SYL Girls 3rd grade - closing the season

Hello 3rd Grade Lacrosse Families - 

On behalf of all of the 3rd grade coaches THANK YOU for a very fun and rewarding season with your girls! I hope everyone enjoyed the final games yesterday and could appreciate just how far these girls have come in the last 8 weeks. 

There are expected to be team pictures this week - the schedule is being finalized now. It will likely be Wednesday or possibly Tuesday. I'll send it as soon as I have it.

I have had a few questions about continuing lacrosse and summer programs - which makes me so happy!

SYL usually hosts something casual and fun in the summer - stay tuned

There are also several clubs that offer summer camps - which are good and my girls have enjoyed (even when they said they didn't like lacrosse!) 

And I am a huge proponent of checking out the club programs - it's not as big of a time commitment as you'd think and it's usually easy to find families to carpool with. The club programs give your player the opportunity to keep a stick in their hand all year long, on a schedule that works for you. (They tend to be a la carte programs.) The clubs usually have both a team option (which tryouts are required) and some skills sessions. Tryouts are just around the corner - I suggest checking out these programs. SYL is hoping to have a Zoom call to answer more questions about these in the next few weeks

SYL Girls 3rd Grade - tacos and today

Thanks to everyone for a fun taco party last night and apologies to every parent who is dealing with blue poop and blue fingers, faces, etc this morning! 

There was a pair of white sneakers left behind. They say "love LIT" on the inside of the soles and are white and the brand is UGG. 

I will happily go to the wall tonight for anyone who is interested and I'll bring music and snacks - however, given the low numbers lately and the fact that it's the start of a holiday weekend can you please let me know if you want to go? 

Thanks and have a great weekend - please encourage your girls to work on catching! Our wall ball challenge will end next week.

As a reminder - our last game is Sunday 6/5

Thanks,

Jackie

Everyone should arrive to Devens at least an hour before your game time. We will walk from the SYL tent to our fields as a team so please meet there.

Additionally, the feedback from today's event was that teams were looking for more games and there were some offered up. We are keeping an eye on this and we may have an extra game added to our schedule tomorrow.

Coaches will not have access to emails tomorrow so please meet up at the SYL tent and stay connected through text.

We're looking forward to a fun day!

SYL Girls 3rd - Jamboree Teams

Hello everyone - 

The jamboree has been loaded into the Tourney Machine app but the game schedule is not out yet. They are still making changes to the line up. We have asked for our teams to be in certain time blocks and hope that this will be honored but please remain flexible.

The good news is that you can see on the app that there are girls teams from all over Massachusetts coming to this jamboree. It is really an exciting day and our organization is thrilled to be a part of this. When I played lacrosse in Winchester in 1994 there were just four high school teams in the entire state. To see how the sport has grown honestly gives me goose bumps.

Here are the teams - we don't know yet which "color" each team is and we'll send out updates as we have them. Please let us know asap if your player's name is missing or if your plans have changed.

Thanks - Your very excited coaching staff!

SYL Girls 3rd grade - jamboree updates

Hello everyone - 

We are getting really excited for our jamboree on Sunday! These events are always fun and a great opportunity for the girls to play other towns and have some fun together. 

Please remember that 3rd grade has been asked to donate cut fruit to the Scituate Youth Lacrosse tent. There will a large blue "S" flag flying from our tents. 

The jamboree game schedules have not yet been posted on the Tourney Machine app. The vendor had some issues and is hoping to get it up soon. 

We are supposed to have 2 teams in the 8-11am time slot and 2 teams in the 11-2pm time slot. 

We are working on creating the teams now - which are 3rd/4th combined - and we will announce those on Friday. 

NOTE: game schedules are subject to change and we do expect that there will changes to please plan to be flexible. 

It's going to be hot so please plan accordingly! Bring lots of extra water and sunscreen and even towels on ice.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks,

Jackie

SYL Girls 3rd Grade - Wall Ball Challenge

Hello 3rd Grade Girl Families - 

Catching, throwing, and scooping a quick ground ball on the run are fundemental skills to the game of lacrosse. Every year we challenge our players to work on these skills on their own - and we like to sweeten the deal to make it fun. 

The girls will receive (if they haven't already) a weekly wall-ball challenge for them to complete. You need to watch them and return the sheet, signed, as confirmation that your player has completed the weekly challenge. Every week we will hand out the prize at our Wall Ball practice. The weekly prize is the "S" sticker on their stick. We hope they will end the season with 8 stickers!

In addition to working on weekly skills, we are offering a season long challenge for the girls to work towards:

Being able to throw and catch consistently, off a wall or rebounder with both hands - and this must be recorded on video and sent to Ashley Schumacher for verification (ashley.schumacher22@gmail.com). 

