what are the chances of a 2024 making UA?
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2024-9th Grade Fall 2020/Summer 2021 - 08/20/20 05:36 PM
Usually take a handful of the younger grade. Maybe less this year though as the 2023 class on LI seems particularly strong.

Very good. Remember the 24 YJ coach evaluated. About 7 girls made the call back game and her daughter its confirmed has made the team.

its very skewed the coaches of the teams shouldn't be evaluating. they just pick their own players there was also another parent coach there whose daughter will be on the team. Its a shame because it devalues the program

YJ 2024 coach’s daughter will not make team unless she earned it. Coach’s daughter should make it on merit. She did a number on thorns team last month at the draw circle.

LOL, not only will she make it the Jesters Coach's daughter will also make it that's a guarantee. Merit doesn't apply here.

bottom line parents should not be coaches or evaluating their own kids and friends. Make it objective be transparent. The whole thing has lost credibility a long time ago. Why the decline in participants. Everyone knows its a show

Corrigan has already reached out to multiple club directors to apologize for the results of the try out. There were more YJ 24’s and Jesters that made the call back list then any other 23 club on the island and he knows he has major issues. Having an 18 yr old evaluator didn’t help either.

I played modified or JV last year and I am on the B team of my club but I am an all American believe me...those empty profiles will look great in their UA books.

UA try out was a circus to say the least.

Actually got that wrong. The 2023 group is just lacking a dominate team from any club. LI has always had a team or two that could go down and handle all the MD teams. This age group does have some talented kids, just to spread out over so many programs, there is not a strong team among them. Players who could be a solid middle of the road player on the top team are leaving programs to go be the top players on lesser teams.

I didn’t realize the tryout was last month 🤔. I thought it was yesterday? How she played against YJ 2023 shouldn’t matter. It should be how she played yesterday. I guess the team was picked a month ago

She earned it once her YJ mom offered to be an evaluator.

Yet they had less players invited back to the call back game then the Jesters or YJ 24 team. I wonder how the YJ 24 team had more call backs then the TG 23 black?

Don't wonder too hard! Doesn't take a brain surgeon to figure out! I'm surprised so many even tried out this year. The tournament should have cancelled, but instead turned into a money grab
What a @#$ show. 4 girls from The Massapua Jesters? Who is the coach? Was he/she an evaluator? How did that happen? I wonder? We all wonder? Did anyone even notice 3 of 4 girls in any of the games? Positions? Adding anything to the games? Either way congratulations to them and all of the girls.

Next year there will be less people once they realize the YJ run the tournament and if you aren't on YJ you are wasting your money.
What happened to the Under Armour tryouts? Dad coaches and teenagers should not evaluate their own players. Period end of story. Maybe Corrigan will take that into consideration in the future.The Massapequa Jesters had 4 girls make the team?? Has anyone even noticed 3 of 4 girls in any of the 3 games they played? They may have played hard but to what end or results?The MJ coaches daughter may have earned her spot (based at least based upon her play against the YJ) and possibly the tryout. It's been said that some of the LI Jesters girls play second line on the Massapequa Jesters. This not to the girls to blame. It's all about coaches and evaluators
They did a great job taking up for their own girls.

Are you telling me that no TG girls made the team? Did the TG girls even tryout? What about Legacy? They have a few real good girls who should be on as well. I'm wondering if many girls didn't even bother with everything else going on. Lets face it, this is not the premier event that it normally is. Pretty clear to see that the organizers just threw something together so they could collect$$$

Corrigan is finished no other clubs will be attending in the future.

15 YJ
5 Jesters
3 other teams

YJ/Jesters coaches have ruined this tournament going forward. Corrigan won't see another penny from people outside of those 2 clubs.

Just looked at the roster. I am very familiar with these girls. There is clear bias. Many of the chosen girls are weak players. My daughter is in the Highlight division, and that seemed to be run pretty fairly. Either some of the better girls in the age group didn't try out, which left slim pickings, or these evaluators were smoking crack. I really had to shake my head seeing some of those names!

1 Legacy girl made it, 1 TG black girl made it (10 tried out), 2 YJ Gold players, and 12 YJ Blue players. Thorn didn't try and disguise it at all she was taking her players regardless if other girls deserved the nod. Corrigan first lost UA as a sponsor and now I'm sure have lost the other clubs who will let them know its a completely biased tryout and tell their players to save their money don't tryout.

How does only one TG player make the team and 14YJs? You have to wonder how that could even happen in a fair tryout? TG is regarded as a top team on LI, never been beaten by any other LI team in the age group, and your telling me that only one of their players is good enough to make the UA team? Please explain!
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2024-9th Grade Fall 2020/Summer 2021 - 08/29/20 05:55 PM
best player on TG went to Jesters, 2nd best is injured, 2 other top 10 kids are injured. This isn't 2017 anymore: it's more what have you done for me lately. You lose so many players like that and you become lot more average
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Girls 2024-9th Grade Fall 2020/Summer 2021 - 08/29/20 06:26 PM
First this is the 2024 thread.

TG had 1 player make it and it would have been 2 if LD did not just leave to Jesters. With another TG stud that made it last year out injured...that accounted for 3 of their top players with 2 making it. Leg girl that made it is their premier player. Goalie not there. Others not quite same. 4 were Igloo.

The names on the roster are the same names that have topped various ranking lists. Inside Lacrosse, Back of The Cage, even a few on Newsday. Could some be interchanged? sure. The evaluators watched how they played Thursday and Thursday only. No one ever questioned the YJ talent, they question their ability to play as a team. All earned their spots.
One 23 TG made the team! Shocking seeing that they are ranked 1, 2 or 3. And seem to roll over all LI 23 teams. At least those LI teams who will take the field against them. Which LI teams have yet to play them?
So is it absolutely true, 100%, that UA will not be sponsoring the tryouts next year? If so, any thoughts about which company if any, pwill step in to sponsor providing they are able to attract the top athletes from LI and/or each region for that matter.
Any thoughts or updates?

Jesters have and always will be less than average. Daddy and mommy coaches kids make the team. Talk about less than average.

All spots were earned most certainly not based on their tryouts they strictly earned by their coach being there and pushing them through.

Maybe you should be asking the Smiths where they were Thursday... certainly they should have had one coach evaluating and making a case for their players. With all the ball hogging and lack of passing going on it’s basically impossible to have a good tryout.. the evaluators know the players and are pushing for the girls they know will compete for them.

Honestly that was so upsetting to see what happened at the UA tryouts. I was under the impression that the girls were being evaluated objectively. I truly believed that it would be a fair process. It was not. Shame on me for putting my kid through that and wasting my time. We did it for the experience my daughter knew it was a long shot for her and thats ok. The lesson that she got out of it was the only way you make it in girls lax is not through hard work but who you know and what team you are on and if your coach was there . Shame on Corrigan sports Shame on the shady coaches everyone saw through it Congrats to the girls that made it. Some of the deservedly so from their history in the game. It is a shame that the actions of the coaches have really taken away the value of it. There was a huge shadow cast on the program.

The names on the roster are the same names that have topped various ranking lists. Inside Lacrosse, Back of The Cage, even a few on Newsday. Could some be interchanged? sure. The evaluators watched how they played Thursday and Thursday only. No one ever questioned the YJ talent, they question their ability to play as a team. All earned their spots.

All spots were earned most certainly not based on their tryouts they strictly earned by their coach being there and pushing them through.

Honestly that was so upsetting to see what happened at the UA tryouts. I was under the impression that the girls were being evaluated objectively. I truly believed that it would be a fair process. It was not. Shame on me for putting my kid through that and wasting my time. We did it for the experience my daughter knew it was a long shot for her and thats ok. The lesson that she got out of it was the only way you make it in girls lax is not through hard work but who you know and what team you are on and if your coach was there . Shame on Corrigan sports Shame on the shady coaches everyone saw through it Congrats to the girls that made it. Some of the deservedly so from their history in the game. It is a shame that the actions of the coaches have really taken away the value of it. There was a huge shadow cast on the program.


Wait, you say your daughter was a long shot to make and you did it for the experience. it ends up She doesnt make so its a shame? make up your mind..

i agree ithink the point was that was trying to make it wasn't a true tryout which i think many agree with. if you scroll through..seems like the theme. whether you made it or not the whole thing was a sham. money grab and deceitful takes away from the kids that made it too

Well said! There has to be a better way! They could at least swap coaches from different regions for the tryout. Like NJ does NY and vice versa. Wouldn't be perfect but a definite improvement. It just doesn't work the way it's being done. The numbers just don't lie! And you right that it diminishes the achievements. There a few girls who really stood out, so many that were interchangeable, yet the roster was primarily made up of the club coaches kids. Not right! Can't believe that adult coaches are so blatantly biased. Gives me a better understanding of the BLM movement!

Bottom Line—These girls are in 10th grade. The TOP players are well established and defined over all these years.
So let’s SPELL this OUT for you and everyone else for the 50th time-Inside Lacrosse is NOT the Coach Thorne or CR. BOTC is NOT coach Thorne or CR. The Team USA combine is NOT c
Coach Thorne or CR yet each one of these ranked or chose basically the Same girls that are in the team. Are there about 5 that could have gone either way, sure. That is where you had better have kicked butt at the tryout.
Last NEWS FLASH....it is going to be basically the same girls at EVERY major event your daughter tries out for. They are the competition going in. We know it. The sooner you do too the sooner you will have less anger.

Bottom Line evaluations should be conducted by non partial evaluators. Things seem a little fishy when a YJ coach selects 15 players from her own club and the Jesters coach selects 5 players from his team.

YJ with 12 UA girls lost to the Jesters. What does that say about Thorn as a coach?

These arguments have been gong on since the first year of UA All-American Senior Game and been a part of the underclass games since the beginning as well. Complain all you want but when you look back at the players that have participated in the underclass games most went on to the best college programs and had / are having good college careers (at the best programs). When you look at the players selected to the Senior Under Armour All-American Team just about all of the players go on to the top college programs and they have great careers. There are not 100 players on Long Island that are all interchangeable. there is a small group that are better than the rest. Since they combine the grades for the team there are probably 10 - 15 players at each grade that would make the team if there was a team for each grade. Thee will always be some politics and bias but over the years UA has done a pretty good job.

Very true. However I believe paying Corrigan $175 for 3 20 minute games he should be able to provide evaluators. Club coaches will always give preferential treatment to their own players.

these girls going to be judged by 1 “scrimmage”. seriously???
when it was in a playoff game 2 falls ago Igloo beat Jesters by 10 goals. (Igloo and Thorn merged). Thorn and igloo both NEVER lost to Jesters in a game! Never. Stop talking about a 1 goal scrimmage! Great job Jesters but come this really can’t be your one shining moment

2 years ago these girls were 12. This was a game vs the Thorn/Igloo merged team. Stop trying to reduce it by calling it a scrimmage. They played full regulation with paid officials. It’s on Utube. Watch it.

You play a game, the goal is winning by both teams.
a scrimmage is totally different; can play 2 goalies. reserve attackman and defenders. Winning isn’t always paramount. I don’t know what either of these coaches intention was but I got to believe that neither thought people be talking about a scrimmage 2 months later.

who told you it was a game?? game for what league or what tourney, send me the box score and standings. Stop with it had officials.......so that makes it a game.
Play in college or HS and you have a scrimmage; are there refs there?? of course
Bottom line is nobody cares about the scrimmage or the score, we care about the process and getting your son or daughter into a great college. The list every single year on the YJ website is proof. horn is filled with top D1 prospects. Make sure you tell Cathy Reese you beat Thorn in a scrimmage with real live officials and it's even on youtube. very sad the things we hang out hat on.

I think there were maybe 2 or 3 last year, my point not many. I hear a lot of complaining about the evaluators. 2 were from Jesters and one was YJ. Jesters only took 4-5 girls, so coming down on them over the number of kids from their team is a little ridiculous. Yjs team is stacked after picking up igloo, no surprise there. What’s going to happen next year when the promising 2025 class show up? Stop complaining and train!

The fact that you expect impartial evaluators in anything is laughable. no offense but you are very naive. my daughter got overlooked at UA every year. after the first year.she did not even want to try out but she always made the uncommitted team and she did so well that we bought the tryout tape. it was pretty funny watching her beat the girls who made it over her on video. If yor daughter played as well as you say then i am telling you to do the same thing i did. it only helped her during recruiting as she had great highlights. now she has a full tuition athletic scholarship. I pay room and board. laughing all the way to the bank. I say let them keep UA as is... she dint make it adn it worked out freaking great.

the uncommitted girls play against other 'uncommitted' girls AKA the girls who didn't make the UA team. Those girls don't play against the girls who made the team. You make the team you play other regions; not girls that got cut. Your daughter may have played well enough to buy the film, but stick to the facts; they don't play the girls who Made the team congrats on your full tuition deal.

He/she said they bought the tryout tape, not the uncommitted game film. I assume a player who makes the uncommitted team made the callback game, so likely got film playing with and against some highly recruited players.

We just returned to San Diego (Mad Dog West Elite girls 2024) from Prime Time and LAX Recruiting Challenge. Wanted to give the Mid-atlantic region cudos for putting together a great weekend of lacrosse. The competition our girls faced was significantly better overall than what they face in California and we are looking forward to more trips out here in the future.

As we are not very familiar with the Eastern teams, I was curious what the forum thought about the teams that our girls faced (MD United, LI Legacy, M&D Red, Mesa Elite, Phantastix Purple, and Carolina Fever)? Our girls had a good weekend (6-0; I realize that COVID rules/no draws change things a bit) and we are trying to gauge where the team is relative to the rest of the country. Obviously the vast majority of the talent is out East so it is fun to pick the brains of people who understand the lacrosse landscape at a national level.

