Welcome to the MLAX Season!
by posted 03/05/2020

Hello Montville Lacrosse Girls 10U Team!

Welcome to the 2020 Season!

I am Coach Todd Frechette and will be the Head Coach this season. As many of you know, I have been coaching lacrosse for several years now. I started 7 years ago when MLAX became a league as a boy’s coach for my sons and then transitioned to the girls game with my daughters. I really enjoy working with the younger kids and teaching them how to play the game.

If at any time you have questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to call or text me at 860-625-9199 or email at  .  

Season Information
All practices and games will be posted on our Team site at www.montvillelacrosse.org. Indoor practices are already posted. Outdoor practices will be posted soon, as we are finalizing that schedule. Games will be populated as each team adds their home games. Once we move outside in April, we will typically meet 4 days per week. Games will take the place of practices, and not add to them.

We start with indoor practices this Friday from 6pm to 7pm at Wide World of Indoor Sports on Rt. 85

Outdoor practices start in April once Parks & Rec allows us to use the Camp Oakdale fields.

Equipment

All players must have a stick, mouthguard and goggles. Cleats are recommended, and always bring a water bottle. There are new requirements for goggles this year. All goggles must have a SEI certified stamp. Please see this link for more information and for a list of approved goggles. 

Team Communications

This is probably the most important part. Please, please, please make sure that your parent profiles have your email address AND your cell phone number. You also must pick your cell phone carrier for text messages to work. Please log in and check this NOW.

All Team communications will occur through this web site. The schedule is posted here for you to check. The schedule can be automatically synchronized to your cell phone, computer, and other devices. Please do this so that if I update the schedule, it will automatically update your calendar.

There is also an app that supports our web site and is great for keeping our team connected. It is called SI Play. I will be sending you an invite directly from the app. Please join the app to keep up on scores, team information and to post pictures, etc. It looks like it will be fun to use and keep the team connected.

Parent Meeting

A parent meeting will be scheduled soon. We will be going over the season, informing about changes to team make ups, about our philosophy and expectations of all of us.  We will also have signup sheets for volunteer needs, including our Mix of the Sticks day and fundraisers.

Parent Volunteers

We are always looking for parent volunteers and parents to move in to coaching positions. We will be looking for parents to volunteer for the following:

  • Team Parent(s) to help organize team activities, fundraiser coverage, organize jamboree days, etc. Please consider helping with this aspect of the team so that the coaches can concentrate on coaching.
  • Time Keeper and Score Keepers.  Each home game we require a score/time keeper. It’s the best seat in the house!! Please volunteer at the beginning of each game, unless there is someone that wants to do it every game. 

I think that is enough information for now. Please see other information posted on the www.montvillelacrosse.org homepage for information such as equipment requirements and game/practice expectations. I am always available for any questions.

See you on the field,

Coach Todd
