Island box coach did and amazing job rotating kids and they had the All star box/lax player who is on the dukes who was simply amazing to watch
what was so amazing about that player relative to the other boys?
Yeah, what was so amazing? Island Box is self promoting all over this thread. Come on, stop with the shameless posts. Teach real box instead of subbing lines field lacrosse in a box rink.
- what does that mean, subbing lines field lacrosse in a box rink? teach real box? heres the funny thing about "BOX" first off, if you want "real" box , go to Canada or go play in a tournament upstate on a reservation where your kid gets beaten up for 50 minutes , secondly, no one is playing box lacrosse because they want to play box, they are trying to develop quicker sticks, quicker decisions etc.. for their field games . so honestly who gives a crap about any of that crap- go out, have fun, get better.
typical Long Island lax dad who thinks he knows everything lacrosse and plays only for the field game. Learn the rules and teach it correctly
- how many kids tell you they want to play in the nll? truth is , all these kids hear is they should play box to get better in field which right or wrong is the truth. but I agree, the game should be taught properly.
I'm confused. Looking at Tourny Machine Island box went 1-2 for the day. They lost their first game to NOTB Blue, which I assume is a house team and then to Legacy (Taz). Why is there so much talk about a team that didn't even make it to the championship?
April 6th will be here before you know it! Who will be ready?
No one will be ready for WP. The core of kids/coaches have been there since 1st grade. They have been making roster improvements every year and were already the hands-down best team before the Taz players came over this season.
No other team has a reasonable chance.
The NEW PLAYERS are the best on your team, you were on a down turn. You know that., You needed to improve , to have a chance. You know it. The new kids will take all the playing time away from the ones that have been there since the 1 st grade. You keep believing that. You should WIn.. with the kids you have. But you wont.
Same amigo, same spin. If anyone cares, folks will be very surprised how little this team has changed this year. All the same faces, doing what they’ve always done... being some of the top players in the ‘24 game. Insert a few strategic new pieces, and you have the makings of something very special. So far so good. Liking what I’ve seen thus far, playing exclusively ‘23 teams, with a few ‘22s thrown in. Built for the WSYL but they’ll be ready for anyone...
Agreed. The packs signature strength continues. Ball movement. Sharing the ball. A very unselfish group. Vintage Wolfpack, only better.
Yes, definatley better, 5 new holdback starters will do that to a team. Oh, and don't forget the 8th grader...