By the way I am new to this forum and apologize if this type of question has been asked by other Western parents previously.

The last 4 teams are B teams in top clubs or top teams from B level clubs. The first two are A- .

And, I wish I was returning to San Diego right now ;-) Glad you enjoyed your trip out East.

Gotcha. That is what we gathered based on the 2019 US Club Lax final rankings as well as the level of play on the field.

We definitely noticed that the Eastern teams had excellent game IQ and stick skills, certainly compared to the Western teams. Probably because so many of our players are converted soccer players who are getting a bit of a late start to lacrosse. In general your teams play a more sophisticated offense compared to what is played out West, where many teams will give the ball to their one or two fastest players and have them try to score off isolation.

That makes sense because some of the teams you played have top level coaching where "me" ball is frowned upon. You also got to play both Maryland teams and a Long Island team which have different play styles.

Here, the top athletes with top level stick skills will concentrate in a few clubs. Those clubs will attract talent regardless of coaching, so the players themselves may be fantastic but their team ball may or may not be great depending on the coach assigned to the team. Regardless, they are generally very competitive because of the level of talent on the team. The next tier down will attract girls who are either great athletes but have moderate stick skills or the opposite, great sticks but moderate athletes, and lastly a few parents or girls who are tired of the top tier politics. Those middle tier teams usually survive on good coaching, because without it, they can't compete and would end up in the B tier and then have a mass exodus of players. The B tier is generally considered the "money grab", coaching is a hit or a miss, they get poor tournament selections and lousy brackets and players who for one reason or another are less committed.

Sounds a lot like the soccer landscape in SoCal. The elite clubs like Surf, Blues, Slammers get elite talent regardless of which coach is assigned. The next tier clubs get girls with high ceilings and/or average athleticism with excellent fundamentals, and coaching is what keeps them knocking on the door for the "super brackets" that everyone is striving to get accepted into for recruiting purposes.

I am hopeful that some of the better Western teams (Mad Dog West Elite, Team 180, Tenacity, Grit Dallas etc) can make more trips out East and have some success so that they might change the perception a little about Western lacrosse, and also get them an occasional invite to play against the M&D Black/Hero's/YJ/Monster (ie top 10) caliber teams. Right now it seems the best we typically gain access to is the top 10-20 teams, which is still awesome and significantly better than what we routinely see west of the Mississippi. The problem is that historically, other than the handful of Western teams mentioned above, there is not much depth, so typically when an average Western team comes out it either gets smoked or is placed in a very weak bracket.

I am hopeful that some of the better Western teams (Mad Dog West Elite, Team 180, Tenacity, Grit Dallas etc) can make more trips out East and have some success so that they might change the perception a little about Western lacrosse, and also get them an occasional invite to play against the M&D Black/Hero's/YJ/Monster (ie top 10) caliber teams. Right now it seems the best we typically gain access to is the top 10-20 teams, which is still awesome and significantly better than what we routinely see west of the Mississippi. The problem is that historically, other than the handful of Western teams mentioned above, there is not much depth, so typically when an average Western team comes out it either gets smoked or is placed in a very weak bracket.

At this point, I believe you will rarely, if ever see all the "Dream Teams" in the same pool. Most of the tournaments at 2024 and older are a "showcase" structure with the pools looking like they were seeding for a playoff bracket, except there isn't any playoffs. Therefore, you'll see one or two higher caliber teams in a pool with substantially weaker teams. I believe much of it has to do with politics and money. You cant have Super AAA Club beating Rockstar AAA club and then losing to Jedi Masters AAA - it's bad for business for all of them so the clubs don't want to risk the loss. They'd rather play weaker teams, go 3-0 and claim they're the best without ever having to put their money where their mouth is. At least, that is my opinion on what the girls lacrosse landscape looks like.

As we are not very familiar with the Eastern teams, I was curious what the forum thought about the teams that our girls faced (MD United, LI Legacy, M&D Red, Mesa Elite, Phantastix Purple, and Carolina Fever)? Our girls had a good weekend (6-0; I realize that COVID rules/no draws change things a bit) and we are trying to gauge where the team is relative to the rest of the country. Obviously the vast majority of the talent is out East so it is fun to pick the brains of people who understand the lacrosse landscape at a national level.

By the way I am new to this forum and apologize if this type of question has been asked by other Western parents previously.


Such nice sentiments - Im glad you enjoyed your trip East!
As for the teams you played - MDU, Legacy, MDred were the good teams. Not sure about the others enough to say anything. Teams by year can really vary at these clubs. But to go 6-0 is excellent! Im just asking, but you had more than one or two girls score all of the goals right? Because that can happen in lacrosse - you can have one girl take care of most of the scoring and its crummy. She leaves for greener pastures in grade 7 or 8 and the team deflates.

Also Ive noticed- my daughter is older- that girls that dont make the A team dont accept the B team, they go to another club (if possible and not geographically undesirable- i.e. traffic, rush hour) to get on their A team.
As for playing style, the West teams are built around a few good scorers and the rest it can be up in the air, skills wise, but still very athletic. Playing basketball is an excellent segway to lacrosse! More than soccer! Ive got all three sport in my girl and I love BB the best.

When weve played at national tounaments (where we had to leave MD) the faraway teams all had a few great goal scorers but we always capitalized on unforced errors and rookie mistakes. I see it a lot when I look at film too. Its always a good idea to have a good film against good competition.
Faraway girls are also more hungry to suceed. My daughter has been playing since Kindergarten and shes a little tired of it to be honest.
You should check out SDSU. A lot of girls from Baltimore were going out there to play for a few years, they may have some girls who would love the extra money coaching a bit.

We were also there and the competition was tough . Skywalkers, Top Guns, Capitol and Monster. Capital and Top Guns had some impressive finishers. . They are heading in the right direction. Always nice to play competitive teams. Look forward to mid atlantic.

Got to see team 180 play at Mid Atlantic. They played Lakeshore a s really good players on both teams. Team 180 24 scheduled games with Md United and both M&D teams. Great experience for the girls. They too have some really good athletes that could play on top clubs in the East.

As a point of reference, the top teams based on summer and fall results would be M&D Black, Monster, NEMS, Hero's Green, CT Griz Navy, Sky Walkers Blue, Team 180, Capital...Yellow Jackets Wiener is in the mix, but was not able to play anyone in 2020

TG Black looked very good at The Chesapeake. Their team put up points, but like many of the Long Island teams it was 2-3 girls doing the scoring. What happened to that team at The Mid-Atlantic? They looked like 2 different teams. Looked like TG 24 team from the past couple of years They couldn't get anything going on offense or stop anything on defense. Seemed like a different coach at Mid ? We definitely heard coach at Chesapeake.

They didn’t play anyone good. They are not close to competing with top A teams.

It's Fall Ball everybody relax! Teams added
new players to their rosters. The kids never ever played with each other before. That's why you saw 2-3 players scoring all the goals. Those kids were knew to their team or teams. Let's see how it pans out in the summer. Who knows? They may surprise you. Good luck to all!

UA and 180? What does that really mean? No disrespect to the hard-working players, but 180 players yes? it's a softer group all around than in the last. What's with the the 2024 girls teams and players? Is it only YJ and the 2025 teams that play lacrosse? I haven't seen nor heard one thing about the 2024 class. Is it that there are no decent teams or players that play lacrosse in that grade? Are there ANY up and coming teams or players look forward to seeing?
Good luck all.

My daughter is a 2024 and we play for a smaller club and is one of the best on her team. People keep telling us that if she wants to play in college we should move clubs. What 2024 team is strong at this age group?

Others may laugh at this, but you should give Team 91 2024 Crossfire a look. The former 2021 coach just took over that squad in the fall and I don't know that any coach puts in more effort on behalf of each and every player. She's a great role model and great motivator, and is transforming the culture of that particular team (no comment on the rest of the 91 girls program). My daughter doesn't play for them, but trains with the current coach, and she's already getting great recruiting advice. If you try to move to one of the top teams at this point, your daughter might get buried on the bench or sent to a "B" team. Not sure how that helps her. So again, I'm recommending the team because of the coach and the support your daughter will get from her, not because of where the team sits in the pecking order of Long Island lacrosse.

Will your daughter try out for Under Armour or American Select? If she tries out for both, and makes both teams, which one will you select?

Hey there! I’m Sam Tilts, the coach of the 2024 Crossfire team referenced above. This was actually shared with me by a colleague, but I’m glad he sent it! Whoever wrote the reply about me, thank you so much! I’m on the hunt for you now 😂

If you’re interested in coming to a practice or training, feel free to email me at coachtilts.91lacrosse@gmail.com

Feel free to check us out on insta @91girlslax2024 or my personal training account @coachtilts

On another note, go where a coach works for you and where your kid gets the sense of being part of something more than just lacrosse. Find a place your daughter can grow while still loving the sport. Their mental growth, athletic growth, emotional growth, and academic growth are all important. Send your daughter wherever feels like a place she can be happy, pushed to her limits, but still enjoying the sport. At the end of the day, there is no point to playing if she isn’t happy. As tempting as it is, try not to let too much word of mouth (even about me) influence you as much as your daughters experiences. Every coach and team has a different vibe.

Best of luck!

Second this. My daughter tried out for this team in August but didn’t make it. We were looking to leave our team after playing hers and seeing that she gave feedback to each kid when they left the field and my husband and I were impressed. Sadly my daughter didn’t make the team but even after the fact was send a list of drills and a paragraph of feedback from the coach. She even went as far as to reach out to her in social media to see how her fall went. I’m trying to get her in to do private lessons because at this age all I want is her to have a good role model. If she had made the team I would have not hesitated to move her from her current team (which has four teams for the 24 class) We plan to try out again next year and hope for different results.


Any other teams parents recommend if she doesn’t make this team again?

I second the reply about 91 2024 Crossfire. I saw the coach already posted but did not attach it to your original reply so you may need to scroll down to find it. This past summer my daughters club team played played the crossfire team and lost after the coach clearly told her players to stop scoring. The parents on the sideline said it was her first game with them which was alarming to me in the best of ways. She spent the entire game coaching with no play off. My daughter came off the field and asked me if she could try out because the coach gave every kid who came off the field feedback. Unfortunately my daughter did not make the team after going to a tryout. The coach did not simply post numbers of kids who made it but rather reached out to us, and I assume every other family, individually. Coach Sam sent us a drill list that paralleled her feedback for my daughter. When I tell you I was taken away by her professionalism and care for my daughter.... My daughter has played another fall with her club team which as the other reply mentioned has four teams for the 2024 grad year. We are just as upset to have not made the team as we were this August, but she plans to try again this summer.

I'd also look into some of those teams labeled as "elite." They often have way over two lines for positions and will make as many teams as they can collect a check for. These teams will bench weaker players, so if your kid isn't the best on one of those teams she won't really get any looks.

Haha! Lots of people make mistakes in their private lives. This has nothing to do with his coaching abilities. Are you perfect? Or just a DB trying to stir the pot out of jealousy.

You must be blind to the fact that who we surround our kids with is important...if you're ok with creepy men with a bad rep coaching your kids thats fine. Kids have also been leaving a few programs like crazy over the last year, one of the reasons Shannon took over our team to begin with.

Totally agreed on this. We left the program last year and have never been happier. Everyone talks so much trash about each of these orgs but in reality some of these clubs have coaches and directors who will go above and beyond for their kids. I'm glad I found one of those teams finally after my older daughter had a bad experience at another club.

Haha! Lots of people make mistakes in their private lives. This has nothing to do with his coaching abilities. Are you perfect? Or just a DB trying to stir the pot out of jealousy. Nobody’s “flocking” away. FACT. Teams are just fine. Now go crawl back into your hole and figure out why your daughter still can’t catch the ball!

You must be blind to the fact that who we surround our kids with is important...if you're ok with creepy men with a bad rep coaching your kids thats fine. Kids have also been leaving a few programs like crazy over the last year, one of the reasons Shannon took over our team to begin with.

You must be blind! Half the dads on the teams my kids have played on over the years drink beer all day at the tournaments, then drive their kid home. And if you think it’s any different when your kid plays in college you’re going to be in shock to find how much drinking is done by the parents groups. It’s not your job to police what others do. Worry about yourself and your own kid! I’m also not sure what you mean about kids leaving programs like crazy. My daughter plays on a top TG team. We are very happy and none of the starters are leaving. I think people are trying to stir the pot maybe because their daughter is not getting played enough?

The fact that you're admitting that you drink all day and then drive your kids around is next level parenting.

Don’t go to Legacy or YJs team has well over two lines unless you do YJ d team. Legacythrowing 24s onto 25 and 23 teams to keep them around for next year in case anyone bails. Great players but organizations are such a money scam. Where does your kid play now?

I second the reply about 91 2024 Crossfire. I saw the coach already posted but did not attach it to your original reply so you may need to scroll down to find it. This past summer my daughters club team played played the crossfire team and lost after the coach clearly told her players to stop scoring. The parents on the sideline said it was her first game with them which was alarming to me in the best of ways. She spent the entire game coaching with no play off. My daughter came off the field and asked me if she could try out because the coach gave every kid who came off the field feedback. Unfortunately my daughter did not make the team after going to a tryout. The coach did not simply post numbers of kids who made it but rather reached out to us, and I assume every other family, individually. Coach Sam sent us a drill list that paralleled her feedback for my daughter. When I tell you I was taken away by her professionalism and care for my daughter.... My daughter has played another fall with her club team which as the other reply mentioned has four teams for the 2024 grad year. We are just as upset to have not made the team as we were this August, but she plans to try again this summer.

I'd also look into some of those teams labeled as "elite." They often have way over two lines for positions and will make as many teams as they can collect a check for. These teams will bench weaker players, so if your kid isn't the best on one of those teams she won't really get any looks.

