Use this thread to discuss lacrosse pertaining to Boys 2031 (3rd Graders) for the Fall 2021/Summer 2022 season.
Who are the frontrunners for top teams in this org? Are tryouts done for all or is there still room?
Have my first son who is pretty good and looking for a top program. Live in harborfields.

Reach out to the Rebels they have (3) 2031 teams. There top team is going to be legit.
They are in 3rd grade. No top teams yet. You have years of this crazy in front of you. Pace yourself. For the sake of little Johnny who is “pretty good” let him play and enjoy the game for a few more years before you apply the you need to be on the top team pressure.
Rebels have 3 teams? Most can not even field one.
What organizations field 2031 Teams
Thanks

Legacy had 2 teams last year and I’m assuming will have 2 teams this year as well. We were happy. Lots of practices, good coaches. They did play days and a few tourneys
Express, S2S and 91 all have 2031 teams as well.

91 has put a ton of effort into girls program past year and a half. Very happy with program, winter training academy and coaching. Very strong ‘29/‘30 groups as well
Does anyone know if tourneys have separate bracket for 2031, or do they combine with 2030.
they will have their own if there's enough '31 teams in the tournament
My team practicing and trains 5 times per week. Is that normal or is that a lot?
Definitely not normal!
What team is practicing 5 times a week. My son is on so called top team and we’ve had one practice.

Rebels …

Monday practice
Tuesday training
Wednesday practice

Trainings are optional, but it’s still great.

Wow
Dude what r u doing bro? You're a grown butt adult asking strangers if practicing 5 days a week is normal for 8 yr olds clearly understanding some days are optional. Quit with the indirect brag
Looking for scrimmages at this age anyone have a top team list of those fielding 31’ is it safe to awesome all do?
Calm down Napoleon, we all know who is writing this.

First time we get to see the little guys play this fall. I don't think any top teams are at columbus day. Wonder if they will be playing the following weekend at Blatant or 91 tournament.

Legacy, Igloo, Rebels, 91, S2S all have strong top teams from what I have heard
Legacy and Igloo played up in 2030. 91 Top team is in B bracket
Rebels scrimmaging S2S Mon
All in action
Let the Fun begin. 91 and express are not near the others now, but they will be.

This really surprises me with 91. They are usually off ground running. Express gets all the private school players as they enter middle school so not to surprised there.

I agree that “top teams” at this age group means nothing. It’s 3rd grade. Who is coaching the 91 top team ?

Ok. So what’s the name of the top team and who are the coaches? Thanks
Who's In Tristar

Igloo and Rebels 2 strongest by far (2 games each 1 goal - good comeptition)

Then S2S a distant 3rd (Got crushed by Rebels haven't played Igloo)

Then everyone else (Legacy, Express, 91 2 Teams, Rebels 2nd and 3rd teams, etc)
What other programs Field 31 Teams?
The Igloo A team by far the best 31 team on the Island. Beat everyone this fall and tied some very good 2030 teams. Rebels have 2 or 3 players that run down hill but no ball movement.

Igloo and Rebels about even… 1 goal game both times can do either way. Will be good for them to continue to play each other and get better. Those 2 are gold standard for the 31 age group.
Rebels will beat Igloo in spring, summer so you should keep quiet. No even close. Enjoy this fall because this is last time you can say your #1. Your teams been together basically 2 years. Rebels 2 months, enough said, see you in spring.

Are your 2031s 8 years old? Mine is. "No ball movement" -- You clearly don't have older kids and haven't been through this before. LOL. You will look back and realize how silly you sound now.

Sadly they won’t. They will be the dads beating their chests and chasing t-shirts for years to come. Tools on the sidelines. How good your kid at 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 won’t matter. The 8 year old studs who are bigger and faster eventually even out. Many will get passed by. At 8 focus on your kid having fun and getting better independently. Nobody will remember who the best team was when they were 8.
Nice to see rebels playing up and winning! That’s how you do it if you want to get better.

Rebels ball movement looked fantastic this weekend! Rebels improving, my kid improving each week that’s all we are looking for. And the boys are having fun!
Now we know why 91 was in hiding, 28 kids and got beat by town team.
Think Legacy Moves into the 3 spot after today with a big gap up too 1 and 2 spots Rebs/Igloo.

4-5 S2S and 91(Should have stayed in hiding)

Express weak at 31 but always finds a way to build.
That’s right on.

Should have stayed in hiding. This is amazing for 8 year old lacrosse.
It’s basically the begging of the tide. 91 going low , Igloo and Rebs going high. Nothing lasts forever. Parents get it, 91 overrated

Ranking 8 year old ish teams after one Fall tournament? You know nothing and get a life.
Rebels, Igloo and legacy all played min of 3 Tourneys
My Five are
1 Igloo and Rebels


3 Legacy
4 Express East

5-7 In Nor order S2S 91 Express
That Pat Medford Team is made up by a bunch of Rebels. They are a good core group but lets see if it lasts.

Overrated hmm. The best teams at ‘25, ‘27, ‘28, ‘29, ‘30. Arguably 2nd best at ‘26. Solid or very good 2nd teams at most of the age groups. Maybe their training is the best? Don’t worry the ‘31’s will be there in a year or 2
Rebels going no where but up. The Times they are a Changing.
lets be clear
1. Igloo
2. Rebels

not 1.igloo and rebels
Yes you can have that rating for fall, Will be the last time. You had a couple 1 goal games over Rebels who were together 4 weeks
How long has core of Eskimos together?
FACT FACT FACT

Times are changing? They all have nowhere to
Go but up. They are in 3rd grade! Listen to
Yourself! Such a hammerhead!
Will give 91 credit they had 28 b players on iron paying full price. 91 going down down down
3rd-grade lacrosse? Wow
Real difference is made in the winter… how many times is your team getting together from December - February?
Fall classic very weak, only one A team

Rebels have 50+ on the schedule
Yes Rebels practice, really skill training 4 days minimum a week. That’s just winter, and it’s every team every age. Other clubs living in the past.
Any good clubs playing in my lacrosse tourney 20th.
91 probably in it, but once Rebels or Igloo go in they will pull out. The MO is same . 91 is basically done. Good coaches looking for a job, you know where to apply. We do not pay extra for tanning and teeth whitening.
Any teams at spring launch
Tourney might be canceled. Too many 91vs 91tristate vs empire match ups
Yes heard cancelled, Powerhouse Greenwich and Recon can not make. Hope all clubs realize what a joke my lacrosse tournaments are. Stay away, all 91 affiliated teams , and schedule to Benefit them .
I see rebels down Delaware this weekend playing some very good programs, Annapolis Hawks, Baltimore Crabs, and Madlax-Captial.
Rebels going south is awesome. By far best 2031 team on island. If anyone thinks different step up and play them.

