Team Fes and Sweatt are trying to coordinate indoor time at the Foothills Sports Arena. This is the big indoor field at 285 and Kipling. Problem, EVERYONE else is trying as well..so spots are limited!
We were able reserve an hour next Sunday (March 1st) from 7 to 8am, Foothills tells me they are booked otherwise from 8am to 11pm that day! There will be a fee to collect (~$10/athlete) to cover the cost of the rental.
Coaches are lined up and willing to get the boys running, catching and possibly a scrimmage just to dust off some of the cobwebs if you are will to get your athlete to Foothills for a 7am start.
Please respond to this email yeah or nah by Sunday night the 23rd. We need to get a tally to make sure there is enough interest in attending.

2020 Spring Lacrosse
Hello everyone and welcome to the 2020 MLAX Spring Season. Your son is on the 8th Grade Fesenmeyer/Riemma team.
Earlier today we had the blind draft. Together with Pat Fairbanks (MLAX Director), Tony & I and Coach Sweatt & Mainer literally pulled names out of a hat for those who selected the blind draft. This year's full roster is below. We have a great squad and mix of returning and new players.
This week we will have a MLAX coaches meeting and will get our practice schedule and other key dates. As you know, we will be playing in AYL this year. While we do not yet know what level we will play, Coach Sweat/Manier and Dan/Tony plan to have both 8th grade teams play at the same level. I envision we will play at White level (levels go Red/White/Blue with Red being the top level). More to come on this.
We are excited to have this great team and look forward to the season which is just around the corner.
Let me know if you have any questions and welcome to the team!
