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 (Fall is only for our 2nd graders).  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.

Parents of 1st & 2nd grade girls,
Register soon for the popular Bandits Lacrosse—your “go-to” local lacrosse program serving Lake Forest and Lake Bluff.  We have over 150 girls on our Bandits teams in 3rd grade thru 8th grade last year. We are now offering a short seven week programs (in Spring), for 1st & 2nd graders to help introduce them to the basics of lacrosse. We are enrolling only 2nd graders in the Fall program.
At these young ages it is important to get the players working on their coordination, strength, and balance as well as basic lacrosse skills.  We like to say “The Right Lacrosse” at “The Right time”.  Our hope is to help build your daughters love of lacrosse at an early age and build on those strengths throughout the years.
Please come and join us for Bandits ROOKIES Lacrosse!
