YJ A or B stay! Anything below you should try to get on another A team. My 2019 played for a different club and got very little help, while her YJ friends had plenty.

No way does Thorn drop 10 girls and add 10 Colbert girls. It just won't happen. Prediction is 4 girls from Colbert only 2 get meaningful minutes

In fairness to those who are going to be left hanging after YJ tryouts, this should have been revealed to the marginal players earlier so they could hook on elsewhere. The almighty dollar wins out again over what is right and fair.

The teams are already decided and if you haven’t heard your a or b then you are designated. To the other 2 teams. Tryouts means absolutely nothing. Yes they did drop a significant number of girls.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2023-9th Grade Fall 2019/Summer 2020 - 08/14/19 01:23 PM
So you have confirmed what I suspected, YJ tryouts is going to be a sham. Don’t bother if you haven’t already played for either of the top two teams and spend your money elsewhere... anyone know anything about this legecy516 thing... who is coaching , where they will practice or even where tryout is, and how much? Can’t believe how much the deck has been shuffled in this age group, like it’s going to be all new teams except for legacy. YJ, Elevate, Empire, Liberty, Icon all fresh faces. Glad my daughter got to Icon tryout, tons of girls And I know some of those teams shouldn’t be mentioned with others but who knows now.

This site has a decent list of tournaments in the fall. The National Lax Festival in late October usually gets a good draw.

At this age, everyone is clambering to get on the top team at the top club which provides sustainability for these travel programs. However, recruiting is an individual effort - How does your daughter's lax resume look? Has she participated in the NLC or Brine AA, or did she just go to Nationals b/c that's where her team went? Coaches look at individual players and what they do to differentiate themselves, individually, only helps in the long run. UA AA, UA 150, All-League, All-County - all of these accomplishments can be added to a resume to make your daughter stand out, not just that she played for a team that attended Nationals or was an all-star at a camp (yawn). Also, playing meaningful minutes on Varsity this year should be her top priority, not which YJ team she is on.

It will be a very interesting YJ tryout coming up as the long anticipated merge happens. The other travel clubs TG, Legacy, Elevate, Liberty will be watching anxiously hoping disgruntled players that didn't make the A team come to them looking for a new team. The other clubs didn't draw difference making players to their clubs.

That's true. But doesn't he coach in the conference with about 3 teams and if you beat powerhouse Carle Place you go to states?

Nobody will be waiting for pickups ...perhaps a few girls will have spots offered that, that's it...TG, Legacy, Liberty and Elevate not waiting with baited breathe for the "golden 10"... these girls were alerted to the merger and knew where they stood, many have already accepted positions on the above teams and were at all of these tryouts...deals are done...If you got caught watching, can't blame CR, this merger was announced before the Elevate tryout. Whether these girls are difference makers elsewhere is yet to be seen, but good for them to be topical

OMG Really!? Stop with your nonsense No one is anxiously waiting since all of the organizations team rosters are already set. As for your comment that the other clubs didn't Draw difference makers is another joke. What do you do go to every teams tryout and then get handed a secret roster from every organization detailing which players are new this year and what team they came from?? Just stop your B.S. it’s really pathetic

Not that hard to figure out. YJ only has two exceptional players (one from the igloo team, other MC). The rest are interchangeable. They are Staying. TG has 5 exceptional players who are staying. Those are the facts.

OMG Really!? Stop with your nonsense No one is anxiously waiting since all of the organizations team rosters are already set. As for your comment that the other clubs didn't Draw difference makers is another joke. What do you do go to every teams tryout and then get handed a secret roster from every organization detailing which players are new this year and what team they came from?? Just stop your B.S. it’s really pathetic


Not that hard to figure out. YJ only has two exceptional players (one from the igloo team, other MC). The rest are interchangeable. They are Staying. TG has 5 exceptional players who are staying. Those are the facts.


those interchangeable players that will stay on the AA team are F & F now of 2 coaches. The other girls will be dropped...and they are just as good as the girls who stay. Its all who you know in this age bracket. truth

If Thorn is coaching it will still be a dumpster fire. Truth.

Thorn is a good coach stop stirring up nonsense. Thorn will take the top 4 girls off Colbert team. The rest will go to the b team. Yj will have a good A team mediocre b team and c and d money makers for the club.



if i was the Igloo team I would head for the hills. they will get minimal playing time. thorn is a good coach for the 10 that play...there will be many girls on the bench this year. good luck

I don’t think you can say Thorn is a good coach based on the performance of her team this year...an embarrassment to the brand. That said YJ will be better next year when their best player comes back from injuries. We’ll have to see how the Chemistry pans out wit the new girls. Could be rough as coaches daughters are just ok players.

agree but this age YJ has been a mess .. they let go of a lot of talent and is why TG in this age is so good. a lot are all former YJ players it will wind up a similar outcome next year as well lots of girls will leave again because they won't get any time on the field besides the coaches daughter

TG not immune to kids trying to find a better situation. They had a few defections as well for various reasons. All teams had movement. Elevate having another supplemental tryout. Why? Because kids continue to move and they want to capture talent ( and money). Liberty had an overhaul with girls moving, all teams doit at this age.Things will settle down and intensify as HS play becomes more important. Less team switching going forward. Concentrate on your girls happiness parents, if they are unhappy on a team, no reason to stick around regardless of who pulls the strings come recruitment time, they will quit before then.

I agree with the player happiness. Our daughter shifted teams in the summer of 9th grade as she was extremely unhappy with her current team. She couldn't have made a better decision as her new teammates worked harder to get better and everybody shared the ball.

The difference is the girls who left TG never played, and left for lower level clubs. the girls who left YJ were unhappy with the coaching and did not leave for lack of playing time. Big difference there. I agree that the most important thing is being happy on your team.

The reason girls switched teams is arbitrary. More playing time, crappy coaching, better recruitment ops, conflicts, etc... it doesn’t really matter except to the individual families. Point is all this movement creates opportunity. Fresh starts, fresh attitude to start HS years with. No more “baby ball”, Organizations where pandered to player/coach combos make decisions for everyone will be exposed and teams will suffer. Can’t hide marginal daughter player and force feed minutes that are unwarranted. Personal, can’t wait. Some teams will be stronger, others weaker. all will be motivated to show “ baby ball” is behind them and that they belong regardless of where they are. Again, can’t wait. There will be surprises.

Not really arbitrary. When your best girls are leaving because the coaches are favoring their sub par daughters, this is a big problem. Welcome to YJ2023

Because we don't need to. Our coaches coach and our girls have gotten better every year. Keep drinking that YJ Coolaide.

Thorn won a state championship with ESM. What have the great coaches from TG and Legacy ever accomplished. If you call putting talented girls on the field and staying out of the way coaching, you are right those clubs have excellent coaches.



Really? Thorn didn't win it. She had one go to girl. that was who won it. def not thorn. that is a joke

parents should not be allowed to coach period. mYBE the shakeup at YJ is good and maybe there will be kids that should have played and will finally get a chance. lots of great players that were sat on for a long time. BUT will see how itall shakes out another parent coach is not good not good for the kid either.. it just creates a bad enviroment looks like favoritism even if its not... it will..

I've seen it before.. just when you get the team right where you want it... the wins and loses don't mean anything anymore.. all the tournaments become showcases, college coaches wanna see the girls play and dont care about the score... it become an individual event

Great coach? The guy looked like he was sleeping on the sideline at the Mid Atlantic. Anybody can win with the talent on TG. You want a good coach go to Legacy.

this is how its been since 3rd grade. it will now only get worse as another dad is coaching.. this is not going away any time soon, but at this point its a lost cause. they will never be the top team...TG will be top then Legacy

So how much rhetoric is going to go one through the fall and winter?...Will fall tourneys be useful in gauging what kinda teams still exist? Probably not and who cares anyway. It doesn't matter much in the big picture, to address the earlier comment about whether we as adults should even care about this stuff, well by the way the answer is no...I agree with the earlier poster there is no reason to put stock in wins and loses anymore, pride in who is best doesn't amount to a hill of beans going forward...being in the top tourneys with high level coaches watching is the goal now for most and there is plenty of room at the table for that. If your kid plays for one of the better teams, be thankful, they will play in front of lots of coaches. If not on a top team, don't frete, they will find you if your talented. Concentrate on your girls skill sets getting better, not the number of goals they score or assists...it is early for this age group but not unreasonable to think about recruitment starting next summer. So lets agree to disagree on who is better than who...hope for good games with high level play on both sides of the ball, onesided victories are boring and don't give your kid a chance to show much...these teams need each other and they need each other to be competitive...enjoy the fall all.

