Marywood Head lacrosse coach Scott Dalgliesh will conduct his second Valley Laxerz lacrosse clinic at the Greater Pittston YMCA today, January 20 with registration beginning at 9:30 a.m. and the clinic running from 10 a.m. – 11:30.
The first clinic in December attracted over 20 players.
The clinic is a non-competitive, skills and drills sessions to get kids introduced to the sport. Included will be passing, cradling, catching and shooting drills geared towards not only those who have played before, but towards those new to the sport.
Cost for the clinic is $20/child with a family discount of $5 for each additional child. A $10 discount will be given to those who attended the first clinic in December.
Players will need a stick (extra sticks will be available on a limited basis. To reserve one, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org), mouthguard, sneakers or court shoes. Equipment can be purchased either at a local sporting goods store (Dick's, Play It Again, Susquehanna Valley Sports).
The Valley Laxerz will begin their inaugural season March through, playing in the NEPA Youth Lacrosse league against teams from Scranton, Back Mountain, Mountain Top, and Delaware Valley. In addition, they will participate in two tournaments during the year; one in Back Mountain and another one at the end of the year. Although the lacrosse season coincides with baseball and track, kids will be able to participate in both.
