Gang Green Lacrosse

Hello and happy new year Shen Girls Lax parents & players!

Below you will find all the details about our 2021 Gang Green lacrosse program.  This is NOT the Spring rec program – stay tuned for details about that.  This is our “travel” program for girls who want to train and play at a higher level in the off season.  To clarify, our local rec program is called the Shen youth lacrosse program.  Our travel/club program is called “Gang Green”.  As you’ll see at the bottom, all questions should be directed to ganggreenlax@gmail.com.  THANK YOU

We’re happy to announce all the details of our 2021 Gang Green Lacrosse program and open registration for the summer and fall.  Please make sure you read entirely.  We have provided the entire years program information in advance including an entire years schedule (summer & fall).

Good riddance 2020.  We had a great program set to go last year but COVID prevented us from the travel and tournament play that the kids love.  We adapted as best we could, training a great deal and putting together the fall 7v7 to get some game play in.  We must say, the girls were GREAT.  It’s not easy to train so much, running drills and doing stick work without the payoff of the tournament competition.  They stuck with it and kept a stick in their hands continuing to play for the love of the sport.  I think we can all agree that 2021 should (will) be different and we’re planning for a great year for our players and families.  We saw a lot of player progress at all levels even based on the circumstances they faced.

Registration details are listed below and is now OPEN!!!

Coaching continuity:

As was the plan in 2020, one coach will be assigned to each team for the entire year.  We believe that the former & current college players have a positive impact on our club program.  Helping bring the latest girls lacrosse concepts and drills back to our club.  They are great role models and have a ton to offer from a lacrosse perspective.  Going forward, they will continue to assist the club at practices and as assistant coaches during our summer tournament season.  Our current and former college player coaches represent players from UAlbany, University of Vermont, UMass, Syracuse, Le Moyne, Wagner, Quinnipiac, and a few others.  Plus more to come…

Communications:

Our registration, calendar and all parent and player communications will continue on the “Team Snap” platform.  Please download the Team Snap app.

HUDLNEW for 2021!!! 

The club has purchased a HUDL account for the 2022/23 and 2024/25 teams for the year.  This will allow us to upload game film for every tournament game in 2021, allowing players and parents to begin pulling clips and creating the highlight videos that are essential in the college recruiting process.  This will also allow coaches to watch film and send clips to players to reinforce some positive things or point out where there is room for improvement.  We have been trialing it this winter and its ready for 2021.  Each player is highly encourage set up a player profile on our team HUDLaccount and take advantage of this great tool.

The HUDL team will also keep all statistics for the 2022/23 team and post them on their team page.

Recruiting 2022-2024 only: 

Stay tuned for a recruiting meeting for those eligible players or soon to be eligible players!!! Separate communication will be sent out to you once registration is completed.

Parent help:

THANK YOU to those parents who have helped with parent communications, tournament check in, dining arrangements, game filming and hotel reservations.  We will be looking for more help in 2021 and we’ll be reaching out to you individually to confirm that.  Our goal is to have a parent helper for each team in 2021 to help make sure things run smoothly.  Thank you in advance!

Roster size:

The girls work hard in practice.  You dedicate your time and money to travel club lacrosse.  With all that effort and sacrifice, we simply cannot find ourselves in situations where we are coming up short on players for our tournaments.  In addition, we have to ensure rosters are not overloaded impacting playing time.

Uniforms:

Each player is responsible for ordering their team uniform.  You can order uniforms directly from our vendor now using the link below.  The kit includes shorts, reversible jersey and long sleeve shooting shirt with player number on the shoulder and last name on the lower back.  Gang Green will assigned numbers to new players.  Returning players purchasing another uniforms, please use your current jersey number.  There’s also some new cool GG swag on the webstore.
