Full Force Lacrosse – Fall/Winter 2012-13 Tryouts

Posted by Barry Marenberg on August 17, 2012

Full Force Lacrosse is planning to field Fall and Winter lacrosse 7th/8th grade teams for 2012-13.  We will be holding our tryout on Friday August 17 from 7:15-9:30pm at Snyder Avenue Turf Field in Berkeley Heights.  Please arrive at 7 PM for check-in and to receive your pinney.  There will be a $10 tryout fee to cover the cost of the field.  You must bring all your equipment and plenty of water. A make-up tryout will be held on Wednesdsay August 22 at Aircast field in New Providence for those who are unable to make it to the A
We realize that some players will not be able to play in the Fall due to commitments to other sports.  HOWEVER, if you plan to play for Full Force Lacrosse in the Winter, you must still attend this tryout. 
The tryout is open to any player entering 7th or 8th grade this Fall and is not limited to Chiefs players so please feel free (we actually encourage you) to forward this e-mail to any of your son’s friends in surrounding towns who may have an interest in playing for the team this Fall and/or Winter.  We hope to field a small and highly competitive team, and hope to have a large turnout from which to select the team. 
Our plan is to enroll the Fall team in the Rutgers league.  This league plays its games on Sunday afternoons/evenings between 5pm and 9pm on the Rutgers campus in Piscataway.  Games are not typically played on any other days and at any other location.  We do hope to hold a few local practices prior to the start of the game season. We are also considering entering the team in a Fall tournament.  For the Winter we will again enroll in the ISP indoor league up in Randolph.  The Force 7th/8th grade team won this league last Winter.
Once the tryout is complete, those who are informed that they have been selected will be provided with the information to register with the Rutgers league as a member of the Full Force Lacrosse team.  We anticipate that the fee for the Rutgers league will be $150 per player and we intend to order shorts and shooter shirts (we are searching for a cost effective package for the shorts/shirt).
We are very excited about the upcoming Fall and Winter seasons and look forward to seeing your son at the tryout.  Once again, check-in on on August 17th is 7pm and the tryout will commence at 7:15pm sharp.  We will, of course, have frequent water breaks and will have an EMT on-site.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email and we will respond as quickly as possible.  Full Force Lacrosse maintains a website at: so be sure to check it frequently for additional information.

Full Force Lacrosse 7/8 Wins 2012 ISP Winter Lacrosse League Championship

Posted by Barry Marenberg on March 4, 2012

The Full Force Lacrosse 7th/8th grade team that I coach along with John Shahpazian, Jim Slater and Richie Shahpazian won the ISP Winter Lacrosse Championship Last night against Summit.  It was a great game and an awesome way to end a very exciting inaugural winter team for Full Force.  We are very proud of all the Full Force players and hope they take what they’ve learned from this winter right into the Chiefs Spring season!

Great job boys!!

Coach B’s Full Force Lacrosse Winter Team Makes It To Finals!!

Posted by Barry Marenberg on February 26, 2012

Big news!!  

The Full Force Lacrosse Winter lax team that I co-coach with John Shahpazian defeated Tewksbury last night by the score of 9-2.  We are now slated to play Summit Gold on Saturday night (3/3).

The Full Force team played phenomenally well last night.  Every player on the roster contributed and the win was a complete team effort.  We are looking forward to a great Championship game.  All Chiefs  who are around on Saturday night are invited to come out and cheer us on!

Some Fall Lax Updates and Ramblings….

Posted by Barry Marenberg on November 29, 2011

For those of you in my area, Chiefs Lacrosse registration is now open for Spring 2012.   Go to and click the “Registration” link on the left-hand column.  After December 31st, late fees kick in so register now and avoid the late fees. 

The Chiefs will again be operating an online apparel/accessory store in conjunction with Thompson’s Sporting Goods.  New apparel will be going up on the site very shortly.  Please support the Chiefs and show your Chiefs pride by purchasing some of the great stuff being offered.

Many of our 7th and 8th grade Chiefs will be playing in the ISP Winter lax league as Full Force Lacrosse.  Our first game is THIS Saturday (12/3) at 9:30pm.  If you are not playing with us this Winter, we invite you to come on out and cheer us on.

I will also be co-coaching the New Providence High School lacrosse team in the ISP Winter League.  I’m really looking forward to working with these older boys. 

Busy winter!!  No matter what you are doing this winter and what sport you are involved in, be sure to keep a stick in your hands and stay in shape.   Spring is just around the corner….

See you on the field!  HONOR THE GAME!

After a week with no power, no heat, nothing –  it will be nice to get out to watch the BBL Elite 2017 Fall team play in the Fall Finale Classic – especially after last week’s Brandywine Classic was canceled.

Full Force Lacrosse also gets back to business on Sunday with a game against Sparta 7 at FDU.

Fall Ball redux….

Posted by Barry Marenberg on October 26, 2011

Heading to Toughkenamon, Pennsylvania on Sunday for the Brandywine Lacrosse Classic.  Zander’s Fall BBL team will be playing.  Should be a lot of fun.  It will be different for me to be in jeans and sweatshirt when I’m used to the flip flops and shorts at the summer tournaments!

Our Full Force lacrosse teams are doing really well in the FDU Fall Ball League.  My 7th/8th grade team is now at 4-1 with 2 games left.  Our 5th and 6th grade teams are also doing very well with winning records.  Full Force is now finalizing its roster for its 7th/8th grade winter team playing in the Indoor Sports Pavilion (ISP) league starting in December.  Lax all year round!
