2012 SPRING LACROSSE SEASON INFORMATION
Saturday February 25th: Lacrosse Equipment and Practice Apparel Issue Day
We are quickly approaching the start of the Falcons lacrosse season. Please set aside Saturday February 25th for equipment and practice apparel issue day (no practice this day). All players (boys and girls) MUST report regardless if they already have their own equipment. Each player will be given a uniquely numbered practice reversible jersey and practice/game shorts which are theirs to keep. The player fee must be paid in full before any practice apparel or equipment is issued. Any remaining balance can be paid on or before February 25th. Please attend to the schedule below as we have 300 players that need to get their practice apparel and equipment. In order to keep the process moving smoothly we have set times for pickup based on the first letter of the player’s last name.
Saturday February 25th:
10am-11:30am: Last name beginning with the letters A through G
12pm-1:30pm: Last name beginning with the letters H through M
2pm-3:30pm: Last name beginning with the letters N through Z
Please note that all players are required to have their own stick and girls must also have their own goggles. Practice apparel should be worn to every practice. Since the weather can be very cold in March the practice reversible jerseys can be worn over sweatshirts and sweatpants worn over the practice shorts. Every player must also have a mouth guard to participate in practice and games.

Anytime there is thunder, lightning, heavy rain and/or snow at our fields, practices and games will be canceled and every effort will be made to reschedule.
