Pre-Season Preview

We are officially less then one month away from pre-season! With over thirty players in PE class, record numbers at summer camp, and our inaugural summer and fall league Sailor Girl teams playing competitively, this season promises to be one of the best NHHS Girls’ Lacrosse has seen.

Here are a few things to keep in mind:

Player Meeting
There will be a mandatory player meeting during the week of November 4, with time and place to be announced. Keep your ears open during announcements and check your email for Booster updates and teamer notifications. At this meeting, we will go over the pre-season schedule and answer any questions.

If you are unable to make this meeting, you must see Coach Armstrong individually.

Our first day on the field will be Tuesday, November 12. We will meet from 2:30-4:30 every weekday that school is in session. We will not have practice over Thanksgiving (11/26 to 12/1) or over Winter Recess (12/20 to 1/5).

Boot Camp
The first two weeks of practice will be dedicated to fitness training. You will be working out for nearly two hours each day, and you must be prepared for core exercises, agility training, strength training, speed training and sprinting, distance running, plyometric exercise, and lower-body conditioning.

Our fitness expert, Chris Chinn, recommends that you prepare over the next month:

  • Do regular distance running: Dynamic warm-up for 10-15 minutes, run with heart rate up for 30 minutes, cool down and stretch for 10-15 minutes.
  • Strengthen your legs: Jumping, squatting, stadium steps, sprinting, and various weight/machine exercises can help with your lower body conditioning.
  • Core training: There are a variety of core exercises and routines you can find online, and Coach Armstrong can provide you with a few if you would like. Alternatively, you can do Pilates.
  • Flexibility training: You must stretch warm muscles every day—typically after your workout. Yoga works, too.

Start easy and build yourself up over the course of the next four weeks, and check with your doctor if you have any conditions that might lead to injury. If you feel pain, dizziness, or unusual discomfort, speak with your parents immediately and seek medical attention if necessary.

If you are playing a fall sport, you are probably ready to go for boot camp. But be honest with yourself about your fitness level; if you need to do any extra work, get out and get it done.

We look forward to seeing you on the field!


Fall Lacrosse League

The Sailors are looking to field a team for the OC Fall Lacrosse League. Here is the information:

Games will be played at Newport Ridge Park on October 12, October 19th, November 9th, November 16th and November 23rd. The end-of-season event will be LAXAVIL, a Lacrosse/Carnival, held at Rancho Santa Margarita Intermediate School on December 7th.

Cost will be about $80-100, depending upon the number of players on the roster. You may split the season with another player if you cannot make all of the games (about $20 per week).

• No refunds for days lost due to inclement weather.
• This is completely voluntary and independent of NHHS Physical Education and the NHHS Girls Lacrosse Team.

IMPORTANT: Space in the league is filling up fast, and we must register soon. Please talk to your parents and let Coach Armstrong know if you are interested in playing as soon as possible. Thank you.


Summer League Wrap Up

Sailor Girls Summer League Players and Parents,

It was great to see you on the field this summer! You have all been a part of the Sailors’ inaugural summer league team. Because of dedicated individuals like you, who are willing to put in the extra work together on summer Saturdays, our entire program will grow stronger and more competitive.

We hope you are squeezing the most out of your last days of the summer. As you prepare for the fall, plan to take advantage of every opportunity to pick up your stick and get on the field:

LACROSSE PE: The class will be during 8th period, beginning in the first week of school. Coach Armstrong has provided a list of eligible players to the counseling office. You just need to request that your counselor place you in 8th period Lacrosse PE.

FALL LEAGUE: We will enter at least one team into the OC fall league. Games will be played October 12, October 19th, November 9th, November 16th and November 23rd. Mark your calendars now! More information will follow

PRE-SEASON NOVEMBER 12: We are scheduled to begin pre-season on November 12. We will meet on most days that school is in session.

Note: In-season school sports take precedence over off-season play.

Also, two outstanding coaches will be hosting a series of drop-in clinics. Here is the information:

$10 NIGHTS :: September 16-20
ABOUT :: Crista + LC will be hosting 2 sessions per evening on the week of 9/16 open to all players. We will be holding FITNESS, STICKWORK, RECRUITING, + PICK-UP sessions.
WHO :: Open to ALL players in Orange County + surrounding areas.
COST :: $10 per night (pay on site)
LOCATION:: TBA (OC field locations)

We will continue to send you updates with information about clinics, clubs, and tournaments. If you ever hear about a good chance to play, forward it to me and I’ll get it out to everyone.

Finally, if you are a parent/guardian who would like to get involved on the Booster Board, talk to me or the Booster Board president, Shannon McCormack. We are already developing plans to expand the program for 2013-14, and we’d love for you to join us!
