STARTING IN APRIL
The Instructional Clinic is designed to be a no-pressure, fun way of learning about lacrosse. The time and financial commitment are limited, so families who want to try something new can do so without having to sacrifice too much from their schedule or their checkbook. Players can get a feel for what lacrosse is all about without having to quit other sports you may be enjoying..
- No pads, no contact; just sticks and soft rubber balls.
- Clinic will focus on teaching your child the basic skills of lacrosse, with emphasis on team building, and self-esteem boosting activities in line with the Positive Coaching Alliance model (see below for more info on the PCA).
When: Clinic will be held once a week for 8 weeks throughout April and May.
Where: Walnut Street Elementary School, Toms River.
Cost: Returning players $50, New Players $75. Cost Includes Stick, T-shirt, soft rubber ball, and US Lacrosse registration.
Parents are permitted and even encouraged, to participate. We have found that when a parent gets involved, your child has a much higher level of confidence and sense of well being on the field. Overall, lacrosse is a much more enjoyable experience when it is a family activity. You can get involved either as an assistant coach, team mom/dad, or even just stay and network with the coaches and the other families during practice.
Families with 1st grade boys will have the choice of playing on the K-1 clinic or playing full gear lacrosse in the Small Ball program. It is your choice and you should base it on your child's hand eye coordination, athletic ability, and level of confidence.