Top trainers and/or coaches for the 2024 class? High school or club welcome. Looking for a new team and new private trainer for my daughter.

My daughter has worked with Mike Kaplan Laxon and Coach Tilts (all can easily be found on instagram) She did a group training with laxon in Nassau and said that she was expecting it to be harder but it was still fun. She felt Mike Kaplan was unsafe because there were dozens of unmasked players with two trainers more concerned with social media and making kids like them then a workout. She liked Tilts for privates and also did a small group session with her. Only struggle is that Tilts and Laxons slots go very quick. Kaplan doesn’t seem to cap his so I think he will squeeze as many as he can in. Kaplan doesn’t train lacrosse just workouts, Laxon only has a few teams, and I am not sure which club Tilts works for.

Just going to give some advice to parents on here from having two older daughters who got college scholarships

If your kid is playing for rush, recon, or shore 2 shore girls I’d suggest getting a refund and finding a new team for the summer and going forward. Your kid has zero hope being seen playing for these teams. Unfortunately, 2024 elevate is going down too. A bunch of girls left last year, and I’m waiting for the rest to bail soon. Program used to be great, but is quickly falling apart.

I’d love to hear about which teams your daughters play for and your opinion of your team so that we can all figure out where we should be placing our kids.

We play for 91. I’ll be the first to admit that a year ago with the old coach it was an absolute bust. Since getting a new coach the team has been ridiculously positive even with a coach who expects a lot. We do non lax stuff together, our coach worked for free an extra day every week and gave up three Friday nights to have scrimmages she set up and ran without any compensation. The girls are all outside working out 5+ days a week and have easily become better than they have been in years. The coaches held recruiting zooms already and colleges are already calling our coaches based on what they’ve seen on social media and in kids film. We had a few girls leave last year to go to other teams they thought would be better who now ride the bench w it [ChillLaxin] insanely high roster numbers. We had 20+ girls try out between august and now and have kept our roster at 18. Our coach chose to not take kids and keep our roster small rather than collecting more money for the program just to fill a bigger team. I was skeptical about staying after last year, but having her come in has completely changed our experience. Our daughter told us that she has no interest in playing for any other coach and that she plans to continue to work to be the best so she can stay as a player on the team. I can’t say that the rest of the program is run this way because I don’t have kids on other teams but this group of girls and coaches have blown our family away. If your kid is a midfielder, don’t let her try out because my daughter may kill me if she knows I brought competition over her spot into the mix.

Why? His kid can take your kid's spot. That's how it works. Legacy is good but we have some dummies, like everyone else.

The coaches held recruiting zooms already and colleges are already calling our coaches based on what they’ve seen on social media and in kids film. We had a few girls leave last year to go to other teams they thought would be better who now ride the bench w it [ChillLaxin] insanely high roster numbers. We had 20+ girls try out between august and now and have kept our roster at 18. Our coach chose to not take kids and keep our roster small rather than collecting more money for the program just to fill a bigger team. I was skeptical about staying after last year, but having her come in has completely changed our experience. Our daughter told us that she has no interest in playing for any other coach and that she plans to continue to work to be the best so she can stay as a player on the team. I can’t say that the rest of the program is run this way because I don’t have kids on other teams but this group of girls and coaches have blown our family away. If your kid is a midfielder, don’t let her try out because my daughter may kill me if she knows I brought competition over her spot into the mix.

Yea well my daughter was one of the kids who didn’t make itbut plans to try again this summer. She’s really bummed she got stuck on a smaller club team again but has worked really hard to get better this year to hopefully make it next year. Any insight into what the coach is looking for? I don’t want to go to yellow jackets but if she can’t make this team it seems like the O’Sullivan team is the only team with spots still.

YJ but our team has 26 kids so not sure if they’re willing to take more

How can anyone possibly be ok with sending their kid onto a roster of 26?

Typical Long Island politics are you new here ?

It’s about the paycheck!! Sheep

But why would you put your kid in a team that clearly is over the roster size? They’ll play less which means less time to improve or to be seen by coaches

My kid plays for legacy but we already have too many kids so please find a spot elsewhere

Why? His kid can take your kid's spot. That's how it works. Legacy is good but we have some dummies, like everyone else.

My kid is not one of the dummies on this team, but I’m sure your kid is

YJ but our team has 26 kids so not sure if they’re willing to take more

We play for 91. I’ll be the first to admit that a year ago with the old coach it was an absolute bust. Since getting a new coach the team has been ridiculously positive even with a coach who expects a lot. We do non lax stuff together, our coach worked for free an extra day every week and gave up three Friday nights to have scrimmages she set up and ran without any compensation. The girls are all outside working out 5+ days a week and have easily become better than they have been in years.

We left this team a few years ago when the old cosch said she was probably moving teams. I’m still close to some of the mothers on this team and they rave about what the new coaches have done for the girls. I’d be lying if I I said there weren’t moments I question my choice to move my daughter.

My daughter plays for rush and this fall was a little better than last summer. My daughter tried out for other teams, including 91 and legacy, but didn’t make it. She’s a good player, but I guess isn’t getting the coaching she needs to be good enough to make a better team. Vicious cycle

Can you elaborate why?


My daughter played for one of the above mentioned teams for a few years. We loved what they stood for (big on community service) and at the time, they fit our needs (local tournaments). One of the downsides of being on that team was that some of the players (or it could have been a result of the parents being busy, etc.) didn't make the same time commitment to being at practices. My daughter would often get in the car and tell me how few girls were there. That had an impact on her morale and it showed in the teams' performance on the field. My daughter's interest in lacrosse had changed from what it was 3 years prior, so we decided it might be worth looking into other teams.

This past summer our daughter decided to try out for another team that she had played, and lost to, in tournaments. She made the team and so far we've been very happy with how things have progressed for her. She's upbeat when returning from practices and that says a lot to me. We'll see how it goes this Spring/Summer with the tournaments.

YJ A team is good, but again too many players. Other teams are decent, but again 26 kids on a roster if you look at their website. Supposedly after the 23 class TG isn’t all that great. A lot of switching of coaching between 24 black and purple and really bad role models.

The only real gap between teams is YJ Wiener. The other YJ top guns teams are good, but nothing spectacular. Top Guns black is currently ranked below YJ Wiener, YJ Ramos, Legacy, 91 Crossfire, and Elevate Blue. The TG team for the 24 year is not a powerhouse. Considering that elevate and 91 are typically labeled as "mid range" and are competing at a higher level than TG, I'd say that the gap is not really there.

We'll see how it goes this Spring/Summer with the tournaments.


It may just be an opinion, but from my experience I can explain why. These clubs are smaller and get less attention. Since their teams are not highly skilled, they get placed into very low brackets and don't get invited to tournaments such as nationals this summer which I know Legacy has enrolled in and 91 and YJ were invited to. Coaches have less personal connections to these teams because they don't have as many high level older players who have built relationships over the past few years. Let's take rush for example, they don't have a 22 or 23 team (that I know of) so when it comes time for the 24s the club has been completely off the radar for two years. If they were doing something to combat this, a coach heavily involved with recruiting and in contact with multiple coaches often, a coach who played for a high level school with friends who are coaches etc it would help slightly.

These teams also bring in kids who are less committed, as mentioned above. If you look at social media on other teams, you'll notice they are at solo and team trainings constantly with almost 100% attendance. Some may argue that YJ and Legacy have high numbers on their 24 rosters because of money, but it can also be said it could be to have numbers in the case that kids aren't showing up. Ideally, you'd want your daughter on a team that has extremely committed players who show up to everything and are in communication with players and parents frequently. These are the teams that will not only elevate individuals games, but team culture and cohesion on the field while attracting coaches.

I agree with this. It seems that the mid range teams and higher level teams have a much smaller gap for the 24 class. it seems like some mid range teams may have passed some of the higher level teams for the first time in a long time.

I think elevate should be ranked even lower than it is, but I don't make the rules. They got absolutely smacked this summer.

Completely agree with this and that the "top teams" have shifted from the 22/23 class to the 24 class

This past summer our daughter decided to try out for another team that she had played, and lost to, in tournaments. She made the team and so far we've been very happy with how things have progressed for her. She's upbeat when returning from practices and that says a lot to me. We'll see how it goes this Spring/Summer with the tournaments.


It may just be an opinion, but from my experience I can explain why. These clubs are smaller and get less attention. Since their teams are not highly skilled, they get placed into very low brackets and don't get invited to tournaments such as nationals this summer which I know Legacy has enrolled in and 91 and YJ were invited to. Coaches have less personal connections to these teams because they don't have as many high level older players who have built relationships over the past few years. Let's take rush for example, they don't have a 22 or 23 team (that I know of) so when it comes time for the 24s the club has been completely off the radar for two years. If they were doing something to combat this, a coach heavily involved with recruiting and in contact with multiple coaches often, a coach who played for a high level school with friends who are coaches etc it would help slightly.

These teams also bring in kids who are less committed, as mentioned above. If you look at social media on other teams, you'll notice they are at solo and team trainings constantly with almost 100% attendance. Some may argue that YJ and Legacy have high numbers on their 24 rosters because of money, but it can also be said it could be to have numbers in the case that kids aren't showing up. Ideally, you'd want your daughter on a team that has extremely committed players who show up to everything and are in communication with players and parents frequently. These are the teams that will not only elevate individuals games, but team culture and cohesion on the field while attracting coaches.

This reply sums it up perfectly without being rude

YJA is the best team in this age group. It's not close. After that YJB, Legacy, TG and Liberty are probably in the next group in some order. Hard to tell as no one has played real games in 18 months.

Also, generally the LI teams are behind the Maryland teams at this age

My daughter played for one of the above mentioned teams for a few years. We loved what they stood for (big on community service) and at the time, they fit our needs (local tournaments). One of the downsides of being on that team was that some of the players (or it could have been a result of the parents being busy, etc.) didn't make the same time commitment to being at practices.

The only real gap between teams is YJ Wiener. The other YJ top guns teams are good, but nothing spectacular. Top Guns black is currently ranked below YJ Wiener, YJ Ramos, Legacy, 91 Crossfire, and Elevate Blue. The TG team for the 24 year is not a powerhouse. Considering that elevate and 91 are typically labeled as "mid range" and are competing at a higher level than TG, I'd say that the gap is not really there.

I agree with this. It seems that the mid range teams and higher level teams have a much smaller gap for the 24 class. it seems like some mid range teams may have passed some of the higher level teams for the first time in a long time.

The real answer is that nobody knows because there wasn't a meaningful 2020 summer season and these teams rarely play each other or common opponents. Please don't tell me that the above analysis was based on the ridiculous Fall 2020 Club Lacrosse rankings.

I disagree about top guns, but liberty has a good 24 group also. I also think it is closer than many think it is. YJ didn't play a single real tournament all fall.

At this point the answer to this question is an opinion, we are each entitled to our own. I think that the top teams for 24s are probably YJ Wiener and Legacy, after that Liberty 91 and TG. I'd rank bandits, elevate, empire, rush, recon, etc underneath them all without a second thought.

So what makes the middle - low tier? training? players they attract? lack of college commitments/recruitment?

My daughter just booked a session with her after seeing her pop on on BOTC. From looking at social media it seems like she is in it for the kids not the money which is rare. One of her posts is about how she’ll do a private lesson for free because every kid should have access to the tools they want and she even shouts out other trainers and facilities that could easily take her players. This is probably one of the first times I’ve seen this type of scenario where it isn’t just about money

Top guns and legacy just recently made instagrams but don’t seem to have team pages yet

Happy stalking.

Super helpful in seeing skill level thanks.

I now understand the hype over the 91 coach. After looking at the team page and navigating to her personal coaching page it makes sense why she’s getting so many good reviews. Kudos to her for being one of the only positive topics of conversation on this site.

My daughter just booked a session with her after seeing her pop on on BOTC. From looking at social media it seems like she is in it for the kids not the money which is rare. One of her posts is about how she’ll do a private lesson for free because every kid should have access to the tools they want and she even shouts out other trainers and facilities that could easily take her players. This is probably one of the first times I’ve seen this type of scenario where it isn’t just about money

Does she have a website or something?

Instagram look up coachtilts

I just messaged her on Instagram and she replied immediately. She makes her players spreadsheets of each weeks plan so that they can keep track of their progress? This is crazy

From looking at her social media it seems she followed a team from when she was in college and they just finished with 91 when she picked up a 24 team. From listening and reading stuff on her account it seems like it’s a loyalty thing. She had a story up a few days ago, I admittedly followed her after her name popped up last week, that said she grew up in a single family
Home and didn’t start playing until spring of 9th grade. Evidently the club let her play for free and she’s stuck by them since.

So what makes the middle - low tier? training? players they attract? lack of college commitments/recruitment?


Players just aren’t that great and don’t get the most recruiting help

My kids not a 24 but this thread has been very active so I decided to check it out. Much to my surprise you’re talking about my oldest daughters coach. Sam was her coach for many years and poured her heart into our team. In case it wasn’t made clear, she lives in brooklyn but stayed on Long Island on weekends to be there for my kid and her teammates. This girl became family. She had offers from multiple clubs and some colleges but refused to leave our team because she had some of them since they were in fifth grade. She stayed with them from 5th grade and worked with them through gal of their senior year. The easiest answer to this question is one word: loyalty.

I think that most clubs have really questionable owners. 91 has a pretty solid group of guys running it. Maybe she just doesn’t want to deal with craziness elsewhere.

i do remember they had a very good team a couple of seasons back. maybe It was this woman’s team but i thought they may have been younger for some reason

They have a girls team for every year and the teams are pretty good. 22 A team is strong as is the 24 team. Brian Spallinas daughter age group has like 3 teams.

