Fusion Lacrosse is holding Wave 2 tryouts to fill limited openings on its travel teams.

The tryouts will be held Aug. 17 at Maple Zone Sports Village.

“We have just concluded what is unquestionably, our most successful initial tryouts to date! This year we wanted to really focus on our evaluation process and not simply filling teams. We have left a couple of positions open, and are hoping we can fill those in our Wave 2 tryout with really talented athletes that may have missed our tryout for whatever reason. If we can’t find them in Wave 2 we will keep searching but this is certainly the best chance available for local players!” – Fusion Co-Founder, Former NLL/MLL Pro, 2021 head coach and 2025 assistant coach Steven Holmes
