ROLES TEAM


WHAT IS IT? Boys’ lacrosse is a team sport. There are up to nine field


players and a goalie. Because lacrosse is a fast-paced game, substitutions are frequent to allow players to rest and


share playing time. FUNDAMENTALS


POSITIVITY Good teammates, coaches and parents support each other with positive comments.


FUN Organized sports are designed to keep kids active, safe, fun, and to teach valuable life lessons and skills.


DEVELOPMENTAL


U9 AND BELOW - Coaches may agree to 7v7 play with 2 attack, 2 defense, 2 midfielders and a goalie


Boys develop coordination at different rates. Some players will pick up new skills more quickly.


All players on all teams should play with their appropriate age group. If multiple teams exist within a program, teams should consider physical size, skill, and maturity when dividing players.


ACCOUNTABLE All players, coaches and parents are responsible for maintaining game integrity.


COOPERATION One of the best parts of being on a team is working together to achieve shared goals.
