Oro Valley Warrior Girls Lax Players,
What to bring each time
Sign up for the Spring Season
Our practices for the first week are a little crazy, we are sorry. We will settle down in the month of November at Naranja Park, which is our home field.
First practice is Tuesday, October 29th, 530-7pm @ James D Kreigh Park
We will NOT have practice on Thursday (Halloween)
Second practice is Saturday, November 2nd, 10-1130am @ Naranja Park
Our normal FALL BALL practice schedule is on Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday.
Our website will always have the correct time and place of each scheduled practice and game
WHAT TO BRING EACH TIME
Our club provides all equipment that a youth player will need to play lacrosse. Equipment is loaned out to players, as they need it.
For first practice, bring:
-A GREAT attitude
For this season, please have:
-Plastic Molded Cleats
-and of course a GREAT attitude
$10 Lacrosse Cleats from boombah.com. So the popular sports equipment company, Boombah has got some good cleats for a very awesome deal of just $10+shipping. ANY molded cleat will be just fine. I bought my daughter a pair and they are very well made. If your daughter is dead-set on getting some “lacrosse cleats”, these are what you want.
We’ve benefited from some off-season recruiting of coaches. Besides our current coaching staff of Coach Hannah, Stacie, and I, we are proud to announce some new coaches and guest coaches.
Coach Stacy & David - our team managers and awesome parents of Amani & Morgan will help us this year in some coaching as well
Coach Wanda - another amazing parent of Taylor will round out the parent coaching help for us
Coach Auburn - a true lacrosse leader on our Wolverine HS team, she will partner up with Hannah
Coach Kamryn - a graduating senior from the U of A, she helped guest coach our fall clinic and has amazing enthusiasm and lax know-how
We will also see other guest coaches this fall to help us specialize in certain lacrosse positions. We are working out the final details with goalie coaches and draw/Middie coaches. In the spring, we hope to continue our relationship with Coach Annie, Payson, Sara and Evelyn.
We have an upcoming USL-led coaches clinics on November 9th and we want to invite any parent to sign up for the clinic. Having a great relationship with your player is very important to me and getting a little lax-know-how at this US Lacrosse lead event is one way.
Our fall season goal is to prepare our minds and bodies to have a great spring regular season! In crushing our goal, we want to do two things we’ve never done before.
1)Go to two tournaments in Phoenix
2)Run a conditioning program to be ready for the full field
Southwest Classic - Mesquite High School, Gilbert, AZ (approx 1+30 hours away)
November 16th & 17th
We will participate in the Middle School - Open Division, which is a different field format than what 14U is usually on. It will involve just 8 players (instead of 12)
We need to know if your athlete will participate in this tournament. Please let us know as soon as you can (first practice would be great)
Lax-4-Life - Tempe Sports Complex, Tempe, AZ (approx 1+20 hours away)
We will participate in the Middle School Division, which is dependent on number of teams that sign up on what format we play
It would be great to know if your athlete will participate in this tournament, but we have time...a little bit of time
We’ve benefited from our relationship with Coach Sara (a certified Strength & Conditioning Coach) and she created a great program for our girls this fall to help us address stick skills & conditioning.
In the effort to provide realistic conditioning, we will slowly introduce our girls to this program on days chosen by the coaches.
If there are concerns about your girls conditioning, please see Coach Doug
Finally, SIGN UP FOR THE SPRING SEASON!
We program a separate fall season and spring season. This benefits our program in allowing girls just starting out in lacrosse to enjoy the fall season, at an introductory rate.
For the spring, we offer a early bird discount through the 1st of December and the spring season goes from Jan 2nd to the end of April. If you are already “hooked”, please sign up for the spring season. This does two things for our program.
1)Girls that sign up for the spring season within the next couple weeks, we will be able to order their game jersey and shorts with the first batch of orders
2)We can accurately program for both teams, Girls 14U (6th through 8th grade) and Girls 11U (3rd through 5th grade) on coaches, fields, and game play through out the spring season
More details to help us all out. I’m a big communicator!!! I hope this gets us started this fall and feel free to reach out to me via phone or email if not.
Please respond with whether your athlete will be able to attend the Nov and Dec tournaments
