Royals Lacrosse - Program Info and Try-out schedule
Royal Lacrosse Boys OPEN 2015/2016 Program Tryouts
Tryouts for the 2015/2016PROGRAM YEAR are being held for players in Graduation Classes 2025-2016 (Grades 3-12). Tryouts are for players looking to be considered for any of the our seasons. (Fall, Winter & Spring/Summer). The tryout fee covers two rounds of tryouts and a reversible Royal branded pinnie. Players are NOT required to attend both tryout dates but it is strongly encouraged. Whether you are looking to participate in just one season or all the seasons, you must attend these tryouts to be considered.
PLEASE NOTE: We believe strongly that athletes should play more than one sport; our year round program is strategically organized so as NOT to conflict with Fall, Winter & Spring sports. We believe that chemistry and unity is the ultimate recipe to success in any sport. Players have the best chance of making the team if the are open to participating in more than one season.
FALL 2015 (Graduation Classed 2024-2016)
(The cost will be tiered by grade ranging from $695 - $1095)
Each team will be lead by two professional coaches. The Royal Lacrosse staff is comprised of some of the areas best & most passionate high school coaches, former & current professional or college players.
Practices are scheduled once a week strategically so as NOT to interfere with High School Sports & Youth sports. The youth practices are on Saturday mornings and the High School practices are on Sunday evenings. Practices are held at either St. Marks School in Southborough or Acton-Boxborough depending on which team you are on.
All teams will attend (3) LOCAL ONE day tournaments in late October and early November. (Fall sports for the youth are usually over by this time)
WINTER 2015-2016 (Grad. Class 2025-2016)
During the winter we will hold Team Practices, Skills & Drills Clinics, Positional Clinics, Speed & Condition Clinics, 1on1 training and the possibility for indoor league teams & indoor tournaments. The clinics are held at St. Mark's School & The Edge in Bedford. The tournaments are all local to New England and are optional.
SPRING 2016 (Grad. Classes 2025-2017)
We believe STRONGLY that during the Spring our lacrosse players should focus first on their town & high school teams. However, we will hold a la carte skills & positional clinics, 1on1 training and other events that DO NOT conflict with town and high school schedules. We help local youth programs develop their programs by running various positional clinics & practices as needed.
SUMMER 2016 (Grad. Classes 2025-2017)

The A-B Youth Lacrosse Program is sponsoring its 3nd annual summer youth lacrosse clinic from July 6th – 10th.
The camp is for grades 1 – 7 (just completed). Groups will be broken out by grade and skill level.
This is a great opportunity for players to continue to improve on basic techniques such as cradling, catching/throwing, scooping, basic dodges as well as game fundamentals. In addition to technical drills, the clinic will have fun games, skills contests and live scrimmages. Older ages will start learning game situations such as fast breaks and defensive positioning.
