Hello 5 Blue

Westport PAL Girls Lacrosse

   Dear 5 Blue,

Hi!  Jackie Greenwald (Graces mom) and I (Jen Harvey-Ryans mom) will be your Team Parents this Spring, and we are excited for the season!!

Please bare with the long emails as we are trying to make sure everyone has all the information they need for their daughters.

Each week, we will send you an email, with program announcements, schedule reminders and any changes for the upcoming week. Please read these emails so you’re up to date on all team-related matters.

Also, you should be receiving system email reminders for practices & games. Please RSVP to everything! It is vital that our coaches have advance knowledge of who’s attending or not, to plan accordingly!!  There are directions below on how to upload the calendar feed into your calendar.  Please make sure you do this.  It will give the most accurate schedule of our games and hopefully help you prepare for the season ahead.

This weekend, we kick off our official game season!

                                                                                  Upcoming Games:

                                            ● Saturday    April 1     1:30-2:30pm vs Norwalk 5/6B           Nathan Hale MS turf, Norwalk

                                            ● Sunday        April 2     1:00-2:00pm vs Greenwich 5 white       Staples Ginny Parker turf, Westport

● Arrival time: 30 minutes prior to games dressed and ready to play. Players arriving late will not start.
During our home games we will need help with scoring and timing. We will be sending a separate email with a Sign Up Genius.  Grab a friend or spouse and please find a date to help out our team.  It is fun to be on the sideline with the teams and it really is not that difficult and we need the help!

Upcoming Practices (Mandatory):

  • ●  This week, we are scheduled to have practice:

    Monday     4/3  6-7:30pm @ Ginny Parker

    Thursday   4/6  6-7:30pm @ Wakeman B

    ●  Arrival time: 10 minutes before practice start. Dressed and ready to play.
  • We would like to start a team text with the parents to be able to reach you quickly.  If you would not like to be a part of this text chain please let us know.
  • If you have not picked up your uniform yet, it is with your head coach if pre ordered. Any questions, contact Mary Morris at 203-339-1680.

    Further into the season we will have some special events, so please note those dates listed below.

    We also encourage you and your players to watch college and HS lacrosse whenever you can, as players learn a lot this way too. It’s always great when our girls can support our Staples HS players and our assistant coaches (many are Fairfield U players!) when they take the field! Links to game schedules can be found below.

    Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions!