Well said, one important take away from your message is that you need to be on the field playing to be seen by coaches. If your daughter is riding the bench while coaches daughter/favorites (we all know them...the ones who drop passes, take bad shots, turn the ball over) are playing the whole game, it’s time to find a new team!

good advice! It is hard to navigate and is frustrating watching the politics of it all. I think that is what makes people crazy. Watching sup par coaches players get time, while amazing players ride the bench. Get on a team where your kid plays.

YJ didn’t play any good teams at “Nationals”. I guess you missed the memo that it is a low level tournament.

Watching all 3 teams play this past summer in my opinion YJ and TG definitely have more talent than Legacy. Legacy has the best coaching of the 3.

You are correct but I wouldn’t use Underarmour as an example.

College coaches know that too much politics and tryouts at Underarmour are rigged big time. Heard it from a former evaluator first hand who was completely unbiased.

That's awesome news, glad YJ will be playing 4 starting adult middies...smh…..just be happy she likes lacrosse and stop worrying about stacking up to others. It must have been a tough summer for you watching your daughters team not "dominate" as you expected them to.....from this point on it's mainly showcase events where everyone plays 50/50.....remember colleges look at the parents on the sidelines too...try to keep yourself in check this summer, if possible.....

Adding another daddy coach who wants everything to go through his daughter. You are more likely looking at an implosion than success. Only 1 ball doesn't bode well for this team as selfish play will dominate.

Yeah the LI team lost ... by two in the final game .. to Baltimore.. hardly a knock on the LI team.
The team and those four "elite" 2023's represented pretty well, find something else to pick on.

Keep in mind that Yj will have 4 under amour all Americans on the midfield to start. and another that would have made it if she tried out. . So pass this memo around Jack butt.. So congratulation, you were a part of the best middle school team on long island... Now step aside and let the adults thru.. so they can get to work.....GET COMFORTABLE !

Hopefully you are joking cause you sound like a complete hammerhead.


that has got to be a joke...team will now implode and self destruct with all the politics and ridiculous deals. good luck for the majority of that team sidelined.

Was just looking at these US Club Lacrosse rankings. Did they just randomly pick names out of a hat?? Or maybe they forgot that Top Guns just beat M&D to win the MA Championship? Heros never beat TG either. I also don't see Legacy so high. How are they above Thorn? NXT too low. Who even is MD United? (I actually know who they are, but they do't belong in the top ten)

Can someone comment on this? Just Don't get it!

It does to a point. They factor in not just wins and losses but also strength of schedule. Thorns team never plays a tough schedule. That’s not a secret.

Why? Neither of those teams were very good last summer against top competition. And for the person saying the list is wrong, what is your evidence against?

My grade schooler is interested in playing travel lacrosse in the Farmingdale area. We’ve never played before but she’s always been a top athlete in soccer and basketball. I heard the LI Yellow Jackets are the best club, but also that the owner Carol Rose is racist and perhaps even transgender too. Appears very possible based on internet pics of her (sorry but she looks like a dude) and the club (everyone looks alike). Also found Rose’s Twitter profile and saw that deplorably she’s an active supporter of the orange traitor in the White House. Not a character role model I want for my adopted immigrant daughter, but then it’s also clear that the Yellow Jackets are tremendously successful. I don’t think it’s right to fault the character of the entire club or the many other coaches without at least asking for honest feedback first. What’s been everyone’s experience?

Heros beat TG at Lax for Cure this year. I believe that Heros has never lost to TG's. If you are going to talk thrash maybe you should have your facts in order.

Hero's did beat TG. However TG beat M&D 2x last summer and once in the fall and they are ranked #1? M&D did not win Lax for the Cure or the Mid Atlantic the only 2 tournaments with a championship format. And who did MD United beat to be ranked #3?

True, my daughter plays for TG, and Heros beat us by one goal last summer, think that is the only time we played? We also beat M&D several times, as well as pretty much every other top team. We have a better all around record when compared to Heros. With that said, there is so much parity amongst the top teams, and no real #1. Any of the top teams can beat each other in any game. Although fall ball is not a real indication due to many missing, will be interesting to see how the games go in a couple weeks, I see we will be playing both M&D and Heros. Will be fun!

These rankings are a waste and the only ones that look at these are parents. We have our kids in club lacrosse to get looked at for playing in college. When it comes to getting recruited all that matters is your daughters reaching out to colleges to come see them play. When they come to see them play they will only stay for a half at most. They could care less who won the game.

I love girl's lacrosse. No scores posted on TourneyMachine half the time. No playoffs or championships. No extra balls on the endline. No scorekeeper. It's like paying full price for a car wash that only cleans the left half of your car.

Anyway, please don't leave us in suspense. What were the final scores?

M&D lost by a hair to TG and got dominated by YJ Thorn/Colbert. Score of 10-8 was from final 2 minute window dressing from 10-6.
YJ also controlled MD United, led Grizzlies until settling on tie, beat Steps, LaxManiax and BBL Elite. Not too shabby for first weekend playing together !!!

Thanks for asking, TG had a great weekend despite missing players. Looks like M&D should slide down to about #5 after last weekend.

Wow , you all have a lot of excuses ,missing players ,settling on a tie, 2 minute window dressing .Or in other words , not a deeply talented team, the best we could do was tie the game as both teams are equally matched,they made a run at the end but thank goodness for shorter games. PATHETIC.

So glad that you can FINALLY post that your daughters YJ won games. It took you until 9th grade and merging of two teams to do it. Relax and show some humility that your daughters team now plays in top brackets because we all know that up until now, your daughters team played in B brackets and even LOST to B teams. Didn’t see those teams on here bragging about beating down on you tho. Typical YJ trash.

I’ve seen this team since they were in 3rd grade. They were always mediocre. They have one stand out player, girl from MC. Now that they added the Igloo player, yes only one that is a stand out, they have two girls that can play. That will carry this team far. The rest of the girls will be along for the ride, but will not play at top colleges.

Okay , this average talent team beat MD by 2 in a short fall ball game, went 4-0-1 against the other teams we played but I will say 5-0-1 because I am a sad desperate parent who’s kid has been on the worst top YJ team in a long time . TWISTED.
That said I enjoyed your first pathetic post more “controlled “ MD United is amazing , amazingly pathetic. The college coaches are going to really enjoy getting to know the guy bragging about his kids team doing so well in the short game time fall tournament .

M&D has a bad weekend. Happens. Overall record speaks for itself. It’s great to have good competitive games, time to stop chest pounding and worry about your own kids individual performance. As long as your team is in the top mix, what your daughter does on the field is far more important than the win at this stage.

Since 4th grade, YJ A has always been the dumpster fire of 2023. Why is that exactly?

I’m sure TG and Legacy look forward to seeing your girls at tryouts next year.

News FLASH....brine AA games and those bogus money grab 'select' teams are a joke.
Ask any college coach and the only legit 'who's who of HS lacrosse" is the UA underclassman games. A girl making the UA long island team separates herself from the rest. So you all want to talk about who is better, TG, or elevate or YJ; well the best girls are the ones that make the UA long island team. Usually those girls are from the older grade but I believe 5 or 6 2023 girls made last summers team think 2 from TG and 4 or 5 from the new YJ team. This summer the command team will be mostly 2023 girls with a few 24's.. The top girls in this 23 class should be training and working to make that team. You go to that tourney in MD and college coaches are lined up by the dozen watching those games.
So whatever team you are on, if your daughters goal is to be a top player and be seen then her goal should be to make that team. Good luck to all the 2023 girls; its a very deep class here on the island

UA is the same weekend as G8 next year. From what I’m hearing Coaches will be putting a priority on recruiting G8 over UA.

UA is the same weekend as G8 next year. From what I’m hearing Coaches will be putting a priority on recruiting G8 over UA.


Guess there will be a lot of TG players that make UA...

Not sure who told you that but they misinformed you. The top programs will be at UA not Nike G8
If you were a coach would you go watch the best 20 from each area if you could or would you go watch a tourney of 50 travel teams???

We’ll some of the Coaches your talking about are the same ones that must of misinformed me. The Coaches will want to get a last look at the 22s before making there offers in about a month. For the most part there will only be a few 22s that make the Highlight UA team. Most of the teams will be made up of majority 21s.

