U13 Philosophy and Format
The U13 Division has been established to promote a fun and positive experience with the sport of lacrosse. Athletes use the following format:
We play all players as equally as possible with the goal of teaching the sport and providing a fun experience for all involved.
All activities are structured using Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) principles.
We emphasize fun, positive sportsmanship, and an active environment.
A skill assessment session will be held in late April. A player draft will be conducted and parents contacted about team placement before the season begins.
Practices are coordinated by each team coach and occur one evening per week. Practices are focused on skill development.
The season runs through the months of May and June.
We want to build a love and respect for the sport of lacrosse.
U13 games are played using a â€œlimited contact within 9 feet of the ballâ€ version of field lacrosse.
