We've been waiting for our youngest grand to have activities which require attentive fans in the wings - especially a Gramma with a very large camera. This spring I noticed the Y was offering a lacrosse camp for five year olds - what luck! Outside of t-ball and soccer there isn't much for a five year old to learn around here.
So for Mr. T's birthday we gave him a camp. It was his to pick but we'd hoped the lacrosse would spark his interest. It was! His Tio provided a very cool lacrosse stick. His Mom found cleats on sale. His Dad and Tio tag teamed him to fit his new blue mouthguard.
|Ready for lacrosse camp. All geared up!|
|Warming up is an important part of every sport.|
|Catching the ball.|
|Tate and Tio (who came to watch & ensure it was legit!)|
The second day the coaches taught the 5-7 year olds some drills to expand on their newly learned skills.
|Cradling the ball.|
Day three was an actual scrimmage after a refresher of the skills. Mr T's seen the game. He knew how to hit the opponents stick to make them drop the ball. The first time he did this it was against the only girl camper and she cried to the coaches "he hit me...!"
