Player Movement Policy
Major League Lacrosse has opened up the Player Pool for any player who wishes to be eligible for the 2017 MLL season. Player Pool registration must be completed in order to participate in 2017 season play. If you were on a Major League Lacrosse team roster at any point in the 2016 season, OR were in the MLL Player Pool in 2016, you DO NOT need to re-register. The deadline to register is
December 7, 2016
You can register for the MLL Player Pool by clicking on this link.
National Collegiate Athletic Association: If you currently have remaining NCAA eligibility, upon submitting this registration form you will forfeit any remaining NCAA eligibility. To be eligible in 2017, you must be either a College Graduate OR if you did not attend College, you must have graduated High School no later than 2013.
By submitting this form, you are declaring yourself medically fit for professional field lacrosse and eligible for the 2017 MLL season. If you are found medically unfit due to a known medical precondition you will not be draft eligible until the 2018 season.
Upon registering for the 2017 MLL Player Pool, you will remain eligible to be claimed under MLL policies, at any time throughout the League season. If you are claimed from the Player Pool you will then be notified by that Team. You are free to contact MLL teams to discuss interest, ability to travel and work commitments. No team may represent or warrant that a position on its Active Roster is guaranteed.
If a player has been in the League for a minimum of 5 consecutive seasons and has an expiring contract, he will have the ability to relocate to a different market and team. Those eligible will have from
August 29 to September 23
to officially decide to not renew their League contract and sign a document expressing their intent to look into relocation. Players will have until one week prior to the next draft, Supplemental or Expansion, to sign a new League contract with a new MLL team. If the player does not join another team by that period, the player’s original team has the option of placing him on their protected roster. If the player is not placed on the protected roster, he will be released into the player pool.
