A QUICK RECAP OF 2015
The Sting as an organization had a very successful 2015 both on and off the rink.
On the rink - we fielded 5 teams (U13, U15, JV, Snipers (Varsity) & Titans (Varsity)).
- U13 had a tremendous season. They won the gold during the regular season and took silver in the Bay Area Revolt tournament. Their development and growth will
be the future of the Sting for years to come.
- U15 continued their dominance. The bulk of this team has played box lacrosse for several year - and that showed through out the season. They won gold medals
in both the regular season and the Bay Area Revolt.
- JV - This was our first year fielding a true JV team. Their Win/Loss record was not indicative of their development. For many, it was their first experience
in box lacrosse and by the end of the season things began to click.
- Snipers - this was their first season in box lacrosse. The team came together quickly and figured out the game. They went on to win the gold in the regular
season and showed extremely well in the Bay Area Revolt.
- Titans - this was their second season in the league. A depleted team had a tough playoff round - but rebounded to win gold at the Bay Area Revolt.
A big highlight of the season was Mark Matthews' week long visit and the time he spent with the players at their practices and coaching the teams at the Bay Area Revolt.
Off the rink - the Sting made a concerted effort to 'give back'. We raised awareness of Rett Syndrome at the Bay
Area Revolt and donated more than $3600 to the charity. Thank you Sting families for your continued support.

It is only fitting, that on day Wes Berg led the Denver Pioneers to the NCAA National Championship, that the
Sting would continue their domincance in northern California. The Sting had 4 teams entered into the Bay Area Super Series - which allows field teams to play real box lacrosse as a year end
At U11 - the Sting battled and were able to beat their nemesis 9-6 in the gold medal game. The team came
together and played a complete game to win the gold.
At U13 - the Sting continued the success that they experienced as the Scorpions - and went undefeated in the
tournament as they beat South Marin in the Gold medal game.
The U15 team together progressed as the tournament went on - and battle hard losing a close bronze medal
The JV team worked hard throught out the tournament. They set themselves up to win the gold - but faced
a number of injuries and were short maned as they lost in the bronze medal game.
All in all - a great weekend of box lacrosse.
U13. This was team was the only team in the league (at any age level) to go undefeated. They
started off slow in the first period - but then got their feet under them and rolled to a comfortable 15-5 victory. The goal totals for the season were 115 (Goals for) and 19 (Goals against).
The future looks great for this group of kids. Congrats on a dominating season.
U15. The season started off slow for this team but once they figured out how to work together - the
clicked. The finished the regular season 4-4 but came to play in the championship. The dominated yesterday winning 10-1.
U15 JV. This team battled hard all year. Their only loses came at the hands of the team they were
facing in the championship game. The game started close - however as we moved into the 3rd period they were able to pull away with a 11-6 win. This is a group of players who grew together
and learned how to play tough tough, team defense.
Varsity. This team was clearly the most talented and most physical team in the league. The
physical nature left them playing short handed for much of the first 2 periods yesterday - and they found themselves losing 6-3 with 4 minutes left. They battle hard to tie the game and almost
won in regulation. Being tied 6-6 at the end of the game left us in a shootout where they scored on the first 2 shooters while Vaclav Harvey stopped the first 2 shooters leaving them with a 7-6
victory. A special shout out goes to Vaclav for a truly dominating championship game. Easily the game MVP.
Not all lacrosse is created equal. There are two main types of lacrosse: Field and Box. Field is the most common game (played on a large field with 10 players per side). Box
lacrosse is an edgy, fast paced and more exciting game. It is played in a thawed hockey rink with similar rules to hockey. Think of hockey combined with basketball combined with lacrosse.
5 players and a goalie per side. A 30 second shot clock. Tiny 4' by 4' nets protected by a goalie who is paded up more than a hockey goalie. It is a sprinters game with non-stop
action. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about joining The Sting.
