Hi 10U Team Parents,
Practice on Saturday is important, it is our last Saturday practice before all the games start and I believe the coaches were hoping to have a full scrimmage game for the boys on this day to get some good game practice in.
Photos of each player and Team Player Books
We need to have a player book for the coach to have in case refs need to verify USL. I, or Erin, will be taking photos of your boys on Saturday and again on Tuesday for those we missed on Saturday. From here, we will be able to create a full roster with photos and USL numbers in case refs and games need to verify. So, in case you see us taking a picture of your son, this is why.
Concussion baseline testing by Athlon
A letter from Robert Klingman:
Hello Oro Valley Lacrosse Families, Due to improved availability of staffing for Athlon Physical Therapy, complimentary baseline concussion testing will be carried out Tue January 28th, Wednesday January 29th, and Thursday January 30th, 6-8 pm, at Naranja Park. Testing involves a 3-5 minute, valid and reliable measure of baseline neurocognitive function (King-Devick Test), which will be carried out with each athlete individually. The test, which is timed, and involves visual tracking of numbers and reporting those numbers in their correct sequence, will be saved and compared to future incidents, in the event they are needed. There will be an Athlon Physical Therapy Tent with tables and Athlon physical therapists available during the dates and times above to collect the data and then maintain for future comparison testing, as well as share with each coach. If an athlete, or their family, would like to have the results shared with them, that is fine to do so, and will be provided upon request.
If there are any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me. Thank you for this opportunity to assist in keeping our athletes safe.

Snacks – don’t forget to sign up to help bring snacks to a future game!
Now that we have our schedule, we are releasing a "sign up genius" for all families to sign up for snack/drink contribution. Erin and I will bring fruit but are asking each of you to contribute either drinks or nut free snacks for one game (18 kids).
Sign up link is: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20F0B45AAAE2AA1FF2-game
Mouth Guards: if you have not already, please leave an extra mouth guard for your son, in a marked plastic baggie, with me or Erin at an upcoming practice. We will hold onto these and bring them to the games just in case one is forgotten.
Team Photos: On Tuesday we began to hand out Team Photo order packets. If you did not get one, please see me or Erin on Saturday or next week. Team photos will be on Tuesday, February 11th at 5:00pm before practice. There will be a makeup day on the 12th at 5:00 pm in case you can’t make it on the Tuesday.
1) The league is looking for some volunteers to help with an idea for a Cornhole tournament. If anyone would be interested in this please let I or Erin know and we’ll put you in touch with Kathy Kang, the Board President. We already have a place, just need someone to organize and advertise it.
2) Youth teams fundraiser—Mister Car Wash cards
We have Mister Car Wash cards that do not expire, are good at any Mister Car Wash location, and it is the same price as getting a car wash there. The difference is that when OV LAX sells the cards, Mister Car Wash gives the club 50% back. Full Car Wash cards are $15 a piece. We will be getting some of these and if you are interested in selling them, please let us know.
Thanks! See you Saturday!
