Heard Express Chucks lost some players to Venom, Igloo and Turtles. Wonder how strong they will be this year.

Did Moose shut down their 2028 team?

Heard whole moose team shut down. A bunch went to Venom pushing those venom kids to surge and other moose went to surge. A few others tried out for various clubs

Looks like venom poached a lot of the top talent in this age group. Moose folded. Any other teams improved from last season?

Club prices are relative to what you get for the money. Be sure to ask what is included and how it compares to other clubs.

You can. They just renamed the threads.
As for tuition, these are a few I've heard

Rush - $3500
Rebels - $3200
Express - A(2 teams) $3900, B - $3K

I think most come in between $3K-$3500, with Express topping at almost $4K
Legacy - $3825
91A is 4K

Anybody think their kid’s team got better/ worse? I know my kid thought about switching teams. Friends have made moves. Just asking.

Definitely better . A 2026 shouldn’t be hopping clubs at this point unless it’s for Express A. Not a Express parent .

I shouldn’t let my kid switch teams if he wants to?
Such a critical year in his lacrosse life?
He wants to play on a different team…. So he is. Why wouldn’t I let him play where he wants. Always on the field wherever he plays so why not let him pick. I’ll just have to take the old team magnets off the car. No big deal. Done.

Go where your kid is going to be happy! Let him pick. It’s Lacrosse and life is short. Perspective goes a long way. Everyone’s path is different as to how they get where they are going. The “express” path Not the only way. As much as some on here want to believe it is!

Sure let him pick what he wants but don’t be the stunard Karen who complains later your kid didn’t get into college because the stunard team losses all the time and is irrelevant.

I couldn’t agree more. I love how parents cry about kids not being “loyal” to clubs. The same time the club will cut your kid in a heartbeat if they feel a better one comes along. If your not getting a good product for the money your spending than look elsewhere.

If your kid “is always on the field wherever he plays”, it would seem the club may feel some loyalty. Don’t get too big for your britches. Still a lot of change coming for these boys in the next few years. Your son’s situation may change on a dime.

As long as his son is happy about his choices and feels like he is going to a team to grow and thrive and still enjoy playing the game! More power to him. Don’t have your kid stay where they are not happy. What’s that flower saying? “If you are not growing , pick yourself up and plant yourself somewhere else”. Express is not everyone’s definition of sunshine. Not everyone grows better there.

Original poster made it seem like he was leaving his club to follow his friends? So what teams did his friends jump ship for? The only reason why I mentioned Express because they are the top team. Just find a club with good coaching!!

Strong coaching is ideal for every player, of course. But if your kid is serious about lacrosse and has the ability, he needs to be surrounded by other strong players if he is going to continue to develop.

Think Express is only one settled at top, rest up for grabs.

91, Legacy, Igloo, Rebels most likely fight for 2-5.

ECE, Turtles, Moose and others for spots 6-10.

Legacy was awful this summer. Igloo should be 2 and 91 number 3.

I would agree with this. Only exception is mooselax. Most of the outlaw kids went there. They should be much improved. The legacy team is really bad.

I don’t know about that. I may be wrong but I’ve never seen igloo beat 91. They come close every time but always seem to lose in the end.

Yes, Rebels big turnout and split into 2 teams. Lots of new players at turnouts. If kids accepted spots will be legit, but that's a big IF.

The express B team is like a unicorn. Doesn’t exist. Every time you beat them, they claim it wasn’t the B team. It was the C team. If CoachC keeps his roster at 35 then the express B team is not good. If the the bottom half of Channys roster went to the B team, they would be good. The B team they fielded at World Series qualifier was decent. But only because channys roster size was limited due to World Series rules.

How many 2026 teams is Express having this year? Rebels has two and probably should stick to one .

The express B team is like a unicorn. Doesn’t exist. Every time you beat them, they claim it wasn’t the B team. It was the C team. If CoachC keeps his roster at 35 then the express B team is not good. If the the bottom half of Channys roster went to the B team, they would be good. The B team they fielded at World Series qualifier was decent. But only because channys roster size was limited due to World Series rules.

How many 2026 teams is Express having this year? Rebels has two and probably should stick to one .

It’s all about the Benjamin’s.

Think Express is only one settled at top, rest up for grabs.

91, Legacy, Igloo, Rebels most likely fight for 2-5.

ECE, Turtles, Moose and others for spots 6-10.

I believe ECE recently beat Rebels in a tournament. Then again I heard Rebels had a large turnout at tryouts.

There were only 2 kids left off of CoachC's roster for the world series. The team isn't a roster of 35. It was 27 last year. 2 of CoachC's kids played fo the B team. 1 middle and 1 defense.

Having watched club lacrosse for some time with my older boys and now with my 2026 son , i can honestly say this is an odd age group . Express is clearly number one and Igloo is clearly 2 , no other years has 91 been so irrelevant , usually they figure it out but it certainly seems like a coaching and a talent issue , that being said please don’t put ECE or moose and Express B in the same conversation as 91, that’s a joke !

I would agree with this. Only exception is mooselax. Most of the outlaw kids went there. They should be much improved. The legacy team is really bad.
Bump Legacy out of that top 5 and replace with S2S. They will be the 4th best team after Express, 91, and Igloo. Mooselax is a joke. Outlaws didn’t beat those teams…why would mooselax? Because a couple decent players went there?

I don’t think anyone was saying they were in the same conversation. Someone was just ranking teams. Express is clearly number one. Everyone else is in 2nd tier. I agree that this age group on Long Island just isn’t that good. I don’t know the head to head record but 91 always seems to beat igloo. I watched the the World Series game and 91 won in overtime with a bunch of 2027 kids. Great game.

Such a false statement. The problem with the 2026 year is that Li is saturated with to many clubs looking to make a buck. You could definitely but together two more top teams from Li besides Express A.

I guess reality doesn't matter to you. When has Igloo beat 91 recently? Also, 2026 91 added a new coach for the up coming season. They finished this past season very strong with their core kids and a few adds. The top 3 are Express, 91 and Igloo as usual. Nothing odd about this year. Same top three as years past.

Top 3 ? Yes. But after express it’s a big dropoff to number 2. That’s not typical of other years. 91 did pretty bad in the World Series. Without the machine kids they probably wouldn’t have qualified. Igloo didn’t even qualify. Igloo and 91 consistently get beat buy top teams.

Never really said mooselax would beat express, 91 or igloo. I just stated that they would be much improved. And for the record the outlaws have beaten shore to shore and 91

They would probably do ok against B teams. They were in AA brackets all summer and got crushed. Heard they also did not have a great turnout at tryouts.

Daddy coaches starting to back fire all those years maybe Zummo 2nd yr can turn it around.

I love LI lax and have been around the game 40 years, but I agree 2026 is odd with Express dominant and then a Massive drop off and no remote improvement in 91 over the years. My ‘26 isn’t a high level player but we have played all these teams and it’s an anomaly for sure. I have a ‘17, ‘19 and ‘22 who have seen it all and this is the worst level of play after Express I’ve ever seen for LI.

Half of your team were holdbacks this year and you played in the consolation bracket at NAL. Crabs are not relevant

I’d say it more likely bc there are 30+ kids on team locked in because many have family members in program. But, lack of daddy coaches is a huge selling point.

The holdbacks are coming to Express 26 and all of us parents know it. I feel bad for some of the on age kids because the couple of kids that are dropping down are very good and the on age kids cannot compete with them. Sounds like the exact same thing is going on at 91. It is a shame but it is the nature of the beast. If you think it is not going to happen you have your head in the sand because it happens every year, especially the year after the WSYL.

holdbacks are more the norm now, not the exceptions. It’s too bad, but it’s the reality. Becoming even more of an elite sport! Sad

COVID made holdbacks inevitable. I agree about it becoming more of an elite sport. Regular parents who can’t afford private school or a PG year are heading up the creek without a paddle. Not sure it will even matter if your kid is great on age. Unfortunate.

dreaming, the second team never did that well, was a decent B team but only reason why won some games was that they would mix in some AA players.

If you take away 2025 LIE’s best 15 players, you have a decent A team but no shot that will have a chance beating a top 5 team. No shot.

A bunch of kids on the WSYL roster are going to be moved down to the B team so I agree that they should be very good.

Why would they move down? No need to. All tournaments are grade based with no restrictions on roster size. This time of year Express B team parents have high hopes. Go back and read last years predictions. Enjoy the drive to Delaware.

Express 2026 CoachC is getting a handful of re-classed players. They are going to displace a handful of current 2026 players. They either go down or move on. Not a hard concept. 91 is doing the same thing. Nothing to do with B team parents. It has to do with 2025 kids moving down and taking spots.

I guess the influx of reclassed kids will make it even greater! Reclass is going to take over LI, the same way it has in MD and other places. It’s unfortunate but true. Now LI kids want the same advantages reclassify gets you and they need to compete for college spots with the kids that do it and have been doing it. No matter what anyone says… it gives the kid an advantage

I agree but at what point do you throw your hands up and say nature can't compete with a 10th grader coming down to an 8th grade team? Express C is the legit team but now where do the regular kids get a chance? Here's an even better question how do I get my kid to do another year of school? Obviously if I'm asking how this is done nobody has asked my son to do this but what is the process?
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2026-8th Grade Fall 2021/Summer 2022 - 08/19/21 03:36 PM
Honestly, I’m not sure if holding back would help a regular kid with the recruiting process. Just my thoughts, and I could be wrong. Maybe someone a little more versed in the recruiting process could weigh in here. I guess it depends on your ultimate goal.

But to repeat a grade, you send your kid to private school. For example, go to public for 8th and then private for 8th again.

There are 3 kids from Coach C 2025 going to the 2026 team. All 3 of the kids are actual 2026 students and were playing up a year. They aren't recalls kids and will now play with the team that they would've graduated with.

You seriously don’t see this happening more and more!? It may be crazy, but if the goal is to play in college and get heavily recruited, it’s going to happen. There is an advantage to it. I agree not fair and rules should be changed. But, in the meantime there is an advantage and as long as it is allowed and widely accepted, it’s going to happen more and more. If you thought your kid had a better chance at getting into a college he wouldn’t be able to without lacrosse by doing this… you wouldn’t think about it?! FYI , it happens in other sports as well! You don’t think an extra year or two of growing and training doesn’t get you better , you’re crazy! If it’s not fair, rules should be changed for club stuff.

I agree. Of the top 10 recruits in the country for 2022, 9 out of 10 were holdbacks. The number one recruit (from Long Island) will be 19 when he enters college in the fall of 2022. Us long islanders need to stop crying about holdbacks in other states. It’s alive and well here and will only continue to increase. Is what it is.

What is not true? 3 kids that played 2025 are not playing 2026, or they arent 2026 age?

They “lost” kids they cut and who left because they weren’t getting playing time. Add the kids from Igloo, S2S, Primetime and a few others from reclass. Oh yea, no more daddy coach. With the old team they beat Stealth and lost by 1 to Madlax. Beat 91MD and lost to Sweetlax(Grizzlies) in OT. This years team will be totally upgraded from last year’s.

They “lost” kids they cut and who left because they weren’t getting playing time. Add the kids from Igloo, S2S, Primetime and a few others from reclass. Oh yea, no more daddy coach. With the old team they beat Stealth and lost by 1 to Madlax. Beat 91MD and lost to Sweetlax(Grizzlies) in OT. This years team will be totally upgraded from last year’s.

What is difference of grizzlies and SL?

