TG Black has 4-5 of the best 2023's and one of the best 2024's in the country. As a coach, among coaches they are already on the radar of the top lax college programs. Coaches talk to each other. The list a coach makes on the sideline watching the games is the one that matters the most.

BOTC must have needed some increased traffic because polls of any kids that didn't play the season is worthless and is just a parent chest pounder. How many people can Sally call to get to vote for her. You guys must be bored.

Can’t argue with that. TG has been best team for this age. YJ is now.
Both teams are excellent and Legacy is a close 3rd.
The polls are for fun and the best players in this class will make the UA team.
Be about 90% YJ and TG and a few kids from legacy


Not involved in this age group at all, but it sounds like YJ has taken over the spot as top team, but in the end it does not matter, the YJ players will get the benefit of the doubt in recruiting, way before TG. Historically YJ blows away TG in recruiting and this age group will likely prove to be no different. Even if the talent does not warrant this, it will happen. I know someone is going to claim college coaches recruit players, not teams! Believe me, there is no greater leapIng point to get on a coaches radar As a player, than being on the blue roster. For the top handful of players on each team, it probably makes no difference, but the bottom 3/4 of players from each team, coming from YJ is a huge advantage.


Clearly true every year! Even some of the B players will get the advantage over other clubs A teams. My daughter is not a YJ but I saw it happen in her age group.

Just saw that UA tryout dates are starting to be announced, and the tournament date has been announced for early August, which is great news!! Just one thing I thought was odd. How is Thorn aloud to be a coach, and be involved in picking the team when her daughter will be most likely trying ou? Isn't that an obvious conflict of interest?

You want things to be fair with zero nepotism?!?!?! What world are you living in?
Look at that list of coaches. Thorn isn't the only one with a conflict of interest

I’m just so glad my kid is a defender. Seems to be much less competition and backstabbing.
Although it does stink when your (NY based)team can’t score against Florida or Colorado teams and loses and there’s nothing you can really do to help with that problem. Defenders don’t get enough props.

I didn’t realize Florida or Colorado had competitive teams in this age group

the team isnt chosen by the coaches. UA/CSE has reps there that overlook the process. Usually anywhere from 8-12 evaluators that grades the girls after each scrimmage/game. Girls are broken into teams and let just let them play All the evaluators go into a room to go over the grades and come back and announce the top 40 or so for the call back game. I am not a fool, there is always some politics involved and YJ coach will have power to choose the bottom few spots.
Levy who is legacy was the head coach last summer for Command and the team was basically all YJ and TG. If the girl dominates and shows she is a top 10 player at the tryout, she will make the team.
