Girls Lightning Lacrosse
The Tolland Lightning Lacrosse Program is designed to introduce newer players to the sport of lacrosse in a fun environment that focuses on the development of fundamental lacrosse skills and teamwork. The Lightning team will meet twice a week; one weeknight for practice and one weekend day for either a game or practice. We use age appropriate drills and games in an effort to teach players how to scoop through and pick up ground balls, pass, catch and shoot. As our players develop their skills, we scrimmage within our team and play friendly games with other Lightning Programs. The team typically plays 6 to 8 games over the course of the season, depending on the number of other Girls Lightning programs.
Girls Bantam, Juniors & Seniors Lacrosse
Practices & Games: In the Spring season, Bantam, Junior and Senior teams typically practice 2 times per week, with one or two games per week. Girls Bantam, Junior and Senior teams are considered travel teams, with Bantam traveling somewhat less through Senior traveling somewhat more.
Tournaments and Jamborees: Depending on availability, our Girls Bantam, Junior and Seniors teams typically participate in one or two tournaments or jamborees each season. Some seasons teams are able to participate in multiple tournaments and jamborees.
Championship: Our Girls Senior team will participate in an end of season CVGYL championship when available.
Team Size: Teams may be limited in size so that everyone gets sufficient playing time and coaches can successfully manage practices. Additional teams at each level may be added if there are sufficient registrations and volunteers to coach.
Our teams practice and play home games on fields located in Tolland, CT. These fields are located at the Tolland public schools and the Tolland Recreation Center.
Our club fields players from Tolland, CT as well as from local area towns that do not have a youth lacrosse program.
