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:

  • 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.