[quote=Anonymous]News FLASH....brine AA games and those bogus money grab 'select' teams are a joke.
Ask any college coach and the only legit 'who's who of HS lacrosse" is the UA underclassman games. A girl making the UA long island team separates herself from the rest. So you all want to talk about who is better, TG, or elevate or YJ; well the best girls are the ones that make the UA long island team. Usually those girls are from the older grade but I believe 5 or 6 2023 girls made last summers team think 2 from TG and 4 or 5 from the new YJ team. This summer the command team will be mostly 2023 girls with a few 24's.. The top girls in this 23 class should be training and working to make that team. You go to that tourney in MD and college coaches are lined up by the dozen watching those games.
So whatever team you are on, if your daughters goal is to be a top player and be seen then her goal should be to make that team. Good luck to all the 2023 girls; its a very deep class here on the island[/quot


While I agree the UA teams are usually the more "legit" representation of the better players from each region there is still a ton of politics involved ."Working and training to make that team " is ridiculous , work and train to be the best player you can be and the rest will take care of itself. Lined u by the dozen is not exactly true either , yes many are there but no more than at the A level of other big tournaments.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2023-9th Grade Fall 2019/Summer 2020 - 12/02/19 04:27 PM
I think you both make fair points.
We can all speculate on what is better or worse in the future but we can’t argue with what has already happened.
If you look at the history of the UA underclass tourney since it started; about 15 years and prior to that the big team was the Empire State games. Look at where those boys/girls went on to play college ball. Probably 90% went in to top 10 programs.
That said It’s only a small select number of kids that make it; not going to get into politics but as we know there will always be a little Door_Open_And&Door_Open_And involved in any lacrosse team, so my point is there are many very good girls that don’t make the team or don’t try out. They will find those girls at other tourneys or via videos or word of mouth. If a girl is that good..... you will he found!!!
So I won’t argue that the UA isn’t the best group of girls at one place, but it’s not the only way. And not to sound cliche but a girls options are increased immensely when she has excellent grades. Good luck 2023. Lots of you will be playing varsity this year, hope to see you tear it up, and to those that have already played up, keep working hard.

Being that M&D lost to your tier 2 selections (Capital Blue, Steps), I would called this skewed already. Plus SW beat M&D so I suppose they should be a top 5 above them too. Perhaps you did not see things as you thought.

M&D had a tough fall losing to Steps, Skywalkers, TG and YJ. If you listed it in order M&D ranked 1 is questionable
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2023-9th Grade Fall 2019/Summer 2020 - 12/02/19 09:20 PM
Hahahaha.
So you think when an unranked team beats a top 10 team that means they should jump into the top 25 in football, basketball or any sport. They are called upsets and they happen.
That was the first and only time M&D lost to steps or capital.
Great win for those teams but don’t mean they belong in top tier.
Does it?? I think outside that win just this fall steps lost to YJ, Monster and Ultimate CC.
Alabama lost to Auburn Saturday. Does that mean auburn is in the playoff picture?? Nope they have 3 losses.

notIntelligent response. Its called a pattern of bad loses. In the short fall season, your M&D team lost to, your perceived tier 2 teams. What about a lose to teams last year that you didn't even mention?

Duke was #1 in BB. Had a bad loss to SFA. So they dropped from the top rank. If they had 2 of those in back to back weekends, where would you put Duke BB then?

Like I said, not a logical response at all.

Next...

M&D has 4 losses in probably 7 years prior to the fall. Doesn’t drop them into 2nd tier.
Next yourself
M&D still the best.

M&D is still top tier, maybe just not clear #1. The top tier is probably bigger than just those you listed though, as parity seems to dominate among top teams. NXT and Capital Blue went to finals of Level Nine, so I think both could be considered top tier afterwards, although I don't know if you would have had them in it before. But when you look at what they did over the fall (NXT wins vs Skywalkers, Grizzlies, Ultimate CC, Capital Blue, BBL Elite; and Capital Blue wins vs M&D, Monsters, Salt City, BBL Elite, Mass Elite and only losses to Tier 1 teams), they probably go into the Tier 1 category too. So M&D's losses aren't bad loses, just loses to other Tier 1 teams. Which makes the point that Tier 1's are probably teams that beat each other, but then beat the other Tiers when they play them.

You bring up great points. So many nut job parents want to call their kids team #1, which is ridiculous. How about appreciate the talented teams out there and be happy that your kids are playing a sport that they love (hopefully). Enjoy the competitive spirit of the great organizations. Most of all what the next poster said “coaches recruit players not teams/organizations.”

First of all...4 losses in the last "7" (6) years is not even close to being true. And yeah...I get it was said in jest.

No one said that it drop M&D to 2nd tier. It was to respond to the lunacy of the tier system stated as M&D did lose to perceived 2nd tier teams. So don't get all protective and such. And at this time, M&D is not the best team. Fact...

No college recruiter ever cared what teams won how many games. The top players will all go to top schools for all these teams. That is all that matters. That is why we play club lacrosse to get seen.

That is not going to happen. At best 1-2 girls from each top teams will play in UA. So you going to give up a great recruiting tournament for max of 2 players per team? By the way UA isn't the ticket to playing at top schools. Many top tier players never play on the UA teams.

Contrary to your point which I happen to agree with the YJ have dropped out Nike G8
I guess they think they will have a few more than 2 on the UA team.

I am going to agree that you don’t need to make UA to be considered a great player.
However check out the roster for Long Island in 2014, or 15 and You will see household names of girls who have gone on to become college AA’s. So no you don’t need to make UA but if your daughter does, history has shown us it goes a long way and many have followed through with great careers.
Just making it to the callback game is tough and a good accomplishment

Do girls showing up for this get a fair look or is the team basically picked before the tryout?? Over $100 to tryout but heard they had like 150 girls tryout last summer. Sounds to me that unless they know your name this is a UA donation.

The 150 is comprised of 8(?) or so teams. They also have a combine.
Its different from the UA AA. That would only be one team from your area, The 150 is 8 teams.

You’re it’s 8 teams at UA150 but UA underclass has 12 teams (regions)
Obviously a lot harder to make Baltimore and Long Island team than it Is South or West.
You would think that the regions would want to be represented with the best team possible. That said politics always finds its way when it comes to these events. I figure an area like Baltimore or LI is represented with the best of the best from 1-18. 19 and 20 on the roster could possibly be a Door_Open_And&Door_Open_And but they better be a darn good Door_Open_And&Door_Open_And

UA 150 is good but making the UA underclass from a hot bed area is much more beneficial

M&D at one time thought they were the hands down best team. However there is parity in this age group in the top tier. Anyone can be beaten on any given day. This summer will be interesting and competitive. The top teams will be in the top brackets facing off against each other. With their new additions I'm sure YJ will now be in the top bracket and that will add another strong team into the mix.

Agree Legacy should be in the top tier.
Excellent coach
Very good goalie and no weak spots on the field.
Do not have the talent that YJ and TG has across the board but they are a very good team

Legacy has Excellent Coach, Very good Goalie, an athletic kiddie and very good players in most position. Not Tier 1 though. Would get handled easily by those teams. Right in the mix of Tier 2. Winning many losing some. Considering most players were on other teams when they formed and they had to build from a Third Tier level, it is a nice team after 3 years.

Nice Team but Not their 1.

YJ & TG are better at every position. Not a single position where they are better and as a Team, very small and not as physical.

It’s Ok, to rise from Teur 3 to Teir 2 and as you said, have a couple of isolated wins agains NXT and Skywalkers. That is Nice. Just not Tier 1 competitive consistently.

And Monster Purple I believe.

I’m sure all the parents and young ladies involved would love to scrimmage. The clubs will never do it. We all have to drive 5 hours to play in different brackets and never see each other except in rest stops along the Jersey Tpke.

And was far from handled by Hero's Green when played. I think Legacy would welcome to play YJ or TG on the island sometime.

Legacy wants no part of YJ. YJ is much improved and the new coach is a win at any cost guy

Legacy has good coaching, a few excellent players and many good role players. Overall the skill level is very good. They play a team game which is admirable. They have a very organized offense and defense.

What Legacy lacks - and what keeps them from being a top team - is competitive spirit. 80% of those girls don't care if they win or lose. They don't hustle. They quit on GBs. They make a bad pass and shake their heads instead of re-defending. The behavior is endemic to the team.

There are a few girls who are competitive and they stand out, especially with the backdrop of the other girls being so blah. Thats not a bad place to be during the recruiting years for those few girls. But on the whole, the team will never be anything substantial.

Sounds like a Legacy parent made that critique. Proud of their team but frustrated with those that don’t hustle the way this Parent expects.
Hoping their child, that must be hustling, will stand out among that backdrop when recruiting time comes. Seems they have a brutally honest assessment of their own team and teammates. Not a bad thing until your teammates hear your opinion about them out loud. Everyone witnessed that guy.

The 2nd paragraph relates to coaching. If the coach tolerates girls giving up on ground balls, not redefending or hustling the coach should be held accountable.

Kudos to the coach. Like you said, very few studs and they’ve come a long way anyway. Impressive.

