A clinic style, developmental program for players in Pre-K and Kindergarten, the U7 program consists of six Sunday morning clinics starting in late April. The focus is on fun while learning basic fundamental lacrosse skills. We have sticks, though players may bring their own; players must supply their own eye protection goggles and mouthguards. This age group wears t-shirts supplied by the program.
Clinics will start in late April and be weather and field-dependent. We need at least 20 registered players and parent volunteers to run the U7 program. More information to follow.
The U9 program is an intramural, developmental one for players in 1st and 2nd grades. Games are played 7v7 on a shortened field. Standard field positions are two defense, two attack, and two midfielders plus one center taking the draw; we do not play with goalies. The emphasis is on learning lacrosse fundamentals, basic game rules and having fun. All U9 teams will have one weekday practice and meet on Sunday mornings for a short practice followed by a game starting in mid/late April. Games are officiated by paid MHS Girls Varsity/JV Lacrosse players. This age group wears t-shirts supplied by the program. Each player must provide her own stick, eye goggles and mouthguard.
