WAX Spring Registration is OPEN!

 

November 19, 2014

WAX Families,

Last year, this note led off with "Cold weather, wind, and rain" ironic, because it looks like history is repeating itself this year!

The 13th season of Westminster Area Lacrosse will be here before we know it and registration for Spring 2015 lacrosse is now open.

To register, go to www.waxlax.org, and click on the orange "Registration" button. As always, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact a WAX Board member for assistance.

Speaking of Board members, we have had a few changes to the Board. Longtime volunteers John Coakley and Beth Nave have stepped down after many years of endless service. Saying thank you does not do justice to the amount of volunteer hours they put in, but I'll say it again...thanks. Last year, WAX provided opportunities for over 600 children to play lacrosse. It takes a lot of volunteers to do so, and we are always looking for more help. Please consider volunteering. To that end, we have 3 new volunteers joining the Board this term. They are Jay Albright, Meghan Bunting and Andy Cignatta. If you have any questions regarding WAX, any of our Board members would be happy to help!


If you're thinking of coaching, WE WANT YOU! Don't forget to register as a coach using the Volunteer to Coach registration online. WAX will hold several coaching seminars over the winter, so be on the lookout for more information.

The process of player assessments and team assignments will begin in late January, so please register early!

Expect practices to begin in the mid-February time frame. Outdoor practices will start March 15th. First games for all ages, except Pockets, are tentatively scheduled to start March 28th. Pockets will get a little later start - once the weather warms for the little guys and girls. Don't forget to mark your calendars for the annual WAX DAY extravaganza, which will include the Juniors, boys vs. girls, Graduation Game. This year, WAX DAY will take place on Saturday, May 2nd.

In the immortal words of former WAX Director John Coakley -- Thanks for "sticking" with WAX!

Regards,

Bob Jenkins
Director
