Welcome to our new players and their families and welcome back to our returning players and their families to Crown Point Lacrosse! Please refer to this document as needed when completing the necessary paperwork.
We are excited to be in our 7th youth season and love watching the progression of our teams. Several of our 14U coaches from seasons past will be joining us again this year as it promises to be even better than the one before it.This season our youth teams will join the IBLA (Illinois Boys Lacrosse Association) League which will provide us with more teams to play and a proper schedule. Over the course of the next season, our 14U team will practice, play, scrimmage, and compete over and over and will attend up to 2 travel tournaments. Indoor practices begin once weekly in February and move outdoors twice a week by the end of March. Games will begin in early April and conclude in early June.
(14U lacrosse is open to boys and girls, US Lacrosse boys lacrosse game play and rules apply and full gear is required)
TEAM PHILOSOPHY AND EXPECTATIONS
14U & 12U
The mission of the Crown Point Lacrosse club shall be to provide student athletes and families with an opportunity to develop their lacrosse skills in a safe environment that promotes personal growth and excellence while fostering teamwork, leadership, scholarship, and respect for others and self. Also to develop players skill in a competitive environment that prepares them to compete and contribute to the best of their abilities during their years of playing for Crown Point Lacrosse Club and beyond.
The 14U and 12U players will be considered transitioning from developmental to competitive play. The participants will continue to build on essential basic skills while introducing the player to more advanced lacrosse skills. We wish to provide a positive experience by utilizing the learned skill sets during competitive playwhile nurturing cooperation and sportsmanship.
Each player is expected to participate equally at practice and other lacrosse team events. We realize some players may not be at all practices while others will be at more practices. As such, we must remain fair and equitable to the player’s playtime in direct proportion to participation levels. Also, the participant’s skill level will be continually evaluated during practice and games. We will do our very best to create proportional playtime for each participant based on participation and skill evaluation.
We thank you for your understanding and cooperation with the goals and expectations of the 14U and 12U teams. We hope each participant has fun while taking their lacrosse game to the next level.
Team communication will be via email, SI Sports App, team website (www.crownpointlacrosse.com), Facebook (Crown Point Lacrosse) & Twitter (CrownPointLax). Please subscribe/friend these services to receive all team updates and remember to check your email for pertinent information or opportunities.
