Who can attend: The goal is to keep each group (K through 4th and 5th
through 8th) limited to 60 players (60 girls and 60 boys) per group to maximize playing time.
Boys and girls in K-8 who families are YAC members. All skill levels (Beginners to Very Experienced) are invited to play. This is a great opportunity for those who may be interested in seeing what the great game of lacrosse isall about before the Spring season begins and others who want to keep astick in their hands in the Fall.
Program Structure: This is "open" lacrosse. There are no set teams or
practices. Each week sticks will be placed in the middle and tossed into
piles to divide players. Coaches will be there to help coordinate and
help run the activities and encourage kids to have fun. We will be
running multiple mini-games/scrimmages (7v7 plus goalie) the width of
the field to keep all kids involved.
