Teachers - Overview
Canadians have been playing lacrosse for centuries. The action, agility, and teamwork in this sport helps young athletes develop the skills they need to be active for life.
Lacrosse is not difficult to learn and it teaches a number of fundamental skills your students can apply to any sport. The constant running and momentum of the game builds endurance and dexterity, while the throwing, catching, and passing develops valuable coordination skills.
Lacrosse FITS is designed not to build lacrosse players, but to build lacrosse athletes. The training program requires little preparation time for teachers and no prior experience in the sport. It is also very affordable. It can be played in a gym or on a soccer field using the floor hockey nets you already own and a rubber ball.
