2021 Program Descriptions

2021 will bring some challenges for the programming that will be available to athletes. While the goal of the UMLA is to continue to follow the  Athlete Development Model as laid out by the CLA and US Lacrosse, the current pandemic situation will force us to modify our programs. 

At the moment the only registration option available will be Try Lacrosse. We encourage everyone interested in playing lacrosse this season to register for the Try Lacrosse as there is no fee involved. This will also assist us with planning our various age groups for the season and developing a plan for programming for the various age groups. This applies for all new players, returning players, Rep players. If you wish to play lacrosse with the UMLA this season please register for the Try Lacrosse

Below are descriptions of the programs that would be run under a normal playing season. These programs will be modified as needed to meet the OLA Return to Activity Guidelines. Dates of programming will be announced once we confirm fields, facilities and player registration numbers.

Soft Lacrosse (players aged 3 and 4 years old)

This program is an introduction to sports and in particular lacrosse. The program will run Monday nights for 45 minutes. 

This program will demonstrate and reinforce the core skills of sport and lacrosse using a lot of play based methodology.

There are no traditional games at this age, but rather the opportunity to have fun during the programming time.

There is no contact or stick checking at this age.

Paperweights (players aged 5 and 6 years old) 

This program builds on the core skills of passing, catching and scooping. 

Sessions will be split between skills sessions and informal games. These games will be 3 versus 3 cross floor similar to the initiation level of hockey.

U9 (players aged 7 and 8)

This program builds on the core skills of passing, catching and scooping. 

Sessions will be split between skills sessions and informal games. These games will be 3 versus 3 cross floor similar to the initiation level of hockey. If the level of skill is sufficient we will consider going full floor 4 v 4 with volunteer goalies for the latter part of the program.

The outdoor sessions will begin to introduce the field game to the children. As the skills progress we will look to modify the structure of the games.
