Rec Co-ed Lacrosse

Flathead Lacrosse Club is extremely excited to offer an introductory level Rec Lacrosse program for Spring 2017!

 

This program is a fun introductory non-competitive program that will allow kids to learn lacrosse. Practices will be held on Mondays and Wednesdays at 4:30-6pm from April 10th until the end of May. Practices will be held at Smith Field. This team will not travel to play games. If any games are scheduled, they will be played in the Flathead Valley. 

This program is open for BOYS AND GIRLS in grades 2-7

No experience is necessary and all players are required to have a gender specific lacrosse stick. Boys need to have a boys lacrosse stick and girls need to have a girls lacrosse stick. No other equipment will be required. Techniques for both boys and girls will be taught to players.

Sticks will be available for purchase.

 

Registration is $50 (plus your $25 US Lacrosse registration.)

FLC is happy to announce that we are not running any fundraisers to pay for this year’s program. With that being said, the club is counting on players and family members to help support the team by purchasing apparel and representing our club at games and abroad. This is our fundraiser. Everyone needs an awesome FLC hat and a nice thermal sure is nice during those brisk April practices. Please forward this email to anyone you know who would be interested in supporting Flathead Lacrosse Club.

 

Payment is due on or before pickup. There is a credit card option but I ask for all players and parents to try and pay by check or cash. Please make checks payable to “Flathead Lacrosse Club.” If you would like your item shipped, please follow the steps on the website. Items will be shipped by USPS as soon as FLC has possession of them.

 

We need all orders in by FRIDAY, MARCH 24th in order to be able to distribute our apparel at or before our first game on April 6th. Additional orders will be fulfilled on an on-demand basis.

 

    If you are curious what this apparel is going to look like and sizing, stop into The White Room in Whitefish to check out their branded tees, hoodies, hats, and thermals. These will be the same articles your FLC gear will be printed on.

Lacrosse in Whitefish

Hello Flathead Lacrosse Parents and Players,

The registration window will be closing on March 31st for many of our programs. We would like to remind people that Flathead Lacrosse Club teams will practice at Smith Fields in Whitefish. The Northwest Lacrosse Club will operate a separate program in Kalispell. 

 

Due to previous registration numbers, a lack of interest in filling vacant board positions, and a desire to centralize youth development Flathead Lacrosse will only be offering a Boys High School level team. All Girls and U15 and under players should go to Northwest Lacrosse Club to register for the 2017 season. Please register immediately. If there are adequate numbers to support Whitefish only teams we will schedule practice space in Whitefish to save travel. Northwest will provide playing opportunities for U15 all the way down to intramural U7 teams. There will be familiar coaching faces, the same great teammates, and the opportunity to play the best game on earth. The hope is to provide a centralized youth program that will feed into four separate HS programs.

Boys Officials Training

​The following information is from the Montana Lacrosse Assocation: 

Please consider becoming an official soon. 

  •  As of January 7, 2016 the Montana Lacrosse Association has only 17 new boys referee prospects. This is well short of the 30+ new refs we need to officiate the 2016 season. Flathead Lacrosse will need to recruit 4-6 new officials for this season.
  • Each program is expected to recruit 1 new official for every 25 players. One program has recruited 10 of the 17 prospects, two other programs have 3, and several programs have recruited ZERO.
  • As stated in the MLA Call To Action, we will cancel games if we do not have adequate officials to safely play. Programs that fail to recruit an acceptable number of new officials will have more games canceled than those that successfully meet the recruiting goal.
  • The online official’s classroom sessions begin Monday February 1, 2016. Only 2 weeks remain to recruit 15-25 new prospects.
  • It is imperative that all programs make a concerted effort to identify a significant number of new officials.  

Below is all the important information regarding the boys officials training.

Season 

The MLA competitive season will begin with games on March 26th and conclude by June 5th. Most games are played on weekends. Missoula area has some Thursday and Friday evening games. A typical weekend of games provides the opportunity to officiate several games the same day.  


Starter Kit

The MLA will provide each new official that successfully completes the training program described below with an official’s starter kit containing: hat, shirt, whistle, score cards, and flags.  


Pay Scale 

The MLA will start using Arbiter Sports for official assigning and payment. A designated Assignor will coordinate all game assignments and payments using this web-based system.
