MAPLE GROVE YOUTH LACROSSE provides a fun opportunity for boys and girls to be introduced to the game of Lacrosse. No experience necessary, each practice will focus on developing basic skills, teamwork and lead into 4 on 4 style play with an emphasis on growing a passion for the sport. This development league is for kids in the Maple Grove High School Boundary. Your player is eligible if he/she just completed pre-kindergarten, kindergarten, first, or second grade prior to the summer season.
Age Groups: Boys 4-6 year olds & Girls 4-8 year olds
Equipment needed: All participants must wear a mouth guard and boys must wear a protective cup. Cleats are preferred but not required. Lacrosse stick should be an appropriate gender based stick for the participant as we encourage either a boys or girls stick to learn basic skills with the appropriate style stick. In addition: (Boys) - helmet with a cage and gloves (Girls) – goggles and gloves.
Optional Equipment: For Boys, other equipment includes shoulder and elbow pads. Hockey gear is fine and works well for this.
This is a co-ed program however where appropriate boys and girls are split into separate groups.
