If you missed playing Lacrosse all summer long and are ready to get back on the field, or just want to get a stick in hand with some organized instruction to keep your skills sharp for the spring season, NOW is the time to act. Fall Clinics are starting NOW, as well as Clubs holding tryouts for both their Fall Tournament teams and their Summer Tournament teams.
Clinics are typically a few hours long on a weekday and run for 4-6 weeks. They are designed not to interfere with other fall sports.
Tournament teams are competitive teams, requiring tryouts and initiation to join, and play in tournaments all over the North East. Fall tournaments are typically a one day (no stay over) event, while Summer tournaments may require travel and hotel stays.
Though time is QUICKLY running out, it is not to late to sign up for these opportunities. MLAX provides the links below in an effort to promote the sport, but does not endorse any one program over another. You decide which is the best fit for you. We will however be happy to answer any questions you may have.
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!
