3rd/4th Grade Boys

Based on the numbers of boys who sign up, there will be distinct levels of teams.  ~20 boys will be placed on the Orange team.  All teams will practice 2 times a week play 8-10 games a season and 2-3 jamborees.  Paid coaches will be selected before the tryouts are held.  Parent assistant coaches will be selected once the teams are made.  No child will be cut from an opportunity to play lacrosse.   If required, the Blue or White Team (lowest level available) will carry a larger team and go with a 3-4 squad rotation for games.    All 3rd/4th teams receive 3D training at a frequency TBD. 

Orange Team:  Competitive Team made of up of boys that can actively catch and throw and have a foundational level of lacrosse offenses and defenses.  Practices are mandatory and are focused on stickwork and developing a high-level of lacrosse IQ.  If a boy misses more than 3 events during the season (exception is religious activity, school event, or illness), they may be moved down a level and their spot is taken by a member of the B team.   This will be in the coaches’ and board’s discretion depending on the situation.

Playing time in aggregate for the season should be ~40% for each player that contributes positively to the culture of the team.  This means that some players will play close to 100% of the game and others will play the minimum amount. 

Blue Team/White Team:  More balanced teams made up of boys with varying levels of talent.  Practices will focus on developmental stick work and beginnings of running offensive and defensive schemes.  Practices are not mandatory but strongly advised to attend.   If there is a lower level team than the one the boy is put on, practices will be mandatory and the 3 misses rule that exists for the Orange team will be in place for the Blue Team (once again with coaches’ and board discretion). 

Playing time in each game shall be greater than 50% for each game for each player that contributes positively to the culture of the team.  This means that some players will play close to 100% of the game and others will play the minimum amount.

Uniforms are required and are not included in the registration fee.

7th/8th Grade Boys

The goal with the 7th/8th grade program is to minimize conflicts with the Modified programs at Bell and 7 Bridges.  All practices will be once a week (potentially on Thursdays) and home games will be on Saturday mornings from 8:30-10am.  There will be ~9 games and 2-3 jamborees. 

~25 boys will be selected for the Orange Squad.  If numbers allow (~18), a 2nd team will be created. If there aren’t numbers to support a 2nd team, the players will be recommended to strictly play Modified.   

For all boys in grades 7th and 8th that choose to just play Modified, there will be an option available to play in fall practices only. 

There is no requirement placed on the coach for playing time. 

Uniforms are required and are not included in the registration fee.
