Novato Lacrosse Monthly Stick Skill Sessions

2021 Fall Stick Skill Sessions Information

New! Monthly Stick Skills sessions


The single most important aspect of the sport of lacrosse is the stick and how it is used. The single most effective way to contribute as a teammate and win as a team is to be proficient with your stickhandling skills.  This means being able to throw, catch and cradle with both hands which requires understanding the proper technique and then practice….practice….practice!!!


If you’ve bought into this concept then these training sessions are for you.  Introducing Novato Lacrosse Club Stick Skills Training Sessions for girls and boys 3rd through 8th grade.  


Who should sign up?.....


  • New players Never played before and want to learn how to throw, catch and cradle a lacrosse stick? These sessions will have skills groups specifically for you!
  • I've only played a year or two? Maybe you're just starting out and want to refine your stick skills and focus on the basics of throwing and catching consistently in game-like situations. These sessions will help you bring your game to the next level!
  • I’m a veteran who plays competitively all year round? Our advanced stick skill group is definitely for you. Learn advanced stick skills like throwing dimes, underhand and side arm throws, and behind the back skills. These workshops will help you add to your existing arsenal of skills.


How it works:

  • Each monthly session will run for 3 consecutive weeks and will be taught by professional lacrosse instructors.
  • The first week of each session will include evaluations in order to place your child in the appropriate skill level group (beginner, intermediate, advanced). This ensures your player will be focusing on the skills they need to work on most.
  • Throughout the course of these sessions, players will have the opportunity to move up from their group as they progress and show improvement.
  • Players will go home each week with drills to practice between each session.
  • Each 60 minute session is fast paced with drills that are designed to emulate game play.



  • Costs:
    • $125 for one monthly session
    • $225 for two monthly sessions
    • $325 for all three sessions (Sept, Oct, and Nov)


  • New NLC Pinnie included in registration fees (only 1 pinnie if you sign up for multiple sessions)
