The MiniStix program is open to boys and girls ages 5-7 (Pre-K through 1st grade). It is a co-ed, 8-week introduction to lacrosse based on the USA Lacrosse Athlete Development Model https://www.usalacrosse.com/athlete-development. Emphasis is on FUNdamentals. Through a variety of age-appropriate games and drills the kids will learn catching, throwing, cradling, dodging, and scooping. The program will meet 1x per week for about 1 hour.
A stick is included with the registration, and is the only equipment required.
In most cases, 1st graders will play U9 instead of MiniStix, but any 1st grader who wishes to try lacrosse is welcome!
