Coppermine makes learning lacrosse simple, safe, and fun with the Little Lacrosse Academy. Coppermine is thrilled to offer our youngest athletes classes that are fun and engaging for boys and girls. Our high-energy, coed classes bolster your child’s overall growth and development while building a love for lacrosse.
WHAT TO WEAR & BRING Please have your child wear comfortable athletic clothes, sneakers, and bring a labeled water bottle. (50-minute class) Equipment is provided for a great class! If children have a lacrosse stick they would like to bring we welcome those for class.
2-3½ Years (Parent/Child)
Learn the FUNdamentals of lacrosse! This high-energy class introduces children and their parents to the sport of lacrosse through organized games and activities that develop the concept of teamwork while building fundamental social, cognitive, and physical skills in a fun and positive environment. All age- and size- equipment is provided.
3½-4 Years (Parent/Child)
Establishing independence in play is a key component of Fiddlesticks. Children who are ready to be on the field without a parent, thrive in this class. Over the course of a session, children will master movement (with and without the ball), develop agility, improve their cradle, master a groundball pickup, explore passing and catching; all which fosters an understanding of teamwork while having fun.
These fast-paced, team-oriented “practices” are an ideal introduction to the more structured world of organized youth lacrosse but provide the same fun and nurturing concepts the Little Lacrosse Academy prides itself on. While lacrosse fundamentals will continue to be a major focus, cultivating a sense of team and fostering cooperation will be a point of emphasis. As the session progresses, children are given the opportunity to practice these skills in more one-ball oriented activities, (“Team Play”). Team Play is non-competitive and teaches Laxaroos the value of effort, teamwork, and good sportsmanship.
Join us for fast paced lacrosse action played on our sport court in a 6v6 format (co-ed) for those players that have previous lacrosse experience and looking to participate in a more structured organized small field game. A certified small Swax Lax Ball will be used for the games.
Lacrosse Player Development
Coppermine offers a fun, high-energy environment where athletes can build confidence while they advance their interest and skills in lacrosse. All skill levels are welcome!

WHAT TO WEAR & BRING Please have your child wear comfortable athletic clothes, sneakers, cleats or turf shoes, and bring a labeled water bottle. (50-minute class) GIRLS: goggles, mouthguard and stick. BOYS: gloves, mouthguard, stick, helmet, elbow pads.
