Tyker Fall Practice Wrap Up
by posted 11/21/2019

The final practice of the Fall that was scheduled for this Sunday is canceled.

We had a great turnout this Fall. In my estimation, the boys all got better and had fun. The coaches are confident that we will be fielding at least one and possibly two club/travel teams for Tyker this Spring, in addition to the 2029 club team that has been practicing since this summer. All the boys are likely to enjoy the Spring season more now with their improved stick skills, and that is the most important thing to me.

I plan on sending an email after Thanksgiving that outlines our plans for winter activities and final try-outs for the Tyker club teams. I am always open to feedback and suggestion, so please don't hesitate to contact me. We are always looking for new volunteers to help coach and manage the teams, too.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Final Skills and Drills of the Summer Monday 7/29
by posted 07/28/2019

It looks like we don't have the numbers for free-play, and I think that would be a little much after Sunday's hot tryouts for most of the boys.

We will have our final skills and drills session of the summer on Monday, July 29th at Tucker field.

We are going to break Tyker and Lightning up again into separate sessions this week.

Tyker/2nd-3rd graders will start at 6:00.

Lightning/4th-5th graders will start at 7:15

Helmet, gloves, and stick are all that you need. Don't forget water either!

I'm going to have to cancel Wednesday's scheduled skills and drills because I will be away. My plan is to pick it back up in the fall after fall sports schedules are posted.

Welcome to the off-season pilot program
by posted 06/29/2019

The program is initially only open to the Tyker and Lightning age groups, including players in grades 2 through 5 for the 2019-2020 school year. 

Based on registration and expected attendance for a session, we may combine Tyker and Lightning into one group, or separate them with Tyker starting at 6:15 and Lightning starting at 7:30.

Please respond to the RSVP email for each session so the coaches can plan!

Skills and Drills (Wednesdays at 6:30 starting July 3rd) - Will provide an opportunity to focus on lacrosse stickwork and general physical literacy (applicable to all sports). Several stations will be set up around the field, with each station manned for the duration of the session by the same coaches. The sessions will be planned with common and complementary skills at the individual stations. The fundamentals of space, time and communication will be stressed as they are overarching and transferrable. Coaches will script the session with a focus on small groups within the station groups and maximizing the number of times players touch the ball. Players only need helmets, gloves, and their stick for the skills and drills session.

Supervised Free-Play (Mondays at 6:30 starting July 8th) - Will provide an opportunity for the boys to play "pick-up" lacrosse. Under the supervision of Bel Air Rec coaches, the boys will be given an opportunity to become increasingly more self-directed and autonomous with the free play session. Games my range from full-field 10 vs 10 to mini-games with mini-goals. Full equipment is required for these sessions.

This program is free and open to all registered Bel Air Rec Lacrosse players. Everyone is encouraged to attend with the caveat that this program is supplemental, not required to play on any specific team in the 2020 season, and should never interfere with in-season sports.
