Ballston Spa Youth Lacrosse Spring 2020 Grade 5-6 Team
Program Goals and Philosophy:
Lacrosse is growing in popularity more and more every year. The 5/6 lacrosse program is designed to teach and build upon the game of lacrosse. A major focus will be placed on learning the basic rules and skills of the game including ground balls, passing and catching techniques, shooting, and full lacrosse field knowledge. In addition to learning the skills of the game, a prime focus will be placed on recognizing the importance of physical fitness and of demonstrating good sportsmanship both on and off the field. Above all else, the ultimate goal is for each player to have as much fun as possible and grow as a person and player. Our program is designed to be an exciting learning experience for all athletes. We have a great coaching group at this level with Coach Phillips, Coach Vadney, Coach Gottmann, & Coach Siracuse.
Practices will be held on Monday and Wednesday evening on the fields in the back of the Middle School. We will begin practices as soon as fields are cleared for use. Before the fields are clear, we will try and secure gym space and have stick skill practices. Coaches will reach out to players registered for our 5/6 program to let them know when we have gym space for pre-season stick skill practices.
Will be updated after scheduling meeting in late February
Each player will receive a full sublimated uniform and shooting shirt with registration. Each player must be registered as player with U.S. Lacrosse and you will need the U.S. Lacrosse # to register for our Spring Lacrosse Program
