PG Lacrosse Fall 2022 Updates –

Brace yourself this is a long email with a number of topics. Please read carefully below.

Registrations. Please make sure you are registered to play on both websites (IMLAXutah.org and pleasantgrovelacrosse.com). There are a few players that are only registered on one or the other. Please make sure that your player is on both.

Teams. Fall Lacrosse tends to have fewer players registered and we currently are needing a few more players on several teams to field a PG team. There are a few teams, barring a large wave of registrations in the next few days, that will likely need to combine with other local teams for practices and games this fall. Unfortunately, this tends to be a waiting game as we just don’t know.

Coaching. Each team needs a coach and at least 1 or 2 assistant coaches. There are times that we are fortunate and have former players come and volunteer time to coach but generally this falls on the parents of that team to fill those needs. We have several teams that need head coaches and we always welcome more assistant coaches. If you are interested at all in coaching, there is no experience required, please let me know.

Practice days and times. Generally all teams practice at Oak Canyon Fields (2000 N Orem / 200 S Lindon). Depending on availability and field space, each team’s coaches will set their practice days and times. Last Spring the schedule was as follows: Boys 7/8 on Mon/Thurs, Boys 5/6 on Tues/Thurs, Boys 2/3/4 on Mon/Wed, Boys K/1 on Mon/Wed. Girls 7/8 on Tues/Thurs, Girls 3/4 on Mon/Weds, and Girls K/2 on Mon/Weds.

IMLAX league communications have said that practices can begin as soon as Mon Aug 15. I do not think that any of our teams are planning on starting practice next week. The first week of school is crazy enough already. You should hear from someone in the next few days with more specifics for each Team.

Games. The game schedule will be released by IMLAX on Friday Sep 2. Generally all games are on Saturdays. Each team will play 5 games.

TeamSnap. As a program we have chosen to use TeamSnap as a platform to communicate program information, team chats, and have practice and game schedules posted. This is a great place to coordinate carpools to practices and games, ask questions to the coaches, etc. Once you have registered on pleasantgrovelacrosse.com you will be added to a Team for the Fall Season on TeamSnap.

TryLax Clinic. Saturday Aug 20 at Orem HS Stadium – 10:30am. We have a full clinic currently of 65 new players. We hope that a few of these players will join our teams. Coaches Clinic. Prior to the clinic for the players IMLAX is hosting a clinic for new coaches at 9am. This is a FREE clinic and will help you to learn about the sport and how to run drills. Please consider signing up for this if you want to better understand the sport or learn how to coach lacrosse.

GameDay Packages. We plan on distributing the player gameday packages on Saturday Aug 20th at Orem HS from 11am to 12:30pm during the TryLax clinic. There have been supply chain problems in the process, so if there are any changes I will let you know with an email.

Game Jerseys. We tried to order a large resupply of jerseys this summer and ran into issues with our current supplier. We are being told that the jerseys will be in before our first game on Sep 10. We will plan a night to distribute these once we have more information.
