6th Grade All Stars

The CGLA 6th grade All-Star Program is in its sixteenth year and has established itself as a wonderful CGLA tradition.  The purposes are:

1.To recognize those athletes who are raising the level of the game.

2.To give girls the opportunity to practice and play with other girls of equal ability and to have fun. 

3.To introduce the larger lacrosse community to the youth lacrosse community and visa-versa at the All Star Round Robin on Saturday June 3rd

 

Selection Process

 

The Sixth Grade All-Stars are chosen by their teammates, not by coaches.  6th Grade girls who are playing on traveling teams are not excluded from participating. Also, girls who are playing up on U13 teams and are in 6th grade ARE eligible.  Coaches are encouraged to meet with their players during the week of April 24th   and describe the All Star program, commitment, costs, and talk about excellence, sportsmanship, playing ability, and the honor of being an All Star.

 

 A suggestion would be to have coaches copy this information, hand it to all team members to make sure players are available if chosen. Remind your girls we will need 4 - 8 goalies - if players want to vote for their goalie. Then have the teammates vote confidentially by ballot for up to 8 players to represent their team. 

 Players chosen will be given special All Star certificates at the CGLA Spring Championship tournament on May 20 or May 21 at DSGP.  We will ask the coaches to pick up the certificates at the CGLA tournament table in the vendor village and pass out the certificates to the All Star players.  If the player is unable to attend the training camp or the actual All Star event-The player will still receive her certificate.

 

The total number of girls selected will be divided into four teams by the 6th grade All Star Coaches when they all practice together  at the Training camp on May 31- June 1-2- at Lorenz Park  (5-7:00pm).   The Regis University coaches and players will facilitate the training.  The four teams will compete against each other at the All Star Tournament on June 3rd at Colorado Academy. Games will be played from 9-12:00am in a round robin format.  Check in time is 8:30am.

 

   All Stars who cannot play in the Tournament on June 3rd are welcome to participate in the training camp (reduced fee $60). Just participation in the All Star games $50 on June 3rd.

 

Participation Requirements 

Participants (must be in 6th grade) are encouraged to attend all practices at the Training Camp on May 31-June 1-2  from 5:00 – 7:00 pm at Lorenz Park, and participate in the  All Star Tournament games on Saturday June 3rd.  Game times 9:00-12:00am.  Check in time at 8:30am\

The All Star Tournament

The All Star Tournament will be held at Colorado Academy on Saturday June 3rd from 9-12:00am.  Our All Star games will begin at 9:00am and each of the four teams will play each other once (in a round robin format), for a total of 3 regulation games.   

Cost

The cost per player is $110 ($60 training camp only/$50 tournament only).   The fee covers the cost of officials on June 3rd, practice and playing field rentals, the 3 day camp, a commemorative All Star team jersey, and a small stipend for the coaches.
