Our kindergarten grade program is designed to introduce the game of lacrosse and teach the fundamentals, while striving to maximize player enthusiasm and a love for the sport. The commitment is minimal, but the experience is priceless. Kindergarten players will not be participating in games or mini-jam events as they are not ready at this age to be in games with other towns. This season we will focus on the basics of the game and having FUN!!
SEASON: April through June 5th
PRACTICES: Saturdays 1:00-2:00pm (SUBJECT TO CHANGE)
LOCATION: Rippowam Cisqua School
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.
