The U7 program focuses on basic skills, such as cradling, scooping, catching and throwing in a positive and fun environment. The program is available for both Pre-K and Kindergarten girls and boys is kept in-town so that the focus is on skills without the pressure of competing and travel. The U7 program consists of six Sunday morning sessions. The sessions will be held at 8am at Phillips Park/Blocksidge Field. The 2021 dates are as follows: April 25th, May 2nd, May 9th, May 16th, May 23rd, and June 6th.
GIRLS: SNYL will supply (on loan) both the stick and eye protection goggles and each player will receive an SNYL reversible piney. You would be responsible to supply your daughter with a mouthguard. We decided to have the girls use regular sticks and balls so they will become more comfortable each practice with the type of lacrosse equipment they will use all the way through college!
BOYS: The U7 program will use regulation lacrosse sticks which you will need to buy (buy the cheapest stick you can find, usually around $35). A helmet, gloves elbow pads and chest potector/shoulder pads are needed. Mouth guards are encouraged. Contact at this level will be held to a minimum, i.e., there may be some incidental, but control over their sticks will be closely monitored.
Cost: $75 per player for the season of which $35 is for US Lacrosse Insurance. The remainder of the fee is for our town field user fee, an SNYL reversible piney, and some general equipment costs.
Registration will open December 8th, 2020 to the April 23rd, 2021.
Assistance: We welcome any and all parent assistance for sessions. Please reach out to us if you have any questions.
