Greetings and Happy New Year!
Let me introduce myself...I'm Coach Doug Charters. I coach the girls HS and Boys 8U program and the Vice President of Girls Lacrosse for the Oro Valley Lacrosse Club.
I'll be working with our COED 8U Developmental Team this year to get you guys going in the right direction!
I know it's a little late, but I wanted to let you know that we are still planning on starting your budding "laxthlete" with practice starting January 5th (Tuesday), 530-630pm at Naranja Park.
We will normally practice on Tuesdays & Thursdays from 530pm - 630pm. We will have either a scrimmage or practice on Saturdays, 8-9am. All practices and games will be at Naranja Park (Field 3 - Northwest Field). The website should be the one stop shop for you to know about schedules, but we pride ourselves on communication, so you'll see emails (that will also be available as "team news" on the website), and we have a facebook/instagram/twitter account for you to follow.
We have an all-star lacrosse expert high school staff that will be the "subject matter experts" in the field and they are posted on our website.
What we so strongly desire is some parents to step up and help with that ever-more-important ability to wrangle these budding stars! There is absolutely zero lacrosse skills needed, but you will find that "parent coaching" helps us keep a fun and motivating practice, while our high school coaches learn from you and teach this awesome sport as well.
Please consider replying to this email with your interest in being the "parent coach" alongside our high school experts to provide a positive team environment our young athletes deserve so much!
1st practice checklist
- Wear some "weather appropriate" workout cloths
- Bring some water (we cannot share or provide water)

Another email this weekend....
