2019 Varsity Boys Lacrosse
Our 2020 regular season will begin on 2/3/2020. We practice Mon. - Fri. from 6:45 - 8:45pm in the NAFO stadium. Practices beginning on 2/3/2020 are mandatory. Our Game schedules is posted on the right hand side of this site and will be posted within the Varsity and JV sub-sites as individual events. Please be aware of the season selector in the upper right to display the proper schedule. I.e; Preseason, Regular and Playoffs.
In summary, the high school season is broken into 3 parts.
Off Season - Begins in early September - the end of November with weights and conditioning two days per week and NaFo Boys Lacrosse Club led practices once or twice a week where the boys will likely play some small sided games to maximize touches. This will last a couple of months. Neither activity is mandatory; however, both are highly encouraged.
Preseason - December 9 – January 29, 2020. We’re limited to 20 days of practice during this timeframe. None of these are mandatory practices; however, they are highly encouraged. For new players, this is a great way to get a head start and meet some new friends. Most new players get a lot of small group work at these practices in preparation for the regular season.
Regular Season - Begins on February 3, 2020 and goes through mid April (JV) / end or April (Varsity).
Please see http://schsl.org/index.php/lacrosse/ for additional details. NaFo Lacrosse provides helmets and gloves beginning in the preseason. Players need to supply their own stick(s), shoulder pads and elbow pads. They can get used ones at Play It Again Sports. Our coaches are happy to work with any new players to gain a competitive advantage. We have new players every year and we put them in a position to succeed.
There is a cost to play which will likely be $650 per player which includes your $100 athletic fee which is collected by the NaFo Athletic Booster Club, approximately $160 in gear (a sweatshirt, a pair of sweatpants, a pair of shorts and two shooter shirts) and approximately $85 in away game snacks and meals during the regular season. The remaining $305 per player is used to cover ongoing expenses. Once again, NaFo Lacrosse provides helmets and gloves beginning in the preseason. We are self-funded and attempt to reduce everyone’s fee by offering fundraising activities for all players including getting sponsorships. Please offer to join our fundraising or sponsorship committees.