They've always been around, over the past few years have rly picked up again.

Probably easier to buy and rebuild smaller clubs.

They are definitely still around and doing well. The boys side is obviously a power house, but they have girls teams in jersey,
Florida, Carolinas, texas I believe, and west Chester

They did have a decent ‘23 who folded and are now YJ B and C team players. The coach of that team also went to YJ and cozz as he’s YJ ‘24. One of the 91 owners wouldn’t even let his own ‘25 daughter play for 91 girls. He is a YJ coach. 91 is just not a good girls program.

Completely disagree. The 91 girls side is strong, it’s just parents and owners of other clubs saying anyone but YJ isn’t strong. My kid doesn’t even play for them. It’s just a cycle of dads bashing other programs so other players think there’s only one good team to play on.

Also Brian Spallina’s kid plays for 91.

Here come the parade of parents trying to convince everyone that if you don’t play for YJ you don’t play in college.... what a joke. You’d think after years of lax politics you’d grow up and realize that there are more strong teams than yellow jackets.

Did you miss the various comments about the 91 coach who people seem to have formed a cult over ?

The 91 2024 coach is excellent and so are the girls. However, you are still dealing with 91. As an organization, unless you have a director/owner as your coach, you're just a cash cow to be milked for all you're worth. The girl's side is the epitome of this. They do not go to any of the better tournaments and are stuck going to 91/MyLacrosseTournaments which no other top tier organization goes to.

The other fact which many do not know is the way the top tier girls tournaments operate - you can't just enter a team in them. You have to have attended the year prior. If your team didn't, you're put on the standby list until a spot opens. If a spot doesn't open, you can't enter. The setup favors established organizations. In the event that 91 builds an excellent team on a certain grad year, they still won't be able to get into the top tier tournaments. I know this because my daughter does *not* play for YJ and I've been told about the struggle our program went through to be able to participate - it took years.

Coaches attend various tournaments. All of these teams other than yellow jackets who aren’t in those tournaments or just got in have done just fine with recruiting without them. I think that the Long Island lacrosse world has been brainwashed into thinking that smaller clubs won’t do anything for your kid. The truth of the matter is it has nothing to do with what jersey you’re wearing but rather how skilled you as an individual are as well as how hard your coach will work and support you.

My kid doesn’t play for 91, but we get nickle and dimed for every tournament and expense. At least they’re expensive but all inclusive. You know what you’re paying for the whole year, just like flg. Yellow jackets screws you by asking for money for every little thing and you end up paying just as much if not more.

The whole you need to be YJ to be recruited charade needs to stop eventually. Maybe we can be the first group of parents to stop marketing it that way.

Not accurate we play in IWCLA tournaments for the most part.

This comment is truly the epitome of the issue with this site and Long Island lacrosse. The girls aren’t scared... you act like anyone who isn’t YJ is petrified to lose a game. There are dozens of great tournaments and showcases not in Maryland. What world are you in.

Here’s some insight on Legacy - Levy’s 24 Legacy team is legit. Teaches the game, expands girls’ thinking and competes with anyone. They have some real talent at each position, but really play as a group. Judging a team/coach by social media may be useful, but probably not the best way to find out about your options.

I live in a world called being realistic. If your daughter has the talent and wants to play lacrosse at a high level in college, it's not going to happen playing for a team like 91. Another poster explained why 91 and other lower-tier teams can not get into the top recruiting tournaments. If she's just playing for fun, then that's a different story, and 91 might be fine if you don't mind spending $$ with basically no shot at a top school. My older daughter actually played for 91 when she was younger, but then we switched to YJ after I realized she was going nowhere quick on 91. YJ definitely has its issues, but things worked out. The only clubs on LI that have a track record of producing high-level D1 players are TG and YJ (maybe Legacy), and they both have their pros and cons. I would strongly suggest that you think hard about that and then pick the club where your daughter will actually get meaningful playing time, feels valued, and shows improvement. I think 91 is fine for an inexperienced beginner in grades 1-5, for a season or two, after that, if you don't make a move, you're crazy!

This team has crazy amounts of kids. Legacy team has talent but it’s a scam.

They did have a decent ‘23 who folded and are now YJ B and C team players. The coach of that team also went to YJ and cozz as he’s YJ ‘24. One of the 91 owners wouldn’t even let his own ‘25 daughter play for 91 girls. He is a YJ coach. 91 is just not a good girls program.


Here come the parade of parents trying to convince everyone that if you don’t play for YJ you don’t play in college.... what a joke. You’d think after years of lax politics you’d grow up and realize that there are more strong teams than yellow jackets.

But 91 isn't one of them. The better girls will leave by 6-7th grade. 91 teams can't play in high brackets...would get beatdown/destroyed. I think they are too scared to even travel to MD. Not good for recruiting.

This comment is truly the epitome of the issue with this site and Long Island lacrosse. The girls aren’t scared... you act like anyone who isn’t YJ is petrified to lose a game. There are dozens of great tournaments and showcases not in Maryland. What world are you in.

I live in a world called being realistic. If your daughter has the talent and wants to play lacrosse at a high level in college, it's not going to happen playing for a team like 91. Another poster explained why 91 and other lower-tier teams can not get into the top recruiting tournaments. If she's just playing for fun, then that's a different story, and 91 might be fine if you don't mind spending $$ with basically no shot at a top school. My older daughter actually played for 91 when she was younger, but then we switched to YJ after I realized she was going nowhere quick on 91. YJ definitely has its issues, but things worked out. The only clubs on LI that have a track record of producing high-level D1 players are TG and YJ (maybe Legacy), and they both have their pros and cons. I would strongly suggest that you think hard about that and then pick the club where your daughter will actually get meaningful playing time, feels valued, and shows improvement. I think 91 is fine for an inexperienced beginner in grades 1-5, for a season or two, after that, if you don't make a move, you're crazy!


disagree. If your kid is good they will get into a high level program regardless. I think that you’re probably just someone trying to get the best kids to your daughters team by pretending that other programs are less than. Yellow jackets teams at this age are not nearly as good as they once were. They also offer zero recruiting help. This is all a ploy to try and deter families from other clubs.

If you play as one of the clubs that isn’t top guns or legacy, I can assure you from 20 years coaching highschool and club that this is obnoxious dad politics. Flg 91 legacy etc are all just fine. Let your daughter play and enjoy the sport while still having access to play at any school that fits her for her level

Jesters hasn’t been brought up on here much. A lot of talk about their a team but we played them and wrecked them. They aren’t very good at all. I was surprised, we expected them to be real competition.

This is a fact. Jesters thinks they’ve become some hot topic but in reality it’s just a bunch of mediocre kids from a bunch of teams that were falling apart. They have zero team chemistry. Coaches don’t seem to rly care to put in the extra time to make them better.

Was going to mention Jesters along with Legacy as an alternative to YJ/TG. I've been hearing good things about them. They just need to gt into top tournaments. If you are not at the top recruiting tournaments, there is little to no chance to get recruited to a top 20 program. These 91 cheerleaders will smarten up eventually and realize it's a money grab with zero return. 91 girls have been around for a while. How many girls did they get recruited to top programs? I bet the answer is none.

You do realize that 91 24 team tied the jesters black team this fall with only one sub ? I’m not even part of the program but my daughter plays for empire who was also at the tournament and we watched the game. I think the fact that you’re ragging on programs is crazy.

You’re also missing the fact that coaches from some of these teams do huge damage on kids with how they treat them at a young age. I think the negativity over bashing programs you think aren’t as elite as yours is just as bad as bad as others coming at your program for being a scam, having nasty coaches, having coaches hung over and vomiting on the sidelines, having coaches kids on a teams when they clearly don’t deserve to be there, and having someone like carol leading you. You also completely leave out that YJ is collecting more money constantly from you. They also had everyone scrimmaging one another during covid so they don’t have to refund anyone. This whole mentality of YJ parents bashing everyone else needs to stop. You are not as great as you think you are, other clubs have coaches just as good if not better, and other clubs also are able to get kids recruited. Stop putting down every other club because you have a superiority complex.

Not sure why this is funny. This is about your daughter and your money. Most family’s decide to give up time and money for a chance to play lacrosse in college and earn a scholarship. Open your eyes before it’s too late. Don’t say you weren’t warned!

We play on jesters black and Spallina was in the sideline telling parents how great the 91 team and jesters looked. Both teams are a threat, stop bashing them.

Regardless of any scores, these two teams should be regarded as stronger teams. They are not nearly on the same level as flg, rush, recon, bandits, empire, etc. They are definitively in the top five alongside YJ, Top Guns, Legacy.

Easy Coach. We all know YJ is a scam. It's just a different scam than 91. Both are scams. One has garbage coaching and barely practices but has good contacts and good tournaments, the other has good coaching and garbage contacts and tournaments. Both charge too much and give too little. That's a fact, Jack.

If you look at my reply and actually read you’ll see my daughter plays for empire. I’m heated because going after mid tier clubs just keeps Long Island lacrosse in the same place it’s been for years and that effects my kid. I’m not saying any club is perfect, but at some point everyone needs to realize none of these clubs walk on water but can still get your kids to where they want to be.

Many will disagree but I don’t personally think there are that many elite tournaments. Some posters on this thread said Maryland tournaments are the “good” tournaments, but there are plenty of tournaments that attract coaches. Considering covid, I doubt there will be many coaches at tournaments for a while and they will rely on film and live streams of full games which likely have a playback option.

You can get a college scholarship with any club you play on IF YOU ARE TALENTED. Get your kid to the wall and figure out why they can’t catch a ball and that will help more than wasting all your time on this website

If you are not at the top recruiting tournaments, there is little to no chance to get recruited to a top 20 program. These 91 cheerleaders will smarten up eventually and realize it's a money grab with zero return. 91 girls have been around for a while. How many girls did they get recruited to top programs? I bet the answer is none.


We love parents who think their kids walk on water and everyone else should bow down before them 😂😂

Not sure why this is funny. This is about your daughter and your money. Most family’s decide to give up time and money for a chance to play lacrosse in college and earn a scholarship. Open your eyes before it’s too late. Don’t say you weren’t warned!


You can get a college scholarship with any club you play on IF YOU ARE TALENTED. Get your kid to the wall and figure out why they can’t catch a ball and that will help more than wasting all your time on this website

Bingo. Look at 22 class about 25% of each club's grade level got recruited within the 1st 6 weeks to top schools. The rest will come later... some to top schools some to lower level athletic schools and a good percentage not at all. The top club on LI has over 100 22's with about 25 commits.

A lot of parents don’t realize that it really depends how good your kid is. If they stink they stink, no way around it.

True. I've seen plenty of YJ girls whose parents desperately want them to be better...spending thousands on private training, and they still stink. The occasional talented girl who plays for teams like 91 will eventually leave when she's recruited elsewhere. The rest are probably best off just recognizing that 91 is where they belong.

Stop worrying about the clubs your kid plays for and worry more about how they're playing

Exactly! No matter where you play if you have skill you’re fine. There are some parents sparking fear in others when there is no reason to be concerned.

My daughter is now at a top d1 college, so this probably isn’t the thread to drop this on but oh well. We left 91 to go elsewhere and then ended up coming back after realizing the grass is not greener. After coming back to 91, she got an offer to play top d1. The team she had switched to was run by crazies and we regretted the year we spent away from the program. I’m not saying the program doesn’t have its faults, it does as all programs do. Only reason I am on this thread is because I was swayed to leave by others on BOTC years ago and the advice I took off this site was so wrong. Dont take everything you see on here to heart, everyone has anterior motives. Just like this parent said before me, there are kids everywhere that aren’t the best. Truth is, if your kid is talented and happy with their team leave them and let their skills speak for themself.

Her teammates are positive and committed to being at practices, scrimmages, and tournaments. We have twenty girls total and only one 2024 team and they can all catch a ball. wink

They have one strong midfielder, that’s it. Kids are decent players, but nothing special. They’d get killed by YJ.

You really are ok with having more than two lines of kids on your daughters team? Doesn't she want to play more to be seen more?

To clarify my original comment about doubting the rush coaches are any good- I’m sure they’re nice, but if they can’t get their kids to even catch a ball they are missing some skills

This happens at nearly every age group for YJ A teams where a coach has a kid on their own team. Usually the first couple years the coaches kid is one of the better ones on the roster, a couple years in and they are hanging on and by the end they are still on the team because how can the coach and director put the kid on the B team? And they usually have a few town friends along for the ride. These coaches will always be blind to it, thinking the kid is one of the best on the team.

This is 100% correct for almost all age groups...town team becomes the YJ A made up mostly of one town with a dad coach. it works for them i guess but it does get people crazy after awhile

I admittedly booked a session with Tilts after seeing the original post about her, and I was not disappointed. My daughter said that she was the perfect mix of fun and hard. She even sent us a spreadsheet of the private plan and it was linked to videos of each drill. I know there are some controversies on her over mid tier and higher teams but she really was fantastic. Coming from another program and having zero experience with her previously we were impressed.

I tried but sadly am on a waitlist for weekends currently. She said she has to honor the people who have been coming to her consistently and will bring in new people when someone can’t make a weekend or stops training privately. Any advice on how to get a spot?

YJ every team has more than two lines except O'Sullivan and those girls stink. If you have your kid in YJ and they are on the lower teams good luck. Carol will tell you herself she won't put them in the same tournaments as her better teams, so why bother being on a cruddy team that won't even get the only YJ benefit THE NAME. Legacy has too many kids on their team and to fill their 23 teams and collect a check they added girls who should not be on our 23 team join to collect a check and add numbers. Not sure about how many kids top guns have, but rumor has it that even the black team stinks and lost most fall games. Rush is barely keeping afloat, Recon is not strong, FLG is fine but lacks talent. Elevate has been loosing their best girls over the past two years because they collected a check and refused to give it back when they didn't do anything all of covid except scrimmages against themselves (just like YJ) which costs the club NOTHING.

