News and Announcements
Happy Sunday to all – hope everyone had a chance to get warm and catch their breath after an awesome weekend of lacrosse for Claremont.
40 games in 26 hours of play and 13 games played by the Spartans with only one blemish is awesome. Hope all enjoyed that one weekend of play where all boys get to play at ‘home’ for the year.
Congratulations to our gr 12’s and their families for a fantastic evening Fri night for the school, the program, and all of you and your families. Glad to be a part of the celebration and proud of you all!! As a bonus the high level of play and victory made the night perfect!
Huge thanks to all for their help in making this tourney a success on and off the field – without parent help the many jobs that are needed to be done would be impossible for a successful tourney and well run tourney. Also very special to see alumni and alumni parents at the fields and also willing to help. For our 13th year I’d say it was a hit.
I’m probably gonna miss a few but….at the risk of that special thx to:
- Caroline Mace and Lindsay Pepper for the coordination and organization of volunteers
- Phil Ohl and Chelsea Giordano (staff) for their coordination an announcing of FNL
- Mike Verhagen, Glen Manns, Chris Sheridan, and the others (sorry, I know there is more) who took charge of setting up, taking down, and running fields during tourney
- Cheryl Brown (alumni parent) for her help with sponsorship and FNL
- Michelle Glanfield for the production of the program
- Rauvy Dalep for running website and communication
- Nate Chiasson for his help coordinating referees
Thx to all and apologies for any I may have missed.
PE for both on Mon and Wed
Lacrosse for both on Tues an Thur.
Fri Seattle travel teams depart on 9:00 am ferry (permission forms to come home tomorrow) and guys here will have strength training
Rosters and schedule for the weekend are now available on the site on the Spartan Shootout 2018 page
Most games are clear as to if they are team 1 or 2 but…to avoid confusion:
-Friday Night Lights (FNL) is for gr 12’s (parents please be at game no later than 7:30)
-there is a just gr 11 game prior to FNL
-the jr team playing Coq club Sat will be the jr guys heading to Seattle next weekend as a warm-up game
Will want ALL guys to be a part of the fun Friday night so will be expecting them to be in attendance.
Hope that when Caroline sends out volunteer schedule that all families get behind this – a tournament of this magnitude is too much for the coaches and just a few parents to run. NEED ALL families to help in some way.
Transport to and from games will be up to each family to arrange. We want the guys there ready to go a minimum of 30 min prior to their game. Will also be needing help from guys setting up and cleaning at start and end of each day.
Cross your fingers for good weather.
Looking forward to a great weekend of lacrosse with your sons – see you at the field(s).
