Ballston Spa Youth Lacrosse Spring 2018 Grade 7-8 Team
Program Goals and Philosophy:
Lacrosse is growing in popularity more and more every year. The 7-8 lacrosse program is designed to augment our modified program and allow players to gain game experience. This program is for players new to the game in 7th & 8th grade or players seeking more game playing experience. 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 field lacrosse 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. Games will be on weekends in a round robin format and will not interfere with the modified schedule.
We are in the process of modified try-outs. We hope to develop two teams at the modified level and one team will be a developmental team that will replace our rec team. That team will play scrimmages throughout the year and participate in round robins with other schools. At the end of modified tryouts we will have more information.
Scrimmage and Round Robin Schedule is TBD and will be updated by 4/1
Stick, mouth piece, gloves, arm pads, shoulder pads, and helmet. Cleats are strongly suggested.
