Tryouts in November; Boys U12A & U14A as well as U14 Select Girl

SYL Families,

               We’re excited to announce that Simsbury Youth Lacrosse will conduct tryouts this November (dates listed below) for the U12 A Boys, U14 A Boys, & U14 Select Girls.  Tryouts will be held at Westminster School on Hovey Field (turf) under the lights.   Similar to prior seasons, the intention of the tryout is to develop rosters for the teams referenced above; results will be posted shortly after the tryout process concludes.  Rosters for other teams in the division (i.e., B teams) will be announced as we get closer to the start of the season as a result of some players registering late.  Players will be required to register for try-outs ($20 fee), additional information will be provided soon when the registration site opens. 

               Conducting tryouts in November, rather than late March provides many benefits to you and your child as well as the lacrosse program:

  1. Convenience: Tryouts will be held in Simsbury rather than 30 minutes away in Winsted.
  2. Weather:  Conducting tryouts in late March exposes us to the possibility of snow storms which could lead to delays in the tryout process.   We can also hit the fields earlier if we have a mild winter.
  3. Field:  We will have the ability to utilize a full size outdoor lacrosse field to better assess “game” type situations.   In addition,  some players have difficulty adjusting to a dome/indoor setting.
  4. Tryouts on weekdays:  This is intentional so tryouts do not conflict with in season games (e.g. Hockey, Football, Soccer, etc.) on the weekends.   We’ve discussed our plans with other sports programs.
  5. Pre-Season:  We will run pre-tryout “tune-up” sessions in Simsbury so your child may prepare for tryouts, dates are forthcoming.

  6. Evaluators:  Conducting try-outs in Simsbury allow for greater access to objective evaluators, potentially including Simsbury High School and Westminster coaches.  

Below are the dates for tryouts for the respective divisions, PLayers are strongly encouraged to attend both sessions:

U14 Select Girls:  Monday November 6th & Wednesday November 8th

U12 A Boys & U14 A Boys:  Monday November 13th & Friday November 17th
