In addition to our current jerky fundraising effort we are also actively seeking repeat or new corporate sponsors that will help our program accomplish our "Mission" as noted below while also keep costs down for the participants. If anyone in our family would be interested in a corporate sponsorship or knows a firm that would please have them contact me at email@example.com or 406.672.2698.
Thanks and Go Scorpions!
To inspire participation for both boys and girls within our club boundaries in the game of lacrosse. The organization’s goal is to instill positive life lessons for all participants through teamwork, working towards common goals, personal development, competition and most of all having fun at various skill levels and age. We strive to provide the highest level of coaching instruction at each age level to ensure individual growth within the sport. Respect for the game of lacrosse, teammates, opponents, officials and coaches is the cornerstone of our teaching philosophy.

The green grass and outdoor lax is almost here! This will be a banner year for our club for a variety of reasons, but it all starts with YOU. A few notes since this next month, between now and the Billings Jamboree, is the busiest month for our club.
THANK YOU!We continue to welcome new players and families into our extended Scorpion family. I am continually encouraged by the volunteers and teamwork that continues to build momentum with each week… Notably, we have many new coaches this year who have stepped forward with no previous lacrosse experience. The only reason we are able to field a record number of teams this year (Girls High School, 14U, 12U, 10U, 8U; Boys 14U (2x), 12U (2x), 10U (2x), 8U) is because we have parents, Scorpion alumni, and former lax players who want to help grow our kids with lacrosse as the vehicle. This club is only as good, for the sake of our lacrosse-playing kids, as the people who step forward to volunteer and serve--and that's why as Scorpions we're on the path to AWESOMENESS! Remember our GOALs for 2018: Grit, Outside the Box thinking, Ambassadorship, Love.
NEW PLAYERS--STILL NEEDED: It'd be great to have a few more players on each of our teams, so continue spread the word and recruit new Scorpions. Note that the BSL Board voted to waive "late fees" for new players, and scholarships can still be made available.
KICKOFF EVENT: We hope you enjoy this early chance to develop lax camaraderie. There will be a lot of information to share at our Kickoff Potluck so hope you can make it: volunteer opportunities, practice and game schedules, concussion testing and sports medicine info, Summer Select Teams and camps, club finances and fundraising, and more. Please bring any unused Scorpion uniforms to the event so that we can "recycle" them within the club.
8U & 6U?: Practices and scrimmage will begin in April for our 8U boys and girls teams. BSL has also discussed starting a co-ed 6U 3v3/no contact/soft lacrosse ball league for those players too young for 8U. Let us know if you are interested in helping with this potential NEW 6U league.

Ideal for those with visual marketing knowledge and networking contacts.
Fundraising Committee - Josh H - 3 Members
Members of the fundraising committee help organize the BSL annual fundraiser. This includes introducing the fundraiser at our Season Kick Off event and coordinating money collection.

If you have any ideas or would like to volunteer to participate in the fundraising committee please let us know!

Volunteering for a committee satisfies the season credit requirement. If you are interested in volunteering or have questions, please contact JoLana Zimmerman:
