K-2 Learn to Play Program

Practices and home tournaments will be three times a week at Sand Creek Middle School. Most games are played on Saturdays at area schools in a jamboree format. Away games will be played throughout the Capital District.  These games are played on a shortened field in a 2-2-2-1 format (2 attack, 2 midfield, 2 defense and 1 goalie) and is refereed by high school players or parent volunteers.

The South Colonie Boys Youth Lacrosse program is very excited to start the new season. Lacrosse is often referred to as "The Fastest Game on Two Feet". With a high level of activity and exciting play, it is clear to see why it is gaining popularity around the country with today's youth. After having another very successful year, we are looking to continue to build upon that success. The skill growth for the program has been very noticeable. We credit this, in-part, to the kids practicing on their own and by boasting that our school coaches work directly with our youth program. We base our program on the 6 principles of safety, fun, positive energy, sportsmanship, participation, and skill development.

Two years ago we expanded our lacrosse teams to three levels (grades 1-2, 3-4, and 5-6). We participate in the ADK Youth Lacrosse League comprised of towns around the capital region. Practices are at Sand Creek Middle and typically 2-3 days a week (Tues, Wed, Thurs) with games on Saturday's starting in May. For grades 3-6 the season starts the first week of April and will be ending around June 15th.

****We also have a Learn to Play group for grades K-2nd grade. Learn to Play starts at the end of April 30th and ends around June 15th (full gear is needed for grades 1 & 2, stick, helmet and gloves are required for Kindergarten. We will have a very limited supply to lend players).****
