General Information 2018 -2019 Season

General timelines and information:

- We do not have tryouts. All are welcome, including newcomers who have never played the game. Ability and attitude will determine playing time and varsity/jv.

- We will start spring practices approximately Feb 1st. Approximately from 4 to 6 pm. 5 days per week until the season starts on March 1st, and the season runs through May 1st for JV and May 19th for varsity. Once the season starts we typically have varsity practice 5 days/week and JV 3 days/week.

- We will try to do an optional 7 on 7 tournament at the end of the summer (Aug 11), so we'll have a few practices in the weeks leading up to that. This might be for rising 9th to 11th graders only, I'm still negotiating whether we can have rising seniors play.

- We will try to do an optional fall tournament in mid-October. We'll do some practices leading up to that as well.

- Approximate costs for the program will be $395 for all players (no difference in varsity and jv this year), plus a one-time uniform cost of $185 for new players (they keep everything and can re-use for future years.) We will collect this in the fall, when we have a parent/player kick-off meeting.

- We will be collecting all fees (for the season and uniforms) in our kick-off meeting in the fall, so please be budgeting appropriately to pay in full by October. We will only be accepting checks, no credit card payments (we will save the club $1,000 in credit card fees by doing it this way.)

 

Some good things to do this summer:

- MBA league for rising 9th to 11th graders. I f you are interested a few other parents have expressed interest, both for rising 10th graders, you can contact them: Jessica Singley and Phil Garner.  https://www.montgomerybell.edu/page/camps/camps--special-programs/lacrosse-leagues

- We'll do some impromptu pick-up games, probably on Sunday nights. Watch emails for announcements.

- The goals and bounceback are at the practice field all year, so go shoot and practice on the bounceback. The practice field is close to the soccer fields in the front of the school, you will see the lacrosse goals on it.
