Somers is once again hosting a Fall Ball Lacrosse League with one game each week on Saturdays.
League is for Girls and Boys Junior level players (grade 5/6) and Senior level players (grades 7/8)
Season will run from Saturday, September 10 until Sunday, October 30. Boys teams will play on Saturday mornings and Girls teams will plan on Saturday afternoons
On the Halloween weekend, Oct 29 & 30, the final event of the season will be a small "Halloween Jam" mini round robin tournament
Field locations will be Somers Middle School back field and Firehouse back field
Games will run 55 minutes (50 min playing time, 5 min halftime) in 10v10 or smaller formats
The Fall season is less intense than spring lacrosse with few (if any) practices and one game per week. It's an opportunity for children to keep stick and game skills fresh and is designed for players of all skill levels. It is recommended for children to have played at least one season so they understand the basics of the game.
Vinnie Carra and Joleen Speight will be coordinating the league. Schedules will be out early September once we have final commitments from all the teams participating.
Fall season fee is $60 and registrations are open now through Sept 5 online at SomersLacrosse.org just select "register online" from the left menu. Late fees apply after Sept 5. We encourage you to sign up as early as possible to secure a spot and to allow us time to plan our team counts and schedule.
Hope you can join us!

Lacrosse tournaments don't get much more exciting than this! Somers Senior girls played competitive teams from Canton, Avon and Wallingford at Fisher Meadows in Avon, CT on May 22. Somers was one of four teams to advance to the semi-final round. In the semi-finals, Somers scored a game winning goal in the last 10 seconds to advance to the finals game against Madison SR girls. In the finals, the score was close with Somers leading 3-2 and five minutes remaining. Madison rallied and scored 2 goals to take a 5-4 lead with one minute remaining. Somers scored with only 5 seconds left on the clock to send the game into overtime. A sudden death overtime period with no scoring then led to a braveheart round. The heart-racing braveheart round started with a critical save by Somers goalie Marissa Long, followed by a sprint down the field and a powerful shot taken by Somers team captain Lindsay Skinner to win the game!
EVERY Somers player on offense and defense showed the heart and hustle of a champion. Amazing teamwork and a great day of lacrosse! Great job to all and WAY TO GO SOMERS!!
