Uniforms

Girls will be fitted for Lax uniforms during practice (usually in March).

Don't forget that you will want to have some sort of Under Armour or compression shorts to wear under the kilts.  (The full length kind will be appreciated for the first few games when it will still be cold out as well as a long sleeve shirt under the jersey.) 

As the weather warms the girls can wear Sofie shorts and a sports bra under to stay cool.
 
Please try to air dry the jerseys as we want to preserve the numbers and lettering as long as possible and the dryer can be rough on them.
 
Please remember also that the uniforms must be returned at the end of the season.
 
Thanks and feel free to call
Samantha Larkin with any questions.

Notes from the Coach

Game Time

  • Players should arrive to the field 45 minutes prior to game time. We will begin with team stretches and continue with warm-ups and drills before the game.
  • Please arrive dressed & ready to warm up in full uniform and with required equipment.

Practice

  • Practices will be 1 ½ hours long
  • Please arrive 15 minutes prior to the practice start time to stretch and warm-up.

Playing Time

  • Practice and preparation as a team help you win as a team. Attendance at practice is crucial to being successful as a team.
  • If a player cannot attend practice, she should notify the coach as far in advance as possible for the reason of the absence.
  • If a player misses more than 1 practice in a row, she will not start in the following game. **Players who miss only 1 practice in a given week will not be penalized in playing time, however girls who attended every practice will be given starting priority.

Multiple Sports

  • Please have open communication with the Coach if a player is committed to another sport during Lacrosse season and you foresee scheduling conflicts.
  • We will work with players’ schedules to make sure she is an active member of the Lacrosse club team while juggling other sports.
