The Bedford Cannons Little Laxers program is a wonderful way to introduce your little ones to the great game of lacrosse. Designed for boys and girls in K or Pre-K, Little Laxers meets once per week on Saturday mornings at the Joppa Hill Fields, and features a number of fun lacrosse-themed games designed to teach the kids lacrosse fundamentals while keeping them moving and having fun.
Skills learned include scooping, passing, shooting, cradling, and receiving a pass. These skills are hidden inside fun games - the kids don't even know they're learning! Little Laxers uses a light-weight lacrosse training ball, making it easier for the little ones to pass and shoot.
Players should have their own stick, but protective equipment and cleats are not required. Little Laxers is our program for Kindergarten and Pre-K athletes, and sessions begin in mid-April once the fields open. There are no winter indoor sessions for Little Laxers, and there are no mid-week practices.
Little Laxers runs from 9-10am on Saturday mornings at either the Joppa Hill fields or Sportsman Field (near the town pool). The program starts in April, once the town opens the fields, and concludes in early June. You will be emailed specific dates in the spring.
