We currently have 140 girls registered in our program. Please make sure you pay your fees on time to secure a spot on our teams. We will not take any girls past March 3rd unless we need them to fill a team. Right now the only teams that we will need anyone for would be the U8 and U10 teams. We currently can field two full U12 and two U14 teams with the number of girls that we have registered. We are having a little trouble getting the correct amount of money from some people. Please make sure you follow the below guidelines when sending the money to Ed. You are not registered until you receive a confirmation email stating you are paid in full. Only the girls that are paid in full will be placed on a team.
Winter fees: $100 for all age groups due by Jan. 14
Spring Fees must arrive in the mail to Ed Ramsey by March 3rd. Please do not drop money off to him on that day. His mailing address is: 123 Brighton Lane, Mars, PA 16046.

Free Mouth Guards from Dr. Kampas
Please call Dr. Kampas at 724-772-8888 to schedule a fitting for a free mouth guard. The fittings will be Jan. 5-12 then you can pick it up from Jan. 22-26.
Dick's Sporting Goods Shop Day
On January 27th we will have a shop day where you can take 20% off most items in the store not just lacrosse gear.
Dr. Kampas would like to offer, at no charge, our Custom Mouth Guard Program to the Mars Youth Girls Lacrosse. For the past three years, Kampas Orthodontics supplied this program to the Mars Youth Football and Lacrosse teams with great success. Unfortunately, we need to exclude the athletes who are under the care of an orthodontist other than Dr. Kampas, as we do not want to interfere with another orthodontist's treatment plan.
I have included a brochure from Tekfit, the custom mouth guard company. Athlete's specifications would entail a color and their number, if that is known. There is absolutely no cost to your organization or the parents/guardians. However if the player would lose or destroy the mouth guard and would like it remade, there would be fee of $150.00 to replace it.
We would have time set aside in our office for the athlete to come in for a digital scan of their mouth, this visit would take about 10-15 minutes. We scan the mouth with a high-speed 3D camera. The scan is then made into a 3D plastic model. The next visit, 7-10 days later, would be a 10 minute visit for Dr. Kampas to fit and adjust the mouth guard. The parents/guardians would be required to fill out a small health history form when presenting with the athlete, and sign a consent that would explain it is a mouth guard and it is not an appliance to straighten teeth.
Please call Dr. Kampas at 724-772-8888 to schedule your fitting. The dates for the fittings are January 5th and 12th from 9-4.

Uniform All girls must purchase the shorts from our spirit wear as part of their uniform. They must be worn at each game, no exceptions. Each player will be given a practice jersey and a game jersey. Both jerseys must be brought to each game.
Sportsmanship We want the girls to have fun and learn the game of lacrosse. We need everyone to have a good attitude on and off the field. Girls with poor sportsmanship or a bad attitude will be pulled out of the remainder of the game. The girls must be respectful of other players, teammates, coaches, parents, officials, and spectators.
Dedication The coaches expect the girls to attend all practices and games. The more the girls play together the better the team will be. Playing time can be altered due to lack of dedication and attendance.
Practices We hope to still hold practices on Monday and Friday evenings from 6-7:30 during our season. Our spring season runs from March through the middle of May. The practices will be at a local field. We hope to practice at the White House Field.
Games Our home games will likely still be on Saturday and Sunday mornings at the MAC. This is all dependent on the school district. Our away games could be any day of the week or weekend. We hope to have U8 have about 8 games, U10 about 10, etc.
Volunteers We need you!! Please let us know if you want to be more involved with our program.
Spirit Wear Sale/Backpack Sale We will have a spirit wear sale two times. The first one will start soon so that we can get the items in for Christmas. The backpacks will also be in for Christmas. (These are all optional.) Then we will have another sale before the season starts.
