2023 Boys Select Player Evaluations and Season Overview

Welcome to the 2023 Select Season! Our program managers, grade coordinators and coaches have been busy behind the scenes planning and preparing for a fun and successful Select Team season. Please make sure your son is ready on the equipment front.  Take some time to go through the bag and make sure things fit and you have a mouth guard, turf shoes fit etc...  No outside club helmets or gear allowed. Wellesley only gear for Wellesley town play. A little town pride goes a long way. Your club can afford to give you another sticker come June.

Evaluations: Select Lacrosse is for players that want MORE lacrosse. Lacrosse is their primary spring sport as they play others, they prioritize lacrosse in Spring season. Our league, offers a Division 1, 2 and 3 this year and in years past we would just keep grades together and younger grade (5th and 7th) would play Div 2 and older age specific grades (6th and 8th) would play Division 1. This was an easy way to keep teams without any evaluations but we noticed development gaps in certain players so we are taking the additional time and money to have a 3rd party evaluate all Select players over the next month to place every player on an appropriate skill level team so everyone can play more and build upon their specific foundation. This is a model we are all familiar with in Wellesley from soccer, basketball and now lacrosse. Depending on the Select evaluations teams may stay grade based or mixed.
