A couple of things to remind all parents so the Games go successfully:
All players are expected to show up dressed and ready to go at least 1/2 hour before the game.
If your player will not be able to attend the game- please notify the coach as far in advance as possible- email addresses are on website- click team and coach name has link to email- if unavoidable last minute- click contacts and call cell phone
For road games- maps are on the teams schedule by clicking field on the schedule section- please plan for travel time and allow to arrive ½ hour before- some field directions are also on the directions tab on the left side of the website home page
2) Equipment: Please check before each game- if you can’t fix- arrive earlier to games
All players are expected to have all of the following equipment to be allowed on the field
Lacrosse stick (make sure all strings are secure and tied prior to each game- each shaft must have a rubber stopper on the bottom
Lacrosse helmet including chin strap that fits- please make sure all screws are tight
Mouth guard- must have mouth piece in players mouth at all times on field- good idea to have extra’s in parents car glove compartment- coaches do not have extra)
Shoulder pads, lacrosse arm pads and protective cup (especially if there is a remote chance of playing goalie). Soccer style cleats are also needed- especially for grass fields like WREC
Water- please provide a bottle of water or suitable beverage for your player for all games & practices (good idea to label with name) also ask your player to throw out empty bottles after practice or game
Stick Repair service information available on website home-page: Mike Surdek
In the event of severe weather- practices & game cancellations will be announced as soon as possible- always on the website- usually by email- there is a text message option available via the website- if you haven’t already signed up for that.
Lacrosse will generally be played in the rain (unlike other spring sports)
Lightning or even the threat of lightning will cause the cancellation or a minimum 30 minute suspension of games- If possible or unpredicted lightning occurs- please have prior arrangements for your child to be picked up as soon as possible
We try to keep website as current as possible- lots of information available
If you need to add email addresses, activate or deactivate text messaging- go to tab on left of homepage; “Parent log into account” tab= enter email & password

As mentioned above- season schedule is listed under each team with links to map of fields. Also coaches & Board of Directors links
Always looking for action shots of players- email webmaster with your photo’s- existing photos can be extracted as well
Always need time and scorekeepers at home games- feel free to come early and volunteer – “great seats”
Lacrosse balls occasionally venture off the field- please be aware of this and especially be careful of little future lax players in the end zone
We have had some success having parents write game summaries and supply pictures to the Transcript- contact coach or Board member if interested.
Lacrosse tradition is based on respect- parents should remind your player that respect is required and expected at all times- this includes respect for all referees, coaches from our team & opponents, teammates and opponents. We will have zero tolerance for foul or inappropriate language, taunting, bullying, and fighting.
The Parkway Lacrosse has the right to suspend or remove players from the program if any of these issues occur- even 1st offense.
We also expect players to respect you the parents- especially when it comes to making time to finish homework if playing lacrosse!
Our goal & Mission is to learn the game of Lacrosse and have FUN- positive attitudes and respect help achieve this goal!