The new head coach is one of the directors. The other two, now assistants, are not some PAL daddy coach. A college coach and all star college/MLL player are pretty good assistant coaches regardless if they have kids on the team. Def no more daddy ball.

This is bananas... if you feel you need to cheat to get your kid into college and you don't think anything is wrong with that, well maybe you're the problem. Anyway, good luck with that.

There’s nothing similar. The Grizzlies are a “B” team and Sweetlax is the elite team that has already manhandled both 91 Storm and 91 MD. None of those games were close. I knows it’s a forum, but try and share some information rooted in facts.

This is a joke I assume? The difference is Sweetlax is ranked 2nd and the Grizzlies are ranked 35th, and Sweetlax would beat them by 15+ goals. It’s no badge of honor to lose to the Grizzlies by 1. Too funny.

I spoke to the head coach of from last year and he says there is no change in coaching for this coming year. Explain yourself

As noted previously 5 out of the ten top 2022 players were born after Sept 1, 2003 which is the cutoff off for the WSYL and US lacrosse and for the majority of states including NE, Maryland, NJ, PA etc. clearly these 5 are not holdbacks. The only 2004 player is a January bday so not much difference from Sept-December 2003 players. The holdbacks dominating in 7th/8th grade will be left behind in HS

So basically they have the same exact coaching staff from the WSYL. That team got smacked around pretty good. At this point you have to accept the team for what it is. It was a dominant team when younger but the daddy ball ruined it. This caused many of their best players to leave. It’s still a good team which will beat all the b teams. In the end they will still get smacked around by top teams in the region.

So basically it’s not the same coaching staff. The 2022 head coach is taking over and they have 7 new kids from the WS team. No 2027’s that got run over. And 4/5 kids left/got cut. So it’s going to be a lot different team. I guess we will know the results when they play games.

Age only matters at WSYL. Graduation year matters in the majority of states where lacrosse is played. A month and a day can be from any year when a child is held back a grade(s) to play lacrosse against smaller younger kids in the same graduation year.

I think that extra year is a huge advantage in a lot of developmental ways. Not just Lacrosse. It’s elitist though, as not everyone has the chance to have their kid “held back”. Public schools do not hold kids back even if they need to be held back for academics. (Really, the real reason too). So, again the people who can afford private schools take advantage of it.

I was told some states start the kids later for Kindergarten? Like MD at 5 to 6 years old? Or cut off for age is older? Is that true? Could explain some size differences in the grades?

Bullseye 🎯 A few good players left this year on top of the kids that left in the fall. They did cut a few. It's a shame when you think about it but life goes on.

New York has abnormally late cut-off dates for school and is one of the few places in the nation that allows 4 year olds in kindergarten. A child has to be 5 in order to start kindergarten in virtually every other state (I think Connecticut and NJ are the only other states that allow 4 year olds in kindergarten). If a child has a July birthday in these states and the parents hold him back he will be 6 when entering kindergarten. Most states have cut-off dates around Sept. 1.

Then congrats to top three ranked teams in the nation as they are all on age and they were the top World Series finish, Express, Tigers, Sweetlax. And Towermen also a great rank and finish and they are on age. Blackops also very good.Teams without holdbacks can win if coached and trained the right way like these teams.

Well it is my understanding or at least I was told that CoachC’s team is not an A team but a Double A team. The team below them is referred to as the B team. Some of the kids on the Double A are moving down to the B team, while some of the kids on the B team are moving to the C team. Coach W will only be coaching the B team. The C team will have it’s own coach staff this year. Hopefully this holds true and Coach W can get the B team playing good sound fundamental lacrosse.

How is Express North at 2026. Kind of confusing given the number of teams they have and just trying to get an idea of the club.
Can their top team compete with the top 10-20 teams in the country or are they more on par with second tier clubs.

Yes

Isn't the 2026 team coached by the Darien High School coach? He wins the Conn state championship every year. He is really cheating to win middle school summer games? Seems unlikely.

No idea who the coach is. But there were older kids playing for the 2026s at NLF. 99, 15, 20
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2026-8th Grade Fall 2021/Summer 2022 - 08/26/21 02:39 AM
There was a kid on that team with a beard at NLF. Kids who never played for express north 2026 started showing up. Saw them at NAL in June and different team at NLF. At NAL lost to hawks, BBL, igloo finishing winless in pool play. Barely beat a bad VLC in consolation. I saw that game. I see them again at NLF and now smoking everyone. Don’t know the coach and maybe the HS kids were missing from NAL. Team was also dirty. Lots of late hits and head hunting. Parents were cheering for that stuff. Coach knows what kind of product he put on field

The kids on the team know, the parents on the team know, opposing coaches know, opposing kids know, the tournament organizers know. There was an attempt to just sweep it under the rug, to save the reputations of the club and tournament organizers. But it was just too obvious and too many people know too much. The coach has sacrificed any semblance of reputation for a 7th grade lacrosse win.....

Yes

Isn't the 2026 team coached by the Darien High School coach? He wins the Conn state championship every year. He is really cheating to win middle school summer games? Seems unlikel

No idea who the coach is. But there were older kids playing for the 2026s at NLF. 99, 15, 20

There is a difference between kids who were required to play with the U14 at the World Series but who are still 26s (like the kids listed above) and kids which are 25 grad years but playing with the 26s. Yes lacrosse should require that kids get "carded' to play for their specific club, limit or eliminate guest players and have age based and not graduation based teams like almost every other youth sport. However, it does not. So can we all stop complaining about holdbacks and talk about the sport and not whine on about holdbacks. It is getting old.

These were not "holdbacks". These were kids starting 9th grade this year. Flat out cheating. There was another kid that played 2025 all year, reclassed 1 day before NLF, and then played 2026. Call that what you will (cheating or creative rostering). But they outright used 2025 players that did not reclass to 2026 from both their club and other clubs. Common knowledge, any attempt to deny is just trying to cloud the issue that they cheated......

It seems like the discussion is around non-holdbacks playing down a year. That is different than holdbacks.

East coast elite has a decent team. Alot of the outlaw kids went to mooselax so they will be much improved. I don’t know the east coast elite coaches to well. Mooselax guys seem pretty good and straightforward. Mooselax practices mostly north shore Huntington area. I believe east coast elite is more out east. Best of luck.

02 birthday in October is correct for most of the country. NY is one of the few states where the cutoff for entering school is December. Most states are September. So most of the kids with September through December of 02 are just entering freshman year

Express teams are already rostered. I would do Moose over East Coast. Moose is a solid B and should be much improved with the addition of a few Outlaws kids.

Those teams are already set. Tryouts were weeks ago for those teams. Moose directors are good solid guys who seem to care about the kids. Just my opinion.

Please don’t choose a B team by the rankings. Inquire about coaching and what you get for your money . Stay away from Rebels, 91, Rush and Empire in my opinion.

Best bang for your buck at all those teams is the Turtles . About 4/5 practices in already. Coach is very very committed.

SMH, too bad they are talking about the 2022 graduating class. So yes, he will turn 19 soon, in the fall of his SR HS year. Then 20 as a college freshman.

That's who I heard was going to coach. I don't know anything about player additions but he's a solid tough coach. That alone should improve them a little.

We will see this fall. Shock was in the tank prior to the last year and they fixed it. 2026 made some much needed improvements this season starting with the head coach and adding/subtracting players. Should have addressed it earlier, but at least they did now. It is true that some top kids tried out for 91 and weren't taken and are on Express now. And the hometown kids they picked over them aren't even on the team anymore. Hence the coaching change.

Agreed. Orange storm was a pretty dominant team when younger. We obviously know why that’s not the case anymore. You have to accept what they are at this point. Good team that will lose to top teams. No one that sees significant playing time is going to leave a top team to go play for them.

Please explain Daddy ball to me. If you have a child you can’t be a good coach? This makes no sense to me. Why do you hide behind this? Just say the guy stinks as a coach.

Please explain Daddy ball to me. If you have a child you can’t be a good coach? This makes no sense to me. Why do you hide behind this? Just say the guy stinks as a coach.

It’s pretty simple. If a dad coaches his sons team he will give his son more playing time regardless of their ability. On occasion their kid may deserve it. But more often than not they don’t As a result you have kids playing a lot but haven’t earned it. As a result you get pissed off parents who eventually leave. Some teams have 7 dad coaches. That’s 7 kids they will get the most playing time regardless of ability. They will also have their kids stay on the top team even if they don’t deserve it.

And all Daddy coaches do this and are bad? Why would anyone what there kid to play for a team coached by Daddies. You would think that there wouldn’t be any Daddy coached teams anymore.

Correct me if I’m wrong. But aren’t the other 2 coaches dads? If so daddy ball is still alive and well.
Are you Dad with a son on the team? If yes, why don’t you step up and offer to coach?

"Daddy" coaches are not the problem. It's the "Daddy" coaches that forget that they are "Coaches" first & "Dad's" second that are the problem. It's not east being at the dinner table explaining to your son/daughter & Wife for that matter why your own kid isn't playing but so it goes. Hit the rebounder, run some 40's, drop the twinkie etc....

Daddy coached kids get the sense of entitlement only when the Coach allows it.

Separate the two and coach your kid like you want your kid to be coached.

Easier said than done but the guys who get it can be great "Daddy" coaches and their kids will benefit much more from that approach.

My 12 yr old is only accepting offers from Cuse and Duke. But first, he has to do 3 years of middle school, 5 years of high school, and a post grad year. He's hoping to go in as a 21 year old freshman so that he can buy beers for all the other incoming freshman.

We're planning on spending 4 years of college tuition cost on travel teams, training, and private schools so that he can get a scholarship to college.

He plays on a daddy ball travel team, but says the coaching stinks. Which is weird because I coach the team. We're thinking about switching to a team where he'll be the 30th best player on the roster because that travel team is really going to help him get into college. It's OK that he'll never play in a tournament because he'll get sweet gear and he'll be able to tell his friends who are better than he is that his team will beat theirs.

And this is all set in stone. I'm not worried about burnout, drugs and alcohol, injuries, etc. This has to be determined before he has even gone thru puberty, otherwise he won't get into college...this all makes sense, right?

Daddy-ball happens in all sports. When I read this I thought someone was writing about my son's former football team with 7 Daddy-ball coaches. A new Daddy-ball coach and his son joined the team. His son played all the positions my son played for the previous years. My son stood on the sidelines and WATCHED football, only got the required 6-8 minimum plays and special team on-off the field plays. The Daddy-ball coaches sons played positions both on offense and defense - taking away opportunities to play from others. The seven Daddy-ball coaches sons also were the team captains week after week (picked by their dads, not by their teammates).

We left the team and joined one in a different league, but first talked to the head coach and the athletic director about Daddy-ball. It's not happening this season and all the boys are being developed and are PLAYING football. So talk to the coaches about the positions their sons play and about Daddy-ball when you choose a new lacrosse team. Don't expect miracles if you don't ask questions up front. The goal is for your son to have fun PLAYING lacrosse, learn how to PLAY lacrosse better, and improve his lacrosse IQ.

Great post. But more accurate to state "We're planning on spending 4 years of college tuition cost on travel teams, training, and private schools so that he can get a "partial" scholarship to college. With Title IX very few schools offer full scholarships for boys who do not play football and basketball. For example in socceri (he sport I played), mens could only offer 9 scholarships. We had 20 guys on scholarship. Yes there were a few full rides (not me) but most received 1/4 or 1/2 scholarships. Chasing after full scholarships in lacrosse in downright silly But this does not stop parents who do not understand the system and cannot actually judge ability talent or desire to think they are producing a scholarship kid. Just let them play and focus on this when they are in 11th grade.

