I have heard that the Girl's Lacrosse world has a whole other level of poor behavior that isn't quite the same as on the Boy's side. This makes sense from what I've experienced. Not having daughters, I find the Women's game difficult to follow but fantastic to watch.
My one run-in with the Girls world was during a business coffee of all things. I had spent the prior evening listening to a discussion between girls' lax parents after try-out season had ended. The person I was having coffee had a daughter who played for a well-known club, and I figured it would be a good ice breaker. "So, what is the deal with the girl's tryouts this year? I heard that there was a big mystery since none of the girls wore numbers on their try-out pinnies...." The rumor was of course that the team was wired for the existing players and that the coach might have one or two in mind, but for the rest of the attendees, it was just an exercise in futility.
Instead of the "Yeah, that is so weird..." response that I expected, the temperature dropped 20 degrees and the person announced that they were a Parent Organizer/Manager and that there "was no mystery, just some confusion with pinnies, and who did you hear this from?" Never going to reveal my sources, and clearly it was a big deal. Needless to say, the coffee ended early, and I learned a valuable lesson or two. Having seen baloney tryouts on the boys' side, it was completely believable that a team on the girls' side could do the same. If anything, it adds to the exclusivity of the experience. If your child isn't spectacular enough for us to want to find out her real name, well, then you are wasting your time here today.
Beyond that, and the occasional comments on shooting space, helmets making girls more contact-prone, and the debate on whether girls goalies should kneel into low shots, I've not paid as much attention as I should. Let me know if you have any good parent, coach or player stories that you would like to share here.
