2021 Lacrosse at Home - Announcing Cohort Leaders
Submitted By Amy Burkholder on Friday, April 16, 2021
Firstly, we would like to remind everybody that tomorrow is April 17, the deadline to register.  

With stay-at-home orders and virtual learning, a current part of players’ lives, North Perth Lacrosse wants to promote a healthy and active lifestyle, as we continue to prepare for the 2021 season. 

As described in our RTA, we are encouraging our players to begin their individual lacrosse training at home as per Stage 1.  This will last for approximately 2 weeks before moving into stage 2 where players can begin working with a partner from the same household.  For more detail be sure to read 2021 League Modifications in our 2021 RTA section.

 
 
We have divided players by age into the following cohorts, U22/U17, U15/U13, and U11/U9.  Each cohort has an assigned leader and an executive rep.  Cohort leaders will provide players resources to help them with their at home training and are available to answer any questions related to lacrosse.  Executive reps are available to answer any parent questions.  
 
For U22/U17, our cohort leader is Pete Verbeek.  Pete has been coaching with the Outlaws for over 10 years, and is one of our most experienced and successful coaches.  Pete coached the 2019 midgets, 2018 bantams, and 2017 bantams to provincial championships.  Most returning U22 and U17 players will be familiar with coach Pete.  Our executive rep for this cohort is Werner Frey.
 
We will be announcing our U15/U13 cohort leader shortly, as we have yet to confirm this position.  Our executive rep for this age group is Nikki Vernon.  
 
Bradley Brough has volunteered to be our cohort leader for U11/U9.  Bradley began his lacrosse, playing with the Outlaws and went on to play Jr C with the Wilmot Wild.  He has assisted with some of our youngest teams in recent years and is familiar with many players in this age group.  Our executive rep for U11/U9 is Brenda Schiestel.
 
Players can begin training at home at any time.  Cohort leaders will be in contact with registered players shortly after registration has closed.  It is North Perth Outlaws goal to ease players back into the sport with a staged progression which will keep players active and enthusiastic about the upcoming season.  This will also keep us ready for a smooth transition into in person practices and modified game play, when public health restrictions permit.
