The Meadowcreek High School Men’s Lacrosse Team provides a tough and rigorous athletic experience to develop favorable habits and attitudes in student athletes to prepare them for post high school academic careers and adult life. A student who elects to participate in the Meadowcreek Men’s Lacrosse Program is voluntarily making a choice to commit to a program of excellence reflecting core values including but not limited to, leadership, sportsmanship, courage, and selflessness. Meadowcreek Lacrosse has established itself as a premiere athletic program at Meadowcreek High School obtaining and holding high standards both athletically and academically. It is a privilege to participate in the lacrosse program and this privilege is extended to all male students in grades 9-12 who meet the academic and athletic requirements for the sport. It is expected that all athletes will meet better than minimum standards of conduct in both athletics and academics and follow all team rules in accordance with GCPS, GHSA, and Meadowcreek High School.

Understand your athlete

*Know that every player’s knowledge of the game and ability is at a different level

*Be aware of an athlete’s strength’s in order to improve upon their weaknesses

State corrections in the positive

*Say “do this” not “don’t do that”

*Stop athletes immediately, in practice or games to give individual support/ strategies

Always have a goal to accomplish

Never forget the term, “Student/athlete”

*Remember they are kids not professionals; Make practices/ games fun

Gather parent and community support

Tryouts:

 

Lacrosse is a Spring sport that lasts from January through May. Tryouts will be conducted in late January and potential players should arrive in excellent shape with a basic knowledge of the skill sets needed to play the sport. Meadowcreek Lacrosse prides itself on having high standards of fitness and potential players should concentrate on running up to five miles, lifting weights and participating in Crossfit/Military style fitness routines as well as having excellent agility/sprint skills. Players need to have a current 2016-17 physical/insurance on file and be academically eligible to participate in sports as outlined by GHSA and Meadowcreek High School.
