 Expectations
 

  1. SI Play https://www.siplay.com is great for referring to the schedule, checking the roster during a game to cheer on your teammates, RSVPing to practices and games, etc…  We hope to have a team photographer and videographer uploading to this site after games as well.  (Interested in helping?)
     
  2. Practice / Game attendance: Please open the “Notification” email reminders sent through League Athletics and click the button whether your child will attend or not. This is important because the volunteer coaches spend much time creating game rosters, lines and plans and depend on knowing who will “be there”!  
     
  3. Be on time. When practice begins at 5:30, we expect you to have you child there, suited up, and done chatting with friends by 5:30.
     
  4. Prompt pick up. Our coaches want to get home for dinner, kids homework, etc… Please be respectful to them by picking your player up promptly at  the end of practice.  Arrive early?  The coaches always need help picking up cones and other practice paraphernalia.
     
  5. Game Etiquette: It is tradition for the fans to sit on the side of the bleachers directly opposite their team’s bench. Let’s sit together and amplify our cheering for our team!
     
  6. Keep in touch: www.laxbothell.org www.facebook.com/laxbothell (Like the posts, please! Each “Like” increases our exposure = more players = more fun for all + BONUS of decreased costs!), SI app, read your emails.
     
  7. Practice at home! If your coach gives you homework, do it! Stick In Hand as much as possible, wall ball, etc.  
     
  8. HELP!!!  On the job/On the spot training, No Experience Required!!!

We are always in need of the following:

  • We still need assistant coaches, and practice helpers (shagging balls, etc.)
     
  • Scorekeepers needed at each game
     
  • Spotters at each game: call out to the “bench” scorekeeper when we get possession, ground balls, assists, scores, etc…
     
  • Timer (Home games only)
     
  • Field Set up: place goals, cones and balls in proper position 30 minutes prior to game time (Home games only)
     
  • Field take down: after games help pick up cones, balls, goalie equipment, etc…
     
  • Team Parents for each team: send emails to families for coaches, create Sign Up Geniuses for game help (as described above), create team rosters to hand out to parents.
     
  • Procuring corporate sponsorships or donated equipment, reduce your cost to play!
     
  • Equipment manager for the Club  
     

Why is lacrosse so expensive?
 

Your fees go to pay for dues to parent organizations, fields, referees, and jerseys.

 All positions are volunteer.  How can it be cheaper?   
 

  1. Help the Club through finding sponsorships with businesses. Is your company looking for a partnership with a youth organization and a chance to advertise?   
     
  2. Volunteer as  a coach or board member for a discount.
     
  3. Buy spirit wear! It helps reduce uniform and equipment costs.
     
  4. Car stickers: available soon – direct profit to Bothell LAX.
     
  5. Have other fundraising ideas? Please reach out to us www.laxbothell.org!

     

Want to learn more about Lacrosse?  Check out the US Lacrosse YouTube channel – search “Basic” for beginners tips and skills.
 

Need equipment? A properly strung stick is THE most important piece; the biggest difference between a used $25 stick/head and a new $200 stick/head is how it is strung. Play It Again Sports - Woodinville can restring any used stick so it almost throws like the $200 one.
 

Have feedback?  We are growing and learning and want to hear from you, better yet, come help! Feel free to contact your coaches or reach out to us.
