Ballston Spa Youth Lacrosse Spring 2021 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. If there is no modified season this spring, this will be in place of our modified team. 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.
We will develop a practice schedule that will meet 3 evenings a week and Saturday. Practices and games will be held during these times. Once a determination is made on modified sports, we will update the dates and times for practices and games.
Game Schedule is TBD and will be updated by 4/1
Stick, mouth piece, gloves, arm pads, shoulder pads, and helmet. Cleats are strongly suggested.
