Live, Love, Lax Academy:
We are excited to announce the launch of our brand new Live, Love, Lax Academy. The Live, Love, Lax Academy was created out of the need to teach NEW players in grades 5-8 the game of lacrosse in a welcoming, stress free and judgment free environment. Through the years it has become evident that new players joining veteran players are not getting the attention they need to learn the skills as well as the rules of lacrosse. By allowing new players in grades 5-8 to work together with seasoned coach and Program Director Kerry Morrison we expect a positive reaction to the sport and a drive to play for many years to come. We want our players coming out of the Academy to embrace our mantra- Live, Love, Lax!
Details for the Live, Love, Lax Academy:
ALL NEW Lacrosse players in grades 5-8 must sign up for the Live, Love, Lax Academy. Practices will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays, time and place TBD.
