My sons 2026 team played 1 game against a different program this summer. Is that consistent with the other 2026 programs?

That is not consistent with other 2026 teams and hopefully your coach/club can find you a bunch more games. I guess it depends where you live, but all the MD teams have played or are playing multiple tourneys with varied opponents.

Our team has played 5 games against other teams from the tristate. I agree with above poster, hopefully your club can secure some games for your team. Good luck!

Looks like tryouts will be happening this year for some clubs.

91 and legacy are both holding “new player” evaluations. If you contact express they will invite you down to practice with the team and get a look

Most clubs are holding “new player evaluations”. For many of the bigger clubs this is just to fill the roster of their b and c teams. The virus has really exposed how much these clubs don’t give a garbage about their B teams. As a result their will be a lot of turnover on these teams

I disagree. If your son is good enough, any top team will accommodate him. Especially if they are lacking talent in certain positions. Definitely look to attend other tryouts if you are unhappy with your current situation.

Oh I agree. If a kid is a super stud a top team will accommodate him. But in most cases that kids parents have already been in touch with the club. The tryout is a formality, if they even come at all. The B and C team rosters of the bigger clubs are very light.

That I’m not sure of. 24 kids on sideline. 4 goalies. 11
On the field. I watched them vs orange storm. I didn’t see to many substitutions

Let me just set the record straight here for some of the misinformation......regardless of how many players are on the sidelines the first and second lines for express got equal time . I was there and see it myself . 91 got a proper beat down plain and simple . And speaking of substitutions....I also have a friend with a son who is on 91 and he got a total of 3 minutes if the game , father was fuming. So you were saying ? Take a loss like a man,stop making excuses that are typical to 91 dads.....and just for the record express also beat down 91 team a few weeks earlier , so not a fluke . The 91 team is just not very good .

I’m not a 91 dad. I just watched the game. The express team was very good and yes dominated 91. I was just suprised how many kids were on the sidelines. If your happy with the program than that’s great.

So many kids on the sidelines b/c they had the AA and A team (or A & B depending on how you look at it) there. All the kids got playing time. Obviously the AA played the majority though.

I know of teams that bring 22 kids and there are still kids that don't get playing time at all ....FACT. So if someone carries 25 or 55 and the starters only play or the starters and second line okay what's the difference and who cares .....like has been stated before on this thread ....people have choices . Do what's best for you but no need to go on here and say " I counted 85 kids on the sidelines " congratulations you know how to count .

I think you would agree 40 kids on a team for a tourney is a little out of the ordinary. The team (roster and all) crushed everyone.

I've had to listen to a someone complaining recently about their kid's situation. And it got me thinking about what attributes separate and AA player from B from C, etc.

Think Madden rankings. AA players will be high in most of these:
size
strength
speed / athleticism
lacrosse iq
intensity / competitiveness / aggression
stick skills (cradling, shooting, gbs)

B players might be low in 1 or 2 of those areas, but high in the rest. etc.

What say you? Not to stir the pot. But helpful in trying to calmly/diplomatically/tactfully trying to explain to other why their kid didn't make x team.

You obviously have never been to the WSYL. It is the best run lacrosse event anywhere and the highlight of their youth sports career. Worth every Penney. And it is a true on age tourney that bands post-pubescent “man” cheaters, that are a year or even two years older than they are suppose to be, from using that advantage against pre-pubescent boys”.

WSYL seems to be trending in a great direction the last few years. Enjoy your time out there. Don't let all the parents on the ranked teams around here that play each other in their own backyards give you any guff. Money well spent!

I went with my older boy. An unbelievable experience! It really can’t be compared to anything else. It’s the iconic event in youth lacrosse. Hopefully your sons team will qualify. Then sit back and prepare to be amazed!

Unless of course, your son is a holdback on a holdback team, then, by all means, continue with the lame rhetoric/excuses... since Jake Steinfeld doesn’t allow cheaters.

I am not a holdback complainer as they are allowed, so be it. That being said, it would be cool if there were more age group tourneys. I know some parts of the country have spring on age leagues and club obv grade based running concurrently. For my son being an on age 2026, it’s fun for him to play with different kids for that reason.

Clearly Express is the favorite. 91 and Igloo would probably qualify. I wouldn't be surprised if Express had 2 teams qualify. Hard to tell what teams are age eligible. We shall see.

Picking up steam?? Bro, I went last year and EVERY SINGLE top team in the country was there, and a bunch didn’t even get through the gauntlet known as the north qualifier. The only teams that don’t do it are the ones that can’t, since their team is 100% dependent upon ineligible holdbacks. MD teams are notorious for this. Winning the WSYL (or just doing well) is a huge bonanza for the clubs, which translates to big time bottom line cash for the clubs, that costs the clubs ZERO! Of course every top club is going to be there, IF they qualify based on the age requirement. The WSYL is not “picking up steam”. It IS the freight train of youth lacrosse! All aboard!!

Club lacrosse at the elite level is a very dirty business. Win at all costs and build the brand into an empire. The formula: Take kids that are a year or two older, that are post pubescent men and play on age pre pubescent little boys. Great concept! Bunch of db clubs. Guess what happens in 8th grade and later?? Most on age kids hit their growth spurt during the 8th grade. By spring of that year, those tiny little on age kids are no longer tiny. They grew 6 inches and put on 40 pounds of muscle., in that one year alone. Trust me. It’s coming! Meanwhile the post pubescent cheater holdback hasnt grown since 6th grade. The on age kid is as big or bigger than the holdbacks, and he’s a better lacrosse player.

EVERYTHING changes the spring of 8th grade. Holdback teams that use to dominate no longer do. They struggle to compete, against players they use to dominate. They are exposed for what they have always been. Substandard lacrosse players, who are sons of substandard lacrosse dads. You never hear about them, but this is the result for the great majority of holdbacks.

So, all you dads and moms out there of on age kids, be patient. Your sons day is coming, and soon!

I’m not your pal. And I touched quite a nerve if that isn’t you.

Please quote those comments. I do not recall seeing a single post on this thread like that from a 91 parent this year.

And if you’re not the guy in the blue hat, you know exactly who I’m talking about. Much more pathetic than any blinged out gear. Can’t wait till CoachC finds a new toy and your son is scrambling for a team. Oh wait.....you’ll just stay and keep paying all the fees even though your boy doesn’t step on the field anymore. CoachC is banking on it.......literally.

Please stop all of the nonsense. Express and 91 are clearly the top 2 L.I. Teams heading into the WSYL, regardless of "holdbacks" etc.. Hopefully those teams will get meaningful competition and grow this Fall. Express 2026 has the 1 player that nobody else has so stop talking about 50 kids on their roster. When you win 90% plus face-offs and put the ball in play everyone on that team is better. Until teams learn to deal with it and/or stop it.... Express will win and that's the reality of it. Don't sit here and throw stones at Express. People are happy here and they should be. If you're not happy or disgruntled urge your club to get better and if they won't, make good decisions for your child, and let them play. Either way there are plenty of club lacrosse options out there. Do right by your kid, and not your ego!

Yes, I completely agree with you. Just to be clear, it was the above poster from Express who came on here and started disparaging 91 on a typically civil 2026 thread.

I would say express is clearly the best team. 2nd is a tossup between 91 and igloo. Coach C was a smart businessman by doing his “super team “. It made a a lot of kids sign up because the 2 teams practice together. As a result they have enough kids to field 3 teams. 91 barely has enough kids to field a 2nd team. 91 has gotten so out of control with daddy ball. 26 team has 5 dad coaches. Go look at there other teams. Machine has 6 dad coaches. The list goes on and on. I get there wil be dad coaches. But for most teams have 5-6 or them.....it only leads to problems

Club lacrosse at the elite level is a very dirty business. Win at all costs and build the brand into an empire. The formula: Take kids that are a year or two older, that are post pubescent men and play on age pre pubescent little boys. Great concept! Bunch of db clubs. Guess what happens in 8th grade and later?? Most on age kids hit their growth spurt during the 8th grade. By spring of that year, those tiny little on age kids are no longer tiny. They grew 6 inches and put on 40 pounds of muscle., in that one year alone. Trust me. It’s coming! Meanwhile the post pubescent cheater holdback hasnt grown since 6th grade. The on age kid is as big or bigger than the holdbacks, and he’s a better lacrosse player.

