Have a great week learning all about the exciting game of lacrosse in the Doylestown Lacrosse Camp! This camp is designed to introduce basic skills and help players understand the rules and style of the game. Coaches will use fun games to teach participants the fundamentals including scooping ground balls, throwing, catching, cradling, shooting and defending. Each day will include a practice portion to help skill development as well as modified, non-competitive games and tournaments. Checking will not be allowed and there will be zero physical contact. Face goggles, helmets, and pads will not be necessary. Children will be split by ages for all drills and game play. Boys sticks and softer lacrosse balls will be used for this camp, but children are welcome to bring their own sticks if they like.
Note: There are slight differences in competitive girls lacrosse and boys lacrosse. However, all basic skills are taught the same, except for a difference in cradling, which will be taught. Boys sticks are recommended for beginner players, as they allow for a higher success rate for skills. (Girls lacrosse sticks have a more shallow pocket, which makes catching more challenging, especially with a lighter ball.)