That was an accurate response but I’m pretty confident the original poster was mocking the lax world these days, not looking for a legitimate response. To the original poster.. that was hilarious!

Your mistake is assuming that everyone is chasing a scholarship. I just love lacrosse. I love watching my son play a sport he is passionate about. I enjoy the tournaments with friends. I appreciate that my son works hard and it is fun seeing him develop as a person and an athlete. A scholarship would be icing on the cake, but it is not the end game for everyone.

Exactly. Not every single lacrosse dad is chasing the almighty “scholarship”. Most of us just love to watch a game that our kids love to play. Do we wish it wasn’t so expensive ? Sure. But that’s the beast us parents created. In the end sports has taught my kid many great lessons about life. The best part about travel lacrosse ? The quality time I get to spend with my kid. We’ve had lots of laughs on long car rides and stayed in some pretty crappy hotels. In the end for me it’s money we’ll spent. Regardless if he decides to play in college.

Amen!!! If you are going to pay the cost regardless (and can afford them) god bless and have fun. If you are paying the costs as an "investment" thinking you will see college dollars on the back end, you better be darn sure you kid is one of the top players in the nation at his position and be honest with yourself and get judgment from others that he actually has a shot at doing it. For me, I love the car rides to practices and game. I love watching games, tournaments and practices. For me driving to practice, it is the only time all week that we have one on one time together without siblings and spouses. That truly is priceless and I do it with open eyes that there might never be money for college.

Have fun. Enjoy the ride and know that for our 8th grade kids, we only have five years -- at most - - to spend time going to practices and games.

Could not say it better. Same with our family and our kids who play in boys and girls. Gives my kids alone time with Dad or Mom on the road trips and time will never get back. Time is short before they hopefully go to a good college and maybe lacrosse will help maybe it will not. In the end it is the time with them that will be remembered. good to see there are other parents on here who cherish the right things.

What roster size for the big guns ? 91, Express, Sweetlax, etc. How many kids do they bring to a tournament ?

In my experience, the top teams carry between 25-27 (which is way too many). However, they know they can carry more even if kids do not get playing time because the parents want to brag about playing on a top flight team.

Most second tier teams carry about 20. Because you cannot justify the cost of a second tier team while not get playing team.

I predict holdbacks will be one of the most discussed topics on here next year! Things will def change. It’s becoming the norm. , unfortunately!

Why bring up 2022 on a 2026 thread ? Not to mention holdbacks have been discussed WAY to much on here. Post your question on the 2022 forum.

In 2022, not the class of 2022. Which 2026 team will be tops in this upcoming season? Also, not initiating a moral debate on holdbacks. Simply recognizing that it may change the landscape. I hope you approve of this post Angry Elf.

Hmm, maybe the year 2022? Not the graduation year.

Pretty sure they're talking about calendar year 21-22 season.

How soon we forget about Towermen who beat two of the teams above and lost in OT to the other two.

What is “a good amount”? Like 3, or their whole team?

My older kid plays for S2S. Good team and getting lots of commits. Younger one plays on a good 26 other team, any feedback on s2s at this age? What is reason s2s won’t become a powerhouse at 26? Thanks.

Ya, like 16 holdbacks making their way from 25 to 26. Forcing all kids to reclass before 9th grade. They will have the best (oldest) team around.

haha so an entire team moved down? remains to be seen whether that will make them the best.

Express beats s2s by + 18 (being nice)

91 beats s2s by + 10 (give or take)

Igloo beats s2s + 8 (shutout)

The reason is simply that those teams are better. Express is the gold standard with 91 & Igloo not far behind. Every other team on L.I. is a glorified town team with nice helmets. Legacy is off the map and they were next up.

s2s is in the B/C category with the Rebels, Rush, Empire, Outlaws, ECE, and the other glorified town teams. Not sure how good [ChillLaxin] or ROAR is at this level but the top dogs are the top dogs and Express sits alone.

If you want to see where your team stands Coach C will set up a scrimmage and you'll know pretty quick. Glad that your sons team is getting commits but reality will set in quickly when the first wave of Express hits them. It's a mans game now. Be ready.

Express was scheduled to play the Rebels in a Delaware tournament last weekend. After Express was 2-0 and the Rebels were 0-2 in the tourney the schedule quickly changed so they wouldn't play each other. I guess the tournament director (Rebels owner) changed his mind seeing a blowout was in order.

Yes express would have easily crushed the Rebels. But based on the results of the first 2 games it was guaranteed to have express CoachC vs express jersey in the final. So they changed the 3rd game and had CoachC play jersey for the “final”. This way everyone could hit the road for a four hour plus drive.

Probably because express didn’t want to play each other in pool play unless it was a championship. Scheduling is not easy.

Exactly. If it wasn’t done that way express jersey would be tied with another team at 2-1 in pool play.

Jersey Express is not that good. Only reason why they advanced to bracket at World Series is because Coach C made sure they were in same pool as LI express along with 4 really bad teams. BBL, LE and Towermen would probably all beat Jersey Express pretty easily.

Coach C has nothing to do with the WS or Jersey express's bracket. Good try though.

I would agree with this assessment. Express and 91 are top dogs. After that I would include Legacy with S2S and Igloo. Then Rebels, ECE, Turtles, Empire, Etc.

That is the lamest excuse I've ever heard!. Rebels just didn't want to be embarrassed. When you come to a tournament, you come to play period! No matter who the team is on your schedule....I remember a Rebel post from a short while back that they were going to be a force to reckon with. So much for that...

You must be a 91 dad. If you have seen that team play the last couple of years, there is no way you would consider them a top dog. Legacy would get crushed by S2S and igloo at this age.

Ok, not a 91 dad or Legacy dad. Express and 91 I would consider the best 2026 team on Long Island. Legacy I would think is better than Rebels, ECE, Turtles, Empire etc. would this be correct ?

91 is a disaster. Legacy and those other teams you mention shouldn't even be in the conversation. I'd say Igloo is number 2. A soft number 2.

Coach C has nothing to do with the WS or Jersey express's bracket. Good try though.

You think it was coincidence? It is a known fact that the WS reaches out to program directors for feedback on the pools well before the event. That is not even a secret. Regardless, Jersey Express is probably the 4th best team in NJ at 2026. At best.

Legacy is to be determined....They were a disaster last season and wouldn't expect anything different season. Just a glorified town team...

Giving feed back and "making sure" are 2 different things. He has no more influence over bracket setup than the other local coaches for the event. As far as you ranking them #4 in the state i'd say that makes them a pretty decent team. I wouldn't say "Jersey Express is not that good". Enjoy your weekend of ranking 8th grade teams.

Express beats s2s by + 18 (being nice)

91 beats s2s by + 10 (give or take)

Igloo beats s2s + 8 (shutout)

The reason is simply that those teams are better. Express is the gold standard with 91 & Igloo not far behind. Every other team on L.I. is a glorified town team with nice helmets. Legacy is off the map and they were next up.

s2s is in the B/C category with the Rebels, Rush, Empire, Outlaws, ECE, and the other glorified town teams. Not sure how good [ChillLaxin] or ROAR is at this level but the top dogs are the top dogs and Express sits alone.

If you want to see where your team stands Coach C will set up a scrimmage and you'll know pretty quick. Glad that your sons team is getting commits but reality will set in quickly when the first wave of Express hits them. It's a mans game now. Be ready.

I would agree with this assessment. Express and 91 are top dogs. After that I would include Legacy with S2S and Igloo. Then Rebels, ECE, Turtles, Empire, Etc.

You must be a 91 dad. If you have seen that team play the last couple of years, there is no way you would consider them a top dog. Legacy would get crushed by S2S and igloo at this age.

Ok, not a 91 dad or Legacy dad. Express and 91 I would consider the best 2026 team on Long Island. Legacy I would think is better than Rebels, ECE, Turtles, Empire etc. would this be correct ?

91 is a disaster. Legacy and those other teams you mention shouldn't even be in the conversation. I'd say Igloo is number 2. A soft number 2.

Ok Express dad! There are kids on everyone of those teams that could take little Johnny’s spot on any given day .

Fair to say JE is downright terrible. At this age Towermen, BBL, LE, true are way better. Maybe patriot, riot, lakers are even or better. Any of the talent at 2026 or 2025 left last summer.

You clearly don’t follow this age group. JE, BBL and LE all competed at a similar level last year while Towerman was the best team in NJ, but not by a wide margin. TBD on this year as little to no games have been played by most teams

It's actually comical how much older the Jersey goalie is. Looks like he's 25. Plays like he's 10 though.

2x week practice
5 tournaments

It's understood that they play multiple sports. In our case we're able to make practice after football. A handful of kids show up late or not at all.
Overall pretty good turnout.

If you want to see where your team stands Coach C will set up a scrimmage and you'll know pretty quick. Glad that your sons team is getting commits but reality will set in quickly when the first wave of Express hits them. It's a mans game now. Be ready.

Express was scheduled to play the Rebels in a Delaware tournament last weekend. After Express was 2-0 and the Rebels were 0-2 in the tourney the schedule quickly changed so they wouldn't play each other. I guess the tournament director (Rebels owner) changed his mind seeing a blowout was in order.

Yes express would have easily crushed the Rebels. But based on the results of the first 2 games it was guaranteed to have express CoachC vs express jersey in the final. So they changed the 3rd game and had CoachC play jersey for the “final”. This way everyone could hit the road for a four hour plus drive.
Was CoachC in Delaware? I thought he was in Jersey???

You again. The “didn’t even qualify” Towermen finished the summer 6th in the nation. 5th if you don’t include the True National team who didn’t play a single game vs a team in the top 5. But yeah, they stink because they didn’t even qualify. You are the definition of sour grapes.

Why would that happen? I would think the answer is no. But I am interested in the reason for your question.

Nice caddy shack reference. The nuk who said Towermen lost in qualifiers (they went 3-2 actually) is still sour grapes and it how well they did at the actual World Series (5-2) compare you their kid’s team.

NCAA has teams who qualify by winning their conference tournaments and also teams who get an at large bid based on overall record and strength of schedule. World Series did it the same way this year because they wanted the best 24 teams they could get and Canada bowed out due to Covid. So saying a team didn’t qualify and still got in is fine with me.

Express North 2026 used 2025 players at NLF. Not holdbacks. True 2025 players. And some from outside their own club. Cheated. Well know, documented. Almost were removed from tournament because of it. That is not a team.

Yes they should have been. It was actively discussed. But the damage to the Express brand as well as the NLF must have been too much for the powers at be to disqualify, especially once they made the final. Which they did, by the way, after beating Express LI in the semis.

Most teams carry 24-26 kids and most club coaches will mainly play their top kids in highly competitive games . So how does this help the 10-8 players that sit on the bench get exposure?

Playing time is another concern. If your son is getting meaningful minutes on a team with lots of talent then it is a positive. If your son isn’t getting meaningful minutes, he should consider moving to a team that will get him on the field more.

You also cannot underestimate the importance of club connections. Who does your coach know, and will he place a call for your son if needed?

As did BBL and JE so what?

So what? So let's dance! Previous poster said they didn't qualify, I was pointing out they did and made the final 8.

Nice caddy shack reference. The nuk who said Towermen lost in qualifiers (they went 3-2 actually) is still sour grapes and it how well they did at the actual World Series (5-2) compare you their kid’s team.

