Ballston Spa Youth Lacrosse Spring 2022 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. We will continue to build off of skills and strategy into full field games at the 5/6 level. 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.
