NOTE - Throughout, text in BLUE denotes general Club info applicable to all members, while text in GREEN reflects Boys only content while RED text reflects Girls only content.

Girls Week #1 – At last our Club is ready to commence the first week of practices for our new Girls Youth Summer Lacrosse Program. It all starts this Wednesday evening. Please consult your Girls Team page(s) for complete information, including practice dates and times and roster assignments. Girls Teams can expect kickoff messaging later in the week. Girls will practice on the front field of Halderman, nearest to Springfield Road. Arrive early as traffic will be heavy around Halderman this week.

Boys Week #3 – This week is our third week together after an amazing performance at The Meltdown this past weekend in Downingtown. 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!

The week ahead is a “regular” practice week with scrimmages planned for certain teams. All tournament teams are preparing for this coming weekend’s Philly Showdown. Please review your Team page online for your team-specific schedule and news.

^^NEW^^ - Philly Showdown Schedule. It’s looking like the Showdown tournament schedule will be posted online later this week. See your Team page for news item with anticipated site locations and playing windows by team. The Team pages will be updated shortly after the official schedule is released.

^^NEW^^ - Philly Showdown Player Registration. All Boys tournament teams are attending The Philly Showdown, Saturday & Sunday, June 25th and 26th. Please proceed to register all non-developmental players with the Mesa Fever Lacrosse Tournament website ASAP (link below). Each Team page has a news article with more complete details.

Showdown Player Registration & Waiver

**Reminder** - Boys Club Vacation. There will be no boy’s Club events beginning on Monday, June 27, 2016 and extending through Tuesday, July 5th. Please rest up and relax away from lacrosse. You deserve a break!

US Lacrosse Wall Ball Announcement

##Important## - Weather Policy. The threat of strong thunderstorms persist. When storms are possible, unless you have an onsite parent backup, we do not recommend that you leave your child during practice at Halderman Field. Unfortunately, we have no shelter to offer should the weather change suddenly. Please check the forecast often and talk with your child about your plans should you need to leave the area.

##Important## - Member Conduct. Any club’s reputation is a direct reflection of the judgment and character of its members. Fortunately, we have a great group of members. All SCLC members, including Coaches, Players and Parents are reminded that we all must always act with honesty and integrity and comply with US Lacrosse Code of Conduct (and rules of tournaments we participate in). Anyone with conduct-related problems, questions or concerns are invited to contact our Club Directors (contact info posted online) or submit a confidential inquiry online in our Feedback To Our Board page.
