With the first draft of Athletes Unlimited Lacrosse Season 2 in the rearview mirror, the summer season is finally here.

Charlotte North was selected first overall by captain Brittany Read in the first AU draft of the season on Monday, a not-so-surprising choice after North took the international stage by storm with the U.S. national team that won gold in Towson, Md., earlier this month.

The unique staple of Athletes Unlimited, weekly drafts shake up rosters and provide a fantasy-like component to the action. Fans can see their dreams player combinations come together to score points, both as a team and as individuals, to climb the leaderboard.

The Athletes Unlimited season begins Thursday evening, and every game during Season 2 will be held at USA Lacrosse headquarters in Sparks, Md. Here are the rosters taking the field this weekend.
