We have a lot of lacrosse this weekend for our U8 boys, so we wanted to touch base with some information and a few changes.
For Saturday we are schedule to play North Haven (away) at 2:30. North Haven only has 14 players and did not want to schedule a double header so we really cannot show up with all 45 of our players as it would result in mass chaos on the sidelines and each player getting very minimal time on the field. For this reason, we are asking that only the 2nd graders show up to this game and we will look to find another game at a later date for just the 1st graders. We do want to make sure that we have enough 2nd graders so if you have a second-grade player and you will not be able to make it please let us know as soon as possible because if we end up needing to fill in some spots, we will select some 1st graders to join us.
Sunday will more than make up for playing time for all the boys, we are hosting Madison who also has around 40 players. Madison has also had a hard time finding other towns to play who have similar numbers or a u8 program at all. Collectively we decided that since both towns have the numbers and want to get the boys as much game time as possible, we will play four games simultaneously starting at 11:30. After the first game we will rotate the teams and play four more games simultaneously starting at 12:30 and we will wrap up the day at 1:30. Once again if you think you will not be able to attend these games, please let us know so we can make any adjustments. If our numbers drop below 40 for Sunday, we will then probably switch it up and play 3 games at a time. Another reminder that picture day is also this Sunday, we have not been given a time yet but you should receive a notice about that from the site soon.
Lastly, I know a lot of you stick around for our practices so I am hoping I can get some volunteers to string up two more lacrosse cages which we will need for Sunday. If you can help, please come see me prior to practice so I can get you all set up for stringing up a cage.
