MMLL Update – New Practice Location-Soccer F6

Great first games of the season for both age groups! Before next week’s games, I will send out a roster with kids numbers. Then everyone will know who is who.

We appreciate everyone’s patience today (especially the younger group who arrived early and ended up staying late). Things were a little slow going today and should be better next week. We have a lot of new guys and that takes some time getting going on the first game with some of the rules and general organization that is needed for game play. Hopefully the younger guys were able to watch the big guys a little bit and pick up some tips on how the game moves.

***Special Note***
Practices will now be on Soccer Field 6.  (See attached map image) This was the original plan as we worked out a deal with the Columbia Parks & Rec to use this field for practice, so we wouldn’t tear up the “game” field used by both Football and Lacrosse. The confusion came from Soccer Field 6 not being ready with goals for our first few weeks of practice. We have been told they are now.

US Lacrosse Registration
If you did not include your child’s US Lacrosse registration number and expiration date with your registration, please send that as a response to this email. We will be sending out emails to those kid’s parents where we don’t have this information. It is imperative we have it, as this provides us the liability insurance we need as an organization.

Rain Out Info:
There is a possibility for rain this week, for rainout conditions, we will try to send an email and post to the webpage. However, you can also call the Columbia Parks & Rec Rain Hotline at 573-874-7663. They usually have final notification by 4pm.

See you at practice tomorrow.

MMLL LAX Games This Sunday

We have had a great first couple of weeks of practice. Now it is time for some game action.

Games this Sunday:
The 6-8th grade games will be at 1pm (be there by 12:30pm)*.
The 3-5th grade games will be at 2pm (be there by 1:30pm)*.
*It is important to arrive early to get dressed and warm-up before the game.
Make sure your kids have all of the appropriate gear, including mouth pieces. Don’t forget to bring water.

US lacrosse Membership:
We will have a check in sheet to register the boys numbers to their names. For those that registered online and provided your US Lacrosse Membership and Expiration Date, we will have it on record. If you didn’t, please bring it with you on Sunday. We need this confirmation to ensure we have liability coverage and that no one is playing that is not registered.

Rain Out Info:
While we should not need it this week, for rainout conditions, we will try to send an email and post to the webpage. However, you can also call the Columbia Parks & Rec Rain Hotline at 573-874-7663.

Enjoy the weather this weekend and see you on Sunday!

Registration Reminder and Additional Information

Just a few notes before we head into Spring Break.

If you have not registered yet please do so as this will give us a better idea of the numbers we will have this year. Also, if you know of anybody with kids in the 3rd – 8th grade that are not currently registered in a Spring sport, let them know that lacrosse is an excellent way to get active. Experience in not necessary, even in the upper grade levels. And, I know the high school teams are needing us as a feeder program to support the teams. This is one sport where the current competition for spots on the team is not as restrictive as many of the other main stream sports. This makes it an excellent opportunity for your child to recruit some friends and have to opportunity to be active in a sport at the high school level together.

Also remember that practices start on Monday, April 4th and will be every Monday and Wednesday until the season ends with the final games on May 22nd. So, the last practice will be Wednesday, May 18th.

Games will begin on Sunday April 17th.

Additional info:

Below are the links for the Hickman and Rock Bridge LAX teams. You may want to check out their schedules and check out a game or two. (Specifically, Thursday, May 12th where RB plays Hickman at Hickman to see who takes home the “Golden Cross” this year!)

Have a great and safe Spring Break and see you at the first practice.

2016 Registration Now Open ***CORRECTED INFO***

***UPDATED/CORRECTED INFO***

Hi everyone,

It has been reported that we had a clerical error in our previous communications regarding when practices start in both the email (from Feb 23rd) and the website post on that same day.

I have highlighted and corrected the error in the previous poste below in red, but just to confirm, practices start on April 4th.

We had a great turnout for the first clinic as we had several new boys show up. Our next one is on Saturday, March 19th at 10am at the ARC during the first Farmer’s Market. So, it is a great time to bring a friend and their family to enjoy what the market has and expose them to the “fastest sport on two feet.”

Our last clinic will be next Wednesday, March 23rd at 6pm back at the Cosmo field 6.

Hope to see you there!

Sorry for the confusion.