There is no need for a 3rd grade team to travel to Delaware for 3 lacrosse games. i have a senior and sophmore that play / have played on very competitive teams. Reps absolutely matter. Being the best 3rd grade team in the universe doesn't.
Your Correct, they do not have too, they want too. Not missing out on reps, three to four practices, and training sessions a week.
Please contact them to set up games, on Island. Thanks for your concerns, appreciated
more rebels propaganda. what tournament? i don't see anything in tourney machine.
We're going to the HoganLax Spring Thaw. The boys are very excited to compete. No propaganda needed. Enjoy your weekend.
Enjoy emptying your bank account on gas for a 3rd grade tourney in Delaware. Sounds awesome.......
Not Rebels fault for gas prices. That’s on our clueless leader. JB

Your clueless! Biden administration has approved more public oil and gas drilling permits per month than trump did in his first three years of presidency. I guess Trump should have approved more when he was there. Maybe we would be producing more by now!
I think it's great that a long island team is going down to take on other states. If we want to be considered a geographically strong lacrosse area, teams need to put themselves out there. I hope they do well and I hope we play against each other in the spring.

....and you would have skipped the opportunity over gas prices? OK.
It's 3rd grade.....save the travel for when it's necessary at older grades. I've been through this with my daughter. Talk to parents of girls who have to travel to MD, NJ and DE in the early years because that's where the tourneys are. By the time they are in HS everyone is burnt out from traveling the NJ turnpike. You will never see MD teams coming to LI at this age for the same reason. It's really not necessary in the boys landscape.
Lacrosse is NOT a Burn out sport.
Traveling the NJ tpke for 8yrs is where the burnout comes from. Save it for later years when its necessary, that's the point.
We are excited and the boys are happy. Please do a little self-reflection on why you need to rain on our parade. If we didn't want this level of commitment, we'd switch teams. I hope you're equally happy with the decisions your coaches are making (I'm not being sarcastic.)
22 degrees with wind chill under 10. No spring thaw here.
Rebels represent LI well beating hawks, madlax and crabs by considerable margins...

Wow very nice! Go Rebels
I heard the Rebels now practice 9 times a week and each player has their own personal coach. Just doing it right.
Also heard rebels shoot lighting bolts out of their arse
Get on the train or get run over by the REABEL locomotive. Let’s Do the loco motion. 2031 is the standard. Anyone want to scrimmage, please contact. 91 please step up and let’s go.

This can’t be a parent. This has to be a troll. 3rd grade lacrosse unbelievable people think like this.
There is a podcast called the reformed sports project. Some people should take some time and listen. It may help!!

The sad thing is that this likely IS a parent. It's those who never played themselves and reliving through their kids. Sad.
Posted By: Anonymous Re: I am very happy to cme here -
At this age it should be about fun but if kids and parents want more of a commitment, then that’s fine as well.
We have seen plenty examples of kids who dedicate large portions of their time to lacrosse at an early age and still love playing and have great success, ie. 91 Crush.
We have also seen kids and parents get burnt out from over exposure. The decision should be made by the parent and child, and is unique to each family.
Parents should be good role models for kids no matter what level they are playing on. Being “The best” in 3rd grade does not matter at all. Too many times the coaches and parents act like kids and embarrass themselves and the organizations they represent!
Igloo (beat Rebels twice)
Rebels
Legacy
S2S

No one else has really played enough
Rebels will CRUSH Igloo; last fall is a long time ago.
1)Rebels
2) Igloo
3) Express East

Igloo beat rebels 2 Times by 3 Goals. Team was together for 6 weeks. Now a Hundred practices later, couple additions and it will not be close

Weirdo...
Just saw My Lacrosse tournaments for this weekend. 2030/31 Combined. What teams are what ages.
More like a Play Day with 21 Total Teams.
Seriously does 91 even field 31. Do they just wait to try to poach players? Not in spring launch?
91 will not play anywhere that they will get blasted. Maybe take summer off? The 2030/31 bracket at spring launch. Never good to mix ages with the little ones. Great job My lax tourneys.
Wow check scores out, sad sad tourney. 2026 is good. 1 out of 5 not bad.

Top teams in the country?!?!? It’s 3rd grade
You sound moronic
Igloo beat Rebels twice, 2-0. They are the top team to date 2031. Who cares about anything else. If you want to be considered a better team, win. Everything else is just noise.
Ok big mouth, let’s do it Rebels are ready any time anywhere. Sure you want to do this. Your claim to # 1 vanishes in one whipping .
Get off the keyboard daddy! let the kids play, stop acting like you’re out there playing
How need Igloo fare again mad lax and Hawks. Rebels beat both, and not close. Very simple if Igloo is number one, let’s go. Contact our coaches, if not keep your trap shut.

No chance this is an actual Rebel parent or coach. Most people come on these things to just stir the pot.
it's going to be so much fun to watch this rebels team fall apart

Big mouth?? Let’s do it? Are you playing. It’s 3rd grade lacrosses. You need some serious help Someone suggested a pod cast above. I listened to a few episodes. Pretty good stuff. I suggest you follow them. It may help. I pray for your kid.
The irony “It’s only 3rd grade lacrosse” but clubs like 91 charge 3-4 k for their 3rd grade players.
Not sure why Patmed is in conversation. But those boys are legit. No one can say different!!!
Thanks coach! Can someone else translate what he wrote?

Rebels ain't falling apart they are here to make noise, their youth teams will be very very good, their younger clinics are packed out, everyone loves what they are doing, and they should, this is just the start for this program if they keep putting the time and effort that they are. For the 2031 stealth team, these kids are having a blast, and they are getting better every-time they get on the field with this group of coaches.

Most of the pat med team are rebels i believe, on the rebels stealth or that rebels raiders team that is out of pat med.

