Timberwolves Travel Teams
Timberwolves Players and Parents,
For the last 2 years, the Timberwolves have had lacrosse teams in post season tournament play; from Milwaukee to Vernon Hills to Louisville, KY. Due to the outstanding response and success we had, the Timberwolves are happy to announce that we will be selecting one team at each level of U11, U13, and U15 to play in tournaments around the region. We are currently in the process of selecting which tournaments we will be attending this upcoming year.
Our travel teams will be made up of the best players from all Timberwolves teams at each age level. Being selected to the Timberwolves Travel Team gives you the benefit of competing against some of the top lacrosse players in the Region. This is a big commitment beyond the spring season; it may include an additional day of practice during most of May and June, and then three practices a week once the spring lacrosse season ends. Please remember that this is in addition to the spring season, and that everyone’s normal spring team will take precedence over any travel team practice until the end of the spring season.
Tournaments are held on weekends and will require travel for the players and family. We are asking that each player commit to all the tournaments.
We will be holding OPEN tryouts for ALL U09, U11, U13, and U15 players. During these tryouts coaches will be looking to form one team at each age level. Coaches will be evaluating basic lacrosse skills, athletic abilities, teamwork, and position requirements. While we understand you may have commitments on either of these tryout dates, it is strongly recommended that you attend both evaluation sessions. Try out dates have yet to be determined.
Due to the responses in our year end survey we are currently looking in to the option of having outside coaching staff for our Tournament Teams. The coaches fees will be split among the tournament team players. So as of now we do not have an accurate fee for the tournament team. Last years fee was $200, and we are striving to keep this years fee as affordable as possible. The fee will cover the entrance cost and other additional fees for each of the tournaments.
Each player will be responsible for travel, lodging, and food for the three tournaments. Lodging will only be required for two of the events (only one if you choose to commute to Milwaukee). We have reserved limited blocks of rooms at a discounted cost to make things convenient.
