What if my son is on a summer select team already?

Although we would encourage all members of the Holy Cross lacrosse team be on the summer futures team, it is fine if a player is already a member or becomes a member of one of our local select club tournament teams. If a player wishes to be on both teams, efforts can be made to accommodate this. Please still fill out the registration form and put a note on the comments section indicating that your son is on a club team.
