SBLC Newsletter, 2017 #11

May 17, 2017

This is it, last weekly newsletter of the 2017 season. With that, there’s several important wrap-up items, please be sure to read.

 

General News

Board Nominations – Parents should have received yesterday a request for nominations for our 2017-2019 board elections. Deadline to submit is May 31. If you did not receive that email, please follow-up at .

Volunteer Fee Refunds – To request a refund of your $50 volunteer deposit, please complete the online form at https://leagueathletics.com/UserForm.asp?RegID=146302&org=SNOLAX.COM . Requests must be received by June 30, 2017.

NSYL Week Eleven

K/1/2 Red vs. Bellingham
K/1/2 Black vs. Monroe

 

3/4 Red 11 – Monroe Black 7

 

5/6 Black 6 – Glacier Peak 6

From the coaches:

It was a hard fought game, the boys never quit.  In the fourth quarter we came back from a 3/6 deficit to tie the game with only 1 1/2 minutes remaining.  The defense played well protecting their goalies, hats off to Fletcher and Gabe.  All the boys made adjustments during the game and had great spacing, showing how much they have grown as a team this season. 

Our top stat holders were Cohen and Keaton with 8 and 10 ground balls respectively, Cohen with 3 goals, Wil, Keaton, Noah with 1 each and assists by Wil and Avery.  It has been a pleasure coaching these boys. 

Coach Kevin

 

I am very proud of all the boys for what they have accomplished this season.  They grew a lot as a team and they never quit even when they were down.  As a result, we only lost one game all season!  It has been a fun year.

Looking forward to the Lynden Tournament this weekend. 

Coach Jason

 

5/6 Red 4 – Skagit Blue 2

From Coach Jim:

5/6 Red finished the regular season strong with a 4-2 win over Skagit Valley Blue.  Playing with 11, our boys dug deep to push through as a team for the win.  Our tight roster of 13 players, including 5 first year players, has really come together as a team with contribution from everyone!  The win secured a 7-1-1 regular season.  Great job guys!  Goals were scored by Colton, Wil, Cole and Jackson (1 each), and the assists from Wil, Noah and Jackson (1 each).  Keep up the hard work.

-Coach Jim

 

 

7/8 Black 10 – Monroe Orange 5

From Coach Brett:

Snohomish Black ended up undefeated this regular season!

Monroe was a tough game at the start with the score 5-4 at half. The boys dug deep and started following and pulled out a victory 10-5 to end the season. Thank you parents for the support and look forward to the tourney this weekend and Harvey Cup to finishes things off!!!!

High School Season Concludes

Snohomish 10 – Glacier Peak 12 (Varsity)

Snohomish 11 – Jackson 2 (JV)

The 2017 Varsity & JV seasons ended last weekend. Our varsity team lost a close one to GP in a tight, back-and-forth game. The good news was a great turnout and atmosphere for the game, and a moving remembrance of Steve Bush. King 5 TV covered our community’s tribute with a story and video, very nicely done. We also honored our 4 graduating seniors.

Saturday night, our JV played their 12th and final game, beating Jackson 11-2.

The high school team banquet is on May 18, and team paintball on May 20. Details on those two events have been sent separately.

From Coach Coté:

Thanks for a great season.  Friday night may not have ended up the way we wanted, but I was very proud of our team, our families, and most importantly, our community in their support of the Bush family.  

I am already looking forward to summer practices and getting ready for next season.

 

 

 

 

NSYL Week Ten

K/1/2 Red vs. Mukilteo
K/1/2 Black vs. Monroe

 

3/4 Red 4 – Bellingham 5

 

5/6 Black 8 – Skagit Grey 8

From Coach Jason:

Saturday was a good full team effort for 5/6 Black. After jumping out to an early first half lead, the boys found themselves in a second half hole and had to fight back twice to earn the 8-8 tie. Great job by the defense as a whole. Shout outs to Fletcher with 5 saves, in only his second half playing keeper, Keaton lead the team with 9 GB's and Avery, Keaton, Wil and Mason all scored, with assists on 5 of 8 goals from Wil, Avery, Jeremy and Kelton. Nicely Done!

Coach Jason

 

 

5/6 Red 8 – Mukilteo 1

From Coach Jim:

This week’s win against Mukilteo was a team win.  Every player, once again, contributed and showed it in the score book as everyone recorded a stat.  Each week, the boys keep getting better and better with increased effort and confidence.  Great job by our defense and goalies giving up only 1 goal.  Shout out to Wil with 3 goals, Avery with 2 goals, Cole with 2 goals and Spencer with an assist.

