About the Monarch Lacrosse Club and SBGLA's connection to the club
What is a Club Team?
A club team is different from a recreational league in that the club team plays most of the year together as one cohesive team. The club plays other girls in their age group in a variety of tournaments and there is a considerable commitment expectation both in terms of time (practices, travel, etc.) and money (for coaches, equipment, tournaments, travel expenses, time away from work, etc.). This commitment really extends to the entire family and not just the player. A club team allows individual players to advance their skill set substantially and really learn how to play as one competitive team.
How is SBGLA connected to this new club?
Samantha Limkeman is the girl’s lacrosse coach for Dos Pueblos High School. She had always thought about starting a youth lacrosse club, and in discussions with the SBGLA board, we all agreed that it made sense to do it together. SBGLA is sponsoring and supporting Samantha’s lacrosse club by providing administrative assistance (for things such as team registration, use of TeamSnap, financial/banking, etc.). Basically, Coach Sam runs the day-to-day operations and coaching of the club, and SBGLA supports her in any way it can. We championed this venture because we really wanted to see a new playing opportunity in our community for girls who are ready for the next lacrosse challenge.
What are the details of this lacrosse club?
The Monarch Lacrosse Club currently has 12U and 14U teams for girls ages 9-14. Because this is a new endeavor for most involved, we are starting things slow while we figure out how everything works. The SBGLA Board of Directors met last month and officially voted on the adoption of a lacrosse club. We started the club teams with families of girls with prior playing experience and who had expressed an interest in wanting a “next step” for their daughters. Each team will have roughly 18-20 players who practice together 1-2 times per week with Coach Sam and assistant coach, Jessica Gastelum. We expect that the two teams will begin playing in tournaments in 2019.
