Welcome to the 2018 JTAA Lacrosse season!
Congratulations on having your child belong to a youth rec lacrosse program with a culture of excellence that is second to none in Florida.
The first regular season games for all will be on February 17, 2018 with the season ending on April 21, 2018.
FiddleStix will have a different season start and finish and you will be contacted by the FiddleStix Director for more details.
Girls Players: Your first Sunday clinic will be 1/14/18 at Lighthouse Park from 1000am to 1130am. Your first practices are tentatively scheduled to start 1/31/18. Your coach will notify you of the exact start date.
Boys Players: Our boys team teams are selected based on an evaluation and draft system, where players' skills are considered in order to create teams of equal strengths. Players will be evaluated on the first day of the season on Sunday 1/28/18. After that, we will put teams together as fairly and as balanced as possible. To be fair to all players and coaches, those players not at evals on 1/28/18 will be put on teams by a random hat pick. JTAA Lacrosse is a recreational program and does not believe in the 'stacked' teams or 'A' and 'B' teams philosophy.
Both boys and girls teams will have 2 scheduled practices per week. Games are held on Saturdays at JCP or on the road. Boys teams will have up to 3 weeknight games during the season at JCP in addition to normal weeknight practices. The coaches for the girl's teams will send out at a separate email about other events besides the normal Saturday games.
