Girls Varsity Lacrosse
Update on our partnership with Ashburn Youth Lacrosse and their rescheduled Spring Evaluations:
Ashburn Youth Lacrosse is rescheduling evaluations for THIS week and we are looking for volunteers to assist in the process.
Thursday, February 15th 5pm to 6:30pm at Evergreen SportsPlex
Friday February 16th 5pm to 6:30pm at Evergreen SportsPlex
The Friday session conflicts with our Tryout Meeting, so we are moving the Tryout Meeting to 8:30am on Friday morning so that we can support our friends at Ashburn Lacrosse. Please make this adjustment to your schedules!
Today begins our scheduled VHSL Dead Period, and as such we are not allowed to do anything sport specific with our players, but we will use the week prior to tryouts to meet/set expectations for tryouts. We are full steam ahead starting this Friday.
Friday, February 16th 4:20pm: PLAYER Tryout Meeting. We will collect any outstanding paperwork, discuss tryout expectations and answer all questions. Meet in Coach Benson's classroom. Expect this meeting to last about 45 minutes.
Countdown is ON!
We are getting this message out early so that you are not dragging along additional Green Day gear to morning training; we are canceling our Green Day tomorrow due to the predicted wind. Combined with temps in the 30s, we are looking at a less than optimal training environment.
**NOTE: we are on for SPEED/POWER tomorrow unless there is an LCPS weather delay/cancellation**
Enjoy the rest of your "snow day"!
Almost another week in the books bringing us THAT much closer to Tryouts 2018! We can tell you are getting ready by the increasing numbers at our Tuesday/Thursday SPEED/POWER morning sessions...maybe you just love to inchworm? Either way, we are glad to have you training with the program preseason!
- Green Day tomorrow February 1st: training is in the stadium starting at 4:20pm. There is weather predicted into the evening hours, so plan to wrap up at 5:45pm.
- RAMS BLUE BOX Team: the BLUE Team is on a bye this weekend
- RAMS WHITE BOX Team: 1pm game v Dominion
- RAMS VARSITY BOX: as the first seed, we drew the 3pm game against the 8 seed
- Unfortunately the Ashburn Youth Evaluations were canceled last weekend due to rain. Stay tuned for a makeup date.
Finish the week strong and obviously GO EAGLES this weekend in Super Bowl action:)
Reminder that the Ashburn Youth Lacrosse Tryouts are this weekend and we are helping run the drills/stations. Please reply to me directly if you are interested in coaching, volunteer hours will be given for participation.
- Saturday January 20th, 12pm-3pm Evergreen SportsPlex
- Help needed: run drill stations so the coaches can evaluate players
- WHO: sophomores, juniors and seniors
Just another way to #CONNECT
Good morning RAMS,
Hope you are enjoying an extended weekend over the Martin Luther King Jr Holiday!
Last week we kicked off our SPEED/POWER Series and we feel like we are off to a solid start with some sport specific targeted training in the weight room and the gym. Reminder that this is the best preparation for the season and there is no cost to participate, looking forward to seeing the entire program in attendance.
We are back in action this week on Tuesday and Thursday at 6:45am for SPEED/POWER and also Thursday for Green Day in the STADIUM at 4:15 until 6pm.
TRYOUT UPDATE: We handed out the tryout schedule at our interest meeting last Thursday. The doc is also posted on our Riversiderams site. PLEASE note one small time adjustment to DAY ONE: our sessions will be 8am to 10am and 12pm to 3pm. We apologize for the slight change, but we are working with the Athletic Department as they schedule tryouts across all spring sports.
How will you choose to #CONNECT with us this week?
Riverside Girls Lacrosse,
We are just about 6 weeks away from Tryout 2018! This is a very exciting year for our program from a growth perspective as we welcome a strong 2021 class to our program. Preseason training is a critical ingredient for a successful program; the 6 weeks leading up to tryouts allow players to work together and CONNECT while building strength, speed and sport specific agility skills. Over the next 6 weeks, our coaching staff will conduct SPEED/POWER Training for the entire program on Tuesday/Thursday mornings from 6:45am to 8am at Riverside. We encourage all players that are planning to tryout for our 2018 JV and Varsity Teams to commit to preseason training and get stronger and faster TOGETHER.
FOR EACH SESSION: All players should report to the Riverside Weight Room in training gear wearing running shoes and prepared for indoor/outdoor activities with layers. Please be sure to eat something for breakfast prior to training. The PE Locker Room will be open to all players following training so they can shower prior to school.
WEATHER/SCHOOL CLOSING/DELAY: This seems to be a thing right now:) If school is cancelled/delayed we will NOT have our morning session. We will tweet and message through TeamSnap and Riversiderams.net if we are cancelled.
Tomorrow, Tuesday January 9th is our SPEED/POWER kick off. We look forward to seeing EVERYONE at 6:45am.
The Holiday Break has been a BUSY time for our ambitious crew of RAMS! In 2 short weeks you have hosted a youth clinic for 25 aspiring young lacrosse players, competed in BOX games, spent countless hours on the wall AND attended camps and clinics up and down the east coast...very proud of you! As New Years Eve rolls in and we swap the calendar over to 2018, take some time to enjoy your family and friends and celebrate the New Year SAFELY.
WHAT'S UP NEXT: We look forward to seeing everyone back at Riverside for the start of classes on January 2nd. We have designed PHASE II to start on January 9th so that our student athletes have the first week to get back in the swing of academics. PHASE II will be handled in house by our coaching team and will follow our regular speed/lift schedule on Tuesday/Thursday 6:45am to 8am for 6 weeks, January 9th through February 12th. Please make note that Rierside gear is required for all sessions and we have a HARD start time at 6:45am, any late athletes cannot train.
ASHBURN LACROSSE: We continue to love our relationship with Ashburn Youth Lacrosse and are excited to have an opportunity to participate in their Spring Tryouts for 2018. We will need upperclassmen to volunteer for tryout sessions on the dates below. We will give volunteer hours for this amazing chance to share the game.
- January 20th: 12pm to 3pm
- January 28th: 2pm to 5pm
Happy New Year and see you at BOX this weekend!
