Congratulations and Next Steps - Dated 4/8/2016

By Cory Powell, 04/08/16, 6:30PM CDT


My son made a team, now what?

Congratulations to all of the kids who went through tryouts out for the Eagan High School Lacrosse teams. We know how hard the kids have been working to get prepared for the season based on comments passed along from Ted Sperides at 6x6 Lacrosse as well as Dr Luke at SSTAR. Coaches too have mentioned how well prepared this class of kids have been coming into Tryouts. It takes a lot of courage to try out for High School teams.


Next Steps: Cory Powell did a really nice job laying out next steps for you earlier this week. That email can be viewed at the following:

9/10 PLAYERS: Please verify your son's US Lacrosse number is valid through the entire season by visiting and then forward their US Lacrosse number to Lois Davis, The 9/10 Team is insured through US Lacrosse and a valid membership good through the entire season is needed in order for your son to play on the 9/10 Team.