Good luck at this age switching teams. If a coach wants you from another team, jump ship before you lose the offer.

TG 2024 Black was 2-2-2 in fall games, with the losses by 1 goal and 2 goals. I guess that stinks?

Really nice thing to say about kids. You must be one of those parents that thought your little superstar was getting a full ride. Have some guts and post your name and where your kid plays since you enjoy berating 14 year old girls. I have no skin in this game but you must to be this nasty. Btw look at the YJ website that O’Sullivan team is playing in all the same tournaments as all the other 2024’s. So you should maybe know what your talking about before open your mouth.

2-2-2 is not a good record at all....you also only played 6 games? What a scam!

So what you’re saying is you have a kid on the lower teams and are upset that someone called them out for not being so grand after all?

Sorry to be the person to jump on the band wagon here but I agree that too guns has gone downhill. This is far from a good record. The better teams are playing in A brackets with more wins than this.

What I’m saying what kind of adult says 14 year old girls stink. Secondly if your going to say that let’s here where your super star plays and don’t be an anonymous poster. Thirdly the poster is incorrect all YJ teams at that age level are playing in the same tournaments.

O’Sullivan is weak. There’s no if’s, ands, or buts. Just accept that your kid is on a D team that is going to be forgotten as colleges focus on your higher teams before moving down to you. No shot at a top school on a D team for a club that has 75 kids ranked higher than them in your own club.

Again I said I had no skin in this game I was just amazed that an adult with children would berate 14 year old girls and obviously I’m debating with a child cause you can not read and your information about tournaments were incorrect. Again I’ll ask where your little superstar plays and which team she is on. Btw have fun at that top school with maybe a 25 percent scholarship cause if your stud ain’t number one she isn’t getting much. Probably will ride the bench like most of these kids and be home by year two at a SUNY.

It's probably in their kid's best interest. Hopefully the apple fell far from the tree.

Hmmm...did you forget about COVID?? Last fall was not a reliable indicator of anything. Many families were affected and girls were unable to play. Was it a scam when a kid couldn’t attend because their family member died? What a piece of work you are!

Just like the “studs” on c and d teams or teams like flg and rush.

What happened to the empire kids at this age group? Older empire girls are decent, but the 2024s seem to have crashed and burned. The b team got beat all fall by like ten goals a game and the A team lost to all other Long Island teams they played. Is there a difference in coaching? What happened to the age group? Anyone whose a part of this club would love insight as I had originally considered moving my kid to empire.

We don’t play for empire but can also say that they look weaker at this age group than the older girls did as freshman. I’m sure it’s just a learning curve of some sort but definitely odd to see

Just curious what empire team you thought was good at the older age???
The 2022 was never strong
The 2023 probably the strongest in the program but they lost to YJ 25 and Elevate.
I believe the 24 team was a merger with Bengals. not sure what happen to them but the goalie went to YJ Kildare. maybe a few others followed her

The 21 abs 23 teams looked pretty good. Agreed that the Bengals team isn't looking all that great as of late.

if you are a talented 23' or 24' you can possibly find a spot on YJ kildare 24 or Rella 23. I would think the top 5 kids on those Empire teams could make a YJ B team. very hard yet not impossible to find a spot on the top teams, but I am sure you would have a known name already going into the tryout

Rella's team is a mediocre B team you should be able to make that team.

Rella is the best B team around.
They beat MD’s top 2 B teams M&D Red and Hero’s White.
Only 2 teams locally that they have no shot against is Thorn and TG black.
Rella would smoke any B team on island plus they would beat the quasi A teams at clubs like Elevate and Empire
The top players on Rella are studs on most A teams

A fall league is all about who shows up. like a men’s hockey league.
Again nobody saying they are great, but they are a solid team and a very good B team. If you are a top player on LI you aren’t on Rella. The top players are on Thorn, TG and a few scattered around on Legacy and New Jesters from TG.

The yellow jacket B team is consistently the best B team on long island and one of the strongest in the country. colleges coaches have known it for long time. look at girls like Kylie Oh. YJ B - not bad.

Under Armour 150. Good event to attend or no? Also, any idea how they pick the girls? Over 1500 applied for 300 spots.

What if your kid isn't from a lax hotbed region? Don't they need to attend some of these "money grabs" to be seen/noticed? Or are there recruiting events that are considered worth the money/not money grabs?

Not true. The event gives them major access to college coaches. Any college coach will tell you that being picked for things like under armour and brine are huge

Great event. It’s 300 spots with 150 2023 and 150 2024. The kids chosen are based off of highlight film. Each player submits film, their recruiting profile, fills out a whole application, and they need a letter of recommendation. They evaluators aren’t club coaches or parents, so if your kid didn’t get picked it’s because their talent wasn’t something evaluators thought was above other players. There are a lot of kids who apply for a reason.

These events are great. Considering they aren’t run by our local club directors it is actually a fair shot for kids. I’d say money grabs are those events run by clubs that favor their own club. If there is no favoritism, I for one think it’s a great event.

I would agree from my older daughters experience that this is a great event and certainly not just about money.

Camps are important but so are these types of teams. These teams select the best players and when college coaches look at players these teams will be shown. Not to mention they will get the film, live stream, or in person viewing of them. I have two older kids who went through recruiting and it’s still about camps and these select teams.

Any top guns kids? Jesters ? Elevate ? Congrats to all the kids that made it. Being 150 out of 1500 is no small feat

This is all opinion. A lot of parents whose kids don’t make this team will say it’s a scam.

its not the best of the best - they do try to spread out the girls from different areas... also its less competitive to get in the 24s than it is the 23s, because the 23s have played a year in the recruiting age and now they know they need to bulk up their accolades.

The 2024 class has some athletes who could beat out a lot of 2023 kids to be completely honest. I think the girls from Long Island who made it are crazy talented. Look at the film from the YJ, 91, and legacy kid that made it. They are obviously skilled.

It is too early to know if college coaches will be able to attend tournaments and events this summer, but these kids will play against other top players which is what you want. Even if it ends up being live-streamed, you will still get great film. Camps are not a sure thing this summer and remember nothing in youth sports is free, camps or showcases.

Just more exposure and a chance to play with and against high talent level

Mom** and my daughter didn’t even make the UA team. I know from who she showed me did that it is a strong group. Just gave her something to work towards for next year. Just because she wasn’t in the top 150 of the players doesn’t mean it isn’t a great opportunity.

My youngest daughter didn’t get in, my older daughter was in the event last year. I just know from my experience this was not the case. Her college coach found her from this event and now she’s at school paying almost nothing for tuition. I just don’t want other parents to think it’s a complete waste of time because a harsh critic didn’t like it.

Have to agree that this is a sound event... any kids who got in should rep Long Island 24s and we should be happy for them

Been at this many years and you do see the strength of the these different events, strengthen and weaken through the years. This is especially true now that covid has changed so much, and hopefully changes as we go back to normal. In years past I heard Nike 120 was much better than UA 150, but Nike fell off the map. As far as the Under Armour events, the underclass games always had the very best players on the regional teams. When they introduced the UA150, most of the top players that were on the regional teams never bothered with the 150, it was always the players who did not make the underclass teams who would attend this event every year. Again with so many things odd in this covid era, maybe the better players do end up attending the 150, and even if the players are not the top players, it still offers opportunity to get seen, filmed etc...

Ha! Another mom here too.
I’ve actually looked at a bunch of girls to see what their story is and all I’ve seen so far is a bunch of clubs NOT in top 10-20. Which is fine and good for them. Not competition to lose sleep over. It’s still a good way to get film but it’s not the top! If it were the top it would be dominated by a few certain areas and Robinson doesn’t want that. He wants people from everywhere. My D did it her first eligible yr and she was only 1 of 3 in her club to even apply. The next year everyone on her team applied-why not, it’s free! I’m in Maryland.

If you aren’t on a “top 20” team (I’m assuming your going by the us club team rankings) you can still be a top player. Not every incredible athlete decides to go to the biggest name teams.

Agree that Nike is another stellar event. It’s a great opportunity for these top players regardless. I think those who are bad mouthing the event are likely parents of kids who weren’t chosen.

Second this. There are plently of kids not on a top 20 team who could beat out players on those other teams as an individual

From what I’ve heard from my daughter a few YJ kids, a legacy kid, and two 91 kids.

The fact that two of those 91 kids made it is impressive in my opinion. There hasn’t been a lot of representation from the club at events like this. I think the shift in this clubs growth this year is due to the coach takeover by Tilts. She was mentioned a few times, but my daughter finally worked with her this week and was blown away by her and how much she had never been taught before meeting with her. It was eye opening. It is true what they say about how a coach can really make a team.

I’m not sure if it was in this thread or another BOTC thread talking about this showcase but someone said that if you play for a top club you’ll make it. Elevate and 91 aren’t typically top clubs, but have some top players. I don’t personally think highly of Kotowski and the program, but it is further proof that talent isn’t just coming from one program on the Island.

Also just want to point out that those saying the selection process isn’t legit should find a coach that is advocating for them the way Tilts and a few Long Island coaches who seem to be changing the 2024 class. The amount of other parents considering leaving their current teams solely to play for this one coach is insane. I think that those girls making it was just another reason there’s been all this buzz.

Maybe just an opinion. Regardless, big congratulations are in order for all girls who made it even if parents are in here making it seem like it isn’t a victory. All of the kids representing Long Island should be celebrated.

If you have a good coach whose making you better and advocating for you the opportunities will be there.

NIKE 120 is a much better event. Coaches recommend players and it was legit. They do a better job. You really only need to do one. We passed on the UA150 last year...

From what I’ve heard from my daughter a few YJ kids, a legacy kid, and two 91 kids.

The fact that two of those 91 kids made it is impressive in my opinion. There hasn’t been a lot of representation from the club at events like this. I think the shift in this clubs growth this year is due to the coach takeover by Tilts. She was mentioned a few times, but my daughter finally worked with her this week and was blown away by her and how much she had never been taught before meeting with her. It was eye opening. It is true what they say about how a coach can really make a team.

I’m not sure if it was in this thread or another BOTC thread talking about this showcase but someone said that if you play for a top club you’ll make it. Elevate and 91 aren’t typically top clubs, but have some top players. I don’t personally think highly of Kotowski and the program, but it is further proof that talent isn’t just coming from one program on the Island.

Also just want to point out that those saying the selection process isn’t legit should find a coach that is advocating for them the way Tilts and a few Long Island coaches who seem to be changing the 2024 class. The amount of other parents considering leaving their current teams solely to play for this one coach is insane. I think that those girls making it was just another reason there’s been all this buzz.

Maybe just an opinion. Regardless, big congratulations are in order for all girls who made it even if parents are in here making it seem like it isn’t a victory. All of the kids representing Long Island should be celebrated.


Agreed good coaching can do wonders for kids getting chances to be seen

Can someone give me more info about Tilts and her team? We are among the families looking to switch for our daughter to play for her. Any information about her as a person, contact information, reviews, or social media info? Would love to know more about her before leaving our Jesters team.

She played for Quinnipiac and broke a bunch of school records and was ranked top 5 for a year & she played for and coaches for 91. According to her social media she didn’t start playing lacrosse until high school .

Sam trains my daughter whose a 24 on another team. After this year, we are highly considering trying out for 91 only if she’s our coach. She is a teacher in Brooklyn and a really great role model for my daughter....she started coaching as a freshman in college and followed her teams through high school. Very loyal coach and person and my daughter LOVES her. If we don’t train with her every week my daughter is completely bummed. Great person.

Agree and would add that back when kids were committing in the 9th grade many of the top players didn't have to go to this type of event (some still chose to attend). It is not like being selected to the Under Armour Senior Game and it is different from earning a spot on a UA Underclass Team but I think if you are trying to get recruited / committed it is probably worth doing if you can get selected. If your daughter is not a Top 50 type of player you have to find ways to get coaches to see her and actually look at her. Don't let the naysayers and the haters influence you, if you listen to them you will not do anything. If your daughter does get selected be sure have her let the entire coach staff at the schools she is interested in know that your will be competing at the event. Coaches want players who want to attend their school and play for their program.
Good luck to all.

If you play for a big team in a hotbed area, you should be doing all of the big HS (age) tournaments. Coaches can see you there. Or your wellness/ athletics Insta account!

This age group does have some talented kids, just to spread out over so many programs, there is not a strong team among them. Players who could be a solid middle of the road player on the top team are leaving programs to go be the top players on lesser teams.

Except those “solid middle of the road” players who left, are better or just as good as girls that are on what I am assuming you are referring to the YJA team. You do know they have been beaten by other LI 2023 teams. The top girls on Jesters, Legacy, and TG would also be the top girls on YJ. Now, I do agree with you that if all those girls were on the same team, it would be pretty special. That is unless a daddy coach incapable of unbiased coaching gets involved.

Truer words have never been spoken on this board. Coach Tilts is excellent. 91, on the girl's side, not so much. Hopefully, Coach Tilts will eventually end up at a club that is actually invested in their girl's program. No girls "director" or coach ever stays at 91 for long.

Both YJ and TG have handled MD teams plenty of times. Good rivalry

She’s been there for nine years and played for them I don’t think she’s going anywhere. The girl was offered two other club jobs and a college job and still chose 91. The girls side is doing much better and I’d imagine her loyalty would only stretch so far if they weren’t working with her in a way she appreciated.

Not sure how you expect anybody to answer this about your anonymous daughter - unless you're looking for feedback on how loyal they are to returning girls or if they know of any girls who aren't returning and will therefore leave open spots.

