1. Why call the program the Fighting Ducks?
Long Island has long been known for many things. One of them is their prowess in lacrosse and one of the others is the fact that it serves as a native hosting ground for ducks. We couldn’t have thought of a better combination!
2. Why should I play for the Fighting Ducks?
The Fighting Duck's directors will provide organized, high-intensity training, and year round development, as well as top-notch coaching to players from Bayport-Blue Point, Sayville, Connetquot, East Islip, Islip, West Islip, Bay Shore, Pat-Med, Babylon and any other athlete from a program that wants a second to none experience both on and off the field! Teams for players K-1 through Varsity will train throughout the year and compete in the summer travel lacrosse circuit, with the ultimate goal of building players' skills and preparing them to compete at the next level.

2. How will I know if I made a team?
Team rosters will be posted by tryout jersey number within 48 hours of the end of tryouts. If your number does not appear on any of the rosters, it does not mean that you will not make a team. Invitations will be ongoing until the team rosters are full.
3. How do I secure my spot as a Fighting Duck?
Once posted, we ask that players register online to secure their spot. We will begin fall practices within two weeks of the end of tryouts. All registrations are done online.
4. What is the Fighting Ducks Refund Policy?
Once a player commits to playing for the Fighting Ducks after tryouts, that spot is theirs. To receive a refund, another player must fill that spot before a refund is issued. Visit fightingduckslacrosse.com for the full refund policy.
