Happy 10th Anniversary!
Spring of 2015 will be our TENTH yearoffering opportunities to play the fastest sport on two feet
for the following groups:
Boys youth (2nd - 8th grade)
Girls youth (2nd - 8th grade) Boys high school club
Girls high school club
and iLax, our developmental program.
In the summer of 2015 we will host our
6th year of Northwest Corner Summer Men's Lacrosse for high school and older players
4th year of 30-and-up Northwest Corner Summer Men's Lacrosse for the "older" crowd
and 2nd year of Northwest Corner Summer Women's Lacrosse.
I know everyone is wondering and asking about practice schedules going forward. As many of you know, we are normally on outside fields by this time. This year, winter just won't let go and our fields are nowhere near ready.
We are frantically trying to get times at different indoor and turf facilities and get practice schedules put together for everyone. Bear with us.
If anyone would like to donate the construction of a turf facility, I can meet you for lunch! I'll buy!!
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.
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.
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!
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
Very helpful for the U15 and High School level teams.
As many of you know, Connecticut now has a professional men's indoor lacrosse team, the Black Wolves, out of Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville.
