MINI STICKS 

Intro to lacrosse for boys and girls ages 3.5-8

Mini Sticks is a lacrosse experience designed to introduce 3.5-8 year old kids to the game of lacrosse in a fun, supportive way - while also teaching them how to be their best self on and off the field. Equipment is provided, but feel free to bring your own! Energetic coaches teach skills in a participatory and age-appropriate manner using creative games and exercises. The goal is to teach basic lacrosse skills while developing physical literacy in a supportive setting. We discuss "super powers" each session - characteristics that make you a great lacrosse player AND person. Players will be grouped by age as of 8/31 (following school age cutoff), but if you have a request to be with friends we do our best to honor that!  Mini Sticks...BIG Fun!

WHO: Boys and girls  ages *3.5-8
WHERE:  RASSIE WICKER PARK (10 Rassie Wicker Dr. Pinehurst, NC 28374)

*We now welcome 3.5-year-olds at Mini Sticks! Sessions for 3/4 year olds are 45 minutes (vs. 1 hour) and are priced accordingly. We know kids develop at different speeds. Some of our littlest laxers may not be quite ready for Mini Sticks which is not a "parent and me" program - unlike SCOOPERS that is!  Please use your best judgement about which program you sign your player up for. 

USA Lacrosse Membership required for insurance purposes. Membership is good for 365 days from time of purchase and with it you also receive USL Magazine, discounts on other lacrosse items, and more benefits - find out more and register at www.uslacrosse.com