They’ll always charge what people are willing to pay….be ready, it’ll be 5k in a few years
Little birdie told me today, a very good 2030 team is imploding, and all coming to Rebels. Rebels also have 70-90 2033/32’s already. Do the math, 2030/31/32/33 Rebs will be top team. Another one for you. 2029/28/27/26 have hundreds of kids coming to tryouts. 2025’s this year will be top 10. Awesome core and a few stud additions. Hail, Hail, a new sheriff in town. He’s wearing black and red. 91 is a relic, dinosaur, finished, out of commission, done and absolutely History. Hash tag my lax tourneys are poop.
We played Pat Med Today and lost 14-1. All but 3 kids had Rebel helmets on. Talked to Pat med Mom, see said only 3-4 on top team. All other kids are on east end Rebels. Never seen 3 grade town team that good. Five , six passes in a row, on a dime. My son will be trying out for Rebels. Heard 5 teams in 31 next year. That’s so impressive.
Thanks pat med rebels coach. You really fooled us by saying you are an opponents parent
Smithtown and Commack had a good competitive game yesterday. Do they update scores or standings anywhere?
Best players on Smithtown and Commack, Are Rebels.
Okay little Larry liesalot!
Ha ha ha, Rebels? Please. Got blown out in world series. Develop them all you want, come 5th grade 91 and Express will eat your lunch!
91 might not be around. Seriously “Eat your lunch”. Come try to

Which was their 27 team which no one said was good. 30 and below are the teams they really built from ground floor,… and they are all good!
Rebels are new top club. Everyone involved(which includes10 full time employees) are all super dedicated and the very best teachers of the game. The passion and commitment of all with Rebels is 2nd to none. Like Secretariat and 31 length win at Belmont, Rebels have exploded on club lax scene. Those that think this is not a total transformation on top clubs just does not get it. Let’s go Rebels.
Rebels are going to sending a lot of business to all the local Orthopedic surgeons over the next decade
Igloo top 31 team right now. Bunch of Manhasset and CSH kids. 91 will eventually be very good, although the 31 team does nothing compared to 30 team. Express is on the rise! S2S has some really talented Farmingdale/Plainedge kids. Rebels are decent but nothing special.
Originally Posted by HP2008

Definitely someone stirring the pot....
Any team please, please contact Rebels to play. Express in rising , the 31/32 team lost to Rebels 15-0 couple weeks ago. 91 would lose by 20. S2S is a joke organization, plainage, that’s a hot bed. Iglioo has manhasset and CSH kids, so what. Your reign at # 1 is over in a couple weeks. Nice copy cat of Rebel helmets, have to love the baby blue.
Coaching on Igloo A top notch. Ranking teams through this fall would say
1. Igloo A
2. Legacy
3. Rabels
4.s2s
5. 91/Express
So Rebels beat legacy by 8 goals in fall, please explain how they get #2. Thanks TZ. For your input(snake) Rebels will play anyone, just contact them. Here’s Ranking 1) Rebels then no other team close.
I love the “rebels will play anyone” line but doesn’t hold water; our coach has reached out multiple time, offering to play them here in Philly or closer to them…crickets.
But, hey, keep promoting the club, seems to be doing wonders.
Igloo is #1. Sorry red hats. Oh and BTW, they beat ya's even w the 4th graders ya'all snuck in. Even the little guy with the zztop goatie was crying. Ha ha ha ha!!
Rebels smoked madlax and Hawks in Delaware. So what Philly team are you? Rebels will play and beat anyone, anytime.

My son is on the team... Rebels do not have any 4th graders playing or on the roster... even though down in DE there WAS an Igloo 4th graded playing on one of the 3rd-grade teams ... Dont throw stones in a glass house

As far as rankings right now it is Igloo / Rebels as 1a and 1b. Then Legacy / 2S2 AS A distant 3/4 ... then everyone else pretty far behind that
all these new rebel parents have no idea.
by 5th/6th grade express will have a top team of kids looking to be noticed for a catholic HS
91 will slowly poach the best kids, some right from the rebels
igloo will add to their roster of talent
and Legacy will grow and develop talent as well.

the 31 rebels team will follow the same path as ALL THE OTHER REBELS TEAMS and be no shows at top tournaments and just go win their own B level tournaments.

and just wait till the out of state teams start showing up with 5-6 holdbacks... good luck rebels, enjoy it while it lasts
Times are changing. Reverse your though, top kids at many ages coming to Rebels. Poaching days are done.
that's a lie. top talent kids do not leave their team to play for a worse team. simple concept.

what does happen is A teams have kids who don't see the field that often, they jump to the rebels because they have less talent, and that kid will get more time.
see, that's why your a B team, you get lower tier players from better teams looking for more playing time. understand the concept.

then what happens is the 1 or 2 good kids on the rebels realize they are on a B team and wanna move up to play in real tournaments on real A teams and you lose them.
Lacrosse is a great sport, but believe it or not, this is all about creating good habits and character development and not lacrosse.

You do a disservice to Rebels when you come on here and talk about how great your organization is. Just let the results speak for themselves and leave it alone. No need to do a celebration in the end zone and gloat every time you score.

It’s also very obvious this banter is coming directly from the Rebels staff as any kid or parent already at Rebels wouldn’t want to lose playing time to an incoming stud. Conduct your organization more professionally like how Jerry Rice conducted himself and just maybe you have a chance to recruit and retain top talent.

The kids that got cut from the B team in my son’s organization went to the Rebels A team (not this age group). No top kids at any age are defecting from the normal top clubs to go to Rebels.

Impressive showing in Delaware. Enjoy the hot start and the fun while it lasts.
Igloo and Legacy have best 31 coaching staffs. They will be the best teams. They both develop players. 91 is top club in country, they will be great at some point. Express will get Catholic school kids. Rebels will continue to be 4/5, maybe 6 best program on the island.

I have an older guy who plays for the rebels. My 31 plays for a different club. I am by no means sayid the rebels are the new hot club……. Blah blah blah. Based on my interactions with them for my older son I highly doubt the directors are coming on here and spewing this nonsense.
AA training with the Rebels. Another brilliant idea. 4/5 amazing coaches. Kids from all AA clubs welcome. Guess no 91 kids then.

Rebels staff is great

Current college head coach
Multi all American from Hopkins
Multi all American from pace
Coach with 20+ years experience
Past HS Coach that owns a training facility

5 coaches, all qualified and different,

The other teams have great coaching staffs too, lets be happy the boys are playing a lot- getting coached by good coaches and hopefully playing competitive games that gets everyone better!

