2018 Westside Fall Ball
by posted 08/14/2018

West Side Fall Ball Try Outs are just over a week away!  Join us for a fun and competitive Fall Lacrosse Season.  We are expecting to have 3 youth teams (U-10, U-12, U-14) and 2 High School (JV-9th & 10th, Varsity-11th & 12th) teams this fall.  We will be taking a minimum of 14 players per team and a max roster of 20 and be following the same age guidelines as summer lacrosse except at the U-14 division.  Any player currently in High School must try out and play at the High School level.  West Side is also excited to announce that we will be adding our SESSIONS to our fall training schedule. 


Tournaments:  West Side will be attending 2 local fall tournaments in 2018.
Cost: $175 per tournament or $325 for both. Includes 2 tournaments, 6 team practices, 5 SESSIONS and Fall Uniforms.
Practices:  All practices and SESSIONS will be held on the outdoor fields at The Soccer Stop in Holland
  • Team Practices will be held on Sunday afternoons beginning Sept 9th.  Times TBA.
  • SESSIONS will be Monday nights 5:30-7:00 beginning Sept 10th
    • SESSIONS are 90 minute practices by position designed to break down different aspects of that position including Shooting, Defense, Attack, Faceoffs and Goalie SESSIONS are taught by players and coaches who have first hand experience in those specific positions.  The idea is to focus on individual positions so that players may bring the skills learned to team practices so they may spend more time on team oriented concepts and drills.  
Try Outs: 
  • Sunday, Aug 19th @ Soccer Stop in Holland (outdoor fields)
    • Youth- U-10, U-12, U-14 1:00-2:30
    • High School- Varsity, JV 2:30-4:00
  • Only $5.00 to try out! 
  • Open to all West Michigan Lacrosse players
Register for try outs on the link below.  Fall ball is open to all West Michigan Lacrosse players so tell your team mates and friends.  All players must try out to participate regardless of summer participation.   If you can not make the try out please contact me for alternatives.  http://www.westsidemilax.com/west-side-fall-ball  Teams will be announced a few days after try outs.  Coach Greer will be coaching all team practices and SESSIONS along with other West Side Coaches and players from Hope College.
Fall ball is a great opportunity to keep improving in the offseason and get a little extra coaching and playtime for those players who want it.  The time commitment in minimal with room to add practices and games and it allows our athletes to participate in multiple sports in the fall if they want to.  Both tournaments are local and affordable and we look forward to a competitive fall season.  Please pass this email along to your coaches, friends and team email chains.  Contact me anytime if you have any questions at all.  I hope you are all having a great summer.   Thanks and see you soon.


Have Fun. Improve. Compete.
