Hello, and welcome to the 2022 spring season of Needham Girls Youth Lacrosse. Your daughter will be on the team Needham ¾ white. My name is Mamie Marcus and I will be the head coach of the team. Adam Yellin and Katie Crowley will also be coaching with me. We’re all very excited for a great season of lacrosse.
Apologies for the long email, but we have a lot of information to communicate to you:
You will be able to see our roster and our game schedule by logging into your account on the NGYL website, under the “Team Bulletins & Schedules” select “CHOOSE A TEAM” then “NEEDHAM 34/ White.”
Our game times are now posted on the site will be on Sundays and, weather permitting. Games will be played on April 3, 10, 24, May 1, 8, 15, and June 5, 12, with a league-wide jamboree on May 22, 2022 at Devens Parade Ground (details on the jamboree will be sent out closer to the date).
We will hold practice 2 nights per week. We haven’t yet received our final field permits from the town – we will update you with practice days/times/locations as soon as we can. They most likely will be Monday & Thursday nights.
All of our Needham Girls Youth Lacrosse teams are now accessible on the SportsSignup Play mobile app. Once you download the app please log in with the same information you use on Needhamlacrosse.com to link to our team. You can use the app to see our schedule and RSVP.
Please note required equipment for all players:
- Women’s lacrosse stick
- Mouthguard (note the mouthguard must not be white or clear)
- Lacrosse goggles (please note that only goggles that are SEI certified to the current ASTM standard F3077 are legal for play, and the SEI logo must be printed on the goggles themselves – a listing of current SEI-certified models is available here (you’ll need to expand the US Lacrosse menu, then “Eye and Face Protect (Sports) menu, and click through to the F3077 listing))
You can find additional information about lacrosse gear at the NGYL website (scroll down from the photos on the main page).
Your daughter’s uniform (shorts and reversible jersey) will be sent directly to your home (our vendor tells us that uniforms should be delivered no later than March 26).
We’re looking forward to a fun season. I will also be sending additional information on scheduling as the season approaches. In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
Mamie, Adam & Katie
