REFEREE REGISTRATION (MENS)

As in past years ALRA is making it easy for anybody who is interested to become accredited as a referee. They have an online test
(https://www.classmarker.com/online-test/start/?quiz=vdn5a729ec4cdb44).
The pass mark to become a club referee is 60%. The test isn’t that hard, is free and can be retaken as many times as you want until you get the mark you want. It is really important that we has as many players qualified to referee as possible. There are days when we are short and need help making sure we provide referees (especially important for our junior grades), the more people who are qualified the easier it will be to find a referee who able to help out our regulars. It’s also good to know the rules, so jump on-line, do the test and get qualified to be a referee.

CALL FOR EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST TO COACH JUNIOR AND SENIOR TEAMS

From Tuesday 3rd April – All players that have uniforms at home, please bring back to clubrooms so it is accounted for in the 2018 season. We’re inviting those who have old equipment at home to please donate it to the club for new players to use.

We have been lucky over the years to have excellent coaches for our junior teams. However, our senior teams without coaches are at a real disadvantage. This year we’d like each team to have at least one coach, and the junior teams to have more than one (to share the work, and help cover when one coach isn’t available). If you’d like to coach please contact us (secretary@caulfieldlacrosse.com.au or president@caulfieldlacrosse.com.au). It’s a lot of fun, a great way to connect to the kids (if it’s a junior team you are looking after), and you get the best position to watch a game from. LV run coaches courses, we will pay for you to go and get accredited. If you are new to coaching we will make sure you are working with an experienced coach to help guide you and help out.

For our senior teams, especially the Women’s teams and the Men’s “Divi” teams, we’d love to see some past players sharing their experience and knowledge of the game and helping the new generation develop. Coaching is a great way to give back to the club you love – so past players, go on – get involved with the club and give coaching a go (secretary@caulfieldlacrosse.com.au or president@caulfieldlacrosse.com.au).

CALL FOR EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST FOR TEAM MANAGERS

Following on from our call for coaches, unless supported by a manager the team coach has to spend a fair chunk of their time at training and on game day doing tasks that need to be done but aren’t related to coaching. If a team has a manager, the coaches can coach. Being a manager is an important task, but isn’t all that hard – and doesn’t require that much lacrosse knowledge. We’d love to have a manager (or two) for each team. Think you’d like to help your team but scared you don’t know enough about lacrosse – being a manager might be the way for you to contribute. We will help – we have a manual, have a software application (teamstuff) that will make your life easier – so if you are interested in being a manager – please let us know. (secretary@caulfieldlacrosse.com.au orpresident@caulfieldlacrosse.com.au)

STOCKTAKE AND DONATION OF OLD EQUIPMENT

From Tuesday 3rd April – All players that have uniforms at home, please bring back to clubrooms so it is accounted for in the 2018 season. We’re inviting those who have old equipment at home to please donate it to the club for new players to use.