EVERYTHING changes the spring of 8th grade. Holdback teams that use to dominate no longer do. They struggle to compete, against players they use to dominate. They are exposed for what they have always been. Substandard lacrosse players, who are sons of substandard lacrosse dads. You never hear about them, but this is the result for the great majority of holdbacks.

So, all you dads and moms out there of on age kids, be patient. Your sons day is coming, and soon!

Why exactly do things change in the spring of 8th grade?

I have coached many holdbacks and even more on age and see little advantage to college placement in the long run. Also have had many more behavioral issues from later grade holdbacks (not ones who started K or Pre-K late necessarily...that is a different scenario).

The above is harsh and the ramblings of a delusional parent trying to justify the inability of their son to compete in sports. Folks do not complain about a kid who was born in May who struggles to walk and chew gum at the same time while playing in the neighborhood rec league. No, the focus of the holdback derangement syndrome is focused on the same aged kid who happens to be 6” taller then other kids his age (thanks mom and dad for the tall gene), is a natural athlete that is equally strong with stick in his left or right hand that is also self driven and is on a wall or cage 5 days per week.

According to what you said it is only a matter of time that the later “substandard lacrosse player” is exposed and suffers complete collapse as all the other kids who, as a youth, lack one, some or all of the skills needed to shine in the game majestically rise to become the dominate player. Yes all kids will grow and improve. This fact does not equate to the collapse of the kid who is a stand out at 11 or 12 or him being exposed as being substandard.

As a long time coach who tries to build teams with known or data driven factors I would be inclined to bet on a kid in 7th grade who runs faster then most of his peers, is 5’9” with a mom who stands say at 5’8”, can manage his stick like a magician and shoots left or right at 70moh+ then a kid who is 5’3” and lacks a few of the skills needed to play the game at a high level.

Not a substandard lacrosse dad.... just saying...

I assume the OP didn't literally mean everything changes. I am also a longtime coach and I think almost everything other coach and parent on here understands that you are going to take the bigger, stronger, faster kid with stick skills over the other 5'3" player you described. What I think is important though is that if your on-age kid is 5'3" with stick skills and speed but hasn't yet hit his growth spurt to have the size and strength, don't give up as if/when the size/strength comes a year later, he will catch up. Also is you have an on-age kid who is 5'9" 150 lbs, but is new to the game and willing to work, your son can catch up in the stick skills dept if he puts in the time and effort. I've had many holdbacks over the years who did make a top team as they were a year older, but never have I nor would I suggest a parent hold a kid back purely for lax...once you get to high school ages things tend to even out so you need to do what's best for your boy in the non-lax world. Also, parents going through this process the first time, don't let people convince you colleges only want holdbacks. I have many college coaches who prefer the highly skilled 17 yr old with potential over the 20 yr old holdback PG who has has hit their peak and won't listen to coaching at the college level.

Coach, I agree with everything you just wrote. The original poster insinuated that “the holdback would be exposed as a sub-standard player” as he entered high school. All kids will grow and develop. The 5’3” kid will grow and get better and many will, as you wrote, catch up and become great players. The point I was trying to make is that this outcome does not necessarily negate the talent or effort of the kid who was more dominate in middle school there by exposing him as being substandard.

If I could wave a magic wand and get a wish related to this board I would wish that every parent embrace middle school lacrosse as a time for their kids to learn, develops and grow. Holdbacks or no, the kids with the athleticism and passion for the game will go the furthest in the game. In the meantime let’s stop beating up programs and kids for where they are in their development as people and players.

Can I get an amen to that?

Can someone please give a description of a substandard lacrosse Dad?
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2026-7th Grade Fall 2020/Summer 2021 - 08/28/20 02:45 PM
substandard lacrosse dad: (noun) 1. description used by a parent or guardian of a child that plays the sport of lacrosse to describe the parent or guardian of another child who is visibly better at lacrosse then their child. (adverb) 2. a term often used by parents suffering from acute low self-worth lacrosse derangement syndrome.

“That big, fast kid who scored 3 goals in the first half against my son playing pole has only exposed that he has a substandard lacrosse dad”

“If only my son could compete against that kid I would feel better about myself and could stop using the substandard lacrosse dad excuse to make me feel better.”

Very well done. It needs to be included in the sports regular vernacular in the same way phrases like crease crank and yard sale are used. Maybe shorten it to SLD. It could be used as follows: “Man that kid is really quick and can consistently ring the top shelf. Clearly the product of good coaches and an SLD.”

Yes, an SLD is an ironic/satirical description. A regular lax dad probably peaked in high school and lives vicariously through his son. The SLD is a normal, rational person whose son id really good at lax but both he and his son have other things going on in their life so they frustrate the typical lax dad.

The rebels are not great at this age. They lose to the better B teams and beat that crappy B teams I just saw they plan on having an a and b team for this age......which seems crazy. Mooselax was a pretty decent B team couple years ago. Not sure how this will be this upcoming year. They didn’t play any tournaments this summer because of Covid

Rebels were not good at all when they started 2 years ago, but have gotten considerably better consistently. New coaching addition from same coach that runs their 22 team, which is really really good. Should surprise some people this year.

Nice, I now aspire to be called an SLD. It is hilarious when dad’s on my son’s team Ask me why I’m not more into the game. They have no clue that screaming and yelling during games never helps your kid and I’d somewhere from indifferent to detrimental to their development.

Empire on there already.

365 is a Poughkeepsie team

24 and Hitman have 2026 teams? I've never ever seen them anywhere.

Lockjaw makes it 24.

I tried to exclude town travel besides GC and CSH.

Yes, that list can get endless. I see the Rams and Roar at more tournaments than the rest. Debatable to include them on here.

You dont need to do that, peoples heads explode. But there is always movement of the upper teams 91 igloo and express, stealing the others developed players, and some times you get the dissatisfied guy from the top three that moves down to find another team. Interesting how parents thought processes are.

The big clubs expect to pay 4K for top teams, over 3k for B teams. The smaller clubs expect anywhere from 2500-3500. Some clubs are upping the price this year for the World Series of lacrosse qualifier.

Makes no sense...the only appeal is that it is age based, not grade, so why don't other promoters just run some age based tournaments?

I know a family who has multiple kids playing travel lacrosse for many years. One of their kids went to the WSYL and they said it was an awesome experience and worth every penny. A great vacation for the family and a youth lacrosse experience unlike any other they had seen. Just like anything else, if you don't want to do it, then don't do it.

As for the comment that the WSYL doesn't really matter ... do any youth lacrosse tournaments "matter"?

Let’s try to be fair but you can get over 5k fast even if you watch your Airfare for two, hotel for a minimum of 6 nights, car rental, new team gear for the event.

Also food... add the wife and a kid or two more and it’s close enough to $10k

Should definitely be interesting, if they can get back to regular play (inlcuding face offs). Express has a large group of kids in this age group.

I am not from New York, but I can say every year I take time to read the same Welles Crowther story and it makes me emotional. Through all the BS of lax, if this sport can give our kids the ability to react like that and be a true hero, I will take that over all the goals, assists and defense in the world.

Thats why i think if they could run effectively quality Age based tournaments with Credibility. People would have a much better experience. You would see that teams would not become dominant just based on having an older couple of kids. You might actually appreciate the coaching that kids are getting.

Express has 2-3 really good players that separate them. The rest are fine but at the same level as kids on many of these other "B" teams (Legacy, Outlaws, S2S, LILC).

