Our online store is open! Please remember that those who already have team warm ups only need to buy the team shirt - UNDER ARMOUR STRIPE TECH LOCKER TEE - 
It has 'all you got" printed on the sleeve​. If you don't have team  warm ups please be sure to purchase the "wolverine pack" - it gives a discount for buying the warm up jacket and pants together - as well as the team shirt. 
 
The Under Armour 1/4 zip in sizes small and medium are on back order until April - they will be delivered after that. Something to note - all screen printed items require a minimum order from the team in order to move forward. If the minimum is not met than you will be refunded the price of the item. 
All items will be delivered to me and I will hand out orders at practice. 
 
The sale will close Wednesday night. If there is any issue with making the purchase by then please let me know - we will work something out!

Changes to schedule this week

Parents, Students,
 
There are several changes to this week's schedule.
 
Tomorrow's practice will be moved up an hour - 6 - 7:30. We apologize for the late notice but we're hoping everyone prefers to get their girls home sooner. Reminder - we still need parent volunteers to help with goal stringing during practice.
 
Tuesday:
Varsity tentatively has an away scrimmage at Flint Hill School - start time is 4:45 - this won't be confirmed until tomorrow. In order to get there on time we will likely need to carpool after school to get there and possibly back. If any parent is willing to drive then please email me - westpoglax@gmail.com. You will need to fill out a form and scan it back to me. Really appreciate your support with this
 
Flint Hill was not able to field a JV team this season - we're hoping to get a JV scrimmage in on Friday night at 7:30 - hoping to confirm that by Tuesday.
 
No JV practice on Tuesday.
 
Wednesday: picture day is in the gym at 5:50 for JV and 6:00 for Var. Forms were given out on Friday - I have more if you need. Right after picture day the students have concussion testing then we have practice until 8:00 pm.
 
Thursday: morning practice - 6.15 am - will be on the practice turf.
 
Friday JV tentatively has a scrimmage at 7:30. If we have the scrimmage there will be no practice.
 
We appreciate your flexibility & support!

Friday Mar 3rd practice change + call for volunteers

Due the storms yesterday another team's scrimmage had to be moved to tomorrow so our practice is changing. We will be on the practice turf from 4 - 5:45pm tomorrow. 

Also - we had a manager back out so we're in need of a student or parent volunteer to do stats for both games for us until we can find more managers. If anyone can cover either the JV or Varsity scrimmage tonight that would be great. Also, if I can get a volunteer to tape either game please let me know. 

Thanks!

Tryouts Tuesday - Thursday + Parent Info Meeting

Tryouts are next week - Tues - Thur 7-9pm on the stadium field. You can not tryout without turning in your yellow card and emergency care form - no exceptions. 

The feb/march schedule is not finalized yet but we'll be on the stadium field Tues- Friday 7-9pm. Varsity practice will be on Saturday on the stadium field, time TBD. The second week we will be at Bryant 4:00 - 5:30pm. 

It was just brought to my attention that I didn't share details about the info meeting on the team site. My apologize for the oversight - I updated the players at conditioning but didn't post it here. The info meeting is directly after the spring sports parent information night - tomorrow at 7pm in Kogelman. If you can't make it you can find the agenda on the team site on Thursday. Feel free to reach out with any questions. 

Thanks, 

C

Please read - several updates

Reminder: Looking for student volunteers to help out with Fort Hunt Youth Lacrosse evaluations on Mon., Feb 6 from 3-5pm at South Run REC indoor turf. If you're interested please text or email me ASAP (571-643-6186/ctlopezyusuf@gmail.com). I'd be happy to sign off on volunteer hours for the event. 
 
No conditioning on Tuesday 2/14. 
 
I was hoping to get some help with a few things - it is a very busy time for me with a newborn and toddler, moving to a new home and prepping for the season so any time you can give would be GREATLY appreciated! 
 
- If I can get a volunteer or two to do uniform inventory that would be great - I can imagine it would take about an hour or less to get done if at least two people tackle it together. 
 
- I would love to have a few volunteers put together a few new practice goals, change out the nets on two goals and transport two of those to Bryant High. 
 
A few updates: 
- We will have an interest meeting (open to parents and players) the week before tryouts - the date, time and place will be announced soon. In the meantime, please feel free to ask me any questions via email, text or give me a call. 
 
- Our practice schedule is usually given to us a month at a time - the schedule for Feb/March has not been finalized yet but we will likely be working primarily with a few different practice slots for the season (listed below). Our families have done a great job of organizing carpools in the past and I'm sure this season will be the same!
  • 5-7pm on the stadium field 
  • 7-9pm on the stadium field 
  • 4-5:30 at Bryant High 
  • Morning practice (time TBD) on the stadium field 2-4 times a month (instead of practice after school)
  • Saturday morning practice (time TBD) on the stadium field
- I will be looking for at least four team parents (two for JV and two for Varsity) to organize concessions, fundraisers, senior/fort hunt night (4/4), etc. I like to wait on that until our teams are put together to move forward with this to make sure we have coverage for both JV and Varsity. 
 
- If you would like to volunteer to help organize our Battle on the Potomac tournament (4/22) please let me know. 
 
- We are still in need of managers for the season - if you know of any responsible students who may be interested please let me know. Aside for a few hours of administrative work I'll need from them they are only obligated to work games - not practices. 
 
- If you know of anyone who may be interested in coaching please let me know. Coach Sargent moved so we are looking to add one more person to the staff to work with field players. 
 
Again, please let me know if you have any questions - I'm happy to chat on the phone or via email/text.
