Thank You To Our Volunteer Coaches!

Thank you to all of our volunteers, particularly our coaches who spend a tremendous amount of time learning, planning, and executing in practices, games and off-the-field events. Please be sure to thank your coaches for the incredible job they do as volunteers to help your children fall in love with the game!

 

A special thanks to parents Doug Gnutti (A3) and Paul Mangeot (B3) who both stepped up to be Head Coaches for the Boys A3 (7/8) and B3 (5/6) teams. Congratulations to Jeff Mote, Brian Trymbiski and Paul Mangeot for completing their US Lacrosse Men's Game Coaching Certification and Kelly Tait, Amy Warfield and Brian Pitts for completing their US Lacrosse Women's Game Coaching Certification.  A special shout out to Paul, who completed his certification within a few weeks of volunteering as a Head Coach. 

 

Thank you all for stepping up to help foster growth of lacrosse in our community! 

 

Many parent volunteers who are currently coaching in our lacrosse community, did not have much, if any, formal lacrosse training or experience prior to volunteering. CBAA provides joint practices with these coaches and teams and offers to reimburse coaches for lacrosse certifications, clinics, or other educations sessions that the coaches attend. The crossover to coaching lacrosse is much like coaching basketball, soccer, or hockey.  Much of the same terminology applies and many of the games' nuances are the same, so if you're interested in learning more about how to get involved as a coach, please email   or   and let us know!

Blog Post: Giving Lacrosse a Try

 

For a number of years, I have encouraged my sons to give lacrosse a try. Since they stopped playing baseball, the spring season was sports-free. This year, my boys heard that many of their friends were playing in the CBAA lacrosse league, and they indicated some interest in joining. So, like any other optimistic and driven mother, I took that as a firm yes and signed them up!

 

Both of my boys have played soccer and basketball since they were young and love participating in team sports. While they were a little intimidated at first, they were told that their experience playing other field sports would be helpful when learning lacrosse. I will admit when I signed them up that I did not realize they needed a full set of equipment (protective gear, helmet and stick), which runs around $250. Tip for my fellow parents: There are options to purchase previously-used equipment through local stores or to rent equipment for the season from the CBAA (contact Nick Walter at nick.walter@cbaasports.org for more information) for anyone who wants to keep the costs down.

 

Lacrosse first got my attention after hearing some unbelievable stories from close friends and relatives whose kids have been recruited for college teams as early as their sophomore year in high school. Whether starting lacrosse at a young age or picking up a stick for the first time as a teenager, it seems that kids who develop solid skills have a pretty good chance of continue playing in college.

 

I am writing this blog one week into the season, but the early signs are positive – my sons are enjoying the new challenge and recognize that they will need to devote time to further develop and refine their skills.

 

I am a firm believer in giving kids the opportunity to find what they are good at and enjoy. I am glad that my boys decided to give lacrosse a try!

 

- Kelly Burnetta, mother of 12 & 14-year-old sons

Waiver Policy

Waiver Policy & Instructions

 

Players with NO home program

The current SEPYLA requirement for players who do not have a home program is for those players to notify SEPYLA of their desired Spring Season program. SEPYLA has not finalized this process, but the current steps when registering for CBAA are as follows:

  • Send an e-mail to  oyslax@cbaasports.org with a copy to 
  • The Email must contain: Player's Name, Date of Birth, Grade, and Home Address
  • Include a statement confirming that they wish to play for CBAA Lacrosse because their home school district does not have a youth program.
  • Identify if the player is a first year player - if they are an experienced player, provide the name of the program they participated in the prior spring.

 

Players within the boundaries of an ACTIVE program

Any player who resides within another team boundary, and wishes to play for the CBAA, must go through the SEPYLA waiver process BEFORE registering with CBAA. 

The formal waiver process is defined on the SEPYLA website.  However,  the following steps outline the process:

  • An e-mail needs to be sent to Steve Lehman, chairman of the SEPYLA competition committee, explaining the hardship and reason for the request to play for the CBAA. 
  • There is a $25 fee for the waiver process, payable to SEPYLA. 
  • PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT SEPYLA WILL ONLY GRANT WAIVERS FOR EXTREME HARDSHIP CASES - NOT JUST BECAUSE YOU WANT TO CHANGE PROGRAMS. 

As a reminder our territory includes all feeder schools to CB East, CB West and Palisades.  If your physical address does not reside in these boundaries, you need to obtain a waiver OR register with your home program.  No exceptions!!
