PYL is looking to offer for the 1st time an intro to Lacrosse at the K-2nd grade age group for boys/girls. K2 Lacrosse is geared to the young athlete looking to learn about the game in a fun and informative way.
Lacrosse is not an easy sport to learn. Patience for players, coaches and parents is stressed looking for kids to have a fun expierence.
Here's what to expect...
Players are introduced to the sport of lacrosse with a focus on FUNdamentals.
Individual players are given as much stick and ball time as possible and are encouraged to get comfortable with the equipment.
Lacrosse has 5 skills needed to play the sport which all will be introduced:
Skill repetition is used to improve fundamental player ability.
Fun games and drills are used to reinforce the new learned skills.
By session end, a player should be comfortable with their new equipment, have a basic understanding of each skill and enough knowledge on how to practice that skill on their own.
Stick: At this age a full size stick is going to be very tough to handle. Here is what we recommend:
Hand me down from a Sibiling. If full length would recommend cutting down length
Ministick - many brands sell these now. Great pocket and size.
Fiddle sticks - good size but pocket is small, tougher to learn catching/throwing
Helmet (Boys)- no contact and soft rubber balls will be used so not allowed
Hand me down from a Sibiling. Always the best. If full length would recommend cutting down length
