SELECT AND TRAVEL TRYOUTS - CALLOUT MEETING December 15 and 19
Parents of players interested in trying out for U12/U14 Travel and Select lacrosse should attend one of our two tryouts.
The parent call out meetings will be December 15th and December 19th from 7:00 to 8:00 at Billeriky's community room - you need only attend one. Topics will include travel and select boys lacrosse. We will discuss team structure, tournaments and lacrosse in general. Parents are encouraged to attend the callout if their sons are interested in trying out for travel or select lacrosse. Select teams play rec lacrosse as well as limited travel tournaments. A call out for just rec lacrosse will be held in February.
You can reach boys lacrosse at firstname.lastname@example.org or Daniel Coppersmith 501-1871.
You can buy new CATS swag at a discount at the Loyalist.
NOTE: Youth sizes are in limited supply from the vendor -- there will be a much bigger sale in the spring. Only t-shirts have youth sizes for now. They do offer extra small in other items that might accommodate kids.
The promo code is HSE15 The deadline for standard shipping is December 11th.
Due to an outside event at Incrediplex, we are moving stick skills for Sunday December 4 to 12:00-1:30. This is for this Sunday only.

The Indiana Youth Lacrosse Association (IYLA), the governing body of youth lacrosse in Indiana, has announced that Indiana lacrosse clubs will be moving from grade based to even U-based age brackets.
Beginning in with the 2017 season, there will now be U10, U12 and U14 age groups. The break outs are:
U10 born after 8/31/2006
U12 born after 8/31/2004
U14 born after 8/31/2002 or in 8th grade (15 year olds in 8th grade are grandfathered in)
This is in line with the direction that US Lacrosse is moving to nationwide.
Last year our club went to U-based levels for our travel and select. We did in preparation for the inevitable move to U based (most of the surrounding states were already U based). We did some analysis on our 2016 rosters and determined the move to even based will result in minimal change and it aligns very well with the grades.
We will provide more information on this in the coming months.
Welcome to our new mascot and logo!
We have finalized the fall and winter stick skills schedule:
Sunday, Dec 4 -
Note the time change!

We will need payment for stick skills on the first stick skills date. The fee is $75 made payable to HSE BOYS LACROSSE.
Fall/Winter Lacrosse Skills and Scrimmages
In the past, HSE-Fishers has entered teams into the Indy Indoor indoor lacrosse league. You may have seen emails or heard of the changes with the indoor seasons. The Indy Indoor league was run by two people (not associated with HSE-Fishers) and they rented space from Off The Wall Sports in Carmel. The two individuals have apparently severed ties with Off The Wall and decided to start another league in Westfield at the Grand Park complex.
While indoor lacrosse is fun and a great way to get your boys playing lacrosse during the winter, we have grown very concerned over the large number of season ending injuries our players have suffered at the 5/6 and 7/8 levels in recent years.
This year, the club will not be formally entering 5/6 and 7/8 teams in either league. This does not prohibit your son from playing in either of those leagues, it just means HSE-Fishers will not organize teams or secure coaches.
Some parents have decided to organize teams for indoor. This is fine of course, but understand these teams, despite being organized under the HSE-Fishers name, are not sponsored by the club and therefore operate outside the umbrella of any insurance offered by the club and possibly US Lacrosse.
We may enter teams for 3/4 since the aggressiveness of play is not harsh and injuries have not been as severe.
In lieu of indoor lacrosse teams, our club will be hosting fall and winter skills and scrimmage sessions. These will be open to any player 5th grade and above (for the 2016-2017 school year) who has registered with SPORTS for the spring 2016 season (last spring), if you did not register with SPORTS but wish to participate in the stick skills sessions, please email HSEFishersLacrosse@gmail.com and we will help you with that step.
Fall and Winter lacrosse is also open to parents who want to become coaches and existing coaches who want to gain more experience. These coaches will shadow more experience coaches during the skills instruction as well as the game play so they can enhance their own coaching skill set.

New Player and Family Sessions
We will also have two sessions this fall for families new to lacrosse. These sessions will be an informational hour each where the game of lacrosse will be explained to kids and parents alike. Kids will be provided loaner sticks to use and will get basic exposure to passing, catching and shooting (using tennis balls for safety) - no investment in equipment is required.
These introductory sessions will be free of charge.
