Our Youth Lacrosse program continues to grow and we are expecting between 50+ 1st & 2nd Grade boys to sign up by the time the season starts!
Objectives of the Program
Have Fun!!!!!!Learn the fundamentals of the game!!!!!Make sure your son wants to come back next year!!!
Fundamentals – passing, catching, scoping, cradling, shooting, defense, team play, etc. (if we’re lucky)
Will try to scrimmage the last half hour of every practice(3 small fields, 6 vs 6, lots of touches)
Best way to teach your son is take them to a HHS varsity game!
We will be playing with FULL EQUIPMENT including a regulation lacrosse stick & ball, helmets, gloves, elbow pads, shoulder pads and an athletic cup.For boys that don’t have their own sticks and need one, we should have a few loaner sticks available.
Helmets – We also have a few loaner youth helmets (Available 1st come 1st serve)
All-Star Sports in Chagrin Falls has a great deal on beginner Youth Lacrosse equipment that includes a buy-back provision
Even though we will be playing with full equipment, there will be “NO checking or hitting”.
Reversible practice jerseys will be provided and handed out at our first practice (you get to keep)
Shoes – cleats or tennis shoes fine
Parents – it will be your responsibility to make sure your son has all his equipment on and adjusted properly when he walks onto the field (Thanks! This is a huge help!)
