MYL MESSAGE FROM CHRIS GODEK, PRESIDENT

Hello everyone:

               First off, I would like to welcome everyone to the 2017 Milford Youth Lacrosse Season.  I hope you are as excited as we are to start the season.

               This year, we will be using the new turf fields near the YMCA. We will still utilize our old fields as well, so please make sure to stay updated. The best way to do this is through the MYL website.

 

I would like to welcome back all of our returning players and welcome all of our new athletes. Some things we would like to make you all aware of….

              

24 Hour rule: Coaches should not discuss any try-out related situations, a game incident, or a situation that occurred during a game that has provoked and adverse emotional response or created a hostile situation until at least 24 hours after the incident.

-Note about the24 Hour Rule: Lacrosse can be an emotional sport. It is of utmost importance for parents to separate emotion from a child’s sport’s development The battles for the ball on the field should be the only one there is. Sometimes it is not the case.  The intent of the 24-hour rule is to move a potentially emotional or confrontational conversation away from the presence of our players. Coaches and parents are to wait 24 hours, to allow the parties to “cool off”,  

 compose themselves and put the provoking incident or situation that occurred in or during the game into perspective.

 

 

“Car Coaching”-    We have all done it… “Hey Chris what happened out there”, or “Why didn’t you shoot when…”, after a game or practice… Quite simply try to refrain from it. Please leave the criticism to the coaches. Coaching on the ride home will only serve to frustrate your child. The best thing is to let them know how proud you are of them, how hard they worked, and MOST importantly how much you love to watch them play. Below is a link to an article a friend sent me a couple months ago.http://www.huffingtonpost.com/rachel-macy-stafford/six-words-you-should-say-today_b_3863643.html

Instead of asking: How did you do?

Ask: How did the team do?

 

              

We have been told by the city that the fields will be available to us after April 1st.  We will communicate more on field availability as we get closer.

               If you have not heard from your coaches, you will in the upcoming week…

 

 

In closing, I and the rest of MYL look forward to an exciting season of lacrosse.  

 

 

 

Chris