An A and AA team. In other words an A and B team just like everyone else. Unless that "AA" enters into some top brackets in this summers tournaments they are B team and everyone knows it.

You are 100% right. But let me ask, who cares? If the girls want to look like slobs in front of college coaches that's their problem.

I don’t care if you call it AA or A or D. The top 2023 team at YJ that is coached by ESM coach is now the BEST team in the country. They are so deep with talent; they will lose some games and may encounter some sideline chatter because parents who are used to seeing their Sally play all game now will embrace a new role that may mean less minutes of PT.
That said top to bottom roster; YJ is the deepest and most talented in the 2023. Took them til HS but CR got this age too

That's great to be on the "best team" however players get recruited not teams. And before they are anointed the best team let's see how the chemistry on this team is lots of mouths to feed.

“Rather have my child play than be in a backup roll” means you do not see your daughter as a starter. In that case, yes, go and be happy and “get what you pay for!”
If you see your child as a starter, they must have some level of ego. The Greats in any sport have all had an egoist some kind that motivates them. That is the difference, the “piece” that separates them from good and great! It makes the best the best.
This so-called dumpster fire has the talent to torch. The games will speak for themselves.

No doubt this team has a lot of talent however it will be interesting how the other players adjust to a new alpha female on the team with her Dad running the show.

With players that started on Varsity in 8th grade on 7 different top teams, 4 Under Armor U15 All Americans, 4 making Team USA U15 combine and 2 making the team, the top 2023 goalie in country, and a combination of top Igloo talent and YJ talent.

This so-called dumpster fire has the talent to torch. The games will speak for themselves.



Disagree here as our schedule is strong and lots of depth and good balanced pt.

Agree 100 percent in the fall the pt was fairly distributed. Pt going forward will be based on merit


Not in the summer at showcases where everyone has to play at least 50% time. It's why wins and losses don't matter. Most teams don't coach to win. The point is to get the girls recruited.

A lot of bolster for a team that has not done anything in 5 years. You literally had to join another team and pay the other teams coach to make yourselves feel relevant. You guys are a couple years late to the party.

This team also had 6-8 make the callback team at UA underclassman tryouts.
You are correct; 4 made the actual team, 2 from Nassau and 2 from Suffolk. This summer the UA command team will have those 4 and probably 4 more

In the 2020 age group TG had the top team. It all fell apart when Levy left to start Legacy and an excellent group of players went to YJ. Before the season YJ were the hands down best team in the country prior to playing a game. Many of those players went to top D1 schools however on the field the team didn't share the ball and selfish play was at an all time high. The Dream team didn't turn out that way lots of unhappy players and parents. There were too mouths to feed. Everyone trying to prove they were the top player. The moral to the story is players get recruited not teams. If you don't get good play time who cares how many games you win.

I am sure Nike G8 will have many coaches there; very nice tourney.
UA will as well being it still has the best players from different regions all over the country.
I am sure the top 20 will be well represented at UA
I am not sure how good your daughter is, but if she can make that team and the goal is being recruited, then this is the one tourney you kindly say no thank you to your club coach.

So for many, many years now I have been going to UA. There had been close to zero college coaches there, ever. The fact is that is a small tournament as far as the number of girls there, and nearly all the girls that did go were already committed. No reason for coaches to go. This will now change with the new Junior year communications rule in NCAA. But it was never a recruiting event, ever. And it was never about being seen there. But it is the absolute best stamp your daughter (or son) can put on their resume. Especially if you are from a highly competitive area. This trumps G8 big time, if your kid makes it, you gotta let her go. G8 is a good tournament, but the coaches will have tons and tons of opportunities at dozens of other tournaments. To put it in perspective, there will be hundreds and hundreds of LI kids playing at G8. Want to separate a player from those hundreds, be one of the 20 kids from the two age groups combined to be selected for UA. Does not matter if there are no coaches there, they know exactly who makes this team. No Brainer.

My daughter is excellent however the girls that made it last year had a lot of political pull. It’s more than being a good player the evaluations are done by coaches who push their own players. Can’t blame them it is what it is.

Absolutely. G8 is a great tournament, but it's just that, a club tournament. If you are in a hot bed and make the UA team you have to go. The person saying that there aren't many coaches at UA don't know what they're talking about. While they've mostly cleared out by the time the playoffs start the days before that are packed with the best coaches in the country. With the new rules, 3 of the 4 grades that attend the Underclass tournament will be uncommitted. It's a shame that the two overlap this year but you'd be crazy to turn down UA.

100%, you make the UA team from areas like Baltimore, DC, NJ or Long Island then you go to UA. Very hard to make but all the top coaches are there cause it brings together the best of the best from all over the country. Any of the 12 regions is a great accomplishment to make. West and Southwest , south and Midwest are still more behind than the boys are in catching up to the Northeast but they are getting better

Sure the UA is great but so is the G8. I know girls from 21 class who are going to top 10 schools didn't make UA team in Baltimore region or didn't even try out. Outside the Baltimore or NE region the girls making the UA drop off big time.

If you think that the UA is going to make or break your recruiting it isn't.

If your club tells you your expected to represent your team at G8 then I would listen. Don’t get mad at your daughters lack of playing time in the tournaments preceding G8 if you choose no to.

It is very unfortunate that the two events overlap because they are both great. My daughter has played in G8 and has been on an under armour team. We live in a hotbed and being on UA did not help her get recruited, being on a good team (club, prospect and hs) and playing well in good (good = well attended by coaches) events did. If you live in a non hotbed area and are on a team that typically does not draw a lot of coaches, do UA. Otherwise, play well at G8 and the rest of the events your teams play in and go to the prospect events at the schools you want to go to and meet the coaches and tell them you want to go to school there and play there. Good luck.

Maybe listen if they were going to bench your daughter for going, and then look for a new club for next season. If the club is any good, they typically will have a few players who make the UA annually, and they will understand that it a huge accomplishment for the player and for their club. They should whole heartedly support any and all girls who make it. Knowing that a club would not allow my daughter to attend if she made AU, I would be looking for a new club the following year. What club is telling kids they cant go? Cant imagine any of the Big Dogs are saying that, they know all too well what it means.

Reese and Levy were watching the younger girls semis last year (along with Stanford, Oregon, etc.). Coaches were definitely at UA last year.

What team has more talent than that new YJ 23 Thorn team?? Honestly top to bottom no team on Long Island or anywhere for that matter compares. Not saying they are the best team, or they win every tourney, but when this class starts committing, no team will have more kids going to top D1 programs than YJ

This age group definitely benefits from all the teams that the YJ club has produced in years prior. Quite frequently the YJ top teams are the most highly recruited players of any team in the country, that aside, this particular age group has been way below par for typical YJ teams. Maybe now after all the combination of teams and coaches etc, this team “might” approach what it should have been all along.

It is a very deep team. That is the different between YJ and others. You see it on the 2020, 2021, 2023, and now you will see it on 2023. The top players from other teams can compete with them but when you begin subbing. It is no comparison. This becomes obvious when September rolls around. The best academic and athletic schools are grabbing the yellow jackets. This year if you remember what happened in September was a great example. Say what you want but the the YJ girls were scooped up first.

Honestly speaking do you care where the other girls on your team end up. Does it matter if you have the most D1 commits? I wish them all the best but my priority is my daughter and she ends up going to the school she wants to go to. Deep team to me means less play time for my daughter. Win, lose or draw my daughter will be on the field where coaches can watch her. I've never seen a coach care about who's standing on the sideline of this deep lacrosse team.

When it comes to show cases you want as much play time as possible more opportunity to be seen by coaches. As far as the YJ are concerned there will be little to no subbing in playoff games so the depth won't matter. If your daughter is not a starter she won't get on the field. Don't for a second think play time will be distributed equally.

First of all you have a new coach and new players you have no idea how he will play it. If the fall is any indication play time was not equal. I’m sure his daughter will be splitting time equally with other girls. You obviously never watched an igloo game.

Daddy coach won’t be very fair he wasn’t in the Fall. There were two championship format tournaments last summer Lax for the cure and the mid Atlantic. YJ didn’t win either. Are you talking about the 23 age group? They didn’t make the playoffs last summer

yes 2023 age bracket...things won't be fair.. Not a deep team...starters are great ....the benchwarmers are there bc of politics/Door_Open_And&Door_Open_And etc. . Its been that way since the start...although along the way they couldn't hold on to talent...now a new dad coach? seriously? youd think theyd learn

This Team is ready for the haters. The “Lost Talent” over -the-years have been those that can certainly start in many places, but not quite the same as the “Kept talent” over-the-years. The addition by ALL clubs of players from other clubs happens annually. This addition of talent and focus by All Coaching shall be put to the test. My daughter, who has started for years will see less playing time, she might see some others get favored. Part of the territory. All players from All clubs on Long Island will be just fine. We need to be too.

