Carlmont Boys Lacrosse 2020
Carlmont boys lacrosse fields a freshman/sophomore team and a varsity team of up to 25 players each.
Lacrosse is a growing, fast-paced sport that gives players the opportunity to combine elements of so many other sports they may have played before, such as basketball, soccer, football and hockey.
Practice times: Practices are Monday through Friday from 7:15 pm to 9:15 pm. In February when we need to share the field with multiple boys and girls soccer teams as well as girls lacrosse, we generally tend to skip one night a week and practice on Saturday morning instead.
All players are expected to commit to lacrosse and be at ALL practices and ALL games. Our game schedule can be found on the calendar tab of this site.
Tryouts: Varsity tryouts will be conducted between Feb 3 and Feb 15. Freshman and sophomores can try out for the varsity team. Equipment will be issued on Saturday, Feb. 1 from 9-10 am and from noon to 1 pm. (Join us for open field from 10 am to noon!) Those in winter sports will be given a tryout at the conclusion of their winter sport season.
New Players: More than half of Carlmont players started playing lacrosse in high school. New players are welcome and it is advised that they come out in their freshman or sophomore years. Because juniors and seniors must be on the varsity team (no underclassmen on the Frosh/soph team), most players need at least a year of playing to contend for a varsity roster position.
Equipment: Players without equipment are welcome to try the sport. Carlmont has protective gear for players, including helmets, shoulder pads, elbow pads and gloves. Players should provide at least their own lacrosse stick, mouth guard, athletic cup and cleats. Limited number of sticks are available for short term use during the tryout process.
Additional Varsity Tryout Information:
You must come to the first day knowing the basics of lacrosse. You should be throwing against a wall at least 15 minutes per day between now and Feb. 3.
You should be running now to increase cardio strength. Lacrosse is a running sport. You should come to tryouts conditioned and ready to run.
We have open field on Saturdays in January. No coaching is allowed, but come and dust off your stick skills before tryouts. We are anticipating a lot of players coming out for varsity and throwing before tryouts give you a better chance at making the team.