NCAA has teams who qualify by winning their conference tournaments and also teams who get an at large bid based on overall record and strength of schedule. World Series did it the same way this year because they wanted the best 24 teams they could get and Canada bowed out due to Covid. So saying a team didn’t qualify and still got in is fine with me.

Yes. With COVID some teams were lucky to get in to 24. The top 4 teams would still be in even without the hey COVID and even though you would not have made it in in a normal year you are in. The Jersey and my qualifiers was where the real competition was anyway.

If you are a top kid you don’t need a call. It is players 15 to 24 that need to really think about staying.

Express North made it to the finals of the NLF this past summer. I assume they improved their roster at tryouts. Seems like they would be in the conversation.


Express North 2026 used 2025 players at NLF. Not holdbacks. True 2025 players. And some from outside their own club. Cheated. Well know, documented. Almost were removed from tournament because of it. That is not a team.

If true, they should have been disqualified.


Yes they should have been. It was actively discussed. But the damage to the Express brand as well as the NLF must have been too much for the powers at be to disqualify, especially once they made the final. Which they did, by the way, after beating Express LI in the semis.

Express runs the NLF. There was no disqualification because there are no rules. Either way, the team was and will likely be pretty good and should be in the discussion as a top team.

4 pools of 6 teams. Top 2 teams from each pool advance to quarters.

Pretty sure it’s the opposite. Express has three teams and the bottom team is in the bracket withTB. Also the tournament is still advertising for one more 2026 B team to sign up.

No it’s a C team ! Express has A,B and C . AAA is a travel hockey term. Clubs tell you this to make B team parents feel better and to get more money out of you . So Express B and C team will be at this tournament! And yes Express does have the best A team in the country!

LI Express historically had 3 teams in the 2026 age group:

1) CoachC
2) Weiczorek - Black
3) Weiczorek - Orange

CoachC won the WSYL. Black and Orange were typical B teams.

I've heard that Express would move players up and down, across teams at different tourneys, but now, they have an openly mixed team registered in the Columbus Day tourney called "LI Express CoachC/Weiczorek".

Discuss...

Coach C always mixes A/C players for his third team. This is because he doesn’t have enough C players to make a full team but still wants the parents money. Trust us no one is jealous.

Who said anything about AAA? We're talking about the bracket the teams are in for the Columbus Day tournament. We said 2nd and 3rd team.
Why do you feel the need to classify a team that clearly has nothing to do with you.
Move on.

Exactly. Lot of conjecture for parents who claim to not care or believe in Express.
Want to know what's really going on?
Call CoachC. He'll tell you.
He'll also invite your kid down to a practice.
Why is that so threatening? Because he's always working every angle to make his team/s better?
Where is the fault in that? Isn't that what club lacrosse is about?

That is a great question. Club lacrosse can certainly be about working every angle to make the team better (win more). It can also be about picking a team at the tryout and developing the players on the team. I prefer the latter but many people prefer the former. It is just 2 different approaches.

Spoke to a parent from 91 today and his response was "not my decision but why go to Delaware just to get our butts kicked in?" Gotta say I can't blame the team. Either not the most talented team or major coaching errors years ago.

91's game plan has been beat up on weaker teams = Better for the brand. How they were ranked #42 last season is beyond me. They went 2-4 at the WSYL, goes to show how good they are at a national level.

The 91 goalie? He's still good. Everyone else has caught up to him though. Seems like most goalies are pretty equivalent at this age. Of course there are a couple that may be slightly better but overall pretty even now.

Their team was gutted due to years of poor coaching decisions and no willingness to admit their mistakes and make changes. That isn’t the fault of those boys. Hopefully last year was a wake-up call for 91 and they made some improvements. Better late than never. Some holdbacks may deliver much needed help. Btw, coming on here and bashing a particular kid in a particular position is the lowest form of intelligence. You clearly lack any self-awareness, so let me tell you this, “You’re a bad person.” Now you know. Feedback is a gift.

Not a 91 parent, but I wish those boys well.

Yet here you are, on a lacrosse forum, spending your time talking about it… if you’re not going; why do you care? And if you haven’t been paying attention, lacrosse is exploding across the country.

91 will not beat the Hawks. 91 will continue to play the B circuit and beat up on weaker teams. They can not and will not compete with the top teams. Bad for the brand to get smoked by the likes of the Tigers, Hawks, Express, 3D, Sweetlax and the list goes on...If hey were that good, they would have been in Delaware this past weekend instead of playing a B tournament on Long Island.

You can stop riding the jock of the Hawks. Pretty obvious that is over now that they need coaching instead of having bigger kids. Facts are facts and it's in the results from the last year. Daddy's boy is done at X

When Hawks are soon forced to play with shot clock wide margin losses will be brutal and every game. Turtle stall ball dont work. Lucky to come in top 5 in HOCO this year.

There were A and B levels at that tournament just no AA. They
played in the A bracket and easily destroyed everyone. The team is definitely improved, They recruited and have many new players. No reason to jump into a AA bracket when this would have been the first time the team has played together and kids are still learning the plays etc. Smart move on the coaches decision. They definitely have AA talent. That’s for sure.

It's people like you that perpetuate the need and desire for AA designations. You know what it really means? They'll charge you more money calling something AA for an A level program. Stop calling it AA, A and B. It's A or B, that's it

I just learned that our organization may cancel or modify our winter training due mostly to players vaccination status. The facility happens be in NYC under the mandate. At this age all children are eligible. People are actually angry with the director's for not finding an alternate facility. Too bad. Here's is my 2 cents. Its a choice, yes, but if NYC mandates you must be vaccinated and you are not, than STHU about it and stay home. Those that chose to be vaccinated will be happy to attend with you. Again you made your choice now stop crying about it.

The Trumpers are going to storm your house, lol. I was also shocked at how few kids and parents are vaccinated on our team. Even more puzzling is there are quite a few teachers who refuse to vaccinate. I guess when your idea of a good time is strolling the sidelines of games and practices screaming with red solo cup in hand, being rational is too much to ask.

There were A and B levels at that tournament just no AA. They
played in the A bracket and easily destroyed everyone. The team is definitely improved, They recruited and have many new players. No reason to jump into a AA bracket when this would have been the first time the team has played together and kids are still learning the plays etc. Smart move on the coaches decision. They definitely have AA talent. That’s for sure.

It's people like you that perpetuate the need and desire for AA designations. You know what it really means? They'll charge you more money calling something AA for an A level program. Stop calling it AA, A and B. It's A or B, that's it

Hey man, I didn’t come up with these designations. Someone did but it ain’t me. The fact is there are A and B tournaments and AA.

A team 91 parent living in denial! You played in a B Tournament. If you wanted to play in an A Tournament, you would have been in Delaware this weekend! If you are that good, you should have put up 15+ goals per game or more in the tournament you played in. Being ranked #42 as of September 2, 2021 is no threat to anyone. The top teams have no problem playing you and are up to any challenge. That's just how they are. They play whom ever is put in front of them. Until you play a team outside a B bracket and win, best you say nothing! Say less and play more...

Great idea, lets waste an entire weekend driving in/out DE to play a meaningless tournament when half our athletes are still playing football. You've got it all figured out.

Oh, it's the old football excuse....Middle school is Monday-Friday. Many of the boys play both. So obviously the missing kids on your team are hold backs, re-classed or in high school. What was the excuse for the spring season and the World Series. Football!

Nah. Whole team there except for a couple, no reclasses this year. Just a gritty tough team. Gave LIE their only game this weekend and pushed them to the end. Should have beat Sweetlax. Will be a top 4 team next spring and summer.

Not a 91 dad, but I watched the 2026 Team play this weekend. It's a much better team than the spring/summer. They cleaned up against a decent Legacy team, a decent Moose team, and a bad Express team. From what I saw, they are back into the top 3 on Long Island. But they are still nowhere near CoachC 2026. Tough to say how they will fare against the top 10 in the nation, but its an improved team.

If half of your team does not attend your winter training,Im sure you still want them to pay for your son’s
training?
Maybe you should STFU and let your team sort it out. Plenty of better places to train than in Queens.
Oh and yes I’m vaccinated.

MD doesnt have middle school football. We play county ball where games are on the weekend and not run by the school system.

You're "not a 91 dad" but you watched them play 3 games? No, you ARE a 91 dad. They are hardly better than they have been in the past. They are not a good team.

Congratulations Team 91! You ruled the Blatant Tournament this past weekend. Keep playing in B Tournaments and you will continue to be the power house you think you are. US Club Lax Rankings as of September 2, 2021: Legacy #124, Moose Lax #141, Rebels Inferno #191, LILC #143, Rush #247, Express Black #155, Express Orange #201 & True Blue #154. Come back and let everyone how good you are when you decide to play in competitive tournaments and beat competitive teams.

Most have already heard this is Igloo. The director waited until he collected their 1st installment before letting people know about the requirement. Yes, NYC requires... however, the director (and everyone else) knew that in advance and chose not to throw it on the parents until afterwards. Then, on top of that, he asked parents to complete a survey asking if they were, weren't or planned to get vaxxed before they start indoor. Vax or no vax (we're vaxxed), it's someone's choice and, if someone hasn't chosen to have their 12-15 kid vaxxed at this point, they shouldn't feel the need to do so for indoor lacrosse training just because its in NYC limits.

They've been practicing same spot for years. You are correct it's a choice. No vax no winter training, it's that simple.

Saw them play at Columbus Day tourney. Decent squad, made up of a bunch of kids from other teams. Recognized a few from Igloo, S2S, and RVC. Seems like it may just be a tournament team or side gig. Definitely some good players but also a few others who may not even get time on B teams.

once again I will say. Express is clearly the best team in Long Island, that is their top AA team. They have shown that their other teams are Ok at Best. no different then most teams. The Express AA team is not great due to anything more then their marketing machine. Each and every year they poach players that have been developed on other teams to be on their team making it stronger. So lets stop bashing all the other teams in Long Island because they are essential to Express AA successes. Past Express, Igloo and 91 are the next level. Then there is another rung down for some other teams, then probably the full B teams. Which is fine, because as I said look at where all the new guys that Express Igloo and 91 poach they come from all the other teams, and then some express rejects who dont want to be on their B and C teams, go and play in another org. The only thing that sorts this out is the marketing. Express happens to be the best at it, and 91 is right there with them. All the others are second tier marketers and if they dont have the money and infrastructure around them they fail, like FLG.

Express is the best at this age level because they deliver the best product. Period. The amount of lacrosse that the team plays is head and shoulders above the other programs. They have already played in more games since September than most other programs play in an entire year. Facts. The kids work their tails off and get better. It isn’t a happy accident.

So lets stop bashing all the other teams in Long Island because they are essential to Express AA successes. Past Express, Igloo and 91 are the next level. Then there is another rung down for some other teams, then probably the full B teams. Which is fine, because as I said look at where all the new guys that Express Igloo and 91 poach they come from all the other teams, and then some express rejects who dont want to be on their B and C teams, go and play in another org. The only thing that sorts this out is the marketing. Express happens to be the best at it, and 91 is right there with them. All the others are second tier marketers and if they dont have the money and infrastructure around them they fail, like FLG.

Express is the best at this age level because they deliver the best product. Period. The amount of lacrosse that the team plays is head and shoulders above the other programs. They have already played in more games since September than most other programs play in an entire year. Facts. The kids work their tails off and get better. It isn’t a happy accident.

