We'd like to say "thanks" for all of the requests for information about our tryout schedule for the 2015 Summer Season. That tells us that you are very interested in the Dawgs. It also tells us that there are a lot of clubs who are already announcing tryouts as early as this September (YIKES!). So, that being said, we thought we should keep everyone up-to-speed on how the Dawgs club works... basically when and why we do what we do.
Tryouts for Summer / Fall, 2015:
We hold our tryouts in the late Fall and again in the Spring.
Players will be competing for spots to play in tournaments in the ensuing Summer and Fall.
First Tryout: December 7th, 2014 at Dickinson College.
Second Tryout: Mid to late Spring (TBD).
It is highly advised to tryout at our first session in the late Fall. This is due to our steady increase in numbers. So basically, depending on how many players tryout in the late Fall, we may fill positions on all of the teams early, thus rendering the Spring tryout obsolete for those positions. Some clubs hold tryouts now, and try and lock you in through this Fall, next Spring and Summer. This is with hopes of securing your sons and your money for an entire year.
Club lacrosse trends change all the time, so the future may dictate our policies at some point. Until then, we want your sons to experience life and other sports in addition to lacrosse. We also want to allow cushion in the schedule so players can attend some showcases. Sometimes it requires taking a little break to let that happen. Besides, we strongly prefer NOT to interfere with the Spring school season, when players should be playing and gelling with their school teammates.
The Dawgs do not exist to lighten your checking account. We offer some of the best coaching and facilities in Central Pennsylvania. We train our players hard with hopes that they may have the opportunity to extend their play beyond high school while getting a great education at a top college or university. So far, we have a very good record of doing that, and we don't need to own your son to do it.
NOTE: 14 Dawgs from 2014 class will be playing in college this year!
