Clinic Program Overview...

Clinic is open to all boys between the ages of 5 & 6.

The primary purpose of the Clinic program is to expand the fundamentals the boys were taught in Pockets while reinforcing fundamentals of the game (scooping, throwing & catching) with a basic introduction to offensive and defensive techniques.

The main difference between Pockets and Clinic is that the boys begin to wear pads (helmet, shoulder, arm pads, gloves, mouth piece & athletic cup) while playing. The boys will use real sticks, begin with a soft lacrosse ball then move to a real ball as the season progresses.

Clinic begins early March and will run through the weekend before Memorial Day. You can expect one weeknight practice and one Saturday morning practice, with each lasting about 1 hour. Exact weeknight schedules will be posted shortly, once we have final field assignments from the rec council.

Similar to Pockets, you can expect to begin the season primarily with practices, and then you will move to a practice/scrimmage format as the season progresses. We do not keep score, there is no body checking, but stick checking will be introduced slowly as the coaches feel the boys are ready.

Expect additional details to be posted on our website as we near the beginning of the season.

As always, if you have any questions thoughts or concerns please send us an email to:

Enjoy your season!


Spring Evaluations - Clinic...

The Clinic program does not hold evaluations as teams are typically selected to pair friends with one another. The Clinic program will begin play March 9th at Warren Place Park, see directions below:

Warren Place Park is located just north of Warren Road on York Road. Heading north on York Road, turn right on Bosley Avenue and just past the building on your left is a drvieway to the parking lot. There is additional parking available on Virginia Avenue to the east and Matthews Avenue to the north.

Rosters & Schedules...

Practice is scheduled to begin March 9th weather permitting. Rosters & Schedules will be posted the week before practice(once teams have been created). The Clinic program will practice Tuesday (Thursday in the event of rain on Tuesday) & Saturdays.

Equipment Requirements - Clinic...

Just wanted to send a quick reminder on the equipment requirements for each of our younger age groups.

The Clinic program is designed to make the transition from no pads to regular lacrosse a little easier. The boys will wear full pads in Clinic, and checking will be slowly introduced.

We suggest the following equipment for the Clinic program:

  • Helmet 
  • Shoulder pads
  • Rib pads
  • Arm pads
  • Gloves
  • Mouth piece & Cup

All the items above (minus the cup) are available in an equipment starter pack. Starter packs are available at Lax World. An adjustable helmet should be considered as it should last 3-4 years.

As always, if you have any questions, thoughts or concerns please send us an email to

We look forward to seeing everyone soon,
