Hello Grade 3 Boys Lacrosse Families,
Welcome to lacrosse season! Grade 3 Boys lacrosse has had an impressive registration. Twenty-five boys are currently registered. We are going to have a blast!
Practice will be 5:30 – 7:00 on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at the Nut Plains Field. The season is scheduled to start March 29 and run through June 5. We may also attempt to get some mid-late March practice dates if the GHS turf is available…stay tuned.
With the number of players, we have decided to split the roster into 2 teams for game play. This will maximize playing time for everyone. For game play, the ‘Green’ team will be coached by Ken Alberti, Geoff Close, and Kate Close; 'White’ will be coached by Nate Jacobson and Megan Borelli. During practice, teams and players will be coached together.
Players will need helmet, shoulder pads (must meet new NOCSAE standard), elbow pads, gloves, and lacrosse stick.
Players should also have a mouth guard, cup, cleats, and water bottle.
Games will be played on a smaller field with 8 on 8. Teams will have a goalie, 2 defenders, 3 middies, and 2 attack. Players are allowed to stick check, but not body check.
We look forward to leading this squad of eager athletes! Our focus will be teaching lacrosse fundamentals while competing in a fun & respectful fashion!
If any questions or concerns come up throughout the season, please contact us. Looking forward to a great season!
