On behalf of all 5 lacrosse board members and coaches we would like to thank everyone who helped to make this 2017 season a success. Good luck to our 8th graders who are moving up to become Dayton High School LAX players. 9 of our current 8th graders were from our original 25 in 2013. Here is a picture from our picnic with some of our 8th graders sporting their new look by wearing their EPIC bucket hats. Starting today, bucket hats are on sale via springfieldlaxnj.com ($28) See bucket hat button on the right side on the home page. The front has the block S and the back says Springfield LAX.
Expect an email over the next week from your child's coach with information on equipment collection.
What is collected?
(Girls) Full game uniform top and bottom
(Boys) Game Jersey tops (Orange)
(Boys) Game Shorts (Orange)
Club Helmets (Summer club players should own their own helmets)
Practice reversibles from 8th graders (unless you plan to wear them around town, we would like them back to continue to cut costs)
Practice reversibles from any players who will not be back next year....
We ask that you help sell tickets for the disney hotel raffle. It was a generous donation and we want to take advantage of how much we can make towards Dayton LAX. We had planned to pull the ticket the day of the picnic but due to the May 13th rain out and the cancellation of the Dayton LAX game on May 6th we have not sold what we projected. We ask parents to reach out to family and friends to help support our club. The tickets are $5 each and if you win you get a free hotel stay at a Disney resort.
If you need tickets please reach out to your coach
2nd/3rd grade parents please reach out to Chris Stebbings
4th grade parents please reach out to Phil
5th/6th Rob Spinner
7th Jeff K
8th Mike Dzikowski
This should be a nice money maker for the club if we reach out to family and friends. The coaches will keep a list of how many tickets they need and will make arrangements to give them to you sometime this week. Reminder that we need to raise all the funds for next years Dayton LAX team.
All Lax parents please read..... Something positive!!

My name is Josh Smilow and I am a local general dentist who works with adults and children in my practice on Mountain Ave, Smilow Family Dentistry. I have been working in town for about two years, and have been living here with my wife and children for 9 years. As an avid sports fan, I wanted to find a way to help support our local sports teams. I want to offer the members of the Springfield Lacrosse teams the opportunity to receive a free mouth guard from my office. I value the safety of our children above all, and would love the opportunity to assist our youth with receiving custom molded sports mouth guards to be used during practices and games. It's a quick process!! Call the office, make an appointment to have the mold done. Within a week, your child will have a custom fit mouth guard. No fee at all just Dr. Smilow's way of helping the community and our sports teams.
Moms and dads showed up on Friday ready to play, ready to argue, and ready to relive the dream. The lacrosse club of Springfield raised approximately $4000 from this event. A big thanks to all who participated. We all know it's a fun evening and it brings out the competitive nature in so many of us. With this in mind, thank goodness our children were not there to witness that mess. Fun mess of course!!! We hope you will all join us next year for our 4th annual dodgeball fundraiser date and time TBD!!
Lastly, we have raised $17,000 for our Dayton Lacrosse team. We are still looking for donations. We need $25,000 to reach the budget that has been created by Mr. Davino and Lance Jacobs. With the year ending and tax season getting closer, now may be a great time to make a donation and increase your deduction on your 2016 taxes. The LCOS is a 501C3 corporation/charity. Donations can be made on on the home screen via credit card.
Dr. Josh Smilow is offering free molded mouth guards for all LAX players. Please make your appointment if interested.
