Bandits Program For The Youngest Players

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 in game-like scrimmages to help give the younger players a feel for the game.
