Which JR Team Will Win a Pizza Party?

Lace Up with Lax to End Homelessness One Step at a Time

 

On March 18th, Pope Men’s Lacrosse will host Lace Up with Lax! Please bring a NEW pair of predominately BLACK children's shoes to the game or drop off locations (TBD). These shoes will be given to the children at My Sister’s House, a shelter for homeless children and their moms. The shelter requests that the shoes be primarily black in color and sizes needed are infant to Adult Size 12. Last year thanks to our fans, players and especially our Jr. Greyhound program, over 300 pairs of shoes were donated. Thanks in advance for your generosity! 

 

As we have in past years, we would like to have contest between all JR teams.  The team donating the largest number of shoes on the evening of March 18 (they can certainly collect them before and donate them early, if needed) will win a pizza party catered to their field with some Varsity lacrosse players in attendance.

 

See link below for additional details.

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.
