Scotland Men's U-19s

Postby GlyndwrLax1404 Wed Jun 29, 2011 2:13 pm

Ahead of the Under-19 World Championships in 2012, being held in Turku, Finland, Lacrosse Scotland is looking for players who are keen on representing this great country. There are open trials on August 6th & 7th August 2011, in Edinburgh. If you can’t make this, don’t worry, get in touch anyway and we can make arrangements!

We are keen to have players who are committed to developing themselves and Scottish lacrosse. Previous experience/ level of ability is irrelevant. A desire to work hard, have fun and be part of team are must haves.

Scotland has an exemption for players over 19 (up to 21 years old). However, you need to be playing in Scotland for this exemption to apply. If you are moving to Scotland for University this autumn please get in as you may well be eligible.

The eligibility criteria are detailed below.

If you think that you are eligible please get in touch with Keith Robertson, Head of Men’s Performance at mensperformance [at] lacrossescotland [dot] com or pm me for more details.

Criteria:
A) Born in Scotland.
B) Ordinarily resident in Scotland for not less than one year prior to the date of the match.
C) Ordinarily resident in Scotland for any period of not less than five years.
D) One or both parents born in Scotland.
G) Play for a Scottish club (U21 only).
H) Live in Scotland currently, includes school and university (U21 & Juniors/U19s only)

Lower Age
The lower limit age that applies to all World Championships and ILF sanctioned events is 16 years of age as of the day prior to Championship commencement. Consequently with the 2012 Championships starting on July 9th then players must be born on or prior to 8th July 1996

Upper Age
The upper age limit is that all players must be under 19 as at 31st August of the year before the Championships take place. For 2012 this means that players must be born after 31st August 1992 (stretched back to July 3rd 1992 to cover the “age trap” reflecting differing start dates of events).
N.B. Although Scotland has applied for an age dispensation (up to 21), you need to be a British Passport holder and reside in Scotland for a year prior to the tournament.

Just seen this about the age trap...

Does that only apply to people up to the age of 19 and not 21?
Because if it's based on the age at the time of the August before I'll still be 21?

This was what I was referring to.. Does it not apply to those included in the dispensation up to 21?

Confused as it seems that anyone who went to university in 2008 at the age of 18 (most school leavers) was effectively ruled out of being able to represent at u19/21 level unless they had played before uni and were aware of the competition.. May drop an email to the FIL on that.
