Prep (2031 / 2032)
M&D will keep approximately 45 top players per graduating class as teams are formed based on high school graduating years (i.e., class of 2023). This year M&D will have teams for the graduation classes of 2023 through 2032. Girls selected for the club will form two teams, Black and Red. The placement of players to the Black or the Red team will be based on player ability, skills, and commitment to club participation. M&D does not allow players to play up or down a grade level.
All try-outs’ results will be posted on August 17th, 2021.
Players listed on the posted roster have made the team, while those omitted from the roster have not.
M&D tryouts are open for all players. Player selections will be made based on ability and individual skills. Overall talent and player commitment will be weighed heavily on player selection.
All players are expected to wear clothing and shoes that are appropriate for outside play. It will also be helpful if the players could wear a reversible jersey with a light and dark color other than an M&D reversible.
Additionally, players are NOT to wear any M&D apparel or apparel from their respective high schools. M&D does not want to project any perceived favoritism or bias towards former M&D players. All players are expected to bring regulation women’s lacrosse stick, mouth guard, and goggles. All goalies are to provide their own equipment. All players are expected to provide their own water bottle.
NOTE: Please do not try out for M&D unless you are fully committed to playing with the M&D club. It is unfair to take a roster spot from someone who really wants to play. M&D does not allow a player to play for two club teams.
It is expected that any player who tries out for M&D (2021/22 Season) that makes a team will be playing for M&D during the fall of 2021 & summer of 2022. It is a full one-year commitment. The classes of 2026 through 2031 will also be playing in the spring of 2022 in the NGLL. M&D does promote multi-sports athletes. Our stance is that lacrosse games and practices that occur in the spring and summer should take priority over all other sports. In the fall and winter, any lacrosse games or practices should take a secondary priority to fall or winter sports. Players will not be penalized for missing practices or games in the fall or winter.
Middle School Team Policy - For the classes of 2026 through 2031, M&D will be playing in the spring of 2022 for the 3rd Season. M&D will be participating in the National Girls Lacrosse League, playing 6 games in the season. There will also be playoffs and a championship for each age group. Games will be on Sundays. All M&D teams who win their brackets will be competing in the NGLL championships and festival on Memorial Day Weekend in Baltimore in May of 2021. The NGLL championships are run in conjunction with the NCAA women’s Final Four.
