Games and practices for all Frisco Fury teams are now canceled through Friday, April 3rd.
The Board is extending the date so that GLCOF is consistent with Frisco ISD. The school district late today announced distance learning will continue through at least April 3rd in the effort to decrease the spread of COVID-19.
Thank you for understanding this date could continue to extend out if UIL, Frisco ISD, the City of Frisco or our governing leagues, TGHSLL and TGYLL, make the call to do so or to cancel the remainder of the season. We are hopeful the Fury teams still get to play again this spring!
Youth Program Director, Coach Beth King is providing lax challenges this week. Encourage your daughter to participate. Check your email for the Fury Beastmode Challenge each day. The whole family can join in on the challenge to make it more fun.
For our high school girls, don’t forget the assignment Coach Kailah sent to you.
We want each of you to stay safe and well – physically and mentally. If you are a player missing your teammates and coaches, send a text, call or email to let them know you’re thinking of them. Parents missing your fellow lax moms and lax dads, check in and say ‘hello’.
When you give a girl a pair of cleats, you are giving her far more than a new pair of shoes. You are giving her new friends and new challenges and so many lessons and some of her best memories.
When you give a girl a pair of cleats, you are giving her a team. You are giving her a group of girls that she might not have ever talked to if it wasn't for these common cleats. A group of girls who will teach her how to be a teammate. A group of girls who will laugh with her and yell at her and train with her and win with her and lose with her. With a pair of cleats comes a group of mismatched people with a common goal who are learning from each other and working together.
When you give a girl a pair of cleats, you are giving her a coach. This coach is going to play an instrumental role in her love or hate for the sport. This coach will work her hard. This coach will train her and teach her and encourage her and yell at her and make her cry and hug her and cheer her on. This coach wants to see her succeed. This coach knows what these cleats mean, what this sport means. And this coach will be someone that she will watch. She will watch the way that her coach talks to her and talks to her teammates and talks to the other team and she will see her coach's responses to games that are won and games that are lost. This pair of cleats comes with a role model, for better or for worse.
When you give a girl a pair of cleats, you are giving her team practices. You are giving her practice that will instill discipline and dedication and commitment. You are teaching her that she is on a team and she is expected to put in time. You are teaching her that her presence is important and that people are relying on her. You are teaching her how to balance her time, because, now, she has school and practice and games and teammates and friends and family. And for the first time in her life, she has to establish priorities.
With this practice time comes some of the hardest conditioning and training. With this practice time comes some of her favorite memories as she bonds with her teammates and laughs with them and works hard with them. This pair of cleats comes with quite the time commitment.
When you give a girl a pair of cleats, you are giving her game days. You are giving her bus rides and warm-up playlists and team matching hair ribbons and orange slices at half-time and constantly looking for your water bottle on the sidelines. You are giving her a competitiveness that can only come out on the field. You are giving her the cheers from the sidelines and the screams of her coach and the exhaustion in her legs at the end of the game. You are giving her handshakes with opponents and a winning attitude even when she loses. With a pair of cleats comes pasta dinners and game days. These will become her favorite days.
When you give a girl a pair of cleats, you are giving her a challenge. She is going to grow and learn, and she's going to want to quit at times, but she is going to look down at her feet and remember why she's doing this. She's going to remember her teammates and her coaches and the amount of time she's poured into this sport, and she's going to realize that it's worth it. She's going to be covered in bruises and her socks are going to stink, and she's always going to be looking for a sock or needing a hair elastic. She's going to be tired, and she's going to get hurt.
But those cleats are going to establish lessons that she's going to remember for the rest of her life, friends that she is going to learn to love, and discipline that she is going to be thankful for. If you're the girl with the cleats, soak it in. Love the long practices and the exhaustion and the sound of the whistle that starts the game. If you're the girl without the cleats, go get some. Try something new. Take the risk. Sign up for the team, the musical, the club. You will regret it if you don't. Even if you fail, few things can teach you the lessons that those cleats will.
Our Girls Lacrosse Club of Frisco follows the following weather policy:
If the weather dips into the 30's or is over 103, there is a high probability of cancellation. We follow the weather closely and will assess all other weather conditions to determine if practice is beneficial. The safety, health & moral of our players and coaches will all be taken into consideration.
In the event of rain or wet fields, the City of Frisco makes this call if the fields are open or not. The call from the City is made about 3 pm and we will turn around the notification as quickly as possible on social media and via email.
We will not be on the field at all if there is lightening in the area. All Frisco fields are equipped with lightening detectors that also have an all clear signal (20 minutes after the last detection).
On occassion we make the wrong call - we are human. The coaches try to practice if we can - sometimes that means a storm could roll in during a practice - if the weather is questionable we do appreicate parents sticking around and being available in the parking lot should we need to clear the fields quickly. This also means on occassion we will have an alternate practice plan that could include a team social / dinner, game /film watching, etc.
ALL THIS BEING SAID, PLEASE LIKE OUR FACEBOOK PAGE,
