Fall Ball 2016 (Read Before Registering!)

Hello SYL,

 

We are looking forward to another fall season of lacrosse! Please read this carefully before signing up, it will explain a lot!

 

1) "Fall Skill Development"

We will be having "Fall Skill Development" practices twice per week from Sept 5- Oct 13, registrations are open now, please sign up for your age. All practices are at Whistler Park. Depending on your player's age, they will either play Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday:

U13/15: Tue/Thur, 5:30-7pm

U11/12: Mon/Wed, 5:30-7pm

U9/10: Mon/Wed, 4-5:30pm

Little Laxers (U7/8): Tue/Thur, 4-5:30pm

 

2) Fall Game Days

In addition, we will be traveling twice for OPTIONAL play outside of Steamboat (U10-U15 only). These registrations are also open now. These days will have their own registrations and fees to cover tournament entries/costs. There is only one registration for each day, regardless of age. This is so that we don't have so many registrations, so just sign up for the game day(s) you want to play and we will split the teams by age. The regular "Fall Skill Development" is a prerequesit for these game days, you must be signed up for "Fall Skill Development" to play. These teams will be first-come-first-serve, and limited to 13 per squad:

Sunday, Oct. 2: 7v7 Round-Robin in Frasier Valley (Frasier Valley Sports Complex, games with Frasier Valley and another opponent or two, 2-3 games)

Sunday, Oct. 16: Vail Valley Lacrosse Club 7v7 Tournament in Eagle (Eagle Fairgrounds, 3 game minimum)

 

Remember: STARTING AUGUST 31ST, YOUR PLAYERS ARE NOW AN AGE DIVISION HIGHER THAN THIS LAST SPRING OR SUMMER. So, if you were U10, you are now U11. If you were U11, you are now U12, and so on. Remember, if you are U14, we consider that U15.

 

Please email steamboatyouthlacrosse@gmail.com with questions. 

 

Thanks,

Andy Flax

Wall Ball Challenge!

Dear Lacrosse Parents,

 

We have a lot of challenges as a lacrosse program, including, but not limited to:

· lack of population base in Routt County

· 3 hour drive from population center

· snow 6 months a year

· lack of turf fields/indoor facilities

 

We have created a Wall Ball Challenge that we hope will help improve our stick skills individually and as a group (The Challenge is written out below this email, as well as on steamboatyouthlacrosse.org). If we show up with better stick skills than any team that we play, we will always be competitive despite the challenges listed above.

 

Stick handling does not improve without a lot of practice. Good stick handling is usually a direct reflection of the effort that a player puts into it. As a program we have some good stick handlers, but arguably not a single advanced stick handler at any age group.

 

The Wall Ball challenge measures where a stick handler stands at a moment in time. The challenge itself will not improve stick handling, but consistent practice on a wall or with a partner will. 

 

We hope the kids get motivated to improve and have fun with this challenge. Keep in mind that the players that are the least interested in Wall Ball are the players that probably need it the most. If you have any questions regarding this challenge, please email Neill Redfern at 

 

Good luck! Thanks, Neill, for putting this together!

 

Andy and Jake Flax
