Shooting Irish Important Notice

Dear Shooting Irish Families,
 
Seldom our internal strength is tested as a community beyond ourselves and our families. Lacrosse as a sport and the stories of those that played the game before us speak to the enjoyment it brings and the bonds of friendship and healing it creates. Our Shooting Irish Coaches and Board want to begin by sharing how much we miss our athletes and parents. It is hard for each of us to practice the responsible actions during this time as it requires sacrifice and for those that this has impacted our thoughts and prayers are with these families.
 
The Shooting Irish Lacrosse Board has been actively monitoring the latest updates of COVID-19 in hopes of salvaging some part of the season. National and state guidelines, York County Lacrosse community team participation, and the significantly constrained time period available after May 1 have contributed to our decision to cancel the 2020 season for both Girls and Boys programs at all ages. We anticipate efforts to “flatten the curve” may relax gathering rules after the month of April and therefore there may be efforts by individual coaches to create opportunities to get teams together which may range from group throw and catch to intra-club “round-robin” games. Participating in such activities is voluntary and open to all SILC registered athletes with a valid US Lacrosse number – participation also does not impact the overall reimbursement plan SILC will enact for the 2020 season. For those families that participated in the Equipment Plan, you will also receive an email on drop off efforts from your coach.
 
As a Board, SILC voted unanimously to reimburse fully registration fees paid for the 2020 season for both boys and girls program participants and will not deduct administration or pre-season operating fees. Registration dues will be calculated, and family reimbursement checks will be mailed by the end of April. This will also include partial reimbursement for the York Catholic Clinic as this was scheduled for two days and only one was held. We know the unexpected cancellation of our season will probably leave you with questions regarding season dues and reimbursements therefore we have created a dedicated contact workflow: please contact playirishlacrosse@gmail.com with any questions or special considerations.
 
In January 2020, Shooting Irish Lacrosse Club started the year with a firm financial position and has built the broadest representative board participation seen in many years. While the cancellation of this season is a hurdle for each of us, our resolve is to drive forward our commitment to build the identity of this program in York. These efforts will continue through the off-season focusing on the core pillars of communication, community and celebration. Communication emphasizes our broadcasting of the SILC vision and teams to ensure we continue to grow year on year. Community seeks to ensure recognition of our responsibility to care for others and we will as a club work to develop relationships with such organizations in the York area. Celebration renews a feeling of excitement and fosters joy among SILC athletes, parents, coaching staff, volunteers and the community.

Thank you for being part of the spirit of Shooting Irish Lacrosse Club.
