OV Warrior Girls Parents -
Long time, no update...sorry, but, lots of good info in this one. This will be on the team news page on the website as well.
We've got 12 registered on our 14U team and that's great (as we play with 12 in games), but that will be very tiring for everyone. Good news is we have some very strong 11U players, 3 of them, that I think will be great to fill in for a 14U this year. I'd like to ask for some parent help in advertising for OVLC to see if there are some more that would like to join the teams this year.
- Adding three 14U players would certainly help out this season with schedules, etc. It's definitely not too late!
- Adding seven (tall order I know) 11U players would allow our 11U to field a full OV team at this level (8 play on the field at this level) Come have your friends try it out!
OVLC offers a potential player to try us out for a practice or two before they register. Team friends are sooo much fun and needed in our lives. Please reach out to friends and parents that might be interested in playing!
Season Schedule (about 90%)
From the weekends below, we will play two games at the respective field. The games are generally in the morning and not before 9am. Currently, we will ask our 11U to help out the 14U play together. If you know there is a conflict, please reply back as soon as you can. We get it that there might be some and the earlier we can work things out with the league the better.
Why only one weekend in Tucson, Coach? I'm sorry that it worked out this way, but we are only one club and the furthest away from the others. For most of the weekends, they are in south Phoenix, which does save significant time.

There are a couple ways to get this info on your phone, if you would like. 1st is to download the SIPlay app and log in with your credentials that you use for the website. This is highly recommended as it not only has the schedule, but rosters, contact info, and messaging. It's a bit buggy though. 2nd is to go to the website and subscribe to a "feed" for your personal calendar. There is a general event for each of the weekends above as the schedule hasn't come out. Both will have pretty instant feedback on changes or games scheduled for the weekend.
Mouthguards and other things we need to get ready for the first games
We need to start practicing with mouthguards. They are a required item for games. With that, if your athlete could also have their uniform top for each practice, that would be helpful in splitting up during practices.
I have ordered the kilts that we are missing for those that don't have them. I am hoping that they come in by the first game, but in case they don't, feel free to wear a dark colored short.
Lets turn it up during practices as we are 19 days away from the first weekend!
PS The weekend of February 27th is scheduled to have an ASU Women's Lacrosse Game played at home. The time is TBD. My family is looking into a staycation that weekend in Phoenix to not only go to that, but also to a spring baseball game, conditions permitting.
