EMLCA – Post Schedules to MaxPreps

Hello EMLCA coaches: Your ADs are likely aware by now, but the MIAA tournament committee wants 2019 boys lacrosse Varsity schedules posted to MaxPreps. It’s likely your AD will do this for you (the Lexington AD is posting mine, for example), but you need to make sure it is accurate. And then cross-reference your Varsity and Sub-Varsity schedules with all outlets; especially check that your schedule on the referee site, arbitersports.com, is accurate.

Meanwhile, the list of games and coaches needed has really grown. If you no longer need to be on that list, let Dave Walsh know (golexlax@gmail.com). If you need games or scrimmages, see the list and try to connect with those coaches.

Only three weeks away!
