Brownsburg Lacrosse - FREE Clinics - Friday, July 11, 2014

 

Brownsburg Lacrosse will be hosting FREE Introduction to Lacrosse clinics for both Boys and Girls.

Boys -- SUNDAY, JULY 13th from 4-6 pm

Girls -- SUNDAY, JULY 20th from 4-6 pm.

Clinics are for any child in Kindergarten thru 12th grade who are residents of Hendricks County or other nearby areas.

These clinics are for new, or nearly new, players who are interested in learning what lacrosse is all about and are looking to try it out prior to purchasing lacrosse equipment. We will provide sticks and will be using soft balls so no other equipment is necessary.  We will teach players some of the fundamentals: throwing, catching, cradling, ground balls and shooting.  Players will rotate through stations - getting a chance to experience each skill.

Registration is required and can be completed at www.brownsburglacrosse.com. After registering as a parent and entering your child's information, a list of available programs will come up.  Select "FREE Clinic - BOYS - JUL 13th - 4:00-6:00pm"  or "FREE Clinic - GIRLS - JUL 20th - 4:00-6:00pm" and complete the information required.  After registration is complete you will receive a confirmation email.  Once we finalize the location you will receive that information -- it will be somewhere in Brownsburg.

Please arrive by 3:30 so we can get each player checked in and provide them with their stick.  If they have a standard lacrosse stick they can certainly bring it to use.

Please help us spread the word by forwarding to any friends or neighbors who might also be interested in learning about the fastest growing youth sport in the country.

NOCSAE Approved Lacrosse Balls for 2014 - Thursday, September 5, 2013

As you may know, as of January 1, 2014, ALL lacrosse balls used for play MUST have the NOCSAE seal on the ball (it must say “meets NOCSAE standard” on the ball).

NOCSAE is the National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment, who commissions research in sports medicine & science and establishes standards for athletic equipment. To read more about the rule change, please read the article, What’s in a Ball? which originally appeared in Lacrosse Magazine in January 2013. 

This rule was inserted into the rulebook last year but we urge you to send a reminder to the local league leaders, program administrators and coaches reminding them of this rule before they order balls for the 2014 season. 

This is a rule change for the boys and girls game. Manufacturers are making these balls but they have not hit the shelves of retailers to date. It will be beneficial to order now from your local retailer to be placed on a list and not wait for the spring, when quantities could become limited. Officials will be reminded that only balls with the NOCSAE seal will be allowed for play and we don’t want games canceled or postponed because of this change. 

If you have questions you may contact Leslie Sherman, Indiana Chapter US lacrosse President at lesliedsherman@gmail.com or 317-625-4316 or Ashleigh Logan at US Lacrosse at aslogan@uslacrosse.org or 410-235-6882.
 

 
Brownsburg Youth Lacrosse partners with the Hendricks County Community Foundation - Thursday, September 5, 2013

 Brownsburg Youth Lacrosse (BYL) is extremely proud to announce their partnership with the Hendricks County Community Foundation (HCCF), through the new Brownsburg Lacrosse Organization Fund.

By becoming a fund of the HCCF, BYL will be under their nonprofit 501(c)(3) status and will be able to take advantage of the benefits that come with it -- most importantly the ability to provide a tax deduction to all individuals and businesses who donate to or sponsor our organization through HCCF.

The HCCF will provide guidance to BYL as we grow, so that at some point we can apply for nonprofit status of our own. And we at Brownsburg Youth Lacrosse will provide a beneficial youth activity to the community which the HCCF serves.

As part of the mission of BYL, all participants will be required to perform at least one act of community service per season. This requirement was part of the plan for BYL before this partnership was developed and now the possibilities for that have greatly expanded through the organizations under the HCCF umbrella.

The HCCF works to improve the quality of life in Hendricks County by helping donors match their passion with community needs, awarding grants to nonprofit organizations and projects, and collaborating to address community issues. The HCCF manages an $8.5 million collection of funds that were created by individuals, families, businesses and organizations for charitable purposes. In 2012, the HCCF gave over $640,000 in grants to charitable organizations and scholarships to local students. For more information, contact them at 317.268.6240 or visit www.hendrickscountycf.org.
