Happy Thanksgiving

Greetings Riverside Lacrosse,

Thank you all for creating such a positive and fun weekend for Riverside Lacrosse. Both Varsity teams had strong showings against very talented teams in both divisions. Our Riverside JV team (made up of all Freshmen players) won their Division. Moving forward they were the top seeded team going into the championship bracket. They then won two tough games in the playoffs to take home the 2018 Fall Brawl Championship! Great weekend all around.

Moving forward:

  • Please be sure to check the schedule posted earlier this fall for remaining fall green days and events.
  • Due to the Thanksgiving holiday, organized lifting for the remainder of the week will be canceled.
    • Workouts for Wednesday and Friday are posted in your teambuildr accounts if you wish to work on your own outside of school with your teammates.
    • Always be sure to check teambuildr apps for messages from Coach Kirkland
    • Workouts will resume Monday 11/26
  • Enjoy Thanksgiving with family and friends!

ALL IN,

Week of 11/12 Updates and Reminders

               

 

Greetings Riverside Lacrosse,

 

I hope this email finds everyone doing well, and recharging. Just wanted to send out a few quick notes about this week:

  • As a reminder we are still in the VHSL Dead Period for spring sports. That means we can have no contact as coaches with the team until Thursday 11/15.
  • Thursday 11/15 we will have a very important team meeting at 4:15pm in the weight room for all interested in playing lacrosse this spring. The meeting will last 15-20min.
  • Thursday 11/15 we will be changing the Green Day time. We will now practice from               5-6:45pm in the Stadium. So, we will meet in the weight room, then change and go to the stadium for practice.
  • Friday 11/16 we will start lifting again @ 7am. Now that winter sports have started, we will be changing our lifting days back to Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings. This will hopefully give us more space to function and work hard.
  • Saturday 11/17 and Sunday 11/18 we will be competing in the Fairfax Fall Brawl at Robinson High School. Both Varsity teams will play on Saturday and our Freshmen will play on Sunday. This tournament is meant to be a fun tournament, celebrating the game in a positive way. We are looking forward to spending that time together. An email will be coming out to parents about logistics for our Ram Tent City.
  • Lastly, our Fall Fan Gear Store closes on Wednesday 11/14. Be sure to check it out. Info under TEAM FILES Tab.

 

Looking forward to seeing everyone and having a great 4 days of lacrosse!

2018 Fall Riverside Lacrosse Spirit Store

Greetings Riverside Lacrosse,

This just in! We have opened a fall team store through our friends at Kollegetown! We are offering custom Under Armour Riverside Lacrosse apparel at discounted prices. Many ladies cut items this year, as well as some great things for dads and siblings as well. One of the best items, that will not be included this spring in the player packs (but players will be allowed to wear in the spring), are custom Riverside Lacrosse Under Armour cold gear compression (Top and Bottom), perfect for wearing under your pads and keeping you warm early in the season!

Instructions are posted under the Team Files Tab, here is the link to the store: https://ktforms.com/store/rshla

As always, this is NOT the players spirit pack items, there will be a mandatory spirit pack that players will get when they make the program in the spring, and they will be required to wear those items.

These are just extra items that may be purchased for fans of Riverside Lacrosse to wear in the stands and show their Ram Spirit, they are not mandatory, nor does buying them guarantee a spot in the program.

Looking forward to a fun November of Riverside Lacrosse as we wrap up the 2018 Fall Season!

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask,

ALL IN!

Oakton Turkey Shootout Reminder

Greetings Riverside Lacrosse,

The Turkey Shootout Admin has extended the registration without late fee until 11/7. Reminder that we treat this tournament as the culminating fall event for Riverside Lacrosse.

Lifting Monday 10/22

Greetings Riverside Lacrosse, 

There is no school tomorrow 10/22 for students, however we will lift in the afternoon. We want you to sleep in and have the morning to yourself. We will start our workout at 2pm tomorrow. The effort and work we are putting forth in the weight room is already being noticed and it has only been 4 weeks. Continue to embrace the process and build that bond with your teammates. We have 4 months to continue to improve our physical strength, mental strength, and team unity. 

