      I have a son who is very interested in trying out for the U19 team. If I’m reading this right, if he doesn’t make the U19 team he will be offered a spot to play in the World festival. Aside from the selection event costs what are the costs involved with playing on the U19 team or World Festival? And other than the dates listed are there any other required dates of attendance?
      Thank you

      We do not have the full costs associated with participation with the U19 team or World Festival team at this juncture. The dates listed online are currently the only required dates of attendance.

      We live in Boston and my son was hoping to participate in the event on June 8th, however he has a training camp out of state with his club team that weekend. I see you will also have a date in New York on June 22nd. He is playing in a tournament that weekend in Long Island NY at the Big X tournament. Will you have anyone at that tournament to observe players. If not, is it possible to get the location of your event in NY on June 22nd?
      If he can not make either of these dates, is there anything else he can do to be considered for the U19 team?
      Thank You

      We live in Boston, however my son will be out of state at his Lacrosse team’s training camp on June 8th. He will be playing in a tournament in NY on June 22nd. Is there any way for a coach to observe him play so he can be considered for the team? Thank you

      How do you sign up to attend a selection event? My son is interested in attending the Heritage Cup Tournament in Phila, Pa?
