March: Season Update

Like so many schools, sports programs, and community organizations across the world, Bethel Park Youth Lacrosse is in an uncertain holding pattern during this health crisis. While BPSD has now confirmed that students will not physically attend school until at least mid-April, we still are waiting to see what this means for our lacrosse season. We ask for your patience during this time, as it will be weeks until we have a clearer picture of the path forward.

Options could range from a delayed full season to a shortened season to no season at all.  It is important to note that 90 customized uniforms were ordered on February 23rd and were delivered on March 13th. No matter the decision or outcome, your child will receive their uniform to keep.

In the meantime, I am sending a few helpful tools to keep your kids active with lacrosse:

First - how do you practice lacrosse without a partner? Two words: Wall Ball.

FOR MORE ADVANCED PLAYERS:
Kevin Crowley Demonstrates His Wall Ball Routine
2X All American and Pro LAX player Kevin Crowley shares his 8 drill wall ball routine that has made him one of the best stick handlers in the game.

Note: While the execution of this routine is quite advanced, you can pick up the basics of wall ball and alter the drills to fit your own skill level. The point is: get that stick out and practice!

Third - how you, as a parent, can help...

US Lacrosse announced the release of five new online courses devoted to helping coaches and parents better understand coaching kids.

The main How to Coach Kids course is a free, 20-minute program specifically designed to help understand how to coach kids ages 12 and under. In addition to the full How to Coach Kids course, they have specific micro-modules focused on three specific areas of child development (ages 2-6, 7-11, 12-14).
