Volunteers Needed!

We are lucky to enjoy the use and flexibility of multiple fields at Hightower Trail, Tritt and Shallowford falls.  And, it takes a lot of work to maintain our fields to be in shape for games and practices.  If we all chip in, we can all have more time to enjoy the game!  We have created a Sign-Up Genius for the following:

 

  • Gas Can Team
  • HTMS Fertilizer Application Team
  • Ant Mound Team
  • Tritt Field Coordinator
  • Field Cutting Team
  • Field Lining Coordinator
  • Field Lining Team

 

Please click here to sign up to do your part!

Supporting the Wykes Family

We are reaching out to the Pope Junior Greyhound Lacrosse community to make you aware of the news surrounding Shamus Wykes.  Coach Wykes is a teacher at Pope High School and the Head Coach of the Pope Ladies Lax Program and founder of the HotShot Lacrosse summer team.  Shamus has 3 teenage daughters, and his wife is also a career educator.  Recently, Shamus suffered a pulmonary embolism that made its way to his heart causing cardiac arrest.  Thankfully, he is recovering in the hospital and should be home any day now. 

 

We are calling on the Pope Junior Greyhound Lacrosse community to help the Wykes family as they face the financial burden of heath care and lost income from this tribulation.  Please know this is not an obligation, however, if you are in a position to assist them and would like to, please click the links below to sign up to bring the Wykes a meal or to relieve some of their financial pressure with a donation.

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.
