Aces Summer Program is offered from approximately June 15th through July 15th each year. Summer athletes are competitive and Aces seeks athletes who can play at competitive club play and tournament participation.  Athletes with commitments that prevent year around play – including, but not limited to, the multi-sport athlete, boarding school students, multi-club athletes, homes with multiple athletes, or other athletes who come to Southeastern Massachusetts during June and July – may seek this alternative to our year around program.

Athletes have the opportunity to play lacrosse for a 30-day intense, competitive season. The season consists of weekday evening practices (usually Tuesday and Thursday evenings), and up to three tournaments on the weekends (one or two days).

Athletes are placed on teams, and entered in tournaments, based on the CURRENT grade the student is enrolled in – for example, a current 8th grader plays Youth tournaments in the 8th grade bracket. In general, athletes can play in brackets against older athletes, but cannot play down age brackets against younger athletes.

Aces hold tryouts for the Summer Aces in May each year. Athletes who are unable to attend tryouts should contact Aces to make special accommodations. Aces may accept athletes to fill out year around programs, or make a team consisting of solely summer athletes.
