Two Easton Lacrosse Players Suspended for Carrying a Pen Knife and Lighter
Two Easton lacrosse players suspended under zero-tolerance policies They were carrying a pen knife and lighter, which they said they used to fix their lacrosse sticks May 10, 2011|By Liz Bowie, The Baltimore Sun Kim Hairston, Baltimore SunVarsity athlete Graham Dennis never thought of the pen knife he carried in his bag to repair his lacrosse stick's strings as a dangerous weapon. It was a tool of the sport, he believed, until Easton High School officials found the item in a search of bags on a school bus headed for a game.
Dennis and teammate Casey Edsall, who had a lighter that he also used to repair equipment, were sent to the principal's office and the police were called. Dennis was hauled off in handcuffs to be fingerprinted and charged as a juvenile with possession of a deadly weapon.
The school system's handling of the punishment has enraged the 17-year-old boys' parents and drawn criticism from some area residents who say the case is an example of Talbot County's zero-tolerance policies gone amok. The incident comes just as members of the state board of education are raising concerns about whether some school system policies around Maryland are too harsh and deny students the right to an education.

US Lacrosse Parent Handbook
Click Here to View Youth Handbook
I encourage all to read this 8 page handbook. It is chock full of great information. It was developed specifically for parents to provide guiding principles for the game, a game overview, a diagram of the field and required equipment, and finally an overview of the minor and major fouls along with their hand signals.
You will want to familiarize with this so you can better understand and enjoy the game of lacrosse.
U.S. LAcrosse Membership Update
From here on out we will be registering each player through U.S. Lacrosse as a group. This will make this process easier for you and it will make my job easier trying to make sure each player is current with their membership.
Players, coaches and officials have the protection of a comprehensive lacrosse insurance program for a full year. Detailed insurance information can be found on the website, including claim forms, optional insurance and risk management information. Please call 1.800.350.8005 for more details on this extensive insurance protection, which is included in your membership dues. Note: The 1.800 number listed above does not connect to the US Lacrosse headquarters
The US Lacrosse Member Insurance Program provides Liability and Accident Medical Insurance to all members while participating in covered amateur lacrosse activities. The Insurance Program has been developed by the US Lacrosse Insurance/Risk Management Committee to establish high quality insurance standards for the sport and to provide protection to all registered members during the term of their membership.
The program provides two important types of coverage. The Liability policies (General Liability and Excess Liability) protect members who are sued for incidents arising out of lacrosse activities that involve Bodily Injury or Property Damage. If a player or spectator is injured and sues you as a result, or if your team ruins a school’s tennis courts by running across them in their cleats, those are the types of claims that would be covered by the Liability policies.
The second part of the insurance program is Accident Medical insurance. This coverage is made up of two policies, Basic Accident insurance and Catastrophic Accident insurance. These policies protect the individual member if he or she is injured during a covered lacrosse activity, and cover the medical, dental and hospital expenses resulting from that injury.
Together, these plans make up the US Lacrosse Insurance Program ~ one of the best programs in amateur sports today!
Who is Covered?
The following are covered as named insureds under the General Liability policy: US Lacrosse, Inc; all currently registered member players, coaches and officials; directors and officers of US Lacrosse; its member chapters, member teams and leagues; and those covered as Non-Members under the program while participating in a Covered Activity, for whom this insurance has been purchased.
The Accident policy covers all currently registered member players, coaches and officials; and those covered as Non-Members under the program while participating in a Covered Activity, for whom this insurance has been purchased.
The accident and liability policies provide coverage to insured persons (as defined above) while participating in the following Covered Activities:
1) Scheduled games, team practice sessions, camps, clinics, tournaments or sponsored activities, provided they are under the direct supervision of a team official.
2) Group Travel as a Team directly to or from such scheduled practices, games or sponsored activities is covered under the accident policy. The liability policy provides non-ownership liability only while an automobile is being used in the official business of the US Lacrosse National Office.
Note: No liability coverage is provided to parents, coaches or volunteers while using any automobile to transport team members or volunteers to any practice, game or activity. Therefore, Bollinger and US Lacrosse Strongly advise you to verify that anyone who is designated to drive players or other members to lacrosse activities is properly licensed and insured.
3) Other sponsored and supervised activities, such as team or league meetings, banquets and usual, non-hazardous fundraisers are also covered by both the accident and liability policies. Examples of non-hazardous fundraisers are bake sales, car washes and other similar events. No coverage is provided for any event that includes fireworks.

Lacrosse Article in Dispatch
Lacrosse could become an OHSAA sport
Tuesday, April 27, 2010 2:54 AM
By Mark Znidar
THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH
If boys high school lacrosse were to receive a thorough physical examination, the results would reveal a strong pulse and a growth spurt that suggests the patient would stand tall one day.
There are 107 teams playing statewide this spring, and it appears it's only a matter of time until the number reaches 150 teams, the minimum to be considered for sanctioning as a varsity sport by the Ohio High School Athletic Association.
