Although we still are currently involved in MIAA Tournament play and the remainder of the high school football season, I wanted to reach out as the Winter Sports Season is right around the corner. On Wednesday, November 15th beginning at 5:30pm, we will be holding our winter pre-season meetings which will include both our high school and middle school programs. We will begin the evening in the high school auditorium prior to breaking off into sport specific groups. All players and parents should attend.
This year we are fortunate to have Peter Bidstrup as a keynote speaker. Peter was a distinguished and very successful lacrosse coach at Governor’s Academy for over 20 years and is a frequent speaker about topics involving leadership and the role and value of athletics in education. Several of his published articles have appeared on a national level, including “Parents Role in Success” (https://www.uslacrosse.org/blog/parents-role-in-success) and “Lasagna: When the Recruiting Trail Intersects with Real Life” (http://www.insidelacrosse.com/article/lasagna-when-the-recruiting-trail-intersects-with-real-life/36144). He is also the founder of BLG Advising, a company specializing in college admission advising, athletic recruiting advising, and leadership development for students. Peter will speak for approximately 20-30 minutes. We will then break off into sport specific groups where each coach will speak about tryouts, season schedule, practices, team expectations, etc. This is also an opportunity for players and parents to ask specific questions before the start of the season.
*This year the HIGH SCHOOL 2017/2018 Winter Sports Season will begin on TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 28TH and the MIDDLE SCHOOL Winter Season will begin on MONDAY, DECEMBER 4th.
