How Do We Form Our Teams?

At the 1st - 4th  grade level:

Keep in mind that every organization in the metroplex has it's own way of doing this but this is what has worked the best for us due to car pool reasons etc.

  • First Criteria:  We keep players together from the same school
  • Second Criteria:  We keep players together from the same grade at that school example below:

We keep players together that are from the same school.  If we have a full team (10 players) of 1st graders from Christ The King we would keep them together even though there are several 2nd grade players that would like to play from Christ The King as well.  Let's say the CKS second graders could form half a team, we would then mesh them with another group of players lets say from Good Shepherd to form a whole team.  

One thing I can not promise is that if Johnny goes to St Thomas but his best friend Billy goes to St Rita can the St Thomas kids and St Rita kids be on the same team?  Last year I had a full St Thomas 1/2 team so unless Billy wants to play with Johnny's St Thomas friends but not his St Rita pals then the answer is no here.  We just have to see where the numbers for each school/age net out in the end and we won't know if it will work until registration is over and we start forming teams.    

At the Youth level (5-8 grades)

  • First Citeria Division 1 or 2
  • Seond Criteria school
  • Third Criteria grade 

Teams: Division 1 or 2

In 5th-8th grade you will be placed on a Division 1 or 2 team.  We will form these teams primarily by grade.  For example an all 5th grade team would be D2 and an all 6th grade team would be D1, etc.  



Cost for Spring 2018:

Costs for Spring 2017

1st/2nd grade:  $300 
3rd/4th grade:  $350 
5th/6th grade:  $600 
7th/8th grade:  $600 


This price does not include uniforms or US Lacrosse number.  See References below for both.

Uniforms

Everyone gets a new uniform this year and you purchase your uniform directly in the registration before you check out.    

Shorts:  $35
Jersey:  $40

Optional Socks:  $15

You will be able to pick your own sizes and jersey numbers during the registration process.  If you do not get one of your three number choices we will pick one for you.  No (2) numbers can conflict in any given age group.  


US Lacrosse Number:

All players need a valid US Lacrosse number for the season.   Anyone that played for us last year has a US Lacrosse number that is valid through at least April so most of you will not have to renew right away.  US Lacrosse numbers cost $25 and must be renewed annually.  All bantam and youth lacrosse players in the metroplex are required to have one no matter what organization they play with.  

Practices and Games

Practices will be held at Gooch Elementary or Dallas Jesuit or another location in that area.

Gooch Elementary
4030 Calculus Drive
Dallas, TX 75244

Dallas Jesuit
12345 Inwood Road
Dallas, TX 75244

Practices will be held after school at one of these locations.  They will start at 4:00 PM.  Our coaches, coach multiple youth teams and are also Jesuit coaches so we will assign the practice days for each team after the teams are formed.
 

Teams will begin practicing in the beginning of February.  

Games:

Home games will be located at Dallas Jesuit and away games will be located at the away teams facility (could be anywhere in the metroplex).  Games can be on either Saturday or Sunday.  We can not guarantee which day they will be on Saturday or Sunday.  We have home field availabilty at Jesuit primarily on Sunday's but we do have a few Saturday's as well. That being said, there is no way for me to know our opponents home field availability on any weekend.

Games will start the weekend of February, 18th for all Deuces teams.  The Deuces will not play games on either weekend of Spring Break.  We try to avoid Easter weekend as well.  Division 1 Deuces teams must play each opposing Division 1 team in their age division once during the season.  Playoffs commence at the end of season for all teams except 1st and 2nd grade.


Who Can Play for the Deuces?

The Deuces was formed as a Parochial School feeder lacrosse program for Jesuit College Preparatory School.  The Deuces were admitted to the DFWLL under the following eligibility rules:  Notwithstanding the eligibility rules, students at a DPL School (i.e. all of the Catholic Schools in the area), Good Shepherd Episcopal School (11110 Midway Rd, Dallas), St. John’s Episcopal (848 Harter Rd), and the Cistercian School (3660 Cistercian Rd), or those lacrosse players who are siblings of current Deuces players or Jesuit students, have the option of playing for the Deuces.  Otherwise, current eligibility rules apply.

If you have any questions regarding whether you can play for the Deuces or not, please email Tiffany Surran prior to registration. 


Our Coaches

The Deuces will have parent, volunteer coaches at the 1st-4th grade level.  

At the 5th-8th grade levels, the Deuces employ highly qualified lacrosse coaches with plenty of lacrosse experience and coaching knowledge.  Many of our coaches are also Jesuit Lacrosse coaches.  The Deuces are taught the same fundamentals and team lacrosse philosophies that the Jesuit players are taught, therefore making it easier on the Deuces players once they reach the high school level.  

 Our teams also utilize team managers.  The team manager jobs involve webpage updates, team emails and some minor coordination of events.  Most of the team manager's job involves getting the teams up and running in late January with initial communications about practice and game times.   All of our coaches will continue to have background checks.  


Equipment Needed

 All players will need the following equipment for the 2016 lacrosse season:

uniform (see uniform section above)
lacrosse stick
helmet with mouth guard
gloves
arm guards
shoulder pads
protective cup
lacrosse balls for practicing wall ball at home

Goalies need a goalie stick and chest protector (house sticks and chest protectors will be provided at all D2 and 3 levels as well as 1st/2nd grade.
