Winter Beginners Program

Big Dog Lacrosse beginners sessions are for the beginner lacrosse player or someone with limited playing experience.  Through these training sessions, youth and parents will learn how to play lacrosse and have an understanding of lacrosse fundamentals. These are for the player that has never played lacrosse before and wants to try the game. Big Dog Lacrosse is giving kids the opportunity to play the sport of lacrosse even in places where lacrosse is not currently available.

Skills Taught: cradling, scooping, catching, throwing, shooting, and dodging.

Participants: kids just trying the game, parents, players with limited playing experience.

Equipment: a lacrosse stick will be needed. One can be purchased at Play It Again Sports located in the Belden Village Area.

For the Lacrosse Player
Each youth player will complete this course with a knowledge of the basic skills needed to play lacrosse. They will be instructed by a US Lacrosse certified instructor.

For Parents
The instructional lessons are for parents also. Come get a hands-on lesson in what the kids are doing on the field. Parents are encouraged to gain knowledge about the sport so they can play with their children at home and have the confidence to help them improve. The sessions are also designed to teach parents interested in getting involved in their local local team by serving as an assistant coach or in some other capacity.

After the Class
If the players really like the sport and want to continue, they will be able to participate in the "Nothin' but Skillz" sessions so they can get some actual field time before they play with their school team. This will provide them a valuable experience to practice their skills. The fee would be $105.00 for the remaining weeks. Please visit the Nothin but Skillz page for detailed information such as dates and times.
