    Girls High School Lacrosse in KUSD?

    This week we met with Steve Knecht from KUSD about the possibility of girls lacrosse becoming a girls high school sport in the district. After much discussion he asked for us to respond to him by Monday with whether or not the Raptors and it's players and parents want lacrosse to be a high school sport or not.

    Carrie Durkee and I have put together a list of the pros and cons and she is sending it out to everyone along with a link to the Survey. Please take the time to go in and complete this survey. This is very important to us if we want this to move forward or if you feel strongly against it. We are encouraging all current, future and past high school players to fill this out by this Sunday. Thank you. Please feel free to contact Rob or Carrie with any questions.

    Survey Questions

    Please complete this survey by Sunday night.

    NEW BOYS DIRECTOR

    Organizational Announcement

    After many years of dedicated service, our boy’s director has decided it’s time to step down at the end of this season.  Please join us in thanking Tray Barr for all his hard work over the years and dedication to the boys of Kenosha while advancing the game of Lacrosse.  

    I would like to introduce his replacement, Ricky Kaebisch.  Ricky has stepped up and we welcome him to continue where Tray left off.  Here is a little bit about our new boy’s director, in his own words:

    "I am a Wisconsin native, grew up in Tomah, WI.  I have been very active in organized sports growing up.  I retired from the US Navy as a Hospital Corpsman after 20 years’ service. During that period I have coached all age levels, boys and girls sports, from volleyball to softball to football to baseball. We were introduced to the great game of LAX while stationed in North Carolina. Our entire family loved the speed and athleticism of lacrosse and have been hooked ever since. We have been part of the Raptors for the past 4+ years and have enjoyed our time. I have assisted the High School programs for the past three years as an assistant coach and have ran the Raptors off-season conditioning program for the past three years at the YMCA for middle and high school boys. I have a boy on the High School team and a boy beginning his LAX journey on the Bantams. It is an honor to be selected as Boy's Lacrosse Director.  I will do my best to continue the success Tray Barr has started.  I want to thank Tray and Stephi for all they have done and continue to do to grow LAX in Kenosha - THANK YOU!"

    This season Ricky will be working closely with Tray to come up to speed.  Expect to see him around, talking to all the coaches and kids and getting to know everyone.

    Welcome Ricky and best of luck to Tray.  We are glad you will still be around to coach our boys in the future.

     

    Go Raptors!

      LACROSSE WALL BALL DRILLS

       Every drill that you do- do it with both hands 50 times each!
       Always wear gloves when you are performing your routine- you play with gloves so why not practice with gloves
       Stand 5-7 yards away from the wall
       Perform this routine at least 4-5 times per week
       Each routine should be at least 20 minutes in length- if you finish all drills in less than 20 minutes, repeat drills starting with the drill that challenged you the most.
