GLCOF has two, possibly three, opportunities to engage with the community at City of Frisco events later this fall. Help us promote the program while having fun with your lax friends!
Participation is not mandatory, but the GLCOF Board kindly asks each family to consider making time to take part in at least one of the following events.
Frisco Community Parade
Saturday, November 10
9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
9200 World Cup Way (staging area)
The Frisco Fury will march down Main Street in the Frisco Community Paradefor our third year in 2018. We will have a fun float complete with the Fury tornado and large logo. Thanks to the McGimsey Family for building these items in 2017 so we can use them each year!
Keep in mind most Fury players, coaches and board members who participate will walk the approx. 1.6 mile route down Main Street from Toyota Stadium east to North County Road.
We will need about 8 additional parents to volunteer to pass out candy/spring season marketing cards to parade spectators. We also want to do our red, white and blue-themed Jeep caravan again this year. If a parent is willing to drive his/her Jeep in the parade, please let Darcy Schroer know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
What to wear…
Your Frisco Fury pinnie as your top layer. Coaches and board members will wear Fury swag. Girls are encouraged to bring their sticks to walk with. As we wait in the staging area, the girls will decorate signs to carry thanking our Frisco veterans for their service.
Any Fury players or parents who want to participate in the parade… please email Darcy Schroer, email@example.com. Detailed communication about the parade and parade-day logistics will only go to those who email their interest to participate.
Frosty 5K and Merry Mile Saturday, December 1
6101 Frisco Square Blvd.

Frisco Fury won the award for ‘Best Team Spirit’ in 2017 and ‘Largest Team’ in 2015. Let’s see if we can have another award-winning year in 2018. Sign up the whole family to run or walk the 5K.
Click on the blue ‘Sign Up’ box under Group Registration box under the home page race image.
Choose ‘Group Registration’ at the bottom of the form.
Make sure you click ‘YES’ under the question, “Would you like to join a Group/Team?”
Select the box: Join an Existing Group/Team
Under ‘Select Group/Team’ drop down menu choose Frisco Fury Girls Lacrosse.
The team password to enter is fr!$c0furyLAX (that’s a numeric zero, not the letter O in frisc0)
What to wear…
Each Frisco Fury athlete should wear her pinnie over any layers with blue side/lime green number showing. In previous years, players have worn lime green tutus for a fun touch plus their own fun holiday-themed hats, headbands or socks. That part is up to you. Other family members and friend running on the Frisco Fury team are encourage to wear some Fury swag to ID yourself as part of the group.
Merry Main Street Saturday, December 1 5:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
6101 Frisco Square Blvd.
Finally, GLCOF is still looking into our options to participate as a vendor at Merry Main Street on Saturday, December 1, from 5 – 9 p.m. in Frisco Square. Being at this event always gains us new player registrations for the spring.
However, Frisco Parks & Rec has limited the types of vendors this year. To participate we have to sell something – either a food item or product. Marketing-only booths are no longer allowed.
If we have a parent(s) who is willing to take the lead on how to make this a fundraiser for the program, please reach out to Melanie McElroye andDeb Secrest. Preferably, we have a parent(s) with experience previously volunteering at a food booth.
Thank you for being part of the Fury Family. Your participation in these events helps the organization be recognized in a positive light in our community!

GIRLS LACROSSE CLUB OF FRISCO RECHARGES HIGH SCHOOL PROGRAM WITH NEW COACHING
WPLL Player, Kailah Kempney, Becomes Frisco Fury Varsity Coach;
Claire McCain Named JV Coach, Jordan Little Named Assistant High School/Goalie Coach
As the sport of girls lacrosse becomes increasingly competitive in North Texas, the Girls Lacrosse Club of Frisco (GLCOF) announces a new powerhouse line-up of coaches for its Frisco Fury high school teams.
The new varsity head coach is Kailah Kempney, who played attack this summer for the New York Fight in the Women’s Professional Lacrosse League (WPLL). Kempney brings a wealth of knowledge of the game from many different aspects, as both a player and coach. She previously played four years of DI lacrosse at Syracuse University where she holds the record as the school’s all-time leader in draw controls. During her time playing lacrosse for the Orange, Kempney competed in four consecutive NCAA Final Fours and made two National Championship appearances. She also previously coached at the collegiate level as an assistant coach for the University of Colorado women’s lacrosse team.
Claire McCain becomes the Frisco Fury junior varsity coach this fall. McCain is a 2017 graduate of the University of Colorado, where she played DI lacrosse as a midfielder and defender.
Completing the Frisco Fury’s high school coaching staff is Frisco native and Frisco High graduate, Jordan Little. She was the JV coach for 2017-2018 and will now serve as the assistant high school coach and the program’s goalie coach. Little is a 2017 graduate of Southwestern University where she played goalie from her sophomore to senior year. She will help develop talent in the goal cage at all age levels.
“We are very excited to have such talented individuals join our high school coaching staff who have exhibited leadership in their previous coaching and student-athlete roles,” said Melanie McElroye, president – GLCOF Board of Directors. “With the trio of Kempney, McCain and Little, the possibilities are endless for our athletes. The entire Frisco Fury family can look forward to an amazing season as we grow the game of girls lacrosse at the high school level and filter that standard of excellence in skill and character down to our youth recreational teams."
Gearing up the high school coaching staff is key to the future of the Frisco Fury lacrosse program. It is the largest girls lacrosse program in North Texas with approximately 150 registered players. The GLCOF Board anticipates the growth to continue at all age levels, with the number of high school players potentially increasing by at least 50 percent over the next two years. Five high school seniors are playing for the Frisco Fury during the 2018-19 school year, while the following school year, 2019 – 2020, as many as 25 girls could move up from the youth rec program as high school freshman.
The Frisco Fury varsity and JV teams compete in the Division II bracket of the Texas Girls High School Lacrosse League (TGHSLL). The North Texas region of TGHSLL covers the DFW metro area and southern Oklahoma. The Frisco Fury Varsity team has competed in TGHSLL State Championships the past two years, making it to the semi-finals in May 2017 and May 2018.
WHAT OUR NEW COACHES ARE SAYING...
Frisco Fury Varsity Coach
“I am very thankful for this opportunity to take the next step in my coaching career with the Frisco Fury. It's exciting to be coaching alongside one of my previous college players, Claire McCain, and the rest of the coaching staff to continue developing this program and to take it to the next level. I look forward to what this next year has in store and working hard with the rest of our staff to achieve our goals and to prove the potential our Frisco Fury program has.”
Frisco Fury Junior Varsity Coach
"I'm extremely excited to be on board with Frisco Fury. The direction that this program is heading toward is of tremendous growth and success. The work that has been done on the youth side is beginning to infiltrate the high school level which is incredibly exciting. On top of all that, being a Frisco resident is just another reason why this coaching role is a perfect fit."
Frisco Fury Assistant HS & Goalie Coach
“I cannot wait to spend another season on the field with Frisco Fury! This already amazing program is on its way to a bigger and brighter future, and I'm just thankful to be a part of it.”
Both the Frisco Fury high school and youth rec teams will kick off their 4th fall season when practices begin the week of August 20. GLCOF formed in July 2015 with the mission to provide a girls-only program focused on the needs of female athletes learning the sport of lacrosse. GLCOF continues to stand on the foundation of our mission of fostering a life-long enjoyment for the game of girls lacrosse, as well as, encouraging players to develop a positive attitude, self-discipline, respect for others, and commitment to the success of their team and club.
