The FLYL fourth grade program is designed to enhance player development and lacrosse fundamentals. Particular emphasis will be on improving lacrosse skills, overall team concepts, and understanding the rules of the game. The program is designed to improve player development and seeks to instill confidence, sportsmanship, as well as enjoyment and respect for the game of lacrosse. The fourth-grade program will include home and away games against neighboring youth programs. The general understanding is that kids are still trying different sports, however practice and game participation is expected. The number of teams will depend upon the number of girls that register.
