Declaring Varsity and Jr. Varsity Teams
Being on a Varsity team is a privilege and kids selected to the Varsity teams should be prepared to join the ranks. The Varsity head coaches will decide who will be moved to the Jr. Varsity teams. Week Two of practice, the Varsity coaches will start identifying players for the Varsity level – thus developing Jr. Varsity teams.
Practice Dates: First Day Of Practice July 11th Monday–Friday, 6:30-8:30 pm until the week when school starts.
Once school starts, the practice schedule changes to Tuesday-Thursday, 6:30-8:30 pm.
FIRST WEEK – Shorts and T-shirt
SECOND WEEK – Helmets and shoulder pads with shorts
REMAINDER OF SEASON – Helmet and Shoulder Pads only, shorts, shirt, cleats (non-metal spikes), mouthpiece, practice pants with thigh/knee/hip pads and girdle.
*Purchase practice jerseys and practice pants from Lakewood while supplies last!
There are opportunities for players who are “underweight” to play in a division with younger players but similar weight class. They are called “play downs.” If you are interested in your son being a play down player, please see the head coach for instructions.
