WILTON WOLFPACK CLUB FOR WILTON RESIDENTS IN GRADES 9-12
Welcome to the Wilton Wolfpack! This is a new club team sponsored by the WLA, which will consist of Wilton HS freshman to senior boys from the school year that just ended (i.e. 2019-2020). This is NOT a Wilton HS team and is not governed or controlled by the HS administration.
Our primary goal is to give our HS boys lacrosse players an opportunity to practice and possibly to play in a couple of tourneys together. We will try to accommodate all Wilton HS freshman to senior boys for practice. Each tourney team will consist of the seniors that want to play plus selected underclassmen to create the most competitive team possible. For our underclassmen (i.e. freshman to juniors), our practice teams will depend on the number of our registered players and each tourney team will depend on ability and availability. I know many of our underclassmen will have conflicts with our tourneys with their club schedules.
Our season will run from Monday, June 29th thru mid-August or whenever we decide to end it. We will try to conduct at least 2 practices per week. We have signed up a single team to participate in a 1-day tourney on July 31st at the CT Sportsplex in North Branford. As it stands our schedule that day is as follows:
July 31st Game #1 11am Fairfield Prep
Game #2 11:50am Cheshire
Game #3 12:40pm Glastonbury
So, as you can see, that tourney will be very competitive.
Currently, our second tourney will actually be a short ‘season’ from Aug 4th to Aug 16th with individual games against other CT teams. The schedule and details have not been worked out by the organizer.
Every participant will need to register on the WLA site. NO EXCEPTIONS. The registration link will be available later this weekend. The cost to register for practice is $35, which will include a new reversible pinnie for practice and which will also be used for those playing in the tourneys. In order to register everyone must have a current US Lacrosse membership valid thru August 17, 2020. If you are not a current member the cost is $35. Here is a link to the US Lacrosse site to find out if you are a member and to register if you are not. https://www.uslacrosse.org/membership I’m sorry but this is required. Again, no exceptions.
We will circulate additional tourney details and registration links for those invited to play in a tourney. Each tourney will require an additional fee since each tourney has an entrance fee, plus possible other costs and expenses.
The Town approved our use of the Stadium turf. Attached is the last version of our proposed protocol that was approved by the Town. Please review this attachment. Everyone will be expected to adhere to our protocol and any changes to our protocol along the way.
Our practice schedule for this week will be Monday June 29th and Tuesday June 30th at the Stadium from 7pm to 8:45pm. We may add a Friday night session, depending on available coaches and players, knowing it is the start of a holiday weekend. I will circulate more details on this week’s practices to our registered players Sunday night or Monday.
Like with anything else lately, we will probably have to make some adjustments along the way so everything is subject to change.
*IMPORTANT: This is purely a voluntary program and your participation is totally up to you and your parents.
