Youth and HS Come Together With Single Source of Info For Parents and Players...Quarterly.
With the ever expanding universe of Oregon girls lacrosse comes an information overload for players, parents and coaches. Whether it is information about club team tryouts, clinics, camps or educational opportunities, the list (and number of emails) continues to grow. In an effort to cut down on the number of emails you receive from the OGYLA and OGLA regarding these types of events, we are moving to a quarterly "guide" format. Not that there will not be a last minute email from time to time, but we will work hard to consolidate all the information (in an unbiased format) regarding all of the different events into one document for youth and HS and send out once a quarter. We will continue to post new information as it becomes available, but we will no longer notify you of each and every time something is posted, therefore we encourage you to check the web site regularly on your own.
With this in mind, we are pleased to roll out our 2016 Spring Girls Lax Guide with a listing of every known educational event, camp, clinic and tryout we know of! It is available for download RIGHT NOW in the document section of the OGLA web site or just CLICK HERE: http://files.leagueathletics.com/Text/Documents/21684/63400.pdf
