News and Announcements
Hope everyone had a successful exam week along with some rest late into the week and weekend.
Sending out a reminder that with the beginning of semester 2 we are also returning to more lacrosse on the field.
Starting tomorrow and every Tuesday and Thursday thru to spring break we will have lacrosse at the turf.
Would ask that the jr class be dropped off for an 8:50am start and transport bus arranged to return to school.
As well, reminders of upcoming travel/tournaments:
-Mar 4-8 are the high school BC’s. Tentative plans have us travelling as a program to Coquitlam for Mar 6-8. Bussing and hotels are arranged already.
The jr program will be split into 2 equal teams as we did for the spartan Shootout in Nov. Likely similar teams with some small tweaks/changes. The sr program will go as a Gr 11 team and a Gr 12 team as we have done for that past 5 or 6 years.
Very important for the boys to get off to good starts in semester 2 for many reasons but specifically because 3 school days will be missed to attend BCs.
-Mar 29-31 Sr select team to Northwest Invitational at Mercer Island in Seattle. Team list will be posted later this week or next.
Just a reminder that those wishing to sign up for the Mar 9 SAT at Claremont need to be registered by this Friday to avoid a late penalty.
The next sitting is May 5 but it won’t be hosted by Claremont.
Obviously all gr 12’s who have not written or need to upgrade should be registering as well as gr 11’s and 10’s looking to start the process.
Please see Coach Reisig if there are any questions.
Reminder and invitation to all.
Despite the weather we are on for the annual alumni game(s) today at 4:30pm in field 3 at UVic.
Our Gr 11/12’s will be in action against current and former NCAA college players as well as professionals. See u there. Dress warm and bring an umbrella.
Hello everyone – time for a break!!
Just a quick message to all saying Merry Xmas to all of you and your families. Hope everyone enjoys the break, gets some rest and has some family time.
Here is a link to a special video done by close to 30 of our Gr 11/12 guys yesterday that was the ‘skit’ of the day. The cheers tell the story. A fantastic job done by these guys!!
Lastly want to invite all players and families to attend the annual alumni game held Fri, Dec 28 from 4:30-6:15pm at UVic. Many of our Gr 11/12 players will be playing against very talented alumni that are currently or have played in the NCAA, WLA, Jr A, and NLL as well as many more. All players are encouraged to attend.
San Diego travel group – an email will be sent soon. Intention is for you to play against the alumni Dec 28 and then two practices tentatively scheduled for Dec 31 and Jan 2. Permission forms went home yesterday and for those who missed I’ll bring to alumni game.
Las Vegas travel group – this one has snuck up on me and I apologize but Alaska will be asking for names to seats very soon as well as payment. An email with flight info will be coming ASAP so those who want to book with points can do so to save some $$
Happy Holidays to all!!!
Please see below about the current Toys for Teens campaign going on at Claremont for the holidays. Have talked to players about partnering up for $5 each to get a card and contribute as many as we can as a team. Any contributions from any player would be appreciated.
Our annual Toys for Teens Donation Drive is on until Dec 12. Claremont donates $10 Gift Cards to Teens in need in our community. We join in on The Zone 91.3’s Toy Drive which gives to the “Christmas Giving Network,” a group of local agencies in Greater Victoria such as CFAX Santa’s Anonymous, St Vincent de Paul, The Mustard Seed, Salvation Army, Times Colonist Christmas Fund and many more.
Please help donate towards our school goal of 1000 gift cards and help a Teen in our community. Gift cards for food, clothing, personal items, school supplies, etc. are welcomed. Our hope is that every student and staff member donate 1 gift card each. These will be collected in Block 2 classes or at the front office.
Thank you for your support. Happy Holidays!
