SKILL DEVELOPMENT STARTS FRIDAY, APRIL 16, 2021
**SEEKING PARENT VOLUNTEERS - NO LAX EXPERIENCE NECESSARY**
The Milton Youth Lacrosse Girls Skills Development program is for girls in grades 1 & 2. Practice is held once per week, on Friday evenings, 6:15-7:15pm, starting April 16, 2021. This program is a great way to introduce girls to lacrosse in a non-competitive environment. It is a chance to foster a love of the game in a fun way, while teaching the critical skills of women’s lacrosse, including throwing, catching, ground balls, cradling and more!
Skills Development program starts mid-April, is played outdoors, and runs for 8 sessions.
In the event of a cancelation due to weather, we will announce via email. Field closures will also be posted at www.miltonlacrosse.org in green/yellow/red on the right side of the homepage.
Practices are broken into smaller groups and rotate to different skill stations throughout the practice. While we don't have formal games at this age, the girls will have a chance to scrimmage during throughout the session.
Parents interested in volunteering to coach are welcome and encouraged to register and have a chance to learn lacrosse with their girls, no prior lacrosse experience is necessary!!
Registration opens in March. Milton Youth Lacrosse Registration for Grade 1&2 Girls. Registration cost is $120, which includes a Milton Youth Lacrosse practice pinnie and insurance for your daughter (for former players, please note that a separate US Lacrosse membership with insurance is no longer a requirement)

- Click on the following link for: Tips on buying a girls lacrosse stick. We have also included links below to save you time searching online.
- Lacrosse goggles. All of the places we provided below have goggles. Some of the kids versions are quite small - parent tip - have your daughter try them on before buying.
- Mouth guard.
- Sturdy athletic shoes are a must. We recommend cleats as the fields can get slick with spring weather conditions, but sneakers are fine too.
- Water bottle.
- A positive attitude :-)
