Girls 14U Athletes & Parents,
Tonight's practice will be "light". We'll start the usual way and run a full progression of passing, catching, shooting, and ground balls, BUT the second part of practice will be team building and some fun.
We want to take a pause to the rigors of practice to have some fun and build on what our club and team is all about, which is bonding as a team, getting those aweome life skills of being an athlete and on an athletic team. Hope to see everyone that can make it, including those that are on the mend from the flu going around or injured. If they can hang, I promise they will enjoy the low impact fun we've got going on tonight.
Practices are held Monday, Tuesday, Thursday from 6-730pm and Saturdays when we don't have games.
Concussion baseline testing should be this week (after some delays), we apologize but believe in this free service provided by our sponsor, Athlon PT.
The season game locations have been placed on the website, and we start at Scottsdale Sports Complex on February 29th (with the boys youth).
We are working on a scrimmage between Ahwatukee and us on Feb 15th, which coincides with a double header of Girls HS games at Naranja Park. Play in a scrimmage and relax at 1230pm watching some HS action.
I anticipate a FULL season schedule (with times) to be published around Feb 15th.
There is no practice on Rodeo Break.
Please make sure your athlete participates in practice the week after, as we will be gearing up for our first weekend of games.
Team and Individual Pictures will be taken on Tuesday, February 11th. We will start at 5pm as a club and individual team times will be announced by the team managers.
I got our packets and price sheets wet during the fun "rain practice" so I am getting more. Also, the club will post the price sheet (at least) to give you advance notice. Please attend the team picture! It means so much for everyone on the team. There is no obligation to purchase pictures, but there is an obligation to be in the team picture.
As always, communicaton is the key to success.
If there are any concerns, please find a coach after practice or Stacy Burden (our team manager and coach). We will need to start organizing some volunteer time to help set up and tear down practices/games, learn how fun it is to score a game, and keep the girls excited about being on a team (through snacks, fun things to do after games, and even on off days). Please volunteer ahead of when we ask, so we've got some "go-to" parents.
PS Thank you for giving your daughter the experience of playing lacrosse. It means so much to them and our coaches to watch them grow up into young adults
