Very sad, was a great group of kids. Letting the Manasquan coach leave didn't help, considering they are somewhat of a feeder program. Mad Dog struggles to keep their top players when they move into High School.


That is unfortunate, nice group of coaches as well

Did the players move to other clubs or just stop playing travel? They had 10 very good players.

Leading Edge, Tri-State & United. Leading Edge ended up with the top players

Seems like Leading Edge will have a pretty large roster with the additional bodies, might not be great for playing time. Regardless, there will probably be a lot of turnover next year when the competition for spots on teams like Leading Edge gets much more intense. Not really sure about the depth of the talent coming from Mad Dog as they did not play the same caliber tournaments as TriState and Leading Edge, especially Leading Edge with the NLF events, but I have heard that there were 2 or 3 really good players on the team.

The players leaving Mad Dog was not a reflection of the coaches or the program. The primary reason for them leaving was their teammates. You had players that would stay up all night before games, miss tryout, not run the wing on faceoffs and parents that used Mad Dog as their social outlet. Unfortunately, Mad Dog had no control over parents lack of parenting.

It's definitely hard for a kid that loves the game to be surrounded by others that are not willing to put in the effort. Too much time and money spent to be frustrated every weekend, hopefully, it will be a better experience for the boys.

Ridiculous statement. It's the best of 2024, that are actually 2024 age. That's B level to you, just because they don't allow cheaters?? Your thinking is totally warped by all of the cheater teams. This is how it is suppose to be!!! That's how corrupt this sport has become. The cheating culture is ingrained with so many people, they actually think this is OK and is the norm. That is really very sad. The cheater teams shouldn't even exist. They are CHEATERS.

It has nothing to do with age. The talent pool top to bottom is not very strong, and that takes into account the age issue you are whining about. There are only a handful of very good teams at the event. There's basically Long Island, then everybody else.

While that may be the perception from the outside, I found that it was a much different experience having attended. I do not know if you have been there as well, but there are some very talented teams at the event. While I agree that there is a pretty big swing in talent between the top third and bottom third, last year, there were some really exciting playoff games. Granted, 91 Bandits was the best team there, however, it wasn't as if other teams were out their league. Obviously, if you just accept the WSYL for what it is, it is a great experience. However, for those out there that hang their hats on a age-based tournament victory and claim that they are the #1 team, that is certainly misguided.

Not traditionally a large pool of teams, in past years it was usually Westfiled, RFH or Mavericks, but teams have really come together this year. Del Val has a pretty strong team, but I would still put Westfield at the top.
