Girls 14U Warrior Parents,
Jam packed info below. Check out the highlights up top and then please go back to the rest of the email to know more about the season.
OPTIONAL Watch the Girls HS Wolverines battle out DV at 930am tomorrow
PRACTICE will start promptly after the game (around 1045am) for about an hour to stretch our legs on a full field scrimmage
Girls that come to watch the game will man a concession/swag stand for the game
NO RODEO PRACTICES
Please send your athlete out to watch and cheer on our Girls HS Wolverines in their first game of the season, tomorrow at 930am. We will run a short scrimmage right after and I promise to get them worn out by running the full field.
We're still growing and that means we need to adjust
We added two new players to the 14U roster over the last week. We are just about too big for one team, not enough age-appropriate players to make two, and we don't have enough 11U players to form a true youth team. This is all good stuff, but we want to give every girl enough playing time.
While the coaches are still working on things, we do want to assure the parents of some key takeaways for any adjustments we make.
- Every girl will play, and as much as they can handle
- We will keep the roster in tact on the website and in practices....no separate practice times. We may offer some extra time for our younger players to get some good one-one instruction from the coaches
Once the coaches talk, we'll send out a separate communication to the whole team to let you know what we would like to do to meet the objective above.
The Club has re-ordered jerseys for the whole team to match the ones we had last year
We just re-ordered the correct jerseys this week and hope to have them by the first games, but we will have alternatives. One big thing will be during pictures. We'd like girls that have the shooter shirt from last year to make them available to teammates and Coach Stacy (our manager) will send out good instructions for the Tuesday, February 25th picture day
We will NOT have practices over Rodeo Break (Feb 20-23)
Enjoy your time off. Currently, we will have practices over spring break to get ready for games on March 21st
Season Schedule - please RSVP on our website early!
The Arizona Girls Youth Lacrosse League decided to align with the Girls HS season and start games on Feb 22nd. We elected to take a bye during that weekend due to Rodeo Break.
Our first game weekend will be February 29th @ Scottsdale Sports Complex. It's going to be fun-filled, lacrosse packed weekend as we play games with the youth boys at the same place. Girls HS have a double header of games that day in Scottsdale as well. Much more on coordination on that later.
Game weekends are the time when the team forges that "teamwork" bond. Parents - please volunteer to carpool players, set up after game events, and provide snacks for the games. Please work with Stacy Burden, our team manager, on how you can help out.
While our website is up to date, with TBD times (expecting times for the year early next week), I'll list out the dates below with some notes. Of note, there are five Girls 14U teams in the league, seven 14U 8v8 teams, eleven 11U teams, and five 8U teams.
Feb 29th - Scottsdale Sports Complex (with boys youth)
March 7th - Naranja Park (boys youth in Rillito Park)
NO GAMES MARCH 14th
March 21st - Scottsdale Sports Complex (with boys youth)
March 28th - Gilbert/Mesquite HS (boys youth in Rillito Park)
April 4th - Scottsdale Sports Complex (with boys youth - this ends their season)
NO GAMES APRIL 11th (Easter weekend)
April 18th - Will Nolan Park/Ahwatukee
April 25th - Girls AGYL Cactus Cup @ Gilbert/Mesquite HS
Please RSVP on the website for games. The website schedule is the best place to let the coaches know if you will/will not be at a game. It gives us a easy rundown of the roster and helps in our planning.
Okay, I'm spent....hit any coach up with questions or concerns and let's get laxing!
