Welcome to Snohomish Boys Lacrosse Club!

SBLC is a non-profit organization that serves youth boys in Snohomish County. The organization provides a program that is designed to not only teach the fundamentals and competencies of lacrosse but provide a solid foundation of sportsmanship, love of the game, teamwork and individualism, helping each player reach their fullest potential.

Our Club recently split, forming a new Glacier Peak Lacrosse Club. For more information, click here.

Here you will find informational updates regarding registration, practices, game schedules, and important information for your player. **Please login to the website periodically for updated information.**

K/1/2 Red vs. Mukilteo
K/1/2 Black vs. Glacier Peak

 

 

3/4 5 – Monroe 4

 

5/6 Black 5 – 5/6 Red 5

Yes, for the first time in a while, two of our own teams played against each in a league game.

From Coach Jim Milham:

A hard fought back and forth battle against our Snohomish Black brothers ended in a 5-5 tie!  Red scored 2 quick goals to take the early lead, but couldn't keep the Black attack down for long.  Black's fast paced offense soared to a 5-2 lead by the end of the first half.  Our boys fought until the end, as we put one in the back of the net in the 3rd and 2 more in the 4th to tie it up.  Our boys never gave up and even had a chance for the win, with the ball deep in Black's territory late in the 4th as the buzzer sounded.  The score book once again showed great team effort as every player on our roster made it into the score book!  Sammy 'the vacuum cleaner' had 14 ground balls and 2 goals, Wil had 10 ground balls and Colton, Cole and Jackson each had one goal.

Very proud of both teams as they both left everything on the field.  The boys from both teams showed increased ability to move the ball and play solid defense and now come together as one team to shoot for the 3 Rivers Tournament Championship!

Jim

From Coach Jason Roseen:

5/6 Black played great in a hard fought game against their brothers in arms in 5/6 Red. After falling behind early, they stayed with it, fought back to take the lead and were able to hold on for a 5-5 tie.

7/8 Black 13 – Edmonds 2

From Coach Chad Harris:

The boys played close to a complete game with only a slight let off in the 3rd quarter. Off ball movement was great and passing was accurate. This combination allowed for some great assisted goals. Defense was solid and very physical. Our poles had a ton of takeaways. A shout out to Karsen with a couple great clears. Also great job by two of our new guys Hunter and Aiden. They were aggressive and had a couple great looks at the goal.

7/8 Red 3 – Stanwood White 10

From Coach Charlie Green:

The boys had another hard fought game.  The coaches were happy with progress we are making at sharing the ball.  It was the best passing performance of the year.  Ian Cote turned in another great performance at goalie with 11 saves.  We are looking forward to teaming with 7/8 black and getting after it in the Tri Cities.

Varsity

Snohomish 16 – Shorecrest 9 (Apr. 12)

Snohomish 11 – Glacier Peak 8 (Apr. 14)

Our Varsity team won the first ever meeting between Snohomish and GP last Friday in a great game up at GP.

“This will be the busiest week of the season for us,” says Coach Coté. “JV has games on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday this week, and Varsity plays Cascade at Kasch Park on Friday night. GP was a great victory in a very hard fought battle, but we need to refocus on the rest of the season.”

K/1/2 Red & Black vs. Stanwood & Skagit

From Coach Ray: “We had a very impressive performance. I started running plays and even a semi zone defense.  There is very noticeable improvement each week!”

 

3/4 6 – Edmonds Yellow 11

From Coach Ryan Neubauer: “Big shoutout to Nolan Harris who stepped in to help coach this game. He helped the kids come back from a 0-6 hole, and the kids really loved having him there.” And the team wants to give a shoutout back to Coach Neubauer for hustling back from a fishing trip in Montana in time for the game.

 

5/6 Black 12 – Skagit Valley Blue 4

5/6 Red 4 – Stanwood

From Coach Jim Milham:

With 12 players available, all 12 players showed up with tremendous heart in a win against Stanwood Saturday afternoon.  Tied 1-1 at the half, the team came out in the 3rd with raised intensity, putting 3 more in the net, eventually holding on for a 4-2 win.  Great play and effort from our defense and goalkeeper held Stanwood's offense at bay.  Being shorthanded and tired, none of the boys let up, each contributing to the win!  The 4 goals were scored by Sami Flores, Colton Perry, Jackson Beckel and Carson Milham.  Keep working hard boys!

