The goal of South Jersey Select Lacrosse is to offer student athletes throughout Southern New Jersey the opportunity to improve their skills, awareness, and athleticism. This will be accomplished thru clinics, camps, and summer showcase tournaments.
Congratulations to SJS Pink 15 for winning the Northern Rise tournament, defeating Capital by a 4-3 score to end their SJS career as one of the top teams nationally! They finished the tournament 6-0 and only lost one game all summer! All without UNC commit Gianna Bowe who was sidelined with a knee injury. Congrats to coaches Katie Duffey and Jess Loiseaux!
Congratulations also goes out to SJS Black 19 for winning the Grind tournament, coming back from a 4-0 deficit to beat the Connecticut Grizzlies 6-5! The girls went 5-0 for the weekend! Congrats to coaches Elizabeth Johnson and Nicole Troost!
Below is an updated list of parents who have agreed to be team parents for our 2014 summer tourney teams. We are still in need of team parents for SJS Pink 15, SJS Black 15 and our boys' team. Please consider volunteering for one of these teams!
As you know, we are hoping that each team will put together a basket for our highly anticipated SJS Club Social/Beef & Beer Silent Auction Fundraiser for Lax For The Cure. I have compiled spreadsheets for each team which include parents' names and email addresses. If you are a team parent (or are considering being one!), please email me at
and I will send the spreadsheet to you as an attachment so you can begin your team communications.

UPDATE: 9:38PM 11/28/13
We hope this email finds everyone doing well and getting ready for the Holiday Season! This is the time of year for giving so we are reaching out to you again to find it in your hearts to help Katie and the entire Kernan family through-out this very special Thanksgiving and Christmas season.
Please read just a part of the latest update on Facebook: Please go to: http://www.facebook.com/KaringForKatie
Katie is feeling o.k. now, as it is Wednesday and the effects of the chemotherapy are going away again. The medication made the side effects less uncomfortable, although for whatever reason, the weeks without the extra chemo drug (the Temodar) are worse than the weeks with it! The doctor feels it is because we are stronger on the steroids and the anti-nausea medications on the Temodar weeks.
The MRI to show her progress will still be held on November 29, 2013. However, the decision has been made that Katie must STOP the chemotherapy after the December cycle. She has lasted longer on this combination of medications than any other patient they have had (without complications and having to stop the treatment) However, it has taken its toll on her, and she can not tolerate it any more. We will have to wait for the results of the MRI and then allow her body to rest and her cell counts to go back up. The best part for Katie is that she will be on no medication while all of her friends are home for Christmas break.
Nov. 24th is a year since Mike's stroke, and the 27th is 10 months since Katie's brain tumor was discovered. We are leaving our house of 15 years in 2 weeks, and hoping that transition is as easy as possible considering the circumstances. So much in one year…
Happy Thanksgiving to all and enjoy your time with family. Please know that we are all giving thanks for the help and compassion shown to our family this past year. We truly value the prayers and support that have come our way.
If you are able to donate to “Karing for Katie”, it would be most appreciated. Anything that you can give would help significantly and make a difference. Katie is a true inspiration to us all so let’s make sure she has an amazing Thanksgiving and Christmas Holiday!
If you would like to help, please drop off a “Thinking of You” card with donation directly to Katie Kernan @ 4 Hampshire Way, Medford, NJ 08055. Katie loves receiving and reading the cards.
Thank you all for your prayers, love and continued support. It truly means so much to them. Please continue praying for Katie as she will need many prayers sent her way.
(Some gift card ideas: WAWA(gas/food), Shoprite, Murphy’s, Acme, WOK, Medford Bagel Shop, Illiano’s, Riveria Pizza, Rite Aid, CVS… or anything else you might think Katie will enjoy)
Please forward this email to anyone you know who is interested in helping. Forward their email to
to be added to our future list.
Wishing you all a wonderful Holiday Season,
Donna Smith Connie Nugent Denise Murphy
UPDATE: 2pm, 6/9/13
I am sure we can all agree that we are extremely proud of all of our SJS girls who represented their SJS family and all of South Jersey lacrosse so well at yesterday's Tournament of Champions final. None more than Shawnee Captain and Pink 13 player Katie Kernan though, whose prescence and leadership of her team all season is a source of inspiration to all of us and demonstrates the best that sports has to offer.
Thank you Katie for your bravery and the example you set everyday.
Thank you Shawnee for the example you set to all of our SJS players and to girls lacrosse players everywhere. You showed everyone what it means to be a TEAM and how to be there for each other when needed the most. You are all SUPERSTARS to every adult and every young player who has followed your season! You've made alot of people very proud!
Families, please see the link below, more gray bands have been made avaialble for a additional opportunity to help Katie and her family.
Bands are back! Get some and help Katie on her journey.
UPDATE: 10:30am, 3/8/13
PLEASE READ BELOW FOR INFORMATION WE JUST RECEIVED ON A KARING FOR KATIE SWIMATHON THAT WILL BE HELD TOMORROW, MARCH 9TH AT THE MOORESTOWN COMMUNITY HOUSE FOR KATIE! If you can swim even a few laps for Katie, please contact Coach DeNick at
for entry information!
Congrats on a great HS season and Good Luck to those of you just getting started. It was brought to my attention that a Senior from Shawnee High School, Katie Kernan, was diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer. Matt Schaeffer, her cousin(Moorestown Swim Team), wanted to do a Swim-A-Thon to support her cause. This event is happening at the Moorestown Community House on Saturday, 3/9 from 3 to 5 pm. It is open to swimmers and non-swimmer alike who would be willing to swim a few or many laps to support Katie.
Thanks for your help in advance,
Varsity Head Coach – Boys Swimming
Moorestown High School
UPDATE: 7pm, 2/7/13
A Facebook page has been set up to keep everyone up to date on Katie's progress and ways you can help suport her!
As many of you already have been made aware of, Katie Kernan, SJS Pink 13, a longtime member of our SJS family, has recently been diagnosed with a brain tumor. Katie is currently at CHOP in Philadelphia receiving treatment and is reportedly getting stronger everyday.
Many of you have reached out to ask what we, as her SJS family, can do to support and encourage Katie, and we will be posting information here regularly to update you on what you can to do help. For right now, the note below will be a good start. Keep an eye on this spot though, we will be sure to post other ways to show Katie your support as we receive information.
Mrs. Johnson, Mr. & Mrs. Knobloch
Katie's aunt, Linda Schaeffer, has also offered to be a drop off point to those closer to the Moorestown area. Her address is 724 Iron Post Road, Moorestown.
Everyone has been so kind in asking what they can do to help the Kernan family. We decided to collect various types of gift cards to help the Kernan family over the next few weeks. If you would like to purchase a gift card ASAP, place it in a Get Well card and write Katie on envelope and drop it off to Connie Nugent, 105 W Centennial Drive, Medford, NJ 08055 , Donna Smith (59 Natchez Trail Medford Lakes), or Denise Murphy (4 Wellington Court) it would be greatly appreciated. If you are unable to drop it off, please call (856) 912 4881 and we can arrange to pickup. When the Kernans are settled at home we will start meals and keep everyone posted.
If you know of anyone that has asked to help that is not on this email, please forward this letter to them and forward their email address to
. The distribution list will be updated and they will be on all future emails.
(Some gift card ideas: WAWA (gas/food), TD bank, Shoprite, Dunkin Donuts,
Acme, Medford Bagel, Murphys, Lambertis, Riveria, Star Bucks, Rite Aid, CVS)
All regular communication from us will be via our website, www.sjselectlax.com. It is your responsibility to check the website consistently prior to the season and on a daily basis as the season begins. All team announcements will be posted as soon as they become available including practice times and locations.
It is the policy of SJS to communicate with all of our families via the website to ensure the quickest, most reliable relaying of information to you.
Any weather related cancellations will be posted here at least 2 hours in advance, whenever possible.
This document will help you take the necessary steps to receive timely emails from your website.

Parents are responsible for all hotel and travel fees for their daughters. When available, we will secure blocks of rooms for our families through the tournament organizers. We will post all information regarding hotels to the website as soon as it becomes available. Whenever possible, we try to allow for parents to get their own rooms based on their own budgets. However, “stay to play” policies are becoming increasing more prevalent and in some cases, mandatory to the point where we have been threatened to be thrown out of a tournament for not abiding. In these cases, we ask that you comply with the rules the tournament sets upon the club so we don’t risk losing that tournament for the club. Please use hotels we are assigned, through the tournament when we are required to. To do otherwise may (as we learned last year) jeopardize our standing with a tournament.
It is very challenging for us to manage hotel blocks for coaches and players for 12 teams every summer. It would be much less work and cost for us to tell our parents to go out on their own and get their rooms. But we can't. In the past, we have put our club's status at a major tournament in limbo because so many parents booked outside of that tournament which had a stay to play policy. We will not put risk putting the club in that position again. IWLCA (Champions Cup) has a mandatory stay to play policy in effect for their tournaments, Rock The Fields clearly states their stay to play policy on their website, etc. The Rise tournament is one where parents can book on their own (per their website!).
We want all of our SJS families to have the most positive summer lacrosse experience possible so please:
#1 - Become familiar with each tournament via their website before you do any scheduling, make reservations, etc.
#2 - When in doubt, EMAIL SUZANNE OR KC with your questions or concerns. We are here to help!
We DO have hotel blocks for Champions Cup and Capital Cup and will be posting that information shortly. The deadline for claiming your rooms is not until April. Anyone attending the Rise tournament can go ahead and get your rooms if you haven't yet. I'll be posting the hotel information for Rock the Fields and Lax Inception along with Champions Cup and Capital Cup. All other tournaments are within commuting distance for the club.
South Jersey Select is excited to unveil our new website today! While some areas are still "under construction", we are thrilled to announce that on-line registration for the October tryout dates, for our 2013 Summer Team Program, is open and available immediately!!!
Our new website will make it easier for our families to access up-to-date information regarding playing opportunities through SJS as well as camps, clinics, and tournaments not sponsored by SJS! We hope to become your one-stop-information source for girls lacrosse opportunities. Our new online registration system will also ease the environmental burden that our paper registrations created in the past; Pink is doing its part to go green! : )
If you experience difficulties navigating the new website or when registering, try using a different web browser, MOZILLA FIREFOX OR INTERNET EXPLORER. Do not use Safari.
All 2012 summer team members & email addresses (if provided) have been imported into the registration system. When registering for tryouts, please sign in with the email address you are receiving this message. Enter email only and click sign in. A temporary password will be emailed to you. Once signed in, you be able to register for tryouts, edit your account and change your password (Please save your sign in & password in safe place).
Note: One parent for each player has been added to the system and named “Mom”. You can change this once signed in as well as add other family member(s). Parent(s) should be linked to player(s) in the system.
If you have any problems registering, please email Lee Ann McLoughlin,
Please be patient as we move through the learning curve ourselves to make the most of the website. We will continue to update different parts of the site over the coming weeks to add more features and information to it that will help all of you meet your lacrosse goals.
As always, any input from all of you on how to make it even better, will be greatly appreciated.
