Head coaches from the respective colleges are enthusiastic about the game to be held in a neutral site at the heart of the lacrosse community in Connecticut.  “Penn is really excited to be a part of the IMLCA Game of The Week.  It provides great exposure for our program and it is a first-class event from a marketing and operations standpoint.  We recruit extensively from the NY/CT area, and College Properties Group does everything in a first-class manner.  We are excited to play Vermont in this event” said University of Pennsylvania Head Coach and IMLCA Vice President Mike Murphy.  His thoughts were echoed by Chris Feifs, Head Coach of Vermont, “We thank the IMLCA for hosting us for the second straight year with the game of the week.  We are thrilled for the opportunity to compete against the University of Pennsylvania in Wilton, CT; one of the strongest lacrosse communities in the country”.

 

About IMLCA: The IMLCA was formed in 2004 to serve the intercollegiate men’s lacrosse coaches community. To develop among intercollegiate coaches a deep sense of responsibility in teaching, promotion, and maintaining the growth of lacrosse in accordance with the highest ideals of fair play. To stimulate the development of quality leadership for lacrosse programs by recognizing professional contributions to the sport and keeping members informed of current coaching techniques and trends. To identify and pursue issues relevant to lacrosse coaches and to the sport of lacrosse; and to provide a forum for the discussion of matters of interest to members of the Association. To promote cooperative efforts with other professional organizations interested in the development of lacrosse and athletics in general.

 

Tickets for the game will range from $15 to $55 and are available for purchase at www.IMLCAGameoftheWeek.com  For sponsorship information contact Graham Leveston at

Checklist for town programs data entry

Checklist to remember

- the information CONNY needs from the town site webmasters and schedulers

For each program the key items are:

1) update the google sheet for team declarations - used to determine billing to the towns, coach or scheduler email and strength of team

2) Maintain town officers on the CONNY 2019 contact list

3) Make sure the town League Athletic sites are updated with coach and team information, linked to CONNY and passing a roster (or just the coaches data) - making sure emails are roster or public availability to ensure they are usable on the CONNY site - this can be updated as rosters and coaches change

4) US Lacrosse set up for the towns to at least include all coaches and board members - this will increasingly be used to monitor background status (free for coaches in CONNY towns) and courses taken

5) Set up in CONNY for games - only put in games (girls senior should identify checking or non-checking) - practices / jamborees / Yale tournament should only be entered on the town website - all games should be entered only on CONNY - home team enters games, away confirms

6) Only cancel games - never DELETE games as this creates issues of synchronization with the refereeing assignment sites.

7) connywebmaster@gmail.com has to create or change game sites, and assign scheduler roles to users

CONNY and town site users are not the same - but the same email address has to be used on both to support the correct scheduling and score update capabilities Lastly - check out the Documents / How to for information on all this (US lacrosse steps soon)

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.
