2015 TEAM SASK TRY OUT DATES

 

For the 2014-2015 Lacrosse season the Board of Directors has decided to have the Team Sask Box and Team Sask Field tryouts held on the same weekend.  This decision was made so only one weekend had to be blacked out for tournaments for try outs and didn’t interfere with any tournaments as this was a big concern last year.  This will also give Coaches a chance to watch players doing both Box and Field tryouts which is particularly helpful for players who wish to try out for both Box and Field teams.

This year the try outs will be held on April 25th and 26th.   The South Camp will be held in Moose Jaw on Saturday, April 25th and the North and Final Camp will be held in Saskatoon on Sunday, April 26th.   Box tryouts will be held in the mornings with Field tryouts being held in the afternoons.  Specific locations and times will be sent out once they are determined.  Coaches will then meet after the try outs and select their roster and then contact players.

Applications will be accepted from January 15th to April 15th and the Office is looking at having an online registration option, more details on that will be sent out closer to January 15th.  A word/PDF registration will also be sent out closer to January 15th that can be filled out and mailed in for those who would rather not do the online option.   Try Out fees will be $60 which goes towards covering the cost of facilities for the try outs.

If you have any questions or more information please contact Bridget Pottle, SLA Executive Director, at 306.780.9216/1.866.780.9216 ext. 1 or via email at ed@sasklacrosse.net.
