Little Scoops Lacrosse Mission: Engage, Explain, Excite
"Since MYL does not have a program for the children 3-5, Little Scoops Lacrosse is a great way to get involved early. They are looking to run a program at Red Bush this October adjacent to the MYL Fall Lacrosse Program. So please call Kevin Fallon to inquire about this new exciting opportunity".
Little Scoops Lacrosse is a fun, high-energy, non-competitive program designed to introduce the game of lacrosse to boys and girls ages 3 to 5-years-old. The program was created by Kevin Fallon of Milford, CT to present the fundamentals of this historic and fast-growing game, including the rules, skills, and movement patterns, in a child-centric atmosphere. The Little Scoops curriculum teaches introductory lacrosse skills such as catching and shooting, cradling, and scooping up ground balls. As the young athletes progress through the age and skill levels of the program, lessons are focused on developing individual skills as well as learning to work together in pairs and teams.
Our sessions are taught by experienced coaches who are trained in teaching and engaging young children in creative, fun and instructional activities. As the safety and comfort of our young athletes, and their parents, is of the utmost importance, age-appropriate equipment such as vinyl lacrosse balls and smaller sticks are used in all sessions. Little Scoops is expanding on the legacy of its sister program, Soccer Tikes, in helping the children of Milford gain the confidence and skills needed to participate in the fastest game on two feet.
