Parents and players-
Parent/Player Face-Off Meeting – December 1, 6pm
Please join us for the annual parent meeting on Thursday, December 1st at 6pm in the Monarch auditorium. This is our one and only meeting so please make sure to attend.
Equipment Drive – Give Back!
We will be holding an equipment drive at the Face-Off meeting, so lets clean house and give back! The gear will benefit Elk Soldier Lacrosse and will be sent to an indigenous lacrosse program in Nebraska. Please donate any equipment you can and give back to less fortunate players of the greatest game. Elk Soldier Lacrosse is especially in need of sticks and helmets, but all gear is appreciated. We need some volunteer help for this event; please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or text 303-995-9700.
Start Fundraising Now for Team Expenses
The holiday season is just around the corner and many families spend more in the next two months than any other time of the year. Keep in mind that your fundraising and Coyote Credit can grow by leaps and bounds this holiday season. Make sure you are using your grocery store cards for groceries and gas. And make sure you have Scrip for that Christmas shopping. Scrip has everything from Amazon gift cards to Starbucks cards which make excellent gifts. Scrip is probably the most under-utilized method of fundraising, but it can have the greatest compound effect during this time of year.
Incoming players and parents to Coyote Lacrosse should use this opportunity to get started on fundraising. Building Coyote Credit helps purchase equipment, team store items as well as covering travel expenses.
We look forward to seeing you on Dec 1st.
Last night was a blast! If you did not attend ask a player that did. We flat out got AFTER it! We need your participation, it is not too late. Also, if you are in football and can only attend the last two weeks we can make this work as well. Come join in and work hard with your team. Bigger, stronger, faster!! See you Thursday.
We had some great fall ball outside, now it is time to get bigger, stronger, and faster. Coach LaHoda and I are pumped for these eight sessions. This is the key for out growth as a team and program. Let’s pack the weight room and work hard as a team. This is the ultimate team building activity. If any player is having any FINANCIAL ISSUES, contact Coach Auday and he will make sure you are able to participate. This will be a non issue. Come join us for the month long blueprint for off season training.

Rattlers Fitness Academy: High School Sessions
Rattlers Fitness Academy High School Sessions are for 9th-12th grade lacrosse players looking to take their game to the next level. Coach LaHoda and the Rattlers are thrilled to partner with Monarch Head Lacrosse Coach, David Auday to provide players with unique and progressive workouts that have helped countless youth and high school players exponentially improve their game/athleticism and prepare them for the spring season.
Weight Training is an essential component to high school lacrosse and helps players become explosive, fast, confident, and strong. These sessions will include lacrosse specific workouts that push players to the limit and incorporate strength and speed/agility training.. It is our goal to give players a relentless work ethic that will aid them in athletics and all aspects of life. These sessions will cater to players with beginner to advanced weight training experiences. These sessions are not limited to Monarch lacrosse players and we encourage high school players from all surrounding schools to attend these sessions.
All players will be given workouts to continue their off-season strength and conditioning for the remaining months before the spring season begins.

We need to have a big week. We are going to continue to work with position coaches and team concepts. We need to increase our attendance to break the 70 mark.
Remember: open throw has NOTHING to do with Saturday Games. We need all YOTES to report and get better. We are upset we did not get enough for three teams for the fall DLC League, this is unfortunate and we were close. However, lets remember this has NO bearing on spring regular season placement. Again, open throw is not dedicated to Saturdays. It will be for everyone and reps in open throw will be the same for all players. On a huge note we want to congratulate two special players for their college commits. We are so proud of them and send out HUGE KUDOS.
