Although the spring lacrosse season was cancelled for 2020 the NM Lax board is already making preparations for the 2021 season. We need some help from you in order to have a great season next year.
1) VOLUNTEERS NEEDED - We need parents to volunteer to be on the lacrosse board. Current open positions for 2021 season are treasurer, secretary and president. We also need additional parents to help with fundraising. If you are interested in volunteering please contact a current board member.
We need everyone playing next year to register as soon as we open the registration this fall. We have to commit to how many teams we will have to the league by January. We hope to be able to field enough teams so that everyone gets to play. Once existing teams are full, registrations will be placed on a waiting list until there are enough players to add an additional team.
Last year we had to increase the registration fee to offset the costs to use the Turf field at the high school and the increase costs with registering teams with Mass Bay. The Turf cost is significant approximately $8000 for the season. We believe there is great value in playing on the Turf for games and a significant improvement on playing on the current grass fields. We are hoping each year we will have successful fundraising to help offset this cost in the future but fundraising needs volunteers. Please consider to volunteer to help support this great program.
If you have an interest in coaching as a head coach or an assistant – even if you’ve never played lacrosse – please contact the boys or girls coaching directors soon. Plenty of training and support will be provided. Having coaches on-board early allows us to field more teams and provide more 1-on-1 instruction to the players. There are important coaches training deadlines this winter so please let us know as soon as possible.
