Girls Little & Big Spartans Rec League (Fall 2023)
At Little & Big Spartans, we are reimagining recreational lacrosse. Over are the days of smelly-old pennies, itchy grass fields, and a sub-par lacrosse experience. In are the days of meticulously designed jerseys, beautiful turf fields, and most importantly, an immersive lacrosse experience that engages players and parents on and off the field.
Built on our four pillars of success, Competition, Communication, Compassion, and Community, Little & Big Spartans emphasizes a holistic approach to recreational sports- focusing on player and character development in a fun environment for the players and an easy and accessible experience for the parents.
Our unique 8v8 half-field format emphasizes player development and fun. Throughout the seven weeks, players will practice with their teammates and coaches, play in games, compete for a championship, gain exposure to great lacrosse players, and have excessive amounts of fun. Parents will be assisted by ease of communication through the TeamSnap app, pre-determined field locations, and unfettered access to drinks and snacks!
Dates: September 10, 17, 24 | October 1, 8, 15 (22 – makeup if needed)
Location: Washington Episcopal School
(5600 Little Falls Pkwy, Bethesda, MD 20816)
Our philosophy is rooted in our four pillars of success- Competition, Communication, Compassion, and Community. Everything that we do as coaches and staff are guided by these principles so that we can bring you and your player an unrivaled lacrosse and recreational experience.
While this is a recreational league devoid of the stresses of club sports, we still want our players to compete! The stakes may be different, but the goal is the same- to be the best player, teammate, and friend possible. All players will be expected to come ready to engage, improve, and immerse themselves in the experience.
We appreciate that it can be a challenge to commit your child to a league. To help lighten this burden, communication is a hallmark of Little Big Spartans. With TeamSnaps immersive experience, parents will be have a platform to coordinate carpool, receive weekly check-ins from coaches, view schedules and results, and have constant communication with the league officials. Using these capabilities, will help facilitate a great experience for everyone. Yes, parents too!
A recreational league is meant to be a safe and fun place for players to experience the sport. With this in mind, we champion compassion as one of our pillars of success. We expect all coaches, players, and parents to treat one another accordingly. Although we may wear different jerseys on game day, we are all a members of the same team at Little Big Spartans. This brings us to our final -and most important- pillar, community.
At Little Big Spartans, we want to cultivate community among staff, players, and families. Recreational sports are not merely an opportunity for activity on the field- it is a chance to build lasting friendships. People will come for lacrosse but stay for the community.
