Welcome to Tyke 2 for the 2018 Season
Hello Tyke 2 Parents,
For those of you who don’t already know me, my name is Chris Veenstra. If you are receiving this email, your son or daughter is on my Tyke team for the upcoming lacrosse season. We will known as Tyke 2 on team pages and the CMLA website. This email is meant to give a quick update for this season.
The ice is coming off of Twin Rinks this week so each team was able to get some practice time this weekend. Our first practice at Twin Rinks will be this Sunday, April 8th from 10:30 to 11:30 AM. This will be with all of the other Tyke Teams as well. The rest of the schedule including practice times and games should be finalized within the next few days. I will send an email as soon as I get an update. Please expect to have our first game on April 14th or 15th, likely in the morning sometime.
This is my 4th season coaching and I am really looking forward to this season. We have a good mix of new players and returning players and a few parents that have stepped up to help coach this year. There are 3 Tyke teams this season so most of our practices will be with one other Tyke team at each floor time. This allows the kids to have more practice time during the season and it allows us to have anywhere from 3 to 6 coaches on the floor each time.
I have not filled the position of Team Manager yet, so if there any volunteers, please send me an email letting me know if you are interested in this coveted position.
Also, for most of the players, I have only been sent one of the parent’s email address. If you want your spouse added to the email list, please e-mail me directly.
I have applied for a couple different tournaments this season and will hopefully get confirmation soon if we have been accepted into one of them. I will not have time to plan fundraising so if any parents have good fundraising ideas and want to take the lead on that, please let me know. Otherwise, everyone should plan to pitch in approximately $40 per player per tournament.
That’s all for now. More updates to follow once we get our schedule confirmed in the near future. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me by e-mail or on my cell at (604) 819-0929.
