About

The 2021 Tournament features two divisions in each region- the Command Division and Highlight Division. The Command Division will showcase players from the 2024 and 2025 high school graduation years, while the Highlight Division will feature the 2022 and 2023 players. Each division will compete within itself at the tryouts and main event.

The SPOTLIGHT division will showcase the best 2023 players from tryouts that did not make their regional Highlight team.

The regional teams are selected via tryouts during the summer. Once selected, the Underclass teams will travel to Baltimore, MD and compete in the All America Underclass Tournament. Each team will battle it out in a pool play tournament at the All-America Lacrosse Classic® Weekend to be crowned the Nations’ Elite.

Athlete Benefits

College Coaches from DI, DII & DIII lacrosse programs will be invited to attend both the regional tryouts as well as the games in Baltimore. Participants who play in the Underclass Tournament will have the inside track to being exposed to the selection committee of the Under Armour All-America team which they will be eligible for once they are seniors. All participants will receive an Under Armour Tech T and Under Armour tryout pinnie at check-in. Players that make the final rosters will receive a custom Under Armour All-America event gear package and a ticket to the All-America games.

Selection

Each player must register and tryout for their geographic region. Players will be judged by a panel of evaluates including coaching experts from that region. Each team will consist of a maximum of 23 players and will be chosen based on position and their performance at that day’s tryout. Teams will be announced 72 hours after the tryout.

In an effort to continue the highly successful concept of the Under Armour Underclass Tournament and Tryouts we have created a set of guidelines and procedures that will help foster an environment of inclusion and fairness for all players.  The tryout is intended to select the top 23 players regardless of what school, state, or club team affiliation.

Tryout Structure

  • Players are randomly assigned jersey numbers and teams for the tryout
  • Teams will rotate equally through all the fields
  • Each team will be assigned an evaluator to coach a particular team. Along with the floating evaluators, all players will be evaluated based on certain criteria.
  • Each evaluator will be provided an evaluation sheet that consists of tryout numbers and position ONLY. No player data will be expressed on the evaluator sheets.
  • At the end of the first session or night, all evaluators and coaches will meet and establish a ‘watch list’ of the top 50-75 players depending on the total number of participants
  • No player is locked in to the ‘watch list’ and can be bumped in or out depending on their performance at the second session/night.
  • Towards the end of the tryout the final top 50/75 will be posted or called out.  At that time a final top 50/75 game(s) will be played

Selection Process

  • At the end of the tryout all evaluators will meet to discuss all players and select the final 23 players.
  • A Corrigan Sports representative will lead the discussion and put players ‘on the board’
  • No coach (high school or club) may mention one of their own players
  • Players will be evaluated on their performance at the tryout
  • The final 23 player roster must have two (2) goalies, but can be comprised of any other combination of Attack, Midfield, and Defense.  (ex/ 6 Att, 8 Mid, 6 Def)
  • Once the final roster is selected the 2021 Spotlight players will be selected
  • The final roster will be posted within 72 hours of the team being selected, and invitation emails will be sent out.
  •  Players selected to the 23 player roster must have registered and checked in on the first day of the tryout. No exceptions.
Regions

*These are recommended locations. The athlete has the choice to tryout for any region, which is most convenient for their schedule. For instance – If you go to school in a different State then your hometown, you may tryout in either location. However, whatever region you tryout for, is the Region you will represent if you make the team.
