    When you have a chance, ask them what their current stick setup is? I'm doing warm ups with a few teams (dudes and chicks) and I'm trying to find something that "works."

    and yeah, I have no idea on how this happened. They needed someone and I guess I missed the step back.

    Brit, nah, nothing to be sorry about. :)

    I went with a pretty basic set up. Eclipse 2 with soft Grizzly mesh with a deep pocket. I'll throw it on CF mens attack shaft or a womens dragonfly I have around. I don't want the full goalie length shaft and don't feel like cutting one down to 36" or 34".

    I got a good stringer who is doing the stringing and shooter set up.

    Nice, PM me the ages of the kids and your address. I'll see what I have around (including something for dad to throw with them). Not promising anything, just what I have around. :)

    So update. First weekend out and in the frigid temps, and the kids still enjoyed it, even though they had softball practice and hardball, and pinewood derby racing finals. The boy said it was his favorite of the weekend, but I think he enjoyed putting on all the gear and looking like a warrior.

    The mouthpiece not so much. But lacrosse as a game seems to be a pretty cool.

    They asked if I wanted to coach, and I know nothing about lacrosse, but I guess they just need bodies on the field.and not everyone was back from vacation but, they had 35 boys for the 1st grade class on one side, and only 8 girls on their side of the field. The girls coach did seem to be really passionate about Lacrosse, the boy's coach was more trying to handle the crowd.

    Quick observation is that the parking lot was filled with totally different cars/SUVs than the softball and little league parking lots. Parents gave out a totally different vibe.

    What is a good training net that we can use? Some other things we should be working on. Let me start learning myself.

    Don't buy a goal unless they get serious. You can most likely head over to the high school or middle school and there might be one there.

    Get yourself a stick and throw with them. There are a million videos on the yougores to teach you and them. Paul Rabil did a series of how tos and they are pretty good to get you started.

    Not yet. If they get serious, yeah, it's money well spent. Or just find a concrete wall and use that.

    Coaches will go on about doing walball and they are right. But throwing with Mom, Dad and anyone they can find will do them more good right now.

    Agree to all of this. A rebounder is great but a wall is free for the time being. Once they get to having the stick in their hands several times a week then a rebounder, net (plus large backstop net) become valuable.

    My son is 4 and a half and in Pre-K, our U6 league just started up and I've been coaching his team now and really at this age (and even new U8 players) they just need to scoop, cradle, catch, then throw. We are working a lot with scooping and running. Right now we are in a gym and it's funny watching the kids try to scoop off the gym floor - they mostly just end up pushing the ball halfway to the next county as it just rolls.
