Claremont Lacrosse - weekly schedule Oct 31 - Nov 4
Hope everyone had a good weekend.
Reminder that weather pending, it is lacrosse at the school field for jr guys and turf for sr guys for Monday. Busing arranged for all to be at turf Tuesday.
Thursday the sr travel team heads east as do many jr athletes competing for Team BC to the Autumn Gold Showcase at Towson Univ. In that time Mr. Dunlop will be in charge and a brief break from lacrosse for those 4 school days will occur.
As soon as we all return the focus will turn to the Spartan Shootout and Space Needle tournament. The Spartan Shootout teams will be posted next week so all can plan – the sr team will be chosen in a closed door ’captain’s selection’ as we have done in the past few years and the jr teams will be split as evenly as possible by Chris and I. The Space Needle rosters will also be posted by the end of next week as we use the trip east as a process in the evaluation.
I have done a draft of the Spartan Shootout tournament for Nov 25/26 that I intend to send to teams for approval and then hope to post asap so all can plan. As always, this is a great weekend of local lacrosse for all and especially for our grade 12 guys as we ‘borrow’ from our U.S. friends their ‘senior night’ during our Friday Night Lights game. Parents will be included and we will do all we can to make the evening special for the gr 12’s and their families. The school, student gov’t, dancers, and staff are all part of the planning and many are talking of it already. Program sponsorship would be greatly appreciated – see site for details.
Lots has been going on behind the scenes already and we hope to be as organized as possible. This is our tournament and OUR responsibility to make sure all runs smoothly. Chris and I will be running around like crazy coaching the boys split over 4 teams. MUCH help will be needed over these two days to have this work for all so please when the volunteer schedule comes from Caroline soon please be sure to a be a part of this tournament as a parent and volunteer.
