Tryout Info (Burlington Minor Lacrosse)

PrintTryout Info

Tryout Information 

  • All Rep Box tryouts will take place April 8-18, 2024, at Aldershot Arena. 

  • Each team will have 4 sessions over the tryout period, which may include weekdays and weekends.

  • Tryout schedules for each team will be posted to the team calendar. Please use the Team Sites menu to navigate to the appropriate calendar.

  • Participants can register HERE for tryouts.


  • Please arrive 15 mins in advance of your tryout time.

  • Due to insurance purposes, you must be registered with the BMLA. Please click HERE to register.

  • There will be a list of those who have registered.

  • Players will be given a pinny for identification.

  • Conflicts must be declared in advance to the VP Rep Box. If you will not be able to attend one of the scheduled tryout times, please advise in advance. Players will evaluate based upon performance - the more the coaches see you, the better the evaluation. If coaches know you will not be available on a specific day, they will focus on the player when they are present.

  • The number of teams selected in each age group will depend upon the number of players trying out. This will be determined during the tryout period.

  • Water will not be supplied - please bring your own.


Tryout Structure

  • Coaches, possibly from another age group, or volunteers from the Board will run drills.

  • The BMLA discourages selection of assistant coaches who have players trying out for the team until after they have been selected for a team.

  • The head coach can make selections after the first tryout for their team.

  • Once selected, players will not need to return to tryouts. 

  • Players who do not attend tryouts are ineligible to be selected for a team. (Board approval can override this rule based on special circumstances).

  • Players who do not make a Rep team will have a spot on a House League team and have appropriate fees refunded.

  • Using an Affiliate Player on a Rep team will be strongly encouraged by the BMLA.  Those players will be chosen by coaches from our House League program and they will have the opportunity to practice and possibly play on a Rep team if a rostered player is absent. Additional fees will apply.


  • Coaches will be emailing players to advise if they have been selected.

  • Players not selected will also receive an email after the last tryout in that age group.

  • If a player is not selected, please review what night they can report to their House League coach.



All Burlington Residents are required to play for Burlington. If Burlington is unable to field a team at any level, releases will be given only to players who have registered and attended at least 1 tryout.

Players who are not registered and who have not attended a tryout will be deemed to have no interest in Rep Box lacrosse and will not be given a release.
