This is a great opportunity for kids to try the great game of lacrosse before the Spring season and for others who want to keep a stick in their hands and develop their skills while having fun.
Program Structure: This is "open" lacrosse. There are no set teams or practices. Each week we will spend some time on skill development and overall instruction to enhance everyone's lacrosse IQ and then we will play open games--sticks will be placed in the middle and tossed into piles to divide players. Coaches and Yorktown HS players will help teach the kids, develop their skills and coordinate and help run the activities and encourage kids to have fun. We will be running multiple mini-games/scrimmages (7v7 plus goalie) the width of the field to keep all kids involved.
Goalies will be trained each week by SUNY Albany All-American goalie JD Colarusso and we expect to provide position specific training for FOGO's as well. Each week all of the players will be coached by YAC and SOAC coaches as well as Yorktown HS players and we also expect to have some surprise guest instructors...stay tuned.
