Full Force Lacrosse – Fall/Winter 2012-13 Tryouts

Posted by Barry Marenberg on August 17, 2012

Full Force Lacrosse is planning to field Fall and Winter lacrosse 7th/8th grade teams for 2012-13.  We will be holding our tryout on Friday August 17 from 7:15-9:30pm at Snyder Avenue Turf Field in Berkeley Heights.  Please arrive at 7 PM for check-in and to receive your pinney.  There will be a $10 tryout fee to cover the cost of the field.  You must bring all your equipment and plenty of water. A make-up tryout will be held on Wednesdsay August 22 at Aircast field in New Providence for those who are unable to make it to the A
We realize that some players will not be able to play in the Fall due to commitments to other sports.  HOWEVER, if you plan to play for Full Force Lacrosse in the Winter, you must still attend this tryout. 
The tryout is open to any player entering 7th or 8th grade this Fall and is not limited to Chiefs players so please feel free (we actually encourage you) to forward this e-mail to any of your son’s friends in surrounding towns who may have an interest in playing for the team this Fall and/or Winter.  We hope to field a small and highly competitive team, and hope to have a large turnout from which to select the team. 
Our plan is to enroll the Fall team in the Rutgers league.  This league plays its games on Sunday afternoons/evenings between 5pm and 9pm on the Rutgers campus in Piscataway.  Games are not typically played on any other days and at any other location.  We do hope to hold a few local practices prior to the start of the game season. We are also considering entering the team in a Fall tournament.  For the Winter we will again enroll in the ISP indoor league up in Randolph.  The Force 7th/8th grade team won this league last Winter.
Once the tryout is complete, those who are informed that they have been selected will be provided with the information to register with the Rutgers league as a member of the Full Force Lacrosse team.  We anticipate that the fee for the Rutgers league will be $150 per player and we intend to order shorts and shooter shirts (we are searching for a cost effective package for the shorts/shirt).
We are very excited about the upcoming Fall and Winter seasons and look forward to seeing your son at the tryout.  Once again, check-in on on August 17th is 7pm and the tryout will commence at 7:15pm sharp.  We will, of course, have frequent water breaks and will have an EMT on-site.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email and we will respond as quickly as possible.  Full Force Lacrosse maintains a website at: so be sure to check it frequently for additional information.
