Welcome to the Maryland State Lacrosse Coaches Association
The MSLCA is a volunteer organization of high school boy’s lacrosse coaches from throughout the state of Maryland whose purpose is to promote individual student-athletes and the high school boy’s lacrosse programs of Maryland. MSLCA promotes high school lacrosse through statewide polls and rankings, pre-season and post-season All-State Teams, Senior All-Star game and the Freestate Tryouts and games. The MSLCA also participates with The Kelly Foundation to honor the best players from throughout the state in the nominations and presentations of the Kelly Award given to the best individual player in the state as well as Division winners for each of the MPSSAA classifications and a North and South Private School winner. The MSLCA also recognizes the accomplishments of past high school coaches through the MSCLA Coaches Hall-of-Fame.
The MSLCA organizes and hosts the Freestate Tryouts which has become one of the best recruiting opportunities for high school lacrosse players. The Freestates have the best high school lacrosse players from throughout the state tryout for selection to the prestigious MSLCA Freestate Teams. The Freestate tryout process and games are one of the most heavily attended recruiting events in the nation.

PLEASE BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR JUNK OR SPAM FOLDERS as the emails go out to large groups. Every year a player misses out on the opportunity because the email went to their junk/spam folder.

Payment must be made online via www.stonealley.com.