 

-Coach Jim

 

 

 

7/8 Black 6 – Skagit 4

From Coach Brett Wynne:

We had a close one this week with Skagit Valley.  We came into the game down a few players so everyone had plenty of time on the field.  Shout out this week to Tim Owens for putting one in the back of the net to help us squeeze out a W and Caden and Errol at defense for playing tough and getting so key clears.

Varsity

Snohomish will be playing Glacier Peak for the first time Friday night. From Coach Coté:

Friday night is a huge night for our program.  Not only is it a big night for playoffs, but a big night because we are playing our former brothers in arms, GPHS, for the first time.  We need the boys to get the word out at school about the game, have family and friends attend the game wearing RED, BLACK and WHITE gear, and really get our fans to pack GPHS stands. I know the boys are looking forward to it. Let's make it a special night for the entire Snohomish Lacrosse family.

5/6 Black 4 – Everett Blue 2

From Coach Kevin Keith:

The entire team contributed to the win, all working together, with nearly everyone getting some kind of stat in the book. The defense stepped up, as well as our keeper with many saves. Jeremy Hammack was recognized for playing his position well in Attack and creating opportunities for his teammates to score.

Great game boys, looking forward to another great game this week!

Coach Kevin

7/8 Black 10 – Bellingham Black 4

From Coach Brett Wynne:

It might have been the spring break with the boys starting the game off a little slow but ramping it up for the second half. We settled down and started to run our offense effectively moving the ball around. Shout out this week to Seth who is becoming a faceoff beast and also one of our brand new players Aiden who hustled at attack and was able to allow us to hold possession from missed shots running to the end line!

 

7/8 Red 9 – Monroe 4

From Coach Charlie Green:

After falling behind 2-0 in the first minute, the boys rallied and played their most complete game of the year. The boys played tough defense and limited Monroe to a total of 5 shots in the second half. We maintained possession of ball and worked together as a team. The coaches are proud of the boys for sticking together. We look forward to seeing improvement every week as we enter the final stretch of the season. Go Red!!

From Coach Kevin Keith:

It was a hard fought game. We moved the ball around well and had 4 different goal scorers. The boys did not give up and kept fighting back all the way to the last horn. Our keeper, Quentin, kept us in the game with 16 saves! Hats off to Cohen Cook and Mekhi Brenberger who received the Honor the Game.

5/6 Red 5 – Everett Black 2

From Coach Jim Milham:

5/6 Red got off to a bit of a slow start against Everett Black falling behind 2-0 after the first quarter. But the boys responded by turning up the intensity the second quarter to take a 4-2 lead at the half and held on for a 5-2 victory. A strong team performance after a good week of practice. A shout-out to first year player Jackson Beckel who had his first career goal to go along with 5 ground balls. A great team effort with 5 different players scoring a goal a piece: Wil Henderson, Cole States, Jackson Beckel, Ayden Oliver and Cohen Cook. And an all-around great game by Wil who had 11 ground balls and 3 assists to go with his goal scored. Keep up the effort boys!

-Jim

7/8 Black 17 – Bellingham Gold 2

From Coach Brett Wynne:

Snohomish Black came out strong against Bellingham with a fast pace putting up 7 goals in the first quarter. They were able to set up their offense and run it affectively. On the defense side we only allowed 2 goals against and locked down Bellingham's main shooter for 95 percent of the game. Shout out this week to MJ for playing some attack and putting a few in the back of the net!!!!

7/8 Red 2 – Bellingham Black 13

From Coach Charlie Green:

The boys lost to Bellingham black this weekend 13 - 2.  Tough game. The team is improving at faceoffs and Ian Cote is staying strong in goal with another 8 saves.  One of the goals for the team is to keep improving every week.  Win or lose we are reminding the boys to keep their head high, play with heart, and fight until the end for the teammate on the field next to you.  Go Snohomish!

