*The league rescheduled the bracketing meeting to the 19th and thus the delay with announcing teams* Before we announce teams, we need to ensure that the teams' brackets we entered will be honored and nothing changes which can potentially impact rosters.*

One of the founding principals of our club is player development. There are several factors we consider to give our players the optimal opportunity to succeed. Having fun is a priority, working hard for success can only truly come from enjoying what you are doing. We love the game of lacrosse and we love the positive values playing team sports can teach kids. Every team will be geared to work hard and have fun.
Development and enjoyment will not happen if a player is not being challenged or if a player is being challenged too much. Our team selection is guided by trying to find the best place for each player to develop the most.
With technical and tactical player development combined with enriching the players' love of the game, the team assignment process will be based on past performance, past coach recommendations, current rating, team commitment, work ethic and potential for development.
Ratings involve independent evaluators who rate the candidates based on various individual skill and team play criteria.
For levels 10U, 12U and 14U, players will be placed on a Varsity or JV (A, A/B or B) squad.
The placement for this year will NOT determine if your child has the ability to become a top lacrosse player. Players develop at different rates, remember Michael Jordan was cut from his high school basketball team.
When players are placed on teams, it means that as a TEAM they can collectively compete in that bracket. I strongly urge players and parents not to place too much emphasis on the brackets, as many factors go into determining what teams players are placed on and what league bracket that team is placed in. After all, this is REC.
These teams are NOT set for the season. During the first 2-3 weeks of practice, players may be moved between the teams in order to find the best fit. This will allow players who have matured or worked hard in the offseason to be identified and placed accordingly; likewise, the player who has shifted commitments away from lacrosse can be moved as well. We understand that not all players may perform their best during a 1-hour evaluation.
No refunds after player evaluations. No refunds after teams are made.
