Good afternoon LZHS Alumni and current LZHS Varsity Players,
My name is Kyle Burke and I am currently the Head Coach of Lake Zurich High School's Boy's Lacrosse Program. We are in the process of putting together an Alumni Game for Thursday, August 7th at 5 PM at May Whitney Elementary School. The format will be based on your graduating year. So, we are going to be playing Odds vs Evens (Graduation Year). I am really excited about this and hope all of you can make it as there are many of you that I am anxious to meet. Please respond and let us know if you can make it by visiting the link below and filling out the form. We look forward to seeing all of you out there!
As discussed in the team meeting during the Town Hall, LZHS Lacrosse will begin an off-season weight training and conditioning program. The program will start in November and run through the end of February. The off-season is a time that lacrosse athletes should be preparing their bodies for the rigors of the upcoming season. By providing athletes with sports appropriate strength and conditioning programs in the off-season, players and the program overall will become more competitive and effective, while reducing the risk for injury.
- Sessions begin this Tuesday, Nov. 5th and meet every Tuesday, Thursday & Friday (except for Thanksgiving week, Winter Break & Finals Week) 6:00 AM - 7:30 AM? in the LZHS Weight Room.
- Minimum of 2 days per week or 26 sessions over 13 weeks is suggested.
- Players participating in Fall or Winter sports should communicate that information to Coach Burke or Coach Sutton.
- Due to space limitations and time constraints Freshman are encouraged to participate in the program either as part of the morning sessions or on their own (Program can be found at http://leagueathletics.com/Page.asp?n=84027&org=lzlacrosse.com). If participating on their own, Freshman players should attend one session in November for baseline testing, and one in January and February for progress testing.
We are registering for the Youth Girls Spring 2014 Season and are very excited to see a lot of returning girls to the sport of lacrosse. This shows that your family has a passion for the sport.
I would like to ask that you help with recruiting new girls to the sport. We have openings for 3rd grade through 8th grade levels. Have their friends, neighbors, classmates, etc., try out lacrosse. Your word of mouth and support is the best recruiting that we can get. We start with the basics at all levels and teach this fast paced sport.
