STILL ROOM FOR Girls at 8U and 10U (1st- 4th-grades).  On the fence?  Come to a practice.

PRACTICES are starting this week. 

PLAYERS:  pack your gear bag.  Be on time to take the field dressed and ready for the first whistle.


First- through 8th-grade:  register for 2017 team play.  Every kid is on a team and everybody plays throughout each and every game.  That's the best way to improve and have fun.

Kindergarten or pre-school:  register for MINIs on Saturday mornings.  MINIs is a COED introduction to the sport of lacrosse, focusing on having fun while learning the basic skills.  This 6-week program utilizes drills, small station work and activities to keep kids moving and engaged.  Soft balls and smaller sticks are used.  Lacrosse games are NOT played until players are able to catch, throw and move with the ball. Participants will only need a mouthguard and sneakers.  Each will be given a stick, a ball, and a t-shirt.  For more timid kids in the first grade:  try MINIs this year.  Timid covers:  not sure about team play or not sure about lacrosse so hesitant to buy all that equipment.  Your call.

Want more details?  FAQ in the vertical menu to the left. 

UNIFORMS:  will be handed out March 11 from 9:30-noon at the Dover Senior Center in the McConnell Center on Locust Street.  For each player, bring a $50 check, made payable to Cocheco Lacrosse.



-For each home game, two people need to man the scorer's table to keep time and track penalties.  See your coach or team manager.  TIME:  1-4 times during the season (home games), 90 minutes each time.

-Team Manager:  see your coach for what your team needs. This is one of those jobs that takes an hour during the week, then you're done when the season is over.

-Field maintenance:  there are big parts to this and little parts.  Please contact Neal Stacy to discuss your interest level and time availability.  For example, line whole fields or just use spray paint to touch up the crease and mid-lines on days when we have back-to-back home games.

-Board positions:  current president and secretary will need to be replaced after the season.  Please talk with Micheal Gallipo or Lisa Stacy regarding these jobs.  Also, we have 3 open, at-large positions to fill.  Monthly meetings and whatever ad hoc or committee assignments you wish.  NHYLA Liaison:  monthly meetings in Manchester, then report to the board.  SAYLL Liaison:  occasional meetings (lots done by email); report to the board. 

-Uniform distribution and/or collection:  1-2 days in April and/or June; 3 hours each time. 

LEAGUE POLICY:  no lax balls allowed inside any house, anywhere.  Avoiding windows and vinyl siding is just plain smart.  Backyard sheds are available at the discretion of the homeowner.  Pre-season skill sessions/league play is recommended.  If not possible, use free time to play catch, practice cradling, and get in some conditioning workouts.  A half-hour show is a great time to jog in place or do toe touches.  All pre-season opportunities are broadcast as they come across the desk.  GO, COCHECO!

The on-line store is always OPEN!  Cocheco gear makes a great gift.
