INFORMATION FOR HIGH SCHOOL COACHES:

NOMINATION PROCESS:
Every Varsity high school coach will have the opportunity to nominate up to FOUR field players and ONE goalkeeper from their program to attend MA/RI regional tryouts. Once you have decided who in your program to nominate, you will need to send them the tryout registration link (link is at the bottom of this email).

  • Current Varsity players in grades 9-11 are eligible for nomination. In order to keep tryouts as competitive and fair as possible, we ask that coaches are selective when nominating and only send their top athletes who are ready to compete at the national stage.
  • Please encourage your athletes to register early as we can only accommodate 200 field players at tryouts this year. Please also talk to your players about the position for which they register. They will be evaluated and placed on teams according to this position.
  • Additionally, US Lacrosse continues to rule that committed players cannot be rostered below the first team in any region. Committed players who fall in the evaluation process on our second team will be bumped off of rosters to create opportunities for non-committed players. If a player commits after registering for tryouts, we ask that they make the regional chair aware of their commitment as soon as possible.

MA/RI TRYOUT SELECTOR AND TEAM COACH APPLICATIONS:
Massachusetts and Rhode Island high school coaches are asked to consider volunteering their time as a tryout selector or tournament team coach.  If you are interested and available to serve as a selector at tryouts or would like to be considered for a team coach position, please complete the applications by using the links below.  If you have any questions, please contact Anne Sheridan Quigley at annesquigley@yahoo.com.

2017 US Lacrosse Women’s National Tournament  – Schoolgirls’ Division
Massachusetts/Rhode Island Region (Formerly Lower New England)

Congratulations to all players and coaches who represented Massachusetts/Rhode Island at the 2017 US Lacrosse Women’s National Tournament!  Mass/RI 1 defeated Philly 1 15-13 to win the top flight, the Onondaga division.  Mass/RI 2 defeated Hudson Valley 12-2 to capture the Seneca division championship.  Mass/RI 3 defeated Mass/RI 4 8-7 to take home the Mohawk division championship!

NEW HAVEN, Conn. — With the lacrosse world focused on New England this weekend for the NCAA Men’s and Women’s Lacrosse Championships, it was only fitting that a New England contingent stole the show at the US Lacrosse Women’s National Tournament.

The Massachusetts/Rhode Island teams won three of the eight flights at the tournament, including the top flight, with Massachusetts/Rhode Island pulling away late to beat Philadelphia 15-13 in the Onondoga Division to win the Val Walchak Trophy. It was the first championship for a New England team in the event since Kenzie Kent (Boston College) and Maeve McMahon (Harvard) led Lower New England to the Onondaga title in 2012.  Click here to read more.
