NEMS 2024 is a perfect example of kids and parents thinking that a strong 5th, 6th grade, and 7th grade team will persist into the years that matter. A former #1 team falling outside the top 10 when it matters while somehow inferior teams surpass them.

Even worse, the 24 NEMS coach will only look out for her daughter who is only the strongest player because she helped direct the supporting cast to get her the ball all the time. It will get worse as more clipboards appear on the fields.

Lots of similarities to the same conversations about 28 teams. Being blinded by t-shirts and wins are short sighted and miss the big picture. As parents, these are nuances your daughters don’t understand and it is your role to help them see the big picture. Thinking “but (fill in the club) has a shot to win the NGLL next year” is the wrong mentality.

Former # 1 team? You must be a Nems parent. They never won a tournament witht the top teams in it. Never remember them in playoffs at NGLL either. Their current middle school teams are average.

No! If they like you they will offer before tryouts and you don’t have to attend any. SW knows who they want to poach before tryouts.

This response is not even commenting on the purpose of the post. The post made another great point and example of what continues to be explained on this thread. The winning sometimes blinds people of reality.

I personally hope the Coppermine 2028 team stays together, there are some really talented girls on that team that could potentially take roster spots away from girls on my daughters team.

NEMS has one great team - the 24’s. The 25 & 26 team is average, the 27’s are crumbling, and the 28 and 29 team are terrible.

24s are good not great. The only good players are the 23 holdbacks and the coaches kid.

You obviously don’t know that team…

darn. Somebodies daddy is a little salty today. Would love to see your college resume as you call out someone so respected in the lax world.

Tucker is all-time winningest coach at Johns Hopkins with a 303-171 (.639) record in 28 seasons, including a 235-155 (.603) mark at the Division I level.

Honestly, is that an elite record? Especially when you are in the backyard of the some of the best players in the country

Would Coppermine 28 parents be thrilled w winning 6 out of 10 times?

A lot depends on if you have practiced with them over the summer. If they don't know who you are, I would attend both to have any type of chance.

They have camps and programs for kids starting at 2 years old, which will continue to be a feeder, especially with their Carroll County location drawing even more talent. The 2028 team has been a catalyst for change in the program. They are not an outlier.

Nice try. Give it two years when your daughters are headed to high school and want to play beyond. That’s when the movement will happen. The connections the other clubs have to the collegiate track are just a fact. You can’t develop that in just a year and one team. Look at recruitment for each club and the history there…

Hope this forum stays active so we can see how badly this comment ages.

College coaches aren’t going to turn away interested talent because of what name is on the kid’s club jersey. Plenty of M&D, Hero’s & Skywalkers go on to the sit the bench at high level programs. Who cares if your kid was on the team if they never see the field? Show me their stats on how many of their kids transfer or quit in college comparative to other clubs.

Is success simply getting a kid to top D1 or is success getting players to complete 4 years of in game playing time and graduate with a degree?! High # of Transfers = failure to help the player find the best situation for them.

It’s not about college coaches turning away players it’s all about connections and the ability to connect players to schools they’re interested in. Whether you believe it or not, it’s a large part of the recruitment process along with going to specific college camps players maybe interested in attending. The more all around successful programs already have these connections. That’s just the truth and coppermine is just not there yet.

Sounds like someone who hasn't been through the process at all. A good recruiting director will never get you an offer at the D-1 level at least. (they have more influence on D-3). What they can do is 1) help get more coaches to your games and get you preferred invites to prospect days and more importantly 2) get you real time feedback from coaches on your chances of actually getting recruited.

For a top MD team, since none of them are exactly underexposed, this is not that big of a deal. If this club were in Texas, Chicago or Denver (non lax hotbeds), a former coach recruiting director would be a much bigger deal.

Especially considering until they joined the big ten 6 or 7 years ago, many of those years were against subpar schedules.

They were ranked #1 at one point this year….

Never saw that and not one person outside of Nems would believe they are the #1 team. They are #4 in Baltimore area at best.
