Under The Lights Game

LHYL members,
Next Friday, May 29, is the second annual Under The Lights boys high school game.  Litchfield Hills High School team vs Wamogo High School. 8:00PM game time at Bantam field.

LHYL will have the merchandise table set up as well as have snacks and drinks for sale. Pack up the family and some chairs and come enjoy a great night with great people!
Last year we had a huge turnout and we hope to repeat that this year.  

Many of the players from both teams have come up through the Litchfield Hills youth program. This year we are especially proud of 2 Seniors who played with LHYL for many years.  Sean Wright from Hills who joined us a Lightning in 2008 and Andy Shepherd from Wamogo, who was a Bantam in our very first year in 2006! 

Come, enjoy the fun and watch the last ever high school lacrosse game for the Seniors. 
LHYL: Matt Longo, Eric Pelletier, Sean Wright
Wamogo: John Kilbourn, Riley McAlpine, Patrick Noonan, Sean Scanlon, Andy Shepherd

Special thanks for putting this together goes to the LHYL Board of Directors and volunteers, Daniel "Boomer" Parsons and the Bantam Civic Association, John Threlfall, Wamogo Athletic Director, the players and coaches of both teams and ALL of the parents and families.

SUMMER LAX

LHYL members & friends,

I know it’s hard to believe, feels like Spring just started, but summer is just weeks away and with it.... NWC summer ball!

We again will be offering 3 programs for summer lax for upcoming 9th graders and older.

Registration is now open for our NWC (NorthWest Corner) Summer Lacrosse.

Three groups:

NWC Men’s High School and up - for incoming freshmen and older (U30) - on Tuesday nights

NWC Men’s League – 30 and older - on Wednesday nights - less "intense" for us older guys...

NWC Women’s High School and up - for incoming freshmen and older - on Thursday nights

All groups are "pick-up" style, there are no coaches. Players show up, we throw sticks in a pile and split into two teams and play!

If we get a lot of players, we go into 3 teams and do round-robin - 3 shorter games.

Games have certified referees and rep’s from LHYL are on hand to supervise.

$50 registration fee covers insurance, fields, paint, balls, referees, and NWC reversible pinnies.

These are not “elite” leagues playing other clubs, nor instructional clinics.  They are designed as friendly, for-fun summer games for rising high school athletes, college kids and adults of any skill level to have some fun, get a good workout in, and keep lax skills sharp.  A referee will strictly enforce rules, particularly prohibiting "take-out" checks, unnecessary roughness, etc.  Such activities will result in immediate expulsion from the program. All players must be in proper, legal equipment.

We are looking at “Old Man's" league starting on Wed, June 10,  Men’s High School+ league starting on Tues, June 16, and Women’s on Thurs, June 18.  We go for 7 - 8 weeks with make-ups for rain-outs.

Men’s games are played at Bantam Civic Association field on Route 209 in Bantam, 6:15PM starts.

Women’s games are played at Morris Town Beach field, on East Shore Road in Morris, 6:15PM starts.

Goalies are always desperately needed.  Any and all goalies interested in playing and in a free registration should contact Jeff Porter.  Contact info below.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact:

Men’s:  jeff.porter@litchfieldlacrosse.com 860-483-0046

Women’s:  john.long@litchfieldlacrosse.com 860-919-7883

REGISTER HERE

We will be sending out a reminder notice in beginning of June.

volunteers

LHYL members,
As you all know, LHYL is a volunteer organization that relies on the Board and its membership to keep running.  The running of the organization has always been handled by a handful of dedicated folks, but as time has gone on our membership has grown, along with responsibilities, and we are spreading thin....

We are looking for help in a couple different areas. Please read below and if you are able to help out, please email Jeff Porter at or talk to your child's coach or a Board member.

Thank you

COACHES:
Volunteer coaches / assistant coaches are always needed, even if you haven't played the game you can help out by aiding coaches running stations at practices or simply by keeping the kids inline (literally).
Boys Juniors, Girls Lightning, and Boys iLax are currently in need of good, level-headed coaches/assistant coaches.
Contact Jeff Porter if interested and I can tell you what is involved.

WORK CREW:
From time to time we need work done at the fields or items transported here or there. We need weekly help in-season in keeping the lines at all of our fields painted.  Even if we had one or two parents who would split the task of refreshing the lines at Bantam and/or Morris fields once a week that would be a huge weight off of coaches who try to fit that in to their already busy schedules. 

HOME GAME CREWS:
We would like to get back to having tables set up at our home games at the various fields to sell various items like drinks, snacks, etc, and logo gear like hats...
Believe it or not, it puts quite a bit of money in the kitty by the end of the season for the Club, BUT we need folks to run it: Set-up, breakdown, and split time "working" at the table for the games. One or two parents from each team and we would be all set!

TEAM PARENT:
A parent (or two) that can help the coach, when needed, for things like handing out and recording uniforms, collection of the same, handling the team water for games

MANAGERS/STAT KEEPERS:
Very helpful for the U15 and High School level teams.