Coach Jim

 

7/8 Black 14 – Mukilteo 1

From Coach Brett:

This week Snohomish Black played their most complete game yet beating Mukilteo 14-1.  On the offensive side of the ball we were able to set up our plays and ran them effectively putting a number of shots on cage and in the back of the net.  Defensively we limited them to just a hand full of shots on goal and made some amazing clears resulting in a few goals.  Shout out to the team as a whole this week and look forward to our last game of the season this Saturday in Monroe.

 

7/8 Red 7 – Monroe Orange 5

From Coach Charlie:

At halftime the team was down 4-0 to Monroe.  Coach Chad and the boys talked about heart and working hard for the teammate next to you and playing Snohomish Lacrosse.  With a cheer of "Bush" at the end of half the boys battled and won 7-5.  Coach Chad and I couldn't be prouder of the boys for the never quit attitude they brought to the game.

Coach Green

From Coach Chad:

Saturdays game was a special one for not only the coaches but the players and the parents. We lost an amazing member of our brotherhood last Monday to a heart attack Steve Bush , 41. The week was rough for all, As a coach I tried to be present and help the boys continue their season, but I found myself in a fog most of the week, Head Coach Charlie, picked up the pieces and did his best to keep the guys focused.

Saturday we stepped on the field, still in the fog. We just couldn't seem to get out of the funk. Warm-ups were sloppy, passing and catching was difficult and I think we all were physically present yet our minds were somewhere else. Halftime we were down 4-0! The Sun was out, we had nothing to lose and everything to gain. Head Coach Charlie and I didn't say much at the half, simply "play like it's 0-0, Coach Steve would want you to leave it all on the field, He would want you to try, have fun and love this game, WIN or Lose leave it on the field"!

...AND THEY DID!! Zeke Neubauer had a season high 5 goals, "PG" added an amazing 2 goal in his return, and the team played lights out the second half to win 7-5 over Monroe.

Coach Bush preached perseverance, he taught a lot of these boys how to overcome fear and defeat, how to rise above the fog. This game was special, they figured it out! They played together, they played hard, the fought for every possession, every ground ball, they made every second of that second half count. They left it ALL on the field; and once again Steve Bush's spirit appeared and amazing things happened for our team. After the game, we huddled close and there was not much I could say, except Thank you, and that He would have been proud of each and every one of them. BUSH on 3!  1,2,3...

SBLC Newsletter, 2017 #9

May 3, 2017

We lost a member of our extended family, when Steve Bush passed away Monday morning. Besides his wife Angie, daughter Tara, and son Nick "Shrub," Steve leaves behind many friends and young men whom he coach in our community.
Beginning in 2012, Steve coached lacrosse, youth football, and high school football for Snohomish and Glacier Peak.

Quoting a dear friend of the Bush family, Kari Taylor: 

"What mattered most to Steve was his family as well as his additional extended family, those boys he coached throughout the years. Every single boy loved Coach Steve. He did it right. He honored the game on all levels and made sure your kid loved the game as well."

It is with love, yet very heavy hearts, that we announce and invite you to come Celebrate Steve Bush's Life this Sunday, May 7th, at 1pm at the Snohomish High School Commons. We welcome kids to wear a uniform of their choice.

A release of balloons (Blue, Silver, Red or Black) will follow, with your help, to honor Steve and the amazing husband, father, coach, son, brother and friend that he was. His Spirit will be carried always by those whom he touched, and there are many, and may you have Peace within.

In addition, Nick Bush will lead the Team Captains from both GP as well as SHS at this Friday night’s high school game along with a moment of silence.


SBLC Annual Meeting & Board Elections

Our club annual meeting will be held Tuesday, June 6, 6:30PM at Centennial Middle School. The last two annual meeting have been consumed by club splits, so we’re looking forward to a more relaxed opportunity to review the previous season, take suggestions for the next year, and hold board elections. The following positions are up for election for the 2017-2019 term:

  • President
  • Treasurer
  • Athletic Director
  • Equipment Director
  • Uniform Coordinator
  • Fundraising Director

The next regular board meeting is on May 9, 6:30PM at Todo Mexico. As always meetings are open to all, and we’d invited anyone interested in serving on the board to come and ask questions.

