Madeira Parents, Players and Fans,
I hope you all are remaining healthy and in good spirits during this time of uncertainty. We wanted to follow-up on an earlier communication we made back on March 15th where we unfortunately had to post-pone the Madeira Youth lacrosse season. Our lacrosse community will base our decision on whether or not to continue from the actions of the OHSAA. The OHSAA is utilizing Governor Mike DeWine’s optimism to possibly have a shortened season that would begin in May.
The agreement was to wait until mid-late April to determine next steps for our Youth Lacrosse Boys and Girls for the following reasons:
- OHSAA is in the process of game scheduling for May & June for high school boys and girls.
- We are waiting on a decision from key government officials and the OHSAA to potentially continue the season.
- With the loss of college lacrosse, there will be an abundance of officials for HS, MS, and Youth levels.
- We can creatively look at alternative set-ups to achieve some games in a shortened season. For example, we can look at festival/round-robin type game scheduling.
I hope you share our enthusiasm/optimism on returning to the field in the near future. Our passion to grow the game in the Madeira community is constant and we are aiming to bring hope to your player’s development during these uncertain times. Stay safe, and let us know if you have any questions/concerns.
Look for another email in mid-late April with an update!
