You Should be Proud!
Your daughter just made a very, very strong lacrosse program and is going to get a lot better this spring and summer if she commits and works hard. She is a talented and athletic young woman and has a very bright future. Now that she has made it I want to remind returning parents and inform new parents of how we see your roles ideally in Madlax Girls All-Stars.
Stay Positive and Supportive!
We know it's an exciting time to watch your girls play on game day and it can be frustrating at times, trust me, we know. All coaches are trained, experienced and understand the game at a high level having played and/or coached at the collegiate level. We have specific training plan and goals within each team. We simply ask that you are always trusting and supportive of the coaches. If you have an issue with a coach please email the directors but never address a coach right after a game or directly.
By being supportive of Madlax and the coaches and understanding and trusting of our process you're helping the girls develop their passion for the game of lacrosse. You are also making it such a more fun environment for them to play in. Although Madlax plays the best players to win in league games and playing time is never guaranteed, we are not a win at all cost club. In fact, it is more important that we are developing the girls skills and overall understanding of the lacrosse while acting in line with our C.A.S.E. initiative. Ideally we are enabling the girls to have fun while they work hard to improve. There is a greater chance of this happening for your daughters if you stay positive and supportive!
Don't talk to your daughter or coach from the sideline.
When the parents scream 'SHOOT!' or 'PASS!' or "Just RUN!" it is distracting and confusing for them. Often times it is just plain wrong and frustrating for coaches. It's hard not to get caught up in it for players this young. It is VERY hard. We get that. We know we even have some parents who have played college lacrosse but even those parents must refrain from coaching and speaking to your daughters. Talk with your daughters all you want after the game or before but please...NOTHING during the game. Let her learn and enjoy the experience on her own. Also please never stand on the bench sideline or on the endline if possible. We would also strongly encourage you that when you do speak with your daughter about lacrosse that it is positive and about her effort and attitude more than about plays or mistakes she made on the field. You will burn her out if that is all she hears and she just wont want to play anymore for risk of being scolded in the car ride home. Try to celebrate assists more than goals, ground balls more than hits and being coachable and a good teammate more than anything else.
We understand you are making a sacrifice and taking a lot of time and spending a lot of money in having your daughters play Madlax. We take this fact seriously and therefore try to maximize our time with them. The players who commit and attend the most will have the greatest experiences. Thank you for bringing them to every practice and game and taking on these simple roles as a Madlax parent. Please communicate early and often if you have to miss something or be late for academic or personal reasons. We look forward to a fun and very successful season coaching your girls!
ENJOY the Season!
Play with Passion,
Cabell Maddux & Aubrey Whittier
