Game 1 Info - Sunday 9/29

Parents and Players,

Good practice on Monday. Girls showed lots of hustle and desire to improve tonight.

Full schedule will be released shortly. Until then, we have some of the game information for week one. For this fall, we will play 7v7 (with goalie) with a 2-3-2 lineup. Here is some basic information:

  • Arrive Early. Please arrive 1 hour prior to game time. This is valuable practice/warm-up time before games.

  • We will have fields G and H. One of the fields will be set up for full field games and one for 7v7. Unfortunately, we will not know until possibly Sunday which field will be which, but it will be easy to tell as the fields are right next to each other. A map was sent out with the email.
  • ***We need to know before end of day Thursday if you will not be able to make the game on Sunday. Please email or speak to one of us at practice. ***
  • Uniforms: New green pinnie (we do NOT have backups of this pinnie, please do not forget to bring it), black athletic bottoms, mouthguard, stick, goggles, water bottle and warm layers in case of cold weather.

Hello Patriots,

We had another great Thursday practice and we are privileged to see so many talented girls perform their stick tricks. Here's a congratulations to our winners Mad Dog and Chiara!

Practice Information: Normal Practice schedule days are Monday and Thursday, 5:30 - 7:00pm at John Stone Park. All players should have a stick, goggles, mouthguard, water, practice pinnie, and warm layers (it can get cold once the sun starts to set).

This Week in Lacrosse:

  • Please arrive a few minutes early to practice so we can start on time
  • Weekly focus: team building, 'cradle-cradle-cradle' (with dominant and nondominant hands), scrimmages as we prep for our first game.
  • Our first game is Sunday, September 29th (once a few more details are ironed out I will send out the Official Game schedule with times).
  • Stick Tricks will be held Monday and Thursday (this gives every girl a chance to shine throughout the season and encourages them to train outside of practice). Parents please arrive 15 min, early for pick up (6:45) to judge the competition.
  • FYI - We will not have practice Thursday, October 31st.

As always, feel free to reach out if you have any questions. Thanks, and have a great week!
