I am proud to announce that the Lumberjacks will be making a return in Summer 2020. I would like to thank everybody who was a part of the original team. Thank you for all of your support and passion for the program and sport. With all of this enthusiasm and based on feedback we got, we will be expanding to two teams. The two teams will be split similarly to Varsity and Junior Varsity. However, THERE WILL BE NO CUTS. Anyone who wants to play for the Lumberjacks will play. Our mission will remain the same. Our mission being to allow as many Grant players the chance to play competitive lacrosse for an affordable price. As always if a scholarship, payment plan, or special accommodation is needed please reach out to me personally and we will find a way to resolve it. I want to make sure that any player who wants to play will be given the opportunity.
Some changes to the program will consist of allowing players from other local programs into the Lumberjacks. As Grant is absorbing players from Cleveland and Franklin, the Lumberjacks will also absorb these players. The team will still consist of a majority of Grant players. Both teams will practice together continuing the theme of community within the Grant Lacrosse community. Even if the teams will be separated during games, everyone will be united in their pursuit of lacrosse excellence. The reason the teams won't be a strict A/B split is because the B team will play in divisions that don't allow upperclassmen. Even though there won't be a tryout, we will use the first practice to split up the teams.
The three tournaments we will play in this summer are the Valhalla Summer Invasion (Vancouver, WA), South Sound Summer Slam (Tacoma, WA), and the Oregon Classic (Bend, OR). The teams will also have 6 hour and a half practices on weekends located at Delta Park.
The cost for the entire summer will be $650 per player, which include 3 tournaments, 6 practices, jerseys, shorts, shooting shirts as well as access to an excellent coaching staff and of course a summer of fun lacrosse.
Schedule information to follow as I am still waiting on tournament details and coaches schedules. Please contact me if you have any questions
Thanks and GO Lumberjack!
