(Hint: When switching hands with the ball in your stick, loosen your bottom hand, slide the stick down between your knees, release with your top hand and grab on with your bottom hand, which is now the new top hand, and grab on to the bottom with your new bottom hand. This keeps the stick protected from the defense by keeping it low and close to your body - we'll send a video.)

(bantams and lightnings can do 10 of each of the above)

 

Week 7&8 (MON 5/4 to SUN 5/17)

Two Week Challenge.  Stick Tricks!  Creativity required!

Start by mastering two simple tricks.  First, toss the ball up, spin your stick so you catch it in the back of the netting, toss it back up and catch it in the front of the netting.  Next toss it up, then catch it behind your back or between your legs, then toss it up again from that position to catch it again in the normal position.

Now go to YouTube and search for Lacrosse Stick Tricks.  You'll see some pretty complicated stuff, but much of it starts with the simple tricks above.  Work on making your tricks more complicated and creative.

Coach Neal has posted a video on the WYL Facebook page showing the first two simple tricks and two harder ones.  We Challenge you to try those tricks and send a FB video (or a description by email) of what you can do, and then learn some harder or different ones and challenge the rest of the group to learn them.

So far, the best tricks on video go to:

1.  Ryan T

2.   Ryan's are so good, there is no room for second!

3.   Coach Neal

Queens of the Pike!

Queens of the Pike 2019

Triton Senior Girls took home the title of "Queens of the Pike" by coming from behind numerous times in a steady rain to win the inaugural trophy.  It is open to teams along the Route 5/15 Berlin Turnpike corridor.

Wallingford lost its two round robin games by two goals each to put it into the play-in game, where down early against host Whethersfield, the girls stormed back to win by one.  The win put them into the championship game to play their fourth game in a row without a break, where they again found themselves down early, only to come back to win 5-3.  All phases of the game were played at their highest level of the season, and mid-fielders controling a majority of the draws late in the championship game gave the team the chances it needed.  Defense played very tough, the goalies came up with numerous big stops, and the attackers used great spacing and attacked the goal for a flurry of goals to end the game.

Great job, girls!!  The 7th graders will need to defend their title in 2020!!

   The League is asking for everyone's help in making sure that no one climbs or plays on the high jump mat and pole volt mat at Sheehan.

   These mats are typically not out at Lyman Hall, however if they are, please make sure that everyone stays off of them as well.

Concussion Awareness

  Welcome back to school Wallingford Youth Lacrosse. As you and your lacrosse players are about to settle in to the routine of school and the fall, the WYL league is hard at work getting the 2017 season planned and ready for you all to enjoy next spring. (We even have some cool stuff happening this fall too!)

  Part of the process of getting everyone ready for next year’s season is making sure that you are all aware of the causes, signs, dangers of concussions, and what to do when you see the symptoms. Concussions are a part of every sport, especially lacrosse, and the WYL league takes them serious as should you.

  Please take a moment to follow the attached links that provide crucial information that you need to know about concussions and your children.

  Please note that this year and going forward, part of our registration process will include a section where you will be required to confirm that the league has provided you with this educational information.  

  Concussions are a SERIOUS part, of a great sport. Educate yourself and your player.

Via the NY Times:

"The young brain is especially susceptible to concussion, and sports-related concussions account for more than half of all emergency room visits by children aged 8 through 13, according to the National Athletic Trainers’ Association. A child who suffers a concussion is one and a half times more likely to experience another, and those who have had two concussions have a threefold greater risk of the same injury happening again."
