**For More Information on the Spring Season, CLICK HERE**
EVALUATIONS: We are changing our format and will be having multiple opportunities to evaluate your daughter's level of play to make sure she's on the team that will lead to the greatest level of development for her, while still having fun with her friends. This will include our fall & winter workout sessions, as well as other events we will schedule prior through February of 2022.
NO evaluations required for Clinic
We will be forming A, B and C level teams for all levels ABOVE Tyker (4-8th grade), which play in the MYLA travel league and MUST be evaluated.
**To play on an A Team, your daughter must also be interested in playing on the Summer Development Team for your daughter's grade (see more below about the Development Team)**
Tykers who want to play locally against other KPGLAX teams do NOT need to be evaluated
Tyker who wish to play in the MYLA travel league must be evaluated - we will have a B and/or an A team
**To play on the Tyker A Team, your daughter must also be interested in playing on the Summer Development Team for your daughter's grade (see more below about the Development Team)**
*All players hoping to participate in the Development Program (taking place after the Spring Season) must register for the Spring and attend Spring evaluations. The Development Program Teams (Tyker, Lightning & Thunder) take place AFTER the regular Spring season and will have separate try-outs that will be open to ALL Spring Tyker, Lightning & Thunder players.
Parents, please consider volunteering! We need team parents, coaches, assistant coaches and others for organizational roles (Board members, task committees, etc.). To give your daughters an amazing lacrosse experience, we need the whole lacrosse community involved, which includes NEW PARENTS to jump in and play a role in our continued success. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll find a role for you that will feel like "play" not another "job" - I promise

Kell y Post Girls Lacrosse Development Program - 2026, 2027, 2028, 2029, 2030 and 2031/2032 (Tyker)
KELLY POST GIRLS LACROSSE will continue and ENHANCE our Developmental Program Teams for the 2021-22 lacrosse season!
Our goal is to give our Kelly Post players an alternative to the multitude of club programs that now exist and work to keep the costs in a more affordable range for the participants while providing a higher level of training than found in a lot of local clubs!
This will be a developmental team with additional costs. There is no cost to try out.
2028 & 2029 Teams Include:
*Fall and winter Training sessions oriented to specific skillsets for all players at S3 Sports Center, with Rob Slade (Owner of S3) and Kevin Atkinson (Former Kelly Post coach and long-time Girls’ High School and Club Coach) which will focus on conditioning, agility, stick skills & team concepts.
*1-2 Pre-Season Scrimmages with Refs
*Pre-Season Annual Catonsville Classic Tournament in March
*Spring Season in the MYLA League
*2-3 Tournaments in summer
Tyker Team Includes:
* Fall and Winter sessions at S3 Sports Center, with Rob Slade (Owner of S3) and Kevin Atkinson (Former Kelly Post coach and long-time Girls’ High School and Club Coach), which will focus on conditioning, agility, stick skills & team concepts.
*Pre-Season Annual Catonsville Classic Tournament in March
*Spring Season in the MYLA League - This is a travel league, and is different from our In-House Rec League. Players will not play in the In-House Rec Tyker League.
*1-2 Tournaments in summer
With summer vacations & events, we totally understand that summer schedules are crazy. Please, if your child is unable to attend the tryouts please contact Dave Briglio at email@example.com.
There is no cost to tryout. If your daughter is asked to join the team the additional cost will range from $450-$550 for the team costs and $200-$225 for the Training Sessions. This includes the normal spring season registration fee.
All tryouts will be open to all players and we will select the best players for each team. Participation in a Kelly Post Developmental team will allow players to get all the benefits of being in a club program at a significantly lower cost.
Wherever possible, we will add older teams if interest exists.
For those who prefer traditional rec lacrosse, Kelly Post is continuing to enhance those programs as well. Tryouts for our rec teams will take place in October. Those who are not chosen for a developmental team will be placed on rec teams. Everyone will have a chance to play through our program. Rec tryouts will take place in October.
If you know any past players or friends who would be interested in trying-out, please pass this email along!!
Coaching at Kelly Post is a fun and exciting way to be a part of your daughter's life, give back to the program, and bring your passion for the game to a younger generation. If you have the desire to volunteer to be a part of our coaching staff, please contact Dave Briglio at firstname.lastname@example.org.
**We have an excellent coaching development program starting for the 2020 season, so regardless of your coaching experience (including ZERO), you'll have fund and help our girls play the RIGHT way!
SPECIAL NOTE: Per Baltimore County policy, all coaches and volunteers must have been cleared through the background checks through their rec council.
If you are interested in volunteering for Kelly Post Lacrosse in any capacity, please click on the voluteer option on the menu bar to the left and apply online prior to the season. THANK YOU!
