Practice Assistant Assignments ~ 4th Girls Lax
by posted 03/25/2021

Hi Fourth Grade Girl Lax Parents! I am re-posting practice assistant assignments for those who missed the origial notification - no changes. Please make note of your assigned dates below. Each family is required to assist at two weekday practices. If it wasn't for the volunteer efforts from parents our program wouldn't be what it is. So we thank you in advance! This practice assistant role entails helping the coaches and being an extra set of hands/eyes/ears for our kids. You DO NOT need lacrosse experience. You may be asked to help with the balls, organize the kids, and keep the kids listening and participating while the coach is instructing.  You may also help run a station once the drill is explained by the coaches, etc.  You will also be the point people if a child gets injured, sitting with her etc. 

  • If you can't make your assigned practice monitor schedule, it is up to you to make a switch with someone else.  

Thank you!!! PLEASE write these dates down in your calendars. We will be relying on the practice assistants. If you have any questions, please reach out. And, of course, If you have lax experience and are interested in helping out at more practices or at House League on Saturdays, we’d be thrilled to have you - please let me know!
