Weekly Update: Week of February 12, 2018

Hello Angels,

We had a lot a happen this week. On Wednesday, we celebrated two student-athletes, who signed to play lacrosse at the next level. Senior Luke Sawyer signed to Rollins College (DII) and Carter Haskell to Ohio Wesleyan University ( DIII). Congratulations to these young men and to their future in academics and athletics!  

Next, I would like to thank everyone that supported the Denver City Lax fundraising effort and for all the players, parents and coaches that came out today to encourage the participants in the race. Shout outs go to Landon Hovey who led the fundraising effort and to Jake Hefty and Elijah Bruggeman who finished in the top and ran the race in under 30 minutes!

For this week we will be indoors on Monday, hopeful we will be able to return outside on Wednesday. Please meet tomorrow in the commons at 4:45pm. 

We are getting closer to the season and it’s that time where players need to make sure they are cleared to play. Players will need aYELLOW CLEARANCE CARD to be able to participate on Day #1. This means you need an updated sport physical, pay to play fee and all required paperwork on Family ID. The paperwork and registration times can all be found on the East High School website athletics page http://east.dpsk12.org/athletics-activities/athletic-registration/

Only a few more weeks until go time!

Questions or concerns? 
Players can contact Coach McCarthy directly in Room 239 or cell (720) 402-8854. Please direct all other questions to our email: denver.east.boys.lacrosse@gmail.com

Weekly Update: Week of January 8, 2018

Friends of East Lacrosse,

Welcome back! Hopefully, you have been able to make the very most of your Winter Break. We have 11 sessions to get better before tryouts begin. Lets make em’ count! Here is a video/article that shows how we want to play this spring. In order to accomplish this, we need to become better athletes and have strong stick skills. This is where our pre-season training fits in.

http://www.insidelacrosse.com/ article/shatz-and-mouradian- the-pursuit-of-fast/50930

For this week we will begin on Monday, at 4:45pm on the turf. The weather looks great for the first week and we will be on the turf and in the weight room.  Please make sure you register and pay online for all workouts and teams (if you are on a roster), if you have not already.

All the best for the first week of Semester 2

Weekly Update: Week of October 23, 2017

Friends of East Lacrosse,

Fall Ball DLC games came to an end this past weekend. We had a strong finish as the Varsity team beat Arapahoe and advanced to the semi-finals before losing against a tough Valor team. JV lost to an athletic and experienced Monarch team. It was a tough loss but the team made great progress over the last 6-weeks. Congratulations to both teams for a great fall-ball season.

Although fall ball games have concluded, fall practices will continue until November 16th. We will have minimal activities this week and be will be back with field practice next week. This is due to parent/teacher conferences and the weather forecast for Thursday. We look forward to having a good turnout on Wednesday.

*Most important update is that we have rescheduled the Fall Player/Parent Meeting for Monday, November 6th. It will be at 7:00pm in the Commons. We strongly encourage everyone to attend as we will discuss everything you need to know for the upcoming 2018 season!
