Superbowl Pool!

Lacrosse is in full swing and the NFL Playoffs are here! The Superbowl is right around the corner. It is time to start selling the boxes for our Superbowl fundraiser.


Each box costs $30
Payouts are as follows on game day:

  • 1st quarter: $200
  • Half: $300
  • 3rd quarter: $200
  • Final: $500
This gives a total payout of $1200 and earns the team $1800


Please contact your friends and family to sell these boxes! 100 boxes total.

Here is the direct link to our website store for the pool: http://assn.la/Store/Store.asp…

Once we have all the names, they will be randomly placed in the grid as follows: Player's name that sold the box/ Purchaser (Ex. Gavin Kelly/ Dad)

The numbers across the top and side of the grid will also be randomized. Once the grid is complete, it will be shared!

Code of Conduct

You do not have to turn these into us, but it is very important that you are familiar with them. The league can ask you to produce a signed copy at any time and they are adamant about enforcing conduct this year. They've been asked to produce one for the referees as well.


There is a version for our players (Firebirds/Pumas) in the Registration Packet called Player Handbook. This is also available on the website under Home/Documents. Here is that link:

Firebird Player Handbook


There is a version for all who participate in the Arizona Youth Lacrosse League (Firebird Families). Here is that link:

AYL Code of Conduct (There are sub-links here for Parents, Players, & Coaches)

Volunteers Needed!

Leslie is trying to get away from any direct team management duties and only focus on OTL stuff from a distance (field procurement, district, city, IRS, etc ... ). We have a few people actively involved, but could always use more!


If you can help out with administration (board positions), communication, volunteer coordination, or fundraising (corn hole event this spring) we'd sure appreciate the help! Speak up and let us know!

THANK YOU Firebird Volunteers!
