Sounds From The Summit

Check out what we're listening to at SLV as we work from home to manage our summer lacrosse season. We are driven by delivering lacrosse for our people in the Summer of 2020. These tunes move us. Enjoy. 

A Taste Of The Summit

Uncertain times produce uncertain results. Staying at home for 6 weeks has had its effects on all of us; one positive byproduct is the tasty food happenings including the three recipes below. Let us know what you've got cooking!

[Home] Base Camp

Work has a new look and we're using our bonus 'commute time' time to do a little extra

In doing our part to mitigate COVID-19, SLV promptly retreated to home-office life upon the call-to-action. For 3 of the 4 of us, this meant creating a new work environment. Our daily interaction has mostly just changed in format and with whom we share our space (cue a background bark, scream or random knock at the door), but we've been getting a lot done...and a little extra.


Ashley's [Home] Base Camp


Extra guest room turned into an office a year ago in preparation for new 'working Mom world'...so I was already all setup! Multi-tasking Bonus: laundry is right across the hall.


Sometimes (often) having an engineer of a husband with a 3D printing habit pays off...We've really enjoyed our weekend/night project of assembling shields to donate to the front lines.


Lacrosse 101 with Charlotte! To set the record straight, I did not throw my 1yo daughter in the net (yet), but her visible focus is a good sign! I think George would be proud of the net string job.
