Hello Rocky Hill Lacrosse Bantam Families,
I am Patrick Dabrowski and along with a few other parents (Adam Fisher, Scott Schaller and Mike Morgan) I will be coaching the Bantam Boys team this year. I am very excited to coach my son Joey this year as well as your boys. Lacrosse was a big part of my life growing up and I cant wait to share that with the next generation.
Our First Practice will be at 6 PM on Tuesday April 6th at Moser Field in Rocky Hill. Afterwards we will make time for some Q&A and get down to some details. For now, below are the quick hits, including a complete schedule.
We will run hour and 15 minute practices, all at Moser Field in Rocky Hill. We will Practice on Tuesdays (with one Saturday practice on April 10th). We have a lot of beginners so we will be doing a lot of throwing and catching, along with some field awareness stuff. As a coaching group we have one goal. Have everyone register again next year! We want to introduce it in manageable and fun chunks as not to overwhelm and create confidence with the stick.
We are pretty much a Friday night Team! 5 of our 8 Game events are on Fridays (including all home games) with 3 Saturday events mixed in (the last Saturday of season will be a round robin event with Bristol & Middletown in lieu of the Bowers Tournament that was canceled). The teams we are going to play I believe consist of a lot beginners as well. Games will be 7v7 (including goalies).
Everyone needs Helmet, gloves, arm pads, shoulder pads, mouth piece, cup/jock strap and of course a stick. If you are missing something, don’t worry, come to fist two practices with what you have and I may have some things laying around. There will be A LOT of stick work up front so contact will be rare. There is also 20% Dicks coupon floating around too that I will make sure we get out there. We will have goalie equipment so everyone will have the privilege of giving that position a try (we have COVID protocols for sharing goalie equipment, more on that at our first practice Q&A).
There is a COVID agreement that needs to be printed, signed and returned to me. It is on the website, You can bring it to practice OR email it. I will also try to bring a few blank ones to the first practice.
