2018 Little Laxers Program

 

 

What is it?

Worthington Little Laxers is a program for girls and boys 3-6 years old who want to play the exciting game of lacrosse!  We teach the FUNdamental skills of the sport while developing introductory movement skills, eye-hand coordination, and basic concepts of teamwork. We weave sportsmanship and cooperative play throughout all of our sessions, and maximize each player’s touches on ball. Our goal is to provide Little Laxers with the skills and knowledge to build ability, confidence and interest in playing lacrosse!

 

 

Who:    3-6 year olds in Worthington

 

Where:  Thomas Worthington HS Turf Field

 

When:   Sunday afternoons from 2:30pm-3:30pm

             April 15, April 22, April 29, May 6, May 13, May 20

 

Cost:       $30 for six-week program

 

 

What is the format?

We run a station-based “clinic” each week with drills that are age-appropriate and allow the kids to experiment with lacrosse in a fun way.  Players will rotate through 4 skill-building stations focusing on the basics of lacrosse using small-sided competitions to practice those skills. Players are grouped by age, but we can place siblings together if requested. We also encourage parents to be on the field with the players for support and to see them close in action.

 

What equipment does my child need?

We provide each player with a stick and a ball to use during the sessions.  At this level, we want players to experiment with the stick and ball and grow comfortable using them.  Players aren’t required to wear protective eyewear or mouthguards since we are using soft balls.
