Chaska Beginner / Intermediate Girls Lacrosse Clinics @ Chaska Middle School East
Feb 25 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

The Chaska High School girls varsity lacrosse coaching staff is offering a clinic series for beginner to intermediate players.  Whether you have played lacrosse for years or just want to start learning the sport now, this clinic is for you!  This training will help prepare players for what to expect from the Chaska High School program.  The coaching staff is determined to make this a fun, positive, and enjoyable experience for everyone with fun games, learning and making new friends.  There are two clinic sessions available:  Session A for 3rd-6th grades and Session B for 7-10th graders.  Players will split up by age and ability.  (*Players that played on the JV/Varsity 2017 high school teams cannot sign up due to MSHSL policies and off-season regulations).  In each session, players will receive individual lacrosse instruction to help each player take their game to the next level.  Players will learn passing and catching techniques, team attack and team defensive strategies that are required for playing with the high school program.  There will be 5v5 and 7v7 games.  We encourage everyone to give it a try and bring a positive attitude with them.  Each player will receive a t-shirt.  Participants will need their own equipment:  Stick, mouth guard and girls lacrosse goggles.
