What are the expectations at tryouts?
We participate in highly competitive select lacrosse events, so our goal is to fill our teams with players who demonstrate strong fundamentals, the ability to stay focused during instruction, and show strong potential and good athletic ability.  We look for players who demonstrate above-average skills in the following categories:

  • Attitude On and Off the Field
  • Stickwork
  • Footwork / Speed
  • Lacrosse IQ
  • Positioning-Specific Skills
  • Coachability 
  • Work Ethic
  • Commitment

Are there other tryout opportunities if we are not available to make the scheduled tryouts?  
Cannons Select Lacrosse uses rolling evaluations. Players get injured or sometimes move out of the area during the year.  Our goal is to put the best team possible on the field and we continue to evaluate players as long as space is available on a team.  If you missed our tryout and would like to be considered for a Cannons team, please contact us ASAP at

How many teams will each age group field this upcoming season?
The goal of Cannons Select Lacrosse is to field one team per graduation year.  If the talent pool at our tryouts suggests we can field a second team at a graduation year and we are confident we can offer quality coaching for that team, we will consider a second team at a graduation year.  Final teams offered and breakdowns are determined after evaluations and are based on the quality of talent at our evaluations.  We will only field teams if we feel we have the talent to be competitive at the Select Lacrosse level. 

How many players are on a roster?
Rosters are flexible depending on the makeup of the team.

Do uniforms change each year?
Understanding the expense of the sport of lacrosse, we generally use a two-year uniform cycle. Jersey number priority is given to returning players.

What is the practice schedule?
Practices and Skill Sessions vary for each season and each age group. 

What about Cannons Summer Lacrosse?
Cannons teams play in summer tournaments which are announced to families and posted on the Cannons website at the start of each season.
