Please read program details below and let the club know of any questions.

The Props Academy is a safe, fun-filled basic lacrosse skills development program for boys in 1st and 2nd grades from any Seattle neighborhood.

This is a non-contact environment designed to introduce the basics of the game and stick-handling in a no pressure, series of clinics over 6-8 weeks starting during April each year.

Kids will be grouped by grade, although more skilled players might be asked to play up. The focus is on skill development: ground balls, passing, throwing, cradling, and shooting followed by small sided games for the kids.

Props Lacrosse emphasizes the ELM (effort, learning and mistakes) of the Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA).  The participating coaches include HS aged alumni of the Props Lacrosse program along with some of the current coaches of our 3-8 grade teams. The kids are in good hands.

Cost – Free to participate, but Academy participants are required to be a member of US Lacrosse – which costs about $30 per player – please view all member benefits and join before starting registration for Academy.