Rules:

1. The girls must use proper form! How to Catch Video

2. The girls cannot drop the ball. If they drop, they must start over. 

3. Please be encouraging! It's super hard to catch these in a row but you will see that once they can do 5, 10 will come quickly.

Here are the challenges and Prizes

10 Right and 10 Left - no dropping - Gift Card to Nona's for small ice cream cone

25 Right and 25 Left - no dropping - TBD but likely a Scituate Lacrosse headband

50 Right and 50 Left - no dropping - Gift card for individual pizza at Harbor House

100 Right and 100 Left - no dropping - Customized Scituate lacrosse stick

Please let me know if there are any questions!

SYL Girls 3rd Grade - weekly updates

Morning 3rd Grade Girl Lax families!

A few updates for this week and next.......

Practices: Going forward, please use the Recreation Field entrance by the new Senior Center and not the entrance by the tennis courts. We have overlapping time with Girls 1st/2nd and there will be over 100 girls overlapping this space. Coaches will help direct the girls where to drop their bags. 

Tomorrow: SHS Varsity Girls game watch at SHS 4pm. We would like the girls to attend the SHS Varsity Girls game. SYL will have pizza/drinks. Parents are more than welcome to attend and watch too!

Friday: there will no NO wall ball practice at the lax wall this week.

This weekend and next week: No games and no practices this week or next. We will reconvene with the girls at the games on Sunday April 24th. 

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE work on catching and throwing while we have this break. As you can see from our games, winning ground ball battles and being able to catch are critical components to the game. If your player is new, slow underhand tosses to her, while she has one hand on the stick is a good way to get started. The SHS Lax Wall is open every day - even fifteen minutes against the wall or a reounder will drastically help the girls skills. Here are a few videos that can help:

SYL Girls 3rd Grade - Practice Cancelled today

All 3rd grade families - due to the weather we are cancelling 3rd grade practice today. 

We highly recommend your player spend some time walking around carrying a lacrosse ball in her stick, scooping up ground balls in the grass when it dries out a bit and practicing catching off a wall, rebounder or from a parent/sibling/friend tossing.

See you all on Friday at the wall!

SYL Girls 3rd Grade - Team rosters and games this weekend

Morning 3rd Grade Girl Families - 

We have been divided into 3 leveled teams. We will all still practice together, but each team will have their own games on the weekend. We are doing this so that every player gets maximum playing time every weekend. It is really important that you communicate with your coach if you cannot be there and we hope that you will do everything you can to make each game so that we don't run into scenarios where we are short players. Please respond to the RSVP email the system generates. NOTE: these teams may change a bit as the season goes on to be sure we have leveled teams.

Please link your calendar to your team schedule through the app or the website. Let me know if you need help. If you have already linked your calendar, please unsubsscribe/unlink and start fresh and please log out / back-in on the app. All game details (times/locations/directions) are on the events in the calendars.

This weekend's games - all on Sunday:

SYL Girls 3rd Grade - practices start this week

Hello 3rd Grade Girl Lax Families!

It was great to see many of you on the field today! The girls look great and we are really excited for this season and the beginning our league play! A few notes and reminders:

PRACTICES: 

Monday/Wednesday 5:45-7:00 at Recreation Field/Old Gates and Fridays at 5:00-5:30 at the SYL Lax Wall at SHS (next to softball turf)

Please make sure your player is dressed appropriately for the weather - it is windy at the field and the girls get cold. We recommend the girls wear lax gloves on cold days. 

EQUIPMENT:

The girls MUST have a girls lacrosse stick to play this year. They can no longer use the Warp sticks from Scoops. Please also get them many mouthguards, they are lost easily. The girls will not be able to participate in a practice or a game if they do not have their goggles, mouthguards and a girls stick. (Please check out Good Sport for sticks. I recommend the String King Jr for most of these girls and Austin at GS knows what our program wants.) 

The girls will receive their uniforms tomorrow after practice. They need to wear their pinnies to every practice and every game. 

GAME DAY:

Our first game is Sunday! The girls must always be dressed and ready to play 30 minutes prior to game time. 

Please no coaching from the sidelines. RULES HERE. Notably: At this age the girls cannot check, and we have a 3-pass rule. Instructions from the sidelines confuse the girls - however, we do love a good cheer section! You can get SYL gear here: SYL GEAR 

Teams (Black, Blue, White) will be announced this week. 

SAVE THE DATES:

Saturday, April 9th - we are going to watch the BC Women's Lax game at Alumni Stadium at BC! SYL will host a tailgate and tickets are free. 

Sunday, May 22nd - we are going to play in a tournament at Ft Devens. This is a major event for girls lacrosse in our region and should be a lot of fun for everyone!

 

Let us know if you have any questions!
