SFLA offers Travel Team opportunities from the start of the off season in May until December.
Elite Travel team opportunities are available for players looking to play Elite level Lacrosse or secure NCAA Lacrosse scholarship. With more Scholarships available in Men's and Womenâ€™s Lacrosse than in Menâ€™s or Womenâ€™s hockey this is an excellent opportunity for young athletes to use their gifts and abilities at the next level while receiving an excellent education. Every year SFLA Elite teams travel to play in scouted tournaments in the U.S. where players make lasting memories and create educational opportunities for young Saskatchewan Lacrosse players!
Just before house leagues end tryouts for each age group are held and teams picked that travel to between 2 and 4 festivals(same idea as a round robin tournament but with no finals held) around the province with one typically held in Saskatoon. Sometimes a tryout isnâ€™t necessary as many of our players play box lacrosse, spring hockey, baseball etc and weekend conflicts arise, in those instances if there are enough players we still run the teams but without a tryout.
The Spartans are Junior Varsity and Varsity teams that have attended U.S. tournaments and plan on attending tournaments scouted by NCAA, MCLA and other US College programs in order to recruit players through full or partial scholarships.
Spartans hold open tryouts for their respective programs
Team Sask is an entity of the SLA (Saskatchewan Lacrosse Association) which is the governing body of all Lacrosse member associations in Saskatchewan. They hold tryouts for teams in the 14U, 16U and 19U age that compete for Gold at the CLA Field Lacrosse National championships.