What people forget about Rebels is they are only in year 3 or 4 and are already better at some ages than the big few, they are mentioned with the big 5 or 6 on Long Island and trending upward, younger teams are great, older teams are OK but still have lots of da commitments.

Pick your team on what’s best for your son or daughter and their situation, not parents who, back of the cage feedback or anything else!
Rebels are solid, but top heavy team. Igloo kids are way more athletic and Legacy has more depth.
Agreed! Igloo best 31 team and top coaching staff at this age. Just calling it like it is. Classy organization as well.

Igloo is the farm system for express and 91
On 23rd a new pecking order will be established
91 and express soon to be Dinosaurs. If you can not see this coming then your a fool.
Lmao! Rebels are trash, win something before you pump your chest out!

Spreading yourselves way to thin! Going to be demise of Rebels. Classic case of the losers who talk smack and never won a thing. The rankings don’t lie!
91= Titanic=3 years from now they will be done. The reason is they actually believe that 91 is the best, not even close. The arrogance is unbelievable.
1.igloo
2. S2S
3.Legacy
4.91
5.Rebels
6.Express
7.Moose

Will be interesting to see S2S match up with the big blue Machine. Igloo most likely will prevail but S2S upgraded this winter.

This list is tooo funny! Rebels 2nd teams are better than S2S, 91 and Express. Rebs beat down S2S and Legacy 2x. Also beat Madlax Capital, Annapolis Hawks, and Baltimore Crabs Handily. Rebels play Igloo the 23rd so that will also be clarified.

2. S2S- Won about 14-4 in a scrimmage in fall
3. Legacy- played 2x and crushed 2x
4. 91 was hiding, but 91 lost to pat med 10-0
6. Rebels just scrimmaged express top team and won 17-1

Think rebels have played in 5 tourneys. 4 championships (1 in a 2030 division) and 1 - 1 goal loss in championship...
Wins over S2S, Express, Legacy, Madlax, Hawks, Crabs to name a few....

Lets hope there are 3-4 really competitive teams on LI that help each other get better...
Rebs31 most dominant Rebels team ever!
Open invite, S2S anyone contact Rebels. Will play anytime. Interesting that Hawks had 2030 kid facing off for them. Did not help. Better yet, S2S play some AA tourneys. Hide all the time will only hurt.

S2S is smart , they will not play Iglioo or Rebels all summer. Can not lose if you do not play. Legacy express 91 ect they will not duck anyone. Weather they win or lose. S2S go to clubs websites, see tourneys they are playing and step up. Your days are numbered , parents figure it out.

Igloo not on that list!
Don’t sleep on S2S, they have a talented group. Some very impressive boys from Plainedge. I like them a lot….
“Lost twice” BINGO.

“Beat in scrimmage “ who cares

Rebel leadership reaching hard. They’ll be lucky to have a club in 4 years. See Outlaws….
I would say in 4 years s they will by far be top club
Express has all competitive teams 2028 and up, multiple world series championships and possibly this years 2027 group also. 91 same thing, same world series championship teams. Ownership for both on top recruiting NLF tournament board and strong connection w D1 schools!! Igloos TA and Legacys TZ same with D1 connections. S2S has very strong teams 2026,2027,2028 and 2030 teams. Rebels blown out in 2027 qualifiers! Outscored 30-2 in first round. They are pinning their hopes and future on a 2031 team. (8 year olds hahahha!!) Btw, that cant beat Igloo....

Rebels "leadership" doesn't spend time here. But you people are crazy on here. No 8 year old team is dictating the future of a club. However, the guys do have 50+ Commits in their first 3 classes D1, D2, and D3. They have build from 7 teams to 19 in 3 years. They are expanding to Maryland and eastern long island next year. They may not be the best now, they many not be the best ever, but they are absolutely here to stay. Enough fighting and bantering about 8 year olds, what tournaments is everyone playing in this spring/summer?
.91 just hit all time low. 31 Iron was not in original schedule for Spring weak Jam. Now they are playing three village , times 3. The 31 team the 31 b team and 32b. Wow they must not be very good. This just shows what 91 is about, sad, sad time to be attached to this organization.
Has anyone checked on the Rebels dad? I don’t think he’s ok
Great game today. Igloo beat Rebels in another one goal game. Both teams are great, coached well, and a pleasure to watch. Igloo is #1 and deserves that. Rebels are #2. No one else is close. Going to be fun watching these clubs play over the years. Think they go at it in a few weeks at Blatant. Believe all AA teams are there.

He will have a hundred excuses on why they lost.
Ref’s missed a bunch of calls
Refs were biased
Missing a top player
Top player was sick or hurt
Etc………………
Nope. No excuses - our team just didn't play their best. No need for trash talk; we're happy to continue to play against another team who trains as hard as we do. It was an exciting game to watch. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

He posts on every grade thread. Working overtime to sell the rebels
Igloo out coaches Rebels again. This is going to be a reoccurring theme. Lol
...so much for no trash talking? Keep it classy, Igloo - we can both be solid teams with great, dedicated coaches. Let's just be pleased that we have two competitive teams that will continue to battle it out over the years. Hopefully, we'll see you guys again soon; it'll make all of our kids better players.

Clearly not igloo trash talking. I see what you did. Nice try.
How would a “Dad” know what’s going on with every age group or care for that matter!
Iglioo really should be a little humble. They know how good REBS are. Just enjoy your success, because it’s fleeting

First off, if we all go back in this thread, and actually every thread age group, all we see is Rebels marketing trash talk.

Second, you see one gloating post, that one could argue was written by Rebels to try and stir the pot (but who cares) and Rebels is saying that Igloo should be humble?

The pot calling the kettle black. Let it go.
Let’s face the facts, 91 will be the top team in age group in 2 years.
How can you say Rebels 31’s are the best team. They lost to Igloo 3x by a goal. Both teams are good and full talented kids. This will be great to watch for many years to come.
Igloo coaches :3 wins
Rebels coaches:3 loses
That’s what it comes down to guys!!!! Adjustment are everything in close games.
Wow, Vegas has Rebels favorite by 3.5 on may 14 th vs the Eskimos. By the way , the Rebels Def coach is A 3 time All America from JH ) John Hoskins) Offensive Coach is 2 Time All American from Pace and top 15 scorer of al time. Head coach is a legend. So please who are these Iglioo guys. Rebels will never be out coached
once great players don't always make great coaches.

