2017 Spring Season Parent Communication

Dear North Branford Youth Lacrosse Families,

Thank you for registering your son and/or daughter for the 2017 youth lacrosse season.  Believe it or not the first day of Spring is less than two weeks away. If the weather continues to cooperate, we’ll be outside practicing and playing lacrosse before you know it. 

The NBYLAX Board of Directors & Coaches have been meeting on a monthly basis, since September, in order to prepare for the 2017 season.  This year’s NBYLAX Board includes the following volunteers:

 

2017 Board of Directors: (Effective July 1, 2016)

                                                                    

President:                         Neil LeBeau                      

Vice President:                 Vacant  Position               

Treasurer:                         Kevin Toto                        t

Secretary:                         Jennifer Gibilisco             

Boys Coordinator:             Jason Taylor                    

Girls Coordinator:             Joe Amaturo                     

 

Please be patient with us as the start of this season will largely be dictated by the weather and field conditions.  Once again this year we’ve secured practice time in the dome at the Sportsplex beginning the week of March 20th(3rd to 8th Graders ONLY)  Be on the lookout, in the coming days, for more team specific information from your players coaching staff.  You can see team specific information on our website, nbylax.org, by going to “2017 Spring Teams” and choosing the appropriate team for your son or daughter.  In advance of that, below are a few general information points for parents as we prepare to start the 2017 Spring lacrosse season.

 

Spring 2017 Details:

 

Sportsplex Time:  For the weeks for March 20th and 27th.  Mondays & Wednesdays from 5:30 – 7:00 for the boys and Tuesdays & Thursdays from 5:30 – 7:00 for the girls.  Specific times will be coming from your son/daughters coaches.  (Boys & Girls K – 2nd Grades will not begin until April 8th)

BoysOutdoor Practice is scheduled to begin on or about April 1st at the Mill Road Field. (Depending on weather and field conditions)  In general all practices for the boys will be on Mondays and Wednesdays from 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM, however practice days may change or be added at the discretion of the Head Coach. Practice for the Boys Bantam team (K – 2nd Graders) will be held every Saturday, beginning on April 8th, at the Mill Road Field from 9:00 AM to 10:00 PM. Rosters for the boys are being finalized and you will begin receiving emails from the coaches and automatic game and practice reminders in the coming days.

GirlsOutdoor Practice is scheduled to begin on or about April 1st at the Mill Road Field. (Depending on weather and field conditions)  Girls’ practices will be held every Tuesday and Thursday from 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM for the Lightning, Junior and Senior teams. Practice for the Girls Bantam team (K – 2nd Graders) will be held every Saturday, beginning on April 8th, at Jerome Harrison School from 9:00 AM to 10:00 PM.  Rosters for the boys are being finalized and you will begin receiving emails from the coaches and automatic game and practice reminders in the coming days.

BantamsThe emphasis for both the boys and girls bantam teams is on having fun, learning skills and learning to love the sport of lacrosse. Practice cancellations because of rain or miserably cold conditions are totally at the discretion of the Head Coach. We want the new players to love going to practice and not hate it because they're miserable. More information regarding the Boys & Girls Bantams practice and game schedules will be sent by each coach.

Practicing in Cold Weather – Layers!Please have your son or daughter wear the proper clothing to practice and always remember, they can take off a layer if they get to hot. They can't put on what they don't have if they get cold. Cold players are miserable players!!!!

EquipmentIf your son or daughter is a new player and needs equipment, we recommend going to a store such as Whitie Bensen's in West Haven or Lacrosse Unlimited in Madison. It’s very important to buy the correct equipment that fits properly. I have seen many parents buy incorrect equipment, so I advise going to a store that specializes in lacrosse.  If you have specific questions about equipment, please contact your players coach or e-mail the Boys or Girls Coordinator.  ( or )  

 

You can also visit the “Lax Equipment” tab on the left hand menu of our website.  (https://leagueathletics.com/Page.asp?n=90224&org=nbylax.org)

 

UniformsThe uniform order has been placed and we anticipate distributing uniforms to all teams during the first week of April.  (All K to 2nd Grade Boys and Girls will receive NBYLAX Practice Pinnies in place of a full uniform.)

Water BottlesCoaches do not provide water, so please be sure your child has their own water bottle.

Mouth Guards:  All players are required to wear molded mouth guards at all times, on the field, during practices and games.  We recommend purchasing two mouth guards, players are always losing or forgetting them and we cannot allow players on the field without one.

RSVP to events:  It’s critical as the season begins that you respond to the reminder e-mails that are sent 24 to 48 hours before each practice or game.  This is the only way our coaching staffs know who is and who is not attending a practice or a game. 

Social Media:  You can follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.  (Search NBYLAX or North Branford Youth Lacrosse on each Social Media platform.)

 

If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to me.  I can answer your questions or forward them to the appropriate coach or Board Member.  We are all so excited for the season to begin.  Thank you in advance for allowing us to work with your sons and daughters.  It’s amazing to see how they develop their lacrosse skills and grow as individuals as the season progresses.

 

Thank you and have an amazing season!