It may look like a top 60 list and the top 10 on the list probably are top 10 girls but NO WAY the whole list is in order. You got some kids in the mid 20,s and 30’s who are top 10 kids. 2 beer kids on TG aren't in top 20.

Who were they ranked by??.......Oh yea, no one! They only have a couple players who have played varsity. Pipe down and stop ranking players before they play, means nothing. I can respect Newday ranking to 100 pre season. I believe there were a couple YJ girls on there, which were deserving. You must be one of those parents who post all over FB that your daughter was "ranked". Maybe calm down until she gets ranked by a real organization, it's embarrassing. Otherwise stop, just stop!

This list is Not in order so it is only displaying the top 60 players on the island. Individual Rankings are usually done after Sophomore seasons.

LOL same back of the cage nonsense. You aren't any kind of player unless you play for YJ. This 9th grader belongs in this group. Top players lists when one game hasn't been played this year. You people are out of your mind. I can talk lacrosse all day long but constructively the way it should be, Sharing information, tips & ideas for how to make this sport better. Our girls better. Ready for college play. Like adults. Missing out on the purity of the sport.

This 9th grader belongs in this group???? No clue who you are talking about; outside the hint she doesnt play for YJ.
Most of these lists are silly and for entertainment since everyone is trying to stay sane while NO games are being played. The Newsday top 100 is only legit list for these girls cause its based on what you have done...hence only a few girls are on that list from 2023.
The 2023 list on this site is 60 girls...... pretty much like most 60 name lists, the top 40-50 belong, the other 10-20 can be switched or left alone (subjective); that said its very hard to be on the list if you arent on 1 of the 5 top club teams in this age group on LI.. YJ, TG, Legacy, Jesters, and Elevate.. I am sure there are some very good girls that are not on the list; who cares. they will have time to prove they are elite

How bout these best defender and best goalie polls??? You really think these are legit?? It should be called whose MOM is most nuts?? and will go to social media and beg their friends who Know Nothing about lacrosse to vote for my Sally or Jane. btw the 2 best goalies in 23 is clear. YJ goalie from RP and the Legacy goalie from BBP. Never even heard of most of those kids.

While... I agree 100% with the first part of your post...and saw first hand how it is simply asking as many people across the country that you know to vote AND 100% that the RP and BBP goalie are top goalies...but to ask who are these other goalies might mean you have not been around. The NPT/YJ goalie, the TG goalies names are certainly KNOWN and well up there. BYW...my daughter is Not a goalie.

I agree that the UA tryouts are the real best of the best. those are the top 15 girls in the 2023 and top 6 or 7 in the 2024. Each year the younger grade usually takes up 4-8 roster spots depending on depth. Not sure how many 23 were on team last year but I would bet its single digits. Those girls are the top ones in their class. Whispers and rants will be made that politics plays a part in the selection of the team, but I think UA does a great job at limiting that......i am not a fool and sure there kid be some influence for the last spot or 2 but this team represents the region and these coaches want to WIN. The UA team is the best of the best, If you think your girl deserves to be on these lists and/or she does, then go tryout for the UA team. I believe outside the tryout fee, everything else is free. DEF NOT a money grab, if that was a fear. Good luck to all the girls who tryout, and if you were thinking about it, just do it and take a shot. Making it just to the call back game is a nice accomplishment. My guess is if its on we will see close to 200 girls come out for the team. Good luck to all of them

I apologize, and yes I know most of the names..... a few I didnt, but yes the YJ and TG goalies I have heard of. I never seen or heard of the one that many know according to votes; maybe she is great, not sure. From what I am told she plays for a club that does attend most of the top tourneys. It doesnt matter, if she is a great goalie they will find her

The only team that has demonstrated consistently, on a year to year basis, to be the best in the age group from LI is TG Black. YJ wants to combine clubs with Igloo and claim they are the best in the age group now but that time has come and gone...it is recruiting time.

TG Black has 4-5 of the best 2023's and one of the best 2024's in the country. As a coach, among coaches they are already on the radar of the top lax college programs. Coaches talk to each other. The list a coach makes on the sideline watching the games is the one that matters the most.

BOTC must have needed some increased traffic because polls of any kids that didn't play the season is worthless and is just a parent chest pounder. How many people can Sally call to get to vote for her. You guys must be bored.

Can’t argue with that. TG has been best team for this age. YJ is now.
Both teams are excellent and Legacy is a close 3rd.
The polls are for fun and the best players in this class will make the UA team.
Be about 90% YJ and TG and a few kids from legacy

Not involved in this age group at all, but it sounds like YJ has taken over the spot as top team, but in the end it does not matter, the YJ players will get the benefit of the doubt in recruiting, way before TG. Historically YJ blows away TG in recruiting and this age group will likely prove to be no different. Even if the talent does not warrant this, it will happen. I know someone is going to claim college coaches recruit players, not teams! Believe me, there is no greater leapIng point to get on a coaches radar As a player, than being on the blue roster. For the top handful of players on each team, it probably makes no difference, but the bottom 3/4 of players from each team, coming from YJ is a huge advantage.

Absolutely true YJ players on the 2nd line of their teams get over recruited and never see the field at the next level.

BOTC must have needed some increased traffic because polls of any kids that didn't play the season is worthless and is just a parent chest pounder. How many people can Sally call to get to vote for her. You guys must be bored.

Can’t argue with that. TG has been best team for this age. YJ is now.
Both teams are excellent and Legacy is a close 3rd.
The polls are for fun and the best players in this class will make the UA team.
Be about 90% YJ and TG and a few kids from legacy


TG ended last summer by defeating M&D black and winning the Mid Atlantic Championship. So I would say TG are the top team on the field and the YJ are the top team on paper.

Not involved in this age group at all, but it sounds like YJ has taken over the spot as top team, but in the end it does not matter, the YJ players will get the benefit of the doubt in recruiting, way before TG. Historically YJ blows away TG in recruiting and this age group will likely prove to be no different. Even if the talent does not warrant this, it will happen. I know someone is going to claim college coaches recruit players, not teams! Believe me, there is no greater leapIng point to get on a coaches radar As a player, than being on the blue roster. For the top handful of players on each team, it probably makes no difference, but the bottom 3/4 of players from each team, coming from YJ is a huge advantage.


Clearly true every year! Even some of the B players will get the advantage over other clubs A teams. My daughter is not a YJ but I saw it happen in her age group.

Just saw that UA tryout dates are starting to be announced, and the tournament date has been announced for early August, which is great news!! Just one thing I thought was odd. How is Thorn aloud to be a coach, and be involved in picking the team when her daughter will be most likely trying ou? Isn't that an obvious conflict of interest?

I’m just so glad my kid is a defender. Seems to be much less competition and backstabbing.
Although it does stink when your (NY based)team can’t score against Florida or Colorado teams and loses and there’s nothing you can really do to help with that problem. Defenders don’t get enough props.

the team isnt chosen by the coaches. UA/CSE has reps there that overlook the process. Usually anywhere from 8-12 evaluators that grades the girls after each scrimmage/game. Girls are broken into teams and let just let them play All the evaluators go into a room to go over the grades and come back and announce the top 40 or so for the call back game. I am not a fool, there is always some politics involved and YJ coach will have power to choose the bottom few spots.
Levy who is legacy was the head coach last summer for Command and the team was basically all YJ and TG. If the girl dominates and shows she is a top 10 player at the tryout, she will make the team.

CR is the head of UA northeast. Negotiations when the coaches gather is based more on where they play then how they performed at the tryouts.

You must've read that off their website. The reality is whoever that year's Coach is for that age group basically picks their favorites from their team. YJ selectors all pick their girls, regardless of what happens at tryouts. You couldn't find a more biased 'open' tryout. Save your money, look at the top 6-8 girls on both YJ and TG teams and combine them - there's your UAAA 2023 team. They should bring evaluators in from different regions to eliminate the obvious favoritism.

Not true at all. A tryout should be for those girls who excel under the added pressure of being evaluated and who rise to the occasion. If they have a bad showing, that’s more fuel for the fire to do better next year. Most of these ‘elite’ teams are carried by those 2-3 truly exceptional players. The others are interchangeable and shouldn’t be favored over others at tryouts b/c they ride a certain team’s bench.

So you think reputation and past play should be totally eliminated from the selection?? This team is the best of the best and they want to win. Do you want the girl who is a stand out HS player, and travel player the past couple years and cut her because she had an off day? The facts are this; the top 12-15 spots are slotted; the 23's who made it last year, and a few other spots taken by the girls we have seen stand out in this group for the past years. There are 7-10 spots open for this girls who can go down there and dominate and show that they can help the team win it all.

