SVL Season Begins March 11th at the Dome

Spring Lacrosse season starts March 11th at the Hampshire Dome.

I hope all of our River Hawk families are having a great vacation.   Spring Lacrosse season starts March 11th at the Hampshire Dome.  Starting a week later gives us the extra week to extend into the start of spring in case the fields are not ready as has been the case the last few years.

Our spring practices start indoors at the Hampshire Dome on Monday March 11th.   We will practice on Mondays and Wednesdays while at the Hampshire Dome through April 3rd. 

Outdoor practices will be held at Souhegan High School and/or Clark-Wilkins School on Tuesday and Thursdays.  

SVL will also be kicking off the season with our 2nd Annual Spring Jamboree held at SHS Calvetti Field on Sat, Mar 30, 2019 and Sun, Mar 31, 2019.  

First league games start first week of April 7th.  

Finally, we are hosting the NHYLA Festival in June! 

SVL will also be the first youth lacrosse club in the country sponsored by US Lacrosse a unified lacrosse team.

 

Time for teams practice will be posted by the SVP's by the end of the week as rosters are being completed.

 

Thank you,

 

Michael Hannon

President Souhegan Valley Lacrosse Club.

SVL Adaptive Lacrosse Program 2019 Season

Dear Program SVL Families                                                           January 22, 2019

 

My name is Michael Hannon and I am the President of Souhegan Valley Lacrosse and a member of the New Hampshire Youth Lacrosse Association (NHYLA)

In an effort for US Lacrosse to expand its diversity and inclusion goals, US Lacrosse has developed guidelines for adaptive lacrosse programs. SVL will be part of the first clubs in the country under US Lacrosse to bring an adaptive lacrosse program.  This is a great opportunity for people with physical and/or intellectual disabilities to become involved with the game. Our goal is to become a club “where diversity and inclusion are a fundamental part of the values and culture” of lacrosse in New Hampshire. 

The vision for NHYLA, at this early developmental stage, is to field 3 unified coed lacrosse teams. One team to be located in the Seacoast of New Hampshire, one team to be located in South Central New Hampshire (Souhegan Valley Lacrosse), and a third team to be located in the North Central New Hampshire area. Ideally, team size would be 15 to 20 players along with an equal or greater number of youth volunteers from area high schools. Games would take place on Sundays along with the regularly scheduled NHYLA games.

Cost to participating families would be minimal. Each family would have to register their player with US Lacrosse. The current cost for this registration is $35. Equipment would be provided by each team (it would be available at each game/practice). We would be using soft lacrosse balls so helmets and other protective gear would be optional. Cost for uniforms and game officials would be absorbed by the various programs and NHYLA.

Player ages would vary between 10 and 21 years old. The lacrosse season in New Hampshire begins in early April and ends the 2nd weekend in June with the NHYLA Festival. The Festival hosts over 300 New Hampshire youth lacrosse teams, a little over 7000 lacrosse players, and this would also be the final weekend for the unified teams to play.

To register a player parents can go to NHYLA.org, click on Home, Scroll down to Register Online, and choose the area of play that would be most convenient for the family (i.e. Seacoast, South Central, or North Central). It is my hope that we can recruit enough players to fill three teams in New Hampshire.

Spring Lacrosse, Parent Agreement, Uniforms

NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY!

The Spring Lacrosse program will begin indoors at the Hampshire Dome on Monday March 11th and Wed. March 13th for boys and girls. 

We will practice indoors on Mondays and Wednesdays while at the Hampshire Dome.  Last indoor practice will be April 3rd when hopefully outdoors field space will be open. 

Outdoor practices will be held at Souhegan High School and/or Clark-Wilkins School on Tuesday and Thursdays.

First league games start first week of April.

 

SVL will also be kicking off the season with our 2nd Annual Spring Jamboree held at SHS Calvetti Field for the boys and girls being held on - Boys Sat, Mar 30, 2019 and Girls on Sun, Mar 31, 2019

As the start of the season approaches, you will receive more specific information about practice times and locations.  Please also friend us on Facebook and visit our website to keep up to date with important information and details to prepare yourself for the season.

 

Parent Volunteer Agreement - At time of Registration you will be asked to check off on the PVA which includes.

SVL is a non-profit organization and its success relies heavily on parental participation. Each participating FAMILY is required to volunteer 3 HOURS during the course of the 2019 season. This participation requirement includes volunteering at select events as well as performing some of the necessary functions including score keeping and timekeeping during the season.

We will be requiring a $50.00 deposit per family that will be returned at the end of the year after a minimum of 3 work hours have been completed. If volunteer commitment is not fulfilled your deposit check will be processed by SVL.

Volunteer opportunities will be listed on our website.  You will be able to sign up with your team parent when assigned to a team.

$50.00 postdated check will be collected at time of uniform disbursement.

 

SVL Uniforms - Very important for 2019 Season that parents take a little extra time in sizing the uniforms along with proper care of the uniforms.  For 2020, your player will be able to use the 2019 uniform and receive a lower registration fee.  If you need to order a new uniform, you will be charge the cost of the uniform.  We are happy with the new vendor and quality of uniforms.  A number of details need to be worked out to make this happen but we feel confident this will assist in family registration fees and over-all cost of uniforms.
