In order to better serve our most advanced players, for the past few years Great Falls Lacrosse has fielded Girls’ Tournament Teams. For 2010 we have made a number of significant and exciting changes to enhance this program and elevate it to a more competitive experience.
Outstanding Coaches.In an effort to expose the players to coaching from high-quality, high school coaches and college-level players, Great Falls Lacrosse is proud to welcome former Duke University standout players Katie Laschinger, currently head coach at the Madeira School, and Courtney Fischer, as head coaches to our Red(5th/6th/7th grades) and Blue(7th & 8thgrades) select tournament teams.
Small Competitive Teams. Each select team will be limited to 16 players. Competition will be competitive for placement on one of these teams, and a full commitment to practices, tournaments and special events from each accepted player and their parents will be required.
Summer Tournaments. New this year is the participation in 2 or 3 summer (June/July 2011) tournaments.
Open tryouts for these select teams will be held Thursday, September 9th 5:00 - 8:00 at Leo Santaballa field. This will be a competitive tryout and players who have not played in the Great Falls program will have the opportunity to tryout as well. Teams will practice one weekday evening each week.
While we are still finalizing the budget, we anticipate the cost approximately $600/per player for the full fall & summer program. This fee includes all tournament entry fees, uniforms, specialty clinics, and coaching stipends. We hope you will find this select program to be as exciting as we do.
