Parents & Family
UCSB women's lacrosse parent communication is available on the UCSB Women's Lacrosse Fan Page on Facebook. Trading e-mail addresses and phone numbers on the sidelines during games is also a time honored way to be able to get in touch with someone later too. Anytime you'd like to reach me please use email@example.com or call (805) 893-2204 to reach me in the office or (805) 636-6772 to reach me on my cell phone.
The families of our players are an important part of our program. We know the support our student-athletes receive from their family members runs the gamut of psychological to philosophical to physical. Family members are welcome at as many games as they can attend to show support for the team on and off the field. The phrase that a "program travels well" is often used in sports. UCSB Women's Lacrosse would like to travel well and have our fans outnumber our opponent's fans home and away.
The other component of support that can't be overlooked is the tailgate after the game. Home game and away game get-togethers following our contests, win or lose, are an important time for the players. After our athletes go all out in the game it's important for them to eat within 30 to 45 minutes of the strenuous activity. The best way is to have the post-game meal right at the field. Also important is the bonding everyone does during the tailgate. The post-game tailgate and the camaraderie that comes with it is important to the program. Parents use our UCSB Women's Lacrosse Fan Page to coordinate what they're bringing to the tailgate.
