WINTER Season 2 REGISTRATION Now Open
We will be implementing a "Sandlot Games" style of play. Boys will only need a helmet, gloves, mouthguard, cleats and stick, and we will be using tennis balls only. Girls will use their normal equipment. The goal is to encourage kids to get out there and play lacrosse in fun ways outside of the season. By implementing the "Sandlot" concept (pick-up game), kids will be able to use this concept with friends in their backyard much like you would with basketball and football.
Each week, we will focus on "The Theme of the Night" such as: Picking/Claremont, wristers/twisters, hitch/pass-hitch/dodge-hitch/shoot, give and goes, shallow cuts-step back pass and flips, sidewinder. After honing that skill, the players will utilize that skill in mini games versus other teams chosen by coaches. The final 2 weeks will be tournament pool play per age group. These will be 2v2 mini games.
All practices will be held at The Edge (4450 Denrose Ct, Fort Collins, CO 80524). Sessions will run the weeks Jan 3 - February 27 (8 weeks total).
Tuesday Practice Dates (Jan 5, 12, 19, 26, Feb 2, 9, 16, 23)
Saturday Practice Dates (Jan 9, 16, 23, 30, Feb 6, 13, 20, 27)
We are very limited on space per hour due to Covid restrictions and we crafted our schedule based on the survey responses. If we have more people sign up per age group then expected, we may adjust these groupings. For example, if we have more 7th graders than expected we will move that group to 8:15 - 9:15pm session. The practice day will not change, but the time may.
Schedule by age group is as follows:
- Tuesdays: 7:15 - 8:15pm: 5th - 7th grade BOYS
- Tuesdays: 8:15 - 9:15pm: 8th grade BOYS
- Saturdays: 10 - 11am: 1st - 4th grade BOYS and 1st-8th grade Girls
