The German Lacrosse Association is looking for a head coach and several assistant coaches for the German U19 men’s national team �” all positions are on a voluntary basis. The German U19 men’s national team will participate in the U19 men’s world cup in Turku, Finland, in August 2012. Until then several try-out-camps and practice-camps will take place. The full camp schedule will be announced in the next few weeks. However, the next try-out camp will be held in Hamburg on the 26th and the 27th of August.

Requirements for the coaching positions:

* Several years of coaching experience in men’s or juniors’ (U19) lacrosse
* Availability in August 2012 (exact tournament dates have not been announced, yet)
* Language requirements: German OR English native speaker; English fluent
* International lacrosse coaching experience would be desirable

Evaluation process:

I am the DLaxV Director of Men’s Lacrosse and therefore I am responsible for the appointment of the U19 men’s national team coaches. So, please, send your application to wolfram.greb@dlaxv.de. Your application should include your resume and a cover letter concerning the reasons why you want to become a coach for the German U19 men’s lacrosse national team. I will then evaluate all applications together with the general manager of the team, who I will announce in the next few days. After that I will invite the best applicants to telephone interviews. The coaches of the U19 men’s national team will be nominated based on the result of these interviews.

It would be great if the whole coaching staff would already be complete by the time the next camp takes place. However, as the time frame until the next camp is very short and as the decision is a very crucial and important one, we will definitely not rush any decisions.

Kind regards,

Wolfram Greb
DLaxV Director of Men’s Lacrosse

Karlsruhe Storm Sevens Tournament a success

The tournament started at 11 am on Saturday on the practice field of the Karlsruhe Storm with the match Karlsruhe versus the Bretten Wardogs.
Throughout the next 10 hours 22 games were played. Although the games were only 20 minutes long and on a 70 yard field the stamina of each player was fully tested.

The tournament favorites the Stuttgart Kickers won all eight of their matches beating the Dresden Braves in final 7:2 under the flood
lights.  The 160 minutes of high intensity Lacrosse for each team in one day was capped off by the player’s party, which lasted until sun-up on Sunday.

The atmosphere of the tournament is what Lacrosse is all about: playing hard, respecting the game and having fun.  The short field and modified rules worked extremely well. The most positive result of the day is the
bitter rivalry between Karlsruhe and Stuttgart is only on the field. When the game is over, the hatchet is buried and the keg tapped.

The tournament’s tenacity award went to Stuttgart’s Eric Heintze (#21). The
Goal-Getter award went to Dresden’s Andreas Stolper (#89) with 15 goals in
eight games.

Results

1. Stuttgart Kickers 8-0

2. Dresden Braves 5-3

3. Bretten Wardogs 2-5

4. Karlsruhe Storm 3-5

5. Kurpfalz Tigers (Mannheim/Heidelberg) 1-5
