News and Announcements
Photos have been added from the trip to the Autumn Gold tourney in Baltimore and NYC.

Finally – we look to be set. Claremont school will be hosting SAT sittings both Dec 1 and Mar 9. Dec 1 only has 50 seats and Mar 9 will have 100.
Go to SAT College Board to register.
Our school code is 94487.
For the Dec 1 sitting you must register by Fri, Nov 2 at midnight to avoid the late penalty fee.
I recommend all 11 and 12’s with any thought at all of possibly going south for school to look to write at least one time, maybe both. Recognize that the Seattle tourney is in conflict for some guys but that was beyond our control.
The Mar 9 sitting should have no conflict as High school BC’s are slated for Mar 6-8 and we will be home that evening.
More details available in attached document.
Any questions let me know or have your son talk to me.
Thx – Darren

Hope everyone had a great weekend – thanks to all the guys (and parents) who contributed to making our school’s Screamfest a huge success for the school and the community and as well for the many guys who supported it by attending one of the two nights.
Fri was a successful first couple of games of the year in Nanaimo. NDSS were great hosts and the games were an opportunity to shake some rust off and also see what needs to be worked on moving ahead prior to trip East, Spartan Shootout, and the Space Needle tournies.
Mon and Tues will be lacrosse. Mon is at the school, Tues is at the turf (jr class please be dropped off)
Wed is PE/Fitness
Thur and Fri – PE/Strength training
This Thur the Sr travel team leaves for Baltimore to take part in the Towson recruiting trip called Autumn Gold and then spend 2 days in Times Square and New York before heading home on Tuesday, Nov 6. Will be an exciting trip as it always is!! Those players – a reminder that permission forms and waivers are needed to be returned to me asap.
Looking ahead to Mon and Tues next week the Gr 10 guys will be receiving their first aid training and Level 1 certificate. Great resume builder and invaluable training to have. They will need to talk with their block 2 teachers as they will need to miss that class Mon and Tues but will have Wed block 1 to use to make up missed learning.
There are now more Thrifty Smile Cards available. Several parents mentioned back in September that they would like some.
These are not prepaid, and are an excellent way to contribute to the lacrosse program.
You can load the card with whatever amount you choose, and then reload again when
Please contact me at email@example.com with the number of cards you want
and the name of your player, so I can give them to Darren to pass on to the boys.
Thank you for your support!
Hope all enjoyed the continued good weather this weekend – sadly, looks like that may end soon.
This week we continue to prep and get ready for upcoming competition with both levels of the program – coming soon for the guys going back east, and our tourney, as well as the Space Needle tournament are coming up quick (btw – tentative lineups for those as well as San Diego and Vegas for the senior teams will go up at some point this week).
Mon – lacrosse at the school
Tues – jr lacrosse at the school, sr lacrosse at the turf – fortunate again to have a college coach visiting and watching the guys practice (Coach Mark Myashita from D1 Canisius will be with us for the day)
Wed – PE/Fitness
Thur – lacrosse at the turf (like last week jr guys to be dropped off at 8:50ish)
Fri – TBA
As well, if you have not heard yet we have a huge school event going on Thur and Fri night called Screamfest. It is an awesome event and well worth attending. In its 10th year and 2nd at Claremont not only is this an amazing community event that is great for the school and district it is also a fantastic fundraiser. Last year almost 1500 students came thru in the 2 days/nights. Many of our sr students are volunteering and running games for the two nights. Our hope is that all students attend Fri night and have a great time. Tickets have been and will be available all week for $10.
Have a good week!
