Lake Washington Lacrosse of Kirkland Washington. #GOKANGS #LWLAX

Change Team: 
LW Lacrosse Nuts and Bolts

Hi HS lacrosse players,

What a time we live in. At this point in the season we would have gone on a retreat, played 10 games, had 2 scrimmages, a couple back to back game days, a couple JV games, dressed up at school, this weekend we would be on our Portland overnight trip and Monday gearing up for a final season push.

I drove through Kirkland the other day, with the kids, and when we got off the exit Tyree immediately asked if we were going to a game. Even he has muscle memory.

This week: We will be setting up a Zoom meet up for the team on Wednesday at 3:30 pm. I will text and email the players the link on Wednesday morning.  It will be a time to reconnect and check in and see what each other has been up to. Jump rope has been the work out of choice in the Hush house.

The future: We have started reaching out to Summer Tourney Directors and all have added divisions that allow seniors (2020 graduates) to play so that HS teams can enter together and have a chance to play. We are actively looking to enter these events as a KANG team.  This will be dependent on player availability. Some dates we are looking at...

Weekends of  June 12-14, June 26-28

Weekends of July 10-12, July 17-19, July 24-26

Keep your minds sharp, your body in shape and yourself and family healthy.

Some more Drills for you guys:

The Pro League PLL has put out a “Stay at Home” Series with drills for every position

“In Tight” Drill with Kyle Hartzell

check out Jules Heningburg as well (Z Drill)


College Coaches have started also putting together videos of drills they use to make their players individually better.

“Coaching through Cancellation” Series


PS if you are doing anything creative during this time, take a video and send it this way and we will post it on our Instagram and to our Twitter account, so all of the other KANGs can see you putting in work, well rounded and amazing our players are.  Currently waiting for a piano song from Senior Henry Serr, and a past drum solo from Senior Owen Mercer.

Get better every day

Hi HS families

As the Governor issues the stay at home order to go til May 4th, we are still in limbo.

Now is a time to think about all the things we can do that we never have time for.

  • Have dinner with our parents (without devices)
  • Read a book for pleasure (novel idea)
  • Get better right now at lacrosse, in your own home or backyard
  • Watch some lacrosse.

Earlier I sent the players some IG handles of pro players and college coaches that are on the cutting edge of their field. Hopefully players are watching videos and gleaming some new ways to work on skills.

This week I have found a couple of videos I would like to share for inspirational purposes- See where your game can get to, so enjoy:

In the meantime, Coaches will be putting skill homework assignment for players to work on. Players need to email me first to receive the homework. A nudge from your side would be very grateful. The Homework will be split into 3 categories.


  1. Conditioning: footwork and stamina building activities
  2. Individual skill: building , shooting, dodging etc... First 
  3. Lacrosse IQ: Every player will be invited to access out Team Hudl Account to watch video

Season Update

Kang Families,

Our league, the Washington HS Boys Lacrosse Association has just announced that all league contests will be suspended until April 24th.  This is following Governor Inslee’s school closures and King County Exec statement prohibiting gatherings of groups, recreation related, or event related.  LWSD has also cancelled all field usage until the school closures are lifted.

Lake Washington Lacrosse has made the leadership decision to follow their direction and guidance as it relates to our High School Program and team activities, LW Lacrosse will suspend games and cancel practices until April 24th.  (including Captains Practices)

As we anticipate many questions, know we are working on this diligently.  This is a challenging time for us all and our leadership team has been navigating through this evolving situation as best as possible.

Thank you,

LW Lacrosse


From the WHSBLA:

In light of the recent announcements by Governor Inslee and public health guidance and expectations around social distancing, the WHSBLA is announcing the following:

· All WHSBLA contests (any form of play against an opponent) are suspended indefinitely. 

· Regardless of your program's affiliation with your school/district, your program must follow the mandate set forth by your school district.  For example, if your school district has stated that school sports may not practice, then your lacrosse program may not practice.

· In preparation for a return to play, all non-league contests will be cancelled.  The WHSBLA Board will work to put together a shortened conference schedule.”
