With the growth of our boys and girls participation, your help is needed more than ever.
A great way to support your child’s lacrosse experience is by becoming a volunteer for
the lacrosse program. It’s best to get started when your child first signs up for lacrosse,
so that you both can start together.
Volunteers are always need to do the following:
• Coach or assist the coach
• Keep score
• Run the clock
• Line the fields
• Manage equipment and uniforms
• Chaperone trips
• Organize a booster club and manage booster activities
• Organize coach and player clinics
• Hold cookouts and social events
• Organize carpooling and practices and games
• Assist in making schedules
• Assist during registration
• Photograph players and games
• Create a yearbook or program
• Take children to local and national lacrosse games and event
Or anything else you can think of!!
SFLAX sets a high standard for sportsmanship from our coaches, players, and parents.
We ask specifically for parents’ active involvement in making our sidelines a fun and positive place to be on game day. We will not tolerate unsportsmanlike conduct from members of our organization.
Please review the following guidelines for appropriate parental behavior:
- ALL parents must sit on the opposite sidelines from the team boxes. This includes all photographers and videographers
- CHEER— DON’T COACH— from the sidelines.
- Parents do not have the right to address any player who is not their child, except to compliment him. Regardless of what occurs on the field, parents should not be speaking to players, opposing coaches, or officials.
- Be a role model for the young players you are watching. Display your enthusiasm and composure, by supporting both teams on the field positively.
- Honor the game by respecting our opponents and officials. “Without an opponent, there is no game. Without an official, it’s just a scrimmage.”
- Leave fields better than you found them, and obey all posted rules about parking & pets. Please make sure that players clean up all trash, water bottles, etc. from sidelines & team areas after games. Alcohol is not permitted at any sflax game.
- Just as importantly, parents must recognize the difficulties involved in officiating a lacrosse game. Officials have a tremendously tough job and often receive unwarranted criticism. They are doing the best they can and the growth of lacrosse in New Mexico depends upon them!
