What is the selection process?
Your player will be evaluated on his athleticism, lacrosse IQ, and skill at the STX Rising East and STX Rising West camps. He will be evaluated by our National Evaluator for his grade. A National Evaluator is assigned to each grade, and the same Evaluator will evaluate the same grade at all camps to ensure consistency.
Evaluation will be based on performance at these gateway camps. No previous statistics, records, accolades, recommendations or other information will be taken into consideration during the selection process. The players who play the best across the three days of STX Rising East and STX Rising West camps will be selected.

Invitations and non-invitation notifications will be sent through email to the primary parent contact email listed on your account.
