There is still time to register for the 3rd Annual ‘Stoga 5v5 Fall Lax Fest – a fun afternoon of small-sided games for girls in Grades 5-9 (graduation years 2020-2024), but registration will close Monday evening. All games are played in a participatory 5v5 ‘half-court’ format (4 field players plus goalie). Consider joining a nice variety of 6-10 member teams coming from as far away as Lewes (DE) and Lancaster.
The ‘half-court’ format is fast-paced with lots of touches and action on offense / defense / in transition. The small-sided format is “what’s in” from a player development standpoint!
The event, hosted by the Conestoga High School’s girls’ lacrosse team, will feature 6-10 member township/club teams, clinic sessions, multiple short-sided games, skill contests and a festive, supportive setting.
