AN OVERVIEW OF THE JUNIOR PROGRAM:
After completion of the Midget level of minor lacrosse, players move on to the "Junior Program" for young men and women wanting to continue with the game of lacrosse (players aged 17 to 21). The Junior Division in the Province of Alberta is governed by the Rocky Mountain Lacrosse Association ("RMLL"), the lacrosse organization in Alberta that oversees Major lacrosse.
Major lacrosse differs from minor lacrosse in many ways.
For the Male Players - For Junior "A" and Junior "B" Tier 1 teams in Southern Alberta, there is also a player "draft" annually in late February or early March whereby the teams in these divisions are allowed to "draft" players to their team from the pool of graduating Midgets, Junior "B" (Tier 1), Junior "B" (Tier 2), Junior "B" (Tier 3) and walk-in players who have not played for a year or two.
The "drafting" process is in place to ensure highly skilled players are provided the opportunity to play at the highest possible level of their ability and to promote their parity amongst the Junior "B" and Junior "B" teams in the province.
The Junior "B" Tier 2 and Tier 3 divisions of the RMLL allow players to (a) continue in lacrosse and (b) develop their skills if they wish to evolve to the highly competitive Junior "A" or Junior "B" Tier 1 divisions.
All the Junior "B" levels require commitment, skill and a desire to continue learning the game of box lacrosse.