Unhappy rebels dad
Rebels coaches are not good. Losing to Igloo three times with more talent. Embarrassing they are still on here yapping after getting whacked time after time!
SO, 91 Registered and was on Tourney Machine playing in Sunday 2031 Bracket. Then Today there are Gone. Suprise ,Surprise. Scared I guess.
Maybe Coaches need to do some more POACHING, Its their specialty.

Let me guess, you skipped grades K-12.
91 waiting patiently, coaching the boys up! When ready, going to be a blood bath! Still number 1 club in country!

Im sure the parents are patiently waiting while paying 4 Grand..... They are the Top program on the Island but not playing at the younger ages against better teams is just weakness and insecurity. It is also at the same time a smart business move bc they dont want to get blown out and have parents question with they are paying for.. It was pretty bad getting their doors blown off by a Town team in the fall.

“Waiting patiently” is a nice marketing term by 91 instead of “ducking superior teams until we poach enough players to compete”

But yeah they “develop” lol
I guess Rebels coaches the boys up. Held Igloo to 3 goals for the wire to wire win... Will probably play again in champ...

To be clear Im joking about the coaching because of all the ridiculous posts before. Both teams are great. Both sets of coaches are great. Will continue to go back and forth, and most importantly make each other better. Remember when it really comes down to it your son will be competing against thousands of players nationwide for college roster spots. So Rebels / Igloo having a healthy rivalry, where its always close is BEST FOR THE KIDS!
Rebels go 2-0 vs Igloo winning 5-3 and 7-1 in the champ game…. Guess rebels do know how to coach?

Great job team.
Explain why Igloo coaches subbed 2 times in transition and let up 2 Goals. Games not even close. Rebels by far better team better coaches. Most importantly Rebel dads do not tuck shirts in. The Igloo run is officially over.
Someone just forwarded me this thread and I’m embarrassed for everyone writing on it. It’s sad actually. The fact that you don’t realize this is emblematic of all that’s wrong with youth sports. Rebels def played really really well and igloo didn’t have a great game. It happens in sports. Two really good teams that I’m sure will continue to play and beat each other.
You guys realize this is 3rd grade lacrosse right?
“Rebels dads do not tuck their shirts in”. The person posting all this and all that was said before seriously needs mental help and shouldn’t be around kids.

Welcome to BOTC. Rebels at this age group play well and physical. No one ever said different. Try not to get caught up in Rebels marketing banter. They pay someone full time to come on this site to stir the pot and promote Rebels. Very annoying and a huge turnoff.

Parents are the worst where they post in the middle of a tournament to promote their results. Class would be to just let the result speak itself.
Thumbs down to the jerk Igloo dad who gave his kid the worse dressing down in the parking lot. Not sure if it was this team but I hope your wife divorced your fat out of shape butt. Great job ruining sports for your kid.
You people are nuts
Can we all agree now Rebels #1 iglioo 2 and everyone else. Igloo very solid but really only has a couple very good offensive players. I am Rebel parent , and have complete respect to the Eskimo s. Any given day. This is so awesome to watch 3 rd grade lacrosse move the ball like a jv team. Congratulations to both. If s just great not having 19 or Lie in the convo.

Has to be the fat defensive coach who literally screams at the kids the entire game. That guy should not be around kids. Shame on the parents for allowing it to happen.

I watched the final game. Rebels we’re very impressive with unselfish play and ball movement. Igloo will not last long if that one coach continues to act like a donkey and scream at the kids all day long. They always seem to have the biggest a hole coaches on their top teams

Lol the rebels do not pay someone to post on here. That’s is the most ridiculous thing I have heard.

Some people post on here and try to stir the part from different organizations and act like they are from a certain one. Their 31 doesn’t need an anonymous forum to see who the best 31 team is at this age… just check tourney machine or watch a game.

Hats off rebels coaching making adjustments after losing a 1 goal game last time, and winning by +8 in 2 games.

You need mental help to care so much about 8/9yo lacrosse. The fact that you don’t understand this and continue to seek gratification is actually sad.

Express east 2 nd . S2s is a B team. Rebels played with 13 kids today
I think Coach is excellent! Nothing wrong with being loud. Igloo 31’s have a very good defense.

Wasn’t very good against the rebels. Especially in the championship game. And the kids are 8 years old. Remember that
I’m appalled by rebels coaches calling kids on the shore and express team names during our game. That’s disgraceful but unfortunately not first time I’ve heard coaches call 8yo kids names during a game.

This sounds insane. Coaches yelling to opposing players?
Old coach on Rebels is a clown on sideline.
Never ever called names , get faxes straight Maybe give your son a thropy for a good try.

This just isn’t true … you happened to be on the coaches sidelines for both of these games lol? Just a lie. Carry on.
If there was ever a legit reason to hold back your kid, it would to be to get away from this 2031 dumpster fire of age group here on LI. You people are insane in so many ways. People talking D1 scholarships, declarations of being best team in the COUNTRY and coaches calling opposing players names all at 3RD GRADE!!!!!
I hope I heard it wrong. Can we all as parents pledge for sake of every child out there to act like adults going forward?. At end of day these are kids and it’s a game, so let’s set the tone so they model good behavior and competition. It’s so easy to get caught up but let’s all pledge to behave like adults. Congrats to rebels for well deserved wins.
I am a parent and was at the game. Disgusting behavior by the Rebels head coach. He called a 3rd grader a “scrub” and yelled “see you later”. When his player ran by the player. Pathetic that a grown man would act in this manner. It’s really too bad as the team is clearly the best in the age group and this disgrace will ruin it for all those boys.

wow
As a Rebels parent on that sideline, we agreed that the language in that one situation was too harsh. Our coach is a good man who cares very much about our guys but he got carried away. Please know that we respect your coaches, players, and parents and we look forward to more games this season.
this is clearly coming from a rebels representative, and not a parent. give me a break, with that stiff corporate response. the organization is trash from top to bottom, and a bunch of there coaches have poor reputations that left other teams but they all settle in at the rebels.

