Upcoming Events

Fast Break Initiative (FBI) Weekend

March 2013

This will include Level 1 & 2 coach's training for men and women, official's clinics, and phys-ed curriculum seminars. More details will follow, but please circle the weekend on your calendar. This should de-conflict with the end of winter sports and the start of spring sports, so we are expecting a big turnout.

For youth coaches this will be "one stop shopping" for your Level 1 certification, including the Level 1 Live Field Clinic and PCA Double Goal Clinic. You will basically walk away certified. US Lacrosse is covering much of the cost and we are working to find additional sponsors to reduce or eliminate the cost for NVTYLL coaches. This will be your best opportunity to comply with the league's head coach training policy which goes into full effect this season - no excuses, no exceptions.

Please pass the word along in the lacrosse community. Let your high school coach, local girls coaches, your school's phys-ed instructors, and anyone interested in officiating know about the event. This will be a great weekend to help grow the game in Vermont!
