Northeast FCA Lacrosse Announces Final Tryout for Syracuse Teams

Syracuse, NY – August 25, 2014 – Northeast Region FCA Lacrosse announces their final Syracuse tryout for the 2014/2015 Season. Tryouts for the Syracuse 2021-2022 team will take place on Sunday, August 31, 2014 at Chittenango High School in Chittenango, NY. Tryouts will take place on the turf field and will run from 3:00pm – 5:00pm.

Those players who are selected to the team will receive a roster spot for both the Fall and Summer teams regardless of whether or not they play in the fall.  All players are expected to attend at least one tryout.

“We’re looking to achieve a very high level of lacrosse,” High School team coach Greg Scott says. “When the FCA teams are on the field, they are very competitive. They play hard. They lead by example. They show character. That attitude is the same for the players, the coaches, and the directors. It’s a very cohesive group.”  This attitude has led to very successful teams on the field this summer, with teams capturing championships at the Philly Kickoff Classic, Irondequoit Invitational, United’s Summer Clash and Lehigh Laxfest.

Northeast FCA Lacrosse teams will be comprised of players from New York and New England and will compete this fall at some of the top tournaments around the region to include the Brandywine Classic in Toughkenamon, PA, the Flour City Face Off in Rochester, NY, the Capital Clash in Albany, NY and the MVP in Lawrence Township, NJ.

According to former FCA lacrosse player London Booker, FCA has put him in position for success on and off the field. “Put yourself in a position to earn things. I play for FCA because it gives me the opportunity to gain new experiences. I put myself in that position by playing.”

Scott concurs that these teams are a perfect opportunity for athletes “to showcase their talents and their character” and points towards a number of FCA success stories. When you look at our sidelines last summer, you saw players who loved the program and are continuing their success at the collegiate level like London Booker, Seth Miller (Roberts Wesleyan College) Mike Messina (Syracuse University), Tanner Cosens, Matt Kaser (Binghamton) and many others.

“When coaches hear that a recruit is an FCA kid, their eyes light up because they know that kid is going to have good character and he’s going to work hard,” Scott says.  Scott leads a coaching staff comprised of 3 current NCAA College Men’s Coaches, 5 High School Varsity Head Coaches, and numerous coaches with experience coaching and playing lacrosse at the High School and collegiate level.
