AYLA Update 4-6-2019

Aloha Everyone!

Great turnout at last Sunday’s scrimmage!

AYLA volunteers have been working hard to fine-tune scheduling, field operations and other logistics to make sure things go more smoothly for this Sunday’s first games.

AYLA is 100% volunteer-run with no professional staff,

 so your patience is much appreciated.

If you can help us out, contact us! There’s always room for you!

A few updates:

1. Officiating Team – We have great team this year. Given our small league and teams with players of varying skill levels and mixed ages, our refs will be focusing on safety and fun. Rules will be adapted with coaches’ agreement and may be tweaked as season goes. Mahalo for your understanding!

  • Boys – Pete Morisseau is head of boys refs, along with Ethan “Murph” Murphy, “Puddy” Khemmanivong, and Bill Vanmanen.
  • Girls – Alex Kazlausky and Danya Hakeem are the lead girls refs, along with Sarah Cauthen filling in as needed. Contact, Meg Fosnock if you have any questions or concerns.

2. PHOTO Day is 4/14 Sunday – A schedule will be posted and your team parents will be getting more info soon.

3. Good Friday games 4/19 – New this season, we are having games on Good Friday afternoon. No games on Easter Sunday. Check the schedule at www.alohalax.org or the SI Play app for your game time.

4. Sports Illustrated Play smartphone app – Be sure to download on your phone. Players, Parents and Coaches can communicate quickest this way, and you can also check your game schedule and post pictures to share with your team. https://www.siplay.com/mobile-app

Passing of AYLA's Founding Father Rudie Schaefer

Aloha Rudie!

Good Morning friends,

It is with deep sadness that I report the passing of Rudie Schaefer last night at 7:44pm EST surrounded by family in Connecticut. The founder of AYLA and a patriarch of Hawaii lacrosse, Rudie left an indelible impact as a men's league player, lacrosse parent, coach, referree, and AYLA president for well over a decade since its founding in 2003. He will be greatly missed.

Please keep his family in your prayers as they go through this difficult time. We will share with you information regarding any future service/event planned in Rudie's honor.
