What team/program should I register for? 

We do teams and age grouping by a player's GRADE, not their date of birth.  You will see this breakdown as you go through registration.

After I register, how will I find out about practices and games?  How will I receive communication from the Coaches?

Practice times & locations, as well as games are posted to the team's webpages.

To receive team communication from Coaches you MUST be registered.  After that you will be rostered to your team in Sports Engine where you can receive communication from the coaches, as well as message them back or chat with other families on the team.

Are there scholarships available?

Yes!
Youth players should apply for scholarships with One22.
HS players should email info@jacksonholelacrosse.com directly to request a scholarship.

HOW TO BE A GOOD SPORTS PARENT

REQ'D VIEWING FOR PARENTS: Here is a great video from the Positive Coaching Alliance (speaker is Mitch Belisle - former Team USA defender & former NCAA Defensive POY):
https://devzone.positivecoach.org/resource/video/advice-sports-parents-its-your-childs-experience

"It's your child's experience!"
This can be a difficult message for parents to hear (and a tough one to have to tell them). Everyone wants their kid to be the best they possibly can be (coaches included). When we take away the pressure, let it be their experience, figure somethings out on their own, and develop their own relationship with sport it is far more beneficial to their development and passion for the sport. It may sound counterintuitive, but this approach supported by overwhelming data and testimonials from experts.
NOTE: regarding pressure, there is a difference between encouraging them to practice on their own/ be committed/ strive to be their best (this is great stuff), versus pressure to perform and execute on the field during competition.
