Boy's Lacrosse. (Ages 8-14, excluding high school students)
Practices will be held at Lakeshore Park on Lyons View. In the spring, practices are conducted on Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings, with occasional practices held on Tuesday evenings. In the fall, practices are held on Monday and Thursday evenings. All practice sessions are held on Anderson Field and Pool Field. Lights are used for practices in the fall. Restrooms are nearby. Special KYS reversible lacrosse jerseys are provided to all registered players.
Boy's lacrosse begins on Thursday, March 5th and ends on Saturday, May 9th. Thursday practices are from 5:45 to 7:30pm. Saturday practices are from 9:45am to noon. Occasionally, one-hour skill-building sessions are conducted on Tuesdays from 5:45 to 6:45pm (the focus is on individual stick work, goalie play, face-offs, etc.). All players must be on time for practice and show up dressed in full lacrosse gear (including mouth guard). Lacrosse is a contact sport and thus full gear is required. Bring ample water for hydration.
Our primary program focus is teaching the great game of lacrosse to youth who are new to the game or may have several years of experience. We emphasize skill-building (passing, catching, cradling, dodging, shooting, defending), groundball scooping, and team offense and defense. We stress the fundamentals! We teach and enforce the rules of lacrosse and good sportsmanship! Intra-squad games are held on Saturdays, and several outside scrimmages are scheduled with local teams comparable in age and ability. All players must wear full gear (including mouth guard) in order to partake in any practices and scrimmages.
KYS coaches love the game of lacrosse and enjoy teaching lacrosse to interested and motivated youth. They have extensive experience playing and coaching lacrosse with youth programs, high school teams, and college teams. We are teacher/coaches! We enjoy having parents and family members attend practices and supporting their sons from the sideline.
Please feel free to contact coach Denis Tippo with any questions (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Registration should be done directly on the KYS website. Registration questions will be answered by Wayne Christensen, Executive Director (email@example.com). Fee: $175.
