|Brownsburg Youth Lacrosse -- FREE Intro to Lacrosse Clinic #2 is open for regsitration! - Wednesday, September 11, 2013|
As promised – and certainly considering the great turnout of our first clinic – we are proud to announce we have set the date and time of our second FREE Introduction to Lacrosse Clinic.
Sunday, October 6, 2013
5:00 – 6:30 pm
LOCATION TBD (in Brownsburg)
Yes, that is a Colts home gameday, but it is scheduled for later in the afternoon with the hope that everyone can still make it after either watching or attending the game.
If this is your first clinic, all equipment that is needed will be provided – all you need to do is bring a positive attitude and be willing to learn about the Fastest Game on Two Feet! Our coaches will be teaching some basic lacrosse skills: throwing, catching, cradling, picking up ground balls, etc. - as well as sharing some basics about how the game is played.
If you attended the first clinic, please come out to this one as well. The format will be similar, but we will have different coaches – and for anyone interested in learning more about being a lacrosse goalie, we will have goalie-specific training this time as well!
Word-of-mouth is really spreading about our program – the kids of Hendricks County are excited about lacrosse… and I have heard from many older kids wishing that we had started the program sooner. Come see what the buzz is about!
REGISTRATION IS OPEN NOW!
Go to www.brownsburglacrosse.com to login or create a new account. Parents, enter your information, then add your child(ren), then select the FREE Clinic #2 - OCT 6th - 5:00-6:30 option and answer the questions on the form.
Once registered, you will be notified when we finalize the location – it will be in the Brownsburg area. Don’t forget to LIKE us on Facebook (www.Facebook.com/BrownsburgLax) and follow us on Twitter (@BrownsburgLax).
Lastly, we are hosting a fundraising event – BYL@MOE’S NIGHT – on Tuesday, Sept. 17thfrom 5-9pm. Info on Facebook or brownsburglacrosse.com.
|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 firstname.lastname@example.org or 317-625-4316 or Ashleigh Logan at US Lacrosse at email@example.com 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.
