The Primary Evaluation Dates for both Boys High School and Boys Youth players will take place July 26th, July 27th, and August 1st. For All Girls, the dates will be July 27th and August 1st.

Evaluations will take place in a camp-like tryout setting led by NCAA Coaches and Minnesota Loons Lacrosse staff! Our focus is to provide a competitive environment but also an opportunity to learn from different coaches.

"I wanted to take a moment today to thank you and your crew of coaches and organizers for the incredible weekend with the MN Loons in Colorado.

From the hotel choice to the hypnotist to the choice of tournament to the professional team photographer…everything was so geared towards a positive team lacrosse experience for the kids. I hope a lot of recruiters come calling for those 23 boys. They are special.

We had a great time!"

"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."
