A Message from Mike McKenney, AYL Head Trainer

(Ed note: The below message is from Mike McKenney, Founder of Summit Athletics, the league's sports medicine provider. Mike has worked extensively in the sport with Desert Vista, Grand Canyon University, as an advisor to leagues at all levels, and is also a proud AZ lacrosse dad.)

Dear AYL Families, Players, Coaches, 

My name is Mike McKenney and I, along with my colleagues, will be the Athletic trainer(s) for the AYL lax season 2016.  I may have met some of you over the last few years as I served the league in this same capacity. 

 Please let me briefly state our role as licensed athletic trainers:

1.      Recognize, manage, and treat athletic injuries in conjunction with and under the authority and guidance of Dr. Matt Anastasi & Ian Mcleod PA-C of Dignity Health and Dr. Destin Hill of ASMC.

2.      Emergency medical response: splinting, wrapping, bandaging wounds, etc.

3.      Provide preventative injury strategies: taping, icing, stretching, etc.

What this means is that if your child/athlete suffers an injury while participating in a weekend game with the AYL we are there to help.  You can find us each Saturday on the fields while games are being played.  We often are on the move between fields managing different injuries/illnesses, but can usually be found in the middle of all the playing fields at the different parks where we will be playing.

Phoenix, AZ--  The Arizona Youth Lacrosse League (AYLL) is proud to announce the addition of the Phoenix Lacrosse Club (PLC) as its newest member to the League.
Club co-founders, James Fishman, Arik Michelson, and Jim Lofton, recognized the need to expand the lacrosse footprint in the Phoenix area thus attracting new players for development towards high school participation.  The affiliation of Phoenix Patriots Lacrosse and Arcadia Dragons Lacrosse to form the PLC will allow the new Club to field three teams in its inaugural 2014 season. Two middle school programs (Div 1 and Div 2) and an elementary 3/4th grade program will compete in the AYLL. Head Coaches will be announced shortly. Practices will occur under the lights at Arcadia High School.
The Club co-founders are excited to see the transition of the program to a vertically integrated model allowing K-8th grade participation. The Club will have a common philosophy across all age groups teaching good lacrosse fundamentals, while imparting age appropriate skills.  The founders have no doubt that the Phoenix Lacrosse Club will be recognized as the premiere program in the North Central and Camelback Corridor neighborhoods for preparing future Arizona high school lacrosse players.
