The FLYL first grade program is designed to continue to develop and enhance the basic fundamentals of the game while introducing additional team concepts and rules. The program will be low-key and continue to focus on player development and instilling confidence, sportsmanship, as well as enjoyment and respect for the game of lacrosse. After 1 hour of skills and drills, and when they are ready, the in-house teams will scrimmage against one another for the remaining time.
SEASON: April through June 4th
PRACTICES: Saturdays,1:00 - 2:00pm
GAMES: Small-sided games and scrimmages as the season progresses. We will plan to have a few mini jamborees with 1st & 2nd graders playing together (7v7 no goalie) against other local teams.
LOCATION: Rippowam Cisqua School
COACHES: Robbie Len, Varsity and JV players
EQUIPMENT: Girls’ Lacrosse stick, girls’ protective eyewear, and mouthguard are all required
Eye Guards - Protective eyewear use is required in girls' lacrosse and must meet the current ASTM standard, F3077-17. (There must be marking on both the packaging and product that states that the eyewear conforms to ASTM standard F3077.)
Sticks - We have found having the appropriate stick is essential in the development of our young players. We strongly recommend all players at the K-3 grade level purchase and play with a stick that has current technology, with a ready to play optimal pocket for quick release and easy catching capabilities.
Mouth-guards - Approved mouthguards are required for all games and practices.
Goalie Chest Protectors - Effective 1/1/21, all goalie chest protectors must be designed for lacrosse and meet the NOCSAE performance standard, ND200. (FLYL will have one chest protector per team equipment bag, but if your daughter has ambition to play goalie, we do recommend that you purchase one specifically for your daughter).
UNIFORMS - All Players will receive a practice pinnie at the first practice.
