The stickwork and schemes are well advanced beyond anything you'll EVER see in TX, GA, LI or Upstate.
Philly and occasionally DC comes close, occasionally, but 2-3 decent teams doesn't compare to what's regularly shown in Baltimore and Annapolis.

Say what ?? Now that is delusional . Look at most D1 rosters. The majority of Md players are bench warmers.

Get a grip…. holdbacks are meaningless and don’t effect the game unless they are an exceptional player like anyone else on their team.

holdback scenario actually works best in the younger years. Kid starts to dominate in youth and gets to be on the best teams and get more playing time and attention. Gets them motivated to be the best, loves the attention and they have extra year of skills and training young! Then size comes into play a little later. I don’t agree with it at all, but see the advantage and have watched kids/families who do it from day 1 of K and Pre-first! Planner! The Rules need to change in youth lacrosse.

What ever happened to the “give it to the 9th grader” kid from Madlax? Is he still head and shoulders above other 2024 players?

You could also be the sad daddy coach who needs to hold his kids hand for 8 years to make sure he plays and wins awards when there is much better talent and kids who deserve it more. Sadder is having to sell your kid to a high school packaged with the other kids you coach who are better. This sport is so lame. No wonder the demographics are what they are.

Why are people still whining about holdback for Sophomores, News Flash they should already be playing varsity against 18 -20 year old's, so if they are not then you might want to think about your priorities. Also focus on Sept 1, but if you are worried about holdbacks I guess you definitely are not thinking about Sept 1.

Critical Thinking passed you by years ago.

Simple explanation why being older helps in youth to make a mark, HS many are similar and that extra attention from coaches, playing time, etc in youth comes into play later. I know. right over your head again.

Trying to get a sense of summer showcases and prospect days. Anyone have thoughts /experience with TPS (The Player Series) June in Tinton Falls or the Elite 100 in July in Boston?

News flash it has nothing to do with the boys that are still playing and everything to do with the boys lacrosse lost because they played ON GRADE WITH THERE AGE GROUP. Congrats to you and your Son on his commitment to Anne Arundel Community College.

My older son attended TPS. I wasn't impressed. The Professional players they advertised were there for morning session first day then took off. Juniors Open, Mainstage and Showtime are the big time showcases in my opinion.