I agree with this. But Igloo is in the same class as the 2nd tier teams. 91 used to be pretty even with Express. But I watched Express crush 91 in Jersey over the summer. The game wasn’t even close. I’ve noticed a lot of these top teams seem to avoid each other at all costs.

How can you say that? The top 4 played each other multiple times in the past year. When and where was that LIE/91 game in NJ? They played twice this summer both times in CT.

Your kid obviously doesn't play for either team then. They played at LaxFest in Tinton Falls. I believe it was mid august. You can easily look it up on tourney machine. Express dominated that game. If they played each other all summer what were some of the results?

My son plays for one of the teams. Lax Fest was in Bradford CT, Express won, it was the last game of the season. They also had a play day at Darien HS earlier in the summer, Express won. Lax Fest started as a blowout then 91 made it closer. Darien HS game was closer game. Don't say I watched in NJ when you didn't. That's the problem with this site, so much fake news. Any other questions?

why does BOTC change links to "USCL.com" to "uscl.com?" Is there some animonsity there? Anyway...

Lax Fest BOYS Igloo (2026) 3 6 LI Express Haugen (2026)
Lax Fest BOYS LI Express Haugen (2026) 9 3 Team 91 LI Machine (2027)
Lax Fest BOYS LI Express Haugen (2026) 11 6 Team 91 LI Orange Storm (2026)

Is Orange Storm not the top team for 91? Clearly they lost 11-6 to Express at Lax Fest

Clearly this dude watched tourneymachine and not an actual game. Yes, Lax Fest was played in Tinton Falls for some ages, but the 2026s played in N. Branford, CT.

I’m not an express dad. But Laxfest game was not close. Express blew them out early and then they put the 3rd and 4th string kids in.

Express dominated at the face-off in August. Take away the face-off and it is a tight game. It will come back around. Just wait.

Take away the face off ? Lol.....right . Take away this and take away that . Sounds like a dollar and a dream commercial. You're not serious with that statement are you . The game is the game ........find a way to win you don't come on here and say " take away the face off and it's a tighter game " . Who does that ?

I bet if one team plays without a goalie it will be a blowout.

#CmonMan "take away the face-off" is a bad take. Take away the other teams goalie, and it's easier to score too. You compete with the team on the field that's why the games are played. It's such a weak argument when anyone says some version of "Yeah, but...." Ok but you didn't have a strong face-off. How did your team ride then? Great way to neutralize a good FO guy? Ride better, and battle for ground balls. It doensn't matter if you win 20 faceoffs if the same team has 25 turnovers.

Agreed. That’s just a silly statement. You could pretty much make it any time you lose a game.

Take away the stud attack man and it’s a different game

Take away the stud goalie and it’s a different game.

Stop it. You’ve been beaten by express all summer. They are clearly better than 91 this age group

Please stop crying over different age cutoffs in different states/areas. Lax reality is that parents hold back their kids all over the country. If your boy can't compete with kids 4 months older due to Sep 1st vs. Jan 1st school ages then maybe he should stick to soccer where its birth year.

No dog in this hunt but always interesting to see the low class Hawks rhetoric in everything they say and do. As the wins dry up there will be an implosion.Other teams enjoy being together and the experience. Question is where do the kids leave to?

Personally I'd love to see the Hawks implode, but I think its too early to predict that happening. They are still the best 2026 squad in the country although hopefully we see deeper tournaments soon with all the top teams competing against each other.

Hawks won’t play in WSYL, it is a waste of time and money. Hawks are clearly #1 in the country, they don’t need to travel all over the country to prove that.

WSYL age cutoff is Sept 1st, same as schools in Maryland (and any other area who logically has an age cutoff inline with when schools start the year). We have no interest in wasting money to fly across the country and play the same teams we do on the East Coast.

WSYL is in Maryland this year. Interesting. Will it lose it's luster without the rocky mountain backdrop? Or is the new back drop the md holdbacks standing on the sidelines, not able to play?

My guess is that the top 15 to 20 teams according to Us Club Lax all have hold backs and wouldn't be participating. The WSYL is more of a B team championship, so nobody really cares that much.

OK Chip. We will even have a couple of kids from the 2025 team playing at the WSYL that have birthdays prior to Sept 1. So your 2026 holdbacks are even older than some of our 2025's. Come on Chip, the WSYL is in MD this year, bring your age appropriate team to it, get spanked and you can take your 2028 holdback to the Green Turtle after.

Any team who competes there would be age appropriate. Tons of teams have a few holdbacks who they would just leave off the squad for this if they want to play.

Your 12 year old doesn't care about the competition, he just want to play lax and have fun. YOU want him to platy against the Hawks so that if his team wins, YOU can brag to your buddies that your boy is a stud or more likely a role player on a really good team.

FACT: No top team is going to WSYL. WSYL will be an assembly of B teams showcasing dropped balls, loose ball mosh pits and bad coaching. Keep your money and use your time on something more worthwhile.

Not actually true, but know what you're saying. Much better overall comp at NAL and NLF. My son is on age as a March 2008, but I much rather see him face the top 0226 teams vs. the ones that just fit the age requirement. Are you people going to wait until your boy is a senior in HS to let hm play varsity to avoid older players?

The older they get the age difference makes less of a difference.2025, 2026, 2027 still a big difference in the one year.

I truly hope you show. Win or lose...My kid wants to play the against best.

Time to put up, or shut up.
Your 12 year old doesn't care about the competition, he just want to play lax and have fun. YOU want him to platy against the Hawks so that if his team wins, YOU can brag to your buddies that your boy is a stud or more likely a role player on a really good team.


Lame. Put up or shut up!

With WSYL now in MD, now is the chance to prove it’s a B tournament.

More importantly, no more will there be the need to battle the holdback arguments...Don’t you want that to go away? Trust me, all on age kids do!

No more excuses bub...Time to put up or shut up.

True, but if your son has any chance of playing against seniors as a freshman or even soph, he better get used to playing against 7th graders who are a few months older than him without daddy protecting him.

Get a grip. There is only one age based tournament a year, and you can have all the rest.

All of this banter is pointless, the top teams are not going to build specials teams just for this silly tournament. It does not make any economical or logical sense. The US club lax has already identified the top teams. It is what it is, sorry that your team is at the bottom of the list.

The Express team is a better team. Everyone likes to make excuses, but in the end they are just better at this age. They have 3 or 4 kids on that team that are really good players. Their faceoff kid is lights out and they have a pole and an attack that are light years ahead of anyone at this current age. Good for them someone has to win !!

Everyone knows about the older kids on those teams and there is nothing you can do about it. Long Island is watered down! If there was only one program on LI and you chose the best for that team they would beat all of those teams. If the clubs got together and put an All Star team picked by coaches without kids on the team that team would be very competitive all over the country. That will never happen because the owners detest each other and would lose money. So until then Older teams like the ones mentioned will dominate.

Don't the non-Long Island teams have other teams in their area competing for talent too? Are their areas as big and populated as Nassau & Suffolk?

There is no doubt the Long Island teams are excellent. Great skills and maybe impressive the kids play really hard. I'm not from LI but my son is on a strong team. I think he might be struggling to keep up. He's small but December b-day so on the older side. I am really focused on him having a good experience (fun), getting better and getting high school ready. Probably not worth spending a significant amount of time arguing over who is better. The Hawks are probably excellent too.

Keep in mind - there are 2 ways for club teams to get better. 1. develop the kids on the team. 2. replace the kids on the team with better players.

There is a third way...hold them back in school to be a year older!

This is just so dense. One year age differences pre-HS are hugely determinative in terms of speed, strength, quickness, hand-eye, sports IQ, aggressiveness, etc. You seem to admit this. But then you say that a kid needs to play against older kids pre-HS in order to be able to play against older kids at the varsity level. This is just simply made up by you and there is zero evidence that this is true. Do you think any coach would say to a Freshman "you are my third best attackman, but because you didn't play against older kids when you were 12 I am putting you on JV"? And no, you don't have to play against older kids as a 12 year old to prepare for Varsity lacrosse. That is just silly. Its like saying I need to take my 13 yo to an empty parking lot to practice driving so he will be ready to drive when he is 16, or that I will need my 8 year to work on his calculus so that he will be ready for HS math.

