Tyke Info

Tyke begins to teach the players the individual skills necessary to play lacrosse. Skill instructions and drills are done with little or no pressure to teach throwing, catching, pickups, cradling, loose balls, and checking. Goalies are taught how to pass the ball out of the crease. Players are taught to play their proper sides on offence and defence. They are taught to come all the way back on defense and to push check when necessary. There is a 2-pass rule before shooting on net. Players are provided with a team jersey.  Goalie Equipment (chest protector and shin pads) and goalie jersey is provided to each team by BMLA.  When it is your child’s turn to play in net, you will have bring along a pair of hockey pants to wear with the goalie equipment.  Your coach may offer to keep a pair in the goalie bag although sizing could be an issue.


Overview

  • ‚ÄčThe team schedule will be posted on the website on your team page under the Game Schedule button.

Practices:
