Avalanche Select Teams
2020 was a year of exceptional obstacles to say the least. A few Avalanche teams made it to tournaments but for the most part events were cancelled and we were forced to stay close to home and focus on individual skills development. Avalanche is excited to re-engage with a competitive tournament travel season in the summer of 2021!
Summer 2021 planning is underway for Avalanche Select Teams. To create the best instructional and competitive programming in the region, Avalanche Select Teams will again be invitation only. Youth and High School High Sierra Lacrosse League players will be nominated by their coach/es or program directors, based on lacrosse in league play, attitude and effort.
Team Details - Avalanche Select Teams will be aligned by graduation year. Rosters will consist of 18-20 players. Avalanche will maintain a player pool of alternates to be utilized for filling tournament roster spots and to offer robust training opportunities for all High Sierra Lacrosse athletes.
