SAANICH LACROSSE TRYOUT & ICEBREAKER SCHEDULE 2017

Please note change to process for 2017

Due to registration numbers this year we will not be doing full evaluations for all players in the novice, peewee, bantam and midget divisions. For the 2017 season Saanich Lacrosse will be doing strictly ‘A’ team coaches tryouts. There will be an ‘A’ and ‘B’ team in each division. If your child is interested in trying out for the ‘A’ team in their division they must attend one session but are encouraged to attend all sessions for their age group. Everyone who wants to tryout for the ‘A’ teams is encouraged to attend. If they do not attend any of the tryouts they will automatically be placed on the ‘B’ team for their division. The head coach from each division will be using these sessions to determine their ‘A’ team along with independent evaluators. If your player does not wish to play ‘A’ lacrosse please do not attend the tryout sessions, if your child attends the tryout they are committing to playing ‘A’ lacrosse if selected.

Your player will be advised of their placement by email by March 20/17.

If you have any questions or concerns in regards to this process please contact:

Hi Saanich Lacrosse Families,

This memo is intended for players in novice, peewee, bantam and midget.

Saanich Lacrosse will be announcing the ‘A’ team tryout schedule soon. If you wish to be considered for the ‘A’ team you are highly encouraged to attend all of the tryout sessions for your division. Please keep in mind that if you are selected to an ‘A’ team, the commitment will be:

- You will be practicing a minimum of 2 times per week approx. 2hrs (depending upon division).
- You should be anticipating going to 2-3 out of town tournaments and provincials.
- Other sports are encouraged but it is expected that if you are selected to an ‘A’ team that there is communication with your coach around schedules and that lacrosse is the primary focus.

Saanich Lacrosse is also pleased to announce the following appointments to the Head Coach positions in the following divisions:

- Midget A – Warren Blackwell, Rob Desormeaux, and Greg Batters
- Bantam A – Ken Passfield
- PeeWee A – Fred Jenner
- Novice A – Rob Shahi

Assistant coaches where necessary will be appointed at a later date.

Coaching assignments for all other teams will be announced once registration numbers and evaluations are finalized. Thank you to all who applied.

Hope everyone is looking forward to a great 2017 season!

Lesley Conway, President
Saanich Lacrosse Association
