The Wayland Select team program was established to offer youth lacrosse players in grades 5, 6, 7 and 8 an incremental opportunity to participate in a high level developmental atmosphere against very competitive teams. By participating in this program your child is acknowledging that lacrosse is his priority sport for the spring. This commitment is in addition to the town MBYLL program (which consists of 2 practices and 1 game per week). The Select Teams schedule will consist of 1 additional practice and 1 added game per week.
Both teams will be participate in the MBYLL (previously MSYLL) League. Tryouts may be required, depending on the number of players interested in participating. If your son does not make the roster, registration fees will be refunded.
Select Team Player Commitment
Players and parents should understand that participating on a Select lacrosse team is for those players who are making a more serious commitment to lacrosse. As a member of the Select team, players are expected to participate in all practices and games. Any planned absences or vacations (such as April school vacation) must be communicated to the head coach prior to team selection and may impact the final roster decisions. Select teams do not carry large rosters, so missing one or more practices can materially impact the practice plans and the improvement of the team and the individual. Select teams make every effort to involve all players in games, but playing time is based on ability, effort, commitment and production on the field. We would love to have your player on our Select team but please keep the above in mind when making a commitment for a Select team season.
Cost and Schedule
The cost will be $215 which covers a shooter shirt, professional coach, fields, referee, balls, etc. If we were to participate in tournaments an extra fee would charged. The season will begin in March with practices and end in mid-June. Practices will generally be on Friday afternoon with games on Saturday. This will in addition to the MBYLL practices and games. Players are required to attend all their practice obligations during the week to be able to participate in the games.
