Fall Clinic Halloween Practice, "Getting Ready for Pinnie Tag"



All clinics will adhere to COVID-19 local and state safety guidelines, as the health & safety of our participants, families and coaches is our top priority.

CLINIC FORMAT:  8 weeks. Fall season runs from 9/7 - 10/31 (see specific dates below).

*NEW THIS YEAR* For Grades 3-8, Tuesdays will be a Skills session, with emphasis on fundamentals - catching, throwing, cradling, dodging, shooting, ground balls, 1 v 1 play - and Thursdays will be Scrimmage play, designed to advance game play skills and lacrosse IQ. All experience and ability levels welcome. Girls will be split by grade and skill level. Registration for both Tuesdays and Thursdays receives a multi-session discount.

For Grades K-2, we will offer Sunday Skills clinics, to develop individual fundamental skills - catching, throwing, cradling, dodging, shooting, ground balls, 1 v 1 play - in a fun instructional environment. Small-sided game play will also be included. 

PARENT VOLUNTEERS: Our programs rely on and benefit from the assistance of parent volunteer coaches, especially with the younger grades on Sunday mornings. Volunteer responsibilities can range from assisting with check-in, helping girls with their equipment and overseeing bathroom breaks to supporting the paid coaches by keeping the girls focused on the drills.

If you are able to volunteer (no lacrosse experience necessary), please .

PRICING: $200. 

*For players in Grades 3-8, registration for both Tuesdays and Thursdays receives a $50 multi-day discount (please select the combined registration option), for a total of $350.*
