Fall Select Lacrosse Team – Tryouts

Posted by Barry Marenberg on August 10, 2010

We have arranged for the Fall Select lacrosse team tryout to be held on September 1 on the football field at Fairleigh Dickinson University in Madison.  The tryout will start at 5:30pm.  As communicated previously, the tryout will be presided over by an independent lacrosse coach.  There will be a fee of $10 (cash) for each player to tryout (this money goes to compensating the tryout coach).
All players should arrive a few minutes early to dress, warm-up, etc.  The tryout will commence promptly at 5:30pm and last about 90 minutes.  Players should bring all their equipment and inform the tryout coach as to what position he will be trying out for. 
The plan is to select a roster of 20 players.  Those players that are not selected will have the option of registering for the Fall league as individuals and be placed on other teams needing additional players.  I want to emphasize that the goal of the Fall team is to play top-level lacrosse and have fun doing it.  The boys should not be nervous or anxious about the tryout and should just come out, have fun and do the best they can. 
All games in the Fall league will be played Sunday afternoons on the turf at FDU in Madison at a time between 2pm and 5pm.  The season goes from September 20th to November 8th.  There will be no practices.  The boys simply show up on Sunday afternoons each week to play lax.

The Fall team is not affiliated with the Chiefs in any way.  Furthermore, I want to emphasize again that participation (or non-participation) in the Fall league will not have any effect on a player’s ability to participate in the Winter league or the Spring Chiefs team.  Lastly, this lacrosse team is not intended as a substitute for football or soccer but only as an opportunity for the boys to continue playing lacrosse in the Fall in addition to the conventional Fall sports.

If you have questions about the Fall league or any other lacrosse-related questions, do not hesitate to contact me.
