K-2 Grade Level:
The kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade program for both boys and girls is designed to simply introduce the sport of lacrosse to these young players, developing basic skills in a non-competitive, non-contact, fun environment. For these players, there is one practice a week and no formal schedule of games against other teams. Last year the Club hosted a year-end jamboree, where these young lacrosse players did have the opportunity to participate in non-contact games with teams from other clubs as well as learn from some local college players and coaches. Given the enormous success of this inaugural program, we anticipate a similar program this season.
