Firebird Individual/Team Pictures

Tuesday, February 23, 5:00 pm we will take individual and team (coaches too!) pictures at Chuparosa. Meet near the playground and wear your uniform (blue side). We will start with the youngest first (8U) and do the 14U last since the JHS kids are rushing from school. Gilbert & Mesa players - you too! Feel free to wear your Firebird uniform or your home team. We use these pics in the program/yearbook. You can also pre-purchase digital copies here: http://www.assn.la/Store/Item.asp?id=39315&n=&org=oneteamlacrosse.com. When processing is complete, a download code will be emailed to you! All proceeds ($15) go directly to the Firebirds!

Car Decals

I will bring them to the field next Tuesday. Bring $10 or pre-purchase here: http://www.assn.la/Store/Item.asp?id=39330&n=&org=oneteamlacrosse.com

You can still purchase a Shout Out to your player to be added to the program/yearbook! $25 goes toward supporting your team! http://www.assn.la/Store/Item.asp?id=24181&n=&org=oneteamlacrosse.com

MID-SEASON GAME DAY REMINDERS

  • Equipment checklist: helmet, shoulder pads, elbow pads, gloves, cup, cleats, stick, jersey, shorts, socks, MOUTHGUARD, water, healthy snack.
  • Meet at your first game field. Do not interfere with any ongoing games. Your coaches should tell you how early they expect you to arrive for warm-up.
  • Equipment bags should be lined up neatly, closed, with all equipment inside. Every. Single. Time. This helps players keep track of their equipment and discourages theft.
  • Coaches prefer you do not leave the field between games. Stay with the team.
  • Make sure you are signed up for Remind so that you receive last-minute text notices such as field changes and rainouts. Instructions are at the bottom of every newsletter.
  • Players do not leave the field until sidelines and home base are completely cleaned up. This includes trash, player equipment, team equipment.
