Upcoming Meetings and Events for 2019
As 2019 season approaches, we wanted to reach out with some important information and dates as the school year continues to get underway.
We’re beyond excited for the coming season as we prepare to take Homestead Lacrosse to the next level, carrying on from where we left off last season. While we have a very strong team in place we are continuing to press on with recruitment, and ask that you do the same.
We’re proud of the opportunities, quality of play and character of this program and are eager to share it with new interested players and are working hard to expand those opportunities. For now, please mark the following dates and events on your calendar.
Open Field, Lacrosse 101
Van Hoozen Park - Wednesday October 10 and Wednesday October 17 2:45 PM - 5:00 PM ET
Coach Trexler will be holding open and free practices for new players who want to try the sport and returning players interested in knocking off some rust. Lacrosse gear will be available for new players, while coaches and older players will be available to help teach fundamental stick skills and rules of the game. The sessions will be a great opportunity to for students who are on the fence about lacrosse but are willing to give it a try. Again, returning players are of course welcome. Depending on interest, additional dates may be added.
Player’s Call Out Meeting
Homestead Cafeteria - Thursday October 11 at 2:45 PM - 3:30 PM
For any interested students, returning players and coaches. Parents need not attend. Coach Ambrose will be laying out goals for 2019, explaining the structure and sports to new players and the next steps in growing Homestead Lacrosse. All players who plan on participating in 2019 need to attend, any player unable to attend should let the coaches know in advance. We encourage our players to bring friends and fellow students who may be interested. Attendance does not obligate any participation. Pizza will be provided.
Player Parent Information Night
Homestead Community Room - Thursday October 18 at 7:00 PM ET
For players and parents. Homestead Lacrosse coaches and board members will be laying out the 2019 program, costs, opportunities and commitments. All players who plan on participating are expected to attend, as are their parents. Again, attendance does not obligate participation.
Finally, you and your players are our best advocates and recruiters. This program’s success, for this year, and the future is, in part, reliant on our ability to recruit players interesting in becoming student athletes and being a part of what we are building.
We’re excited to see where the 2019 season will take us.
