This will be a combined 7/8th grade group this year for various reasons. They will have a modified game schedule (weekend games only) and limited practice times (once a week) due to the boys’ involvement in school athletics. Historically, the kids have played both modified and youth, and had a great time together with a slimmed down schedule for youth. We strongly encourage the kids to play both if they can. The 7th/8th grade program is designed to build on skills and fundamentals by introducing offensive and defensive strategies and plays. Our goal is for all players to have fun, develop as lacrosse players and athletes and learn what it means to be a part of a team.
PRACTICES: TBD, 1-2 Day a week @ FLMS modified field.
SEASON: April through June 4th.
GAMES: ONLY WEEKEND GAMES. 7/8 games and ½ tournaments. Planning on working around modified schedule for the boys. Kids have been given permission to play both youth and scholastic, but scholastic teams comes first. ALL SUBJECT TO CHANGE
