Game Day Info 5/7
Happy Game Day!
Game is confirmed, 6:30 pm at Andover HS Turf. The andover coach did let me know there is a small parking lot next to the field however it may be filled with Varsity Players who are practicing. Other option he gave is parking in the HS lot and make a short walk to the field.
Please have your daughter wear the Red side of her jersey tonight as the away team.
Looking forward to seeing everyone and hopefully we come out with a W tonight!
Our league is able to move forward with playoff action for Select teams.
We need to make the decision quickly if we would like to enter our Select U-13 team into the tournament. There will be two playoff days - June 18th for the playoffs and June 25th for the tournament of Champions.
Please let me know by Friday if your daughter would be able to play on those dates, if we have a solid group then I will go ahead and enter our team into the playoffs.
See you all tomorrow for Game Day! Please arrive at Andover HS no later than 6:00pm for our 6:30pm start.
Select U-13 PRACTICE CANCELLED
Tonight's 6:30-7:30pm practice at Piper field is CANCELED. We were hoping the rain would hold off but radar does not look too promising. Please have your daughter remember the concepts we reviewed in practice - transitions, accurate passing and catching first then moving and our new offensive play. Try and have your daughters watch some lacrosse highlights!
As a reminder - Game this Friday 5/7 6:30-7:45pm vs. Andover at Andover HS Stadium (80 Shawsheen Rd Andover, MA 01810)
Please arrive no later than 6:00pm so we can get a good warmup in and review concepts from practice!
Thank you and Go MHD!
Practice 5/4 & 5/5
Great effort in Friday nights game, it was a close one! We all know what to focus on this week for practice: transitions, settling the ball on offense, shooting and continued communication across the field. Practice for this week is our usual Tuesday night 6:15-7:30p at Village and we were also able to secure the Wednesday 6:30-7:30 time slot at Piper field again. I found having this second practice very beneficial and gave us a bit more time to work on important concepts we want to bring to our Friday games!
Need to confirm Fridays game, but as of right now it will be Friday night @ Andover HS 6:30pm.
See you all Tuesday!
U13 Select - Homework Tonight & Game Day Info
Please try and tune into at least one of the many women's lacrosse games airing today. You can find the full schedule at http://www.Insidelacrosse.com. UVA vs. BC for the ACC Championships is on right now. Remember everything we have gone over in practice while watching these games. Defense - heel's on the 8m, try not to get pulled out to the 12 and communication. Offense - the importance of settling the ball, filling open spots, start motion, and not holding onto the ball for too long (catch, head up looking for cutters, move the ball quickly) Clears - making space and cutting with a purpose giving your goalie a good clear option. Goalie - how important communication and ball tracking is. Watching these games will help you see all these being executed at the collegiate level!
GAME DAY INFO:
First game is tomorrow night 6:00-7:00pm at Piper Field. Please arrive no later than 5:30 so we have time for warmups. Warmups will have to be at the lower grass fields behind the gym.
