Get your team of four together and register for the DYLA 2017 JR Schoen 3v3 LaxJam! This great event will be held on Sunday May 7th.
Registration is now open on the DYLA website. There are 6 divisions-3/4 Boys, 3/4 Girls, 5/6 Boys, 5/6 Girls, 7/8 Boys, 7/8 Girls. Teams will consist of four players, with teams strongly encouraged to have two players from each grade (e.g. two 5th, two 6th), but teams must have at least one player from each grade to be eligible. Only a limited number of team slots are available, so get your team together and register now. Details are available on the JR Schoen LaxJam tab on the website, and we will also be posting teams looking for players and players looking for teams there.
All games will be played on the Darien stadium turf field. Teams will play in two hour windows. We will post the exact schedule as we get closer, but the tentative schedule is as follows:
7th & 8th Graders 9:00 am – 11:00 am
5th & 6th Grades 11:30 am – 1:30 pm
3rd & 4th Grades 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
The format will be short games (7-8 minutes) on small fields, 3v3 with one sub, no goalies, and small goals. Each game is an all-out sprint, a frenzied score-fest. It should be a fun, exciting event and parents we promise it will burn off plenty of excess energy. Prizes will be awarded, and proceeds will go toward the JR Schoen Memorial. Registration will only be available through the online registration system on the DYLA website, and one player from each team should register (and pay for) the entire team. Make sure to come up with a good name and team "uniform"--the referees definitely award extra points for style and creativity!
While we encourage players to form their own teams, if players are having difficulty finding a team (or if teams need another player), please e-mail me at email@example.com we will keep a running list to match players and teams. These will be posted on the website on the JR Schoen LaxJam tab, so check there first if you are looking for a player or a team.
Parents--we also need volunteers to help with the event. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are willing to help during one of the sessions.
