AN IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING TRYOUTS FOR BOYS AND GIRLS TRAVEL PROGRAMS - GRADES 5 -8:
RYL 2016 SPRING TRYOUTS/EVALUATIONS SCHEDULE
We have two DIFFERENT locations for Tryouts - Chelsea Piers Stamford and Brewster Sports Center
Please review the schedule carefully
RYL is again proud to announce our evaluations/tryout dates for grades 5th-8th ONLY boys and girls. There is no additional cost and no need to register.
RYL uses these mandatory sessions in order to appropriately place our 5-8th grade travel teams in tiers of A-teams and B-teams. We do this in order to match our scheduling with other town programs to make sure the competition we play is appropriate to maximize the experience we seek for all our participants. Our 3rd & 4th grade teams are split evenly given we play other town programs with evenly split teams below 5th grade.
RYL allocates significant resources toward making the tryout/evaluation process fair and we encourage all our players and parents to remember that we do not have cuts - everyone is placed on a team. We strive to make the team experience the best for all participants and having thorough tryouts/evaluations is an important part of that process. Come to tryouts in full equipment (full equipment !!! including mouthpieces and cups BOYS, Girls Mouthpieces and Goggles!!! ) and with cleats and water! NO MOUTHPIECE = NO PLAY !!!
Please see below the 2016 pre-season tryout/evaluation schedule per grade.
You do not need to register for tryouts/evaluations. If you are registered already for RYL travel lacrosse (ages 5th-8th) then we expect you to make both of the tryouts. If you cannot make a tryout, please contact our Boys and Girls Travel Coordinators (under Contact tab):
