10U Families,

Hope you each enjoyed some extra family time this weekend.  

Our locations for this season's game days have been released.  Please know that this is our tentative plan but details such as exact times and locations will be released closer to each game day.  We will communicate this info as it comes in.   

Season Schedule is listed as below:   

1/25-Naranja Park 9am practice-Other OVLC teams will be traveling to Phx but Todd was hesitant for 10u to travel to Phx 2 weekends in a row so scheduled us to practice in OV instead.  If you are looking for more lacrosse fun, the high school team will have scrimmages at Riverfront Park on Lambert at 12pm and 2pm.  All support is welcome.  

Starting 2/1 interleague games begin so Saturday attendance is very important. Please RSVP via the app or communicate intentions for attendance.  

2/1-Anthem AZ

2/8-Rillito Park, Tucson AZ

2/15-Rillito Park, Tucson AZ

2/22-Maricopa AZ (Rodeo weekend so especially important you either RSVP via the app or notify Sara/myself)

2/29-Scottsdale AZ

3/7-Rillito Park, Tucson AZ

3/21-Scottsdale AZ (Spring Break, again especially important you RSVP via the app or notify Sara/myself)

3/28-Rillito Park, Tucson AZ

4/4-Championship Tournament, Scottsdale AZ

Snacks:  Now that we have our schedule, we are releasing a "sign up genius" for all family to sign up for snack/drink contribution.  Sara 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

SWAG Store and updates
by posted 01/13/2020

Hi 10U Parents!

We wanted to post a few reminders for the week.

Practice schedule this week is the usual: Tuesday and Thursday, 5:30pm; Saturday, 9:00am

A few photos from the games this weekend have been posted both on the Sports Signup Play app and on the OV Lax Facebook page.  

If you had missed the FAN SWAG STORE before Christmas—it has opened up again for just ONE week! The link is https://ovlax.onlineweb.shop/. (Please note: the cotton tees do run on the small side so please size up) The store will close on Sunday, January 19th. Estimated delivery for this order will be around the first week of February--plenty of time to wear your fan gear this season.

The 10U schedule has been updated on the website and the app.  (Always subject to change, though.)

To get to it on the website, go to www.orovalleylacrosse.org, sign in, go to the Teams, Youth, 10U boys and choose the Schedule in the left column. 

If you have the Sports Signup Play app, you can choose the schedule button at the bottom and scroll through the schedule.  This is where you can mark attendance as well.  When you download this app, you can log in with the same credentials that you would use for the web page, and you’ll be linked into the 10U boys page.  The app is handy for last minute communications on game day and viewing the upcoming schedule.  (The app can be sketchy at times, but for the most part it seems to work pretty good for our needs.)

League games start on Saturday, February 1.

Picture Day:  Based on the online schedule, it looks like Tuesday, February 11 at 5:00pm will be our team photo day.

Uniforms:  Please let Erin or Sara know ASAP if you have any issues with the size of your son’s uniform.

10U Information for Tournament tomorrow
by posted 01/10/2020

Hi 10U Parents,

Here are some reminders for the Tournament tomorrow.

Arrive by 1:00pm for warmups and please look for the Oro Valley Lacrosse pop up tents and flag.  The team can meet here, drop off bags and get geared up.  We’ll attempt to keep the 10U gear and bags all in one place near these tents as it can get a bit hectic with various teams and gear all sharing the same space.  One bag or water bottle can look like another!

Uniforms:  Uniforms were handed out last night at practice.  If you didn’t get yours, please let us know so we can figure out how to get it to you on Saturday.    

Games will be on Field 3 (which is where our normal practices are held.)

  • 2:00 pm, against Ahwatukee on Field 3.
  • 3:00 pm, against Chandler on Field 3B

Scoring volunteers needed:  We need scoring volunteers for the tournament.  If you have experience scoring, please let me or Erin know so we can put you in touch with the organizers and they can assign you a game to score.  You can also volunteer to score the 10U games.  If you do not have experience, there MAY be an opportunity to learn this on Saturday morning prior to the tournament start (we haven’t heard for sure on this yet.)  So, if you are interested but don’t’ have experience, let Sara or Erin know and we’ll keep in touch with you directly to let you know if there is a scoring training that will be given on Saturday morning. 