Very fair. I guess I don’t know what exactly I’m asking but I’ll try and rephrase. I think I’m more so asking how picky the coach is with who they bring in? Like is he/she willing to see new players or are they completely closed off from giving other kids a chance? Do they have more than one team for the age group? Do the girls plan to all return?

Coach is extremely loyal to the kids and the kids are equally as loyal to her. Many parents have spoken to one another and will play anywhere our coach is. She has made it clear that kids who try our get a fair shot because nothing in life in handed to us and she reiterates it to the kids that sports teams are another “life lesson” as she calls them. I don’t think there is a clear cut answering without knowing your daughters skill level, but again she is fair but also know that our kids don’t plan to take their foot off the gas pedal. We love the program and hope kids try out. If they are skilled they deserve a chance.

Coach refuses to leave the kids under any circumstances and is respected by the program. My intel on this team is that these kids have no interest in leaving no matter how hard other teams push to poach their top kids. The program will add as many teams as they are able to based on what I see at younger grade levels.

Only one team at this age group. There are also no teams at all at either the 2023 or 2025 level so they can't combine grades to make combo teams or anything. Possible they would just expand the roster or maybe some girls will leave (although obviously from this thread the parents seem very committed).

Only one team at this age group. There are also no teams at all at either the 2023 or 2025 level so they can't combine grades to make combo teams or anything. Possible they would just expand the roster or maybe some girls will leave (although obviously from this thread the parents seem very committed).

91 bought the bandits so they will have a 23 and 25 team as well as 3 2024 teams.

Not sure how you expect anybody to answer this about your anonymous daughter - unless you're looking for feedback on how loyal they are to returning girls or if they know of any girls who aren't returning and will therefore leave open spots.

Are any of the Brookhaven Bandit teams competitive that they bring over?? Who do you compare the 23 team to locally? My guess is they would be like a YJ C team, but I honestly don't know who they are and who they have played?

Do they really plan to merge them? That will be very difficult. I thought at least short term each was going to continue operating seperately with their own brands, tryouts, etc.

9D1 had one of the best 25 teams locally and nationally a few years back, but a few of their best players got poached by yellow jackets and the team fell apart and no longer exists.

Tilts sound talented so I expect the same will happen because the organization doesn’t care about girls lacrosse and is a disservice to her players.

Also, let’s be clear and with all due respect to her efforts but her team would lose to theYJB team by 10.

91 is “investing” on the girls side. The girls for last 2 years have same exact winter academy as the boys. They have a few competitive grades and if they keep at it will only get better. Not everyone wants to play for YJ

Thanks Brian!

And why did you do that , because of your daughter and her fiends? Daddy coaches are one thing, but a Daddy owner?

Run away, they don’t have a single team that could compete with a YJ B team.

91 never had a competitive 2025 team. That was YJ Spallina and 91 2025 wasn’t in the same ballpark. Not even YJ B.

I also detest the whole poaching concept, if the league and the coach are offering an environment where the kids are growing and developing, no one leaves. Case and point, Tilts. All other examples are parents who have FOMO and jump ship. New coaches see that from a mile away, especially if you’ve done that more that once. It’s usually the parents who thinks Suzie is better than she is.

I don’t think any of these kids are leaving from what I’ve heard about this coach and changes to the program. contrary to popular belief, this team does have talent and the top players are clearly happy. Like the previous comment says, kids who jump ship at this point probably think the grass is greener and will surely be in for a rude awakening. Kudos to 91 for supporting this coach and her kids. While my kid isn’t on this team, as a parent whose kid is not part of yellow jackets it’s nice to see support for other programs.

If I was a bandit parent I’d be jumping for joy to move to 91. It’s clearly a better established organization. This group is for 24 players, so if I was a bandits parent on her I’d jump ship from the 24 bandits mommy and daddy run team and see if 91 has any open spots before the end of summer. At the very least they’ll end up on a team with a coach who has a very good reputation and a program that will back their coaches over anyone new coming in I’d imagine

Nailed it! While you're at it Dad, stop sending the girls to the MyLaxMafia tournaments. If you want to be an "A" team, you can't play lousy 91 "B" tournaments where 91 double dips all the time.

Most of these clubs are going to the same tournaments as other Long Island teams. Not sure how any club is really sending kids to “B” tournaments.

This is a good question: here's my 2 cents; it depends on what you want. If you plan to end at high school/varsity then go where you will play and get good coaching. The latter is so important. That being said, if you play for a bad team sometimes you will develop bad habits that don't really translate well to lacrosse. For example: ball hogging hero lacrosse. Doesn't really work as the competition gets better, but if you are the best girl on the team and the team is bad, you will be asked to do it all and play all game long. Sure you play, but bad habits develop.

Want to play college? Well, big name program helps. BUT I think it still about what you can do for yourself in showcases and camps as opposed to playing on A team or B team or C team or whatever. In the end, make sure your girl is happy. Sometimes being just part of a winning team is what will bring back the memories of having a good time when they are older. Put her on a weaker team where she plays more might be good for playing time, but if you lose all the time it's hard to break bad habits that develop both in terms of winning mentality and the habits as I mentioned above. Good luck

My kids team played 91 this weekend and got crushed- no name needed as I don’t want to hurt my daughters team. I was excited to see her coach due to the threads and seeing her training everywhere recently. I was not disappointed and can confirm everything said on this thread about her. There was not a minute she wasn’t coaching. She was hard on the kids but for every fix this comment was a why behind it. It was also clear she was trying to handle herself with grace as her kids racked up points. You could see her calling more plays, asking her kids to practice different types of shots, and more. She also took the time to clap for my daughters team and even call out numbers from our roster to congratulate them on good plays. I understand that some teams may be better than hers, but after seeing what so many have said first hand I get why everyone seems to be flocking towards her even if she coaches for a program that isn’t one of notorious stature. Not sure that this post makes any difference in the grand scheme of it all but I felt like the team deserves to be recognized when it’s due

Big program gives a good name but less individual attention and care. If you find a coach who will fight for there players it is just as helpful as a big club and can be balanced out. Play where your kid is happiest at the end of it all this isn’t just about college it’s about there love for the game. If they ply somewhere they feel like another spot on a roster they could easily fall away from the sport

We played them as well and did not get destroyed, but had played them this fall when the coaching change had just been made. Compared to this fall the team looked much better. My daughter is staying put with her team because she’s been there forever and it’s comfortable for her, but I can understand why others would want to join that team after the growth they’ve had in such a short time.

Find a program that doesn't have a daddy coach and looks to develop the players not just use them as tools to pad his D's stats.

Put her on a weaker team where she plays more might be good for playing time, but if you lose all the time it's hard to break bad habits that develop both in terms of winning mentality and the habits as I mentioned above. Good luck


Big program gives a good name but less individual attention and care. If you find a coach who will fight for there players it is just as helpful as a big club and can be balanced out. Play where your kid is happiest at the end of it all this isn’t just about college it’s about there love for the game. If they ply somewhere they feel like another spot on a roster they could easily fall away from the sport

Find a program that doesn't have a daddy coach and looks to develop the players not just use them as tools to pad his D's stats.

Pick either a mommy/daddy coach or some hungover college kid in flip-flops holding a coffee.

Old post but YJ O’Sullivan doesn’t get any better until better kids are added. You can be the best coach in the world but if the kids don’t care or don’t want to get better there’s only so much you can do. They have the same competition as the other 24’s. The goal is to get kids better who want to get better. If those girls who are decent on that team want to be seen in the long run, they have access to the same camps, clinics as everyone else. You don’t need to be on the best club team to be seen.

This is a good question: here's my 2 cents; it depends on what you want. If you plan to end at high school/varsity then go where you will play and get good coaching. The latter is so important. That being said, if you play for a bad team sometimes you will develop bad habits that don't really translate well to lacrosse. For example: ball hogging hero lacrosse. Doesn't really work as the competition gets better, but if you are the best girl on the team and the team is bad, you will be asked to do it all and play all game long. Sure you play, but bad habits develop.

Flip flops and coffee mean you’re a bad coach?

So what you’re saying is is that they should have 26-28 kids like the A-C team does and never get to play? Why not just bail on the dad coach and move off of the team? Seems there are plenty of other teams who are improving without adding on ten more kids to an already large roster.

Reply with reviews on your current team your kid is on:
Name of team
Roster size
Review of coaches and club
What have they done for you this fall in terms of tournaments, communication, practices, etc?

Something odd is going on in this thread. The thread has turned into a Team 91/Coach Tilts infomercial. Then out of no where the attacks on the YJ O’Sullivan team and the Daddy coach. Seems kinda odd. Is this coach and team getting all this play cause they are in need of players. Little known fact in the fall the Coach Tilts 91 team played the YJ O’Sullivan team twice full field with refs and got crushed both times yes both times by the 4th YJ team with a Daddy coach. To make matters worse Coach Tilts even brought in a YJ player who she trains from one of the better teams to play for her on both occasions. So before you all go crazy attacking other teams and praising Coaches know what your paying for.

What I meant by “adding” is to replace players who leave the team with better players who can make the team better. Tell me how you make a team better besides coaching? The top teams are always so good because they attract the top talent. Coaches don’t have to work that hard because the kids at that level of play are doing a lot of work on their own to get better.

Definitely not saying that the team should be filled with 28-30 kids. There’s nothing wrong with being a dad coach, or a coach who is still in college. YJ O’sullivan team holds their own against competition within their bracket. As it was previously posted in this group, O’sullivan’s team beat the 91 tilts team that everyone in this group is so crazy about.

I’m not really sure why we’re tearing down this 14 year old team.

^^^^^^ YUP. And it’s funny because Tilts is doing her own advertising on this page anonymously. I’ll wait for all the parents who are hyping up her trainings and coaching to actually sit on the sideline and watch her coach her 91 team. Great person and she’s enthusiastic and loves kids but she pretty much only coaches the goalie. The rest of the kids have no idea where they are supposed to be otherwise. She might be a great trainer I have no idea but strictly on the field game-like, is a big weakness of hers. Do some research before you waste your money playing on that team.

I’ll let you guys see for yourself though smile

Hi I’m one of the posters who complimented her and her kids a few days ago. I don’t have my daughters playing for her nor have I ever spoken to her, I was simply replying to what was already said based on what I had seen during play.

Long Island has a talented 2024 class. I wouldn’t take offense to anything being said about any team or person on here. If you look back this website has been a pool of insults for many years. Very little positive is said, and when it is someone always comes in and tries to ruin it.

How many players are on this team? Are you suggesting that in order to get better they need to replace kids? Coaches can easily work with the talent they have on that team.

If I didn’t think it could hurt my daughters name, I’d come off anonymous and share out who I was but I’d rather not risk the drama revolving around my daughter. My daughter is not a goalie but trains with Tilts. I feel the need to defend her as I have written posts on here about her.

My daughter has learned so much from this coach and it’s upsetting to see people attack her for coaching her goalies, being enthusiastic, and loving the sport. I’m sure if you were able to get game film or watch one of her training sessions you’d quickly realize that the claims in the post I’m replying to are completely inaccurate. When she trains my daughter she is nothing but supportive of her and her team and has never once mentioned anything negative about other programs or teams. If anything, she’s offered to fill the gaps for us in things we felt were missing from our current program. My daughter has found a true mentor in Coach Sam and its a shame that this community feels the need to bring down others.

My daughter is a YJ 2023 who trains with her but I’ve been following this forum as it pops up as active and I’m nosey. With all due respect, she doesn’t need to promote herself. She has plenty of players and kids she trains who clearly will do it for her because she deserves it. She’s a great girl and unlike a lot of the coaches and owners on Long Island is actually good hearted and cares about the kids. While there are plenty of people to attack for their choices in the lacrosse world she isn’t one of them.

When did being a college player coach or a parent coach become a bad thing?

No one is bad mouthing her. But this thread has turned in a Coach Tilts forum of training and accolades and recruitment for her team. Then the bashing of 14 year old girls and a YJ team which Coach Tilts got beat by twice by a touchdown both times. So before anyone wants to gush over her or her team and bash other teams they should know her team can’t beat the 4th YJ team.

They make excuses and they blame coaches, club directors, politics etc.... they think their daughter is a high level player and any time she is not recognized as such they blame it on something other than reality.

So accurate! Everyone wants to blame everyone but their own kid these days

Little known fact in the fall the Coach Tilts 91 team played the YJ O’Sullivan team twice full field with refs and got crushed both times yes both times by the 4th YJ team with a Daddy coach. To make matters worse Coach Tilts even brought in a YJ player who she trains from one of the better teams to play for her on both occasions. So before you all go crazy attacking other teams and praising Coaches know what your paying for.

^^^^^^ YUP. And it’s funny because Tilts is doing her own advertising on this page anonymously. I’ll wait for all the parents who are hyping up her trainings and coaching to actually sit on the sideline and watch her coach her 91 team. Great person and she’s enthusiastic and loves kids but she pretty much only coaches the goalie. The rest of the kids have no idea where they are supposed to be otherwise. She might be a great trainer I have no idea but strictly on the field game-like, is a big weakness of hers. Do some research before you waste your money playing on that team.

I’ll let you guys see for yourself though smile

If I didn’t think it could hurt my daughters name, I’d come off anonymous and share out who I was but I’d rather not risk the drama revolving around my daughter. My daughter is not a goalie but trains with Tilts. I feel the need to defend her as I have written posts on here about her.

