Program Overview Our Program The M&D Shore Lax program demands a team oriented attitude that is displayed on and off the field. M&D plays excellent competition and are showcased in some of the nation’s top events. This program is modeled after college programs, with emphasis on teamwork, discipline and dedicating themselves to lacrosse year round. Playing for M&D gives athletes the experience of traveling all over the east coast and playing lacrosse. Teams Player Commitment It is expected that any player who tries out for M&D (2022/23 Season) that makes a team will be playing for M&D during the fall of 2022 & summer of 2023. It is a full one-year commitment. The classes of 2026 through 2031 will also be playing in the spring of 2023 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 2026 through 2031, M&D will be playing in the spring of 2023 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 Raleigh, NC in May of 2023. 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.
