Sports Teams/Coaches – Cheverus High School
Head Coach: Craig Roberts — [email protected]
For those new to girls soccer at Cheverus, the summer programming is about inclusion and team building first and foremost. It is open to all players, regardless of previous team placement and regardless of skill level. -Attendance is not mandatory; finding balance between friends, family, and athletics is important especially during the summer. As I said at the banquet last season, ask yourself, “what can I give to girls soccer?” and then do your best to give that.
We have three focus areas each summer:
- program-building (We want players to leave the summer more comfortable and confident about entering Cheverus and we want them to know they are an important part of the girls’ soccer “family.”)
- fundamentals and fitness (We want all players to get touches on the ball and develop a base level of fitness to avoid injury when the preseason starts)
- core values (We want all players to invest in certain core values that have shaped the program’s success. That process starts during the summer)
Summer Schedule & Cost
COVID protocols will basically be the same as at school. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to the scheduled start time for temperature screening and wear a face covering when social distancing is not possible. It is my understanding that players and coaches, who are fully vaccinated, will not have to quarantine should a player contract COVID or be a “close contact.”
Prospective captains meeting (TBA)
- Monday, June 21 Skills & Small-Sided Games. 4:30 – 6:00 pm. 947 Washington Ave.
- Wednesday, June 23 Skills & Small-Sided Games. 4:30 – 6:00 pm. 947 Washington Ave.

The cost for participating in summer soccer this year is $75. This pays for coaching, summer league fees, and officials. Players will get a “Cheverus Girls Soccer” shirt to use in the summer league and keep afterward.
Checks should be made payable to “Cheverus High School” (“Girls Soccer” in the memo line).
Except for prospective captains, attendance is optional at summer training.
What to bring? Cleats, “running shoes,” plenty of water, face covering, mouth guard, shin guards
The summer league schedule is tentative as some schools are still determining if they will offer summer athletics. If we don’t have a game, we will have training at 947 Washington Ave.
Again, please remember, ALL players are welcome to participate in summer activities! Even if you don’t end up playing in the fall, come join us for the summer!
A note for incoming freshmen and transfer students. Rules require that you’ve been accepted at Cheverus, you’ve paid the deposit, and you are done at your sending school prior to participating in summer programming.
Kennebec Youth Lacrosse Home Page
Welcome to Kennebec Youth Lacrosse 2021.
3-27-21 UPDATE on 2021 Spring Season
Hello All Cannons, the registration deadline has come and gone and our uniform orders have been submitted. We had a better than hoped for turnout and all of our teams are fully stocked and ready for the season. The schedule is being worked on as we speak. For anyone who still wants to sign up for the season, we request that you contact us first at [email protected] The only time we turn anyone away is if our team sizes get to be too large. We want everyone to have plenty of playing time!
2-24-21 UPDATE on 2021 Spring Season
Hello All Kennebec Youth Lacrosse Players and Families,
All of us on the Kennebec Youth Lacrosse Board are happy to say that we fully plan on having a 2021 lacrosse season. We have been in contact with Maine Youth Lacrosse, of which we are a member organization, and they believe that we are a “go” for the year. We will be following Maine CDC guidelines as well as those decided upon by US Lacrosse and Maine Youth Lacrosse regarding our COVID policies.
We will NOT be having our traditional pre-season Armory clinics and do not foresee having any indoor practices. We will wait for the snow to clear and once dry, we will be outdoors playing the game we love. For those of you strongly wanting to play indoor lacrosse, Augusta Recreation has an indoor clinic on their webpage and the Maine Mussels and Maineiax are also running clinics.
Signups for the season ARE NOW LIVE. Our DEADLINE for registration will be end of the day on Sunday, March 21st. Anything after that will be considered late and subject to a fee increase as well as at risk of not getting a uniform. (Sorry, but our uniform orders are required by then in order to be ready for the season.)
We want to stress that EVERYONE is welcome to play for KYL even if you have not been with Kennebec Youth Lacrosse before. We realize that some of our fellow youth organizations will not be running in 2021 and we would like to offer everyone a place to play even if they intend to rejoin their “home” organizations next year. We are all one community and can’t wait to work together.
We have kept the uniform and registration costs the same as last year. Scholarships are available to those of you in need. Just notify one of the Coaches or Board Members about your request.
Thank you for playing this great sport,
Pre-Season Armory Clinics 2021
Will not be held this year due to COVID. We ARE having our regular season.
Regular Season Information
Grades Kindergarten – 2nd Grade Program
The K-2 co-ed instructional league will be coached by Ryan Michaud and a rotation of our older grade coaches.
The program will take place at the Ice Vault in Hallowell. Sessions will tentatively be from Noon to 1PM on Sundays. Our first session weather permitting is planned for May 2nd and our last session will be on June 13th. We will notify you via e-mail regarding weather cancellations.
The goal of the program is to teach basic skills. This is not a travel team. We will not be playing games against teams from other towns. We may scrimmage from time to time but that is up to the coaches.
No equipment is necessary other than a mouthpiece and sneakers. Feel free to use your own stick and protective eyewear if you have any.
A Kennebec Cannons practice pinnie is included in your registration fee. Please wear it to all of your clinics.
The fee for the program is $30. The kids in the K-2 co-ed program will also need to enroll as a US Lacrosse member. The cost for US Lacrosse membership is an additional $30. In order to register with Kennebec Youth Lacrosse, you must first have your 2021 US Lacrosse membership.
Tip: When registering with US Lacrosse you will be asked what league you belong to (Maine Youth Lacrosse) as well as what Organization (Kennebec Youth Lacrosse.)

Grades 3-8 Program
The Registration fee for grades 3-8 is $100 per player.
Our “Classic” Cannons uniform top and bottom will be provided on loan for the 3rd-4th grade players at no additional charge.
The 5th-6th grade and 7th-8th grade teams will be using our “new” Sublimated Practice/Game Jerseys and Shorts that the players will now purchase and own. They will have the option in later seasons to keep using the uniforms they now own and save themselves the purchase cost. Players must purchase a full uniform if they do not already have one that they can use from previous years. There will be a section on the registration form to purchase uniforms. We do NOT plan on changing our uniform design unless the manufacturer does.
Optional shooter shirts will also be available on the registration forms. A boys or girls shooter shirt is worn on game days under a players game jersey and equipment. It will be a red performance t-shirt that will have the Cannons logo on the front and the Cannons name on the tail of the shirt. It goes very well with our new Sublimated Jerseys. It has turned out to be a very popular item amongst our players. We will try to order extras this year as we have run out of them three years in a row. Honestly, most of the 3rd thru 8th grade players want a shooter shirt before the end of the season. Our K-2nd graders really do not need a shooter shirt.
ALL players must have a current US Lacrosse membership, which is an additional $30. In order to register with Kennebec Youth Lacrosse, you must first have your 2021 US Lacrosse membership.
Tip: When registering with US Lacrosse you will be asked what league you belong to (Maine Youth Lacrosse) as well as what Organization (Kennebec Youth Lacrosse.)
Link to US Lacrosse: https://www.uslacrosse.org/
We field a 3rd-4th grade team, a 5th-6th grade team and a 7th-8th grade team for both boys and girls. The younger teams typically practice 2 times a week with games on the weekend. The 7th-8th grade teams may practice up to 4 times a week. They will have games during the week in place of some practices.
Tournaments are on the weekends. We do NOT anticipate any tournaments being run in 2021 due to COVID.
Once we get closer to the season and we determine how many teams there will be and who will be coaching, the practice schedules will be published. Practices usually begin around the middle of April or as soon as the fields are safe and dry. There will not be indoor practices in 2021 due to COVID. If we can get time on Artificial Turf fields in early April, we will let you know.
Games typically start around the last weekend in April and last until the middle of June. We play in a travel league against teams from Bangor to Cape Elizabeth.
We do not supply equipment. A typical starter set of equipment costs around $200 for boys and $80 for girls. Please see below regarding our Dick’s and Laxpros sale days. For those in need, we do have some used equipment that we can loan out. However, you take your chances on what we might have available. Please contact any Coach or Board Member if you wish to borrow equipment.
Multiple Child Discount
We WILL be keeping our multiple child per family discount.
Breakdown: When you sign up 2 or more players, you can reduce the cost of each player by $5.
US Lacrosse Membership
ALL kids (including K-2) must have an active US Lacrosse membership number prior to registration. Go to www.uslacrosse.org to sign up/renew. This provides the club/players insurance coverage as well as a 12 month Lacrosse Magazine subscription. It must be valid through June 30, 2021.
Tip: When registering with US Lacrosse you will be asked what league you belong to (Maine Youth Lacrosse) as well as what Organization (Kennebec Youth Lacrosse.)
Our registration deadline for all regular season programs is the end of the day on Sunday, March 21st. Late registrations will be assessed a late fee. There also is no guarantee that we can provide our new sublimated game uniforms to late registrants. Our deadline from the uniform supplier is March 25th. They do not accept single uniform requests. Sorry. You can register Online on this webpage when registration opens. (OPEN NOW.) You can also register at our Dick’s (Augusta store) Day Sale March 20th.

Scholarships are available for those who need a little extra help. Please contact any of the Coaches or Board Members to learn more. We want EVERYONE to be able to play this game. If you know of someone who might need a scholarship and needs encouragement to ask for one, please let us know.

Where to Find Used Outdoor Gear and Sporting Goods in Portland
Ready to upgrade your gear or embark on a new adventure this year? Before you buy new, swing by one of these Portland stores and save on used outdoor gear and sporting goods. You might be able to save even more by selling or consigning your old gear while you’re there.
There are so many places to find used outdoor gear and sporting goods these days, but how do you know you’re getting the most for your money? Unless you are a pro at properly assessing the quality of what you’re buying, you could be spending too much on equipment that is past its prime. Leave it up to the experts at these Portland outdoor gear and sporting goods stores.
Here’s a list of a few places you should visit for used outdoor gear and sporting goods in Portland. If you know of another great place to find good quality used gear at an affordable price, send us a message!
Where to Find Used Outdoor Gear and Sporting Goods in Portland

The store has a wide range of supplies for adults and kids, including camping, climbing, paddling and snow activities. If you’re looking for all things outdoor adventure, this store has you covered.
Next Adventure does not list its used gear online so you will have to visit the store to view the latest inventory.
If you are interested in selling your old gear, you can do so at the Bargain Basement. Next Adventure will give you store credit for quality gear that is clean and functional. You can sell your used gear at all four Next Adventure locations. Call to make an appointment before you visit.

The store offers a selection of new and used outdoor gear, clothing and accessories with an inventory that changes with the seasons. Foster Outdoor does list some of its used inventory online, but I recommend visiting the store in person to see everything it has in stock.
If you have some outdoor gear or outdoor apparel you’d like to sell, Foster Outdoor does accept items for consignment. The store’s goal is to set pricing that benefits both the customer and Foster Outdoor while promoting quick sell-through. You don’t need an appointment to consign your gear.

It may not cover the full cost, but it will save you money on your purchase. You don’t need an appointment to sell your gear.

Boys’ lacrosse: Waynflete handles Oak Hill to win Class C state title
They started with a bang and finished with a flourish.
The top-seeded Waynflete boys left no doubt Saturday afternoon in the Class C lacrosse state championship game with a 17-5 victory over No. 2 Oak Hill/Monmouth/Lisbon at Fitzpatrick Stadium.
Sam Whipple scored four of his five goals in the first half as the Flyers (14-1) built a 9-0 lead and were never seriously threatened on the way to their second state title in three years.
“We love playing our hard schedule and they don’t have that same luxury,” Waynflete senior defender Ben Adey said of the previously unbeaten Raiders (13-1). “We knew if we came out hard and got some quick goals, they haven’t faced that adversity before.”
It was Adey, a defender, who put the icing on the cake in the final minute, scoring the first goal of his career by finishing off a textbook give-and-go with classmate Ned Lane. The victory also marked the ninth team title of Adey’s illustrious athletic career. Since his freshman winter, his Alpine skiing (three), tennis (three), soccer (two) and lacrosse (one) seasons each ended with a championship.
“I saw him cutting to the crease,” Lane said, “and I wanted him to get a goal.”
Adey was one of nine Flyers to score. Lane had three goals, Harry Millspaugh and Seth Cloutier two apiece and Owen Anderson, Nils Burton-Johanson, Roan Hopkins, Nico Kirby each had one.
“We don’t have pressure on just one person,” Whipple said. “We can share the ball and rely on our teammates. Everybody can put it in the back of the net.”
Millspaugh misfired a few times early, then spent much of the rest of the game setting up teammates. He finished with five assists. He said he recently restrung the net of his stick and understood within a few minutes that he would be more effective as a passer than a shooter.
“Guys were getting open and I found them, and they were getting goals,” he said, “so I figured why not keep going to them.”
Defensively, Adey and sophomore Liam Anderson shadowed Oak Hill’s most dangerous attackers, Travis Caron and Tiger Hopkins. Mike Veroneau, Jasper Curtis and goalie Alex Vest (11 saves) took care of the rest.
Caron and Riley Worth scored for Oak Hill to open the third quarter and cut the margin to 9-3, but that marked the only time the Raiders, making their first appearance in a state title game, put together consecutive goals.
“We’re not used to playing in a big game,” Oak Hill Coach Joey Hinkley said. “Lot of people here. Big city. And it’s tough when you don’t get to see teams like this during the regular season.”
The only blemish for Waynflete this spring came against Class A South runner-up Berwick Academy. On Saturday, Whipple struck twice in the first four minutes, sandwiched around a Millspaugh feed to Hopkins for a quick 3-0 lead.
“You’re holding your breath, just hoping you can get on the board first and have that little release,” Waynflete Coach Andrew Leach said. “And as soon as we did, it just kept going from there.”

Hebron Academy (Hebron Academy Private School) (Portland, USA) – how to apply, prices, reviews

Students and parents alike celebrate the school’s excellent campus: 900 hectares of green, scenic rolling hills and valleys at the foot of the imposing White Mountains. And students actively use the advantageous territorial location: they constantly go hiking, go in for sports tourism and orienteering, master rock climbing, skiing and snowboarding.
Teachers and personal tutors help each student create a personal, unique curriculum: classes are formed small in order to apply an individual, personal approach to each student (up to 12 people in each). Seminars, lectures and discussions on each subject, thematically and semantic overlap with other disciplines, which helps to make learning more effective, comprehensive, and deep. The ratio of teachers to students is approximately 1: 7. About 28-30% of the school’s students are foreigners from 25 countries of the world: children of any nationality, skin color and religious affiliation can study here.
There is also a separate business and entrepreneurship program for high school students: they can create a personal business project and even receive a grant for its implementation – this is very much appreciated by representatives of admissions commissions and helps to earn extra points when enrolling in the best universities in the USA and the world.

Portland is the most populous city in the US state of Maine and the capital of Cumberland County. Portland’s population as of 2019 was 66,215. The Greater Portland metropolitan area is home to over half a million people and is the 105th largest metropolitan area in the United States. Portland’s economy is largely dependent on services and tourism. The Old Port area is known for its 19th century architecture and nightlife. The maritime industry continues to play an important role in the city’s economy with an active waterfront that supports fishing and commercial shipping.Portland is the largest seaport in New England.
Phoenix (mythology) city seal Portland was named after the English island of Portland, Dorset. In turn, the city of Portland, Oregon was named after Portland, Maine. Portland itself is derived from the Old English word Portland, which means “the land that surrounds the harbor.”

