Team Placement

MYL is dedicated to fostering the development of every players player and their enjoyment of the sport by providing an environment with teammates and opponents of nearly equal skills. Therefore, all registered players are strongly encouraged to attend at least one player evaluation. Details on evaluations will be sent out to all players  registered for the spring season. "A" Team tryouts will be held Saturday December 10th for 10U and 12U with 14U "A" tryouts December 11th. Followed by "B" Team evaluations in January. All players in all age-groups are required to attend the team placement evaluations or Tryouts so we can determine player’s ability and placement on the appropriate level team.



Practices for all teams will begin in early March, after tryouts and player evaluations are completed. Teams will have practices 2 days per week at a local McLean field. Practices are led by Perfect Performance professional coaches. Practice schedules should be available by late February.


Game Schedule 

Boys games are usually played on Saturdays. Due to scheduling/field availability, games could be either day. Home games will be played at McLean High School, and away games will be played at various fields in Northern Virginia. 

Games begin the weekend of March 25th/26th and will run through May 20th/21st

No games will be played on Easter Weekend, April 8/9


All boys need: Stick, helmet, shoulder pads, elbow pads, gloves, rib pads optional, mouthguard, protective cup, decent football/lacrosse cleats.



“A” Team Commitment 
Players who want to be considered for an MYL “A" level team are required to attend at least one tryout.  
MYL “A” Teams are for the more serious and experienced player, who wants to compete at a high level against similar competition.  MYL “A” Teams look to continue developing players while competing with the best NVYLL Teams. 

Our team success will be in large part directly related to how much we can play together as a team.  It is important that you make lacrosse a priority and attend as many practices before and during the season.  We encourage and support them playing other sports and activities, but we do expect a high level of commitment to this team.  If lacrosse is going to always be secondary to soccer or another activity, that's absolutely fine, but the top “B” team may be a better fit (it's less of a commitment).  Players are expected to show up to practice and games ready to play, listen, and work hard!  


“B” Team Commitment 
Any MYL player that is not placed on an MYL “A” team will be placed on an MYL “B” team.  Depending on number of boys registered, we may have multiple MYL “B” teams in which case they will be divided based on skill and ability (i.e. Upper B, Lower B, etc) and they will play in divisions with teams of comparable levels. MYL “B” Teams are typically highly competitive teams based on the growth of MYL and the depth of our player pool.  MYL “B” teams are a great opportunity for far greater playing time and touches throughout the season, which will give all of the boys a better opportunity to grow and mature their games and put them in the best position to take the next step in lacrosse!  

MYL will hold a separate or additional “B” Team-only assessment following tryouts in Febraury, to best divide and place players on teams.  


Club Team Conflicts 

We recognize that many MYL players play both travel club lacrosse and rec league. This is great, and we are proud of the pool of lacrosse players we have worked so hard to develop!  That being said, some club players may have significant commitments throughout the rec season and at the end, during playoffs.  We are aware of these circumstances and while we are hopeful and expect to be able to manage most of these conflicts throughout the season, there may be times where conflicts are unavoidable.  

For our MYL teams, we do not anticipate the NVYLL adjusting its post-season playoff schedule.  As such, we expect to have an unavoidable conflict with those teams that make the NVYLL Championship weekend.  Unfortunately, given club team commitments, that could result in MYL teams having to forfeit the final championship round.  We have worked hard to find to a solution, but sadly, the potential for this outcome is real.  We want all families to be aware of this, in advance, so they can decide what is best for their family from the onset.