 

High School Season Winds Down

The 2017 Varsity & JV seasons end this weekend. Friday night, the varsity hosts Glacier Peak at Snohomish High School Memorial Stadium for “Volley Across the Valley II” (if you have a better name idea for this match up, I’m all ears). Senior Night ceremonies start at 7:00PM and game starts at 8:00PM. All youth players are encouraged to come wearing jerseys or pinnies.

JV closes out their season Saturday night, 8PM, versus Jackson JV, game at Glacier Peak.

From Coach Coté:

The season is coming to an unexpected close this Friday night as the boys are facing a rematch against GP at Veterans Memorial Stadium at 8PM.  It is Senior Night, and we will be saying good bye to Nolan Harris, Alex Wartes, Ryan Steadman and Ray Destefano who have all had great seasons for us this year. Additionally, we will have a special guest, Nick “Shrub” Bush will be our Honorary Team Captain for the game.  His dad, Steve, passed away suddenly on Monday, and we want to honor his life and commitment to youth sports in our area especially his time as a Snolax assistant coach.  Festivities will start at 7:00 PM, and moment of silence will take place just prior to faceoff and National Anthem at 8:00 PM.  The game will also be broadcasted on www.stspn.com for family and friends that can’t make it.   

The team had a chance to be the #2 3A WESCO seed in the playoffs for the first time since the 2012 State Championship team, but ran into a tough Meadowdale team last week and this week.  The losses knocked us out of contention, but the season has still been a success when you look at the age and experience of our team.  We have one of the youngest teams in conference, and we are only graduating 4 seniors.  Additionally, we have a strong 8thgrade class moving up next year, so the program is looking in good shape.  We still need to recruit as many players as we can from both SHS and LSHS for next year.  Lake Stevens will split off in 2019, and we want to set them up for success as much as we can. Having players come out next year and get a year of lacrosse under their belts will help them launch their program the following year.  Our program goal for the future is to have 3 HS teams – V, JV and C.  60+ boys playing Snohomish Lacrosse would be a great accomplishment for our program, and it starts with parents at all levels spreading the word and getting their sons’ friends to join in the fun.  

End of season banquet will be on May 18th at CMS commons from 6-8 PM.  Rhonda Call will send out more info.  Thank you to all the parents and board members who work tirelessly to support the program at all levels. Snohomish Lacrosse is in great shape and the future is bright.  Looking forward to what the future has in store. 

 

Last Chance Snolax Logo Sign & Letterman’s Jacket Raffle

One of our high school parents has donated this one-of-a-kind metal Snolax logo sign. The boosters just added a letterman’s jacket raffle as well. Tickets will be sold before and during the game, and the raffle drawing will take place before the game’s conclusion. You must be present to win.

 

Three Rivers Shootout

We took four youth teams to the Three Rivers Shootout in Kennewick last weekend.

On the field, our combined 7/8 team went 4-2 and won the Silver Bracket, defeating Lake Tapps 7-3 in the finals. Our 5/6, 3/4 and K/1/2 teams enjoyed the experience of playing a lot of games against different opponents and styles of play than what we see during the league season.

Off the field, players and families appreciated the time to have fun together and bond. We owe huge thanks to Roberta & Chris Cook who organized our team area and BBQ, including trailering over all the food and supplies. Dane Dorsey donated the hamburger and hot dog buns. Theresa Smith brought the big red “S” flag, and Molly Perry put up the Snolax feather signs. And many others lent totes, tables, coolers and other items for the BBQ.

May 6 Youth Game Schedule

Our original plan for May 6 was to host all our youth games at Snohomish High School. However, because school sports team take priority, we were bumped earlier this week. Games now will be between Valley View MS and Glacier Peak. Automated schedule updates went out last night. That rescheduling has also affected Clothes for the Cause below…

Saturday, truck will be at GP from 12-1.

Varsity

Snohomish will be playing Glacier Peak for the first time Friday night. From Coach Coté:

Friday night is a huge night for our program.  Not only is it a big night for playoffs, but a big night because we are playing our former brothers in arms, GPHS, for the first time.  We need the boys to get the word out at school about the game, have family and friends attend the game wearing RED, BLACK and WHITE gear, and really get our fans to pack GPHS stands. I know the boys are looking forward to it. Let's make it a special night for the entire Snohomish Lacrosse family.

From Coach Kevin Keith:

The entire team contributed to the win, all working together, with nearly everyone getting some kind of stat in the book. The defense stepped up, as well as our keeper with many saves. Jeremy Hammack was recognized for playing his position well in Attack and creating opportunities for his teammates to score.

Great game boys, looking forward to another great game this week!

