The Alberta Lacrosse Association is ecstatic about the launch of our Lacrosse in School program! The program will allow students of elementary age groups to experience the fast-paced and exhilarating game of lacrosse in an intimate, interactive, and educational atmosphere.
The program will introduce students to the game of lacrosse and emphasize physical literacy while promoting a healthy lifestyle. Furthermore, we will speak on the importance of positive goal setting, as well as the importance of community and reciprocity. Additionally, the instructors will present the many opportunities that lacrosse can bring to individuals and by extension their communities such as educational opportunities, interpersonal and leadership skills, and respect.
The program itself consists of two separate sections. It begins with an introductory session where students will learn the rules of lacrosse, help instructors demonstrate proper skills, and learn the history of the game. The second portion consists of a gym class setting where students will have a hands-on experience with the game of lacrosse.
Along with a lacrosse skills demonstration and trick routine, instructors will cover a variety of topics including teamwork, community, healthy lifestyle choices, and positive goal setting.
