Claremont Lacrosse - Weekly Update Oct 14-18

Posted by Claremont Lacrosse on Oct 14 2019 at 08:03PM PDT in 2019-20

Hello all – hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and time with family.

Before going into this week just wanted to say a huge thanks to all the boys (and parents) who were up and at it early Sunday morning to marshal for the Victoria Marathon. I believe that was our 15th year volunteering at the race and once again the guys were a small part of a pretty inspiring event. As well, the comments from people involved with the race, the police, and comments in general were all very positive and the guys carried themselves very well at the race Sunday. Please bring VESTS in tomorrow morning.

A quick note of last Friday’s games at NDSS – lots of mistakes to correct and lots to work on but in general a pretty good effort and play from both the gr 9/10 teams and the gr 11/12 team. Looking forward to reviewing the video which NDSS took which we can view together and discuss.

This week will be our first aid certification for all our gr 10’s all week. In the past we have done over two days but using all 4 classes allows the boys to be certified without missing other classes. Assuming all goes well every grade 10 will have certification in first aid that can be used and added to their resumes.

Gr 9’s will have a combination of PE, strength training, and fitness – please bring cleats and runners every day.

Gr 11/12’s will have lacrosse Tues to Thur. We are very hopeful that NDSS can arrange transportation for next Thur. If they can the sr class will be scrimmaging them as we did last Fri. Time is TBA but likely 10:30-12:30.

This Fri is the beginning of a week long effort that culminates into next Wed and Thursday (Oct 23/24) annual Screamfest held at Claremont. The lacrosse group will be a big part on the setting up of the event this Fri and the take down next Thur night and Fri. It is a great community event, very scary Hall’o’ween fun, and…a good fundraiser for the school. In the past the lacrosse have been great supporters of this event and hope to see the boys do so once again next week on Wed or Thur night

Have a good week.
