MINIS for Pre-School & Kindergarten
Cocheco MINIs is our developmental program for preschool and kindergarten boys and girls, as well as first-graders who aren't quite ready for team play.  It was universally felt that while our youngest players really enjoyed practices, games were a little much for them and did very little to improve their skills. 

-Saturday morning skills sessions run an hour and introduce the skills and concepts needed for team play.  The field is behind the Strafford County Courthouse.

-MINIs is co-ed and requires only a mouthguard and sneakers, even for the boys. 

-Stick, foam ball, and a t-shirt are provided.

$60 gets you in the mix:  $25 to Cocheco Lacrosse and $35 for a membership with USLax. 

-Register by April 1.  Sessions run April 17 through June 12.


Have questions:  scroll through the FAQ section. 

Still have questions:  call Adam Hughes (boys) at 603-781-9392   or   Lisa Stacy (girls) at 603-767-3290

Please, make the effort to volunteer at least one hour between now and the end of the season.  There are LOTS of little tasks.  Many hands make light work!



Practices OUTSIDE ... brrr!  For all practices, players need to be on the field BY the start time.   All gear on, including some layers, and ready for warmups.   As our New England spring weather rages on, please be sure to check your email for any schedule changes. GAMES:   Remember this is youth sports.   It's about having fun, being a good teammate, and improving lax skills.  At all times, be respectful to each other, to officials, and to opposing teams.  Whether you're the home team or visitor, whether leaving the team bench or the fan area, clean up your stuff. GO, COCHECO!

Hard work beats talent when talent fails to work hard.

PLAYER AWARDS:  Cocheco is a development program; as such, we are not all that concerned with our teams' records.  Rather, our emphasis is on ensuring players improve in measurable ways each and every season.  As players and as people.  MVP designations are traditionally bestowed according to data.  Cocheco gives recognition for contributions that can't be so concretely measured.  Our Nesman and Hitchcock awards recognize the player who works hardest at improving as a player, while Heyliger winners are recognized for being the quintessential teammate. As these character traits and habits are built over time, these acknowledgments start for players in 5th grade.  The awards are given in honor of 3 men who worked so diligently to establish the Cocheco Lacrosse program:  Don Heyliger, Greg Nesmann and Larry Hitchcock.   Coaches will discuss these concepts with their teams.  Feel free to start a conversation at home. The Dover Recreation Department holds an annual Heyliger Awards dinner.  As the season goes on, please watch out for those who go above and beyond in helping make Cocheco such a terrific program for your kids and pass your suggestions along to any of our board members. A list of past winners can be found on the award tabs.  If we're missing someone, please send an email to lmnn@stacy.net 

Registration or uniform refunds are handled on a case-by-case basis.  USLax membership is non-refundable.  Some financial assistance is available. Please contact our treasurer, Kris Cook @ kkcook@comcast.net.