And by the way, in an age based youth system, you can always have your kid play up if you, as a parent, thing he needs to play against older kids.

There are lots of teams in the Hawks geographic area but for a mom to feel really important; she needs to have a Hawks sticker on the window of hew Mercedes SUV (or other minivan if they don't want to start). (Those stickers cost like $2500.00 and they throw in some cool sweats for your son, too.) Otherwise its like you are not really playing lacrosse and there was no point in having your kid fail a grade in middle school. In Long Island there are lots of great teams who each can win and they cannibalize each other, seeming less dominant. In Maryland everyone fights for second place at the 2026 level.

As far as the holdbacks I don't get the complaints. There is a 62 year old on my 45+ team and he does not seem to have any advantage over the younger guys. If anything the exemption guys (under 45) on the roster seem to have the advantage. I am actually thinking of moving some of our scooper's kids to the 7th grade team to see if the pattern holds up.

The same as any other kid and team. Really really upset as well as their parents. And then they move on to the next tournament. Not sure the answer you are looking for.

From a totally impartial observer who played these teams the last few years. Sweetlax is very good. Express is a dumpster fire of epic proportions (whos excuse to everything is hold backs) and legacy goes up and down but is not very good.

No no no, 16 are holdbacks, the other 5 are super double secret hold backs. I swear to God, I heard an 11 year old say it on the field after losing to them so there is no way that could be false. It has nothing to do with hard work, just the ages!

Yes, the team was built to be able to participate in age based tourneys. The big kid everyone loves to call a holdback is a September 2007, so he is on age in Pennsylvania. Sorry he lives in an area that logically aligns school age with beginning of school year.

I love the way you all talk about not having holdbacks and then reclass your kids to repeat 8th or 9th grade at private schools. Now that Inside Lacrosse is publishing the 2022 Birthdays it will all be there for us to see the truth about NY/LI.

Sweetlax has only lost 1 game since the team was assembled in the fall and that was to the Hawks at the North American this summer. Ultimately, this will get settled on the field in the coming months.

Well all the teams in it are competitive with each other, I do like the tournaments but kids are burnt out, and to be honest, I have other things to do during the day other kids etc, so 1 regular timed game in a way is fine.

I know express has an insane faceoff kid. Other than that, what’s the big difference between these 2 teams that makes express dominate 91? Goalie? Defense? Attack?

In my opinion it’s not one thing it’s everything. Coaching style, speed and most of all unselfish play and ball movement. Kids on express learn how to play together and not get stuck in “plays”. They fly and move and help each other out . Fun to watch.

Express thinks every team outside of New York that completely dismantles them is full of hold backs. So they think when they get to WSYL none of these teams will be there. The real truth is they are a middling B level team that is good on long Island but gets crushed outside of it. It's going to be a long WSYL for those parents

You have no idea what you're talking about . The express team just this past weekend dismantled team 91 , score was 12-4. Then went to jersey and embarrassed the tigers 10-1. Tigers are one of the top teams in this age bracket . And no they have never played in a B bracket . Nice try though .

I know express has an insane faceoff kid. Other than that, what’s the big difference between these 2 teams that makes express dominate 91? Goalie? Defense? Attack?

After watching a few of their games recently, the ball only makes it to their defensive end about 10% of the time.

At NAL you played in the Blue division against the Black Division lost to FCA which was the B bracket

Red and Silver were your A brackets and Sweetlax lost to Hawks

Express thinks every team outside of New York that completely dismantles them is full of hold backs. So they think when they get to WSYL none of these teams will be there. The real truth is they are a middling B level team that is good on long Island but gets crushed outside of it. It's going to be a long WSYL for those parents

You sound like you know...when was the last time they got crushed?

NAL had a clear A and B setup, but did not label them that way to keep clubs happy. Black (FCA, BLC, Crabs and Top Caliber) and Blue (Express, Legacy, Express North and LE) made up what would be the B division. The A division was Red (Sweetlax, BBL, Madlax and Looneys) and Silver (Hawks, Tigers, Towerman and Prime Time). Express lost the B title to FCA and Hawks beat Sweetlax for the A title.

They played the B bracket at NAL. Until you can step up and play with the best teams in your own state, let alone other states. I do believe Sweetlax was in the Championship of that, then shut up.

There will be multiple MD teams this year, yes, we know about the birth certificates. We also know that Express will search all of Long Island and beyond for additional players for the WSYL team. The tough task will be getting a roster with no more than 23.

Getting a roster of 23 is easy...getting the other parents of the other 17 kids to keep paying while their son isn't even invited is the challenge.

You must not know the parents of the bottom half of that team, they will glad pay to say their boy is on the team and will even order some WSYL gear online while little Johnny sits at home instead of playing due to roster limit.

They did not. No one f rom the top 91 team tried out for LI Express. These are generally the same boys that have been together for a few years. There were definitely additions but not from other top programs. They have 3 teams for this age group. The top team has 28 boys. Certainly gonna be some pissed off parents when they cut the roster for the WSYL.

I was told by an Express parent that they plan to put 2 teams from LI in the qualifiers. Whether they have enough talent to spread to 2 teams remains to be seen. Their 2nd team at this age is decent but definitely not on the level as there top team. They would need a few top kids to make it to the WS.

Express has 3 teams at 2026 - LI Express, Express North and Jersey Express (Tribal). LI Express was Haugan. Decent team but carried by a great faceoff kid in Rob Johnson.

Express North (Schreiber) broke up a year ago and many players went to Primetime and a player to Towermen. But, Express North retooled with some reclass players from their 2025 team which broke up this year. These reclassed players made their 2026 team relevant again.

Jersey Express was created this year when Express acquired a good AA program in NJ called Tribal (side note: Express moving in on Leading Edge’s NJ territory... NLF 4 Life ). Those poor Tribal kids and coaches had no idea what hit them because that team was set to make a WS run on their own.

Now, LI Express Haugan has become LI Express CoachC and the best of that old team will merge with the best of Jersey Express and possibly Express North... but Express North might stay on their own.

Express CoachC is coming out hot as the front runners... but what teams are lurking in the shadows.

Let me start by saying you’re a complete fool for putting a child’s name in your post. I don’t care if it’s positive or negative, it’s wrong.

Secondly, your description of the teams isn’t even correct. They have 3 teams on LI alone at this age. They all practice together and the 1st & 2nd teams generally play in the same tournaments.

None of these teams are merging with a NJ team. Also, Express North is still a solid team.

So I guess Legacy truly considers themselves a B team now. They are the host of the Columbus Day tournament and they put their own Legacy Eels in the B bracket with Igloo and Express B teams and other B programs. Sad.. Used to be a competitive team. Or are they just getting pressure/complaints from parents about getting beat up vs A programs, so they want to try to win a B bracket tournament. Good for moral. I wouldn't be shocked if the top players from this team leave this season and definitely by next year (or there better be a merger plan to keep kids around).

Laughed so hard at the “new” ranking. My son’s team played in the Hershey Tournament in late July and was “placed” in the Tigers, Towerman, Sweetlax, Primetime, Hawks bracket. Express was conveniently placed in a much weaker bracket to allow them to dodge the real power teams of 26 lacrosse. Despite this effort to ease their path they lost their last game to a middle of the road team from MD. Also their was no crossover games between brackets to truly insulate them. Despite this “set-up” no one listed their weaker bracket as the B bracket so as to try to legitimize any success they might had had. To claim them 1 in the fake news “new ranking” is an insult to all the teams they dodged throughout the summer. Laughing too hard. 🤑

That is a very poor "photoshop" attempt. Hopefully you decide to spend money on your son's education instead of lacrosse as he will clearly need help.

