Montville Lacrosse - Coaches and Parents Info

Hello Coaches and Parents!!!

The fall sports season is well into full swing which means the spring season is fast approaching and preparation for the next Lacrosse season has begun!!!

The board has met and we have great plans for this coming year.  A few events are happening this month and we want to give you this information as early as possible so you can plan and hopefully help the league out by volunteering a little of your time!

 

Registration is OPEN!!!!

Online registration is now open with a $10 early-bird discount available through end of November.  Register by clicking on the Registration Link in the main menu.  A late fee will be incurred for registrations submitted after Jan 31st.

There is a modest registration fee increase of $5 this season to help offset costs for the end of season Coastal Jam tournament. This is the first registration fee increase since the inception of the league 5 years ago! 

Registration for grades K-2 is $25 (Instructional Player), and 3-8 is $55 (Youth Player). 

US Lacrosse membership is $30 and is required to be up to date through the end of the season.

Coaches NEEDED!!!

 

The league is looking for coaches at all levels!!!  No experience necessary!!!   If you have ever wanted to help coach your child's team NOW IS THE TIME!!!  Now is when we have experienced coaches to help you learn the game.  In a year or two, our experienced coaches will graduate out of the league with their children and we will be left training inexperienced coaches with inexperienced coaches!  We need your help to keep the league running, and offer this great athletic option to the youth of Montville.  Please consider volunteering!! If you have questions, please contact the league at 

 

Coaches Application is available on the website under the registration tab.  Please submit by Nov 30th, as coaches will be identified and notified as early as possible.  This is critical so we can be sure we have coaches for all the teams we plan to field, as well as providing those coaches enough time to complete any outstanding training. Please consider helping out MLAX by volunteering to coach today!!!

Level I Coaches Clinic

This is a great opportunity to get training from US lacrosse certified trainers.  If you’re new to the sport and looking to get involved as a volunteer coach, a parent wanting to learn the game your child is playing, or just want to refresh on best coaching practices, this is a great opportunity.  MLAX will reimburse anyone who completes the class and coaches in the spring for us!!

Returning Coaches

Level I Class is required!!

All returning coaches, it is required that ALL Head Coaches are certified from US Lacrosse. Assistant Coaches are required to complete all the Level I online modules, but not attend the in-person training to become certified.  All training MUST be completed prior to the season start.  If you have questions, please contact the league at 

Information on how to become certified can be found at http://www.USlacrosse.org at this link: http://www.uslacrosse.org/coaches/coaching-education-program/certification/level-1-certification

MLAX Equipment Exchange!
MLAX Equipment Exchange!

Dear MLAX Community,
 
We have many families asking about the availability of equipment for their children due to financial hardship or because they are first year players and want to be sure that their child likes the sport before making more of an investment.
 
We know that there are many lacrosse families who likely have outgrown equipment that is still in very good condition and could be reused. We have made an "Equipment Exchange" available on the MLAX website in the menu to the left of the Home screen at this link: http://montvillelacrosse.org/Exchange.asp?n=111973&org=montvillelacrosse.org
 
Please go onto the Equipment Exchange and post any equipment that you have available for sale, to borrow, or to give away. To ensure the safety of the players, please ensure that any equipment has not been damaged or involved in a significant collision (specifically helmets). When posting, please change the expiration date of your posting to June 15, 2014. And if your equipment gets spoken for, please take your posting down from the Exchange.
 
Thank you for helping us bring lacrosse to a broader group of players by helping those who are trying it for the first time, or who might not otherwise be able to afford the cost of equipment!
 
MLAX Board
 
DISCLAIMER:  All equipment and other goods listed on the MLAX Equipment Exchange are offered by third parties and not MLAX and are offered “as is.”  MLAX accepts no liability in connection with the sale or purchase of these items and disclaims any and all warranties express or implied.
