Welcome to Carroll Manor Girls Lacrosse Clinic!  We are excited to have your daughters playing in our program this spring.  Our clinic takes place on Saturday mornings at Jacksonville Elementary (outfield of baseball diamond) from 9am-10:15am.  The goal is to get 8 sessions in, beginning the first week of April weather permitting.

For the past few seasons CMRC has partnered with 3D Lacrosse, a nationwide instructional club program, to structure our lacrosse program and design our curriculum.  With 3Ds guidance, in conjunction with US Lacrosse’s Athlete Development Model, we have developed a clinic that is focused on high repitition, high touch, fundamental skills meant to build muscle memory and prepare our players for the next level.

We will be breaking our clinic up into smaller groups.  All groups practice as one unit following the same lesson plan.  The use of smaller groups allows us to assign parent coaches for better instruction and to have the girls compete at certain drills and games to strengthen and support learned skills.  These are not formalized teams, so don’t panic if your daughter isn’t matched up with her bestie! They will all be practicing together.

Parent participation is extremely important to the success of our clinic.  We need parents who are able to help with organizing their group and keeping the girls moving along the drills.  You don’t have to be a former college stand out to help. Just a parent willing to volunteer a little bit of time on a Saturday morning.  Please let me know if you are able to help. 

Your daughters will need a stick (can be cut down to your daughter’s arm length), mouthpiece, and goggles.  Cleats are preferred, but not mandatory.  CM Girls Lacrosse t-shirts/jerseys will be handed out at the first practice.  We will reach out with more information in March.  As a gauge, we typically shoot for 40 degree weather (or above) to get started.  Little girls don’t do well with lacrosse in cold weather!

Please let me know if you have any questions.  We look forward to seeing you soon.

Thanks,

Jason Sarratea
