About the Fastest Sport On Two Feet:
The first sport of the United States, and the fastest growing sport as well, lacrosse is a "club" sport at Harry A. Burke High School. Freshman through seniors can participate, and everyone who is part of the team will get playing time. Lacrosse doesn't discriminate against size, or height. Anyone who picks up a stick falls in love with the sport. Our season is in the spring and can be played while participating in a sanctioned sport like track or baseball. We flex with the sanctioned sport schedules to get the most out of every player and help improve them as an individual. Along with our spring season, we also run practices and conditioning through the fall and winter for various tournaments that we participate in.
After a successful Summer Lacrosse season, the Bulldogs are rolling right into the school year with Fall Ball! These sessions will consist of practice on the turf, classroom/film sessions, and strength/conditioning sessions. Burke holds its fall program at the highest standards and is very valuable for integrating the new players into the program and building on our team chemistry. Contact us with any questions!
Burke Lax Gear
Burke Lacrosse will have an apparel store opened before the season. We are looking to haver an online store available September and January. Stay tuned to order gear! As for lacrosse equipment here in Omaha - Dicks Sporting Goods, Scheel’s, Play It Again Sports, and Off The Bench Hockey Shop are some great places that carry lacrosse equipment in the metro. There are always many sites online to take advantage of for equipment as well. If you have questions talk to the coaches.
Contact Coach Schneider for details.
Athletes: Take care of your bodies
As we enter the season make sure you are taking care of your body! You only get one of those! We went through winter training and began spring ball very quickly yet we must not forget to take care of the vessel that carries the lacrosse talent. Make sure to keep up on fluids and fuel your body with good things. No fast food, soda, or candy! The machine will produce the most power with the proper fuel.
With that being said, anyone who is INJURED:
Here is your checklist:
Ice and heat. Make sure to apply ice after and heat before use of ligament, muscle, or bone during the season.
Pressure, elevate, wrap - If you have a sprain or roll; make sure to apply PRESSURE with a wrap, while icing and heating, and elevate the injured portion of your body! Keep swelling down!
Epsom salt baths are extremely helpful.
IBUPROFEN! Always medicate when injured, but do NOT overdose.
See a medical professional.
Trainer, PT, Doctor. The body is a very complex machine. When something is not working correctly the body adapts and compensates, this can lead to additional injuries and delay your recovery.