Agree. Plus, it was an Express run event. I bet you Express collected money from 91 and not their parents. Express parents, were you asked to pay as well?

Express parents were not asked to pay not have we paid for any scrimmage or tournament. I see the need for you to compare but clearly 91 is a low class organization. Speaking of express , we have had 3 consecutive weeks of scrimmages and play days/tournaments already and have not paid one penny extra . Nice try though .

The big kid played a lot middie in the Express game. Assume it was because the Express FOGO was so good the Tigers wanted to get the young man more involved in the game. Do any teams have a FOGO that can compete the the Express FOGO - he's really good?

Based upon the limited amount of lacrosse I watched this summer I think a case can be made that the big kid on Tigers is the most dominate player in the 2026 class at this point in time. While similar arguments can be made that a few kid on Sweetlax, Express LI, Hawks and Prime Time truly dominate, the sheer height and weight of the Tiger middie make him something truly special.

91 dad, it was your parents that were complaining . So go take care of your own house , it’s a mess . For an organization to tell a team that they’re going to a scrimmage but have to pay for it is low class. Happens all the time at 91. Have a friend that plays for 91 and if a coach decides to go outside of “ my lacrosse tournaments “ to challenge the kids the parents have to pay for that too. All facts. Low class corporate parent

Ha,thanks dad. While he is certainly a very good player, I have seen a number of players that are more skilled than him who also have size and speed.

Very good player indeed, but we saw a kid this summer at NLF (we were just watching as my nephew plays for a MD team that was involved) on Big 4 HHH who was similar size to big Tigers player but seemed much faster and probably more skilled. They were not an impressive team but the one kid was a monster (could be a lot older, no idea on age).

The biggest difference between the two that Ive seen and both are very good is the kid form Big 4 H is unselfish and makes the pass when he gets doubled or tripled. I do feel bad for the Tigers kid with his dad on the sideline barking at the coaching staff. We saw that at NLF and NAL

I definitely agree on those points. I often wonder with players like that if they would be better or worse without the overbearing dad (probably indifferent, but that's no fun to assume). Most people think better off because of the obnoxiousness, but probably not always the case.

The tournaments that they have attempted so far in NY have stunk . Went to one a month ago and there were no face offs allowed and a guy walking around blowing a whistle if there was too much contact. Not sure why they even bother ,would gladly drive to jersey than put up with a PAL style tournament

The kid from HHH is the entire team. Last year they were a low level b team at best. Kid scored more goals in one game than entire team did all last summer at NLF and pretty much 80% of their goals this year. Imagine if he was at a program with actual talent development.

Wishful thinking. He is bigger, stronger and faster than most of these kids will become. There are a few athletically and genetically gifted kids, but they are few and far between out there. Interested to see what happens

I thought HHH was one of the best clubs up in PA? I know they have some older teams that are legit. I wasn’t impressed with the 2026 squad (outside of the obvious kid), but my older boys have faced some good HHH teams over the years.

I am involved with leagues ad tournaments all over and coached in PA after college, was down in MD for a few years and am now back home in LI and I'll say the PA teams tend to be different as they never have the depth that we do up here or down in MD. Lax is growing, but still not getting enough big time athletes in PA so teams are often based around one big kid who is physically dominant instead of a full squad of kids who are dangerous. That's the HHH team with their dominant oversized middie, that's Tigers with their man child attack/middie, that PA RoughRiders with their monster attackman, that's NXT with their huge overly padded middie and probably a few other PA teams that I don't know/haven't seen. They all rely so much on one player who is currently bigger/stronger/faster (or at least fast enough). The top teams up here and the top ones down in MD are just too deep for those teams. We can matchup one on one with the big kid and double when needed and then have an advantage at every other spot on the field.

No one here cares about PA teams. I have no doubt the kids you mentioned are beasts, but they are all probably summer/spring 2007 bdays at best pretending to be true 2026s.

Lax is growing, but still not getting enough big time athletes in PA so teams are often based around one big kid who is physically dominant instead of a full squad of kids who are dangerous. That's the HHH team with their dominant oversized middie, that's Tigers with their man child attack/middie, that PA RoughRiders with their monster attackman, that's NXT with their huge overly padded middie and probably a few other PA teams that I don't know/haven't seen. They all rely so much on one player who is currently bigger/stronger/faster (or at least fast enough). The top teams up here and the top ones down in MD are just too deep for those teams.

My nephew plays in MD for a strong club and my bro-in-law said he has played and/or seen HHH, PA RR and Tigers this past summer (no idea on NXT as he said they are more B level) and says none of the 3 big kids being referenced could possibly be true 2026s. He said all 3 look like they drove to the tourney which is no surprise given what I hear from the teams south of us.

Sweetlax is heading down to Philly for NXT Nightfall this weekend. Why are all the LI teams sitting at home and not playing? Very frustrating.

Agreed. The biggest problem is all these big clubs have their own tournament companies now. They make a lot less money by putting their teams in tournaments they don’t own. 91 is by far the worst when it comes to this

Agree. $3-4K as a "discounted" tuition due to COVID is obscene. All to travel to NJ and CT to play the same teams over and over. Insanity = doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. We complain and still pay to be on these "better" teams (i.e., 91, Express, Igloo) on LI because we think it will serve these kids better in the long run. Time to reevaluate lining these programs pockets. They're making out better than they did pre-COVID.

Absolutely correct . Dynamic is the worst offender. They put out about 20 tournaments per year (way too much) and then force their teams to play in them even when they're weak teams and brackets . When a coach decides he wants to take the team to a different tournament to face better competition the coach than has to go to the parents and ask them to pay for that tournament. Ridiculous. And more recently I have even heard that they even asked parents to pay for referee fees when they scrimmaged a team on long island . Awful .

Not sure about the other clubs but express has played every weekend for 4 straight weeks . When there hasn't been a tournament they have played at least two scrimmages per weekend and still going .

I’m not an express dad, and there’s plenty of people that complain about them. But at least they only run a few tournaments and not the absurdity of 91 and my lacrosse tournaments. This allows them to put there kids in competitive tournaments that they don’t own. Wonder if this is the reason why they are the dominate team (on Long Island ) at this age group ?

You hit the nail on the head . While there may be a lot of negative talk about express and I have heard them all . One thing I will tell you is that they actually seek out the best teams to play. For example last week they went to jersey and played the tigers from PA one if the best in the 2026 year . At express they feel that you only get better by playing the better teams . I know that 91 seems to donut differently and it's blatantly obvious that they play in their own tournaments where they control the brackets and face the weaker teams .

I get what you are saying about 91 getting stuck with own tourneys, but why is 91 MD getting to play in an NXT tourney this weekend and we are told we can’t on LI? PA is not on the travel restriction list which is why Sweetlax is going. The tourney isn’t on the “91 do not play list” as 91 MD is going, so why can’t we?

I may be wrong. But 91 Maryland is completely separate entity from 91 Long Island. As a result they are not tied to dynamic sports or my lacrosse tournaments. From what I understand 91 in other states is similar to you buying a franchise. Independently owned but still have to pay to use the name.

Sounds like you have some questions for the directors at 91. Why don’t you ask them ? I would . It’s a shame , from what I hear this current situation (pandemic) has really Shined the light on some decisions at 91 which a lot of people have always seen and left as a result . I guess the rest of you are seeing it as well. I guess that’s what happens when you’re owned by a corporate parent

You are correct....each club should have one fall and one spring/summer tournament (express does that as well as legacy ....) Then each club goes to each other's tournaments as well as some out if state teams and we reciprocate. This nonsense of dynamic (team 91) putting out 20 tournaments is pure garbage . They end up being weak tournament's filled with 91 teams anyway . Enough already.

I suspect it is only one person on here bashing 91 and responding to himself. There hasn’t been this much activity on this thread during working hours in a loooooooong time. If you’re so unhappy, pack your lax bag and jump the fence. I’m sure the turf is greener and without pellets.

