Several Cloverdale lacrosse players have been chosen to play with the Burnaby Mountain Selects this summer.

Hazelgrove Elementary's Nick Bachmeier, Taylor Dudlets from Adams Road Elementary, and Ty Ewen of George Greenaway Elementary are joining the team Selects U13 Elite team – one of five travel teams fielded by the lacrosse development program.

The Selects Elite touring model follows a similar template to a university lacrosse program, and it's designed to train players in a high-performance environment.

The Burnaby Mountain Selects have also announced that Derek Van Yperen of Clayton Heights Secondary is on the boy's U15 Elite team.

Wyatt Kinna of Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary is on the Boy's Junior Elite team.

Both the Boys U13 and U15 elite teams will be traveling to Denver, Colorado, this week for a Denver Pioneers Team Camp June 21-24. The camp is hosted by Hall of Fame coach Bill Tierney and the DU men’s lacrosse coaching staff.

July 4 to 8, the Boy's Junior Elite team travels to Syracuse, New York for the Syracuse University Summer Shootout I.

The Shootout is hosted by Orange Head Coach John Desko and the men’s lacrosse coaching staff of the eleven-time NCAA National Champion Syracuse University. The tournament will provide elite teams from across North America with the opportunity to compete in front of college coaches in attendance from many of the NCAA’s top lacrosse programs.
