Our Little Xtremer summer program has open registration for all current 3rd and 4th grade players. Both experienced and beginner players may register. We'll have plenty of coaches available to divide players by ability and offer instruction appropriate to the level of play. Last summer's player to coach ratio was less than 6 to 1.
Cost for the summer is $150 for eight 1.5 hour practices and reversible Little Xtremer team pinnie. Schedule is on our website HERE. Any rained out practices will be rescheduled. Missing some is ok - we are flexible at this age!
We're working with our philly club friends to add 2 or 3 play days which will be added in June and July. Cost for these will be separate and depend on number playing. Estimated cost is $25 to $40 each.
The focus of the program is to offer younger players the opportunity to get a jump on learning proper fundamentals and game play so both their confidence in and enjoyment of playing the game increases. It's a 100% positive environment with an emphasis on both fun and learning. Program is directed by Coach Pinkerton and coached by current College players.
Below is a list of upcoming College Clinics. All schools use clinics as an opportunity to evaluate play as part of the recruiting process. For high school players, attending clinics at a school you are interested in is a great way to be seen and for you to see the school / campus and get a feel for the lacrosse environment there. Thanks Mark Weissend for the list!
Note that schools add clinics not always far in advance so check the websites of schools you are interested in regularly to see if a clinic has been added.
The Inter Collegiate Womens Lacrosse Coaches Association recently released a video with detailed info on the college recruting process. See the link to Video below.
