Finishing Strong Towards the GOAL

Scorpions--

Player, Coaches, Fans... It's hard to believe our season is wrapping up.  High School State is in Bozeman this weekend, for our HS Lady Scorpions and former Scorpions on the Bandit and Bearcat teams.  This is the first year our HS girls will compete in the state tourney... congrats players and coaches on another pioneering year.  Finish strong!

While we still have a few weeks to go before the Youth State Tournament, know that many summer opportunities are out there--for lacrosse camps right here in Billings, for the 14U Summer Select teams' trip to Denver, and other lacrosse camps in the area.  Please respond to the appropriate points of contact for those opportunities.

With the miles and challenges of the season, know that you will have a formal opportunity to submit your feedback on the season and club operations through a survey we will send out in June.  We are always looking for ways to improve as an organization... it's always easy to identify the problems or issues.  As a board and club--we need your ~solutions and efforts~ to better ourselves in 2019. 

I share with you a few of my notes from April, as we launched the travel season after we had to cancel the Jamboree:

 

We continue to look for sponsors, you'll continue to see volunteer opportunities posted, there are summer camps and select team preparations underwaywe are already looking at BSL 2019 and beyond, and we'll all have to continue to adjust to the ongoing weather for practices and games.  Through the dynamics, enjoy the season and one another as lacrosse keeps us together for a few more months--our 2018 GOALs to support our club’s Mission Statement:

 

Grit--resolve, perseverance, mental and physical toughness--stick together and support each other as Scorpions--players, coaches, parents, fans

Outside the Box thinking--creatively tackle challenges as a team and club, communicate and cooperate for team success and individual growth

Ambassadorship--make positive impacts, as we are all ambassadors for our club, our teams, and our sport in our community, our state, and beyond

Love--genuine care for each other, value each individual's unique contributions and capabilities, treat each other with respect and dignity--love the game of lacrosse and the others we share it with

 

 

Enjoy every remaining moment we have as teams, families, extended families, and a Scorpions family in the few days that remain.

 

Goooo SCORPIONS!!!
