2019 Team Evaluations and Expectations.


In 2019 we expect to have an "A" and a "B" team at the 14U level. At the 12U level, we will probably have two balanced "B" teams. Both of these levels will go through a player evaluation process. We will be using paid outside evaluators who work for another lacrosse organization. Parents, Board Members and Coaches will NOT participate in evaluations. The only exceptions are for volunteers helping at evaluations for groups which they do not have players in that age. Evaluations will be held the week of April 8th in the Hayes Arena.


Evaluation Process:


  • Cost is $20.00 payable upon check in (cash or check, payable to your "home" assiciation).

  • Jersey will be provided

  • Sign in 15 minutes prior to start of scheduled time (confirm position and jersey #)

  • Have equipment on and be ready to play at the designated time.

  • Good luck and have fun!

  • Players will be notified of A-team selection by email within 7 days of the tryout.

  • Players selected for "A" level team will be billed an additional $50.00 upon assignment to the team (due to higher tournament and turf time costs).

  • Players who miss any evaluations will be assigned to the "B" team.

  • Players who choose not to participate in evaluations will automatically be assigned to the "B" team.

Feedback: All players will have the option to ask for feedback from evaluation professionals.


Evaluation Guidance for Players  

Players may be evaluated on any or all of the following considerations. A player’s preferred position will be taken into consideration. BAC reinforces Burnsville up-tempo lacrosse style. Our players are expected to be in great shape by the start of the season.

  1. Passing/Catching – strong hand/weak hand

  2. Shooting – strong hand/weak hand; shooting on the run

  3. Vision & actions with the ball

  4. Off-ball positioning

  5. Defensive positioning and footwork; need to “play fast” and have great hands

  6. Athleticism - boys should be in shape and ready to work

  7. Lacrosse IQ

  8. Attitude, leadership, willingness to learn

  9. Goalie – will be evaluated based on shot defense; reaction speed; angles/positioning; defense direction/control; clearing ability; lacrosse IQ; and attitude/effort.

  10. Your team assignment is not your destiny! The most important thing is for a player to be placed in a team which best suits their ability and skill level for this season. Players develop at different times. All players develop best at the appropriate challenge and skill level.
