DS Girls Lacrosse is always in need of parent volunteers. We can use your help on or off the field. If you've never even seen a lacrosse game, or if you're a former star player, we need you!
Here are some ways you can help:
Coach or Assistant Coach Head coach assumes primary responsibility for coaching a team during games, and works with other coaches to run weekday practices. Assistant Coach helps the head coach at games and helps at weekday practices.
Don't worry if your skills are rusty or you've only played boys lacrosse! Our team, our league and US Lacrosse offer on-line and in-person training session that cover everything from the basics of holding a stick, catching and throwing (for new coaches) to the finer points of offensive and defensive strategy (for more experienced coaches).
Practice helper We can certainly use parents who just want to come to practice and play a small role such as manning a "station drill." No training necessary! If your schedule allows you to be on a field during our afternoon practice times this spring, we can find a role for you.
Helps the coaches communicate with team members, refs, brings game and score/time-keeper supplies to games and helps DS Girls Lacrosse administration (uniform and equipment managers) interface with the team.
DS Girls Lacrosse administration We are always looking for help on the administration team. Raise your hand! We'd love to have multiple volunteers for each area.
The Jamboree is our end-of-the-season tournament. It is usually held mid-June and is always a fun day of lacrosse. We play three to four shorter games against other towns; lots of food, drink, and lacrosse gear for sale; and the emphasis is on FUN! We need all kinds of help preparing for and managing our involvement in this event. Let us know if you're interested.