I have 2 older kids and it’s not much better. I don’t believe it’s all the parents. I think it’s coming from 2 or 3 people just posting over and over. But I do agree this is crazy !!! By far the othe

The other grades are just as bad. It starts to die down a little when they are 14. Buckle up and good luck!!
Long Island lacrosse is crazy at every age, but it’s usually only a few parents on a few teams that cause most of the “drama” find a good team with good coaches and ignore the drama. Simple as that.

Not trying to rebels out this post, but the rebels two B teams are both very good. Rebels Raiders are best "B" team around have beaten all the other B teams, and a few of clubs top teams, they are more east ended. Rebels Riot are central and very good as well in terms of skill. Great set of coaches on both those rosters.

Legacy has a solid B team, Mooselax only has one team but solid B team.

For Central location would look at Rebels Riot, and Mooselax. For East end would look at Rebels Raiders and Legacy B.
Lol. Guess this shows this is one of the coaches.
91 has a very good B team with the best coaches at that level. Not sure if Legacies B team is strictly 31 or combined with 32s. Igloo has a B team that is pretty bad. Rebels B teams are okay but coaching is weak, like most B teams. I’d go with 91 first because of there coaches but if Legacy is strictly 31, I give them a look as well.

Rebels coaches are very good for my son (raiders and riot practices together all winter)

Does 91 have a B team or is that just their first team? I know there first team was losing to town teams in the fall so not sure how a 2nd team would be.
91 does have both A and B plus they don’t put their A players on B teams for the sake of a good tournament showing.

Experienced coaching and player development are the key. Not Pat yourself on the back third grade wins.

Yeah 91 shares players every grade… but when you don’t play tourneys can’t share players lol

This is comical on 2 fronts. 91 absolutely shares players if the B team is light. 91 caring about player development and not wins is the silliest thing I have ever heard.
Amazing Things going on at REBELS at all ages. Stay Tuned
How is the Predators 31 team in Westchester County? From the website it seems like a very strong staff of coaches who really know the game.

91 Titans win Championship! The train is rolling …..
We need a 91, Igloo, Rebels, and Shore 2 Shore to all play in one bracket somewhere. Lets go club director's set it up.

Igloo and 91 playing in Delaware this weekend. What about others?
Rebels in, would replace 91 with Express East
91 really not good
Good luck in DE this weekend. Rebels are playing in a 2030/31 division at Lehigh Laxfest. It's nice that everyone is travelling for good competition this weekend. We did well against those teams in Delaware in March. Hope you get a similar result.
Iron playing madlax first game. Spread is madlax , minus 9.
91 Coaches not going to play top clubs yet because they will get washed. Good strategy for sure, they already lost to town teams, so now they are picking on the little fish and B division squads. If they played Igloo/Rebels/Legacy they would lose and more then likely lose a few of their players. They do have a lot of talent but as a team not there yet. Don’t underestimate 91 though, it still is top program in country. Of course at certain age groups weaker then other but overall still best around!

You are correct. 91 coaches comb thru the tournament registration to make sure no 3rd grade “top” team is signed up. Holy smokes! Dude get a life.

Yes that’s exactly what they do, since they run the tournaments… and know which ones to avoid.

For example wouldn’t see them in blatant or tie star because good teams there and they can’t control schedule
That is exactly what 91 does, ay every age. They had a good run, lost focus, now they will be churning out B team specials.
Iron did not cover the 9 goal spread. 0-3 That has to hurt
91 will be fine as always! No scholarships for 3rd graders. Plenty of talent coming in.
Igloo champs 2031 NAL!
Where would talent come from. 91 is a quick sinking ship. Any parent I talk too, says same thing. Get on the life boat quick, the run is OVER.
Why did the Rebels have such a tough time with nobody programs in Lehigh? Igloo beat BLC in championship and lost to Madlax in pool.
Rebels played up a grade. They also beat Madlax 9-3. Very interesting that iglioo and Rebels were playing first game next week. All of a sudden not on schedule. If you make it to finals rebels will be waiting for you. Like the 7-1 lopsided game a few weeks ago, they will go down again.
Who said Rebels had a tough time? 2031 Stealth went 4-0 against 4th grade teams. We already beat the teams in DE this year. Congrats to Igloo though. Looking forward to next week….

They played up a division but against Headstrong ffs. Sounds like the early spring tour against the HoCo teams was a fluke and Igloo is the class is LI.
Rebels parents are crazy
I think its the rebels owner posting all that not the parents
Hoco was a fluke. Beating crabs madlax and hawks by a total of 22 goals. Sounds pretty fishy. Then crushing iglioo 7-1 few weeks back. Yes, I do believe that makes Iglioo the class of Long Island.

Rebels won last 2 including 7-1 champ… both teams are good
Rebels are pretty good but probably a step behind Igloo or even S2S at this point.
Ok so Rebels beat Iglioo last 2 times, one score 7-1. And have never lost to S2S(they are a mess will all teams) and Rebels are third. Please explain that logic. Tournament play this year Rebels. 13-0 wins again, with wins against madlax, hawks,crabs, express east, iglioo(x2, sweetlax, Fla stealth, and legacy. Then 3 2030 teams. Now again explain what you logic is. Only one close game against Iglioo 5-3. Every other 31 game a blow out.

Madlax has beaten Igloo both times in 1 goal games, not sure how you have Igloo above them. Bethesda probably has the series lead over Madlax, I would go:
1. Rebels
2. Bethesda
3. Madlax
4. Igloo
5. Hawks

All of these teams could beat any of the others on any given day, except for probably Rebels, they've handled (4-6 goal wins) Madlax and Hawks in DE, and recently Igloo. Should be a really fun summer.
Please explain Eskimo s over Rebels , when last game was 7-1 Rebs

Rebels are a little overrated. You can only train robotic execution to a talent upper limit. The better athletes from the other programs erases that maniacal 5 practice/week advantage. It’s already showing in the tournaments. Low end talent has limits.

They go 3 days a week. Have great coaching (as you mention) and are getting better each week. Definitely the team to beat right now. Take down Laxachusetts and Igloo this week.

