Happy Monday Lady Titan LAX Family,
We have completed 3 of 8 indoor practice sessions, our girls are looking better with every session that passes. We have a great turnout, the new players are learning at a fast pace, the veteran players are quickly getting to their mid-season form. The girls are working hard, and it will pay off when the season starts.
If you have not paid the $80 for the indoor sessions, please send a check to LSWHS and have it delivered to Mr. Rasdall in Room 0184 (ROTC Room). All checks should be made out to LS WEST LACROSSE. The coaching staff does not want to collect money at Lakeland unless Mr. Rasdall is there, so just giving him the money at the school makes it much easier.
I have received word that not everyone received my text message on last Saturday informing everyone that practice was moved up by 1 hour. I will ask that every person (player and/or parent) that has a TeamPages profile active “SMS Messages” so you can receive text messages when I have to send out very important information that is time sensitive. I have put together a “How-to” document that is attached to this email that should guide everyone on how to activate SMS (Text) Messages if you are currently not receiving any from TeamPages. Please reach out to me if you have any questions.
As for team information, there’s not much new information to post this week. Here are the key dates of things coming up this season:
Team Lock-in on 15 FEB 2019 at Lakeland Community Church. We will be spending the night as a team (this will include members of the coaching staff) overnight Friday night into Saturday morning. I will be sending more details out as it gets closer. The church is allowing us to use the facility at no cost, so we just need to bring our own food & drink, and make sure we clean up after ourselves before we leave. Our team Seniors are taking the lead on planning the details for the lock-in. I’ll be sharing those details soon.
Start of Spring Season / Varsity Tryouts – The official start of the Spring 2019 season is 25 FEB 2019. We will be moving our practices to LSW. Our practice field will be the field directly behind the tennis courts. We will be having our Varsity tryouts on Monday through Thursday of that week (25-28 FEB). Here’s a list of all things that MUST be completed prior to 25 FEB or you will NOT be allowed to take the field:
- US Lacrosse Membership – must be valid to around 1 JUNE 2019.
- Current Sports Physical – must be uploaded into PRIVT website.
- All dues paid.
Lee’s Summit vs Omaha / Des Moines Playdate on 29-30 MARCH. They will travel to LSMO and we’ll have a small tournament where each LS team will play each Omaha/Des Moines team. All 3 Lee’s Summit girls teams will be playing, and as of right now there are 2 teams from Omaha/Des Moines committed to play. This is supposed to be a Varsity-level tournament, but the position coaches will be deciding which JV players they will want to invite to participate as the date gets closer.
KC vs STL Playdate on 5-6 APRIL. Our Varsity team will travel to St. Louis to play 3 STL area teams (1 on Fri night, 2 on Sat). As of right now, the 3 STL area teams are Lafayette, Cor Jesu and Parkway West. From KC, we have LSW and St. Teresa’s committed, and we are waiting on the 3rd team to commit.
That’s it for now. If anyone has any questions, please let me know. If you still owe money for the indoor sessions or for the season dues, please get your payments to Mr. Rasdall in Room 0184 as soon as possible.
Have a great week. Feel Free to contact me with any questions.
