Little Laxers 7-Week Training Program

FREE Introductory Clinic to Boy’s Lacrosse, ages 4-6

Sundays from 9:15 to 10:00 AM (09/23/18 – 11/04/18)

Gaithersburg High School

Please follow us on Facebook:


We would like to grow the game and encourage fun, so we will host a FREE introduction to lacrosse program for boys ages 4-6 that will run for 7 weeks. Equipment will be provided for the kids but donations for balls and sticks are appreciated.


Our Objectives are as follows:

We will spend most of our time focusing on fundamental movement skills - body management, locomotion and object control skills that build ability, confidence and a desire to play lacrosse. This will be a fun, constant active engagement. It will be relaxed, inclusive, and consist of positive training with frequent changes of activity but with predictable routines. We will have games that build basic movement skills in the context of lacrosse with lots of praise and reinforcement from coaches and parents.


Athletic Development:

Running, jumping, hopping, twisting, turning, stopping, starting, static balance, catching a ball with two hands.

Technical (Skills) Development:

Introducing running with the ball, scooping, throwing. Exposure to all skills. Experimentation and terminology.


Tactical (Strategy) Development:

Experimentation with body, stick and ball in a defined space containing "special" areas (ie goal). Stopping, starting, and changing pace. Running to open space.

Psychological Development:

Trying new challenges. Effort. Following simple instructions.

Social-Behavioral Development:

Learning to share. Learning to say “thank you”. Enjoying friends.

The boys are the center of their own worlds. Parents are central for praise and approval.

We hope you can make it!

~Coaches Danny Lowery & Alex Dixon

Sounds like a good program and a good strategy Roy Kelley . The more choices boy and girls have to participate the less likely they are to get bored and get into things they shouldn't.

That sounds like a wonderful program.  I should sign up, because, I don't understand this sport.

This is a sport I never tried when I was young, Roy.  Though, if I knew about it I think I would have enjoyed it.

Just like soccer, they start young.  I have never played lacrosse, but it is fun to watch.
