We are back and ready to go! For anyone who does not know me my name is Chris Heese and I will be the coach of the team along with Jeff Thomas. We can't wait to get back on the field.
I wanted to let everyone know the practice schedule for the upcoming season. We will be starting practices on Monday March 1st from 4:30pm- 6PM. Practices will be held every Monday, Wednesday and Thursday at Village Green Park (3590 N. Carefree Cir, 80917). I have decided to hold our parents meeting for the first 10-15 minutes of our first practice. I look forward to seeing everyone and please bring any questions you may have.

Our regular season game days will be on Saturdays starting April 3rd and continue through May 8th. Some weeks we will have a double header and we may play on Saturday and/or Sunday. The schedule has not been released but all of our home games will be held at El Pomar (2212 Executive Cir, Colorado Springs, CO 80906) and away games will take place in the greater Denver area. I understand we will only have one week of practice before our first games at The King of the Rock but I believe the boys will be ready to go.
We all have busy schedules but practice is essential for success in the game of Lacrosse and I would really appreciate high participation in practices. I will always try to get all of our practices during the week so make up practice will be held on Fridays.
The practices will be full contact and the boys will need all of their equipment. This includes Lacrosse helmet, shoulder pads, elbow pads, mouthpiece, cup, gloves, and stick. Cleats are highly recommended. If you do not have the equipment Pikes Peak Lacrosse offers a rental program and the rental request form can be found on the website.
We cannot wait to get the season started and if anyone has any questions please feel free to contact me. Many questions can be answered by the website. I will be sending out reminders for practices and you will be able to respond if your child will be able to make practice. I would appreciate it if you are not able to attend a practice to please let me know so I can plan practices accordingly. One last thing and a critical component of our team will be finding a parent to volunteer for team manager. The responsibility of team manager will be to set up a sign up sheet for snacks after the games, as well as little things throughout the season. Please let me know if you are willing to be team manager ASAP.
I believe at times like these sports are crucial to our young and am committed to doing everything I can to have a safe and fun season
