KC Blue Lion reorganize travel program
by posted 08/12/2014
 

With the start of the 2014/2015 school year fast approaching, KC Blue Lion Lacrosse is excited to announce the redesigned structure of our competitive travel lacrosse program.  Blue Lions has had a very successful summer season but in order to take our teams to the next level organizationally; we need a stronger, more consistent level of player commitment to our travel teams. The long term success of any team is only possible when a significant number of the same players attend the majority of practices/tournaments. This level of success has been achieved by our class of 2017 Select HS Boys team; and in order to replicate this type of achievement, we MUST change the overall structure of our program moving forward.

 All KC Blue Lion travel teams will be organized by the graduation year of our players for both our girls and boys programs. Based on the structure of the tournaments we attend, multiple graduation years may be combined for specific divisions (ie HS JV may include some players from 2018, 2017, 2016 or U-13 -2020 and 2021).  Some tournaments will include multiple teams at specific graduation years, while others will incorporate just the “select” team for the age group. For example, the boys fall 2014 tournament - The Dallas Lonestar Shoot Out, November 22nd and 23rd,  will have both select and competitive teams for specific graduation years as long as the registration numbers support more than one team. Our girls fall event, The Midwest Showcase, November 8th and 9th , will include only our select girls teams.

 Within the next week, travel team members will receive an invitation to participate on a specific Blue Lion team from September of 2014 through July of 2015. This invitation will detail the specific fall events a player is invited to attend, as well as invite the player’s parent (or parents) to attend a mandatory organizational team planning meeting to finalize the tournament selections for the 2015 year. The invitation letter will outline all fall programs, tournaments, practice dates/times, as well as the annual registration fees.  Additionally, the specifics of the team your child is being invited to participate on will be clearly defined and will include a list of other invited players, team coaches, etc.  Travel team rosters will be comprised of no more than 18-20 players ideally with the number to include 4-5 attack, 7-8 mid-fielders, 5-6 defenders/LSM and 2 goalies. A total of 25 invitations will be sent for all Select Team Classes of 2021 thru 2015 boys and girls.

All summer 2014 KC Blue Lion players, Class of 2015 thru 2025 will be invited to play on either a select or competitive 2014/2015 team.  Effective September 1st, 2014 new players interested in playing for our organization will initially be rostered  on our competitive teams.  Select Team tryouts will be conducted annually moving forward. (If more than 20 players accept the invitation to play on our select team- a depth  chart will be used to identify specific tournament rosters with the additional 5 players deemed alternates)   

 All invited players are asked to accept the invitation by paying a non-refundable team registration fee by the deadline date stated in the invitation letter. If this fee (or some type of follow-up communication) is not received by the deadline, it will be assumed your child is not interested in participating on this team for the coming year and another player will be invited to take this roster spot.  Invitation acceptance deadline will be August 21st. Team specific  parent meetings will be held at the Stickstop the first week of September.

We look forward to an exciting fall 2014 /2015 travel tournament season with the addition of several area high school coaches to our Heading Coaching Staff.  A very special thank you goes out to our entire coaching staff who have dedicated countless hours of their talents to help teams develop.

KC Blue Lion lacrosse, Kansas City’s only locally owned and operated competitive club lacrosse program, is confident the redesign of our program will further the success of all our players both individually and as a team. We look forward to a stronger partnership with our players and their parents as we move to a more interactive type of management and planning process. Thank you for helping us achieve such great success in the past 6 years.   We look forward to collectively continuing to foster outstanding lacrosse players from the Kansas City Community.
