CYO News


Hi Everyone

Starting in the spring of 2016-17 CYO will begin to add Lacrosse for boys and girls 6-8th grades.

There is still time to register for the CYO Learn to Play Lacrosse Clinics beginning April 10-11 at 3 locations in Cuyahoga Falls, Gates Mills and Westlake. If you have a child that is interested in playing lacrosse or want to learn a new sport or needs to become more active, then you can look forward to a lot of enjoyment with lacrosse. The benefits are endless.

1) It takes discipline to play lacrosse, a trait your child is sure to develop. Every child needs mental discipline and regular exercise has been shown to improve mental performance both on and off the field.

2) Lacrosse is a great way to increase a child's fitness. This sport is a great cardiovascular exercise that demands skill development and strength training that is age appropriate. If your child is young, these sessions will be far more focused on fun that will teach your child the fundamentals of physical fitness and the joy of healthy play.

3) Teaching young people to socially interact with others in their age group and becoming a team player can be difficult. Lacrosse will teach your child to set goals and accomplish those goals with the help of others; a skill they will use forever.

4) One area where lacrosse players benefit is coordination. Catching a little ball in a cupped net is much more difficult than it looks. Combine running, jumping and blocking, and you have a recipe for coordination that will benefit your child for a lifetime. The instructors will make it look easy!

Each session is open to boys and girls from any school in grades 6-8; non-Catholics are welcomed too. So bring a bring a friend. Each location will only accept the first 30 athletes. Register here Lacrosse Learn to Play Clinics
