Team Information 2020
Information from the National Federation of HS Sports regarding return to play guidance during COVID-19.
NFHS Covid-19 Guidance
Well, this is certainly not how anyone would have predicted the season to end. While it is certainly less than ideal, there are some bright spots:
Team Pictures were shipped to my house. I do not have everyone's address, which makes it hard to deliver both JV and Varsity team pictures. Please text me: 925-997-6413 as I can leave them on my front porch.
Shutterfly has all the pictures from the games loaded onto the share site. Thank you Barb for uploading them. To access the pictures, go to the Shutterfly Share site app on your phone.
Seniors: this is so not how we want to celebrate your hard work in lacrosse. We love you tons. Look for a surprise coming in the next week or two.
Uniforms: Please drop off your uniform in the baggie that was provided (or something similar) when you pick up your pictures. The uniforms are brand new; we cannot afford to lose any uniforms.
Update Friday 3/13: As you have all seen already from the email from Coach Jess, under the direction of the EBAL officials, the lacrosse season is on hold until further notice. Click here for the complete letter. Be optimistic that the season will continue. Watch out for your elderly neighbors, maybe go to the grocery store for them, and, of course, wash your hands. AND this is just in: the official SRVUSD is closed until April 13th.
As of Wednesday 3/11:
The home game vs Dublin HS is on! I am sure you read the email from the SRVUSD: No spectators. If you are working the game: stats, scorer and scoreboard-- you are welcome to be there: Salles, Mark, Howe, and King (scoreboard). If you can not be there, let me know asap. The Salles family worked Granite Bay (thank you!) so if someone who is slotted to work Saturday wants to step in, let me know. The "No Spectators" is in effect, as of today, until March 21st and includes carpool drivers. Carpool drivers unite~ we can find something fun to do while the girls play.
Here is the information from the school district in case you missed it.

Schedule & Field Change to FIELD 1 (Turf Field)

Game 2: 8:30 vs Oakridge
Game 3: 9:30 vs St. Francis (SF)
Plan to arrive at Davis HS for 7:00 am. Remind your athletes to wear layers.
Team Pictures are 2/28 @ 3:30 at Oak Hill Park. Your daughter should receive the envelop from her coach for Yary Photography. No pictures are taken without the completed envelop. I may have a few extra there. Meet at the bridges in the park wearing your team uniform.
During the season, practices will be at the MV turf on Monday 7:00-9:00 pm and every other day (Tuesday-Friday) 5:00-7:00 pm except on game days. Generally, games for JV are at 5:30pm and varsity are at 7pm (although there are some exceptions). The game schedule for the season is posted on Max Preps.
If soccer goes to the NCS championship game, they are potentially in season until the end of February, so our practice times for most of February are at unusual times and locations. Once soccer ends, all practice times will be back to normal. Please ask your athlete to confirm practice locations with the team for Week 3.
The schedule for late January & February is listed below.
Tryouts are just around the corner and here are the dates:
Jan 28: 5-7 Sycamore 2
Jan 29: 5-6:50 Sycamore
Jan 30: 5-6:50 Sycamore
Jan 31: 3:30-5:30 Diablo Vista Middle School Turf (practice)
Feb 1: 5-7 Sycamore 3 (practice)
*We recognize that it is challenging to get from MV to Diablo Vista by 3:30, get there as soon as possible so that we can set up and get started.*
Please make sure you have submitted your Athletic Clearance Forms to the Athletic Office before tryouts.
Tryouts are less than one week away! As a reminder, the first day of tryouts are Tuesday February 7th at Sycamore Valley Soccer Field 3 from 5-7pm. See below for a full schedule for the first month of tryouts and practice.
Plan to arrive around ten minutes early to tryouts to check-in and get your reversible pinny. Don't forget to bring your stick, mouth guard, eye guard, cleats, tennis shoes, and water.
Tryouts will happen rain or shine. The only case that we will cancel is if there is lightning. Otherwise, we will still hold tryouts. We will post any cancellations to this website.
We can't wait for season! GO MUSTANGS!
Tryouts are right around the corner. We are looking forward to seeing everybody out on the field!! In order to tryout, your sports paperwork must be completed and turned into Melissa French in the office by 1/20/2017. Melissa will give the coaches a list of all players cleared to tryout.
Each athlete is given at least three days to tryout. Winter athletes are given three days once their winter sport is over. If you are a winter sport athlete trying out for women’s lacrosse, please e-mail Coach Megan (firstname.lastname@example.org) by January 20th and indicate your name, winter sport, and date that your winter sport ends. Plan to attend tryouts as soon as your winter sport is completed.
Every athlete trying out for women’s lacrosse will be evaluated based on the criteria listed below:
We also expect each athlete to have a high commitment level to the team.
During season, practices will be at the MV turf 5:30-7:30pm M-F except on game days. Generally, games for JV are at 5:30pm and varsity are at 7pm. The game schedule for the season is posted on Max Preps.
Soccer is potentially in season if they win in NCS until 2/25/2017 (overlapping with our season by a few weeks), so our practice times for most of February are at unusual times and locations. Once we are into March, all practice times will be back to normal.
The schedule for February is listed below. Again, starting in March we will be back to our normal practice times and locations.