Express passed a team like the Hawks when they decided coaching and skill is more important then watching the coaches son go back and forth at X doing nothing.

Everyone sees Hawks and Rage for what they have become but for Hogan and Rage. Rage spends every game trying to push, yell and will #1 to be the star of the Hawk’s declining offense. Meanwhile the Crabs went 6 0 this weekend with a 63 goal differential. Changing of the guard in MD coming as playing the best players available overshadows let’s try to run another clear out from x for the same guy.

No thanks. You're too soft for this sport. Go to the women lacrosse forums panZZee.

You're a disgusting individual. This forum should have been shutdown years ago due to the personal attacks on children but this post crosses so many lines it's despicable. Whoever posted the above I hope and pray that you never have to deal with the loss of a child because you deserve it. Whoever moderates this site shame on you for allowing this filth to actually make it on here. Take this nonsense down.

Agree, that human is despicable! But, disagree the forum should be shutdown because of fools like that. There is a lot of good information and discussion on the forum as well. You will always have losers spewing hateful things in life. That will never change! They have to live with themselves and the maker will judge!

Dudes reading comments on an anonymous website and getting triggered. Get over it Mr Softee.

Unfortunately the parents don’t realize only the top 11 chosen children will be recruited to the top colleges . If you think your child is on the cusp you should start looking for a program that your kid will get his chance to be seen! If he plays on the AA team he already has what it takes but just has to get the chance to be seen. No one see's the kids sitting on the bench. 3,2,1 let’s hear the comments from the one same Express arrogant dad.

Maybe leave mention of specific kids out of your post?? Just a thought. No need to call out a 13/14 year old kid.

[ChillLaxin] about lacrosse, they just get the best talent. Pure and Simple. Past many of there top teams at each grade level. Express is garbage. It was funny watching Express dads at Blatant, being all upset that their team was getting its butt kicked by 91 and some how thinking that wasn't going to happen because these Express B kids were someone great because they were once on the AA team and got rejected down.

Who you play matters when you spout off about how dominant you are in a fall ball tournament. If you want to be relevant and earn respect you should start playing tournaments against real competition. You're not going to get it by trashing teams or kids on this board.

Top 5 teams on Long Island right now as per fall ?

Express AA
91 Orange Storm
Legacy ?
Igloo
Mooselax ?
Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2026-8th Grade Fall 2021/Summer 2022 - 10/25/21 05:30 PM
Express AA is the top obviously because they took the top talent,
after that is 91 and Igloo, they are fairly close.

then after that it is a garbage shoot. Legacy and Moose showed they couldn't hang with 91, they wouldn't really with igloo either, although I think 91 is a click higher then igloo.

Legacy and the rest are after that, ECE, Turtles, Etc.

Could be wrong but I believe there were only 3 kids on the Express B team that were once on the A team. But keep bragging about beating that B team 91 dad. Express A would absolutely make you cry if they played. 91 won’t let that happen though.

no question that express AA would beat 91, no one was arguing that. But express b is not good and they took losses like crazy and were beaten like a drum, so stop making it like they are so good. And the argument can't go back to their AA team as we acknowledged they are the best in the country probably. So what is the point. Express takes the money of those B team kids like they are better then they would be, but its just not true, they might as well be on the rebels.

No one said that the B express team is an A team. The conversation was that 91 isn’t a good team. Are you actually comparing 91 to the express B team?? The organizations 2nd team. Actually taking pride in playing in a B tournament!! Laughable. Pat yourself on the back buddy. You’re paying A team prices to play in B talent tournaments.

I find it funny that 91 dad always pounds his chest when they beat B teams. The question remains as to why they weren’t in Delaware with all the other AA teams. Rhetorical question I suppose.

not a 91 dad, just an observer. the express dads were on the side disappointed they were getting their jerks beat by 91. stomping feet, etc. what did they think was going to happen. 91 team which is much stronger beat the express B team. it was laughable watching the express parents feel like just because they were wearing express helmets like somehow that was going to help them. They were obliterated. So yes you are right, maybe 91 wouldn't have fared well down in Delaware, dont know, but to think express B thought they had a chance against 91 is like I said, laughable.

I am sure the AA team will get a chance to maybe beat up on 91 at some point, but express has to stop with there ridiculousness like they think these other teams are so good, they are no better then any of the other teams.

91 Orange, supposedly the #2 team on LI, beats the express B team 9-2 (just looked up score on tourney machine). I’d say that’s not beating a drum or a laughable game. I’d think the #2 team on the island should win more like 15 or 20-2. But that’s just me. A team vs a B team should show a little more domination. I will admit that I’ve seen 91 play in a previous game and they look a little better than last year. Maybe credit to the new coach.

Don’t believe the Hype about Express B. They are just another B team with parents that have high hopes of coach C moving them up.

Really? 91 teams have always strutted with that we are best attitude starting with 91 Exreme on down. . Remember 2020 Crush and the self proclaimed best club team ever motto. It’s all good, boast on, and people shouldn’t take so seriously…

“Not a 91 dad”. So you’re just a creep watching an 8th grade game when all other 8th grade teams were playing. You’re probably on a list that’s outlawed from being near school grounds. Nasty human.

I am sure the AA team will get a chance to maybe beat up on 91 at some point, but express has to stop with there ridiculousness like they think these other teams are so good, they are no better then any of the other teams.

Disappointed and stomping feet!?? LOLLL.y son plays on the Express B team and I can assure you that was not the case. It was plenty of discussion as to why 91 Orange Storm, a supposed A team, was playing in a supposed B team tournament. I congratulate your son on his championship sir. Enjoy your season.

Why should their be discussed 91 Storm are what they are, likely the 2nd or 3rd best team on Long Island. I can tell you who is not the 5th best team on Long Island and that is the Express B team. That in itself is laughable. and 9-2 is really a blowout. People who feel the need to drop a 19-2 on someone are just butt. Both teams get nothing out of that.

91 is and has been one of the most inconsistent teams I have ever seen. They should be an A team, but they can’t compete with A teams at this point. They have some good players and I can say at least 2 great coaches, don’t know anything about the 3rd. Express AA would not maybe beat them up, they would absolutely destroy them. Let’s not waste our breath pretending that team is not #1 on LI by a long shot…hands down, no question. There was no stomping of feet by Express B parents. This is a comment from a troll, maybe a parent whose kid used to play for one of the Express teams and is a little bitter about how the B team is doing. Express B is a good B team. There is excellent coaching and consistency. They have added some great players this year and dropped some others. I think they have the potential to compete with or beat the 91 team in the Spring if 91 does not improve.

HAHAHAHAHAHAH, I maybe could read through the post and at least it sounded like you had some sense, but two facts. One a lot of Foot Stomping going on, and 2, you are absolutely dreaming that the B team will ever come close to beating 91, just foolish drivel. Yes you are right they may beat them as soon as CoachC brings 5 of his AA guys to blend in, that is his classic move so he can say how amazing his B team is. Stop Kidding yourself, you are probably the foot Stomper.

Legacy and the rest are after that, ECE, Turtles, Etc.

Express didn’t “take” top talent. Top talent went to them.

Sounds like your kid didn’t make the Express A or B team? Or possibly sat the bench for a season or 2? There are 0 Coach C kids going back and forth between the teams. The teams have changed over the years, yes. According to some other parents in this forum, sounds like 91 was the filling in with other kids that aren’t on their team? I am amazed at how jacked up you are. I mean, your typed out laughter has a shining vibe.

Not a 91 parent. I see nothing wrong with them wanting to get some confidence and playing in that division. Maybe it gives them a little confidence when they clearly go against the much stronger teams. Express B is not one of those strong teams. And the Express B parents can make themselves feel better that they are shelling out big bucks on a product they can get anywhere. Its sad.

1. The price we are paying is comparable to the other large clubs on LI.
2. I didn't realize that you could get Nationally ranked HS coaching anywhere. Please point me in that direction!
3. Do you realize that this B team everyone is so bent about, has already had 4 tournaments and practices a minimum of 2x a week.
4. So what 91 beat them. With all their chest thumping, they better have beat them. Especially with their guest stars. You knock C for bringing players, at least they play for the club and don't show up with different helmets. Any team can be beat on any day. To think there's absolutely no chance that another team could be competitive is just ignorant.
5. It still amazes me at how many of you are so concerned with how we spend our money. Would you also like to manage my investments?

I agree that LIE is currently the best 2026 team around. I do have a hard time agreeing with the best talent coming from LI, at least at 26. If that were the case, why is there such a drop off from them to the #2 LI team? NC, NJ, MD, and Mass all have multiple teams ranked ahead of the 2nd ranked LI team. This has been debated on here in the past. A quick scroll down some top rosters will show you that there is way more geographical diversity on the top rosters than you think. It is not the 1990s anymore. The game has grown.

They are currently the best team because they have the best player at the most important position in the game. We've seen that without him, they drop down a notch or two.

Regardless of how good each of the Express teams actually is they do seem to do a good job of getting the kids playing alot. Lots of practices and tournaments - it's impressive. I think B teams usually get "short changed" but it sounds like Express is committed to getting the B team playing alot.

I am not sure if that is the case. There are some kids/parents that have been with the team from the start. They know they won in a B tournament. I don’t think they have a false sense of pride with that. They know the team is inconsistent and that it does have a lot of potential…even with losing some decent kids. We all know how it goes, season to season these teams drastically improve or drastically fall apart. I think there is potential for 91 to do better, but I also think there is a lot of potential for Express B team to improve and compete with 91.

Dream on Express B parent, feel better about the 40 G you invested all along, and then got demoted. You could have paid your kids freshman year college tuition. The team is a B team no better then any of these other B teams and there are a million of them, and its a good thing that their are because Express AA would have no one to pouch from these other teams. There is a reason that Coke sells the most soda and it has nothing to do with what's in the drink. Marketing. Marketing Marketing, and Express has the Market corned on that. 91 is Also experts at this but that is why they are virtually 1-2 at every age group on the island, only comes down to who sells the best kids parents better. I can tell you that Rebels or FLg or any of the others are not selling to the top kids like Express or 91.

No different than Team 91 paying A team prices and playing in B tournaments...All the teams they played in the Blatant Tournament and dominated, there was not one team amongst them that was ranked lower than 124. To be exact the rankings of the teams that played were from 124-247. So if that's where you want to play, be my guest. I think anyone that left the team, left for a reason and saw the writing on the wall.

Dream on Express B parent, feel better about the 40 G you invested all along, and then got demoted. You could have paid your kids freshman year college tuition. The team is a B team no better then any of these other B teams and there are a million of them, and its a good thing that their are because Express AA would have no one to pouch from these other teams. There is a reason that Coke sells the most soda and it has nothing to do with what's in the drink. Marketing. Marketing Marketing, and Express has the Market corned on that. 91 is Also experts at this but that is why they are virtually 1-2 at every age group on the island, only comes down to who sells the best kids parents better. I can tell you that Rebels or FLg or any of the others are not selling to the top kids like Express or 91.

How does it feel paying 91 A team prices and actually being on a B team though?

Guess it feels the same as all teams other then Express AA.

I have to disagree with “product you can get anywhere”. Express coaches and training for the A and B teams is superior. They practice 2x a week year round with 3-6 coaches at every practice. The coaches have brought winning teams to the WSYL and run top high school programs. That can not be said for other programs, including 91. These are coaches, not Dads. You get what you pay for.

Facts. I just wish they would do this with all grades and limit the roster size.