My daughter has learned so much from this coach and it’s upsetting to see people attack her for coaching her goalies, being enthusiastic, and loving the sport. I’m sure if you were able to get game film or watch one of her training sessions you’d quickly realize that the claims in the post I’m replying to are completely inaccurate. When she trains my daughter she is nothing but supportive of her and her team and has never once mentioned anything negative about other programs or teams. If anything, she’s offered to fill the gaps for us in things we felt were missing from our current program. My daughter has found a true mentor in Coach Sam and its a shame that this community feels the need to bring down others.

My daughter is a YJ 2023 who trains with her but I’ve been following this forum as it pops up as active and I’m nosey. With all due respect, she doesn’t need to promote herself. She has plenty of players and kids she trains who clearly will do it for her because she deserves it. She’s a great girl and unlike a lot of the coaches and owners on Long Island is actually good hearted and cares about the kids. While there are plenty of people to attack for their choices in the lacrosse world she isn’t one of them.


Agreed. Those who know her, play for her, or work with her know what’s up. If you don’t believe what many have said about her on here you should talk to parents on her team or parents of kids who she trains if you know any. I’m 100% positive none of us would have a single bad thing to say either on a forum or face to face.
No one is bad mouthing her. But this thread has turned in a Coach Tilts forum of training and accolades and recruitment for her team. Then the bashing of 14 year old girls and a YJ team which Coach Tilts got beat by twice by a touchdown both times. So before anyone wants to gush over her or her team and bash other teams they should know her team can’t beat the 4th YJ team.

Neutral party here: I think that because this is anonymous it’s easy to accuse people of different things easily. The posts about this coach could be true. From reading back on this thread and following it it’s clear she came onto this team this fall and has made a positive impact on them and the lacrosse community. If you look at her social media, you’ll clearly see she coaches many high school and middle school level kids from multiple age groups especially the freshman class. I think it would be foolish to say that they are working with her or their isn’t some level of talent behind her coaching. Even if her team lost a game, which all of the teams have at some point, I don’t think that is a negative reflection on her as she just started with that team. Their prior coach, Guedo, had the team before her.

In terms of O’Sullivan: I’m sure the team is great with much potential. I think to place blame on who exactly is stirring the pot about the team is hard to do, again because this is all anonymous. I’m sure they have won and lost games just like 91, YJ Wiener, YJ Kildare, Top Guns, and Legacy. I don’t think that basing opinions of O Sully from of a few games is fair especially in the fall season is terribly accurate.

This thread is not meant to be used to bad mouth directors, clubs, kids, or coaches. It’s meant to support.

So for those giving coaches credit when deserved, please keep doing so. I think given the fact that this thread is constantly filled with negative conversations it’s nice to point out whose doing a good job. For those trying to hurt a young woman’s reputation or talk negatively about teams of 14&15 year olds it may be time to find a new website to post on.

I forgot that you’re not allowed to have your own opinion of a coach. Not everyone is going to agree on Tilts coaching and that’s fine, there was definitely no bad mouthing going on. As long as your kid is getting better while working with a coach, that’s what counts.

It just seems odd to me that we are ok with letting our kids play for people like Andrew Smith but are so quick to jump to negative conclusions on someone most of us have never met. I don’t know the chick but I’m sure she’s a great coach by how far her reach of players goes.

The goal is to get kids better who want to get better. If those girls who are decent on that team want to be seen in the long run, they have access to the same camps, clinics as everyone else. You don’t need to be on the best club team to be seen.

So what you’re saying is is that they should have 26-28 kids like the A-C team does and never get to play? Why not just bail on the dad coach and move off of the team? Seems there are plenty of other teams who are improving without adding on ten more kids to an already large roster.

Whoever this anonymous YJ parent is... please don’t suggest to bring a bunch of new kids onto our team. Let them play with the numbers they have.

It’s clear a YJ Sully kids parent is on here strirring the pot. Gotta love parents trying to promote their club and team by making themselves look like absolute psychos.

Hahahaha wait you think I would make comments without knowing her? I’ve coached with her, did trainings with her etc. if anyone actually read my post, I said absolutely nothing bad about her trainings or her for that matter. I made one critique about her GAME time coaching. That is it.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I’m so happy she’s making kids feel confident and even getting them better as athletes. She puts tons of work in and no one can take that away from her. She’s busted her butt for these kids.

There’s tons of other things we can talk about in this thread that don’t involve Tilts or YJ o’sullivan

I’ve been a parent of multiple 91 players on both the girls and boys side and know her well. If you’ve coached with her than that limits whoever you are to a 91 employee as she hasn’t worked anywhere else except with two of her friends, one of whom used to coach the 2024 team before she took it over. From knowing her the last six years I can also tell you that she never privately trains kids with anyone else. All of the private lessons she does have been solo and she’s only had two assistant coaches at 91 for as long as I’ve known her. So unless you’re one of those two young ladies she’s worked with, you’re clearly a liar. If you need any evidence that she coaches her butt of during games and has a very clear understanding of the game, sit behind her during a game or listen to game film that hasn’t had the volume removed.

If you have worked with her, I’m curious when. Was it when she was 19 and a freshman in college or recently as an adult.

My guess is you’re a coach from another club looking to ruin a growing teams reputation. This group is to discuss things 2024 related, which she and O’Sullivan are both related to. You are entitled to your own opinion but it’s clear as day that for your one critique there are numerous people stating the opposite. Whatever your hidden agenda is, I disagree with your statement.

Clearly I am bias because I know her well and know that your comment is not accurate at all, but again maybe you don’t know her as well as you think you do.

Who cares! 91 girls is and always has been a weak program despite having many excellent coaches over the years. These are just facts. No matter how good a coach is, you can't expect to be competitive when the girls have no athletic talent. Any girls that do have talent leave do to frustration.

Not tearing down kids. Stating facts. I would never shell out thousands of dollars for a weak travel program leading to a dead end. There are plenty of town/PAL teams if a kid just wants to play for fun. If your kid doesn't make and get decent playing time on a true "A" or high level "B" team, you are wasting your time and money. 91 is a C or D level program in all age groups.

There are 20 - 25 high end girls per grade each year from Long Island, these are the athletes who receive offers from the Top 10 - 15 programs. The majority of these players have several options (top college programs) and most choose to attend one those programs. Approximately 100 girls go on to play DI lacrosse at one of the many other DI programs and many more girls go on to play at DII, DIII and Club Programs. By your logic unless you are one of the very select “Top 20 -25” girls who can go play at the select 10 or so college programs you should just pack it in and not bother playing because once you go beyond those top college programs the teams talent fall off dramatically.
If you pull the parents out of it, this is the greatest thing that ever happened to female athletes from Long Island. Tremendous opportunity out there at many many schools for student athletes of all abilities ( both athletic and academic abilities).

Love this. Also the fact that lacrosse isn’t just about college. Parents who make it all college no fun have kids who burn out. Kids who aren’t Top A team players can still play D.

Actually, you are. Coach Tilts is great. No argument there. 91 girls is a sham. The problem is the organization, not the coach. You'll learn the hard way. In two years, you see I'm right. You're going to have to do all the work and spend all the money to get your daughter recruited. Then, 91 will happily post it on their Instagram account and list your daughter's commitment on their website. Good luck to you and your daughter.

You’re incorrect but I’m not going to share what they’ve already done for our team with recruiting as freshman as it will just help others. Thanks for your input though.

Is you planning to make the move? Is your daughter a player? Any thoughts on the direction that you are leaning? Don't know if any players are moving clubs. at this point it aybe a bit late to switch clubs in terms of getting enough playing time being that had these kids on the team for quite some time. Wil the coach play your daughter over another player who has been with club for years!? Possibly, let her tryout it certainly can't hurt!!
The only thing that may come into play is if the coach or coaches hear that you are shopping other clubs MAY affect how the coach views and plays your daughter.. this doesn't apply to the majority of coaches, but I've heard one or two horror stories
Of course you have to do what's best for your daughter! I wish you and your daughter nothing but luck !!

I think it depends on the coach. Some coaches take a roster where they feel comfortable with equal playing time while others take a huge roster and bench the lesser players. It’s a conversation to have before making the move. It also is not to late to switch teams. This year is probably the last chance to switch if you’re considering it.

Anyone else notice the kids picked from the lax on showcase are the kids they train or who work with their affiliates such as crease beast? Looks like another political group of women running showcases and trainings.

The parents trying to say O’Sullivan is any good based off a few scrimmages is ridiculous. This team cannot compete at a high level. Those kids should run from their D team ranking.

Most of the clubs mentioned have gotten new players.. let's see what kind of difference it makes each for each team.

There is one team in particular that is definitely gotten stronger!

Weiner is currently 0-3 and Kildare is 1-2 and yes they play each other so somebody has to win.

You are exactly right. Pay to play/promote. Proof comes out in a game not just some hype videos on social media.

Hopefully they're all getting better as teams and individuals. Isn't that the goal? Everything else is just noise.

Unfortunately, I think most of us would disagree. I'm sure the kids are great, but the 24 team is less than average and the program is questionable. I've heard some very bad stuff about the coach /owner on the field and off. Anybody know what's going on over. And what colleges are going to Recruit girls there knowing coach/owner past? Not really sure what went down with him. I heard some nasty comments about his coaching, but his past? Does anyone know?
We were all told to Google him, but can't believe everything that is on the internet. Can somebody explain?

They are playing against great older competition. Did you really expect them to roll? Wiener is missing a few top players as well. Only embarrassing thing is how the two parent coaches play their daughters the whole game. Kind of like an blank to the rest of the team. Guess it’s expected from the mommy coach whose kid really shouldn’t be on the team in the first place.

I’m assuming you’re referring to top guns? Andrew Smith got a DUI. I’ve also noticed the 24 team looks very weak

It’s crazy to me that people still send their kids to yellow jackets knowing how it’s run

In case there was any misunderstanding they were talking about Jesters coach and his club. Google the name. Not everything on the internet is true, so take it with a grain of salt. The talk around town is that the 23 is the only age that's halfway decent.
As for the teams as mentioned, above Jesters 24 is by far weakest of those mentioned above.

How do you know that? Sounds like someone was doing some serious fishing with their post. People will always find something wrong with a coach, TG, YJ, Jesters. Not a Jesters parent but the spin on this page is crazy.

So after the drama a few days ago over if Tilts was as great as people said, I went digging for game film and through their Instagram. I really disagree with the statement about game time IQ. My daughter and I watched a solid fifteen minutes of their practice that they live streamed. She has friends on the team and is considering moving and has been trying to see what it would be like. Every drill the coach set up was well explained and the reason behind each move was explicitly stated. There were multiple times she stopped kids in the drill to explain why they needed to do something differently. She seems solid, but an opinion I suppose. More importantly the girls were smiling and focus but clearly happy. That’s what matters when all is said and done, no? Nice seeing kids who are being pushed while still loving every step.

You really think the girl would be dense enough to post about herself after being accused of doing so? I just posted this and am definitely not a young woman...unless I’ve been misled about my gender for the past 44 years. Oh and by the way the kids looked pretty good and even if they didn’t what do you gain from being nasty to a group of 14 year olds?

Or it’s actually parents, LIKE ME, who actually have a child who is trained by her who are just trying to help other people find a coach whose going to do for their kids what she’s done for line. How obscene that Id post about her. I can’t even imagine how insane I must be to say something kind on here...

Some individual talent but zero team chemistry also jesters has no track record for recruiting. G luck to those kids

For Jesters recruiting, hard to have a track record without a 2021 team and only one 2022 team. Jesters do not have a strong 2022 team -- they only have 1 team at that age and they call it Pink, which is their B team designation (Black/Pink/White). So would not expect to see much in recruiting.

Jesters 2023 Black team is ranked as Top 20 club (US Club Lacrosse), so next year will be telling. The 2023 class will be a good case for seeing how the new directors, who were hired this year, do.

Agree. Only concern is that they got too big too fast and I don’t think they were prepared. I think in a few years they’ll be a stronger program. It takes a few years to build a good track record and name for yourself as a program, so I’d suspect their middle schoolers to be the first to really benefit from the program.

They are a Massapequa club team. Pequa always has a few good athletes, I think they will have trouble being competitive with the bigger clubs. Their '23 team is only competitive because of the TG transfer (one of the best girls in the grade). Coaches daughter and one other will get recruited to good programs, the rest will disappear into lax oblivion. Not a top club, maybe 4th ranked on LI

who cares what tier your team is on. Unfortunately all you crazy parents care about is being on the top team and watching your kid sit on the bench. How about being on a team where you get on the field. Unless you brainwashed your kid that its all about the team. If there sitting on travel prob gonna sit in college. Get with it and enjoy the game where you can watch your kid play and not console on three hour ride home. Before you know it there stick is in garage collecting dusk.

Coaches daughter and one other will get recruited to good programs, the rest will disappear into lax oblivion. Not a top club, maybe 4th ranked on LI

Absolutely a 2nd or 3rd tier team in the 23 age group on the island.

who cares what tier your team is on. Unfortunately all you crazy parents care about is being on the top team and watching your kid sit on the bench. How about being on a team where you get on the field. Unless you brainwashed your kid that its all about the team. If there sitting on travel prob gonna sit in college. Get with it and enjoy the game where you can watch your kid play and not console on three hour ride home. Before you know it there stick is in garage collecting dusk.

Yes! Perfectly stated! Thank you!


I agree, your daughter should be on the best possible team that she can be a contributor and be impactful. If it happens to be a tier 2 team, that's fine, at least she will be a focal point and improve her craft. If she gets so much better that she can be a producer and see quality minutes on a better team, then maybe you make the jump. Be realistic, and remember you would know if she could start for YJ; put them in positions to get better and have fun, not for you to say your daughter is on the top team.

So the Director of the Jesters is running a rogue team? That can’t be good for the Jesters program if she needs to get kids from other programs in order to have a competitive team.

