JV and Varsity Boys Lacrosse tryouts will be held 2/19-2/22. Tryouts are open to all 8th-12th grade boys enrolled at ACPS with Varsity tryouts for experienced lacrosse players in grades 9-12.
Tryouts for both teams will begin on 2/19 at 4:30 pm at Chinquapin Park for a fitness test consisting of a timed run, push-ups and sit-ups. Following the fitness test, we will hand out equipment to those who need it and those athletes trying out for Varsity will meet for a chalk talk. On 2/20-2/22, tryouts for both JV and Varsity will be from 4:30-6:30 pm at Hammond MS. These will be practice times for the remainder of the season. Arrival time for tryouts and practice is 4:15 pm. Please see below for important academic and physical eligibility requirements.
Athletes will be evaluated on stick skills, endurance, agility, game sense, coachability, hustle/effort and more. On Friday, 2/22, each athlete will have a conversation with the coaching staff to let them know if they have made a team and which team they are on.
