U 15 TEAM INFORMATION PAGE
This year the Washington Schoolgirls Lacrosse Assoication will be fielding a select team of the best players in the league to attend the US Lacrosse Championship event There is substantail planning involved in creating this opportunity for our players. Thank you to Kara Broadman for all of her hard work on behalf of our players.
The dates of the event are July 20-22. We anticipate travel dates to be July 18 - 22nd.
Try-Outs will be conducted by the Coach selected to head the team, however the team will be chosen by separate evaluators. Selection will be based upon criteria factors including player skill, player teamwork. Playing time will not be guaranteed. This is our first forray into competitive play and the objective is to showcase the development of the sport out here in our "non-traditional" area.
WSLA will provide the entrance fee for the event, but players will be asked to do specific fundraising events to help fund coach travel first and then to defray the expenses of the trip. To be clear, players will be responsible for the cost of their trip. We have a very limited scholarship fund available, but to date it is tiny.
To be eligible, players must be born in 1996 or later. This does mean that some 9th grade players would qualify to play on the team and we will be making this opportunity available to them.
Players must be nominated to tryout: Players will be contacted and sent registration forms and waivers to bring to tryouts at Lakeside High School 3/20/2011. Players will also need to bring $25 registration fee. Players who are not nominated by a coach will not be allowed to tryout for the WA State U15 Regional Team.
Please note: DAY OF TRYOUTS, NO LACROSSE TEAM APPAREL CAN BE WORN, NO CLUB, SCHOOL OR SELECT TEAM APPAREL. PLAYER WILL BE ASKED TO CHANGE CLOTHES IN ORDER TO TRY OUT
