2027 Players:  We believe 4th grade is awfully young for players to begin their club sports journey.  That said, there are a few who may be ready.  We will accept 4th graders on our 5th grade team.  Players will need to be able to focus for 90 minutes, contribute to drills without distracting others and be able to run up and down the full field.  This is a huge adjustment for the kids and one they make quite well but its also very helpful to have older kids providing a shell structure.  This is why a blended team is so beneficial.  The younger ones learn with the “bigger girls” and then go on to form the nucleus of the team the following year.  If our numbers are large we’ll consider a pure 2027 team but experience has shown blended teams provide better learning environment.

FAQ:

 

 

Why are the coaches not listed for the youngest teams?

·      We wont know the personality of the team but once we do, we will match experienced staff with newer members to best suit the needs of the team.  Often times there is a super qualified parent who would make a dynamic Head Coach.  But given the obvious conflict of interest we place non-parent coaches to run the substitution box during games.  We’ve found this to be the best long-range culture for a happy team.

 

Why do I need a US Lacrosse Membership if I am just trying out? 

·      USL provides insurance for its members for all club events.  Tournaments require it.  So we decided to slash tryout fees in half but ask for the membership now so it’s not an added expense/hassle later.

 

Do I stand a chance if I have not been on an Integrity team in the past?

·      Yes!  We do have a long tradition of being very loyal to our present players but its also important for the kids to know they must continue to earn their spot.  Players are expected to have regular practice attendance, put in some time on their own and be willing to play within the team’s strategic sets.  Every year there is on average a 20% player turnover rate.  That said, club jumping b/c the grass seems greener is not something we recommend regardless of what side of the fence you’re presently standing.  If you like what you’re hearing give us a try!

 

What makes Integrity any different?

·      We are all about developing players as a total athlete.  That means athletically, nutritionally, mentally and physically.  Look for deep discounts this year from our partnership with Peak Custom Fitness solutions to get your daughter in front of cutting edge trainers, nutritionists and mental skills coaches.  Let’s face it……as your daughter’s age increases, her “willingness to hear” all the great parenting tips you’re lovingly dispensing decreases.  Its not your fault.  As the parent you’re wrong. As the estrogen increases so does the reticence to see you as an ally!  Couple that with the fact today’s youth sports system is broken.  We’re trying to change that.  Put the athlete first.  We’ll build sound movement patterns, and the strength, balance and core control to limit injuries as they grow.  Add in mental skills coaching to help them perform at their best while handling the pressures of a fast paced recruiting environment and the tools to make sound nutritional decisions when they’re alone in the lunchroom surrounded by all sorts of bad choices.

 

What is this rolling admission?

·      Having been doing this for 15 years, we know how emotional the whole tryout thing can be.  This is one of the most broken pieces of the youth sports circus.  This year, returning players will not have a tryout fee.  For newbies, that fee will be minimal, to cover turf costs and stipends for the college player evaluators.  We are interested in players who get us and want to be a part of our program.  We don’t want you to feel as if you have to drag your daughter all over AA County from one site to another-often times 2 trials in the same overheated day! 

·      This is why our 2019 & 2020 teams are so strong.  They were populated with super grounded families who promoted a team environment-parents who like each other, trusted the coaching, kids who wanted to hang out outside of school and who didn’t have one eye on some other team who may have had more wins or tournament tees.  Experiencing loss is part of the learning process.  How do kids learn from adversity if we keep clearing out players?  Those kids/parents bought into the process, commit to the practice schedule and now play at the highest levels!  Their combined Summer record of 17-1 was in 5 Star pools.

My kids play multiple sports and we’re not willing to give that up!

·      Great!  We want that too!  We are 100% forgiving of fall and winter sports taking precedence in those seasons.  But since the bulk of the learning happens during spring league preparation we expect club lax to be the highest priority March-July.  Invariably there will be conflicts, just communicate with your Head Coach way in advance and there is nothing that cannot be compromised. 

What do my fees get me?

·      Uniform, 2 fall tournaments, Indoor practice time in February and March, 4 summer tournaments, all coaching and recruiting assistance.   Indoor courts run about $200/hour and that soaks up pretty quickly but we want to be sure we’re getting in touches leading into Premier League.
