My name is James Reeves and I have been appointed coach of the FWBHS Club Lacrosse Team for the upcoming season. This letter is to introduce you to club lacrosse at Fort Walton Beach High School.
September 8th we held a lacrosse clinic to introduce students to the great sport of lacrosse (The Fastest Game on Two Feet). We anticipated a great turnout but we were astonished to have over 100 plus students, boy and girls, attend. At the clinic, students expressed their desire to continue on with more clinics. We listened and now we average over 50 students each clinic.
As we progress from simple clinics to full pad practice we will begin to require Sport Insurance, Sport Physical, and waivers. Below is the list of mandatory and option items. Student may still attend our clinics every Tuesday and Thursday but will be limited to the type of activity they may participate in until certain items are completed.
Our goal is to turn no one away. We will work with you on everything we can!!!
