The WHGL Sr TRAVEL Team is a carved out team where players will only play for the Travel Team and not play for a WHGL team. The TRAVEL Team will most likely play 12 games and three jamborees but not play in the WH All Town Jamboree at the end of the season.
SENIOR TRAVEL TEAM COMMITMENT: The Sr TRAVEL Team will meet at least four times per week. We will practice 2-3 times per week (Tues, Thursday at HALL HS and either Sat and/or Sun on the turf field at HALL, depending on the game schedule). VERY IMPORTANT: if you plan to tryout for the TRAVEL Team you are doing so with the understanding that this Team will be your priority sport/team/activity for the 10 week season. While we don't recommend playing two sports during any one season, if the player decides so then she is committing that she WILL attend at least 75% of all Sr TRAVEL Team practices and games (barring illness, family emergency, etc). This team is for committed lacrosse players that want to focus on getting better as lax players in preparation for high school. The TRAVEL team does not mean the best lacrosse players in town, rather, it is for those that want to do more with the sport. Making the team or not making the team is NO INDICATION of the player's ability to be successful in high school.
TRYOUTS FOR THE SENIOR TRAVEL TEAM: No cost for any of the tryouts. You must be registered with WHGL (registered or wait listed) to tryout. All tryouts will take place at the Courtside Sports Center in Harwington, CT, approx 15 miles from WH. There will be FOUR TRYOUT dates and you only have to attend TWO of them. You are welcome to attend all three but the evaluators MUST SEE YOU AT TWO EVENTS to rate you for the team.
Sunday, Feb 22, 10am to 12 noon, Courtside Sports Center, Harwinton, CT
Monday, Feb 23, 6pm to 8pm, Courstide Sports Center, Harwinton, CT
Sunday, March 1, 8am to 10am, Courtside Sports Center, Harwinton, CT
Thursday, March 5, 6pm to 8pm, Courtside Sports Center, Harwinton, CT
NO MORE Sunday, March 8
TRYOUT BY POSITION: We will be evaluating the players by position; goalie, attack, midfield, defense. You will sign up for one when you enter the tryout. It is ok if you are not sure what position is best for you, there will be an undecided spot and we will rate you on your ability to play any three of them (not goalie for field players). We will carry roughly 18-20 field players and 2 goalies.
EVALUATORS: We will have independent evaluators from outside of WH at our tryouts. It will be a mix of youth coaches/leaders from other towns, high school coaches and even a college coach. E
EXTRA COST FOR THE SENIOR TRAVEL TEAM: There will be an extra cost of $100 for the TRAVEL Team over and above the regular fee for WHGL.
