Good morning Warrior parents and players,
Your Warriors Executive is working hard on improving our club and want to provide you with some important updates before Christmas as we look forward to our 2019 season. First of all, thank you to those who reached out to Amy, our new equipment manager, and made arrangements for returning some more equipment. Also, thank you to those who attended our AGM and volunteered for important roles. Check out our website under "contact" for details on our executive and operations oles and feel free to reach out to any of us anytime. We are constantly striving to improve the communication within our club and league.
Our player registration should be open the week before Xmas and we look forward to seeing our returning players register early and many new ones too. We have had a few schools in our zone opt in for the ‘lax in school’ days hosted by the ALA and have had good response and an uptick in new player inquiries as a result.
Calling all coaches! We are now accepting all applications for coaches this season. Please go to the website under the coaches tab and download an application to complete and email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for our “A” teams applications will be Jan 15th so that we can arrange interviews for those 3 division coaches with multiple applicants. We will make the selection via a standardized interview process and make the selections in a timely manner well before player evaluations begin. This will include Leduc coaches as they are a part of our ‘A’ team quadrant. All Warrior coaches will also register online through RAMP in January so that the club can perform the police information checks for all bench staff.
We need more female coaches! We are trying to grow the game for girls playing and realized only 10-15% of our club is female coaches. You don’t need to be a lacrosse player or have played lacrosse to coach at the minor level. We will support you with training, practice plans and mentorship. The best coaches are the ones who are focused on ensuring the players have fun, learn discipline and show sportsmanship. Please check out the requirements link, create your CLA NCCP profile and get started!
Come try lacrosse! We are happy to sponsor the 2018 Confederation Hockey Tournament Dec 27-30. We will have an information table set up and some gym times available during the tournament to come try playing lacrosse. Stay tuned to the website and Facebook page for details. There is also drop in lacrosse available in some age groups in Leduc and St. Albert and Sherwood Park. Check the Crush, Rams and Titans Facebook pages for more details.
Our sport is the fastest game on two feet and so much fun to play that we want your player to recruit friends to play. Please promote the www.warriorslacrosse.ca website and Facebook page as a way to get the information out there and help build our club. Thank you for your continued support. Stay tuned for further communication and have a Merry Christmas and a safe holiday season!
President, South Edmonton Warriors Lacrosse Club
