Spring 2024 Hatchlings K-1st
Hatchlings is our beginner girls lacrosse program. It is 4v4 on a small field with no goalies. This program is fantastic and has helped to grow our Raptors girls' lacrosse program. The coaches can be on the field with their team and the referee. Hatchlings allow the girls to learn the lines, whistles, and how to use their sticks. It has made the transition to half-field lacrosse much better for our Raptors players. Last year, as a board member of the AYL, I got the 4v4 as sanctioned AYL division in Girls Lacrosse.
*We only require that your daughter buys a jersey for Hatchlings, but most do buy the shorts and/or kilt.
**We do not allow playdowns in the AYL, but if your daughter is in second grade and you would like to try Hatchlings instead of the 8v8 half-field, please reach out to me so we can discuss options.
