**FUNRAISING OPPORTUNITY

Thanks to everyone who donated to not only the Facebook Shed Fundraiser but the many others who donated directly to the youth program. All the generosity within our community to help make Avon Youth Lacrosse a success is so very much appreciated. To date we have raised enough money that we are now only $1,500 short of our goal to purchase the storage shed. We have opened this gofundme fundraiser in the hopes to achieve that goal so that we can have the shed installed before the start of the season. Any donation is appreciated and we thank everyone for helping make the Avon Youth Lacrosse program a success. Link below.

Since our Avon Youth Lacrosse program began more than 5 years ago, each year more and more kids have joined the program. Because of the great success our community has had getting our kids to participate, this allowed us to create more teams so all of our kids have an opportunity to play this great sport. With more teams, comes more equipment we need to store such as goals, scoring tables, field markers, extra player equipment, etc. We are in need of a storage shed so we can store all our "lax stuff"  during the season as well as the off season. The shed will be located at Veterans' Memorial Park allowing easy access for coaches to get to the equipment when needed.  We started this fundraiser so that we might be able to raise the money needed through donations, any help you can give would be greatly appreciated and will go only towards the storage shed cost. The link to donate is above.  We are only $1500 short of our goal.

 

 

**2019 LACROSSE SIGN UPS ENDING SHORTLY. PLEASE SIGN YOUR CHILD UP IF THEY ARE INTENDING ON PLAYING.

 

**PROGRAM UPDATES**

**BOYS YOUTH** Currently capped out at 30 kids. Sign ups accepted but put on a waiting list should a boy decide to not play.

**MIDDLE SCHOOL GIRLS** The registration for MS Girls will be capped at 26. We have 3 spots remaining. Sign up now to resolve your spot!!

**YOUTH GIRLS** We are now pondering having 2 Girls Youth Teams due to a higher interest. We are still looking for additional girls to complete the rosters. If we get a few more girls we will look at 2 teams. If not, we will look to add an additional tournament. If a second team comes about we will be looking for another Youth head coach.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________

For those of you new and old to Avon Eagles Youth Lacrosse, here is a brief heads up on what to expect in the coming weeks months ahead:
 

Practice

  • Winter Practices: We begin indoor training at a local facility which runs from approximately mid-January through March.
  • Our season usually commences in Early April and runs through about Memorial Day and consists of weekly practices, games and tournaments.

Gear

  • For those new to the sports, we suggest asking friends and neighbors who may have an older player that may have outgrown their gear and are delighted to get it out of their garage/basement.
  • For those needing new equipment we have a couple of online resources that many have enjoyed using in the past, we will share when registration opens soon.

Coaches

We are always in need of Coaches and Assistants , High School players needing to fulfill service hours "teach another kid to play" and various Volunteer roles, Dads and and Moms are the lifeforce that makes the program operate!  Only a small few of our current coaches have ever played Lacrosse before! Most of us have never picked up a lacrosse stick before in our lives until our sons or daughters showed an interest in playing.  But technology saves the day again with plenty of great instructional videos on YouTube by college or professional players and certainly US Lacrosse (which membership is required for a small fee), that provides great how to videos and offers coaching classes. Personally my last fours years have been so rewarding working with the players and their familes, learning and growing with them!   We are not asking anyone to step into a head coaching position, we have enough of those for now. Just a few parents to be their Assistants or Team Parents to coordinate communication or to manage snacks or tournament refreshments. If you have ever coached or played any sport, you already know what to do and that is to teach and be supportive of the players and that is the reward!  It is why I sit and write you this today, for the love of the sport and most importantly, to teach kids to have fun and learn the discipline to excel in team sports and life…...
