Hello 3/4 Blue Team,
What an exciting first game to our Lacrosse season!!! Although Weston was a bit physical our girls really dug in and delivered on those ground ball battles. I really enjoyed seeing how much FUN all the girls had and the excitment that they expressed. I am pretty certain every player was able to touch the ball during the game and play some different postions but we will continue to foster this and get everyone in the play.
Over the course of the season every player will play all positions when they are ready, including Goalie, though it seems that the majority of the players would like to play mid-field. In practice our goal is to work on ground balls, passing and catching, defense and rules of the game (staying behind the line and 3 passes before shooting).
Thanks to stand in coach Bjorn for helping out. Great job by our volunteer goalies and by volunteer I mean default goalies becasue they happen to be the coaches kids and got volunteered by their parents. It would be great if you could talk with your daughter about playing goalie as we will have a rotation if no one volunteers, if anyone is absolutely against playing please let us know.
Please let us know if your daughter did not have fun at the first game as that is our priority becasue if they are not having fun they will never grow as a player. Looking forward to the next game!!
On another note please go into the app and let us know your daughters availability for the next two games which are over school vacation week. I know myself and Emery will not be able to attend the game on the 18th.
