BYLA - 2015 Winter Lacrosse Update 10/1/15

Parents Good Morning, as we turn the page on the Summer with the official start of Autumn today I wanted to update you on our Winter plans (You’re probably thinking to yourself  "Winter?" “What is this idiot talking about?”  “It’s supposed to hit 80 degrees today!”) 
I hear ya but we as a program always need to be a season ahead. Hence the email…… 
We will be opening registration in early October for the ‘BYLA Winter Session’ held on Saturday mornings at the Underdome in Mt Vernon.

The program will run for ~ 12 weeks from December 5th till late February/early March (exact finish date TBD).

Youth Lacrosse

I wanted to share this note that was sent to me by a dear friend who started coaching youth lax. By way of background he was a High School All American and was a 2x All American at Johns Hopkins. Apologies in advance for the profanity.

"I swear I am the most competitive person in the world (I know everyone says that), but the emphasis on winning is a total effing joke. It’s really, really bad in the world of youth lacrosse. The way I coach my kids teams is, “Guys, I am going to develop the shtt out of you, you are going to play the game so that you have a real chance to be good and if we win or lose so be it.” I want my kids to play like a mini-college team and move the ball around. I want everyone to participate. There are so many idiots out there that just want to win. They give the ball to the biggest kid and he bulls around and scores, but the offense looks like total crap. Yet the parents are stoked. Parents all over the country completely undervalue development and instruction and just want to win."


Bill Belichick raves about incentivizing the hustle plays: “It’s the dirty work that doesn’t really show up on the stat sheet at the end of the game. It makes the difference between winning and losing.”
