2014 Spring Lacrosse Season
Our season will begin in late March and end by mid-June. Our teams compete within the Connecticut River Valley (CRV) Girls Lacrosse League playing against other Massachusetts and Connecticut towns including other Longmeadow teams and several jamborees and tournaments. There are generally four events (practices, games or tournaments) each week. The individual team schedules are created by the coaches. In the beginning of the season there are more practices but as the season progresses, there may be more games and tournaments. The majority of jamborees and tournaments are not mandatory and none require additional payments. These are meant to provide additional playing opportunities.
Longmeadow Girls Lacrosse Association does ask for a commitment, if at all possible, from the players and parents to participate in the Longmeadow Jamboree and the season-end CRV Tournament. The Longmeadow Jamboree is an extremely fun event sponsored by the organization and is our primary fundraiser. Teams from all over New England travel to attend the one day event. We do not want our players to miss out on the highlight event of the season but also want to field our most competitive teams to keep the event a premiere event in New England and ensure teams continue to attend. The CRV tournament is for the Junior and Senior divisions and is a league championship tournament that our teams work hard all season to play our best team game. The players really look forward to the event and have one of their best days' of their season given the competition and camaraderie with all of their town's teammates.
The mission of the Longmeadow Girls Lacrosse Association is to provide an organized and structured athletic program that promotes a positive, well-balanced coaching philosophy, emphasizing sportsmanship and fair play while building self-esteem and teaching valuable life skills in a safe, supportive, instructional environment. The objective of the Longmeadow Girls Lacrosse Association is for all participants to learn to play lacrosse with emphasis on fun and personal development through self-discipline, physical fitness and respect for themselves, teammates, opponents, referees, and their coaches.
