  • Parent volunteer assistant coaches.  If interested, please note on your registration. Training will be provided.

  • Program team manager.  Will send out weekly reminder communications, any weather-related communications, and will plan end of season fun.

Players will work on developing and improving basic lacrosse skills including: catching, passing, throwing, cradling, shooting. A great opportunity for young players who want to start learning the game.   It will be a combination of small group skill-based clinics with some scrimmage opportunities built in.
