Girls Little & Big Spartans Training Program (Fall 2021)


Overview

This fall, Next Level Lacrosse is excited to run another season of Girls Little and Big Spartans! 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!

Safety Measures

We will follow all Maryland Department of Health rules and regulations.  Here is the link to MARYLAND DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH YOUTH CAMP GUIDANCE & FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS, which we have been following at our youth camps this summer.  As of now, the likely safety measure for our Little & Big Spartans Program include:

1. As of July 1st, the Maryland Health Department does NOT require youth campers to wear a face covering.  For that reason, none of our players are required to wear a facemask during our outdoor programs.  If your son or daughter is more comfortable wearing a facemask at any time for any reason, he or she is very welcome to do so.

2. All staff members have either been vaccinated or have been screened for COVID-19 and any staff who tests positive or shows symptoms will not be allowed to attend.

3. All players will be placed in groups of 20 players or less. Each group will have their own separate corner of the field as their “home turf” for practices. During game play, we will allow different teams to play each other.

4. If a player, parent, or staff member comes into contact or tests positive for COVID-19, you MUST notify camp directors immediately. If this happens to anyone present during Little & Big Spartans, we will email all participants immediately and that person will need to quarantine following CDC guidelines. Next Level Directors will consult with local health departments, and camp could be cancelled for a period of time based on the expert’s recommendations.
