Please Review the Bullet Points Below & Hopefully this Helps you have a better Understanding for Joining Duke's Lacrosse Club as you Embark on the Journey of a Lifetime.
1) The New Incoming Player Class of 2022's & 2023 will have 2 Team's.
2) There will be OPEN Competition between ALL Player's to Determine which of the 2 Team's Player's will Participate on.
3) This OPEN Competition will Create a Depth Chart at Each Position which will in turn decide which Team of 2022's & 2023 a Player Competes on.
4) Competition to see where a Player Stands on the Depth Chart will Occur at Tryouts and Ricky Whelan Clinics thru the Fall leading into the Oct/Nov Fall Tournament Season.
5) BOTH 2022 & 2023 Team's will Compete in the SAME Fall Tournament's and Receive the SAME High Level Visibility at Significant Recruiting Tournaments.

7) Tryouts and Ricky Whelan Clinics are Opportunities to be CONSTANTLY EVALUATED. If you are an Early Automatic Add then it's a Chance to be seen and Move up the Depth Chart. If you are NOT an Early Add Player, know that you CAN BE ADDED to the 2022 & 2023 Team Roster at any one of the Tryouts or Clinics.
