News and Announcements
Hi all – hope weekend was good and exams went well. Onto semester 2 tomorrow and a fresh start for all (everybody has 100% right now). A reminder to get off to a good start, not fall behind, and establish good habits of attendance, assignments, and study habits for each class!!!
For lacrosse class we are back at the turf every Tues and Thur until high school BC’s starting tomorrow (Jan 30) – other dates are filled depending on facilities and weather with strength, fitness, PE, and other activities. As well, 3 sessions with a sports psychology specialist have been booked and am looking forward to that for all.
This week Tues (lacrosse), Wed (PE), Thur (lacrosse), and Fri (strength training).
Upcoming dates to keep in mind;
Feb 23-26 – sr travel team to Best of West tournament in Vegas
Mar 7-9 – projected dates for high school BC’s (waiting on confirmation)
And…for Denver most of the planning is done and next steps are securing flights and naming teams. This will be done asap and we will be taking two teams again likely with a mix of gr 10-12 as the makeup
Looking forward to an excellent semester 2 for all – Coach Reisig
Hi everyone – hope all had a good weekend. Lots of sickness out there so wash hands, take meds, and stay healthy!!!
Want to start by thanking Kevin Reiberger for the leadership and organization of Saturday’s bottle drive. Thx to him and the many Spartan parents, families, and players helping we as a program raised over $4,000 dollars on the day. Will likely get close to $4,500 when all is said and done. Congratulations and thx to all!! A Great team effort.
This is last week of Semester 1. For us it will be a mix of P.E., training, and for sr guys a field trip or two.
The following week are exams all week so hopefully guys are already prepping and hitting the books to do as well as they possibly can.
The following week is semester 2 and we will be back at the turf every Tues and Thur at minimum and the schedule for the month will be available soon.
Two dates to keep in mind that are in the near future;
- Best of the West tourney in Vegas for the sr team – Feb 23-26.
- High school Provincials – these weren’t looking good as of two weeks ago but some key guys in Vancouver are working hard to put together. Assuming it does all work, the dates look to be Mar 5-9 but only Mar 7-9 for teams out of town.
Happy New Year to all – hope the holidays went well for all.
A note from Kevin and the parents organizing the bottle drive this Sat – a reminder that it starts at 9:00 at Glanford Bottle Depot. Both groups were talked with today about making their best efforts to make this a success and that unless at work, sport, or something prior and important that all are expected to contribute. The plan is that all come in at 9:00 with full trucks, cars, trunks, etc and drop off – some stay to sort, some move on to get more.
Unfortunately there are approx 4 or 5 bottle drives going on in the Claremont area this weekend but we will be papering the area anyway – important on the day to make sure we only take what is allocated for us and not others (our not attached will be a different colour and easy to see).
The most important piece and I have encouraged, impressed upon, told is that ALL guys paper their own neighbourhood/area. The target from each person’s house and neighbourhood should be $50-100. If we all can bring in $300 as Mace boys did doing this format from own houses and neighbourhood then what we get around Claremont will be a bonus (I’ve already collected from my friends, my house, my parents, and I’ll have a truckload!). I have attached a document to be used around your homes. I’ll also put in your son’s hands tomorrow.
I plan on being there approx 10:00 to help.
Many of the boys in gr 12 have trucks and can drive but ideally a few more parents with trucks would be helpful too.
Thx for organizing and see some Sat.

Hope everyone is enjoying the holidays!
The Claremont Alumni game is set for Friday, Dec. 29 from 4:30pm – 6:15pm at UVic on Field 3. All grade 11/12 players are invited to come and participate if they would like. All others are invited out to watch and see some high level players that have graduated from the program.
Claremont Lacrosse was also featured in a write-up in the Saanich News!

Hope weekend went well for all.
First – want to congratulate and thank all guys and families for their help and contributions in the Toys for Teens drive held at the school. Not only did we meet the $10,000 goal as a school but our sr lacrosse guys (with help from the jr guys) won the contest for the class/group whom raised the most. Well done!!!
The last week before the break includes field trips, fun traditional xmas activities, and a little bit of fitness. Reminding guys to know the schedule and where and when to be for all days and that attendance this week for ALL classes is important.
Mon jr guys are going for a fun swim and all were told a couple times last week. Just like when we are at the turf please drop your son off at the pool for 8:50ish and I have arranged a bus to take all back to the school at 10:00. I’ll be at the school for the morning if there are 4 or 5 that need rides
Pirates is scheduled for Wed, staff Skits are Fri as well as field trips and other activities.
Looking forward to the break!!!
