Below is our practice schedule beginning Tuesday, January 9, 2018. Please note areas in red as they specify a change to our normal schedule. As soon as we get our game schedules (hopefully mid/late January) the spreadsheet will be updated to reflect our practice schedule changes. We will keep this sheet current so you can always refer back with questions.
Players, keep active over winter break, keep a stick in your hands, and practice wall drills when possible! This is our last week of fall practice before break. There is NO practice next week due to finals.
Enjoy your holiday and we will see everyone at the Alumni Game on December 26th!
Calling All Past and Present Desert Mountain Wolves Lacrosse Club Players!!!!

Hello Players and Parents of Desert Mountain Lacrosse Club,
It is hard to believe summer is almost over, our boys are headed back to school, and we will soon be kicking off our 2017-2018 lacrosse season!
We have lots of news to share but the most important is introducing you to our new Varsity Head Coach….a familiar face over the past three years with our JV Team, Zac Mendoza. It is often said that players don’t always make the best coaches, but if you have been to one of our games, you would have clearly seen that Zac is the exception to the rule. If that does not convince you…ask ANY player that has played with or for Zac. We have an amazing opportunity to enhance our program with a coach that not only has an incredible passion for lacrosse, but also one that played his high school lacrosse years right here at Desert Mountain!
We asked Zac to share his feelings about his new position and coming full circle with DM Lax....
"I am excited, proud, and honored to have the chance to coach a program I myself went through. Not many people get the opportunity to impact the lives of so many young men, and knowing I get to do so after being in their spot and shoes is something I'll cherish forever. This program has given me the world in terms of lacrosse, and I can never thank those enough who trusted and supported in me as both an incoming player and now as a coach to help guide this program to new heights. Things may change this year, but our goals have never been set so high."
And if that news is not exciting enough, we already have our fall practice schedule and fields booked through the Alumni Game, which as tradition dictates, will occur
on 12/26/2017. We will also participate again in Lax-4-Life, a charity event for pediatric cancer scheduled for December 9th, 2017.
So what is next? Once Desert Mountain announces the date for Club Rush, we will request players to help with sign-ups and assist at our DMLC Lacrosse table. Our kick off meeting that will be held in mid-September with fall practice beginning September 26, 2017. Additionally, to continue our support of the Red Bandanna Progam, we will announce a date/time to honor Welles Crowther at the Healing Field in Tempe during their 9/11 tribute. Anyone that would like to participate is welcome to join us. Stay tuned for updates regarding Club Rush, our Kick-off Meeting, and a visit to honor Welles.
Please let us know if you have any questions and we look forward to seeing everyone very soon! One final note to current players…we hope you have been talking to your friends and working on growing our program. As an incentive for our players, if you recruit any NEW players to our program and they sign up by January, you will receive a $50 check made out to the player responsible for the bringing the new player on-board!
We are “on the prowl” again this season…it will be a great year!!!!
