8U Info this week!
by posted 05/17/2021

Hello Tribe 8U Boys Parents!

 
We are having so much fun watching the boys improve week to week.  They are spreading out more, throwing and catching the ball, and are starting to feel what it's like to score and accomplish a goal!  
 
This week, we are looking forward to practice this afternoon (Monday) at 4:30, and then practice on Wednesday at 4:30 followed by a game (against each other, Red v White) around 5:30.  This Saturday, we have games at Cold Springs (Red at 2:45, arriving at 2:15; White at 3:30, arriving at 3:00).  
 
The weather on Wednesday is supposed to be chilly but sunny, and we predict practice & games will go!  This Saturday, the forecast is for unsettled weather.  We want to let you know that HSLL will call games off if they feel it is unsafe to play, and it could be last minute.  We do not have control over that (many games this past Saturday were called off last minute due to lightning when families were already in Reno).  Game changes, field changes, time changes only happen due to weather or, in the case of last week, other teams using the fields unexpectedly.  Please know as coaches we are doing our best to let you know ahead of time about changes.  Changes affect us and our work schedule just as they do yours, and we understand it can be frustrating.  But we thank you for all of your flexibility and understanding as we, as volunteers, are doing our best!
 
There are some lacrosse camps this summer that we wanted to tell you about in case you are interested.  
 
 
Also, if your boys are interested in learning at home and improving stick skills, here is an example of some instructional videos that they can watch.  My (Johnnie's) sons are obsessed with these skills videos!
 
Again, the kids are doing such a great job and we are loving watching and coaching them.  See you this afternoon!

8U Boys Schedule -- Remainder of Spring 2021
by posted 05/08/2021

 8U Tribe Boys Parents & Families,

 

We are so proud of our players - they all did a GREAT job today.  They ran hard, tried new things, passed the ball, had some terrific shots on goal, and were overall great team players.  They are learning a lot and we are confident that both teams will be peaking late in the season ;]

 

We have communicated with the North Tahoe coaches about make-up games and are ready to share our schedule for the rest of our Spring season.  The calendars below (there are two--Red and White) show practices and games, including all past Sunday make-up games, for the season.  We have one more weekend to travel to Cold Springs, but all other games will be played at Riverview or Squaw [wahoo!].  FYI - the Squaw field is at the base of the Squaw Valley access road, on the southwest side of the intersection.  It is up some stairs from the parking lot and playground. 

 

The only unknown is the HSLL tournament.  There are three days that are bookmarked for that tournament on the HSLL website, but we do not know yet what that means for each age group, OR where it will be played.  Our practice schedule (or if there will be one at all) for June 7th and 9th is yet unknown; we will fill you in as we get closer.  There are no games on Memorial Day Weekend.  There is no practice on Memorial Day.

 

We hope you have a relaxing and wonderful Mother's Day.  See you Monday at practice!!

 

Coaches Jake and Johnnie

More 8U Awesomeness
by posted 05/06/2021

Hello, 8U Tribe parents!
 
Coaches Jake and Johnnie here with the latest!
 
ONE:  Let's get ready for a FUN and sweaty game day this Saturday!
 
Here's the schedule:
Boys 8U RED team:  
2:45pm, cold springs field 1b
 
Boys 8U WHITE team:  
2:45pm, cold springs field 1c
3:30pm, cold springs field 1c
(yep, two games!)
 
We are traveling out to the same fields as last time.  We know it's far, and we thank you for supporting the boys in this venture!
 
It's supposed to be sunny, around 70 degrees, so please bring water for your sons.  
 
Even though there is a game scheduled for this Sunday, it is NOT happening.  More on the schedule later.
 
TWO:  COVID:  All Tribe coaches have heard from the powers at the top that we need to remain vigilant to keep our season going.  Regardless of individual philosophies, the Tribe has expectations that we need to adhere to.  Here are the asks:
  • please have kids show up in masks and leave in them.  When helmets are off, masks are on.
  • please prepare your son to have us ask questions at the beginning of each practice regarding covid symptoms, etc
  • please keep your child home if he has interacted with someone quarantining or who has tested positive for covid, OR, of course, if he is sick.
  • The HSLL health screening needs to be completed by coaches and athletes on game day prior to showing up.
THREE:
When kids sign up for baseball, soccer or basketball, etc, they have usually seen it on TV or at local or professional sports arenas.  They usually know the game they are playing, in some capacity.  Lacrosse is not as widely understood, and you really have to search for it to find televised games.  It would be so awesome if your kids could watch a college-level game here or there so they know what we are talking about in practice, and know what the end goals are 🙂
Here are some great examples of games so far this season that you can watch with your sons!
 
 

FOUR: We have come up with a schedule of potential makeup games (that were scheduled the past few Sundays), but are waiting on North Tahoe to confirm.  When all teams (Tribe Red, Tribe White, North Tahoe) have confirmed, we will send out our schedule of full games for the rest of the season.  Thank you for your patience!

 

FIVE: As most of you know Truckee Tribe is made up of volunteers and, as you can likely see from the chaos that is practice, we can always use help!  Come help out at practice if you're ever interested!

 
See you Saturday!
