Upcoming Fall (2014), Winter (14/15) and Summer (2015) Boys Lacrosse Options
Many of you have expressed an interest in LAX options for the coming fall and winter, with tryouts for select summer 2015 starting as early as this weekend we wanted to get a communication out with options for everyone! Confusing, yes…but we try to break it down for you below!
Summer select travel teams generally are available for players entering the 4th grade in the fall (i.e., if you are entering 4th grade this fall you want to try our now for summer 2015 travel teams) through 12th grade. Some programs allow players going into 3rd grade, check with each program to determine eligibility.
Please note that players typically try out for multiple teams and then make a determination which team to join when they get the results of their tryouts. This is particularly helpful if a player does not make their first team option but gets chosen for another, by trying out for multiple teams they may still have an option to play.
John Jay Youth Lacrosse – we plan to offer fall clinics/pickup games on Saturday afternoons, details will be out shortly.
Prime Time Lacrosse, based in Cross River is run by John Jay and Stevens grad Nicholas Daniello, tryouts for 2015 summer select teams are in early September (see website for details). Players selected for a 2015 summer team have the option of also playing this fall and winter. Prime Time may also be opening up winter clinics for players that do not make the summer select teams.
Prime Time also runs fall (and spring) training clinics open to all players
