Boys Little & Big Spartans Training Program (Fall 2020)
This fall, Next Level Lacrosse is excited to run another season of Little and Big Spartans all while being COVID-19 safe. These Spartan Programs are divided into three divisions: Little Spartans (K-2nd Grade), Big Spartans Red (3rd-4th Grade), and Big Spartans Blue (5th-8th Grade). The scrimmages and practices are played on the beautiful Washington Episcopal Turf Field, conveniently located in the heart of Bethesda.
This program is designed more for rec or house players but all skill levels and positions are welcome. Players will be separated into teams primarily by school and personal requests.
To maximize learning and development there will be a 30-45 minute team skills practice before each 45-60 minute scrimmage. Our objective is to provide a safe and fun learning environment where coaches can introduce and develop the various team and individual skills of lacrosse: passing, catching, dodging, shooting, groundballs, team offense, and team defense. The teams will be coached by our very own travel team coaches, current or former college players, and knowledgeable and hard-working local high school players.
Each player will receive a reversible game jersey!
(1) No coaches or staff will be allowed onto the field if they have test positive or show symptoms for COVID-19
(2) Check-ins will include a forehead thermometer test. Players with a temperature of 100.4 or above will NOT be allowed to play that day.
(3) We will not allow more than 50 players on a field at any given time, and no more than 15 players per team/group.
(4) There will be no “heavy contact” allowed during these tryouts meaning we will avoid drills that require constant wrestling-type body on body moves. We will emphasize social distancing during water breaks and we will stagger water breaks by group.
(5) PPE masks will be used by the coaches if they are within 6 feet of a player
(6) We encourage our parents to stay in their cars during drop-off and pick-up. If a parent would like to watch, please wear a mask if you are walking to a more crowded, narrow area such as a sidewalk. All parents must follow social distancing and CDC safety recommendations.
(7) Socializing before or after the program is over is not allowed.
(8) If a player, parent, or family member comes in contact or tests positive for COVID-19, you must notify Next Level Directors immediately. If this happens to anyone present during one of our programs, we will message the group immediately. Such occurrences will result in 14 days of quarantine from Next Level Lacrosse and future programs will be temporarily canceled.
