Any last minute instructions or changes will be sent via e-mail or posted on the web page. Note game times and dates will not change; they are set in stone for each grade level. Review the enclosed material and notify me immediately if I made any mistakes. I need every coach to deliver me an updated roster with players and coaches names at the tournament (I have attached a word and exel spread sheet format). These have to be mailed to the insurance company after the tournament. It is your responsibility to make sure your teams carry the appropriate insurance. No waivers are required.
PARKING- WE HAVE 90 TEAMS PARTICIPATING. WE NEED VISITING TEAMS TO CAR POOL. Please help us any way you can. Note: parking is available south of Stewart Ave. on the side streets just across from the fields.
Arrive at least a half-hour early before your first game. Register in front of the St. Paul’s field house. I will dispense your team’s t-shirts and supply any last minute instructions. I will provide you with the field maps at this time. Food and beverages will be sold under the portico at the St. Paul’s Field house and on the field by the playground. PLEASE SUPPORT THE FOOD COURT. ALL PROCEEDS GO TO CHARITY. Bathrooms are available by the St. Paul’s playground and in the Field house and at the high school (note- bathrooms are not available at the Middle School). All participating players and coaches will receive a tee shirt. Please refer to the schedule for your game times and location (schedule will be posted the second week of June on the web site). A 50-50 raffle for cash, bicycles, gifts and lacrosse equipment will be held each day. Tickets will be sold at the food court and on the field. The winner will be posted under the portico one hour prior to the end of the tournament. NOTE - YOU MUST BE PRESENT TO WIN THE PRIZES. Please ask your parents to support the raffles to offset the cost of the tournament. Parking is available at St. Paul’s, The Middle School, and the side streets across from St. Paul’s (map on website.) There is also parking at the High School. Make every attempt to car pool.
