Tryout Candidates Boys Summer (2020, 2021, 2022, 2023 Teams)
To All Tryout Candidates:
We first want to thank you all for being part of a record number of tryout participants in the boy’s program this fall. We realize that the landscape of the club programming has changed dramatically since our inception and we are cognizant of your desire to participate in a top program and for a top level team.
We have been finalizing our rosters for the top teams in each grad year and have worked hard to build competitive, balanced teams in each level. We are still in the process of receiving commitments and therefore want you all to know that many of the rosters are not complete and that we plan to have call backs and/or a second round of tryouts for the open spots. If you have NOT been contacted by phone or email about making the 2020, 2021, 2022, 2023 Summer team it means at this point we would like to see you again at a call back if you are still interested in playing for the Chargers.
Second Round of Tryouts
It is our intention to utilize the second round of tryouts to finish building the most competitive teams we can in the 2020-2023 grad years and also gauge the interest in building second teams in certain grad year groups. We still have the original evaluations from our first selection process, but this is an opportunity to showcase again, while also inviting players who did not tryout with Chargers the first time. We believe this will provide us with the most talented group of players still available and interested, making the entire team a higher level group. In addition we will also offering a 3 week Lightening “House” League & Clinics available to any player that is interested. Please see below.
When and Where
Two separate tryouts will be held for the 2022 and 2023 Teams on Saturday, November 29th and December 6th at Sono Field House from 3:30-5:00PM. Tryouts for the 2020 and 2021 teams will be held on the same days, but from 5:00-6:30PM at Sono Field House. If you are a registered player who paid and tried out the first time, there is no additional charge for these second round tryouts, but we would expect you to attend at least one. Those trying out for the first time must go online and register and pay the $75 tryout fee.

The founder-owner of the Philadelphia based Dukes Lacrosse Club, Ebe Helm, whose club has grown to be the most
sought after club team by college coaches and by event organizers, is recognized by leading clubs throughout the
nation to be the gold standard in delivering a plethora of top players to college programs stated,
"My single most important reason for being part of this high quality alliance is that I am first and foremost
about offering my Dukes players the best opportunities . With so many new events and new clubs emerging every week, there is simply a tremendous amount of choices but these are slowly being diluted in quality and I fully intend to remain focused on trying to attend and/or create events that offer the Dukes players the best opportunities to showcase their abilities while keeping in mind the economic burden some of these have placed on families."