It can be said for 91 skippy. Probably the best goalie who ever played and championship winning coach, a college D1 coach practicing 2x a week. I’ll take that over CoachC$$ any day. See you in DE.

This is true. My kids play but as a father of a Princeton face off kid said. You can buy the PLL for 7k.

Express has the 2026, 91 has the 2027 grade. But they both are marketing geniuses and ahead of everyone else in this regard. There is a pecking order and kids are just flowing up there. Has nothing to do with the express and 91 coaches. There are plenty of amazing lacrosse coaches in Long Island. People are chasing a dream and express and 91 are cashing in on it. Good for them.

not true

I am agreeing with the Not true guy. Some of the dad coaches are some of the very best in the business. I much rather have an astute mind of the game dad coach, instead of some washed up bum guy who didn't even play in college, and is a substitute teacher, and wants to make some extra dough.

Wow low level B. I guess turtles igloo B or rebels must be C teams then? Or are you a s2s or Legacy parent that thinks your kid is on AA when they are maybe A or possibly B. Many teams overrated in there own minds because of the parents. Unfortunately. Really there are only 3 AA teams on LI and maybe 2 A. After that rebels ECE turtles igloo b are all battling for top of the B’s. We will see how that ends up in June or July.

If I remember ECE had a huge turnout at tryouts and could have made two teams but instead cut it to 1. They should be good.

Outside of LI, it’s AA, A, and B. Kinda dense but that is how they set up the tourney divisions. I guess nobody wants to play for a C team. BTW, LIE Coach C is the only AA team on LI for 2026 right now. They will beat the next best LI team by 10.

HAHAHAHAAHHA this is actually really funny Shore 2 Shore Dad, maybe if you stopped playing in B tournaments to feel good about yourself and actually won a game in A tournament someone could take you serious. But losing constantly is bad for the brand so jump in those second divisions like at Tri Star. Pathetic.

Under that logic there are only three A teams Express 91 and Igloo, everyone else is B.

And 91 and Igloo Aren't strong A when you consider some of the other teams from other areas.

Sweetlax is a clear #2. They have an excellent team and consistently play Express in very close games. They are definitely better than Tigers and Express North based on recent play.

You can't consider Team 91 an A team until they start playing in A tournaments and stop hiding behind all these weak B tournaments that they like to dominate. Just a continuation of last season. The likes of the Hawk's, Sweetlax, LI Express, Tigers, Express North, 3D New England, etc are more than up to playing you! Until you decide to play competitive teams, I suggest staying quiet and touting how good you are. As previously stated, you haven't played a team ranked better than 124 by US Club Lax.

So no holdbacks on 2026 Express............???

None. Zero.

Many holdbacks and a double holdback pole.

Many? That is another lie, 3 holdbacks, no double

Hey! My 9th grade 2025 son MIGHT do a PG year one day so I should feel good about him playing for an 8th grade 2026 team this year, right? That’s not bold faced cheating, right? Everyone else is doing it, right??

I wouldn’t call it cheating but for any parent to hold your kid back for sports is crazy and pretty embarrassing in my eyes 👀

Holding your kid back is not cheating at all. We are taking about kids NOT being held back in school but are holding back in lacrosse. A 9th grader who is in 9th grade playing for a 2026 team for example. This is happening at the elite 2026 level. That is just cheating.

Met the attackman they flew up from Florida for the day on the bus ride back to the airport. Counted seven miscellaneous helmets playing for the Crabs. Nothing legitimate about them playing on age. Lots of holdbacks and guest players. It’s amazing what these coaches will do to win an 8th grade lacrosse game.

There will always be cheaters in life. It will always catch up with them in the end, in one way or another.

LIE 2026 proved once again that they are the most skilled on age team in the nation. They lost by a goal to a mostly 2025 crabs team. Had they played against players their age, Crabs 2027 which is mostly made up of 8th graders, it would have been an embarrassment. The system is broken.

Get over it and move on. When you beat the Hawks a few weeks ago you didn't want to hear anything about all of their injuries and/or missing players. Now you lose to the Crabs and it's holdback and guest player whining. We'll see you again in the spring.

What about the Express holdbacks? And stop with the most skilled team Bro. They have the best player at the most important position. Minus him, they are with the rest of the pack.

This is an idiotic statement. High school is high school. The rules for high school are 9th through 12th grade. Only the very top 9th graders will make a varsity roster. Club is different. You are theoretically collecting the best talent across an age group to compete. How about we take a group of high school seniors (2021) and put together the top talent in the region and go compete against another regions top freshman talent (2025). Are you really saying no difference? You cannot be that dense. I will give you once they hit junior year, the difference shrinks between juniors and seniors. But freshman vs. seniors, please. How about you quit cheating and just field an age appropriate team and see where the cards fall.

My son plays on LI Express. I’m just happy that he is playing against great competition on a weekly basis. Why care so much about a few holdbacks or a goal or 2 win/loss. Happy to watch my son grow and play healthy athletics. Proud of how hard he works, the effort he puts in and person he’s becoming.
People need to calm it down a bit on here and realize how lucky you are.

Spoken like a holdback parent. When you see your 12 year old get demolished by a 15 year old, talk to me then. Always amazes me how people can twist and turn to justify something that is obviously unethical.

No my son is 13. He has apparently been playing against many teams with hold back players for years though, according to this website.

Despite holdbacks on both sides, this was a great game. The parents on here crying over a 1 goal loss need to gain a little perspective. It shouldn’t always be about winning. It should be about playing great competition and getting better. Both teams did that this weekend. If you are offended by holdbacks (my son is not one of them before you pounce), lacrosse is probably the wrong sport for your son. Beautiful day, beautiful facility, great lacrosse. I’ll take it. Just enjoy the journey and know that the boys will probably get them next time. And if they don’t, that is ok, too.

The most disgruntled parents on here are the holdback victims on the "WSYL" Team. Re-class is the Coach C recipe. He's going to feed that to anyone who will listen. Now what is the kickback to get that tuition at Chaminade or St. A's.... Keep feeding the beast. Let's ask the next question. Who's the coach at the re-class school? Ohhh Mr. Express himself. Ponzi scheme that parents will not hopefully figure out, 2026 Express kids just got face smashed by 2025's stealing their positions. Pay up young schmuck parents and you'll be at Air Force..
Your head is in the clouds and you've all been duped. Keep paying and keep traveling! You are all fool's and you know it! Truth!!!

You're a lost and you're teaching your son to be a lost. Cheating is cheating and you're okay with your son being tossed aside. I can go to a gunfight with a bow & arrow and appreciate the technology of a rifle in my face. I'm still dead. The RIFLE WINS.

Do me a favor. Just say you're ok being a submissive lost. Your son will never play and you and your wife will wear the gear and be happy. lost's beget losers and by that post you're a hang-on lost. Move on with some dignity and realize that the 2025 kids are better!

Wow, just amazing. The "just have fun" crowd are like the useful stunads. They are either benefiting from the existing system, woefully ignorant, unethical, or maybe all. Many players in the club lacrosse scene are there to be in a highly competitive environment to improve their skillset with likeminded players. That is the "fun" for them. What is not fun is not having a level playing field. If you are just out to "have fun" and not worry about the lopsided landscape, go play on your town team. I highly doubt this "have fun" nonsense you spew is really how you feel, it is just a way to somehow permit your conscience to ignore the cheating, probably because you are one of the few benefitting from the corrupt environment. You think this "have fun" position puts you on a higher moral ground, like you do not care. I think it makes you into a useful dunce, with ignorance and no backbone to stand up to something that is clearly wrong.

The game in question was a 1 goal game that went back and forth the entire time. That sounds like a level-playing field to me. If my son has to play against holdbacks for the other organization to put forth a competitive team, I’ll take that any day of the week vs. beating a team by 10 + goals. But I am one who believes that winning is not the most important thing. Getting better is. And for the record, my son plays for an incredibly competitive team AND has fun. Imagine that. Now go kick rocks.

You're a lost and you're teaching your son to be a lost. Cheating is cheating and you're okay with your son being tossed aside. I can go to a gunfight with a bow & arrow and appreciate the technology of a rifle in my face. I'm still dead. The RIFLE WINS.

Do me a favor. Just say you're ok being a submissive lost. Your son will never play and you and your wife will wear the gear and be happy. lost's beget losers and by that post you're a hang-on lost. Move on with some dignity and realize that the 2025 kids are better!

Lacrosse is fun. The parent in the original post seems to be having fun. The second poster is not having fun.


Wow, just amazing. The "just have fun" crowd are like the useful stunads. They are either benefiting from the existing system, woefully ignorant, unethical, or maybe all. Many players in the club lacrosse scene are there to be in a highly competitive environment to improve their skillset with likeminded players. That is the "fun" for them. What is not fun is not having a level playing field. If you are just out to "have fun" and not worry about the lopsided landscape, go play on your town team. I highly doubt this "have fun" nonsense you spew is really how you feel, it is just a way to somehow permit your conscience to ignore the cheating, probably because you are one of the few benefitting from the corrupt environment. You think this "have fun" position puts you on a higher moral ground, like you do not care. I think it makes you into a useful dunce, with ignorance and no backbone to stand up to something that is clearly wrong.

The game in question was a 1 goal game that went back and forth the entire time. That sounds like a level-playing field to me. If my son has to play against holdbacks for the other organization to put forth a competitive team, I’ll take that any day of the week vs. beating a team by 10 + goals. But I am one who believes that winning is not the most important thing. Getting better is. And for the record, my son plays for an incredibly competitive team AND has fun. Imagine that. Now go kick rocks.



And you forgot to mention your son is 15 playing against 12 year olds.

Puberty is the great equalizer. If you look at a 2026 team and there aren’t at least 3 or 4 sub 100 pound boys, the team probably doesn’t have many on age kids on the roster. The size difference of a pre pubescent 13 year old and fully grown 15 year old is immense and a total safety issue. When kids enter HS however they will typically play for the frosh team and those who play up on varsity are probably the larger ones. My point is that the holdback issue is one of safety at the middle school leve

they read into these things like the club lacrosse rankings. Total Joke. Its laughable. They have 350 teams listed in the list. 150 teams are made up of the same combinations of kids playing on two or three teams. It is literally the stupidest thing anyone has ever made up to feed into some deficient parent ego, who wants to say that his kid is on the 10th ranked team. But what's funny is he is on the 10th the 48th and the 72nd ranked teams because he plays on three teams. Another joke.

The Tigers don't seem the type of team to grab older kids. They're pretty dedicated to the team that they've had in place for years. That being said, my money would be with Express. I've seen them play over the last 2 years and they're real good. Sweetlax also very good. My money would go on them or Express.

Tigers without one player is a much weaker team.
Express without one player is a much weaker team.
Sweetlax doesn’t depend on just one player like these teams. That is why they are the best 2026 team in the nation right now.

Original poster definitely a troll looking to stir things up. Igloo knows they were in the weaker bracket. They weren’t happy about it either. No delusions about being anywhere near as competitive as those other teams. Express, Tigers, Sweetlax aren’t in their sights. They’re closer to the BBL, Leading Edge and Primetime teams.

Express will likely drop in the rankings as they do as their kids grades go by. Express plays by the rules and their kids are much better off because of it. Solid teams on age, etc. As the other cheat to try to win t shirts they develop their players.

Agree to disagree here. Express has a current 2026 on their 2027 team. This player in going to re-class this year and become a 2027, however they play him on the grade where he is going not where he is. Additionally, this player played 2027 all last season as well.

