Good morning Lacrosse fans -
We're only a few weeks away from our Spring 2021 season! While we are still working to finalize many details, here is how things are shaping up:
1) Practice Schedule - The 1st and 2nd grade boys (8U) will practice on Mondays and Wednesdays at the Dondero School in Portsmouth. Practice will be 5:30 to 6:30pm.
2) Game Schedule - The 1st and 2nd grade boys will play in the Seacoast Area Youth Lacrosse League (SAYLL or "sail") against teams from Cocheco (Dover), Oyster River (Durham), and Hampton. The first game is scheduled for Saturday April 10th and the last game of the season will be on Saturday June 5th. We will play on Saturday mornings either at home (Dondero School) or away at fields in Dover, Durham (or Lee), or Hampton. We will play SAYLL games every Saturday morning from April 10 to June 5, except for Memorial Day weekend. For families that are planning to travel during April school vacation week, we will work something out - but there will be games both weekends of vacation week for kids that will be home. We usually do something in-house (intra-squad scrimmages, for example) on Memorial Day, too. The detailed game schedule will be available by April 1st.
3) Team Selection - We have a great group of coaches this year and we will be meeting soon to draft players on to teams. We will all practice together at Dondero, which may help with logistics. The teams will be selected by April 1st.
4) COVID - This year, we will all be wearing masks at all times - even on the field. We are working with the other towns on consistent COVID protocols and will make those available before the season begins.
5) Uniforms - We switched uniforms in 2020 to reversible pinnies and black shorts. If your player does not have that uniform, please let us know at
The online store to order uniforms has closed, but we may have some inventory to sell. If you ordered a uniform online from Atlantic, those will be direct shipped to you in the very near future. Any problems with your Atlantic order should be handled directly with Atlantic.
6) Gear - Dicks is having another 20% off sale next weekend. The coupon will be posted to our homepage again. Otherwise, the boys will be required to wear full gear - Stick, Helmet, Gloves, Shoulder Pads, Arm Pads, and a Cup. Cleats are recommended, but not required. Soccer cleats are fine. Play it Again also has a good selection of used gear.
Thank you for your patience as we iron out the remaining details for the season. We are all excited to get back out on the field and are grateful that the 2021 season is looking good so far. Please let me know if you have any questions - otherwise, stay tuned for information.
Thank you and Go Seacoast!!
