Subject: Start of the 2015 Season - West Hartford Girls Lacrosse Junior Division
Happy Fourth Day of Spring!!
I just wanted to update you on how we will kick off the 2015 Season. We have several events this weekend and we would encourage your daughter’s participation.
On Saturday, all Junior (and Senior) Division players are invited to a clinic being presented by the Hall Girls Lacrosse program. The event will take place on the Hall Stadium turf from 9-11am. We are asking that a small donation ($10, suggested) be made towards the Hall program for participants at the event.
On Sunday, the Junior Division has reserved space at the Sportworld Indoor facility in East Windsor from 11am-1pm. We will be using this time to observe the girls in a variety of drills which are being organized by one of our coaches. We will be using this event to assist us in evaluating players and to create balanced teams for the season. We strongly encourage your daughter’s attendance. We understand if you have prior commitments. There is no need to notify us if your family has a conflict. Your daughter will be placed on a team. NOTE: Players trying out for the Junior Travel program are not required to attend.
For All Events: Participants are REQUIRED to have a Stick, Goggles, and a Mouth Guard. Jewelry should not be worn. Since we will be on Turf, footwear is at the option of the player. Cleats or Sneakers are both acceptable.
Looking forward. Based on the results from this weekend, the coaches will confer and determine if we have enough data to create balanced teams. We expect to make team assignments next week barring unforeseen circumstances.
As in prior years, the WH Girls Lacrosse league will have access to the Turf field at Hall High School (typically Saturday afternoons and Sundays) until the town releases the grass fields. As a league, we expect to allocate our time across divisions and teams for the Turf. These times will be Saturday afternoon or on Sunday. We will announce the times at the beginning of each week in order to allow for planning.
Thanks in advance for your support and patience after this long winter.