7/8 Black 10 – Bellingham Black 4

From Coach Brett Wynne:

It might have been the spring break with the boys starting the game off a little slow but ramping it up for the second half. We settled down and started to run our offense effectively moving the ball around. Shout out this week to Seth who is becoming a faceoff beast and also one of our brand new players Aiden who hustled at attack and was able to allow us to hold possession from missed shots running to the end line!

 

7/8 Red 9 – Monroe 4

From Coach Charlie Green:

After falling behind 2-0 in the first minute, the boys rallied and played their most complete game of the year. The boys played tough defense and limited Monroe to a total of 5 shots in the second half. We maintained possession of ball and worked together as a team. The coaches are proud of the boys for sticking together. We look forward to seeing improvement every week as we enter the final stretch of the season. Go Red!!

7/8 Black 11 – Everett 0

From Coach Brett Wynne:

The boys came out to play last weekend shutting out Everett 11-0!  On the offensive side of the ball they took advantage of fast breaks and broken plays moved the ball quickly.  Defensively we came out with a game plan and it worked to a T!  Shout out this week to our d-poles Errol,

Sylas, Carson and Cado for shutting down their attack making it almost impossible to get a good shot on goal.

7/8 Red 11 – Mukilteo 3

From Coach Charlie Green:

7-8 Red posted their first win of the season against Mukilteo.  The boys are coming together and playing as a team.  Our defense stood strong only allowing 3 goals.  On offense we had 4 different goals scorers.  Great game Red.

SBLC Newsletter, 2017 #1

March 1, 2017

Good afternoon, Snolax Families. Welcome to the 2017 season, and the first of our weekly newsletters that will run through May. These newsletters will be our chance to catch up with all 8 Snolax teams; share club news; and also some features. We really enjoy showing what our players are doing off the field. Ideas are always appreciated, please send to .

 

NSYL Jamboree 2017

The third annual North Sound Youth Lacrosse league jamboree took place last Saturday at GPHS, ably hosted by our friends at Glacier Peak Lacrosse.

SBLC had five teams in the jamboree, all eager to play against someone in a different jersey for the first time this spring. We also had several of our high school players getting on-field referee training.

5/6 Black

From Coach Kevin Keith:

It was a great kick-off to the 2017 Season; high energy and fun out there today. All my boys did great and showed maximum effort. A special call out to Quentin, who was a rock in goalie, and to all my new players for getting their first game behind them! We have a lot to work on going forward but the future is bright. Go Snohomish Black!!

5/6 Red

From Coach Mark Perry:

I am so proud of the boys. They played hard and worked together as a team. Here are a few game stats. We had eight players with a total of twelve shots. We had twelve players with a total of twenty seven ground balls. Wil Henderson with an assist. Cole States in his first game with his first career goal. This shows we have a team that works together. This shows we have a selfless team willing to help each other out. We have come a long way in only seven practices. Great Job 5/6 Red! See you Tuesday. We got work to do.

7/8 Black & Red

From Coach Brett Wynne:

It was great to get back out on the field this last weekend!  It was good to see our veteran players to our brand new contribute on the field.  Looking forward to playing at Lake Stevens High School this weekend to kick off the season!

Quick side note on that, 7/8 Black’s game Saturday will be our first youth game in at least four years at Lake Stevens High School. This is a great chance to invite Lake friends to check out a game. It’s a particularly special homecoming for Coach Brett who played football and soccer at Lake Stevens.

K/1/2 Gearing Up

Coach Ray Riojas and the mighty K/1/2 kids will be practicing for the first time next Tuesday. We have great numbers with this group, which is the future of our club.

 

High School Begins

At the other end of the age spectrum, our high school team also started practice this week under Coach Chris Coté and our fullest high school staff in years, perhaps ever. And the staff is enjoying our largest team since 2013, even after our split with GP.

Coach Coté notes, “We’re very excited to be back at high school ball.  The boys brought a lot of enthusiasm last night.  Our first game at GPHS on March 14 against Woodinville.  We need a big crowd.”

Club Fundraisers Update

We have two major fundraisers this season and the first one can be started now - and I know that some have already started!!!

CLOTHES FOR A CAUSE —
We have done this fundraiser the past three years and it is a great way to raise money, spring clean and NOT sell anything!!!! All you have to do is clean out closets and drawers of old clothes, shoes, bedding, etc. Then ask your friends and family to do the same. It is the easiest way to make money for the club.

I am attaching a flyer for you to distribute and share with your friends and family. The information will also be on the SNOLAX website.

