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.
Based on registration and expected attendance for a session, we may combine Tyker and Lightning into one group, or separate them with Tyker starting at 6:15 and Lightning starting at 7:30.
Please respond to the RSVP email for each session so the coaches can plan!
Skills and Drills (Wednesdays at 6:30 starting July 3rd) - 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.
Supervised Free-Play (Mondays at 6:30 starting July 8th) - 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.
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.
