Registration for Kelly Post Girls Spring 2020 lacrosse is OPEN!
Do not delay registering! We have a cap for each age group. Space is available on a first come, first serve basis.
Evaluations: We held Evaluations on October 7 & 8 at Loyoal University. Players needed to be registered to be evaluated. All players participating in the Development Program, which takes placed AFTER the spring season, must register and attend evaluations as well as a June try-out session.
The October Evaluation was the first step in our assessing the types of teams we will register with MYLA (A, B, C), the number of teams and coaches we'll need, and the types of skills we will focus on this coming spring.
At this time, no team rosters have been developed; if enrolment increases significantly, we may offer a second evaluation over the winter for unevaluated players at an indoor facility to make sure each player is placed at the appropriate level.
Parents, please consider volunteering! We need team parents, coaches, assistant coaches and others for organizational roles (Board members, task committees, etc.). To give your daughters an amazing lacrosse experience, we need the whole lacrosse community involved, which includes NEW PARENTS to jump in and play a role in our continued success. Contact me at email@example.com and we'll find a role for youthat will feel like "play" not another "job" - I promise. CLICK HERE TO SEE OUR SIGN-UP GENIUS

Kelly Post Girls Lacrosse
It is our expectation that any player, who participates in rec lacrosse in the spring, strives to make lacrosse their primary sport. It is very important to understand that once the commitment is made, your coaches and teammates expect you to be at each practice and each tournament.
With that said, we understand that conflict may arise and we are open to working with you. However, our hope is that players and families will work hard with us to avoid potential conflicts. Remember, the more you participate, the better you become and the better your team becomes!
KELLY POST GIRLS LACROSSE
CLINIC OVERVIEW 2020
Thank you for registering your daughter for Kelly Post Girls Lacrosse Clinic!
The purpose of the clinic is to give the girls an opportunity to learn fundamental lacrosse skills in a fun and organized environment. The first five sessions will be spent rotating through stations at which the girls learn different skills; i.e. throwing, catching, ground ball pick up, shooting, defensive and offensive positioning. The last four sessions will be scrimmages.
The season will begin in late March and end in late May. The regular season will be followed by a Fun Day, date TBD, filled with silly relay races, games, a raffle and a barbeque. There will be no session on Easter.
Teams will have a one hour long practice for the first four Sundays at either 3pm or 4pm.
The last four Sundays are dedicated to 30-minute scrimmages between 3pm and 5pm. After teams are assigned you will receive an email from your daughter’s coach with a fixed schedule.
Kelly Post will provide each girl with a team shirt and a pair of shorts. Each girl is expected to bring their own regulation stick, mouthguard, protective eyewear* and water bottle. Please label all items! GIRLS WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO PLAY WITHOUT A MOUTHGUARD OR EYEWEAR! You can get mouthguards, sticks and eyewear at most sporting goods stores (ex: Lacrosse Unlimited, Dick’s, and Sports Authority). The recommended stick length is a little past the arm pit. Talk to the lacrosse associate when buying a stick about appropriate length.
Your daughter may wear either cleats (recommended) or tennis shoes. Also, practices are very cold the first couple weeks; please ensure your daughter is properly dressed with layers.
*Since we will be using regulation balls, girls are required to wear protective eyewear during practice and scrimmages. Protective eyewear must be certified by the protective eyewear certification council (PECC) and must be in compliance with ASTM F803-30 Standards for Lacrosse. Go to www.uslacrosse.org for a list of manufacturers and models of eyewear meeting these specifications and for other information on protective eyewear.
Meadowood Park, field 4 and 6. (Field subject to change)
Address: 10650 Falls Rd., Lutherville-Timonium, MD 21093
In case of inclement weather, please check your email/texts frequently leading up to practice. We are once again using "Rainedout.net" to announce field closures. All field calls will be made by our County Community Supervisor. Once signed up, individuals will receive instant notification via email and/or text of field closures. The service is free, but families must sign up on the site.
To sign up for Meadowood announcements:
Once Meadowood Park appears, follow instructions to receive alerts via sms text or email. Standard message and data rates will apply.
We will meet whenever possible, but recognize that the girls are young and may not endure cold, rainy practices too well! If we cancel a session, we will try our best to make it up.
Teams have been assigned and you will hear from your coaches shortly. All teams have at least 1 coach, if you hear from your coach that he/she is looking for some help, a co-coach or just an extra set of hands…please consider volunteering!!
Thanks for your support of Kelly Post Girl’s Lacrosse! We are looking forward to another great Clinic Season!
