Welcome to Franklin 1/2 Blue!
My name is Kevin Boyce. Kevin Browne and I are excited to be your daughter's lacrosse coaches this spring! I played lacrosse in college and am looking forward to getting back out on the field and coaching this team. You can also find me at the ice rink as an Assistant Hockey Coach for a Franklin Flyers In-House Mites team.
Our philosophy for this age level is to develop the girls' skills so that they are improving and gaining self-confidence throughout the season while having fun. This is still lacrosse at the youth level, so we want the girls to be engaged and learning in a supportive environment where friendships can be made and a love of the sport of lacrosse can be fostered.
Here is some information that you will need for the upcoming season:
- Practices: Our team will be practicing on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:30-6:30. Practices will be held on the FHS football field or the New Turf (the turf directly in front of FHS). The first practice will be on Tuesday, March 23rd (depending on weather and field conditions)
Official practice times/location should be posted to the site next week. Please note that due to the Fall 2 HS sports season this schedule is subject to change.
- Games: Games will be played on Sundays in April, May, and the first half of June. Game start times range from 9:00 AM - 6:00 PM.
- Equipment Needed for Games & Practices:
- Girl’s lacrosse stick
- Girl’s lacrosse goggles
- A molded mouthguard
- A water bottle
- Sneakers or cleats
- Layers of clothing for practices (it can get windy and cold at the high school)
We are looking forward to a great season!