Agree that Express drop off is happening quickly and right on time. Happens every time to there teams. Peak in 7 grade and fall to the bottom into high school graduation. No development and the kids who get developed by 91, Legacy and Igloo go to the front of the pack.

Untrue, igloo beat a mooselax team by 3 goals and showed minimal potential vs real competition. 91 orange storm had a rough weekend, giving up a 4 goal lead to an average express north team. I was informed however, they were without a head coach, Sal Lacsio, who plays an integral role in the boys performance. It is expected of the boys to do better as they have gotten some very good players as of recent and more are coming in. A team to look at for coming tournaments. Igloo is a good nor great program with talent hidden in certain positions but it would be incorrect and out of pocket to put them close to tiger, sweetlax etc. US club lax has laid out 91 and Annapolis hawks as the team to look for.

Great coaching?? Oook! Nice guys but TERRIBLE coaches. They spent too much time trying to keep Massapequa and Wantagh kids on that team. Now they don’t know, and since about 2017, they don’t know what to do with their limited talent that was in those 2 towns. They’ve been suffering ever since.

This Igloo team has a new coach and a bunch of new kids and they are hungry to win!

This can’t be a real post.

Until Igloo beats LIE, Sweetlax or the Tigers, they certainly can't claim they're better than any of those teams. Be happy that you won the weaker bracket at the NAL, but please don't confuse that with beating the elite teams that were in attendance. For now, the top 3 teams are LIE, Sweetlax and the Tigers since that's who is competing in the finals of all the recent major championships. Perhaps the Crabs and Towermen with their litany of holdbacks will make some noise, but that will need to be seen consistently heading into the summer. Either way, this will be settled on the field.

Agree that Express drop off is happening quickly and right on time. Happens every time to there teams. Peak in 7 grade and fall to the bottom into high school graduation. No development and the kids who get developed by 91, Legacy and Igloo go to the front of the pack.

Very true.

Igloo is always getting freezes out by the people from NLF. They have shown they are a legitimate team in the more inclusive NAL. They are a really good team. So are the others holdbacks are not, stop being a hater and just enjoy all lacrosse. Do you realize how many kids on these teams made their way up from the other teams B teams etc. Or the improvement of igloo from a very good team to an elite team. I think that is what should be applauded. Nobody will remember what team won the NAL or tournament in 3 years. Enjoy the ride.

Thanks for the comic relief.
This can't be coming from an Igloo parent. Everyone knows they played weaker teams... and they haven't beaten Express in years (and probably won't). Can't say theyre better if they cant beat them. Watched them play this weekend. Upgraded a bit. Igloo added a coach, who seems more even tempered, but the other hot headed coaches are still there showing the same negative emotion, yelling and screaming, and finger pointing. They are not on the same level as Express or any of those other top teams.

What "rules" are you referring to? As far as I know there are no actual rules on birth year vs grad year.

Where can I find a copy of the rules? Given Express pretty much runs club lacrosse they must have the rules on their website, right? Maybe they are on the NLF website?

It is expected of the boys to do better as they have gotten some very good players as of recent and more are coming in. A team to look at for coming tournaments. Igloo is a good nor great program with talent hidden in certain positions but it would be incorrect and out of pocket to put them close to tiger, sweetlax etc. US club lax has laid out 91 and Annapolis hawks as the team to look for.

Don’t you have to be present to play an integral role?

Nope. Players need to practice together to develop chemistry. 91 Florida fly-ins score goals, but aren’t helping their team develop. Oh, and ball movement helps. Pass the ball, please. On second thought, your teammates can’t catch. Carry on.

Unfortunately our Express going to slip to 4 in rankings. 91 is on the upswing. It's clear 91 training is making big improvements. And now we have three or four teams that can beat us with Crabs entering the mix. Once the first kid jumps to 91 from Express it is all over.

It would save hotels and a Jersey Turnpike drive! Honestly, the NAL was a very good tourney, with most teams/games being very competitive.

This is the truth. We know kids on the team “ Dalets” they recruited kids from everywhere and were still not that great. I believe team 26 actually tied them.

I dont know I think 91 and Igloo would be a good game. I am sure they will play at some point. I think both 91 and igloo got better. Shore wants to believe they are better then they are but they just take everyones B players so really no improvement there. Moose got better because outlaws were good and so they are better but not to Express Igloo or 91 level. Team 26 is basically Igloo/former outlaws, and randoms not top but they are basically the same as Moose and others in that level because they are the same people with different uniform.

what other towns were on the daler team?

4 - Team 91 Orange Storm
5 - Legacy
6 - Mooselax
7 - Team 26
8 - Express 2
9 - True Blue
10 - East Coast Elite

18 - Express 3
18 - Shore 2 Shore Barracudas
19 - Icon
20 - Recon
21 - FLG
22 - Lockjaw

That's funny. 91 will beat (B Bracket) Igloo by at least 5 goals. Shore stopped entering real tourneys after getting embarrassed in the NLF last summer. Moose is better than them. Team 26 lost to a town team this past week.

91 is about to be the top seed, FACT.

Flying in more holdbacks from Florida?

Just looked at the 2026 US Club Lax rankings and am trying to understand why LIE Chany has listed LI Express Wieczorek Black (2026) as the team that attended the NAL. Seems a little disingenuous that they are listing their B team vs. the actual team that played. Expect better from them as they try to preserve the ranking.

If that isn’t a mistake, it is complete BS and Coach C is weak for doing that.

Actually that's the C team. They don't control US club lacrosse. Many times their stats come from tourney machine

It was definitely the A team. It’s just incorrectly listed under the C team. I’m sure it will be corrected. If you look at that Black team they have a few scores from the B team also. From Columbus Day tournament. That’s scores from 2 different teams. The B & C team were there for that.

You have play other teams first. It’s odd though it seems, and it could be me, some clubs use the fall to be very selective over the match ups and don’t play vs certain teams. And other clubs will play any team. Maybe the brackets break that way or something

I don’t believe 6-10 or maybe 8-10 are top 10 teams. You’re forgetting the competition in other parts of the country.
There are other teams (from CA, TX, CO, NC) who could beat (or have already beaten) some of them and could challenge or beat 1-5 (or 1-7) too.

Well hopefully these teams (from CA, TX, CO, NC) show up to play in the Elite Tournaments this Summer and prove it. Playing subpar teams in B tournaments doesn't get you ranked in the top 10.

Get real. Sweetlax won NAL and beat Tigers in the final. Sweetlax is #1. Express not in the conversation for #1.

Sweetlax has beaten everybody they've played in the last 2 years and has only lost to 2 clubs teams during that time. One loss to the Towermen and wait for it... 7 or 8 losses in a row to LIE. For now, the top 3 teams in the country are LIE, Sweetlax and the Tigers. There are a few teams that may win a game or 2 along the way, but these 3 teams remain the best and most consistent. For all the ranting on BOTC, you'd think most of you would know the 2026 teams that routinely play in all the major championships. Either way, young boys with a lot of lacrosse in front of them. Enjoy the ride!

Not an express dad lol, but whatever helps you make it through the day, by all means vent. To that end, my son's team has played these top 3 teams and I've gotten to see them up close on several occasions. From my perspective:

1. LIE is still the most complete team and is coached really well. Coach C get's the most out of his kids. Not the most athletic or physically dominant team, but they execute really well and have a dominant face off guy. This may change this year with all the holdbacks, but they'll remain in the hunt all year. They also added a few 2025s that will be a big help in the summer. Plus, the simply practice and play... often!

2. Sweetlax may be the most athletic team from top to bottom and added an awesome goalie. My biggest observation this fall is that they have limited their ball movement which was once better than any team I've seen at this age. Looks like they added some players but their ball movement has suffered. Maybe why their AGD has changed so much this fall? Still, they will be in the top 3 until proven otherwise.

3. Tigers have looked really strong this fall and had Sweetlax on the ropes on 2 different occasions and beat LIE. They have some talented offensive players and the face-off guy has been solid. Defense looks much improved as well.

Crabs and their holdback team will likely compete due to playing with very few actual 2026s, but until they show up and play the top 3 teams, they shouldn't have any claim to the top 3 spots. As I said, this will be settled on the field and if you have yet to see the top 3 teams play, you might want to check them out to see why they're so good and still playing in virtually every championship bracket.

Thanks Express dad. Issue is your team lost to the Tigers. In the Championship game of NAL, Sweetlax beat the Tigers by one. So Sweetlax is #1. Also Express lost to the Crabs a few weeks ago. So Express is #4. Any questions?

:

1. LIE is still the most complete team and is coached really well. Coach C get's the most out of his kids. Not the most athletic or physically dominant team, but they execute really well and have a dominant face off guy. This may change this year with all the holdbacks, but they'll remain in the hunt all year. They also added a few 2025s that will be a big help in the summer. Plus, the simply practice and play... often!

2. Sweetlax may be the most athletic team from top to bottom and added an awesome goalie. My biggest observation this fall is that they have limited their ball movement which was once better than any team I've seen at this age. Looks like they added some players but their ball movement has suffered. Maybe why their AGD has changed so much this fall? Still, they will be in the top 3 until proven otherwise.

3. Tigers have looked really strong this fall and had Sweetlax on the ropes on 2 different occasions and beat LIE. They have some talented offensive players and the face-off guy has been solid. Defense looks much improved as well.

Crabs and their holdback team will likely compete due to playing with very few actual 2026s, but until they show up and play the top 3 teams, they shouldn't have any claim to the top 3 spots. As I said, this will be settled on the field and if you have yet to see the top 3 teams play, you might want to check them out to see why they're so good and still playing in virtually every championship bracket.[/quote]

We are all getting tired of your detailed breakdowns of 8th grade lacrosse teams. Get a life.[/quote]

I didn’t post that comment, but I don’t see what’s wrong with it.
This forum is full of all types of entertaining, ridiculous, and informative comments.
If you don’t like the details, why are you reading and commenting on here and not tending to your amazing life? You only want to see people put each other down or make rude comments? That’s an honest question. What do you hope to find here if not a civilized comment or discussion about something in which we all clearly have an interest? We can’t all just say “sorry your kid got cut” or this forum would be a dead end.

NJ not in discussion nationally or regionally until they have a sophomore year class top 5 team national team after a summer sophomore season. Will 25 BBL or LE do it their sophomore year? Will 26 Towermen or LE do it? I doubt it. Enjoy the 8th grade rankings.

Look, your team isn’t breaking any rules but please, own up to the fact that the crabs are only competing at this level due to a massive influx of holdbacks. Just say it… it may actually feel liberating to get it off your shoulders.

Crabs have so many they actually needed to start a separate team just for 2026 on age kids. It may be pushing past the grey area. We all have some NY,NJ,MD,PA,CO, ***have you seen the Kings defenders...but! Shame and pride is not something the Crabs organization has any sense of. So move on smile and laugh when you are playing against a kid who struggles with basic math and is actually repeating a grade for the sake of youth club lacrosse director.

Saw them play last weekend in between my sons games. They are a solid B team. Anyone saying they’re an A team is just wrong or a 91 parent. They have 2 fast middies and that really it. Many can barely catch and throw.

This is the issue with 2026 91 Storm parents and coaches. They don’t even know what they don’t know. Best of luck to you. When was the last time you played Express? Over a year ago? I wonder why that hasn’t happened…..we all know Express will play anyone, anywhere, anytime.

You're a parent with a kid on the team. Of course you would think they'll be top 10. They're not even top 30.

