Player evaluations are currently underway for rising 2nd – 7th grade boys looking to join an Olde English travel team for the 2017-18 season. A limited number of open positions are currently available on the 2023, 2024, 2025, 2026 & 2027/28 teams with some rosters already close to full.
Olde English is a 9-month travel program that provides a balanced, player experience from the late fall through summer seasons. The 2017-18 season will kick off in late October with a focus on refreshing each player’s field skills and will carry into December with Sunday afternoon workouts and 1-2 possible fall tournaments. Through the winter, we move indoors with weekly workouts focused on individual skill development and pushing players to develop areas beyond their natural strengths.
In March we will return to the outdoor game with all teams practicing two nights per week and most age groups playing in a Philadelphia-based travel, spring league. In addition, we anticipate 1-2 spring tournaments between March and May.
The summer season officially kicks off Memorial Day weekend and will be busy for all age groups with 5 tournaments, program and team social events and a program wide community service project (lacrosse-centered).
Olde English is very much a family program where everyone makes a collective investment in the development of our players – this includes the coaches, the parents and the players themselves. Our focus is on the long-term development of players that will prepare them to be successful as they progress toward the high school game and beyond. That means we are looking for players and their families looking to make a commitment to a single travel lacrosse program and a commitment to seeing their team be successful as much as their individual success.
Open positions will be filled on a rolling basis and individual team tryouts will be closed once a roster is complete.
In addition, Olde English will be hosting two late summer open practices to fill any remaining unfilled positions on Sunday, August 20th and Sunday August 27th. Details are below.
