TEAM SOCAL is an open opportunity. All age-eligible players who live within 100 miles of OCGP are invited to the tryout. Please note that we do require TEAM SOCAL training/practices and events to be your son's priority for the length of its programming. TEAM SOCAL is committed to supporting local level lacrosse. TEAM SOCAL has planned it's training and event schedule to avoid conflicts with numerous clubs (most of which are listed on the home page).
TEAM SOCAL roster will be capped at 25 players (as allowed by the LWSC). This roster can be roughly broken down to two goal keepers, 10 midfielders (includes faceoff and defensive midfielders), seven defensemen (includes long stick midfielders) and six attackmen.
The majority of TEAM SOCAL training/practices will be held at the Orange County Great Park located in Irvine, CA.
The practice schedule for the 2022 - 2023 season is TBD, however, we are planning on 8 - 10 practices between tryouts, Sandstorm and the LWSC West Qualifier. These will typically be a two - hour duration. There will be another phase of practices for the Vail Lacrosse Tournament and LWSC Championship Event.
No! Our staff has coordinated with West Coast Starz to develop a practice/training and tournament schedule that does not conflict with any West Coast Starz tournaments. In fact, many of our players are current West Coast Starz standouts!
