Gladiator Spring 2019 Lacrosse
For 3rd and 4th Grade Students
Is your 3rd or 4th Grader interested in playing Lacrosse?
The best way to prepare to play the great game of lacrosse is to get started with a quality experience. Games will start in late April/early May and run through the 1st week of June. Our expectation is to play games within our conference. Most importantly, practice will start mid-March. Although a volunteer coaching staff is a must, we will have our current coaches help to give kids the most beneficial piece to the puzzle: positive, progressive practice time. At the same time, they will help expose volunteers to the game. These ages will prosper from organized instruction.
3rd-4th Grade: Will play an 8v8 format. Our expectation is to play with the Suburban Youth Conference, however, if needed, we will find additional games. We will expect 8-10 games. Weather permitting, practices will start mid-March.
For all registered players, an open practice will be held on Wednesdays, 1/16, 1/23, 1/30 and 2/6/19 from 5:00-6:30pm at Oakland Yard Athletics. Oakland Yard is located at 5328 Highland Rd., Waterford. Detailed league schedule will be given at parent meeting Tuesday, February 5, 2019.
We will have 2-3 days of practice through April. All players will be provided the necessary equipment with the exception of a helmet (must be Lacrosse NOCSAE approved), mouth piece and athletic supporter. Shoulder pads, elbow pads, gloves, and stick will be provided but MUST BE RETURNED. We will have a MANDATORY PARENT MEETING on Tuesday, February 5, 2019 from 7:00pm-8:00pm.
