Players and Parents,
We are very happy to announce that we have opened registration for Intrepid Team Selections for the 2014 Season. Team Selections will take place on December 7th at The Iceoplex at Soutpointe in Canonsburg. You will see specific report time listed below and all team schedules for the 2014 Season are also accessible on the Intrepid website by clicking on the Teams Tab along the top, horizontal menu. You can then use the right-hand drop down menu to select the team schedule you would like to view.
In response to feedback provided by families we have been able to make some improvements for the 2014 Season:
The Weekend Team Camp at Slippery Rock University for HS Travel players will take place a week later this year in an attempt to stay as far away from graduations and finals as we can.
The Weekend Team Camp has been added to the Team Evolution package along with the new requirement that players must attend Team Selections or have a minimum of two years playing experience in order to sign-up for that team.
Our Recruiting Package will continue to support players via meetings becoming available during a player’s sophomore year of HS as well as the new addition of online player profiles in 2014.
A welcome packet that will help families navigate membership in Intrepid whether it is their first our fourth year as different levels of programming have different elements that parents and players need to understand in order to have the best experience possible.
Expansion of the Intrepid Ambassador’s Program to allow for players to submit proposals for community service projects that we will assist them in them bringing to life. Our Intrepid Fallen Heroes 5K is a result of Intrepid’s focus on fostering leadership opportunities for our players and alumni. Many families have expressed a willingness to find ways they can support the Financial Aid Fund so we will be launching an online funding campaign so families can share our story with friends and family who may be interested in supporting The Fund.
A Free Clinic and Programming Open House for prospective Middle School level participants during Team Selections to move back to the heart of Intrepid’s mission when it comes to players entering 8th grade and below. We do not want to put players through the stress and anxiety of tryouts at such a young age when our real goals are to improve their skills, increase their confidence, and allow them to bond and build great team chemistry and friendships. After the free clinic and Programming Open House conducted by myself and other Board Members, families can then decide if our philosophy is right for them and confirm formal registration at that time.
Please feel free to reach out to me with questions about the 2014 Season or to attend our Parent Information Meeting on Sunday on the front steps of Sewickley Academy at 1:30pm. While the girls are practicing with their coaches, myself and some of our current Board members will discuss the different Intrepid Programming Options, the Intrepid Recruiting Package, Team Selections Procedures, and answer questions on both a group and individual basis.
Thank you for your continued support of Intrepid as we move into our 10th season in 2014!
The Intrepid Experience - What our members think...
“You have all done such a wonderful job helping our daughter become a better lax player and person. The experiences she has acquired through this outstanding club, staff, and teammates will last not only her, but us a lifetime. We can hardly wait for the fall.”
“I know it was a real "growth experience" for these kids, as they competed against teams with more experience and better fundamental skills, but it is that competition that will help our kids grow and understand how hard they have to work to compete at a higher level. My daughter enjoyed being part of your team and while she is really just starting to understand and learn the game, I think she has the ability to continue to improve and grow into a good young player. She gained a better understanding of how hard she has to work at the fundamental skills and it will be up to her (with parental encouragement!) to continue with that development in high school.
“You can have all the gimmicks and slogans and flashy stuff that you want, but in the end you have to provide results. We stick with Intrepid because they consistently get kids recruited and send them on to play at the next level. We know there are other options, but as far as we are concerned nothing gives our daughter the kid of exposure and coaching that Intrepid has demonstrated year after year.”
"This was our first year on Intrepid, and my daughter played on the 2015 Elite team, and the experience went beyond our expectations. The coaches were wonderful, the skills learned were invaluable, and the tournament experience gave my daughter confidence that she and her teammates could play at a very high level. Overall, our family was very happy with our experience and my daughter is ready for the fall practices and tournaments."

“The whole experience was wonderful from our stand point. My daughter made so many new friends, played so much better, and became so much more confident because of Intrepid. She can't wait until next year.”
-Middle School Parent
“The coaches are GREAT! Evolution was a great alternative for our family and even has my daughter thinking about Elite tryouts for next year!
“Becky, I wanted to say thank you for taking the time to talk to me about colleges and get me started on my spreadsheet and help my dream of playing in college come true. You do so much for your
players and there isn’t anything I can do to show how much I appreciate what you have done
for me and this team.”
