Spirit Wear Store Open

Mav Family,

Our Spirit Wear store is now open.  You can access it by clicking on the “Spirit Wear” link at https://www.mvhslacrosse.com.  We appreciate Dot Starks amazing work on it this year where we think a pretty straightforward but accurate description of Mavs Lacrosse was developed.  The store will be open through Jan. 31st where all orders will then be submitted for production and we plan on having them for hand-out during our next team meeting February 12th; we are cutting it close so if they are not ready by the meeting they will be soon afterwards.  Please print and bring your receipts for pick-up.

Speaking of the next team meeting, it is scheduled for 6:00pm on February 12th and attendance is considered required by all players as well as at least one guardian/parent of the player.  It will again be held in the MVHS cafeteria.  A lot of information is covered, and we will also be collecting a uniform deposit check for $125.00 which will be returned at the end of the year when the uniform is returned.  Please bring with.

The try-out dates are still being finalized though it should start on the weekend of Saturday February 16th or early into the next week.  We absolutely cannot let your boy onto the field for try-outs unless we have their physical, concussion, and player agreement completed and uploaded at https://mavslax.zenpig.net.  You can access the same page by going to our website then going to the “Parents and Players” menu heading and drop down to the “upload docs” link.  With school back in session and if needing an already completed player physical now is a good time to have your boy get with an MVHS athletic trainer to get a copy.  This applies to Seniors and Sophomore that have one from the previous year or any year athlete that has participated in an athletic sport such as football this year and has one done already.  Otherwise, your player will need to complete the physical and have the paperwork uploaded/turned in.  Again, there is no exception to this rule for insurance purposes.  Thank you, btw, for those who have already uploaded the docs.

So, get fashionable with some Mavs gear which at the same time helps support the program.

Thank You,

MVHS Lacrosse

Lacrosse Helmet Order (Updated)

Mav Family,

We note there has been an interest this year from some who want to purchase lacrosse helmets and seeing if we can come up with a deal as has been done in years past.  We have been in contact with LaxID and they are willing to work with us on the Cascade S helmet which is the latest model but will need to verify at least 6 orders.  These helmets run $329.99 but if we can confirm 6 orders LaxID will be able to order them at $249.99 apiece.  Last year the same was tried but we could not reach the minimum order so hopefully we can now.

 

If you have an interest in this offer please that you do want to take advantage of this and once we hit 6 we will notifiy you and you will need to go down to LaxID and pre-pay for the helmet.  They do state there is about a two week turn-around time once the order is submitted which will be done as a group order.  We and LaxID do ask for a timely trip to them to place the order if we hit the minimum.  Their address is 8189 Westpark St, Boise, ID 83704

 

The helmet is matte gray which is the required helmet color to play on the Varsity team.

 

Thank you,

MVHS Lacrosse

 

***Update

We have received enough interest in this offer in order to fullfill the minimum of 6 orders.  We do ask that for all those who want to take advantage of this to visit LaxID by their closing time of 7pm this Saturday the 12th and pre-pay for the helmet.  Just let them know you are with the Mountain View Mavs so they can track you as part of the order.  LaxID informs us that the turn around time once ordered is approximately two weeks.

IHSLL Player Registration

Mav Family,

The IHSLL (Idaho High School Lacrosse League) has decided to update their website to a new platform and are asking all parents to register their players.  No player can be assigned to a roster until this is completed.  It is straightforward.  Have your players US Lacrosse # handy and where it asks for a team name just enter “Mountain View”.  There is also a “note” section where if there is any important information the league should know such as, for example, a players allergies, just enter it in.  It’s a mandatory section so if there is nothing to add just put in “Mountain View HS”. 

Register at:

https://ihsll.sportngin.com/register/form/463788316

 

Some of you may already have a Sports Engine account which is the platform they moved to.  You can log in first and choose to connect your SE account to the new IHSLL website, but you will still need to register using the provided link. 

Thanks for your cooperation.  The IHSLL is wanting this to get done as fast as possible.

1st Team Meeting Recap

Thankyou to all who attended our first meeting of the season on Tuesday evening.  We intended to keep it as short as possible with the information we needed to convey and even with coach Nava given the floor we think that was achieved.  The Mavs board would like to recap the information for those who did not attend and just add any info that may need clarification.  Some main points are that we would like all players registered by the first payment due date of Dec. 4th.  We will shortly be sending out orders for the spirit packs and to ensure your players receive one need to have this done.  As well, we are in need of goalies and anyone who registers as a goalie will have their full spring registration dues refunded at the end of the year.  Goalie gear will also be provided.

2019 Registration Open and First Team Meeting

2019 Registration Open and First Team Meeting

 

Spring 2019 Registration

 

We're rolling now.  Registration for the Spring 2019 season is now open to all 9th - 12th graders.  We're expecting to be able to field 3 teams again this year and look forward to another successful year of Mtn. View Lax.  The cost is being kept the same as last year, $410, and you do have the option of splitting it up into three payments with $135 due on 12/4/18 and 1/15/19 and a final payment of $140 due on 2/14/19.  The full dues can also be paid for ahead of time if you choose.  Please note for all the great volunteers who assisted in our Boise Open and Fit One opportunities the player and parent credits have been applied to your account; please let us know if you do not see them.

 

Please be aware that if your boy is selected for the Varsity or JV "A" team we are planning a pre-season trip to Reno, NV this year for those two teams March 15th and 16th which is mandatory for the player to attend and which will also include an additional fee.  The cost is still being worked into the clubs budget and we expect between $100 to $125 per player which will cover travel to and from, overnight lodging, and food.  Instead of the two games per team we have traditionally done in the past two seasons when travelling we currently have three games per team scheduled.  For the JV "B" team we are looking at a couple of different pre-season options/tournaments and don't forsee any additional cost for the players unless it requires an overnight stay.

 

To register for the 2019 season please click on the green “Register” button.

 

1st Team Meeting

 

Keep November 27th open which will be our first team meeting from 6:30pm to 8:00pm in the MVHS cafeteria.  Instead of a chili feed this year we are going to fill you up with pizza and talk about needed volunteers to required documents like physicals and mandatory concussion acknowledgements.  Expect to receive more detailed communication between now and then but a couple of main points is that if your player is a Freshman or Junior who has not had a physical yet please plan ahead and schedule one with your physician.  For those Freshmen and Juniors who have already had a physical (football players, for example) you will need to contact an athletic trainer to receive a copy of it so we can have it on file...due to HIPAA regulations that request typically has to come directly from the player.  Regardless of grade level, if this is the first year of High School level sports and has not completed a physical yet one is required.  The Idaho Health Examination and Consent Form is found at http://files.leagueathletics.com/Text/Documents/21483/58980.pdf.

 

We do recommend if one hasn't been done to have a baseline(concussion) test completed.  St. Lukes offers them for $15.  https://www.stlukesonline.org/health-services/procedures/baseline-impact-testing

 

We would like for all players and family to attend the meeting and so we have a head count for pizza please RSVP at https://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090f4ea8ae2ca6f49-mtn

 

Thank you,

MVHS Lacrosse
