Hello Lacrosse Fans,
Time to start the 2017 Girls Travel Lacrosse season!!! Lizzie Finn, Mary Rose O'Neil and Olivia Tremblay juniors at Wakefield High School and Liz Doucette and Debbie Tremblay will be your coaches this season. This is our 4th year for our 1st/2nd grade team. They will be at all the practices and teaching the girls lacrosse.
I have just a few rules for the girls that I expect from them and all the coaches as well:
1. Follow safety rules at ALL TiMES!!!!
2. They respect their teammates/coaches and the opposing teams’ coaches, players and the referees.
3. NO GIRL at any time may walk home or leave the practice area. Each girl MUST enter a car with an
adult in the parking lot of the practice area. THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS.
4. Every girl should show up to practices and games to play with the proper equipment and uniform.
5. They come to have a lot of fun!!
Each girl should have the following equipment for each practice and each game:
1. GIRLS lacrosse stick
2. eye protection - cage is probably the best choice
3. COLORED mouth guard - MANDATORY - nothing hanging out of the mouth
5. Girls lacrosse gloves (OPTIONAL) they offer a bit of protection
6. water bottle or two
g. hand warmers for those frigid practices (practices only) (OPTIONAL)
h. NO JEWELRY ALLOWED AT ANYTIME - ESPECIALLY GAMES!!!! NO EXCEPTIONS AT ALL!!!
Time: 1:00 - 2:30 p.m.
Place: Landrigan Field
We play an (8) games season, starting on Sunday, April 2nd. Our game times are on Sundays usually around 1:00 p.m. I will send an email out each week with the arrival time, game time and game location. The arrival time will be at least 30 minutes prior to the game.
For those of you who have never seen girls lacrosse before, it is completely different from boys lacrosse. There is no contact in girls lacrosse - except at the 7th/8th grade level which has a modified check of the stick - and there are different rules. It is closer to the pure lacrosse the Native Americans once played.
Please let me know if you cannot make a game or if you will be late so that we can prepare the game roster accordingly. You will be able to view the game schedule soon. I will send you the link. Take a look at the mbgll.org website for more girls lacrosse information.
My home phone number is 781-245-7734 and my cell phone number is 781-264-4500. I will carry my cell phone to practices and games. If at any time you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call or e-mail me. I look forward to FUN lacrosse season with you and most especially your girls!!!
Wakefield is fortunate to have new TURF fields that we need to show some love. We are asking that ONLY WATER IS BROUGHT TO THE FIELDS. NO FOOD OR ANY OTHER FORM OF DRINK. If we all take care of our new fields we will have them for a long time!!!