To show that they are serious about reaching the next level, Ohio High School Lacrosse Association commissioner Paul Balcerzak and his athletic council have taken the training wheels off this season by realigning divisions according to OHSAA enrollment guidelines.
In the past, teams were divided by ability. Powers such as Upper Arlington and the Worthington and Dublin schools played in Division I. Developing teams were placed in Division II.
"We have two primary missions, and that is to grow the sport and to be good stewards of the game," Balcerzak said. "We had to be more like the Ohio High School Athletic Association because our goal is to eventually be in the OHSAA. We've had a whole bunch of configurations since 1995, and it was time to make lacrosse like all the other sports. You go by size, plain and simple."
Division I lacrosse contains schools that have enrollments of at least 475 boys in the upper three grades. There are 42 teams each in Divisions I and II, and there are 23 club teams.
"There was some grumbling and it took a little bit of understanding from the coaches, but I think they are buying into it," Balcerzak said.
Dublin Jerome, which was moved to Division II, might be affected by the change more than any other team in the state. The Celtics have a standout in Johns Hopkins-bound midfielder Eric Ruhl and a rich supporting cast that could have challenged for a Division I championship.
"At first, I said, 'I don't want to do that,'" Celtics coach A.J. Auld said. "Then I saw the big picture and where the association wanted to go with this. I'm more than all right with this. Nothing much has changed for us. There's still an awful lot on the line."
Auld has told his players that they are on the ground floor of something big.
"This is a big step for us to align with the OHSAA," Auld said. "Lacrosse can become one of the top revenue sports for the OHSAA. We all want to see lacrosse grow. We all want to see hundreds of schools playing in Ohio and not just 100 or so. We hope the OHSAA is taking notice."
Ruhl said he would be able to look back and say he was part of a move that transformed lacrosse from niche sport to household name.
"It's another step toward becoming (an OHSAA-sanctioned) sport, and it is going to happen one day," he said. "I have friends who are athletes in other sports coming to our games. They've gotten excited about the game. Our fan base is growing all the time."
Realignment has meant something totally different for Gahanna. The Lions are in their sixth season, but now play in Division I.
"One of my big concerns was, 'Uh-oh, what is this going to do to our program?'" coach Brett Dillon said. "We're going to be in there with Upper Arlington, Worthington Kilbourne, Hilliard Davidson and Thomas Worthington. Our kids came in a little intimidated but wound up beating Hilliard Darby. Once we got through that mindset of what the sticker said on the side of their helmet and we wanted to beat them, we could beat them."
Gahanna has won six of nine games, but a 21-7 loss to Olentangy Liberty this past weekend suggests there is a ways to go.
"We're playing better teams and that has pushed us," senior attack Nate Hays said. "It has been a big change for Gahanna - a huge change. We practice differently and play differently. We're no longer laid-back."
Lacrosse has some growing to do before it can be adopted by the OHSAA. Spokesman Tim Stried said a sport must maintain at least 150 teams over a two-year period before the board of directors can take a vote. Ice hockey (85 teams) and field hockey (35) were admitted through a grandfather clause.
"I don't see lacrosse becoming an OHSAA-sanctioned sport next year or the year after that, but I think we're well on our way," Balcerzak said.
Do You have Stinky Shoes/Equipment??
Since there may be "NEWBIES" to this sport or your "SEASONED" player has talked you into buying new shoes/equipment, I thought I would offer some ideas to keep your son's equipment from becoming a smelly mess. A quick 5 minute trip to practice with his bag in the car may leave you senseless!
Here is TIP #1. If it was a DRY practice, have your son open his shoes wide to let air dry in the garage overnight. If it was a WET practice, stuff the shoes with newspapers to draw out the moisture and place upside down across a floor register overnight. Have him open the bag up wide and remove the shoulder pads, elbow pads, and gloves and somehow arrange them on a few hangers to air dry before the next practice. The helmet should also be outside of the bag air drying as well. I have heard that Extra Strength Febreze works well, too.
Here is TIP #2.
Things You'll Need:
Old pair of panyhose or thin socks
Step 1 Spray down the insides of your stinky shoes with a disinfectant spray, I prefer Lysol. This is the first step to reclaiming your shoes, as you want to remove the stinky odor causing bacteria to get a good start on keeping your shoes fresh. Killing these bacteria will make it less likely they can regain a foothold in your shoes.
Step 2 Take an old pair of pantyhose or thin socks. Cut the ends to about six inches or so. Fill hose or socks with charcoal and tie the end. Aquarium charcoal (activated) is probably the most effective in removing stinky odors from shoes.
Step 3 After each use, stuff the baggie of charcoal into your shoes and leave there until the next use. The charcoal will absorb any new odors as they appear and will leave your shoes fresh as a daisy! Staying on top of these stinky odors is key in keeping them away.
Starting a regime at this age and early in the season will help with the stinky bag/equipment syndrome before everything smells sooooo bad that your only way to solve this problem is to grab that wallet of yours..open it wide....and purchase all new eqiupment again!!
