  • More Information about Summer Lacrosse League

    • We will use tennis balls and there will be very minimal body contact, so protective equipment will not be used.  Girls are encouraged to use boys sticks because handling a tennis ball with a girls stick is quite difficult. Sticks will be provided if athletes do not have one of their own. 
    • Each session will begin with roughly thirty minutes of a skill-driven exercise that will have a variety of solutions/skills to it. While this seems like structured instruction, the multiple approaches to it maintain the free play environment. 
    • Following the skill-driven exercise, we will mix up athletes into groups of three based on skill and age level for free play games of 3v3 on small goals. This style of play ensures all players get warp speed experience and touches on the ball - something that can’t be replicated in a traditional practice or game play setting! 
    • The eight-week pickup league will be sold as a single entity, but athletes may come and go as their summer plans allow.
      To keep up the free play energy, we will create an environment fun with constant music played as well as Powerade and snacks for purchase.
