Team Connecticut Tryouts
TEAM CONNECTICUT TRYOUTS
Hi everyone hope you are having a great summer. There is a new summer lacrosse program in the area called Team Connecticut. Most of the top high school coaches in the New Haven area (Cheshire, North Haven, Guilford, Choate, Notre Dame - WH, Foran) are involved in the program.
The summer lacrosse club program usually runs from end of our High School season in June through the middle of July. You will have 2 practices a week and 4 tournaments. All details can be found on the website www.teamctlax.com. The club program is usually around $1000 plus expenses. It is a chance to play with some of the best players in the area then when we travel play against some of the best players in their age group.
Tryouts for next summer are this weekend at Cheshire. More information at www.teamctlax.comunder registration tab. I know this is a tough time for many since fall sports are currently going on. If you want to be involved in Team CT next summer we are working on finding another tryout date just let me know. If you're not interested in doing a summer team but want to improve your skills there is weekend training throughout the fall and winter that you can attend. If you have any questions about Team CT feel free to contact me either by email or phone.
Make-A-Wish Lacrosse just completed our 5th summer season with 170+ young athletes on 8 teams. Each team held 10+ practices and competed in 4 tournaments across New England. More importantly, our young athletes participated in raising money to bring hope, strength and joy to children with life-threatening medical conditions.
For the 2016 summer season, we raised over $140,000 for Make-A-Wish!
Registration for 2017 summer team evaluations are now open. We are offering teams for the following graduation years: 2020, 2021, 2022, 2023, 2024 & 2025.
The first try-out will be on Saturday, September 17th at InSports (29 Trefoil Drive, Trumbull CT). Go towww.mawlax.com to register today.
The try-out schedule is listed below:
· 2024 & 2025 Teams: 5:00pm – 6:00pm
· 2022 & 2023 Teams: 6:00pm - 7:30pm

For next summer, we are excited to announce that we are adding a 2025 Boys’ team. We are anticipating a high number of registrations for this age group and plan on putting together 1-2 teams with professional coaches.
Because we support a non-profit organization, we are able to keep out-of-pocket costs to a minimum. Each player receives a personalized fundraising website and email templates to help support the Connecticut Chapter of Make-A-Wish.
There are many quality summer lacrosse programs in the area and we suggest that you check them out. Make-A-Wish Lacrosse is unique in that our young athletes receive the combined value of improving at their sport while learning about the impact their own philanthropy dedication can have on another child’s life.
Attached is some additional program information and press release for our "Youth Engagement Innovation Award".
Kelly Scianna from Jonathan Law and Bobby McGinnis from Foran High School are the recipients of the 2016 Charles F. Boyle Memorial Scholarship
Kelly will be attending Elms College in Massachusetts and Bobby will be attending Roger Williams University in Rhode Island.
They are two remarkable students who have had a positive impact within their schools community through academics, sports and extra curricular activities. They have also touched the lives of many within the community they live. We wish them the best of luck.
