2015 Summer Club Lacrosse Tryouts
posted 08/06/2014
 

Parents,

 Below is a list of some summer lacrosse programs available to your son for 2015.  Some programs start as early as 2nd grade and go through to high school.  We do not endorse one specific club since coaches and philosophies may change year to year.  If you want to hit the tournaments next summer, you need to plan NOW.  Tryouts are just around the corner and clubs like to know how many kids they have and need in order to plan expenses for the upcoming summer. Some tryouts start in early September so if you are interested go to their websites and check the dates now!  Some of the teams may be doing some fall 2014 tournaments as well.


Some things to know:
 
  1.  It is up to you to confirm the dates and times on the web sites as they may change.

                            
  2.  The programs are more expensive than our spring league.  You need to decide for yourselves if this is something that will benefit your son. 

 
  3.  Higher level players desiring to play in high school and beyond often play summer lacrosse to continue work on and improve their lacrosse skills.

 

 4.  Keep in mind that these teams are gaining in popularity and becoming more competitive given the growth of lacrosse.  You may need to try out for more than one team, if it is your first time due a team’s popularity or the carryover of players from the previous year.
 
5.  It is true that some clubs are more competitive than others, and some clubs have better coaches at particular age levels. Sometimes it is best to get an opinion from a parent of a player for a particular club. Usually a recommendation from a knowledgeable parent goes a long way.
 
6.  Below you will see a list of some of the more popular clubs close to us. We do not endorse one over the other because each player has a different need and each program has their own particular strengths and weaknesses and you are the one who is ultimately responsible, so . . . do your homework.

7.  If you are serious about making a team, plan to attend both try out dates if 2 are offered, even though the team may only require you to attend 1 try out. Trying out for 2-3 teams can be good experience for players to get the nervousness out of their system.
 
 
Check each web site for times, locations, try out fees, waivers etc...

Indoor Lacrosse Training Program @ Lax Evo
posted 08/06/2014
 

Indoor Lacrosse Cross Training Program

 

Lacrosse Evolution is excited to announce a new training program designed to incorporate indoor lacrosse into a new training program called Indoor Lacrosse Cross Training.  This program is specifically designed to teach American lacrosse field players the unique skill set that Canadian players develop from the indoor lacrosse game.  The Canadian influence has been very prevalent in the NCAA Division 1, 2 and 3 ranks recently as college programs have altered their offense to involve more aspects of the indoor lacrosse style of play and have in turn recruited more players from north of the border.  Lacrosse Evolution has designed a 2 month program that meets once a week for an hour to focus on these skills and also will participate in indoor lacrosse tournaments in the area.


 

Canadian players in Division 1-3 College Fact: In the 10-year period between 2001 and 2011, the NCAA went from roughly 40 Canadian Born players, to more than 250 Canadians playing among the DI, DII and DIII ranks. Heading into the 2013 season, more than 100 Canadians will fill spots on DI rosters alone. 


 Why? Read below and register!  Why not teach your son or daughter both games!  


 

"Learning how to pick up Looses (Ground Balls) in tight area's,  protect the ball with usually 2 or maybe 3 players trying to take it from you, locate and open teammate, then deliver an accurate pass to your teammate takes ridiculous skill. I learned this in indoor lacrosse growing up in Canada.  It really helped me in the out door game when I got to the States", Tom Hajek, former All Pro & Captain Philadelphia Wings.
