Fall Youth Lacrosse Programs

Throughout the course of the year players will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of programs where they can learn different aspects of the game outside of the traditional spring season. By creating a yearly calendar players, parents, and coaches can determine what the best fit is for each player and their schedule. Our goal is to provide players with an environment where they can learn, develop and have fun.

This fall we will be offering the following programs:


The Skills Academy focuses on helping players develop fundamental skills through instruction and high repetition drills. Players will learn how to incorporate these skills and techniques into their game using small sided games.

What is Box Lacrosse?

Box Lacrosse is played in tighter spaces (hockey rink size) which teaches players to play at a high tempo and adapt to each situation quickly. The game is also played with smaller goals, and goalies wear additional padding, forcing player to work for high percentage shots and to use accuracy while shooting. There's no hiding in the box! With only five field players (runners) on the floor at a time playing both offense and defense, players are always involved in the action on both sides of the field. All field players will learn offensive and defensive skills and techniques that will contribute to their development in all aspects of the game.