Do people really consider 91 to be the 2nd best team on LI? I watched them lose to a very mediocre 2way team today. Also told Shore2shore played very close game against them. Very overrated if they’re considered #2.

Just sop unless 2way cornered the market on 6 foot one inch 12 year olds, its clear that they are not of age. If you dont feel it makes a difference, thats fine also. But please do not try to pass those kids off as 12 years old, its sad.

Did igloo and express play again on Sunday?
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2026-7th Grade Fall 2020/Summer 2021 - 10/20/20 03:55 PM
Igloo B team (Deep Freeze) and Express Wieczorek, which is the Express B team (stop it with the AA/A/B team garbage).. CoachC is their top team and they are the best LI 2026 in the age bracket as of now. I understand that the top 13-15ish boys are always on the CoachC team. The next 10-12 or so boys rotate.. They can go and sit on the bench/play scrub time for a tournament with the CoachC team and then go and get playing time with Wieczorek team. So the Express kids from 16-30 might swing up and down and/or play with both. The last batch in the pool (players 31-45ish) always are on the Wieczorek team, and probably get less time because of those swing players who come in and out. That's the Express model.... and it works for them as an organization and their team/parents.

Obviously you don’t have a part on these teams... They have 3 teams and are very clearly defined by skill level. They all train together but are and have been completely divided for every play day/tournament this year. For instance not 1 single player from CoachC’s team played on Sunday. The A team has about 28 boys, B team about 22 boys and C team about 20.

28?? That's ridiculous, especially at $4k per player

Correct. If anyone shifts, it's kids from the B team that may be fringe players and will play with the 3rd team. None of the top team comes down, nor do any kids from the 2nd team go up. There have been very clear lines drawn at this point.

But those kids on the C team will certainly be lead to believe they "could easily move up and may one day be on the top team". CoachC knows what he's doing. Everyone pays same money to say they're part of Express and the hope they'll one day be relevant to CoachC. The C team kid practices at the same time as the A kids, so he'll go home thinking he's part of the "in" crowd. Cant fault CoachC... knows how to keep the money coming in.

He made sure to avoid Tigers. He blamed it on Tigers only playing Saturday, but they easily could have played then.

Total power play move by CoachC. Basically demote Igloo and 91 to other division to not let them play against the solid competition. Roar and Outlaws in their bracket is a total joke. Those two, along with United, Legacy and Express Wieczorek are all B teams at best. This was a good pole at Igloo and 91 by CoachC.

If you want to say outlaws and roar don’t belong in the division then fine. But 91 and igloo don’t belong in that division either. Both teams get throughly beaten by express and get crushed by good competition at NLF. The name only carries you so far. You guys just need to accept that 91 and igloo don’t have great teams at this age group

In that B bracket They just might. The can’t compete with those top teams. Express crushed them in NJ a few weeks ago.
The only team United beat a few weeks ago was Legacy... who everyone seems to beat these days. Igloo beat United rather easily.
Stop referring to scrimmages and play days as games. Only tourney games matter. Sweetlax will run the table.

Only tourney games matter? What does that mean?

Win win.

Smart move from a developmental standpoint.

Also good for everyone else as it should help all better know where their team fits in the rankings.

Couldn’t agree more

Coach C is the true wizard.

Likely a choice by the player. The Express is 10-15 goals better, why wouldn’t you want to play on the best team if you were good enough? It makes sense, right?

Supposedly he plans to bring 2 teams to the qualifier. If he already has 28 or so on that team he may possibly be able to pull it off.

I think that team carries 3 goalies, which WSYL only allows for 2. So, unless they play another position, I'm guessing that would be one.

Because like him or not he’s a brilliant business man. “Come play for the B team......we think we have a good enough group to have 2 teams qualify for the WSYL. This is why he’s fielding 3 teams, yet 91 doesn’t have enough kids to field a 2nd team.

Maybe we should play a round robin, no playoff/championship game, no score keeping, and give everyone a participation trophy.

Why play on a club team?...why play at all?

The 10 goal differential between express and 91 just grew to 15 . When you lose your top player it is safe to say the team is a disaster.

Right now on Long Island there is Express and then everyone else. Express is making there team stronger and stronger and to be honest good for them. If there model works and the parents are ok paying there tuition costs and whatever playing time their kid gets so be it. The drop off after Express is significant but should make for competitive and fun games between all the other second tier teams.

I completely agree but their tuition costs are in line with other top clubs like 91 and Igloo. The tuition costs drop off for other clubs.

Correct. While I don't think winning has to be top priority, a successful team has the advantage of player retention and attracting new, better players that will improve the team annually. This will make practice more competitive and the players will develop quicker.

Wow, you're drunk as a skunk.
It does NOT cost 10K. My son played in Denver and I went with a family of 4. I would say it was about half that price with hotels, flights, food and car. For those going to MD or DC (wherever it's gonna be) I wouldn't expect it to be more than hotel & food. If you're club is telling you to pay additional then that's an issue.

The best part about this thread is that most of us have spent $16,000 on club lacrosse to date.

In 2 years when our "studs" are in 9th grade an athletic kid is going to get grabbed by a coach at gym class that has never touched a stick and be a 5 star recruit.

Clubs don't matter. Well rounded Athletes DO!

Might be the densest comment I have seen in awhile. This may have been true in the mid 90s but it’s not happening now. Many of these kids have been playing travel ball since second grade. It’s sad, but If you try and pick up a stick for the first time in 9th grade.......it’s to late. It’s not to late to maybe play in high school........but you aren’t becoming a 5 star recruit.

They have 3 teams. Weiczorek seems to have taken over the 2nd team. CoachC took the top team. There is another bottom team I assume who Weiczorek was coaching previous years before he moved up.

Interesting tourney. Tigers didn’t do as well as I thought. As previously stated, looks like Orange Storm and Eels aren’t as dominate as they were.

Agreed about tigers. They had some big kids but we’re not as impressive as I thought they would be. Legacy was never been that good. Orange storm has fallen hard and fast. Express and sweetlax were the two most impressive team this weekend.

Last year legacy was an A level team. This year definitely a B. Anyone know went on over there ? Did they lose a bunch of kids ?

How can express now beat Sweetlax when just this summer it was a total mismatch? Even prime time. Great to see them make the jump.

Wouldn't matter if they had some holdbacks. Sweetlax team didn't play their best game against a very good team and the face-off kid is the difference maker for Express. They'll play again and people should truly appreciate the level of lacrosse both of those teams play.

FYI... i watched sweetlax play in multiple age groups at Tristar. That is where you need to start checking licenses and IDs.

Mostly same kids that beat Primetime and Express last year. Added some kids. Shut down of COVID and never really restarted. In all serious it's baffling.
And LI is a small lax community, and everyone knows everyone. I know for a fact that all the kids on Express are age eligible for the WSYL, that's why CoachC built/ poached that team, to win it. As soon as they were able they were practicing 5x a week while Legacy/91 were still shut down and only had 1 practice before their first tourney. Express took top kids from the other LI programs, but they were practicing and playing, so who can blame them for leaving.

Chan is the top team. Wieczorek is the 2nd team (who was in NJ Sunday). There is also a 3rd team that he coaches. The 3rd team (with a few kids from 2nd team) is who played at Nickerson on Saturday.

Coach C put together a very good team for sure. I am curious why so many kids would stay and sit on the sidelines though. I watched 2 of their games this weekend and it seemed that they only played MAYBE 18 of the kids in each game. I counted 29 on the sideline. Is it to just say “I’m on the best team”? I’m sure the kids not playing are very good also but to stay and not ever play seems like a waste to me.

As a Roar dad who doesn't have a stick in this battle the following have a chance to win the WSYL (all depending how many kids are holdbacks or not): ExpressC, Sweet Lax, Tigers, Prime Time and BBL. Express moves ball good but there are better athletes on the others.

