Have you thought about coaching your child's lacrosse team? Do you sit on the side line watching the game, and think about being more involved in the development of the players, not just as lacrosse players, but as youth and young adults? Do you just want to be more involved and give back to the community?
There are many reasons why those volunteers you see on the sidelines do what they do. What is your reason?
MLAX is now accepting applications for Head and Assistant Coaches for the 2015 spring lacrosse season.
Practice STARTS immediately at practice time. Show up early to get equipment on so that you are on the field at START time.
Gametime: Warm ups start 30 minutes before your game time. The whistle will blow to start the game at its scheduled time. We need to be ready. (Parents: note that the schedule is a little flexible. The game could start later if the games throughout the day run over time).
Spectators: Spectators MUST sit on the opposite side line from the team bench, and NO SITTING on the end lines. Refs and coaches will ask you to move if you sit there. This is for safety reasons when balls start flying.
MLAX Schedule: Games run all week. And on the weekends, games will typically run all day. Check the master schedule and come cheer on all MLAX teams when you can!
Importance of committing to games: Please remember that lacrosse is "The Fastest Game On Two Feet". And that means the players get TIRED! We can't stress enough how important it is for our entire team to commit to games to ensure we have enough substitutions to keep ourselves fresh throughout the game and remain competitive!
Play your hearts out and have fun doing it! Respect, respect, respect: Respect the GAME, the Officials, the Coaches, the other Team, and your Teammates And most importantly...have fun. This is about learning a new sport and playing so hard your lungs hurt! Leave it all on the field. You are part of something special...enjoy it!
