3RD - 4TH GRADE
3RD - 4TH GRADE
NELC's goal for our 3rd and 4th grade players is to help each player reach their full lacrosse potential in a fun and exciting environment. The 3rd and 4th grade team will focus on basic skill development, building lacrosse IQ, teamwork and sportsmanship.
The NELC has a goal to provide every child the opportunity to play lacrosse. We rely on volunteer coaches to make that happen. If you are willing to help, please click below. We have a training program for new coaches, so no lacrosse experience is necessary.
