M&D 2019/20 Tryout Information

M&D LAX will be holding open tryouts for the 2019/20 season for the high school graduation classes of 2022 through 2029 on July 15, 16th (17th will be raindate) .   M&D will keep approximately 45 top players per graduating class as teams are formed based on high school graduating years (i.e., class of 2023). This year M&D will have teams for the graduation classes of 2021 through 2029.  Girls selected for the club will form two teams, Black and Red. The placement of players to the Black or the Red team will be based on player ability, skills, and commitment to club participation. If the try-out numbers are very large for a specific age group, a third team called the White team will be added. M&D does not allow players to play up or down a grade level, although 2030’s can try-out for the 2029 teams and play up for one year since there is no 2030 team yet. Tryout results will be posted to this site on (TBA) when the summer season is completed. Players listed on the posted roster have made the team, while those omitted from the roster have not.


M&D LAX tryouts are truly open for all players. Players from prior years are not guaranteed a spot on the team. Player selections will be made based on ability and individual skills. Overall talent and player commitment will be weighed heavily on player selection. Therefore, in an effort to provide players maximum exposure during tryouts, please plan on participating ALL (3) days to ensure coaches have ample opportunities to see each player.


The location for the try-outs will be at (see grad yr location below) Marriotts Ridge HS / Glenelg HS / Reservoir HS.   All players are expected to wear clothing and shoes that are appropriate for outside play.  It will also be helpful if the players could wear a reversible jersey with a light and dark color other than an M&D reversible.

Additionally, players are NOT to wear any M&D LAX apparel or apparel from their respective high schools. M&D does not want to project any perceived favoritism or bias towards former M&D LAX players. All players are expected to bring regulation women’s lacrosse stick, mouth guard, and goggles.  All goalies are to provide their own equipment.  Restroom facilities will be provided. An athletic trainer will be on-site, but if you need an ankle taped, you must provide your own tape.



NOTE: Please do not try out for M&D LAX unless you are fully committed to playing with the M&D club. It is unfair to take a roster spot from someone who really wants to play.

Player Commitment
It is expected that any player who tries out for M&D LAX (2019/20 Season) that makes a team will be playing for M&D during the fall of 2019 & summer of 2020. The classes of 2024 through 2029 will also be playing in the spring of 2020 (see details below). It places M&D in a difficult situation when players take roster spots and then quit to play another sport or fulfill another commitment.  Therefore, if you try out and make an M&D team, you are obligated to play.

 

M&D LAX anticipates a very high demand for M&D roster spots for the 2019/20 season. As such, M&D is seeking players who are committed to playing lacrosse for M&D. Players are expected to attend all practices

 

Middle School Team Policy - For the classes of 2024 through 2029, M&D will be playing in the spring of 2020 for the ninth season.  This change is due to a major change in the landscape of youth girls lacrosse.  M&D will be participating in the National Girls Lacrosse League, playing 8 games in the season with half of them being at M&D's home fields at McDonogh School or Garrison Forest School.  There will also be playoffs and a championship for each age group.   Games will be on Saturdays and Sundays for the classes of 2024 through 2029.  

  

This is another transition year for girls' club lacrosse.  Club lacrosse will be the premier level of lacrosse for the best players in the state of Maryland.  Therefore M&D expects its players to be committed in making all spring games and spring practices.  There is a lot of confusion about what families should do about their rec programs and club lacrosse.  M&D's stance is that you are to commit to your club team first and foremost. If you desire to play for another rec program team, you can do so.  If there is a conflict with the two teams, club is to take precedence.
