Description of each of our grade based programs:

**All Programs will follow US Lacrosse's LADM (Lacrosse Athlete Development Model)**

More info on this model can be found at USLacrosse.org

Grades 1st and 2nd (1/2):
This age group offers fundamental instruction with lots of opportunity to touch the ball and have FUN. Our goal is to introduce proper techniques to cradling, catching, throwing, scooping, shooting, playing defense and having fun. These girls will participate in an early season lacrosse clinic hosted by the Unionville High School Lacrosse Team. Games will be 4v4 play taking place at Patton Middle School during practice and also a couple play days with outside competition.  Play days are mini games, played in a round robin format on Saturdays only. Parent volunteers/new coaches are needed here for practices to improve the coach to player ratio and allow the most amount of player interaction possible.

 


Grades 3rd and 4th (3/4)
This age group offers fundamental instruction with lots of opportunity to touch the ball and have FUN. Our goal is to

Grades 5th and 6th (5/6)
This age group also offers fundamental instruction with lots of opportunity to touch the ball and have FUN. Our goal is to introduce proper techniques to cradling, catching, throwing, scooping, shooting, playing defense and having fun to new players and continue to advance the skills of experienced players.  These girls will participate in an early season lacrosse clinic hosted by the Unionville High School Lacrosse Team. Games will be in tradition style (11v11 with a goalie) and will be played at Patton and other PAGLA team sites on Saturdays and possibly a couple Sundays.  No more than 1 hour travel for games. Teams are leveled and will compete at the B level of the PAGLA league.  There is potential for players from all the teams to be asked to form an additional team to participate in some A level games.  

 

Grades 7th and 8th (7/8)

This age group is for experienced players.  Players are usually participating on Patton's Middle School team after school every day so only a few practices are held for this group.  Games are played on Saturdays and some Sundays.  There are a maximum of two teams at this age group and depending on the skill of players there may be an A level team and a B level team.  Each year will require appropriate evaluation of this.
