Welcome to WRL's home on the web!

Dear Walton Lacrosse Families,

Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year with a special welcome to our new freshman families and players!   We are excited for a new season of lacrosse and the direction our lacrosse program is headed in.   This "welcome email" has some important information we want to get out now and more information and details will follow.

First and foremost, please mark your calendars for August 30 at 7:30PM in the old Walton Auditorium for our Parents Meeting.  At this meeting we will share more details around our fall season plans and set expectations for what is needed in preparation for the 2018 regular season from both the players and our volunteers.

Our first fundraising event will be held Friday, September 8th from 5:30-8:30pm at Raider Valley.  We will be hosting a clinic for our Junior Program.  We need our Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors leading the evening with both small group and one-on-one instruction for our young players to help sharpen our junior players lacrosse skills, and to build a synergy and greater sense of community between the programs.  All players participating will earn service hours which Coach Spotz will sign off on.  A link to sign up for this event and more details will follow.

As the fall approaches we want to give a sneak peek at some exciting information in what we think will be a very extensive and strategic approach to the off season.  This fall we will do a combination of things to best prepare and develop our players:

Skill Sessions Tuesday's and Thursday's 5:30-7:00pm at Dickerson we will have skill sessions run by Scott Ratliff and Liam Banks from Thunder Lacrosse with an emphasis on stick skills, lacrosse IQ and individual player development.  Sessions will start Sept 5 and run through Nov 9 and full attendance (unless in a fall sport) is expected.  The cost is $155 per player. 

Strength Training:  Cliff Burrows will lead strength training 4PM-5:30PM on Monday and Wednesday at Walton Field House starting Sept 6 (spots for this will be limited and priority will be given to returning Varsity players and upperclassman).  Cost for this program will be $105. 

Sunday Games:  We will have two Varsity and one JV team play in the Lassiter Fall League on Sunday's at a cost of $75 per player.   Games start Sept 10 and run through Nov 12th.  Teams will be split up by the coaching staff for fall game purposes only, this has no bearing on potential spring plans which will be based on our tryouts later in the year.  This will give the boys a chance to compete against some very good competition and put into practice the fundamentals taught in the Skill Sessions during the week (more details to follow).  We believe we will have enough spots for all that would like to participate.  If you choose to participate please complete both the registration and the waiver link below.

Speed, agility and conditioning: Coach Spotz will lead the conditioning training.  The training is free, we have unlimited spots and will start in November and continue through January tryouts (there will be a break from finals weeks thru winter break).  More details to follow at parent meeting.

We hope this glimpse into the fall gets you as excited as we are to provide these great opportunities for our players.  Spirit wear will be made available soon on the website, we will send out the link as soon as "the store" is open.  We can’t wait to share in more detail our plans at the parent/player meeting.  To stay up to date with everything Walton Lacrosse follow us at Twitter @WHSBoysLAX.

Go Raiders!
