Lessons-in-Lacrosse is the ALA’s province-wide, community-focused lacrosse initiative. Aimed at increasing participation in and awareness of lacrosse across the province, the Lessons-in-Lacrosse programs focus on learning the fundamentals and history of the sport, physical literacy, and, most of all, fun.

Lessons-in-Lacrosse consists of five different programs:

Lacrosse Literacy

  • Certified instructors who have experience coaching children and youth.
  • Educational aspects centered around the Indigenous roots of lacrosse, “The Medicine Game,” geography, and history.
  • Physical literacy covers A, B, and C (agility, balance, and coordination).
  • Fundamental movement skills correspond to the stages of the Long-Term Athlete Development plan in various environments.
  • Discovery of movements for dodging, shooting, passing, catching, and ground ball mechanics.

Lacrosse Roots

Our community-based program partners with Indigenous groups and leaders to bring lacrosse back to where it began.


An option to include with any of the Lessons-in-Lacrosse programs so partners may learn the fundamentals of the sport to implement additional lacrosse-based programming on their own.
