Players of the Week Policy

Updated Thursday April 9, 2015 by Lovejoy Leopards Lacrosse.



It is the philosophy of the Lovejoy Leopards Lacrosse program that players should be encouraged and motivated through appropriate recognition. The Lovejoy Leopards Lacrosse program will recognize one player from each team each week and highlight those players on our website. As such, only players that have not previously been selected for a weekly recognition shall receive consideration. The coaches from each of our teams will submit a player for weekly recognition based on that particular player’s weekly performance in practice, in a game, in school, or community service.

Player selection criteria should be consistent with the philosophy of the Lovejoy Leopards Lacrosse program. Meaning the player COMPETED WITH CLASS and HONORED THE GAME of lacrosse.  As such, the following selection criteria should be applied:


Contribution:  Player made a significant contribution to the overall success of the team.

Leadership:  Player took on a leadership role and was respected by his teammates.

Attitude:  Player was positive, coachable, and hard working.

Sportsmanship:  Player honored the game of lacrosse by demonstrating good sportsmanship and having respect for others.

Selflessness:  Player put the team above his own self-interests, and made others around him better.
