Men (Field)

The Scottish men’s lacrosse team is defined by its strong heritage, culture and unity. Our goal is to build a program based on character, leadership and personal integrity. Through hard work and professionalism, we seek to further the growth of the team, as well as the individual. As ambassadors of the sport of lacrosse and of Scotland, we will uphold these values both on and off the field to leave a lasting and aspirational legacy for future players, coaches and staff.

The cost per Open Trial will be £50.00. Those who want to participate in both trails are more than welcome to do so. Please note that accommodation will not be provided for either weekend, so players will need to organise their own lodging. In addition, involvement in these Open Trials will require a Lacrosse Scotland annual membership. If you are not an active member, you cannot trial for the team. Lastly, players must attend BOTH the Saturday and Sunday sessions of whichever trial weekend they are attending.

Expectations for UK & European Based Players:
All United Kingdom and European based players are required to attend an Open Trial, both domestic spring tournaments, and then every Training Camp from now until the 2025 European Championships. A complete schedule of our training dates is found below to help with your future planning. However, we also understand that we need to be flexible. If communicated in advance, a player will get an excused absence for major life events, such as weddings, funerals, births, family emergencies, etc. This also includes players who are currently on the Box Lacrosse roster. These athletes will not have to join the team until January 2025 so that they can focus on their World Championship in the United States. If you will miss an upcoming session(s), please contact me to further discuss the situation. The Senior Squad will remain open to new players until Friday, 13th September 2024. This is to accommodate university students and/or other players new to the game that want to join the squad in the autumn. However, anyone joining after this date will have to spend a minimum of two months with the Academy Team before being considered for promotion to the Senior Team. The Academy Team will remain open until we leave for the 2025 European Championships.

Expectations for Overseas Based Players:
All Scottish hopefuls based overseas will need to make an alternative commitment to be considered for the final squad. All international players will be required to attend at least one Open Trial, domestic spring tournament, or Training Camp between February 2024 and September 2024, and then a second one between October 2024 and June 2025. This means that overseas players should expect to come over a minimum of two (2) times in next 18 months to compete for a spot on the final roster at the 2025 European Championships. All interested overseas players who can meet these important attendance requirements, please contact Coach Bagley (contact details below) by Friday, 23rd February 2024 to declare your intention to trial for the team, and when you expect to come to the UK to trial.
