2015 MLL Draft FAQ (frequently asked questions for NCAA athletes)


1.         Q:  When is the MLL College Draft?



2.         Q:  Do I have to fill out any paperwork to be eligible for the Draft?

A:  NO, there is no paperwork to fill out, per NCAA rules.  Only seniors with expiring eligibility after the 2015 NCAA season are eligible to be drafted. Until your NCAA eligibility has expired, you will NEVER be asked to sign any paperwork from Major League Lacrosse or any of its member Teams.


3.         Q:  How do I avoid jeopardizing my senior year of eligibility?


1.  MLL has already taken the necessary steps internally to ensure that your name is able to be considered for draft by an MLL Team.    

2. As stated above in Point #2, players who are enrolled at NCAA institutions are not required to register anywhere to be part of the 2016 collegiate draft.

3.  If you are drafted, MLL will NOT be offering or issuing you a contract of any type or discussing terms of an agreement with you until your NCAA team’s season (including postseason) is concluded.


4.         Q:  Am I allowed to reach out to teams regarding the Draft?

A:  The League office would prefer that you do not contact its member Teams.  Per NCAA rules, MLL’s teams can reach out to you, but have been instructed to not, in any way, discuss signing any type of contract/agreement with MLL or giving any type of verbal commitment.


5.         Q:  Are MLL coaches and General Managers allowed to contact my college coach?

A:  Yes, MLL coaches and General Managers are allowed to contact your NCAA coaches to discuss you.


6.         Q:  Am I allowed to attend the Draft on January 10th?

A:  Yes, invited seniors will be permitted to attend the collegiate draft provided that they assume responsibility for any and all expenses relating to their attendance.  You, your college coach and other members of your Athletic Department will receive more information regarding the process to RSVP to the Draft.


7.         Q:  May I accept any complimentary items from any MLL Team before, during or after the Draft?

A:  NO.   Per NCAA rules, complimentary items would be considered an extra benefit.  MLL teams have been instructed not to provide you with any complimentary items, subject to severe League discipline. If you do receive any complimentary items from any MLL Team, please return it immediately and contact your Compliance Office.


8.         Q:  What happens if an MLL Team or an outside media outlet contacts me?

A:  Per NCAA rules, you are allowed to speak with MLL Teams and various media outlets before, during and after the Draft.   


9.         Q:  During my 2016 NCAA season may I answer questions during an interview about playing in                             MLL?

A:  Yes, you are allowed to answer questions regarding your plans for the summer.  Since you will not be offered any type of MLL contract until your NCAA eligibility has expired, you should not refer to yourself as an MLL employee or player before your NCAA season ends and you are in fact offered a contract and it’s executed.  You may refer to yourself and speak about being drafted in the 2016 collegiate draft by “X” MLL Team during the NCAA season.


10.       Q:  Will I be able to sign a contact immediately following the Draft?

A:  NO.  As stated above in #3, it is against NCAA rules to sign a contract with intent to play a     professional sport if you are still enrolled as a student-athlete.  Contracts will be distributed to those drafted following the conclusion of their 2015 NCAA season (including post-season play).


11.       Q:  What happens if I am not selected in the Draft?

A:  After the NCAA season is complete, MLL will allow all undrafted seniors who just completed their eligibility to register for the Player Pool for a one week period.  After that, teams will be able to select you by using the normal MLL waiver wire process.  Please note there is no such thing as being a free agent in the MLL, so all undrafted players will go through this process.
