2018 Summer Sandlot Lax Is Here

Now that summer is upon us, it’s time for summer lax ... specifically, Summer Sandlot Lax. Entering its thirteenth season in 2018, Summer Sandlot Lax has proven to be one of the most enjoyable activities sponsored by the Norwalk Lacrosse Association. Our objective for Summer Sandlot Lax is to have summer fun, in the spirit of old time sandlot sports for boys of all ages.

 

Play is informal, with teams picked at the beginning of each game based on who attends. This isn’t “lax camp.” There is no formal instruction during play … though occasional strangled cries of “shoot overhand,” or “go to the hole,” or “move the ball,” or “two hands on ground balls” are probably inevitable. Nevertheless, since even pick-up lax can become serious, we have certified officials for Summer Sandlot games to make sure play is safe and sportsmanlike.

 

Summer Sandlot Lax is open to Norwalk non-residents. However, they should be aware that the City of Norwalk charges non-residents a $5.00 parking fee to drive into Veterans Park.

 

You must be a member of US Lacrosse to participate in Summer Sandlot Lax. All NJrLax and other CONNY players are automatically members of US Lacrosse. Others can join online at www.uslacrosse.org (click on "Membership" in the left menu). 

 

Who: CONNY Senior, Junior, and Lightning boys in 2019
(In 3rd through 8th grade next fall.)

On a case-by-case basis, players entering 2ndgrade or below can participate with their coach’s recommendation.

What: This is old style pick-up lax, but with certified officials. One to three simultaneous games, depending on turnout. We play small sided, small field games when appropriate.

Where: Veterans Park

When: 12 Monday & Thursday Evenings, June 18—July 30 (Beginning Monday, June 18 and excluding Thursday, July 5)

            6:15 PM — Players pick teams.
            6:30 PM — 12-minute running time periods with 5-minute water breaks.

Cost$65.00 for 12 evenings

Register: Click on "Register Online" in the left menu on this Home Page, scroll down to 2018 Boys Youth Summer Sandlot Lax, follow the directions, and click on the green “begin registration” link.

Alternatively, a paper registration form is available for download under “Documents” in the left menu. Complete and mail it, with check, to Norwalk Summer Lax, 6 Rowan Street Unit #4, Norwalk, CT 06855-1936. 
You may also bring the Registration Form and a check to the first session you attend.

Parents Welcome to Play: In keeping with the informal atmosphere we encourage in Summer Lax, parents are welcome to play with their sons. Parents, older siblings, and coaches who play must be members of US Lacrosse, but need not pay a separate registration fee to participate.

#MikeyStrong Go Fund Me Appeal

Dear NJrL Lacrosse Community,

A member of our Norwalk Junior Lacrosse community, Michael (Mikey) Schneider, needs our help. Mikey, a 6th grader and dedicated NJrL laxer, was recently diagnosed with Neuroblastoma, a cancer of the nervous system. It's heartbreaking and devastating but Mike seems to be in good spirits and feeling ok...and if ever there were a family of scrappy, boisterous, loving fighters, it's the Schneider clan!! 

 

His cancer has metastasized throughout his body and will be difficult to treat. Most important, though, his cancer is treatable, and there is no reason to believe that Mikey will not make a full recovery. But it will be a long, tough fight. The Schneider Family and those who love Mikey all feel lucky that he is alive and that there is hope. He is truly pain free and is his typical fun loving, goofy self.

 

Those who know Mikey are not surprised to learn, that in true Michael Schneider fashion, even his high risk cancer falls into the “Go Big or Go Home” category. His tumor is so large that it has actually pushed his liver into the other side of his body.  His Oncology team can not believe he has been able to wrestle so intensively for the last four years, play soccer, play lacrosse for both Norwalk and the Maker A Wish Lax programs, and pursue all of his other activities. His wrestling nickname, “Magic Man” has actually become a self-fulfilling prophecy...as has his other wrestling nickname, “Chaos.” Michael never disappoints, right?!

 

If anyone can do this, it will be Mikey.  As many of you know, Mikey never chooses the easy path and will always do things his own way, with a little Mikey swagger.  We expect no difference here. 

 

The Schneider Family can’t thank you all enough for the support, love and care you have already given to their family.  #MikeyStrong will be the motto for all of us to use during the long fight ahead. #MikeyStrong will serve him well and serve as a reminder to us all about how tough and resilient Michael will be in his fight against cancer. One of Michael’s greatest strengths is that he will always try 200% to never let himself or anyone else down. 

 

Go Fund Me Page
Let's all show our support for Mikey in his battle and consider even the smallest donation to help his family through this very difficult time.  Here's a link to a Go Fund Me page that has been set up to support Mikey and the entire Schneider Family:

As Mikey's lacrosse coach for the last 6-7 years, this hits home and I am "all in" to help this wonderful young man in his fight.  He is truly a joy to be around and I can't wait to get him back on the field after his battle is won.  You will be hearing from me with updates and additional pleas for support.  Please just click the link...perhaps you'll be inspired to help.

 

#MikeyStrong

 

Respectfully,

If you haven't already seen it, the following link will take you to a terrific documentary video about the origins, history, growth, and future of both men's and women's lacrosse. It is well worth the fifty-five minutes it runs.

http://vimeo.com/64675548

The documentary does, however, omit one fascinating detail. James Naismith, credited with inventing basketball while teaching at Springfield College, was a Canadian and a lacrosse player. So it's not that lacrosse is a lot like basketball ... it's that basketball is a lot like lacrosse.

Enjoy.
