The most important order of business as I work with the Lincoln Lacrosse Board Of Directors, is to project who is planning to play this Spring. Please start by sending an email confirming your interest at email@example.com. Potential numbers impact both budgets and dues as well as team structures.
We will run two teams at the High School level. Please understand that the Lincoln High School Varsity team is a competitive program. There are no automatic advancements to Varsity. While playing time is important, it is earned through practice – both attendance and performance.
*Lincoln Lacrosse will field a Varsity and JV team for the 2020 season, each playing between 15 and 18 games depending on availability.
Team Selection Protocol: Varsity
The best players at each position regardless of class year will be placed on the Varsity Roster. However, there is no automatic promotion to the Varsity team. Seniors must earn their spot like everyone else, demonstrating leadership, character and the potential to contribute significantly to the team’s success will be rostered to the Varsity team. Seniors not rostered to the Varsity team will be cut (seniors may not play JV).
Games are played to win with the goal of making the final four. Playing time will be earned through practice-based hard work, and the demonstration of conceptual knowledge, lacrosse skills, and athleticism. Not every player will play in every game.
Team Selection Protocol: Junior Varsity
Those players demonstrating a strong work ethic, positive attitude and high potential but not rostered to the Varsity, will be rostered to the JV Team. JV is still a competitive undertaking and embraces the growth provided from that environment. Players work to develop their individual skills, tactical awareness, discipline and mental toughness in preparation for Varsity-level competition. Playing time will be awarded based on performance in practice but also with an eye to opportunities for player development.
