What grades can play in this event?

The Greater Charlotte Middle School Lacrosse Showcase is open to all players that were enrolled in 6th, 7th or 8th grade this PAST school season.

Can I play on the same team with my teammates?

Team assignment is random and based on the primary and secondary positions you register.  In most cases, when possible, we will keep you with a travel or school teammate.  Part of the showcase experience is the opportunity to play with and make new friends through the lacrosse experience.

How will playing time be divided?

Playing time will be on an equal rotation.  Everyone plays through rotation, coaches do not have the ability to deviate from this.  We want everyone to have equal chance to display skills and talents.  Goalie play will be divided equally and goalies do have the opportunity to play another position when not in goal.

Who are the coaches for the teams?

In many cases, they may be current or former college lacrosse players, middle school coaches, high school coaches or other adults that I have selected due to their commitment and support of our mission. The last thing anyone needs to worry about is who the coach will be.   They operate with pre-assigned  orders, given to them by the event directors.  If anything, they are traffic cops for the game, there for management, encouragement and leadership of each team.   Again — last thing you need to worry about, we have run these type events for over a decade in seven different sports and understand what works best for everyone.  Bring your chair, sit back, relax and enjoy watching your kid showcase with his teammates.  I can promise you the kids are having fun, we want you to have fun as well.  The kids also like it a lot better when their parents are there to support and not become part of the action or argue calls, etc 🙂     The Greater Charlotte Middle School Lacrosse Showcase is designed to be a stress-free, fun, relaxing day of lacrosse for the kids and families.
