Lacrosse is the conduit. The field is the platform.
During lacrosse class, our coaches use the Life Skills Curriculum to teach valuable skills such as setting goals, basic health and nutrition, teamwork, and self-respect through the game of lacrosse. The central purpose of the curriculum is to help students translate the skills learned on the field to areas off the field, such as the classroom, home, and peer relationships.
LtN provides regular field upkeep, maintenance, and all necessary equipment for all of the players. Coaches submit monthly evaluations and reflections to provide valuable and accurate metrics of the growth and success of our program, which allows us to further develop and improve our program.
LtN offers monthly field trips, prizes and special celebrations for lacrosse classes. These trips provide incentive for the classes to work hard and behave well in order to earn the opportunity to go each month. For many of students, this is the first time they have been able to go on a field trip.
