Late summer and autumn are a great time of year to play lacrosse, and this is an ideal opportunity for new and advanced players to play the best sport in the world. We are thrilled to offer grade-specific levels for Fall Ball this year. The format of each session will be skills and drills followed by a scrimmage. A major goal of this program is the make it fun for our young players, and as such we run some fun games and activities throughout each session.We will have certified coaches on hand each week and many of our Rep Girls & Women are volunteering their time to help mentor all the participants. There will be an information table on site and we look forward to seeing all the girls at check-in.
Fall Ball events are played rain or shine and cancellation will only occur if there is active lightning in the area. We will use TeamSnap to send emails and texts to communicate cancellations or postponements.
