Combine Application - Professional Lacrosse Players Combine Application
There are several upcoming opportunities in professional lacrosse for players completing their eligibility in 2011. A player is available to be claimed by a Major League Lacrosse team as soon as they complete their collegiate eligibility in 2011. Major League Lacrosse is also holding an Expansion Draft in 2011 to facilitate two new franchises in Columbus and Charlotte for the 2012 season. The National Lacrosse League will also be conducting its annual Entry Draft in the fall of 2011 for any players interested in playing professional indoor lacrosse for the 2011-2012 season. The Professional Lacrosse Players Combine will give players an opportunity to make contact with, and be evaluated by professional lacrosse teams in preparation for these events.
The NCAA has ruled that there would be no eligibility problem for any current senior student-athlete to register for this event before the 2011 season is completed. It is not a professional player draft so a player is able to complete the registration process before the end of the season.