5/6 Red 1 – Everett Blue 7

From Coach Jim Milham:

5/6 Red played Everett Blue at Centennial Middle School. After falling behind early, the boys continued to battle right to the end, never hanging their heads. Game highlights: Ayden Oliver with 1 goal and 1 ground ball, Cole States 1 assist and 4 ground balls, Sami Flores with 6 ground balls, Mason Roseen with 7 ground balls, Colton Perry with 6 ground balls. Our goalies Gabe Ames (4 saves) and Daniel Holmes (5 saves) did a great job keeping us in the game.

7/8 Black 11 – Everett 0

From Coach Brett Wynne:

The boys came out to play last weekend shutting out Everett 11-0!  On the offensive side of the ball they took advantage of fast breaks and broken plays moved the ball quickly.  Defensively we came out with a game plan and it worked to a T!  Shout out this week to our d-poles Errol,

Sylas, Carson and Cado for shutting down their attack making it almost impossible to get a good shot on goal.

7/8 Red 11 – Mukilteo 3

From Coach Charlie Green:

7-8 Red posted their first win of the season against Mukilteo.  The boys are coming together and playing as a team.  Our defense stood strong only allowing 3 goals.  On offense we had 4 different goals scorers.  Great game Red.

SBLC had five teams in the jamboree, all eager to play against someone in a different jersey for the first time this spring. We also had several of our high school players getting on-field referee training.

5/6 Black

From Coach Kevin Keith:

It was a great kick-off to the 2017 Season; high energy and fun out there today. All my boys did great and showed maximum effort. A special call out to Quentin, who was a rock in goalie, and to all my new players for getting their first game behind them! We have a lot to work on going forward but the future is bright. Go Snohomish Black!!

5/6 Red

From Coach Mark Perry:

I am so proud of the boys. They played hard and worked together as a team. Here are a few game stats. We had eight players with a total of twelve shots. We had twelve players with a total of twenty seven ground balls. Wil Henderson with an assist. Cole States in his first game with his first career goal. This shows we have a team that works together. This shows we have a selfless team willing to help each other out. We have come a long way in only seven practices. Great Job 5/6 Red! See you Tuesday. We got work to do.

7/8 Black & Red

From Coach Brett Wynne:

It was great to get back out on the field this last weekend!  It was good to see our veteran players to our brand new contribute on the field.  Looking forward to playing at Lake Stevens High School this weekend to kick off the season!

Quick side note on that, 7/8 Black’s game Saturday will be our first youth game in at least four years at Lake Stevens High School. This is a great chance to invite Lake friends to check out a game. It’s a particularly special homecoming for Coach Brett who played football and soccer at Lake Stevens.

K/1/2 Gearing Up

Coach Ray Riojas and the mighty K/1/2 kids will be practicing for the first time next Tuesday. We have great numbers with this group, which is the future of our club.

 

High School Begins

At the other end of the age spectrum, our high school team also started practice this week under Coach Chris Coté and our fullest high school staff in years, perhaps ever. And the staff is enjoying our largest team since 2013, even after our split with GP.

Coach Coté notes, “We’re very excited to be back at high school ball.  The boys brought a lot of enthusiasm last night.  Our first game at GPHS on March 14 against Woodinville.  We need a big crowd.”

Club Fundraisers Update

We have two major fundraisers this season and the first one can be started now - and I know that some have already started!!!

CLOTHES FOR A CAUSE —
We have done this fundraiser the past three years and it is a great way to raise money, spring clean and NOT sell anything!!!! All you have to do is clean out closets and drawers of old clothes, shoes, bedding, etc. Then ask your friends and family to do the same. It is the easiest way to make money for the club.

I am attaching a flyer for you to distribute and share with your friends and family. The information will also be on the SNOLAX website.

Please start collecting now! Hit up relatives, neighbors, Schools (lost & found items), dry cleaners, Laundromats, nursing homes, daycares, etc. Possibilities are endless!!!

Clothes/textiles do NOT need to be in good condition, bleached, torn or full of holes is all good for this fundraiser. Socks that have lost their match, towels, bedding, shoes, purses, belts - we NEED it all.

