SPRING 2023 BOYS LACROSSE

Lacrosse in South County continues to grow and develop young players.

  • SCYA is committed to promoting the ideals of sportsmanship.
  • Respect the Game
  • Respect the Officials
  • Respect your Opponent
  • Respect Yourselves

South County is home to several coaches with years of playing and coaching experience and are ready to teach the sport they all love.

Clinic Level

  • Typically Pre K - 2nd Graders (Will be split between younger/older)
  • The goal is to introduce and develop the fundamentals of the game in a fun environment and build continuity into the program at an early age. The Scoopers program will begin with skills training in the early sessions and will evolve into a 6 v 6 format. Every player will rotate throughout the field of play in order to gain exposure at each position. Boys ages 4-7 years old will be participating in a Scoopers league. Equipment for this age group can be borrowed from SCYA.
  • The emphasis is high on instruction and less on competition. Rules are slightly modified to eliminate heavy contact. Games are played in various locations throughout Anne Arundel County primarily on Saturday and some games during the week.

Pee Wee

  • Typically 3rd and 4th graders
  • The emphasis at the "Pee Wee" level is still instructional, with a small shift to competition.  Games are played with nearly all the normal rules with the exception of modified extra man and man down situations. Games are played throughout the county primarily on weekends and some games during the week, and are refereed by county officials. Coaches are NOT allowed on the field. If your child needs lacrosse equipment (helmet, stick, mouthguard, chest pads, elbow pads, cleats and gloves) it is necessary for you to purchase it for this age group.  There is a possibility for evaluations to separate teams at this level dependent on the amount of registrations.

Middie

  • Typically 5th and 6th graders
  • Basic skills are still taught to all players and many beginners start playing lacrosse at this level.  All aspects of the game are played at this level. Games are played throughout Anne Arundel County primarily on weekends with some weeknight games. The season ends with County and State Championship games for the top teams.  All registered players will be placed on a team.  If your child needs lacrosse equipment it is necessary for you to purchase it for this age group.  There is a possibility for evaluations to separate teams at this level dependent on the amount of registrations.

Juniors

  • Typically 7th and 8th graders
  • The program is open to players of all levels of ability, including beginners.  All aspects of the game are played at this level.
