Dear Parents and Players, 

As many of you may or may not know, Woodcreek Lacrosse recently announced that Woodcreek High School would be supporting CIF sanctioned lacrosse. This email is to update you on recent events and the current status of the program.

After many weeks of meetings, email communications, and more, it became clear that the Club and Woodcreek High School should pursue CIF sanctioning in the spring of 2020 - where strategic planning and coordination will occur rather than trying to push CIF in 2019. Many factors were taken into consideration when making this recent decision (too many to detail here); however, we as a Board, would like to highlight the main reasons so that you understand the complexity of this decision. It was not taken lightly.

The main factor driving the decision to remain a high school Club program was due in part to scheduling. The schedules for CIF teams in our area were decided in the spring of 2018, a process that WCLAX was not factored in to as we became sanctioned after the 2019 schedules were set. As a result, WCLAX would be required to operate as "independent" teams in 2019, which means that our schedules would be subject to the availability of the other local high school teams. We have not only spoken with CIF directly regarding this but many of the local coaches in both conferences also concurred.

All things considered, we will be refocusing our efforts on NCJLA for 2019, and gearing up for CIF in 2020. We’ll continue to work closely with the high school and CIF as we move forward. Scheduling for NCJLA (the league we’ve always played in) occurs in December and we are planning on a full roster of games for our high school teams similar to previous seasons.

Thank you for your continued support. If you any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me.

 

Regards,

Gina Moore, Woodcreek Lacrosse, President
