CRADLE BABIES (1-2 Years, Parent/Child Class)
Together, toddlers and their parents explore lacrosse through basic movement in a fun and engaging way that builds an appreciation for physical activity and helps develop fine and gross motor skills. Classes include parachute activities, endless songs, games, and bubbles!

TINY TOTS (2-3½ Years, Parent/Child Class)
Focused on learning lacrosse FUNdamentals, this high-energy class introduces children and their parents to organized games that develop the concept of teamwork, foster listening skills, and build hand-eye coordination.

FIDDLESTICKS (3½-4 Years)
Establishing independence in play is a key component of Fiddlesticks. Children explore movement (with and without the ball), develop agility, and master a groundball pickup while having fun and building a love for the fastest game on two feet in a noncompetitive, nurturing environment.

LAXAROOS (4-5 Years)
The perfect next step to teach your Lil’ Laxaroo the fundamentals of scooping, cradling, shooting, and teamwork. Classes are fun and fast-paced with small sided games to help prepare children for player development.
