Registration is opening for the Lower Merion Lacrosse Club, a box lacrosse program for boys in Grades 1 to 3 that focuses on fun, fundamentals and participation.
Lower Merion residents can register now and non-Lower Merion residents can register beginning in two weeks. There are no cuts and anyone is welcome. No prior experience is welcome.
The Lower Merion Lacrosse Club (previously known as the Belmont Hills Lacrosse Club) will help boys learn fundamental stick skills, fundamental dodges (such as the face dodge, the roll dodge, the spin dodge, the bull dodge, and the split dodge), how to cradle, and offense and defense strategies.
Players will learn rules and strategy, off ball movement, defensive skills, offensive skills, and proper face off technique. Although this is a box lacrosse program, the fundamental skills developed will all carry over to the field lacrosse game.
Practices will be held on Wednesday nights on the roller hockey rink at McMoran Park, from 6:00 pm – 7:20 pm (there are lights). The season runs from Wednesday, September 15 through November, 3 2021. All players receive a reversible mesh jersey and shorts. What to bring: stick, gloves, elbow pads, helmet, shoulder pads, mouthguard, and sneakers.
