As a rule, postseason teams are selected by coaches or writers. That’s the way it’s always been, and that’s fine.
But since this is a place where we take pride in pioneering new ways of doing things, I’ve decided to do something just a little bit different in selecting the members of our inaugural LaxLessons.com all-region team.
You’re going to make the call.
Here’s how it’s going to work.
Each week for the next four weeks, beginning this Sunday, we will have balloting by position. We will present the names of at least five nominees per position and allow you to write-in anyone not included. So all players from Westchester, Rockland, Putnam, Dutchess, Nassau, Suffolk and greater Fairfield including public and private schools are eligible.
The voting will start at midnight each Sunday and end that Saturday at midnight.
Then, we will move on to another position.
After all the positions are decided on July 4, we will publish our all-region team on Monday, July 6.
On Sunday, July 5, we will start week-long balloting for coach of the year, which will be announced on July 12, the same day we start week-long balloting for region player of the year.
Here’s the order of voting:
Attack: June 712
Midfield: June 14-20
Defense: June 21-27
Goaltender: June 28-July 4
During each balloting period, you will be allowed to make just one vote per position.
And finally, our all-region team will be broken down this way numbers wise:
So there you have it. Be sure to let us know what you think. And don’t forget to cast your vote in our latest poll:
Who do you think is the early favorite to be the LaxLessons.com regional player of the year?
