Cascade helmet all white

The Claremont Cougars Men’s Lacrosse Club has decided to upgrade our equipment by adopting the latest concussion-reducing helmet available: the new Cascade S helmet.

Although purchasing new helmets for the entire team will generate a bulk discount, the new gear will cost more than $9,000, which far outstrips the team’s available equipment budget.

In conjunction with adopting the new helmet will come a decision about the style of the new helmets. Here is where you come in. Every current player has received one vote on the new look, but the team is selling additional votes to help select the new helmet design. Every $50 donation to the helmet campaign will be worth one vote. Do you prefer the bold all-red design, the classic white/red look, or the clean white helmet?

You may purchase your votes and help the team adopt this new safety technology by going online at https://online.cmc.edu/mens-lacrosse-gift-page to make a donation through CMC. (Other methods of joining the campaign are detailed here: http://laxteams.net/claremontlax/page.html?page=1160.) You will be contacted by email once your donation is received to tally your votes by the August 15 ordering deadline.

Thank you in advance for supporting the team’s efforts to purchase the new helmets. We look forward to receiving your votes on the new look.

Scott Witkin Named Head Coach

The Cougars are pleased to announce that our assistant coach, Scott Witkin, has agreed to become the head coach starting immediately. 

Here is a link to more information about Coach Witkin's career:  Coach Witkin Biography

Claremont Lacrosse Head Coach Pete Ginnegar resigned at the conclusion of the 2018 season. The Cougars thank Coach Ginnegar for his dedication and leadership over the last 14 seasons. Pete Ginnegar will continue serving as the head coach of the Uganda National Lacrosse Team, and the Cougars send best wishes to Coach Ginnegar and the Cranes as they prepare for the 2018 World Games in Israel.

Team President Patrick Thomas CMC’19 noted that the Cougars are well positioned to transition to the leadership of Coach Witkin since he is a familiar force on the field and since only one senior, Desmond Goetomo CMC’18, is graduating this year.
