WINTER SEASON 2017

 
 2017-2018 SEASON



We are excited about the upcoming changes to the club!  We know that these improvements will allow us to provide an opportunity to better serve our girls and grow lacrosse in Milwaukee.  We thank you for bearing with us through our growing pains and your patience as we navigate the best path forward. This has been a learn-as-you-go process and we appreciate your family’s continued partnership as we grow.

Although we realize that we are changing directions a bit; we have decided that beginning the season in the summer instead of the fall will allow for a more logical progression for the teams throughout their year together.  We’ll hold a skills assessment for the 2017-18 season in late April where we’ll be looking to add additional new players with the hope of fielding multiple teams in each age group.  Our goal will be to move towards graduation year teams whenever numbers allow us to. That is how the teams will progress through their high school club years as they transition to Black Lax as well. Graduation year teams are optimal for player growth & development, and in later years for college recruiting.  It may take a few seasons to get there, but graduation year teams will be the goal that we’re moving towards.  Once you have been placed on a team that will be your team for the 2017-18 season.  We’ll hold an additional skills assessment in the fall for any roster spots that may become available.

 


TOURNAMENT TEAMS

U15 Team (2022) Competes in U15 age bracket

U13 Team (2023, 2024, 2025) Competes in U13 age bracket 


*The number of teams we field will be determined after registration and skills assessment. If numbers permit, teams will be separated into graduation year teams whenever possible.  Additional mixed age teams may be formed if numbers warrant.   

 

SKILLS ASSESSMENT

Skills Assessment for 2017-18 Season will be held at date TBD in late April.  Additional skills assessment will occur in August for new players to fill any open roster spots for the Fall Season.  Any open Winter Season roster spots will be filled by individual skills assessment at a team practice.
