How's Your Summer Going???

Posted by Jay Hertzler at Jul 13, 2018 7:14AM PDT ( 0 Comments )

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!!!

FIRST EVER WOMEN'S SUMMER LACROSSE LEAGUE

Posted by Jay Hertzler at May 26, 2018 7:36AM PDT ( 0 Comments )

Lady Titan LAX Family,

I just received this email from our KC Metro Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) representative, who is also the head lacrosse coach for the Blue Valley Girls team. This looks like a wonderful opportunity for players to get some lacrosse in over the summer in a small-game format. I will not be coordinating, so if you are interested, reach out to teammates and build a couple of teams and have fun!!!. Information below:

KC Women’s Lacrosse Summer League

Sponsored by: FCA Lacrosse Midwest

Hey KC Women’s Lax!

Get excited for Kansas City’s first ever summer women’s lacrosse league. My name is Kallie (Britton) Muck and I grew up playing lacrosse for the BV Titans as well as local club teams before having the opportunity to play NCAA Division I lacrosse back east at Liberty University. I moved back in the area and had the chance to coach the JV and Varsity BV Titans this spring. I am excited to be back in the area to help the sport of lacrosse grow!

I currently serve as the Director of FCA Lacrosse Midwest; my desire is to fill the needs of coaches as well as the lacrosse community as a whole. And one of those needs seems to be providing playing opportunities for adults (those who are 18 years and older). Engaging women as coaches, players, and ambassadors will improve the game and the lacrosse culture for future players here in Kansas City.

We are now accepting full team, small groups, and / or individual players “free agents.” If you are signing up solo we will place you on a team. All players 18 and older are welcome to join the league. We also invite graduating 2018 high school seniors.

Hello Lady Titan LAX Family,

As we go into the last week of the school year, I wanted to send out the final email until we start lacrosse back up in September. I know I’ll see most of you this Tuesday evening for the End of Season LAX Banquet, but I also wanted to express my appreciation for a phenomenal 2018 season. Last Thursday we played our Boy’s vs Girl’s game, and I think all the players had a wonderful time…and judging by some of the laughing from the stands, it sounded like the parents were having fun too. I am glad we had a chance to get that game in…it’s always a favorite event of the players.

Here is what’s coming up for this week:

Monday 21 MAY – Nothing
Tuesday 22 MAY – End of Season LAX Banquet. Dinner will be served at 6pm in the LSW Commons. We are scheduled to start our actual banquet at 7:30pm in Bateman Hall. This will be the first year we use this format of both the boys and girls eating at 6pm, then splitting up into 2 separate places for our actual banquet. This year, the boys will be in the PAC, and we will be in Bateman Hall. I have attached the RSVP form just in case you have not turned one in yet. Please make sure to get this form (with payment) to Mr. Rasdall ASAP if you have not paid.

After the banquet, we’ll be officially done. This is always a tough time of year for me because we have been going full speed for months, only for it to come to a screeching halt. My plan is to relax over the summer and be ready to go on Sept 11th, which is the first day of indoor lacrosse at Lakeland Community Church. I hope to see all of you there…recruit and bring new players if you can.

For those of you interested in summer lacrosse, make sure you do your research and join a club that fits you best. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me.

Thank you again for everything this season. I feel both lucky and blessed to be a part of this program, and I have all of you to thank for that. Go Titans!!!

See you Tuesday.
~Coach Jay
