Registration remains open for the BaggataGirls™ Summer Camp (www.baggatagirlslacrosse.com), which will take place at Wilson Park in Wayne from June 29th through July 3rd. The camp is open to girls entering Grades 3-9. Registration will close as soon as numbers dictate, so please sign up soon.
BaggataGirls™ Lacrosse teaches the skills of lacrosse using novel drills, concepts and language players can understand, relate to and retain – all in a high energy and supportive setting. The program is not tied to any club or school team. It is agnostic in that regard. The sole agenda is to teach girls the FUNdamentals, but with a Flair…
The program will feature the full gamut of station work to teach all the skills and will include a special emphasis on short-sided scrimmaging to help participants learn to be complete lacrosse players, not just positional players.
This is not a cookie cutter curriculum. We stress traditional staples but will introduce certain groups to Canadian/Box lacrosse concepts and explore what is possible with the stick and a ball. BaggataGirls™ training transfers knowledge, maximizes touches and is designed to help players thrive in the style of play that has emerged in girls’ lacrosse. Our goal, in a condensed time frame, is to help the girls advance at an accelerated rate. Our hope is to instill or further develop confidence and a passion for the game.
The camp will be organized and led by Co-Directors Amy Orcutt, head coach at Conestoga High School, and Scott Growney, former Mesa Fresh / PennStar coach and co-founder of BaggataGirls™ Lacrosse. Register soon and see why experience is the best teacher — https://mytournamentregistration.com/baggatagirls/players.php. All are welcome to join the fun and enjoy the new wave (and new ways) in girls’ lacrosse training.
