Congrats to GFLA Champions and Coaches of the Year!
Dear Parents and Players,
It is hard to believe but another successful Spring season is in the books. Nearly 500 boys and girls on 25 Great Falls teams and clinics held nearly 1000 practices and games since our snowy start in January. Thank you to all of our volunteer coaches and parents who volunteered behind the scenes to get our boys and girls playing.
Congratulations to Boys U11B (Coaches Denny Sisson and Mark Spoto) and Girls 7/8A (Coaches Jeff Grimson, Mary Smith, Jacquie Henry and Gene Canfield) for winning the championships in their divisions. Well done to our boys, girls and coaches!
Also congratulations to numerous other teams who made it all the way to the championship games, including Boys High School (Coaches Joe DiOrio and Gene Canfield), Boys U11A (Coach Jack Redmond), and Girls 5/6B (Coaches Meredith Broome and Jeff Amspaugh).
Finally, it is with great pleasure that we announce this year’s Bill Borland Coach of the Year Award. We received a wealth of feedback from the parents about many GFLA coaches, which was very heartening to receive. This year’s recipients are Adam Jackson (Boys U7-1) and Casey Golden (Girls 3/4 B). Both of these coaches exemplify the positive coaching principles that we try to follow. Congratulations Adam and Casey!
GFLA Booster Card Fundraiser
Save money at your favorite places (Great Falls Creamery, Old Brogue, Brx, Triny's, Deli Italiano, Dominos, Pio Pio Pollo, Mookies and MORE!!) while raising money for Great Falls Lacrosse & Field Hockey!!!
Our fundraiser this year is a Great Falls Lacrosse & Field Hockey Booster Card. Many of our favorite local merchants are offering discounts with this card making it a win/win/win - it gives back to the retail community that supports GFLA (giving them more business), the purchaser (discounted pricing for a full year) and helps GFLA pay for that fancy Nike 4 turf field we get to use!
Here is the scoop......
Each player is responsible for selling just 2 cards ($20 each). If an individual is unable to purchase or sell his or her cards the team will help out and sell for them. Teams can opt to sell the cards together in neighborhoods, at Safeway, at Nike, or have their parents, grandparents, friends etc. purchase them.
Each team will have a Booster Card Point Person who will be responsible for the cards and money collected. Checks payable to GFLA are best.
If we meet our goal, we will raise $15,000.00 for our Nike 4 Turf Fund!!!!
AND....if that were not enough......
First Team to Sell 100%of their cards - determined by time money envelope returned to Jacquie Henry (Girls) or Erin Lobato (Boys) earns a Pizza Party on the sidelines......Enjoy Pizza and drinks after a practice of your choice. (please note, no food on the turf!)
Second Team to Sell 100%-determined by time money envelope returned to Jacquie Henry (Girls) or Erin Lobato (Boys) earns a Popsicle Party!! - popsicles delivered to your team after a game or practice of your choice. (please note, no food on the turf!)
