And we are back! Hope everyone had a lovely spring break! Now things get real.
Game time! Our first game is this Saturday at Stagecoach field (same place we practice) at 10:15. Try to have the boys dressed and ready at 9:45. The uniforms are the same as last year and I have any pieces that were ordered to distribute at practice Tuesday. Each player needs a mouthguard or we will be penalized during the game. We need a parent volunteer to work the clock/ scoring table at all home games.
Practice: from now on we will have the same practice schedule each week - Tuesday and Thursday 4:30-6 at Stagecoach field. We don't have any more indoor time so either practice will be cancelled or we will be outside at Stagecoach.
Pictures: our team pic will be taken at the beginning of practice on Thursday 3/30. Wear the uniform please with weather appropriate attire under. You can order pictures here https://www.anniecoppockphotography.com/clubteams
Rules: here are a few of the basic rules for Arapahoe Youth Lacrosse 2nd grade games (same as last year but we are now playing 10 v 10):
- No body checking - that means when the ball is on the ground or a player has possession you cannot lower your shoulder and hit. Pushing a player when they have possion (hands together, cannot be from the back or side) or boxing-out for a ball on the ground is allowed.
- Stick checking is allowed (below the shoulder, two hands on the stick)
- Ball must be passed (doesn't need to be caught) before team with possession can shoot.
- There are other details of how the game flows and you can read all that in this link but the above are unique to this age group and make the game look different from college or pros. https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.leagueathletics.com/Text/Documents/10238/78304.pdf
