ATTENTION: U7 Lax - Pre-K and Kindergartners!!


We have had some interest in a dedicated U7 (Pre-K and Kindergarteners) lacrosse program.  We would like to know how many people would be interested before we formally open registration for this age group. 



The U7 program would run 4 clinics (no games) on Sunday mornings from 8-9am on the middle field at Village School.  The clinics would be held on May 5, May 12, May 19 and June 2. At this age, the goal is to have fun, while learning some basic, but fundamental, lacrosse skills. Often times, the drills will not even require a stick, but it will get the girls moving and smiling!

The cost would be $55, which would cover the cost of the field, volunteer NCSI and CORI screens, equipment, paying the MHD lax players, and a t-shirt. 


We would need one or two parents who would be willing to be the Age Group Coordinator(s) for this program.  The responsibilities would include:

- Rounding up enough volunteer parent coaches for this age group (4-6 volunteers); 

- Ensuring certain legal and educational requirements are completed for every volunteer coach (NCSI and CORI screening, and Positive Coaching Alliance on-line course);

- Showing up ½ hour before practice with other coaches to set up field for practice;

- Developing weekly practice plan and communicating this to other coaches.

Additionally, we would need 4-6 parent volunteers to help organize and run fun drills and games.  If there is enough interest, we will work on hiring some MHD High School Lacrosse players to help coach as well.  

MHD Girls Youth Lax is a successful program thanks to its amazing parent volunteers.  Please consider volunteering, so we can make this program happen!! The responsibilities are not cumbersome, and remember, this is only a 4 week program!  As our Mission Statement states: we aim to promote girls youth lacrosse in an environment that emphasizes fun, while developing skills, teamwork, good sportsmanship, and integrity. It's all about FUN!


If you are interested in having your daughter participate in this program, and/or willing to volunteer, please contact Jess Hyde at   Jess will start a list, and if there are enough players, and volunteers, we will open a registration link and be in touch with those interested.
