Williams School Summer Sticks
For the 14thconsecutive year, The Williams School is running the Summer Sticks Evening Lacrosse Camp for Boys and Girls in grades 3 - 10. Dates are June 25-29from 6:00-8:00 PM and each year we have a great staff of experienced college and high school players and coaches. It is a tremendous teaching camp and your players get a terrific opportunity to meet and compete with players from all over the eastern half of CT and western RI.
As President of Montville Lacrosse, I would like to thank everyone who helped make our 3rd Annual Mix of the Sticks day a great success. Especially our Committee Chairwoman, Donna Swinburn, who spent endless hours organizing and planning the day with her committee members. The day would not have happened without her dedication and spearheading the effort to pull it together.
Some additional individuals and groups that I would like to specifically mention:
Board Members – Those of you who manned a table, coached, answered endless questions, and may have missed your own children play, THANK YOU.
Montville Youth Soccer Association – For the use of their Shed/electricity, tables, and tents!!
Montville Youth Football League for the loaning of their sound equipment so we can have tunes and announcements throughout the day.
Kevin Leitzenger – for providing the tunes, entertaining trivia and announcements.
Dave Swinburn and the EMS Volunteers for volunteering their time to help keep us all safe!!
Youth Officials – The MHS Lacrosse players probably worked the hardest out of everyone!! Running from field to field, officiating back to back games throughout the day, they did a fantastic job managing the games, keeping them safe, and educating the players on the rules. A special shout out to Girls Officials Shay and Alexis for having officiated 6 straight 14U games throughout the afternoon! One official recorded over 37K steps and 14 miles throughout the day!! Thank you for work ethic and perseverance!
MHS Girls Lacrosse team – a number of MHS players volunteered throughout the day working scorers tables, bake sale, and Rita’s Ice table. The entire team participated in their annual community service by helping break down the fields, and do litter pick up throughout the facility.
Westerly / East Lyme / Waterford Lacrosse Associations for participating! All the teams were very competitive on the field. Thank you to the teams and the families for enjoying the day with us and helping keep our facilities clean!
All our vendors, thank you for coming and helping entertain and feed us all. We do apologize that some food vendors ran out of inventory and had to leave earlier than planned.
Mother Nature – Thanks for raising our anxiety and stress in the morning and then relieving it with much more palatable weather for our afternoon games.
