Geronimo Spring 2022 

About Blazing Stars

The Blazing Stars program is structured to introduce and enhance basic lacrosse skills and full field game concepts to 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grade girls.

Blazing Stars is divided into two divisions: 3rd and 4th grade girls play in Division 3, and 5th and 6th grade girls play in Division 1

D1 will play mostly full field games

D3 will play mostly 7v7 games on a short field to increase touches and skill development

Players will be divided into evenly matched teams for individual team practice and play within their respective divisions.

In order to enhance player development and provide the best educational experience possible, we are adjusting our schedules for the coming spring.  As we have in the past we will divide all of the players into even teams and have practices and games within that format.

To allow us to better develop each player we will also designate some Thursday night sessions to split the girls by their experience level and work with them on different aspects of the game based on their current level. This will allow us to develop each player's confidence, technique and tactical awareness at an appropriate and accessible pace. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about this plan.

 

Sessions are on Thursday nights from 6:30-7:45 and Saturday mornings from 10:30 - 12:00pm.   One exception will be on VGF weekend.

The first few sessions will focus mostly on practice and skill development. The remaining Thursday and Sunday sessions will focus mostly on inter-league games.

Players who miss a session, without valid reason and proper communication with the coaching staff, may see their playing time in the following games reduced.
