Rhino Syracuse Families-

We have been closely monitoring this unprecedented situation trying to work out the best solution for our players.  We have spent countless hours educating ourselves on the safety protocols and risks associated with trying to set up a summer travel program & schedule. Unfortunately, at this time, “contact lacrosse” as well as tournaments in which players are traveling is not permitted/ not recommended. Because of this, we are forced to cancel our summer tournament travel schedule for all teams.
Though we’re disappointed to not be providing you with the opportunity to travel and compete this summer, our goal is to utilize this opportunity to restructure our Syracuse Select Program entirely. I’m looking forward to being heavily involved with the program moving forward. Any thoughts or feedback on your experience with Rhino Lacrosse or what you would like to see in the future would be greatly appreciated! I can be reached at ryan@rhinolacrosse.com.

Rhino Syracuse Select is a club lacrosse organization that looks to facilitate the development of town and school teams by providing more opportunities to kids to play and develop. Our fall and winter offerings allow players to continue to keep a stick in their hand to prepare for their summer tournament seasons. Our summer tournament season gives players an opportunity to compete against and with players from other towns/schools, while avoiding as much conflict with ULA and local team commitments.

  • The Rhino SYR Select program provides a competitive opportunity to compete with a program that is committed to the ongoing development of each player.
  • Our coaching staff is invested in the individual training and growth of each player.
  • We will work to develop players in a challenging and exciting environment where leadership and teamwork will be expected of all players.
  • Our training, practice sessions, and clinic series will be just as important as our tournament play.
  • It is our hope that each player can carry their love of the sport with them and always strive to reach their highest potential both on and off the field.

REGISTRATION LINK

All participants receive a Rhino Lacrosse practice reversible.

Rhino coaches will focus on individual skill development along with some team concepts.  Players will complete a series of stations as well as position specific training throughout the 7 week fall training.   Some grad year coaches will utilize the fall as a tryout for their summer team.   All players are encouraged to attend at least 3 sessions to be evaluated for a summer team.  Players will also be informally evaluated to potentially be invited to participate in a fall tournament at the end of October or beginning of November at an additional cost.   Fall tournament attendance is dependent upon roster numbers for the fall.

***All participants must have a valid US Lacrosse membership***

If your son’s US lacrosse membership expires before August 1 2020 please plan on renewing
