MANHATTAN MANATEES FALL SCHEDULE 2019

11 Saturday's at Trinity School Sept 7-Nov 16th 

Co-ed Ages 3-6

Practice Time:  3:30-4:30

The foundation of the pee wee program is to develop our young athletes in a "fun" and "active" environment. This co-ed, non-contact program will introduce the basic lacrosse skills. Our goal is to teach hand-eye coordination while learning the fundamentals of lacrosse - catching, throwing, ground balls and communicating with one another. The program gives the youngest players the opportunity to develop basic movement skills like running, jumping, landing, scooping, throwing and catching in a fun setting, built around informal play and positive reinforcement. These skills will lead them to the next level of team play.