On Saturday evening a parent and sibling of an Igloo player tested positive for COVID. The Igloo 2026 player tested NEGATIVE. Igloo immediately informed Tristar and while no other players were in close contact with a positive person per CDC guidelines, they determined the only choice for the safety of all players/participants of the tournament was to pull out.

Like someone from Sweet Lax posted prior to the weekend...tournaments are what matters, play days don't count. The 9-8 win vs Express this summer at Darien HS meant nothing, only pay attention to the result from Tristar.

There are some parents on express(and other top teams) who feel like practicing with a top team is super beneficial, even if they receive very little or no real game time. Seems crazy to most of us. But if they choose to do it. Who cares

This is not an Express dad talking here just someone trying to stir the pot. Considering tigers 3-1 against us (time before tigers won 11-1), yeah the play day win felt good but we haven't beaten them in a tournament yet. We watched them after their prime time win and they had sweeetlax on ropes early and later without their goalie & injured kids. Express ain't taking them lightly.

My son played against Express this weekend. I didn't count the players on the sideline but I would agree that there are a ton of them. I would also agree that there is definitely a benefit to practicing with players of that caliber. If they're not playing in the games and are fine with it then that's on them.

You might be close with these rankings but 91 has looked really bad . It sure they are even in the top 20 anymore . And agree with the person here , express has tk beat the Hawks before you can rank them #1. That hasn't happened yet .

Agreed. My son plays for Towermen and we played both at NAL. We beat the Tigers by 2-3 and got blown out by the Hawks. I was surprised that the Tigers beat the Hawks. According to this forum, that is their only loss to any of the teams you listed.

You obviously don't know anyone on the the Sweetlax roster because they really don't care who has holdbacks and will happily play any top ranked team anywhere. Express won at Tristar and congrats to them, but Sweetlax played the toughest schedule last weekend and would gladly run it back. The team that played this weekend is the same team that will make it to the WS, minus 1 pole that missed the cutoff by 2 weeks.

The only way to end this ridiculous peeing match is to square off at the WSYL which keeps the playing field level so you don’t have a 14 year old man child playing against 12 and 13 year olds who haven’t started puberty yet. And I won’t be surprised if the following teams don’t enter because they will have to leave their best players at home due to age: hawks, Looneys, Laxachusetts, sweetlax upstate.

Has Express ever beat the Hawks...Ever

No

Sorry Vinny, Hawks will be there. Including the kids you thought were 13-14 last summer at Stonybrook.

The hawks have been hiding in Biden’s basement all fall. The real top teams have been playing each other every weekend.

Maybe the hawks are the team to beat this year. Maybe not. My question is if Long Island is so soft......why has the region won the event every year ? Not only have they won the event every year, I’m pretty sure it’s 2 Long Island teams in every final. Until someone else wins it......they are the region to beat

Unfortunately the WSYL rules make it possible for clubs to create special “WSYL” teams. Don’t worry, the Hawks will be filling all of the vacant hold back slots with all-stars from DMV area. Hawks will easily sweep the WSYL.

Someone actually broke down the Hawks 4 players that won't be there and their birth date a little while back. You may want to scroll a few pages back. They will be there minus 4 kids and only 1 is big and he was the add last year. Sorry to burst your bubble

It should be a fun event. I guess we can stop talking about who is better as it will be settled on the field (for any adults that really care).

How is the Sweetlax NY goalie? They cant use the Florida goalie for WSYL.

He was very good, he scored their first goal a minute into the game.

Are you sure that wasnt the Florida kid?


100% Upstate. The Florida goalie hasn't played with Sweetlax in a year. The team carries two goalies bother from Upstate but only one traveled this past weekend.

I would think that Hawks, Express, and Sweetlax are separating themselves from the rest of the pack. Will be interesting to see who is #4.

Remember LXC guy saying same nonsense before they went into irrelevance,,,,Sweetlax and Express are no where near the Hawks. We crushed Sweetlax this summer.

Unfortunately, WSYL unlikely to happen in 2021 due to COVID. Most teams aren't going to be able to travel to DE in March if current COVID trend rates continue. Maybe they'll hold it for 3 age groups in 2022?

The Hawks and their holdbacks certainly didn't crush Sweetlax, but looks like we can settle this on the field at the WS... if they actually attend.

Sweet Lax should worry less about the Hawks and more if they will even make it past the qualifier. Total joke trying to compare SL to the Hawks

No clue on Laxachusetts. They have been quiet on here and on the field. Are they carrying a large amount of older kids? I would guess Express, Sweetlax, Eclipse and PT from the North. Hawks, Tigers, BBL and VLC or Towermen in the East. Assuming that the Madlax all star team design doesnt hold up against quality teams that have been playing together.

Coach Chan isn't losing. No way he makes 2 even teams. He'll make the best 1st team possible to win it all and the rest will play on the other team with the best kids that are already on it.

You forgot AAAAA and AAAA+
It's A and B and honestly, the 3rd team is developmental. I'm not even sure I'd give them a letter.
I only say that because of the stark difference between his top team and the 3rd team. The top team runs like a top. They don't miss a beat.
The 2nd team has potential, once they make some tough cuts. Even the 2nd team can't compete with the first team.

Most clubs can't qualify with one team and they will try to send two, that's the point.

Rebels 26 team is not that good. Express W could be the B or the C team. It’s tough to tell which one your playing on a particular day

I’m getting real tired of these “tournament companies” putting on events before they’ve even secured field space. Blatant was in October then cancelled. Then moved to the 14th .....cancelled. Give me a break. Stop saying your going to put on an event if your not 100 percent positive you have the fields and clearance to play. My Lollipop tournaments has cancelled several events due to “field problems”. Enough already

Express plays in a tournament or 3 team play day literally every weekend. AA is playing Eclipse, Primetime & 2way this weekend in CT and their B team is playing a couple teams on LI. Sorry to hear about other disorganized programs.

I wasn’t complaining about my club. They have given us plenty of tournaments in the fall. I was complaining about the tournament companies that keep canceling events at the last second due to field space.

I agree. It’s like these tournament people advertise a tournament with a date, make teams sign up, then try to find a field.

I see all these teams doing play days/tourneys. My kid's darn team is just cashing checks. Been in two crappy tourneys all fall (away of course). Would be great just to do games vs teams from LI every weekend. We did last year, but I guess the director can't make money off of them and stopped it.

There’s 3 express teams. So you would have to be more specific. Mike C believes in practicing and playing a lot. Yes there are to many kids on the teams and some on the top team will not play much. As a parent who’s had kids who play in Express and 91, I will say that Mike C works a lot harder to find you games to play. 91 is so entrenched in their tournament company the coaches are limited to what they can do. Covid has really exposed this.

And Turtles, LILC, Express A,B,C teams, Roar are playing every weekend. 91 and Legacy are just cashing checks. Schedule some scrimmages or play days and stop the scam of trying to go out of state for your own tourneys. Son’s team did it last year, but not this year since director can’t cash in.

Was it their B team as in A, B and C? Or, was it their B team as in AA, A and B.

3 teams and they spin differently every time to make sure the parents feel their kid is so close to being an A or AA player. LOL.

If your going with AA, A, and B then I believe it was their A team. If we’re going the normal way of A, B, and C, then I believe it was their B team. Either way a good team nonetheless.

They actually don't spin things. They're pretty upfront and honest about where your kid falls and what kind of competition they'll have them play with.
As far as Saturday, it was probably 22-23 kids, but definitely not 35. It was their 2nd team. However you want to classify that, it's up to you.

My son plays for the Rebels. I was told it was Express’s 2nd team. I agree, good looking team and well coached. Their 3rd team is pretty weak. My son played them a few weeks ago at Nickerson beach.

Yes, winner of Sweetlax/Express is the clear top team. It would be fun if our winner could play the PA winner (presumably Tigers or Madlax) for an ultimate NAL Fall championship.

