We look forward to seeing everyone in two weeks at the Courtyard-Marriott in Devon for the Meet and Greet. Lunch will be provided and we’ll start at 11:00am. At 11:00am we have a couple of speakers to address the group about Villanova Athletics as well as the growing Alumni support. By 2:00pm we will be wrapping up so everyone can head over to the football game if they wish. The lacrosse tailgate at the football game will be a light version since we will have just finished eating.
Alumni Game Weekend:
The Friends of Villanova Lacrosse (FOVL) Alumni Assoc will be holding its initial mentoring event for our players & their parents before the Alumni game on 9/29 on Campus. This mentoring will be set-up by tables according to career disciplines. It will be held from 9:30 am to 11 am.
Following the mentoring session, the FOVL AA will be holding their annual fall meeting from 11 am to 12:30 pm. All are invited to attend.
After the FOVL AA meeting, the Alumni will tailgate at their usual spot behind the Stadium from 12:30 pm to the 2 pm. The alumni hold a separate pregame tailgate to assure compliance with NCAA rules. Our families will get a chance to combine with the alumni at the postgame tailgate hosted by the Villanova coaching staff.
Alumni game starts at 2:00 and will feature a game between the our current team and recent alumni players.
The coaches will be hosting the tailgate for both the alumni and team families after the game. We will bring the desserts and drinks and the signup sheet is revised to reflect these items.
We will be playing our fall scrimmage on October 6, 2018 at 1:00PM vs. Loyola University. The game will be played at the Ridley Athletic Complex in Baltimore, MD. Cathleen Kinnear is working on the tailgate plans. The tailgating rules at Loyola might limit us to a grab and go for the team and we are investigating local establishments for pre and post game options. We will have specifics clarified and sent out soon.
