This coming lacrosse season Dedham Youth Lacrosse and Norwood youth lacrosse are going to be offering our U13 and U15 players the opportunity to try out for our own select teams.  The teams will be called DedWood and most of our games will be played on Friday nights, but it is possible we will have a couple Saturday games.  This is a “play to win league” meaning there is a play off and a trophy at the end of the year.  It also means playing time is based on productivity.  Players that come to practice and are productive on the field will get more playing time.   In order to try out for the team you must be on a town “classic team”.  This team is not intended to replace your classic town team; it is in addition to it.  So your son would be committing himself to play (in total between town and select) 2 games a week along with 2-3 practices a week.   This team also comes with additional $150 cost to pay for coaches, uniforms, fields, and league expense.  Each team will have 3 coaches, one Dedham coach, one Norwood coach, and one hired coach.  The hired coach will be the head coach.  He will make all decisions on playing time.

Tryouts for U15 will be February 14th U13 tryouts will be on February 15th.  Tryouts will be held at Compete indoor sports 576 Pleasant St. Norwood.  Tryouts will start at 5pm sharp and will end at 6pm.  Please be ready to play at 5pm sharp.  If your son can not attend our tryout or will be late please contact us 48 hours prior to the tryout.  If your son is not ready to play at 5pm sharp we will take that into consideration when choosing our team.  We will select 20 players per team.  We are going to select the 20 best players, not 10 Dedham kids and 10 Norwood kids.  Our practice schedule has not been determined.  Every player should plan to commit to a minimum of 2 practices a week, one town practice and one select practice.  You will also be committing to 2 games per week, one select game on Fridays and one town game on Sunday.  Select lacrosse is for kids committed to lacrosse.
