Fall Tryout Information
UC Mavericks are proud to announce tryouts for the upcoming 2019 Fall and 2021 Summer Season. Mavericks lacrosse is a graduation year program. We will field teams in the 2023, 2022 & 2021 graduation years talent permitting. Our goal is to continue to build on the success of the past 11 seasons by identifying talented athletes that are passionate about lacrosse and have the drive and dedication to invest themselves fully in becoming a better lacrosse player, teammate and young man. We place high expectations on our players, coaches and families that they respect our coaching philosophy and high standards for personal conduct.
We are seeking local talented athletes that are committed to the game of lacrosse. Our expectations and evaluations put a high level of importance on stick work, lacrosse IQ, athleticism, attitude and effort. Mavericks Lacrosse competes with the best clubs in the nation in local recruiting tournaments. We are looking for players committed to personal & athletic excellence. Everyone is welcome but expect a competitive and challenging atmosphere.
Mavericks Club Focus
1. College exposure by graduation year
2. Fundamental improvement
3. Extra lacrosse
Why only focus on above?
Unsuccessful lacrosse teams lack athletes, stick skills, lacrosse IQ, and strength. The Mavericks program gives you 8 hours in the fall, 24 hours in the winter, and 9 hours in the summer which totals 41 hours of extra lacrosse. An average high school lacrosse season has about 132 hours of practice. Your high school coach and your own work ethic is truly responsible for your lacrosse development. The Mavericks program is extra lacrosse and exposure. Simply put we don't have them players long enough to focus on anything else but fundamentals, which is the most important part of any sport.
