Bantam is divided into three divisions (A, B and C). Those wishing to play on the A team (most advanced) must register for the A tryout sessions. Registration for the A tryout sessions is done within the regular registration process as a separate product at a cost of $50 which pays for the floor times and other costs associated with the process. The A team will be selected solely based on the A Tryouts.
A team evaluation dates:
Saturday, February 24 – 4:45-6:45 pm
Sunday, February 25 – 10:00-11:30 am

The CDLA adopted a new tiering model for the 2016 season.
We had 5 teams for the 2017 season. Under the tiering structure for the 5 teams we had were as follows:
1 A Team (formed from the A Tryouts)
2 B Teams
2 C Teams
Kids should be dressed in their full Lacrosse gear. For complete details on the equipment required you can visit the Calgary District Lacrosse Association website.
The Sabrecats do not take Friend Requests at the Bantam level when making teams. Teams are based on player evaluation rankings in an effort to create parity teams at each tiered level.
