Important Reminders 2/22

Greetings Riverside Lacrosse,

Tryouts have concluded and the season officially begins today. Congratulations to those who made the program and thank you for all that tried out.

As you have probably seen, your player was given a few things last night. Here is the review of those items so we are all on the same page:

  • Impact Concussion Testing:
    • This needs to be done by all players who have not completed it this school year.
  • Fundraising (Two Fundraisers this year):
    • We will discuss more at Tuesdays Parents Meeting.
    • Eteam Sponsor
      • We are on the cycle as a “Spring Sport” to use EteamSponsor this year. This has been a great fundraiser in the past, with minimal work on our end.
      • Please help your son fill out the Participant Instruction sheet with emails of people who may be great donors. This sheet is due back to us on Monday 2/26.
    • Vertical Raise
      • We did this fund raiser last year. It is an online discount card that works all over the country. This fund raiser will only be for our returning program players.
      • We are only using the “card renewal” aspect of the fundraiser and can be easily declined if individuals do not want to renew their discount card.
      • This should launch next Wednesday, and requires zero work from any player.
  • Spirit Pack
    • All players have a required spirit pack that they will be receiving today after school. Each Player receives: UA sweatshirt, UA sweatpants, UA long sleeve shirt, UA short sleeve shirt, UA practice shorts, Game Socks, and other items….
    • Cost is $160. And can be paid on the school payment portal at this link. https://lcps.schoolcashonline.com/Fee/Details/30561/371/False/True
    • If any player has a financial problem with payment, please come see Coach Worek.
  • Team Store
    • You received a flyer last night regarding our team store. This team store is NOT REQUIRED. It has EXTRA spirit pack items if players would like to purchase but remember they will be receiving that gear today.
    • The team store also has A LOT of items for fans, parents, and relatives. There are very nice items on there for you to look at and consider. Brands like LuLulemon, UnderArmour, Nike, Eddie Bauer, and Travis Mathews.
    • Check out the store here: https://bsnteamsports.com/shop/fJFSg4jhbc

Practice today will be a little longer as posted. We should be finished by 8:40pm in the stadium, then players will most likely be out of the locker room by 9pm for pick up.

I think that is all for today 😊 Congratulations again to all players apart of the 2024 Riverside Lacrosse Program.

If you have any questions, please reach out. ALL IN!

Winter Reminders and Update

Greetings Riverside Lacrosse,

I hope you all have been enjoying the winter snow we have been getting… A couple of reminders:

  • If school is ever closed due to weather, we will not have practice or workout that day.
  • If school is on a delay due to weather, there will not be any morning workout that day.

As of tonight, and tomorrow morning. Due to the field being covered in snow and ice, there will be no green day tonight 1/18. The forecast is calling for more snow tonight into tomorrow. If school is canceled or delayed, we will not have a lift tomorrow.

Feel free to work out on your own, run on your own, stick work on your own. Body weight exercises are great.
