Ballston Spa Youth Lacrosse Spring 2019 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 Grevelding, 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.
