Lacrosse Sign-ups

Ballard will be playing a Varsity and a Jr Varsity team in Fall Brawl this year. Fall Brawl will be Saturday October 11, at Tom Sawyer Park. Fee for this event will be based on # of players and teams. Estimate is $22 - $33. This event is outside of the spring season and is not paid by the boosters. Fees are paid by individuals who participate.

Coaches Montgomery and Kirk want to have all players signed up with US Lacrosse with current US LAX #'s. This allows the boosters to conduct a group registration which makes life easier for all. In order for a player to be on the roster and get the US LAX #, the player must submit an initial $35 payment (as part of the spring season fees) and fill out any paperwork that the coaches give you. Please place a check in an envelope to be given to Coach Montgomery this week during conditioning. Checks should be made out to "Ballard Men's Lacrosse Boosters" and it helps if the players name is written on the memo line.

If you have recently renewed your US LAX #, then provide the number, expiration date and we will attempt to add you to the group registration list. Your fee for the spring season will be reduced by $35 to reflect the registration.

Lacrosse Team Pool Party

With the new school year quickly approaching, and no Friday football game yet, the Ballard Men's Lacrosse Team will have a pool party this Friday night.

Pool Party
Purely social event to reconnect - No lacrosse business to be addressed!
Players and Parents of Players (returning and new), Coaches, and Team Managers
Friday, August 15th, 8:30 - 11:30 PM (Tentative Time)
Brownsboro Farm Pool - 3615 Cascade Road
Click Here for Directions

Food will be lightly available from the catering skills of KFC and Kroger. Parents, we will have the clubhouse, patio, and pool. Please come and reconnect from the summer. (School/team event, so no alcohol beverages for anyone...thanks.) For new players and parents this will be a great time to start getting to know people.

Parking is somewhat limited...so, it will help if you can carpool.
Normal pool stuff needed like towels, swimsuits, etc. Lifeguard will be on duty.
I just need to know who is coming. Please respond back to me with name and how many in family are coming.

Looking forward to seeing everyone!

Alumni Mailing List

A former Alumni David Heyburn has brought up an excellent idea which is to keep an e-mail list of former players, so they can maintain contact with the program. David was on the original 2001 Ballard team and would like to continue to participate and support Ballard Lacrosse. Since only 7 years has past there are many players that can span the 7 years Ballard has been playing. Any former players who would like to be added to an alumni e-mail list, please send me your e-mail to my address listed on the blog, when sending me an e-mail, delete the spaces to deter spammers (don't copy and paste). If you have other e-mail addresses of former players send them as well. I'll be glad to organize the list. Wayne

2008 Alumni Game

All players and parents-
Spread the Word! The 2008 Ballard Lacrosse Annual Alumni game will be this Sunday, May 18 at 5 pm at the Ballard Stadium. Please spread the word to any current or former Ballard players. Coach Tyler, Grey, Daly and myself will be suiting up for the alumni. This is an informal event, so we will need any injured players (ie Steve and Cary) to assume reffing responsibilities from their lawn chairs while they work on their tan. Everyone else involved needs a reversible jersey and water. We're just going to show up, suit up, and have a good time.
Seniors- please spread the word to any alumni that you know are back in town from college (Facebook?)
