John Wiseman - Wilton H.S Listed below are the uniform assignments for the Daniel Hand Lacrosse Jamboree on Saturday, March 27, 2010. I have also enclosed a schedule of scrimmages for the day. Reversibles are OK as long as they have numbers, at least, on the back of both sides. However, the officials prefer using numbered jerseys if possible. This year we will employ a balanced schedule of three scrimmages for all teams. After each round played each team will have the next round off. The good news is that you should be well rested, the bad news is that you should consider organizing your meal breaks very carefully because they will be limited to only 55 minutes.

Team Price is $11 per SS shirt($13 XXL)and $13($15 XXL) per LS. Will need your order no later than March 12. Prices at the event will be $15/$16 and $17/18. And we cannot guarantee availability on Saturday. All entry fees and insurance certificates have been received. Thanks to all for the help in getting this taken care of. We tried to accommodate everyone’s wishes with regard to the schedule but could not accede to every request because of the need to keep teams away from one another who play in the regular season, scrimmage or possibly playoffs. Remember that first scrimmages begin at 9:30AM. Coaches/Officials meeting begins in the main information tent at 9:00AM SHARP. You can pick up a dozen complimentary game balls at this meeting. Please take special note that we will be instituting a ZERO TOLERANCE policy this year from extraneous talking during play. The officials will elaborate on how things will work at the coaches meeting so please make an extra effort to be there and ask any questions. Officials will be holding a very firm line on what is acceptable behavior. Please talk to your players, assistants and spectators in advance about this. Failure to heed to admonitions of an official will result in immediate action against those participants. Unruly spectators will be asked to leave. There will be a concession stand serving coffee and pastry in the morning and hot dogs/hamburgers and soda for lunch - See you on March 27!

Since 1980 the Daniel Hand Tigers have begun each lacrosse season with this event. The Jamboree pits 16 top boys high school teams from Colorado, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey and New York against one another in a round robin format of 24 scrimmages. This year’s field includes five championship teams from last year: Canandaigua, 2009 New York Class B State Champions, Duxbury, 2009 Massachusetts Division 1 State Champions, Bridgewater-Raritan, 2009 New Jersey Group IV Champions, Summit, 2009 New Jersey Group II and overall State Champions and Ridgewood, 2009 New Jersey Group III Champions. Also returning this year are Corning East, 2009 New York Class B Section IV finalists, Mountain Lakes, New Jersey Group I semi-finalists, Wilton, 2009 Connecticut Class M Finalists, New Canaan, Connecticut Class M quarter- finalists, Medfield, 2009 Eastern Massachusetts Division 2 finalists, Winchester, 2009 Eastern Massachusetts Division 2 semi-finalists, Northport, 2009 New York Section XI quarter-finalists and West Genesee, who were New York Class A Championship Section III Champions in 2009. Cherry Creek, 2009 Colorado State semi-finalists return after a respite as does Syosset, New York Section VIII Class A Semi-finalists . DANIEL HAND HIGH SCHOOL 30th ANNUAL LACROSSE JAMBOREE MADISON, CONNECTICUT March 27, 2010 MEN'S DIVISION GROUND RULES ALL scrimmages will consist of two 30 minute halves. Teams will change goals at halftime after an intermission of 5 minutes. There will be 10 minutes allotted between scrimmage sessions to change fields. ALL scrimmages will be RUNNING TIME. The central clock WILL NOT STOP for any reason after each set of scrimmages begins. A central horn will start and stop all scrimmages. No team time-outs are permitted. Penalties will be assessed in the normal manner. Penalty time will be kept on each field at the scorer’s table. Time served will commence when the offending player reaches the penalty box and be running time until the penalty time has expired. The Home team for each scrimmage is designated in CAPS on the schedule. The Home team will be responsible for keeping penalty time while the Visiting Team will supply game balls. All substitutions will be ON THE FLY, governed by the rules for special substitution, i.e., one man at a time entering the field of play as another exits the field through the special substitution area. 2010 H.S. Federation rules are in effect for all scrimmages. The only exception will be that substitutions will be allowed on balls out of bounds on the end line. Zero tolerance guidelines concerning acceptable behavior both on the field and on the benches and sideline will be in effect. Details will be provided at the meeting before things start. Coaches are physically allowed on the field in scrimmage situations and coaches will be allowed to stop play for instruction. This does not preclude individual communication with single players during play adjacent to the coach’s area in the field of play as long as such action does not interfere with play. While officials will not penalize coaches for being on the field of play the expectation is that coaches will be responsible for sideline control of players on the bench. We will again supply each team with a dozen lacrosse balls to be used during the day. These will be distributed at the coaches meeting at 9:00AM in the main information tent near the parking lot.
