However, I am unsure at which point I should move from my local club to YJ. what do you guys genuinely think? We have played with a local club from K- 5th grade. Should we make the move for 6th, 7th, or 8th grade? Definitely want them to get exposure to better competition and a more competitive environment before they get into HS. Appreciate any insight.


My daughter does not play for them but I would say middle school is a great time to move to a higher competition team with great exposure to college coaches. tryouts are usually in august-sept.
Good Luck I hope your daughters find a great team, with supportive, fun, nice girls and families and great competition.



Agreed, you should have selected a club by 5th-6th Grade and are hopefully either on the top team or working hard to get there. by 8th -9th grade the top teams will be set and will be near impossible to crack these lineups ( exemptions are made for extraordinary talent)


with the exception of the 2023's of course. This age group is 8th grade its still all over the place...hopefullymoving forward college coaches can see the forest through the trees... look past all the nonsense and see some great talent on all the teams....


2023 is a dumpster fire.

I have heard this rumor? Have not seen them play but are most of the girls from power suffolk schools? is it selfish play? Can someone shed some light? 8th grade is still young. i’m sure they will figure it out

While the above may be true, I believe the comments are in reference to the merger of Igloo 2023 and YJ 2023. both these teams were competitive with igloo getting the better of YJ most time in the past. There are now effectively 2 A teams in the YJ at this age as no tryouts were held to establish an A team ( i think this changes this fall as there will be a tryout)

The Igloo team is not the same team it was. Half of the girls left including some of their top girls. They will have a hard time competing this year butwith bargaining they got to keep a small roster anda coup of the better tournaments which Wright was sacrificed. It will change next year for sure and most of those girls will head to other clubs with the exception of a few who will go right to the top.
