September Beginner Clinics

Published by:

Due to popular demand and recently acquired field space, Atlanta Youth Lacrosse is excited to announce our September Beginner Clinics for boys grades 3rd-6th. These clinics are open to beginner players, i.e. players of one year experience or less, and are held at Hammond Park in Sandy Springs.

The September Beginner Clinics will focus on building basic skills that each player needs to be successful at lacrosse. We will teach: cradling, ground balls, catching, passing, dodging, and shooting. These skills will build on one another each clinic and each week. The goal is to make each player who shows up feel confident in the fundamental skills of lacrosse.

The SBCs are free-of-charge and will be taught to any beginner player that wants to show up at the appointed times below. We recommend players show up 10-15 minutes early for introductions and to get their gear on. Any questions about the SBCs may be sent to info@ayllax.com.

NOTE – These clinics are only open to 3rd-6th graders. We have limited weekly field space, and players under third grade will learn a basic skill during group warm-ups each weekend.

Clinics will run on the following Tuesdays and Thursdays:

  • 9/13 and 9/15
  • 9/20 and 9/22
  • 9/27 and 9/29

The times and groups are as follows:

  • 3rd & 4th grade: 4:30-5:25pm
  • 5th & 6th grade: 5:30-6:25pm

Players will need to bring:

  • All gear required for a game (equipment page)
  • Personal water bottle (we will have a cooler at the field just in case)
  • Enthusiasm (nothing beats a player who is willing to learn)

Once the September Beginner Clinics conclude on the 29th, Atlanta Youth Lacrosse will offer position-specific clinics in October. Information on those clinics including price and how to register will come out in later posts and newsletter communications. Again, all questions may be sent to info@ayllax.com.

Cheers,
Gordon
