Mighty Mites

FAMILY. EDUCATION. LACROSSE.

Since 2004, The Denver Lacrosse Club, DLC,  has been introducing children to lacrosse in a fun and semi-competitive environment where girls and boys develop friendships, learn teamwork, and gain confidence.  We call this incredible program, Mighty Mites Lacrosse.

It’s really JUST FOR FUN!

S

mall kids will be drawn to lacrosse because it’s fun to play. If you (the parent or coach) can think like a kid, you’ll know that playing lacrosse is much more fun than being taught lacrosse.  So with our little ones, we put less emphasis on competition, and more emphasis on skill development and discovery.  The Mighty Mites program is designed for children ages 4-7.

Players will learn the basics of the game such as throwing, catching, cradling and shooting.  Children will also enhance motor skills development, practice physical fitness and gain self confidence.  Once a week, there is an hour-long session that includes a half-hour of “drills” and a half-hour scrimmage (2nd half of the program), run by our volunteer coaches. 

Our program is open to all children enrolled in Denver Colorado schools, with an interest in learning the fastest game on two feet. This program provides an introduction to lacrosse, as well as an opportunity for children and parents to meet other “lacrosse families” in their school district.

PARENTS!

Please note that this is not a drop-off program. Parents or other caregivers must remain at the field where their child is playing.
