Youth Lacrosse 2022

Program Description

Goffstown Parks and Recreation lacrosse is open to all boys and girls ages 7-14. Teams will be created based on players age and registration numbers, boys and girls will play separately. This is a competitive travel program that stresses skill development, sportsmanship, and fun. All abilities are invited to participate, there are no tryouts. Non-residents are able to participate, only in the event that the town/city in which they reside is not offering a lacrosse program.

The 8U instructional program consists of one practice per week. During these practices players will learn the basic rules and technique to lacrosse. There is the potential for the 8U programs to scrimmage against local 8u town programs as well. The older age divisions will play games on Sundays with practices throughout the week. Practice day and time will be determined by the coaches of each team. Youth lacrosse begins in April and will go until June. Home games at Sarette Field in Pinardville; away games will be at varying locations.

All participants must provide their own gear and protective equipment. For girls that consists of: a lacrosse stick, goggles, and mouth guard. For boys that consists of a lacrosse stick, helmet, shoulder pads, elbow pads, gloves and mouth guard. We have some donated equipment available for those who are interested.
