In the next few weeks (yet to be determined), we will hold tryouts for our Select teams. We will definitely field a Select team for the boys at the U11, U13 and U15 age groups and, depending on the interest, we may have a U9 team for one of the tournaments as well. Also, we are working on one or more post-season opportunities for our girls.
Tryouts for any Select team are completely open to players with either (1) a minimum of 2 years of experience during the spring season or (2) players who have previously played on a Select team. Accordingly, irrespective of the team that your child is playing on for the Rec season, if he or she wants to continue to play, they are highlyencouraged to try out. Select teams are also open to middle school and age-eligible 9th graders who are currently playing for their schools. We want to offer this opportunity to as many players as possible, while being cognizant of appropriate team size. Playing time on a Select team is within the coach’s discretion and, although playing time for each player during each game is encouraged, unlike Rec lacrosse, there is no equal playing time requirement. Our goal is for our teams to be competitive, but most importantly, for our players and families to have a great experience. Coaches will be:
U13-Kevin Williams, Larry Gemmell, and Darryl Head
U15- Mike Chessock
We are in the process of finalizing the tournaments that we will play in; however, barring unforeseen circumstances, we will be playing in the following tournaments:
Rage by the River in Hickory – May 16 and 17
The Frenzy in Martinsville – May 30
Big South in Charlotte – June 6 and 7
Our Select program is being organized by board member Kevin Williams and if you have any questions, please feel free to contact Kevin at 336-714-4150 firstname.lastname@example.org
