The local players named are:

Entering their 13th season and about to embark on the program's 54th international trip, the Burnaby Mountain Selects are widely recognized as one of Canada's top field lacrosse development programs, combining excellence on the field, with the importance of academic achievement.

Over the course of the summer season, the Selects practice on-field twice a week, with an additional three hours of weekly Study Hall for high school aged student-athletes until the end of the school year.

The boys' freshman and sophomore elite teams will travel to the iconic college town of South Bend, Indiana, home to the University of Notre Dame, July 4 to 8, to compete at the Irish Experience team camp. The Selects will have the opportunity to compete in front of the Notre Dame coaching staff and other NCAA College coaches in attendance during three days of championship competition.
