Parents can play many roles in sport: current or former athlete, coach, fan, motivator, role model or critic. A few studies have shown that family members may influence an athlete’s involvement and achievement in sport more than coaches. Parents also are the first and most critical agents at socializing sports.
We use technology heavily in our program. SportsEngine, which is our website platform, has a mobile app that is crucial for our parents to be familiar with. In addition, nearly all of the tournaments we go to will utilize TourneyMachine to post game schedules, scores, standings, and playoff seedings. Both apps should be downloaded prior to the start of the spring season.
To help our parents understand the game of lacrosse, how to engage with their young players, and to help with the technology we use, we've developed this parent portal. Please explore this page to understand more about Lacrosse, SportsEngine Mobile App, and TourneyMachine.
Equipment Safety Alert
Please note that there is a new safety standard taking effect in 2021 for goalie chest protectors and in 2022 for player shoulder pads - the new NOCSAE performance standard ND200 to help address commotio cordis.
As you consider buying new gear for your player, please consider skipping to this new standard ahead of 2021 (goalies) and all other players (2022).
Here is a link discussing the standard: https://www.uslacrosse.org/blog/us-lacrosse-approves-rule-change-to-enhance-heart-protection-for-athletes
We have a discount program through Lax.com (email us for code here) if you are interested in these new pads (please note the Youth sizes tend to run a bit small).