COLLECTION Day will be May 6 at Snohomish High School. That is one Saturday when the Snohomish youth teams all have home games and we will have the collection truck at SHS.

FOR NOW - get the word out to your friends & family to start cleaning out closets!!!!

Costco Gift Card Raffle 2017

Our 2017 raffle starts next week with packets going out to families. Tickets are due back on March 29, and first of 10 prize drawings start on April 10. This another area where we could use another couple volunteers to help with distributing and collecting packets.

Questions - contact Susan Scott our club fundraiser coordinator at fundraising@snolax.com

 

Merchandising Is Where It’s At

Just ask Star Wars. Our team swag store will open again in late March or early April, with delivery in time for Three Rivers (see below).

And our window stickers are returning soon, including the traditional design and a new Panther Lacrosse logo. Stickers are selling for $5 each, and will be available from team managers or Molly Perry. Sign me up for 5.

 

Three Rivers Shootout

One of the most fun things we do as a club is the annual Three Rivers Shootout in Kennewick, April 29 & 30. Coaches and team managers have been gauging interest over the past couple weeks, and it sounds as though we’ll have another great contingent making the trip. More details will be forthcoming, but it’s never too soon to make your hotel reservations. Molly Perry has secured a room block at the Pasco Red Lion, where we’ve stay the last couple trips.

Hotel: Red Lion Inn - Pasco

Each individual guest must make their own reservations by calling 1-800-RED-LION (1-800-733-5466) by Friday, April 7, 2017.  They must identify themselves as members of Snohomish Lacrosse.

Group Code: SNOH0428 (zero428)

Premium Guest Room Two Queen Beds    $119.00 + tax. This rate includes the Breakfast Buffet.

 

General Club News & Notes

Communications – Anything related to specific teams and schedules will always come through our LeagueAthletics service, which sends out emails, texts and mobile app notifications. If you think you might not be getting these, please first check your Snolax.com account preferences, which does have options to send no emails or text messages. Clubwide announcements, such as this humble newsletter, get posted to the frontpage of Snolax.com and emailed. We do try to balance getting information out to our members against bombarding everyone with emails. General interest things we find often get posted to our Club Facebook page. The high school team has a dedicated Facebook page too. Finally, we have a Club Twitter @sno_lax, and an Instagram @sno_lax. Some, but not all, Instagram pictures get cross-posted to Facebook, so definitely follow that account.

Club Growth — Despite back-to-back years of splitting the Club (Girls in 2015, GP in 2016), SBLC grew 50% from 2016 in terms of Snohomish/Lake Stevens players. We have 44 first-year players this season and a several more who have returned.

Lake Stevens High School Lacrosse — And speaking of splits, WHSBLA has mandated that Lake Stevens must be an independent high school team for the Spring 2019 season. We will be sad to see our Vikings go, and yet we look forward to an even bigger Wesco Lacrosse conference. Several Lake parents have already started the groundwork, and there’s even a Facebook page. If you would like to help, email and we’ll get you connected.

Current opinion seems to be to keep Lake Stevens youth players (K-8) under the Snohomish Lacrosse program for the near future.

Flexibility — One of the big downsides of the split with GP has been cutting down our available practice space. That moves to another level in March with the additional of all school spring sports, plus our high school team, and the Girls club practices. We’ve been practicing at new fields this year, and that will continue. Long-timers know to expect the unexpected, and we thank you for your patience.

Thank Yous — All of the board, boosters and volunteers have put in a lot of effort over the past six months in this transition period preparing for the spring. I’d like to spotlight two people who are more behind-the-scenes in that they’re not coaches or team managers. Kier Keith, club field scheduler, has gone above and beyond working through the aforementioned fields issue, for not only this year but for the future. Kier formed new relationships with the city and county parks & rec departments informing them of our needs as new facilities are being planned. Jacob Brown, club equipment manager, handled the division of hard assets with GP over the summer and then went right to work getting our existing equipment repaired and new purchased. All fall and winter, Jacob strung goals, built game kits, outfitted goalies, and hauled gear from one end of the county to the other. Thank you, Kier and Jacob, for putting in the work for our kids.