Fantastic job finishing the regular season in the VEL Fall League. Next Saturday is the last day for the VEL. It is the Championship Tournament day. Our teams are guaranteed at least 1 game, if we keep winning we keep playing. The Varsity secured the 3 seed in the top division, The JV secured the 2 seed in the top division. Lets have great attendance and finish the VEL strong next weekend.

Green Day 10/17 Time Change

Greetings Riverside Lacrosse, 

Due to football moving their practice time back until 8pm, we need to change our time. Since we lost our Green Day last week, we did not want to do that to the players again. We will hold our Green Day practice tomorrow from 8:00-9:30pm in the stadium. 

Players, with the later practice time, please use your time wisely after school. Take a break, and then use the remaining time to work on your homework. Your reward will be a chance to play lacrosse with your teammates afterward. 

Thank you for your understanding and flexibility, the coaches are very excited to be out there tomorrow evening!

Back to School Reminders

Greetings Riverside Lacrosse,

I hope you all are excited about starting a new school year and about building toward the 2019 Lacrosse Season! The coaches could not be more excited about working with this fantastic group this year. We are going to work hard, see the results of our work, and have a blast doing so!  A couple of quick things that we wanted to get out to you today.

  1. We will be having a meeting for ALL interested in playing Boys Lacrosse this year on Thursday 8/30. We will meet in the Weight Room @ 4:10pm. If you are a Fall Sport Athlete please let your coach know that you will be attending the meeting and that you may be 5 min late to practice. I have spoken with those coaches and they are good with it; however, YOU need to communicate with them.
  2. Those who checked out Riverside Helmets for summer ball, please turn them into Coach Worek no later than Wednesday 8/29. Find me in my office or the main gym. Those helmets need to be sent out for reconditioning.
  3. VEL sign up. If you have not done so already, please sign up for the VEL Fall League. I have spoken with the football staff and they have expressed that they are willing to work with us once the schedule comes out and we can discuss it further. Again, you as a player, need to communicate
  • http://virginia-elite-lacrosse.com/  (Please choose the appropriate Varsity or JV button)  
    • We would like all returning Varsity Players and/or 11th and 12th graders to sign up for the Riverside Varsity team. 
    • We would like remaining 9th and 10th graders to sign up for the Riverside JV Team. 
    • Be aware that after September 1st there will be a $20 Late Fee to sign up. 

                   4. As we start the school year, please remember that you are representing the Riverside Lacrosse program in everything that you do. When you wear our gear people know you. We will be the most respectful, hard working, and positive leaders in the building. That is the expectation and standard set by those before you. Being a Riverside Lacrosse player is special. 

We will finalize the Fall workout/Green Day Schedule this weekend and have that out to you all. Nothing will be starting until the Week of September 24th (last week in September). I will say, we have purchased an amazing workout program that will allow players to track their progress online and we will be stronger and tougher going into this season than ever before!

Go Rams, ALL IN!

2018 Fall VEL League Sign Up

Greetings Riverside Lacrosse, 

We hope that you have had a fantastic summer of spending time with your families, relaxing, and playing a little lacrosse! 

Now it is time to register for the VEL Lacrosse Fall League. This league is very well organized and extremely competitive. Playing against top level competition will help our entire program grow. To sign up please follow the link below. 

http://virginia-elite-lacrosse.com/  (Please choose the appropriate Varsity or JV button)  

*Note: 

We would like all returning Varsity Players and/or 11th and 12th graders to sign up for the Riverside Varsity team. 

  • We would like remaining 9th and 10th graders to sign up for the Riverside JV Team. 

  • Be aware that after September 1st there will be a $20 Late Fee to sign up. 

We feel that splitting the teams this way will optimize each players’ experience and allow them to grow their skills with quality repetitions. Please also note, that playing in this VEL league in no way indicates which team you will be on during the spring season, nor does it solidify a spot in the program. This league is a way for you to improve your game as a player and do so by having fun with your Riverside Ram teammates. 

Tryouts for the Spring teams will begin on February 18th, 2019. We make all decisions for spring teams at that time. 

Go Rams! ALL IN!
