Commitment and Expectations
All Evergreen Travel Athletes and Families are held to a very high standard. All members and players must sign the Evergreen Code of Conduct prior to their participation onto the travel team.
As a member of our club, we expect you to attend all scheduled team practices, training sessions and tournament/scrimmages. We also expect a high level of commitment to improving yourself as a player and an athlete outside of the scheduled practice and training time as well.

Team and Roster Information
The Evergreen Lacrosse Club offers teams at each age level, age groups from 2027-2018. This corresponds to grades 3rd through 12th grade for the 2017-2018 school year. You must attend a Evergreen Lacrosse Evaluation or receive a personal invite by a member of the coaching staff.
Each age group will vary in size and will practice together at all training sessions with multiple coaches per age group. Each age group will have approximately 40-50 players. Rosters are selected by each respective coach at least a week before a tournament. Each roster will have 20-25 players and every player will participate in at least 3 Summer Tournaments and 2 Fall Tournaments. If you can not attend a tournament you are selected for, we will do our best to add you to another tournament.
Having a larger player pool for each age division allows practices and training sessions to be filled with high-level athletes who can push each other to become the best that they can be and allow for full-field scenarios such as rides, clears, man-up/man-down and much more. It also adds a large level of competition throughout the year which we believe is one of the key characteristics (competitiveness) to breed successful players and individuals.
Each player is offered a roster spot in a minimum of 2 Fall Tournaments and 3 Summer Tournaments each year. Some teams will participate in the Howard County (HoCo) Spring League or the Potomac Lacrosse League (PLL) based on coaches evaluation of the team after the Fall & Winter seasons; this will be handled on a case-by-case basis.
For athletes who are not travel-ready, we offer the Evergreen Evolution Program which is a lower-cost, training-only program for players in that age group looking to receive high level of instruction to prepare them for the travel level.
