The Illinois Girls Lacrosse Association (IGLA) is adopting the US Lacrosse “PLAYERS FIRST” ATHLETE DEVELOPMENT MODEL: THE RIGHT LACROSSE AT THE RIGHT TIME. Providing every athlete the opportunity to enter, enjoy and excel by learning and playing lacrosse in a way that’s best for each stage of growth and development. This creates a model of participation that provides opportunity for all, for life. Rationale for small-sided competition: smaller players, smaller fields. That’s the name of the game to keep kids engaged, developing their skills and getting more touches on the ball. Children will have better skill development, more enjoyment and increased retention rates by letting them play the right way.
IGLA offers a Fundamental Clinic for girls in grades K-1 and two levels of league play for girls in grades 2-9 – both are recreational, community lacrosse. For more information, visit www.iglax.org.
