FLP’s Philosophy:

To provide the resources and environment to develop our boys and girls as both “good sports” and fundamentally sound lacrosse players. Specifically, our goals at each level are as follows:

 

Pockets 

  • Players learn the fundamentals of Lacrosse through non-competitive, instructional in-house play as games are not scored at this level..  Goalies are optional at this age.  Equipment needed includes a stick, goggles, cleats, and a mouth guard. There will be 1 or 2 practices during the week & 1 game on Saturday at a local field.

 

  • The season usually starts in January/February with some indoor practices and outdoor games start in April and go through early June.


Tykers

  • Players continue to earn the fundamentals of Lacrosse through games and practices, although games are not scored. There are goalies and refs at this age.  Equipment needed includes a stick, goggles, cleats, and a mouth guard. one or two practices are held during the week along with 1 game on Saturday at a local field.    

 

  • The season usually starts in January/February with some indoor practices and outdoor games start in April and go through early June.

 

  • This level plays on a reduced size field.


 

Lightning, Midget, Junior

 

  • Focus is to expand on the fundamentals and continue to grow their game as they get older.

 

  • All age groups play on a full sized field.  All have goalies and refs.

 

  • Teams participate in the Maryland Youth Lacrosse Association (MYLA) and travel throughout Carroll, Baltimore, Harford, and parts of Howard Counties for games.  

 

  • Maryland Youth Lacrosse Association (MYLA) – has requirements that teams must be ranked A/B or C. Depending on the number of teams entered in each age group, we must try to adhere to their placement guidelines or teams will not be eligible for Playoffs.  Ex. If we enter 3 teams at Lightning, 1 must be A, 1 B, 1C. Failing to do so makes all the Lightning Teams ineligible for Playoffs

 

  • It it up to the Girls Commissioner and coaches to determine proper placement of teams after evaluations.

 

  • The season usually starts in January/February with indoor practices.  Outdoor games start in April and go through end of May/Early June. Teams may also participate in year end tournaments based off the discretion of the AGC/Commissioner and Coach.

 

  • Other opportunities to play such as an indoor league, pre-season tournaments etc. will be at the discretion of the Girls Commissioner and coaches.
