This is the perfect introduction to the sport of Lacrosse! Only a lacrosse stick is required to participate!
The goal of this program is to teach the basic skills of lacrosse in a fun, high-energy environment and share our passion for the game of lacrosse.
Our experienced staff specializes in working with new players to introduce the skills necessary to be a successful player and then reinforce those skills through activities and games.
** For players that attended our fall clinics we will work with those players from the point the last session left off.
Need a Lacrosse Stick? We have a limited supply of lacrosse sticks available to loan to players. Please email us at email@example.com to reserve a stick.
