FEBRUARY 2021

REBS '22

REBS COMBO

REBS '23

The Rebels 2023 Team had a productive month (outside of the SNOW DAYS!) We look forward to getting outside this month and spreading out!  What we learned and worked on:

  • Ball faking, shot power, and release points
  • Interior hands and catching inside the 8
  • Our handles, our handles and our handles!

Our Player of the Month is Alina Maciorowski from Centennial High School!  She had a tremendous month and her stick skills are getting better every day!  Super proud of the work she has put in! ~Coach Haight & Coach Stuart

REBS '24

REBS '25

The 2025s had a strong month of February! We cannot wait to get outside and get into some full field activity. This month, our team challenge has been a running challenge where the girls send in their run times! The girls have worked hard this month on:

- Faking our shots and getting more power behind our shots!

- Live game play build up with 1v1s to 4v4s to work on smaller aspects of the game before implementing them in full field.

- Good defensive communication - being loud and consistent - through man-down situations!

Player of the Month: Elizabeth Stogner!

Elizabeth is a constant presence in practice that is always asking questions to improve her game. Her stickwork has improved tremendously. In our team challenge he has tackled it hard! We coaches are very proud of Elizabeth!

- Coach Emily and Coach Carley

REBS '27

The Rebels 2027s have been continuing to work hard to build their foundation as great all-around players!  Off the field, they continue to work on their mental game and set weekly goals to grow their long-term mental skills and become the best student-athlete they can be.  On the field, they have been working on their stick skills, game sense, and have shown great improvement in their teamwork, especially in 7v7s!

Our 2027s Player of the Month is Audrey Erxleben!  Audrey has grown her game mentally and physically.  When she's not at practice, she's constantly assessing and improving her capacity for organization, self-motivation, and several other "foundations of a championship" mentalities; she's also constantly working on her stick skills and game sense.  At practice, it's obvious her foundational skills have been improving tremendously!  Congrats, Audrey!

REN '24

Renegades 2024 had a very productive February working on the following:

  • Small sided play with interesting "rules" to encourage touches and creative stickwork/shooting
  • Two-man game concepts both offensive and defensively
  • Mastering slide packages with an emphasis on communication
  • Introducing new tricks to help develop dynamic stickwork

Player of the Month: Delaney Sheridan!

Delaney is always a ball of great energy. She is so positive and makes her teammates better every time she hits the field.
Coach Haight "super - hard worker at High School Skills Clinic" 

REN '25

Even with quarantine and snow days, the 2025's worked hard this month! We worked on...

  • Improving our fitness (strengthening that core, baby!).
  • Getting a faster release and less cradles through wall ball competitions.
  • Strengthening our understanding of small-sided aspects of the game.

February Player of the Month: Nicole Malasky!

Even though Nicole has been out for a few weeks with an injury, she never stopped working hard on her fitness and skills. When she rejoined us for practice last week, she didn't miss a beat. We love her work ethic!

RENEGADES 2028

The Renegades Girls worked hard on our close in game in the Performance Barn.  We also we picked up a new coach (Taylor Sindall, Frostburg Head Coach) and two new players!

The Girls also let their artistic side shine as they completed a service project making over 100 Valentines for the residents of the Buckingham's Choice Senior Living Community.  

We are looking forward to getting back outside in March as we prepare to play in the NGLL.

Player of the Month:  Finley Beaver

'Though she be but little she is fierce' is a quote from Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream that describes Finley just as well as it applied to Hermia.   Be warned defenders, Finley’s play when redefending is just as assertive as her play on offense when headed toward the goal!

RENEGADES JAN '21

January 2021 can only be defined as progress for Renegades LC! This month we added multiple new members to our coaching family and kicked off our RLC (Rebels/Renegades) speaker series. We are very excited to welcome Coach Catherine Sims (2023) and Coach Taylor Sindall (2028). 

Florida Alum, USA Team Member, and American Univ. Asst. Coach, Lindsey Ronbeck, joined over 70 players this month to talk about her experience with body positivity. Although virtual, the night was so impactful!

This month we also rolled out our Player of the Month initiative. POMs exemplify leadership, coachability, a teamwork mentality and GRIT. Congratulations to all the nominees!

We look forward to hosting both youth and high school trainings in February and gearing up for the unveiling of our 2030 coaching staff! GO RENEGADES!
