LACROSSE

FASTEST GROWING TEAM SPORT in the WORLD !

WHY DO BOYS AND GIRLS LOVE THE SPORT?
 
It includes the best features of the most popular sports:

 
      Soccer – similar positions and tactics, but much faster, more scoring.
      Basketball – defensive play, everyone involved
      Football – limited body contact (not girls or youngest boys)
      Baseball & Tennis – eye/hand coordination
      Track – speed & endurance
 
MOST OF ALL IT’S FUN TO PLAY!

Lacrosse players are considered to be ELITE ATHLETES because of the unique skills they have mastered. Unlike most sports, every player must have all of the basic skills. Colleges know this.

Grades 2 thru 12 can begin anytime; game season starts Spring 2014.


 
WHY SHOULD PARENTS LOVE LACROSSE?
            
     (besides all of the above)

     Players become better citizens: US Lacrosse and Positive Coaching Alliance 
    coaches training emphasize “Respect the Game” which leads to:

              >> Sportsmanship >> Teamwork
              >> Leadership >> Decision Making


College Opportunities:

In the last eight years more than 30% of the colleges added lacrosse to their sports menu: 3 times as much as other sports. They will be have to work hard to keep those teams populated: that means more opportunities for Nevada County lacrosse players.
