Minisink Valley Youth Lacrosse, since 2004, provides a positive learning environment for the youth in the communtiy. The focus is on teaching the sport of lacrosse & instilling the values of sportsmanship, honesty & loyalty.
Coaches play a vital & significant role in youth sports. Most of us want our kids to participate in youth sports , and hope they have good coaches who will teach them the game & sportsmanship. Since lacrosse is a relatively new sport to most parents in our community, many are intimidated about the prospectives of coaching youth lacrosse. That is one of the purposes of our "SCOOPERS" K-2 division and 3/4 division - to allow parents to learn along the way with your child. Many Minisink youth coaches started that way. It is a fun way to learn a new sport and many experienced coaches are willing to help.
To support the recruitment of new coaches Minisink Youth Lacrosse is implementing a "Coaches Training Program".
The program includes:
* Invitation to participate in US Lacrosse coaching
clinic. Minisink Youth Lacrosse will pay registration
* Mentoring by an experienced coach
* Instructional Video Library at your disposal
* Practice Plans and Drills workshop with written
materials for reference
These tools will assist a new person to the sport in becoming more comfortable in helping guide young players at the start of their lacrosse experience.
Please contact us if you have any questions or are interested in signing up as a head coach or assistant coach. All age groups need coaching assistance so come on out and "Live The Game, Love The Game, LAX - The Game"
