Coaches Zach Fine 2028 Black HC Mickey McCarthy 2028 Black AC Melissa McCarthy 2028 Black AC Player Commitment It is expected that any player who tries out for M&D (2023/24 Season) that makes a team will be playing for M&D during the fall of 2023 & summer of 2024. It is a full one-year commitment. The 2028 team will also be playing in the spring of 2024 in the NGLL. M&D does promote multi-sports athletes. Our stance is that lacrosse games and practices that occur in the spring and summer should take priority over all other sports. In the fall and winter, any lacrosse games or practices should take a secondary priority to fall or winter sports. Players will not be penalized for missing practices or games in the fall or winter. Middle School Team Policy For the classes of 2028 through 2033, M&D will be playing in the spring of 2024 for the 3rd Season. M&D will be participating in the National Girls Lacrosse League, playing 6 games in the season. There will also be playoffs and a championship for each age group. Games will be on Sundays. All M&D teams who win their brackets will be competing in the NGLL championships and festival on Memorial Day Weekend in May of 2024. The NGLL championships are run in conjunction with the NCAA women’s Final Four. Player Refunds Deposits are non-refundable for all 3STEP Lacrosse clubs unless otherwise noted in this Policy.