Reminders:

Please allow the coaches to coach.  We all know this already, but a reminder is always helpful.  Sometimes parents will get excited and begin to “coach” from the sideline (Yes…I have gotten this excited in the past, too!)  This can be confusing for the kids and perhaps even throw off a planned play or effort the coaches are trying to make.  Let’s show both our team and others that we can be a positive and supportive group of parents for both our boys and the coaches.

Mouthguards, cups and water bottles:  Don’t forget them!

Snacks:  Erin and Sara will be bringing snacks for the games tomorrow.  We’ll have orange slices for the boys during half times if they want them, and have drinks and post-game snacks at the tents.  These will be simple and not too sugary. 

If your son has food allergies, please let us know so we can plan for snacks accordingly.  So far we have all nuts, gluten and dairy allergies. 

For a fun day of lacrosse: Arrive early, check out the merchandise tent, grab some food truck lunch and watch a few games!  The Varsity, JV and 14U games start a 10:00 am and 11:00 am.  

Thanks and we’ll see you tomorrow!  Go Warriors!

Please call or text any last minute needs:

Sara - 520-405-4393

Erin - 520-449-3510

10U Update for the coming week
by posted 01/04/2020

Hello 10U Parents:

Thanks to all who joined the Faceoff/Draw lunch today.  It was a beautiful day out for enjoying lunch together!  There is quite a bit of information, and some contact details, below.  

Practices this week: Tuesday Jan 8, 5:30pm and Thursday Jan 10, 5:30pm.

Game this Saturday at the Oro Valley Holiday Classic Tournament: 1:00 pm at Naranja Park.  Please be to the field at 12:00pm so the boys can warm up. We do not yet know what field the game will be on, but stay tuned.  We should know this by Thursday evening practice.  If not, then an email will go out prior to Saturday noting where the team will meet up for the pre-game warmup.

Mouth Guards:  Please bring an extra mouth guard for your son in a plastic baggie marked with his name to either Erin or Sara at an upcoming Tuesday or Saturday practice (we are not always at the Thursday practices) or to the game on Saturday.  Mouth guards (and cups) seem to be the most forgotten items so we will keep the extra mouth guards together and bring them to each game as backup.

Cups: Please remember to have your son wear a cup to each game.  He will not be allowed to play without one.  Wearing them to practices is highly encouraged, too.  Not only for protection, but also to get used to wearing a cup while playing.  We will NOT have extra cups on hand.

Snacks: We will be organizing a snack schedule for the regular game season.  Snacks should be simple:  Fruit/orange slices for half time, and a simple snack and drink for after the game.  For some days we may have two games back to back where we can share snack duties.  We can split the duties for food snacks and drinks for each game.  We’ll send out a SignUp Genius once we get our game schedule in place.

Please Sign Up to help with the Oro Valley Holiday Classic Tournament:  We can use your help to make our annual Holiday Tournament on January 11 at Naranja Park a success! SignUp Genius Link  https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0a4eaeac2ba13-orovalley1

Uniforms: These are supposed to be arriving this week.  If they don’t get here before Saturday’s game, the group has some backup jerseys that the boys can wear for this Saturday’s game.

Powell team order for bags and shooter shirts: We are still having a delay with our Powell team order as well as the lacrosse bags. We hope to have them soon.  We are waiting for further communication from the Board on this.

Sports SignupPlay App: We’ve had mixed reviews on this app and how well it has been working lately.  If you have downloaded it, then you should be able to link into the team page with your normal credentials you would use to log into the Oro Valley Lacrosse web page.  Per Doug, this app has been spotty at best lately.  In the past it was a great way to keep track of attendance for games and practices but it may not be as reliable now.  You can use it to mark your attendance, but if you know you will not be at a game, please let Erin, Sara or a coach know.  The coaches need to know who will be to the games in order to plan play time for each player. 

You can always send Sara or Erin a text as well:

Sara Pike: 520-405-4393

Erin Paulow: 520-449-3510

Thanks!  And if there is any other information you are needing, please let us know.
