Senior Boys' Tryouts - Information

Parents,

This will serve as a reminder that if your Son plans to tryout for our Senior Division "A-Team" you will need to register him through the normal registration tab on the Simsbury Youth Lacrosse website.

Additionally, I wanted to address some questions that have some up from a few of the parents regarding the upcoming tryouts.

1) This is only required for those who have a real interest in trying out for this particular team.  Selections to our "B-Teams" will be made at a later date and will not be a part of these tryout sessions.

2) Your son will need to come prepared with full gear on - (Helmut, gloves, arm & shoulder pads and athletic cup.

3) Since this is an indoor facility with a synthetic surface - cleats will not be allowed - Please have you son come with either sneakers or turf shoes.

Lastly, our deadline for the Tryout Registration will be Friday March 13th.  Please note - Walk-ons will not be allowed to tryout. 

See note below regarding the original details for the Senior Boys Tryouts.

Regards,

Alex 

 

Original E-Mail - Dated: 2/13/2015:

Parents,

Due to the past 2 years of perpetual delays in our tryout schedules due to snow and related field conditions we have decided to move the tryout process indoors for the 2015 spring season.

Consistent with the description of our "Boys" program found on the SimsLax website, we will be field 1 CVYL "A-Team" for the Senior division this year that will also participate as our CONNY representative team.  The Senior division will also field 2-3 balanced "B" teams that will continue to complete within the CVYL league.

It is important to note that the CONNY/A team will generally travel more than our other teams and we ask that participants on this teams commit to lacrosse as their primary spring sport.  Playing time on this team will in part be determined by attendance and effort throughout the entire season - (Practices and Games).

 

Absentees:

Any player interested in trying out for this team must be in attendance for these scheduled tryout sessions.  If a player is unable to attend due to illness, injury or other good cause, notification must be made in advance to the applicable Division Director and the excused player will be assigned to a subsequent session as determined by the Division Director. 

 

Tryout Location:

Premier Sports Complex, 147 Torrington Road, Winsted, CT 06098 - (Next to the DMV)

 

Tryout Schedule:

Saturday March 21 - 11am-1pm: 1st Day of Tryouts

Initial Selections to be Posted on the SimsLax Website later that day

Sunday March 22 - 11am-1pm: 2nd Day of Tryouts

Final Selections to be Posted on the SimsLax Website as soon as possible. 

 

Registration Process:

For those who plan on attending, you will need to register your son through the SimsLax website registration tab - (You will see a separate tab for the Senior Boys Division Tryout Registration)

Additional information on the tryout process it self will be sent out closer to the actual session dates.  In the mean time, feel free to contact me directly with any questions. 

Regards,

Alex

Director, Senior Boys

Welcome to the 2015 season!

All participants must be registered with Simsbury Youth Lacrosse Association (SYL) and U.S. Lacrosse.  All participants must wear appropriate protective equipment, which must include a helmet, mouth guard, gloves, arm pads, shoulder pads (that cover the heart), and a protective cup.  All participants must supply their own stick.  Cleats are recommended.

SYL encourages kids to play multiple sports.  We are tolerant of kids that want to play another spring sport, especially at the Developmental, Bantam and Junior Divisions.  As possible, our coaches will work with coaches of other sports to avoid conflicts.  As described below, with respect to our most competitive teams in the Senior Division, we do ask for more of a commitment.
 
The Developmental Division does not have tryouts and is instructional, playing only a limited number of modified games.  The Division will practice at Henry James Middle School (HJMS) School on Tuesday and Thursday, from 5:30 to 7.  The Director of the Division is Dom Lattanzi.  Dom will post or email further information.
 
The Bantam Division does not have tryouts, is mostly instructional, but does play games.  The boys will be divided into 3 equal teams.  The teams will practice at the same time at Henry James Middle School (HJMS) on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.  The Director of the Division is Bryan Bulger.  Bryan will post or email further information.
 
The Junior Division does have tryouts.  All teams are travel teams and will play competitive schedules in the Connecticut Valley Youth Lacrosse league (CVYL) (www.cvyl.org).  The Division will have 1 A team and 2 equal B teams.  The teams will practice and play home games at HJMS on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and on some Saturdays.  The Director of the Division is Paul Truting.  Paul will post or email further information. 
 
The Senior Division does have tryouts.  All teams are travel and will play competitive schedules.  The Division will include 1 team (comprised of both 7th and 8th graders, referred to as our “CONNY U-15/A team”) registered in the Connecticut New York Lacrosse Association (CONNY)(www.connylacrosse.org).  The team will also compete in the CVYL as our A team.  The CONNY/A team will practice on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at HJMS.  The team will play games on Saturdays and Sundays.  This team is our most competitive team.  The CONNY/A team will generally travel more than our other teams and we ask that participants on those teams commit to lacrosse as their primary spring sport.  This does not, however, mean that a participant cannot play another spring sport.  The coaches of the CONNY/A team will work with coaches from other sports to try to avoid conflicts.  Conflicts will be handled by the CONNY/A coaches on a case by case basis.  
The Division will additionally have three B teams.  These teams are registered in CVYL only.  The three CVYL teams will practice and play home games on Monday, Wednesday and Friday evenings at HJMS.  They may also play games on Saturdays.  The Director of the Division is Alex Harris.  Alex will post or email further information as the season approaches.
 
Tryouts for the CONNY/A team is mandatory.  Information about tryouts will be posted on the SYL website.
 
We look forward to another great season.