Have to chime in regarding the Kings defenders. They are both on age. Big and aggressive but are still only recently 14. Last summer at NLF they hadn’t turned 14 yet and were talking to the Sweetlax attack who were 15 already. We do t do holdbacks here in Colorado.

Posted By: Anonymous Re: Boys 2026-8th Grade Fall 2021/Summer 2022 - 11/26/21 11:50 PM
Hawks attack too. Should be 2025s. I get waiting to start school with a Summer birthday so that they aren’t the youngest (or even reclassing with a kid who started school early). But repeating a grade solely for lacrosse is rediculous. Should be a March 1, 2007 age cutoff to eliminate this nonsense.

Not sure what you mean. Most of the 2026’s should still be 13. I’d say January 2008 is the average birthday for a 2026. At least an on age one.

Not an ounce of truth to the 2026 Sweetlax attack being 15 and holdbacks are rare in Upstate NY as well due to very good public schools. The Kings play a weaker schedule and need to beat the best NE teams to be deemed elite.

Accept the fact that 91 is NOT good and will never play Express. Accept it! You won't. Typical 91 2026 dad. No even an Express parent but it's completely obvious.

My mistake. It was the Hawks attack who were 15. And several other members of their team. I appreciate that upstate and LI play on age. And yes, it’s too bad there aren’t more competitive teams out West. The Kings and Tommyknockers can only play each other so many times. Just know that the Kings have no holdbacks and are a local team from Denver. When the 2027 Kings won NLF (and smoked the 91 Machine 10-3) the butt-hurt dads on that thread accused them of holdbacks and being a regional team. The reality is that LI has a population of 7 million - more than the entire state of Colorado. Tired of the excuses. Give credit where credit is due.

Not the original poster, but it seems that you are the obnoxious one coming on this thread and claiming to be a top team with absolutely nothing to back it up. Until you beat Sweetlax, Tigers, Express or Hawks, please pipe down.

91 is a strong team and just getting stronger, no one said they would beat Express tomorrow, but they are getting better and better. So 2027 machine kicks express butt all over the field, so what are you saying. 2026 91 is getting stronger and stronger and at some point they will likely overtake express, they are better coached and developed. All express does is take everyone else's developed players.

So 2027 machine kicks express butt all over the field, so what are you saying. 2026 91 is getting stronger and stronger and at some point they will likely overtake express, they are better coached and developed. All express does is take everyone else's developed players.

You sound like a child. 91 is not a good team. They don't even play in A tournaments. Please tell me the last time they beat any team that finished in the top 20 last year? I'll wait. If you want to talk about a 2027 team go to the 2027 forum. I really wouldn't use that to defend the 2026 team. Weak and sad.

Tommykockers and Kings both stink. Not sorry.

Both have holdbacks and both are out of top 50

My son plays on a 2026 A team. I will admit not a top 10 team but very close to it. They have never played against this 91 team that is frequently mentioned here and I would have to agree with some people here that if you want to try and say you're a top team why not play against them? Let's go! Step up and play better teams!

I think you’re wrong again. Which team had 15 year old attack last summer? It’s not the Hawks and my guess is that it’s no team. You should be aware that your mind and/or memory is unreliable. The Kings are a great team and, if you’re saying they have no holdbacks, then you should know size doesn’t always correspond with age in middle school.

WRONG.

You think that every Hawks attack was 15 this summer??

Many dads roam the sidelines at these games with their tape measure and if a kid is over 5'8 at this age, there is no convincing them that he isn't a holdback.

Saw them play last weekend in between my sons games. They are a solid B team. Anyone saying they’re an A team is just wrong or a 91 parent. They have 2 fast middies and that really it. Many can barely catch and throw.


just not true, they will be top 10 by the end of the year. Stop being a hater.

Its so notIntelligent. So Express steals everyones developed talent that is what you are saying. Bravo. I guess you will say at different ages 91 does it to Express. Overall 91 defeats express in almost every age group, they are continuing to build 2026, and will beat other teams maybe not express in the near future. express dad you are lame, your kid is an embarrassment, stop your bragging, you sound like an stunad.

I think most people agree with this statement. 91 is very dominant at almost every age group. But this age group they are not. The reason is pretty simple. They kept kids that didn’t deserve a spot. As a result their top talent left and top kids stopped coming to tryouts because they knew they wouldn’t get a fair look. The team is good but not great. In the end it doesn’t matter

It would seem as you are the one that is the embarrassment. Ranting a raving on a chat forum. Worry about your own kid and his team.

I dont know if it is feasible to have the best team of every age group. 91 has the most best teams in every age group. the fact that they are a top team in 2026 but may not be the top team is not a knock on them, they are developing and getting better, just like all of their dominant teams. They have an excellent program one that express aspires to be, 91 is just better coaching and development. Express is marketing pure marketing.

You are incessantly bragging about a mediocre 91 team. Not sure anyone could sound more idiotic than you.

91 got a new coach this year and over a 1/3 of their team is new. It is a totally different looking team than in the past. The statement above is 100% correct with tryouts in the past. Hopefully the situation is corrected.

Curious if they're so good why they don't attempt to play in an A tournament? Maybe in the spring/summer. We shall see but I doubt it. I saw them play this year and they still looked very mediocre.

they are not mediocre, they are better then that, and getting stronger and stronger, they will be top 10 team by end of the year.

Actually it was the tournament at SUNY Farmingdale recently. There were varsity HS teams playing (my son). My interest was sparked when I saw the new coach on the sideline (Sal L) and was curious how they looked with him in command since he has coached nothing but top teams for 91. Like I said though, from what I saw I could not see them competing with the top teams (A teams) by the spring/summer. I wouldn't doubt that next year they will look pretty good with his coaching though. Honest assessment and hope that answers the troll question. Good luck.

I am sure they will be in many A tournaments. They were in one and lost 2 games. but they are improving everyday. express is getting nervous because like many other years they fade away to irrelevance.

I can only speak for the Hawks attack (and goalie) who admitted they were 15 to our players. Sounds like this is typical in DMV, as the Crabs are doing the same thing, just with the majority of the team.

Were you watching the game against GC where they had their poles playing attack/middie and their attack playing D? They let up like 3 goals all day.

It sounds like the players have the same "holdback" paranoia as their parents. I have 2 boys both age appropriate. It is annoying to watch the bigger older kids on the field but it really does not matter. The kids are on the field competing and hopefully having fun.

Yeah. If anyone believes that the Hawks attack and goalie "admitted they were 15 to our players" then I have a bridge I'd love to sell you. All, but one played in WSYL. Sorry to disappoint you, but they're just good. It's okay. There are a lot of great players in this age group.

They did this because it was all B teams they were playing against. I don't know which team it was. Like I said, I stopped for a few minutes because I recognized the new coach and wanted to see if the team improved under his command. My opinion is that the team hasn't improved too much yet. Wouldn't be surprised to see them improve but I believe that this spring/summer is too early for that. He's a great coach and I wish you luck.

Yeah. If anyone believes that the Hawks attack and goalie "admitted they were 15 to our players" then I have a bridge I'd love to sell you. All, but one played in WSYL. Sorry to disappoint you, but they're just good. It's okay. There are a lot of great players in this age group.

1. LIE is still the most complete team and is coached really well. Coach C get's the most out of his kids. Not the most athletic or physically dominant team, but they execute really well and have a dominant face off guy. This may change this year with all the holdbacks, but they'll remain in the hunt all year. They also added a few 2025s that will be a big help in the summer. Plus, the simply practice and play... often!

2. Sweetlax may be the most athletic team from top to bottom and added an awesome goalie. My biggest observation this fall is that they have limited their ball movement which was once better than any team I've seen at this age. Looks like they added some players but their ball movement has suffered. Maybe why their AGD has changed so much this fall? Still, they will be in the top 3 until proven otherwise.

3. Tigers have looked really strong this fall and had Sweetlax on the ropes on 2 different occasions and beat LIE. They have some talented offensive players and the face-off guy has been solid. Defense looks much improved as well.

Crabs and their holdback team will likely compete due to playing with very few actual 2026s, but until they show up and play the top 3 teams, they shouldn't have any claim to the top 3 spots. As I said, this will be settled on the field and if you have yet to see the top 3 teams play, you might want to check them out to see why they're so good and still playing in virtually every championship bracket.[/quote]

We are all getting tired of your detailed breakdowns of 8th grade lacrosse teams. Get a life.[/quote]

Frankly, this forum could use some more of this. No team is perfect in 8th grade, but the top 3 or 4 clubs have clearly separated from the pack for now. Personally, I think Sweetlax is most vulnerable. The statement that their ball movement has suffered is fact and they looked beatable this fall.

It’s an online lax discussion board, this is exactly what should be talked about imho. It’s fun and sparks debate. And you can queue the 91 response predicting they are back. I think people take it too serious at times

Massachusetts will be well represented in the rankings as both high end programs will be top 10 or dare I say, top 5. Laxachusetts and 3d NE Red are both the real deal and you folks will have to deal with them all next summer.

I heard Laxachusetts has 8 holdbacks from their 2025 now on their 2026. Can you confirm or deny this, Massachusetts poster?

That is an affirmative on Laxachusetts. But it’s allowed as it’s age based. So not sure what the problem is. They all have to deal with high school next year. As for 3d NE, zero holdbacks from last summer to next summer. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

This is hilarious, but it is also equally hilarious the people who's talented 8 year old drops off a cliff and then the guy really is out of sorts.

3. Tigers have looked really strong this fall and had Sweetlax on the ropes on 2 different occasions and beat LIE. They have some talented offensive players and the face-off guy has been solid. Defense looks much improved as well.

Crabs and their holdback team will likely compete due to playing with very few actual 2026s, but until they show up and play the top 3 teams, they shouldn't have any claim to the top 3 spots. As I said, this will be settled on the field and if you have yet to see the top 3 teams play, you might want to check them out to see why they're so good and still playing in virtually every championship bracket.

We are all getting tired of your detailed breakdowns of 8th grade lacrosse teams. Get a life.

Frankly, this forum could use some more of this. No team is perfect in 8th grade, but the top 3 or 4 clubs have clearly separated from the pack for now. Personally, I think Sweetlax is most vulnerable. The statement that their ball movement has suffered is fact and they looked beatable this fall.

Everyone respects Sweetlax, Tigers, Express so much.....No holdbacks

Honest question, how do they do it?[/quote]

Just deny that there are holdbacks, while there are.[/quote]


Hmmm… probably the team with the most holdbacks will dominate at this age. Growth and strength is measurable at this age. Not as much in HS. Boys catch up then. Rules need to be changed at youth ages!!!

Crown the Crabs now if that's the case. Their new FOGO redefines holdback.

you people should just be happy that your kids are playing and learning the game. Go to where you can find good coaching and a good pool of kids to work with. All the other stuff is BS.

Says the guy with a kid that is a three year holdback and plays with a bunch of other holdbacks and crushes a bunch of 10 year old boys. Sure go to good coaching and good group of kids, but is it too much to ask for some on age competition? Those that say it does not matter are most likely the ones that are cheating.

Its like the shoplifting going on in CA and NY. Some point it out as wrong. Others say move along, nothing to see here. It does not impact you (until it does). Kind of like when your 10 year old gets run over by a 2 year holdback and ends up with a concussion.

The real story is that they are not very good until five of their 2025s come down to help them at NLF

Express North had at least 2 2025s playing down at the NLF. Not holdbacks, legit 2025s. So they cheated.
