They are last year models but they're still really great helmets. We need to know by TOMORROW (3/23/) if anyone is interested.

RELAX Parents and Players

RELAX Parents and Players,

Thank you for being patient with us during the last couple of weeks. We have finally set our rosters for the Spring 2017 season.  

The goal is provide manageable sized rosters to allow the girls ample playing time at the appropriate competitive level.  When registration numbers allow, there are "A" and "B" level teams in each grade. This year, based on the number of registrants, we have combined grades to balance the rosters according to levels of ability. Unlike many other sports and lacrosse programs from other communities, we DO NOT cut players from the program and are inclusive to all who have registered.  
 
Each team will be receiving an introductory email from their head coach in the next day or two with more information on the season. We will also be adding practice and game schedules to your team page here on the website.  Please contact your coach as soon as possible if you know that you will have scheduling conflicts during the season. 
 
As always, we thank you for your continued support, and we look forward to seeing you all on the field!
 
Adam Lanehart
RELAX Director

Don't put your stick down!

WALL BALL is one of the best things you can do to improve catching, throwing, and shooting. All you need is a wall, your stick, and a ball.


Improves:

  • Accuracy
  • Stick Skills
  • Passing
  • Shooting
  • Catching
  • Dodging
  • Conditioning
  • Hand Eye Coordination

Strengthens:

  • Wrists
  • Forearms
  • Body Trunk
  • Core
  • Shoulders
  • Legs


For Best Results:

  1. Find a flat brick or concrete wall at least 10 feet high, the longer the better. You have permission to use the big outside wall of the gym at Barlow, the one that faces the septic field.
  2. Every drill that you do — do it with both hands.
  3. Stand 5-7 yards away from the wall.
  4. Practice this routine at least 4-5 times per week.
  5. Each practice session should be at least 20 minutes. If you finish all drills in less than 20 minutes, repeat starting with the drill that challenged you the most.
  6. Use your ipod!
  7. Have fun!


Wall Ball Drills:

  1. Quick Stick with no cradle.  (50 right, 50 left.)
  2. One hand Quick Stick, no cradle. (50 right, 50 left.)
  3. Quick Stick, change hands each time you throw the ball while the ball is in the air, no cradle. (50 right, 50 left.)
  4. Both hand catch and cradle, with one quick cradle. (50 right, 50 left.)
  5. One hand catch and cradle, with one quick cradle. (50 right, 50 left.)
  6. Face Dodge: Catch, face dodge, throw. (50 right, 50 left.)
  7. Split Dodge: Throw right, catch right. Split dodge to left hand, throw left, catch left. Split back to right hand.  (50 right, 50 left.)
  8. Cross handed, weak side. (50 right, 50 left.) “Cross handed” means stick in right hand on the left side of body, or stick in left hand on right side of body. One quick cradle each time.
  9. Behind the back. (50 right, 50 left).
  10. Pass and Catch on the move, side to side.  (Go for 30 seconds, rest for 30 seconds, repeat 3 times.)
  11. Develop your own drill.  Be creative and make sure you use both hands
