Youth Lacrosse registration deadline is March 2
February 10, 2017
Local youth are invited to participate in the Bend Park and Recreation District’s Youth Lacrosse League. The deadline to register is Thursday, March 2. The league is open to boys and girls in first grade through eighth grade and runs from April 3 to June 2. Registration is available at www.bendparksandrec.org or at District facilities.
The league promotes physical fitness and teaches participants sportsmanship lessons about teamwork and fair play as well as basic lacrosse fundamentals and game play. Teams practice twice a week and play an eight-game schedule.
The registration fee is $78 for in-district residents and $94 for those that live outside the District boundaries. Financial assistance is available for registration and equipment needs.
Helmets (for boys), goggles (for girls), sticks, mouth guards and game jerseys are provided. Participants in the boys’ league need to provide their own gloves, shoulder pads and elbow pads.
The league also offers opportunities for adults as volunteer coaches. Coaches provide support with program logistics, coaching and mentoring youth. All volunteer coaches must complete an application, background check, take a concussion training course, enjoy working with youth and be able to create a positive, encouraging recreational environment for all players.
