Are you new to the game of lacrosse?
Not sure if it's right for you but want to give it a try?
Looking to learn lacrosse basic skills and game concepts?
If you answered YES to any of these questions then sign up for the Hillsborough Lacrosse Winter Clinic.
Join us Tuesday nights in the Woods Road School Cafeteria for a 4-week lacrosse boot camp. The Winter Clinic will be held 1/27, 2/3, 2/10 & 2/17. 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade will meet from 6:30-7:30 while 4th and 5th grade will meet from 7:30-8:30.
This clinic is designed for NEW youth players in grades 1 through 5. You'll learn lacrosse basic skills, run through drills for practice and play games to put your newly learned skills to the test. It's a great way for new players to get themselves prepared for the spring season.
If you have a lacrosse stick bring it. If you don't have a stick we'll have sticks to borrow for the evening. If you don't have a stick and want to buy one, cruise on over Universal Lacrosse in Raritan, the exclusive lacrosse retail sponsor of Hillsborough Lacrosse.
For new players, the Winter Clinic is free but a $25 US Lacrosse annual membership is required. All of our programs require USL membership so you won't be charged this again if you subsequently decide to register for the Spring program. SPACE IS LIMITED so register online now!
This Spring 2015 season HYL will be fielding two teams, A and B, at the both the 7th and 8th grade level. With this change, there are some important distinctions in how the teams will be structured, coached and managed. The A/B teams are primarily a game day structure, as the teams will always practice together. The teams will split during a portion of practice and concentrate on the specific needs of the A/B teams. All players will be evaluated and assigned to either the A team, the B team, or the A/B group. For example, if there are 36 players, 12 to 13 will be on the A team, 12 to 13 will be on the B team, and 10 to 12 will be in the A/B group, all depending on positional needs to fill the teams.
An important point to note is the A/B group will attend half of the A team games and half of the B team games. This fluid A/B group will give more players the opportunity to gain experience playing at the more competitive A-team level while gaining confidence and experience at a more equivalent skill level. There is also flexibility for players to shift based on coaches evaluation of their development as the season progresses. The Board and Coaches designed this hybrid structure to provide the best balance of player development and competitive desire.
In addition, the game schedules will be constructed to more closely match the relative skill level of the teams played. It is important to understand that the skill of an HYL A/B team may not always match another program’s A/B team. Regardless, more closely matching team experience levels will result in more competitive games, better player experiences and maximized playing time.
The philosophy of HYL is to teach lacrosse skills and game strategies for all players, regardless of experience, in a fun and competitive environment. All players will be coached equivalently with an improved focus on their developmental needs. Our new A/B team structure is intended to be consistent with our program philosophy while recognizing we need to adapt to changes occurring in the sport as well as in surrounding towns.
