The 2010 edition of the Overlake Outdoor Team Fall League starts September 18th and runs every Saturday through November 13th on the Overlake School turf field.

All games start at either 11:00 AM, Noon or 1:00 PM and will be 12 minute running clock quarters. Teams previously committed to the Fall Ball season include Skyline, Issaquah, Northshore, Lake Washington, Mukilteo, Lynnwood, Woodinville, Eastside Catholic, Snohomish and Eastlake. Registration for the Skyline Fall League team is on the Skyline website and fees are $75 per player. You will need to have a current Lystedt concussion form on file with SLC and a valid US Lacrosse membership.

Skyline laxers grades 9, 10, and 11 are eligible along with rising Skyline bound freshmen (graduating 8th grade in the '09/'10 school year). Sign-up priority is given to current Sophmores - Seniors then incoming Freshmen will be added as space allows. There are no practices and unlike the highly flexible Summer Ball schedule which anticipates some vacation & camp conflicts, players who commit should plan on participating each Saturday.

We've had an amazing season! In our first year in Washington, we won our division and earned the #1 seed in the NLL playoffs.

As players, we feed off of the energy you've been giving us all year by your awesome support at Comcast Arena. And this Saturday, our game comes to KEY ARENA in Seattle for the first-ever professional lacrosse game at The Key!

We thank you for your support and hospitality, and we really appreciate that we have had the chance to work along side the coaches to help build lacrosse in the greater Issaquah area this season.

Skyline Lacrosse 2010 Season Opens Tonight!! Be There!!!

Tonight Skyline Lacrosse kicks off its 2010 season with its first league games, against Northshore. JV game starts at 6:15; varsity at 8:00; both games are in the stadium at Skyline.

Northshore is an important early matchup for the Spartans. Picked to finish 5th in Division I by West Side Lax (
Preview), Northshore is led by brothers Taylor Wisman and Foster Wisman, both picked as pre-season all-state candidates (http:// Taylor (no.11) is a do-everything senior middie who finished in the top four in goals (second), points (fourth) and ground balls (third) in the division last year. Foster (no. 22) is also a middie, and as a sophomore last year had 42 points and 27 ground balls while missing two games to injury. Senior attackman Jake Dosett (no. 19) is another scoring threat, with 35 points last year. Coach Steve Wisman was the 2008 coach of the year, when Northshore won the Division II title. In 2009, Northshore finished sixth in their first year in Divison I, just ahead of the seventh place Spartans. In their only matchup, Northshore defeated Skyline 15-7. Northshore did have some significant graduation losses and several players also moved to the new Woodinville Division II program which started up this year.

Come cheer the Spartans on to victory tonight! Rain or shine!

Everett Hearld Online Poll - WA LAC WIAA Sactioned? Vote!

The Everett Hearld's online site HearldNet is conducting an online poll and the topic is dear to Washington laxer's hearts: Should the WIAA add Lacrosse as a Sanctioned Sport?

Let's get out the Lacrosse community and make our voices heard ! Click here to vote in the HearldNet Readers Poll.Lacrosse proponents have repeatedly brought WIAA sanctioning to a vote only to have the fastest growing sport in Washington (and America) shown the door. This year their are two Lacrosse proposals before the WIAA Representative Assembly. One to add Lacrosse for girls at the middle school and high school level, and a second to add Lacrosse for boys at these same levels. The WIAA Assembly will vote on these proposals when they meet on April 23.

Vote in the HearldNet Poll and help create a data exclamation point!

If you would like to learn more about Lacrosse and the WIAA, take a look at the excellent piece created by the Washington High School Boys Lacrosse Association: Why Isn't Boy's Lacrosse a WIAA Sanctioned Sport?

Coach K - New Year Message

Hello Skyline Lacrosse Players,

I trust everyone had a pleasant holiday break and are now ready to get to work!

Captains will soon be reaching out to you with practice schedules and additional conditioning opportunities and I trust that you will all realize the importance of attending these sessions. I can tell you that come March I will expect everyone to have done the stick and skill work necessary to be ready for the season. I will not be using practice time on skill progression as that is the responsibilty of individual players. We will be introducing new systems both offensively and defensively and will not slow down because some players did not approach the season with the same level of commitment as others. Everyone within this program should be well-versed on wall ball drills and techniques and can look at various web-sites to learn more interesting wall ball drills....
( comes to mind as a good resource)

Please make sure you are working on your stick continually over the next couple of months and anyone who was on varsity last year should probably have 2 heads that they can reliably catch and pass with.
I'm very excited for the start of Captains practices and trust that you are too.

See you on the field,

Coach K
