2020 Team Sask Open Try Outs
2020 TEAM SASK REGISTRATIONS
The SLA is now accepting registrations for the 2020 Team Sask Open Try Outs. Below you will find detailed information on the Try Outs and the try out process, at the end of the information will be the links to register.
This year the Team Sask Program will have two Open Try Outs (February 22nd/23rd & March 21st/22nd) and Invitational Try Outs on April 4th/5th. These try outs will included evaluations for both Box and Field teams. Any registered player with the SLA is invited and encouraged to attend the Open Try Outs for their appropriate age division. After Open Try Outs initial cuts will be made and selected players invited back to the Invitational Try Outs, with final rosters being decided after that. Evaluations will be done by the Team Sask Coaches, and additional Evaluators invited by the SLA and Provincial Committee to ensure a fair selection process. All Evaluators have been involved with Lacrosse for numerous years and have the necessary experience and skill set to help the Team Sask program with evaluations. Once again this year the program will be utilizing Skill Shark, a professional evaluation software that ensures a transparent try out selection.
Parents will be notified by March 27th if their player is invited to the next stage of Try Outs, with final rosters being decided by May 29th (Box) and June 19th (Field).

Players will receive a Team Sask Pinnie, four on floor sessions for Open Try Outs, and an additional two on floor sessions for Invitational try outs.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
- Do players need to attend try outs in Moose Jaw and Saskatoon? We encourage players to attend all floor times to allow Coaches/Evaluators more time to adequately evaluate. The try out fee is for all four sessions, and there will not be discounted fees for missed floor time. We do understand that life is hectic, so if players are unable to attend they need to indicate on their Registration form which try outs they can't attend so we can let Coaches.
- Will Team Sask conflict with other Lacrosse teams? Team Sask doesn't start practicing until July to prevent conflict during the regular season. The teams will not practice on weekends in July where Provincials are booked.
- Can a player be selected to a Box and Field team? There are not limits on how any teams a player can be one, providing they are in their appropriate groups. Teams work together to prevent scheduling conflicts for Team Practices and events for those players who are interested in both the Box and Field programs. Players who do try out can use the discount code COMBO2020 on their Field Try Registration.
- What is the cost of the Team Sask program? The cost varies with each team depending on where they will be traveling for Nationals. At the Open Try Out sessions will be parent information sessions that will go over more details of the program, included associated costs.
- If I have more questions who can I contact? Any questions relating to the Team Sask program can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
