Pop Lacrosse Clinics

What is Pop Lacrosse?

Coach Adam learned Pop lacrosse when we worked for a year with England Lacrosse in Manchester.  He taught boys and girls the basics of lacrosse - shopping, cradling, catching, throwing - all in a fun, competitive environment.  This year, we are bringing Pop Lacrosse to Orange County!

Pop Lacrosse is intended for all new players - boys & girls - in grades K-5.  Pop is non-contact, fast paced and helps players learn the fundamentals of lacrosse.
