100%
Very hard to make the top team at YJ. Looking at the past decade the top 15 girls on the A team (blue)go on to play at top 10 programs. The Gold or B team sends most kids to lower D1 schools like Holy Cross, Hofstra and Binghamton. The C team sends girls to low D1, D2 and D3 schools. If your daughter wants to play lacrosse in college there is a school for her. Playing on YJ it gets them exposed along with other programs, but the most beneficial part is the friends them make and the fun times and memories they create. Getting to Maryland or UNC isn’t everyone’s goal but that don’t mean you can’t have fun. And play club ball. YJ offers a ream for all levels of skill. Yea it’s a business but a good one.

Lower D1 school? Hofstra was 30. Holy Cross 92. Binghamton 107. Not the same tier.

It is very hard to make the top YJ because its not always based on skill level. Sometimes the girl has the right zip code, they pay for play with their coach or have other connections. Just because players are on the Blue team doesn't mean they are Blue players.

Agree 100% odds over the last 10+ years is that many of the best LI girls play for the YJ's. Many years and parent could dump out the ball bag and win coaching the blue team. But to the person above 100% accurate that some blue players don't belong but since they live in the right neighborhood or had siblings that have already paid CR 10's of thousands of dollars they make the tea, Its not tough to take some extra kids when you are rostering almost 30 girls. My problem has always been if you take a girl on a team, she must be good enough for that team, so PLAY THEM!

So do you think that college coaches realize the BS politics? What are the chances then of a B player playing for a top program if they are buried on the B team because they don’t have the correct zip code or mom and dad paying extra money to have their kid on the A team.

Totally FALSE!!!!!!!!!!

If your player is good enough and you put the time into looking at schools and going to their camp or clinic the coaches will see you.

Lots of second team players go to great schools AND PLAY.

Totally agree. Just look at the big fish in small ponds. Best girls that play on the Wave and other smaller programs still get to top schools not always but WHEN its deserved

College kids don’t coach at yellow jackets. And I’ve never seen anyone hung over. My kid plays for the c team and she is going to a very good d2 school . Like most programs you will get out what you put in. She got to play before many d1 programs and had 5 calls/ emails on September 1st. It didn’t go that way but it all work out and she’s very happy with her school . More importantly she’s proud of her self and so am I.

Do some research . look at the rosters and at the Commitments . You will see players down to the c team going to good d2 schools. My daughters year has 4 teams and you’ll see a lot of girls going d3 on the 4th team and the still have a year to go.

The C team is alive and well with politics. The 1 going D1 is a political connection and if you are in the right crowd on that team they helped you out. I have no problem with playing D2 or D3 but I am not sure kids play for 5 years hoping for D2. Finally, 5 calls from D1 teams on Sept 1, doubt that, most of B girls got no calls. And many B girls got no help with recruiting.

It doesn’t matter about money it matters about exposure if your daughter starts to look at schools and gets an idea for what she wants big, small, private public and major then u start doing the camps and sending the emails. If a coach knows u want them and the school they’re more inclined to take notice to your daughter.

Which team is your girl on? What are you basing your statement on? Facts? Or your emotions? Pretty sure it’s the latter!
