Was driving through nearby Devens this week. One of summer's many lax tournaments was going on, finishing @ 1 pm that day. Friend with Devens DPW told me 150
College coaches were there that day.

The marketing of HS students to be visible to be college lax players is off the hook.

With limited recruiting budgets, most are D3 coaches, no schollys.

^ I wouldn't have the current data for that, although one such tournament, I did find a Coaches listing.
I did run into Coach Cannella there for a tournament at least once.

There is a wide range of ages and geographics for these tournaments which run across the summer. N o I don't thing there would be many coaches there for the 8-10 year olds games. I do know that there are tournaments for MA schools, New England, and sometimes teams come in from down south and the Midwest.

Pre-Covid was an extremely busy lax time there, and it is starting to get busy again. Rogers Field, the old Parade grounds, is quite large and can handle at least a dozen games at the same time, maybe more. If needed, Willard Field handles some of the overflow, and the fields near the Parker School can host one.

I miss the dogs I used to go to play with. They are no longer allowed on the fields. The best tournament was when there were five Vizslas there at the same time. I called my wife and told her to hurry over to come play with them. (she did)... We thought we must have been at a Vizla breeder and a bunch of lax games broke out.

I coached and officiated at some MBYLL games around 2009 or so - huge fields. The timing was so tight we had to run a siren to start and end games, and not allow each game ref to keep time.
