Damen National Team Letter

Hello,

I wanted to write a let­ter to all wom­ens DlaxV teams and mem­bers at this time; first to con­grat­u­late all those Players/​Teams that have par­tic­i­pated in this very suc­cess­ful sea­son. The num­bers of play­ers have been increas­ing across Germany,as new clubs pop up and cur­rent ones grow. The level of play has also increased, which has pro­vided more bal­ance and bet­ter games. I must add a spe­cial con­grat­u­la­tions to DHC Han­nover, HLC Rot-​Weiß München, HTHC Ham­burg War­riors, and SCC Blax for mak­ing it through to Cham­pi­onships week­end. I am look­ing for­ward to see­ing each game as the bright­est stars of Ger­man lacrosse get to be show­cased. Thank you to the Dres­den Lacrosse Club for host­ing a great event at a fab­u­lous location.

I wanted to also give every­one a full out­line for the selec­tion process run­ning up to the Euro­pean championships.

The National Team Pro­gram mov­ing forward:

Tak­ing into account for this past season’s work and two open camps, the National Team Coach­ing Staff, selected its first team for a friendly to be hosted on June 19th in Berlin against the Dutch Devel­op­ment Team. This game will start at 8:20pm, at Sta­dion Lichter­felde. Con­grat­u­la­tions to those names on this list below.

Along with this team being named the coach­ing staff has cho­sen a cap­tain, Tessa Helf, who will lead the pro­gram as it moves for­ward in prepa­ra­tion for the Euro­pean Cham­pi­onships. Tessa has show great lead­er­ship through­out the first open camps and her club sea­son. We as a coach­ing staff are very excited about her future with the National Team in this role.

We will have one more open camp on the 23rd & 24th of August in Frank­furt. This camp is open to all mem­bers of the Ger­man lacrosse com­mu­nity. I strongly encour­age all those inter­ested in the national team pro­gram to attend this camp as this will be a great place to show­case your talents.

The fol­low­ing camps on Sept 27th & 28th, Nov. 8th and 9th, and April 3rd –6th will be invite only. These invi­ta­tions will be sent out to play­ers that have caught the atten­tion of the coach­ing staff either from a camp, a club match, or at a major lacrosse tour­na­ment. After the April 6th camp the coach­ing staff will put together a 25 player ros­ter for the Euro­pean Cham­pi­onships in August 2015 in prague. A devel­op­ment team will also be cho­sen with the goal to con­tinue train­ing in prepa­ra­tion for the World cup in 2017. These two team will come together in May on the 14th and train through the 17th.

More camps and friend­lies will be announced as we start to sched­ule things the DlaxV Cal­en­dar will be updated.
