This Week in Lady Titan Lacrosse - Week of 4 FEB
Happy Monday Lady Titan LAX Family,
We are in the final few weeks of our 8 indoor practice sessions. Our first-year players are now starting to participate in scrimmages with the veterans and are starting to get a feel for the game. Once they get a few more scrimmages under their belts, they’ll have a better understanding of the game when we get outdoors on the full-sized field.
We have completed our pictures for the 2019 program. If your daughter missed out on these pics, we can either use a pic from last season if she’s a returning player, or there will be no picture if she’s a new player.
The first draft of our 2019 Spring season has been posted for our review. By no means is this the final draft yet, so I am not ready to share it with all of you. We have reviewed our schedule and do not see any conflicts. We are waiting for all the other teams in the league to review theirs as well in case there are some changes that need to be made. As soon as the schedule is final, we’ll share it. We will have 10 games scheduled between 27 March and 2 MAY, so once the season starts, we will be very busy. Hold on to your hats, folks.
As for team information, there’s not much new information to post this week. Here are the key dates of things coming up this season:
Team Lock-in on 15 FEB 2019 at Lakeland Community Church. We will be spending the night as a team (this will include members of the coaching staff) overnight Friday night into Saturday morning. Here are the details:
Start time is 8pm. We will leave no later than 10am the next morning.
VERY IMPORTANT – NO NUTS OF ANY TYPE CAN BE BROUGHT IN AS SNACKS. WE HAVE A PLAYER WITH A NUT ALLERGY.

Also, make sure to bring pillows, blankets, phone chargers, etc….
Start of Spring Season / Varsity Tryouts – The official start of the Spring 2019 season is 25 FEB 2019. We will be moving our practices to LSW on Mondays through Thursday’s from 5pm – 7pm. Our practice field will be the field directly behind the tennis courts. We will be having our Varsity tryouts on Monday through Thursday of that week (25-28 FEB). Here’s a list of all things that MUST be completed prior to 25 FEB or you will NOT be allowed to take the field:
• US Lacrosse Membership – must be valid to around 1 JUNE 2019.
• Current Sports Physical – must be uploaded into PRIVT website.
• All dues paid.
Lee’s Summit vs Omaha / Des Moines Playdate on 29-30 MARCH. They will travel to LSMO and we’ll have a small tournament where each LS team will play each Omaha/Des Moines team. All 3 Lee’s Summit girl’s teams will be playing, and as of right now there are 2 teams from Omaha/Des Moines committed to play. This is supposed to be a Varsity-level tournament, but the position coaches will be deciding which JV players they will want to invite to participate as the date gets closer.
KC vs STL Playdate on 5-6 APRIL. Our Varsity team will travel to St. Louis to play 3 STLarea teams (1 on Fri night, 2 on Sat). As of right now, the 3 STL area teams are Lafayette, Cor Jesu and Parkway West. From KC, we have LSW and St. Teresa’s committed, and we are waiting on the 3rd team to commit.
On another note, I want to send a huge “Congratulations” to our lacrosse family members who are the Westside Girls who placed 2nd in Poms and 5th in Jazz at Nationals this week. Congrats to Rebecca Danforth and Jada Graves on your success!!!
That’s it for now. If anyone has any questions, please let me know. If you still owe money for the indoor sessions or for the season dues, please get your payments to Mr. Rasdall in Room 0184 as soon as possible.
Have a great week. Feel Free to contact me with any questions.
