Tryout Guidance  

Players will be evaluated on the following and player’s preferred position will be taken into consideration. BAC reinforces Burnsville up-tempo lacrosse style. Our players are expected to be in great shape by the start of the season.

  1. Passing/Catching – strong hand/weak hand

  2. Shooting – strong hand/weak hand; shooting on the run

  3. Vision & actions with the ball

  4. Off-ball positioning

  5. Defensive positioning and footwork; need to “play fast” and have great hands

  6. Athleticism - boys should be in shape and ready to work

  7. Lacrosse IQ

  8. Attitude, leadership, willingness to learn and effort

Goalie – will be evaluated based on shot defense; reaction speed; angles/positioning; defense direction/control; clearing ability; lacrosse IQ; and attitude/effort.