It’s a pick up team. If it were only kids from Jesters it would JESTERS. I don’t see the problem with anyone wanting to mix it up and play with different kids. can only make kids better.

The problem is that you have Director from Jesters running a rogue team. It would be no problem if it was a parent. You would never see Carol Rose running a rogue team too much pride in her organization.

In the LI Lacrosse world, where sometimes It seems more about the $$$s and selfishness, It’s nice to see a group/tribe of girls get together and play together for no other reason than to have fun and get better! No matter what club they play for. No one making a profit on that team!

They actually have fun playing together and it shows. It’s not a dog eat dog mentality. It makes them remember why they loved the game so much in the first place. Some of the organized club stuff has lost the joy in playing the game! Plus, at this age when they go off to showcases/camps/colleges, they will be playing with girls other than their club team girls.

Everything is fine except the coach shouldn't be a Director of a club. It creates a conflict of interest and poaching comes into play.

You people are fools.. who cares? we're talking about 14 year old girls playing some lacrosse. Not to mention that by the time they are 21 or 22 they're sticks will be in storage. We're not talking EYBL basketball where there are full scholarships and multi million dollar professional contracts to think about. Everyone just chill!!

You seem a little angry bro. It’s a pick up team with kids from all over. They don’t need you to like or approve of them.
I keep hearing about poaching, no one can poach a player.
If that player is unhappy at their current league that’s their motivation, not a pick up team. The things people say on this page makes zero sense. Regarding talent, I remember that team doing pretty well over the summer and fall. Someone just sounds sour.

In a more positive note which I'm sure will be critiqued by our conspiracy theory dads, I also took the chance on Tilts and sent my kid to her. My daughter came home saying she learned more with this coach in an hour than she did with any coach she's ever worked with. She also trained with a daughter of another top teams coach. They were randomly put together for an advanced group. If top programs with A team coaches are willing to send their daughters to her, I'm pretty confident in my choice....plus hearing how excited my daughter was about the sport again had me sold. Huge supporter of her at this point and grateful to the original posters about her on this site. So if you are on here reading this, THANK YOU.

I don’t know who was not “deemed good enough to play” but we played them in the fall and they were very good. Some girls were actually exceptionally good. I think some of them might have been from other clubs, YJ and TG. People who either talk to other parents about the abilities of a few girls, or takes the time to tear down other kids in their own club have more insecurities than this page can handle. I hope we get the chance to play them again to see how our team has improved.
Someone on this page is very afraid of this team and club director, it’s very obvious. I think there should be more of these pick up teams. More fun for the kids. Meeting new kids and having more experiences.

Tribe is NOT a Jesters team, it is a pick up team of girls committed to the game of lax, friends and teammates.
Stop complaining and go find an opportunity for YOUR daughter to play more ball if that’s what she wants, but stop with the temper tantrum. And your reliable “loyal” sources mean nothing when it’s all anonymous!

Here are the FACTS. Tribe began to practice as a team in January 2020. The team did not have try outs as it was put together by parents of girls who have known and played with and against each other for years on Long Island. It was meant to be, and still is, a team for the girls to play hard, develop as players and have some fun. The coach of Tribe, who also happens to be the director for Jesters, was hired by the parents to coach the team so that they could avoid any parent coaching conflicts of interest. The current director of Jesters joined that organization AFTER the formation of Tribe, in May 2020. Another fact: Tribe roster includes girls from YJ Weiner, YJ Ramos, YJ Kildare, YJ Spallina, YJ Lomo, Legacy, Jesters, Elevate and Liberty. It is NOT a Jesters team. In fact, the directors of these other clubs are fully aware of their girls' participation and encourage it. And none of the girls intend on leaving their current club team because of the involvement of the Jesters director as a coach. Again, she was their coach long BEFORE she joined Jesters. For many of the girls on Tribe, she has been training them for years. So please stop the rumor spreading when so much of what is being said is just not, factually, correct.

They’re starting their own team. I think it’s pretty shady that they trained all these kids preaching that they are just a training facility and now are already asking my daughter who trains with them if she’ll try out. They also only have one recruiting age group and no one who would be ahead of 2024 class other than the 2022s. The 2022 class is getting recruited, so props to them for making that happen, but it makes no sense to send your kid to a completely new program in their prime recruiting years. If they were younger , it totally makes sense. To send them into a team of kids who have never played together in a program that’s only ever had one recruiting class is bonkers. You’d be potentially gambling your child’s entire recruiting future. If you’re going to move at this age, move to a club that already has a well established group not to a completely new team it’s truly foolish.

Agreed. They’re good trainers, but a club? Really? Seems like inflated egos after a training that only exists because kids were bored during covid.

All social media hype. That’s their game and they are very good at it. They post 5 vids a day of mediocre training sessions. Ask around regarding who trains there, what teams those girls are from, and see if your kid will be elevated by the level of training offered. I’m guessing for most it’s going to be no.

The tryouts are for a normal club team. The training is meant to be a supplement.

All social media hype. That’s their game and they are very good at it. They post 5 vids a day of mediocre training sessions. Ask around regarding who trains there, what teams those girls are from, and see if your kid will be elevated by the level of training offered. I’m guessing for most it’s going to be no.

This response is spot on. These girls made their money off quarantine just like so many of these lacrosse facilities now. They are doing a disservice to any 2024s they take.

Funny how one of these coaches was the flg 2024 coach and never showed up then bailed on the kids. Took on the coaching spot and never showed. Be careful who you put your faith in.

It's beyond hypocritical that they are becoming a club program when their whole training pitch is that they are club agnostic. They should spend more time developing their athletes than they do in editing their social media posts. I will say though that their trainings are pretty good although it's odd they only use tennis balls.

Agree with above posters that it'd be a crazy gamble to put your 2024 child on a laxon team that has zero recruiting experience or credentials with reputable colleges.

If you are looking to move your daughter now, let alone to an unproven team, you have to ask if she is even recruitable.

Their whole pitch has always been that they don’t want to be part of the club scene so it seems they are completely selling out on what they were preaching. Money changes people I guess.

I would imagine many have kids from all different clubs.
Lax on is a lot of smoke and not a lot of substance. Sometimes kids like to start fresh in a new training setting, but if you see what they push on IG, the aren’t reinventing the wheel by any stretch of the imagination. A 2024 team is downright laughable.
I think 2024 parents have been around the block enough that to see what’s going on here.

If you are on the top YJ team of course you wouldn't make the move. But if you are on a "B" team or Yellow Jackets "C" team they might be an option you look at. Seemed to work well for the 2022's that joined them last year as a good amount are going to Division 1 programs. Would those girls have gotten as much help from their prior clubs in the recruiting process had they stayed? I doubt it.

YJ B and C teams do not send their girls top schools. That’s only for A team players. Just as good to be on an A team for one of the other better clubs. Most important question at this juncture is whether your daughter is a contributing member of the team, or just a practice player.

Point is JS only plays fifteen girls and over commits like a lot of schools. Plus he has no problem adding transfers. You need to know this going in. Look at the girs who have transferred out in the last few years.

Be that as it may. The original point is that coaches don't care what club or team you play for. If they see something in you they like they have a conversation with you. The outcome is uncertain for everyone unless you have a crystal ball.

So many sheep stay on YJ. They keep paying the vig thinking it’s a ticket to a big scholarship. Only the top YJs A team players get the big scholarships. Even the lower players on the A team don’t make out as well as they make you believe with their social media posts. If you are on the B or C YJ team, there is a reason your daughter is there. Yes she will be recruited but it’s not going to be to a big time school with a big scholarship. If you’re realistic about that great. If not, wisen up!

Sorry, but It’s all artificial social media clout. Very cringeworthy. It’s just a popularity contest for those in non hotbed areas. In fact it think it’s run by an 18 year old kid in Indiana. If any girls from a local school here try to do it I’d really die inside for them. I’m in Baltimore.

I have read on here many times, "the only lists that really matter are the lists that the college coaches keep". That said, The Inside Lacrosse Young Gun Senior and Junior Rankings have proven to be pretty accurate, not necessarily the exact order but the players who have been ranked in the Top 30 - 40 usually go to the Top Programs and do very well.

It looks to me like it is based almost entirely from club director/coach input. I know they reached out to clubs for names. Number of spots allotted per club based loosely on club reputation.

What that does that mean. So if you train with Laxon you are trying not to get smoked by competition. Since when does trainings have competition. Why does it matter who coaches your daughter outside there club team. If your kid is comfortable with that trainer that’s all that matters. This page has become absurd. Now after kids and teams get crapped on we go after people who do trainings. Get a life! All you people talking about only A players get top schools who cares. You not getting full rides and little Susie will leave that big name college with a huge student loan debt and probably like most who aren’t top 5 on that A team just ride the bench. But Mommy and Daddy can wear that college sweatshirt and pump out there chests proudly. After college there’s no more lacrosse unless you are a name like KO.

Hahahahah and you have Windsor on the thread defending laxon. It’s laughable that she read this and once again made a social media post solely about 2024s because of this thread. She also CLEARLY has her 2022 team writing in the comments since every kid is saying the same thing. If you fall for this stunt you’re as ridiculous as them for thinking that this isn’t a disservice to these kids.

Doesn’t even matter if you’re name is KO, or TC. Why would anyone get a degree from a good school to graduate and give lax lessons? Oh, they get to play on team USA which is a joke. Us lax takes our money to fund these teams that play no competition and nobody ares about!

Anyone that has an ounce of lacrosse knowledge laughs hysterically at the lax on training videos. It is cringeworthy but that’s what makes it work. She has all the low level players that do not know any better The more they post the more ridiculous

Elevate 24 has gone down hill. Surprised the entire club hasn’t folded

The Laxon Ladies should just take over the Elevate program! That program has horrendous training and they could help them out there. Seems like that Elevate director doesn’t really care anyways to train his teams! Just throws them out on the fields with inadequate training and skills! At least LaxOn seem like they care about actually training the girls! Could be good opportunity for them to merge together!!

This is a funny way to market ladies... we don’t want to play for you. If we leave we’re going to a club that actually has had more than one recruiting group. Simmer down.

This is funny. Whenever anyone asks about a good program there is always a troll. Kilgus' training is lightyears ahead of laxon, that being said, not every kid can hang in Kilgus' sessions so laxon might be good for some.

Kilgus shouldn't be defined as training its more free play even they coaches scrimmage with the girls.

My kid does kilgus training and my kid cant wait to go again. The kids love it! They do all kinds of different traing and yes they scrimmage which is the kids favorite part. Keep send your kid to training where they dont want to go.

It's really YJ Weiner and then everyone else. And yes YJ is probably not quite in the same class as the top Maryland teams.

How does Weiner do against 2023 teams. Haven’t they played them in winter league? Are they competitive playing up?

The same thing happened when a bunch of positive feedback was said about Tilts a few weeks ago. Accused of it being her even though it was those who actually train with her, myself included. It didn’t take long for someone who felt threatened to come in and attack a bunch of young women. From the looks of it, my guess is a YJ coach. They have the most to lose since there is a lot of negative talk from 2024 jackets parents.

I see that UA and American Selects are on the same weekend. I would imagine a-lot of Bees go to American Selects as the two directors for LI, look to be YJs. Leaves more room open for other LI girls at UA smile. What’s everyone’s consensus of which is better? UA or American Selects?

It will be close. Long Island the reason there is a AS. The coach picking his kids and others saying too political. Kids will try out and pay for Select before UA has tryouts. They will get leftovers. Coaching looks solid in Select regions too.

We are YJ and we are doing UA. Would have sone both if it would have been on different weekends ! That was a miss on YJs part.
It will be easier to make AS, more girls will be selected bc teams are on age, not combined.

The only thing you might be right about is that girls will try out for both. But there is no way a girl who makes UA declines for AS. AS is a money grab and not a proven event at this time.

Legacy? Thought their top girls went over to Weiner a couple years ago? I would say Liberty is the second best team in this age group after Weiner. I agree Top Guns is weak and do not do nearly as much as the other programs.

My daughter has attended laxon, mikekaplan, Tilts, and Kilgus All American Squad. She left Kaplan extremely annoyed by the amount of kids and said that it felt like a hangout session. She said that laxon was ok because she went with friends, but it isn’t worth the money. She had the best experience with Tilts and Kilgus.

Tilts really broke things down for her step by step and integrated footwork, speed, agility, and attack training. It was challenging yet when we got in the car she said it was comfortable and that she’s never had a coach she felt so comfortable working with. We’ve now been working with Tilts 3-4 times a month and my daughter worships her. I’ve never seen her this close to a coach whose not even her travel coach. I’ve seen her take what she’s learned and use it in her games and practices which has been nice since I know my money is going to good use.

She also really enjoyed her time at All American. She felt like it was challenging as well just like she felt with Tilts. She had a love detest with the scrimmage portion because she felt like just another number there and like she wasn’t connecting to coaches, but liked the time to implement what she had worked on. She said the girls were nice and focused and she took away some good points. The coaches are clearly knowledgeable even if it is bigger groups and less individual attention.

If you were going to choose, I’d say Tilts or Kilgus. Kaplan is a scam and laxon is a little more of a social media gimmick than real training.

Thats ironic that you say it started because UA was to political. Did you see who is coaching the 2024 team at America Select? The 2024 Weiner trainer/coach and the 2024 Legacy coach. The team will be every Weiner girl who doesn't make UA then backfilled with Legacy girls.

BTW “probable Maryland parent” regarding Wiener winning at Nationals. The only reason the “top” MD teams weren’t there is they were probably all too old to attend! So, the ones there were of the right age group and actual 2024s! Now, go pick on someone your own age group .... perhaps the 2022 thread?! And, congrats on playing girls prob. 2 years younger than your MD daughters!! Congrats!
