Hello! (Important: see link for WAIVER)
The Nutmeg is this weekend! I'm happy to say that Scott Trepanier will be bringing is Lacrosse coach skills to our team this weekend.
We are looking to have a practice this Thursday from 6p-8p. We have had difficulty finding a spot to practice. It might be at either Lyme School field or at the LOL practice field (if I can get approval). I should have a definitive answer on that tomorrow. If you are unable to practice, please let me know. We might even be able to hold a 6-7:30 practice on Friday if there's interest. Until then please ask your players to get their sticks in hand and practice!
If your daughter is playing in the Nutmeg games, please make sure you get the Waiver Form to me ASAP. The link for the form can be found HERE. Just the last page TEAM SPORT ATHLETE WAIVER is needed. Otherwise, they will not be able to play. If you do not have access to a printer, merely take a photo of it (try to include the entire form in the frame) and text or email it to me.
The schedule for Saturday has been posted. There are 9 teams. We are scheduled for three games. Our game times are:
If we are in contender position, then we could end up playing at 1:30PM. The weather on Saturday is looking perfect. It will be hot (77), so we'll need to ensure sunscreen and hydration is priority.

Like our tournament, I would love to have volunteers for snacks/beverages. Same as last time:
- Sliced watermelon (rind on)
- Honest kids pouches or some other pouch drink
- Quartered oranges
- Cookies or easy to eat dessert (to celebrate our team/games)
- Water bottles (we will run out after first game and will need to replenish)
- Granola or any type of quick snack bars
- Pop up Tent
- Chairs/blankets for players
Also, I will be bringing a tent for the team, but chairs for the players would be great. This is at Veterans memorial Stadium, so there are bleacher stands. Bring something to sit on! Also, parents might want to bring a tent for the stands. It gets very hot and it's great to be in the shade.
Info on the venue, rules, etc can be found here: Nutmeg State Games
The Ticks Lacrosse program covered half of the tournatment cost. The remainder is divided up between the participants. Once I receive final participant confirmation, I will know the total, but it's looking around $18 per player.
The list of players below. If your daughter wants to play and is not on the list, please let me know ASAP. Conversely, if your daughter is on the list and cannot play, please confirm ASAP. Thank you! - Coach Gilbert
