Hello 3/4 Vikings,
The season starts in just 10 days! Our first practice will be Tuesday, February 25th. We have a fantastic turnout this year (19+ players!). To give our players more playing time, we’ve created two squads; black and gold. We’ll practice all together on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, but we’ll play as two separate teams during games on Saturdays. This means we need two parents to volunteer as game coaches for one of the squads. We’ll also need scorekeepers, sub coordinators and first aid people for each squad, as well.
To be clear, there is no expectation that volunteers for the squad coach role need any experience with lacrosse. JP and I will run the practices, teach the concepts, etc. The role of the squad coach is to supervise the team during the game, encourage the players, ensure there’s a parent helping run substitutions, etc. We should have refs at each game, or we’ll ask the opposing team’s coach to ref. I’ve also listed all the Saturday game days below, for reference.
I’ve divided the team into two squads with the two priorities being that kids from the same elementary school play together and kids in the BHS feeder pattern also play together. Please take a look at the squad sign up list below and put your name down for the volunteer role that you can assist with. Also, if you can volunteer as squad coach please email me directly so I can a.) thank you in person :) and b.) answer any questions you have.
Thanks for all of your support and participation to make this season happen! I’m excited to get it started!
