All West Camps and Summer Programs
Hi Chico Lax Nation,
We hope you are enjoying the Spring season. Before you know it summer will be here and your players will be asking, “What’s next Coach?”
We have a great selection of All West Lacrosse summer camps offered across Northern California so players can keep a stick in their hand in the off season and improve their skills.
Here’s what you can expect from All West:
We promote lifelong values of Respect, Attitude, Effort (our mantra RAE) through the game of lacrosse.
Amazing, professional coaching staff of scholar athletes committed to giving back to the NorCal lacrosse community. Last year included players from Duke, North Carolina, Dartmouth, Bryant, St Mary’s, Sonoma State, Cal and others which added to the excitement and learning process.
Premier lacrosse training - for beginners we put the ‘fun’ in fundamentals, and intermediate/advanced players will enhance their individual skills while gaining experience in game situations.
Day Camps for U9-U15 (beginner/intermediate), we have in your backyard on the following dates:
*Early Bird Special ends on May 2nd. Please take advantage of $35 OFF Day Camps and $50 OFF OvernightCamps!!! And don’t forget about the 8th Annual West Coast Showcase boys summer tournament July 12-13 in Morgan Hill - teams are filling up and we’d love to see you there too.
Please spread the word to your team and encourage them to work together in the offseason. We really appreciate your support and share the common NCJLA goal to facilitate the growth of youth lacrosse in Northern California.
Congratulations to the Boys' JV whose Friday Night Under The Lights game netted a shut out against Sierra Foothills with a final of 14-0.
Since Coaches Kehoe and Hertan have not been able to make contact with our Saturday opponents, Rancho Cotati, they have made the final decision to host one game today at 1:30 p.m. at Degarmo. Concessions will be available at this game with a nice selection of fresh fruit and sales will begin at 12:30 p.m. If you're in the area, come on out and watch the game! It promises to be a beautiful day and is a great way to kick off spring break.
Good luck to our U-13 team traveling to Roseville today for an 11:30 game against Woodcreek.

As of this posting, we still have not received word back from Rancho Cotati regarding the Boys' JV games Saturday. We will post here and to our Facebook pages once we have a confirmation. Presently we are operating under the assumption both games are a go.
We will have concessions at the Saturday games! Come stop by the stand where you can order Spirit Wear and purchase snacks and beverages.
Here's our offering:
Sodas (Coke, Pepsi, Diet Pepsi, Sierra Mist, Mug Rootbeer)
Our apologies for the mass emails over the course of the day. We hope you understand that we're doing our best to keep you apprised of changes as we are made aware of them so that you can plan accordingly.
All games scheduled for Saturday have been cancelled.
All Boys' Junior Varsity games for Sunday have been cancelled.
Chico State Women's game has been cancelled.
Chico State Men's game is still on, however it has changed to the Redding Soccer Park on Saturday, March 1st with a start time of 1:00 p.m. Same venue rules apply that did at the jamboree last week and re-stated below, including the entrance fee charge. Directions are posted below since the Boys' Varsity game against Petaluma will be held there on Sunday.
Girls' Varsity is still playing in Oakland this weekend.
No concession stand service or sales this weekend. Thank you to everyone who was scheduled to work and help out. Hopefully we will be able to resume with our plans for next weekend.
Show Your Spirit contest is suspended for this weekend. We'll do that when the weather is more cooperative and we are expecting a decent two-day turnout.
Boys' Varsity will still be playing, however there has been a venue change. We will be playing in Redding at the Soccer Fields where last week's jamboree was held. Note that we will be charged an entrance fee, albeit not quite as much as it cost during the jamboree. Same rules apply, no alcohol, tobacco in or around the park. No pets, food, or beverages outside of team snacks and water are permitted in the park. Lawn chairs are advised and shelter is permitted, however you are not allowed to stake it on or near the turf playing area.
At this time, Patrick Cook and his grandmother, Susan, are in need of a ride. If you are able to help, please see the post on the closed group page on Facebook or contact Kat at 521-4264 (since this post will be made public, we are not going to broadcast their personal phone number).
If you are in need of a ride or can offer space up for a player and his gear, there are a number of ways to make such arrangements.
One is to use the club's closed group page on Facebook.
Another is to log onto our site at ChicoRebels.com, then log into your account (see the sidebar at the left), next click on the TEAMS button at the top and select Boys' Varsity. Finally, select the ROSTER button on the left. If you do not log onto the site, you will not be able to view the players, their email address, or phone numbers.
Finally, you can contact Kat at 521-4264, Coach Schupp at (916) 207-6460, or Adrian at 521-6005 if nothing else is available to you (please use this option as a final resort, but also don't wait until an hour before we're supposed to be on the fields!).
Take Highway-99 north to I-5 north. Continue into Redding and exit onto hwy-44 east towards Lassen Park. At the exit, stay to the middle, then to the left of the ramp and continue onto 44-east.
Travel to Airport Drive/Oregon Trail. Exit and turn left at the stop sign. Continue on Oregon Trail approximately one mile. Entrance to the fields is on the left between two large soccer balls.
Google estimates this drive approximately 1 hour 20 minutes. Weather conditions and possible flooding will most likely cause delays. Please plan accordingly and travel safely.
Players are to be on the fields no later than 11, suited up and ready to warm up. Game time is at noon.
This past Sunday, April 14, as many of us were preparing for a day of lacrosse, the Chico Lacrosse Community tragically lost one of their own. Cary Smith, Chico State graduate, Wildcats Lacrosse Alumni, and High School Lacrosse Coach died in his sleep. Way too early for beloved eighteen's number to be retired.
Anywhere and everywhere you look on our player's Facebook pages, their teammates pages, the newsfeeds, Wildcats are growling and Rebels are yelling because most of us knew Cary and his penchant for the game. A number of our players found inspiration from Coach Cary and our coaches played with him "back in the day." As we are all wrapping up the season that he loved so much: lacrosse; this loss has hit us tremendously hard.
Cary's zest for life had no bounds and because of that, the Wildcats Men's Lacrosse team, Chico Rebels Boy's Varsity, and Boy's Junior Varsity teams are coming together on the Wildcats field during the Wildcats regularly scheduled practice time starting at 6 p.m. this coming Thursday 4/18. We're doing it For Eighteen, to celebrate his life and that which he loved.
We ask that the Rebels players and families arrange their schedules to come out to the field this Thursday between six and eight p.m. to honor Cary Smith's memory, celebrate his life, and offer support to the young men and women, some of whom are coaching are players, who are struggling with their loss. To do it for the team. To do it for the coach. To do it for the man who inspired so many of us.
Please help spread the word throughout the lacrosse community: Thursday, 4/18 For Eighteen, 6-8 p.m. Wildcats Lacrosse Fields.
Note: Updated 2/19/13 to include a link (see bottom) to a
Primer that explains how to set up your account and
control the communication settings for player and parent accounts.

About the PUBLIC / PRIVATE / ROSTER selections.
- Public means that this information will be posted in various sections of the website, usually along with the team roster, and is visible to anyone visiting the site. We highly recommend that unless you are a board member, team manager, or coach you do not select this option.
- Private means that only key personnel (coach, web administrator, select board members) are able to see this information. We do not recommend this for players as it prevents you from receiving information from fellow players and other people within the organization that need to share information with you.
- Roster means that when you log on and visit your team roster in the teams section, you will see your information and your teammates information they've elected to display. Guardian/parent information will also be accessible if the guardian/parent has elected for it to be made so. Board members, coaches, team managers, and others logged onto the system will also be able to see this information. We strongly recommend you select this option.
If you have any questions or experience any difficulties, you may contact us at any time by emailing
