How to documents updated

How To Documents are updated

 

The declaration process page has been updated - see here

 

Tips and tricks of how to ensure you can schedule games and that the correct teams are registered are shown.

 

Additional documents:

how to schedule and update scores  here

what is needed to set up teams when the town website is not hosted by League Athletics (now known as SI Play) here

 

How To folder:

here

 

Remember when creating games:

Allow sufficient time - 1 hr 15 mins or 1 hr 30 mins to complete a full game, less for running time games

If the game is cancelled, use the STATUS = CANCEL and never delete a game

For girls senior division games, indicate Full checking game or not in the game type

 

Lightning (and bantam) games are "small sided" 8v8 games. Make sure your teams are sized appropriately, and that you declare enough teams at the age group to support the 8v8 format. Note that CONNY fees are reduced (50%) versus the teams for full field 10v10 play. Also you may wish to add new fields to accommodate 8v8 play (so you can schedule on the same full sized field 2 8v8 games at the same time) If so, contact  to add more fields.

AMERICA'S FIRST SPORT
If you haven't already seen it, the following link will take you to a terrific documentary video about the origins, history, growth, and future of both men's and women's lacrosse. It is well worth the fifty-five minutes it runs.

http://vimeo.com/64675548

The documentary does, however, omit one fascinating detail. James Naismith, credited with inventing basketball while teaching at Springfield College, was a Canadian and a lacrosse player. Thus, it's not that lacrosse is a lot like basketball ... it's that basketball is a lot like lacrosse.

Enjoy.

CONNY CONCUSSION RESOURCES

With a rise in reported concussions in youth sports over the past several years, the CONNY Board is working to educate Program Administrators, coaches, and parents on concussion awareness.

To that end, we have created a "Concussions Resources" page on this website (on the left hand menu). This page is designed to assist your team, town, school, or league in creating a concussion awareness program. The resources available will also help parents and coaches with diagnosis and action when a player gets hit in the head. 

Thank you for addressing this highly relevant topic with your program coaches and parents.
