'Sharpening the Saw' With Two Great Lacrosse Camps

During this summer off-season, it is important our kids continue to practice the basics of lacrosse.

 

There are two excellent camps we’d like to share with you (see links below).

 

1.       Richie Meade Lacrosse Camp – Held July 22-25th  – Legendary coach Richie Meade has been running this camp for over 20 years. This year it will be held 2 hours away at Furman University (SC). Junior Greyhounds very own Ryan Meade, nephew of Richie, will be an instructor at this camp.

2.       The Atlanta Blaze Lacrosse Camps – Two sessions (June 6-9July 25-28) – Players along with coaches from the Atlanta Blaze lacrosse team will instruct and lead these sessions.

 

Both camps offer fundamental and intermediate skill building along with competitive scrimmages for immediate application.

 

For more information about the Richie Meade lacrosse camp, contact Ryan Meade @   OR register online at www.coachmeade.com

 

For more information about the Atlanta Blaze academy, contact Henry Schoonmaker @   OR register online at www.atlantablaze.com

Wyatt Pope - A Friend in Need

The 2016 Junior Greyhound Select Team supporting Wyatt Pope
Parents,
 
In early February, Wyatt Pope, a seven year old Roswell resident, was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. The doctors detected a malignant tumor growing inside his stomach.Wyatt has recently started chemo therapy. 
 
Chuck and Carrie Pope, Wyatt's parents, have a done terrific job of sharing through social media, Wyatt's unfortunate condition. In searching through their facebook site, there was at least 3 Pope teams honoring Wyatt last weekend, forming the signature "W" sign with their hands or body. Our teams are part of countless number of people across the country, recognizing and cheering on Wyatt through this difficult time.
 
Please take a moment and check out Wyatt's story, using the below link. There are a couple of ways that you can help out. Please consider a small donation or purchasing a T-shirt to provide both encouragement and support to the Pope family.
 
We thank the Lavelle Family (Tim, Traci, Jace, & Sieger) for introducing the Popes to our Junior Greyhound community. 
 
Parents, thank you for your consideration.

Honor The Game

Honoring the Game goes to the "ROOTS" of positive play
 
   R is for Rules
   Rules allow us to keep the game fair.  If we will by ignoring or         
   violating the rules, what is the value of our victory.
 
   O is for Opponents
   Without an opponent there would be no competition.  Rather    
   than demeaning a strong opponent, we need to honor strong  
   opponents because they challenge us to do our best.
 
   O is for Officials
   Respecting officials, even when we disagree with their calls, may 
   be the toughest part of Honoring the Game.   We must 
   remember that officials are not perfect (just like coaches, 
   athletes, and parents!)
 
   T is for Teammates
   It’s easy for young athletes to think solely about their own 
   performance, but we want athletes to realize that being a part of
   a team requires thinking about and respecting one’s teammates.
   This respect needs to carry beyond the field.
 
   S is for Self
   Athletes should be encouraged to live up to their own highest 
   personal standard of Honoring the Game, even when their
   opponents are not. Athletes’ respect for themselves and their 
   own standards must come first.
