7/8 Boys - practice help
by posted 05/04/2021

Good evening 7/8 Boys team!  

We need help at practice.  You do not need to coach lacrosse, you just need to keep kids in a line and tell them when to GO!  If you have the time, please be proactive and let Coach Alex know that you can help at that practice.  The coaches will explain the drill and you just have to make sure they play responsibiliy.  

I have encouraged Coach Alex to seek out parents who are in their cars if he needs help.  

Other coaches from some of our other teams are trying to assist too, but we could really use the help of the 7/8 team family.

If you can only assist once or twice through the season, we will take the help.  

Managing the mass of 44 players is difficult - please help us make practices more effective.  

If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know.

Thank-you for the help, Marc

Week of May 3rd

  Uniforms are in and should be distributed at practice on Thursday.  Normal practice schedule Monday, Tuesday, Thursday.

Games Sunday May 9th - Home on the SHS Turf Field

11:00 Team BLACK vs Saco Gold

12:00 Team RED vs Saco Maroon

Most of the roster changes and requests have been completed.  If there's any issue, speak with coach Z on Thursday and I'm sure we can accommodate.

Last, I watched the first games on Sunday and was delighted at how well the kids adjusted to the full field game.  Still lots of things to work on but it was great to witness a solid foundation and players that want to PLAY.

Updated mask guidelines
by posted 04/28/2021

Please note: Scarborough Youth Lacrosse will be following the Maine Principals Association's updated mask guidelines. See below for updated information...

High school athletes will no longer need to wear face coverings during outdoor competitions, the Maine Principals’ Association announced Wednesday.

The announcement comes a day after Gov. Janet Mills announced that masks are no longer mandated outdoors.

As part of the changes, the MPA announced that:

•  Masks are not required for outdoor practices and competitions.  Masks are recommended when 6 feet of physical distance is hard to maintain, such as for athletes on the bench. They are also required when individuals go inside to use locker rooms or restrooms, or when on a bus.

•  Spectators are not required to wear a mask at outside events if they are able to maintain 6 feet of distancing.

Goalies and Defense
by posted 04/27/2021

7/8 Boys Team

By way of email to Coach Z and I, we'd like to know which players are interested in the goalie and long-stick defense positions.  By saying they're interested, it will not make them our teams' goalie or D permanenty, nor will it guaranty they won't be asked to play one of these positions over the course of the season if we don't hear from you.  First year players should probably not raise their hand unless they're comfortable with a short stick.

Examples:  Ben Kerbel, 7th Grade, Goalie;  Jimmy Lax, 8th Grade, Goalie and Defense;

Thank you,

April 27 UPDATE
by posted 04/27/2021

Scarborough 7/8 Team:

Nice to see everyone knocking the dust and rust off at our first practice and grateful to have this season underway.  Lots of important information to follow – READ ALL OF IT.


Players are still being evaluated and so the rosters for teams RED and BLACK will be sent out on Thursday of this week.  WE WILL HAVE AN ADDITIONAL PRACTICE THIS WEEK ON FRIDAY APRIL 30th.  This will be a scrimmage and gameplay walk though and will be from 5:30 to 6:30 at Black Point.


Uniforms:  If you missed the first practice and haven’t picked up your game jersey, they’ll be available before and after practice the week.  Shorts and shooter shirts have not yet come in and I’m unsure if they’ll arrive before our first game.  If they don’t, please have the players wear black or red shorts and undershirts for the games.  Additionally, as a Scarborough team, we want the kids wearing Scarborough colors, this includes practice - So no blue or yellow or green, and definitely no maroon.  Red, Black, White, or Gray only.
