How will the teams be selected? Are there try-outs? Coaching?
A two-step process will be put in place to select the Jr Astros Teams: The talent pool will come from Derry & Hampstead as well as the other towns that feed Pinkerton Academy. The boys will be offered high level coaching from past and present collegiate players, high school players and experienced adult coaches.
Step 1: Players will be evaluated by the coaches of the Jr Astros teams during the regular NHYLA season. The Town program coaches will suggest players based on their observations throughout the season and select the boys who will be a good fit for tryouts.
Step 2: Players will be evaluated on the basic lacrosse skills of passing and throwing as well as more advanced skills and strategies. The players will also be involved in multiple scrimmage style drills to simulate game play and lacrosse IQ. Final selections are approved by the Jr Astros Head coaches.
