Blueberry Banana Reminder
by posted 05/15/2021

 Hello Parents and Players. 

Both our Lightning and Junior teams played amazing today. The players are playing the right way. They run hard, pass to the open player and play defense. Both teams also dominated the ground balls!!!!

Tomorrow is the Blueberry Banana rematch. ALL Lightning and Junior players should attend. Looks like a great day for some lacrosse.

Blueberry Banana Game Part 2
by posted 05/10/2021

Hello Parents and Players,

Based on the great feedback received and the great effort put forth by the players in our last Blueberry vs. Banana game, we will be having a second Blueberry vs. Banana game this Sunday, May 16 at 10:00 am at the field in Bantam.  

Given how close the last overtime thriller was, we will keep the same rosters for this game.  

The Lightning Players are getting more and more comfortable playing with the Juniors in practice.  My hope is that they will continue to assert themselves and find some success in this Blueberry Banana game this weekend.  

Both teams have joint practices this Tuesday and Thursday and both have a home game on Saturday.  

Looks like great weather this week.  I look forward to seeing everyone this week and this weekend.

For Juniors, the split squad roster for Saturday's game will come out either tomorrow or Wednesday.

Thank you.

3 Players will supply their own water bottles.  Water bottles are not to be shared under any circumstances.
4 Players will not share equipment.
5 Players will not attend team functions if they have any symptoms on the COVID checklist.

2 Coaches will take and maintain attendance for all practices and games using the COVID checklist.
3 Coaches will respect the wishes of our opponents regarding COVID protocol.  (This includes players wearing masks on the field if our opponents request that protocol.)
4 Coaches will enforce player responsibilities, including mask-wearing, equipment sharing, etc.

Family / Spectator Responsibilities:
