Girls team finished the season 13-1 and the Boys team finished undefeated at 15-0. Sectionals begin this week for both teams, Boys Monday vs. Pelham and the Girls Tuesday vs. Lourdes. Both games are at home. The vast majority of both rosters came thru our program and are excited to be a part of the schools success.

All social distancing during games and practices is required, all bags need to seperated, no equipment sharing and each player must have their own water bottle.
Our protocols for playing will be different this year as well due to COVID-19 and the parameters set up by USLacrosse, the Hudson Valley League and the School District. Details will follow shortly. Everyone has to sign up with USLacrosse (https://www.uslacrosse.org/) click players tab on left and renew, sign up or check number, some players may be good thru this season.
Attached is the registration form. Due to not having ability to have registration at the schools due to Covid, please complete the form and email back. Further details on payments to follow as we are close to having the website accept payments. If you paid for the 2020 season which was cancelled and did not request a refund, that payment will be applied to 2021 dues. Additionally if any child wants to play we have scholarships available. We do not want any child to not play. We have equipment to assist as well.
Please forward to anyone who may want to sign up and has interest in playing. We are working with the schools to move the message through social media as well.
Games schedules are almost complete for the following age groups.
7/8 Boys will play approx. 9-11 games on weekends and one (1) Friday night game. Because the majority of this team will also be playing SH modified lacrosse the practice schedule will be minimal and will focus on the games mainly. Games for this group will start April 17 and the last game will be June 6.
5/6 Boys will play 12 games and the Edgemont Tourney if it is played. Practices for this group will be Mon / Wed / Fri (6:30pm or after Varsity sport completions) at the high school turf field. Games for this group will begin April 24 and the last game June 5.
3/4 Boys will play 9 games and the Edgemont Tourney if it is played. Practices for this group will be Mon / Wed / Fri (6:30pm or after Varsity sport completions) at the high school turf field. Games for this group will begin April 24 and the last game June 6.
1/2 Boys program will be dependent on the number of players who sign up. Games can be added for this group. Normally this group plays 2-4 games with the correct number of players. The ideal number of players is 8-10. Provided we have the right turnout, this groups practices will follow the 3/4,5/6 Boys schedule above.
Over the past several years the numbers have been low with the exception of the older group. Based upon the number of girls that sign up in each age group will determine the game schedule. Not knowing the exact number of girls playing has prevented us from scheduling games yet. Games can be easily scheduled with the correct numbers.
Regardless, Saturdays we will have 3/4 & 5/6 girls lacrosse practice and clinic at the High School field. Exact times are being worked out but will look to have for 2 hours in the approximate 11am-1pm time frame. These practices will focus on skills and the girls will scrimmage.
7/8 Girls will play games provided we have enough girls sign up. Because the majority of this team will also be playing SH modified lacrosse the practice schedule will be minimal and will focus on the games mainly. We have a tentative schedule. This group is welcomed and encouraged to the Saturday practices.
Please have the registration forms completed and returned.
If we have missed anyone feel free to forward email. The website will be update with this information along with our COVID protocols.

Trojan Lacrosse, Inc. is a non-profit organization. The costs to run the Trojan Lacrosse program each year come from donations from families and businesses as well was the registration fees paid by our participating families. These donations effectively help to subsidize the registration fees that we charge while allowing us to meet the significant fixed costs of a nearly year-round lacrosse organization. If we are forced to cancel all or part of the season due to COVID-19, we will make our best effort to refund registration fees on a pro rata basis based on the percentage of the season played/lost. However, we may not be able to do this fully given the fixed nature of our costs each season. If we are forced to cancel all or part of the season due to COVID-19, the Board of Directors will meet to decide what refunds can be issued without damaging the long-term viability of our lacrosse program.
GIRLS MUST REGISTER BASED ON AGE (NOT ALWAYS GRADE):

How to dress in private schools in England, USA and Switzerland
School uniforms are not necessarily the stakes in wool blend dresses and horrible aprons our moms wore (and caught some of us).Sometimes this is an indicator of status and a source of pride. What are the students of the best educational institutions in the world wearing?
Eton College, Eton, UK
Eaton is the most prestigious school in the world, where snobs and members of the world government are raised.Girls are not accepted there, so only male uniforms are assumed. An old-fashioned coat, morning trousers, a bow tie and the most extravagant waistcoat you can get your hands on. In the photo, you guessed it, Prince William in his school years.
Harrow, London, UK
Another old English school for boys, Eton’s eternal rival.Byron, Churchill and many other rich, talented and influential people studied here. They all had to wear top hats in winter and straw hats in summer as part of their school uniforms.
The Cheltenham Ladies’ College, Cheltenham, United Kingdom
Jane Austen, lacrosse and traditional pudding: In Cheltenham, boys are only admitted to the occasional formal balls.You will have to wear knee-length skirts (no pants) and green jumpers – actress Christine Scott Thomas still remembers them with nostalgia.
Tudor Hall School, Banbury, United Kingdom
A girls’ school, where not everyone is accepted: high academic performance and a good background are assumed.The school does not suffer from dry academicism, you can engage in theater, clothing design, music and sports: yachts and fencing are highly respected here. Shape: green plaid skirt, green blazer and soft blue jumper.
Convent of the Sacred Heart, New York, USA
The most prestigious school for girls in New York, where the heiresses of Vanderbilde, Nicky Hilton and Lady Gaga studied.Everything is very serious: French and Spanish from the first grade, Latin, all attention – to natural sciences and religious education.
After the end of the fourth grade, girls are allowed not to wear red and white checkered aprons over their uniforms, and for “matured” students it is always a great joy.
St.Bernard’s School, New York, USA
This New York boys’ school is over a hundred years old, and if your son has an artistic gift, then this is not a bad place. There is an excellent choir: it even performs at the Metropolitan Opera, they teach drama and the art of public speaking.
As for the uniform, there are options, however all blazers, shirts, polos and T-shirts must be labeled with the school.
Aiglon College, Chezières, Canton of Vaud, Switzerland
English standards of education against the backdrop of the Swiss Alps: the school was founded by an Englishman who liked everything in his homeland, except for the climate and, apparently, the traditionally separate education.
The uniform, respectively, is also similar to the English uniform of a private school: a dark blue blazer, jumpers, polo shirts, pleated skirts. The main difference: a very bright and colorful coat of arms.
Le Rosey, Rohl, Canton of Vaud, Switzerland
One of the most coveted schools in the world: a place where they learn to influence the fate of the world.It is not easy to enter here: there is a competition of more than 100 people for a place. However, the one who graduates from school will acquire knowledge and the best acquaintances.
By the way, the uniform at the Swiss school Le Rosey is white.
https: // www.7ya.ru/Bauskas iela 58A – 7RīgaLV-1004
Everything that I saw proves only one thing – a one-size-fits-all uniform disfigures everyone, the English, the Americans, the Swiss, and knowing our uniform, the Russians.Although their shape is clearly made from better materials than ours, it still does not take into account the individual characteristics of the figure. And only where there is some choice (a school in New York for artistically gifted children), everything looks great. What the opponents of school uniforms are talking about is to set the color, assortment, logo, finally, and give parents the opportunity to choose what is best for their children. In my daughter’s school, in principle, they did just that. As for the Soviet uniform, everything was also not so unambiguous, there were high-quality dresses, and interesting styles, and whoever wanted to sew it to order.So it all depends on the wishes and capabilities of the parents.
I think that we were very lucky – all school years my daughter practically did not have a school uniform. As a result, I could always dress her much cheaper and in better quality clothes. Now I can say that my daughter knows how to dress well (I don’t even buy things for myself without her advice). Probably, the lack of a school uniform played an important role here.
Yes, what TVM styles were, God.Try walking in the same style every day for a year. Again, do not forget about the deficit. And to order – it’s expensive.
Best of all is the complete absence of any form.

Berkhamsted School private British school | Study in England
Description of the school
Berkhamsted School is one of the leading private schools in the UK.The school is proud of its 475-year history and ancient traditions and is under the patronage of Queen Elizabeth II.
The school is located in the picturesque green and prosperous town of Berkhamsted, in the area of the Chiltern Hills, beloved by the British, and in close proximity to London. From the train station, located 5 minutes from the school, London Euston Station is 30 minutes by train, and Heathrow Airport is 40 minutes by taxi.
The school has children from 3 to 18 years old, but the boarding house is open this school year for boys from 13 years old and girls from 16 years old.In the next academic year, the school plans to start admitting girls from the age of 13 to the boarding school.
Berkhamsted combines both same-sex education (11 to 16 years old) and blended education for boys and girls (3 to 11 years old and 16 to 18 years old). The junior ward (up to 11 years old), the girls ward and the boys ward are located on different campuses in the city, about 10 minutes walk from each other. The dorms are about 5 minutes’ walk from the educational buildings.
Berkhamsted carefully selects its students upon admission.This very strong academic school achieves excellent academic results. In 2019, 69% of GCSE exams were grades 9-7 (previously A * to A). In the same year, the percentage of A * – B grades in the A-level exams was 79%. This is well above the average for British private schools.
Graduates of the school enter Oxford, Cambridge and such universities of the prestigious Russell Group as the London School of Economics, Durham, Warwick, UCL, Birmingham and others.
English as a Foreign Language
Foreign students of the school are expected to achieve a certain level of knowledge in English as a foreign language, therefore, lessons in English as a foreign language are provided to everyone throughout their studies. The cost of lessons today is included in the total cost of training.
Lessons are held for mixed groups on Saturday mornings.
High school students are being prepared for the IETLS exams.
Sports and physical activity play a key role in school life.Berkhamsted has been named one of the top 10 UK sports schools. Rugby, lacrosse, tennis are at a very high level at school. But a large number of other sports are also offered.
The school has excellent sports grounds and halls. Students have at their disposal 40 acres of playing fields, tennis courts, an indoor 25-meter pool, a gym, etc. Girls are primarily engaged in lacrosse, netball and tennis, boys – rugby, football and cricket.In addition, students are involved in athletics, cross-country running, horse riding, judo, golf, field hockey, rowing, swimming. School sports teams perform at both regional and national levels.
Theater and music
These are two more strengths of the school. Berkhamsted has a thriving music department. The school teaches to play all kinds of musical instruments: from the harp to the electric guitar. Teaching is conducted both on its own and by invited leading experts.School students have the opportunity to participate in performances by orchestras, ensembles and choirs.
Berkhamsted cherishes the traditions of dramatic art. The school’s 500-seat theater plays host to major productions such as Pig Todd, Les Miserables and Beauty and the Beast. Students in the last two grades of the school regularly perform at the Edinburgh Summer Theater Festival.
Fine art is a very important subject at Berkhamsted.Specialized subjects include engraving, sculpture, photography, ceramics and art history.
Building a future career
The school employs excellent specialists to help students navigate the choice of their future profession and prepare for entering the university. They organize career exhibitions, invite representatives of various professions to school, help prepare university applications, and much more.
The school has two cozy dormitories – one for boys and one for girls.Students live in a boarding house in rooms for one or two people, often with a shower and toilet in the room.
A distinctive feature of training at Berkhamsted is the flexibility with which employees approach students’ free time – they are given maximum freedom.
Please contact us for more information and assistance with admission to Berkhamsted School.
90,000 Kids Travel: How to Choose a Private American School
The older the child, the more often parents think about the issues of his further education and the quality of the education received.There are indeed a lot of options today: from specialized lyceums to boarding schools in other countries – and both have their pros and cons, which are sometimes difficult to understand.
So you want
so that your child is fluent in a foreign language, deeply engaged in disciplines that are really useful for his future, and therefore we are ready to send him to a foreign boarding school. But how to choose it?
No matter what the adherents of the Russian school education system may say, many parents of high school students cannot help but notice how much the educational load on children increases, how much non-core material has to be learned just for the sake of a good grade in a quarter.A child who is making progress in mathematics and exact sciences is forced to understand the intricacies of biology and chemistry, spending a huge amount of time on this, instead of concentrating on the subjects that will become the basis of his future specialty. And if you manage to do all the lessons for the top five, then there is absolutely no time for additional classes and sports!
The result is fatigue, stress and aversion to learning as such.
Many parents of high school students resolve this issue by sending their child to a foreign boarding school.There are, of course, many advantages here: firstly, all the child’s attention and strength is concentrated on 6-8 specialized subjects in which he is making progress. True, here we must immediately make a reservation that mathematics is obligatory for everyone, even for desperate humanities. Secondly, the boarding school solves most of the organizational and pedagogical problems and gives the student the opportunity to play sports and their hobbies at a fairly professional level – and all this on campus (how much time do your children now spend on the way to school and sections?) …Thirdly, a clear schedule and discipline, which is very difficult for our families, and at the boarding school, children are constantly busy, and they have no time to spend time at the computer. In the morning study, in the afternoon circles and sections of interest or sports, in the evening discussions, school of leadership, joint games and communication. The academic year is spent with maximum benefit!
But even if you decide to send your beloved child to another country, the most important thing remains – to decide on an educational institution where your child will spend time with benefit and comfort.How to make the right choice of school? One idea of the education system in a particular country is not enough, just as colorful advertising booklets of boarding schools will not give an objective picture. I tried to understand this issue together with the specialists of the Star Academy academic mobility agency.
7 tips for choosing a private school abroad
In the choice of a foreign boarding school, as a rule, three countries are in the lead: England, the USA and Switzerland. Today I will tell you the details of teaching in private schools in the United States.
1. Make a list of schools
Do not choose a school based on websites, advice from friends, or lists from advertising agencies. You are preparing to send the most precious thing – your child – and mistakes can cost you dearly. The school is chosen for a specific child, based on his characteristics. The school should help the child adapt to an independent life, be responsible for the result and go to university. Remember this. When browsing the ratings, keep in mind that you will never find information about the atmosphere of the school, about the professionalism of teachers, about traditions and discipline.Ratings can only give a partial understanding of where the school is based on the results, but how these “peaks” are reached – the ratings will not show you.
2. Make up the criteria for choosing a school that are important for your family
These criteria can include many nuances. To determine what exactly your child needs (and you for peace of mind for him), highlight the most important points for you:
– the prestige of the school and the place in the ratings;
– strict discipline and adherence to school traditions;
– convenient location;
– joint or separate training;
– the size of the school and the number of students;
– religious customs of the school;
– the strengths of the institution: the presence of a certain kind of sport, art, creativity, and more;
– the number and choice of additional classes;
– statistics of admissions to various universities.
3. Narrow down the list of schools to 3-5 based on your criteria and discuss them with your child
This is a very important step, because no matter how much we want to choose the best, it is up to the child to learn and live in school, and it is important that the choice of school meets his expectations. Review boarding websites, videos and photos with your child, student reviews and other information from alternative sources.
4. Analyze your child’s academic achievement and review the admission requirements of the selected schools
At this step, you will need the help of a professional consultant from an educational agency – you can study all the requirements of the school and read its catalog to holes, but make a minor mistake in the registration form and waste time by missing the application deadline.A professional consultant will help you draw up several registration forms at once, which will guarantee admission to one of the selected schools. In addition, the consultant will be able to correctly prioritize work with the educational institutions of your choice, and this significantly increases the chance to receive an invitation from several schools at once and make a choice.
5. Visit schools
After you receive invitations from schools, schedule a visit with your child.Chat with the principal, get to know the teachers and students to make the final decision – after all, the school, its staff and students will become a second family for your child for several years. Feel free to ask questions regarding not only education, but also accommodation, games, joint activities and leisure. Such trips are also not always convenient to carry out on their own, but, for example, Star Academy organizes such tours for all interested parents.
6. Prepare for tests in advance
One of the stages of admission to school is taking a test and writing an essay.Test items are usually standardized – these are SAT, IELTS, TOEFL and others, but they must be passed successfully. Don’t wait for a response from schools – start preparing ahead of time. After receiving invitations, you will not have enough time to prepare your child for good results.
Choosing a school, preparing your child for the entrance tests and taking a sightseeing tour of schools are very time consuming. I advise you to start choosing a school at least one year in advance of your expected admission date.Please note that prestigious institutions draw up a list of future students for many years to come, so your key to success is timely and competent planning of your child’s future.
The Old and New Worlds offer a variety of educational institutions for all tastes, and yet US private schools are considered the most progressive and responsive to the changes in the world. If in a traditional English boarding school, age-old traditions that are alien to our children prevail, then American schools are more flexible in their educational and upbringing programs.In addition, the conditions of study and living in American schools are much more modern and comfortable and do not create discomfort for a child who is accustomed to good living conditions at home.
