Assessments will be only necessary if there are enough players to field two 7/8th grade (U14/15) teams.
ASSESSMENT DATES: Players are strongly encouraged to attend both sessions. This will provide players the best opportunity to impress evaluators.
Date, time, and location TBD.
Boulder Valley Girls Lacrosse will organize assessments for our top 7th/ 8th grade spring team. This team will be led by coaches with significant lacrosse coaching and playing experience.
This team will be known as BVGL 7th/8th Gold.
BVGL Gold teams are expected to play in the Gold division of the Colorado Girls Lacrosse Association (CGLA). Divisions are Gold (advanced) and Silver (intermediate/developmental). No cuts will be made.
Teams will be determined on the basis of assessments, and input from current and previous coaches. Multiple evaluators will consider athletic ability, overall commitment to lacrosse and the team, work ethic, and positive attitude when selecting players.
Every7th/8th player will be given an equal opportunity to participate on a BVGL Gold team but positions must be earned and never granted. There are no guarantees of playing time on Gold teams.
No sixth graders will be allowed to play up unless all seventh & eighth graders have been assigned a team. The sixth grader must be age appropriate - 12 years of age by 9/1/2000.
Final responsibility for team selection rests with BVGL Director Annie Nicholson.
