Girls Lacrosse Camp (Grades K-8)
Each week will consist of different activities. Thursdays will be a "learning" session at which we will work on small sided drills, split into grades and work individually with girls in order to better certain areas of the game.  This two and a half hour session will be very instructional, working on draws, defense, dodging, shooting, goalie station, etc.  At the end of Thursday sessions, we will end with a quick game.  On Saturdays, the two hours will be dedicated to scrimmaging.  Girls will be split into common age groups (kindergartners will not be playing middle school), and the girls will rotate through mini scrimmages in order to be in a "game like" situation.  This will occur through the three weeks and the final Sunday which will be a full day of playing.  All parents are welcome to come and watch as we will simulate almost a "mini tournament" against one another.  Cost is $73.00.  A schedule of the Thursday drill plan/drills will be provided soon to registrants.  ALL PLAYERS ATTEND A SPECIAL SESSION ON SUNDAY, JULY 29 FROM 12:00 PM – 4:00 PM

  • Session 1:  Thursday, July 12 from 6-8:30 PM AND Saturday, July 14 from 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM
