Hello RLA Mini Laxer Families!
My name is Matt Coyle and this season, I am so lucky to again to be the Head Coach for the Mini Laxers.
For those of you who don’t know me, I am in my 7th year as President of the Robbinsville Lacrosse Association (RLA), and 9th year as a coach with the RLA.
Our first practice is scheduled for Sunday March 29th, 11:15 am at Blakely Park, Field #3.
New Mini Laxers will receive a Mini Laxer T-Shirt, a WARP Mini Lacrosse Stick, and a tennis ball. We ask our returning Mini Laxers to use their sticks, balls and T-shirts (Uniforms) from last year. If there’s any returning mini’s who need another stick or shirt, please advise so we can get a proper count.
My fellow Mini Laxer Coaches this season will be RLA Alumni Paige Embley (RHS Junior), Cameron Coyle (RHS Junior), and Jake Leale (RHS Junior).
The fantastic thing about the above coaches is that not only are they great players up at Robbinsville High School, they are also RLA Alumni.
Coaching alongside them last year was one of the highlights of my coaching career as I can remember all of them playing lacrosse when they were not much older than your children, and now they have grown into tremendous young women and men and echo the teachings we stress here at the RLA. They are great young men and women and great coaches!
We will have other current RLA players and RLA alumni help throughout the season in addition to our above coaches. This is a testament to the great kids we have in our program, (and the great families as well!).
And who knows… in what will seem like blink of the eye, your kids may be helping a future generation of mini laxers some day as well!
Most of our communications will be conducted via our Mini Laxer Team Page - http://www.robbinsvillelax.com/Bulletins.asp?MyTeam=894271&org=robbinsvillelax.com, or via email.
There you can see an updated calendar of events for our team and can also link the team’s schedule to the online calendar of your choice.
The focus of this season will be to help the kids get excited about the game of lacrosse. We want them to have fun while picking up some basic lacrosse and teamwork skills.
It is our hope that after this season, the boys and girls will not only have enjoyed their time, but look forward to coming back (and bringing a friend or four) next year.
