• Player assessments, coaches clinic set for Feb. 1
By Lisa Bonebrake
The La Jolla Lacrosse Club is expanding quickly, and it’s not just for boys or experienced players. The club has options for boys and girls in grades K-8, as well clinics and teams for both new and competitive players.
On local fields this spring you’ll see elementary school girls with their protective eyewear carrying their lacrosse sticks, and middle school boys sporting their “shooter shirts” to school and wearing their protective pads and helmets on the field.
New players are welcome and will be assigned to teams according to their skill and grade level this spring. Following the Feb. 1
assessments at Torrey Pines Elementary School (see schedule below) the coaches will provide two free clinics for first-time players. The clinics will help new players learn the basics of the game in smaller group settings. Based on assessments, more experienced players will be assigned to appropriate competitive teams.
Assessments for spring lacrosse are required for boys only, but registration for participation is required for both boys and girls.
