Updates (tomorrow at ST ANDREWS at 7:30)
by posted 05/19/2023

HI All:

The players are working so hard and have come a long way this season! We are working really hard at communication and team work!


GAME TOMORROW (field change!) WE are at ST Andrews FARM FIELD and have players arrive BEFORE 7:30 DRESSED AND READY (please remind your girls of this as they often stroll along after the requested time) so we can warm up and start game on time to not delay other later games! 

I believe everyone is here tomorrow- PLEASE tell me if that is not the case even if you told me before! :)


The next two games after tomorrow will be much more competitive and I expect everyone to be in attendance.

(We only have 3 subs if everyone attends and we will need everyone! PLEASE let me know ASAP if anyone plans to be out??!!)

Lastly we dont have the schedule yet for the week of PLAY OFFS and STATE CHAMPIONSHIP. I WOULD BE PREPARED to attend that week practice and games (which will be held during hte week at night under the lights location TBA!) Times for games will be determined after the last two games we play!

AMAZING game again this week and the players are working so hard and really starting to play well together!

PLEASE find the attach photos that Leda (Marissa's mom) graciously shared with us from the game Saturday! :


(If the link does not work let me know. It comes up oddly in this league athletics system.)


Also stay tuned on Saturday- slight possibility game time could change as rumor has it there are Ref issues...but I dont have final details yet!

I am aware of Nina and Avery being away this week...if that applies to anyone else please let me know ASAP!

Game 4/22 SCYL- arrive ready by 11:15!
by posted 04/21/2023

Hi All:


You athletes are looking strong and motivated for the game tomorrow! We are impressed with how hard they are working and supporting each other this season!

As far as I am aware every team member plans to be in attendance tomorrow!

(If this is not correct tell me ASAP as it effects line ups and coordination with D2 Teams!)

We are AWAY 4/15 playing SCYL at Prout HS

Address: 4640 Tower hill Road Wakefiled, RI

(arrive before 11:15 dressed and ready to warm up - for 11:45 game start).

***Coaches are responisble for fans -we appreciate all POSITIVE support !!!

(We also appreciate if you hold negative comments to give us coaches later as "US" coaches can be held responsible for fans behavior).

Also our players are working hard to learn to think for themselves on the field and as a team may practice some "plays" that may not be as obvious to those on the sideline... :)

Sadly we will have limited refs this year and games likely called not as tightly as they could be (which is a disadvantage), however, this is what we have and we will do our best with it!

LASTLY: PLEASE look ahead to all GAMES and if your player cannot attend any games I need to know asap.

With limited subs it is very hard to plan any last minute changes to games but we may have that option now. We can also sometimes recruit from 5/6 d11 but only if we know well in advance! 

Thank you so much!!

Hi Players and Families of the 5/6 D1 TEAM!

Congrats to your players for making this team! We coaches are VERY excited for this upcoming season and look forward to seeing you all soon!

A few notes as we get started:


THREE indoor practices at Longplex in Tiverton, RI :

Tuesday, March 28th from 6:00pm-7:00pm

Tuesday, April 4th from 6:00pm-7:00pm

Thursday, April 6th from 6:00pm-7:00pm

OUTDOOR Practices starting week of APRIL 10th at Barrington Middle School:

Monday 5:30-7pm St Andrews Field

Thursdays: 4:30-6 BMS

  • (I have heard that at least 1 player may be affected by this start time- it was set so that we could have 30 minutes on the field alone otherwise we share the field for the full practice- if this becomes a challenge to attend we may need to push start time back 15-30 minutes but will keep you posted if that is needed or allowed).

**Occasionally Fridays TBA for skill development.

*PLEASE be prompt for start of practice (Girls should be ready in gear 5 min before start. Also for pick-ups - occasionally we may end a few minutes early to please be mindful of being on time. Also, if you want to listen at all at end of practice that is fine as well J


  • SEI googles, lax stick, mouthguard, (cannot be white or clear!) and wear pinny every practice.


We are requesting a volunteer or two to help us coordinate events/needs during the season.

(Tent to games with rain, pasta night etc)

EASTBAY Website:

PLEASE familiarize yourself with the website and use that to check the team calendar for any changes prior to emailing coaches.

All changes are updated on that site on regular basis.

Rain Cancelations are usually called at about 2pm that day so please wait for an announcement.


Tip: You can use the league athletics eastbay website to merge practice and game schedules into your calendars (from the East Bay Girls 5/6 D1 BLUE team page and select Options then sync calendars (be logged into you google or whatever cal you use or ask Erika).


We will try to send some weekly to bi weekly emails but we cannot always get to those so don’t rely on those reminders about practice/games – all of the is on websites.


Game days check your emails and text (allow text on your profile in eastbay lax) for field addresses change etc. This year there is no app to send messages.



PLEASE use the RSVP for practices and games that the website sends out so we can track this information. This season we have a very small team 15 players. We will need to know ASAP if we have any conflicts. We may have the option to have a few d2 players play up with us but it also depends on how many players they have for their games.

As soon as the schedule is released if you have any days and ESPECIALLY games that are a conflict please tell us coaches ASAP! This includes for the first game on 4/15 time TBA please let me know now – thanks!


Thanks so much and we look forward to a fun season!!
