This years 6U program will be designed to keep kids moving and playing various skill-based games and drills to teach them the core skills (scooping, shooting, cradling, etc.) of lacrosse. The program is co-ed and will be low contact.
MGLAX will also collaborate with various other associations to establish 6U skills based scrimmages, games, and jamborees. Planning for this part of the offering is still in the very early phase of development and is contingent on interest from other local area lacrosse associations. A in-house league may be established based on the total number of registrants.
