Follow-up from Meet the Coach Event
Message from Coach Ross:
Players and Parents,
Thank you so much to everyone who attended the “Meet the Coach” event last night. It was a great way to bring the girls into the program. Now that I have met some of the players I am even more excited to get started with practices.
I'm sure your daughters shared a lot of information from the folder with you. The documents from last night are below. One set of documents includes the mission and schedule. The other set of documents includes participation and health forms.
A few things for parents to be aware of:
Fall Ball Registration: Registration will open on August 15th. Make sure each of the items listed in the attached documents are completed. Note that some items need to be filled out by a doctor so don't delay. Players will not be allowed to practice until all registration items are completed. If your daughter does not plan to play fall ball please let me know. Also, if your daughter has not filled out the player evaluation please have her send this in as soon as possible: https://form.jotform.com/92096906923163.
Parent Meeting: There will be a parent meeting on Thursday, August 22nd at 7 pm at Anderson HS. Other details are still being finalized. We will discuss details of registration, fees, parent and player expectations and answer any questions. Even if your daughter is not able to play fall ball please plan to attend so you have an overview of the plan for the year and the schedule.
Spirit Store: Reminder the spirit store closes today. Please get your last orders in: www.andersongirlslax.com/spiritstore.
Required Practice Gear: Also, make sure you order your daughter’s required practice gear (blue shorts, white t-shirt, blue long sleeve, and the pair of socks). If you know of a girl who is interested in playing and wasn't at the meeting last night, tell them to order their practice gear so they can have it before the first practice. Order team practice gear here: www.andersongirlslax.com/practicegear. In addition to the required practice gear there are some optional team-only items included on this page.
Lax & Life Journal: Players will spend time during the season working on several other aspects of sports i.e. goal setting, dealing with setbacks, and performance. Here is a link to order the Lax & Life Journal: http://www.tuckerlacrosse.com/content/about-us/lacrosse-and-life-journal. We will incorporate this throughout the year. If a player is unable to purchase a book on their own, please let me know.
Trojan Charge: We are looking to have the sophomores-seniors volunteer during the 9th grade Trojan Charge on August 8th. We're hoping the girls can wear their new t-shirts and hand out flyers to 9th grade girls. If your daughter was not able to attend last night we can coordinate with you to get her a t-shirt. More details to come shortly as I discuss with the school.
Midnight Madness: Midnight Madness for the football team is Friday, August 9th. If your daughter is able to attend, we'd like to make an appearance as a team. More details to come shortly.
Again, thank you for a great kick off to the fall. Please let me know if you have any questions.
