Introduction to Lacrosse-Girls Spring 2016


Join IGLA (Illinois Girls Lacrosse Association) for a weekly 1 hour clinic for the younger girl lacrosse player. These clinics are exclusively for K - 2nd grade girls that want to learn the fundamentals of lacrosse. The goals of this program are to introduce lacrosse and develop basic skills for the youngest girl player, using fun games and coaching techniques. No equipment needed. IGLA will have equipment to borrow for all clinics.

Parents are encouraged to attend to learn along with their daughter & assist coaches with drills. Soft balls are used so mouth guard/goggles are not required. Players will need a stick. Please email information if you would like to borrow one.

Volunteers: If you have an interest in being a ‘Parent Volunteer Coach,’ click on the volunteer tab at Illinois Girls Lacrosse Association (IGLA) website. NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY! Training classes available.

Please Note: The participant must bring the Recreation Department paid receipt to the first day of the league as proof of payment.
