Co-ed Lacrosse for 4, 5, and 6 Year Olds!

 

If they can run... they can play!

The Truckee Tribe is excited to offer a brand new Co-ed 6U Lacrosse program! Boys and Girls, ages 4-6, are encouraged to get their ya-ya's out while trying the game of lacrosse. This is going to be a super fun, super casual, super positive introduction to lacrosse in specific, and team sports in general.

Given the snow this year, we're still finalizing time and location, but here are the basics:

  • Boys & Girls born between 9/1/12 and 8/31/14
  • Six 1-hour "practices" on Saturday mornings
  • Dates: 4/13, 4/27, 5/4, 5/11, 5/18, 6/1
  • Probable start time: 9:00 AM or 10:00 AM
  • Probable location: Riverview Sports Park
  • A Warrior Evo Mini-Warp lacrosse stick is included in registration -- a $40 value!
  • Registration is only $50 per player
  • Parents are strongly encouraged (pretty much required) to participate in practices to learn the sport and help herd the kids
  • US Lacrosse Certified Coaches:  Pete Halberstadt (Level II), Tanner Halberstadt (Level I), Jack Bryant (Level II)

Practices will focus on fun and fundamentals. Kids will play with a real "mini" stick and "soft" lacrosse ball, i.e. no need for helmets, gloves, or pads. Cleats are recommended, but not required.

Additionally, we hope to have a special deal on Warrior adult starter sticks so parents can learn to throw and catch along with their kids. No pressure to do so, but those who commit to learning the sport will find it's incredibly enjoyable and are headed for years of hanging out with their kids, tossing the ball.

At the end of the regular Tribe Youth lacrosse season, we hope to have the opportunity for our Tiny Tribers to scrimmage 6U teams from the Reno area at the High Sierra Lacrosse League (HSLL) Youth Championships.

 

REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN!

Simply click on the "Register Now" button to the right and make it happen. You will, however, be temporarily redirected to US Lacrosse because all "players" will need to be registered members. The annual fee is $35 for Youth, which covers both Spring and Fall seasons. That membership covers insurance and is required by the High Sierra Lacrosse Leauge.

2019 Spring Lacrosse Update

Hi Tribe,

 

The Spring 2019 Season is soon upon us! (the college season has been underway for a few weeks already) Before each season kicks off in earnest, we like to hold an Orientation Meeting for new families. It’s your opportunity to meet some of the coaches, the board of directors and volunteers who make the Tribe run smoothly. We will run through some of the key dates, and hopefully answer all of your questions. We will also be distributing rental gear at this event. As part of the Tribe's mission of making lacrosse accessible to as many kids as possible, we offer rental gear to those who do not yet have their own. This is primarily for our 1st-time players. Our hope is that players who are committed to the sport and know they'll be playing in the future will ultimately invest in their own equipment.

 

Due to the unrelenting snow, we have moved this meeting

2019 Spring Lacrosse Orientation Meeting

Thursdays March 14th, 5:30-8:00pm

TDRPD Rec Center, Rooms #1 and #2

 

If you'd like to rent gear, here's what you need to know:

  • Cost: Boys = $30 with a $150 deposit
  • Cost: Girls = $20 with a $60 deposit
  • Rental fees may be paid by cash or check
  • Deposits must be made by separate check made payable to Truckee Tribe Lacrosse Club
    • You must bring a check for Rental DEPOSIT.  Cash has proven to be problematic as Tribe has grown
  • Deposits are 100% refundable upon return of all rented equipment in good condition
  • When: Thursday March14th, 5:30 to 8pm
  • Where: TDRP Rec Center, Rooms 1 & 2

As many of you are aware, some age groups are holding Pre-Season practices.

Given the snow, demand for practice space and the weather in general we will start club-wide, regular Monday thru Friday practice starting the week of 3/18.

 

The plan is to be on the ACMS Black-Top (basketball courts) a day or two and in a gym (Veterans Hall) a day or two. Please bear with us, the demand for gym space and snow-cleared  fields is massive. Older age brackets will also be scheduling some practice in the Reno Sports Dome. Organizing and Scheduling this all is a challenge. (although the skiing is great)

 

Key Dates for Spring 2019 Season:
  • 1/22/19 - Registration Opened..  Please register ASAP and get word out
  • 3/14/19 — Parent/Player orientation and rentals - 5:30-8:00p TDRPD Rec Ctr. Rooms 1&2
