Lake Travis Youth Lacrosse is gearing up for our next formal season which will be the 2015 Fall Program. Here are the details:
2015 Fall Program
This year we will be fielding Fall travel teams for the 5/6 and 7/8 age groups. We are going to try very hard to field a team for 3/4 as well. Because of the expense and time commitment with travel, the rosters of theses teams will be kept manageable (approx 15-16 max) and will be by invitation only. At this point the only other LT Youth Lacrosse run programs planned for the Fall will be the continuation of the Intro to Lacrosse beginner sessions in November which we will be doing in conjunction with LTYA.
Why not open to everyone?
The selection and decision on how many teams to form is a careful balance of number of players, coaches and skill levels. The fall competition is for the most part comprised of "Elite/select" teams and it is important that we field competitive teams where the boys get lots of playing time and the opportunity to play at a higher level. The reason we cannot open up the fall to everyone is we may not have the roster space to accommodate everyone and some players may not yet have the skills or experience to play at this level.
How are you deciding who to invite?
The decision on who to invite for the Fall Travel Teams will be based on assessments from the Spring 2015 season as provided by and recommended from the head coach of that team. In the case where there is a new player that has moved to the area or for some reason was not able to be assessed in the Spring a separate assessment will be conducted in July for those players. We have some age groups that are in between having one or two teams. In this circumstance we will first form one team from accepted invitations and then send "Wait List Invitations" until we either have the numbers (players and coaches) to form a second team or determine that a second roster is not feasible.
For 2015 Spring participants the first wave of invitations are going out the third week of June. Costs for the fall will be detailed in the invitation but the range is $300-$400.
