Train like an athlete, eat like a nutritionist, sleep like a baby, win like a champion.
And, we're off! Officially. With the SAYLL Jamboree tomorrow morning, all of our teams will have hit the field as of this weekend. All fields are open. So next week, Upper Shaw's Lane, Fisk Field @ DHS, Bellamy Fields @ DHS, and the County Courthouse fields will be in full use. With any luck, the fields will get lined this weekend. Want to help? Call Neal at 285-2783.
Whether it's a practice, a home game, or an away game, please leave your area neat and free of trash. Remember, each of us represents COCHECO LACROSSE. Make us proud. Also, remember to bring more water than you think you'll need. Proper hydration goes a long way to playing well and recovering quickly.
Parents, grandparents, siblings who get dragged along: one sideline is for the teams; all spectators belong on the opposite sideline. Unless you're manning the scorer's table, but that means you can only cheer on the inside.
YES! Registration is still open for MINIs and 1st through 4th grade. Please recruit!
-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 collection: 1-2 days in June; 3 hours each time.
This year's big change: NHYLA has made the move to slotting teams by grade, rather than age. YEAH! So instead of U9, U11, U13 and U15, teams will be First and Second grades, Third and Fourth, Fifth and Sixth grades, and finally, Seventh and Eighth grades.
LEAGUE POLICY: no lax balls allowed inside any house, anywhere. We also recommend avoiding windows and vinyl siding. 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. DOVER MIDDLE SCHOOL boys are welcome to join the DHS team every Saturday afternoon for a free clinic. 4:00-5:30 Also, Houlagans offers a Sunday league in Hampton and Monday night skills sessions at Berwick Academy, (options for boys and girls of various ages). GIRLS: check out York's indoor arena for pre-season opportunities. All of these are great opportunities. GO, COCHECO!
The on-line store is always OPEN! Cocheco gear makes a great gift.

This instructional camp is designed to introduce the game of lacrosse to newcomers, as well as to fine-tune the skills of experienced players and give them the ability to compete and be successful at the increasingly competitive youth level.
Our camp has full use of UNH's state-of-the-art Student Rec Field. This surface is a superb all-weather field that will allow our camp to utilize up to 3 full fields.

Houlagan Lacrosse will be hosting a boy's lacrosse summer skills clinic series Tuesday evenings at Berwick Academy in South Berwick, ME.
Our clinics are unique in that each clinic will focus specifically on one or more fundamental lacrosse skills. Each skill will be broken down into a few basic (and coachable) elements, and then will be taught through explanation, demonstration, and drills. As we build from week to week, we will recap what we have learned, introduce new skill elements, and play some "small-ball" to get the kids playing fast and smart.
All League participants will enjoy this year's additions and changes!
All Games held at the TURF Facility at BERWICK ACADEMY!!
