2.) Registration information:
Boys and Girls registration 1st and 2nd Grade: The focus here is on FUN! This is an introduction to the fundamentals of lacrosse. Basic catching, throwing, shooting and ground balls are covered in fun drills and games. Game play is introduced through intra-squad scrimmages in practice. Expect 1-2 practices per week. Possibly some scrimmages/games against other towns later in the season and some round robin festivals. No uniforms are required (pinnies will be supplied). Full equipment is needed for boys (stick, helmet, gloves, elbow and shoulder pads, athletic cup) and for girls (sticks, mouth guard and goggles).
Boys Registration – Boys Grades 3rd-4th: Here the focus is still on the FUNdamentals along with team concepts of defense and offense. As the players progress more advanced techniques are introduced. Game situations are taught and each team has a regular travel schedule. Practices start late February/early March and the season ends by the first week of June. Expect minimum 2-3 practices per week not including games. Each boy will play in 10-12 games with potential tournaments. Attendance, Attitude and Aptitude are benchmark traits we are looking to develop in the boys.
