Longmeadow Lacrosse Jamboree

at

Longmeadow High School

Please note - New Date and New Location!! 

 

 

2018/19 Longmeadow Girls Lacrosse

 Program Overview

The Longmeadow Girls Lacrosse Association's philosophy is to expose young girls to great game of lacrosse!  We want them to develop a love for the game that will carry them through all their years!  We will teach them a foundation of skills they will build on each year they play.   We do this through by evenly balancing our youth team rosters from grades 3-8.   We don't tier teams, create A/B teams, travel teams, or any of the other popular terms common to the youth sports landscape.  We provide opportunities for all of our players to play in many different settings.

 

New for 2019

First, our game schedule will start in early April, sooner than in past years.  

Second. LHS Coach Steve Dudeck and LHS Girls Varsity Players will run short sided "Play Days" during the month of May.  No need to sign up and no extra charge.  Details TBA as we get closer.  

Third, this year we will include a registration question for optional participation on LGLA tournament teams.   We don't need a definite commitment, but we do need a commitment of interest.  There may be some travel involved but tourney details and dates will not be available at the time of registration.  Some tournaments will be competitive and others will be a jamboree format.  Each will provide opportunities to play new faces, new towns and to improve as lacrosse players and people.  We will establish rosters appropriate for each tournament. 

 

Longmeadow Girls' Lacrosse - What to expect

Participate in one of Longmeadow’s most popular youth athletic programs for players of all skill levels in 3rd grade thru 8th grade.

Longmeadow Girls' Lacrosse Association (LGLA) provides an athletic program that promotes a positive well balanced coaching philosophy, emphasizing sportsmanship and fair play while teaching valuable life skills in a fun, safe, supportive, instructional environment. It doesn’t matter if you have ever played, the objective of LGLA is for participants to learn the exciting game of lacrosse with emphasis on having fun, personal development, and respect for themselves, their teammates, opponents, refs, and their coaches.

The season starts in early March with a few indoor events and ends no later than June 3. Our home fields are Wolf Swamp fields or and Glenbrook Middle School, and in surrounding communities. 

 

Bantam Division (3rd & 4th Grade)

  • The Bantam players will be placed on teams with an even mix of 3rd and 4th graders.  
  • The Bantam program will have a strong focus on instructional lacrosse and drills that emphasize skill development.
  • We do not keep score and there are no standings.
  • A typical week will include 3-4 lacrosse events. 
  • An event is either a game or practice. 
  • Specific practice and game times have not yet been established and will vary.
  • There will be both in-town games and games against other area towns.

Juniors (5th & 6th Grade) and Seniors (7th & 8th Grade)

  • Junior and Senior teams are established through a draft. 
  • Teams are all mixed grade and evenly balanced as mandated by our league and LGLA. 
  • Strong focus on skills and fun.  All participants welcome. 
  • We do not keep score and there are no standings.
  • Typical week will include 3-4 lacrosse events.  An event is eithere a practice or a game.
  • Specific practice and game times are not established and will vary based on the avialability of our volunteer coaches.
  • There will be in-town and games against other area towns.

 

Volunteer coaches

We are lucky to have a great volunteer coaching staff and your daughters will learn a lot about the game. We encourage parents to volunteer as assistant coaches to learn the game along with your daughters.  Experienced coaches will help you learn all you need to know about the game and this will hopefully lead to many taking on lead coaching roles in the future.  Starting at the Bantam level is ideal as this is when everyone is developing their lacrosse knowledge and no one is expected to be a lacrosse expert.  Everyone is learning together.
