Fall Ball 2018 (NoCo 7v7 League) - EXPERIENCED players
posted 07/24/2018


 
Fall Ball 2018 (NoCo 7v7 League)
 
Fall Ball is a northern Colorado (NoCo) 7v7 league with a 6-game season for players from Fort Collins, Loveland, and Windsor. Multiple, distinct teams from each city will be formed for most age groups.
 
All practices (Thursdays) and games (Sundays) are in Fort Collins. Practices are optional for those with other mid-week commitments. A reduced registration fee is available for those who will be playing in games only (no practices).
 
This league is for experienced players (suggested for those who have played at least 1 year and/or have proficient passing/catching skills). Less-experienced players should consider our "Fall Instructional" program.
 
We'll be using a combination of box and field concepts, modified rules, and small-sided play to ensure a fast-paced, run-and-gun style of lacrosse that players will love playing (lots of touches!). Likewise, practices will be up-tempo and heavy on high-repetition stick work, shooting, dodging, and transition play.
 
NEW THIS YEAR - HS players as goalies!  For an extra level of fun and excitement, teams will have the option of using a high school player as their goalie on most game days (youth players love shooting on HS players!). High school players/goalies will be provided by the league.
 
This is a great opportunity for kids to have fun and improve their stick skills and lacrosse IQ while not interfering with other Fall sports. Come join us and have a great time playing lacrosse this Fall!
