Change Team: 
Three times a charm! - TICKS Girls Lightening 3/4 2021 season

Hello Parents,

Welcome to the Ticks Girls Lightening 3/4 2021 season!

My name is Meredith Ryan-Reid and I will be coaching the girls this season, along with Jen Kawecki. We both have daughters on the team. We have seventeen 3rd & 4th grade girls on the team this year - from Essex, Old Lyme, Ivoryton, Deep River and Old Saybrook.  We are definitely volunteers and we're happy for any help along the way:-)

We'll be practicing on Tues and Thurs nights from 6:00-7:30 at the field on Ferry Road in Old Saybrook. Our first practice is on Tuesday March 30th. The game schedule has been posted on the website. Please take a minute to download the full schedule, understanding it could change as we hear from different teams. 

Although I have coached in years past (and some of you have participated), we know that this year will be different for all of us. Parents will need to complete a form before every practice and game specific to COVID.  More to follow. Parents will not be allowed to stand on the sidelines and must remain in their cars. I am hoping these rules might evolve as the season progresses...TBD. Additionally, the girls will need to wear masks at practice and games.

In terms of equipment, the girls will need lacrosse sticks, mouth guards and face masks. I'd also recommend cleats. Please send the girls to practice and games with a labeled water bottle

Please make sure to register on the website https://www.leagueathletics.com.  We will post information on this site, under "bulletins" and send out team emails as often as required. We will also send out text messages on or before game days if anything changes.

I have a relatively intense full-time job, so it's hard to reach me by phone during the day. I'll do my best to respond to emails and texts.  Looking forward to a fun season! I played lacrosse at the University of Richmond and I love giving back to the sport that taught me so much. Really looking forward to being outside soon!
