Do you agree that teaching your kids how to catch is a challenge? Would you say it is one of the most difficult skills to teach? How about adding a lacrosse stick to the mix? YIKES!! 

As everything in sports, learning new skills takes a lot of patience & practice.  It's frustrating, we know.  Besides being a hard concept to learn, children actually need to reach certain developmental stages in order to understand the bas...

During the winter months, getting children off the couch to go outside and play sports is challenging. Freezing, long dark days, make even the most energetic people tired.  Studies from the Center for Disease Control give us recommended guidelines for how many hours children need per week for exercising/physical activity -- it out weighs the actual sunlight!

Our options for outdoor play are limited a...

We know that some kids spend too much time on smart devices and playing video games. But did you ever wonder WHY they enjoy them so much? How can they play them for hours? Did YOU ever try to play them?  Us parents just don't get it, we didn't have immersive games growing up so learning learn how to play them now when our fine motor skills are already developed is challenging.  Our kids are playing them at their most in...

And guess what? It has to st...

  • What types of coaches does the program have?

Lacrosse, the fastest sport on two feet, is growing even faster across the USA than the pace of play. As a former player and current coach, it’s easy for me to see why. Scores are usually in the 8-15 range, making it exciting and action-packed, there’s very little stopping time during games, you can play in almost any weather, and best of all, it’s incredibly fun.

Lacrosse is an awesome combination of soccer-style contin...

There is no denying it. Kids – and their parents – are spending more and more time on screens than ever before. But what is the relationship between screen time and kids health? And should parents be worried?

According to market researcher conducted by Childwise in 2015, kids aged five-16 average 6.5 hours screen time a day, with teenage boys spending the most time on screens – an average of 8 hours a day.  Thus, a typic...

Allowing your children to participate in youth sports is a fantastic way for children to explore and develop lifelong skills. Youth sports not only play an important role in exercise, but promotes mental and psychological advances as well. It is well-known that children who participate in sports are less likely to drop out of school, and become involved in drugs and alcohol activity, while they also excel in academic pe...
