Lacrosse Information Sheet – 2018

2018 marks the second year for the Concordia Boys Lacrosse team. Potential players are encouraged to come and pick up a stick (“Crosse”) and perhaps discover a new sport we are sure they will love.

Practices begin January 18th and will generally be held Monday-Thursday from 4-6pm. Our first game this year is on February 20th. The game schedule runs from February through April and is shown below. For the most up to date game information, refer to the Texas High School Lacrosse League website at http://thsll.org/district_schedule?district=104

Concordia is in Division III, North Varsity, and is a CLHS school-sponsored team. Rules and governance come through the Texas High School Lacrosse League ( https://thsll.org/). Lacrosse in Texas, however, is not a UIL or TAPPS recognized sport. As a result, many high schools in Texas do not have the support for teams, so clubs fill the vacuum. Some clubs use a school name (XXX High School Lacrosse Team) but are not operated under the umbrella or authority of the school whose name they use.   School teams will generally limit practice dates in keeping with UIL or TAPPS standards of other sports while clubs have the advantage of practicing all year long and recruiting players from other schools, which do not have a team.

Equipment & US Lacrosse Membership:

All primary lacrosse equipment is provided except for cleats.   Many players eventually decide to purchase their own gear for personal performance, style and comfort. This also allows them to play for Fall club teams and participate in clinics or camps that do not provide equipment. An annual membership to US Lacrosse ($35) is required for all lacrosse players across the country. This membership includes insurance coverage for Accidental injuries to members as a result of participation in a covered lacrosse activity. For more details, go to uslacrosse.org.

Parent Volunteers Needed!

This year we have six home games and we will need some parental support to help manage the games. Please look for sign-up information. The players will appreciate your help and participation!
