LiL Kids Lax is the ULTIMATE Lacrosse introduction program for your boy & girl ages 3-7. Each season we bring a unique program to your child where they learn the fundamentals of lacrosse while having fun! They'll learn lots of skills and get tons of exercise-- all while they have their stick in hand! We got cradling, proper grip, scooping, running with the stick and ball, intro to passing/catching & even defense covered. We have built our curriculum specifically for the youngest of athletes pulling from years of lacrosse coaching experience, training in the physical education guidelines of the NAEYC, CDC and NASPE as well as following criteria developed by US Lacrosse.
We don't only teach basic Lacrosse skills, but also letters, numbers, colors, listening skills, foot, hand and eye coordination. We emphasize teamwork, treating each other with kindness, and celebrate each new task a child learns in our program with encouragement. We keep class sizes small with 2-3 coaches per session, each child gets plenty of coaching from our enthusiastic staff.
SAMPLE LESSON PLAN
Each season has it's own specialized curriculum, building off of prior sessions. Within the program, each week has it's own focus; a different skill to work on and reinforce throughout the entire program. We got all the fundamentals covered! Your child will learn cradling, scooping, shooting, defensive footwork, catching & passing. We focus on the basic fundamentals of the game that includes proper grip, scooping, running with the stick and ball.
We are always adjusting and developing our curriculum to fit the growing needs of our boys & girls ages 3-8 yrs old as well as the turn of the season. 4 times a year our 6 week session gets a fresh lesson plan, offering new drills, new games and new challenges all while following our standardized curriculum.
Every week we incorporate these things:
Focus on key Lacrosse skill building (cradling, proper grip, scooping, running with the stick and ball, intro to passing/catching, defense). Each season your child will be taught the basics week by week in a succinct manner, that won't change but the way it is coached will. Practice does make perfect!
Stick in hand. Every week we will make sure your child has their stick in hand majority of the session, whether it be for warm-ups, fun games or drills.
