2017 Boys Spring Tryouts

 

SPRING TRAVEL LACROSSE EVALUATIONS - WILTON BOYS LACROSSE

Thank you for registering for the Spring 2017 season of Wilton Boys Lacrosse.  We are excited to have your sons in the program this year and look forward to a great season!  Please see below for information regarding Travel team evaluations for Grades 5 - 8.  

There are 2 separate evaluation sessions per grade, which will be held on Sunday March 5 and Sunday March 12 – times per grade are listed below.

We do understand that there may be some Winter Sports that could have playoff games on these days, so completely understand that those Sports take priority and we will discuss with those players/parents affected on a case by case basis. Please email  in advance of the tryout!

OUTSIDE OF WINTER SPORT PLAYOFF EXCEPTIONS, WE EXPECT ALL PLAYERS TO ATTEND BOTH SESSIONS OF TRYOUTS

Additionally, no parents will be allowed inside the playing area for tryouts. We all want to see our children practice and perform, but we feel that this is better for your children and reserved for players, coaches and evaluators only!

Location:  Sono Fieldhouse, 365 Martin Luther King Drive, Norwalk CT 06854

Dates & Times:

Sunday 3/5

  • 6th – 12pm - 1:15pm
  • 7th – 1:15pm - 2:30pm
  • 5th – 2:30pm - 3:45pm
  • 8th – 3:45pm - 5pm

Sunday 3/12

  • 8th  – 12pm - 1:15pm
  • 6th – 1:15pm - 2:30pm
  • 5th – 2:30pm - 3:45pm
  • 7th – 3:45pm - 5pm

Monday, 3/13 (Added on 2/28/17)(other than for heavy rain/snow, we will strive to hold this date - so plan accordingly if the weather is cold)

Location: Wilton High School Memorial Stadium Turf Field

  • 5th & 6th Grade from 6pm to 7:30pm
  • 7th and 8th grades from 7:30pm to 9pm
  • 3/13 will be an optional evaluation for those that attend the 3/5 and 3/12 dates but from our perspective it is always a positive thing for coaches to see you as many times as possible. If you have conflicts for either of those dates (or both), we expect your son to attend on the 13th.

Please arrive 20 minutes in advance for check-in.

 

Equipment:  All boys are required to have a stick, mouth guard, elbow pads, gloves, shoulder pads, athletic cup, water bottle and sneakers or turf shoes (preferred). Extra Goalie gear (except athletic cup) will be on hand for those without.

Other Information:  Boys will be evaluated on the 3 “A”s: Ability, Attitude and Athleticism. Prior year team placements are not a guarantee of 2017 team placement.

At the March 12th tryout, at your son’s designated start time, we are asking for parents to meet for a brief discussion about season expectations for WLA players and parents. There is a conference room at Sono Fieldhouse where we will gather and expect at least one parent per child to attend.

We look forward to seeing your boys at the evaluations, and are excited for the upcoming start of the 2017 spring season.  

Any questions should be addressed to Mike Corry at .   

Thank you,
