Boys & Girls Club of Diablo Valley: Welcome
FALL SEASON WRAP UP!
Well the Thanksgiving Holiday is over and so is the Fall Ball Season.
For those of you who attended the end of the season tournament on Treasure Island on the 24th, better know as the Turkey Shoot it was a great day of lacrosse for the kids.
Just like the indoor season the players showed improvement in each game they played and just like the indoor season they finished the day with a victory over the team from College Park.
I want to thank all of the parents who contributed their time and resources to making this a great day for everybody involved.
From what I have been hearing several kids who did not play in the tournament after they heard about how much fun it was , they are also looking forward to playing in next years Turkey Shoot. So we may have two teams in the 7th Annual Turkey Shoot.
Overall the Indoor season and the Turkey Shoot where very positive experiences for the team and the program and we look forward to entering the 2014 Fall Ball season with a U17 team and a U19 team. We are making these two programs part of our overall lacrosse program in Martinez.
We are making arrangements now for the 2014 All West Showcase Tournament on July 12th and 13th that we have been invited to play in at the Morgan Hill Sports Complex. This tournament will host over 80 teams from around the West Coast.
A SHOWCASE TOURNAMENT is used by College Coaches who attend from around the US to review players in both their knowledge and skills of lacrosse while playing in a competitive enviroment against other players. This in turn may lead to possible enrollment in their respective programs. Should this tournament prove to be as good a experience as the Indoor League and the Turkey Shoot then we will also make the Showcase Tournament part of our overall lacrosse program in Martinez.
We currently have 10 players and families that are confirmed to be part of this team in 2014. Should you wish to be included on this team just let me know.
Meanwhile, I hope you all enjoy the Holiday season of 2013 and I thank you all for your support and help in making this 2013 Fall Ball season a huge success!
All players are to report on Janury 4th 2014 at the Club at 3pm to begin Strength and Conditioning/Lacrosse Skills training for the 2014 Spring High School Season.
