Following tryouts, we will survey the team to confirm player availability for the proposed events and additional weekends/tournaments to determine any additional summer events.

We understand the summer schedule is busy with box lacrosse and family planning. Youth players should plan to attend a minimum of 1 summer event, up to a max of 3. Tournament fees are paid by travelling players only for each particular weekend, so you only pay for events you attend. 

Youth teams will compete in fall ball events in NY, MI with one possible event as a distance event in PA or MD. When selecting events for youth teams, we look at finding events that provide quality competition, good value, within a reasonable drive.
