About the Program
The number one “development plan” for youth sports is fun. When kids have fun, they keep coming back for more. We also measure success by the enthusiasm with which players approach the game, the lacrosse fundamentals they develop, and the respect they have for themselves, coaches, teammates and opponents.

Our Youth Development Plans
Nurturing our young players
We currently have five youth development plans that can be used by coaches to nurture a young player. Each plan covers proficiency, developing and exposure level skills. Game strategy and tactics are increasingly emphasized as the players progress through the different levels.
We have development plans for female lacrosse players of all ages:
- 6U Development Plan (Pre-K/Kinder) – This is an introductory course for the youngest players who are new to lacrosse.
- Scoopers Development Plan (1st/2nd Grade) – Athletes continue to work on the fundamentals while learning more stick and passing skills as well as the rules of the game.
- Lightening Development Plan (3rd/4th Grade) – Slightly older athletes build on their knowledge by learning more defense and offense skills.
- Juniors Development Plan (5th/6th Grade) – Higher level training like fast breaks and position specialty skills are learned in this upper level development plan.
- Seniors Development Plan (7th/8th Grade) – Middle school athletes will learn advanced maneuvers and prepare for high school level competition.