Please start collecting now! Hit up relatives, neighbors, Schools (lost & found items), dry cleaners, Laundromats, nursing homes, daycares, etc. Possibilities are endless!!!

Clothes/textiles do NOT need to be in good condition, bleached, torn or full of holes is all good for this fundraiser. Socks that have lost their match, towels, bedding, shoes, purses, belts - we NEED it all.

COLLECTION Day will be May 6 at Snohomish High School. That is one Saturday when the Snohomish youth teams all have home games and we will have the collection truck at SHS.

FOR NOW - get the word out to your friends & family to start cleaning out closets!!!!

Costco Gift Card Raffle 2017

Our 2017 raffle starts next week with packets going out to families. Tickets are due back on March 29, and first of 10 prize drawings start on April 10. This another area where we could use another couple volunteers to help with distributing and collecting packets.

Questions - contact Susan Scott our club fundraiser coordinator at fundraising@snolax.com

 

Merchandising Is Where It’s At

Just ask Star Wars. Our team swag store will open again in late March or early April, with delivery in time for Three Rivers (see below).

And our window stickers are returning soon, including the traditional design and a new Panther Lacrosse logo. Stickers are selling for $5 each, and will be available from team managers or Molly Perry. Sign me up for 5.

 

Three Rivers Shootout

One of the most fun things we do as a club is the annual Three Rivers Shootout in Kennewick, April 29 & 30. Coaches and team managers have been gauging interest over the past couple weeks, and it sounds as though we’ll have another great contingent making the trip. More details will be forthcoming, but it’s never too soon to make your hotel reservations. Molly Perry has secured a room block at the Pasco Red Lion, where we’ve stay the last couple trips.

Hotel: Red Lion Inn - Pasco

Each individual guest must make their own reservations by calling 1-800-RED-LION (1-800-733-5466) by Friday, April 7, 2017.  They must identify themselves as members of Snohomish Lacrosse.

Group Code: SNOH0428 (zero428)

Premium Guest Room Two Queen Beds    $119.00 + tax. This rate includes the Breakfast Buffet.

 

General Club News & Notes

Communications – Anything related to specific teams and schedules will always come through our LeagueAthletics service, which sends out emails, texts and mobile app notifications. If you think you might not be getting these, please first check your Snolax.com account preferences, which does have options to send no emails or text messages. Clubwide announcements, such as this humble newsletter, get posted to the frontpage of Snolax.com and emailed. We do try to balance getting information out to our members against bombarding everyone with emails. General interest things we find often get posted to our Club Facebook page. The high school team has a dedicated Facebook page too. Finally, we have a Club Twitter @sno_lax, and an Instagram @sno_lax. Some, but not all, Instagram pictures get cross-posted to Facebook, so definitely follow that account.

Club Growth — Despite back-to-back years of splitting the Club (Girls in 2015, GP in 2016), SBLC grew 50% from 2016 in terms of Snohomish/Lake Stevens players. We have 44 first-year players this season and a several more who have returned.

Lake Stevens High School Lacrosse — And speaking of splits, WHSBLA has mandated that Lake Stevens must be an independent high school team for the Spring 2019 season. We will be sad to see our Vikings go, and yet we look forward to an even bigger Wesco Lacrosse conference. Several Lake parents have already started the groundwork, and there’s even a Facebook page. If you would like to help, email and we’ll get you connected.

Current opinion seems to be to keep Lake Stevens youth players (K-8) under the Snohomish Lacrosse program for the near future.

Flexibility — One of the big downsides of the split with GP has been cutting down our available practice space. That moves to another level in March with the additional of all school spring sports, plus our high school team, and the Girls club practices. We’ve been practicing at new fields this year, and that will continue. Long-timers know to expect the unexpected, and we thank you for your patience.

Thank Yous — All of the board, boosters and volunteers have put in a lot of effort over the past six months in this transition period preparing for the spring. I’d like to spotlight two people who are more behind-the-scenes in that they’re not coaches or team managers. Kier Keith, club field scheduler, has gone above and beyond working through the aforementioned fields issue, for not only this year but for the future. Kier formed new relationships with the city and county parks & rec departments informing them of our needs as new facilities are being planned. Jacob Brown, club equipment manager, handled the division of hard assets with GP over the summer and then went right to work getting our existing equipment repaired and new purchased. All fall and winter, Jacob strung goals, built game kits, outfitted goalies, and hauled gear from one end of the county to the other. Thank you, Kier and Jacob, for putting in the work for our kids.
