CLINICS > K- 6th GRADE > Main Line, PA
FALL 2017 INFORMATION WILL BE UPDATED SUMMER 2017
Girls brand new to lacrosse or seeking an introductory refresher will be taught the basic fundamentals of the game: scooping, cradling, throwing, catching and shooting using plastic scoop sticks and balls. Lots of fun drills and games will keep the girls moving through this high-energy hour! In addition to outstanding lacrosse instruction tailored to young children, SCOOP Clinics provide all equipment for each session. The equipment provided includes a stick with a soft, all-plastic head with a molded pocket and soft balls. The sticks are easy for youngsters to handle and allow more success with scooping, cradling and catching at young ages. The balls are soft plastic and are larger than regulation lacrosse balls, again providing greater ease of handling. Most importantly, the sticks and balls allow increased safety for young Scoopers versus regulation sticks and balls. SCOOP Clinics also provide sufficient numbers of goals and "props" for various games played during sessions.
This hour is designed for girls in 1st and 2nd grade who have had at least one scoop lacrosse session and feel ready to advance to using a regulation girls stick and wearing goggles and a mouth guard. Fundamentals of the game (scooping, cradling, throwing, catching, shooting and defense) will be stressed as the girls become accustomed to their new equipment. The girls will play fun drills and games in a small group setting where they get many touches on the ball.
Third and fourth grade girls will build on their skills during this action-packed hour! The focus will be on fundamentals (scooping, cradling, throwing, catching, shooting and defense), while some more advanced concepts such as team defense will be introduced. Girls will be divided into small groups based on skill level and will have many touches on the ball in fun games, drills and scrimmages.
Fifth and sixth graders will work on fundamentals as well as advanced individual and team concepts. The goal is to maximize touches on the ball for quicker skill development. Small-sided games and drills will be stressed.
