Season Opening

What a beautiful day and weekend to open up the Fall Lacrosse season.  We hope every team has a great day out on the fields this weekend.  

Your coaches will communicate any special instructions but the boys should be at their field dressed and ready to warmup ~45 minutes prior to game time.  Some road games are not across the street so please allow for unexpected traffic to arrive on time.  The coaches have a hard time planning their lineups and rotations when they do not know if someone is on the way or not able to make the game so try to be on time if at all possible.

For those playing on the Lovinggood fields keep in mind that the first team to play is in charge of setting up which includes the following:

1. Bringing out goals and cones;

2. Bringing out scorer's table, chairs and scoreboard; and

3. Placing out the three collapsable trash cans with trash bags (1 near scorer's table and 1 on each end of spectator's side (we are adding trash cans to hopefully reduce the clean-up each weekend and keeping the grounds clean and tidy).

The last team to play is responsible for returning all of the above back into the shed and locking the shed back up.  We REALLY need the parents to assist with all of the above as the coaches will have their team to be responsible for and are already sacrificing a great deal of their time for their team and the program.  You can always consider that incentive to volunteer to coach as we love all parents to get involved.

The last thing we want to emphasize entering the season is sportsmanship.  That is not only for our boys as players, but also all of us as parents.  The coaches preach to the boys to play with head, heart and hustle and to show respect for their team, their opponent and the game.  We ask the parents to do the same.

The referees will make team conduct as well as crowd conduct a point of emphasis this year so please cheer positively for your sons but avoid any disrespect to their opponents, the opponents' parents or the referees.  If other parents are not adhering to the best in sportsmanship please do not let that affect our behavior as we want to be the standard which all other programs are judged by.  The referees will not be perfect (the same as any other sport) but they will be doing their best and have no hidden agenda.  Just understand up front mistakes are made and that is a part of the game.

We look forward to a wonderful season of lacrosse and are here to serve your sons and the High School.  Keeping in mind that we are always trying to improve the experience for all of you and your sons please let us know any problems you see or ideas you may have to improve the experience as we would love to hear from you to continue to expand the footprint of lacrosse in the Hillgrove community.  Thanks and GO HAWKS!
