Now that the high school/adult summer league is ready to go, I can finally concentrate on getting the youth league finalized. We are still working on some specifics like the time, weeknight, and cost, but we have narrowed down the basics. First and foremost, we have identified the type of game the youth league will play. We plan to open with instructional clinics/practices each night and followed by a Chumash game. We will only be using short sticks; we plan to provide a stick to each player as part of the registration fee. We are still working on helmet and glove issues.
The youth league will meet once a week and the boys will be coached primarily by the Valley coaches. We are receptive to members of the local lacrosse community assisting with the program.
We have a preliminary contact list of around 20 boys; there is plenty of room for more. If you know of an interested boy currently in grades 5-8 that would be interested, please contact us ASAP to get them on the initial contact list. This also applies to anybody interested in helping coach the boys. I anticipate having the information out this week.
