Brownsburg Lacrosse

2020 8U Little LAXers Rec League

REGISTRATION OPENS 3/11 -- REGISTRATION DEADLINE IS 4/12 -- FIRST SESSION STARTS 4/19

PLEASE READ ALL INFORMATION... dates, times, requirements, and equipment info is all detailed below

Brownsburg Lacrosse is excited to announce our lacrosse offering for boys and girls born between 9/1/2011 and 8/31/2014 (generally kids in K thru 2nd grade) who live in the Brownsburg, Danville and Tri-West school districts.

US Lacrosse has recently launched a new initiative to help guide programs like ours in the introduction of the sport to beginning players... and to train them in age-appropriate ways to retain those players.  Read more about the Lacrosse Athlete Development Model here - http://www.uslacrosse.org/athlete-development.

A key component of early lacrosse development is offering small-sided opportunities... which is exactly what Little LAXers strives to be.

Our plan for this 7-session series is to teach beginning lacrosse skills over the course of 4 practice sessions, then for the next 2 sessions, we will practice for the first half of the session then play actual games.  The final session will be a double-header of games to wrap up the league.  Games will be four 8-minute quarters.

-- Number of teams and players per team will be determined after registration is closed, but the plan will be for teams of 6-8 players, with 3-4 players on the field at once with a minimum number of attempted passes required so all players are involved in game play.
-- Games will be played on short fields with small goals and NO GOALIES.  
-- Soft lacrosse balls will be used, so no protective equipment will be needed... except for a mouthguard. 
-- Each child should have a stick of their own... a shortened standard lacrosse stick (boys or girls) or a fiddle stick (miniature version of a std lacrosse stick) is preferable.  We will have sticks for use during the sessions, but having their own stick will allow them to practice at home.

After registration closes, we may  reach out to other nearby programs (Zionsville, Avon) which are running similar programs to see if they would like to play a game against us.

Current Brownsburg HS players may help us as referees for the games.

-- In the event of any rain-outs or weather cancellations, we will look to extend the sessions occurring afterwards to try to make up some of the time.

All practices/games will be held at Maloney Field, which is on the Northside of Brownsburg, just East of 267.  Full directions provided to all participants later.

Each player MUST have a valid US Lacrosse membership ($30) - link: http://www.uslacrosse.org/membership. The 12-digit membership number (5 leading zeroes, 7 digits) is required during registration, so please do this step prior to registering.

Cost for the 7-week session is $65 and each player will receive a Brownsburg Lacrosse Little Laxers 8U League shirt, sticker, and car magnet.

Parents, the long-term sustainability of our entire youth lacrosse organization depends as much on our volunteer parent coaches as it does on players to play the game.  If you are interested in learning the basics of the sport and would like to coach, please indicate it during registration.  Brownsburg Lacrosse reimburses training costs for the coaches of our competitive teams at the 10U level and above, so this is a perfect chance to learn some basic lacrosse info. Please reach out for additional information.

Please share with anyone who might be interested.
