Here’s what your daughter can expect at one of our fall or winter girls lacrosse clinics.
Younger Girls (K–2nd Graders)
Warm-up: Horse and Jockey
To warm up our players for the clinic, we play camp-favorite games such as horse and jockey.
Station 1: Clean Your Room Game
Focuses on Long Throws. We practice long throws by playing a game called Clean Your Room. The team with the least amount of balls on their side of the room wins.
Station 2: Musical Ground Balls
Teaches the perfect the ground ball. By learning to scoop properly, the girls can get an edge on the other players.
Station 3: Cascade Relay
Girls work on flip passing by participating in a relay race. Flip passes are a great way to lose a defender on the go.
Station 4: Catching and Throwing Contest
To play the catching and throwing contest, whichever team consecutively makes the most catches and throws wins. This is a great game to play at home too.
The end of the clinic always means Player-of-the-Day stickers. Girls who gave it their all each week earn a coveted Sum It Up sticker decorated by our multi-talented coaches.
Lily Pad Game
While we wait for our girls to get picked up, the whole clinic plays a big group game. The game reinforces skills from the day and allows the girls all play together.
Older Girls (3rd–8th Graders)
Warm-Up: Tossing/Horse and Jockey
Sum It Up Clinics are just as fun as our camps. We start off each clinic with a favorite camp warm-up such as huggie-bear or horse and jockey.
Just like the teams our girls play on in the spring, we host a dynamic warmup for the girls before lacrosse starts. This type of warm-up helps girls prevent injuries during any sports they might play.
The girls will practice and learn important game scenarios at the winter clinics. Learning how to properly navigate the crease and pull-off a double team will be essential for springtime play. The girls leave our clinics having learned about clearing, cutting, and dodging.
Girls who give it their all during the clinics receive a Player-of-the-Day sticker—just like at camp. The sticker lets the girls know that hard work does pay off, and we notice their skills improving.
Each week at the clinic, we’ll host a different challenge to end the night. The stick tee-pee challenge encourages girls to work together as a team and use their sticks.
At the end of the clinic session we like to host a raffle to say thank you to the participants. The girls can win coveted Sum It Up merchandise or lacrosse gear donated to us from some of the local sports shops.
