PRACTICE #3 RECAP

Hey Team!

Thanks for an excellent 3rd practice! We focused on several skills today (Practice #3 Plan):

  • Passing & Catching + 1 Pass Rule
  • Goal Shooting & Goal Circle (Crease) Violations
  • Defensive Body Position & Pass Interceptions with 1v1 Rule

...all in preparation for our Spring Lacrosse Play Day @ El Pomar Youth Sports Complex this Sunday. This Play Day will be a great opportunity for us to warm up to playing games for our season with other clubs in Colorado Springs. I'll send out more info regarding time & field as soon as I get it. As of this writing - all I know about this Sunday is that our Sunday will start sometime after 1:00pm


Next Practice: Tuesday from 5:00 to 6:15pm @ John Stone Park


In preparation for our Sunday game - I'd like to host the team & parents for a pizza dinner @ Marco's Pizza in Briar Village Point - where I will preview normal game play & fouls. Marco's has a nice community room with a table for about 16 people - perfect for this sort of talk! I still need to check on availability with Marco's - but I'm thinking of meeting Saturday from 5:30 to 7:00. As soon as I have confirmation from Marco's, I will push an email to the whole team.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns; all recommendations are welcome.

Thanks! Coach Dustin

PRACTICE #2 RECAP

Hey Team!

Thanks to all who made it out to our awesome Saturday practice make-up day (Practice #2 Plan). We focused on:

  • developing ground ball scoops
  • introduced passing & catching
  • 1v1 & 2v2 game drills with passing & shooting. 

In our next practice (Tuesday 5 to 6:15pm @ John Stone Park), we'll move away from specific focus on ground balls, and continue focus on passing & catching, shooting & defense - all in an effort to prepare our team for this coming Sunday's Spring Lacrosse Play Day @ El Pomar Youth Sports Complex. This is a great opportunity for us to warm up for our season with other clubs in Colorado Springs. I'll send out more info regarding time & field as soon as I get it. 


Thanks to daylight savings time, we'll have a bit more daylight to let us run practice a bit longer. Planning to run all practices from 5:00 - 6:15pm starting this Tuesday. All practices in our calendar will reflect this new timing. 


Final Note --> Team Pictures are scheduled for Friday, April 17th. 

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns; all recommendations are welcome.

Thanks & see ya Tuesday! Coach Dustin

PRACTICE #1 RECAP

Hi Team,

 

What an excellent first practice (Practice #1 Plan)! I'm really excited by how quickly our girls were able to tackle scooping & cradling. The end of practice got a bit chilly - so we scrambled a bit through some of the basic techniques to keep the girls warm through team movement & competition. 


Our practice this Saturday will focus on reinforcing our skills in scooping & cradling through a couple of unique & fun drills, and we'll move onto passing & catching + defense next week.


Two important requests from today:

  • When we end practice, please come down to our equipment area to pickup your girls. At the end of today's practice, many of the girls scattered to what I can only presume was their parents' cars. As I am responsible for taking care of the girls during practice (when parents aren't visibly present), today's exit made me a fair bit concerned for their well being. Call me over-protective (my daily job is focused on risk mitigation), but, until we get a bit more comfortable with everyone's mode of transportation, please plan on meeting me at the end of practice to pickup your girls. 
  • If you didn't receive a jersey & shorts at today's practice - please let me know! I'll check with Alice on when we may be able to get fitted for jersey's again. 

Again, I had a fantastic time coaching today & am excited with our amazing team. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns; all recommendations are welcome.

 

Thanks! Coach Dustin