This team is the opposite of robotic hit us with something different each time we play them. They are an awesome group of 7/8 year olds give them props Jesus. Congrats rebels!
Rebels are now 18-0 in tournament play. Think they should be ranked, well, maybe, that’s right #1. Credit to Iglioo at #2(nothing wrong with that) no team is really close to them.
Interesting analysis, every game I’ve seen I thought the complete opposite. Igloo is a team that has been together for 3 years and extremely well coached and the Rebels, who are a first year team are WAY more athletic. Guess the results speak for themselves .
This did not age well! Rebels BEAT igloo again. Win Championship

From a team perspective looks like Rebels are the ones who look like they’ve been together for 3 years. Kudos to the coaches. Just this summer they are undefeated and have wins against

Igloo - 3x
Laxachusetts
Crabs
Madlax
Hawks
Express East
Legacy
Shore 2 Shore

Played up in 2030 and won champ.

Pretty undisputed #1 at this point

Would assume rebels and igloo tryouts are filled with all the top kids on LI not on ones of those teams already.

My Rankings would be

Rebels
Igloo
Bethesda
Laxxachusetts
Madlax


Jersey express with a nice OT game vs Igloo yesterday.
I believe Rebels and Igloo is a good matchup, but to be honest I think Igloo has beaten Rebels way many more times...
Congratulations to Rebels 31’s, great tournament win.

Igloo dad- you can’t rank Igloo above Rebels when the Rebels have won the last three match ups. They’re both phenomenal teams but right now it’s Rebels #1 and Igloo #2. They could absolutely keep flip flopping over the next decade but your ranking is completely subjective instead of objective. It was a great weekend of lacrosse.
Rebels and Iglioo coaches get along and respect each other. Kids have friends on opposite team. No fights on parents sides. Just a lot of fun and amazing talent for this age on both. Enjoy it and maybe chill on the rankings for a bit.

Rebels played those HoCo teams this summer? I think only Igloo and S2S have played HoCo teams this summer. Crabs are bottom half of HoCo. Rebels played up in Lehigh sure but they played headstrong fcol. That they seem to have Igloo's number which means they're definitely a top team but not so sure they'd be anything better than 50/50 against Madlax.
Rebels went to the Spring Thaw earlier this season and beat MadLax 11-6, Hawks 8-3, and Crabs 7-1. They were all solid teams and it’ll be great to play again. Why do people have a hard time giving the Rebels credit? Our boys work really hard and we respect that your kids do too.
Spring thaw hoco teams are not season/summer hoco teams. Nobody has problems giving Rebels credit and it certainly seems like they're a top team. If they have Igloo's number and Igloo was competitive with top hoco teams this summer (they beat BLC and lost to madlax), then they're right there. But in all the Rebel posts about "rankings" (in 3rd grade no less), it's probably Igloo+Rebels+top 1/2 of hoco in first tier, bottom of hoco + best of rest LI + laxachusetts + jersey express + nxt, etc.

Also, you don't need to start artificially lowering the age of the Rebels artificially to compensate; 0% chance rebels have any 7 yo on team let alone active player 7yos. 31s should be 9. Many hoco teams feed from private schools with "pre-1st" (lol) so there are indeed a # of 10 year olds on clubs like madlax, blc, and hawks. But LI lax also has it's reclass nuances so let's not act like Rebels or Igloo are 9yo purists either.

Just like spring thaw rebels teams aren’t the same as summer teams… weird argument. All teams progress through spring / summer.
Here are my new rankings after this weekend.
1. 91 iron/titans (name changes depending on weather)
2. Igloo
3. Rebels
4. Everyone else.

So somehow the missing players from both teams in spring makes it a wash? All we know is:
* Rebels have Igloo's number
* Igloo have played with top HoCo teams this summer (once) and played competitively, winning playoffs but losing in pool
* This summer Rebels have played nobody of note except Igloo this past weekend
* (rebels spring thaw roster is 95% now roster)

I think it's probably Rebels, Igloo, top 4 from HoCo as the top tier/elite teams, and then there's a big of a bulge bracket in the next tier.

How do you know rebels roster?

Rebels have played and beat igloo 3 times since May. Best laxxachusetts, S2S and anyone else on their schedule. Plus best all 3 in HOCO. Not saying they will stay the #1 but hard to put anyone else above them now.

Agreed that that is the top tier and anyone can knock off anyone.
Do you have information that disproves that the spring 2022 rebels roster was materially different from summer 2022 rebels roster? I have information on the spring rosters of the HoCo teams at spring thaw and they were about 60% strength. E.g. ML DMV kids playing for ML Capitol (they did not remain on Capitol roster for HoCo season)
Word is rebels have a few 4th graders on their team. I’d agree they are top team at the moment. Interesting that 91 not even in the mix.
Stop already. It’s early elementary school. This means nothing. Look at these clubs older teams, 2024,2025,2026,2027. These are the important years. Not many people care who the best or 2nd best 8 year old boys team is.

There are no 4th graders... but there are 2nd graders...
91 not playing anyone because they don’t want a mass exodus. Great strategy for their 31 team. Cyclones were destroying everyone this time last year. Their 31 team is not good but has has good athletes that would be smart to try out a different and less expensive product!

It's best to talk about ages because we all know the reclassification hijinks that go on. Like imagine thinking "man, little Connor really needs an extra year of scholastic preparation before he *checks notes* goes from Kindergarten to 1st grade."

This is correct order
1. Igloo
2.Rebels
3. Madlax
4.bethesda
5. Crabs
Crabs? They are bottom tier of HoCo what are you even talking about? Rebels have Igloo's number so not sure how you have them reversed.

Rebels AA teams please stop 😂
Rebels stealth are 21-0 and have won every tourney they have played. Iglioo is 15-4 and have lost to rebels 3 times. That’s the facts Jack. It’s Rebels going into to next season. I see a few little Eskimo’s looking to move over the Rebs.
Rebels had tryout today, think 1/2 Iglioo team there.

Some of the igloo kids are very good. What’s going to happen to the kids on the back of the roster of stealth Do they get dropped down to the B team. Or do the Rebels carry 30 kids on their top team. Going to be interesting to see what happens.
Rebels should have ability to make Stealth even more of a super team, and build their riot team into a legit team as well. Expect them to have 2 of the top teams at this age.
Yeah, cuz that always goes well for teams…lol
I would say stealth has 6-8 spots available. Team had a few 2 nd graders and few went to riot. Core 15/16 all coming back. Simple Math. , spots are available, and if your son is a top player on his current team, he should be at tryouts. That’s only if you want to be in #1 team in The USA .

