PRESIDENT'S REPORT

On behalf of the Webster Lacrosse Club, Welcome to another year of Webster Lacrosse.  To our new families, welcome.  We hope you find our Club to be the right fit and spend some time with us.  To our returning families welcome back to another year of being here. It is a great place to be. We have the right people, in place, at the right time, to make this another great year! 

We are heading into our second spring season running youth programs as both “Little Warriors” and “Little Titans”. We are still “ONE” Webster Lacrosse Club with the same primary purpose to grow and promote the game of lacrosse in the town of Webster.  Involvement and participation are the key to our success.  Our goal is to generate participation to the level of having two modified lacrosse teams at both Spry and Willink Middle schools.

We look forward to another year of watching the boys grow and play such an amazing game and meeting all the new families out on the field.        

BOARD OF DIRECTOR’S REPORT

It is that time of year to send an important message.  We are an all-volunteer organization.  We love the Game.  So, do you.  As it should be.

We also have lives of our own.  We have children of our own.  We have jobs, marriages, and relationships to attend to.  Our children’s lacrosse experience is just as important as your family’s experience.  To that end, we call on all lacrosse families to collaborate and come together and support our “Core Values.”  Buy in and have fun together.

Our Board of Directors have been meeting since last September, the start of the new “lacrosse year” planning for the Spring Season.  It is finally here.  From top to bottom, we are committed to playing the “medicine game” in our own back yard. 

But we need your help.  We do not care whether you played the game in the past or are a complete novice.  As a Club, we measure success by involvement.   The feast is always better when everybody brings a dish to pass.  Our unit of measurement for success is about involvement, fun, and life lessons that transcend the game, not just through wins and losses or individual accolades.  Those latter things are important, but they just seem to be more frequent when we focus on the former...involvement, fun, and life lessons.  Simply put, they are a side effect, not the goal.

As we begin the Spring season, we have a preliminary list of volunteer coaches and volunteers, but it is just that. Preliminary.  Recruiting more people into the leadership positions is always a prime focus of our organization.  There is always room for more.   In addition to our coaching needs, the Club has a great need for volunteers for field set up and break down, field lining, string goals, clean up at the Box, team moms or dads for snacks, timekeepers, and injury help with ice, cuts, etc.  The list is endless.

At the Board level we are always in a state of transition as our little guys become bigger boys and eventually, grown men and move on to the next station in their lives.  We have open opportunities with many Committee Chairmen positions.

These are significant positions, and we need to fill them. Board positions are One-year terms that run from 8/1 to 7/31 of the following year.  Two-year terms run the same.  The Secretary and Treasurer have 2-year term.  All Other board positions are 1-year term.

Anyone interested in serving in these positions should contact the Club President directly.

CLOSING COMMENTS

So here we are once again, another year carrying on the traditions of the past...the medicine game.  Passing it on from one generation to the next.  The same conversations but with different names.  How do we make WLC better?  How can we improve on what we have?  Those are good, necessary conversations. Our measurement of success is involvement within our community. That is the difference between good and great programs.  Great Players, Families and even great coaches come and go...but it is the traditions that abide.  There is a good argument that things are just fine, and our Club will be that way for a long, long time if we stick to our Core Values.  As they should be and as they always will. 

Have fun folks; embrace our core values and our heritage as a Club of celebrating the simple but disciplined lessons of promoting lacrosse in our own back yard.  We will see you on the fields, see you at the Box and we will see you at the Classic.  It is going to be another great year of Webster Lacrosse!
