Do you know your referee signals?

These are the girls referee signals.  All players should know these.  And it makes parenting less confusing too.

FACEOFF Event: 2017 Season Starting

Do you know your referee signals?

Welcome to the 2017 Lacrosse Season!!

Teams are registered, and assignment to league divisions is imminent for all age groups.  We have teams as follows: Boys 3rd/4th grade, 5th/6th, 7/8th (two teams), and HS.  For Girls we have U13, U15, and HS.  Note that the Lacrosse boys will switch to an age group cut system next year as the girls have already done.  Registration is closing soon so if you have not already registered it is down to the wire, please do so ASAP.  For those who used the registration feature of half early and half later, the 2nd payment will apply to your credit card on file on February 1st.  

The FACEOFF event will take place on Thursday Jan 26th 6:30 to 8 PM (place TBD but on school campus), so pencil it in to your calendar now.  We want all players (with a parent) and coaches to attend this event.  Two registrations will be raffled, and there will be at least one item provided to every player.  Other prizes will be given out as well.  If you rented gear as part of your registration you will need to pick it up at this event.  Club President Laura McMillan will kick off the event, and HS Boys Coach Dan Macca HS Girls coach Larry Dubois will speak as well.  Extra credit hint... take a look at the referee signals in the image with this article and see if you can memorize all of them.

As you probably know we are part of the South Sound League, which is part of Washington Lacrosse, all part of US Lacrosse.  Lacrosse is a Native American sport, and we are honored this year to have some of our equipment sponsored by the Puyallup Tribe.   A big thank you to them for their support.  We will honor this support through our use of Native Design Helmet Wraps, and playing with sportsmanship and heart.  

Other details on the season (with more to come).  Practices will start in February.  Coaches will let you know times and locations.  The two 7th/8th grade boys teams will have assessments on Thursday Feb 2nd and Tuesday Feb 7th at McMurray from 6-8 PM.  More details will be coming directly from the coaches.  

In other planning, the board will be ordering equipment, uniforms, helmet wraps etc for the year, managing the fields needs with the parks district, working with the league to get teams assigned to appropriate divisions, conducting fundraising, and we will be looking for volunteers as well to help with the many items to make this club run smoothly.

In short, the season is upon us, fields are thawing (we hope) and the board members and coaches are excited to get going.  

Any questions, please send them my way.

Hornets End Vultures Season
The Lacrosse season came to a close Friday night May 13th with a hard fought game vs the White River Hornets (WR) at their place. A podcast by Chris Nye and Greg Martin will be uploaded to the website this weekend.

The Hornets came out strong, but so did Vashon. In the early going both defenses held and the first goal was well into the first quarter by WR.  Vashon came back and Kiryk Mozeleski blistered one in from the corner. The quarter was back and forth with WR taking a lead and Vashon matching and it was 4 to 4 at the close.

The next quarter was all White River as their 18 seniors on the roster began to carry the game. By halftime it was 9 to 4. Ex islander David Pugh (now a Senior at Ohio Weslyan University) gave a nice halftime analysis, noting that Vashon was doing a great job of possession on offense, but that White River was dominating in transition and scoring most of their goals that way. They had a couple of players that were blazingly fast up the middle. Adrian St Germain and Dawit Tuller-Ross create a few highlight reel moments with runs that defeated 3 and 4 opponents, but we couldn't seem to get that last pass out of transitions to an open man. The WR defense consisted of three seniors each over 6 ft 3 so with long poles in hand and trying to get by them and their swarming midfielders was like "trying to avoid TieDye and Birkenstocks at the Saturday Market" to steal a line from Chris Nye.   On our side we missed Jack Kelly who is out due to injury.  Despite Vashon's best efforts, they were worn down outmuscled and outrun. The Hornets nearly double team size tipped the scale and the odds became reality as the game extended out of reach. Duncan McMillan had one highlight reel moment when he did a save low, then immediately came up off his knees and made a second save.

We finally managed two goals late in the game, but the final score was 17 - 6.  Scorers were Carleton 2, Schira 2, Mozeleski 1, and Paris Brown 1.
So the season is over but Vashon's team has a lot to be proud of. Starting with Elliot Carleton who finished the regular season as the third top scorer in the state, but more importantly has a full academic ride to Arizona State University. Sophomore Duncan McMillan had a great year in goal. Up in the booth the opposing side made one comment after the game, "your goalie is really something". All the players on the team contributed significantly this year. The Junior class includes midfielder  Dylan Martinez who is spectacularly indefatigueable, Carson Nye on defense who stepped into a leadership role there and not only showed how to do it, but gave critical feedback realtime as needed, and the explosive Dawit Tuller Ross. With two sophomores and 8 freshman the younger guys were a huge contributor and no team we faced matched that. That bodes well for the Vashon Vultures as we see off a lone senior while White River sees off 18. Our uprising sophomores might now be called grizzled veterans, while for other teams that class next year will likely be getting their first taste of the pace of Varsity play.
For now, the Vultures will have to find a perch and gnaw the bones of a rough last game.
