BeneFITS of the Program
The Lacrosse FITS program is a fun and active sport training and development program built for community volunteers and coaches with little or no lacrosse experience. Each detailed lesson module provides an assortment of exciting and engaging activities for players, regardless of skill level.
This program has been designed so that the training modules allow players to progress from one lesson to the next, working from individual skills up to basic team ideas that are general to field and box lacrosse. Beyond lacrosse, the modules also focus on skills such as running, jumping, throwing, and catching, which are fundamental to any sport.
The lessons are designed so that the physical literacy is age appropriate for athletes 6 to 12 years of age, yet can be used at any age. In other words, if you introduced Lacrosse FITS to a team with no lacrosse experience, you would still begin with Lacrosse FITS 1 as the starting point regardless of the players’ age.
We truly value the input of parents, players, lacrosse associations, coaches, and volunteers across Canada. Should you have any suggestions or questions about the Lacrosse FITS program, please visit our FAQ page or click here to contact us.
