Kent Place School
42 Norwood Ave, Summit, NJ
DATES AND TIME
SUNDAYS, 12:30–1:30 PM
- September 11, 18, 25
- October 2
This clinic is designed for boys who are ready to learn lacrosse, or take their skills to the next level in the off-season. No prior experience is necessary. We reinforce the basic skills of catching, throwing, cradling, ground ball pick-ups, dodging, shooting, and defensive stick work, while staying true to the Swax Lax Lacrosse spirit of building confidence and having fun! Participants are grouped by grade level, and where appropriate, by ability level.
- Clinics will take place on a turf field so sneakers or cleats are required.
- The clinics are played entirely outdoors, but bathrooms are available.
COST (FEE INCLUDES A SWAX LAX BALL)
4-week session: $180
K–2nd grade: required equipment includes: boys lacrosse stick, water bottle, and sneakers.
3rd grade: Required equipment includes: boys lacrosse stick, sneakers, mouthpiece, and water bottle; optional equipment includes: helmet, gloves, arm pads, and shoulder pads; cleats are optional but play is on a turf field.
Note: We specifically design our drills and games so they do not include contact.
Swax Lax Lacrosse will refund registration fees, less a $25 admin charge, for cancellations communicated to us in writing at least two weeks prior to the program start date. No refunds will be issued within two weeks of the program start date.
In the event that Swax Lax Lacrosse needs to cancel a session due to an unforeseen conflict or if our clinic location is closed as mandated by the CDC, local health, school, or other government agencies, participants will receive a prorated refund of the clinic fee.
If we have to cancel a session for a weather-related reason, we will issue a credit for a future clinic or camp session. However, fees cannot be prorated in the event a player cannot attend all four sessions.
REGISTRATION FOR FALL LACROSSE CLINICS
A TYPICAL DAY: WHAT TO EXPECT AT OUR FALL CLINICS
At Swax Lax Lacrosse clinics, we typically address two important lacrosse skills at each session. Players will learn the proper technique for the basic skills, including: ground ball pick-ups, throwing, catching, dodging, defensive footwork, and shooting.
We believe that regardless of whether our players are learning the skills for the first time or ready to take their game to the next level, the only way to improve is to have a ton of fun and get lots of repetition. After the players have an opportunity to work on technique with the coaches in a small group setting, then it’s time to play games and small-sided scrimmages to show off their stuff!
Here is a sampling:
- Clean Your Room for ground balls
- Lacrosse Skeet for shooting
- Sharks and Minnows for dodging
- 1v1s; 2v2s; 3v3s to simulate game situations
We usually end the clinic with a relay race that incorporates the skills of the day. Finally, coaches award the coveted Player of the Day stickers to players who demonstrate special effort or who master a specific skill.
Bottom line: a typical day at a Swax Lax Lacrosse clinic is just plain fun.
