Frequently Asked Questions
- What experience does my player need to play summer tournament lacrosse?
The requirements vary by age group with less experience being required at the youth levels vs. high school. That said, one of our program goals is to lift up the level of high school play in our area. As a result, we only require one year of experience in order to play and teams will be rostered and placed in tournaments according to team strength where tournament hosts permit.
- When is the registration period?
Summer registration is open between mid-April and the first week of June however teams may be filled before registration officially closes. Partial season options are available to avoid summer vacations.
- What is included in the registration fee?
Player registration fees are intended to cover uniform costs, practice and training time charges, field usage fees, ref and tournament fees, equipment and coaching costs.
Travel costs including room and board (where applicable) are not included and must be accounted for by each player’s family. We will not be providing a team bus or chaperoned travel for our tournament events.
- How can I register my child?
Online registration can be completed via the registration link on this page.
- How much are the registration fees?
Registration fees will vary for each team dependent upon the number of practices, games, tournaments, coaches and uniform costs and will be reported on this page.
- Will the team be staying in the same hotel at distant venues?
We will notify everyone of individual tournament requirements for hotel reservations as some require we use certain properties. If not, we will establish a hotel property that will serve as our home base for the weekend but your stay there will not be mandatory. Please note that we believe camaraderie away from the field is important however our coaching staff will not be responsible for watching your player away from the field. Please plan to have an adult parent or guardian with your child during the tournament weekends.
