As most of you know, my name is Janét Allen and I will be your Varsity team parent for the 2017-2018 lacrosse season. My daughter, Molly, is a Senior on the team.
We are about 3 weeks away from our first game!!
I will do my best throughout the season to keep you updated and informed. However, if you ever have any questions, please feel free to ask.
This email contains a lot of information. I wanted to give you as many dates as possible at this time so you can get them on your calendar. But, I will continue to keep you updated on a week by week basis or as the schedule changes.
In addition to attaching the Varsity schedule, please note the following dates:

The following dates have been selected for team dinners.
March 6 – before the first game
April 10 – before the CDM game
April 25 – before the last game
The team dinners can be held at your house, a restaurant, community center, etc. You can host the dinner individually or with a group of other parents. It is held immediately after practice and lasts about an hour or two. It is a way to get the girls together prior to a game day. The girls really enjoy their time together and appreciate being fed.
Please let me know if you would be interested in hosting a team dinner.
We would like to provide snacks for the girls on away games when they may be there a bit longer as JV plays on the same day.
These dates are:
March 7th @ Northwood

April 5th @ Redondo
April 16th @ Irvine
April 26th @ Uni
Please let me know if you would be able to provide snacks for the team on one of these days.
Again, please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions regarding the upcoming season.