Funny because all the best long Island players will end up at 91 and Express. Every grade. They always do.
Third grade rankings don’t really matter but I’ll bite…

Is Igloo above Madlax because they beat them once? And lost once but, hey, let’s just count the championship. The Rebels have beaten Igloo three times in a row but you guys keep posting these rankings as if it changes those results. If you write it on a message board, it must be true. Enjoy the last few weeks of your child’s season.

Igloo keeps getting ranked above the Rebels because it drives the rebels dad crazy. He keeps falling for it. He is being trolled
No one close to rebels and they are getting better. Every top kid on island trying to come to them

Be careful what you wish for. They are a good team a very good team. If all the other top players come over. That means some of or a lot of the current roster will be pushed down or pushed aside. I’ve been around club lacrosse for years before I had kids I coached. Very few organizations can manage 2 good teams. The parents on the second team alway feel left out or feel like they are playing second fiddle to the top team. Creates too much drama and eventually it falls apart
People also want to play for clubs where that have a chance to play in WSYL in a few years. Everyone knows. The non stop self promoting becomes counterproductive.

When going through upcoming tryouts, roster size should be your #1 question, on any given team.

18 is perfect and anything beyond 20 is a money grab. Reasonable game playing time beyond 18 is near impossible. If a club far exceeds 20, run!!!!!!

I will NOT commit to a team that will carry anymore than 22 players. To no fault of the kids and parents and sometimes coaches, these teams will be plagued with an extremely toxic environment.

Ideal team size for games 18:
4 Defense
6 Middies
4 Attack
1 LSM
1 FOGO
2 Goalies

Ideal team size for practices 20:
5 Defense
6 Middies
1 LSM
1 FOGO
5 Attack
2 Goalies

Directors should be upfront on roster size. If they don’t offer this, you should ask the question before you commit. RUN if roster spots exceed 22 or you don’t get a clear answer. Advocate for your son by asking the question and keeping the clubs accountable.
Rebels 21-0 this tourney season. End of ranking discussion

Let me guess, Rebels will have 5 teams of 22 for each age group.hahahha
18 is to small, you have no idea what your talking about.

4 defense? 1 takes a penalty. you don't rely on your LSM in that situation as the 4th pole on man down.
you play 4 defense and 1 shorty. you need 5 def minimum.

i'm not going any further because you clearly know nothing about the sport.

Not the guy that posted the above statement but 18 was the norm not too long ago. Then club teams moved to 20 that was the standard until Express 2022 team started adding players. Cant blame them, back then it was $2,700 per year 2-4 extra players per team ( 9 grades) per year. That's a lot money almost 2 full teams of extra players with the combined grade years. They still got their top kids recruited while they took all the extra money. Their thinking at the time was "well we told the parents it would beneficial to have their kid on the second team but they wanted their kid on the A team (back then it was A teem and B team no AA ) Then more parents started asking to have their kids on the A team next thing the roster was at 30 Then they started calling the A team AA and the B team A then the C team was now a B team Parents lined up to get their kids on these teams. I was coaching another team at the time, we lost a few kids to them. eventually other clubs saw how much they were making and joined in. Now its out of control. Cant blame the clubs they are in business to make a profit It's the crazy parents that caused club lacrosse to spiral out of control.
Once they learn of the coaches reputation and learn why he got dumped from another club they will RUN to 91. Guy needs to learn how to treat kids...some example he sets. I'm sure the college coaches love dealing with him...

Agree with this. Once upon a time it was 18-20. But the new norm is 20-22. I would be very surprised if anyone carry’s 18 these days.

Not sure about that. The coaches of the 31 igloo team are truly special leaders. Other clubs should be so lucky. Enjoy last two weeks and tryouts.
I heard some of the higher ceiling Rebels Stealth kids are going to Igloo. Tryout season shaking thing up for 2023.
Rankings 2.0

2031 LI

Igloo
91
Express East
Rebels and Legacy tie
S2S
Jesters
Empire
Rebels are too high. Not losing in last 40 games, yes they should be ranked #7. 91 has not won a game but think they are the top team. Just because the directors have small brains and feel Its automatic. Guess what your run has come to a screeching halt. 91 express Eskimo’s will fight for 2-4. Legacy is done, turtles are done , s2s is well really done. Rebels Rule LI and Nation. Should have got on the train, now it’s rolling all over. I s amazing what’s happening. Owners of 2-4 should sell know, your on the way OUT. Will be worthless after tryouts.
Stay on the Island

This 2031 board is the gift that keeps on giving. 3rd grade!!!
Rebels Stealth continue undefeated summer, NXT Champs.
Igloo won Hershey and Rebels Stealth won the NXT Cup. Congratulations to both teams. Way to keep it on the Island. Only a few more chips left…

Glad those LI boys can win championships while other teams are sending skeleton crews to summer tournaments.
Who tf is Eclipse? They’re not beating HoCo teams.
eclipse is out of CT. in about 3-4 years their team will be fully reclassed and at least 1-2 years older than most LI teams and destroying the competition. Prep school kids.

^^This^^ (and I'm not an Eclipse parent)
Guess that’s why LI owns the WSYL
Undefeated summer is over 2x
Rebels we’re combo team ties/wed. Only 12 stealth kids at event. Will have full team at Lake george. Say want you want, jealousy is a horrible trait.
so losses don't count if your full team isn't there?

that makes sense.
Rebels east the real deal. Lots of legacy and empire helmets. 2 teams out of the gate.
Here we go again

Pretty interesting in that legacy hasn’t given us helmets yet.
30 kids there tonight…..where are the other 20 coming from in order to make two teams? Just because kids attend a tryout doesn’t mean they will choose to play for that club either.

We’re 50 + night 1 and only had to go to 1 tryout. Was surprised how many kids for a new program
96.7 percent of kids getting offered Rebels are taking. Why would u turn down east program ran by 5 plus varsity coaches 3 coaches per team, training and practice 2 plus times a week all year . Full time staff of 18 plus. The future of li lacrosse has arrived.

It’s a great place to play if you want to pound your chest because you beat a ton of B teams at terrible tournaments. There’s a reason why the outlaws don’t exist anymore… you can put shiny red helmets on a B team… and it’s still a B team.

Shows how very little you know about rebels
honestly why would anyone want to be on the rebels. constant B level teams. constant lies on this board about how great they are. and constantly bashing other programs. is that what people want to be a part of?
