We are very excited to kick off the 2021 Intramural (IM) Youth Lacrosse season at the end of April / beginning of May!

 

The IM program is co-ed open to Kindergarten and combined Grades 1 and 2 (combined). We give the players the best experience by focusing on developing a strong fundamental base supported by a competitive recreational game schedule. Our coaches work with players directly to teach the fundamentals of the game: throwing, catching, cradling, scooping, dodging, shooting, in a competitive and friendly environment 

 

We focus on a small-field experience, typically 7 v. 7, to accelerate skill development and increase player participation. In addition to our instructional practices and IM games, in the past we have enhanced our IM season with opportunities to welcome teams from neighboring communities. Due to COVID-19, it is unlikely that games with other nearby Towns will be possible.
