Girls 3/4 and 5/6 Muddy's Buddies Update
by posted 06/03/2017

For all 3/4 and 5/6 girls playing in the Muddy's Buddies tournament at Brighton tomorrow, the weather forecast is not great for tomorrow but plan on the games going on as scheduled. The turf field should be fine but we will likely have to fight some rain throughout the day. In the event of thunder/lightning, the games will be suspended for 30 minutes and then will likely start back up on schedule with some games being canceled. All of that information will be communicated over the PA system at the event. If games are stopped due to weather, please do NOT leave until you hear from your coach. Expect communications to be done via the SI Play app which also sends emails and text messages.

For the 3/4 teams playing in the morning, parking will be limited in the Brighton High School parking lot as the Brighton Farmers Market will be going on until 1:00 pm on June 4th. Your best parking option will be behind the Brighton Central Office and Twelve Corners Middle School at 2035 Monroe Avenue, 14618.  All of the games will be played on the stadium turf field which is directly adjacent to that lot. Cleats, turf shoes or sneakers are all appropriate footwear.

Finally, there is room for tents, so feel free to bring a tent for some protection against the elements. Just check in at the t-shirt tent when you arrive and someone can direct you from there.

Girls Youth: Join the Wallball Challenge!
by posted 06/02/2017

Girls Youth Laxers:

Want to improve your passing and catching while competing for prizes from Pittsford Lacrosse? Join the US Lacrosse Wallball Challenge currently running through June 30! All details are here (be sure you check out the FAQs at the bottom of the page): http://www.uslacrosse.org/players/wallball-challenge

When you create your account and login, use the appropriate team code in the table below so we can track your reps. 
Note that your device must always be connected to a wireless network for the app to function correctly.

Just find a wall, rebounder, or partner and get going. Not sure what do do, or getting bored? Try this routine. Mix it up as much as necessary, or split it up into multiple sessions, but be sure you get plenty of time playing both righty and lefty. Also, pay attention to technique. It's better to do fewer reps with perfect technique than a lot of reps with poor technique. This challenge is about getting better, not just doing a lot of reps.

  • 3 minutes Throw Right, Catch Right
  • 3 minutes Throw Left, Catch Left
  • 3 Minutes Throw Right, Catch Left (switch hands after throwing the ball and before it comes back)
  • 3 Minutes Throw Left, Catch Right (switch hands after throwing the ball and before it comes back)
  • 90 seconds Behind the Back Left, Catch in front
  • 90 seconds Behind the Back Right, Catch in front
  • 90 seconds Throw Right Cross-face, Catch Right
  • 90 seconds Throw Left Cross-face, Catch Left
  • 90 seconds Throw Right, Catch Right Cross-face
  • 90 seconds Throw Left, Catch Left Cross-face


What are the prizes you ask? I have no clue! I'll figure something out for at least the top 3 girls on each team. If you have ideas or donations (e.g., gift cards, etc.) then let me know. The more donations we get, the more prizes we can give. Although the BEST prize is improved skills.

Now go get balling!

Pittsford Lacrosse Girls 3/4 03209

Girls Youth: Opportunities to Watch Lacrosse this Weekend
by posted 05/25/2017

Girls Youth Laxers:

Memorial Day weekend is here and that means it's time to watch some lacrosse instead of playing!

The Pittsford Girls Varsity team kicks off the Section V Class A tournament on Saturday, 11:00 AM. They play Fairport, at Honeoye Falls High School, 83 East St, Honeoye Falls, NY 14472. Wear your Pittsford gear and come cheer the team as they look to do even better than their state finalist showing last year! Note that I think there might be a small admission fee for sectional games, so have some cash just in case.

On Friday are the Section V Class B semi-finals at Pittsford Sutherland High School. It's Brighton vs. Webster Thomas, at 5:00 PM, and Canandaigua vs. Spencerport at 7:00 PM. If you happen to be available, check it out. Here is the bracket: http://glaxfive.net/tournaments/brackets/bracket_form.php?class=B

This weekend is the NCAA D1 women's championship. The semi-final games are on ESPN3 (streamed online) on Friday, May 26, at 5:00 PM and 7:30 PM. The championship game is on ESPNU (TV) on Sunday, May 28, at 11:00 AM. Here is the bracket: http://www.ncaa.com/interactive-bracket/lacrosse-women/d1. Get some friends together and watch these amazing athletes compete.

Remember that all of the high school and college athletes you see used to play in youth programs, or even possibly started in middle school. In other words, they were just like your daughters are now. Let's keep the game fun for our girls and they will continue to play and improve year after year.

Enjoy the weekend!

Girls Grades 1-6: Update on Cinco de Laxo
by posted 05/05/2017

Girls Grades 1-6:

I received official word that the Cinco de Laxo tournament is postponed until next Sunday, May 14 (Mother's Day), due to field conditions. The same schedule and field locations apply.

I know this is not the best situation as this is the same weekend as Mother's Day and the Irondequoit soccer tournament. PLEASE let your coach or me know ASAP if you have any restrictions in your schedule. We will make necessary adjustments.

The tournament info is on this page: http://pittsfordlacrosse.org/Page.asp?n=108697&org=PITTSFORDLACROSSE.ORG. For the 1st/2nd graders, you have an email from Ashton Maaraba with the details.

Girls Grades 1-6: Cinco de Laxo CANCELLED
by posted 05/05/2017

Girls Grades 1-4:

I have received unofficial word that the Cinco de Laxo tournament on Sunday has been CANCELED. They are supposed to be sending an email officially canceling.

I will send another email once I have details (e.g., if there is a make-up date, etc.).

As of now, we have NO lacrosse this weekend.

We do not know the status of the fields for next week, so it is still a day-to-day situation. Stay tuned for an update on Monday.

Keep the stick in your hand and play catch as much as possible.
