Boys Registration is closed for the 2014 Spring Season
Girls Registration is open for the 2014 Spring Season
The Lacrosse Season is almost upon us. The teams have been set and the Board and Coaches are working hard to bring a fun filled season to everyone this year. As soon as the snow melts practices will start. As you can see that might take some time due the the amount of snow and the frigid cold. The Coaches want each individual player to start preparing for the season. You should be practicing your stick skills everyday. The best way to develop good stick skills is WALL BALL. At home you can practice your cradling. If you can cradle left and right handed it will undoubtedly help your Lacrosse game.
A great way to prepare for the Season is to gain Lacrosse IQ. One way to increase your lacrosse knowledge is to watch College Lacrosse. On the vertical menu on this website you will see NCAA Lax on TV. It is a schedule of all the games that are televised. Have your son or daughter watch some games and in particular their position and watch the best players in the world playing this great game. You should be observant to all the players with and without the ball as movement without the ball is a key component to a successful offense. On defense watch how they move their feet and have the stick out in front of them keeping the ball handler off balance.
Your Coaches will be emailing you soon and any questions should be directed to your Coach.
My name is Gregg Ninos and I am the Secretary for the Wappingers Warriors Youth Lacrosse club. We want to congratulate you on being named a member of Team USA at the 2014 FIL World Lacrosse Championship.
The Wappingers Warriors have been fortunate to see you play for the Black Knights at several games and were always impressed by your physical style of play mixed with your lacrosse IQ and your ability to score goals. Even more impressive to our players and parents was how approachable you have always been, whether in signing autographs after a game or in giving instruction at a Black Knights lacrosse clinic. Many of our kids' fondest lacrosse memories include playing at halftime at Michie Stadium, followed by getting balls and jerseys signed by #9 of the Black Knights!
Your hard work, dedication, and leadership are an inspiration to all of our athletes. We wish you nothing but success at the coming games and look forward to many years of cheering for you, the Black Knights, and Team USA.
I remember as a young lacrosse player going to college lacrosse games, and the greatest part was getting the chance to have a player sign a ball, a shirt, or just give me a high five. I also remember how devastated I felt when players would blow me off, or I couldn’t get a signature from my favorite player. So that is why I sign autographs and take pictures until I am yelled at to leave the field. I am consistently the last one in to the locker room after a game because I was once that kid asking for autographs.
I am proud to hear that I have made a positive impact on your kids. As young lacrosse players they will try to emulate those at the highest levels of their sport, and I can only hope that I will continue to have a positive impact on the way they play and the way they live their lives.
Please continue molding your players into the great men they all can be.
