FITS for Lacrosse Associations
Lacrosse FITS was conceptualized by Dave Little and Kylo Harris of Manitoba. In an effort to promote the sport, they had been running individual community sessions and workshops in schools across the province. They found that while teachers and volunteers were excited about the sport, they did not have enough knowledge of lacrosse to continue the program.
With this in mind, they spent a considerable amount of time working to create a new lacrosse training strategy that would overcome such shortfalls. The goal was to design a lacrosse program that an individual with limited lacrosse knowledge could run using clearly defined lesson plans. Essentially, the idea was if you could read and look at diagrams, then you could run the program.
Lacrosse FITS is structured in six modules to allow young Canadians to develop the basic skills common to both box and field lacrosse and gradually bring them together to develop into well-rounded lacrosse athletes.
Overall, it is the intention of the Canadian Lacrosse Association to provide lacrosse associations nationwide with a training program designed to easily teach the sport. In doing so, it is hoped that the Lacrosse FITS program will help promote lacrosse in schools and community associations across Canada.
