MN SELECT EVALUATIONS

We are excited to announce our 2021 Fall/Winter 2022 Summer Evaluations. We welcome the regions top Boys and Girls to Minnesota in July and August

As the longest running club program in the state we are excited to meet and coach student athletes with dedication towards the sport of lacrosse. Our program has had the privilege to work with and lead the regions youth for nearly 20 years! We dedicate our time to offer the largest amount of lacrosse training opportunities in the region. Student athletes have the option to participate in fall lacrosse, box, LTC Strength, Elite Training Sessions, and compete in national and regional elite recruitment showcases and tournaments.

Tryouts are an opportunity for our program and staff to tryout for you. Please take your time to research what our program offers and compare your options. We are confident with that research that you will find the best option for you as a student athlete and we look forward to seeing you at tryouts!

"I wanted to take a quick moment and thank you for The Loons' professional approach to running a program.  I work with many clubs around the country and the only groups that come close to your program's business acumen are a couple of the National groups who sponsor teams all over the country.  You are the only regional program who owns an indoor training facility, takes as much time and resources to give each and every one of their players the best opportunity to achieve their goals, and by far give the best off field experiences with the Colorado white water rafting excursions.
The MN Loons program offers the best value of any lacrosse club in the country.
The program's accomplishments are a super testimonial to the world class operation that you have built."
