Shamrocks Lacrosse will be evaluating new players for our 2020-21 teams throughout the summer on a rolling basis. We will be offering spots to players entering grades 2 through 11 this fall for both our Boys and Girls program. Our 2020-21 season will begin in September 2020 and carry though until July 2021. New players will have the opportunity to be evaluated at our Small Group Training and other training events from July through September. This will give us the opportunity to coach the players in a smaller environment to determine if we are the right fit. Players can also select multiple dates in order to be evaluated over the course of a few dates rather than one tryout. The youngest teams (2029 and 2030) may have additional evaluations through the year to fill out their rosters.
To register for a Small Group Training Session and Evaluation please click on the link below. Players should select at least one training session date.
Our Program Goals:
1. To create a positive lacrosse experience that will develop your child as lacrosse player and more importantly, as a person.

3. To teach valuable life lessons such as good sportsmanship, teamwork, maturity and competitiveness.
