March Sadness!

 

Pursuant to Governor Sununu's order regarding the school year, there will not lacrosse this spring.  Details to follow.

In the meantime, tennis balls make for great practice:  pass and catch with both hands and groundballs in the driveway.  Cardio while watching a movie -- or outside with adult approval.  Keep busy.  Please, please, please, wash your hands and mind the public health recommendations.  Lacrosse will be back before we know it! 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

The Girls 5/6 and 3/4 teams need a few more players.

The WAIT LIST is only for the Boys 3rd- and 4th-grade (u10) roster.

General questions that can't wait for the Parent Meeting, call the respective VP. 

 

Adam Hughes (boys) at 603-781-9392   or   Lisa Stacy (girls) at 603-767-3290

 

 

Indoor and regular season outdoor practice schedules have been posted for the girls teams and will be up shortly for the boys.  See you all tomorrow night -- unless you're not feeling well.  There won't be room for 6' between us, so let's make sure to wave to say hello.  Save the warm handshakes for another day.  The meeting will be done no later than 7:30.  Please, make an effort to attend - and find a way to volunteer at least one hour between now and the end of the season.  There are LOTS of little tasks.  Many hands make light work!

 

REGISTRATION for 2020 is OPEN! Please keep an eye out for off-season opportunities to get a stick in your hand.  Shortly, we will release the dates and locations for indoor practices.  We will likely begin in early March.  There is always room for kids new to lacrosse or to welcome back players who stepped away to play Cocheco Lacrosse this season.  Spread the word!  Early Bird discount is still available for FIRST-TIME Cocheco players.  Indoor schedule to be released next week.

Practices OUTSIDE ... brrr!  For all practices, players need to be on the field BY the start time.   All gear on, including some layers, and ready for warmups.   As our New England spring weather rages on, please be sure to check your email for any schedule changes. GAMES:   Remember this is youth sports.   It's about having fun, being a good teammate, and improving lax skills.  At all times, be respectful to each other, to officials, and to opposing teams.  Whether you're the home team or visitor, whether leaving the team bench or the fan area, clean up your stuff. GO, COCHECO!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Cocheco Lacrosse is a Dover-based youth lacrosse organization serving the towns of Dover, Rochester, Somersworth, Rollinsford, and Barrington.

Additional information about our programs by grade level can be found on the FAQ page. Cost for MINIs is $30, plus the $35 USLax membership.  Team play for grades 1-8 is $185 OR lock in the Early Bird price of $150 by making a deposit before February 15.

 

MODIFY your record: login in the upper right corner.   Enter your email address and password.  Your family record will show.  Use this to add or change an email address, and to register.  If you need more info, send your question to: lmnn@stacy.net. (Asking for help is different than having someone do it for you.)

Hard work beats talent when talent fails to work hard.

PLAYER AWARDS:  Cocheco is a development program; as such, we are not all that concerned with our teams' records.  Rather, our emphasis is on ensuring players improve in measurable ways each and every season.  As players and as people.  MVP designations are traditionally bestowed according to data.  Cocheco gives recognition for contributions that can't be so concretely measured.  Our Nesman and Hitchcock awards recognize the player who works hardest at improving as a player, while Heyliger winners are recognized for being the quintessential teammate. As these character traits and habits are built over time, these acknowledgments start for players in 5th grade.  The awards are given in honor of 3 men who worked so diligently to establish the Cocheco Lacrosse program:  Don Heyliger, Greg Nesmann and Larry Hitchcock.   Coaches will discuss these concepts with their teams.  Feel free to start a conversation at home. The Dover Recreation Department holds an annual Heyliger Awards dinner.  As the season goes on, please watch out for those who go above and beyond in helping make Cocheco such a terrific program for your kids and pass your suggestions along to any of our board members. A list of past winners can be found on the award tabs.  If we're missing someone, please send an email to lmnn@stacy.net 

Registration or uniform refunds are handled on a case-by-case basis.  USLax membership is non-refundable.  Some financial assistance is available. Please contact our treasurer, Kris Cook @ kkcook@comcast.net.
