Welcome to Sandwich Youth Lacrosse!

Boys Travel Teams Practice

Dear Travel Boys Families:

As I mentioned before, the snow is creating a lot of schedule problems that we are trying to work around.  We have been able to secure several time slots next week at Compass Athletics in Sandwich to get in some indoor time prior to our first game on Sunday, April 12th (hopefully).

Listed below are the times for each of the three travel boy’s age groups.  Since Compass’s field turf is on the small side, we are going to divide each age group in half.  Each group (A and B) will practice for 1 hour.  These practices will be in full pads and players should wear sneakers, not cleats.  The area around the turf is not spacious, so anything the boys can put on at home or in the parking lot will make things easier.  These one hour sessions will allow the coaches to evaluate the players and then divide the groups in teams of equal skill and ability.  Team assignments and season practice schedules will be sent out the week of April 6th.
