Club Director Lemieux's Season Ending Message

As our 3rd Summer Program under SCLC comes to an end, I am certain that our Club is heading in the right direction. Not only by measuring wins and losses but by how it’s strengthening the community and culture. Simply put, there is no other Club like ours around!

 

The Springfield Lacrosse “culture” that we strive to instill at all levels is characterized by our dedication to Family, Tradition and Community. I feel that this Club took huge strides in 2016 in building on that culture.

 

It is hard to imagine feeling a greater sense of accomplishment than we did on June 11th, after winning our first State Championship since 1992! However, when summer started, and we began to see how much character and promise our great young players were continuing to bring to the program, our coaches and alumni quickly realized the potential of Springfield Lacrosse is unlimited.  

 

There are good reasons why very few programs in the country do what has become routine in Springfield. It requires a ton of hard work at all levels and most parents do not buy into the culture philosophy. Ours is a very special program because of the coordination and passion we have at all levels and I want to thank the parents especially for embracing the big picture. We have the best parents in Springfield and none of this would be possible without you. Thank you!

 

To the Directors of Springfield Cougars Lacrosse Club, the countless hours you all put into this is unbelievable! Thank you all! Special thanks go out to Mike & Deb DePetris. I can't even begin to tell you all how much time those two dedicate to our Club. Also, special thanks to Sarah Damato and Jessi Gougler for bringing our Girls Summer Program to life in 2016. The girls program is an important component of our Lacrosse Family and Sarah and Jessi provided extraordinary leadership this year.   

 

To all the Coaches, thank you for embracing the special opportunity you have to be a positive role model to our younger Cougars. Connecting our exceptional alumni to the next generation remains a primary goal for us, and it has been so rewarding to see that bond getting tighter all summer long!

 

Finally, to our Players. You are the reason we do this. We want you to have the best possible experience, one filled with opportunities, during your time in Springfield and beyond. The improvements I saw on each team from the first practice were remarkable.

 

I'm extremely proud to be Head Coach of Springfield Boys Lacrosse and Club Director for SCLC and would not trade my spot for any other in the country!!

 

The future for Springfield Lacrosse remains bright - Let's continue to demonstrate our respect for community and pride by supporting each other throughout the year ahead and by making sure we are all doing the right thing on and off the field!

 

Enjoy the rest of the summer!!

Boys teams had their best tournament showing in our 3-year history with a combined weekend record of 13 wins, 5 losses and 2 ties. Truly a special accomplishment for a township-based Club team playing against ALL region-based travel Club teams. G4 2024 Team capturing the 2024 B Division Championship on Sunday AM to go undefeated (our first ever title as a Club). G3/2 2025/2026 Team almost duplicated the feat on Sunday PM, finishing in second place only after an overtime playoff battle. Players and Coaches should ALL be extremely proud!

Thank You!

Hello all!

I wanted to take a moment to thank the entire Springfield community for playing such a big part in this historical season. As a small community, we showed our pride in the support for the boys! 

As we told our players, this championship wasn't only about the 35 of us who were on the field together; each and every member of the Springfield Lacrosse community, from the youth families, to the alumni, to the Springfield residents, to the Springfield School District faculty members - We all had a part in this championship!

There is NO other program or community as tight as ours, and we are truly blessed to coach here and be able to work with your families!!!  As a community, let's enjoy the LAST TRUE STATE CHAMPIONSHIP (small schools and big schools will split into 2 classes next year)!! 
 
It is quite an accomplishment and it will never be taken away from us!!
