IF YOU DO NOT SEE YOUR NAME ON THIS LIST THEN PLEASE REGISTER AT THE LINK ABOVE OR CONTACT ME ASAP.


Attention All Coaches and Team Administrators,
 
We have finally been able to put together a schedule for the first 2 weeks of the fall season. It has been posted on the league website and everyone who has registered should have also received an email as well. We will be pushing out the remainder of the fall schedule within the next week and we greatly appreciate everyone being patient as worked through all these issues with this unique season. We are requesting that everyone please communicate with your respective programs regarding the following:
 
-Schedule
-All coaching staffs that are fielding multiple teams in the league are being requested to divide their teams up as evenly as possible. This fall season is more about getting the student/athletes on the field than it is about winning and losing. We as a league are not going to keep track of wins and losses and there will not be a championship of any kind at the end of the season. Programs are being encouraged to participate in the KC Heartland Lacrosse event the final weekend of the season (Oct 24th-25th). You must register with them if that is your preference. For those who are not playing in that event, we will construct a schedule for the final Sunday and finish the season. 
-BV School District rule that there are no fans permitted on or around the field of play
-We are limited to only 45 people on each field at a time and that number will be comprised of the 2 teams playing as well as coaches, officials, athletic trainers, and field managers.
-Teams waiting to play will have to stage outside of the playing area and wait for the field to clear before accessing the field. This will obviously present somewhat of a challenge getting the players warmed up and ready to play so please make sure that you athletes are stretching in the parking lot prior to their game.
-Everyone who is not actively playing in a game must be wearing a face mask as well. This includes coaches, field managers, athletic trainer, and players on the sideline.
-We as a league are responsible for doing everything, we can to follow the rules that the BV school district has implemented and we have already been told that if we are found to be in violation of their rules, they possess the ability to revoke our contract and at that point the fall season will be cancelled.
-Please let your respective parents know that if they have issues with the rules that have been put in place have them feel free to contact me and I will help them understand the situation and how at the end of the day it is about us giving their student/athlete the ability to play the game they love.
-All players will receive a penny/jersey on Sunday before their first game. With how things have played out this year, everyone will receive the same color jersey that is reversible and we will basically be playing all games light vs dark.
-We are utilizing both of the fields at Blue Valley North HS (12200 Lamar Av Overland Park Kansas 66209) and they are labeled as Field East and Field West.

All,

Many parents have been asking for a fall training option for our girls.  We have been hard at work and have a Fall Training session to add.  Fall Training is seperate from the league-sponsored 7v7 Fall Ball on Sundays.  Training will be with Coach Will Garrett.  Will is an exceptional coach and he and the club will work together to put a curriculum together that will make the girls better all-around players. 

Monday will be small group (~10 girls) sessions working specific skills. 

Saturday will have small group training from 9-10 and from 10-11am the girls will have free play where they can work on perfecting what they learned that week. 

All sessions will be at Porter Park in PV.  Be aware capacity is limited for the Monday session and we will have to open another up if it gets too big.

Monday and Saturday sessions 8 weeks (16 sessions) is $250.