Native Americans originally called the Peninsula Portland Machigon (“Big Neck”).Portland was named after the English island of Portland, and the city of Portland, Oregon, in turn, was named after Portland, Maine. The first European settler was Captain Christopher Levett, an English naval captain who was granted the right to establish a settlement in Casco Bay in 1623. A New England councilor and agent of Ferdinando Gorges, Levett built a stone house in which he left a company of ten and then returned to England to write a book about his travels to support the settlement.The settlement ultimately failed, and the fate of Levett’s colonists is unknown. The explorer sailed from England to the Massachusetts Bay Colony to meet John Winthrop in 1630, but never returned to Maine. Fort Levett in the harbor is named after him.
The peninsula was founded in 1632 as a fishing and trading village called Casco. When the Massachusetts Bay Colony took over Casco Bay in 1658, the city’s name changed again to Falmouth.In 1676, the village was destroyed by the Abenaki during the war of King Philip. It has been restored. During King William’s war, a detachment of the French and their native allies attacked and largely destroyed it again at the Battle of Fort Loyal (1690).
On October 18, 1775, Falmouth was burned during the revolution by the Royal Navy under the command of Captain Henry Mowat. After the war, a part of Falmouth called the Neck developed as a trading port and began to develop rapidly as a shipping center.In 1786, the people of Falmouth formed a separate city in Falmouth Neck and named it Portland, after an island off the coast of Dorset in England. Portland’s economy was heavily bolstered by the 1807 Embargo Act (banning trade with the British), which ended in 1809, and the War of 1812, which ended in 1815.
Maine was founded in 1820 as a state with Portland as its capital. In 1832, the capital was moved north and east to Augusta. In 1851, Maine took the lead in the nation by enacting the first state law to prohibit the sale of alcohol except for “medical, mechanical, or industrial purposes.”This law later became known as the Maine law, and 18 states quickly followed suit. On June 2, 1855, the Portland Rum Riot took place.

In 1853, following the completion of the Great Main Railroad to Montreal, Portland became a major ice-free winter port for Canadian exports. Portland, located on Fore Street, manufactured more than 600 19th century steam locomotives, as well as train and boat engines, fire engines and other railroad equipment.The Portland-based company was for a time the city’s largest employer, and many of its employees were immigrants from Canada, Ireland and Italy. Portland became a 20th century railroad junction when five additional rail lines merged to form the Portland Terminal Company in 1911. Following the nationalization of the Grand Trunk system in 1923, Canadian export traffic was diverted from Portland to Halifax, Nova Scotia, resulting in a notable local economic downturn…. In the 20th century, icebreakers later allowed ships to reach Montreal in winter, dramatically reducing Portland’s role as Canada’s winter port.
On June 26, 1863, a Confederate raiding force led by Captain Charles Reed entered Portland Harbor, leading to the Battle of Portland Harbor, one of the most northerly battles of the Civil War. The Great Fire of 1866 in Portland, Maine on July 4, 1866, which broke out during the Independence Day celebrations, destroyed most of the commercial buildings in the city, half of the churches and hundreds of homes.More than 10,000 people were left homeless.

However, in areas further from the nearest coast, the average annual rainfall is slightly higher, as warmer ocean waters and coastal currents can cause snow to turn into snow or rain along the coast. In southern Maine, winter snowstorms can be intense from November to early April, while warm season thunderstorms are somewhat less common than in the Midwest, Mid Atlantic, and southeastern United States.Direct hits from hurricanes or tropical storms are rare, due in part to the generally cooler Atlantic waters off the coast of Maine (which tend to weaken tropical systems), but primarily due to the fact that most tropical systems approaching or reaching 40 degrees north latitude, repeat (due to the Coriolis force) and head east towards the sea south of Portland. Temperature extremes range from February 16, 1943 to July 4, 1911, and August 2, 1975.

Portland is the second largest cruise and passenger destination in the state (adjacent to Bar Harbor) and is served by the Ocean Gateway International Marine Passenger Terminal. Ferry services are available all year round to many destinations in Casco Bay. From 2006 to 2009, Bay Ferries operated a high-speed ferry called The Cat with a five-hour journey to Yarmouth, Nova Scotia for summer passengers and cars.In years past, Scotia Prince Cruises took eleven hours to travel. In 2013, the province rejected a proposal to replace the defunct Nova Scotia ferry service. From May 15, 2014 to October 2015, the Nova Star cruise ferry operated daily to Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. Due to low passenger numbers and financial concerns, Nova Scotia has selected Bay Ferries, The Cat’s previous operator, to provide services since 2016, citing the company’s expertise and industry relationship.Representatives of Nova Star promised that the transition to the new operator will be smooth. Nova Star was later arrested by federal marshals for non-payment of bills.

They said the vessel will be renamed Cat hours and that service will begin around June 15, following a refit in South Carolina.There is still controversy over whether the ferry will be allowed to carry trucks desired by Nova Scotia businesses but opposed by the City of Portland.
