The Club invites you to sit by other patriotic, lacrosse loving families as we'll rally at the location shown below.

The Oro Valley Sports Alliance will be selling bottles of water to support OV Parks.  

We'd like to ask if some of our awesome club members would like to volunteer their time, selling water.  Please consider helping out our alliance provide a voice for us.

Become a OV Sports Alliance member - we already have one volunteer from OVLC, but would benefit from more...

The group will establish an Arizona Non-Profit Corporation that can accept donations and actively promote the build-out of Naranja Park and other facilities for youth, adult, and senior sports programs in the OV community.

The commitment would be participation in meetings this summer and fall - prior to a November bond election. It is anticipated that the organization will continue to exist - but likely with fewer meetings, etc.

Fred Narcaroti (fnarcaroti@ninyoandmoore.com) is currently sending out emails to people that are interested.  Please contact him (and include a OVLC board member to let us know) for more details.

OVLC is now an Associate Partner with the TUCSON STORM!

Integrated!

The Tucson Storm Girls High School Team is now PAIRED UP with the Oro Valley Lacrosse Club!

Coach Megan Sanicki, the current head coach of the Tucson Storm has agreed to become associate partners with the Oro Valley Lacrosse Club.  This strategic news starts another era of girls lacrosse for the Tucson area.  Now, girls from throughout Tucson can find a path to grow themselves and the sport of lacrosse from kindergarten to high school varsity lacrosse!

The Tucson Storm is a long standing team in the local Tucson area that has excelled to provide high school girls the opportunity to play lacrosse in the state of Arizona.  In their recent past, they've been the ONLY girls lacrosse team in Tucson.  Recently, they've been energized by a lacrosse alum of the game, Coach Megan Sanicki, who's bounded the team together to bring opportunities again for the Storm.

The Oro Valley Lacrosse Club has it's prestigious history, representing Oro Valley in lacrosse for many years.  Started as a boys high school team, it has molded itself to its environment, and now offers kindergarten through high school lacrosse in the Oro Valley and Amphitheatre school district area.  Just a little over two years ago, the Oro Valley Lacrosse Club had established a "girls only" team to give an excellent opportunity to young girls in the community to play "the fastest game on two feet".

With this strategic pairing, the Tucson Storm and Oro Valley Lacrosse Club, will provide the opportunity for girls to develop their skills from kindergarten, further fielding an 8U (8 years and under), 10U, 12U, 14U, and High School team in the same philosophy that OVLC and the Storm have:  Building strong girl's athletes from the ground up!  Currently, the OVLC sponsors a 12U team, coached by former alums of the Storm, Rachel Bowman and Megan Tetrick.  The Storm is rebuilding its high school team, after a strong group went on to college.

"This associate partnership gives an avenue for girls of Oro Valley to strive for the bigger goals of playing for each other for years to come!", Coach Doug Charters exclaimed.

The associate partnership will continue the groundwork done by Rachel Bowman and Tom Carr, President of the Tucson Youth Lacrosse League (TYLL).  Rachel is an advisor/member of TYLL.  "Growing the sport of lacrosse in Tucson continues to be our number one goal at TYLL and the girls side of lacrosse is just as important to our growth as the boys," Tom states.

The Oro Valley Lacrosse Club will see the benefit of this relationship the most at the start.  Currently, OVLC is the only club to offer girls lacrosse, but they encourage other lacrosse clubs to grow the sport with girls teams within their club.  OVLC's established board is fully supportive of administrative and potentially financial support of the Tucson Storm.

"I'd like us to see OVLC appoint a associate member of the Storm to our board," tells Doug Charters.  "This way we can fuse our opportunities to recruit girls at all levels."

The Oro Valley Lacrosse Club has been practicing with the Tucson Storm for over a month now and played scrimmages during the TYLL games at Rillito Park over the last three weeks in February.

OVLC's Girls' 12U team will travel to Phoenix to debut it's girls team in the Arizona Girls Lacrosse Association (AZGLA) sanctioned game on March 25th to end their season.
