Registration is now open for the new season of Cocheco MINIs.
Cocheco MINIs is our Developmental Program for boys and girls in kindergarten and pre-school, as well as for 1st graders who aren't ready yet for team play. It was universally felt that while our youngest players really enjoy practices and drills, actual games were a little much for them. Thus, the MINIs play separately from our full teams, every Saturday morning for one hour, for six weeks. All sessions are at the fields at the Strafford County Complex. The last day, we put them in a game format to let them employ the tools they've learned.
$60 gets you in the mix: $30 to Cocheco Lacrosse and $30 for a membership with USLax. This cost includes a MINIs stick and ball. If your player has been involved in skill sessions this winter that required a membership in USLax, you should be all set. If not, you will be prompted to register or renew. Players must be registered NO LATER THAN April 26. Each player needs a mouth guard and sneakers with good tread. Cleats are entirely optional. Players should dress in layers as it is often cool - always windy - out on this field.
FYI: Once players age out of the MINIs program, they will move up to the team format. These teams are in the Seacoast Area Youth Lacrosse League (SAYLL). 1st-4th-graders play in a 7v7 format on a half field, with two practices a week and games on Saturdays. Opposing teams are from the NH and Maine seacoast area. We encourage players and their families to watch SAYLL games. This helps practice drills make more sense - and is a cheap and fun outing.

We pride ourselves on making players at every level of the game feel welcome and ensuring they are better players by the end of the season. Here's to seeing our youngest players start a long and exciting involvement with Cocheco Lacrosse!
