SPRING TRIP MEETING DATE AND LOCATION
Arizona Group Players Only - Please mark your calendars. There will be an Arizona Trip meeting on Sunday, March 4th at 6:00 pm in the Council Chambers at City Hall. We will go over the logistics for the trip, discuss any questions or concerns that players/parents have, and get player forms reviewed and turned in (the forms will be emailed prior to the meeting).
If you have questions or concerns about the trip, please bring them to our attention at the meeting so we can address them there. If you are wondering or worrying about something, chances are others are too.
EVERY PLAYER ATTENDING THE ARIZONA TRIP AND ONE (OR BOTH) PARENT(S) NEEDS TO ATTEND THIS MEETING.
JEFFERSON SPRING ACTIVITIES NOW OPEN
Starting on Tuesday, January 23rd, the Jefferson Activities Department along with all 3 Middle Schools (Oak Grove, Olson, Valley View) will be opening online registration for spring sports and activities.
Additionally Coach Cater will meet with the 9th-12th graders at school during the second half of Advisory on Wednesday, February 28. At that time he will go over some information about the season and hand out additional forms that are lacrosse-specific and ask that parents make their second booster club payment for 2018. Note to 8th grade families, forms will be distributed to your players by either Greg Gilbert (Olson) or Todd Walsh (Oak Grove) and parents will be emailed the information from the meeting as well.
Please remember that your athlete must have a valid, current sports physical form on file with the school district in order to participate in high school sports. Sports physicals are valid for 3 years. Please contact Stephanie Kasel at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about Jefferson registration.
PARENT "FUN-RAISER" DATE CHANGE!!
Please note that the Parent FUN-Rasier Date is in the process of being revised due to unforseen circumsatnces. The party will no longer take place on March 3rd. Please stay tuned as new information should be coming out in the next week or so.
This parent event serves many purposes. It raises funds for the boys and girls JagLax programs, allows parents to win great prizes, builds a closer JagLax community, and lets parents relax and have fun together for an evening! We are currently looking for help party planning and gathering donations from player families and corporate sponsors. If you are able to help out please contact Nancy Lowe at email@example.com .
WINTER TRAINING 2018
Winter Training starts on Wednesday, January 3rd (7-9PM) with the Attack and Defensive units. Middies first session will be on Monday, January 8th (9-10PM). All sessions are at the Savage Dome, at 13500 Dakota Ave. S. in Savage.
For those not familiar with how winter sessions are typically broken up, the first half of the schedule (January through Mid-February) will have players divided into positional groups, with different groups being assigned to different (but equal) sessions. The second half of the schedule divides players into performance groups rather than positional groups. As in years past, the performance groups will be called Blue and White. The group assignments for Blue and White will be released at a later date after the off-season coaches have had the opportunity to work with players for a while.
LSMs--Please report to your sessions with D poles.
NEW LACROSSE PLAYERS TO THE SPORT--For the first session or two, please report with the middies. The coaches will assess whether you should be placed in a different positional section and communicate any change to you at training.
All players must be current on their fall Booster Club payment ($160) and their fall pie card fundraiser (sell or buyout 20 cards) to participate in off-season training. Checks for either, payable to Jefferson Boys Lacrosse, should be sent to PO BOX 385222, Bloomington, MN 55438.
We are excited for the boys and the team to see these sessions get started, and continue down the path to excellence!
