Livingston Lacrosse Registration Now Open for Spring Season

November 20, 2013 at 6:55 AM

LIVINGSTON, NJ – The Livingston Lacrosse Club recently announced open registration for the spring 2014 lacrosse season for grades K-8.  Parties interested may sign up now at www.livingstonlacrosse.org.

"Why is lacrosse one of the fasted growing sports in Livingston?  Because it’s a ton of fun to play.  Everyone touches the ball and everyone can score," said Club President Eric Rosenson.  "Livingston youth lacrosse is a fast paced, safe and fun way to improve any athletic skill and is great preparation for other sports that require strength, speed and agility.”

For the upcoming spring 2014 season, kindergarten and first graders are in the "Super Scoopers" division where they play a coed, non-contact form of lacrosse.  At this level, players will develop their running, scooping, cradling, passing and shooting skills in an atmosphere where fun, team work and self-confidence are stressed.  

According to the Club, “fun drills and games will keep the kids moving through the high energy one-hour sessions.”   Super Scooper sessions begin in mid-April and continue into June.

Grades two through five will play each other on in-town teams while grades six to eight will primarily travel to play against other local town teams. These programs begin in March and everyone plays.

The Livingston Lacrosse Club reports its excitement about program growth and the ability to offer more programs to more age groups for the 2014 season.

New this year for the boys, grades six through eight will have teams consisting of up to 20-22 players in order to maximize playing time during the games.  

New this year for the girls, the club will be adding a fifth and sixth grade “Elite Team” chosen from the most competitive players in their respective grades to play other elite teams.  "This new program will allow our most athletic and driven players to test themselves at the highest levels of competition,” said Rosensen.

Winter training is also available to Livingston's youth as the Club is now working with local Lacrosse schools to offer pre-season training lessons at a discount to Livingston players.  This will allow participants to learn the sport’s fundamentals before the spring season while more experienced players can get in shape in order to start the season ready to play.  

Registration for grades two through eight will be open until the end of December. After December, registration is based on space availability and there is a late fee.  Super Scooper registration continues until the end of March.  Practices for grades two through eight start in early March and the Season runs from April until May and early June.

For more information see the web site at www.LivingstonLacrosse.org or contact them at info@livingstonlacrosse.org.

Founded in 1997 the Livingston Lacrosse Club is a feeder program for boys and girls who wish to play on the Heritage Middle School and Livingston High School Lancer Lacrosse teams and is actively supported and advised by the High School coaches. In 2013, over 400 Livingston girls and boys participated in the “in-town” and travel programs.

Getting a Handle on Thanksgiving

This year, on our National Day of Thanks, I would like to express my gratitude for having hands.

We typically don’t thank our body parts because they seldom leave us.  Most of us have not experienced unfortunate accidents or suffered the horrible consequences of war; tragic events  which might cause us to lose a limb.
