A. Each age division is on the floor once each week (Monday – Thursday) for development for approximately 10 weeks (Mid-April - End of June). The soft lacrosse and paperweight program typically run on Thursday’s at the Elora arena.

Q. What is the time commitment for registering to play Representative Lacrosse?

A. Spring Field runs for approximately 6 weeks (April – May) with tryouts and practices taking place January – March). The field season ends with Field Provincials, traditionally in Brampton, on the May long weekend (different divisions play on different days). Field time will vary from team to team – it is determined by the coaching staff.  However, players can expect to be on the field, weather permitting 1-2 times during the week for practices (no games during the week) and then will generally play two games on either Saturday or Sunday. Typically, teams will play 1-12 field games prior to Provincials.

Representative Box starts April ending with Provincials in Whitby in early August. Similar to Field lacrosse players can expect to be on the floor 2-4 times per week but his will be a combination of practices and games (home and away). Typically teams will play 15-25 box lacrosse games per season (including tournaments).

Q. When are Rep Tryouts?

A. Box Tryouts typically begin the first week of April and will be posted on our website. All players interested in trying out for a rep team MUST attend the tryouts for the #1 team in their respective age group.  If selected during that set of tryouts (typically 3 tryout sessions), the tryout process is over.  If not selected, the player will then tryout for the #2 team in their respective age group and so on.  Players should be prepared to attend multiple tryouts depending on the number of rep teams being selected.

All players are required to try out for the #1 team in their division and be cut/released in order to be eligible to attend tryouts for the #2 team in the division and so on.  Parents/players cannot self-select the rep team that they wish to play for and only attend those tryouts.

Before participating in a tryout players must be fully registered and fees paid prior to stepping on the floor. If the player is not registered by this time, they may not be eligible to try out for a rep team for that season.

Q. What if I cannot attend try outs?

A. All players are required to attend try outs in order to be considered for a position on a rep team.  It is expected that players and families will make every effort to attend the posted try out dates.  Any exception must be approved in advance by the president,  president@cwminorlacrosse.ca.
