Happy 10th Anniversary!
Spring of 2015 will be our TENTH yearoffering opportunities to play the fastest sport on two feet
for the following groups:
Boys youth (2nd - 8th grade)
Girls youth (2nd - 8th grade) Boys high school club
Girls high school club
and iLax, our developmental program.
In the summer of 2015 we will host our
6th year of Northwest Corner Summer Men's Lacrosse for high school and older players
4th year of 30-and-up Northwest Corner Summer Men's Lacrosse for the "older" crowd
and 2nd year of Northwest Corner Summer Women's Lacrosse.
As our regular season kicks off, I want to remind you that the best source of information is, of course, your player's coach, but answers to many of the questions we have been getting can be found on our website, www.litchfieldlacrosse.com
Here are some very basic instructions to help get you started:
The Home tab/page will give you access to general info about the whole league (boys and girls). This location gives you access to merchandising, league contacts, registration info, etc.
** The blue tab labeled “TEAM PAGES” gets you to your child's team page. Dial down to Spring 2015 season and then pick your child's program and team.
There you will have access to bulletins, **schedules**, contacts, results, league standings, and rosters (all found on the left-hand menu by clicking on those tabs).
To ensure safety and privacy, the roster pages are password protected. To access the roster, please put in your email address and the password you used to register your child when prompted.
From the Schedule tab you can see notes from the coaches, game times and locations, and opponents. Anything that is colored blue will link you to other spots on the website. For example, if you click on the field name from the schedule, you will be linked immediately to directions to the field!
Multi-Team Schedule: If you have children on more than one team in the program, you can access a schedule that shows several teams at once. You can even color-code the different teams!
Click on the “Multi-Schedule” tab on the blue, left-hand menu. Once on this new page, you will be asked to check the boxes of the teams you wish to see listed in the schedule. Check those boxes and choose the color of each team (drop-down tabs to the right). Once you hit “Submit,” a multi-colored, multi-team schedule will appear. You can even choose the format in which it will be formatted at the top of the page (lists, calendar, etc.).
President / Boys Coordinator
Litchfield Hills Youth Lacrosse
As you all know, LHYL is a volunteer organization that relies on the Board and its membership to keep running. The running of the organization has always been handled by a handful of dedicated folks, but as time has gone on our membership has grown, along with responsibilities, and we are spreading thin....
We are looking for help in a couple different areas. Please read below and if you are able to help out, please email Jeff Porter at
or talk to your child's coach or a Board member.
Volunteer coaches / assistant coaches are always needed, even if you haven't played the game you can help out by aiding coaches running stations at practices or simply by keeping the kids inline (literally).
Boys Juniors, Girls Lightning, and Boys iLax are currently in need of good, level-headed coaches/assistant coaches.
Contact Jeff Porter if interested and I can tell you what is involved.
From time to time we need work done at the fields or items transported here or there. We need weekly help in-season in keeping the lines at all of our fields painted. Even if we had one or two parents who would split the task of refreshing the lines at Bantam and/or Morris fields once a week that would be a huge weight off of coaches who try to fit that in to their already busy schedules.
HOME GAME CREWS:
We would like to get back to having tables set up at our home games at the various fields to sell various items like drinks, snacks, etc, and logo gear like hats...
Believe it or not, it puts quite a bit of money in the kitty by the end of the season for the Club, BUT we need folks to run it: Set-up, breakdown, and split time "working" at the table for the games. One or two parents from each team and we would be all set!
A parent (or two) that can help the coach, when needed, for things like handing out and recording uniforms, collection of the same, handling the team water for games
Very helpful for the U15 and High School level teams.
As many of you know, Connecticut now has a professional men's indoor lacrosse team, the Black Wolves, out of Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville.
As a member of the LHYL group we get discounted ticket pricing. See flyer link below and remember to use the code "LITCHHILLSYOUTH" when ordering. The 2015 schedule is also linked.
