Tri Town Tribal Lacrosse Parent and Player Expectations

Outdoor Practice:

Practices are held twice a week. Players are expected to arrive at practice dressed in full equipment and ready to play. Coaches cannot stay late or be expected to drive players home. Parents are welcome to stay and watch practice. As with anything in life, attitude is everything. Though every player who attends practice will get playing time in games, those who exhibit a "good attitude", hustle, learn skills, demonstrate good sportsmanship and are attentive will get more game time than those who do not.

Attendance:

In order to expect to play in any game, players must attend at least one of the practices the preceding week. Preference for playing time may be given to those players who attend both practices. Among those who attend both practices, playing time, again hinges on attitude, skill level and willingness to hustle.

Coaching:

Tri-Town Tribal Lacrosse relies on volunteer coaches who have lacrosse playing and/or coaching experience.  There are also coaching clinics for those who have never coached lacrosse and for those who have but wish to brush up on rules and techniques. Parent involvement is actively encouraged.

Parent Role:

The success of the child’s experience hinges on the cooperation, support and interest of the parents. Please support the Tribal coaches by getting your child to practice and games on time, with the proper equipment. Cheer on the team at games. Help drive to away games. Throw the ball with your child. If parent’ show an active interest in the program, the whole experience should be a positive and fun time for all.
