Silent Week
Submitted By reno on Friday, May 31, 2019
This coming week Zone 8 celebrates Silent Week.  This is a week devoted to the game.  Zone 8 Executive are asking that fans in the stands find creative ways to quietly cheer on their teams.  Last year siblings made signs, clapping was the only sound heard in one arena and in another the parents cheered on the OTHER team in a show of support.  
This week is to show respect.  To the players, to the coaches, to the REFS and to each other.

A letter from our CMLA President

"Dear Cambridge Lacrosse members.

Our Zone has decided to expand on the highly successful Silent Night that we all participated in last year and do Silent Week which will be held June 3-7.  For those that don't know what this is, its a week where fans attending all games are asked to refrain from verbal comments directed at coaches, players and refs.  Fans are encouraged to cheer, whistle, and find other creative ways to cheer on our teams.  I remember the first time I witnessed a game like this and thinking that this is silly, but actually it allowed me to appreciate the game in a completely different way.  I was able to hear the kids communicating with each other, the coaches interacting with the players and the refs communicating with the players and bench staff.  These are all things that I really don't notice during a typical game when fans are communicating (positively and negatively) to people participating in the game.  It honestly gave me a new level of appreciation for the game and its participants and how much communication happens on the floor during a game. I've included a letter from our Zone Director which speaks a little more about the intent of the event.  Please take this opportunity to experience the game in a different way that shows respect to all of the games participants.  

See you in the rinks next week! 

Yours in Lacrosse.
