Format: 7v7 - six field players and one goalkeeper. 2 - 20 minute running time halves. The emphasis is on developing stick skills, so passing and catching is emphasized, along with position defense (similar to basketball). Poke checks are strongly encouraged as the only check to use in the lower age groups, as they just do not have the physical ability to accurately and cleanly check in other fashions yet.
Time: One session/hour per week. One game each week only, no practices.
Practice Dates: September 1-12, at least one practice session. Possibly two.
Game Dates: September 13-November 23, ten games scheduled. We are stopping before Thanksgiving this year. There were too many conflicts the week of Thanksgiving, and after, with school concerts, vacations, and other such madness.

BOX LACROSSE: 6v6
The second offering is Box Lacrosse training. The training sessions will be held Sunday afternoons at NERRC. They will be split for grades 5/6, and 7/8. Sessions run for six weeks, and will be taught and facilitated by Casey Connor and Tom Marachek. Google both of those names, and you'll find some players with some really great histories on the lacrosse field. This is totally separate from our regular indoor league. It is 6v6, five field players and one goalkeeper. There are no offsides, and the entire game flows far more like basketball than field lacrosse. A few of our boys participated in this training program last year, and I was impressed enough with their improvement, as well as the teaching ability of the coaches involved to incorporate it within the PH offerings for this fall.
Format: 6v6 - five field players and one goalkeeper. The emphasis is on developing stick skills, so passing and catching is emphasized, along with position defense (similar to basketball). Players are taught specific close quarters skills to improve their abilities.
Time: One session per week for six weeks. 90 minutes per session. Roughly 60 minutes of instruction, and 30 minutes of scrimmage.
Dates: Sunday afternoons. There will be two six week sessions. Specific dates to be announced in a few days.
Number of registrants: Still pending, but it will be limited to maximize instructional interaction.
Age limits: LIMITED TO PLAYERS CURRENTLY IN GRADES 5 - 8
If your son wishes to do this, and it does not conflict with his in-season sport, sign him up. If it DOES conflict with his in-season sport, DO NOT REGISTER, as you will be taking away that spot from someone else.
As always, if you have any questions, please ask.
Remember the registration for Indoor will open July 20, promptly at 8 AM. Online registration only.
