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 6th

EQUIPMENT: Girls’ Lacrosse stick, girls’ protective eyewear, and mouthguard are all required
Eye Guards - 2021 US Lacrosse has new guidelines for complaint Eye Guards. All FLYL players MUST have NOCSAE approved Eye Guards.
Sticks - We have found having the appropriate stick is essential in the development of our young players. We strongly recommend any 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 mouthguard are required for all games and practices.
Goalie Chest Protectors - 2021 US Lacrosse has new guidelines for complaint Girls Goalie Chest Protectors. All FLYL girls goalies MUST have NOCSAE approved Chest Protectors (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.
