The program is initially only open to the Tyker and Lightning age groups, including players in grades 2 through 5 for the 2019-2020 school year.
Supervised Free-Play (Mondays at 6:30) - Will provide an opportunity for the boys to play "pick-up" lacrosse. Under the supervision of Bel Air Rec coaches, the boys will be given an opportunity to become increasingly more self-directed and autonomous with the free play session. Games my range from full-field 10 vs 10 to mini-games with mini-goals. Full equipment is required for these sessions.
Skills and Drills (Wednesdays at 6:30) - Will provide an opportunity to focus on lacrosse stickwork and general physical literacy (applicable to all sports). Several stations will be set up around the field, with each station manned for the duration of the session by the same coaches. The sessions will be planned with common and complementary skills at the individual stations. The fundamentals of space, time and communication will be stressed as they are overarching and transferrable. Coaches will script the session with a focus on small groups within the station groups and maximizing the number of times players touch the ball. Players only need helmets, gloves, and their stick for the skills and drills session.
This program is free and open to all registered Bel Air Rec Lacrosse players. Everyone is encouraged to attend with the caveat that this program is supplemental, not required to play on any specific team in the 2020 season, and should never interfere with in-season sports.
This program also provides an excellent opportunity for interested volunteers to try coaching without having to commit to a full season or team. Please register as a volunteer if you are interested in coaching.
