Longmeadow Girls Lacrosse - What to expect

Our season will begin in mid-March and end by early June.  Our teams compete against other Massachusetts and Connecticut town programs, Longmeadow teams in our program, and will participate in several jamborees and tournaments. The majority of jamborees and tournaments are not mandatory and none require additional payments. These are meant to provide additional playing opportunities. 

 

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.
  • A typical week will include 2-4 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.

 

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.
