Litchfield Lacrosse currently has coaching opportunities available
The LLA is looking to fill positions at various age groups. If you are willing to volunteer your time to help children learn and grow in the game of lacrosse and develop sportsmanship in a competitive environment, please click this link to the on-line coaching application: https://leagueathletics.com/Registration/Default.asp?n=&org=litchfieldlacrosse.org&cat=Coaches - details can be found in the application document, including contact information.
The league welcomes both coaches that are already certified and those who wish to become certified. For those not yet certified, as part of becoming a coach the NH Youth Lacrosse Association requires that all head and assistant coaches be US Lacrosse Level 1 Certified. To gain this certification, a coach is required by the LLA and NHYLA to take an online course, complete a background check and attend a full day “on-field class” run by US Lacrosse. You will be required to attend all such classes as well as any coaching instruction provided by the LLA. Specific costs related to coaching will be reimbursed after being assigned to a team. All teams must have at least two certified coaches.
Boys teams and girls teams for grades 5-8 for the 2017 season will have indoor practices at the Bedford SportsPlex one night a week (Thu) from 6-8 on the following dates: 3/2, 3/9, 3/16, 3/30, and 4/6 as well as be one Sunday indoor practice on 3/19 from 4-6. The small field girls teams (grades 1-4) will have skills sessions starting in February and running through March. Outdoor practices will begin in April and each team will practice 2-3 times a week through the second week in June. Games are on Sunday, though there may be an occasional game on Saturday (there will be Saturday games during Easter weekend) due to offsetting a bye week or for makeup purposes. There is an end of the season festival where a team may play on either Saturday 6/10 or Sunday 6/11 – the schedule is not determined until after the season ends.
