Who:Little Laxers (Boys) with Birthdates between 9/1/05 and 8/31/07.
What: Little Laxers 2!
When: August 18-22, 9:00am-11:00am
Where: Whistler Park (South Field), same location as Little Laxers 1.
This second session of Little Laxers for 2014 is open to all boys eligible by their birthdays. No experience is necessary, nor is participation in Little Laxers 1 earlier this year. At this age, almost all kids are new and nobody needs to “catch up” skill or knowledge-wise. All of our work revolves around our program motto: “Sportsmanship, Effort, Fun.” We include these themes every day.
We will work on many lacrosse-related skills through drills and games with local coaches. Our coaches all have experience working with young children and are great role models for growing athletes. Our staff has experience at the youth, high school, college, and even international level of play.
In round two, we will play new games and incorporate different drills so that anybody that was in Little Laxers 1 gets a brand-new experience while working on the fundamentals started in the first session.
Skills we will work on:
-Running, Coordination, General Athleticism
-Cradling, Ground Balls, Passing, and Catching with a Lacrosse Stick
-Offensive, Defensive, and Teamwork Basics, applicable to a variety of sports
-Basics of Lacrosse
-Throwing Water Balloons at Coaches
There is no prorating of the Registration Fee or any dropping-in. Parents need to decide if it is worth it based on how many days their player can attend. It is not a problem if a child misses days as far as camp goes.

Private Coaching is a new addition to Steamboat Youth Lacrosse. This is the most personalized, one-on-one coaching available through our program. Players can sign up for as little as one session, or set up a weekly routine with the coach of their choice. Please contact
to sign up!
Even though private coaching is new to SYL, all of our private coaches have a lot of one-on-one and small-group experience. Note that each session will have to be scheduled at a time that works for both the client and the coach, so be prepared to discuss a few time slots that work for you. Please see our coaches below, along with their accolades and the positions they are available to coach:
-Played Goalie at Colorado State University, Class of 2011
-Voted Team Defensive MVP (2011)
-2011 RMLC 2nd Team All-Conference
-All-State Honorable-Mention Face-Off Midfielder in High School