Even if your theory is correct; the tryout is 150-200 of the best girls on long island. Split into 6 or so teams and full field games run for hours... it's a great event for a girl to show she belongs even if she doesnt make the team. Most obviously dont make the team, and thats okay. Go into this with the mindset of trying to see how your daughter plays with and against the best in her age group in the mecca of lacrosse. I think confidence can be gained by playing well, and not be lost by not being one of the selected 23. Just a thought.

There was a whisper that virtual tryout via highlight tapes could be part of selection process for some teams. I sure hope UA doest go that route. Doesn’t sound logical since some girls improved so much since last year or since the film they have on themselves. A team like UA needs a tryout to see what girls rise to the occasion.

UA set for August 6-9th
Biggest and most important tourney of summer.
Sigh your daughter up and roll the dice that she steps up and has an awesome tryout. Going to take great tryout to make this LI team. Good luck

Typically 4-5 spots open for legit opportunities. The rest of the players are already decided well prior to tryouts. Talk to the Mt Sinai coach who runs the show every year. All the other coaches fall in line and listen to him.

Guaranteed at least two Jesters will make the team this year with the Jesters owner/coach coaching his own daughters age group. And why would Thorn deserve 8-10 players? Is that because CR is in charge of the NE regions UA. Very good players in this age group across all Long Island teams.

It’s being put in by Corrigan who are super-anxious to get back to play. And it’s being held in Maryland not Ny or NJ. Not to say that MD hasn’t been conservative with stages. I just want to know if you know something no o e else does.
Also With the UA you can register by walking up, so you dont need to be invested until the last moment. Unlike most others.

They should just let the coaches of the travel teams all pick the team without a tryout. The top teams getting more than others. Kind of like All-County awards. Girls who were on the team last year get a bye, and YJ and TG get the most picks, the other clubs like Jesters and Legacy get a couple.

Maybe 2 Jester girls do make the team. I don’t know that team well but know they are 2nd tier after Thorn, TG and even Legacy.
8-10 girls on Thorn because 4 or 5 were on it last year and I am sure there are 4-5 more that deserve it.

8-10 girls from Thorn deserve to make the team, makes you wonder how many Top Guns deserve to make the team being that they were the best team in the age group last year.

8-10 girls on Thorn because 4 or 5 were on it last year and I am sure there are 4-5 more that deserve it.

8-10 girls from Thorn deserve to make the team, makes you wonder how many Top Guns deserve to make the team being that they were the best team in the age group last year.



Last few years I don’t think many would argue TG was the best team on island, but I am pretty sure it’s safe to say that Thorn is now the best.

Funny how YJ had to combine teams from 2 other clubs to even be in the conversation with TG! Ironically most are past the "whos better" argument and focused on recruiting. The ones worried about who wins a tournament are most likely the benchwarmers! It was fun when they are 10, they are 15 now! Best to make sure your daughter is good enough to start, the rest will take care of itself!

anyone who knows about this tourney also knows that it is a sure fire way of being seen by college coaches whether you make the team or not...stack your kid up against the best the island has to offer and see what happens...don't console yourself with the politics being the focus...it's how your kid plays plain and simple...and there will be coaches there in droves...

Clearly you don't. The point is that it doesn't matter how deserving,CR controls 90% of the list. I know many who went the first year or two and then never bothered to go back bc you don't really have a chance unless your on YJ or top 1-2 on your team. Even the tryout isn't fairly done with playing time unequal and only certain girls getting field time. But if you believe this helps your daughter, go ahead and contribute to the fund.

Wasn’t the Legacy coach one of the UA coaches? Will be interesting to see how if his girls make the team this year? The team did very well last year!

And that is with Levy coaching last year. So with all this talk about CR controlling 90% of it....that’s garbage. Plus for the LI region, what clubs do you expect to have players come from? Obviously YJ and TG are likely to have the most players, followed by the other clubs with 1 or 2 from each of them. With 9 of the top 11 in the BOTC rankings on LI playing for YJ- it is logical that a strong number make the team.

Correct
Original roster had 2 YJ.... 2 TG and 2 Igloo (now they are on YJ). One TG girl got hurt and she was replaced by a Legacy girl.
That’s all I believe from 23 class. Might have been 2nd alternate from legacy
So figure unless 1 of those girls hurt that’s 7 or 8 spots taken. Then 8 more will go to TG/YJ. 4-5 to the 24 class. And a few more spots to whoever has a sick tryout. If you have a dominant tryout you will make the team. Don’t care what program you are at.

😂😂 8-10?? They did gain a few very good girls from other teams. NOT original YJs. YJ has one original stud. Even so, they will now just be able to compete with the other top teams, who have basically been the same roster for years. So calm down there! And be careful of your bragging, the great additions to YJ, will only reduce the amount of time your daughter plays, so good luck with that!

You refuse to acknowledge that YJ has had much more talent than “one original stud” because you know the other studs make your daughter look even less talented.
Out of the 19 girls written up about after UA last year from All over the country, only 3 were from 2023. The Stud from Ct. Grizzlies and the two YJ girls. That’s out of hundreds of top talented players!!! These 2 young ladies are Studs on a team loaded with them. “Original YJ Stud” wasn’t even able to try out after carrying her HS team on fractured legs. Warrior !!

Add the YJ girls who came over from Igloo (2 seasons ago after 7th grade) who made UA and/or Team USA developmental along with twenty other Top caliber players and you get the most talented 2023 team by far. If you want to bellyache that any additions after 4th-7th grade create an asterisk because they were not “original” is absurd.

I remember reading posts back then that top talent would find its way to YJ and it certainly did. For the 8th-11th grade seasons, this team has been built into a juggernaut of talent. This does NOT take away that TG, M&D and Hero’s have been talented for years and the lower lever LI travel teams have 1 or 2 very talented players as well.

True story ! YJ 2023 is LOADED with talent. As hopefully most of you know , talent needs chemistry. If this teams does click, its over and they will be the best team in 2023. That's a big if. If everyone wants to be top dog, they will be difficult to watch. I think TG has a GREAT 2023 team (They have good talent and play very well as a unit and are tough to beat), along with CT Grizzlies (amazing talent on that team as well) M&D is always stacked along with Heros Green. I think this entire 2023 class will be a class to be remember in the years to come. I just hope at this point these kids can play and we can have these questions settled on the field.

Don't you guys realize that parents say the same thing on here about every class? lol

Who cares who the best team is? College coaches don't. The top players will go to the top schools. That's all that matters. Show well when you have a chance to impress someone. Plenty of girls that were studs in 8th grade disappear and end up at lower level colleges. Keep working hard and save the bragging for when your daughter signs an LOI

So... only YJ will get better? Granted they need to, but that is a a silly statement. ALL the top teams will be better! YJ will finally be competitive, due to the additions. Sadly the loyal friends & family girls on the bottom half of that roster (of 26) will rarely see playing time in meaningful games. My observation of this age group is that for most of the top teams they’re about 4/5 studs, but the whole team is solid and can get the job done. You remove the top 4/5 on the new and improved YJ team and they would have a tough time beating their B team. Top schools and scholarship money won’t run deep on that team. But 5 years from now the parents will be able to say “remember that time we beat TG & M&D” while cheering for their low level D1 daughter getting a 10% scholarship. Wake up!!

I know it doesn't matter, I am just curious.

TTT Talent to Torch



Since the full merger this team has only played in 2 fall tourneys.....going 5-0-1
Beating M&D and tying CT grizzlies

they will only get better;


So... only YJ will get better? Granted they need to, but that is a a silly statement. ALL the top teams will be better! YJ will finally be competitive, due to the additions. Sadly the loyal friends & family girls on the bottom half of that roster (of 26) will rarely see playing time in meaningful games. My observation of this age group is that for most of the top teams they’re about 4/5 studs, but the whole team is solid and can get the job done. You remove the top 4/5 on the new and improved YJ team and they would have a tough time beating their B team. Top schools and scholarship money won’t run deep on that team. But 5 years from now the parents will be able to say “remember that time we beat TG & M&D” while cheering for their low level D1 daughter getting a 10% scholarship. Wake up!!


