Hello Lady Titan LAX Family.
I know we haven’t chatted in a while (since the banquet in May). I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer. I know we have some players participating in Summer club lacrosse (Blue Lions, Major Force Lax, Nike Excelerate LAX Camps, etc…) I am really excited to see so many players working on their skills in preparation for next season.
Here’s some things to note as we get closer to the start of the school year:
- First, I was informed last week that Bryanna Hamblin and her family will be moving to the Washington DC area this summer. Losing Bry from the team will be a huge loss in both talent and leadership. I wanted to wish Bry and her family the best of luck as I am sure she’ll be playing lax in Virginia and I am excited to see how she will tear it up on the east coast. If you have a chance to get in touch with her, please let her know how much she’ll be missed.
- Second, with the loss of coaches Brian and Chris, I have been working on bringing in new coaches on to the coaching staff. As of today, we will be officially adding Coach Brian Cox (B2) on the staff to continue to work with the goalkeepers, and we will also be adding Coach Ernie Cobbett to the staff, who will taking over the defense. Coach Ernie brings a great deal of passion for the sport, and years of experience coaching girl’s lacrosse from his time as the LS United Youth Girl’s lax coach. Welcome to both Brian and Ernie to the coaching staff. If you are doing your math right, that still leaves an opening for an assistant coach for the Attack. I am still looking to backfill this position, so if any of you are interested (or know someone who may be), please get in touch with me ASAP at 816-977-5707.
- Third, there will be some additional summer and fall opportunities coming up that I wanted to make everyone aware of so you can mark your calendars:
- Heartland Lacrosse HS Girls LAX Camp: Sunday’s at 5:45pm at Shawnee Mission East HS. 9 SEPT – 30 SEPT. For details, go to http://www.kcheartlandlaxclub.com/fall-premier-academy LSW Fall Indoor Sessions: Tuesday nights from 8pm – 10pm at Lakeland Community Church. 11 SEPT – 30 OCT. Cost will be $80. This would be a great opportunity for new players at LSW to try out the sport and learn the fundamentals.
— Fall 7v7 league: Sunday afternoons in OCT. Location TBD. Last year our JV team went to the semi-finals, and our Varsity team lost to LSN in the final. This is a wonderful opportunity to get used to the speed of the game again in preparation for the spring season.
Well, I think that’s it for now. As we get closer to the school year, I am sure I’ll have more information to pass along. Enjoy the rest of your summer!!!
