It will be a fun opportunity to see the kids play and fingers crossed, we have a nice day to picnic and enjoy JH LAX Fall Ball!
In an effort to be clear and consistent for all JHLC teams for the benefit of player, parent and coach planning, lacrosse practice is scheduled rain or shine for all teams. In the instance whenthere is a threat of lightening under USLacrosse guidelines,or other extreme weather occurrence, practice may be delayed and/or cancelled by the headcoach. In the event practice is cancelled, a team manager and/or coach will send a text to the parents to pick up their player. Best efforts will be made to take cover in cars or nearby buildings, but it is important for parents to make arrangements for pick up as soon as possible. Also, please be sure your players have appropriate clothing for changes in mountain weather!

ABOUT JACKSON HOLE LACROSSE CLUB
The Jackson Hole Lacrosse Club is a registered non-profit 501(c) organiziation providing the youth of Jackson Hole the opportunity to learn and participate in the sport of Lacrosse, America's fastest growing sport. The club operates completely on a volunteer basis and as such has no employees. The club welcoms tax deductible donations online or by mail here.
Teams are open to boys and girls age 6 through high school. Volunteers are dedicated to promoting the sport of lacrosse and to developing our player's skills, sportsmanship, teamwork and accountability in a healthy and fun environment.
Home practice and game fields are ajacent to the Jackson Hole Middle School, Jackson Hole High School and Davey Jackson Elementary School. The main Spring season runs from April into early June, and the casual Fall season from Septemeber into November.
The Mission and Goals of Jackson Hole Lacrosse Club (“JHLC” or Jackson Hole Lacrosse”) are as follows:
To introduce and grow a community-based program that offers all youth in the Jackson Hole area, regardless of economic status, the opportunity to discover, embrace and participate in the sport of lacrosse, and to grow the sport while maintaining the highest ethical standards, providing quality coaching and instruction, and protecting and enhancing the well-being of participants in a safe and respectful environment.
The goals of Jackson Hole Lacrosse are several-fold:
• To share the passion of the lacrosse experience with a diverse player community
• To provide participating youth with quality coaching and instruction in a safe and respectful environment
• To grow the sport of lacrosse while promoting and maintaining the highest ethical standards
• To protect and enhance the physical well-being of local participants in the sport of lacrosse
The philosophy of the club is to develop players’ skills and understanding of the game, to provide for inclusion of all interested players, to allow flexibility for players and their families, to play safely, to be respectful of players, coaches, and referees, and to have a good time.
Although the club wants to field a team that can travel and play in regional tournaments, we also want the kids to be able to participate in other sports or activities if they choose as it is good for cross training, skill development and personal development.
The club would like players to come to practices as much as possible. If there is a regular or occasional conflict in scheduling, please let the coach know. An appropriate level of fitness training is required for skill development; drills, small scrimmages and conditioning are a part of each practice. The coaches teach and enforce the rules and safety precautions to minimize the risk of injuries.