Time will certainly tell. And with the ridiculous tournament rules and guidelines; let’s hope these programs do the right thing and schedule games with each other. I know the Jesters will play anyone. All the kids I am sure want to play each other. Hopefully we can get the top 6-8 teams to agree to play each other in August at night.
Would be great.
Let the kids play.
Take top 6 teams and then the next 6 and just play each other and have some fun.
How great would fields of dreams on a Thursday night to see
Elevate vs Jesters
TG vs YJ
YJ B vs Legacy
Liberty vs Empire
No reason this can’t happen

[quote=Anonymous]You refuse to acknowledge that YJ has had much more talent than “one original stud” because you know the other studs make your daughter look even less talented.
Out of the 19 girls written up about after UA last year from All over the country, only 3 were from 2023. The Stud from Ct. Grizzlies and the two YJ girls. That’s out of hundreds of top talented players!!! These 2 young ladies are Studs on a team loaded with them. “Original YJ Stud” wasn’t even able to try out after carrying her HS team on fractured legs. Warrior !!

Add the YJ girls who came over from Igloo (2 seasons ago after 7th grade) who made UA and/or Team USA developmental along with twenty other Top caliber players and you get the most talented 2023 team by far. If you want to bellyache that any additions after 4th-7th grade create an asterisk because they were not “original” is absurd.

I remember reading posts back then that top talent would find its way to YJ and it certainly did. For the 8th-11th grade seasons, this team has been built into a juggernaut of talent. This does NOT take away that TG, M&D and Hero’s have been talented for years and the lower lever LI travel teams have 1 or 2 very talented players as well.

YJ spent their time playing in B brackets last summer. How did those studs play when the original stud was out injured? They lost to the Hero’s B team. YJ are lucky Igloo merged with them and can bring credibility to the 23 team which CR knew she wouldn’t have it without the merge.

If they were as good as everyone says they are they would have been able to carry their teams last summer like the CT Grizzly girl carries that team. In the end they did not and both teams looked average against average competition. They are good players but they don’t make their team or teammates better. TG had major injuries to multiple starters and still only lost 3 games all summer.

TG only lost 3 games all summer? YJA has a few three loss tournaments every year. I have never seen so much hype for such a pedestrian team.

Listen, my daughter plays for a top team other than YJ. She is friends with the top cohort there, doesn’t like a bunch of the second stringers with big mouths. She said the the team is now legit due primarily to the new players. All is good, since these top girls will be on the same teams in college. For the rest of you arguing about who’s best, get a life. The one you have now is going to end in a couple years!

How true is this statement:

Since many 2023 clubs will not be holding tryouts for the next year - they take players back (they cut the ones they absolutely dont want) and they extend invites to new players (essentially recruits they have sought out).

Do these new player usually extend interest or are there ever any situations where the club will poach a player from another team? Does it work with more positions than others? Are middies in more demand than defense?

Your daughter needs to be off the charts good, and be playing for a lower tier team, which is not likely at this age. All positions are re recruited, but unless you’re currently playing on a big club and killing it, chances are that nobody’s coming knocking!

Both situations could happen. If you look for a better club/team for your daughter start with the coach and then look at roster size. Sometimes program directors and coaches will poach, but that is frowned upon by many. Rarely does a player get cut from a team when their are no longer tryouts, however some quit as they are either burned out or no longer interested. Yes middies are sought after more so than defenders as middies typically have more speed, better field vision, and more refined stick skills. Good luck.

Play for a team that has a competitive schedule and solid coaching. In addition you and your daughter will have to do some leg work contacting coaches and getting camp dates for the schools you are interested in. It also is huge to have someone from your clubs administration who will advocate for your daughter.

Here is a list of YJ 2021 comittments.

MIDFIELD

Any questions ? ................This is why you play for Yellow Jackets..... Support, Exposure, Friendship, Experience, Contacts and some of the best families you will ever meet. Ask any 2021 parent if they were happy with the decision to play for the Yellow Jackets. Ask some parents from other areas if they were happy with their recruiting experience. Trust me I have been through this process numerous times and when you visit schools and meet parents from other clubs they are in awe of the opportunities afforded our YJ girls.

Umm...Ok, you do realize this is the 2023 girls thread? No questions, and nobody cares about your 2021 daughter and her experience. The same can be said for girls who play on other teams. Your post is irrelevant since this is a different age group with their own talents, and or lack there of.

Angry man hoping he can ride the YJ recruiting train knowing his daughter stinks! Good luck! Fortunately, my daughter doesn't need YJ, TG or anyone else to get her recruited. Her talents speak for itself.

This would be the right and now ( no D1 coach contact till August 31, blackout extended till then...) only way your kid is going to be seen this summer because tourneys are going to be cancelled, so make it known to your teams that you want this or there will be no lacrosse for anyones kids this summer

That's 23 spots give or take, CJ takes checks from 100+ parents at any given age group. do the math, unless your kid is top team, you little. If your on "B" list teams, you at least get to play top teams and show your stuff against top teams...perhaps light up on someones radar...then get the full force of that teams recruitment help...i'd take my chances with Legacy or Elevate doing the right thing...

I appreciate someone sharing their experiences so that others may benefit. Seeing the success that certain clubs are able to achieve on a regular basis is very valuable to someone going through the process for the first time. I would love to hear from you about your clubs experience with regard to recruiting. Since 2021 is the last year to have been recruited it is the most recent information available.

Any score prediction of YJ Thorn vs Jesters??
Vegas line has it Thorn -7.5 goals over Jesters
From what I heard Thorn is loaded top to bottom. Jesters has some real good talent but not sure can keep up with YJ

I would agree with you that is the case but I heard the boys tourney in Tennessee was a huge success. They are playing alot in MD as well
So I think it won’t be all 12 regions. West and south and Midwest won’t come.
The team most likely will be 8-10 TG and YJ and 2 Jesters
Any other kids from any other programs really good enough to make team?? Worth a shot just to get some pure competition. Whole tryout is scrimmages so maybe it’s worth it despite not making it

So I think it won’t be all 12 regions. West and south and Midwest won’t come.
The team most likely will be 8-10 TG and YJ and 2 Jesters

Decent won’t cut it unless Levy is picking the team.


Levy had final say last year and only took 1-2 players from legacy who were originally alternates

Wondering why Legacy and TG aren’t doing the summer league? At least Legacy is playing tournaments. I would be pissed playing on TG paying full price for lame play dates. A shame the directors of the program put their pride above the best interests of the players!!

UA will happen and if you are talking about Jesters coach. I don’t care who is coaching, there will be 8-10 girls from Thorn and zero from Jesters if it’s legit which I think it is.

The zero UA girls Jesters team beats the 8-10 UA girls Thorn/Colbert team today. If its legit 8-10 Thorn girls will not be making UA. Jesters are legit.

Outsider here. Came to check out all talk about the new and improved YJ thorn team.
Very well played and exciting game. Jesters won by 1 or 2. Draws go to Jesters. Attack goes to YJ.
Let’s have more of these local contests. Stay here in the 631 and 516 all summer.

Need more of these games. Enough talent on LI that we shouldn't have to cross a bridge to play. Especially in this climate, check the egos at the door and let the girls play (and parents watch). Kudos to YJ and Jesters for kicking it off.

YJ offense was meh. Their goals consisted of free positions and transition. The set offense was handled by the Jesters. Good game Jesters controlled the game with their midfield over the YJ middies.

Surprised they went starting in with their excuses! Face it, team is not anything special, even with all the "superstar" additions. Good team, but no better than the other good LI teams, which Jesters are one of!

Wow! Somebody needs a cocktail! Why so angry? And what exactly are you outraged about? Seems like all the posts I read praised the Jesters, who are greatly improved. Good for them, and for LI girls lax. YJ has been bragging about how great they are/will be for years. They are a good team, but not ahead of several others, which they somehow think they deserve to be due to the club legacy. They would do best being humble and admit that they are in the same league as TG, Legacy (who just beat Grizzlies), and now Jesters. Seems like you’re lashing out at TG? They did win the Mid-Atlantic last summer, even with several girls hurt? Yes. All teams have to deal with injuries, and unfortunately no team will ever be completely healthy. You should focus on the great competitive teams LI has in this age group!

Let’s keep the local teams playing. I challenge the club directors to put aside their egos and paranoia. CR and JC ripped the band aid off and guess what ? The sun still rise the next day. The teams are set they won’t be changing anymore. In 14 months the top players on all our LI teams will be committing. Why can’t we help the local talent continue to improve by having the best teams play regular games. We don’t have to travel. It’s $100 for refs. I know parents will gladly chip in 5$ each once a week for a pick up game. We have 4 weeks left. Whose next? Legacy V Jesters , YJ V TG, what have you. Empire, Liberty.

Actually 2 girls took the draw for legacy and yes draw control is important, but legacy tends to turn the ball over so much anyway. What was impressive was their defense holding MD to 4 goals and outstanding goalie play.

wow the friends and family plan finally started to crack disaster...

