Dear Shark River Girls 7th & 8th Grade Parents,
Thank you for your support in the 2017 Shark River Girls Lacrosse 7th & 8th grade select and travel team evaluations. The turnout of players was tremendous and the level of competition within this age group has exceeded that of previous years. The Shark River program continues to evolve and our mission is to continue to introduce new players to the sport of lacrosse as well as develop and advance players through appropriate curriculums and competition. In an effort to make all the right decisions regarding your daughter's team selection, we hired outside experienced coaches and relied primarily on their scores and evaluations. With the conclusion of the 2017 evaluations, we have selected 27 girls for our Select Team roster and 27 girls for our Travel Team roster.
Because of the heavy roster sizes of both teams, we have selected a schedule of games that provides all teams with appropriate levels of competition and ample playing time to ensure that they continue to develop and excel.
All Roster announcements will be communicated through the www.sharkriverlacrosse.com website and the SIplay app!! We still have a handful of parents who have not registered at all or did not complete registering your daughter…please do so ASAP! You will not receive your daughter’s team placement until she is registered on the new site.
To those parents and players not chosen to participate on our select team, we understand that not making this team can be disappointing news. We ask that you communicate to your daughter that their continued development and ability to compete against similar competition will provide them with the best environment to succeed. Players: Please don’t get discouraged! It’s still early in your overall lacrosse career. Hold your head high and be proud of the hard work you’ve put into the sport and your accomplishments thus far!
With the enthusiasm and commitment that the 7th and 8th grade girls have shown in the evaluations alone, we as their coaches are looking forward to an exciting 2017 season!
