The Bandits, Lake Forest & Lake Bluff’s own girls lacrosse program is excited to announce their lacrosse clinics / skill sessions type clinics/camps for 1st & 2nd grade players.  It is our hope to help develop young players joy of the game at an early age and build on those skills throughout our program. We hope to create good lacrosse experience that we will build upon.  This program will focus on building strength/coordination, balance, and fundamental athleticism.  This Spring we will work up to small sided competitions (3 v 3) to help give the younger players a feel for the game.  To play lacrosse the girls must first develop the coordination, strength, and balance needed to be successful and have a great outcomes.  Fun is the most important part of our Rookies program- if they are having fun they will continue to grow and learn.
