Hello 5th Grade Boys White Plains Lacrosse Players & Families,
Welcome! I am Coach Zach. I will be overseeing the 5th grade boys program this Spring. I may have already coached some of you guys at one of our Fall or Winter rec sessions before. I am looking forward to having a fun and productive Spring with you guys. Hopefully you all are prepared to have a good time, learn a ton about lacrosse, teamwork, and how to become better athletes. Coach Spencer and I are looking forward to meeting all of you! Our team manager this year will be Darya Pozo, her contact info has been included down below. If any player or parent has any questions, feel free to reach out!
Our first practice is scheduled for 04/07/2021 @ WPHS F12 from 6-7:30pm. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to practice so that all equipment can be put on and players are ready to go at 6:00pm! We currently anticipate practicing on Wednesdays and Fridays during the 6-7:30pm timeslot. We will update you if any changes are made.
PARENT MEETING: There will be a parent meeting directly following the first practice on 04/07/2021 @ WPHS F12 from 6-7:30pm. We hope to use this as a chance for the parents to get to know the coaches as well as ask any questions about the upcoming season. Due to covid restrictions we ask for just 1 parent to attend.
COMMUNICATION: Please communicate with coaches on missing practices/games via email. This helps with planning! Some of the drills we run are highly dependent on the amount of players we have.
EQUIPMENT: Players need: A helmet, gloves, elbow pads, and shoulder pads are needed in order to fully participate in practice and in games. It is highly advised to have cleats & a protective cup as well. If there are any questions pertaining to player equipment feel free to reach out to the coaching staff.
WHAT TO WEAR: It is recommended that players should wear layers, especially early in the season. Once the sun goes down it gets cold!
BE ON TIME: Please arrive 15 minutes prior to practice and 30 minutes prior to games. Equipment should be on and players should be ready to go!
PICK UP TIME: Parents should be there at least 10 minutes before the end of practice time (especially early in the season when it gets darker early). No late pickups please!
PARENT SIDELINE BEHAVIOR: All parents should be on the opposite field side bench. Let’s remember to practice sportsmanship! Thank you!
Hope to see everyone April 7th!
