IYL Senior Boy's Clinic and Skill Assessments

The 2010 annual Senior Boy's 3-day Skill Assessment and Clinic begins Friday, 5th February at Skyline Community Fields in Sammamish and continues on Saturday, 6th & Monday, 8th.

All eligible* Seniors participate in a series of drill stations, running and agility tests and scrimmages. This is a high-intensity beginning to the 2010 Spring season for all Seniors. The League also uses these sessions to select the two IYL "A" teams and assess the general skill level of all players so that regular team rosters can be assigned to create teams that are at rough parity for regular season play.

All eligible* registered Senior (7/8 Grades) Boys should attend all three clinics, and must attend at least two of the three clinics. The second clinic will be held on Saturday, 6th from 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM and again on Monday, 8th from 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM. All clinics are held at Skyline Community Fields.

Note: Players should arrive with full gear and be dressed & game ready at the clinic start times. Registration opens at 5:00 PM on Friday and 5:30 PM on Saturday and Monday. Players & Parents must turn in a signed Concussion Awareness Form before joining the clinic drills.

*Eligibility Requirements: Players must be registered, have all IYL registration fees paid in full, have a valid US Lacrosse membership, and have provided a signed Concussion Awareness Form to league officials as required by Washington State law.