It doesn't matter. The YJ girls will get the first and best commitments. Congrats to the first 2022 commit!

Hahahahaha, even CR is worried about this group. Aside from a couple, there will be no big scholarships. But keep drinking that kool-aid if it makes you feel better!

Huge conflict of interest. They are the evaluators of their own kids. Literally own daughters and literally coaches of their own club teams. Those other poor other kids that are not daughters of or play for 2 of evalutors lost their spots before hitting the field.

Defense and goalie play was excellent for sure but it was a team effort. Everyone showed up. Great team effort and team win.

Same old same old or were there obvious restrictions?

No obvious restrictions. Game rules were the same. Everyone was supposed to have a mask with them if social distancing wasn't possible but saw very few people wearing them. Obviously no team tents or anything so the girls mostly sat in cars in A/C between games.

Legacy is a solid team, keep in mind their best players left YJ for that program. Now they will be making UA over the friends and family! Love it!

Nobody that left YJ for Legacy would start on YJ's team. Legacy is a distant 3rd behind both YJ and TG.

Is that the same Legacy team that tied SJS select and scored 2 goals against Dewlax in a 4-2 loss? Did the UA girl who single handily beat M&D play?

The SJS tie was caused completely by one butt-hurt official who wasn't going to stop until SJS scored a goal. First, he unjustly ejects one of the Legacy coaches and gives Legacy a 2 man down penalty. Legacy gets the 2 men down penalty kill ending with a save. The same official then gives SJS a free position. Goalie saves it again. Then he gives them another free position, the shot goes in and the game ends a minute later. SJS is a good team and the game could have gone either way on any given day. But the tie on Sunday was 100% caused by the official being angry and reffing the score to make a point.

The wheels came off the bus on the Dewlax game. Then, the bus crashed into a tree, caught fire, and tumbled off a cliff to sink to the bottom of the ocean.

Even if the ref was biased. Legacy claims to have top talent that will be making UA in place YJ girls. Legacy should have been able to score more than 6 goals against SJS and against Dewlax 2 goals is really sad. YJ and TG offenses are exceptional.

An exceptional offense should be able to score more than 10 goals on the Jesters.

The coaching staffs do not pick the team. Sounds good but that’s the facts. There’s a 1/2 dozen outside evaluators at each tryout. In this case the players you are whining about happen to be the strongest players in the group. Find another excuse to be a hater. This LI team will do well at UA. Very talented pool to pick 23 from. Great for the Island. Please have some hometown pride and wish them all well.

I love it. Legacy leaves LI to play top competition while YJ parents all sit home, fuming on BOTC, licking their wounds from their "talent to torch" getting torched by Jesters and trying to save some face by spewing vitriol about UA this or that.

How about this? I won't be taking my daughter to UA tryouts. First, this year is a sham and they're going to just take your tryout money and have no tournament. Bet on it. Second, I wouldn't let Becky Thorn near my daughter for fear that her stupidity and laziness might be as contagious as COVID-19.

This is great! 4 solid teams in the age group. This is as it should be !
Legacy, Jesters , TG, YJ. I can hear the nervousness in the snarky comments. This is the beauty of a competitive playing field. Let’s have some more games. Jesters played YJ last week to a 1 goal win. No one saying they werent the better team that day. There are lots of days. It’s up to you people. The parents need to ask for more. Demand it of your club.

Yes, my daughter plays for TG. Sometimes we look great, and at other times we haven't been able to get it together. Seems about the same for the other big 4. I do believe any other these teams could beat each other one day and lose the next. Maybe time to stop beating chests like the other poster suggested and do whats best for the girls. Play lacrosse!! Many will play together in college, time for the parents to calm down!

It's only the YJ DeBlasio/Dumpster-Fire team that needs to settle down. They've been yapping and not doing for 5 long years. Its no wonder why people think they're stunads. Instead of burning talent, they should burn vocal cords and keyboards.

Have to agree. That team needs to come to grips that they are not the typical YJ dominance we have seen from other YJ teams. That team has been a mess from day one. Reason many split. I’m sure the YJ organization will continue to be tops on LI, just not for this group. So if those parents can get off their high horse, would be nice!

Legit question about the Brookhaven Bandits. We are from the Eastern end and looking for a tryout possibly for our 2023 daughter. What’s the level and are the players on this team on other club teams too? What is the commitment level. And when are tryouts ?
Thank you in advance.

Thank you in advance.

If this is current, it looks like the 2023 team is full. Contact info is included in the link and they are also on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

detest on YJ 23 all you want, but they been together for less than a year and dominated teams in the fall... Yes they lost a scrimmage by 1 goal to Jesters. I wouldn't bet on that happening again. I heard they scrimmaged the 21 Rose team the other night and did very well. That Rose team has 22 top D1 commits. Nobody is saying they would beat them in a real game, but they did beat them in a scrimmage the other night. That team will have some road bumps with chemistry but the talent from top to bottom is the best there is for 2023. If you say that's wrong then you have no clue about lacrosse. Just look at the talent up and down that roster. You will most likely see 8 of them on the UA command roster in a couple weeks. Good luck to all the girls at tryouts,and even if they don't have the actual tourney, the competition to the tryout is worth the fee. Let's get some more scrimmages/games for this age locally on long island.

Thanks YJ daddy. You heard about the scrimmage ...

We never said the girls aren’t talented. We said the team doesn’t win, the coach stinks and the parents are annoying - and quite dense.

The word “scrimmage” suggests it was less than it was. The game was played with fully paid and accredited refs who officiated using all rules and regulations to date. The game was full length, was filmed, and even a yellow card was given to the Jesters top player. Nice game all around. Where are TG and Legacy with scheduling games?

8 YJ UA girls is due their coach being the UA coach. Jesters beat all those UA players end of story. Dominated the Grizzlies in the fall it was a tie.

You did not beat the 2021 Rose team, you beat the players that were able to show-up to practice. You have the entire team there and you know the result. You now have other YJ teams cheering against you now. Clown show...

There has always been snickering with the 23 YJ team, but it was made worse the past few months with the "Talent to Torch" (One of my all-time favorite statements) and the "best team on the island" talk because of the merger. Now we get the "that won't happen again" statement.

When a team needs a merger to be good there has to be something majorly wrong in the first place. Chemistry and coaching is paramount and this team has a long way to go (from a 23 parent).

I’m sure the YJ organization will continue to be tops on LI, just not for this group. So if those parents can get off their high horse, would be nice!


detest on YJ 23 all you want, but they been together for less than a year and dominated teams in the fall... Yes they lost a scrimmage by 1 goal to Jesters. I wouldn't bet on that happening again. I heard they scrimmaged the 21 Rose team the other night and did very well. That Rose team has 22 top D1 commits. Nobody is saying they would beat them in a real game, but they did beat them in a scrimmage the other night. That team will have some road bumps with chemistry but the talent from top to bottom is the best there is for 2023. If you say that's wrong then you have no clue about lacrosse. Just look at the talent up and down that roster. You will most likely see 8 of them on the UA command roster in a couple weeks. Good luck to all the girls at tryouts,and even if they don't have the actual tourney, the competition to the tryout is worth the fee. Let's get some more scrimmages/games for this age locally on long island.

Beating Rose’s team is big win for the 23 team and at the same time very embarrassing to the 2021 team.

Legacy, Jesters , TG, YJ. I can hear the nervousness in the snarky comments. This is the beauty of a competitive playing field. Let’s have some more games. Jesters played YJ last week to a 1 goal win. No one saying they werent the better team that day. There are lots of days. It’s up to you people. The parents need to ask for more. Demand it of your club.

Yes, my daughter plays for TG. Sometimes we look great, and at other times we haven't been able to get it together. Seems about the same for the other big 4. I do believe any other these teams could beat each other one day and lose the next. Maybe time to stop beating chests like the other poster suggested and do whats best for the girls. Play lacrosse!! Many will play together in college, time for the parents to calm down!

This is so refreshing and correct. Thank you!

Went to another mid week matchup tonite. Brookhaven Bandits VS.Jesters. Another actual game. No hassle. No tolls or bridges. Got a field, couple of refs. Was great. More please.

Who won Jesters / Bandits game?
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2023-9th Grade Fall 2019/Summer 2020 - 07/28/20 07:07 AM
I watched the Jesters 23 team play Bandits under the lights on the turf at Seamans Neck Park. Although the Jesters dominated the game with a
16 - 3 win, its nice to see teams organizing games here on LI. Jesters seem to be the only team making that happen. Why can't more clubs do this? Is it true Jesters are playing Legacy next?

That will change. Legacy VS Jesters can happen at home. Silly to travel to PA and not play OOS teams.
