NTDP Women's Regional Tryouts

NTDP Regional Tryouts serve as the first of three steps towards earning a spot on the USA Select U16 and U18 teams.

Players will be trained and evaluated during this session by current and form U.S. National Team athletes and coaches. The top players will be invited to the National Combine, hosted in Maryland in August, and eventually 88 players will be named to the USA Select teams to compete against international competition in October.

IMPORTANT: You are trying out to make a national team NOT a regional team. Players are nationally ranked and tryout as individuals. We select the top 150 women and 150 men to the National Combine no matter where they live, where they go to school, or what team they play for. Players can try out at any regional tryout they prefer, and as many times as they want. However, players must either choose to try out in-person or via the virtual portal; they can not register for both.

Curriculum

The drills and competitions featured in the USA Lacrosse NTDP tryouts have been developed by the U.S. National Team coaches & personnel, with the goal to mirror the same level of elite training and evaluation used at the national team level. Each aspect of this event will not only provide participants with the opportunity to showcase their skill, but also give them insight as to what it takes to become a top-level player. Drills will include an emphasis on stick work, dodging, clearing, small-sided play, man-up/man-down situations, full-field play, and Olympic model 6v6 play. Throughout the tryout, individuals will be evaluated on athleticism, stick work, positional skill, game IQ, decision making, and overall field presence.

The purpose of the regional tryouts is to identify the elite players to move on to Stage 2 while giving all of the participants a first-class experience with a hands-on look at what the National Team pipeline looks like. Given the tryout is only 2.5 hours, in-depth, individual instructional feedback is NOT guaranteed.
