Welcome to Eagles Lacrosse!
The Eagles Lacrosse organization was started 18 years ago by a group of parents as a non-profit developmental organization. Our mission is to provide the opportunity and structure for young athletes, boys and girls, to learn and play lacrosse in an environment that helps them develop their skills and foster a life long love of the game. Part of our mission also includes supporting the ESD school lacrosse program as opportunities arise such as offering scholarships to play with Eagles, providing equipment and supplies and participating in capital campaigns in conjunction with the ESD booster club.
The ESD Head coaches for the girls and boys programs (Pat Kennedy and Maggie Koch) are involved in the Eagles programming. While their participation is limited in order to comply with SPC rules, they will work closely with all of our Eagles coaches. Our Eagles coaches are mostly young professionals who played lacrosse in college. They are assisted by 4 senior student coaches.
This fall, practices will be focused on small sided games and drills including some use of our box field. The objective of our fall practices is to create a fun filled and relaxed environment. While practices will be limited to an hour each Sunday the pace will be fast and upbeat with all players getting lots of reps. It is our belief that small sided game play with selective oversight provided by the coaches is the best way to develop “lacrosse IQ” as players are forced to make quick decisions on their own in a competitive environment. Proper technique and base skills will also be emphasized especially for our younger players.
In addition to Sunday practice, our youth teams (3/4, 5/6 and 7/8) will participate in several tournaments this fall. Due to some material conflicts with the high school calendar, our high school boy’s team will not participate in a formal tournament. Our hope is that the Sunday small sided games will actually be a more enjoyable experience for our high school boys than weekly routine practices and one tournament where we often have far less than our full squad and have multiple games packed into one weekend. We may look into having our own inter squad small sided tournament for the high school boys to end the fall or potentially invite some other schools to play some small sided games against us.
If your child is a first time participant, the fall is a great time to learn! If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact any member of the Board.
We are eager to get the year started again and look forward to seeing everyone in a few weeks!
