Welcome 2021 Mini Laxers!
by posted 04/05/2021

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 8th year as President of the Robbinsville Lacrosse Association (RLA), and 10th year as a coach with the RLA.

Our first practice is scheduled for Sunday April 11th, 11:15 am at Blakely Park, Field #3.

Mini Laxers will receive a Mini Laxer T-Shirt, a WARP Mini Lacrosse Stick, and a tennis ball.  We ask any returning Mini Laxers to use their sticks, balls and T-shirts (Uniforms) from last year so we can reduce, reuse, recycle.

----------------------

My fellow Mini Laxer Coaches this season will be Jay Jakubowski (Parent) and RLA Alumni Kennedy Odemheimer (RHS Junior), Alyssa Feith (RHS Junior), Cameron Coyle (RHS Senior), and Brendan Coyle (RHS Freshman).  We will also have other RHS players assisting throughout the season.

The fantastic thing about the above coaches is that not only do they play lacrosse for Robbinsville High School, they are also RLA Alumni.

Coaching alongside them is 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 women and men 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 - https://www.leagueathletics.com/Bulletins.asp?MyTeam=940407&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.

COVID PROTOCOLS:

To ensure we are compliant with our RLA Covid Protocols, we will utilize Team Snap to keep track of our player's attendance at our practices and events.  Prior to each practice/event, a parent or guardian will need to complete the RLA Health Waiver to ensure the player does not have any signs of Covid, nor have they been exposed to someone who has Covid.

We ask that players come to the field and have a mask with them for times when they are not able to socially distance themselves.

We will work to keep them in smaller groups and spread out as much as possible to limit prolonged close interactions.

FOCUS OF THE SEASON:

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.

Never quit… never stop… LET’S GO RAVENS!

Coach Matt Coyle
