Boulder Valley Lacrosse establishes scholarship program for high school seniors in memory of Stephen C. Muir
BOULDER, Colo., May 3, 2016— The Boulder Valley Lacrosse Association (BVL), one of the largest youth lacrosse programs in Colorado, has announced the formation of The Boulder Valley Lacrosse Scholarship in memory of former Boulder resident and lifelong lacrosse player and ambassador, Stephen C. Muir.
The BVL Scholarship was established to honor the service, commitment and value that young adults have given to the local lacrosse community. BVL will award $2,000 in scholarships that may be used at any accredited institution of learning, including schools with 4-year, 2-year, trade or vocational degree programs.
The scholarships are available to all currently enrolled high school seniors, male or female, who have “given back” to the game of lacrosse in ways that have helped grow the sport or that have enhanced the playing experience for others. Applicants’ contributions to the lacrosse community could be as players, coaches, referees, or through a demonstrated ability to simply bring people together for the love of the sport.
“A primary goal of the BVL Scholarship is to celebrate and honor the character, integrity, and love for the sport of lacrosse that Steve Muir exhibited throughout his life,” said BVL President JP O’Brien. “In addition to his exceptional skill and dominance as a high school All-American and NCAA Division I national champion, Steve embodied all that is good about competitive sports. He made all of his teammates better by infusing an entire team with a joy of playing the game. Steve was known for laughing, dancing, and bouncing around on the sidelines, helping remind his teammates of how much fun it is to play lacrosse. We are thrilled to announce these scholarships in his honor.”
The selection committee will review each application with a combination of factors in mind, including merit, leadership and overall impact on the lacrosse community. All applications must be submitted no later than May 18, 2016. Scholarship winners will be notified no later than May 30, 2016.
Eligible candidates must complete the online application form attached to this announcement (see below).
A letter of recommendation from a coach, a player, or other lacrosse community member is also required. Letters should be emailed to BVL Executive Director Andrew Davies, at email@example.com.
Boulder Valley Lacrosse is a community based, nonprofit (501c3) organization dedicated to spreading the great sport of lacrosse throughout Northern Colorado. BVL organizes boys competitive travel teams for the primary lacrosse season in spring, as well as travel teams, camps and clinics in the fall, winter, and summer. www.boulderlacrosse.org

Varsity, JV and C Teams,
Today, Friday 4/29, All games have been cancelled; but practice is on!
See you at 5pm.
Game is cancelled today. May be rescheduled for Thursday.
Coyote Lacrosse Families,
We thank you for your patience as we rearrange schedules in an attempt to get the games in for the JV, C and Varsity this season. Some times, as you have seen, the schedule is still changing on game day.
Our advice is to keep checking the team website, www.monarchlacrosse.org, and we also send team emails when we receive the information. Also, the coaches will be updating the players at practice.
With that said, I would take a look at the calendar and compare it to what you have currently, just to be on the safe side. Times and locations may have changed.
Again, on behalf of BVSD we are sorry to announce we will not have a bus for the Prarie View game this Wednesday. Coach Auday is as disappointed as anyone as he views taking the bus as a team bonding experience. The JV and C games are being rescheduled due to this as well.
Instead of moving the Varsity we are asking to transport the way we did against Dakota Ridge. Game time will be 5:00 or 7:00 pm at Prarie View, we will let you know ASAP.
