This Week in Lady Titan Lacrosse - Week of 11 FEB 2019
Happy Monday Lady Titan LAX Family,
WE ARE TWO WEEKS FROM THE START OF THE 2019 SPRING SEASON!!
It’s hard to believe we are that close to this party getting started. We have a few events coming up, so I want to make sure everyone marks their calendars.
The first draft of the 2019 season is days from being declared “official”…once it is, I’ll be sending it out to everyone. We currently have 5 home games, and 5 away games on the schedule. I may schedule a couple more home game dates soon.
Here is a list of events that are coming up:
LSW Lacrosse Board Meeting (Wednesday 13 FEB at 7pm) – The LSW LAX Board will be having its monthly board meeting this Wednesday at 7pm at LSW’s Bateman Hall. For non-Board members, attendance is optional. If any of you wish to donate your time and talent to the club, we could always use the help. We have a Senior Night and an End-of-Season banquet to plan along with other events. If anyone wants to volunteer to help, come to the meeting this Wednesday and drop your name in the hat.
TEAM LOCK-IN IS THIS FRIDAY (15 FEB) 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. Parents are welcome to come hang with us as well.
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.
- Seniors will wear Neon Pink and bring sweet treats. Seniors will also be responsible for all activities.
- Juniors will wear Neon Green and bring salty treats
- Sophomores will wear Neon Yellow and bring drinks
- Freshman will wear Neon Orange and bring plates, cups, napkins, and silverware.
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.
NEW EVENT – MANDATORY PARENT MEETING (1 March at 7pm) – The annual mandatory parent meeting is scheduled for Thursday 1 March at 7pm at LSW. We have requested Bateman Hall for the meeting. Once it’s confirmed, I’ll let everyone know. I want at least one (if not both) parents of each player on the team to attend this meeting. I want to introduce the coaching staff, discuss player and parent expectations, discuss the upcoming season, out of town tournaments, etc… Please make every effort to attend this meeting. I have found this meeting is very important on level-setting expectations from both the coach’s and the parent’s perspectives.
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 STL area 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, St. Teresa’s, Sion and Shawnee Mission committed. The schedule for that weekend has been posted. I will send out the details as we get closer to that weekend.
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.
