News and Announcements
Hello all – hope weekends were good. Last send out for the last full week of classes this year. Hard to believe.
A very busy but very good last week with so many of our young men taking part in BC’s Best. All did very well and did themselves and the lacrosse program proud. Also fantastic to have many of our committed gr 12’s helping out as staff.
This week much of the preparation is intended for the trip to Denver that many will take part in.
Mon – jr guys lacrosse, sr guys have Kizo performance and mental/visual training
Tues – each class has lacrosse
Wed – TBA (trip prep and/or lacrosse)
Thur – Denver and regular class (PE) for others
Fri – same as Thur
The following week I am hoping to schedule some field trips and finish with some fun for the boys.
Special note – Tues, June 18 from 4:30-6:30 is the annual Claremont Athletic Awards and all lacrosse players are invited and encouraged to attend. In particular, I would hope that all gr 12’s make a point of being there. Each team will be recognized during the evening. (Parents are welcome too).
Hoping all our Claremont moms had Happy Mother’s Day yesterday! Hope your day was special and your boys spoiled you.
Calendar is posted at school and on site (http://claremonthslax.claremontlacrosse.com/clubs/2598/events). Both classes will have a combination of strength and PE activities along with lacrosse for each group on Tues and Thur this week.
Enjoy the rest of the week!
Please be reminded that hanging baskets will be delivered to the school tomorrow. Time is TBD.
Please arrange with your son for pickup and/or another format. With the wonderful weather we have now we don’t want to leave them too long in the sun.
Applications are now available for the Chris Hall Memorial Scholarship and the Shamrock Alumni Scholarship.
Applications are posted here – http://teampages.com/clubs/2598/pages/97677.
Closing date is May 22, 2019 for both.
Please note that Coaches Reisig and McKay should not be asked to write reference letters for these particular applications.
Please see Coach Reisig for any further questions.
A follow-up reminder from Coach Reisig to the Grade 12 class:
District scholarship applications are due next week.
In previous years, the deciding factors have focused more on the student’s resume and their cover letter (and reference letters).
Here’s a link to the District Scholarships
They are due on April 30. It looks like the ones that specifically pertain to athletics are:
• District Authority – physical activity ($1250)
• Ed Kubek ($1000)
As well, many athletes may be eligible for:
• Claremont PAC – Leadership ($500)
Please remind your students about the Island Savings Fueling Youth Performance Award.
It is not a district award. Athletes ages 13-18 are eligible. It is also due on April 30 and they apply directly on the link.