I would say the biggest thing his team has over all the other top teams is depth. He has 3 teams at this age group while other top clubs struggle to field a 2nd team. His 2nd liners could be top liners on most other clubs. His third liners won’t play much and the parents are ok with that. He practices a lot and plays a lot of games against good teams. This attracts top players. Now that they have created serious separation from other top LI clubs(at this age group) top players from other clubs want to play there. They recently had a middie leave 91 in the middle of the fall season to go play for him. That would never have happened in the past.

Great game as expected and a travesty that they didn’t play again in the championship game due to ridiculous tie breaker rules. Sweetlax played tougher schedule and beat Primetime head to head, yet PT played LI in championship game due to goals against rule. Sweetlax and LIE best teams on the fields today.

It’s too bad actually as everyone would’ve rather seen LIE play Sweetlax again. Sweetlax was up on PT 8-2 at the half and took their foot off the pedal looking forward to the rematch with LIE. Ultimately, won only 8-6 and that affected goals against tiebreaker. Those are the rules, but after watching these teams play, can’t imagine anyone would argue who the best teams were today.

No doubt , express and sweetlax then all of the rest .. unfortunately because of the way brackets are made up you won't always see the two best teams in the championship. For example there are teams that don't want to play certain teams and today there were teams that didn't want to play express or sweetlax . So they have to play with the schedules and move things around . Then the better teams have to play each other and knock each other out of the championship game . That's what happened today and why sweetlax wasn't in the final . But everyone knows that express and sweetlax were the top two teams .

Express and Sweetlax the best 2 teams there today by far. Everyone else is behind by far. What's with 91 Orange? They are a good B team at best.

Nothing says you are a team to talk about like coming in 4rth sweetlax. Stunards.learn math. Primetime finished ahead of you.

Interesting since LI Express beat Jersey Express 6 to 5 in sudden death overtime to get to Finals against Prime Time.

Sweetlax actually finished in 4th place.

If that helps you feel better, then by all means sleep well tonight lol. Sweetlax has willingly played the top ranked teams as often as possible this year and not sure everyone else can claim the same. PT played Team 91 and Igloo, which are "B" level teams, prior to losing to Sweetlax and LIE. Only got to play in the championship due to tiebreaker rules, which is fine, but let's not confuse that with the 2 elite teams that played here this weekend.

Your right....it is horrible. But the 2025 coach is not the coach. The 2026 team has been ruined with daddy ball and allegiance to massapequa and wantagh. As a result they have kept kids around for too long that have no business being there.

My son's take on the teams he played: LE not in the right bracket; Sweetlax most skilled players, but not as tough as others in some spots; Jersey Exp very physical and cocky but in a good way for them; Prime Time no idea how they got to championship, should get crushed by sweetlax and Jersey Express.

So apparently head to head matchups don’t matter lol. Sweetlax has beaten the Tigers, PT and Madlax easily this year and has beaten LIE as well, but LIE has beaten them twice, which puts express ahead for now. Either way, this will continue to play out (hopefully) into 2021 and until any of these other teams can beat express or sweetlax, the conversation stops there.

It's not a LI board and you're simply another keyboard warrior that has trouble with basic facts. The Sweetlax team has only lost to the Annapolis Hawks and LIE since last fall... all of which were very close games. The team is very good and certainly deserving of its ranking. In fact, they've beaten the following top 25 ranked teams; 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 17, 21, 22, and 23. So call it for what it is and don't forget that the unless your kid plays for the Hawks or LIE, you haven't beaten them. Lastly, these games are played by 12/13 year old boys and not keyboard warriors. Stick to facts and I hope you help your son understand the importance of competing on the field vs. hiding behind a desk.

The last tournament that had the largest selection of top 2026 teams was the National Lacrosse Federation Club Nationals tournament July 2019 at UMASS. Sadly due to COVID19 there was not another tournament this Summer or Fall that had such a large number of the best teams across the country. Sweetlax lost to Madlax in the semis. Tommyknockers lost to Laxachusetts in the semis. Laxachusetts was the champ. LI Express and Express North only made the quarterfinals. https://tourneymachine.com/Public/R...ivision=h20190705131730309e8c662c045fe43

Not a valid argument. A lot changes in a year, more hold backs are added to teams this Fall.

Agreed....sweet lax and express had a mutual respect for each other when they played . No express parent would say that sweetlax stinks . Well after the game the kids from both teams were talking to each other as two teams who respected each other and felt like they were the best teams there . Why this conversation has to go into the gutter is anyone’s guess

So they are just hanging out in Massachusetts and not playing good teams for the last 16 months because no tournaments meet their standard of competition? All of the other top teams (except Colorado) were out playing one another this summer. Not going to get better just playing NE Twisters and 4Leaf Army.

Please. All of those teams were at NAL this summer. FCA, Sweetlax, Bethesda, BBL, Madlax, LI Express, Express North, Legacy, Hawks, Primetime, Tigers, Towerman. That's the entire top ten of 2026 minus the Colorado teams.


Who won that tournament?

I believe the Hawks. Certainly not Laxachusetts

Like the Colorado teams, Laxachusetts hasn't played many competitive teams in the last year.

I saw Tommyknockers all over Instagram with their big win in Raleigh. LOLOLOL. Is there any reason they could not come up North and play real teams. All those highlights look awesome playing midwest schlubs. Why can't they play against real competition.

If you're flying to the east coast, why go play Team 91 Carolina, Krakens, VLC, and Shamrocks when you had a Saturday and Sunday in PA & MD where you could have played some of the top 2026 teams?


Not sure which team you are from but Tommyknockers is a legit top 5 team. Don’t know how many hold backs they field but they pass extremely well and their D is strong. I would like to see them play Hawks, it would be a great game.

The videos online of TommyKnockers is laughable. Looks like you are playing rec league teams

Then why go to that NC tournament? Sounds like they had a decent summer in 2019. I have never seen them play. Will they be in the WSYL? Or do they have too many older kids? At NLF club championships they beat Big 4 HHH (20-0, classy), team 91 LI, and 2 different Express north teams by 3 & 4 goals. Then lost to Laxachusetts in the finals. I would think that the top NY or MD team that regularly plays top competition would handle them.

What top teams have Tommy knockers beaten to back up your claim that they are a top 5 team? I know that US Club lacrosse has them and whoever the Kings are at 3 & 4 but I dont see how they are there when you look at the teams they play.

Any thoughts on the 25/26 camp this weekend in NJ? Is this basically a starter showcase?

I think it’s more of a clinic with great coaches and couple of games. Rosters just came out. Looks like some pretty good kids are participating.

Because a lot of these kids are from Long Island and have been playing travel lax since 2/3rd grade. Between camps, clinics and switching teams, kids get to know a lot of kids on other teams. Maybe you should let your kid hang with his friends in between games instead of yelling at him for the shot he missed

It’s over $400 for less than 4 hours of lax. That’s pretty expensive even with college assistants. Over $65k in the bank. Plus the cut they get from parents buying videos at 120 or more for 7/8 grade kiddos. And the guy behind it from S2S loaded up his sons team! Weak move, very weak!

I’ll skip this one. But they sold it out apparently.

Yes my son is going. You can’t see the rosters unless you signed up. The rosters have the kids name and the club they play for. Someone asked about the event and if they could still sign up. I was simply giving that person information. If you think it’s too much money I respect that opinion. No need to bash people who want to go. I’m gonna make a day out of it with my son and check out Princeton campus. Happy thanksgiving

If you think the rosters aren’t circulating you are crazy!

It also comes with a sports psychology book for the boys! It should be for the parents. They need their heads examined if they go for this!

Adult men following 12 year old boys playing lacrosse, creepy isn't the word. I shake my head at some of these guys, a hot mom will walk right in front most of these dads', and the dads' neck will never turn, but they have laser focus on 12 year old boys!

Yup. Just a bunch of Long Island coaches with a college coach sprinkled in here or there. All the college coaches they advertised were not there. Overall I thought the event was overpriced. Best part is they make you give the jersey back after your done. Seems cheap and with covid just downright gross
